y.' 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."

THE WAY OF A GLOVE
FROM THE RAW SKIN TO THE DAINTY
FINISHED PRODUCT.

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

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. ^
