Hoslon Courier : The teacher of the

paw of n cat.

"And you have seen the paw of a
dog ? "
"Woll , although the cat's paw scorns
like velvet , there is nevertheless con
cealed In it something that hurts. What
is it ? , '
"Tho dog bites , " said tlio teacher ,
"whim ho is in auger. What does tlio
cat do ? "
"Scratches , " replied the boy.
"Correct , " said the toaebor , nodding
her head approvingly , "now , what has
the cat got that the dog hasn't ? "

Zoroaster and His Teachings.
The Quiver for October : Evil , accord
ing to Zoroaster's teachings , is most
highly distasteful in the sight of the
"Most pure Ono , " and fearful retribution
is declared to await those who disobey
His commands and do evil. Thus , wo
are told how "ho who deceives tlio righte
ous will dwell for evermore in darkness. "
and in ono of tlio sacred songs it is said
of the wicked how "Ho brings a certain
ruin on a house , clan , burgh , or _ province
sure death and sure destruction. "
Instead of showing any sympathy for
those notions who consecrated to their
gods temples , altars , and statues , ho pro
claimed that the mountain tops are the
places most adapted for prayer , espec
ially as the Supreme God , "U ho fills the
vast sphere ol heaven , is the object to
Whom they are addressed. " As a speci
men of the prayers used by Zoroaster , wo
may cpiote the following , which is a good
illustration of his form of worship : "in
the name of Uod , tlio Giver and Forgiver ,
rich in love praise bo to God Who al
ways was , always is. and always will be ;
tlio Wise , the Creator , the Over-seeing
God , pure , good , and just. With all
strength bring I thank-offerings of praise
to the Lord , the Complete1 of good
works , Who made men greater than all
earthly beings , and through the gift of
speech created them to rule over the
creatures and to war against the evil
spirits. All gooil do I accept at Thy com
mand , O God , and think , 'speak , and do
it. I believe in the pure law , and by
every good work I seek forgiveness of
sins. " It may bo noted hero that , as Mr.
Davenport Adams remarks , prayer , ac
cording to this sage"is not the humbling
of the soul before its Creator , not the
aspirations of tlio spirit towards the
source of all love and mercy , not the desire -
sire of the creature to bo at peace with
God , but the renunciation of will a
noble and worthy aim in itself , but not
fulfilling the Christian idea of prayer. "
lint imperfections of this kind cause to
stand out in bolder and more striking
relief the pure and perfect teachings ol
Christ And it is impossible not to com
pare His wonderfully comprehensive
torn ) of prayer , in widen "submission before -
fore t'od and charity toman" imply "the
conquest and humiliation of self. "
In spite , however , of his earnest exhortations -
hortations to his fellow-countrymen to
seek the true God , Zoroaster seems at
first to have met with little encourage
ment , and in one of his sacred songs wo
find him bursting forth into this lamenta
tion : "To what land shall I turn ?
Whither shall I go in turning ? Owing to
the desertion of the master and his com
panions , none of tlio servants pay reverence
once to me , nor do the wicked rulers of
the company. How shall 1 worship Tlioo
further , O God ? " Hut success was in
store for him , and his teaching was des
tined to exert for a long time tv powerful
sway over Ids country.
Some doubt prevails as to the exact
time and place Zoroaster lived , but it is
generally agreed that ho was born in
Itactria over a thousand years ago. As re
gards his personal life little Is known ; the
detail * of his life as handed down to us
being entirely legendary and uuhistori-
cal. That ho was a man , however , of ox <
traordinar.y intellectual abilities is nm
verbally admitted , having been styled
"tho master of the old living creation , "
"tho abyss of knowledge and truth. "
It was his misfortune to have lived at a
primitive period in the world's history ,
oven when the wisest men groped in the
dark in search of truth ; and , if wo reflect
how steeped in ignorance and idolatry
the nations wore with whom Zoroaster
came in contact throughout Ids life , we
cannot but admire the courage with
which he proclaimed his belief and faith
in the true God.
Hut it should be added that the super
stltious notices ami practices which are
"so prominent and rcpulslvo" in the
so-called later Zoroaslrlanism would have
had no sympathy with our sago. Indeed ,
as Mr. Cook points out , thoMicrcd chants
or Gatlms attributed to Zoroaster , nud
admitted by all critics to give a faithful
representation of his religious views , are
entirely free from all such pernicious
tenets. In short , the principles of boliol
in an omniscient and all-merciful God ,
as set forth by Zoroaster in the national
religion which he founded , approach far
nearer the old Hebrew faith which pre
pared mankind for Christianity than can
be said of most of the other religion i sys
tems framed by the loading intellects at
respective periods in the world's history.

" 1 wish 1 was a minister , " said a con
tractor who stood by. Tlioro was envy
in lus glatico as ho looked at tlio big
bunch of marriage certificates. "What
do you suppose they get apioeov"
"Well,1'said Mr. Carman , reflectively ,
setting his white hat before him on his
desk and knocking the ashes oil' his
cigar , "one of them was in hero ono day
and said they'd average $5. Another
ono said that Sr'J was nearer right. Hut
then another told mo that when one got
$10 he didn't say anything about it. " 1

"They're all jealous of Dobbins , " said
Iho contractor. "I'd like to know how beget
got ahead of 'em. "
"Who is Dobbins and how did he got
ahead of thorn ? " asked a third person.
"The Hovorond John Y. Dobbins. " said
the city clerk , "is pastor of the Tabor-
naele Methodist church. You see , when
the Camden marriage boom began last
October ho didn't get much. There
would bo ten or twenty a month from
him. About the l.'ith ofMareh ho was in
and said : 'Somehow 1 seem to bo out of
the track of these marriages. I hardly
get any. ' Immediately after that lie be
gan to turn them in by scores. This
month he and Mr. Diverty report ninety-
four. The other ministers can't make it
"Ho gives the hacknien a commission , "
said the contractor , in a matter-of-fact
It was simple as A , H , C to him.
The Hev. John E. Diverty , to whom
the city clerk alluded , is the
Hev. Air. Dobbins' brother-in-
law , and as supposed in
Camden , his partner , the Kov. Air. Dobbins
bins , is n grand army man. When ho
went away on the San Francisco pilgrim
age ho left the Hev. Mr. Diverty , who is
the pastor of a smaller church in Camden
don , to act for him. The marrume cpro-
monies appear in the published notices
as having been celebrated at the
residence of tlio Kov. John Y.
Dobbins , Xo. r > U3 North Third
street , Camden. The HoV. Mr. Diverty
performs them at present , but Ins name
docs not appear. It is , therefore , con
jectured in Camden that tlio articles of
partnership of Dobbins & Diverty con
tain a stipulation that the senior part
ner is to have all the advertising. That
tlio lirm is prosperous is attested by the
city clerk's ligurcs. Their monthly
product is seventy marriages. Even at
the bottom market ligure of $3 this makes
$140 per mensem to bo divided. No cap
ital is required and there is no risk.
The Hov. J. J. Sleeper is tlio only
Episcopal minister engaged in the busi
ness , and his returns are small. Ho has ,
however , hit upon a novel advertising
scheme , which promises in time to put
his receipts alongside of those of the lirm
of Dobbins & Diverty. Mr. Sleeper has
had printed on all Ins Jotters n map of
the river fronts of Camden and Philadel
phia , with dotted lines indicating what
ferries may bo taken to his house -.it
Cooper and Point streets , which is con
veniently near the most-traveled ferries
indicated. Mr. Sleeper has no Camileu
charge , but cares for the spiritual wel
fare of the llock of St. Ambrose , Twenty-
eight street and GirarJ nvcnuo , this city.
Though the reverend lirm of Dobbins
& Diverty are far and away in advance
of all competitors , there are other
Camden ministers who do a snug busi
ness in matrimony. All the ministerial
merchant princes are Methodists. It is a
cold month when the Hev. ( Jeorgo H.
Wight , pastor of the Third Street Metho
dist Episcopal church , handles jess than
forty-live couples. The Hov. William P.
jJavis1 business is looking up at the
parsonage of the Hroadway Methodist

output of a couple and a third a day , or

JIow tlio Ollve-C"ompto\lonetl Sou or
Italy Keeps tin with the Time * ,
An olivc-couiplovionod son of Italy , his
hat , clothing , anil particularly his shoes ,
evidencing long service and hard ufago ,
struggled up the two Ilights of steep
stairs that led to the factory of ono ol the
most prominent manufacturers of tdreot
organ * In this eity , the other day , says
the Now York Star , and shitting from his
neck the greasy lealiiprn strap that sup
ported an org.m on his back ho placed
the iustruuuMit on the lloor with evident
relief. Taking his hat oil' , ho gave a nod
of recognition to the proprietor of the
establishment and proceeded to mop the
great beads of perspiration from Ids low
forehead with a verv dirty and ragged
silk handkerchief thai might in its palm
ier days have been orange-colored. This
operation liui-dipd , he said , pointing-
the rusty-looking box before him with an
expression of the most absolute disgust
and with a video full of tooling !
"iNogood ! "
"What is the matter with it ? " asked
the proprietor of tlio place.
" /e instrument no play a good tune.
No make a money. It itoo /ad. too

ll-.ving been assured that the instru
ment would be enlivened forthwith , and
that bo might call for il in a few days the
the Italian gave a parting look at the
picture of Genoa in the front panel , and
shambled oil. When ho had disappeared ,
a reporter who happened to bo present
during tlio above dialogue said to the fat ,
jovial-looking organ-maker anil repairer ,
whoso countenance bore an amused
"What is to bo the latest agony in
hand organ music , or in other words ,
what are to be the tunes that will sot all
Ne.w York cra/y this fall ? "
"That is a pretty hard question to
answer , " lie replied , "as it depends very
largely upon the taste of the respective
musicians. Some of them know what
they want , and some don't. Hut , as most
of them leave it to mo to make the se
lections for them , why , ol course , I have
to keep up with all the latest music , and
1 put in siicli times as 1 think will bo
most popular. That man who just wont
put ot bore is a fair illustration of bow
ignorant some of these men aro. Ills
organ was too sentimental for his gay
nature anil ho wanted a lively air or two
to substitute for 'Old lliindrd , ' or 'Tlio
Heart Howcd Down. " Now someone has
told him that 'Pop Goes the Weasel' is
the right tiling. Of course , that is played
out long ago. and I shall have to give him
something ot the .same nature that is not
quite so ancient. "
"Do they come in often to have now
"O , yes ; about every six months , some
times oftoncr. You see it costs $ -1 or $ C
to get a now time put in. They generally
have two done at once. An ordinary
street organ plays six or eight airs , and
they keep changing them until they got
what they like , and then very likely they
will rim along on the same barrel for
quite a while. Some of the latest sopgs'
that will probablv run this winter are
'Hocking the Haby , ' 'White Wings,1 and
the 'Cricket on the Hearth. ' Then there
is the 'Lullaby' and 'When Love is
Young. ' from that now comic opera
'Ermlt'io.1 Wo get a great many songs
that are popular from England. 'Sweet
Dreamland Faces , ' 'Going to Mar
ket , 'Tit for Tat' have taken
very well and will , no doubt ,
run for some time yet. Ilarrigan
hasn't got out anything new as yet , bat
wo will probably near from him HOOD. In
the meantime , yiaxtcr Avenue. ' 'Don-
ny Grady's Hack , ' 'It Showered Again'
and 'Put on Your Hridal Veil1 will still
remain on the barrels. Scanlan's now
songs , I expect will take well , and 1 will
probably put his 'Hose Song * and
'Gather tno Myrtle with Alary1 into some
of those organs you sco hero , 'The Mi
kado' is beginning to got played out , and
will have to take a rest. Wo will run the
'Gypsy Huron' and 'Little Tycoon' for
some time yet. "
"Do old tunes over revive ? " I
"Yos , indeed. Wo generally give the
now tunes a run for about a year , and
then hang them up for a while. If they

"is the hand-organ business on the de
cline ? "
"No , sir. Tliore arc moio street organs
about to-day than ever before , although
you may not notice so many tlio city has
grown so largo. The business is too good
not to have plenty of recruits. A good
player can always make money at it. Ho

neighborhood bo will bo recognized as n
public nuisance and bo paid to move on ,
while in tint tenement districts he is wel
come and gets all tlio spare pennies about
to remain. So , you see , in both cases ho
There are several establishments in
New York and vicinity that supply hand-
organs to the itinerant grinder , and
whether they are indictable or not as
public nuisances is a question which the
sull'cnng public has refrained from test
ing. Most of the followers of thU pro
fession own their organs , but many of
them rout them , A street organ
is worth from $30 to $300 , and
weighs from twenty to seventy
pounds. The average weight , however -
over , is about thirty pounds. They will
last , if properly made and handled , in the
neighborhood of twenty years , and can
be repaired so often in tlio meantime that
very litllo of tlio original instrument will
remain in the end. There is the greatest
diHorcnco between players , and it deus
not follow that two men will , with the
same organ , imiKo the same amount ol
money , A poor player will collect barely
00 or 70 cents fora day's work , wnilo a
good , bright performer , with plenty of
expression , will gather in $1 or 5 bo
twcon sniiritii and Minsot. The business
yields 011 an average $2.150 or ? 3 a day.
One of the best-Known organ -grinders
several years ago was a.young and pretty
Italian girl about Stwonly years ot ago.
She was strong and well built , and , con
