A HALT ON PICKLES.
Aostoisfc Schoolgirls to He tprld ol
Ihelr favorite I wrKtun.
Considerable interest is rin;r mani
fested in rt-jrarJ to the lum-hi-ons pro
vided at rvcctM for the Iwys nn.1 gr
in the hi'h scIkhi. At almost every
hijjh whool in the eitj- the majority
of the pupils buy thoir luncheons from
the lunch counter kept by the janitor,
bay the llo-ton Trunsoritit, ami the
food io provided consists largely of
pies an.l eake.s "liakohouso stuff." as
ome M-ople call it and pickle. The
janitor keeps that kind of food liecatise
the pupils will buy it in preference to
any more wholesome kinds, and also
Is-cuuso there Is probably more pro it
Nevertheless, the parents of th
pupils are anxious that some different
system may lie adopted in tho matter
of furni.-hinjj luncheons. They think
it hijfh time that KOinethinjj was done
about it, for in schools where therj
are no lunch counters, peddlers of
cheap candy, cocoanut cake and other
unwholesome compounds make their
appearance at recess, and are general
ly well patronized by tho hungry boys
Tho first official step toward better
ing this stato of things was taken
when an order was passed by
the school board providing that all
luncheons sold in tho public schools
should be such as are approved by the
committee on hygiene and physical
training. Moreover, tho committee
was instructed to report at the next
meeting of the board a plan for pro
viding suitable luncheons at proier
places for the high school pupils.
Just what tho committee intends to
do is hard to sav, but several persons
interested are hoping that it will be
able to make some arrangements with
the New Kngland kitchen whereby
soups, sandwiches, milk anl other
wholesome articles of food may bo
furnished directly to the pupils at
moderate prices. The kitchen has its
main station on Pleasant street, and
another station at the North Knd. It
is thought that soups might bo carried
from tho kitchen to the schools in
tanks, just as coffee is sometimes
transported, and in that way might
be served hot. Such a system of pro
viding luncheons would be more favor
able to the health of tho pupils, and
therefore more acceptable to the
parents. As for tho old system, the
janitors are not thought to merit any
blame, for they simply provided what
the pupils buy; but now that the com
mittee has taken tho matter in hand,
it is likely that most pupils will give
up the practice of making a luncheon
on an eclair, a piece of pie or a pickle.
GUARD AND CONDUCTOR.
Difference Iletweeu Kosses of Engllil.
and American Railroad Train.
The guard is found on tho station
platforms, where he looks at your
ticket, opens and closes the door of
the compartment, will try to see you
well placed according to your class,
then hops into his van and goes with
the train on your journey. Ho is by
no means tho important person that
the conductor is in the United States,
eays Colonel H. (i. Prout in Scribner's
Magazine, for ho has no opportunity
to sit with the passengers, to talk
politics, or horses, or railroads, lie
never rises to the rank of captain, as
all conductors do in our Southern
statos." Ho may become a Knight
Templar for all I know, but I never
saw him with his waistcoat ablazo
with the symbols of that order whieli
so often decorate our own conductors.
Doubtless in private life he is a man
of influence in his neighborhood, but
on duty he is a quiet servant, and his
relations with the public are purely
those of business.
He is a tidy man in blue cloth uni
form with white metal buttons, and
often wears a broad patent-leather
strap over one shoulder with white
buckle and ornaments. ' He some
times carrion a smull bag, presumably
for such papers as he needs to have,
and is provided with a green flag to
wave to the engineman as a signal to
start the train. Altogether ho is a
simple, efficient and civil official, and
just here is a striking contrast be
tween the men of tho two countries.
On tho English railroads one never
sees the conductor or ticket-seller
who scorns you if you ask a question,
and gives the minimum of information
with tho maximum of brusqueness:
and one never sjes tho usher who
stands in the gatewav and IkjIIows in
inarticulat3 pride, then turns a quid
in his cheek and sjuirts tobacco juico
into a corner.
She Did orry.
The lawyer, who had been married
for only a year, sent word to his wife
that he had been suddenly called to
Milwaukee. "I will be back to-morrow,"
ho wrote. "Don't worry. My
stenographer goes with me."
But did she , worry. When he
reached homo next evening her eyes
were red from weeping, and as soon
as she saw him she broke down again.
"Oh, how could you?" she soblxjd.
"What's tho matter?" he demanded.
"Your stenographer " she began,
and again she sobbed.
"What's the ma' tor with him?"
"Him. Was it a man?"
"Why, yes: I fired that girl a month
"Oh. dearest, I never believed it for
a moment.auy way." Chicago Record.

ORANGE PIU NCI t'LES.
On behalf of the Loyal Orange Lodge of
the United States of America, and with
view of correcting the false Impression that
enemies are endeavoring to convey to the
minds of men who are unacquainted with
Orange principles, are these few statement
The Loyal Orange Institution Is a brother
hood and sisterhood, bound by three ties
Justice, Truth and Righteousness.
It has no hidden alms
It Is Fraternal and Benevolent assisting
and protecting members while living and
their widows and orphans when they are re
moved by death.
It upholds the right of private Judgment
the untrammelled freedom of opinion; be
lieves the public schools are an essential
safeguard of the state, and should be kept
free from ecclesiastical or sectarian control
and that persons disloyal to the government
who hold a mental allegiance to the pope
of Rome should be rigorously exel uded from
It believes primary allegiance Is due to
the government which protects the lives,
liberties and properties of Its ctliiens, and
that ecclesiastical authority should a of
under any circumstances, be permitted to
meddle In the affairs of state, and that coer
cion of acltlzen In the exercise of his or her
right of franchise, under the guise of relig
ious or spiritual authority should be pun
ished as a crime against the st ate.
That It Is the duty of every citizen to de
fend the lawfully constituted authority and
Institutions of our country against corrupt
and Inimical Influences, as well as against
armed assailants, to the end that our glori
ous freedom be protected and transmitted
unimpaired to posterity.
It encourages habits of frugality and In
dustry among 1U members, and Is proud to
boast that Orangemen seldom become a
public charge or accept pauper bread.
It believes In the restriction of Immigra
tion and the extension of time for the natur
alization of citizens, and that the public
ands shall be held for actual American citi
zens who become settlers.
The Loyal Orange lustltutlon of the
United States of America has certain
requirements for membership:
That a man shall be an actual American
Citizen, having complied with the lawsof the
United States with regard to naturalization,
and without a mental reservation.
That the applicant shall be a Protestant,
and also that hlB parents and wife shall be
That he shall be thrifty and successful In
his business; honorable and truthful In his
dealings with his fellowman, and shall be
known as a law-abiding citizen.
That he will endeavor to give his children
or any children under his charge at least a
?ood common school education, being care
ul to avoid all popish doctrines, and
That he shall be In sound health at the
time of making, application.
It makes no difference where a man was
born, so long as he meets the foregoln
These are the qualifications required o
every applicant to the order, and we do not
think that anv patriotic American order can
offer a better array of urinclples and teach

DECLARATION Or PRINCIPLES.
The National Council of the Junior Order
of United American Mechanics in annual
session assembled declares:
That the constant landing upon the shores
of the hordes of Ignorant, vicious and lawless
criminals of the Old World should be viewed
with alarm by the loyal and patriotic citi
zens of this country.
We affirm a warm and hearty welcome to
all Immigrants who desire to better their
Condition and become a part and parcel of
our nationality, but we have not one square
Inch of riKim for the anarchist, the socialist
or nihilist, or for any one who is not willing to
bow allegiance to that flag which Is powerful
enough to shield and protect them as well as
us. In the exercise of all civil and religious
We affirm our devotion to the public school
system of this country. We believe in com
pulsory education, and that all teaching In
our Bchools should be In the English lan
guage, to the end that future generations
may be able to take their place In the ranks
of our country's workers, educated In the
history, the customs and manners of Ameri
cans. We guarantee to everv man the liberty of
worshiping Ood according to the dictates of
his own conscience, and would give everv as
sistance to protect all In the exercise 01 his
liberty, but we object most strenuous to
the Interference of any church, no matter
under what name it may exist, in the tem
poral affairs of this country.
We believe that the Bible should be read in
our public schools; not to teach sectarianism,
Dut to inculcate its learnings, is is tne
recognized standard of all moral and civil
law: we therefore believe, that our children
should be educated In Its teachings, but that
ne dogma or creed should be taught at the
We bel eve that patriotism ana love or
country should be Instilled Into the hearts of
children, and that, witn tne words or
"Mother," "Home" and "Heaven." our chil
dren should be taught that our flag Is the
symbol of all that makes a "home" for us.
We would place a flag upon every public
school In our land, and a Bible within, and
the object lesson therein set forth should be
a beacon light in every storm which threat
ens t engulf us.
In this noble and patriotic work we ask the
cordial and hearty co-operation of all good
Citizens. In this grand work we need the
helping hand of all organizations holding the
same views and principles. We have no time
for Jealousies and bickerings, but with a
united front we should march forward,
shoulder to shoulder, remembering that
"United we stand, divided we fall."
In the strictest sense we are a national
polltl ral organization, but we oppose with
unanimity the slightest taint of partisanlsm.
"Our country" Is our motto, and we keep
this motto steadily before us. We are cogni
zant that there are great and powerful
enemies within our midst, requiring the
strictest surveillance of all who are at heart,
word and in deed Amtricans. We, as members
of this Order, affirm our allegiance to the
objects of the Order as paramount to any
partisan affiliation, and urge upon the mem
bership harmonious, united and Intelligent
action in carrying out the principles,

Its Organization and rrinclplcH How to
Id-come a JI em iter.
We would respectfully call your attention
to the fact that there Is In this city a council
of the Order of United American Mechanics,
to which we would be happy to have you
give a moment's thought, and if favorably
Impressed, would like your name proposed
The Order of United American Mechanics
was organized In Philadelphia on the 15lb
day of July, 1K45. Its first Inception was for
the protection of Mechanics and Working
men alone, and for a number of years none
but operative mechanics and worklngmen
were admitted to Its membership; but the
great Interests of principles Involved In Its
existence, caused a departure from that
plan, and the Order has for years existed and
exists today as an order of speculative me
chanics, recognizing every one possessed of
the birth requirements, who works for a
maintenance either by hand or brain or
both as eligible to membership, and numbers
among Its members men of every profession,
and calling In life.
The objects of this order are to assist each
ether In obtalnlngemployment: toencourage
each other In business; to establish a sick
and funeral fund; to establish a fund for
the relief of widows and orphans and to aid
members; and to aid members who, through
Providence, may be Incapacitated from fol
lowing their usual vocations, In obtaining
situations suitable to their afflictions. The
membership of this order Is composed of
white male citizens born in the United
States, or under the protection of It flag.
This order has existed for nearly fifty years.
and Is at present, rapidly spreading through
out the United States. As an American born,
and having the welfare of yourself and
family ut heart, as well as that of the nation
at large, we would most heartily Invite you
to become a member of the U. A. M.. as it Is
the only Order In existence founded es
pecially to promote the lntertsU, elevate
the character and secure the happiness of
the American mechanic and business man.
It therefore appeals to the head and heart
of him who wields the pen as well as to blm
who swlng9 the scythe or wields the sledge
hammer of the mechanic. In Its councils, a
free discussion of principles relating to the
fostering and care of the Interests of Indi
vidual members Is permitted; but nothing of
apolitical or sectarian character Is ever al
lowed to be discussed. It has no affiliation
Ith such institutions as Trade9 Unions.
Knights or Labor, Sovereigns of Industry, or
the like, nnd desires not to control either
capital or labor, as It would be doing a gross
Injustice to many of Its members, who are
taken from both classes. The membership
of the Order Is scattered from Maine to Cali
fornia, and from all points cones the glorious
news that the Order Is gaining great strength
In all Jurisdictions.
An endowment branch Is also connected
with the Order, both national and state,
which insures those who seek Its benefits.
enabling them to leave a sum, which Is In all
Cases substantially and promptly paid, to
the dear ones, when death marks Its mem
bers for Its own.
It seems very strange Indeed that the
American does not feel Inclined to become
so peculiarly national in his Ideas and as
sociations as do the English, French, Ger
man, Irish, and other nationalities. Each
and all of the foregoing have their peculiar
national organizations, and take pride In
same. But the American Joins order after
order, composed of a mixture of nationali
ties, and lets his own countrymen severely
alone In the matter of secret and fraternal
We would not belittle any of the existing
secret beneficial associations. Far from It.
They are a power for good In the community.
But we do ask him who Is to the manor born
to turn his thoughts to home and native
land, so that he can join In the glad refrain
"Thou art my native land.
I own thy fostering hand;
Though far from thee I roam.
Still thou art my home."
Americans, we of this Brotherhood appeal
to you to aid us in this work we are now
Carrying on. You must either be for us or
against us. Choose quickly and let us show
to the country that we firmly believe In
American principles, American Industry,
American protection and American govern
ment. Strikes riots and boycotting are
terms too harsh to be applied to American
Mechanics. Bonded together by promptings
of patriotic affection, may this Order gro
and progress, until every man who calls
hlmseir American can stand up anu say in
sl'i sincerity. I own no man aa master of my
