The Tailor Made Salt
In fitting a cloth suit the modes of
fittiug peculiar to the tailor are many
in number but good in result The
measurements are numerous the first
fitting is an ordinary cotton lining the
eecond one a silklming the third one
the silk and tlie material the fourth ouo
the almost finished bodice which usual
ly needs then only a few mistakes recti
fied and there is the finished bodice for
the head tailor to eeinifa entirety No
critic is so severe as is the master of the
establishment and a slight wrinkle will
cause him to order the taking > apart of
the bodice and the making it so that fc
fits like the proverbial glove The same

FAST OYSTER CFENL1S
Worfcm n In New York City WIio Talte
Ojhters Out nPThlr jhell
The crack oysterjmeners of New York
can easily hold their own against the
rest of the world as lightning opera
tors asthey are Called W
One of the veterans is Dick Balmer
Who lias opened 9000 oysters in a day of
twelve hours anil he can now average
7300 in n day of twelve or thirteen
hours work
Mike Foley who may well be termed
a lightning operator and is now in his
fifties has opened as many as 0300
oysters in one day and on ordinarvdays
pushes lrijnself he can easily get
away with 8000 oysters Of course the
oyfeters opened are large and small just
as they come as if they were all small
and round the opening could be done
much more rapidly
John Lahey is good for an average of
8000 a day and so is an opener known
among the oystermen as iDeafGeorge
Jn a trial of speed in opening 500 oysters
John Eahe probably cannot be beaten
To open oysters rapidly of course re
quires a great deal of experience in
handling them but there also seems to
be a knack about it that every oyster
man cannot acquire Some men for in
stance can only open 4001 oysters a day
and they will not go much above that
after years of work in this line
The twentyseven men employed by
Alex Frazer on the North river will
average 5000 oysters a day which is a
much higher average than is reached by
the majority of the crews around New
York These men also can turn out
when required 130000 oysters a day in
all which is 15000 ojsters above the
average of 5000 a man There are very
few oSter scows in the market can
equal this average from week to week
It must also be considered that on some
days work begins at 5 oclock in the
morning and on others at G or 8 oclock
Theio was an oyster opening match
about a year a o botweonMike Foley
and Jack Gillon The match was to de
cide which man was the quicker at
opening 1000 oysters Gillon won in
37 minutes beating his opponent b only
seven oysters Foley has opened 11200
oysters at one sitting
Dick Balmer has appeared in sixteen
oyster opening matches and lost only
two of them Most of tho contests were
over the opening of 100 oysters At ono
time Balmer opened 100 oysters in 4 min
utes and 22 seconds which is now the
best straight knife record Balmer
has also opened 1000 oysters in 55 min
utes Tho two matches in which he was
defeated he lost to John Gillon The
first match was best two out of thrrj
records in opening 100 oysters but owing
to a dispute Balmer retiredfrom th
contest leaving the match t iGillonAt
the second match Balmer was beaten by
eight oysters
Among the lightning operators on Wil
liam Fosters scow the most conspicuous
undoubtedly is Black Frank as Frank
Barrett who is as white a man as any
other white man in this country 4 is
dubbed by his associates Mr Barrett
has spent a good many yearns in the
south and from his jissociation there in
a business vay with tho darkies he came
to be called Black Frauk New York
