"ICnow Kohrer remarked '
, 'Squire Biggs ,
"I should s.iy I did know him , When I was
keeping tne Biggs house , i.ycais ago , there
came there n boy , who urged me so hard to
give him work that I concluded to try him.
It was work he wanted. I saw he was a
pusher und meant business , and when ho
told mo ho would work for his board rather
than bo idle , I was pleased. I gave him a
chnnco to work around the house , und paid
him $10 a month nnd his board. I told him
that when he got a chance to get a better
t-ort of a job I would help him into it if I
could. 1 never had a more faithful boy
around me. He worked like a nailer. One
day he came to me and said he thought he
could get a place in the iiostoftlco bookstore.
There wasn't quite so much in it on the
start , counting his board , but he thought ho
had better take It , and I thought so , too. Ho
kept boarding with mo nnd working along ,
undone night ho told me that he heard of a
position in the railway ofllco under Morse ,
who was then the agent. He thought he
would try and get it. I told him ho could go
to work there in the morning if ho wanted
to , and that very night I went to Morse , told
him what port of a fellow Kohrer was , and
he said for me to send him down in the
morning. Then ho went to work there.
Yes , Kohrer has worked 'himself up. He's
a pusher , and as faithful as ho is energetic. "

Thoughts for New Years.
The Rev. T. J. Mackcy delivered a very
practical , everyday discourse yesterday
morning from the text "Therefore for thy
name's sake lead thou me and guide me. "
"Life , " said the speaker , "with nil its mul
titudes of changes and vicissitudes , its stories
of joy and sorrow , triumph und defeat , can
bo summed up in n few short sentences. Life
is made up of a few criccs , nnd around them
are grouped the circumstances which form
the every day detail of existence. The im
portant feature in human life is Its lack of
continuity. Think over your past life and in
stantly there springs up a few events which
stand as figureheads of the whole. Your
first love ; your first temptation nnd fall , or
triumph. Your first great loss that which
rent your heart and soul nnd Hooded the fu
ture with tears and regrets. These mark the
epochs in your life and mine. It is nature's
law the plan of all existence , and there is
no cessation. The fiow is ever passing out
ward and returns not to Its source.
Wo Inherit a certain amount of force at
birth nnd this Is expended as we live and
meet the realities w.hich confront us. This it
is which gives us the victory or the lack of it
which dooms us to defeat. Wo are not the
architects of our own fortunes. Wo think
we govern our own acts , but Ho who rends
our hearts and witnesses our struggles
knows better. I do not mean to say wo have
no power over our own acts , but we have no
contiolo\ertlio circumstances which make
thcso epochs in our lives. All human experi
ence is not the same. U varys in nil liy&s.
hearts are like musical Instruments , The
same circumstances do not produce the same
vibrations in all. The hand of n great sorrow -
row strikes these strings and n discord rends
the air. Out of this river of te.u-s ono will
coino stronger and better , while another will
go down into destruction andforgctfulness.
To-day 'wo stand face to face with a your
that has gone. What has It brought to us *
What shall stand to our record as a result of
Its coming and going ) Do wo face u great
sorrow ! Bo strong to bear it. Do wo face
a great temptation i Ho strong to over
come it. Has It brought us n great fall I
arise , and in the strength of Him who was
more than man , and who has promised to bo
with us , wrest from the Imnd of failure a
Once a year Is not too often to stand face
to face with conscience and ask what these
sorrows mean. Have they brought us nearer
to God I If not they have been in vain , and
ol no value to us , for whose benefit they were
given , At least you can raise a psalm ol
thanksgiving and a prayer for the blessings
you havereceived. . There- are wrongs you
can remedy. Do It. ' Do justice to all , anil
honor to whom honor is due. God pity us ir
our poor , human weakness ns wo Jostle
against each other in the pathway of life ,
Cod pity us all In our pitiful strife. Let us
nil determine to bo more human ; more loviiif
and kind ; moro considerate of the weaknesses
and fallings of our fellows ; more helpful t (
each other In our mutual struggle to wlr
from llfo the greatest things which It ant
eternity has with which to crown conscien
tious human-life ,

Providence Journal : On Sunday is
the best tiino to see this colony , because
then it otters the strangest and strongest
contrast with the life which Mil-rounds
it. East Broadway is the main thor
oughfare in this colony. The oneo
grand avenue of the rich Quakers of
forty years ago the street that led to
the houses of the progenitors of Henry
Bergh and Berry Wall and the now
aristocratic KooscveHs. The solid big
hoiiaos are there yet , with their high
stoops and broad fronts and inansion-liUo
appearance , but how changed , how badly
changed. Pillows and carpets hang
from their upper windows , what wore
once the dining rooms and parlors
are packed thick with workmen and
workwomen making clothing , and
the windows and walls are lined with
bales of the cheapest coats and troupers
imaginable. Queer , bloiisy women in
grca y wigs nnd very odd-looking men
in long beards are running hither and
thither. The roadway and gutters are
full of refuse and waste , the air is heavy
with bad odors , the breath on all the
window panes is the breath of squalor
neglect and indifference to appearances
and comfort. Very strange signs are
over the doors. The characters are
Hebrew. The only words we can read
are the proper names , nearly all ending
iu the letters "sky" or uski. " Sunday
to these folks , as to all but the liberal
Hebrews , is as Monday is to us. There
is only ono way in which they observe
our Sabbath. That is by closing their
theaters. They do this because our laws
forbid their being opened.
By mounting any ono of a dozen flights
of steps we can step from New York to
modern Asia Minor , almost to ancient
Judca. It is in the synagogue that this
change confronts us. They are bare ,
forlorn places mere rooms full of
benches but they are highly important
to this strange community. Hero the
rabbis preside , and the rabbi.is , ns ho
used to bo , the chief source of authority
nnd wisdom. He preaches here on Sat
urdays , teaches school all the week ,
holds court perpetually ns a judge before
whom all dissensions and disputes are
brought , marries , christens , confirms ,
blesses , advises , exhorts , chastises , and ,
in a word , guides and controls his Hock.
Like nearly all the men ho wears a vel
vet cap , and like all the refrains from
shaving his beard. His language is
sometimes Hebrew , but in most cases ho
uses the tongue of his people , a singular
mixture of Hebrew and Polish , or Hebrew -
brow and the tongue of whatever other
Slav race ho belongs to. All about the
neighborhood are bookstores and the
booiks arc all printed in ono polyglot or
another corresponding with the talk of
The young girls are moro or less fair
and pleasing to the eye. The majority
are swart , but some are very fair blondes
with golden tresses. All the married
women look alike , however , for all have
shaved their heads and wear wigs of
black hair , proceeding in their looks
from little stems of cord or horse hair.
It is said that this mechanism of the wig
does not show when they are now , but
I never saw ono that did not show its
secrets any moro than I over saw a
Chinaman's queue that was not length
ened with black thread or horse hair.
These married women are made to look
still loss attractive by their fashion
of wearing their waistband almost
under their armpits. The strongest
predilection is for rod dresses ,
and their next strongest is for wearing
them for lengths of time exceeding
human belief. Their wigs servo in
stead of other head covering , so that
one is next to never seen in a hat or
bonnet , no matter where or how far she
goes. Even on railroad journeys they
go bareheaded. They are not allowed
to cover while in church , where I'hoy
sit apart from the u\en , and I have
heard that amon.g the strictest of the
Orthodox tie women may not cover in
the presence of their husbands. However -
over , n. perusal of Deuteronomy and
Lovitscus ( which I beg to state are
books iu the bible ) will show exactly
what the strictest rules of the race were ,
and , in the main , remain to-day.
Life In Montana.
San Francisco Chronicle : Montana
must altogether a pleasant country.
Domooracy seems to obtain in a form
which would perhaps please the anarch
ist , if the anarchist did not want all
things and nil people to work for his
personal comfort. The gambling houses
there are all proudly labeled BO that you
cannot mistake thorn for churches or
private residences. 'Licensed Gambling
House' is there in full , big print , and in
those exciting establishments which
men and women , negroes , Chinese nnd
Indians gamble in utter annihilation of
race prejudices. Money bet levels all
ranks in race and makes the white , yel
low and red men brothers , perhaps with
the same difference in personal ideas of
value as the chips. The most prominent
hotel i looked upon ns a palatial. The
bed rooms are six oy four. One can under
stand why they gamble thcro. But
Montana is not any worse than Cali
fornia used to bo. There wore plncot > in

How those who once lived in the cab
ins of the "quarters" are moving on the
plantation halls is thus illustrated by
the Savannah ( Ga. ) News :
A great many of the plantations In the
different parts of the south , which were
once well known for their size , the mag
nificence of the residences upon them ,
the hospitality of their owners on ac
count of the prominence of the families
which possessed them , are now falling
into ruins. The reason of this is , por-
hapi , that the land has been worked so
long without being fertilized that it has
become poor , or it may bo that those into
whoso possession it has passed lack the
energy and skill which nro required to
make it pay under the present system
of labor. Ono of those famous old places ,
in Liberty county , this state , was lately
bold to a colored man for $2.500 , only
a part of the purchase price being re
quired at onco. It is known as Laurel
View , nnd is within two miles of the
historic town of Sutibury. It was the
homo of the gifted John Elliott , and a
very beautiful homo it was. John
Elliott represented Georgia in the
United States senate from 1820 to 1820.
The plantation contains 2,800 acres. It
was purchased during the war of seces
sion oy Linton Stephens , a brother of
Alexander H. Stephens , and was sold
to the present owner by his heirs. The
district in which the plantation is situ
ated was noted , from the first settlement
of the state until the emancipation of
the slaves , for the intelligence and
wealth of its citizens. It is now , how
ever , almost entirely abandoned to the
colored people. Its great plantations
have been divided into small farms , and
the superb mansions , once the homes of
men noted for wealth and culture , and
of women famous for beauty and refine
ment , are falling into decay , and nro
being replaced by cabins and huts ,
whoso chimneys of sticks and mud toll
moro plainly than words of the marvel
ous elmngo for the worse which has
taken place in the once rich and pros
Cnuglit by a Devil Fish.
St. Louis Republican : "What's
wanted below thcro ? " called the mate
as ho loanedovortho rail , having heard
Webb's cry of ularm as wo were sitting
in the yawl , painting the ship half u
mile oil' the beach at Barbadoes.
"I I saw something go under the
boat , sir. "
"Oh , you did. Well , if you bawl out
again you'll feel something go under
your jacket. "
I began work again nnd had been at
it only a few minutes when the yawl
heaved away from the ship three or four
feet , and at the same instant the boy
screamed out ' agi'in. His voice had
scarcely reached my cars when some
thing Hashed before my o.vcs ; something
caught my arm and'pullcd it down and
pinned it fast to my body , and in five
seconds moro I know what had hap
pened. A devil fish had Hung ono of
his arms about mo. Webb was scream
ing nt the top of his voice and , as I got
a look at him , I saw that two of the
beast's feelers wore clutching him. The
arm or feeler which had reached mo
pinned my arm to my side as if in a vice ,
making a clean wrap around my body ,
and the extreme end of the feeler crept
long my neck and fnco.
Talk of pain. I never felt anything
iko it. It was a burning , biting , blis-
; ering sensation , as if a live coal had
jccn laid on the flesh. I added my
, 'ells to those of Webb , but before any
3110 came to the rail I was jerked to my
cnccs in the boat and saw the crca-
uro's object was to pull mo overboard.
. ' heard the boy go down and thrash
xbout , and throe of the men came to our
The devil fish had outwitted himself.
Io had gone under the ship and fast
ened to her bottom or keel , and ns soon
as ho began pulling on us of course ho
pulled the yawl close against the shin's
side. That closed the gap , and no
could not pull us overboni-d. Then the
men began to cut and hack and slash
ivith their knives , and cftor two or
minutes they had us free not of
ho arms , but of the creature.
Wo wore hoisted on board , howling
and groaning , with the feelers still bit-
"ng , and they had to bo cut from us
almost by inches.
The devil fish minded the loss of his
three arms for only half an hour , at the
end of which time ho clutched the
empty boat , half capsized her , and swam
twice around the ship as a defiance to
the crow. Two or throe musket balls
were fired into him , and ho sank out of
sight , to bo seen no moro Curing our
