BrlaneDtra Blade of Peat and th Dmt

j , : , Geaeirailly Used. -
Among the' several branches - of
(Vrman industry which, deserve the
ettention of Americans by reason of
toeir economy, their recovery or Titil-i-ation
of some raw material which
exists unused in this country, or be
cause they invoke the most intelli
gent application of scientific knowl
edge to technical processes, may be
reckoned , the . manufacture of bri
quettes from brown coal, peat and
the dust and waste of coal mines. -
Briquettes form the principal do
mestic fuel of Berlin and other cities
and districts- in Germany; they are'
used for locomotive and other steam
firing1, and are employed for heating
in various processes of manufacture.
For all these uses they have three
tangible advantages: They are clean
and convenient to handle; they light
easily and quickly, and burn with a
clear, intense flame; they make prac
tically no smoke, and are, withal,' the
cheapest form of fuel for most, pur
poses. Like most other important Gernjan
industries, the briquette manufac
ture is controlled by a syndicate.
which includes among its members
thirty-one firms and companies, or
more than nine-tenths of all the pro
ducers in the country, and regulates
the output and prices for each year.
From the official report of the syndi
cate for 1901, which has recently ap
peared, it is learned that the total
output during last year was 1,566,385
tons, -to which , is to be added the
product of makers outside the syn
dicate, consumed . at .works, small re
tail sales, etc., making a grand total
of 1,643,416 tons.
The average selling price in large
quantities was $3.16 a ton, .,

MY TWO NEIGHBORS
WAS in June. I was working
hard from early morning till late
at night, finishing my medical studies.
I had just moved into a modest lodg
ing, situated on the fifth story, in
the rear. Across tile way, in another
building, facing the same yard,, a
window opposite mine attracted my
attention. This window opened ear
ly in the morning, closed at a quar
ter to nine and opened again regular
ly between twelve and one at night.
Who was the occupant of the
room? I am very near-sighted and
cannot distinguish "anything at a few
yards without my glasses.' .
One morning, seated at my table
writing (with my eyeglasses, : of
course) I saw at the opposite win
dow an elderly woman, armed with a
feather broom and a dusting cloth,
cleaning the room carefully. She
wore a clean, cheap calico wrapper,,
and over it a large, blue checked cot
ton apron, with a bib. The rather
Wide sleeves, turned up to tne elbow,
displayed fine, white arms; on her
hands she had old kid gloves an in
nocent coquetry, I thought to my
tself. Still, she seemed very alert, going
to and fro, in what I took for a
I examined her more closely.
Alas! her head, covered with a few
scanty gray locks, revealed only too
well the ravages of years. I could
not distinguish plainly the features
of my neighbor. Was her face' wrin
kled and faded? At a distance she
looked rather fresh and rosy. .
Still I must not forget a detail; it
is that she seemed to be as near
sighted as, if not more so than, my
self, for she constantly wore spec
The room cleaned, my" neighbor
warmed up several things on a gas
stove and went in another room, car
rying them on a large tray.
Then precisely at a quarter to nine
another woman, still young, from 30
to 35 at most, came to close- the
This woman was correctly dressed,
even with a certain elegance a black
skirt, well fitting silk waist, irre
proachable neckwear of muslin and
lace, and a capote trimmed with
beads and violets', and with a well
adjusted veil on her very blonde hair
too blonde, as it suggested at once
some bleaching compound.
As much as my sight would allow
me to judge her complexion was rosy
and velvety, and her bands the moat
beautiful I ever saw.
Evidently she was the daughter of
the other, for she resembled her- as
one resembles another with a differ
ence of 20 years.
And nearsighted also.
Only, Instead of spectacles like-her
mother, she wore under her veil very
light eyeglasses, hardly visible from
where I was.
Decidedly coquetry was in the fam
ily as well as short-sightednessi.
'.; II. - :
I soon Bad1 other proof of itv.
Once armed with my opera glass-
you can see I was getting greatly in
terested in- my neighbors I took a
notion to watch her as she crossed
the yard with a light and graceful!
step.; She- had on a tailor-made- cape,.
gloves that seemed very fresh;- andt
her dress was held up carefully over
an elegant petticoat and displayed
dainty shoes; everything, even to her
parasol, was in the best style.
But how is it, I . thought on that
day, that one never sees tne- mother
and daughter together?
Another thing struck mes.
"Why does, the "daughter- leave' It
the drudgery to the mother while
she herself lies in bed? She has to
sleep in the morning to make up for
her night's outing, as she returns
only after twelve at night," I said to
myself half aloud in my burst of in
dignation. Where does she go after her nice
breakfast, so finely attired?" I went
on. "Not to a workshop; it is too
late. Where does sle go, while her
poor old mother ' staves at . home?
ORIGIN OF ICE CREAM. ,
Tne Proeeea of Bvolntion Date Baelc
, to tbe Besrfnnilnj; of the Sev
, ' enteeuth. Ceatarjr.
Ice cream, has been brought" to its
present state of perfection by a grad
ual process of evolution from tie
original idea, which dates back to the
beginning of 'the seventeenth century,,
says What- to Eat. At that time iced
fruits and cups made' of ice first ap
peared at banquets. Like many other
good . things for the table, ice cream
claims Paris for its birthplace, and yet
.it was not a Frenchman but an Ital
ian nsmed Preeope Couteaux who first
thought out the idea of icing lem
onades and liquers. From this was
gradually evolved over 10O years later
ice cream, or iced butter, as it was then
called, from its resemblance to that
article of food.'5
While all civilized hatiops serve ices
'in great variety, we are apt to think
- of ice cream as an essentially Ameri
.can dish, probably because frozen des
serts of all kinds are more generally
used in this country than in aiix other.
Vice cream first made its appearance in
America in Philadelphia at the end of
, the' eisrhteenth century. It was then
considered a great luxury.-and, conse
quently, was rarely seen except on
state occasion's. It was not wifliin the
reach of ordinary mortals until 1S00,
when an Italian confectioner estab
lished an ice cream house, as it was
then called, at .German town, a stiburb
of Philadelphia. . v. . ;
