Catting a Big Ixg into m Single Sharing. The Croat Blade at It Work Forming the Angles of the Boir M airing the Bot- torn The Last Step. The thin sheets of wood which form the sides and bottom of a berry box are nothing more nor less than small pieces cut from a (rro-at pine, fir or wbitewood shaving, and bent and fastened together m the shape of a box. These shavings, of course, are not lite those which fail in graceful curls from the carpenter's plane, but are great long sheets, in each of which is almost the entire wood o big log. and from a single shaving is fre quently made f mm 2,000 to 5,000 berry boxes. ihe Iocs, which are brought down from the northern coast, are unloaded in the waters of the bay and floated into the boom close to the whore, where the factory is located. From there they are hauled up on a tramway run ning down into the water, so that the logs can be fl'ated uton the car. When brought tip, the logs aro cut by a drag saw into uni form lengths as desired. These sections of the los are then placed in a large steam box, of which there are several convenient to the machinery, and left for twelve hours, sub jected to the effects of the exhaust steam from the engine. This softens the wood so that it can be cut into the thin sheets desired without checking or splitting into fragments. A section of a great log, three feet in dia meter, was rolled out from the steam box by two men, and, after the center had been marked at both ends, was hoisted by a small derrick and swung over a machine, the prin cipal feature of which was a long bevel edged knife, firmly set in a strong iron frame. iu very much the same manner as the blade if a carpenter's plane is set. Indeed, the cutting portion of this machine is a great monster shaving plane, with the edge of the lade fixed upwards. The log was next low ered by the derrick to its proper position, i the operator of the machine pulled a lever, and two great clamps, with strong, sharp pointed jaws two inches lonp, advanced and pushed their iron teeth into the marked cen ters at each end of the log. The great wooden cvlinder was now held firmly in front of the blade of the immense shaving plane, and when the operator pulled another lever, the log commenced to revolve towards the cutting edge, exactly like the strip of wood in a turner's lathe revolves towards the chisel. Another pull bv the owrator, and the frame holding the great blade bognn to move up to the revolving log. When the knife came in contact with the steaming wood, the outer edes were ieeled off in thin strips without a sound of cutting, and the broad sheets rolled out under the blade as easily and noiselessly as would a slice of cheese under a sharp knife. After the water soaked, outer portions of the log bad been trimmed off in this man ner, the operator adjusted, on the side of the log opposite to the rutting knife, a number of small chisel like instruments at the end of each of which was a small, sharp cutting edge pressing against the log. These little cutters are placed at various distances, care fully measured by the operator, and evidently formed an important feature of the opera tion. When the los again began its revolu tions against the blade of the great shaving machine, there caino out from under the knife a long, wide, thin strip of wood, which the men puiled out and rolled and folded up like wad pajer. An examination of this great white, steam' ing shaving showed that its entire length was marked hy parallel lines cut partially through the wood, made by the little cutters at the back of the tog. The purpose of these lines was a mystery until the operator carelessly broke off an end of the great shaving, m&k iug a strip two or three inches wide, and quick! v bent it into the form of a berry box complete, excepting the bottom. The points of liending were the parallel lines cut in the wood, which made the operation of shaping the box nothing but a simple mechanical movement. The wood bent readily at the partial cuts and formed the angles of the box. Making the bottom, of course, consisted in exactly the same ojx'ratiou, except that the stri p used for this portion was not so long, having only twocn's and three segments. The middle segment formed, of course, the bottom of the box. and the two at the end extended upward inside the frame formed bv the longer strip. All but the small core of the log is turned off into this long shaving, one-twentieth of an inch in thickness and nearly 1,000 feet long, which is folded and broken into con venient lengths (or Handling as last ax it comes from the knife. The machinery which thus in a few min utes converts a rough log into ft long paper- like sheet of wood is called a rotary veneer machine, and in the factory are several of them of various sizes, the largest of them lieing adapted to the shaving of logs ten feet eight inches in length. This, by the way, is the largest rotary veneer machine in opera tion in the United States. The thin sheets of wood, as fast as they are taken from the ma chine, are placed ujon a long table near at hand, and pushed under a knife operated by steam iower, which cuts the wood into nar row strips, lengthwise, and of the proper width for the sides and bottom of a berry box. The knife which cute the long shavings crosswise of course cuts lengthwise of the grain. The narrow strips, as fast as they are cut, are taken away by boys and carried on an elevator to the second floor of the build ing, where a number of boys and girls rap idly bind them into box form. The last step in the manufacture, which is done by girls. is the fastening of the botton and side strips together. This is done by a peculiar looking machine called a stapler, but wbicn mignt very properly be called a wire sewing ma chine. ban Uiego lual.) union. Bow the Anthropoid Ape Tried to Atone fur ills Wicked Temper. The best known picture of Mr. Crowley, the late chimpamtee, represents him sitting in an arm chair with Bkulls and books about him as he debates within himself the possibilities of the Darwinian theory and of metempsychosis. It was painted in 18S5 by Mr. J. H. Beard, of the INational academy. 'My experience with Crowley," said Mr. Beard to a reporter, the other day, "makes me believe that he had a mental abilitv that came very near to reason, i had made many sketches and studies of him for several weeks, and had thus formed quite a friendship for j him. He knew me well, and used to shout a ; greeting whenever I entered his room. On the day of Gen. Grant's funeral, there being but few visitors in the park, SuiJerintend ent Conklin had Crowley's room closed at 10 o'clock in the morning, so that I might be undisturbed and make a portrait of the chimpanzee. Crowley was much interested in my work, and stretched out his hands now and then in a vain effort to get at the easel. I managed to catch him a few times in the pose you see in the picture and got it on the canvas. 'I finished the sketch at 8 o'clock in the afternoon and stood it against the wall, face outward, some eight feet from the bars of Crowley's cage. When my back was turned as I was putting away the brushes he caught tight of the picture, and, thinking it was an other chimpauzee, flew into a rage and threw a great handful of wet sawdust so skillfully that it smirched the work from top to bot tom. I turned just in time to see the damage done and too late to prevent it. 1 shook my maulstick as if to boat him and spoke sharply to him. Crowlev grimaced and danced fu riously and threw himself against the bars of his cage as if he wanted to kill ma If ever a simian swore he did. He raged for fully five minutes. When be at last stood still a few seconds I walked over to the cage and said: 'Crowley, don't yon think you ought to be ashamed of yourself for spoi.ing my day's work like that T As I spoke 1 pointed at the picture and he broke out into his chimpanzee swearing again. 'Then something in my voice held his at tention, and he listened to me quietly while 1 went on reproving him. 1 talked to him quietly but reproachfully, and he seemed al most to understand. As I went on he looked at me, then at his portrait, and evident iy re flected that he had done something wicked, He pondered for some minutes with his eye brows drawn into a black knot. At last he thrust out his great hairy arm through the bars and looked up at me beseeching! v. as if to ask me to shake hands. I shook hands with him, and he was so pleased at this sign of forgiveness that he danced a jig as an evi dence that there remnincd within not the slightest vestige of ill feeling. It was more than sixteen months before I saw Crowley again, but he recognized rav face among throng of visitors, and, climbing upon his age bars, shouted and beckoned, and would not stop until I came up and shook bands with Jiim." ew i ork v orld.

Here is a truly remarkable letter: I have been troubled with rheumatism for two years; had gotten so I could scarcely walk, and was in pain nearly all of the time. At night 1 could not sleep for the excruciating pain. The bone in one of my legs was very much enlarged, and I feared amputation would be neces sary. After trying many different patent medicines claiming to cure rheumatism and other complaints, I was almost dis couraged until about two weeks ago, when I had to give up business. Mr. W. J. Willingham, of your city, bearing of my complaint, advised the use of your medi cine and assured me of his confidence in it as a cure for rheumatism. I at once purchased a bottle, hoping it might pos sibly relieve me, but not having much faith in it or anything else; but, thank God, I am very much relieved, and I hrmly believe 1 will get entirely well.

Methods of an English Teacher. In passing on to sneak of other aspects of Mr. Turing's work at Uppingham, and of his efforts to realize in actual working facta sound theories in education, it would perhaps be well to remind the American reader that the accepted function of the English public school is as much to mold character as to train intellect. Our ordinary dav schools cannot hope to do this in a like degree. In the few hours during which the teacher has charge of his pupils he strives to engage their attention, tram their faculties, and, if pos sible, reach to some extent the heart as well as the head. Then they go bark to an infin ite variety of homes to spend far the greater part of their time, and the character of the home ordinarily is the prime influence in determining tlie character of the child. Strong personality in a teacher, or excep tional circumstances, mav indefinitely ux tensify the influence of the dav school on character, but as a rule it must be compara tively superficial. It is otherwise with the English public school. Here a boy has to nass much the greater part of his time during the most im pressionable years of his life. His school roasters, schoolfellows and school surround ings ore the prrmo forces in molding his character. He is a member of a small repub lic, with laws, customs, institutions, ambi tions of its own, and where the individual life and the general life react npon each other with singular intrrsiry To the school come boys from every kind of bome; all are to lie trained, and the failures should be few as possible. The responsibility thrown upon the master is enormous; but, on the other hand, his work is infinitely dignified by the opportunity which it furnishes for su preme influcnco on character. The head mastership of a school of this typo, drawing soipe hundreds of boys from the better classes of society, furnishes a sufficient field for the very highest ability, and may enable a man to exercise, in the course of a generation, a perceptible influence on national character.

Every white man who has served under the explorer Stanley speaks of his remark able taciturnity. In the years he was found ing the Congo state stations he kept all his plans to hinisuli, and bis assistants seldom got an inkling of tnem until tney were ordered to carry them out. Lieut. Coquilhat gives a curious instance of this characteristic, Quite contrary to his usual custom Stanley one day offered Coquilhat his choice in the director ship of one of two proposed stations that were to be started at Lulanga and lia-JN gala- He told the lieutenant that Lulanga was the center of a large and friendly populace, while the Ba-Ngala, though the most power ful tribe on the river, were audacious and ir ritable, and his life would be in danger among them unless he acted with great dis cretion. Coquilhat told his leader to put nun where he could be most useful Stanley said nothing more, but Coquilhat soon after re ceived marching orders. Up the river they started on their little steamer, and though Coquilhat wondered greatly what station he was to take in charge, Stanley did not drop the slightest hint, it was not nntil after sev eral days' traveling the steamer passed Lu- langa without stoppinc that Coquilhat knew that his fortunes were to be cast among the Ba-Ngala. New York Bun. The Second Hand Dealer's Trlrtu The American business man has had his wits so sharpened with keen competition in trade that he never loses the least opportu nity to turn a dollar. This was forcibly il lustrated by a second hand furniture dealer the other day. A woman purchased some very niee new furniture on the installment plan and fitted up a boarding house on one of the priucipal streets of the city. But business not coming up to her expectations she skipped and left the furniture in the bouse. The second hand dealer wns struck with a capital idea to turn a few dollars into his pocket He purchased the furniture and exteasivelv advertised it to be sold at auc tion in the bouso on a certain day. Before 1 the day of the sal he oiled and varnished a large amount of second hand furniture he had in his own store, and, after giving it the appearance of new furniture, placed it in the house. On the day of the sale the usual large num ber of ladies who flock to an auction in search of "bargains1' filled the house to overflowing. The keen witted second hand dealer had made ample arrangements to show his goods to the best advantage by having the window blinds pulled down and the rooms lighted by the flickering gleams of burning gas lets. 1 be auctioneer joined in the shrewd game, and put the old and new furniture together, and the whole lot was passed off as new furniture "only used a few days by the lady." By thiB trick the second hand man readily disposed of his old furniture. The auctioneer cried the praises of an old p.ano that had long since been pounded to death with all sorts of music, from the thunder of Wagner down to the slow notes of 8how Pity, Lord-" It was knocked down at a handsome price as a piano that had been used for a few days onlv. And so on, the whole lot of furniture sold like hot cakes. ' LiloDe-lemocrat. ADV1QI TO H0TBKK1.
