Collis tells what he knows about planking a shad as be. low: Take a well-charred oak plank, two inches thick and from eighteen inches to two feet square. Heat the plank thoroughly before the fire. Take a fe male shad, scaled and cleaned, and split it up the front, and not along the back bone, as is usual, and nail it, back down ward, to the hot plank with galvanized iron nails. Place it before the fire at a slight angle, say 30 degrees, and baste with the very best butter. Cook until well done, and serve it on the plank, having a couple of blocks on the table to rest the hot plank on. It needs no other sauce than a mint julep. The row should be fried and served with the shad, or as a side dish, with a thick sauce of cream butter and horseradish. When a man mistakes his thoughts for persons and thing, he is mad.

STRANGE AND CURIOUS NOTES OF TU1NUS TAK1NU PLAtB ABOUT US, The Trumpet- Poor Man' tiolch Cfalca- oed A Maine Oddity To the Prison Door A Female Peddler, Etc., Etc. At a special session of the Criminal Court of Missouri, John A. Wheeler was sentenced to two years in the pen itentiary for the seduction of Ida W. Wheeler under promise of nfarriage. The trial was had three weeks ago, but a motion for a new trial was overruled and sentence at last passed. An en deavor will be made to carry the case to the Supreme Court. The standing of the parties in the suit, who live in Kansas City, has made it one of note. The woman seems determined to pursue her betrayer to the utmost. She has a judgment in the Circuit Court and a lien on the estate of his father for $20,000, and besides has gotten him to the door of the penitentiary. He offered her a large amount to marry him after the verdict was rendered, but she would not accept Wheeler is of a prominent family of Cass county, and besides the dishonor of a penitentiary sentence he onoe wealthy and a merchant of Kansas City will now be poverty-stricken. The term "Chicagoed," as applied to a contest in which one or the other of base ball teams plays nine innings with out making a run, came into existence shortly after the famous tour of the Cincinnati Bed Stockings, in 18C9. At that time there was a great spirit of rivalry between Cincinnati and Chioago, and the Windy City was jealous of the base ball laurels of the Queen City, and determined, if possible, to rob it of them. They organized for the purpose the strongest professional team that they could rake and scrape together, and announced that they had a world beater. Almost the first team that the Windy City crew tackled was the famous Mutual Club of New York. The Goth amites shut them out nine successive innings, and, as it was the first time such a feat had been accomplished, it was at once dubbed by all the papers ss "Chicagoed," and by this term all such contests have sinoe been known. Edmund Dobb was an oddity who lived in the suburbs of Hallowell, Me., half a century ago. On the 14th day of February he jogged into town on his horse sled and was arrested for violating a city ordinance requiring all sleighs and sleds to have bells attached. Dorr was arraigned before a Justice of the Peace and fined. He paid his fine, but swore he would have revenge. And on every 14th day of February for twelve years Dorr made an annual visit to Hallowell. seated in an ancient cutter and driving a ringboned mare, to whose harness 200 jangling bells of all sizes and degrees of discord were fastened. There were sleigh bells and cow bells and dinner bells and all sorts of bells on the rigging, as if he had been a full brass band. He repeated this perform ance annually till he died, and took a grim satisfaction in thus squaring his account with the city that had fined him. In a recent interview Dan O'Leary said: "Of all the trampers living the only one that is wealthy is Bowell, and he is probably worth $80,000. He han dles it very carefully and never spec ulates.

A pension which had been regularly oaid for 502 years has just come to au end in Switzerland, and the Cantonal government of Soleure, the paymasters, no much recrret its extinction that thev are advertising for au heir. In 1382 Count Kndolph, of Kibonrg-, inarched to tho assault or the town of Soleure, against which his ancestors had long entertained treasonable designs. But one Hans Both, a peasant living in a neighboring village, was on the alert and carried to the towns-people intel licence of what was brewing, and Soleure was saved. For this very sub stantial service Hans was rewarded with an annuity to himself and his heirs for ever.

A xouNO man by the name of Craw ford, living in Texas, took it into his head that he would make a good snake charmer. He came across a huge rattle snake, about three feet long, and imme diately began his manipulations and conjurations with a view of making him a captive and reducing him to docility. He got hold of the snake by some means and says he was playing with aud caressing him, having him firmly grasped around the body a few inches from the neck, when suddenly writhing and twisting around the snake bit huu severely on the hand. By close and skillful attention his physicians saved his life, but his survival was almost a marvel, as the doctors at one time almost despaired of rallying him. In the Clinical Record Dr. Holland relates that one of his lady patients once called on a "psjehomotrio healer" who greatly impressed her by his prescience in telling her that she suffered from oc casional headache and pain in the side due to the fact that her liver was bound back to her diaphragm. The lady thought that only a man of diabolical insight could have discovered her symp toms without an examination, and she hastened nervously to her phvsiciau. There she was informed that almost every women patient a doctor has is a sufferer from headache and sideache, and that she would be in a bad way in deed if her liver were not anchored in the manner stated by the charlatan. "Poob Man's GuLOH,"on Battle Creek, in California, got its name in this man ner: A miner named Noah Helm toiled season after season in the gulch, but grew poorer every year, and bis neigh bors often advised him to pull up stakes and leave. He had confidence in the claim, however, and said he proposed to starve there or make a strike. Ono day Helm struck a bonanza in the claim. moved down into the valley and pur chased a ranch, built an elegant man sion, brought his family from the East, and is now one of the most prosperous farmers in the country. Although the spot finally turned out well, it has al ways borne the title of "Poor Man's Uulch," given by the miners. A lively air on a violin will some times set a whole flock of geese wild with delight. On one occasion at a country wedding I was a witness of a ourious performance by one of these an imals. After dinner a lady entertained her guests assembled on a lawn with music from an aooordion. A flock of geese were feeding in the road just be low the house and with outstretched necks answered back with notes of sat isfaction. Boon a white gander began dancing a lively jig, keeping good time to the music. For several minutes he kept up the performance to the great delight of the company. The experi ment was tried several times for a week or more and the tones of the accordion never failed to set the old gander into a lively dance. A touno man may be too ingenione for his own good, as, for example, the fellow in a Western city, whose duty it was to lead the extra street car horse back from the top of the hill, ready to assist the next car. He trained the an imal to return on his own accord and place himself in position for tho next trip, and bjw his services have been dis pensed with. The elaborate "icing" used on cards where a lrosted service is desired is said by the Midland Medical Miscellany to consist of powdered glas.

Her stock in trade is a trunk filled with knickknaoks and Yankee no tions of various descriptions, which she barters for paper rags as a rule, although other articles are received when a favor able trade can be made. Recently she drove home with a hen among the pro ceeds of her day's work. She almost invariably sec urea a good-sized load of paper rags, which are disposed of at a paying advance on the purchasing price. The perfidy of man is fairly illustrated in the conduct of a gentleman of White water, Wis. When pretty Nellie Horan was arrested for the murder of her father, mother and sister, the gentleman espoused her cause and was a regular fsaller at the jail during her imprison ment. His conduct was commented on as being so noble at the time; but when Nelllie was acquitted he lost interest in her somehow, and now she sues him for breach of promise. In a communication to the Academic des Sciences, M. Duolaux states that the presence of micro-organisms in the earth is essential to the germination of seed. His experiments were made with plants whose seed grow on the surface as well as those which develop in the ground. The agricultural importance of his researches lies in the faot that farmers who understand this principal will avoid the use on planted soils of any substances inimical to the lower forms of organio life.

THE BOYS ONCE MORE. WHAT SHALL WK DO WITH TE1EM, AND HOW SHALL. WK DO IT. Advice Given to a Father with Six Chil dren About the Best Way to Provide lor Them. From the Christian Union. "I have a little family of six children three girls and three boys. My eldest boy, of twenty-five years, is finely situ ated in New York; the next, eighteen years, is in his second year in college; the third, sixteen years old, is at home a beautiful home with mother and three younger daughters. Q was restless in school, and, in spite of our best endeavors, left two years ago, and has been with me in business. But he is very restless, and longs for farm life, and has been urging me for permission to go West into cattle ranch business. He is a model of health and strength, very fond of home, a great reader of good books, without a bad habit or thought. We shrink from parting with him so early in life. Indeed, it wonld be a loss we cannot bear, to have our youngest son leave us to go into the rough world. It occurs to me that many others may have similar trials, and that you would say something that would help us out. We feel that nothing could compensate him for leaving such a happy home so early. We have urged him to select any branch of study, and we will deny ourselves to serve him. But he is not content, and actually suf fers in his own estimation to get away into outdoor life. Beepeotfully yours, "Fathbb." Blessed Is the boy who has a bent; who knows what he wants to be and do. Most boys have not. A great many men have not. They spend their life in try ing to and out what they are htted for, and lau for want of the discovery. Th average ooy goes througmchool ana college (if he goes to college) with no idea of what he is going to make of him self. He knows as little on graduation day as on the day he entered. Now, however, he can wait no longer; he must do something. He tosses up. His dice are labeled law, medicine, ministry, journalism, business, blank. He throws for a choice. He goes into the ministry because this gives him three more years of agreeable student life at little or no expense; or law because law is a high way into a variety of professions; or journalism because he enjoys seeing ihe fruit of his pen in print; or business be cause he wants to be well off, and he does not know that over ninety per cent, of business men fail; or he goes home to live, or teaches for a living for a year or two, because he cannot make up his mind what to do or be. Perhaps he chooses his father's profession, be cause it is his father's; more probably he repudiates it, for the same reason; perhaps a stronger classmate awakens a short-lived enthusiasm for some calling, to be followed by a lifelong regret that he did not take some other; perhaps he just stumbles in at the nearest open door, merely because it is open. Blessed, therefore, I say, is the boy who has a bent; who knows what he wants to be and do. By all means encourage him in it And, in some sense, specially blessed is he whose bent is toward agriculture. It is, of all callings, if rightly pursued, the healthiest morally and physically. It is free from the maddening craze of the great cities; from the vainglory and 8' rife of law and cognate professions; from the making haste to be rich; from the burdens of servitude on the one hand, and the temptations of de spotio power on the other. It can never be crowded. There are too many lawyers, too many doctors, and, I verily believe, too many ministers, though by splitting our churches up into little sects we manage to find a place and work for them alL But there are two professions which for years to come will not be full in this country: one, that of the farmer; the other, that of the civil engineer. The man whose ambition leads him in either direction leads him into an open field, with plenty to do,- and only a healthy and rational competition. By all means be grateful that your boy has a bent, and a bent that takes him away from the overcrowded kidftloved pro fessions into one of healthy, natural, productive industry. And your present happiness is not to count for a moment iu the balance against his welfare; nor in determining what his welfare is. The bird cannot be kept in the nest after he is fledged. It must fly and make its own nest. If, then, G. were my boy, I should say something like this to him: "You want to be a farmer. Good ! I am glad of it. I want you to be a farmer; but I want you to be a successful farmer; a master of your art. And to-day agri culture is at once a soience and an art. The true farmer is not a clodhopper. Farming is one of the learned profes sions. It requires an encyclopedic mind, it demands a preparation as broad and as thorough as does law, medicine, or the ministry. The farmer converts the inutile mineral deposits of the soil into fruit and grain for men's livelihood. He must know the consti tution of soils, their adaptations, their proper treatment; ha must be a chemist. He must understand the nature and functions of animal life, the conditions of health and disease, and especially of reproduction; he must be a biologist and a physiologist. He must compre hend the world's markets, for he is a merchant as well as a manufacturer. He must be able to measure intelligent ly the relations of the prospective war in Europe to Amerioan breadstuff", the bearing of a silver currency, of a high tariff, of laissee faire on the labor market, on the prioe of the products he has to sell; he must be a political economist. "Let us see what is the wisest and best possible education you can acquire to make you the wisest and best possible farmer ; and let us get as near it as we can. Decide. Do you want to be a plowman or au agriculturist, a drover or a stock-raiser ? If the best thing is a year at an agricultural college, you shall have that ; if a year on a model farm is oetter, we will try for that ; if a year on i oattle ranch is best, vou shall have that. Your ambition for a farmer's life is a pure, good, healthy ambition. But let us look the ground over, make no mistake, and make sure that you enter on this lire in the way to insure a life -tuooess." In short, 1 should sympa- hize with him in his desire, encourage bim in bis ambition, and guide him in the fulfillment of his purpose. There is danger, of oourse; danprer when a boy goes away from home : danger that he will blunder, stumble into temptation, fall into ain. The period from fourteen to twenty-one is always a period of danger, when the powers are clamoring for exercise, and the judgment is not yet mature to guide them, nor the will strong to control them. But there is no danger so great is that of repression. That is certain to featroy the life. Healthv powers are always to be trained, never prohibited. mature maxes no blunders : though we iometimes blunder in interpreting her. xour Doy s want, proved by its persist- ence not to be a mere boyish freak, is uature's voioe telliug you his need. Give him gnidanoe, not repression"; help, not hindrance. Do not try to pre vent his being a farmer, nor let him go to find his own blundering way into a 'arm life, bnt counsel with him, that vou may help him to make himself the best possible farmer that bus nature and four means allow. Lert Nothing but the Man. An Onondaga oountv man li vertised in his town paper that his wife had left his bed and board, the woman has addressed a letter to the editor in whioh she pointedly remarks- t seems to me that he has less expense, for I was refused credit on his account while I lived with him and as regards his bod, he never had any I had to work for my board the greater part of the time after I married him I have not left anything but the man, 'and I have no regret for him."

CURIOUS fcHABTOUM. Staple Industries, Unstable fflarrlasro and Queer Superstitions. One of the staple Industries of Khar toum nnd its neighborhood was that of boat building, the vessels constructed be ing for the most part long, open boats for the navagation of the Nile usually built of palm-wood, but deprecated by Mr. Melly as very clumsy contrivances. The principal portion of the trade of the inhabitants consisted, however, in the the bounteous produce of their gardens and their fields. The bazaars consist of four covered and four uncovered streets; the former rejoicing in the finest shops, filled with articles of mer chandise of various charaoter, among whioh figured Manchester prints, Shef field knives and scissors on cards, and Staffordshire pottery ware. The un covered streets were mostly booths, in which were sold senna, lichens, and va rious herbs and grasses. The merchants of the place exported gum arable, galls, senna, castor oil, and large quantities of ivory on Camels to Kerosko, after conveying them down the Nile to Berber. The lower class of people contented themselves with one wife each, who usually rewarded her faithful spouse with many children. The higher class were not so easily satisfied, and the grandees indulged in the permitted number of four. "The most unpleasant part of the year is the rainy season, and so heavy is the fall that the streets are impassa ble, This comes on, too, so suddenly that should any one call upon another a little before the commencement of the showers, he must remain at his friend's house for three or four days until the waters subside. No one attempts to quit his dwelling during the rains, and the town therefore must possess much aMpearance of only just having TSJvitTrom" th??7elnge. "Superstitious practices and preju dices are general All Wednesdays are considered unfortunate, particularly the last Wednesday in the month; but the last Wednesday in the year is still more unfortunate, as on that day Moses made the waters blood. So the day previously, every one provides water for two day's, as no one thinks of going to the river till after 'Asser' three o'clock in the afternoon. The Pacha is not free from these superstitions, and Biffa Bey, who has enjoyed the advantages of a Persian as well as a Parisian education and is thoroughly versed in magical lore, has daily to explain His excellency's dreams." London Society. Webster's Carelessness of Money. On another occasion Mr. Webster had invited some friends to dinner. As he left home in the morning he requested his wife to send John down to the office about ten o'olock to go to market with him. John came down accordingly. Mr. Webster was busy writing. He asked John if he had any money. John replied in the negative. "Then," said Mr. Webster, "go down to Mr. Burritt and ask him to lend me $5." (Burritt was a stationer in the lower story.) John came back and stated that Mr. Burritt had hot $5, but sent him $10, which Webster took and put in his waistcoat pocket. Pretty soon a poor woman came in on an alms-asking errand. Said Webster, still writing : "I know all about it ; you've lost your husband, and have five small chil dren and nothing to eat. Take this I" and be gave her the ten-dollar note which John had borrowed from Mr. Burritt. By and by he finished his work and remarked to his servant: "Now, John, we'll go to market." Down they went through Court and Washington streets and Dock square to the Quinoy Market, before Faneuil Hall Mr. Webster bought of the butchers at the south end of the market what suited him, but made no pay ments, as he had accounts with them. At last they reached a vegetable dealer, of whom Webster also made a purchase and was about to pass on as before when the faithful John arrested him with the remark: "Mr. Webster, this man is a stranger to us. We never had dealings with liim." "True," said the great lawyer, "very true ;" and put his hand in his pocket for the money to pay the amount Find ing none, he said to his servant: "John, I thought yoa gave me some money just now?" "So I did, sir," said John, "but you gave it to that poor woman who came into the office." "Ah 1" said Webster, "so I did, but I had forgotten all about it. Well, John, you must borrow some more money and come down aud pay these people ; and now we will go home." Boston Budget A Beleaguered Fortress. French and Spanish troops, 40,000 in number, for four long years, from June, 1779, till February, 1783, beleaguered the fortress of Gibraltar, then held by Gen. Eliot, with a garrison of 7,000 men. The enemy erected batteries right aoross the sandy isthmus, while in the bay they had 47 ships of the line and iu -paltering snips," besides count less lesser craft. One night the Bock narrowiy escaped oeing taken by sur prise. A goatherd having undertaken to guide the Spaniards by a path then unknown to the Euglish, 500 troops fol lowed him one dark night, and crept silently to a hollow called the Siletta, or little chair, and thence to the signal station, where they slew the guard. There they awaited reinforcements from below; these, however, were delayed, and the garrison in the meantime were aroused, and, sallying forth, drove back the invaders. The Siletta was immedi ately filled up and the path utterly de stroyed and made inaccessible, and the siege wore on through weary months. At last a furious general attack was met by an incessant fire of red-hot balls on the enemy's fleet 5,000 were thrown in one day till at length the battering ships took fire, as, owing to the thickness of their timbers, the red-hot balls sank deep into the wood and could not be dislodged. The scene that ensued in the darkness of that terrible night must have been awful indeed; and so fearful were the groans and shrieks of the wounded and dying that brave English men forgot to let their foes perish in the flames and ventured to their rescue, the marine brigade being foremost in this work of mercy, whioh added fresh laurels to thenuyjatory. It was said that in this engagement the Spaniards lost 3,000 men, while the garrison had only 16 killed, and the damage done to the fortress was repaired iu a few hours. A few days later a formidable English fleet came to the relief of the town, the siege was raised, and Britain once more left in undisputed "possession of the stronghold An Old Joke m a New Shape. A correspondent of the Washington Chronicle positively asserts that a min strel troupe has aotually invented a new joke. It is hard to acoept so wildly im probable an assertion, but the story, though we feel quite sure we heard it years ago in a little different shape, is funny enough to bear repetition: It seems that a gentleman named Balcom, from Boston, every now and then runs down to. New York to look after the eastern end of his stock in terests, aad one time when he was there he went to Thatcher, Primrose & West's minstrels. There were a number of his New York and Chicago friends in the audienoe, and one of them, W. C. D. Orarjisey, had put up a game on him. The burnt-cork gentlemen were singing "Yankee Doodle Came to Town," when suddenly the music was interrupted by the entrance of a messenger-boy on the stage with a telegram. He handed it to Thatcher amid an intense hush. Thatcher glanced at the address, and, advancing to the foot-lights, inquired: "Is Mr. Uri Balcom in the audienoe ?" Balcom jumped to his feet, and wav ing his hand to attract attention, ex claimed: "Y&i, sir, that's my name. Here I am." The end man quietly put the telegram in his pocket, and the minstrels struck up their tune just where they had left off: "TJri Baloom's come to town, etc." It is needless to say that something seemed to presently suggest to Balcom that be had been loiO. , LANCE AGAINST SAB1.E, TKlAfc OF skil.t. THAT 8 bTOFPKD BY AN ACCIOBNT. The Unusual and Ferhaps Deadly Com bat brtween Boss and Jennings, .Mounted. From tha San Francisco Chronlole. The announcement of a trial of skill of lance and sabre between Captain E. N. Jennings, formerly of her Britanhio Majesty's service, and Duncan 0. Boss, the well-known athlete, attracted a large 6rowd to Central Park. The arrange ment was that both should be mounted, Jennings to use a lance and Boss to swing the sabre. Twenty one points constituted the match, and the winner of the first eleven was to be declared the successful competitor. At a little be fore 4 o'clock both men appeared, clad in the regulation armor. This consists of a steel cuirass, buckled on both sides, and protecting the back and breast down to the top of the hips. A neck plate of cast steel fits closely around the neck, coming down under the ouirass, and so protecting the upper part of the chest, neck, and shoulders with a double thickness. Over the head is fixed the regulation sword mask, made of strong iron wire, and padded inside with a two inch thickness of hair and chamois skin. This mask covers the whole of tha head and front part of the heck, leaving only the nape exposed. Oapt Jennings, attired in white duck knee-breeches and the armor, first gal loped into the open and took up his station at the point designated by a small Amerioan flag attached to a stick Btuok in the ground. He carried a bam boo pole nine feet in length, whioh was topped by a dull spear head, A small boy, proud of his position as lance holder, kept two similar weapons in re serve, in case of accidents. All three lances were adorned with a diminutive flag. Duncan C. Boss was not many seconds behind Jennings, oarrying a regulation cavalry sabre, the point "up set" and beaten together, making a thickness of over a quarter of au inch. A sabre is technically divided into three equal portions the feeble, or point, the centre, and the forte, or strong, lying next to the handle. The forte and centre were blunted, while the feeble or point was left sufficiently sharp to cut the lance pole. Jennings rode a bay horse, while Boss bestrode a gray. The animals were evidently well trained, and there is no doubt that a very interesting contest would have taken place if a most unfortunate accident had not occurred. J. W. Fraser was selected as referee, and Major W. H. Cross of the Second Life Guards and Major W. O. Dorrance of the Ninety-third Highlanders were judges. The words "Beady," "For ward," "Attack," were the signals for the fray. The horses leaped, forward and the riders came toward each other. Jennings, with his lanoe, struck Boss as he was swinging his horse around, and the first point was awarded to him. The second and third points were won by Boss, and the fourth and fifth by Jennings. Boes did not win the sixth, and there was no decision made. Jennings struck Boss full on the helmet as the latter dashed past, but Boss turned suddenly and slashed at Jennings with his sabre. Jennings' helmet was knocked from his head, and he narrowly escaped a fall from his saddle. Then there was a shout, and at the end of forty yards blood could be seen running down Jen nings' neck. He dismounted, however, without assistance, and when he hurried toward the dressing room the crowd broke through the ropes and surrounded him, so that it was with difficulty that he reached the inner rooms. Then he nearly fainted. A physician was hastily summoned, and, after an examination, he stated that Jennings' skull had been fractured. The wound was over the right ear, nearly four inches in length, and presented a very ugly appearance. A carriage was obtained, and Captain Jennings was driven to his room at 311 Dupont street, where everything was done to alleviate his sufferings. Dr. Julius Bosenstirn attended the wounded man about 5 o'clock, and an hour later Boss and a friend appeared to make inquiries. Dr. liusexisUru said there was no doubt the skull was frao tured, while the gash required eleven stitches to close it. He added that while the wound was not necessarily fatal, should erysipelas set in nothing could save the Captain's life. Jennings was apparently sensible, but the band aees did not permit him to speak, al though he waved his hand to Boss when that athlete entered the room. Later in the eveniug Boss was asked by a Chronicle reporter if he could ox plain how the unfortunate circumstance occurred and he said: "After the Captain made his last point on me, he bent his head forward and the under edge of his mask oame in con tact with the upper edge of his cuirass. The result was the mask was tilted off. I was in the act of delivering 'cut two at cavalry' at that instant. The sword was iu the air when I saw the mask fall. Of course I did ail I could to ease the force of the cut, but it was bound to reach home, and had I not stayed the sabre there is nothing that would have prevented the Captain's head from roll ing to the ground." Dr. Bosenstirn, who attended Captain Jennings, said that Jennings' skull was fractured. It is feared that he has small chances of recovery. Such a Nice Name. Upon one occasion when Artemus Ward was in London, a children's party was arranged by the great humorist, and to which one of the sons of John Bright was invited. The boy returned home aglow with delight. "Weil," said the English statesman to his son, "did you enjoy yourself, my boy ?" "Oh, indeed, I did," exclaimed the little Bright, "and Mr. Ward gave me such a nice name for you, papa." "What was that ?" in quired the father. "Why, he asked me how that gay and festive ouss, the gov ernor, was 1" replied the child. More than three million Germans have emigrated to this country during the last sixty years.

"There is no question that the Alaska Commercial Company, by its lease of the seal islands of that country, enjoy one of the most Valuable franchises that could possibly be secured," said an extensive importer of sealskins in New York, "and it is to be regretted that the Government granted the privilege it did for so insig nificant a return. At the same time, no matter what may be said on the eoore, the monopoly thus vouchsafed has been a wise thing, inasmuch as it prevents the general warfare on the seals of these islands which has caused the virtual ex tinction of the fur seal from every other fishery in the world. TJnder the pro visions bl the Company's lease of the Alaska islands only a limited cumber of seals may be killed annually lUU.UUU 1 believe and the natural increase of the animals is many times that. For these skins the Government receives bnt $2 each, while they will net the company about $2,500,000. If the Government employees having supervision of the operations of the Alaska Company are not corrupt there can be no greater number of seals taken. I have an idea, however, that there are magnificent op portunities for enterprising officials iu this work of supervision. "The Fribyloff group of islands, orer which the Alaska Company has supreme control, are 800 miles from Sitka, and are simply small rocky protrusions from the sea, The only life one sees there is in the seal-killing season, which begins early in J una and continues all summer, the skin of the seal being in its best condition during these months. The seals taken on the desolate shores of these distant islands furnish the finest quality of seal fur now to be obtained. The Antarctio islands of Georgia and Desolation formerly contained a still finer-clad seal, its value being twioe that of the Alaska seal, bnt as they were free hunting grounds the animals long Bince became so scarce that it did not pay to send vessels to their haunts after them. The last time that a seal-hunting party was sent to those remote waters less than 100 were taken, while the time is still within the memory of seal hunters who are not yet old when a catch of 2,000,000 a year on these islands was not an uncommon thing. The north west coast of Alaska as far as Oonalaska is a free seal-hunting ground, but the skins are far inferior to the pelts taken in the Pribylofl rockeries, as the fisher men call the seal haunts. "It is not a pleasant sight, the slaughtering of seals, nor is there any thing in it requiring heroism or the ex ercise of skill that will awaken the lively emotions of a sportsman. The sealing vessels begin to arrive at the islands early in J une, and it is a fact that in the heavy fogs that prevail in that latitude in summer the sailors depend on the hoarse cries of the seals that are gathered on the rocky shores to guide them to the hunting grounds. Prom the time the seals begin to congregate at the breed ing places until August there is constant, and often deadly warfare waged between the pugnacious heads of sleek-skinned harems, and the bellowings of these jealous seals may be heard far out to sea above the roar of the surf. Not less than 8,000,000 seals congregate on these isolated rocks, and the chorus of voices it is possible for them to raise may be imagined. To see the seals literally packed on these islands is a sight never to be forgotten. The whole surface of the rocks seems to be a wriggling, writh ing, contorting mass. "A three-year-old seal has the choicest fur. Nothing younger than a two-year-old nor older than a four-year-old is killed. The hunters start out before dawn, while the seals are asleep along the shores. Taking positions between them and the sea they cut off their es cape. Then tae surprised animals are driven inland. a drovers might drive flock of sheep. They are permitted to take their own time, and when they reach the killing ground the hunters go around and knock each one, or the ones mat are) imumtauia, uu mo ficujfiiu a heavy club. The skins are removed from the carcases at once and taken to the salting houses where they are covered with Bait and piled up. They remain in cure for three or four weeks, when they are counted by the Govern ruent agent and taken to San Franoisco, where the United States Collector re counts them and colleots the tax. At San Francisoo they are packed in tight bands and sent direot to London for the dressing 'which no one in this country has yet learned to give them. The Alaska seal fishery has added not less than $20,000,000 a year to the trade of the world by the time the completed garments adorn the forms of those who are so fortunate as to be able to possess them."
