dillideut youth, doesn't know how to
get out. of it. Phil Inn a sweetheart,
and at Christmas he received from her
fan hands au elegantly embroidered
hat-band-- t!:o work of the iolf-same fair
hands. No knight of old was ever
prouder of his Ltdv's colors than was
Phil of hi hat-baud.
It will bo remembered that, after as
sisting all the other operative out upon

room an 1 brought out armful after arm
ful of shawls, overcoats, hats etc., and
threw them out of the wiudow. After
he had saved tho garments of, all the

Consul Qu'n. writ.u ro' the trade of
Japan, mentions that a considerable in
crease has lately taken place in Ihe
export of fea weed, and gives iu his
last report the following dis r pCon of
the method in which cut sea-weed is
prepared tor the market. For making
the fne-t cut sea-weed, the bet long
se.i-we.d is used, th newer the bett-T,
in account o tho color. After the
bundles ar opened, th y are pic'cd,
nnd as much sand as poss'ble sha' eu
out; the se'ected weed is then p'ae-d in
large i o lors. and is boiled for an hour
or more, uut 1 the proper co or is ob
tain : ', whic 1 should-be quite tin form
anil of a good e'ear green. After b 1 1
ing. the sea weed is hung up tin poles in
the air to partially dry it. a tor which it
is again care til' "sorted, and all ra.re.ed
pieces and those of a pale whit s!i
c dor are rejected, the sclcctc I weed is
then handed ocr to a number of wo
men, v. ho open it out and roll it into fiat
co Is of a'.out ton pound i each. As
soon as these coils have remained long
enough t' fatten the sea-weed, they are
unc died, ami the pieces of weed are
laid o. t on the top o th-: other n a
board a 1 ttle over 'o r 'eet long, to the
depth of eight to ten inches; they are
th n cut in'o 'oir le igths of tti.rtec 1
incho? each, and the-e pieces ar tied
into b indies ready or the workra n to
lay in the press s, wh'ch are abo t six
feet w'dc, thiit-en inches ihcp (th
length o the pice? of s a-ue d, and
six ft, t high. At the bottom a row of
wooden slats, about two inches and a
halt broad, half an inch thick and
t .irtecn n h s long, are placed cd e
ways, and up n bee the weed is laid
care u ly pitu-u by piece in the frame,
th: sdes of" whih are k- t
in to t oa by a riMM streic

at the back,

w tfch is ra scd
proceeds, keeps the
even. When the
frame is lull about two tons going in
to one press a similar lot ot" siats to
those at the bottom are pla cd on the
top of the sea-weed, and the whole is
pressed as tight as j ossiblc, by means
of a rough ca stan. to get rid of all un
necessary moisture, and to render tho
mass firm enough or cutting. The
frame is then laid down fat; and one of
the side planks 1 elng removed, the
compressed weed is plane 1 with an or
dinary car enter's plane, set so as to
cut it to the re uircd thickuess about
one-tweutieth of an inch along the
edges and with the grain. The object
of ihe slats is to enable tho workman to
1 lane the edges, and they are remo cd
one by one as he progresses with his
work." Each man tan plane, on an
average, one hundred and se cnty
I ounds of sea weod per day- Alter
planing, the cut sea-weed is taken out
of doors ana shaken out to dry on mats;
under favorable cir umstan es. one day
is suflicient for this operation, but it
frequently happens that as many
as thrc5 days are required before
it is dry enough to pack away. After
tho final d ying. the weed is "ready for
the market, nd is pa ked away in
boxes conta'ning about sixty six pounds
eacn. inc re eetea ends o: tae nrst
dass sea-weed are used up, together
with ordinary long sea-weed of an in
ferior quality, to make cut sea-weed of
a lower class. While undergoing the
various processes, the material loses
twenty per cent, in we'ght, and that
fact, joined to the price of the labor ex
peaded in its maau'actare. bring the
cost to more thaa doable the a erage of

Investigation has developed that the
fascinating game of draw poker was in
vented somewhere about 1S1G or 1847

perhaps, doing more harm in a quiet
and innocent way than dealing in
futures or any other species of gaining.
