Wiesbaden Cor. Inter Ocean. The German as he now is presents the strangest combination of hard brute-force and finest sentiment For example, a trades man or hotel porter will play the piano or violin with all the delicacy and sentiment of the most refined. He is familiar with poetry,' particularly his own poets, and is often quite a linguist besides. The love of pictures is as universal as in Italy, and yet a man will point to the hideous scars on his face, re ceived while fighting at college, with all the pride and satisfaction of an artist pointing out the finest bit of coloring or drawing. Military discipline is the order of the day everywhere, especially in the boys' schools. The teachers beat the boys, and the boys beat each other. This, the Germans tell 3'ou, is the only way in which boys can be tauzht to be manly, and to defend them selves. But that which most influence s the Ameri can stranger as the greatest contrast. between his own country and this is the amount of hard labor performed by women. All sorts of farm work is done by them, and the amount of walkine they do in the course of their lives is almost incredible. The people who work the land do not live upon it, but rather in little hamlets of crowded houses and narrow streets; then they walk to and from their gardens or farms, which may be as many as six miles away. The milk-women that bring your milk to the door, either carry it on their heads with a corresponding can m each hand, or, if more well-to-do, haul it in a cart with the help of a larere dosr. I have seen women of at least 75 to 80 years of age working in vineyards, carrying immense baskets of compost on their heads. But the most curious phase of this servitude is the position of the maid-servant in the family. For example, if a gantleman is expected home, unless the family keep a coachman, a maid -servant is often sent to the depot to meet him and carry home his luggage, though the man may be perfectly strong and healthy. In the evening after a concert or theatre the streets are thronged with maid servants, attending their masters or mis tresses, as the case may be. A lady may not go alone to any of these places, though it is perfectly proper for her to be "pro tected" by a maid-servant of 16 while she herself may be CO. The members of the orchestra saunter along smoking and chat ting while young girls carry their instru ments, overcoats, etc The average wages of the best of these servants is only $5 a month. Thus women are the cheapest of all kinds of labor. Yet the family life of the people seems to be on the whole & joyous one. While the poor man does not deny his wife and children the privilege of working by his side, on the other hand they share with him his pleasures, whatever and wher ever they are, so that a "man of a family" here is known by the presence of that f am ily, and ho does not seem to have any haunts that are closed to them. How Cotton Burns. Americus (Ga.) Recorder. "Urn, yum, I smell burnt cotton," said a cotton buyer in front of Toole, McGarran & Tondee's warehouse several days age. "Here it is," said another buyer, picking up a handful of scorched cotton which was lying on the ground. "There is no fire in it, though," he added carelessly. "How fast will cotton burn?" asked a re porter, who was standing by. "It will bum faster than anything I know of," said the buyer as he turned the staple around in his hand, and examined it. "Just to show you here," and he picked up a hand ful of clean cotton and handed it to the re porter. "Now wad that up tight and put your cigar to it. Then fold it up and put your hands over it." The reporter did so. The moment the cigar was applied the cotton caught and the fire be gan to sink down like a drill into the hand ful. He closed his hands over it, and in a short time it became so hot that he was uua ble to hold it. Picking up another handful he wrapped it around the fire, and, holding it tightly in both hands, succeeded in crushing out the fire, as he thought. When it was again opened, however, it began to burn as hard as ever. "It is almost impossible to put the fire out when once it catches cotton. The closer .a bale is packed the faster will it burn. It don't spread out like anything else, but burns di rectly to the center, and coUsumes the inside of the bale first. I remember once in Savan nah on the wharf, where I was billing some compressed bales, that all at once a boy yelled at me, and looking around I saw a bale I had just passed fall to pieces and flames begin to come from it. By good luck the fire got no fur ther. Ttiat bale, probably, had been burning a couple of days. Gin-houses are often burned up by the pickers smoking in the field and letting a spark drop into a cotton basket. It is dumped into the wagon and then into the gin-house, and does not get fairly started before night, and be fore any one knows it, the gin-house is on fire and burnt. "Big fires in warehouses," he continued, "are often caused by careless drivers, who smoke as they drive the cotton to town.. The tiniest kind of a spark will sink into a bale, and if not discovered will burn thous ands of dollars worth of cotton. That is why buyers always carry as much insur ance as they can get. There is no telling when a bhj fire is going to occur." ROYAL INSURANCE C.XMP'Y OF LIVERPOOL. CAPITAL 10,000.000 UNLIMITED LIABILITY.
