A SERIMON FOR TO-DAY.
Col. iRobert Ingersoll on tile
Great Struggle of Life.
Born of love and hope, of ecstacy
and pain, of agony and fear, of
tears and j-oy-dowered with the
wealth of two united hearts-held
in happy arms with lips upon life's
drifted font, blue vained and fair,
where perfect peace finds perfect
form-rocked by willing feet and
wooed to shadowy shores of sleep
by siren mother singing soft mnd
low-looking with wonder's wide
and startled eves at common
things of life and day-taught by
want and wish and contact with
the things that touch the dimpled
lash of babes-lured by light and
flame and charmed by color's won
derous robes-learning the use of
hands and feet, and by a love of
mimicry guilded to utter speach
releasing prisoned thoughts from
crabbed and curious marks on
torn and tattered leaves-puzzling
the brain with crooked numbers
and their changing tangled worth
-and so through years of alterna
ting day and night, until the cap
tive grows familier with the chfiins
and walls and limitations of life,
And the time runs on in sun and
shade, until one of all the world
is wooed and won, and all the lore
of love is taught and learned again.
Again a home is built with the fair
chamber wherein faint dreams, like
cool and shadowy vales, divide the
billowed hours of love. Again the
miracle of birth-the pain and joy,
the kiss of welcome and the cradle
song, drowning the drowsy prattle
of a babe.
And then the sense of obligation
and of wrongl-pity for those who
toil and weep, tears for the im
prisoned, the despised, love for the
generous dead, and in the heart the
rapture of a high resolve.
And then ambition, with its lust
of pelf and place and power, long
ing to put upon its breast distinc
tion's worthless badge. Then keen
cr thoughts of men, and eyes that
see behind the smiling mask of
craft-flattered no more by the
obsequious chringe of gain" and
greed-knowing the usclesness of
hoarded gold-of honor bought
from those who would charge the
usury of self-respect---of power that
only bends a coward's knees and
forces from the lips of fear the lies
of praise. Knowing at last the un
studied gesture of esteem, the rev
ercud eyes made rich with honest
thought, and holding high above
all other things-high as hope's
great throbbing star above the dark
ness of the dead-- the love of wife
and child and friend.
The locks of gray and growing
love of other days and half-remem
bered things-holding withered
hands of those who first held his,
while over dim and loving eyes
death softly presses down the lids
And so locking in marriage
vows his children's hands and cros
sing others on the breasts of peace,
with daughters' babes upon his
knees and white hair mingling with
gold, he journeys on from day to
day to the horizon where the dusk
is waiting for the night-sitting by
the cold hearth of home, as the last
embers change from red to grey,
he falls asleep within the arms of
her he worshipped and adored,
feeling upon his pallid lips love's
last and holiest kiss.
How Pilus Are Made.
In ol(lon days pins were v:'luable
articles in a lady's toilet box. They
were of gold and silver, and as
long and cumbersome as skewers.
In those days there was no ques
tion about "W\'here do all the pins
go?" because they were too valua
blie to lose. Now-a-days, when we
can buy a hundred for a cent, they
are so little valud.l that millions
are lost every day. Not so very
long ago it took twelve to fourteen
men to make a pin-that is, there
were, twelve to fourteen processes
in its manufacture, each performed
separately and by a different hand
Now a single mnachine turns out a
stream of pins at the rate of 200
The wire is prepared by drawing
it from a large coil on a revolving
drum through a hole the size ol
the pin wanted. The coil. woujn
on anoth:er drum. is then suspended
at the end of the machine.
The wire passes into the machine
through a hole and a series of iron
pegs, which keep it in place and
streighten it. A pair of pinchers.
moving back and forth, pull it
along. and thrust the end through
a hole in a small iron plate, on the
further side of which a little ham
mer beats a tattoo on the end oi
wire, and so forms the head oi
Next a knife decends and cuts
off the pin to the proper length.
The pin falls into a groove or slot.
through which the head cannot
pass. and thus suspended so that
the lower or point end is exposed
to the action of a cylindrical file,
which has both a revolving and
a lateral motion. By the time
the pin has passed this file it has a
e-motl( ltharp poiiili and is a como'"
plete pin so far as shape is con
These processes are all performed
with such rapidity that the pins
fall in a constant stream from thel
cnd of the machine.
They are next put in qulantihe
into revolving barrels, which are
turned till the uins are scoured ndi
cleaned. Next they are boiled in
an acid in which a fine powder of
tin has been put, and they emerge
t:frn this bath white and shining
with their new tin coat. They are
then dried in sawdust, againi shla
ken in barrels and dusted.
Tihe machine which sticks the
pins upon the papers on which
they cre sold is very ingenious and
eimple in its details, but too com
plicated for brief discription. The
machine crimps the paper and
hodls it. while they are brougilt up
in long rows, a whole row being
stuck at one push of a lever.

The average woman stays in the
house on pleoisant days and visits
twenty-three stores ini the afternoon
when the wind's speed has to be
taken with a lightening rod.
She will rail for twenty-five years
against the barbarous fashion of
boring the cars, and then she
will punch holes in her car lobes
with a darning needle if there is a
ghost ofa chance of getting a pair
of diamond car rings.
She will take two hours to dress
and run back into the house threg
times if she is going over to Min
nic's to spend the afternoon; and
the next day, when she has a sud
den chance to go to San Francisco,
she will pack a toothbrush and her
purse in her pocket, button her
cloak and gloves in the street car,
and be at the station three-qarters
of an hour ahead of the train.

The Egyptians of the present-
Kepts as as well as Arals-Irmi about
with bare feet. The ancient Egyp
tians, on the contrary. who are now
only to Ie seen in a dried condition
in miuseumis. posessed a very good
method of knitting stockings, as is
shown in the collection at the
l.ourve, in Paris. In the grave of
a nunnIIy lthere was found a Ipir
otf knitted stockinig, which gave
the surprisin.gcvidece, firstly, that
-h'rt stokitugs, rest!e,ling socks.
were worn lb. the ancient Egylp
tains; and secondly, tih-it the art of
iuifttic cftfitclinh:td Thl\T iiftVe1i

are knitted in a veriy clver man

nccdlh s with which the work was
..o must have L ecn a little thick
, r than we c:hou.l ch-lf or for the
saic purpose, andi the knitting is
loose and elastic. The stocking is
begun just as we make the design,
only in the simplest umnner, with
single thread; ibut in the conitii:ui
tion of the work it is not :imply
plain, but fanciful. The usual 1or
der of the stocki;g which :nreve-rt
the rollin up of the work is ,arrow,
consisting of a row of turned-up
loops; and the ciihch, the iciccly
shaped heel, which is a little dif
forent froi our Imethod, show a
c'ry skillful handl. But in the
point of the stocking there is a
characteristic dif itrence between
the Egyptian stockings and mod
Crn socks. Egyptian stockings run
out in two large tubes of equal
width, like the fingers of a glove.
This strange shape is made to suit
the sandals, which are furnished
with a strap fastened about the
middle of the sandal; and as the
strap had to be laid over the stock
inig the division is needed.
Origin of "Itiliblng Peter to Pay
This e pression arose thus: On
December 17th, 1540, the abby
church of St. Peter, Westminster,
was advanced to the dignity of :
cathedral by letters patent; but,
ten years later it was joined to the
diocese of London again, and manuy
of its estates appropriated to th,'
repairs of St. Paul's Cathedral.
One hundred years later, in 1640,
we find him in "Outlandish Prov
erbs," selected by Mr. (liorg.e Ilkr
bert, priest and poet o fclassic re
nown, the subject of one of "Wal
ton's Lives," the proverb altered
and set forth : s foll,w. : "Give not
St. Peter so much, to leave St. Paul
nothing2' This proverb is quoted
by Francis Rabelais early in the
,ixteenth century. Upon the death
of William Pitt, E:lrl of Chatham,
in 1778, each of the metropolitan
cemeteries laid claim to the honor
of buriil. The City of London
argutld that so great a statesman as
William Pitt should blie buried in
St. Paul's, whiled Parliament took
the ground that the dust of so great
a man as he should come near to
the dust of kings, and that not to
bury him in Westminster Abbey
would again be "robbing St. Peter to
pay St. Paul."
Speaking of J;lachelors.
Here is something for the bache
lors direct from the fountain-head
of authority, the W'oman's Cycle:
"All women are in league against
the bachelors-the married women
from sympathy with their unmar
ried sisters and the unmarried from
a desire to lessen the number of
spinsters. With this league against
him, offensive and defensive, the
nomnarried man may find peace in
heaven, but he can scarce hope to
find happiness on earth-this side
of marriage. However, once mnar
ried all the bachelor's troubles are
over. He is no longer the subject.
of interest or designing attention
except the attentions which proceed
"True, the bachelor becomes onr
bhi marriage, if not an object of
comnnisscration to the knowing
- ones, an object of compllarative in
difference to all women but one;
Sbut the superior love of that one
atones for all, and his added dig
nity and comnFletenlss as a man
and citizen make himn wonder how
lie previously existed as one-half
of a pair of scissors without the
f ,ther half."
