OpprobrioiiH Kpitheta. Strikes bring out 'tho technical slang of the trades, and pariiunlarly the opprobrious epithets by which the different classes of workman distinguish the unskilled men who labor ut the same trades. In most cases it will bo found that theso slung terms originate in some technicality of tho trade. Thus the telegraphers call a poor operator a •plug,' after the little metal plug or pin in the switchboard, good only to open and close the circuit. They are also called 'chair-warmers,' the moaning ol which is apparent to everybody. Printers designate ifu unskilled typesetter as a 'shoemaker' or a 'blacksmith.' The derivation of the .former • appellation is from the fact that n compositor who makes errors is obliged to correct t.hom after tho type is set up by taking out the misplaced let- tors and 'pegging' the proper ones into their places. Tailors also use the word 'shoemaker 1 to distinguish u poor hand, as an unskilled workman makes his stitches too far apart, and is therefore better adapted to sew leather, where he can punch the holes with mi awl before pulling his needle through. The appellation 'blacksmith' is applied to a printer whoso fingers are clumsy, and a jeweler also terms an imskilk'd worker at his trade a 'blacksmith' for tho same reason. A term of opprobrium which was used by old Now York printers to denote an unskilled compositor was the word 'boarder,' from the fact that a poor Land w>w generally a drinking man and spent his limn loafing or 'boarding'in liquor saloons. All striking workmen in common U.HU the generic word 'scab' to distinguish (hose who take the place if strikers. The derivation of this voitl is obviously from tins fact that the scab in a morbid growth, and lives only at 'the expense of the general well-being of this rust of the body. Shiikspoare use,* tho> word seal) a- 1 , a term of opprobrium, and WebsUo 1 do- tines scab iir! a 'mean, paltry JV1I >w' which may have suggested the application of tlm word to its present-use. Ditlorcnt occupations have, however, special names to particularize- the scabs of their rosp.cotivc i-allings. Tims comput-itors full a scab a -rat,' in con- tomptiunts (illusion to the rodents that , infest printing-oflieM. The telegraphers have only roccni.ly invented a term for seal) operators. They call them 'coutumi.sts,' ihoii;vl> tho torm is not of technical (Icnvaiku, but is probably an attempt to mamil' e- ture a word from the'Latin ui.ttitn-r, the root of contumacious, to (l»scr>:,r. a stubborn awlobsiinaU' person, 'i'lif re,' is, however, a strong curruiii ;.moug some of tho operators that then: was a noted seal) in tho big strike in IfWfl by tho inimo of Cou Toomoy, iwl hcneo ono who follows in his fiwi-.-trps is callod a 'contumist,' which is iviiniuly a moro hiimoroiw durivation tlmn the former. The iron-workers, especially the nailers, torm a scab a 'black -h'M>p,' while tho hatters say bo Is 'foul.' This custom of designating those who work contrary to the rultvt and wi •!).',< of thnir fellows by some uiu'ouiplimrut-• iiry unmo Is not coulineil lo those who are wage-workers.

The oecentricitk'H of Mrs. John Bigo- low have been table talk on both sides of tho ocean for twenty years. Many of tho stories told about her are well known, und »<> many keep coming up tbivt, tia one clover ^'ew York Avotiwn proteBturt, "lot tis not btxjtn to tnlfc (ibotit Mrs. Bigcknv, /or H spoils oon- vi-rBatlon." Tho btst of all thoancc- dott's about Mrs.. Big-oUnv, nnd ono com. imruUvcly new, is of her milking Mrs, lilnlnc carry lusr rubber overshoes homo to^ Mrs, Bigulow's boarding house in this city, while Mrs. Ulgelowwcnt on a rcnind of pleasure rejoicing. It hap- jxjnijd thnt Mrs. Bigelow. ouic.lng out from one nftcrnoou reception, mot Mrs. Blnlno also just leaving tho scone. "I HUpiKWu, us you -nru such a groat jiersomigo, you huvo your cnrriiigo, Mrs. iilnlne, iinil cnn gho mo a lift," said Mrs. Bigolow. "I would gladly," »ho said, "but I nm hurrying to tho Capitol to bring Mr. Dining down. I will bo Into now." Mrs. Biynlow wns not daunted, nnd, jissmriug her (hut it, would not bo thu len.ft trouble for Mrs. Blaino to drive a few blocks iftit of thn way to leave her at her bdiu^lin;: house, walked on to tho carriage with her. On tJio Way tho eccontric lii'.ly mot hur own daughter and a young man, and with slight ceremony she ordurod them into tho carriage and told tho footman whore Miss Bigolow wished to be dropped for some afternoon tea, quite in another direction from the Capitol. On arriving at the place Mrs. Bigolow decided that she would go into the- tea instead of going homo, and as she descended from tho comfortable landau she turned and pressed into Mrs. Blairie's -hands her rubber overshoes, saying: "Just leavo them at tho house as you go by, and it will be nil right." In that way, before slu; cottld protest or toll how it.happen- od, Mrs. Blaino.wns driving down the .street and ringing tho boardiug-houso -.loor bell and discharging her errand.— OMeay'o Unrald. Liberty's Torch. Tho noble Barlholcli statue in New York harbor, says a wrilor' in Science, suflors a great injustieu, so far as tho idea of its conception goes and the ro^ qiiisites for its most complete artistic, propentatiou are concerned, in being made to hold a star in its hand poorly represents tho lambent arid rolling stalks of lire which tho thought of a torch suggests, and fails to accentuate the statue with any dramatic or spectacular force. ' The attempt should be made to burn a large volume of gas properly distributed over the present surface of the torch, and this would seem altogether feasible. A consumption of from n thousand lo two thousand cubic feet of gas per hour iuiglit.be required, but the result'would bo incomparably more •striking and noteworthy. A series of one-inch pipes passing up into the torch, emerging at various points so as to completely invest it with tho con- Itucnt lUmu.'s issuing from their openings, would probably serve the pur- !>O.-K>, the g;is being permitted to burn •uuk-r :v pressure but slightly, in. excess •if its own ascensional power. Two objections might bo urged against this proposition—iirbt, tho smokinosa of ;he iliime, producing an ugly and dirty iippearnnec; second, the probability of its extinction in high gules. The lirst objection has not much .weight, as tho tail of drifting smoko would hardly detract from the-..splendor oJ tho pillar of flame, and in . any case could bo considerably overcome, by an oll'ereiit tube with a perforated circular cap /ceding air to tlie .summit of the torch, somowhiit on the plan of tho central air channel in the popular climax oil lamp. The second objection is valid, but. only in extreme cases; and, as the gas should be lit by electricity, tho highest: gale-* would only alter tho cnnstiiney of the light, its extinction being succeeded by the renewed llauic. Again by curving the oxtromi- tioH of the pipe, even these exceptional cases might !><> yet further reduced in number. The gas might bu supplied from the mainland, or if that appears too expensive, or it.self impracticable, naphtha or gas (enriched-air) could" bo safely used, the precaution being taken of substituting for tho largo tubes bundles of smaller pipes.
