“ Fishing Frog’’ Has No Trouble De

The Post prints hop checks.
There is a hideous reptile, knowu
as the tishing frog which angles for
its game as expertly and with as
great success as the most adroit fly
He is a clumsy, awkward

for a rod and line, with bait always
ready for use, the Indianapolis
News declares. Tw o elongated ten
tacles spring from his nose, which
taper away like actual fishing rode.
T o the end of them Í6 attached, by
a slender filament, which serves the
purpose of a line, a bait in the form
o f a shiny bit o f membrane. The
hooks are set in the mouth of the
fisherman below, and in order to in
duce the fish to venture within
reach o f them, the angler stirs up
the mud at the bottom with his fins
and tail. This attracts the fish and
conceals him from their observation,
lie then plies his rod; the glittering
bait glows in the water like a living
insect. The dazed fish are taken in
great numbers, perfectly circum

In n g Island affords particularly
clear evidence as to the history of
the great continental ice sheet which
covered the northern states many
thousand years ago.
The southern margin of this
great ice sheet, according to the
United States geological survey, ex
tended to Long Island and remained
there for a long time, depositing a
thick body of intermixed boulders,
sand and clay as a terminal moraine,
which is now the ‘backbone’ o f the
island. The ice moved southward
across the area that is now occupied
by ljong Island sound, and brought
these materials from the north,
dropping them at its melting edge.
This method of deposition developed
a very irregular aggregation of
hummocks and hollows, which have
produced the many beautiful details
o f configuration that make the high
er parts o f lying Island so attractive
to lovers o f nature.

Tlie dictionary informs one that
a “ gob” is “ a mass or lump, a* o f
mud or meat; a large or good-sized
m outhful; also a large sum, as o f
money,” but not a word about sailor
or seaman. How the word eame to
be applied to the American blue
jacket is a matter o f mystery, but
the “ gob” himself has done it, and,
despite all adicialdotu. “ gob” he is
to his messmate*.
“ Every naval officer resents the
use of the term,” says Herbert Corey
in the National Geographic Maga- i
zine. “ Not one will concede there
is such a thing or a word a.« gob. It
will be admitted that it does not
sound sweet and pretty, any more
than ‘choir’ or ’hike' or any of the
other one-syllable words that came
into use through war. But as the
