Ths Talking Dog.?The following story is told of a ventriloquist, now famous, but at the time of this incident he was so poor that he used to walk between the places where he was to appear. On one of these tours he picked up a miserable little dog, because It looked so much like he felt The story will explain what became o) the dog. The first house he came to was ar inn, and, of course, he wanted a drink He had no money, but went in anyhow to see what he could do. The proprietor said: "Well, what will you take?' He said, 'Til take e little whisky." And then, turning t< the dog, he asked, "What will yoi have?" The answer came very prompt ly, "I'll take a ham sandwich." The publican was so surprised he almost fainted. He looked at the dog foi a moment and then asked, "What die you say ?" The dog replied, "I said I't take a ham sandwich." Mine host thought it wonderful thai a dog should be able to talk, and askec who had trained him, how long it hac taken and wound up with, "How muct will you take for him?" "Oh, repliec Mr. Ventriloquist, "I wouldn't sell hizr at any price, but I am a little hard up and if you will lend me ten pounds : will leave him with you until I brlnf back the money." "All right," was th< reply. "I Just want him for a lltth while, so I can show him to some people I know around here." So everything was settled, the money paid, the dog left with the proprietor, and as the ventriloquist went oui he turned and waved his hand to th? dog and said, "Well, good-bye, Jack I'll come back soon." The dog looked at him and fcaid "You mean, despicable man, to sell m< for ten pounds, after all I've done foi you! So help me Moses, I'll nevei speak another word as long as I live.'

"I thought you were going into tin chicken business." remarked a friend "Yes, but I'm through." "What was the matter?" "Well, you have to take so manj chances. When I started I bought t hen and a dozen eggs and I asked t neighbor out there where I went, how long It took for the eggs to hatch. Sh? said: 'Three weeks if it's for chicken: and four for ducks.'

"Oh, that's all right!" replied the youth airily, relates the Boston Globe "We shall rub along well enough. You see, her pa will give us a house and garden; her uncle is going to part up with a corpulent check, and she owns a little money of her own." "And," inquired the old gent, "may I inquire what you contribute to the partnership?" The young man blushed, and the twinkle in the old man's eye grew stil! more noticeable.

The stranger, feeling: annoyed, presented the officer with the bill of fart and the latter commenced to read: "Sheep's head, neck of mutton, pig's feet." "Very good," he observed, "the description tallies. You will please com< along with us."

" 'And they told you to hold the sack while they went off and drove the snipt into it," said one of the listeners. "That's right. I stayed there blamed near all night, too. But they didn't get ahead of me, just the same. I beat 'em at their own game." "How was that?" "I kept the sack, by gum!" Stung.?"Pretty nice land around here," said the stranger, as his dusty rig stopped in front of the gate. "Certainly is," replied the eager farmer. "Finest in the state." "I reckon it is too high-priced for a poor man," sighed the stranger. "Well," replied the farmer, "it if worth every cent of $200 an acre That's the way I value it. Were you thinking of buying?"

"Well, sir," replied the waiter, who, in addition to being a waiter, was also somewhat of a philosopher, "it seems to me that the poor man is generous because he doesn't want anybody to find out that he is poor, whilst the rich man is mean to prevent people from guessing he's wealthy."

Among his school mates ( Washington was a leader both in his A studies and upon the playground. He c t left school in his sixteenth year and * [ became a surveyor. In 1753 the ^ French and Indian war broke out. The J English government sent General I Eraddock with troops to help the " ' Americana General Braddock, not being familiar with '.he Indian mode of warfare, was slain and his army 1 being thrown into confusion, would have been totally destroyed had it 8 not been for Washington. Before * congress met in May, 1775, the people ^ of. Massachusetts had fought the first ' battle of the Revolution at Concord and Lexington. Washington was made 1 commander-in-chief, and though his c wish was to decline, he felt that his 8 country was to be considered more than any personal desire, so he ac- 8 cepted the command of the American c forces. e In the year 1777-78 Washington 1 ' stationed his army at valley Forge , near Philadelphia. This winter was a terrible winter for the soldiers. They I very little clothing and scarcely any food. Many bad things were said . about Washington, but he bore them p all with a clear conscience, knowing I 1 that God would protect the innocent. x After the war he ably and faithfully 1 3 served his country as president for 8 j two terms. * 3 We are Indebted to him more than c to any other man for the liberties we 8 1 ^y today. After his death it was t said of him that he was "First in war. I i, first In peace, and frst in the hearts t i of his countrymen." ' Iva Sherrer.

A London cable to the New York 'rlbune has the following: Extraordinary revelations concernng the earnings of women workers In he great Industrial centre around Birningham have been made by the govrnment Inquiry held In connection rith the special order for the Inclusion f married women within the compulory provisions of the Insurance act. Employers themselves testified that tromen engaged at home in hook and ye carding and similar work often J o r\ Vimir while anieu uuijr mu vcuw> -w? , nany of them, even by working 54 lours a week, could not earn more han $1 a week. A representative of he Birmingham Chamber of Comnerce said that a carder of hooks and yes might reasonably expect to earn 2.25 a week If she worked the whole veek, while larger sums might be camel at carding miscellaneous goods. These, he added, were entirely unskillid workers and a child could do the vork. Indeed, many children, he said, lid assist their mothers. This testimony, which met with a lostile reception from the trade unlonsts at the inquiry, was hardly substantiated by a director of a limited ompany. who said that of the 270 wonen cutworkers employed by his firm, i 0 per cent earned under 25 cents a veek, 35 per cent earned under 50 :ents, 21 per cent under 75 cents, 13 >er cent under $1.50 and 2 per cent unler $1.75. The highest price they paid or carding was 20 cents per great rross and the lowest 10 cents per great toss. Mrs. Emma Farrington, a contractor or carding, said that the most Indusrious of the carders did not earn more han $1 weekly even If they worked 64 | lours a week, and Mrs. Scott, another mployer, said an average worker ould not earn more than two cents an lour. Other witnesses pointed out that the najorlty of the women engaged In this lass of work entered Into It with the bject of augmenting their husband's arnlng, but the general tenor of the evelatlons has created quite a sensalon In England, where there is ever a endency to cry shame when the subect of sweated labor is under notice, ut precious little is even done to remdy the evil.

' TRAINING THE YOUNG. 8 Great Problam of the Day, Says New York Divine. The Rev. Dr. David G. Wylie preached Sunday night at the Scotch Presbyterian church on this subject: "The Intellectual, Moral and Spiritual Development of Children and Young People the Greatest Problem of the Age.*' And he proved it, says a New York correspondent of the Philadelphia Ledger. Jesus Christ was'trained at home, in the school and In the church; in the human experiences; in body, mind and f spirit. In the time of Christ the home was the place where lessons were taught of obedience to authority, of love and reverence for parents, of obligation and duty to the state. In the synagogues the doctors debated great questions of philosophy, reasoned with one another about the eternal verities, and threw about the youth of that period a spiritual atmosphere which sharpened the intellect, strengthened the moral fibre, found expression in the tables of stone, in one of which man's duty to his Maker was clearly set forth and in the other his duty to bis neighbor, thus balancing, in a way, the secular and the sacred, the temporal and the eternal, and opened visions of the long road ahead of the human race at the end of the present day's journey. Such training did not hurt th master and it would not make the servants any the less Independent in their judgment, any the less responsible In their duty as good citizens, or Interfere , with the right of private judgment, or bridle any appeal to reaBon, because under His subsequent teaching the philosophy of the scribes and Pharisees was brought to confusion by this iconelast of all the ages. The rule established by Him was not the rule of the mint, anise, and cummin; but for all mankind, then and now and to the end of time, It was expresed in this simple form: "And be thinketh in his heart." There has been mucn neatea discussion about religion in the schools and colleges and other educational Institutions in this country. It is provided that the state and the church in this land shall be kept separate forever, and this is one of the wisest and best of the principles underlying our national fabric. We are at liberty to believe what we please as to any matter of religious faith, but, just the same, we are, that is to say we were, in the constructive periods of our national life a religious people; not a sectarian people, but a people whose greatest triumphs in nation building were attained when the spiritual prevailed against the material. The Ten Commandments have been translated into our Constitutions and schemes of government Our legislative assemblies are opened with prayer, our presidents and governors and other officers of law are Bworn to do their duty in the name of God. Witnesses in our courts of Jus- ( tice are sworn, generally, upon the Bible to testify truthfully upon pain of divine displeasure. Even in our most trifling affairs we appeal to the Al- i mighty. It is only when it comes to the bringing out of the spiritual side that is in every man that there is objection. No one would have, or should have, any teaching in the schools? except such as has been founded fcr this particular purpose?of doctrine, but so long as the schools shall forbid In their courses all consideration of the spiritual we shall have a lopsided system of education. God forbid ine 1 :heap contention that there should be a no education of the religious, the mor- s il and spiritual side of the human c race. 1 There would have never been any t Ilfferences of opinion on the subject < but for the unhappy efforts that have f been made at times to make all men t think alike and upon disputed ques- e Hons of doctrine and theology. A com- f mission of clergy and teachers to con- t aider the use of the Holy Scriptures 1 imong schoolboys has set forth in a j suggestive report its views upon the r subject t Starting with the proposition, which c will be generally accepted in this coun- j try. that "The Bible is the mopt im- s ^ortant book in our literature.
