At a bend in one of these creeks, not
very far from the big sand dunes, was
a bare-footed, tow-headed boy at dusk
Jsst night- He was dressed in a broken
fetraw hat, a gingham waist, and a pair
of brown jeans trotisers that were kept
in place when he was on his feet bya
single white cotton suspender. His
. feet were hanging down over the water
tis he sat on the sodded banks. He was
stringing common earth worms length
wise on a piece of white cotton twine
"by the aid of a darning needle. When
lie had surrounded a half a yard of tho
twine with the worms he tied tho two
ends of the twine together, aud then
doubled over the stringed worms till
they hung in a bunch like a tassel.
Around this he tied the end of a lish
line attached to a slender twelve-foot
" What arc you going to do with
"Ketch somo bullheads?"
"Where's your hook?"
"Don't need none."
"Don't need any hook!"
The boy swung the bunch of worms
out and lowered it into the water with
niit. a rinnlo near the root of an old
sycamore stump. In about a minute
he began to raise it very deliberately
out of tho water. When the end of tho
line reached tho surface a catfish was
hanging fast to the tassel of bait. The
fish clung to the bait whilo tho boy
slowlv swung it over the land and gavo
the pole a smart shako; then it fell on
the grass and flopped vigorously.
"Them bullheads is such dodblastcd
hogs they don't know when they've got
enough," the bov remarked.
Old John Heresy sat in the fish shanty
at tho mouth of the creek when he was
told of the exploit. He said: "Tho boy
was bobbing for catfish. His father
fnmn from .fersev where eels are as
plentiful as mosquitoes. They bob for
eels there, only they use yarn to string
the worms on "instead of twine. The
oels catch their teeth in tho yarn. The
bullheads hang on just as the boy said,
because they don't know enough to let
go. They keep trying to swallow the
bait- 1 can tell of another queer way
to catch bullheads. There was a chap
here from Down East last spring that
could give us all points on catching
fish. He was walking along on the
banks of tho dead creek out by that
sycamore stump one evening. It was
warmish like, and nothing stirring."
" 'Good timo to catch a string of
bullheads," said I. Guess Til get a
pole and try 'cm. Want a pole ?'
" ' Yes, you might bring me one,'
" With that he sat down on the grass
and took what I thought was a paper
of tobacco from his coat pocket, while
I started for the shanty. I was back
in ten minutes, and found three fine
fish lying on the grass with their
mouths slit open. How had he caught
them? With a thread and needle.

spool of stout linen thread and a thick
needle about two inches and a quarter
long. He drew the end of tho thread
through the eye of the needle until ho
had end enough to whip half the length
of the needle, leaving the upper half
dear, and the point sticking up toward
the spool when the thread hung down.
Then he split a bullet half in two with
his jacknife, pressed it on to the thread
a foot from the nee.lle, turned over a
log and got a couple of worms, strung
one lengthways on the needleso that an
inch or so dangled loose, and dropped
it in. It required about two minutes
to get the job done and a fish biting."

"So should I, but the fish swallows
the needle right down, aud whon the

the fish by a smart blow on the head."
As the law does not permit the use of
nets, tho fishermen tliat still remain

about the size of :i clothes line, and
long enough to reach across the creek,
is u-ed. Kvcry three or four feet a
stout, double eord. two feet long, with
a three inch hook at the bight, is at

baited with bits of beef liver or live
f rors. or beef itself. One end of the
big line is secured to tho root of a tree,
and the line is then stretched across the
creek. The line is raised twico a day.
Catfish from three to four feet long afe

prices from farmers, who drivo long
distances to buy them.
Catfish when small are a superior pan
fish. The flavor, according to sonie ex
perts, is second only to tho trout. The
nones are not troublesome. The larger
fish are great favorites also among those
who know how to cook them. The
Irving method is to cut them into con
venient pieces and cover them with
water in a frying pan. When the fish
is pretty well cooked, tho water is
drainedofl and a gravy made of butter
and cream is poured over tho lish.
When this has been brought to a boil
the fish is sen ed hot. It is delicious.

vessels to tho islands of tho Aleutian
group in search of more. Thus began
the fur trado to the Pacific. The little
sea-"-irt island is known to the present
day lis Behring's Isle. This was fol
lowed by tho establishment of stations
for the fur trade on tho islands and at
various points on tho mainland. These
furs were chiefly procured by purchase
from the natives, and were all sent by
vessel to the town of Pctropavlovski,
in Kamtschatka, from which they wero

worth a dozen such as they frequently
made. Russians occupied the coasts

gradually until there were forty sta
tions established on tho islands and
mainlands, with headquarters at New
Arlin.nrrol. or Sitka, as it is now called.
The charter was renewed in 18:W, and
expired finally in I860, and four years
later Alaska was purchased by the
United States. In 1870 the Govern
ment leased to the Alaska Commercial
Company the exclusive privilege o
catching fur seals in the new territory,
confining them to tho two islands of St.
Paul and7 St George, and limiting the
number of seals to be killed annually
to 100,000. This lease was for twenty
years, and has six years yet to run.
The yearly rental is $55,000 and 2 tax
upon each seal taken, not enough to
pay in the twenty years the purchase
price, though the company has realized
that sum many times over. The North
west Trading Company has stations at
various points, where are collected
furs of all kinds, and where they are
largely engaged in packing fish and
manufacturing oil. The fur-bearing
animals that abound, such as the wolf,
fox, beaver, ermine, marten, otter,
squirrel, bear, and the numberless
multitude of fur seals that swarm about
the rocks and islands of the coasts, fur
nish an annual supply of fur that is ex
ceedingly valuable. It was at first
feared that the destruction of 100,000
seals annually would result in their
practical extermination, but observa

Western Dressed Beer for tba East,
The trade in dead meats is rapidly
increasing. Its progress and success
interest every breeder, farmer and
feeder in the West; everything which
helps to supply the eastern and foreign
markets with cheaper and better meats
increases the demand. Several eastern
butchers have naturally opposed the
sale of western dressed meats as it in
terferes with their profits, and lowers
the price of meat there, and some news
papers have joined the cry without in

The bridegroom's most notable recent

instance, has tho words "1 want to

These cards are all alike except the

John Lubbock also thinks it is feasible
to teach certain animals to talk, or,
perhaps, it would be more correct to
say, to givo somo indication by the
sounds they can utter of what they
want done." By cultivating the vocal
organs and the"intelligence,he suspects
that in the course of generations,
horses, dogs and other large brained
animals may develop niarvelou-iy in
the direction of what might be called

For years Spain, by her possession of
Mexico and Central America, dominated
the Pacific and enriched herself with
the commerce of the Indies. In vain
England and other powers sought lor
some other route into the Pacific than
the long and dangerous one around
Cape Horn. There existed at that time
a general belief among geographers
that from Hudson's Bay or the North
Sea, as the Arctic Ocean was then
called, and which was considered easily
accessible from the Atlantic, there
must be a passage into the Pacific,
which was known as the Straits of
Anian. Diligent search on the Atlan
tic side, and occasional voyages in the
Pacific, failed to reveal sucn a geo
graphical feature. At last, in 1728, a
Kussian expedition under Behring
sailed through the straits which now
bear his name, without being aware
that they were out of the open sea.
In 1741 Behring, after a long voyage
in search of the American coast, sighted
the snowy crest of this giant peak, the
first glimpse the great explorer had of
a single blow, either with a "spear or
a hammer. The "spear" is a long,
heavy iron bar, with a chisel blado
at one cud. Raising this above the
animal ho instantly severs the spine at
its junction with the skull. If tho ham
mer is used, a singlo blow in the fore
bead is effective. As the animal falls
the door is opened into the slaughter
house and the carcass is drawn in. A
finishing blow is given with a heavy
hammer to mako doubly sure that no
life remains, and the nextinstantamau
thrusts a long, sharp knife through tho
breast opening tho great artery direct
ly above the heart An attendant
catches the spouting blood in a largo
uan and empties it into a barrel. An
other skillful hand strips tho skin from
tho head and severs it from the neck.
The carcass is then elevated by chains
and a steam windlass. Hero it is
skinned, dressed, and cut in halves,
which arc run off to tho rear portion of
ihe room where they hang until the
animal heat has escaped, after which
they arc suspended in the cold-room.
A moment's observation shows that
everything is done with the utmost
order and regularity. Passing down
the long floor from one carcass to the
next, tho workmen acquire perfect dex
terity, never making a iaise or useless
motion. The skillful arc paid from

neatness prevails. So thoroughly is tho
place scrubbed and cleaned every day
that no taint or unpleasant odor is per

Above tho cold-rooms arc lofts filled

Origin of the Hohenzollerns.
The dynasty of the Hohenzollerns in
Prussia has a greater antiquity thau any
other of the chief reigning houses of
Europe; for, although they did not re
ceive their sceptre at the hands of Sigis
mond until the early part of the Fif
teenth Century, they have transmitted
it, without interruption and without
dispute, during the whole subsequent
Eeriod. How diflcrent within that time
ave been the fortunes of many other
royal houses! In England the succession
has been so often changed by force and
by law that the principle of hereditary
right is become a mere tradition of Tory
jurists. The quarrels of rival pretenders
in Spain have wasted the splendid
legacy of Ferdinand and Isabella. The
Bourbons have twice acquired aud
twice lost the throne of France. The
ancestors of the Romanoffs had just be
come domiciled in Russia as subjects of
the Tartar Czars, the Turks were still
besieging Constantinople, and the fam
ily of Hapsburg-Lorraine had not en
tered the peerage of Europe, when
BurgTavc Frederic of Hohenzollern
became Margrave anil Elector of Bran
denburg. The family take their name from the
heights of Zollern Hohen-Zollern the
ancestral seat in the Suabian Alps; and
they first appear in positive history
about the time that the Emperor Henry
IV. was making his penitent pilgrimage
to the papal court at Canossa. Beyond
this all is conjecture. But conjecture
is free; and while the loyal and learned
Dr. Cernitius. the first biographer of
the race, connects his heroes with
the noble Italian family of Colonna,
the Elector Albert Achilles, more am
bitious and less prudent, boldly placed
his ancestors among the fugitives who
followed Eneas from Troy. As a myth
this is perhaps as good as any other;.
but the historian can trace the house
back safelv only about eight hundred
years, or to the middle of the eleventh
century. A hundred years later the
Count of Zollern became, bya fortunate
marriage, Burggrave of Nuremberg.
The family thus reunited extensive
possessions throughout Germany; and
though not Electors, the Counts were
grandees, and powerful grandees, of
the Empire. What their own contem
poraries thought of them is fortunately
not known fortunately, because it
leaves their p'anegyrists at liberty to
ascribe to them all'manner of virtues
fidelity, moderation, courage, piety,
i even learning; while it is notorious that
tli.nr nniirlilinTM vpn hmwlinnr ;mil
dissolute narons, robbing peasants and
traders, flaying Jews, and transferring
their feudal allegiance with politic
fidelity from one pretender to another
in the Empire, lint the remarkable
virtues of this family were not long pre
served under the control of a single
head. The two tons of Frederic, first
Burggrave of Nuremberg, made a
partition of their inheritance, one of
them retaining Nuremberg aud the
burggraviate; the other, the older pos
sessions in Suabia. It is from the first
of these that the present royal family
of Prussia is descended, the "line being
represented early in the fifteenth cen
tury by Burggrave Frederic VI. Her

M.Jules Ferry, in a brilliant speech

so active is his mind concerning tno
prospective trip. His father helps him
on the horse, and he sits on the bag as
proud of his position as a king is of his
throne. Evory object along the lonely
road interests him. He plucks the bloom
from the dog-wood and almost falls off
when the horse reaches around to bito
him-elf. He rides into a creek to let
the horse drink and spits at tho min
nows that swim around. After he goes
up the bank, on tho opposite side of tho
stream, and pursues his course along
the road, he notices with alarm that
the bao is slipping to one side. He
sits still further over to make the bag
balance, yet ho is not satis
lied, for it keeps sliding to one
sido and, at last it falls ofl. He ran
not restrain his tears, and though he
knows that he can not lift one end, yet
he tugs at the bag. The old horse
snorts, nibbles the grass and lashes tho
boy ncross tho eyes with his tail.
"Whoa, you old fool!" and tho discon
solate little fellow weeps afresh. He
can not leave the bag, fearful that some
one will steal it. Ho must wait the
tardy coming of a passer-by. I lo hoars
the sound of hoofs and he listens in
tently, whilo the swelling buds of his
hopo burst into full bloom. He is
doomed to disappointment, for the horse
hs no rider. Thunder rumbles in the
distance and ho will get wet. At last
he sees an old negro coming -nf
His heart beats high with hope. Hie

does not hear him. Another hour, that
seems an age draws itself alon. He
hears a va"on. He is almost wild with
joy. The iTriver, though a surly fellow,
lifts the bag up, and the boy, happy

when he does not think that he could

The Strong Rooms or the World.
Strong room is the standard English
name for what in this country is termed
largo vault for storage of valuables,
fluch'a.s cash, bonds, plates, etc. I like
iio trnoil old English name of strong
room, and so I will use it as applying
to safe deposit vaults tho world over.
I have visited many of them both sides
of tho water, aud all my life sinco boy
hood has been spent in looking after
them. Less than twenty years ago all
the strong rooms in this country which
were used for storage of cash, bonds,
and so forth, belonged to the banks
and bankers, and wero a part of ther
usiness machinery. Since that time
safe deposito companies have been
established, and they aro now numer
ous in this country, having larger and
better strong rooms than the bankers
aver had. No one will ever know how
many million dollars worth of valu
ables are stored in one of these great
safe de-tosito companies, for each cus
tomer has his own special lock-up
within the great central strong room,
and keeps his own keys and counsel. I
shall be asked who is responsible to de
positors for safe keeping of all these
treasures, and I reply, tho company is
responsible for the exercise of due care
and diligence in tho work it has under
taken, and what is demanded of it in
these premises would have to bo sot
tied in the courts if anv dispute in the
matter should arise between a loser
and the safo company. London tr.
