The sales f kiJ gloves increase each
year .about five jer cent. It would be
quite impossible to fiu'l kid enough to
supply the dummd for :lovo.s, o re
ccsitse is hid to sheep skin, and it is
asserted by several of our small-we;ir
filks that nut ten per oenf.-.f theirlove.
rfuld for kid are the 'estimate article
The pelfs of sucking 1 oobs and colts
art the principal material u-ed. II a t
1iins arc .never used for gloves ; tlcy
,yre too small, and cannot bo dressed
r .ft and diir tb.e Hit skins are tanned
fur covering jewelry boxes. A renume
jcid .j;l've is thin, fine grained, deMcate
and suff, yet very strum. Sheep k'u
gloves are coarse-grained, thick and
stoat, .od if soivcd to a thinness to re
pre-eiit k;d, it i flimsy and r fton.
J';nU r lie he i'l quarters nf the kid
and colt kin l ive. The kid kii are
Co'hcfed in ail pilf.s nf the World
while the coir kins c ine from Tartary,
where th; fi-isii of sucking colts is a
staph; article of food. The tauninr.
dressing and cutting of the gloves are
done io Paris, arid thence sent out into
the cointty to be sewed The rreat
bulk of the Pans glows hive alway
been seAed in the district f Alsace
aud Lorr.jine, and now that Germany
Ins acquired that territory, Paris, to
retain her glove trade, will be compelled
to very generally adopt the sewing
machine. Uy an ingenious application
skilled operators ca i afford to sew gloves
thirty percent, cheaper with machines
than by hand The .-hoop skin glove--eoiue
principally from Naples and Vi
enna. 'This class of gloves is very
largely worn as a preference by many,
as teing about one third the pric of
the kid article; the wearer can afford
f.vifh better economy to wear a new pair
of sheep skin gloves every day, and
thus pre-ent a, cleaner unsoilcd glove,
than in purchasing kid continually, aud
replacing them uith soiled.
For lad its wear, kid gloves are made
in ten sizes, from five and tiree eights
t eight inches, which also is an index
of their numbers. This is the size of
fthe hand they are to fit, measuring
.around the knuckle joints. Gloves are
put up io packages of a dozen, each of
a. diOeivnt color. Manufacturers are
,often at a great disadvantage in wait
ing for some one color to complete an
invoice to be sent off. One of our Bos
ton jobbers had a lot of fourteen thou
sand dozen making up in Paris when
the war broke out, that had been wait
ing shipment for weeks, delayed by the
.non-receipt of a peculiar shade of green,
..one pair for each dozen. They were
finally shipped with a different color
ported to make up the count. This
seemingly small marter of substituting
one color, Dot specially ordered, ruined
the lot, and the got ds were sold as un
The sizes of gloves Bold in the
United States are smaller than they
were twenty years ago . and the call is
jfitill for enuggt r Gti on smaller bauds.
The smallest gloves made are sold in
the American market, and now the
jSizes seven and three quarters and
,igbt are put up abroad in the assort'
iiients for this market. For the first
time, sizes five and a quarter up to six
are to be put up expressly for a Boston
house. The colors now in use are
brighter than formerly, as opera shades
are very generally worn on the streets.
Gloves from abroad are ordered eight
mouths ahead, and in the lo's to arrive
for the coming fall or winter trade are
four and five button gloves, seemingly
an exaggeration of the present popular
gauntlet style. The very general u-e
of kid gloves has altuo-t driven lisle
thread goods out of the market. These
are German manufacture, as also are
our white cotton military glove-;. It l
the cheap labor that keeps this lino of
manufacture abroad. A very good kid
glove is ui ide in Philadelphia, and at
G'oversville, New York ; some of our
retail small dealers have them in
ladies sizes. 'I hey are not so thiu and
sott as the French article, but are really
more serviceable; Ltid if the trade
would generally throw them into the
market with a legitimate American
brand, Yankee kids would be very

Curious Things Ween Ty Divers at the
llotiom of the sea.
The Charleston New, in giving an
account of the work of wreckers in
Charleston hat bor, says that the iron
clad Housa'onic lies in thirty six tee
of water, just over the bar, sixteen
miles from the city. She rests on a
hard shell bottom, and lies northwest
and southeast, upright on her keel. The
water out there is beautituliy ch ar, aud
the divers prosecute their work with
much less difficulty than at the Wee
hawken. Her deck masts an I tigging
have all been eaten a way t.y the wtin-.
and little eUe is left of her but the
huge, black hull Her propeller, shaft ,
chains and anchors, and a large porti m
of' her machinery have been hoisted
out by the machine, and at.-o two ot
the smaller guns composing her anna
nent. The rest of them ere taken up
fy the Government several years ago
The Government lus a buoy pi iotf l
aoout I00 yards eastsouth at of tlii
wreck, which enables the-wreckers to
uuess pretty closely as to h r whtrea
bouts. To render the matter a cer
tainty, however, Captain ,Sanv when
fie leaves her to com-; up t- the city,
m irks her position with a buoy fis cu
ed to the center of the hull. About
twenty feet south of tho wreck of the
doomed ship lies the hull of her des
troyer, the Confederate torpeda-boaf .
She has been visited y ihe Captain,
who reports her to be lyi'g bottom up
ward, and seemingly in good preer-'a
tion. There are no holes in her hull, and
the wings of her diminutive propeller,
now uppermost, seem to be in gund
running order She did her work efl'ee
fu illy. In the hull on thf p ut, ju ti ter
of the huge ship is a jigged hie luge
enough to drive a carriage and pan
through. The heavy oaken ribs aud
thick plants are blown in with tremen
dous power, and the Housafonic must
have gone down with but little pieptr
afion Her diminutive but dangerous'
foe met with a similar fate, and the two
now rest in silence, side by aide, at the
bottom of the fea.
Under the waters the diver seecuri
ous things and make curious acquaint
ances. Near the surface of ihe wafer,
on his way down, the diver sees sharks
of enormous dimensions, which wein
afraid of the curious minsters thus
intruding on their domain. The sharks
are never seen at the bottom tiny
keep their distance but the smab fry
at the bottom are much more soeiahle.
These, swim arcund the diver in the
most indifferent manner, and whli a
curiosity truly fetninitie, insert their
noses in every orifice in his submarine
armor. Their particular amusement is
to pry into the glass eyes, aud at times
they are as troublesome as the mosqui
toes are to us land-lubbers. All vari
eties, and immense numbers of these ,
small fish feed around on the shells,
and their curiosity renders them easy
victims to the insinuations of hook and
bait. At night the phosphorescent
sparks io the clear blue water out at
the Housatonic, light up the depths in
a wonderful manner, and the diver en
joys the illumination, though he has not
much time for enjoying the beauties ot
nature, lie stays down si hours or
less, as his work renders it necessary.
In rummaging about the ship, the Capt.
discovered several bottles of Rhine
wine and ale. He also brought up a
globular brass lamp and several me -a I
mountings from officers' swords. The
C-ptain has also iu his possession a
massive jawbone. It is evidently the
lower maxillary of a man, but its size
and the strength of teeth are wonderful.
Life becomes mote harmonious, and
beats with a k. euer pulse of enjoyment,
iu the presence ( pretty w nen. After
all, a charming linie figure, a piqu nt
lifle face, is the best remedy for half
the ills of existence, its worries, its vex
ations, its du ness, its disappointments
And even iu the larger and puore placid
types of benny ot a la ly Dumbelle, if
there is a tiu.'e of stupidity, t here is. at
any rate, an atmosphere of repose, a
Venial influence. m-Mi'diug ' mr social
converse and habits into gentler shapes
It is amusing to see how the pretti
ness of woman tells on her dr. s, how
the order and propriety of her dress
tells on the home. The pursuit of
beauty, the habit of prettiness, gives an
ileal dignity fo the vcryaira gemntof
her bonnet strings. In ever, move
merit, in the very sweep of her ample
folds, iu the of her languor, iu the
gay start of her excitement, one f-els
the softening, harmonizing influence o
fo r last look iu the glass. She may be
gay or soiruwfu1, ijmet or energetic, but
she must be prctiy. IJeauty exercise
an iu erceptible compulsion over her
whole hfe into graoful and harmonious
f irms. Her dres rUes out of the mere
clothing of man into the regions of a
science, of poetry, of art. A thousand
consideration of tate, of color, con
trasts, correspondencies, delicate ad
justm-nts of light and shade, dictate
the choice of a shawl or the tinge of a
And as the prettiest tells on dres, it
tells on the home. Flowers, pictures,
the gay notes of a sonata, the cosiest ol
enueiies, gorgeous hues of Indian tapes
try. glass work of Murauo, a hundred
xquisite somethings and nothings, are
this uutur.it setting ot pretty women
l"U ' art of the boudoir tell- On all but
the chaos of the husband's study.
Around that la-t refuge of barbarism
II oats an atmosphere of taste an 1 refine
nieot in which the pretty wife lives and
move and has her being. Aud. from
this tone of the home grows the tone ol
society, the social laws of good humor,
of propriety, of self restr nut. of consid
eritiou for others, of gentleness, ot
vivacity. The very hu-h of the roi'gh
tones that have thundered over Pel

phrase, the joyous serfdoms and idle

A Poetic Thought. The crew ofa
man of-war once saw a comet, and were
somewhat alarmed and surprised at its
appearance. The hands met and ap
pointed, a committee to wait on the
commander and ask his opinion of it.
They approached him and said : 'We
want to ask your opinion, your Honor."
" Well my boys what is it about ?"
4 We want to inquire about that thing
up there." "Now, before I answer you
first let mo know what you think it is."
Well your honor, wo have talked it
ovc, and wo think it is a star sprung
A well known English Lord is said to
have given the following instructions to
his steward : Wre nre coming down,
a large party,1 in a day or two, to eat
atrawberries and cream We want plenty
of tho latter, so don't let any of the
cows bo milked meanwhile."
In a certain small town ou the Missis
tdppi lived a man who made horse-trading
a business. He bought up horses for
a city market, an 1 wUs considered pret
ty good on a trade.
Oue day a long lean, queer, green
looking specimen of the Western coun
try arrived at the dock with a boat load
of horses. Ho inquired for the horse
jockey. Daddy sent me down wrh some
horses," he said in a half idiotic toue.
"What do you want for your horses?
Daddy said yo-i could set yure
price." was the response
" Let me godotvn and look at your
horses," taid IJiown, aud accordingly
they were soon at the boat.
lirown examined the horses, and
named the price he would give for this
oue aud that, and the country bumkin
made no otjectiou, although some of
the offer. were not more than one-half
the real price of the animals. One of
the fejstandets y;et.tly suggested to the
countryman that he was being cheated,
bu ho returned :
44 DadJy said IJrown would set the
price himself," and so lirowu had it all
his own way.
At last they came to another animal
which did not lvKk much superior to
i be rest.
' I must have more for tha? anermel,"
s;d the fellow. "Daddy says he can
Hun !" s.iid lirown, ''that nag can't
run worth a cent."
" Daddy said so, and daddy knows."
l Why, I've got one up to the. stable
that would teuit it all to hodow."
' Guess not,' aid tti fcliow. 44 Let's
try 'cm I'll bet the whole boat luid of
horses on im.
ill own smiled.
4 I'll be five thousand dollars against
your boat load," said lirowu winking to
the crowd, 4 at d these men electing
two Shad hold stakes,"
4 Brown five thousand was intrus
ted to one, and the other went ou board
the horse boat.
One i f tho crowd started to remon
strate with the poor idiotic fellow, but
lie only responded :
"Golly ! dad fold me he could run
some, and dadv'y ought to lose 'cm if
he was sich a t.itnal fool as to tell me
that when he couldn't."
Brown's sleek racer was brought
down, and lirown mounted him. The
countryman lead o it his auiuitl and
climb 'd on his back, lo . king as uncouth
and awkward as the horse he proposed
The wor l w t-8 given an 1 they started,
midst the laughter of the croud. At
first Brown was ahe:;d, and it looked as
though the poor fellow was to be bidly
beaten, when suddenly his ho,se plung
ed forward. and the horse jockey Wa; left
far behind. Such going- had not been
seen iu those pans for a long time, anl

trade, but he pushed off his boat, reso
lutely saying, "I'd better go back aud

I Who has so succeeded in imitating
