Paterson, N. J Nov. 29. A furthor
investigation by n Would reporter Into tho
business of distributing city shop work
through IWiiSc and ndjoining counticn has
ro culed n btcadily increasing business, tho
iixtcnt of which fow pooplo realize. Now
points of distribution aro being established,
and inoro agents aro being employed in this
now phoso of women's labor. Thoughtlessly,
no doubt, at first, tho stout, healthy farmers
wives and daughters wcro lod into a oompo
tition against their less fortunate sistors in
tho largo commercial centres. Although tho
city woman llttlo suspected it.tho reason why
tho shop work manufacturer has boon enabled
to continuously cut down her raoagro weekly
pittance, it has been bocauso ho had led tho
women in tho country to compoto against
her.
ADVANTAGES ALL ON ONE SIDE.
In this strife tho advantages aro nearly all
upon ono sido and againBt tho shop girls in
tho cities, who aro compelled, by ndvorso
circumstances, to labor at shop work for a
livelihood. With thorn it is a desperate hand-to-mouth
strugglo for tho absoluto ucccssi
ties of life. To them tho landlord comes
around with tho first day of tho month. A
few cetits' reduction Iv. tho price paid for
"finishing" a dozen shirts or waists means
an anguish that no ono can rcalizo who has
'not been in want. Not fun ci oil want, but tho
want of warmth, food, sholtor or sufficient
rlothing to go about in to perform daily
labor.
Tho city woman is compelled to livo in tho
homo of many lioors and many occupants.
Her quarters nro narrow and dark. Thutiilo
of fuel necessary to keop them habitablo is
jealously watched for fear of wnsto.
How different it is in tho country! There,
lasgo, niry rooms, with tho pure sunlight
streaming in through many windows, and a
bright, glowing tiro sending forth nuiplo
heat und cheorfulncss. In mott of tho
houses visited tliero woro two or moro work
ers busy. Their merry laugh aud happy
mien wero in striking contrast to tho appear
ance and circumstances of thoso whom they
woro forcing to greater distress. No rout to
pay, no added fuel to buy, a man or boy to
keen tho nro going and bring in tho wood tr
coal. Every nosh of tho busy little needle
and every turn of tho unwinding spool of
thread meant smaller wages for those, women
liko them, sistors in want, who, for reasons
of various causes, wero compelled to compoto
against hrnltli and strength, which must in
tlio cud drive poverty to the wall.
the pioneers in tub business.
Tho pioneers in this country branch of
shop work, so far as can be learned, wero
Levi it Prico, Now York manufacturers, who
built a mill in Paturson about fifteen years
ago. Paterson was solocted bocauso of tho
largo number of farmors who visit it weekly
tho year around to ninrkot thoir produce,
which is sold on tho opou street or dolivcrod
to privato customers.
In most of these farm wagons a wifo or
daughter is sure to bo found. Sho can stay
in tlio wagon whilo tho fnrmor carries away
his goods. Tho Manhattan Shirt Mills, as
Levi .t l'rico called their new venturo, was
built in Itiver street, through which most of
tho farmers drivo to tho Main street market.
Signs of inducement woro hung out to tlio
country peoplo, and tho market wagons soon
begun to stop at tho shirt mill on their way
homo, until twenty nt n time could bo
counted thoro on n big market day.
A little work wus given, to bo returned tho
next week. Tho farmers' wives and daugh
ters told others, and tho now sourco of rev

Driving through tho country to-day, it is
no uncommon sight to see before eucii win

In somo cases tho work is done to really
cam a living, but in most cases this is not
true in tho country, wiicro tho husbands or
fathers of tho workors own thoir homes, and
vhoro tho oxpenscs aro met by money from
tho outside work.
The Would reporter in this travels was
shown a sot of furniture, a now carpet, a sot
of curtains, and, in ono caso, a wedding out
fit bought by money earned at shop work.
Ono woman said that her husband hud moro
thun $1,000 saved up to build a houso, and
sho wnH working to get mouoy " to furnish it

proporty that could bo sold for $16,000. His
wifo ww working at tho maehine to buy a sot
of lino curtains for her parlor.
Levi t Prico, after threo years, separated.
Tho original plant was kept by Levi t
Wechslcr. They havo 120 families stopping
nt their mills for work, and ninny of tho
farm-wagons on tlio market will bo found to
enrry n bundle of finished Bhiits to bo loft at

Health and an expression of chlldmh
Bftllsfnctlon, sat down to one of the hackneyed In
struments, and In loss than an hour had roused a
thoroughly critical audience to wonderful enthu
siasm. Young Josef Hofmann, extensively advertised by
Mr, Henry K. Abbey as tho musical marvel of the
age, gave n private coucert to the press and Mr.
Atibcj's frlendJ. The result snowed that nothing

must say that I havo never heard llttlo Uofmann's

Ho gavo Mendelssohn's "Hondo Caprlccloso"
superbly. (I don't think I'vo uced that superlative
before). Hut ho was most successful lu one of
Chopin's waltzes an extremely difficult one. Ills
execution was extremely brilliant, his touch
staccata and sure, and his rendition absolutely
correct. Nothing better could have been heard.
If young; Hofmann nlayed only this waltz ho
would bo worth paying to hear.

was evident that young Josot did somo extremely
effective work. IIo also played n mazourku and

not necessary to say very much. Then Itudolph
Aronson blushlngly suggested ten bars or so of his
exquisite two-by-thc-hour waltzes and young
Hofmann elaborated upon it In a truly artistic
manner, while too audience went wild with de
light. After the recital I spoko to young Hofmann, but
found he was too young and lnuocent to be Inter

Walk Into tlio Itiver by Accident t-bnee
In IHooinlnsdnlr, but Ilcllevrd to IIslt
1'uUy Itccovcrcd Her Mental Health.
Tho mystery surrounding tho disappear,
nnco of pretty Mary J. Lynn, is to-day as
doop as ovor. It is just a week to-night since
Iho girl budo her sibter good night and
Blnrtcd for tho Sovonth Avenno United Pros
bytorlrm Church. Sinco that timo, kindrod
and friends havo discovered nothing of her
whereabouts. Tho theory was first ndvancod
that sho had fallen into evil hands, but that
theory has gradually given way to othors,
equally piausiblo porhups, but allko fruitless.
Miss Lynn wns young, modest, Intelligent K
and unassuming, with a round, pretty faco, . '
big eyes and a lot of wavy, brown hair. Sho ,'
lived with hor parents at 253 West Twenty,
first street, and was employed nt Lo Boutlllier
Brothers', West Twcnty-third street, Bho
was always full of fun and was always willing
to sharo another's burden, howovor heavy it
chanced to be.
Threo years ago tho young girl overworked
herself, nnd as a consequence was stricken
with malaria, her brain was affected nnd sho
spout a period in tho Bloomiugdalo Asylum.
After herdischnrgo nil her old animation
seemed to return, and no indications wero
noticed of aberration of mind.
.Tuesday ovening Miss Lynn left homo to
visit her sister. Mrs. Fanny Kcnnody. who
lives nt Cll West Twonty-flrst street. Sho ro.
maiucd thcro somo timo, nud about 8 o'clock
btnrted for church to attend tho singing,
school, whither hor sister Knto had previously
gone. The missing girl was vory religious and
was exceedingly interested in hor Sunday,
school class, ns well as in hor musical work.
Tho girl nover reached tlio church. Anxious,
yot not dreaming of what had happened,
Knto hurried home, expecting to find her
sister thero, hut sho had not made hor ap.
pcaranco ; and from that hour father, mothor
and friends havo been waiting, with an ever,
increasing heart sickness, for somo niessago
lrom tho mibsing ono.
When Mary lett her sister's sho was in good
health, physically nud mentally. Policemen
on duty that night intlio neighborhood say
thcro wcro- no suspicious porsons around
tliero nor did they hear of any accident. Tho
entiro polico forco has beon notified to look
otttforjtho girl, and tho city hospitals havo
been searched but nothing has been learned.
Whero Mrs. Kennedy Hvcb is but a short 'i
dlstunco from tlio North Hivcr. and friends
fear that in a moment of excitement tho girl
may havo becomo confused, turned down tbe
streot towards tho water instead of in tho
other direction, nnd, beforo sho was awaro of
it, stepped to death in tho river. Her out
cries for help in that deserted district might
well bo unheaid. So Btrongly is this theory
entertained that guards havo been stationed
along shore, nnd tho work of dragging tho
river is proposed,
Tho pleasant apartments occupied by Mrs.
Lynn iinvo now moro tho appearanco of a
houso whoro a wako is in progress than any
thing olso, though, as ono gray hairod friend
said. "If it wero a wako one would know j
what to do and whnt ono was doing ; as it is,
though, how terriblo is it."
Tho mothor and father, haggard nnd enro.
worn.tmco tho narrow rooms incessantly. ,'
At each tiuglo of tho boll they start, hoping
that it may bo the forerunner of welcomo i
news concerning tho missing daughter.
"When Inst soon tho missing girl wore a
dark choviot dress, with light colored waist, .'
trimmed with bluo braid ; a black jacket,
and a felt hat. trimmed with blue and whito .
ribbon. .1
BRUSSELS KET AND BULLION.
The nrcM Deslcncd to do Killing Work for .'
a Married Hello In Washington.
A gorgeous gown, fresh from tho skilful
fingers of ono of Gotham's artistes modistes,
nnd designed to do killing work this winter
in Washington, is mado of black Brussels f
net, richly embroidered in bullion and col- -4
orccl silks, draped over black moiro antiquo g
This embroidery is dull rather than showy, f
and suggestive of nono of tho vulgarity of
tho gold laco and cheap tinsel effects now '
soeu on many costumes, but it gathers all '"J
tho light into itself and flings it back with a
Eort of glow as lovoly as it is indescribable. ,'
Tho long train of moire is bordered with
full soft plisee supples of plain Brussels not,
a tiny sache of tho net finished tho edgo of
the moire petticoat but tho drapery is en
tirely of tho embroidered Brussels net and
caught on tho left hip in tho graceful fashion
known as a "Mnrguerlto," it falls in glitter. '
iug waves to tho foot and is again drawn
softly back undor tlio folds of tho rich train.
Tho poiutod corsago is half of moire, half
of net, has a narrow " V " of tho embroidery,
and a Bcrtho of tho plain Brussels net is car.
ricd in soft folds ovor the shoulders and down
to a sharp, closo point between the shoulders.
Tho modest prico paid for this charming
croation by a married bollo was $375. the)
piece of embroidered net which formed the
drapery alono being estimated at 8250.
