WHISKY ANDTBMPEKANCEIN KENTUCKY
There are many distilleries in this part
of the country, and a great deal o! whisky
is made. I am not defending whisky, at
least any that is less than thirty years old
and has attained a medicinal quality. But
I want to express my opinion tht tills Is as
temperate as any region in the United
States. There is a wide-spread strict tem
perance sentiment, and even prohibition
prevails to a considerable degree. Whisky
is made and stored, and mostly shipped
away ; rightly or wrongly, it is regarded
as a legitimate businesslike w heat raising,
and is conducted by honorable men. I be
lieve this to be the truth.and that drunken
ness does not prevail in the neighborhood
of the distilleries, nor did I 6ee anywhere
in the country evidence of a habit of dram
drinking.of the traditional matter-of .course
offering of whisky as a hospitality. It is
true that mint grows in Kentucky.and that
there are persons who would win the re
spect of a tide water Virginian in the con
coction of a julep. And no doubt in the
mind of the born Kentuckian there is a
rooted belief that if a person needed a
stimulant, the be.t lie can take is old hand
made whisky. Where the manufacture of
whisky is the source of so much revenue,
and is carried on with decorum, of course
the public sentiment about it differs from
that of a community that makes its money
in raising potatoes for starch. Wljere the
hoise is so beautiful, fleet and protitable,of
course there is intense interest in him, and
the general public take a lively pleasure
in the races ; but if the reader has been ac
customed to associate this part of Kentucky
with horse racing and drinking as promin
ent characteristics.he must revise his opin
ion. Charles Duuley Warner, in liarfer's
Magazine for January.
It is said that Gen. Harrison is kindly
disposed towards Gen. Longstreet. If Gen.
Longstreet could have had his way at
Gettysburg the probabilities are that the
most important political matter before this
section of the country at present would be
the selection of a Minister to the Southern
Confederacy Ex-confederates who have
turned to be republicans have always fared
well at the hands of the republicans, and it
is proper to say that Longstreet would do
no discredit to any position which Mr. Har
rison may call him to fill. But the point
in the whole matter is, why should repub
licans take such a different view between
theii party putting Confederates in office
and the demDcrats putting them in office.
The Philadelphia Record h the follow
ing detail of labor prices connected with
the shoe manufacture. It is that in Lynn,
Mass., the labor cost of making a lady's
button boot is 25 cents, against 61 cents in
Frankfort, Germany, 57 cents in Berliner
cents in Vienna.and 63 cents in England.
Yet in Lynii women earn in making the
boets $7 per week and men $12, whilst In
Frankfort wages range from $2.16 to $3.60
for woien,and .$4.3J to $7.20 for men ; in
Berlin $4.So to $7.20 for men ; in Vienna
$4.40 to $4.So for women, and $4.30 to
?o.6o for men, and in England, from $3.60
to $4 32 for women, and $6.72 to $S 40 for
men. It is in the shoe manufacture as in
other business the world over. The best
paid labor is the cheapest.
Tl2 New York and Pennsylvania oil
fields, where so many fortunes have been
made and lost wilhin the last thirty years,
are rapidly becoming exhausted. Their
former yield of over 103,000 barrels per
day has fallen off to less than 43,000 bar
rels.ond the great Bradlield section of oil
yield in Pennsylvania, from which 140,000,
000 barrels have been taken, is now almost
completely run out. Explosions are being
made and wells have been sunk, some 500
or more, in Ohio, West Virginia and West
ern Pennsylvania with hope of return,
which has not to any great extent been
realized as vet.
If glass dishes and tumblers and other
articles of that ware are put into a kettle
and covered entirely with cold water, and
the water is allowed to boil quickly for a
short timc.and if the kettle is then removed
from the stove and placed in a cool spot
until the water has become cold.the articles
will be so toughened in the process that
they will not break easily. Keep the ket
tle covered tightly until the water has had
time to cool.
The result of Secretary Whitney's enterpris
ing administration appears in the rapidity with
which our country is recovering Unrightful place
among the naval powers of the world. During
ihe year 1S90 the United Slates will rank third
in number and fourth in tonnage of armored
cruisers of nineteen knots speed, and over 1.500
tons displacement. Great Britain will he first
with 16 vessels, and 71,450 tons displacement,
followed by Spain, 9 ships, 56,400 tons, by
Krance with 14 cruisers, 48,80010ns, and then
the United States with 12 ships and 41,033
displacement, Italy comes next on the list
with 7 vessels and 16,600 tons.
