MILES OF BOSTON PIES.

Several newspaper writer, assort that Bos
ton is Uio home of tho teal pie. They have
been all over the Uabi able globe, and are
therefore competent to give opinions. Other
facts lead me to declare I hat we ought to take
a sort of local pride in tl e pie; for not only is
it associated with touch of our fcirly history,
but is at prenent one of the distinguishing
marks whereby to test U e genuine Boston ian.
A stomach that will stand the domands made
for gastric juice by the miscnilaueous ingre
dients that go to form any oue of our typical
pies must surely have something in common
with the moral and meiitul forces that ha ve
given our institutions t heir undoubted pre
eminence. And that a pie eating population
is likely to arrive at t be highest stage of
human development Is attested by the sum
mits we have reached in intellectual and
physical field Not only have we produced
poets and philosophers, iiut also pugilists and
A DAT FOR 1,440 PIES.
What a mighty achievement this is will be
come evident to the mos- superficial observer
when he learns that pl.ysician of a studious
turn of mind has calculated that every pie
taken into the human stomach abbreviates
the life of the possessor of that stomach by at
least one minute. That is to say, when you
have eaten 1,440 pies, you have subtracted
one day from the whole number of days
which the Creator was w iUing you might live.
Perhaps you will laugh row, and say that you
wQl not eat 1,440 pios in a lifetime. Very
well. Granted that you would not. How do
you know that you will not have just finished
your 1,440th pie when a minute that might
have been saved by n fusing that 1,440th,
would have prolonged your heart beats for a
space sufficient to give you almost a fresh
start? Again, the stuc.ious physician says
that, after you have et ton your fiftieth pie,
the destructibllity incretses, and thenceforth
two minutes are "docked" from your time
for every pie devoured, and so on iu propor
tion until by and by a p e takes an hour from
the proper period of your oxistenco. There
fore, consider well tho facts bofore you in
sist on obtaining cultuit- by means of the pie,
and at the eipeuso of a reen old age.
I-was eating in a Niw York restaurant
ones when a man whom I had scarcely no
ticed said to me:
"Sullivan!" I replied; "what Sullivan?"
"Why, John L.; you come from Boston,
"Yes; I came from B ston," I replied ; "but
how did you know that "
"Oh," said he, with u grin, "I heard you
call for pie."
It is almost unnecessttry to state that the
names or the ideal Boston pies are apple,
mince, squash, pumpkin, custard, lemon,
Washington, peach, p.um, cherry, berry,
cream, cranberry, rhubarb, cocoanut and
strawberry shortcake. The latter, I believe,
is not called a pie, because in a pie the upper
and lower crusts are a.Tectionately stuck on
each otheey which is not strictly the case in
strawberry shortcake. Any maker or seller
of pies will tell you th.it tiie sales of apple
pies exceed those of any othor.
Apple pies, when trade of the season's
apple, are a trifle less destructive than any
Miuce pies, when ma le of mince, ar less
harmful than those mince pies not made of
mince; but mince or no mince, they do more
tlunking for a man ttan any other kind of
pie, and oro therefore tiio intellectual pie par
Squash and mince pic are very inoffensive
wnen eaten without cnist. The same thing
is true of custard pio. Yet the characteris
tic traits of tho eggs m ids in making these
pies may modify this st itement somewhat.
The lemon pie is the favorite with young
housekeepers. Newly married men are
specially warned aguiu: t this pio.
Washington pie, whe i not made too high,
can be taken In by the ordinary mouth.
Otherwise it must be wall jammed. A friend
of mine says that this pie was named after
the great George, because ho was very fond
of It. This conflicts wUh the popular theory
which assigns cherry ie the Urst place in
ueorge a menu.
Peaob pie, if fairly fi ee from stones, can be

FROM BOSTON T3 PATAGONIA.
"How many pies are eaten in Boston dur
ing one yearr I asked a well known baker
the other day.
"I have made a very interesting calcula
tion," was the reply, "t nd know that it will
make you smile. I calculate that there are
25,000,000 pies eaten in this city during one
year. Supposing those pies to be sold far ten
cents each, which u a low estimate, and you
have $3,500,000. Matin? another calculation,
1 find that there are ov sr 3,051 miles of plea
mado In Boston in one ; ear. In other words,
if the pies made in Ba ton during the year
1888 were placed one after another they
would reach from Bost m to St. George's bay,
Patagonia; or in a nor h westerly direction to
the west coast of Alaska, near Behring's
strait; or changing tie direction again, to
Constantinople, or again, to Loango, in Af
rica, or to the Baltic ne, or to west Egypt,
or the Gulf of Gulnm., and add those pies
made in CbeUea for the same period and the
line would reach to Babylon, or to the
Society uJauds, in tba Pacific. There are
some horses who will r -fuse to go even when
a bundle of hay is mov.-d at a distance from
them. But you hold a quarter of pie before
a well developed boy and he will run bis
shoes off. I have heard of a boy who brought
home a 'good' from s bool every day for a
year, rewivtng a section of pie for each
'good.' The boy dil uot live to attend

CLERKS AND THEIR WORK.
Their Community of Interest Limited.
Home of Their Difficulties.
"To speak of clerks in a general way at
though there were much or anything in com
mon among them In point of work, require
ments, interests and the like, would be utterly
wrong," said one of a number of employes,
representing different kinds of establishments,
when questioned about their calling. "Th
members of the various crafts have a much
greater equality of work, a much stronger
bond of union, and less st riking differences oi
social standing than we. The most casual
observer can readily understand that, when
the kinds of goods handled vary from Jewelry
to hardware, from books to junk supplies,
from silks and laces to meat and groceries,
and that different types of character, dress
and mauuers are practically necessitated by
different kinds of business, there can be nc
unanimity of interest among us save only the
dollars and cents we get out of our work. W
have a calling merely in the sense that we ar
instruments of transfer between widely dif
ferent classes of proprietors and patrons.
Hence our cliques, in so far as we have any,
are mostly of personal friendships and limited
to the employes of a single store.
"A peculiar feature of clerk life is that wt
naturally grade off by steps, according to th
kind of store we are in, from easy, semi-professional
positions to the positions of ordinary
laborers. Apart from a few stores where
some special skill or aptitude is necessary, 1
think that the annoyances incident upon
clerking lessen and the pay improves as the
work required becomes more laborious.
This, or course, is easily explainable. Thf
annoyances spring largely from people's uu
certainties and whims, and these crop out
more in matters of taste, dress and the lux
uries of life than in the necessities. It is alsc
observable that employes gravitate toward
easy places and thus "lessen the demand irj
"People rarely go into a grocery, a hard
ware store or a wholesale house without
wanting to buy, and they usually know what
they want. The work done by the employe?
of such stores is usually hard, but it almost
invariably result in a sale and is not attended
by the endless answering of questions and
taking down of goods so noticeable in 60me
other kinds of stores. In other words, the
work all counta, and when nothing is actually
wanted the clerk is not needlessly kept busy.
In many stores, like dry goods, millinery and
fancy goods establishments, probably nine
tenths of the people who enter don't know
just what they want, and the clerk has tc
help them decide, and probably half of those
who pester the clerks dont want to buy at
all. Still they cause as much trouble and
work and consume as much time as custom
ers who buy freely and thus help salesmen tc
make a good record for efficiency. I have
known people to go into a furniture store oi
a carpet house and kill time simply from the
desire to see pretty things they can't and
don't mean to purchase.
"Then, again, in some kinds of stores there
is less chance for trouble and annoyance tc
clarks from people's bringing back good;
soiled or otherwise damaged and asserting
that they were so when delivered. Few peo
ple, perhajs, realize tho amount of confusion
and trouble to us resulting from these prac
tices of imposition on the part of the curioui
or unscrupulous, and 1 should advise those
Intending to take up clerking as a businesi
to shun the stores of pretty things and nice
surroundings and choose the stores when
necessaries of life are sold and people whe
oome in mean business.
"Class of patronage, too, makes all the dif
ference in the world with us. The more
transient the custom the more trouble we ex
perience. There are many stores which cer
tain families always patronize. The clerk:
soon become acquainted with thorn, know
their whims or tastes, aud how to pleaje them.
Then the worst part of our experience It
over. The same old course of feeling one'i
way, or catering to foibles, of making mis
takes, and the like, has to be gone through
with almost every purchaser at a store whose
trade in largely transient. Chicago News.

The object of a New England town meet
ing was, as written in the old time warrants,
"to know the Town's Mind." Some time be
fore the day of assembling the three select
men, annually chosen to direct affairs, held a
session at the tavern, where, aided by the
town clerk, they prepared business for th
town meeting, and nominated town officer
They offered a variety of subjects to the
"Town's Mind," which, after consideration
and much talking, decided "whether it wat
for doing this, or for doing that, or for doing
The frequent disagreements and wrangling
in the efforts to discover the "Town's Mind'
caused, in 1715, the enaotment of a law civ

as the law recited, "by reason of the dis
orderly carr ge of some persons in said meet

Nothing Lost in Paris,
The Revue dee Deux Mondes has some cur
ous statements respecting the food consump
tion of Paris. In the large lyceums and schools,
boys are generally very wasteful; they will
throw away half the broad they get for lunch,
tread upon it, kick it into the gutter, ink it,
eta None of these fragments are lost. The
servants sell them to certain dealers who are
called "boulangers en vieux," and turn their
acquisition to good account They first pick
out all the tolerable pieces, which they heat
in an oven and then rasp clean. Thus pre
pared, these bits reappear in the market in
the shape of toast for soup. Most of the
"coutons," cut Into lozenges and served on
the tables of the rich, with spinach, have no
other origin. As for the dirty crumbs and
refuse left after the picking, they are pounded
in a mortar and sold to butchers as "chaptv
lure," with which they cover their cutlets
and knuckles of ham. The really filthy re
mainder, which is too bod even for "chape
lnre," Is blackened over a fire, pounded, aiid
then mixed up with honey aromatized with a
few drops of essence of peppermint. This it
sold as an opiate for the toothache. Americas

a number of years I have suffered untold
agony from the effects of blood poison.
I had my case treated by several proinU
ncnt physicians, but received but little, if
any relief. I resorted to all sorts of pat
ent medicines, spending a large amount
of money,- but yet getting no better. My
attention was attracted by tbe cures said
to have been affected by B. B. B., and
commenced taking it merely as an exper
iment, having but little faith in tho re

to the excellent Qualities of B. B. B. I
cannot commend it too highly ,to those
