Human Stomach* -- A Fevr Storlel Wlilrh, Although Vi-neruble. Art Kather AmuHlnc. [Special Washington Lottcr.l . A modest but very entcrUininjj nmn, In newspaper work here, tells some very interesting stories when in the company of congenial friends; but ho never likes to nee his n:ime in print, except when it appears atlaehed to articles in his home papers. This evening he was in a very happy mood. He said that in Texas nil people cat pio •whenever they can pet it, at liroaKfast, dinner Or supper, and when they dream ot Heaven they dream of biff fields full of ffrowing- pie. "And yet," ho wild, "there are only three kinds of pie made in all Texas; the kivered, tho unkivered, anil the eross-lum-cd." i;iillt on UK- rontrnn fiysluin. "Those pies aro not made to lie eaten," said the Texas man, "They ! arc simply made to sell. They tire '• bullion the contract system, like the j houses of speculators. It makes -me i elancholy to sec the sadness of tho | crusty. Now, there is an old j woman down in Dallas who makes pies which are never sad, and j nobody is sad after eating them, either, j She beats the whites of cjrgs with ( 'sugar, spreailfl theiri thin over the i Tinder ci-nst and bakes them a HttJo before she puts in the apples, peaches or other things. When the pies come out of tho oven the under crusts arc cri.sp and crackling, and just 'yum yummy.' It makes me pie-hungry to think of them," •' I5ut no Mich care is taken in our bi£ pic factory. The material for the insides of the pies is poured Into tubs, the requisite amount of sugar having been mixed with it. "fasto for crust is made very much as dough for bread is put together, only that very much more lard is used and tho flour and tho lard aro mixed at the beginning. When the dough is finished it is taken from the 'mixing trough and way with apples and spices. The lemons for lemon pie are grated, both skin and pulp, the seeds being first removed by hand and the stewing process following. Machines are employed to hash the meat, to pare apples—whether •used for mince or apple pics—to remove the cores from the apples also and strain the seeds from the grape pulp. Many of the fruits are canned in season and kept on hand the year round to dump into the pastry and rush into the big ovens. In fifteen thousand wholesale pies there are concealed hundreds of cases of dyspepsia. The flour is the cheapest obtainable, and everything else is cheap in proportion. Ilomo-Mndo I'lcn roster Content. "Why do you know," he added with Borne animation, "my wife is the smartest and handsomest woman I. ever saw. 1 love her and she loves me. We both love our children; and our children lovo us. This condition arises mainly from the fact that we have home-made pics. I do not believe that my wife would ever deceive me in anything; but, much r.s 1 lovo her, ii I was ever to learn that she had bought a factory pie and fed it to my children, I would sue for a divorce, or have her sent to an asylum. No good woman, who is sane, would allow her di-nr husband and children to cat pie from the factory as long as she can roll up her sleeves and knead dough." An Anclout I'lo Stot.v. "During the war," he continued, "many a Yankee soldier was killed with rolled upon a table into cylinders about four inches in diameter. A man chops these cylinders with a knife into pieces of just the bulk necessary to make a single crust, under or upper. Another operator takes these pieces as he wants them nnd rolls each of them swiftly out Into a very thin layer of dough. This ta slaps upon a tin plate which is im- ES THAT AKE NKVKK 8AV<. mediately passed ulong to the other end of the table, where a highly-skilled young woman docs nothing but Indlo out from a tub whatever mixture tho pies on hand are being made of, and puts a big- spoonful of it on each lower crust thus prepared. After seeing the work done in the so-called bakery, anyone can realize, that tho Texan is correct in his belief that the proprietor is manufacturing- pies by the wholesale ' to sell and not making them to be eaten. But they are all consumed, and the consumers wonder afterwards why they [i have to pfi" so many doctor's bills. The '.Texnn, telling of his visit to the pie - factory, drew a long breath n.tul solcjnnlv'snid: "Blessed is tho man whose • wile "fa n make pies Tor her fnmily. And, ".gentleman. I urn that man." Quito a pie-eating community exists in Washington, r.nd nearly every de- 'partmeut clerk or schoolboy curries a piece, i.n a luiplcin as part of the lunch •which is eaten in the departments or at school r.t the noon hour, when people •elsewhere throughout the country are '• eating their dinners. One bakery here 'produces fifteen thousand pies every :"<lay. rio-making is a wholesale business in all large citios: but the best of their pies are inferior to those our mothers and sisters make on Saturdays lor .home consumption, with cookies cake, on Sundays. In our big "pie orv nil of the m:iteri.".ls, as a matter inrse.are bought in great quantities. Apples, gropes, pineapples, huckle- :-berries, blackberries, pieplant, purnp- ' Jtins, poaches, strawberries, apricots. . lemons, and beef for mince, are laid in Retook by wholesale.

The rebel bullets were destructive, but the Yankees nearly all had pie, while the robs were going hungry. There was an old Irishwoman selling pie to tho blue coals at Alexandria, Va,, and they were all of the 'kivered' variety. One of tho Yanks asked her how she could tell the various kinds bc- foro cutting them, and she said: " 'That T. M. on th' crusht manes 'tis mince.' " 'Yes, but these others have T. M. on them, too.' " 'Av coorse,' sr.id the woman, 'but on thim pics the'I. M. manes 'tain't mince. 1 I!o\v Ono "Woman ."Unlton aiouoy. An enterprising boarding-house landlady is milking money on pic, even in tho dullest seasons. Nearly all of her boarders are from New England.'and she feeds them on piu and pastry at tho' breakfast table. She has an unusually large oven, and is making pie by the wholesale on 'a small scale. After breakfast her cook makes as many extra pies as she can, and cuts them each into four pieces. Then a neatly uniformed, brass-buttoned negro boy is started out with a tray piled high with pieces of pio in little paper bags. Ho goes through the various offices where girls are employed; and his daily supply is speedily disposed of. They are better made than the factory product, and aro not calculated to wreck homes nnd ruin strong constitutions. ItlKKejt Tie JFnflo in Wanliineton. ' The biggest pio ever made in Washington was turned out at tho close of t».o war by a baker named Lamb. He was a great pic maker, and during tho civil wnr his shop on Capitol hill produced hmulrcd:»of thousands of little bits of pies which were sold to the soldiers at ten eouts each. When tho grand review took place in May, 1665, he made a tremendous pie in four pieces, each piece being as large as his big oven would hold. The four pieces wore then brought together and made one enormous round pie six fuct in diameter nnd over eighteen feet in circumference. This pio was laid on a table on the sidewalk in front of the bakery. The shop wns opcit night and dav during the grand review, and thousands of soldiers saw it. Many of them had done extensive foraging during the war. but none of them tried to confiscate that pie. It wns too immense oven for "Sherman's bummers" to tuokle. They admired it, and bought Holman, of Indiana, was one ot trie prominent figures in the crowd of congressmen who weuded their way to Jennie's pie counter. But when Tom Reed was speaker he cleared the corridors of all stands of that character, and Jennie departed. There is no pie counter now in the capitol building; but the factory product can be obtained near .by. In the. senate restaurant, Mr. Page, the proprietor, furnishes genuine New England pies. It was the octogenarian Senator Merrill, of Vermont, who one day said: "Many senators come and cry for Page's popular pumpkin pics." The venerable .statesman used to stand there and eat pie, and afterwards drink a bottle of beer, and then go to his committee room and wonder why he had dyspepsia, Tho pies may Irave been all righi., but pies are not made to mix with beef. So groat a man as Senator Mori-ill ought to have known better. Me now cats crackers with milk for lunch. S.VITH D. FKY, THE RAGE FOR QUININE. As thu Di'uir Grown Clioupor tho Dunimid for 1C Tncrc:iHCH. The sale of quinine has increased in late years to such an extent, says a druggist who has one of the largest trades in this line, thitt it has become a staple article in nearly every drug store. It is being bought in bulk in such largo quantities that would surprise you. Quinine has gained a popular reputation by some means cr other of being a sort of cure-all. You can hardly imagine the various' illnesses which people are now using it to remedy. Sumo are foolish in tho extreme; how the customers get such ideas of quinine's efficacy in treatment of some sicknesses is more than I can say. The sale of thu drug has boon increasing rapidly during tho last few years. The two-grain pill is the ono that sells tho most. Three years ngo our store sold ten thousand of these, while this year the amount will beat least fn-e ' hundred thousand. The price, of course, has declined greatly : n jiir. i n ,-i, ."W-.vln on r.?""".\a'v of tlu 1 duly being iii'.v-un oil 1 aivl tlio gnat inr.-.n-s in its •.:i;-.:iu'aci.urc. About ten yo2."3 ago, f i-::vi-r.ibor, it sold for six dol'.ni's an ou'.ioo: now it can be bought in open market in live hundred onnca lots for twonty-fi^e cents, and at one time it was down as low as sixteen cents. People in using quinine should be careful that they get a good grac""of the article or that they aro not fooled altogether. In m'any cases an inferior product of the cinchona bark, from which quinine is made, is substituted for tho real article. It is ft little better than the cinchona, bark and has not nearly a third of the virtue of quinine. This is called cinchonidia, and can be bought for from two cents to four cents an ounce, just a little more than the bark itself. It is so good an imitation that tho customer is unable to tell the difference, except that the results will not be the same. Poo- pie should be careful to get the pure drug, and the only guarantee they can have is the reputation of tho man who soils it to them. Quinine pills must be taken by tho wholesale in some families. For instance, there is a man in Allegheny who buys them in five hundred lot* You would suppose he was going into the drng business, but as a fact he only uses them for his family. Winter, when people aro catching colds, is the best suason for the sale of quinine, although tho sale keeps up well during , the entire year, A damp, murky day is sure to bring the quinine fiend to realize that ho needs some of his favorite remedy, so the sales on these days aro always large.—Pittsburg Dispatch. Long Distance Talliins. The people of Albania practice long distance talking without the aid of the electric current. They have a curious habit when they meet of passing each other with a nod, or rjerhaps a handclasp and a few muttered words, and then wait until they got to the top of two hills to begin to talk. You march along after your Albanian guide and meet another. Ouyou.g-o and forgot that you met anybody, when suddenly, on arriving at the top'of a liill, 3'our guide turns around and yells out, "0. Georgio-o-o!'' or whatever the nani-a nmv be, spinning out the syllable to n-rcat length. The echo has hardly died away "before Ge&rgio answers from his hill, and these two leather 1 lunged fellows roar at each other for perhaps a half hour, at an interval of a Quarter tuile or more. Why they keep no this exasperating habit no one knows, and no • Albanian will telL— Golcicn Days. JaiiaaoBC Officers. A war correspondent, writing after familiar association with Japan's leading soldiers, says: "Tht Japanese officers arc a mixture of the French officers and the German sous , officers.

Meade applied at once for duty against the public enemy on the Atlantic coast. Returning when yet ill of ;i fever contracted in a Mexican harbor, he was assigned to duty as instructor in gunnery to volunteer officers on boa'rd the United States receiving ship Ohio, at Boston. During the three months that lie held this, position lie had as members of his class of fifty Acting Master James 11. Wheeler and Ebe-n M. Stoddard. These were the men who commanded the 11-inch pivot guns of the Kearsarge when she .sunk the Alabama. Active service followed tho second year in the war on the steam sloop Dacotah, of theXorth Atlantic blockading squadron, as executive officer of the Dnitcd States steamer Concmaug-h for three months during tlie summer, lie was commissioned a lieutenant commander in July of the same year. During this period he participated in several affairs with the confederate batteries on the Vernon river. In the fall of ISC2 Commander Meade was appointed to the command of thu ironclad Louisville, of the Mississippi squadron (under 'Rear Admiral C. 0. Davis, and afterward under Rear Admiral Porter), and was active in the events on the river between Memphis, Tenn.. and Helena. Ark. Highly commended in official dispatches, he was invalided home late in the winter, and assumed the duties of an inspector of ordnance in the ports of New York and Boston, With health restored, he was ordered to tho command of the steamer United States, and • afterwards commanded the naval battalion in New York during the July riots. Appointed to the command of the steam gunboat JIarblehead, he was commended for gallantry in the affairs on the Stono river, and from that time to the close of the war he was actively in command, and served with bravery and distinction in the- gulf and along the Atlantie seaboard.

In October, 1S50, at the age of thirteen, the present admiral was appointed midshipman from tho First district of California, and during his term at the naval academy ho made liis first practice cruise; in tho United States steamer John Hancock and the sloop of war Problo.

After leaving the academy he was ordered to the European squadron, and afterwards roado a cruise among the West Indies in the steam frigate Merrimac. At tho age of nineteen ho was appointed acting master and navigating officer aud ordered to tho Cumberland, tho flagship of Commodore Conover, who was in command of a squadron on the west coast of Africa.

The increased importation of Japanese saki has been the subject of consideration of the liquor importers for some time past. The recent action of the vitieultural association of California has brought this new favorite bev- erafre of the Iltiwaiians more prominently to the attention of Honolulu liquor houses. -The mandatory resolutions of tho California wine manufacturers were rather a surprise party to roost of the dealers here. They have noted the growing demand for the drink, but hardly expected such a decided expression of sentiments to which the Calilornians recently gave voice. There are fads in driulis as well as in dry goods. That beer and California light wines have tickled a man's palate lor years past is no proof that they •will continue to do so for years to come. The average frequenter of barrooms is looking for effects, and when he finds that a cheaper product will bring- about the same salubrious sensations in a short snace of time be is inclined to turn from his California wine cups and take to the Japanese. This is what saki has proved. The fig-ures of the custom house confirm the statements of the California exporters. The wines of the state have been crowded out, their importation has fallen off to a marked de<rreo during the past year. Saki importation has increased in nmcli larger proportion. • For 1S03 the importation of California •wine.s to this country amounted to 116.1-S2 gallons. In 1S'J4 ' these figures had dropped to OO.GS4 gallons, a decrease of 23.-J3S fjallon*. During- JS93 there -were 0,S39 gallons, of saki imported to this country. For ISO-*, these figures are 70,353 gallons. This gives a net increase in favor of the saki "of 37,611 gallons. . This showing-gives evidence of two existing facts: That there is an increased substitution of Japanese wines .for those of California; also, that tbcrs is increased consumption, presumably on recount of the ability to ottain » """* at once interest' the tempcrr.ncb agP- tator and the .importer of liquors. It is a notable fact that nnlive llawaiians.. have taken very kindly to saki and will often tnkc it in preference to th<* ever-faithful-gin to addle their brains.
