Don't marry a woman who bumps her head against the floor every time she sneezes. Flossing is said to be quite common in young ladies schools in Great Britain. A tour of Eurone on velocipedes is shortly to be undertaken by a party of English excursionists. Toast at a railway dinner: " Our mothers, industrious tenders, though they olten mispluced the switch." Mr. Marrowfat defines a " fashionable church " as a place from which people go to heaven fur wearing good clothes. The Worcester (Massachusetts) Palla dium is edited by two sisters, daughters of the former editor. Of course it is a gossippy sheet. 'Gimme a rest is the way south Sixth street young ladies stave off the marriage proposals ot their lovers. Terra Haute t,xpress. The hanemen in California, haviog heard that a Frenchman in that State has been saved from drowning by his deg, are keeping an eye on him. A Massachusetts man and bis sweet heart had themselves married under an old elm because a number of witches had been hanged from it in the early days of the Commonwealth. " The tomb of those loving sinners, Abe- lard and Keloise, in Pere la-Chaise, is undergoing repairs, and .Abelard will in due time have a new nose in the place of the oue knocked off by a communist's bullet. The New York Tribune savs the ladies of Noble oounty, Ohio, are out of work. They have crusaded so admirably that there is not a single spirit or beer shop left there, atid they are thinking of start ing one just to keep their hands in, ' Not long Bince a lady called at the Bloorafield, Iowa, postoffice, ard asked for some three cent stamps. The usnal green ones were handed to her. She handed them back and asked for some pink ones, as she wanted them to match her 'stationery whicu was all ot mat color. 7 The boy problem will never be solved as long as the training of children is left to women. What a history there is in the words of the honest faced man who yesterday stood in a door-way and said to a neighbor solemnly and half confi dentially, "That woman has done her est to raise her boy right, but she can't do iu" A Chicago clergyman relates the fol lowing anecdote: "I once married a handsome young couple, and a'B I took the bride by the hand, at the close of the ceremony, and gave her my warmest congratulations, she tossed her pretty face, and pointing to the bridegroom, replied, ' I think he is the one to be con gratulated.' " An amorous Toung gentleman in Thompson, Georgia, under the impres sion that the sweet voice of his beloved was calling him, lately walked in the night out of his second story bedroom window. When he struck the ground and broke bis ankle, and pain and an guish were wringing his whole leg, he was forced to get along without any ministering angel, for there was none to be seen. A New York judge deserves the especial thanks of women. To a boy brought before him the other day for de fending his mother from the brutality of his father he said: " Young man, l am proud to see that you lore your mother and are anzions to project her, but your violence toward your father has been of a very vigorous character. Try and keep your hands off your father, but in any event protect your mother from injury. You may go." The following dialogue, which took place in a street car a few days ago, is t good to be lost. One of a couple of Teutonic gentlemen, sitting in one end of the car, seeing a flashily dressed fel low come and take his seat at an oppo site end from where they were sitting, asked: " vV'ho ish dat, IlansT" "Oh, dat ish a sport." " Vot you call a sport, hey?" "Ton'tyou know?" "No; vat is he?" "Vel. he is one of der fellers ot chaves all de hair off a pig and cover him all over mit soap, and pet a green Dutchman fj he can't catch him." Raltigh, N. G, Sentinel. MEMPHIS, TENN.: FRIDAY EVENING-, JULY 17, 1874. HAND ORGAJf. Tbedrlndlar Naale Boxes bow tbtj are flo, From the New Yerk Sun.) On the front of a dingy brick building at tbe head of Chatham street, weather beaten and dim, hangs the sign: " Iiand Organs." A reporter saw the sign yes terday aud went in. Up two flights of stairs through the low door to the left, and he Btood in the only band organ manufactory in the United 8tates. Standing at benches, leaning over old organ boxes, seated before little stands, five men were at work. In the middle of the room stood several old hand or gans. On the walls hang queer pat terns, numbered and diagramed, in the further corner stood a machine seven or eight feet high, looking for all the world like a threshing machine. " Is the proprietor in?" asked the re porter of the workman nearest the door. The workman turned, pointed toward the other end of the room, and went on cutting out long strips from a great sheet of pasteboard. Sitting on a low chair, with low table before him, was a short, stout, jolly faced man, evidently a German, On the bench in frost of him, mounted on two wooden rests, hung a wooden cylinder fifteen inches long, perhaps, and five inches in diameter. Behind the cylinder was a small case, a Lilliputian type case, con taining thirty-six little boxes, and every box full of little brass pins. " What do you charge for a common sized organ?" asked tbe reporter. " It depends on the kind," answered the proprietor. "I can make you a flute organ, with twenty-four keys, to play nine tunes, with a black walnut case, for a hundred dollars. If you want an organ to play ten tunes I can make it for yon for a hundred and twenty dollars.. An organ of this size will weigh about twenty-rive pounds. A parlor organ, with from twenty-five to forty six keys, will cost you from a hun dred and fifty to two hundred and fifty dollars. A side show organ, to play nine tunes, with sixty keys, thirty-fire brass trumpets, large and small drums and triangles, I can make you for two thousand dollars." NEW TUNES I OLD IK8TIIUMENTS. While he was talking the jolly little man sat pegging away at the cylinder before him, driving a pin here and a peg there, straightening them with a little pair of pincers and flattening them with a little light hammer. " What are yon driving those pegs in there for?" asked the reporter. "This is an old cylinder. It was made twenty years ago," he answered; "the tunes that were all the go then don't draw out the pennies worth a cent now. I atr putting new tunes in it. I take the cylinder out and paste a sheet of clean white paper around it. Then I mark it for the tunes, and drive these little pins in, and the thing is done. It's very easy to do." It looked very easy. The cylinder was covered with hundreds ot little black lines, some half an inch long, others scarely more than a dot. The reporter asked how he knew where to draw the lines. The little man took a handful of the little pins out of his apron on his lap, took a few dozen more out of his mouth, got up and began to turn the crank of a dismantled organ that stood near. ' HAND OROAS8 AND CHORCH ORGANS. "You see," said he, "a hand organ is made like any common organ. It has a bellows and pipes and keys. When you waul lo play on a church organ you push down the keys; when you want to play on a hand organ, you lift the keys. You use your fingers to play on a church organ; these little brass pins are the fin gers an a hand organ. You see these little wires that hang down from tbe ends of tbe keys? Well, every time one of those wires strikes one of the brass pins when the cyliuder is going round the key is raised and the note is sounded. If the brass pin is one of those long, half inch ones, the key stays up a good while, and the note is a long one. If the pin is just a little dot, the key falls riyht back, and the note is short. ' " But how do you know where to mark the cylinders for the tunes?" "That's a secret of the tradfe," an swered the little man; " but I guess I'll show you. You see the cylinder is cov ered with clean paper, and all ready; now I hang it in by the iron rod that sticks out at each end. The tune I want to mark it for I play on the keys, only I press the keys down instead of lifting them, for I know what noise they would make just as well as if they did make it. Every time one of those little wires strikes the cylinder it makes a little dent. If I bold it down for a long note it marks with a pen to make them plain. When one tune is marked I go on with the next. When the tunes are all marked I put the pins in, as you see." " Bow do the organ grinders change from one tune to another while they are playing in the street?" inquired the re- Pr. ' .... Every organ, respanaea me nine man, "plays from seven to ten tunes. This one I am working at plays eight. Do you see these little grooves?" and he pointed to one end of tbe cylinder where a piece of the wood had been left, about two inches long and an inch and a half in diameter. There were eight little grooves around the projection. " When the organ grindsr wants to change the tune he lifts that little spring, shoves tbe cylinder in or out one groove, and the tune is thus changed." A CUSTOMER. " Is my organ done yet?" The proprietor turned round. The voice was from a long, slim, hungry looking man, dressed in army blue, with a pair of dark green spectacles hiding hit eyes, who bad come in so quietly that nobody had noticed him. " No, it's not done yet," said the little man, " I'm at work at it now. I guess by this time to-morrow it'll be all ready for yon." Tbe man in blue turned slowly round, felt his way with a long' stick, found the door, and groped down the dark stairs. 11 '1' L ' man " auwl tka Hrnnwillti... " owns tbe organ on the floor. He fell in the street a week ago, and his organ was broken. Be brought it here to be mended. He was in the same company that I was in the army. A bullet grazed across both of his eyes, and took off the bridge of his nose. Ee is totally blind. He only wanted the box of his organ fixed, but I am changing the tunes for him, and it shan't coat him a cent." " How long will it take you to change the eight tunes?" asked the reporter. "About three days. I charge four dollars a tune for changing sometimes five, on a large organ." "What is that machine in the corner ?'' " That's a s&loon organ. It belongs down here in street. They're got tired of tbe old tunes, and are going to have a set of new eaes. I made that machine five years ago, and got 12000 for it." "That's a long time for one set of tunes. How long do tbe organs gene rally last?" asked the reporter. , , INSTRUMENTS THAT LAST. "Ob, bless your soul," said tbe little man, " five years is no time at all for a hand organ. Why, there's many an organ traveling tbe streets that's been used every day, week in and week out, for the last thirty years. That is just what kills the business. Tbey last too long." " How many organs do you make in a year?" asked the reporter. " Well, from seventy-five to a hun dred. When times are hard more men have to go grinding organs, and then the business is better. I shall make a hundred this year." , "That ought to make a profitable business." " No, it don't. Materials are so high that there is not very much profit on organs. I have to do some work in other branches to make it pay. I make a great many automatic figures for trav eling shows, and repair most all kinds of musical instruments." " Then there are a hundred new orgaug turned loose to pray on the public every year?" ' " More than that," said the little man. " This is the only band organ manufac tory in the country, but there's a firm in street that imports them from France. They sell about as many every year aa I do, and sell them for the same prices." ' ' " Then there is no competition?" " No, no competition." " Can any of your workmen mark the cylinders for new tunes?" No; there are only two men on this side of the Atlantic who can put the tunes on a cylinder the man who im ports organs from France and myself." "Are there many Germans grinding organs?" " No," responded the organ maker, " the grinders are nearly all Italians and old American soldiers.'
