LORE ABOUT LEATHER.
Bow the Pclta or Multitude or Auiin:il
Very few people have any idea of
the number of diiTerent animalt
whicH contribute their skins for tho
adornment of pocket books, purses,
etc., and make up the large number
of odds and ends which people find
so useful. Monkeys, piffs, goats,
snakes, lizards, alligators, sheep,
calves, fish, seals, and even birds, all
The great majority of these skins
arc imported, as labor is so cheap
abroad that tho manufacturers here
find that even with the duty of twen
ty per cent on the finished leather
that it is cheaper than importing the
hides without duty, and having them
The one thing of importance in
leather for fancy leather goods is the
grain, says the Trunk and Leather
Heview, which influences the price to
a very great extent. The number
and variety of grains is largo, and
tho diiTerent leathers are classified
when received according to the size
of tho grain under these several head
ing fish, morocco, gros-grain, levant,
turkey, monkey, pig and seal. These
grains arc all. different sizes, tho
monkey bring tho largest, although
the pig and seal are very pronounced.
Tho fish grain is the smallest of
all Iicsides these leathers there are
a great many imitations made
burling, which is a split cowhide, and
a skiver, which is split sheepskin.
But theso can be easily told, as
what is called hand grain is tho
natural grain of the skin touched by
hand, whereas the ordinary imita
tions a 10 embossed by machine.
Several other grains made by ma
chinery on skiver or buffing are
called boarded, being made by a
brass tool which gives fine straight
lines close together; the others show
ing wavy elTccts or water lines on tho
skin and dice grain.
The most expensive leather sells
from $101) to $110 per doxqn skins.
This is the genuine Kussian leather,
which has of late temporarily lost
popularity. Jt is in gros-grain.
Levant f oatskin sells fur SfiO a dozen
6kins. Sr-.si sills fioin V3J to :j0J a
iozen, and pigskins arc sold by the
skin at G.oO or $7 each. Monkey
skins are cheaper, selling at $3 per
skin, but these latter aro hard to pro
cure at any price. They are made
up by only one or two manufacturers
that wo know of in America into the
finest grade of leather novelties of
the imported skins. Wilhthc excep
tion of tho sealskins, which are
tanned in England, nearly all these
skins are tanned in Germany, al

perfumed with oil of birch.
It is a dangerous counterfeit, for
the reason that the ofclor is exactly
tho same, and the appearance and
odor very much so, often puzzling
the untutored buyer. Time, how
ever, destroys the false odor and re
veals the imitation.
The most important thing now,
and the latest, is to have the leather
novelties which women carry to
match their dress in color.
Fortunately, the houses which im
port leathers to this country used to
send samples of leathers to Germany
and elsewhere to match, so as to
6triko the exact color. Now silk,
cotton stuffs, plush, etc., are sent
Lizard skins come largely from
Borneo, as well as Germany.
A I ish That Could Talk.
A natural curiosity captured on the
coast of Africa on May 5, 1854, by
Sig. Cavana and exhibited in all the
great cities of Europe during the
years 1859, 18G0, 18C1 and 1862,
where it was advertised as the
Talking Fish." was ,in reality, a
species of African seal well known to
naturalists on account of its wonder
ful powers of mimicry. This partic
ular animal was about twelve feet in
length and weighed something over
800 pounds. It had a fine, dog-liko
head and large, beautiful black eyes
which seemed to sparkle with intelli
gence, whenever the creature was
spoken to by any one. It was very
docile and when told to dance would
roll over and over in his bathtub,
with first tail and then head above
water, all the time chattering as
though enjoying the sport as much
as tho spectators did. It soon learned
many odd tricks, and. it is claimed,
learned to articulate at, least three
words very plainly, vi: Mamma."
"papa" -John," the last being its
keeper's name. When told to pray it
would clasp its "flippers" in the atti
tude of supplication and put on a
sanctimonious look that could hardly
be equaled by the most pious friar.
Amelia was all sweet, nice and
nervous and she said to her sweet
"You have been so old a friend I
want to tell you something. I am "
and she blushed "I am going to be
"Wait," he cried hoarsely; "before
you go further, hear me. I must say
it, though I have no right now, but I
will have less later. I love you; I
adore you; I have loved you since we
were children together. I do not see
how I can live and see you the wife
of another. Bat, at least, you will
know that I have loved you all these
years, and when you hear the wind
sigh over my distant grave of course
that is nonsense "
"Don't take on so. Joha Henry."
she said, softly, "I'm going to marry
Then the strong man fainted, and,
as she bent over him, a determined
little line showed about her mouth
and she muttered: "I had to do some
thin? to brine him to it."
THE TRUE AMrHCAN GIRL.
f-lie Slej)9 I'rfn It.-.- Hunt, V tl TUtU
in M .iikhi i.
The truest, best and sweetest type
of the American girl of to-day does
not come from the l:o,i'C of wealth;
she steps out of the homo whero ex
ists comforts rather .than luxuries,
writes Edward ISok in the Ladies'
Home Journal. She belongs to the
great middle class that class which
has given us the best American wife
hood; which has given helpmates to
the foremost American men of our
time; which teaches its daughters
the true meaning of love; which
teaches the manners of the drawing
room, but the practical life of tho
kitchen as well; which teaches tho
girls the responsibilities of wife
hood, and the greatness of mother
hood. These girls may not ride in their
carriages, they may not wear the
most expensive gowns, they may even
help a little to increase the family
income, but these self-same girls are
to-day tho bulwark of American so
ciety, not only present, but of( the
future. They represent the Ameri
can home and what is best and truest
in sweet domestic life, and they
make tho best wives fo? our Ameri
can men. I have no patience with
these theories that would see it to
place the averago American girl in
any other position than that which
she occupies, ornaments, and right
fully holds tho foremost in our re
spect, our admiration, and our love.
She is not the society girl of the day,
and she is the better for it.
She knows no superficial life; she
knows only a home where husband,
wife, and children are one in love,
one in thoughts, and one in every
action. She believes no woman to be
so sweet as her mother; no man so
good as her father. She believes
that there are good women and true
men abroad in the world, and, thank
God, her lielie! is right. And that
man will bo happiest who takes such
a girl for his wife.
