This work is required in the prepara

kiud--we nmein Orniental pea:'rls, which,

As for the shape, every one knows how
rare it is to) tind a pteari without dlefect,
aid def.ects no~t in miater.al but in form,
and stil! more in color. A single exarm

to find mi:mfv p'.tris almost alike in

ing the common, and others the finer,
pearls.
We shall only ocupy ourselves with
the work of the latter, which, we re
peat, mrely differs from that of the
other from it._, greater finish.
Each workwoman has before her a
series of small compartments, contain
ing altogether several thousand pearls,
arranged so that each of them should
present the side having the orifice
pierced by the blower
Before introducing the coloring sub
stance, which would be too easily %e
tached from the glass if it were not by
sonic means more firmly fixed, every
pearl ha:s to receive inside a very light
coating of a glue which is p'erfectly
colorless. being made from parchment.
This layer being equally spread over the
interior of every pearl, the workwoman
takes advantage of the moment when
the glue is still damp and begins the
work of coloring, properly so called.
After having taken up the thin and
hollow tube, and soaking it in the bleak
paste, the workwoman introdnces a
certain quantity into each of the pearls
by her breath; and would you know
how many she must do in a (fay to en
able her to earn the modest sum of
from 2s 7d to 3s 4(1? Forty thousand!
For every thousand glued and filled
with the paste is only paid at the rate of
about one penny.
Colored beads are done in exactly the
same way; but, instead of the bleak
paste, a paste of the color desired is
lown into them.
Mountaineer Tront.
Not long since I followed one of these
dashing trout-streams from the valley
up the mountain.
Nature seemed to have done her best
to protect the little fishes that lived in
the dark deep pools and eddies. The
higher I climbed up the mountain, the
more fish I found; the stream became a
succession of falls, some of which were
three feet or more in height-the brook
in its track forming steps down the
mountain-and I began to wonder how
the fish came to be up there.
In the village. I chanced to mention
the subject to a friend who owned a mill
on the same stream; and he told me
that the fishes' ascent was a puzzle to
him. until one day his bov cailed him
out to the dam, ivhere the riddle was
solved. The dam was nearly four feet
high, and to relieve the stream, several
auger-holos had been bored in it, allow
ing a small stream of water to jet forci
bly out and go splashing down into the
clear pool below. As my friend ap
proached the spot, and l6oked through
the bushes, several large-sized trout were
moving about under the mimic fall,
evidently in great excitement, and dart
ing into it as if cnjoying the splash and
roar of the water.
Suddenly. one of the fish made a quick
rush that sent it up the falling stream.
so that it almost gained the top; but by
an unlucky turn it was caught and
thrown back into the pool, where it
darted away. evidently much startled.
Soon another made'the attempt, dart
ing at it like the first. and then rapidly
swimming up the fall, but only to meet
the fate of its predecessor. This was
tried a number of times, until finally, a
trout larger than the others made a
dash, mounted the stream, and entered
the round hole. The observers were al
most ready tn clap their hands, but it
was not successful yet. As the water
stopped flowing for a moment, they saw
that though the athletic trout had sur
mounted the fall, the hole was too small
for it to pass through, and there the
poor fish was lodged. The lookers-n
hastened to relieve it, and found that
its side or pectoral fins were caught in
the wood, but by pushing the fish ahead,
which you may be sure they did, they
liberated it, and it darted away inte the
upper pond.
Here, then, was the epaain h
trout climbed the mountain by swim
ming up thie falls, darting up the foam
ing masses, and adopting every expedi
ent to accomplish their journey. For
these fish deposit their eggs high up
stream, so that the young fry, when
hatched, may niot be disturbed by, pred
atory fish and other foes living in the
lower waters.-C. F . Holdct, in St.
Kicholas.
A Born Drummer.
"Do you think you are fitted to be
come a canvasser,'Walter?"
"I do."
"Well, suppose you were calling on a
customer, should you consider it a hint
to leave if he ordered you to clear out of
the room?"
"I should consider that an invitation
to remain.'
"Suppose he kicked you down-stairs?"
"I should regard that as a pleasant
introduction."
"WhaLt should you regard as a hint to
leave?"
"I will tell you from my own exper
ience. Las't ~winter, wishing to study
Greek. and having no money. I cast to
remain at the Presbyterian hospital as
an invalid. As ill-luck would have it I
grew so fat in a fortnight that, groan as~
loud as I would, they told mc to leave.
1 only clung the closer to my berth.
The good doctors then kicked me out of
the door, but I elimbed back though the*
window. At length they told me that,
all the b 'ds were taken, and that I must
sleep in the dlisrectmng-room. I slept
like a top for a week. But one day a
drunken student came into the room
brandishing a huge knife, and cried
out: --Where's that new subject?" I
lay still till he had thrust his knife two
or three inches into my side. Then,
fearing that all my members would se
cede unless 1 did something desperate, I
cried out 'I take the hint,' and sk-ipped."
A correspondent writes: I noticed in
the Evening Pbst of Nov. 2 a specimen
of German translation which brought to
my mind a sentence I took from an old
German grammar some time ago, which
perhaps may be new to you: "A blind
become hen, who to the scratching ao
customed was, after that she blind be
came ceased not to scratch. Of what
to the poor fool availed it? Another
seeing hen, who her tender feet wished
to spare, this observing, yielded not
from her side; and ias often as the blind
become hen a grain upseratched had,
ate it the seeing one away."-5. 1.

Man for Ma.ster.
A good story is told about town at this
moment. says'a Pittsburg .Dispatch cor
respondent There is a great demand
for persons connected with the foreign
legation. They are invited everywhere.
Young attaches who could not get in
side of a fashionable door in London.
Paris, Berlin, or the city from whence
they came, are here lionized to a degree
that makes their heads swim. They are
naturally delighted with America, and
float along on the stuface of the fashion
able current of Washington as big as
Newtown pippins. Soim,. of these fel
lows actually live on their invitations to
dinner, only paying for the breakfast at
some cafe. Well, the story goes that
one of them was asked to (inner by a
family, the heads of which were total
strangers to him. He knew that invita
tions had been extended to others of his
set, who had declined, so he was quite
certain it was not his person that was
wanted. Meeting another young fellow
the latter suggcsted that an experiment
be tried.
"Give it to your valet," said his merry
friend. "I'll wager they will never dis
cover the difierenee; lie's such a bloody
Englishman. They don't know you.
All they want is somebody there, you
know. By Jove! what a laik!"
"Tl1 do it." said the other. And he
did. Instructing his valet, who is fully
as polite and genteel looking as his
master, the latter posted off to the resi
dence at the proper hour in the legation
carriage.
What transpired there may be imag
ined, from the fact that among the din
ner guests given in the society papers
was the name of the young secretary.
and from the account of the affair which
has leaked out through other servants
to whom the valet confided the story, it
would seem from the latter that the
valet got along very well until the wine
began coming around to him too fre
quently. He knew all about his mas
ter's affairs, and discoursed on diplo
matic matters with exceeding volubility.
As he got mellow, however. his dignity
gave way, and his gossip became that
interesting stuff retailed by servards be
low stairs. To anybody who had been
accustomed to move in diplomatic socie
tv, his talk would have betrayed the
real state of the case; but the parvenues
who were entt-rtaining him were igno
rant, and accepte(d his vulgarity as the
eccentricity of foreigners. They piled
every courtesy upon the valet until he
could no longer bear them, but was fin
ally interrupted in the act of making
love to one of the ladies of the house,
put into his carriaze quietly, and sent
home. To the credit of the family, it
may be added that the young secretary
never got another invitation.
Mark Twain's Difficulties in Becom
ing o Confederate.
In his paper in the December Ccrtury,
"The Private History of a Campaign
that Failed," Mark Twain says:
"Out West there was a good deal of
confusion in men's minds during the
first months of the great trouble-a good
deal of unsettledness, of leaning first
this way, then that, then the other way.
It was hard for us to get our bearings.
I call to mind an instance of t his. I was
piloting on the 'Mississippi when the
news came that South Carolina had
gone out of the Union on the 20th of
December, 1860. My pilet-mate was a
New Yorker. He was strong for the
Union; so was I. But he would not lis
ten to me with any patience; my loyalty
was smisched, to his eye, because my
father had owned slaves. I said, in
palliation of this dark fact, that I had
heard my father say, some years before
he died, that slavery wvas at great wrong,
and that he would free the solitary negro
he then owned if he could think it right
to give away the property of the family
when lie wvas so straightened in means.
My mate retorted that a mere impulse
was nothing-anybody could pretend to
a good impulse; and ~went on decrying
my Unionism and libeling my ancestry.
A month later the secession atniosphere
had considerably thickened on the
Lower Mississippi.' and I became a rebel;
so did he. We were together in New
Orleans, the 26th of January,when Louis
iana went out of the Union. He did his
full share of the rebhl shouting, but was
bitterly opposed to letting me do mine.
He said that I camne of bad stock-of
a father who had been willing to set
slaves free. In the following summer
he was piloting a Federal gun-boat and
shoutino for th~e Union again, and I was
in the &onfederate army. I held his
note for somec borrowed money. lie was
one of the most upright men 1 ever
knew: but he repudiated that note with
out hes.itation, becanse I was a rebel,
and the son -of a man who owned
slaves.'
An analysis of some of Lord Ran
dolph Chui-chihlfs recent speeches shows
that he has spoken of Mr. Gladstone as:
"An unkenneled fox"; -'a purblind and
sanctimloniouzs Phiarime"'; '-that evil and
moonstruck M:inig.er"; '-the Moloch of
Midlothian."
