A LAEGE FORTUNE IN OEAKGE PEEL
tSrXCLU. COKEESPOXDEXCT OF THE OISrATCH.1
Paeis, November 2. Last year M. Rouff,
a dealer in diamonds, lost a fine large pearl,
weiching 125 grains and valued at 8.000.
He immediately put posters up on all the
walls of Paris, offering a handsome reward
clever person in the orange and.lemon.peel
which was daily thrown away by the garcons
of the cafes.
She took the hint and pondered over it.
The. next thing she did was to sell her stock
in trade and become a sort of amateur chif
fonniere, with this difference, that the object
of her quest was orange and lemon peel
only. "She struck up business relations
with the limonadiers and the various waiters
who well, you know how men are were
glad to help a young and, as she was then,
good-looking woman. They all, in fact,
watched her venture in this" new line with
She had a tiresome task at first, but soon
as she got to be known, matters went on
more smoothly. The peel idea proved a
success. In fact, she prospered so rapidly
that she was ere long able to employ other
hands to do the dirty woik of collecting the
material from the streets, as also from the
theaters, for the sweeping of which she
She presided herself over some 30 young
women in her orange and lemon peel ware
house, all of whom were busily occupied in
cleaning, pressing and packing the peel as
lor its recovery. Several weeks elapsed,
when a poor woman called on the Commis- it arrived, an operation which she christened

name was Gautier. She was a chifibnnicre,
or female ragpicker, by trade and had found
the pearl in a heap ot rubbish in the Eue
LslHtte. She lived in a small wooden
shanty in the Eue du Buisseau, a poorly ten
anted street belonging to a quarter known
as Les Grandes Carrieres, so named from
the "large quarries" on the northern slopes
of Montmartre, where the city formerly got
much of its fine limestone for building.
The new law that forbids housekeepers
from placing their rubbish in the streets
over night has been a sad blow to the corpo
ration to which this poor honest woman be
longs. Some compensation has, it is trne,
been offered them by the tolerance of the
police, who close their eyes to the infringe
ment of the regulations in the narrow
streets which are lined with shops and
warehouses. They have each their own con
cierge, who permits them to forage at day
break among the rubbish brought down by
tlie servants from upstairs.
They have a longer day's wort now.
Formerly they started out at 10 at night,
and at 4 or 3 in the morning, when the carts
made their rounds, they had disappeared
Jrom the streets. .Now they must remain
until the scavengers appear on the scene, or
at least until the last boxes of rubbish have
been emptied into the common bin placed
on the edge of the kerb by each concierge.
a kagpickeb's eabnings.
Thcv have the work of sorting to do when
they get back from their early morning task
of collecting the refute. Some sell it to a
boss, or trieur (sorter), as he is called, who
stays at home and does nothing else. He
Bits in his room like a gentleman, and there
qnietlv assembles, examines and separates

people. He then sells the material to buy
ers ot various sorts.
The business is anything but a lucrative
one. Parisians, however, throw away every
year more than 300,000 tons of stuff, which
the ragpickers collect and sell for upward of
25.000,000 francs, or nearly $5,000,000 The
daily returns amount in all to more than
70,000 francs ($14,000), but there are 40,000
men and women to snare the sum between
them, so that each gets an average of 1 franc
and 75 centimes, or less than 35 cents. Two
hundred pounds of waste paper cannot be
sold for more than a couple of francs,
woolen rags are only worth 5 cents
a pound, cotton 3 cents, and bones
at best fetch If. 85c, or 37 cents per hundred
weight. A man working steadily all night,
for they still ply their trade on a small
Ecale, despite the edicts of the Prefect may
earn, if be has a tairamountof good fortune,
from 40 to 60 cents, but not more. A silver
spoon does occasionally turn up in the rub
bish; but the pearl oi purest orient hue
well, so to speak, never. Besides, every
member of the corporation of ragpickers is
bound under severe penalties to deposit any
valuables he may find at the nearest police
office. Each has a card or ticket, with a
number inscribed, and a number correspond
ing with that on the card is fastened to the
hotte or basket. Eagpickers, moreover,
have always been noted for their industry
JUST GOOD AST) BAD.
There are no classes or categories among
the rag pickers, as some pretend. The are
only the good and the bad. The real chif
fonier is readily recognized by the adroit
ness with which, while only slightly stoop
ing, he transfixes a cork, or any bit of rag
or paper, and drops it into the basket at his
shoulders. It requires years of patient prac
tice to ao me leai neatly ie contemns imi
tators, people who would fain pass them
selves off for the genuine article. There
are plenty of such shams who wear the blue
blouse and go about with the basket, but
they are no members of the corporation.
They are mere hide venders.
Catskins still find purchasers, and the
number of rabbits eaten at cheap restaurants
and water-side resorts enables these prowl
ing frauds to dispose of the bodies of their
victims. Their calling, however, is a mean
one, for cats don't like being shut out o'
nights, and those who haunt the Central
markets are protected by the police and the
watchman. Caterwaulers alone succumb to
their wiles. The real chiffonnier, or rag
picker, is proud of his calling. He re
mains true to his hook. In his family all
the men have either carried the basket or
the soldier's knapsack. None have dis
graced themselves so far as to become a
mere day laborer.
The "new law" I have alluded to was a
decree enacted by M. Poubelle. Prefect of
the Seine, requiring every concierge to pro
vide a box for the rubbish of the tenants,
and to have it ready for the dust carts on
their morning rounds. It came into force
January 15, 1884. The evident effect, if not
the object of this regulation, was to sup
press the chiffonnier's occupation, and to
give the dust contractor a monopoly of the
refuse. On sanitary grounds the Prefect
may have been right, but policy required
moderation even in a question where the
health of so large a city as Paris is con
cerned. The fact of suddenly reducing so
large a crowd of honest and useful servants
to downright beggary was a mistake.
APPEALED TO PUBLIC OPINION.
Public opinion, which, in Trance, as in
other countries ot a similar high degree of
civilization, is the supreme ruler, spoke np
In favor of the rag-pickers, and againstthat
minor sovereign known as the Prefect of the
Seine. Many deputies also humanely joined
in the protest, so that the now immortal M.
Poubelle was constrained to offer partial ex
cuses for his action in the matter, and
promised that the utmost tolerance should
be exercised by the authorities in behalf of
this particular and as he admitted "most
honorable" industry. The ragpickers
were in future to be allowed to turn
out the new dust-boxes, so as to be
able to rake over the contents. But for the
dignity of the thing, the Prefect might as
wellhave revoked his decree altogether; but
like other rulers who have granted constitu
tions or dismissed obnoxious ministers, he
doubtless found it necessary to save appear
ances. The chiffonniers conducted theirniritn.
tionand,inameasure,gained their point, with
an orderliness and sood temper th it shows
low utterly unfit they are to replace the
Chamber of Deputies. It would be a dull
world indeed if a select assortment of them
were to be transferred to the Palais Bour
bon, though possibly more business would
I will conclude this article about raf-
pickers by relating the story of a poor
woman, Mme. Vanard, who arrived at
competency by collecting orange-peel, and
thereby not only helped herself, but gave
occupation to others. She became a rich
person, a great patroness of art, and a regu
lar habitue of the Opera. Her husband
was in business as a distiller of spirits and
essences, uch as are used by perfumers and
dealers in liqueurs. She gave him as much
assistance as she could. He, however, died,
whereupon she tried for some time to carry
on the distillery alone, but without sne
ces. Talking over matters one day with the
keeper of a restaurant where she (used to
take her dinner, she was much struck' with.

has now retired from business, and enjoys
the fruits of her former hard-earned labor.
