Either the English sab-mao is an abnor
mally laciless iiidivi.iiuil or he has been
accustomed lo generations of shoppers
whose menial capacity has been of the
smallest, for he invariably treats one as
though one were an idiot of the very first
water. As 1 have said, unless the cus
tomer knows exactly what she wants and
asks for it in language understood by this
popular people, she runs a very slim chance
of getting anythingatall. Thus, she must
lot ask for "muslin," but. for "long cloth,"
while if she wants some "Swiss" she must
ask to be shown "muslin.'' If she wants
some "calico" for her servants' dresses she
must not ask for that, but for "print."
"Calico." on the other hand, must be
asked for if one wants some cotton or twill
sheeting. She must not speak of a "spool
of cotton" unless she wain s to be greeted
with the stony stare of vacuous ignorance,
but for a "reel of thread," and then it may
lie placed before her with the smirking
(pu-ry, "And the nex' thing, midim!" for it
may be noted that salesmen and sales
women who, by the way.ijiuve not yet at
tained the doubtful elevation of our sales
"ladies" and "gent leinen" "midim" their
feminine customers lo the verge of exasper
ution. Aulii, if you ask for a pair of
shoes, what in America are kiiou'n as
"lies"' w ill be offered to you, w hile if you
ask for "boots" you may possibly get what
you want, though it is hardly probable.
Tlie English boot is adapted to t he English
foot. "Vou have an Anieric.-tu foot," said
a bootmaker the other day, "and I haven't
a boot iu my shop that will really lit you."
An American woman's only chance of get
ting what she can wear upon her feet iu
this country is lo go to a French shop, and
then she has to pay about 5o percent, more
than in New York.
You must, not ask for a "white skirt,"
but for a "lop petticoat;" a skirt beni is
only used in describing the outer. "mil visi
ble garment, the inner and inure spiritual
affairs are all "petticoat-.'' Similarly if
one speaks of "a waist." as transatlantic
phrase is wont to term the upper portion
of a street or ot her dress, t he ihessmaker
will turn on one with a pitying smile and
remark, "Do you rne.ni a body or a bodice?"
while the American "bodice" is here an
"tiliderwaist." While if a reference is
madeio "Vor-ets" she will correct oue iu
the same tender fashion, "Oh, you mean a
pair of stays." Don't ,-isk for .-i "morning
w rapper" but for a "dressing gow n."
If you want a pair of "rubbers"'toguail
m;;iTis! the 1 ..union sln.-h and mud, don't
try to buy t hem under t hat u.-ime,.but itsk
fur "l i-at's." 'J in- English have a tra
dition l !i:it Americans all refer to the arti
cles as -arum-." and declare that we ordi
narily r.-iiiiest a visitor to "wipe his gums
on the .looruiat," a harmless double en
tendre which affords them the keenest en
joyment. If you want some coarse "Swiss"
with which to make servants' caps you
must know it by the name of "book mus
lin," or you w ill never get it, for, as I have
said, the English salesman never cares to
meet one half way and try to lind out what
thp customer wants.
If one were to ask for "paper muslin"
he would probably have a lit. He only
knows it a.s "glazed cambric"' and resents
any ot her nomenclature. As to things not
essentially feminine, but still in the wom
en's department as purchasing agents,
"bedspreads" are "quilts," even if not
"quilled;" "tidies" are "antimacassars"
and "window shades'' are "blinds,"' wheth
er of the roiler or Venetian order matter
ing not. London Cor. lioston Transcript,
Onoiiiiei.lut ion of Old Chests.
The method of decoration by means of
redhot irons was employed in Great
Pritain -hielly on rypress wood chests
"spruce chests." as they were termed.
Cypress wood was liclicved to preserve
against moth ami cloth clothes, tapes
try curtains, and silks and velvets were
put into! hem. They were much in fashion
in the reign of James I of England and VI
of Snot land, and they are frequently dec
orated with subjects from the hunting
field, sketched in by means of skewers
heated by the lire. The men are dressed
in t he ugly ! ruck hose nf t he period.
It will generally be found that, the orna
mental ion in-aif t he lid of such a spruce
chest, i quite a rich as t hat. ou the front.
The lop of the chest i- always left plain, ns
il, was used as a seat that, is to say. the
outside of ihc lid was findecorated; thein
shie jir -en;- a picture, always in good
p'-e-ervat ion. as ii has lieen thoroughly
protected. As far as t he writer's experi
ence g.- the oak chests were not carved
inside on t iie under part of the lid; this
ileiair.:! ion was used exclusively for the
"s-pnicc i bests." Some of these cypress
chi-is .arc not only long, but deep, and are
formed ol slabs nf beautiful well grown
trees of very considerable age. We have
no reason for supposing that the cypress
wood was not home grown, and it would
slow that very stately and ancient cy
presses must have adorned our old gardens.--

Nitric acid is employed as a solvent for
tin in making dyes; by engravers to etch
copper; in the manufacture of gun cotton;
in the gilding trades, and in preparing the
felt for hats. 'The fumes of it are more ir
ritating to human throats and lungs than
is a red rag to a bull, and they cause no
end of bronchial and catarrhal affections.
The workers in vai ious branches of trade
suffer from the fumes of ammonia. They
cause inflammation uf the eyes and a pe
culiar skin disease, which it has been sug
gested may lie due to the formation of a
soap by the union of the ammonia with the
liquid of the lubricating skin glands. If
that be true every mau could be a per
ambulating soap factory. Men employed
in guano works become deaf, and the skin
of their noses and foreheads is peculiarly
discolored by the ammonia. Their strength
fails, and they suffer from auieiuia. New

A curiouscollect ion of liooks is contained
in the library of Warstentein, near Cassel,
iu Germany. The books appear at first
sight to be logs of wood, but each volume
is really a complete history of the tree it
represents. The back shows the bark, iu
which a small place is cut to write the
scientific and common name as a tit le.
One side shows the tree trunk in its natu
ral state and the other is polished and var
nished. Inside are shown the leaves, fruit,
fiber and insect parasites, to which is add
ed a full description of the tree and its
