I am at a loss to understand your attitude n this question of the hooking of fish solely or pleasure. It is not and never has been with ne a question of the barbless hook-but one of n objectionable practice, and it seems to me hat I made that plain enough for the running man to read.

[ocr errors]

The hooking of fish uselessly, merely for leasure, is perhaps not a vital matter in our ublic life, but it seems to me that it has not unimportant relation to our public morals. The time may come also when such a practice may have an appreciable effect on one very esirable supply of food, and upon the rights f our neighbors to enjoy the pleasure of legitmate angling.

The original comment which called th" Fairplay's" letter was based on e existing condition of affairs in Ameri

angling. It was only yesterday that hermen kept all the fish which came to eir hook, regardless of size and quantity. adually a better practice crept into being. e small fish were returned and the cess fish were likewise put back in the ter. As a step towards improving even s condition Mr. Pulsifer argued for the e of the barbless hook whenever a suffint quantity of fish had been caught for d. Trout caught on the barbless fly are actically uninjured if the hook, as almost ariably happens, is caught in the hard, ensitive edge of their mouth.

We regret very much if "Fairplay's ginal letter was misinterpreted. We that its force was directed more against use of the barbless hook at all than inst all fishing whenever the requirents of the frying-pan had been satisfied. THE EDITORS.

W sitter, after the latter has paid fordi

Of course, most people would say, the pur chaser. But, whatever his legal rights, has the latter a moral right to mutilate the picture? The question is raised by a dis pute between Augustus John, English artist, and Lord Leverhulme. The latter found that his portrait would not fit a cer tain wall space; he therefore, according to the London "Daily Express," cut the head out of the canvas and left the remainder in the frame. This portion was, by mistake, sent back to the artist. Mr. John felt that he was insulted and demanded an apology. The apology was made for sending back the picture, but the owner still contends that he had a right to do what he chose with his own. Here is a nice question in casuistry for the critical public to cogitate over.

Mr. Gladstone, according to the recently published biography of Herbert Beerbohm Tree, the English actor, once came onto the stage after the play and asked Mr. Tree as to the political opinions of the theatrical world. "Conservative, whole," was the answer. "But," he added hastily, as he saw a darkening in his dis guished visitor's face," the scene-shifters are Radical almost to a man." They parted firm friends.

George Grossmith, the English actor, once played a practical joke at Madame Tussaud's museum of wax works. He placed himself in a line of waxen celebri

This was Grossmith's opportuity. He "nodded grotesquely, and slowly -xtended, a comic Grossmithian hand. Every one fled as though he had been shot -t."

A gentleman drove up in a Rolls-Royce touring car to the shop of the principal bookseller in a large English country town and, entering, simply asked whether he had any valuable books in stock. "I have two," said the bookseller, "that I am asking a hundred pounds apiece for." 'Very well," replied the customer, "I've been told you're an honest man, so I'll take 'em." He paid, and, without looking at the books, drove away with them. This customer was not a lunatic, but, as the bookseller explained, one of the folk who made money in the war. "They go round," he added, "buying up books and pictures so as to get out of being taxed. They never read the books, of course: it's only just an investment; and not a bad one either, if they have the sense to stick to people like me who don't cheat them."
