The Coral Fishers of Capri.
The truth is that coral fishing is a sla
very to which nothing but sheer p&verty
drives the fisherman. From April to
October their life is a life of ceaseless
drudgery. Packed in a small boat with
out a deck, with no food but biscuit and
foul water, touching land only at inter
vals of a month, and often deprived of
sleep for days together through short
ness of hands, the coral fishers are ex
posed to a constant brutality from tljo
masters ot their vessels winch is too hor
rible to bear description. The lishinrr is
itself hard work. The two beams of
wood laid crosswise, with hemp and
loose netting attached to them, which
serves as a dredge, are dragged along
the sea bottom with a rope which itsome
times requires the crews of half a dozen
boats to haul to the surface. j it breaks
the whole boat is in peril; if the sailor
who is paying it out fails to notice when
it catches the coral, his thigh, over which
it runs, is cut to the bono. A long pull
tears the branches entangled in the net
from the rock, or breaks off rock and all,
and a shout of joy bursts from the wea
ried fishermen as the tangled mass of
coral appears above the waves. To the
masters the fishery is lucrative enough;
of the 8,000 francs which form the re
turns of a single boat, some 2,000 francs
are clear profit. Rut measured by our
English notions, the pay of the men
seems miserably inadequate to the toil
and Buffering which they undergo. For
the whole period of eight months, it va
ries with the strength and experience, of
the seamen from 12 to 18, the boys
receiving as little as i'4, and much of
this is absorbed by the extortionate shop
keepers of Torre. Enough remains how
ever, to tempt the best of the Capresc
fishermen to sea. Even a boys earnings
will pay his mother's rent. For the
young man it is the onlv mode in which
he can hope to gather a sum sufficient
for marriage and his start it) life. The
early marriages so common at Naples
and along the adjoining coast, are un
known at Capri, where a girl seldom
weds before twenty, anil where the poor
est pei'sant refuses the hand of his daugh
ter to a suitor who cannot furnish a wed
Uiiitr settlement of some i,'20.. Even
with the modern rise of wages, it is al
most impossible for a lover to accumu
late Buch a sum from the produce of his
ordinary toil, aud his one resource is the
The toil and suffering of the Summer
are soon forgotten when the young fish
ermen returns and adds his earnings to
the store of former years. When the
store is complete the ceremonial of a
Caprcse betrothal begins with "the em
bassy," as it is termed, of his mother to
the pareuts ot the Juture untie. C4aa
in her bcai array, aim homing in her
hand the favorite nosegay of tho island,
a branch of sweet basil sprinkled with
cinnamon powder and with a rose-colored
carnation in the midst of it, the
old fish wife makes her way through
the dark lunestothe vaulted room where
her friend awaits her, with a charming
air of ignorance as to the errand on which

Book Printing in China.
The process of printing a book in Chi
na is somewhat as follows: Two pages
are written by a person, trained to the
business, on a sheet of thin paper divi
ded into columns by black lines, and in
the place between the two pages are
writ .tn the title of the work, and the
number of the chapter and page; when
the sheet has been printed, it is folded
down through this space, so as to bring
the title tfcc, partly on each page. The
sheet when ready for printing, is pasted
face downward on a smooth block of
wood, usually from the pear or plum tree.
As soon as it is dry, the paper is rubbed
off with great care, leaving behind an
inverted impression of the characters.
Another workman now cuts away all the
blank spaces by means of a sharp gra
ver, and the block, with the characters
in high relief, passes to the printer, who
perform his work by hand. The two
points that he has to be most careful
about are to ink the characters equally
with his brush, and to avoid tearing the
paper when taking the imprcbSion.
Proclamations, visiting cards &., are
all printed iu the same manner. An
economical, wayf printing small hand
bills and advertisements for walls is to
cut the characters in wax instead of
wood; but they soon get blurred, and
the printing tioiu them is almost illegi
ble. From a good wooden block some
15,000 sheets can bt printed, and when
tho characters have been sharpened up
a little, it is possible to obtain 8,000 or
10,000 more impressions.
There is a man in Titusville, Pa., who
is so affectionately fond of his wife that
he is jealous if a man looks within forty
five degrees of the direction in which
she may happen to be. The other day a
gentleman spoke to her, and ho immedi
ately threatened suicide, liis wife was
Bent for a bottle of poison, which she
had put up at the druggist's consisting
of a little water, colored with a little
liquorice, and bottled with a glaring
poison label outside. When he threat
ened to take some of it, and actually
poured some of it into a wine-glass, she
screamed for help and ran into another
room, where she could watch him through
the key-hole, and saw him coolly open
the window and throw it out.
She then rushed back, apparently fran
tic with grief, and implored him not to
do the rash deed, lie merely pointed at
the glass, and lying down on tho floor,
began to kick out his legs like a lumping
jack. She told him she was determined
to share his fate, and swallowed tho rest
ot the liquorice water, whereupon he be
came really frightened, calling the neigh
bors confessed he only shammed, and
said that if Bhe survived he would never
trouble her again. : Then she explained
the ruse, and he was so mortified he
tried .to buy up the silence of the neigh
bors, but the story was too good to keep.
Ho is thoroughly cured.
Bayard Taylor writes to the Tribune
a more encouraging account of matters
and things at Vienna than we have been
accustomed to hear of late. He says
"I made a general tour of inspection
this afternoon, and satisfied myself that
ly the end of the month very few of
the promised glories of the Exhibition
will fail. Since the first confusion has
been oterconie, the work will advance
more rapidly. The'entire space occupied
by -all tho buildings must be more than
a square mile, but nearly all of the de
tached structures are under roof, many
of them quite completed externally, and
tho removal of the rubbish will speedily
change the aspect of the grounds.
. In the half mile long build
ing for machinery there are only the
merest beginnings. . A few colossal
groups of copper and steel work have
been erected; model locomotives and
passenger cars block up the aisle, boxes
with labels trom all Europe and Ameri
ca are piled around by thousands, but
no single steam engine has yet been set
up. W e shall hardly see any machinery
in operation for a month to come. This
part of tho Exposition, however, will
eventually fur surpass any display of the
kind that has ever been made.
lie also savs that if America will only
be patient, she will find that in certain
departments her exhibited specimens
will "beat the world." We are glad
that so favorable a statement has been
made by so sensible and reliable an ob
server as Mr. Taylor. -
' Love foe his Mother. Of all the
love affairs in the world, hone can sur
pass the true love of a big boy for his
mother. It is a love pure and noble,
honorable in the highest degree to both.
I do not mean merely a dutiful affect
ion. I mean a love which makes a boy
gallant and courteous to his mother, say.
ing to everybody plainly that he is fair
ly in love with her. Next to the love
nf her husband, nothinc so crowns
woman's love with honor as this seoond
love, thia devotion of the son to her.

Netting for Windows and Doors.
If we would have cool parlors, dining
rooms and kithens, and bedrooms, during
the hot summer weather, we must have
mosquito tiettiiig or wire gauze in all
windows, and, it possible, at the doors
also.. Window blinds cannot tuke the
place of netting or gauze, because they
exclude so much of the cool evening and
night air; although they are very essen
tial and needful to shut out the hot sun
shine and the beating storm, yet they
will not answer all our needs. Mosqui
to netting can be purchased at a very
cheap rule, and the "gude mon" cau
easily make or procure some frames to
fit all the windows, which can be either
painted or stained a dark red to mutch
the sashes of the window. Then dark
blue, pink, green, or white netting can
be easily stretched and tacked over them
by the bkilliul ringers of the home-mother;
and alter she lias used them for one
summer nothing could persuade her to
go without them another season. They
will exclude mosquitoes, flies, mollis and
all other insects, and will not exclude
the fresh cool air. They are very easily
taken out und put in; or they cau be so
urranged that the windows can be closed
on dump, cool days. Any woman can
tack a piece of the netting across the
lower half of the window on the outside
of the sasli, if that is the onlv means she
cau employ. The wire gauze requires a
workman's handling, and it can be made
into permanent shades which will with
stand all weathers. When we have tried
the good effect of these shades, we must
also have the doors attended U. A
slight framework of pine can be made,
and fastened to the outer dooi -posts by
means of strong hinges; aud with a hasp
to fasten it with, ana a handle to open
it by, we can bid defiance to flies uud
mosquitoes both by day and night.
Common tools aud a little ingenuity are
needed to prepare a door blind, or shade
for the outer kitchen piazza, which will
add fur beyond its cost to the comfort
of the cook and housewife. Mosquito
netting can do duty for the shade when
the door liamo is ready; but coarse wire
netting such us is used for scivesuud the
like, would be far preferable, because
it would last: for a long time,
while the cotton netting is usualy de
stroyed in two years, in using the cot-
tou netting, however, lor the windows,
it is well to select the pure white for tho
parlor, pink lor the chambers, and green
or blue for the kitchen, pantry, and
milk-iojin.- Country Gentleman.
A Strange Meeting.
In the New York Dispatch, of a re
cent date, we find an incident growing''
out of the Kebcllion, under the above
heading, and the journal referred to re
lates that how, on an evening or two
previous,. a good looking man, a laborer
about thirty years of age4 took the tars
at Center street depot, Newark, for
.New York. There was but one vacant
seut in the car that he entered, and that
was by the side of a handsome aud ele
gantly dressed lady. The man sut
down, and, after his fair companion had
removed her vail, ho was surprised to
recognizo his wife, whom he had not
seeu lor juore than twelve years. The
lady threw her arms around his neck

It seems that they had been married
just before the breaking out of the wur,
at the home of the ludy in Missouri.
Her father was the owner of a large
tract of land, but had only a little mon
ev. He ioined the rebel cause, and the
d iiighter also strongly adhered to the
opinions ot her lather. Her husband,
uowever, was -a decided. Union man.
She abused him violently on account
his principles, and told hiin if he sided
with the bloody Yankees he might
leave tho place, aud she never wished to
seeliis face again. He took her at her
word, and the same night left and join
ed Fremont's army as a private. He
was several times taken prisoner, and
often escaped into our lines." He press
ed on with Sherman toward the sea,
and at tho conclusion of his term of en
listment he joined a New Yodt regiment
and by-this means, at the end ot the
war. found his way to Newark, where
ho has since worked quietly in a factory.
- His wife's father was killed at Vicks
burg, and she was left solo possessor
his uncultivated farm. She supported
herself by working in a millinery estab
lishment in St. Louis till after the close
of the war. Her land rose in value,
and she 6old it for a good price, realizing
about $5,000. With this sum she start
ed a millinery store of her own. in St.
Louis, and succeeded splendidly. She
is reported worth $40,000 or 50,000.
She was on her way to New York
buy goods when she met tho man whom
she had supposed long ago dead. Re
morseless for driving him away, she re
fused all offers of marriage. 1 he joy
ous meeting caused the husband to for
get his wile s error, and the present oi
new suit of clothes, a diamond ring and
splendid gold watch, when they arrived
iuNewlork, served materially to in
crease his respect and affectiou for
long lost wife. They are stopping at
fushionable hotel joyous over the acci
