New TJrleana Times.
Southern literature ! We have beard '.ot it
and read of it lo! these many years, as some
thing about to blase out in transcendent splen
dor, but its glory ia still prospective. The
bantling ia painfully slog in getting on its
legs. It is not oat of the cradle, and we are
anil feeding it on pap. More crude and rapid
and pretentious puffing " and gasconade have
been written about southern literature than,
about anything else tbat la southern or north
ern or eastern or western. And for all tbat
the good time for southern literature ia yet to
' . No literature, ancient or modern, ever waa
made, or ever will be made, by bragging about
what we can do; it muat be dona. Nor can it
be done by disparagement of what is done else
where, or by denouncing and oomphtiuing of
lack of appreciation and recognition.
The fault is in a great measure our own.
We must learn that the literature or the art,
which has no better claim to recognition than
the fact that it is southern, can never maintain
its chum to recognition at alL It must be able
to stand on ita merits, and to challenge com-
oarison with what ia produced elsewhere, in
dependantty of any reference to sectional or
igia. Literature and art are eminently cath
olic not sectional or provincial. Tbe history,
manners customs, usages, language, aoenery,
and other Incidental peculiarities of particular
countries, racea. aud sections mar furnish ma-
tu rials for the exercise of high art, pictorial or
literary; but that is a very different thing; the
art Itself must be founded upon catholic prln-
otpiee npon loose touches or nature wnioa
make the whole world kin. It must bo inde
pendent of the nativirv or nauonalitv of tbe
artist, whether he be Jew or Greek. Nubian or

"People who climb on a passenger train
when sho is two or throe boars late little lmsg
lno what endless planning and management it
takes to get her through safely. Lot a freight
get behind time and wo can handlo ber by run
ain her on another train's time, but a pas
senger breaks up everything on the road. A
train dispatcher must be familiar with every
eircuintttance and every possiblo combination
of circumstances. He mnat know on just
' what portions of tho road fan! tiino can bo
mads and give orders accordingly. Ho must
never give an order for a certain timo to be
made unless he is positively certain that tbe
grade aud condition of the weather will permit
of such time being made. To-day I may
order a train to run from station A to station
li, and another for a train to run from IS to A.
when the sanio ordr to-morrow would precip
itate a collision Von have got to know all tho
men on the lino. Why, on that road that I
worked on there would bo engineers and con
ductors that could never get a train through
on time. Then there would be others tbat
.would never be lato excopt in case of accident
. Why, aomotimoH during my eight hours of
duty I would give V) train orders. Just think
of that for a moment. Here is a passenger
train four hours late and a freight aide-tracked
at almost every station. Of course that puts
every train behind time. Firut I have to order
the ojwrator to put out his flag and hold the
train for orders, and then I havo to send the
order ami wait for it to bo repeated back. At
tho Haute timo a train may bo be passing a sta
tion live mites away, whero 1 want to hold and
eido-track her. All this timo I muat not only
keep a clear track for the pasaongor train,
but must not unnecessarily detain the
freight. HoiiiHtimos riht iu the middle of a

"Why did you luave the business?
"ItecauHe I was growing a year older every
week. I had tbe work of ten itlon upon my
shoulder. You often hear about the bravo
engineer, clinging with firm resolve and calm
resignation to the throttle while the engine is
plunging on toward inevitable deatruction.
Ills responsibility is nothing. He hao only e,
ningle train and has no tint? hot to obey rules.
The train dUptt?b;rha &. hundred trains ua
dcr Lis linger that presses upon the key. A
r.ioinfeut's delay ta u. n eigUf, and the dispatcher
is cussed. The eight hours you put in bending
over your key seems like a week. Your head
swims and grows dizzy beneath ita awful re
sponsibility. No more train dispatching for
me, if you please."
Coffee It cans Moulded from Dough.
New York Sun.
"Give me your opinion of those, young man,"
aaid the east side grocer, as he spread before
the reporter a handful of coffee beans. Tbey
aren't very regular in size, are they? Now
compare them with these, and tell me which
you think are the better
The grocer placed a second handful along
side of the others. Tho two lota were of the
eame dark brown color, and at a little distance
away presented no vary marked difference.
Closer inspection showed that while the coffee
beans first ahown wore not all of the same size,
tho second handful were of extraordinary reg
ularity, the beans being very plump and large.
T know what you are going to tell me, and
at first glance any one would aay so. Your
opinion is that the last lot ia the best isn't it?
Well, the difference between the two batches is
that those which I showed you first are a fair
lot of coffee beans, while the others aren't
coffee at all, and never grew on a coffee bush."
What kind of a bush did they grow on?
No bush at alL They are a manufactured
article. You need not look as if you didn't be
lieve it, for is't a fact on which you may safely
risk your last dime, a ney are nomine more or
less than Imitations, made out or dough, and
browned up to resemble true coffee. They
are made in molds and baked afterward.
Each one ia almost perfect in shape, and all are
alike. You won't find genuine coffee beans to
have auch regularity."
Thev look ail right but it strikes me that
no one would mistake tne coverage made from
tbem for couee.
"You are wrong again, young man. no ra-
sdoc table grocer would be foolish enough to
give any customer who buys a pound of coffee
a pound of the imitation. No, indeed. They
mix it in the proportion of four or five of
coffee to one of the imitation. Nobody ex
amines each bean. You bear parsons com
plaining of bad coffee all the timo. 'I'm sure I
can't tell bow it is,' says the housekeeper; 'I
buy the coffee in the bean and grind it myself.
I am aura it ia not adulterated.'
"Yen see. the greoer can mix chicory with
ground coffee, but when coffee ia bought in the
bean something's got to be done. Some bril
liant mind got over the difficulty by n king
coffee beans to order."

Porcelain type is coming into use In France.
Two large printing bouses in Paris have pro
nounced it thoroughly satisfactory for broad
side work. Porcelain types closely resemble
those made of metal, but are much leas liable
to become broken or damaged from falls. Ia
color printing they take the ink more readily
than wood or metaL . They are represented to
be from 30 to 40 per cent cheaper than metal,
and of about tbe same pries as wood type.

A af esiey -9f aklngr Memory.
George Harding, Esq., the distinguished
Philadelphia patent la-ryer, rrmartablo for
& retentive memory.
On Saturday 2Ir. Hm'diiiS rode dovrc to Wall
street. New Yorjt, in a Broadway omnibna A
beautiful young lady got in and handed fifty
cents to the attorney, requesting him to please
hand it to the driver.
"With pleasure," said Mr. Harding, at the
same time passing the fifty cents up through
the hole to the stage man.
The driver made the change and handed
forty cents back to ftfr. Harding who quietly
put it away into his vest pocket aud went on
reading a mowing-machine brief.
Then all was silence.
The'young lady began to .look nervously at
Mr. Harding for her change. "Can it be pos
sible that this is one of those. polite confidence
men we read of in booka?" she thought to her
self. Then she looked up timidly and asked Mr.
Harding something about the Brooklyn ferry.
"Oh, the boats run yery regular every three
minutes," replied the interrupted lawyer, try
ing to smile. Then he went on reading his
"Do the boats run from Wall street to Asto
ria?" continued tho young lady.
"I don't know, madame," replied Mr. II.,
petulantly; "I am not a resident of New York;
I'm a PhUadelphian."
"Ah ! yes" (then a) silence).
Mr. Harding again burietLhiniself in hisbrief,
while the young lady ahemed, and asked him
what the fare was in the New York stages.
"Why, ten cents, madame-r-ten cents."
But I gave you fifty cents to give to the
driver" interrupted the young lady, "and "
"Didn't he return your change? Is it pos
sible? Here, driver!" the lawyer continued,
dropping the brief and pulling the strap vio
lently, "why the dickens don't you give the lady
nor lorvjr ceum, bit, iuny cents .
' "I did give her the change. I gave forty
cents to von. aud you put it in your pocket,"
shouted back the driver.
"To me?" said Mr. Harding, feeling in his
vest pocket, from which his fingors brought
out four ten-cent pieces. "Gracious goodness,
madame! I beg 10,000 pardons; but but "
"Oh, never mind,'' said the lady, eyeing him
smiCioualy; "you know a lady in a wicked
city like New York has to look out for herself.
It's no matter it wasn't the forty cents; but
before I left home mother cautioned me against
polite confidence men, who look so good out
side, but "
"Goodness gracious t my dear woman!" ex
cShned Mr. Harding, while all the passengers
eyed him with suspicion. "I assure you "
But the stage stopped and the young lady,
holding fast to ber portemonnaie, got out ana
fled into the custom house, while Mr. Harding
went on filling up in this form:
"Goodness gracious! Did you ever? O Lord!
What shall I do?" eta
The lawyer got so excited that be went back
to Philadelphia in a hurry. He even forgot to
take a big fee in a mowing machine case. He
says he'd rather pay 110,000 than, to let tbe
Philadelphia fellows get hold of tho story.
