Robert Stoll, a Champion Ama
UNSURPASSED FOR SIX TEARS.
Sralcolm W. Ford Writes About His "Won
derful Performances A 39-IncIi Chest
and Remarkably Developed Arm Mus
cles Rentier Him Practically Invincible
at tho Game.
Although championships at field games
lave been given for about fifteen years in
amateur athletic circles, similar titles have
been given for gymnastic performances only
since 18S5. The first gymnastic champion
ship meeting was held at Tammany hall,
2vow York city, under the auspices of tho
American Athletic club. Robert Stoll,
whose picture is given here, won the event
known as the flying rings on that occasion,
and each year since then he has demon
strated his superiority in this line. The
other events on the programmes each year
are parallel bars, horizontal bar, club
swinging and rope climbing. These other
events have been distributed pretty well
nmong various athletes, but the list of
champions on the flying rings for the six
years shows no other name than Stoll.
He made his debut in athletics as a mid
dle distance runner, and at a half mile
from the years
1881 to 18S5 he
ranked third or
fourth best i n
America. He is
5 feet G inches tall,
and weighs 142
pounds in athletic
clothes. When he
was running his
Viocf. Via nut. nn n.
Ltirely different fig
ure from the aver-
Uxk-agc foot racer, for
' he was heavily
built around the
chest and arms
and looked more
like a miniature
than one who was
fleet footed. Since
from running he
has worked con
siderably in a
parallel and hori
zontal bars and
the rings, and tho
EOBERT STOLL. muscles Of his
arms, chest and shoulders have grown in
size a great deal. His chest measurement
now is S3 inches, and his biceps with arm
"bent are 14 inches. These dimensions are
very large for one of his height andnweight,
"but the strength he has gained by their de
velopment enables him to perform feats on
the flying rings consisting entirely of arm
work, which, so.far, have not been dupli
cated by any other amateur, although thero
have been nianj- aspirants.
His specialties on tho rings are forward
and back scalps, one arm horizontals,
swinging hand balances, the cross and very
slowpull and push ups. He not only has
a monopoly so far- as ease and graco of
movement is concerned, but the combina
nations in which he commences on one fe.it
and does not drop from the rings until he
has performed three or four others, making
one movement of the lot, is whero his chief
superiority is noticed. A number of good
judges who were present last March when
Stoll won the flying ring championship for
the sixth time said that they had never
eeen a professional who could equal him in
somoof his combinations. On this occa
sion Stoll won 43 points out of a possible
45, and the other competitors, although
they were high class, seemed almost like
,3iovices alongside of nim.
In 18S8 rope climbing was added to the
programme, the game consisting of climb
ing a certain length, of rope against time.
Stoll won tho ovent, defeat ing the next
man by two-fifths of a becond; but in 1SS9
nd 1800 he had to succumb to the quicker
ncting muscles of other men. He thinks
that so much practice in heavy arm exer
cise to acquire proficiency on tho flying
rings has made his muscles too slow for
cfast rope climbing.
His build is very suitable for arm work,
for his legs are not heavy, and he therefore
lias less weight to support or carry when
on tho apparatus. Ho c.ercises regularly
-certain evenings in a gymnasium and at
tends to a successful jewelry business dur

A SONG OF HOPE.
Bunny days are 064(10?.
Happy hearts are beating',
Smiling lips repeating:
"How cheerful Is this earth,1"
Fearing not the morrow.
Seeking not to borrow ,
From another's sorrow
' A clamper for their mirth.
But other hopes are dying;
And other hearts are sighing,
And other lips are crying:
"Ch, welcome, tardy Death I
Our life is but a bubble;
Our lot is pain-and trouble;
We're gathered ody stubble,
And felt tho tempest's breath."
Alas I some lives are tearful,
And others bright and cheerful,
But be cot sad nor fearful,
For heavea is just and fair.
TLe miser dies for treasure.
The monarch sees no leisure,
And they who seek but pleasure
Scon find that castle air.
And they -whom life oppresses
rind heaven doubly blesses
And soothes their sad distresses,
And all vriil rightly proTe.
For heaven's smile is o'er us
And heaven's bow before us.
So join the mighty chorus
Of praise. Tor God is lore.

THE OFFICE BOY.
How He May Get Promoted and How He
May Get the Other Thing:.
Are office boy3 never promoted, then?
Certainly. I have known several cases,
and will give a free translation of three
I wrote a note to a book house that ran
after this fashion:
I want 3 ou to try as a boy Fred . He Is
plucky, means business, will not whine about pro-
...rootion, will work as early and late as you wish,
wul hold his tongue, and will earn 52 for every
one j ou pay him. He will be content with S3 a
I received this reply in substance:
I have no vacancy among the boys, but such a
boy as you mention will always pay twice over.
It was a loud commendation you gave him. If
you dare stand by it, send him along. I shall
keep your indorsement for ready reference.
Fred reported for work the next morn
ing. He began at the bottom, sweeping,
dusting, clearing up, talcing away books,
carrying off waste paper, etc. In a
short time the store looked as it never
did before. He was the first thero in
the morning and the last at night He
never asked what to do next, but found
Botnething to do until new work was
assigned. He kept his mouth shut, his
eyes and ears open, and his feet and
thoughts active. The fifth week they
raised him to o and gave him work
above four other youths whom, he found
there. At the end of four months he
was raised to 12 a week without ask
Ben went from the high school into
an office at 3 a week. They told him
plainly that there was no probability of
promotion, as no boy had been promoted
for twelve years, but there was a possi
bility. There was nothing about him
that was promising. He had not stood
high in school, was not a good penman,
was not strong physically; but he went
to work with the full determination that
he would "get there."
A few days after the senior member of
the firm saw him going to the postofiice,
and was so delighted with his evident
intent to boom the mail business that ho
said to his associates: "I wish there was
some way to label Ben 'This boy is from
the house of & .' It is worth
something to havo such an exhibition of
business on the street."
In the course of a few months another
boy was secured, and Ben was given $6,
until, in less than three years, he was
having $20 a week, making a place for
himself by the wn he did everything.
In those three years a thousand other
boys in Boston had changed from place
to place, and were still working for $3
or $4 a week.
The boy who is merely an office boy
will never be promoted, neither will ho
who is above being an office boy; who is
lazy, indifferent, talkative, sulky, moody,
meddlesome, envious, jealous, afiaid of
doing more than his share, and bound
not to earn more than he is paid for. Ho
will bo promoted who makes himself
equal to every emergency; who loves
work, learns how to work, how to be
cheerful and-loyal, lending a hand every
where; who puts brains into his work;
who lets his "head 6ave his heels;" who
will work anywhere, at any time, at any
thing, without complaint. A. E. "Win
ship in Golden Rule.
The Endurance of the Camel.
Admiral D. D. Porter, who once went
to North Africa to secure camels for in
troduction into America, said in a
recent interview: "In their campaigns
against Algiers, the French were
surprised to see their camels, al
though reduced to skeletons, making
forced marches with their loads. Mules
in their condition could not have carried
even their saddles. A camel's flesh is
as good as beef. You can hardly tell one
meat from the other. Camel's milk is
very good, as I can testify, because I
used it in my coffee. A camel generally
drinks once in three days, and besides
his four stomachs ho carries a sort of
reservoir in which he stores water. 1
have been told that even ten days after
the death of a camel this reservoir can bs
opened and ten or fifteen pint3 of clear,
drinkable water taken from it.
"On one occasion six camels carried
3,6-iS pounds of oats and made the jour
ney in much quicker time than two wag
ons, each drawn by six mules, and to
gether carrying about the same weight
of load. On a very heavy road a caravan
of our camels carried from San Antonio
nearly two tons of oats, making about
twenty miles a day. The roads were
such that wagons could not have been
used at all. 1 believe this is an experi
ment worth trying again. The camel
would not only make a valuable adjunct
to our army in the northwest and west,
but I believe the day is coming in which
he will be domesticated as a beast of
burden all through the southern and
middle regions of this country."

The committee on appeals in the grand
lodge of Pennsylvania in their report state
that "a resident of one state cannot enter
another for the purposo of receiving the
degrees in Masonry without first having
the permission of the grand lodge holding
proper jurisdiction over his residence; it
carefully guards its own borders and can
not permit an injury or injustice to a
neighboring jurisdiction by its own or any
act of its subordinate lodges." An appli
cant who had falsely represented his resi
dence to be in Philadelphia when it was in
Atlantic City, X. J., was expelled from all
the rights and privileges of Freemasonry.
The Masons of Chicago are perfecting
plans for a new temple to cost some $3,000,

ganized an incorporated company for the
same purpose. The prospects for building
a new temple in San Francisco are consid
ered favorable. The one now at the corner
of Post and Montgomery streets is inade
quate to tho demands made upon it, and
the first definite move that is likely to take
place towards obtaining a new structure
will be the sale of the former, which will
be an easy matter to effect.
