The mo6t significant of the series of
remarkable events at the world'B
fiir, unquestionably, is the Congress
of Religions. Such a tbluK has never
before been seen in the world, and
its importance cannot be easily over
estimated. The spectacle of all classes
ofChrtetiaBS, not only, but representa
tives of all kinds of religions, meeting
in an amicable and considerate spirit
may fitly be regarded as a great bistort
c I occurrence, a tpleudM and beieu
cent triumph in the development of
civilization. It shows dlstiuctly and
impressively bow the world is mov
lug, and what wonderful changes
have taken place. The pro
gress of the race is reflected it
it with peculiar Interest and encourage
ment; and we arc assured in a practical
way that the age of persecution foi
opinion's sake has bee n succeeded bj
an epoch of rational aud friendly toler
ation. Men are no longer tortured on
account of their religious belief, but an

latlon. The time has gone by for tbr
kind of BDirltual zeal that once made
Christianity a terror and turned its bes'
Impulses and purposes to mockery. It
has been learned in the course of gener
al experience that people may dlflei
about religion as about anything else,
and yet live together on terms of mutu
al resrject and appreciation. The les
son Is profound and far-reaching, and
soeclal profit is to be derived from the
close study of It.
CONSIDER TUB TICKERS.
The Puyallup Citizen sayB the bos
pltable North Yakima has been feed'
ing at municipal expense, the horde of
people who prematurely came into that
city in search of labor Incident to hop
picking. This has been done al the In
stance of the city council and their ac
tion was generally approved by the
growers and business men of tho ylcln
ity. But there bus nevertheless been a
minority that strenuously opposed this
humane and well advised action. Now
that picking has fairly begun It has
been found that 0000 would not be re
quired to pick even the 12,000 bales
that were so wisely estimated, and
that it will be difficult to register over
3000 pickers in all the district. Present
Industrial depression has greatly fa
voted Yakima with a surfeit of pickers
that were easily and inexpensively oh
tallied, and it would bo but flying in
tho face of Providence to glvo cold
treatment to a class of working people,
' that under other conditions, would
have beeu difficult aud expensive to
gather. It was but a few years ago
that Indian pickers were given a bonus
of $7.60 each to work for jtho growers of
White river, whllo paying (he furo of
pickers to aud from long distances, has
often been done by the growers of the
Bound. It could have been easily for-
teen that this season there would bo u
surfeit of pickers In every district In
Amurica; and tho misguided Iudiuus
who sent a communication to the
Growers' association of Yuklina, to the
effect that they would charijo $2 per
box, have been probably ullbided on
opportunity to regret their little scheme
to exploit the Industrial class from
which they might reasonably expect
to draw ituuual wago-mouoy for many
years to come. It would not be struuge
were the bop acreage of tho Northwest
Increased fifty per cent another seasou,
and thut the acreage of Yakima county
would be doubled; and thut, as years
pass, it will bo quo. of tbo most
extonslvo hop districts on earth.
Thero will be u revival of burl
ness and enterprise aud the unem
ployed will be occupied In other ave
mica of Industry, When these condi
tions prevail tho people of Yuklnm will
liavo no reason to regret thut they have
paved the way fur an annual return of
ninny pickers who ure now at work in
tho district, but who under present clr
cumstnuces could be easily replaced. A
Urge, hut often requisite proportion of
plotters are not solely actuated in going
to the hop fields by tho money that
may bo made. Matiy tollers In the
cities who csunot atlord to pay the ex
peuaea of an outing or to loo uny time
from earning bread-money, go to the
hop fields for tho purpose of making u

These l,5bo bales would consume the
full capacity of a train of 22 cars.
E. Meeker informs the Citizen that
going free local oflera for the new crop
may be quoted at 17c.,. The early sam
ples from his yards are the best he has
drawn for ten years. He Bays that
present conditions for quality are most
generally excellent, but that some few
exceptionally small bops are going oft
black. The bulk of the hops, however,
will compare favorably with the pro
duce of any year during the existence
of the district. He thinks the state
will but fall slightly below 50,000 and
that Oregon will produce fully 25,000
bales. Two carloads were shlp'ped to
London from the old Meeker ranch at
the White River bridge, Tuesday. In
this yard.375 pickers are at work and
260 pickers are busy at the lower farm.
Among the earlles received by the
Meekers are ten bales of the Johns crop
and a portion of the Van Harris crop
raised at Alderton. He says that tbe
latest advices from his agent in Eng
land, say that tbe English crop is now
e'timated at 10,000 bales short of last
year's crop and that conditions are
-lightly improving in Germany. Tbe
growers of Washington have generally
secured their picking money on quite
easy terms, though a few wero forced

maintains that the short pole and

lien and Kittens.
It may interest your readers who
euro about this sort of subject to
hear of tho singular incident at our
farm two years ago of a hen taking
chargo of threo kittens. Tho moth
er cat must havo taken them herself
an hour or two after their birth and
placed thorn under tho hon, which
had mado a nest for horsolf two or
thrpo yards off undor tho maugor in
a cowshed. I buw tho cat and her
progeny lying on tho straw directly
after thoir birth and noticed Uio hen
on hor nest. Returning' nn hour or
two later, tho cowman Bhowed me
tho kittens under tho hen, wonder
ing how thoy had got there, as no
body olso had beeu in tho Blind, and
ho had not touched them.
Till the kittens grow too big, tho
hon novor left thorn. Tho cat used
to go away foraging and como down
every now and thou, throw herself
down alongsido tho JUeu and ntirso
hor young ones, sometimes lying
with hor head under and her paws
almost round tho hen's neck. As tho
kittons got older it was droll to sco
thoir foster mother following thorn
irtiout and trying to covor thorn with
hor wings. For somo 6ix weeks it
was quite tho sight of tho neighbor

The testimony of the witnesses who
baye appeared before Mr. Wilson's com
mittee Is practically unanimous to the
effect that a reduction of the taritl
would necessarily be followed by a re
ductlon of wages.

there was that much difference in your
Lincoln' Opinion of Cowardice.
While Lincoln was fearless in his
own nature he had tho keenest for
bearance for tho timidity of others.
He would never consent to shoot a
soldier for cowardice. He called them
"No ono need ever expect me to
sanction tho 6hooting of a man for
running away in a battle," he said to
me once. "I won't do it. A man
can't help being a coward any more
than he could help a humpback, if he
were born with one." Then, turning
to me again, he said, "Voorhees,
were you ever scared?"
I confessed that I had some little
experience that way.
"So havo L" said Lincoln, laughing,
"and I just know what it means.
And in any contest or controversy
which arises between the head and
the heels I never knew the heels to
get anything but the best of it. No,
sir; they needn't send any leg cases
to mo at all. I'll never order a man
shot for any such offense."
Once when I was up to the White
House to see him about something
he turned to me with a pathetic look
of anxious pain and said: "Voorhees,
doesn't it seem strange that-I should
be here I, a man who couldn't cut a
chicken's head offt with blood run
ning all around me?" Senator Voor
