of the men took an elephant hook
and endeavored to calm the excltt-u

very angry. With a remarkably quick

French O.ivernnitnt, nnd devoted to tho
pipiluctinn o tapestries and cm-pets.
The (iobclins are the Inrgcst nnd most

France, but In t lie entire world. Their

Tlie National mnmifnetory of tl:e Gobe
lins is now divided into three distinct
(eelloi.i the dre shops, tnpestry shops
and carpet wotk lios. The dyu shops,
or works, pruduce not only every kind
of color, but twenty to thirty dilTcrent
shades of each. While tunny of the
hangings worked fifty years' ago nru
nlte.idy laded, the factory is now able to
produce any color perfectly fast. Tills
great success is due to the' labors of the
eminent chemist, Clievreuil, who was
employed by the (jnvcriituenl to instruct
the Uohelini dyers. I,ri;e rooms are
devoted to tho high warps, upon which
tue tapestries are suspcuded as t lit; work
goes on, and some idea of tlio ex piisitu
nature and delicate character of the
work mty be gained from the fact tnt

The method of manufacturing tapes
tiles is as follows: The desigu is first
painted in oil colon of the tapestry to
be ibsaufsctureJ, after which a second
one, but of natural size, is painted, per
mitting to distinguish, besides the exact
size, the colors and gradations of the
future tapestry. The design is then
traced ou the back of tho warp with
pencils. Tho colors, or wefts, are then
dyed, prepared and assorted, ami are
wound separately on a spouliu mado of
boxwood, and shaped like a canoe

it is wound upon another cylinder in tho
lower part of the fritue. The artist ;
stands behind tie tapestry, aud with his
worsteds and silka at hand, begins to j
work in the different colors over the I
ground roarked with the tracings ol the
picture to be woven. The number of I
colors entering into a tapestry ntc-ssarly I
influences the quality, as upou I hi same
warp fifty different patterns tnsy be
manufactured, according to the number
of colors employed, 'ihe subjects that
the tapestnts represent also influence
their value, ordiuary shaded green land

The vertical threads of tho warp are
divided by a little tool called a huddle,
which keeps half of tboin in advance of
tho rest, but those behind cau be brought
forward wheaever required by meant of
mall cordr, oue of wnich is attached to
each warp thread. The left hand is in
troduced between tho two sets of threid,
taking up a many as need be, and
through these the needle is passed from
lclt to right. The thread whea stretched
is plied with the pointed needle, and Is
then passed back in the contrary direc
tion through the space opened by shitt
ing the position of the iron and b.tck
threads; by ingeniously couiMuing the
woofs, the colors aie made to bleud per
fectly, and effects are obtained liketUoie
of paintings.
The characteristics of the Gobelins
tapestries are especially large historical
scenes, reproductions from celebrated
paintings, etc. The Gobelins carpet de
partment weaves velvet carpets, in which
historical and mythological subjects are
reproduced. These carpets are manufac
tured ia the same way as velvets, that is,
the wefts, alter having been woven into
warps, are sheared upon the fat of the
tissue facing the artist by measurement to
a given length, to give more or less thick
ness to the velvet effects. The warp ate
disposed in the same manner as for the
manufacture of tapestries, but the artists
work with the face of the tissues facing
them, while, as previously sbov' it is
the reverse in tbe maoufap' ,cg of
tapestries. Tue carpets are r. uarkable
(or smoothness, evenness of texture, their
strength aud fineness exceeding even tho
Persian in this respect. Some of them
require from live to tea years for their
completioo, and cost tfi.OUO to $20.0UO.
All these carpets made during the reigu
of Napoleou III. were used for tbe decor
itioDS of the imperial palace. The largest
ever made was manufactured for the
gallery of the Louvre. It consists of
leventy-two pieces, the total length being
wore than 13UU feet.
Ia tbs city of Aubusson there are pri
vate mauulaoturers 1 who manufacture
upon the same general principle as ia tbe
State establishments, but simply lying the
procedure, sod not manufacturing as line,
or with tbe same car sad time. Tbe
warps employed are always in a horizon

ia general but water-color, and some
times ordinary oil paintings, or merely

The chief industry is that of tapestry
weaving. The oldest factotles were es
tablished in the fifteenth century. Twt
very different kinds of tapestry are bers
manufactured, namely, the artistic kind,
used for armchairs, furniture hangings,
mural decorations, and the like, (lit
prices of which ruu from (15 to f IOC
per square metre, according to the shndt
and fineness of designs. About
workmen are occupied in the production.
at an average wage of eighty cents pel
day. The other kind is ordinary tapes
try for floors, which are worth froif
seventy-five cents to i'i per square metre.
These workmen do mechanical weaving
with .Tacqusrd frames, and the ntmibei
of wnrkmnu employed on this class o!
goods is lflOO.
The artists employe 1 by ths French
State manufactories of tfioestries receiv
very high salaries, while those employed
at Aubusson by privnto maniifactoriel
are not very well paid. Tho time re
quired to manufacture tapestry of or
dinary dimensions at the Gobelins Is, ni
an average, three years; while at Au
basson a few months are sullicieat.
Oldest t'o;y of t le Honk of Zecliarlut
At the International Orientalist Con
gress in London, Knghnd, a most Inter
esting document was submitted by Itev.
Professor Ilechler, chiplain of the llrit
ish Embassy at Vienna, a distinguished
Orientalist. 11 is a papyrus manuscript,
discovered a few months ago in Kypt,
supposed by some to be the oldest copy
extant of portions of the Old Testament
books of Z icliariali and Malachl.
These pages of papyrus when Intacl
were about, ton inches high and seveo
Inchos wide, each containing twenty
eight lines of writing, both sides of ths
sheet being used. Tlie complete litis
contains from fourteen to seventeen let
ters. The sheets are bound together In
tho form of a book, In a primitive
though careful manner, with cord and
strips of old inrcliin;nt. The Greek is
written withuut intervals between the
words, a ciKtom in old Greek and old
Hebrew manuscripts. The ptpyrus is
in lair preservation, and is believed to
date from the thityl or fourth century.
It thus ranks in age witii the oldest
Greek manuscripts of tho cptuigint
version of the old Testament in, London,
Itome and lit. Petersburg.
Toe differences iu the papyrus tend to
tbe conclusion that it was copied from
some excellent original of the Scptuaglnt
Bible, first translated about 2Hi) 11. C,
(or the use of the Hellenistic Hebrews iu
Egypt, who, haviug gradually forgottcu
the Hebrew tongue, had learned to
speak Greek. It has several new lead
lugs which surpass some of tho othet
Septuagint texts in clearness of expres
sion and simplicity of grammar. It would
appear that it was copied, and not writ
ten from dictation. A secotid scribo has
occasionally corrected some mistakes of
orthography made by the original copy
ist, distiuguiihed by the different color
of the iuk.
Professor Ilechler said it was sin
cerely to be hoped that this papyrus will
soon be published in fac simile for ths
careful examination of Iiiblical schol
ars, and that it is the pressing duty of
tbe British Government to institute ao
organized and scientific search for papyri
ia Egypt. It is impossible to forecast
what surprises may be in store or what
treasures may be placed at the disposal

Fully half the women of tho world sleep
upou the fl'ior or the ground, and even
tlie richest of the ladies of Asia have
never knowu the luxury of hair mat
tresies and spring beds. Most of these
Mongolian bsautiut don't know what a
featiier bed moans, nnd there is in most
museums a Japanese pillow, consisting
of a piece of wood about tho siza of a
lnuf of bread, witU a piece ol soft paper
tied on the top of it, and so made that
it will just fit ioto Yum Y'utu's neck and
prop her bead off the floor.
Tho Japanese girl never needs to shake
up ber pillow, and it is her neck rather
than bead that lies upou it. Tbe same
kind of pillows are ued in China and
Siam, and as to the average woman of
Hiudostan, she doe cot kuow what a
pillow means.
Tbe Coreaa pillow is about eight
inches square and a foot long. I bava

Now It I tlie Foxi Turn.
8nme time ago it was found that the
Norway rats were multiplying; so fast on
Sable Island that they were killing oil
tue rabbits, which are valuable to tho
inbabltauts as a food. A number of
cats were, therefore, imported from
Halifax and turned loose ou the island
to kill the rats. Tbe cats disposed of
sums of the rats, but soon discovered
that it was easier to catch the rabbit
and tbat they tasted better. They mint!,
plied so fast and made such bavoa with
tbe rabbits tbat finally a lot of foxes
were brought to tbe island to kill the
cats. Tbe foxes have been doing their
work too well. They killed tba cats,
and then turned their attention to tba
sea fowl that haunt tba island, destroy
log their eggs and aatiog up tb!r young,

I n:n a farmer at Iidoin, Texas. I
have used German Syrup for six
years successfully for Sore Throat,
Coughs, Colds, Hoarseness, Pains in
Chest and Lungs and Spitting-up of
Blood. I have tried many kinds of
Cough Syrups in my time, but let
me say to anyone wanting such a
medicine German Syrup is the best.
We are subject to so many sudden
changes from cold to hot, damp
weather here, but in families where
German Syrup is used there is little
trouble from colds. John F.Jones.
