The annual meeting oi the National AnHocintioii of American Window Qlaaa Jfanufiicturers was recently held in New York. During this meeting the general state of the glass trade for the tiaat season was discussed, and it was admitted that,.the industry is in a- VieaVth- I ful and fairly prosperous condition. ! It ia not singular that this industry i should he prosperous if high protection j can make it prosperous. The window i glafiii importers have been paying duties | averaging 105 per cent. ! The rapid extension of our window i glass industry is sufficient proof of Us J flourishing condition. The wage coni- | xnitteus of the window glaaa workers of ! th;) northern, entitara and western dis- i ti'iets recently met in Washington, and I The Philadelphia Ledger, a leading Republican journal, gave the following as | a part of its report of their meeting: j "At the recent meeting of the wage i committees, which was presided over by | President Everhart, of L. A. 300, it was i reported that the window glass industry is enjoying a degree of prosperity throughout the country never before reached, aud in the west alone men will be required for new furnaces and tank factories equal to 200 additional shops. New glass factories are also being erected in the south, and at present it looks as if there will not be enough blowers in the country to supply the demand. This ia said to be the case in the eastern district especially, where the starting of several factories in New Jersey ia uncertain, owing to the inability of the manufacturers to secure enough blowers to operate them." The following news items from a recent number of The New York Oil, Paint and Drag Reporter are but specimens of what appear in that paper every week: "The new window glass factory at Massillon. O., is being rapidly pushed forward to completion/' "A new tank factory for the manufacture of window glass is being erected at Hartford City, Intl." "A new ten-pot window glass factory is being built at North Baltimore, O. It will be operated by the Enteprise company, whoso works at Beilaire will be allowed to remain idle until a supply of fuel that can bo depended upon is ob- A later number contains the following item: "The third tank furnace at the Chambers & JIcKee company's glass works at .Teannette has been put into oporatiou by the application of fire and the charging of the tank. They will be ready to blow glass at the new furnace by Sept. I, and employment will be given to H30 additional glass workers. Some of these new men may be drawn from Europe, but it is expressly stated that they will not come under contract and will have to take their chances of finding employment when they arrive." The precaution indicated in the last sentence here is due to the recent prosecution of James Campbell, the president of the Window Gloss Workers' association, for contrivcting with Belgian glass blowers to come to these same works at Jeannette, and who escaped conviction, it ia believed, solely because of the laxness with which the government prosecuted the case, Campbell being a protectionist orator of some influence among j the glasB workers. 1 Campbell wan before the McKinley committee lasftanuary to ask that congress restore the duties to what they were iu 138;!, when there was a very slight reduction. He also asked for "an additional bracket;" in other words for a special duty on the larger sizes now being manufactured. McKinley gave the increased duties, but not the "additional bracket." According to the estimate of McKinley's own expert the equivalent ad valorem rate on the larger sizes would be in his bill 188 per cent. When, however, the senate finance committee took mi the bill it unceremoniously cut out McKinley's additional duty, leaving the duties as they are at present, which means an equivalent ad valorem of V.K.2V) per cent, on the larger sizes. Jiut Campbell is not a faint hearted man, and he has been tackling the senate committee in defense of McKinley's schedules and painting pictures of blue ruin if the. additional duty were not granted. The report, says: "Mr. James Campbell, chairman of the glass work- era' committee, argued for the maintenance of the schedule of duties on window glass fixed by the McKinley bill. He showed by statistics and the present condition of wages and trade that the reduction made by the senate committee on this linn of manufacture would be disastrous. The committee accorded a courteous heariug, but there is no intimation as to whether Mr. Campbell's arguments will prove successful." This same man Campbell I MM I paraded before the McKinley committee an array of wage rates of glass makers in Pittsburg, These rates were very high, owing to the cast iron rules of Campbell's association, whereby the number of apprentices ia rigidly kept very low for tlwi exprean purpose of increasing wages artificially. In this way he had a very satisfactory exhibition of wages to make before McKinley. But how is it that Campbell now finds that the continuance of the present duty CM glass will prove "disastrous?" His coat iron association has succeeded in shutting off competition from such Ameriuan labor as it does not choose to ttdmit to the trade and in this way wages hits been kept at a High figure under the operation of the existing high tariff. Bow can disaster result by simply continuing the present duty? But is not James Campbell simply a cheap tariff demagogue?

The cobbler looked up from his work, sized his caller up, and then resumed his pegging without a word. "Mice weather, Uii3," suggested the agent, us he sat down on the only chair in the shop. No response. "That is, it's nice weather for flies. Beats nil how many liies there ure around this year. Did you ever make an estimate of the number of house ilie.s in New York?"

The cobbler dampened a piece of sols leather and hammered it out, but said nothing. "But for the ingenuity of man the house fly would make life almost u purgatory during tiie summer," continued the agent lis he nibbled am piece of the shoemaker's wax. "Lett to his own free will the pest would damage this oily #|0,OUO,000 Worth every year. The inventor of the fly screeu was a greater man than Columbus. Have you ever figured on the cost of screens for the door mid two windows!'" The cobbler was silent. "Probably not, and you'll be astonished at the low price. Just let me measure. Now, I'll figure a iittle. Ah! here it is—a result to astonish you. I can screen those openings with our patent woven wire cloth fot—how much do you think!'" The cobbler was burnishing oft a heel and never raised his eyes. "It figures $4.80, but as I want to introduce these goods in this neighborhood I'll make it even dollars. Come, now, but it's the biggest bargain of the century." The old cobbler reached for his hook and prepared to pull out the hist. "I shouldn't wane you to give my figure away to the baker above or the tailor below you, both of wliom have given me orders at regular prices. As I said, the object, is to introduce the goods and secure a foothold." The cobbler pulled and pulled, and the last finally vume out with a "chuck." "Remember that 1 warrant these screens for jive years, which is something no other agent dnrus do. They hulk the fly, baffle the moth, perplex the mosquito mid make life miserable fur all kinds of bugs. They have an aristocratic look, are generally accepted ns evidence of thrift, and I'll defy you to find a business house iu New York provided with our screens which can't discount its paper. Let's see. Y/hat is the name, please!'" "You like some patches put on i" asked the cobbler, ns he suddenly looked up. "Patches! Why, no. I called to take your order for" "Vou want a lift on your hoeU" right. I want to supply these openings with our" "No work for you?" "No, 1 don't want anything done. As I have -everal times informed vou I called to" The cobbler sat down, picked up an old shoe, cut a "rise" for the left side of the heel, and began driving in pegs, and after j standing for two or three minutes the agent walked to the door and turned and said: "Very well. 1 come to you not only as an agent, but a public benefactor, and you treat me with contumely and contempt. In brief, you make me weary. Suppose we say S3.50 for the three openings." No response, "An even So." Deep silence. "There is a limit to what even the fly screen man can bear," said the agent.

I have had a great deal of experience in tree planting. So matter what kind of soil, whether it be a now, loose loam or n rich old loam, if you plant too deeply vou will lose your trees; indeed there is more danger from deep planting than a little shallow planting. I wits passing by in the month of March, tins present yenr, where they were planting trees. I looked on for a few minutes. I remarked, 'you are planting your trees too deep.' The answer I got was, 'the soil is dry and wo must plant deep.' I Hiiiii, 'you will smother your trees.' One . month ago I saw the snme trece, and more than halt were dead and the balance were struggling hard for life. "If your soil in light, tread the surface, or press the soil around the trunk well an.) put some old straw or old manure around, which will help retaiu the moisture, but don't plant too deep to get moisture. I took up one of those trees mentioned, while it still had some life, and examined the roots. The bark or akin of the roots sloughed off like the flesh of a bone llmt had been Bcahied. By my advice they scraped Home oi the noil away from those that were still living, and the trees showed signs, soon alter, of a healthier growth, and put forth new leaves.

In fact it became so large several years ago that it furnished au "overflow meeting," and tha "West Side l .eilies' Literary club," s" her siuo- ilur and prosperous organ on, was formed. Now, again, it has grown until, like an athlete, it must redn-" its proportions to secure its greatest eiiiclency. Tho Ladies' IJU-rnry club, of Grand Rapids, is the outgrowth of a class in history formed among the women of Qraud Rupids by Mrs. L. H. Stone, of KaJ imt- zoo, a woman who has been instrum 'tal lu forming several other women's clubs in the west. The history class was disbanded in the winter of 1871-72, but the taste for study hail been excited. A meeting nf six women was held at the residence of Mrs. S. L. Fuller, a wealthy woman widely known for her originality and culture as well as for her charity. These six women formed themselves into a club. THE Cl.VJB IS OnOA.NIZKD. Mrs. Fuller drew up a constitution and iiisued a coll to the women of the city who were Interested in the project to join the club. About thirty responded. The first regular meeting was held in April, 1873. The membership soon reached 100. Since that time the growth of the club iu numbers und in influence has been steady. The present membership Is over 500, and embraces not only many women of wealth, but many without wealth, women in society and those not in society. The average attendance nt the meetings, which ure held every week, Is about 800. The ladies believe that with a membership of snore tlniu 300 the club cannot work to so good an advantage as with a smaller number. They have decided occordingly to limit It to 500. No new members will be received therefore until tiie number falls below 300. Dec. 31, 1887, was a red letter day for the club. That day the ladies dedicated a club house, erected under their own direction for their own exclusive use. Up to that time, although they hod » library of nearly 1,0()0 volumes, a large and choice collection of photographs, a piano, a considerable amount of furniture and other paraphernalia for club housekeeping they had occupied rented rooms. Living lu rented rooms did not sutlsfvthese nroKreesive women, rney oecidod to buy a lot ana Buna a house of their own. The building fund comprised (1,50G in the treasury, on annual Income of (UOO and a relentless determination, The lost mentioned Item was the pnuclpal resource, for it was convertible Into several times as much cosh as both the others combined. A lot was purchased on Sheldon street, one of the finest streets in the city, and July 30, 1S87, the corner stone of the new club house was laid. Five months later the house was dedicated. THK CLUB HOUSK, The club house is two stories in height at the front, with a lofty single story iu the rear for the main hall or auditorium. It is built of Amherst (O.) Milestone and Grand Rapids repressed brick, with terra coltu trimmings, slate roof, stained glass aud French plate glass windows. At the ! front on the first floor the maiu entrance : opens into a large reception hall, with a i handsome, brood, winding staircase lead! lgn to the "upper room," as the ladies I designate what club meu would call a banquet hall. Bock of the stairs on the north side is a commodious and convenient toilet room. At the left of the main entrance, on the first floor and frontiug the street, is the elub library, a room about twenty-five feet square. l "ie library opens into the auditorium, a room about fifty feet square, with a ceiling twenty -one feet high, embracing a dome and skylight at the center. At the further or west end of the auditorium is a large stage, flanked by dressing rooms. The floor of the auditorium is slightly inclined toward the stage. It is covered with a handsome body Brussels carpet, ia which a soft, yellowish browo is the prevailing tint, harmonizing perfectly with the beautiful decorations of tha ceiling and dome. The library is finished in oak, aud is also elegantly decorated. The colors are darker than those of the auditorium, but are complementary to them. Above the mantel in the audlto- um is a beautiful plate glass mirror of the full width of the mantel, while iu t he library the oaken panel above tha mantel bears the word "Books" iu bold, caned letters, surrounded by a scroll, on which | is the text, "Round these our pastimes and our happiness will grow." THK WEEKLY MEETINGS. A regular meeting of the club is held every Satur J »y afternoon and lasts two hours, except during the heated term, when a vocation Is usually taken or the meetings ore limited to one hour. As provided by the constitution of tho club, the first meeting in each month is devoted to the consideration of subjects pertaining to art and literature, to be brought before the club by a committee of three who serve for .a period of three months. For the second Saturday of the mouth u similar committee furnishes topics on edueatiou, and for the third Saturday another committee furnishes subjects in history. The meeting of the fourth week Is in oharge of un "entertainment committee," and whenever this committee furnishes au evening 's entertainment not only do all mem bars of tha club have a standing invitation, but each member may invite one person to accompany her. The hours fw entertainment are from 7 to 10 p. m. The entertainment generally includes plays, music, readings, recitations, etc. Cards and refrisbmeuts are prohibited. When a fifth Saturday occurs in any month it Is called "President's day," and on that day the president brings i before the elub such general topics aa she I sees fit. I The programme committees lay out their , work systematically and carefully, and [ ooplea are printed and diatriuuted among j members in advance, thus giving members it chance to study the subjects before their Chicago Tribune.

The local umwera, meanwhile, will undoubtedly have crop* of considerable value, and the two will come into fharp competition iu the East. The Euetern grow era will suffer a disadvantage, because the California people pack their fruit in good shape and grade it carefully, while the local producers pack carelessly, grade in the same manner, and ship in any kind ol' packages that mny come to hand; beside this, the Culifnruiaiis do not charge for the case or packing, while the Eastern growers either make a charge or aak that the cases he returned. The failure oi the Eastern crop ibis year will put ! the Westerners in the way oi supplying ' the market here, and with such a start it, in quite probable that they will supplant the Atlantic Coast growers altogether unless the latter adopt the California method of handling and shipping their produce.
