DESCRIPTION or A 8KATE. Landlubber Give One That Is Clear If Not Scientific. The bnrndoor skato beggars description. descrip-tion. I nover could tell whether ho wag looking at me with his eyes or his breathc-holes, says a writer in Country Coun-try Life In America. He Is a bottom fish and flat like a flounder. He has a triangular body, the apex ot which forms tho snout; opposite his snout aro his tall and a few extra pieces of his overcoat, which kind nnture has tagged on him In case ho gets torn and has to bo mended. His tall Is embellished em-bellished with a fov spines this I know for a fnct. He has a couple of c)es, a little way back of his snout, and right back of these are a couple of holes that extend ex-tend completely through hlra. These holes connect with his lungs, or what ever ho uiies to breathe with, and have an uncomfortable ay of looking at yon at tho same tlmo as his eyes. Ho has a mouth, too. but It is on tho under side of him, and convenient for business It Is a funny thing, with spines on the lips, and when you pull tho lower Jaw tho upper Jaw moves with It a sott of automatic trap, not unlike whut ou can see In any 10-cent restaurant. This Is a landlubber's description, but It Is enough. '-- 1 '
