I never heard a person regret
planting tree if done with a foro-
sight; hut I have heard many bit
torly regret that they did not plant
more in their younger day. Houbt
lesi the story of tho aged grand
sir' shortsightednes i illustra
live. He wa minded to plant some
fruit tree, hut believing tho fruit to
bo a great many years in tho future,
ho sadly shook hi head and said it
was useless. Hi son found tho
samo objection; finally tha grand
aon ventured to act tho tree. They
grew thrifty and afforded abundunt
fruit for both fatherand grandfather
for tho several year they lived to
enjoy it, We neod to have more of
tho spirit of tho army oflioer who
planted a grape-vino by tho aide of
eyory house ho occupied. When
asked for an ox planatinn he said, "It
in not probablo I ahull ever aoo tho

A Scottish gentleman had occa

letter inquiring into his Into coach
man's character. Tho gentleman
replied that he wa a sober and ex

day hi lute coarhman came to him
to return thank for the excellent

"In aotting a battery to burn aw
dust," say a currcKndeut of the
"Safety-Valve" an engineer very
often ha a great deal of trouble to
get the Ixiilers to do their allotted
amount of work. A setting that is
found to lie just the thing under
one battery very often turniout to
Ih just the reverse under another.
Withja well -let saw dust furnace it
i almost lieyond belii fwlut an in
tense heat is had from the wet fuel,
It sometimes sec m a if tho boiler
make at much iteam a if coal was
the fuel used. There are innumer
able i'hme used in trying to get
the lxiler to do their mint. In
most case the furnace ia common
to all Isiilrrr, and that is to my, it
it built a if there wa only one
boiler. In nunc jnitance one fur
nace is built for each two. Then
otne furnaces are divided from the
bridgn wall; again, some have only
column on the bridge and at the
back end. I think, on tho whole,
that in those in which tho furnace
is common to all the Ixvilcr the
best result are had, although an
accident t one hoiltt will n-ei-
tate the doling down- of tl c whole
hattary. It it i.tfo to say that no let
ting for sawmill boiler is ever left
a when first built, the licit ar
rangement being obtained by the
cat and try plan. Thi may be
t.cered at by omo a being out of
late 4. the present time, hut let
them wrestle with a mill in which
the boiler capacity in mall and
they will cut and try also."
A I'IhIb Truth.
An exehaniro calls attention to
tho fact that, for a quarter of a cn
tury, on every Sunday somothing
emanated from Plymouth church
that was considered worth giving
to th world through the newspa
per. Nearly every sermon of the
gifted lleechcr wa worthy of pnbli
cation, and with good reason, too.
Hut all that ha been changed, and
tho mention of Plymouth church
is rarely heard now. Once a year
there was a sale of new, and tho
moit extravagant premium were
iftiU Tor choice, tho premium in
many caie being much larger in
amount than the rental of tho
pews themselves. The desire to
be distinguished as the foremost
man in Plymouth ha ceased, and
tho famous old church, with itgim
niensely wealthy congregation, jog
along us quietly and unpretentious
ly a if it had never had a reputa
tion abovo that enjoyed by tho
rank and file of tha churches. The
inirit that attracted crowd and
opened puro-stringi wido in behalf
of church and other commendable
enterprise, hu fled, and Plymouth
has lost, and apparently forever,
tho high prestigo that it onco en
joyed. In those respects tho famous
Brooklyn church docs not stand
alone. It him its counterpart in
nearly all largo citieH, from tho
lays of Chrysostom, tho golden-
mouthed, until the present time
churche that prosporod under cer
tain pastors, but whose death or re
moval left thorn more shells of their

The following story which wa
originally told by Wendell Phillips,
is reprinted in the "Forum":
"That mot cloquodt of all the
Southerner, nI think, Mr. Sargen
S. PrentiHs. of Mississippi, wa ad-
Iressing a crowd of 4XXJ people in
hi state, defending thn tariff, and
in tho course of an eloquent period
which rose to a beautiful climax, he
painted tho thrift, tho energy, tho
comfort, I ho wealth, the civilization
of the North in glowingcolor, when
there rose in the vision of tho as
sembly, in tho tqienj air, a horso-
man of magnificent proportion,
and juit at the moment of hushed
attention, when tho voice of Pren
tiss had ceased, and tho applauxe
wa about to break forth, the horse
man exclaimed: 'J n the North!'
The cure was so much in unison
ith the habitual fueling of a Mia
sissippi audience ihat it quenched
their enthuiam, and nothing but
respect for the epeaker kept them
from cheering tho horseman. Pren
tiss turned upon hi lame feet and
aid: 'Major Moody, will you rein
in that horso a moment?' He as
sented. The orator went on: 'Ma
jor, the horse which you ride came
from tho upper Missouri; the saddle
that surmount him camo from
Trenton, New Jersey; the hat on
your head came from Danbury,
Connecticut; the Isxit you wear
came from Lynn, Massachusetts;
the linen in vourihirt i Irit-h, and
Boston made it up; your broad
cloth coat i of Lowell manufacture,
and was cut in New York; and if
to-day you should lurrender what
you owe tho'd d North' you would
sit stark naked.' "

SOMKllllNU NKW IS WATCH KS,
lleiinitirully Sealed anil Kiiniiing Tor
Ho entered a Maiden Lane shop
and asked for a watch.
"I want something that will keep
time," ho said.
Tho dealer brought a small vel
vet rug and placed two watches on
it, one a superb gold instrument
and the other a nickel-plated.
" Ho you recommend these?"
" We do."
" Whose works?"
"This," touching the gold one,
" is by a well-known maker. I can
not say who made tho other."
" Both Swiss?"
" And tho prices?"
"For the cold one 3I."; for tho
other $G SO."
" Six dollars and a half against
$31,")! Both keep time; one keeps
as good time a tho other. Do you
really recommend thi nickel af
" Wo do. Wo have sold numbers
of them and have never heard a
complaint. No such watch can be
inndo in this country for anything
like tho price. It seems chea
enough at $0 r0, but you know
there is a duty of 25 per. cent, on
it, besides which wo mako a emal
profit. I dare say tho sumo watch

watches and clocks, which, soonc
