Fish with Tin Tails
QTE gigantic salmon industry
{15 attempting to solve one of
‘the mysteries of nature by at-
taching tin tags to the tails of sal-
mon, caught as they start to swim
out to sea, and offering a reward
for any salmon so tagged when it
returns in from two to seven years.
The object is to make sure that
salmon actually return to their
birthplaces after their mysterious
expeditions out to sea.
It is well known that the fish
are born in fresh water streams
fed by springs or the melting ice
of glaciers. Then the baby fish
travel down to the ocean and dis-
appear. Where they go, no one
knows, but, when fully grown, they
are supposed to return to the mouth
of the strcam where they were
born, and start back up the river
to spawn and die. The great sal-
mon fleets which await them an-
nually take up their positions at
the mouths of these rivers and
catch and can the salmon when
they are in the finest condition.
Make Marvelous Food
Mystery, or uo mystery, the sal-
mon is a marvelous food fish. Here
is a recipe for canned salmon which
has been tested and found tooth-

The afternoon sun was dancing on
the white crystals, but it was not
the dazzle of light which brought
the puzzled look into her eyes, or
knitted her brows in a slight frown
of perplexity.
Half a mile across those white
fields lay the homestead of Arthur
Birch. A tiny spiral of blue smoke’
spun -upwards from snow-covered
roofs, suggesting comfort and do-
mestic activities. Susie Birch, that
would be, Matilda reflected, busy
with her Christmas preparations.
Susie was fourteen now, and al-

In his gentle, inarticulate way,
had made his friendship plain to
her, and she had accepted it as
from a good neighbor and the hus-

it was not so easy to accept.
There were gossiping tongues, and
Matilda had caught some echoes

That was why a puzzled frown
farkened her eyes as she looked
across the white fields toward the

wondered if anything had reached

Carl, but now that Mrs. Birch is

Carl’s shoulders came back and
his jaw stiffened. “Have ‘people

them!” 2
His eagerness to spring to her
defense pleased her, but this was
not a matter in which physical
force could be employed. “No, that
would not do any good,” she an-
