Speaking of war, an internecine induF
trial confl.ct is an entirely new thing.
Industrial forces turned against the in
dustries by which they have subsisted
would be wholly a fresh subject for
TRIUMPH OR GO DOWN.
The strike, in the absence of subsequent
outrage and bloodshed, would have
proved grotesque, because of its want of
sense and its undue proportions. There
was no controversy between the A. R.
U. and their employers, as not a mau
was discharged upon the one hand, nor
any increase of wages demanded on the
other. Everything was running as
smoothly a3 possible, considering the
direful stress of tlie times, which have
been rendered almost disastrous through
the partisanship of the party in power.
Strikes ordinarily originate in tome
specific cause or from some well defined
grievance. The coal strikes of last spring
were wholly warranted. Every coal
miner in the United States would have
been justified in striking against tiie un
righteous combine which, taking advan
tage of the rime, undertook to rob the
miner by cutting his wages on the one
hand, and on the other hand, to rob the
consumer by forcing up the price of
coal in the market But the Debs strike
seems to have been one of personal
aggrandizement and for political pur
poses. The Pullman incident was but
an opportunity aud a pretense. There
was undoubtedly a grievance at the
Pullman shops; certain it is that there
was a disagreement. And public sym
pathy was with the men who struck.
But the strike Leing made thero was no
attempt to replace union men
with scabs. The shops were sim
ply closed, which settled it.
Debs' action was not only the reopening
of a case where a "walk out" and a
"close up" had occurred, but the involv
ing of tens of thou-auds of others who,
by no action of theirs could reach the
closed factory at Pullman. Tiiere is no
way to force a man or company that has
been closed out to open up and resume
aain. Debs from his desire to
earn his ten thousand dollar salary, or
his ambition for notoriety, has
given oig.inized labor the worst blow it
ever got. He forced his organization into
a contest in which they must ti iumph or
go down, and ia order to triumph gov
ernment itself would have had to yield
its prerogatives. Victory under such
conditions was impossible. As for Sov
ereign, he is but an irresponsible blath
erskite who was no moro fit to succeed
Powderlv than he would have been to
succeed Benjamin Harrison. While
Debs has openly advised peace.Sovereign
would secretly instigate war. Instead
of proving a contest to settle a grievance,
or an effort to secure arbitration between
labor and capital, it is one of the sov
ereignty of law aud tho claims of or
ganized labor, tho cause being a closed

the people to stomach.
"What does Debs mean by accepting

lowers? How does it come that Debs is on such
terms of intimacy with these two men
that they wili come forward with bail?
In this connection the story of Debs'

drunkenness and his subsequent back
sliding does not sound well.
It is also announced that Clarence
Darrow is to defend Debs. Who is Dar

HUMBERT AND FRANCIS JOSEPH.
Indications of "the peculiar relations
existing between the courts of Vienna
and Rome were manifested tho other
day, when Emperor Francis Joseph was
permitted to cross over the Italian ter
ritory on his way to visit Emperor Wil
liam at Abbazia, without any of tho
customary forms of courtesy and atten
tion being paid to him by the Italian
This neglect by the Italians was
made all the more pointed seeing that
King Humbert was at that moment at
Venice preparing to receive tho visit of
Emperor William, which followed im
mediately after the departure of the
Austrian monarch, who for a second
time passed several hours traveling
through tho northern portion of Italy
on the way back to his capital.
Tho strained relations which led to
this lack of courtesy on the part of King
Humbert are due, says tho New York
Recorder, to the persistent refusal of
tho emperor and empress to return at
Rome the state visit which King Hum
"bert and Queen Marguerite were per
suaded by their ministers to pay to tho
court of Vienna just ten years ago. Tho
visit ought to have been returned with
in at the latest twelve months, and the
emperor's hesitation and delay in the
matter aro attributable to the compli
cations which would arise in connec
tion with tho Vatican, since tho pontiff
absolutely refuses to receive at tho
Vatican any Catholic sovereign who has
not first paid his respects to the head
of tho church before holding any inter
course with tho quirinaL
King Humbert of course insists that
the first visit should be to the qnirinal,
and this renders the stay of Catholic
royalties in the eternal city a source of
endless complications and awkward
contretemps. To make matters worse,
Empress Elizabeth has, even since tho
death of her son, visited Rome incog
nito, and been received by the pope
without pa3ing the slightest attention
to the quirinal, and that it was after
this that she was permitted to make a
stay at Venice -without receiving any
attention from the Italian authorities,
being even forced to take her turn

royal palace in which sko had formerly

The influence of different occupations
on adults, of town and country life, of
intellectual and physical exercises and
athletics is well brought out by an
thropometric inquiry. Measurements
extending over twenty-seven successive
years have been made at the school
of the Society of Friends at York.
Friends are largely a commercial and
therefore a town-dwelling class, and
yet thero is a slight improve
ment shown in stature and a very
decided improvement shown in weight
of the boys attending this school
in later years. The beneficial action of
the factory acts, of higher wages,
cheaper and better food and clothing
and improved sanitary surroundings of
the working classes in recent years, is
brought out by the measurements.
On the other hand, observations show
that school life under favorable condi
tions impedes the physical development
of the children, and this is most mark
ed in charity schools. Measurements
maoe at the duke of York's school at
Chelsea show that the children are the
son-s of soldiers, and therefore of a
class elected for physical 3tnes
were until recently very inferior
in stature and weight to boys
of their own class living ' in their
own homes, A similar falling off has
prevailed at the Blue Coat school among
boys belonging to a higher class of so
ciety, in consequence of bad sanitary
arrangements and probable faults in
the feeding and discipline of the. in
mates. The average stature of boys of
different classes of the community va
ries between the best-nurtured boys in
our public schools and the worst-nurtured
claKs in our industrial schools to
the extent of about seven inches in boys
of the age of fourteen years.
A fact of rather peculiar nature has
also been brought to light by anthro
ponietry namely, that cirls from
eleven to iourteen years are
taller and heavier than bovs of
corresponding ages. The aver- j pressure. Moreover, although more

inches in stature and ten pounds in
weight, while criminals are two inches
shorter and eighteen pounds lighter,
besides showing a marked deficiency of
physical as -well as mental stamina.

The view from the peak, once beheld,
can never be forgotten. The first sen
sation is that of complete isolation.
The silence is profound. The clouds
are below us, and noiselessly break in
foaming billows against the faces of
the beetling cliffs. Occasionally the si
lence is broken by the deep roll of
thunder from the depths beneath, as
though the voice of the Creator were
uttering a stern edict of destruction.
The storm rises, the mists envelop us,
there is a rush of wind, a rattle of hail,
and we seek refuge in the hotel. Pause
a moment before entering and hold up
your hands. You can feel the sharp
tingle of the electric current as it es
capes from your finger tips. The storm
is soon over, and you can see the sun
beams gilding the upper surface of the
white clouds that sway and swing below
you, half way down the mountain sides,
and completely hide from view the
world beneath. The scenery shifts;
like a drawn curtain the clouds part,
and, as from the heights of another
sphere, we look forth upon the majesty
of the mountains and the plains. An
ocean of inextricably entangled peaks
j sweeps into view. Forests dark and
tant mountain sides. A citj' is dwarfed
into the compass of a single block;
watercourses are mere threads of silver
laid in graceful curves upon the green
velvet mantle of the endless plains.
The red granite rocks beneath our feet
ere starred with tiny flowers, so minute
that they arc almost microscopic, yet
tinted with the most delicate and tender
colors. The majesty of greatness and
the mystery of minuteness are here
brought face to face. It is in vain that
one strives to describe the scene. Only
those who have beheld it can realize its
grandeur and magnificence.

One of the raosttmportant investiga
tions yet undertaken by an American
railway has lately been completed by
the New York, Ontario &. Western rail
way in connection with the London &
Northwestern railway of England. It
had for an object nothing less than a
critical, experimental determination ol
the actual advantages, if any, of an
American train, made up of a few large
cars, over an English train of equal ca
pacity, but made up of a greater num
ber of smaller cars. The English test
was made in July, the results were
worked up and tabulated by the Lon
don & Northwestern engineers and
forwarded to this country to be dupli
cated as nearly as possible by the
NcwYork. Ontario & Western, which
has a division of almost exactly
the same length as that of English
road. Rut while the length was the
same, the other circumstances were
quite different The alignment of tho
English road was good and the grade?
low. while the American road abounds
in abrupt changes of heavy grades and
sharp curves, a eeneral comparison of
the results, according to the Railroad
Gazette, shows that the American loco
motive hauled a slightlv heavier train
aa higher speed on a grade of C4.S
feet a mile, with 13.9 pounds pull at
the drawbar per gross ton. while the
English locomotive exerted a pull ol
?S-7, 14.4 and I2.S pounds per gross ton
on 14.2-fuot grades at suoce-ive point;
of the line. The coal consumption ot
the American locomotive was I.s tixoea
that of the English locomotive, while
the water evaporated was as I
to 1.4, and the total traetive
work as l to 1.2. This was
what might reasonably be expected.
The inferor coal u5ed in the American
locomotive would geera;e less stejra
than the better grade used by the En

ilOODS AND MASTERY.
From Worthlustoa's Mjzazhie.
Mastery in anj- art or craft involves
control of its methods and of one's self.
The genuine artist is the man who can
discern the thing he wishes to do and
employ all the resources of his craft to
that end. The greatest and most diffi
cult of all the arts is the art of living,
and the men and women who master
this difficult art are those who compre
hend the material with which they
work and the methods by which effects
are secured, and who control them
selves. Those who are the slaves of
their prejudices, their passions or their
moods, whatever may be their knowl
edge of materials and methods of
work, are ineffective and unsuccessful.
To be the slave of one's mood is
to be mastered by conditions, instead
of mastering them. It is astonishing
how inany people form their judgments
and do their work, not in the clear
light of dispassionate intelligence, but
in the half-light of their own feelings.
A judgment which is the expression of
a mood is absolutely worthless, be
cause it does not deal with the facts.
It colors the facts, distorts them, and
combines them in an unnatural fashion.
It reads into the facts that which the
facts do not contain. And yet a large
part of the judgments of men are eith
er the expression of their moods or
are deepty tinged hy their moods.
To many of us the world is bright one
day and dark the next, simply because
of subjective conditions, the actual
landscape remaining identical from
da- to day. This is not true of the
masterful man; for the element of mas
tery is to control one's self and to see
things as they are. It is to get rid of
one's moods, or at least to hold them
m such control that they cease to
tinge the judgment. There is no ono
so difficult to deal with as the man of
moods, who is to-day all enthusiasm
and to-morrow all despair, who to-day
sees nothing but success and to-morrow
nothing failure. Iu dealing with
him one must not only take into ac
count the difficulties of the enterprise,
but also the defects of the in
dividual. To see men nnd
women as they are, and the
facts of life as they are. one must keep
the personal feeling thoroughly in con
trol, and refuse to allow the judgment
to be deflected by the irritation of tho
moment, or by a passing depression.
There is nothing bo stimulating to
others as that steadfastness which sees
things with absolute clarity of vision,
and deals with them with a calm and
persistent strength. The man who
possesses qualities introduces the ele
ment of stability in a world of change,
and represents dispassionate intel
ligence and clear-sighted judgment in
a world of moods and passing emotions.
A TALE OF TWO CAPITALS.
From the Contemporary Kevletr.
A friend of mine, recently deceased,
told me, if my memory serves me cor
rectly, that he had the following facts
from Baron Haussman himself: Ordered
by Napoleon III. to submit plans for
tho renovation of Paris, the baron was
for some time at a loss to meet the two
fold requirements, for the contemplated
improvements of the new streets had
to be at once beautiful, and so laid out
ns to be readily commanded by artil
lery. Suddenly ho bethought him of
modern Washington. He secured a
plan of that city, and this seemed on
examination so exactly to meet tho
necessities of the case that he finally
submitted it to the emperor. The re
sult was that the plan in the main was
accepted, and modern Paris was built
on the lines of modern Washington.
Thus is explained a certain similarity
which strikes every one who is familiar
with the two capitals, although ono
might naturally suppose the Ameri
can city, being the younger, to be tho
daughter, instead of the mother. But
Gen. Washington more than half a cen
tury earlier had ordered L'Enfant to
design him a plan for his seat of gov
ernment in much the same manner as
Napoleon III. had commanded Baron
Haussman. Now, L'Enfant was not
only a Frenchman, but a resident of
Versailles, and he undoubtedly derived
his inspiration from his earlier sur
roundings; conseqnently Washington
saw an enlargement of the Royal park,
with its alleys extended into avenues
and its numerous flower beds and par
terres enlarged into circles and quad
rants. Thus by a trans-oceanic leap
Baron Haussman took from the new
world what he could have secured at
his own gate
So much for a merely curious artistic
coincidence. But in light of recent de
velopments in our capital, a singular'
inquiry suggests itself namely,
whether Gen. Washington, in laying
out the city, did not have in mind the
same two-fold object that Napoleon III.
had when laying out Paais. To ba
sure, the present industrial army move
ment now bids fair to end in ridicule.
But at some later date a more desper
ate one may require to be controlled by
artillery, and then the broad avenuoa
and straight streets of the capital may
be appreciated for other than mere
aesthetic considerations, and. on the ;
contrary, serve as an additional proof
of far-sightedness on thu part of the
father of his eountrv

bmall room in the safe itself. It was
carpeted with green baize and had no
furniture, the walls being filled with
rows upon rows of drawers, each with
its own special lock and key.
" 'Here you have wealth enough to

could not repress a cry of astonishment
and rapture as Jlr. C, with apparent
carelessness, opened drawer after draw-

phires all the long array of precious
stones and all assorted according to !
size and quality. 'Would you trust rac
to take up a handful of those dia-
monds?' I had the audacity to ask. 'I
simply long to know how it feels.'
IJoth men seemed much amused, the
jeweler gratifying my request without
hesitation: and as 1 felt the heavv.
glittering things slip through my fin-
gers, 1 felt the thrill I spoke of in tho
beginning. 'You look as if you were in

The crow has fine manners. Tic al
ways has the walk and air of a lord of
the soil. One morning I put out some
fresh meat upon the snow near my
study window. Presently a crow came
and carried it off, and alighted with it
upon the ground in tho vineyard.
"While he was eating of it, another crow
came, and, alighting a few j-ards away,
slowly walked up to within :i few feet
of his fellow, and stopped. 1 expected
to see a struggle over the food, as
would have been the cae with domes
tic fowls or animals. Nothing of the
kind. Tho feeding crow stopped cut
ing, regarded the other for a moment,
made a gesture or two, and flew away.
Then the second crow went up to tha
food and proceeded to take its sharo.
Presently the first crow came back,
whon each seized a portion of the food
and flew away with it. Their mutual
respect and good-will seemed perfect.
"Whether it really was so in our human
pcnse, or whether it was simply an
illustration of the instinct of mutual
support which fems to prevail among
gregarious birds, I know not. Eirds
that are solitary in their habits, like
hawks or woodpeckers, behave quite
differently toward one another in tho
presence of their food.
The lives of wild creatures revolve
about two facts or emotions, appetite
and fear. Their keenness in discover
ing food and in discovering danger are
alike remarkable. Hut man can nearly
always outwit them, because whilo
his perceptions are not so fHarp,
his power of reflection is muen
greater. His cunning carries a
great deal further. The crow will
quickly discover anything1 that lootw
like a trap or Bnare set to catch him,
but it takes him a long tiae to tee
through the simplest contrivance. A

Experiments with vegetable-pulp
have demonstrated the feasibility of
silk-making by machinery. At no dis
tant day the silkworm will find her oc
cupation gone, and la place of the co
coon we will have enormous apools of
silk drawn directly from pulp. Vege
table fiber is made into collodion, ami
is then forced through finely perforated
metal plates. The slender threads that
issue are at once cubinerged in water.
This takes up the volatile elements of
the collodion and harduns the threads,
which bo coma clafctic and solid. Tho
filaments are so fine that it requires
nearly a dozen to makr a thread that
can be handled with safety. Hxtretno
