Its Building One of the Interesting Sights of Washington. , Exhibit of Curious Finny Specimens Caught In American Rivera, Cakes and ilia Ocean—-Vrnataceana of Peculiar Shape and Hue. [Special Washington Letter.! One of the most interesting sights of VYashington, and one which attracts ■parked attention /rein visttofa to the capital cyiy, ife the United Sftftes fish commission. , ffcia a peculiar fact that residents of this city do not seem to he fully alive to thte beauties and advantages of their own surroundings. It is very seldom a native Washingtonian visits the fish commission, q#>r lqrd|ainattcr of that any other ‘ pflnllc ' Vmilding. J The j -straqgei*, who come here for a brief stay, oan tell more c£ou£.the different places of interest than many a life-long r fH' i,.u t fl The nsh commission is located in a /jpipclv square building of red brick ■4ituaw3r in about the center of what is known as “’Jhc May ’’ a forest which exte*id|ijf((pir| lyojf> Wash ington monument. Uis not one |of the beauties of Washington architecture, as if it had been dropped carelessly from the clouds into tile cen ter of the beautiful park in which it stands. That is how it looks from tho outside. Now let us examine fhe in tqyior., We pdll cpter the building care less and ? light-htei4ed, and come out nearly weighted down with the, extent of our information and with a profound contempt fap our lack of infor inatiqn. TSfuly thepe a rot many things ®f which tHe averjge/man knows noth ing and one of them is about fish. Mr. Robert Timbers, who has been con nected with the commission since 1881, is the man who knows it all, and he al ways kindly exhibits to visitors the dif ferent curios of the department and tells what he knows of them. All tho exhibits are on the ground floor, the remainder of the building be ing turned into offices for the use of the commissioner and his assistants. The froo* room is full of oblong tables each cont aining 33 jars of water in which arc young shad in the different stages of propagation. Tho water comes in under pressure from tho Potomac river, and a perfect system of rubber tubes keeps the water changing all the time. It requires from three to ten days to hatch out tho eggs, depending entirely upon tho temperature of the water used. Each of the jars holds from 80,- 000 to 130,000 eggs and when all are hatched they are taken to the carp ponds, large tanks connected with the river, and from there let out into the Potomac. The fish commission claims the credit for the excellent reputation of the Potomac river shad, stating that without their help in stocking the river the shad would now be almost if not quite extinct. From the hatching station wo pass into what is called the marine grotto, a long passage or court, lined on either side with glass tanks containing different varieties of the finny tribe. The roof to this passage is of glass to let the sunlight into the aquaria. It is interesting to note the action of the sun on the different grasses and forms of vegetable life which cling to and grow upon the sides of the tanks. Where the sun strikes them they are a deep green, but whore they are in continual shade, their color is a dark brown. The first tank contains sea an , emoncs, a lower form of animal lift or, rather, between the animal and the vegetable. They attach them selves to the stones and gravel at the bottom of the sea. In the next tank we see a group of sand and rainbow darters, a highly colored species of small fish. They have no svtimming power like other fish, but get through the water by v peculiar jumping mo tion, very amusing to see. Very interesting indeed is a school of young shad hatched last April. The commissioner has tried an experiment A SPECIAL PET. . by transporting them from fresh water directly into salt water. Out of 173 only 10 have been lost. The usual course is to place‘them in "different tanks where the water is gradually in creased in saltiness, but the successful experiment with these young shad Would seem to indicate that this slow process is unnecessary. The next aquatic wonders are two horseshoe or king crabs, very peculiar looking ob jects, all claws. A strange thing about these crabs is that they are each sup plied with four eyes, two in the center and one on either side of their heads. The commission has made some ex periments with clams and oysters, but as the tanks are not properly supplied with mud it is very difficult to keep the bivalves alive. An aquarium of hog chokers, or American sole, is the next attraction in this novel place. They are, to all intents and purposes, dead, as they lie on J,he bottom of the tank all but their eyes covered with sand. In marked contrast to the “chokers” are the striped bass in the next tank. These fish grow to a large size and when fully developed weigh from S3 to 70 pounds. One of the big fellows in the tank has been given the name of Her bert Gill In honor of Agent GUI, of the tommMon, who wight him peaks bay. He la one of Mr. Timbers* special pets, and came to the top of the tank to eat a piece of cracker from his hand. An amusing little fish is the “sailors’ choice,” or grunting fish, so called be cause they emit a peculiar sound like I the grunting of a pig when caught. Perhaps the crustacean which will impress us most is the large red lobster, the only one of its kind we ever saw or heard of. All the other lobsters in tha aquarium are of a greenish blue color, but this particular high-priced delicacy is a deep scarlet and looks like tho boiled lobsters we have at table. Ho was caught at Rockland, Me., but seems quite content with his present quarters. ’ Next was a group of flounders, a slug gish fish like the hog chokers. These fish have two eyes on the same side of the head. It is claimed by scientists that wfien hatched their eyes are on op posite sides, but nature teaches tliem to push vine eye in uiftil it comes out on the opposite side with tho other. As they are generally lying flat on their sides, their eye, coming in contact with the sand, would eventually be put out, and it isclaimed that it therefore works through to the other side. One of the resist curious forms of eggs are those of the whelk. These are of a - _ j /y ’# ISfSf it m ' THE CANNIBAL EEL. spiral shape about a foot in length. They are all laid at once, but are hard* ened by coming in contact with the water, and finally stiffen to such a do* greo as to become perpendicular in tha water. In looks they arc very like a miniature accordeon all pulled out. In the next tanks we see blue crabs swimming with a peculiar motion and using their claws as rudders; also a small colony of toad fish of the color of a shepherd's plaid, very palatable look ing fish, but they arc more of scaven gers than anything else. In the large aquaria arc all sorts and conditions of trout, bass, perch and other food fish. In one of the cells all by himself is a giant hell-bender, or mad puppy. lie is four feet long and the proud possessor of a pair of scarlet gills. Another curiosity is a soft-shell turtle, a sort of pet who came to the surface of the water to have us examine his shell, which is perfectly soft and as pliable as India rubber. A small lot of sticklebacks are also exhibited with much pride by Mr. Timbers, who lays great stress upon the fact that they have from three to nine spines, which is not bad for a fish. There are many other kinds of fish, but a detailed account of the inhabitants of this romantic grotto would fill a book. We could tell of the veteran eel who has been an inmate of the commis sion for five years and who had to be placed in solitary confinement on.account of his cannibalistic proclivities, and who now peers anxiously through the glass partition of his cell at his more fortu nate brethren; of the pollywogs and their transition to bullfrogs, in which process most people imagine that their tails drop off, but which are in reality absorbed when the legs make their appearance; of the long-nosed and shortrposed gar pike, who go nosing around like a parcel of old -maids at a Sunday-school picnic. There is an immense tub of salt water in the rear and a small engine is inces santly pumping this water to a cham ber St the top of the building and then IctVng it (town suddenly at a pressure of 35 pounds. It is then passed through a rubber tube jvith glass nozzle and shot directly : into the tanks, thus abating the water. After this it drains out through a sand filter and passes to the original tub in the rear yard. If you ever come to Washington don’t fail to visit the fish commission. Smith D. Fbt. The Lady and the Mirror. It is said by those who arc fond ■’ casting reflections themselves that no woman can pass a mirror without look ing into it. This is stated as fact, established by long observation, but no one has ever had the 'Hardihood t 4 try to explain why. A good many people have hinted that it was because the ladies wanted to admire the set of a bonnet, the sparkle of a diamond os, most audacious of all, their own chmely faces, ft has re mained' for a little miss of four —and children speak the truth—to do tardy justice to her sex and prove that the habit is certainly not due to personal vanity. This little girl the other day climbed into a chair facing a handsome mirror and when she nodded she beheld the re flection of her own bright features. She turned to her mother in petulance, ex claiming: “Mamma, every time I try to look in the glass my face gets in the way.”— Boston Herald.

Could You If You Were Confined In an Asylum? Some Interesting Facts from a Prominent Scientific Man Who Has Had a Most Valuable Experience* ( Chicago Journal .) We sometimes see in tho papers a thrill ing account of where a perfectly sane par son has been confined In an asylum. Think of it, reader 1 How long would you retain your senses If you wore confined with ft number of lunatics, night and day, and yet think of the physicians in charge of these patients who are compelled, day by day and year by year, to live among them. What wonderful opportunities they have for studying characteristics and vagaries; what a wonderful chance for learning the miseries of Ilfs and how best to overcome them. Wcare brought to these reflections by a conversation lately had with Dr. J. C. Spray, of 103 State Street, Chicago. For nearly ten years Doctor Spray was in charge of the Jefferson, now Dunning, In stitute, at Dunning, 111. This tremendous institution contained about twelve hundred patients in the Insane Department, and fif teen hundred in tho infirmary, Among this large number of persons there were a vast number of physical ailments. Dr. Spray, speaking about it, said: “I traced the groat cause for most of the mental and indeed physical disorders very carefully, and while some authorities make ou estimate that seventy-five per cent, of tho people in the United Slates are a filleted with some form of kidney disease, I do not think that the rate is so high, taking all ages into consideration. Before middlo life it is less than seventy-five iier cent, but after middle life it is, 1 should think, fully that percentage.” “This is something terrible, Doctor. Few people can certainly be aware that so 'arge a percentage exists!” The Doctor thought a moment and then said: “It is a fact not generallyTreeognized that where a person has diseased kidneys and the organs fail to perform (heir func tions of removing the waste and the im purities from the system, It soon produces melancholia. Asa result our asylums are filled to overflowing, while If tiie people would strike at tho root of tho matter and see that their kidneys were in good order, there would be fewer patients ill tho asy lums. I have noticed that a large portion of nil paresis cases had kidney difficulties.” “What have you found, Doctor, to be the standard and most reliable remedy in such cases!” Dr Spray spoke with great confidence. He said; “Having so many oases to treat, I tried various remedies, and after a long and exhaustive trial, finally decided that Warner’s Safe Cure was the most ef fective and most reliable remedy. I found it specially reliable in cases of incipient Bright’s disease. It is certain to stop it, and even in the advanced conditions it al lays the disease, and to my surprise at first, cured many cases. Before structural changes set in, it is certain to cure, if prop erly administered.” “Has your experience while at the asylum. Doctor, been confirmed in your general practice since leaving ill” “Yes. I have occasion to use tho Safe Cure almost daily. Whenever 1 find traces of albumen in tho urine of a patient, 1 pre scribe the Safe Cure, and in nearly every Instance where I notice indications of nerv ous troubles, I analyze the urine, and almost invariably find that it is caused by some af foction of tho kidneys. 1 now have n pa tient to whom 1 am giving the Safe Cure, and find that it is having the desired effect. Some time ago a gentleman came to me, who had been examined for life insurance, and traces of albumen were found. 1 ad vised the use of tho Safe Cure, and he passed the examination without difficulty after having used it.” “1 understand, then, Doctor, that you at tribute a large percentage of the ills of life to some disease of the kidneys, and that you have found the remedy of which you speak the most effective in such cases.” “Yes. Ihave no hesitation in saying that Warner's Safe Cure has my unqualified en dorsement. I use it constantly, and would not, do so unless I thought it possessed cura tive qualities.” The high standing, wide experience and groat success of Dr. Spray make his words exceedingly Impressive. Their sincerity cannot be questioned, and their truthful ness is absolute. Impressed with this fact, and realizing the importance of tho same, I have transcribed his words in full and give them herewith.
