SHOP GIRLS OF NEW YORK.
The Slaves of the Factories and the Sewing
The New York Herald for months
has been lifting the corners of the film
sy curtain which hides the hideous
ulcers on the limbs of the Cominon
wealth from the eyes of its heads and
guardians and has attempted to lay
bare to the happy, healthy and wealthy
interested in its welfare the disease and
misery which have been permitted to
become chronic and now threaten to
THE BOX3IAKERS AND) LAUNI)RESSES.
Once more to return to hard facts!
There are tbousands of young girls in
this city who have to live on what they
earn as box makers. Few of the busi
ness men who, comfortably clad in
broadcloth and tine linen, ride down
and up town morning anid evening to
and from their offices and counting
rooms stop ro think of the struggles of
the comely young shop girls they meet
in the cars. Yet these bright eyed,
sweet visaged young persons, notwith.
standing their jaunty airs and dainty
appearance, are the factors in painful
domestic dramas, which would be re
garded as the fiction of an imaginative
writer if put in print tunder the respect
able gold spectacled noses of the sleek
business men aforesaid. Only a small
portion of the shop girls can afford to
ridet the majority have to walk, and
this is because they are as poor as the
proverbial church mouse. Take the
boxmakers.. - How can they afford to
ride in a street car when they cannot
earni more than eighty or ninety cents
in ten hours at the very best of times?
Ordinarly their income is less than
half a dollar a day. On this they have
to live, pay rent and dress themselves.
How can this be done?
Will some rich girl, who pays more
than that every afternoon for her own
personal bodice floral decoration, please
contemplate and endeavor to solve this
Then let her read this little story told
to a Herald represetative by Nellie
Lord wvho livis in (Cherry, beyond
Oliver street. She is twenty-two years
old and attemprts to keep house with
her widowed old met her. who, Nellie
says, is almost paralyzedl and conse
quently unable to work.
"I'm only a poor stick myself,"-said
Nellie, a fewv evenings ago, to the wri
ter, who saw her coing out of a box
factory near the .lowerv, "hut there
are lots of less fortunate girls than I.
'Why? Because I make p)retty fair
wages, and most of them other girls
cannot earn half as muchi."
"What do you call preity fair wages,
Miss Lord?" inouired the writer.
"Sixty-five cents a day; that's near
ly $4 a wveek, vou see-exactly S3 90
whbich is not had, at all events. Some
of the others don't raise half that
amuount. They thiink themselves in
luck wvhen they touch $2 a week. It's
onily the very luckiest of I hem that do.''
"Then you are one of the very lucki

Jessie R-is one of the thousands
of little cash girls who serve in the big
dry goods estalishmnents inl this city,
giving their lit tle all of strength and
ability-often at a fearful cost to health
in after years-for the paltry sumi of
$1 50. $1 75, $2, and in aL fe cases $.) 50
per wveek. Jessie, because an excep
tionally trustworty child and possessed
of an influetial friend, succeeded int
getting a positiont as a cash girl in one of
the largest and best paying dry goods
houses in New York. Here her wages
wer $2 a week from the start, and
after t wo years' service she receives at
the present time $2 50. if she serves a
year longer and gives satisfaction she
will receive S8an pr week, and after
another periodl. if still satisfactory, she
will be considered chgjkAe to the posi
tion of a stock girl, wkio puts the goods
away behind the counters while the
cierks sell, at a salary of $5 per week
After this, if in the meantime she ha
not broken down and become a helples
invalid, she inay be promoted to
clerkship or a cashier's desk, where thi
first year's salary will be $7 per week.
But this is one of the seven leadin=
uptown houses and represents the shol
girl's life at its very best. There is i
far different state of things in the othe:
stores, for cash girls along Fourteenti
street, in the majority of the Sixti
avenue stores and all through Granc
street and the rest of the city get bu
the lower wages of from $1 to $2, o:
possibly $2 2.5.
Nine out of ten of these childrer
must hand their earnings to the mothe1
for the family use, and in many in
stances they form the chief part of the
income. Jessie's mother is a widow
with five children to support. On(
boy and Jessie work as "cashes" anc
bring in $4 a week between chem. The
mother cleans offices at $15 a monti:
and does what laundry work she car
get in the meantime. They live it
the lower part of the city because in n<
other respectable house can they gel
rent so cheap. But it is forty-eigh1
blocks from the store, a distance o
nearly two and a half miles for the tw<
children to walk. They ride once cad
day, which leaves their mother $3 4(
out of the sailary, which, with her owr
earnings, gives her about $650 a week
to pay rent and feed and clothe a fami
ly of six, What the hardships of sue
a life are cannot be known save b3
those who go through its hourly draf
and toil and who feel in all its keennes:
the heavy anxiety of a continual striv.
ing for bread.
Jessie's case is typical; that is to say
there are hundreds, nay thousands, o
children like her employed in great bi(
stores and palaces of merchandis<
throughout the city at wages whict
would startle the political economist it
"listed" for him as samples of the
growth of American industry and pro
gress. Here, again, you find the effec
of extraordinary, and one cannot hell
saying evil immigration. Young Ameri
can girls are crowded cut by the Jew
ish girls of the same classes as thos4
spoken of before. Jessie works fo:
small wages. They work for less, and
moreover, they are deemed very valu
able, because, as a rule, they can tall
German as well as English and can at
tend to two classes of customers.
REAL ESTATE IN GOTHAM.
It Sesll at $115 a Square Foot-Some Bil
[Richard Wheatley, in Harper's Mag
azine for November.]
The total assessed valuation of real es.
tate in the city of New York in 1886 wa.
$1,203,941,065 ; in 1887, of 161,334 plot
of real estate, $1,2.54,491,849-showing
an increase in one year of $50,550,784
But as the assessed is less than two
thirds of the market value, the wholh
is not worth less than two billion dol
ars. Real and personal property with
in the municipality has grown through
out the past decade more than $40,000,
000 per annum. The books in the
office of the Commissioners of Taxes
and Assessments state the amount o:
taxes paid by every real estate holder al
the rate of $2-16-100 on every hundrec
of the assessed valuation. But thes4
figures do not con tsitute a trustworthy
standard in the determination o:
market values, for the asserted reasol
that some assessments in down-towi
wards, are of more than market value
in other wvards of only one-third, othern
one-half,and still others two-thirds. Va
ant lots are assessed at from 29 to 3(
per cent-, improved property from .5(
to 70 per cent., of real value. Inequit
ab.e as the assessments are, it is yet
true, as attirmeid by ex-Mayor Willian
R. Grace, that "upon no species o:
property can taxes be levied with mort
equality as to value, nor with bette3
chances of speedy and equitable collec
tion, than upon real property." "ThE
valuation placed upon personal estatE
from all sources is not more than nine
teen per cent. of the valuation placed
upon real property, and taxes from this
source are most difficult of collection.
Of the annual city budget, which gen
erally amounts to from thirty-one tc
thirty-four millions of dollars, the tax
ation imposed upon real estate supplies
more than four-fifths."'
HOW REA L ESTATE IS MfADE TO SEE1
woRT H 3MORE TH AN IT IS.
Sonme affirm that not more thac
twenty-five per cent. of all the deeds
recorded express the bona fdc conisid
eration paid by each buyer for hih
property. With an eye to future gains
he is wont to insert, or cause to be in
serted, figures other than those whici:
deote the real amount of cash trans
f erred. Unprincipled dealers arrangE
matters so that deeds of property
bought shall express pu rchase-money
at higher sunms than were actually paid,
and cause them to be made out t<
"dumies," who are probably clerks
in their own offices. The dummy ther
borrows money, as much as or more
than what was paid upon the property
and secures the lender by bond and
mortgage. Trhis (lone, he transfers th~
property to the real b.iyer, who putsi
on the market at still higher pricE
loudly asserverates that it worth all b~
asks, aind points to the amount of thE
mortgage in proof of his p)rotestationis
Lenders, he says, do not loan to thE
full value of the s.eurity. This devicE
is often successful.
The price nominally paid for real es
tate in New York is by no means
sure guide to its actual worth. This is
contingent upon locality, imiprove
ments, and residential or commercia
advantages. It depends greatly upot
adventitious circumstances, which th<
intending purchaser should judiciousla
consider upon the spot. Unlike the se
curities manipulated at the Stoek Ex
change, or the merchandise handled b3
the Produce Exchange, it has no tem
porarily fixed or quotable value. Ii
the judgment of dealers it is wortil
what the owner or broker can sell il
for. sunshine and shadow are factor:
or value. Property on the west sid<
of the avenues amt on the south side
of er1">ss streets is worth on the averagt
about twenty-nive per cent, more that
similar property on the opposite sidle
because it is shaded in the afternoons
when womien are wont to make theil
purchases. The northerly side of street:
and the easterly side of avenues are fo:
that reason and for lower rentals pre
ferreJ for domiciles.
REAL ESTATE BY TIlE sQUAICE FOOT
The possibilities of usefulness to
society inherent in land are dependent
on the labors of individuals or of cor
porations. The greater the expendi
ture of labor, the higher is the esti
mate of value. This is the rule of
civilization. Land has reached its
highest price on this side the Atlantic
in the lower wards of New York.
When the Drexei Building, at the
southeast corner of Wall and Broad
streets, was erected, the price per square
foot of the ground whereon it stands
was the highest paid up to that time.
When, in 1882, William H. Vander
bilt gave $40 per square foot for the lots
on Fifth Avenue, Fifty-second and
Fifty-third streets, on which the fam
ily mansions stand, that was the
highest price ever pait for residential
purposes. For store sites on Fifth Ave
nue, $65 per square foot were paid in
March, 1886. 1). O. Mills paid $85 per
square foot for the area occupied by his
magnificent building on Broad Street,
the Astors $100 per square foot for Nos.
S and 10 Broadway, and the Williams
burg Fire-insurance Company $115 per
square foot for the site of their equally
impressive structure on the northeast
corner of Liberty Street and Broad
way. In the neighborhood of the old
Jumel estate prices rose from 75 to 100
per cent. between 1882 and March, 1886.
The ceaseless and costly industry of
the commonwealth will undoubtedly
raise prices to higher figures, and entail
heavier taxes upon owners. These
will continue to profit by the unearned
increment of value ; to sell, mortgage,
donate, and bequeath as usual ; and
how this can or ought to be otherwise,
under the ordinary operation of demand
and supply, and of the natural desire
of possessors to make the best possible
use of their own property, is a ques
tion that the vast majority will not
pause to consider.
SOME BIG TAX-PAYERS IN NEW YORK.
On the 3rd of October, 1887, Receiver
of Taxes George W. McLean received
from the Consolidated Gas Company,
$223,310; estate of W. H. Vanderbilt,
$171,124; New York Central Railroad,
$343,613; Mutual Life-insurance Com
pany, $52,984; Standard Oil Company,
S$28,709; estate of Robert Gxoelet, $107,
396; John Jacob Astor, $235,040; Wil
liam Astor, $170,000. Real ostate
owned by the city rarely conies into
market, nor is it available to any great
extent for the reduction of taxation. In
1871 A. J. Bleecker, A. H. Muller, and
Cortlandt Palmer were appointed by
the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund
to appraise all the real property belong
ing to the city and county of New
York. This they did, including parks,
public buildings, station and engine
houses, wharves, docks, markets, etc.,
and estimated the value of the whole
at 8244,000,000, basing the estimate on
the numiber of lots, 25 by 100 feet, into
which it might be divided. Central
Park, together with Manhattan Square,
on which is the Seventh Regiment
Armory, was appraised at S7:3,275,000;
Madison Square at $2,253,000; Union
Square, S2,290,000; Washington Square,
$2,230,000; and Reservoir Square at $1,
342,000. In 1887 the Commissioners of
Taxes and Assessments estimated the
value of the city property in New York
exempt from taxation at S190,841,130;
that of the United States at $16,.550,000;
-of the churches at $42,230,300; and of
shools, charities, etc., at $34,231,620-a
grand total of $283,853,050.

it would be strange, indeed, if there

constantly improving in his art, and many

when that great artist makes his final

A Pompeian Lady'% Bed-Roon.
[Woman's World for November.]
Entering now in inagination our
lady's own rooms, we perceive at once
that one of her principal interests ai
occupations was the toilet. Though
dress was simple in fashion (consisting
among the higher ranks of a line linen
under-dress, the deiicate fabric being
imported from Egypt, above which
was a long tunic of fine white wool,
reaching below the knee, and confined
at the waist by a girdle), the adjuncts
were numerous and often costly.
Splendid clasps of gold for the out-door
tunic, a long wide miantel, often richly
dyed, one end of which was thrown
gracefully over the shoulder; silken
veils of flimsy texture embroidered
with gold and a profusion of jewelry,
rendered the toilet of our Ponipeian an
intricate and serious business. On the
table lay for choice the earrings and
rings, the bracelets, armlets, and ank
lets, of gold and silver, and precious
stones, in designs of the variety of
which the accompanying illustration
will but give a faint idea. Fine cameos
were usually employed for the rings;
the earrings took the form of hoops of
pearls and other stones, or little figures
in gold, Cupids being a favorite de
sign; and rows of coral and taalaehite,
beetles, and pendants in arabesque
patterns and ornaments in the Etruscan
style, formed the necklaces. The brace
lets were often in the form of serpents
twining many timies round the arm,
or were thick circlets, either plain or
embossed with precious stones or pearls.
There, too, lay boxes for rouge and
other cosmetics, with nuriberless ivory
combs, perforated in graceful patterns,
and small tools, as pinchers, nail-pol
ishers, and the like; numerous vases
and jars for perfume, hairpins twisted
and ornamented in various ways, safety
pins of all sizes, and in all kinds of
metal, from iron to gold; gold ribbon
for girdles or fillers, and nets of the
finest gold thread for head-dresses;
mystic armlets of every sort giving the
finishing touch to the varied collec
Besides the bedsteads and chairs of
bronze, the coverlets of which were
then soft carpets or furs, the room con
taitned finely-chased bronze coffers
and chests of cedar-wood, which held
the robes and valuab,les of our lady;
while ebony boxes, richly carved, were
full of jewelry. In that beauty-loving
age, the woman spent a great deal of
time inl personal adornment; the dark
hair was often bleached or diyed a gol
den color, the eyebrows painted, the
nails polished by the attendant slaves.
who, if our lady happened to be of a
quick temper, probably suffered for any
inadventure under the lash of the
verseer, or received a pric:k from the
long hairpin of her mistress.
Most likely the household r'ffairs of a
Pompeian lady were confined to the
superintendence of her women ia the
spinning-room, or of the attendants of
the children of the house. Sonie lady
landowners may have had to transact
business with their stewards, but be
yond this, they had p)lenty of time for
visiting the baths and theatres, or wvor
shipping in the temnples. The old state
religion bas, at that time, lost its hold
n the public mind, but the worship of
the Egyptian gods had much attraction
for the women, and the time spent at
the Temple of Isis was so exaggerated
by them that resort to the latter was
once forbidden by edict. The Roman
baths, with all their details, have beeni
so often described that we wvill not
touch on them at length. Suffice it to
say that our Pompeian lady had ample
pportunity of enjoying their delights,
and gossiping the. hours away at the
splendid establishments in Pompeii,
which often served as a place of ap
pointment to meet friends or lovers,
where intrigues could be carried on or
the topics of the day be freely discussed.
Borne thither in her litter, or proceedl
ing on foot, accompanied by her slaves,
our Pomnpeianl spent hours in the wo

A man in North Georgia uses a

If You Are Sick
With lIeadache, Neura'gia, Rheumatism Dyspep

Constipation, Femnale Troubles, Fever and Ague,
Sleeplessness, Partial Paralysis, or Nervous Pros

cured. In each of these the cause is mental or
physical overwork, anxiety, exposure or malaria,
the effect of which is to weaken the nervous sys

the c.wsE with that great Nerve Tonic, and the
