THE WEEKLY GRIND.
BY THE PLAIN MAN.
A New Industry For Algiers.
The announcement that the Johnson Iron Works has purchased the former
site of the Southern Marine Works on this side of the river, and will locate its
main plant here. was received with much satisfaction by the people of Algiers.
The Johnson Company exlects to locate in the new shops in about eight weeks.
This deal p,roves that the Johnson Iron Works realize the exceptional ad
vantages offered by our district. and is only another instance of what co-opera
tion and concerted effort will accomplish. The opening of this large plant in
Algiers will mean much for the inhabitants, as employment tO hundreds of
I people will be afforded. both to present residents and also those from the city
side, who will naturally remove to Algiers in order to be nearer their work.
This influx of new labor will metan more tenants for the houses, more business
for the merchants. It will be the cause of a general boom in the town.
Algiers can accommodate many more manufacturing enterprises, and also
can offer every fac!lity for their successful operation. Its railroad transpor
tation facilit!:s are exceptional, and it has just as good harbor front as the city
Iroper. All it requires is the same kind of energy as was shown in the instant
case. The Algiers Improvement Association, through some of its members, has
pledged ius moral support to the new enterprise. The Association and the Ipo
tole of Aldiers in general are to be congratulated on this sign of renewed activ
Ity. Iloweve r, don't be satistled with just this-keep the ball rolling.
Exit Maderol What Next?
Things haplen with kaleidoscopli quickness in Mexico--and each new
event discloes some nt w form of treachery, of deviltry. Last week Felix Diaz,
released from prison, was received as the deliverer of his people. At that time
General Huerta still stood loyally by his chief-President Madero. But Huerta
could see the star of .Madero dimly fading away and that of Diaz rising. This
must not be! So lHuerta springs his coup d'etat. Madero is arrested and im
prisoned. Hluerta proclaims himself provisional president. Huerta and Felix
Diaz clasp hands and join forces. Fine! Magnificent! But what to do with
Madero? He Is in the way. Turn hintm loose-bah! Shoot him openly-holy
i, horrors, no! Ah! we have it. We will remove him from the Nation Palace to
the prison walls; we will give him the nice auto ride-he and Suarez. Right
r- there by the prison will be a few trusted soldiers-so, to prevent the accident!
The auto drives up, surrounded by guards. Presto! the trusted soldiers rush
out. It is one surprise, one deliverance! Caramba! Bing! they have been re
pulsed! Two are killed-Madero and Suarez! Ah! too bad. We will send to
El Presidente del Estados I'nidos one grand message-one explanation-we
have not the responsibility; we make grand investigaclon; we have much re
gre:. So-they are dead. The official explanation has come and been accepted.
c- Of course- who could prove otherwise? And nobody but a jingo press wants
d, When Napoleon returned from Elba to France, he was hailed with accla
mation, surrounded by the Marshalls of France and all of the magnificent
m army that was left. His home-coming was a time of rejoicing-but he came to
Id his Waterloo! Felix Diaz, released from prison, seemed for the moment to be
a- the Man on Horseback! Now his star is fading. Huerta's is in the ascend
ancy. In Mexico there is only room for one iron-handed man at the helm. Two
cannot reign.-one must go! Madero is a memory. Two are left-Huerta and
Diaz. One of these will follow Madero. Which shall it be? The Plain Man
can see the shadows gathering around Felix Diaz!
REV. MR. SLACK WRITE.S His
Ash Wednesday, 1913.
To My Friends and Parishioners of NMt. ,
Olivet Church--Greeting: a
Inasmuch as, owing to the accident tu
which has crippled and laid me up for tt
the time being, necessitating my ab- w
sence from you and preventing at- tl
tendance upon the duties of my office ea
as your rector, I am unable to speak to p
you face to face from the pulpit of our cl
common home, or in your homes, I c1
want to write to each one of you an y
individual letter, and since the theme a
in each will be the same, I am sending n
you this informal pastoral. It may be ti
longer than I had expected, but, my b
friends, please read it carefully and a
prayerfully consider the matters b
brought before you. s
It is hard for us sometimes when a
mishap or misfortune comes, to see l
God's hand in it, but believe me, my i
friends, I see God's hand in the acci- t
dent that befell me. I was enabled to e
see better than ever how true your r
heart beat, how full of sympathy our t
people of all creeds in Algiers and the 1
city are, and I take this opportunity
of thanking one and all for the courte- i
sies and kindnesses shown me and i
mine, and I pray God that when He I
has restored me to health, which I1
trust will be soon, I will be able to do
greater work for Him in my service I
with and for you.
. One of your own number, Rev. Sid
ney Lee Vail, of whom we are all
proud, by reason of his choice of ca
reer, has reminded you that we-you
and I-are just entering upon our
twelfth year as People-Parishioners
and Rector, a period exceeded only by
three clergymen at present in our
State-Revs. Bakewell, Duncan and
e- Hunter-and in our parish by the late
4b Dr. C. S. Hedges of sainted memory,
who served at Mount Olivet's altar
u- fourteen years qf acceptable service.
t, There is no need of enumerating all
K. that has been done. Let what has
been done speak for itself, and the re
a- met.brance of it spur us on to greater
y. work. Let us rather this Lent ask
ourselves wherein have we failed, and
r, how can we do better-for is not Lent
l. a time of exjmination, self-examina
tion-"taking stock' time to use a
n. common term?
In doing this, pointing out matters
o, that need attention, food for thought,
rd I want you all to feel that before put
g-. ting them before you, I have often ask.
ed myself the same questions and won
1., dered if the occasions for the pro
,r, blems that confront us are the results
. of my own shortcomings. Have I been
faithful as a pastor? as your rector?
e, have I encouraged, incited, aroused
you as I should? have I splet on the
wall while the enemy came near to
hurt God's fair city-the church? Dear
friends, it is not an easy matter to be
responsible to a Master whom you
' know is all knowing, and to feel that
you mast render account to Him for
-those He has entrusted to your keep
ing, and know that, perhaps, you have
h not been gentle with the erring ones
" or Arm as the needs might be. As lay
" members a certain sense of this re
spoasibility is yours-for you are all
"Priests unto God," sealed in your cal
baptism, annointed for service in con- TI
firmation, how mach more is it my
duty as an annointed priest of God to of a

God has prospered us much, very thi
much. We have seen our Sunday
school double in membership and at- sta
tendance, but oh, how sadly we need
teachers-and regular teachers-that tie
will be punctual and absent only for
the greatest cause. We have increas
ed our support, have taken a more
prominent place among our sister is
churches, but how few there are that Wit
contribute to the church support. Do
you? and if so, do you give as much ni
as you feel you ought, or only just so don
much so that you can say, "I con
tribute to Mt. Olivet church." Let's A
be honest with ourselves, for above
all things God demands of us that wE
be honest-which is truthful, pure,
While we have increased the num
ber of communions made-which is a Not
matter of deepest rejoicia--our at
tendance at services has steadily fall
en. Why is this? Our confirmed 3
membership has increased, but the at- bar
tendance at services is wretched. Tpe of
last Sunday in January I attended St. Mo
Marks church, our little mission here, sur
which counts 26 communicants, there box
were forty persons including children 117
present. We with 285 communicants tinm
would have counted that a large at- str
tendance at morning prayer. They tav
have a little rough frame building, no Stc
beautiful brick structure like ours, no Sei
surpliced choir. Now why is it, dear hei
friends, our attendance at the services Vii
has fallen so low? Will each one of hoi
I you take this sentence to heart this al
Lent bringing it to practice in your wa
daily life: Do
"I am but one, but I am one. hei
I cannot do everything, but I can do he
What I can do, I ought to do. an
And what I ought to do, by God's help AV
I will do." ar:
See then, dear friends, if the at. 19
I tendance at the services is not larger, Sp
if the teachers are not more, and more pi
- punctual and regular in their attention
to their most solemn duties, and our Fr
ohurdh finances placed upon a solid
I and lasting foundation-for "each one
had a will to work." "
I am sending with this an envelope
t for your Lenten offering. If each one,
each family, will do his, their part,
ithe amount asked for-$500--will sure
ly and easily be raised. Can we not
deny ourselves something this Lent, Tc
and learn self-control? Pray for me, lea
dear friends, that God will strengthen ti
me physically and spiritually, and that th
a I may be with you long before Easter, as
° when we trust to have such a service pr
as we never have had before.

PRIZE FIGHTING SPORT GETS AN

M- Monday night at the Orleans Ath
a- letic Club, Ed. Lucian, one of our local i
la comers, was fouled by Frank Conley. I

I- withstanding the fact that Lucian call
ed the referee's attention that he was
fouled and that the newspaper report- I
ers, as well as the policemen and Cor- I
poral Mahon saw the foul, the referee
made no attempt to stop the bout. It
was then that Corporal Mahon stepped
into the ring and called "Halt!" on
that kind of sport (?).
It seems that our local fighter, Ed
die Lucian, was too much for the
much-cracked-up Conley and it seems
Stheir only chance to get even with our
e local boxer, and that is to put him out
of business with a foul. There was

in- lacing, and at the time the fight was
stopped, it seemed an open question as
to which boy would land the deciding
On After Lucien was carried to his
dressing room a report was spread
in that he exhibited a slight swelling

Ich The other half of the program pro
duced a wretched scrap, Coulon refus

for the purpose of stalling through ten
rounds. This he did, much to the sa

yelled for action. lisse did all he
could to give the fans a bout, but Cou

Many Layers of Varnish Are Applied F(
to Produce a Fine Finish.
Writing from Hongkong concerning
Chinese lacquering work, Consul Gen.
eral G. E. Anderson says: i
In general the basis of all lacquering API
is a varnish obtained from the resinous
juice of the lthus vernicifera, or "uruso
no-ki." "urushi." or "varnish tree," cul
tivated in many parts of China anti Ja
pan for the purpose. This tree in many
respects resembles an ash. It grow'. tag
fifteen to eighteen feet high and can loll
be tapped after seven years. The vr- gu
nlsh is obtained by making incisions ill
the bark of the tree near its base be
fore daylight during July and August
and catching the sap. which exudes as
a mixed clear and milky product. This
sap is placed in tubs or similar vessels. l
which are set in the sun to evaporate mo
all moisture. It separates into a clear. 305
almost colorless, resinous liquid, which
rises to the top. and into a thicker.
more resinous and darker liquid masa:;.
which settles to the bottom. The qual
ities are then searated by decanting.
the top representing the tilier grades
and the bottom the lowest grades. used 1 r
for ordinary paints. "Ningpo varnish"
and similar ordinary work.
In general, the wood to be lacquered
is a soft dry pine. The surface and
corner of the article are made as
smooth as Chinese process renders it est
possible. The joints are filled with Eli
oakuim. paper pulp or strips of grass
cloth; the corners are rounded or -
smoothed; paper is pasted over the
joints or rough places, and everything
possible is done to present as smooth p
surface as possible for the varnish. Ce
The article is then coated with a prep- Tt
aration of emery powder, vermilion or
gamboge. which is allowed to dry, and -
the whole is then polished or ground
down by pumice stone, powdered sand
stone or powdered deerhorn or various
other similar substances. The prepara
tion is again applied and ground down.
The lacquer itself is then applied M
with a broad, soft brush as evenly as pl
possible and in a room from which ahl V
wind and dust and as much light as
can be dispensed with are excluded,
the idea being to apply the lacquer and
have it dry in a dark, damp place free Bi
from all possibility -f dust. er
After the varnish dries it is ground th
down or polished with powdered stone la
or deerhorn or similar substances, and of
another application is made, dried. S8
ground and polished. The process is
repeated according to the nature of the H
article and the quality of the work,
three coats representing an ordinary E
minimum and fifteen to eighteen coats B
an ordinary maximum. For solid col
I- ors this alternate varnishing and pol
l ishing constitutes the finish. Various
decorations are applied in different 3
d ways. In mother of pearl inlay work. si
for example, the mother of pearl is cut a
in the desired figures in thin shell, and t,
the pieces are placed in position on the ,

Planet 32.088 feet. The latter "deep"'
is located but forty nautical miles east
of northern Mindanao. It has long
t been known that the shore in this re- t
r- glon shelves away very rapidly. a t
