The Secret a Glaze That Permeate * the
The peachblow porcelain is of
Chinese manufacture , and is about
300 years old. It is not , as is some
times supposed , the designation of a
particular shade of color , but a rare
and peculiar glaze , which not merely
coTers the surface of the vessel , but
penetrates the entire texture of the
article , so that if the same be broken
the internal structure is identical with
that of the surface. The method by
which this result is reached is un
known , and much money has been ex
pended in vain to discover it The
ware is , in a sense , therefore , the re
sult of a happy accident.
Specimens of it are rare in China
to-day , where it is prized as highty as
anywhere else. Most of that of which
there is definite knowledge was taken
from China by the Dutch in the days
when they monopolized the trade
with that country , and from Holland
has made its way over Europe. The
specimens in this country have al
most all of them come either from
Holland direct , or by way of France ,
whither pieces > of it were-early carried
by the Dutch , arousing unusual inter
est among the French potters.
. $50,000,000 IN MATCHES.
Value of the Yearly Output of European
The oldest and it is said the largest
match manufactory in the world is in
Sweden. Matches were made there
long before the old , roughly trimmed
splinter of wood tipped with sulphur
was discarded with the tinder boxes ,
for which they were used. In twenty-
five years the export trade 'of Sweden
in modern matches increased 1,000-
000,000 boxes a year.
Some of the machines for making
matches which we use in these days
make 200 revolutions a minute each
and turn out about 2,500,000 matches
daily. Rather more than five matches
per head for the whole population are
used daily in the United States.
Strange to say , the quality of these
Swedish matches , in many cases , is so
bad that the state intends to resume
the manufacture , and computes that
the profits will produce a revenue of
Altogether there are in Europe about
50,000 factories , and they yearly pro
duce matches valued at $30,0000,000.
Binding Religious Persons.
The practice of binding religious
persons still exists in India , as is evi
denced by the following from the
Alllahabad , India , Pioneer. The inci
dent occurred recently at Meerut : ' 'A
fakir , wearing nearly five maunds (400 (
pounds ) of iron chains and bands on
him , recently left the cantonment sta
tion. The railway authorities de
clined to allow him to travel as a pas
senger , but sent him as goods by
weight , in spite of his argument that
native women were never charged for
their anklets and bangles. The iron
absorbed the heat so much that the
man had to be incessantly sprinkled
with water. He is an old man and
nearly died at the station. "
An Appropriate Prayer.
A reverend gentleman tells this
story of a little boy : The boy was
tired from a hard day's play , and
when he retired he was too sleepy to
say his goodnight prayer. His mother
bried in vain to have him say it , and
anally sent the father in. He found
the boy just sinking into a tired sleep ,
and demanded that he should get up
and say his prayer. The little fellow
arose wearily , sank down upon his
mees by the bedside and began : " 0 ,
dear Lord ! please make papa say his
prayers when he's as tired as I am.
The quantity of heat wasted by slag
las suggested projects for utilizing it
n raising steam , but nothing practical
has been obtained until recently. At
a mine in New South Wales the molten
slag is run into the bottoms of iron
chambers that can withstand internal
steam pressure , and jets of water are
'orced on the slag. In a short time
ihe chambers are filled with steam that
can be utilized in other parts of the

Princely Italian Marriages.
When a marriage takes place in
Italy in a princely family the bride
and groom , after the religious cere-
mbny , present themselves to the pope
to receive his benediction. Then the
young couple , in wedding costume
