VERY BUSY SCENES IN BERRY FIELDS. The Uipsy Life of Hundreds ol the Tickers, Hlost of Whom Aro Colored. The berry fields in many parts of the peninsula aro now the scenes of great activity, and hundreds--aye, thousands--of pickers are employed at profitable wages. Someone has estimated that within a mile or so of Ridgely alone more t h a n one thousand men, women and children find work in the berry fields. As these people receive very good pay, considering the hours thc-y work each day, and as the most of them spend t h e i r money freely, the mer- a n t i l e trade feels tho benefit very perceptibly d u r i n g the season and for sometime thereafter. Thousands of dollars aro thus distributed by people who w o u l d -- m a n y of ihem-- otherwise have very little to spend. When one stands by some great railroad centre in the city of New York and attempts to c o u n t the many carloads of f r u i t daily sent thither, and watches the almost innumerable wagons engaged in delivering it to the commission merchants, tho markets, and elsewhere, and notes the thousands of crates which are sent to near-by places to be sold, some idea of the vastness oE tho berry business comes to mind. But the most interesting scenes connected with the industry are apparent on the berry farms, of which there are many. Our own county takes a p r o m i n e n t place as a berry-growing county, and the product of Caroline is rapidly increasing. The "picker," who is the most conspicuous figure in the harvesting of the crop, is of a d i s t i n c t and interesting type. Ou some places there are t w e n t y ; 011 others a h u n d r e d , and sometimes more, and there are moie women than men among the h:ilf-bcut figures'along the rows. Tho women m a k e tho best hands, employers finding t h e m more diligent and painstaking iu gathering the luscious f r u i t . In nearly every g r o u p children.are at work, and often their nimble fingers accomplish us much as those of their elders. Many times they make rnoro t h a n a dollar a day. A first-class picker very often makes two dollars a day. The hours of labor depend upon the railroad schedules. The grower and all of his employes, including 1 the superintendent, who places the fruit in crates, are as busy as bees u n t i l the wagons are sent away to the depots with their loads. The berry season lasts several weeks, for when strawberries are, gone other small f r u i t s come On. The labor problem is tho greatest one connected with extensive berry- growing. Many of the pickers lead a kind of Bohemian life. They go from one section to another, as f r u i t ripens for t h e harvest. In many instances the pickers make their homes on the property of the farmers, occupying tents, many of which have been built in recent years, or barns or unoccupied t e n a n t houses. Some- tirues-a dozen will live in one shanty, in which case m a n y partitions are made. The occupants live very cheaply. They do their own cooking, for which work they have plenty of time after leaving the field for tue day. Quite a company of Dorchester county pickers, at work just north of Denton, and near the river, make their home on board of a small boat in which they came up the river.. The importance of our strawberry crop, as well other crops, may bo very accurately gauged by the transactions at Denton National Bank. The result of hist Tuesday's work at this institution are in t h i s connection quite interesting. The n u m b e r of foreign cheeks.presented that day --and about all of them were for strawberries--was 800, amounting to $17,780.71. Local chocks to the amount of $8,739.93 wore cashed. The total a m o u n t of small money paid out that day--and it wus largely used, no doubt, in paying bills incident to the berry business--was $10,999.90. The bank officials have been very busy all the week. A linlic Run Over nnd Killod. An i n f a n t daughter of Captain Joseph Griffith met a frightful death on Wednesday evening last, shortly' after s u n d o w n . The little one had escaped from the house and was playing in tho street m front. It had crawled to the nearest wheel-rut and had stopped and was playing in the-dirt. A wagon heavily londed with slabs, in charge of William Friend, colored, came along just at this t i m e , and the child, unnoticed in tho deepening twilight, was run over by the heavily-hiden vehicle, tho wheels passing across the babe's chest. Death followed in less than half an hour. A jury of inquest, summoned by Justice Higuutt, acting coroner, Thursday evening returned a verdict setting forth that death was accidental. Judge Stump's Tribute to Mr. Kcntkng. The formal announcement of the death of the late Thomas J. Keating was made in the Talbot court on Monday. Judge Stump spoke feelingly of the deceased. He said Mr. Keating, in his old age, after years of hard work, during which he had saved, as lie thought, a competence which would make his declining years comfortable, found himself confronted, through faults of others, with financial difficulties beyond his power to handle, but that he with his own hands, feeble physically but strong in honesty, drew a deed conveying to his creditors, made for him by others, every particle of property he possessed, even lo.liis cow and his household f u r n i t u r e . The following has beon contributed to the JOURNAL on the death of Alouzo E. Griffith, who died May 2lst, 1S9S : Iu the bright m o n t h of May, when n a t u r e , robed in beauty, presents her greatest charms, Death, that dark, dread messenger, camo to the household band and whispered in the ears of loved ones there, "not t h i n e , but mine;" and, departing, bore ou his sable pinions the spirit oC A]OUKO E. Griffith to realms u n k n o w n . Mr. Griffith had been confined to his room for about ten m o n t h s , and although his-condition was such as to cause his family and friends to entertain the cravest ap- prehcnsious, he boro liis suffering with such characteristic patience and cheerfulness that they wore led to hope that ho might be spared. It was otherwise ordered by Him Who doeth all things well. Mr. Griffith was converted at the age of 23 at Ames' M. P. C h u r c h , of w h i c h ho was a constant and devoted member u n t i l his death. In private life his earnest endeavor was to perform a parental, Christian d u t y . The writer, who \v;is well acquainted w i t h his homo life, remembers nothing but deeds of kindness and love manifested for his family, which seemed so dear to him. His m a n y friends feel that they have sustained a personal loss, and unite in offering their heartfelt sympathy to the grief- stricken widow and children. Tho deceased was born September 18th, 1865, in this county, and was one of the well-known and highly-respeet- ed citizens. At tho timo of his death he had been living on a farm near Bnrrsville. Mr. Griffith was a victim to that ruthless disease, cons u m p t i o n . Stricken in the very m e r i d i a n of life, in the midst ef health and happiness, he never uttered a word of complaint. The only thoughts that troubled him wore of leaving his wife and four little ones. Ho often spoke of a happy reunion in which t h e r e would be no more parting, and talked as long as his strength would permit of tho joys awaiting h i m . When wo remember that our loss is his.eteriial gain, let us with him say : "Joy foruvcr ! the task is done ! The jratcs are passed and Heaven's won !" TH E AM ERICAN A R M Y T O GO TO CUBA.

The American n a v y has this week demonstrated how modern men-of- war, c o m p e t e n t l y maimed, can dispose of those "impiegiiablo" natural fortresses with which tho const cities of Cuba were supposed to be forti- (icld. On Monday tho ships of tho American fleet bombarded the batteries in front of Santiago, and in throe hours silenced them and reduced the fortifications to ruins. Two Spanish warships were s u n k , and another one or two partially disabled. On Tuesday morning five American ships shelled the town of Caiman era, f o r t y miles east of Santiago, and compelled tho garrisons to flee. It is believed that this point was one ef those selected at which to land American, troops, and this attack is t h o u g h t to have been preparatory to such debarkation- Twenty thousand men, under Major- Genoral Shatter, left Tampa Wednesday to co-operate with Sampson at Santiago. These troops consisted mainly of regulars, but tho Fifth Maryland Regiment of volunteers is believed to have beon included in the expedition. Lieutenant Hobsou and the seven men who accompanied him iu the hazardous u n d e r t a k - ing of r u n n i n g the Merrimac into the entrance to the harbor of Santiago and sinking her, are supposed to be confined at El Morro, w h i c h fortification, by order of Admiral Sampson, was not included in the bombardment of Monday. The insurgonts at Manila are iu control,' h a v i n g captured nearly 2,000 -Spanish soldiers. One report says the town has been entered by tho insurgents and that General Agdinaldo, the leader, is iu charge. The Spanish Captain-General admits that he is losing ground fast; that the insurrection has reached great proportions, and that the forces at his command will not suf fice to hold the ground against two enemies. Tlic I'Vusli Air .Society. The Children's Fresh Air Society of Baltimore City is entering upon its seventh year's work of providing s u m m e r outings for the children of the poor of that city. During the season of 1S97 ovnr eighteen h u n - dred l i t t l e cliildrcu were taken from the hot alleys and courts of Baltimore, placed in good country homos for two weeks, aud brightened and strengthened by the change afforded, they were t h e n safely returned- Lo t h e i r mothers. The aim of the Fresh Air Society is to get churches, or religious societies connected w i t h t h e m , interested in securing homes for tho children, and thus providing free entertainment to tho little guests. Often last year t h o ' i n t e r est of whole c o m m u n i t i e s wore aroused in the work, and some t o w n s and villages entertained two, three and four car-loads of children. How much real joy was put i n t o those little lives, no one can even estimate. It is the purpose of the Society to continue its efforts along these lines, and it is hoped that in many more towns efforts' may this year be made to provide entertain- m e n t for children in car-load lots. The Society pays every expense of placing the children in the hands of those willing to provide e n t e r t a i n - ment, but does not pay board. Miss Florence Galloway, secretary, 4 W. Saratoga Street, Baltimore, Mil., desires lo communicate with a n y who may be interested in this do- serving charity. UuiuoeriUie K i l l t t n ,' Assoc-l:iUin.

No man has yot b j en able to answer t h i s question. The movements of the shad are of much interest and more mystery to fish eulturists. Beyond thy period when tho fish is in the river almost absolutely nothing is k n o w n of its habits. It bolougs to a class k n o w n as aiiadromons fishes--that is, those whose homo is in the sea, but who come into fresh water to s p a w n . From the time the egg is deposited to the time the fish reaches m a t u r i t y aud becomes a spawn or t h e r e is a period of three years, and the first five or six months of this only are spent in i'reh water. The average female shad deposits about 30,000'eggs, although a very largo one may deposit a n y w h e r e from 60,000 to !)0,000 eggs. OC those it is estimated that not more than 10 per ceut. are hatched, tlie remainder either not beiug fertilized or else are destroyed by the m a n y other fish in the l i v e r . · Of those left it is estimated t h a t 00 per cent, are devoured. Thus out of 30,000 eggs man, by .irticial methods, can cause 90 per cent, to be hatched, against the 10 per cent. - of nature. The young artifically hatched must be placed almost immediately in the n a t u r a l breeding grounds, and .assuming t h a t 90 per ceut. of these little creatures will bo devoured by larger fish there will still remain 2,700 to reach the sea, against 25 or 30 by natural hatching. A f t e r hatching, the y o u n g shad grow Very rapidly, feeding on small flies aud water animal- eulae. By September they are from three to four inches long, and then as the water grows colder they begin making their way in vast shoals to the sea. As soon as they reach deop water all trace of them is lost. WollHKly--Queens toivJi.

I said meant a n y t h i n g that would intoxicate, and I am told cidor, such as i sold'liore in some places, will make d r u n k . Such being the case, the law will reach that too. I find some who have been engaged iti the sale of the u n l a w f u l drug are still at it. You have been seen since I wrote the article. Now, as I said, I don't want to get anybody into, nor know of anyone getting into, trouble, but if this business is not stopped some oue will be sorry for it. It has been said to me, "how are you going to proceed, and have you any evidence?" I expect to proceed iu such a vrety that justice will be meted out to tire guilty parties. I am sure we have some men in office who havo not bowed the knee to Baal-, and will discharge their d u t y in the right direction to the conviction of the offenders of the law. I have entered into t h i s warfare, and expect to push, the battle to the gate if it cost w h a t I have and my life besido. I am sure oth r ers will stand by me. WlTjLAKD H. THAW LEY.

W AN A IU AKER'S PHILADELPHIA, A\onday, June 0,189 HALF=YEAR SALE OF '' MUSLIN UNDERWEAR The twenty-second half-year sale of Women's Undergarments and Children's Wear is in progress. FRESH AND NEWLY-DAINTY GARMENTS made to our exacting requirements from good new cottons just from the mills. The markets never held so much of unwortliiness--skimped sizes, old and yellow muslins, poor embroideries. Disgusted with such trash! our chief and his corps of helpers started on a new campaign. The result is for your approval. The most inexpensive pieces °here are perfectly fashioned, well made and daintily trimmed. There is tlie carefulness and liberality of home produced garments, with an added plentitude of work that the most patient home sewer would not have time for. The chief went to Palis for ideas and makers went to Switzerland to get daintiest edgings and insertions at first hands. So closely has the making preceded the sale that only 600,000 Garments Are Ready But the work goes on, and a town-ful of bright, intelligent, rosy- cheeked young women are making fme Wages w l l i l e you ai ' e choosin g the tru 'y economical needlework we have gathered--tor this underwear is MADE IN SEMI-RURAL WORKROOMS, with such sensible surroundings for the health and comfort of the workers that the Product is to All Purposes Home-Made Our contracts are supposed to yield us sufficient goods for the entire months selling, but prudent people k n o w that delays are dangerous. Even this business organization cannot command such low prices continuously. We ,and you are fortunate in the supplies we gather for a month's selling twice a year. Economy for you--liberality for them. Sounds inconsistent, but it is not. Let us see how easily it is done. Even such staple goods as muslins are a mite cheaper in carload lots. That is how they are bought. The trimmings come straight from St. Gall. All in all, it is fair to suppose that materials cost twenty per cent, u n d e r retail prices. The manufacturer is satisfied with five per cent, profit, and even liberal wages don't add much to the, cost when, with labor-saving machinery, a young woman can produce a fairly elaborate petticoat in an hour. THE SIMPLER GARMENTS SELL AT ABOUT WHAT EQUAL MATERIALS WOULD COST YOU, and the very finest undergarments are" not extravagant. There is a winsome collection" of Lingerie from Paris--exquisite pieces that will charm any lover of daintiness--these fine things in the Little French Store.
