OUR SEW YORK LETTER.
New York, Jan. 5th, 1376.
You who know wliere the milk you use
comes from, can't imagine the doubt tliat
betet the New Yorker, as he Is obliged to
accept as milk into coffee, or if a mother
jrlves it to her baby. Years tgo, the dry
o . . -
no'.vitwl ho the statements maue i
milK produced from distillery-fed cows, ana
all will remember the horrible pictures of
cows la every stage of disease, which were
being milked regularly, as long as tney
could stand. It was a fact that milk was
sold In the city, from cows fed on distilled
slops, that never left their stalls, and were
milked till they rotted. There Is anotner
raid on milkmen now, the charge being less
serious, but just about as annoying. You
all know of the little girl from New York
who spent some day3 at a cousin 8 in the
- . , , .
country. On her return sne was uskcu now
she liked it. "Very well," was the an
swer, "only I don't think that Susy's ma is
a clean woman. Tfte milk we had, had a
yellow scum on the top of it, and wasn't
as pretty as the nice blue milK 1 get at
hom " The trouble now is tne rmiii is
too blue, and as there is a very stringent
law against adulterating milk, tlie citizens
liave taken it up, and are prosecuting the
milkmen, right and left. A dozen of them
were arrested, and a test case was made ot
one. In this case samples ol milk which were
regularly sold to consumers were tested
with the lactometer and it was discovered
the compound could be hardly called milk
at all. There was a basis of pure milk,
the rtst was water, reinforced with sugar,
chalk, and all sorts of nastlness, to give It
onnUteiicv and body. Aud of tbe hun
dred samples examined not one was found
pure or even fit for use. The "Orange
ivini.iv' milkmen whose pastures are
ctiii!a int out of the citv. had a trick ot
keeping milk troin souring by the use of
chemicals, and all sorts ol dodges were
shown. Thousands of the best families use
i-nnfli.tised nil k. the purity Ol wnicn is wen
established, but the appearance of the cpm-
nottnd is so against it, it doesn t looK like
milk. The prosecution succeeded In get-
rmor me n-imi nue cumj was IllHlie hm
into the Times, with a tine of f 250, where
upon tlie Milk-Dealers Association, true to
stumptail. promptly appealed the case.
it will take a long ngni to get ucm
milk in New York. - Tlie milkmen have
n.tuitiMl the best lesal talent in the city,
and will make a desperate fight. But the
nln will win. The pronositlou Is to

tered or sophisticated in any way. "Pure
milk or none," is tne war-cry, now
Real estate is still depressed, and there
n no siorr.a of improvement. There are
hnt fcw sales renorted. and the number of
empty lwuses and stores is trlghtful. Oc
cafcionally a sale is made, but it is always
at figures less than bait the price or lour
v.rs ncro. and tlieti the purchaser is not

Vsi-jint lots nobouv will tane. ncn tne
gr-at boulevard was opened in the upper
r..r hanmins. On the line of it Connolly
built his inncnificent dwelling at the pub

niflcent house, hunt on tne same terms.
iMr YmiolIv's. Tom Fields bousht an
elegant mansion on the boulevard with 16
oitvinta. Nobodv placed Its value when
the great drive was opened at less than
12S fion. One of our most trndent cash
ioinruitiies loaned on tlie estate 50,000.
it wm sold under a foreclosure aud tlie
had to buv it in. It la in tbe
market at 40.000. with no takers.
a business nroDertv near the Tribune
office was encumliered with a mortgage of
$25,000. 80 good was it considered that a
second mortgage ot $15,000 was placed
imm, it. nod atterwards a third for $10,000,
and the third mortgage was considered
nerfectlv safe. It was sold last week, by
the sheriff, tor 21,000 ! And in this fear
ful depression lies the secret of the failures
of the hanks ami insurance ponipiimea.
i'hev had their surplus capital loaned on
what was considered excellent real estate
security ; but the shrinkage in values left
them without any security at an. iiiey
had to forcloe, andjto save themselves bid
in the property, which, as in most cases it
stood empty, left them without lucome.
The city Is going through a terrible season.
and no one expects that real estate win

are coming thick and fast. The end of the
year forces settlements, and the weak ones
cannot avoid expjshig their weakness, and
are going to the wall. Many of tliem are
honest laliures, Dttt t lie vast majority are
of men who have had no rizlit to be in
business for three years. The trouble is
itist beruu But it Is for the best alter all
It is very mu.cn into a hick man taamg
medicine the drng makes Mm sicker, but
the foul matter is thrown off and he comes
out better than ever. The hard times are

York was a village. Yonne New York
arrays itself in gorgeous attire, and hires
a costly carriage, and enters Into rivalry
as to the number of calls possible to be
made. And as, despite the effort of the
temperance people to keep liquors off the
tables of those receiving, lite vast maiortty
did have wines and cordials. Young-New
York got about as tall ss usual, and arose
tbe next morning with a villainous head
ache, and a total unfitness for business.
From tho corner of Broadway and Four

Advertisers. In a short talk to adver
tisers an exchange says : we Teconeua,
reading somewhere that people wbo ad
vertlse are not only smarter but better
looking than those who do not, and tn
more we have studied the assertion, the
more truth we find contained In it. That
they arc better looking Is natural If not .
logical. Advertising is an Indication of
intelligence, and intelligence Is one of the ;
leading elements of good looks. At ail
events, tbe world believes In those wbo
advertise, and It places Its dollars In their
pockets. Such are "live" people, and la
these live days nobody wants anything t
do with any but live men and women.
Our advice to everybody except In matri
mony is to advertise. It is sure to re-
turn largely, Increase your reputation as a
business man, make hosts of friends, and
add to the number of shrewd and sensi
ble people hi tbe world, of which there has
never yet been an overstock.

hair In curl, tiske a few quince seeds, boll
them In water, and add perfumery jf yoa
like; wet tbe hair with this, and It will
keep In curl longer than from the use or
other preparation that we know of. It is
also good to keep tire hair in place on tlie
loreneaa ii you are going wv w im w iuu.
Tlie seed can Oe douche at tne urug stor

make your quinces Into Jelly, yon can save
