SometlroM » Trip to th« Gritnd Bank Ylold» » 8m»ll Furtuno That the element of luck has mim to do with the results of a trip to th banks after the voracious but often. elusive cod, and his cousin, the had dock, is an accepted fact- Izaak Wai ton novor know the danger of night spent on tho little chjp of a schoone on tho choppy, "crosscut" waves, an< amid tho howling gales, varied by fog almost as thick as cream cheese, whicl arc the normal conditions of "life on the ocoun wave" as seen by those whi go out in dories to string 1 nets or striv for the honor of being "high line" on f successful cruise. "A bare living and a dog's life," aptly describes the averag lot of a man who takes the chancus o an off-shore fishing trip, and even tui is made worse by the knowledge tha there are lots of dogs who live a fa easier life, have more comfortable homes, have plenty to eat and a "dry bunk" in which to sleep. Generally the fishing schooners arc worked on shares. The captain, mate and steward each receive a certain percentage of the catch, another portion is divided among' tho crew, and the owners, who pay the expenses o the trip, got the rest. The extent of the business may bc judged from the returns of the Gloueos tor (Mass.) fleet for the last season when li:>,350,000 pounds of fish wore landed, realizing »:i,067,02S on th wharves, or -nearly double that sura when salted There wore 455 vessels engaged, aggregating 32.000 tons, and employing 1 0,500 men. Of foreign salt 51,000,000 pounds were used in curing this catch, which fell below that of tho previous season. The business is full of risk, both foi life and fortune, and tho little New En gland town Is filled with tho widows and orphans of men who will novor re turn from the wild waste of tho At lantic over which they sailed in search of wealth. While the less of money is often great, there aro at times gooc profits made. In the last tivo years threo Gloucester schooners, which cost originally about $30,000, havo together stocked over $300,000, or paid for them selves ton times over, Ono of these, tho Edwin B. Holmes, of only seventy one tons, which was launched in 1886 at Essex, Mass., has stocked $105,550 for fishing on the George bank since she began operations. Another, the Horace B. Parker, of ninety-eight tons, and built at the same place in tho same year as the Holmes, has since banked nearly 8140,000 as the ,rosult of the vigorous pursuit of the haddock, while tho Edward A. Perkins, which is only three years old and measures ninety tons, has already cleared $07,000 in the halibut fishery. Tho famous old schooner-yacht Ambassadress, which was built by David Carll for tho Astors and sold to Nathaniel Thayer, of Boston, and was disposed of by him and turned into a fishing boat, recently landed at that port the largest and finest cargo of Newfoundland herring recorded tliere. She is, however, too large to bo worked at a profit in tho trade, her gross tonnage being 332.04, and sho will probably, it is announced, be sent to the West Indies ns n trader. Following tho Ambassadress came the Elslo M. Smith, a trim little 100-tonner, which landed 326,OB8 pounds of fish as the proceeds of one cruise. That there is a dark side to the fisherman's life is shown by tho story brought homo by tho survivors of the crew of the E. P. Boynton, which was wrecked on the Newfoundland coast last winter. These men, whoae sufferings and privations were extreme, lost two of their comrades, who escaped the perils of tho wreck only to bo frozen to deatli soon after reaching shore. Another example of fisherman's luck is shown by the record of the Loring B. Haskoll, a 00-tonnor, which sailed away in October last, and returned to port in February empty, with a talo of storm and disaster, and a largo bill c( expense for provisions and re-equipment—N. Y.

The following story is going tho rounds about Senator Joo Blackburn, originally told by Vice President Stov- enson at a dinner: In a Kentucky town where Joe was going to speak there was a hanging set for tho sumo afternoon. .Too's arrival was heralded abroad, and a large crowd was on hand to hear the words of wisdom and of eloquence which always flow from a Kentuckian's lips. Finally tho speaker arrived. Tlio hanging was a side show, and for the moment was forgotten in ;ho anxiety to hoar tho famous orator. But it was not forgotten long. Tho condemned man .suddenly interposed. "Mr. Hangman," ho said, "if I remember right, I was sentenced to bo hung, not to hear Joo Blackburn speak. I request that you go on with tho hang- ,ng."—Washington Times.^ ANIMAL EXTRACTS, 1'HIn'AIiEl) AMOBDINO TO THE lOKMtTLAfl OF DR. WILLIAM A- HAMMOND, AKD UNIIER HIS SUI-EJIVISIOH.

Marino architects and tho many interested in our now navy have con- torod their attention on torpedo boat No. 3 to be known as the Ericsson, nearmp completion in the yards of the Iowa iron works of this city. This interest is but natural when the fact is considered ; that although designated as No. 3, it is the first experiment in torpedo boat building" in this country worthy of tho uamo. The Gushing No. 1 is in no particular up to the standard, otter aft of the eaftfnos. They were built here under royalty, to tho English patentees, and are remarkable In more ways than one. The principle on which these boilers are constructed Is not new, but is seemingly carried to the limit. The flues or the tubes connecting the sections number in each boiler over twelve hundred, (jiving an enormous heating service, These are covered with a casing of magnesia, and galvanized steel, arid with these and the machinery in place and fuel in the bunkers tho little craft has a full cargo. Tho armament of the torpedo boat will consist almost wholly of the arrangements for using; 1 tho Whitehead torpedo. To repel boarding she will carry four one-pounders, rapid-firing guns, but her effectiveness is entirely in her power to reach a point close enough to tho enemy, fire her torpedo, and run away.

Sho will have a displacement of 120 ! tons, and, while like all of her class, j will sit low in the water. Yet, when | ready for sea, she will need about 4X j feet of water to safely navigate.

No greater care could possibly have been taken than has been lavished upon this vessel, every piece of material being subjected to a thorough and scientific inspection, and nothing else than apparent perfection was allowed to go. Her frames aro of steel and the plating of galvanized steel from three-sixteenths to one-fourth of an inch In thickness. The work in completing the hull has been slow on account of the excellence required, and, as finished, is pronounced a masterpiece by experts and government Inspectors. In no part of her construction is so much interest taken as in tho machinery. Bearing in mind thut tho speed requirement is twenty-four knots, it follows that tho propelling power must something more than ordinary, and It is doubtful if a finer set of engines k Qn tMs boat was ^ threo rs it bc . ^ ONE OP THE THOBNYCBAFT BOILEBS. ing tho first experience of tho Iowa iron works', whoso managers have worked in some particulars under a great disadvantage. Added to this came the strike at Homestead, from whence much of the material in tho construction of the boat was received. A strike at home also delayed the work, and for some months during the past winter nothing whatever was done, but the little craft is now nearing 1 completion. The finishing touches are being put on both hull and machinery, and it ie expected that in a few days she will be ready to slide into tho Mississippi, It will take some days to prepare for her trip to the sea, which promises to bo not only interesting to those navigating her, but to tho people along the Mississippi river, this probably being the only opportunity they will ever have of seeing a real torpedo boat.

Tho Wuy Out of n Vnry Dlsagrcoublc St«tt of Affairs. However advanced tho world may be said to bc, however quickly \vu may grasp and adopt now fads, fancies and notions, and however much we may think we havo improved upon old times and former usages, there are yet a grunt many things that are susceptible of decided betterment. Among these tho management of household airairs stands out prominently, especially that phase of it that involves the financial understanding between the husband and the wile. For a great many yeai-s it was thought that women wore not capable of manag-infr their domestic concerns as far as money matters went. There was, to an extent, some show of reason in this idea, and in some instances j there is yet, but, as a rule, tho existing state of tilings is just about as bad as civilized people are capable of making- it. A little analysis of the situation will readily discover why this is so. A man of more or less mature years, who has made or is making a competence or a good living, marries a young 1 woman, sometimes scarcely more than a child. Sho has been in school almost all of her life, and lias never assumed any responsibility in money matters- other than to be expected to make her allowance buy candy and other petty luxuries. If the money were all gone sho went without confectionery and trinkets until the next time, and it was just as well, perhaps better. This constituted her limit of financial experience. Her bills were paid, her necessities provided for, incidentals were looked after, and shortage was made up. Whatever sho wanted in excess of this sho coaxed or cried for until sho got it, or maybe was sulky, sullen or disobliging until the coveted article was forthcoming as the easiest way out of the unpleasant state of affairs. Fairly launched upon the sea of married life, that condition in which young people feel at liberty to do as they like, her natural inclinations, untrained and unguided in the bud, blossom out into extravagant and unreasonable demands, and feeling a perfect right to call for whatever she desires, trouble comes sometimes suddenly and without warning. It is safe to say that money matters are responsible for more domestic infelicities than all other causes combined. Tho man is not long in discovering that his wife manages badly, and he tightens tho purse-strings. Instead of carefully instructing her in the use of this necessity of life, he becomes arbitrary am often unreasonable, insisting, in raanj cases, that all articles shall bo bough on credit and tho bills sent to him tc overlook. There are few things in tho worl more annoying than a systematic e; pionage of this sort, and the knowl edge that oven tho most trivial pur chaso has to bo accounted for. It i humiliating and puts the mistress o tho house on the level of an irrcsponsi ble child. How much better it woul be to arrange at tho outset some fixec method in which forbearance on both sides form an important part. lion orablc, straightforward, honest men have very little reason to fear th knowledge which their wives may have of'their business. It is only when illegitimate pleasures and indulgences are to bc provided for that there is any occasion for such socrccy. A woman who is confided in nnc trusted will, as a rule, feel quite as much pride in and interest for her husband's prosperity as he himself does, and it is almost always possible, when business is depressed, for a well-informed woman to curtail expanses and suit her demands to tho exigencies of the situation. But whore there is no understanding or confidence, where money is literally doled out, and that, too, in the most grudging manner, a feeling of resentment springs up, and the idoa prevails that there must bo just so much contention anyway in order to get what is required. Under such circumstances there is no wonder if the demands aro excessive and infelicities follow fast upon one another's heels. Tho money question, more than any other, is responsible for the reluctance of women to marry and their ambition to provide a competence for themselves. —N. S. Stowoll, in N. Y. Ledger.

World. r Where Disease Is Bred. When a sewer is clogged or choked tip the accumulations poison the atmosphere in. its vicinity and bring about the conditions that breed disease. We all know that in time of pestilence every precaution is taken, not only to keep the sewers free and open, but even to remove all decaying matter from the community. The danger of infection is thus minimized. How few of us who pay taxes for the maintenance of saniuiry bureaus for the public health think of an equal requirement for our individual welfare. The alimentary canal is the great sewer of the human system. When that is-dammed up conditions are generated which invite fevers and such diseases as our nature inclines to. Constipation is a. clogging of the natural drains, and nearly evcrjthinp we suffer from follows this condition. It will not do merely to clear the drains from time to time. We must repair and improve the working power of the machinery whose function jt is to perform, this work.
