"I used to think I wns n farmer," re
innrlccd Uncle William as lie elnrtcd to

my relatives nnd my wife's relatives and
their relatives and our many friends took
to comln' hero to Bpend their numruer
vacntlons I begin to think I ain't a farmer
any more. I iltinuo. Keopln' hotel and

"Early last month my wifo'a sister and
her husband nnd his brother and Ids
brother's wlfo and the children of both
families como down from tho city with
about two cords of trunks and an nppo
tito for garden sass that mo and mother
and tho hired man ain't been able to
more'u hnlf satisfy. Then my sister and
her husband, who is suirerln' from gen
eral debility or suthln', and their chil
dren and u nurso dropped In on us and
commenced tcllln' what n perfectly de
lightful farm wg was runnln'. Then
Lucy's feller and a couplo of dudes that
used to tend collego with Thomas piled
in on us. Then a cousin of my wife's
brother-in-law and an old feller that said
ho was a friend of my father's blew in,
and n few days ago a chap came along
that said he had a patent dingus for
ketchln' potato hugs by machinery that
ho'd lllto to trade oil for board through
the summer. I said I guessed I'd ketch
'em by hand this Season and that my ho
tel and rcBtrunt was just about chock up
at the present time.
"In fact, I don't know how we could
crowd in any more jest now. When mo
and mother went to the city, 0110 time,
they put us up four flights of Btalrs, and
I felt klndy sorry wo couldn't bo just as
perlito when they corao to seo us, but
our house ain't but two stories high and
wo didn't have tlmo to ralso tho roof, bo
we dono tho best wo could. Some on
'em wo chucked in tho sparo room, sonio
on 'em in tho side room, somo on 'em In
tho hall, and somo on 'em in tho garret.

and Ilenry tako their lodgln' in the

with Lem's folks. I never know what it
was before to run a summer resort, it
beats conference-and camp mectin's all
"They all said they was just dyfn' to
seo us, and I reckoned they was tho way
they took hold of the provisions. Me and
tho hired man and the boys spend nn
hour overy morning digging potatoes,
shelling green peas and plckln' chickens
for tho crowd, whllo mother pieces out
tho table every day or two to mako room
"The visitors is nil tho time complaln
in' about their appetites, but I notice
that our potatoes, and our green ieas,
and our chickens, and our garden saxs is
in purty bteady demand all tho time,
and that our milk ain't sent to the' fac
tory any moro. The college dudes and
Lucy's feller and the children constitoot

"Thero is somo amusln' things Lakes
placo on tho farm when tho visitors is

Lucy's feller and tho college dudes was
playin' what they call lawn tennis out in
tho cow pasturone day when Bill Green
field's big red critter, ifoso, strolled nlong
that way and commenced gazin' at 'em
earnestly through the cracks In a ntono
fence. Me and tho hired man was watch
in' of him from tho potato field and we
could see ho felt hurt about suthln.
"The boys was waltzln' around the pas
tur' with their whito coats and panties
on and when at tho height of their en-
ioyment 'Mose' backed up and started,
never saw lawn tennis when it looked
more thrillln'. Mo and tho hired man
jest stood thero and watchod three
streaks of white and a Btrcak of bright
red railroad it across the farm, tho red
gradu:dly approachin' tho whito and

feller had tho longest legs and com
menced to look fer butternuts in tho top

couldn't trot 60 fast, and was assisted by
'Moso' to a reservo Beat In tho black

Another insect pest that has developed
to nn unusual extent this summer is tho
ilea. Fleas aro as plentiful hero now as
they aro iu California, where they led
John Phamlx years ago to prescribo as
the only protection or euro a coating of
coal tar, applied warm to the whole body
and patched from tlmo to time when it

I hear, have a theory that tho largo
Italian immigration Is responsible for
tho present prevalence of tho flea. In
certain tactions of this city the ailliction
is laid to the Chinamen. I am inclined
to think, however, that tho weather has
something to do with It. This summer
has been a combination of raii and
roast, mostly ruin. Tho rain breeds tho
mosquitoes. Tho heat breeds tlio lleos.
Consequently, as wo havo had more
rainy than hot weather, we havo moro

LEATHER TANNED BY ELECTRICITY.
AmnrlFHti Tminorn Hear Wtint IIm Ileen
Ione In ICnrnpe bj TliU Method.
The process of converting hides into
leather, as now followed, consumes a
ipaco of tlmo varying from bIx to twelvo
months. It also demands close, attention
and good management, as well as expe
rience. Great caro has to bo exercised
in tho selection of material, clso u lot of
choice hides aro found at tho expiration
of tho tanning season to havo deteriorated
Into second or oven third quality leather.
Tanners, and leather dealers generally,
aro accredited with being very careful
and conservative In all their business
With these facts In viow It Is not sur
prising that when it was reported from I
Franco that leather' was being tanned
by electricity, American tanners regard
ed tho Btatemont as a nowspapcr sensa
tion. Twenty-four hours was considered
pretty qulok work for even electricity.
It was not until tho doubting Thomases
had seen and felt that they believed.
But now Blnco tanning by this process
seems an assured fact It is no longer re
garded as a sort of transatlantic otfset to
our electric sugar refining. Every Item
that can be gleaned is thoroughly dis
cussed and every source of information
eagerly sought. That the earlier efforts
in this direction wero failures is true,
but this was largely owing to a lack of
electrical knowledgo on the part of tho
Inventors. Thoy wero unable to econom
ically produco an effective current. And
again,' many experiments were neces
sary to learn tho strength of tho most
effective current But this in tiino was
learned, as was also its most economic
means of production. Only a uniform
current will givo good results.
Tho process, as described by those
who havo seen it, is a very slmplo one.
Tho hides aro placed in large cylinders,
which revolve upon horizontal axles.
Tho drum Is filled with n decoction of
tannin and closed. Provision Is made
for tho passing of a current of electricity
through tho drum. The drum Is kept
slowly revolving until the process of
tanning Is completed. The length of
time required varies with the nature of
tho hide. For tho lighter skins, such as
sheep and goat, which used to require
from threo to six months, by tho olectrlo
process nro tanned in twenty-four hours.
Tho heavier hides, such as calf, ox, cow
or horse, require from seventy-two to
ninety-six hours. By the old fashioned
bark process twelvo months or even
moro would havo been taken.
Tho cost of production is greatly re
duced by this method, for not only is tho
saving in tlmo, but in labor. The actual
cost of working Is reduced over 50 per
cent. By tho bark process tho cost of
tanning is from seven to eight cents per
pound of dry leather, as against that of
three to four cents by tho electrio meth
ods. And again, where a force of fifty
men were required to produco a given
quantity of leather, only ten aro needed
to produco tho samo by tho now meth
ods. Heretofore large capital has been
reqflirod to run a tannery having a regu
lar weekly output. As hides often re
quire to lie In tho tan vats nearly a year,
it will bo seen that a great number must
be in process of tannage in order that a
certain amount of leather be turned out
each week. In addition to extensive
plant, heavy investments aro represented
by tho hides in tannage. But the elec
trio process completely revolutionizes
this. Hides purchased on Monday have
been converted into leather and put on
tho market by Saturday.
Just what effect tho electrio current
lias upon tho tannin is as yet a question'
of dispute. Some claim that Its affect is
upon tho tannin, giving it moro active
properties. Others say that It effects
tho hide only. Professor S. P. Thomp
son, who has examined the process,
tldnks that the effect is to open tho pores
of tho hldo and so permit a moro rapid
access of tho tannin solution. Another
claims that tho current renders the gela
tine more soluble, so that It is able to
combine moro rapidly with tho tannin.
There is reason to believe that thero is
truth in both these statements, from tho
fact that tho leather is much moro pll
ablo and of greater strength than that
of tho long process.
A company has recently been formed
in England .which is preparing to tan
quite extensively by electrio process.
They will have an oxhlblt ot their leath
ers at tho Paris exposition, as will also
tho French Electric Tanning company.
Our visiting tanners, leather dealers and
shoo manufacturers will no doubt view
ft with interest. One of our- largest
leather dealers has decided upon a Paris
trip, especially to learn mora of this,
what ho termed a few months ago a new
fangled idea. New York Mall and Ex

Macon has tho most remarkable bird
in tho known world, being nothing less
than a musical gander. This wonderful
bird Is owned by some negroes living In
tho vicinity of the gas works, at the foot
of Mulberry street. For Beveral weeks
the employes of tho gas works, as well
as tho electrio light works in the samo
neighborhood, havo been seen to Btop
every ovenlng on quitting work and sur
round a lot of little negroes who dally
congregate on the square near the rail
road embankment. Yesterday a Tele
graph man determined to see tho cause
of tho gathering, and on proceeding to
the locality found tho little negroes cu
gaged in "patting" with all their might
and an old gray goose in the center of
tho circle dancing, first on one foot and
then on tbo other. The gander Becnm)
to enjoy tho dance, and, though it
might read like a "fake," was keeping

A singular caso was tried in Justice
Patrick's court, two Italians, Martin
Petreok and Santos Cordova, being prin
cipals. Cordova was tho fiolf assumed
guardian of a pretty, dark eyed Italian
girl. Ho clothed and educated her, and
Intended Borne day to make her hfs wlfo.
About April 1 Petrock appeared upon
tho socno and also foil In lovo with tho
maiden, and proposed marriage, but tho
young lady told him that Santos had
claim on her affections. Petreck asked
Santos what ho would tako for lovo and
affections. He set tho price at $150, and
a bargain was made. Petreck paid Cor
dova $50 In cash and gave him a note
for $100, payable in two years, for which
consideration Cordova gave up all claim
to U10 maiden.
Petreck was not as happy after tho
transfer as ho expected to bo. Tho
maiden did not lavish upon him tho
same affection that bIio had shown San
tos Cordova. Ho got tired of tho bar
gain and wanted to trado back. Ho
finally secured tho noto for $100, but
Cordova was olwtlnato as to tho $50
which had been paid in cash. A suit
was tho result. Tho court decided that
an Illegal contract had K-en mado, tho
terms of which could not bo enforced,
Cordova won tho suit, and the plaintiff
had to pay the costs. The maiden thinks
Petreck had a mercenary motive in tho
affection, nnd still clings to Cordova, her

I'ouinl Salmon Trout ScleutlQcally.
Few women includo in their summer
outingoutfit fishing rods nnd nn extensive
selection of tackle. Prominent among
tlio few who do is Mrs. Brownell, ot
l).ith. Her rods and tackle aro chosen
with special caro as to quality,, and aro
not carried as an ornamental appurte
nance, but for real practical use.
Mrs. Brownell is an enthusiastic and
scientific angler. She hus the record
this season of killing tho only salmon
trout over taken in Keuka lako on a six
ounce rod. Salmon trout ordinarily l(o
hi the deepest water, and tho regulation
tackle is a heavy hand lino and troll, or
a stiff rod rigged with heavy lino nnd a
gang of ten hooks, on which is impaled
n small fish known as' tho saw Irelly.
This bait is a fish with glittering scales,
and is attached to tho hook dead,
Tho rig Is known as tho Soth Green
gang, Beth Green having introduced it
among tho Keuka lako fishermen. It is
trolled, llko tho spoon, In deep water
with a heavy load attached to tho line,
which Is let out from two to threo hun
Mrs. Brownell was fishing for black
bass near Gibson's, using livo bait. She
had lauded a number of bass, when she
had a strlko that surprised her, Sho had
hooked tho fish, and Instantly know that
It was not n bass she had fastened, for It
dashed furiously for tho deep water to
ward tho middle of the lako. Although
It was an almost unheard of thing for
ealmon trout to be feeding (n tho water
whero 6he was fishing, sho was con
vinced that this was a salmon trout that
sho had hooked, and sho quickly gov.
erned herself accordingly, JJer. husband
was with her In tho boat, and started
from his Beat to assist her, but sho quiet
ly told him that eho wanted to get that
fish, and consequently tho best thing ho
could do was not to get in her wny.

MITCHELL'S SAD CASE.

Last week a young man named Mlt-
choll applied to tho courts for n divorce.
If his talo is true, something should bo
dono for him on nccount of tho wrongs
ho has suffered and tho patlcnco with
which ho has ondurcd them. Mr. Mit
chell tells tho court that just aliout a
year ago ho was wandering beneath tho
pleasant shades of Evanston, neither
thinking nor doing ill, when two Btrango
men accosted him and told him they
wero detectives nnd had a warrant for
his arrest. Ho followed thorn submis
sively to n placo whero they met a tldrd
man, who told Mr. Mitchell ho must go
nt onco to Chicago and thero bo married
to a yoUng woman whoso name, ho says,
he had nover boforo heard. Ho was bo
parolyzed by this Information that ho
mado no effort to get his freedom, Ho
did not cry out and implore tho nld of
tho bystanders. Thero would havo been
humanity enough in Evanston to rcscuo
him from his impending doom if he had
cried out that he had leeu kidnaped
and was on his way to tho altar of sacri
fice. Ho was carried to a Chicago hotel and
thero locked up. Instead of ringing tho
bell, getting n boy and sending him for
the police, this remarkable young man
waited in gloomy patience for the in
evitable. Ho did not stick his head out
of tho window and cry for help, nor
scMbulo a noto telling of his forlorn con
dition and throw it into tho street hoping
mat somo ono would pick u up nnd has
ten to his relief. Ho did nonoof tho

It is an unpleasant position for a man
to bo in to know that ho has a wifo nnd

Mr. Charles Sainton is hard at work at
Ills Bilver point sketches, which aro to bo
exhibited at Dowdcswcll's next October.
Forty pictures will bo required altogether,
indthe artist is about half wny through
already. A silver point is simply a sketch
mado on prepared paper, with a bit of
6llvcr mounted In a holder in lieu of a bit
of lead. Tho effect is extremely delicate,
and many of Mr. Sainton's portrnits look
llko faces seen in n dream. Tlio study of
this art Is said to bo deeply absorbing,
and it possibly owes somo of its fascina
tion from tho cxtremo care requisite in
its execution. Erasure is impossible, and
a falso step can never bo retrieved. Mr.
Sainton's sketches aro varied iu charac
ter, and the eolect party of friends who
wero recently invited to viow his work
nt ills studio wero much delighted at tho
