Rudely carved on one of the support
ing pillars of an old-fashloucd wooden
arch over tho entrance to No. 1722
Lombard street are two simplo geomet
rical characters, a circle anrt a cross, the
latter being -within the former, which
in the homely but expressive sign-lan-
Suagc of professional tramp? indicate
jatjtis a place the lazy members of
this nomadic fraternity hhould fear as
much as the' do cleanliness ami honest
employment. Just below the cross and
ring signs is a lop-sided diamond encir
cling a very crooked arrow, which to
tho initiated prosetytes of this royal
order of unwashed humanity means that
somo kind member of the guild has in
vestigated the place and, not being
pleased with his reception, carved the
hieroglyphics described, and by them
his fellows are advised to " move on."
The wood-yard is one of the best and
most successful of the new charitable
movements of the year in this city. The
difficulty of separating men who really
deservo help and are anxious to iind
employment from the horde of lazy
tramps -who apply fbr assistance was,
until lately, a problem the charitable
people of Philadelphia were unable to
solve. About two months ago the man
agers of the charity organizations of
the Seventh, Eighth, Ninth and Tenth
wards held a meeting ami resolved to
open a kindling wood j'ard, like those
in Boston and Providence, where men
who apply for help arc sent and given
work until they proved whether they
deserved further assistance or not.
House No. 1722 and a large 3ard in the
rear were leased, and six weeks ago the
first kindling wood was cut in the place.
The yard has been in operation six
weeks, and has proved more successful
in every way than the most sanguine of
its managers dared hope for when the
scheme was lirst broached. Not only
has the 3-ard been self-supporting from
the first week, but tho money
.borrowed to begin operations with w:is
paid back some time nro, and the man
agers are now contemplating numerous
improvements. Dr. JoH'cris, the Super
intendent, has thus far managed this
new departure in charity with great
success, and as he takes a warm interest
in work of this kind tho future of tho
"Tramps' woodyard," as people in the
neighborhood of Seventeenth and Lom
bard streets call it, is very bright. Dur
ing tho six weeks of its existence no
'less than sixty-seven men who applied
for help were sent to the yard. Of that
number twenty-two did "not put in an
appearance at the wood-pile, twenty
two .others refused to go to work after
they visited the place, and eight who
did begin work were dismissed for
drunkenness. The fact that only fifteen
out of sixty-seven applicants for cm
plo3'mcnt were willing to go to work
when it was given them convinced the
managers that the tramp element was
oven greater among tho applicants for
help than is generally supposed.
Kaeh man is allowed to saw a quarter
of a cord of wood a day, and for that
amount of work he receives fifty cents
in cash or, if the laborer wishes it, an
order for food and lodging at the indus
trial home, on Catherine itreet. but this
institution is not connected with the
wood yard in any way. Dr. Jelleris
says the managers do not intend to fur
nish steady work at the j'ard for the
men who are sent there The object is
to select the deserving from tho unde
serving cases, and allow the former to
mako enough to live until the managers
find them permanent situations. Good
situations have already been found for
five of tho fifteen men who went to
work earnestly, and efforts are now be
ing mado to place tho other ten in regu
lar positions. The wood, after being
sawed and split, is packed in boxes hold
ing a thirteenth of a cord each, and one
of theso boxes retails at thirty-three
cents. Over 2,000 of these boxes havo
been sold and 1,500 moro are ready to
supply tho demand, which is increasing
daily. Tho LafaN'ette and Colonnade
Hotels receive all "their kindling wood
from this ard, and a good trado anion"
privato families is being gradually built
up. W. H. Magilton, t'ac manager of
the yard, keeps a list of all men sent
there, together with an account of the
dato of each man's application, his trado
or business, tho length of time tho ap
plicant worked for his last emploj-er,
ins habits and whether he appeared to
deservo help or not.
These books show that "W. H. Brown
worked fourteen years for ono railroad
company, got tired, quit, idled a year;
concluding to resume work, visited tho
wood pile, when ho changed his mind
and resolved not to do anything until
ho finds a position where labor will be
light and tho remuneration handsome.
John Day worked thirty years for one
man and then a spirit of idleness came
over him and for two or three years he

two weeks in earch of a bacon rind to

Camden contractor, discovered that
stone-cutting is a poor trade. He pre

Berks County Jail, being perforated by

Correction, he went down and
had a talk with Mr. Magiiton about
the Utopian happiness a wood-sawyer
enjoys. He promised to begin work in
the 3'ard as soon as ho "got rested."

Rents in Wall Street.
Rents in Wall Street for the coming
year have doubled, and in some cases
trebled. The writer heard a conversa
tion between a broker and a German
real-estate owner on Tuesday last
which he has permission to print, with
the proviso that the names of the par
ties shall not be mado public.
"This demand is simply outrageous,"
said the broker. " Here I've been pay

Tho story is told that a young man
who desired to enter a law office, but
hesitated from a fear that the profession
was alreadj'orcr-crowded, once went to
Daniel Webster for advice on the sub
ject, and the great barrister and diplo
mat kindlj assured tho young aspirant
for legal honors, that "There is pleaiy
of room at the top of the profession"
lor an uic talent that can be brought to
the front; that while the ordina walks
of the profession were IUII3, if not over
supplied, there was a large unoccupied
field in the higher circles, which would
insure to those who had the ubility and
the genius to reach those circles, a
highly remunerative return for their
labors. No person or ordinaty intelli
gence wil fail to comprehend tho force
of this logic, nor hold a mental debate
as to its truthfulness.
This application to the legal profession
is equals applicable to most business
vocations of life, and in none of them
more so than in agricultural affairs. In
all the beaten paths of agriculture each
individual is a close imitator of nearly
ever3" other, and all together are pur
suing the business in the direct line in
which the greatest .competition exists,
and thus each is constant crowding
and jostling the other in the scramble.
Comparatively, but few farmers at
tempt am'thing outside the common
staple productions of our latitude, and
the constant endeavor is to swell these
to such proportions as to keep the gen
eral market in a constant state of siege,
allowing -tho " bulls and bears full
swing in goring, scratching and' hug
ginjr .each other, tKc farmer being the
fcgitfmate'prey of tho entire menagerie,
while appearance?. usually indicate that
the3' are simply tantalizing each other.
An occasional agriculturist, with moro
shrewdness than most of his follows,
takes in the situation, and with a clear
comprehension that this scramble to
itnmcnscby swell the cereal productions
to be thrown on the market in the raw
state, has but one tcndenc3. aud that to
keep prices whero onlv the strictest

expense, can produce them without ac

number of those thus eugaged, .steps
outside and devotes his energies to the
breeding of fine stock sheep, swine or
cattle, any or all bu3ing tho grains

of his near neighbors who persist in
following the ohl beaten paths because
the3 require the least thought, and sell
ing breeilin"' stock back to them at
double or treble the price which stock
of their own rearing will command. In
all this timo tho lands of the grain pro

Wo do not believo that anything in
the least degree sensational is contain
ed in the foregoing lines, but that, in
stead, they are facts which are amply
confirmed by ' evc-day observations.
And wo will add that, except in 3ears
of partial failure, if the farmers of the
fertile West very soon realize fully re
munerative pricc3 for tho two great
staple products of corn and oats, of
which so many million bushels aro an

Editing n Newspaper.
There is one editor who has achieved
the feat of running a newspaper to suit
ever3bod3. Occasionally, to bo sure,
he has complaints, but he never fails to
satisfy the complainers that lhe3' are in
the wrong. It wasn't always so with
him. He only adopted the system aft
er he got desperate. It was one day
after he ha'tl'reccivcil scvon complaints,
thatho tried it A man came in and
said: ' Why in tophet didn't you print
the wholu of tlfe proceedings of tho
Society for the Prevention of cruelty to
Hogs, instead of a brief abstract?" Tho
editor replied: "Oh, 3011 made a speech
that wasn't in the report, eh?" Then
he went around the counter. The dust
flew for a few moments ami then it be
came more quiet. The editor relaxed
his grip on the man's throat sufficiently
to let him speak, and he saiil that he
fjuessed the article wa3 all right, and
ic had on"3 come in to renew his sub
scription. Ho was let up, paid the
money and left, and as he went out lie
collided with a man who had an ugby
glare in his e3'es, and dancing up to the
editor, said: "What d'yo mean, sir?
I pay for a sensible newspaper and hero
I get a lot of stuff about cruelt3 to hogs.
You ought to be put in jail for printing
such rot." The editor went around the
counter again, and again the dust flew

emerged to that point at which he was
at tho worst disadvantage, than the
wasp with a quick movement thrust his

him easily and almost instantly. The
experiment was repeated on the pan

satisfied probably that he held the fort

which are published in an interesting
report In the fall of 1879 circulars
were scattered over the country, re
questing professional and amateur
astronomers to send to Washington
brief accounts of their instruments and
their observations. Replies were re
ceived from forty-one observatories, of
which'twenty-four nro 'private and tho

duclargTlhat there is a great savisg of
food iarin? the colder lKjrtion of.-the
year In keeping cattle. Miecjvand swinft
in warm onimiiigs, that the manure
thev make can be preserved and ap
plied to the ground with !e--s loss, and
in a better manner; that tho animals
gain faster, and mature in n shorter
time: that their fle.h is much betterand
that their general health nnd condition
is superior to those auimals tliat run at
large, have no protection and are
ob.igcd to search for the food the3 re
quire to eat.
The advocates of tho other s3stom
claim that animals which run at large
at all seasons of tho year become so
hanly that they do not'suffer from ex
posure during the most severe weather;
that it is cheaper to keep them warm bv
allowing them an abundance of food
than b3 erecting expensive buildings
for their accommodation; that their
llcr-h is more wholosomo; that tho ma
nure they make is deposited on the
ground where it is wanted without atn
trouble or loss: that the auimals breed
beter und continue to produce young
till a later age. and that thc3 aroalmot

pulmonary diseases which allllct toek
in Great Britain and thoso parts of this
county- whero tight barns, stables and
pens are in general use.
It is likely that there is considorab'o
truth, and, also, considerable error, in
the teachings of both of these schools
of instruction in the science aud art of
stock-raising. There is little doubt that
animals cat less food when kept during
cold weather in comfortable building.-,
nnd that thev lav on more tlcsh and fat
according to tho food they consume
when they are not obliged to travel
long distances to obtain it. That the
tlcsh of animals of all kinds is more ten
der when the3 are fattened in tolerably
close quarters is geucralby admitted. :"s
coutiuual excrcisu tends to develop the
muscles and to render thorn touh. Tho
diflcrenco between the flesh of wild and
domesticated animals is due to tho
amount of exercise taken by the former.
I hat there is such a thing as too
much protection for stock is at the
present time verv gencralby admitted.
Barns, stables and puns have been con
structed so as to admit of a verj' poor
circulation of air. In man cases ani
mals are obliged to breathe the air
that has beeu deprived of oxvgen in
their lungs, und to iuludc the vile odors
that rise from their own excrements.
In some cases barns have been con
structed so that the solid aud liquid
nmmiro accumulates on thu lower or
ground floor; above this stand tho
stock, and above them is .stored thu
fodder on which they are fed. In these
barns vile substances aro taken into
the stomachs of cattle, as well as in their

also generally admitted. Certain high
priced anima'lt havo been kept up so
closeby that the3 havo almost lost thoir
power of locomotion. Pigs mature in thu

It is not only possible but practical to
combine all the excellencies of both
methods of keeping animals without
adopting an) of tlie objectionablo feat
ures of either. Common sense declares
and common observation shows that
stock of all kinds require for their com
fort and w,ell-being some protection
during the severe weather of winter.
Unless the) havo it they fall off in con
dition, lose tlcsh and contract colds, no
matter how large the quautitv or how
excellent tho qualit) of food allowed
them. Young, naturally feeble and sick
animals require protection at other
times, especially during protracted
rains. Even sheep which aro noted for
their hardiness and their ability to
withstand exposure will suffer fewer
losses and produce more wool if fliey
aro afforded shelter during severe
The importance of air and oxcrciso
cannot be too liighby estimated. Pure
air is as essential to animal develop
ment as nutritious food and clear water.
In fact the former is apparently of
greater necessuy than the latter as an
animal will live several days without
food or drink, while it will miserably
perish in a few minute if deprived of
air which is nccossary to purify tho
blood which is in tho S3stem. " Air,
which is full of carbonic acid or hcavi'3
charged with vile odors docs not purify
the blood, but acts like a poison in thu
animal system. A certain amount of
exercise is essoutial to tho full develop
ment of every portion of the system.
The ana(oni3 of everv animal, bird, rep
tile or insect shows that it was not de
signed to remain statiomuy.
It is possible and practical to house
cattle, bheep and hogs without stifling
them. It is easy to afford them sulh
cient protection during very severo
weather without rendcruig them so ex
tremely sensitivo to cold that they re
quire to be covered with blankets when
exhibited at a fair held on sunny days
in the month of September. It is
practical to feed them well without
pampering them. Barns, stables and
pens may oe rendered warm and com
fortable without preventing all free cir
culation of air. They may be so ar
ranged ai to render tlie storage of ma
nure comparatively easy without com
pelling the animals bound to lie in it or
to inhale the odors that aro constantly
arising from it.
It is not .necessary to render swine as
fleet aj deer, or to cause beeves to move
over the ground as rapid I3 a3 raco
horses, in order to keep them in a
healthy condition. Sheep do not re
quire to travel all the time, or to per
form long journey, liko the buffaloes of
the plains, in order to be in a condition
to produce and raise young, to yield
good mutton, or to turn off large fleeces
of excellent wool. A suitable amount
bf exercise, however, is necessary for
the health and full development of all
kinds of animals. Without it the appe
tite becomes" impaired, and perfect de
velopment of the system becomes im
possible. In this, as in many other
things, the middle ground is the safest
to choose. Chicago Times.

was fastened to her horns.
