ALTON DAILY TELEGRAPH. BT W, T. XORTOlf, Cor. Third nod Piiwn Street*, Alton, 111, THUUSDAr EVE., FEB. 8. Egyptian r.nin'rlen. An Alexandria correspondent, writing to the DvVroit Free /Yew, snys: Iti- QUiry into the mutliot! of prupnrlug tlio delleioua ooll'eo of Egypt—iofico turvtid In minute cups, evuu sumller limn the after-dinner coffeo cups of France ami of the sumo alraight-siilud ehnpe—• brought to light tlio following facia:. Pint, the cofleo aliouhl bo pure Moohn from the Jltilo Islund so near ouc in tlio Mediterranean, nud, -by the wtty, it is Almost Impossible to get the ronl nrticlo since it is nil mijrngutl years iilioad. Then the coffee Is ground ns lino as flour. Next, a sniull nirioinit of the coffee and the necessary nmount of tugur is put into n brass or copper vessel shaped esrselty Jike an ordinary bnbjr's tln-rfttilo, with tlie cover takou off of one of the font on da Tlio cup thus formed and containing the mixture of coffee and sngur in filluil nearly full of •water ond is Yield by tho handle over the tire until the coffee bolls; then it is withdrawn and allowed to cool n moment, and is then liuld over the fire and the coffee allowed to come to a boil again; once more it is'cooled ami after the coff«ecomt>8 to a boil the third time it is ready and is poured into the little cups. The brass coffee-boiler generally holds enough for two cups, though larger ones lire sometimes used, some holding four cupfuls. The liquid is thick and brownish-black, with a light- colored froth on top, and it is delicious. After the coffee la ([rank, at the bottom of the cup remains about three teaspoon- tuts of sediment that ia like thick mud and la the coffee deposit. This cotl'eo and a glass of water and an amber mouthpiece of the ten-foot long, flexible stem of the narguiloh are the sights above the tables in all directions, and, searching below, we tind scattered around the glass vessels half filled with water, to which the snaky stem may be traced. It is decidedly a lazy man's smoke, as the tobacco is very mild and half an hour is required to get hall a smoke, and how long a pipe will lost uo one knows. An hour and a half is as loug as 1 have smoked on one, and then it was pulling aw ny bolter than ever. It may take an inveterate smoker to enjoy one' of these water pipes, but when the Inveterate does get one he obtains a real treat after he has got the hang of it aud does not tire himself out drawing too hard. Smoking- a nargbilch differs from other kinds of smoking in that the smoke all goes through the water below and ia thus pud lied, and also in the method, because in place of short puffs is substituted a deep breath, and the smokn is taken into the lungs. It is not possible to smoke the nargJiiloh tin a pipe is smoked, so that those fearing to inlmlu tobacco should never uitnck this water-pipe, 'also culled the "hubble- bubble," which seems a very good name, and appropriate, too, as it expresses the nome made by the separate bubbles us they rise to thu surface of the water from the bottom of the vertical pipe that leads up the tobacco. The natives take their coffee and a strong pull at this pipe, which is a regular piece of furniture, us soon as they get.- up in the morning, and seem to keep nt it all day, too. They claim, also, tliut the uargluleh is good for colds, and they deserve credit for having found un agreeable thing that is good for any ailment, and that will replace fried onions around the neck of the unfortunate soul with the cold. The cafe is as great an institution with the puopla of tlio Orient as it is with the Pniiiuli, and the warm climate makes the shaded oul-door tables the popular ones, and they are crowded nil day, whether along the Mohammed Ah square and in tnu crowded business places or in the back alleyways where the visitors sit or recline on cane-bottomed lounges and meditatively draw long draughts of peace. Where all these men gel a living is a mysterv, as thousands of them seem to do' nothing all day but drink coffee and smoke.

The average olilz«n is not, apt to receive a comic valentine descriptive of of his principal fault or weakness with any degree of pleasure, says n writer in the Brooklyn Eitgle. He often gets mad and in ome oases searches for the sender. A factory iu this city has, during the past ten months, turned out fifteen million comic and live million sentimental valentines. -With auoh advantages practical jokers and lovers will have plenty of material with which to work on February 14, Valentino's birth- d»T. The former prevalent custom of Tenting a petty spile by sending a comio valentine, hits comparatively died out in tlio eastern and middle stales. West of the Mississippi river the valentine has, however, a ready sale, 1 recently paid a visit to the nbovo- mentioned factory. The many operation) through which loy-books and valentines pass before they are ready lo be delivered to tlio retailer are interesting. The first Moor of the factory Is occupied by paper-mining and embossing machines. The paper on which valentine* are printed is received from the manufacturer direct, and Is not in condition for use. It must bo cut in pieces, 4x2 1-2 feet, nnd on which arc stamped sixteen oomio valentines. After being cut, the paper is taken to the second floor and printed. Throe hundred out of the four hundred employes in the factory are women and cms. While the nuijorlly of the work Is done by skilled labor, BOIUO departments uro operated wholly by machinery. On the sixth or top floor half a dozoa artists draw the pioiuros used In valentines and toy book*. After a drawing 1* made and photographed the negative Uooatod with A solution nnd exposed to the sun. The negative In again coated, thu timo with luliographlu ink, und placed In a basin of water bnroly deep enough lo cover It. The Ink is washed off, uxoout that part of the plate on which tue dmw lug hu« boon photo- graphed. The negative is then ready for the etcher. The etching process is too well kncrtva to bear repeating here. After the drawing has been etched on a 2lno plate it Hi ready for the press. The operation by which rough zinc it made smooth is interesting. Tlio zinc is placed under movable emery papers, which are charged half-hourly. Those papers vary from hard to soft. The constant friction of the emery wears uwuy the zinc, so that ia time it becomes n> smooth ns glass. Suvun pn- pern, differing in quality and thickness, uro used in the operation. Supu Thompson estimated that the firm owned 160,000 steel and zino plates. It must not be supposed that n valentine can be struck off complete by one Impression. In some cases valen- t/nes puss tliroii'.'h no less than n dozen iinpreMions. Each impression adds a different shade or color to Uio picture. Take for example a drawing of a machinist at work. The man's hat is red, his face and arms are pink, his lialr ami mustache are blue, with a tinge of hluck, and it (iron utul table are yellow, the iroitBurs green, wliilu his shoes are blue, will) n tinge of black. Sentimental valentines are made of fancy paper and satin. The plates pass through the same process as comio. The handsome, highly purfumod valentines, which I ho languishing swain pays from $3 to So for, are hand-painted,* or, ns the superintendent said, touched up. The louchiug-up consists of artistically daubing paint huru nnd Uiero about the outer surface of the valentine. These hasty strokes result in Bowers, pictures dos'criptivu ot the billings of turtle doves, and pastoral scenes. The valentine tinu employs n poet, to whom it pays n. weekly salary. This genius writes yards upon "yards bt poetry (P) daily. Tlio firm's production of comio valentines this year include 2,000 different designs and the same number of original versos. Tlio poet has within the past six months written 2,000 comio verses, in addition to 500 verses of sentimental poetrv. It is said that valentine poetry is "difficult lo write, and if tins be true the composer of 2,500 verses averaging eight lines each, is entitled to uo little consideration. Remarkable Climatic. Ctiangm, The arid zone, the land that has so long resisted the cncr'onohmcut of set- tiers, nnd whoso only crop for many yenrs was bankrupts, is now being rapidly settled, writes a Snlina, Kan., correspondent of the New York NMH. During the past year almost 200,000 people settled on that portion of it which lies in Kansas. The rain belt has moved westward far beyond the 100th meridian, or, to be more accurate, a new rain bolt has been evented. For thirieen years, from 1870 to 1883, men entered the arid zone, built )-ouses. plowed the prairie sod, sowed grain, and attempted to farm. They lost their money, their time, and, in many cases, their courage. Many of these men returned east to live on their wives 1 relatives. Other men took the abandoned houses and arid farms, nud in time those, too, became bankrupt and returned to the east or pushed westward to the highlands. All men of intelligence knew that the arid zone WHS unfit for .agricultural purposes. They know that the physical conligurutlon of tlio land lying west of the arid belt, nnd which controls its climate, could not bo changed. The seniors, eager for land and homes, continued to pour into the dry region. At last, they have been rewarded. They have secured three con- serulivo crops "of grain, and the fourth crop of xvlieat is in sight So much rain now falls in the eastern portion of what was once the arid belt that it is no longer fit for a winter range for cuttle. If sufficient rain falls to wash tlio nutriment out of the gross then tlicro is sufficient rainfall to grow wheat lo perfect maturity. During the Hired years hist passed the winter-wheat producing belt has been pushed westward almost 300 miles. At least 25,000,000 acres Imvo been added to t)io area of the American winter- wheat growing field. The land is virgin. It produces No. 2 winter-wheat. It now looks as though the arid zone was to bo the groat winter-wheat producing country. What has wrought the change in the climate of otistuni Colorado aud western Kansas? That question can not be accurately answered. The winds blow from the same direction they formerly did, but they are not sirocco-like. The rainstorms come from the west, generally, and in the past the west wind was dry wind. In my opinion the change is due to the extensive irrigation of the land lying along the eastern base of the Rocky mountains. Great rivers, which head in the perpetual snow-banks of those mighty ranges, have been turned into irrigation ditches, and the water which formerly ran wastefully to the Gulf of Mexico has been turned on to the arid plains. There it soaks into the soil. The wind sweeping over the land suuks up a largo portion of it. There is moisture in the air, aud it is precipitated as-rum on the plains of eastern Colorado and western Kansas. So extensively is Irrigation practiced in Colorado that almost nil the water was taken out of the South Platte river last year. Fifty miles eastward from Denver the r.truam was a tiny rill. As it is with the South Pliuic, so it is with less important streams, nud so tt will bo with streams of larger volume. The system of irrigation which has boon applied to the land lying aJong the eastern hose of the Hooky mouuulns is now being applied to the western slope and to the arid basin lying between the Kooky mountains and the Slorni Nevada range. In a few years the water which uow flows wastefully into the Colorado and the Columbia will bo taken from the branches of tliosn large streams and used to irrigate arid ianil. It is highly probable that the climate of the whole Kooky mountain region will bo changed in the near future, "and changed by the irrigation of the land lying west of it. Mure rain will fall in the highlands during the summer. The streams which drain the eastern slopes will remain full longer. More water will bo expended on the plains, nud more ruin will full in Colorado and eastern KiiiitfitiL Tlio arid eouo will practically disappear. Food'rbr'Coiiiiiimptlrei.
