A BABY MERMAID.
WoudorftU Haul Made by a
How it wnji Captnrod and What
It i ,
' Say , mister , huv yea got tlmt ore
in huro ? " inquired
quired n Jersey farmer , ns ho poked
n frowsy head through the doorway of
Urookcr's liquor store , Second and
Fodornl streets , Uiumlcn , at noon yes
"Yes sir n-alk in "
, ; , replied
" ] ! o this it ( " asked tlio farmer , as
ho stood and pointed a sun-burned
liand lownrd n lively young Florida
alligator in n glass box.
"Xot exactly ; only ft second cousin
or BO , There's the tiling you eauioto
see hanginc up there on the wall. "
"Well , fcl bo swashed if that , don't
look just like Jenkins' now baby over
to the village. Taint n child , is it1 ?
"When told thai it was a inonnaid
fresh from the dophts of the Atlantic
the countryman's eyes stood out. on
his check bones , and he gazed around
at the crowd with a bewildered stare.
"A mermaid ! Vcll , well. I've '
hcern tell of such things ; an' my dar
ter what works over to the eolotu-l's
used to read out of picture books'bout
mecrmaids ncomon' their hair in the
ocean , but 1 never si-od one afore , "
and the old man's curiosity and won
derment knew no bounds.
WHAT 111 : WOMHUIKI ) AT.
The object in question , described by
many as n mermaid , from its roscm-
bianco to the human family , hung by
a string on the wall , and was being in
spected by a crowd of the curious. It
was about two foot and a half in
length , and so many points of resem
blance to a now-born child did it have
that many persons manifested little reluctance -
luctance in pronouncing it a genuine
baby mormaid. Its body , with the
exception of the foot and tail and t.ho
location of the arms , was in appear
ance the same as that of n child , and
might bo described as a revised ver
sion of a skinned monkey. Tho.head
ran to a peak at the top , and was seton
on n short neck and well-deflned
shoulders. The eyes were sunken ,
and wore covered , in lieu of eyelids ,
withgrisly scales. The nose was quite
prominent and ended in the mouth ,
the lips of which wcroof a hard , grisly
flesh , and fringed with eight teeth on
the inside four upper and four lower.
The tongue bore an almost perfect resemblance -
semblance to the human tongue , and
back of it could bo aeon two email ton
sils. The breast and abdomen wcro
remarkably similar to these of man ,
the ribs being well formed , but aoout
forty in number. The imns extended
to the hips , and terminated in five fin-
gel's , with claw-like nails , the joints
being at the point of connection with
the bodj. The logs wore long , term
inating in tins , and bore resemblance
to these of a baby. At the end of the
backbone a well-defined tail , five
inches in length , protruded , ending
vertically in two small fins. Slr.uiijo
to say there was not the sign of a scale ,
a Heft , fleshy ikin covering the entire
body , which was destitute of liair. The
weight of the creature was about nix
_ HOW IT WAS CAUC.UT.
"I was fishing for iloundcrs or
weakiish about seven miles ofTErigun-
tine beach in company with n yacht
ing party , " said James Garrison Jr. ,
of Caindon to a reporter , "and wJicn
I got tired of the sport I changed the
bait and threw the line in another
direction. Pretty soon I felt a strong
jerk and I thought I had a good-si/.cd
lish. I pulled in the line rapidly ,
thinking I had on a flounder , but you
could have floored mo with a feather
when I hauled that tiling on deck.
The captain yelled out : 'Shiver my
top-gallants , Garrison , but you've
cauuht a mermaid. ' I sat down and
looked at the thing Hopping around ,
and almost expected tt to walk up
and speak to me. I took the hook
out of its mouth and put it in a pail
of water , but it lived only two hours.
Why , I felt as though I were killing a
human being when I pulled the barb
out of its flesh. It looked so much
like a dying child that the captain ,
who is a trifle suporstious , wanted to
talk to it , and felt so sorry that ho
almost blubbered like a girl. I brought
it up to Cainden , intending to pre
serve it in alcohol , butBrookor wanted
it , and I guess he'll preserve it. "
The creature was brought to this
city yesterday afternoon for preserva
tion. 11 _ is the intention of the own
ers to plauo it on exhibition in sumo
Dr. 0. 13. Gross , of Camdcn , says
that the animal is the young male of
the sharp-nosed ray. This species , ho
declares , is very common on these
coasts , though the young are rarely
seen. The pectoral fins , which are
largo and fleshy , nro tied on the back
in suck a peculiar way ns to give color
to the inonnaid legend.

LEMON AND ORANGE MARKET
High Price * Paid for Xomcm Late
ly-Cnu o of the Advance'
How York Tribune.
There is a great Hcarcity of lemons
in the market at present ; tlio price has
been steadily advancing for some
weeks , until now it is from $10 to
811 fiO n box. Gnu of thu loading
auctioneers , who deals in lemons and
orange * , said Saturday : "Tlio lemon
market is the moat tickle in the
world. Upon the most careful esti
mate of the trade of previous years ,
ono can make no calculation for
suci'odintf year. I have benn
in the business for twenty-five
years , yet I cannot do it. Ono reason
for this is that the trade does not de
pend upon sailing vessels , as of old ,
when ono know just how many lemons
would bo shipped , and ono could make
arrangements to hold them for a
month. The cable has done away
with all that ; lemons cannot bo hold ,
there is a continual shipping , and no
end to it. Consequently they have to
110 disposed of immediately , and by
auction. Every box of lemons , and of
oranges , too , that comes hero is sold
at auction. This makes the market
very fickle and liable to suddnn fluc
" I ho heaviest bulk of lemons is re
ceived between December 1 and May
L. During that time this year the
rates wcnTvcry low , pi ices being from
? 1.50 to § 2 a box. All dealers lost
money and nil were discouraged. The
extreme hot weather in the west , the
.inusual hot weather here , and the
'oeling that there wax no USD storing
onions for an advance , owing to thu
conditions I first mentioned , led to
, he present state of affairs. Lemons
went up to $ f , then to 88 and § 10. 1
think no ono could give the precise
cason for this first jump in prices.
Then everybody said : 'Thoyro all
crazy and will all got stuck , ' but no
onu wan 'stuck. ' " The price went
straight ahead , until now it in $11.CO
> cr box for first-class lemons. The
vest is taking a great many , und thu
Sicily crop is over.
"The next crop will bo the Malaga ,
which is duo this week. So far as we
can toll , the market ia in good condi-
ion for tlio crop. But the present
> riees will not hold , as the Malaga
onion is inferior to the Sicily , being
mid and green and of thicker skin ;
t will tide us over , however , until
thu new Sicily lemon comes in in De
cember. The Malaga will probably
sell at § 5 a i ox. "
"What are the prospects for the
low Sicily crop ? "
"Thu quality is good and promises
well. When the now crop arrives thu
uarkct will bo 'relieved ' , but it is ini-
)03Eiblo to say anything , of its eflect
> n prices. " i
"Havo dealers madu largo profits in
; ho present rise ? "
"Immense profits have boon made
within the last fifty days , but not by
American dealers. Italian exporters
on the other side have madu tlio
money. The business , in fact , is
changing very much , and going into
; ho hands of Italian exporters. "
' 'Another reason for the present
scarcity is that people forget how
rapidly the country is growing and
; hey don't give sufficiently largo
orders. Where U0,000 boxe.s lasted a
nonth in olden times they now hist
only a week or less. I don't expect ,
such a state of things as this in ten
, 'earw again , yet it may comu in two.
L'o show how money is lost and made
n the trade , I knew of an Italian firm
that lost $10,000 early in the year
md made $50,000 in the risu in
Of oranges the dcalersoid : "Agood
narkut is expected , as the weather
was poor last winter in NorthernFlor-
dn and Louisiana. Owing to this
STe\v Orleans merchants have gone to
Southern Florida to Kucnru thu defi
ciency ; liunce wu expect high prices
'or Florida oranges andgood prices for
Jamaicas and "Vuluncias from Spain.
The Florida oranges owing to thu con-
, inued planting ot trees , will in tiniu
seriously interfere with thu foreign
, rude. In five years they will uu

Incidents of tLn Monrnltig 1 Now
If there can bo such a point us ln\
ury in Ki-icf , Now York attained it in
its display of iiiilt/nin of mourning ,
Probably $100.000 would noi cover
the expenditures for Wnclc ami white
cloth nsod in the decorations. The
public buildings and n large number
of private houses rciunin draped.
The proposal to give the goods to the
poor of this cily and the sullerors by
the Michigan lire hus not mot with
the response it deserves. Some
of the big dry-jjoods housvx
Iwvo taken down the oloths and
returned it to thuir stock. Tliuro was
much taste exhibited iu the displays.
Pictures of the lalo president were to
bo seen everywhere , and often they
wcro accompanied by appropriate
legends , The outward emblems of in
ward grief were not numerous on
Fifth avenue , but in the humblest
tenements of the city they were to bo
scon in profusion , and seine of them
seemed to have been made at thu sac-
rilico of a black garment.
You Leo , a Chinese laundrymiin iu
Ludlow street , had an engraving of the
Into president tucked up in front of his
hop surrounded with cnipe. Below
it isjthe following inscription , written
by Yeo Leo himself :
"The enemy shoot him and dead ho
were v nice inivti , The Ami-riwvn peo-
; ) le very sorry and pain on him. Now
ivory house linng up the black thijig
'iinural for him. Good man the peo-
lie obey him the name very fame for-
ver. Und man will bo burn of firo. "
An uptown florist had the presi-
lout's pietiire framed in flowers of the
uost beautiful and varied kind , with
dove resting upon the lop of the
rrame. Beneath were these lines :
'From scenes llku this C'oV.uuliU'd

'i-ipr. In one such window thu light-
y-clad lij uru of a trying imgul swung

a monument , boru the martyr's

vorkecl tit tliu city hall for four days
o drapu it , but made such poor work
if it that Imro Kiralfy was sent for
nd told to proceed without reference
o expense to make the decorations
ipon the building worthy of the city.
Tin ; city hall is a long , low white
narblo building , thu center of which
H higher than tlio wings at cither
idu. The space between thcso wings
s partially filled by broad steps , sur-
uouted by a portico , formed of six-
con columns , supporting a balcony.
'he viouof ( hi ) facadu from any
tandpoint presents at' least two sides
> f onu of the wings , onu side of the
ither and nearly all of thu control or
uain part of the structure. Thu.
vindows are numerous and aru
separated by single columns. The of-
uct of thu work may bo imagined
whun it is known that the .decorator
las covered the ontiru front with
ilauk , leaving only the whitu marble
viiidow-framus and tjiu windows them
selves exposed. By tacking light strips
of wood wherovur l-o intended to nail
he cloth , ho baa managed to plauo thu
tiaturial flat against thu stonu. Tlio
vholc of tlio first story
s thus rendered black , with thu
white arches over the windows and
; ho white capitals and bnses of the
lumerous columns to relieve it. Un
der each window is a black festoon
and over the windows the wholu cor-
n'co is but half covered with cloth.
iiut thu chief pains have been taken
with thu grand entrance , and huro so
nuch work has been done that the
smaller details pass unnoticed. The
'rout of every stop in the stair
case in covered with a band of black ,
and black is skillfully worked in with
he basu of each column , the columns
, heinselvps being all black , with fus-
OOIIB HO arranged between thorn that
) ho effect of a canopy is produced.
Dho balcony is hung with black , .re-
ioycd by shields containing white
itripes , and all over the artist bus
milt a smaller canopy of eight black
columns , in front of which is a largo
> ainting of the hi to president , and on
he top of all a broken ohaft artisti
cally draped. Behind all this , and
eeen through it all , thu marble seems
'ar ' whitur than before. Above these
lucofatiotis the gilt eagles 'in two
carved coats of arms hold broad shoots
of lihick in festoons , whitu strips of
> lnck reach down from ( lie roof be-
, weon thu uppermost windows.
Wis thorn ever a sad occasion with
out its gleam of humor ? Upon a secondhand
ond-hand clothing store there was a
auglmblu juxtaposition of signs. Bo-
nuath thu announcement " \Vo \ are
Hulling our untiro stock of suii'inor
clothinc off at less than cost , " Was the
sign "Wo mourn our loss. "
