Doubtless yen j have seen (he many ways wo have | been represented a! (lie out set of this j suspension. It was paid wo earned j our money easy and plenty of it; last , | year the highest average of the min | ers in Allegany county was $550. Let i us divide the year’s earnings : dilfeient callings and see what is left for a rainy day. Very few married , men but who has from three to six in r family. Wo commence first with the i necessaries of life; hard workingmen . require beef, bacon, cheese, etc, to ’ maintain the muscular power—more , so in a mine than in the pure atmos phere, because carbonic gases is very weakening to the system. We don’t I want hotel rales. Here is what it j costs per year : i Store bill of all kinds, for lour iu i family, per month sj: lit! Oh i Lard oil lor light in the mine .... 13 on Coal oil for domestic use 3 00 Pick shapening and wedges 7 00 Two pair of mining pants 0 00 I Mining shirts and shoes 8 0(1 Oil Mask, lamp and cotton 3 00 ’ The good wife needs four calico I dresses G 00 Clothing, shoes, hats, etc 20 00 Two children at $8 per year each.. Hi 00 Newspapers and miscellaneous.... 4 on Colli clious and charily per year .. 18 ot! Adding up the above for store bille , is $482. and the rest of (he items pro $215, which added together is $047, A single man pays S2O per month for board which is equal to $240 per year. Some of the new element left the Eckhsrt camp in debt so I am inform ed. In the above items there is no mention of cooking utensils, bedding or clothing for the miner himself. When all is itemized, which must be get especially for the mine and winter Weather I think the store bill will j come down to about S2B pier month. I This is extravagant for four in family. : Shame on any one that would strive i to bring the human standard below ! the aLove figure. You sec lam SO7 | over my earnings and to go the full I capacity I would be $l5O over the 1 earnings of lad year. How does the above figures compete with a servant paid from $5,000 to SIO,OOO annually and upwards? Yet they want ns to put on mote cost with long hours to | spend two thirds of our life in the mine. The hyprcritic Slato legisla ■ tnre that gave a vole of sympathy to suffering Ireland approved of the shackles being placed on the working i class of Man land. Who is that Eckhait soemp ? Is | he an operator or an operator’s offi cial? It seems he knows the inward feeling of (he camp. lie says twelve men are ruling tide county ; it was averted six months ago that three hundred ruled this county ; later it was aeortod that eighty persona would go to work at any moment. What kind of agents or presidents have we (o listen to tttoh nonsense ? The jackal! is one of the most dangerous animals that prowls the forest and a politician or office-seeker is illustra tive of the jackall. Three thousand men, not twelve, rule this county, and any man that teaches otherwise is an enemy to the employers and a traitor to the miners. The men of Georges Creek are backed by tines hundred thousand members cf the Knights of L bor, who want nothing but justice, just what lbs Lord teaches. It is a terrible thing to belie ycur valor or riiiro disturbances between employer and employee. Mr. Editor, excuse mo for trespass- I ing on your valuable space, but facts things that cannot be doniqj. In the I year 1879 the Clearfield miners had seventy-five cents a ton for digging et*l. i'he panic of 1874 came on and up to 1870 sales was bard to be pro , i cured. Tuo alternative was cutting j in market, each competing to raise j , dividends, which they did and kept ,| up high salaries lor < fficials. We had • j to suffer reductions to keopi up their ' I salaries and declare dividends. The ■ excuse of the Clearfield companies j j was that Maryland coal was better, ! I but cheaper, and both parties could I combine to reduce our wages. Now the best tiring they can do is ; ■; to set u proper value on both coals in ! the market, as Gowen did in the an- I \ tbracite region, and that will put an j end to strikes and controversies. i i Hoping to hoar no more from the oiislard-he ul jackal la and potwcllip- j ing politicians concerning the t welve-1 , men rule, I lemain, Phogi.ess. j A.N IN DEPENDENT PAPER. FROSTBURG, Ml)., SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 15, 1882. fieri JlteiT). iroxKSTV wins. The hour hand of Philip Acre's old fashioned silver watch was pointing 1 to the figure eight ; the snug red cur -1 tains shut out the rain and darkness of the March night, and the fire crackled and snapped behind the red- hot bars of the grate in a cozy and comfor table sort of away, casting a ro?y shine into the thoughtful brown " eyes that were tracing csatles and * coronets in the brightly burning coals. “It I were only rich ?” be ponder ed to himself. “Ah if.'’ Then good -1 bye to these musty old books; good ! hyo to all the ways and means that 1 turn n man's life info wretched bond -1 ago. Wouldn't 1 revel in now books ! and delicious paintings and high stepping hor. es. Wouldn't I buy a set of jewels for Ediib—not pale pearls or sickly emeralds, but diamonds to blaze like links of fire upon her royal throat. Wouldn’t I—what nonsense I’m thinking though !" he cried sud denly to himself. "Philip Acre hold your tongue I I suppose you are a man of sense. Here you are neither rich or distinguished, while Edith Wyllis is as far above your moon struck aspirations as the queen cf night herself 1 She loves mo though— sho'H wait—and the time may one day come. If only Dr. Wyilia was net so distrustive cf a fellow. Hello! come in there, whoever you are!" . “Please, sir, the postman has just left it," “All right, Katy. Now then," bo added, as the door closed behind Ka ty's substantial figure, “let’s see what my unknown correspondent has to say. A black seal, ha? Not having any rolalians to lose, I am not alarm ed at the prognostic." He broke the seal and glanced leisurely over tbo short business-like communication within, with a face that varied from incredulous surprise to sudden gladness. "Am I dreaming?" h murmured, rubbing his eyes and shaking himself as il to secure complete possession of his senses. “No, I’m wide awake and in my right mind ; it's no delusion—no part of my weakening visions. But who would over suppose that old Thomas Mortimer, whom I haven't seen since I was a boy of sixteen, and picked him out of the river half dead from cramp and 'right, would die and leave |me all his money? Why, I’m not the shadow of a relation ; but then I I have never heard the old man had ! any kith or kin, so that.l can’t imag ine any harm in taking advantage of his oiid freak, Rich—am I really to bo rich ? Is my Alladin vision to be an actual fact ? Oh, Edith, Edith!" Ho clasped both hands over his eyes, sick and giddy with the theught that the lovely far-off star of his ador ation would be brought to him at lust by the magnet, gold. All these yours of patient waiting were to be bridged over by the strange old mi ser's bequest, and he might claim Edith now. How full of heart sunshine were the weeks that llitted over the heart of the accepted lover, brightened by Edith’s smile, made beautiful by the soft radiance of Edith's love. There was only one shadow—the almost im perceptible touch of distrust and sus picion with which stern old Dr. Wyl lis regarded his future son-in-law. Ah, he feared to trust Lis only child to the keeping of any man who had not been proved in the fiery furnace of trial. It was precisely a ~’eek before the j day set for the wedding, as the soft lights, veiled by shades of glass, were j just lighted in Dr. Wyllis’drawing room where Edith sat among her white roses and heliotrope, working on a bit cf cambric rutile and singing jto herself. She was a slender, beau tiful girl, with violet eyes, a bine veined forehead, and glossy, abundant curls, that pale gold that old painters love to portray. “I wonder if Mortimer place is so I lovely?’’ shesaid to a silver-haired lady who satopposite. “Phil is going I to lake me there when wo return Ir.om I our wedding tour ; ho says it is the ! sweetest place a poet’s fanny can de ' vise with founts.ins and shrubberies | and copses. Oh, shall we not ba hap- I py them?" j She started with a bright, sudden j blush, for oven while the words wera I yet on her lips, Philip Acre came into j th) room, his face looking troubled, yet cheerful withal. Mrs. Wyllis With ! an arch smile at her daughter, dissap pcured into the perfumed prospective of the conservatory, leaving the lovers to theraselvrs. ‘ You are looking grave, Philip," said Edith, as he bent over and kissed her cheek. “And I am feeling so, darling. I have a very uuplesant disoloseuro to make to-night—our marriage must be postponed indefinitely." “Philip—fo; what reason?” "To enable mo by diligent labor at my profession, to realize sufficient means to support you, dearest, in a manner satisfactory to your father’s expectations and my own wishes." "But, Philip, I thought—" "Yon thought mo heir to Thomas Mortimer’s wealth. So I was, Edith, a few hours since; I have relinquished all claimcs to it now. When I accept ed the bequest I was under the im pression that no living hjir existed. I learned to-day that a distant cousin —a woman—is still living, although my lawyer tells me, in ignorance of her relationship to Thomas Mortimer. Of course I shall transfer the properly immediately." "But, Philip, the will has made it legally yours." "Legally it has ; but Edith, could I reconcile it with my ideas of truth and honor to avail myself of old Mor timer’s fanciful freak at this woman's expense ? I might take tho hoarded wealth, but nhouid never inspect my snlf again could I dream of legally defrauding th,o rightful heir. Nay, dearest, I may lose fame and wealth, but I would rather die than suffer a single stain on rny honor as a Chris tian gentleman.” “You have done right, Philip,” said Edith with sparkling eyes. "Wo will wait, and hope on, happy in loving each ether more dearly than ever. But who is she ? What is her name ?" “That’sjust what I didn’t slop to inquire. I will write to my lawyer to ask these questions, and to direct that a deed of conveyance be instantly made out; and then, darling—” Ilia lips quivered a moment, yet he manfully completed the sentence: “Then I will begin tho battle of life over again.” And Edith’s loving eyes told him what she thought of his noble self abnegation—a sweet testimonial, “Humph?” said i)r. Wyllis, polish ing his eye-glasses magisterially with i a crimson handkerchief. "1 didn’t ■ suppose that young fellow had so! much stamina about him—a very honorable thing to do, Edith. I have never felt exactly sure about Phil Acre’s being vrorthy of you before—" "Papa!” "But my mind is made up now. When is he coming again ?" "Thin evening,” faltered Edith, tho violet eyes softly drooping. "Tell him, Edith, that he may have you next Wednesday, just tho same as ever. And as for law prac ticing—why, there’s time enough for that afterward. Child, don't strangle me with kieses—save them for Phil." TIo looked after his daughter with eyes that wore strangely dim. "Tried—and not found wanting,” ho murmured instinctively. * * * ♦ * * Tho perfume of orange blossoms had died away, th* glimmer pearls of and satin were hidden away in velvet caskets and traveling trunks, and Mr. and Mrs. Acre, old married people of a month's duration, were driving along in the amber glow of a glorious sunset. “Hello 1 which way is Thomas going?” said Philip, leaning from the window, as the carriage turned out of the main road. "I told him the direction to take, Phil," said Edith, with bright, spark lin g eyes. Let me havo my own way ju’tt for once. We are going to our n ew homo.” "Aro we?" said Phil, with a comi cal grimace. “It is to bo love in a cottage, 1 suppose ?" “Wait until you see, sir,” said 1 Mrs. Acre, pursing her little rosebud of a mouth ; and Philip waited dut:- : fully. “Where are we?” ha asked, in as tonishment, when the carriage drew up in front of a stately pillared por tico which seemed not to be unfa miliar to him. "Surely this is Mor timer Palace ?" I "1 shouldu’rbe surprised if it, was," ! said Hr. Wyllis, emerging frem the | doorway. ] “Walk m, my boy ; come Edith. Well, how do you like your now home ?” “Our new home!" repealed Phil. “I do not understand you, sir." "Why, I mean your little wife yonder is the sole surviving relative of Thomas Mortimer, although she never knew it until this morning. Her mother was old Mortimers cousin, but an absurd quarrel had caused a cessation of intercourse be tween the two branches of tholami'.y. I was aware of the fact all along, but I wasn’t sorry to avail myself ol the opportunity of seeing what kind of stuff you were made of, Phil Acre. : Ami now, as the deed of conveyance [ isn’t made out yet, I do not suppose | your lawyer need trouble himself about it. The heiress won’t quarrel with you, I’ll he hound." Phil Acre's cheeks flushed, and then grew pale with strong, hidden emotion, as he looked at his fair wife, standing beside him, the sunset turn ing her bright hair to coils of shining gold, and he reflected how unerringly the Land of Providence had straight ened out the tangled web ot his destiny. Out of darkness has come light. tii r new or incurs. Mr. Itnrhrr Cphohln the Striker* — Tin- Law of Lore hi Itasi tiesH—Si-lJhiliHrss of Cor porations. Mr. IHeober ws 09 years old on Saturday, the24th ult.,buthe preach ed w ith ell his old-time vigor and flu ency, in spite of the intense heat, in Plymouth Church Sunday morning. Mr. Beecher then proceeded upon tho "Duty of Riches, as suggested by tho Strikes." In tho first place, ho said, ho rightly valued riches. To dispesess one’s self of them in order to get to Heaven was not Christian but moduuval. Riches were to he used according to tho law of Love, ns all other things ate to he used, love being heroic disinterestedness. “You aro all aware,” went on the preacher, "that thousands of men Lave ceased their labors and refused to return to their ordinary vocations along the North River, and that there Las been much disturbance in business. Men who buy and sell are in slack water, and the mischief is going further and further. It is coming down to the very users of all perishable articles. You know that 1 have not always ap j proved strikes, but this seems to me | justifiable. The men had much occa ! sion for complaint. They are exer cising the right to work whero they can get the beet remuneration. On this side of the North River, the whole movement is orderly and it makes use of a moral pressure. There is some disturbance on tho Jersey side, and all this is to be deprecated. “Now, I need not dwelt upon the evils of strikes in general. They are usually transient, although severe for a time. Often they are of direct ben efit to the men concerned, for they get into better conditions of employ ment. All organizations of working men, like tho Knights of Labor, guilds, workingmen’s unions, and so forth, ate popular educators. They teach men hoy to combine and act togeth er. The true purpose of education is to teach men how to live with each other. Labor, as we find it, is most ly stupid and unthinking. Every ef fort to raise the common people by education is to he approved. If men Darn how to subordinate themselves and how to orgmize.and the methods ot political economy, by their attempts at labor unions, it is a roundabout and rude but real education of the common people. The whole human race advances by stumbling. Wis dom is only arrived at by many at temps, The ignorant and poor don't know how to get along and they must take many foolish steps. In all their efforts, our sympathy should be with the multitude, with tho poor, and not with tho strong and powerful; not with organized riches. Every gen erous man should favor the weak. Strikes occur either justly or un justly. It is noticeable that when industries are widely distributed and simple thero are almost no labor troubles. But when busines becomes enlarged and combined, when a legal . person in the corporation takes the , ( place of the individual, then tie . ! pressure of selfishness begins to be ‘ felt. It is when combined that ael ' 1 fishnees has a terrific power, and , blasts as does tho lightning’s stroke. ; I do not speak against banks and | brokers, capitalists and corporations. or railways; without them society would collapse and lie flat. To take them away would be as secsiblo as lo j take away tbo beams from a house or the bones from a body. To hold so ciety well together the law of selfish ness, however, must not have full swing and full sway. The power held by commercial organizations ! must bo held by the law of Chrialian ity and love. There are benefits from the combination of capital which we would never get in any other way. It cheapens goods. The o!d-fa hioned household loom could never compete j with a Lowell or a Lawrence. It is a 1 grand thing to make things cheaply but it must not cheapen men. If it humbles the operative, and classes him only as a beast, it wants true moral impulse and justice. If capi tal has its rights, so baa labor. It is as long as it is broad. If capital will suffer iu dictation from labor it must also net dictate. But no man owns his business entirely where it involves inhumanity or makes life heavier or more burdensome to others. Capital has no right to be unjust or inhuman. The human element must be consid ered. If you employ men you must take care of them. The strong must be the knights of the weak; the good must be missionaries to the bud. It is time that the obligations to God and humanity were preached. If you were to hear the other side, you would find much reason in the complaints of the working-men. The poor have much to justify them. They pay their taxes belter than the rich. How notorious is the disbon esty of the rich iu this matter ! He who does not pay his proportion cheats every man who helps make it up. There are hundreds of rich men who are pickpockets. They sit in the churches and are high in council', but every day tiny pick tlf pocket? of the [ oor. See their attempts avoid paying their taxes, see the de liberate and carefully considered methods of hiding property, of pass ing it out of their bands, so that they can swear that they have if not. Ai these arc concealed and indirect rob beries’. Is there not ground for some prejudice against the rich? O e ought not merely to Lot -I te fta ’ taxation, but to offer to contribute tc the welfare of the commonwealth The rich should go to be taxed, and not wait to be hunted cut. But tLr more wealth a man lias, the mete h. desires to be taxed as little as possi ble. Ho regards taxation as blood letting. This is tbo meanest form ot avnrico and selfishness; don’t you think so? Think of tho effect on the young and on the poor. Here is a man with millions, and ho only pays as much as another man with thous aade. When the i.icome tax was in vogue, men who could have bought me out twenty times only paid half as much tax as I did. Do we need a Gospol in this? "Then see how the power of com bined capital is used to affect legisla tion. Is tbo Legislature a school and pattern of honesty ? Can any meri torious schomes pass? Of the last Legislature many hard things are said ; the members are called rats at tho public granary ; the lobby is said lo be more powerful than the House. To reverence the law, one must not see it made. Men say that it is made by money, and is the creation of the rich to oppress tho poor. What is the influence on public sentiment of what are called ‘corners?’ Has any man a right, if he had the power, to eto; tho Gulf Stream? Would nol Eug land and Northern Europe have sum”- thing to say ? Could we allow my one to let out or belt up ti.o sun ? O; spread nuisance over wide tracts ol territory? Or by potent-right con trol all industries and boa despot? Ought any man to control the grain crop and raise its price 20 per cent? A few men can disturb the pricoof many things, and cause them lo dance at their will—to be the playthings ol avarice. * "Do not say that I am against riches, lam for riches in the spirit of tho Gospel, and against them in tin spirit of the devil. We ought not to complain of railroads more than ol the laws of nature, but seo bow they are built and managed, I stilt Be lieve that railroads have been built honestly, rut in this I am in tho min ority. See the transactions in the elevated railroads in Now York. They have discovered an elevated system ol finance. It is an exponent ol Christian ingenuity, or the ingeuiLy $1.50 per annum—iu advance. w hole m mbkk, m of Christians. All these things are known, until the very name of 001- poration ie tainted, and the people fool oppressed. And which one re fuses to increase the pitiful sl2 or sl4 a week of itc employees, they siy,'What a gigantic tyrant is this which buys legislatures, and now— wrings the bread out of the mouths of Un sod our children.' No class of won is so bound to be Christians as the rich ; none so bound to show char ily and consideration. There will yet be ‘times and times and half times’ iu this land. The rich say they own property and can do aa they please ; no man can teach them. But it is morally your business to be honest in the eyes of all men. You must let it be known. Men who in New York build palaces from which they may shoot missiles of unhappiness must know that they aro in danger in their forts. It is not riches which seo odious. Can any man point a finger at Peter Cooper or envy his wealth ? lie is using it to help other people. Riches should be ns safe here as in Heaven, where the streets are paved with gold and no one wants it—all this and more, but the day is too hot." Hero Mr. Beecher paused a moment in ibe delivery of his sermon, and then continued: “The day is hot, but it will bo hotter yet for some men. The only way to rectify these wrongs is to set public opinion right. We must think right and teach others to do the same. Tho poor should re j ice that others are nob, and the nidi flint they can aid and bless the poor. We may be richt in creed, catechism and church, but in secular life be I. Odelscf the woist type.

Deal carefully with bashful lovers ; lead them gradually to the point (cf proposal, of course), but don’t let them suspect what you are at, or they might faint on your hands, or go crazy on tho spot. It is said lovers’ quarrels always end with kisses. This is partly true; hut if you are not cnrelul those little spate you indulge iu may end in the ki-soo you covet being given lo some other girl. If it is possible, try to suit your sisters, cousins, aunfs, grandfathers, 1 neighbors, friends and acquaintances when you happen to full in love. If you can't suit them all, don't wor ry, for tho thing hasn’t been done v< t. If you use powder, don't give your sel: :.v.’av.
