Hew Iiiraraee Men Regard Certain Ato-
In conversation with a prominent
insurance journalist, the subject of
unhealthy occupations was broached,
and a New York Star reporter was in-
formed that thousends of workmen
were daily engaged in certain almost
fatal trades.
"There are many occupations," said
the insurance man, "that are specially
dangerous (I use the word in contrad
istinction to the term unhealthf ul) to
human life. I mean such occupations
in which accidents are likely to happen,
if extraordinary care is net used.
Those workmen who in painting the
houses have to stand on a suspended
stagp, hanging often by a single rope,
literally carry their lives in their hands.
Masons and bricklayers engaged in the
erection of high buildings stand in im
minent danger of their lives. Sailors,
fishermen, pilots, engineers, drivers of
locomotives and car drivers all pursue
dangerous occupations and live every
moment, as it were, with the risk of
being killed; but it is not to these dan
gerous employments I refer when I
speak of those that come under the
head of unhealthy ones. There are
trades in which thousands are getting
their livings that are absolutely fatal
in themselves."
"And are these fatal trades, as you
call them, essential to the demands of
modern civilization?"
"There's the rub. Let me tell you
that these baneful, pernicious trades
which undermine the health of the
workers to such an alarming degree,
swelling the death rate and filling our
cemeteries, are almost all not merely
essential, but really indispensable to
the welfare of the public."
"In a word, you mean that there are
useful vocations, in which men,
women and children are employed, that
are detrimental to health, and shorten
"That is so. I would call them
deadly industries. Factory life at the
best is but a poor affair, but when the
work is health-destroying, what a fear
ful thing to consider."
"Will you refer specially to some
ui uie iniaes wnicn you aeem un
healthy?" "Well, there are the workers in brass
and copper. The artisans employed in
this trade actually suffer from slow
poisoning, living a life of hardship,
sickness and disease untill nature ref
uses any longer to put up with the ter
rible injustice and demands a reckon
ing. Brass and copperworkers suffer
in health, and die victims to their trade.
The factories in which brass and cop
per are filed, turned and worked, are
dirty places as a rule. In addition the
atmosphere is heavily charged with
particles of metal dust, which float in
the air, penetrate the lungs, and de
stroy in an insidious manner the bodies
of the unfortunate workmen who must
constantly inhale it. This metal-poisoned
air enters and permeates the
humaii system so thoroughly as to color
its secretious and perspiration. The
proof that the blood of these workmen
is vitiated may be found in the fact
that the operatives thus exposed get
their linen worn next the person
stained with a greenish color, and when
heated, green beads of perspiration issue
from the pores of their skin. That
their throat and saliva are perniciously
affected goes without saying. The
blood of such persons is poisoned to
that degree that their bruises, cuts and
wounds ulcerate and are healed with
-Too-draw an awful picture," said
the reporter.
"Here is a case; A young man with
ruddy cheeks, bright eyes and buoyant
movements, full of health and manly
vigor, held for some years the position
of foreman in a brass cannon-lock fac
tory. His health failed him; he was
a victim of blood poisoning, the result
of his deleterious emyloyment. He
never recovered his health, for the
fatal dust had penetrated his system,
and corrupted hisblood. He left the I
factory, traveled, tried change of air
and a new life, but even the best me
dical skill was powerless to restore his
health. There was no remedy which
could dislodge the fatal deposit nor
purify the vital current of his body.
. He lingered for years, his existence a
living death, and finally went down to
the grave in the prime of his manhood
a martyr to his deadly craft, leaving
a wife and five children destitute."
There are, of course, other trades
which I suppose you would rank as
unhealthy besides brass and copper
"Yes. Yictims of deadly industries
may be found among lapidaries, steel
grinders, manufacturers of paints and
white lead, iron-moulders, makers of
grindstones, sawyers, lead-pencil mak
ers .and a score of others, without
speaking of such employments as cooks,
printers and bakers, who, while not
inhaling metalic particles, breathe a
jioisome, fctil atmosphere, and work
under circumstances alike inimical to
health and happiness."
It becomes a question in this day of
enterprise and competition in industrial
progress," said the reporter," "whether
those who follow, at a lamentable cost.,
necessary but fatal trades, should not
be regarded as having some claim on
legal protection."
"Most decidedly," answered the insur
ance man, "These operatives who
toil only to die victimsto their work,
are selfsacrificing benefactors to man
kind, and society has a duty toward
them which should be performed in a
philanthropic spirit."
"What is your plan of compensa
tion?" "The f&td toilers, whose labors be
nelit mankind at the risk of their own
J neah, and whose lives are daily im-
periled ana wasted, should receive
some legislative protection which would
compel the owners of factories and
workshops in which deadly industries
are carried on to make some provision
at least for the families of their work

American Agriculturist.
FHre-Bred Stack.
As a rule pure-bred stock is not the
most profitable for farmers to keep.
Many who have tried to breed a herd of
pure blood animals have failed. The
cost to begin with is large. The writer
recently visited a herd of Jersey cattle,
some of the cows in which had cost
many hundreds of dollars. The pro
duct in flesh and milk from these ani
mals is not so much over that of the
grade cow as to warrant the prices
paid. The management that such
close bred stock requires is much
greater than that of grade stock; that
is crosses between the pure blood and
the native stock. Pure blood animals
and herds, like the one above men
tioned, are of value as breeding
centres, from wbich the great mass of
common stock can be built up. At a
low estimate the value of the grade
product can be raised $15 or $20 each,
the first season. It may be that a far
mer with a large herd of grades thus
produced can afford to keep two or
three pure blood animals for further
improvement of the herd, but in many
cases it will be better to replenish the
pure blood from one of the centres of
such sock. It is a national blessing that
"fancy farmers," as they are sometimes
called, are pleased to make such large
investments in pure blood stock, for by
this means the supply of any breed i8
kept up. It would be a calamity if
from any cause these carefully man
aged herds should all be broken up and
scattered. It is through them that
the whole live stock of this country is
to be improved by a gradual process of
grading. In this important work the
less fortune-favored stock raisers may
find a profitable field of labor. Ameri

Liquid Itlonarc.
It is a matter of great surprise that
so many farmers allow the liquid con
tents of their barnyards to be wTashed
away into creeks and rivers instead of
utilizing it in fertilizing their land.
Xor will it ever be otherwise until
proper means are taken to prevent it.
There certainly would bo no great
trouble in doing so. All that is neces
sary is to dig a round pit or cistern of
sufficient size just outside the barn
yard, and wall it up with stone, firmly
embedded in cement mortar to make it
watertight. A trench or sort of blind
ditch about a foot in depth the sides
of which to be also walled with stone
should then bo dug all along the
lower side of the yard, close inside the
fence, for the purpose of conducting
the liquid from the yard to the cistern,
from which it is to be pumped or emp
tied as needed, into a live-barrel cask,
placed in the hind end of a wagon to be
hauled to wherever wanted. A hole
should have been previously bored into
the cask, near its lower heading, from
which there should extend a pfece of
rubber hose to connect it with a dis
tributer suspended from the rear end of
the wagon by means of iron rods, the
distributer to be made of a four-inch
pump stock, Ave feet in length, closed
at both ends, and perforated with
quarter-inch holes at short intervals
the whole length of the bottom, for the
purpose of distributing the liquid over
the land. With such a simple fix it is
an easy matter to distribute the liquid
as fast as accumidated, and it is par
ticularly beneficial to grass land at any
time when the grass is not large
enough to be injured by being driven
over. By this means, and by carefully
saving and utilizing all other manurial
material found on the premises we
verily believe that on a majority of
farms the most of the money now being
spent in the purchase of fertilizers
could be saved. Baltimore Sun.
Tim Longest Bridge.
The longest bridge now in actual use
is the one that crosses the St. Lawrence
river at Montreal a tubular structure
resting on massive stone piers. One
opening measures 330 feet, and twenty
four others 240 feet each. Its total
length is 9,437 feet, of which the tubu
lar part measures 7,000 feet. The
grandest suspension bridge in the
world is the one now nearly completed
across the East river, between Xew
York and Brooklyn, at the enormous
cost of $13,708,026, which will reach
about $15,000,000 before it is finished
and equipped. It is 5,989 feet in length.
Another enormous suspension bridge,
which will eventually measure more
than the one just named, is the new
bridge across the Forth, at Queensbury,
Scotland, to be completed in 1882. The
Forth is rather more than a mile wide
at this point, and the necessary ap
proaches will make the entire struc
ture about one and one-third miles
long. A large part of it will rest on
piers, but it will contain two suspen
sion spans, one of which will be the
same length as the main span of the
Xew York and Brooklyn bridge.
There is a bridge over the Ohio, at
Louisville, 5,310 feet in length. There
are the Barkersburg bridge, West Vir
ginia, 7,046 feet; the St. Charles bridge,
over the Missouri, 6,536 feet; bridg
over the Delaware, 4,920 feet; bridgt
over the Rhine, at Mayence, 8,980 feet;
bridge over the river, Tongabudha, near
Bombay, India, 3,730 feet; bridge across
the Missouri, at Omaha, 2,800 feet;
bridge over the Mississippi, at Quixcy,
2,790 feet, and the railway suspen&Vm
bridge, at- Niagara, 2,220 feet
Protecting His Character.
Entering the shop of his tailor the
other day he said:
"Yes, sir, you do."
"And I have owed it for a ytar."
"You have."
"And this is the fifth postal card you (
have sent me regarding the debt."
"I think it is the fifth."
"Xow, sir, while I cannot pay the ;
debt for perhaps another year, I pro- '
pose to protect my character as far as I
possible. Here are twelve two-cent j
stamps. You can use them in sending j
me twelve monthly statements of ac-1
county and can thus save your postal
cards and my feelings at the same -time."
It is said that the tailor has credited
the twenty-four cents on account, and
feels that he has secured more of the
debt than he had any reason to hope

Bearers ef lmpertaat Notts to Important
PeopleHow a Itlosdcgl Barms Hla
In Turkoy and Egypt it is customary
for the grandees to make presents to
those who bring them the first infor
mation of good news. These men are
called "musdegis" or newsbearers, and
although it may appear singular, a
number of these are professionally at
tached to the various ministries. They
receive no salary, of course, but, on
the contrary, have to pay a pretty
round sum to the minister or other
high official for the position. The in
stant a firman is signed conferring a
decoration upon anybody, pro
moting a civil or military officer, ap
pointing an ambassador or consul,
etc., the musdegi runs off at full speed
to convey the " havadis " or good news
to the party concerned. Long before
he reaches the house, but when within
hearing distance, he shouts out as
loud as he can, " Good news for the
most noble, respected, or honored (as
the case may be) so and so pasha, bey,
or elfendi," which he goes on repeating
till he enters the lucky man's residence.
Upon being admitted he immediately
becomes silent, and under no con
sideration will he impart the news to
anybody else but to the person whom
it concerns, as if the latter was to first
hear it from anybody else he would
have to remunerate him, and not the
" musdegi," the custom being to
recompense the person who is the
first to bring the news. Being con
ducted to the grandee's apartment, he
bows low, kisses the tips of his fingers,
touches his forehead with them, then
the ground, which he goes on repeating
several times, according to the gentle
man's rank, this being the only method
of Turkish " salaaming " or salutation,
lie then asks him if he is in a humor to
receive good news, and upon being told
to proceed, tells him the pleasant
tidings, for which ho receives a present,
Which is in accordance with the magni
tude of the promotion or decoration.
In many cases the sum paid is actually
fixed by old habit, such cases being the
promotion to the grand vizierate, to
the Greek patriarchate, ministry of
war, etc.
This custom of rewarding bearers of
good news exists officially in England
also, but only in exceptioiml cases, one
of these being that the treasury pays
the fixed sum of 500 to the officer who
comes from a foreign campaign to in
form the sovereign of the successful
termination of the war, and a great
deal of fuss was made in England when
Sir Garnet Wolseley sent Lord Gilford
on this mission to inform the queen of
the capture of Cetewayo, instead of
the officer who had effected that
worthy's capture, and who, it was
thought, deserved the 500 more than
anybody else.
The musdegi" in the East, besides
being the bearer of good news, for
which he gets equally well, if not bet
ter, paid, as Turkish officials, being
liable to be dismissed, arrested or ex
iled at any moment, without cause or
warning, generally arrange with one
of the " musdegis " to inform them in
time so that they can make good their
escape. It was through this source
that Midhat Pasha got news of ah or
der having been issued for his arrest,
upon wluch he took refuge in the
French consulate at Smyrna, but was
afterward handed over to the Otto
man authorities by order of the French
minister of foreign affairs.
The Woman WhoJtulcs Russia.
Mme. Pobedonostzeff, the leading
spirit of the Russian government to
day, is, says a correspondent, the "wife
of the chief "procureur of the holy synod
and the most confidential counselor of
the czar. She is yoimg, beautiful and
ambitious. She married Mr. Pobedon
ostzeff but a few years ago. Her hus
band, a very old gentleman, is in love
with her. It is said of him that the
knightly motto, " God and My Lady,"
he changed into " God and My Wife,"
and upholds it as devoutly as a knight
of old. He rises early, prays to God
adores his wife and then goes to see
the czar or the ministers or the holy
synod, and everywhere he tries his best
to carry out the commands
of his charming goddess. Mean
while she herself is not idle. She re
ceives hosts of fair visitors of high
rank, who, while offering their, hom
age, seize the chance of commending
their husbands, brothers or cousins
Sometimes this or that minister of
state does himself the honor of pay
ing his respects to her. Occasionally
she visits her majesty, the czaritza, t
cheer her soul in her golden cage. And
the czar himself is there always at
hand. Thus, it has come about that,
while the czar keeps away from the
capital of his empire, Mme. Pobedon
ostzeff has somehow found herself to
be the center of the Russian political
world. Instead of the czar's policy or
the chancellor's or the minister's policy
we hear of the madame's policy. "With
the modesty of an ascending star she
does not reveal her projects, but it is

Almost every person is familiar with
this ailment, either as experienced "in
himself or as seen in others. Yet the
best medical experts do not certainly
know its nature or seat. People do
not die of biliousness, however long or
much they may suffer from it, and for
this reason post-mortem examinations
do not certainly reveal its origin.
Probably, however, it is a mild sort
of jaundice, due to some disturbance of
the liver. The liver is the largest
gland in the body, and one of its of
fices is to strain the blood. It cannot,
therefore, be even slightly deranged
without disturbing more or les3 the
entire system.
All persons are not equally liable to
attacks of biliousness. They are often
the result of a certain inherited ten
dency. Says Sir Lionel Beale: "The
bilious habit seems to be due to an un
usually sensitive, irritable stomach and
liver, which will discharge their func
tions fairly in a moderate degree, but
which cannot be made to do more
than this moderate amount of work
without getting much out of order.
"Most of the organs taking part in
the digestion and assimilation of food
seem to strike work when the bilious
attack comes on. If food be taken, the
suffering becomes greater.
"The fact seems to be that the di
gestive organs require rest for a time,
and if, when an attack comes on, this
rest is given, the bil'ous state passes
off, and then the patient feels extremely
well perhaps for a considerable time."
The same high authority condemns
for persons suffering from biliousness,
rich foods, fatty 'soups, fried dishes and
most forms of alcohol. He advises but
little meat, commends vegetables,
fruits and vegetable acids, particularly
lemon juice, and plenty of bread.
Severe cases require medicines for the
liver. Youth's Companion.
