Agricultural diversity Ik at
the root of the harmonious develop
ment of commerce and manufactures,
and why? First, because it is the
safer business policy not to put all
one's eggs in one basket, and local
prosperity that depends on a single
industry is crippled when that indus
try undergoes a reverse, whereas di
versification tends to produce a higher
average of independence of disaster,
to any special crop and puts a com
munity in better shape to take advan
tage of Opportunities and to cultivate
a spirit of enterprise. This isits di
rect bearing upon commerce.^Ohtda

Sunday's Pioneer Press: Yester
day closed the mest satisfactory and
successful exhibition ever held upon
the Minnesota state fair grounds.
There was, from first to last, no fail
ure any particular, aud the hosts
who were present from every part of
the Northwest departed not only sat
isfied but delighted. The exhibits of
the year showed the work of intelli
gent planning and careful prepara
tion. The races were of the first in
terest, the attractions of the track
proving a great drawing fard day
after day. And yesterday the grounds
were simply jammed to yri|nesS the
military contest which had oeen re
served for the closing feature. It was
the great day of the fair, attended by
thousands of people of leisure for the
sake ©fthe sham battle, and by othtr
thousands who were able, by the ap
pointment and recegnllton of a work
ingmen's day, te take their first look
at the fair. With the single excep
tion of the opening day, there was a
week of such weather for outdoor en
joyment as only Minnesota can fur
nish. This was all that was needed
to crown this year's display as a
splendid success.
The universal approval of and de
light in the exhibition 1? the best
vote of thanks that cau bo offered to
the fair management. To them jfreat
credit is due for their energetic and
comprehensive preparations. For the
railroads, also, something must be
said. While it is only natnral that
the bulk of fair attendants should be
drawn from these two cities, there
were this year several times as many
people from out of town as were ever
before present. These are the people
to whom the fair belongs and who
ought, most ef all, to attend. This
season they were enabled to come by
reason ot the low rate of one cent a
mile for excursions. The roads that
offered these terms deserve the thanks
of the public, and at the same time
they have their reward in an ampler
proflt than they could ever have
reaped by exacting the customary
high fares. It may be iu place to add
eveu at this early day, that the enor
mous turnout to witness 111# Grand
Army battle indicates to those who
shall have charge of future displays
the importance of adding to the
programme some features novel
enough to excite curloslfjr 'The pat
ronage wbisj^tfrese elicit Is immense
gj greater tuan the necessary cost.
The state tair is unanimously voted
an immense success. The result is
due to Its enterprising management
and to the hearty co-operation of the
Northwestern public. Hay Its shadow
never grow less.

140 post ofllces in the four counties
with the request that it bo,given to
some family afflicted with the dis
ease. Since then they have received
several letters from there,*the follow

I »b at my/wits' end. As I write, ray
case of razors is open before me the bright
blades, uiuliinmed, alas! ami undulled by
qso, virgin as they came from the cutler's
forge, lie randy to my hand but my hand
shrinks .from the last, ths desperate
strops. At 43, health, money, a wife,
•hildren 'thnt^k against them I well may
tour a grudge). even, I may say, honor
and an aiiUismLshed reputation, are not
things to be abandoned wltkout a strug
gle. Yet life and aU the rest are embit
tered to me by one misfortune, which no
efforts hare enabled me to overcome, no
stoicism has availed to disregard and, had
1 ths courage, priest as I am, I would
strike the blow, and suicide should drop
the merciful curtain upon the pitiful farce
of my existence. Let me see if penning
the tnlo of my woes will nerve my hand
to end them.
Yet the tale will but move the world to
laughter. My wife has long pooh-poohed
me and urged me "not to think of it as
well urge the eel not to think of skisping-,
or th® fugitive cur to disregard the kettle
tied to his tail. Bnt then she is supported
by the courage and a good deal of the ap
pearance of a grenadier.
Old frisnds speak sympathlzingly and
say, "Well, old fellow, I wish I had half
your complaint. But some men never
are satisfied." Ah I I know their tones
of regret and envy are mere mockery
safe in the possession of gray hairs and
gonty toes, they know they can trifle with
me as they please.
I can scarcely bear to divulge my secret
to those who do not know me and it, but
I must. My curse is this. I, a man of
45, a husband, the father of a great lout
of a lad and a gawky girl, a priest in
holy orders and a bachelor of divinity,
have the face, the figure, the voice, and
the carriage of a cherry cheeked boy of
14. Ah! you may laugh, hut none can
know what I endure till they have tried
It. Just consider. I look like a nice,
healthy, lower school boy. My cheeks are
pink and smooth my hair is yellow and
rough and plenty of it my waist is slim,
my back is flat I walk with a springy
step at times involuntarily I run, and I
believe I still could beat any alto in my
old school choir.
It was not till after I left Oxford that I
became conscious of my affliction. At
Oikllege miny of us do like boys, and act
like boys Jfeo. My post was na|r.rally the
plf-iHiUitfone of
of the college eight, and
alt:' ugh raftmen and bargee® ffuffawed
pri ril when I came down to the boats,
and HtGe boys from the towpath mimicked
my skriD, imperative voice, «tiU I was
petfcsd and pepular, e* cox is by virtue of
hi* o£S*», and I was happy. They carried
m* ikooMar high round the quad and
plaoed me en the table at "wines" to pipe
my treble songs, and, if I felt like a tit
mouse beside the giants of my crew, I was
tout fulfilling my steersman's mission,
•fhose, indeed, were golden days. But
from the time I announced a determina
tion to take orders, trouble grew up
around me. Tutors said they doubted If
I should have "enough influence clergy
men, to whom I applied for a title, seemed
skeptical of my "seriousness and when
I called on the examining chaplain to the
bishop of my choice and explained the ob
ject of my visit, the good man looked puz
zled, but 6miled kindly and asked with a
surtout point de zele air If I didn't think
I had better not have troubled to come to
him till I was within more measurable
distance of the earliest age for ordination.
And at thut moment I was 24.
At that time, indeed, I knew I looked
boyish but then I often felt boyish, and
not being a vain peacock, I gave little
critical study to my appearance vanity is
not my besetting sin, and in those days I
did net stare gloomily in the glass for the
purpoee ef detecting some hope, some
'promise of ages or, indeed, for any
other purpose. Though below the
middle height. I am not a dwarf, and
yet the awiul. conviction of the truth
had not forced itself upon me. I did not
know how childlike a froat I, presented.
At last, however, I obtained a curacy in a
parish, where we had a fine old church, a
considerable choir, and several other
curates, and, finding my vicar kindly, and
his wife positively affectionate, I settled
down to my work and looked forward to
a happy and beneficent life. Within a
week my hopes were crushed. There
befell me a calamity which has left me
ever since a blighted and dispirited being.
I had but just been ordained, and I was
very full of the solemnity and the dignity
of my new position. We had just finished
& wedding in humble life, and about half
an hour was to elapse before matins. I
had taken a subordinate part in indis
solubly yoking a bashful country lass
to a very bemused looking gaby from the
plow tail, and was waiting in my
surplice for the service in which I was, so
tonpeak, to make a "first appearance."
The weather was hot, and I laid aside my
stole and hood for a while for I was as
proud and careful of their untarnished
rustling glory as a mother of her first
born and I stood at the vestry door chat
ting to my vicar and two of my fellow
curates, who were making their mystical
toilet within. On a sudden I heard a Very
sweet girl's voice saying, "Oh, I do wish
I could make out this window—there
should be some one to explain it," and
looking down the church I saw one stont
elderly lady and two slim young ones ex
amining a window of Ananias and Sapphi
ra. I looked again at the girls, and oh,
joy! I recognized two fair Americans who
had appeared in Oxford during my last
term there and had been the objects of my
passionate and heart stricken devotion.
Never had I forgotten them. Cajolery
and intrigue had once brought me into
the same room with them, but before I
could find an opportunity for an introduc
tion they were gone, and I saw them no
toore. Now was my time. Straight I
tripped down the steps of the channel and
presented myself before them like a knight
arrant, as I thought, coming to deliver a
distressed maiden. 'You would like to
know what the subject of the window is?"
I asked blandly. "It Is very old glass
and very quaint allow me to explain it,"
and I sailed fluently on. "Dear mel"
cried the elder lady presently, when I
came to a pause, "how interesting! What
a very happy idea to have the church
shown in this way, and what very nice
choristers there are here so intelligent
and well behaved!" I thought this rather
irrelevant and was puzzled, but all
praise of the church just then was
honey to me, and I said complacently,
^"Yea, the choir is very good we take great
jfelns, and great attention is paid to dis
cipline." Why the young ladies should
have tittered, or the old lady have lgoked

so all-abroad, I conld not guess but as
people were beginning to come into church
In considerable "numbers I drew toward
the chancel steps, discoursing as I went,
and then, as we reached the chancel gate,
I paused, intending, before we parted, to
make some allusion to having met them in
Oxford. The elderly lady, however, mis
took me. She stopped at the foot of the
steps, where her head was still slightly
above mine, and bringing her band out of
her pocket, where she had been fumbling,
slipped a half crown into my palm and
said, "There, my little man, that will do
you've got it all very nicely now( I must
just give you one kiss, my dear," apd with
that I, yes I, was kissed publicly on my
own chancel steps, under my own rood
before the eye« of my own pastor
and flock. "Oh, yes! dear little fellow,"
cried the young ladies, 'he is so pert and
cunning," and they too kissed me with
great goodwill.' I stood with flaming
cheeks and mouth agape, the half crown
still in my hand, watching them as they
complacently retreated down the aisle.
Then, when they had disappeared, roused
by the titter of ladies and the guffaws of
my fellow clergy at the vestry door, I fled
hastily and buried by blushes among the
registers and surplices of the vestry.
It was useless to remain in that parish.
The conduct of the congregation next
Sunday, when I stepped forth to read the
lesson, proved that to demonstration. Of
course such a story had spread like wild
fire. The church was crammed, and when
in reading about David, who was "ruddy
and withal of a beautiful countenance," I
came to the words, "Look not on his
countenance or on the height of his stat
ure, there arose such a stifled laughter
as sounded like the wind among dry
leaves. I stopped short, consumed with
shame and mortification,«nahle to see the
book for tears, and then, with an astute
ness I did not know I possessed, judi
ciously fainted away and was borne out
like a child in the arms of the basso
It was a skillful stroke and. might have
^retrieved me, bttt I-could pot ferool^to re
main there longer, ^fly the ass'stalce of
the archdeacon and the consent Jf the
bishop, who tried hard not to laugh while
he gave it, I was transferred to another
county. But though no like blow fell on
me there, I saw the attempt was useless.
Did I go to school to catechise or exhort
the boys, my presence was a signal for
disorder. As a matter of course my au
thority was disregarded. Girls chatted
under my nose, boys extracted from
dirty breeches pockets pegtops and
toffee before my very eyes, and even
looked to me for encouragement, and if
the master was forced to come to the
rescue and cane a lad, the ingenuous youth
would appeal to me, with an air that said
as plain as words, "Come, you know what
alley-tors are? Why.don't you put a stop
to this grown up tyranny? Have you no
fellow feeling?" At baptisms mothers re
fused to let me officiate upon the bawling
infant, vowing "they weren't agoin' to let
that theer careless boy play no tricks with
the blessed baby." My ministrations pro
voked hilarity at funerals, and once an
irate virago, with whom I was expostu
lating on the wickedness of her ways,
soused me neck and crop, clerical hat and
all, into her soapsuds and washtub.
With much pain I dropped my holy
calling. Marriage and a literary life ab
sorbed some years. I strove-1—heaven
knows how earnestly—to correct the vice
of my appearance, but the more I ad
vanced in life the more absurd matters
grew. Occasional glimpses of hope only
proved delusive and plunged me back
again into a darker despair. If I have
tried one patent infallible whisker pro
ducer I have tried twenty. I have been a
mine of wealth to barbers. Fluids that
would make an elm plank shaggy simply
make my cheeks look chapped. Many a
time have I gone. to rest daubed with
pomade, only to find in the morn
ing that it had "fled from my .chin in
the night to seek a more hopeful
ground on the pillow. Once a slight
downy efflorescence made its appearance
under my jaw, and for days I was almost
delirious with joy, and walked the streets
with my chin in the air to show my
manly beard. Alas! like Jonah's gourd,
it withered in one night, as it gr^w. Sud
denly it dropped off and left my face hair
less as the sole of my foot. Afc ,4P I still
looked Kke 14.
But though I looked as if time had
stood still with me, in fact it has made
as good haste as with other fwifs. My
wife is half as tall again as I, apd twice
as heavy. When I give her my arm she
puts her fingers into my armpit, and peo
ple are ceasing to take lier for my
mother and think I am her grandchild. I
am blest with a hopeful young family, a
boy and a bony, awkward girl, who looks
already over the crown of my head and
has to stpop down to kiss me. The boy I
do think an extraordinary creature. He
is not more than 1G, but he looks as much
older than his age as I, so to speak, look
younger than mine. He is tall and
burly, and has a mighty mature and
lumpish look. The beard which fate
has denied me adorns him, and with a
double portion, and, now that his voice
has broken and settled itself into a kind
of hoarse bray, boyish is the last word to
apply to him.
I took him down the other day to Harl
borough school to enter him there. My
railway journey was neither more
nor less of a misery to me than
usual. An economically minded ticket
inspector remarked considerately to
my son, "I'd have parsed him
with a half ticket, sir! You needn't have
got a whole 'nn." I went to the refresh
ment room and asked for a four of whisky.
The young lady behind the bar leant over
and cried, "Oh! you horrid little boy! I
shan't give you nothing but a glass of
milk and a bun, not if you was ever so.
To think of the likes of you wanting fours
of Scotch, indeed!" and a burly country
man standing by smote me on the back
till I choked, and guffawed, "Haw! Haw!
Thee'rt a good 'un. I loikes thy cheek,
little chop," and in trying to force on me
a drink of his beer contrived to pour
some half pint into my neck and waistcoat
and then cursed me for his own clumsi
ness. The bookstall man treated me with
polite indifference and paid no more at
tention to me than to a spaniel. Finally,
wtKP 9 grim eld lady got into our smok­
ing carriage she fixed ma with stony eye
and said,
you nasty little boyt
smoking at your age! Where do you ex
pect to go to?" and proceeded to take ray
pipe away from me while the other pas
sengers said, "Well, he is too young to be
smoking, for sure," and that lout of a son
of mine went black in the face with
laughter and declined to corno to the
Harlborough was reached at last, and
we walked up to the headmaster's house.
With some difficulty and two half crowns I
induced the incredulous butler to usher us
in, and having got rid of his first notion
that it was, as he said, "a 'oax," I found
I had cast out the first devil only to have
a more wicked one take his place for
now he winked jocosely and bade us
"come this way, young genie'men," and
actually poked me in the ribs before go
ing round the screen and ushering us into
the doctor's presence. I was wild with
wrath at the indignity. "Doctor," said
I, fiercely and shrilly, "I mu»t protest, 1
insist, sir." He glared at me haughtily,
and then, turning to my lout, said, "Is
t.hi» some farce If, sir, as 1 suppose,
you are bringing your little brother to en
ter him at tne school, let me say that we
have the means," and he swished his
hand through the air, "of correcting that
unbridled and Insubordinate demeanor
which the loss, no doubt, of a father, and
the absence of parental control, has in
duced in him. I see," said he, as the
gaby turned crimson and shuffled from
ono foot to the other, "your brother's
pertness not unnaturally discomposes you
believe me, I attach no blame to you, and
I think," he added significantly, "we can
soon remedy it."
My cup brimmed over. What exactly
I said I will not repeat. Let me not for
get that I am a clergyman, and that it is
my duty alike to forgive my enemies and
to eschew bad language but for the
nonce my language was very bad indeed,
and very wrathful and the matter was
made all the worso by the fact that
the doctor was bnt a young manr. "Sir,"
I cried, "I took an honorable degree a*
Oxford when you were still being birched
at school, and was a priest in holy orders
before ever you were in coat tails. How
dare you gibe at my personal appearance,
sir? How dare you make a mock of my
infirmity? You seem so inhuman, and se
indecently fond of the most degrading
part of your duties, that I would gladly
leave this grinning oaf with you, and then
he would get the thrashing he deserves
for exulting in his father's discomfiture.
But then I should have to speak with
you, sir to speak with you! and I will
not lower myself by having anything to
do with you evil communications corrupt
good manners, sir, and I will not stoop to
imperil my own good breeding by com
municating with a pedagogue, who, in
stead of a scholar and a gentleman, ap
pears to be a coxcomb and a boor and
with this tirade I flung out of the room in
a rage, and my son slunk out at my heel?
I was spcechless with fury till we got
somo distance from the house. Then,
looking up, I saw that my wretched boy
was sniggering still, and in my mortifica
tion I struck him with my cane. There
were several of the lads about, and he, poor
fellow, was high and mighty In his new
tail coat, and he felt the indignity. He
lost his temper, as I had lost mine, and,
turning on me, he boxed my ears. This
was too much. To what depth of con
tempt must I have fallen! I dropped on
a bench and burst into tears—the bitter
est tears, I think, that ever man shed.
I gave him money and sent him home
alone, and then I wandered away in inde
scribable wretchedness. I was blind to
all that passed I neither 6aw nor cared
where I went. I could not even pursue
one train of thought, however miserable.
Not that any oblivion came mercifully to
relieve me from my sufferings. I passed
through moment after moment of exqui
site pain, but each seemed isolated, and to
be endured by itself separately, and with
out any continuity with either tlie mo
ments that went before or those which
followed after. How the time went I do
not know, but after what I thought was a
great while I found myself sitting by a
dull, dark stream, staring gloomily into it.
I do not know what was passing through
my mind perhaps no settled thought had
formed itself but I was in a very abyss of
despair. Suddenly I felt a little hand
thrust into mine, ^and a child kissed me.
I looked up and saw a village girl of 7 Vr
8 years old, very plain bnt for a pair of
wistful eyes, who gazed pitifully at me
and said, "Pot" boy!" From her lips I did
not wince at the reproach of youth. Slowly
I came out of the dark mood In which I was
ready for I know not what rash aet and
in talking to the little girl, and feeling
her hand confidingly in mine, I gradually
found composure and resignation. She
was very shy, and even stupid, and, when
I got her to speak, her voice was eoarse,
and Bhe talked in a villainously provincial
accent but still, by her mute kindliness
and fellow feeling, she had saved me from
what I dared not contemplate, and I owed
her a debt of gratitude which I could not
Alas! these milder moments wtre not
for long. At last I reached hor*e, and
found the boy, who had preceded yhe, had
told his story from his own point of view,
and my wife, perhaps rightly, took his
part. "I suppose," she said with stately
censure, "I suppose it is useless to hope
that you are ashamed of yourself, but I
am ashamed of you. No wonder you looV
such a baby when you give way to such
childish tempers. At your age to mind
what you look like! Yon don't act like a
man and you don't deserve to be treated
like one. And to strike the poor boy be
fore the whole school I Oh, it was toe
I dare say it was but it was not dis
creet to tell me so, and she does not know
what I feel. Her chiding has brought
back all my old bitterness and gloom,
and I think if I were now on that river
bank again, not even the little girl would
save me. But men are weak, and for the
present, for want of a convenient way
over to the other side, I must stay on this
and abide my life as best I can. When I
am gone, if I go, this narrative may per
haps lead a few to think not too harshly
of me.—Jerome Yeo in Belgravia.
The Old Man Cnred 'Em.
It appears that in this bank the clerks
Were frequently compelled to ask the pay
ing teller for a little financial assistance
between pay days, and he, being of a
kindly disposition, cashed their due bills,
carrying the paper in the drawer as so
much cash. At the end of the month the
advances were deducted from the salaries
of those favored. These pieces of paper
were professionally known as "snakes."
It so happened on one occasion that the
bank examiner paid his official visit when
there were in the drawer "snakes" amount
ing to about $200, and the paying teller
was compelled to confess that he often
advanced money to the clerks in this man
ner. "It's a bad practice," said the ex
aminer, "for it encourages extravagance,
and is liable to get you into trouble with
the board." Soon after his departure the
cashier—a venerable gentleman since de
ceased—approached the paying teller and
asked what was meant by the term
"snakes" which he had overheard used in
the conversation with the examiner.
There was nothing left him but to explain
the whole mutter, which he did by telling
how the young gentlemen in the bank
had gotten behindhand in their finances
and were forced to negotiate short loans
each month.
"And this is really the condition of onr
young men?" remarked the cashier.
"I am sorry to say yes."
"How much of this paper is there In tiW
"About $200."
"So much as that?

The little due bills were banded him,
and he walked into his private office. In
a few minutes he came ont with a check
in his hand. It was his personal check for
the full amount of the "snakes." Said
"Putihis in the drawer. I will give
these young men a chance," and he tore
into small pieces the numerous due bills.
"They are now free and let them keep so.
Don't advance any more money. Here
after I Avill loan it out of my private funds.
What thoy owe now is canceled."
It took about five minutes for this little
affair to be known in the bank, and every
man in the place at once proceeded to
grumble to himself because ho did not
have a "snake" in the drawer at that par
ticular moment

la 187B there were but about 15© Chiaa
men in New York. The Chinatown of
the present was a very insignificant col
ony, and a queue seen on the streets
created a sensation, at least among the
ranks of the small boys downtown. Now
there are fully 9,000 Celestials in this city.
They are doing well in various lines of
business, and there are a large nnmbor of
them who have bank accounts running
into thousands and tens of thousands of
dollars. In fact there are at least two
Chinese merchants in Mott street who each
own considerably over $100,000 in property
and money. It was not uptil 1875 that
the Chinese took possession of Mott street.
At that time the six companies of San
Francisco, which practically controlled the
Chinese population of that city, established
an agency in this once fashionable street.
As new arrivals from the flowery king
dom appeared on the scene they settled
down in this spot and Chinatown waxed
and grew strong, until it beeame what it
