J. R. JOHNSTON,
EDWIN E. PARMENTKR,
IN A BANK "SVEATING" ROOM.
An Inquisitorial Ins Itution Which Many
Business Tien Dread.
To the major portion of the commercial
community, the bn lk "sweating" room
Is happily unknown To the prosperous
tradesman or flourish ing professional man,
whose bank book at the half yearly mak
ing up invariably shews a balance on the
right side, the dread, d chamber is more or
less of a pleasant Act on. To the harrassed
and struggling shopl neper who litis fallen
behind with his payments; to the anxious
merchant with rapic ly maturing bills; to
thitt numerous class to whom the fourth
day of the month is i constant ly recurring
terror, the bank "sweating" room is a
place of mental torture of a particularly
acute and hnmfliatii g kind.
To explain the w orking of this Nine
teenth century star chamber, but fen
words will suffice. A large proportion of
the huge profits of banking is made by
lending money at 7 i per cent, interest,
for which depositor are allowed or
perhaps 2 per cent It is an everyday
practiee to permit customers whose capital
is locked up in busin -ss to overdraw their
accounts, the amount of such overdraft
Veins; left largely, bi t by no means cut i re
ly, to the discretion of the local bunk man
ager. Let us suppose, as- frequently hapens,
that a bad season, an unfortunate specula
tion or Inability to Collect his accounts
luis upset the calculations of a bank cus
tomer. His current balance is exhausted,
his overdraft, if he , allowed one, has run
out, and his acceptances are falling due.
The crisis has arr ved. A junior bank
tlerk, armed with a letter written upon
official note paper, and with the ward
"Private" in Ug letters across the top of
the envelope, makes his appearance. The
unhappy customer i; forthwith bidden to
attend upon the mai ager.
The man who can set out upon such an
errand without a si' keoJng feeling of ap
prehension must nee Is have nerves of steel.
Upon the result of he forthcoming inter
view will depend his credit, his prestige,
his ruin or perhaps t . en his life. The first
act of many tragedies takes place a few
yards from the busy counter of a bank.
To say that the u ifortunate individual
who is ushered into the parlor feels more
like a convicted felt u than a free man is
to assert no more .ban the truth. For
half an hour or perhaps longer he has to
undergo a cross examination of the most
severe kind, and he is absolutely at the
mercy of his questioner. All the details of
his business are luid bare; the various
items of his expenditure are commented
on; his future tiabill ies must be revealed.
His ledger is overhauled, his relations with
his creditors reviewt d; his financial status
thoroughly gone int .
If he is fortunate . nough to he in a posi
tion to convince the manager that a palpa
ble margin letwee;i liabilities and assets
still exists, he is tal-en off the rack and re
spited, or, in other words, the bank con
sents to honor his i ngagements. A man
ager endowed with tact may do much to
mitigate the sting r f this most trying or
deal, but ft;w customers quit the "sweat
ing" room without pallor on their cheeks
and a deep sense of humiliation. Loudon
Unquestionably i idustry is one of the
good qualities which may ie attributed to
all the natives of China alike. No doubt
the fact that ninety nine out of every hun
dred Chinamen perpetually live "on the
ragged edge of existence" is mainly ac
countable for this virtue, but it is unques
tionably the leading characteristic which
strikes a foreigner on landing in China.
No matter whether his experience lies in
the crowded streets of such cities as Can
ton or among the village communities on
the northern plains, the same ceaseless dil
igence is observable
A belated travelei passing through the
streets of a town cannot fail to be struck
with the sounds o: labor which proceed
from behind the c osed abutters of the
workshops, and an awly riser in the coun
ery will be robbed tf all self congratula
tion by finding that the field laborer! have
completed a recognisable portion of their
day's work before h I was astir.
The emperor's da begins during a great
portion of the year before daylight, and in
every yamnn throughout the land his ex
ample is followed. Such indefatigable in
dustry would under favorable circum
stuuees produce a prosperous, well to do
people, but in Chil a the population is so
dense that it is only by this means and by
the exercise of the strictest economy that
the natives are abb to keep body and soul
together. Nothing is wasted by them, and
substances which t would be better to
throw on the dus, heap arc not (infre
quently converted into food. London
He Was An ply Revenged.
In the upper roon of a house on Sixty
seventh street one 1 right day recently sat
a fifteen -year-old b y. He had broken his
leg and was unable to go out and join his
merry comrades. lint iu his hand he held
a slungshot, and 1 e fired away at little
birds in a half hearted way.
On the sidewal ; below was another
youngster, also with a slungshot. He
looked up and si outed, "Hey, Jimmy!
Can't yer come out "
The eyes of the si -k boy filled with tears,
while the juvenile on the sidewalk pre
pared to murder a - parrow that was rest
ing on u tree.
Walkiiig briskly along on (he other side
of the street was a well dressed man wear
ing on bis head .t high silk hat. Sick
Jimmy took carefu aim and put a dent in
the side of the headgear. In the mean
time the other boy vas intent on following
the movements of the bird in the tree.
"Who did this?" tried the man, pointing
to his mutilated hi t, as he danced a wild
war dance of rage.
A sweet little fa e appeared at the win
dow, and the sick toy said sorrowfully:
"Oh, you wicked, wicked Charlie Dobbs!"
The aggrieved man came hastily across
the street and sta -ted after Charlie, who
ran for his life. Little Jimmy luughed
softly and repeated to himself:
"That wicked, vicked Dobbs boy."

Pronounced HopslMt In Saved
From a letter written by Mrs, Ada E.
Hurd, of Uroton, 8. D., we quote: "Was
taken with a bad cold, which settled on
my lungB, cough set in and finally termi
nated in consumption. Four doctors
gave me up, saying I could live but a
short time . I gave myself up to my
Savior, determined if I could not stay
with my friends on earth, I would meet
my absent ones above. My husband was
advised to get Dr King's New Discovery
for consumption, coughs and colds. I
gave it a trial, took in all, eight bottles;
it has cured me, and thank God I am now
a well and hearty woman. Trial bottles
