Where Disease Is Bred. "When a Kirst is clogged or choked •m the accumulations poison the atmosphere in its vicinity and bring »boot the conditions that breed dis- cex. We all know that in time of •pestilence every precaution is taken, iot only to keep ihc sewers free and ,t>aen, but even to remove all decaying •mutter from tlie community. The danger of infection i> thus minimized. How-few-of us who pay taxes for the tnnintennnce of sanitary bureaus for the public health think of an equal requirement for our individual welfare. The alimentary canal is the great »rwer of the human system. When that is dammed up conditions are generated which invite fevers and sucli diseases as our nature inclines to.

As IK: rod.- ho thnsw hini- nclf out of his lisk'-d siirroundinfrs by hope. He bad lontfea to command a regiment, and be had also lonRed to visit Europe, and have his wife sharo hissight-seeinc. And it was a favorite sort of hoping dream of his, as ho rorle homeward in that empty wood-cart m the "athorinff evening, to think ol himself as apain in the array, and Uns time as full colonel; and then to thmlr of himself as, with Mrs. Grant, making the tour ol Europe. Foolish enough such hoping seemed lor a poor farmer jogging homeward in the dusky sunset in an empty wood-cart. But the hope was inspiration to him. And the reality of it all at last burst tho bounds of his most daring dreaming. Hoping thus, even in Gen, Grant's then- circumstances, was vastly better business that a weak bewailing of his hard and hostile plight. And it is a noteworthy fact that, all through tho war, every one of Gen. Grant's utterances and dispatches had in it this note of hope somehow sounding. I do not think you can find anywhere in them so much as the shadow of a suggestion ot despair, or of ultimate defeat. "I've just got back from Washington, where I've been since the election trying to get an appointment,' said a politician. "Gave up hope, «h?" said a sympathizing friend. "0 no," was the quick reply. >• c»me home to hope. It's cheaper to hope here." I like that, my friend hope anyway. Get, if you must, the cheapest place to hope, but hope. I think we should refuse to lose hope, even in such hard times as now grip us —for one reason, because God is. l like much that snatch from "Luther s Table-Talk:" "At one time Iwassorely vexed and tried by my own B itifuln«ss, bv tlie wickedness of the world, and by the dangers that beset the church. One morning I saw raj wife dressed in mourning. Surprised, I asked her who had died. 'Do you not know?' she replied; 'God in Heaven is dead.' How can you talk such nonsense, Katie? I said; 'how can God die? Why, He is immortal, and will live through all eternity.' 'I* that really true? sho asked. 'Of course,' I said, still not perceiving what she wns aiming at; 'how can you doubt it? 'As surely as there is a God in Heaven, so sure is it that Ho can never die.' 'And yet,'-she said, •though you do not doubt that, yet you are so hopeless and discouraged.' Then I observed what a wise woman my wile was, and mastered my sadness." Have you ever thought, my friend, of the worst loss which can como to a man? Loss of property? That is a sad loss, but not tho worst. Loss of friends? That is a sad loss, but not the worst. Loss of opportunity? Nor Is that the worst of losses. Loss of hope, when the heart dies, and the i.-onraprc fails, and tho hands hang listlessly, and a man begins only and sadly to drudge— this, tho loss of hope, is tho blackest- lots. —United Presbyterian.^ NOT ^"FRUITLESS LIFE. Th. In.itlm.ble V»lo« In RusnlU of S.W- BBOrlflco. James Brady is a mechanic. He had a satisfactory position as foreman of o machine shop, and easily supported his wife and two boys. The boys owera twelve and fourteen years old, and went fih'im the promise o*t.n unusual m»n "What would you Ilka to do?" »he asked him one evening, as he left the paper at her door. "I would like to go to the Tech some time," he replied wistfully. "The Tech?" repeated the lady. The boy explained that he meant tho Institute of technology. She was not prepared for so large an expenditure as this would involve, and made but little reply, but she did not forget the lad's commendable wish. As the times grew worse the struggle for existence in the Brady family was intensified. The ladswere incessant in their endeavors to find more lucrative work, in order to support the father and mother. One day just then came great news. Preparation for a scholarship at the "tech" was offered to George, the elder boy. "I am sure you will do credit to it," said the good woman, his customer and friend. Then, like so many benefac- tors.inconsiderato.yet klnd.she thought no more about him. Tho lad was conscientious, ambitious, grateful and industrious to a pitiful degree. He could not give up his paper route, for on that the family lived; so be sat up until twelve o'clock utni"ht studying: rose usually,at four, and "took his meals where he coultl. He was only fifteen years old and over- jt-rown. : For three months he went to school. One clay ho came home late from distributing his evening paper. Though unusually cheerful, lie said lie was vn-y tired. Ho tried to study, then full asluup in his chair, and soon went to bed. . When his brother tried to wake linn the next morning, the lad made no answer. A physical! was called. He examined to poor, \\-ornout body and said tliat them was no disease but exhaustion. The boy was dead from overwork. In the lad's pocket was found a little book. It was a small-print New Testament. In it several blank leaves had been pasted, and upon these were the pathetic accounts of the daily expenditure of money, by tho poor boy, written in the most precise manner. Now, for the first time, tho family learned that he had been living at the rate of four cents a meal, that being his high- tst allowance. The wonder is how he lived as long as he did. And now when it was too late, pitying friends sprang up on all sides—as is ofted tho case. Too late? "What a waste of life!" they said. Tho shock from the death of his son roused the father from his long stupor. He was fortunate enough to be taken back to his old position. The remaining boy was well taken care of, and well repaid the care that he received. The fortunes of tho family turned; and from the date of their great grief their power to help themselves was assured. *.nd the will of others to help them was wiser in its purpose. Tho dead lad's sacrifice wrought for those he loved the very blesiing which he would have chosen for them had he lived. Must necessarily such suffering and Buch a death be called a waste? Sacrifice seems to be essential to the development of all that is noblest and best in men. Our dull moral perceptions do sometimes clearly see that whoso "loseth his life" unselfishly "finds it again."—Youth's Companion. Miles Soon to Bo Transferred to New York. A Fighting Goncral Whose Name Tl Synonym for Bravery-Hit F»moUi Campaign Agslnnt the Nez Perce Indian*. Tho American people know Gen. Miles pretty well. The soldier boys know him better. lie is the greatest Indian fighter on record, and he will succeed Gen. Howard as commander of tho department of the east, with headquarters on Governor's island. In 1861 he entered the army as the first lieutenant of IL Massachusetts company, being then twenty-two years of age. Four years later he was the possessor of a brevet major-general's commission and three bullet wounds. Ho is not a West Pointer. His book knowledge of war, says the New York World, was gained in his tent by tho light of a candle after the other officers were in bed. The rest he learned at the cannon's mouth. While his opinions of the Indian may not be so severe as that of the Indian lighter who said that the only good Indian is a dead one, he has never givpii the American aborigine the credit o.f having Quakerish virtues. The Choycmios and the Arapahoes in ISTOwcrc the first to meet him, and, with the exception of one or two inconsequential outbreaks, they have been a \vell-bohaveil lot over since. After tho massacre of Cus-tc-r, Crook and Terry retreated from the triumphant Sitting Bull and left Oen. Miles to re-main quiet and keep a lookout, lint instead Gen. .Miles started in pursuit of Sitting Hull and in two feet of snow met this wilv old warrior and scattered his band. 'Because of his hardihood the Indians dubbed Gen. Miles "Bear Coat," and by this name he has since been known among tho Sioux.

One day Mr. Brady completed an invention that he thought would bring (treat wealth. It was patented. He interested friends in It. Money was borrowed to bring It to the notice of the public. He gave up his foremanship of the machine shop, and-hke hundreds of men before him who have the Inventor's mania-lost all The failure was complete; so complete th»t it extinguished the inventor's ambition and left him weak and incapable of work. At that time-for this Is a true story -the family would have starved had not the boys nobly given themselves absolutely to its support. They took an extended newspaper route and divided it between them. How much did they earn? Just seven dollars a week. On that pittance the four persons lived »nd paid house rent. The elder of the boys, a fina, manly fellow, showed so much pluck and good ....«»thit ha attracted the attention of working ror miiuiu. "I work for results," said one in defense of his methods In Christian work. That is well. To work unmindful of results is supreme folly; it is waste, perversion. But still the question of how to accomplish the best results remains. One builds on the surface; his work shows at once, but when the frost come, it is unsettled. Another lays the foundation deep in the ground and on solid basis; generations after, his work stands and has blessed every generation as it passed.—United Pres- tyterian. „ HELPFUL HINTS.

In that campaign 7,000 redskins were subjugated or killed. Everybody remembers how lien. Miles cooped up the Apache, Geronimo. He led his men for weeks over rocky mountain sides and ««»" *™ stretches of sand, under a broiling hot sun, clad in nothing but their underclothes. Veterans of tho English wars in Africa and India have declared that they had never seen tho equal of that experience. In the southwest Gen. Miles' name is a synonym for bravery. What Gen.

It moved along rapidly—only a summer shower. To the left, along the bluff, the gentle drops of rain were falling with lullaby-like patter on the thickly- clustered trees of the hillside forest I had dismounted from my wheel, and was watching the progress of tho storm that, passing so near me, had not touched me. But, all at once, with a mighty roar like the rending of the heavens, a dark greenish cloud with tints of yellow and black, its massive folris writhing in and out like serpents at battle, emitting vivid flashes of lightning, came over tho bluff a quarter of a mile cast of me. It was shaped like a huge top, its irregularly-formed upper half revolving rapidly while the lower end swept tha earth along a path a quarter of a mile wide. Startled :is I was, I could not take my eyes from this awful messenger of destruction. The crash of the build ings first struck filled the air with fly ing- debris, in which fragments of houses, furniture, trees, farming irn plements, haystacks and telegrapl poles-all were propelled by a wonder fill, irresistible current of ruin and dis aster. Eighty rods wide the death-dealing cyclone swept along, skirting the bluff, whore it stripped foliage and bark from the trees, and DOW and^ then swooping down on some farm, bo suddenly did the storm burst that many had'to lice with all speed to their cyclone cellars, the only safe refuge from these fearful storms. After a course of half a mile along the bluff, the funnel-shaped monster swerved to the right. It swept through huge wheat fields, where it snapped off the drooping- heads of the almost ripened grain, and then tore on through the little village of Williamstown, transforming what was the moment before "a lovely village of the plain into a scene of devastation. Houses, barns and other buildings were destroyed, and human beings carried through space as if they were but feathers. Many lives were lost and many homes literally swept from the face of the earth. There were many miraculous escapes, A baby, sixteen months old, was discovered by the roadside several hundred yards away from the house, asleep and uninjured. An old lady sixty years old was carried a mile from her home and lodged safely in the wide-spreading branches of an. oak tree, unhurt. A family of six sought refuge in a small space under the stairs; the house was carried away •with the sole exception of that portion, and the family escaped injury. A house was completely swept away, but the family cat and her kittens under the porch were not disturbed.-John M. Stcele, iu St. Nicholas.
