The lobster, crab and oyster fisheries of the British coasts are. threatened in the unprecedented swarms of octopus oi cuttle tish that have recently appeared on both sides of the channel. Their in crease was first noticed in the spring of 1899, since when it has been so progres sive that the hosts of the predatory ceph alopoda have become a perfect marine plague, from the vast quantities of shell fish consumed by them. The fshermen on their side, are not slow in retaliating' and take them at the rate of about fitly per man per week. In practical culinary trance they are sold and eaten their flesh being said to be very delicate and resembling lobster in flavor. The so-call ed bone is used for polishing the softer metals.

Minn, ; lilllli RELATIONS BETWEEN XX A AND RUSSIA APPEAL TO BE SOME WHAT STRAINED MINISTER WTJ WANTS TO KNOW Called at the State Department at Washington Yesterday In Search of Any 1 ii formtion / In Sight. WASHINGTON, April 8.-The Chinese minister was an early caller at the state department today to seek information as to the report, based on advices to the state department, that there had been an interruption of the diplomatic inter course between Russia and China. Mr. Wu had not been advised of any such development, and the information before the state department was so contradic tory that.it did not permit any clear ex planation of the real state of affairs. The doubt arises from the fact that Mr. Rockhill's latest dispatch does not mention any such disarrangement, and the officials feel bound to eccept th a as pretty strong evidence that prior in timations of discord have not taken act ual form. Yet the dispatch received from Mr. Squires, the American charge d'af faires in the absence of Minister Conger, appears to have been <juite explicit that the difficulty already had made Itself manifest. It is thought possible at th© state departnu at that the circumstance to which Mr. Squires rf-ferred Occurred prior to the receipt In Pekln of the last Russian note, and that the trouble may have been adjusted subsequently. The state department maintains an at titude of doubt and expectancy, ar-ft is not prepared to admit that thf^ft has been any interruption of intercourse be tween the two countries, either limited or complete. Aside from the telegraphic advices, there are some attending circumstances which indicate that at least some stralrf or partial interruption of intercourse hag occurred. The fact d«veloped in Wash ington about a week ago that Russia had delivered to China what amounted to an ultimatum on the signing of the Man churian agreement. This followed the usual course of ultimatums and flxed a definite limit of days within which China could act. It also conveyed the clear intimation that unfavorable action by China would lead to a severance of dip lomatic relations between the two coun tries. The limit of time fixed Is believed to have been one week, and to have ex pired last Wednesday. China did not sign within the time limit, and the next day, Thursday, Russia addressed her note to the powers, which has been accepted as removing the pressure over the Man churian agreement. This at first seemed to be a waiver of her prior intimation of an interruption of diplomatic intercourse, and yet there was no such explicit waiver, and the latest advices from Pekin, reporting that an interruption has now actually occurred, seem to be di rectly in line with the threat previo-Jftly conveyed. The peculiar state of diplomatic rela tions between the Russian foreign office and the Chinese ministor at St. .Peters burg give further evidence that friction has occurred. The illness of Yang Yu was the cause ascribed for his failure to sign the agreement. There is good rea son to believe that the Russian authori ties did not regard this sickness of Yang Yu as occurring in good faith, but look ed upon it as a device to avoid action. The St. Petersburg dispatches now state that Yang Yu's sickness has so increased since his last interview with Count Lams dorf that he may have to withdraw. This is accepted here in well-posted quarters as a delicate intimation that the Rus sian government has expressed Its dis approval in such a way that Yang Yu's withdrawal will follow in consequence. But there appears to be an outward avoidance of any rupture. It is expected that Yang Yu's term ended atoouf a year ago, and that he then asked to return to Pekin. The government acceded, and Quai Chun was appointed as his succes sor. Owing to the Boxer uprising, Qual Chun did not go to St. Petersburg, but remained to become a member of the tsung 11 yamen. Should Yang Yu retire now, it will be claimed that it Is In the prior programme. In case there proves to be an Inter ruption of the relations between Russia and China, It is not expected to disar range the negotiations between the pow ers and China or between Rus'sla and the powers. It probably would be con fined to a termination of the close en tente long maintained between Kussia and China. President Dines With Hanna. WASHINGTON.

St. Nicholas. During one of the last birthday cele brations of the poet Whittier he was vis ited by a celebrated oratorio singer. The lady was asked to sing, and, seating her self at the piano, she began the beautiful ballad "Robin Adair." She had hardly begun before Mr. Whittier's pet dos came into the room, and, seating himself by her side, watched her as if fascinated, and listened with delight unusual in an animal. When she finished he came and put his paw very gravely into her hand and licked h3r cheek. "Robin takes that as a tribute to him self," said Mr. Whittier. "Ho also is 'Robin Adair.' The; dog, hearing his own name, evi dently considered that he was the hero of the song. From that moment, during the lady's visit, he was her devoted at tendant. He kept by her side when she was indoors, and accompanied her when she went to walk. When she went away he carried her satchel in his mouth to the gate, and watched her departure with every evidence of distress. A Smart Starling. Philadelphia Record.

Being unable to reach the water, it picked up stones and peb bles and dropped them into the can in order to raise the level of the water. Just as it was succeeded a gardener came along and tilted the can so that the bird might relieve its thirst.
