Man. a smn II speck in tno universe, was
set down In a big world, high mountains
rising beforo him, deep Bens arresting nis

could not bo by physical force, for com

elophnut'a tusk, and how weak ho lsl It
could not bo by physical speed, for com

could not bn by physical capacity to soar
or plunge, for the condor beats him In one
direction and the porpolso In the other.
Yet he was to comruer the world. Two
eyes, two bands anil two feet were InsurtW
clent. He mut bo re-unforced, so Ood
sent tho wheel.
Twenty-two times Is tho wheel men

Ezoklel, Illustrating providential move
ment; sometimes, ns In the Psalms, crush
ing tho bnd; sometimes, ns in Judges, rep
resenting (iod's charioted progress. The
wheel that started lu Exodus rolls on
through Troverhs, through Isaiah, through
Jeremiah, through Dnnlnl, through Nullum,
through the ccuturlos, all the time gather
ing momentum and splendor, until, seeing
what It has dona for the world's progress
and bupplness, we clap our hands lu thanks
giving and employ tbo apostrophe of thtr
text, crying, "O wheel!"
I call on you In this Thanksgiving week
to praise Ood for the triumphs of machin
ery, which have revolutionised the world
and multiplied Its attractions. Evon para
dise, though very picturesque, must have
been comparatively dull, hardly anything
going on, no agriculture needed, for the
harvest was spontaneous; no architecture
required, lor they slopt uuder the troes; no
manufacturer's loom neoeesary for the
weaving of apparel, for tho fashions were
exceedingly simple. To dres the gnrden
could not have required ten minutes a day.
Having nothing to do, they got Into mis
chief aud ruined themselves and the race.
It was a sad thing to bo turnod out of par
adise, but, once turned out, u benellceut
thing to be compelled to work. To help
man up and on God sent the wheel. If
turnod ahead, tho rune udvnncos; If turned
back, the race retreats. To arouse, youi)
gratitude and exalt your prulso I would
show you what the wheel lias done for the
domustlo world, for the agricultural world;
for the traveling world, for the literary
world. "As for the wheels, It was erled
unto them lu my bearing, O wheoll"
In domestlo llfo the wheol has wrought
revolution. Heboid the sewing machinel It
has shattered tho housewife's bondage and
prolonged woman's life and added Immeas
urable advantages. The needle for nget
had punctured tho eyes and pjoroad thu
side and made terrible massacre. Te pre-
fiare the garments of the whole household
n the spring for summer and lu the an'
tumn for winter was an exhausting pro
cess. "8tll oh, stitch, stltchl" Tlioma
Hood set it to poetry, but millions of per
sons have found It agonizing prose.
Hlaln by the sword, we burled the hero
with the "Dead March" lu "Haul" and ilam
at half mast. Hlaln by the needle, no om
knew it but the household that wntchul
her heulth glvlug way. The winter aftet
thnt the children were ragged and col J
aud hungry or In the nlmshouse. The hanJ
that wielded tho needle had forgotten It
cunning. Soul and body bud parted at thy
soam. Tho thimble bad dropped from th
palsied linger. The thread of life bail
snapped and lot A Bartering human llfo
drop Into the grave, Thospoul was all un
wound. Her sopulcher was digged not
with sexton's spade, but withasharpor and

at Arlington Heights and ltlnhmond and
Gettysburg, thousands by thousands, but
It will take the archangel's trumpet to flud
the million graves of the vaster army of
Women needle slain.
Besides ull thesewlngdone for'tbe house'

Dut I hear the rush of n wheel, woman

ment, puts her foot on the treadle nnd be
gins, Ilcfore the whir nnd rattlo pleurisies,

an oppressive tyrant, beoomes a cheerful
slave roll and rumble and roar until the
family wardrobe Is gathorod, and wintor if
dullod, and summer is welcomed, and the
ardors and severities of the seasons arc
overcome; wtndlna the bobblne. threading

Hocondly, I look Into the agricultural
World to see what the wheel bus accom

onts, the ono bread for man, the othei
bread for horses, Coat off aud with h

painful boyhood memories is that of my
father in harvest time reeling from ex
huustlou over the doorstep, too tired to
eat, pale and fainting as he sat down. The
grain brought to the barn, the sheaves
were unbound and spread on a threshing
floor, and two men with flails stood oppo
site eaah other, hour after hour and day
after duy, pouudlng the wheat out of thu
stalk. Two strokes, and then a cessation'
of sound. Thump, thump, thump, thump,

Thank you, Ell Whitney, and I,. . Chi
ehestor, of New York, bis siinvoisor. Above
nil, thank Ood for their Inventive genius,
that has done so much for the prosperity
of the world.
Thirdly, I look to see what tho wheel has
done for the traveling world. No one can
toll how many noble and self sacrificing
inventors have benn crushed between tho
coaoh wheel and the modern locomotive,
between the paddle and the ocean steamer.
I will not enter Into the controversy as
to whether John Fitch or llobert Fulton
or Thomas Somerset ws the Inven
tor of the steamboat. They nil suf
fered and wore martyrs of the wheal, and
tbey shall be honored. John Fitch wrote:
"The 21st of January, 1743, was the fatal
lime of bringing me Into existence. I know
ut nothing so perploxlng and vexatious to
a man of feeling as a turbulent wife nnd
steamboat building. I experienced the
former nnd quit In season, and had I been
tn my right senses I should undoubtedly
ave treated the latter In the aame man
ner; but, for one mnn to be tensed with
'totli, he must be looked upon as t li 0 most
unfortunate mini In the world."

Tbo world could not believe Its own e?o,
and not until qulto far on In the eighties
were the continents enohanted with the
whirling, flashing, dominating spectacle of
a machine that was to do so much for the
pleasure, the business, the health and the
prollt of nations. The world had needed it
for 0,000 years.
Fourthly, I look Into the literary world
nnd see what tho wheel lias accomplished.
I am more astounded with this than any
thing that has preceded, llehold the al
most miraculous prlutlug press! Do you
not feel the ground shake with the ma

The murder of a woman and lior three
children was revealed on a farm near Mont
gomery Borough, Lycoming county. The
bodies of two children were llrst found bid
den beneath a straw stack. Thereupon a
warrant was Issued for the arrest of A brum
Hummel, a stepfather of the murdered chil
dren, who is missing. Throe weeks ago
Hummel married Mrs, Yeagle, a widow, who
bad three children. A few days Inter the
neighbors noticed thnt the eldest two chil
dren were missing, aud on Tuesday the
Hummel premises were deserted. A party
of neighbors made a search- They found a
blood-smeared piece of burlap near the barn.
Disarranged straw attracted their attention
to the stack, and under this the bodies of the
two children with their bends crushed were
found. The bodies look ns though tho chil
dren had been dead for two weeks, A tele
gram to District Attorney O. O. Kaupp states
that the bodies of Mrs. lliimmt-l and her
other child were found In an outbuilding.
The dead wro horribly mutilated, the mur
derer evidently having used a club In carry
ing out his llendlsh crime. Montgomery
and vicinity was in n state of utmost excite
ment as a result of the ghastly discoveries.
It Is believed that Hummel has' made good
his escape. No motiva for tho quadruple
murder has yet been found. The crime Is
without a parallel In tho history of Lycom

inquired the cause of bis sufferings.
"Oh," said the latter, "I was very hot
and thirsty, and took a large draught
of the clear water of the lake, and then
rat down ou this stone to consult my
guide book. To my astonishment I
found that the water of this lake is
very poisonous! Oh, I am a gone man
I teol it running all over me. I have
only a few minutes to live! Remem

guide book," said his friend. Turning
to the pasv.ge, be found, "L'eau du lao
est blen polssoneuse" "the water of
thla lake abounds in fish." "Is that
the meaning of it?" "Certainly." The
dying man looked up with a radiant
countenance." "What would have be

not met youT" "I should have died of

Etceptlonally never Fro oil Perpetrated
by an Ingenlone Jeweler,
A few years ago public curiosity
was excited by tbo curious beans
called the "devil beans of Moxlco,"
which shopkeepers placed In their
windows. They somewhat resembled
roasted coffee beans In shape and
color. Tbey were also known as the
"Jumping beans," owing to the fact
that from time to time they made
spasmodic movements which propelled
them quite a Httlo distance. The
beans grew on a small bush In the
Mexican mountains, and it is con
jectured that they belonged to the or
der etiphorblaceae. The bean really
consisted of three similar pods which
formed a single bean. It is usually a
third of the bean which was exhibited
as a curiosity. On opening the pod it
was found that It contained a small
larva, something like that frequently
found In chestnuts. It is this little
occupant which gives motion to the
bean by its Jerks and thumps against
the side of its home. If tbe bean la
slightly warmed It begins to turn
from side to side, and perhaps with a
sudden thump turns completely over
and stands on one end, and then by
successive Jumps moves quite a dis
tance. Those who are not In tbe se
cret are often greatly puzzled by this
strange bean. An enterprising Jew
eler devised a scheme of utilizing
them to make a magic clock. He ac
complished this by imitating the shape
of two of the beans, making the
dummy beans out of soft iron. One
he gilded and the other he silvered.
The prepared iron benns were placed
with the ordinary Jumping beans on a
thin white piece of pasteboard, out
lined and numbered like the dial of a
clock, but devoid of hands, Tbe
dial was located over the works of a
large clock, which was placed face
upward on the floor of the store win
dow. He fastened small magnets to
the ends of the hands. The works
were of course carefully hidden from
view. All that was in evidence was
the cardboard clock dial and tbe
Jumping beans, among which were the
gold and silver painted iron beans.
These were placed on the cardboard
over the concealed hands with the
niagiii'ts attached. The magnets were
moved , by tti? hands of the clock so
that they were aliKC?t In contact with
the cardboard. Aa they moved around
they carried the Iron beans a 1th them
thus telling the time of day. an the
public was greatly interested by tb
Intelligence shown by the two beans,
which distinguished them from their
lively associates. Scientific Ameri

A boy named Veasy, having escaped
from tbe workhouse at Hinckley,
Leicestershire, England, the porter was
ordered to proceed to Stanton, a neigh
boring village, aud bring him back.
The porter went to Stanford on a bi
cycle, and, Indlng tbe lad, tied both
bla arms wl a rope, and, attaching
tbe end of it to his bicycle, dragged
him back to Hinckley, the man riding
at good speed. The affair has created
a great sensation in the district, and at
the recent meeting of the Hinckley
guardians the board expressed their
strong condemnation of the porter's
conduct. One member of the .board
said tho boy was exhausted by the
treatment meted out to htm. At the
meeting the porter's resignation was
tendered and accepted, the man's ex
planation for resigning being that he
did not care for the treatment he re
ceived from the vagrants.

The deer hunting season In the
Adlrondacks opened Aug. 1. Four days
later followed a tragedy. Two broth
ers were camping on the eighth lake
of the Fulton chain. For the younger,
a youth of 17 years, it was the first
season of camp life, and, like all
youngsters In tbe woods in their ini
tial experience, he was aglow with ar
dor to get his first deer. About sun
down this younger brother left camp
alone and shortly after was followed
by the other. When the elder of the
two came to the Ourant road he saw a
movement of the brush, such as is
caused by a deer. On the Instant he
raised his rifle, took quick aim at the
moving brush, fired, then rushed in to
see what he had shot, and found his
brother, who had been killed instantan
eously by a shot through tbe breast. A
human life cut short in the flower of
youth. Another life clouded by the
anguish of the hour and by lire-long
regret and self-reproach. A borne des
olated. And all as the fruit of one
foolish movement with a deadly weap
on in the woods. If we did not read
the stories of such accidents year after
year, and from time to time meet the
bereaved fathers and mothers, and
wives and children of the victims, it
would be impossible to conceive that
grown men could be found to bring
this woe uoon themselves and upon
their fellows. And yet season after
season the record grows. Now it is a
farmer who shoots a neighbor by mis
take for a ground hog; now a Maine
mooBe hunter wbo kills his guide for
big game, and now the Adirondack
camper who does to death his brother
for a deer. Before the season stall be
over and the rifles put away we shall
hear probably of a score of such trage
dies. And it Is all so cruelly heart
rem'lng because so unnecessary.

Some grocers are so short sighted as to decline to
keep the Ivory Soap, claiming it does not ray as much
profit as inferior qualities do, so if your regular grocer
refuses to get it for you, there are undoubtedly others
who recognize the fact that the increased volume of
business done by reason of keeping the best articles
more than compensates for the smaller profit, and wil
take pleasure in getting it for you.
