They too take passage on Tho seaweed rafts and voyage to the land of nowhere seeking their Fortune. In Hie Gul f Weed also is an infinite number of molluscs some with shells Aud others without any. Among the latter Are Tho Quot sea slugs Quot resembling Hie Garden slugs devourer of plants which Are True molluscs also. Another Mollusk often picked up among the Gulf weeds is the Beautiful Argonaut a cephalopod celebrated in the mythic Story. It is Only the female Argonaut that is interesting the male has no Shell and is Verv Small comparatively. There Are lots of curious Marine Worms among tile Gulf Weed such As the a sea Centipede a a abundant in the West indies which have Long detachable bristles that sting the hand like Needles when the animal is i cautiously grasped. These Worms hide in crevices of floating Driftwood. The latter floats until destroyed by Tho Boring of the ship Worms that attack it meanwhile affording a Lodgment for barnacles and Little crustacean. Small fishes follow tile nieces of Driftwood As i hey Are carried along by the current feeding upon both crustacean and barnacles while Many seabirds skim about depending for their meals upon the same Small animals. There is a species of crayfish too found in the Weed that makes a curious clicking noise wit i its claws. What most people Call Hie a fruit Quot or Quot seed pods Quot of the Gulf Weed Are simply Little air vessels designed for the purpose of keeping these interesting vegetables afloat. Microscopic creatures called Quot bryozoan weave around the air Chambers a delicate Lac work which often remains in shape after the vegetable matter has decayed away and disappeared thus forming exquisite filamentous capsules. Currents of Commerce. Trade conditions As reported last week a quotations in the Boston new York and cd Cacao markets there is hut Little change to note in Tho business conditions during Tho past week. Staple commodities of All kinds old at very Low prices but the Low values did not induce purchasing above Ordinary wants. There was let to speculative increase of i stocks carried by business finns and actual Consumers did not anticipate their wants because of the relative cheapness of goods compared with former years. The declining rates for Money during the 1 week favored mercantile interests and Banks and Trust companies placed considerable amounts of Money in Mill paper at stuff a a. Mercantile notes hid not Soli freely. Tho demand for rubber goods continued j brisk for All kinds. Leather was less Active j Aud prices were steady though perhaps i shaded on Large lots. The Boot and shoe Trade was More quiet. It Many of the buyers visiting Tho City having gone Home. They have taken samples freely but orders were not so numerous. The shipments of Tho week Wero 63,709 cases against 74.683 cases Tho previous week. A decrease of 10,814 cases. The total decrease this Vear compared with last year is 107.674 cases. Cotton goods were quiet and showed no material change though Hie conditions were in favor of buyers. Tho prices obtained arc said to show but Little profit Over Cost. A member of a prominent Woollen firm says it is the intention of Bis House to reduce business 50 per cont. After Jan. I by i relinquishing Tho Selling Agency of several factories. One reason is that Tho trouble Aud risks of financing the business is not i commensurate with Hie profit. The chief reason however. Is that the buyers of Wool j Ion fabrics Are now chiefly of a certain line concerning which As they All bang together it is almost impossible to find out any Satis fac j tory facts of their commercial rating. To says that some of the factories Are making Money but the whole situation is not satisfactory. Another gentleman says the out i look for heavyweight Woollen goods is promising the stocks throughout the coun j try leg Small. Mills Are working chiefly i on orders mid in absence of them Are not inclined to Stock up largely preferring to j run on Short time or shut Down. The i Mand for dress goods is very Good the course pursued by the Mills is reflected Anthe Wool Market and the Trade in that Sta pie is quiet. Frees for goods and Wool urn i Well maintained. Complaints of slow collections from sales of goods Are heard. Beef veal. Lamb. Exports from Boston Anc new York. Values unchanged but Esther weak. The advices received from British live Stock markets gave no encouragement to the Trade. Values were weaker i than last week. The Supply continues Large and until a falling i off takes place no Advance in prices can hoi looked for nor will tile demand stronger. The reports received during Hie week showed a heavy mortality and shippers look for returns on sales at very Low figures As Hie cattle landed must have b in in a damaged condition on account of the severe weather which about All Ocean Steamer report encountering during Hie past to lays. I might space is quoted at 40s.

Suit lasted 42 years. Defendant was an insect that ate French crops. The records of France show us that from Huo to 1740 Thero Wero tried nearly too Ani rials for different offences and in 1740 the last trial was held and the prisoners a cow was found guilty and executed. I believe advocates were always Assiff Ned to the accused and the trials were conducted with the greatest formality. In one District of Fiance a suit was instituted by the inhabitants against a certain insect which was devastating their Fields. And lasted for 43 years in another District certain rats were proceeded against. They were described in the writ As Quot dirty animals in the form of rats of a greyish color living in needless to say no rats entered an appear Ance on the Day of trial Aud judgment was elven against them in default. In 1457 a sow and her six Young ones were tried for having murdered and eaten a child. Tho sow was found guilty and sentenced to death but the Little pigs were acquitted on the ground of youth and the absence of direct proof that they Baa eaten any part of the child. In Switzerland a cock was tried for having Laid an egg after a Long trial and Many ingenious speeches for prosecution and for defence the unfortunate cock was sentenced to death not because was a cock but on the ground that a a Devil in tile form of a cock and so a and his egg Avert burned at the stake. In Italy caterpillars were often tried and fish also. Animals in those Olden times were also admitted As witnesses on behalf of an accused person. If a murderer swore before an animal that lie was innocent provided it was Clear that the animal was present at the time of the murder to was held guiltless if the animal did not contradict him because it was thought then that god would rather work a Miracle Aud make the dumb animal speak thou allow a murderer to escape Justice.
