Fire minutes to 7.
Dow's great factory waa as silent as a
churchyard The great, broad belts
hung limp. The monster flywheels
seemed to be so many obstructions bar
ring the light. The long shafts that
transmitted power to the hundreds of
machines looked like cold rays of light
The machinery had a grim look. Much
of it was as forbidding as the teeth that
grin in the jaws of a ekrill That waa
the impression it made on Dr Jayne as
be accompanied John Dow. Jr., through
department after department.
"How many people do you employ?"
''Nearly 600 on oar pay roll—men and
'Keeps yon pretty close. 1 suppose
you never get a holiday."
Dow Jr. laughed. *On the con
trary, my father goes away whenever
he desires a change 1 go off every fall,
hunting and tishing. Btdy away two and
three weeks— been away six: and the
shop never missed us."
Doctor Jayne'a look of wonder in
vited the explanation, given with par
donable pride
"System—method, doctor if 1 do
say it myself, Dr Jayne, you won't find
a factory in the country, giving employ
ment to as many hands where every
thing runs as smoothly as at Dow's
We do everything methodically here—
all the departments divided upon system
atic lines, regulated like clockwork."
"Tee," said the doctor, '1 have been
told a thousand miles away from home
that Dow is regarded as the model es
tablishment of the country.r
"The only way to run a factory," said
Dow, Jr., in a matter of fact way that I
impressed the doctor, who was making
a round of tho workshops in quest of in- i
formation he deemed essential to the
completeness of a book he had in hand,
"How do you keep track of your peo- I
pie? So many coming and going, 1 sup
pose you don't know your own opera
Dow, Jr., took out his watch, glanced
from it to a clock at the end of a room
they were ra and said:
'Just wait a minute and you'll see.
Stand near this window, doctor.''
The doctor observed a number of men
and boys coming into the factor}* yard
All carried dinner pails or baskets in i
their hands They trooped into the mill i
in droves, by twos and threes, singly
laughing talking, pushing and shoving
each other until they entered the de
partment the doctor was in There the i
flow -,'ood natural chaff ceased as the i
ope- took' tbeir places at the ma
eh .J uiey attended to As they paasad
the timekeeper s office the doctor heard
the timekeeper and his assistant repeat
ing in monotonous tones i
'Thirty-six. seventeen, three hundred

dred as the arrival of the operatives i
waa recorded.
Suddenly gong sounded—the doctor
started simultaneously the long, nar
row belts and the big. broad belts be-
came taut, the monster fly wheels re
volved the long line of pulleys over

little champed as they seemed to whet
their teeth ou red hot and cold iron.

monsters and tossing the iron out again

they had absorbed the kernel The

pounding Utafeuing. the whirling
pulley* aii« vcentne movements of the
machinery v! led to the confusion
precisely, and to a sec­
ond every woman and boy in Dow's
factory was work
Doctor Jayne readily excused Dow
Jr. who was called away by a hand
some young fellow, friend evidently
Iti'i looked woudenngly at the opera
Jtioti* of a machine beside him. A very
small boy attended the machine. The
movement* of the small boy's arms
bands were so regular that Doctor Jayne
insensibly arcocuu*l turn with the ma
chine It wan difiu-nlt to tell where the
machine euitcO and the boy began. The i
malt toy orrsr osade a false MO V«. Tks
bit of iron was lifted with one hand
from one point, the same piece in
another form was caught up dexterously
thirty seconds later from the machine
although seemingly the same instant.
However, as the machine manipulated
thirty pieces in a minute, it followed, as
a matter of course, that the small boy
was not slinging the same piece of iron
at himself through the machine as rap
idly as appearances indicated. The small
boy's eyes were never off the machine,
bis hands seemed to be a part and parcel
of it It made the doctor tired to look
at him. He lookod at the boy-machine,
or macliine-bov fully ten minutes before
ho discovered that the boy's foot was a
part of the mechanical operation
Hands, eyes, feet—all were going—all
on the jump.
"Curious, isn't it?"
Doctor Jayne turned to find Dow. Jr.
at his elbow.
"That boy makes 150,000 movements
every day First he picks up the blank
from the tray, puts it in the groove,
while he removes with his other hand
the piece coming out here. If you notice
every time he reaches out his right.hand
he lifts his left foot, presses this treadle
and ho has to toss the piece from the
machine to the elevator
"What's his name?"
•'You'll have to ask htan. All we
know is that he runs number eleven."
"He doesn't look eleven." said the doc
tor. Dow, Jr., 6niiled.
"Wo have them at all ages." Then,
addressing the boy: "You'll have a holi
day tomorrow Well shut down."
The small boy blinked both eyes and
nodded, and Dow, Jr., led Dr Jayne
through the other departments.
When the doctor returned to his office
he tried to estimate the probable length
of time that the very small boy who
operated number eleven in Dow's fac
tory could keep it up. There were
fifty-two weeks in a year, sixty working
hours in a week in round numbers.
Nearly 50,000,000 motions in a year.
Then the doctor drew a mean in esti
mating the pulse—what looked like a
very neat calculation caused the doctor
to ponder profoundly If a man or wom
an had a little rest—recreation now and
then—it wouldn't be so bad, but the out
look for the small boy Was not encour
Somehow the doctor could not dis
miss the small boy from his mind the
next day. He heard the whirling, whirl
ing, whirling of the pulleys the clamp,
clamp, clamp of iron smelled the oil
that greased the million bearings in
Dow's factory The impression made
by the very small boy and the ravenous
machine was not a pleasant one.
He was sitting alone before a ruddy
fire (he was a bachelor) when the calcu
lations growing around the small boy
were broken by a summons. The sum
mons was unexpected, but Dr. Jayne
was one of the professional men who be
lieve they owe something to their fellows.
He accompanied his visitor to a squalid
part of the city, ascended a long, dark
flight of stairs, and was ushered into a
meanly furnished room, provided with a
lounge and an old fashioned truckbed.
The lounge was falling apart. The
truckbed had a thin straw tick on it
and a ragged quilt—no blanket. On the
tick lay a boy with his face to the walL

An old, old woman, with snow white
hair, eyes dimmed with age and palsied
hands, rose from the lounge with diffi
culty. and in a voice scarcely louder
than a whisper said:
"It's—like—a fever, «ir."
She stood beside the bed as the doctor
spoke to the boy "Turn your face this
way and look at me."
The little limp form turned slowly
over and Dr. Jayne looked down into
the bright eyes, on the burning cheeks
of the lxy he had observed in Dow's fac
tory. The doctor looked at him intent
ly, felt his pnlse, then, in low. measured
"A crime! a shameful crime! Over
tasked—murdered—slow murder—mur
dered by inches!" Then, turning to the
old woman, "What made these marks
on his wrists and arms?"
The boy turned his face away. The
old woman looked distressed. Her hands
were moving up and down her faded
gown they caught each other and fell
helplessly away as she answered in that
loud whisper that was more effective
than any volume of sound uttered by
human lips.
"His father—my son—beat him!''
'What! Beat a little fellow like that?"
The doctor, spite of his familiarity
with degradation and brutality, was very
"My soii' drinks—does nothing but
drink. These holidays, sir—peoile treat
him—he—get» drunk—somehow and
scolded—scolded so, and—1 couldnt help
it, sir—I couldn't.'"
Her wretched gown was up at her
eyes, but the doctor was occupied with
the boy There was something here
worse than fever. The boy's nervous
system had received a severe shock. He
questioned the boy closely, went to a
drug store near by, returned, adminis
tered some of the medicine he brought,
left instructions with the grandmother
and returned to his office, reflecting
upon the problem of life more seriously
than he had ever done before, and he
had the reputation of a very consider
ate, thoughtful man
He visited the fever strickcn boy early
the aext morning.
"He—didn't sleep more—than an—
hour, sir, all flight," the grandmother
whispered wringing her bony hands
The doctor looked at his patient, who
was tossing his hands and moving his
"He's—been—flighty all the time."
The doctor turned the torn quilt down,
felt the boy's body, his head timed
pulse then suddenly turned to the win
dow and looked out.
When the old woman spoke to bin he
as* her look with a steady gmm. Tbera
was no sign of emotion his voice was a
trifle lower perhaps.
"It is very hard to deteRtainoi. Hie
chances are against him. Have you any
other means than this boy enpplied
The old woman shook her head. The
doctor made a mental note. Then he
administered a powder, looked long and
earnestly at his patient, turned and left
the house with a preoccupied air
He returned again at noon.
A bleary eyed wretch, with bloat©!
face and shambling gait—a creature
whom prolonged debauchery had robbed
of all that is noble and spirited in man
lurched against him in the entry.
"Are you—you the—doctor's been
tending my kid?"
Dr. Jayue shoved him aside with as
little concern as he would push a dog
from his path, but before he had stepped
on tho stairs the drunken wretch added:
'Cos—cos—you're not wanted any
longer. The boy's dead—dead, d'ye
The doctor was going up stairs sud
denly he paused, descended and ad
dressed a slatternly woman,
who stood in a doorway.
"Is the boy dead?"
"Died half an hour ago.'
Dr. Jayne walked away. As he waa
returning to his office a familiar voice
accosted him. He turned to meet the
familiar voice of Dow, Sr.
"Heard you looked through my fac
tory the other day. My son spoke of it.
Just home from Colorado. Wonderful
country out there. You found ever)
thing in apple pie order in my factor}
I'm satisfied at heart. Took me twelve
years, sir, twelve years to perfect my
system. I don't mind telling you—you
are not in the business—that after all is
said that can be said, the chief reason,
the real secret of my success has been—
you can't guess what, doctor. Ill wager
you anything you can't."
"1 need not try," said the doctor.
••Well—in two words—I've always
kept my machinery in repair. I used to
rely on two machinists when 1 had OCX)
hands. 1 doubled them—it paid—put
another on—gained right along by it
now 1' have B00 hands, how many men
do you think I have looking after the
machinery alone—I mean, keeping it in
proper repair?"
will not venture to guess, Mr. Dow.r

The Traveling Haa.
Whatever he may have beext ln the
past the traveling man of today occupies
a most important position in relation to
mercantile affairs. He is numbered by
many thousands and represents the in
terests of many millions. He is found
in all classes of business, representing all
lines of wares, and his influence upott
matters even outside of his own vocation
is strongly felt. The traveling man of
today, to be successful must, in the first
place, be a gentleman in deed and in
action. Then he must be possessed
business acumen and tact, be ambitious,
active and tireless. He finds it to his ill*
terest to keep informed on current topic##
and is a storehouse of newB and informa
tion. He must be pleasing in addreas and
neat in appearance.
All these he is, as he now exists, in tha
best type. In the drug business the trav
eler is a very important factor. Them
are about 1,250 directly connected with
the wholesale drug trade of this country,
this number not including proprietary,
pharmaceutical or druggists' stindriea
houses. These 1,250 travelers are an ex
pense to the wholesale druggists of about
$3,000,000, and we may be sure that if
they were not a necessity and of valn&
commercial salesmen would not exist.-*

Mr. R. H. Mohr, the ventriloquist
went through a strange experience the
other day. In one of the laboratories of
the Harvard medical school he sub
mitted to an examination of his throat
and chest by a number of physiological
experts, to determine what special ton*
matrons gave him his peculiar powers.
The experts are uncommunicative
concerning the results of the examina
tion, and Mr, Mohr, who is not a phys
iologist at all, did not learn much about
"They put mirrors down my throat,"
he said. "They led me by narrow pas
sages into a dark chamber, and what
they did there I don't know. After i|
was all over they told me that my lar»
ynx was flatter than that of other met
and shaped something like a woman's^
and also that one of the stops in mf
throat was drawn downward instead of
upward by the connecting muscles.
"1 can't make much out of that ex
planation, but 1 can 'make a living ou|
of my peculiar throat just the same."
Then he threw his voice under the tar*
ble and laughed hoarsely.—Boston HeiH

An actor, now famous, made his first
appearance on the stage in a provincial
city where theater goers were accustom
ed to make their disapproval felt whea
an entertainer did not succeed in please
ing them. He was young and nervoui
and failed dismally in the part he was
endeavoring to piesent, aad soon found
himself the target for an assortment of
objectionable bric-a-brac. When the
uproar was at its highest one of his disr
gusted auditors flung a cabbage head at
him. As it fell on the stage the actor
picked it up and stepped forward to the
footlights. He raised his hand to com
mand silence, and when his tormentor®
paused to hear what he liad to say, ex
claimed, pointing to the cabbage head
"Ladies and gentlemen, I expected to
please you with my acting, but 1 confess
1 did not expect thatx any (me in the
audience would lose his head oyer it."
He was allowed to proceed without
further molestation.—P. McArthur in
