IsriCIAt, TO TU WORLD.
riTTsntmo, Nov. 80. A meeting of tho
Flint Glass Manufacturers' Association,
numboring over fortyt firms and employing
3,600 men, hold to-day is callod to consider
tho now scnlo to bo prcsontod to tho work
men. Tho provisions will coubo surprise
and moot determined rcsistenco from tho
men. Tho manufacturers will demand tho
abolition of tho "movo" system, paying
henceforth rates by tho hundred pioces of
ware. Permission will bo given to Buch of
tho operators as prefer it to retain tlio
" movo " system to oloso for tho prosont, tho
manufacturers proscribing, howovcr, a
uniform limit for all linos of waro with tho
Mages proportioned to thoso of factories
working by the-piocc. Tho committee has
taken an ovorago netweon tho highest and
lowest "movo" in tho various factories to
cstimnto tho avorago por hundred pieces.
This is tho most important point in tho
now scalo which will bo presented to tho
workmen about tho 1st of Docombor. Tho
principal objection of tho manufacturers to
tbo workmen's scalo is its total lnok of uni
formity, tho verywngos ostensibly alike in
all factorios varying from 28 to 200 per cent.
Ono rittsbnrg firm complains that thoy aro
allowed to innko but 600 and 700 to tho turn
of tho samo articles, when tho Union Glass
Company, working under tlio samo system
and union rules, got 700 and 000 nor ton in,
and aro paying tlio samo wagos. This is tho
principal objoction to tbo workmen's scalo
and list of "movos." Tho manufacturers will
insist upon a writton contract, to bo signed
the 1st of caoh January, binding both
parties for a year and govornlng the prices ns
well as tho numbor of pioces which shall
constitute a "movo."
Edward Idbboy, of tho New England Glass
Works, said last night : " Yes, I shall movo
my plant to tho natural gas bolt. I havo not
docided whero I shall locato, but havo many
flattering offors for erecting ray factories.

James Gillinder, of Gillindor t Sons'
works, of Philadelphia, said : "I think wo

Kj) ODRU FOR LEPROSY.
How the nrcndfnl I)Icno ! eAllowed to
Uxlat In the Holy Land.
Alfred A. Green, of D27 East Seventeenth
stroet, who has written to tho Board of
Health, in Philadelphia, saying that ho could
euro cases of leprosy, and wished lo go there
andjoperato upon Mrs. Mirando and her
daughter, says that ho is not a pliysician, but
simply a humble Christian who knows a
thing or two and has neen many lepers. Mr.
Groon was not nt .homo to-day whon a
would roportor caued upon mm.
A gentleman now in this city, who has lived
twonty years off nnd on in tho Holy Laud,
where leprosy first originated, says that ho
must doubt very much whothor Mr. Green
or anybody olso can ouro a root caso of lep
rosy. Somo thirty years ago a woll-known
English physician said that ho could euro
this lontiiBomo diseaso, and ho went out to
Jerusalem, whero it is so prevalent, to put
his thoory into practice For six monthB ho
camo into oloso contact with tho lepers, tak
ing no precautions whilo trying to cure them.
Ho caught tho diseaso and was reported to
havo committed suicido, preferring immedl.
oto death to dying by inches. Since then it
has been conceded by all physicians that lop
rosy is incurable.
In Jaffa, Jorusalcm, Ramloh and other
cities in Palestine tho travoller has to pass
lepors daily, begging in tho streets, and thoy
w ill often pluck pcoplo by tho bIoovo or coat
tail with thoir stubby flngors to obtain a
" sahtont" (fifth part of a cont).
Loprosy is not as catching now as it usod to
bo. A person is only liablo to catch it if ho
touches or comes into closo contact with a
lopcr. It could easily bo exterminated if tho
Turkish Government would provont loners
from intermarrying. Tho children look
robust and healthy until they aro nbout
twelve years old, then tbo diseaso first ap.
pears. The fingers, toes and none aro first
aton up by tho diseaso, thou the arms and
legs, until thore is nothing but tho hulk of a
body. Finally it commences to cat round
tha Internal organs and tho porsou is deliv
ered from his living death. Lost winter a
fellah (peasant) near Kainleh caught tho dis
ease and shot himself. Thero aro occasion,
ally similar cases.
Dogs That Were Faithful to Death.

dents occurring reoently. It will be remembered
that about two montha ago Mr. John Dollorf, of
