not only acted as medical quacks, but
also as fortune-tellers. Queen Anne

stepped into a fashionable and paying
practice after ho obtained the royil

which ho wrote (by tho hano of a scr be),
but that made no dillerenco to the
wealthy fools, his patrons. .-The
Queen's other favorite quack oculist

Anabaptist preacher. Crantwas in the
hab.tof publish ng minute accounts ol

Tho casual visitor would never sus

Granville, Mass., sonds out into the
world thousands of no'sc-inakins in
struments cheap, it is true, but none
the less welcome to tho avera:o boy.
This plivo can practically bo called the
center r.nd heart of tho drum-making
busincs. It turned out '200,000 last
year. It was in 18.11 that tho idea of
engag'ng in tho drum-making business
lir.st suggested itself to a Mr. Cooley.
Ho had been to Pitbdiold. whore a rela
tive of his Samuel Cooley, Was making
a fw drums in an old b.iVn. Disgusted
with tho business, Samuel Cooley was
about to throw it up; lie offered it to his
nephew, John, with the remark that
there was doubtlosj money in it. Ho
tiirnmg to Granville, J P Cooley
broa bed the subject to his friend Noble,
whom he found a ready listener. They
wojit to work, made a drum,
which is st 11 cherished at the old shop,
look it to Boston, showed it, re
co cd oiders, an?i coming baot investo 1
.T''l..10 in material, and thus started
probably the biggest concern of its kind
in tho world. The first year, lu.11, they
built a little shed and altogether turned
out 160 drum-, ma nly of one pattern.
Year by year the business increased,
their quarters had to be enlarged, their
holn multiplied, and to-day 1-5 111 11
ami women aro kept busy turning out
daily about. 1.1M0 drums.
ithin the last four years business
has greatly dovo'opod. The old-huh-lonod
driiin with woe de.'i barrel, wh'ch
was formerly the only k n 1 in tho
market, is being rapidly supplanted by
the neater and 1 ghter model with a tin
barr. 1. For tho manufacture of the
Infer tin of various colors is employed,
blue and red pro loniinating, though the
larger quantities aro made of a brass
imitat'on. This tin comes in sh ets of
two sizes, 11x20 inches and '20x28, tho
sheets being packed in cases hold ng
11'2. These sheets are tirst sent ton
knife, which cuts them into various
lengths, from which drums' vary
ing from s'x and one h-t't inches
across the head to thirteen inches are
made. Tins done the strips are each
punched w th a hole, then secured and
tightened together. Hoops are placed
on the inside rims and the barrel is
then ready to receive the sound ngsk'n.

seems with all their notions and liiult
plex ideas oven inag 11 dive Yankees
have not I) en able to prepare success
fully such skins from American s'loop.
Consequently all are impo'ted from
