PRINTING IN CHINA.

A correspondent of tho Korlh Chinn
Daily A'cws of Shanghai describes n
printing establishment which ho found
in a village in the interior, about Kit
miles from Shanghai. Tho printing
was boing temporarily carried on in
the village toinp'o, ami movable typi
only was used. In the largo central
hall of the templo wore placed about
twenty ordinary square tables, on
which tho cases of typo were spread
out, very much nftor tho English
method, only taking up much more
room. At the tlmo of tho visit one
man was engaged in setting up typo,
another was rinting. Tho former
Blood before a table, on which was
what may be called tho Chinese
"case." Jt was a solid block of hard
wood, about twonly-two inchos long by
fifteen Inchos broad, and perhaps three
inches deep. The inside was hollowed
out to a depth of about a quarter of an
inch, this (lejjussion being still further
hollowed out into grooves, a(Jl)tit three
quarters of an inch deep. Tho block
had twenty-nine of these grooves,
each filled to tho depth of a quarter ol
an inch with ordinarstifT clay. With
his copy before him. armed with a
Binifll pair of Iron pincers tho com
positor began his woik; character
after charactor was transferred from
tho case and firmly pressed into tho
clay. When tho "form" was complete
a Hat hoard was placed on I ho top and
the characters prcssodSperfeotly oven
and level with tho surface of
tho wooden block, the -edge
of which was out to form the
border generally found round
every Chinoso jingo. Tho printer now
received tho form and carofully
brushed his ink over
tho typo. Tak
lug a sheet of
paper, by pressed it
down all over the form so that it
might ho brought In contact with
overy charactor. ilo then removed
the shoot, and examined each charac
ter, carofully adjusting ihoso which
wore not quite straight with tho pin
cers, and apparently novor touching
tho type with IiIm lingers. After sttfll
eient copies had boon struck olT the
typo wus distributed, each character
being rotnrnod to its particular box.
Tho typo In tho form was ot three

phieo entirely by tho clay in which it
stood. Thoy wore ouL out of some
hard wood nnd were perfectly square.
The, writer was told that tho art of
printing in this way had been handed
down in tho same family since tho
Hung dynasty, more than six hundred
years ago. No strangers were over
taught, apprentices boing always
taken from tho same clan, '$ioy wore
open to take any work at tho rate of
about twenty-live coats a day, which
Included tho two men, typo and ink,
but not paper. They wore, then print
ing fa m llyo registers. Tho custom in
that part of the country is to hire tho
printers, who bring their typo and sot
up their printing establishment on the
spot. In this way the same business
had been carried on in ono family for
six centuries, and during all this time
movable type only had been used in

A report is in circulation that the
Czar of Kussiu is about to be erowned
Emperor of Central Asia, at Samar
cand, thiit mysterious and ancient city
of tho "thousand and one nights."

il takes only fifteen days to transport
the chief products of l'okhara, silk
goods and cotV. from Tchaordjai at
A moo-Darya, to Mo.tcow. The trans
Caspian railroad is of tho greatest im
portance to :ultiv.!.toi's of cotton in
Asia, and not less so to Hussian manu
facturers, who now must get all their
cot ton from Enghimr and America,
while from one colony alone in Central
Asia, tlioro Is a yearly product from !
two hundred and fifty to throe hundred !
million pounds, at the leant a value of j
some thirty-livo or forty million dol- i

oases at Mure,hub and Tedzon, as well i
as at the Klianat of Hokhara, are high-
ly favorablo to the cultivation of not- j

railroad, it has of late boon much ex-
aggorated in various European jour-

Tho presence at the Palace Hotel ol
Ferdinand Van Zandt. ono of the rich
est mino owhors in the country, ro
called to the memory of local mininK
men his remarkable adventures. Fif
teen years ago ho wii3 in Lendville
without a cent; in the phrase of tho
times he "slung boor." Now he Is
worth millions, is sole proprietor"ol
the Hlue Bird IWino at Butte, and is
son-in-law of Sir John Lubbock.
Van Zandt was tho scion of a Knick
erbocker family possessed of a great
deal more pride than ready cash, or
even collateral. When Lendville was I
the second Pike's Peak of
the young mm left his
started for Colorado. lie arrived at I
Igaadvillo in a destitute condition; he
did not possoss onigh to purchase
sleeping room. Tlioro was a constant
stream of men flowing to and from the
gold mines; and, after working in a
menial position for awhilo, Van Znndt
left with a party for the mountains.
As partner in his poverty ho took a
young man no better equipped for the
rough life of a miner than ho was
himself, but tho two remained to
gether through all privations, and the
companion is now superintendent of
tho Blue Bird mine.
For two year thoy worked together,
but luck wus aralnst them, and all
they got from their hard labor was
just enough to keep them alive. They
woro joined by a young uwi who pos
sessed some money and it knowledge
of the country. Willi his assistance
Van Zandt was able to find a more
favorablo location, and tho men began
to save soniothing.
Six months after the arrival of the
stranger ho wort chosen to go to Now
Mexico to gather mining statistics.
Ho was not to bo gone more than
threo months, and promised Van
Znndt that ho wiQOd return to the
camp when his mission vas accom
plished. The strangorOode away, and
tho months multiplied to a year, but
ho novor roturnol. Then Van Znndt
determined to hunt him up. or at least
learn his fate. All tho money the
partners had was gathered together
and fa ken by tho young man toid in
the search for tho stranger. Van
Zaudt traveled into Now Mexico and
after some time was successful in
discoQring tho trail ol his friond.
In a few weeks lie came to the
end of tho trail and found his
friond had boon murdered. Van Zandt
spent a month at the Hcene of the
crime and succeeded in llndTng tho
slayers of lhj stranger. He' had tho
men arrested, but time passed and
there was no chance of the case com
ing U) trial. Four Mexicans were in
tho prison and Van Zandt decided they
woro all guilty of the murder. Ho
worked up a fooling against tho men
nnd headed a small party which broke
open tho jail and hanged the gang.
Van Zandt then returned to Lend
ville. There ho was ongaged by a
syndicate to go to England to secure
funds with which to slock u farm.
Val liable letters woro given to tho
young man, and ho was woll received
in London. Among tho prominent
pooplo ho mot wus Sir .John Lubbock,
whiOo daughter ho married. Sho had
a great deal of money in her own
right, and her young husband mado
good use of it. Sir John was very
much opposed to tho match, but tho
young pooplo woro determined, and,
after withdrawing objections, the Bar
onot proved a very venerable father-in-law.
Van Zandt brought his wifo
to this country. Ho purchased otho
Blue Bird mine, which ho got very
cheap. It is now clearing $100,000 a
month. Sun Francisco Call.

The most serious Tpiestion brought
beforo the Continental Congress after
tho close of the revolution second to
the ever Insoluble one of how the public
debt was to be paid was that concern
ing the disposition of the vast extent of
unoccupied lands at the West. The
charters of the large States on tho
Atlantic const extended their territory
westward to the "South Sea," and over
this they claimed to exercise full
jurisdiction. In 17.S0 New York offered
to cede part of its Western territory
for tho formation of new States and a
few years later Virginia inOle a similar
tho WestV oruinanee lor
..,.., ... iTlho temporary governwjmt of the
Northwest Territory was passed by
This ordinance was drawn
a committee of which
JofTerson was chairman,
known to be mainly
j ul hy
the work of tho fruitful brain that de
vised the Declaration of Independence.
1 1 rocomended that all the Western
territory ceded or to bo coded be
formed into nine Stutes, each extend
ing over two degree of latitude, the
said States to be named: Cliersonesus,
Sylvaiiia, Assenisipia. Metropotamia,
Polypotainia. Pellisipia. Saratoga.
Washington. Michigania and Illinoia.
It further provided that after the year
1S00, slavery should bo prohibited in
all thoio States. Tho anti-slavery
clause was lost, and some other
change woro made in tho act before it
was finally adopted. It was not how
ever, wholly satisfactory aiK further
legislation was attempted. . In 1787
Nathan Dane, as chairman of a second
committoo on tho Territories, reported
nn ordinance, which was adopted.
This provided for the organization of
the Northwest territory, and concluded
with six unalterable articles of per
petual compact. Tho lbjst provided
for oiire religious freedom; the sec
ond secured to all the inhabitants
trial by jury, tho writ of habeas cor
pus, and the political rights and privi
leges enumerated in the " Bill of
Bights:" Iho third provided for the en
couragement of schools, and fog good
faith, justice and humanity towards
Indians; and the sixth provided that
"there shall be noitlior shivery nor in
voluntary servitude in the said terri
tory, otherwise than in the punish
ment of crimes whereoOthe party shall
have been duly convicted." The op
position that had previously over
thrown this nQli-sluvory provision was
placated by tho following stipulation:
"Provided always that any person es
caping mto tlio same from whom
labor or service is lawfully claimed in
any ono of tho original States, such
fugitive may bo lawfully reclaimed and
conveyed to the person claiming his
or her labor or service aforesaid." This
was the original slave law, and its
passage represents the concession
made hy tQo anti-slavory men to se
cure the consent of their opponents to
the ordinance of 1787. Another im

waters loading into tho Mississippi
and St. Lawrence, and the carrying

TEETH WHILE YOU WAIT.
How the lli'iillil Trlo to Defy Time at
Well hh Niiturc
"Four and five dollars sets of teoth
made while waiting."
That is a portion of an advertisement
that caught a reporter's eye and caused
a visit to the ollice of the dentist who
had inserted it.
Many men doubtless remember that
certain of their relatives remained in
solitary confinement for from two to
three wgjks while waiting the arrival
of th ? id )itt sot of gi'indars. Is it possi
ble that one can have one's own worth
less teeth removed, an impression of
the mouth taken, and new teolh fitted,
and all within an hour or two's timo?
The dentist, when asked that ques
tion, answered alHrmatively. "You
see." said ho. "dentistry ii progressing
like every thing else, and it is an
every-day occurrence for me to get up
a five dollar sot of teeth in an hour
and a half. Although it would bo
much better if. after having teeth ex
tracted, the patient would wait a week
until the mouth heals and the bono
which surrounds the 1 eeth bs dissolved,
still thero are (fcer so ninny who come
here and will endure discomfort
and pain whichjif necessity follows a
quick operation rather than depart
How do I do it so quickly? Well,
by a method of process I use in vul
canizing or 'cooking' the rubber used,
for the plate, wfflch reduces that
usually long process to an hour's time.
"No. it is not so satisfactory, nor is
it any less expensive bur it is quicker.
1 he price of a false set. of teeth depends
almost entirely on the number and
size of tho platinum pins which the
teeth contain, and tho quality and tex
ture of the porcelain used.
o"Thcn, too.Olhe small manufacturer
of cliap teoth are continually otittircr "
one another's throats, and the people
get the benefit. The dentist has very
little to do in determining tho price.
Country men and farmers buy moro
false loetb than do any other cho of
people. You see, Mrs. Jones, for in
stance, has the toothaclo, comes to
town, and. Sfter frantic attemps lo get
rid of the pain, h)s all her teeth pulled,
and with a beautiful new sot, Oith
perhaps a little gold filled in front, re
turnsto her village or farm. ICrO
Smith boos Mrs Jones' teeth, and not
content to lie without anything that
Mrs. Jones has, she. too. comes to
town and has porcelain substituted for
"Country people don't take proper
or oven decent care of their teoth;
and, besides, they eat too much pie.
And thoy, too, aro the people ho
want their teoth served up in an hour's
time. A countryman comes to the city
expecting to do shopping for 'the folk
at home,' take in tho town, and pro
vide himself, and perhaps the family,
with a sot of teeth, and all one dfjy.
Sometimes ho is successful, too.
"Negroes carry a god deal of jOu-ce-lain
and gold in their mouths, too, but
they almost invariably want tho most
expensive sets, insisting upon gold
plates and plenty of gold filling. I
have made a number of sots for ne
groes which cost ono hundred dollars.
But in a year's time ;t negro will man
age to break tho best sot that 1 can
make, and then, of course, ho receives
ii bill for repairs.
"Tho gold plates arc, of course, in
comparably better than tho rubber or
thocelltOiid, and if a patient can all'ord
them 1 always advise their use." N.

NEED OF ARM-EXERCISE.

Walking on an oven surface, tho
variety of physical exoroisPwhich most
business and professional men got in
toQ:i, is woll known to be a poor sub
stitute ft.O arm-exertion. Tho reason
is partially plain, since walking is
nlmost automatic and involuntary.
The walking mechanism is set in mo
tion as wo would turn an hour-glass,
and requires little attention, much
loss volition and separate discharges
of forco from tho brain surface with
each muscular contraction, as is tho
case with tho groat majority of arm
