The Wilmington Jisery Evening of Tuesday publishes reports telling of I remarkable gold deposits iu Cecil c o u n t y , and tho excitement which the discoveries have caused. The first (ind was m.vde :i few weeks ago, and kept as secret as possible, but tho matter leaked out, and shaft after shaft has been sunk, and the vein tiaced for several miles. Assays made range from $4 to $40 per ton. All digging, so far, has been practically confined to the surface, and it is, therefore, impossible to tell how deep tlie gold goes. The gold is found in a rotten stone, and a sample exhibited to a representative of the Association Press, to-day, wab very rich iu the metal. So far, it has only b«en found in what is known in that locality as the red soil, which extends clear across the lower end of Lancaster couuty, cross! ug the Snsquehanna at Peach Bottom, aud entering Maryland near Rock Springs. The richest finds have been made iu the vicinity of the latter place. Some rich ore was also taken out of a pit dug on the south side of the Conowingo Creek, in Fulton township, Lancaster county, not far from New Texas. From here, diggings at points oa a line taking in Rock Springs, Pilottown and Mexico have all produced gold- bearing rock. This land is so unproductive that no effort was made to till it, aud it was a common saying that a stranger could never get the owner to voluntarily acknowledge his proprietorship. Now, everything is changed, aud during the past week sales have been made of mining rights at large figures. Philadelphia capitalists are getting control of the land as fast as they can, and endeavoring to keep the matter quiet. The diggers, when questioned, say that they do not know what they are digging for, but, at the same time, they are taking precautions to save every particle of dirt and rock. These barrens, in the old stage days, were famous throughout the country for their bad reputation. The stage line to Washington passed over them, and they were in favorite jaunts 'of the highwaymen of that period. Morphia As a Substitute for Hanging. Baltimore JVews. Concerning the bill now pending n the Legislature in regard to the nfliction of the death penalty by electricity it seems to me that some imple aud more advantageous ine- liod might be introduced such as he injection of morphia,- for instance. It requires no skill to administer a .hypodermic injection, ind it could, therefore, be dono by he sheriff as well as by anyone else. On the appointed day the sheriff,-in he presence of the legal witnesses, vould enter tho cell of the condemned man aud inject into his arm or Ibewhere six grains of sulphate of norphia; soon overwhelming sleep vould seize tho prisoner, and abso- utely w i t h o u t paiu or consciousness le would rapidly audsurely pass into he sleep that knows no awakening. Po make tho matter absolutely cer- aiu, after consciousness was lost i.t more 'grains could be adtninis- ered. This method would have the bvious and great advantages of absence of complicated apparatus, )aiulessuess, trifling expense and an entire freedom from the heartrend- ng scenes now too frequent at executions.

Sample bottle- SHAD HAVE BECOME MORE PLENTIFUL iiooel Work of llio Stutc FlKh Commission-The J'rocchs of Hurdling-. The increase of shad in Maryland waters during recent years has been^ something enormous. On this subject the a n n u a l report of the Commissioners of Fisheries of Maryland just issued, suys: "Tho shad has become one of the principal fish of our markets, taking tho lead, both in quality and quantity. Before the work of systematically stocking rice 25e. aud ree. Mr. Ward L. S m i t h , of Frederick- own, Mo., was troubled with chronic iarihoea for over t h i r t y years. He ad become f u l l y satisfied that it vas only a question of a short time n t i l he would h a v e to give up. He ad been tieated by some of the physicians iu Europe and America but got no permanent re- ief.

The Rising Sun, Northeast Elk 'leek Electric Railway Company has elected officers. ripe four our rivers and bay by artificial means began, the supply every season was very limited, especially on the Eastern Shore. With hatching tho catch has increased from year to year; where theio was ono fislior- mau with one trap catchiug from teu to twenty shad, now there are ten, and the catch has increased tenfold. More more money is realized from the catch of shad than 'any other kind of fish. They make their appearance in our waters about the first of March, and continue u n t i l about May 20, when they have finished depositing their eggs or spawn and are ready to return to the sea. They are seldom used after they deposited their eggs, owing to their poor condition. "We commence to strip or take the spawn about April 1, and . continue as long as we can get shad. We have from two to boats at each station. They follow the fishermen drifting with their nets, and when a ripe shad is taken it is immediately stripped. The melt of the male shad is mixed with eggs in pans, which are taken to the station and deposited in boxesor jars arranged for hatching. It takes from three to six days to hatch out young shad; then they are -kept in the boxes or jars from four to six days, after which they-are put into tins and carried'to the head waters of tbe different streams and deposited. All the eggs thus hatched and returned to the different streams are clear gain, as the fish caught by th.o fisherman would be shipped to the different markets, and the spawn lost or destroyed; whereas, we take the spawn from the fish, pay tlie fisherman for it, give him back tho fish and he ships it to the market with the rest of his catch. He gets pay for the spawn and we put back in the rivers from 20,000 to 30,000 young shad in a condition to take care of themselves. If tho eggs were deposited by the mother shad they would be left to the mercy of the different kinds of fish and eels which follow up the shad and feed on the eggs. It has been demonstrated that one hundred per cent, more young fish can be hatched out and saved by artificial breeding than by natural process. Not five per cent, of the eggs is lost by the.artifical process. The young fish are able to take care of themselves when they are launched into the different streams. When they are set free they are large enough and bold euough to look out for food. - "Up to ten years ago shad were unknown on the Mauokin River. Captain John Tyler ; an old resident and fisherman { upon the Manokin · River, certifies that shad were unknown to the fishermen of that river until about 1885. He and others declare that during the last ten years the number of shad taken has increased from year to year, until the last season just passed, which afforded the largest catch within the memory of the oldest fisherman whose time has been spent on these waters. ' "To show how successful the propagation of shad can be made, the · United States government in 1871 successfully deposited shad fry in the Sacramento River, California, up to which time the fish had not been known ou the Pacific coast. Three years afterward they began to make their appearance,"aud now there are shad iu every stream on the Pacific coast from Los Angeles,, California, to Wrangell Island, -Alaska. It is the judgment of all experienced persons ttiat the future supply will depend largely upon artificial means of keeping the streams, rivers and the bay well stocked. "The distribution of shad for the years 189C and 1897 wero 53,625,500." . Minor MntterH Business men of Cape May expect to enjoy a good season this year. They are making earnest efforts An' that direction. A letter from that towu says a committee has been -appointed to confer with the managers of the Queen Anne's Railroad Coin- puny at Baltimore, with a view to open a new communication to this resort from the south, via the Delaware Bay. Dorchester farmers have agreed to raise tomatoes for $6 per ton. Fanners in other sections also demand this price, and the canners, generally are acceding to the demand.
