MRS. FRANK LESLIE WRITES O"
Some Astnnishine; Farts Abont These
'Strange Scavengers of the Streets of the
Great French Capital 1 belr Organisa
tion and Tlielr Work.
M. RoulT, a dealer in diamonds, lost a fine,
large pearl, weighing 125 grains and valued
at $8,000. He immediately put posters tip on
all the walls if Paris offering a handsome re
ward for its rvoovery. Several weeks elasnl.
when a poor wVmian called on the commissary
of police in the Rue Mont mart re and handed
the lost pearl to that official. Her nnme was
Gautier. She was a cbiffomilere, or. female
ragpicker, by trade, and had found the pearl
in a heap of rubbish in the Rue Lnflitte. She
lived in a small wooden shanty in the Rue du
Ruisseau, a poorly tenanted street belonging
to a quarter known as Lies Grandeg Carrieres,
so limned from the "large quarries" on the
northern slopes f Montmartre, where the
city formerly got much ,its fine limestone
Tho new law that forbids housekeepers
placing their rubbish in the streets overnight
has been a sad blow to the corporation to
which this ioor, honest woman belongs.
Some compensation has, it is true, heen of
fered them by the tolerance of the police,
who close their eyes to the infringement of
the regulations in the narrow streets which
are lined with shops and warehouses. They
have each their own concierge, who rniite
them to forage at daybreak among the rub
bish brought down by the servants from up
stairs. They have a longer day's Work now. For
merly rliey started out at 10 at night, and at
4 or 5 in the morning, wheu the carts made
their rounds, they bad disappeared from the
streets. Now they must remain until the
scavengers appear on the scene, or at least
until the boxes of rubbish have been emptied
into the common bin placed on the edge of
the curb by each concierge. v
They have the work of sorting to do w hen
they get taok from their early morning task
of collecting the refuse. Home sell it to a
boss or trieur (sorter), as he is called, who
stays at home and does nothing elso. He sits
in his room like a gentleman, and there quiet
ly assembles, examines and separates the dif
ferent articles picked up by his work people.
He then sells the material to buyers of vari
ous sorts. . .
The business is anything but a lucrative
one. Parisians, however, throw away every
year more than 3M0.000 tons t.f stuff, which
the ragpickers collect and sell for upward of
25,000,000 francs, or nearly 5,000,000. The
daily returns amount in all to more than 70,
000 francs ($14,000), but there are 40,000 men
and women to share the sum between them,
so that each gets an average of 1 franc 75
centimes, or less than S5 cents. Two hundred
pounds of waste pajier cannot be wild for
more than a couple of francs, woolen rags
are only worth 5 cents a pound, cotton S
cents, and bones at best fetch 1 franc S5 cen
times, or 87 cents, per hundred weight.
A man working steadily all night for they
still ply their trade on a small scale, despite
the edict of the prefect may earn, if be has
a fair atnouut of good fortune, from forty to
sixty cents, but not more. A silver spoon
does occasionally turn up in the rubbish, but
a pearl of purest orient hue well, so to
speak, never. Besides, every member of the
corporation of ragpickers is bound under
severe penalties to deposit auy valuable he
may find at the nearest police office. Each
baa a card or ticket with a number inscribed,
and a number corresponding with that on
the card is fastened to the botte or basket.
Ragpickers, moreover, have always been
noted for their industry and honesty.
The "new law" I have alluded to was a de
cree enacted by M. Poubolle, prefect of the
Seine, requiring every concierge to proviile
a box for the rubbish of the tenants, and to
have it ready for the dust carts on their
morning rounds, it came into force Jan 15,
18S4. The evident effect, if not tho object,
of this regulation was to Aeck the chiffon
nier's occupation, and togive the dust con
tractor a monopoly of the refuse. On sani
tary grounds the prefect may hae been
right, but policy required moderation even
in a question where the health of so large a
city as Paris is concerned: The fact of sud
denly reducing so large a crowd of honest
servants to downright lieggary was a mis
take. l'ublic opinion, which in Franco, as in
other countries of a similar high degree of
civilization, is the supreme ruler, spoke up in
favor of the ragpicker and against that
minor sovereign known as the prefect of
the Soino. Many deputies also humanely
joined in the protest, so that the now immor
tal M. I'oulielle was constrained to offer par
tial excuses for his action in the matter, and
promised that the utmost tolerance should tie
exercised by the authorities in behalf of this
particular and as le admitted "most hon
orable" industry. The ragpickers were in
future to be allowed to turu out the new dust
boxes, so as to be able to rake over the con
tents. I will conclude this article about rag
pickers by . relating the story of a poor
woman, Mme. Vanard, who arrived at com
petency by. collecting orange peal, ami
thereby not only helped lierself, but gave
occupation to others. She became a rich
person, a great patroness of art and a regu
lar bubitue of the opera. Her husband was
in business as a distiller of spirits and es
sences, such as are used ly iierf umers and
dealers in liqueurs. She gave bini as much
assistance as she could. He, however, died,
whereujion she tried for some time to carry
on the distillery alone, but without success.
Talking ever matters one day with the
keeper of a restaurant where she used to take
ner dinner; sho was much struck with a re
mark that he made, to the effect that there
was a fortune to be realized by some clever
liersou in the orange and lemon peel which
was daily thrown away by the garcons of
She took the hint and pondered over it
The next thing she did was to sell her stock
in trade and become a sort of amateur chif
founiere, with this difference that the ob
ject of her quest was orange mid lemon peel
only. She struck up hnsinihs i la t ions with
the limonadiers and the various waiters who
well, you know how mail ait! were glad
to help a young and, as she was theu, good
looking womun. They all, in fact, watched
her vajture in this new line with consider
She had a tiresome task at first, but soon
as she gut to tie known matters went on more
smoothly. The peel idea proved a success.
In fact, she prospered so rapidly that she was
re long able to employ other hands to do the
dirty work of collecting the material from
the streets, as also from the theatres, for the
sweepings of which she contracted.
She presided herself over some thirty young
women in her orange and lemon peel ware
house, all of whom were busily occupied iu
cleaning, pressing and packing the iteel as it
arrived, an operation which the christened
by the word "aeeter." Vast quantities of
zeste were daily sent away to all parU of
France and abroad to form the basis of
Dutch curacoa, orangeade, ritroiisde and the
many kinds of light drinks and aperieuta
which are met with over the-continent. She
has now retired from bumueas, and enjoys
the hard earned fruit of her former "abur.
