Anionic the little things seen in daily

clay pipe. In almost every eig;ar shop

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

words: (1 Tim. 5:17) "Let the
priests that, rule well be Esteemed

"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
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.?

SOM E APPLE Hi STORY.
IVlany Western Orchards Started By
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
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.

wine is snipped hajfk to America in.
