The world's fair will remain open Sun
days notwithstanding the influence of
the radical religionists and the saloon
keepers. The interest manifested by the
saloon keepers is easily understood. A
man cannot be attending the exposition
building and in a saloon at the same
time, but if he could not attend the fair
there would be some chance of his mak
ing a call on the saloon keeper. The
opposition offered in the name of religion
is not so easily explained. In fact there
has not been any explanation given
other th an that it is the outcome of the
old narrow puritanical spirit which holds
more to the letter than to the spirit of
the law. Sunday should be not only a
day of rest and religious observance, but
a day on which innocent recreation is
allowable. If a visit to the fair comes
within that limit, the opening of the fair
to provide innocent recreation on Sunday
afternoons cannot be considered a dese
cration of the Sunday. In view of the
fact, too, that many thousands of visitors
to the fair must be of the class who pay
no respect to the religious character of
the Sunday, it seems a matter of
common prudence to provide them with
a means of spending the day innocently
instead of leaving them to their own in
clinations and the numerous temptations
certain to be placed in their way. Then
again, it is a hardship to deprive so
many thousand of honest working people
of their opportunity to see the fair.
Hence the fair should be open Sunday,
as more evil is likely to result from Sun
day closing than from the opening.
Germany is a thorough old country.
In anticipation of the coming of cholera
the utmost preparations have been
made. For instance, all the wells of
Berlin have been examined, and out of
800 one-fourth have been declared unfit
for use and one-fourth more doubtful.
Similar examinations are to be made all
over the country. That reminds us that
there are a good many people in this
city who are still using well water. It
ought to be stopped, if necessary by or
dinance, because filthy water is the sea
in which cholera floats with more joy and
less friction than in any other. Oregon

SET THE CHILDREN TO WORK.
An Ingenious Englishman Who Combined
a Swing and a Much Needed Pump.
An English writer on inventive
geniuses tells a story of a certain August
Pirch, who is the possessor of a dozen
fine healthy children. Mr. Pirch, so the
story goes, had a tract of land that could
not be used for the want of water, since
it was far from any available stream
or other body which might prove of use
in the fertilization of his acres, and how
to irrigate the land without spending a
large sum of money was a mystery
whichf or a long time Mr. Pirch could
not solve. He figured out the cost of a
well, and found that his resources would
permit of his digging a sixty-foot well
and the-purchase of a cheap pump, but
how to make the pump work was a
question. Suddenly his inventive mind
suggested a solution. He remembered
his children and he also called to mind
a certain large family swing he had
seen in a neighboring town. He knew
the swing would please the children,
and he helped through it their pleasure
might be able to serve his interests.
The well was bored, the pump was set
up and the swing was put in working
"Here, now, boys," said he, when all
was ready, calling the children to him,
"come out here and get in this swing.
I'm going to give you something to play
In five minutes the children were fly
ing backward and forward through the
air. The pump worked up and down
gayly as you please and a fourteen-inch
stream of water flowed from the well.
Mr. Pirch s scheme had worked. The
children do not know they are working,
as the swing is some distance from the
well and is connected with it by an iron
rod which works the pump as the swing
moves backward and forward. The
scheme bas worked well, and it is said
that the youngsters pump enough water
during their day's sport to irrigate a
large tract. Harper's Young People.
A School Director Who Conflicted With
The reading class was standing in a
row upon the floor of an Indiana school
house, and a bright little fellow was
drawling a paragraph about a Roman
massacre. The president of the school
board was present on his regular tour
of inspection, and he pompously re
quested that the boy "read that verse
again." The "verse" was read again.
"Ah! h'm!" said the great man in a
loud voice, "why do you pronounce that
The boy was silent. "It should be
pronounced massakre," continued the
great man with a patronizing smile.
The boy remained quiet, but the
teacher finally spoke.
"Pardon me, sir," she said, "but' the
fault is mine if the word was mispro
nounced. I have taught the class to
pronounce it massaker."
"But why?" insisted the great man.
as a look of surprise was followed by
a look of pan upon his benign features.
"I believe that Webster favors that
pronunciation," said the teacher,
"Impossible," said the great man.
The dictionary was brought and the
president of the school board turned
over its leaves until he found the word.
There was breathless silence as he
looked up, for there the word was mas
saker. "I am astonished, madam, " he said, at
last, "that Daniel Webster should have
made such a mistake as that." Detroit
