ON THE GRAND BANKA
How anil Cod and Halibut Art Taken by the Small Vcaacts. GUPIAV Kobbt* writes an article eu- Mtled "On the t;rand Banks and Else vhere?#>for Si. Nicholas. Mr. Kobbc nays; The trawlers are generally found on ihe Grand Banks, the hand-liners on the Western Bank and guiro. These tnnd-liners are smaller vessels with fewer dories, and the men fish with hand-lines, one man and two linos to a dory. The Hand-liner sits in the middle of his dorj*. with a compart ment In its stern, another in its bow, for his catcli. When .von see the bow •ticking far up in the air, you know the£fthcrrauu has his stern-load. Then, •s Ush after fish flushes into the other TO impart men I. the bow settles, and when the dory is on an even keel the hand-liner pulls back to the vessel. The trawlers hail with fresh her -ing, mackerel, and squid: the hand- Iners with salt clams. The catch of both is split and suited, and the vessel has a full "fare," or catch, when she has "wet her salt." thai is, used up all her salt and Is full of fish. A traw ter's voyage lasts about eight weeks; a wand-liner's, eleven. A trawler's crew receives no wages, but fishes on shares. First., the cap tain gets a percentage; of the remain ier one-half goes to the vessel, which "finds," that is. supplies the gear, •tores, salt, ami half the bait; and the other half to the captain and crew in shares, which run from sllO to flso, and even to $250. But among the hand-liners each man U paid according to what he catches, the "fare" from each dory being weighed as it is taken aboard. This ftlmulates competition. There is ludgiiieut in knowing where to llsk, or how long to stay over a certain spot; and eveu llic quickness with which a line is hauled in will make a percepti ble difference at the end of u day's fish ing. It means something to be "high line," as they call the best fisherman, at the end of a voyage, and those who win this distinction time and again, as •ome do. become known as "killers" and "big fishermen." The main catch on the Hanks is cod and halibut. There Is also a tloet of small American vessels which pursues the merry awordflsli. Swordflshing is good sport whaling on a small scale A man. dart in hand, stands in the vessel's bow. supported by semi-cir eular iron brace. When near enough to the fish, he lets fly the dart. A sword fish may weigh 350 pounds. One •ail tow a dory a mile, and a piece of the sword lias been found driven through the bottoni'ofa pilot boat. Put to Many Uses. Sharks furnish a number of valuable products. The liver of the shark con tains an oil that posseses medicinal qualities equal to those of ood-llvcr oil. The skin after being dried takes the polish and hardness of mother-of-pearl. The fins are always highly prized by the Chinese, who pickle them and serve them at dinner as a most delicate dish. The Europeans, who do not appreciate the fins a#a food, convert thorn into a fish-glue. As for the flesh of the shark —that, despite its oily taste, is eaten in certain countries. The Ice landers, who do a large business lu sharks' oil. send out annually a fleet of a hundred vessels for the capture of the great tisli. Kpftzbcrgcn Hotel.

I It wus at a smoker and foaiuur of I the telegraph operators that tin- (lean i of the key Jugglers told this one, says tho Detroit Free Frew: "What brings It to niiutl is the yellow fever reports from the south. All that you read ran give you no proper con cept lon of the reign of terror prevail ing down there during the epidemic. When they first ran a railroad into our of the? richest mining districts of Ala baniu I was made operator of a little Toss-roads station. It took a long time to convince the natives that I could talk to all parts of the world with that little 'click.it'' machine of mine. I finally was able to convince them. The wife of one of their numl>er had ( gone to Mobile to attend a sick daugh | ter who had been the beauty of the neighborhood and had immortalized her memory by beiug taken to some other j part of the world by a rich husband. Through an arrangement with the Mo bile operator the old couple carried on a conversation of such a personal na ture that neither could doubt the iden tity of the other. Then iho common j superstition of the people intervened and tlicy concluded that tho lnsLru ! incut was an invention of the devil. "While they were in this frame of mind there came tlio news of the yel low fever. Force was the most lut tural way of resisting all kinds of vils down there and for days t he depot was occupied by armed men. Never was a more efficient quarantine es tablished. No one could get on or off of the cars at that i>olnt. Even con <luetor>. brakenien, engineers and tin men had to stick to their iots. One day 1 received a telegram from New Orleans for a gentleman who was held by the quarantine. Ii announced that his son was better and would survive. Foolishly I read It to the grim guard In the depot. They snatehed the u;ps | sage from me with a howl, all the tnore i savage because the paper was yellow.

In the queen's garden was planted a long row of sweet peas which grew and blossomed as only sweet peas in a queen's garden could grow and blos som. How lovely they were, and what a delight were they to the queen. One bright June morning three tiny buds commenced to feel their way out to the sun, and that they might 'see the queen when he passed by. Bui long before it was time for the little buds to bloom, they were caught by one of the tendrils of the vine which held them fast, so that the stem on which they grew was bent all out of shape. One afternoon the gardener passed by, and he saw the little crooked stem. "Oh," said the flowers, "he will snip us off and throw us away; for would not the queen feel sorry If she should come along and And us growing here?" And this the gardener was just ready to do when something attracted his attention, so that he forgot all about snipping them off, and for a time they were safe. Just at sunset the queen passed by. "Oh," cried the poor little flowers, "let us hide, so that the queen cannot see our deformity." But the queen did see them. "What sweet little flowers," she exclaimed, "and this evening in my hair will 1 wear you. Would God that my crown were one-half as fair as the sweet faces of these lovely flowers." AH that evening tne good queen wore the happy little flowers, and then, when she retired for the night she placed them in a tiny Jeweled vase, that they might keep sweet and fresh for the morrow. "Oh." exclaimed my poor little de formed boy, "is that a truly true story?" "Almost," I replied. "Tell me tlie true part of It," hs asked eagerly. "You are the little sweet pea blos som, my boy, and mother is your queen." How the little lad's eyes shone when he joyfully cried out, "Oh! Oh! Oh! and the queen loves me. I knew sho did. lam so glad, mamma." "Yes," I replied, hugging him close to mother's breast, "I do love you. But Jesus loves us more than we can possibly love each other, and He has seen me, and He has seen my darling boy, and' we know Him; so that by aud by He will come and take us home to dwell with Him; there all the crooked shall he made straight, my precious boy." "Oh. how lovely," ex claimed the little lad. Bay Ci-j-, Mich. Joining the Salvation Army. Mary B. would like very much to join the Salvation Army, but her fam ily and friends oppose her so violent ly that she has not the courage to take the step. She knows that her whole heart and soul are absorbed in their work and feels that there Is no field in which she could he so useful to the world and so satisfactory to herself. It is almost a matter of conscience with lier, but she has been brought up to the habits of the strictly obedience to her parents. She is only twenty years of agd and some of her people advise her to wait a year cr no and see If her present enthusiasm con tinues. If so she Will be of age and can do as she pleases; if not the ques tion will settle itself. Answer: The counsel of your friends is eminently wise and proper. Young persons often 'take violent fancies and become filled with philanthropic ideas that they ! abandon as they grow older and see more of the world. The best course for you to pursue is to keep youi heart full of benevolence >and good works, and If. when the year or two of waiting has rolled round, you still desire to ' become a Salvation Army lassie, the editor 'will wish you God speed. rtliy h Home Hate. a Camel. Ani.nals hive their' likes and dis likes as well as men, and they are quite as hard to explain. A' cat nat urally dislikes and fears a dog. The elephant hates mice and dogs.' Horses loathe camels, and will not stay In the same block with them if they can help It. It is hard to give a cause for these | aversions. Why should the horse dis like the harmless camel and be fond of the dog? It must be that the horse has a dormant sense of beauty and of humor. The ideal of the horse Is grace, combined with strength. He disapproves from the bottom of hia na ture of the hopelessly vulgar, awkward and unesthetlcal camel. The bear, he sees at once, though clumsy, is unpre- ' tentious, truthful and not devoid of a , sense of humor. The dog ho recog- I nlzes as a good fellow, companionable and unselfish. A strong bond between the dog and the horse is that they are . both fond of sport, whereas a camel would not go an inch to see the best race that was ever run. Sport on the Ice. One of the most exciting of winter sports is the sled merry-go-round. It is built very much like an ordinary boy's whirligig, only it is placed on the ice. And for genuine fun it cannot be equaled. Any boy can make a sled merry-go round. All the material necessary is a stout post, long enough to reach through the ice and find a secure rest ing place in the mud or sand in the bottom of the pond. It should reach about three feet above the surface. When it is put in place a hole may be cut in the ice Just large enougn to ad mit it, and a heavy mallet will drive it Into place in the bottom of the pond. If it is left over night the water will freeze close around it and hold it solid. In the top of the post a large, round bolt or spike should be driven. The whirligig part of the merry-go-round is a long plank cr scantling with a hole in the middle just large enough, to fit over the bolt or spike. When this is in place the merry-go-round is complete. Before it is used, however, it is well to grease the top of the post and bolt so that the plank will slip around easily. Any number of exciting games may be played with the sled merry-go round. Perhaps the best of these is the sled contest. Two stout sleds are attached to the ends of the plank by long ropes. A boy sits on each of them. Then half a dozen other boys stand near the post and set the plank to turning, exactly as in a whirlgig. Of course the sleds travel at exhilarat ing speed, swinging out at the ends of the ropes and slipping and sliding over the smooth ice faster and faster, until the rider rolls off like the end boy in cracking the whip. The boy who can stick to his sled longest is the winner of the game. Another exciting game is played without sleds. Skaters take hold of the ropes, and see how long they can hold on after the merry-go-round is WHIRLIGIG SKATING. started. And sometimes, when they go, they aro whirled rods away across . the ice. Any boy who is getting up a skating rink for the winter should not fail to have a sled merry-go-round as one of its attractions. Seven-Year-Old Hero. New York Telegram: Monday sev en-year-old Abraham Eckerson of Guttenburg, N. J., was playing soldier with his five little brothers and sis ters in the kitchen, when they were suddenly confronted by seventeen writhing, hissing copperhead snakes. The largest, three feet long, led the , rest, and was making toward the children when the boy saw it. He also saw the danger of his companions and screamed at them to run out ol the room. They were so frightened that they could scarcely move hand or foot. Abraham drew hi 3 wooden sword from his belt, and, jumping in j the front of the rest, struck the big copperhead a stinging blow. It recoil ed, bleeding. He then advanced on the enemy and felled three more of the snakes that seemed ready to spring at the children. The whole body of snakes retreated as Abraham wielded his weapon. In the meantime his com- | panlons were screaming as loud as they #ould. Their cries brought in Mrs. Eckerson, armed with a poker and a powerful dog. Rex. While the Newfoundland dog jumped and gnaw- | ed at the wriggling mass Mrs. Ecker son thrust the children from the room. 1 She then returned and killed the rep- j tiles that still showed life. When the ' good work was over Mrs. Eckerson fainted from fright and excitement The snakes are supposed to have been thawed out of a fog which had just been hauled from the woods and plac ed beside the fire.
