What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Tea Gathering in Ceylon Tea is getting to be a great product of Ceylon and the export is already 10,000, - 009 pounds. It is claimed in behal’ of this tea that it is cleaner than Chinese or apanese tea, which is manipulated and adulterated until its quality is consider- ably deteriorated. “In Ceylon coolies pick the tea leaves, which are spread on trays to wither under cover for about a day. The withered leaf is then placed in & rolling machine, driven by power, and tviNed for an hour, and during the procers the leaves become a moist and twisted mass, out of which the expressed juice freely ros, “the leaves are then placed in trays to ferment or oxydize, during which process the y change from a green toa copper color. The subsequent ilavor and strength of the tea depend, to a Great extent, on the fermentation, which is a chemical process, the success of which is due to the weather, Firing is the next process. The tea is thinly spread on trays and placed either on charcoal stoves or in large iron drying machines, and at the end of half an hour it is thoronghly crisp and dried and has become tea, The tea is then sized by being pesced thro igh sieves of different mesh, giving the varicties of Broken Pekoe, Pekoe, Souchong, Congou and Dust. The first mentioned, which con- sists chiefly of the opening bud of the leaf, gives the strongest tea; so sirong that the other teas are mixed with it. The tea is again slightly fired to drive off any suspicion of moisture, and packed while warm in lead lined boxes. Ceylon tea may now be bought in the American market. It is extolled for its strength and flavor, and it is said that two pounds of it will go farther than three pounds of Chinese or Japanese toe. It is suid to have a fragrance that is pe- culiarly its own.—Good Housek« eping. Give Telons Their Laber. The idea is simply preposterous thet the people sout to the penitentiary should livein idleness. They should have the benefit of their labor, and if you give them the benefit of their liber they will tur out as good work as though they vere out of the tentiary. They wiil have the same reason to do their best. Consequently, poor articles, poorly con- structed things, would not come inio competition with good articles made by free people outside of the wal’s, Now many mechanics are complaining because work done in the penitentiaries is brought into competition with their work. But the only reason that convict work is cheaper is because the poor wretch who does it is robbed. The only reason that the work is poor is because the man who does it has no interest in its being good. If ha had the profit of his own labor he would do the best that was in him, and the consequence would be that the wares manufactured in the prisons would be as good as those manu- factured elsewhere. For instance, we will say here are three or four men work- ing together. They are all free men. One commits acrime and he is sent to the penitentiary. Is it possible that his companions would object to his being paid for honest work in the penitentiary? | —Col. Bob Ingersoll in New York World Interview. non of Cannrds. ula are all Leaping §& The salmon rivers of Cs | streams of swift currents, whirling rapids and high falls.

The salmon gather at the foot of the lower tumble, and, with marvelous leaps up the very face of the rushing waters, nake their way to the summit without apparent difficulty, gliding up the swift chutes like a flash and mounting each suecessive tumble until the grand sum- mit is reached. The Canadian will tell you that when there was no legal inter- ference with spearing, the Indians were in the habit of gathering at the foot of the falls in their birch cances and cast- ing their spears at the salmon as they leaped up the torrents, making their casts with such marvelous skill that the salmon aimed at was invariably stopped in his vaulting. career and fell back im- Indian's cruel barb,—Cor. Philadelphia News, At the Dinrer Tabte. The American Anthropologist has posi- tive views that a perfect dinner, thor- oughly good in variety, cookery, service, wsthetic appliances, culinary chemistry, roses in winter, ice in summer, and guests with educated palates, is the finest type and expression we have of the higbest civilization. ‘‘Savages cat when they can get food, and cat as long | os the food lasts. Civilization may be traced by the changing hours of refec- tion.” That is doubtful, for the rules quoted from the age of Francis I, of Franee, are better than those now in vogue: ‘Rise at 5, dine at 9, sup at 5 and couch at 9.” at meals is traced to the pre-Christian and heathen habit of placating the geds, offering them a share cf the food.

Of course the time re- | quired is considerably greater in the case of granite 2s compared with other stones, | If. the surface is not to bo polished, but | only fine axed, as it is called, that is done | by the use of a hemmer composed of a number of slips of steel of about a six- | Teenth OF an iNen urten, witch ad ti steely bound together, the edges being placed onthe same plane. With this tool the | workman smooths the surface of the stone by a series of taps or blows given | at aright angle to the surface operated 7 | upon, By this means the marks of the | blows as given obliquely on the surface of the stone are obliterated and a smooth | face produced. Polishing is performed by rubbing in the first place with an iron tool and with sand and water. Emery is next applied, then putty with flannel. All plain sur- | face and molding can be done by ma- chinery, but all carvings, or surfaces broken into, small portions of various elevations, are done by the hands of the oxatient Land polishers. The operation of sawing a block of granite into elabs for panels, tables or the rate of progress being about half an inch per day often hours. The machines | technically called lathes, wagons and pendulums or rubbers. The lathes are employed for the polishing of columns, the wagons for flat surface, and the pendulums for molding and such flat work as is not suitable for the wagon. In the lathes the colunin is placed and supported at each end by points, upon which it revolves. On the upper surface of the column there are laid pieces of iron, segments of the circumference of thecolumn. The weight of these pieces of iron lying upon the column, and the constant supply by the lathe attendant of sand and water, emery or putty, accord- ing to the state of finish to which the column has been brought, constitute the whole operation. While sand is used during the rougher state of the process, these irons are bare, but when using ewery and putty thesur- face of the iron next to the stone is cov- ered with thick flannel. The wagon is a carriage ranning upon rails, in which the pieces of stone to be polished ave fixed, having uppermost the surface to be operated upon. Above this fixed rings of iron. These rings rest upon the stone, and when the shaft re- velves they rub the surface of the stone. At the same time the wagon travels back- ward and forward upon the rails, so as The pendulum isa frame hung upon hinges o~— the room of the work shop. To this frame are attached iron rods, moving in a horizontal direction. In the line upon which these rods move, and under them, the stone is firmly placed Pieces of iron are then loosely attached to the rods and allowed to rest upon the surface of the stone. When the whole is set in motion, these irons ere dragged backward and forward over the surface of the stone, and so it is polished.
