Hebe, the elephant, is very sick.

Hebe, though a gentle and sagacious
elephant, has a prejudice against doc

A Large Piano Manufactory.
While it was well known that the Men
delssohn Piano was really a reliable and
excellent instrument, it was hardly sus
pected by the other manufacturers that the
demand for it nud increased to such an
extent as to warrant tbe makers in crcctin"
the largest piano manufactory in the world
as a c?ntennial memorial ot the success of
the instrument ; but such was the case, ami
to-day the Mendelssohn Piano Manutactoty,
eight stories in height, covering 78,000
feet of ground, from its location on the
corner of Tenth Avenue and 57th street,
overlooks the Hudson River and the greater
rt i of , Manhattan Island.- Chicago
The large factory of the Mendelssohn
Piano Company corner ot Fifty-seventh
street and Tenth avenue, is well worth a
viiit. One can here witness the various
and interesting steps in the progress of
transforming the rough lumber and melal
into highly finished instruments. In the
sale of these pianos, the Company have
undertaken to treat the people with factory
prices, employing no agents. Instruments
are sent on trial, and a very intelligent idea
of what they are, and what musical people
think about them, can be obtained by
sending for an illustrative and descriptive
catalogue. With no expensive agents and
commissions, the Company decline to give
any discounts, thinking the lovraess of
their prices and the merit ot their goods
will receive a liberal recognition from piano
buyers.) Morris Pillips in Home Journal,
July 4, 1877.
Mr. George E. O'Hara, the live druggist

"All paper money." said a Treasury
officer in conversation with a Chronicle
reporter, u few days ago, "both legal
tenders and national securities, is now
engraved, printed and finished in the
Ruronti ot Engraving and Printing at
Washington. Some years ago, one
half the note was finished in New York
by the Columbia Rank Note Compauy,
but that lias been done away with for
some time. Under an act of Congress,
a building has just been completed for
the sole use of the bureau. I'efore
moving into this, they occupied a part
of the Treasury Department."
What alsml tho process of making a
"Tho process of making tho green
back and other government securities is
this: The paper is lirst taken to the
welting di vision. There it is counted
and dampened. It is then delivered to
the plate printers, each sheet being
charged to them. They again count it
in the oresenen of their assistant, who
is a lady, and give a receipt therefor,
tho assistant certifying that she witness
ed the count. 'I he receipts are taken
to the wetting division, where tlnry"ite
compared with the books before- tho
work is begun, and must agree. This
is done w ith a hand press. Attached to
all these presses are registers, which
keep count of each sheet of paper as it
pusses through, so it is Impossible to
si crete anv without bein detected.
The note then passes into the examin
ing divi.Mon, where it is counted while
wet and placed in a drying box. When
perfectly dry it is taken out and again
counted, and the work examined by
experts, all of whom are ladies. Tho
sheets found defective, in any way, aro
cancelled, and the perfect ones placed
in a hydraulic press, w here an immense
pressuro is given them. When taken
out they are perfectly smooth. They
are then sent back to tho wetting
division, where they are again dampen
ed." "What is the next step in their manu
facture?" "Well, they are taken to tho printing
division, where they receive the second
impression, w hich is the black part of
tho face, after which they are- taken
to the examining division, the dry box,
the hydraulic press, and back again to
the wetting division, the same as at first.
They are taken from here the third time
to the State printing division, where
the third impression is received, which
is the largo red seal on the face. After
this they aro taken to the examining
room, dried, pressed, counted anil ex
amined, tho same as on both previous
occasions. From hero they are sent to
tho numbering division, where they
receive the numbers that are seen on
the upper right corner and left center.
Roth 'legal tender and national bank
notes are. printed on sheets, and there
arealwajs four notes on each. After
being numbered, tho legal tender notes
are taken to another room, where tho
margin is trimmed from tho paper,
and the notes separated. This is all
done (ry machinery. After being separ
ated, they are again counted and
placed in packages of one thousand
notes each. 1 his is also done by ladies,
who are experts. One lady, a Mrs.
Silver, will count ono thousand notes in
live minutes. This is the final count
They aro then ready for delivery to tho
parties authorized to receive them.
The national bank notes are not separ
ated, but are sent to tho banks that
issued them in sheets of four each, so
that they may be more readily signed.
Tho rules governing Hie Bureau of En
graving and Printing aro very strict.
In fact, during working hours, tho
employes are treated morn like prison
ers than they aro like ladies or gentle
man. From one thousand to lifleon
hundred persons are employed there,
the ladies outnumbering tho gentle
Dr. X. is an eminent physician of
Philadelphia, and, as is often the case
with eminent physicians, is brusque and
overbearing iu manner. Among his
office patieiiLsonemorningwas a gent Io
nian who, nfler occupying exactly livo
minutes of the great man's lime, took a
$10 note from his pocket, and inquired
the nmotint of ihe fee. "Fifty dollars,"
said t ho impatient iued;eal man. The
patient, demurred a little, whereupon
tin! physician rudely remarked. "Well,
w hat tin ini expect to p.-n ? Give mo
w hat you have got," anil on receiving
the lo bill, turned scornfully to his
negro son ant ami handing the money,
remarked: "That is for jou, Jini,""
but lost his temper still more when bis
patient coolly said: "I did not know
before that you had a partner. Good
