In regard to the complaints about thor
not being enough cement used in prc
portion to the amount of sand , they sa
that their contract with the city calls fr
three parts sand and ono part cement
instead of ono-third cement as man

stones they have boon doing bettor tha
the contract calls for , by using comer

not only by using gravel , in place o
poor sand , but by using more cemer
than was demanded.

Wheu I was a little boy 1 was sent 01
every day with my brother and otlu
little boys to gather leaves an
twigs. The best were those of tl :
fir , but wo took everything. We'
build big bonfires in dry weather , andtl
moment the ashes and embers were col
we'd thow thc'm ' into bins under lo
sheds. Below these sheds were whi
you'd call Icaoli tubs. Some of thes
were old barrels unwed in half ; semi
and they belonged 'to ' the poorer folk
were heavy willow .baskets. Ono I n
member was square , built out of brick
with a door In the side. Wo used to fi
the tubs with ashes and pour as muc
water on them as they'd hold. Wheu
ran through It would run Into a sma
bucket. This was what used to be calle
lyo. It was too weak to sell or to use t
make soap , and so we'd boll it dowi
Sometimes we'd dell It when it was boilc
down very strong , but generally we'd h
It boll till It was dry. What was left wr
good potash , and that we'd sell to a ric
man in the village , who'd send loads <
it away to foreign countries. If the po
ash was gray we got a jrood price for i
but if It was red or brown wo got lei
money and also got a good threshln
from our parents.
"Down the road was my father
cousin , who was the best soup maker i
the barony. Ho made n soft soap ( roi
our potash and hard soap from potas
and common rait. Ho had a prett
daughter she's my wife now , and who
she was fifteen she was as good a sea
boiler as her father. I was about sevec
teen when times began lo grow quit
hard. The village merchant didn't bu
as much potash or soap , and what he di
buy he paid less for. And then the me
who'd start out in the spring with
wagon to peddle the same wares foun

thought that it came from the wars thr
were going on and that good old price
woula come back before long. When
got to be twenty I was my wife's beat
and the old folks agreed that wo shonl
marry two years after and keep up tli
family trades in the old places. Wei
we were married , but not there , an

"You see it came about like this. I wen
down to the village ono day with a loa
of potash and soap , and called as usui
on the merchant. For the first time h
refused to buy the latter , and offered e
small a price for the former that I bcga
to laugh. But when he took out of a bo

Boston Bojrs and Girl * .
Trades Fibre and Fabric : There are
good many young ladies employed i
Boston , particularly in dry goods stdrei
who have graduated from school , man
of whom , have studied Greek and Lath
who are working for $3 per week.V
cannot see that the employers are t
blame , in any sense , for as soon as on
leaves , there are a good many to tak
her place. This reminds us that Bosto
boy graduates , from good Boston fami
lies , who have been well brought up , we
educated , and well trained , are now , i
this writing , serving their first year , bet
in dry goods commission , leather , woo
and the paper business for $2 per wecl
and this includes some of what might b
called menial labor. This low price is c
course brought about by the supply c
Buoh boys being more than adequate t
fill the positions that are made vacant
There is something radically wrong aboi
this system , for we all know that unde
the old apprentice system , all boys an
girls received their board and clothes an
often an annual stipend in addition. Bi :
hero arc bright Boston girls and boy
who do not even earn their foodlet alon
their clothes and other expenses ! It is
subject which earnest , honest rcformci
should look into , and find out.if possibli
the remedy. While this state of things 1
in existence in Boston , wo find , by th
Evening Sun , that Sam Jones asks th
revival committee of Cincinnati , $300 fo
five days' and nights' preaching , that it
for what is known as preaching by tues
who care to hear Sam Jones. Itisdoub
ful if there is a girl or boy , filling th
above positions , at f2 per week , wno i
not infinitely superior to Sam Jones a
citizens of the United states , and it is
very Important question why such a stat
of things is permitted to exist in this or
lightened.ago in the city of lioston.
