The captain Ir a man whoso veracity l� not doubted. Tho captain brought hi* vessel from Rio de Janeiro, and it wiw when twenty miles ofl' Capo ttatteras that ho ran Into a school of Hen monsters mik-Ii aa be hail never Iteforo soon. The monsters were sighted hy one of the crew. They wero nearly n hundred yards ahead of the veswl and were apparently mshinK toward her. When first seen by the Niilors they thought t!ic> ship was run-nlug Into a floating Island, some of which are �ft att,lo among themselves, They had four long arms, on the ends of which were claws that resembled the hands of an ape. Those arm like things extended from each side of tbe body. Discovering that they were a n#w species of (!s!i, be immediately communicated the fact to the first mate with orders to try and capture Home of the strange monsters. The mate gave orders to the crow, who were more or less frightened, but were waiting the chance to *'�keer'" the brutes, and when they were told of the captain's orders they nearly jumped out of their shoes. The I mat was sea relied fur weapons, and soon tbe deck was cove re. I with harpoons, boat hooks, fish hooks ami every other kind of implement used in eatehing fish. The boat hooks wen* first used in their Attempt to catch the fish, but. unsuccessfully. The fish seeine 1 to know what was needed of them, and they used their "hands" to protect themselves from being caught. Group* of two and three of the monsters would grab the ro.l of the boat hook and pull it away. Eight of these hooks were taken from the sailors. The arms of the fish were r.bout, six feet loug, Said Ci.pt. Ghecn. fish VBi: tiif.iu hands. The sailors became alarme I, thinking that some ill omen bad caused the serpents to follow the ship, and they thought they Were going to be lost. They told the captain that they thought the ship would never reach port. Some rushed to the forecast lu and others to the captain's cabin in their endeavors toesoapo from the supposed "Jonahs." Hy this time the fish bad become more daring.und would swim alongside the iKiat and grab the */iiJ tenion* and traces. At last the captain became so exasperated at the men that he ordered them to cast the lines which they use in catching drum and sturgeon. This the crew reluctantly did. The lines were ljuited with huge pieces of codfish and cast over tbe side. They were bandied by the flah the same as tbey handled the Iwuthook. They would grab the line with their "hands," and try to tear them apart, and if one was not successful two or three would come lj its aid, "All the time we were trying to capture oneof them," said tbecaptain, "they would keep up a yell that sounded like the bark of a coyote. At I..Ht the men were successful. Tney hail, indeed, caught one of the ilsh, ami they began to haul him in. When the remaining IImIi saw their captured brother (hey made great efforts r.o rescue him.

Although it. is well known that dynamite freezes at a comparatively high temperature, and that the process of thawing cartridges charged with It is a risky opera tiou unless it 1h carried out hy means of warming pans which have been devised for the purpose, accidents of a fatal nature are constantly occurring through'neglect of the simplest precautions. One which look place at Colwill quarry, Devonshire, forms the subject of a report by Maj. Cun dill, Inspector of explosives, of London, liythis accident two men lost their lives, aud it must be said that the poor fellows In their ignorance seem to have done their Iwst to bring about this lamentable result. To thaw their cartridges they placed them on loose sacking ah.ivcaeauof water which \viii placed on tho tire, anil the pre siimptiufi is that the nitro glycerine exuded from tho dynamite and dropped through t he sacking into tho water beneath, From its greater specific gravity ft would c( course sink to the bottom of tho vessel and thus he immediately above and almost in contact with the coals. The result must have been obvious to every one but those concerned. The men thawed their dynamite in this reckless way by direction of their master-who explained that h hud always done it in this manner-and who also confessed that he had neve troubled to read the printed rules supplier with the explosive. The great report also shows that the agent who supplied the dynamite seemed to be an sublimely ignorant of its quulities as those who used it. Xew York Telegram. Fame After Death. It is pathetic to read of the posthumous fame of Adam Lindsay Gordon, the Australian poet. Twenty years have passed since, reduced to dire peeuuiary straits, hi shut himself on Brighton Beach, near Mel bourne. Xow we are informed, on thtf thority of the circulating libraries, that hi: poetical works are "extremely popular" in the wealthy city where he .starved who alive. The Australian publishers hav made a fortune out. of the fresh and vigorous po�-ms that brought their author little if any, recompense. Here is an instance of the contemptuous indifference wi;,h which (Jonion's remark able gift of open air song was treated during his lifetime. Oneof the leading Australian dailies thus noticed his "Bash lial lads" on their first publication: "We hav received a volume of poems entitled 'Bush Ballads,' by A. L. Gordon. The book i: highly creditable to the printer, the paper maker and the binder." Tbe same journal published within tho hut few years, with out a blush or an apology of any asrt, tw columns of a glowing eulogy of tho London edition of Gordon's poams. It is th old story of the stoning of the prophets, Reals and The Quarterly, of the marble honors that are reserve J for a man's ashes and the tribute that comas Just a lifetime too late.

IR'fttuiiH That t'nnnot Un Imitated, The large and continually increasing de-nand for paper which cannot bo duplicated for fraudulent purposes, as in tiie case of printed certificates of stock, bonds, drafts, notes, commercial paper, etc., hns led to the production of paper of special and peculiar designs of more or less ftdnpta-Jou to such a purpose. Oneof the most recent and practicable processes, as described, for securing this result consists In applying Ink to a lithographic plate, of etone or other material, fdacing another plate, which may also be ithographic, face to face with the tirst named, rubbing the faces of tho two plates ogether for a time and then taking them apart. The ink will be distributed in such a manner by this rubbing action that a variegated design is imparted to the plate. Or in case the design thus produced is not of a satisfactory character, the plates are simply placed In contact a^uin and the rubbing carried on uutil the desired character of design is brought about.

Several Good Sugsentlonfu There was the young man who was heard to assure tho elderly man to whom he wan presented that he was very glad, Indeed, to meet him. Now, no doubt he was, for the elderly man was oneof the distinguished men of his state, ami the youngster was really very modest at heart, and felt that the presentation honored him. But would it not have been in better taste to let the kindly assurances come from the roan of years and distinction, rather than from the untutored youth who had nothing to offer* Worse than be is the young fellow wdio goes about among his womert friends, as loug as he has any, apologizing profusely for not having called upon them lately. ssnmlng that it is a matter of grave importance to me whether he ever calls or not," said Genevieve, scornfully, a few days ago when Tom Bigbee openly mourned his negligence of her hospitalities.

Lots of men get shaved in New York in the live and ten ctnt barber shops who would not care to have the fact generally known. Their reasons are good ones. Tbe cheap shops uptown are mainly in the hands of Italians, who are swift aud good shavers, and they arc open from 7 in tbe morning till 10 ov II at. night. The shops are located on Third, Second, fcightb and Ninth avenues, and if a man's In-ard is itroog and his fa_e not particularly tender he can get shaved rapidly aud comfortably for live or ten cents. No tip is exacted. At tbe hotel barber shops iu the upper part of tbe city the process of getting shaved is rather an involved oue. Tbe shave corIs twenty cents, the barlwr always expects to In; tipped a dime, and th3 brush boy, who is usually assiduous and persistent, struggles for anything iu the way of change that happeus to be lying around loose.
