The Club Movement.
We are living in an age of clubs and
social institutes. Limited for long
years to tbi wealthy and idle, clubs
were looked npon as very far removed
frim the sphere of the workman.
Rrint yenra tav chunxed all this,
and now, whether founded fi.r politi
cal or purely social purpows, the work
man's clnb is a recognized institution.
This movement, of which very little
note has been tken, must have a very
grfat tfltC upon the life of toe peo
ple. Metting together astbydoin
thi s bui'dlnga night after night for
rerreative or educnt:onal tbjrtt Or
the ntWcpaper aod tie magazine ate
amongst the bwt of edu .atirs dull
wits ttiust be britfh'ened and brinht
wits rendered more brilliant. The
movement is wcrta (fruiter considers
tion ia view of the ttridee the temper
ance ngitalion is making. Kveu if it
begiantel that the closing of public
bounce is ntC' Ssaty for tbe common
good, advocates of local option tr
other legislative action relating lo the
liqnor traffic must thow that thoie
who irequfiit thoso places may
have ttitir s clal riqniremenls
supplied la another wy. We cannot
have the open air cafe, with its
music atnd gaiety, in our changeful
climate. To us the public homte x
Ul: in its stead, and aflords the En
glish workman that means of sccial
intercourse which the continental cafe
does in so muck better a way for the
German aod French woikmnn. From
the vry large number who have thus
only the bar or taproom as a common
ground of meeting has arisen ' the
grHMtfBt opposition to temperance leg
islation, and temperance advocates
might advantageoutily consider wheth
er by giving heatty aid to the forma
tion of workmen's clubs they would
not be advancing their own caua.
Anyone who has visited them must
have been delighted with the charac
ter of these institutions in general.
Particularly will this be the case if the
clubs are entirely free from political
or other patronage. Manugnd by the
members themselves, they prove what
f ood things can be done by a few reso
ute men determined to eucceod ia
their objects. In every way they must
exercise a meet healthy it fluonca on
their members. There is this further
to be said for them, that they cannot
lead to so much drinking as do public
places of resort. When a men en
ins a gin palace be is expected to
Older something, and to keep order
ing if be stays. Tnere is no such
obligation to waste money attached to
the metnberiihip of a workingmnn's
club. Every club, of course, will have
a few choice spirits who will squander
their earnings foolishly, but even they
have far leas temptation to this course
than they would have in a public
house. A rmentW published state
ment ol the Worktoamen'a Club and
Institute Union shows that there are
-at preeent all! iated to it about 312
elmlw. and a great number exist
throughout the country wbioh are not
united to it. Ut thoso which ar,
about 100 are in the metropolis alone,

Associated vtith this union are two of
the largest c'ut's in exis'eni e the
Itorongti of Hackney Club atxl the
United Rsdioti Olub, also of Hack'
ney. Thee clubs number respectively
1700 and H'lO members, and may sprve
aa an txcHioot example lor work'
ingtnen promoters of similar ineti
tntions to aim at. They contain
billiard and bagatelle tahlrs, card
and smoke rooms, fine reading rooms
well etocked with all the uttly and
weekly newspapers and migazlues
combined with acitcu'a iug library of
over 2000 volumes. The large halls
of the cluhs are used for almost
nightly entertainments. Dramatic
and miiBiral performances, political
and social lectuiea and scicntitio ad
dresses form the programmes, and
each evening the meetings ara at
tended not only by tbe memhers, but
tiv their wives, accompumsd on cer
tain suitab'e cucasioim by even their
children, for those entertainments
no charge is made, and more pleasant
pastimes could not be devised. The
question arises, How 1b all thiske
up? The revenues are deiived pai
iiotn subscriptions, partly from the
sale of refreshments. The su!s;rlp
tions vary from 0d to Is each member
per month a very low figure; but the
income is considerably augmented by
the sale of refreshments. These are
served at low prices, ofen from 25 to
40 percent, below the charges at the
puolio bou!o, and the members have
alao tbe liquors snppneti in tne conui
tion they are nceived from the
brewer or distiller. In these large
clubs tho receipts from the refresh
meet I ars and supper tables amount
to from 3000 to 0000 a yea-, on
which a giotts profit, even at the lower
prices (charged, is marie of about 30
iitr c. nt. Tnere ran bs no doubt,
joilying from all this, that wo: king
men's cubs have grat future before
them, and that they will continue to
incieS9 in number and iutltienre.
The advai t'gis ars ro many and the
dieadvantegeg to few, aa compared
with the evils only too frequently ris

hoiiars, that one wonders that our
aniens have not been more alive to
tbe r worth. I lis true that we have
tiMf.r J a great deal about bogus clubs
of lute, but that matter would not bs
a difficult one to dispose of. Those
who objected most etrongly to work

cinnati Southern div;aion extending
from Cliatlanooua to Cincinnati. there
are embiacsd ia the sytem almost
1200 milea ol rotd. 330 of which are
owned by the ciiy of Cincinnati, and
leased to the syndicate of English cap
italists owning the balance ot tbe
sjs'.em. It is alB3 true mat tne loreign
owners are desirous of disposing of
their holding, as the roid, minnged
ind pendently oi eitner oi tne east anu
we t trunk lines, has not, in the last
year and a bnlf since its completion
in Texa, paid the expected semi-an-Dtiil
dividend. The conference be
tween Mr. Garrett and the Erlacgers
resulted in a proposition to sell the
bonds of the owned road and the
transfer of the lease of the Cincinnati
division. The matter was qu te thor
oughly canvassed during Mr. Garrett's
two months' stay inLoodou and Paris.
He bas laid tba matter beloie bis
Bord?of Direct irs, and it is under-
ttood tne plan nas neen receiveu wnu
much ftvor. Tbe principil objection
thus far urged is the pretent lease of
the Oincinnati 8 lutbern, which, in ihe
opinion of the Baltimore and Ublo
directory, is too nign a rental.
If the present lease can be
abrogated or modified, to lodnce the
rental, there is no uoubt but thnt tbe
proposition will be accepted. It was
at Ibe aatne conterence mac ir. uir

Ex-Gov. K. C. McC. rnvck gave voice

Failing Health.
Ten years afro my health began to fan.
I was troubled with a dUtreaniug Congo,
Night Sweats, Weukncgg, and Nervoua
neas. I tried various remedies preacribed
by different pbygiuiana, but became so
weak tbnt I could not eo up stair with
out atopplng to reat. lly friends recon
mended me to try Aver's Sarsnparilla,
which I did, and I am now' as benlthv ana
strong a ever. Mra. E. L. Williams,
Alexandria, Minn.
I have used Ayer'a Sarsaparilla, In my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if It a
taken faithfully, that It will thoroughly
eradicate tbla terrible disease. I have also
prcacribed it as a tonic, as well as an alter
ative, and must aay that I honest I v believe
It to be the bent blood medicine ever
compounded. AV. F. Fowler, 1. D.

and Ileiiduclie up to the time 1 bopua
tnklujr Ayer'a Sarsaparilla. I was under
the cure of various physicians and tried
a great many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained more tluin tec lorary re
lief. After taking Ayer'a Sarsaparilla for
a short time, in;- he'r.dache disappeared,
and my stomach or : foruied " duties more
perfectly. To-day my healt'i 1b com
pletely restored. Mary liar ley, Spring

I have been greatly benefited by the
prompt uae of Ayer'a Sarsaparilla. It

the action of toe digestive and assimilative
orcans, and vlullzea the blood. It is,
without doubt, the most reliable blood
purifier yet discovered. n. 1). Johnson,
