Sometime* n Mlli> In Length, Strotclieu Alone on the lioStom. Trawl lines, says the Kew York Sua are laid along the bottom and l?cpt in position by an' anchor at caeh end. .They are usually set for codfish or haddock. They may be from S50 to 500 feel long. Hooks on very short pieces oi line, so that they remain close to tho bottom, are placed six foct apart along tho trawl line. On each of these short lines, to keep the hook afloat, there is a cork, which is held in place by a kaot in the line above and below. At each end a line runs up to tho surface of the water, where a buoy is attached to it. By means of these bnoys the fisherman ia enabled to identify and locate his trawl lines when ho goes to take them up. In picking up trawl lines two men start at one end in a dory. When they have pulled up one anchor and ha-vc got one end of the line one man pulls the dory along over it, while the other picks the lino tip and takes off the fish. Then tho lino is reset or taken back to the fishing vessel. Sometimes tran-l lines are joined together end to end, making practically A SECTION OF A IT-AWL I.IXE. single linos of great length; in this manner there are sometimes laid lines a mile long. Sometimes in bad weather trawl lines arc laid out from the fishing vessel in lines like the ribs of a fan, lessening the dangers incident to taking them up hy reducing as far as possible the distance from the vessel, Ijurfrent Crons In tlio World.

Three hnudrcd and fourteen years ago the celebrated Sir Francis Drake lauded in this bay. and his chaplain, Francis Fletcher by name, pn-ached the very first English sermon ever heard in that region. To commemorate this event .Bishop Nichols, of California, and the late George \V. Childs caused a large stone cross 'to be erected ou the spot, a cliff standing three hundred feet abort- the sea. The cross is fifty-seven feet high, of blue sandstone: several of the stones in it are larger tban the largest stone in the pyramid of Cheops, This splendid monument can he seen far and wide and is literally a sermon in stone.

ERIE MEDICAL CO,, Buffalo, N.Y. and prosaic poesy is that line of Tennyson: "In t.'ae spring a young man's- fancy Lightly turns to thoughts at lovo." There are young- nion and maidens everywhere, who entertain all of tho old-world ideas, liavo faith in ancienl omens, have dread of certain phases 01 the moon, and who name, t.hu day and date of their nuptials according- to crude and barbaric precedents. For example, one of the most beautiful and vivacious young ladies in wealthy and fashionable northwest Washing-ton, who is to be married next week, tells a story about her engagement which points a moral in matrimonial philosophy. She says: "When Mr. R. asked mo point blank t,o name the day, I put my hands on his shoulders, and said: " 'Monday for wealth, Tuosfluy for health, Wednesday, tho best day of all; Thursday for crosses, Friday for losses, Saturday, no day at all.' "He said Wednesday should be the day, and I thought Tuesday, for health would be tho best, but we finally compromised on Monday for wealth. Lovo in a cottag-e without wealth is not desirable nowadays." So she'followed the dictum of that dofrg-erel of ancient nations; a doggerel wliich blots Sunday from the matrimonial calendar; says Saturday is no day at all, and makes one shiver for fear of the losses and crosses of Thursday and Friday. That dog-g-erol, strnng-e as it may seem, is responsible for tho selection of the first three days of the week as the best wedding- days all over tho civilized world; and the supci-stitions influence of the lines is "more weighty with church people than with our uu- pretentious modern pagans. Friday is not; tabooed by all nations, ilthough nearly every province is saturated with the belief that Friday s the most unlucky day for any venture. Jt is hang-roan's day, and has jc.en ever since the light from the star of Bethlehem penetrated the court of the Roman emperor in the dawn of the fourth century, aud shed thence its rejected beams to every corner of the .loinan empire. The day when the cross bore the Saviour of the world, also two criminals, became the day of punishment and death in all Roman, courts, and until this day it is called unlucky. Yet, in the superstitious Scotiau country, Friday is regarded as i good day for weddings or any other venture. The better the day the better the deed'" is an aphorism which does not ipply to weddings. There is no better .ay than Sunday, and yet marriages cfdom occur on the Lord's day. It is generally believed that Sunday wed- ing~s arc expedients which do not meet with approval of the g-ods of love or fortune. There are no flowers, no suppers nor other normal features with the Sunday weddings. They are never provocative of hearty congratulations. Society is not religious. Society g-oes to church, butthatisanothcrstory. One may go to church decked in purple and fine linen, and one may sing- in harmony with the sackbut, psaltery and harp, and vet not be religious. But society is consistent with itself and makes no j great blunders. It is well known that j society never marries during- Lent, though it is not at all probable that the ancient rhyme: ••Marry in Lent Live to repent," has anything to do with it. Still, it is a fact tbat a- society devotee would rather wear rue the rest of her life than invoke a rice shower daring the Lenten season. An old chnrch canon forbade marriages between Rogation and Whit Sunday, and another old-time jingle rhymes some of these church canons as follows: "Advent marrlaces doth deny, • But Hilary elves them liberty: SeptuaEeslma says thee Day, .Eight days from Easter soys thee nay. Rosatioa bids thee.to-cantaia, But Trinity sets thee Tree asafn." The day of the week upon which the majority of the weddings occur is Wednesday; and that is because that miserable old doggerel says: -'Wednesday, the best day of alL" But there are many days throughout the year that tne- ancients looKea npon as ominous for those who entered the marital state on those dates. A very old Scotch folk-lore writer says: "That day of the week npon which the 14th of May happens to fall in any- year is esteemed unlucky tnrough all the re-- mainder of the year. None marry or bejjin any business upon it. >"one choose to marry in January or May or to have their banns proclaimed in the end of one quarter of the year and to marry in the beginning of the next." Another tabooed day is "Innocents' day," upon which Herod killed the babies. The Romans never contracted marriag-e on the '.'.ides" or "nones" of any month, and macriage contracted on certain of the saints' days was invalid. A student of .folk-lore may wonder how the ancients came to J marry at all, since the prohibited days far outnumber the free ones, and a free one' in one nation was a crime ag-ainst the church in another, just as the marriage and divorce laws of the various states make a man a happy What is husband in one commonwealth and a rascal in another. | Young ladies who take pleasure in . deceiving- themselves with superstitions must remember "They that marry In green Their sorrow is soon seen." Red is a good ancient color for a wedding dress, but "yellow is jealousy" while '-blue is true." The preferred color of the world is blue, but no matter what color the fabric may he, the wedding dress must not be tried on, because some wise old dowager some time said tiiat "the fitted wedding- dress is sure to become its wearer's shroud.' 1 Juuo, who was both sister and wife of Jupiter, was born in June. In the days of the Cic.sars it was believed that Juno became the guardian of all brides of June. And even now, when :ill the clouds and mists of Koroan mythology have been for centuries dissolved- ij) the rays of the truth and the life, the young ladies of a new era, look upon June as the most favored month and so they name tho day. In our land and in this month we can oftener way:' "Happy is the bride the sun shines on," for June is a sunny month. In Scotland the pretty month of May, with flowers, green leaves and its wealth of sward, is not a mouth for marrying or giving in marriage. The Scotch people believe that Queen Mary, who married Bothwell hi May, casts an evil eye upon all marriages made in that month. The Romans encouraged no marriages in May, because it was a month for the sacred funeral rites. The Chinese absolutely forbid any marriages in May. And now, while tho young ladies of the national capital are stepping forth from carefree maidenhood into the life of vdfehood and its responsibilities; while they are marrying in a film of superstition garnitured by love; while they are congratulated end feted by Castoria la Dr. Samuel Pitcher 5 * prescription for Infenti and Children.

Let joy be uneonfined to any locality. The date of your wedding day will always prove the anniversary of the best day in your life. If you marry a second or third time, you may marry in January' or July, on Friday or any other day. All signs fail in the game of second-hand hearts. Kovrarmed-over affection is recognized by Cupid aor in the Olympian regioTi. Only once in a life- ae can there be two souls with but u, single thought, two hearts that beat as one. Second and third marriages arc commercial transactions. A woman who has trained one husband realizes the dread difficulties of such training. Man is very hard to manipulate. Js'o widow will waste her energies a second time in trying to make an ideal man of her husband. She knows when she takes him for better or worse, tliat he is almost certain to be worse. Consequently, the only genuine, carefree marriages, with golden'futures and glorious anticipations, are first marriages, no matter whether they come on Wednesdays or on Fridays. A good, honest, lovable man will be a good husband on every d;iy of tine week or in any month of the year, cxnd all through life. " SJIJTII D. Fuy. EXPLODED BY WATER.
