EFFECTS OF INHALING THE DUST
OF WORKSHOPS AND MILLS.
Irritation of the Lang Oils, Which Re

Maker. Stone Cnttera and Glass worker
Occupy I'npleaftunt Positions.
There are many occupations in which enor
mous quantities of dust are evolved and float
in the air of workrooms, so that the people
eannioyea tiwre are continually Inhaling It
with every breath. The dust entering the
Jungs may act in two ways it may set up
irritation in the mucous membrane, or it may
be taken up by the Wood and produce acute
or clironie poLsouing.
By whatever method the particles reach
the interior of the luii cells, their presence
Is a constant cause m irritation, resulting
in inflammatory processes, which produces
abacames, ulcerations and consumption. The
liability to this disease is preatest in persons
who are obliged to sit or stand in a bent over
position all day If f requont clinnsro of atti
tudo were allowable, with plenty of free
muscular exercise, the tendency to consump
tion would lie prewtly diminished. "Hirp" is
or tne opinion that the inhaling of dust pro
duces acute pneumonia. Kilo cutters work
with hammer and cold chisel, holding the
blank on tho anvil by a strap passing under
the feet, while putting sund or other dust on
the anvil to keep the iron from slipping.
They have to Ix'iid over tlieir work and keep
their eyes steadily lixed upon it; they thereby
inhale metallic and mineral dust.
- CRINOKKS ASTHMA."
In funking course lilos a lare amount of
bodily exertion is needed, as tho hammers
weigh between live und six pounds. The
work requires n very delicate touch, with
constant variation of the force of the blow,
because it is imiossible to make all the blanks
the samo degree of hardness. Consumption
Is very common umong them.
Grinders, pin jxiintors, needle makers, cut
ters, etc., inhale mixture of metallic and min
eral dust. These occupations are among the
most dangerous that can be followed. The
steel and iron implements are pressed upon
grindstones revolving at tlio rate of 2,000 to
3.000 times a minute. The operation requires
great physieul slrenth Hnd a very con
strained attitude. Tho danger lies in the
amount of dust taken into the lungs and the
position of the workmen. It reaches its
height in the Kr'"l'"fs of forks, which must
be done on dry stones to avoid rust. Kazors.
cLors, table kuivis ure ground lirst on dry
and then on wet stones, so the danger is some
what lessened. Saws and all tho coarse im
plements are grrnid ou wet stones, and in
this instance the danger is at its minimum.
The form of phthisis caused by metallic dust
is called "grinder's nsthnia."
The disease conies on slowly, and its dura
tion may le extended over four or five years.
It begins with n dry, bucking cough with lit
tle expectoration, und nausea and vomiting
in the morning; then comes a dull feeling in
the chest, with weak respiration. Could the
person abandon work at this time, recovery
would t possible in most eii.sij. If work is
continued the Ian-' tissue begins to break
down, and ravitis form near tho "apices" or
top of the lungs. Grinders of steel ore liable
to injury from flying particles of metal which
are intensely Iieuted by friction and scatter
in the form of sparks, often causing severe
burns of the eye. They should wear plain
glasses or lino wire, gituo spectacles. Those
who work at wet grinding, while relieved
from dust dangers, are covered with spat
tering of mud and tvuter, ond are constantly
kept wet and cold, thus v posing themselves
to pneumonia and rheurna; ism. A good idea

There are tunny conflicting opinions re
garding tho inhalation of mineral dust.

The workmen who make Portland Cement
are greatly troubled by the dust caused
by shoveling tin mus into sacks after
it has been burned and ground They
have a persistent cough and often ex
pectorate liitlo lumps of cement. It is im
possible for the workmen to continue their
labor day after day, consequently they are
obliged to tike intervulsof rest. Sstonocutters
work with a hummer and chisel, and they not
only inhale quuntiiits of dut, but are liable
to injure the eyes by tho flying chips and
parks from tho chivl. It is the common
opinion of all writers that rnilLstone cutters
are more affected by their work than any
other of this class. Peacock gives the duration
of working at this trade atiotit nine ycurs.
Workers in pottery and porcelain aro ex
posed to many injuries. For Instance, siting
and mixing tho earth used, then grinding
away the uneven places on articles already
baked cause a groat iUil of dust. 1 he flat
pressers, who force the day into molds with
. a j eat losti of muscular strength, are espe
cially affected. So common is emphysema
among them that it is culled "potters'
asthma." To the china scourers the flint dust
is a terrible irritant, und umong female
workers tho mortality is enormous.
The burners are ex iosed to a temperature
of 104 degs. and suiTer from sudden changes,
which produce acute pulmonary diseases,
rheumatism and iutjtinul disorders. The
namels used ou the different kinds of porce
lain contain lead, and there aro many cases
of lead poisoning among tho workers in this
branch of the business. The mixers of clay
are said to lo troubled with muscular pains,
specially in tho tendons of the lingers, Limo
and plaster burners hi plx-fler mills aro ex
posed to dust, but do not apjiear to suffer
Men working in glass manufactories, espe
cially those who grind and powder tho sili
cious material, inhale great quantities of irri
tating dust und suffer greatly from a constant
backing cough. It is rare to lind a sound
man among them. They cunnot work long
atthistrado. "ilirt" says they should not
be allowed to work more thun two or three
weeks at a stretch, and should then work at
something else, or at least rive ud this oceu
pation for double the working tuna In this
way, uy tne use or reluys. the u!ulth of the
men may be sustained. Th most daugnrous
work is dono by tlio grinders and olishers of
cut glass. About & per cent, among them
have chronic pneumonia, and the average
age at death is given from 'M to 4J years.
A Ieudly Railroad.
Nobody will ever know how many lives the
building of the Canadian Pucillc railroad
through Maine cost. Tho dead unknowns
have beeu buried like sheep. A correspond
ent of The Dexter Gazette, writing from
EUiotaville, fjiys: "An old, unused burying
ground (where uu interment hud not taken
place for twenty-live years prior to the com
mencement of the Canadian Pucific railroad)
is being rapidly filled up. A few days ago
your correiipondont counted, scattered around
among the skohttotis of old horses, seven

remains of workmen on tho Canadian Pacific
who bad no friends in this part of the world."

The Great Painter and His Masterpiece.
' A Legend of the Alps.
There was once a great painter whose equal
was not to be found among all his contempo
raries. Bat he was a man who had no fixed
belief, no moral life, and who therefore lived
at meet like a barbarian. Now at one tune
a high dignitary of the church, who was
about to build a magnificent chapel and was
willing to intrust the work only to tho most
famous and most skillful artists, engaged him
to paint the altar piece. Long did the mas
ter consider his subject, and Anally, fearing
that the world might doubt his ability, be
gan his work. lie painted tho "Penitent
Magdalen," and so touehingly beautiful was
it that many a poor offender was converted
upon seeing his picture, and was encouraged
to begin a new life. But on tho completion
of his work, in his overweening pride ho wrote
in one corner of the picture: "Not in God's
honor, but for my fame." These godless
words the painter hid lienealh the wido,
Not long afterwards the artist died.
But rest was not granted him even in the
grave. He who in his whole life had never
done anything out of reveretne for God uow
rose every night from the tomb in the vain
attempt to paint a work for tho redemption
of his soul. But the words placed uisiti his
altarpiece crippled his power, aad at the first
cock crow he sadly (led lack to the tocib.
One day there came into the i-hurcb a
Strange woman. She was miserably clad;
her woru out shoes luirelv clung to her swollen
feet, and her long hnir hung matted over her
breast and shoulders. Her t'aco was pale, and
she walked with univrtain and faltering
steps. Ah, how different had it ntu-e lieen!
Then sho was young and beautiful, ah, so
beautiful, and she had been beloved by the
great paint-r, and with him she bad lived
many years in conscienceless revel and riot,
just as th' master had taught her.
Hut now she came from the holy sepulcher,
whither she had traveled to pay eiiaiice for
her sin. Slio knelt liefore the altar, ami at
the sight of tho Magdalen such unutterable
joy rume into her heart that a Hood of tears
rushed to her eyes. I
hen at last they wished to awaken her. I
sho had fallen asleep forever before the paint
ing. But tlio part tiiKia which her furs bad
fallen wuseffacisl, together wish tlu godless
words and tlio name of the painter. Both

A Unity Old King.
Two American boys made the acquaint
ance of the king of Denmark under verv pe
culiar circumstances. They were skylarking
in tho streets of CoiviiIui;fii, and one boy
tossed the other's hat into a tree. While the
victim was trying to diModge it there came
along an old gent Ionian with an unbrella under
his arm aud his head buried in his book.
"Please, sir," said the hailess lmy, ill you
get my hut?" The old gentleman fished
around with his umbrella for almut live
minutes, and failing to dislodge the hut, al
lowed the boy to mount his shoulders, and,
wun mo umbrella, tinally captured the hat.
As the boy dismounted and thanked the old
gentleman, another gentleman came along,
who saluted and called tlio one with the um
brella "your majesty." Ik-ing an American,
our boy was not paralyzed, but he thinks the
king deserve his kingdom. Iu fact, the king
of Denmark is a capital fellow. He loves to
minglo with the people iu their amusements,
and there is no fol-dewol of royalt y about
him. Golden Days.
EUecN of Heavy flair.
"I do not believe that heavy hair takes
away strength," said a leading physician the
other day. "Heavy hair may tie burdensome
to weuk lople by its weight in tho same wav
that a heavy hut or lionnet might bo. Its
growth is ou!y weakening in the some sense
that nil growth may be, and tho growth i
ordinarily compensated for by food. In any
event there is no way of retarding the growth
of the hair; cutting only stimulates it, but it
may relievo tho sense of weight.
"We should do nothing for tho hair of a
child beyond keeping tho head clean. II any
children are extremely slow in getting hair,
but it comes ultimately, and, so far us obser
vation i an authority, just as abundantly as
in other ciiildrcu. Tho growth and develop

It was some years ngo that four trusted
and popular employes of a certain well
known firm here pulled out and started in
business for themselves in the same line. For
a time everything went along smoothly, and
the orders rolled in from their old customers.
Then the head of the firm went east on busi
ness, and a week or so later the startling
news came that he hod fallen into the ma
chinery of a mill and had been crushed to
death. It was not many months later that
the junior member of the firm went away,
and while traveling he was killed in a rail
road accident. Then the third member of
the quartet was mysteriously murdered, and
now the surviving member i3 wondering if
an untimely death is to be his lot. It was a
