Very Wished Maie. Ciiea..
Colonel Joe Peaks, of Dover, tells a
good story about an Incident that en
livened his early law practice. John
Fuller was once sherift an Penobsoot
county. Afterward he was colonel of
the Sixth Maine. and be was first in
the ranks of the great unterrified all
the way through.
One day in the epoch when Fuller
was sheriff a writ of replevin was
placed in his hands. It was to ht.

a name as any. Now the Tufts lived
away out in a lonely district, and they
were wicked citizens frow the word g,
This writ of replevin was called out
by a horse trade in whichtheTuffshlha
robbed a man of a good beast under
pretense of trading. Fuller was ex
pected to go over to the Tufts' strong
hold and bring away that horse.
Colonel Peaks was a young lawyer
in those days and lie was not surpriiel
when Fuller drove around and asked
for his company upon a short business
trip. After they had gone a short dis
tanee Peaks asked:
"Where are you going, Fuller s"

The Sea Cucumber.
Among the curious animals which in

however, the danger i" past, the animal
cornnuences to replan- the organs which
it has voluntarily partr" with, and in a
-hurt time the animal is as perfect as
ever it was.
Dr. Johnstone kept one in water for
a long time and one day be forgot to
change the water. The creature in
conseluence ejected its intestines and
shriveled up, but when the water was
changed, all its organs were repro
duced. Although the animal is not
eaten in Europe, it is a favorite with
the Chinese, anl the flshing forms an
anmportant part of the industry of the
east. Thous.nds of junks are annually
used in fishing for trepang. as the aui

Itinerant Photographers.
The photographer of the poor and
humble used to be a man who ran a
gallery on wheels. In New York he is
now a man who works the back streets
very much after the fashion of an or
gan grinder. He pays no rent , He I
plants his camera in front of a small
butcher shop or shoe shop or notion

strikes a bargain. To protest that no
picture Is wanted does no good. The
man takes it anyhow. saylng, a Iasi

Perhaps In four oases out of five the
quarter is forthcoming. A amart butch
or wagon or a rain grocer's driver, a
nice truck team or a brace of mules or
a pet dog, they all come within this
stealing photographer's business. And
on good days he picks up a neat sum
of money.-New York Herald.
A lltausinug Outflt.
In starting out on a collecting trip
one should provide himself with a good
hand lens of rather high power, a pocket
knife, some wrapping paper and string,
and either a portfolio or a tin collecting
box, aecording to whether it is desired
to press the plantts in the field or after
return to quarters. One should al.o
carry some envelopes and a few pill
boxes. - Washington Star.

The Policy of the Aster Family.
The wealth of the Astors is remark
able for the .ay in which it has been
kept intact, and for the steady and
considerably rapid augmentation which
is continually taking place. The elder
Astor made a mint of money out of the
fur trade, and would have continued
in that business, but he found that in
vestment in real estate was vastly more
profitable. The family has steadily ad
