How to bo n Mauufauturer.
Thoro is only ono way of doing it well.
1'reoisely as it is with otlier vooations,
tho boy muat learn how. He 18 put upon
the farm to learn to be a farmer ; into
tho atore to learn to bo a merchant ; and
into tho shnp to learn" to be a mechanic.
So, to make an intelligent, thorough
rnannfaoturer, he must servo in the mill.
A faot will best present the oase.
A father was casting about to deter
mine what ocoupation his son, seventeen
ypar8 of age, should follow. Ile wanted
hia son to go to college, but the latter's
heart was set on "business."
" If I go to college, 1 shall go into busi
ness when I get through," hesaid.
" Then I do not want you should entor
college," replied his father. " The next
f our years in academy or college would be
indiapensable for you, if you wore going
to fill one of the learned professions ; but
that time is equally indispensable for you
in rnaking yourself acquainW with the
rudiments o'f your life-calling."
A cassimero mill was about going into
operation within flve minutefl' walk, and
tho father Raid within hiraself, " That.
the place for my boy to learn the busi
ness." But he said nothing to his son
about the mill, for the latter had a long
ing for a city store, in common with the
majority of inexperienced youth. Tho
rnill-owner was consulted.
"Perhaps you will Iautrh at my idea,"
began th'e father, " but I have been thjnk
ing whether my son inight not go into
your mill and learn the woolen business."
" A very sensible and practical idea for
a minister to enlertain." replied the manu
facturer in a vein of pleasantry.
" He wants to go into a store in Boston
or New York," continued the father, " but
I have discouraged him."
" No show in that line," retorted the
owner : " if I had a son the ace of yours,
I Bhould put him into that mill and let
him go from bottom to top, learning all
there is to learn. Tho woolen business is
the best business in this country to-day,
and five years spent in the mill, learning
to mauufacture, is the best investment
vour son can make. He may go into a
Boston woolen-house and work his way
up to the head in five years, but then he
will not kuow half so much about the
business as he will to spend five years in
Llin 111111 IU IGHIU Utl" flnv vvvu.
" Not many manufacturers learned the
business m that way," tne xatner sug
" Not manv : and that is the reaaon so
few of them have succeeded," the manu
facturer answered. "The case is very
plain. If your son goes into the mill,
when he h&a learned it, he is fully quali
fied to be a manufacturer, superintendent
woolen merchant. salesman, agent of
woolen company, or to fill any other place
connected with the business. You see
the nractical advantace."
" Yes. I see." the father replied ; and
his decision was already reached. Ho
haatened to lav the plan before his son,
fearing that the dirt, drudgery, and un
pleasant things incidental to mill-life, for
five years, would deter him from tho un
dertakincr. But the boy iumped at the
bait. "But do not come to a decision
too hastilv." continued his father. "VVeigh
the subject well. Think of the hardships
and trials incident to the work. You
mustdon overalls aud ' jumper,' and be
a " mill-haud " with the Irish and French
Canadians, accepting dirt, grease, bad air,
excessive heat, and what not, as a part of
the price you are to pay. You will be
obliged to eat your breakfast at six
o'clock in the morning, aud your supper
at seven o'clock in tho evening, with only
three-fourths of an hour for dinner, thus
workmg eleven hours and a quarter daily,

little f un for variety I Think it over
carefully, and see if you have a fair coru.
prehension of the self-denial, patience.
perseverance, decision, energy, and in-
dustry that will be required to fill the bill."
The boy decided lor tne mui.
" One thing more, " added the father
Mr. says that they are putting the
machinery into the mill, and you inight
learn many things about machinery, were
you to begin at once, rendering such
assistance as you are able. But I told
him that you would leave for Cottage
City to-morrow to be gone a week or ten
" I will give up that trip and go to the
mill," promptly anawered the boy.
" I arn glad to hear that," responded his
father j " not that I want to deprive you
of the pleasure trip, but your decision in-
dicatea tbat you mean business, aud that
is the sign of promise that I look for iu
bovs. If vou mean business, and then
supplement it with necessary energy, per
severance, and priuciple, you will come
out all richt."
" I will begiu at the mill to-morrow,'
repeated the son.
" Well, there is one thing more I want
to speak of," continued the father. " It
takes all sorts of peo'ple to make a world
and a mill is a little world of itself. Moro
than half of the operatives will be forejgn
ers, and possibly a mnjorityof the Arueri
oauu will be vulgar, profane, drinkinc
men. Amoug them all there will be
many scalawags, but you need not atso
ciate with them. Your business is
learn to mako cloth, not to form bad luvb
its. At the satne time you are weavino
cloth you are to weave character from the
best web there is, so that wheu you get
through you will possess good character
to put into honest oloth. To know how
to mako better cloth than you do charac
ter, is an acqulsition 1 hopo you will never
make." Pauslng a momont, the father
added, " Take this mouey, go to tho storo
and buy overalls aud jumpers, two sets."
Accordingly, on the 15th day of August,
1877, tho son arrayed himself in hia mill
nuit and eutered the cassimero college.
In four years, just tho time it would have
taken him to go through college, he went
through the mill frcshman, sophomore,
iunior. eenior and was graduated. Ho
learned eaoh part so well that he superip
tonded cach room beforo leaving it, in
ordor to put in practice what ho learned
carutng-room, spinmng-room, weave-
rooms, etc. Then ne tooK up tno an ot
designing, which is an ocoupation of it
self in the cassimero business designing
patterns making himself master of it.
Overalls and jumpers went into tho rag
bag when ho took up designing, and tho
garb of an Amorican citizen restored him
to his normai conditiou tnat is, in ap
pearanco. It usuallv follows that uoys get tuo po-
sition which they fairly earn by dint of
perscverance, and frienda riso up to en
courage and aid them. So now, this boy,
who meant uustness in wn, nas a cassi
mero mill of his own, employing lttty
hands. He is not only manufacturer, but
he is hia own superintendent, designer
and book-keeper, enough responslbility
for a young man twenty-three years of
age to bear.
jLhere is one thincr moro to be said in
favor of this way of learning a business ;
it requires such singieness ot purposo
that all useless knowledge is shut oll. I
think it was l'reaident Chadbourne who
once said, " Colleges ought to have a pro-
fessorship for the suppression 01 useiess
knowledge." In this mill-college there
was no uaoless knowledge. There was
noithor time nor opportunity for only one
thing, and that waa pressing forward
toward the mark. Uow, the young man'a
miud can take in what science, tho me
chanic arts, books and wider observation
furnish ; and the whole may con-
tribute to the success of

The carriage waiting at the station of
the Atchison, Topeka & Santa 1-e railroad
on a pleasant July evening ia to take us
to Urosa beven llanoh. wo are soon
driving over the plains, in the midst of
which rises thothriving town ot bpnnger.
The air is oool and inspiriting and the
sun is coloring the western skies with its
lingenng rays. It will light our way lor
an hour yet, and show us the grandeur of
theso deserted shores and bottoms and
headlands of a once vast inland sea. Far
away to the west and north extend the
Jaos and other chains ot tno sangre
Christo range of the Kooky Jlountains,
mnlrtnrr n rlppn
blue border to tne ngnt
green plains. Traveling at a brisk rate, j
the horses are now carrymg us over the
rolling aores of the famous Maxwell
grant, where fat cattle are feeding by
thousauda upon the ncn grass.
We follow the course ot the uannamon
Itiver till we reach its junotion with the
lled lliver. Hro the Canadien River is
formed, which flows several hundred miles
southeastward towards the Gulf. We
have come uear to the edge of one of the
plateaus along which tbe Ked Hiverruns.
Looking far off into its valley, we see a
herd of two thousand ewes moving slowly
the deepenine shadowa towarda the
white tent of the Mexican shepherd, where
on the side of a hill, they will be corraled
for the night. boon we come upon a
flock of a hundred rams that at this sea-
feed bv themselves. We enter the
the valley of the Canadien and ford the
river, stopping to dnnK ot a suipnur
spnng which bubbies up oesme tne
stream, and, mounting the bank, we find
ourselves at our friend's mansion.
AVe are surprised to see a new house of
adobe, oovered with wood on the outside,
as nicely finished and furnished from the
stone cellar to the roof as a gentleman's
country seat on Long Island. Five or six
mstruments, from a valuable upnght
piano to a violin and music box, with
players belonging to the ranch, will lur
nish music for the evening. A lawn
thickly covered with sof t grass stretchea
in front of the handsome house.
the river, a mile distant, riso the abrupt
sides of three lofty mesas that extend
from twenty to sixty miles eastward to
the hoiizon line. These high, level plains
are covered with a grass for cattle. The
river flows on for miles, and descends into
canons a thousand feet deep within the
limits of this ranch. Its steep banks form
an impassable boundary for cattle on ono
side, while they are restrained by sixty
miles ot wire lence on the other side.
Fortv-five milea of telephone wire are
stretched over the land, with the stations
six or eight miles apart, connected with
the ollice of the ranch.
The houso is situated at the north-west
border of this immense landed property
that includes pasture range for heids and
flocks, twenty miles square, and the control
of 150,000 acres. Such an extent of land
cannot be taken in with the eye. As far
as sight can resch and beyond are grazing
the herds and flocks which belong to this
ranch. The proprietor ia in conbtant com
munication with every part of it by hia
telephone wire. Sending out hia ordera
to the different stationa and receiving im
mediate reporta from them, he rarely ueeds
to ride over theso broad acres to examine
into the condition of the fences or herds.
Ho talka to hia neicbbora on other stock
ranchea fifty orone hundred miles distant,
and by instant communication with the
railroad station can receive or send ordera
to New York from his far away Now

be comuiunicated from New York to
The "ranch is thus made a complete
business cstablishment. It haa a stable,
where stand twenty saddle and carriage
horses, and a beautiful white Norrnan
Rtallion, worthy of the pencil of Kosa
Bonheur, imported direotly from Frauce.
The harness and saddle room ia a curi
osity; Ilere are equipments for half a
dozen carriages aud twenty cow-boys.
Grazing near the house are one hundred
and twenty Devon bulla, receutly brought
from Kentucky, to maintain the high
grade of the 5,000 cattle whioh belong to
Tho evening waa spent in inspection of
these arrangements in doors aud out, and
in liatening togood musio from the ladies.
Then camo the luxury of a night of per
feot rest on a good bed and breathing the
pure air of these plains. Wo waked at
the breakfast call in time to seo oight
rancheros or cow-boys starling olf to u
round-up, twenty milea away. It was the
reality of many a picture of frontier life
whioh btw been given by illustrated pa
pers or dimo uovela.
i he Ieader was mounteu on a iuue sau
dlo pouy, in leathern breeohes, broad felt
sombroro, dark blue shirt, boots armed
with spurs two or three inchea long, and
a well filled cartridge belt and ivory han
dled revolvers nt his side. Around his
saddle boru was wouud a lariat, to bring
low any refraotory animal that should re
fuso to follow with the herd. A short
haudled whip with a longlasli, and a rope
guiding an extra pouy behind him, com
plotod the outflt, which waa about the
same for hia companions, with rather leas
of the dashing Btyle of one long familiar
with tho rough servico.
At night these rancheros will return,
driving two hundred cattlo which will bu
taken into tho corral, drlven through a
shutc, brandod with a -- 7 on thoir right
and loft sides, and then kurned loose, tho
rccognized property of this ranch, if found
two hundred milea away. An idea of tho
incroase of thoso herds is obtained from
the faot that 1,500 calvcs will bo thus
branded on this ranch during this season.

This visit at the ranch was regretfully
short to us. Six milos again at rapld rate

There is a growing feeling in hoalthy
communities against journals which make
it their special object to minister to a
porverted tasto by eeeking out and serv
ing up in a seductive form disgusting and
liccntious revelations. There is good
reaaon to believo that tho clean newspa
per i8 more hichlv rrized to-day than it
was four or five years ago. It is also safe
to predict that, as pcople in all ranks of
life who protect their own, at least from
contamination, becoroo conscioua of the
pernicious influence of a certaln class of
journals, called enlerpriaing, because they
are ambitious to servo up dirty scandals,
they will be careful to see that the jour
nals they permit to be read in the lamiiy
circle aro the class that never forget the
proprieties of life. Already men and
women of refinement and healthy morals
have had their attentlon called to the per
nicious influence of bad literature, and
havo mado commendable efforts to count-
eract the same by causinc sound litera
ture to be published and sold at popular
prices. These efforts are working a silent
but suro revolution. The best authors
are moro cenerally read to-dav than at
any previous date. The sicklv, sentl
mental story paper, and the wild ranger
and pirate story books. are slowly ,but
surely yielding the field to worthy olaim
ants. To the praise of the decent news-
paper, it may be said that where it bas a
place in the family, and haa been read for
years by young as well as old, it haa de-
veloped such a hoalthy tone and such dis
criminatinc taste that the life nature of
the slums haa no admirera. Fortunately,
the number of such families is increasing
in the land, and aa they increase, the jour-
nal that devotea ltselt to sicuenm r rovela
tiona of immorality will be compelled to
find its supporters solely among those
classes who practice vice and crime, .or
are ambitious to learn to follow such
ways. Printer's Circular-

The crimo of drunkenness has been con-
doned as no othor crimo of equal magni
tudo has been. A reformed man, who
had been in bondage to more than one
vice, in whom tho passion for liquor raged
with an intenaity very rarely enuaied in
wide observation that I have had of such
cases, told mo that it was enually hard
for him to resist another vice, thatof lust.
To pass the placo of a person that had
pampered to his licentiousneaa was quite
as diflicult as to pasa a dram shop. " Yet,"
said he, " I had much sympathy and char-
lty shown me in relation to my drin&ing,
and very little in relation to the other
evil." I wish to impress upon tho reador
certain truths that are of great practical
concern in thetemperancereform. There
is a held lor cbarity in referenco to every
existing evil. " The weak brother for
whom Christ died " may be the drinker,
or rumseller, or any other siunor. Javo
is to actuate all our efforta in behalf of
the fallen, and criminals of every class
aie fallen. Let it be our chief aim to
have the genuine article. Our charity, if
genuine, will be intelligent and broad;
not bhnd, and not restncted in lta exer
cise to certain particular evils. There has
been much of this blind and narrow char
ity in our dealing with the drnnkard. I
Our common language is enough to show I
this. AVe speak of the " poor inebriate."
But why restriot this tender, palliating
tone of speech to that one class V Why
not say, the poor swearer, tho poor adul-.
terer, or even tho poor thief, and so on
throush the Iist t Aro not these otbers,
quite as often aa the drunkard, under the ,
bondage of an overmastering passion I
Certainly it is often quite aa hard for j
them as for the drnnkard to break the
chains which their own guilty indulgence
has wrought. Yet we treat theae crimes
with condemnation aud loathing, with
but small admixture of that pity which
we lavish upon the drunkard. And this I
dealing with the inebriate has put a pre-:
mium upon tbe vice. We increase lntem
perance by making it so excusable. The
seller ia indeed a grosa criminal. His i
guilt can hardly be overstated. No theory
of license can be sustained by an enlight
ened Christianity. Tbe plea of a mighty
appetita bas been too mucb used in pallia-,
tion. Not one in a hundred, in beginning '
utxm the downward course, haa any such
appetite. And the youth who tarapers
with liquor with tbe full light ot modern
days before his eyea, and tbe heaviest
warnings of the nature of the practice re
iterated in his ears, shows a hardihood
even greater than that of the seller. Rev.
W. W. Dow, in Chrislian at Work.
The high license bill of the Illinoia leg-
islature, which has just become a law, ia
far from satisfactory to prohibitionists.
Perhaps it ia not the best meaaure that
could bave been secured and enforced ;
but temperance people make a great mis
take when they conteud that license is
not reatriotive. License ia one step in the
direction of prohibition ; and high license I
must, from its very nature, be restnctive. j
The new law provides that municipal
councils and town trustees shall not li
cense saloons for a Iesa sum than 2500
for whiskey and 150 for beer. Tbia dia-
crimination is also in the interesta of tem
perance. It is better, if drinking cannot
be atopped all at once, that men should i
drink wine or beer in preference to
whiskey. Furthermore we do not undei
stand that it is mandalory on municipal
councils or town trusteea to issue licensea.
There ia chance for local optiou ; the law
says that licensea shall not be issued ex
cept on payment of the sums prescribed.
It doea not, unlesa it ia misrepreaented,
say that licenses must bo issued when the
lee is tendered. Tbat tbe passago ot tbe
act bas alarmed the Chicago saloon-keep-ers
ia a sign that its restrictive force is
appreciated. We believo in pushing lor
ward temperance legislation just aa fast
as publio sentimeut advances. What
would the temperance men of Marylaud
havo achieved, if they had spent thoir en
ergy in working for a prohibition amend
ment Y Citiea liko Baltimore would de
feat it for years to come ; but local op
tion has been used with wonderful suc
cess. Twelve or thirteen couuties have
been freed altogetber of rum-shops, and a
cotdou of freo couuties will ere long be
drawn round Baltimore and fiually tho
last stronghold of intemperanco be won
Whero Does tho Siit Commcncc J
To drink deeply to be drunk is a
fiin ; this ia not denied. At what point
doea the taking of strong drink become
a ain ? Tho stato iu which the body is
when not excited by intoxicatiug drink is
its proper aud uatural state ; drunken
ness is the state furthest removed from
it. The state of drunkenness is the state ;
of sin ; at what stage does it become a
sin ? We suppoao a man porfectly sober
who has not tasted anythmg which can
intoxicate; one glaaa excitea him, and to 1
some extent disturbs the stato of sobrioty, j
and so far destroys it ; another glass ex
citea him still more; a third fires his 1
eyea, looseus hia tongue, inll.imea his pas-
sions ; a fouith iucreiiios all this ; a liftli 1
makea him foolish and partially insane; 1
a sixth makes him savage ; a seventh or
elchth makes him Btupid a senseleas, de- I
graded maaa ; hia reasou ia queuched, hia
faculties are for tho timo destroyed.
Every noble and generous and holy spirit
and principlo within him withers, and
the iiiiago of God is polluted and dtflled.
This is sin, awful sin : " For the drunk
ard shall not iuherit thekingdomof God."
But whero does sin begin ? At the first
glass, at tho first step towarda complete
intoxioatinn, or at the sixth, or seventh,
or elghlh V Is not every Btep from tho
uatural stato of tho system toward the
state of stupld intoxioation an advance
in sin, and a yielding to tho uuwearied
tempter of tho soul ? John tiright,
