THE PEOPLES PENNIES.
How They Increase and Multiply in the Hands of the Savings Banks. From the -Vein Yorl; Herald. * The present week has been an exception ally busy one with savings banks in this city. Tho accounts of these institutions have for some days been made up and semi annual dividends declared. Tho thousands of deposits of all nationalities, creeds and color, have been for the post few days choking the passageways and lobbies of these establishments aud taxing the em ployes to their utmost limit. * As is well known, saving banks are estab lished with a view to enable the poor to find places in which small savings can be depos ited on interest, and thus to offer induce ments to make such savings. There aro no authentio"details regarding the founding of the first savings bank beyond tho mere fact that it was founded in Hamburg in 1778. Berne, in Switzerland, followed in 1787, and in that country, at Zurich, is the oldest ex isting savings bank in Europe, which was founded in 1805. Though Francis Masercs in 1 771 started the ball in England relative to savings banks, it was Jeremy Bentham who gave it the kick which landed it on a successful basis. The first savings bank in Ireland was es tablished at Btillorgan, county Dublin, in March. 1815. In 1807 the Rev. John Muck ci-sy established in Scotland the “West Cal dor Friendly Bank for tho Savings of the poor.” By tho end of 1810 there were seventy-four savings banks in England and Wales and four in Ireland. Similar sys tems have been successfully introduced into Australia and Canada. The earliest savings bank established in France was in Paris, July 29, 1818; there was one in Bordeaux in 1819, and one in Marseilles in 1831. In the various States of the German empire savings banks exist, one having been founded in Berlin as early as ISIS. In Austria tho deposits of these institutions amount to $179,475,824. Throughout Europe the deposits in savings banks are estimated at $1,180,000,000. SAVINGS BANKS IN AMERICA. In this country the first savings bank was the “Philadelphia Saving Fund Society,” suggested by Condy Raguet and organized in 1816. It still exists in a flourishing con dition, and ten years ago held deposits amounting to $10,275,752 83. Tho second was established in Boston in the same year; the third in this city in 1819. The statistics of American banks, as near as can be gathered, show that Maino has $0,398 depositors and $29,556,498 deposits; ISew Hampshire, 92,501 and $30,214,585; Vermont, 16,200 and $5,751,002; Massachu setts. 702,099 and S2l'i, 153,120; Rhode Island, 93,124 aud $46,017,164; Connecticut, 205,510 and $72,205,631; New York, the depositors are over 1,000.000, and tho deposits about $007,870,649; New Jersey about $50,000,000, and California 91,933 depositors and about $114,738,206 deposits. Of those savings banks which have begun paying their semi-annual interest, and there are many of them, all show larger assets and an increased number of depositors. Though the depositors have increased tho individual deposits have not. Nevertheless, the aggregated amouut deposited has been greatly augmented. A diagnosis of the financial condition of these institutions is, as a rule, taken as a true estimate of the prosperity of tho people, and if this year’s condition is to be token as a criterion there is no denying the fact that the great mass of the community “are doing quite wel.” SCENES AT THE “EMIGRANT’S.” The panorama of life to bo witnessed daily during the paying oi' interest at the Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank is as striking as it is interesting. Decrepit men and women, with their pennies or dollars of interest awaiting them, take their stand, and, defying heat, hunger or fatigue, dis cuss the weather, the evictions in Ireland or the duplicity of politicians, gradually move along in line to where their money awaits them. Handsome girls in summer attire and coquettish smiles break the monotony of the dull work. The number of depositors at the Emi grant's Bank is 00,000, an increase of 1,571 over that of last year. The earnings of the bank ending June 33, from interest on bond and mortgage, stocks, daily bank balances, foreclosed properties and revenue of bank ing house, were, $813,832 36. Only one-half of the depositors draw interest, while the other half leave their earnings to capitalize. The preponderance of women, especially of the servant order, was quite noticeable. There is no class of poor people in this city so well off as the servant girls. This may seem paradoxical, but when the fact is taken into consideration that all the wants of these people arc supplied and their earn ings capitalized the problem is easily solved. No other class of people can do the same thing, and it it is fair to say that ninety nine out of every 100 of these servant girls do this. DRAWING INTEREST AT “TIIE CITtZEXS’.” At the Citizens’ Savings Bank, corner of Canal street aud the Bowery, everything was in a bustle yesterday. There is proba bly no savings itank which collects such a heterogeneous mass of humanity as the Cit izens’. Its president, E. A. Quintard, looked smilingly out yesterday upon the sea of faces as they quietly waited their turn to draw their semi-annual interest. The bank has 30.000 depositors, to whom it owes $10,429,- 417,(1.). Its assets amount t' $11,024,902.01, and its surplus to $1,195,454.30. Since the beginning of the year its depositors have in creased 1,006, its liabilities to these $203,843,' 14. and Its assets aro greater by $205,700.23. Yesterday tho depositors were out in force. Actors and artists brushed against bakers and barbers, while barkeepers and blacksmiths nodded to one another. Brewers and brokers were in the ranks, and so were butchers and builders. Carpenters and clergymen elbowed one another, as did also conductors and compositors. Cooks, cloth ier.-, and coopers formed in line with editors and publishers, engineers and engravers, firemen and florists, grinders and govern ®*es. hotel kecjicrs and housekeepers. The monotony at this bank was broken recently by one of those cranks who turn up on every occasion. Tho war of traffic was at its height on the Bowery when a ham, lank, cadaverous looking woman slipped up to tho cashier’s window and said; FOR THE ARMY OF THE LORD. “I want a million dollars.” “That’s the case with a great many people, htadnni,” said tho cashier. “I want you to obey my orders without comment,’"she said. “Give me tho money hi snlull bills.” "What is it to Ist used fori” "To pay nty army.” “What army!” "The army of the Lord.” “Never heard of it,” sai l tho cashier, and th|'n everybody snickered. "M ell, sir. Inin waiting." “Might I inquire your name, merely as a matter of form, madam,” inquired the cashier. “My name, sir, is Sarah Googliegan.” “Any relation to Owney? 1 ’ asked ono of tile clerks, and all took suhio fresh gum. “I’m sorry wo can’t accommodate you to '■'i)’.” said the cashier, “but we had tho sidewalk and windows washed this morning mid are consequently out of small change. “1 don’t want any foolishness about this.” si"' said. “It may become necessary to bite sonic ono," and she made a couple of steps forward. Vi u had better apply to the President," hrgi.sl the cashier. “Perhaps Mr. Quintard can attend to your case. Ho always keeps a attic money'concealed in his clothes.” . Instead lit going to the President's room i, 1 " walked out of tho door and down the flowery, V (sH yilay a woman depositor came to • n bank to collect her Interest. Kho pro nounced her name so cf%rcly differently bom what tho clerks were accustomed to hear it that no, ouo was able to identifv , T ' Nile could neither rc:ui nor write, and i ii t° her contusion she was unable to ’cl where she lived. She was subsequently identified, her nume found and her interest given to her. ... THE KIMBLE DIME, he Luloii 7)Vow .Eavino’s Ljatltution. at Broadway and Thirty-second street, has increased its business and assets of late. Its asseis now are 88,204,354 47, its deposits $7,639,308 84, and its surplus $600,384 02. A noticeable feature of this institution is the gain of women depositors over that of men. The ratio is about four to three. Here yesterday jewelers and laborers were seen together, as were also laundresses and lawyers, liquor dealers and lithographers, masons and mechanics, merchants and milk men, milliners and moulders. Everything wore a prosperous look at this institution. At the Broadway Savings Bank, No. 4 Park place, a simiki r scene was witnessed. At the German Bank, No. IUO East Four teenth street, everything was fraught with that frugality which is one of the strongest characteristics of the German. Up at the Harlem Savings Bank, at No. 2,381 Third avenue, the scene was one of genuine activity. Cigarmakers and shoe makers, stonecutters and storekeepers, tailors and tanners, and tinsmiths and to bacconists mingle in one happy family. At the Bowery Savings Bank; the East River, No. 3 Chambers street: Dry Dock, No. .'43 Bowery; Manhattan, No. ti!i4 Broadway, and the Greenwich, No. 73 Sixth avenue, the statement as to the amount of deposits and the number and character of their depositors were very en couraging. In fact, those who stepped into those institutions could not help being struck with the democracy of the depositors and the general good spirit which per meated everybody. Opticians and oyster dealers mingled ip pleasant conversation, photographers and physicians talked science, pianoforte makers aud plumbers smiled at one another, pocket-book makers and policemen winked significantly, porters and printers talked about early hours, provision dealers and restaurant keepers met on a footing, and refiners and distillers were in the same line with roofers, saddlers, sales men, seamen, seamstresses, soldiers and stewards. A BIG ANTI-POVERTY SOCIETY. Summed up in a word, the condition of the laboring and middle classes from a financial standpoint is undoubtedly very en couraging, taking the savings institutions of the city as the basis for such a statement. EATING THE FLESH OF DOGS. Mrs. Hammermiller and Children Dine Off Their Pet Canine. Front the Chicago Tribune. An oldish little German woman wearing a faded dark calico dress aud a shapeless straw bonnet stepped briskly and in a busi ness-like way into the prisoner’s dock at the Chicago Avenue Police Court yesterday when the name of Maurice Hammermiller was called. He was charged with keeping a vicious dog. “My husband is sick, Judge, and I came in his place,” vouchsafed the little woman in German in answer to the look of inquiry in the Justice's eyes. “Well, my good woman, has ho killed that dog as he was ordered? You see, the little boy who was bitten is on hand to prosecute, and I shall certainly assess a fine if my or ders have not been ebeyed.” “O, yah, de dog is dett lor tree or a gub blc days. Ain’t it, officer?” “I guess the dog’s dead, your Honor,” said the officer appealed to. “She showed me the hide and feet of a dog, and said it was the one what bit the little boy here.” “Did you skin your dog?” asked the court in astonishment. “Yah, certain.” “What for?” “Because wo want de meat.” ‘ ‘ Want the meat ? What for ?” “To eat, of course. Me boil de meat, and den it is ready. Mine husband have lung disease: und he say dat dog meat is good for him. So it is eat.” “There certainly is no doubt of the death of that dog, and such being the case my jurisdiction ends,” half soliloquized his Honor as he thought over the little wom an’s strange statement. “O, yes—yes, you may go, your husband is discharged. I’m satisfied that the dog’s dead,” and with a “Tankee, schon,” she left the dock, smiling and happy. Mrs. Maurice Hammermiller, like Miss Nina Van Zandt, keeps a number of dogs. Mrs. Hammermiller lives at No. oil Uhland street and her husband works for Kuh, Nathan & Fischer. Uhland street is a queer, little Y-shaped alley up in the Fifteenth Ward, with the stem of the Y inserted at about No. 151 Clybourn avenue. Mrs. Ham inermiller's dogs annoy the neighbors some what, just as Miss Van Zandt’s did. The apparently utilitarian character of Mrs. Hammermiller’s fad led a reporter to call on that lady last evening. In this city, where beef anil pork aro so plentiful, and where whiteftsh and sea turtle can be had almost for the asking, dog meat is hardly ever heard of. It is not quoted in the market. Nobody fattens dogs for the stock yards. The very sausages are made out of pork in this city. Mrs. Hammermiller was found on the front steps of her residence surrounded by her family—a family <if at least two succes sive generations. She is a little, weazened old party, with a complexion like a last year’s apple. When before Justice Kesston she claimed to bo unable to sneak English, and her evidence was given through an in terpreter. But she talked English pretty well to the reporter, and when she got en tangled in an English idiom her daughter, a smart young woman, who was nursing a year-old baby, chipped in and helped her out: “Mr. Hammermiller is sick, isn’t he?” the reporter asked. “Consumption, I under stand r “He ain’d got no gonsumption mit him vat I knows of,” replied Mrs. Hammermil ler. a little tartly. “He vas sick mit a cough, but he's potter alretty.” “What is it you want:” asked the young woman with the baby. “1 was told Mr. Hammermiller had eaten dog's flesh to cure him of consumption, and 1 wanted to know if it cured him,”said the reporter. “Dr dog was a good healthy dog,'’ said Mrs Hammermiller, “und I eaten him niino selluf.” “Ate him all yourself?” “I fried him dose days, und I odder days him boiled, und he was a goot dog, und dor children some of him cat, und 1 eat him, und we all of us him cat. Ho was a goot tog.” “Is dog’s flesh healthy!” “Yah. Mine 1 irudder in Germany he toils mo of rich peoples what cat dogs. W often dogs eat in Germany. Hi? fat I rub it on mine breast. It is good to cure sick peo ples. Mine man he have a cough, aud spit, spit,cough,cough -last winter il was—and he took some dog and ho spit it alt up and was potter. It cures dipteery and bronehits, or vut you call it.’’ “Did you give some of the dog to the children ?" . , , . ■ ‘ Yah. He va ? a goot tog. Igi vo him to dor children und cat him mine-elf.” “Come into the house, mother,” said Ihe young woman with the baby. “What is all this about? What is he asking you things for ?” “He’s a police, ain’t it?” said the old lady, looking at the re|iorter with a large note of interrogation in her fai-e. The reporter said ho was interested in dogs, and that it ftas beautiful weather for thus time of the year, and then ho came away.

From the Perry ( Ga .) Journal. Twenty years ago, in 1867, Mr. S. 11. Rumpli conceived the idea of cultivating peaches aud other fin its for profit. He was then a lad of about 16 years of age, inex perienced in fruit growing, but full of de termination to find out for himself if his scheme could be made profitable. His neigh bore tried to dissuade him by argument and ridicule, but he persisted. His first venture w-as the purchase of a few varieties of choice peach trees. The first crop from these trees was a surprise to all the neighbors, a id soon “Sam Rumph's peaches” were rei og.iizedas the best in the neighborhood. Hi; neigh bors wanted to buy some trees of th) same sort. He then decided to increase his stock of trees, and in order to do this an a re was planted with seeds from peach Rees grow ing in tho old fields on the farm. These young sprouts were utilized as grafting stock for his choice varieties. When these grated and budded trees grow a year, he was enabled to offer a few for sale, and thus orignated the famous Willow Rake Nursery, superior to which there is no fruit nursery in tho South Mr. Humph has con tinued as he began, relying chiefly upon his own judgment, proved by experience. W il low Lake Nursery, as our readers Know, is in Houston county, about twelve miles west of Perry, and about four miles east of Mar shallville. As may bo supposed, the name was derived from a body of water with wil low trees on its banks. A recent visit dis closed tho fact that the w r ater has disap peared, but a large willow tree still marks the spot. The nursery has become famous, and is to-day a most pleasant and profitable monument to the energy, perseverance, hon esty and good judgment of Mr. Rumpli. From the trees sold from the first acre of peach trees, Mr. Rumpli began to appre ciate that there was something in the fruit business, and every year since his nursery acreage lias b:en increased. From Ito 2, to 5, to 10, until now ho has about 60 acres in the nursery fruit trees, berries and grapes, and has for sale this fall $30,000 worth of stock. This nursery stock con sist of 48 varieties of apples, oO of peaches, 13 of peare, 5 of plums, 16 of grapes, 3 of quinces, 3 of mulberries, 4 of figs, S of strawberries; 3 of raspberries, in all 153 va rieties that he is willing to recommend as be ing adapted for market and home use in the South. He has other varieties with which lie is experimenting. Mr. Rumpli personally supervises the bud ing and grafting of his young trees, doing much of this work with his own hands. He does not sell a tree that he is not abso lutely satisfied is true to name and in a healthy condition. In.this way he has es tablished a record for honesty and integ rity that places him at the head of tho list of nursery men. Besides the nursery business Mr. Rumoh raises fruits extensively for market, lie originated the celebrated Elberta peach, tho host market peach now grown, and the El beata fruit farm, belong to himself and Mr. B. T. Moore, his father-in-law, contains 20,- 000 trees on 11N acres. His acreage in fruits, besides the nursery, amounts to about 400 acres. His Cleveland orchard, containing 20,(XX) trees, has iiaid 10 per cent, on the in vestment on daily 4, and shipping not through with. "H'/ie transplanting of this orchard was finished the day President Cleveland was inaugurated. Two years ago he sold for SSOO the wild goose plums from three-fourths of an acre; trees 2 years old. He ships trees and fruits North, South, East and West. In his orchard he has grafted, buildod and seedling trees 20 years old, still thrifty, and in good bearing condition. This year only those trees on land with clay sub-soil retained their fruit; the cold killed all fruits ou other trees, therefore his sales of fruit this year will lie comparative ly light. He shipped strawberries from same plants continually from April 10 to July 10, this year. Mr. Rumph evaporates his inferior fruit, makes vinegar from his refuse apples; makes wine from the grapes he does not ship, and keeps apples forborne use from one crop un til the next crop is ready for use. Ho makes his own shipping crates. He is, in fact, ful ly equipped lor the fruit business in every particular. His hands are well trained, some of them having been in his employ fifteen years. His chief man, a white man, has been with him thirteen years.
