A Meeting of Furnace Men to be Held to
Protest Against the Bed action of the
Duty on Ii;; Iron.
Reading. Pa.. De.c. 30.— pig iron
and fnrnace men of the Lehigh and Schuyl
kill valleys have issued a call for a meet
ing at an early day, either in Philadelphia
or New York, for the purpose of taking
immediate action on the tariff commis
sion's report. Recent advices from Wash
ington indicate that there is a strong
probability that the ways and means
committee will reduce the rate for pig iron
probably $2 per ton, and the object
the meeting is to remonstrate against
-uch action, which the iron furnace men
-ay in this section will have the effect of
either closing every furnace in the valley
above named, or causing a ruinous and
-weeping reduction of wages. The meet
ing is to be called at once, because the
situation demands immediate action. A
leading iron producer here to-day said, if
congress reduces the tariff on pig iron to
that extent, there will be no pig iron made
here next year. This meeting will have no
connection with the manufacturers of
A Complimentary Dinier.
New Yoh, Dec. 30.—A dinner was given
to-night to Congressman Perry Belmont.
by a number of his friends. John D.
Prince presided. Among those present
were Senator Hitchcock. Edward T. R.
Pallet, Clarke Bill. Gen. Joseph J. Bryant
and Herman Oelriches. A letter of regret
was received from Governor-elect Cleve
land. Responses to toasts were made by
Mr. Belmont. Bayard, Stockton and Lieu
tenant Governor-elect Hill.
Arithmentical: James and Henry go
fishing and agree to divide. James has
two nibbles and a bite from a dog, and
Henry gets two duckings and loses a
twelve-shilling hat. "What is the share
of each? Six men put in their capital
to start a co-operative store. What was
left, after the manager got into Canada
was valued at $250, and this represented
one-fifth of which each man put in. How
much did the manager get away with?
One person out of every five* in the
United States has one or more corns, the
cost of effecting a cure is $1.30. What
is the number of corn victims, and what
would be the cost of placing every per
son on a sound footing?
, THE HOSPITALS AND ASYLUMS.
Perhaps the saddest task we have to
perform in giving the history of the
year's doings in our city is to put in print
a resume of events at the hospitals and
asylums. If children were born able to
win the bread necessary for their susten
ance, or if their parents always lived to
see them reach years of maturity; if men
and women were never stricken with dis
ease in an hour of need, were never the
vistims of accidents away from home and
friends, were, in fact, always and in all
places in health and abundant prosperity
homes for the friendless and afflicted
would not have place in the Utopia of
such conditions. But destitution exists
everywhere and it is one of the brightest
spots in St. Paul's history where it is
recorded that the hand of the stronger
brother has been so freeley extended to
his fallen comrade. The Bible injunction
"to visit and relieve the sick*' has
been obeyed in the building of
four hospitals. where many hun
dreds have received the attention
of some of our best physicians and
nurses, and a v*ry large portion of them
have been restored to health and useful
ness, the number of inmates at present be
ing much -mailer than three months ago. j
We are glad to know that provisions for !
the sick have been ample, but it gives us :
much greater pleasure to note that a large j
number of the hospital wards are empty, i
"Blessed is the man who provideth for the
sick and needy: the Lord will deliver him j
in the time of trouble.*'
The city and county hospital is located !
on Richmond street between Jefferson and !
Grace, and will accommodate when full j
about seventy-five patients. A two-story !
brick addition has been erected during the !
past year. The institution admits charity j
patients from only the city and county, j
Other patients pay f 6 for private rooms i
and §5 in the wards, medical attendance
being extra in the former and free in the
latter case. There are now thirty patients
under the charge of Mrs.Elizabeth Thomp
St. Joseph" hospital, built of stone in !
1855, on the north side of Exchange street, i
between St. Peter and Ninth, has about
150 beds, nearly all of whith were filled at !
one time the present year. The house now '
has eighty patients, of many nationalities,
and from all parts of the state. The su
perioresß informs the Globe that since ;
Jan. 1, she has had patients from almost !
every county in Minnesota. No distinc- ,
tion is made with regard to race, color or j
religion. Most of the marine and railway
men in need of medical or surgical atten- '■
tion are taken to St. Joseph's. Board and
lodgings for patients in the wards is $6 |
per week, in single rooms $9, extra charg
es being made for medical attention or \
stimulants in both eases. The hospital al- ■
ways has a limited number of charity pa- I
tients. The institution is in charge of the i
sisters of St. Joseph, and in direct control
of a matron known as the superioress.
St. Luke's hospital, under the auspices j
of the Episcopal church, is a fine, airy '
brick building, located at 105 East Eighth
street. It will hold thirty patients when j
full, and during the fall had twenty
and some were refused admission on ac- ;
count of the nature of the diseases in hand. j
They were none of them contagious—no !
contagious diseases, like small-pox, diph- '
theria and scarlet fever, being admitted— i
but some needed the quiet of single I
rooms. The institution now has nine pa- i
tients, eight of whom are charity cases, and
here we may fay that the hospital is de- !
pendent for its smpport upon the free-will i
offerings of benevolent charity. Patients j
are taken from all denominations and of !
any country. A considerable number of I
Swedish Baptists have been attended the >
present year. Terms to persons having
means, vary from $16 per week in the best
rooms to $6 in the wards. A woman's i
ward and a bath room have been built the i
past summer, and further additions are j
hoped for during the coming season. The
officers of the institution are: Mrs. T. D. i
Barton, president; Mrs. Dalrymple. vice !
president; Mrs. J.Gilfillan.secretary: Mrs. ■
J. Wightman. treasurer. Mr. Sibley is j
president of the board of trustee*, and Dr.
Fulton, oculist. The board of physician?
is composed of Drs. Wharton.Flagjr.Senk
ler. Hand. Stone and Stamm, and the hos- j
pital is under the immediate control of the j
matron. Mrs. M. A. Bradbury, one of those ;
spmpathizing people, seldom met. whose ;
very cheerfulness is medicine for the sick. j
The Swedish hospital, located at Lake j
Como. and under the management of John '
Mellgren. admits only Swedish Lutherans. '
Its business during the season has been !
The Protestant Orphan asylum, loc-.ted \
near the city limits on Stewr.rt avenue.was j
founded in 1805 for the benefit of Protest- >
ant orphans and destitute children. Its i
present matron is Mrs. Jane A. Smith, and i
the number of inmates about thirty.
The House of Good Shepherd, under the !
charge of the Sisters of the Good Shep
herd, and under the immediate supervision
of Mother Mary of St. Bernard, is at pres- :
ent located on Wilkin street. A few I
months ago the board of control pur- j
chased five acres of land on St. Anthony
street, on which to erect a new asylum. :
The property is to be paid for with the ;
proceeds of the Ramsey legacy, amounting '.
to about $12,000. The institution a Imits i
orphan and homeless girl?.
The Home for the Friendless, founded in
18G7. is located at 13 Collins street, and
receives needful persons having no homes.
The Catholic Orphan asylum. Grove I
street, corner Olive, was founded in 1858. j
when it was located in a little building on \
Birch street. The institution now con- \
tains fifty-three girls, the beys having
been removed to a similar asylum in \
Minneapolis four years ago. All orphans
in need of a home are taken. The asylum
is controlled by a board of directors * act- i
ing with the Sisters of St. Joseph. Superi- i
oress Sister Josephine is in immediate
St. Joseph's (German) Orphan asylum, j

was formally opened on March 17, 1877. ,
The house is of brick, three stories high. ;

been made the past year, will accommo

German boys and girls. The society of !
St. Joseph controls the institution, and j
Sister Benedict is Superioress.

This includes the rail mills, two rod mills. 1
Booth mill, two bar mills. puddling mill, j

be closed. They have no work. President '

JOHN GARRIGAX DISCHARGED.
.Judge Cool if Fail* to Find JSeiflencc Suffi
cient to Hold Him to the rand Jury for
Kill ing -Joseph 3l<irz.
In the municipal court yesterday fore
noon the examination of John T. Garrigan.
charged with murder, was concluded, and
resulted in the discharge of the prisoner.
Garrigan wa? placed upon the witness
stand, and related his =tory which varied
very little from the testimony he gave be
fore the coroner's jury and published in
full in the Globe. The only important
difference may be summed up in the
statement that when before the cor
oner, he testified that Marz was
standing still when he struck him
Yesterday he swore that Marz was running
after him: that he chased him into the
street, when the witness stumbled upon a
club which he picked ~p and turning upon
his adversary without a thought, struck the
The case was then summed up at length
by the respective attorneys, at the conclu
sion of -which Jud^reCooley made a careful
review of the testimony and the tacts as
the court understood them.
He said that it was one of those unfortu
nate affairs, whichj like most of the crimi
nal cases brought before him. was the di
rect result of drinking intoxicants. Pa
rents should know where their sons and
daughters were evenings. In this case the
Marz party had been drinking, and the
other party was out on the street in a
crowd. Garrigan"s party were the a«sail
f.nt?And the people who had the least to
do wuh it —Marz and Garrigan—were the
sufferers. The testimony shows that Gar
rigan was endeavoring: to get away, but was
followed by Marz. He gra«ped a club in
tuitively, but not with murder in his heart.
He was sorry for the murdered man and
his family, and sorry for the boy, bnt there
no evidence of premeditated murder.
He wouid therefore discharge the prisoner.
The announcement was greeted with great
applause from the lobbr.

HOW A NOVELIST WORKS.
William Black's Method of Building a Ro
"William Black, the British novelist,
says a writer in "Rarpta** Magazine,
might pass for a member of any pro- i
fession except the clerical, or for an
ordinary gentleman of the time, until j
you came to know him v. ell enough to '
talk to him familiarly, and then you i
would find, as you always do in men '
who have made a mark on the current
history of the times, in whatever' direc- '
tion, something 'extraordinary in his '
talk and in his apppearance. You would :
first be impressed with the bead-like
brightness of Ms eyes, and its steadfast- j
ness: and then you would probably be
struck with the fact, if you were travel- :
ing with him, that every bit of natural !
phenomena going on around him is an '
object of constant interest to him; that
he knows the names of the birds that ,
you see and their habits; if you are at '
a sea-port, that he knows every class of
craft, and the name of every rope in its :
rigging; if you are talking of art. or ;
literature, or politics, that he has I
strong, well-formed opinions, and that i
he 15 perfectly frank and open in ex- I
pressing the»; and. moreover, fLat if
you do not want to talk, he can be as '
silent as an oyster. i
It is in these moments of quiet that !
Black is busiest. His muse is reflective, :
He indulges in long periods of '
incubation. At these times the novelist :
is possessed not by one spirit, but by :
many, by spirits both good arid evil: '
and not only by spirits but by plots, j
and not only by plots, but by words :
"Mv method of work," he says, in an
swer to my inquiries, "is, I 'think, a
pernicious one. and I should be very >
sorry to have it mentioned if it were to j
lead any young aspirants for literary j
fame to adopt it. Every man has his '
own way of working, and mine, I re- j
peat, is most objectionable, and a way I
warn any young man to avoid. From '
now until October in every year I write
nothing, hardly put pen to paper except
in the way of a private letter or to make
an occasional note. But I am at work
on my next novel. I put it into com
plete shape, even to the construction of
some of my sentences. I often keep
these in mv mind for two and three |
months. lam thus always ahead of my
writing to the last. Of course the
method has this advantage: You can
'work in* any incidents or circumstances
occurring in the interval that may suit
you. and you get familiar with*
characters; they become, as it were.
part of your family, part of your daily
life, which to me seems the awful part
of the business; working in this way 1
you have your story continually on your
shoulders, a Sindbad's Old Man of the
Sea." [.y .. }
We are at the novelist's chambers
overlooking the" Thames embankment.
It is April. The afternoon is warm, the
atmosphere gray. Sitting with his back
to the window, my host turns now and
then as if to let his thoughts» wander
down the river with the vessels that pass
to and fro—now a lumbering barge, now
a penny steamer, now a tug towing'along
a sort of aquatic procession.
"Do you make a summary or precis
of your story before you begin to
"Not on paper."
"Do you make notes of scenery, lo
calities, atmospheric effects ?"
"Yes, often very elaborate and care
ful notes, and especially ih regard to at
mospheric surroundings. If one does
not correctly and completely frame a
character or an incident, with a!! the
circumstances of the time and place,
one gets only a blurred page. For ex
ample, one may say, 'It was a beautiful
day.' But what kind of a beautiful day ?
It must be described so that the picture
shall be truthful and finished. .Every
human being 'in real-life has a back
ground, and must have in a novel if the
story is to appear real to the reader."
"There is nothing more charming in
fiction or in easy-writing, I feel im
pelled to add. "than the artistic use of
natural effects in the illustration of
character, and the development and ex
hibition of incidents, tragic or other
vise ; the pathos that may belong to a
gray morning or an evening mist, when
woven in with a sad thought or a ten
der episode, must have often touched

Webster in Boyhood.
When Daniel Webster went to school
at Exeter, N. H., he boarded at old
Squire Clifford's. Daniel had a bad
habit of holding his knife and fork per
pendicularly in his fists, and the Squire
thought it would be a kindness to re
form him : but as the boy was very sen
sitive he did not like to speak to him
directly. He therefore asked another
boy to hold up his knife and fork as
Daniel did. The boy agreed to make a
martyr of himself for the sake of the
moral lesson, and the Squire, on seeing
him present arms, apologized for speak
ing of it, brit said good manners were of
very great importance, and young men
should correct them before going out
into the world. The student thanked
him for his interest, promised not to
offend any more, and Daniel's knife and
fork were never set up again. At the
end of the next vacation he brought a
turkey from his father to the Squire as
an expression of his gratitude for Daniel's

A method employed in France, which
converts cider or other liquid into vine
| gar much more expeditiously than do
ordinary practices, prefaces the process
■with preparing the barrels or casks by
first scalding with water and next pour
ing into them boiling vinegar, rolling
the barrels and allowing them to stand
on their sides two or three days, until
they become thoroughly saturated with
the vinegar. This preparation over, the
barrels are filled about one-third full
with strong, pure cider vinegar and two
gallons of cider. Every eight days there
after two gallons of cider are added until
the barrel is two- thirds foil, in four
teen days after the last two gallons are
added the whole will have been con
verted into vinegar, one-half of which is
now drawn off and the process of filling
with cider begun again. In summer the
barrels during the process of conversion
are exposed to the rays of the sun, and
i in cold weather are stored where a uni
j form temperature of about eighty de-
I grees can be maintained.
