Sometlrinff About Pins.
The earliest naention which I remem
berof pins is in the book of Isaiah. The
prophet is reproving the Jewish women
for wearing so much fine apparel when
i they ought to have been mourning. In
the-J verseof theSJ chapter bespeaks
of "the changeable suits of apparel, and
the mantles, and the wimples, and the
crisping pins." And this was about
two thousand, six hundred years ago.
The Iloman ladies, too, used to wear
pins in their hair, and they were not
unknown even among our AnghSaxon
ancestors. Then, however, they were
very rare, and considered quite a luxury,
and only used by the highest families
in the land.
The pin that I have referred to above
are hairpins, and it is not until the
reign of Kichard III, that pins of the
present shape are heard of, and these
were made of boxwood, bone or silver,
and were much larger than those now
in use. -
The reign of Henry VIII. may be
regarded as the era when the ordinary
brass pins were first manufactured in
any quantity. That they began to attract
attention then, is apparent from the
-fact that a law was passed that in future
none were to be sold but such as were
well pointed and had their heads firmly
put on. It was also mentioned in the
Act that the price charged should not
exceed 63. 80. per thousand, which was
a very large sum, considering how much
more money was then worth than it is
at the present day.
Catherine Howard, wife of King
Henry VIIL, introduced to the English
the fashion of using pins; and so expen
sive an item were they considered, that
ladies were allowed a separata sum for
their purchase. This is the origin of
the term "pin-money."
The principal place for the manufac
ture of pins during many years was
Gloucester, England, which was able to
make at one time almost all the pins
that were required. Hut as the demand
for them increased year by year, the
trade spread by degrees to other towns.
Before the invention of machinery,
the best way of producing pins was to
divide the labor amongst ten people
four men, four women and two children
who could make ten pounds, or about
f5 thousand of average size in eight
hours. It has been estimated that about
thirty years ago there were about fifte n
million pin Manufactured daily in Eng
land, or in the course of a year four
billion, six hundred and nine' y-five mil
lion. Reckoning the average length of
a pin at one inch, the number made
daily, placed end to end, would reach
230 miles, or from London to Birming
ham and back; or those made in the
course of a year, placed in the ssme
manner, would reach nearly three times
round t: e world.
Now to give you an idea of the gigan
tic increjise in the demand for pins, I
may mention that the number made
daily at the present time is reckoned to
be at least 50,000, which in a year gives
a total of fifteen billion, six hundred and
fifty million, a quantity of which nei
ther you nor I can form the slightest
conception. And yet,now-a-days,tardly
a fourth the cumber of persons are em
ployed in their manufacture which you
would have found busily engaged in the
trade many years ago.
now can this be? you ask.
To answer you satisfactorily, I should
have to take you to see one of the clev
erest machines ever invented, wh'ch
can turnout 300 perfect pins every min
ute, while it takes only one man and a
byy or two to attend to ten or twelve of
" these busy little instruments.
And now let us see how pins are
made. The brass of which they consist
is first formed into wire, and in order
to make it the right size it is drawn
through several holes in a steel block,
each hole it passes through being small
Jer than the previou3 one, till at length
the wire becomes thin enough to cut up
into pins. It is then wound round large
rollers, made up into bundles and de
tivered to the pin-makers. But what a
change we see now in the factory from
what used to be! One little machine
alone does more than double the work
which ten persons used to do in days of
yore. This machine first straightens
the wire, a hairmer then strikes the top
part two or three times, forming a head ;
immediately after a knife, cuts off the
- proper length, and the pin drops down
into a kind of trough large enough to
let the body fall through, but too nar
row for the head to escape. As the pin
lies in this position, revolving files
sharoen the point: and when it falls
into the pan made for its reception, it is
far more perfectly formed than the most
skillful workman in the world could
have made it before the invention of
In the time of our grandfathers, the
heads of the pins, which were formed
of a separate coil of wire, never could
m, be persuaded to keep long in their prop
er position, but would either come off
altogether or move gradually down to
wards the point But I am pretty sure
you have not had many play you such
tricks, and for the very gocd reason that

and other substances, for about two
hours ana a half, then sifted, and dried,
and separated from one another. After
this they are made up into packets, or
stuck in rows on paper, ready for sale
Eoyal Family Affklrs.
The Prince of Wales' two sons have
recently been sitting, or rather standing
to one of our best known sculptors.
The Queen, their grandmother, having
ordered from him a statuette of each.
Of course she has required them to be
portrayed as though dressed in High
land costumes, since she prefers that to
all other styles ; and the sculptor, Wil
liamson, has judiciously tried both to
preserve a good likeness of the lads and
at the same time to make pleasant and
refined portraits of them. It is there
fore, almost unnecessary to remark
that he has had to idealize considerable
by way of softening down some of the
well-known heaviness of the Guelphic
cast of countenance. He tells a friend
of mine that the Royal boys are good
natured enough about their liknesses,
and that the elder of them, the other
day, while posing, said : "I know that
I am ugly and that you can not help
making me so. Do you know who I
am like, and from whom I get my large
mouth? I am like my Aunt Thyra.'
TJiia aunt and his motherly sister, the
youngest and only unmarried daughter
of the King of Denmark, one of the
many Princesses whom report long ago
picked out as the probable bride for the
Prince Imperial at the time of the Bo
napartist dynasty seemed to have
taken firm root in France. As it is
however, the Princess remains single.
With one sister destined to become
Queen of the empire on which the sun
never seta, and the othbr fated and
perhaps shortly to be Empress of all
the Rusias, the fair Thyra probably has
not cared to descend to the petty and
penniless German Princes, who seem to
bo so bountifully provided by nature
and the Almanach de Gotha to espouse
all they can of the marriageable Prin
cesses of Europe. And the empire in
in France having gone to dust and
ashes, and the King of Spain being too
orthodox a son of the Church to marry
a heretic, there is positively no one else
unless it be Rothschild worth look
The other day, while the Queen as
usual in Scotland was dining at the
table of one of her great North British
nobles, a dreadful, dreadful breach of
etiquette occurred. Her Majesty called
for a glass of water. Accordingly, u
man-servant came forward and present
ed to her a silver salver with a glass of
water on it; but Victoria immediately
assumed a stern expression and fore
bore to put out her hand for it. It ap
pears that state etiquette on such an
occasion demands that the man-servant
should present the silver salver to a
ladv of honor, and that the lady of hon
or should then carry it to the Queen.
The miBtake was rectineu, uioiu6no
were offered and accepted, and let us
hope that by the time the water reached
her thirsty Majesty, it tasted all right.

Chronicle's London Letter.
A famous watch-maker of Paris, in
fatuated for a long time with the chi
mera of perpetual motion, became vio
lently insane from the overwhelming
terror which the storms of the revolu
tion excited. The derangement of his
reason was marked with a singular trait.
He was persuaded that he had lost his
head on the scaffold, and that it was put
in a heap with those of many other
victims, but that the judges, by a
rather too late retraction of their cruel
decree, bad ordered their heads to be
resumed, and to be joined to their
respective bodies. He, however, got an
ilea that, by a carious kind of mistake,
he had one of the heads of his miserable
companions placed upon his shoulders.
He was admitted into the Bicetre (mad
house), where he was almost constantly
complaining of his misfortune, and was
lamenting the fine teeth which he had
exchanged for an indifferent set. In a
little while his old hopes of discovering
perpetual motion returned, and he was
rather encouraged in his endeavors to-
effect his object. When he conceived
that he had accomplished it, and was in
anecstacy of joy, this sudden confusion
of a failure removed his inclination to
even resume the subject. He was still,
however, possessed with the idea that
his head was not his own ; but from this
notion he was diverted by the repartee
made to him when he happened to be
defending the possibility of the miracle
of St. Denis, who, it is said, was in the
habit of walking with his head between
his hand?, and in that position continu
ally kissing it.
"What a fool you are to believe such a
story he was answered, with a burst of
laughter, "How could St Denis kiss his
head; was it with his heels?"
This unanswerable and unexpected
retort confounded the madman so mueh
that it prevented him from saying any
thing further on the subject. He soon
after resumed ousiness, and eventually
recovered his reason.
Mahmoud Damftd's Snltaaa.
Mahmoud Damad is still the strong
mas keeping the palaoe, and n there
teem, no protpeot of a itrongar than he
coming, it ii faintly charerfe
just now turned in desperation to 'a
stronger woman his wife.
The lady is a Sultana, sister by he
same father and mother to the Sultan,
and, by the laws of Turkey, a Sultana
baa peculiar privileges and rights, which
go far to make up for the wrongs of
the humbler and, from our ?oint of
view, much oppressed portion of her
sex. Her husband is, unlike other Turk
ish lords of the creation, not allowed
to possess any other woman feut her,
whether as wife, concubine, or slave.
He cannot enter her harem in his own
house, or, when he has entered, take a
seat in her presence without her per
mission. The discipline to which he Is
subjected is, in fact, so severe that even
should he find a pair of male slij p?rs
outside the harern door, he must forbear
the husband's right recognized in mobt
parte of the world, and immediately re
tire without any ill-judged inquiry into
their ownership or raison d'etre, it be
ing very properly assumed that a sul
tana is at asocial and moral attitude far
above all possibility of Indiscretion.
The lady in question is said to have a
character and temper which fully fit
her to exercise her privileges should the
proper occasion arise, and she is now
believed to resent the influence exer
cised over her brother by her husband.
The alleged cause of her resentment,
which is of recent origin, one cannot
give without violating the sacred thresh
old of the harem, but its existence is no
secret. It is spoken anout as if it were
a matter of state, and the gravest polit
ical calculations are based on the chance
of its duration. The sultan is known to
be greatly attached to his sister, and it
is, indeed, through her that Mahmoud
Damad gained ascendency at the pal
ace. There would, therefore, after all,
be nothing very surprising, however
quaint from an English point of view,
if he lost his power by the same means
through which he acquired it ; nor would
it by any means be the first time that a
question m the harem did for Turkey
what could not be done by the subtlest
counsellors or the weightiest considera
tions of state.
The Lost is Found.
In 1S00, John Cressout, resolved to
remove, with his wife and two children,
a boy and girl, from Ohio to Iowa. At
Chicago he stopped a few days to confer
with some land owners in reference to
the purchase of a farm in Iowa. One
day, while there, his little son Robert
wandered off down to the lake, where
his curiosity led him on board a steamer.
Without noticing his young passenger,
the captain started his steamer on her
journey across the lake. When far out
on the lake the lad became aware of his
situation, but too late. The captain,
thinking him only a vagabond, refused
to return, and in due time landed him
in Grand Haven. The boy and his re
lations lost all trace of each other, and
the parents finally gave up all nape of
ever finding their son. eo" j -i'cuocu
n .. ij , mm nvjuert Cressout finally
wandered out to Dubuque, where he
became a clerk in a hotel. One day he
took up a copy of the State Register in
which his eye caught the name of John
Cressout. He went to Polk County, and
at Des Moines, in the Recorder's office,
found the name of John Cressout re
corded in the book of deeds as the owner
of a farm in Washington township. On
Thanksgiving day he repaired to the
Cressout farm where a pleasant party
of friends and neighbors bad gathered
to partake of the hospitalities ef one of
the most substantial and thrifty farmers
of Polk County, ne lost no time in
seeking an interview with the host and
hostess, and in making himself known
as their son who was lost in Chicago
seventeen years ago. That was a day

Every one should try and better his
condition if he can. The poor man
should try to increase his means; the
sick man to improve his health ; the ig
norant man to acquire knowledge ; and
the foolish man to get understanding.
In such matters the great question is
whether the desired improvement is'
within our reach. To long for what we
cannot attain, or to grieve because it is
unattainable, is simply to play the part
of the child that cries for the moon.
Let us know ourselves and our position
L.et us know what we have and what
we want; and then, let us next inquire
whether what we want can be got by
striving for it If it cannot be got, let
U9 think of it no more, or endeavor to
compensate for the want in some other
way. A short man may wish to be tall,
but he cannot add an inch, any more
than a cubit to his stature. He may,
however, be a very worthy and respect
able man, for all that, if he conducts
himself with propriety and simplicity,
and does not, as short men sometimes
do, render his diminutive size more con
spicuous by conceit and affectation.
Telegraphing Without Wires.
Prof. Loomis, of Washington, who has
devoted his life to demonstrating the
practicability of hi3 theory of icrial tel
egraphing, seems to be on the eve of
success. His system is based on a cur
rent of electricity which he has demon
strated exists at different heights, and
which transmits communication be
tween two perpendicular wires reach,
ing into it, whatever the distance may
be. He has already sent messages in
this way for a distance of eleven miles,
using the Morse battery in connection
with one of his own invention. It seems
assured that aerial telegraphing by
means of rods on natural or artificial
eminences cau be successfully practiced
at all times, though its great value will
be in longdistance telegraphing, as from
one side of the ocean to the other. Prof.
Loomis is now making arrangements
for a series of experiments between
peaks of the Alps and the Kocky Moun
tains. If he succeeds, of course te'e
graphing between the old world and the
new will be cheapened a thousand fold,
and Prof. Loomis Is thoroughly con
vinced that, before many years, aubma-

'Where can we purchase Instruments that will
