Pickerel Fishing Through the Ice.
At this tin:" of year there is no more
exciting sport than pickerel li-hing
through the ice. And. taking the whole
year round. Maine sportsmen have no
pursuit that is more exhilarating. Pick
erel bile well after the ponds have ju-t
frozen over, ami the lisjiermeu like to
get on the ice about as -non a- it will
bear their weight. Talk with an incor
rigible angler for half an hour and you
will generally lind him full of old chimney-corner
super-titions and traditions
of the forest ami -tream. One of the
current beliefs is that the lir-t time a
green hand goe-out he i-bound to have
good luck. Another tradition is that
pickerel sometimes swim or .-coot on a
down grade, and sometimes on an up
grade, and that when they have their
noses pointed toward the bottom you
can't catch one. if your pickerel bail
were peaches and cream. The pi-cato-rial
belief in the inlliieuec of the -igiis of
the almamic i- profound. And your sly
old fisherman generally consults his al
manac before he catches hi- bait.
"When the signs are in the belly they'll
bite well every lime. I don't know
what the meaning of it is. but I -'po-e
they're hungry." aid a eteran whom
we con-ultcd on the zodiacal que-tioii.
Fi-h will not bite well when I hey are
spawning. Their many trait-afford a
wide range for study. " Fish are dread
ful contrary critters." is the way the
afore-aid veteran sums up his philoso
phy. When the pickerel fisher finds
the signs and the weather right, he
takes Ids dip-net and goes down to the
river after live minnows for bait. These
foolish little fish are attracted into
the line nie-hes by meal liberally
fed to them. The pickerel doe.-n't rei-i-h
dead food, and must be caught' with
live bait. The fun of pickerel-li-hinc is
in your ability to have -o many -trings
a-going at once. Twenty-live is a fair
number, although two men can ti-h with
forty. Cutting the holes through the
ice is fun. if you have a sharp chisel and
I he ice isn't over four inches thick, but
when you have two feet of -olid freeze
under you and an old ax with which to
penetrate it. it's more like business. Two
men generally go together, and one set--the
sticks and arranges the lines while
the other cuts the holes. The man who
-ets the lines first gets the bottom and
id justs his bait about two feet above it
more or less, perhaps, according to
his own idea of the correct thing. The
lines are attached to poles set in the ice
at an angle of about forty-live degrees
over the holes. Each line is al-o looped
over a bob screwed loosely on the pole,
so that when a pickerel bites and darts
off. the bob is turned ami forms a cross
with the longer stick, thus signalizing
the fisherman. One of the ways of the
pickerel is to chew his bait a little while,
and this is in favor of his catcher. When
the pickerel commence to bite before the
lines are all set. :is they frequently do.
the excitement is at its pitch. "There
goes one!" shouts one man. There's
another!'' shouts his chum, dropping his
ax and running to pull him up. and
when the twenty-five or forty lines are
all in. ami are pulling -harp, who then
wouldn't be a pickerel lisher? LcicMon
A Homance of the Jeanncttc.
For more than eighteen months past a
beautilul and accomplished young lady
: of this city the lovely and roiiiance
I inspiring footstool of the angels has
1 leen in a constant state of hope and
despair. The news received night be
fore last from the wandering Jeannette
has sent gladness and sorrow to many a
breast, but to the young lady in ques
tion it has created the most anxious
fears. Yesterday, just before the San
Francisco train pulled out, a matronly
old lady might have been seen support
ing a heavily veiled young woman.
They were evidently mother and
daughter from the tender and motherly
manner in which the elder lady looked
after the slightest want of her compan
ion. A Times reporter, noticing the
couple, surmised that the young lady
was laboring under some great mental
sorrow. He looked toward the coach
from which the ladies had just alighted
and saw that it was a private carriage.
His curiosity was aroused. He ap
proached and cautiously interrogated
the drh er. The old coachman was very
reticent, and the news gatherer was
about to give up in despair when an
idea struck him. He. put it into execu
tion at once by telling the old man that
his interest in the two ladies had been
aroused from the fact that he believed
he saw a family resemblance between
himself and them.
'I just arrived here the other day,"
said the reporter, "and I have every
reason to believe that the elder lady is a
very near relation of mine."'
This nad the desired effect and xha
poor old man unfolded a story of ro
mance in real life that never occurs
more than once in a century. It seems
that Miss wa vi-iting friends in
San Francisco during the winter of
1678-'J. She met Lieutenant Dancn
hower. of the Tinted Mates Navy-, a
noble specimen of manhood. The Lieu
tenant was smitten with the fair daugh
ter of Los Angeles. They met often.
1 and the sequel wa- soon evident in a
! desperate hue affair. Rut the old. old
saying that true love never ran smooth
j was never more plainly ilhi-trated than
in this cae. For -eieral month- there
was not a happier pair in all San Fran
I cisco. This earthly bli-s could not la-t
long, however. The Lieutenant was
then under orders to sail with the ill
fated Jeannette. A- the time drew near
i tie -weet girl became -ad and pensive
and it was a common thing for her to
meet her loer with tearful eye-. She
i told him her fears, and pleaded with all
! the eloquence only known to a lovely
' maiden, but her lover had been ordered
by his country to go to alino-t certain
death, and his honor would not permit
I him to break his word, even for the
: being he wor-hipped. Tie sad day of
separation finally arrived and the two
devoted lover- parted, possibly never to
j meet again in this world.
I This is the sad -tory told in brief by
the old coachman who related his tale
' with tears in his eyes.
" Yes. sir,1' said the old fellow, "she
has been a different girl ever since.
I Thev had only known one another a
-hurt time, but I don't b -lieve two peo-
pie ever loved as " ! this devoted
couple. Why. -ir. I. m :her -aid that
-when the Lieutenant esoie to bid her
good-by it took two o: his brother offi
cers to -cparatc them when the mo
ment of parting came. She fainted al
most as soon as he was out of the house.
When she revived she ordered a car
riage and immediately repaired to the
Cliff House. As soon as she arrived
there she took a stand where she could
'ct a "nod view of the Golden Gate.

General Grant's Cigar.
A friend once said he made a calcula
tion that the value of the cigar--inoked
by General Grant during his campaigns
would pay the whole cost of the late war
and leave a re-pcctablc balance to begin
the next. This wa- probably an ex
aggeration, but he certainly did smoke
a great many line and costly cigars dur
ing the period alluded to. The writer
was a witness and partly an aetor when
four of General Grant's very costly
cigars were consumed, or rather de
stroyed, in a very brief space of time.
Shortly before the close of the war he
had occtision to bring .some important
dispatches to headquarters, ami. as soon
as they were opened and digested by
the General, an invitation to breakfast
followed, after which a cigar was ten
dered and accepted, and the General
and the writer proceeded down towards
This, which was an entirely new
structure, was of immen-c length and
had been built to replace one destroyed
by lire, the result of an explosion of
shells which were being landed for the
ie of the arm v. There had been great
lo-s of life from this accident, and to
guard against repetition of it, the Gen
eral had is-ued an order that no smok
ing should be allowed on the wharf. To
carry out the order the more effectually,
sentries had been po-ted at each end,
with directions to allow no one to pa
with a lighted pipe or cigar. The Gen
eral, who desired to give some instruc
tions to the writer to lie adopted on his
return, had evidently forgotten the
terms of his own order about smoking,
and stepped on the wharf cigar in mouth.
He was immediately confronted by
the sentinel (who happened to be a col
ored man), who presented arms most
respectfullv. but added: "Regparding.
Gineral, but dere's no smoking" Towed
heah." The General flung his cigar into
the James, the writer followed suit, and
we proceeded slowly down the wharf.
Upon arriving at about the center of it
the General stopped to emphasize some
particular he was desirous to impress
upon me. when he mechanically took
from his breast pocket two other cigars,
handed me one. and from his fusee case
produced a light. After we got our
cigars well started, he proceeded towanl
the other end of the wharf, entirely ob
livious of the fact that there was another
Upon arriving at the end. however,
the sentry, another colored man, drew
himself up to his full height, saluted the
General, and immediately- added. " Reg
parding. Gineral. but dere's no smokin'
Towed heah." Whereupon the General
turned to me and said, "Confound these
niggers, let's go somewhere where we
cansmoke." and flung his cigar into the
river, w hieh was followed by mine. It
was supposed at one time that no cigar
could be manufactured too strong for
General Grant, but that has proved a
fallacy. When he became President,
some friends, knowing his taste for high
flavored tobacco, sent an order to Hav
ana for live thousand of the largest and
strongest cigars that could be made,
cost being no consideration. They were
duly sent, when the order was com
pleted, to New York, and co-t without
duty SSOO a thousand, or eighty cents
apiece. They were so strongr however,
as not to be smokable even by the Gen
eral, and he had to give most of them
away to any of his friends who would
accept them. Philadelphia Press.
A Chinese steamer the Meifoo
has arrived in the Thames. It is the
first of a regular line of steamers sailing

In the long winter evenings there arc '
manv hours that can be made most u-e-ful
in the household, if the father and
mother will only adopt some plan of in- (
-truction and entertainment in which ;
all the household can be included. It
is too much the habit in familie-. both !
in th" country and city, to leave each
member to go its own "way. The father
reads his newspaper beside the center ,

Occupations for winter evenings, ol
course, mu-t be varied according to the
eircuin-tanees and tastes of the family
but music should have its place in tli
home life, whenever it is practicable,
anil in that family where the piano L'
alwavs opened ami the mother ever
willing to play accompaniments a'ld to
lead the singing, the happic-t home lift
is found. One need not be able to play
or sing -cientilic inu-ie to give plea-ure '
to children: and if the father is not will-;
ing to lend his aid to the general enter-1
taiiiinent he should at lea-t not throw aj
wet blanket over those who participate
in it. by objecting to the di-turbaiief
they create. The best way not to be
di-turbed bv the noise is to join in the
amusements:, but if you cannot be s(.
unselfish as to rejoice in the others' joy, j
quietly ab-ent you r-elf from their mid-t.
There are many quiet games which '
can be played in a large family thai
are both iii-tructiveand aniti-ing. Aftei '
the children's hour of fun. there could !
be an hour of reading aloud by some ,
member or members of the family.!
There can be no better wav to increase
the taste for choice literature than by i
home reading, whether in a large oi
-mall circle. In a village, a youny I
people's club could be formed, to meet
once or twice a week and take up a'
course of reading, either hi-torical or;
political, or in general literature. Hall
a dozen or a dozen young ladies and
gentlemen would lind -ueh a way ol ,
pa ing an evening quite as entertain-
iii-rlvas if it were -pent in silly com er-a- '
tion' on dre-s. fashion and go ip. Read
ing aloud is achariningaccomplishinent '
when one excels in it. and by practice '
almost everyone can succeed in it. am1 ,
take turns in the reading. In a circle ;
of old friends of my acquaintance, some
of them high in" the lifties. reading
aloud while theothcrs worked, has been
a practice for over a third of a century,
and the mo-t charming hours of theii
lives, nnt-ide their families, have beei,
pa ed in this manner: and many a his- t
torical work, many a biography, ami
many a noteworthy novel, have beei, (
read by them, and are always closely
a ociatcd with each other. '
The reading club need not be given
up wholly to the young people, but the
middle-aged and the old will also fimi
theni a delightful entertainment in the,
long snowy, dark evening-, when tin'
monotony of home life seems almo-t un
bearable." and the seven evenings of the
week are looked forward to with almost
dread, as they mu-t be pas-ed so stu
pidly. The evening paper once read

Geraniums in the Window Garden.
It is very rare to see a well-grown ge
ranimn invvindow culture. Even if the
plants bloom fairly, they are often
drawn up. misshapen things, not pleas
ing to look upon. In the majority of
cases, plants that have lieen set out in
the garden for the summer are allowed
to gfi as you please." The roots find
ing an abundance of rich soil, the tops
grow off at a famous rate. At the aj
proaeh of cool weather the plants arc
taken up as they stood: if any cutting is
done, it is at the roots, to bring them
within the limits of a pot, and the plants
are placed in the window. As a conse
quence of such treatment the majority of
the h'aves fade and fall, ami show a lot
of long, lankv stems, with a small tuft
of leaves at the top. This condition of
the plants is due either tr a lack of
knowledge or to timidity. Amateur cul-
tivators. as a general thing, seem to fear
to use the knife: could the plants cuffer '
oain. they would not ho more reluctant
:o cut. The proper method is to pre- i
pare the plants for taking in long before
the time for lifting them : but it i- too late
to ail vise that as it is to suggest pruning !
them at the time of taking them up. .
Even at this late day it is better to cut
back the geraniums to a good shape j
than to let them remain as they are. Of !
course each plant will have its own ,
needs in this respect, and only general ',
advice can be given. Cut back the long ,
;tems in such a manner that the plants
will form a low, rounded head, and re- !
move altogether such branches a will .
make the nead too much crowded. In .
pruning the stems, cut just above a bud
or leaf scar. If the cut be made just be
low a bud. or hat f-wav between two
5uds. the stem will die down to the next i
bud below, leaving an unsightly :ub. ;
Kew growth will" soon start and the :
plant will, after awhile, present an ap
pearance so greatly improved that the '
owner 'will regret that it had not been ?
done before. Geraniums are not the
only window plants that need pruning i
to lseep them in a neat form, but those
who take proper care of their plants can '
do much of this by pinching with the
thumb and finger nails, or removing al- .
together those buds that appear where a
shoot is not desired. American Agri- ,
