3IILES OF FROZEN FISH. A Queer Phenomenon Encountered in Bsixri^s Se&. Slnsrulnr Condition In Which a Flnli- loST Crew Fouixl V»t*L NunilJCTM of the Silver lluHo—A \Fon- The recently returned salmon fishers, .•whalers, find sealers frorn the Arctic tell of a strang-e thiofr—an occurrence •without a parallel in the experience of Ihor-or who sail to tho far north, says the £art Franciscu Chronicle. A sea captain wh'o was a passenger ^•3>n the salmon schooner Glenn tells the »tory with much circumstance. The Cl&un left this citr in March last bound :for Behrinfr sea, which was readied on May •!. In the latter month there is •usually a little drift, ice, but seldom enough to interfere materially with the profrri'ss of the many whalers, sealers, and other craft which make for the *ea at that time of year. This season, however, the sea was JiteralTy covered with drift ice extcad- inff frorn the Alaskan peninsula clear across northward to the VuUon. The «ou'ihi\-ist winds usuall}' blow ofV.shore, and, dririnj; the iuc- further from r.In- land, leave a passage between ice and land. Tin: (.tlunn intended '." m;d<e JJri.stnl hay and stood to the eastward, hut was unable to reach it. on account of the ice, ami so had to put, back toward the peninsula to await tlicOetayer; southeast winds. It was while the (Henri and four Oth- ,«rs passed up toward, Uristo. 1 . bay 'Shat the phenomenon rvns encountered. Tho vessel had just emerged from Ou- B'i.-nak pass, about half way between, • Ainoukhta island and llntaol bay, when a vast, quantity of dead fish was encountered. They were in the water tis iar as the eye could Nee on each siile of; ,the vessel, and for sixty miles the Glenn traveled through the shoals of fish. On examination they proi-ed to be jilvcr hake, a kind oC codfish, but narrower and smaller and having only two dorsal and anal fin. They weighed bc- 'tween four and five pounds and were .perfectly fresh, the {fills buin£ still 'led. Some of the sailors were afraid •to eat them, thinking they had perhaps teen killed by some subterranean up- Lcaval, or, possibly, tliroujyh the overflow from the volcano of \Vcn.ya.minor, ivhEcTt was active last full. Other sailors less fastidious did not hesitate to cut the fish open, and then a peculiar condition was revealed. Although tho fish were fresh and had not stiffened, the yills and intestines were found to .1)0 full of ice. This was not the ease •'in one instance, but every fish which was opened, and apparently accounted ior their deaths in such large numbers. Tho anomalous condition of the fish •was. the subject of much talk and speculation. That the fish should be com- pwiitivuly limber ami that there should "be ice within them seemed to indicate that a shoal of them bad been suddenly overtaken and frown to death, and on the thawing out of the ice the carcasses 'had been released, but had not risen in temperature suPaciently to thaw out the ice ia their bodies. Those of the sailors who cooked the fish said that they tasted as good as over, and •that they were not tainted by sulphur .us they might have been in the event of their death being due to a sudden subterranean upheaval. The gentleman who is authority for the story has been traveling every sea- sou to the Arctic since 1SSS, and never had seen such a shoal of dead fish, nor jet discovered fish with the intestines frozen as these had. He also drew attention to tho fact that in tho seven years of his traveling, though he had often seen black smoke issuing 1 from tho Wenyaminor volcano, near Port Moller, he never saw it or heard of its teing in active eruption until 1S9J3, in Iho fall. Then it belched hot nshos and flames, and the roar was like artillery. This volcano is close to tho shore, and the line of fish extended almost as fat- north as to a. point opposite it. Tho captain docs not maintain that there •was roiy connection between the facts of the eruption in tho fall and the finding of the fish in the spring, but merely states the facts as they existed, leaving to others to trace any connection or reject any association of the phenomena. The area of the frozen fish was not less than half a mile wide and sixty miles long. When the Glenn, on its bomcwavd jjourncy, reached Ounimak pass again, on August 20, every sign of the- fish had disappeared,, Many had doubtless been eaten by the gnlls and ether birds, and others had sunk in the warm water. As far as the captain could state, there was no other fish of any kind except tho silver hake in tho »hoal. The carcasses had been por- '-.aps almost as suddenly released from Jheir bonds of ico as they had been entombed. WOMEN MAKE POOR SPIES. .* Sccri-t-Survlcc Man Say* the Fair Sex Do Not Succeed a« Detectives. "Women are not pood detectives," •aid an experienced secret service man, on being asked his opinion by a New York Herald man. "To begin with, •tnero are many places to which a woman cannot go without exciting suspicion and this defeats her object at the Out»et,but bayond this a woman is unfitted "by nature for detective work. "In the first place, she jumps at a •conclusion and acts on it in opposition to all human probabilities, possibilities ind reason. As a rule, a woman does not reason. <5he looks on a thing- as she wants it to be or thinks it ought to be jmd will follow that theory. She is led 'by prejudices, favors or sympathies, re- jurtlless of facts. "As u detective she is sometimes a •ucccss in entrapping a man, but her work generally ends in a blunder which Betrays her.

THE WICKES FENDER. A Ctifnp Invention That JHcht Sav« Many Dr. Otto Wickes, wholesale dnig-g-ist oi liirlfjcwood, L. I., ha.s invented a life-savinff device which bids fair to settle the dread question of how to make the front end of a moving- trolley car something- better than a constant menace to life and limb. It is both ingenious and simple, and, what is a very moving consideration in fenders, as well as other things, it can be made cheaply, and Dr. \Vickos declares that there can.be no doubt about its effectiveness. The points of. the new device can best be understood by a glance at the illus- TilE WICXJ58 KKXDKIl. tration. In front of the dashboard of the car is a flexible false dashboard of iron lattice work backed by springs of great flexibility. This is so arranged that it can be moved from one end of the car to the oilier without trouble, and it is of so flexible a nature that a body picked up by a car moving at a very rapid rate would be deposited on the platform or catcher without injury. The dashboard may bo made of bent iron or perforated rubber. The horizontal platform is also made of tho same material. It travels usually about an inch and a half above tho rails, but with a heavy body on -it it would be borne down upon the small wheels which ride beneath it, and would then ride about an inch above the rails, low enough down to insure safe capture of anything alive which might get in the way, yet high enough not to interfere with the running of the car. There is no hard surface anywhere. PAID IN SAUSAGES. but 111 tell you of a planfor testing the respective strength' of your eyes that is as simple as it is trustworthy. All you need is a stereoscope and a photograph. That arrangement in which the picture holder slides up and down a flat frame, trombone fashion, is the best sort of stereoscope for the purpose, although any will do, and the photograph that will give the best results is a cabinet size view of some locality with people in it. The modus operand! is simplicity itself. Put the photograph in the holder and focus it jnst enough so that you can seo the faces clearly. Then close the left eye and look at the picture intently with your right eye while you count thirty slowly. Now close right eye and look at the picture with your left eye for the same length oi time. Then open both eyes and look at the picture without changing tho focus. Something queer will happen. The figures on the one side of the picture will seem to move across the view and group themselves with those on the other side, and—tliis is the point of the experiment—the figures will always move away from the weak eye. Moreover, they move with a very precise relation of speed to tho weakness of vision. If the left eye, for example, is quite weak, tho figures will move very quickly across tho plane of sigh*' \o the right side, while if there is but a slight defect the movement will bo gradual, and so on. A queer thing about this experiment is that, simple as it seems, it will bring out defects of vision that have never been suspected, and another queer thing is that it will demonstrate the cases in which both C3 T es are of ccpjul power to bo surprisingly exceptional. I have tried it in a score of mixed gatherings, and never yet without having the experimenter observe some movement of the figures. There was one old lady, I remember, up at Port Jefferson last summer, who persisted in saying that she saw precisely with both eyes as she did with ono eye, and well she might, for when .[ examined her eyes more closely I found she was stone blind on the left side, and didn't know it" lion would suit you at all for a husband." "Why, mamma?"' "Well, in the first place, he is old enough to be your father." "But. mamma, girls often marry elderly men, especially if they don't show their age particularly." "But that is precisely \vhat Mr. Archibald Vandermillion does. tie shows every day of his age. Then again, he has led a very wild life for at least thirty years. Think of that, lie was sowing wild oats fully ten years before you were born. An inexperienced girl like you could do nothing whatever in managing a man like that. He has had his own way all his life, without the least restraint from a judicious wife, and it, is very strange that he should think of giving up his bachelor freedom." "But, mamma—" "Hear me out, Stella, love. Not for all his vast wealth, nor for the elegant establishment he could give you, would I commit my delicate daughter of nineteen years to tho care of such a man as Archibald Vandermillion. I should be an unnatural mother even to think of such a sacrifice for a moment. The sort of a wife lie needs is one who can curb his unbridled inclinations and habits, and transform him into a useful member of society. For these reasons, Stella dear, ] have resolved to marry him myself." With the virtue of sclf-sncrifice upon her noble features, Mrs. Delaney swept out of the room, leaving her daughter The imagination is racked to suggest odd and costly combinations whereby one social rival may outdo the other.

It was a cold, sleety day not long since, says tho St. Louis Republic, and a certain well-known parson, whoso home is in tho "West end, had settled himself, as ho thought, for the evening before a cheerful, blazing lire in his study, when there came a rap at his door 'and the request that he' be good enough to "tie the knot" for a couple then in waiting. The good D, D. readily acquiesced, because, ho says, of all the duties of his office this is ono he never in the least wearies of performing, and so lie is always "getatablo." Tho would-be benedict received tho doctor's affirmative answer smilingly, and returned to the pavement, where ho assisted to alight from a high covered wagon a fair and blushing country lass. The good divine soon pronounced the words that made them man and wife, and tho groom immediately bethought him that it was the proper thing and next in order to give the minister a fee. But he had no money, and for a moment hesitated to offer what he had planned to give in KETUKXED WITI! A STRING OF SAUSAGES. lieu of coin. Presently, however, he said: "Parson, we ain't pot any money to give you, an' I hate to ask you to do this for nothin', but I's got some powerful good country sausages out in the vragin if you'll accept of "em," and, without waiting 1 for a reply, he darted out, and soon returned with a string- of sausages fit tn delight the eye of any man who could recall farm life as truly and plainly as the doctor.

"On my last trip to Germany I had to run down from Uanovcr to Cassel, and after we had been jog-g-iog- along' at a sedate pace of three minutes to the mile for a, couple of hours or so, we came to a stop. I looked out of tha window and saw that wo were iu the raidst of: a very pretty country scene, meadows and gardens, but with nothing in the shape of a village to be seen ex- ccpt-some scattered farmhouses. So I concluded tbnt either it. was a wayside station for some district, or else that an accident had happened. The only other passenger in the coach, a Lutheran clergyman I put him up to be, knew oi no stopping- place there, so I lowered the door sash to hunt up the conductor or guard. "As I poked my head out 1 saw u man that I took to be the fireman or engineer coming 1 across the meadows with a big- bundle done up in a blue handkerchief, swing-ing-from his Hand, while his mate was, leaning- out of the cab window, smoking- a big- pipe. "The conductor was sitting beside the track examining- u, belated wild flower through hisg-old-rimmcd spectacles, the escape steam was gently whistling through the valve, a few passengers had their heads poked out of the other carriage windows like mine, 'all apparently watching- the approach of the man with the blue handkerchief with a sort of good-natured family interest. "Altogether it was a very pretty, restful, pastoral picture. I hesitated for a minute to break in upon it, 'but when 1 looked at my watch and found we had been standing there for more than a quarter of an hour I yelled to the professor-like guard and asked him what was the matter. "Me arose and came smiling- pleasantly to the carriage window. "'What's the matter?" I repeated. 'Is there an accident?' He smiled still more pleasantly. " 'Oh, no, Mein Hcrr,' he said, 'only there is a famous quality of die bach- tresse, of watercress, in the brook at the bottom of that field over there, and the g-ood Wilhelm Schwartz, the engineer, generally makes it a point to pet a bunch of it for his Sunday salad when he comes alone here on the Saturday afternoon train.' "By the time the guard had finished his delightful little story the engineer had reached the engine.

Th» Mother's Conception of Her Duty Wai Clear aud Her Pnrpoie Firm. Miss Stella Delaney was lost in thought. This is a warning: against venturing into unfamiliar territory. To do Stella justice, it must be said that she seldom wandered in thoughtful fields. But the present was an extraordinary occasion. Mr. Archibald Vandermillion had asked her to become Mrs. Archibald VandermillJoa, and lie must have meant it, for he committed his proposal to writing and availed himself of the postal facilities in transmitting it. Mr. Vandermillion was not by nature a conrageous man. He had not the nerve to propose verbally. That is why he sent a letter. Like the dutiful daughter that she was, Stella Delaney laid the letter in her niamma'slap and asked the maternal advice. Mrs. Delaney read'it carefully and then said: Procloua MlnLitnrert HAVO Kdpofttedly Ueen Stolen from tho Pnpal I'alaco. Audacious and repeated thefts of precious miniatures from the Vatican library have been detected in the following 1 manner: Quite recently a, person offered for sale to Prof. Chierici some exquisite miniatures which he said were copies of those in certain works in the Vatican library. It happened that the professor had examined the originals in their places in the vat- ican library, and was at once convinced that the originals, and not copies, were before him. lie at once informed Mgr. Carini, the Vatican librarian, who verified the fact that many precious miniatures were missing from ancient books and parchments. The police were .communicated with, and after some research two persons have been arrested who, if not the thieves, were undoubtedly in league with them. One is a person who called himself Prof. Sardi, of Paterno, but ia identified as Giovanni Kapisardi, of Biancavilla, in the province of Paterno. The other is an antiquary named Ta- vazzi. Among the stolen articles were forty- Dne miniatures from a parchment volume of the year 1100, entitled "L'Oraelia di Frate Giacomo." Seventeen miniatures were also taken from another parchment, entitled "I Trionfi di Petrarca." Of the former thirty-nine have been recovered. All the sales were made to foreigners. A beautiful portrait o? Donna Laura,' cut from tho Petrarca manuscript, was sold at Florence. From another source it is learned that these thefts were known at the Vatican to have been going on for some time, but that silence had been kept from £r disinclination to appeal to the Italian police authorities, DECORATIVE" GASTRONOMY. Ad veil tare Hunter. Col. Barras, in "India, and Tiger Hunting," says that during a pause in panther hunting, he and his companions were about to take luncheon on the borders of an impenetrable covert where the animal lay, lie adds: The "tiflhi-basket" stood just on the other side of my friend Sand ford. I stretched across him to ro:i.ch it with my right hand, and had just grasped the handle when a succession of short, savage roars broke upon our ears* mingled with the wild shouts of the natives, who were evidently being chased by that ferocious brute. At this tirae 1 felt that my hat would probably do rooro for me than my gun; so I crushed it down on my head, seized the gun and faced the enemy. The panther came at me with lightning bounds. Owing to the boost's tremendous speed, I could see nothing but a shadowy form with two large, round bright eyes fixed upon me with an unmeaning stare, as it literally flew toward me. I raised my gun, and fired with all the care I could exercise at such short, notice; but I missed, and the panther bounded light as a foa.ther, with its arms around my shoulders. Thus we stood for a few secouds, and 1 distinctly felt the animal snufling for my throat. Mechanically I turned my head so as to keep the thick-wadded cape of my helmet in front of the creature's rouz- /le; but I could hear and feel plainly the rapid yet cautious efforts it was making to find an opening, so as to tear the great vessels that lie in the neck. I had no weapon but my guu, which was useless while the animal was closely embracing me; so I stood perfectly still, well knowing that Sandford would liberate mo if it was possible to do so. As may bo supposed, the panther did not spend much timo in investigating the nature of a wadded hat-cover, and before my friend could, fire the beast pounced upon my left elbow, taking a piece out, and then buried its long, sharp fangs in the joint till they met. At the same time I was hurled to the earth with such violence that, I knew not how I got there, or what had become of ray gun. I was lying on tho ground with the pauther on toy of me, and could feel my elbow joint wabbling in and out, as the beast ground its jaws, with a movement imperceptible to the bystanders, but which felt to me as if I were being violently shaken all over, la a few seconds the loud and welcome sound.of Sandford's rifle struck upou.my ear, and I sat up. I was free, and the panther had gone, lie had bounded away, shot through tho body, into a thicket, where he was afterward killed by a spear- thrust. Tho Crutch Voicn. There was an interesting sight in the house of representatives of the congress which has just ended, every timo tellers were appointed, which is described by tho authors of "The Show at Washington:" A member on each side of tho question under dispute takes his stand in front of the speaker's desk, and tho members file between the two men and record their vote. Messrs. Stone,' of Kentucky, and Sickles, of New York, each lost a le:g in the civil war. and are. obliged to use a crutch at ail times.

Culinary fancy then assorted its claims. In the last century, says an exchange, it was required of dishes that they should look tempting-, provoke inquiry, and arouse interest and expectation. Pifr v^as drossed to look like lamb, lamb to taste like pig, pike to taste like sturg-eon. Mincemeat was pressed in molds, and cunningly colored with herbs so as to resemblo melons; veal was stuffed into fish skins, and fried parsnips made to take on the disguise of trout. The furniture and equipment of the table were of secondary importance. It was only necessary that the dishes, which were all in evidence, should gratify the eye and furnish the decorative quality. With the close of the nineteenth the gastronomic methods of the eighteenth century are completely reversed. Culinary delights and surprises are now a matter of minor moment. All effort is expended upon bewildering and brilliant, schemes of table decoration. Flowers, silk, lace, linen, china, glass, silver and gold, and the wonderful adaptations oi tho electric light, are all combined to make of the dinner table a picture carefully studied in all of its details of composition and color.
