responses show tbet the tariff is still

has been arrayed against it can
secure the support of the republi

The advances, too, have been made
without the demands of employes,

Children should be taught that life is
not breathing, moving and sleeping,
simply. Life is a battle. A bottle be

Midway wo stand between the divine

as well as the outside in the night of
man. There are five means of learning.
These are observation, reading, conver

New York, July 15. Delegates to the
Brotherhood of Tailors froji 630 shops,
one irom cacn auop, met last night in
WalhalU ball to report the sentiments of
their fellow workers regarding the pro
posed general strike. All the delegates
reported that their employers had de
termined to resist the now agreement
and that the workers were in lavor of
Etriking. The meeting indorsed the
strike, and voted unanimously to place
the fall management in the bands of
Meyer PtboeufelJ, and the executive
committee from the brotherhood.
Schoenfeld said : "We are pledged to
reveal to no one the day on which the
strike will begin, so that the bosses will
not have any advantage. In fact the
line wilt not be known until fire minutes
before the strike Is ordered. While this
strike is for a new agreement, with better
wages and conditions, we shall make it

BOOTS hAVE HAD THE.IR DAY.
rho Trade Ttadly Affected by the Increased
Wear of Shoes.
Tho diminished uso of boots is n mat
ter of concern to tho manufacturers of
thorn nnd to tho producers of heavy
leather nnd heavy calfskins. Twenty
years ago tho calf boot Industry was n
leading ouo in New England.
Wholo towns woro studded with fac
tories which produced calf boots exclu
sively. For a decado tho salo has boon
gradually falling off, and today It is of
hardly any importance
A few manufacturers of elioos includo
boots as a specialty, but tho demand is
too light to amount to much. WI1011
calf boots wero mora in vogue, manu
facturers consulted tho partialities of

Tho legs wero frequently cordod with
silk stitching. Tho star nnd croscent
and other fanciful ornamentations wero
inlaid on tho legs of tho boots. Tho
soles wero inlaid with copper, zino nnd
brass nails. Tho cowboys 110 longer pay
f 15 or $20 for a pair of boots. They
want sutatauco instead of show. But
they wero not tho only wearers of calf
boots. Thoy wero oxtcuslvely worn.
Many wen prefer them today, though
tho number is growing less. Tho old
fashioned stoga hoots wero formerly
sold in largo quantities. Thoy aro well
nigh obsolete. Thcro followed a demand
for a lighter and woro stylish article.
A kip boot of lighter tostnro was pro
duced about equal in nppcaranco to tho
best calf boot, bnt this, too. has fallen
somowhat into disuse. Whoro thcro

Twenty years ago tho entire product
of Salem and Peabody was heavy boots
and brogau leather. Today thcro aro
less than half a dozen tanners making
it. Brogans and plowshares aro indis
pensable in many sections of country,
but thcro aro comparatively few exclu
sive manufacturers of theso now.
Tho Creedmorc Doni Pedro, English
ties and Creole congress aro supplanting
them. Tho declino in tho consumption
of calf boots affects tho tanners of calf
skins. It is a question what is to bo
done with heavy skins. Tho tanners
must necessarily bny more or less of
them. Thoy cannot select light and mo
dium weights exclusively, and if they
tan them thoy feel no ccrtamtr of be
ing able to dispose of them in tho fin
ished state. There is nevertheless a nso
in this world for whatever is good for
anything, and thero will bo somo way
of disposing of heavy calfskins, though

point out the direction into which they

I heard an interesting story of a fight
between an alligator and a big bull on
the Eh ores of Lake Okeechobee. Alliga

it is little visited by white men, though
Seminole Indians fish and bunt there.
Herds of cattle roam about through that
section of tho state, and the bull in
question belonged to one of theso herds.
It wa3 drinking at a small Inlet on this
lake when its noeowas caught by an al
ligator. The bull managed to frco itself
by pulling tho 'gator partly out of the
water. It then lowered its horns and
caught the 'gator, throwing it on tho
bank. When tho bull mado another at
tack, the alligator struck tho bull with
its tail and severely hurt it. The bull
managed to tear a holo in the abdomen
or soft Fpot of the 'gator, but on anoth
er chargo tho 'gator broke ono of tho
legs of tho bull by a blow from its taiL
This disabled tho bull, and tho 'gator
