impression of a snake, as if the creature,
having bnrieditself in mud for the win

strange are faces and various parts or

These odd looking things are molds
The Smithsonian institution has been
collecting them for SO years past, and
some of them hart cost a great deal of
money. Quite a number have been fetch

, nothing better than to make a cast of it
in plaster of pans. By this means its
chape is copied to perfection., and that is
a great help for museum purposes.
When, a few years ago, a whale was
f trail dod on theKew England roast, Dr.
Palmer, taxidermist cf tbe Smithsonian
institution, was sent to mako a copy of
it in papier macho. This he did that

however, representing what might bo
termed tbe port side of tho animal.
This is now hung up in the National
museum. On one side it shows tho out
ride of the creature and from the other
side the inside. It was a clergyman
who on a certain occasion not long ago
was steering some incmsers of bis nock

"You sec, my dear friends, that there
was plenty of room for Jonah!1'
In such ways, the Smithsonian insti
tution has collected Isolds and made
casts of a great variety uf animals, of
ten sending long distances to get them.
Of reptiles alone it has eocured several
hundreds, e.-.ch representing a typical
species, while the fishes run up to 1,200
and upward. From es.zh plaster mold
about E0 casts may be made, if de
tired. This facility of multiplication

another branch of the work not re

to museums all over the world the
Rm?tr.mian institution eends sets of
tTpical aboriginal implements of Amer

study. A mold from an actual stone ax
will furnish 60 facsimiles, which only
have to be painted in order to look ex
actly like tbe onginaL II more .are
wanted, another mold is easily made.
While it would not be easy to ship a
whale or a walrus to the Smithsonian
institution smaller animals are readily
transported. Nearly all of the creatures
of which these molds are made are sent

a tapir, he will not be obliged to guess
at the measurements of that part of the
beast. Close by is a cast from the head
of a sea lion that was killed in tho Pa

of a bear. Some day the taxidermist
will desire to set up a stuffed bear with
its month open, and there will be a

HER SILVER SPOONS.
THEY REMAINED HER PROPERTY, BUT
WERE VERY COSTLY.

Wife's Property Kiglit.
The following story was told in a pa
per read by Mrs. M. J. Coggctshnll at n
meeting of tho Woman's Snffrago so
ciety of Des Moines aud published in
The Saturday Review of that city:
Today, when wo women liavo not out
grown the pretty fad cf collecting sou
venir spoons, the great variety and
beauty of which were unknown to onr
grandmothers, allow me to recall tho
story of a great aunt cf ours who also
loved spoons, but whoso plain cupboard
drawer contained no sets cf dainty after
dinner coffees like those from which wo
love to sip as wo sit in our clabs and
talk of culture.
This aunt when a young woman was
a teacher in a country school until she
had saved enough money to indnlgo her
great desire for a sot of silver spoons.
Sho was married soon after to tho young
man of her choice. Six years parsed by
years of hard work and economy for
both, happy years, though no children
had come to bless thuir union when by
a sudden illness the husband was taken
away. The day after the funeral the
grieved wifo was surprised by tho en
trance to her home of the two brothers
of her husband, bringing with them the
villago lawyer. They told her they had
couio to set a valne upon their brother's
property, iu order that sho uiin'l:t knew
what part of it was hers.
She held her peace as they tct down
tho worth of cr.ch articlo of fornitoro in
tho littlo homo, until tin y finally came
to the box of Kpoiius. "
Thru she spoko and said: "Tme ara
mine. 1 bought them with my own
money before I was married. "
"Yes, ma'am," said tiro lawyer,
"but you know, ma'am, that alter a la
dy is marric.l everything belongs in law
to her husband. "
So all tho little property was divided,
the brothers taking half, and she took
th8 spoons with the rest at Uiq price
that had been set upon them. Cut it

casionally teaching a school and always

herself very comfortably for about three
years, when a lifelong friend cf her
husband, an excellent man, offered her
his hand in marriage.
Sho liked him well, and her friend
told her it was the best thing to do, and
she thought with pleasure of again be

She had a few times spoken to him
about making a will, but as it seemed
an unpleasant subject she had ceased to

There had ccnio to attend tho funeral
his nearest relative, a nephew from New
England, whom she had never seen t-3
fore. In a day or two bo brought two
men to the cottage to appraiso the prop

upon the well preserved spoons. On the
evening of that day as she was prcpar

kitchen and said: "Aunt Liza, I am

he made a call upon the comely matron.
He was wise enough to'mako his first
visit short, but lingered a moment in
tbe door and suggested that in tho near
future they become better acquainted.
Sho answered, "I am living hero very
comfortably, and I think, Mr. Johnson

to call, "and closing the door hastily
she turned to her cat and said:

BooKht the Ship That Brought II uu.
An interesting anecdote is told of
the late Captain Theodore Julius. Some
time ago Captain Julius went over to
shipyard in Camden to tako a look at
the old packetsbip Tonawauda, which
was being converted into a coal barge.
The captain took a particular interest
in tbo old ship, becauso of his having
served as mate aboard her in tho early
sixties. While he stood watching tho old
vessel, a tall stranger approached him
and asked, "Isn't your name Julius?'
Ihe" captain replied iu the affirmative.
"You were a mate on that ship in the
summer of lfcG3?" "Yes," said thocap-
tain. "You don't remember me, " con
. tinned tho stranger, "but I remember

The great French painter, Bastieo
Lepage, was pursued by unmerciful dis

study art. His mothev worked in the
fields to keep that sickfy boy at school.

for seven years, painted without success,
but still painted. Ho had just finished
