Cincinnati Weekly Enquirer (Newspaper) - May 02, 1877, Cincinnati, OhioThe Cincinnati weekly enquire fatigued the mistress to no purpose. Now the was attentive and docile. Intelligence was not wanting and i must say that Miette with her Serene simplicity was an admirable teacher. Miette liked to do Well every thing a he undertook. At the Convent which she entered As a peasant die came out tau Ming Ewery thing better than her companion and the had continued her a indies since bar return to her Home. She had always consulted is in the Choice books and when die had Reed beat a Une to disease them with me to present her objections and to ask tue to solve them. I saw then that she Hod read and read Well and admired the peaceful Harmony that reigned in her brain which still retained its freshness and healthy action in spite the constant use the will and the rigid performance moral obligations. I Unnic stood perfectly the Worth the woman i wished to bestow upon qty Eon. And Mademoiselle de Nives who until the present time had known Only the patience and kindness heart now comprehended the superiority her companion. At the end a month she knew enough to have no longer the resource saying she was too ignorant to be judicious. Chapter Xiv. When Marie was Twenty one years old that is about a fortnight after a Fie took up her abode with me when All her affairs were settled signed authenticated and terminated and when Madame Alix satisfied and delighted had taken tight for Monaco where she wished to pass the Winter Jacques Ormonde came with Henri to take Possession the Tower Perc Emont. The weather was still Fine the chimneys did not smoke and we saw each other every Day. Mademoiselle Ninie went to make boats with her sister As often As she wished and Bebelle had the table Well served All the time without giving herself any trouble and without having dramatic scenes with the Cook. Miette after finishing her duty As teacher hastened to Pluck a Partridge or make butter. Nothing was Ever behind hand for a moment even when my wife who had a restless nature anticipated the time fixed by herself for such or such a piece work. Besides Miette preserved without Effort the Blind submission fact which is the sine qua non toward a provincial Mother in Law who thenceforth finding Herbert satisfied in her legitimate Pride As a housewife gave the absolute government tie household into her hands and avowed that repose was occasionally very pleasant. Jacques Ormonde during this time was receiving great Benefit from Henri a influence. Their Etc a Etc at Vig Nolette had been employed in Mutual comprehension and Mutual appreciation each other. A we did not think running about or Hunting a said Jacques. A would you believe that we shut ourselves up at Vig Nolette like two hermits and that the Only exercise we took was to walk in the vineyards or the Garden while we talked together from morning till evening Tiow much we had to say truly we were Little acquainted with each other before. Henri confessed to me that he thought i was All stomach i confessed to him that i thought he was All brain. We discovered that we had above All hearts that understood each other perfectly. Emilie will find her cellar in As Good order As when she gave us the keys. We drank nothing but the water anal. We Felt from the beginning that we needed no stimulants and that we had been sufficiently excited by the stirring emotions our souls had a this is the reason you look refreshed and like one rejuvenated. Continue this regimen my dear boy and in a few weeks you will become again the handsome a never fear Uncle t see now How it happens that after having been the favorite so Many women who were Good judges i ran aground against a Little school girl who without your Aid never could have loved me. The Point in question now is to recover the Power pleasing. I have no desire to make myself a laughing Stock the first time i kiss my intended a add one thing More a said Henri a a that you made sober reflections upon the duties life such As you never took time to make before we mad Mutual confessions one was no better than the other. But we touched upon each other s faults More lightly. You were too lenient i was too severe we mean however to walk henceforth in the path truth and our life is not Beautiful and Good i Hope it will not be our fault any Jacques left us to join Marie and Ninie who fortunately for our purpose Clung to her sister like a Shadow in gathering the fresh bouquet that every Day adorned our family table. The Frost was not yet severe. There were still in the Garden splendid a Liina asters Model Tea roses Mignonette and Heliotrope in abundance and Many varieties mallows whose Beautiful curled Leaf enlivens and embellishes the pyramids fruit at dessert. A come now a i said to Henri a what Are you going to Tell me yourself you have said nothing to Miette i know a a and i shall say nothing to her a he replied. A i can not think the proper words my heart is too full. I found again at Vig Nolette All the sweetness my first intoxication every Leaf every Blade grass was a Page my life and brought Back to me a fiure and burning image the past. Erni in s abode is a Sanctuary for me. Would you believe that i did not allow myself to look into her chamber even from the outside though the casements were often left open i was contented with examining the embroidery on her furniture every stitch perfectly shaded and brought into line was a reproach to the hours i had lost or employed Unworthily when far away from her. What a frightful contrast there is Between the life a pure girl and a Gay Young Man even among the least depraved his class Emilie is Twenty two years old she has passed three or four years in waiting to see my will and pleasure would bring me Back to her the most trying years perhaps in a woman s life she has risen above the endurance Solitude or Lias accepted it a Fiance at the velvet Down her Cheeks at he purity her smooth eyelids and Rosy lips gives abundant proof that an immodest idea or simply a bold one has never thrown a Shadow Over this Flower this precious Diamond. Jacques in his hours unreserved Confidence confessed his Many indiscretions and i did not laugh for i remembered my own Short comings. i have become reconciled with myself on account my Good resolutions i can not yet get rid a feeling shame in Emilie a presence. Here we Are reunited at last living under each others eyes. Every moment when i can approach tier without being intrusive i seek her smile offer my assistance or talk with tier old times that is our old and Happy love i see plainly she has not forgotten the enjoyment the past she is pleased with my Good memory and smiles or sighs at the remembrance our childish oys and sorrows. She understands certain a that i am not ardently reviving All this past to Bury it in Barren regret but when i am ready to put into the present the word happiness i perceive the necessity commencing with that forgiveness and feeling that years reparation can alone give me this right. I can not say a single word. When then alas shall i see the Day draw near in which i can say a be my wife a a Emilie was passing us with a Basket Ripe grapes gracefully poised upon her head. she had been a Coquet she could not have chosen a Richer or More becoming coiffure. The delicate Vine branches with their varied shades vivid color fell Back Over her dark hair and the grapes Brilliant As garnets formed a diadem on her Beautiful brow As pure and proud As that a Chaste Nymph. A Miette a said Henri who had Purric toward her a will you be wholly the daughter your Uncle who loves you so much and the wife you Cousin who adores Wen a a you think i deserve the happiness being yours forever a replied Miette pert Ting tier arms around my neck a Stoke me i belong to t ,.f a a i the two marring a took place on the a me weddings mad Day and the two weddings made but one at the Mata Rienche then Henri and his a use a maps 1� their beloved Marie and i lie lilt pcs a few i Solitude Vig Nolette. Int to hand went away with Tnie in by carried every thing away Oren to the tongs. Jacques appreciated tha value Money but lie had the food Sanee to sympathise in i wife s disinterestedness a my instead being indignant Bis feelings found to a slim in loud bursts laughter so that the Avari Cious a spoliation their Home was for several Days a source much mirth. Besides every thing was not lost. One evening Marie said to Jacques a take a pick a and shovel and we will explore the Park. I intend my memory does not fail me to give you the pleasure digging up a she searched a few minutes among the brakes which cd cred a Remote portion the Park and suddenly exclaimed a this must be the place Here is the old Box Wood tree this is the place go to Jacques turned up the ground As she directed and found an Iron bound casket containing the diamonds the late countess de Nives. Some Days before her death foreseeing the ambition or distrusting the Lapa Cious instincts her successor she had confided her secret to an old Gardener and had made him conceal her family jewels in this spot directing him to inform her daughter the hidden treasure at a proper time. The Gardener died a Little while after but his aged wife had shown the place to Marie who had not forgotten it these diamonds were doubly precious As imperishable souvenirs her Mother. However the newly married pair were somewhat straitened in pecuniary affairs during the first year their marriage but they scarcely perceived it. They were Happy they loved Ninie dearly she repaid their Devotion and though until this time Small and delicate she soon took on the plumpness a Skylark in full Corn and the splendor a Rose in full Sunshine. At the return the Fine season i determined to celebrate st. Johns Day with my family it was my wife a birthday for the True name Bebelle was Jeanne. As All the Young people were going to pass the Day with us i arranged a pleasant Surprise by giving them an elegant breakfast at the Tower Perc Emont. Henri had not welcomed the idea shutting himself up permanently on this Rock for its isolation would interfere with our frequent Intercourse but As it was one the favorite goals for our walks i had several rooms cleared up and furnished particularly an elegant dining room where the table was set on a carpet imitating Rose leaves different colors. This Tower Perc Emont was still a source pleasure to my wife who liked to say to her friends with a consequential air a we do not live in it we prefer our own House these things Are Only As for myself i pardoned the old Donjon the slight vexations it caused me. I had obtained there the greatest Success my life a Success gained by persuasion. It had decided the happiness my children As Well As that poor Little Leome who deserved to be loved the sacred right children. All my dear guests met there once More in the enjoyment a happiness that was touching to behold. Some letters were brought to me at dessert. The first one i opened was a letter announcing the marriage the countess Alix de Nives with m. Stuart on an englishman Hump hacked and rickety but Worth millions. I had met him in Paris when i was a Young Man and he had then reached maturity. Our inconsolable widow had undertaken to take care him with the Hope inheriting his Fortune in a Short time. A nah a cried Madame Ormonde in consternation a she is Richer than i am she will take Ninie away from me a a i o not be uneasy a i said a that which is Good to take is Good to keep. Madame Alix will soon be a widow and Ninie would vie a restraint upon her in marrying for the third the a end essay morning. May 2, 1877. Is an upper chamber Coton Ilfin Ogden s undertaking establishment in Elizabeth costs burial casket Kloh from its who desired my to construct a coffin cording to designs she would furnish. The councilman asked his visitor for whom it Wao intended. Miss Mayo unabashed replied for herself. The undertaker was astounded and imagined that she was joking. She however Drew upon paper the outlines a coffin different in shape from any he had seen and told him Liat such was her fancy and that when completed she Woald pay for it. Or. Ogden saw that the coffin was to resemble a Keystone Broad at the head and tapering to the foot. The undertaker accepted her plan intending however to wait for further developments before beginning the coffins construction. A Short Lifie afterwards miss Mayo gave positive orders to make the coffin. One his employees or. Reeves took the measure the eccentric woman and she departed. As it was stipulated that the coffin should be metallic and Peculiar workmanship or. Ogden took miss mayors drawing and plans to undertakers in this City. Their workmen were puzzled at first and it required considerable time and labor to Start the thing. At the end two weeks however All the difficulties were overcome and the coffin was completed. It is Iron is grained to represent Oak is six feet in length by Twenty four inches in Width and in shape resembles a Wood choppers wedge although designed to appear in the shape a key Stone. The lid bears a raised Cross extending from the head to the lower extremity. The Interior is lined with the finest Pearl coloured Satin and there is a Pillow the same material resting immediately beneath the head the Cross. When it was shipped to Elizabeth miss Mayo was in Ormed its arrival and she hurried to get a glimpse her new treasure. She examined it thoroughly and expressed herself As Well satisfied with it except in one or two exceptions. These were the handles at the ends and the silk buttons Pinio Ning the cushioned Satin inside. At her request they were removed and the coffin remains subject to her orders. She has visited it several times unaccompanied by any her friends and on each occasion has stood before it in deep meditation now smoothing Down the Pillow dusting the Satin upholstery with her handkerchief or measuring it mentally As anxious to ascertain whether or not it would prove capacious enough for its purpose. Many have viewed it and have been astounded upon being informed for whom it is intended. Miss Muyo says that she intends to retain it until her death and requests that her body be Laid in it beside that her father in st. John s episcopal churchyard in Elizabeth. She is thirty years age is amiable and Rich and devotes much her time to deeds Charity. Her father Edward Mayo owned a Large property in Richmond which is still held by the family. Her aunt is the wife general Scott. Edward Mayo was in Rich in a Mummy casket which conformed As nearly As possible to the shape the human form. This probably suggested miss mayors whim.

From the san Antonio Texas Herald not so very Long ago there arrived at san Antonio a gentleman from a Large town on the Railroad Between Here and Galveston. He put up at one our hotels and displayed a tremendous appetite. At the end the week he expected to be presented with his Bill but no Bill was presented although he had no Luggage at All. Time went on and still no Bill. The landlord treated him with lofty Courtesy As did the waiters. One night however he did not return to the hotel and the next morning the landlord hired a detective who hunted and found him. The stranger thought tie landlord was going to have him put in jail for swindling or something else and he Felt very much alarmed about it. But no. The landlord was As pleasant As Ever. He asked the stranger what he had done that he should desert his hotel in that Way inquired whether the waiters had offended him and finally begged him to return to his Liot Fel once More promising to furnish him with oysters or any thing else he might wish. The stranger was astounded. He told the landlord that he pay his Board. The landlord replied that he did not want any Board and finally extorted from the stranger the Promise to return to the hotel. After a few Days the stranger took the landlord aside thanked him with tears in his eyes and asked him Why he was so anxious for him to eat at that hotel free charge. A ill Tell you a was the Cpl a i done to care a cuss for you personally but since you have been eating Here i Piave had forty More tests to dinner than i Ever had before a hey come Here for no other purpose than o look at you eat you eat so Hearty.

He entered the River before Sunrise for that purpose in the highest spirits and after performing Liis ablutions he sat on the Bank to perform Pooja. Soon afterwards he was noticed to be motionless. On his followers approaching him they found that life was extinct. An express was sent to the capital and orders arrived to postpone tie funeral rites to March 1st. The three principal ranges his brother and son arrived and the ranges expressed their desire to sacrifice themselves. The brother tried to dissuade them but to failed and the funeral pyre was prepared with Sandal Wood resin and a Large Quantity ghee. When the arrangements had been made the ladies bathed performed Pooja and made presents to the Brahm ids. The next step was they took measures for the government the country and to maintain peace then funeral directions were Given to the brother a Law. Their last was to release some prisoners. They then entered the funeral pyre quite unconcern edly muttering prayers. The Corpse was then Laid on its pack and the eldest Ranee took his head in her Lap and the two others took the feet. They were then surrounded by odorous combustibles and the ranges gazed upon the features their husband As forgetful every other consideration. The fire was then applied by his son and All was Over in a few minutes. A Kins we hide the feet paupers. King Alfonso who recently made the tour Spain on his arrival at Seville signified his desire to conform with the traditional custom on holy thursday for Kings to Wash the feet twelve aged paupers and then to attend on them at a sumptuous table Laid out at the expense the Crown. Referring to this fact a correspondent writes a about two Hundred persons alone had been invited to witness this scene in the Hall the ambassadors. The old moorish Alcazar is very Beautiful and its patios and principal courts have been restored in the style originally designed from the arabic models. The doors the ceilings the pavements and the Light airy architecture carry you Back to the Days the old conquerors Andalusia though modern innovations mar the splendor every part the Structure. In the Hall the ambassadors a High table had been raised for the old men. And facing it was a platform for Queen Isabella and the Infantas. They soon appeared dressed in Jale Blue silk with Long White lace in Antil As. The crowd pressed Forward despite the efforts the Halberdier and the servants the Royal household. A in that moorish court were assembled the very elite Sevil Lan society and at least half those present were faces Well known in Madrid. The ladies All wore the Black or White Mantilla and uniforms were not scarce. When the King appeared surrounded by the officers the household and by the Gold keys the neatest trouble was to get a glimpse Over the air occupants the front rank. By dint perseverance we secured a Corner and witnessed the Kings part in the ceremony. After a Short prayer said by the archbishop Clad in Fine vestments Gold and embroidered Satin his majesty went through the operation washing tie feet the poor who were led to the table by the chamberlains and Equer Ries. They handed King Alfonso the dishes Laden with meat bread and fruit which the Young Monarch set before his Agea subjects with a Ood Humoured smile. Several times indeed health employment. The following instructive table was prepared by direction the Massachusetts legislature showing the average duration life in the various professions and trades men unemployed 68 years judges 65 Farmers 64 Bank officers 64 Coopers 58 Public officers 57 clergymen 56 shipwrights 55 hatters 54 lawyers 54 rope makers 52 blacksmiths 51 merchants 51 Calico printers 51 physicians 61 butchers 50 carpenters 49 masons 48 traders 46 tailors. 44 jewellers 41 manufacturers 43 Bakers 43 painters 43 shoe makers 43 mechanics 43 editors 40 musicians 39 printers 38 machinists 36 teachers 34 clerks 34 operatives 32. Similar tables prepared in England show that after the country gentlemen members the clerical profession live the longest. A suggestive distinction also appears in the longevity Between clergymen the established Church and dissenting ministers. The Berlin Gorilla is going to London for a Short season. His name is Pongo and he is the Only gentleman Liis race in Europe. His education has been completed at the Berlin aquarium. He drinks Claret and water turns Handspring swings on a trapeze Drums on the floor chases a Little dog and behaves like a gentleman. His manners Are very Graceful especially when he has occasion to drink wine with his Little Cousin the Chimpanzee. Pongo looks like a Little coloured boy and Liis hands Are quite soft and pretty.

A Young bed Ridden woman has lately had an interesting experience with a Large rat. She resided with her Mother and two Sisters in a couple Humble apartments in nether Liverpool. On account the efforts her Mother and Sisters to support their Home the invalid was frequently left alone for hours. When All was quiet a huge rat first made his appearance through an aperture in a closet. Tic sick girl having no fear rodents threw some crumbs from her table but for several Days the big rat declined and ventured no further than a Heads length beyond the Hole. Finally he took courage and rushed out for the morsels thrown by the feeble hands still he made As Little delay As possible until the time had grown Ripe for a closer acquaintance. The invalid gradually induced Liis rat ship to make nearer Vanees and lie began to linger after the daily meal and gambol about the floor until tie first strange footstep fell upon the threshold and then he was off like Flash. Then it became one the poor sick girls whims to have her rates daily portion specially Laid by and the fleece looking and anomalous pet at length was coaxed to run up the Side the table and nibble his dinner beside his kindly mistress. Even then he could not be induced to stay the most Stealthy Footfall were heard near the door the Only Way in which outsiders could watch his movements was through the Little windows on the top the door. At last he permitted himself to be fondled without offering any treacherous resistance and the sick girl had not the least fear him. He was never heard at night nor were there any other rats about the premises. Then the feeble hand could serve the strange pet no longer nor could the poor girl be left alone Long enough to assure the tame rodent that it was Safe to Como out. She died and All other efforts to Call him out his Hidin place were unavailing. The sick girl Hult bad him in a tame condition for nearly six months.

When King Alfonso surrounded by his grandees and officers and escorted by the Halberdier crossed tie court they Yard to repose before the procession hour came on he appeared rather science extraordinary. Or. Darwin in writing on the a absence White color in animals a mentions poisonous Plant growing in Virginia which kills White haired Swine but does not kill those with Black hair. Or. Ogle says in explanation this fact that there is no evidence that the Black Swine eat the Plant and that As a matter fact the White Swine because they Are not supplied with a certain Black pigment necessary to the Possession taste and smell Are deficient in both tastes and a re therefore unable to discriminate Between poisonous and non poisonous plants. They therefore eat poisonous plants which the Black pigs with better taste refuse to eat. A correspondent the scientific american writes to say that he does not know any thing about the effects poisonous plants on the pigs Virginia but that there is a poisonous Plant in Florida upon which Black hogs fatten while those with White hoofs after eating it become lame and their hoofs drop off. He says that a a hog has three Black Hooft and one White the White one will fall off a and leaves us to conclude that the Black hoofs will stay on. These hog stories have now advanced far enough to make it Worth while for some one to make very sure the facts before undertaking to explain them. A Short time since a ver upward Twenty feet in length was y Fine Anaconda length was purchased Fox the zoological society in London. During its few weeks residence in the gardens it Lias refused food it having evidently fed shortly before its capture. On monday april 2d, it produced two dead Young about eighteen inches in length. Unlike its near ally the Python which lays the eggs and then surrounds them with the coils its body which rises to a High temperature during the process incubation. The Anaconda produces its Young alive the eggs being apparently broken during the deposition. These two Young Are evidently Only the precursors Many More and it is to be hoped that the remainder will be produced alive. The Long interval Between the meals these animals is strikingly shown. At the present time in the same Cage with the Anaconda is a reticulated Python which had not fed for seven months having during the period changed its skin. For the accommodation his the space allotted is four feet for hon self and two feet for each other bulls arrive and soon the entire a a rookery is taken up or a a squatted upon. The water front is the most Choice location As these a sitting bulls have the first pick the cows As they arrive. The cows come in three or four weeks later. In the meantime the a a bulls pass away their time in fighting for the Best location where they can gobble a up the females. A Bull May locate a Choice water lot and be driven hence to the background by a later and stronger arrival and thus lose his pick the incoming female unless he is prepared for a series fights the weaker Seal retires to the background the rookery and contents himself with such females As Are left. Tenor fifteen cows Are the average bulls harem which is about the mormon average in Utah. The bulls under three years age which have not yet attained the age puberty Are compelled to retire fur into Tho background where they generally Lay by themselves or else arc not permitted to land at All and remain off the Shore cavorting around on general principles. They thus make themselves useful As Well As ornamental in escorting the females to the Shore where the older bulls commence fighting Over their to session lust the same As humans do. Only with this difference frequently they bite and tear to pieces the female while with us the females escape unscathed and the two combatants get the worse it. Generally a female prefers her mate the last season not believing in a variety she climbs an overhanging Rock barks aloud and then stops As listening for the familiar voice her mate. Probably some other Bull comes along and drives her to his harem where she will remain. While he is after this cow so Fine other a a Bull has approached his harem and driven off one his cows. Then the Row commences. Tie two bulls in a pitched Battle lacerate and mangle each other to a fearful degree with their tasks. Often one returns to his harem with the hide his frontispiece torn and gashed and an Eye out As he had been to a democratic primary. By Tho Middle july the females have All arrived and the rookeries holding three or four millions Are literally alive with a Barking pandemonium seals. Two or three Days after the arrival a female she gives birth to a a a Pup Seal weighing about Nix pounds and twelve to fourteen inches Long. By the Middle september the Little m which Are then a month or six weeks ave Learned to swim and a general Regira takes place the rookeries Are deserted and the seals Are traversing the fathomless oceans. How seals Are killed. But before the general breaking up Camp takes place Many have been killed and it is done in this manner the seals most desirable for the skin Are the males Between three and five years age. They Are two or three times larger than the females consequently the skins Are the most valuable. Besides the females Are necessary for reproduction and far less value than the male As Only a Small portion the skin could be used at All. The old seals compel the Young Bucks to retire into the background beyond the Breeding rookeries. Being thus separated from the Breeding females it is an easy matter to single out the males. The younger females Are easily distinguished from the Young Bucks by their proportionate size and color. The natives ten or fifteen in a gang under a Leader each armed with a Long heavy club hard Wood stealthily get Between the dozing seals and the Beach cutting off their Retreat. They then raise a terrific Hullabaloo which frightens the seals and they then drive ont from Tho main body droves from 1,500 to 2,000 seals. The seals seeing that they arc unfairly cornered Rise up in their majesty on their tails and quot lobe or Waddle along like a fish out water. They Are then brought into in arching order by the natives and Are driven like hogs to the killing ground several Miles away. A Seal ordinarily travels a half mile an hour. He does not walk hut rather a globes a which system locomotion is accomplished by doubling himself rearing on his tail and then flopping Over. Can be driven a mile an hour but in crowding them too fast a panic occurs and in the scramble some May be killed besides this overheats them and killed in that state their skins Are valueless. These Young Bucks while on the March to death never fight among themselves. Sometimes a female or an old Buck is driven with the rest to the killing grounds but they Are never killed As their skin is Little or no value and they soon find their Way Back to the rookery. When the Seal is Between three and six years old the skin is most marketable so it will be seen that the females and the older Bucks Are As Safe As their lives were insured. Arrivin at the killing grounds they Are herded am allowed to rest and Cool off. They Are then separated into Small squads fifty or so when the natives kill those the Foreman selects and the rest Are let out. A single stroke on the head with their heavy Oaken club crushes the Bones the seals Skull killing him instantly. A knife is then plunged into the seals Chest to bleed it thoroughly and prevent the skin from getting heated. The Seal is then rolled Over on his Back. The aleut with a Long Sharp knife makes one stroke and the skin is Laid open from the neck to the tail and in a minute and a half or two minutes the Seal is skinned. The skins Are then taken to the a Salt House a where they Are Laid in bins hair Side Down on top one another after being Well salted. In a couple weeks they Are bundled two in a bundle hair outward ready for shipment. These skins weigh six to ten pounds each. Many ladies Are under the mistaken impression that the cute Jacques worn by them Are just As taken from the seals body. In this they Are mistaken As in Many other thing. The skin taken from the animal would not prove very attractive in their eyes for the Beautiful fur is concealed a mastiff coating Dull Brown grizzled hair. The raw skins bring about $8 to $10 each but when dressed bring from $20 to $35 each. So you see there is a vast diff Renoe in the Beauty and value Sealskin. Three or four them make a lady a sack and Bow costing from $150 to $300�?a Good Square months wages. The skins Are shipped to san Francisco where a Revenue duty $2 62h>9 paid the government. They Are then shipped to London where they Are dressed Ana properly coloured the Art which known to article As. For instance a surplus at Tural produce old carts old plows Ana even old and invalid slaves As Cato recommends the land owner to do.
