The street car official stopped the ear

very pertinouUf not approprlnte,at thia
time, ami wt give It space:
I always read tho conversations
which ,ic publlahet between a father
and his lmiilalttve hny, and every
time I read nne It reinliids me of a on
veraallou between a father and hla son
of which I have either read or dreamed.
It went somewhat thus:
Wlmt place is that, pn?
That is a briekynrd, my son.
Vhoee brickyard is It, pn?
It taOniigs to me, my son.
Ih) nil thoeo big piles of brick belong
Yea, my sou; every brick of them.
My! how long did it take you tomake
them? Did you tnnke them all nloiie
No my son; thoeo men you see work
ing there mnke tiiein for me.
lh the men belong to you, pn?
No, my son; tliow men are free men.
No man can own another. If he could,
the other would be n slave.
What Is a slave, pn?
A shive, my son, Is a mini who Iiiuj
to work fur another nil hia life for only
his hourd nnd clothes.
If u slave gets sick, who pays for the
Well, his owner duct; he can't alVord
to loae ills property.
Wliy do nieu work so hard, pn? IH)
they II ko It?
Well, no, I iipx86 they do n't; but
they must work or starve.
Are these men rich, pa?
Not to any great extent,, my son.
Do they oy,n any Iioumoh, pu?
I ruther guexs not, my son.
Have they horses nnd nice clothes,
and do they go to the "enable when He
warm, like we do, pit?
Well, hardly; it hikes them ull their
time to work for their living.
Wlmt Is a living, pu?
Why, a living-well, for'theni a living
Is what they cat aud wear.
Ih n't that bourd and clothes, pu?
' I tuippoae It Is.
. W ell, are they nny better off Uiuu
, Of course they are, you foolltdi boy.
Why t hey 're free; they do n't hnve to
work lor me if they do u't like; they
can leave whenever they choose. S
""And If they leave,' won't they have
Yes, of course they will; they will
have to work for someone else,
" Atul will they gut anything more
than a living from hlni?
No; I suppoae not.
Well, then how are they any bettor
off than slaves? . ,
Why, they have votes; they are free
If they get sick do you pay for tho
doctor, pa? '
Oaten tiiel What have I got to do
with It? They niiist pay for their own
Can you ailbrd to lose one of the men
who work for you, pa?
Of comne I can; It do n't. make any
dlllcrenoe to mo. lean hire another
whenever I like.
Then you are u't so particular about
them us If they were your slayes, are
No; I suppose not.
Then how 1b it hotter for them to be
Oh, do u't ask foolish questions, boy.
tWhut are bricks made of, pa?
Of oluy, my son,
Do the bricks belong to the men
when they make them, pa?
No, my son, they belong to me.
Why, when the men makt them?
Ileeauae the clay Is mine.
Did you make It, a?
No; (Jod made It, my son.
Did he makt It for you, pa?
No, I bought It.
llought It from Clod?
No, from a man.
Did tht man buy It from (lod?
No, of course not; bo bought It from
another man, I sunpotH,
Did the II ret man It was bought from
buy it from (lod?
Oh, I iloji't kuow, I suppose lit just
Then If those men should claim It
now, would It be theirs?
Oh, bother, do n't be asking such
' If you did n't own the brickyard and
tho clay, how would you make your
Oh, I fdo 'n't know. I suppose I
would have to work.
Would you make bricks pa?
Maybe I would.
How would you like to make bricks
for only lainnl and clothes, and let the
man who claimed the brickyard have
Nolaidy 'd care how I liked it Poor
people must work for their living.
If these men hud brickyard of their
own, would lliey work for you, pa?
Not likely; they'd work for them
Is n't It lucky that that manclnlmrd
this laud first and that you bought It?
If he had u't maybe somebody else
would have claimed it, and then may
be one of these men would own It
now, aud then you 'd have to work
for him for your bonrd'aiid clothes.
Maybe. You ought to be thanklul
to Providence for Ills goodliest to you
In giving you a father who can support
you without working.
Humid thtwe men's little boys be
thankful to Providence, too, pa?
Well, I siipHiae they should.
What fur, pa?
Oh, because their (mi's have steady
Is steady work a good thing, pa?
Of course It ia, my son.
Then why do u't you work, pa?
Nobody could keep you from making
bricks, could they?
No. I tlo n'tant to keep men out
of a Job. If I worked there would n't
tie a job for another man.
That's kind of you, pa. Do you think
if you was to wheel that mail's barrow
once whllo he rested, be VI get mad
Oh, pshaw, gentlemen do u't wheel
What's gentlemen, pa?
Why, gentlemen men who do n't
need to work the upper olass.
I thought there was n't any upjior
classes in this country. I heard a man
say all men were equal.
The man who said It was a socialist
or anarchist, or something; or maybe
It was at election time aud he was try
ing to catch vote.
Hay, pa, my Sunday-school teacher
say wo are all Clod's children. Is she
a siM-lallst or an anarchist, or Is she
trying to catch votes?
Oh no; that ' the right thing to say
in Hundny'achools and churches.
Well, pa, honest now, art these men
Clod's childrcu juxt as much as we are?
Wliyjee, my ton, to tie sure they are.
frtoy, pa, do you remember when you
bought that dozon allies for brother
Jim and me and I grabtad them all
and made Jim give me his top before
I'd let him play with them aud you
called me a greedy llltlo hog and gave
me a licking?
Yes, ray son, I remember.
Well, do you think you did right?
Certainly, my son, a parent does
right to correct his children and keep
them from acquiring bad principles. I
bought the marbles for you both. Jim
had as much right to them as you.
Well, pa, if those men are God's
children just as much as you, then you
and them are brothers, ami if you make
them give you nearly all the bricks they
make for allowing them the use of the
elay which God made, is n' t that the
same as me making Jim give me his
top for a chance to play with the
Oh, bother; do n't ask such stupid
Hay, pa, do you think God thinks
you arc a greedy little hog, and that
he will puulsh you for grabbing that

Ban Fiiancihoo, August 30, 1802.
Mit, Euitoh: When I left your town
hwt Thursday, In company of Mr. and
Mrs. Fred Douiy, I had no Idea we
should have to swallow so much of the
proverbial peck of dirt; but 'we surely
had more than our share. Arrived ut
Ynqulna, we took tho boat for New
port, and In half an hour's sail, landed
amid a couple of hundred of tho guests
sojournl ng there. I saw many familiar
faces, and was cordially greeted on all
sides, and was surprised to see how they
had fattcnod on fish and fresh air.
Some of them had to let out a reef in
their bathing stilts, having gained so
much In avoirdupois, nnd their com.
plcxlono were well tanned from sitting
on the beach singing, "What are the
wild waves saying, love?" I left, on the
boat at 8 a. m. for Yaqulna, where I
went on board the steamship Wlllam
ette Valley, where I found two ladles
who were with me on the up trip. We
were mutually pleased to meet again
a nd we enjoyed every moment on board,
a 1 we were not seasick, and we received
every courtesy from the officers, and

The "Royal" the Strongest and
Purest Baking Powder.
Whether any other baking powder is equal to
"Royal," let the official reports decide. When
the different powders were purchased on the open
market and examined by Prof. Chandler, of the
New-York Board of Health, the result showed that
Royal Baking Powder contained twenty-seven
per cent, greater strength than any other brand.
When compared in money value, this difference
would be as follows : ;
If one pound of Royal Baking Powder sells
for 50 cents,
One pound of no other powder is worth over
36 cents. ,
' If another baking powder is forced upon you
by the grocer in place of the Royal, see that you
arc charged the correspondingly lower price.
The air was rather cold, being the only
drawback we encountered 011 the jour
ney. My hostess was more than glad
to see me again, aud had a number of
our friends here In tho evening, so it
was a Joyful feunloa Yesterday w
walked around for hours; In the even
ing we attended the California theater,
said to be the finest In America, to wit
ness the great spectacular naval drama,
"The Kiisign," There was not a vacant
seat in the whole building, aud there
was not a hitch in the entire perlorm-
auce, the members of the trotqie being
perfect lu their parts. The scenes were
picturesque, aud the dresses grand.
The mornings, at present, are cold
and foggy, but about 11 o'clock the sun
comes out warm and bright; and I find
myself exclaiming, "California, with
all thy faults still I love thee!" Fruit Is
delicious ami; abundant; strawberries
are refreshing, aud the muskmelona,
Burtlutt tears, and grapes, more than
palatable; and we etijoy tome of them
at every meal. To-day I shall coui-
meuce house hunting not a pleasaut
undertaking. When settled I will
write you again. In the meantime I
shall hall with pleasure the arrival of
the W'kst Hide to keep me posted on
tho movements of my numerous friends.

similar to a half-dollar piece that was
