There's it rurioiiM little tobiiri o Htore on
nc of tlio leailiuu South End tliuroimu

and Linn small Hint one might pWM by
hundred times without ever noticing it.
The door opening Into this little shop is
just off the sidewalk, and MUptoM over
the door is a large "'''' wooden pipe,
which serves M a tlgn to indicate the char
acter of the place.
While MUntWing down the street the
other afternoon the writer's attention was
attracted to this little shop by noticing two
or three men (;axiK iuteretrtedly Into its
narrow window, and he paused to sw what
they were admiring. Being interested in
Jieorecliaum pipes, the young newspaper
man thought he would like to look more
closely at some of those in the display, io
he opened the door and stepped iuto the
It was a curious little room, perhaps '.V
feet ,.tf: by 7 or 8 feet wide, and ntvar the
.loor wan a small showcase, oue oud of
which eoutaiiiud a few Urns of cixare and
the rest was tilled with piw, multly of
meerschaum, many of them in very odd
patterns. The shelves behiud the showcase
were piled high with all kinds of smoker's
articles and small boxes coutaiuimj pieces
uf raw lueerschauui and amber.
And ou the opposite wail were huug nev
er si very qu.uut pictures. At the back of
the ithop wua a small lathe with a foot
pedal, aud beside it was a kit of tOOatpa
miliar to the work of pipe makiug At this
lathe the proprietor of the place was iudus
trioasly working on a piece of amber, to be
used as the mouthpiece of a pipe, aud he
looked upas the door opened aud the JTOUng
man approached bint, Wheu meerschaum
carving was spoken of h became euthusi
astic, and was very willing to calk.
"Did you make those pipes iu the u:u
dowr" was llkad.
"Yes, sir, and those iu the showcase, too.
Due those pipes are unite plaiu beside some
of the curviug I have done. There is very
little meerschaum carviug done iu Boston,
aud, m fact, there are but tew tirst class
artists in meerschaum In this country,
nud cveu those came from some foreigu
place. There are a good many workmen
here who cut plain pipes out of meer
ichaum, because that work, liie any other
tratie, can be acquired; but in order for a
man to do any due curving he must be a
bora artist. Iu this country men learn
only a part of a trade, but where 1 came
from a young man U obliged to learn nil
trade from beginning to end.
"My lather was turner to the king of
Prussia, and so, you see, he must have been
a tin artist. My brother and myself wero
brought up iu the art of carving, aud my
brother was the iinest carver I ever saw,
either in meerschaum or wood. I wish you
could see some examples of hiswori. How
ever, I will show you some specimens of
carving that I tuv made, and try aud tell
you what you waut to know.
SOAKING THE MEERsCHAt M.
"When an order comes for a pij I some
times have to look through an entire box
to find a piece of meerschaum that will suit
the design I wish to make. I then soak the
piece in cold water until it sinks, which
will tak'j from lifteen to twenty minutes.
I then saw the block as near as possible to
the size required, so as cut to w ate the
meerschaum, and rough out the pipe with
a knife. Placing the block on the lathe I
cut the plain part of the pipe, and bore the
stem to tne bowl. If the pipe is to be carved
1 lay it away until thoroughly dried.
"The meerschaum has to be hard in order
to carve it. When the carving is completed
the pipe is boiled in beeswax and then
polished. After the amber stem has been
inserted the pipe is finished and ready for
the customer. It is not generally known,
but a meerschaum pipo would never color
o beautifully if it were not boiled in wax.
"An ordinary meerschaum pipe can be
made in three days, but if it is to be Barred
of course co specified time can be stated.
An artist might be many weeks, or even
months, on a single pipe."
"Do you have many orders for elaborate
"Not so many as I used to have years ago.
I suppose if I had a nice store down town I
should get more orders for fine work. Bit
Americans who can afford to pay several
hundred dollars for a beautiful piece of
meerschaum carving will, as a rule, buy it
abroad, oftentimes as a souvenir of some
country which they huve visited. I have
been in this country ov er twenty years, and
at first I worked for the largest meerschaum
deaier in New York. A first class artist
can carve meerschaum iuto almost any con
"I haven't any very large specimens of
my work here now. but hero are a few
(mall ones which I think will interest you."
An exquisitely carved pipe represented a
hunter with his gun leveled, stealing cau
tiously around a stump (the bowl;, and
ready to fire at three deer, which are
placed in realistic poses over the stem. It
was the work of weeks to make this pipe.
A bull's head with horns of amber was a
Soinoof his best work, the artist aaid,
was made from photographs. Shortly
nftcr the war he made a great many
meerschaum pipes, ou which were carved
the busts of the leading generals, such as
(it ant, Sheridan and Sherman. Nowaday!
a customer often wanta a carving of the
bust of his favorite ac tor, singer or public
man, and also of the head of his horse or
dog, etc. One of the largest carvings he
ever made was a war pitta, in which
twelve figures were represented.
Another design consisted of live birds
artistically arranged about the pipe. A
uniquo design represented a Lust-hall
pitcher and catcher in playing attitudes.
A line piece of carving represented a Kiiake
curling around askull, in the latter being
a hole for a cigarette.
'i'hla would seem to point a moral, and is
certainly a very unique idea.
A medallion about the size of a half
dollar Is really the finest piece of carving
of all. It represents t lie piazza of a house,
on which is a table with a man and dog
standing beside It. The figures could not
be brongbt out by the naked eye, but uu
der the microscope they are rnarvelously

Usually upon our raids It was much
easier to obtain meat thau bread. But in
Indiana and Ohio we ulways found bread
ready baked nt every hoUM, In Ohio, on
mure than one occasion, In deserted houses
we found pies hot from the oven, displayed
upon table.-, conveniently spread. The first
time that 1 witnessed this tori of QOtpltal
it y was w hen I rode up to a house where a
party of my men were standing around a
table garnished as 1 have described, eying
the pies hungrily, but showing no diapoai
U0H to touch t hem. 1 asked in astonish
incut why they were so abstinent.
tine of them replied that they feared the
pie ; might be poisoned. I was quite sure,
on the contrary, thai they were Intended
as a propitiatory offering. 1 had always
been fond of pies -these were of luscious
apples so I bade the spokesman hand me
ouo of the largest und proceeded to eat it.
The meu watched mo vigilantly for two
or three minutes, anil then as 1 teemed
much better, after my repast, they took hold
ravenously.- Basil W. Duke iu Century.

Slirawd Petal the Oreiit,
Peter the Great adopted rather a novel
means to couviuce his subjects that they
should change their clothes to couform
with the modern costumes of wester.i
F.urope. Believing, as is wll known his
torically, that the future greatness of Bus
sia depended upon tlje facility with which
it was made to assimilate all that was best
i:i other countries, he had succeeded In in
troducing some important innovation into
the half civilized regioti over which beheld
sway. At length he had patterns of cloth
hung up at the gates of the towns, und
those who did not conform to the fashions
thus set were docked publicly. Albeit this
was done in its pleasant a manner as pos
sible, for Peter believed in being good nut
ured with his people. They, ou the other
hand, loudly demurred and used the argu
ment that what was good enough for their
forefathers was good enough for them.
"Very well,'' said the sagacious Peter.
Iu 1703 be gave a dinner at Moscow to cele
brate the marria.tj of oue of his jesters,
and insisted that it should be conducted in
strict conformity with ancient usage.
Thire had formerly been a superstitious
custom of not lighting a fire on a wedding.
So Peter made them do without a lire, al
though it was very cold. He wouldn't give
them any wine, because their forefathers
never drank it. When they remonstrated
he reminded them that it was a poor rule
which did not work all around, and thus,
by his good natarfd greatness, wheedled
his people into new coats about the hard
est thing that can be done with humanity.

Three Sacred Trrci.
The palm, the oak and the ash are the
three trees which, since time immemorial,
were held to be sacred trees. The first
among them, which figures on the oldest
monuments and pictures of the Egyptians
and Assyrians, is thu date polm homr-.tan.
Tradition of a later period says that when
Adam left Paradise he was allowed to tok;i
with him three things a myrtle, because
it was the most lovely anfl most scented
flower on the earth; a wheat ear, because
It had the most nourish merit, and a date,
because It was the most glorious fruit of
the earth. The date from Paradise was in
si, me marvelous nay brought to the Dejaz.
From it have come all the date palms iu
the world. n'l Allah destined it to bo the
food of all true ' levers, who shall con
quer every eo'jri wnere the date palm

Our progress quite rapid In Kentucky,
Was now accelerated, and we were habitu

the saddle, very frequently not halting at
night or going into cump at all. For the
first three or four days we saw nothing of
the Inhabitants save in their character as
iiii.it in. when they forced thouiselves on
our attention much more frequently than
we desired. The houses wore entirely de
serted. Often we found the kitchen fire
blazing, the keys hanging in the cupboard
lock, und the chickens sauntering about
the yard with a confidence that proved
that they had never before seen soldiers.
As tho first scare wore off, however, we
found the women und children remaining
at home, while tho men went to mus
ter. When a thirsty cnvalryman rode up
to n house to inquire for buttermilk ho was
generally met by a buxom dame with n ball
dozen or more small children peeping out
from her voluminous skirts, who, in re

would say, "The men hev all gone to the
