The report Kay that compared with the

with railroads of any Ktate in the Union,

while it furnishes great advantages, has
its corresponding drawbacks. Tho multi

where tho volume of business is sufficient
to yield remunerative revenues to com

Barry, outliains; the aim and purpose of
the sew organization which he proposes
to form aad which U to be known a tha
"Brotherhood of United Labor." Tha
organization, it is stated, will be establish!
on a decentralized basis. It will leare to
trade or central branches complete juris
diction and control over their own affairs.
If disputes or controversies arise between
members and their employers they will be
settled by those most conversant with tha
trouble, and not by those who know noth
ing about the cause of the complaint.
The order will maintain friendly rela
tions with all legitimate organizations of
( labor. "lb will," says the addrs, draw
the line rioter on scabs and senilism. It
j will urge the study of co-operation and
the means of bringing it into practice, and
will insist upon member civiuc fair
manufacturers preference when purchas
ing necessaries of life. It will pursues
progressive educational iolicy to bring
into practice and have enacted into prac
tical law its platform or principles."
The cardinal principle of the brother
hood will be land, currency and transpor
tation reform: First, the right of man to
tho use of the earth; second, the taking
from usurers and shy locks the right to con-
' trol our currency: third, the Governmental
ownership of !b8 means of tranM'Ort.ngl
J persons, freight and intelligence, and the
taking of those engines of human happi
neis out of the hands of stock gamblers
and speculators and opsrate them
for the beiieiit of the producer and con
sumer. While seeking a settlement of
those questions tho order will lalor for
ameliorative terms, such as the reduction
of the hours of labor to eight hours pr
day, the prohibition of child labor, aboli
tion of convict labir, utiolition of the con
tract system on National, Ktut and muni
cipal works, prohibition of foreign labor
under con ti act, purification of politics

The principles of business that

A clerk very soon reaches' the plaoa
where ho has been told all that is act
ually necessary that he should be told
about the details of Die business; ho
fall into the ruts of the houc. under
stands the run of trade, the variations
in people and prices, iind how to gel in
and send out goods to the best advant
age. But all these details, while they
are necessary to be learned, only fit tha
young" man for that particular place,
and if he is ambitious he is always
looking to something- better. Others
have been teaching hira; it is neceary
that he should now teach himself.
A clerk who remains in one position
all his life ad vert imjs himself lacking
in one of two things ability or ambi
tion. There undoubtedly are instances
tvhere a clerk is kept o constantly and
continually employed at one task that
he has no opportunity to learn any
thing- but his present work, but such
instances are very rare. As a general
rule, everv clerk has some time at his
disposal, either at intervals during the
day or in the evening. These are
hours that he can not afford to throw i
away. Not that it follows that he must
deprive himself of every pleasure, or
must desert every form of entertain
ment. All work and no play makes
Jack a dull boy, and dullness does not

It was his duty to copy the letters in
the copying press, and ho read and re

He was so ready and willing- to do

under twenty; and when "Historia de

under 8.000. It is marvelous "while
nearly all the charters, prior to the

MIGRATION OF BIRDS.
A MoTrnirnt Heart Witli Many I'rriU ami
Birds often lose their way; a con
trary wind or a spell of dark, cloudy
weather appears to disorganize their
movements, and. like mariners without
a com puss, they are at a loss which di
rection to take. Many wonderful
scenes are witnessed alt ho light-house)
on some part of the Itritish coasts dur
ing the season of migration. Some
times when the moon is suddenly hid
den by a bank of clouds tho lanterns of
the light-houses are tho point to which
the stream of migrant hasten, and
where in a confused fluttering throng
they beat against the glass like moths
round a candle and Uy to and fro, utter
ly bewildered and completely lost.
They seem to have no idea of their
true course, ami fly ninile-lv about, I
many killing themselves gaina tho
glass, others falling into the water be
low. The light-men are alert on tlieso j
occasions, and capture numbers of
the poor lost travelers with hand nets.
Many of tho birds are too tired
or too dazed to move and allow them
selves to bo taken by tho hand as they
sit on the balcony. Let the reader
represent to himself a lighthouse on
one of these migration nights. Tho
tide of migration is at its height. Tho
night is dark and the lanterns aro tho
central point of attraction for tha
countless hosts of birds that were
crossing the sea when the sky became
overcast. Birds of many different
species are flying together or are at
tracted from all points of the compass
by the brilliant light- Ducks and
geese are traveling with gold-cresta
and swallows. Starlings and finches
are flying side by side with gulls and
waders. Warblers and herons scatter
scientific classification to tho winds,
and fraternize with swans and goat
suckers and larks. Falcons and owls
appear to lose all propensity for prey
ing on their helpless, fellow-voyagers,
and fly harmlessly to and fro among
their companions in. misfortune. As
soon as the weather clears, and tho
moon shines forth once more, the birds
appear to get on their right track
again, and the feathered hosts are gono
as suddenly a they came. These mi
gratory movements lend bird life its
greatest charm in autumn. Good
The Bismarck of To-day.
The Bismarck now before me was
very different from the Bismarck I
used to see in Berlin six or seven years
ago. before Dr. Schweninger took hira
in hand. The Bismarck of to-day is
thin and bony, and the Doctor has, it
is well-known, disencumbered him of
his unhealthy fat merely by prevent
in him drinking with his meals. Ho
is looking remarkably well: his gait is
swift and automatic: but denotes real
rigor; his complexion is clear and al
most pink, no doubt the result of the
health-laden breezes from the German
ocean and the Baltic I remark also
that the features aro softened down;
you scan them in vain to discover that
harshness, not to say ferocity, which
are so apparent in his photographs. It
may, however be due to the fact of his
being in civilian garb. His soft felt

When calves are given a grain ra
tion during tho fall they will eat less
coarse and bulky food. Sheaf oats, cut
up, will bo found well adapted for
them, as they will eat the chaff and
straw with the grain, and all will be
I raised and rematicated. which will
promote digestion. A little -helled
corn may Ik added with advantage,
aud if a handful of linseed -oil meal be
given daily it will serve to prevent
constipation, and promote thrift. A

DISEASES OF POULTRY.
I'rttrnt Tlielr Ajipraranrr l.y Taking; (ifxtil
farv of Vwiir fowls.
Poultry as well as other stock are
mon; or less subject to disease, and ns
diseae with stock of any kind is diffi
cult to cure notwithstanding the large
number of infallible receipts warranted
as a specific for the different disease.,
every poultryman who has had any ex-
j perteaco unuerinnus inai h uine
gets once started among hi poultry it
is in a majority of cass very diflicult
to -tamp out or cure. So far as possi
ble the best method of management !
to take all reasonable precaution to
keep in good health. This will be found
to be the ca-e during the winter a well
ns during the summer. And it i a
i mistake to suppose that simply b-'cau-o
I cool weather has set in the riks of
disease are about over until -pring. A
damp floor, expo-ure. wnnt of food or
water, or failure to provide a good uj
ply of water regularly so that when it
is supplied they drink too much, cracks
in the side- of the house allowing tho
wind to blow directly upon the fowl,
and an excess of one kind of food, are
only a few causes of disease among the
poultry during the winter. Lice do
not usually thrive as well, yet iwre or
le of them will be found and will need
If they can be watched sufficiently
so that the first apjearancc of diae
will be noticed and taken in hand at
the start, such remedies may be ap
plied as will cure the sick fowls aad
stamp out the disease before it necures
too strong a foothold. When the fowls
stand around and do not seem to care
whether they eat or not it is almost a
sure indication that disease of some
kind is making a start. While they
will eat or drink, even if it be only a
little, a much better opportunity i af
forded for giving them medicine. A!ter
they have got to the stage thai thy
will refuse to eat. the only chance to
give them medicine is by force, so that
it is a decided advantage to commence
as soon as possible when disease makes
its appearance. In order to leea the
risks the better plan is to separate the
sick fowls and put them in a dry. warm
place by themselves, and loe no time
in commencing to giTe them medicine.
A day or two will make a considerable
difference in effecting a cure; it is im
portant not to delay commencing to
give medicine or they ssay be beyond a
remedy. It is quite aa item too, ia
giving thea avediciae to hare tbesa
it ia their food aad drink rather
to force it dowa them. Prevent
if possible; bat if it makes its
