What a beautiful wpectacle! The

It is difficult in tho rush of newspaper
and ministerial work to alwaju seloct

newspaper declared a gentleman in
Chicago "was shot in the tunnel." Just
what purt of his uuatomy this was is
difficult to say. A public sneaker said
that it was eo warm at Daltimoro that
tho gentlemen on tho nrocrain "snoko
in their shirt sleeves." A reporter sor
iously declared that a lady "killod a rat
with two logs," having squeezed it to
doath between her Itnaos. Our lan

and the ropublicnn convention has boon

ty In Baying that tho present county of;
tlcials ought to bo renominated for their
respective offices. Thoy have been

party owes to them a ronomination if
they desire it. J. S. Whito is a cundl
dato for ronomination for treasurer; C
13. Crone, clerk of tho district court, is u

"A groat fad waB tho contribution
of monies to societies for tho preven
tion of cruelty to animalc, etc. As
for tho tramp element, the Etonomitcs
wore a God-send to them. Tho tramps
from tho Atlantio to tho Paoiflo were
educated to depend upon Economy at
all timep.
"When I took hold I found it neces
sary to shut down on almost tho whole
business. As a result I incurred tho
ill-will of all tlo churches, hospitals,
sooiotics and individuals whom ho had
helped out of troublo or difficulties.
Jt 6eom8 there was no use trying to
get those peoplo to understand that
wo wero in difficulties ourselves, that
wo could not give bountifully to
charity and pay our dobts beside.
"I may say that wo havo oven yet
not shut down altogether. Wo give
whonevcr and whatever wo can, but
not so indiscriminately as formerly.
But I must say it has been rather
hurd to know that the churolics aud
peoplo wo havo holped havo been the
harshest t us."
"Would you havo any objection to
stating whether tho Harmony Sooiety
was oyer wealthy?" -To my mind it
is doubtful if there was a timo ia tho
whole history of tho organization
when its holdings could havo been
sola for over a million dollars more
than its indebtedness."
"How was it that a man of suoh
pure charaotor as that of Mr. Uenrici
could allow matters to get into suoh
shape and still go along as ho did?"
Becauso Mr. Henrici's business taot
and knowlcdgo wero not nearly equal
to his child-liko faith and implicit
trust in tho Lord. Many a timo when
I talked to him of tho society's affairs;
whon I questioned the advisability ot
our continuing with tho volcano be
neath us ready to burst forth at any
time, ho fouad refuge in silence, or
not knowing how to act himself would
smile pleasantly, and say: 'Never
mind, John, the Lord will fix it."
"I have firm faith in the Lord whu
rules all things, but I 'could a talo
unfold' in relation to tho experience
of nt least ono humblo instrument
which tho Lord brought into uso in
fixing' it."
What part of tho work gave you
tho most concern?"
"Unqucstiooubly our bank, Tho
Economites Savings Institution wor
ried mo morn that auvthing else. It
was thu hardest work imaginable to
keep it open day by day. Why, be
lieve mo, it wus often without more
thau $2,000 in cash on its counters
when it opened up for tho business of
tho day. To secure tho ncocBiary
funds to keep it going was the hardest
work and tho greatest worry 1 had to
contend with. For nearly three years
that bank was almost entirely out of
cash. You can imagino tba gravity
of tho situation whon I tall you that
at that very timo the institution had
no less than 3,500 to 4,000 depositors
who had over a million dollars depos
ited therein, any or all of whom
might at any moment demand their
money. It may interest you to know
that at that very timo the Stato had
$1G3,000 an deposit in tho bank. T
prevent its failuro and maintain the
good name of the socioty from blemish
was my greatest aaxioty.
"Hew did you manago to keep it or

"By idling off proporty here and
tharo as the money was needed. My
efforts in this direction woro ably
seoonded by Mr. J. Twing Brooks,
Mr. John Kcevos, our agent at Boavor

bank; Hon. Henry Hloe, of Beaver,
and Mr. James Diokson, of this oity.

"Do you not find tho duties of your
omco too numerous tor ono man to

They aro really too mueh for a
singlo individual to handle, yet it is
almost absolutely necessary for ono
to do all, in ordor to maintain oertain

"How do matters stand in tho com
munity at the present time?"
"Thoy wero novcr in bettor condi

who wero inclined to disrupt it and
cause various troubles havo been dis

quite a number remember lam judg-

ciety from mercenary motives alone.
Thoy havo been dropped."
"What is tho present financial con
dition of the community?"
It is in as good conditio! as ia
possible undor tho existing circum
stances. Of tho million and a half
of monoy owing five years ago, $1,100-
000 has been paid off, while the other
creditors aro, all amply secured by
good aafo mortgages."
"It would bo intercstiag to know,
Mr. Dubs, how yon havo managed to
pay $1,109,000 in so short timo, when
as you havo said tho holdings of tho
sooiety fivo years ago would not have
brought $175,000?"
"It has all bflcn asoompliihcd
through tho development of what woro
oousidarcd dead assets. For cxamplo
tho very day (two or threo waeks ago)
it was shown in court that the Little
Saw Mill Run Railroad, of whioh we
owned two-thirds atook, was worthless.
1 say that every day, I sold it for
$10&,000. That has been my courso
all along. I havo worked to make
those seemingly valueless belongings
bring in something to pay the debts.
I am still at work and expeot to ac
complish muoh more."
"I supposo tho results havo been
samowhat disappointing to you?"
"On the cantrary. I am well pleasod,
I novor oxpooled to accomplish as
much as I havo in tho last few years.
The possibility of paying off an in-
dobtodnoss of $1,500,000 never enter

used to parado around my store in tho

what tho morrow would bring forth,
or how I should ever bo able to meet
