Benjamin Franklin, the anniversary of whose birth oecxu-s on the 17th of January, was one of the representative American men of his time, and one whose memory deserves to be honored by the people of the United States. His career was remarkable and proves that merit will win its way under adverse circumstances when supported by energy and judgment. Franklin was born at Boston, January 17, 1706. His father was au'intelli- gent and devout chandler of English birth. He was the fifteenth of a family of seventeen children. To keep him from going- to sea, he was apprenticed to his brother James, a printer, and by much reading, careful and assiduous writing, together with the unassisted study of mathcmi (tics, he acquired such knowledge and facility in writing- that he ventured to print his thoughts upon public affairs in- his .brother's newspaper, the Ivew England Courant. The discovery of their authorship led to a quarrel between the brothers. In 1723 he broke his indentures and ran away, first to New York and thence to Philadelphia, -(there he found employment as a journeyman printer. He visited England in 1723-20 After his return to Philadelphia he Married (1730), established the Pennsylvania Gazette, and soon found himself a person of the first consideration, not only in Philadelphia, but throughout the provinces, for his talents as a writer and his judgment is public and private affairs. He established the Philadelphia Library in 1743, and the American Philo GOOD ROOT CELLAR. Plans of One,Thivt Cftn Be Built for About ' Tifty Dollars. . A root cellar ''wholly above ground," ft plan for which is desired by a subscriber, is not advisable where frost* frequently penetrate ,to the depth of two or three feet, as it does in the North. But a cellar partly underground is safer and usually cheaper, if possible, choose a location protected from the prevailing winter winds by a kill or woodland, with natural drainage; make an excavation to the depth of about four feet, and a length and breadth sufficient to hold the anticipated crop. This is easily -done by figuring on two thousand eight hundred cubic inches as the space required by one bushel of potatoes or other.root crops. Lay up a good stone foundation to one foot above ground, using a liberal amount of mortal-. The .stairs of five steps may lie located on the outside, as shown in'the engraving, or placed inside the cellar, as desired. The superstructure may be of wood; the corner posts need not be over six feet in height. If a balloon frame, the studding should be covered with matched lumber, both outside and inside.

Because it's' sold on a' peculiar plan, and yon only pay for the ffood you get. Can you ask more?

The roof, may be of any material desired. The interior should be divided into bins, located so that they may be reached by a long wooden trough, one end of which can project out of either -window, into which the roots are scooped direct from the wagon. Windows should be arranged so as to be readily opened or closed for ventilation.

In 1775 he was chosen "to Congress, and in 1776 was one of the signers -of the Declaration of Independence, living also been one of the committee to draft that instrument. He was (177G-S5) employed in the diplomatic service of the United States, chiefly in Paris, where his influence in behalf of his country was powerful, and where his simplicity, dignity and wisdom made him highly popular. Se was president of the Pennsylvania Supreme Council -(in effect Governor of the State) 17S5-88. In 17S7 he was one of the delegates to the convention which drew up the United States-Constitution. ^This truly great man and disinterested patriot died April 17, 1790. Of the writings' of Franklin the "Busybody," a series of admirable papers somewhat after the manner of the. Spectator, and the incomplete "Autobiography," are the best known; bnt his political, anti-slavery, financial, economic and scientific papers are all noteworthy. The famous "Poor Richard's Almanac," he published from 1732 to 1757. In youth he was an avowed sceptic in religious matters, but in later life treated the Christian religion with great reverence. "Franklin's career," wrote Charles Henry Hart in the Century a short time ago, "stamped as it was with great successes, and left as it has an imperishable mark upon the page of history, is much like the career of a great lawyer whose powers and abilities liave contributed largely to build up the body oi TARRED .paper win drive away lice.
