cheap as San Francisco or Portland dealers can buy, but we also get the cash discount; and if any other
dealer thinks he can undersell us. he has only to start in, and we will agree that "the longest pole shall

to our customers, but we still have a full and varied stock of as unique and beautiful goods as can be
found in town, and as we have said relative to other goods, we will not be undersold.
The expressions of admiration and satisfaction that have been made by those that have examined or

! A Newly Patented Mode of Preserv
ing: lave Pisu.
interesting and curious in-
volition has been lately patented ,
which bids fair to be useful and
important in the transportation of
live fish. It vas discovered by
Mr. "Walter G. Murphy, of New
York cit', the patentee, that fish
could be kept alive for some con
siderable time without change of
air or water by placing them in a
receptacle partly filled with water,
and hermetically sealing the same.
To test the invention, experiments
were carried on, some of them by
the favor of Professor Blackford,
of the New York fish commission,
at Fulton Market, New York city,
lu order to make the test as thor
oughly as possible, young fish and
fish as delicate as could be ob
tained were used. These were
striped bass. The latter to the
number of about two dozen were
placed in a glass jar, filled nearly
to the top with water, and the jar
was hermetically sealed. The fish
were kept for sever.il weeks in the
jar without opening it, and did not
appreciabhy suffer. Upon open
ing the jar and placing them in
fresh water, they appeared as live
ly and well as before being placed
in the jar. Another similar ex
periment being made, it was found
after several weeks' confinement,
the time being extended beyond
that of the former experiment,
that the deep black lines in the
bass began to fade and disappear
and a white fungus made its ap
pearance on the fish, which was
speedily followed by their death.
Experiment with the jar wholly
filled with water showed that the
fish quickly died. Another expe
riment with the fish as in the first
mentioned case was made, and a
second jar the same as the first,
with a like number of fish, and
similarly filled with water, was
placed beside the sealed jar. The
second jar was left uncovered
and the water was unchanged.
The fish in the closed jar were ap
parently as well as ever at the
end of three weeks. The fish
in the open jar all died within
forty-eight hours. While changes
of temperature were known to be
a serious question as affecting the
conditions of keeping fish alive,
and while the ceanges of heat and

cold, to which the jar and contents
were unavoidably subjected, could.
i!ir. hr wIl vifnlitnrl vnt Mi ficl
:n ih(y ,,, worr. nnt pfrppfofi
thereby. Experiments ivere also
tried in which the air intheiar
containing the water and fish was
compressed, and was found that
the fish wen benefited thereby.
It would appear from the above -mentioned
experiments that growa
fish and hardy fish could be trans
ported from one distant locality to
another with little trouble and ex
pense, and that in the case of deep
sea fish compression of the air
would aid in cliecting the
result. The advantage to sports
men in carrying live bait would
seem to be ireat, and the value to
the U.S. fish commission to be ines
timable almost, in view of the great
expense now incurred in building
special cars and apparatus to
transport and keep fish alive. The
scientific reason for the result of
this invention has not been ex
plained. The late Professor Baird
of the United States fish commis
sion, when the invention was
brought to iiis attention, suggested
that by reason of hermetically seal
ing the jar, water did not undergo
the rapid change that took place
when the jar was left open, and
which bred a parasite which de
stroyed the fish. "Whatever be tiie
reason, it would seem that the in
vention is one of great benefit and
value, and that the fish so treated
will eventually die if not taken out
after a certain time, yet practic
ally, for the purpose of transport
ing fish alive, the result attained
is a complete success.
