LOCAL TRADE CLUBS.

A well conducted business men’s asso
ciation. board of trade, improvement
club, or an organization under any other
name, having for its object the forward
ing of the interests of the place in which
it is located, is a great factor in pushing
the claims of the town to the front and
making it boom. Every town has a large
amount of latent enterprise lying dor
mant, awaiting the opportunity for exer
cise. There are also many desirable
business and manufacturing enterprises
seeking locations which would be warm
ly welcomed and substantially encour
aged if some medium were provided
through which the citizens and those
seeking investment conld confer and
negotiate. The phenomenal progress of
all the “magic cities” of the sonth and
west is mainly dne to the efforts of these

men’s association, composed of wide
awake, go ahead, progressive citizens,
who will make known to the world the
inducements our town offers for the loca
tion of manufacturing industries and
other enterprises which will employ la
bor, make business for our merchants
and furnish a home market for the prod
uce of our farms. The time is now ripe
for this movement. A great change is
being wrought in manufacturing circles.
The exigencies of competition and' the
conflicts with th question of transpor
tation and other economic questions
have convinced owners of manufactur
ing plants that it will be good business
policy to establish themselves in com
munities convenient to the raw mate
rials in the smaller cities and towns,
where real estate is cheap and expenses
Experience shows that in indnstries
situated remote from the congested pop
ulation of large cities strikes, lockouts
and other labor troubles are infrequent,
and that the relations of employer and
employee are much more pleasant. Un
der our interstate commerce laws the
advantages that great railroad centers
once had over less favored localities have
been overcome, and this inducement will
no longer draw manufactories to those
places, and the locality where the raw
material can be procured cheaply and
quickly will be the ideal location for the
These industries will in the coming
years he located somewhere. Shall we
have our share of them? It remains with
our readers to decide.
Building and Loan Associations.
Building and loan associations have
become very popular in late years and
have been ,the means of teaching people
of moderate means lessons in economy
and enabling them to become owners of
their homes instead of paying rent. Di
rected and managed with business pru
dence, they are great factors in promot
ing the growth and adding to the wealth
of a town or city. No sooner were their
usefulness and popularity demonstrated
than their idea was seized upon by spec
ulators throughout the country, and so
called “national” associations sprang np
thicker than mushrooms after an autumn
The conservative and safe methods of
the local associations were improved
upon to such an extent that, according
to prospectuses of the “nationals,” the
money of the investor would double and
treble itself in an incredibly short time,
while the borrower could procure loans
at rates that were much more liberal
and the payments a great deal easier to
meet than those of his home organiza
tion. And they produced figures to prove
it too. But practical experience has
proved to the investor that figures will
ue on some occasions. 0
These national concerns are managed
by high salaried officers who are housed
in elegant quarters. They advertise in
costly periodicals and deluge the country
with circulars and pamphlets printed in
the most expensive manner. A local
agent in almost every town receives a
liberal compensation for soliciting mem
bership, and yet many unthinking peo
ple allow themselves to be convinced
that they are able to profitably make
larger returns for their investment than
the home association, the entire expense
of which is less per annum than the sal
ary of the janitor who cares for the of
fices of the national concern.
Hundreds of these corporations have
gone to the wall in the past few years,
entailing the loss of thousands of dollars
to those who could ill afford to stand it.
Yet there are still many more in exist
ence, some of them financially sound, it
is true, which are annually taking thou
sands of dollars out of the community
where it belongs and wasting it else
where. These companies have been well
named “rich men’s companies.” They
are promoted and fostered by capitalists,
who use the monthly stipend of the work
ingman and man of moderate means to
augment their own bank account.
Saying nothing of local pride and 'the
advantage to be gained by keeping one’s
savings in his own community, business
sense should teach any one that these ex
pensively conducted companies, with
their costly payroll, cannot honestly of
fer the inducements for a safe investment
that the local association, with its eco
nomical methods of management, can.
Tit For Tat.
The parson was complimenting the
tailor on some mending which he had
done for him. In the course of the con
versation he, however, incautiously ob
served: “When I want a good coat, I go
to London. They make them there.”
Before leaving the shop he inquired, “By
the wuy, do you attend my church?’
“No,” replied the tailor. “When I
want to hear a good sermon, I go up to
London. They preach them there."
ROGUISH LITTLE MINCH.
The Trillk by Which the Famooi Race
Hone Got His Name.
Many stories are toldof Little Minch,
the race horse, which indicate that he
is a remarkably sagacious animal. Some
would assert that be is capable of rea
soning, but horse fanciers are liable to
distort instinct and pure roguishness
into reason and sagacity. It is said that
while this son of Glenelg was being
transported east after bis sale as a year
ling be was given a nickname by a rail
road engineer that was subsequently ap
plied to the horse, and under it he won
his laurels. Little Minch's car was at
tached to the front end of a passenger
train, and the bellrope passed through
it, the same as it would through a pas
senger cat. The horse was playful, and
after several unsuccessful attempts to
seize the rope in his teeth the spiteful
little youngster finally got the cord and
gave it a lusty jerk. The bell in the en
gine cab sounded, and the engineer, fear
ing something was wrong back in tbo
train, made haste to shat off steam and
apply his airbrake. After coming to a
stop he waited for the astonished train
men to come up to his cab. They de
nied that any one had pulled the cord,
and the engineer passed the occurrence
with the remark, “Maybe the rope
caught and tightened while wo were
going around a curve.”
But the mischief loving Little Minch
was having a lot of fnn in the car. No
sooner had the train got under headway
again than he again seized the bellcord
and gave it another jerk. Once more
the engineer came to a stop, declaring
that the bell ringing was the work of
tramps, but a search for the ride steal
ers failed to reveal any, and the train
proceeded. With almost human rogu
ery Little Minch again seized tbe
rope, but be was not content with one
jerk, and the way he pulled that rope
was a caution. The enraged engineer
slipped hack in time to see tbe horse
tagging at the rope, which be had bit
ten in two by his efforts, as if his life
depended upon his ability to tear it out
of the train. “Oh, you little minch! So
it was you, was it?” cried tbe engineer.
And the horse stopped and bung his
bead much as a gnilty boy would have
done. The story was retold many times,
and the animal was named Little
A Woodcbopper’s Vision.
A chopper in the Kilkenny woods re
lates a story that he implicitly believes.
This is his narrative: “I was at work
for Van Dyke, at Connecticut Lake.
The night was dark and rainy, and the
wind howled and moaned in the tre"
tops. I went to bed, as the whole camp
does, at 9 o’clock —that is, the lights
are blown out at that hour, as id the
rule in camp. Directly opposite my
bank was a small window that one
could see ont. I could not sleep and
kept rolling and tnmhling.
“I think I must have got into a sleep,
for I was awakened by a light shining
into the window, and a woman’s face
appeared as if looking in. I am sure
it was the countenance of my sister, who
died in Quebec two years ago. Strange
to say, 1 was not scared. The light dis
appeared, and then again it shone in.
This time the woman’s hand appeared
at the window, beckoning me to come.
I got up and polled on my trousers and
went to the door. By this time the wind
had stopped blowing, the rain had ceas
ed, and the moon shone through the
clouds at times.
“Standing near the woodpile was my
sister. I recognized her now. I stepped
toward her, but she motioned me back,
saying, “Joe, don’t work tomorrow, ’ and
vanished. 1 saw no more of her that
night. The next day I staid in camp,
and before noon Bill was bronght in
dead. A limb had fallen and broken his
skull. He and I worked together. My
sister has come to save life once since.

A Gallant Rescue.
Here is a very charming cat and dog
story for the trnth and accuracy of
which the proud inhabitants of the
Swiss Tillage where it occurred quite
recently are, one and all, ready to vouch.
A troublesome cat in the village had
been doomed to a watery death, and the
children of the owner had been told off
to take it in a sack to the river Aar and
there to drown it. The bouse dog ac
companied the party to the execution,
which was carried out according to
parental instructions. But, much to the
surprise of the inmates, a short time
after tbe cat and dog, both soaking wet,
reappeared together at their owner’s
This is what had happened: The dog,
on seeing that the sack containing the
cat was thrown into the river, jumped
after it, seized it with his teeth, dragged
it to the bank, tore it open and restored
his friend the cat to life and liberty. It
goeB without saying that the death war
rant of the cat was destroyed after this
marvelous escapade.—London Million.

READS TO WORKMEN.
THE NOVEL OCCUPATION FOLLOWED
BY A NEW YORK MAN.
Caban Cigar Makers Pay Him Well For
Translating: and Beading: Aloud Newspa
pers and Books While They Work—His
Audience Sometimes Critical.
The Spanish speaking cigar makers in
this town employ a man to read to them
while they are at work. In no other in
dustry is this thing done, though it
would seem that other workers “by the
piece” could imitate the Cubans to ad
vantage. Not only do they keep in touch
with all the news, but it keeps them
from talking, and there isn’t a minute
of their time wasted.
The Cubans are great talkers, and
this is what probably started the cus
tom in the cigar factories of Havana.
When the men were brought to this
country to make their cigars in Key
West and the lower part of New York
city, they wanted a reader more than
ever. They are very bright, intelligent
fellows, these Cubans, and they take a
deep interest in the news of the world
as well as the latest intelligence from
their own little island. They all sub
scribe to a fund to pay their reader, and
they work all the harder for keeping
their mouths closed and their minds
employed as they roll the tobacco.
Julian Barreda is probably the most
popular of the young men who earn a
good living by amusing and instructing
the cigar makers. Ho is a native of
Porto Rico, where he learned the Eng
lish language as well as a great many
other things. He has had a college ed
ucation and can translate the English
and American newspapers into Latiu
and Greek as easily as in Spanish.
He is employed just now in two fac
tories, that of Lozano, Pendas & Co.:
at 209 Pearl street, and another one
at William and Platt streets. When
Barreda first came to this country,
he could not speak the language very
well, though he knew it theoretically
and could read and write it. He is a
skilled electrician, but could get noth
ing to do in his line and so went to ad
dressing envelopes at $3.50 a week.
There was a vacancy in one of the Cu
ban cigar factories after awhile, and by
that time Barreda had mastered the
speech of this country.
He walked into the factory one day,
and mounting the table which served as
a rostrum for the reader he made a lit
tle speech to the men, the purport of
which was that he thought he would
make a good reader for them.
They told him to go ahead and show
what he could do. Ho palled a paper
out of his pocket and began reading a
tariff editorial to them. They demand
ed more when he had finished the edi
torial, and he read to them for an hour
translating the cable news, the sensa
tions of the day and the Washington
dispatches into their native Spanish.
The trial was satisfactory, and he was
engaged at once for four hours a day.
There were 80 Cubans in the factory at
that time, and each agreed to give him
25 cents a week. Then Barreda made
an arrangement on the same terms with
another factory, which employed 40
men. and he was in receipt of a good in
come at once.
He reads for 1 % hoars at each factory
in the morning and for 2 y2 hours in the
afternoon. He has his evenings to him
self, but he occupies a couple of hours
then in reading the afternoon papers t >
familiarize himself with the late news,
and so his day is a busy one.
"It is not so easy a task as one might
suppose,” said Barreda to a reporter.
“The men are very critical, and if the
matter is dull or uninteresting they do
not hesitate to shout out and demand a
change. They are especially interested
in the foreign news. Then they want
the general news and anything sensa
tional in the city news. They like scan
dal. A divorce case or anything on that
order just suits them. As fast as the
Cuban papers arrive by mail I get them
and read them, and the Spanish papers
published in the city contain a great
deal that the men want to hear.
"In the afternoon I read to them out
of some book. Just now I am reading
‘Gil Bias’ in one shop and a Spanish
novel called ‘The Two Sisters’ in the
other. When I have finished a novel, 1
select half a dozen others that I think
will snit them and read them a list of
titles. Then they vote on which one I
“Are they good listeners?’
“The best in the world. They are
working all ’he time, and they are anx
ious not to miss a word. They work
faster when some one is reading, and
they realize that if they ever get to talk
ing together their bill at the end of the
week will be just so much less. They
are nearly all revolutionists, you know,
and there is great chance for argument
among them, because they all belong to
“I have to be very careful in reading
the Cuban papers and those published
in Spanish in this city that I do hot
miss an editorial representing some par
ticular shade of opinion. No matter how
radical it is, it is sure to have some ad
herent and some sympathizer in the
Barreda has learned to be a very dis
criminating newspaper reader. He
knows when to skip the dry part of an
article, and he knows just what news
paper is the one to begin on in the morn
None of his hearers speaks English,
and their desire to know abont the
country and the city they are living in
makes the employment of the reader not
only a luxury which few workmen en
joy at their occupations, but an absolute
necessity.—New York World.

MONKEYING WITH NATURE.
Results An Liuble to lie Disastrous, Al
though Sometimes It Pays,
An agent from the city was trying to
sell the grocer a new self winding clock.
There was a small storage battery con
nected with it, and it was intended that
the battery should be kept in operation
by means of a small windmill placed
on the roof of the house. Tho agent had
about persuaded the grocer to buy,
when tho man with tho ginger bear,;,
who bad been watching the transaction
with the deep interest that comes so
natural to a man with plenty of spare
time on his bands, chipped in.
“Sometimes it pays to monkey with
nature and let her have the job of doiu
all your work while you air loatin
around the county courthouse 10 miles
away, and sometimes it don’t,’’said he.
“I knowed a feller out in Kansas ’at
had one of them windmill contraptions
that was the ruin of him.”
“There never was one of these clocks
sold in Kansas at all,” said the agent,
with some wrath.
“This here wasn’t a clock,” said tho
man with the ginger beard, “and I defy
any man in the crowd to prove I said
anything about clocks. I jist said a
windmill contraption. This here was a
pomp. Yon see, this here fellow was a
sort of market gardener, aDd as it is dry
in Kansas, as fur as the weather is con
cerned, he ’lowed to rig up a pump ar
rangement that would water his garden.
So he fixed up a wind pump, but that
wasn’t enough. Ho next went to work
and makes a kind of swivel arrange
ment that would beep the hose movin
back and forth and op and around till
the whole patch was sprinkled. Did
all the work itself, you see. That left
him free to. go down to the grocery and
talk all he wanted to—or all he dast to
at least. Well, he goes away one morn
in happy as a clam and comes back at
night to find his garden all ruin. Now,
what d’yon suppose had did it?”
“Hogs got in?” ventured the clock
“Hawgs? You make me sick! Hawgs
nothin ! One of them playful breezes
that Kansas sometimes gits op had
come along and had worked that there
windmill pump so dern fast that the
water was made bilin hot by the fric
tion, and his whole patch of truck had
been scalded to death. ”
“That was pretty tough,” said the
“Oh, I don’t know,” answered the
man with the ginger beard. “As soon
as he got broke he went into politics, and
now he is gett’n a good livin at tho ex
pense of the state. Ef it hadn’t ’a’ been
for that accident ho might be still bav
in to work fora livin.”—Indianapolis
My advice to those who contemplate,
having a plaster cast taken of their
heads and faces is don’t. Two friends
of mine, amatenr sculptors, persuaded
me to let them take a cast of my face,
so as to reproduce and immortalize my
features. I bad no idea what the proc
ess was, and though I objected to it on
general grounds did not imagine that
any torture was connected with it.
Judge of iny horror, then, when i
found that my nostrils had to be staffed
with cotton wool and that a nasty, sticky
substance was pressed tightly all over
my face 60 as to secure an impression
of my features. Nothing so utterly un
comfortable conld be imagined, and the
desire to scratch portions of the face
specially irritating was almost irresist
ible. But the greatest agony was tc
come. The young men had forgotten
in their hurry some precautions which
it is usual to take in order to make it
easy to break the cast in the center and
take it off in two pieces.
Hence it failed to respond to their
efforts to make it split, and 1 had to
wait until they could break it off in
sections. The beat in the interval was
oppressive in the extreme, and as they
pulled off large pieces of flesh and
enough hair to make a small wig my
sufferings can easily be imagined. If
I ever obtain fame, which I do not an
ticipate, my featnres will have to be
immortalized in some way other than
by means of a bust.”—St. Lonis Globe
The Tailor’s Friend.
A New York tailor struck up an ac
quaintance with a local politician, and
they became constant companions. The
politician may be called Jones, and his
nickname is Bad, which stands for Ben
jamin. As Bad the tailor met him, and
as Bnd he has always known him. One
evening the tailor and his friend were
in an np town cafe, chatting and drink
ing, while another man kept a sharp
eye on them. Finally the two friends
parted, and then the third man hastily
approached the tailor. “Well,” he said,
"did yon get anything out of him?”
The tailor did not see the point. “Did
you not say anything to him about mak
ing a payment?” said the other. “What
are you talking about?” answered the
tailor. “That's my friend. Bud Jones.”
“That may be, but he’s Benjamin Jones,
who owes you §240. I've been trying to
find him for three weeks to collect it.”
“The dickens!” said the tailor, "1
didn’t know that. Guess you’d better
not try to collect that hill just yet. ”—

Malice and Superstition.
In the middle ages malice and super
stition found expression in the forma
tion of was images of hated person:
into the bodies of which long pins were
stuck. It was confidently believed that
in that way deadly injury would be
done to the person represented. This
belief and practice continued down to
the seventeenth century. The super
stition indeed still holds its place iD
the highlands of Scotland, “where.”
says a well informed writer, “within
the last tew years a clay model of an
enemy was found in a stream, having
been placed there in the belief that as
the clay washed away so would tb
health of the hated one decline. ”—I\V
