The March of The Workers. Wlmt is this, the sound ami rumor? What is this that all men hoar Like the wind in ho!lt>w valleys when the storm is drawing near. Like the rolling on of ocean in the evetide of fear? 'Tis the people marching on. Whither go they, and whence eomo they? What an* these of whom ye tell? In what country-are they dwelling 'twixt the gates of Heaven and Hell? Are they mine or thine for money? Will they serve a muster well? Still the rumor's marching on. Chorus—Hark the rolling of the thunder! Lo. the sun! and lo. thereunder Itiscth wrath, and hope, and won der, And the host comes marching on. Forth they come from grief and torment; on they wend toward health and mirth; All the wide world is their dwelling, every corner of the earth. Iluy them, sell them for the service! Try the bargain what 'tis worth. For the days are marching on. These are they who build thy houses, weave thy raiment, win thv wheat. Smooth the rugged, till the barren, turn the bitter into sweet. All for thee this day—and ever. What reward for them is meet? Till the host comes marching on. Many a hundred years, passed over, have they ' labored, deaf and blind; Never tidings reached their sorrow, never hope their toil might find. Now at last they've heard and hear it, and their erv comes down the wind; And their feet are marching on. O, ye rich men, hear and tremble! for with words the sound is rife: "Once for you and death we labored; changed henceforward is the strife. We are men, and we shall buttle for the world of men and life: And our host is marching on. "Is it war, thon? Will ye perish as the dry wood in the fire? Is it peace? Then be ye of us; let your hope be our desire. Come and live; for lifeawaketh, and the world shall never tire: And hope is marching on. On we march, then we the workers, and the rumors that ye reach Is the blended sound of battle and the deliver ance drawing near; For the hope of every creature is the banner that we bear." And the world is marching on Chorus—Hark the rolling of the thunder! I,o, the sun? and lo, thereunder Itiscth wrath and hope, aud won der. And the host conies marching on. William Morris. Woods Full of Boys. It is a cold day when there is not some hoy wanting advice from this ad vice foundry, and there is no duty that is more pleasant to the editor than that ot setting the hoys right when they have symptoms of going wrong. A letter from a hoy at West Alexandria, Ohio, is as follows: Dear Sir:—I have been a reader of your paper for some time and have noticed your advice to boys. I am predican c it to know what to do 1 I thought I would write and ask your advice. I am a young man of seventeen years and am very desirous of going into the saloon business. I have capital enough, but my father and mother object. I think lam cap able of running my own aft'« i rs. Any advice from you will he kindly re ceived by, Yours truly, m a am Now, here is a chance to save a sev enteen year old boy from almost sure ruin, if he will take the medicine. The medicine is this: Boy, take a sharp hatchet, lay your right wrist across a butcher's block and the left hand take the hatchet and cut off the right hand, haggle it, because you can't do a clean job of cuttimr with the left hand. Then go through life peddling pop-corn halls with the left hand, rather than enter the bus iness of selling whisky at your age. As a pop-corn peddler you will he re specled, as a seventeen year old saloon keeper, you will be pitied and des pised, and at the age of twenty you will be a drunkard, or will have mob a dozen other boys drunkarls, an«' the friends of the other hoys will iiat< you, your parents will not be proud of you, no girl of respectability would he seen in your company, and your companions will be loafers; you will be disgusted with yourself, will smel. of stale lemon peel, whisky and two for-a-nickle cigar nicotine, and you will he a sign-post of warning to other hoys to take the other road. Theré, you got more advice than you expected, didn't you. Well, any suc cessful and respectable saloon keeper —and there are successful and re spectable men who keep saloons, though they are as scarce as hen's teeth—would give you the same ad vice. Any of them will tell you, if they tell you truth, that ninety-seven hoys out of a hundred, who begin life at your age behind the bar of a saloon become either drunkards, gamblers, thieves, loafers, or else they lose tueii health, leave the business in disgust and die paupers. You don't want to he an unsuccessful saloon keeper. Well, to be a successful one you have got to have ability enough to be a successful lawyer, doctor, or mer chant. The men who are successful as saloon keepers have ability, which, turned in another direction, would have made them successful in any other calling, and they hate them selves when they think of lost oppor tunities, A they'most hate the wealth that has.come to them through the mouth of a whisky bottle. A man who keeps a successful saloon and makes money, does not realize what business it is until he has a family of nice chil dren grown up. He has money, fur nishes them with a nice home, edu cates them, and is proud of them, and knows that his girls are as beautiful and accomplished as those of the best citizen of the community, and knows that they are worthy to marry the best men of the State or country. The first that he notices is that the young ladies of his household are ashamed of themselves. They try not to show it to the father' 1 who has been so kind to them, but they cannot always disguise the fact that they do not receive attention from desira ble acquaintances. They are quali fied by nature and education to go into the best society, but the sign over a mean the door of the father's place of busi ness is what is the matter. If such a girl is invited into the best society, she is liable to have her heart broken by some one asking who the beauti ful girl is, and hearing the answer, Why, her father keeps a saloon down-tow n somewhere.'' The father may he square und honest, and have friends among the best men of his city, and he may think he is happy, but when he sees that his beautiful daughter is being snubbed on account of the business lie is engaged in, he gets to hate himself. If a bartender should aspire to the hand of that daughter, the father would be indig lf a gambler that frequents his saloon should want to marry the girl he would kick terribly. If a rich young drunkard and spend thrift should ask for her hand, he would be sorry, anil yet those three the classes that would he most to look for an alliance the saloon keeper's U is the of the on. mint. on the the are liable with daughter, while she would he worthy of the hand of a governor. It is when these things come up before the eyes ot a successful saloon keeper that he would give every dollar he has acquired if he hau entered almost any other business on earth. There is nothing redeeming about the bus , except that many saloon keep ers are open-hearted, generous, hu mane, charitable, arid good ft iends. to their friends. They are so because it is natural, and in any other bus iness they would be the same, or mess more so. No, young man, if there is any wood in your vicinity, if there is a crop of peanuts that can be baked and sold, a job to he secured driving a a pair of blind mules hauling the dirt- iest load that can he lound, if you can control the capital to buy a box o' blacking and a brush, go into the peanut trade, drive mules, or black boots or anything, for a starter, hut don't for God's sake, at the age of seventeen, open a saloon, and confine the talent God lias given you, to the base uses of pulling a squeaky cork out o't a bottle of rum, because every squeak of the cork is the wail of a soul that has been drowned in drink, every gurgle of the liquid as it goes from the bottle to the glass, is the throb- bing of a poor brain that has been crazy by the hellish stuff, and every stroke of dirty discloth on the bar, to wipe away the stain of the spilled hell- fire, is emblem of an attempt to wipe the sin from the soul ot the man who kills Ins brother by making him a drunkard. You, a hoy, saying, "1 think I am capable of running my own affairs," against the advice of the father and mother who bore you, is one evidence that you are an ass, hut your coming to the Sun for advice, may do good, and if so send us a postal card, you do not take the advice and do go into the saloon business,send a notice otyour funeral two years hence, when you die of the delirium tremens, or when some customer of yours, who is drunk with rum, as you are now drunk with egotism, brains you with a bung starter when you tell him lie has had enough liquor, and who thinks he is capable of running his own affairs. That will do, hoy, you can step down and make room for the next.—Peek's Sun. - dry the on. ad do of I 17 year old Also if a off to if to a Female Cattle-Herder». At the Galt House yesterday a tall, lank, slim man, with high cheek-bones, piercing black eyes and dark, bushy mustache, scrawled his name in the register. "Prof. W. Zurana, Austin, Tex." "Glad to gi e any information I can," said the lank stranger, as the reporter told his mission. "I am here only for a few hours, llv home is be tween Austin and San Marcos, in the hills that stretch along the valley of San Antonio. Aside from the stories ol' the growth of that portion of the country I s'pose there's nothing that would interest so much as the facts I can give you about the cattle girls of our region. The reporter smiled and the Texan continued. "I know that there is an air of seem ing improbability about this, but it is nevertheless a fact that there exists in the hills ranging along from San Mar cos to San Antonio from thirty to fifty cattle girls. Some of them belong to the best families of that part of the state. Some of them to the worst. They are, however, the finest riders of the west, and can whoop up a herd of ponies better than the Mexicans. They have a leader, a brunette, with long black hair, that cracks like a whip when she is' riding. They own from 400 to 500 head of steers, there two seasons. The leader came from Oklahoma territory, and was said to be a fast friend of the Oklahoma outlaw, Payne. Cody attempted to get the girls to join the 'Wild West' show, but it was no go. They can often be seen on the streets of Austin, though they are never known to stay in town over night. They have a number of frame cottages built for them about ten miles from San Marcos by some Scotch settlers. Of course they afford our part of the Lone Star state a good deal of romantic talk.— Louisville Courier Journal. * ? They have only been Mrs. Speedy', in her "Wanderings in the Soudan," relates the following curiôus episode: "After a long day's march she was just settling herself down to sleep when her host, an Arab telegraph clerk, separated from her only by a thin partition, began to say his prayers in a loud, sing-song chant. She remonstrated: for a time there silence; she was falling asleep when the clerk began his prayers again. Again she remonstrated, again there was a brief silence, to be broken, alas! too soon by the indefatigable clerk, who once more began saying his prayers 'de capo,' this time faster than ever. It was like'speaking by machinery; the whirr and buzz was terrific. ' We learn ed next morning that our host belong ed to a sect which obliged him to repeat his prayers aloud, and which also en joyed as one of its most stringent rules that the voice of either a woman, a donkey or a dog, if heard at any time during the service, made it necessary that the whole of the prayers should be repeated." American oysters are now Degin transplanted into German waters. was An American Audience. The dominant characteristic of the American audience seems to be impar tiality. They do not sit in judgment, resenting as positive offenses lack of power to convey meanings or diver gence of interpretation of particular character or scene. I understand that when they do not like a performance they s'mply go away, so that at the close of the evening the silence of a deserted house gives to the manage ment a verdict more potent than audi ble condemnation. This ply to questions of morals, which can be, and are, as quickly judged here as elsewhere. On this subject I give en tirely the evidence of others, for it has been my good fortune to see our audi ences seated till the final falling of the Again, there is a kindly feel ing on the part of the audiences to ward the actor as an individual, espe cially if he be not a complete stranger, which is, I presume, a part of that re cognition of individuality which is so striking a characteristic in American life and customs. Many an actor draws habitually a portion of his audience, not in conse quence of artistic merit, not from capa city to arouse or cxeite emotion, but simply because there is something in his personality which they like. This sp rit forcibly reminds me of the story told of the manager of' one of the old "Circuits," who gave as a reason for the continued engagement of an im possibly bad actor, that "he was kind to his mother." The thorough enjoy ment of the audience is another point to be noticed. Not only are they quick to understand and appreciate, but there seems to be a genuine pleas ure in the expression of approval. American audiences are not surpassed in quickness and completeness o prehension by any that I have yet seen, and no actor need fear to make his strongest or his most subtle effort, for such is sure to receive instant aud full acknowledgment at their hands. There is little more than this to be said of the American audience. But short though the record is, the impres sion upon the player himself is pro found and abiding. To describe what sees and hears over the footlights is infinitely easier than to convey idea of the mental disposition and feel ing of the spectators, ample and comfortable, and the audi ence is well-disposed to be pleased. Ladies and gentlemen alike arc mostly in morning dress, distinguished in ap pearance. and guided in every respect by a refined decorum. The sight is generally picturesque. Even in winter abound, and the majority of ladies have bouquets either carried in hand or fastened on the shoulder or corsage. At matinee performances especially, where the larger proportion of the audience is composed of ladies, the effect is not less pleasing to the olfactory senses than to the eye. Cour teous, patient, enthusiastic, the Ameri can audience is worthy of any effort which the actor can make on its be half, and he who has ha«l experience of them would be an untrustworthy chronicler if he failed, or even hesi tated, to bear witness to their intelli gence, their taste, and their generosity. —Hairy Irving, in the t'orthnightly Review. does not ap curtain. 7 com one an The house is I owers An Arnh Household. He was a grand-looking old man,and looked all the more so in his pictur esque Arab costume. Following him through a small lobby we ascended a dark and narrow wooden staircase. At the top of it we found ourselves in an arched gallery running round a small court. Here a few goat9 were wander ing about, and from behind curtained doorways numerous dark faees were peeping at us. The principal lady of the household received us at the door of the sitting-room, and soon we were surrounded by at least a dozen women and lots of children, not two of them dressed alike. The poor children were all perfectly laden with bracelets, ank lets and nose-rings, while a few had even nostril-rings. Indeed, many of them looked queer little objects, with f latteras painted on their faces in scar et, yellow or white. Some of the wo men, too, had white spots painted round their ears. I thought these extremely ugly, for they strongly resembled rows of teeth. One exceedingly smart baby was dressed in a yellow silk dress with a bright crimson border and a little cap surmounted by a turf of feathers all the colors of the rainbow. His arms and legs were perfectly laden with jewels, and his little neck smothered by rows and rows of beads, from which were suspended all sorts of charms and talismans. Several of the women were afraid to shake hands with me, and one little fellow, with an enor mous nose-ring, screamed most lustily. This led to our discovery that they were afraid of my dark hands, for I had on a pair of brown gloves. It was the first time that any of them had seen a pair of gloves, and the whole party very much astonished when l them off to find that my hands were white. Miss Allen produced a scrap book, and handed it first to the old gentleman. He commenced looking at it at the wrong end, a9 Arabs always do, and evidently enjoyed the pictures quite as much as the children. Shortly after our arrival the servants brought in a gilt tray with two large green gob lets full of sweet sirup, and we had drink a little of this, as well as three small cups of coffee, the old gentleman particularly wishing me to understand "that it was Arab custom to drink not less than three. were took to Took the Hint. "George," said a country young lady to hcr beau as they snuggled into a seat, "it's nice to ride on the cars, ain't it?" "Yes, Sarah." "George, if you were going to travel a long ways on the cars where would you rather go?" "To Chicago or California. Where would you rather go?" "To Florida, by all means. "Why?" "Be-because, you know, George, be came—because in Florida they have so many orange-blossoms, you know. Oh the return trip they sat still closer together, and she laid her pretty head upon liis big shoulder. He must have taken the hint. To reach Khartoum you travel through a desert by camel or drome dary after leaving the second cataract. From Khartoum for many weary miles between these two forks of the Nile it is nothing but a deuse morass, where all creeping and stinging things abide and where malaria is. truly king. It is so deadly to white men that at Goudo koro, which is some hundred or more miles up the river, it is considered that no white man can exist ten days. n Costly Fancies In Whips. It What is the latest thing in whips? asked a reporter, as he entered the of fice of a well-known manufacturer in West Thirty-third street. , English holly holds replied the maker of the scourges. "English holly or yew, with a light lash. For a gentleman's whip to go with a dog cart this is a very neat thing," holding up a whip whose stock was of native whalebone, polished and mottled, with an ebony handle and gold mountings. "That will cost you about $85. Here's a neat one for about twice the money. Not so much gold on it, but the handle is a species of basket-work, formed of whalebone in terwoven. The highest-priced whips run up to $100 or $125. They are sticks which nature has shaped to the hand, crabbit-sticks, as they are called by the trade. This is a four-in-hand whip, a holly stock, with a sixteen foot lash of horse-hide." "Isn't that what the novelists call the irony of fate, to whip an animal with a lash made from the skin of his own 4« its own "Well yet speciesP" asked the rep< "Yes, I suppose so, but all made of horse-hide now. about played out "How long since the old-style whale bone whip went out of fashion?" Well, that's hard to say. You see the change was gradual. I got the first order for holly sticks in '64 from Syracuse. To fill it I got every ope there was in New York—just three— and I wouldn't pick 'em up to-day if I saw them lying in the street, they were so big and clumsy. Malacca cane and whange—w-h-a-n-g-e—yes, that's right—are used a good deal now; in them you get length and strength with lightness. A good whip of En lish holly or yew costs about $6. hose things that you are looking at in the case are English hunting-crooks. No man who respects himself will be seen on horseback without one. This loop of white kid on the end is the keeper. When an Englishman rides to the hounds he has a long lash attached to the keeper, with which he punishes the hounds when necessary. As there are no hounds in Broadway or in the park, we dispense with the lash but retain the keeper. The hunting-crook has al together taken the place of the riding whip, which is now only used by ladies. The highest-priced riding-whip we have made in sixty years of business cost $355." Before going the reporter was shown through the factory, where were whips in all stages of preparation. In one corner was a machine which upon turn ing the crank moves a web more intri cate than that of the fates. This fur nishes the covering for the whalebone whips. These are formed by glueing four pieces of wood about a long strip of whalebone. The whole is then worked down to the requisite size and taper, after which it is put through the covering-machine and comes out a full fledged whip.— N. Y. Tribune. orter. lashes are Buckskin is n (4 ! Women Who Won't Marry. A Pittsburg woman, in the Despatch of that city, bluntly and somewhat audaciously says; Men marry the rattle-brains of so ciety. They choose the pretty, good for-nothing girls, for that is the kind they like; they run after and marry the liveliest girl at a picnic or a ball, though she may be a "holy terror" at home; they rush after the belle and the heiress, though she may be selfish, spoiled and silly; they pass by the jewels and take "the snide," for that is all they know, and then, like Adam, they blame the fruits of their own folly on the woman. 'Twas ever thus. But, brethren—we wish to break it to you gently—there are women right here at home who have their own money to spend as they please; who have their own pleasant homes and congenial occupations; who can, if the fancy seizes them, pack their trunks and Take a jaunt to New Orleans, slip off to Washington for a few weeks, take in the cream of New York, or the balmy airs of Florida; in short, have a royal time in any way they choose, who call uo man master, and who "wouldn't marry the best man that ever stepped in shoe leather. This will be a shock to you, beloved brethren, but is none the less true. Women find pleasure and comfort and happiness outside of matrimony. It is not flattering to men, but there is a growing disinclination to marriage among women. They are growing more critical as to the measure of a man. He will have to come up to a nobler, higher standard, or, in the poetical parlance of the day, he will get "left." The Chicago Girl's Consideration. Away off by himself in some humble corner of the globe sits the man who first said the Chicago girl had big feet, looking at the immense mountain his original mole-hill of a lie has grown in to. The origin of this slander upon the fair girls of the Garden City is curious. A young lady of Chicago was about to be visited by a school-mate friend from St. Louis. "Mah," she said, "you know how sensitive Julia is, like all St. Louis girls?" "You j^fer to their large feet, Eleanor?" quietly said her mother. "Yes. And you know they look so enormous alongside of ours that I thought I'd order up a case of 25s from St. Louis, and give them around among the girls Julia will meet here." "It would be a delicate kind ness on yon/-'•part, Eleanor," replied the mother, and the noble-hearted Chicago girl did so. When the St. Louis girl arrived at her friend's in Chicago she exclaimed: "Why, dear, your girls have just as big feet as we have!" and immediately telegraphed the fact home. This is how it origin ated.— Rittsburg Chronicle. a " 'The Aristocracy of the Dollar.' Andrew Carnegie, before the Nine teenth Century Club How was he bora? is of the past. What a mau owns? is already subordi nate, in America, to what lie knows; but in the final aristocracy the question will not be either of these,but what has he done for his fellows? Where has he shown generosity and self-abnegation? When has be been a father to the father less; and the cause of the poor—where has be searched that out ? How he has worshipped God will not be asked in that day, but how has he served man? Which of the two divisions of the Anglo-Saxon race is sooner, to reach something akin to this ideal is not so easily answered as one might suppose from looking at the respective positions of the mother and child lands to-day. Certainly the Republic has a clear lead 'at the start. She has never been cursed by an aristocracy of birth; and is in stalling the aristocracy of intellect and not of the-dollar. But it is not always the best starter w-hich wins the race. , of New York: English Ballet Girin. Mr. Hollingshoad. I see, has contrib uted his views of the ballet to a cotem porary. According to him. a ballet girl ought to be pretty, and it is all the better lor the manager if imohers come to look at her, while, if they wait for her outside the stage door, it is uo business of his. 1'hat a ballet girl ought to be fairly good-looking is un questionable, for her mission is to ex hibit the poetry of motion and to post ure in tableaux. Mothers are not ad mitted behind the scenes, for there is no room for them, and clearly t e man ager cannot see all his ballet girls home. It therefore depends very much on the girl herself what she does out of the theater. But the same may be said of the girls in telegraph offices and in shops. I do not know how a ballet girl is exposeii to more temptation when dancing on a stage; with the foot lights between her and the spectators than a shop-girl behind a counter. There are, no doubt, girls who go into the ballet as a means to an end. this is the exception. Ballet girls, generally speaking, are relations of persons connected with the theatrical profession, 1 he theater is their world, and they are accustomed to its ways. At rehearsals they hang together,and in their every-day garments they look very much the reverse of houris. Their chief pleasure consists in eating sweet stuff and cakes, on which food they like to lunch. Their language to each oth er, and when in the room where they all dress, is not refined, but rather the reverse, and it probably would surprise a girl not to the mani.er born and sud denly thrust among them; this, howev er, is the worst that can be said against them, and when they leave the theater they do not loiter, because they have but one thought—to catch the 'bus.— London Truth. But The "Ad" Man in History. History will take care of the great events of to-day and hand them down to our great grandchildren in many a ponderous volume; but the more inter esting picture of the daily life of their ancestors will have to he made from the advertisements now printed in the daily papers. The Romans wrote their advertisements and notices on the blank walls of buildings, and these, as we find them in Pompeii to-day, give an animated and life-like representa tion of the very things we desire to know about this once gay and pleasure loving people. But modern life reflects its interesting little phases, moods, rivalries and concerns in the broad pages of the daily journal; and a hun dred years hence the advertisements in some well preserved copy of the Sun day edition will give a more vivid pict ure of what is going on in the city to day than all the solemn histories fur nish. It is the advertiser who writes for posterity.— St. Louis Republican. — ■ ^ ^ A London paper offered a prize for the best poem on the number of days in the months on the plan of "Thirty days hath September, April, June and November." The winner was an in genious bard who, in rhyme, counted the months on his knuckles, beginning January with the knuckle of the little finger, February between the little fin ger and the third finger, March the knuckle of the third finger, and so on, July being the knuckle of the forefin rcr, then going back to the little finger for August, ending with December on the knuckle of the second finger. It will be noticed that this method of counting brings all the long months,or months with thirty-one days, on the knuckles, while the short months are counted between the fingers.
