I'ouiiil Fishing for Scup.
Late in April great schools of porgies
rush on the southern .New JMigianu
ocean coast, and for several weeks all
the fishermen from Stonington fb New'
port have the liveliest kind of work
tending their great pounds on the wihl
shore. The fish usually appear first in
Rhode Island waters, in which state
they are called scup, and then the news
is flashed along shore to the Connecticut
fishermen. At once the latter begin to
set their pounds, for no time is to be lost
if money is to be made in scup fishing.
They erect a netted fence from the strand
straight into the ocean for many hun
dred rods, and at the end of the fence
Bet a great heart shaped pound, in which
tbft fish are captured.
A pound i3 a big and costly thing anJ
costs from $1,500 to $2,500. In the
fcfi. rht. of the season 100 or more barren
rf senn are taken daily from each one of
the pounds along the Connecticut an.l
Rhode Island shores. In two weeks'
fishing at Quonochontaug, a few miles
east of Watch Hill, Captain Andrew
Laughear took over 1,000 barrels of senp
out of his traps. Most other poundnien
have had almost equally good luck.
The fish are sold mainly in New York,
and in the rush of the season not less
than 1,000 barrels of porgies are shipped
thither each night by the big sound
boats from Stonington.
At first the fish fetch twelve dollars a
barrel, but the price drops rapidly as
the fish become plentiful. Often

The OKI Love Was tlie New.
Last evening at the residence of the
bride's father, south of Crawfordsville,
occurred the marriage of A. B. Rush,
aged about sixty j-ears, and a resident of
Missouri, to Miss Emma Branch, not
manv years the bridegroom's junior.
The couple were devoted lovers many

A Dust Storm at Sea.
The British ship Berean, which re
rentlv made the voyage from Tasmania
around Cape Horn to England, encoun
tered a remarkable but not unusual
phenomenon at sea, viz., a storm of dust.
Alter crossing the equator she fell into
the northeast trade winds, and when

The crews now take their places in the

taiu a true type of the traditional Cape
Codder, siiuare built, sturdy, genial, his
face bronzed by years of exinisure to
tmnshine and sea breezes and very intel
ligent withal takes his place at the in
side bow oar in one of the seine boats,
and the mate a corresponding position in
the other, and by the time they reach
the school the drivers describe the move
ments of the fish.
They now begin throwing out the
seine, each boat going in an opposite di-rer-tion
around the school, the drivers in
the meantime splashing the water to
fwh frmn escaninz. Soon the
boats meet, and all hands now pull at
tv.a rmrse line, the net and cork lme.
Th steamer is brought alongside, and
after the fish are driven well togetner
the net is fastened to the steamer s siue

The next thing on the programme is
to prepare the menhaden for salting, to
h 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 lish is
in the left hand of the workman
and with a peculiarly shaped knife held
in the rirht hand he cuts a slice, iongi
CT--- . , ... ,
tudinally, from each siae 01 tne oouy,
leaving the head and vertebrte to be
thrown awav or occasionally to be
pressed for oil. The slivers are salted
and packed in barrels.
This opening act of the day's drama
ied Car.tain Williams invites me U.
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 nu--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
an.l vellowtail 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. I hardly need tell you that it is
valuable as a bait fish, it excelling all
nthors as such: that as a food resource
it is thought to have great quaumes,
that its chief value is as a fetilizer and
nd that, it is also valuable for the cil
and scrap produced by cooking and
Dressing them
"For illustration, here are some min
utes I made in my memorandum oook
in regard to what was done m the year
1880 which was a fair representative sea
son. That vear the total weight of the
catch was 576,000 pounds-equivalent to
about 700,000,000 menhaden m number.
Pretty big army, eh? Quantity of oil pro
duced, 2,066,396 gallons, and of guano
68,904 tons, having a total value of

years,' however, the yield of oil was
small." . ,.

A Toy Iniluntry Festival.
A remarkable token of the importance
of "the toy industry in the ancient city of
Nurembnrg is afforded by the great
o-atheriug in one of the public halls at a
banquet in celebration of the completion
of the 300,000th model steam engine by
a well known maker. Among the guc ts
were the heads of the municipality and
several industrial and commercial cor
porations. The little model which marks this
stage in the toy making industry of tha
Nuremberg firm was consirut-ieu
the latest improvements. It was adorned
with a laurel wreath, and exhibited m
the hall side by side, in order to show
the progress in construction, with a
model of the date 1815. It is said that
this factory alone has alno turned out
more than 3-2.1,000 magic lanterns. Lon
