Mr. lirierley was also alllieted with ncn

lie' ease w as severe, it (lid not go such ter

MORE ABOUT THE OYSTER.
From the Shell to the Can
—Oyster Shucking.
Washing, Weighing, Canning,
Labeling, etc. Gilmpses
the Process of
Preparation.
It was not our intention to say innie
about t 'no ovHter business of l'al ti more
than what was said in our lust article
but having accept?ii the invitation of a I
t'rienil to nccompany him on a visit to
"nee how they pack oysters," I have
concluded to mid a few words to what
has already been said in a brief descrip
tion of what we sHw.
Those w hu are fond of "cove oysters"
the name of I.. McMiirrny &. Co., will
not be unfamiliar as the name of their
favorite brand. Through his larpe es
talilishuieiit on Cross street, we had the
cood fortune to be conducted by his
obliging nephew, Mr. Woten, whose
kindness and courtesy we here ac
knowledge. 1'a. king houses are located, with a
view t business, and not esthetics.
They are usually at the water's edee,
with a ionir shed projecting out over the
water so that boats may come alongside
to unload. This projection is the
"hhuckers" shed and the interior is not
particularly invitinj; as a work of art or
even dining parlor. As I have had oc
casion to remark before, oysters, as they
come to the market in the hold of a
dredge, are not very inviting to epicures,
either as to looks or odor, and the shuck
ing room presents both of these defects
in a strong light. At the end of this
room farthest from the shore, ara two
large tanks, one on each side, filled with
boiling water, from which, clouds of
steam are continually rising, lieside
these tanks are cianes which carry,
through t lie large doors that open on
each side, two iron boxes, each holding
a bushel, from the oyster uoat, fastened
alongside the house, the oysters to the
water tank.
I'.efore going any farther on a tour
of inspection, it is necessary to sample
the oysters and prepare yourself thor
oughly to appreciate what is to follow.
So our conductor kindly ordered some
raw oysters and also some steamed ones
and a "shucker" to shuck them for us.
If one has never lnu-ktd 0'--ti t. I believe
our Ohio friends say husked this latter I
addition should not be omitted or the!
proper frame of mind may not be attain- j
ed. The captain of tiie "pungy" from j
which ovstcrs were being unloaded,
placed his cabin at our disposal and told
us to enjoy ourselves. With a peck of
raw and a bushel of stewed oysters at
your disposal, this is not a hard thing to
do, especially if about meal time. I
once thought I did not like oysters but
I think it would take a long time and
much logic to convince the oyster shuck
erthatldo not care for them now.
We did not eat all at our disposal but
we ate some.
We had oysters on the half shell until
we had enoug) . They were delicious.
When you are in Baltimore try the ex
periment. To return to my subject, the oysters
are taken from the hold of the boat in
the boxes and placed in the water tanks
where they are held until they begin to
open when they are taken out and taken
to the shockers.
The shuckers room is furnished with
a kind of counter along each side of the
room at which the shuckers stand and
work, r.ack of them is thetramwayby
which the oysters are conveyed from the
boiling tanks. Between the counters is
a wide cart-way for the carts in which
the shell, that are thrown over the
counters bv the shuckers, are hauled
away.
MeMurrav it Co., employ about two
hundred shuckers, men, women, boys
and girls. They presented rather a mot
ley appearance, Poles, Germans, Bohe
mians, Knglish, Americans, Negroes of
various shades, string along side by side
down each side of the room. They re
ceive six and one-fourth cent a "pot,"
about a gallon, and make from seventy
live cents to a dollar and a quarter per
day. They carry their -'pot" to the
packing room and pass it in through a
"pigeon hole" and receive in return
another "pot" and a check for six and a
fourth cents.
The oystis are now placed in a wire
biioket and placed in a tank of pure
water and washed and then allowed to
drain a few minutes after which they
are placed in cans and weighed eight
ounces to the eta. The cans are then
filled with the liquor, after which they
are ready for sealing. Most packing
houses open the oysters by means of
steam alone, and fill the can with salt
water, but McMnrray it Co., use boiling
water to open the oysters and liquor to
(ill the cans a much superior process.
After the cans are filled a girl places
the lid and a small piece of solder on
the can, and the cans are tarried to the
"sealer,' who, with a soldering-iron,
peculiarly adopted to the purpose, quick
ly seals them. The cans are now placed
in iron baskets, about five feet across
and deep enough for one can, and after
about eight cans have been filled, these
are placed in the "process kettle," a
large steam tight arrangement, and boil
ed for a time, after which they arc
ready to be labeled and put on the
market.
The landing is done by girls. On
girl can label live thousand cans per day,
if required.
McMnrray A Co., make their own
cans. In the oyster sasou thty employ
about four hundred hands and in the
peach season about one thousand at Bal
timore. They put up thirty-five hun
dred bushels of ovsteis per Hay and in
the peach season two. to three thousand
boxes. They also can peaa, pineapples,
pears, beans etc., etc.
At Frederick, Md., they have a corn
rnniiiinf ft;iUirihiiiptit wliere tliev put
up from one hundred to ono hundipd
and lifty thousand cans per day. They
cultivate uliout threo llniusand Hi res o(
wni for lanniiiti alone. ThiH hchkob
they w ill put up from lour to live mil
lion cans of corn.
Maryland peaches lead the world, not
excepting the California pea 'lies, which
are insipid compared with them. In
apricots, however, California excelH.
Ielawaie peaches usually go on the
market in their natural state.

is

ir
provided with thcHe articles. In the
meantime they were to provide them
selves w ith those "traps aud accoutre
ni 'iits," on the sly, so ns not to awakrn
the slightest suspicion. When these
were provided they were to set n day
for their departure.
Tuey then separated and at the earli
est opportunity informed their parents
that they were sorely in need of a pair of
shoes and the above mentioned "trouser
loons." The sore need was not so ap
parent to the old folks as to the hoys,
but after not a little coaxing and some
very adroit argument, it was demon
strated apparently to the satisfaction of
the parents and certainly to the entire
satisfaction of the boys and these ar
ticles were accordingly purchased.
They had, aB they thought, equipped
themselves pretty well by this time nnd
so the next step was to set the day. It
was unanimously decided to start on the
morning of March 11th, and in order
that they might get a good early Btart, it
was thought best to convey the greater
part of the aforesaid "traps and ac
coutrements," to a piece of tiuiber-l.nd
a short distance out of town, and there
conceal them in a brush-pile, In ad
dition to this, Alec bridled his pony and
took her out and tied her in 'tin satno
piece of timber, that she might be at
hand in the morning when they were
ready to Btrap upon her back their
Camping utensils, ammunition, etc; Jill
of which are included in the terms,
"traps and accoutrements." A list of
these might not be uninteresting nnd
perhaps not inappropriate here. I will
lirst inuumerate those of a war-like na
ture: two breech-loading shot-gtini, and
two navy revolvers, one of which shot a
No. 38 cartridge, long or short, the other
a No. !12. There was, perhaps, a bowie
knife or two but I am not positive as to
that. As, to ammunition, they had 000
cartridges, besides powder and shot in
abundance.
Among their other necessary articles,
was a blanket for their protection at
night, a coll'ee pot and frying pan, to
gether with tin cups, pans and various
other articles, too nuraerons to mention.
Alee even remembered to put in three
loaves of bread, a cup of jelley and a
box of pepper, but when on the way it
was soon discovered that no salt had
been provided. It would not be amiss
to say that they were a fresh set of boys,
until they stopped at a farm lioue and
made a raise of some salt.
The night of the 10th of March came
at last, as all nights do, but it wag a
wakeful night to, at least, two boys in
Greenfield, as they felt it was their last I
night there for many years. After lay- j
ing awake, till far into the night, think- j
ing of that glorious iuture just uetore
them, Morpheus touched thrm with his
magic wand and they fell asleep to
dream about that "land flowing with
milk and honey" which they would
shortly enter. The next morning, they
were up with the lark, and could hardly
wuit till breakfast was ready. Bob's
mother must have thought hu was tak
ing a good start to make a distinguished
editor, by his eagerness to get oil" to
school that morning. Alec's step-father
no doubt rejoiced to see that hisstop-son
was learning the good habit of early
rising, and especially this morning, as
he wanted him in the store that fore
noon. The boys did not geem to relish
breakfast, notwithstanding the toast
was the best, the biscuits the whitest
and the steak the tenderest. Every boy
who reads this can tell what wag the
matter. There was nothing wrong with
the breakfast, but it wis all wrong with
the boys. They felt guilty. That little
monitor way down in their hearts, call
ed the conscience, was whispering to
them and saying : "Dun't tip thai, don't do
tlntl, iou know vrry urll ioit thouhht't."
Ah ! boys, how much less trouble there
would be in this world if every body
hail obeyed that little monitor, called
conscience. Our penitentiaries and
jails would not be crowded, our lawyers
and judges would not be kept so busy
and saloon keepers would be compelled
to engage in some other business if
conscience was always obeyed. After
the boys had gulped their breakfast
down, the best they could, they arose
from the table ; as Alec's Hep-father
told him he wanted him to help in the
store that morning, Alec muttered some
thing about his pony had to be fed and
watered. As badly as this was needed,
it was only a few minutes, till he bad
slyly taken his gun down from the rack,
slipped out the back way and by dodg
ing tli rough alleys, was soon on the out
skirts of the town. Here he was joined
by Hob, with his gun, who also had an
ink-stand protruning from one pocket
and a copy-book from the other. The
boys were jubilant to think their scheme
had worked so nicely, and they kept up
a lively conversat on as they walked
briskly on toward the wood, where they
nad leit tlie pony and their tilings
jusi ueiore reaching the place ot ren
dezvous in the forest they came suddenly
upon uus Caxton, w ho had come out
there to shoot at a mark with his rifle.
Seeing the boys coming cautiously up.
as though they would be glad to pass by
unperceived, he turne.l away from the
mark, upon which he was about to take
a bead, and said : "Hello, kids, which
way?" Alec thought it might be best
to give him an evasive answer, and so
he replied, "Why, we are going out for
a hunt, to be sine, K.ud..p, where are
your lointinkers." "Cirandpap" did not
use his "tomtinkers" for nothing and as
lie saw the big heavy blanket thev had
along, he knew that he had not heard
the straight of the matter, aud so lie
plainly teld them that they could not
"pull the wool over his eyes" that way
and that he knew there was something
in the wind. The boys, seeing that they
could not "pull the wool over his eyes
that way and that he knew theie
was something in tlie wind, owned
that they were "Arkansaw travelers,"
or at least would be, us Boon as
they could get inutile of that Mate.
OtiH, finning iLhI tliey were running oil",
wan Btrin k with tlie iilea that it wim
jimt what he would like to do aud ac
cordingly auked pcruiiHMon to accom
pany liiein. Neither of the ho) 8 had
thought of taking in another partner,
hut they concluded to let Otis join them
a he wan a good fellow and they
thought hy a few Ichhoiih, he would Boon
he dualli on "haia and Injuns." Ho all
three trudged merrily on toward the
wood.
