Ordinarily one would think that t
fish in the km could go where It wish

go as far dovvu or come as close to
the surface as It desired. As there
are deli nit e uatural laws that prohibit
this, of course it Is not possible.
Take u deep sea osh. it is under
enormous pressure at it proer depth.
Let it stray too high, however, and on
the pressure lessening the tlsh gets
larger and consequently lighter per
unit volume and iu consequence Is pro
pelled upward at an enormously in
creasing rate by the buoyancy of the
water until at Inst it bus to be ex
pelled from the surface of the sen
with great force. In the meantime
the fish bus suffered an Internal ex
plosion.' as It were, uud its eyes have
popped out of its bead, and Us insidos
have expnuded and made holes in the
body. This Is why there ure no per
fect specimens of deep sea fish in any
museum. The difficulty could be part
ly overcome by hauling the fish up
gradually, but a heavy weight would
bare to be attached to the lire to over
come the buoyancy of the tlsh.
On the other band, take a shallow
water fish. It dares not stray too far
dowu, for the increasing pressure
would tend to ninke it heavier If it
was at all compressible, but as it is
not much so It would remain practi
cally the same volume and would tlnd
no difficulty in propelling itself to al
most any depth. The Increasing pres

for the fish to move its organs, and
Its eyes would be pressrd into Its
For all those reasons there are well
defined strata of wnter In which cer

Is one method of determining the
depth of a former sea where fossils of
fish are found on the land. The depth
of the sea at thnt place can be told
within certain limits by the fossils.

"the larger the wire the more electric

SOME TRICKS OF THE TRADE.
Clever Scheme of a Light Fingered
Lady Who Worked Nearly .Every
Dealer In New York Ingenious
Trick of a Smooth Berlin Swindler.
A former State street Jeweler who
la now a member of a Jewelers' pro
tectlve association and travels over
the entire world in search of dlu
nioud and gem thieves told some or
the interesting methods used by the
expert thief to steal Jewelry, says the
"Women mnke good diamond
thieves." he said, "as dealers must
not take a cbnuce of offending a cus
tomer, lest she be a rich man's wife
or daughter whose trade if obtained
regularly would amount to thousnuds
a year. Any woman well dressed and
possessing a certain amount of re
finement can see the eutire stock of
almost any denier In the country.
When Bhe is clever enough she can
get a stone or piece of Jewelry during
"One New York woman came Into
a large store and asked to see some
unset diamonds. The proprietor of
the store waited on her and showed
her a large collection of Une stones
She displayed a monster roll of bills
and was about to purchase nn expen
sive Jewel when she asked whether
her husband could see It. 'Why, cer
ta nly. replied the proprietor. 'Wei
will send It over to him now.' The
woman hesitated and Anally asked
whether they would hold the stone un
til that afternoon und she would make
a deposit of $10 on It
"This appeared perfectly proper to
the owner, but when Bhe left two vol
uable stones were missing. The wo
man was bulled, taken to the police
headquarters aud searched. The gems
were not found on her. and lu her In
dlgnntlon she threatened to bring suit
against the proprietor. lie had beeu
sure she hud taken the stones, but lu
his profusion of apology offered to give
her the one she hud been looking at
and at the same time refund her $10.
This was better than a suit and the
loss of all the supposed friends of the
woman, thought the dealer. She ac
companied him back to the store and
while there, watched by detectives,
made her way up to the case where
she had stood before and. slipping her
hand along the under edge, recovered
the two missing stones, stuck there
In a little ball of chewing gum.
"The detectives did not know posi
tively at thnt time whether she hnd
taken anything from the counter, but
decided to keep further watch over
her At another store several days
Inter, while she was Inspecting gems,
a stone was dropped on the floor 'ac
cidentally.' and this also was lost
Gum on the front of the shoe had
got this one. The woman was ar
rested and confessed that she hnd
swindled nearly every denier in New
York with her gum trick.

walked into a general Jewelry store,
knowing the owner bad a flue din

diamond himself aud went Into the
store apparently to have an old Ger
man watch repaired. lie started to
talk of diamonds nnd exhibited his
own as a choice stone. He was shown
the other stoue by the dealer. They
discussed diamonds in every phase
until the watch was repaired, when
the stranger started to pay for the
repairing. lie exhibited a large roll
of bills nnd purposely overpaid. Dur
ing the slight confusion of counting
hi money nnd paying for his watch
he hnd substituted for the genuine dia

carefully wrapped up und placed in
Its box by the dealer, while the
stranger was sauntering out with his
