TIlE CULTIVATION OF JUTE.
Jute grows most luxuriantly on
moist alluvial soils, or any fertile lands
where corn and cotton will grow. It
should be the aim of the planter to
produce stalks about one inch in diam
eter at the butt, and as many as possi
ble on an acre, 12 to 15 feet high. Jute
will grow well in some rich soils, if
drilled, 1 1-2 to 2 inches in diameter;
but this is not as desirable here as in
India, as it is more profitable for the
Indian to remove the pith from a sin
gle stalk producing two ounces of fibre
than from a smaller one yielding but
oneounce. But themachine will strip
two stalks one inch each in diameter
as quniekly..as from one two inches,
producing a better quality of fibre.
All intelligent planters will know
best how to treat their own soil to ob
tain the largest yield. On a deep, rich,
moist soil jute may be sowe broadcast,
if sown early, and will produce from
3000 to 4000 pounds to the acre, while
less rich soils will be more likely to
produce a full crop if planted in drills
from a few inches to three feet apart,
according to the estimate of the plan
ter of the strength of the soil. The
Western grain drilling machine will
probably prove the most cconomical
implement for planting jute. In all
cases the ground should be well pre
pared before seeding, thoroughly and
deeply plowed, and harrowed in the
most complete manner.. The amount
of seed required for an acre will be con
trolled entirely by the method of plant
ing and strength of soil, ranging from
G to 12 pounds per acre. The seed may
be planted in iMarch or April to June,
according tolocality, making the plant
ing season last three months, thereby
extending the harvesting season three
Jute should be cut while in flower or
commencing to form seed, to produce
the best quality of fibre. The machine
may be placed in a sugar-house or cot
ton gin-house, and the stalks handed
to it like sugar cane to a sugar mill; but
it is believed that it will prove most
economical to place it with a portable
engine in the field, there removing the
pith and outer bark. The ribbons are
then placed in water in bundles to
water-rot, which will require about ten
days, when they are removed, washed,
dried and baled for market at a cost of
1 3-4 to 21 cents per pound, depending
upon the price and quality of labor,
rent of land and facilities for rotting.
In most cases the assistance ofa stream
or bayou, or natural pond, may le ob
tained for this purpose.
A pond containing I15 cubic yards
of water, say S0xs0x. feet, will be large
enough to contain the jute ribbons that
will make ten tons of fibre or ten days
machine work, ofa ton a day. At the
end of each day, a day's work of the
machine, a ton of fibre will be remov
ed from the vat ,or pond, leaving room
fora day's work of fresh ribbons.
Therefore all the time lost in rotting
jute is but ten or twelve days for the
season. The cost of building and
maintaining a pond of the size men
tioned for a period of five years or
more, should not cost to exceed one
twentieth of a pound of fibre, suppos
ing that about 100 tons a year are pro
pared in the pond.
It is not improbable that at no time
in the history of the world has so im
piortant an invention been brought out
under so favorable circumstances as the
jute machineof 1882. Eli Whitney in
vented the cotton gin in 1701, when
scarcely any cotton was growing, ex
cept for home consumption. Our most
valuable and important inventions
have greatly increased the demand for
the product for which the machine or
invention was produced. Mr. Smith's
machine makes its appearance when
3,000,000 of bales of jute are already
produced, and American soil, labor
and ingenuity can double and quadru
ple that amount in a few years if the
markets of the world call for it. And
there can be hardly any limit to cheap
jute manipulated in innumerable ways
by American skill and energy. Cot
ton was picked from the seed chiefly,
we believe, by women and children be
fore the cotton gin was discovered.
Jute is now in like manner, handled
by the lingers of East Indian laborers.
Even at the present low prices of jute
it is believed that by the use of the ma
chine it can be sent to market, and
sold at a profit of 100 per cent. And
dividing the labor now spent on over
1,000,000 bales of cotton annually be
tween jute and cotton, it would greatly
increase thie price of the latter product.
A COSTLY CELLAI.
Thie cellar under a block of apart
ment houses, now building on Sevnth
avenue near C(entral Park, resembles a
great quarry. In some parts of the
block the rock towered twenty-five feet
above the adjacentstreet level, necessi
tating an excavation thirty-six feet.
The grade of tile cross streets is such
that in the length of the building, i".
feet, there is a rise of fourteen feet in
Fifty-ninth street and nineteen feet in
Fifty.eighth street. Consequently, the
level of the parlor floor, which isseven
feet above grade at Seventh avenue,
will be twenty-one feet above grade at
tile eastern extremity of the building,
and in the four houses toward the end
will be the second story. The houses
are spoken of as separate, and they
practically are so, but in appearance
hey will all form one structure, arch
ed colonnades connecting and binding
The cellar starts four feet below the
grade at the eastern end, and is eigh
teen feet below grade at the western
that is, for a space -105x200 feet. Around
this is a vault under the sidewalk, fif
teen feet wide, at a uniform depth of
sixteen feet below grade, to afford per
fect drainage as well as to give space
for boilers and coal storage. The cen
tral tunnel, entered from the eastern
end, will have a depth of twelve feet,in
the clear below the courtyard, and its
floor at the entrance will be only six
feet below the grade of the cross streets
at that point. By this tunnel access
will be given to the servants' and
freight elevators. Messrs. 1 lubert &
I'irrson, the architects, the Sun says,
estimate approximately the total
amount of removed at -t5,125 cubic
yards, which, at 82.50 per cubic yard,
the ordinary price for such excavation,
would bring up to $112,800 the cost of
merely digging this big hole. The
foundation walls required to support
the ten story construction to be reared
upon them, the cementing, etc., will
increase the expense of this cellar by
about $.20,000, so that the total cost
up to the top of the cellar wall will be
not less than ~130,000.-NUiticiWic Ametr

"''(lad to see you," said Mace, when
he learned the reporter's business.
"Let me introduce you to Mr. Slade
of New Zealand. lie can outbox, out
wrestle, and ouijump any man in the
world, and he ain't 28 years old. At
any rate, I will bet money that he can
and make the match with one man,
best two events out of three."
Mr. Slade certainly looked fully able
to carry out Mace's prediction. Six
feet two inches and a hall in his bare
feet, with enormous shoulders, and a
depth of chest perfectly asfounding,
with arms like railroad ties, small
wrists, and large, apowerful hands with
enormous knuckles, his appearance
was one calculated to awe and astonish
a man of ordinary size. Jom Mace is
no boy in size, and possesses a wonder
ful development of neck, chest, and
shoulders, but beside Slade lie looked
quite small, and Patsy Hogan, who
is a light weight, appeared to be a
mere infant. Slade's legs are perfectly
formed, and his feet and ankles small.
Every move he made was graceful.
IIis carriage was dignified and manly,
and his face wore a rather grave,
though pleasant expression, reminding
one very much of the old English
champion, Tom Cribb.
"I have got a mnan here," said Mace
(pointing to Slado, who then left the
room), "who can and will light Sulli
van or any other man. Slade is a

''No," replied MIace, ,"there was

The present Whiskey Ring differs
materially in its organization from
that which flourished under ien.
;rant; but its purposes and aims are
essentially the same. John Sherman
stands forward in the Senate as the
pecul~tr champion of this Ring, his
brother-in-law being one of its princi
pal attorneys, and his friends in Cincin
nati being among the large holders of
The original law allowed whiskey to
be bonded for a single year before pay
ment of the tax. This act was simple
and effective in Its operation, and there
was no large accumulation under it.
The manufacturers of whiskey them
selves induced Congress to extend the
time of warehousing to three years, by
the act of March 2S, 1878. They knew
the amount of annual consumption to
be about fifteen millions of gallons, but
it was wholly disregarded after this
stimulating legislation. Bourbon and
rye whiskeys derive their value from
age, and three years in wood enhance
it very considerably.
After the passage of this law the
manufacturers hastened to increase the
production, and the consequence is, as
has-been often illustrated by high pro
tective duties on imports, the business
has been overdone. The stock of
whiskey now on hand represents near
ly six years of average consumption,
and between seventy-five and eighty
millions of dollars in taves due to the
Let it be borne in mind that the
Government has practically given
these manufacturers the privilege of
warehousing without interest for three
years, which amounts to bestowing
upon them the immense sum of money
which under the former law of one
year of bending they would have been
obliged to pay.
The banks of Cincinnati, of Louis
ville, and of other cities have aided in
bringing about the present condition of
the whiskey interest by loaning money
at heavy rates on the certificates of the
bonded warehouses. Now, when the
holders of these great stocks cannot
sell them, because the supply is vastly
in excess of the demand, the manufac
turers or owners of the whiskey, and
the banks that speculated in the certifl
cates, find themselves driven into a
corner, and not a few are confronted
In this dilemma, brought about by
their own agency, because they got the
period of bonding extended from one
to three years, they appeal to Congress
for relief, just as other monopolists are
doing under the tariff. They believe
in a paternal governmenf, which will
foot the bills of its children.
A bill was rushed through the
I ouse at the last session of Congress to
give the whiskey men five years of ad
litioual time for bonding. It was
blocked in the Senate. They virtually
wanted the Treasury to loan them the
taxes for half a decade, aggregating
several hundred millions of dollars, in
addition to the favors already received
I'uolic opinion condemned that job,
and it was abandoned by necessity.
Now 3ir. Sherman brings in a bill to
give two years more of free warehous
ing, and acompanllies it with a piteous
appeal that if this relief be not grant
ed, there will be widespread ruin
among the holders of ths whiskey, that
is to say, the speculators that bonded
it for a rise.
An amendment proposing five per
cent. interest on the extension was
voted down. Another amendment
proposing to return to the one-year sys
tem after July, 1883, which gave fair
notice to holders, was also voted down,
John Sherman pretending to be in
favor of it on another bill, but not on
the pending one.
These and other votes prove that the
Whiskey lunig has been re-enforced
since the last session, and that some of
the Senators, who profess to be very
anxious-for amendments, are wearing
masks to deceive their people at home.
Tihe whiskey meni of Minnesota have
coiimpelli'l Mr. Windom to come to

At the (eld'l of thoe proposed two
years, this interest will again knock at
the doors of Congress for more logisla

.A M ITEitIOUS COIItES1'ONIDENT.
Editors of newspapers in large cities
and populous towns are far from being
strangers to the voluntary correspon
dents who ovewhelm with diffuse
misives on all conceivable subjects.
Of the thousands of such letters received
by editors, only a very few ever see
the light of typo-a discouraging cir
cumstance that does not In the least
dampen the ardor of the men and
women who find phleasure in freeing
their minds in a letter to the editor.
When one of these epistles is printed,
the author thereof grows excited with
inexpressible delight; he or she sincere
ly believes that one letter is about all
that the copy of the paper contains
worth reading; that the stray contribu
tion is calculated to work immeasura
ble reforms, probably revolutionize the
existing order of things entirely. For
days the happy writer wonders why
the editor does not write to him for 4
more letters, or a leading article.
Successful correspondents, with an
expanded opinion of themselves, in
variably jump to the conclusion that
the editor fears superior abilities, there
fore ignores the very existence of the
letter-writer whoso production hle has
printed; for the correspondent knows
in his heart that he is fir better quali
fied to edit any paper in tie country
than any editor living.
No doubt there are voluntary corres
pondents of newspapers who write to
particular journals for the more pleas
ure of writing. That such must be the
case is proven by the experienceo of the
Mobile (Ala.) Register. Receiving at
stated intervals letters from ia corres
pondent, missives entirely unsuited to
its columns, the editor, imllessed by
the persistency of the writer, not by i
the matter or diction of the lucuibra
tions, commenced the work of filing
away the writings, and faithfully con
tinued the task for tno consecutive
years. In that long period letters t
came regularly, once in every two
weeks, from an unknown correspondent
in New Ifave, Conn. Many of the
communications are quite lengthy, c
covering three and for pages of fools- I
cap. In every instance the postage
was properly prepaid by one, two, and
three stamps. Not a line fromt the pen
of the diligent correspondent ever ap.
peared in the ltegister, nor is over I
likely to. ''.amcs'" was the signature
appended to the first communication; a
all'tho subsequent ones were sigted t
with the intials "A. II. .1."
Who the writer is, neither the pub- I
lishers nor editor of the mobile Register I
have the remotest idea. Nor can they
or any one else imagine what prompts I
the party to write so punctually. It
may be for the mere pleasure of spread
ing individual views on paper and
posting them off to a ntewspapler ollice.
Each letter is a dissertation oni some
abstruse point of constitutional law,
exceedingly verbose in style and incon
sequential in argutment. It may be
that the writer is the inm:ate of a luna
ticasylum, who is kindly permitted
to pass away his time in ilt iolllcentl
Newspapers in Ithe large Northern
cities have, at odd times, beeln mliadCe
the recipients of letters frolll parties of
leisure who who were never without
a grievance, but who surroudered to
adverse fate and the calpacious maw of
the waste-basket inside of It year.
Occasionally persistent correspondent
of strc.ng wills invade the editorial I
rooms in person, and, inl no gentle
tones, demand to know why their com- I
munications have not appeared,.tsit a
rule coupling their request for instantl
information with the amiable observa
tion lthar their letters were far superior
in thought and language to anything
that was pi nted inll the columns closed
to him. Ilditors being anmong the
most amiable persons In thie world,
never resent impertinettces Iof that
kind. They merely Itutter ''nit
available, and when the irate corres
pondent threatens to take it to t ng rivatl
paper, the editor, smiling cheerfutlly,
excilaims gaily. "The'li' very thing to
do," for lhe fori.scs what hICs cotlrattl(,
of thie opposition shlet will haveo to

IJANCINU EAST AND WEST.
There is a very marked difference be
tween the style of dancing used in
Eastern and Western society. New
York, WVashington, Boston and the
beautiful ladies of Philadelphia recog
nize no round dance but the waltz,
show polka and redowa. In square
dances the minuet, plain and waltz
quadrille and the Saratoga lancers are
considered in good tasts. In the latter
the couples form in parallel lines, all
dancing together, and the figures are
not more complicated than those of the
Inucers. The german is reserved for
private assemblies, and the "down
easters" would be horrified to find
themselves doing the rosette, or the
double chain in a promiscuous comn
pany. The La Russo, which is one of
this year's dances, does not find'"much
eivor in the East. It is a combination
of the galop and mazurka, and is
danced tosix-eight time.
Out West the young folks are so full
of animal spirits and agility that walt

ed intolerably stupRil. Every couple,
as though electrified the moment a
galop is preluded, gives one bound and
away th ey all go in dire confusion,
four long steps, a dizzy whirl, four
more in an opposite direction, and re

crushing shirt bosoms and bouquets,

"The Newport," received little or no
popularity in the East, where all were
prudently forbidden in the best society
and the standard dancing academies.

Sausage-A new way, to mnany cooks,
to prepare sausages for the table is to
bake them. 1)o not make an objection
to this way of cooking theim until you
have tried it onc'e, and then I predict
that you will not think ofso doing.
Put theli in a baking-tin, turning
them wheln necessary, just if you were
frying them. Brown them well; they
are less greasy than if fried, and are
altogether more daliheate in every way.
