Good frietids, don't crow 1 so vfrv tight, Ther's room enough for two ; Keep in your mind that I've a right To live as well as you. Your're rich atid strong, I poor and weak, But think you I presume, When only this poor boon I ask. * A little elbow-room * 'Tis such as you, the rich aud strong, If you but have the will. Could give the wea* a lift along, And help him up the bill. | But no—you jostle, crowd and drive, You storm, you fret and fume . j Are you the only mau alive In need of elbow room ? But thus it is on life's rotiud path, Self seems the globe of all; The strong will crush the weak to death, The big devour the small. Far better be a rich man's bound— A valet, serf, or groom— Than struggle 'mid the mase around When we've no elbow room. Up heart, my boy! don't mind the shock; Up heart, and push along ! Your skin will soon grow rough with knocks, Your limb* with labor strong; And there's a hand unseen to aid, A star to light the gloom; Up heart, my boy ! nor be afraid. Strike out for elbow-room. And when you see amid the throng, A fellow-toiler slip, Just give him ae you pass along, A brave and kindly grip. Let noble deeds, though poor you be, Your path iu life illume, And with true human charity Give others elbow-room. The Habits of the Phonograph. ITS ODD PREFERENCES IN RRPRODUCIXQ SOUND—SOME OF ITS PERFORMANCES DESCRIBED. [From the Chicago Time*.] The phonograph is a queer animal. Your voice comes hack to you very much a* if it were visible and you were looking at it through the large lenses of a lorgnuttee. Am a musician it will not pass strict critical muster. In re producing the sea In it sharps each note ascending, and by the time it has icachnd the last note of the octave, where, vf course, the vibrations are much more rapid, it has violated all the musical canons. In dtscending, its tendency is to flat, but also by some curious law of compensation, by the time it gets back to the first note it is all right again. A duet, say of tenor and baritone, returns a curious jumble of shrill soprano au*d alto ; what it would accomplish with a qu&rtte we cannot imagine, but it is very evidcut that, as it now stands, it would be an unsafe basis for the construction of a counterpoint. The phonograph prefers a perfectly clear, pure tone, like a whistle or the sound of a cornet, which it will reproduce with admirable fidel ity. Probably a violiu toue, if it could be forced into the funnel 00 as to strike the diaphragm, would be absolutely re produced both in quantity and quality of tone. Its reproduction of a pure toue is best shown in the case of a whistle. Suppose that in the ordinary toues of speech, singing, laughing, and roughing have l>een indented upon the foil, then whistle over the same surface and reverse the phonograph. The speech, si.iging. laughing and coughing will reproduced Jin a confused din, while the whistle will be heard through it all, perfectly clear and distinct. The phonograph has some odd preferences, it likes what is bizarre and out of the common. It will give back imitations of animals, such as the cackling of hens, crowing of roosters lowing of cows, barking of dogs and mewing of cats, more faithfully thau it will the ordinary utterauces that makes human speech. It has not yet sucoeeded in teproducing the qualities perfectly that distinguish one voice from another, except that it indicates very clearly the distinctions of the male and female voice; but it must lie remembered that the phouograph is yet an iufant, and that the instruments now on exhibition are those which Mr. Edison's fertile genius first suggested, and only illus trated the princible o! vibration. Hit improvements are already so far ad vanced that its power is greatly in creased, and there can be no doubt that he will not only greatly intensify but will reproduoe its different qual ities, while the application of clock work to the revolutions of the cylid ders will secure a uniformity of speech, that caunot be obtained by the hand aud will thus pitch the souuds upon the natural key and retain that pitch. When that is done, inucic may b« re produced as correctly by the phono graph as the face is by ths photo graph. How « Standing Collar Won & Suit. All thiug* art. fair. «o it is generally thought, iu war, iu a horse trade, or in a law ease-. It is probably on that ba«l rule that the late President Lincoln acted when he defeated an antagonist before a jury. The anrodote is thus told .by l>r. Hateman : He was often pitted stgain*t emi* nerit lawver* during trials in the Sang- Hi-ion Couuty Circuit Court. On one occasion he was opi>osed to a very able advocate, who made a powerful, eloquent and convincing speech to the jury, and Mr. Lincoln *aw that it had been very effective on the miuds ot tin jurv. The gentlemen. moreover, wai a man who was very precise in his dre**, as well as manner and oratory. But Mr. Lincoln had been observing him, ftnd tftw a flaw in hi* usual attire. "Gentlemen of the jury.' aaid 'Old Al>e,' when he ro«e to speak, 'the gen- SEATTLE, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, THURSDAY, JULY 4, IS7S. tleoian who has just spoken has made a strong argument. He has quoted the law and the evidence.'and it is not for me to say that he is wrong. He may be correct in all that he has said. But I want you to take a good look at him. Look especially at the upper half, aud then, gentlemen, tell me if any man who comes before you with i his standing collar buttoned 'wrong end to,' with the points sticking avav out behind his ears, may not be alto gether misaken in all of bis arrange merits.* The plan was successful. Mr. Lin j coin bad broken the spell which the eloquence of his opponent had thrown over the jury.— Neic York Di*i>aUh. A Gritty Priest. Kearney the notorious agitator of Sac Francisco, who was lately the leader of the Commustic there, and who has been deposed, headed a deputation recently Jto the Roman Catholic Archbishop, who after listning to a wordy harangue, addressed Kearney as follows: "Mr. Kearny, I understand that you wish me to tuiiid my own business. Very good ; perhaps you know what my busi | ness is better than I do. But, Mr. Kearney, there is only one person who ! is at present authorized to show me how to min i my own business, and that is the Pope of Rome. Perhaps, Mr. Kearney, if you write to him he will transfer that power to you. And now let me "tell yob a little story, Mr. Kearney. I have lived here a great many years, aud I know the temper of the people of California pretty well, and a long time ago, before you had come to America, I went to bed one night leaving everything going on in the city as usual. Well. Mr. Kearney, after a comfortable night'e rest I arose and looked out of the window, and there on the street was a poor fellow hanging by his neck, dead, suspended from the lamp post. He was a poor fellow who did uot know how to mind his own business, Mr. Kearney, and that was all. You mind your business well, Mr. Kearney, and I will mind mine. (»'K>d morning.'
