Chimney Sweep
ing! "What a
subject for the
ambitious pens
of budding Gib
bons' new study
ing in our public
schools ! How
eloquently migbt
they dwell upon
the glorious past
of the sooty craft,
and the sad stag
nation into which
it fell, subse
quent to the in
troduction of nat
ural gas. In what
glowing lan
guage might
thev describe the
AHUHKuijejgHaurne lead-ers of chim.
ney-sweeping in the olden time; and how
mournfully might the lives and characters
of the few remaining exponents of the art
be depicted upon the pages of this great his
toric triumph of the future.
"Without desiring to infringe upon the
rights of the historiographer of the chim
ney, but rather from an earnest desire to
render him some small assistance, the writer
the other day made an investigation into
the subject.
It was in the quiet little parlor of Mr.
Alexander Gillespie, the veteran Allegheny
chimney sweeper. Close by the roaring
coal fire sat the Mr. G. himself, and over
against him lounged the cadaverous form oi

lespie wan sent for from Indiana county,
and he sojourned for two weeks in that
neighborhood," cleaning chimneys by the
dozen. But this is a stroke ofluck which
seldom occurs.
AX ODDITY AND THE BOYS.
There is much more chimney-sweeping
done in Allegheny than in this sister city.
"Why this is so. Mr. Gillespieis not able to
say. In proportion to its sire, Allegheny
uses as much natural gas as Pittsburg, and
yet it is able to support two more chimney
sweepers than the transportive Babvlon.
"Do you ever clean the long factory
chimneys?" asked the writer.
"Hech, sirs!" cried the old sweeper;
"'twould be a brawcleanin' they'd need.
Why, mon, ye see these lang chimneys
sweep themsel's. The force o' the fire is
enoo to keep the dirt awa'."
"Is it true that sweepers send little boys
up the flues where their brashes can't reach?"
"Xot now, ye ken. The Government
winna let them do "t. But ower i' th'
auld country they send the boys up
still. In my young days we used to

Dr. Lorenzo Waite. Pittsfleld. Mass.. says:
"From its use for a period of about eight
weeks, to the exclusion of all other remedies,
I attribute the restoration to health of a pa

consequence of nervous prostration and dys
pepsia. This patient's stomach was In such an
irritable condition that he could not bear
either liquid or solid food. An accomplished
physician of many years experience, whom I
called In consultation, pronounced his case an
incurable one. At this stage I decided to use
Horsford's Acid- Phosphate, which resulted as
above mentioned."

"You are, I believe, a sweeper of chim
neys, Mr. Gillespie?" observed the news
paper person.
"Hoots, mon. I am that," replied Mr. G.
with a touch of the old Lallan tongue, "and
we Ihae been, for '40 years and mair."
THE SWEEPER AND THE SWEPT.
"Any relation, Mr. Gillespie, by mar
riage or birth, of James Gillespie Blaine?"
queried the writer.
The old man pondered awhile. Then he
asked, "Where did he sweep?"
"He didn't sweep," the writer replied;
"he cot swept himself, poor fellowl You are
not an American, I believe, Mr. Gillespie?"
"How did ye ken that without speering?"
asked the sweeper. "Well, ye're right
enough, onyway. I come frae Stranraer, in
"Wigtonihire, and the guidwifa yonder she
comes frae Ballinahinch, on the Irish coast.
"We've been 19 year in America, a'the-
gither."
"How is trade, Mr. Gillespie?"
The old man shook his head sadly.
"Trade's flown awa' frae Pittsburg the
noo," he said, "we never had work since
the gas came."
"You don't like the gas, then?"
"Weelj the Beuk says we maun love our
foes," said the veteran, "and sae, I suppose,
I love the gas, which is my worst foe. But
it ruined chimney-cleanin' in these twa
ities."
- "Do cot natural gas chimneys need
cleaning, then?"
"Aye, they want cleanin', but they're
seldom cleaned for a that."
elbows, an' knees, an feet aye, an wi
teeth, too, sometimes. My son-in-law, who
is a sweep, too (they're a sweeps, onr kin),
once climbed up the big chimney in Trinity
Church
WHEN HE "WAS A BAIBN.
"But the bairns are their ain masters the
noo; an' Government sees that naebody
makes them work till they've ruined their
health an' hurt their eyes ower useless
benks that don't tell 'em the differ betwixt
a clean sweep an' a dirty one."
"And is there any difference?" asked the
ignorant inquisitive person.
"Troth there is," Mr. Gillespie answered.
"Naebody but an experienced sweep can
avoid makin' a mess on the hearth. The
awkward mon always dirties the whole
room. Ye see, there's two ways o' doin' a'
thincs the right way and the wrang way.
"Weel, sir. I hae answered a' your ques
tions noo. Pittsburg chimney sweepin' is
well nigh a trade o' the past The most
four sweepers can do here is just to keep
body an soul thegither. 1 heerd tell o' a
travelin' sweep, wi' a donkey, somewhere
up on MoontWashingtou; but be must bae
starved or gone awa', as his came hasn't
been mentioned to me for mony months. I

we sweepers ever hope to be prosperous
again. A guid day, to ye; an' I hope ye'll
gie an auld Scotchman his due, when ye
write him up for the newspapers."
With these parting words the old sweeper
dismissed the inquisitive newspaper man;
and the latter stepped oat into the
street, much 'impressed with the Bad ac
count he had heird of the Decline and Fall
of the Ancient Science, Light Chimney
Sweeping. Been an.
Doe tho Public Appreciate t
Onr experience has' been that it does.
Else how our own success? Not because
tbe public has any love for us, personally.
It is because the people are fair and liberal
enough to appreciate our efforts to serve
them. They recognize that our long expe
rience and perfect iacilities enable as to
meet their wants at the least possible cost to
themselves. Our errors they cheerfully
overlook in their faith in our sincerity.

THE ENGINEER WAS ASLEEP,
And His Train Kan Into Ooo Abend, Caus
ing a Disastrous Wreck.
rKFECIAL TELEGRAM TO TBE DI6FATCH.1
Habkisbotjg, November 17. A very
disastrous freight wreck occurred on the
Northern Central road, at Middleton ITerry,
between 2 and 3 o'clock this morning.
Emile Lashey, a brakeman, was killed, and
Engineer Appello and his fireman were
badly injured. All the men live at Balti
more. Two . sections of the Empire line
which left Baltimore last evening about 7
o'clock, loaded with perishable goods, col
lided, and about 30 cars and an engine
were smashed. The wreck caught fire
and -five cars were burned. Lashey
was caught in the telescope and
fell under tbe ruins. The freight of the en
tire two trains, which was consigned to
dealers in New York State, will probably
be lost Tbe road is blocked and the wreck
age cannot be cleared before Tuesday morn
ing. Trains are getting through on tbe
Pennsylvania road via Columbia.
Tbe first section stopped on account of an
accident to its engine. Tbe flagman went
behind, but the engineer of the secondtrain
is said to have been asleep and did not see
his signal. His train was running at the
rate of 30 miles an hour when it struck the
train ahead. Several of the crew on tbe
first train jumped from the caboose in time
to escape injury. Tbe loss will be many
thousand dollars to the company.
Four Children Burned to Death,
Quebec, November 17. A report from
St. Eleuthere, Kamouraska county, states
that four children have been burned to death
there. No particulars are given.
jr S S S S f
The Tradelt Former Prosperity, in Caricature.
The old sweeper then proceeded to give
tbe writer an idea of the difference between
his trade's prosperity six years ago, and its
present decadence. Before gas was intro
duced, Pittsburg was almost
OVEESTOCKED WITH SWEEPERS.
In Pittsburg five master sweepers em
ployed from lour to six men each, and in
Allegheny four masters had a similar
number of laborers. Besides these there
were a score of sweepers with one or two
assistants; anda small army of individuals
who worked, with tbe help of an occasional
urchin, to do the light work. Mr. Gillespie's
brother was among tbe more prosperous
sweepers. He employed five men; but, since
the advent of gas, be has gone to St. Louis.
Mr. Gillespie's two sons, also sweepers, fled
lrom the gas-invaded city at the same time,
and went west. In Kansas City and Denver
they find plenty of chimney-sweeping.
Sweeping prospects were never so rosy as
in the lew years prior to the coming of the
fiend. Comfortable fortunes could be made
in the business by the mere journeymen,
while cow the masters themselves find it
hard to eke out a living.
But the most surprising thing of all, in
connection with tbe decline, is the sudden
decrease in the number of Pittsburg sweep
ers. As has been said, they could be
counted bv the score a few years ago. Now
there is one solitary sweeper in Pittsburg,
and three others in Allegheny. None of
these can afford to employ journeymen;
indeed, there is scarcely work enough
to keep their own hands going. In
tbe "slack seasons" (i. e. the summer and
winter) Mr. Gillespie is forced to work at
grate-setting, and some other mysterious
Snlcide.

timely use, and has kept from suicide or the in

CATARRH
Is a complaint which affects nearly everybody,
more or less. It originates In a cold, or succes
sion of colds, combined with impure blood.
Disagreeable flow from the nose, tickling In the
throat, offensive breath, pain over and between
the eyes, ringing and bursting noises in the
ears, are the more common symptoms. Catarrh
is cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla. which strikes
directly at its cause by removing all impurities
from the blood, building up the diseased tissues
andgrringhealtbytoneto thowbolo system.
"For several years I have been troubled with
that terribly disagreeable disease, catarrh. I
took Hood's Sarsaparilla with the very best re
sults. It enred me of that continual dropping
in my throat, and stuneo-up feeling. It has
also helped my mother, who has taken it for
run down state of health and kidnej trouble. I
recommend Hood's Sarsaparilla to all as a good
medicine." Mbs. S. D. Heath, Putnam, Conn.
