ary of Industrial Growth.
ffrom tlic Scientific American.
Among the incidents of tlie recent
celebration iu New York of the one
hundredth anniversary of the inaug
uration ol Washington, the first Presi
dent, perhaps the most remarkable
whs the civic or industrial parade,
which took place May 1, when, it is
estimated, over forty thousand' per
sons, representing the various modern
industries, fell into line and formed a
gigantic procession. The spectators
were uumhered at over one million.
ITudcr the. aboYe heading the New
York Tribuuc gives the following in
“The industrial parade, marvelous
as k has seemed to the men of this
generation, needs for a full apprecia
tion a different point of view. How
would it have appeared to George
Washington and his Revolutionary
associates? What, incomprehensible
and incredible marvels would they
have seen m its machines and inven
tions, its arts and its tools, its princely
expenditure -by voluntary societies of
workingmen, its mirrhty array of well
clad, well paid, and comfortable
workers? If it weic possible to con
trast the industries of 178!), when the
world had lived and learned at least
fifty-eight centuries, with those of
1889, when only one century more
has been added, what a startling con
“It is not possible a new world has
been created. The methods, tools,
products, nud artisans of a century
ago. in many departments li ivo van
ished as completely as if they belonged
to another planet. Whnt has become
of the spinning wheel or the wooden
clock? The suit of woolen clothes
worn by President Washington at his
the country has since moved in a sin
“Volumes could he filled, nud yet
but a small part of the change within
the century -.ould he mentioned. But
the revolution in llic condition of the
laboring population has been the
crowning result of all this pr< gross.
Of wages, it is enough to say that ma
sons a century ago earned 67 cculs a
day in Massachusetts, carpenters 52
cents, blacksmiths 70 cents, and ordi
nary labor 80 cents. Food near the
farms was cheap, blit pork is quoted
hi Massachusetts at. 16 cents per' lb,
Hour at 88.16 per barrel, corn at 76
cents per bushel, and 1mm, at 20 cents
per pound. Calico cost 58 cents per
yard, broad cloth 82.70, buckram 22
cents, cotton cloth 88 cents, and tow
cloth 30 cents;. hose cost 81.35 per
pair, and “corded Nankeen breeches"
85.50; buttons from one to five shill
ings per dozen, shoes of lasting 84
cents per pair, and sugar from 15 to
22 cents per pound. One does not
need to study such figures as these
very long to discover that the world
and the living of to-day were simply
impossible for the working people
century ago. The whole world has
changed, but nowhere has the mar
velous advance been greater or for
the working millions more beneficent
than in these I'nited States.”

DR. PIERCE’S PELLETS
address to Congress iu 1789 was pre- 801 ro " s -
sented by a woolen factory only es
tablished iu the preceding year, and
cloth then cost 85 a yard. The peo
ple were clothed in the homespuu
-made in every family. The power
loom for knit goods was not invented
_ until 1830. In 1789 two citizens of
Norwich asked exemption from poll
tax for themselves and their appren
tices because they had set up eight
stocking frames, which required two
men for each. A century ago wool
cat ding had been done by hand, but
Wbittemore invented machinery to
make cards. The first carnet factory
in the country was established a littls
later. A century ago the cotton giu
had not been invented, the spinning
jenny was yet an experiment, and the
first shipment of cotton to England,
only eight bags, was made in 1784.
Now the country has raised more than
7,000,000 bales of cotton in a year,
and •worked up more than one thous
and million pounds of cotton and four
hundred million pounds of wool.
A century ago only charcoal iron
was produced, and not as much of
that, probably, as 30,000 tous yearly;
“ for twenty years later tho product
was but 53,000. Even Great Brit-*
iau, in 1788, produced only 68,300
tons, not as much us cither one
ot several furnaces in this country
now turn out yearly. The manufac
ture of steel was just beginning her ;
twenty years later only 917 tons were
produced in this country. The coars
est pig iron then cost as much ub steel
rails do now. A single railroad now
buys yearly more iron than this coun
try then made; but there were neither
. railroads then nor iron bridges nor
buildings; no petroleum pipes, for
■ there was no-petroleum; no gas pipes,
for there was no gas lighting even in
’ .Europe until later. Washington lived
in an age of darkness; instead of the
electric light the millions had can
dies, costing about two cents apiece.
_ ‘In nil the departments and applica-
’’ tions of chemistry the century
has simply created a new wor’d. Amer
ican pressed glass, ‘which has com
pletely revolutionized the supply of
ta lie and house ware, is an invention of
the last sixty years Thesilk manufac
ture has not existed iu this country
half a century; the paper made a hun
dred ycarsago would hardly bethought
fit for use since modern methods have
been invented; the only use discover
ed for India rubber then was to erase
pencil marks; nnd while the town of
Lynn made 100,000 pains of hoots and
‘vihoes iu 1788,jthey were not the shoes
' of to-day 1 ,‘and" the manufacture by
■ -machinery is wholly due to inventions
since 1800. Sewing machines for any
purpose were unknown, and salt was
maae by boiling sea water, though, in
1787, it was. first made from the
springs near Syracuse, at the rate of
aliout ten bushels per day-, and the
cost soon fell to 50 cents per bushel.
“Farming iu Washington’s day
knew nothing of machinery; even the
first plow, patented in 1797, was a
failure, for the New Jersey farmers
thought it poisoned the soil. Movers,
reapers and harvesters began to be
invented about the same time, and
even tbe ordinary implements were
such as would not now be thought
possible to use. The steamboat was
practically unknown, and the railroad
entirely, until forty years later, and
tho cost of transportation by waj
confined the area of possible prod
tion with profit, as to most crops,
* the margin of navigable waters. The
'whole nation' could not produce in
Washington’s day as rnpeh tgheat as
single Territories, not yet states, now
export each year, and when tbe ac
counts of a single “vast quantities”
exported, they really mean less than

Twenty-six years ago they came to
the farm, a little east of Brockvillc,
^jiat they now occupy. Of a family
■>f eleven children, ten are living.
The eldest daughter, who married in
Ireland, remained there nnd died a
few yeai sago. Of the seven sons,
James, the eldest, does a large and
profitable plumbing business in Port
land, Alaine; a younger brother,
Henry, acts as his foreman. Another
brother, Albert, carries on plumbing
in Boston. William, another son,
does a large business as a builder in
Georgia, and during the past winter
he has been assisted by his youngest
brother, John. Alexander, another
sou, alsy a carpenter, follows his trade
in the town. Joseph is in the excise
department of the civil service, and
was recently promoted to the Montreal
office. The three daughters are mai-
ried. Mrs. Currie lives at Ottawa,
Mrs. Plunkett at Lausdowuc, and
Mrs. McCormack near the old home.
The grand children number 30. All
the children were present yesterday,
hut three of the sons, who were pre
vented by business engagements.
Mr. and Mrs. Miller received quite
a number of valuable presents from
their chilnren. Mr. and Airs. Aliller
are staunch Presbyterians and have
been connected with St. John's con
gregation since they came to the
country. Air. Aliller lias prospered in
the land of his adoption, and iu addi
tion to his valuable farm he owns
several houses in the town.
The Times unites its congratula

many - friends and join iu the hope
that several y.enrs may he added to
the happv and prosperous ones that
have gone. The members of the family
