Every mile develop is new phases of Scenic Beauty from the time one leaves the train at Wauk Cag station till one reaches that picturesque Little fishing town of Corea. A distance of More than 20 Miles if one follows the Shore with a Long line of straggling houses contesting every few Miles into a Village of from fifty to a Hundred or More Homes mostly occupied by Thrifty Well to do people who make a Cummi Itable living and often something besides catering to the demands of the nearby summer resorts or by the fishing Industry which is assuming larger proportions each year. To this fishing Industry comprising lobsters clams sardines and smelts the of Coli proposes to devote some Little space in the next few weeks that those of our far away City readers May appreciate the delicacies that Are sent to their table from our coast. There Are Many of our Home readers too who will perhaps be glad to learn of what is going on right in their midst. The bettering of circumstances is noted All along the Way Liy new Homes building and by additions to the old Homes. The building fever which is a natural out Gro Nothof Prosperity seems to have struck this entire Section and one cannot drive a mile without seeing new budding new roofs or new windows. Corea is practically a new place although Indian Harbor the Parent town has been Long in existence. It is die most Easterly of the Many pretty harbours that make up into the coast of what was the town of Quot Gouldsboro a Winter Harbor i Rich , i respect Harbor Hunters Harbor and Indian Harbor. A few years ago some enterprising business men moved to 1 Indian Harbor and practically started a new town by establishing a Post office which they called Corea and engaged extensively in the business of shipping and lobsters. At the present time Corea is second to no place on the coast in the amount of business done in proportion to the number of people engaged. From a Slepy Hamiet of a dozen or so houses it has grown in an i creditably Short time in a thriving Village of sixty Homes which with Apos Toffice tek phone office two stores livery stable and an embryonic Church make up the Village. Its situation is Ideal. On a Day like last thursday with a fresh Southwest wind blowing and lashing the Waves into foaming fury upon the rocks with the dozen or More fishing sloops tugging impatiently at to Weir anchors it was a scene Long to be remember Eft. Around the comfortable tire in tie store of a. K. Do be were gathered a band of Jolly Hardy fishermen who take a Day of when the i jul blows a Gale. It is to these genial and uin Muni alive men the Rix okd is indebted Foi most of the facts that of to makeup plus Story. The Story loses in its left Lilious ii Ucli of the local colouring and Tich Ned phrasing that added materially to its recital. Fisli iii As a sport Anil i Shiing is a business ate file distinctive thou i by no Means ail tie Siori is eliminated Lioni the Lite of a Fisherman judging from the Jolly Gootel comradeship that exist Cal Between to lice men and the Many made Over tie statement of facts. Althous i Lishing in All its phases is on at Lorea it is lobster fish iii in which the men of the place Are chiefly engaged. At present about is men find employment there. These go to the fishing ground in the sloops before a Ludd to. I he fishing grounds lie outside the Hai Bor from two to it it eight Miles and Are subjected to the gales that Are so free Juenst on the Atlantic. In the recent Galea Large number of the traps were lost. The implements of lobster fishing ate beside the sloops traps and cars. The traps Are Small lath cages the ends made of netting through which the lobsters Are entice 1 into the trap by Means of bait one trap will sometimes have 125 lobsters. Each Fisherman has about fifty of these traps which he pulls once a Day when the weather will permit. After being taken from the traps the lobsters Are confined in big cars also made of laths. These cars will comfortably hold 6oco lobsters and they May be kept there for Days or until they Are sold. When necessary a car May be made to hold a great Many More lobsters sometimes As Many As 40,000. At Corea there Are about 25 of these cars. The sloops engaged in the business there Are from 22 to 35 feet Long and have a carrying capacity of from two to five tons. Smacks from Portland make periodical trips along the coast and gather up the lobsters from the cars for the Market. As everyone knows there is a protective Law which compels fishermen to throw Back into the water All lobsters measuring less than re 1-2 inches. Even with this precaution there is danger of the Supply growing less with the tremendous Drain that is made upon it. The Corea lobster men Are in favor of a close time during the period of shedding. Once a year every lobster Sheds his Shell when the old one drops off he comes Forth in new attire and at least two inches longer than he was before and Worth it is claimed about 30 per cent More than previous to the shedding. If they could be protected through this period it is claimed it would be a great Benefit to the business. The government does a great Deal to keep the Supply Good along the shores by the Means of its hatcheries at Gloucester. Roats Are sent out As Early As May and for several months they gather up All the Mother lol sters that can be procured along the coast. These Are taken to Gloucester. In june and july the baby lobsters i Fry att brought and distributed along the coast. These tiny k by sters from four to eight Days old Are not larger than a mosquitoes. They Are brought in jars and when put in the water soon sink to the Bottom where they grow. This lobster Industry brings from 5200 to Soo a week to the Little Village of Corea. This with the other business that naturally follows in the Wake of any Large Enterprise will make the town continue to urow and Prosper. Among the More Active of the Corea lobster men Are e. W.

People of note. Stories about lord Kitchener Are always interesting relates the London daily mail. Here is one which seems to be new. The present chief of the staff in South Africa though a great Man now was Only an average boy. He showed no Peculiar cleverness and what is More surprising in View of his present tireless activity he was inclined to be Lazy. His father was a strict disciplinarian. The Story goes that on one occasion when Herbert was at a Public school and was working for a certain examination it was reported to his father that he was idling. The report did not please colonel Kitchener and he told the future conqueror of the Mahdi that unless he succeeded in passing that exan nation there would be no More Public school for him for the present for he would be taken away and sent to walk in the solemn procession of pupils of a Dame s school. It he failed there he should be apprenticed to a Hatter. In spite of these threats Young Kitchener failed and thereupon dropped out of Hir place in the Public school and was seen in the ranks that walked through the streets two and two escorted by the Good lady of whom his father had spoken. When he again went in for his examination he passed. Possibly the world lost a Good Hatter by his Success but it gained a better general. Professor a l. Arner who has made a study of Monkey language has gone to Africa where he will live for a year or More in the Jungles and establish a school for monkeys. His Headquarters will be a steel Cage in which he will place his pupils. His object is in the first place to understand As much As possible of the language spoken by the different species and then to ascertain to what extent the Monkey mind can be made to comprehend j and express color form and articulate human speech. Professor Garner has al ready found by careful observation that different species of monkeys kept in one Cage will in time get to understand each other s language each however continuing to speak his own. Professor Garner besides studying gorillas and Chim Panza son their native Heath expects when he returns to bring with him some specimens of the pygmy race encountered by Stanley in his search for Emin Pasha.
