' The gulls were flying close to the water
when The Dispatch man rounded the

ton Joe, the boatman, said that was a good
sign for blnefish.
"They arways swim in schools," he said;
"blueflsh do, and when they are near the
surface they chase up the white bait until
we can see it jumping out of the water to
get away from their greedy jaws. That is
the gull's time for feasting. He flies down
and gobbles up white bait like a longshore

The spoon was a piece of whirling tin
similar to those used in trolling for pickerel,

filled and the boat went away on the other
tack it flashed over the water like a big,
bright fly. "We were in the. thick of the

For a lew dollars anybody may charter a

boatman, who knows their haunts and
habits, is secured, good sport may be relied

inferior to the tamer delight of the trout
angler when his reel is singing. Every
Pittsbnrger who has taken a two-pound
catfish outof the river with hook and band

thrill which passes from a live fish through
the live line into the fisher's hands without
the intervention of the dead rod.

men who declare that there are no game
fish but salmon, trout and bass, will have
occasion to amend their ideas after a half
hour's battle with a bluefish.
The gamest and strongest fighter of all
coast fishes is the striped bass, and as he
sometimes reaches a weight of 60 pounds and
as taken with the hook actually averages
from 8 to 20 pounds, no salmon fisherman
has cause to crow over the sportsman who
goes down to the sea with boat and rod and
comes back with a good catch of striped
bass. In surf fishing live menhaden make
the best bait, while in still fishing shedder
crabs are the most killing. Trolling for the
striped bass with a mechanical squid or
spoon is often successfully practiced, and
the device known as the silver lance is the
favorite when a rod and reel are ued.

begins. The big back fin can be seen cut

away, and the first thing to do is to pUoe
ourselves alongside it, which is not so diffi
cult as you might think the fish being by no
means shy, and will easily let us run within

SOME TIMELY ADVICE
Concerning; the Care of Disease Cnnsed by
Summer's Deadly Heat,
There is no season of the year when neo
ple are in more need of good, sound, prac
tical advice on the subject of health than
when tbe sun is shooting his burning rays
straight down upon our heads, sapping onr
strength and breeding daily pestilence. It
is not general and vague advice that they
want, but definite as well as sensible ad
viceplain directions as to how to get well
and how to keep well. It is comparatively
easy to tell a person that if he gets sicksuch
and such a physician will enre him for such
a sum of money. The physician may or
may not cure him, but in either case he is
called upon to pay out the money, some
times a small but often a large amount.
To tell people how to cure themselves with
little trouble and at slight expense is another
kind of advice altogether, and is to offer
them a true boon. '
In saving that for every disease that par
ticularly afflicts mankind at this dangerous
season of the year Fe-ru-na and Mau-a-lin
can be recommended as remedies that are
at once agreeable and absolutely safe to
take, and reliable and infallible in their
action, we feel conscious that we are offer
ing mankind just such a boon as is referred
to above. And in recommending these
remedies, we cannot but emphasize the
statement that the health of men, women.
anu cnnaren ana particularly tne latter
is in peculiar danger at this season of the
year. Colics and cramps, cholera morbus,
cholera infantnm, diarrhoea, dysentery and
levers are rampant during the heated
months, and they are especially violent and
dangerous when once they get started.
Those who are well cannot be too careful
ot their diet and habits in general, and
they will find that keeping their liver
in good condition and their bowels
regular, for which there is nothing better
than Man-a-lin, will greatly assist them in
keeping well. Should they be attacked,
however, if they desire to get well surely
and quickly, Fe-ru-na will enable them to
do it. In its curative work Fe-ru-na is
greatly assisted by Man-a-lin, which, in
health and in sickness, is a liver regulator
without an equal, and a gentle and effective
laxative. These two great family remedies
have met with such marvelous and unquali
fied success everywhere that it seems useless
to lurtber sound their praise. A trial will
satisfactorily demonstrate their remarkable
and reliable powers. Send to the Fe-ru-na

Letters from Florida in the winter are
abundant. Then, what of the summers?
Northerners insist upon believing that Flor

waste from Hay till November; that swarms
of gnats, mosquitoes, malaria, alligators
and snakes are everywhere; that the inhabi
tants are dull, indolent, existing on "hom

idea of education is confined to last year's
almanac, and social life, because of
the drowsy, enervating existence, nil
est "With what compassion he
'sighs for those who spend their summers
here, and pictures us roasting beneath a
torrid and remorseless heat. AH of which
unwise talk the Floridian hears with a
pitying smile, for he knows better. How
different are the facts! "When telegraph re
ports indicate extremely sultry days in the
North, Florida, en the contrary, has
pleasant weather, average day temperature,
according to the Signal Service reports, not
being over 70, while cool sea breezes sweep
across the land night and day. Always the
nights are cool and refreshing. We readily
admit that it sounds strange that the summer
weather of Florida can be pleasanfer than
farther North, and while it is 40 degrees
warmer in winter, actually averages 2 to '15
degrees cooler in summer than most places
North; but the reasons are apparent
Peninsular Florida juts down between the
Atlantic and the Gulf, constantly receiving
the salt sea breezes from the two great bodies

Florida differ from those of any and all
other States of tbe Union. The elevation

of the world, of North America, of the
"United States and Florida discloses the
fact that every portion of the State is within
75 miles of oceanic waters and affected by
winds from the Gulf or ocean.
CLIMATE TEMPEBED BV OCEAN.
No spot has an elevation of 500 feet above
sea level, and consequently its climate must
partake of an island in mid ocean. It may
be spoken of as the one Florida in all the
earth, and there is no other region or State
with which it may be paralleled. Then,
too, during the summer, daily showers cool
the air, making the climate not only bear
able but invigorating. The air, often hot by
the. thermometer, is always Iresh with tbe
constant breeze, and healthful with the
odors of the pine. The same register in the
North would be oppressive, debilitating,
and even the shady side of- the street un
comfortably warm, but in Florida when one
seeks the shade, if the last month is a speci
men, he does not know what hot weather is.
But at "midday iu the glaring sun
on, ye heathen deities, how we
sympathize with you. The sun then beams
down with all its force, but the Floridian
keeps in the shadows, and iu this lies the
secret of his comfort A quiet, undisturbed
vision of still life hangs around the noon
day hour, reminding one of Puritan life on
a July Sabbath, not a rustle of leaves or
whirr ot the insect world. The sun fills the
land with dazzling light The earth with all
her wealth of fruit and verdure seems wrapt
in languor, and the red roses and white
lilies sleep with her. The very dogs doze
dreamily in the sun, a few straggling bare
footed negroes shuffle by, an occasional
"Crajker" team lumbers along, Cracker and
oxen verifying their leuuUtiou lor velocity.
The streets are unenllved by busy traffic,
and in the supreme stillness we step along
quietly, and the boardwalks creak and seem
to say "Hush! we are weary, let us rest"
But this is midday, and the quiet surround

in Southern towns. The climate or some
thing fascinates. The big-hearted ways of
the people must be due to the stimulating
climate. There is a charm in existence.
Heartache is cured under the spell and
lovers' quarrels easily settled under the
influence "so tho folks say." The tourists
that come and go in the season are gone,
hotels are closed and we would expect to
chafe under monotony, but no, it is in the
summer season we meet the real South. The
busy wheels of agriculture are in motion,
orange groves, cotton and sugar plantations
are being worked, the colossal drainage of
the Okeechobee Company is giving employ
ment to hundreds, and the ceaseless social
spirit never seems to tire. This is the sea
son of home hospitalities, of picnics fishing
expeditions, baseball and cricket matches,
and pleasure par excellence is the delight
ful, exhilarating aqnatio amusement.
Florida is literally dotted with fresh water
lakes. In Orange county alone there are
over 600 lakes, big and little, varying in

Summer is the season of maturing vegeta

Heidelbeko. July 6. The university
is built in the center of what is known as
tbe old town and is a very plain and unpre
tentious structure, fashioned after tbe arch
itecture of hundreds of years ago, and now
quite inadequate to the needs of a great
university. Only a very few of the 1,200
students at present matriculated there can
be accommodated in the buildiner. but are
located in different portions ot the city, as'
are also many departments of study. The
library is well stocked with books, and con
tains many tomes, pamphlets and manu
scripts, curious and rare. A woman's de
partment has been added to the university
within the last few years.
Tbe ruin known as the "Old Castle,"
whose age is vcoeval with the city, or more
than 800 years, commenced by Budolph,
and still in a fair state of preservation, al
ternately the scene of many a battle be

The grounds are spacious and overgrown
with trees that probably mark 300 years, the
arches that span the approaches are beauti
ful and still intact, while the gnarled old
ivy that for 600 years has been striking its
rootlets into the old castle walks, and striv
ing to cover with its beautiful green and
bloom, the havoc that natnre makes, and
now reaches from its base up the many high
stories to its topmost tower; has become
almost a part of the wall itself, and seems to
form so many withes, often 6 and 8 inches
iu diameter, to bind the old wall together.
The banquet hall, the oratory or chapel,
and tbe nlace where the German Beichstag
met and the cellar are still intact, and
so are some few of the smaller rooms, but
most of tbem are in ruins, with trees,
shrubs and flowers growing from the win
dow sills. I could not count the rooms, and
would soon have been lost in any one of the
winding corridors, had I not hastened to
keep pace with our woman guide, who ex
plained each point as we passed it.
The castle is situated on a high bluff about
250 feet above the waters of the Neckar, of
which it commands an outlook for many
miles either way, and was a formidable out
post for the protection ot Alsace and Lor
raine, both of which belonged to Germany
200 years ago. These people, neither
French nor German, but possessing charac
teristics peculiarly their own; say, that as
it look them 200 years to become French, it
will take them 200 years more to become Ger
man. Such is the bitterness of conquest
engendered by tbe rule of foreign domina
tion. Millions of dollars have been spent by
French and German princes who have in
turn inhabited thhji old castle, fought their
battles, lived their little day, and have

The cellars of the buildine are still in a

considered to be the greatest wonder of the
place is the lower cellar, a room constructed
especially to hold it, known as the "great

went out to the islands for his
health from New York in February,
returned as passenger on the schooner.
Captain Travers told an American
reporter that just before he left the islands,
July 4, the natives captured a shark 18 feet
long. When it was cut open, a half barrel
of salt pork was found intact in its stomach,
beside a number of other articles which the
monster had swallowed. Mr. Miller also
had a shark story. Two months ago the
dead body ot a monster shark was washed
up on the beach at Abaco. Inside the huge
mouth was found a small barrel. It was
wedged so tightly that it would neither go
up nor down. In the barrel, tho head of
which was off, was found all the food the
fish had manased to get inside its teeth.
The barrel caught all the food, and the
shark starved to death.

The site Is near TJnlontown, and will be known
as Camp O. H. Rippey, In honor of the brilliant
soldier, once a member of the organization,
who lost bis life at Fair Oaks. The regiment
is ordered to report next Thursday evening at
10 o'clock, on the corner of Fifth avenue and
Liberty street, in heavy marching order and
fully equipped. Baggage will be loaded at the
corner of .New Grant street and Liberty on
Wednesday and Thursday. Lieutenants Davis

The Examining Board of tne SecondBrigade
meets at the Monongahela House at 8.30
to-morrow evening. All officers elected or ap
pointed since last meeting, some six months
ago, are exnected to be present for examina
tion, as officers will not receive their commis
sions until the report of the board is received
at division headquarters, and consequently
would not be paid in camp according to their
new rank. The board consists of the Colonels
ot the different regiments of the brigade, with
Captain James H. Mnrdock as Recorder and
the Brigade Commander as Chairman.
The new Eighteenth Regiment band, which
will accompany tha,t organization to camp, is
said to be first class in every particular. Mr.
Walter Arbogast Is acting as conductor, and
the f ollowine are a few of the principal must
clans, taken Irom the Great Western, Grand
Army. Moorhead & McCleave. and other bands
of this city: Messrs. Gnttridge. piccolo, Satz,

A member of the firm of Carnegie, Phipps &
Co. stated yesterday that Sheriff McCandless
would be requested to call on Governor Beaver
for military protection at Homestead if the
deputies sent up yesterday conducted them
selves no better than tbe first lot tried. The
gentleman also remarked that the firm wanted
an entire brigade called out in order to over
awe tbe strikers by nnmbers and settle the
matter as quietly as possible. No Pittsbnre
soldiers are desired, according to the opinion
expressed, as they might be in harmony with
the strikers. However, it is safe to say should
any order be issued by Governor Beaver, it will
be on the Ktghteenth Regiment alone, as the
calling out of an entire brigade would be
Trials by courtmartlal have practically
become a dead letter in this State. A captain
of one of the local companies has had the
papers returned to him during the past week
containing charges and specifications against
some of his men for absolute disobedience of
orders, and has virtually been instructed to
discharge tbe men and thus end the matter.
Under tee law of 18S7, which gives command
ing officers full power to dispense with tbe
services of subordinates wnere good and suffi
cient reasons forsuch actions can be produced,
the Major General and his brigade com
manders are impressed with tbe idea that the
expense and time necessary to hold courts
martial should not be incurred. Company
commanders merely waste their labors drawing
up charges, and should take note accordingly.
The companies of the Fourteenth Regiment
have been held back very- considerably this
year in rifle practice, on account of the Johns
town tour of duty. A dumber of men were on
the range at Baltsburg during tbe past week
and did some very creditable work. While It
Is nrobable the regiment as a whole will not be
able to qualify the same nnmber of men as last
year, yet it will not be far short of that nnmber.
Colonel Watres, Division Inspector of Rifle
Practice, expects this season to have the num
ber of marksmen. throughout tbe State reach a
total of 4.C00. Last season the number was
3,200, but several regiments are at work this
year which never paid any attention to rifle

'Save Tour Hair
BY a timely use of Ayer's Hair Vigor.
This preparation has) do equal as a
dressing. It keeps the scalp clean, cool,
and healthy, and preserves the color,
fullness, and beauty of the hair.
"I was rapidly becoming bald and
gray; but sifter using two or three
bottles of Ayer's Hair Vigor my hair
grew thick and glossy and the original
color was restored." Mel vin Aldrich,
Canaan Centre, N. H.
" Some time ago X lost all my hair in
consequence of measles. After due
waiting, no new growth appeared. I
then used Ayer's Hair Vigor and my
Thick and Strong.
It has apparently come to stay. The
Vigor is evidently a great aid to nature."
J. B. Williams, Floresville, Texas.
"I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for
the past four or five years and find it a
most satisfactory dressing for the hair.
It is all X could desire, being harmless,
causing the hair to retain its natural
color, and requiring but a small quantity
to render the hair easy to arrange."
Mrs. M. A. Bailey, 9 Charles street,
" I have been using Ayer's Hair Vigor
for several years, and believe that it has
caused my hair to retain ita natural
color." Mrs. H. J. King, Dealer in
