The street is graded nearly to the railroad tracks , and by to-nig'ht blocks will bo laid to Second avenue. The now hook and ladder truck will bo shipped from Chicago to-morrow and is expected hero Friday. By that time the work on the new house on Ens' Broadway will bo far enough advanced to admit of its being housed there There is considerable curiosity to bee it and llnd out the name , which has thus far been kept a profound secret. All the nojv electric light material has been received with the exception of an engine and dynamo. The dynamo received a dhort time ago is not as largo as ordered , and will bo changed. The masts are on the ground and work has been commenced putting them up. The company expects to huvo the new lights in operation in about three weeks.

THE LUCKY ONES AT THE FAIR. Tie ! Vo tin IT and Ilnflllng Cloned An other Term of District Court Opens To-morrow Brief Items Quickly Told. A Gifted Prcnclipr. * Those who attended the Congrega tional church yesterday morning or evening had a rich' treat , and thos'J who attended "both services had a double ono. Rev. Mr. Gates , the president of the college at Grinnoll , occupied the pulpit. Ho is a young man , of strong individuulltynndan ; evidently honest as well as earnest thinker. Ho is at times eloquent , and throughout very interest ing. In the morning sermon ho dis cussed some of the theological puzzles which have caused more than ono mor tal to stumble over what appeared clear to others. Mr. Gates expressed himself as very charitable towards the honest doubter. Ho did not believe that the honest atheist oven should be so stoutly condemned as is done by many. Ho was satisfied that if a man was honest in his thinking , it would lead him to earnest bcurch for truth , and no matter how great his doubts this honesty and earnestness would sooner or later bring him into the light. It had always been hard for him to believe in the justice of the idea that God drew a dividing line between the good and the bad , and that all men on ono side of that line were eternally condemned , and those on the other side were eternally blessed. There were gradations of good and evil. There was a mighty scale of degrees , leading from the moral man up through the various grades to the saints with Christ at the summit , and leading down ward through the different degrees until the bottom of the mighty scale was lost in terrible darkness. It was hard for him to believe that somewhere in the center of the scale of morality there was a division made , and all above that point were good , and all below it were bad. It seemed to him that another division was more rational and just. There were at different points on this scale of morality men who had their faces turned towards the glorious light of the summit. There wore others whoso faces were turned toward the darkness of the bottom. . It seemed to be the test ns to which way the face was turned. No matter where a man was on the scale of morality the important question was , which way was ho turned ? Was ho looking toward the light , was ho reaching after the better things ? Even if ho were low down in the scale , if ho was thus looking towards the light , there was hope. If ho were of high moral standing , and yet was turning away from the light above , ho was going to the bad. Last evening the gifted preacher tlo- livered an interesting and able sermon on "Christian Education. " OVKKCOATIXGS !

At the Methodist Church. The Rev. Dr. Reese preached a vorj able sermon , yesterday morningfrom the text "They took knowledge of then that they had been with Jesus. " Pete and John were unlearned and ignoran men , retired in the northern provinceo Galileo , they had not the advantages o the culture of the schools which th Jewish Sanhedrim , before whom thoj wore brought readily discovered , ye with all their unlettered condition they were the propagators of a power which was stirring up the city. Theire audi tors know that a considerable time had olajiscd since Christ was on earth. They had recognized His divinity and by crucillcation had , as they thought , put Him away from them , and them selves beyond the reach of his teaching and the power of His influence. But there was something about Peter and I John that reminded them of Christ. The speaker hero elaborated showing the points of resemblance between these disciples and Jesus. Strong characters leave their impress upon the world. They are intimately felt and known by those who lire associated in their especial lines of thought and work , and 1 through those , the world is reached and I moulded. In developing this thought the influence of companionship mid as sociation was brought out with wonder ful realism. The lives of men who have become historic as reformers educa tional , political , social and moral were referred to. * Men live in deeds and books. Plato in his philosophy ; Shakespeare in his tragedies ; Matthew and the evangelists in their gospels ; Washington in the declaration of independence ; Lincoln in the emancipation proclamation , and 1'oabody in founded charities. Notable men wore referred to , illustrating the intluonco of mind upon mind by the fact of similarity in taste ; but whatever the alTlinty of the man or the personal pe culiarities , the intluonco of Christ is the sumo upon all. His influence runs into nil the channels of human life. The influence of Christ is perpetual. A lapse of years dims the memory of oven our dearest friends. God has ov- daincd that this shall bo BO , else the re- mombrnnco of our loved and lost would crowd our lives so full that wo wouldn't remember God and His claims at all. ' The influence of the church was illus trated by the action of the magnet upon steel tilings' . Jesus said : "If I bo lifted up I will draw nil men unto myself. " Tnat ho has done so is proven by the fact that the gospel is preached in and the church is founded among people who speak more than 300 dialects. Head re ligion and heart religion wore devel oped nt length. The former is in the demands which denominations make upon men in forms of worship ns being essential to salvation. The latter is in the life and character of the man mid is emblazoned in the command , "Lovo God with all ' thy heart and thy neighbor as thyself. " . In the afternoon- there was n young people's meetingnt which Miss Miinsol , a returned missionary , guvo impractical address upon that 'work1 and its. needs. . In-tho evening the , padtor , dellym-ed his second address upon , the subject of 'Temperance. " The morning nnil evening services wore attended by largo cofigregations , which presages u most successful year under the ministrations of the now pastor.

The hat for the most popular young huly was sold at auction. All the articles wore dis posed of with the exception of a beauti ful wrap , donated by Eisomnn &Co. , which will bo rallied away some time in the future. The ladies wore busy till day yesterday removing their property , ns the janitor wants possession this noon. There was not as much money received for the voting ns wns expected , but the amount netted for the fair will not fall much short of $2,000 , although the exact sum is not yet known. Every thing considered , the fair was an im mense success , for , ns ono lady said , "Wo can't pick up $1,500 any time wo happen to want it. " PROFITABLE HORSE BREEDING A 1'rlzo Essay In the Western Agri culturist. Profitable horse breeding is breeding the best blopd of a family by itself , or breeding up on the family the breeder prefers , nnd using only the best mules of pure blood of any strain , good euro from the birth , and careful training to the dny of sale. Fashions change in horses us in till other matters. Just now the draft horse to the majority is the horse , nnd the thoroughbred is in a manner overlooked. Any strain of horses with good pure blood or well graded up can bo bred with profit to the owner , if a judicious course is pur sued from a Shetland pony to a draft horse but to reach the best results them must bo no crossing blood to get something better. The way to improve any stock is to improve on itself. Each strain of hordes can bo bred profitably , but ditlerent bloods will require different euro and training. Ono wishing only to breed for sale , a diflorcut course must bo pur sued from the ono who breeds for use llrst , and wile when ho lias a surplus on hand. The latter must bleed diflerontly from ( I may say ) the wholesale breeder who makes breeding for sale his only object , and will perhaps do better with a different stock. Now the draft horse is the horse. The city people tell us so , nnd they , of course , know more than farmers or breeders. Whether this is so or not , the draft horse is the fashionable horse , nnd hav ing the readiest sale , is the most profit able horse to raise , if bred right and true. Many buyers consider the size without regard to purity or mixed blood. A true breeder will consider blood alone , nnd breed pure or grade up with pure blood males. The first object in breeding draft horses is to attain early maturity , and only enough training given them to make them ready for salo. Draft horses , like beef breeds of cnttlo , should mature early. The course I should pursue , if could afford full blood or high grade mares , would bo to select largo native mares approaching nearest the typo I wished to breed , and breed them to ono strain of the draft blood , until the colts could bo shown as nearly full blood. To properly train colts , they should bo handled from birth , and when four or live days old haltered and led arouiu' with their mothers. If ono is careful only ten or fifteen minutes are required , and if repeated for some timowill never bo forgotten by the colt. Feed the mothers well nnd tench the colts to eat with them as soon as can bo , and when weaning time comes , with a little more feed and taking them away gradually from the mothers , they will not feel the I change from milk to heartier food so much. Neither colt nor mother feel the separation so much if the change is I gradual. \ From wcnning time until good spring pasture comes , colts should bo well cured for in every respect ; should bo well acquainted with and feel their keeper's hand every day ; the halter pu on them frequently and tied up oc casioimlly to teach them to stand by the halter. A good warm stable witli plenty of room for the night am stormy days , and a good siyed yard ii the day time for exorcise is best foi health. If ono or inoro colts are dis po ed to bo quarrelsome , they should bo tied up nights , or have a sopnrnto stall Generally colts are better to bo loose ir the stable , but nn ill-natured ono wil injure others , and ho will not suiter i confined by the halter or otherwise The care for the six months after wean ing is what makes Iho horse , both in do voloping size nnd giving a good dispo sition. A colt soon learns that hi keeper is his friend nnd will not seer forgot him or his lessons. I Frequent handling after they arc on I year old , during the summer , wil lessen the work or training to harness which , if well developed , is best done ir I the fall after they are ono year old , b.y a little oxoreiso to a light wagon ; bu' they should never bo driven fast aa never enough to fatigue them , | At three and four years old drnf horses should bo ready for sale , and tc pay well , none should bo hold long after four years old. As with many other kinds of stock , early bales pay best. best.Tho The foregoing I have written fo breeders of draft horses without regard to perfect purity of blood , and for bur- ness. If ono wishes to make breeding stock a specialty , ho must bo just ns par ticular in having pure blood marcs ns in pure blood stallions , and moro par ticular as to typo. At this advanced Btugo of breeding ono should not keep u mule with n single doubt us to purity of blood , and that can only bo reached by n careful selection of males for hires. Another Important item is 'that neither sire nor dam should have any defect that could possibly bo transmitted to the colta. Colts that uro liable to inhorlt-bad qualities - ities uro noUnueh bettor thun . impure blood- , and that ia not udmibblblo under any consideration. If nil colts , thnt were uot perfect aS breeders were ens- trfttcd. there would be more profit in horse breeding. Many horses are nowhere hero and being imported that should not be bred from. Ono Shire horse I know has very imperfect eyes. By what reason can ono expect good eyes' from such a siror1 About nine-tenths , of the men breed ing horses imagine they know as much or moro than any other * man about horses , and at least 'three ' quarters of that number believe that a HU'.i'S ' hav ing all the diC rciit strains of blood from u nuiBlnng to an imported draft , that can bo got into her , if her- elf of good form and size , should bring largo line colt crossing half between am and sire. He will not consider that ho mare having many different strains ) f blood , the colt is liable to go back on ho meanest blood the mare had. Not 10 liable perhaps , ns the sire is of per- cot pedigree ; still there is n cliunce. Such breeders uro apt to change sires very time they 11 ml a mean colt on mud. Hence you find such a medley , .ml so many poor horses called scrubs ml plugs. Consistent and continued pure brccd- ng in ono line only , is the only way to nuke breeding for stock purposes pro- Itublo. I do not mean that a breeder huuld only breed ono strain of hor.-es. nit that each strain should bo pure. Ho nuy breed any or all bloods from the Ihetland pony to the Suffolk Punchbut , ot cross any blood. We can improve ny strain of blood in farm animals , and ivc to see good results , but , wo cannot irodueo a reliable strain of blood in two ifotimes. And why should wo try ? We itivo too many bloods already. Better ipend our energy and intelligence in mproving what wo now have. Possi- ) ly this may be considered a digression 'rom ' "profitable horse breeding1 but I jonsidor it one of the leading points in ho breeding of all animals to breed nire , always endeavoring to advance , lever to regrade. There is another class of farmers who an make horse brooding profitable with : i different strain of horses. I menu mall farmers who have a U'-e for their mares throughout the year , and run raihe u colt from them too. For u gen- j ml purpose farm horse , I do not tliink , ho heavy draft horse Is just what the majority of furmers want , nor do I bo- eve a farmer run do well breeding race torses , either for running ortrotting. Before trotting and imported draft lorses became so fa-hionable , there ised to bo thoroughbred imported run- ling horses and their cells in thiHcoun- , ry. Many of thc-m wore from sixteen 0 seventeen hands high nnd weighed rom 1,200 to 1,100 pounds. About ono : olt in 100 is u running horse and made 1 good record ; trotturx were seldom spoken of. There in about the simo difference in speed , strength , activity 'tnd endurance in horses that there is in men. It is not to be expected that every horouglibred hnr.su wi ill be a mining or trotting horse , but most of lii'in will make the best of road hor-es. After twojears olu I would drive them requiMitly , in fact work them much as he boys ought to bo worked , never enough to require their whole strength. but enough lo dovelopo the muscle and give them a degree of endurance. At three years old they may take their part n the farm work and any kind of road Aork that docs not require their whole strength. They may aKo have a few "cs ons under thq snilillo. Only give .hem proper training nnd not too hard lame-- work , and full half of them will be nearly perfect saddle horses. After four years old the colt , should pay bis expenses , and before six years old his dolts to his breeder should have ) eeu paid , and all work after that and : he price he sells for is the clear profit in horse breeding. There is no danger of a horse breeder becoming horse poor with thoroughbred stock. Such stock will always sell , if well bred and well trained. It is1 well in breeding thoroughbreds to fix on ono color that vou may oftener hiivo a pair of matched horses for sale. There may not bo so much money in breeding thtir- uighbred horses as in the draft horses , neither is there so much outlay. Both can bo bred profitably , if attentively and carefully eared for. But for good results in till strains , the one straight object must bo to breed pure. You can grade up with one blood , but you cannot with two bloods mixed. It is considered profitable to raise beef steers , and believe to keep a steer grow ing from birth to three yearn old will cost more than a colt will. Will he sell for as much or will ho improve us much after that ago ? I think not , and after that ago the colt will gain faster in value. 1 have dwelt more on breeding pure than some would think necessary , but to make any kind of stock pay best for growing them , the more at tention paid to pure blood the butter the profit ; for the care and feed is just as much onn poor uniinal as on a good ono , and the difference in the price when sold is the profit. For profitable horse breeding wo will adopt the following rules : First , that horse In-ceding is profit able , if correctly followed , and the colt well cared for , and that there is no time whore neglect is admissible. Second , nuver cross bloods to make a bettor breed of horses , and if native or cross blood mares are used , breed upon ono blood only. Third , that for profitable horse breed ing a.s a specialty the draft horse breeds will prove most profitable. Fourth , that ponies can bo bred with n paying profit , and that they and nil intermediate strains are also good , if bred pure ; and that all fancy strains had bettor bo bred as u specialty ynd not us a general farm slock. Fifth , that early training and good cure uro of the first and greatest im portance. The colt should have no fear of his owner or keeper. Sixth , that the thoroughbred horse is u good horse and one that wo cannot do without. Because , ho is n thorough bred , ho need not necessarily be a run ning or trotting horse , but ho can bo i1 good road horse , a good saddle horse , i good carriage and buggy hor&o , and t good horse for small bleeders to breed Irom. Seventh , that such abominations of hor-o flesh Unit no ono blood can bo distinguished , should never bo bred from , and their kind allowed to disap pear from the face face of the earth. Such in part is my idea -ol profitable- horse In-ceding. T1IK ItlOl ) ItlVKK ItOAl ) . Jlrcldcx Nut to Give the $ ; | 00,0 ( > 0 rVKked For.
