The task of a man who is compelled to
get up a certain amount of pointed humor
daily is more laborious than that of a
hod carrier. It is something like it, too.
lie just carries stuff to the level of the
average comprehension, and having de
posited it before the person to get the
benefit of It, goes after more. Uow does
the humorist workf Well, it depends
largely upon his temperament, and
greater or less fitness for his specialty.
Some men, although t2iey may have fair
ability in some lines of writing, are slow
to originate a humorous idea, notwith
standing that they can appreciate it in
others. To such, the writing of a humor
ous paragraph or article is something to
be dreaded. It would be a violation of
newspaper ethics for a professional writer
to decline to get up an article on any
subject or from any standpoint. Given
a theme and told to treat it humorously,
the most sedate member of a newspaper
staff will attack it without hesitation,
and, in his own time, will do the work
well, perhaps as well as the man whoso
specialty is humor.
But, ah, the labor of the sedate man I

Claret aud Oysters.
Walters In the restaurants, particularly
where table d'hote is served, say they can
always tell a lady who was reared in the
country. The lady may have been a New
Yorker for a quarter of a century, and the
sharp brilliancy of her diamonds and general
adornmont may convey the idea that she is
one of the grand dames of the city, but when
she gets to her claret it is all up with he.
The waiters say that nine out of ten such
ladies put sugar in their claret, and this is
supposed to shock a thoroughbred Kew
Yorker. Perhaps the waiters discover her at
the start when she tackles the oysters. Many
ladies, whose girlhood homes were iu the
rural districts, insist on using vinegar, pepper
and salt In big doses on their oysters, and
this also is supposed to bo contrary to the
ideas of the born New Yorkers. New York

CHARCOAL BURNING A LOST ART.
It Was Responsible for a Monstrour Wast,
of Timber A Itetter Method.
Charcoal burning began in New Jersey in
1730, when Cornelius Hoard started an iron
forge at Little Falls, and it wa? greatly ex
tended when Ilaenclever came to this country
In 1701 and started several forges and furnaces
on his baronial possessions in Passaic county.
It increased rapidly until coal came into usa
for iron smelting, aud sine then it has gradu
ally decreased, so that the trees have had a
chance to grow again on the denudivl hi!K
In recent years nearly all ot the ciwriuai
made has been consumed in the cities, aud tLo
consumption in dwellings has decreased con
stantly, while the factory consumption has
not greatly increased. Charcoal is a great
heat producer, and is extensively u.sed In
jewelry snops and a few other factories, but
it is not an economical fuel at any price.
One of the most prominent lumber men in the
country, speaking about the waste caused by
?harcoal burning, said the other day:
"Do you know how a rustic chnrxal
burner burns coal? Fie levels a place and
rtack? up the wood on end until it ruake9 a
pointed stack about eight feet high and ten
si twelve feet in diameter. This ho covers
with earth and sod until eveiy bit of the
wood is concealed. YVheD the wood in this
crude kiln is fired it must be carefully
watched night and day until the conversion
into charcoal is accomplished. Should it
break into a flame there would be nothing
left but ashes, so a map remain? on hand at
all times tc keep the combustion from being
too rapid and to mend the mound as breaks
appear in it. When it is all done the coal
burner gets a few bushels of charcoal for his
"Let us see what he wastes. It is known
that the manufacturers of creosote, acetic
acid, wood alcohol, mordant a id other chemi
cal products of wood can make a profit on
each of these products and have the char
coal free of cost. The wood is packed in a
tight iron retort and a fire built under the
retort. The temperature is raised to 500 or
GOO degs., and the liquid portions of tho wood
are converted into vapor, which passw
through an iron or copper worm encased in a
jacket of cold water. The vapor thus con
denses into various products, which are after
"Georgia pine will yield by distillation
wood gas, a small amount of wood naphtha, a
large amount of pjToligneous acid (wood
vinegar), a large amount of wood creosote
oil, a small amount of tar aud a great quan
tity of charcoal. Nine cords of wood will
give ICS barrels of charcoal, fourteen barrels
of creosote oil, ten barrels of acid and a few
gallons of naphtha and bitumen. The pyro
I igneous acid alone will pay all of the ex
penses of the labor, and the creosote oil will
more than pay for tho wood and fuel. No
body but a country charcoal burner will
assert that the coal is not as good as that
produced in the wasteful way he has been
brought up to do it."
It is believed that charcoal burning will
ceaso to be an industry anywhere in this
country within a few years. Certain it is
that wide awake timber men are doing all
they can to root out tho industry in order to
save the timber land for more valuablo and
useful purposes. New York Mail and Ex
press. Picture of Robert Louis Stevenson.
Robert Loujs Stevenson, the author, really
does look like the watermelon portrait of him
in one of the magazines. He sat in a Long
Branch car, the other day, on his way from
Manasquan to New York. He has a long,
narrow face, and wears bis long brown hair
parted in the middle aud combed back. It
is just such course, straight hair as Gen.
Roger A. Pryor's, but much lighter in color.
Stevenson sat in a forward corner of the car
with bis hat off aud the cape of his coat up
behind his head like a monk's cowL His black
velvet coat and vest showed plainly, and
over his legs he wore a black and white
checked 6hawL His Byron io collar was soft
and untidy, and his shirt was unlaundred,
but his clothes were scrupulously clean. Ou
the long, thin white fingers of his left hand
he wore two rings, and he kept these fingers
busy constantly pulling his drooping blonde
mustache. His face is slightly freckled and
a little hollow at the cheeks, but it has a
good bit of Scotch color in it.
Mr. Stevenson presented such an odd figure
that all in the ear stared at him, particularly
when a rumor of who he was ran among the
people. But he seemed unconscious of the
interest he aroused. He was reading a book,
and every now and then he would fix a sen
tence in his mind, close the book on one
linger, look at the ceiling and rouse. When
a sentence pleased him he smiled at it, and
then read it again. At the Jersey City depot
he threw off his shawl and stood up, and then
the figure he cut was extraordinary, for his
.-at proved to be merely a large caps, with
a small one above it, and under both came
his extra long legs, or, rather, his long laven
der trousers, for they appeared to have no
legs within them.
Mrs. Stevenson was with him, but sat apart
studying the scenery. Her husband looked
at her frequently with a whimsical smile, and
found great fun in laughing at her behind
his book when a dude of tremendous style
look the seat beside her. New York Sun.
ii.tiaueo Covered oj a it anz,
Mr. Edward Scott, in his "IJancUig and
Dancers," make? the 'following estimate of
the distance actually waltzed over in an even
ing by a belle of the ball room: "Do you,
'my fair and fragile reader,' think you wou'(
go six times around a moderate sized bad
room, say, making a circuit of eighty yerd$
during a waltz) X.C., hi least, even allowing
for rest. That, then, is 4S0 yards, if you
went ia a straight line. But you are turn
ing nearly all tho time, say on an average,
once in each yard of onward progress, and
tho circumference of a circle is rather men)
than three time3 its diameter, which will
bring each waltz to over three-quarters of .a
mile, or, at least, fourteen miles for tho
eighteen waltzes." America,
