Let us rnjoico. without distinction of moo, ftex or previous condition of servitude. Tlie oyrter season isi going to bo the richest and fatU'it one in seven years, and the months without an R are already •well behind us. There, is nobody alivo who can put more wisdom into a few words than Gen. Shorninn can. This is one thing that ho told the Grand Army boys at Milwaukee: "Keep young as long as you can, and do not go Into a soldiers' home If yon can help it." What irrigation will do for the arid lands of the west is well shown in the case of Pasadena, Cal. Fifteen years ago the land where the city now stands sold for $7 an acre. It was irrigated and orchards planted upon tho soil. Seven years after being supplied witH water the land sold for from $500 to $1,000 an acre for fruit raising. The spot that had been a desert suddenly became tho most fertile and delightful part of the whole state. There has been in China at least one American missionary who gained the full confidence of the natives. This was Rnv. 8. Crossett, an independent missionary, who died lately at Pekin. He devoted his life to the poorest classes of the Chinese. ' Ha took care of the sick and homeless, visited the prisons and buried the dead. So well known and loved was ho that he traveled all over China and the ea*t without money, and wherever he went food and lodging were freely given him. Ho ate only fruit and rice or millet and drank water. What had the world to offer to a man like 'that? He sought only to help the poor in all ways that he could, The natives revered him, and bestowed on him the name that meant the highest praise they could give to any one'. _They called him the Christian Buddha.. The well known oil tank car has been copied in an ocean steamship. This tank steamer is 850 feet long and 40 feet wide. The hull is divided into fourteen tanks that carry 20,000 barrels of oil. The vessel is named tho Russian Prince, and was built at Newcastle, England, A healthy fire tho petroleum would make if ignited, and the Russian Prince, being made entirely of steel, would quickly go to the Ixittom. Destroying Mosquitoes. Dr. Henry C. McCook has taken up the question started by Dr. Lambornand discusses tho extermination of mosquitoes. He believes the numboi'Tjf those pests can be lessened by the assiduous propagation of their two natural enemies, the dragon fly and the spider. He says an intelligent city gentleman once asked him: "What is a dragon fly?" He showed his friend a specimen, when the gentleman exclaimed: "Oh, that's a devil's darning needlu." He was correct. That is to say, a devil's darning needle is a dragon fly. Very often a long, thin legged specimen of the family will be found caught between the window panes in mosquito time, where he has been hunting his prey, and slipped into prison unawares. Don't kill him," but treat him with'all respect. Dr. McCook also speaks very highly of the spider as a mosquito eater. He Bays the number of insects of all kinds • and sizes destroyed by spiders simply passes calculation. In ono of New Jersey's favorite mosquito haunts he once discovered thirty-eight of these nocturnal blood suckers in one spider web. The doctor' informs housekeepers that the spider comes not into our houses to harm us, but to help us —comes to rid us of flies and mosquitoes. If we must brush away her web, we need not destroy the spider herself. "If people •would decrease the number of mosquitoes let them encourage the multiplication of spiders." So the ladies can take their choice which they like best, mosquitoes or spiders. Our Railroads. The United States now possesses nearly half tho railway mileage of the world. At the end of 1898 we had 158,083 mUes of railroad. -The only pity about it is that these miles are not all paying as they ought to. Too many parallel roads have been bnilt, for the purpose of exacting blackmail from a rival, for that is what the construction of one road parallel to another too often means. Our railroads, directly and indirectly, give sustenance to one-eighth of the whole population of the_ country. For sixty years the average increase in lines built has been 2,600 miles a year. Last year the net earnings of the roads fell off 10 per cent. The showing will be better this year. Finally, here are the biggest figures of all: The funded debt of all our railway lines ia $4,186,043.110. Monument to Isabella. A movement has been inaugurated by the women of Illinois which is so altogether praiseworthy that the wonder is somebody did not propose it long ago. Catharine V. Waite, Dr. Julia Holmes Smith and Dr. Fanny Dickinson are a committee incorporated to procure 8ul>- Doriptioiis and superintend"the construction of a monument to Isabella, the pious and clever queen who sold her jewels to fit out the ships in which Columbus sailed to discover America. Dux fo> mina facti! A woman was the only person in all Europe who had brains enough to appreciate the value of Columbus' ideas, they say. Therefore, good Queen Isabella of Spain shall have in this country, which is BO kind to women, a beautiful monument to be unveiled in 1802. It seems peculiarly graceful and fitting that women should build the statue. Let the movement be made a national one and take in all the women of America. —. for 1802. Senator Joseph R. Haw-ley, president ' of our centennial world's fair committee in 1S76, contributes to The North American Review a paper full of valuable suggestions) on expositions in gen- ~ erat." He" saya that tho sixteen" years that have elapsed from 1870 to 1803 will make" it useful and pleasant for the United States iigain to measure progress with other nations. In 1870 our population was 45,000,000. In 1892 we shall havo 09,000,000 or 70,000,000. We shall have increased in population nearly 55 per cent., and more than that in wealth and power, The senator recalls the enormous progress England has made in the industrial and decorative arts since tho tirst world's fair at the Crystal palace, in 1831. England then saw her dftlciencies and immediately went to work and remedied them. This is what world's expositions do for all nations. In all of them the United States has shown her superiority in machinery. New York is the place for the 1892 ex- No other city is large enough or accessible enough. In reference to making the exposition permanent lie uses this Hawleyesque sentence: There U alwayg a tcinptutiou to play with tho iUok of the rocket after It bus performed it* function. , Congress should extend to other nations an official invitation to join us. It •hould also appoint a business coiunm- akm to superintend the exposition. Mo side allows at aa extra charge were permitted in 1970, and exhibitors wero not efc&rged for epac*.

JACOB EISEL0 erohant Tailor Peoples' Favorites NEW YORK STORE Always the Cheapest. Academy of Music Block Tho Great London Strike. A month ago the laborers on the London docks knocked off work and refused to resume it unless they were paid twelve cents an hour. They had been working for ten cents an hour at the hardest labor men could take hold of. The movement of the dock men resulted in the greatest labor strike of modern times. Other wp'rkingmen of kindred trades joined the dock men, in London and elsewhere, till there were altogether 150,000 laborers idle. This involved the going hungry of at least half a million people, unless they had outside aid. This they had for weoks from trades organizations and friends, and it cost $10,000 a day to feed them. The lot of the laborers"was so hard,and the strike was kept within bounds of law and order to such a degree, that the sympathies of everybody except the dock owners were with the men. Their good behavior was owing to their own common sense end the consummate wisdom and power of their leader, John Burns. He is 85 years - old, e, man of magnificent physique and strength, an engineer by trade, and a born leader of men, as he has shown. It is to be noted that tbe first blood in the great strike waiS shed by policemen themselves. They Dred on and mortally wounded a striker who, with his mates, was preventing outsiders from taking up their work. The London docks are the largest and most famous in the world. It is said that $100,000,000 have been expended on them. The oldest dates back to 1806. There are some eight or ten of the principal ones, tho largest being tho immense Royal,Albert dock. It has three miles of water way and a solid mile of iron warehouses. To build it required the labor of 8,000 men from 1875 till the summer of 1880, when the dock was formally opened with splendid cere- aiarrlagu I,lcea«CB Bert CriBt,, Sterling, and Ina Harrington, Harmon, Lee Co.

Commerce was paralyzed, looms were stopped for hick of cotton, and (hops shut down for want of coal. The price of sugar, coal and many other commodities at once advanced. Six thousand tons of meat and millions of pounds of f rait lay rotting in the Thames at one time. 60 intimately are mankind bound together that 80,000 men can thus affect the whole world.
