"WORK AND WANT IN THE
Robort P Porter, m a letter to
the ir. Y. Tribune, written from
Lye "Waste, "Worcestershire. Eng
land, says :
This region of country is located
part in tho county of Stafford and
part in that of "Worcester. The
distriot is badly drained; not
lighted except by the flames of
the furnaces and forges. It is
said that about 2,000 persons are
engaged in this dismal district
making nails and rivets. Though
within seven miles of the great
and prosperous city of Birming
ham, no one seems to know or care
about this army of men, women,
young girls and children con
demned to a life of wretched sla
very. The district itself has aptly
been described as a grimv chaos.
Huge mounds of black and dirty -vrhite
rubbish; melancholy asses
cropping the sparse, shriveled herb
age on the banks of worked-out
pits; stagnant pools, spreading
like dead seas between the jum
bled, natural and artificial hills;
cinder-strewn meadows threaded
by filthy foot-paths ending at
smutty stiles; higii roads fringed
with a wear' continuity of dingy
red-brick houses, in the midst of
which a yellow-washed house
looks almost as pure as a lily;
small boys clustered on the roads,
kicking and punching and bespat
tering their smaller feminine ac
quaintances; bigger ones loafing
around the little dingy public
houses; narrow, ragged hedged
lanes, leading nowhere in particu
lar, pit-failed with inky puddles
through which unwashed, unshav
en, heavy-booted men flounder
and splash, with their hands in
their coat pockets, and vicious
looking dogs cowering at their
heels; jaundiced canals crowded
with lanky black barges; sloping
tramways, almost obliterated by
gritty, viscous black mud; crossing
and converging railways, with
roadside stations that look like
recently emptied soot-warehouses;
gibbeted black colliery wheels;
dilapidated engine houses and
cottages sinking, on one side,
into the undermined earth; dingy
red and clay-colored cones and
domes, iron works furnaces and
chimneys of all kinds, sending up
smoke and flames. Tiiis is no ex
aggerated picture of what I saw
in my walk, which began at Dud
ley, and thence via. Nctherton,
Rowley, Regis, Cradley, Stour
bridge, through this dismal place,
and back to Halesowen.
The inhabitants of this desolate
district. are among the most indus
trious, and yet the most wretched
in England. They are engaged
in making all sorts of nails, rivets
and chains. The work is done in
lktic "smithies" attached to the
hovels in which the workers re
side, and for which the usual rent
seems to be about 2s. 4d. to 2s. Gd.
a week a trifle over 50 cents.
These houses, as a rule, contain
little or no furniture. They are
filthy and wretched beyond de
scription. What spare time the
unhappy nailer's wife gets from
nursing the babj and preparing
the meager meals, is spent in the
smithy fire, pounding away at the
anvil until lato'at night. But the
extra, work that the woman does,
combined with that of one child
say a girl of 14: will barely keep
die family from starvation. For
example: An expert nailer, work
ing steady from Mondav merning:
to Friday night, can only make
two and one-half bundles of iron
rods into nails, for which he gets
Cs. 74 d. per bundle, or, for his
week's work, lGs. Sd. exactly 4.
Now. his vife, by working every
moment of her spare time and
late into the night neglecting the
wretched little children can make
a bundle of common nails, for
which she is paid 3s. Id., and the
little half-starved, stunted girl of
fourteen, with her brown arms,
and steady, uurring aim, will
hammer out half a bundle, Is. 6 d.
Iri'this way mothers,- daughters
and mere children toil and slave
on from year to year indeed, one
sum told me nails bad been
made here for over u century in
this way. How they exist is a
mystery to me. The London
8ta.7ida.rd has dared to speak out
on the condition of labor in the
Black Country, and when the
paper makes the following state
menr, I can say that it actually
accords with some of the horrible
facts which have come within my
observation during my stay in
this dismal regien:
"Women within a few days of
their confinement have been known
to work in the agon' of exhaustion
in order to earn a few pence at
the 'hearth1 not the 'hearth' of
home, but the hearth of the 'forge;'
they have been known to return
to work in a day or two after
childbirth, emaciated in constitution
weak and weary from the want of
simple nourishment. Their chil
dren, ragged and ill-led, have had
to lead miserable and wretched
lives, with no hope before them
but a life of wickedness and
Odors on Milk.
The London 3WI; Journal cites
instances where milk that has
stood a short time in the presence
of persons sick with the typhoid
fever, or been handled by parties
before they are quite recovered
from the small-pox, has spread
those diseases as effectually as if
the persons themselves had been
present. Scarlatina, measles and
other contagious diseases have
been spread in the same way.
The peculiar scent of a cellar is
indeliby impressed upon all the
butter made from milk standing!
in it. A few puffs from a pipe or J
cigar will scent all the milk in aj
room, and a smoking lamp will do j
the same. A pail of milk stand-
ing ten minutes where it will take,
the scent of a strong-smelling sta-,
ble, or any other odor, will imbibe '.
a taint that will never leave it. A j
maker of gilt-edged butter objects j
to cooling warm milk in the room i
where his milk stands for the
cream to rise, because he sa?s the
odor escaping from the new milk
while cooling is taken in by the
other milk and retained, to the in
jury of his butter. This may seem
like descending to sm.tll things,
but it must be remembered that it
is the sum of such little things
that determines whether the pro- j
ducts of the dairy are to be sold J
at cost or below, or as a high
priced luxury. If milk is to be
converted into an article of the
latter class it must be handled and
kept in clean and sweet vessels,
and must stand in pure, fresh air, j
such as would be desirable and
healthy for persons to breath'.
C. Widemann communicates u
new method of making an iuvisi- J
ble ink to Die 2Fatur. To make
the writing or drawing appear
which has been made upon paper
with the ink, it is sufficient to dip
it into water. On drj'ing, the
traces disappear again, and reap
pear by each succeeding immer
sion. The ink is made by inti
mately mixing linseed oil, 1
part; water of ammonia 20 parts;
water, 100 parts. The mixture
must be agitated each time before
the pen is dipped into it, as a lit
tle of the oil may separate and
float on top, which would leave an
oily stain upon the paper.
Three seems to be the number
of fortune and progress. The
third effort wins, and the follow
ing as related by Mr. M. E. Dodge,
Belfast, Me., is no exceptien: 1
had a person in my employ last
wiuter who was badly afflicted
with acute rheumatism. He ap
plied many different remedies
without obtaining an' relief, un
til I bought him a bottle of the
Great German Reined', St. Ja
cobs Oil. After applying three
bottles of the Oil,he was complete
ly cured and has never been
troubled with rheumatism since.
It beats all the remedies I ever
saw or heard of.
As Spring -nith its change of weath
er creates a revolution in tho very
bowels of the earth, so does Pfunrler'a
celebrated Oregon Blood Purifier cre
ate the desired change in the human
system. Send in your orders either
direct to Pf under & Co., or any

Gathering and Drying Tea In Japan.
Tea gathering is commenced in
May. Girls are employed, at an
average of five cents a day, from
sunrise to sunset. The sprig of
leaves is nipped off carefully with
the finger nails and deposited in a
basket; and other servants carry
these b:iskets as they are filled, to
the tea planter's house and neces
sary out-houses. Here other em
ployes spread them out on large
palm mats and here the first and
only adulteration essayed by the
tea planter is executed. Having
decided the percentage of ex
hausted leaves to mix with his
fresh leaves these are put also on
the mats. The drying is in the
open air and in the sunlight. That
having been completed, the next
operation is the curling. To effect
this the dried leaves are
poured into open cast-iron recep
tacles over a charcoal furnace be
neath of accurately graded heat.
Sufficient laborers are placed
around these pans to constantly
take in their hands the leaves as
they become heated and to roll
them. "When the curling is done
the leaves arc packed in coarse,
cheap boxes, freighted to the
nearest tea market and there sold
to foreign tea dealers. Every
foreigner keeps a special variety
of tea-taster, who has to tell the
quality of the fresh leaf and to
make a guess at the amount of
leaves that have already done

The fruit crop of the whole
North Paeific shows the effect of
the season. "Western Oregon and
Washington will have small 3'ield
of all fruits, owing' to the prema
ture opening of sprin
pleasant month of March induced
the flowering of fruit trees earlier
than usual. Then came a month
of cold rains that checked tho
flow of sap and fruit blighted.
This is unusual, and we do not
recollect in all the history of the
country such a failure. Some
varieties do much better than others.
The cool weather of May has not
favored orchards and yoangfruit.1
fell from the trees all that month.
