TllF. boy stood on the burning deck,
Whence all but he had fled;
He saw amid the cargo's wreck
A box, and, calling, said :
" Say, father, say if I may sit
Upon this box and wait?"
And then without his sire's permit,
Down on that box he sate.
For 'twas a box of Ivouv Soap,
And buoyantly it bore
That gallant child, who ne'er lost hope,
Safe to the sandy shore.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be " just as good cs the Mvory'i"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.

Tho long jetties, that reach out into
tho sea a milo or more to hold back
tho sands which drift with tho cur
rents, irorn a harbor at tho entrance of
tho canal, aniplo for anahorago. Of
the many vessels entering this portal
each is required to take on a pilot, and
submit to a tonnage measurement for
tho assessment of canal tolls, before
p issing through. Somo delay is like

fact that tho vessels must needs filo

ment of the L'lench oflicials that is bo
often preforred against them. Tho
dues are something like ten francs, or
about two dollars a ton, amounting to
a good round sum for a largo steamer.
Port Said, that guards tho northern
entrance of the canal and collects her
fees from the world's traflic, is a town
of considerable population. With
wiuo and regular streetfl, and with
somo substantial buildings, it has a
modern appearance. During the
building of tho canal, from which its
origin datos, it was mado tho base of
supplies, and suddenly becamo both
populous and ttniquitous. It has lost
a portion of its people, but tho evils of
those days still cling to its skirts. It
is a den of vice, and all forms of ini
quity and debauchery havo full swing
in tbo cafes and dives that lino the
streets. Tho morality of the place is
low, as might bo inferred from its ori
gin and tho wido ranges of races that
make up its people, which seems to bo
the Bcum of all landf. As a placo of
residence it is not to be thought of,
and in its harbor steamers mako as
short a stop as possible. Tho great
canal, bearing the iiamo of the isth
mus that it traverses, is a lasting mon
ument to tho memory of its engineer,
Do Desseps, even though his Panama
project has provon a failure. The idea
of building tho canal was not original
with him. It was an old notion, that
had been planned and pondered long
before his time, for which snrvoys of
the country had moro than once been
made. Even six hundred years before
our era a canal was actually in exist
ence, somewhat different in route, con
necting the Nile with the Red Sea,
not to mention tbo fictitious paesage
way constructed by Jules Verno for
that wonderful Nautilus of his. At
intervals along the lower part of the
present canal, portions of the old struc
ture may bo soen to day, partially
covered with tho shifting sands.
Tho country through whioh the
canal passe.', for tho most part is flat
ana sandy, somewhat broken in tho
interior by a rango of low hills. Tho
width of tho isthmus at this point from
sea to sea is eighty-eight miles. By
utilizing some small lakes on the
route, tlio aotual length of tho canal is
mado about twenty miles loss. With
sloping sides it has a width of sovonty-
two lcet at tne bottom, ana contains a
depth of water twenty-six feet. At
one point tho embankment is nearly
one hundred feet high with a summit
width of five hundred feet, varying in
slope with tho naturo of tne soil.
Tho opening of this trans-isthmian
waterway, twenty years ago, has re
volutionized tho carrying business of
the east. Tho fast tea clippers, of
whose racing and perilous passages
from China oxoitiog stories havo often
been told, aro things of the past. Tho
freight ratrs, that were paid to tho
fleetest of the clippers, wcro out of all
proportion to present transportation
charges, but were returned with inter
est to the shippers who succeed in get
t'ng the first cargoes of tho new tea
crop into European markets. The

of time now reduced by stoimships

supposed to Imooiihi old.
Owing to the provalonco of unfavor
able winds on tho Red Sea, whioh
seem to blow constantly toward thu
center forming head winds at least
half tho way to Rabel-Mandeb, tho
canal is unavailable to nailing vessels,
which aro still relegated to tho old
route. In tho tea trado tho oponlng
of the canal drovo most of thu ships
out of tho busineHH, and gave an im
palso to steam traflic, as tho discovery
of the Good llopo routo ltd to tbo de.

centuries. Tho stoamers aro now

As soon as possiblo tho Juniata fell
in lino at Port Slid with a long pro
cession of steamers, nud entered the
i:anl. The rido was not particularly
refreshing, and was quito dovoid of
excitement. Wo wero thieo days in
passing thiough, being delayed by tho
grounding of a steamer Botriowheru on
Iho way, which brought twenty five
vessels to a stand-still in tho broiling

which all tho water obtolnablo was
brought on tho backs of caraols from
tho ancient and distant wolls, a fact
that shows itself among tho natives in
tho meager uses to which it is put after
incir long acquired habits of economy.
In its streets ono is confronted with
squalor and beggary at every turn.
During my perambulations one day my
attention was drawn to a nativo school
house, whioh suggested the probability
that tho young idea, even in Suez, was
ndt considered unworthy of educational
advantages, however primitive. The
building was unpretentious and poorly
furnished. Tho small room was
crowded with children, all of whom
wero standing on tho floor apparently
studying out loud with all their might
A venerablo Arab presided ovr tho
youngsUirs, but what his functions
were it would be hard to tell surely
not to keep order.
In conversation with tho old Arabian
pedagogue, who had a slight smatter
ing of English, I was treated with on
interesting account of the passauo
of the children of Israel through tho
Rod Sea. Tbo placo of crossing Is
supposed to be near Suez, and is still
pointed out to tho credulous sight-seer.
Tho story as related by my new in
structor in Biblical lore, who might
possibly navo been an oyo-witnoss ol
tho scone if I may judge from his ap
pcaranco of antiquity, was that tho
Hebrew leader and his people waded
through tho water .at the head of the
sea, where" the' sea was low and at times
partially submerged, Iu his attempt to
overtake tho fleeiug multitude in es
capo from bondage, the king and his
army, with horses and chariots, wero
mirod in tho ford, at a time when a
strong wind, blowing from tho south,
sent tho huge waves rolling up tho sea,
by which all were OAerwlielmed and
The features of tbo country and tho
proyalcneo of winds at certain seaons,
"liiob sometimes raise tho tides thirty
feet, would seem to givo an air of
plausibility to the Arabian story. Tho
presumed knowledge of the age regard
ing natural phenomena and tho fact
that by passing a few miles to. tho
north Pharaoh could have intercepted
tho Israelites, mako greater tho proba
bility that tho crossing was farther
down tho gulf.
Alter all with its dull and uu
ntereflting phases, Suez is an obiectivo
point, historically and ceocraohicallv.
Sixty miles west is Cairo, now with

Dear Sir : In reply to your ques

boliove, as far as I am capable of
forming a judgement on tbo Bubjcct,
that high licence and other laws enact
ed to prescrvo tho people from intem
perance, if duly enforced, would bo
quito sufficient to nti in tho desired
end that is, as far as mero legislation
can attain it. Moro stringent laws
could bo enacted if found necessary,

who is an othcer ot tne Twentieth
Ward Prohibition Club, communioat-
cd with ArohbUhop Ryan on the sub
ject. Mr. Griflin, who is editor of tbo
1. U. Jl. U. .Journal, in tho last edi
tion ot his paper, claimed that tho

being br light into tho present contest
in an unfair way. Ho said that at tho
National Temperance Convention in
St. Inuis in 1884. Archbishop Ryan
had addressed a letter to Phillip A.
Nolan, tho general secretary, in which
ho said :
"If tho Union would follow tho
teachings of Catholic ethics and disa
vow tbo fanaticism of prohibition it
would bo productivo of muou healthy
good," which letter, Mr. Griflin claim
ed, had boon wrongly interpreted and
held up to Catholics iu this campaign
as warning them against prohibition as
a fanaticism. Mr. Griflin claimed that
it was used in tho paruo sense that tho
Archbishop uses tho words "bigotry''
and "preiudico" when ho calls upon
Catholics to "disavow tho bigotry and
preiudico of religion, and his com-
munication was to settle that point.

The Archbishop's answer was:
Dear Sir: In reply to your inqui
ry I bog to say that 1 havo not said
anything in regard to tho coming vote
on tbo prohibition amondment. With
tbo politics of tho question I havo
nothing to do. In regard to tbo et
hics of tho question 1 am constrained
to state that many false principles and
not a little fanaticism havo character-
ized tho movement in tho past I am
in favor of total i.bstinenco for all per
sons who desire or need it. I favor

tent with true principles and duo res

After The Saloon, What?
Tbo Prohibillotiiitfl In this stale aro
entering upon tbo campaign for tho
adoption of tbo amendment with
commendable zeal and determination,
llut In their earnestness to eeouro a
popular majority for tho moastiro thoy
should not forget to ask themselves
what is to take the placo of Uio saloon
in case tho prohibitory proposition is
oar.ied. Unless thoy mako prepara
tions for meeting this emergency tho
effott to eradicate the liquor oyll will bo
as great and lamentable a failure here
as it has been in many other states, and
roal temperance reform will be put
back for goncratlons.
The inistako most advocates mako is
in persuading themselves that thednly
things accessary to stop tho drinking
of intoxicants as a beverago aro to
place an amendment forbidding its
manufacture and sale in the Constitu
tion, to pas laws carrying tho amend
ment into effect and to elect officers to
enforce tho laws. They utterly ignore
tho fact that tho saloon is as much a
placo for social gathering and greeting
as it is for obtaining strong drink.
Tho advocates of free liquor aro wiser
in this respect than tho advocates ot
Prohibition and they gladly supply
the conveniences, and often luxuries,
to their customers which cannot bo
procured elsewhere for many limes tbo
worth of a drink ot liquor.
There la no state that has tried moro
earnestly to root out tho saloon and
stop tho salo of intoxicants than Iowa.
Its Legislature has given the temper
ance people ovcry Taw they asked for
until to-day the anti-liquor laws aro
declared by tho Prohibitionists them
selves to be "as strong and arbitrary as
tho language ot man can make(them
and as tyrannical iu their operation
almost as an edict of tho Czar of tho
caprice of the Saltan," and yet saloons
openly flourish in tho larger cities and
carloads ni beer and whiskey aro
brought into the state and sold.
When it is remembered that tho in
habitants of Iowa are of an unusually
intelligent and industrious character,'
this failure to mako tho law elTectivo
is all tho moro significant.
Tho blamo for this situation the Des
Moines Jleaister lays mainly at tho
door of tho Prohibitionists themselves.
It asks them "what they bavo dono or
tried to do by way of supplying to tho
people in need of a cheap social resort
an honest subsitute for the evil they de
stroyed. How many coffeehouses,
free reading-rooms and other public
social places have been provided in
placo of tho saloons? Has any city or
town in Iowa even two such social re
sorts as against tho scores of saloons
existing before! How many cities and
towns in Iowa havo even one such
substitute, aud how many of them bavo
made even an effort to supply Buch
substitute? How many of tho prohibi
tionists could report that, aside from
clamoring for more law, thev bad
stood up and dono their dnty in tiying
to make this reform successful and
Such questions from a state like Iowa,
where prohibition has been tho law for
nearly five years, and from a paper
which did more than any other influ
ence to securo the passage of tho law,
should cause the Prohibitionists hero
to stop and think what tho result of
tho adoption of Prohibition may bj.
It was discovered centuries ago that
tho social habits of man must be con
sidered in auy proposed reform, but
tlm modern Prohibitionists oviuontly
believo that they can ignore all natural
laws. If they wero wiser in this re
spect it is probablo that they would bo
vexed by fower failures in" ' trying to
destroy tho saloon bv orohibitorv laws
and constitutional amendment8.-Ves.
