GROWTH OF MATERIALISM.
"People Becoming Infested With
Feverish Desire to Gain Wealth,"
New York, November 12.-Mrs.
Grover Cleveland yesterday perform
ed the. ceremony of laying the corner
stone of the new building of the He
brew Technical School for Girls, now
being erected in this city. Former
President Cleveland acted as presid
ing officer of the exercises and deliv
ered an address.
In the course of his address Mr.
Cleveland said: "It is not altogether
a fanciful of pessimistic notion that
teaches many of our patriotic ana
sincere citizens to lament the growth
among us of materialism. Our peo
ple are undoubtedly becoming more
and more infected with a feverish de
sire to accumulate wealth and to suc
ceed in undertakings far removed
from philanthropic intentions.
'Thoughtful men must also regret
fully concede that even in the best
and highest civilization, movements
called charitable and benovolent are
sometimes used to cloak self-exploit
ation and purse proud vanity, or are
on foot to satisfy the whim and cap
rice of the restless rich.
"Public appropriations and private
charity are mindful of men and wo
men in poverty, sickness and distress;
orphan girls and boys are compas
sionately cared for and sheltered; but
it was an inspiration of genuine be
novolence which led to the discovery
of a different field of human endeavor
and to the establishment of an agency
for good which goes further than t(,

food and raiment and things tha'r

who are shut out from opportunity
for needed improvement and who
would otherwise listlessly wait for
the coming of an uninviting and un
promising destiny are taught re
munerative occuptions. The teach
ings and influences here bestowed
will leaven the characters of those
who in the future as wives and moth
ers will fix the quality of many or
the homes of our land, and will so
mould the thought and inclinations of
the children in these homes, so as to

Gooseberries a Paying Crop.
The gooseberry is a good seller.
It is tough, hardy and goes in most
any market. I raised two hundred
bushels last year; eighteen quarts
growing on one bush, and they
brought from ten to fourteen cents
per quart. If going to take up one
branich of small fruit culture I should
recommend gooseberries. They are
easy to pick: one woman picked 104
quarts in seven hours. For picking
I pay one cent per quart for goose
berries, while for rasberries I double
it and offer as an inducement to re
main with me for the season a quar
ter of a cent extra, which almost al
ways keeps thern.
For gooseberry worms London
purple is most efficacious. Plact
one pound in a gallon jug, pour on
two quarts of boiling water, stir and
fill with cold water. Place in a
tin corn can about inch of this mix
ture, add to it three and a half gal
Ions of water and spray for worms
of which there are two crops during
the season. When you see the first
hole eaten in a leaf apply the spray.

Currants will grow from cuttings, but
gooseberries must be laid down and
rooted. Both should be pruned
every year, the old wood being cut
out; the new is bright and should re
main. The best tin-e to prune is in
the fall. after which the bushes should
be tied up. Spraying with bordeaux
mixture will prevent rust, which
sometimes affects the gooseberry.

ian. A German firm has completed a

me great illuminating power of this in,
mi- strument may be gauged from the
fact that it is of 326,ooo,ooo candle
power. If it were possible to set the
giant upon a hill or tower 300 feet
high its rays could be easily detect
nto ed seventy or eighty miles away. In
>ple deed, it is almost impossible to tell
rful how far its rays could penetrate, as
tin- no actual demonstration has been

we an Iris shutter. It has a diameter of
ac- six feet six inches and was adopted
ar- in order to make the projestor light

ew operated in much the same way as
a shutter in modern cameras. The
P9- leaves of the shutter slide with a fix
ser ed diaphragm located in the axis of
