Herring Fishing at Lewes. ii auks to the courtesy of one of the fish-curers, we were able to learn some details of the herring fishery, now in f .1 swing. As the day wears 011, the i,--altitude of boats make sail, and leave ii.e harbor in magnificent and pictur esque confusion ; and the evening glow of the setting sun lights up and gilds tie dark-sailed luggers of the west, and .he yellow, white-canvased, half-decked bolts from the east coast, as, guided by ■•1.9 signs they watch for, they gain the herring-ground and shoot their miles on :.ai!es of nets. With early morning ionieS their harvest; and then, some one* gunwale-deep, they crowd all sail, .-.nd hasten back, like swarms of homing .

Some Anthropological Studies. The Bank's Islanders alone among Melanesians knew no cannibalism ami •wore no dress. The Bank's Islanders distinctly reeogniztd two orders of intel ligent beings different from living men ; they believed in the continued existence of men after death in a condition in which they exercised power ever the liv ing, and they believed in the existence of beings wLo were not and never had been human. The latter are called Viun, anil are divided into two great classes, corporal and incorporal. The most conspicuous among the first class is Qat, the legends concerning whom correspond to those which prevail among the Maroies and other Polynesian peo ple concerning Mauoir Tangaroa. The brothers of Qat have all of them the name of Tangaroa, and the Yius of the northern New-Hebrides, have the same name, which is also applied in Bank s Islands t« stones used as fetishes or am ulets. The story of Qat's disappear ance from tUe island bears a close re semblance to that o...

Aunt Maria's Bargain in Lace. It was just noon, and dinner was ready to put upon the table in the roomy farm house at the foot of Hem lock mountain. The horn had been sounded a full quarter of an hour, giving plenty of time for the men to come from ihe field, but they did not appear. Mrs. Stone took advantage of this fact by seating herself comfortably in the kitchen rocking chair, and taking a snatch of the rest of which her brisk steps in doing the morning's work had made her feel the need. But it seemed to Aunt Maria that the "men-folks" should be looked after, and accordingly she took her way through the wide hall to the front door. Siie paused a moment 011 the piazza, which was made delightfully shady and entic ing by an awning of v/ild grape-vines. The atmosphere was clear, and as she looked across the valley she saw the tin roof of a newly built house in the far distance glimmer and glisten in tlie blight sunshine like a silver star. 11l the front yard her bed of double portu...

"It's perfectly scandalous) - ' "He told me last night that I was the sweetest cirl he ever met," said Tiny Salter. "He has assured me fifty times, if once, that if 1 could not love him he would never survive." This from Daisy Howard. "He loves me madly, passionately, de votedly, but never has reached the mo mentous question, 'Wilt thou be mine?'" declared mischievous Bel. "And never will,'' answered Daisy. The three girls looked at one another and burst into a chorus of laughter. Thev were ensconced in Bel's snug lit tle sitting room, whither they had re paired for a regular good chat. They were firm friends, and all three the pets of the village. Pretty and sweet, and full of spirit, they were adored by the young fellows and envied by the girls, and to think they should apparently be the victims of one man was a little too ridiculous. The subject of their discussion was a young gent...

On Friday last, the horse St. Julian trotted a mile in two minutes, eleven and a quarter second*, (iMIJ), whieli is the fastest time on record over made by a trotting horse on a square gait. Frederick J. Hills, book-keeper for Dubois & King, Portland, formerly book-keeper at the Cascade* Locks, shot himself dead Friday night. He was undoubtedly deranged, as he has been addicted to the constant use of chloroform. The announcement of the death of the Ute chief, Ouray removes all hope of the treaty being signed. Officials of interior department fear that set tlers who have been waiting for the signing of the treaty to enter the res ervation will conclude to go in any way now that Ouray is dead, not be lieving that the treaty will be signed at all.
