he made several changes in it , and
among them was the addition of the

in If53 to the late Daniel Lothrop.

T last the cry has been raised in this coun
try , "Back to the farm/ ' The cities are
over-crowded. Employment is dHiicult to
obtain. Wages are insufficient to secure the
necessaries of life. The prices of all food
stuffs are high. These conditions must be
remedied , and , as the demand for indus

A year or so ago when London was disturbed by bread
riots , there are e among that city's poor a man who
thought he could solve the problem. In a small way he
began to lead London's poor into the country , establish
them on small truck patches , teach them how to raise
vegetables and fruit , and his experiment to-day has
proven so great a success that London's poor are crowd
ing to the country. The experiment has attracted at
tention in this country and now philanthropists of New
York , Boston , Chicago and other great cities are ma
turing plans to send their poor into the country , place
them on land , give them a start in farming , and thus
citizens. The movement

be the most humanitarian of a generation , because it re
lieves actual suffering , both physical and mental , such
as most of us know very little about. England is small ;
tills country is large. If the experiment should prove
successful in England , it certainly ought to here.
In raising the cry "Hack to the farm' ' there is no dis
position on the part of anyone to croud the poor out of
our large cities. The sole idea is to do good In a much
more effective way than the methods that have boon in
vogue. Practical charity is what is intended , and , if
assistance is received in the same spirit as it is offered ,
there ought to be , before many years , a measurable re

THE CHUKCHES AlvD SOCIAL REFORM.
IGNS of the times are growing more and
more apparent in the work of churches. In
stead of devoting themselves to man's eter
nal welfare asused to be the- case , they are
growing more and more comerned with this
life on earth. Once priests and ministers
talked exclusively of heaven and hell. Now
they discuss the manner in which men should live in
this world , not so much with reference to a future ex
istence as to justice and happino.-s here.
One Chicago Baptist clergyman , occupying the pulpit
of one of the largest and most influential churches in
the city , has gone so far in this direction as to convert
himself into a social reformer. witliout consideration of
religion as it was once known.
Churches , he says , are usually afraid to denounce in
justice , because they are supported by men in positions

"To illustrate : I was junior officer

those days we had target practice once

munition every three mouths , and

"One day we went out for the quar

went at if. The targets we used in
those days were three planks fastened
in a triangle , a spar stepped in tlio
center to hold the canvas which formed
the target proper.
"Now the gun captain of the forward
pivot rifle was an excellent marksman ,
and on his first trial he sent a shell

It is good to see the churches now finding an outlet
from the place of indifference in which they are grad
ually being left by the masses of the people and plunging
into questions that deeply interest every thinking man.
The religion of the future will , of course , concern itself
with man's destiny hereafter , but it will have much
more to say than the religion of the past about man's
state on earth.
If religious feeling can once be enlisted in the cause
of social reform , it will give a tremendous impetus to
the progress of civilization. Chicago Journal.
T is not often that Americans consider the
other side of the immigration question ; yet
the governments of the countries from
which the people come here are troubled
over emigration almost as much as immi

For number of from one-half to

ters of a million Italians have been leaving home to go
to South America or to the United States. Agricultural
laborers have become so scarce in many provinces that
it is almost impossible to till the land. Italiaa writers
on the subject call attention to the fact that only the
very young and the old in those districts remain , the
best young blood having gone abroad in search of for
tune. When these young men return they are too often
broken in health from having submitted to hardship and
privation to save money to spend at home.
Complaint of the depopulation of agricultural districts
comes from Spain also , although Spanish emigration is
small as compared with that from Italy. Germany is
not pleased with the departure of hundreds of thousands
of able-bodied young men who are needed at home , not
only to serve in the army , but to assist in the industrial
development of . . fatherland and its dependencies. The
decrease in poulation of Ireland is regarded as a striking
commentary upon the resuU of British rule in the island.
Thorp are in the United States to-day more native-born
Irishmen and children of Irishmen than in all Ireland.
Japan has lately co-operated with the United States
in an effort to prevent Japanese laLoivrs from coming
to America. The Japanese government gladly did this
because it prefers that the people not content at home
should ire to Kore.i or some other dependency of the em
pire rather than cross the ocean to a country where they
can do nothing to increase the prosperity of their own
land. Even Russia is striving to induce tjie discontented

Extraordinary among fish freaks is
a lot of l.5:5 : albino brown trout now at
the aquarium , says the New York Sun.
These queer little fishes wore hatched
out in the aquarium's hatchery in
February. Originally there uero l.jO
of them , of which fifteen died in the
first two months. In the last four
months only two have been lost , one
of these by jumping out of the lank

success that has thus far attended the
rearing of the fishes hatched from
them mu < = t be attributed to the facili

fords for looking after both eggs and
fishes ; for here Avith comparatively
small lots of eggs , It is possible to
give them almost individual care and
to insure that all the little fishes shall
be properly fed.
Another extraordinary thing about
these little albino brown trout Is their
number as compared with the total
number of the hatch of eggs from
which they were hatched. Albino fish
es arc not very common among such
varieties as brook trout and lake trout
and among brown trout they are very
rare , but these l.'O albino brown trout
were batched out of a lot of 5,000
eggs ; a very remarkable proportion of
The little albinos arc here to be seen
all in one tank , while near them is an
other tank of brown trout of their
natural color hatched from the same
lot of eggs. Seen thus the little albinos
bines with their almost colorless bodies
ies but with dark fcet eyes become' all
the more striking.
Tbe albinos are now growing faster
than their liltle brown brothers , but
what will happen to them later nobody
can tell , for albino fishes are not so
long-lived as fishes of their natur.il
color ; they are more dolirati' and as a
rule they die young. If an aibino trout
should survive after six months and
should grow to maturity it could not
be expected to live more than half the
life of a fish of natural color.
The aquarium has now four albino
lake trout surviving out of a lot of
eleven albinos of this species received
a year ago from the State fish hate-fi
ery at Saranac Lake. The largest of
these four albino lake trout , which
are now between 0 ami1 years old , i
is now about ten inches in length.

GERMAN BALLOON WINS.
Foiumeru Co\ei-i JOO Miles to

Germany won the second interna

Tbe race is pronounced by experts to
be the most remarkable in the history
of aeronautics. All racing records were
broken , both for length of Hight and for
the time spent in the air. Ihe world's
nou-coinpetitive endurance record was
also shattered , although tlie world's
non-competitive record for distance still
stands by a big margin.
The German balloon I'omniern landed
at Ashury Park , N. J. The balloon had
covered 1)00 miles in an air line from
St. Louis in forty-two hours , an average -
ago of nearly twenty-one and one-half
miles an hour. This established a rec
ord for the rate , the winning balloon in
last year's initial race staiting from
Paris covering an air line distance of
only 402 miles. Mr. Erbslooh and his
aid. Prof. Clayton , thus carry off the
international aeronautic cup and a cash
prize of 2r , 00. The result or the con
test was determined by the number of
< jir miles covered in the flights. The
French balloon L'Isle de France made
a remarkably game fight for premier
honors and came down in New Jersey ,
but a few miles from the rojumejrn. The i
Pommern made an extraordinary flight.
When it came down it was in excellent
condition and could have added several
more hundred miles to its taily had the
open ocean not boon ahead.
The reports show that an extremely
wide area of country was covered by
the balloons , the points at which the
nine contestants landed being separated
by Icmg distances. Besides the two bal
loons which came to earth in Now Jer
sey , two more descended in Virginia ,
while two others landed in Maryland.
One of the contestants descended in
Ohio , another in Delaware , while Major
U. B. Horsey reached the earth in On
tario. Major llersey used the United
States , the same balloon in which he
won the race with Lieut. Lahin last f
year. lie was eighth.
The victory of the German balloon
means that Hie race next year will be
held under the auspices of the German
Aero Club. The international cup , which
is the gift of James Gordon Bennett ,
must be won three times by the same
club to be held permanently.
