Th* Hard IJfe of Mm Who Lmhor la thm AI kit It Work*. The alkali works go on all the year round, day and night. Sunday* and week day*: and tit Helen'* and Widnes are the chief neat* of the manufacture. If you have a fancy for knowing how that part of the world Urea which serves the industry that Lord Heacona field used an hia trade barometer, you will do well to gain admittance to the strange end-lurid scene where the prod igious processes are carried on. My the glow of furnaces and the wavering light of an occasional gas jet, you make out bit by bit a rough picture of uncouth buildings, gaunt frameworks of timber, ominous-look i ing lead chambers looming overhead, and a general confusion of towers, platforms, revolving and station ary furnaces, great caldrons, where the caustic glows a sullen red; threaten ing-looking tanks full of corrosive liquids, and other strange half-animate monsters which beset you as yon pick your way along narrow planks or up stairs half eaten away with acid. There are figures moving about the place, wheeling barrows up the planks, stand ing at the furnace mouth, taming the white-mass within, wielding huge ladles at the caustic pots, raking, straining and laboring in a terrific heat and glare and amid sickening fumes. A man steps back from the furnace now and again and lowers the muffler from hia mouth to gasp more freely in the chill air, and you can see his face, arms and chest shining with the sweat Figures are to be seen by day which are scarcely recognizable as men, with great goggles over their eyes and huge protuberances of flannel corded over their mouths and necks. These are the men who pack the bleaching pow der. The powder packer, his feet incased in thick wooden clogs and his legs in brown paper gaiters, steps into the chlorine chamber, shovels the bleaching powder into the cask, and paesently shuttles out again and un lashes his swathings, gasping as though at death's door. There are some fifteen thousand men in the em ploy of the United Alkali Co., Includ ing special "process men" and labor ers. The story of their daily and nightly toil is told by the faces and forms of the worn, dejected men who pass fnn in the streets, by the deaths fium respiratory diseases which carry olf the strongest men before, tlieir time, by the evidence of horrible sufferings from constant contact with the biting lime, by teeth rotted away by the salt cake fumes, by scars and sometimes blindness from caustic burning, by vitrial burns, and by the deadly nausea from the gas inhaled, and the recurring exhaustion brought on by fearfully protracted toil.?Fortnightly Review. THE BUCK-RIDER. On. ?r the Dnpfntte IloriRti of the II.n ?fim Cub Drlvrnt. The "buck-rider" is a dummy fare to whom the driver Is often obliged to re sort in order to scrape together suffi cient money to pay the proprietor. This is especially the case should he be unfortunate over his first horse. The great use of the "bock-rider" is that he enables the cabman to get his cab into the market; in other words, to get past the police constables, who keep all empty cabs from loitering at places where people are most likely to want them. Desperation makes the cabman fer tile of resourco; he picksuphi? "buck," who may be cither a man or a woman, Bnd carries him or her past the consta bles to the place where he wishes to go. A coin changcs hands, usually one ar ranged upon beforehand, and in the momentary delay of alighting and pass ing the money the cabman may secure a genuine fare and drives off trium phant. Of ?course the trick has to be done with caution, for the penalty is a heavy one if the cab driver is caught carrying a "buck." Policemen are well aware of the dodge, and ascertain points constables are stationed, whose special duty it Is to spot the professional "buck-riders." The profession is not a lucrative one. for the "buck" seldom gets more than a shilling or n gratis ride for his or her services.?Nineteenth Century. Not the Suuif. Most school-boys arc convinced that mathematics are not strictly in accord ance with common sense, but they are not always able to prove their conten tion. This has just been done for them in a mental arithmetic class. A boy was asked whether ho would rather have half an apple or eight-sixteenths. "Wouldn't make any difference." was the stolid rejoinder, "they're all the same'" At this reply another boy sniffed scornfully and was promptly turned upon by the teacher: "Well, don't you agree?" "No'm." saiil the clever youth: "I'd a good deal rather have one-half an up pie." "And why, please?" "More juice. Cut up half an apple into eight-sixteenths, nnd you'd lost half the juice doing it"?Wavcrly Mag azine. Get that old snit ol clothes that yon are almost asbomed to wear and send thom to W.

How Carl Beverley Won Pretty. Kate Raymond. LD 'Squire Ray* j montl was dead j and bnried. The wreath of white ! japonicas that ] had lain on his , Si coffin was faded, the rusty streamers of ] crepe we r.e j taken off the doorhandle, and I the world had I A got tired of can-j rassing the sad circumstances of his failure and death. And Kate Raymond was forgotten, | too, as she sat by herself in the big, sounding rooms, with her black dress, and her pale cheeks, and the unshed tears making her poor eyes heavy. People had pitied her at first, but : they took it for granted she would do "something;" at all events, it was none of their business. "Well, my dear, have you made up your mind?" said old Dr. Smith, as he came creaking into the room and sat down beside her. Kate looked up through the gather ing tears. I "Doctor. I want your advice. Tell me what 1 hod better do." "Advice, eh? Well, it isn't easy to advise, under some circumstances, child. ^ The only two places that seem at all eligible to me are >Ime. PeIlair's and the situation as companion to old Miss Beverjey. I should advise you to go to old Miss Beverley, my dear, if you can be sure of patience and self-control." "I om not the wild, impetuous girl I once was; I can be patient now, doctor." . "Well, shall I tell Miss Beverley to ex pect you?" "Yes; but doctor?" "Well?" "How many members are there in Miss Beverley'8 family?" "Only herself and a fussy old bachelor brother?ten times as old-maidish as she is herself. You may bless your stars you're not going as companion to the old man.'" Kate smiled a little absently. "There used to be a?nephew, who?" "Yes, I know?Carl Beverley; "but he went to Florida a year ago. At ten to morrow then, my dear, I will call for you." Dr. Smith creaked away in those noisy boots of his; and Kate Raymond went upstairs to pack her trunk and think. So Carl Beverley was in Florida! She had known that before, but somehow she wanted the doctor's testimony to I WANT YOUR ADVICE." make assurance doubly sure. She was glad; yes, upon the whole she was very glad. She knew she had treated the honest, loving young fellow like a selfish, heartless coquette; she knew she had half broken his fond, faithful heart with her airs, and graces, and false smiles, once upon a time. At ten o'clock precisely the next day I)r. Smith's buggy came to the door for Miss Raymond and her trunk. "Keep up a good courage, my dear," said the kind-hearted old man. "Miss Beverley is rather trying, they say, but she has a heart, aud you'll work your way down to it after awhile." Kate hoped so, but she could not help feeling a little discouraged when Dr. Smith had left her alone in the dark ened room, with a pair of green spec tacles glaring at her from one corner and a pair of blue t spectacles from the other. ^ Her first day as "companion" was ineffably wearisome. Patiently she trudged up and down stairs with Miss Beverley's gruel and the old bachelor's foot mufflers. The next day was harder still. Noth ing went right Miss Beverley seemed determined to be suited with nothing that was done for her, and the old bachelor from his corner growled a chorus to all her fault-findings. Day after day passed by very much j in the same style, and Kate Raymond j grew paler and quieter with each re volving sim. At first her proud spirit had rebelled. "I cannot endure it," she had thought. But then came the bitter remem brance tb<>+ eVto U . ik.t ft he h#d neither home nor friends to flee to! And when at the week's end Miss Preciils Beverley paid the astounding sum of two dollars into Miss Raymond's shrinking palm she felt that it had in deed been hardly earned. ?There's one good thing about yon. Miss Raymond/' said the spinster, par enthetically, as she counted out the bUs?"one quality that none of my other companions could erer suit me in; you never get out of temper. You've never once lost your patience the whole time you've been here; and yet I used to hear, a year or so ago, when my nephew Carl was at home, what a changeable, fickle, impatient little thing 'Squire Raymonds daughter was." Kate colored, and the tears started quickly to her deep brown eyes. ".No," said the old bachelor in the corner, "no, Miss Raymond never geta out of temper now!" "How old are you now?" asked Miss Beverley, searchingly. "I was twenty last month." "Humph! only twenty? Well, I sup pose you'll be getting married some day, and I shall lose my companion." But Kate gently shook her head, with out even looking up. "I shall never marry," she said. "No body cares for me now." "There, James, I told you you'd knock that vase off the window seat if you insisted on leaving it there," la mented Miss Beverley, as a sudden crash of breaking china interrupted Kate's voice. "Run, Miss Raymond, and don't let the water soak into the carpet. 1 don't see how men can be so careless." And for once the old bachelor had no word of excuse to plead for him self. "Miss Raymond," he said in a low, hurried voice, when his sister's tempo rary absence had chanced to leave them alone together half an hour or so later, "you said a little while ago that nobody cared for you. That was a mistake." Kate Raymond looked up in sur prise. "My nephew, Carl Beverley, cares for you; he has never left off caring fop you. If he thought you would never look kindly upon him again ??" But Kate shook her head. "It is too late now to say these things, and yet ?" "But it isn't too late," interrupted the old bachelor, solemnly, rising out of hisc hair, taking off the blue specta cles, behind which sparkled a pair of brilliant black eyes, removing the rusty wig from a profusion of chestnut brown curls, and spurning the wadded flannel dressing gown from him with a con temptuous motion. Kate rose to her feet with a hysteric scream. "Carl!" "Is it too late, Katie? Tell mo! This last week lias taught me how good, how gentle and how patient you have grown, and I love you better than I ever did before. Can you forgive me for the ruse practiced to learn whether I might indeed aspire once more , to your hand?" Kate Raymond said "no" at first, but she said "yes" afterward, when Carl had convinced her of the perfect propri ety of his conduct "And did your aunt know?" "It was she who insisted upon it, Kate. She wished to prove the temper she had heard was so fickle and uncer tain." And the old lady's wedding present to Miss Raymond was a diamond brooch that a queen might have worn.?Buf falo Inquirer. Golden Rule. Two men became engaged in a tight in the street. Instantly their hats went oiff and rolled in the dust. One of the men was entirely bald and the other had a thick head of hair. The bald man seized the other by the hair and began to drag him about. "Stop him!" cried a bystander. "Why should you stop him?" asked another. "He's only practicing the gold en rule." "The golden rule! What do you mean?" "Why, he's doing to the other man what he wishes to goodness the other man might be able to do to him."? Youth's Companion. Another Name.

Why keep a scrub, or as they say out West, "a pennyroyal" cow ? asked a farmer at the New York Dairy Conference. One costs no more for to keep than the other ; one yields profit ; the other loss. It should be an easy task for a man to find four cows that will make 400 pounds of but ter each a year. Of course, he will have to pay for them, but their costs will be much less in proportion than the average cow sells for. Prof. Roberts bought a cow for $40 of a nsighboring farmer that made 465 pounds in a year, but you can't coax Robert to sell her for ?200, as she is worth that sum for butter mak ing alone. Her milk was sold a while for two cents per - pound, which yielded at the rate of $160 per year. If you are going to keep but four cows, or even one. do not be satisfied with less than 400 pounds of butter each. Col. D. D.
