Tip-Giving Playing Out Says a restaurant waiter: The fashion of giving tips is dying out among eaters at the restaurants, and there isn't as much money in waiting as usual. Occasionally a waiter can make a dollar or so extra, but it isn't often. The proprietors sat down on tips some time ago, on the ground that waiters were extravagant iu tiling up meals for customers who gave tips. They said that a waiter would give a man three dollars’ worth of stuff for one dollar in order to get the tip. When tips are forbidden the waiter’s services are not so good. At present many good waiters do not work in the restaurants and hotels, but just on the outside, at balls, banquets and wed dings. At a fashionable affair, when every body is iu full dress, we can got five dollars a night and found in a jacket. At a common ball we get threo dollars a night and found, and the same prices are paid at banquets and weddings. There are seasons when a good waiter can make quite a large sum in this line, and then there are tips, too, and the work is good.— Chicago Tribune. —A year or two ago tnere were started two or three papers in English in India to oppose Christianity and they have ceased already. —A well-known clergyman of this city has noticed that charity always gets cold in the churches when contro versy gets hot. — Christian Union. —O, young man, leave not open the garden gates of your heart for the Swine to come in and trample down the flower-beds of the graces of your God!— Indianapolis Journal. —An American philanthropist of wealth is said to have subscribed $300,- 000 recently for the founding of a uni versity in China.

UNEXPECTED FORTUNES- An Optician’and a Magician Awake and Find Themselves Rich. “Monday night I was poor and Tues day I was rich,” said Mr. Charles H. Scheffreen, a few days ago to a Courier reporter. That he had very recently been poor no further evidence was needed to convince the reporter than the almost poverty stricken home in which he had been found in Russell place; that • suddenly he had been made rich the reporter had written proof in his possession, as had also Mr. Scheffreen, who, with well founded delight showed his visitor a receipt, signed by the cashier of one of our largest banks for a negotiable order for thousands of dollars, which had been deposited for collection that very day. “Yes, I am indeed a fortunate man. But I had faith and knew it would come sooner or later. ‘How many children have I?’ There is this little girl,” said the elated speaker pointing to a pretty black-eyed little Jewess, perhaps ten or eleven years of age, "and five others, besides a daughter who is married. Yes, I have had a tough time of it, and had it not been for the hope of some day having just this luck I cannot tell what I should have done. I left Russia five years ago with my family, thinking I should have no trouble at all in making a good living. I found it much harder to get along than I thought I should Selling sjiectacles and eyeglasses, which is my business, is very hard work, there are so many doing the same thing, and many days I made no money at all. "There is one thing though, my fiiend, I have always made money enough for, and that was to buy a ticket each month since I have been here in the Louisiana State Lottery, and sir, you see what iias come of it Ha! ha! I told my wife,” continued the animated speaker with chuckle, "1 should get it some day, and I have, I have!” Mr. Scheffreen seemed very anxious that the public should know of his good fortune. “I wish I could tell every man in Boston to buy a ticket,” he said. "I have told every friend 1 have seen, and many of them have already taken my advice. Yes, put it in the Courier by all means, let every body know it.” A strange inciden' connected with Mr. Schiffren's draw ing a part of the second capital prize of $100,000, and one which would seem to indicate that nothing had power to prevent him from getting it, was the fact that, although he ordered his ticket several weeks before the drawing, by some accident or other it had not reached him as late i s fiv« o’clock on the Monday afternoon im mediately preceding the Tuesday on which the distribution of prises took place, and it was the new ticket tha be ordered at that late hour by tele graph which proved to have on it the pucky number. i On the same day that Mr. Scheffren ■drew his fortune Mr. C. Fredericks, of ■Norman street., who held another part k>f the same ticket, was also equally ■nriched. Mr. Fredericks, who is a Sniveling magician, was away from his K sidence performing with a dramatic Kompany when the reporter called, Knd therefore could not be inb rviewed.

AMONG THE SWEETS. Historical Fa-t* Gathered by Mr. Richard J. Monk-«, of Boston. How Sugar 1« Handled on the Famous Levee at New Orleans. Mr. M >uks said that the subject of art fieial li 'lit was very large aud worthy of a series of lectures, as it ought to be covered. He referred to the worship of the orbs by the ancients. The Lucas claimed to be children of the sun. Li^ht of some sort was associated with those who ex- pectod some return from their duty. The practice of fires in open spaces was common in ancient limes. As civilization advanced lamp laws were passed to prohibit bonfires. For centuries bonfires were common with the Celtic natives in Europe, especially at festival times. Beacon fires were often used as signals. Their use is mentioned in the Greek tragedy of “Agamemnon.” In Spain taxes were levied to sus'ain beacons at the time of the Armada. In the Book of Jere miah, in the B bio, there is an allusion to the fire signal. Th* re was a mast and tar barrel on Beacon Hill. It was never used and was blown down in 1789. 'The use of whale oil originated with the N »rweg ans. In 1680 the Dutch had 260 vessels, employing 14 000 men, in the business. In New E igland the whales were first caught from small boats. The Indians engaged with avidity in the hunt for whales. In 1858 there were 60) vessels of 200,000 tons burden engaged in the American whale fishery'. The argand lamp was first used in 1800. iThe decline in whale fishery was due to the discovery of oil in Pennsylvania. Candles were spoken of first in a rem >te p *riod. Their use really began in the early history of Christianity. As late ns the sixteenth century their use was limited. In spite of modern methods the candle is used for certain pnrpo es, and the soft light can not fail to please the eye. The honor and merit of the first application of coal gas seems to belong to William Mur dock, of Red worth, Cornwall. In 1802 he lighted an extensive manufacturing establishment France also claimed the honor of its first demonstration, but not satisfactorily. January 28. 1807, saw a number of London streets igh'cd by gas. The amount of $20,- 000 was raised, and the King petitioned tor tho incorporation of a company. Two companies supply London at 70 cents per 1.000 cubic feet, and the’r capital is $60 000 000. Coal gas was first used in B dtimore in 1816, and for some time its progress was slow and unsatisfactory. Now there are over 1,000 works in the United States, fur nishing employment to over 25.000 men, a portion being for the manu facture of water gas. In 1798 a Frenchman discovered the process by which water gas was made. In 1875 Prof. Lowe established the first works in tho United Slates. The busi ness has increased enormously here, but not always, because hard coal and naphtha are so expensive. Natural •fas has been know in Asia and China for a long time. II story tells us of a well in France in the time of Julius CiBsar. The first in the United States was in Charleston. The Taylor House iu Fredonia, N. Y., was illuminated in 1824 in honor of Lafayette. A few ears ago a gas well was discovered in Ocean Spray, near this city. The nature and efficiency of natural gas is but partly understood. Petroleum was known to mankind from the dawn of history. It was spoken of in Sweden in 1750. In West Tn Pennsylvania it was found on ibo ground, and used a 4 a medicine many years before wells were bored. 1 > 1858 a well 72 feet deep, yielded more than 1,000 barrels a day. Then a reckless spirit of speculation arose. It enriched a few, while it ruined thousands. The standard drill is five and one-half inches, the flow being as great from a small is from a large hole. In 1880 the products amounted to 25.000,000 barrels, and the stock on hand June I. 1880. was valued $11.000 000. Rus <ia has valuable deposits at Baku, ong known, but just put to commer cial use. The value of exports thence in 1883 was $15,000,000. In Russia hey are ahead of America, in being able to use the residunim of petro euro. So abundant is lhe oil in Baku hat work can be carried on by its flame in the night, ai d the oozing he oil from the ground prevents dust. In concluding, Mr. Monks said that he had heard a great deal said about he s:ze of the statue of Liberty on Sedloe’s Island as being the highest stut ue ever known in modern or ancient times. To test this he had made a scale of the lighthouse Pharos, ■ hich had stood in the harbor of Alexandria, aud was regarded as one of the seven wonders of the world, making his computations from the ac count in Josephus and judging by the «¡stance it could be seen at sea. Plac ing the model of Pharos against a model of the statue of Liberty, lhe former was seen to be much the higher of the two;— Boston l.'erald. A hogshead of sugar is a huge ar rangement of staves, hoops and heads weighing, when filled with sugar, from eleven hundred to iif oen hundred jxHinds. The cooper-shop anti the plantation together produce the hogs head of sugar. When the cane has been cut and prossed, and the juice boiled into sugar, the sweet stuff is packed into the hogshead, put on board a steamboat, and shipped to this city, consigned to the factor representing the planter. On arriving at the land ing the sugar is unloaded on the wharf, where it is allowed to remain for twen ty-four hours, and even longer when room is plentiful. Then, if not hauled away, it is rolled into the sugar-slieds at the expense of the owner. Open kettle sugar is sold to the dealer on the levee. The factor is the seller, whether he employs a broker or not. The majority of factors have the services of a broker to attend to the es on the landing. The first-hand factor or br ker only sells in lots, and the bids are either made openly, as the buyers gather around the hogs heads, or the sugar is sold on private offers if the price proffered is the high est. The party selling the sugar general ly does the sampling, either in per son or throng li a clerk or other em ploye. This is done by means of a long steel instrument known as the gimlet, which is run through tho bung hole down into the sugar, twisted about, and drawn out full of the sac charine matter. This operation Is per formed several times, until a sufficient quantity is obtained to clearly show the quality of ihe article. These sam ples are generally piled up for the tim ’ on the hogshead they are taken out of for the critical examination of the buyer. After they have answered the purpose they are put into little paper bags and kept by the broker or dealer as a type for reference, or sent to tho consignee. It is while the sampling process is going on that the buyers gather round, each in his turn making his of fer. The buyer generally attends the sales to per.-on ally inspect his pur chase, but sometimes semis for sam ples, and then, on receipt of his goods, compares them with the samples fur nished him. Although th * first-han I broker sells but round lots, in case of damage of any portion of a lot or it showing up as an inferior grade, he takes a re duced pr’co foril; still the buyer must take the entire lot. Second-hand brokers sell any way. by the whole or broke» lots. Clarified sugar is soil by sample in the sugar exchange. The supplies are collected an I taken to lhe ex change, where they are spread out on tho tables for the inspection of buyers. After the sugar is sold it is weighed and gu aged and is then ready for ship ment after the first cooperage. It is swung from the scales by means of large hooks that catch on the chimes of hogshead so that when the beam is pulled down the hogshead is lifted from the ground and the weight ascertained. Four men usually con stitute the weighing gang, together with lhe clerk taking the records of the weights. These hogsheads as a general tiring run from 1.100 to 1,500 pounds, but in weighing open-kettle sugar the figures give the 5 and 10 pounds. Thus, if a hogshead weighs 1,214 pounds it goes down as 1,210 pounds. Then 12 per cent, is knot ked off from the gro s weight In clarified sugar the actual weight goes. When the hogsheads have been coop ered the boss drayman or his clerk, with his teams, appears on the scene. The sugar is marked, rolled on the floats, and hauled to its destination in the city or to lhe print of shipment, in case it is being forwarded to some other port, domestic or foreign. The low float is driven up close to the lots to be handled, a skid is hooked into the iron brackets at the side of the floa’, and the teamsters strain them selves in rolling up the great hogs heads on o the bottom of the wagon. After this handling the sugar soon comes into u«e on the table or in the pantry. Molasses is disposed of in the same way as sugar. The brokers always come down to the levee to see the sam ples of molasses, as they are not taken to the exchange. Immediately on their arrival the barrels of molasses are coopered by the first-band cooper, so as to keep them tight and prevent leaking.— N. O.
