I was once invited, says a writer In the San Francisco Call, to go fishing with a friend of geological leanings who assured me that we would take some nsh that would surprise me in the matter of weight. I joined him early in the morning and found to my aston- ment that ho was equipped with a pickax and shovel in place of a split bam- hoo, and Instead of entering the water wo climbed a high mountain in the vicinity and fished with the tools, digging out some fine specimens of fossil fish, that in the long walk home more than equaled my expectations in the way of weight. ii.Hhlr.orcoi-i.oriUloii It WIIH wl.,« (lellnnufint .'"' . •„,,„.,, rjn ' " T lio l«t» l:w Is »[ siu-h ll • cion o( Uelli.iii.e.it Uixes, however t^urer Is.on,,,,!,,,,, by h.w to c^; thy s K^»^K^rti^SSKj|l - piirtu-iilnrly notillwl that nil I h« roii x l.s u .ut nu o County ortltir!i wll , ste 0rU(!r!( ' V,UtTtCOI,AR ATTKNTION. .bould exun.in, U ol r r.-c.-lpts - all of your reul estate, the tax Is not p;iW. „ Lo«nn,Hport, Intl., Jan. 2, e tax Is not p;i. ^ , BENJAMIN F.KBEbL-NG, Treasurer Cuss County, Hid.

Mrs. Domiuls long held a prominent o in Honolulu society, associating youth with tho more cultivated of tho capital, among whom, like 'Queen Emma nnd the late Princess Pauohi Bishop, of honored memory, she 'received her early education. She lias n 'perfect use of English, a good literary and an especially good musical culture. Her manner is peouliary winning, her 'hearing noble and becoming, tho hitter a characteristic of Hawaiian 'rovaltv. Few persons were ever more stately and impressive than many of tho royal chiefs could be upon occasion, • Besides a small private fortune, tho princess for many years enjoyed a stipend of 50,000. As queen she received ?SO,000 per annum. A sumptuous palace was also maintained for the sovereign's use. Hesides all this was the life use of the income of the crown lauds, which amounted during her reign to perhaps ?T3,000 per year. These provisions woro then regarded 'as ample for purposes of royal state hospitality in so small a kingdom, al. though Kins Kalakaua could never Wfcu both ends meet any more than •could his admired friend, tho prince of Wales. . . '• In religious affiliation Liliuokalam continued to adhere to the persuasion 'of the earlier generations of chiefs, declining to follow Queen Emma nnd Kin"- Ixalnkaua in going to Anglican 'fellowship.

FOES AND FRIENDS. .Bocretnry IIorbirL Uonlrnd to Ileward tho nlnn Who Cnpturetl Him. When Secretary of tho Navy Herbert was a confederate colonel his life was saved at the battle of Seven Pines by a Maine soldier, who prevented a revengeful comrade from running his bayonet through the breast of the Alabama oflleer, who had been wounded and had fallen from his ballet-riddled horse. When Mr. Herbert was a member of congress, says a Washington correspondent of the New York Sun, he endeavored unsuccessfully to learn from his colleagues in the 'Maine delegation the name of his preserver. After ho became secretary of tho navy he received a letter from a man in California aslcing if he was the Col. Herbert at the battle of Seven P;nos. SISCKETABV IIKUHEr.T. The writer of tho letter was Jonathan Newcomc, and he said he was one of the Maine soldiers who participated in the capture. Secretary Herbert, in answering tho letter, made an appointment to meet the man in California. Some time after this the secretary went to California to visit the navy yard, and there met his Maine soldier. He found that the man had been at the front in the attack and had taken him to the rear as a prisoner but it was not the man who had saved his life. His preserver, the sergeant, had been killed at Gettysburg, and the search for him was ended. Secretary Herbert was deprived of the opportunity of showing 1 his gratitude to the principal, but he did the next best thing- by extending it to one survivor of that little group, whom ho found. The man was a ship calkcr, who had drifted from Maine to the Pacific coast, and was poor and out of employment. The order of the secretary of the navy applying the civil service yules to navy yards was in force, but it was a rule made by an order nnd not by law. Although it was the policy of the department, and insisted upon by the president, that there should be no exception to this rule, the secretary suspended it long .enough to give this man work in the yard at his trade, and he gave directions that as loug as there was a ship or a boat in the navy yard to be calked the old Maine soldier should have work.

"Xone of l your business." man as "surprising, but whaling in a mountain range, four or five thousand feet above the sea, seems more remarkable and can be enjoyed by the earnest seeker after novelties. Not long since in cutting through some of the streets of Los Angeles, the laborers came upon the skeleton of a whale, its gigantic bones reaching awnybenea.thahou.se, showing that here at one time the ocean, that is now twenty miles away, rolled and the largest of living animals swam. A most remarkable sight was that seen in the mountain north of Los Angeles some years ago. A prospector in walking in the range in search of gold was suddenly amazed at seeing a landslide had exposed tbe bones of a gifantic animal. One of the most remarkable whales for its size was discovered in the flank of tho Monto Pulgnasco, one of the Ap- pennines. It was 1,200 feet from the base of the mountain and beneath a deposit of 000 feet, suggestive of tho enormous time that has elapsed since tho whalo swam in its native element. It had died and dropped to the bottom, tho bones lying there some time, as shown by oyster shells attached to tho vertebra. Then came the tremendous upheaval that raised the oo/,c and ita contents high in the air, forcing the water away. Another skeleton was found 1,200"feet beneath the summit of the same mountain. One of the most rcmarkablo occurrences relating to whales on dry land The Scotch Clty'« Method of Handling Fourteen Hundred-Men. — The Glasgow police force is a fine and well-disciplined body of nearly 1,400 men. Size and strength have been counted prune qualifications in their selection, and their average height is just under 6 feet Their average age is 34, and their average length of service is ten years. They are organized under a chief constable, ten superintendents, and twenty-eight lieutenants, with a number of inspectors and sergeants in Immediate command of the patrolmen, or ordinary constables. A majority of the men are Highlanders. They are of excellent personal character as a rule, 1 ind very faithful in the performance of e ' routine duties.

Whuo lyin" near a c'lilfof ice, SOO. feet or more in height, he saw avast berg some l.SUO feet in length and 100 feet in height break off from the ice cliff and fall with 11 terrific concussion into the water. When the berg assumed : .ts level the observers saw, to their astonishment, protruding from the ice :i huge whale of the sulphur-bottom variety. It was over 200 feet above the masthead of the ship, standing out in bold relief, presenting a marvelous spectacle and' arousing much comment among the superstitious sailors, who considered it little, less than a miracle that a whale should be seen in such a position. The whale had in some way been imprisoned- in Wio berg, and was frozen solid, a portion breaking off and falling, which the whalers secured. How old the specimen was they could form no idea.. Mammoth meat lias been preserved this way for thousands of years, and it was assumed that the wha'lc was very old. The flesh was so perfectly preserved that the men fried out eight or ten barrels of oil from it, and the birds, bears ancL-othcr animals fed for a long time on its remains, which were left on the ice. Some whalers found the skeleton and some of the flesh of a 1-ii-n-o v.-hale on Ragged island 00 feet or more from high-water mark, and a mile and a half from the water. It is easy to understand how large whales arc "now resting on the summits of mountains where the earth has been thrown up in huge ridges and the sea turned back, but bow whales in the Oesh • could be conveyed there was a puzzle to many. It is, however, easily accounted for. Thus, the ship Sheerwatcr sighted in the Antarctic waters a large berg in which, '..000 feet from the water, was a whale.near- ly nil of its body standing out in bold rei'ief. The explanation was that about a certain island near the south pole a wall of ice had formed, down upon which snow from the neighboring cliffs hud blown and accumulated, pushing 1 e ice down deeper and d«per. until finallv. by sinking, it was ICO or '-'00 feet thick. Onto tins submerged ice Geld a lar-c whale was blown or washed, becoming encased in ice and slowly frozen iii- Finally an off-shore gale detached the ice-field and it blew off as a berg and broke up. The Sower portion melted, and finally the ice tipped over and the embedded whale was carried -200 or SOO feet beneath the surface. , By melting and other losses the berg i again turned, and the great ice raoun- tain was soca risitifr ervjdly in the air ind distrust that one hears in any American city are unknown in Glasgow. The chief seems to use his own Mscretion very largely in the selection of new men, and there is no ordeal of sompctitive examination to be passed. The selection of the chief is made by the council on recommendation of the :ominittee, and vacancies in the other Dffices are usually filled by promotion. From top to bottom, the police service ;omm:«Kls admiration and confidence. The police courts belong to this department. Justice is dispensed by the lord provost, and by tlioso members of the council, tun in number, who have been set aside by their Jellowsas bailies or magistratcs/They arrange a scheme of rotation, and are assisted by assessors, these being practicing lawyers who are paid for advising the citizen magistrates on points of law. Hie magistrates themselves are, of course, not paid; but in order somewhat to lighten their labors, a stipendiary magistrate, or salaried police judge, is employed at $5,000 a year, who sits constantly in the central district ana disposes of a large share of the business. Tho general police government of the city also employs a law officer or attorney known as "the "procurator fiscal,' 1 who conducts prosecutions, when necessary, in the enforcement of the sanitary and other statutes and regulations administered by the council in its capacity as a police board. Half the expense of police-force salaries and clothing Is met by a government grant, as for all other municipal corporations in the kingdom, the maintenance of order being in theory and origin a general rather than a local function. The net charge of the police force upon the local rates is only'about S250.000. Glasgow has adopted the plan of building very commodious police- station establishments, in which are sleeping rooms, kitchens and mess rooms for the unmarried members of the force, llctiririg pensions arc allowed, nnd everything possible is done by the municipality to promote a high standard of personal character and a strong- sense of fidelity among ^the men charged with keeping the city's peace and order. The advantage of abundant illumination at night as a police Pleasure seems to me to bo appreciated in d:\sg-ow as in few other cities. There is nothing very noteworthy about the gaslights along all the public streets, unless the commendable' clearness with which street names are painted upon the four sides of the corner lamps as well as •upon the corner buildingsshonld merit a passing compliment; but very notable and unusual is the illumination by the authorities not only of all private streets and courts, but also of all common stairs. The cost of gas and wages of lightersforilluminating tliecommon stairs alonu are greater than the same items of expense for lighting all the public streets of the city. A part o£ the extra outlay is recovered by special assessments, but a con- siclcrable'roargin is a charge upon the general rates. Thus it cost for the year 1SS7-SS to light private streets and courts about 521,200, of which S12.:;00 was collected bv a special assessment of 53.75 per lamp, leaving about 59.000 to be paid from the treasury. . The expense of lighting common stairs was 500,500, of which S.1G,SOO was recovered fro'iii owners by an assessment of S2.50 per light, leaving the city nearly &10.000 to pay. The net cost to the city of 'the street lighting department proper, including the two services just mentioned, but including cost of superintendence and central oftices that pertain to the three services, was less than §100,000. The sums that owners pay the city for lighting courts and. stairs are pet- haps'more than they would pay for insufficient illumination if the matter wove left in their hands. The excess paid by the city in order to secure proper lighting should be ivgnrded, like the police force and the street lamps, as a legitimate outlay for public protection, convenience and order. As the chief of police lias remarked to me, each lamp is as good as an additional constable. The statistics of apprehensions and convictions for crime show a remarkable increase in proportion to the number of crimes reported since the Improvement trust and the stair- lighting have opened up the many once dark and almost inaccessible ren- dezvouses of thieves and criminals, while tho total amount of serious crime has steadily diminished in proportion to the population.—"Municipal Government in Ureat Britain."' —A wise and holy rule for our neighbor's faults is tnis: To speak of them to God,.and forget bef«ra men.— Massillon.
