was in the city yesterday- be'w.eti trains,
en route to Norfolk. He is perfectly satis
fied with the results ol his visi'. tie re
ports millions of crabs in the sound an I
that they can easily be caught.
In Lynnhaven Bay at the ptesent a
barrel of oa' a day is as much as ean
be caught by oue man, but Mr. Phipps
informs us that in 1 lie test he made at
Morehcad on'J mall caught four : ; ei-
full in five hours, or at the rate of e.ght
bjrrels per day of ten houts.
The method employed is :'s foil ws: A
line 430 feet in length wa - ivtched be
tween two slakes iu tin -ound. This
long line had 300 short o with bait on
each one at mteiva - o very eighteen

on- 11 an in it at on-c 1 omuiencts going
back and forth, the occupant pulling
along by the line and taking in the crabs
with a scoop net whenever one is seen.
The first time this line was passed
along, 69 crabs were taken, 1 9 the next
tniK: and from 30 to 40 each lime a ter
wards during the five hours in which the
four barrels were caught.
Mr. Phipps considers the More heal
waters the best crabbing pluce on Mie
coast. He ii satisfied that five barrels
per day or thirty barrels per we k can be
relietl upon as an average :itoi now per
hand at whh h r ue go '. money can be
made by the eia' bis
The crabbing at this season however
lias to be done a few miles fiom More
head in a portion of the sound wdiere the
bottom is muddy it is sandy directly
around .Morehead. In the summer time
the ciabs can be taken anywhere in abun
dance. The crabs will not be shipped whole

that work done there.

Dr. C. F. Dawson, of th: United States

On Tuesday and Wednesday, 18th and

ting with killed and portions of the heirt,
' lung, etc , of each were saved for cxunii
! As our readers know, the object of the
experiments which have been ie progress
ever since early spring was to see whether
1 inoculation with Texas fever virus would
prevent cattle from being subject to the
disease. Of course the results of the test
will cot be given out yet I ut it appears
that the cattle not vaccinated did take the
disease and a portiou of them died from it
while the vaccinated ones seemed to es
cape It is true two of the latter died,
but the death of one was caused by mir
ing, and of the other apparently by some
other disease than the fever. While the
eat'.le not vaccinated seem to lave all
taken the lever anel some to have died
with it. The official announcement of
the result of the expi riment willb
