Forty year ago uo man wo Mter known i
In literary circle than Ueorge Hex Urahain. I
Hi name was a household word. He wa'
(he projector and owner of Uraham's Maga
zine. Although a writer of grace and fori,
Mr. Oruhain never made any pretence to bo,
strictly speaking, a literary mau, but he wa
a generous employer, and In many Instance
wa also Uie discoverer of our best known
and grcntit writer. Ho was the first Amer
ican publisher to pay rwqieetabl prions for
literary ware. Bayard Taylor, whose earli
est pnenu he published, wa amazed wbeu

"Mnanisu Student" Umgfellow received $100
from Mr. llraliam, and for "The Village j
Blacksmith" f.V). Fenimore Cootier ouee ,
called ou him in answer to a note, Oraham
wanted him to write ten naval stories.
"1 can't write for ymi," said Cooer, rather
contemptuously, adding, "you can't pay me
"How much do you want for each toryr
"One hundred dollar in advance," was
Cooper' reply, Miiising before utterlug the
two last words, as if he thought tbey would
end the matter. W ithout a momeut's hesita
tion Urahain wrote out and banded Ciner a
check for l,0UU. The stories were written
and published, but Mr. Urnluim believes they
did his magazine no sixs-inl gixst His fame
a a large banded publisher spread, however,
and did hnn great service. His friends told
bim bis lilwrality would ruin bim. Uu the
contrary, it won him a fortune in a few years,
as he confidently expcclcd it would.
Mr. Urahain is now ift year old. rortnree

blind, but thanks to gissl treatment hi sight

the hospital to begin life anew. He has
made and lost two fortunes, and now nt tho
age of nearly four-acore years lie is n'.ioiit to
take up his s'n and try to make a new lor
tunc. He is not at all cast down, although
he hasn't a penny to IBs name. The restora
tion of his eyesight has made bim as happy

restoration to the light of day, after a -riod
of nearly live years of mrti'il and total blind
ness, is like a new birth it is being uoru

linn liilbeiplns Are Made.
Clothespins are made in the IuiiiIkt region.
They are usually made of white ash, some
times of beach,' black and white birch and
liiaplo. The wood is taken to the factory in
logs and cut Into lengths of thirty-one inches
by circular saw. These leiigthsare then cut
into blocks and the blocks again rut Into
sticks. The sticks are placed under another
saw, and cut into the required lengths. Next
the turner takes n bund at them and from
here they go to the slotting machine. They
are plm-ed in troughs by the oHi'ntor, the
nnchino Dirking them up and slotting them.
They nre then placed in a revolving pi drier
going thenco to the polishing cylinder and
then to the pucker.

Thnt old saying, "Once a counterfeiter
always a counterfeiter." is true In w.w case
out of every l,K. There is a fascination
alsiut the nianiifucture of spurious coin that
when a man follows it for a while and geU
rid of his stulf be become bolder, until lie is
finnlly captured. Long years of Imprison
niciit do not seem to wear out the ardor for
the counterfeit mol.L There Is counU'rfeit
ing carried on in a mild degree all over the
country. We find the young "cross roads"
man milking a little occasionally with his
plaster of puris mollis, and then we find that
some steriiityier has applied his art with
papier macho and turned out a very good
looking dollar made of type metal. By the
stereotyping process a better milled dollar is
secured tliiui by any other process, but that
class of men very seldom go heyoud tbe ex-
-riiiientul stage. They may muke onoor
two, and then llnd they can do so and quit
through fear. Ktnrvntion sometimes drives
a mun into the busbiest of making spurious
coiiu, but this is not often. The case it very
rare that a counterfeiter ever escape detec
tion; iu fuct, at this age of the world it 1
simply Impossible for them to escape for any
