Walsh, iu Tho Popu lar Science Monthly, thus recalls tho origin of the present menhaden indus try: "It was in 18.10 when an old lady, Mrs. John Rartlott of lilnchill, MtL, boiling some fish for her chickens, ob served a thin scum of oil upon the sur face of the wnter. Some of this she bot tled, and when on a visit to Boston soon after carried samples to a leading oil merchant, who encouraged her to bring more. The following year the Bartlett family industriously applied their gill nets and seut to market 13 barrels of oil, for which they were paid at the rate of.$ll per barrel. In the following year this family made 100 barrels. Then, tho value of menhaden oil hav ing becomo recognized, many oil presses of a more or less imperfect construc tion were established along the coast. and tho indnstry developed so rapidly that within 30 years the yield of men haden oil exceeded that of tho whale from the American fisheries."

The acmu of perfection iu this lino of requisites is supplied by tho oblong wicker baskets to be found iu Chinese, and Japanese shops. As they come in nests, uuy size desired may be obtained, from the very small ones which will carry only a lunch and a favorite volume to the large but not weighty affairs which will hold all the garments and other essentials for a several days' sojourn. The baskets, snugly fitted together, are held by a sub stantial shawl strap, and this convenient arrangement costs less than $ 2. Any ablebodied -woman, old or young, can easily carry one and still have strength enough left to rise up and call blessed the intelligent jiersou who adapted a foreign article to the use of the inde pendent American woman.
