Tho first hog-houso I built were
mado twelve foot wide, but I have now
had four that were eight feet wido, and
I find tills width amplo to ncoomnio
dato as ma y hogs as can eat at tho

this width. It is sometimes dosirnhlo
to move a house a short distance, and
ao I usually make them eight by six
teen feet, and find that threo men can
roll one of thoni from fifty to ono hun

best to change tho location. A house
eight by sixteen feet will accommodate
from twelve fo fifteen store hogs
through tho winter, and is largo enough
to fatten ten largo hogs In. Tho bill of

WAGES IN JAPAN.
Th rT Anked by JPneM lborr for
n Infnrlor Klml of Work.
Since the tablo of wages In Tokio
Mven ".a tho third report of the royal
Commission appointed to inquire into
the causes of the depression of trade and
industry, is apt to be taken as it standi
by tho outside world, I shall give a few
facts of such tradesmen as I havo bad
Carpenters. 40 to GO cent. Tlio first
figure is out of ail question. For about
au'ar I employed a carpenter off and
on at 60 cents a day-that is, when time
iiertnitted. Ho would begin work at
about 9 a. m., "work" till 6 p. m., and
ilevoto about three hours a day to
smoking ami thinking ho was a great
thinker in his way and eating, and
tho work he did in tho remaining six
hours with the awkward toys that pass
for tools here, an English or an Amer
ican carpenter would do in ono hour,
which brings a Japanese carpenter's
wages to CO cents per hour, or taking
the"day at eight working hours, to f 1.80
And I have employed carpen
ters at 75 cents and $1 per day with tho
Plasterers, 45 to 55 cents per day; to
be had at that rato at about a week's
notice. 'J be vear before last I had to
employ two plasterers to repair a place
iu the wall of a house where a piece of
plaster of about two feet square had
fallen out. The two artists turned up
at. 10 ii. in., and. sittimr down upon a
couple of empty wine-cases, lit their
pipes. At about lUiUO ft. in. ono oi
them approached tho damaged place
within a yard, took a mental photo
graph of it, and sat down. At, 11 a.
in. a mutual friend nppeareil. who was
warmly welcomed, and. after smoking
a pipe or two, amused, them by stand
ing on his head, and ny tliat timo iney
had got very hungry and mado a pause
of two hours for tiffin. Pipes again.
Then the one' who had carefully sound
ed the wall knocked another pieco of
plaster down. Pipes again. By 5 p.
m. they had made the hole about three
times its original size, and wcro so
thoroughly exhausted that they left off.
Next day a stray drop of water, where
ever it may havo come from, lighted
on one fellow's noso and mado them
conclude it was going to rain, so that
no work could be dono in tlio after
noon. Well, to cut matters short,
those two squaro feet of plaster that
is river mud cost mo $:). An English
or American plasterer would havo sent
one of his boys and boxed his ears if
lie did not como back in an hour..
Painters space will not permit to
go through tho wholo list 25 to 35
cents per day. 1 have somo work for
a painter at present, and am willing to
give 40 cents per day, but the man will
not work under 50 cents, and says it
will tako him eight or ten days to do
the job. Now, I estimate the time in
which tlio work can be done and should
be done and there aro but few things
but that I have done myself at two
and one-half or threo d ys timo of
tine working hours, so that I would
be paying at tho rato of $1.50 to $ t.tio
per day, and have things at sixes and
sevens for more than ii week.
I could give instances of tho same
kiud ad infinitum, but then tho cour
tesy of newspaper editors does not and
can not. extend to writing books in tlio
columns of their papers, and if I havo
thrust forward a few hard facts here, 1
have dono so from tho reason that
those who contemplate trying their
chances in this country in tlio near
future may not bo misled and after
ward crv out in tho bitterness of their
disappointment that they havo been de
ceived, and become blind to much that
is good and to bo appreciated in Japan.
I am not thus disappointed this to
guard myself against any such sus
picionfor I have returned to Japan
of my own freo will, knowing all this,
ami much that I have said here and
much of similar import I have said to
those whom the Kinur has delighted to
honor; yet I nin as welcome at their
palaces or residences as ever I was. 1
mav hone, therefore, that the reason I
have just given for making these re
marks will be accepted, all tho more as
my bread would very probably be but
tered much thicker on tlio other side.

sole ambition seemed to be to torment
the dog by dropping things upon him
from abovo, or by jumping towards
him while trying to sleep, and then
scam ering away up tho rigging,
where tho dog could not loiiow. no
place was safo for the dog to tako a
nap. The monkey was only safo while
aloft, for tlio dog was tlio stronger,
and delighted in shaking the monkey
whenever ho could get at him.
Ono very hot Sabbath afternoon 1
was sitting under tho awning, try.ng
to read; just opposite me, under tho
shadow of the poop-deck of the rice
ship, lay tho Newfoundland dog,
stretched out in the most complete and
utter abandonment of exhaustion, ap
parently fast asleep. Tho monkey was
upon tlio lop of tlio forward lions, evi
dently studying some mischief. When
a man is studying some difficult matter
ho will some times scratch his h: ad.
The inoiikc-y scratched himself all over,

tlie dog was sound asleep, the monkey
very evidently thought so, too, for now
he proceeded to put into execution a
plan that, I think, be matured when
sitting on the forward house. He qui
etiy ran forward to tho fore rigging
ami up . fore-top, then taking the
niai'.i-top-gallant stay ho ran up that to
the niam-top-gallant yard, tlien down
to tho main-top; after again making
suro that the doz was fast asleep lie
ran up to the niizzon-top-gallant stay
and then down to the nihzoii-top; hero
ho sat down and, apparently, had a
hearty laugh at tho trick ho was about
to play upon tho dog. Having enjoyed
Ins laugh, he very cautiously ran down
the mizzcii stay, until ho reachud

twenty feet abovo him. Once more ho
pr weeded to try the tlog; riot a muscle
moved. The nionke, jumped up ami
down, h'ung down, lioldingon with ono
hand only, but no movement of tho
dog showed itself. So, getting himself
together, he measured, carefully, tho
distanco and position, and then let go
and jumped for tho tlog.
Instantly all was changed on deck;
the dog sprang up with ears and tail
erect, wide awake, anil ready to givo
him a cordial welcome. Of course, it

and evidently trying to understand

and, in spite of tho heat, ran up and

I think now, as I thought then, that
tho dog was not asleep, but too nearly
exhausted by the heat to care what tho
