In such category must come the fish market in Hono lulu to people accustomed to seeing fish of temperate waters there is no t^irfprehensoin of the strange forms that denizens of the deep take on in those countries where the water is continually warm When I first walked down the aisles of the Honolulu fish market I had to take a sudden reef in my memory to see if I had been drinking anything re cently that would give one queer visions. I did not exactly see blue monkeys with green tails, but I saw sucjv verlgated coloring and such im possible shapes In fish that I thought ,/tny mind must have become warped by the climate. We are so accustomed to having a certain shape in our minds when fish are mentioned that we cannot asso ciate any other shape with the finny tribe, but that idea received a severe jolt when I saw a trunk fish lying on the Counter, looking all tie world like a grotesque Japanese jewel box. Imagine a fish about five Inches long, with square sides and entfc, separated by sharp corners. At one end a queer little snout surmounted tp two beady eyes, and at the other 8 caricature of a tail, while two little fins adorn the sides. If your imagination is good you can see in your mind'seye a trunk fish. It is not edible, bit when it -ja taken in the net with ither kinds sent to market as a curiosity, it the trunk fish is mid in com parison with the puppy eel. Take the most loathsome, slimy an ale that you can conceive of, and in pace of a Bnake head put on it the lead of a new born puppy, ears and all, and you will have an object thd will fill you with disgust.

I thought at first that these were painted china fish used for signs, and it was only when I held one in my hands that I was convinced to the contrary. On one table lay a lot of cuttle fish, yunger brothers to the devil fish, and from which the bone that is put in canary bird cages comes. Hawalians prize this fish highly and make most palatable dish of it by boiling it in coconut milk. I tasted of this dish with considerable hesitancy at first but found it very delicate in flavoring, and came to the conclusion that all things are not near so bad as they look. a Hawaiian waters are noted for their sharks and the fish market would not be complete without a few of these ferocious sea pirates. But the sharks I saw there were not of the regulation kind. They were edible, and had a most peculiar head. Instead of the head that well ordered fish ought to have these had heads that extended out on both sides of the body, much like a double hammer. In fact they were hammer headed sharks. It is said that some of the finest fillets of sole that Is served in high priced ho tels comes from this shark, and those who pay fancy prices for know they are getting anything but the finest fish. it never In the old days the natives made a gala day of market day and brought in their wares with songs and rejolc If they caught a peculiar fish it was the reason for special rejoicing. Now all this is changed, and Japan ese do all the fishing, making it a business in which there is no plea sure. ing. But the fish market has the same old charm so far as the peculiar inhabitants of the waters are con cerned, and what is lost in sentiment is gained in additional varieties of fish to gaze upon and wonder at.

'IN THE FOG.' JACKSON DOINGS DOWN TO DATE Jackson, Miss., October 22.—Insur ance men generally, and agents of surety companies in particular will be interested in a case decided by the supreme court of Mississippi, in which the insurance commissioner comes out loser. The case was that of W. Q. Cole, insurance commissioner vs. American Surety Company, an appeal from the Hinds County circuit court L. Brame, Jr., the young attorney of this city, who mysteriously disap peared at Vicksburg a few months since, as agent for the Surety Com pany, applied to the commissioner for license to transact business in Hinds County, tendering $5 as the fee for such license. The commissioner de manded $30 as the fee for privilege, and Brame declined to pay. He then instituted mandamus proceedings to compel the insurance commissioner to accept the $5 as the legal privilege tax due in cities of over 2,000 inhabi tants. The mandamus was granted by the court below, and the supreme court affirms that decision. The effect is that agents for guarantee and sure ty companies will have to pay a privi lege tax of only $5 per annum In each county, whereas heretofore they have paid $30. Railroad Commissioner. The Railroad Commission met today and found itself confronted with a large amount of business, a great deal of which is directed at the telephone and the telegraph companies.
