Machines In Which Thousands of JKIsh are Hutched Dully Dur­ ing the Season—The Pro­ cesses of Incubation. •J3 T ^ ESIDE the north entrance of tho Government Building is tb6Unitcd8tfttos fish-hatching exhibit. Tho water ever stirs the Httle'globvilnr eggs which half fill the big glass hatching machines, but the thousands of World's Fair visitors who each day crowd around -th\o uia- chiues might watch IhemTrom now un­ til the end of tho Exposition without seeing n miniature trout or whitofish burst from tho egg, raiso to the top of tho hntching can and fall into the glass nursery below. Tho hatching season is over, but the exhibit is just as inter­ esting if not as complete as when 100,- 000 yellow and white perch were be­ ing brought into existence each day. Nonr the entrance to tho building the old-time fish hatcheries woro largfl barges furnished with hatching ma-\ chines**\ Models of the present Gov­ ernment hatcheries show how fish cul- turo has advanced. The buildings are large and roomy, and the clumsy wooden hatching machines have givoD place to the light glass jars. The cases in which tho spawn is shipped to distant hatching stations are also shown. Tho eggs'lay on wire hotting in thin layers, while tho box is thickly lined with moss, which, when dampened, keeps tho eggs cool nud prevents their hatching prema­ turely. Another interesting feature of the exhibit is the numerous ways in which ingenious minds have arranged ways for the finny tribe to get down rivers whore tho current is swift. In soino of these devices the fish are re­ quired to swim, zigzag, while others aro straight, smooth chutes over tho dangerous water.—Chicago Record. Power or Imagination.

Gasping for breath he scarcely knew nig, jars filled with constantly moving e^'gn until he roaches the tanks filled with tiny fishes, he goes away firm in con­ viction that he has seen a whitofish, a shad .or a carp, as the ease moy be, hatched by the Governmental process.

He emptied the hatching machines into the north lagoon and the -2,000,000 little Wor-ld's Fair fishes were sent out into Lukt Michigan to battle for life alongside of those which had tunic into this world by the natural process. The eggs for the 2'ereh hatched at the Government Buildiug were ob­ tained by the Government \spawners\ located at the hatching station at Put­ in-Bay, Ohio.

The first thing visible arp the eyes, then the tail appears and the fry- keeps this swishing around until it breaks tho egg, Then the fry crowds its way up above the oggs to the water in the jar and iu eventually carried through tho overflow tube to u larger jar, called by the fish-hatchers, the nur­ sery. There it is nurtured by placing food ground to minute pieces in tho water and when it has become large enough to eat larger pieces of food, it 18 placed in another tank whero it re­ mains until it is loaded iu a shipping can <)'' special design and sent to some river or lake where fish are scarce. Wlion tho fry first leaven the eggs there is U curious sac attached to tho under portion of its body In this sac the fry carries its sustenance for tho first few days of its life. This sac grows smaller and smaller as the fish grows until if- entirely disappears. • Then the fish begins to take its per­ manent form. It takos but four days to hatch a shad if the temperature of tho water is high, but whitefish take from uincly to 120 days under tho sumo condition. Trout hatch in thirt to 120 days aud perch in fifteen to thirty days. Tho rost of tho fish-hatching exhibit is almost as interesting as the hatch­ ing process.

A Now Musical Prodigy. Musical London is still talking of Raoul Koczalski, \the new Mozart,\ who has boon packing and crowding St. James's Hall at his musical reci­ tals. Ho is certainly tho most won­ derful of tho crop of wonderful child- musicians now growing up. He is a young Pole, aged eight years, strong and sturdy; of limb, who practices very little, plays some of tho ' most difficult compositions of Beethoven, Liszt, Chopin - and Bubinstein, and is the composer of ovor fifty \works fifteen of which have already been published. The boy's musical education, it must bo admitted, began at a very early age. While a baby in long olothos ho excelled in giving shrieking concerts, till his mother, Mme. Koczalski, from very sympathy with his musioal on dcavors, began to accompany the young hopeful on tho piano. This suited Baoul exactly. His \bellow- ings\ ceased, und a smilo of angelic contoht spread ovor his round face. At the ago of threo the boy was in the hands of a professor of the Warsaw Conservatory, and boforo he was five he was touring Bussia and Rouinnnia, in Spain, Turkey and Italy. Now, at last, ho has como to England, and any­ body attending one of his recitals will know very soon, by tho sweltering heat and the dense crowd in the hall, that Baoul is made wolcomo among us, and iu-rapidly adding to^iiis.laur- i rels.—Now Tork Mail and ExpreBs.-..

Preparing Teas For Ocean Voyages. The process through which Chinese and Japanese teas aro put to prepare them for an ocean voyage are very in­ jurious to them For such transpor­ tation the leaves must be roasted be­ fore .shipment, and thus the aroma is largely dissipated. The best teas are only to be had i n their highest excel­ lence in tea growing countries, where they can be procurod boforo passing through the heroic process which they have to go when they are to be packed in the holds of sea going vessels. For home consumption less elaborate meth­ ods of curing suffice, and it is sug­ gested that American teas may even­ tually be sold in this country in the shape of cokes of dried leaves pressed into 30lid shape, as is done with many other herbs. The roasting, which de velops the aroma, may be porformed immediately before use, as is now done with coffee Very likely such tea will ultimately be ground like coffee. In preparing black tea tho leaves are first withered by being exposed to tho sun for an hour. They are then rollod and twisted to get rid of part of the juice. Next they arc inado up into small balls, which are placed in shal­ low bauiooo trays and set in a sunny place to ferment. During this process the leaves lose their raw odor and ac­ quire tho desired flavor. After fer­ mentation the leaves are exposed in a thiu layer to tho sun, which turns thorn from green to black. Then they are placed iu a tray ovor a charcoal fire to dry. This is called \firing.\ The final operation consists in passing tho leaves through sievos of different meshes, after which thoy aro packod. Such is tho method UBed iu Japan. In India it is simplified, fower persons being employed. The Japaneso some­ times prepare what thoy call \flat tea,\ the leaves not being rollod. They are from plants which have been kept in darkness for n wdok or two before picking. Keeping them from the light is said to develop an exquisite aroma, Teas of India are usually threo timos as strong as Chinese and Japanese teas, BO that they are chiofly used to give \body\ to the weaker teas by being mixed with thenT. The manipulation of the product in India, after picking, is wholly done by machinery, whereas it is all hand work in China. In fact, the Chinese use their feot in rolling some of the cheaper grades. For green teas the leaves are first stoamed slight­ ly, after which come tho rolling and drying. —Washington Star. THE HOME Or THE 800L.

From tho worm that grovels In the dust beneath our feet, to tho track of tho lovlnthan In the foaming deep; from the moth that corrupts tho secret treasure, to tho eagle that soarsabovohls cyrlo lu tho clouds; from tlio wild ass in the desert, to tho lamb within the shopherd's fold; from tho consuming lo- ousts, to tho cnttlo upon a thousand hills j from the roso of Sharon to the cedar of Lebanon; from tho crystal stream, gushing forth out of the flinty rock, to tlio wido waters of tho deluge; from the barren wasto to tho fruitful vineyard and tho land flowing with milk and honey; from tho lonely path of the wanderer to tho gathorlng of a mighty multitudo; from tho tears that fall in soctet, to tho din of battlo and tho shout of a triumphant host; from tho solitary in the wilderness, to tho s:itrap on the throno; from tho mourner clad in saokcloth, to tho prluco . la purple robes j from tho gnnwings I of tho worm that dieth not, to tho sornphlo visions of tho blessed; from' tho still small voice, to tho thundors ot Omnipotence, from tho depths of hell, to tho roglons of etor- nal glory; tboro is no degreo of beauty or do- , formity, no tendoncy to good orovil.no shado of darkness or gleam of light, which does not oomo within the cognizance of tho Holy Scrip- ' turo; and therefore thoro Is no expression or conception of tho mind that may not find a corresponding picture; no thirst for excellence that may not moot with. Its lull supply: nnd no condition of humanity necessarily excluded from tho un'imited scopo of adaptation and of sympathy oomprohended in tho language and tho spirit of tho Blblo.\—[Jour. Com.
