Why Not Co-Operate?
The lVtalunm Courier has an article
showing tliat tho agricultural producer
does not get his just proportion of the
price paid by the consumer for his prod

that have been spent in talking of co
operation that it Is time something were
done. The Courier is right. Uut "what
is everybody's business is nobody's
business" and each fanner is waiting for
some other man to make a move. When,
as shown by the Courier, the price of
eattle to the grower declines from $:U 7."

remedy lies in the establishment of a

One day a laboring man called at the

spade for a few minutes, saying that he
was at work near by; aud he was so re
spectful that I hastened to accommodate
him. Two days later Mr. Bowser, who
was working in the back yard, wanted
the spade, and I had to tell him that I
lent it. As it was not to he found, the
natural interference was that the bor

A PECULIAR PEOPLE.
Wlmt Wan Olwervot! on a Visit to a Danker
Town in IVmisvi vimtu.
Some fifteen miles from Lancaster by
turnpike and twenly by rail lies the
little village of Kphrata. It is a very
secluded, sleepy-looking little place, in
spite of the railroad that runs through
it, shut in by surrounding hills and by
a low line of mountains dignified bv
the name of Kphrata Ridge. The
houses of the town straggle along a
broad road which crosses the railroad
near the station, dips away until it
sweeps around in a curve over a bridge,
past an old mill in front of a broad
built red brick house, aud so away into
the country. The houses, generally
brick-built, in many cases old-fashioned,
are very comfortable and home-like.
Here one meets the Hunker per se in
everv bv-road and lane men with long
beards and flowing hair parted in the
middle. At the farm-houses are pleas
ant, matronly fact's, stamped with
humility and gentleness, while an air
of almost saintly simplicity is given by
the clear-starched cap. the handker
chief crossed on the breast, the white
apron, and the plain gray or drab stuff
on the dresses.
The style of living- of these good peo
ple, their manners and customs, are of
the most primitive type. Their aim is
to imitate the early Christians in their
habits of life as well as in their reli
gious tenets. There is absolutely no
distinction of caste among them.
They settled at lirst near Philadelphia,
in 11 spot which has since btvn called
Cennantown. from the various (lerninn
religious refugees who settled there in
the early part of the last century. The
sect is now chiefly confined to central
and western I'ennsy h auia, but has
spread to other States, principally those
of the Northwest, though there are
churches established in western Mary
land. West Virginia, and North Caro
lina. Their dress is of the simplest
description, (plaint ami old-fashioned
in its cut; they offer no resistance to
injuries; they observe no conformity
with the world and its manners and
customs; they refuse to take oaths in
courts of law: in these aud 111:111 v other
ways resembling the Society of Friends.
Some of their religious ceremonies
are exceedingly curious. They cele
brate the laud's Supper after the man
ner of the primitive Christians.
The feast begins about the time of
candle-lighting. The men are seated
upon one side of the liiceting-house.the
women upon the other. The lirst cere
mony is that of the washing of feet,
each sex performing this duty for its
own. Those who are to engage in the
ordinance presently enter the meeting,
carrying tubs of lukewarm water, ami
each member on the front benches re
moves his or her shoes and stockings.
A ma: on the men's side and a woman
on the women's then wash the feet one
by one. taking the right hand of each
individual, as they linish the washing,
and giv ing the kiss of peace. After
the one who perforins the washing fol
lows another, w ith long towel girded
afoiimi tue waist, w 110 wipes
just washed, at the same time giving
the right ham! and the kiss of peace.
As one hcuchful has the ceremony per
formed. it gives placetoanolhcr. While
this ceremony is being conducted, the
minister or teachers make a brief
speech or read appropriate portions of
Scripture relating to the subject.
The next ceremony is the supper it
self. Each third bench is so arranged
that the back can be turned upon a
pivot at each end. so as to form the
top of a long table. This is covered
with a white cloth, aud presently broth
ers and sisters enter, bearing large
plates or bow ls of soup, which are
placed upon the tables. Three or four
pcuplc help themselves out of the same
dish. After this the communion is ad
ministered, and the whole ceremony is
concluded by the singing of hy inns ami
preaching;. This the brethren hold is
the only true method of administering
ihe ordinance of the Last Supper, and
also hold that it is similar to that cere
oony as celebrated in the earlieat
Another peculiar ordinance among
them is that of anointing the sick with
oil, in accordance with the text in
James, v. M. The sick one calls upon
the elders of the meeting, and at a
settled time the ceremony is performed.
It consists of poiiringoil upon tho head
of the sick person, of aying hands upoti
them, and praying o er them.
The ordinance or baptism is ad
ministered in running; water and by
threefold immersion, the olliciating;
minister then laying his hands upon
tho recipient, who still kneels in the
water, and praying; over him or her.
Tho ministers or teachers, who re-
hceivo no stipend whatever, are elected
by the votes of the members of the
church, ho who receives tho largest
number of votes being pronounced
elected. These elections are summoned
by tho elders of tho church, who pre
side over them and receive tho votes
of tho people, either viva vocc.'m whisp
ers, or by closed ballots. If no candi
date has a majority, or if there are a
greater number of blank votes east
than for any one candidate, the elec
tion is pronounced void.
Such is a brief and condensed ac
countof these people.and their, religious
customs and ordinances. They are
called Dunkers, or Tunkers, from the
(lernian tun ken, which may bo inter
preted to dip, or probably "to sop'C is
a better equivalent word. They as
sume for themselves tho name Brethren
on account of the text, Matthew, xxiii.
8, "One is your Master, even Christ,
and all ye are brethren." They also
.sometimes call themselves "Clod's Pe
culiar People." Howard Pylc, in tr
One "Way to Carry a Baby.
A gentleman who was walking
through East street yesterday morning"
says the New Haven I'alludium, saw a
sight which amused him very much,
and he related the incident as follows
"A man and his wife came down the
street, one carrying a bouncing baby
and the other what looked like a ten
quart milk-pail. The man had the

it. He took the pail from his wife aw

WKtfCHLD RICH MEN.
Who Have Immense Fortunes but Take
Xo Further Interest in Life.
A woman writes to the Philadelphia
Free J'rr.ss from Long; Branch: "One
of the saddest things in the world next
to real poverty or distress is the sigh1
of a man who has acquired boundless
wealth ami has lost his happiness and
his capacity to enjoy what money
secures. Such cases are by no moans
rare. They are very common. I saw
a man to-day whose income is believed
to be about 1.000 a week, whose whole
day was spoiled because a cabman over
charged him 1 for a short ride. Of
course the millionaire knew he could
not possibly spend his income, but
nevertheless the idea of losing a dollar,
of being defrauded out of it. of getting
nothing in return for it. was almost
agony to him. Many a man in making
a great fortune completely loses the
power of enjoying it. This is one of
the world's compensations. The hap
piness of sound sleep ami a good di

an empty purse, while the millionaire

Female Army Olllcers.
The idea of making Queen Victoria
a colonel of Ccnnan dragoons h:is
struck a good many people as rather
odd. but it is said that female ollicers
were quite common in the British army
about l0 years ago. At that time, it is
said, persons who had a pull on the
government were in the habit of
