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 fruit of any of these vines, yet somo one will surely enjoy it and bo made happy." Diligence, industry, and a proper Improvement of time, are materia! duties of the young.

"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 former selves, indicating tho fact that up in tho popularity of tho preachor in a great measure deponds tho numerical and financial proa perity of a church, but that as a gonoral thing where there is- bo much clerical popularity there in not a corresponding amount of spir ituality and genuine religion. No man can bo truly great until ho ban gainod a knowlodgo of himself. Charity, like the sun, brightuns every object on which ItHhines. Nlory of K, H. .'rends. 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.' " A Voire from .Maine. The sooner the friends of prohi bition in Maine abandon all ho that it will everl' completely effect ive while human passions and ap xtite are what they are to-day, and confine themselve to claiming that under all the circumstances, it will accomplish more restriction of the liquor traffic than any other measure yet invented, the xmer they will compel it em-mica to judgo it fairly. Judgrd by the t'.'ft of complete suppression it is, as its enemies sav, a failure. Judged however, by the comparative test, which i tho only fair one, it has been demonstrated by actual trial to be superior, in this state at least, to high license. We are not pre pared to say that there may not be places in thi stare where public sentiment so feebly supports the prohibitory law that a high license law would be more ell'ective, but in the great majority of the towns of the state the case is-otherwise- Portland (Maine) Press. SOMKllllNU NKW IS WATCH KS, lleiinitirully Sealed anil Kiiniiing Tor 'Three Yar. 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?" " Moth." " 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 fair?" " 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 can be bought in Paris for twenty francs. "Those foreigners have recently mado remarkable improvement in watches and clocks, which, soonc or ltitor, will bring about a complete revolution in horology. A journey man clock-maker in tho neighbor hood of Lyons has invented a mcth od oi making a lady s watch go without being wound up during whole year, a man's watch during throo years, a pendulum of middling sizo twenty years, and a public clock for a space of two hundred and eighty years, " He makes wotchesof sosmall a ize that thoy aro worn in finger ring, taking the place of a seal, and require winding up once in fifteen day.

Fifty francs will buy one like it now. " There is one great drawback to these watches. They can be wound up only by the inventor himself, or those acquainted with his secret.

Kri'-Mon was of a robust constitu tion and remarkable power of en during continuous sedentary appli cation, but it is not so well known that he wa posesed of enormous physical strength. Of this he was not vain, nor waB it often exerted; he huibanded his resources with iealou care, with a view to their exixsnditure in useful wore. in one or two instances, however, his muscular power was displayed in a startling manner. He wa always very particular alxnit the quality of both material and workuianihip, and on one occa sion during the construction of an engine at Delamater's a certain casting appeared to him doubtful as to soundness, and he ordered it to be broken up. And possibly sus pecting that blowholes might be plugged, or th siiipected piece made to do duty in eome way he in sisted on haying it broken on the spot. Some stalwart workmen at tacked it with heavy two-handed sledges, but failing to make an im pression they desisted at length, saying, "We'will put it under the dri.p by and by." His quick tem per mio at this, but he spoke not a word; with hi right hand he snatched the sledge from the near est man, and in a moment it whirled like a meteor before theaa tonished ictator, the ponderou tool driving it head at th first stroke through the shell of the du bious casting, making it a hopeless reck. He tossed away the slt dge i if it had been a jack straw, and turning on his heel strode away ith the remark, "Now you may put it under the drop." During one of his visits or ln- pection to the .Monitor, wmie n- woa building, he was annoyed by tripping once or twici over a heavy ar of iron. Turning to two work men, near at hand, he asked them to remove it, but they said it was too heavy.

The two men were amazed, as well they might be, to lee a sii'gle man already nearly l0 years of age, dealing in this suni mary way with a matter they had not ventured to meddle with, lhey nroeured some assistance at noon time, and out of curioiity weighed ' . . . a the offending bar, which showed upon tho scales nearly a third of a ton. A correspondent at Washington writei: "Reed is the first man I have seen in the Speaker's chair who could get absolute quiet on the floor of tho house when a document is to be read ora member desires to address the house. In that respect he is making an admirable presid ing oflicer. If there is confusion on tho floor he stops all business and will not let it proceed until order is completely restored."
