Other men stopped and locked up at the same window. "What's the excitement?' they asked. When nearly a dozen more had joined them, he tnrned around and said: "Fellow up there washing a window in the fourteenth story." "What about him J" "Watch him."

It does not coins nnder the head of skilled indus tries. No particular training or educa tion u needed to become an expert win dow washer. Hence, yon will permit me to say, thero is nothing necessarily exciting or awe compelling in the spec tacle of a man in the ordinary pnrsnit of such a calling My only object in stopj'ing to watch him Was to ascertain approximately how many blamed fools would gather in the tonrsc of two or three minutes merely to see a man washing an office window.

Young Jones next appeared in Titns- i ville, Pa. This place is in the oil le- gions, and the boy thought ho could get ' employment. He had brains, industry and good health and tho sum of 15 , tents. The money was s-vm gone, but the remainder of his capital pushed him forward. Like a dutiful son, he I early wrote to his mother, but as he had not the postage the letter had to be mailed by strategy. Jones had nerve, ne saw a man going to the postoffice with a bundle of letters. The stranger i was stopped, and be consented to mail j the boy's letter. The yonth put his ! hand in his pocket as if to pull out some ' coin and then hesitated. The man evi dently divined the reason, for he said, "Never mind: I will stamp it." , At the age of 2." Jones had become an independent oil producer. He estab lished himself in Toledo in 1302. "He organized a company to manufacture oil well appliances. In the capacity of head 1 of the firm he came into contact with factory labor. He found that ablebodied men were working for less than SI a ' day. Thi? condition seemed to him wrong. He determined to do away with what he considered a species of s-lavery. How did he go about it? Simply by ap plying the golden rule-in his treatment of hfs men. Ma; or .Tones ha- dtaie -much for his emp!o ees. lie pays thejn good wages, i he makes them work bnt eight hours a day, he takes them on free excursions, and the families of the men enjoy the fun. Each Christmas for the past four years a dividend of a certain per cent of the profits has been declared to each employee. Some vacant land adjoined his factory. This the mayor transform ed into a paik. Children are allowed to play all over it. Thero arc swings and merry go round", and everything is free. Every Sunday meetings are held there. Prominent men from all over the coun try speak and take part in the discus sions. On a recent occasion Mayor Jones presided. A Christian minister, a He brew rabbi and an agno-tic all spoke from the same platform. Once the major came to the factory and discov ered a sign hanging out which read, "No Help Wanted." This was'crdcred removed, for he said: "Men who apply for work should at least have a decent reception. Majlio we can help them by kind words-, even it we have no work for them." Such a man of course attracted atten tion. Tho Republican party needed a good man to nominate for mayor. The result was a deadlock, and Jones was unexpectedly brought forward and re ceived the nomination. The campaign was picturesque. Mr. Jones wrote a song, and hi faithful wife set it to mu sic. It proved popular and doubtless helped his canvass. Mr. Jones wrote a pamphlet entitled "The Eight Hour Day In the Oilfields." Ho circulated 3o,000 copies. He waa elected. The mayor believes in kindness to all men. Sometimes be acts as a police jus tice, and if an intoxicated man is brought before him he does not believe in sending the individual to jail, bnt will generally give some good advice. He will end up by saying: "My dear man, tho.flesh is good, but the spirit is weak. Go forth and sin no more." Ho was recently making an address to a throng of workingmen who had assem bled to congratulate him upon his suc cessful re-election. The mayor, it should he remembered, was renominated on a citizens' ticket, and, although opposed by both political parties, he received a triumphant indorsement. The election occurred in the early part of April. From the platform he saw a small urchin moving through tho crowd. Tho mayor stopped his speech and, bending over, lifted the barefooted boy to a seat. He made some very touching remarks about every one having an equal chance in tins republic. , The mayor is a doer and not a hear er only. He believes in action. He leads a strenuous life. He has radical ideas, and calls himself a Christian socialist. WTILT,IAM R". BltlTTOM. NewYoriDentists Experts in Painless and Dentistry. .
