SMALL BOY GETS NINETY POUND FISH OS A LIGHT RIG Tarpon of Nearly Twice Fisherman's Weight Is landed St. Petersburg, July 17. It wa3 certainly "Cllngen night" at Johns Pasa Thursday night. There were 13 lines in the water, but the three tar pon caught were on a Clinton tamily hook. Carl Murrey, son of Mrs. CJingen, started off the family affair by landing a 90-pound fish. Carl is but 17 years old and a mighty small boy for his age. All his elders had gone fishing taking with them all of the tarpon outfits. So Carl and a friend set out in a row boat, armed with a red-fish ta'ckle. It was Carl's first tarpon. Although boys younger than he have landed tarpon .this season, Carl claims to be the champion of the younger fishermen, because o! his weight (58 pounds), size of fish and the tackle used. After Carl" beached his fish his mother went to the fishing ground in his stead. Within a few minutes af ter arriving, she brought in a 70 pounder with the same red fish hook. To wind up the family's evening activities, Ross "Red" Cllngen caught the third fish. Jesse Sweat had a magnificent fight with a tarpon which "went crazy" as they frequently do when snagged by the hook in some, part of the head other than the mouth. Af ter the strike the fish stayed In the water but very little, Jumping nine times on both sides of the boat with In a few seconds. The fish rollel plunged and ecudded over the surface of the water, until he finally shook the hook. George Roberts was at the pass, the other evening, with a party. He hooked a tarpon and played it for a long time, only to divide the silver king with a shark. George taking the head and the shark the body, which is about the usual division a shark makes with anyone who has a silver king. .

News-Index. "I've lost something very valuable," she sobbed, "and I want you to help me find It." In the final edition of the paper the following appeared: "LOST On Orrington avenue, be- tween Colfax and Simpson, a pair o? teeth.. Finder please return to Mrs. Ada Kechum, Evanston, 111." Early In the evening Mrs. Ketchum answered the telephone. "Think I've found your teeth, lady," etated a man's voice. "What? My teeth! Why, I didn't lose any teeth." "An advertisement In the News Index said you did,." "Heavens, they bawled It np! told them I lost my parakeet my lit tlo parrot! It flew away last week. The receiver banged on both hooks simultaneously. At midnight Mrs. Ketchum hadro ceived her sixty-third call from "some one who had found her teeth." Ex, "For the past ten years I have suf fered severely from constipation, kid ney and liver troubles," writes that well-known and highly respected lady, Mrs. E. L. Taylor, of 916 ft. De- Soto St., Pensacola, Fla, "I often had intense pains In my back and limbs; frequent attacks of rheumatism of the muscles; was ex tremely nervous and some nights I could scarcely sleep at all; had no appetite but simply forced myself to eat, knowing I required nourishment to keep up my strength, but even then my food did not seem to do me much good, and if I were not very careful what I ate I'd have attacks of pain and gas in my stomach after wards. I frequently had dizzy spells which made everything seem twisted. I took about everything suggested, trying to find relief, without success." "Like a drowning man grabbing at straws, I decided to try Dreco on chance of its doing me good. The very first dose helped me, for soothed my stomach, and at the end of the first bottle, it was easy to see the great change in my condiion. The pains in my back and limbs are about gone; nerves are steady now and, talk aboujU sleeping, why the other morning the alarm clock failed to awaken me. My appetite is great, in fact I'm like a different woman, and strongly advise everyone to give Dreco a fair trial, it they are trou bled as I used to be.'' All good druggists now 'sell Dreco and it Is highly recommended In Lakeland by Red Cross Pharmacy. MALE "SKEETERS" DO NOT BITE Mr. Mosquito does not bite; his bill is so blunt that he could not bo ablood-sucker If rife wished. It is Mrs. Mosquito who does all the dead ly work of fever propagation. ' She is most active around dawn and af ter sunset. She avoids strong light and prefers, dark colors. She is es sentially a domestic creature, stay ing around houses by preference, says the Scientific American. In the autumn the males die and the females seek winter Quarters. They hibernate in dark corners of cellar and garret, and on the first warm day of spring are out laying their eggs. Save when extended by the arrival of this hibernating pe riod, the life of the female is one or two months; the male on the other hand, lives but a few days. The food of the mosquito is the juice and nec tar of plants and, of course, blood though not necessarily that of man; animals, reptiles and even catepillars are bitten with the same freedom. The female mosquito lays front fifty to one hundred eggs at a time, on any quiet bit of water. In about three days they hatch and though at first the larva is very small, it grows rapidly and attains full development in a few days. We have then the fa miliar wrigglers of the old-time rain barrell and the uncovered clsterm. During the larval stage, which lasts from seven to fourteen days, the ma larlal variety can be distinguished from all others, by the curiously in clined, by virtue of the fact that It lies with its body parallel to the sur face of the water, while the other species hang with their heads down' ward.
