Everything regarding Chicago will be

it is therefore natural that the varied

older Astor to skin umskrats and swap
orass collar bnttous to the Indians for
beaver skins if the uoble red man suffered
for collar buttons. What I dislike is for
the descendant of Mr. Astor to cultivate
such a bis robust and maliirnant case of
hauteur. He visited Chicago some time
ago and Ktutd in an interview, which he
had arriiiiifi-il for as soon as he could at

man who answers the door Ixjll and does
nothing else hardly. That may lie, bat
it is only a few brief autumns since the
brave and stnrdv mothor i.ftln. ar.,r
race came around from the spring house
to greet the guest in her stocking feet,
and the greet i tig was none the less cordial
eyether for a that and a' that. We
should not be held responsible for the
errors ana acquired snobbery of our
grandchildren. From the deep recesses
of the tinhorn future there may come
some day a great-grandchild who will
inherit my wealth and name, and while

his ancestors had Wn so generously
and so hospitably treated vears before
and when ho got home to England or

ten mm how his reuneil natnro was
shocked all the time he was awav.
Glancing hastily from Mr. Astor to the
Chicago stock yards, 1 will say that ftw
realize, or can do so. the magnitude of
mis one institution or Chicago. We can
hardly imagine 1.2!K wres of ground
covered with moat, to speak plainly;
1.2H0 acres almost covered at leiutt with
the business of converting live stock into
ioou rur man. I had never before vis
ited this institution, and so I went there
all dressed up, in order to make au im
pression on the working classes.
Shortly after mv arrival it c;&me on fne
to rain, and having came on for that
purpose it removed its coat, suspenders
ami nat, and rained more earnestly and
more rociierousiy man anywhere else
ever saw it outside of Ireland. I wore
frock coat, patent leather shoes and
mile hat. After a while the mud, gore and
hair, to say nothing of lard and dinar
ranged liver, gave me a blase look that
attracted attention when I got back on
State street. One man whom I did not
know axked me if there had been any
wouuie or a stnito at the stock yards.
The visitor is apt to go firet to the as
aossinatiiig department. I remember
imtchenng day at home when I was
wy. It was different from this. We
had generally aimnt three shotes to kill
and we waited most always until the
weather was so cold that wo could not
flow. Then wo butchered. We began
bont daylight to heat water for scald
ing purjMweH. Then we climbed the ftnee
and liegan a series of uncalled for yet
outer ami personal attacks on the elder
maternal hog, while her ear piercing
Miueals rent the sky and her hot blood
lettered our neat little overalls. All
day we alternately scorched ourselves or
froze to deuth, and at night three flabby,
waxeu remains, Tfectly devoid of bow
cla of compassion or other viscera, pried
open so that the Nirvemlier wind could
sough through thdir pnlselrt forma or
dally with their ,nt lard through the
long and frijrid hours, hung in a row.
Then came the days when all through the
b ar old homestead the smell of nice hot
iard sought, out every corner and even
pervaded the beautiful brown linen Sab
bath school (.uit, which caught and re
tained the ravishing fragrance for years

haps. However, I began "the most elab
rat preparations and tried to nerve
myself up to it by frequent recourse to
hard cider, for I had never personally
shed innocent blood before. The pig
would probably weigh about 160 pounds,
and was not fierce nntil he found ont
that I seemed set on mutilating him
without any apparent cause. Then he
broke down the fence, ate np a small
goddess of liberty which I bad once had
tattooed on my leg, so that I could be

The animal wanderejf away into a
corn field, and we tracked him by his
bloody footsteps. We overtook him
along toward noon and my younger
brother held him down while I made an
incision in the neck which proved fatal.
As we started, drag the animal toward
home bis JScad feU off. I state this in
Order ttMlliow that Kineei-ifv
J.lifof purpose had already begun to
snow inemseives even at this early age.
After some delay we succeeded in re
moving the bristles, also some of the
pelt, and I began the delicate operation
of prying into and exposing the animal's
complex works. I guess it would not be
best to descritie this, for it givs me
great pain to recall it. I only know that
I cannot see yet what he had ever done
with so many of them or who could have
ever arranged such a large assortment in
such a little space. They came pouring
out like a cataract of new aud strange
vitals with crotcheted borders on them,
and altogether I felt saddened and de
pressed. I went over to a neighbor and
got him to come and assist me. I told
him I had operated once or twice on
hen, but a hen travels light. She does
not overburden herself with vitals that
way. Just give a lien two or three little
fixings of that kind and she will go
around perfectly contented. But it is
not so with a hog. I never saw a hog
that knew when he had enough of any
thing. In the early days they used to assess
people here at the stock yards for beer
nioney, and then if they did not get it
they would pelt the visitor with frag
ments of liver and such little testi
monials of respect as that. So it was a
custom even among teuijierance rieople
to give them the money. It was so until
oneday an English capitalist who owned
a large share of one packing house got a
steer's lung down She back of his neck
and eighteen feet of sausage wound
around his silk hat, and he s(M,ke of it in
terms of resentment to the suieriiit-iiil-ent.
Then it was changed.

One house takes the livw, of 2,400 pigs
per day, and they are chilled and ready
for the table by night. Mr. Armour per

not in a spirit of revenge, but in order
to improve the condition of mankind and
keep the rede and disagreeable wolf
