woman was sick and thought to be
dying, and no doubt leally was. The
family had been sent tor ami tin
neighbors had gathered in. She had
left her parting instructions and had
told all eoodbye except her husband.
Then the old gentleman, who had,'
under the stress of his impending
bereavement, taken a drop to steady
his nerves, knelt down to take his
farewell kiss. The result was tin
looked for. 'Look here, John,' said
the depaiting one, 'I smell your

I bis leticence falls in wiln what we

the President is lukewarm oi thu
subject of tariff reform and regards
the rail nay rat- problem as lar more
pressing. From a la-publican stand
pat point of view, it would, of conse,
be belter to prohibit all importations
and raise the whole revenue by i li

The President, in li ving to reform

tangled in his datis. His recent

In the two examples shown it has
actually cost no money to buy houses.
In the great majority of cases the

at Charlotte, N C. Part of the
woi king people live in their own

any other section. These are the
machinists, carpenters, bricklayeis
and workers at several "titer trades.
They -eiiil their children to school,
attend chinch, anel have all thu at
tributes of good citizenship. Another
class, the cottou-iiiitl operatives, iu
many cases live in company houses,
move frequently, save little money,
and give scant attention to schools.
Many of them are as good citizens as
woi king people who are
occupations, but in the main the
iplTcrcncc betwevu their condition
j and that of the former class of work
people is enough to be notable. It
is equally botiible that the machin
ists;, carpenters and bricklayers are
extensive patrons of the building
and loan association, while the cot-
I ton-mill operatives arc not. Some-
times it is cluimed that the wages of

I that of the average machinist or

A similar contrast exists in Penn

eiiaiiics ars usuallly members of

live in lioines which they own

usually in company houses, and are
inclined to strikes and squabbles.
No matter whether the member

living, or whither the disposition
to live better is the cause of the
membership, the advantages 'of thu
membership are apparent. It ap
pears also that a community of
