A PECULIAR LUMBER INDUSTRY IN SOUTHERN SWAMPS, - Kcaxroea Who Girdle aad Veil Trwoa While Btaadlna; Waiat Deep la WfateY Lof Trolleya Owerated bp- Powerful Knffixarie Sot TJai lm Pull boo ta. a Cypress lumber has not made mnch progret in the markets of this city, bat it is difficult to convince a southerner that it is not the coming wood far both interior and exterior construction, and its constantly increasing popularity in the southern states has led to enormoos iayfestments in cypress swamp land, loa ding machinery and mills for working up tne logs into planksmoldings, shin gles nnd other building material. Cypress -OBB'ng is an amphibious sort of a business. The best of the trees grow an so called swamps, which are often merely forests through which the living water courses tow ara tne pea in a thou sand channels. It is seldom found on stagnant swamp land, and the best tim ber grows where clear running water circulates round the roots of the giant trees. There are hundreds of such places in Florida and Louisiana. Live cypress timber is so heavy that it sinks if felled when green, and cen sermcntly the lumbermen have to work from eight months to a year in advance of the catting to prepare the timber by girdling the trees and thus preventing the circulation of the sap. Thousands of trees aro killed thns far in advance of the felling. Girdling is both arduous and dangerous work. It is done by ne gro choppers who stand often waist deep in water in the haunts of the dreaded moccasin snake, the alligator and the wildcat, to say nothing of the swarms of mosquitoes and other equally pestif erous insects. The negroes endure all the hardships for $1 a day. On the picturesque Ocklawaba river, in Florida, one phase of the cypress luin bor industry is seen to the best advan tage. This wonderful river is fed by clear, cold springs of tremendous vol ume, and it winds for many miles through endless acres of moss draped cy press trees. It has hundreds of loops, or branches, which loave it at one point only to return to it at another, between its source and its junction with the fct. Johns. Between the main river and the branches, which are all more or less navigable, is floodod forest laud through which the water slowly circulates to the depth of 2 or 8 and sometimes 4 or 5 feet. It is in these flooded tracts that the cypress trees grow to perfection. One compacy, with headquarters at Pa latka and an office at Boston, controls the lumbering on this river. The com pany bought 300,000 acres of cypress land for CO cents to $3 an acre, and sev eral years ago engaged a number of sturdy loggers from Saginaw, Mich., to take charge of the work. It was all new to the Michiganders, but they took hold with aptness and quickly broko in the negroes to the work. Soon the dark re cesses of the Ocklawaba swamp resound ed with the blows of ,th as, the shouts of mon, and the crashing of the old giants as they broke through the branches of their neighbors and fell with a prodigious splash into the waters of the swamp. Then above all could be heard the. rattling, jarring and clank ing of the novel logging machinery as it snaked the huge legs from the recesses of the swamp to the swift stream upon which they were rafted to the big river. A logging camp in this swamp con sists of a bnnkboat with a kitchen at tached and a pull boat. Tbe'pullboat contains a powerful hoisting engine, and is secured with its square bow to the bank against a tall and sturdy cypress tree, denuded of branches and decorated with a baud of red cloth near the top. Stretching away from on elevated point upon this tree to another similar giant a quarter of a milo back in the swamp is a taut steel cable, from which depends a trolley or carrier attached to an end less steel cable, which winds and un winds upon the spool of the engine. Attached to the trolley is a ttuge pair of sharp pronged tongs capublo of span ning a log .5 feet in diameter. Leading away from the boat is a well marked hiuo traversed by the trolley. Trees aro cleared away on each side of tho cable to the full extent of its grasp, and the lano terminates only where tho end tree of the trolley line stands. This point reached, the cable is taken down and another lane soon radiates from the pull boat. When five or six lanes have been made, the tract has been protty well cleared of serviceable trees, and the boat and clamp ore moved to a new point. When a cypress is felled in one of tbeso lanes, it is cross cut in lengths of 13 ta 16 feet, and the jaws of the grap nel or a bight of chain grip' the end ly ing toward the boat. A whoop from the foreman of tho gang notifies the engi neer, who blows bis whistle and starts the engine. As the conveyor cable tightens, the forward enl of the log rises clear of the water - and stumps and the other end trails through tho water, send ing up fountains of Fpray as it rears over kneed and stumps and splashes in the open pools. Sometimes a venture some negro straddles the loo, and, cling ing to the chain or grapnel, rides out to tho houseboat to get his dinner or grind an ax. It is a wild ride, and appears far more thrilling than the spectacle of a tenderfoot upon a bucking broncho. " This, however, is only one of the nu merous cypress industries in Florida, and there are many more of the same kind in Louisiana and Alabama, where living watercourses penetrate the cypress swamps. Where there is not good water way in Louisiana an even more costly plant is nsed frequently. A sawmill is pieced at the edge of a cypress swamp and from tho nlabs and sawdust of tne nearby trees a railroad bed is built out into the swamp, and the place of the pullbcnt is taken by a heavy flat car, secured to nearby treed with guy ropes, and having on board a powerful pulling engiua New York San. , "JOSEPHtNlTS EXTRAVAGANCE. Even th Emparrar WapiAa.ua Was Both . . anredl lay Pi eainaahcm' Balla. Throughout the late summer and an tumn cf 1807 the imperial court was more stately than ever before. The old nobility became assidnons in their at tendance, and, as one of the empress' la dies in w airing is said to hare remarked, the court "received good company." On his return Xapoleon had found Jose phine's extravagance to be as unbound ed as ever, but he could not well com plain, because, although for the most part frugal himself, he had this time encouraged lavisbness in his family. Still, it was not agreeable to have dress makers' bills Sung ' into his carriage when driving in state with his consort, and an one occasion he sent an unprin cipled but clever milliner to the prison of Bicetre for having disobeyed his or ders in furnishing her wares to the em press at exorbitant prices. The person was so indispensable to the court ladies, however, that they crowded her cell, and she was socn released. At St. Glond, Malmaison, the Tulle ries and Fontaineblean the social vices of courts began toapnapr, but they were sternly repressed, especially high play. By way of contrast, the city of Paris was at that very moment debauched by a profusion of gambling hells and houses of prostitution licensed at an enormous figure by Foucbe and produc ing great revenues for the secret police. The gorgeous state uniforms of the marshals, the rich and elegant costumes of the ladies, the bespangled and begilt coats of the household, dancing, theat ricals, concerts and excursions all these elements should have combined to create brilliancy and gayety in the im perial circle, but they did not "Life of Napoleon," by Professor Sloane, in Century. DifflcBltTee of Carnation Culture. . Luck is not a reliable factor in the difficult problem of carnation culture. It demands exhaustive knowledge of the habits, requirements and diseases of the plant, unceasing watchfulness and unre mitting labor the year through. Even when all is done that seems possible to merit success, the grower is liable to the exasperation of finding that particular varieties, upon which he may have based his most sanguine expectations, obsti nately refuse to flourish under his care. Almost every carnation culturist knows varieties that he "simply cannot raise" and neither he, nor anybody else, can toll the reason why. Of course, there must be something lacking, in soil, wa ter, air or treatment, which they re quire, but it seems as if they were ca pable of taking offense at him, or his surroundings, and preferring death, or at least nnprodnctive life, to endurance of the association. Scribner's. Willing to Oblige. Ex-Senator Sawyer was quoted in Washington as saying: :Wheu they ask me if I want to be a'delegate, I tell them 'No, I don't care anything about it. that Ihave been to a good many conventions; that I am pretty near SO years old, and that if any of the boys want to go in my place I am perfectly willing to have 'em. At the same time, if they want to make me a delegate I'll accept. - I've got nothing else to do, but I'm too old to have any ambition, and hereafter will do anything that is want ed of me, but no more. " This is a very sensible and moderate observation. Bat it applies to all sorts of jobs, including United States senator. La Crosse (Wis. ) Chronicle.

The rail is pro vided with an edge or rim covered with cogs or teeth, and the wheel has simi lar cogs which engago with them. These cogs are set on diasonally, inclinii'g downward, and are less likely to accu mulate dust and dirt. New York Ledger. Old Feopla.

" -BOCK" BEER. fct-ra tha aWrraratco la Brewed aaal Piw aarect For the Tract. "Bxk" beer is the Keynote of history or neer brewing as it is understood bv the people of this day. It is generally supposed that beer is of distinctively German origin, whereas it is a fact that beer was brewed . by the men 'of many nationalities in many parts of the world centur.es before the Christian era. The Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, made beer from corn and barley in those ancient times The lager after of the uermanj was a Bavarian product and nock beer originated in Bavaria. Ws have heard a number of stories as to the origin cf the term "bock" beer, and while they all vary as tc detail, they are as a rule correct. When beer was first brewed in Bavaria and for a long time afterward in that and all Other parts of the world, tee formed no part in the manufacture, though it was very necessary that it should be fermented and stored in a cold temperature. As ice was' not relied upon to make this cold air and as artificial refrigeration wasnot dreamed of, brewing was done only in cold weatber, and the beer was stored in chill vaults underground. Here it was left to age until some time in spring, say the latter pait of April or the begin ning of May. when the vaults were thrown opou and the thirsty public was regaled with a pure, wholesome draft of the foamy beverage. And as the first issue from the vaults was stronger and liable to go to the head, the people were earn to he oocked ; hence the name. Another version of the story is that when the vaults were thrown opeu, a buck jumped out and that gave rise to the name and also to the widely adver tised "William" goat who adorns the "bock" beer signs of the present day. Bnt "bork" beer season is a time of sentiment to ths Germans, and other people have imbibed the sentiment with the dark and heavy drink. Tlioy want "bock" beer at the proper time and they will drink it then and enjoy it wine and Spirit Journal. Anton Rubinatein. I That Rubinstein played at times incor rectly, wildly, evon insolently, is quite true, nnd tho critics who enraged him so wore quite, right to say so. What happen ed was tills: iiubinstein soon pcrcoivMl what, alas, all good virtuosi are not slow to discover that tho English, or a pood leaven of them in every audience, "aro not amnslcnl people." They caur bo taken with a claptrap effect while deaf to more subtle nnd legitimate efforts. Hubinsteln would scum at times to piny down to them in scorn and mock them or stalk through his part lu a rage. Tho critics reproved him, and ho left I ho country In a huff, iut it wns temper and want of patience- with a public who, though not musical, paid well and offerod him every kind of lionmyio. He should huvo boon contented with tho culti vated portion of ic who had reully created the taste for Iiiin, but Rubinstein wus ex tremely irritable. I have known him to get up from .hetable in tho middle of din ner and leave the company for no reason except that he was bored. Fortnightly Review. Thb Abics.
