But there . was innth mistaken. No sooner - was J two-thirds of the way up the .tree than with shouts of -laughter, the lumbermen rushed out of the surrounding cover and proceeded to chop me down. The chance was too good for them to lose. I concealed my annoyance, and made (, no attempt to descend. On the contrary I thanked them for the little attentions and climbed a few feet further up, to secure a position which 1 saw would be a sofa ono for tat when the tree should fall. Aa 1 did so, 1 perceived, with a gasp and a tremor, that t was not alone in the tree. ' There, not ten feet above mo, stretched at full length along a large branch, was a huge panther, glaring with rage and terror. Trom tho men below the form .was quite concealed. Glaring restlessly from me to my pursuers, the brute seemed uncertain just what to do.

In fact, 1 dare say he understood what was going on and realized that ho and 1 were fellow- sufferers. - ,, V. l laughed softly to myself aa I thought how my tormenlers would be taken abacK when that panther should come down among them. 1 decided that, considering their numbers, there would be at least no more danger for them thin that to which they were exposing ine in their reckless fooling.

Hickson, an English naturalist who has spent some time on the island of Celebes, ha* made somflexlens ve observation of the cora » -of the Malay archipelago. In regard to the food of corals, he is incline! to the beliefi that many of thorn may be vegeto.blp feeder*. SS doubt the water in the vicinity of man- gVove swamps is full of .the debris of leaves and wood, which, sinking to the bottom, must enter the mouths of the coral am- malH. It is suggested that this may explain tho vigorous growths oiten seen near extensive swamps. September 6, 1881, iswoll remembered in New England and parts of New. lork and Pennsylvania as the "yellow day. Southern Canada took on some of the characteristics noted in. the states above mentioned, the yellow in the atmosphere having a more greenish cast, which accounts for the Canucks referring to it as the "green day." In the morning tUe sky had the appearance of being clouded, but as the sun arose it was plainly visible and the color of brass. About midday a much darker yellow appearance prevailed; every- thinc except leaves and grass had the intense yellow look, they appearing of a rich vclvitv green. The cause of the phenomenon,'which lasted but one day, bos never been satisfactorily explained. A successful trial of the new .Bender propeller wheels was made at Newark, N. J., recently, on a thirty-foot naptha launch. The boat has four-Waded paddle wheels, situated in drums at each side of the keel; and the buckets or b ados extend only slightly beyond the hull.

The great moss of foliage, presenting a wide surface to. the air, made the fall a comparatively slow one; but the tremendous sweep of tne drautfhfupward, as the tree-top described its gi B ontic arc, gave me a sickening sensation. Then came the final .dull and thunderous crash, and— in an instant, i found myself standing in my place, jarred but unhurt, with the snow threshed up all about mo. , Tho next instant there was another roar, or rather a iflrt of screaming yell, overwhelming tho riotous laughter of tne wood»uieni and out of the confusion ot tho nine-boughs shot the tawny form o£ the panther in a whirlwind of fury. One of the choppers was in his path and was bowled over like a clumsy nine-pin. Tim next bound brought the beaatonto the backs of a yoke of oxen, and his cruel claws severely scratched tho owns necks. As ttie poor animals bellowed and fell on their knees, the panther paused, with some idea, apparently, of fighting the whole assembled "party. But as the men, recovered from their first amazement, rushed with their axes to the rescue of the oxen, the panther saw that the odds were egainst him. He turned half round and greeted his enemies with one wrrihc nnd strident snarl, then bounded off into the forest at a -pace which made it idle to pursue him. The owner of Uie ox«n hurled an ax after him, but the rnissle fell wide of its mark.— From " 'OhoppingHim Down'," by Charles G. D. Eoberta, in bep- tcmber St.'Nicholas. one ornament in England.

This city is the most important lake fish distributing market on the entire chain of the great laTces, although a very small proportion of the ash that are daily sent from here to the Eastern cities are taken from waters contiguous to Buffalo. They are brought from Lake Superior, Michigan, and Huron, the nnarby waters of Lakes Erie and Ontario furnishing a comparatively small supply of fish for shipment. The fash transported in rifrigeratpr cars, rind Ihe supply is so large that the present demand is not only fully supplied, but there is surplus enough to keep the winter demand for lake fish amply cared for. The trade .m lake fish with seaboard markets has increased so of late years that it.would now ho mipossiblo to supply it during the winter season if winter fishing had to be depended npon for the material. The surplus of the summer and fall catehes is frozen and stored in refrigerators for the winter trade, so that a white-fish, lake trout, yel- ] low pike or lake bass served on a New, Yorker's table in mid-winter may have been caught the previous July.or August.

They like deep water, and are found at their best in water 300 feet deep. Yellow pike come chiefly from Lakes Huron and Ontairo. Lake Erie excels in blue pike and black buss.
