'V- I The Anicricau Workman. Tbo thing moot to be desired is that tho working classos shall bo so alert, kctiv; and ngjjrossive in pursuing Ihoir economic iutorosts, that the full pros sir o o( that competition which is es sential to the best conduct of trade and production may bo appliod to them stondily and unremittingly, without any tlungor of their sua taiuing injury there from. This certainly was the enso in tho enily days of tho republic; this was tho case, without (juulilicution, nut )1 a ro cent date, so great was tho nobility of tho laboring population, so high thoir intelligence, so frugal thoir habits, so enterprising, alert and industrially am bitious was tho rising generation, 10 wido the margin of living aflordod by tho favorablo conditions of a now coun try, so relutivcly weak, then, was capl tul. If this bus now ceased to bo the case, it is not duo mainly either to the fuller settlement of the country or to the large accumulation of capitul dur ing the past tweuty-livi) year, but to tho introduction of vast numbers of persons not born on our soil or bred under our laws, having lower standards of work and lower sociul ambit ions, with less, at onco. of general inlolli ireneo and of technical skill, often im provident and not infreijuoutly intcm perato in their habits, generally un trained in tho responsibilities of civi lifo, and unaccuslonied to tho commu nication of thought upon subjects of general concern. Certuiuly, if tho chil dren and grandchildren of our popula tion of thirty years ago woro alono con cerned, it would still be true that the working classes of this country had no occasion to ask favors in production and trado, or seek to escape tho utmost prossuro of industrial competition. The workmen of those days wero abundant ly ablo to take care of themselves; and tho workmen of to-duy would bo not less so, if they all came out of that pa tient, watchful, resolute sagacious, self-mastered strain. I confess I have littlo respect for the objoction which Is ofton interposed to tho uso of tho term "working-classes." Kvory now anil then some lawyer or professor or editor informs the public that ho works twolvo or fifteen hours a day himself; that lie is just as much a working-man as any carponter or cotton-spinner; that wo are all working men together; and that the uso of this term, in application to a section of the community, is both etymologically wrong and economically misleading. Indeed. I know one highly intelligent gentleman who sincerely believes that tho correction of our popular speech in this regard will nearly, if not quite, re move all our labor troubles and restore industrial pcaco. Now, 1 cannot take this view of tho expression in iiuostioii. . . . There are a fow familiar phrases whoso pur port is not lnrrjor. or smaller, or in some way dili'erent from tho logical signiiinanco of the words composing tbom. if brought together for the first time. Tho term working-classes is sullioiontly descriptive for tho use to which it is put In discussions regard ing the organization of industry and tho distributation of wealth. There aro large and important bodios of pro ducers who are clearly enough pointed out thereby, and who well enough un derstand themselves to bo meant. It is not an oll'ensive appollation, for it is self-imposed. It is not an inexact ex pression, for no one not intended by it would deem himself, or be doomed by others to bo Included. ton. Walker, in Scribncr's. He Was Finally Admitted A horso man dismounted before a lonely dugout in Missouri, and con fronting the proprietor of the place ask ed for nc'commodalions for the uight.

How to Make a Good Cistern. The surface soil Is removed to a depth of eighteen Inches to exolude frost In winter and henl In summer. Tho excavation is made In the shape of an egg with the upper-third cut off. It should bo eight to ten feel deep, and seven to tou feet In diameter. The doepcr the cistorn, tho better and cheap er it is. If tho soil is close and compact, tho cement may be laid directly upon it, and no brick-lining is required. To do this, a largo flat stone is bedded in content at the bottom, for the workman to stand upon, anil for a rest for the pump. The comont is made of water lime, one part, and clean, sharp sand, throe parts, mixod dry, first, and wotted up In small quantities as required, and can be usod before it sets hard. The comont is laid about an inch thick. When tho, bottom is covored. a layer is nut in around the wall about a foot high, and, as it sols very quickly, as soon as one strip Is laid another may bo put on above it, until the whole is completed. In digging, a shoulder of a foot in width is ma vie on the top of tho firm sub-soil eighteen inches, to rest the beams upon. This is also cov ered with cemont, and the beams aro laid on and the spaces between thorn on tho shoulder are fillod in with stone, or brick, and cement, to the upper level, upon which the floor rests. A strong floor of four inch plank, doublod, with tho joints broken, is laid upon the beams and covered with a coat ol co me nt, to excludo surface water; and this floor is then covered with earth and soddod over, or a platform is built ovor it to stand upon. A manhole should bo made in the cover, large enough for a person to go down whon it is necossary to clean out the cistorn, and this is brought up a littlo above tho platform, and fitted with a tight cover, kept locked to avoid tho dangor of children falling In.

Three teaoup fuls flour, two heaping teaspoonfuls of baking pbwdor, one tablespoonful of butter mixed well through flour, and one tenspoonful salt.

Take throe pints of sour milk, or butter milk, with one teacupful of sour cream stirred into it: two eggs, a teaspoon of soda dissolved in warm or cold water, not hot s pinch of salt; and as muoh new coarse corn meal as will make a moderately thick butter. We bake this in the lornt sheet iron bread pan. While making tbe cake we have tho pan warming with a little lump of butter Iu it, stand ing, say, on top of the tea kettle on the slove. Have a good baking lire ready. Pour the batter into the pan, and stir it from the edges, so that the melted butter will mix in well. This should bake in loss than half an hour. Everything should be hot and ready, so that supper may be served the in stant the cake is done. Cut out in chocks and lay on a hot plate, lightly. It will be crisp, and have the fine nutty flavor that belongs to any edible mads from fresh, new and untainted yellow corn meal. Swedish Rolls.

Drop it into a dozen or more tart apples pared, corod, and quartered; flavor with the juice ol a fresh lemon. Let it cook until the apple is very soft, Bnd the syrup thiok and Jelly-like, then put it awny to cool in a mould or a bowl. Whon it is cold and firm, turn it into a dish, and pour over it a soft custard. This makes palatable deseert dish. s Discipline tho Eye. A vory good way to d scipline tbe mechanical eye is to first incisure an inch with the eye, then prove it with a rule, then measure a half-inch, then an eighth, and so on, and you will soon bo able to discover at a glance the dif ference botween a twelfth and a six teenth of an inch; go to three inches, six, twelve, and so on. Some call this guessing; there is no guesswork about it It is measuring with tho eye aud mind. Acquiro the habit of criticising for ii perfections every piece of wort that you see; do everything as nearly as you can without measuring (or spoiling it), or as nearly as you can trust the eye with its present training. If you can not see things mechanically, do not blame the eye for it; it is no more to blame than tbe mouth is because we cannot read, or the fingers because we cannot write, A person may write a very good band with the eyes closed, the mind, of course, direoting the An gers. The eye is necessary, however, to detect Imperfections. Every opera tion In lifo requires a mechanically trained eye, and we should realise more than we do the great importance of properly training tbat organ.
