CHANGES IN FISH LAWS.
The general amendment to the Fish
Code passed in the closing days of the
Legislature, has been approved by
Governor Sproul and takes the size
limit off the brook and brown trout
and limits the bag to 25 in one day.
The size limit and season are taken
off yellow perch, and they may be
taken by devices prescribed by the
Provision is also made for issuance
of special permits by the Commission-
er of Fisheries for devices_other than
seines for catching of fcod fish for
certain periods. These special per-
mits will be provided for by the De-
partment of Fisheries as soon as pos-
The bill laso provides for the use of
fines for violation of fish laws by the
department, which has authority to
make requisition for money as it is
accumulated in the treasury. The
Governor also signed the Non-Resi-
dent Hunter’s License bill. It pro-
vides a fee of $5 for such licenses.
Can Make Joiners’ Work.
Poor old Bill was a first rate wocd-
worker, but old age crept upon him,
and consequently unemployment. One
day he applied for a job at a big es-
tablishment, and was interviewed by
the overseer, who was well known for
his caustic utterances.
“Well, what do you want?”
“I want work,” replied the appli-
“H’m! And what kind of work can
“Well, sir, I can make all sorts of
“Then walk right in and start at
once! I've been trying for vears to
make all sorts of joiners work in this
place, and if you can get any work
out of them the job’s yours!”
Rains Cut Grape Crop.
Egg Harbor City, N. J.—The grape
crop in this vicinity, which ten days
ago promised to be one of the heaviest
in years, will be almost a complete
failure, according to some of the
growers. The dry weather during
June caused the vines to stand splen-
didly, but the constant heavy rains
and dews during the past ten days
have caused the rot to set in and al-
ready three-fourths of the fruit is
rotting away. Growers who were in
a quandary over what to do with the
expected heavy crop in view of the
bone-dry law suddenly find there will
be no cause to worry.
Candy is very scarce in England.
There is almost none at all for the
little children in the poorer quarters
of the city, and that which can be
bought is awfully expensive. A sur-
prise in the way of ice cream cones
seemed too pathetic. They weremade
in the accepted cone fashion, but the
cone itself was not more than two
and one-half inches high. It held just
a dab of queer-looking frozen yellow
stuff that was supposed to be ice
cream. But you should have seen the
joy on the faces of the two tiny chil-
dren fortunate enough to be licking
that cold sweet!

Passage cf Time Has Left Quaint Old
Welsh Town of Kidwelly
Kidwelly is a quaint old town In
It is a dreamy little commu-
nity set in snugly between broad
marshes and Carmarthen bay, and di-
vided by a curving river with an un-
pronounceable Welsh name. Old Kid-
welly lives largely in the past. It has
been the scene of battles and sieges.
It has a castle whose turrets and
round towers still. stand bravely, their
age kindly hidden by the vines that
It pretends to remember well the oc-
caslon of the Welsh princess who
stormed the town at the head of her
army. It tells the story proudly, a
| little sadly at the end, for the warrior
princess was executed by her enemies.
It is a dusty, unromantic climb to
the battlements, but the view from the
castle top is worth the trip. The
quaint, tumbledown houses at the foot
of the walls are a mere skeleton of the
old town as it was in its prime. Be |
yond them are marshy fields rolling °
away to the next village. Far below
is the river once thronged with ships
of trade that long ago deserted it for
richer ports. Its streets are almost
| empty, and its old-fashioned residents,
primly oblivious to new improvements
and styles of architecture, testify loud-
ly to its age.
TRIPS MADE BY MAYFLOWER
Famous Vessel Continued Voyages
Long After That One of So Much
There is matter of interest to May-
flower descendants, and Americans in
general, in the recent discovery of let-
ters written some 250 years ago by
John Eliot, the “Apostle to the In-
dlans,” to his friend, Rev. Joseph Han-
mer of Barnstaple, England. By these
old letters it appears that the May-
flower continued making trips to Amer-
ica, and that very many Americans
nowadays might justly claim that their
forbears crossed in that famous W@s-
sel, although pot mentioned in Gov-
ernor Bradstreet's passenger list. The
Eliot letters, however, do not name
subsequent passengers, although they
indicate a billf-lading showing that
the Mayflower continued in the ship- |
Ding trade with New England and was
bringing ovef merchandise 30 years
and more a; the landing of the Pil-
grims. Inci ly the humorists who
have often asked how so much ancient
furniture could have come over in the
Mayflower are answered by the his-
toric fact that the good ship kept
coming and going.—Christlan Science
Salzburg lies on both sides of the
Salzach river, hemmed in on either
bend by precipitous mountains. A
large fortress overlooks it on the
south, from the summit of a perpen-
dicular rock, against which the houses
in that part of the city are built.
The streets are narrow and crooked,
but the newer part contains many open
squares adorned with handsome foun-
tains. The variety of costume among
the people is very interesting. The in-
habitants of the salt district have a
peculiar dress; the women wear round
fur caps, with little wings of gauze
at the side. I saw other women with
headdresses of gold or silver filigree,
something in shape like a Roman hel-
met, with a projection at the back of
the head, a foot long.
The most interesting objects in Salz-
burg to us were the house of Mozart,
in which the composer was born, and
the monument lately erected to him.—
Great American Historian.
In 1796, on the 4th of May, William
Frescott, the historian, was born at
Salem, Mass. When Prescott entered
the field of world history America had
vet to make her mark in that line.
Her historians had been imitative of
the European writers or hopelessly: in-
Prescott’s work was accorded im-
mediate recognition in Europe and he
was recognized as being the highest
in rank of all American historians. His
best-known works are the “History of
the Conquest of Peru” and the “Hlis-
tory of the Conquest of Mexico.” He
died at Boston on the 29th of January,
These are substances or results ob-
tained collaterally or incidentally in
the operation of a specific process, or
the manufacture of something else. In
hunting game fgr food the hide and
feathers are byproducts. In ginning
cotton the cottonseed is a by-product
which for many years was regarded as
a waste. Now it is used in the making
of cottonseed oil. In the manufacture
of lumber, sawdust is a by-product;
| coke is a by-product in the manufac-
| ture of gas, but not the only one in
| the process.

*G (NSURE AGAINST POVERTY |
Writer Is Confident That a Practical
: Scheme Will Be Worked Out
Before Many Years.
Sickness is an insurable risk and
there is no doubt that some very com-
prehensive and acceptable scheme of
insurance against it will yet be worked |
ont. Whether, in the United States, !
it will be a compulsory, state-managed
scheme is by no means so certain. But |
the more that subject is agitated the |
faster sickness loss will be reduced, |
for agitation will direct attention to |
public health, and means that are |
tried and proved will be more exten- |
sively employed to prevent sickness.
Steady, intelligent public attention |
is what the whole problem of poverty |
needs. There is no doubt that a |
great part of it is preventable. The |
poor, it is true, we have always with
us. Time was when we had always |
had slavery and smallpox with us. |
Now out of half a million persons one |
person dies annually of smallpox in |
the United States. Time was when |
slavery and smallpox were generally
taken as a matter of course. As soon |
as they ceased being taken as a mat-
ter of ‘course they were put into the
way of practically disappearing—not |
by any magle formula but by tireless, |
sure-footed, practical-minded effort.
At length we have the means of re-
ducing poverty to its practical, irre-
ducible minimum. It is only very re-
cently, as history runs, that we have
had those means. But now we have
the wealth—not enough wealth for a
limousine and a grand piano to every
inhabitant and a four-hour workday ;
but enough for the essentials of decent
physical existence to every family.
We have the social and industrial or-
ganization and the body of scientific
knowledge. Poverty Is a social loss
and a social danger. We can take out
an insurance policy against it.—Will
