Some people in this world aro good
because) it is good to bo good. Some
are good because they haven't energy
enough, to be bad. And some are
good because it pays. There is no
higher virtue than the virtue of being
virtuous for virtue's sake. Perhaps
this is -why the quality is so rare. Too
many people guide their conduct by
mercenary rules. They measure the
effect of their morality just as they
measure the probabilities of their
financial investments. A pious ex
pression is cultivated for the public
confidence it creates. A sweet unctu
ousness is acquired for the
influence it wields. A charita
ble consideration is employed for
the reputation it brings. A churchly
sanctity is worn for the soothing ef
fect it has upon the conscience.
True, it is not the politest thing to
question one's motives, but in this
world most motives are questionable.
Would that they were not! "What is
needed is a moro generous cultiva
tion of goodness for tho abstract com
fort it gives. There is no happiness
that equals tho feelings that follows

Paper Flonr Bass Kesnlt of Civil War,
The flour millers of tho northwest
have recently been in session at Buf
falo, H. x. Senator Arkell read a
paper on Bans and iiagging. Ilia con
nection with the subject treated be
gan about thirty years ago, when tho
cottcn bag was thedomestic muslinof
to-day, nipped on the selvage with a
pair of scissors, then torn and sewed
by hand. The sewing machine was a
great help soon afterward. During
the war the cost of a small cotton bag
holding 4'J lbs Hour was increased in
price from Cc to 30c, nud even more,
while barrels were worth 81.25 apiece.
This state of things led Mr. Arkell to
investigate and experiment on the
production of some form of container
that could be made in abundance and
cheaply. He was aided in this enter
prise by Uharlea uentiiuysen or Al
bany, a scientist, who gave him the
idea of utilizing old rope, luis ma
terial and Kentucky Hemp were after
ward successfully 'introduced in the
manufacture of paper baps of great
strength and cheapness. Nearly 100,
000,000 of these bags are now used an
nually in the United States, and
about as many more cotton sacks.
Senator Arkell believes the baper
bag is to be the bag of the future,
beoause it combines strength, is
non-sifting and cheap. Most of the
objections to this bag have been
overcome and they can be made at the
rate of 100 per minute. Jiuiietin.

her figure. Philadelphia Times.

"SNOBS AND SNOBBERY."
Caste Distinction the Rock That Threatens
Col. L. F. Copeland lectured last
evening to a large "and intelligent
audience on the subject of "Snobs
and Snobbery." TJnd.er this subject
he dealt particularly with caste, nnd
caste distinctions, and strongly in
veighed against tho introduction of
any form of -this vice into America, a
vice which would cause a wealthy
aud otherwiso indulgent parent to
cast a daughter into poverty and deg-
rauation simply because she would
marry the man of her choice.
He dealt first with the conmlete
stratification of English society. The
suop Keepers, me country aristocracy,
the titled nobility, all formed castes
which did not mix with one another,
socially, and above these was the
crowned blue blood. The lecturer
then went on to say, with a most in
describable facial expression and in
tonation of voice that In the free
republic of America we have no
castes," and centinued: "When we
say it, we lie like blazes."
Our constitution declares it to be
self evident that all men are freo and
equal, yet Americans have more caste
feeling than any people under the
snn. In England there was n class
of shopkeepers, but all in this class
Here in America we make a distinc
tion between tho man who sells in
the big shop and ho who sells in the
In European cities thero wero
fashionable localities, bnt tho locality
did not make tho people fashionable.
in American cities there was a caste
of locality. People who lived on
Fifth avenue. N. Y., were toney be
cause they lived there, even If they
had a cocoanut head and the brains
of & mule. Americans made more of
the caste of color than any olhor civ
ilized nation. At a fashiounblo din
ner in England where many men of
title were present he had sat oppo
site n darkey with kinky hair and
face as black as tho bottom of a fry
ing pan, When lie saw the darkey
receiving moro attention than was
accorded to himself, he could not
help thinking that he was in a place
more than -1,000 miles from whero the
Declaration of Independence was
Bignod. In shame, and to the ever
lasting disgrace of America be it said,
that whole wo proress not to believe
in caste we practice it more than any
other people. Nothing was so un
American as caste, and yet it consti
tuted a great and menacing danger
to our institutions in the futnrc.
Snobbery was tho outcome of
pride; pride was the offspring of ego
tism. The dandy dude or masher,
was only one of the family of snobs.
A pretentious man or woman of any
degree, whether born in a castle or
hovel, educated or uneducated, rich
or poor, was a snob.
He then spoke of the different
kind of snobs, such as tho
Blue Blooded Snob who based his
claim to distinction on the ncheive
ments of his ancestors. This class
did not' believe in the Darwinian
theory but were good illustrations of it.
It was not so much to a young man
what his father had done as what
he could do; not so important whero
he came from as where he
was going to. We had
no titled snobs here simply because
the wise men who framed our con
stitution had made it impossible.
Otherwise there were people who
would introduce the nuisance here.-
He scathingly rebuked thoso
mothers who bo wickedly cast their
daughters in tho way of such de
bauched reprobates as the prince of
Wales, lord Lansdowne, lord Marl
borough, etc., that they might waltz
with them, and theso men had put
their arms around the prettiest girls
in America, although their mothers
knew that their touch was polution.
He was very severe on the Anglo
maniac, tho dude and dudine, and
those people who apod the manners
and customs of the European no
bility. Ho inveighed against the caste of
religion, the snobbery of many fash
ionable churches, and the canting
snoo wuo always intruded his religion
and paraded his hypocrisy before the
world. The snob of superior culture
and the illiterate bore came under his
scathing criticism. He held Abra
ham Lincoln up as an example of a
lordly man, and in conclusion showed
the hard working, law abiding Christ
ian family to be the truly noble of
