Under All Circumstances and
Kate Field onee visited the Isles
of Shoals, and went flailing with an j
New England skipper. During the.'
voyage site interviewed the old salt
on the iish question, with the follow
ing result:
Saiil I to (he skipper:
"What do you consider the best
fish for boiling?”
Skipper—Boiling? Why cod, to
I And what is host for baking?
Skipper—You couldn't have no
better fish nor cod for Imking.
1—Mow is it with broiling?
Skipper—I never tasted no better
Iish, for broiling than end.
1—What is your opinion about
frying ?
"Frying 1" repeated the skipper,
scratching bis head; “why, what
would you fry but cod?”
I—What fish is best for general
purposes ?
Skipper—General purposes! Cod
can't he beat for general purposes, 1
toll you!

In a recent book on “The Evolu
tion of Dross,” Mr. W. M. Webb
shows that many details of modern
dress, generally regarded as prod
ucts of caprice or accident, or of the
invention of tailors and milliners,
are traceable to primitive forms, and
that fashion in costume is the result
of it process of evolution in which
early ideas continually crop out. The
earliest form of dress seems to have
been the shawl, or wrapper, and
fringes date back to the first loom.
The hatband is traced to the original
fastening of the first cloth head
dress. Puttees are as old as Mycenae.
A mystery yet unexplained is the
sewing of the buttons on the right
hand side of a man’s coat and the
left-hand side of a woman’s.—

Attention was called some time
iigo to the fact that a policeman in
uniform carrying a baby in his arms
was a fairly rare sight. There is an
other almost as rare. Very few per
sons have seen a policeman on duty
who wore glasses and no one has seen
a policeman who sported spectacles.
In the station houses occasionally
the desk man will use eyeglasses as
he is writing up his book. It is a
good deal like looking for bearded
policemen. There are few of them.
Indeed, in the new generation of po
lice officers even the mustache is un
usual.—N. Y. Sun.
Father Vaughan of London,
preaching on marriage, remarked
that a woman said to him: “When
you have seen one man you have seen
them all, in all their moods and
tenses. They are all alike.” His
reply was : “It may be so, but wom
an is like an irregular French verb
and unless a man studies her in all
'her peculiar moods and tenses he will
misconstrue and so misinterpret her,
much to his disadvantage.”
Count Venzel Kaunits, a minister
of Bohemia, who was married recent
ly on his sixty-first birthday to a
beautiful peasant girl of 20, has pre
sented his mansion in Brunn, valued
at $160,000, to the University of
Prague. The count and his bride
have decided to live the simple life.

From Our Regular Kansas City
Stock Yards Correspondent
Kansas City Stock yards, Nov, 9
The small supply of 57000 cattle
here last week, and reduced mar
keting at all points, resulted in a
week of bullish enthusiasm in the
cattle trade. The strong senti
ment all week culminated Friday
in a final dizzy advance, placing
the market on killing cattle 50 to
oOc higher for the week- Packers
acted as though they were com
pelled to have supplies, and it is
said that stocks of meat in cool
ers are much reduced from a
short time ago. Cooler weather
has opened up the beef outlet,and
the activity of buyers last week
promises well for the future of
the market. The run today is
heavy at all points, as was anti
cipated, and the general market
is 15 to 25 lower than Friday, but
still considerably above a week
ago. Trade is active, and all
hands evince a desire for supplies.
A large percentage of the run to
(lay is lrom the range country.
I Strictly prime beeves are not a
factor in the market as none have
been offered here lately, top to
day $<> 50. a few sales last week
at $7 to $7.05. fair to good fed
steers $5 to $(>.50. grass steers
$3.60 to $•>, grass cows S3 to $4,
fed heifers up to $5 25,bulls $2-40
to $3 75, calves 25 to 50c above a
week ago. $3.50 to $7. Stockers
and feeders advanced 15 io 25c
last week,steady to strong today,
good sized strings of range Stock
ers available out of first hands at
$3 60 to $4.25. feeders S3.60 to
$4.30, choice native cattle slight
ly above these figures, and com
mon stuff around $3.
The hog market shows a gain
for last week of ISc per cwt net,
although receipts were 74,000
head, a big increase over same
week last year. The run today
is 1 (>,000 head, market 10 to 20
lower than Saturday, top $5.95,
bulk of sales, including all
weights $5.35 to $5.85- Heavy
bogs lead in price, but buyers al
so take good butcher weights up!
to the top price, indicating a|
wide outlet for the fresh pork. |
Average weights a re slightly j
heavier each week, and quality!
better. Prices a year ago were
50 to 75c lower than now, the
panic a bear factor at that time. j
There was fairly good run of l
range sheep and lambs here last
week, and prices advanced 15 to
30c on killing stuff, with top
lambs at 8<> for the week. The
small run here today 4500 head,
makes this market independent of
all others and prices are 10 high
er. although other points report
a break of 15 to 25c today. Top
lambs sold here today at $5-85,
only fairly good, wethers 84.50,
ewes 84.40, yearlings late last
week at 84.80. Country demand
is sufficient to absorb the supply,
and strength in killing stuff has;
been reflected in a measure in i
stock and feeding stuff, lambs,
worth 84 25 to 84.nO. sheep and
yearlings 83.40 to 83.00.
