In the mountains, at the Quinto do Sexio, Portugal, a famous Fortt
Wine district where the custom of treadingf the grapes for Port Wine;
is still in vogue. From ten to a dozen men or women for each gang :
in turn continue the treading, day and night, during the four or five ;
weeks vintage. Some of the treading vats are large enough for three -.
separate rows of ten men each, who with their white breeches wel'i
tucked up, their arms on each other's shoulders, raise and tread their,
feet alternately, with song and shouts to keep the lazier ones up to tht
work, and a band with string instruments enlivens the hours.

Spccr, of New Jersey. Uses Hollers instead of reet
It is lrom this district the vines were imported over torty years age
that now fill the vineyards of the Spccr Wine Co., at Passaic.
At Passaic the same kind of grapes are crushed between large rol
lers of rubber, revolved by steam. This is the only place in
this country where the real genuine Port Wine is made from the
Oporto grape and they are grown right in Si-eer's Vineyards.
These vineyards extend over i of a mile along one of the Main
avenues of Passaic, and comprise fifty six acres. The soil being,
rich in iron makes the wine most valuable for Medical use.
Are well known to be of the highest character, the oldest and most
refined Wines in America, equal if not superior to any wines in the
world. They consist of Port, Sherry, Burgundy, Claret, Sauternc
Wines, and ir irir Climax Brandy. Mr. Spccr has some Wine in his
cellars that he made over thirty eight years ago. All of Spcer's
Wines and Brandy are very old, rich, well rounded, soft and delicate.
Every family should have a bottle or two of each vanity f Spccr'c
Wines and Brandy always in the home, for sickness or fr.milv use.

About two years ago a travelinc

A ratber still bruhh (about four and a
balf Inches long without reckoning the
length of tho hnndle), such as the one
illuHtrnted, is an admirable adjunct to
the luuiulry otitllt. The hiinds o heavy
licet of wool and heavy scums or bund,
are much more easily scrubbed clcun
tliun rubU'd clean on tho bourd. Flan
nels of pure wool, which are not rubbed,
but scrubbed with a brush, usiug water
ofteneil with ammonia or borax, and a
white, non-resinous soup, aud all filial
ly dried on a wooden frame the size und
nhupe of the garments washed, will not
shrink and grow hard. The rubbing of
wool flannel on a board causes the ulti
mate spiral fibers of the wool to become
entangled and shrink from tills cause.
This cannot happen when the flannels
are scri'bbed with a brush, and tho dirt
is so much easier removed from the In
terstices of the cloth In this way tliat
the labor of washing is malrrially les
sened. When wool is wet nnd driedtlie
ultimate spiral fibers draw up unless
the cloth or garment Is stretched on a
board f rnnui so this process cannot taki
place. Hurtl water and resinous, brown
soaps cause flannels to be hurd. A
brush with 11 convenient handle will
cost about ten cents. The garment to
be cleaned may he laid across the rub
bing board, and the moreBoitcd portion
scrubbed more easily when the brush
hns n handle. N". Y. Tribune.
