"There b no ure In trvlnir to make
by nMcblrra," said a Washington baker man
to a reporter. "I've attempted it, and It's a
dead failure. Tlw Germans won't bur anv
but tha hand made, which, for one reaeon
aobody ha been ever aide to make out, are
sweeter and of a better flavor, even when the
doUKh Used hi precisely the same in both.
Then, again, tha one turned out by band
have a deju-ate sort of skin which the ma
chine mail l-ck. A curious thins too,
since there la no difTrnr in material, the
kneadiiiK l the mine, and the only variation
In process is between stamping with steel
dyes and twisting into hape with the hand."
"Ul(t you ever see a pretzel malef Then
Just look bore," continued the baker man
KrabbiiiK as he spoke a small hunk of oe"
nary bread dooKh from a heap on the table
close by. He rolled the hunk moe'iy over
the board with both bands unr" It was a
long, thin, cylindrical strip. Then taking
each end of the strip between a thumb and
foreflnor he curled It th two or three
quick motions Into tbe shape of a perfrrt
pretanL The whole pnxvse required perha
four seeonda, but be wan not trying to do It
"But a pretzel Isn't mado of ordinary
doutfh," sUKtrseteii tl newvi('r man.
"Ita matorial ia simply Hour and water,
with sis pounds of bird added for each bar
rel of flour. Tbe pr-itiel dough is made up
Just like bread doin;h, au l the factory hand
turn the prvtScU out one by one in precisely
the war I allowed you. As fiutt as they are
given aliH w, like tins one Lhnve just iniulo,
they are thrown into keul.-s of boilmi; lye,
kept at the b'in'riiture n.v.jiry by steam
Jaeketa A moment later they are ll-ilied out
with skimmers and thrown upon a bV nf
alt. Finally, with what salt adheres to
tbem, tbey are picked up gingerly and laid in
arena, with the misnlted mi, lea down. When
they are done they are ready for consump
tion, usually with her. No method has thus
far been discovered of sailing pretzels other
le than by ha m I. so delicately must they
t handlml at this tn;e of the performance."
"But how are they cut by machinery r
"Like ordinary crm-kers. The d.iuRh hi
rnlleil out In thin sheets and laid upon an end
less belt, which carries them alou beneath a
steel die that ruta out half a doen or more
pretael shaped pieces nt eiieh hammer life
stmk. The pretwls pro-lin-o'l in this way
look exactly like the hand made, and, l'lnh'
of the same material, onht to bn quite aa
good, hut they are not. The r.xt of the pro
cess haa to tie (sTformnl by hand anyway.
I fancy that the liermans are prejudiced ulo
airainst machine maile pret'l U-cause they
regard them aa against hon.et nianunl lalmr.
Anyway they sell for S rents a pound less in
the market than the hand made ones bring.
Pennsylvania is t he grent pretzel making state.
It is an enormous industry in K runton,
Philadelphia, mneciiilly in Pottstown, nnd all
thnaigh the coal mining regions, v. hich are
thickly settled with Uermnns. The people
employed In manufacturing them are ah of
that race, and, In fact, wherever you llnd
pretzel In the world the Herman Is found
also. To the Teuton they are, in conjunction
with beer, what ambrosia was to the gods,
with nectar on the side." Washington Star.

Several year ago, when W. K. Sullivan,
now managing editor of The Journal, was a
reporter on Tbe Tribune, he was sent up to
KvansbMi to do the college conimeiicemnit
etereuea. When be had written up the after
noon stssiiuu he took It to the telegraph nllice
and liu'ldeiitally remarkeii to the o-ratir
that he would have some more stutT to send
In tbe evening ehoilt u;;i) or in o'cli-k. The
operabir informed Mr Sullivan tlint tlie of
Itisj would las rkei at that time, and he could
not send any nussiage. Mr Sullivan mid that
what he ilcnired to send would ls Important
matter for his pa-r, ami asked the dignified
youug man why he c.hiI.1 not ! there to re
relve it The reply was that lie an. going to
a ball with his girl that mhl and he did not
propose to give It Hp for thst nr, the col
lege or for anything ele. Mr. Sullivan en
ibstvoreil to argue the s.int with him, hut the
young fellow would linteu in nothing.
Kinnllv Mr. Sullivan oked in knurl hum-blem-i
if be could actid a me-mge then, and
as .niii-u..li was grante.1 be t.sik a blank
and wrote: "Anson Stager. Wentcm t'liion

signeil hi name and luuide.1 it in. As Jhe
young man read it he turr-si all sort of
color and, seeing tiiut lie wa-. Is-uten, md it
down and aaid aailly, "I will I. here." I im
porters do not enjoy Is-mg hard henrted, but
the exigencies of this ca-s- in the first place

A friend once told me how, when a child,
she was one day kept without food, and sent
to bed hungry and exhausted, for not reciting
nine hnea by heart, foe punishment being
Inflicted on the supposition that she was will
fully otMtmate. She Mild that she doc not
now think herself to have beam natural ly ob
stinate, speaking generally; and. in this par
ticular instance, she added: "lint what no
one knew then, and what I know as the fact,
wa that after refusing to do what was re
quired, and laring anger and threat in
consequence, I lost the power to do It. I tie
came atone. The will was petrified, and I
absolutely could not comply." She expressed
the conviction that the ttinacv was not in
the mind, but on the nerve, and that what
ws rail obstinacy In children, ami in grown
people, too, is often something of this kind,
ami that It may be increase.) by mismanage

ropean Pre Animadversion oa British
New York, Dec 2S. The Evening Bun
publishes a long and somewhat sensational
statement in regard to possible difficulties
between this conntry aud Portugal The
substance of it is that Mrs. McMurdo. of
Buffalo, widow of tbe bite Col. McMurdo, an
American citizen who organized an English
syndicate and built tbe Delagoa Bay rail
road in African territory claimed by Portu
gal, recently waited upon Secretary Blaine,
accompanied by a western New York con
gressman as friend and counsel, and sub
mitted to the secretary convincing proofs
that the property rights of Col McMurdo
were beiug disregarded by Portugal. Tbe
secretary invited explanations from the Por
tuguese government, but received no satis
factory response, whereupon he sent the
squadron of evolution to l.Lsln instead of to
Havre, as first intended, and notified Lord
Salisbury that the United States is ready to
cooperate with Ureat Britain in forcing
Portugal to respect tho right of foreigners
in the territory referred to. Ird Salisbury
at the same time ordered four British men-of-war
from Malta to Lisbon.
Doesn't Expert Hostilille.
The Hun further says: 'The Portu
guese government will not misappre
hend the bidden meaning in the apiiear-
ance of tbe Knglish and American ironclads
in the harbor of LLslsn at this time, and
while Mr. Blaine ha no doubt but that the
Complication will be satisfactorily adjusted,
and without the outbreak of hostilities,
yet he tielleves it better, in view of the pecu
liar and unexplained trilling f Portugal with
the United States thus far, that we should
make a tihow of our caimcity to onforce de
Had to Art with England.
Mrs. McMurdo and tbe other heir of her
husband are entirely satisfied with the posi
tion taken by Mr. Blaine, and are convinced
that he will bring the whole power of tbe
United States government to bear to protect
the interest of the American citizen iu
Africa in case it should prove necessary. "It
may appear strange," coutinues The Sun,
"that Blaine has thought uetvssary to com
municate so promptly with Sulisbury, and
before any decisive attempt to come to a sat
isfactory agreement with Portugal is made.
But the secretary of state took this step tie
cause tbe Interests of McMurdo aud bis heirs
are at present almost inseparably associated
with those of the English bondholders and
stockholders whose property is imperiled by
tbe present condition of affairs."
British War Ships Preparing.
London, Dec 28. Tbe British Mediter
ranean squadron, prepared for action, has
been ordered to rendezvous at Gibraltar in
readiness to proceed to Lisbon at a moment's
notice. Tbe Temerair arrived at Gibraltar
yesterday and the Colossus and Benbnw left
Malta for that place yesterday afternoon.
The original plan of assembling the fleet in
the Tagus wa aliandoned because It was
feared tliat their pressure there would inter

peaceful settlement of the difficulty.
THE EUROPEAN PRESS.
"Perfidious Albion" Raked 1 ..re-an.l-Afl
by tha Editor.
LoNnos, Dec. 28. The Continental press,
including the semi-oftlcial organs, give evi
dence of lieing more perturbed over the
Anglo-Portuguese dispute than any of tbe
journals of tbe disputing countries, though
in their expressions there is no intimation
that it may be deemed advisable for any of
the powers to interfere in the matter. The
Russian press are naturally inclined to take
the part of Portugal in discussing the merits
of the quarrel, and are unanimous in the
declaration that Ujislnnd has no right to ex
ited the symjiatby of her continental neigh
bors in her present diftieulty, since tier own
African policy has always lti and is still
selfish, aggressive and blundering. In the
present instance Portugal has merely done
wlutt England ha been doing for years, and
in getting a diise of b -r own medicine she
shows the jierversity of the child in refus
ing to take it
tlnw the ;ernians IHik at It.
The German press ore, as a rule, no more
disHieed to side with England than are their
Russian conteniioraries. The Cologne Ga-
zett takes sulistuntially tbe same ground
as that taken by tlie St, Petersburg (iaK'rs
in imputing to England a iiolicy of sclflsh
greed in Africa which raises her indignant
wrath at the alleged encroachments of Por
tugal to the height of absurdity.

POURED OIL ON THE WATERS.
A HritU't Shin Captain Calms the Wave
and Raves His Ship.
NewYork, Pec. "i. Capt. John F. Free
man, of the British steamship Iicnlarig, re
ports a remarkable instance of the successful
use of oil for calming wave. His vessel had
been driven across a reef off Cape Trafalgar,
and was disabled. The wind blew a terrific
gale. The heavy sea rolling in wa partly
broken by the reef, and the ship lay sur
rounded by a confused mass of breakers,
shipping water on all sides. The lifeboats
and everything movable were washed away,
aud the decks were continually swept by the
seas. Capt. Freeman say that be thought
bis ship wa going down.
Keventy-nvtt t.allon llld the Work.
As a last reirt he opened tbe lio'd and got
up two barrel of linseed oil, which he used
with magical effect. The oil was distributed
from the forward closet-bowls in the usual
manner. Attemps were made to use oil bags
from the forecastle, but they were washed
nd blown in board and were of but little
use. I be etlect of the oil was instantly felt
and from that time the ship was perfectly
dry with the exception of a little spray
which came over the bow. Tlie Benlarig re
mained in that position for four days, until
tbe gale suluded, when she was towed from
the reef into (iilbraltar. Upon examination
it wa found that forty-four frames bad been
crusbad and broken by pounding upon the
reef. Tbe total amount of oil used was about
seventy-five gallon, but this was much
more than was really necessary, as in the
emergency economy wa not considered in
anv way and oil wa freely used. Capt.
Freeman says that hi ship, cargo and the
lives of officers and crew were undoubtedly
saved by the use of oil, and h most earnest
ly recunnionds its use to vessels at anchor on
a lee shore.
