German Markets. (f, ((J Sy) r Special Correspondence TitkftATlONAT. Tribune. Berlin, Jail. 2, 1S93. TJ110PE is eating mil lious upon millions or pounds of horse meat every year. Last year in Paris alone some thing like 25,000 horses wore killed to 6upply the demand, and Vi enna consumed over K li iKMOiV? 5'0.000 of Pounds of norso sieans aim i uasit. This city of Berlin is, I am told, eating every day more than 30.000 pounds of horso flesh, and callous of horse- meat soup is flowing down the German throats of some of the poorer classes of this great capi tal as I write. I havo speut several days this week iu moving about among the horse butcher shops, and 1 visited this afternoon the Berlin iiorso sliiugliter-liouse 'where all of the 10,000 liorses eaten here every year are killed. This curious establishment is situated not Terr far from the center of the city, and when I arrived at its doors I found myself confronted with a big sigu which stated that strangers could not, bo admitted to it I rapped on the gate with my stick, and by tbe aid of the clerk of our Cousnl-General at Berlin and a little silver I found that jt opened quite easily. I entered aud found myself in a big barnyard, Eurrouuded by low stables and fenced in at one side with a long one-story building of red brick. At the right of the gate as we went in stood a group of the butchers, their shirt sleeves rolled tip above their elbows, and their brawny arms covered with blood. Each butcher wore an apron of leather, which was one mass of clotted blood, and below their blood-spattered panta loons were heelless slippers which were painted a dark red with the dried blood upon them. One of these murderous-looking men acted as our guide, and we went with him to the slaughter-house. f J -.. . - - homo for fivo okaix'ecnts a trip, work cheaper tlitiu men, and it Thoy do tho is for this rea- tho men son, perhaps, tlmt tffojrnave crowded nnr. of thn ninrGtB.'?1 -- . iirTYfM ... . - . - .

Tlioy are them out wh thus being su House Sausage for Sale. We first entered a long, low room, on the floor of -which iayasplcudid bay horse which had just been killed, and from tho rafters of which hung a score of carcasses of the horses which with his legs quivering and trembling all over. Then an apron of leather a foot square was hung over his oyes. leaving his forehead bare. Now one of tho men pulled his handsome head down, then one of these bloody-armed butchers raised asledge, tho iron hammer of which was as big around as your wrist, and with this he struck tho horso full in tho forehead. Thero was a crash, and the hammer sank into tho brain of the horse, and almost simultaneously with tho sound tho boast dropped to the floor. Tho red blood poured from his nostrils; his fine eyes shono pitoously with pain for a second and thou tho light wont out of them and ho was dead. .Now a second butcher stabbed tho horse's throat and drove the knife down into his heart, and tho blood came forth in great spnrts, and as it foil it was caught in these big, low, square drying-paus and carried oiT to the dryhouso. Each horso furnishes about four gallons of blood, and tho last of this was churned out of tho horse's carcass by tho butcher jumping up and down upon it with his feet. As soon as tho blood was out of the horso it was turned upon its back, and the dressing from this time on until it was ready for salo to the retail butch ers was much the same as tho preparation of a beef after killing for tho American market. There are less than a hundred butcher shops r Destined Fort Slaughtee. had been slaughtered that morning. They hung like beeves, with their heads downward, sus pended from the rafters by their hind lens, and from the necks of some of them the blood still dripped down upon the concrete floor and ran into a hole covered by a grating toward which the floor sloped. On the side of the door as wo went in I saw a great pile of horses' hoofs, with tho iron shoes Btill on them, and iu another part of the room were piles of horses' skins still steaming, and bags of horses' tails which had been cut off and laid away for sale. Upon the skinned animals which hung from the rafters I saw a round blue stamp in many places, and the butcher told me that this was the mark which had been put on them by the doctor who had inspected them, and that without this stamp the meat could not be sold. Every cut that goes into the market has to have this stamp, and one of the finest animals hanging in the room I found had been condemned by the doctors as unhealthy, and .though I could see no difference in it from any of the others it was not to be sold, and it was for tbe manure pile and not the dinner-table. This room was, 1 judge, at least 100 feet long, and it vras filled with carcasses. Have you ever Eeea a piece of horse meat? It looks for all the world like venison, and it is redder than iecf,and tastes much like venison. The horses I saw to-day were generally fat, and I am told that the Germans sometimes fat ten up their horses prior to bringing them to the bufehers. A fat horse will bring a higher J)rice than a lean one, and this butcher shop betters the condition of the old horses of Berlin. Before it was established men worked their horses to death, and an old plug was fed as little as possible and was worked till he dropped. Nowjt pays to keep them in bettor Condition, and when they get too old to work they are brought here. Lame and unsound horses are often brought as soon as they become injured, and many of the horses killed are young and fat. They bring all the way from $10 to $30 apiece, and thi6 sl&ughtcr-house buys them, and sells them after they are killed to the retail butchers. Every part of tho horse is utilized. Tho Bkius bring about$3 apiece, and are tanned for leather. They make the finest of shoolcather, I am told, and much of the leather sold as por poise hide is in reality horse hide. The tail is sold with tho hide, hut tho mano and fetlocks aro cut off and sold as hair for25 cents a pound, and the bones go to the fertilizing establish ment, and tho waste boues of each horse brings 50 cents. Every drop of the blood is saved. I visited a Wood-drying room, where thero were hundreds of pans of blood standing on the shelves of an evaporator, much like that used for the drying of fruit in the United Plates. Our bloody guide told us that a large part of the blood was used for the making of buttons, and that the albu men in it was taken out and 6old for use iu tho making of photographs. Tho rest goes for tho making of lime and for manure, and even tho hoofs of the horses are of value. Their shoes are taken off, barreled up, and shipned out to China, where they bring a big price, and where they are used, among other things, for tho making of razors, and many a Chineso head is shaved with the same metal that once protected German horse's hoof. in Berlin which sell nothing but horse meat, while there aro at least 200 in Paris. The law provides that such shops hore must bo known as horso butcheries, and thoy advertise their horse meat, so there is little danger of your eating horse meat here without knowing it. I visited one of these shop3 yesterday. The sign "Bos3 Schlatere" is over tho door, and the shop itself is like many of the butcher shops of Berlin in a cellar. Imagine a room about 12 feet square, with a low white ceiling and white walls. Across tho front of it, near tho door, there is a counter of wood, and on this lies steaks and roasts of dark-red meat Thoy look like" beef, but they are far redder, and whero the cut has been exposed to the air for some time the meat is almost black. From tho -walls hang horses' sides half cut up, and from the ceiling aresuspeuded on hooks horses' hams smoked aud dried. At one sido thero is a long string of littlo horse sausages, as black as ink and speckled with bits of white fat. Thoy are put up in skins of about the diameter of the ordinary pork sausage and of tho shape and length of a horseshoe. Each weighs a pound, and tho bare-armed butcher behind the counter tells me they are worth 12 cents a pound. 1 inquire the prices of other kinds of meats, aud ho tells me I cau have a line cut from tho loin for 30 pfennigs, or six cents, and that I cau havo a hashed-up Hamburg steak for fivo cents. On tho counter lies a plate of yellow horse fat. and I ask what this is good for, when the man's wife, whose cheeks aro fut aud rosy on a diet of horse meat, tells mo it is used by the poorer classes for cooking butter; that it is as good as goose grease forsick children, and that if spread over your person-will make you fat and strong. She tells mo she sells horse oil in bottles for the rheumatism. She shows mo her children, who are ravcuously devout ing big plates of While I waspreseut the men took a splendid lioree from the stable and led him out to be killed. He was a magnificent black carriage hoise, with a neck which showed good blood, and he was not, 1 judge, more thau six years old. He had slipped aud fallen a few days be fore, and had sprained his leg, so that he was Jsmieforlife. He had tho kind, soft, beautiful eyes of a good horse, and it sickened me to thiuk of liis death. It was affecting to see him as the butchers look liim and dragged him on hii three legsacrosa the yard, aud it seemed like a sacrilege when one of them stopped him before the door of the killiug-ruom and clipped with a pair of sheep-shears his mane and fore ock eis3 to the skin. It was more like mur ler thau anything else wheu he was dragged m into the stable of -death and killed. As Iu ncaretl Ihe-door he swelled the blood on the floor, and his sensitive nostrils quiv ered and he hung hack. But a brutal stroke Villi a. club drove him ou. aud he stood A Maiikkt Poutku. horse-bone soup in the next room and look as fat and healthy as any children 1 have ever seen Taised on beef. In company with her I walk over her little collar tcnemeut of six suiail rooms, three of which arc devoted to tho butchery and to tho cookinc of the horso moat in one shape or another, and she tells me that tho meat is good aud that her customers for it are regular ones. The restaurants at which horse meat are sold are frequented entirely by the poorer classes. They aro like all of the average low-class res taurants in Berlin, and you get a fair quantity of vegetables with the average horse meat or der, aud as a rule the cooking is fair for the price. Such meat as I sampled looked aud tasted much liko vension, and as I don't liko venison I can't say that I doto on horse. Still, under a French chef horse moat would not bo at all had. A dinner was given hore not long ago, at which tho elite of Berlin were present, whero nothing else than horso in ouo shape or another was served. More than 150 pcoplo sat down to the table, and among tho articles on tho bill of faro were horso roast, horso ham, and filet of horso with salad. Thoso were washed down with champagne, aud tho dinner was devoted to the raising of horso meat in tho oyes of "the Gor man people. Speaking of the cooking of horso flesh I bought a cook book at ouo of tho butcher shops, which was entirely devoted to horso meat, and which gives all sorts of recipes for cooking and serving it. There is ono which tells how to roast horse a la Cologne; ono which lias tho xecipo of Dr. Karl Buss for making roast iilot of horse, or "wuorhobraten," nnd a third which gives directions for making a roast filetof horso a la Geoffroy Saint-IIilaire. Somo of the -recipes are quite interesting, and I translato one for the serving of horse's brain in a way that is said to bo truly delicious. You put tho horse's brains, nicely clcanod, in cold water, aud scasou them with salt, allspice, and vinegar. Cook them half an hour; after that cool them and put them ou a clean napkin and let them dry. Now cut them up in slices and flavor them with salt and pepper to taste. Thon paruish them with eggs aud cracker meal, and fry them in butter until thoy are of a light-yellow-brown color. Horso epicures tell me that this dish is excellent. Another recipe is for mayonnaiso of brains. Iu this you treat tho brains in tho same way, but you do not fry them. You pour over tho dish French vinegar aud olive-oil, and servo with mayon naise, after garnishing the brains with allspice, crabs' tails, capors,.aiid pickles. Ail kinds of sausages arc imitated in Berlin out of horse-flesh, and this recipe-book tells how to cook horse-flesh so it will resemble all kinds of beef and mutton, and tho probability is that in Paris or Vienna, where tho laws aro not so strict as they aro here, that a groat deal of horse-flesh is eaten" under other names. can pick tho vat, meat- stalls are very clean'' aud tho counters in front of them aro of'white marble. Every scrap of meat is sold, aud the Gornmus mako soup and sausage of cuts w'ifch in America go to the dogs. The vogdtajMc market Is very large, and on tho outsido'o"iblic market-houses you soo littlo boys and gYrlspoddling all sorts of vege tables, while within' tho stalls, presided over by women, aro piled high with green stuff. ' It does not take much direction to find a choose-markot.""iY6C havo only to follow your noso aud to lot it follow the smell, and you come to a hundred stalls in which nothing but cheeso and buttor aro sold. The battor is often wrapped up in cabbage-leaves, and tho cheese is of ovory variety, from Swoitzor and Edam to Limburger and Stilton. Tho Germans use ehoese more as a moat than as a relish, and with tho pooror classes it largely takes tho place of meat. Tho retail market trade begins at 6 a. m., and it lasts till noon; and there is auothor market from 5 till 8 in tho evening. There is a big wholesale vegetable and meat market hore iu the morning beforo G, and a groat deal of tho wholesalo marketing is done in tho shape of auctions. Tho auctioneer will hold up a side of beof and fix a price npon it, aud will thou lot tho butchers bid against each other for it. It must, however, bring the low price which ho puts upon it. Hams and poul try are sold in this same way, and ono of tho liveliest auction sccnos in tho world is that which takes place hore beforo daybreak ovory Monday morning. Tho Germans appreciate good things. In those markets I find that fino grades of meat and lino ve&ctahles bring good prices. Tho Gorman cooking is almost equal to that of tho Fronch, and you can get somo tilings bettor horo than anywhere else in the world. Thero is no finer asparagus to bo found anywhoro than that in Germany, and tho poultry which is served up in the German restaurants is of excollent quality. Frank G. Carpenter. The German sanitary arrangements are ex cellent. All tho killing of animals for the market has to goon under the inspection of tho Government, and no meat is imported that is not passed upon by Govornmeut Inspectors. Considerable alarm has becu felt here during tho past Fall among the Consuls at somo of tho American pork which was examined in Amer ica, but was found not good on re-examination here. Tho truth is that wo have too fow Inspectors in America for the amount of meat we ship to Germany. Tho force should bo increased, and nothing should be shipped hero but the very best. It is the same with beef as with pork, and Minister Phelps and Secretary Busk havo dono more for American meats in Germany than any other officials wo have had for years. What tho United States should do now is to hold to that which they havo gained aud to not let it slip from us by carelessness. I visited the Berlin markets this morning. The buildings containing them cover half a dozen acres of ground. They aro roofed with glass, and tho majority of the sellers of meat and vegetables aro women. The portors aro women, and I saw gray-haired dames of GO car rying great baskets of meat and vegetables on their hacks, and these baskets were hold thero by straps which wont around tho shoulders, and some of thorn woighod from 50 to 100 pounds. They contained the snj p ies of pur chaser?, which these old women were carrying Voto on tho Disability Hill. .Editor National Tkiuunk: PIcaso state tho party voto on tho final passage of the dis ability pension bill of Juno 27, 1890?

Many Subscribers. A great many of our subscrib ers write u-t in reference, to the Cherokee S up, ami the time of its opening up for settlement. One correspondent writes: " Will yon please tell me if the Cherokee Strip will come into the m.irket this Spring, and will it he a good sue to make n home?" -ilnsicer. Every honorably discharged soldier who.erved in the late wnruf the rebellion, who'hns not already exhausted his privileges under the homestead law and obtained title to 150 acres of land, will have a char.ee to secure a homestend iu the Cherokee Strip. The special privileges of an honorably-discharged soldier are, viz.: 1-t. That he can file his declaratory statement by an iigenl nud then have six mouths within which to move upon the land, mnke his ontry. nnd comply with tho law. If the soldier should elect to do this, he should be careful to select an honest nud reliable agent, for the filing of this paper exhausts his rights under the homestead law. It is best iu nil cases to be present in person nnd at once enter upon the land. 2d. He is entitled to have hi term of service in the army, or if discharged by reason of wounds, his term of enlistment, not exceeding in nny case a period of four years, deducted from the five years of residence nud cultivation required by law. but iu nil cases ait actual, bona fide residence of one year is required. The Cherokee Strip is snid to bo a well-watered country, with a very fertile nnd fruitful soil. It promises to be settled up with a ru-h, and alto gether it is said to bean excellent nud desirable plncc, considered as n new country for those seek ing homes there. We cannot any when it will bo opened up to settlement. Tiie matter is now pend ing in Congress, nud important initiative action has already been taken. We suggest that our corre spondents keep track of the matter by rending the notices, which nre sure to be published broadcast iu every newspaper iu the country, us they appear the best and only means of keeping themselves well informed. J. S. (A. irnmbnrg, loica. 1. I received a letter from the I'entton Bureau, stating that I was draw ing n pcusi6ii under the new law. mi I my old-law claim could not be tukeu up without injustice to other claimants who are not iu receipt of n pension. I sec in your issue of Dec. 22 that there is nothing in either law which conflicts or interferes with the other. Which is wrong, the Pctihiou Bureau or Tun X.vnoxAit Tiukuse? 2. How ninny claims are there on the "finishing'" files? 3. What nre the duties of the- First Deputy Commissioner? 1. About how long before claims come in their regular turn? Answer. 1. Neither is wrong. The statement of the Pension Bureau does not conflict with our statement. The old-law claim is simply laid aside, to come up again when nil the new-law claims shall have been disposed of. It is thought by the Pension Bureau that those who aro drawing a pension under the new law, and -who Imve old- law claims pending, can batter tiffbrd to wait until their less fortunate comrades, who are not iu re ceipt of any pension, have been provided for. When that time comes, all 'these old-law claim?, which have been laid nside without prejudice, will be taken up nud disposed of if they nre complete. 2. By "finishing" files we presume you menu "complete file-." According to the niiuunl report of the Commissioner of Pensions, there were, on Oct. 12, IS'JJ. of all classes, 131,70(1 claims on the completed files, including 75,767 elaims for increase. 3. He has charge of the Eastern anil Southern Ad judicating Divisions, embracing claims arising from enlistments in Alabama, Arkansas. Connecti cut, Delaware. Florida. Georgia, Kentucky, Louisi ana, Milium, IMas-achn-ietts. Maryland. Mississippi, Missouri. New York. New Jersey, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Rhode Islnnd, South Carolina, Tcnnes-'ec. Texas, Vermont, Virginia. West Vir ginia, the District of Columbia, and the 17. S. Colored Troops. -1. Thai cannot be answered, be cause no two claims arc alike. THE BEST Is the best Blood Medicine, becaaaa it assists nature to throw off the ka purities of the blood, and at thesasaa time tones up tho entire organism. This is jns. contrary to tho effect of the various potash, mer atry, sarsaparilla mixtures, which bottlo up tb impurities in the system, thus producing moeJt sickness and suffering. Therefore, for a BLOOD MEDICINE you cannot do better than take S. S. S. "As a physician, I have prescribed and used S. S. S. in my practice as a tonic, and for blood troubles, and havo been very successful. I never used a remedy which gave such general satisfac tion to myself and patients. " L. li. Rrrcii y, 3r.

Men" Ion The fctlocal Tribune. To Improve Cijiarets. St. Louis Globe Democrat. A splendid way to improve a poor eigarefc is to fumigate it with sulphur. That may sound fiticer, hut it is a fact, as I discovered accident ally a few week3 ago. It is tho easiest thing in tno world to do. Tnko any ordinary cigarct and proparo to light it. Then take a sulphur match and light it. While it is sputtering draw tho fumes from it through the cigarot. Thoy will barely reach your mouth, but the effect on the cigarot will ho marvelous. That biting sensation that sometimes accompanies a good strong puff will bo entirely eliminated. Tho cigaret will be mild and 3wcet. I drew the sulphnr fume through my cigarot accident ally, and thought first of throwing the cigaret away. Thon I reilecteil. that tho sulphur was harmless, and so concluded to smoke it. Now I always fumigato my cigarets, often nsiug three and four matches instead of one. To Others Ilelong- tho Spoil. Si. Louis Globe-Democrat.
