Ordinarily when wo tliiuk of rags wo
think of somutliing that, is utterly
worthless find contemptible, of some
thing that beggars are. clothed in, or
perhaps that boggars have thrown
away. Hamlet could think of no more
contemptuous appellation of his uuelo
than that of "a king of shreds and
patches" a king made of rags and

But as Lord rnlmerston defined dirt as
"matter in tho wrong place," so rags
are only rags when they are. scattered
about. Collected together, sorted out,
and baled, they become merchandise of
great and yearly increasing value. 15y
the census of 1830 there wero in tho
United States C92 paper mills with an
aggregate capital of nearly $o0,000,000.
They employ 25,000 hands, a third of
. whom are women, and pay in wnges
nearly nine millions of dollars. They
use iu the manufacture of tho best
qualities of paper 200,000 tons of cot
ton and linen rags, 75,000 tons of which
aro imported, the remainder being
gathered in this country. Tho value
of these 200,000 tons of raas is over
twenty millions of dollars. Tho begin
nings of this vat wealih may be seen
by those who "brush the dew of tho
early morn"' from the sidewalks of
Chicago, in those prowling women and
children who, with bag and basket,
carefully search the streets and gutters
for tho'llotsam and ji'tsam of tho pre
ceding day. The next grade above
these are the itinerants in wagons, who
go from house to house with tho cry
"rags to buy."
Seeking information in the interest of
the Herald readers the reporter called
on one- of the most extensive rag deal
ers in the city. "There is fully a mill
ion dollars invested in the rag business
in this city. There aro siwnty-live or
eighty places, large and small, where
rags are bought, sorted out and sold to
the paper makers or the woolen mills.
There are at least 1,500 men, women
and children who search tho streets or
go from house to house for rags and
paper. We buy from them, paying
a cent a pound for paper and from lv
to 2J cents a pound lor rags. We send
these rags to our sorting room, where
wo employ women to sort out the dif
ferent kinds and qualities. The linen
is tho best quality. Then come every
kind of while cottons, then the colored.
itiuse tnat are mixeit gooas ol woolen
and siik with cotton aro separated. Silk
is of no use whatever. One would sup
poses that would bo the most valuable,
but the reverse is the case. No means
has yet been discovered of working
silk over to any purpose. T he woolen
rags wc sell to the woolen mill, where
they aro ground up and made into
shoddy. The cotton and linen rags
and the paper wu sell to tho paper
mills. Wo pay our women for sorting
2J cent a pound, and they earn from
$ 1 to $2 a day. Ten dollars a week is a
good average for thoui. The rag pick
ers and gatherers make about a dollar
a day, but in such timas as these, when
people are moving, a gtod deal more.

"Yes. Thoroare successful locomotive

"It works entirely satisfactory and
has been purchased by a largo stock
company, which is planning its practi
cal introduction. The electric engine
of ono sort or another must como into
use iu tho cities. It's cheapness is
enough to bring that nbout. Threo
pounds of coal will produeo as much
electrical power from a stationary en
gine, or live poumls ot coal on an elec
trical locomotive, as seven pound of
coal will produce in steam power on
your present engines. Then your en
gines aro light, your tracks uro light,
and tho riding is smooUi nnd velvety
and not subject to the constant jolts and
jars to which travelers now havo to
submit. You must remember that
your railway tracks aro not built for
cars, but tor locomotives. lho latter
neigh threo or four times tho former,
havo to have heavy and costly tracks,
which at any considerable rate of
speed they hammer with tremendous
force and finally wear out. Tho same
thing is truo in another way of tho ele
vated roads. They rush along tho
framework, causing it to constantly
sway from side to sido with a force
that can only result in cutting off tho
bolt-heads. It takes two men to run a
steam locomotive, while the electrical
machine requires only one. All theso
and many other things make tho ulti
mate introduction of tho electrical en-
no on light roads and in tho cities
"Not on the great roads?"
"I doubt it. That timo may como
but it is not in sight; but right here in
New York you would get rid of dust,
smoke, noise, oil-drippings and gas,
and in tunnels you could havo light
and ventilation where vou aro now
stilled with smoke and gn and deafen
ed by the noise. Tho locomotive it
self would furnish all tho light for the
train. But people are stupid and
won't experiment. They can seo and
understand a cable, and drum and
rope, talk of cable roads, but they don't
understand the electric locomotive,
nnd hence have no confidence in it.
Time will bring it all the same."
"Will electricity ever help us to nav
igato tho air?"
" "Yes, when we can get live or six
times more power per pound of weight
than wc now get from the best form
of small engines. Klectrieity has not
done that yet. Here is the problem,"
tapping his knee stoutly with his list.

direct without the intervention of

people aro at work on it, too, 1 toil

"Ah, I won't say yet! I won't say

1 his is a harvc.il tuuo for them, for
people throw away vast quantities of
paper and old rags.
"Tho rag pickers manage to save a
good deal of money. Mauyof them
bring in their collection every day,
but draw no money until Saturdav,
then, if their account don't amount to
$10, they will bring money enough
with them and get us to pay them a $10
bill, giving us tho difference. They
like to get hold of a teu or a twenty
dollar bill. They are very saving.
"You will see, too, if you look at it
right, that they are very valuable
members of the community. They
produce wealth. Out of mere rubbish
and refuse on the streets they pick out
very nearly if not quite $1,000 of value
every day. That's no small matter. Of
course they pick up other things besides
rags. Many is tho silver coin that they
find, and you may bo suro that they
wouldn't pass a pocketbook by. But
they gather iron, copper, glass, bones,
old rubber shoes, and everything that
is not in a stato of positive decay, all of
which wo buy ol them except bones.

bon. If we could, we could get six

while with the boiler and steam engine
we get only one-horse power from three
pounds of coal. We can't trausmit di

Homicidal and Kuirldal Impulses
That nro Likely to Spring I p.
"Considering tho number of cases of
homicidal and suicidal impulse that
como under tho notice of experts in
nervous diseases," a distinguished
specialist remarked, "it is a wonder to
mo that so few tragedies from that
source really happen. Las' week a
business man in this city, who owns a
handsome country residence on tho
Hudson, and would be regarded by his
acquaintances as tho last person iii lho
world to bo possessed by such a w him,
camo to mo in a great worry of mind
and told mo ho had something to coni
municato that must be held strk'tly in
violate. The story was typical. I havo
heard it with trilling variations a thou
sand times in live years, llo had not
been feeling very well rather nervous
and ill at ease for some days. That
morning, as lio left the house to take
tho train for New York, ho happened
to puss his gardener who was at work
on tho grounds, and stopped to talk to
him a minute. The man was stooping
over a clump, of ornamental shrubbe
ries, thinning out the dead stalks witli a
pruning knife. A spado was leaning
against the trunk of a tree just at his
hand. 'I had never had any quarrel or
misunderstanding with the man,' said
this patient, telling his story. 'But the
impulse was upon mo in an instant to
seize that spado and brain tho poor fel
low on the spot. I trembled all over
liko a leaf, with a kind of uervous terror
that I can hardly describe to you,
Doctor. Tiually, not daring to trust
myself longer, I turned and walked
away as fast as my legs could conven
iently carry mo. I believe, sir, that I
should have killed the man if 1 had
lingered live minutes longer. Now,
what is to be done?"
Tho doctor advised his patient to
avoid temptation for a few days, turn
his mind resolutely to something else,
and gave him a sedative prescription
bromides, of course with instructions
to call again in a day or two. The
man was sensible enough to act ou the
advice, and on tho fourth day he
dropped in and told the doctor that the
trouble had passed off, and lie felt like
himself once more And so a tragedy
was averted probably.
Tho physician went on to say that he
had no less than nine cases of homi
cidal or suicidal impulse then under
treatment. Of these seven were sui
cidal, and the other two homicidal.
One of the latter had been on his
hands for three weeks. 'The patient, a
man of some note in literature, had
been sleepless for several weeks before
the impulse manifested itself. Ho was
a married man. and loved his wife de
votedly. One night, after dozing a few
minutes with terrible dreams, ho awoke
with a strange presentment of unend
ing disaster. His wife was sleeping
quietly. lho mooiUight, struggling
through the window pane, fell upon her
face and wiii.e, shapolv throat. As
sudden as the leap of a tiger, the im
pulso s-eizcii mm to cut tno woman s
throat, and he was actually out of bed
nnd hunting for his razor iu the bureau
drawer, before any realizing sense of
the enormity of tho deed that ho was
about to perpetrate interposed to
prevent the tr.'.gdv. He returned to
bed, and lay in a tremble till daylight.
His wife never knew how near she had
been to death. Ho had had no wish to
kill anybody else as yet.
"One of my suicidal patients," con
tinued tho doctor, "was first seized
with the impulse on a Brooklyn ferry
boat. He had been across the river ou
business, and was on his way back.
Ho went on board one of the boats at
tho Fulton Ferry, and stood gazing
listlessly at the rampart of business
houses extending tar to tno right on
Furmnn street. The boat started sud
denly as he stood ruminating. He in
sists that the impulse had u- origin in
irritation of the retina caused bv tho
movement of the siin-hino-ll'.ided sur
faces of brick across tin; optic held, and
very likely ho was right. -For an in
stant,' he says, 'I was wild; and when
I came to myself my hand was on tho
railing, and a couple of stalwart pas
sengers had collared me. I had never
thought of such a thing as committing
suicide except as a coward's resource'
Now," added the doctor, "this man
was no more mad than 1 am; it was a
typical case of suicidal impulse, caused,
perhaps, by long nervous tension."
In point of f iot, both suicidal and
homicidal impulses appear to be far
less frequent with women than men.

women, while of the sterner sex his
