PAETIIOLDi'S GREAT STATUE.
A frenchman's Description of it, and the
Proems of Construction.
The iiniiu'iiso si-atVoliling that can bo
pi'cu iiv tin' direction of tho Hue do
Chast'lles, reaching over tho highest
houses iu the neighborhood, onelo.se ex
amination displays the lines of a human
form, and the gigantic folds of the robe
that drapes it. It is in truth a statue,
the greatest that was ever constructed
up to tin' present time tho statue of
Lihcriy wliieh the sculptor, Uartholdi.
conceived and winch is destined to servo
as a beacon at the entrance to the port
01 aow iui'k. from eigiuv to ninetv
artisans are kept constantly employed
upon tuo work, lne statue is already
completed to the chest. Perhaps iu its
present condition it can be seen to the
Lest advantage. Its extraordinary pro
portions can be viewed, and, as it is not
completed, it is possible to take in all
of the construction of this gigantic
work, which will probably remain uu
equaled among the works of bronze.
The plaster molds of the enormous
limbs thrown across the yard, and tho
busy workmen covering them with in
numerable pieces of wood that repro
duce all the contours and lines, remind
one of the well-known scene of (liilllver
at Li'.Iiput. The men look like tiny
dwarfs endeavoring to bind a giant.
And. if by miracle that great hand
could become alive and simply open its
closed ringers, all that solid wood-work
would Ily in splinters, and the immense
Fcatlbldi'ng would come down 'ike a
castle of cards.
The lir.-t model was enlarged four
times. Then it was cut into slices, and
these slices are taken one after the other
and again enlarged to four times their
original size, and thus the dimensions
of the colossal statue are obtained. At
present the workmen are engaged upon
the iiortiuii that forms the chest. The
model of it can be wen in the shed. It
looks like a little hill, over which the
men are constantly crossing. When
the draught or model of a portion of it
is made, impressions are taken of it. In
order to do this, it is necessary to gather
together hundreds of little jdanks, cut
precisely upon the outlines of the model,
and in this way a mold is obtained, that
is divided into as many fragments as are
necessary. I'pon thee fragments the
eopjier is cut and hammered until it
copies the precise forms. Ten Chinese
goiig-. would not make a greater noie
than is made a'.l day long in the corner
of the hhed where the copper is ham
mered, and this continuous and deafen
ing noisH contributes not a little to the
KtMnne impression that one gets from a
When the shaping of a piece of the
copper is completed, it become!, a part
of the statue, aud ficre is nothing fur
ther to do with it except to put it in its
place. Just now t tu y arc engaged in
the work of tini.-hing the left hand. The
n.v.l of the tirst tinker would make a
COod-sized shield. The top of the finger

William the t'oiiipiercr. who passed for
the liigi'ct man of his tinie.might easily
get into one of the phalanges.
In six months the whole work will be
fini-hed. There remain only tho chest
and the left arm to complete. The

Do You Want Wiulow Gardens.
Those who cultivate house plants,
usually set them out iu the open ground
for the summer. Here, they are allow
ed to grow at will, and often increase
lo several times their former si.e.
When tho amateur is warned by tho
approach of frost that ho must take in
his plants, ho finds that lie has a lot of
unmanagablo subjects. The roots are
many t,mon too largo for the pots, vvhilo
the tops havo run wild and made a
tangled mass, quite unsuited to window
culture. As a rule, geraniums, verbe
nas, and other soft-wooded plants when
set in the ground are not worth anything
afterwards. It is much better to strike
cuttings from tho old plants, and de
pend upon these for tho window in
winter. With a view to preparing a
stock of young plants, we have, in ear
lier months, described easy methods of
propagation, If this has been neglected
and old plants must bo ued, if anc,
the work of taking them up should bo
done in .September. If left out until
tho nights become cool, tho growth of
tho plants is checked. If taken up.
they do not readily recover from tne
shock of removal, and tho window
garden becomes a hospital for strug
gling plants. When overgrown, cut the
plants back into shape, both at root
and top. and pot them. Severe treat
ment will be needed, but if this be done
early, thero will be time for them to re
cover. After a few days in the shade,
give tliem a warm and sheltered place,
and they will recuperate aud start into
new growth before it is time to take
them in doors. While it is not advisa
ble to tako in house-plants too early,
they should bo protected during cool
nights, ami it is well to keep them on a
piazza or in some other place where
they will have sufficient protection.

Tha Smoking Car.
Many men though they may not wish
to smoke, on taking a train for a short
trip usually prefer a seat iu the smok
ing oar. they say that, in case of a
crowd, when onco they get a seat in a
emokingear it is theiruniil they choose
to give it up. Besides they like the com
pany; it is free ami easy, good matured
and jolly. One seldom sees a sour face
in tho smoking car. If there is one, it
soon vanishes to the rear after it ha's
tinished pulling its own cigar Most of
the pleasant stories of the train are tc Id
in the, smoking car, many good so; iT,
aro there sung, aud no one object 3 o
music or hearty laughter. Contagious
diseases and insects don't like to ban"1
around in the tobacco-smellin up"
holstcry of the old "smoker" often
older and more rickety than it might to
be. The good railroad niaus.ger pro
vides a comfortably constructed" bright,
cheery coach for "ln'3 cigar-loving pas
sengers, and as they smoke theyldess
him. Tho smoking car is one of'the in
stitutions of American travel. Lone
may it roll.
A western exchange tells us that a
San Francisco girl who is worth $2,
000,000 is hunting in vain for a man
with eyes like sapphires, and savs she
will never, never, never marrv anv oth
er sort of a man. Well, sis, youTf prob
ably die an old maid. Young men with
ryes like sapphires arc mighty scarce.
But if you want a vouiigiiian" with a
noso like a ruby. ui probably wouldn't
have to walk farther than haif a square
