Pa and the Heartless Coal Barons.
We got our coal Last week. When
paw bot It they told him It would be
Twenty-flve cents a ton extry to put It
In the seller. Becoz we haven't enny
shoot and It Hast to be Carried lei from
the street across the yurd.
"That's what I call a noutrage," raw
scd when ho Got home. "I'm against
the coal barrens from this minute. Here
they go and Raise the prlcu Just when
a person Begins to need It, and then
want to charge extry to Bring it in the
house. Does the grocery boy make
you pay evtry when he brings In your
potatoes, and s?*ts them down bo hard
that tin? bag- busts tind ihey nplll all
owr.th'e kitchen lloor? No. Do..*s the
butcher mak<* you f-ay tribbewt when
he brings your sossldge In and Hangs It
over the l>ack of the chair the hlrde
girl's bo sits In at nlte? Not mutch!
The first thing you no thess BloateU
gorgons and Blud-Sucklng troglodltes
won't do a thing but mnke you pay lor
the ware and talr on their Scales while
they are waying out your fifteen hundred
pound tun. So I'm a-golng to put
the coal In the heller myself. I need the
exercize enny way, and It'll save $3."
When they had the coal all piled up In
the street, paw came home erly In the
Afternoon and Took off his Cuffs and
Got a bushel basklt.
The captun came over from next Door
nna stoou around with his nanus in his
pockets and nst paw If he didn't think
it would be Better to Try to Save the
munny some other way.
"That's the great trubble with most
people," paw Told him. "They always
think it "Would be Better to Try to Save
the munny some other way. It mite do it
they would ever think some Other way
was the rite way, but they don't. When
a purson Begins to think he'll nave up
some other Way he's lost. The only
way Is the way that's .Before you when
you think about it first. Nobuddy ever
got to be a filosofcv by thinking ho
would look around for Some other way
to.l.? fllbtfoflckli* When So-Ur.itwB forgot
t*i match the sample his Wife gave
him In the morning end she' found out
about it he din't grab the poker and
think it would be better to cwmmence
getting filosollckle some other time. He
held up the Table cloth he wore tor a
bizness suit, so wouldn't get tripped on
it, and went ahead being a fllosofer
from that mlnnlt. I'm going to put this
coal in Just for spite."
So me and little Albert got some
Shovels and filled the basket and paw'
coinmenct carrying it In. By the time
he made four trips the onnust Swot and
Some of the coal got to running down
inside of his collar, and pritty soon
when he went down the seller steps
with the basket on the Buck of. his neck
our Dawg was coming up after the oit,
and didn't seem to see paw, bccoz It was
dark there and they were In a Hurry,
enny way.
Tho captun was standing out on the
Sidewalk Smoking his pipe and telling
me and little Albert about when he list
to be a Stoker and stoked with sides of
Bacon sometimes If they qot Into a race
with another Bote, and Suddenly It
Sounded like if all the pins'Jn the Bowling
alley got nocked down at once and
two or Three of the balls went on
through the end of the Btlding.
"Grate heavens!' the Captun says,
"have you boys ennv relations rhnt'11
take care of you when you Get to be
Homeless orfunn?'
Then we ran to the seller, und down ot
the Bottum of the stares they was a
large, dark Looking pile of sumthlng.
We could tel lthat part of It wan paw
by the Groaning.
"Hey, there, Moffett," the Captun sed,
"has ennything happened?"
By that time maw Got on the seen of
trubble, too, and paw sat up among
the chunks of coal, with one lalg throo
the bottum of the basket and felt round
his face to see If ennything was gone.
After awhile he lookt at the captun and
sed:
"What was that you sed a m'nute
ago?"
"I Just wanted to no If ennything hapI
pencd," the captun told him.
i i'aw picked up 11 lump of emil and
j then In Id It down again and said:.
"No" A man only lowers himself to
argue with His Inferiors."
So the coal company sent a man nnd
wouldn't throw off ennything for what

Why He Loved Her.
London Answers: "Aro you proud of
your baking powder biscuit?" he asked.
"I should think not." she replied. "I've
tried dozens of times, but I never could
equal tho?e made by the cook.
"Has anyone ever told you that your
pie crust excels anything In that line
ever before made!"
"Nover. My pie crust la worse than
my biscuit."
"Are you an adept at preparing dainty
little desserts?"
"Oh, I've done something In that line,
of course," she answered, "but I never
would think of doing the cooking for
anyone for whom I really cared."
He gave a sigh of relief.
'Will you marry me?" he asked.
First Lino Enough.
Washington Star: "I suppose you read
my poems,' said he.
"I read the first line,' answered Miss
Cayenne. "It set me thinking so deeply
I couldn't go on. I know It by heart
?*The?un was setting In the west'"
"But that isn't the best thing in the
poem.'
"Perhaps not; but it is absorbingly
mrsterlou*. I have been anxious to
meet you and Inquire whether you ever
knew of a case where the sun cct in the

As to Powder.

do you suppose this "baby powder" is

The Second?I don't know, but I guess
It must be the kind that makes more
noise than the other.
Carving.

dinner bell that Just rang?" inquired the
man who was dining with the Carvers
for the first time.
, "Yes," replied the old friend of the
family.
"Then Where's the host going? I Just
saw him pass down the hall with his!
overcoat on.'
"That wasn't an overcoat: it was a
mackintosh. We're going to have roast
duck.*

Lighting by phosphorescence bus long
been un attractive dream. Believing
that the dream may be best materialized
through certain luminous microbes,
M. Raphael Dubois has sought for theBe
the most suitable culture bouillon,
which 'must contain water, sea salt,
phosphated and other foods, and traces
of mineral matter. After thousands of
tiinlfj he has succeeded with these liquid
bouillons in giving a room the light
of full moonlight. By this light from
millions of living organisms, print may
ho read, the time told by a watch, and a
few oppratlons may be performed for
which ordinary artificial light would be
unsuitable. -' M. Dubois expects to Increase
the Intensity of the light, thus
making It of much practical value.
Connection between the acoustics nnd
th*? piaetcn.of a i wom ham boon pointed
on!, by Prlf. Charles NussbQlum. To
obtain the bext results where softness
of timber or tone color is required, as
In concert hallo, the walls and celling
should not be covered with lime and
Band, but with u mortar of plaster of
Paris, free from annd'Jn the upper Jayerc
and carefully smoothed. The strongly,
elastic surface of this plastering Ib
specially adapted for reflecting sound
waves and giving soft timbre.
A dark lamp has, been made by M.
GePteve Le Eon for producing Invisible
radiations of great wave length. Among
the striking experiments performed
with It has been the placing near It, in
ah absolutely dark room, of a statuette
covered with sulphide of lime and also
perfectly dark. In about two minutes
the statuette becomes luminous, appearing
to emerge from the darkness.
In a new German furnace, liquid air
is poured upon peat and other low grade
fuels to aid combustiom On evaporation,
nitrogen passes off first, leaving a
gaseous mixture containing 50 per cent

The centrifugal gun. which uses no
explosive whatever is the result of many
years of experiment by pn experienced
British engineer, Mr. James Judge. A
disc at the base of the gun Is rotated
rapidly by a small electric motor, and
the shots ure thrown by centrifugal
force from the circumference of the disc
at any rate up to 3,000 per minute, and
with a rhuzzle velocity of about 2,000
feet per second. There Is no noise and
no recoil. As at present designed, the
gun is five' feet high and weighs about
600 pounds, and Is operated by two men.
protected by a light shield. Though Intended
specially for service on electric
any equipped warships, It can be adapted
for field purposes by mounting on a
light carrluge, with the addition of oil
engine and dynamo for generating electric
current. In addition to obvious
advantages, the weapon has unlimited
vertical range and will Are around a
complete circle.
"Without tho Baltpetcr that was obtained
from caves In the southern states
during the war of 1812. It la believed that
the history of America and of the woild
would have been materially changed.
The origin of this cave saltpeter has
Just been Investigated by Mr. W. II.
Hess, who finds from numerous onlyses
that the deposits could not have come
from bat guano, as has boen supposed,
but that they have resulted from the
evaporation of percolating water charged
with nitrates from the surface soil.
Similar nitrate deposits are sometimes
noticed under ledges of rock.
The military boot of Captain Lodar,
of the Austro-Hungarlan army, is an
ordinary boot with a spiral spring In
the heel under a leather Inner sole. The
spring not only lessens Jar In walking,
but gives ventilation to the foot. In
practical tests in the nrmy, it has greatly
lessened (he fatigue of marching, and
has wholly prevented soreness of the
feet.
A singular observation of the last seven
or eight years Is that In certain
chemical reactions u minute quantity
of matter seems actually to disappear.
A late German experimenter claims to
have shown positively a diminution In
weight of about 1 part In &Q millions In
a number of reactions, such as the mixture
of ennnsr nulnhntn with wntor
The modem conquest of the earth Is
everywhere marked by the extinction of
grand old types of animal life?from
man downward. A new work by Mr.
W. L. Sclater mentions two large animals
that havo become extinct In South
Africa In recent times, and several others
that axe surely passing. The last
blan-bok was killed In 1799. It Is now
known from Ave complete wountiyl
apeclmana and several pairs of hotua
that have been preserved Jn museume.

may still have a few r?presantatlves
In Zululand, although not less
than nix wore reported killed as recently
as 1894. Of the whit# tailed gnu and
the bles-bok there wero not long ago a
few herds preserved In the Orange Colony
and the Transvaal, and naturalists
feel much anxiety concerning the effect
of the war upon these animals.
An old-time belief Is that adders when
frightened swallow their young to protect
them. Naturalists generally have
declared such a feat Impossible, nnd to
settle this point a rareful examination
of the adder's structure has been made
by Mr. Q. Lelghton. He finds no nnatomlcal
evidence against the truthfulness
of the eld assertion. To settle the
question finally, however. It remains for
some anatomist to dissect an adder that
has been seen to swallow its young.
The great trees of California, of
which not more than 500 are of remarkable
size, are ot uncertain age. Estimates

Wireless Telephoning.
Pittsburgh Dispatch: The development

by Sir TV. II. Preece In the form of

INTERNATIONAL S. s7 LESSON
Lukoxv, 1-10. October 21, 100t0.
The Lost Sheep and the Lost Coin.
These parables are spoken In answer
to the Pharisaical murmuring -against
Jesu3' familiarity with publicans and
slnuers. They set forth the Savior's acknowledge
mission, In which he and all
heaven delighted?namely, the recovery
of the lost. If a womari loses a
coin, part of her dowry, does she despise
It because it Is lost; because, mayhap,
It Is trampled In the mlrc somewhere, or
13 corroded by exposure? Not a bit ol
it! On the contrary, her heart Is set
upon recovery. She lights her handlamp
and thrusts It Into every recess,
and as a last resort she sweeps the floor
and passes the litter through her flngera.
When the coin Is found her delight
bears some proportion to the Intrinsic
value of the coin, and to the
length und arduousncss of the search.
So the apostate cons of Abraham arc
still dear to God; the publicans, too,
who unpatrlotlcally make merchandise
out of Israel's servitude and fallen
state. It 13 a sorry plight, the
dangerous predicament of the lost
sheep, which touches the faithful shepherd's
heart to pity. In a peerless passage,
Frederick AT. Robertson graphically
pictures the strong bond which
maintains between the keeper and the
tlock. In this Instance, the true riiepherd,
who is no mere hireling, sees In
Imagination his.dear lost sheep-on the
mountains, cut by stones, lacerated by
piteous bleating haunts lis very dreams.
He knows that most timid and defenceless
of domestic animals will be the easy
prey of some ravishing beast.
" Out on tho denort he hears It cry.
Sick and helpless, and ready to die."
The shepherd heart asserts Itself. Out
Into the night desolation and danger he
guvs, in one ever Knew
" How deep wero tho waters crossed.
Nor how dark was tho night that thepherd
passed through.
Ere he found his sheep that was lost."
But ths cheep Is found, and the Joy Is
proportionate to the strength of tho
shepherd's attachment, the perils of the
search, and the value of the aheep.
So each sinner and publican Is
still one of the favored llock, only astray
sind Imperiled. To scorch, And,
and restore such a one Is a Divine work
hi which angels would fain engage?In
the consummation of which they are
certainly permitted to rejoice.
Key and Analysis.
I. Attractive power of Jesus. Exemplified
in this Instance. More universal,
continuous, and Divine than that of any
other.
II. Criticism of Jesus. Ground of It
Ills friendly bearing toward the outcast.
III. Jesus' defense. Parables setting
forth the need, method and happy result
of recovering the loct.
IV. Parable of the lost sheep. Especially
significant among shepherd folks.
Dangerous plight of the lost. Emergency
requiring strenuous exertion. Joy
of recovery.
Parable of the lost coin. Jesus' effective
use of common Incidents. Loss,
search, recovery, Joy.
VI. Doctrinal bearing of these parables.
The genuineness and pltlfulness
of the lost condition. Possibility and
blessedness of recovery.
VII. Blessed Imminence of heaven.
Inhnbltants observant of human experiences.
Joyously affected by moral recoveries.
The btudy Lamp.
The primary use of these parables
should not be lost sight of. By them
Jesus Justified his kindly and familiar
bearing toward publicans and sinners
?at which the Pharisees and scribes
were so outraged. He showed the veriest
renegade of Israel a-a still the object
of Divine compassion, his restoration
possible and a thing to be earnestly
sought.
The shepherd with the sheep upon his
shoulders became ,one of the significant
Christian emblems In the earliest age
of the church. It was repeatedly carved
upon the tombs and altars and frescoed
upon the walls ot the catacombs of
Rome. It shows how the first disciples
loved and appreciated Jesus' parable.
The charm of Jesus as a Teacher is
the way he sublimates the commonest
objects, Incidents and operations. He
wove them all with consummate skill
Into the rich arras of his peerless scrmons.
Joy In heaven?that la the measure of
the sinner's, peril. Were sin a mere
episode, a passing Incident, a dilemma,
extrication from which Is easy, there
would be nothing in that to set the Joybells
of the skies a-rlnglng. It is becaiiHe
the sinner stands on the crumbling
edge of hell, on the brink of the
lake that burnetii with fire, where their
worm dleth not and their fire is not
quenched; because he stands where
there is no eye to pity, no arm to deliver.
except the eye and arm Divine;
snntched as a brand from the burning?
it Is because of that, there Is Joy in the
presence of the angels of God.
It was not merely what Jesus said,
nor the way he said It, that attracted
the people to him so phenomenally. Jt
was what Jesus was. Men recognised
in him humanity at Its best. The ideal
realised?wisdom. power, love, God In
man?a human life so In tune with the
infinite as to think his thoughts and do
his deeds. This makes Jesus universally
and permanently attractive to
those who are Intent upon obtaining for
themselves and their fellows the noblest
development possible.
