Tho Japanese artisan has four hands
and tttelvo fingers. Ho uses his feet as
an extra pair of hands, and his two great
toes con wrap themselves around tho
articles with which ho works liko on
American's thumb. I saw n cooper at
work mending a bucket. Ho held tho
bucket between ttls foot whilo ho sat
down to his work and put on tho hoops
with a hammer and wedge. His legs
wcro bare and his cue wastlod in tho
old Jnponoso fashion, whilo his almond
eyes closely watched tho work ho had
before him. After ten minutes of pound
inir ho laid down Ids tools and took a
Biuoko, and during tho hour that I Bat
near him ho smoked four times. Tho
Jnpancso pipo only holds a pinch of
tobacco, and ho could do this cheaply,
but tho tlmo consumed was at least
twenty minutes. This perpetual siesta
is ono of tho featured of JapaiiLso labor,
I am told by old Am-ricfin residents that
a Japanese workman will not do ono
third as much a dcy an an Atuorican
workman, and lnoicrycaso they seem
to do their work in lift hardest of w ays.
Tho methods of labor in Japan tiro tho
direct opposite of thoso in America. Tho
c irpcnters, for Instance, pull thoir planes
the other way, and when they uso tho
draw ing knifo thoy push it from them
instead of pulling it towards them. They
do most of their work sitting and they
do all tho work on the pull stroko in
stead of the push stroke, and thoy btand
tho board as a rulo nt tin agio of 45 dogs,
against something rather than lay it on
a bench or sawhoiue us we do. They do
their marking, not w Itli chalk, but with
a reel and an InKcd btrlng when thoy
u ish to saw In u Gtruight lino, and tho
whole of tho work of turning tho rough
liys into the finest of cabinet work is
dono by hand.
Tlicro uro no pinning mills in Japan,
and tho sawmills can bo counted on tho
fingers of ono hand. Tho tuual method
of baw ing logs into boards is to stand the
log at nn angle against tho support and
saw it by baud 'Die saw utcd is not tho
pou crful cross cut saw of America, but
a w ido short Japanuo Instrument, w hich
has a handle about two feet long, and
u hich looks HLo a butcher's clearer filed
into a Baw.
Tho human Ban mill stands on top of
tliejogor under It, and pulls away for
ten hours a day lor about thirty cents.
Skilled carpentcis hi dtks got about
foity American i.uils u day, and the best
men in the uumttcbddo not got over forty
fho. Still, you will find no better work'
men in tho world than hcio. 'Their work
h dono Ith tho Ube ot very few nulls
and thoy lmo to bu cabinetmakers os
v. ell as carpenters. Every Jnpancso houw
has walls whldi must movo in grooves
hi and out every day, and tho ordinary
homo is ns finely put together as n bureau.
Tho joining of over) thing is by dovetail
ing, nnd tho Japuuu.o could teach our
American workmen much in tho polish
ing and joining of fine woods.

One of the most lovely of Alpine
health resorts Is I!ul-Kreuth, a hamlet
of somo half dozen hoaccs built by tho

charm of tho resort is not, how over, duo

waters, but to the fact that its landlord

Maximilian and tho brother of tho cm-

ho wished to marry n lady of inferior
social position, with whom ho had fallen
Tho niarrlnco proved to bo a happy
ono, and to this day, though mora than

Two or threo .hundred of these
