The Eskimo, like "tho oriliiiary ciwelU-r in America, cats until he is satisfied, but, tlwre is this difUerence, that he is never satisfied while a shred of his fo;ust. remains uncousimiod.

And after all that he does not suffer from indigestion. He can make a good meal olf the flesh and skin of the walrus, provision so hard nnd gritty that in eiiHiiig up th« nnimal the knife must be, continually shurpciiccl.

Blnckford, formerly s.tate fish commissioner, to n reporter for the New Yorfc Times, "I certainly do. Of course, I don't believe in all the details of. sea serpents ns seen nt the summer hotels, I do believe there are huge marine monsters which appear like serpents, nnd cause these tales about sea serpents to be told." "How is it that none of these has ever been captured?" "Their enormous size nnd swiftness, their extraordinary powers, n-nd the fact that they' are shy nnd seldom appear." "Why are their bodies not cast ashore?" "They ore probably deep-sea awell- ers. The bodies of the deep-sea fish are not cast ashore, except on rnre ami abnormal occasions. For instance, 15 years ago about 1,000,000 deep-sea fish were found floating: dead on the surface Of the ocean. It was supposed that a submarine explosion had lulled them. Deep-sea fish cannot petto the surface under ordinary conditions, or, if they do, they cannot get down again." "Wouldn't that keep the sea serpent up if he once came up?" "Xot necessarily. He may be constructed on a different plan. I think the sea serpent is a. survival of the great reptiles of the Plcsiosaurus species. It is quite possible that, though a dweller of the deep, -he may be able to come to the surface of tbe sen. and go down again at his pleasure." THE VALUE OF A Cueful Article to Always L thn Hon>«. The women of Holland and Belgium, .who make their linen'so beautifully white, use refined borax instead of washing soda in the proportion of one large handful of borax powder, to about ton gallons of'boiling water. Thus they save in soap nearly half. Its effect is to soften the hardest water, and, therefore, it should be kept on every toilet, table. It is good for cleansing the hair, is-an excellent dentifrice; combined with tartaric acid and bicarbonate of soda it is » cooling- beverage. Good tea cannot be mode with hard water, but nil water may be made soft'by adding a teaupoonlul o« borax powder to an ordinary-sized kettle of water, in which it should boil. Thcsavinff in the quantity of tea used will be one-fifth. .Gr»rtln« Hair.
