("H'iil to the feat of turning a negro's
i;i permanently white. The question
(p." ho transposition of color in the cuticle
of the two races has been given a local
r.nl peculiar interest by an experiment
in Iho grafting of the skin of a negro
a; ( pii a white man by Dr. John Ege, of
Tin? experiment of Dr. Ege was made
for the purpose of healing a wound on
the leg of a white man, and if it suc
ceeded in this It was all that was ex
pected of it. Not only did it do this, but
as the wound began to heal Dr. Ego was
surprised to notice the 80 particles of
black skin transplanted were gradually
losing their color, and by the time the
wound had entirely healed the new sur
face was as white as if the cuticle be
longed by nature to the spot to which it
was transplanted. Tills result was sur
prising to the doctor, because medical
men havp hitherto declared that colored
skin, wherever transplanted, would re
tain its color. It seems probable now,
therefore, that some of the theory of skin
grafting may undergo a change, and that
in the future one maybe enabled to
change one's skin as easily as the Pari
sian belle the color of her hair.
A physician, in seriously discussing
the matter, said that the original cause
of the .difference in the color of the skin
of different races is still a matter of some
dispute Some authorities on the sub
ject maintain that it is attributable solely
to climate. In contradiction of this,
however, other authorities prove that the
dark color of the 6kin does not depend
upon geographical position, nor even al
together on racial purity, by the fact that
the extremes of the chromatic scale are
found throughout the whole negro do
main. Dr. J. V. Shoemaker, the eminent der
matologist of this city, in speaking of
the result of Dr. Ego's experiment, said
that, in his opinion, a negro's skin grafted
upon a white man would probably lose
its color, the process of cutting disturb
ing the cells containing the coloring mat
ter. Dr. H. C. Boeuning, demonstrator
of anatomy at the Medico Chirurgical
College, also holds this opinion, but at
the same time says it is imperative that
the particles of skin transplanted should
be very minute, as in the caso of Dr
Eges experiment. Dr. Boeuning also
said that while colored skin transplanted
on a white man will lose its color and be
come white, white skin grafted upon a
negro would never become black. Frohi
this it will be seen that although a negro
might possibly be turned white, those
white persons who are so enamored of
the soft, glossy, unctuous epidermis of
the negro as to desire a change are de
barred by nature from indulging their
peculiar taste. Philadelplua Record.
The Good Book.
A good book who can exaggerate its
power? Benjamin Franklin said that
his reading of Cotton Mather's "Essays to
Do Good" in childhood gave liim holy
aspirations for all the rest of his life.
George Law declared that a biography
he read in childhood gave him all his
subsequent prosperities. A clergyman,
many years ago, passing to the far west,
stopped at a Hotel, lie saw a woman
copying something from Doddridge's
"Rise and Progress." It seemed that
she had borrowed the book, and thero
were some things she wanted especially
to remember. The clergyman had in his
satchel a copy of Doddridge's "Rise and
Progress, " and so he made her a present
of it. Thirty years passed on. The
clergyman came that way and he asked
where the woman was whom he had
seen long ago. They said: "She lives
yonder, in that beautiful house." Ho
went there and said to her: "Do you
remember me?" She said: "No;
i uo not. lie said: uo you
remember a man gave you Doddridge's
'Rise and Progress 80 years ago? "Oh,
yes; l remember, lhat book saved my
soul. I loaned the book to all my
neighbors, and they, read it and they
were converted to God, and we had a
revival of religion which swept through
the whole community. We built a
church and called a pastor. You see

COALING AT ST. THOMAS.
Graphic Dtacrlptlon of Phase of West
India Life-Old Nancy-The Mnittr of
Ceremonies Wild Congo Songs
A correspondent who recently visited
Iho "West Indies writes :
The scene was a strange ono to un
familiar eyes this coaling of a ship by
women. You will witness it at St.
Thomas and Kingston, Jamaica, to the
best advantage. Hcarcely had the Al
liance's nose pointed around the fort at
the entrance when numerous boats con
taining the "coal ladies" appeared ap
proaching the coal station, located on an
island half a mile from the town. The
ship was quickly laid alongside the
wharf, and the taking in of fuel com
menced. The coal is piled on tlio shore
a distance of 200 feet from the ship, and
150 strapping wenches bore it to the man
holes of the bunkers on board. Each of
the women carried on her head a coarse
splint basket containing 100 pounds of
coal. Their raiment was severely sim
ple aeotton bodice and a scanty skirt
drawn up to the knees by a cord around
the thighs. Very black were the brawny
legs which appeared below the Eve-like
drapery, and large and naturally formed
were the bare feet with their hard, yel
Before the work commenced the dusky
Amazons stood in a double row in front
of the heaps of coaL They grinned like
so many monkeys, and their jargon tho
strange, mongrel English the Jamaica
and Barbadoes negroes utter poured
irjni thoirlipsababelof uncouth sounds.
Startling were some of the jokes they
threw at one another.
"Do you see that woman?" said tho
aent, as he pointed toward a powerfully
built woman with a hard, shining black
faco and grizzled wool. "That is old
Nancy. She is 85 years old and is the
foulest mouthed wench in the West In-
tliej. Every shipmaster who has sailed
i these waters knows her. She espe-
::ally interested Anthony Trollope when
he came to inspect the islands for the
British government. Froude, the lus-
.orian, noticed her. She can carry 400
biskets of coal a day. "
A tall black man armed with a heavy
slick was master of ceremonies. When
.i!lwas ready he called: "Take your
oa-skets, ladies." Each woman seized
her basket and turned toward the coal
pile. "Ready," was the verbal signal,
and quickly the baskets were failed with
innre lumns and the dust of coal. After
ward there was no cessation of the toil.
The women would swing the heavy bas
ket to the top of the head with a single
and apparently easy motion, resting the
bottom on a Bmall mat of cloth which
lay on the wool. Down the wharf they
trotted, some bearh g the 100 pounds of
dead weight without supporting the bas
ket by a hand. The tough " Old Nancy, "
previously mentioned, drew her pipe
from the rncrs of her bodice, struck a
.natch, ignited it, and Bmoked after 6he
had swung the basket of coal on her
ead, and was jogging to tho ship. The
,; ladies" hustled one another in anything
but a ladylike manner. The more active
ones endeavored to get ahead of others
who were in their way as the living
ctream of workers reached the gang
plank. The women are paid for each
basket of coal poured into the bunkers,
As they pass a small building at the head
,f the wharf with full baskets a cent is
.landed to each of the carriers. Thero
are some women who can move 400 bas
kets a day, or 20 tons of 2,000 pounds,
Others carry a less number of baskets,
xudis the gangplank admits only three
.arriers abreast, the slow ones hamper
the fast workers. The latter endeavor to
get ahead. I saw a woman drop almost
to her knees on the plank and, with has
ket on head, seek to crawl under the up
lifted arm of a tall wench m front.
The master of ceremonies stood at tho
side of the gangplank with uplifted stick,
When he detected any unfairness he ex
:laimed in warning tones, "Ladies!" The
offense repeated led to a deprecating "Oh,
doant do so, dears. Next came, "Oh,
Car'line, doant do dat." By this time
patience was exhausted, and a sharp call
to "Caroline," or to "Miss Clem, "or to
"you dar, nigger," was followed by a
tremendous whack of the stick on the
back or legs of the offender. The sound
of the blows would rise above the din of
the coaling. The victim would grin and
the others would jeer at her, but no one
appeared to regard the punishment un-
tindly, or for that matter seriously.
Now and then the women would break
down, no doubt, from their ancestors
who roamed in the Congo forests. Wild
and weird the Strang song rose above
the bustle of the wharf. When the sun
set and the dark tropical night quickly
fell on ship and shore, flambeaux large
iron cages set on poles and containing
dry wood were ignited, and the nicker
ing flames cast their radiance over the
motley throng. The energy of the women
seemed to increase when the beacons
were ablaze, and they sang, shouted,
swore, and laughed with greater zest
Three hundred and forty tons of coal
were placed in the ship between 1 and 7
o'clock, despite heavy rain during the
afternoon. And the coal once in, the al
iaance left the lights on the hillsides of
Charlotte-Amelie behind her and pro
ceeded southward toward the equator.

The First Great Ocean Steamship Hare.
There are, undoubtedly, many men and
women in New York to-day who went
down to the Battery and cheered and
waved their hands in gieeting to the lfrst
steamship that entered this port from
Lurope. This important event took
place on April 23, 1838, and it was doubly
interesting and significant because not
only the first transatlantic steamship
came to anchor in the harbor that day.
but the second also; steam travel across
the sea thus beginning with a race that
was earnestly contested and brilliantly
won. Furthermore, it was a race that
attracted infinitely more attention than
any of the contests that have succeeded
it. Two steam vessels had crossed the
Atlantic in years previous, both having
started from this side; the Savannah,
from Savannah, in 1819; and tho Royal
William, from Quebec, in 1831, but
neither of these voyages had demon
strated the feasibility of abandoning the
line sailing packets and clippers for
steamers when it came to a long voyage.
The Savannah used both steam and sail
during 18 of the 25 days required for a
passage to Liverpool, and more than one
clipper overtook and passed her during
the voyage. The Royal William had to
utilize all her hold for coal in order to
carry sufficient fuel to insure a comple
tion of the voyage. Public interest ac
cordingly was deeply stirred on both
sides of the ocean when, in 1837, it was
learned that two Bteam vessels were on
the stocks, building for the American
service, inese were tne binus, at Lon
don, and the Great Western, at Bristol.
It was these vessels that made the first
race ; the birius making the trip, meas
ured from Queenstown, in 18 days, and
the Great Western in 14J days. The
Sirius, having had nearly four days' start,
came in a few hours ahead of the win
ner. She brought seven passengers, and
whether the Great Western had others
than her crew on board can not now be
ascertained. From Ocean Passenger

Ambition Is Epidemic in Washington.
You are not surprised when the man
who takes your garbage from your door
takes off his hat with some show of good
breeding, and, with an apology for his
profession, assures you that he has seen
better days. It is quite in the nature of
things that the ashman should seek an
opportunity to let it be known that he
never sifts for cinders, but merely dumps
his load, leaving the sifting for a humbler
class of citizens. So on up the scale of
society each one has some pretense upon
which to base a claim to more than ho
actually possesses. Each individual's
style of living is a little more extravagant,
a nttie more pretentious, than that or a
man of similar occupation elsewhere,
The messengers in the departments imi
tate the style of the clerks, who in turn
imitate their chiefs. The chiefs imitate
their superiors in office, and so on it runs
up to Congress and the cabinet. The
Senate and the cabinet having no one to
imitate, each member vies with all the
rest, in the true spirit of millionaires that
they are. Nay, they imitate the extrava
gance of tho great Government whose

Why He Carried a Cane.
"I carry a cane from motives -of
economy, said a young lawyer, "l
graduated from collego five years ago,
and I haven't carried a stick since my
freshman year. Still, as I am not such
a fool as not to know enough to get out
of the rain, I have always carried an
umbrella in bad weather. As a matter
of fact I found I was losing about 12
umbrellas a year, simply because of not
carrying a cane. I never thought of my
umbrella unless it was actually raining
when I got outside and could return
quick enough to get it before some one
grabbed it. One day I lost my own
umbrella and my wife's as well. The
two cost $15. Since then I have car
ried a cane on pleasant days and I never
lose an umbrella. It's a great economy. "
