CLERKS AND THEIR FAY.

crease la the Number of Distributor.
Supply and Demand.
Clerk constitute one of the most numerous
classes) of a great city's population, and their
type, manner of life, duties and temptations
make an ever interesting subject for study.
Thousands of men and women are today
penned in behind the counters of innumerable
establishments in Chicago weighing, measur
ing, answering sensible and senseless ques
tions, and cultivating habits of courteous ad
dress for their own and their employers' in'
terest and the majority of them for a pit
tance wholly disproportionate, it is said, to
the duties required and the services rendered.
The connection between clerk hire and crime
and Immorality, the responsibility of employ
ers for the hardships and slips of their em
ployes, the physical, mental and moral con
sequences of what clerks as a class have to
undergo, are thusmattersof vital Importance
to the students of social sciatica. Said a gen
tleman yesterday in reference to this phase of
SIC Sine A'T FIGURES.
"Most of what people term the abnormal
features of social development Sud their ex
planation in private motive, in the innate
desires of individual citizens; and 1 hold that
clarks themselves are primarily responsible
far what are commonly set forth as wrongs
and hardships. The wages for services are
not essentially different from the price of
commodities. Supply and demand regulate
both. An abundant supply or an unusually
strong demand means invariably a rise in
wages, and the reverse means a fall.
"Now let me give you a few facta. From
all appearances there is little or no difference
between the present decade of our history, in
respect to popular sentiment, and the decade
preceding. Hence, the facta of the one period
are approximately true for the other. From
1S70 to 18S0 the gross increase of the popula
tion of the United States was 80.06 per cent
During this same period agriculturists in
creased in almost exactly the same ratio as
the general increase Manufacturers and
miner increased in number 4'J per cent,
while proleshioutJ men and those engaged in
personal service show an increase of 53 per
cent Our farrarrs, manufacturers and
miners are practically our only wealth pro
ducers, and we find thou- average percentage
of increase to be 80. Thus we have a 53 per
cent increase of wealth distributors merely
Handling tlio products of a S6 per cent in
crease of wealth prndiKtr tor a SO per cent
general increase of population.
"These figures, I think, are very significant
"JVhat is more, they only tell half the story.
During the last decade and the present will
yield equally surprising results whan the
census of lS'JO is taken farm laborers in
creased only 15 per cent, in the face of a 30
per cent general increase, and dumestio
servants only 10 per cent, while general
clerks and copyists show a 818 per aeut in
crease, clerks in hotels and restaurants a 107
par cent Increase, waiters and porters a 230
per cent, increase, and laborers about stores
and warehouses an 613 per cent increase.
Now, from the very nature of things, what
must be the inevitable result of such a state
of affairs upon a vast number of the popula
tion of cities? Simply small wages, irregular
employment, and often privation and conse
PREFERENCE TOR CITT LITE.
"For the multitude it is proverbially true
that city life is more desirable than country
life, and it is equally true that tha work of
clerks, despite it annoyances, is less labori
ous and more agreeable than that of laborers.
Han oo, to be with the crowd and have gen
teel work hove grown to be little short of a
national evil. - That employers are often
criminally negligent of the health and wel
fare of their help is true, and this is an evil
not easy to correct, for, however bad the
conditions of a place are, competition and
necessity will bring somebody to fill it The
main point is, however, purely a business
one. When the supply of those who are
anxious to get genteel employment is to
abundant of ten far in excess of the demand
employers nond not and will not pay high
wage, and it is a question whether the cu
pidity of employers or the foolishness of em
. ployes is more to blame for existing circum
stance. "As a rule, the storekeeper finds it more to
lua interest to have three clerks at tl a day
each than two dorks at tl.50, and when
they're to be had, as they invariably are in
duet like Chicago, he will take the three
. darks, irrespective of whether they receive
undent wages to tke out a decent living.
Farther, when, as is usually the case in big
cltisa, there are number of people out of
employment, it is a question whether it is
not good public policy as well as private
Interest that a large number of clerks should
be employed at a small wage than a smaller
somber at better pay. Thus many factors
come into the consideration of every social
and economical question and moke its solu
"As I look at the matter, many if not most
of the evils experienced by clerks and people
similarly employed spring from the senseless
passion of the mosses to forsake small towns
and rural districts for the metropolitan com
munities. 'A year and a crust in Chicago is
Dexter than a lifetime and roast beef on the
sand heaps of Hammond,' seems to be the
prevailing notion. Hence, moral responsi
bility aside and Aral responsibility cuts a
mall figure in such matters Chicago em
ployers Zeel little necessity of catering to the
needs or desires of employes or of offering
high inducements In point of wages. The
whole thing practically comes to this: 'There
is the place so many hours a day, so much
pay. u you want it, take it; if you don't,
somebody will be glad to get it' Personally
x nun tee clerk s position anything but
easy, and his pay anything but adequate,
but till we have less disparity in the number!
of wealth producers and wealth distributor
matters will not be much better." Chicago
On the:i2tbday of March, 1864. In
the parlor of the Rock Island house in
this city. Mr. John N. Huntoon and Miss
Bamantha H. Glenn, both of Colona,
Henry county, were loined in the holy
bonds of wedlock by the late Alex. F.
Swander. Sr., who was then justice of
the peace, and yesterday being the silver
anniversary of that happy occasion, their
friends to the number of sixty thought it
a ntting time to surprise that worthy
coupie ana impress them with its im
portance. So at 10:30 a m. the guests
met and carried with tbem well fllltd
baskets and took possession of the rest
dence, but it ws not long ere the large
dining room was cleared and the tables
were fairly groaning with 1h very best
or everything, and every one of tbegeusts
seemed to think so too.
Then at a suitable time Mrs. Thomas
Glenn, in behalf of the guests present,
presented Mr. and Mrs. Hud toon with a
full china dinner set of dishes, a dozen
silver knifes and forks, a doten large
silver spoons, from Fred Huntoon and
wife; sugar bowl and sugar spoon. II C
Harris and wife and W A. Norria and
wife of this city; one set china pNffcs,
Mrs G W Henry and daughter. James
Hardin and wife; two dollars in silver
and many other tokens of esteem. It
was one of tho pleasantest davs that the
writer has bad the pleasure of spending.
A day long to be remembered by all
Those present from out of town were:
Mr. Jonathan Huntoon. and Mr.
Fred- Huntoon and wife, of Moline:
Mrs Tbos Glenn and daughters. Mr
G W Buck and wife. Mr G W Buck. Jr..
Mr Wo Glenn and wife, Mr Wm Stearns
and wife. Mrs James Craig, Mrs Sue R
Glenn and daughter. Mr Geo W Kincaid
and wife. Miss Abie Stearns, of Colona:
Mr O H Ruh and wife, of Dakota, be
sides a host of friends and relatives from
this City. All went home feeling happy
and wishing Mr. and Mrs. Huntoon and
their two daughters snd two sons long
uie ana prosperity . J. A. M.
Ex-Policeman William O. Rugb, of
this city, was completely caotured r.n
Monday evening by Lis frieuds at his
residence on Third avenue near Twenty-
sixth street. Of course William surren
dered gracefully and the way that the
oysters suffered was a caution. All
npent a very pleasant evening ta'king
about old times. William is a host who
has nests of friends.

A Pad 8tory.
The saddfst case that ever canie to my no
tice was in the iluuou Lunatic asvlum. A
woman was contincd there owing to insanity
induced by brutal mistreatment from and
anal desertion by her husband. After a num
ber of years she had so far recovered as to be
allowed entire liberty. Hr afternoons were
whiled away In a pal lor overlooking the asv-
lum approach. Meuntinie, bor son had be
some grown, learned of his mother's condition
and determined to see and to recover her from
that institution. Just as the win was setting
one aay sue was sitting in her favorite sea:
with her crocheting, whoa, chancing to look
up, she saw bor son m the act of entering the
nouso and but a few luet distant "Sly hus
band: tba brute:" soe cried excitedly,
dropped her knitting, seized a gun and fired
at him. The bullet crashed through the glass
ana grazea tne young man, and the shot from
the second barrel wounded him slightly. The
keeper hastened in, only in time to rescue
ber from a desperate attempt on her own life.
From that day hence the woman that had
almost Decome sane remained a raving ma
niac, eaused from the shock of seeing one

Said a woman tueotner day: "I would
rather have a man's opinion about my gowns

once in a hundred times what the material is

woman will sit up in your room and tell you

she is looking you over from head to foot.
saying to berseir that the gown cost so much.
the trimming so much and the buttons so
much. You can see that ahe thinks she
could have bought tbe gown for CO less and
have it made up in a much prettier way. If
tbe gown pleases a man he shows it in his
looks, and perhaps says something pleasant
about it Whethor he says anything or not,
if he likes it his look of approbation is more
than satisfactory, while if the gown is not
pretty or becoming he simply doesn't notice
it. That is the way of a man : he never sees
a thing that is not attractive and is quick to
appreciate one that is." Boston Gasette.
Fingers Rellevinc Forks.
The list of things that can be eaten from
the fingers is on tbalncreaso. It includes all
bread, toast, tarti and small cakes, celery
and asparagus, when served whole, as it
should be either hot or cold; lettuce, which,
must be crumpled in the fingers and dipped
in salt or sauce; olives, to which a fork
should never be put any more than a knife
should be used on a raw oyster; strawberries,
when served with the stems on, as they should
be, are touched to pulverized sugar; cheese
in all forms, except Brie or Roquefort or
Cumbefort, and fruit of all kinds, except pre
serves and melons. The latter should be
eaten with a spoon or fork. Iu the use of the
fingers greater indulgence is being shown,
and you cannot, if you are well bred, make
any very bad mistake in this direction, es
