"I want you to go through one of tho
fish curing and packing establish

a reporter a few days since. "I doubt
if you have any idea of the work that is
done in one of them. Great changes
have been made in the business. Years
ago curing lish was synonymous with
dirt and oll'cnsive smells. All that has
leen done away with, and the curing
and packing of lish is done with as
much regard to clean'iness as is the

1 shment of Messrs. John Tow & Son,
the representative asked the proprie
tors to show him about, which they
kindly did. The establishment covers
two or three acres. The lirst thing
which attracts one's attention is
a huge reservoir which is tilled from an
artesian well by power furnished by a
windmill. 'We are obliged to
have an abundance of pure wa
ter," tad Mr. Pew, "because
thorough wash ng is of the utmost
importance in this business. At the
v.hnnes of the company were two
ships unloading salt. "That ship,"
J ointing to one of them, ' is one of the
ast of the famous fleet built by Mo
Kay." The salt used is of the cleanest
and best qualiiy. great care being taken
to get the best and to remove nom it
all impurities. A cargo of mackerel
was just in, and a crew of men in one
building were at work repacking them.
Whore they are caught they are put
into barrels with little salt and regard
less of size. In the curing establish
ment they are all taken out, classified,
re-alted and packed into barrels, half
barrels and kits. Large houses were
filled with hogsheads of cod and other
lish in pickle. These lish are not sold
in that form, but cargoes are usually
kept in that condition as tho most con
venient and safest prior to drying.
The lish are dried on frames, those of
this firm covering half or two-thirds of
an acre, and one dare not say how
many thousand pounds of fish can be
cured at one time thereon. The pack
ing of dry fish is comparalively a new
industry. In days of yore the dry fish
was thrown down iti most any place in
the retail store where it would not dry
lip or lose anything in weight
All this has been changed by the in
trodiiciion of packing and boxing. It
is also a great saving. Heretofore it was
dillicult to sell the small fish; now that
the skin and the bones are removed
the sin all ones are just as good as the
larger. On the second floor of one
building were over thirty men, women
and boys engaged in cutting, curing
and packing dry lish. It was a model
workroom, light, with the cool breezes
from the ocean coming in at the win
dows. From a pile ot the fish men
With strong hands took the fish and re
moved tlie bones in less time than it
takes one to tell it. Others seize it and
pull oh the sk n. Another gang cut
them into pieces about two and one-half
-by six inches. This is done on large
lilden divided bjto squares, tlmush
which the knives are run. Girls next
put the pieces into packages weighing
two pounds or moro. These paokagos
are next passed along to men who put
thein into presses and reduce them to
tne smallest space possible. Then girls
take thorn and put twine about them.
The bunches are then carefully salted
and put into boxes, which in turn aro
nailod up and carried out. The
Gloucester houses pack fish for special
customers to all parts or tue country,

The wood for the boxos is pino, of

The boxes are printed at tho
curing establishment on a job press run
by gas power. The Pews print lifty or
sixty different brands. Other grades of
fish are skinned, boned and cut in two
or three pieces and shipped iu larger
boxes, according as ordered. What

LONDON DOCK LABORERS.
The Efforts Made lljrthe Unemployed ti
In sunshine or shower, fog or fnu
weather, the approaches to the do, k.
and wharves of the metropolis are
every morning thronged by crowds of
eager, anxious men, struggling nay,
in many cases lighting like wild beasts
to obtain work within the gates. As
the hour draws near for tho ringing ol
the great bell announcing the com
mencement of work a crowd of often
a couple of thousand men press around
the principal entrance to the London
docks, and as the big gates swing slow
ly open the mighty mass of humanity
rushes forward like an overwhelming

but there is always the chance ol
obtaining a ticket, and the men
strive to clutch one of the precio is
tnnsmans wun intense ana passionate
eagerness. 1 hoy push and jOilic and
struggle, leaping on each other's
shoulders, and lighting andwresiling
in the mad rush like famishing animals
rather than human beings. Tho most
desperate determination is written on
every face, and there is small thought
iu tho mind of any man of that surg
ing crowd for any one but himself.
For work means food-poor and
scanty, no doubt but still something
to keep the terrible wolf from tlie door.
Failure means semi starvation or
Hut of the crowds who struggle and
fight at the gates, frequently not more
than one-third are selected, and the re
mainder, beating their sad fate with as
much philosophical fortitude as they
can muster perhaps it is stony de
spair, rather turn di.-consolatcly
away, some to seek work at other
places which open later and others to
wait for "calls" which mav occur al
any time during the day. Thus a vis
itor strolling through the lino docks
and adm ring the shipping and im
mense quanta es of merchandise pi'rd
on every hand is suddenly arrested by
the strange sight of a sea of white,
anxious faces pressed wistfully against
the bars on a side entrance. Yes, mon
are st 11 waiting there for any call ol
laborers that may come during this
day. And presently, as you wait, ths
superintendent appears, and cries:
One man wanted!"
Instantly all the watchers spring up
like caged animals when food is
brought them, yelling, shouting and
extending their hands. They leap on
each other's backs and clamber up to
tho topmost rails; and all this feverish
excitement is to obtain one little metnl
ticket perhaps for one hour's work,
entitling the owner to tivepenee or six
pence at most!
One out of the large number receives
the ticket apparently by chance rather
than by any other manner of selection,
and then the noise subsides, and the
men wait on, patient dogged, hungry
eyed, as I oforo.
' At another'time a call will come for
two men, and the same scene will occur
again, and so on throughout the day.
But of the great numbers who crowd
the gates in the r desperate struggle to
obtain employment only a very few
comparatively can ever be engagod.
One in every three or four appears to
be the average number who obtain
work. The Quiver.

weakly, "if I am fortunate enough to
obtain what I seek, I pledge m self to

you understand," he was asked a little
later, "that there is no salary attached
to the office to which you asp re?"
"No what?" "No salary; not a cent."
"Then the office can go to thunder!"

Somo of the distinguishing marks ol
burlosquo tho tags by which thocomio
artists make' their victims known to
the public have been so long in uso
thoy can scarcely be traced to their in
ventors. For, im lanco, thore is the familiar
and extraordinary figure of our Uncle
Sam. Every American acknowledges
k.nsliip with him, but few know how
he came into existence. Even some of
the artists who have dopictod him, year
after year, iu hi different moods and
attitudes, know nothing of his origin.
After making many interrogatories in
regard to him and considerable research
into his genealogy I learned that an
English caricaturist created him in do
r's on long ago. The intent was to em
body all tho ignorance, egotism, crude,
ness, pretension and asserlivenoss ot
the saucy young country iu tho quaint
li:uie of the old Yankee. But there
was a dignity in tho tall, angular, self
satislied old man which his creators
neither meant nor saw. Tho people of
the new country saw it, however, and
took him to their hearts. They adopted
the idea of the beneficent undo, and
put him. into songand story. Then they
u copted him as lie was portraved, thin
and elongated, long-haired, hatchot
faeed, and wearing raiment tho like of
which never was seen on land or sea-
striped pantaloons of nn economical
o it, a swallow tailed coat of most an
tiquated design, a high hat that is a
challenge to all modern hoadwear, and
a vest gaudier than a tropical bird.
This I ecame tho familiar figure, which
in eomio art represented our beloved
country. Tho idea took delin to form;
it became fixed in our fiini.r. it waj a
creation dostinod to livo and to grow.
Uncle Sam became a fact, a reality, a
part of our-elves and our history.
He was first made familiar to his peo
ple in I'd u tec Kotion. a comic paper
that flourished more than a quartor of
a century ago. but has long since
climbed the golden stair. Nast was
the lii st artist to lift our revered uncle
out of ridiculo and contempt, endow
li i hi with proper dignity, and make
him a distinctive and honored charac
ter, though he claims no credit for it.
lie says ho remembers him as far ba k
as he can remember anvthiug in tho
way of pictures. Tho other artists as
sert that Nast has made him what ho
is a kind, wi-e. courageous, quick
witted, sunny -spirited, dignified, lov
a'de old man, keenly ac ive to every
thing allect ug the interests of bis peo
ple in short, a gentleman.
it is interesting to see how the char
acter of l ucle Sam has developed with
mo character ol lus people One real
izes this by compa-iiig some of the old
portraits of him with somo of tho more
modorn. In Nast's allegorical sketches
we have scon him in all the phn-es of
bis strong, spiiited, ami noh'e charac
ter. He h is wept with Columbia ovor
the bier of heroes; he lias held fast to
the old Hag when it was riddled with
shot a id shell, but has turned his pray
head aside n humiliation when the pub
lic trusts wore betrayed aid honors
abused; ho lias mourned over his slain
sons as thev lav in the valleys, on the
hills, and by the rivers of the South.
His keen wit has mercilessly punctured
shams, and his big heart overllowed
with sympathy when the children of his
adoption sull'oro I. Dear, quaint grand

How the Affrlrii are Conducted In 6i
It may sound strange, if I mention
the fact that notwithstanding the low
m arriageable ago fixed by law, elope
ments ure common. It i truo they
are of a quite peculiar sort and they
m glut be diiided into elopements with
and elopements without the consent of
the parents on cither side. This cus
tom so illustrates tho character of the
peasantry ot all regions, that I must
not dismiss it wilh too briot a mention.
Elopement with consent is an import
ant matter. Tho voting pair are agreed
and have the full ncqu esi ence of the
parents on both sides. But every roar
r ago calls for a wedding, and a farm
er's wedding is. under ord narv circum
stances, no child's p'ay. The rela
tives and friends must be invited from
distances extending to liftv or a hun
dred miles. The substantial part of
the feast is rather it secondary I
it ii ii ir to tne larmor ricniv pro
vided with farm products and enttlo.
but then drink must be furnished, nnd
tho National drink it dear, and will be
consumed on such occa-ions iu im
mense quantities. In order to escape
the expense of this provision, which
would be borne equally bv both fami
lies, the parents of the bridegroom ad
vise him to elope wiih his beloved, and
her parents advise her to consent to
the elopement After roeeivinj; the
blessings of tho crafty parents, the
voting people steal away i-ito the bush.
On the next day the friends sot up a
cry as of murder, beat around for a
while, and laugh in their sleeves. The
oung couple must, of courso, come
back after a little while and receive
forgiveness, for there can be no wedding-feast
after such a "scandal." The
latter is confined to a narrow circle,
and the brandy is saieJ. Dr. Alfred

HORSEY YOUNG LADIES.
Now York Girls Developing a Taste for
Our young ladies are not only devel
oping horsey tastes, but thoy nro devel
oping a taste for turf gambling that
would make their grandparents turn in
thoirgraves if thoy know of it Ayouug
lady who can not talk horse nowadays
shows that sho is not in the social whirl
pool. She must know tho points ot a
horse as readily as any jockey. I was
amused the other day on tho train by a
conversation of two young ladies very
ladylike ami quiet girls they were, too
who, afterdiscussiug Schumann'ssongs,
began to talk horso, and they seemed to
be as familiar with ono as wilh tho
other. "Were you at the exhibition in
Madison Square Garden?" asked one of
tiro othor. "No," she replied; "unfor
tunately I was out of town nt tho time."
"That was too bad," said tho other,
"you missed a splendid show. .1 have
noverseen finer cattle. Tho yearlings
looked exactly like three-year-olds!''
Tho other expressed her disappointment
at not having socn those wonderful
yearlings, but sho had seen particularly
lino three-year-olds that sho thought
were going to develop into lino trotters.
Tho other day I was driving through
Central l'ark and tho handsomest turn
out that passed me was driven by a lady.
It was nono of your villago carts or Vic
torias, but was a genuine Stanhope gig,
with footmen up iH'hind. and tho liulv
on tho box holding tho reins of n pair tit
prancing steeds; no ponies, mind you,
lint full-sized horses, and frisky ones at
that. What I liked about it was that
she was such a quiet lookiug lady.
There was nothing at all horsey in her
appearance. Sho woro a simple, tight
fitting coat nnd modest bonnet, and was,
1 should think, about thirtv-tivc or thirty-seven
years of age. There is Miss
Daisy Cameron, who drives a pair of
tost horses; but sho drives them to a Vic

Stanhope. Miss Fussy Uriwo alsodrives

This is on tho whole a surprising
scheme of tho English Salvation Army
people to raise $100,tXK to send fallen
women to this country. But though tho
English are showing as great a zeal in
tho endeavor to rid themselves of this
perplexing problem as they did to solve
tho pauper problem awhile ago, tho
scheme will not work. This country
can hardly be expected to take uihui
itself the risks of so tremendous an ex
periment and if England insists upon
shirking the task, she will probably have
to turn it over to huiio of her own eu
ones. Providence Journal.
