The miners' strike Is on at the An  thraolte regions of Pennsylvania. Thc  operators were dellant and eager for  the fray. The miners pulled every wire  to prevent the collision, and Anally voted to go out ln the very last extremity. A large minority voted against  .the strike, and President Mitchell, all  ���acco*nta agree, -did his best to prevent  4t Most eornostly do I hope tbepoor  dervlla will win, but there ls no use try  lng to conceal the fact that they' are  "up against It" and that the coal com-  .panles have been preparing for. the  ���light, openly courted lt, and are deter-  ���mlned to wipe out the union and "run  their mines -to suit themselves. -At this  writing everything is '  1  Quiet as a Graveyard  In the anthracite region, but nevertheless the Republican governor, elected  largely by the votes of miners 'who  don't 'believe In going into politics,', has  already sworn In an army of special  coal police, armed with Winchesters, to  "protect property," and incidentally to  perforate the Ihides of the striking miners,, if it becomes necessary .to break  slve's leader, Mr. Ohrls.

AN AUTOMOBILE LINE,  A despatch says that a labor convention was held at Terre Haute on  Thursday, when it was decided to carry  on the street railway strike of that city  and Brazil. An automobile line will be  placed in the city, which will reach  Brazil, Clinton and other surrounding  towns. Citizens will take stock in the  concern.

Pennsylvania," where hell ls as active  as Mt. Pelee, and slavery In full blast,  has a Republican majority of three  hundred thousand, made up quite large  ly of the poor devils now on strike. The  governor is already making active preparations to return bullet for ballot in  accordance with, the invariable programme of the capitalist class, whom  the miners and other workingmerThave  made the ruling class of the country.  President Mitchell will do the best lie  can ln a trying position. He has issued a request that the miners  Abstain from tlie Use of Liquor  during the strike, and, noting on this request, they thronged the churches on  Sunday and took the oath of total abstinence and the pledge to entirely  keep out of the saloons until the strike  Is settled. As for the civic federation,  It ihas already done its worst. It has  delayed and dallied six weeks, taken  the heart out of many of the" strikers,  and set tliem by the ears among themselves. Had the miners struck April  1, as they Intended, they would have  been far stronger than, they are to-day.  My advice ito you, striking miners, is  to keep away from ithe capitalistic  partnership of priest and politician, to  cut loose from the civic federation and  To Stand Together  and fight It out yourselves. If you  can't win, no one can win for you;  ana if in the end you find that the  corporations can beat you at tho game  of famine, you may, and it is hoped  that you will!, have your eyes opened  to the fact thait your vote is your best  weaipon, and that if the 140,000 miners  of Pennslvanla will cost a solid vote  for socialism, they will soon drive the  robbers from the state and tike possession of 'the mines and make thein-  selves-masters~of~ their "industry,"and  the wortaingmen the rulers of the  state.   As for  The Anmy of Coal Police  already marshaled and' armed by the  governor to shoot the strikers upon the  assumption that they are criminals, 1  advise that the miners la convention  assembled unanimously resolve that,  while they propose to keep within the  law, they also propose to exercise all  the rights _ and privileges the law  grants them; and, furthermore, that  tlio monstrous crime of Latimer shall  not be repeated, and if any striker is  shot down, without good cause, the flint  shot shall be a signal for war, and the  miners will shoot back; and If killing  must bo the programme of the coal  barons, let it bo an operator for a  miner Instead of miners only, as In the  pas*.���Eugene V.

Sherriff presided last  Monday night over a large attendance  at the regular meeting of Freight-  Handlers" Union, No. 4. A large amount of business was transacted, new  members were initiated, and several applications for membership were received. It was also decided to requett  Deputy Minister ot Labor King to send  copies of the proposed arbitration act*  of Hon. Mr. Mulock, which will be taken up by the union for consideration  in the near future.  C. P. R. CONDUCTORS.  The Revelstoke Herald says that  tliere is a movement on foot among  the conductors of the Canadian Pacific railway, aiming at the presentation  of a demand for increased remuneration  and other concessions. The general  committee of the order Is in session in  Montreal completing and perfecting or-  wishes of the majority. Five hundred  copies of the constitution and by-laws  were ordered to be iprinted, copies of  which will be distributed throughout  the city and district, in order that all  may .understand the principles and  work of the new party. It was decided to hold a series of open debates  upon the planka in the platform, taking them up in the order as printed,  and Messrs. Smith and McLaren were  ohosen captains to oppose each other  in' the discussion over plank 1st, the  debate to come off on June 13 th. These  gentlemen will be ably supported with  plaked men, and the discussion will  probably be the most inteersting and  instructive ever witnessed in Kamloops.   1. , A l~~ 7~ ���      ,,.    ..,  ,      tlal change in the situation  After some further business, the meet  ins adjourned to meet ait same   hour  and   place     on    June    ISth.���Allster  Thompson, Secretaiy.  ganlzation and deliberating on a revis  ion of the schedule of wages, which ls j organised   labor  now in force somewhat after the man- j (they will) in the premises,  ner of the trackmen and telegraphers,, nlty of labor will be upheld, and im-  WhO     rPPl.llHv    nVltnlnofl     on     aillrnnnn    in      nr-mttlrl     tinnrl 11 Inn.    ...Ill     i. _      .  have settled their differences with the  company in a satisfactory manner.

The document has been signed by W. J. Adames (chairman), Geo,  T. MacKinnon (master mechanic), and  F. Kelly (secretary).  At a meeting of the carmen and others in Foresters' Hall, Winnipeg, on'  Wednesday of last week, Mr. Ronemua  made a deeply Interesting address, from  which the following is taken from the  Voice;.  "The abolition of child labor ls necessary to prevent the child becoming the  competitor of its own father,  "Labor should and must raise ita  voice against t'he system of discriminating against the employment of meu  after they have reached the age of  forty or less. i -     ,  "Ladles' auxiliaries, arc beneficial to  all classes of organised labor.

The meetings that  are being held are private, and the  committee have little to say on the  subject of their deliberations. Up to  the present the conductors have not  made their demand upon the company.  .FISHERMEN AND CAiNNERS. ���  The flshermen and canners will hold  a meeting this afternoon In this city,  to agree upon a schedule for the season.

The  season's work promises to be good, and  the union will soon start holding weekly  meetings.  0 THE C. N. R. STRIKE.

No" doubt he is makin his fortune, and he'll deserve a good  long holiday when the rnen get back.  How tired he must be, poor fellow.���  Winnipeg Voice.  Deputy Minister of Labor Mackenzie is at Winnipeg to see what he can  do to bring about a settlement.  It is' reported from reliable sources  that the Port Arthur machinists were  afked to go to Winnipeg to work in  the places of the strikers. They re-  fused, and a strike was the outcome.  The C. N. R. management have got  two non-union men working in the  shops at Winnipeg.  proved conditions will be assured in  the future for these and other girls  employed at a meagre wage.  "Energy and perseverance on the  part of organised labor, as well as on  that on capitalists will biing its reward.  "The press and the pulpit form to   a  large extent public opinion.       It    is  necessary for labor to see that its Interests   are   observed.      ��   the public  press fails to uphold the dignity of labor,    labor must     build    up its own'  press, In supporting the labor papers,  which    are    destined    to    become the  'public press' of "the future.'   ,If   our,  pulpits are filled by ministers who fail  to preach the gospel ot humanity,   bub  persist in catering to the wishes' of tho  rich only,  the friends   of   labor must  see that others are found to supply the  positions.     Failing in this', labor    must  do its own preaching also."    i fi.  A local man 'has received the following invitation to go fishing, from  an out-of-town friend: "Dear Bill,���The  bugs liave all been removed from the  spare  bed, and up behind  the stable  the iflshworms are getting reckless.  The old corkscrew still retains its  point, and tho gem jar with the catsup  contains more than air. Why Is this  thusly? The C. P. R. .runs through this  town."  GETTING IN EVIDENCE.  The ofllcers of the Brotherhood of  Railway Trackmen are busy these days  in the gathering of evidence to lay  before the board of arbitration who  will further consider the claims of the  Canadian Pacific maintenance of way  men at Montreal, some time next week.  When the arbitrators met ln Montreal some time ago to consider the  claims of the disaffected employees^ of  the company, It was agreed that if the  arbitrators would establish minlmums  for section foremen and section men,  that the wages of all othtr.-classes  could be worked out from that basis.  i."?!!^". Engraver,  ���cm  PROGRESSIVE CAMPAIGN.  i  Arrangements aire uadlar way for  launching the Provincial Progressive  Party on the waves of practical politics in the three coast cities of Van-  i. '  couver, Nanaimo amd Victoria, and it  is likely that -withlm a few weeks Nanalmo will be visited by the Progres-1 Kansas and Missiurl.  Walter Vrooman, of the Western Cooperative  Movement, has  closed  contracts for the purchase of six of the  li-rgest wheat elevators in the Kansas  wheat belt and two of the largest flouring mills.   The present purchase is only  the beginning of a movement to center  the farmers of Kansas ln a branch of  the  Vrooman   Co-oporatlvo  Company,  to be known as the Wheat and Flour  Western Co-operative   Company.   The  formers are to be tnken Into the scheme  on the payment ot $100 each, for which  they are to receive the market value of  their wheat sold to the company, and  In addition, will receive one-half of the  profit derived, the other half going to  the co-operative stores through which  the wreat and flour will  be bandied!  Tho plan ia to eliminate wheat speculators and the middlemen.   It Is intended to ship to Great Britain, to bt sold  among the co-operative members there,  the surplus product not disposed of in  by the committee and the general manager, by allowing them a proportionate  increase.   This, Chancellor Boyd acted  upon  when  writing the award, giving  the men a 20 per cent, increase over  the rate paid In 1S97.   Since this award  was made the mon claim that thee has  been a disposition on the part of the  management to euclne them out ot the  advantages which lt should give them,  and that an effort wns made to shelve  the award on the score that It Is not  siifllclently explicit.    The men  do  not  agree  with   this,  and  are anxious  to  have   the  arrangements    carried  out.  as they say lt will mean an advance of  20 per cent, from the 1st of May for the  men over the entire system.   They will  endeavor to secure this at the final arbitration, and to this end are gathering  statistics for the purpose of   showing  that the wages of the trackmen In the  west have not kept pace with the advances in other avenues of work, nor  with the cost of living.    These statements are   being  prepared   with   the  greatest of care, and before being forwarded will be sworn to.���Nelson News.  JOHN L.

His eyo foil upon nu open blank  book on tlio.carpet' beside hor, a page  of which, ho observed, wns covered  ���with..arithmetical calculations. Ho  thought nothing of it at the time, but  ho had ocensin to recall it later.  Ho tool: a step forward, lotting the  curtains fall behind him.  "Pardon mo, Miss Bmikiii���here is  a letter for yon."  She gave a great start, and hastily  rose. Her face flushed as sho caught  Right of Ilio large, oblong envelope in  his hand. Only the day before, ho  had handed hor n similar envelope,  bearing its conspicuous 'advertisement  of tlio most celebrated civil law firm  in Boston. What transactions, he  wondered, could tho shy girl possibly  bo having with such a linn ns Titzel  and McVay? They dealt with no trivial cases.  "Thank yon," she said, ns she received it from him: she turned away  at once and sat down in a low chair  just back from tho window. Her  hand trembled ns'sho broko tho seal.  Ho saw that she did uot hood his presence; she seemed unconscious of him.  Tho letter was evidently a matter of  y moment. Naturally, sinco it camo  from Titzel and MoVay. But 'was sho  not perhaps ono of- thoir typewriters  away on hor vacation? Sho impressed  one ns a person of limited moans. A  ' typewriter, no doubt. .And theso daily  .documents from tho Boston law firm  were probably lovo lot tors from a  youthful clerk or law student in the  office. Slio was rather a pretty girl  ���though a bit innno, he imagined.  Howovor, somo sorts of mou���tho ponderous, . overbearing sort���liked that  kind of women. But hold! a typewriter's Hilary would scarcely justify  lier paying tvi-cnly-fivo dollars a week  board during ' her .rummer 'outing���  which price was tbo lowest charged  at Pellinni Ecach Cottage. Ho glanced at the giiTs .. dclieato face���moro  keenly, perhaps, thnn ho had over  looked ar. her beforo���nnd somehow  '..'tbo'.typewriter, hypothesis did not  seem quite plausible. Ho gave up the  puzzle���what business hail ho, any  way, to bo conjecturing about this  little stranger's private matters?  He lifted his hand to separate tho  curtains, and passed out into the parlor.  ���"Ypu staid behind thoso curtains so  long," spoke Florence Halo's musical  ��� voice,-tis-ho-camo-up-to���(ho���table-at  which she and her mint wero sitting,  ��� "that I thought you had boon spirited  away through tho window hy what's  !his name, the god of tho storm, you  '.know!

Ho drow n chair to tlio tablo and  est down at right angles to hor, but  facing tho liny-window, tho curtains  of which remained npnrt as ho had loft  tbcm.  "Some lnnd-maids," ho remarked,  "surpass in magic powor all tho inor-  nnuils of fablo and rhymol Thoro 1  I ain't do tlmt kind of thing well,  you know.

"Then don't you ever cravn it  friendship in which you could fully  and freely express yourself?"  "I'm sure I don't know," she answered, vaguely.  Ho laughed at. her puzzled look.  "You aro on undovoloped . child,"  he said, indulgently. "And yot," ho  added, gravolv, "even as a child.I  used to fool oppressed with a sense of  my loneliness in my inability to make  myself known to othors. Don't yon  know at all what it is to feel that  kind of loneliness?"  She slowly shook hor head.  "It is becauso you ore'so awfully  deep," sho explained. , "Our mutual  friend, John Winthrop, always told  me you wero deep. That. V is why you  aro. different."  "Different?"  "Yes. You ore odd, you know;  now don't you think you are?"  "No. I think other ' people.'nre  odd."  "Talking about odd people," interrupted Miss Matthews, "My Father  had a friend, tho Rev.

You know those Unitarians of King's  Clinpol have a good deal of ritual in  their service, and Mr. Dostle told My  Father that ho would accept tho 'pastorate 7 only on condition that thoy  changed their Prayer Book and loft  out 'miserable "sinners'! I asked him  how he could possibly want to leave  out that, and ho said that strangors  coming into tho church were offonded  by it and did not like it. Fancy, Dr.  Forney!"  "Why did not some ono suggost to  him, '���'��� Forney said. " that wo havo a  foot note in tho Prayer Book, 'Strangers need not make any personal application?'

She saw nothing to account for his  sudden color. Miss Rankin, on a low  chair, just back from the window,  was still idly looking out into the  night, her big business letter lying in  her lap.

Miss Rankin rais-  od her eyes from her papors and again  looked nt- him, hor faco bearing onco  more that expression of mingled surprise nnd fear with which sho hail regarded him a moment beforo at the  window.  "Didn't you?" ho said carelessly.  "I think," ho abruptly added, "that  tho storm is almost over now."  "I shall want a stroll on tho piazza  just as soon ns tlio wind stops blowing  sha'n't you?" Floronco nskod.  "No���no���you ought not to go  out," ho said, hastily; "it will be  vory damp and chilly."  "Oh, pshaw! If you won't take  mo, I shall go alone.

I have found It much easier to give  my baby a butii and to dress him sinco  I added a big kitchen table to the furnishings of his room.. I had tried setting the tub on a low table at first nnd  found the bath to be a tax on my back,  while dressing the baby In my lap was  a tax on my agility. The table I now  use measures about 2W. by 4 feet, hns  four solid legs and a long drawer that  opens easily and no leaves. There is  rooin-on it for the tub, soap, towels  arid other accessories of the bath, while  .the drawer Is near, with contents of  ointments, powders, surgeon's .cotton,  lmth thermometer, extra safety pins,  nnd so forth. 1 k<-c'p the table hare, of  course, but the clean wood top In not  unsightly Iq the nursery.  I And It much easier to stand for the  ten minutes of the bath than to lean  over a lower tub. It Is of course impossible to dress the baby on the table  while the tub Is there, so I take him  out of the tub on to the underflnt of my  big double bath towel apron and proceed to dry nud dress blm on my lap.  This after bath dressing, by the way,  ls quickly done, as the baby wears a  nightgown during his noon nap. Most  mothers dress n child for the day at  that time; but finding that my baby  sleeps better In his nlghtclothes, I re-  -serve-two-nightgowns a- wcok-for-the-  noon naps.  When the table is free nnd the dressing can be done on lt, the baby Is delighted. I draw my chair up to the table, where he sits nnd submits to the  ordcnl very gracefully. He seems to  like sitting up high, and his enjoyment  of it, combined witb the relief to my  bnck, makes the process a plensa liter  ono for life and a quicker one.���Uood  Housekeeping.  Oriental Room Kot Expensive.  According to an authority, tho fitting  up of an oriental room or a cozy corner  does not necessarily require the expenditure of a Binnli fortune, although  thousands can easily be expended if  thousands nre available for the purpose. But there are reasonable priced  materials that are used with excellent  elloct In the adornment of a Moorish  or whatever stylo of room Is desired,  nnd It is to be noted that the arrange-  ment of those draperies Is more simple  than formerly, and therefore the materials are not so apt to prove dust  traps. An advantage In the cotton  goods ls thnt they can be easily cleaned, and If draped artistically the effect  Is as good as If thto more costly material had been employed. The arrangement of light is one of the Important  adjuncts In connection with the fitting  up of an orlentnl room, and, whatever  lie the method employed, the light  must be so tempered as to produce tho  mellow effect that is half the charm of  oriental draperies, whether costly or  Inexpensive."

Parents.  Parents may sometimes be tyrants,  children sometimes rebels, but home  life would never be a failure if Thnck-  eniy's doctrine of the double duty were  recognized ��� "Honor thy father and  mother" nnd "Honor thy son nnd  daughter." As the same kindly philosopher, so often miscalled cynic, said.

Spoiling: Children   by Cnre.  A great Swedish statesman once said  that the world is governed too much.  Whether.true or not of states, thc mot  Is certainly true in many cases of children. How often has a bright boy,  full of life and energy, been spoiled by  tlio very efforts���conscientious, painstaking, but incessant, overanxious,  fussy���of his parents or tutors to train  him well! In their anxiety to mako  him a model of virtue they allow him  hardly any freedom or opportunity to  do wrong nnd, being kept continually  in loading strings, unexposed lo temptations, the triumphant conflict with  which would tench him self reliance  and strengthen his moral backbone, he  becomes a moral weakling.

If you apply a little glycerin to tho  tip of the tongue, you will find that,  although it has a pleasant, sweet taste,  the first sensation that is felt is one of  pain and burning. This is becauso glycerin has a strong affinity for water and  absorbs all moisture from the surface  which It touches, thus drying up and  parching the nerves.

To tlu> liditoi of Tim Indiu'endest.  .Sir,���As an old member of the Trades  and Labor council of this city, and ns  a staunch union man in my views all  my life, I will stand if I stand alone.  ���My profession is that of a cook. If I  fail in business, that.Is my resource as  a livelihood. If'I did not work steady  to-day at that occupation I could not  earn a living. Put mo out of business,  and where do I stand as a cook? . ould  tlie:Waiters' union be on my side? The  first tilling they agree to do is: If the  proprietor will agree to their ��� rules,  'thoy will put a sign in the window:  "Union labor employed here." Under  this arrangement the proprietor chuckles to himself and' sees that he can put  Chinese in the kitchen. A card in his  window fools the passers-by, and the  union waiters consider they have gained a point .by getting tlieir wages  raised. And the abused cooks, wheie  are they? Well, everybody says, drunk.  And what everybody says must be true.  Now, 'tlli.cn, as a cook first, arid union  next, I will tell you candidly and plainly that JI will sign my name willingly,  but I have never been asked by a dele-  gatlonrepresentingthe waiters to join  or sign their articles since the New  York Kitchen lias been in existence.  But 'I must as union man require tliat  no card shall be exposed, showing a  house asa union house wlhere Chinese  are employed in any capacity whatever.  When .that is conceded, I will willingly  sign my name, as It will enable union  men to make a distinction between  places employing Chinese ' and" white  cooks.  C. W.

THE SOUTHERN "R.1  Tar* Criticism ot Northern Com-  '" ment! on' Its'Pr'oriainclatlon. '  We do uot believe that there ls anything ln the world more provocative of  southern laughter than the northern  attempt to reproduce southern pronunciation. For instance, there Is an idea  in the north that the southerner never  pronounces the letter "r" and that he  invariably substitutes the letter "n"  for lt. Nothing could be moro utterly ab-  surd.yetthe absurdity still lives. Wears  ourselves peaceably inclined and very  far from desiring to sec a renewal ot  grim vlsnged war, but we lmve a  strong conviction tlint tho letter "r"  will yet be responsible for a civil war  ln this republic.  A fow years ngo William Dean now-  clls. writing ln Literature, made tbe  assertion that the letter "r" was extinct ���  ln this country, but lie was certainly ,  hasty In his conclusions.   There ls a,'  tendency everywhere to slur the last  EARLY AMERICAN COSTUMES  Interesting?. Collection  of Garmenli  In the'Boston Musenm.  The Museum of Fine Arts In Boston  hns what Is probably n unique collection of enrly American costumes. There  are nbout 300 specimens, ranging from  underwear and baby clothes of homespun linen to complete suits of velvet  or broadcloth.  The most striking of these complcto  suits Is one worn by JnmcB Bowdoln  as minister to Spain curly In thc last  century. Bowdoln wns tho founder of  Bowdoln college ut Brunswick, Me.,  and an early Revolutionary patriot  who   became  afterward,   with  John  Hancock nnd Samuel Adams, one of  svllables or tlie lust letters of certain i tho flr8t three governors of Mnssncliu-  words, but this does not Imply any dls-1 "otts- Tlle cont nnd Ulloe breeches  respect of tbe letter "r."

Tho hnsty northerner hns nn  iden that the southerner pronounces  tho word "Mary" ns If It were spelled  "Mahy." Nothing could be more silly.  But the northerner very frequently  pronounces this vory simple name as  If it were written "Mnynhry."  Thc truth is that we sound the "*���**  nnd let lt go, while the northerner  hangs on to it as a dog would shake a  rat. What southerner that ever lived  said "llhm" for "lirin," or "ignohant"  for .."Ignorant" or "grocehy" for "grocery," or "tehholi" for "terror?" Tho  tendency to chop off the end of words  prevails In the south, ns it does In  every part of the country nnd ns it  does in every people, but we must protest vigorously against the Idiotic idea  that the letter "r" Is obsolete In the  south.  WEDDING SUPERSTITIONS.  The bride who Qnds n spider on her  wedding dress may consider herself  blessed.  The bride who dreams of fairies the  night before her marriage will be  thrice blessed.  If the bridegroom carries n miniature horseshoe In his pocket he will always have good luck.  Ship marriages nre considered anything but lucky. Get married on land,  or don't get married at all.  No bride or grocm should Ue given a  telegram while on the way to church.  It is positively a sign of evil.  If the wedding ring be dropped dnr  Ing tho ceremony the bride mny as  well wish herself unborn, for she will  always have 111 luck.  Kiss n bride after the ceremony, nnd  before the newly made husband has a  clinncp to do so. nud you will have excellent luck throughout the year.  Muidens .-nger to wed should give  dishwater heated to the boiling point  n wide berth. It means thnt they will  not marry i'or a long time If they attempt to cleanse dishes ln water so liul.  Should n bride perchance see n colllii  while being being driven to the railway station prior to departing upon  her boney moon., she should order the  driver to turn back and start oier  again, or else she will surely meet with  bad luck.  Po.-oelnln  Violins.  A well known manufacturer of musical instruments in Germany, Max  Freyer, lias introduced u process for  making violins from clay. These fiddles are of the ordinary pattern, but  are cast In molds, so that each Instrument ls an exact counterpart of its  fellow. It is said���but It Is somewhat  hnrd to believe���tbnt the porcelain  body nets as n better rosonntorthnn  ono of wood nnd tlint the tone of tho  instrument is therefore singularly pure ;  and full. The sauie inventor Is nlso  making mandolins of chlnn clay, and it  seems that they nre much appreciated  iu southern countries, where this In-1  Etrumont is regarded more seriously j  t'lan lt is ln Britain. The obvious dis-1  advantage of a musical Instrument being made of china clay Is thc brittle-  ncss of that material, as well as its  weight, but both these drawbacks seein  to have been forgotten. For some!  time we have heard rumors of most  excellent violins being made of aluminium, nnd this metal, from its extreme lightness nnd other'qualities,  would seem to be admirably ndupted  to such n purpose.  orated In n poem.

The other objects in the collection nre  more miscellaneous. There are n number of bnbycnps, for example, antedating the Revolution, Indies' prunella  slippers with tiny heels that would  hardly have covered n silver sixpence,  '< n variety of fine linen undergarments,  ladies' hoods, stockings for both men  and women, milled shirt fronts such as  modern dandyism hns more than once  attempted to bring bnck Into use nnd  weather shoes of rough carpeting made  to protect the feet of the owner when  driving In winter weather. The specimens include nlso many examples of  colonial' ornament, among them buckles, earrings, bonnet pins and even n  single silver thimble. In short, although the collection Is considered as  only the beginning of a much larger  one, there ns examples of nearly all  thc things tbnt one enn readily Imagine  ns necessary to the wardrobe of a lady  or gentleman a hundred years or more  ago.  ��� ilnny of the old gnrments hnve served ns models for one of the most famous American illustrators of colonial  subjects and nro thus, in n way, actually familiar to hundreds of men  and women who rend books, but who  have never heard of the collection itself.

I purchased a box  und thought it; did me somo good, so  1 got six: boxes more,-and before   I  luul finished taking thc second I felt  a lot better, and by the time I had  finished    the seven boxes I had perfectly regained my health, had'gained weight and felt better than I had  for sonic years.   I consider thc pills  a splendid medicine,  a real godsend  to weak and ailing women, and have  frequently recommended them to my  friends and used them with iny children,   always   with    good   results."

The work formerly, done by  hand is now done "'��� by machinery   to  such an extent that a prominent stalls-',  ticiam estimates  that���"'theloutput   of  the machines of.Great Britain is equal  to tlie outpu t, of 700,000,000 men. : Thus  the,invention, that 'does the:woiflc. ot a  hundred-jiaen 'frequently causes ninety  nine ito sotp work/and often,enough, to  stop eating. / Laborers who constitute  the ,vast majority of the .population, of  e'vei-y country, are/beginning -to   see  that they have   ibeen'   victimized-  by  those who control .the maohinery, aiid  the claim is hurled out "The machine  ���must not, only lighten the anxiety, of  the owner, but tt must lighten the.bur-  den, andy the toil of    the   workman."  Other causes liave also been amd still  are.at work. 'The enormous concentration of capital, -the separation j of   the  industrial classes fromv the    so-called  world of ease, the-building uip of our  civilization upon the principle of free  competition, the spread in all nations  of  the"democratic''principle.Vnadl the  letliargy,: of religious institutions,-   all  have, had' "their share in producing   a  movement for .which the church must  have a message.   It is the duty of the  church to tell out the   message   of  Christianity.���ToHake^the-teacflilngs'^of  the Lord Christ andi hold them forth  totihe world as the only solvent for the  great seething iproblems that face us.  When men say that it Is right to live  In accordance with the principles    of  free and unrestricted competition  because It Is a law of nature, the church,  If .It be a true Interpreter of .the Christ,  must say an emphatic No,  It Is not  right; free competition has mode y the  tiger iking of the jungle.   It has made  the shark king of ithe sea.     It la a  principle unworthy of the support   of  man.   The 'teaching ot Christ is   this:  "All  men are brothers,  and  brothers  must flot try to outwit and undermine  and overthrow eaoh othor."   Whatever  Is good In' socialism or any other Ism  Is embodied In the Christian system.  To this, a movement which Is  little  other than 'the economic aspect of the  Christian Tellglon, the church,   tlie exponent of Christian teaching, must not  be cold  nor unfriendly,    AU   that  Is  good ta any itheory, the churoh moist  teach or be recreant to her trust.
