The Struggle for Employment.
New York Sun.-' 1 '' ':' ": '' ' ! .
It is curious how the most danger
ous trades are overrun by applicants
for work . The electric light ' compa
nies m-ver find 'difficulty in securing
all the linemen they . want., hr spite
of iln' fact that. Ihe dajiger of their
business have been so, thoroughly
exploited by the newspapers and by
recent events. : Workmen in the wall
paper factories frequently joke over
th tradition of their trade, that,, a
man's life is usually shortened at
lea-it ten years by his work. The
saint thing is tiue of men who han
die leather paper and whose lungs
become coated with the dust arising
from them. In certain factories the
air is laden with tiny brass filings,
which also hasten the approach of
death. But probably the most pe
culiar advertisement ever printed in
a newspaper appeared in a Connect!
cut paper recently. It was signed by
a firm of tower builders. It called
for a man to work on scaffolding,
and wound up in this manner:
"Applicants must be young and
strong and courageous. We warn all
seekers for this job that it is one of a
most dangerous nature, and that few
men continue in it more than a few
years. In fact, it is almostsure death
to the workmen who follow this
The fact that the advertisement
was withdrawn in a lew days would
indicate either that the applicants
were not frightened itway by its pre
dictions, or that they were.
Are Beautiful Women Happiest.
in my hie l nave known many
women well. Among them is a fair
majority of what the truly apprecia
tive would call happy, for which fact
I thank God, as it has helped me to
take on the whole a hopeful view of
life, as well as of human nature
Now, are these women, blessed as
many of them are with devoted hus
bands, cheerful homes, cultivated so
ciety, and leisure for the exercise of
any special talent they may possess
beautiful women? With one or two
exceptions, no Indeed, more than
a few of them are positively plain, i

from the rest I can single out but two
or three whose faces and figures con
form to any of the recognized stand

they are' honored, ' they are loved
they are deferred to. W lnle not
eliciting tho, admiration of every
passer-by they have acquired the
force, the sweetness; or originality of
their character, the appreciation of
those whose appreciation coufers

accorded to the simply beautiful as

Probably there Is nothing under
the sun Iwhlch Is the basis of so large
number of figures .of speech as
water. Its flow ocean ward is. liken
ed to the lapse of time, and the ocean
serves the poets though not very
happily as a symbol of eternity.
But it is in the familiar figures of
ordinary conversation that one hears
most, of, water.-'A poor argument
won't hold water;" a babbler is "a
eaky'ves9el;" a half drunken man
is, "half seas over;'? "fishing in
troubled, waters' is another name for
getting into . difficulty: "still water
runs deep" is a hint that your quiet
and demure person has 'more than
the 'world supposes;' Strong dislikes
aTe compared to his'Satahlc" Majesty's
antipathy to "holy, water;" if a man
is in a bad predicament he is in "hot
water;" disappointment is "a wet
blanket." wet with water, of course;
when a lover gets 'the mitten,"
'cold water is thrown on his hopes;"
the hungry man's "mouth waters;"
the strengthless are "weak as water;"
fortune has Its "tides" as well as the
sea; the muse in Tonus us that there
are "tongues In running brooks;"
sometimes it "rains" blessings; and
when an orator has exhausted his
subject and begins to be tedious, we
say he has "run dry;" news is al-
way- "afloat;" speculators are often
"VA'amped;"' many people find it
m possible to "keep their heads
above water;'' and very often in the
absence of data for conjecture we are
"all at sea."
Druggists, you should always have
a good supply of Dr. Bull's Worm

these candies for their children and

Most persons would say that the
outside light is two or three times as
strong as that within our houses.
But the ratio of difference is vastly
greater. Carefully prepared tables
show that for a view at the seashore,
comprising sea and sky mainly (with
a lens and plate of a certain speed)
and exposure of one one-tenth of f
second is sufficient. An open land
scape away from the sea would, with
the same length, the same aperture,
and the same plate, require one
third of a second. A fairly lighter
interior would require two and a half
minutes, while a badly lighted inter
lor, such as rooms which most ladies
prefer to occupy, would require half
an hour to obtain an equally good
picture. In other words, patients
strolling on the seashore in susnv
weather are in a light not two or
three times, but eighteen thousand
times stronger than that in the ordi
nary shaded and curtained rooms of
a city house; and the same patients
walking along the sunny side of a
street are receiving more than five
thousand times as much of the
neaitn-giving influence oi light as
they would receive indoors in the
usually heavy curtained rooms.

Hie man who looks upon every
body and everything with contempt
if such a man there be is, doubt
less, in a very comfortable frame of
mind. The worst of it is, that
though he may think himself a dem
igog, he is 'Incontestable' an arrant
fool. r, ,' '
To despise anything, except vie
and palpable loiiy, is not only un
wise, but presumptuous. Those who
cannot relish a jest profess contempt
for facetiousness. ' But that does not
prove that humor is' contemptible
On the other hand, it shows that the
parties who sneer lack a very agreea
ble faculty.- Your hard utilitarian
condemns poetry, perhaps; but that
does not detract from the merit of
Milton and Shakesphere; it only in
dicates that the scoffing gradgrlnci
has no imagination.
Addison thought that naturalists
were little , better than dolts, and
hence we are made aware that, not
withstanding his pure i'.ngush and
fine talent as an essayest, there was
at least one weak spot in his compo
The fact is that contempt, in a ma
jority of cases, springs from Igno
ranee. There are few objects that
we can afford to despise, for the
meanest things on earth have lessons
for the greatest, if they will stoop to

For any living thing, hath faculties
Which he hath never netl, and thought

! What Can I Do?
A hundred thousand girls in1 dif
ferent parts of the Union are now
asking themselves nnd alL their
friends what they shall do for a llv-
ng. The answer is easy. Do that
which jou like best and can do bes,t.
In every sensible, intelligent girl's
soul there is an intuition that one
certain Kind ot work is what she can ;
do best, and will call out all the en- j
thusiasm f her soul. The' occupa
tion may be a humble one in the
world's eyes. No matter. It is your
work. It is wrong and wicked for
parents to force either girls or boys
into occupations that are distasteful
to them. Many a starving sixteenth
rate musician would have made a
first-class cook. So choose your own
occupation, and then .work up to the
highest in it. Do not stop till you
reach the highest. A genius is. one
who never gives up. Every boy and
girl has high and dazzling dreams of
the future. The strong and the per
severing realize those dreams in one
shape or another, perhaps not always
as they first expected,but in a nobler,
better way often. So, girls, find your
ideal work, for yourselves, and then
do it joyfully and in the ideal way.
Make your dreams realities.

Pity Tis, 'Tis
More than two-thirds of our sick
folks are treated by ignorant and un
skillful physicians, and were it not
for the wonderful recuperative power
of nature, a much larger proportion
would be burred prematurely into
the grave on account of erroneous
treatment. People are mostly them
selves to blame. They are a lout:
time getting sick but demand im
mediate relief. So for dyspepsia and
indigestion the doctor prescribes a
cathartic pill, for an acidulated
stomach some alkali, for pain some
hot liniment, for sleeplessness some
narcotic, for skin diseases some ex
ternal ointment, and so might erro
neous treatment be enumerated to
greater length, but enough it is to
show the doctor aims to give quick
temporary relief without hope or ex
pectation of any permanent good.
Now nine times out of ten dyspepsia,
weak stomac, aches, pains,' sleep
lessness, nervousness, skin diseases,
etc., owe their origin to a state of de
fective circulation and blood Impuri
ty, and the use of that scientific
remedy invented by the eminent Dr.
John Dull, of Louisville, Ky., would
effect a permanent cure. It is called
Dr. Hull's Sarsaparilla. Demand it
of you druggist. Take no other!
