Where Greatest Happiness Is Found.
In the lecture of Adam Bede at the Chautauqua Sunday, one
of his thoughts particularly impressed us.
He said that in his travels over this country and over Europe
he had carefully observed all classes and conditions of people and
that the greatest happiness was to be found among the great mid
dle class, those who had enough to live comfortably, and not
among the very rich nor among the very'poor. He also said that
this was good as no country could produce enough to have the
majority .wealthy and that most of the people of any country
could only be in comfortable circumstances.
It is not necessary that a man be a great traveler or a close
observer to be convinced of the truth of Mr. Bede's statement.
Evidences of it are everywhere.
That the greatest happiness is to be found among that class
which always constitutes the 'great majority of the population of a
country is simply another proof that we are ruled by a just and
How else would a just and loving J3od arrange things than
that the greatest happiness should be found in that condition and
in that environment in which most people must inevitably live?
And while we of the great middle class can see the justice of
this and know that it is true, we will, nevertheless, continue to
strive for wealth and power and at times vainly sigh for them
and sometimes envy those who possess them.
A good liver is necessary, if it is good to live.
The person without a sense of humor suffers many an unneces
The sentiment of that beautiful song "Home, Sweet Home"
will certainly appeal to American travelers in Europe at thisitime.
Why should a man worry, when his old sweethearts marry
other men ? They will do so much that his would be superfluous.

We noticed the report of a game of ball in one of the dailies
recently in which the Bloomer Girls were one of the teams. It
stated that there were "only four ladies" on the Bloomer Girls and
we can not understand how a paper could publish such an evident
false statement. I

OBJECTS ON THE MOON.
The Size They Must Be to Show In
Our Different Telescopes.
The Abbe Moreux, director of the
astronomical observatory of Uourges.
France, answers In Cosmos the ques
tion, "What is the smallest object visi
ble on the moon?"
First, It Is necessary to know what
is tho smallest angular magnitude that
the naked eyci can perceive, experi
ment, says the abbe, proves this to be
thirty seconds. In other words, au
object that subtends au arc of thirty
seconds Is tirst visible, to the naked
eye. Therefore on object havlug an
angular diameter of one second can be
seen when It Is uiagultied thirty times.
An arc of one second represents about
0,000 square feet at the center of the
lunar disc. Hence, a telescope that
magnifies thirty times will make vis
ible a spot 0.000 feet in diameter on
the surface of the moon.
A more powerful telescope will reveal
smaller objects. One with four Inches
aperture and a power of 300 will show
objects of 000 feet diameter. One
with a power of 55.000 diameters will
reveal details measuring about ninety
This, however is theory. It takes a
trained and practiced eve' to see fine
details through a telescope. The agita
tion of the earth's atmosphere by
winds apd currents Interferes terribly
wltb the use of very high powers In
telescopes. An enlargement of 400 di
ameters almost exceeds the practical
limit. It can be used only on perfectly
clear., still nights when the moon is
high above the horizon. This will re
veal objects 4'M feet In diameter, but
will not show any form or detail.

A 8ystem That Simplifies Matters For
the Railroad Men.
Like most ut.'iei ui. stories, that of
bundling the thoUHiiiid of pieces of
luggage that come to a great railroad
station bus a simple solution. It seems
to the layman thai there must be con
fusion when Incoming trains dump
hundreds of truuks and hand bogs Into
the bugguge rooms for distribution to
nil quarters of the city. System, which
has come to play an Important part In
all business nowadays, has made bag
gage handling a rather simple mutter
for the rullroads. it Is the use of n key
number that does the trick.
Travelers have noticed that their
check numbers run Into six figures, If
they pay attention to the figures on
their checks at all. It is the third of
these units, counting back from the
final number, that is the key to the
whole system of distribution, The ex
pressman who handles the baggage for
Its home distribution bund In to the
baggage agent his mass or collected
checks, all sorted on that basis, and
the baggage handlers hustle the stuff
out with very little delay.
I Suppose he has only a few checks
from an Incoming local train. They
may read 3S4741, 384201. SS4.r!)0, 384

trunk with a 384543 check would go to
the Buruevouipurtmeut as one number
ed 38.VS43 or 383.143 or 12543 or 087543.
The figure 5 Is the key figure, with the
result that there is never any confu
sion or trouble hi locating the baggage
desired, it would be in the compart
ment numbered 5.
This simple plan solves the mystery
as to the prompt location of a piece of
hand baggage when a passenger rolls

It Was Lincoln's Knife.
Lincoln was always ready to join in
a laugh at his own expense and used
to tell the following story with intense
enjoyment: "In the days when 1 used
to be on the circuit I was accosted in
the cars by a stranger, who said, 'Ex
cuse me. sir, but 1 have an article in
my possession which belongs to you.'
'How Is that?' I asked, considerably
astonished. The stranger took a jack
knife from his pocket. 'This knife,'
said be, 'was placed in ray bands some
years ago with the injunction that I
was to keep it until I found a man
uglier than myself. I have carried It
from that time to this. Allow me to
say, sir. that I think you are fairly en
titled to the property.' ""Everyday
Life of Abraham Lincoln."
Greatest Song Writers.
The Immortal quartet of song writ
ers are Goethe, Heine. Burns and
Beranger. Of the four Burns Is by far
the most popular. Goethe was at
heart an "Olympian" and In all things
a critic; Heine was In his deepest soul
a pessimist and cynic; Beranger, while
much more human, was a little bit
too critical, while Burns, democratic
to the core and of Immense sympathy,
threw himself Into the common human
life of the world with a whole heart
and wrote the songs that will live and
be loved while humanity endures.
