cratic defeat is so overwhelming And
{unexpected that both parties are sur- ‘

even dare to hope for such a glorious

on the ground of the free trade pol—

hardihood and during at their hours at
dangerous labor.
But a grade higher in the qualities that
prompt. aspiration are their brothers of
the British northern coasts and the Eng
lish channel. They are chiefly men who
only possess emulation in their calling to
the degree of securing note among their
fellows for hardiness. knottlness and iron
in frame. heart and life. Those of the
Baltic seas are hc-ld in high esteem,’not
only for their bravery and skill, but in a
certain respect and almost awe for their
vocation which have come down, like
folk lore, through the centuries, from the
knowledge that old Danish lnw beheaded
pilots for harm Detailing ressels in their
charge, thus aiding no element of tre
mendous moral courage to on already un
approachably dangerous calling. Our own
Pacific coast pilots are a bright, nervy,
ambitious lot. The gulf, Key West. and
Bahama. pilots are a sunny crew with
more than a trace of “wrecking" taint in
their warmer veins; and, while less hardy,
they are full of romance and song. And
your Cuban pilots—l know well the grace
less throng—are uerveless slaves of a des
potic regime; picturesque in color and act;

Appearance of Tel-..:ient House Children.
Every one who visas among the tene~
ments is surprised at the healthy looks of
the children. who run about harebeaded,
and in summer barefooted. and who seem
ruddy and strong. But they are the sur
vivors who have passed through the criti
cal age of infancy, when the weak quickly
succumb to the foul air and torrid heat.
Even these survivors, though they may
seem outwardly vigorous, have but little
strength, and when an epidemic of mea
sles or scarlet fever prevails they quickly
yield to its bnneful influence. The man
agers of children‘s institutions will con
firm this statement, and it shows how the
eflects of tenement life are perpetuated.
The terrible mortality among young
children is the most potent evidence of
the efieets of the tenement house system.
The massacre of the innocents in the
homes of the poor is amazing and appall
ing to any one who has given it thought.
For upward of twenty years some 15,000
to 17,000 children under 5 years of age
1 annually perish in the metropolis, and
1 most of them from what. with fine irony
are called “preventable" diseases. Dee
spite the steady increase in intelligence
and the various improwments that have
been made in our sanitary regulntions,
in the condition of the streets and. in the
character of the new buildings fla‘t have
been erected, the proportion of \Dtildren's
deaths show a steady advance, and it will
continue to increase until radical measures
are taken by the health authorities to im
prove the tenements—N ew York Journal.
American Money In Europe.
It is more to the present purpose to
speculate upon what the 100,000 Ameri
cans who come to Europe this year will
get for their fifty or more millions of dol
lars. There will be taken back, in a tan
gible way. 1; great many suits of English
made clothes, bought cheap; alargo num
ber of Paris made gowns, bought very,
very dear; some pictures, some books,
some bronzm and bric a brnc, in all rep~
resenting :.cveral millions of dollars, but
not or very great importance one way or
the other. What of the intangible but
more vital acquisitions brought back by
the returning hosts? I grow discouraged
when I try to answer this question to my
self. Seeing the American abroad, either
here in London. where he plumes his
wings, shaking the soot on! their feathers.
so to speak, for his fight to the continent,
or over in lands across thechnnnel and
North sen, it is very painfully borne in
upon the observers that he is not getting
the worth of his money—London Cor.

The )ludurn Croquet Gruuml Made of
Dirt Rolled Hard and Level—Hits Hard
to Make—row Ladies Attempt Scien
tific l'lny.
Even as set up on ordinary lawns, with
arches six int-hes wide, croquet is in game
that. rcquin-s an amount of liemlu‘urk
fully as great as is needed to play a good
game of billiards. A man who is a \cry
ordinary shot can win from one who hits
with grunt accuracy if his hcudwork ink
cidcdly supcriur. Of course. Inm talking
now about the. {our ball game; the game
with (me bull apiece is to the other what.
euchrc is to whist.
If these things are true of the game as
ordinarily laid out, they are multiplied in
force many times when the ground is a
perfectly ievel saluted dirt floor. when the
arches are only oue»t‘nurth of an inch
wider than the halls. and when both play
ers are skillful enough to hit an exposed
ball from end to end of the ground and to
hide their atlversary's hall behind a
wicket with great accuracy.
The modern croquet ground is made of
dirt rolled as; hard as need h:- aud made as
level as a liilliurd table. It. is surrounded
by a slightly raised border. so that hulls
do not go out of bounds. To prevent roll
ing the snrfarz- is sanded slightly. The
wickets are .\t'l firmly in a “kick of wood
planted ten inches deep in the ground,
and are of thick enough wire to resist a
heavy blow. The halls are of hard rubber.
3 I—l inches in diameter. The wickets are
3 1-2 inches inside measurement. The
mallets inav be of :in) pattern or size that
suits the fancy of the player. but the most
approved style is one with a head ten
inches long. having hard ruhher tlllln se
cured by a steel band, and with a handle
about fourteen inches long and rough»
ened so as to secure the grip. The llt'st
of them screw into the head and are per
fectly round. The ground is laid out
with two stakes of iron less than an inch
in diameter, two wickets at each end and
two on each side, in a line with the second
arch from the stake and with a double
middle wicket set crosswise. This middle
wicket consists of two arches like the rest.
joined over the top and about tifteen
inches apart. The hail must he sent
through both of tin-~1- at a single shot.
The only way to do thi 4, with a fair pros
pect of success, is to Like a l'uqtiet from a
ballashort distazite frl-tu the arch and

wickets and at the next Now go through
them both.

To get iii position in any other way is

through the center or lmth wickets you
cannot- go through wit ‘:mat a carront, and
cart-unis. in croquet. are mighty uncertain
things for most pool-1e to try. Professor
Charles Jaeohns. of I\ew Brunswick, can

center wicket. : it". 221- iliii‘nzllit'c‘d it with
great success in iii-i :mur's national tour
nanu-nt at Sun; ix-h. it i; now called
after him—tho .iuuxhns >hot. A year or
' ‘ i, while he was living at.
tru-im-n-i another carrom,
been miiwi the "Mutnwnn
versm', ‘a hall was in the
«luuhit- comer wicket is
1 was on the other side of
-r, almost in the jaws of
it, and directly \‘-'il't:tl from the bail in the
cane and from the nth-31' bails. .\lr. Ja
cohus struck the fur: her wire of the cor
ner \vichct. canmua-zi from it. going
through the arch, and nit the hall resting
with such :ziigmi'viit mwurily in the cage.
It is not ”KL-n, huwcn'r, that games are
won by such s:ii.~‘zt'.§oii:i| shots. It. is
steady, accumk- piziy and good manage
ment that toil in the long run.
I had often \z'ishul for a standard of
comparison between persons who piuya
good ordinary gunn- like myself and the
real expert». i made the comparison the
other day, and it came out. just as I cx
pectcd. In nine out of ion games the man
who is called a ”splendid player" by
his very ordinary cmnpctitors would
make about two archcs playing with 111'.
Jacohus, or Dr. Reed, or Mr. Botsfonl, or
any other of the "cracks." and the chances
are that. he would not not hold of the balls
at all during the game. \Vith aweci:'s
practice, and after becoming used to the
ground and the narrow arches, he might
do better, and bother the expert seriotisiy,
but. he would not in. likely to win a single
game the first, year.
Furthermore, no man has any business
to try to play on such 9. ground who can
not. hit n. hall almost ‘un‘nilibly at. a. dozen
or fifteen feet, and whh cannot, after get
ting a bull to play on, make the circuit of
the arches on nu ordinn r 1: erund once out.
of three or fuur tinn 'a :u Lust. llc ought,
also to be able to make the different sun-ts
of roqucts—tu send lhc driven hall a long
distance while his own unly moves a few
feet, to send [be two along together, and
to send his uwu further than the driven
ball. It is very handy. [OO, on occasion,
to be able to [nuke a “jump shot"—lhat
is, to jump over :1 ball yrn are "dead” on
and hit. another one beyond and in line
with it.
According to the rulz‘s in force in the
National association, (1 hall is in play :25
soon as it is plnced nt the starting point
ready fur the first tap. It is usual among
the experts not to attempt the first wicket
on the first shot—the consequences of
failure would be too soriuns—but to knock
down 1.) the fur ('(:l'll(!, where the follow
ing player is not likely to get hold of him.
The great thing, of eonrze, is to get hold
of the balls, send your antagonist‘s next
ball behind a wicket, nnd keep your own
bulls well together, ninking wickets when
you can. and never allowing him to get a
shot- exeept from behind :1 wire.
\Vhen the game is played in this way,
it may he finished in ten or fifteen min
utes, but if the pluyem get. hold of the
balls alternately. and make errors once in
a. While. us all merely human beings will,
occasionally, the gnnie may last for seven
hours, as one of the games zit-the tourna
ment did last August.
As yet but very few indies attempt
scientific croquet, but there is no reason
why they should not. The short handled
mallcts necessitate rnther ungrnceful
Emitions,.but ladies need not use short
andled mullets if they prefer grace to
accuracy. But this kind of croquet is
not an “exhibition" game, adapted to the
display of graceful uttitudes and pretty
drew, and meant only to bring people
together in pleasant social relations. No
one can play it who does not love the
gauze for its own sake. and whose
thoughts are not directed, for the time,
wholly to the business in hand—“i .\.

the daughter of some farmer rich enough
to buy her employer over and over again.
I have a servant in my house whose father
is one of the. best known Dutch farmers
in eastern Lehigh county, and is worth at
least $50,000.
“Before. the war the old Dutch farmers
held to the custmn of their fathers, which
prompted them to never refuse to extend
financial aid to another, and that without.
exacting \vrittcn obligation or interest.
If one farmer llt't'tll'tl a few hundred dol‘
lars he went to any neighbor whom he
knew had the money. The loan was at
once forthcoming, the borrower naming a
certain day and hour on which the money
would be repaid. If he failed to keep his
word he was forever in disgrace, and no
one was bound to respond to his request
for aid again. Defaults in payment of
these unsecured and unremuucmtive loans
were very rare, so sacred was the verbal
contract hold. The scarcity of money that
came with the curly years of the war, and
the premium that gold commanded, sent:
speculators through the Pennsylvania
,Dutch farming regions, and the cupidity
of the farmers was soon awakened, and
they tor the first time began to realize
protlt from the use of their money. Then
the old custom of helping one another
without some return of the favor was
graduallymbnndoned, and the bond and
mortgage took its place. As the Dutch
farmers, as a class, are seldom in need of
borrowing, and are suspicious of outsiders
in making loans, the existence of fortunu
in stockings and coffee pots may be
further explained.
“\Vhen the common school system was
first proposed, although it was the scheme
of Pennsylvania Dutch legislators and ex
ecutives, the farmers were a unit: in oppos
ing it. After it. was authorized by law
its machinery in many of the districts of
the Dutch counties necessarily passed into
the control of its opponents. Their policy
was to establish as few schoolsas possible,
keep them open only a tew weeks in the
year and employ only such teachers as
were willing to serve at the lowest possible
wages. Many old timers have not modified
their opposition to the common school yet,
and will not accept its benefits. The con
sequence is that,- there nre whole communi
ties where nothing but German is read,
written or spoken. It is a charanteristic
of the race to preserve their language,
which is a quaint combination of English
and German. _ _ _ _ _
“The one great characteristic of the
Pennsylvania Dutch is their regard for
and strict attendance at. church. No
matter how far the nearest church may
be away, the farmer and his family never
miss a Sunday": servicc. A man may
oflend against law in other ways and
be forgiven, but it he neglects his church
he is at once placed under the ban of
society. The Pennsylvania Dutch are
proud of their party, and they adhere
ciosbly to old forms. They are the
severest 0t Pioteetants. Politicians
understand and use his love of church
among the farmers, and n candidate going
among them and making ostentatious
show of his church connections, and, being
able to quote from the Scriptures, captures
the hearts and votes of the simple minded
Dutchmen. _ _ . ‘_ _
“Probably nowhere else in the country
are the social pastimes of the farmers pre
served and indulged in to such an extent
as they are among the Pennsylvania
Dutch. The apple cut. the corn hosting,
the quilting bee, the old fashioned country
dance furnish the amusement and recrea
tion to the buxom Dutch maidens and
lusty swnins to—day as they did to those of
hundreds or years ago. The dances are
kept up from early evening until daylight.
There is no going to bed attera dance.
The Women go at once to their household
duties and the iuenio their luhor in the
iield the some as if they had slept as
usual, from candle light to candle light,
according to the old Dutch custom. Work
indoors and out Wins as soon as there is
light enough to see, and continues until it
is too dark to see, winter and summer.
“The Dutch families discourage and
disapprove of all marriages that will
destroy the purity of their blood, and
hence the nmrringes with members of any
other race are very rare. This accounts
(or the remarkable preservation of the
language. the customs and the traditions
of their forefathers among these people,
surrounded as they are by influences of
the highest modern thought. and example.
But in spite of their exclusiveness, their
tenacious udhcreuce to ideas of a century
ego and stubborn resistance to the
advance of those of to—dny, the lessons in
integrity. industry. thrift and thorough
ness which they have given have had a
most heneiiciul cilect. not only in the
region which they have developed, but.
throughout the state as well, and Penn
sylvania. is uhundredtold the better for
their prescnce."—Cor. New York Mail
