The Sultan derives no inconsiderable portion of his revenue from this source, the duty levied placing to the Sultan'® credit for the present year nearly, if Dot quite, S UH!,OOO. Besides Hie clove bud* the stem® are also gathered aud bum an article of commerce, commanding about one-fifth the price of clove®, and having about the aam© per centage of stiength.

Ile renewed Hie water daily for *ome time and gradually red need the quantity, with ho little inconvenience to tbo herring that he concluded that the fish might, in time, learn to breathe the air undiluted with water, liko thc eat and man. It turned out a* ho expected, and thc water was finally turned out of the tub never to be replaced. Henrik next removed tho fish from tin* tub and placed it on the ground, where it Hopped aln ut very awkwnidly at drat, but soon learned to move freely and rapidly. In a little while the honing wa* able to follow it? master without difficulty and then it became hi* constant com pan ion aboil* the stied* of the city. On a eortaiu unfortunate day Henrik had occv *ion to cr©** a dilapidated bridge which spanned an aim of the harbor.
