A meeting was held at the Town
Hall, Surrey Centre, on Wednesday
evening last, to discuss tbe advisability of forming an ussociation of
the Patrons of Industry. At eight
o'clock the meeting was called to
order, and Major Hornby was appointed to preside. After a few remarks the chairman called upon
Mr. John Olivor, of Delta, to address the meeting upon tbe subject
in band. Mr. Oliver spoke at longth
urging the importance of organization amongst the fanning community, whom, ho said, were at the
mercy of the merchants, dealers,
manufacturers, transportation companies, etc. He referred to what
had been accomplished in Ontario
and elsewhere by organization, and
submitted figures as to the cost of
laying down farm machinery and
implements here which were astonishing, the saving boing from 25 to
50 por cent, on the prices that the
farmers are now paying. The substance of his address was to the
effect that farmers had to buy
cheaper and sell dearer to be able
to make a living, and that the only
way to accomplish this was by or*
After Mr. Oliver had finished, a
general debate took place in which
nearly all present took part.   Mr.

Found   a   Skull*
A few days ago the skull of a
man was found by Mr. W. C. Jones
near, a cabin on his farm, on the
Hall's Prairie road, south of the
Nicomekl. The following particulars are taken from the Colilrtibian:
The property on which the cabin
stands belong! to Mr: Jones and
the first occupant of the shack
planted some currant budhfes there.
It was to remove thtise that Mr.
Jones visited the spot) and while
working among the wild growth in
the old garden he whb horrified to
find a skull lying on the ground
Without loss of time he reported
the matter tb Rfefeve ArmStfdng|
and Dr. Sutherland) of Cloverdale
was also called: Diligent search
failed to find the body to which the
skull belonged, and the conclusion
was reached that the ikull had
been carried there by dogs or wild
animals. Dr. Sutherland gave it
as his opinion that, from the condition of tbe skull, death must have
taken plan* within the ytiar. The
skull wuS completely bereft of skin,
hair and flesh on the outsidk) but
the brains were still in the cavity
though, bf course, sunkfen nnd
purtiulij  decomposed:
To wIicto the skull belongs is a
mystery »* no person half tieen
missing Irom the neighborliobd in
the past I wo yonrs. Capt. l'itten-
drigh wiif notified and gave instructions for .i thorough search for the
body, which, if found) may be identified by be clothing.
Invitations are being extended
to all Mf o.ir young peoplfe to attend
the filial dunce, in connection with
the Langlej Prairie Quadrille Club;
to be held in Riddel and Davison's

Among the many hindrances to
progress which the settler in a new
and gradually  growing country in
population  and   development, has
to contend with is, that individual
labor can effect but little in making
the  land  yield  much more   than
what will supply the daily need oi
himself, and  perhaps his wife and
their young children for the eurliir
years of their life.   And  this especially if their farm is covered with
trees  and   bush,   or   mayhap   be
swampy— conditions which, in this
locality, prevail  more us the rule
than the exception.   How to renu-
dy or ameliorate this disadvantage
is an important consideration.    In
other parts of the Dominion, and
elsewhere, it has been very success"
fullyovercome by a simple arrangement.    The  farmers have agreed
together to combine and help each
other.   They arrange to meet and
clear and fence and plough and
seed and harvest each other's farm,
and aid in all work and labor that
are to be got through according to
the season.     And even the roads
are kept in repair, and in some advanced localities  the farmers are
their oWn insurers against fire, paying so much  a year into a general
fund, Which in case of casualties is
drawn Upon  tn pay the loss, the
balance, or the total sum subscribed
if there lie no casualty, being returned to the subscribers at the end
of the period.    Could not  something of this kind be organised in
this favored  municipality ?    The
advantages of such united action
on the part of ten or more ranchers
would in one year prove of great
benefit   to  those  concerned,   and
many acres of what is now unprofitable land would soon  lie converted  into arable and pasture ; live
stock and farm produce would ho
increased and the means of the family annually augmented, instead "f
the present  tardy   and   wearying
singledniniled course of proceeding,
which, with the small capital avail:
able for the employment oi helpers,
leaves the prospect of a competency
for old age 08 but a very un-atis-
factorjf  factor  for   contemplation.
Many other benefits would be conferred by such co-operation : neighbors would become  more  friendly.
the gobd qualities of the individual
worker would  liecome known, and
the skill  and  judgment   ol   each
member would be utilised  by all
Arrangements     could     be    made
whereby the aggregated number by
Bubscription might procure improved farm implements, and ideas a.-
to the best  methods of cultivation,
draining) seeding, orchard   planting; dairying,  stock   raising,  ami
kindred  subjects  incidental to the
farmer's   lift,   be    communicated
from man to man until a degree of
proficiency is reached which would
ensure success  to all who formed
the mutual-help combination which
is here but touched upon tn  the
most elementary manner.
SURREY Times; the first number
of which has appeared in a highly
creditable form considering the difficulties incidental to such a venture) will doubtless be glad to ventilate' the foregoing subject pro. and

NtJlibn, B. C.) April 8.—Mi rt
shooting was reported yesterday on
the Kootenay river, where tbe re. hi-
matlon company is having trouble
with the Indians. 0. A K":efer
consulting engineer of tbe company
reports that Iht' Kootenay Indians
have driven off all men on the work
by . force of arms. Tbe Indian I
claim that the company is trespass
ing upon lands held by thorn as :•
reserve, that in building dykes the
land they have cultivated for year-
hns been rendered useless, and thu'
they will have their rights even if
they have to fight for them. There1
has been more or less trouble with
the'Kootttinys ever sinr* the com-'
pany commenced operations two
years tigo; but th* government
agent at Xelson lias been able to
quiet them by making special premises. As the Kootenays largely
outnumber the whites there is likelj
to be difficulty that will end in
bloodshed if proper measures ar«
not taken. The Dominion a few
years ago quelled a like outbreak Id
East Kontnay by Binding a detach'
mfnt of mounted police, and the1
present outbreak Jan only bfe quelled
and the Indians„.n'jiiit.et f;,i,respect

Growth »r tlmfleriuun I) cm or racy.
In the middle of the confusion and
wrangling of other parties tho Social
Democrats aro full of activity and of
hope They havo many reasons for their
confidence, For somo years past tho emperor, the political parties, the church,
even Prince Bismarck, havo coquetted
with them more or less, have acknowledged that their aims aro often excellent
and have promised with here and thoro
a qualifying "hut" or "if" to carry them
out an far as is humanly possible. They
aro therefore justified in the hope that
voters whose minds havo been trained to
hear them with attention by this general
chorus of approval will be tho more disponed to listen to promises which are rot
qualified by "ifs" and "buts."
Then the Social Democrats ore well
organized and know both what they
want and how they propose to obtain it.
Thene aro great advantages to a political
party in all countries, but are more particularly no among the Germans, whose
natural instinct it istoobcyordersand to
march in file, even when they are in ro-
voll. It is therefore quite possible that
the Social Democrats may double their
numbers at the next election, and it will
not be surprising if that estimate is surpassed.—London Saturday Review.

The Belgian postofBce is about to issue
what in called a special S'lnday stamp.
It will be A 10-centime (2-ecnt) stamp
and at one end will have a little flap.
Thin can be torn off or left intact nt the
user's will and will carry in French nnd
Dutch these words: "Ne pas livres le
diinancbc." "Niut bestellen op zontag,"
which means in English, "The postman
is not to deliver on Sunday the letter
bearing this stamp."
This novelty is intended to start a
popular agitation against Sunday government work in Belgium, which is to
be stopped if possible in tho future.
It is said that a large number of people
will post letters unnecessarily on Sunday mornings in order to give expression
to their sentiments.
It will be interesting to hear how
many of these stamps aro used.—Cour*

A Slum Without a Mllltla.
Delaware will soon bo without a slato
militia. This condition of nlfairs has its
origin in Ihe adverse action of tho state
legislature as to an appropriation needed
for tho support or tho national guard in
that diminutive but prosperous commonwealth. As soon as the legislature
defeated the militia bill every officer
and enlisted man in tho admirable and
well disciplined littlo forco voted to disband, and they aro now engaged in carrying their convictions to u conclusion
t'"it is, while personally creditable, most
discreditable to Delaware. It may even

to mo that a government which makes a

government upon whose honor it Is safe
to rely in a question of extradition."

Lust, though not leant, was a solitary
prissenger, who soon became the pot of all
on hoard. He was a mun of i!8, with a clear
complexion, a lung beard and a silky mustache, Ills name was Reginald May. His
reason for taking the sea voyage was the
delicate state nf his health.
There was not the least doubt that the
poor fellow's chest was considerably affected, for his voice, though charmingly sweet,
was one of the weakest I ever heard; besides, its liollowness suggested consumption. He always wuro a muffler round bis
Iu all my wide experience I never knew
any one with so many friends and such undivided esteem in so short a time as Reginald May. I believe there was not a sailor
on board who did not entertain the warmest possible liking for him. As for the
passengers, they never seemed so happy as
when listening to bis amusing auecdotes, of
which beseemed to possess an inexhaustible store. And thisdelicate young Kuglish-
niau had made his conquest over all our
hearts before we hud been three weeks at
He was, too, very clever with his hands.
He could shape you anything out of a piece
of wood, from an oyster to nn elephant, and
at making models of ships I never met his
equal.   lie was besides most kind nnd con*
j siderato   toward   his   fellow  passengers.
When the three elderly gentlemen who im-
I agined their fortunes made were afflicted
. with seasickness, he was the first to offer to
help them about while they slowly recov-
I ered.   Ho would Insist on their taking his
I arm, weuk as ho was himself, and ho would
lead them about 0:1 deck with a firmness
that spoke well for his sea legs.
I do not remember any voyage ever passing so quickly as the one when the pleasant
passenger was on board, I could heremake
a long pauso to dwell on tbe pleasant memories I still entertain of that young man.
Wo were within a week's sail of Melbourne. May had nil but completed his
model of tho Janet's Pride, which he purposed presenting to me on the night before
we landed. He worked on the model on
deck, choosing for his table an empty wnter
cask under theshelterof the bulwarks. Ho
was always nt work lu the morning long
before any of the other passengers turned
out of their snug berths.
As I have stated, we were but a week's
sail from Melbourne. For the first time
the jovial passenger appeared at the dinner table with a solemn face and silent
tongue. I asked him the reason for thu
change in bis wonted cheerful manner. At
first lie tried to evade my queries, but I
pressed htm until I won from him an explanation.
"Perhaps, after all, it is only fair that X
should explain a little," he answered. "Thu
fact of the matter is, my friends, that my
watch has been stolen."
"Stolen 1" wo all cried.
"Undoubtedly, Hut, I pray you, captain," ho raid, turning to me, "not to say
ono word about it. Thu only thing that
rentiers tho loss of it of consequence to mo
Is the fact that it was once my mother's.
On that account I would nut havo lost It
for any amount of money. However, it Is
useless to cry over spilled milk, us the old
adage has it."
"If the watch is In this ship, we ought to
find It," I said.
"My dear captain, If you will leave tho
matter entirely In my hands, I think I may
recover it. This request I am sure you will
oblige me by granting."
"Why, certainly, my dear sir," I said,
"but still"	
"Exactly," bo interrupted, with his pleasant smile. "You would like to Investigate
the case to the utmost of your power, I
know, my dear captain. But I can trust
you to keep your promise and leave the
thing entirely In my hands, cannot If"
How could I refuse him?
You may readily imagine what consternation this event gave rlsu to among tbe
other passengers. The threo old gentlemen
at onco began to explain that they owned
jewelry to the value of £400, which they
usuallyXepKlacked uojn a brown .leather
writing case, but unfortunutdy at thepiu.
eut time tlio lock was out of order.
Mr. May suggested a safe deposit foi
their valuables,
Tho young married couples nnnounccd
the fact of their having at least A"J00 worth
of jewelry, and they, too, consulted Mr.
May as to the safest place for secreting It.
Tho kind hearted brother and sister had,
it appeared, more valuables lu tho way of
jewelry than any ono on board, since £1,500
had never purchased what they possessed.
Tho whole evening was occupied in speculating as to the probable perpetrator of
tho theft nnd in condoling with Mr. May
on his loss. Every one turned In that night
]u an uneasy state of mind, and it was with
astonishment that they found themselves
iu tlio morning in full possession of their
Worldly goods. Tills improved condition
of affairs Boomed to roassuro our passengers,
who at onoo again began to look cheerful
and ut ease.
Reginald May's faco wore its wonted
smile, and as heretofore ho charmed nnd
enlivened us with his vtvueily and auecdotes. All the day long he worked on the
model of tho ship, st ill using the top of thu
empty water cask for a worktahlo.
That night, wo retired to rest with minds
far more at ease than on the previous one.
Alasl What a scene of danger and distress
camu with the morning! Every passenger
on board owning jewelry had been robbed
during the night.
The three old gentlemen, the young married couples and tbu kind hearted brother
and sister found themselves minus every
article they possessed. Even (lie grumbling
old gentleman had lost his gold snuffbox.
There was no keeping matters quiet this
time. The thief must be traced and brought
to justice. What was thu wisest, method of
procedure?   What would Mr. May suggest f
"I would suggest, though most reluctantly, that every sailor and every sailor's luggage bo carefully searched," he said.
I   "I ngreu to see to that," I remarked.
I    "This," he continued, "must be most humiliating to the feelings of your eruw, captain, and therefore, lu common fairness to
them usourfcllowmcn, let mu suggest that
i every passenger's luggage lie also l borough-
ly searched."
A little hesitation on the part of one or
two of the passengers was shown before
acceding to the lust proposal, bat our
pleasant passenger soon contrived to bring
I those who lirst. demurred to his way of
"Of course, there is not a passenger on
bnurd who is not. above suspicion," he said;
"yet, in justice to the feelings of tho crew,
it is the least we can do."
'    This delicate feeling and t bought fulness
on the part of Mr. May rendered him moru
pleasing ia our eyes than ever.
I     Many of the crew objected strongly to Is'
Ing searched, bat all were compelled to
submit.   Tbe old boatswain was wild with
anger, and vowed that if it cost him his
life he would trace the thief who caused
i him to bo searched like a common pickpocket. Even the pleasant passenger utterly failed to soot he Ids deep sense of injury.
Well, a thorough search was made by myself and thu kind hearted old gentleman
and his sister. Every one's traps weru ransacked from top to bottom without success.
Further search was useless. What was to
be done?
That night, nil having been made snug
and every one having turned in, I went on
deck, it being what wo call at sea "the caj>-
tain's watch." About 4 o'clock lu the
morning I turned in, thu second officer then
coming on duty. My cabin was situated
amidships on deck, ami from my windows
I could Bee to larboard and startioard und
from stem to stern.
Somehow I could not rest, ho dressing
myself, I determined to sit up and smoke.
I drew aside my curtains and looked out.
It was the gray light of the early morning,
and there was a stiffish breeze blowing.
To my groat surprise 1 beheld Reginald
May on deck. I was about to open my
cabin door and Invite him to join me in my
unrest, when the peculiar nature of his proceedings riveted my attention. He looked
timidly around as if afraid of attracting
observation. Then suddenly, as if the
coast was clear, ho walked rapidly toward
tho empty water cask on which he was accustomed to manufacture bis model of the
ship. Once more glancing cautiously about
him bo then applied his hands to the cask,
and with a rapid movement lifted half the
top bodily off.
My astonishment and excitement were
intense. Another hasty glance, around,
and he put his hand down into the cask,
then quickly withdrew it, holding In his
grasp a small bag, which he rapidly concealed in tho breast of his coat. Ho again
took a hasty survey and was about making
another dive into the strange receptacle for
hidden goods when ho suddenly withdrew,
having quickly replaced the lid on the cask.
In another moment the cause of his alarm
was made apparent, as a couple of sailors
passed him on their way to relieve tho man
at the wheel,
When all was again quiet, for an Instant
he seemed determined to return at once to
the old cask and no doubt withdraw something more that thu interruption hnd prevented his taking in the first place. Hut
suddenly changing his mind, he went down
the stairs that led from the deck to the
sleeping cabins.
Scarcely had May disappeared when another figure, stealthily crossing tho deck,
met my anxious observation. It was the
boatswain. I saw him glance toward the
nt airs down which May had taken bis departure. Ho then made directly for the
cask. It was now obvious to me that the
old boatswain had boon watching I he pleasant voyager.
Just as tho old sailor reached tho water
cask a heavy green sea struck the ship to
windward, necessitating the boatswain's
holding on by thu ropes to keep Ids footing,
and precisely at thu sumo moment May appeared at the top of the cabin stairs.
Tbe instant thu ship steadied herself tbe
old boatswain commenced his examination
of tho water cask. For a moment only May
stood gazing nt him with osevilugluuceas
I ever snw. With one, bound ho was upon
the sailor before he could protect himself.
I waited no longer, but flung open my cabin door and sprang to the rescue. In n few
minutes we had our pleasant friend in irons.
So you see lie was the thief after all,
hiding his knavery under the pleasantcst
exterior I ever met with. Tho munner in
which he hod manufactured the top of the
water cask was a very ingenious piece of
carpentry. Iu tbe interior of the sides of
tho cask ho had driven several nails about
two feet from thu top, on which ho had suspended In wash leather bags the jewelry he
had stolen.
You may easily imagine the surprise
evinced by tho people on board on discovering that tho thief was the man for whom
each and everyone of them entertained
Buch regard.
At the expiration of thrco days from the
date of May's detectlou we landed in Melbourne, and of course 1 handed him over to
tho police, but as no one enro to remain in
the town for tho purpose of prosecuting
him he was .summarily dealt with, The
presiding magistrate sentenced him to six
months' imprisonment with hard labor.—

Ills whole journey was a triumphal progress. The people never tired of looking at
and praising thu lovely child, who sat on

earnest baby eyes.

A Good and .(right Girl.
Violet Dale is a Brooklyn girl, aged 10
years, who has managed to secure popular
favor for her ability as an entertainer. She
is especially good in recitations and in
dancing, the latter a natural gift, which
has been added to by competent instruction. With nil her skill and the favor it
has won her she is as natural and artless in
her manner as any one of her little playmates and looks upon her skill merely as
the means to an end. This end Is the aid
of her mother, the widow of a journalist
and'herself an Invalid, though au artist of
ability. It is touching to see the affection
expressed by each for the other, Though
the daughter has had offers that would benefit her and be an aid to her mother In a
substantial way, the fact that it means a
possible separation is enough to have them
A pleasing personality Is one of Violet's
strongest aids before the public. Rig brown
eyes light up a face around whoso brood
brows masses of dark curls cluster. A
rather large but expressive mouth lends
pleasant expression to her lower features,
and the luck of any precocious look attracts
every one to the little one. Her name Is not
a fancy one chosen for professional purposes, but her own family and seemingly
entirely In keeping with her character.
Her mother realizes the hard work that Is
before tbe little one, but she has confidence
In her future which the child's present ability nnd her apparent purpose would seem
to warrant. She has already appeared with
! success at tho Union league and before other clubs and societies In the city.—Brooklyn Eagle.

A Japancso gentleman not long ngo
visited a drug store on tho Third nvonuo,
In this city, and asked for a postagu
stamp. Tlio stamp was duly supplied by
tho head of tlm drug store, who, wishing to hu pleasant and agreeable to tho
foreigner, said, "Well, sir, which do
you like better, America or China?"
Tho .lapaneso gentleman Indignantly
replied*. "May I suggest, sir, that It is
your business to sell drugs and stamps,
and that you should confine yourself to
thene duties? I alii Hot a Chinaman, but.
a native of Japan, and it is a murk of
your ignorance of geography that you
do not know the difference."
Without apologizing for thu rudeness
of the gentleman of Japan, wo vuntu|t
to remark (hat western peoples, it en
tho most educated among us, do not
seem to carefully distinguish between
Japan nnd China.
Thu Japanese have alwnys regarded
themselves as far in advance in civilization, aud there is nothing which offends
tho native of the island of Japan more
than to bu tul.cu for a ('hiiiaiuaii.
Very much of tho liberal attitude of
the people of Japan toward western
thought and custom arises from the fact
that its national religion is Shltltotsm.
Most people Imagine that lluddhism
is Ihu religion of Japan, and 001ISO
quuutly tlm national cult of Hhiiitolsm
is a religious belief which until tho last
110 years had never boot) heard of iu thu
western world.
For centuries Japan was a terra incognita to Ihe rest of humanity, although
its history dates from urn) It. c, wbou
Jimmer Tenno was king, and ShintniMii
was his creed, lluddhism was not Introduced into Japan until 000 of thu
Christian era, when it oiuno from India
by way of Korea.
The term Shinto is of Chinese origin
and is expressed by tho almost unpronounceable Japanese word of Kami-nn-
niichi, the meaning of both words being
"thu way of the spirits." The essential
principle of Shintoism is a combination
of ancestor worship aud nature worship,
and it would seem that tho latter of
those elements is largely duu to the contact of Japan with tho Taoism of China.
Shinotism is therefore the veneration of
tho country's herons and benefactors of
every age, legendary, historical, ancient and modern.
Tho essential fcntnro of Shintoism is
its liberal attitude townrd other religious beliefs, and when Buddhism was
brought into tho country the priests of
the ancient belief extended the right
hand of fellowship toward its missionaries. But tho same liberality has not
always been returned by the clergy of
Buddhism, and not very long ago one of
tho greut temples at Tokyo was burned
by the Buddhists to prevent its falling
into tho hands of tho Shinto priests.
Shintoism has been equally liberal toward modern Protestant missionaries,
for before the Church of England edifice
nt Tokyo, now known as St. Andrew's
church, was built the present Shinto
government lent one of the Shinto temples for Church of England services.
Whenever opposition to Christianity has
arisen it bus come from the old nobility, who are opposed to all change and
are zealous supporters of Buddhism.
Although Shintoism has been the ancient religiou of Japan for more than
24 centuries, it had never been declared
the "established religion" of Japan until the year 1808, when for reasons
wholly political it became tho established religion of tho country. A grant of
$300,000 a year was made for tho maintenance of the Shinto temples and
shrine", which are said to bo somewhere
about 100,000 in number.
The Buddhism of Japan had been exceedingly aggressive nnd hnd almost subverted the ancient system of Shintoism,
but now when a child is born it Is taken
by its parents cither to n Shinto or a j
Buddhist temple for dedication. Fnnor- >
als are now conducted by either Shinto
or Buddhist priests, as the relatives may
Tho first great god of the Shi nt os is
Mingo no Mikoto, the remote ancestor
pf tho priest mikado, who is said to have
been descended from tbo god and goddess of the sun. The mikado is known
among tho Japanese as Tcushl, or the
sou of heaven, on account of his celestial descent, tho tltlo of mikado meaning very much tho same as the sublimo
porto of thu Ottomans—namely, "tho
presence," an expression so common iu
oriental lands for exalted personages.
It is said that when tho goddess of
the sun made tho mikado's remote ancestor (Mingo) sovereign of Japan she
delivered to him "tho way of the gods"
and decreed that his dynasty should bo
ns immovable as the sun and tho moon;
hence tho need for making Shintoism
tho established religion. She also gave
him n mirror as a sacred emblem, saying, "Look upon this mirror as my spirit, keep It iu tho same houso and upon
the same floor with yourself, and worship it ns if you wero worshiping my
actual presence. " The story is that this
sacred mirror is still in the Shinto temple of Naiku, at Yamnda, although it
has never been seen by a western traveler.
Tho rites of Shintoism for many years
occupied a conspicuous place in the rules
of tho conrt of Japan, and thoro are ten
■eetions of the sacred book kuown as
tho " Yengi Shikl" devoted to court ceremonies. It must bo understood that, according to Shinto belief, the great incar-
nato god is tho mikado himself, hut tho
gods of Shintoism are numbered by thousands. — Thomas P. Hughes in New

The servant girl problem, which has

lias now becomo more serious than over.
Tho scarcity of available girls is alarming, and what makes the situation more
unpleasant is the Tact that tho many employment agencies throughout tho city
holdout very little hope of improvement

number of girls who have gone to Chicago, where they hope to combine business with pleasure and seo tho World's

H. L. Aekerman, the manager of tho
Cosmopolitan Employment agency, in
answer to the reporter's question said:
"Are servant girls scarce? Well, I
should say they are, and what makes it
moro annoying is the fact that when a

conjecture. Already their salaries have
jumped from $11 to fju, and they are
hard to get at that, I am thinking that
tho thousands of girls who went to Chicago will wish that they had remained
here. That city, 1 understand, is overcrowded with girls not from New
York alone, but from nil over the conn-
try. The result is, I think, that the
girls will coiue home sooner than they ex-
pocted. The servant girl today is an autocrat— 'she must be obeyed.' I really
feel sorry for my best patrons, who
blame me for not supplying them with
girls, but what am 1 to do if the girl is
not to be had? But things will be different in the full, and the usual supply
will be on baud for all who want them."
Probably oneof the oldest employment
agencies is the See & Schaefer's. This
firm supplies help to the Four Hundred
and arc in a position to know whereof
they speak. Regarding tho scarcity of
girls, one of the firm said: "Yes, there is
absolutely a dearth of good bouseworkers. The demand is five times as great
08 the supply, The World's fair is not
alone responsible for the scarcity of
girls. You see, the immigration has been
very sliin of late, and as we get most of
our girls from that source it has greatly
inconvenienced us and annoyed our customers."—New York Commercial Advertiser.
A Woman l.»« ) it mi Women In a Jury.
Mrs. Theodore Sutro, the valedictorian
for the first grade graduating class of
the University of New York Law school,
in Qpn. meuting on The Hecorder's special
Borden jury, which includes in its panel
Mrs. Lucy Stone, said:
"I do not know much about this one
particular case, for 1 am not interested
in criminal cases at all beyond seeing by
the headlines in the papers what is going
on in that line. But really I do not
think women jurors would be just tho
thing. The selection must bo made of
women with very strong .characters,
great confidence in themselves and able
to detach themselves from their surroundings iu a greater or less degree, and
that cannot always be done. It must lie
a wonderful woman whocouldstandout
against II men."
"Don't you think it a good plan to
have women jurors on cases when thu
prisoner is a woman?"
"No, I do not. Women are nearly always a woman's most severe critic, and
■he would furo very much better nt the
hands of 12 men jurors than from tho
other sex. The only time I really think
a woman would be of any great nse on
the jury would bo in a case of insanity.
There I think her knowledge of her own
rex and instincts would bo invaluable.
She would be able to tell in nine cases
out of ten whether tho woman were insane or not, whether she wero shamming
to escape punishment for a criino committed or whether it was really a case of
temporary insanity."—New York Recorder. 	
The Growth of Women'*) Clubs.
The founders of Horosis—such well
known women as tho poet Alice Carey,
who was the first president, and her sister Phoebe, Mrs. Jennie June Croly, Kate
Field, Mine. Demorcst, Celia W. Burleigh and Ella Diets Clymer—were caricatured in tho public prints as sitting
with their foot on tables in a cloud of tobacco smoke, with bottles and glasses
conveniently near.
Fortunately, however, these women
wore aa brave as they were clever, Firmly convinced of the value of "the club"
Idea for women, they persevered, undaunted, on their way,
' For a dozen or 15 years these and similar organisations were still regarded
with suspicion by both men and women.
But tho tide turned gradually as the nse
and beauty of organized work among
women came to he ltmnvn, and the club
was finally adopted by women with the
characteristic enthusiasm of their sex.
| It is a noticeable fuct that during the
Inst year u score of women's clubs iu the
vicinity of Boston alono celebrated their
tent h anniversary, it is now the easiest
and simplest of matters to form u woman's dub, while those already in existence find themselves popular, prosperous
and influential.—Mrs. E. M. H. Merrill
iu Donahoe's Magazine.
I Npiiiiluli sivli'K In Underwear.
I    Spanish women   have not the  sumo
styles for underwear that we have. There
are fewer pieces, and these are made
j long,   (towing  and   graceful, like  tho
(lieeiati women's wardrobes, not tight
fitting, after  the English mode.   The
| chemisettes  are  combined  with short
skirts, mid thus save the extra bagging
of  material   about tho waist.   But
Spanish woman must have crape, gauzo
or silk  for her underwear, else she Ii
j never satislled.
It  Is astonishing how these southern
I feint til HOB love yellow and red for under-
I clothing.    This fancy rests with them
'alone, but the shades match well their
j luxurious, creamy tinted flesh, and one
' cannot blame them for choosing them.
I    darters  the  Spanish women abhor,
thinking   that   they  spoil   Ihe  superb
curves of the knee and the upper part
of tho leg, but  they compromise with
the lovely  braided ribbons, which are
not tied tightly about the teg, hut only
folded many times and clasped in a bow-
knot in the center.
Kulalie, who is a true daughter of
Spain, though having lived half her life
in Paris mid absorbed some of tho
French women's daintiest ideas, still
clings to Spanish ways of dressing, and
her lingerie is in tlio most approved
style of tier native laud.—Now York

IImi-p Ilugn If'rnii, Old Carpets.
Summer time, with its bare floors and
colorless matting, is wtien rugs are must
needed. Here, then, is a hint which Borne
women may be able to use. It is moro
than probable the house holds an old,
worn ingrain carpet rolled away somewhere. If this ueeds brushing, brush it;
then cut it into strips un inch wide, being careful not to cut across the warp,
backstitch the strips together and send
them to a weaver of rag carpets with directions as to the lengths you desire
woven and the injunction to use the
best warp possible, If you think it too
much trouble to cut and sew the strips,
the weaver will doubtless do that work
also for a trifle. You will receive some
handsome, thick rugs, which those who
do not know the secret will think closely
allied to Turkish.
The effect, where the original carpet
was of a bright color, is really charming,
and you have the satisfaction of ordering
just such lengths as suit your needs for
a bay window or in front of a sofa or a
bed. These rugs, which, by the way,
will not answer for stair carpet, as they
are too stiff and thick, will lost indefinitely. Some1 have been in use four years
and are still good.—Indianapolis News.
A Woman Carpenter.
The resident population of Chicago
will shortly be augmented by the arrival of Miss Sophie Christensen, a self
reliant young Danish woman, who ought
to get along iu tho world. Her father
was n captain in the Danish army, who
had to live on his meager pay, bo that
his girl had no hope for a dower. Sophie resolved to be independent, and at
the age of DO she apprenticed herself, not
without difficulty, owing to male prejudice, to a carpenter and joiner. She
soon displayed great aptitude for the
work, aud having just completed her
apprenticeship has been admitted as a
full member of the Joiners' guild at Copenhagen by unanimous vote.
In accordance with the sensible custom which prevails in Denmark Miss
Christensen had to submit a specimen ot
her own unaided work before being admitted to the complete honors of the
guild. She made an artistic self closing
bookcase, the beauty and finish of which
extorted the admiration of every member of tho guild. The young woman,
who is now :M years old, thinks Chicagc
will be the best place for her to make a
living in, and thither she will start iu
u week or two.—Exchange.

materially expressed thiB grading system
as well as the industrial.
A number of dolls nre dressed in the
costumes worn by the women in tlio various grades of tho prison, Thus, a doll
iu the costume of her grade is represented as working at silk weaving, Another
In tho costume of her grade has her hut
on and a pall in her hand, apparently in
the act of going out to tho dairy. Aunt her is bending over a miniature tub,
Others again aro represented as ironing,
baking, sewing, etc, Tho idea is original with Mrs. Johnson.—Boston tiloho.
The Heat Way to Get Hid of Fllei.
"No, thank you, my dear, I do not
want any fly papers or flytraps about
my house. I learned a great many years
ago that the more tilings wo havo to call
flies the more will come. In a neighborhood where files wero simply a nuisance
I lived almost unmolested by thorn because I never permitted a particle of
stale fond to accumulate about thu
premises," says a writer.
"Flies, like a good many other tilings,
will never stay where they are in danger of starvation, and I never kept anything about the place lo feed them with
—noteven flypaper, Everything that
could not he burned was carried as far
from tlio house as possible ami buried,
All garbage is valuable as a fertilizer,
ami I utilize it ns such.
"It is my opinion that every form of
fly paper, fly poison and flytrap, which
is baited with any substance, is just so
much luduceinont for them to stay
around tlio house. They think—if flies
think at all—that they are going to get
something to eat, aud therefore hang
around. The host fly preventive is starvation,"
The Old KeitiiueM.
The Prince of Wales will reopen the
north transept of St. Bartholomew's,
Siuitlitield, the famous church which
few American travelers fail to visit. The
restoration fund of St. Bartholomew's
has just been augmented by the sum of
£700 from, of all persons iu tho world,
the little old woman who used to act as
sexton and show visitors round. She
was apparently worth no moro than the
shoes she stood in, but when she died u
few months ago she left property valued
at over £3,000, of which American visitors must have contributed a very large
proportion, for few Englishmen took any
interest in the grand old church. Tho
old sextoness had ample cause to love it,
for she spent the greater part of her long
life in and about it, and for some years
post she had occupied a room in the old
north transept, a part of which, as many '
Americans will remember, was also
used for a blacksmith's forge.—Exchange.
A Llfht and Airy Trifle.
One of the trifles "light as air" which
help in so largo a measure to make the
home cozy and attractive is a bag of silk
illusion filled with silk from milkweed
pods. The length is generally four times
that of the width. Fill each and nearly
to the middle with milkweed Bilks, concealing among this bits of wadding
sprinkled with sachet powder. Tie
around the middle with baby ribbon anil
finish the ends with loops of the same.
This is a pretty souvenir for a friend in
the country to send to some ono less fortunate who may have had to remain all
summer in tho city. The creamy color
of the silk showing through its filmy
covering contrasts daintily with pink or
pale green ribbons.— Philadelphia Times,

Among our neighbors across the

belief that the demonetization of

gold in the world to do the world's
business willi) nnd that if the n.a-
liuns would mily consent to the
free use of silver ns h representative of monoy, tbe hard times would
vanish like mist before the sun.
While it may lie that the abundant circulation of silver would be
''f very i -idernlile benefit locally
'mil perhaps ol some temporary
benefit generally) yet it is not easy
to see how such n cause Could either
Inake or Unmake the business stagnation at present afflicting the
world. If we turn to the fiscal
puliiies uf the nations, ami seek
there an explanation of the state
nf things under consideration) we
Hnd ourselves again at fault, fur

If the preceding view of the
world's great works of the latter
half of this century is rightly taken, it will be admitted that the suggested cause is ipiile cohlpetent to
account for Ihe general business
collapse of the lust two years. Then
another question presents itself:
When trade recovers from existing
abnormal depression, will it proceed in the old channels to which
the lust generation ur two huve become iiccustoined, or will it be compelled by circumstances tn find other nnd narrower courses, somewhat
on the lines of those existing before
mankind's great era of public works
was inaugurated by Ihe invention
of Jatnes Watt ? The answer is
doubtful in view of the wonderful
resources nf modern science ; but,
at least) there does not appear any
justification for the belle! thai the
old days of teeming plenty will
ever ngnin return to Ihe muss of
the people of this continent) arid he
will be foolish who builds upon it.
The outlook for simple labor is not
promising, and with all the Qraw-
baoks of fnrniing, the tiller of tbe soil
will act the purt of wisdom who
remains' with the assured livelihood
of the land in preference to adventuring the risk uf precarious employment in the towns and cities.
