OUR TIN PLATE MAKERS.
No set of men have ever been
more slandered and harassed than
the Americans who have gone to
work to develop an American tin
plate industry. Their motives are
constantly maligned and their ac
tions are continually misrepresent
ed. It is rather remarkable, under
the circumstances, that an3r pro
gress should be made in the estab-
lishment of a business which has
been so stamped with odium by
those who do not favor its growth
on American soil. I3ut in spite of
sneers, jeers and willful misrepre
sentation the investment of capital
in tin-plate machinery seems to go
on steadilj'. The quantity of tin
plate here last year was small as
compared with the volume of busi
ness done, but a good start was
made whichwill be actively followed
ill this year.
The work now under construction
will be making themselves felt in
the trade from month to month and
before summer is on lis it will be
seen that the industry is at last
fairly established. The experiments
now being conducted y some of
the domestic manufacturers with a
view to the avoidance of much of
the hand labor hitherto employed
are at last being crowned with suc
cess, and it looks as though lSitf
would be in more tnan one respect
a notable year for the American
tin-plate trade. The Iron Age.
The German government has
lately caused models of the best
equipped postal cars that can be
produced in all countries in which
that kind of service is in use. to be
made for exhibition in the German
museum and for the consideration
of the postal authorities of the Em
pire. . The models of the pottel
cars used in the United States were
made by the Chicago Milwaukee &
St. Paul rairoad, at their whops in
St. Paul, and are beautiful speci
mens of imitative skill. They are
exactly one-sixth the size of the rejj
ular cars in length uv one an one
half in width and complete in every
detail. The postoftice department
acted as a representatire of the Ger
man government in this matter,
two oflicials of the railway service
having inspected the models.

Seeatok Teller frankly confess
es that the passage of the free coin
age law '-would add at least $8,000,
000 per year to the value of Colora
do's output of silver;" but he does
not explain why he favors 6uch a
bounty to the silver producers alone
when those of his constituents who
raise grain are just as much enti
tled to help of the same kind.
The policy of tree silver coinage
prevails in Mexico, and the result
is that gold, is employed oqly in
foreign commerce, and the domes
tic business of the country is all
tarnsacted with a depreciated cur
rency. With such an example so
near home, the Unted States will

The Art of Telephonic Conversation.
"It is ..i singular fact," said Manager
John F. Casey of the Bell Telephone
Company's Exchange, "that people had
to be educated to use a telephone
properly. Not one person in ten goes
at it . correctly. Some people think
they have to scream and bawl. Others
go to the other extreme and drop their
voices almost to a whisper. Some
stand too far from the transmitter.and
others speak too rapidly or indistinc t
ly. Then they get mad and blame the
girls or the telephones. In nine eases
out of ten the fault lies with the person
"What is the best way of talking
through a 'phone?" asked the reporter.
"Why, just in an ordinary conversa
tional tonQteas if you were speaking to
somebody three or four feet from you.
Telephones are carefully constructed
anA adjusted for that manner of speak
ing and for no other. 1 can talk from
Washington city to Portland, Me., in
that way and make myself plainly
heard. The best position is to stand
with the mouth about three inches
from the transmitter. Most people
stand further back, but it is better to
stand even nearer. It is almost im
possible to get too near the instrument,
provided a distinct conversational tone
is maintained. There are forty-two
girls at that switchboard. Watch
them a moment."
The girls were as busy as hello girls
always are, forty-two of them constant
ly responding to questions or, asking
them. Yet the room was comparative
ly quiet and conversation could be
easily carried on,
"The secret," ' continued the man
ager, "is that they talk distinctly, and
you see most of them put their noses
against the instruments when they
speak. They don't have any trouble,
and nobody else would if he would
adopt similar methods." St. Louis

Thoughts on Things.
This is not a fable, but the record of
a few reflections prompted by the ex
ercises in English composition of two
deserving school children. Here is
one of them:
"The ostrich is a large and beautiful
bird. People ride on them when they
are going a long way, and once I saw
a picture of a boy on a ostriches back
they have very large wings. ; The
prince of Wales has got a ' ostriches
feather in his hat. The ostrich is a
large bird and the humming bird is as
well but the ostrich is the largest of
them. The ostrich is found in Man
chester and they live on sand and
make their nests on it and lay their
eggs on it."
Ft is clear that the author of this
essay is a person not only of much in
formation, but also of a philosophical
Essay on a Parrot: "A parrot is a
bird that reads a thing through and
never thinks about it, and it is a very
nice bird, and some of us do as well as
Imrrots. I think we all ought to learn,
jecause that is what we are sent to
school for. And when we read a thing
we should not half read it over, like a
parrot, when a parrot reads it over
they don't think of what they are
reading. Hut we should think aliout
a wonl before we read another, and
not do like a parrot does at all. There
is a great many who act like a parrot
in some schools round this country."

"When I came to thi country," said
a merchant recently to a Boston Herald
reporter, "I was a lad fresh from old
Ireland. My lirst home was with
friends in Cambridge. In one of my
walks, before I had been here a week,
I came across a queer, old fashioned
house that interested me immensely.
I described it to my friends, and
learned that it was the home of the
poet Longfellow. That increased my
The next day I went again to the
queer house and stood gawkily looking
at it and at an old gentleman sitting
in the yard. I stared so long that the
old gentleman noticed it, ana, coming
up to the fence, asked me what I was
looking at. I told hini that I wanted
to see the man who lived there because
I had read his works in the schools of
Theold gentleman asked me what
I knew about Longfellow's writing and
