Not long since, 1 luui a pleawaut interview
with Mr. James Ea -ly, an old thus Brooklyn
man and a akilled nig carpet weaver.
"No, it's nothing like it used to be," said
Mr. Early, pausing for a timo from bjs labor,
In order to rest and also to answer the many
questions which cur unity proirmted me to auk.
"Forty years ago, when I started for mysolf
in tnis basemout
"Whatl so long tgo rthat!" I interposed.
"Law, yes; that doesn't seotn so long torn

welL It was on Saturday night, Sopfe 11, of
, una when then arm sounded I ran down
to see the fun. It spread like forty, and ba-
lore i got there the whole block back to
Henry street was a roaring, crashing mass of
flames over which the then small force of fire
men had no control whatever. The wind was
blowing up from th 3 river and before the Ore
was checked it had t wept everything clean on
this side of the srnt clear up to Concord
street. They finally stopped its progress by
destroying the two corner buildings at Con
cord street by use of explosives razed thorn
to the ground thus putting so much space be
tween the approaching Ore and the buildings
beyoud that they bud a chance to work and
so got the best of th blazo."
"But it was carpet woaving I was inquiring
about," J ventured.
nOW TH USED TO DO.
"Oh. so it wast 'elL as I said, forty years
ago it was one of the host trades a boy oould
team and there wot good mouoy in it. It's
different now. Yon want to know bow the
thing's douo, eh I"
Mr. Early was seated before a frame work
about Ave feet high, extondiug back about
six feet, with a hug cylinder in under for the
cord. Before him wiiaa swinging wire screen,
called a sley, which by means of a quick Jerk
with the arm force the rags Into position
after they have beet, placed between the rows
of cord which he now explained the use of.
8 wung over a sliaf t, in the center of the frame
back or the sley, wa a twine screen of per
haps fifty or sixty st ands, and In each strand,
between the shaft ai d too floor, was Inserted
a small copper eye. Each side of this screen
counected with a teparata pedal near the
floor, and thus as fir it one pedal was pressed
one row of eyes would be raised, the other
lowered, and as this was released and the
other one pressed thii two rows of ryes would
exchango positions. This was his machine,
devoid of materiaL
"Now, you see," si id Mr. Early, "the twine
Is first put on that cj Under behind there, just
below that stationary beam. That beam,
you see, is on a level with the two rows of
copper eyes hung in he center, and also du
plicated on this side nf the frame. Well, the
twine is separated in x two screens of as many
strands each as there are eyes in the swinging
screen, and being pased over the beam on
that Bide is stretched directly across to this
beam, each of the two horizontal screens
padng through a di ferent row of the swing
ing eyes, and from bore it is passed to the
cloth cylinder by my feet, where the carpet
comes forth completitL Now, as each row of
eyes has a different ncreen of twine paaaing
through it, and as I can reverse the position
of the eyes by a prest urn of the foot, this must
necessarily cross and recross the strands regu
larly as I work the iedals alternately. Seef
Well, I take this shuttle and pa the rag (nar
row strips of cloth ji iued together Into a con
tinuous string) through between the borison
tal screens. Then 1 J ark back this sley, which
has a wire passing between each strand, which
forces the rag firmly into place. This done, I
press the pedal, crossi jg the strands bock as for
as the rag, and then I return the rag between
the screens to the sidj It started from. I con
tinue changing the '- from side to side, each
time croesing the sti ads and keeping the edge
even and firm by mains of the wire sley and
thus, you see, each stnind passes first over, then
under the alternate r3ws of rags, throughout
the entire length of narpet. The stripes are
effected by altera atii j balls of light colored
rags with those of darker and brighter shades.
The twine cylinder uolds 100 vords of cord
and makes nearly as aiany yards of carpet."
"But what do you do when the twine runs
"I never allow it ti. run out. As the ends
come Into sight I In iert a fresh cylinder of
twine and tie each strand of the old lot to
the ends of the new strands and thus make It
an endless roll."

"This frame looks very substantial. Do
they wear out quickly r
"Well, not so very. I bought this second
banded when I started to work forty-four
years ago, and I reckon it's been In use nigh
onto a hundred years and you can see it hasn't
started to wear out yet."
"What is an average days work how
"Ten yorJo is as good as I want to do now,
though when I was younger I could turn out
twelve or fourteen. I used to get from forty
to fifty cents per yard for my work, but now
twenty-eight cents is all 1 charge for my best
grade and I haven't any too much to do even
at that low price. Improvements in machin
ery have brought down the prices of ingrains
and brussels to such it low figure that most
folks have gone back on the good old fash
ioned rag carpet which was so popular In my
time, and there's bare y a living to be squeezed
out of it now. The old fellows who laid the
solid foundation have to stand back and
watch you young one with your modern Im
provements building iiiguer and higher the
monumeui of Improvement over the remains
of the rough but substantial modes of manu
facture which served aur purposes so well." "
Mr. Early ascended the stairway with me
as I was leaving, and, wishing me a cheery
good night, proceeded to close his little shop.

An AinerMM Ornithologist.
America's greatest ornithologist, John
James Audubon, was the son of a French
naval officer, and was born on a Louisiana
plantation on the 4th of May, 1780, and died
in the city of New York on Jan. 87, 185L
His fondness for birds led him to keep many
as pets, and to make drawings which ex
hibited great talent. Ho was on this account
sent to Prance, where he received instruc
tions from the celebrated painter, David.
Returning to America in 1707, he settled on
a farm on the Schuylkill and gave his whole
attention to. the study of birds. Unfortun
ately a large collection of carefully executed
designs were destroyed by mice. In 1810
Audubon removed to Kentucky, where he
met the Scotch ornithologist, Alexander
Wilson, with whom he made his journeys
through tho wilderness. Soon after he visited
the bayous of Florida and gathered with his
rifle and poncil much valuable materiaL
Audubon returned to Philadelphia in 1834 to
arrange for the publication of the fruits of
bis researches, and in ISM went to London
and Paris for the same purpose. Of the 177
subscribers to his work on the "Birds of
America," at $1,000 per copy, one-half was
taken In England and France. He was en
thusiastically received by the leading scien
tists of both countries. A second edition of
this work In seven volumes appeared in 1844.
Audubon's death prevented his completion of
the "Quadrupeds or Amorica," a task, how
ever, which was finished by hia sous. Phila

Talking about negroes reminds me of a
story of a well known traveling man whose
fondness for jokes is liable to get him into
trouble aouio time. When he stops at a
strango hotol he usually place a half dollar
undor his gloss where his sable attendant is
sure to see it. He is bound to get the best at
tendance, and sometimes there seems to be a
mad race among the waiters when their eyes
catch sight of the coin. You enn just im
agine their disgust when be gets through to
see him calmly lift his glass and replace the
half dollar in his pocket.
I sat at tho same table with him in a hotel
once, and for some reason we could not at
tract the attention of a waiter. "IH catch
'em," said he, as he took several dice from his
pocket and shaking them in his hands threw
them on the table. It was hardly a second
before the table was crowded with waiters,
nearly every one in the room being attracted
by tbe sound of the Ivories. "I thought it
would fetch them," said he, as we gave our
order. "It never fails, and I'll guarantee if
we begin shaking 'craps' nobody else In tbe
room can got waited on. Dice have the great
est fascination in the world for a darky."
Emotion ExpreeMMl by the Toes.
I have recently noted a rather amusing de
tail in tho classic costumes worn at the
Comedie Francoise. Most of the actors and
actresses who play the parts of personages of
ancient Greece or Rome do not wear divided
stockings undor their sandals, after the style
in vogue on the stage in England and Amer
ica. With due regard to realism, the sandal
Is laced on the bare foot of the performer,
which is made up accordingly with as much
care as are his or her hands, being whitened
and having tbe nails delicately tinted and the
sides shaded with rouge. It was rather comi
cal to see Mounet-Sully In the scenes of strong
emotion in "CEdlpe Roi" wriggle bis great
toes In accordance with his agitation, and
also to notice how pretty MUo. Dumesnil. in
the role of tbe PricMeas, curled up the ex
tremities of her dainty little feet as site de
scended the staircase. I suppose we all act in
tho same way under similar circumstances,
only not visibly. It is like seeing a young
lady make a courtesy iu a page's dress one
can observe exactly how it is done. Lucy

Indian Italic from Florida.
Dr. Thomas Featherstonhaugh, a grandson
of the famous pioneer geologist, returned
from a visit to Florida, and brought back an
itteresting collection of aborii-aial remains.
He thoroughly examined a mound of damp
sand on the shore of Lake Ipopka, about tbe
geographical center of tie state, and farther
south than any previous researches of the
kind. Tbe mound was fifty feet in diameter
and fourteen feet high, and was covered with
a dense growth of palmetto and other trees.
It was found to be full of fragmentary bones
and pottery, so numerous that Dr. Feather
stonhaugh estimates that there could have
been no less than 400 bodies deposited there.
A few Venetian beads near the top indicated
intrusive burials, but below four feet there
were no evidences of any intercourse with
whites. Four shapely hatchets ware recov
ered, also a charm stone, and numerous
specimens of decorated pottery. The whole
find was presented to Maj. Powell, and by
him turned over to tbe museum. Science.
A I' avion for Clothes Fine.
A Wauwecus hill farmer has a cat that has
developed the same interest in clothes pins
that an ordinary cat takes In mouse catch
ing, and she parades with her captures with
just as much pride. She has long devoted
herself to collecting lost clothes pins, and not
a few pins that were not lost. Strange to
say, she never touches the clothes pins belong
ing to her owner, but Is death on clothes pins
which belong to the neighbors. In tbe past
three mouths she has brought home over
twenty-eight dozen clothes pins, and inquiry
shows that the cat keeps her eye on the place
where the clothes pins are kept. One neigh
bor kept a basket full of pins on a tin roof,
and the rat had to pass over two or three
roofs to get them, but she succeeded in taking
three dozen from the basket before she was
discovered. Norwich Bulletin.

A man In Ansonia, Conn., owns and lives
in a house that overlooks a large clock. Un
fortunately, however, the man thinks he can
not see the clock from bis chamber window,
as a brick chimney intervenes. To obviate
this and have the pleasure of looking to see
the time of day or night while in bed (for the
clock has au illuminated dial) he one 'day
bored a hole through the walls of his bed
room, close to the head of his bed, inserted a
piece of two inch gas pipe with a glass in the
outer end, and now all he has to do is to place
his eye at the inner opening and he has a
focus upon the clock without leaving his bed.
His friends asked him when this was com
pleted why he did not have a clock in bis room
instead of going to so much trouble. And for
the first time it dawned upon him that it
would have been as well Chicago Times.

Meridian, Miss., July 12, 1887. For
a number of years I have suffered untold
agony from the effects ot blood poison.
I bad my case treated by several promi
nent physicians, but received but little, if
any relief. I resorted to all sorts of pat
enl medicines, spending a large amount
of money, but yet getting no betttr. My
attention was attracted by the cures said
to have been affected by R. B. B , and
commenced taking it merely as an cxper
iment, having but little faith in the re
sults. To my utter surprise I soon com
menced to Improve, and deem myself to
day a well and hearty person all owina
to the excellent Qualities of B. B. B. I
cannot commend it too highly to those
suffering from blood poison.

A VALUABLE EXPERIENCE.
One of the most Worthy Men ot the State
gives tbe Publlo the Benefit of some
Truths drawn from his Long Life.
I was Mssing along street in Brooklyn re
cently when I saw a venerable and benevolent
looking- old gentleman assisting a younger and
feettle man along tbe street. The scene was snch
an unusual one, tost I volunteered my help to the
elderly man, sod learned that he was the well
known doctor T. S; Wilcox, and that he was help
ing the roans man, who was a consumptive, to an
institution of which he had eharve. 1 accompa
nied them, asilstingaa best I could, aad asked the
elderly gentleman some questions touching his
past history and his rich experiences of life. He
replied that he ffaoagbt he eonid pat the matter
