TS-- Word "Star-ratio*."
Tlie word "starvation" was introdu.
ed into the English language by ll.
coiner, Henry. Duudao, nfterwlnd Vis
count Melville. . It was originally useii
by him in a speech, in parliament on
the American debate in 1TJ5 mid was
immediately caught up und applied n*
himself in a political nickname, so that
he was known thenceforward as "Star
vation" Dundas."
"I shall not," such was hia declaration, "wait for tlie advent of starvation from Edinburgh to settle my judg.
Before the time-of I>,undas "starve,'
"starving," "starved" and "starveling''
ware in use, but hunger or famine represented the state of starvation.
A'tlioiuili this word has now an cs.
tablishedi place iu our vocabulary, i-
was at fli'st vigorously opposed bj
many, and -_n just grounds, as of I 3
l.irid formation. The root '.'starve' I.
old English, while the ending, "ation,''
is Latin. It does net appear iu auy
English dictionaries until the year lSQU.

Ouecr W��T to Kill Flak.
Nativ.'S of the Torre:. strait have nn
original method of killing fish. In
places where turtles and large fish aro
wont to congregate they erect platforms, and as soon as a great turtle or
lish appears the man on the nearest
platform throw* a harpoon nnd almost
invariably strikes the animal. After
this is dono one of the other men Jumps
from his platform with a rope, which
he fastens around the tail of the captured fish. One end of this rope remains tied to a platform, and thus tbe
lish or turtle ls soon safely secured. It
Is likely, however, to plunge about a
good deal, aud therefore those men
who are within reach of tbe rope are
obliged to take care that it does uot
trip them up with it.
