that he be heard on the bill; that it was

fifteen men went out to the residence of
State Senator Brown, Republican, who is
very ill, and carried him into Graysville,
a distance of six or seven miles, on a
stretcher. He will remain, in Graysville
to-night, and to morrow morning will
leave for Springfield, in a special car. He
is very weak, but his friends think he
will stand the trip. He is paired with
Senator Bridges till to-morrow, and upon

Thisqnestion was asked in a recent
law suit concerning n man who had
acted nu pleasantly. The answer was.
"he was so cross that when he called
np the cows at mliking-time it made
the milk sour." Probably this
poor fellow has dyspepsia. But the
worst dyspeptic can be cured by
using Brown's Iron Bitters. Mr. J.

Hon. F. C. Reed represents the threa
counties of Clatsop, Tillamook and Co
lumbia, which naturally accounts for his
endeavoring to get a bill through for re-
districting the state, feeling that his dis
trict requires more representation. If
the bill failed, it was apparently owing
to the fact of the census having been
taken so long ago as to preclude the pos
sibility of obtaining accurate numbers as
to population. He is much in earnest in
everything pertaining to his section. of

HOW RUBBEK BOOTS AXD SHOES ARE
Did'you eTer see any crude rubber, and
have you any idea how it is gathered
and worked? There are twenty or thirty
varieties of crude rubber, varying great
ly in quality, and of all these the best is
known as Para, a South American
product, obtained in Brazil, about 1,800
miles above the mouth of the Amazon.
It is called Para from the city of that
name from which it is shiped to foreign
parts. The gum i gathered by tapping
the rubber trees, as wo tap maplo trees
for sap for maple sugar. The sap is
gathered into a large pot into which the
native dips a flat wooden paddle, to
which sum adheres. He withdraws the
paddle and holds it in a smoke made by
burning palm nuts, whichrflries and cures
the film of rubber ;on tho paddle. He
then dips again, and smokes again, re
peating the process until he has on the
paddle a bunch of gum weighing several
pounds. Then he splits the ball or roll to
get the paddle out and it is ready for
These natives are not models of hones
ty, however, as these chunks of gam fre
quently contain palm nuts, rubber nuts,
uelces of iron, or are freely mixed with
sand to add weight, which often causes
the manufacturer great trouble, l ue
Enblic, or a large share of the public,
ave an idea that crude rubber gum
comes something like tamarac, and that
it is melted and cast into whatever form
is desired, but this is not true. A rubber
shoe factory is not a foundry; It comes
nearer being a printing office.
These chunks of rubber are sliced into
steaks, you might say, by sharp knives
revolving rapidly and kept constantly
wetted. When one of these knives
strikes an iron spike, there is apt to be
'music in the air." The operators are
on the lookout, however, and accidents
are so thoroughly guarded against that
they are very rare. These steaks are
then put into a chopping machine, whero
they are made into an article closely re
sembling boarding house hash, only that
thin hash j3 the straight goods, oxcept
that it needs cleaning. The small pieces
thus formed are thon put through a ma
chine which makes mince meat of them,
and at tho same time washes out all the
dirt and Band. This (not tho dirt and
sand) is now shoveled into a rolling ma
chine which compresses the mass into
rough sheets. This is tho first process.
These sheets are then taken to a steam
drying room, where they remain three
months to free thorn from all mois
ture. Bv tho drviuc process they loso from
15 to 30 per cent, of their weight. If tho
least moisture remains m the rubber
when made up into shoes, the heat of
vulcanization causes its expansion, and
consequently causes blisters in the stock.
The dry gum is then run between heavy
iron rolls, heated by steam, and called
grinders, by which it is softened to per
mit the admixture of the vulcanizing
Rubber in its natural 6tate is unfit for
use, and Goodyear's process of vulcani
zation by the aid of sulphur is necessary
to utilize it. This mixing is done by
running the ground rubber through still
another series of rollers, which pres3 tho
rubber and sulphur together in ono soft,
fine body, whichjis finally run through a
calendar, between great steel cylinders;
the mass is pressed out into long smooth
sheets of any desired width or thickness.
Thea comes tho printing process. Those
sheets are fed through cylinders on the
face of which is engraved the pattern for
sole, heel and upper desired to be pro
duced, and these impressions aro as
clearly printed on the rubber as this
type impression is on this paper.
Thon tho sheets go to the cutters, who
cut out the different parts and send them
to their respective departments. The
lasting is done similarly to that of other
ahoes, except that the parts are all put
to-gether by rubber cement, and, before
removal from tho last, they aro placed
in the vulcanizing ovens, where they are
subjected to a degree of heat that trans
forms the various parts into a homoge
neous moss in the shape of a boot or
shoe with a seam, nail, or peg. Then, if
a dull finish is desired, tho bast is re
moved, and the goods are ready for mar
ket. Otherwise they are varnished to
give the bright finish, and dried, when
they are ready.

THE TIP OF THE TOXGCE.
The Truest Teit for Polioa Transmitted from
When we want to secure ourselves by
means of taste about any unknown ob
jectsay a lump of some white stuff,
which may be crystal or glass or alum or
borax or quartz or rock salt we pat the
tip of the tongue against it gingerly. If
it begins to burn us we draw it away
more or less rapidly, with an accompani
ment in language strictly dependent up
on personal habits and manners.
The test we thus occasionally apply,
even in the civilized adult htare, to un
known bodies is ono that is being applied
every day and all dav long by children
and savages. Unsophisticated humanity
is constantly putting everything it sees
up to its mouth in a frank spirit of ex
perimental inquiry as to its gustatory
properties. In civilized life we find ev
erything ready labeled and assorted for
us; we comparatively seldom require to
roll the contents of u suspicious bottle
(in very small quantities; doubtfully
upon the tongue in order to discover
whether it is pale sherry or Chili vinegar,
Dublin stout or mushroom catsup. But
in the savage state, from which, geologi
cally and biologically speaking, we have
only just emerged, bottles and labels do
Primitive man, in his sweet simplicity,
has only two modes open before him for
deciding whether the the things he finds
are or are not strictly edible. The first
thing he does is to sniff at them, and
smell being, as Mr. Herbert Spencer has
well put it, au anticipatory taste, gener
ally gives him some idea of what the
thing is likely to prove. The second
thing he does is to pop it into his mouth,
and proceed practically to examine its
further characteristics. Strictly speak
ing, with the tip of tho tongue one can't
really taste at all. If you put a drop of
hdney or of oil of bitter almonds on that
S art of the mouth, you will find (no
oubt to your surprise) that it produces
no effect of any sort; you only taste it
when it begins slowly to diffusa itself,
and reaches the true tasting region in
the middle distance.
But if you pnt a little cayenne or mus
tard on the same part you will find that
it bites you immediately the experiment
should bo tried sparingly while if you
put it lower down in the mouth you
swallow it almost without noticing "the
pungency of the stimulant. Tho reason
is that the tip of the tongue is supplied
only with nerves, which are really norves
of the touch, not nerves of taste preper:
they belong to a totally different main
branch, and they go to a different center
in tho brain, together with the very sim
ilar threads which supply the nerves of
smell for mustard and pepper. This is
why the smell and taste of these pungent
substances are so much alike, as every
body must havo noticed, a good sniff at
a mustard pot producing almost tho
same irritating effect as an incautious
mouthful. As a rule, we don't accurate
ly distinguish, it is true, between these
different regions of taste in tho mouth
in ordinary life; but that is because we
usually roll our food about instinctively,
without paying much attention to the
particular p'art affected by it. Ex.
