of these creatures are all extremely
curious, and at i well described by
Pr. full:
Generally at Kelt.
The most frequent position assumed
is a state of rest, will) the tail wound
arourd the stem of a plant or other
substance, and the body carried nearly
.or quite erect but notwithstand
ing the apparent rigidity of its cm-rass-like
body armor, almost everv
other attitude consistent with such
form can he assumed. The body
can he thrown outward or downward
t various angles, the tail being wound
around a plant in. a double coil. Once
in a while one eve may roll tow aid
the observer, while the other may
he passive or look backward or even
in the opposite direction. The liltle
fish can move its eyes independently
of each other, and in entirely difier
ent wavs. A comical effect is pro
duced by the manner in which these
fishes peer at some objects, reminding
one of a very near-sighted person.
Releasing ilscll from its support
it can progress slowh, still in a ver
tical position, its tail curved inward,
its dorsal fin rapidly undulating, re
minding one of a screw propeller, and
' with its pectoral fins vibrating in bar
tnonv. i
Incased as it is in an almost in
flexible coat of mail, progression can
not be effected by lateral flexion o
the body as in ordinary fishes, and
with the flexion in a vertical direc
tion, is limited.
Has Gas Bladder.
With such limited powers of pro
gression a nice adjustment of organs
is necessary. One method is said to
use an air bladder, comparatively
large and always distended by a
quantity of gas so exactly in harmony
with the specific gravity of the body
that this entire body is a hydrostatic
apparatus of extreme sensibility.
A proof of this is that if a single bub
ble of gas no larger than the head
of a verv small pin be extracted,
the fish immediately loses its equili
brium and sinks to the bottom, on
which it must crawl until the wound
has been cicatriied and a new supply
of gas secreted bv the internal mem
brane of the bladder. It is well
known that the eggs of hippocampus
are taken care of by the male in an
abdominal sac or pouch. , ,
The name hippocampus is derived
from the Creek wrils, hippos, signi
fying horse, and kamnos or kampe. a
caterpillar. And, in (act, the head is
shaped and the neck arched like
those of a horse, while the body or
tail resembles a caterpillar.
Not Good for Food.
One sixteenth century writer
states that: Its sire does not exceed
a finger's length; it has a tough and
rugose skin, and neither man nor fish
of other kind esteem it as food. In
color it is sometimes dark; in other
cases white. It bears a small fin, a
little elevated along the back, and
another small one on the neck, where
it joins the head. The mouth is small
and tubiform. Dead or dried speci
mens have the tail coiled inward, ike
that of a chameleon; it is furnished
with small, blunt prickles, and is of
quadrangular section. The spinous
projections arise from transverse
folds which cross the fail.
Certain authors profess that the
ashes of hippocampus, when commin
gled with liquid pitch, til o or 01
or sweet majoram. cure baldness and
pain in the sides. An application of
oil of roses into which the live ani
mal has been dipped and killed is an
efficacious remedy for chills and
Medicinal Properties.

medicinal properties of hippocampus,

"Clown Hair to Be Erected Here is
Or.e of 24 Ringling Canvas Palaces
A wonderful house is soon to be
erected here. It will be built of can
vas and the roof will be held sky
ward by big red and blue poles as
large as trees in the woods. At the
very top of one of these poles will be
a flag bearing the words, "Clown
Hall." It's the traveling home of the
Kingling Brothers1 army of jesters.
Besides that which is made of can
vas. there is still another "Clown
Hall." This second home is located
at the circus winter quarters in Bar
ahoo. Wis. Here it is that the funny
chaps gather after the big show has
completed its tour, to plan their
grotesque costume, rehearse a world
of comicalities, rig up big wooden
cannons, air-ships and whatnot, and
to think out new frolics and jokes of
every kind. Could the thousands
upon thousands of children who
laugh with these Merry Andrews
from April until November but creep
up to the windows of the snow-covered
"Hall" in llaraboo on a Decem
ber day and peek inside, they would
surely think that they had discovered
old Santy's work shop. For they
would see big and little men busily
engaged making all sorts of gaily
painted carls and wagons, queer look
ing guns that shoot nothing more
dangerous than water, and no end of
laughable masks and faces. Ami
nearby, in big buildings frescoed with
icicles, hut kept very warm within,
they would catch glimpses of spotted
ponies and Shellands. blinking mon
keys, knowing dogs, shaggy bears and
even baby elephants going round and
round in big. broad rings or mounted
on stages all very attentive tu their
score of trainers and making ready
for the long journey which always
begins in the springtime. This tour
has now begun and clowns and ani
mals and all the rest of the wonders
of Spaugleland will be here when the
circus comes to Omaha at Twenty
first and Paul streets, on Monday,
August 2H.

Organized Waiters
Refuse to Serve
Lunch for Hughes
San Francisco, Aug. 19. Union
waiters refused today to serve a
luncheon given to Charles F.. Hughes,
republican presidential candidate, at
the San Francisco Commercial club
because the club exhibits in its win
dows an open shop card as part of
a fight being made here by the Cham
ber of Commerce upon the closed
shop. For the Hughes luncheon a
request was sent by the dub manage
ment to the waiters' union asking
for sixty-five waiters after the union
officials had protested to Francis X.
Keesling, chairman of the republican
state central committee, against din
ing the candidate in an open shop
The Waiters' association backed up
the action of the local waiters and
pickets were sent to the Commercial
club entrance to warn union waiters
away. Culinary workers struck sev
eral weeks ago for shorter hours and
the Restaurant Men's association im
mediately declared an open shop re-
gimc. v.
One of the large downtown open
shop cafes locked its doors over the
lunch hour and sent its entire crew
to the relief of the Hughes luncheon.
