5UNDRED YEARS AGO.
OUR GRANDPARENTS LIVED,
WORKED AND DRESSED.
f : .
Fashions Did Kot Change in Those Days
so Often m They Do Saw When th
Women Really Made Their Own Clothe.
Henry Clay's Jeans Breeches.
The costume of the pioneer belle was not
elaborate, and when she left the parental
cabin for a home of her own no Saratoga
trunks were required for her wardrobe. Bhe
, wore the larger portion of it. In later years
we read that Henry Clay used to drive to
Washington city in his family carriage with
his wife and daughter, and take their ward
robe with them for a winter's stay at the na
tional capital. Saw the luggage of such a
party would half 1111 a baggage car.
In this day of diversified industry, when one
labor saviug invention crowds another off
the stage in endless and rapid succession, one
eau scarcely comprehend the atient, perse
vering effort required of the pioneer house
wife in the discharge of the ordinary duties
of the cabin. The lack of costly furniture,
handsome carpets, fragile bric-a-brac and
expensive hangings did not lessen her care.
Bhe was both mistress ami servant, matron
and nurse, housekeeper and charwoman,
dairymaid and cook. Neatness was not less
demanded of her than of the modern house
wife, and her split broom and scrub brush
found ample service in keeping floor and fur
niture clean and white.
The labor was pretty well divided let ween
the sexes. "The men," the early writers tell
us, "hunted and brought in the meat; they
planted, plowed and gathered the corn,
grinding it into meal at a band mill or
pounding it into hominy in the mortar,
which was occasionally the work of either or
the joint labor of both." But with these
offices the labor of tho women was scarcely
begun. Custom and necessity united to lay
upon her the care of providing for every
household need that the rude agriculture of
the period did not supply, and in all the mul
tifarious duties which engaged her skill and
energy she tailored unaided by labor saving
machinery. And so she milked the cows in
all weather, while sturdy men and tioys
watched an operation too effeminate to etilist
their services. She churned the butter, car
ried the tuls to a spring a quarter or half
mile from the cabin, or caught raiu water iu
troughs and barrels from the eaves for the
"washing;" made her own soap; washed,
picked, carded and dyed the wool: pulled.
broke and hackled the flax; spun tho thread
and wove the cloth; contrived and made the
garments; reared her children, nursed the
sick, sympathized with the distressed, and en
cou raged the disheartened laborer at h
side. In all this, and above it all, woman
was the tutelary saint of the frontier.
The first cloth made in Kentucky was
I77U, by the wife of William I'oogue, who
that year joined tho settlement at llarrods-
burg. She brought with her the first spin
mug wheel evereen west of the mountains,
and she spun thread from the lint of the net
tle, which grew abundantly in the new coun
try, and upon a rude loom contrived by her
husband she worked it into cloth. This she
called linen, but by adding a "filling" spun
from buffalo wool sho made a cloth she
called liusey woolaey. Considerable of stir
cloth was made here, before the introduction
of sheep, and before the iwot.de began to cul
tivate nax and hemp.
These are no fancy sketches drawn from
romantic- imagination, out truo ot pioneer
lite, and the world is not half a century olde
since much or tbat descrilKxl above could
daily witnessed in Kentucky.
A, DUEL OVER JEANS.
The spinning wheel, the loom uml the rei
have disappeared, except as relics. (It
fashionable now to have our grandmothers
old wheels, bedecked with riblious ami gew
gaws, conspicuously displayed in our ikh Ioi
and libraries.) A suitof country brown join
is never seen now, except when the revenue
officers bring in a squad of moonshiners from
the mountains. But following tho ieriod
buckskin breeches every man wore home
made jeans and linens. I have seen the iaU
Governor John L. Helm on public occasions.
where he took a conspicuous part, drexed iu
a suit ot jeans.
The ceierated duel between Henry Clav
and Humphrey Marshall in IMi? grew out of
Marshall s sarcastic criticism of CUy for wear
log jeans clothes. Alarshull was an aristii-
crat socially and a federalist politically, ii
believed Clay s republican ideas and ple
beian tastes aUected to give hiui presti
with the people, and he gave bis "stinging
pen ana bitter tongue" full swing at liim
until Clay could no longer endure his biting
sarcasm, and be challenged hi in. The result
of the duel was nothing more serious, said
Col. Sam Major, writing of the ufTair, than
"a slight wound to Mr. Clay's jeaus breeches
inflicted by Marshall's Muiitou."
One of the early writers, describing the
times iu the first quarter of tho present cen
wiry, says: -r asuiouuuie young men wore
tight bodied, swallow tailed coats, with lar;
high collars, but! or white vests, stockinet
pants, high top boots, wrinkled or fair, with
tassel iu front, high short collurs reaching
to the ears, and a few wore ruffles. Gold
watches were uncommon, but a bull's eye
with a metallic fori chain, seal and key was
usually sported. The fashions didn't change
then as often as they do now. 1 he same lion
net or hat was worn for years. Men wore
their hats eight or ten years, and yet, not
half worn out, would barter them to the hat
tar in part pay for a new one, of the latest
"The same bonnet was worn as long, the
trimming pernaps cuangeii every two or
three years. Calico was the prevailing ma
terial lor laoies line ill-esses, such as were
worn iu making calls, attending religious
meetings or evening parti.. The more el
dxly wore Ixiniba.ine. Six yanU were
amply sufficient for a pattern. An article
called homespun wool, or col ton mid wool,
was usually worn about the house when en
gaged in ordinary domestic duties. There
. were social parties iu those days, but there
was some regard paid to proper hours for
meeting and dispersing. The coniaiiy as
sembled at early caudle lighting an went
home at reasonable bedtime, and had no ice
jreaui or oyster suppers." W. H. J'vrrine in
.Louisville Courier ,'ournal.
The Benign Witchery of Candle Light.
Their are so many women who have passed
their first youth who appear at the balls in
New York and receive the devoted attention
of men for whom they must entertain a most
grandmotherly interest, that the question of
light has become a most iuiMirtaut one, so
lutes foxy caterers to the female complexion
have taken a leaf out of French hooks and
lighted their rooms with caudles, the silver
candelabra being set in the walls to that the
light fails from the side, not above, while
pretty little fluted petticoats of rose silk
shad the colored candles. A sido light, es
pecially if it la rose tinted, takes ten years
from a woman s age. fio wonder we are iu
favor of abolishing the deadly electric lam;
and tne naming gas, if wax candles are such
thieves ot time. Hartford Cnnrant.

of a Vnton , Addrcwsert by Cinntave
The Moline "carpenters had a mas
meeting at Turner ball, tbat city, Thurs
day evening. The meeting was called to
order by Bernard Anderson, who intro
duced Gas Klotz. of the Rock Island
union. Mr. Klotz proceeded to give an
account of the benefits belonging to the
United Brotherhood of Carpenters and
Joiners. He stated that the order had a
membership of 70,000. representing
about 500 unions. There were two
classes of members the beneficial and
non-beneficial, the former consisting of
all who could command average wages,
and were less than fifty years of age;
while the latter were older but less skill
ful mechanics. The benefits consisted of
pecuniary assistance during sickneES or
strikes. In addition to the weeklv
benefits at the death of a member
his family receives $200, and in the
case of the death of a metawier. his wife
receives $50. The speaker also gave
the experience of the Rock Island anion,
oacplaining that a similar orgxttization
was necessary in Moline to protect the
one in Rock Island, from the mere fact
that Moline carpenUrs compete with
Rock Island workmen, making a strike
on the part of latter impracticable.
It was suggested that temporary of
ficers be elected after which names would
lie taken of those who formed the move
ment of organizing the Moline branch,
which resulted in the election of Mr,
William Ransom, chairman, and Bernard
The roll for future membership in the
incipient union was then started. Sev
eral names were obtained, but the DS-
pateh stys the move did not meet with
the enthusiasm that it might have done.
The Whistlr Xsnwniice Again.
Kock Island, June 2S.-The extent
to wnicn the whistle nuisance is
inflicted on our citizens is becoming
intolerable, especially in the vicinity
of some of the mills and factories.
It is bad enough at any season of the
year, but during these hot nights
when under the most favorable circum
stances one cannot obtain the needid
amount of sleep, it becomes well uigh un
bearable, to be roused at 5.30 and
o'clock, and your nerves set tingling by
the whistle chorus. 1 here seems to be
nenaisn delight manuesteu in the viemg
with each other to arouse the whole city.
I o those whose nerves are weak aod to
the sick, it is simply torture. I feel sure
that if the proprietors of these whistles
fully realized the extent of this nuisance
it would be stopped. There is scarcely a
person who would not siin a petition to
our council for its abatement. A hint to
the wise should be suflicient without such
an expedient. All have rights others are
bound to respect, and the Question now
is, are not our citizens being imposed
upon? It certainly seems as though the
C and 7 o'clock whistle of the waterworks
should be suflicient for all practical pur
loses. A Manufacturer.

Broke the Bell.
In ttr- days of the chestnut bell a lot
oi us wore waiting at Trenton fur the:
Long Branch, train, and one of the men
began telling about his experience on a
wrecked vessel in mid Atlantic. Near
by, on a passenger's trunk, sat t. pale
faced, weary eyed young man of t wenty
summers, who was going down i:o the
Branch with his ma. He wore a cbartnut
bell, and this was perhaps the firs; time
he had had a chance to ring it The
gentleman was proceeding with hi story
when ting-a-ling! went the bet. He
6topped and looked around, and then
continued, but after half a minute the
young man belled him up again. The
man looked annoyed but went or , and
during the quarter of an hour hs was
talking that bell rang about fifteen times.
When he had finished he looked over to
the wearv yotuig man and asked:
"What is that bell forr
"Chestnuts," was the reply.
"How do yon mean?"
"Why, you know, when you hear any
thing old you ting-a-ling on the bell."
"Oh, you do. I guess I'll try it once."
He got up, shook the yonng man out of
his coat and collar at the first shai e, and
then whirled him around, endid h m up,
and gave him a toss over a heap of bag
gage. The bell boy got np covere 1 with
dust and a wreck, the bell broken by the
hhock and Ins collar banging by oi e end,
and as be disapieared into the ladies'
room we heard his mother exclaim:
"Whv, darling, didn't I warn vou to
look out for the locomotive?"
And the man who had told the story
"Best to take such cases at the start
and administer strong niedicint . He
might have rung that bell on sorrrpbody
who'd have got mad and damage 1 him
beyond repair." New ork Sun.
