As the reporter entered a haschaschin was received from the proprietor, his ration of the drug. It was the cheap kind shown by the druggist and was as large as a hickory nut.— New York Sun. The Kitchen of the Past. In very old times the kitchen was a rudely constructed affair. The Gauls and Germans built their kitchen near the house, never within it, just as in India to-day the kitchen is a separate build- ing, under charge of the butler. All old Norman castles included a round build- ing, completely roofed in, which was the kitchen, and which we find upon the same plan in all old monasteries. The form of this kitchen was at first merely that of a round mound, having no win- dows and being entirely dependent for light upon the wood fire\ but it had, even in the earliest times, chimneys or aper- tures for the escape of smoke, often as many as five or six. As time went on these kitchens grew in importance, and were often marvels of architecture fin- ished off with windows and doors, every possible facility being sought for letting in fresh air and sunshine. At first the fire was built in the corner of the room, but soon it became the central point, the ' How is hasheesh used? V \The same as opium.

In Gautemala one species of pine tree is grown with needles'fifteen inches long, and another that furnishes fat pine foi the candles of half the republic.

The manner in which the injury was received was carefully re- corded by the selectmen, so that the loss of the ear should not be prejudiced to the boy when he grew to man's estate. The introduction of the modern slang word *'dandy,\ as applied, half in admir- ation and half in derision, to a fop, dates from 1816.

At the Lexington avenue house a colored waiter answered the bell and ushered the caller into a small but neat reception room. The proprietor, a tell, slender and emaciated man, was the manager of an opium den some years ago. He led the way to the second story, where the windows were thoroughly closed and the daylight excluded. Six small colored lamps diffused a faint light through a thick smoke that filled the two gained some knowledge or refinement in cooking (and that is an open question), we have gained nothing in the situation or appointments of our kitchens. In country homes we have the old-fashioned chimney, the wide hearth, the annoyance of dirt and soot, to counterbalance the fresh air and sunshine which gain an en- trancepwhile in cities we have the ad- vantages of improved stoves, of self-act- ing boilers, of pantries and closets, of steam heat and pneumatic tubes, with the decided disadvantage of darkness and foul air.

The proprietor asked in what style the reporter would take the drug, and, on being appealed to, recommended the nargile. Bohemians in Literature. G. M. Grummond says in the St. Louis Magazine: Literature is rich with the work of Bohemians, some of whom are famous.. But it was not until literature became a profession that Bohemianism became a guild. Sir Richard Steele was a perfect specimen of the literary Bohemian. This turned out to be a simple modifi- Oliver Goldsmith was of the fair frater- •cation of the Turkish article. A hand- nity, but Samuel Johnson, Alexander some glass vase filled with water, a long light tube with an amber mouthpiece, and a brazier—a metalic cup of the size and shape of an egg —were furnished. In the interior of the brazier were two brass grates, and from the bottom ran a Pope and icy Joseph Addison, were de- cidedly not. They were literary, but had not the divine contempt ior the morrow that marks the Bohemian.

New York, Brooklyn and Jersey City consume in round numbers 9,000 beeves every week, beside great numbers of calves^ sfieep and hogs. The supply comes mostly from Illinois and Kentucky, Chicago being the distributing point in the cattle trade of the West. Few State cattle Ire slaughtered here, says the New York Tribune. These beeves will average in price from $75 to $100 per head, fine Christmas animals ranging from $100 to $150. They will weigh from 800 to 1,- 500 pounds gross, and will generally net from sixty-four to sixty-eight per cent, of then* live weight. A bullock is useful from the tips of his horns to the end of his tail. No part of him is wasted, but all is put to some use and given a commercial value. Most of the slaughtering is done along the East river, between Forty-third and Forty- seventh streets, and it is interesting to observe the i s of an animal from the ,time it reaches the slaughter-house until it is ready for the cook. In the locality named the week's killing amounts to 6,- 000 head, beside about 15,000 calves and sheep. The slaughtering is done by the Jewish method—all the slaughterers are Jews, who follow the business for life, and who\ perform their duties under a special license from the synagogue. No Jew can kill without a license. The old Mosaic law is carried out to the letter, its principles being the avoidance of tor- ture and the freeing the carcass of all blood. The method is as follows: The animal is driven into a small pen or en- closure, into which opens a door from the gallows or windlass. A rope from the gallows is dexterously fastened about the left hind leg, above the hock-joint, and passed in front of the right leg. A turn of the windlass tightens the rope and draws the animal backward into the open door, -^gradually raising its hind feet from the ground, until in its strug- coat cut away, small waistcoat, cravat I g\ es to get its right foot over Hie rope, and chitterlings immense, hat small, hair \ ' ' ' A ' \ j - t -- 1Jt frizzled and protruding.\ The old Britons wore, according to Meyrick, shoes made of raw cowhide, with the hair turned outwards, and com- ing up to the ankles. They much re- sembled the brog, which is still used in remote parts of Ireland. In Roman times the chiefs and nobles of Britain adopted, in addition to the sandals, the costly side-laced shoes of their conquerors. The Anglo Saxon shoes were open at the instep, and secured by a thong. Princes and high ecclesiastical dignitaries wore them of gold stuff, with lattice-pattern embroidery and pointed toes. This fash- ion of pointed shoes lasted from the time of Rufus to that of Henry VII. A Man Wltlt a Purpose. When General Charles Gordon—' Chi- nese \ Gordon—was installed governor- general of the Soudan, whither he has now gone again to rescue the country from the False Propet, in 1877, he was expected to make a speech at the end of the imposing ceremony. He simplv said: \ With the beip of God I will hold the balance level.\ / This speech delighted the people more than if he had spoken for half an hour. Gordon kept his word. During the years that he governed in the Soudan,and kept his eye on Abyssinia, he \held the balance level\ so well that at the end of his administration he could sum up the results of his labors in this brief and j truthful sentence \ anything else. Bones and of al undergo a similar process. When they come from the boilers, where they require to be steamed for fourteen houTs and sowfc- times longer, they look like sand with a sprinkling of white gravel. The white gravel is bone, which may easily be crushed between the tnumb and fore- finger. - The whole mass is sent through crushers and screens, which reduce it to powder, when it is ready for market. •* A large number of women and children find support in peddling bones. They go about the streets and retail shops and gather them up and sell them to the fer- tilizer manufacturers. The Bed 6am Chewers of Anuam. The Annamese, about whom so much is being said nowadays, are not an at- tractive people, but they do not wear pigtails, and I can tolerate any other vice, writes a correspondent of the New Or- leans Tim?*-Democrat. They are much like the Chinese in appearance and in many of their habits, following the same religion and living in much the same way. The most striking thing about them is their chewing habit. Instead of chew- ing tobacco, the men and the women alike universally chew a quid about the size of a filbert, made up of Syri leaf, betel nut, gambier and chunam. This preparation is of a deep red color, and imparts an exceedingly nasty appearance to the teeth, lips and gums. The people seem never to have discovered that this disgusting juice does not contribute to their personal appearance. Some day the revelation will burst upon them with stunning effect. At least, I hope so. Judging from the reddened ground where Anamites have been expector- ating one would think that this is a col- only of consumptives. Like all the other Orientals, the Anamese wear their hair TH JE VOYAOBR. High o'er dark Eaxthj red in tt» mam* glow, Hangs a bright bubble, strangely pofged in air— .

The butcher then comes with a murderous blade of the finest steel, two inches wide and two feet long, square pointed, and as sharp and keen as a razor. He grasps the now passive ani- malby the nose, and by a sudden move- ment turns the head over till the tips of both horns rest on the floor. The po- sition is such that the throat is stretched and the animal cannot turn back its k head. With a single stroke of the knife the head is nearly severed from the body. Another turn is given ig, but keep it bound up in a t ;rhaps I should except the Jaj this sweeping statement, for the revolu- tion in the matter of toilet which the last decade has wrought in Japan almost places the people there on a plane with Occidentals in this as well as many other respects. The appareling of the people is, in keeping with the climate, quite simple. The Anamese whom I have^een in full dress, wore cloths around their heads after a semi-turban fashion, and usually an elaborate high comb. These cloths were dyed some brilliant hue, usually blue or red, but I noticed in every casa that one corner was left un- stained by the dying liquid, so as to show to best advantage the original color-*nd the texture of the fabric. The shoes worn are heelless wooden affairs, that turn up in front and terminate in a long curved and pointed toe. The people are slender, have high cheek bones, homely features and are of a coppery color.
