THE ENTERPRISE, W EDNKSDAY, DECEMBER.
USEFUL AFTER DEATH.
What la Done wlia tha Bodloe of
Iho Pott-Mortm History of an Old Nag
IU Bono Converted Into Fertilisers,
It Hide Into Hae-1111 Conn
' ' and Iti Hood Into Ola.
It was a very melancholy-looking
horse, with a consumptive aspect pre
sumably engondored by long periods of
soml-Ebuvatlon, and when It foil dead
suddenly In the shafts of an ash wagon
apposite the Patent Offloe early yester
day morning, says the Washington Star,
the colored man who drove the oart did
not evince any marked surprise. A po
liceman who was passing stopped for a
moment to Inspect the oorpse and then
went into a shop on the corner to ring
up a telephone. Ton minutes flew by
and a man with a buslqess-llke air and
a largo wart on his nose made his way
through the little crowd that surround
ed the dead animal. The ash man he
addressed briefly In a whisper and pres
ently handed him five silver dollars.
After eyolng the money for a few sooonds
with tho air of one consoled for a mis
fortune the ash man put It In his pocket
and walked off, probably to borrow an
other horse for the purpose of dragging
his wagon home. As the crowd broke
up a philonthroplo pedestrian remarked,
with a sigh, to the person with a wart
on his nose that the poor beast was to
be congratulated upon having finished
his career of usefulness in this world.
The man with the wart grinned, and re
plied that the unfortunate creature's
usefulness, far from being finished, had
The phllanthroplo citizen did not un- i
dtrstand the meaning of this response,
but he Would have comprehended it bet- ,
tor if be bad waited a minute or so
more, at the end of which a heavy dray
was driven up alongside the pavement
and two men with an Inclined plane of
boards and rope tackle pulled the dead
horse upon the vehicle and drovo away
with It. The bystanders noticed that
4ho dray was marked In big letters with
the name of such-and-such a Arm, "man
ufacturers of superior fertilizers. "
.'' This, then,' was to be the destiny of
4 the deceased quadruped. Unlike the
egg that chirps at breakfast, it had not
, survived the period of its usefulness. It
; would ' live again In the fruits and
' flowers and waving grain, to' which it
might contribute the eloments ' cf
' After awhile the dray came to a stop
- ia front of an ugly-looking building on
the Potomac bank at the other end of
Georgetown. The men did not hold
their noses, but that was because they
. were used to the very unpleasant smells
which thicken the atmosphere of the lo-
. t allty. The carcass was unloaded, and,
having been conveyed into the building,
. was hoisted to the second floor. There
' an export operator set to work upon it
with a keen knife and quickly removed
the entire skin, the portion covering
the head and tall inoluded. The
flayed animal was then out up into
six parts, which were thrown into a
big iron kettle with a steam Jacket
and boiled four hours. At the end
of this time the big bones, loosened
from the flesh by oooking, were sep
arated front the mass of meat with rakes
for subsequent grinding up into bone
fertilizer, which Is very expensive, but
contains elements that restore the
.nutritive power to the soli in a wonder
ful manner. For whereas fertilizers
made of flosh produce a good effect
' that is merely temporary, the ground
bona supplies the appetite of the hungry
loam in a way that really lasts.
Nitrogen, carbon and lime, which it so
largely contains, are marvelous growth
But, as was about to be said, the flesh
and little bones, after the big bones bad
been taken out, were put under a power
full press, big enough to aooommodate
half a ton, and squeezed until nearly
every partlole of water and grease bas
been forced out of the tissue. Then
the mass was placed in a steam drier
' with two Jackets, between which steam
was continually flowing around, and
after awhile it came out dry as a chip.
Jlot a bit of grease or moisture, la
which the elements of decomposition
Sare propagated, remained, and tha
residue, after being ground np line in a
ort of mill, resembled Lone Jack tobao
o more than any thing else. It had no
offensive smell, and the reporter was in
formed that it would last indefinitely
without exhibiting a sign of decay or
change. In this form, put ap in bags, it
was ready for the farmer an excellent
fertilizer, though by no means equal to
ground bone. It is much ohesper, how
ever. And now, presumably, yon are under
the impression that yon know all about
the post-mortem history of a horse. By
o means. You bsve not yet been told
that his skin goes to Philadelphia or
View York and is made into base-ball
rovers. Nothing so tough as horse-hide,
and, therefore, so well adapted to that
jiurpoee, has yet been discovered. The
lair of the mane and tall is the best pos
sible material for a curled -hair mat
tress. The hoofs are ground up into the
finest gardeners' fertilizer known, and.
the most oostly of all fertilizers, owing
to the difficulty of grinding them. The
result Is called "hoof meal," and its
value from the gardener's point of view
la largely owing to the presence in it of
a great percentage of ammonia. Very
likely, however, the hoofs may be util
ised in the manufacture of an excellent
quality of glue, or it may be that tha
chemist will adapt them to the various
set of his own, among others to tha
Making of that exquisite color of Per
sian blue. Besides, tha hair may be
aed for haircloth and fish-lines, and
the bones for animal oharooal and but
tons. "SrhUa of a Oemlaa.
