This evening a Ash was brought to me for identification which proved to be a Fine male Trout 8almo Fari weighing two pounds fourteen ounces says or. A. N. Cheeney in shooting and fishing. It was in the Pink of condition and fresh from the water. The Trout was caught in half Way Brook in Warren county n. Y., and i have on one or two previous occasions told in your columns of the rapid growth of this species of fish in the same Stream but i believe i never have recited the circumstances under which the first and Only Plant of Brown Trout was made in the Brook. May 20,1887, i received a consignment fish Fry consisting of 25,000 land locked Salmon 5000 Loch Leven Trout 2000 sailing and 5000 Brown Trout. The Brown Trout were a personal present from or Blackford president of the new York fish commission who received the eggs from count von dem borne the balance of the fish were from the United states fish commission. Twenty thousand of Salman were to go into the upper Hudson All the others into a tributary of Lake George. When i met the messenger All the Fry were in Good condition except the Brown Truit and of these a Large part was dead and the remainder Apar Eutiky very i decided that to Send these to Lake George would result in the total loss of the fish but that a few Fry might be saved possibly if they could be put in the water of Stream at once. A Friend was at the station with a Wagon and i asked him to drive to Halfway Brook a mile and a half away and Plant the Brown Trout noticing closely their condition when turned out. I went up the River with the Salmon and the messenger from the hatchery went on to Lake George with the Fry for that place. When i got a report from the Brown Trout it was to the effect that most of them were dead when turned out and the few that were alive were very feeble. I concluded from this that the Plant would come to nothing and was consequently surprised to see a Brown Trout taken from the Brook in 1889 weighing ten ounces. Lamp St year i saw one that weighed one Pound six ounces from the same Stream and now comes the one first noticed in this letter. In tour years Aud a few Days from the time they were planted As sick Fry one of them has grown into a Trout lacking Only two ounces of three pounds in weight. More than this the last named fish caught by Lyman Dexter was caught fairly with a Hook and i have had serious doubts about How some of the others were taken. For ale. Fine improved property.

Hambleton amp co. Age of new York City newspapers. The big noise made Over the Tribune a anniversary is Apt to mislead the younger Aud less informed among us the Tribune is not the oldest newspaper in new York by a Long ways. Indeed it is among the younger venerable As it seems in years and sedate though its bearing May be. Of the papers now printed in new York the commercial advertiser is the oldest. It was founded in 1797, and is therefore rapidly nearing its Centennial. The evening Post comes next dating from 1801. The journal of Commerce was started in 1827, and the courier Des stats Unis a year later in 1828 the bunk which still shines for All with remarkable brilliancy first Rose upon the literary horizon in 1833. The is but one year younger than the Bun having come into existence in 1834. One year after the Staatz Zeitung and two years after the Sun the Herald was brought Forth by the elder Bennett and always has had a James Gordon Bennett at his Helm. Horace Greeley founded the Tribune in 1814, the Days of hard cider log Cabins and Tippe Canoe and Tyler too. The old evening express a now merged into the mail and express was started in 1864. The times made its Bow to the Public under the editorial conduct of the late Henry j. Ray mond in 1851. The world was launched in 1860, Aud had a Stormy and dubious time of it for a Quarter of a Century until it fell into the hands of its present Metropolis mexican hallways two republics. The Universal Calls attention to tile fact that according to the concessions under which the railways in Mexico were build at least two thirds of the employees of those roads must be mexican. Our contemporary claims that this stipulation is not complied with As it should be. It admits that two thirds of the employees on the railways Are mexicans but says they do not hold the Best positions. The Universal thinks the mexicans should bold two thirds of the positions in each category and Calls on the Secre tary of the department of communications to insist on this interpretation of the Law. The Universal should know thai railroading is a business which must be Learned. Railroads being new in the country there Are very few mexicans with sufficient experience to qualify them for the most responsible positions however mexicans seem to Bein the majority in All the positions excepting those conductors and engineers. It is Iid Jusfre to except Railroad managers to place men in responsible positions regardless of their qualifications and merely on account of their nationality. It can not be claimed that mexicans Are debarred from any position Monaco out of their nationality. Notice of filing final account no. 1684. Estate of George a. Barker deceased.
