Work That Requires Powerful
Hands and Arms.
THE PIGSKIN IDEA IS WRONG.
That Brand of Hide It Never Used, the
Fineet Balls Taking Calf or Cow Skin
and the Cheaper Grades Sheepekln.
The Bladders Are Made of Rubber.
That phrase so tuucli used In the foot
ball senson, "chasing the pigskin." In
volves a populur error. The football
Is not made of pigskin, but of the hide
of the calf or cow and for the eliwipor
variety the skin of the sheep. Foot
balls of the ordinurjr grade lire nindv
In this country, but some of the fluent,
sold to those who are not piirtieul ir
about price, are Imported from Eng
land, where the industry was an old
one before It was started In America.
The making of a football Is almost
entirely a male Industry. The only
Bhare that women have in the work Is
seen when one first enters a football
factory. At long tables girls sit past
ing linings on sections of the footballs
cut In another part of the factory. It
Is work that a girl is particularly fitted
for, as the linings must be cnrefully
fastened to the rough leather and
smoothed until there is not a sign of a
bubble or rough place on the surface
of the lining.
The first step In the making of a
football is to select the leather. Only
the best of picked skins are used, and
each skin is carefully gone over for
defects before being cut into the nec
essary sections. This is done by ma
chinery, and the sections are then sent
to the room in which the girls are ar
work for the lining to be pasted on.
Then the lined sections are sent to
the sewing room and the linings are
stitched together, bringing the outer
covering of the football into position
for the final stitching. This is done by
a machine that turns the footballs out
stitched in the seams but wrong side
out They must then be turned right
side out, a Job that is left to men who
do nothing else all day long but re
verse the leather covers by hand, a
work that requires great strength and
endurance and gives the workers a pro
digious amount of pulling power In the
muscles of the arms and hands.
When the cover Is pulled right side
out the outer part of the football Is
finished ready for the Inflation. The
bladder Is inserted and blown up, and
the ball Is then, stamped on a hot press
and worked up until the surface Is per
fectly smooth and free from rough
spots. The ball Is then deflated and
placed aside for shipment
Balls Intended for the soccer game
or for basket ball are also made In the
way described. A new Idea recently
applied to the making of the football
is to provide a ball suited to the rough
treatment Inseparable from play on the
stone flagged or asphalted pavement of
the school playground. It was found
that the finely finished football intend'
ed for use on a grass covered field
could not stand the hard usage receiv
ed during practice In the school yard,
and a football was therefore devised
especially for this rough work, with
the seams stitched on the outside In
stead of the inside. Sewing the seams
from the outside provided a ridge that
protects the ball when kicked and
bounced In a paved court and makes
the cost of the footballs used In a sea'
son somewhat less than when the fine
ly finished oval of the gridiron grounds
The origin of the term "kicking the
pigskin" was explained by one of the
authorities in this way: "Years ago,
when the game waa in Its early stages
In England, the Inflation was done by
means of a bladder of a pig. In those
old days the skin of the pig was ac
tually subjected to the Indignity of be
ing propelled high in the air by the
toe of a football player, but as the
bladder is no longer used the term has
ceased to apply.
The bladders are now made of the
best Para rubber. The regulation foot
ball weighs from thirteen and a quar
ter to fourteen ounces. The soccer
ball weighs from thirteen to fifteen
ounces. One cannot definitely predict
the life of a football, but the makers
say the hardest kicking should fail to
retire the ball in less than two years.
It may not be -generally known that
football has a patron saint. In 1520 a
boy named Ilugh bad the misfortune
to kick a football through a window In
the house of a neighbor, who became
so incensed at the damage done that
be stabbed the boy to death. The pop
ulace avenged the boy's death by kill
lng his slayer and then exalted the
name of the unfortunate boy by calling
him "Saint Hugh. "-New York Sun.

.UNDER THE OCEAN
Changes In the Sea Floor From
Shore to Shore.
HE BIG MID-ATLANTIC RIDGE.
It Starts at Iceland and Bisects the
Ocean Down Almost to Cape Horn.
In Places It Rises Above the Surface,
Forming Groups of Islands.
A sketch of the "landscape" of the
ocean bed Is given by Dr. A. E. Ship
ley in an article in the Edinburgh Re
view: "The passengers and the crew of a
liner racing over the surface of the
Atlantic are apt to imagine that under
them 1k a vast layer of water of vary
ing depth sparsely inhabited by a few
fish. As a matter of fnct, the whole of
this great ocean is teeming with life.
If instead of taking ship we could take
to the water and walk across the bed
of the Atlantic to America, starting
from the shores of western Europe, we
should in effect be traveling through a
succession of new countries. Not only
would the surrounding physical condi
tions vary as we advanced, but the
animal and plant life would vary in
correlation with the altering physical
"Walking farther and farther toward
the depths of the Atlantic, we should
soon lose all sight of the algae, and the
shallow water fish the plaice and sole,
whiting, skates, dogfish and others and
cod would give way to the megrim
and the hake. The sea floor would
gradually change from rock or gravel
or stones to sands and ultimately to
mud or oozes of various tints, their
original colors often modified by the
action of the decomposition of organic
particles in them and on them. All
these finer deposits are derived from
the neighboring land and are blown
seaward by offshore winds or washed
down by rains and streams and carried
out to the sea by rivers.
'The distance to which fine matter in
suspension may be carried Is very
great The Kongo Is said to carry its
characteristic mud as far out to sea as
000 miles, and the Ganges and the
Indus as far as 1,000 miles.
'Except in the neighborhood of such
great rivers a subaqueous traveler
would soon pass beyond what Sir John
Murray has called the 'mud line,' a
line that limits the terrigenous deposits
everywhere surrounding dry land.
Ilavlng reached this limit we must
proceed warily, for at the mud line.
at an average depth of a hundred
fathoms, we shall find ourselves at the
edge of the continental shelf, that rim
which extends seaward to a varying
distance from all land areas, the rim
on which Great Britain rests. Beyond
lies the continental slope, a precipice
more or less abrupt and more or less
high, descending by steep declines or
terraced cliffs until depths of 2,000
fathoms are reached.
"The Atlantic, compared with the
other great oceans, has an unusually
large area of comparatively shallow
water. Of its total area 27.5 per cent
Is covered by water less than 1,000
fathoms deep; 13 per cent lies between
1,000 and 2,000 fathoms and 47 per cent
between 2,000 and 3,000 fathoms; the
remaining 7.5 per cent is still deeper.
"At the foot of the continental slope
lies an Illimitable plain of a uniform
dull, grayish buff color, flat and fea
tureless as the desert and only diversi
fied by an occasional as yet uncovered
rock or wreck or the straight line of a
recently laid cable. This plain con
tinues with scarcely a change In scen
ery or in level until we approach the
great mid-Atlantic ridge. As Bruce
has shown, this ridge, which roughly
bisects the Atlantic, extends from Ice
land as fur south as fifty-three degrees
of south latitude, with a slight and
quite inexplicable break Just under the
equator. The ridge runs almost parallel
with the eastern contour of North and
South America, which, in turn, as tho
ordinary map will show, roughly cor
responds with the western contour of
Europe and Africa. From time to time
the ridge rises above the surface of the
water, as in the Azores group, St.
Paul's rocks. Ascension. Tristan da
Cunha and Cough Island.
"Having ascended the eastern and
descended the western slope of this
mid-Atlantic ridge, we should again
traverso plains of grayish ooze far
more extensive than any level lund
tract known to geographers, and as we
approached the American coast we
should gruduully puss through, in re-
verso order, the zones of life traversed
when leaving Europe. On the eastern
coast of America the slope is much
more gradual than on the western
coast of southern Europe and Africa.1
Told the Truth.
A few days after the new farmer
bad purchased a horse from a thrifty
Scot he returned in an angry mood.
"You told me this horse had won half
a dozen mutches against some of the
best horses In the country. He can't
trot a mile in sis minutes to save him
self. You lied to me!" he denounced,
"I dldna lie. It was in plowln'
