fassing on to t he gun factoi'3' proper, which
s tho great center of attraction just now to
-.11 visitors, whether military or civilian, we
Intl ourselves surrounded by huo masses of
lUnvin metal in process of forging, welding
and shrinking, or undergoing a curious
process of disemboweling by means of a pow
irfully constructed borer. Gangs of work
men were busily engaged in heating, sawing
antl planing sections of guns of all sizes and
Bhapes, which are intended for the navy, tho
field as occasion miy require, and harbor
and home defense. The great object in view
bero at tbe present time is to provide as soon
as possible for tho needs of tho coaling sta
tions, upon tho security of which so much
would depend in ti rue of war. The guns are
shipped oi from the arsenal pier as they are
turned out, but tha work of constructing a
Woolwich infant"' L by no means as expe
ditious as could bo desiretL This new form
of weapon is not made out of one solid cast
ing, but of several distinct hoops or rings of
solid and carefully prepared 6tcel. The base
of the gun is upended, antl one ring after an
other is fitted upon it while the metal is in a
red hot state, each hoop slightly overlapping
the other antl shrinking as it cools. Tho
careful preparation of the metal and the con
struct ion of the splendid machinery for the
adjustment of the rings of which the gun is
built up arc matters about which the arsenal
authorities are wisely reticent. In fact, nest
to no information is given in these depart
ments to visitors, and it is scarcely to bo ex
pected in these days of international compe
tition for the iosses-;ioii ot the be-t weapon
which can be made at any cost.
WOOLWICH'S FAMOCS 'INFANTS."

articular class 01 gun is made nowhere else,
and, in fact, is a local production altogether
of the bri.ins and biuows of the arsenal hands

process connected with its manufacture
being a foreman in the works. In the weld

which w iil carry a bail of a ton weight over
a distance of seven and a half miles, tho lar

For bridesmaids' hats there is a sjecially
pretty iiouveaiito in the form of an open
work Tuscan straw semi-transparent' hat,
almost resembling Irish crochet of a palo bis

trimmed with wide moire riblioii of the samo
delicate tint. A pretly bonnet for thesamo
piifMiso is of drawn lisse, in any palo color,
with tulle lightly drawn over and up tho
front, where it rises up in conjunction with
a few loops of ribbon nnd a feathery osprey.
Tho edge of tho bonnet is of bead work on
wire, and l!io tulle is carried over this in
front. The strings are of ribbon. In pale
pink, with bronze 1mh1s, or iu white, with
gold or silver, tho effect is particularly good.
There is a pretty bonnet in drawn black

In Honduras every lady has her own sad
dle mule. Sho rides with grace and ease
acquired by constant practice . from early
childhood. She sits on the right sido of tha
mule the Central American side saddle be
ing constructed the opposite to those used in
the United States. The right foot is placed
in the stirrup and a tiny but effective silver
spur is worn on tho heel. The right hand
holds tho bridle and tho left usually carries
a sun umbrella. A whip is seldom needed
with the spur, although a few ladies who
have been in New York have adopted the
whip and discarded tho umbrella. A wide
brimmed hat is indispensable, and the riding
habit is of gray linen or some small check

DESTRUCTIVE TO HEALTH.
Various Inlii t rial l'ursiiilt M'tiicli Injure
the Health of AVorkiiit Women.
In considering the effects of industrial lifn
upon the health of women, it would seem, at
iirst glance, a 1 though they would li more
advautagi ou-i than those which result from
able of le - ure, or of professional labor,
but I fear that facts w ill hardly lxar out
such a co: elision. In the first place we can
not exelu ,tJ from the grand aggregation of
such pir .siiit.s thoso employments which are
of th. inselvea dangerous t.f character and
necessarily more or less tlest rueti ve such as
bleachers ami straw hat manufacturers,
where powerful acids are used and liiines iu
haled. Women are quite extensively cm
ployed in these industries, and suffer keenly
from irritation t.f the bronchial mucous
membrane; later from lung diseases, which
are destined to become fatal. Largo num
bers of women (and children as well) are era
ployed iu tobacco manufactories and suiTer
much from the absorption of nicotine, a dan
gerous poison when continuously inhaled.
Women suffer keenly from the ( fleets of
mercury, lead and phosphorous materials us. d
in the manufacture of many articles wit h
which they have t d... 1., .!... i.a.ich lac
tones, w here women and children are largely
employed, the danger is said to bo somewhat
lessened recently through tho substitution of
red for white phosphorus, Women who
work w here lend i employed suffer more pro
portionately than men, in that their ubsor'i
live powers are greater, anil their powers, ot
resistance less, than thoso of men. Artificial
ilower workers ar much affected ley arseni
cal and other poisonous coloring materials,
and come to be affected by a species of pa
ralysis. If work is continued after tho early
symptoms liecome pronounced, there is little
hope of recovery. Makers of feather decora
tions liecome very seriously affected, the eyti
weaken, more or less general weakness jre
vails.and the lnn.:fl. v,.jon seriously affected.
Alo"t 'luce years is the full extent that this
class Of Workers can follow their calling, be
cause of the inhalation of a peculiar dust
which handling sets free, and from absoi p
tion of the poisor.vej materials Used in curl

saleswoman and tho shop girl? We all re
alize, to the full, the effect upon health
through standing behind the counter. It is
needless to dilate upon it. And the shop
girl? Wo scarcely need inquire. Long hours
of unhealthful employment in uuhealthful
localities, uncomfortable and uncongenial
hours, all tell upon her physically and men
tally. Exposures, unsuitable food, insuf
ficient and unhealthful dressing and a gen

the preservation of health are, we must re

the life of this class of workers. Anna V).

A I loatiug Saw Mill.
One of tho greatest novelties of a practical
character which ingenuity has devised is
thus described by a Florida exchange:
J. Li. Maull & Hon have their mammoth
floating saw mill anchored off the banks of
Burton & Harrison's hammock. This struct
ure is a marvelous piece of mechanical in
fenuity, and was built by J. XV. Maull and
Edward N. Maull. It is "iSO by 40 feet, and
stand about five feet out of the water, draw
ing only about seventeen inches. It is solidly
built, and according to the judgment of Mr.
Carl, an old time ship builder, is capable of
enduring tho severe strains of even the
waves of the ocean. The operation of all the
machinery does not seem to move the vessel
any more than if it was on the land. It has
fo far proved more of a success than its pro
jector anticipated. It is equipped with a
forty horse power boiler and engine, with tho
latest improvements iu saws and carriages. A
planer, head box and shingle saws are all on
dock and connected by shafting concealed
under deck, so that the main deck is free
from machines and available for the piling
up of immense quantities of lumber. Ia ono
corner of the vessel is tho cook house, where
the hands board, while on the hurricane deck
are the cabin of tho proprietors and work
men. They are now so situated as to have
command of an unlimited supply of tho
largest and finest timber, and from points
heretofore practically inaccessible. A saw
mill capable of moving up and down stream
seeking a supply of logs, and thus bringing
tho mill to the product instead of vi-jo versa,
may offer very valuable advantages, espe
cially in the south.

The beauty of life is in growing. The hap
piness of life is in striving. How many
women in the world are there who have only
been made beautiful by suffering! How
mauy hearts have only grown tender from
having ached very hard. It is what wo see
of life and what we know and what we feel
and what we endure and suffer that makes
us beautiful. It is wanting things and hav
ing to do without them that makes us gentle
over the needs of others. Tho beautiful
women in this world are the all but divina
Marj-s and Marthas who have known what
it was to sit all night alono with grief;
who have broken their hearts over litfls woea
that others could not knew nor understand;
who have gone alono and in the dark, each
into her own Ucthsemane, and there silent
long hours in voiceless travail. Catharino

The present year bids fair to be a dis
astrous one from tornadoes and wind
storms. This is fore-shadowed by the
number of storms we haye already had
the most destructive one so far this year
having occurred at Mt. Vernon, 111.,
w here a large number of buildings were
destroved or damaged. The exemption
from tornadoes last year renders their oe
eutmicc more probable in lsjS.
