The jcwfish abounds on both the coasts of Florida and in tropical seas. The jewfish is frequently found in tho deep holes and channels in the salt water inlets. Tho specimen we illustrate, says tho Scientific American, weighed about three hundred and fifty pounds, and was captured near Tampa bay, Flu., by Mr. II. Uomford. Tho huffe fish after bcinfi- harpooned twice c.nd wounded in three places on the head with a hatchet, lived two days, and was finally butchered and sold. It required the services of three men to land tho fi.sh, and they worked an hour THE JEWFISH. and a half to accomplish It. Specimens of jewfish huvo been captured which weighed over five hundred pounds. It is said that eVon the largest jew fishes arc g-ood eating, the Cubans considering 1 them a great delicacy. Some of the stories related of the strength of the jewfish arc very remarkable, and it is said that boats have been towed out to sea by this fish. The jewfish will often break hooks and lines which are strong enough to capture a pood sized shark. Mullet bait is usually used in catching the jowfish. This fish frequently floats on the surface of the water, apparently asleep, and is sometimes shot instead of being harpooned, Tho jewflsh is probably tho largest food fish known. Mourned by Ilia Dag. One of the sincerest mourners at the grave of the late Prince Estcrhazy was his doff Nero.

For some days Nero could not be induced toleavo the grave, and he has since paid daily visits to the tomb. Sooth C»rollna'« BlowInR Welli.

Early Stnrn* «'f » Very I'rolltnlile Indmtry til tho United Stilton. Tho fields are nil fenced in with wire netting with two-inch meshes, and from the surface, in which it is securely embedded, it rises to a height of ton feet. In tlio summer-time one can hoar the musical "peeping" of the little fledglings, ami tho answering "clucking" of the mother hen, with an occasional cry from the cocks in the breeding pens as something startles them. The noise they make sounds like the first tentative efforts of a young rooster, except that whereas tho latter Jlaps his wings and crows afterwards, the former "drums," and then sounds his note. In drumming they move their wing-s so rapidly that they seem liko gauze. The laying season begins about the middle of April, and before that timo all the birds that are wanted for this purpose aro caught from tho open fiold, where they have run all winter, and put in huge pens. Those aro eighteen feet square, or thereabouts, and aro arranged in one large rectangle, with alloys between each alternate double row, so that access can bo had to them through doors or gates left in tho wire meshing for that purpose. Tho corners aro darkened with waterproof hoods smeared with a disinfectingmix ture, as indeed is everything about th< place. These retreats are for the bird to lay under. The pens being in an apple orchard, the leaves afford shade and worms and InrviD also, for the insatiable crops beneath. Clumps o grass are left to grow about in spots tho rest of the ground being loosenc 1 to encourage "bathing" and scratch ing. Five hens are put with one cock and unless they do not gi>t along wel together, tho family is not disinte grated until the end of the season— and not then, for all aro kept in oni field. Birds one year old aro preferrei for laying, the older ones being sol< off to preserves where they will be loss confined. Two or three years in sucl small quarters make a difference their powers of propagation, but the; recuperate rapidly in the woods. Grea care is exercised in choosing healthi birds, but if a weak one should be dis covered—and they are rare—his nock is wrung on the spot, for Mr. I)e Gulso has no hospital for contagious diseases. Sickness, to reiterate, is no1 frequent enough to require one. The manner of catching the birds to put in the pens Is simple. They are driven into a largo box, commodious enough to allow two attendants to got inside comfortably, with the top and sides covered with bagging to prevent injury to the captives in their efforts to escape. Wide "wings" of wire netting extend out into the fiold from tho entrance to tho box, and when a man is sent to walk slowly towards the birds all within tho radius of the wings run widly to thoir fate. They do not try to fly unless startled, but thoir legs carry them along very fast. Once in- sido thoy aro handed out one- at a timo to have a wing clipped. Even in this condition they make strenuous attempts to fly when alarmed in the pens, turning ludicrous somersaults ill the air, only to come down unceremoniously and try again. The average hen will lay about forty eggs in tho interval from the bcginnin of tho season to the middle of .luly, when it is practically over. During this period the birds aro fed twice a day—in tlio foi-cnoon on a mixture of cracked dog-biscuit, meal and pulver- ixed oyster shells, softened with milk, and in the afternoon the diet is changed to grain. With the appearance of the first eggs attendants begin to go around in the late afternoon, near sunset, with flat-bottomed baskets in which to collect them. This is dono every day, as regular as clockwork, for tho hatching is not dono by tho pheasants, but by common barnyard hons. Several weeks before the first eggs are laid tho farmers in tho neighborhood tire notified that sitting hens will be needed at tho pheasantry, and soon after All-Fools day they begin to bring in all their surplus stock. These aro purchased at market prices and confined in ventilated boxes arranged in tiers inside tho barn, the hens being satisfied to sit on porcelain eggs until needed for actual utility. When the pheasants have supplied enough eggs, tho work of putting tho latter down is begun. Back of tho barn, on a gentle slope, are long rows of oblong coops, each one consisting of a closed box with a removable lid for the nest, and a diminutive yard a few square feet in area for tho hen to exercise in. This is enclosed by wire netting, and provided with a separate drinking pan of earthenware. From fifteen to eighteen eggs arc set in each nest, the number depending upon the size of the hen, which may be a bantam or a Plymouth Rock. When sho is very largo she may take twenty, for they are smaller than her own, .light green in color, and so rich that only their ex- ponsiveness precludes their coming into general use for salads and mayonnaises. Each one is tested to sco that it is not cracked, and the date of the sotting is marked on the top of the nest-box. Tho period of incubation is twenty-four days, and should, in tho daily inspection, any hen show a dis-. position to shirk her duties, she is promptly disqualified, and another is substituted. But generally they aro assiduous, und remain nt thoir posts till tho end. When tho young birds begin to appear, before the ilrsi', of June, tho constantly increasing duties of the attendants reach their maximum. Every evening the coops aro examined to collect tho little peepers, from whence they aro transferred in baskets to ono of the enclosed fields, in which light wooden coops aro sot down in regular rows in the grass. Around each of them is a little space fenced in with boards, and while the foster-mother is secured inside, the chicks can run out between the slats Into this yard. By the *lme they have become strong enough to lean the low walls of the prison. thoy have also learned to know tno "cluck" of their protector, and where to como back at nightfall. Six times a day they are fed on a sort oi custard, made of cracked pheasant eggs and milk from which the whey has been expressed. When two months old they uro trapped and removed to another field, having no further need for the shelter of their mother's wings. The number of feedings is prraduiilly reduced in the mean time to three n day, ind the food becomes more substantial by tho addition of grain. They grow wilder every day, and it is difficult to (jet more than a momentary glimpse of them as they dart through tlio grass, rustling tho blades liko a summer breeze. By October tlio early birds liavo attained to full growth, passing the winter undisturbed and with need for little care. Tho only .discomfort they undergo is in the traps when their wings are clipped.—Llarper's Weekly. A FINE SHOT. Story of the Town Alurrthal nnd tho Terror of thu Gulch. The crowd around the hotel stove was listening to the tales of a few hardened liars, when a man in a slouch hat, wearing his hair long, projected himself into the conversation. "That last story," ho said "reminds mo of an experience 1 once had in the west, before it had reached its present civilization. I was living in a mining camp out there, and my next door neighbor was the terror of the gulch, though that wasn't his name. I got along with him very well until it came my turn to bo town marshal and then he began to be ugly, and, gents, when that man got ugly, there wasn't a pretty spot on him. Well, there was a good-looking girl in tho town, and the Terror and me had our hopes sot in tho name way, and the girl wasn't saying which one was favorite. You know women have that way sometimes. Tho girl wasn't only a good-looker, but sho was the best shot in the place, though the Terror disputed tho point with her sometimes. Things went on smooth enough, till one day tho Terror got tho idea that the girl was coming my way, and then he went off and got full up to tho neck and proceeded to paint the town. I'd seen him that way more times than one, and it never bothered me any, for I kept out of his way, 'but being marshal it was my duty to preserve the peace, and though I was willing, as far as I was personally concerned, to let tho peace go to decay in this particular spot, public opinion wasn't, and I had to tackle him right in front of the girl's house and she stood by an open window and watched us. I went about it mighty careful, I can tell you, and the Terror took up an idea that I was afraid, and got bad right at the start. I don't know exactly how it como about, but the first thing I know we had our guns pulled and the girl was standing not twenty feet away, on her porch, with a. navy pistol in her hand ready for business. The Terror's pistol got caught in his clothes some way, nnd 1 got the drop on him, but my gun snapped and I thought my endhaxl come, for the man was wild and he had his gun on me in half a second after mine had missed fire. I shut my eyes and mado a jump for him, and just as I did two shots rang out, the Terror's pistol went whirling into tho air, and I had him bv the throat. What would have .happened to him I am not prepared to say, for I was twice the man he was physically; but nothing serious happened, for the girl was right onto us both with her gun. • 'Lot him up!" she yelled, as sho stuck tho barrel of the weapon against my head. '1 saved your life and you've got to save his,' i had sense enough loft to mind her, and then she made tho Terror get up and go along peaceably with mo to the lock-up. That night I went to see her and she told mo she had no notion of taking part in tho fight, for she didn't want to hurt anybody, or get hurt; but when she saw the Terror had me dead to rights, she knew something Had to bo done, and instead of shooting the mail, sha had got a bead on his pistol and shot it out of his hand before he could pull tho trigger. Under the cirumstitnces. gents," concluded the story-teller, "I call that iniddlin' fair shooting; leastways for a woman:" That point was conceded without debate. , "Of course, you married the woman who saved your life?" ventured a listener. "This is a true bill I'm giving you, gents," he replied, "and 1 must say that I didn't, though 1 tried to, hard enough." "The Terror didn't get her, did he?" The man smiled with a satisfied air. "Well, not exactly. She R-ot the Terror. Anyhow it looked that way to me, for about a year after that, he told me one night if 1 ever got as good a chance again to shoot him, he'd consider it a personal favor if I didn't nse a gun that missed fire."—Detroit Free )' re ss. HEROIC CURt FUK LtKKOST. Fljlmm Kubbml with a Native riant and Thou Sl-oiimcd Over a Hot Fire. The Talmud reads: "These four are accounted as dead—the blind, the leper, the poor and the childless." A singular fact in connection with the disease of leprosy is that, although this terrible scourge has stalked abroad throughout the known world, and has gathered its thousands of victims since tho earliest historic times, still, even under the searching glare of the light of modern medical science, no sure and complete remedy has as yet been discovered. A curious custom in vogue about thirty years ago among the Fiji Islanders was well known in Australia at the time. It soems the natives were wont to endeavor to cure the victims of leprosy by the smoke of the plant sinu- gaga (Excoccoria agallocha). Not even those who had been poisoned by handling- the deadly juice of this deadly plant could form auy adequate conception of the tortures endured and the heroism displayed by a Fijian who voluntarily submitted himself to trying tho cure of his leprosy by the smoke of the sinugaga. The patient, usually already half dead with the ravages of the fearful malady, as a last resort was taken to an empty house and stripped of every article of clothing. His skin was nibbed all over with the green loaves and he was then buried in them. A fire was kindled in the center of the room and a few pieces of the sinugaga wood laid on it. As soon as the black smoke began to rise the leper was bound hand and foot and a rope was fastened to his heels, by means of which ho was drawn up over the fire, with his head about fifteen inches from the ground. The door closed, his friends retired a short distance and the victim was left to shout and cry and. plead while suffocating from the intense steam and smoke. lie was often left there to endure this agony for hours, atid finally he fainted away. When his relatives considered it time to interfere, tho firo was removed, his entire bod3' scraped from head to foot, and gashes cut into the flesh, from which the blood poured in streams. He was then lowered from his uncomfortable position and laid on mats to await the rasult. In many cases it meant life and restoration to health, but in some cases the constitution, was not vigorous enough to endure the terrible ordeal, or the disease had gained too strong a hold upon the sufferer, and death released him from his tortures.—N.
