THE MAGIC CHANGE EFFECTED BY A
YANKEE'S PATENT SAUCE.
The Hcriins Tasto Eradicated, IJcfcold a
rrcncii S.irdine ! A Herring Tibliery.
Dexterity of Uojs and Girla at "Woilc.
"Nine-tenths of our sardines como from
Maine,"' said a -wholesale Now York grocer.
''There are in Eastport alone over twenty
places where they manufacture sardines, and
there are a dozen others at Jonesport, Luloc
and other towns. The business began, in 1S7G,
and was started by some New Yorkers w ho
went to Kastpoi t and at first did quite a busi
ness in packing small herring in peculiar-looking
little wooden kegs m a pickle of spices.
Thesa herring were placed on the market a3
''Russian herring," and I can remember when
this cheap and fraudulent fish was on
the bills of faro of tho swell restaurants
of New York as tho highest priced
relish they served. Theso enterprising New
Yorkers made money fast in their Maine ven
ture, but they belie ed there was more still
in modeling tho herring upon French sar
dines, although some shrewd Yankees had
experimented extensively, and spent much
money in trying to mako tho venture prac
tical eomo j ears before. It had been found
easy to cook tho little fiah, pack them in olivo
oil in imitation sardine cans, and ghothem
the apjxMrance of genuine imported sardines.
But when they came to be eaten tho fraud
was jkilpable. Tho rich, spicy flavor of tho
French sardine was not there, but only tho
unmistakable tasto of the nativo herring.
Tho Yankees could not discover nny mca:i3
by w Inch the herring tasto could Ikj eradi
cated, and the sardino business was pro
nounced a failure; but our smart New
Yorker-, after a few experiment;, hit upon a
mixture ot oils and spices for a packing
auc" which mado a sardine of a hen ing in a
twinkling, and a gigantic industry has
jpnmg from the simple discovery.

"A he ig fiihi :3 is a simple thing. .'Small
tree? or Ik tn.li aio thrust into the candy
bottom of the sea, arranged i:i n. lmo i mining
cut probably 100 feet or mere, and then
caning Lack to tho thoro again. This is
tailed a trap, and inside of it a Lugo net is
fft. "When tlir tale i going out tho net is
raked, :"'d the fish that como up with it are
taken out with coop nets. Sometimes this
cat a v. ill be so largo that the weight of the
fi h will break the bottom out of the big net,
and the great heap of fLh will neaily all
escape. Then, again, the fishermen are able
to cairy m a lnisIW ljag all the herring that
are caught m a haul, llcrrmg, like mack
erel, w il follow a light on tho water, and
son.o fishermen taho advantage of this to fish
for tin min a jieculiar .ay. Tv.o or thieo
ILIi'iincn go in a Loat. 'Ihcy aro provided
with t'urht"? mado of cotton batting, satu
rated with keiosene. Dark nights aro
choc n, tuid the boats are rowed along tho
shores, w ith a torch m the bow of each boat.
ItLsi-oon known when a school of herring i3
reached, for the fish dart frantically after the
wake of light made by the torch, and mako
the w ait r s cthe and boil in their n&sh. Tho
lisheimin hae i-hort poles, on one -d of
which is a small scoop net. 'J hey dip the
herring out of the water w ith. these as fast as
the n t can be handled, and to intent aro the
fish on the bght that the net does not distui b
them in the least. In this way boat load
after boat load of future sardines aro cap
tured in a d.ort tune.
"'lb" way these herring are. handled at tho
faclonrisasight well woith going all tho
way to 5Iane to see. Aft r being captured
the fish aro Liken immediately to the fac
torics They arc laid m heaps on long tables.
I hat e h' ard somo of the native fishermen

and girio who woik in these sarthno factories
clean these hei ring they v. ould never men

cleaned as scon as the' como in. I stood
and watched a 7-j ear-old gnl go through tho
operation and timed her. She beheaded and
gutted fcevonly-iivc herring every miuuto for
ten minute without a miss or a halt, and
thej' told me that there weie hundreds more
that could do the same thing and keep it up
all day. The dexterity is simply man ellous.
The head of tho fish is cut off and tho entrails
are 1 1 mo ed w ith one stroke of the knife, but
how it is done I am not able to say. Each
fish cleaner has a box at his feet which hold';
a bushel, and a constant stream of fish is fall
ing from Ills hands into that box. Every
time it is idled tho boy or giiJ has earned ten
A PATEXTED SAUCE.
'The herring arc thoroughly washed after
being t loaned and aro then placed in pickle
for an hour. Taken from the pickle, they :iro
Liid on traj -. and placed in a drying room
heated to a high temperature by steam.
"When drv the fish me boiled in large shallow
pans filled w ith oil, the fish being thoroughly
cooked m the oil. Gnls and women then
pack the hen ing in the boxes iu which they
arc i laced in the market. Tho sauce discov
ered l the enterprising New Yoiker, which
is a jutrnted articl", is poured into tho bores,
which ai ' handed over to men who solder on
the co t rs. To i emo e t ho air w Inch is sealed
in Willi Ih ' llsh, and which must be taken out
to insure the prcsenat.on of the sardines, tho
boOi aie placed m a Link of lwilmg walci

for these Yankee sardines. Some idea of the
magi'itude ot tho Iui-Jiks? may lie obtain!
