Will the Mouth Kver ilite the Vav)
A Frenchmau has discovered that
the human mouth is gradually work
ing its way around toward the left ear,
nnd accounts for it by the invincible
tendency of men to eat chiefly with
the teeth on the left side of the mouth,
says the Springfield Union. This
wears out the teeth on that side and
gives the jaw a cant toward the left.
In the course of a few ages it is be
lieved that the mouth will approach
the left ear, and there is some danger,
if the process keeps on long enough,
that it may get around to the back of

Fine Lar.;e fresh FKh SelKnjx for Three
The war between the fishermen on
the Sacramento river and the can
nerynien still continues and the re
sult is that large quantities of sal
mon aro brought to thi3 city every
day and sold at ruinous prices. Yes
terday while honsewives were paying
10 and 12l cents a pound for salmon
iu the markets they could have gone
to the fishermen's wharf and pur
chased all they wanted for less than a
cent a pound.
In the afternoon teu or twelve
boat-loads of large salmon that had
been caught in the morning were ex
posed for sale. Some weighed as high
as forty pounds, and they were sold
cleaned at a uniform price of 35 cents
each. A colored man made money by
selling gunny sacks at 5 cents each to
wrap the fish in.
A fisherman told a Call reporter
that the rich fishermen were mostly
Greeks and that they had formed a
combination er union and agreed not
to sell to the canneries below a certain
figure. If a man breaks the agreement,
he said, "he will be killed sure and
his boat destroyed."
The regular felucca men complain
greatly about the river men coming
and taking berths at their wharf.
They say they pay no dock dues and
hurt their trade so that several of
the regular fishing boats aro laid up.
The wharfinger and collector at the
wharf, they say, are "doing politics"'

Quebec, Aug. 26. The most gigan
tic railway system ever projected in
Canada, with the single exception of
the Canadian Pacific, is about to bo
started. The promotors are chiefly
French nnd English capitalists. Sir
Hector Langevin, minister of public
works for the Dominion, and Sir
Charles Topper, a high commissioner
for Canada in London, are largely in
terested parties. The scheme is to
build a railway eastward from Quebec,
somo S00 miles, to St. Charles bay,
on the Labrador coast. From which
point large steamers are expected to
make the voyage to Milford Haven, in
Wales, in three and one-halt days.
By this route it is expected that
passengers and perishable freight can
bo carried from Chicago to London
inside of seven days. The company
calls itself the North Canadian Atlan
tic Eailwav and Steamer enmnnnv.
The capital of the company is 20,000,

stated this morning that the chief, said
that the action of the federation was
merely a conservative course that they
were compelled to take by reason of
their charters. The words of sympa
thy, however, were merely words oE
caution to the members of the federa

upon their rights, and Powderly be
lieves that they will seize the first op
portunity to strike. That opportunity,
ho predicts, will occur before three

sured the members of District Assem

night that a general strike would soon
