Vses of Old Shoes.
A n American who has been traveling
in I'uropo thustlescribes the industrial
uses of old boots and shoes which are
thrown out into the streets and into ash
pits: After being collected tliey are
ripped open, and tho leather is subjected
to a treatment which renders it a pliable
uia::s, from which a' kind pf arfistio
leat'icr is derived, ihis in appearance
retiubles tho pest leather or uoraova.
In the United States patterns are stanitied
on ' this, while in France it is used to
Puti-T trunks and boies. The old boots
and shoea are also treated In another
wav by which they aro converted into
new ones. The prisoners in Cen-
tn.l France are emploved in this
war. tho old shoes coming chiefly from
b I hi in. The? are taken io pieces 'as be"
fun-, the nails being all removed, and the
leather is soared in order to soften It.

RETIRING FROM BUSINESS.
A Custom Observed Forty Years Ago Not
The old world custom of retiring;
from business after a competency had
been secured, and which is yet ob
served abroad, was still honored in
tho observance here by our own busi
ness men not very long ago. When
a mercliant had accumulated $100,000,
more or less, ho was rich, and fre
quently sought relief from tho cares
and labors of active trade in retire
ment. Generally tho most trusted and
respected employes of the concern
became, upon easy terms, the succes
sors of the retiring members.
But men of active business seldom
retire now. and chiefly, it mav bo as
sumed, because it is no longer jmssible
iur any ono io acquire a connic-iency
In the old and, it seems to many, tho
better times, the habits of livintr were
simpler, and a comnetenev was :i d
terminable thing, which at present it
apiears not to be. Fifty, forty, thirty
ears ago tne man was accounted rich
who had amassed a clear S100.000. lie
could retire upon that at any time and
oe assured or an income, represented
by absolutely safe at (5 per cent, secur-
aics, or u,uuu a vear. winch enabled
him to live in generous comfort and
even luxury. A $100,000 now vieldsa
iierfectly safe income- of not more than
3,000 or $4,000 a year. Besides that,
u is tne almost universal ambition of
the man who has made a hundred
thousand to make a million and of that
one who lias made a million to mako
hve, ten or a hundred millions.
Thore is practically no limit to in
dividual fortunes in these times, and
until tho man of business who has the
least has made the effort lo acquire as
much as he who has the most the
question of retirement is not con-
siuereu. the custom of retirmn-
from active pursuits with tho ac
quirement, oi a competency was
good not only for the mercliant, it
was good for his shrewd, faithful, fru-
Kui, umoiitous emnioves. who suc
I . ' .
ceeded to his business and thus se
cured a chance of winninir fortune.
which chance is now denied them.
lhe trouble is that in these davs no
one Knows when he has enough, and
i ... .
consequently no one feels that he can
step aside and give opportunity of
tortune to the young men about him
who aro struggling for place. Not

Chinese In America.
The outbreak in Portland shows that
in other places besides 3an Francisco
there exists between gangs of 'ruffians
a never puding 'contest for supremacy
over' the Chinese population. The
power of tho highbinder is the only
one which the average Chinaman
understands and fears, and his conduct
is regulated by it to a greater extent
than by the laws of the country in
which ho lives. In whatever city tnehc
is round, ft coasiderable number of
Chinamen, there the Chinese high
binder will find material for his call
ing, and there he will exist, exercisinp1
an influence which extends even io the
white employers of Chinese labor.
In San Francisco the number of
these lawless Chinamen is very large
and they are tho virtual rulers of Cni-
natowii. Were tio Mongolian popu
lation larger tho' gangs of murderers
would bo trreater. and the subieetio'u
of the' coolie would, be n;pre cpiiiplei
The vfll being of ihc Chinaman now
in this country, us well as of the white
iMojle among whom he lives, has been
subserved by the exclusion net. Those
Chinamen aro most prosperous and
huiiry who have fewest cf their own
raco surrounding tliem. They jt'ro
benefited by isolation from their Mon
golian brothers. Tho greater the num
ber of Chinese that congregate to
gether Ino lower their condition, the
n Hire degraded their IiuImLs. the more
abject their slavery nii-i the greater
tho danger to which they expose the
country. Tho total cessation of Chi

One of the mos t interesting lakes or

It is a strange thing to see those waves,
not dancing along and sparkling in tho

measured melancholy, and sending tQ
the ear, as they break languidly upon

no doubt, owing to tho great heaviness
