The Peculiar Process of Tanning Employed
in its Manufacture.
A contemporary gives an account of
the processes of tanning employed in
Russia for the fabrication of soft leather.
The process consists of five operations
unharnng, stretching, softening, tan
ning and currying. To effect the un-
hairiner, eitrht buckets of wood ashes
and one of lime are thrown into a pit,
which is then filled two-thirds with
water. ' The skins remain in the pit for
ten days, and are then taken out, while
four buckets of wood ashes and half a
one of lime are put into the liquor, to
which the hides are again returned for
eleven days. The hides thus prepared
are unhaired with a blunt knife of thirty
centimeters in length; they are again
put into the pit to swell them. After a
further stay of two days in running
water they are stretched and pulled in
water; these operations are repeated
until the leather is white and very sup
ple. Afterward comes the softening,
which is done in a vat or pit containing
water at twenty degrees, and oatmeal
reduced to flour.
Then comes the tanning: The hides
are covered on the hairy side (called
the flour) with an evenly spread layer
of tan, finely cut, and plunged into
vat full of water. This first operation
lasts from fifteen to twenty days. In
the second operation the flesh side is
covered with a laver of tan, while in
the first operation dry tan is employed.
so that the powder may deposit itself
on the surface of the leather, so as to
cover it in. The second fresh tan is
used to avoid the loss which the powder
produces. In the third operation, and
also the fourth, it is the flesh side which
receives the coating of tan. Each time
the leather remains in the vat for fifteen
or twenty days, so that the tanning
process occupies about two months and
four days. After tanning comes tne
currvinff. From the same skin are
made black and white leather.
. In both cases the leather, after being
tanned, is smeared with tar and seal
fat. The hide is then taken to the dry-
inr-room. The black leather is colored
before being greased. The greasing of
the leather is followed by certain oper
ations, destined to give the leather the
form or cofor desired by commerce.

How a Walter Became, in His Humble Way,
Quit a Noted Character.
Sometimes waiters pick up a great
deal of curious information and can
make good use of it. I knew a man
who had been a waiter in a London
place of business, and afterwards set
tled down as the landlord of a most
respectable hotel in a provincial city,
He had extremely pleasing manners,
and was noted for the clear, bright
opinions which he expressed on nearly
every conceivable subject and the ad
mirable way in which he supported
them, and yet this man was utterly un
able to read or write with any degree
of correctness. He was asked one day
to explain how he came by his multi-
various knowledge and large collection
of opinions. His explanation was very
simple. He had been regularly em
ployed as a waiter at public dinners at
the Mansion House, the London 1 avern,
etc. He had heard all the most re
markable public men of the day speak
repeatedly on every variety of topic.
He had always listened attentively and
with the greatest appreciation. In his
own humble way he became quite a
public character. There were great
men who would always give him a
kindly thought, and I have an idea that
even m their speeches they would some
times address themselves to the appre
ciation and intelligence of their favorite
waiter. If they could please that
waiter thev would be pretty sure of
'fetching.' the general public. Ml the
THE ERA OF PEACE.
Mr. Grady's Grand Oration and "Harper's
Weekly's" Hearty Comments Upon It.
The new South has found a striking
and significant expression in the ap
pearance of Mr. Trenholm, of South
Carolina; the Comptroller of the Cur
rency, and Mr. Grady, of Georgia, the
editor of the Atlanta Constitution, as
guests at the annnal dinner of the New
England Society, in Philadelphia and
New York respectively. The strain of
remark at these noted dinners is al
ways patriotic, and the speeches natur
ally teem with glowing and tender allu
sions to the civil war and the Union sol
diers. It was a signal sign, therefore,
of the actual situation that two of the
strongest Confederates should rise in
the midst of such a Northern company
as gather at these dinners, and by their
personal bearing no less than by the
earnestness and eloquence ; of their
speeches should show to the most skep
tical what worthy foes they had been.
and what sincere friends they are.
To these distinguished orators who
in tho two great cities spoke for tho
new South must be added Mr. James
Phelan, of Tennessee, who is just
elected to Congress in the Memphis
district, and who in his own district
and among his own Southern fellow-
citizens' proved himself to be, with Mr.
Trenholm and Mr. Grady, a man of
broad comprehension and sagacious
views. All of these gentlemen, it must
be understood, speak as men who.
without renunciation of their local feel
ing, of their State pride or of their
honor and affection for the men with
whom they stood fast for what they
held to be a true cause, own without
reservation its defeat and the conse
quent total change of conditions in the
life around them. Thus Mr. Phelan
"Bitter to my taste as were the results of the
them, and convinced me of the wisdom of cheer
ful submission to the will of Him who brought
mem about. The union of these States has
been preserved and declared indissoluble. A
great and disturbing constitutional question
has been finally and forever settled, and slavery
has been forever abolished; it no longer tar
nishes me fair fame of a great and free Repub
lic, necause it was involved In me question of
constitutional right I fought four years in its
defense. I tell yon now, upon the honor of my
manhood, that I would fight eight years, though
my hairs are white, against any attempt to re
instate it in any portion of this continent."
Mr. Grady s speech was one of the
most striking that have been delivered
by any citizen of a Southern State since
the war. It was very eloquent. His
tribute to Abraham Lincoln was very
impressive, and the effect of his address
delivered to that New England com
pany will be most serviceable to the
"Great types, like valuable plants, are slow
to flower and fruit, but from the union of these
colonies came he who stands as the first typical
American, the first who comprehended within
himself all the strength and greatness, all the
majesty and grace, of this Republic Abraham
Lincoln, He was the sum of Puritan and Cava
lier, tor in his -ardent nature were rased the
virtues of both, and in the depths of his great
soul me faults of bom were lost; but be wss
greater than Puritan, greater than Cavalier, in
that he was American, ana in mat tn his home
ly form were first gathered the vast and ster
ling forces of this Republic, charging it with such
tremendous meaning and so elevating it above
human suffering that martyrdom, though in
famously aimed, came as a fitting crown to a life
consecrated from me cradle to human liberty.'
Mr. Grady said also :
" The relations of the Southern people with
the negro are close and cordial. We remember
with what fidelity he guarded our defenceless
women and children, whose husbands and fath
ers were fighting against his freedom. To his
eternal credit be it said that whenever he
struck a blow for his own liberty he fought in
open battle, and when at lost he raised his
black and humble hands that the shackles
might be struck off, those hands were innocent
of wrong against his helpless charges, and
worthy to be taken in loving grasp by every
who honors loyalty and devotion. Ruf
fians have maltreated him, rascals have misled
him, but his treatment in the South to-day is
an honorable protest against injustice to this
simple and sincere people. Faith has been
kept with him in spite of calumnious assertions
to the contrary by those who assume to speak
for us or by frank opponents. Faith will-be
kept with him in me future if the South holds
hsr reason and integrity. The new South is
enamored of her new work. Her soul is stirred
with the breath of new life. As she stands.
full-statured and equal among the people of the
earth, breathing me keen air and looking out
upon the limitless horizon, she understands
mat her emancipation came because, in the in
scrutable wisdom of God, her honest purpose
was crossed and her brave armies beaten.
This is said in no spirit of time-serving and
apology. I should be unjust to me South if
did not make this plain in this presence."
His closing appeal to New England
whether she will "permit the preju
dice of the war to remain in the hearts
of the conquerors when it has died in
the hearts of the conquered " was most
touching and impressive. New England
certainly would be recreant to her own
bi'St impulses if the appeal were not
answered in the same manly and friend
ly spirit in which it is made. Harper's
The Brave Forgive.
"what answer has New England to
this message?" asked Henry W. Grady
in his "New South" address. "Will
she permit the prejudice of war to re
main in the hearts of the conqueror
when it has died in the hearts of the
conquered? Will she withold save in
strained courtesy the hand which
straight from his soldier's heart Grant
offered to Lee at Appomattox?" We
do not know what New England's
answer will be : but we are inclined
believe that it will not permit the prej
uc'.ico of war to remain in the hearts
the conqueror when it has died in the
hearts of the conquered. That portion
of New England that fought in the war
certainly will not ; and the same is true
of the soldier element everywhere.

partisans here and elsewhere which
prefer to keep up the prejudice. It
they that meet the frank, free, full sur

A WISE POLICY.
The Dignified, Manly Course of the Administration
in Dealing with Great Britain
in the Fishery Troubles.
The President transmitted to the
House of " Representatives a volumin
ous document, containing all the cor
respondence that has passed between
the United States and Great Britain in
regard to the rights of American fish
ermen in the British North American
waters. The contents of this document
lead us to three conclusions: 1. That
the local Canadian authorities have
repeatedly, and, in- some instances,
outrageously violated the rights se
cured to these fishermen, under ' the
treaty of 1818, between the United
States and Great Britain, and that they
show no disposition to discontinue this
system of aggression against these
rights, claiming the authority of local
law for their proceedings. 2. That
Secretary Bayard has, by no means.
been as indifferent and dilatory in deal
ing with this question as he is repre
sented to have been by partisan' news
papers, that are politically hostile to
him and the Administration of Presi
dent Cleveland; but that, on the con
trary, he has repeatedly and earnestly
protested against these outrages, and
respectfully, but firmly, called the at
tention of tho British Government
to them. 3. That the British Gov
ernment has been exceedingly tardy
and apologetic in dealing with this sub
ject, and has practically, as yet, done
nothing by way of stopping and re
dressing these wrongs. The President
recommends Congress to give this sub
ject its early attention, and raises the
question whether some additional leg
islation on our part is not called for.
Secretary Bayard suggests that proper
steps should be taken by Congress to
allow proofs to be made of all losses
and injuries to our fishermen, as the
basis of a future demand against Great
Britain for indemnity. The American
people desire to maintain amicable re
lations with Great Britain; but they are
able to defend, and will defend, the
treaty rights of their fishermen in' Ca
nadian waters, and will hold Great Brit
ain responsible for and violation of
these rights. N. Y. Independent.
The Republicans of Minnesota
think they know how it camo about
that their candidate for Governor ran
about seven thousand behind the can
didate for Lieutenant-Governor. They
think that Mr. Charles A. Gilman, who
was a candidate for the Gubernatorial
nomination and failed to get it, not
only sulked in his tent but sent out
word to his friends to oppose the head
of the ticket. This belief is strength
ened by the fact that in those counties
where Gilman was expected to be the
strongest Mr. MuGill got the smallest
vote. Chicago News.

this should come just as Mr. Blaine had
