OXE STEP AT A TIME.
n -vi yjjwmnEq ,.'.
Tnx man mIjo expects io jump from
tlif lowest tloptlis of poverty to the
heights of nilluence, or to go at one
bound from the veil of obscurity to
t the tctj snmmit of renown, may as
ull hope to innke one lenp from eartli
to heaven whenever he wills to do so.
Step by stop, round by round must
we slowly climb the hill of riches, the,'
peak of fame, or reach the highest po-.
sition in life which the good can pos-
sibly attain. j
Even- kind word uttered, every no
ble deed performed, every act wliich
shall lift up the head or cheer the
heart of a worn or weary brother is a
round in the ladder vc are building,
by which wc may rise above the lowly
earth aud its groveling, debasing
ideas, to the topmost round which
reaches the stare.
Brick upon brick, one at a time, the
mason rears the lofty walls of the im
mense building, which when com
pleted, towers far up towards the
ethereal blue of heaven's own limitless
canopy. So in life, one step at a
time, we rise liigher and higher,
by the things that are under
our feet, by all the grand victories
where we have conquered over avarice
and greed, by the pride we have
broken down, by all the degrading
passions we have overcome, and all
the vanquished ills which arc sure to
be met with in the journey of life.
Kemcmber this, young man or
young woman, and seek not for suc
cess at a single bouud, but be sure
that every day you make some ad
vauce up the hill, and realize that
a- the f-hades of night lower around
yon and obscure a view of the lofty,
citadel, towards which yon are jour
ue ing. that you aie nearer to it than
wlien the morning light of the now
closing da jiml dawned uKn you.
Be brave, le honest, be vigilant, be
faithful in every iosition you fill, and
then you "will go onward and upward,
o le step at a time.

Lozen-zo Sawtek, judge of the
United States circuit court in San
Francisco, has declared the ordinance,
recently passed, which provided for
the removal of the Chinese quarter

the circnit judge, wherein the rights
of the Mongolian are at stake.
Tex women in Oakland, Cal., yes

The steel cruiser San Franchco
has gone to Santa Barbara chaunel to
make a trial trip. From reports of the
vessel's work during runs made in San

but she will exceed' the government
requirement of nineteen knots an hour
and for the glory of Pacific coast
ship builders it is to be hoped she will.
Lemons for Soap.
Lemons are now used for soap in
many countries where they grow.
"When, for instance, the men and
women of the West Indies want to
wash their hands, they squeeze the
juice of a lemon briskly in water until
they are clean. There is an acid iu
the lemon similar to that used in soap.
And in countries where oranges grow
in great plenty country gentlemen
use the chcnie,st kind for blacking
their boots. The orange is cut in
two and the juicy side of one-half is
rubbed on the soot of an iron pot
aud then on the boot. Then the boot
is rubbed with a boft brush and a
bright polish at once appears.
