A Marine Curiosity with Decidedly Peculiar Featurea It Ii Culled the Whip-Kay, and Loom tike a Butterfly—It Does Not lay EBC«, But Produce* LIvlHR It* Newly-Horn. Nearly every animal that lives in the Bea is called, in common language, a "fish." And so \vo have a close, relative of the whales, an animal which has a, bony skeleton, breathes by means ol lungs nnd suckles its young, called a "Wuck fish." Animnls like the oyster, the clairij the mussel are called ''shell fish,"' although, having no internal skeleton, they are farther away from a true fish than even a.m:m is. Then ng-ain all have seen "star fishes," creatures wholly unlike any fish that man has taken on any hook. Swimming abundantly in the sea are other creatures, transparent as glass, colored sometimes with the hues of the rainbow and consisting almost wholly of water. These go by the nnme of "jelly fishes," So far as true relationships are concerned, the black fish is in the far-awny north, the shell fish in the distant south, the star fish in the remote east and the jelly fish in the wide extended west. The picture showe this ray, as it is called, or, more specifically, this •whip- ray, as seen iron, above. It looks more like a great butterfly than a fish, but the great wing-like organs at the sides, says the Chicago Times-Herald, are the enormously developsd pectorinl fins, which reach backward nearly to tie root of the tail and forward to the eyes, behind these fins is a pair of small ventral fins. The tail is most remarkable, being 1 very long- nnd slender and flexible. If the ray has a width of two feet the toil may have a length of four feet. Piig-ht, at the foot of this tail, on the upper sidv, is a sting, a bouy organ three or four inches long, pointing backward, with teeth on each side, which pointfor- w:u'd. When the animal is attacked it can, by a movement ot its body, thrust this sting, or spine, into the enemy and inflict a severe and very painful wound. Recently on the coast of Florida, while skinning a large shark, I found one of these spines down deep in the muscles- WHIP RAY. near its pectoral fin. The shark had doubtless attacked the ray, received a thrust of its sting and this had stuck in the wound. Some of the rays which have stings are called sting-rays, or Btingorees. Those which have long slender tails are called whip-rays, or whipparecs. What use there is for such, a tail is hard to guess. Iheeyes of our,whjp-ray are at the sides of the head and do not show well. The dark spots at the back of the head are two large holes, or spiracles which open into the back of the mouth. The gill openings, the mouth and the nostrils are on the under side, of the head. The teeth are very remarkable. Between the lower jaw there is a broud, flat plate, made up of many smaller plates, which run from each aide forward and meet at an angle. The tip of this plate projects slightly out of the mouth. In the roof of the mouth is a similar flat plate. The two platee.form H pair of millstones, between which the food is crushed. The foodisraadeupof small shell-bearing: animals,'crabs and Send fishes. The 'movements of this creature through th« water ore interest- Ing. Having no-brood tail, like an ordinary .fish, to propel it, it depends on Ita broad flna. These it flaps slowly up and down, and.so the animal goes fiy- hig through'the -water .as a bird does through, the air. But they sldm along quite rapidly, and when alarmed they quickly disappear. Standing recently on a pier at a town, in Florida I saw a number of these rays swimming about.' gome of them were secured by throwing H harpoon, into them. They are beauti- f u-lly colored,' being blue block or brown above,'with numerous round pearly ppots. These rays do not lay eggs, but produce living young, and the newly-born, young aro of considerable size, a foot t>r more broad. Some of the relatives of this ray reach R, large size.' Out in ihc'gulf one may,, pow and then see a ray perhaps five or more fcet.wide, leaping from the water and flapping his fins like, a great bird., Ones species attains a width of 15 or 20 feet, or even more, and is one of the ani-. mala that have been, honored with the. title ot "devil fish." i"orpol»e« Among th« Salmon, In Alaskan waters porpoises prey upon the salmon that come in from the sea to ascend the rivers in the spawning season. The salmon .may, be in a great school cumbering thou- sandsj the porpoises in a bunch o. perhaps a dozen or twenty. The porpoises separate in pursuit as though fhey had divided the school'off and allotted it among themselves. The salmon is a fine^wimmeri the.porp^sea better one.ond inuchbigger.

A DISGUSTED DEMOCRAT. •William GuvlU'ii Scorching Arr»l(tnra»nt of the Bryan Democracy. Mr. William Gavitt, a prominent Democrat cf Evansville, has written the appended letter: Lew Wallace, Esq., CrawfordRville, Ind.: "MY DEAR GENERAL— STou ask me it the platform adopted in Chicago pleases mo. It does not. It was controlled by master mechanics of mischief. I never knew that the devil had so many advance agents. It has convinced many that snob Democracy.means destruction. They have built and will build, mountains of misery, notwithstanding the heavyweight liars to be sent out to deceive the people. The 'silly' season opened when that convention waa called to order and will end with the dot? days. Apparently, they are determined to sandbag the fair name of this country, It is a monstrosity 'and the most un- american thing in ' America. We can learn from it that all the enemies of thi? country aro not across the water. I have often heard it said that in times of war the enemies of this country were in the Democratic party. I am sure that rn times of peace they are in the Democratic party, and I hope that the party that upheld this country in war times will do so now. Senatqr Hill, who has repeatedly said, 'I am a Democrat,' was permitted to speak, bnt was not allowed to preside over the convention. Such 'men as Whitney and As- sistent Secretary Hamliu were ignored. Did you notice that . Hon. Charlea S. Fairchild, ex-secretary of the treasury (the purest man I ever met in politics), obscured himself? "I never thought that Democracy would be controlled by anarchy. What a cantankerous convention! What a blue-ointment crowd! Hip pockets quart size, hats .5^,.. boots No. 01 If Mr. Bryan is all right he got mixed with bad company. • Jesse Jamea' spirit must have controlled them. Their policy is a dagger to assassinate the prosperity of this country. I- believe in honest money because they don't. I never knew the Democratic, party to be opposed to honest money, and ns.they have no candidate before the people I will vote for MoKinley. No man has more brains or more heart than McKinley. • . J ;: "' "There is no longer room in the Democratic party for a soldier or a" soldier's son, and if I am to believe Hopkins, Democratic ex-Mayor of Chicago, there ia no room for a Mason. I have lived to see the day that the flag was trampled inthe mud in Boston,. on the fourth of. July by Democrats— the flag hauled down in Honolulu by Democrats; to see a man .who helped take the remains of your friend, Smith Gavitt; my father, from the battlefield robbed of his decor- tion of ..honor (his, pension), .without a trial and, without a .warning, I , have .lived' to see .the day .that a man recognized as the enemy, of honest labor and described in labor's own writing • as having' all the bad bad and none of the good -qualities of the devil-ra slav.odriver at heart, an enemy of, the poor— :appointed ; to one of the best offices in the ^laud. , They .have tarried' merchant'.' princes into -paupers, Billed mechanics into. tranips, nailed up the factory doors and now want to force : people to sleep in the "parks 'and moke soup, out of their hnderware.'

I believe McKinley can, and .will do., , . : . . '•'•'• '(3AVITT. " . A Million J*«n«lon» Threatened. . Before the campaign is" fully opened, before 'the Popocrat candidate has been officially nonnea oy tne repucnanoniscs of half a dozen states that they aro with him, he finds himself confronted by one great army of solid citizens. The first call of a veteran soldier to tho men who wore the blue to organize once more in defense of their country and to fight down the attempt to despoil its honor was answered by 100,000 loyal voices. While the forces of fraud and repudiation are gathering strength, almost 1,000,000 voters will bo in line to resist' them on one issue alone. For not only their country's honor bnt their own rights this army of veterans is contending. For their heroic services in the field, or for services of their fathers or husbands, this grand army of pensioners receives, not as a gratuity but as a right, pay from the union that they helped to preserve. • The silver mine owners, deadbeats and rebels would cut this pay down.one half. For tho 100-cent dollars in which pen sions aro paid the enemies of the country would substitute 58-cent dollars. By the time the savings bank depositors, the life insurance policy holdiers, the building and loan associations and the benevolent organizations are enrolled with the war veterans for the protection of hearth and home it is.difflcnlt to ,sness. where, except -in the sage-brush and among tho white trash of the south, the votes for Bryan and repudiation are to come from. It is estimated there is as much silver in the hills of Colorado as there is anthracite coal in tho mouritains-pf Pennsylvania. There is certainly as much justice and commerical honor in opening the mints to the free coinage of coal as there is that of silver. Free coinage of silver will, on account of the bonanza profits to the mine owners, stimulate production so that the white metal will eventually decrease in bullion value. Itis possible to mine aa much silver as coal. If the government proposes to make .dollars out of all .the silver mined, regardless of.".market .values,- the. time is possible when silver and anthracite coal will bo on a parity. Lincoln's advocacy, of the protective tariff was condensed into one unanswerable paragraph. He said: "If I. buy 1,000 tons of .steel rails in England. I get tho .rails, and England gets, my money. If by an industrial policy. I can buy the .steel rails in America,-America has both the rails, and the money." This is the Republican policy. W.ith.it we will not have to sqnd our provisions to Europe to find employed labor to consume them. -. Private Joe Cheadlo in changing his politics could not erase some .of his familiar sayings', that linger in. the memories of the old mossbocks of his new- district. They propose"to oven up, for 'while he "spent four, years ,of his young manhooi in shooting;' at Democrats," they will be busy the next 00 days using Him for a target on election day. Let us' - all hope they may each hit.the"bull's- eye and lay' out the'renegade 1 for time .and eternity. .' ''".'.",'. ' ' . . As editor of tho Omaha World-Herald" Mr. Bryan seems to have devoted him' self almost exclusively to firing at Dem- cerate. In single leads and double leads, •yeek days, and- Sundays,, .he. riddled them'fore nnd aft. : And now the outlook is that that they;will be so busy pinking shot out of each-other .that they . will not have time to go to the polls. - in one'of his speeches .in'omgreus Mr. Bryan said that' 'A tariff, of. ,10 per 'cent' levied, purposely; for protection is, as far' as the principle is concerned, just as indefensible as a tariff of a thousand per. cent:'" . Bryan will not deny that! he 'is an absolute free trader; but, he prefers' to 'say nothing about it in this cam-, 1 paign. r*~ 4 "Judgment!!"

One of the leading physicians of Washington is smail of stature and very boyish in appearance, says the Star. A . lady entered his office the other <3ny, one of the bustling- sort of women who never quit talking, "Boy," she said, addressing: the physician, '"'is the doctor in ? But I can see he is not." "He is in," began the physician, but the visitor interrupted biro. "Oh, he's in, is he? Then he's en- pa#ed.> I'll -wait. Does he allow you to sit at bis desk that way?" "Madam?" "Oh, of course, yon would sny he does, but I'll warrant you'll catch it, if be sees you there. You look sort of pale. I should think the doctor would give you something, to make you stronger. Your ma ought to send you into the country.. That would make you grow. How soon do ^you" think, tho doctor will be disengaged?" 1 -'•• "Madnme, I tried to tell you before —I do not think you can ste the doctor to-day." "Well, I'll come next time I'jn in town.' -But you ought to quit staying in this office and go into the country. Not that it is any of my business, but I do hate to see boys look so pale end pun'y." She disappeared, and the doctor is wondering what she will say when she calls next time she comes into the city. . Smoking KULi Gormt. Smoking- is a preventative of disease, according- to a celebrated Viennese professor of chemistry. He estimates that the chances of a smoker catching diphtheria, smallpox, cholera or other con- tag-ious diseases,whose germs are in- JjaJeJ throug-h the throat and lungs, as compared to the nou-smoker, one in twenty-eig-ht. He asserts tbatsmoking tends to check the development of bacteria and kill thetnl It is well kriawn that smoking is forbidden by physicians and emplpyes.in laboratories given over to the cultivation nnd propagation of g-crms of different diseases for experiments. Smoke kills these minute organisms, end what applies' to a chemist's workshop applies equally to the human body. -. ' •;. , '•'_;.;:•"- . . . ; .." British Rale tbe Cabin.

Frotetior Figured Rlfbc, Bot Did Allow lor Error*. One night a young man in . hall at Tale undertook, with a. toy rifle, to hit a lamp. But his aim was pope, and the ball passed through the window of an eminent and venerable professor of science and imbedded itself in ihe wall. Thin was the opportunity, for the professor and for science, says the Hartford Courant. He,' too, 'set; tO"work and captured the curve, nnd with the exact skill of infallible figures he traced the bell right back to the room of an innocent colleague, who didn't even know tlie rifle had been fired. The unfledged minister fla«y denied all knowledege of the oflair. But men. even ministers, have been known to mak3 denials in sell-defense, and the prcfeesorlhad the-proof with him. There .was the bullet, there were the marks of its courst, and there was the comput*- tion-worked, outfit looked as if a pulpit career was to be nipped) ia the bud. But the guilty; student heard what was going on. H« called on tho professc-r, confessed the offense, pointed ont that tne.man 6f science was 200 feet out in bis compvja-- tion. and advised that the matter b» dropped right where it was.

It was a strange freak of; fancy to reproduce the quaint Chines*, design in ribbon, and would be strangcTj still if it "took" the popular taste. Auflj yet a few specimens of it may be seen; standing up in high loops on hats. Ribbon is immensely used DOW, especially, sntan, shot silk and the delicate chin*, crepon and soft silk, with misty flowers. Pretty fronts for wearing with the open coats are arranged with two. lengths of ribbon, from three to flvo inches wide, fastened to the neckbanfl T :md again at waist, forming a siroulateiii waistcont, with full lace or chiffon fiU-; ing-in between.
