Among the many evils which are at tributed to the all-pervading, never-to-be escaped city dust, there is one which constitutes a grievance peculiar to pho tographers alone. It is the injury which the flying particles, sifting into the room through every ajperture, cause to the delicate films and sensitive plates, All films are made of preparations of gelatin, and a large proportion of the glnss plates now used are also coated with this substance, which, because of its soft, sticky nature, is particularly likely to attract every atom of dust in the surrounding air, The particles, however small, leave their impress in the form of opaque epots upon the sen sitive surface and seriously mar its per fection. To remove the damage a great amount of retouching is necessary, which is not only laborious nnd tire some, but which cannot always be sat isfactorily accomplished if the dust is very thick. What is known as the "car bon process" in photography is prob ably more easily injured by dust than any other, (because an extremely deli cate film of gelatin is used. Chiefly on account of this drawback the carbon process is seldom employed in this coun try, although photographs are made which reseirole the real carbon pic tures 6o closely in color that they are "carbon types." In England, where the carbon process is more common, it has become customary for London pho tographers to send their developing work out of town to be done, in order to escape the dust and smoke of the city, but this practice has not gained much ground here. - The photographers in this city, as a rule, perform their operations in the same building in which their studios ure situated, and for the sake of thus keeping the developing,process at home, they are obliged to be at great trouble in protecting it. Some of the methods employed for this purpose were men tioned to a Tribune reporter the other day by a well-known Broadway artist. "In the first place," he said, "we not only keep onr dark room itself, but the whole top floor in which it is situated, spotlessly clean. The floors are all oiled until there is not a crack in their surface to harbor dust, and they arc thoroughly washed every morning be fore we begin our day's work. All the tables, trays, and everything we use are kept equally clean. The windows, in stead of being in the side walls, where the wind would strike them and bear the dust in with it, are in the roof, and very- little dust can come in that way. All the cracks in the doors or around the window frames are stopped up, and we keep ..the-dark room tightly closed as much of the time as possible. With these precautions we manage to get alpng pretty well, but a certain;quanti ty of dust seems bound to creep in, and it causes us a good many hours of extra work in retouching." Practically the same struggle against dust is the experience of every photog rapher in the city. One remedy which has been tried occasionally with success consists in filling the room in which the plates are kept with steam for a few mo ments each morning. This usually suf fices to lay the dust for the entire day. N. Y. Tribune. .w VICTORIA'S REGAL RIGHT. Why tbe Niece of William IV. Waa Called to the Throne. a Several newspapers, in explaining1 to their readers how Queen Victoria came to suceceed William IV., say it was because she was his niece. That is the truth, but only half the truth, for Wil liam IV. had nephews and other nieces. George III.'b first, second, third and. fourth sons were respectively the prince of Wales, afterwards George IV., who died childless in 1830; Frederick, duke of York, who died in 1827, also without children; William, duke of Clarence, who died, William IV., June 20, 1837, without lawful issue, and Edward, duke of Kent and Strathearn, and earl of Dublin, who died January 23, 1820, aged 53, leaving as the sole issue of his mar riage with Princess Victoria of Lein ingen a baby daughter, now Queen Vic toria. The queen succeeded William' IV., not Bimply because she was his niece, but because she was the only child of the brother next to him in the order of succession. Had Queen Victoria had a brother, she would in all probability not have been a person age of historical celebrity, save in the contingency of succeeding him. Her rights .were those that devolved on her from her father. At the time she suc ceeded to the throne her uncles the dukes of Cumberland, of Sussex and Cambridge were living, younger brothers of her father and junior to him in the line of succession in the or der named. The duke of Cumberland (who became king of Hanover on the death of William IV.) was a man of such despotic tenper and principles that all England cherished the Princess Victoria as standing between it and his succession to the throne. He had lawful issue, as had the duke of Cam bridge. The duke of Sussex, a most estimable man, married twice, but these unions being repugnant to the provisions of the royal marriage act, his children were barred from the line of succession. From the revolution of 1688 rose the Jacobite party, made up of those who supported the cause of James II., his sons and descendants. The picturesque modern Jacobites do not recognize Queen Victoria, despite the fact that her succession is due to her Stuart blood, for she is a direct descendant of Elizabeth, daughter of James I., to whose heirs the title to the throne devolved by the act of set tlement on the death of Anne. Boston, Transcript. A New Foe to American Tree. 1 Specimens of a strange caterpillar discovered this spring on pear trees in Cambridge, Mass., are pronounced by Prof. Samuel Henshaw to be the "gold tail," or euproctis chrysorrhoea, hither to unknown as an inhabitant of this country, although it is found locally in England, and is "abundant in central end southern Europe." When numer ous, these caterpillars are Tery de structive, feeding on such trees and plants as the apple, pear, plum, haw thorn, bramble, elm, willow, beech, oak, hazelnut and hornbeam. At pres ent the invaders in Massachusetts are said to be confined to a limited area' in Somerville and Cambridge. The first specimens seem to have made their appearance a year ago, and thus far they have confined themselves to pear and apple trees. How they got across the ocean nobody apparently knows. It is suggested that Iby vigorous meas ures they may be stamped out. Youth's Companion. .
