THE END OF THE YEAR.
li is perhaps well that the termination
nl the brief eras of human life which
the calendars annually punctuate for
us should be fraught with festival joy
and the outpourings of all more or less
generous natures. Among the greatest
joys of childhood's days are the antici
pation and realization of the visits of
the fat and jolly fellows, who, regard
less of soot and the later-day new
fangled range arrangements, continues
I<> enter the houses l>y the old chimney
mode. It matters not that the pudgy,
genial individual of the juvenile imag
ination in reality may be displaced by a
tail, lank pater families, or a spinster
aunt who at other seasons show precious
little patience with the prattling young
sters. The child, a little older grown,
i- on the tiptoe of joyous excitement
buying and making and giving pres
ents and speculating upon the returns of
the season in substantial remembrances
and party pleasures. Those of budding
man and womanhood to whom the whole
year is bright with hope and ambition
liiid the sweetest pleasures centered
hero. Fathers and mothers, brothers
Isters happily vie with each other
to fill all hearts, young and old, with
gladness and amalgamate the ties of kin
and friendship which the struggle for
existence so sorely strains. The with
. I.i heart of chronic bachelorhood be
comes infected, and shaking loose some
ol the barnacles which have been gath
ering upon it. unite* with all the com
mendable phases of human nature to
disseminate the remindnuce of the birth
of the Prince of Peace and the exten
sion of goodwill to nil mankind, and
the diffusion of the spirit and deed of
generosity, of philanthopy, of charity,
"i brotherly interest, of fcindly justice,,
ol genuine and general joy with which
the season is supposed to be laden.
This spirit may Rave moved men to be
grievous before being just. Theredoubf
less are many aching hearts, many
falling tears which simple justice could
displace with comfort and radiating
smiles. The economists can tell us
more of this. But the feeling 'of gen
eral joy and the familyhood of common
lv. inanity, it il l>e but for the moment,
leaves its pleasant impress of the clos
ing year, and spurs one on to more al
lituclinous aspirations, to broader
thoughts and more generous deeds.
As, involuntarily with us, the passing
fragrance of the flowers is still sweet in
our recollection long after their decay,
and a tew brighi deeds of an otherwise
ordinary life make- the remembrance of
that lit., au inspiring one, so dues the
completion of a twelve-month with gifts
and gaety make more satisfactory and
more encouraging our thoughts of the
year that is closii
Hut this merry season over, and its
rollicking excitements quieted, people
look forward to the beginning of a new
and happier and more prosperous year.
Mere inclinations become wishes and
wishes become well-founded and well
made resolutions. Resolutions beget
formulated plans and calculations,
begin to shape and proportion
themselves more or less in accordance
with the caliber of the resolvent. Then
follows the inevitable speculation as to
the outcome of this plan and that, ltis
but human nature thai we should enter
tain a certain degree of curiosity and
solicitude as we set our pace for the
coming year, for it is to us an untried
licld about which we shall only know
much at its dose. Jts bitters and
s yeets are alike concealed, and how
wise was the Creator who made it so.
I'.y common consent the birth of a year
is preceded by a quiet little moral and
intellectual resolution accompanied by
numberless resolutions which have given
to the history of eacn year a consid
erable part of its character. The reso
lutions, unwittingly of the resolvents,
may lead the revolution astray. We
may be poorer, instead of richer. We
may be worse, instead of better. How
fortunate for us, then, that we cannot
know the future year, and can find
much incentive for the happiest of hopes
and most lofty plans. Upon what we
bring to the year will depend almost
entirely what the year will brinp: to us
in turn. Circumstances and conditions
may militate against some of us. Cries
of misery and distress undeserved come
to us now so distinctly that all the ex
citement and all the laughter .ma ail
the greetings of the season cannot
drown them. Virtue stauds naked and
shivering in uncanny and unwholesome
places. Valiant and able men are shed
dine tears over a pitiable condition ihat
some form of oppression has brought
But public thought i> being centered
upon injustice in all the various shapes
that we see it at present, and those
wrongs are certain to succumb. The
grandest and noble it resolution that can
he made on New Year's day is that we
will do by every brother man as one
would be done by. if a heart is aching,
lind out why and cheer it. If a wrong
i^ being done, Dud out how ami right it.
It is no excuse u> saj thai we have not
time to do these things. It is, indeed, a
selfish estimate which puts the value of
lime beyond such employment, and if
every man would make these resolves
and abide by them there would be little
agony, little disappointment, few tears
but at the tomb.
t 1 t
(•! course, we have to deal in our pri
vate thoughts with minor matters, too.
.Some of US, nearly all of us, have a spe
cial desire to create or increase our
fortunes. Some arc in mental hunger
for an education in some particular line.
Some desire social or political distinc
tion. Some lia\e great mechanical,
financial or educational projects tocarry
out. Some, dud help them, want clothes!
Again, we have failings and short
comings of the existence of which we
are perhaps more cognizant than the
world thinks, and of which wo wish to
lid ourselves. Habits of all shades from
mere indifference to positive wicked
no.-, may have developed a hindering
and threatening hold upon us. and we
may h.tve come to recognize the neces
sity of freeing ourselves from their
grasp. Or we may appreciate the value
.-dine undeveloped quality would be to
us. and we desire lo cultivate and en
large it. To the strong and the resolute
man all these things are possible, llon
cst and active desire usually father's
success in these things. Noluke-warm
promises will avail. No haphazard
running after imaginary good will ever
reach the eaol. Learn which way is
right and keep your face toward it. Do
not merely promise with the lips, but
with the soul. The signing of a score
of pledges, the making of avowals, are
of no avail if not supported with the
moral courage to fulfill them. Well
developed determination is worth more
than all the resolutions in Christendom.
There are weak, irresolute people who
wish much and accomplish little—peo
ple who seem inclined to do well and to
do right, but are lacking either in ability
or in the firmness necessary to maintain
good ground when it is taken. All such
arc in need of the sympathy and guid
ance of the more fortunate, and the edi
lication and elevation which will make
them independent. Criticism discour
ages them. Oppression makes criminals
nt them. Education and fair treatment
are the panaceas for their ailments and
the stepping stones to the point where
they will cease to vacantly wonder what
i- going to befall them, immediately the
impulse which prompted them to're
solve, when that was the spirit in the
air, has fled. To be true to ourselves
we must be true to the highest instincts
of human nature and the loftiest pur
poses of our creation. Let us then de
termine to do simple justice to all man
kind, to give to each that which is his,
lo encourage the able, to be charitable
with the weak, and we shall have a
new year of unprecedented joy and

and Those Who Took
Part in It.
The Irish-American club watched the
old year out and enjoyed one of its
noted social hops. The club is made
up of the noted Irish-American people
of St. Paul,. in fact it would be difficult
to name a prominent gentleman of that
class in the city who is not a member of
this club. It was organized a little
more than three years ago, and has
maintained remarkable popularity in
the city. The club rooms were at the
corner of Ninth and Minnesota streets
for two and a half years. But
the club is now located in most
attractive quarters on the third floor of
the Endicott, Arcade, A very social
home like place it is, too. The first
president was C. D. O'Brien; then
Thomas Brennau served a year, followed
by P. T. Kavauaugh. The present af
fable presiding officer is T. D. O'Brien,
county attorney-elect. The social last
night was given in the club rooms and
was made up of a number of the mem
bers and their wives, daughters and
sisters. The company was not a large
one, but it was a most agreeable and
pleasant one. Among those present

selves up in red blankets. In the midst

were dropped, the boys slid down the

sounded four taps harness was hitched

Ten Years' Growth.
To be accurate with regard to the
growth ot The Plymouth Clothing
House, we will state that in 1881 the
business was started on 2,000 square
feet of floor room, while to-day it occu
pies even- inch of 54,000 square feet.and
is by far the largest outfitting establish
ment in the entire West. There is
nothing of the kind in Chicago which
in all respects equals "The Plymouth."
The wide range ot temperature char
acteristic of the delightful climate of
Minnesota requires a great variety of
wearing apparel, ranging from the Gauze
fabrics of summer to the rich and
beautiful Furs of winter.
Nowhere in the world are finer, bet
ter or more fashionable goods worn than
Nowhere are lower prices made.
Indeed, so little profit is there in
the Clothing business as a whole, that
several Eastern clothing manufactur
ers, with successful branch stores in
various other cities.have been unable to
secure a permanent foothold here.
This goes to show the superior econ
omy and method of a home institution,
owned and operated by home capital
and managed here on the spot, with a
policy always in harmony with the in
terests of our city. The Plymouth

had been shown anywhere, but there
seemed insurmountable obstacles with
reference to the log storage. The East

who owned the controlling interest in
the Brainerd dam and flo wage, had, Mr.
Weyerhaueser said, kept continually
raising the price, until now he under

made the cost for a place to do business

to ask the Northern I'acific company
