The Home Life of the Natives—
Light and Airy Costumes.
Yokohama Cor. Phila. Press.
What the eye discovers in Japan
may be recorded ; yet that is but the
fringe of the mantle that covers the
inner life of any people. The home
and the fireside communion is not
vouchsafed to the foreigners in Japan.
Courteously and politely as be may be
treated, he still is kept at a distance
from all the intimacies of home life that
distinguish the people of the Western
World. There are so many "otions
and acts that seem to be spontaneous
with this people that are so directly op
posite to the received ideas of the
Western World that one is amazed at
the apparent indifference to many mat
ters considered of prime importance
elsewhere. Here you shall see as you
journey on the Tokadio, the great artery
of the travel of the empire, the peasant
woman naked to the hips, and the
limbs uncovered above the knee, and
without a thought that it is not the
most natural thing in the world. "Evil
to him who evil thLks." I know not,
but it may be as a more elaborate
covering of the body. These women
nurse their children without the thin
disguise of covering the head of the in
fant and the fount at which it draws
its life. When the cold demands that
they don warm clothing for their com
fort they put it on. When the heat
oppresses them they bare their shoul
ders and breaste and limbs to the
breezes. Uuconeerned as if no eye
upon thetn, they got about their
daily labor and household duties in
that state of undress that would shock
the life out of a fastidious woman of
the Western World.
The men do likewise, only more so.
A cloth is tied about their sturdy
brown bodies, and hangs in as graceful
folds as the Roman toga, but there is
little eonoealment. On the street, in
the house or in the field as in tuy can
be seen in this attire as more complete
ly dressed. Children, entirely naked,
are running about as unconcerned and
unnoticed as if it was enjoined on them
to do so. Now all this seems so far
away from what it should be that it
causes astonishment when first wit
nessed, but a repetition of the sight
soon familiarizes one to it—so much so
that it almost loses its singularity.
There tire no more indications of rude
ness or intended immodesty than are
observed nrronjj those who wear ample
clothing. In the treaty ports, where
are congregated the foreigners, these
things are not palpably apparent. In
the interior, during the heat of the day,
it is a common sight in all the towns
and villages to see the mother stretched
upon the mats sleeping, the babe be
side her taking its nourishment, the
man or men of the house and tho chil
dren also dozing away as if there was
no future, and all the clothing that is
visible would be about the loins end
hips of the womau. The houses, too,
during the day are entirely open to the
gaze of the most inquisitive. In travel
ing along the road the itikisha man
will stop at any teahouse or hotel and
deliberately denude himself before all
who may bo present, and proceed to
wash his body as if there was no eye
open for miles in auy direction from
At the bathing establishments in
tho interior there is no seclusion at
tempted in the business. At Kega,
A»hinoysi, Umota andelbewbere in the
ilakone mountains the hotels are pro
vided with bathing facilities, but pri
vacy is UQthought ol by tho Japanese.
The bathing quarters are generally in
the portion of tho house most accessi
ble to the residents iu it and where
passing and repassing is constantly
going on. The bathing places are
large square boxes, into which tho
water is constantly flowing and pass
ing off by overflow. It is no uncom
mon thing to see men, women and
children bathing together, dressed and
undressed in the open space around
the bath. There is no suspicion that
there can be any impropriety in doing
this. It seems to lie a favorite recrea
tion to meet at the bath and gossip and
chat while they enjoy the washing.
The huslmud and wife see no error in
the thing. They will deliberately un
dress before strangers and go into the
samp bath with them without tho least
hesitation. And in the private bath
houses of Yokohama, exclusively for
the use of the feminine sex, all the at
tendants are males. These thingH ap
pear so stiftrigo to those unaccustomed
to them that the first promptings of
criticism is to adjudge that there is au
utter absence ol all shame and modesty.
Yet this people undoubtedly fail to see
where immodesty plays any part in
this regard.
The construction of tho houses ad
mits of but partial privacy. Thin pa
per partitions, which slido past one an
other, are not much impediment to the
transmission of sound, and at night
the shadows made by the lights iu the
different apartments give very correct
Indications of what is going on. Life
in a Japanese hotel is a revelation of
carelessness one would have to travel
far to duplicate. The construction of
the house is responsible for much of
this, for every occupied room is enter
ed from u corridor open to tho sunlight
and general use, tho sliding paper
screens when in position admitting all
the light that ground glass would
give. The occupants are seryed with
their meals iu their rooms, each per
son ordering as ho desires at any
moment during the day or evening.
An order given for a meal to bo served
is filled immediately. A clap of the
hand summons a servant to attend
you, and that without delay The
matted floor is the sofa and lounge to
sit upon, there being provided a cot
ton or silk quilted cushion for the use
of each peraou. During the day it is
very rare to find the screens closed at
the front of the room occupied bv vis
itors. The interior of every depart
ment Is as open to tho inspection of
every ono in the house as it is to the
Übfuu ot tho uovujiuut Thu cuumott
tion is the property of neighbors as
well, unless carried on in a very low
tone. At night the bedding arrange
ments are prepared when required.
A number of thick quilts, piled one
upon the otber, complete the outfit, j
with a rest for the head. A light is
placed in the room, that is supposed
to burn all night. It is a small taper,
• placed in a veßsel containing a vegeta

The preparation of food at the hotels !
lis a process that can be witnessed by
| the guests, as the kitchen and cooking
. facilities are placed in open view of all.
. Kitchen, store-room, pantry and the
I general office of the establishment gen
erally occupy the most conspicuous
room on the premises. The cooking is
done on portable furnaces and over
charcoal fires. There are no chimneys
needed or used. Fish are generally
kept in a reservoir and killed as they
are needed. Fresh vegetables are kept
under trickling water, and in all well
conducted places there is a scrupulous
neatness manifest in all the culinary
arrangements. Every one, guest or |
otherwise, must take off his shoes be
fore he can enter the establishment.
There are no creaking noises or tramp
j ing heard to irritate the nervous, and
corns never trouble one while in a
Japanese hotel. The mats upon the
floor are as yielding to the tread as the
most luxurious carpets ever made. I
wish I could say there were no fleas
to trouble a guest as he seeks to com
pose himself to sleep, but in truth I
cannot, and a great drawback it is to
one's comfort to be pestered with these
nimble insects that are domesticated
and at home iu these places. The thick
mats upon the floor make famous places
to hide in. Mosquitoes are guared
against by large nets attached to the
ceiling of the room and reaching to the
floor, being nearly as large as the room.
When this net is ia position for the
night, if it is in perfect condition, the
mosquito is left out in the cold, lie
may sing bis song, but he cannot bite.
If some one would invent some meth
od to hive the fleas he would make his
fortune quickly.

The Scope of the Sowing Machine
There are few conquests for tho sew
ing machine of the future to make in •
the line ef variety. So various have
been the uses to which our present
machines have been adapted that lit
tle is left tne band needle to do. There <
are machines to sew the heaviest leath
er, and others to stitch the finest gauze
or lace Machines make button holes
and eyelet holes superior to the best
hand work, and nt a speed that would
asphyxiate and ordinary seamstress ;
while buttons are sewed oil by mod
ern attachments faster, faster in both
senses,than can possibly IK? done by the
needle with the "eye in the other end."
There are overseam machines that sew ■
carpets, others for (('love work, and
similar ones for fur sewing, and these
leave a seam that flattens out neatly,
and the stitching is as smooth and
regular as can lie desiircd by the most
exacting Other machines sew books
and pamphlets, while still others,
with wire for thread, sew brooms and t
brushes. Sewing machines with the
shuttle concealed in the end of a long j
and slender arm sew tho soles on hoots
and shoes with a fa-peed and rapidity !
that make two pair cost less than one j
pair would otherwise cost, while out- ■
lasting four pair of the old fashioned I
ready made foot gear.
Dash machines will sew around the
dash of a curriuge almost in the twink
ling of an eye, and such is their ca
pucity that they will stitch to the
centre of an eight foot circle. Writing
and embroidery of various kinds may
be done on almost any of our modern
machines without any attachment,
and some will darn and patch in a
manner to delight, the tired mother of
a household of romping boys. Two or
more parallel rows of stitching may be
done on the twin—there may be a
triplet—needle machine ; and one of
the latest achievements of this machine
is to sew the flat seam in four bolt
cloth, a feat until recently considered
impossible. Cordage is sewed by ma
chine, and so is straw braid for hats
and bonnets. The scope of the sew
iug luachiuu rft-TUJd limited ouly by thu
variety of work the Deeds of mankind
—and womaukind—may demand. The
sewing machine inveutor, as a class,
may soon have to sit down as did Al
exander and cry because there are no
more wcr'ds to conquer. He will
doubtless regret that ho was u a born
a little earlier in the sewing machine
age, before all the great inventions had
been studied out and perfected. There
! is little left for him to do except iu the
, direction of perfecting the present niv
I chines and cheapening their production.
But even here lie will lind ample and
profitable work for his invective ge
nius aud mechauicial skill — Sewiny

A Story of a Woman Whose
Husband Was a "Jiner."
She was about forty-five years old
aud well dressed, had black huir rather
i thin and tinged with gray, and eyes in
which gleamed the fires of a determi
nation not to be easily balked,
walked into a well known lawyer's
| office in Ronney's block, aud requested
a private interview, aud having obtain
ed it, and satisfied herself that the iaw
students were not listening at the key
hole, said slowly, solemnly and im
pressively, *"1 waut a divorce."
"What for? I supposed ycu bad
one of the best of husbands," said the
"I s'pose that's what everybody
♦hinks, but if they knew what I've
suffered in teu years they'e wonder I
had not scalded him long ago. I ought
to, but for the sake of the young ones
I've borne it and said nothing. I've
told him, though, what he might de
pend on, and now the time's come I
won't stand it, young ones or uo young
ones. I'll have a divorce, and if the
neighbors want to blab themselves
hoarse about it they may, for I won't
stand it another day."
'•But what's the matter ? Dont your
husband provide for you? Isn't he
true to you ? Don't be treat you
kindly? pursued the lawyer.
"We get vituuls enough, and 1 don't
know but he's as true and kind as men
in general; and he never knocked one
of us down. I wish he had, then I'd
get him into jail and kno-v where he
was at nights," retorted the woman.
"Then what's your complaint against
him ?,'
"Well, if you must know, he's one
of them plaguey jiners."
"A what?"
"A jiner. One of them pesky fools
that's always jining something. There
cau't nothing come along that's dark
and sly and hidden, but he'll jine it. If
anybody should get up a society to
buru his house down, he'd jiue it as
soon as be could git iu, an' if he bad to
pay to get in he'd go iu all the sudden
er. We hadn't beeu married more'o
two months before he jintd the Know
Nothins. We lived on a farm then,
nnd every Saturday night he'd come
tearin' iu before supper, and grab a fist
full of nut cakes aud go off gnawing
'em, aud that's the last I'd see of him
till morniu.' And every other night
he'd roll and tumble in bis sleep, aud
holler, 'l'ut none but Americans on
guard, George Washington!' and rainy
days he'd go out iu the corn-baru and
jab at a picture of the pope with an old
bayonet that was there. I ought to
put my foot down then ; but be fooled
me so with bis lies about the pope's
coming to make all the Yankee girls
marry Irishmen, and eat up all the
babies that weren't born with crosses
on their foreheads, that I let him goon
and kinder encourage him in it. Then
he jined the Masons. P'raps you
know whut them IKS, but I don't, 'cept
they think they're the same kind of
critters that built Solomon's temple
and took care of his concubines; nnd
nil the darned nonsense and gab about
worshipful masters, and squares and
compasses and sich like that we had iu
the house for the next six months, you
never see the beat! And he's never
outgrown it nuther. What do you
think of a man, squire, that'll dress
himself in a white apron, 'bout big
euuff for a monkey's bil>, aud go march
ing up and down making motions and
talking the foolishcst lingo at a picture
of George Washington iu it green jack
et, and a truss on his stomach '( Ain't
he a loonvtick '! Well, that's my Sam,
aud I've stood it long as I'm going to.
"The next lug the fool made was
into the Odd Fellows. I made it warm
for him when became home and told
me he'd jined them ; hut he kinder
pacified me by telling that they had a
sort of a branch show that took women,
and he'd get me in an soon as ho found
out how to do it. Well, one night he
come home and said I'd beeu proposed
and Homebody had blackballed me.
Did it hisself, of course. Did'nt want
me around knowing to his goings on.
Of course he didn't, and I told him so.
"Then lie jined the sons of Malta.
Didn't say nothing to me about it, but
sneaked oil' one night pretending he'd
got to set up with u sick Odd Feller;
and I'd never found it out only he
come home looking like a man that had
been through a thrashing machine, and j
1 wouldn't do a thing for him till he
owned up. And so its gone from bail
to wus, and from wus to wusßcr, jiniu'

while, but 'tain't no use; aud wheu be
come homo last night and told me he'd
gone into a new oue and been made
, Grand Guide of the Knights ofllorror,
I told him I'd quit; and I will.
Here the lawver interrupted, saying:
"Well, your husband is pretty well
initiated, that's a fact; but the Court
will hardly call that a good cause for a
divorce. The most of the societies vou
men:i >n ar>> composed of honorable

you, and which wjuld no', see you
' r him suffer if you were sick."
I "See uie suffer when he's sick !
■ Take care of me when 1 am dead !
:W< 11, 1 gut ps not; I can take care of
myself when he's dead: and if I can't
I can get another. Ther's p'enty of

selves when I'm sick, either. If I
want to be sick aud suffer, ii,'s none of
their business; especially after all the
suffcrin' I've had when I ain't sick be
cause of their carryin's on. And you
needn't try and make me believe it's
all right, either. I know what it is to

remarked the lawyer.
She looked him square in the eyes
and said, "I do believe you're a jiner

Retreat of the Floods.
Special dispatch to the Press.!
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. 18.—The
waters are falling rapidly, und the re
ports from up the river are very en
couraging. In five more days, if there
are no more rains, the river will be
within its banks. The water is not
much higher now than it was in 1847.
As the river recedes the ruin that it
has wrought becomes more apparent.
The entire eastern end of the city will
have to be rebuilt and new streets
A more desolate picture than tbo
flooded districts presented to-day can
not be imagined. A light drizzle of
snow and sleet was falling, the bills
about the city were covered with snow.
The receding river has left mud aud
drift and filth everywhere. Through
this dreury waste the ruined homes of
the poor lie scattered, many of them
ended completely over, and all in more
or less wretched condition. Hundreds
of people were wading about through
the mud, seeking in vain to identify
their homes. Frightful discoveries are
looked for now, as nearly 100 families
are known to be missing.
The loss of lives by the falling of the
Soldiers' Homo in Jeffersonvillu proves
to havo been exaggerated. Thepoople
iu thut city were so frighteuod by fho
floods that they sent out the most
ghastly stories of the number of deaths.
Several were injured, but Mrs. Mary
AI leu is the only ono known to bo
killeii. The others are recovering.
The body of an unknown negro man
was found floating among some logs
near the poiut last night. He bad a
long gush over the right temple, but
whether he got it by lH>'>.g knocked
about among the logs or was murdered
and thrown in the water will doubtless
never bo known. The churches to
night are lighted by oil lamps. The
gas company do not expect to be ab'o
to have gas before Tuesday, the pipes
being filled with a muddy deposit that
is exceedingly difficult to get out. Col
lections were taken up in the churches
for the flood sufferers Nearly 125,000
has alreudy been collected iu this city
The worst, however, is yet to come.
These people, who havo been driven
out by the water, have lost their homes,
and will be a burden on the city for
months to come. Nearly one-fifth of
the population is homeless. In the fir»t
flush of the disaster all are willing to
contribute, but when it bee »rues neces
sary to support these people for months
charity may become exhausted. A re
markable fact in connection with all
these people is that, though they have
been turned adrift on the city, crimes
of all kinds huve been singular! y scarce.
The sand-baggers have been plying
their vocation with more success, now
: that the city is without light, but they
| were bold even when the city was well
•Jcffcrßouvillo und New Albany nro
still suffering und need all the outside
help they can get. The river is now
forty-one feet over the falls, and is fall
, ing at the rate of an inch an hour.
Sickness, caused by improper shelter
and luck of food, is very prevalent, and
this is causing more trouble tbuu any
| thing else.
j A big handed sawyer named Shaw,
Put his fiuger too near the buzz-saw,
lie saw his mistake,
Hut each pain aud ache,
St. Jacobs Oil cured in his paw.
A rheumatic old mau named Meeker
Wus sick a whole year in Topecker,
He there would have died,
But St. Jacobs Oil tried,
It sent him back cured to Oswoeger.
