two Years Required by Its Makr, an
Inventive Minister, to
Complete It.
The great reflecting telescope lens,
4ve feet two inches in diameter and 5
inches in thickness, completed by the
late Dr. John Peate, in 1898, is soon to
e mounted. An observatory with all
laodern appliances will be built for it
It the American university at Wash
ington. The mounting of this lens and
the building of the observatory will
eost 1100,000, and is made possible by
the gift of a philanthropic Pennsylyan
lan, reports the New York Times .
Two years were required to make
this great lens. Its maker was a preach
tr remarkable for his inv.enti.ve genius.
Many important inventions of the pres
int have been the work of ministers.
One of the most successful lifeboats
ased by the United States life saving
lervice was invented by a minister of
the Gospel. The Rev. John Peate died
about a year ago at his home in Green
rllle, Pa. Dr. Peate was 75 years of
age before he began the making of
tenses and the study of astronomy aft
er his advanced years had caused him
to give up active pastoral duties.
At first Dr. Peate began the study of
the methods of polishing glass for as
tronomical useV Having acquired a
technical knowledge, he at once went
to work upon some lenses of small size.
It was soon recognized that he had the
requisite skill to accomplish great
things in this line. In all he completed
16 mirrors of various sizes before the
end of his days. One of these is in In
dia, one 22 inches in diameter is owned
at Thiel college in Greenville. The larg
est one made prior to the wonderful
62-inch lense was one 30 inches In
At first it was difficult to find a glass
manufactory that would cast the 62
Inch lens. Finally the attempt was
made at Butler, Pa. Five times, it is
Bald, the molten glass had to be poured
Into the great mold before the result
was pronounced perfect. When the
portion of the work to be done at But
ler was completed the lens was taken
to Dr. Peate's home, at Greenville. Dr.
Peate here made an enormous grinder,
which is said to have been the first of
Its kind used in making a lens for a
telescope. This shop became a Mecca
for scientific men, even from a great
distance, and Dr. Peate became promi
nent among the scientific societies of
Europe and a member of the Astro
nomical Association of London.
When the great lens was completed
It was tested in several ways before be
ing sent to Washington. A hundred
rards distant frrm it in a field a dial
the size of the face of a watch was
placed, and a word was written with a
lead pencil upon the face. A small pin
occupied the center of the dial, and a
hair was used for a hand. The lens
magnified this dial 10,000 diameters,
and every part of It was prominent
from the distance mentioned.
The big lens was completed in 1898,
and is said to be the largest in the
world. After being cast it weighed
about a ton, and when finished about
1.500 pounds. The task of polishing
alone required nearly three months.
! When Dr. Peate first talked of making
for the American university a lens of
the dimensions of this one there were
celebrated opticians who asserted that
It never could be done and that a glass
such as needed could not be cast.
Always More Positions Open to Rab
bis Than There Are Ap
plicants For.
The other night several of the rabbis
who are here attending the Central
Conference of American Rabbis were
discussing the great scarcity of Jewish
ministers of the Gospel, says the Louis
ville Herald.
"It seems passing strange," said one
of the most prominent of the rabbis,
"that there are always more positions
than there are preachers in the Jewish
church. This is not true of other re
ligions, and from conditions existing it
would seem that just the reverse condi
tion would be true.
"In the first place Jewish preachers
are paid better than those of any othe
denomination. Even the younges
preacher gets a salary which the av
erage Christian preacher waits many
years to earn.
"Another thing1 is that the work of
a rabbi is not usually so arduous In
point of conducting services as that of
the" Christian minister. The services
are not so frequent nor so long. Fur
thermore, they arc always simple.
"In spite of this there are hundreds
of cities of considerable size in this
country ..which are hungering for a rab-,
bi. When the students of the Hebrew
Union college, of Cincinnati, are grad
uated they always have six or seven
fine positions offered to them.
"Possibly the solution of this is that
the bright young Jewish men take
more readily to the other professions,
where the emolument is greater and
Into which they can enter quicker."

THE two men had been natural antag
onists from the time they came
to the state both determined to wfest
fame and fortune in the keen strife in
cident to transforming a wilderness to
an empire.
Chamberlain was ardent, Impetuous
and, often rash. There was where he
gained his strength with his fellows.
Morton was cold, clear and practical,
never losing sight of the end in view or
sacrificing a point from motives of sen
timent. His hold on his fellows came
not at all from friendship or enthusi
asm, but from that impulse in man
kind which involuntarily admires sheer
force of intellect and the man who
Chamberlain had by far the best start
and the most ro his favor. He came of
good blood and his family had furnished
men of mark in many of the walks of life
for many generations. He had a good
education, and while his Immediate fam
ily was not at all in good financial cir
cumstances, his connections smoothed
the way to business relations which
relieved him of many of the financial
embarrassments of a young lawyer.
Morton had no family connections but
were a handicap to him. What education
he had was what he had acquired by his
own efforts and by contact with the
world, aided by his own native wit and
unyielding energy. When he first came
to the state he was not admitted to the
bar, but was a clerk in a real estate of
fice. He was sharp as a steel trap, how
ever, and made himself exceedingly val
uable. Soon after he plunged into poli
tics he began to studiy law, and by
adroit manipulation adad to indefatig
able work, succeeded in obtaining his li
cense to practice in just half the time
the statutes provided. There were hints
of questionable affidavits, but the young
man stood so well in his examination
that he went through all right. The
older lawyers predicted failure. But he
displayed a native ingenuity in several
important cases which routed his de
tractors and silenced his critics. At the
same time he did not devote his best en
ergies to the law, and from the first
succeeded in holding an influential place
in the manipulation of the inner work
ings of politics, and incidentally also
was generally on the public pay roll In
some capacity. r , '
In the meantime Cnamberlaln was
winning a name and place for himself
in the practice of the law. He, too, was
deeply in politics, and was an important
factor in the party councils. He sought
no petty office, and. was altogether more
popular with the people than with the
It was between these two strong, prom
ising, virile young men that Helen Wins
ton was asked to choose. The rivalry
leaped the bounds of politics and busi
ness and invaded the domains of love.
Both became ardent suitors of the dash
ing, black-eyed girl with the musical
voice and the soft womanly ways.
Through all the years of their upward
struggle both wooed her assiduously,
and to both she gave warm friendship
and cordial good-fellowBhip nothing
more. As the years grew both became
more insistent, but she -Would not
choose. Indeed, she could not fathom
her own mind. She liked both admired
both Immensely and thoroughly enjoyed
herself in their company. Moreover, be
ing a true daughter of Eve, she took not
a little Joy In having these two brilliant
young men dangling in her train. She
liked the dash and go of Chamberlain,
and was charmed by his scintillating wit
as well as his chivalrous and kindly man
ners. On the other hand, she admired
the keen Intellect of Morton and stood In
some little secret awe of his dominating
personality. While his wit bit more than
that of Chamberlain, it was not less true,
and he was good company in all the term
Time ran on and both men in succes
sion became membe.rs of the state legis
lature and occupied strong positions in
the upper councils of the party in the
state. Morton was particularly strong
in practical politics in that depart
ment of activity which produced tangi
ble Jesuits. Chamberlain became a
power on the stump and his judgment
was eagerly sought in the matter of
framing platforms and deciding on is
sues. ,
Still, Helen refused to decide between
them, and both men declined to retire.
Then came a novel situation in the po
litical world, bringing with it a marvel
ous opportunity. One of the United
States senators representing the state
died. It was at a time when new indus
trial conditions had created new issues
and party lines wavered, ft became
plain at once that none of the old leaders
and idols could be elected without seri
ously imperiling the supremacy of the
party which had controlled the state
for decades. New men were sought, who
could preserve the traditions of the
party and at the same time satisfy to
some extent the demands of the popular
trend of thought. In the agitation re
garding the senatorial succession the
names both of Chamberlain and Morton
were mentioned by the newspapers as
promising and potent, young leaders of
the party who were in line with the ad
vanced thought. Singularly enough at
Ihis particular time both young men were
pressing their suits for the hand of Helen
Winston in the most imperative man
ner. The girl was nearly distracted at
the ardent, imperative attitude of her
suitors. Finally she made a resolve
which she communicated to both.
"I am ambitious," she said. , "I like
both of you. I do not know how to
choose. The United States senatorshlp
is open. Both of youare among the pos
sibilities. Both of you want an immedi
ate answer. I will marry which one of
you becomes United States senator."
Chamberlain at first would not hear
to the plan. "I do not propose," said he
with fine dignity, "to make my wife the
prize of a political campaign." But after
all, nature triumphed, and his intense
desire for the beautiful creature lent him
wings in making a campaign.
, Morton, never wavered. "That settles
it," he said, quietly, looking into the
depths of her dark eyes with the pene
trating glance which marked his most
powerful moments. "You may set the
date as soon after April 20 as you please
the sooner the better. The legislature
elects on the twentieth, and I will be the
"You are confident," she said, smiling,
faintly. 1
"I have gotten what I wanted in this
world thus far by paying the price," he
answered, calmly; "whether the price
was expressed in dollars, sacrifice or
work. I never wanted anything one
tenth as much ae I want you. I will pay
the price." He left her abruptly.
The campaign was short, sharp and
decisive. The vigor with which both
Chamberlain and Morton took hold of
it soon drove all competitors from the
field. But even the desperate energy
which Chamberlain threw into it his as
pirations' and the full exercise of his
splendid powers were overshadowed and
nullified by the tremendous force dis
played by Morton. Morton had a dom
inant hold on the party organization
and a familiarity with men and methods
and details beside which Chamberlain
proved a mere infant. Morton knew the
weakness, the strength, the associations
and the relationships of every man in
the legislature. He knew how to reach
the inner motives of every man of them
and he left no stone unturned. While
Chamberlain gave much of his time to
the rallying of public sentiment, Morton
went only after legislative votes. It was
openly talked in political circles that
Morton was mortgaging his future in
every way in his fight, that every inter
est In the state that might want any fa
vors from the federal government was
receiving substantial assurances of his
cooperation in case of his election in ex
change for present help. But what puz
led the wise ones was the access to money
which Morton seemed suddenly to have
acquired. The sums spent in his be
half approached those attributed to the
mining kings in the western states when
they decided to buy a senatorshlp. And
the puzzling part of it was that Morton
was known to be a man of small means.
He had always been eager for political
power and not at all thrifty in money
matters wanting only money enough
to suppjy his personal needs and willing
ever to sacrifice pecuniary rewards in
politics and elsewhere in order to attain
greater political power. ,
At any rate, money by the barrel was
spent in his behalf; every exertion was
made by those in charge of special inter
ests with a weather eye on Washington,
and nearly every efficient politician in
the state was active in his behalf.
The result was foreshadowed. Mor
ton was elected by an overwhelming

"Harold isn't an ordinary child, by
any means," observed the fond mother.
"He has tremendous energy and it is
sometimes quite a problem for his father
arid myself' to keep it properly applied.
Only the other day he got a can of red
paint that the men had been using to
paint the back fence with and daubed
it in stripes all up and down the front
of the house as high as he could reach,
and when he had done that he went next
door and did the same thing to the front
of their home. Of course, he didn't mean
any harm, but they were quite ill
natured about it.
"I thought it showed an artistic ten
dency to a certain extent, though, of
course, crude. It needs development,
that's all. t
"I was going to say that the woman
was mean about it. She scolded the
poor child aud then she came and com
plained to me. I told her that I was very
sorry and that I would ask Mr. Kidly to
see that It was cleaned off, but I let her
see by my manner what I thought of her
making a fuss about a little thing like
"But the amusing part of it was that
Harold, poor child, took her scolding to
heart so much that she had hardly got
back into the house when he ran out and
flung, a stone through one of their win
dows. He was going to throw another
when I called to him and made him come
in. I told him that it was very wrong to
throw stqnes through people's windows.
Harold is very sensitive, you know, and
he wasn't used to being talked to in the
way that woman talked to him, and,
being a child of spirit, it was quite natu
ral for him to resent it. What Harold
needs is kindness.
"He has such an inquiring disposition.
Why, he'll sit and ask me questions by
the hour oh, on the strangest subjects.
I always make a point of answering him.
It was the greatest scandal the senate
ever encountered. Grave and reverend
senators were nearly in tears about it.
Senator Morton was charged in criminal
proceedings with prostituting his high
office for a money price. It was charged
that he had represented an illegitimate
concern in an Illegitimate transaction
before a department of the government
for a money fee.
The trial dragged wearily at first, but'
beeame more exciting as it progressed.
Finally it was shown that Senator Mor
ton had made it a business of represent
ing questionable interests in their ef
forts 'to slide under departmental regu
lations, before the heads of government
al offices and that he had received
money fees therefor. He was found
guilty, sentenced to a short term in the
penitentiary, which involved the loss of
his right to hold office and the further
loss of his citizenship.
After the sentence had been pro
nounced and Morton had returned to his
hotel under bonds, he was visited by a
woman heavily veiled Helen Winston.
The interview was short.
"I release you from yiur pledge," he
said to her In the same cold, clear voice
he had ever used. "I played for high
stakes and I lost. Only one thing I have
to ask of you believe that through it
all I have loved you honestly and un
selfishly. What I did I would have done
for no other reason than my love for
you. It was made the price for your hand
that I become senator. I became sena
tor and paid the price but the load I
assumed was too heavy; and in paying
it I have lost not only you but all else.
I do not regret it. If I had it to do over
again I would do the same but youare
not interested in this; good-by."
That night Chamberlain called upon
her. and made a last plea. "YoU were
flazzled with the glamour of apparent
success," said he. "Now you see the fu
tility of success won at the price of
honor. 1 love you, Helen. Forget all
that has happened and come with me.
We will travel the safe and the happy
road' and it will not be without success
and honor."t'
She turned away her head and said:
"No, not now. Wait for a few months."
On the day Morton was released from
his imprisonment three months Inter
he found a carriage waiting. Inside the
carriage was a woman Helen Winston.
He started in surprise.
"What, you ?" he gasped.
"Yes, dear," she said, simply, "and
this is our wedding day. I palliate noth
ing of your dishonesty but yqu did it
for love of me. Greater love hath no
man. I will go to the end of the world
with you."
He looked at her keenly out of his keen,
gray eyes. Then the tears welled up-for
perhaps the first time in his life.
"The world well lost," he said, as he
gathered her in his arms.
The following day Morton and his wife
departed for South America.
I think a child should be taught. And
he's thorough. He isn't content with su
perficial knowledge. The other day he
was asking me what was in the sofa pil
lows and I told him some of them were
stuffed with down and some with feath
ers and the green flat one had pine
needles inside. Of course he wanted to
lenow then what down was and I told
him it was little feathers and the other
feathers were Just feathers and that
they didn't sew things with pine needles
and that the other kind of needles didn't
grow on other kinds of trees and I went
into the subject, as I thought, quite thor
oughly. But Harold wasn't satisfied
and while I was out of the room he took
my scissors and cut' open two of the pil
lows arid when I came down he had the
feathers scattered all over. He wanted
to see for himself, you know. I think
that is such a splendid trait in a boy,
don't you know. If he makes the law
his profession it will be valuable to him.
"He's got lots of spirit and a will of
his own. We can't make him do any
thing he doesn't want to do unless we
can make him see that it's for his own
good. I always reason with him and
just as soon as I convince him ypu never
saw a more obedient and docile little
fellow. You see, what Harold needs is
some one who can understand him and
deal with him intelligently. Excuse me
a moment and 111 see what he's doing
now." .
As the fond mother left the room,
records the Chicago News, one of the
visitors turned to the other and said:
"What Harold needs is a nice, large,
smooth-backed hairbrush laid on hard
where It will do Ihe most good, and I'd
like to be the or to give it to him."
The other visitor nodded.

Elaborate Little Garments That Are

of Fine Dress.
, Beautiful coats are made of tan colored
taffeta and of black taffeta and white.
These taffeta coats are delightful in cut
and are made in all the varieties and
vagaries of Dame Fashion's dictate,
says' the Brooklyn Eagle.
One of the prettiest styles Is that of a
modified kimono. This is straight, and
is finished around the bottom with stsap
plngs of cloth. The cloth, which is not
more than half an inch wide, is stitched
along .both edges. It extends up the
front and all arouud the lower edge of
the coat. A similar band of tr.ffefa. is
used to outline the yoke and extontls
around the neck and up on tht coat in
great swirls.
The sleeves of this taffeta klmor 6 are
very wide and are finished with stitcheg
bands of cloth, which is also put on in
swirls. The yoke is trimmeij with twirls
of cloth stiched upon both edges.
The vest of this coat is' fashioned of
Persian embroidery, which is carried out.
in many color's. Red and blue aud green
! are outlined upon a background of pastel
An elaborate little coat of this kind can
he worn either with a silk skirt or one of
cloth and Is equally pretty with satin or
with taffeta. It makes a nice little coat
for calling and reception wear and' it
makes a pretty coat for grayer days and
rougher occasions.
