A Irlh Rttiry From Kanily Hook,
Eols aro cheap on Hnmly I look penin
irnlu just now. On last Weilnesilay, aft
er a terrilii; gale, old Johnnie Collins, a
clam iliggerof NavefinU Highlnmls, went
tlown to tho Ix-aoh to seo if any crabs
hail been washcil np. As ho came to
high water mark ho observed thnt tbe
eanil was fairly alive with oels. Tlicy
vurioil in length from 3 inches to 2 feet
nil were rilver eels.
Scattered among them were young
fresh water perch. The perch were dead,
bnt the eels were very tnnch alive. Ho
wont back to the village and told what
lie had found, aud the villagers catno
down to the beach with baskets and boxes
and barrels. After they had filled all
their receptacles the beach was still
covered with eels. They went back and
emptied their loads and rotnrned and got
more loads, bnt they didn't succeed in
making any noticeable reduction in the
number of tho eels. A number of men
got more than 100 poundB each.
Seabright and other villages on the
Sandy Hook peninsula also got a largo
numlier of tho fish.
Peoplo are at a loss to understand how
tho eels and fish came to bo on tho
beach. Both the perch and the silver
eels are fresh water fish and abound in
tho Shrewsbury river. Never before
havo they been known to be found on
the Mabcaeh. New York Sun.

covered tho wnole court of judicature
with a kind of silken rotunda, in its
form not nnliko the cupola of St. Pnnl's.
On inquiring for the person belonging to

Of all gewalogical curiosities the one
ipet forth below is probably tho oddest
a singular piece of reasoning to prove
that a man maybe his own grandfather!
Here it is: There was a widow (Anne)
and her daughter (Jane) and a man
(George) and his son (Henry). This wid
ow married tho son, and the daughter
married the father. Tho widow was
therefore mother (in law) to her hus
band's father and grand:tiiot'ior to her
own husband. By this husband sho bail
a son (David), to whom she was of course
(Treat-grandmother. Now, tho Ron of n
groat-grandmother must lie grandfather
or grandunclo to tho person to whom
his mother was or is great-grandmother,
but in this instanco Anno was great
grandniotlier to him (David), therefore

which aro of no mean order, are being
guided in one of tho largest brokerage
houses. Ha till displays his old charm
of dress, although his waistcoats are not
so stunning as they used to lie, and he
only changes his clothes once a day now.
He is really very well informed in ir
dustrial securities, aud one morning
lately ho sent a group f brokers ink
convulsions of laughter when he was up
pealed to by mi tqicrntor to go into a lit

And there was quite us much of truth

Saving For the Government-
Tho fervor of economy which recently

curred during tho Rounds administra

workshop had had a good deal of difll
culty in getting requisitions for supplies
filled. The amount of lead pencils ht
had called for had been criticised as ex
cessive, and ho put lti.i wits to work t"
doviso ways anil means to avoid clerki
carrying away thoso useful articles. He
made a rnlo that a clork should be issued
but one pencil at a time and that h(
should return the stump of his old pen
cil upon receiving a new or.e. Thin pro
cess was continued during a couplo ol
It nover seemed to occur to tho chip!
that a clerk could gather in stumps ol
pencils from bis friends, if ha were in
cliued to cheat tho office, and tho method
was regarded by its promoter as an evi

Finally, when his successor was np
pointed, among the effects of the offic
turned over to him wore two good sized
; boxes of stumps of pencils, each stum
! averaging legs than an inch in length.

It. may be objected that, although Gib
rnltar might be useless to us as against
Spain, it would still, in wartime, bo use
ful to ns as against nny other power. It
certainly might be useful to a very mod
ified extent. It is nevertheless a matter
of notoriety that Spain ardently desires
tn regiun possession of thf. fortress, and
it is scarcely conceivable that, unless wo
wero actually fighting for the protection
of Spanish interests, Spain would remain
rigidly neutral while another power was
attempting to expel ns from tho rock.
In order to secure the more or less ac
tive co-oieration of Spain tho other pow
er would merely havo to givo some se

possession of Gibraltar, she would hand
it over without charge to its ancient

Mho itlltl Wolf Klirprlttrcl.
A hunter and a wolf hud an interesting
mutual surprise party to themselves in
tho hills near Helena a few days ago.
The hunter, arrayed in a heavy wolfskin
overcoat, fur side outward, was exam
ining some traps set tho previous night.
He was stooping over one, rearranging
the bait, when there was a fierce growl,
and a heavy weight fell suddenly on his
buck, so that ho barely missed lieing
caught in his own trap. He managed to
shake himself free, and recovering his
feet found faring him a full grown buf
falo wolf. The wolf seemed qnito as
much surprised ns tho hunter, and they
looked nt eiuih other somo seconds lo
fore tho fight, which ended in the death

was fooled by the coat anil the hunter's
stooping position and mistook him for
