After a man has worked in shopi
for ton or fifteen years'there is a great
desire for a change. Some wiant to go
out on a farm, others think -that the
invention of something that van ibo
patented will solve th problem, while
others want to own d run a shop
themselves. The latter is really the
true mechanic, but not necessarily the
man who will get out the most or even
the best work while working for a
boss, says Ctfarles Henry in the Work
ers' Magazine. On the contrary. he
will often be considered the lazy man
by the foreman when the work is of
an ever recurring character. Let. how
ever, some difficulty arise in conmec
tion with a job or have some hard
proposition to meet and he will always
have a suggestion to offer that will
help to solve the problem, while the
ordinary man and the hustler will
stand around helpless and often dis
interested. He will have the elemen
tary laws of mechanics and physics ut
his finger tips, will know enough of
electricity to allow him to discourse
upon the subject in an intelligent man
ner, and he will be well posted upon
the mechanical progress of the day.

In the parish church, where her prayer

dungeon which served as the borough
prison, and it was to the amelioration
of the lot of the wretched prisoners
that Sarah Martin devoted her life.
Earning a bare subsistence of fifteen
pence a day by tolling from early
morning till far on into the night, she
yet rianaged to give up one day in the

poverty, but the result of her life's
work was the reform of the prison
