LANDS FISH WITH LASSO.
Sturgeon Weighing 104 - Founds
. Fights for Over an Hour Before
i He Is Finally Caught.
' Watertown, N. Y. The most exciting
nsh story, that is well authenticated,
heard so far this season, comes from
Massena, where Orvllle A. Baboock, a
famous fisherman of that section, had a
battle royal the other night with a mon
ster sturgeon. A few nights ago Qrville,
rtWho was passing near the racks of one
of the Massena canal power houses, saw
a sturgeon of gigantic proportions in the
foaming waters near the racks. Orville
took a rope, and, after a half hour's trial,
succeeded in getting a noose over the
For another half hour he fought to tire
the fish out, and finally, -when it lay quiet
against the racks, he got down, rested
One knee on the girt of the gatehouse
wall, and, with his shoulder against the
racks, reached down into the water to
pull the sturgeon out. After hauling the
. fish well up out of the water, he found
that he was unable to secure a hold low-'
er down on the slimy monster, on ac
count of having to cling to the girt with
one hand. He got a firm grip with his
teeth on the tail of the fish, but the
denizen of the deep gave a flop and tore
loose, leaving a hunk of the tail between
Orville's jaws. After another 20 min
utes' wrestle, the noose was slipped over
the head of the fish, and Orville hauled
him out. He tipped the beam at. 104

COST OF LIVING HIGH
PBICES OF ALL FOODvPBODUCTS
Bureau of Labor Issues a Bulletin
Showing Increase in Recent
- years Steady Climb.
Washington. Prices of fuel, cloth
ing, and practically all food products
are constantly increasing, acording to
a bulletin just issued by tic bureau
of labor, covering the period from 1890
to 1904. In the early '90s prices were
very high, but in the last four years
they have been steadily increasing, un
til now they are relatively higher than
in 1892, just before the memorable
financial and commercial depression.
The period of lowest prices was from
1894 to 1897.
The lowest price of beef was .in
April, 1896, when the best choice was
quoted at $3.85 to $4.25- per hundred
pounds. The highest price was the lat
ter part of August, 1902, when the price
touched . $7.60 to $9 per hundred
pounds. .Corn was lowest in 1886 and
highest in 1892.
In a table of comparison, in which
the average price for the years 1890
to 1899 is taken as the basis, 16 articles
of farm production, including sheep,
cattle'; hay, hogs, hides and grains, are
enumerated. , All except flax seed in
creased, over the average price from
1890 to 1899. The increase in prices in
1904 ranges from 7.8 per cent, on sheep
and 9.7 per cent on cattle to 32.6 per
cent, on corn, 35.8 per cent, on oats,
38.3 per cent, on wheat, and the top
increase of 96.2 per cent. on. New York
The average increase in 1904 in the
wholesale price of farm products over
the average for the years 1890 and 1899
is 26.2 per cent. Of 52 articles included
under the head of food it is shown
that the 1904 price of all but 14 articles
was higher than the average price of
the same from 1890 to 1899.
Seventy articles under the head of
cloth and clothing show that vtre Aver
age price for 1904 was 9.8 per cent
higher than the average from 1890 to
1899. The table" on Juel and lighting
places the average 1904 price at 32.6
per cent, higher than the 1830 to 1899

MINIATURE JAP GARDENS.
Made in Ibis Country and Used to
Decorate the Sinner Table for
The little Japanese gardens dis
played in the windows of florists
are made in this country, but by
Japanese artists. ' '
"We import the dwarf plants
and trees used for the purpose
from Japan," said one dealer to a
New York Sun reporter. "The
gardens are constructed by Jap
anese men here whom we employ
for the work.
"How much are they? The ones
that you see here range from $3 to
$6. We have more expensive
ones. These are the $6 ones in
these round terracotta' pots.
"Some people use them for jar
dinieres for the center of the din
ing table. The coloring is rich and
good and the little gardens al
ways interest people."
Only Japanese art could achieve
these wonderful miniature gar
dens, many of them not more than
eight inches across.
A perfect illusion of extensive
landscape is won by the clever
placing of the tiny dwarfed trees,
the artful twists given to wee grav
eled paths, the carefully arranged
The smallest gardens are, as a
rule, grown in little shallow por

grown in shallow earthenware
pots, bowl shaped.

"I love mine in the sunset light,"
says a woman who is so devoted to
her garden that she has had a spe
cial high stand made for it to rest
on in a bow window, where it may
catch an admirable all round light.
"The effect of the golden light
through the little old pine trees is
stunning, and orange streaks slip
over the little lawns in just the
way they do over real lawns.
"When dusk comes the garden
is delightful, so dark and boskv

LIBRARIANS OF OLD AGES.
As an Armory to & Castle So Was tht
Library to the Ancient
The librarian was sworn into
office on the holy gospels, aS be
came one whose duty it is to fur
nish to those who have need the
"food"'and "weapons" of the soul
for so they used to call books.
"Books are the nourishment of
the soul," says one abbot, speak
ing of the library of his convent;
and another says: "As the ar
mory is to the castle, so the library
is to the monastery." The very
name librarian, "armarius," de
rived as it is from the press, cup
board or almeric in which the
books are kept, is precisely the
modem word almoner
moner serves from his cupboard
food and drink for the needy, so
the librarian deals out books,
which are the food and drink of
the soul, says Harper's Magazine.
In the beginning the librarian
was, curiously enough as it sounds
at first, the precentor or choir
master, but .the explanation of
this is, in fact, simple enough;
since the first books were, the
service books kept in the apse
cupboard in the church, the pre
centor was naturally charged

tW growth mnflA niwvf-in f
The ordinary duties of librari-
ans are often laid down with great
minuteness in monastic rules;
they differ greatly in detail but
not much in essence from those of
the modern; he must take charge
of the books, "keep and know un
der their separate titles," fre
quently examine caref ully to pre
ventdamage from damp, dust,
mice'and "moth worms," and re
pair them when damaged. He
must lend books to the brethren,
enter sueh loan carefully in his
register, and see that a sufficient
deposit is left for its return, or
proper bond given. .
Cuttlefish Have Been Found with
Beach of Thirty-Eight Feet
Of all the big game of the deep
sea that have been taken by man
the cuttlefishes are the most dia
bolical in shape and general ap
pearance. I have handled and
measured one that was 38 feet in
length, a weird, spiderlike crea
ture with two antennaelike arms
30 feet in length, says a writer in
Metropolitan Magazine. Speci
mens of these animals have been,
caught 70 feet in length, the cap
tors fighting them with an ax, cut
ting the arms which seized and
held the boat.
Off the coasts of California and
Alaska there is a big deep sea ally
of this animal a big spiderlike
octopus that haunts the deep
banks, preying upon the fishes
most esteemed by fishermen. It is
found off the Farralones on rock
bottom and at times the fishermen
haul in their lines thinking thai
they have fouled a stone or rock,
so heavy is the weight, but when
the surface is reached long, livid
arms shoot above the water, seize
the boat and the men are forced to
fight with knives and hatchets the
weird, uncanny game that has a
radial spread of 30 feet, its eight
sucker-lined arms being 15 feet
in length and possessed of ex
traordinary power. A specimen
taken off the island of San Cle
mente had a spread of about 20
feet and gave the boatman a hard
battle to sever its flying arms.
Nothing more diabolical can be
conceived than this splderlik?
giant of the deep sea, living amonjr
the recks GOO to 1,000 feet below
the surface. An individual of
moderate size which I kept alive
displayed the. greatest pugnacity.
The - moment I approached it
would literally hurl itself at my
arm, winding its 'long tentacles
about it in a manner'suggestivo
of what a large individual might
do. Indeed, Dr. A. S. Packard,
professor of zoology at Brown uni
"An Indian woman at Victoria,
Vancouver islandj in 177, was
seized and drowned by an octopus,
probably of this species, while
bathing on the shore. Smaller
specimens on coral reefs some
times seize collectors, or natives,
and. fastening to them with their
relentless suckered arms, tire and
frighten to death the hapless vic
REYNOLDS AND HIS RIVAL
Contrast Between the Two Artists
Difference Between Art and
The contrast between these two
artists is almost the difference be
tween art and nature, says St.
Nicholas. Reynolds was learned in
what other painters had done, and
had reduced his own art to a sys ¬
tem. Gainsborough found out
almost everything for himself;
never lost the simple, natural way
of looking at things and people;
and painted not according to rule,
but at the dictates of what he felt.
Reynolds planned out his effects,
' (Tp.i:isbprq-.!h painted on the spur
of the. lrup.ession which the sub
ject aroused. Reynolds' art was
Jsased.on safe general principles;
Gainsborough's was the fresh and
spontaneous expression of ' his
temperament depending, that is
to say,-on. feelings rather than on
calculation. His temperament,
or habit of mind, was dreamy and
poetic, gentle and retiring, includ
ing a small range of experience.
iteyno:as, on the other, hand, was
a man of the world and of. business
capacity; intimate with Samuel
Johnson, Oliver Goldsmith and
! f1' ebnties of the day; a man
of knowledge and clever conversa-
tional Pwer, whose pictures by
their variety prove his versatility

academy was established, in 1768,
