in that il rti-tlon, and, passing under the
arch of Si. Crispin, finds herself in on of
thuKe solemn, peaceful inclosares that
surround moat of the ancient ecclesias
tical edifices In England. It seems as
though In a moment she has passed ont
of the working world Into city of the
dead; and she sits down on a flat tomb
stone, almost awe-struck by the thought
and the feeling it brings with it. Mot
everyone, though, is of the same opinion

t lady in the garb of a Sister of Mercy
ft lady in every sense of the word, from
the calm yet respectful manner in which
he receives her visitor to the courtesy
with which she enters the room and de
mands the stranger's business.
"I hope I am not taking a great liberty,'
ays Delia, "but I have been told thai
you have a poor old man under your roof
one whom you saw being stoned by
tocn rough little urchin and as I have
some to Winchester solely In search of
inch a person, I considered myself enti
tled to make inquiries of you."
"Tour end Justifies the means," returns
the sister, gravely, bowing her head. "It

but I must know more before I can Iden

"It has not been our province to exam

but as far as the remainder of your de
icriptlon goes, I think I may say it tallies
with the stranger st present under our
roof. But pardon me for asking if this

s-hich was the reason I bad him carried
a, and the doctor, who is with him now
thinks very badly of him."
"O! how I wish Mr. Le Mesurier were
ere!" cries Delia, impulsively.-
The sister starts and looks at her earn
etly. The action causes Delia to regard
lier in return. She is a very pretty worn

"Would you like to see the old man? lit
a unconscious, but it may be a satisfac
tion to you," says the sister after a pause.
"No, thank you. I would rather wait.
But it would be ft comfort to me to ex
plain the reason of my presence to you."
And whereupon Delia discloses as much
f her past history as is necessary to ac
count for her present interest in old
Strother, and the sister listens, as It is hei
mission to do, with all a woman's sympa
thy. "There is no doubt that, under the cir
sumatances, we shall be justified ir
earching the contents of this parcel," sh
replies; "and bow sincerely I hope it ma;
prove to contain what you are looking
for! Ton must have suffered greatly
Heaven send you the reward of your pa
Jence and affection."
Delia's eyes fill with tears.
At this moment the servant thrusts hei
lead into the opened doorway.
"If you please, sister, there's a strangi
gentleman wants to see yer."
"Perhaps it is my friend," suggestei
Delia; and at the sound of her voice Mr.
Le Mesurier steps forward, saying:
"According to yonr directions, Mrs
Manners, I "
But as he has got so far a low cry from
the Sister of Mercy arrests his sentence
and He turns hastily to confront her star

erta him. Delia, watching bis counte

This Improvement is especially ap

Can the Heart Really " Break T "
It appears that It is possible for the
heart to break, says a writer In A
swers. People who die of broken
hearts, so called, do not actually suc
cumb from disruption of the structural
arrangements. In this regard the name
Is a misnomer. It is generally applied
to people who die owing to Intense
mental suffering, from blighted affec
tions, or the loss of f rlaads. Thaekeray
has said that no man ever dies of a
"broken heart" In his love affairs, and
It is certain that In this respect the
term has no actual meaning. The heart,
however, may physically break, either
Trom sudden shock or orerstrsln.

OIL SPRINKLER FOR ROADS.
Aa Artaebmeat for a Connn Wasjna
Heldtna- a Barrel.
Recently civil engineers have given
senalderable attention to the applica
tion of oils to the roadbeds of electric
ud wagon roads. The Idea of using oil
on roadbeds originated with the steam
railroad corporations. - The purpose
was to prevent dust snd foreign matter
rising from the roadbed and getting
late the bearings and gearing of the
rolling stock. But several other bene
ficial results were obtained. After s
roadbed Is sprinkled with a surfacing
sf oil the loose matter Is not only so
weighted sad caked that it cannot rise
snd envelop wagons er carriages be
hind in a cloud of dust, but the bed
Itself Is strengthened. The oils form
with the earthy matter to a depth of
three to five Indies, according to the
treatment, and such parts of the bsl
last as are penetrated by the oils as
Bume a crusty condition, which is Im
pregnable to rain. and la a great meas
ure Is impregnable to frost. This state
of the roadbed Is highly serviceable.
Vnder ordinary conditions the earth
as It naturally exists in a carriage
road Is porous enough to receive and
ertaln oil to a depth of several Inches.
As oil and water do not combine, the
moisture Is driven off and the earth be
comes compact to such an extent that
any future deluge of water simply
flows off over It In order to build up
an oil-saturated surfacing of this type
certain operations are followed. Some
have gone to considerable expense in
the direction of sprinkling devices foi
this work, while others use a simple
oil sprinkling pipe leading from a cask
or oil barrel, which Is conveyed ovei
the road on a wagon. This' barrel Is
provided with tlie necessary control
ling devices, which are connected with
a lever regulated by the driver. A form
of sprinkling apparatus Is Joined to the
bottom of the tank, as in the illustra
tion, and this sprays the oil over the
roadbed. Several trips are made, until
the ballast is saturated near the top.
after which the crust ?orms, which will
last for years before another treatment
Is needed. Cheap grades of crude pe
troleum are used.
The drawing shows the plan usuallj
adopted for distributing oil over dirt
roads. It consists in placing a barrel
of crude oil, on blocks, upon a common
wagon, which la drawn over the sec
tions of the rood which are to receive

down, -SBfl-.the plpeA Is screwed In.
This pipe can project downward
through the wagon bottom or drop to
the ground over the rear. The connect

pipe. If a road surface eighteen feet
wide la to be covered, eae barrel of
crude oil will do for about eighty feet

To the Earl f Essex was granted the
privilege of wearing a nightcap In the
royal presence of Queen Mary, say?
the New Tork Telegram. The fact Is
mentioned In Miss Strickland's "Lives
of the Queens of England" as being
one of the odd rewarda bestowed by
Mary upon her friends after her acces

bad a greet fear of uncovering his head.
Considering, therefore, thattbe cold

bis nightcap In her royal presence. The
Queen not only gave him leave to wear
one, but two nightcaps If he pleased.

(Copyright. Louis Klopach. 1SW.
WisniNOTOs, D. C. In this discourse Dr.
Taltnage suggests bow the everlasting war
between capital and labor may be brought
to a happv end. The text Is I Corinthians
xll., 21, "The eye cannot say unto tlie
haml, I havo no need of thee."
Fifty thousand workmen In Chloat-i
seasing work In one day; Brooklyn stunned
by tbe attempt to halt its railroad cars;
Cleveland in the throes of a labor agita
tion, and restlessness among toller all
over the land have caused an epldem'.o of
strikes, and, somewhat to better things, I
apply the Pauline thought of my text.
Xoa have seen an elaborate piece of ma
chinery, with a thousand wheels and a
thousand bands and a thousand pulleys all
controlled by one great wnterwhnel, the
machinery so adjusted that when yon Jnr
one part of it you jar all parts of it. Well,
human society Is a great piece of mechan
ism controlled by one great and ever re
volving foree the wheel of Clod g provi
dence. You barm one part of the maohin
ery of society, and yoa harm all parts. All
profession? Interdnpendent. All trades In
terdependent. All classes of people Inter
dependent. Capital and labor Intorde-
Eendont. No such thing as independence,
lives cannot kick Lazarus without hurt
ing bis own foot. Tbey wbo threw Sliad
raoh into the furnace got their own bodies
scorched. Or, to oome back to tbe llgnre
of the text, what a strange thing it would
be if tbe eye should say: I oversee tbe en
tire physical mechanism. I desplsq the
other members of tbe body; if there Is any
thing I am disgusted with. It is with those
miserable, low lived hands. Or, what if
the hand should say: I am the boss work
man of the whole physical economy; I have
no respect for tbe other members of tbe
body. It there is auytliing I dospipe. It is
tbe eye seated under the dome of tbe fore
head irotng nothing but look.
I come In, and I ware the flag of truce
between these two contestants, and I say,
"Tbe eye cannot say to tbe hand, I have
no need of thee.' "
That brings me to the first sii question,
and that is, that labor and capital are to
be brought to a better understanding by a
complete canvass of the whole subject.
They will be brought to peace when they
find that they are lden leal in their inter
ests. When one goes down, they botb go
down. When one rises, they both rl-e.
There will be an equilibrium arter awhtie.
There never bas been an exception to tbe
rule. Thai nilci, JSaOr.d -for one class of
society eventually will be good for "aii
classes of society, and that which is bad
lor one class of society will eventually and
in lime be bad for all. Eve. y speech that
labor makes against capital postpones the
day of permanent adjustment. Every
speech that capital malces against labor
postpones the day of permanent adjust
ment. When capital maligns labor, it is
tbe eye enrsing the hand. When labor
maligns capital, It Is hand curbing the eye.
As far as I have observed, the vast major
ity of capitalists are successful laborers.
If tbe capitalists would draw their
glove, you would see tbe broken finger'
nail, the scar of an old blUtor,ytne
stiffened Anger joint. The great Ju -lisbers
of tbe country for tlie aw5t part
were bookbinders, or typesetter;, on small
pay. The great carrlagaaufncturers
for the most part eiurf.papered wagon
bodies in wheel wrinlia gbop-t. While, on
the other band, laali our iarga manufac
turing establlshaients you will find men on
wages who oboe employed a hundred or
.lve hundred hands. The distance between
capltftland labor Is not a great gulf over
which Is swung it Niagara suspension
bridge; it is only a step, and the capitalists
are crossing over to become laborers, and
the laborers are crossing over to become
onpltallsts. Would Ood they might shake
hands while they cross. On the other
hand, laborers are the highest style of capi
talists. Where are their Investments? In
banks? No! In the rnilromls? Nol Their
nerve, their mus.-le, their bone, their me
shnnlcal skill, their physical health are
maRnillcont capital! lie who has two eyes,
two ears, two feet, two bands, ten fingers,
has machinery that puts Into nothingness
sarpet and screw and cotton factory, and
ill the other implements on the planet.
Tbe capitalists were laborers, the laborers
wero capitalists. The sooner we under
stand that the net tor.
Again, there Is to come relief to the la
boring classes of this country through co
operative nssociatbtns. I mn not at this
moment speaking of trades cnlons, but of
that plan by which laborers put their sur
plus together and become their own cap
italists. Instead of being dependent upon
the beck of this capitalist or that capital
ist, they mn usee their own nfTalrs. In
England and Wales there are 813 co-operative
associations. They have 310,000 member!-;
they have a capital of 18,000,000, or
what corresponds to our dollars and they
io a business annually of $63,000,000.
Thomas ISrussi-y, one of the foremost men
In the British Tarllamcnt, on the subject
jays: "Co-operation is tbe one and the only
relief (or the laboring populations. This
Is the path," he savs, "by which they are
:o come up from the hand to the mouth
ityle of living, to reap the rewards and tbe
Honors of our advanced civilization." Lord
Derby and John Stuart Mill, wbo gave half
their lives to the study of tbe labor ques
tion, believed in co-operative institutions.
"But," says some one, "haven't these in
stitutions sometimes been a failure?" Yes.
Every great movement has been a failure
at some time. Application of the steam
power a failure, electro telegraphy a fail
ure, railroading a failure, but now thi
chief successes of the world.
"But," snys some one, "why talk of sur
plus being put by laborers Into co-operative
associations when the vast multitude
of toilers of this country are struggling for
their dnily bread and have no surplus?" I
roply, put into my band the money spent
by the laboring classes of America for ruin
and tobacco, and I will establish co-operative
associations In all parts of this land,
some cf them mightier than any flnancinl
Institutions of the country. We spend In
this country over rlOO.OOO.OOO everv year
for tobacco. We spend over 1,500,000.000
directly or Indirectly for rum. The labor
ing elnsses spend theirshare of this money.
Now, suppoe tbe laboring man who has
been expending his money in those dircc
tlons should just add up bow much he has
expended during these past few years, and
then suppose that that money was put Into
a co-operative association, and then sup
pose he should have all his friends in to:l,
who had made the same kind r.f expendi
ture, do the same thing, and that should
be added np and put Into a co-operative
association. And then take all that money
expended for overdress and overstyle and
overliving on tbe part of toiling people in
order that they may appear as well as per
sons who have more income gather that
a I np and vou could have co-operative as
sociations all over this land.
I am not saying anything now abont
trades nnions. Yon want to know what I
think of trades nnions. I think tbey are
most beneficial in some directions, and
tbey have a specific object, and In this day,
when there are vast monopolies a thou
sand monopolies concentrating the wealth
Of the people Into the possession of a few
men unless the laboring men of this coun
try and all countries hand together tbey
will go under. There Is a lawful use of a
trade nnlon. It it means sympathy In time
of sickness, if it means finding work foi
people when they are out of work, if it
means the improvement of the financial,
the moral or the religious condition of the
laboring classes, that Is all right. Do not
artists band together in an art nnlon? Do
not singers band together In Handel and
Hadyn societies? Do not newspaper men
band together In press elnbs? Do not
ministers of religion band together in con
ferences and associations? There is not in
all tho land a city where clergymen do not
come together, many of them once a week,
to talk over affairs. For these reasons you
Should not blame labor guilds. When they
are doing their legitimate work, they are
most admirable but when they oome
around with drum and fire and nag frrv
their scaffoldings, from tbelr faotori-X
then they are nihilistic, then tbey are com
munistic, then they are barbaric, then they,
are a curse. If a man wants to stop work'

whatever name they put tbelr means to
gether. Suppose they take tbe money that
they waste In rum and tobacco and use it
for the elevation of their families, for tbe
education of their children, for tbelr moral,
intellectual and religious improvement;
what a different state of things we would
have in this country and they would have
In Great Britain!
Do yon not realize the faet that men
work better without stimulant? You say,
"Will you deny the laborlug men this help
which they get from Btrong drink, borne j
aown as tuey are witn many anxieties and
exhausting work?" I wonld deny them
nothing that Is good for them. I would
deny tbem strong drink, Il I had tbe power,
because It is damaging to them. My father
said: "I became a temperance man In
early life because I fonnd tbat in ths
harvest Held, while I was naturally weaker
than the other men, I could bold out longer
than any of them. They took stimulnnt
and I took none."
Everybody knows they cannot endure
f treat fatigue men who indulge in stlmu
ants. All our young men understand
that. When they are preparing for t'te re
gatta, or the ball club, or the athletic
wrestling, they abstain from strong drink.
Now, suppose nil this money tbat is
wasted were gathered together and put In
to co-operative institutions. Ob, we
would have a very different state of things
from what we have now.
I remark again, tbe laboring classes of
this country are to find great relief when
they learn, all of the: learn, forecast and
providence. Tost numbers of them pnt
down tbelr Income and tbey put down
their expenses, and if the Income meets
the expenses tbat Is all tbat Is necessary,
t know laboring men who are In a perfeet
fidget until they have spent their la-t dol
lar. They fly around everywhere until
they get It spent. A case came under my
observation where a! (young man was
receiving S700 a year and earned it
by very bard work. Tbe marrl igo day
came. The bride had received 503 a an
inheritance from her grandfather. She
pnt the (500 in wedding equipment. Then
the twain hired two rooms on the third
story. Then this man, who had most ar
duous employment, just ns much as he
oould possibly endure, got evening em
ployment so he could earn a few dollars
more and by this extra evening employ
ment almost extinguished his eyesight.
Why did he take this extra evening em
ployment? Was it to lay by something for
arainyday? Not Was It to get a lire in
surance so that If he should die his w fo
would not be a pauper? Nol It was for
the one purpo-e of getting bis wife a 1M
