TIh> Center Table.
Somo ouo recently has spoken a word
in favor of the old time center table,
und it would indeed bo a good tiling
could it bo restored. The very presence
of its bright lamp, its periodicals and its
books suggests sociability and delightful
intercourse. Tho very opportunity ilof?
fers for tho drawing up of many chairs
is n silent invitation, and it so possesses
a subtle charm that is all its own. What
WO most need in our modern social life
are informal gatherings where compan?
ionship can he c-njoyed without the
preparation and tho fuss attendant upon
?u dinner or n reception. And, as tho
center table may properly bo called a
promoter of just such happy homes, it
would be well were it once more given
a place.?Philadelphia Ledgor.

Combinations nn<l Wages.
Iu what lines of industry nro tho
wages lowest und tho abuses greatest?
Is it in those -where modern methods
have- been most extensively employed,
undwhero machinery, with its attendant
concentration of power, lias mado the
most progress, or is it in those whoso
methods are survivals from an earlier
stage of industrial order?
To tills question there nun be but one
answer. Tho lowest wages, tho most un?
sanitary conditions, tho grossest abuses
and oppressions are not in be found in
factories, but in tenement house indus?
tries. It is among tho cigar makers, or
among the workers in certain branches
of the ready made clothing trade that
these matters are at their worst. Yet it
is just hero that the conditions of em?
ployment are most like those which pre?
vailed in earlier industrial periods.
The sufferers under tho sweating sys?
tem are not, sis is so often charged, the
victims of tho present industrial order.
They are tlw victims of a survival of
past labor conditions info an ago which
lias become familiar with bettor ones.?
Professor Arthur T. Hadlev in Atlantic.
Why is it that a common poet, when
ho wishes to compose a beautiful poem
on any subject, as Venice or youth, al?
ways instinctively begins, "O Venice,"
or "O youth," when it is well known
that no fine beginning in that way is
worth a cent?
It is strange, too, that when a begin?
ner at story writing wishes to make n
sad scene, ho always brings in "bitter
tears" and "breaking hearts," when it
has long been known to tho trade that
the reading public can read about bitter
tears and breaking hearts all day and
never miss a meal.?Detroit Free Press.
