Jonot of the An Interesting Paper Published In iheFUh CommliHlonet'M Report. The following is from a paper by Slate Fish Commissioner Philip H. Ktrsch entitled "A report upon explorations made in Eel river basin in the Northeastern part of Indiana in the,summer of 1892" and published in the biennial report of the State Fish Commissioner recently Issued. EEL KIVEK SYSTEM. Eel river, with its tributaries drains a scope of country In North, eastern Indiana lying between the basin of tLe Wabash river on the southeast, and that of the Tlppe- canoe river on the northwest, and extending from St. Joseph river basin, near Fort Wayne to Logansport. This river basin has an average width of about'18 miles and a length of 72 miles. The surface ol the region through which it flows is generally rolling, and everywhere covered with glacial drift except in a limited area near Logansport where bed rock is exposed. j The moan tempcrative at Columbia City for a period of six years waa 49.5 degrees. The highest temperature at this place in the summer of 1892 was 94 degrees; and the lowest temperature the past winter waa on January 15,- when the thermometer stood at 17 degrees below zero. During the winter of 1892 93, all the streams and lakes were frozen over, and on quiet waters the Ice reached a thickness of about two feet. The ice left Blue river during the second week of March. The mean annual rainfall at Columbia City for a period of six years was 35.67 incues. The amount of snowfall during the past winter was 4 feet 8 inches. This was greater than for any winter during the eight proceeding years. The bottom lands along the streams are 1 mostly covered with furests of oat, olm, maple, beach, hickory and sycamore. Occasionally, aloog their up. per courses, the streams are skirted with willows and a thick growth of underbrush. Too wa'er in the lakes and streams is rather clear, and where; there is sufficient depih j an abundance of Csh is found. These wa'ers need not be stocked with nsw kinds of fish. They already contain come of tbe finest, game and fooa- Sshes foucd anywhere. Large numbers of crawfish, mussels and various kinds of water weeds are found here. The summit north of Wallen, in Allen county,.is probably the highest Doiot from which water flows into Eel river. This point hai an elevation above sea level of $87 feet. Eel river at Logansport, where it empties Into toe ( Wabast> river, has an altitude '' of 583 feet. The river has. therefore, a fall of 304 feet in the total length of 72 miles, or about 4 feet 2 inches to the mile The channel of Eel river at North Manchester has an attitude of 721 feet and the stream from this point to its moulh. a diatanca of 36 miles, has a fall of 138 feet or, 3 feet 10 Inches to the mile. In tbe upper 86 miles of tbecoaree.-Eel river has a fall of about 4 feet 7 Inches to the mire. At Its mouth Eel rf»er hM * width of 447 leet; the Not Samples! Of what you don't want but a full stock of Desirable Shoes At Wf\LKER & Rf\UOH. Where quality is our first object at prices to make them GO. before receiving Eol river is 507 feet, wide; and the width of the Wabash mmediately below the junction of the two rivers is 527 feet. The upper 8 or 10 miles of Ee' river was formerly very crooked and flowed through low, swampy lande, but within the past three years the chan- el has been dredged and straightened, n this way redeeming much valuable and. The stream is now shallow, ith but few deep holes for fish. The iver throughout the remainder if the course Is crooked, and tbe bottom of the channel s of sand and gravel, rarely covered with rocks There are many eep boles and many gravelly pools with patches of water •eeds. From 'Adamsboro to ogansport, a distance of 6 miles, the tream has cut its bed in solid limo- tone (Devonian of the Upper Helder- erg Group), and has formed many road ahoals with numerous potholes, nd many broad stretches filled with Igae and water weeds. There are 14 dams on .Eol river, about which good game and food fishes aro abundant. AN ACTOR'S AFFLICTION. At the Opora Ilounn. The Huntley Bixby dramatic com. pany gave a pleasing performBnco of a drama entitled, "Dens and Palaces " at the opera house last night. The play contains a number of strong situations, and the characters were all well taken. James Painter was presented last night with a center table. ••The Siranglers of Paris" will be given tonight by thle excellent low priced company. There will bo a matinee on Saturday. A Correction. The statement in the Journal of Thursday, thai a warrant had been issued for Lewis W. Smith, on an affi davit filed by Ash Crook charging malicious trespass, was incorrect. No such warrant was issued, although Smith states that Crook attempted to bring about his arrest. Mr. Smith appeared before the grand jury yes terday and told his story of the trouble. » Problem.

Hi* proportion WM not A> Announced It Cnuvrd the M»nac*r In Oie early "stock" days of Washington, before tbe starring system wa* 1 in vogue, it often happened that soirw bibulous member of tli« company soug-bt surcease of sorrow in the flowing bowl, says the Washing-tou Post. Salaries had not readied that fabulous outline which now prevails, and the. ghost did not always walk, :ind therefore, there was always more or les» sorrow to be appeased in the popular tap rooms about town where the "profession" congregated. It happened on, one occasion that a too .liberal indulgence had rendered bors de combat on* of the leading members of the company, who is still a prominent and popular actor to-day. It was not the first time that he had been discovered in a. helpless condition just as the curtain' was about to g-o up, but lie \vas cast for a leading- part on this particular nig-bt, and there was great excitement on the stage.. It was decided to .substitute another bill, and the question novr turned on the nature of the explanation to be made t.o the waiting audience. "Announce that Air. Brown has hai a sudden attack of cholera morbus or bowel complaint," said the distressed manager of the theater to the stag-o manager. . This worthy was a heavy-voiced individual with a strong- Dublin accent, and a Celtic temperament which inclined to the humorous, lie made hi*: way before the curtain, bowed, and in his deep, rolling- voice addrcsed the- audience as follows: "Ladies and Gentlemen: I regret to announce that the management is ; obliged to change the bill to-night,; owing to Mr. Brown, who has ha<l a severe attack of bowl complaint." The audience caught the spirit of the. joke, and, amid general laughter, sctr tied down to the enjoyment of. the performance. MOON MYTHS. The Satellite no Object of Worship »n« Superstition ID Nearly All NiUon*. The moon has been worshiped among- nearly all the nations of the world from time immemorial; indeed, her cult 1)35 'been asserted to be much older established than sun-worship, says .All the Year Round. T3)C Peruvian peasant hurries home out of the old moonshine, afraid of the stern eyes of Mama Quilla. and tho Egyptian fellah lounges across tbo sands where the sphinx' shadow lies black at his feet, with a prayer on his lips or in his heart to Thoth—Thoth, the Master of \Visdum, the Lord of the, Ibis, in whose absence the fair hind of Kehm has bo^n brought down very low. Swabian girls still refuse to spin by moonlight., "lest, they would auger, Her." they say, vaguely, and in Germany children firmly believe in ilorsel or liolda, whose boat is the moon, whose flower is the llax anil whow:_ delight, is to reward industrious little maidens. D:tntc makes tliu man in the moon Cain: in ICirypt h« is Horns, hold to tho breast of Isis, his mother and the moon. In Rautum the man in tbe moon is a giant, who at flowing tide stops to pour '.vnu-r on the earth am! a.t ebb tide stands upright in order that tbe waters may subside. A curious eastern fancy is that the figure in the moou is tbat of the pattern wife, Jna. who weaves the clouds into white doth, and who, after the lapse of manv vcars. sent her mortal husband back to earth by the rainbow bridge in. order that death rois'lit not defile her heavenly home. The cat and the panther are both connected with the nioon ia some vague, occult fashion; indeed, in. Australia the moon is represented as » native cat and also in Egypt. In Chin* the celestials say tbat there is a frog is. __ ^hosed
