Origin of the Menhaden Industry.
Mr. Robert F. 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."
Her Wicker Ilantlbag.
Ono of tho iudispeu.sables for summer
travel, especially for busy women vhosa
only vacation consists of flying trips to
seashore or mountain, is a lightweight
valiso or telescope bag. 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.

POMPADOUR JIM EXPLAINS.

mons Ai'tt-r All the Kitw.
H ARTroUii, Conn., Oct. 5. James J.
Corlx-tt said: "I am sick of the pugilistic
business and want to get out of it, but I
intend to retire honorably. I only want
to train oik' more, and I will Is- perfectly
fit that time, so that I feel that I can
safely offer to met within a week all the
men who cover my money."
"Why are you now willing to fight Fitz
simmons when yon only said he must first
defeat Steve O'Donncll!"
"Well, it was this way. I meant what I
said, but Brady went to New York and
metritz. lie saw that Mt.simtnons tmd
estimated his chances of being defeated by
O'Donncll as I icing somewhat, near what
they would lie in case of a light with me,
and of course he would not make so much
capital; so he had determined to hold out
for me, and especially as the Olympic chili
was liacking him up by a declaration that
they would uward him tiie championship
if I did not respond.
"I could not afford to be put in a false
light licfore the public, so I decided to
meet Fitzsimtnons in the way that I have
commltrcd myself to as one of a numlier in
one week. H;is it occurred to you how
unfair it Is to me that tht- Olympic club
should take sides with Kitzsimmons and
how it makes me fivl alHiut lighting in
future under the auspices of that organiza
tion? "There is just one thing that ought to lie
considered by the public just about now. I
have not on any occasion failed to keep my
agreements. I have never crawled, and
that will always lie my record. The scries
of fights must come after the 1st of July,
whun my season closes.
"1 have got a lot of money invested in
this show which I must get return for and
I cannot stop and attend to every fighter
who claims my attention. It is only those
who have a right to challenge me that, I
should notice, lint 1 am going to lie mag
nanimous if they will only wait until my
season closes, when all will get satisfac
tion." Those Temple Cup Games.
