Flfty Kinda of Electric Fishes.
According to the statements of the
English naturalist, Professor Stirling
there are in existence today upward of
fifty Piecies of fishes having more or less
specialized organs, the function of which
is the generation of electric discharges.
JThe lishes differ widely, sometimes
strikingly, from each other, belonging
mostly to different families, and oc
casionally even to different orders of the
"Pisces." In structure they closely re
semble the other species of the genera
to which they severally belong, differ
ing irom iiiem, wnn an occasional ex
ception, mainly in the jiossession of or
gans for electric generation.
Tho well known "electric rays," for
example, of which Nicholson mentions
three and Gnuther six, are the most
prominent. These rays are found in the
Atlantic and Indian oceans and the
Mediterranean sea, and are seen in the
English channel, or even farther north;
while other ejectric fishes are still more
cosinopolitauT'though most of them in
habit limited areas and warm waters.
A I'hraxe That I Not Knglish.
"I will give a prize of $100 to any one
who can prove that the expression 'don't
you know, or, as it is often rendered.
doncherknow, was ever used in Eng
land by a real Englishman," declared a
Ierson of tho British persuasion the other
"The phrase had its origin in Philadel
phia, where it is much in vogue, because
certain dudes there believe it is English.
No Englishman ever says 'Don't you
m ri .
Know, a ne expression ne aoes use is
'Yon know,' such as 'I'm going up to
London, you know, to get me new
trousers, yon know.'
"This may be a startler for certain
young men about town, who by dint of
great practice are able to interject
Moncherknow' at about every ten words
m their conversation. I'm sorry to hurt
their feelings. New lork Herald.

Overtures from the Sponge Trust.
The Sponge Gatherers' association met
at the room over the store of J. P. Rol
erts Monday evening, when President
Alien Curry stated that a proposition
had been received from the sponge trust
through their local representative sug
gesting that the association enter into
an agreement to sell all its sponges to
the trust for a term of years, for which
a fair price would be offered and Ijonds
given and required for the faithful per
formance of the agreement.
Mr. Arapian addressed the meeting at
considerable length, offering several
specious arguments in favor of his
propositions, declaring himself in favor
of the Sponge Gatherers' association and
stating that if he should withdraw from
the trust the same would be very badly
crippled and would be compelled to dis
solve at once.
Mr. John Lowe, Jr., who had almost
been persuaded to withdraw from the
association, now declared his intention
of supporting it more strongly and ap
proved of its actions.
The meeting was also addressed by
Messrs. W hitmore, Pinder, Watkins and
B. W. Kemp, who made some telling re
marks. Every one interested in sponge
gathering was urged to join the union.

Mr. II. K. Williams may be compli
mented upon the economy he exercised
in seeking re-election to the Middlesex
county council, his expenses being set
down at twopence. This fairly beats
the "record." Mr. .Deputy Bedford's
election expenses were said to be but

Nearly Z.500 Immigrants on One Ship.
There came to Baltimore recently the
largest number of immigrants ever
landed from one 6hip in any port of
America from a foreign land. When
the steamer Oldenburg, Captain Gathe
man, from Bremen, was made fast at
Baltimore and Ohio pier 9, Locust
Point, 2,493 men, women and children
came over the gangplank into their
adopted country. They were a hardy,
respectable looking throng. Schumacher
& Co., agents of the ship, paid $1,246.50
to tho custom service as the per capita
tax upon the immigrants. There were
not over 200 among the immigrants who
had not been born iu Germany. About
100 were Russians, and a few were
The nearest approach to the number
brought by tho Oldenburg was 2,-130
immigrants lauded here in April, 1831,
by the ehnar. Baltimore Sun.
One AVay of Stopping a Runaway.
J. southern caiiiornia vaquero per
formed a remarkable feat in San Fran
cisco recently. While riding his mus
tang he suddenly came upon a runaway
team. The vaquero rode close to the
animals and, bending over until he al
most touched the ground, caught the
reins, which were trailing. There was
a sudden evolution of man and beast,
and the brave mustang stopped as though
shot. Its hind legs were doubled under
its body, its forelegs were extended and
Jose sat erect with the reins of the
team wound tightly around the horns of
his saddle. As the reins drew taut there
was a prodigious jerk, a tearing of the
pavement under the broncho's stubborn
feet, a snapping of harness, and the bi
horses, checked in their impetuous rush,
were thrown to the ground and cap
