Lightship No. 49, anchored off Cape
Charles at the mouth of Chesapeake bay,
has made a catch that ia puzzling the
naturalists who have seen It. It was a
trlplo catch, for the creature that Captain
William Moody brought up on his hook
had two sirall members of Its family at
tached to Its fins. Whether the trio are to
be classified ab flsh, reptile or animal Is a
point still awaiting decision, but all who
havo seen them agree that they are the
most hideous monstrosities ever given up
by the ocean's waters.
Time hangn heavy on the hands of the
lightship crew, obliged as they are to be
on station day In and day out for months'
at a time without changing their location,
and they frequently drop over n fishing lino
to rellovo the monotony. Captain Moody
Is considered one of tho expert anglers of
tho cruw, and generally baits his hook In
such a wny as to get something worth sav
ing. At times It Is a big codfish which
drifts down this way with the gulf stream
from the Hanks, and occasionally he pulls
up a shark and finishes him with tho har
poon kept handy for the purpose.' One
bright morning recently the captain put on
his hook a tempting chunk of fat pork and
cast It overboard, taking caro to put about
bIx Inches of steel chain between tho small
ropo used tor the lino and tho hook Itself,
llo then lighted his pipe and began to fix
somo rigging which needed better splicing.
An hour or so later ho thought he would
take a pull on the tackle nnd see If there
was anything at tho other end. Ho pulled
and felt a very energetic counter pull. Ho
took both hands and braced himself, but It
soemed ns If a ton of stone were on tho
"Boys, I've got a bite and It's n big one,"
he yelled to a group of tho sailors who
were playing cards a few feet away.
"Most llkoly another shark," remarked
one of them as he came to the captain's
Flmt (illmiiRP fif the Monatcr.
Together they managed to pull In tho lino
slowly, while tho rest of the men stood by
with harpoon and tackle. Presently there
loomed through tho water such a bead as
no man aboard had ever seen before. Orcat
goggling, ugly eyes projected from It, on
cither sldo of a blunt snout, and below war
a mouth, glistening with a doublo row of
teeth so formldablo that they might havo
put a shark to flight. Then, ns tho monster
slowly rose, two great fins, looking like the
wings of a bat, feebly beat about, project
ing from a thick, black, glistening body.
Finally, a long, ropelike tall appeared,
thrashing tho water Into foam. Tho men
stared with wonder nnd horror at the grisly
apparition. Then ono of them, with ten
derer nerves than his companions, yelled:
"Cut tho line."
"No," shouted Captain Moody: "that's my
devil and I'm going to have him aboard."
"He'll bo safer dead, then," said the man
with the harpoon, casting hiu weapon.
It penetrated the back, killing tho crea
ture almost instantly. After much difficulty
tho prey was hoisted aboard, when two tiny
replicas of it detached themselves from be
neath its folded flns and flopped about tho
deck, lashing their long tails. In a few
minutes they were dead and tho men then
sat about examining their catch. Tho largo
specimen wns a llttlo over four feet long
and was extremely heovy(of build. Its
mouth wa big enough to take in a small
dog. Its flns, which were attached to tho
body well down toward the tall, seemed to
be membraneous. Tho tall was splnellke
and terminated in what resembled tho
weapon of a stinging ray, suggesting a re
lationship to that family. Tho creature
seemed to bo built for rather sluggish
movement, but to be formidably equipped,
otherwise for a predatory career.
Tho llttlo ones were about a foot long,
and the fact that they wero folded under
tho fin of tho mother Is thought by somo
to lndlcato that tho creature Is a mammal
rathor than a true flsh. Tho catch was
mado In fifty feet of wator, with tho hook
a few feet above the bottom.

Captain Moody has had long experience
as a fisherman, as have several of his crew,
but nono, of them has over seen anything
like theso monsters Tho captain calls them
'sea devils," and has them on exhibition
at his homo In Baltimore, where they havo
boon viewed by many visitors, including- a
number of naturalists. No one has yet
been able to classify tho specimen. Tho
fishermen who havo scon it believe that
tho creature does not belong to tho order of
truo fishes, but is more of a reptllo or an
animal. Prof. II. K. Brooks of tho chair
of biology at John Hopkins university ia
of the opinion that It Is a species of stlnga
ree, or stinging ray. The naturo of tho tall
would Indicate this. Other observers are
inclined to classify It among sharks, bo-
causo of its mouth and teeth. Nothing
resembling it is round nmong tho Illustra
tions of American flsh Issued by the United
States government, nor in any other scien

A Kansas school board received tho fol
lowing letter the other day from ono of
the teachers: "I would like to havo th9
rofusal of the school as long as you aro
willing to hold It for me, though I can't
say positively that I will not teach, nor
positively that I will. If I am married, as
I think I will be, of course I will not want
th school. Ilut you know tho old story
about many a slip, and I would hate to be

Some of the tenures In Rnnlnnd arm vrpv

Making foudant Is tho londation of nil

the secret of making nil Canutes maue from
boiled sugar, It Is nocesiary to have a
knowledge of tho action of tho heat upon
Tho degrees of boiling sugar for con
combines Strength, Purity and Solubility. A breakfast
cupful of this delicious Cocoa costs less than one cent.
aom mi m grocery tiorc
fectioner's use are seven, no! Including the
first degree, which Is the reducing of sugar
and water to a syrup. These degrees are:
To thread, large and small, or pearl, large
and small; or blow; or feather, to ball,
largo and small; to crack, or to caramel.
Of these degrees the housekeeper em
ploys most frequently the syrup, tho thread,
the ball, the crack and caramel,
The proportion of sugar and water used
Is three nnd a half pounds of granulated
cane sugar and a pint mid a half of water.
Add the walcr to the tugar and stir over
the fire a few minutes until sugar Is dis
solved; remove tho paddli and be careful
not to disturb tho syrup while boiling.
Small crystals will form around the sides
of the saucepan; remove these with a
small piece of muslin wet In cold water,
but do not disturb the boiling syrup. If tho
syrup is to bo used for soft Icing test after
a few minutes' boiling by dipping in a
spoon: If, when drawing It out, n long
thread of the syrup will follow It Is ready
to pour into tho beaten whites of the eggs.
Hut for fondant It must continue to boll
until It will form n very soft ball when
rolled between wet fingers. This may seem
a severe test, but Is very harmless nnd
simple nnd the only one to Insure success.
Test for Kondnut,
Great caro must bo observed at this point
In order that tho syrup does not become
discolored, as it in rapidly reaching the
caramel degree nnd It pnsses quickly from
ono stngo to another. Havo a bowl of ice
water ready, hold tho thumb and two llrst
lingers In It until they nre thoroughly
chilled, then quickly slldo them Into tho
hot syrup at sldo of saucepan and as quickly
tako them out nnd dip Into tho leu water:
If, you can form a soft ball of syrup clinging
to the fingers It Is done. Havo a large
platter or marble slab brushed well with
oil to within two or thrco Inches of tho
edge; pour the syrup gently out onto this
to cool; do not disturb until you cnu muko
nn impression on tho syrup with your
finger; then, using nn oiled, wooden paddle,
stir the syrup rnpldly until It Is whito aud
stiff. Thn knead a few minutes llko dough;
placo on a dl&h and cover with a damp cloth
and Bet in u cool dry place until needed;
If it is to be used for dipping this can bo
dono at once; but if for cream fillings It
must stand until tho following day.
For strawberries in fondant, select large,
firm, ripe fruit; sco that they aro perfectly
free from cand nnd grit. If they must bo
washed, dry them thoroughly beforo dip
ping. Do not hull them. Melt enough fon
dant for dipping quantity of fruit desired,
by placing It In a small saucepan or cup
nnd melting it over boiling water, stirring
all tho time: tako up each berry by tho
stem and petals and dip Into tho fondnnt,
covering tho berry entirely; placo each
berry, ns soon ns covered, In n tiny paper
enso, unless they aro for decorating; then
place on their tips on oiled paper to dry.
Tho color shows through tho white fondant
and thoy aro pretty for a pink breakfast or
luncheon as well ns delicious to taste.
Cherries, sections of orange, whito grapes
and cubes of candled pineapple may be
treated In Bamo manner. Tho fondant may
bo colored, to carry out tho color schemo
used In tho decorations; but tho bright
colored fruits look best with tho pure white
Cilnec I'm It.
Tho syrup for dipping must be boiled
longer than for fondant and Is next to the
caramel degree. For this reason It must be
watched closely; test as for fondant, and
If tho sugnr hardens at once In Ice water
and breaks with n crackling nolso between
tho fingers It has reached tho proper point
and must be removed at onco from the fire
tho Instant it begins to turn straw color.
Another way to tost the syrup Is to dip the
point of a cold steel-bladed knife Into the
syrup, then into the Ice water, then place
between tho teeth and if It breaks brittle
without sticking or cracking It Is ready.
Set at once over hot water and commence
Cherries nnd grapes dip nicely on account
of their stems. Blanched and toasted al
monds may be dipped, also walnuts, chest
nuts, hazel nuts, etc. Orango and manda
rins glaces are nice, but must be carefully
handled bo as not to break tho skin of the
carpel, allowing thn Juice to escape. These
will not keep over twelvo hours.
After dipping, tho fruits can bo placed in
little paper cases or lay them on an oiled
wiro tray for the 6ugar to set and cool.
Nuts should bo dried Jn this way, as they
aro usually mixed with bonbons.
For making theso it Is best to have a
thick, well-seasoned board that will go Into
tho oven (It must not bo of pine, of courso):
covor this with thick well-glazed, white
