Concluded from 2d Pajre FOR LITTLE FOLKS. A BUSINESS BOY. How » Chicago lad Eistabli*Ued and Carries on a Bread Koute. Robert Stuart is a, Hyde Park bov. Last summer he very ranch wanted to earn some Money of his own. He thought of all the schemes that he ever bad heard of, and then he started an entirely new one. He went to Air. O'ilar- row, who had jusr. opened a bakery in Fifty-fifth street, and said that if he yuuiiK mim smuai u<= ^^,<~. -, was supplied with a horse and wagon he tests cry them, try them! Oh, leave the I thought he could get np a profitable biin until yon hear key in the door after midnight But his physical constitution is not quite so strong as yours, and tbe liquor be drinks is mons terrifically drugged than that •which you drink, and so he -will catch up with you en tbe road to death, though you got such a long start of him, and so you will both go to hell together. The revolving Drummoud light in froutof a hotel, iu front of a locomotive, may flash this way aud flash that upon the"mountains, upoi) the ravines, upon the city, but 1 take the lamp of God's eternal truth, and 1 flash it upon all the clubhouses of these cities, so that no man shall be deceived. By these nights, would you, if yon had known she was going away so soon? Dear me, yonr house has never buen the same place since. Your wife has never brightened np. She has not got over it; she never will get over it. How long the evenings are, with no one to put to bed and no ono to tell 1h« beautiful Bible itory. Wluir. :; pity it is that youciiunot spend more cvi nines ;it IKMIU in tryins j :o help her lioar lliiit .<( rnnv ! You c::u never drown that, ••riei 1 in the wine cup. Vou can nci-i-v break »way from the lit;le arms that r.scd to bo flung around yonr neck when the used to say, "Pupa, do stay home tonight—do stay lioine tonight." You will nevi.T bu ulilu 1" \vipe away from your lips the dying kiss of yonr little girl. The fascination of a dissipating clubhouse is so great that sometimes a man bas turned his back ou. his home when liis child was dying of scarlet fever. Ho went away. Before he got back at midnight the eyes had bcfin closed, the undertaker had done his work, and the wife, worn out with three weeks' watching, lay unconscious in the next room. Then there is a rattling of tbe night key in the door, and the returned father romcs up stairs and sees the empty cradle and the window up. He says, 'What is the matter?" In God's judgment day he will find out what was the matter. Oh, man astray, God help you! The influence which some of the clubhouses are exerting is tho more to bede plored because it takes down the very best men. The admission fee sifts out the penurious and leaves only the best fellows. They are frank, they are generous, they are whole souled, they are talented. Oh, I begrudge the devil such a prize! After awhile the frank look will go out of the face, and the features" will be haggard, and when talking to you, instead of looking you in the eye, they •will look down, and every morning the mother will kindly ask, "My son, what kept you out so late last night?" and he will make uo answer, or he will say, "That's ray business." Then some time be will come to the store or the bank cross and befogged, and he will neglect some duty, and after awhile be will lose his place, and then, with nothing to do, he will come down at 10 o'clock in the morning to curse the servant because the breakfast is cold. The lad who was a clerk iu the cellar has got to be chief clerk in the great commercial establishment, the young man who ran errands for tho bank has got to be cashier, thousands of the young men who were at the foot of the ladder have got to the top of the ladder, but here goes tho victim of the dissipating clubhouse with stag-germs step and bloodshot eye and mud bespattered hat set sidewiseon a shock of greasy hair, his cravat dashed with cigar ashes. Look at him, pure hearted younj.: man, look at him! The clubhouse did that. I know oua such who went thf whole round aud, turned out of tho highor clubhouses, went into the lower dubhonses aud oa down until one night ho leaped out of a third story window to end his wretchedness. Let me s:iy to fathers who are becoming dissipated, your sous will follow you. Vou thiuk your son does not know. He knows all about it. 1 have heard mem who say. "I am profane, but never iu the presence of my children." Yocr children know you swear. I have heard men say, "I drink, but never in the presence of my children." Yonr chil dreu know you drink. I describe now what occurs in hundreds of households in this country. The tea hour has arrived. The family are seated at the tea table. Btifore the rest of the family arise from the table th« father shoves back his chair, says he has an engagement, lights a cigar,'goes oat, comes back, after midnight, and that is the history of 865 nights of the year. Does any man want to stultify himself by saying that that is healthy, that that is right, that that is honorable? Would your wife have married you with such prospects? Time will pass on, and the son \viU be 16 or 17 years of age, and you -will be at the tea table, and he will shove back and have an engagement, and he will light his cigar, and he -will go out and TOU -wffi. bear disputing influences of the clubrooin, if tho influences of your clubroom are dissipating. Paid your money, have you? Better sacrifice that than your soul. Good fellows, are they? Under that process they will not remain such, ilolluisca may "be found 200 fathoms down beneath" the Norwegian seas, Siberian stag get fat on the stunted growth of Altaian peaks,hedysarium grows amid the desolation of Sahara, tufts of osier and birch grow on the hot lips of volcanic Sneehattan, but a pure heart and an honest life thrive in a dissipating clubhouse—never. The way to conquer a wild beast is to keep your eye on him, but the way for you to conquer your temptations, my friend, is to turn yonr back on them and fly for your life. Oh, my heart aches! I see men struggling against evil habits, and they want help. 1 bare knelt beside them, and 1 have heard them cry for help, and then we have risen, and he has put one hand on my right shoulder and the other band on my left shoulder and looked into my face with an infinity of earnestness which the judgment day will have no power to make me forget as ho has crie'd out with his lips scorched in ruin, ;' God help me!" For such there is no 'help except in the Lord God Almighty. I am goSug to make a very stout rope. Yon know that sometimes a ropemaker will take very small threads and wind them together until after awhile they become ship cable. And I am going to take some very small, delicate threads r.nd wind them together until they make a very stout rope. I will take all tliii memories of the marriage day, a bread of laughter, a thread of light, 'a thread of music, a thread of bauquet- .ng, a thread of congratulation, and I twist them together, and I have one strand. Then I take a thread of the jour of the first advent in your house, a thread of the darkness that preceded, and a thread of the light that followed, and a thread of the beautiful scarf that little child used to wear when she jounded out at eventide to greet you, and then a thread of the beautiful dress in which you laid her away for the resurrection, and then I twist all these threads together, and I havo another strand. Then I take a thread of the scarlet robe of a suffering Christ, and a thread of the white raiment of your loved ones before the throne, and a jtring- of the harp cherubic, and a string of tho harp seraphic, and I twist them all together, aud I have a third strand. 'Oh, " you say, "either strand is strong enough to hold fast a world!" No. I will take these strands, and I will twist them together, and one end of that rope I will fasten, not to the communion table, for it shall be removed—not to the pillar of the organ, for that will crumble in the ages—but I wind it round and round the cross of a sympathizing Christ, and having fastened one end of the rope to the cross I throw- the other end to you. Lay hold of it! Pull for your life! Pull for heaven! YOUTH AND STRENGTH. Joseph Kohen In the Wonder of Athlete" aud Doctors. Joseph Kohen is only 20 years old, but Is already a rival of Sandow. His adiiiir ers believe that he is destined to be tho strongest man in the world. He has sustained a weight on his chest and knees of a piano weighing 1,150 pounds and nine men. a total weight of 2,140 pounds. Ju appearance he is liko a girl. In height he is about 5 feet 9 inches, and, while he is not fleshy, he tips the scales at 203 pounds. Although not nearly fully developed, Kohen has performed every feat of strength ever done by Sundow and many others besides at which Sandow failed. Kohen isa!.-n attracting the. attention of physi cians, having proved by careful training that tfrcat strength is in the reach of the weakest. Vntil two years ngo Kohen was a student iu a western Pennsylvania col- routa" of cnstomers. Mr. 0'Marrow was a little doubtful of Robert's ability, but ho said that bo would give Robert a commission on all the customers he _ conlt! get. So Robert started out and F mado a thorough canvass of the neigh- C C LD DUST WASHING POWDER boriiood, and he soon found nearly 80 families that agreed to take Mr. 0'Mar- row's goods if they were delivered promptly. Robert got up every morning at 5 o'clock and, mounted on his wheel, he -;vould take a big basket of bread and buns and deliver them to his customers. The basket was firmly fastened to the handle bar of his machine. He was BO prompt and pleasant that his customers increased to 50, and then he could not carry all of the bread in a basket. So he bought a little iron wagon and fitted a large basket inside of it. This he tied behind his wheel. Almost any morning those who get up early enough may sea him spinning along the streets of "Hyde Park with the bread wagon rattling along behind him. In this way F.obert, although ho is ouly 13 years old, has worked up a good business. He is making money, and Mr. O'Marrow never would think of parting with his services.

B B are two planks ou each side of the stall, each 16 inches wide and 6 feet long. Between these planks are the drain gutters and lath, D being the drain and L the laths. These laths are 2 inches thick, 3>< inches wide aud 6 feet long. They are rabbeted out underneath three-sixtceaths of an inch, so that the iron drains or gutters just fit under them. They are rabbeted up from the bottom \}\ inches. The method of fixing the drains and laths is shown in the end view, second cut, Fig. 2, L being the lath, with gutter between. The laths are fastened down by long screws, the heads well sunk in. They can be removed easily, if desired, to renew the lath or make any repairs. The iron drain or gutter is shown in Fig. 3.

Thi3 other day a blind man came down Madison street walking with his cane thrust out before him and tapping the walk from time to time to see that he was not running into anything. At La Salle street tbe crowd was dense and the cable cars and street traffic were clanging noisily by. For a moment the blind mail stood there undecided, not knowing which way to turn. The throng parted and left him like an island in a swift stream without offering to help him. On tbe corner a newsboy was calling the afternoon papers. He caught a glimpse of the old man and ran up, took his arm aad steered him safely across the street. Here he started him on his way again. Then he ran back to his flace. "N'oos?" he shouted, as if it was the most ordmary thing in the world to help blinci men across the street.—Chicago Beccrd. PIIM Spoiled »n Election.

The Mariiden process consists in saving tbe wa:;te of dry cornstalks. They are ground. The cellulose or pith is then separated, leaving a residuum of ground meal. The ratio in bulk is about one part of meal to one of cellulose. The ratio in weight is said to be seven parts or more of meal to one of cellulose. This dry meal has been fed to live stock for a long period at- the Maryland experiment station. It proves to be equsil to if not better than the best of hay in tbe production of meat and milk in combination with other food to miike it complete—that is to say, used in the same manner as hay is used as a p;irt of a ration. The cellulose will have a vast number of uses. The most conspicuous use will be in nhe construction of naval vessels. For this purpose it is compressed to 63^ pounds to the cubic foot, in which" condition it will absorb 20 times its volume of water. For naval purposes it is made into large blocks, each of which is placed in a cell in the steel tall of the ship, notably at the bow and stern, and between decks so aa to protect the deck over the vital point« of the ship, the center of the vessel being protected with steel plates.
