A BUSINESS ABOUT WHICH MOST PEOPLE KNOW VERY LITTLE. the Process of Mannfactnrc 2* Not So Simple Xislu Ke' Imn^iitcd From the Low Price of the FinlHlicd Product?Hoav They Are Mode. Anionic the little things seen in daily life about wliich most i>eople knowvery little is the common, ordinary clay pipe. In almost every eig;ar shop window, in the mouth of every third laborer met and even in the nursery this snow white little instrument of counorv ;iuu umuscuitin. ,? uv. o?.w*. yet few know, for instance, that most of the clay pipes sold in this city of domestic make are manufactured in New Jersey. Wood bridge is the name of the queer little town given over to this odd manufacture, anil a trip through one of the factories of that settlement, to follow the pipe from the time it is dug as clay to the time it appears ready for the market, is interesting. Looking at the chunks and lumps of clay as they are transported from the banks to the factories, one would hardly believe that the snowy, cheap little article could have been manufactured from material so different In color. The color of tlds clay before It is burned is dark gray, like cement; nor Is the process of manufacturing one of these pipes as simple as might be imagined from the absurdly low price. As the clay comes into the.factory it is divided, finely ami put to soak In water for ten (o twelve hours. Tills soaking is to divide the clay to its smallest possible particles so that In the ensuing process It will not cake or lump and will work smoothly and *wu;Jy. This attained; the clay is put into a "pug** mill, where it is stirred by machinery until it gets stlffer and stltTor. finally becoming as stiff as lough. In this state the clay Is roughly molded into lumps and distributed anv ng the pipemaUcrs, who begin the first stop In the life of the humble Croat! -n. ? h-a.suing a small chunk of clay In ch hand, the artist begins work to fashion roughly two pipes at the same hue.

Except that the pipe Is of its original gray color and soft and supplied with the burs" where the molded ends nre Joined, it is now practically finished. Then comes the process of shaving off the burs. At this stage the pipe still retains considerable dampness, so that the clay may be cut smoothly. While at tl>e same time a wire Is again drawn through the stem, so as to Insure proper draft.. All Is now ready for the pipe in its final state except that it needs to be burned. For this purpose It Is put into a cylindrical vessel twelve Inches high and as much In diameter. This is known as a "sagger/* Set one against the other, the pipes are adjusted solidly in the sagger. which will hold something like n gross of pipes properly packed.

PAUL MORE rrTc ni/ATinM ucio uvaiiuii "THE MUMMY AND THE HUMMING BIRD" MAKES A BIG HIT AT THE COURT THEATRE. Paul Gilmore scored a great hit Saturday night at the Co ;rt Theatre in the clever play "The Mummy and the Humming Bird." by Isaac 1'enderson, an English journalist. -Mr. Gilmore gave a superb interpretation of the j leading role, hord Luruley, the "Mummy," and he played the part most intelligently and artistically. He was strong and masterly in the climacteric scenes and demonstrated his right to rank among th^> most talented young actors on the American stage. At the end of the tilled act he received an ovation in the way of three curtain calls, and finally responded to demands for a speech. He made a graceful effort, thanking the audience for their stimulating applause and declaring it was the finest incentive for an actor to do his best work. Mr. Gilmore has splendid support. John Martin as "Guiseppe," the Silician organ grinder, was most natural and effective and came in for hi en praise with the star. Mr. Souths: d as "Count D'Orelli," the "Humming Bird," acquitted himself '.villi great credit in the difficult role and showed that he was a finished artist. Miss Drew as "Lady L?umley" was very satisfactory, and the rest of the company was well up to the mark. The costuming and scenery were fine.? Wheeling Telegraph, May *M. SOM E APPLE Hi STORY. IVlany Western Orchards Started By "Apple-Seed Johnny." The first apple trees planted in America were imported by the Dutch settlement at New York in 1G14. Apple trees were also known to have been growing at Jamestown, Va., as early as 1622. Until within the last half century apples were grown almost solely for cider making, as is the case to-day in France. As hard cider will produce cl run ken n ess and a horrible kat/.enjammer, William Penn advised his colonists in Pennsylvania ro cultivate indigenous fruits alone, | as apples were then used almost exclusively for making cider or apple j jack. Many of the orchards of the pioneers of the Middle West were grown from s'eeds obtained in a peculiar way. Some man whose full name has boon forgotten, and who is remembered only by the appellation of "Apple-Seed Johnny," t ?aveled through the West and scattered hearty welcome at every cabin door. The last decade or two has shown wonderful development of the large commercial apple orchards in the West, and the industry has now assumed vast proportions. Apples, for instance, are exported to England and many foreign countries. Apple cores froni the big drying: establishments are purchased by Eastern buyers and shipped to France to be used in the adulteration of wines and champagne. A large cart of this champagne and wine is snipped hajfk to America in. 'wine casks made" a;|Poplar Bluff; Mo., in the largest bar. Ad factory' m the "jifWV ?
