Undoubtedly the largest work of
the kind in the world is the factory
of Messrs. Singer, of sewing ma
chine fame, at Kilbowic, Clyde
bank, employing nearly nine thou
sand hands; and, turning out as
they do some eighteen thousand
sewing machines per week, this
firm will take some beating, both
in the size of its works, the num
ber of employees, or the quantity of
So well divided is the labor, and
so much is machinery employed,
that, as will be seen, every man,
woman, boy, or girl in the place
turns out on an average two ma
chines each weekly.
Eighteen thousand machines a
week gives us over three thousand
a day, Saturday being only a half
day, and as only 9 hours are
worked per day we have an output
of almost three hundred and fifty
per hour, or nearly six per minute.
At present a small addition in
the shape of a new cabinetmakers'
shop is being erected. It is only
30 yards wide, 300 yards long, and
six stories high. This of itself
would be considered a pretty big
work in most towns.
No fewer than three locomotives
are required to shunt the railway
wagons used, and these have full
staffs of drivers, shunters, etc., just
as in a railway shunting yard. In
addition to those workers who stay
iu Clydebank and district, or travel
by tramway car, four very large
special trains arc needed to convey
the others to and from Glasgow by
the N. B , one to Dumbarton by
the same railway, and two to
Glasgow by Caley.
The Medicine llnblt.
There is something fascinating
about a medicine advertisement. It
begins by describing the symptoms
of the disease for which it is a sure
cure, and any one with a vivid im
agination will immediately feel all
the pains and aches, "that full feel
ing after dinner," a rumbling in
the head and everything else de
scribed in the advertisement. The
medicine will go straight to the
"spot," and from one to five bottles
will cure. In many cases the medi
cines do cure. It is easier and
cheaper to go to the druggist and
buy a bottle of medicine than it is
to call on the physician or have
him call on you, and then pay him,
and get his prescription filled and
pay for that.
The medicine habit is easily ac
quired, particulatly if the dose is
something pleasant to the taste. In
the matter of narcotics the sensa
tion is more agreeable than other
wise. A small dose taken to relieve
pain, followed by beueficlal results,
gives the user a firm belief iu the
medicine. It is easy to take a dose
when there is no pain and soon the
It is not the poor that dread the
trouble and expense of a physician
any more than the well-to-do. A
dose in the closet is worth a half
dozen or more in the drug store,
and certainly the one at hand is
preferred to the one a few squares
or a mile away. A woman once
contracted the medicine habit from
being presented with a case ol
homoeopathic medicines when she
was about to take a journey. She
had no need of a single remedy iu
the case, but because the medicines
were there she tipped one bottle
and then auother to her tongue,
from time to time, and finally got
to the point when she would go
into a drug store and buy a medi
cine, and take it whenever she felt
inclined. It is a wonder that the
doses did not endanger her life, but
she still lives. Another woman be
came a confirmed drunkard irom
buying medicines made of bad
whisky. The cases of morphine
eaters are so common that they ex
cite pity, but not surprise. An
Indianapolis man went to Kurope
and not knowing the name of his
favorite drug in the country where
he was staying, wrote to a druggist
here to send him a large quantity.

Hank of Ilniclnnil Note.
All Uank of England notes arc
printed in the bank itself. Six
printing presses are in constant
operation, the same machines print
ing first the particulars of value,
signature, etc., and then the num
ber of the note iu consecutive order.
The paper used is of very peculiar
texture, being at or.ee thin, tough
and crisp; and the combination of
these qualities, together with the
peculiarities of the water mark,
which is distributed over the whole
surface of the paper, forms one of
the principal guarantees against
imitation. The paper, which is
manufactured exclusively at one
particular mill, is made in oblong
slips, allowing just enough space
for the printing of two notes, side
No note is ever issued the second
time. When once it finds its way
back to the bank to be exchanged
for coin it is immediately canceled,
and the reader will probably be
surprised to hear that the average
life ot a banknote, or the time dur
ing which it is in actual circulation,
is not more than five or six days.
The returned notes arc examined
by inspectors, who reject any which
may be found to be counterfeit.
The notes are sorted according to
number and date, and, after being
defaced by punching out the letters
indicating the value and tearing off
the corner bearingthe signature,
are passed to the banknote library,
where they arc packed in boxes
and preserved for possible future
reference during a period of five
The Koreans' White Dress.
As the Koreans are obliged to
dress in white for three years for
every case of death, and as once
three kings died within ten years,
by which deaths mourning was im
posed on the whole nation, the
majority of people chose rather to
dress continually in white in order
to avoid the great expense involved
by repeated change of clothing. The
women make these garments, and
every time they have to be washed
they are entirely taken to pieces
and beaten for hours with a wooden
paddle, iu order to obtain the
metallic gloss which is considered
