'Ttse .1 - YOL. X. TOMBSTONE, ARIZONA, AUGUST 4, 1888. no..;i. lilif Need of Mechanical Expert. The present condition ot the sewing machine business Is not favorable to the development ot men who shall be thor oughly educated both In tho commer cial and mechanical shies of the trade. Men die when their usefulness Is past, as machine Is destroyed when Its parts are worn out. This depletes t he ranks surely, and it Is the only thing that seriously lessens the number of sewing machine men In this country. It is as remarkable as it a fortunate thing for the sewing machine trade that a man who becomes identified with it thoroughly, seldom leaves it till he dies. Where are the coming txperts coming from? In the factories, where every man Is engaged duplicating the same pieces forever, and the adjusters-mid inspectors never see any practical work? There neither is opportunity nor practice pos sible in the factories for tho development of .experts. In . the1 agencies, where the manager was a' bookkeeper or canvasser, and 'Who Is a rusher? Where the repairers are to notoriously incompetent as to be come the butt of ridlculef And tho man ufacturing man is a specialist operator who does not' know anything whatever of mechanical construction? There is no ma terial in the office for the making ot ex perts. To make experts you must take mechanically proficient men (Jacks of all trades will not do), and teach them the practical side of the business in the places where sewing machines are used as tools. To know, one make or'style of machine is' not sufficient; he must understand all of them, and understand them well. In ad dition, he must study machines of obso lete patterns, for that which is new is fre quently old, and often machines have failed for very trivial causes, and the per son who desires to become an expert in the sewing machine business must know Its mechanical history thoroughly. There is plenty of work to be done by the man who begins today to acquire the knowl edge which the old experts have gained in forty years, but by the time he knows it well there will be a demnnd for his ser vices. Sewing Machine News. Th New Emperor a an Athlete. The new German emperor is or was 'before stricken with his present ominous .malady a splendid athlete, both on fond and in water. "Years ago," says a writer In Gallgnani's Messenger, "I was swim ming in the river near 'Cologne, when a youthful giant, leaping into the water from the scaffolding of the military bath, came clown upon us with a terrlllc splash, greatly disturbing the equanimity of old Father Rhine. The noisy arrival was the heir to the Prussian and German thrones, a passionate sportsman alike In the liquid as on frozen water. Stretching himself full length, and striking out with extraor dlnary vigor, he made several circuits of the extensile basin, and presently be gan to dive in' the most accomplished and effectual style. "A bevy ot small boys, who had been Jumping into the water after him, intent upon sharing the honors of the bath with the illustrious visitor, next attracted his atteation. Seated upon a floating log, he would skim along the greenish waves, surrounded by the delighted youngsters and perpetrating all manner of tricks upon them, like Neptune playing with Tritons; or, changing the game, ho .would place the boys upon the log and drag them and push them about amid the exultant shoots of 'the dripping- host. When he left at last, the bovs hurried after him in a body, and, dressing with the utmost' ex pedition, stood awaiting tho prince as he emerged from his cabin. Amused at their hearty cheers, and averse from cutting on terra flrma those who had been boon com panions in la less stable element,' the crown prince Invited his juvenile friends to the-Aquatic restaurant and stood treat to the whole lot." New-York Tribune. ttoclrta -Worshiper of Ilenare. At three ot the ghats crematories were 'being made, at each ot two there was one body being burned, but at the other five pyres were.-burning, and two corpses were wrapped in white cloth, one lying with the lower limbs in the water, to be ere mated wheBtthe, pile should -be ready. A sewer from the city was emptying its reeking, filthy sewage Into the river not twenty feet above the spot where the body was lying, and several bathers were gulping down great mouthfnls of the water about ten feet below, the dead body strange, infatuation! Not tar from this and above it was a deep tank, in which' was as nasty a compound as one could Imagine; It was, say, fifteen by thirty feet in dimension., Its waters had not been changed (for months. .Thousands have bathed in It,, and great quantities ot marl colds and other 'flowers,' milk and confec tions are daily thrown into.it as offerings, until it looks as 'fetid as a cesspool, yet dainty wbmeif, Whose necks, arms and ankles are weighted down with rarest ' jewels, lay aside -their outer garments ot embroidered gauze' awTsilk and lave' their faces and rounded forms in the stinking slime, anclbelleve themselves' washed from impurities. Carter Harrison's Letter.- 5 J ''- " Austria's Source of Wealth. One ot Austria's great sources of wealth Is wood, and perhaps no counfrv can boast of such an amount ot forests when com pared to Its area.- Thejincipal yood pro ducing provinces are Croatia', Sla'vonla and the former military frontier. In these provinces the woods occupy 8,887,234 acres, ot which 20 per cent, is younger growth and 80 per 'cent, timber forest; CO per cent, ot this quantity Is in tho, hands fit the government or- ot largo land .owners, 34 per cent, oeiong to tne parisnes, .01-2 per centals in the possession ot the clergy and a ! per cent, is owned Dy ingle peasants, were tne ground covered by, forests divided among nil the Inhabitants, .the portion falling to the lot of each would be 1 8-4 acres. Tho cubic measurement of1 this mass of wood is l,055,960,840cublc feet, which, reckoned at nine-tenths of a penny per cubic foot, gives a total of 39.707,200. The yearly Increase is 181,84.9,914 cnbic;feet, which, calculated at the value as given above, amounts to.upward of 500,000. Chicago Times. Story of A. Uronson Alcott.

Trials and Tribulation of People Who I.lve In i Die Apartment Houses. Beyond, however, the merely construc tive faults He the real causes for dissatis faction with life in a flat. They have no resources Tax them ever so little, they cannot respond. Friends cannot be en tertained in them with any satisfaction; to be sick in a flat intensifies every ache and pain; there is not a cheerful room in the suite when the parlor is shut off and one must lie in the small, not too airy bed room, with all the varied sounds of not only one's own household but also ot that above and below, distinctly and severally audible to the weakened nerves and tired or'feverish brain. And if a flat is no place to be sick, stul less is it a place to die. Grief there, has neither privacy nor sympathy. The mourning pennant must flutter from the common entrance door through which strangers to the beloved dead Indifferently pass; .all the paraphernalia of death, the coming and colng of tho undertaker, the visits of condoling friends,-and finally the last sad bearing away, must be carried on under tho curious if half concealed scrutiny of the fellow tenants. A flat should be like heaven there should be neither sickness nor death, neither mar rying nor giving in marriage, neither births, feasts nor funerals, nor any sor row nor pain not one, Indeed, ot the emergencies of life should be encountered under its mongrel roof I There, too, are the children in flats, " the pity of it, Iago," there are the chil dren. It is a matter of interesting spec ulation to reflect what sort of a race be developed from a few generations of flat children. Physically the child of a flat Is subjected to all sorts of restraint; the jan itor exercises a stern control over his ex uberance; his toys and litter can be really nowhere iu the cramped quarters which his family ocoupy; his play ground is the streets. Nor are his manners and morals subjected to the right sort of influence. Said a lady in the writer's hearing not long ago: "In the course of a search lately for a flat, I entered an apartnent house in a desirable location uptown. The entrance was attractive, almost imposing, and the neat, polite hall boy added to the pleasant impression which I received. After looking at the flat to let, I detained the boy a moment In tho hall tor some further details, when our conversation was interrupted by a noisy clatter ot some one descending from' an upper story. When the person came Into view I saw a large, slouchlly dressed woman, coarse and forbidding in feature, who, ignoring my presence, advanced upon the hall boy and began to upbraid him with harsh vehemence for some duty unperformed. "It would be impossible for n gentle woman in any station of life to reprove a servant for whatsoever' offense, in the manner and language which she em ployed, and I hurried away feeling that nothing would Induce me to place my young children in a position to possibly assist as witnesses to future similar affairs." And such neighbors must be encountered moro or less in sharing with them thejprlvllege of a common entrance. Margaret H. Welch in The Epoch. Politeness Not Died Ont. Politeness has not quite died ont, although a man has to be full to rise to that height of dignified grandiose chivalry which used to be quoted as elegant wit. He is an Irishman, and he had been' hav ing a delightful evening. The poetry had begun to bubble out ot .him and he had reached a state of emotional politeness. They had been together a great many hours. They had met a hundred times be fore, but the Irishman had no recollection ot it at that period ot the morning. They were parting, "Sor," said the Irishman, "it has given me the complatest delolght to mate you this evening." "The same to you." "Yes,.,sor; I am a man ot deep sym pathies and sincere loyalty, and I like you. You are, sor, one ot the most charming men I ever met. You are, indade:" "Thank you.'' ''Besides, sor," and the Irishman took off his hat ard made a profound bow, "I always pay respect, sor, to a' handsome man." "That, major, is self-respect, "."said the other, with an equally prof ind saluta tion. Then they each wer.o' off in the wrong direction. San Fraruisco Chronicle "Undertone " What Made the Taller Mad. A Wabash avenue tailor was telling me the other day of n certain Chicago man, a born rich nr!stocrat,-who returned from Europe not long since with 125 suits of clothes, 'all made in London. Of course the Chicago tailor didn1 like this, and had several unpleasant remarks to make about the codnshness of a man who would buy 125 suits of clothes at once, and was par ticularly severe upon the un-American, unpatriotic purchase of them ina foreign city. I was more interested in knowing what a man could do with 125 suits ot clothes, and how long they would last him. "Well" said the tailor, "he will wear, on' an avcrago three suits a day. None of them will he care to wear moro than ten or fifteen times, and so I reckon tbnt-hispresent outfit will last himtill he can make another trip to Europe, per haps this summer, or at the latest next year. Even in Chicago the.London tailor craze has taken from us some of our most profitable trade, and in New York the tailors are finding London competition to be quite a serious matter." Chicago Herald. A Valuable Man. "So you think you can dress a show window so that the ladles will all stop and look ntj it, do youf" asked the man ager of 'a dry goods store of an applicant for work. "Yes. sir, I do." "Well, sir, what j ne first thing you would do?" "I'd put a big mirror in the window and" "That's enough, yung man; wo don't want you as an employe. We'll take you in as a partner.
