A cargo of aljout thirty-nix thoiiaanil I
pounds of pearl from the Philippine I
Islands arrived in this city recently. I

¡atistically executed sea and landscape
paintings in oil upon mother-of-pearl
shells. It is doubtful whether one ol
the hundreds who purchase them, of
live out of the thousands who admin
th m in show windows on Broadway oi
elsewhere, have the remotest idea that
nature formed these shells for any othei
purpose than to be usod in this style ot
A large importer of shells and a
manufacturer of pearl goods, in con
versation with a reporter, expressed
astonishnfent at the profound ignor
ance of so many persons in regard to
the different localities front which pearl
shells come, and the hundred and on«
purposes for which they are used.
“How many kinds are there used in
your business?” asked the reporter.
“The shells which possess a commer
cial value are known to the trade as
the Man-ilia, Australian, Bombay, Ja-
paP, East India, Trocus, Chinese snail,
black and red ear, and Panama. Sev
eral of these species are pearl-bearing
shell and only obtained by professional
divers at the imminent risk of their
lives. Many of these bivalves are very
heavy, weighing sometimes eight or
ten pounds. The moment the native
gets one ashore he forces it open, and.
carefully removing the living inhabi
tant, carefully searches for any pearl
it may contain. Not only the shell, at
and about its hinge, but the meat oi
fish within is thoroiigly examined, lest
the pearl might be secreted, as is fre
quently the case, in the body. Tlii*
examination over, the shells are laid
aside to dry, having first been thor
oughly cleaned. The finest shell for
manufacturing purposes comes from
the Phillipine Islands and is called the
Manila. It ranges in price from 60 to
75 cents a pound, and is used for mak
ing dress and shirt buttons, pistol
stocks, cuff buttons, parasol and um
brella handles, pen handles, studs and
scores of other articles. A thin veneer
ing is also made of it, which is worth
$12 a pound, and is used for inlaying
the covers of albums and fancy cabinet
These veneerings are fairly
•dazzling with rainbow hues, and when
lightly polished are exceedingly beau
tiful. When we have got all these ar
ticles out of the shell, there is very lit
tle of the shell remaining.”
“Is there any difficulty or danger at
tending the gathering of these shells?”
“I should rather say there was.
There is one species of shell, shaped
like an ear, called the silver and red
ear, in the sides of which* are small
holes, and through these, by means ol
long suckers, the fish fastens himself to
a rock. When the tide has pretty near
ly run out the natives go down among
the rocks and, watching their oppor
tunity, catch hold of the upper shell
which the shellfish keeps open. Unless
hp succeeds in the first instance in pull
ing it from its resting-place, the anl-'
mal will close its shell in a second and
the man’s fingers will be held in a vice
like giip. In that case the unfortunate
pearl gatherer will have to stand up to
his krecs in water unless he cuts off his
imprisoned fingers, for the shell can
.not be pried open, nor can three men,
with their united strength, pull his
suckers from the rock. The shell is so
hard that it is next to impossible to
smash it. There the poor fellow is
held in agony until the tide rises, when,
unless he frees himself by chopping ofl
his finger-ends and leaving them for
the animal to dine on, he is sure to be
“The business of pearl manufacturing
is comparatively new in this country,
and the profits are so large that then
is a tendency to monopolize the indus
try. In consequence all sorts of device-
are resorted to in order to obtain the
advantage. Some time ago a large
house in this city bought a cargo of
pearl shells to arrive at seventy cents a
pound. While the vessel was in transit
the market fell about forty cents. It
was a lucky thing for the house that
the vessel foundered off the Cape of
Good Hope, for the concern would cer
tainly have foundered had the ship
come safely to port. Manufacturers
here prefer waiting for lots of pearl
shells to arrive at this port direct from
the fisheries, instead of ordering from
London, knowing that the shells are
assorted there and the choicest picked
out for the English aud French mar
kets. There are several large manu
factories of pearl work in Newark.
Philadelphia, Germantown and in this
city, and since the establishment of
this industry here the importation of
pearl buttons from England has greatly
fallen off.”—M Y. Commercial Adver

WAYS OF WOMEN.
How Some of Then Make a Livelihood
and Save Money.
The other day when the working
women, who are frying to organize,
met with some of the organized men
at Pythagoras hall and one of
the latter got up and remarked with
considerable severity that his sex
had suffered from their generous
admission of women into competition
with themselves, he was sat upon, A
woman replied in that still small
voice with which she sometimes makes
home unbearable to her spouse, that
if the men would support their wives
and daughters there would be no com
petition. Somehow the man couldn’t
teem to think of any thing to say. It
was like one of these occasions in the
Spoopendyke family when it was so
still Mrs. S. could hear the limburger
cheese scrambling round in the tin box
on the shelf. Women do make such
silly speeches sometimes. But since
the husbands and fathers and brothers
can’t or won’t support all the women,
some of them have been driven to queer
shifts to earn their living. Two women
1 know teach whist for a living, and
they live very well. You wouldn’t
think at first glance that there were
enough folk in New York toplay wbist,
or cared enough about it to take les
sons in the art, but wait till you see
these two rosy, handsome girls, whoare
busy as bees all day, and you will come
to the conclusion there is room enough
in New York for any thing, ami any
body, It wasn’t their idea originally.
A Boston girl did it first. Then she
got married, and being a hearty, gen
erous person, remembered on her wed
ding day that two cl her friends had
just been left penniless by the death
of their father. So when the cere
mony was done and she had given
the groom and the minister both a
kiss, she changed her gown, put on her
bonnet and ran around to the house of
her afflicted friends and gave them her
idea as a sort of legacy from her maid
enhood. Then she went home and was
in time for the train that carried her
/iway to her new home and happiness.
The two girls with the second-hand
idea worked hard to perfect themselves
in the science of whist, succeeded to
their friend’s clients and did well in
Boston. Then they grew ambitious
and came to New York. Here they
have pretty little rooms where people
come to them certain hours of every
day to play the game and be taught all
its mysteries, and certain other hours
they go to the houses of those iVho do
not wish to come to them. One even
ing in every week they go and play
whist with an old lady and her com
panion. The old lady knows the game
better than they do and loves it better
than life, but she pays them to come
and be beaten by her or help her beat
the companion, and there is always a
pretty little tray brought in before they
leave, and over her tea the ancient
part}’ grows garrulous of her young
days and of all the great people, now
dead, whom she had known. These
two women make an excellent living
out of their “profession,” and are as
happy and prosperous looking as pos
sible. There is another even odder
case of a young woman who goes ev
erywhere, to the best houses, and is
always extremely well dressed. She
lias an exquisite figure—tall, supple
and slim. Any thing looks well on her.
Added to that her face is pretty and
she has that (indefinable quality called
“style” which makes whatever she
wears the infinite envy and desire of
the women who see her. She is a very
indefatigable tea goer, is at all the re
ceptions, and whenever the day is fine

Prof. Remington, of the Cnl icanthuj

amusing articles which have recently
appeared in the bully Horn, called on
the editor of that journal several even
