Queer Maze Barroom. |p Bangor (Maine) Cor. Xow York Sun. County Attorney Bertram L. Smitli v has just marie a now record in his ' efforts to enforce the law against liquor soiiing here. This week his sj officers succeeded in getting into a ' ' place known as the Maze, which for many years has defied them. The Maze was conducted by Charles ; Tremblay, a Canadian Frenchman, and was ingenuously arranged, so much so that Tremblay used to say: "The man who fin's his way in dose place an' catch man lak me was tarn smart man." The place was laid out by an architect who knew his business. The har; room was in the rear ul" a vacant store. with a peep hole giving a view of the street door. When a customer entered the door an electric bell jingled in the barroom. and the bartender looked out at the peep hole to inspect the person - who hail entered. If satisfied that all was safe, he pulled a wire that slid a holt in ait. oaken door leading inio a Ifomdor at one side, and the custoni?r entered there, proceeding through '/ ' ' that passage, brilliantly lighted, to an j C,'i , i other rloor. and another, to a second ! J'l passage, also lighted. -;v Presently, after passing through v some more ordinary doors, the cms. ? - tomer came to a vestibule, with two ^ floors, so arranged that one could not be opened until the other had been i V shut. Then came the last door?th?ninth in the series?leading into the ^ bar-room. jr.." - The latter apartment was furnished simply with one arm chair for the V . proprietor, and a sink. Water was V always running in the sink, chloride of lime was there to kill rho smell of liquors that might bo spilled, and a big bottle of whiskey stood in (ho sink near the snout. i? jgT:; When the customers became drunk or noisy they were thrown cur at a it side door into an alley, ami this floor t- was made of oaken planks, banded L and rivited with steel. To enter the Maze bar-room re- j quired considerable time, even il the person entering was entirely welcome. By the time the sheriff could set in the stock would be washed down the & sink and Proprietor Tremblay would be sitting in his arm-chair, looking innocent and- happy and reading about p?y . the war in the East." Governor White, in an interview in the Cincinnati Enquirer, is quoted a : IJlst'-v.'. saying: "The whole fight in our part y |?!P&S in West Virginia at this time is as to " whether my administration shall bo en???- '. dorsed. Further than that 1 c!o not |K"\ - care to say. Secretary of State DawButi' '1 - son is the administration candidate tho gubernatorial nomination."

Vtj THE WAY OF A GLOVE FROM THE RAW SKIN TO THE DAINTY FINISHED PRODUCT. It Taken SInch Time nnd Work anil 3Iany I'rocesscH Ke?ore the Cutter* nsd'Sctvc?M Bc^ln Their Work?1The Tolling Finishing Touche*. Relatively few buyers of gloves are familiar with the many separate processes which a glove must undergo before it is handed over the counter, and this article aims to describe clearly and simply how raw material is gathered and fashioned into il - ilnislied article. AH classes of skins treated differently, but for purposes illustration let us take the ''mocha." or *'un clrcssed kid." "Mocha" is a eouunerclai name, and the first known of "mocha" skins was when a car;.o of coffee was shinned from Arabia. la the car go were two bales of si-;Ins of mi unknown variety; hence the nam was adopted as "mocba." This skin lias gained a reputation for .fineness of col- ; or and finish and for durability. It is an American production which foreign tanners have vainly attempted to imitate for several years, but. owing 1o climatic conditions they have never succeeded. Mochas come from -Arabia arid are a species of a haired sheep growing a short woolly hair. The skins are taken off the animal by the natives in a manner peculiarly their own. They are opened at the back sufficiently to get bold of the pelt, and then the skin is turned and pulled off tlie animal without a cut in the length till the head is reached, when it is cut off square at the neck. The skins are stretched on sticks and hunt; i:p in the sun to dry anrl cure. They are then poisoned with arsenic to prevent worms from breeding during their long voyage to America, where upon arrival in bales they are selected for weight and quality and repacked in compressed bales of 200 to f>00 skins each, according to the weight of the skins, and are sold to the dealers and tanners by the piece, the weight of the skins ruling the price. One of the reasons why American leather dressers have made such progress in dressing these skins is that for many years the American market; lias received the entire product and by handling them in such large quantities is able to determine the style of tanning and finishing; for which they are best suited. When the skins arrive at the tannery thev are counted and subdivided by practiced hands. They are then put into vats of clear fresh water to soak out the poison and other foreign substances. They are usually kept in these vats twenty-four hours and taken out and drained and put back i:i clear fresh water again for another day or two. when they are removed ami put in the lime vats, where they remain for three or four weeks, but are lifted about every ten days in the interval. Tliey are then haired and lTized and after being thoroughly washed in plain water and fiien in pure are put into the tan vats, where they stay about a week. Afterward they are liung up in a liot room to dry. When tl>o roughly dried they are taken down and stored away in a cool room to lie "in the crust" for three or four weeks, when they are again handled to put the finish on thorn.. They now go to the glove manufacturing department, where they are piled on latticed shelves, about twelve dozen in a pile, to allow them to ago. Care must be taken in piling up the skins so that air can circulate around and between all bundles, and it is very important that the room be kept thoroughly tlrv so that the skins do not gather moisture. The skins must he taken <lown and shaken out frequently and changed about so that they get a uniform amount of fresli air. The skins should be kept in this state for sit least three months, and six months would be much better. They arc then turned over to the assorters, who usually work at tables facing the north light ami examine every skin minutely for quality, weight and fineness and must determine Cor what colors they are host adapted. To inexperienced eyes this looks like a very easy task, but assorting skins in the white is one of the most dilticult and responsible positions in a glove factory. It; is on the judgment of these | men that large amounts of money that ! are invested in stock months in adi vanee of actual demand are lost or | made. After assorting for colors the j skins are sent to the coloring department. where the surplus tan is washed | out. Then They are egged and when i dry are iiiiished on a tine bucktail j wheel. The color is put on. after which I they are finished again on the bucktail i and after being properly aired and | dried out are ready for the nssorters | in the glove department. who assort the linished stock fur the classes oC gloves they are best adapted to be cut [into. When a cutter receives n batch of ikins his lirst duty is to examine thorn carefully and see if he can produce the quantity of gloves they are taxed to cut. lie then dampens them to prepare them for "dewiing," which is the term used for removing the llesh from the skins loft on by the dresser, ami also to make the skins as nearly uniform in weight as possible. The skin is spread on a marble slab to its fullest extent in one direction, and the cutter shaves or pares off the llesh a little at a time with a bread, flat knife, which is kept as sharp as a razor, with a steel applied to the knife after nearly every stroke. When the skins are dowled they are again dampened, then the cutter proceeds to measure off his gloves and thumbs, and after cutting them to the required sizes he takes them to a man who measures them with a redelc or bhie mark and returns them to the cutter with the paper patterns of the required sizes. The cutter must then pull down his trank to the patterns, faatch his forcettes, quirks, binding, etc., and when his lot is cut complete hand -the trnTfks Joock to_tbe foreman. a-TTb gTv<?s tiibm to rbe pruiaii to cut In the press with stc-el patterns.

And here again j I ;m ; ;; itnowicuge art.* a uig ; o I iii the way the ;;!ovos look to ! th (1::ui?l ''rinscTiici'. A poor glove ti W'-I? ! id off is a better seller at any j f? ti:ic* than good glovcs badly laid off. j y Tl:e average eonsaiuor buys on looks | in preference to merit.

The glove business is not an b easy one, and only the inventiveness s of the American manufacturer anil the b aptitude of his workmen enable him t< to keep up with the pace set by- lils f foreign rivals. As it is lie is constant- n j Jy improving I lis goods and methods of t< I manufacturing and gaining a distinct y : prestige in the eyes of the consumer, a I American gloves are worth o place in any shop.?Haberdasher. s p Filthy ri-X-Iig. ; Vl An Amorican in the orient writes: a "Peking is said to be tho filthiest city b in the world, and it is. The streets, ' - - - - - * . i. t which apparently nave never ueen repaired. fairly swarm with human and animal life; caravans of stately cam- ^ els from Mongolia and Tibet: the I'c- H kingesc curt, a creation of its own. a with no springs, but drawn by sleek s mules in gayly caparisoned harness, with outriders in mushroom hats and s red plumes, the mafoo running along- a side or mounted 011 small donkeys; ^ coolies without number bearing bur- s dens on their beads or shoulders; rich- 3" ly adorned sedan chairs bearing some s mandarin or high Chinese official; the 0 biggest Chinamen ridding the smallest s of donkeys with jangling bells; and through it all, underneath and around, swarmed a mass of Chinese men. women and children, the Mantchoo wo- 0 men in gorgeous apparel, with their ^ peculiar headdress and with faces ^ rouged ami powdered. Such a sight cannot ho seen in any other country nor in any other city?a combination ri of gorgeousness and tilth, magnificence a and squalor, unequnlcd and almost un * believable." ^ An Eiesnnt Amusement. In his description of sports in England Thomas Strutt, who died 1'UO ^ years ago. described the game of throw- 11 ing at cocks, then a favorite amuse- * rnent at fairs. The cock was fixed * by both legs to a peg, and would lie a throwers paid so much a sliy, just as they do now at a cocoa nut. only the s cock was more difficult to hit. because ^ he dodged the missile. The woru "cockshy" is a survival of this elegant, a | amusement. Another version of it ^ | was "to put the cock into an earthen i vessel made for the purpose, and to place liiin in sucn a position mat nis head and tail might be exposed to view. The vessel, with the bird in it. j was then suspended across the street v about twelve or fourteen feet from the n trrournl, to l>e thrown at by such as q vliose to make a trial of their skill. t T wo pence was paid for four throws. ? and he who broke the pot and delivered c the cock from his confinement had him s for a reward." p \ To Rend the Xeiv TeHtr.menJ. ^ "A groat- many people are under the impression that it takes a long wliile t to read The Now Testament," remarknd a Kansas City preacher the ? tlicr t day. "but, as a matter of fact, it only t I on u ires sixty hours for the average ] reader to read the entire book. or. in t other words, if a man were to read an c hour each day he would finish the book J inside of two months. I told this to a c business man once, and lie said he j didn't believe me. Thinking: it would be a ?ood plan to get foini to read it, I advised him to try it. and the result was that lie reported that he had read r everything in it within forty hours." IIIn Royal Dignity. ^ Tlio Siamese prince, who in the early ^ nineties was a member of what was, t then at any rate, the most cosmopolitan , coil care iu Oxford, found it very dilli- ^ cult to reconcile his autocratic notions ^ with the practice of undergraduates. ^ Being asked by the captain of the boats j to go down and do a little "tubbing," j he drew himself up to his full Are feet and replied, "When I go on the t river at Bangkok I have eighty slaves r to row tae." fi (.
