A Boston  letter in  the Copper  Curb says: /  The   copper < metal market has  shown" great improvement during  the week, prices of all grades having advanced and the volume of  business having, increased rapidly.  At the moment transactions are  somewhat smaller  than they were  earlier in the week, but this is because   the   big  agencies   are not  anxious to sell at prevailing prices  and consumers are hesitating about-  paying the advanced  prices.    It is  estimated that there were not less  than  20,000,000 pounds  sold   for  April and May delivery during the  first two days, more  than   half of  which went to domestic consumers.    The foreign buying was on a  very good  scale,-a good part of it-  going to  London,   where  the demand for it is  better than it has  been for many months.  ���������   The most important fact brought  out   during   the   sveek   was   that  several of the large producers are  sold up to June and  they are not.  offering metal very freely even for  delivery in that- or later months.  They will  not'sell copper under  any consideration  under 13 cents  and   bids are  very close  to  this  figure nosv.    Sales of electrolytic  havo been made on  a  fairly large  scale at 12J, while Like  was sold  over 13 and the  demand  is  much  better nosv  than  it  has been for  some time for this brand.  As the fpeeifieations in the  hands of the leading copper and  brass rolling mills and electrical  engineering concerns call for the  consumption of 45.000,000 pounds  of all grades for!goods to be finished  before the first "of Jul}', it is highly  probable that the consumers will  be forced to advance their bids and  a much lighter level of prices svill  be the result in the near futuic. ���������  Taken as a whole then the outlook is much brighter nosv than it  has been for a Jong time and a big  improvement .is expected, and  those svho shape*.their course accordingly svill be the winners during the next six months.  Rock Creek, this week.    Tho shift  svill be sunk 100 feet this season.  The Trail smelter has coke  enough on hand to last for several  months.  John Finlay and son have secured a lease upon the Crescent  and commenced svork yesterd-iy.

To the  end of January the Nevada Consolidated produced 9,39S,11S  pounds and shipped 7,170,200  pounds, and the Cumberland Ely  produced 7,001,3Gf.) pounds and  shipped 4,064,148 pounds.  Ola Lofsrad and associates will  start their big tunnel into the south  belt as soon as they cau make arrangements svith the Garlands for  a dumping ground. They have  been negotiating for tsvo acres of  land, for which the Garlands ask  8300 an acre. This price the syndicate consider excessive, and work  .on the tunnel is therefore delayed.  The tunnel should add materially  to the value of the Garland holdings in the south end of the town  and in Anaconda.  Tho miues at Middlesboro aro  shipping more ceal than ever at  the present time. April promises  to be the record month iu the history of the company's operations.-  Frotn the 1st to the 6th, iticlusive,  103 cars were pulled out of the  eolleries. At this rate the total  shipments for April would amount  to approximately 16.000 tons. Dur-.  ing February and March something over IS,000 tons wero billed  out of the local yards.���������Nicola  Herald. . '__  A company svith the title of the  Fife Mines, limited, has been  granted a certificate of incorporation a4? a limited company with a  capital of ������2,000,000. The new  undertaking has been formed to  acquire the Fife, Dykehead No. 2,  the Ben Hur and the Three Bells  mineral claims, in the Grand Forks  mining district, near Fife, on the  Columbia aud Western railway.  Charles Dempster has succeeded in  interesting an eastern syndicate in  these properties.  J. A.

Before  returning north he will study  dredging conditions at Oroville on  behalf of associates interested in  placer ground on  the Fraser river.  Arizona's copper production for  February of this year is estimated  (o have been 26,500,000 pounds,  which.is at the rate of 31S,000,000  pounds a year. The fact, assuming it to be such, is an interesting  one. as it makes Arizona an easy  first on the list of copper-producing regions���������not alone of the continent, but of the world. The  chief contributors to the February  output were : Copper Queen, with  9,150.000 pounds; Calumet aud  Arizona, 4,000,000, and the United  Verde, witliover 3,000,000 pounds.  The remainder came from copper  mines over the Territory.  In 1907 the profits from precious  metals exceeded all dividends paid  by all banks in the United States.  The profits from copperrninesd,  ceedod air dividends "froiuall. railroads in the United States.' Sixty-  five per cent, of the carrying busi-  business of the nation originated  from mines.

" Pm-iiltMit LotiiH Hill of the  Greiifc Northern railway recently  svjote me nskiiig what amount of  coal we could supply daily/to th'  V., V. & E. . rail svay svhen ii  roaches Princeton.' I replied tint  we could ensure sufficient to meet  every requirement," says Ernest  Waterman of Princeton, ..ihauager  of tlm'Vermillion Forks Mining  an I Developineutcompany.  This company osvns tsvo square  miles of coal lands' adjacent to  Princeton. Six seams of semi-  bituminous coal described by the  Dominion geological survey as excellent for domestic and steaming  purposes, have been proved by  ineftnaof diamond drilling operations,   The company has iilroudy  feet of under-  24-foofc seam,  or slope has  been driven in for a distance of ISO  feet, and air shafts connecting svith  the surface have been opened up.  The main slope runs in on this big  ������cam, thirteen feet of which is uu-  derneath the lloor of tho working..  The various seams have a total  thickness of fifty feet. Mr. Mc-  Es'oy, late of the geological survey,  and nosv operating the Brauzeau  "coalfields in Alberta, estimated  that the one measure nosv partially  developed by the company, could  maintain a daily output of 400 tons  for 260 years.  This coal is nosv being used at  Princeton and at other points  throughout the Similkatneen district for domestic purposes. It  sells at th mines at $3 a ton. Further development work svill bo delayed until the V., V. & E. tracks  nosv at Keremeos, reach Princeton,  probably late next fall. Arrangements have been made for laying  the rails shortly on the graded portion of the route betsveen Keremeos and Hedley.  Mr. Waterman is (on fid en t that  he will be able to furnish coil for  all the tosvus easterly as far as |  Spokane as soon as the rail svay is  extended to Princeton. He also  foresees possibilities for competing  in Vancouver once tho same road  has bi'en extended over the Hope  in mutains. Coal from the Princeton property has been successfully  used at the reduction plant of the  D.dy Mining company, southeast  of Princeton.  President Hill on a former visit  to Keremeos made a flying trip in  his- automobile to Princeton in  order co .examine the coal areas.  The coal is said to run over 50 per  sumption. On tho whole, then,  the market is no worse oil than it  svas at the first of the year, though  a posverful element lias apparently  gained control and pub prices losver  than is warranted by conditions in  general."

HOPE JONES TALKS  Noted  Lecturer Addresses  the  Citizens of Blackberry Corners.  AND   MAKES HIS  USUAL  HIT.  Thanks Audience of Seven Persons For  Their Unbounded Enthusiasm as He  Brings His Remarks on "Niches"  i-.o a Close.  ��������� [Copyright, 190S,by T. C.McClure.]  kELLOW Citizens of Blackberry  Corners���������After a svulk of fifteen miles along the railroad  tracks I arrives] here this afternoon and lot It be knosvn that 1  ss-oukl deliver my lecture' in this school-  house this evening. There is present  by actual count n large, intelligent and  impulsive audience of seven persons,  and I thank you for turning out en  masse as you havo. It sliosvs the popularity of tho rostrum over tho husking  bee. .. . ,  "The subject of my lecture is 'Niches  ���������Find Your Niche and Kit into It.'  This lecture  has  been delivered  over  "THE SV33JEOT OP MyiiECTUBE IS 'MCEXS.  1,000 times to vast audiences, and President Roosevelt said of it only two  weeks ago, 'If 1 bad nothing else to  do I should like tosit and hear it over  and over again for a hundred consecutive nights.'  '���������Ever since I svas old enough to oal  pudding and milk I have contended  that every human being born on this  earth was born to fill a certain niche  and-that thero aro always plenty of  niches lying around loose. The longer  1 live the stronger grows my opinion  that this is so. The only trouble is to  find your particular niche and find your  mark on it.  "If I should ask this cultivated and  expansive audience who Shakespeare  ss-as it svould feel insulted. All the  world knows of him. He svas the first  man in the world tosli'ng the English  language into such shape that a fellow  could go to the grocery and make tlie  grocer understand that he wanted two  pounds of sugar instead of a bar of  soap. Shakespeare was a long time iu  finding his niche. He tried farming  and poultry and gardening before he  struck his gait, but svhen he finally  did ho had the sense to stick to it and  make a success. Literature ss-as his  niche, and he filled it up to the neck.  He also filled us up to the neck svith  proper English. Until his time the  husband who got up in the morning  nnd found his collar button gone  couldn't holler for his wife and do justice to the occasion. He had to staud  and jump up and down and express  himself in a conglomeration of languages, the only word of which the listening neighbors could catch on to was  'dammit.'  "Napoleon svas also a long time in  finding his niche. He sloshed around  and tried his hand at half a dozeu  things and then struck the right one  and begau to make the splinters fly. If  the.old man could have had his svay  he would have made the boy a cob-  . bier. Cai you imagine tlie great Bonaparte'pegging away at shoes or putting on cement patches? He came  aloug.to his niche one day, found that  it fitted him, and he went to work licking the whole world. His svas a fighting niche. -As a farmer he couldn't  have raised enough buckwheat to get  up a case of the scratches. As a poet  lie couldn't have earned his salt. As a  politician there are 10,000 men in this  country today who could have sidetracked him as easy as grease Something told him this, and he stuck to  bis niche.  Concerning Diogenes.  "I shall not ask you who Diogenes  was. You never met him, but you  ' have read all about him over aud over.  ���������Never was there a denser child, never  a bigger lunkhead of n youth, never  a greater doughhead of a young man.  ;It was said of him that ho didn't know  enough to pound sand. Up lo twenty-  five lie huug around betsveen his father's house and tho Idiot asylum, and  he was an object of p.";- to all. He  married a woman that trii'il tn wiio������������i-  some sense Into his noddle svith the  broomstick, hii*. It svas a failure, nnd  she returned to her father. I'm n-tell-  ing you that Diogenes didn't amount  to molasses svhen his niche finally  came.glldlng by and lie fell Into It. lie  s.tnrted out at being a philosopher  The world had never had tiny philosophy up .to that time, and It took to It  like a coon to n cornfield.  "Diogenes, without straining Ills bad;  at   nil.   went  around   one  day   svith  n  lighted  lantern.    When asked  svhy  he did  It  lie had  n  chance to reply  thnt   he   was   looking   for an   honest  m,m.

The   Way   Soma   of the "Stage   Feats  Are Accomplished.  When a champion rifle Bhot fires  blindfolded at a wedding ring or a  .penny held betsveen his wife's  thumb arid finger or seated back to  her shoots, by means of a mirror, at  an apple upon her head or on a fork  held in her teeth, the danger oi using  a'bullet is obvious. None, of course,  is needed. The explosion is enough.  The apple is already prepared, having been cut into pieces, and stuck  together svith an adhesive substance,  and a thread svith a knot at the end,  pulled through it from the "svings,"  so that it flies to bits svhen the gun  is fired, is "hosv it, is done."  Generally the more dangerous a  feat appears tho more carefully is  all danger guarded against. In the  "William Tell" act the thread is often  tied to the assistant's foot. When,  again, the ash is shot off a cigar  svhich the assistant is smoking a  piece of wire is pushed by his tongue  through a hollow passage in tho cigar,  thus thrusting off the ash at the moment of firing.  A favorite but simple trick is the  shooting from some distance at nn  orange hold in a lady's hand. Groat  applause is invariably forthcoming  svhen the bullet drops out on her cutting open- the fruit, it is inserted by  hand earlier in the evening.  Another popular trick is that of  snuffing out lighted candles. Half a  dozen are placed in front of a screen,  in svhich as many small holes are  bored, one against each candle wick.'  At the moment of firing a confederate  behind the screen sharply blosvs out  each candle svith a pair of bellows.  In most instances svhere a ball or  other''object has to be broken on a  living person's head blank cartridge  is used and the effect produced by  other means. A special svig with a  spring conceal in it worked by a  ss-ire under the clothes is generally  used, the confederate manipulating  the spring simultaneously with the  firing of the rifle. As tho ball is of  extremely thin glass, a mere touch  suffices to shatter it. _        :  In these exhibitions some of the  rifle "experts" invite gentlemen from  the audience to testify that the  ss-capon is indeed loaded. The cartridge shown looks very well, but it  is a shell of thin wax blackened to  resemble a leaden bullet. It would  not hurt a fly.  London Graphic'on the G.T.P.  ' A descriptive article of more than  passing-interest, and svhich should  prove of inestimable .value, appears, in  ithe London Graphic of December 19,  '1908. Under the caption, "Girdling  the Earth with an All-Red Route,"  some salient facts and features of  the building of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway are depicted with pen  and camera. Touching on the importance of the All-Canadian Transcontinental as a connecting, land link in  the all-red scheme, the svriter' proceeds to show the important part the  nesv road is taking in the opening up  and development of ��������� a nesv and immense area oi country, rich .in natural  resources.  What svould probably' be of, oven'  more interest to the readei* of The  Graphic across the seas, arc the excellent viesvs svhich accompany the  article, which shosv the first land-  seekers' excursion train, a glimpse of  the tosvn of Rivers and.of Nokomis,  and several interesting scenes in and  around Prince Rupert. Tho viesvs of  Prince Rupert and harbor aro particularly good, showing the svestern terminus of the Grand Trunk Pacific to  be most charmingly situated and already making a pretentious shosv  of becoming the important centre  svhich it is destined to be.  The article which The Graphic produces svill no doubt bring a clearer  realization to many distant readers of  the immense strides in railway building that is taking place in Canada today and of the unlimited possibilities  of capital and labor , in producing  svoalth in this great country of ours.

At the time of his-inarriage four  years ago to a penniless beauty, Mr.  Robert Goelct, the only brother of the  Duchess of Roxburghe, svho has purchased an estate in France, as a permanent residence in Europe, was the  richest bachelor in America. His nesv  residence is situate by Meru Oise,  and is knosvn as Sanricourt, the compact old feudal domain of the de  Beauvoir -family. The price paid to  the mortgagees was $300,000. For nearly twenty years the late ossmer, Mar-,  quise Ludovic de Beauvoir, existed in  a state of penury. He was knosvn  to borrosv from his tenants, who secured their advances by allocating to  themselves portions of the land. The  consequence was that, through the.  non-repayal, the tenants became the  holders.of large tracts, and it is expected that to buy out the tenants  Mr. Goelet svill have to pay an enormous figure. As soon as it svas decided to sell Sandricourt a debtor, who !  had a bill of sale on tho Louis XVI.  furniture there, covered svith gorgeous Bcauvais tapestry, belonging to  the grand salon, removed the costly  suite from the house, and threatened  to sell it up, as well as many of the  (���������ther historical treasures of the  princely dwelling.  Wood as Food.  In one quarter of the earth, at  least, wood, in a certain form, serves  as a common and constant article of  diet, and that is the northern coast of  Siberia.' At several points the natives  eat wood, and'eat it because they like  it. Even when fish: is plentiful, svond  usually forms part of the evening  meal of these natives, as testified by  numerous travelers. Cleanly-stripped  larch logs near every hut in that re-1  gion are silent witnesses to the general fondness for ss-ood diet. The dish  is prepared by scraping off thick layers' immediately under the bark of  the log.: These are chopped fine and  mixed svith snow, the whole being  boiled in a kettle. Sometimes a little  fish roe, milk, or butter is mixed svith  the wood.  WHAT   IS   HERBAGEUM.  Herbageum (Registered) is a vitalizing vegetable tonic and blood purifier free from all drugs.

Tt svas only the lucky intervention of a passenger, who caught  him, that saved him from a watery  grave.

It svas for  Christmas week, 1867, and it records  the salaries then paid to a number of  actors and actresses svhose names  commanded big money thereafter. The  star member of tho company in 1807  was J. L. Toole. He dresv $54 a sveek  for grimacing in a one-act farce, "The  Birthplace  of  Podgers."  John Sydor, the old Shakespearean  .ictor and stage-manager, got $37,  while Ellen Terry and Irving, as  Kntharina and Petruchio, received  ������25 . and $13.50 respectively, and  thought themselves lucky.  Charles Wyndham's svage was $15.  Lionel Brough existed on $10 a sveek,  and Miss Heath (the svife of Wilson  Barrett) .played a small part at the  rate of $5  per  week. -  Actors then learned their track; in  the hard school of impecuniosity; they  couldn't afford to take holidays, "cut  a dash," or overfeed themselves. With  no social functions to svaste their time  over, they had a constant incentive  to work in the hope of climbing to  a summit of popularity, svhere $50 a  week asvaited them.

Trees  Producs   Returns   From  Other-  wise Waste Lands.  The benighted notion is still occasionally encountered that forest preservation means a stoppage <fi svood  cutting and lumbering. That is about  as accurate and sensible as it svould  be to suppose that the cultivation of  corn meant that no more corn should  be-cut ancl'husked. But even among  those svho knosv better, and svho  favor an enlightened forestry system,  there is not alsvays a full appreciation  of the pecuniary value of cultivated  svoodland.  . A sn-iter in The London Daily Mail  takes up this phase of the question  effectively. There aro in the United  Kingdom about 3 000,000 acres of forests. He estimates that there are  7,000,000 acres more of land which is  now svaste and which.could-profitably  be planted with trees at a cost of $15  an acre, or $105,000,000 in all, With  such an area .of 10,000.000 acres nearly 150,000 acres could be cut yearly  for 70 years before all was cut over,  by which time, of course, there would  be a 70 years' old growth on the land  svhich was first cut. The writpr  reckons the minimum value of the  product to be $350an acre in-70 years  making a total revenue of $50,000,000  a year from the 10,000.000 acres. Tn  addition, forests up to 60 years old  should yield $200, or $3.75 yearly an  acre, for "thinnings," which would  mean $37,500,000 for the 10,000,000  acres, raising the total yearly income  from that area of forests to $37,500,-  000, or $8.75 an aero.  That is not a large income from  land, though it is more than many  farms average But it would be an  income from land which otherwise  would yield none at all. There are  millions of acres of mountain and  swamp in Great Britain which are incapable of being put to any other  profitable use. On just that ground  of direct returns from systematic tree  culture and cutting, therefore, forestry is to be commended. On the other  hand, on the ground of the utility of  forest areas for the storage of rainfall  and the regulation "of svater flow, such  1 system is so indispensable that it  should bo established and maintained  en an extensive scale, even if there  was not a cent of nrofit, but an actnal  loss yearly on each acre.  Famous  British  Function  Was  Instituted by Lord Brougham.  The customary breakfast given at  the opening of the legal term by the  Lord Chancellor in the House of Lords  to about 300 guests is an institution  which goes back to the days of the  versatile Brougham. For the last 40  years it has been held.in the House  of Lords, but at an earlier date it was  given in the Lord Chancellor's 'residence. It is.a relic'of the times svhen  breakfast svas a great social function.  Many other great men had svhat  may be termed (the breakfast habit.  Thus Mr. Gladstone svas a regular  giver of breakfasts and a constant  attendant at them when given by others. .Of recent years, however, the  breakfast has fallen into desuetude as  a' social function, except at the universities, svhere' young men are still  found who are capable of consuming  three or four ��������� courses ��������� and the svhile  maintaining a genial flow of elegant  conversation.  Recently an attempt has been made  to -revive the breakfast. -Thus the  King in 1907, * at Newmarket, issued  sovoral invitations to breakfast parties.

A contribution, to their life story appears in the new number of The African Monthly," from the pen .of Mr.  C. C. Clements Vialls, who has been  trading,for some years past on the  Bochuana border, and has often come  into contact with these strange dwellers on the waterless . plain. Closely  resembling the Hottentot in color and  features, the bushmen are gifted svith  an abnormal amount of instinct, but  svith very little intellect. Their vocabulary is confined to some throe hundred svords. and is a serins of "clicks,"  like that of the Hottentot; but nol  ������von the Hottentot can understand  them.

It seems, on the  authority  of an  Australian naturalist, that the duckbilled   ornithorhynchus,   not   content  with outraging most of the fixed lasvs  of natural history, has to be classed  in one respect with the order of venomous snakes . In a case at Kempsey.  where  a  platypus  ss-as  caught  by  a  small  boy and  promptly clawed  his  captor,   Dr.   Casement held   that the  poison  which  entered tho boy's arm  ss-as identical ssvth snake poison.   Unfortunately,    however,    ihere    is   no  poison sac in the vicinity of the class-,  nor is there any ejection orifice. But  may not the platypus, asks the naturalist already referred to, be able fo  transfer 'poison   from   its  bill   to   its  claw?   That is the explanation some  bushmen give of the intense virulence  of a platypus wound.   Tho saliva of  enraged  animals   or   birds   is  often  poisonous.    It  is  not  retained  in  a  sac, or carried along a duct, as the  snake's poison is. but svhen it mingles  svith human blood it produces many  of the effects of snake bite.

Mrs. James H. Ward, Lord's Cove,  N. B., says:���������"About two years ago  I suffered so muoh from nervous prostration that I was little batter than  a helpless wreck.     I suffered   from  headaches and a constant feeling of  dizziness.     The least unusual move  svould startle me   and set my heart  palpitating.Violently.   I had little or  no appetite and gresv so sveak that I  svas hardly able to drag myself about,  and could not do my housesvork.   In |  every way 1 was in a deplorable condition.   As the medicine I had been  taking seemed to do me no good, my  husband got a supply of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills.   I had only been taking  the Pills for a couple of sveeks svhen  I seemed to feel somesvhat better and  this encouraged me to continue the  treatment.   From that on my strength  gradually but surely returned, and in  the course of a fesv more weeks I svas  once more a svell woman, able to do  my osvn housesvork, and feeling better than I~had done for years. I have  since remained svell and I feel that I  osvc  my good health to the  healing  posver of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."  Every other sveak, sickly, svorn out  svoman should follosv the example of  Mrs. Ward and gis-e Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills  a  fair trial.    These Pills  er shown a trace of svinter damage in  any   year,    'liiey    comoine    extreme  hardiness  svith  a    pioiiuc      fruiting  nabit.

The Hippophae is a strong growing . -  [shrub, svun small foliage ol a silvery  green color, anu yeliosv, minute fiosv- "'  ers, succeeded by bright orange color-  eu fruit,   'lhe fruit is larger than"the  currant ana is easily" picked.-   .While  it might not be ruhsneu by every one,  ���������.  to   most  people   the  fruit   svould   be  con=itlereu highly palataule and pleasant. The shrub is uioeeious in bloom,,.m  some oi the plants    piouuciug   only  male blossoms and others only female  blossoms.   It is therefote necessary to  plant a number of tne shrubs iu proximity.    Osving to extreme haruiness  this plant promises to be of. considerable value in the Prairie Provinces.  It is  also  useful  as  an    ornamental  shrub,  and  may   be  used for-hedges,  or screens  svith good effect.  The   Bowels   Must  Act   Healthily.���������  In most ailments the lirst care-of-the  medical man is to see that the bosvels  are open and fully ��������� performing their  functions.

An amusing story is told of a visit  which Sir Samuel Wilks, the distinguished physician, svho has recovered  from a serious illness, once paid to a  friend svith a small suburban practice. He sat svith his friend svhile he  received his patients, and noticed on  a shelf behind several bottles of physic, all but one of svhich he recognized by their technical names as  harmless concoctions. The bottle  svhich puzzled him was labelled  "A.O.T.". Sir Samuel took it down  and smelt the colorless fluid contained.in it. "What, in tho name of goodness, is this?" he asked. "Oh, that,"  replied the friend, carelessly, "is 'Any  Old Thing'���������svarranted to cure imaginary complaints.  THE SEA BAT.  One Way.  "Of course you know how to say  cutting things in company without being openly Impolite?"  "No, mother.   How?" '  For Women Who  are Discouraged  Because of lingering , weakness and i  norvous derangements there is new  hope and cure.  The letter quoted voices the experience of thousands of women who  have found health and joy in the  use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.  The Christian Scientists are undoubtedly right. To some extent. The  mind does influence the body both in  health nnd disease nnd if you give-up  hope, leave off treatment and fall into discouragement and despondency  there is little reason .to expect that  good health svill force itself upon you.  You must do your 'part if you are  going to get strong and svell. You  must make up your mind and then  select rational treatment.  If your system is sveak and run  dosvn, your blood thin and watery  and your nervous system exhausted,  choose a treatment such as Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food, ss-hich has never  been equalled as a moans of building  up. H'enlth, strength and. vigor.

Specimen of a Fish That Is Both  Queer and Rare.  One of the rarest specimens of the  Osh kingdom known to waters contiguous to the North Carolina coast  was captured In a seine at Masonboro  sound by William Hewlett, a fisherman, says the Wilmington Dispatch.  The fish, 'which was brought to the  city, is what is called "the sea bat,"  and It Is a perfect reproduction of n  leather wing bat on a large scale. The  fish is about fifteen Inches long and  about thirty, inches across the back. .  Strange to slate, it had a thin,  threadlike tall about fifteen Inches in  length, and on each side of the rear  appendage were two perfectly formed  gloved feet, with n smaller dimension  having the exact appearance of a  thumb svith the other part of the hand  mlttcned. ��������� The mouth of the strange  specimen was about five Inches across,  and on each side of the tnoutb or the  underside of the body there were five  "strainers," or holes, through which  the fish is said to rid Itself of refuse  products resulting from the forage II  picks up at the bottom of the sea. The  top of the fish was n dark slate color,  and the under part of the body was  white.  One old negro fisherman more that  seventy .years old declared that thl?  was only tho second" specimen of tht  sen bat he had ever seen In his lonp  experience ns a .fisliermam.- Tho Bpecl  men, syhlch had a truly uncanny ap  ponrance, will probably be sent to tin  Btate museum nt Raleigh.
