18 ever A Boy s Story. A lawyer Baid about this Etory tnat I am to relate to you: "It me best boy's story that I heard." UW 1 1 ' l i re nave nau a good many boys with us from time to time" said Mr. Alden the senior mem ber of a large hardware establish ment m market street Philadel- phia "as apprentices to learn the business. What may surprise you is that we never take country boys unless they live in the city with some relative who takes care of them and keeps them at home at night; for when a country boy comes to the city to live every- thing is new to him and he is at- tracted by every show window and unusual sight. The city boy ac- customed to these things cares lit- tle for them and if he has a good mother he is at home and in bed In &? gsasgn. And we are very particular about our boys and be- fore accepting 6he as an appren- tice we must know that he comes l Ji??st and industrious parents. ''But ths best boy we ever had is now with us. and a member of thd firm. He is the ...

Jt'or five or six minutes the other afternoon a patrolman stood at the foot of Woodward avenue along side of a young man who had satchel in his hand and was wait ing for a ferryboat. At length as the officer started to saunter away the young man handed him a cigar and said: "lnanKS. i ll always remem vfeer your kindness."

WHEN THE rtEWS COMES IN. Busiest Night of the Year In a News paperOfflce. There is one night in every year in every great newspaper office when work' is done that is the least understood of all that goes on in the making of a daily paper: one night when the highest state of fever attends the excitement and strain of the most intense work that falls to the lot of any men except Boldiers in war. That is election night. That is the night w'hen a few men sit down at 6:00 o'clock before virgin sheets of paper with the knowledge that be- fore 2 o'clock the next morning they must cover those sheets with the election returns of u nation digesting mountains of figures and apprising the public of the results in the most condensed forms weeks in advance of the official an- nouncements as sparks might be counted while they fly from the shapeless iron on a blacksmith's anvil. And these calculations must stand the test of comparison with those which the rival newspapers working without collaborat...

Girlhood's Charm In Woman. The woman who keeps the simplic- ity of her girlhood its generous impulses and quick sympathies! and who adds to her natural gifts th6 enlargement of study and the crown of experience is always at her best and never pass it. When the exterior attractions of form and color diminish and depart as they mostly do the radiance of our in ner illumination will more than compensate their departure. But in order that this should be so her moral must equal her intellectua gain. She must be willing to learn not only her own powers but her own defects also and to court the good influence which can help her to escape from the delusions sense and the fatal tyranny of self- consciousness sne must discard the petty measures of vanity and self-seeking and learn to love her race her country and the human- ity which she should help to a- dorn.

A Short Sermon to Country Editors. . At this season of the year we find our country erchanges full of notices "to delinquent subscrib- ers."

Now all you little boys sit over there while I make you a lit- tle speech. Whenever I say any- thing that is true and you can en- dorse you must slap your hands and yell. Gpntlemen and Fellow Starv- ers: I arise this evening to dis- cuss the subject of subscription and advertising in country papers.

Undesirable Immigrants. Many of our public men are be- ginning to realize the truth that a greater peril for the American peo- ple lies in unrestrained immigra- tion that can be found in any tariff measure or perhaps in any finan- cial system which could get the approval of congress arid the pres- ident. In a discussion recently from a matter of public interest the re- mark was made by one who has thought much and deeply on the subject that the great danger to re- publican government in America comes from two sources: one of them the spread of anarchy and the other the dumping into our communities of great companies of foreigners who know nothing of our institutions and who' have no conception of the necessary limits of liberty. It is not difficult to see that these two things are closely connected and that the first of them may be regarded as a necessary conse- quence of the second. The idea thus advanced is one which seems to.be taking deep root. In our greater cities the perils h...

Down' where he came from they often had people stranger folk who put ques- tions about byways and such things and lie was always glad to answer them even going so far as to put them into the right path if they had any doubt about their ability to fol- low his directions which were mi- nute to a degree. He therefore had no compunction about putting a ques- tion or two himself seeing that he was not upon his nafcve heath and if city folk had half the politeness ascribed to them he would find out just what he wanted to know.

A WOMAN AND A WATCH. The Tatars That a Woman Will Do to Aggravate a Timepiece. Perhaps a woman can't sharpen pencils and throw stones in just the orthodox way but she can take care of a watch. Her ministrations be- gin with winding a watch which .she never thinks of doing unless she is going shopping or on a journey. Then if she doesn't break the main- spring she tucks the watch inside her dress where the multitudinous hooks and buttons scrape and scratch the case and where it requires a half hour's investigation when she wants to see what time it is. At night when she takes off her drees she sends it whizzing under the bed as she throws back her bod- ice preparatory to wrestling her way out of it If it stops she isn't at all disconcerted. With a serenity born of long experience she picks it up and shakes it until it ticks again. After all it is only the unusually careful woman who wears her watch inside her dress for the intricate fastenings of the fashionable bodices render it wel...
