What promises to be an exceedingly in
teresting football game will lake place this
afternoon at Exposition Park. The con
testing teams will be the local association
team and the eleven from Wilmerding.
The latter team have not been Ion; organ
iied hot they have made quite an excellent
rerird since they commenced. There are
several well known and good players in the
team and they will come here to-day full of
confidence. They have beaten somecood
teams and to-day's game will give some
thing of an idea as to how the Pittsburg
te&ni compare with those in the nearby
towns.
The local team for to-day's game are
strong. Pool, one of the half backs, is of
the reserve team and he is scheduled to
plav to-day 60 as to give him a try with the
regulars. The game will commenc at 3
o'clock promptly. The teams will line up

During a conversation last evening Secre
tary Matthews jaid: "We want all the
local association teams to play us so as to
get the public interested in the game. We
are figuring on getting a team together to
represent Western Pennsylvania at the
World's Fair in the association contests. I
think we can set as gooda team together in
Western Pennsylvania as can be lound in
the Tnited States or Canada. Plenty of
support is j roinised us to try the venture.
SMITE'S MONET IS TJP.
His Backer Deposits SoOO for a Go at
CIloj nskL
John J. Quinn, backer of El Smith, yes
terday deposited $300 for Smith to fight
Choynski for the largest purse that can be
obtained and a perse of 51,000 a side. Dur
ing a conversation last evening Mr. Quinn
said-
'I have covered the S500 said to be up
lor Chovnski to fight Smith mostly to see if
tl.e afiair is a bluflf or not We never had
any intention of challenging Choynski, but
vp arc not atraid of him. It is ioolishness
to talk about fighting outside of a club for a
fake Nobody will agree to that, and I
venture to say that Choynski and Parson
Paries will not allow anybody to make a
match for tbem. If a purse can be ob
tained, however, we can forward our money
to the club giving the purse and it can be
stakeholder. The sooner a parse is obtained
the better. It is useless talking about a
contest if a club does not offer a purse. If
we lose we do not want a cent"
CHAMPION COEBEITS BEQUEST.
He Wants a S75.000 1'urse for Mr. Mitchell
and Himself.
New York. Dec. 30. It transpires that
Corbett's manager, Brady, and a repre-si-n'ative
of the Crescent City Athletic
Club met on Broadway last night and the
visitor inquired what purse Corbett would
fight Mitchell for. "For as much as he
can get," replied Brady.
" Well, the Coney Island club has already
offered 550,000 for the contest and I suppose
il we waut it we will hare to give "53,000,"
said the Crescent City man. "Well, you
might have to no a few pegs higher. Cor
btt wants a ?75,000 purse."
"Will von sign now?" asked the Kew
Orleans matchmaker. "Xo, sir. We will
wait awhile," said Brady as they parted.
Looks Very Suspicions.
Whtelixg, Dec. 30. Some local sports
t'ave about made up their minds that the
: ve contest between Jimmy Rowan
ar-i Smith was a raw fake. One man hunted
up Rowan's PittBburg record and found out
Lat he had a decided objection to "merit
crntests " Smith is a cheap variety actor
.t ot work. In substantiation of the charge
trat those on the "inside" knew how the
hattle was going to result and placed their
jis according!, many persons called atten-
T id to the fact that Smith got a number of
o.vs in on his autagonist during his rush
r he final round, and when time was called
i 1 1 Ins corner, vet did not respond when
i'me u as again called.
Was Bound to Win.
Trursdav evening Van Heest was ds-ea-ed
by Sol Smith in one of the tmfairest
.gat on record, according to reports. Smith
-peaieclv threw Van Heest down and fell
o him On one occasion Smith hit Van
1'eest as the latter was rising. In another
i-und Smith not only threw Van Heest
(.own, but pressed his knees into Van
Heest'sneck. This was in the fourteenth
round, when Van Heest became unconscious

ABOUT PLUNGES EMIIH.
Causes That Led to His Collapse as a Turf
Speculator.
New Yoek, Dec 30. There are stories
from the West afloat among racing men
here to the effect that Chris Smith, owner
of the Kendall stables and the most des
perate man on the turf, is "broke" and
that his stable of horses will have to be sold
to meet his indebtedness. This in spite of
the fact that his stable, which cost him
about 33,000 to run during the season, won
about 80,000 in stakes and purses. The
principal winners were Yo Tambien, 537,
420; Van Buren, 58,480, Ceverton, 57,345;
Dolly McCone, 55,460; Maid Marian, 54.805,
and Queen Enid, 52,12a Smith now has 20
horses in his stable, having recentlv sold
Queen Enid and one other to parties who
will race them at Gloucester track.
Smith has operated in the West almost
exclusively and is a sample of the gambler,
pure and simple, that ntcing has produced.
He is but SG years old and is a native of
Painesville, O., though he was brought up
jn Oil City, where his father struck oil
while Chris was a lad. Chris got his gamb
ling instincts from association with the oil
sharpers who were making and losing for
tunes heavily during the height of the oil
excitement, and when he was about 20 years
old he began backing horses for a living,
and he has kept at' it ever since, with all
sorts of varying fottunes,such as are sure to
overtake the man who plays as he does.
His transactions in the pool rooms and bet
ting on last election are said to have aggre
gated about 54,000,000.
At one time last fall Smith was "broke"
and saw ruin staring him in the face. But
that day one of John Huffman's horses won
a purse of 5400 and the trainer made a
present of the purse to Smith, who bad
always been a liberal employer. He went
at the came the following day and in a week
was the possessor of 540,000 "iu cash. Uow
he is again without a dollar, owes 5150,000,
is barred out of most of the Western pool
rooms and will probably have to part with
his stable, which is the strongest in the
"West, with the exception of Marcus Daly's,
and is said to be worth 5125,000.
Corrigan Gains a Point.
Chicago, Dec 30. The cases against
Edward Corrigan and the Hawthorne race
track are proving remarkably barren of re
sults in the way of suppression, the end
aimed at. To-day two cases were dismissed,
the principal witnes, Sanford A. Birdsell,
tailing to appear. Had Birdsell come into
court he would have been arrested for al
leged conspiracy, the complainant being a
horse owner named Williams, who, at
Birdsell's instance, was taken into custody
by mistake during one ot the police raids
on Hawthorne.
Big Pnrso ror Trotters.
BOSTON, Dec 30. David H. Blanchard,
of Boston, has decided to give a 510,000
pnrse, divided 55,000, 52,500, 51,500 and
51,000, open to all trotting stallions of the
2:12 class for a race at Mystic Park Septem
ber 13, 1893.
Gaolic Athletic Games.
Chicago, Dec 30. The New York
Gaelic Association to-day challenged the
Illinois Gaelic Association to a series of
championship athletio games next summer.
It is proposed that half the series be played
a't KidgewooJ, . Brooklyn, and the other
half at or near the World's Fair grounds,
Chicago. It is possible that an- interna
tional Gaelic championships series may follow.
TO BEVIVfi SCULLING.
James A. St. John Slakes an Interesting;
proposition to the Bowers.
James A. St John, of rowing fame, hat
sent the following letter to the leading
newspapers:
"I recognize the fact that there are a great
many fast scullers for half a mile, beside
many who can go a mile at top speed.
"Now, I propose giving or getting up a
sweepstake race for the half-mile, mile and
three-mile distances, so that there will be a
chance for three sculling championships, I
will offer suitable emblems, which may be
held bv the winners of these events until
they are defeated. The principal condition
I will make is that the holder qt the cha'ai
pionshin shall be open to a challenge at his
particular distance twice during the rowing
season, and tor an amount not exceeding
51,000 a side.
"My idea is to have the first race a sweep
stake, say of 6100, lrom each entry in the
two short distances, and 5500 in the three
mile event The profits of the gate receipts
could also be divided, so that the first three
men to finish in each race would receive a
wart
"All three events could be decided on one
day, and I feel confident that there would
be a good list of competitors and a splendid
attendance Of course, if there were many
entries, hea's would have to be rowed, but
I think one day wonld be sufficient.
"Let the management of the champion
ship races be placed in the hands of com
petent men who enjov the confidence of
both the scullers aud 'the public; let the
scullers row on their merits, and I believe
that shell aquatics will once more enjoy the
popularity that it should enjoy."
COMISREY'S OPINION.
He Favors the Idea of Pnttlnj the Pitcher
Back rive Feet.
CDrcnrirATI, Dec 30. ISneeial Cap
tain Comiskey to-day declared himself in
favor of putting the pitcher back five feet.
He had a long conference with Mr. Brush,
and as the latter is a member of the Rules
Committee, it is certain that Mr. Brush
will favor the change indorsed by Comis
key. It is considered certain that the only
change of importance in the baseball play
ing rules will be that ot putting the pitcher
back.
Captain Comiskey also scored the um
pires severely for not strictly enforcing the
playing rules. Comiskey contends that
there are many rules which are almost daily
violated, simplv because the umpires
haven't the nerve to enforce them.
What Nick Young Says.
"Washinoton-, Dec 30. ISpecuil' Dur
ing an interview to-day President Young,
of the Baseball League, said Jhat in all
probability the Chicago, Louisville, St.
Louis, Cincinnati and Baltimore teams
would play Sunday games next season.

OUTSIDE BOYS AT 2I0BGANZA.
Judgo Martin, at New Castle, Says
the
Townships Blast Foot the Ullls.
Newcastle, Dcc30. SfnaZ. Judge
J. Norman Martin has rendered a decision
which aflects every county in Western
Pennsylvania, and also ever county sending
minors to the Allegheny County Eeform
School. The decision was given in the case
of the county of Lawrence against the town
ship of Big Bun, and is a test case.
About three years ago young Orville
Moore was tried for borne offense and
sentenced to the Eeform School at Mor
ganza, Allegheny eounty. After his term
bad expired, the County Commissioners
attempted to collect the bill for the main
tenance of the boy at the farm from the
school authorities of the township where
the boy had lived. The poor authorities,
also, refused to pay the bill, onthe ground
that young Moore had been sent to Mor
ganza on sentence of court, and, therefore,
the whole county is liable, and not the
township. Nearly every township in the
county, and the city of New Castle as well,
have boys in the Eeform School under cir
cumstances mnch the same. Judge Martin
decided that the 'township in which the
minor had a residence is responsible, and
not the county.
THE FIGHT FOE S0MEBBY.
Pennsylvania and Indiana Officials Dis
pute Over Iron Hall Jurisdiction'
Philadelphia, Dec 30. District At
torney Graham announces his intention to
go to Harrisburg to fight the Indiaua au
thorities who are oil the way with requisi
tion papers for Supreme President Somerby
and the other Iron Hall officials. The
offense with which they are charged is a
misdemeanor, and the man cannot be ar
retted without a warrant, which cannot be
issued until Governor Pattison grants requi
sition papers.
The argument which the District Attor
ney will use is that the offenses were com
mitted in thTs city and should be tried here.
Joseph Gladding, C H. Baker and J. P.
Eckerslev, the Iron Hall officials who'were
indicted in Indiauapolis fortaking 5200,000
of the order's funds, were arrested here
this evening on a warrant sworn out by
State Bank Examiner Krnmfhaar, charging
them with conspiracy in this State to di
vert that moncyto their own use
FEDERATION FLAN EEP0KTED,
But the Itailroad Brotherhood Representa
tives Still Fall to Agree.
Cedar Eapids, L., Dec 30. Another
day has passed, and the representatives of
the railroad trainmen in session here are no
nearer to an agreement than they were Jast
night. The committee of fire then ap
pointed to draft a pliu of federation re
ported this morning in favor of system fed
eration. The employes of any railroad sys
tem may decide lor themselves upon a union
and it will bind them alone.
This plan has been discussed the entire
day, section by section and lrom every pos
sible standpoint. At one time it was
thought an agreement wonld be 'easily
reached to-night, but new difficulties came
up, leaving tbem apparently but little
nearer together than at first.

Crr of Mexico, Dec 30. Seven persons

iTHE'MOZART CONCERT.
Highly Successful Rendition
the Messiah at Old City Hal!.-
of
THE QUARTETTE EEALLY FINE,
And the Orchestra and Chorus Both Heard
to Good I fleet
A REVIEW OP THE EVENING'S MUSIC
Every seat in the Old City Hall was
taken last night at the Mozart Club's fourth
annual performance of Handel's "Mes
siah." The concert was interesting for
several reasons. ' First, it introduced tbe
best quartet that Pittsburg has ever heard
in this production; secondly, the enlarged
chorus and orchestra filled the gap that
marred previous occasions, and thirdly, the
existence of a noteworthy harmony during
the whole evening had an unusually visible
eQect upon the audience, which allowed no
number to be rendered without liberal ap
plause. The chorus did some splendid work in
every particular; the sopranos aud the altos
sang feelingly and with great purity, and
were ably supported by the men's voices.
Every number was rendered with a concen
trated force and agreeable softuess rarely
found in a musical bodv of this kind. It is
gratifiying to know that Pittsburg, when
the occasion demands it, can muster 35 such
able instrumentalists as composed the or
chestra last night Its execution in sub
dued passages was very refined and it
attained, considering its size, a real
dynamic effect in the forcible crescendoes.
Mrs. Bishop a Great Success.
The greatest interest, of course, centered
in the soloists. Mrs. Genevra Johnstone
Bishop, ot Chicago, sang tbe soprano part.
She has been heard here before and, if pos
sible, added to the favorable impression al
ready created. Lately there has been a great
deal of newspaper discussion about tbe
Windy City becoming the seat of art and
letters in America. If Chicago has many
literateurs and singers of the class to which
Mrs. Jobnstone-Bishop belongs the ques
tion of that city's aesthetic superiority
seems only to be a matter of time
This la'iy is without doubt one of the best
oratorio singers before the American pub
lic to-day. Her voice is remarkably rich
and pure: its freshness is rare and welcome,
and her execution accurate to a marked de
gree She sings with a wonderful amount
of spirit and. expression, and her vocal en
durance is nearly inexhaustible The
high range of her voice was
particularly pleasing in the air,
"Come Unto Him All Ye That Labor."
The orchestra's gentle accompaniment pro
duced the impression of a sweet bird's
melodious singing on a quiet summer night
with solt zephyrs watting, carrying hopes
of peace and good will to all "who are
heavily laden." After her rendering of
the number the especially musical audience
was notably swayed.
Mr. DuflVs First Appearance.
The part in "Messiah" that to the singer
contains the most gratifying opportunities
is that of the basso. ' In that Mr. Carl
Dufft was heard for the first time last nizht.
He is a genuinely artistic oratorio singer
and proved himself worthy of the reputation
he has acquired in New York. With a voice
lull aud round, a pronounced sympathetic
ring and a thoronghly cleat enunciation he
captivated his auditors with his first rendi
tion and carried them with him the rest of
the evening. He is possessed of a com
manding presence and aided by an intelli
gent interpretation, he seems well adapted
tor choral purposes.
Mr. Albert Lester King received a hearty
welcome when he sani; the opening recita
tive of "The Messiah." The part allotted
to the tenor in this oratorio does not give
many chances for the display of his full
vocal abilities; enough, however, was heard
of Mr. Lester King to fully prove thatt
his voice is sweet and carefully trained, his
delivery graceful and refined and his whole
performance as musicianly as the work re
quires. A Pleasant Musical Surprise.
An agreeable surprite was manifest at
the hearing of Miss Olive FrcmstaJt. This
young lady's career lB-as vet very brief, but
it is nevertheless markedly successful.
She has a winning and sweet ap
pearance that almost prejudices one in her
favor before she sings. That is not to say,
however, that her success is due more to
her looks than her voice, but merely im
plies that it would almost be im
possible to think of her render
ing any notes that were not artistic
ally true or feelingly impressive As
is the case with the tenor, the contralto
range in "The Messiah" is very limited.
Miss Fremstadt's mellow and repriful
voice has an agreeable quality and telling
power; her style is finished, and
her whole delivery reflects the inner
feeling of the singer to such a degree that it
is sincerely to be hoped that Pittsburg will
soon have an opportunity to hear the young
lad v in something that will do her -greater
credit than "The Messiah."
Considering the perfection of the quar
tet, the success of the chorus and the merit
ot the orchestra, Mr. McCollum, the leader,
and everyone else concerned, should derive
great encouragement lrom last night's pro
duction. MUEDEEED FOB HER HONEY.

New York, Dec 30. Some time last
night thieves killed Mn, Annette Ahren in
her home. Her throat was cut from ear to
car with her own bread knife.
Mrs. Abern was a widow. She owned the
house in which she lived and another in
Brooklyn. It was her habit to collect the
rents ot both houses. The confusion in
which her room was found indicates that
robbery was the motive. The door to her
rooms had been broken in. Every place

TAKEN FOR A RUBE.
Marshal Dye, of Marietta, O., Outwits
Green Goods Men and Recovers S1,000
They Had Taken From a Farmer
Offered Two Other Similar Jobs.
Pabkeksbtoo, W. Va., Dec 30. Spe
cial X citizen ot this section -who was
bitten early in tbe month to the tune of
$1,000 by green goods operators in New
York, engaged the services of Marshal Dye,
ot Marietta, to help him recover his good
money. Dye lett home one day last week
without advertising his destination, and he
has just passed through this city on his
return trip with the $1,000 in his possession.
He placed himself in communication with
the green goods men, and about ten days
ago he met one of them by appointment at
Grafton. The Marshal had the makeup of
a country "Babe," and ifwas so artistioilly
done that he was never suspected of play
ing a part until be got where he could un
cover. He went lrom Grafton to New
York with the "dealer," whom he met at
the former plaoe, an ostensible deal having
been made wherebv Dye was to buy 1,000
worth ot the goods. From New York the
dealer took him to a place in Jersey, onlv a
short distance from the city, and made him
his guest at a fine .country place, where,
after the usual "jollying," two other men
were introduced as the real sellers of the
stuff.
Dye relates that they were elcgau t fel
lows', and they offered "him a great deal.
Showing him'an Immense roll ot what was
manifestlv genuine currency, they offered
to give him $28,000,of the same kind for
S1.0J0 in eond uionev. Dye had had a de
tective follow theiii to the place, aud had
arranged that if he was unable to handle
the game alone he would signal the detec
tive lor assistance, wnen tne aeai was
seemingly on the verge of consummation
within the house, Dye said."
'A thousand dollars is a lot of money.
I'd rather get it than give it. You took
$1,000 lrom a man at such a time and place
(naming the party for whom he was at
work), and no before I go you'll pay me
back that money or I'll blow the Lead off
your stool pigeon."
The gang ere surprised, but not scared,
and Dve had to stand them off with a pistol
while he called the detective to bis assist
ance, or, as he says, they wonld have killed
him. When the other officer came in the
fellows weakened and cheerfully turned
over the money demanded. The detective
from New York then wanted to make a case
against the men, but this was the one thing
the man who had sent Dye on the errand
wished to avoid. So the New York officer's
objections to compounding a felony had to
be overcome in the usual way, and alto
gether tbe trip was an expensive one But
the Marshal brought back a pretty fsir
share of his employer's $1,000, and he said
he was hardlv in the State betnre two other
men approached him to undertake the same
sort ot a job tor them.
FIGHT IN A COURTROOM.
Two Prominent Attorneys Pass the Lie
and Then Go at Each Other The
Judge Fines Doth or Them One of
the Lawyers Was a Counsel In the
Celebrated Sharon Case.
San Francisco, Dec 30. Special
Judge Hebhard's courtroom was the scene
of a disgraceful affray ,-day, when two
prominent attorneys, ex-Judge O. F. Evans
and Charles F. Hanlon, exchanged the lie
and indulged in a rongh-and-tumble fight
The Judge fined them ?o00 each, with five
days in jail, but remitted the imprisonment
penalty when they apologized.
The trouble grew out of the litigation
over the Donohue estate. Evans objected
to Hsnlon's bill of costs, but the latter de
clared that Evans had agreed to allow this
bill and pav a penalty of $500 his client
had incurred forVlisobeying a court order.
Evans flatly asserted that he had made no
such promise, whereupon Haulan shouted:
"You are a liar."
Evans, who is the larger man, immediate
ly struck out, but Hanlon dodged, and in a
moment the two men "mixed things," to
useaslueging term Neither got in any
'effective blows before they 'were separated.
The Judge then read them a lecture and
imposed fines and imprisonment, but he
had not the nerve to insist upon their re
moval to jail.
Evans, who is a Virginian, played a con
spicuous part in the Sharon case as one of
Senator's counsel. Hanlon is young, but
has a large practice, being counsel for the
rich Donohue estate and many large cor
porations. It was the liveliest fight ever
seen in a local courtroom since Sarah Al
tiiea insulted Justice Field and Judge
Terry came to her rescue to prevent her ar
rest. KILLED UNDER THE WATER.
Peculiar Fatal Accident to a Diver In the
North ISiver While Driving a Cartridce
Ho Explodes Another Ills Neck Broken
by the Lxploslon.
New York, Dec 30. ria?.
Adonirm II. Fairchiid, a diver of 30 years'
experience in many parts of the world, was
killed to-day, 35 feet below the surface of
the North river. The Dock Department has
been making ready at the loot of Fulton
street tor the coming of the In man u s,
which will begin to sail from there in the
latter part of February.
Fairchild, taking nith him a pail con
taining eight cartridges, descended to drive
them into the holes that were drilled for
them last week. After he had been gone a
moment or two another diver heard a slight
sound as of a stone dropping on the tar end
of the pier. He signaled to Fairchild, but
got no answer. He signaled again, and as
there as still no answer, lie ordered the
men to pull Fairchild up, but he was dead.
In a few minutes they brought up the pail
and wooden rammer. In the pail were four
of the six cartridges unexplodcd. It must
have been that Fairchild drove in one cart
ridge and exploded the other accidentally.
The rammer, driven back against his body,
struck the iron collar of his diving snit and
threw it against his chin so violently that
his neck wa broken.
The other divers were of the opinion that
the force ot the explosion must have bunt
the valves of his heart. They say that snch
things have happened tinder similar circum
stances. A SCHOOL FOB SHALL E0QUES.
Boys and Girls Learn to Steal in an Insti
tution In Paris.
London Dxilv.News.1
In Paris there still exist schools of crime
such as that conducted by Fagin, aud the
dummy figure with bells from the pockets
of which the young pupils have to steal
purses and handkerchiefs without making a
noise of ringing are still in use A young
pickpocket, who aroused suspicion because
he was spending mouey very freely, and
who was found to have onlv recently stolen
a purse containing C0f. from a lady in an
omnibus, has been interviewed on the sub
ject in the prison of La Petite ltoquettc.
This precions young rascal described how
his father had carefully taught him.to pick
ladies' pockets. "I only, pick ladies'
pockets," he said. "That is easier tban
picking men's. With gentlemen it is more
difficult to do the trick without their feel
ing your hand on them." His '"papa" and
he, 'be said, used to travel together in om
nibuses from the Palais Boyal to the Bas
tile. That was not so good a "pitch," he
exclaimed, as the omnibuses from Made
line to the Bastile, bnt these latter were
already worke i by "old Mother G.," who,
it seems, claimed, and successfully asserted,
exclusive privileges' with regard to the
portable property of passengers on that
route.
The interviewer, after leiving the lad,
found himself minus a handkerchief and a
halfpenny, which' he had purposely left in
his tail "pocket- as an experiment to see
whether he could' be relieved of them with

INITIATED IN A GRAVEYARD.
Ghastly Maneuvers Attendant Upon a Col
lege Society's Franks The Victim's
Nerves Subjected to a Severe Test The
Tonth Made to Dig In a Cemetery While
Blindfelded.
Boston, Dee 30. Special Very little
has been heard about the Harvard "Dickey"
Clnbintiiation since theexpose of some of the
cruelties imposed upon candidates for mem
bership. But they are still conduoted with
a view to putting the candidate's nerve to a
hard test. A few nights ago a candidate
was initiated in a Brookline graveyard. He
was first conducted to the graveyard by a
committee. He was blindfolded, gagged
and bound hand and foot, and had a halter
around his neck, the end of which was tied
to a tombstone. When the initiators ar
rived he was almost frozen.
The new-comers put their victim throngh
a course of ghastly maneuvers. After
making some bloodcurdling remarks about
the punishment that was sure to be in
flicted on any person who should betray the
secrets of the society, one fellow untied the
cord that bound the candidate, while the
other placed a spade in his hands and in a
sepulchral voice ordered him to dig. He
silently obeyed, and while he was thus en
gaged one of his companions took some ob
jects from a bag and put them in the
ground, whence the candidate picked them
up, being informed that they were portions
ot a dead body. Like a man in a trance he
performed the different tasks that were as
signed to him, and did not utter a word or
a murmur during the trying ordeaL
Having remained about an hour In the
graveyard, the students dragged their vic
tim to a carriage, were driven back to Bos
ton, and then the would-be D. IC . man,
still blindfolded and gagged, was placed on
the front platform of a Cambridge electric
car and conducted back to Cambridge

How the Sweet Essences Are Distilled In a
Golden line.
Blackwood's Magazine
We stopped before a hahn to look at a
distillery and rosefield, and were wel
comed by the proprietor, who was also
landlord of the inn. Seats were put for
us behind the brazier, where it was not a
little warm, and soon minature cups of
coffee were presented to us by his rosy
cheeked wife.
In lront of a long shed six large cal
drons stood over the brazier, and into
these vessels about 100 worth of roses
were put with warm water. The iron tubes
throngh which the vapor escapes passed
hrough a long tin receptacle shaped
like a trough, which was filled with cold
water, and below which large glass bottles
stood to receive the first distilifttion. These
distillations are necessay before the oil of
the rose appears.
We were shown a small bottle into which
the essences just distilled had been poured.
The color is a rich, deep gold, and the smell
is strong, subtle and penetrating, pleasant
lor the first instant, but soon producing
a sense ot giddiness aud Depression in
the head. It affects everything near it,
and the perfume clings tenaciously even in
open air.
The proprietors arc! secured from being
cheated, as the peasants cannot endure the
perfume they themselves manufacture, and
make no use of it whatever. It is sealed
up in leaden bottles and sent to the great
perfume emporiums In London and Paris,
and a thousand different seen trench have a
their essence a few drops of this rich, thick

Althonsh chronic catarrh in this climate
Is nearly always caused bv neglected colds,
occasionally the exciting cause is traced to
Irritating particles of dnst and exposure ta
foul air, as of coal mines, factories, otc.
This form of catarrh is dne to particles of
nne Mist being carried in the air, Inspired,
inhaled from the mote-laden atmosphere in
shops, mines, factories, etc., and to which
stonecutters, cntlers. coal miners, brass,
worters, nailers', sawmakers, eta, are lia
ble. This at times so afreets the system that the
patient, before he isanare of it, suffers from
almost total nervous prostration and debil
ity, dne to deploted and vitiated blood, as
well as the local trouble caused by tbe Irri
tating pattlcle3 of dust fiyina in the air, and
needs carefnl and general constitutional
treatment as well as treatment directed to
the local ailment.
