Mr. James Wright, second vice presi
dent of the Initial! line, Hays that when
the end of 192 conies at least 100,000
people will have K-tt for Europe from
all porta of this country during the
year. Half of them will sail during the
fifteen weeks of the season, from April
to Angu.-t. Sum.' travelers will carry
UuTid.eilri of doll. ;.rs ia their pocketbooks
to rpend where others carry thousands.
Nine-tenths of those hundreds ami thou
sands will 1 transferred to foreign own
em lx-f ore the tourists return.
Even the money spent for p.ussage and
during the voya -s must be counted in
that winch bids go. nlby to tins land or
liiK-rty, for the great Nteauiship compa
nies are, with -one exception, foreign
coijk. rat ions. Including tips and fees
these corporations will take an average
of :! from each passenger for the
round trip. The majority willwiy less,
hut there will lie enough rich men who
who pay a good deal more to bring the
mean amount up to that ligure.
The money which each tourist carries
with him is harder to estimate. A for
eign exchange clerk said that the letters
of eivdit issued by them to European
travelers average about C0O. or $3,000
each; but this is above the ordinary fig
( lire, and of course this in many cases
covers a party of four or five. Eight
hundred dollars is estimated as the aver
age amount taken by each passenger in
the cabin. This makes the total average
expenditure of the average European
traveler $900. When this is multiplied
by the estimated total of these travelers
the result is astounding.
It is $JW5,000,Ot)0.
Ninety-six millions of dollars carried
from America to Europe iu a single year
by travelers alone! If this were saved
for a few years Uncle Sam might buy a
good slice of Europe and bring it over
here for exhibition purposes. New
The Lenten offerings of the Snnday
school children of the Protestant Epiaeo
pal chnrch thronghout the United States
Urns far received in behalf of the gener
al board of missions are largely in excess
of those for the same period in 1891. In
the two weeks immediately succeeding
Easter 1,137 Sunday schools sent in $0,
699, and it is believed a total of 100,000
will have been received when all of the
4,000 schools in the country shall have
been heard from. This is double the
sum donated last year.
The Lenten Sunday school offering is
a feature of the work of the board uf
missions. Just before Lent this year the
board sent a package of folding paste
board savings bunks to each Sunday
school superintendent for distribution
among his pupils for the reception of the
children's savings during the fasting sea
son. No sooner had Easter passed than the
little banks began to arrive at the offices
of the board in the Bible House.
The twenty-five young women in Bish
op Leonard's school in Reno, Nev., sent
$250. One school sent in 5,000 pennies
and another 10,000 pennies.
It will be July before all the returns
will have been received. New York
Rothley Temple, Lord Macaula5T's
birthplace, is for sale by public auction.
It is an old manor house, some six miles
from Leicester, and there the historian
was born at the end of the year 1800. It
cannot be said that Rothley Temple de
rived more than nominal luster from
the association, for Macaulay left Leices
tershire before he had left infancy,
and Birchin Lfine, in the city, was the
home of his earliest childhood. Instead
of a manorial park he had Drapers' gar
dens for a playground, until he went to
live in the old High street at Clapham.
The Leicestershire manor, however,
has many historical interests besides this
one, and a Thirteenth century chapel of
the Knights Templars is attached to the
estate. It is a wealthy manor, too, for
000 acres produce 2,000 of annual reiit: j
and, moreover, it is at the headquarters
of the famous Qnorn Hunt, and in the
heart of some famous scenery. London
Cost of an Epidemic
Dr. Thresh, the medical officer for the
county of Essex, having obtained full
returns of the late epidemic of influenza,
estimates tliat no less than 540 persons
died under the immediate attack, and
that no fewer than 1,400 deaths occurred
in the county from its direct or indirect
influence. The monetary loss for the '
two months during which the epidemic
prevailed he states at no less than 50.
000, on the basis of the loss of wages of
adults calculated at twelve shillings a
week. He adds: "I am, however, afraid
that had the county suffered rrom an
epidemic among cattle, causing in the
time the same number of deaths and in
dicating the same pecuniary loss, the
alarm produced would have been greater
and more permanent." British Medical

Pitching his voice high the lookout at
he masthead of tho menhaden eteaim-r
hhouts out gleefully: "A sclio!! A
school!" and immediately all is bustle
and excitement on board.
"As this is a new experience to you.
sir, von Khali have a seat with ine in my
'Thank you, captain; I am only txj
eager to see the fun."
The crews now take their places in the
seine boats, while two of the party,
known as drivers, go out in advance in
little thirteen foot boats to learn the
direction iu which tho school is moving,
and to mark out its size. Tho jolly cap
tain a true type of the traditional Cape
Codder, square built, sturdy, genial, his
face bronzed by years of exposure to
sunshine and sea breezes and very intel
ligent withai takes his place at the in
side Imav oar in one of the seine boats,
and the male a corresponding position in
tho other, and by the time they reach
the school the drivers describe the move
ments of the fish.
They now begin throwing out the
neiiie, each boat going in an opposite di
rection around the school, the drivers iu
the meantime splashing the water to
keep the fish from escaping. Soon the
boats meet, and all hands now pull at
the purse line, the net and cork line.
The steamer is brought alongside, and
after the fish are driven well together
the net is fastened to the steamer's side
and they are baled into the hold by
means of a large dip net run by a don
The next thing on the programme is
to prepare the menhaden for salting, to
be used as bait for which there is great
demand. This is a simple process, but
to me its novelty invests it with partic
ular interest. The head of the fish is
taken in the left hand of the workman,
and with a peculiarly shaped knife held
in the right hand he" cuts a slice, longi
tudinally, from each side of the Inxly,
leaving the head and vertebne to be
thrown away or occasionally to be
pressed for oil. The slivers are salted
and packed in barrels.
This opening act of the day's drama
ended. Captain Williams invites me t.
accompany him into the cabin, and tht
jolly skipper there entertains me with
some interesting points about the fishery.
"It's queer how many different names
the menhaden is known by," observe
the skipper. "Fact is, it has more ali
ases than a veteran criminal more nick
names than there were colors to Joseph's
coat. Besides the more common name
of menhaden it is known as pogy, bony
fish, mossbunker. hardhead, whitefish,
bunker, oldwife, bugfish, cheboy, ell
wife, alewife, fatback, greentail, wife
and yellowtail shad. It's about as long
as the common sea herring, but is deep
er and more robust looking. Its aver
age length is from twelve to fifteen
inches. 1 hardly need tell you that it is
valuable as a bait fish, it excelling all
others as such; that as a food resource
it is thought to have great qualtities;
that its chief value is as a fetilizer and
and that it is also valuable for the oil
.and scrap produced by cooking and
"For illustration, here are some min
utes I made in my memorandum book
in regard to what was done in the year
1880. which was a fair representative sea
son. That year the total weight of the
catch was 576,000 pounds equivalent to
about 700,000,000 menhaden in number.
Pretty big army, eh? Quantity of oil pro
duced, 2,0tiG.oU3 gallons, and of guano
G8,y)4 tons, having a total value of
:j&,034.Gl. Capital invested in steamers,
etc., and their outfit and in factories
,362,841. As compared with previous
vears, however, the yield of oil was
"About how long, captain, does the
catching season last?"
"Well, you see. as soon as the men
haden make their appearance in the
spring, vessels start in pursuit of 'em
and continue capturing 'em till they dis
appear in the fall. From the menhaden
oil and guano factories along the south
ern coast of New England, New York
and New Jersey shores, the fleets of
steam and sail vessels begin their cruises
early in May, chasing the fish along tli
shores and in the sounds, wherever they
can be found. The vessels seldom cruise
more'n ten or fifteen miles from land.
The total area of the ground is estimated
at 5,350 square geographical miles.
"The average steamer is about the size
of this one. That is to say, some 70 tons
measurement, 90 feet long, 17 feet beam,
7 feet depth of hold and seven feet
draft aft and costs 10,000. It costs not
far from $1 ,000 a month for wages, fuel
and provisions to run it. Like this boat,
they are screw steamers and are rigged
with one mast for'ard. which is fitted
with a crane for taking in the catch.
The men's quarters are in the for' castle.
The fish are stored in bulk in the hold.
The engine house, as you see, is astern
the main hatch, with coal bunkers open
ing on deck each side. All of 'eui have
fitted to the bulwarks on either side,
near the stern, cranes for the boats, and
towing chocks are set in the deck on
either quarter aft. The hold or tank for
storing the fish is water tight. There
are some steamers engaged in the fishery
which are more'n 150 feet long, carrying
from twenty-seven to thirty men, and
cost $30,000 aui upward. Most of the
steamers carry four seine boats.
"Since steamers have come into vogue
the factories have greatly increased
their facilities for handling large catch
es. The first factory could work up
only a few hundred barrels a day, while
now the big factories take from 3.000 to
5,000 barrels daily." New York Herald.

ChallaKiK a Critical JouroalUt.
A very slight and jmlito criticism in
dulged in at th expense of a cavalry of
ficer who was riding aliout a week ago
at the h"i-s show has assumed the pro
portions of a serious event. The officer
in question Kent a letter to the writer
saying tliat lie could uiiler-ta;id the
criticising the horsemanship of j.K-kys
and grooms, but th.-t lie had no bi i:.t s
to pas any remarks on that of "g--i!'!
men or oilicers." He forbade t!; jour
nalist to mention his name, and wound
up by adding tliat his sole right was
that of the stronger and that he would
prove it if the offense were repealed.
The journalist in a second paragraph re
marked that he did not think he had
acted improperly in criticising the per
formances of horsemen who rode iu
public place to which admission was olc
tained by payment, and, referring to tin
letter, said he could not believe that it
"had been penned by a French olfic er,
and was convinced that it was a forgery.
Thereupon the cavalry officer n.-nt two
of his friends to tho journalist with a
hostile message, and 111 the duel that
followed he wounded him in the arm.
He thus proved that he was "Le plus
fort." But the affair is creating a gn at
sensation, the prevailing opinion being
that the argument employe I by the ofu
cer was, to say the least, utterly illogi
cal iu fact, this unlucky episode has
brought once more on the tapis the
vexed question of the expediency of
military men displaying their prowess
at races and horse shows. Paris Cor
Will Live in a ;1:iks Mouse.
At the city of Dinard, in the depart
ment of Ille-et-Vilaine, France, there
lives a man distinguished both for his
originality of ideas and for the fullness
of his money bags. He has been sjieak
ing and teaching for a long time upon
the necessity of men lieginning to lead
lives of greater purity, so that they need
not be afraid of having all their deeds
under the incessant supervision of so
ciety'. He is himself willing to submit
to the trial and wants to find others to
do the same. He has determined to
have a three story house built all of
glass. A dwelling of such transparency
would not not only allow its inhabitants
at all times a splendid prospect in every
direction upon the beautiful country
surrounding the place, but also expose
the minutest details of the daily life of
the people in the house to the inspection
of the entire city.
The originator of tho idea has found
an architect willing to build the house on
condition that he receives payment i 1
advance. But there is no renting agent
that will take the agency for it. If it is
to be a lodging house for bachelors, theyr
say, they may be able to do something
with it, but they cannot find a female,
they think, that would consent to livo
in a glass house. Nevertheless the old
gentleman is determined to realize his
idea. Chicago Herald.
Tree Trunks Filled with Squirrels.
Woodchoppers on Dr. Price's Lennpe
farm report tliat squirrels are very
numerous among the trees. When the
choppers began last fall there were
several acres of trees standing and the
squirrels were not numerous, but as the
trees were cut, a few at a time, the
little animals were driven from one
place of refuge to another until all were
gathered into a small space, and the lew
remaining trees are filled with them. A
man who had been working among
them says some of the hollow trees are
packed so full of squirrels that tho tim
bers creak every time the animals draw
a deep breath.

A Sad Story.
A contemporary relates that there was
a tragedy in the composing room of a
Philadelphia paper the other day. The
compositors were busy at their cases
when one of their number, a young
woman, fainted away, and she was con
veyed to her home. Another compositor
finished her "take,' which proved to be
an account of a suicide in another city.
There were forty compositors in the
room, but this particular copy fell to I
this particular young woman, and the
suicide was her affianced sweetheart.
