The Second Year
Somo families spenl ua mucli for
bear as for milk. Uuth could-
n't change- tbat practice, but she
dill muke i hem more careful where
they boughl tholr milk—especially
when thero was a baby in the house,
Then, too, she shared all lier secrets of
where and how to buy cheaply. Sometimes ndvantago was taken of those
hints, imi more often not, They dld-
n'l pay milch more fur many articles
ih.hi she dill, Imi thoy didn't get as
good quality, However, as long as
ih.' food lasted good ami satisfied
tholr hunger you couldn'l make them
take nn extra effort and get stuff because ii was iiiii!*'" nutritious or moro
healthful. Thoy couldn't think ahead
oxccpl in Hn- matter of Bavltlg dol-
Inrs and cents.
Theso people, of course, wero of lhe
lowor class, There was another demon! ol' decidedly liner quality. Giuseppe, for example, was ono of these
nml ihoro woro hundreds of Dthors.
it was among those thai Ruth's Influence counted for the most. They
not only took advantage of her superior Intelligence in conducting their
households, bul ihey breathed in
something of tho soul of hor. When
l saw ihem send for her In their-
grief and In their Joy, wh.-n I hoard
them ask her advice with almost tho
confidence wilh which Ihey prayed,
when I heard them give her such
names as "the angel mother," "the
blessed American saint," J fell very
proud and very humble. Such things
made me glad In another way for
the change which had taken her oul
of the old life where sueh qualities
were lost and brought her down here
where they counted for sn much.
These people si ripped of enliven timi
live with their hearts very near the
surface. They don'l try to conceal
very quickly Into close touch with
Hi. in. Ruth herself was a good deal
like that and so her Influence for a
day among them counted for as much
as  a   yenr   With   the   old   ei'nWil.
in the meanwhile i resumed my
night school nt the end of tho summer
vacation and was glad lo get back
to It. I hud missed the work and
went al it this next winter with increased eagerness i*> perfect myself
in my trade.
During this second year, too, 1 never
relaxed my efforts to keep my gang
up to standard and, whenever possible, to heller ii hy the addition nf
new nun. Kvery month 1 thought
I   increased  the  -"Sped  of the  men  for
ni<- by my lair dealing with them. I
iinui mean to say I fully realized the
expectations of which 1 had dreamed.
I suppose that al lirsl I dreamed a
tiit wildly, There was very little sentiment in tho relation of th.- m< n to
me. although thero was sume. still, 1
don'l want to give the Impression that
i made them a gang of blind followers
such as some religious cranks get together, ii was necessary to make them
st-f ti);ii it was for their interest t«.
work for me and wiih me and lhat 1
did do. I made them see also lhat in
order to work for me they had lo
work    a    litlle    more    faithfully    than
thoy worked for others, So ii was
a Straight Inisiness proposition. What
Sentiment there was como thruugh the
personal Interesl I look in them outside i.r their work, li was this which
made tbem loyal instead of merely
hard working. It was ihis which
made ihem my gang instead of Cork-
ery's gang—a thing that counted for
a   good   deal   later   on.
The personal reputation 1 had won
gave me now opportunities of which
I took every advantage this second
yenr. It put uu- In touch wilh tin
responsible heads ..f departments.
Through thom I was aide to acquire
a much broader ami more accurate
knowledge of lho inisiness as n whole.
1 asked iih many questions la-re as
I nad below. I received mnre Intelligent answers and was able lo uuder-
stand Ihem more Intelligently. I nol
only learned prices, hut where to get
authoritative prices, As far as possible I mnde myself acquainted with

firms whose specially was lhe tearing down nf buildings, 1 used tny

II was in llie spri ig thai sume of

alderman from our Wi rd died suddenly

"Vou  mean city contracts?" I said.
I began to see. The liquor house

Dan with sueh capital hack of him

he should let such an opportunity drop

This wns where the difference lietween

what was the old sleek doing tu oft-

W I ■ tslcr, too, now that we had fallen
ml., a familiar routine, Tlie thlngH
whhh   luul   seemeil   tn   us   like   neces
sities when we came down here now
seemed like luxuries. And we none
of us had either the craving for luxuries ur the time to enjoy them had we
wished lo spend the money on them,
lu the mutter of clothes we eared for
nothing except to be warmly and
cleanly dressed. Strip the problem
of clothes down to this and It's not a
very serious one. To realize tliat
you've only to remember how the average farmer dresses or how the homesteader dresses. It's unly when you
Introduce style and the conventions
that the mutter becomes complicated.
I'crimps it was easier for mo to dress
as 1 pleased than for the hoy or Ruth,

a simple blue suit, a cap, Btocklngl
and slines were all he needed outside
his underclothes whicli Uuth made
fnr him. Ruth herself dressed in plain
gowns that she could do up herself.
For ihe street, she still had ihe costumes she came down hero wilh. None
of us kept any extra clothes for parade.
We carried oui the same Idea in
our food, as I've tried tu show; wo
Insisted tliat il must he wholesome and
that there must 1 nough of ii.   Those
win* ibe only two things lhat counted. Variety except of ilu- humblest
kind, we didn't strive for. I've seen
conk honks which contain live hundred pages; if Ruth compllod one it

the farmer and lhe pioneer wen- our
models. If anyone in lhe country
had lived lh" way w<* wen* living, il
wouldn't have seemed worth tolling
about, I Utul tho fad which amazes
people In our experiment was that we
should have tried ihe same standard
In the cily. Everyone seems tu think
this was a uiosi dnngorous thing to
attempt. 'I'he men whn mi a camping trip consider themselves well fed
on such food us we had lo eat expect
lo starve to death if placed on the
same diet ome wil hill sound of the
trolley cars. And on the camping trip

We camped out In the elty—that's
all we did. And we did just what
every man in camp does; we stripped
down tu essentials. We could have
lived on purk scraps and potatoes if
Unit had heen necessary. We eould
have worried along on hard tack and
jerked heel" if we'd heen pressed hard
enough. Men chase moose, and climb
mountains and prospect fur gold un
such food. Why in Heaven's name
can't ihey shuvel dirt on the same
So, too, aboul amusements, When
a man is trying to clear thirty acres
of pine stumps, he doesn't fret at the
end ul the day because he can't go
to Un- theatre. lie doesn't want t*>
go. Hod ami his dreams art* amusement enough for him. And he isn't
called a low-browed savage because
he's satisfied wilh this. He's called
a hero. The world at larwo doesn't
say that he has lowered the standard
of living; ll boasts about him for a
true American. Why can't a man
lay brick! without the theatre?
As a mailer of fact, however, we
could have had even tin* amusements
If we'd wanted them. For those who
needed such things in order tn preserve
a high standard of living they were
here. And I don't say tbey didn't
serve a useful purpose. What I do
sny Is that Ihey aren't absolutely necessary; ihat n high standard of living isn't altogether dependent on sirloin steaks, starched collars and music
halls, as I've heard a good many people claim.
This third year finished my course
lu masonry, i come nut in June with
a t ro de at wli Icli I coii hi earn from
tin  dollars to five dollars a day. according to my skill. It was a trade,
tun, where there was pretty wcnerally
steady employment, a good mason

of a comfortable living, i was told
that uul  west sume men were making

I could draw my own plans fur work
and what was more useful still, do
my wnrk  from the plans of nthers.
By now 1 had also bocomo a fairly

During ihls yeur Dun bought n new
houso and married. We went lo ihf.

half ihe ward thoro. Mrs. Rafferty
was a nice looking girl, daughter uf a
well-to-do Irishman In the real estate
hasincss. She hud received a good
mi Mention In a convent and was altogether a girl Dan enuld ho proud of.
'i'he house was an old-fashioned strue-
ture built by one of the old families

foreign invasion, Mrs. Rafferty had
furnished it somewhat lavishly but
As Uuth and 1 came back that night
"1 suppose If it had been 'Carleton
and Rafferty' I might have had a house
myself hy now."
"I guess it's better as it is, Billy,"
she said, with a smile.
. Of course It was better, but I began to feel discontented with my present position. I felt uncomfortable
at still being merely a foreman. When
we reached the house Ruth and I look
the hunk book and figured out just
what our capital in money waB. Including the boy's savings which wc
could use in an emergency It amounted in fourteen hundred dollars, During the first year we saved one hundred und twenty dollars, which added to the eighty we came down here
wilh, mnde two hundred dollars. During the second year we saved three
hundred and ninety dollars. During
lhe third year we saved six hundred
dollars. This made n iotnl of eleven
hundred and ninety dollars in the
hank. 'I'he hoy had saved more than
Iwo hundred dollars over his clothes
iu lhe last  two years.

i'n ihe casual observer the secrelary

Perhaps also It serves as a spur in
A garter snake was thrown on the
ground some distance from the male

Suddenly, like a (lash, lhe bird raised

and struck Uu* snake fairly on the

followed by aunt lier crushing blow,
which  proved a  finisher.     The prey

Would he aboul $1,000,000 less than in
1009, $1,760,000 less than iu 1006, and
a small  increase over ilu-  figures fur
1010, it is noteworthy thai in no
triennial period wore so many precious
stones imported into tin- States as lu
the years 1909. 1910 and 1911, during
which time precious simies worth
nearly $128,500,000 were brought in.
The nearest approximation of these
figures wns in 1905, 1900 and 1907.
when ilu* Imports totalled $114,806,458.
We can wain sume idea nf the enormous production of diamonds in the
Smith African fields frum the fact that
Hie De Hcers group uf mines has furnished diamonds weighing al least 07,-
000,000 carats and worth more than
., nr $500,000,000. If In
this immense sum we add the value of
the diamonds extracted from the Premier mine, from a number of smaller
independent mines and from those lu
German Smith west Africa, we would
probably have a total nf nearly, if nm
quite, $000,000,0110. The wrcnt and eon-
sisieni demand for diamonds is strlk-
Ingly shown by tlu* risinw prices, notwithstanding ihis enormous production.      Before  these   reach   the   final
customer. When all the costs of cutting aud handling are added, the value
will amount lu about $1,200,000,000.
The diamond, the pearl, the emerald
and tho sapphire are now enjoying
public favor lo the full. Cameos,
which bave nut been in vogue for over
twenty years, are heing revived to
some extent, although not onough to
enable tin- dealers to sell out their old
stocks. Coral is now In ureal favor.
Many necklaces are inipnrted at a wide
range of price, the cost varying from
5 cents to $2,000. Pearls are higher
in value, this boing 'im- both to tho
decreasing fisheries nnd in ihe universally accepted edict thut Hie pearl Is
one uf the richest and at the same time
one nf Ibe lllosl modes! of Jewels;
therefore Hie price has steadily advanced since 1X95. notwithstanding the
depressions of 1907 uml 1910.

That is why children are such friends

of cards, 1 was nne whu aat in. .Martin was another, and two uf Ills best
lumbermen alsu took places at the
table. Then there was a young doctor
frum St. Paul named Waring und a
travelling man whu had been In aud
nround the neighborhood for some
months. He had made many friends
and was popular, helm; a good mixer
and a man of engaging personality.
His name was Doming,
"We began modestly ennugh. They
didn't play a limit game very much iu
thai part of (he world at that time.
but the practice uf table stakes had
grown up. though we didn't call it by
that name then. The custom was for
ii man lo declare lhe amount he'd play
for and he couldn't be raised beyond
Ihnt.      It came tu the sume thing.

petered out half my money on small
plays Without a winning and then being
caught with a pat Mush against a two
card draw by Doming that resulted In
his getting a full house.
"I was doing fairly well on my second
hundred, though) wben there cume one
of tho unusual deals that sometimes
demoralize a game, if 1 romember; it
was Gallatin, Martin's foreman, who

had the next seat, honsled il $.1.

looked and pushed all his in the pot
nnd Holbrook laid down.
"Martin had caught his fourth king
and touk the pot, but there were two
Hushes and two fulls against him, Naturally we were all excited, hut I didn't
care to lose more, nnd I pulled out uf
the game. The others dug for money
nnd I think all put in us much as they
had, Anyhow, the game was fierce
from that on.
"But Martin's luck held, and his
nerve being always gnnd he pressed

who then enjoyed great nml peculiar

inn though Hie palette of the early
glazier was so rich in quality with
those splendid reds and ineffable blues,
the seerel of which has long been lost,
and other primary colors, it was poor
In extent. To ihls poverty must he
ascribed ihe curious coloring of many
details. Beards ure often painted

Iii fuel the ordinary llesh lint of the

Don't let repairs
eat up your profits
Whether thoy represent actual cash outlay, or
only the time of yourself and your help, repairs
ure waste just the same. When you make an
improvement—no matter how small its cost may
he—let it be permanent. Then it is u real investment, something .rn which you can realize in cash should you decide to
sell your propertyi ami gomcthlng that will pay you constant
dividends in convenience, sightliness and coquort us long an
tlie farm remains youi' own.
Concrete Improvements Are Permanent
They last na long as tie very hills themselves. They do not
require experts io buhd thom, Tlieir lirsl cost, in most eases,
is no more than for inferior materials.
Aren't you interested in tlie subject of permanent, modem
farm improvements'!

their systems of the contents of the
Intestines at birth, known to veterinarians as  the meconeum.     The dry

It Is often seen where every precaution has been taken to avoid it. Undoubtedly, the most favorable condition foi' the mare Is a free run on

is Impracticable, so some precaution is
necessary lo keep her digestive organs

time make It easier for the foal's digestive tract to commence Its normal
functions after birth. The best way
10 prevent the trouble is by feeding
the pregnant mare a considerable
quantity of rather soft food, as scalded bran and oat chop. Raw roots,
turnips, carrots or mangels, fed one or
iwo daily, will be found beneficial,

Despair and hope still wrestled In
his breast. He would like to plan a
little party tn which he und Alice

Impossible. There was always ber
mother to be taken into consideration.
A bold Idea came to him. Unable to
sec Alice during the evening he hunted
up Mrs. Tracy, did his best to please
her with subtle flattery and Anally
suggested: "I'm giving a little birthday party at the Cremone this week. I
would so like to have you and your
daughter come."
"I'm afraid it would be Im—"
"I'm Inviting Mr. Spooner, Miss For-

"1 am afraid It will be Im—impossible to resist such an Invitation," Mrs.
Tracy adroitly altered her reply ut tho
mention   of Spooner.
"Then 1 shall count on you?"
Howard hastened io secure spooner,
using Miss Tracy's name as ball, and

"This Is particularly good." the girl
answered, gathering several of the alphabets on her spoon aud sipping with
them some of the clear bouillon off

"It Is good," admitted her mother.
Howard glanced nervously at AIU
she   had   dropped   her   eyes   and   was
thoughtfully stirring her soup.
She sipped a second spoonful and
looked straight  Into his eyes.
"To you," she murmured.
Howard dropped his gaze In confusion. He started; pushed back Ids

throat  m-rvously.

There was no applause. He sat down,

"I.el me congratulate you, you've

M. Chavannos is also the mechanic
who constructed a picture numbered

The history ,,f (his little picture Is full
of pathos, The scene Is laid In Newark
Hay, N.J.    A  poor fisherman and his
children go out to spend the day. taking   Huir  lunch   with   them.
"Oo, papa, let us take two or threo
cucumbers with our lunch," suys one
of the children, in Mice.
"Very well, my child." exclaims the
father, with ill-concealed delight. "Go
town to the market and get one for
•neb of us."
Thu artist has chosen to make ids
study of tho fisherman a short time
after lunch. The father Is engaged In
regretting something which It Is now
too luto to recall. Cholera Infantum
has overtaken the younger child, and
the other is gathering lobelia for her
father. The picture Is wonderful In its
conception and execution. One can sec
that he is u poor fisherman, for he has
not caught any fish, and the great
agony ho feels Is depleted In his face
and thp attitude of his hair. The picture might have been called a buttle
piece or a French Interior, with equal

No. 128, "plana Surprised," is no
doubt the hesl picture in the whole collodion, The mil and bonutlful figure
of Diana in (lie middle distance, in Hie
act of being surprised, is well calculated lo appeal to any one with a tender
hearl or a few extra clothes. Diana
has just been In swimming with her
entire corps de ballet, and nn coming
oul of the water is surprised to find
that someone has stolen her clothes.
The artist has very happily caught the
attitude and expression at tlu- moment
when she is about to offer a reward
for them.The picture Is so true to life
that   I   instinctively  stummered,   "Ex-
ie me," and got behind the artist
who was with me. The figures arc life
size und the attitudes are easy and
graceful In the extreme. One very
beautiful young woman in the middle
foreground, about seven and one-half
inches north of the frame of the picture, with her back to lhe spectator,
roaches at Diana's feel. She has done
her beautiful and abundant hair up in
i graceful coil at the back of her bead,
hut has gone no further with her toilet
when the surprise takes place. The
Idea is lufty and the treatment benefl-
lal, 1 do not know that 1 am using

"We often hear our friends regret
that their portraits, dressed in clothing
that has long since become obsolete,
ire still ln existence, and though the
features are correctly reproduced, the
iistume is now so ridiculous as to Impair the de trop of the picture and mar
its aplomb.
Jules  Lefebvre    has   overcome this
great obstacle In a marvellous manner,
ml gives us Diana nnd her entire staff
surrounded by an atmosphere that time
cannot  cloud with  contumely  or  ob-
ire with ridicule. Had the artist
seen tit to paint Diana wearing a Garibaldi waist and very full skirt with
large hoops and her hair wrapped
round twu or three large "rats," be
might have been true to the customs
nd costumes of a certain period In
the history of nrt, but It would not have
stood the test of time. As it Is he has
wisely chosen to throw about ber a
certain air of hautciir which will look
Just as well in. a hundred years as it
does now.
The picture has a massive frame and
would brighten up one end of a dining-
room very much. I was deeply mortified and disappointed to learn that it
was not for sale. Aeteon Is lhe party

Buildings where pianos are stored
and urned as well ns those where the
Instruments are put together should
be free from vibration. To eliminate
vibrations from structures Is u dlfll-
cult  matter.
ln the spring of lfl-o:,, thirteen years
after thc construction of a New York
building, serious vibrations were observed In llm upper stories, and n
careful examination showed tlmt tlu
building was In excellent condition
without evidences of undue set
tlement or cracks, nnd failed to ills
close reasons for tbe development of
vibrations In lhe building Itself. The
sixth floor of the building wus used as
a shop for cutting brass dies for book
covers, a process in which the principal
plant consisted of routing machines
having rapidly revolving needles about
1-1*8 Inch In diameter which cut designs In soft brass. These machines
bad heen In operation for about twelve
years without causing Vibrations and
were not considered responsible for the
vibrations at this time. The remainder
of (he building was devoted to storage
ami commercial purposes ami light
manufacturing which did not involve
tin* use of machlm-ry.
The vibrations became so serious
that the tenants who had long occupied  the   sixth   story  threatened  to
have, [nvOBtlgatloni mnde by lhe
architect of the building, by engineers
and others showed that there Were
very frequent but not entirely continuous east and west vibrations In Unbuilding which were most noticeable
In the upper story.
After a numlier of unsuccessful attempts had been made for the OWfiers
to explain the vibrations, Daniel K.
Morau was dually retained by Ihe
owners to determine the cause of these
Vibrations, and to BUggeSl remedies.
Maurice DoutBCb, under Mr. Mnrnn's
direction, spent several months making
special Investigations of (he cause and
extent of the vibrations and their
ffecl. Numerous evidences were observed and recorded throughout the
building of the effect of (In* oust nnd
west vibrations, similar vibrations,
but of less degree, were then for the
first lime observed In lhe adjacent
three and lour Story brick buildings
Intervening between it ami the six
story building, Hill feet West of the
Hennerl Huilding. occupied by the
Carey   Printing  Company.    The  wnlls
of these buildings were In contact, thus
providing physical connection lietween
them a .d serving, it was thought, for
tlm transmission of tho vibrations.
Heavy machinery installed on tlie
three upper floors of the Corey Huilding includes twenty-five cylinder bed
presses and one large Howe press.
There were eighteen cylinder bed
presses operating oust and west and
seven operating north and south.
Some of these weighed from six to ten
tons each, and being located close to
the side walls and operating with a
horizontal reciprocating motion produced In Hie walls of the Carey Building east and west vibrutions which
wore successively transmitted east-
wardly through tlie other buildings and
apparently Increased until they became
a maximum in the Gennert Building.
Vibrations were not noticed in the
Gennert Building until soon after the
installation of the Carey printing
plant, Tho building at til Fifth Ave,
which is separated from thc west sido
of tin- Carey Building by a court about
six feet wide, experienced absolutely
nu vibrations, The vibrations in th*'
adjoining small building caused the
falling i'i' glassware, ele, and loose _
bricks and mortar in ihe chimneys and
loosened masonry and timber in the
upper stories.
After Information of tlo- operation ol
the Caroy printing plant had been requested and  roftiBcd, a  machine was
devised   alld   pl.ieed   on   l|,r  Md"   Wall  Of
ihe (jeimei'i lJulliHng in lite upper story
lo register vibrations automatically and
record lb.- OXttCl Ullle of their occurrence. Tlie records of this machine
were made entirely without knowledge
of thi' details of tin- machinery Instnll-
ed in the Carey Huilding or of the periods in which this machinery w is In
operation. Tiny showed periods of
sovere vibration, of moderate vibration
and of no vibration. None of them apparently iiad any relation to the operation of machinery in the Gennert
Building or to the passage of heavy
trucks In the street. The records of
Sundays when the Carey plant was not
In operation showed no vibrations.
During the period of Investigutiori**.
cracks appeared in the wail, and their
measured widtii Increased from 1*16
inch to \ inch and an uneven settlement occurred in the huilding, depressing thc floor adjacent to the side
walls more than in the centre of the
building and causing a perceptible and
injurious longitudinal hog back of the
floors. Bearings of the beams and
girders were impaired and loosened so
that the beams were displaced and .1
considerable quantity of the masonry
was disintegrated.
Legal proceedings to prevent the
vibrations wen* commenced, and after
the evidence had been pre-em.-*... ■
friendly lest suggested by the court
was arranged under known conditions
of the operation of tli-} Carey presses
nul showed vibrations in the -J-enner*:
Huilding' when all of the Carey pre^s ■;•-•.
were running ami wh*>n only the east
ind west presses wr** runnm::, < :■
Teased vibration when only four of the
I'ast were running and when only the.
east and west pressi s were running,
ml no vibration when only the
and south printing presses w< rs .n operation.
A  subsequent    * xomlnatlon    •:
cords of the operation of th" Cares
presses, showed that the Independent
iiisirumcntnl records of vibrations :n
the Cennert Building agreed with these
tests and that the vibrations occurred
when the Carey presses were runntng
ml only when they were running. Thi*
vibrations recorded bj the -utrumeni
for several months previous te the
friendly test, when compared with tha
record of operation of presses i.i
brought out by testimony in : . ..-
given by the superintendent of the
Carey plant, were found to agree wtth
the Btortlng .md stopping oi presses,
As the continued vibrations of the
Gennert Building threatened the removal "f its tenants and the serious
Injury or destruction of the building;
it wns proposed to stop them by turning all of the Carey presses north ar.d
BQUth or by cutting a clearance through
the east and west wall adjacent
Carey Building, thus physically He-
connecting the latter from the Gennert
Building. The presses were accordingly moved and the vibrations were
decreased so much that the walls were
not cut.
