A Forty Ago Met
Mow.
The old world custom of retiring
from business after a competency had
been secured, and which is yet ob-
served abroad, was still honored in
the observance here by our own
men not very lone ago. When
a merchant had accumulated
more or less, he was rich,
sought relief from the cares
and labors of active trade in retire-
Generally the most trusted and
respected of the concern
became, upon easy terms,
of the retiring members.
But men of active business seldom
retire now, and chiefly, it may be as-
because it is no longer
for any one to acquire a competency.
In the old and, it seems to ninny, the
Better times, the habits of living were j
simpler, and a competency was a de-1
terminable thing, which at present it
appears not to be. Fifty, forty, thirty j
years ago the man was accounted rich I
who had amassed a clear He
could retire upon that at any time and
be assured of an income, represented
by absolutely safe at per cent,
or a year, which enabled
him to live in generous comfort and
even luxury. A now
safe income of not more than
or a year. Besides that,
it is the almost universal ambition of
the man who has made a hundred
thousand to make a million and of that
one who has made a million to make
five, ten or a hundred millions.
There is practically no limit to in-
fortunes in these times, and
until the man of business who has the
least has made the effort to acquire as
much as he who has the most the
question of retirement is not con-
The custom of retiring
from active pursuits with the ac-
of a competency was
good not only for the merchant it
was good for shrewd, faithful,
gal, ambitious who
to his business and thus
cured a chance of winning fortune,
which chance is now denied them.
The trouble is that in these days no
one knows when he has enough, and
no one feels that he can
step aside and give opportunity of
fortune to the young men about him
who are struggling for place. Not
over but over anxiety, over
ambition to secure great fortunes, is
breaking down the health and killing
a great many people in these days.
Enjoyment, rest and health are freely
paid by the shrewdest of men for a
foremost place among the winners of
wealth. Money, even a great
deal of it, is a good thing, but it is as
possible to pay too much for it as for
any other thing in the
Ledger.
A Large Clock.
A new clock, weighing two and a
half tons, has been placed in the tower
of the Glasgow university, similar to
the great clock at Westminster. The
frame of the clock newly erected is
horizontal and of cast iron planed. It
is feet long, feet wide and feet
in depth. It is supported on beams
built well into the wall of the tower,
so as to obviate vibration. The wheels,
which are of gun metal, can be moved
separately, as the pivot holes are
screwed to the frame. The main
wheels of tho striking and quarter
trains are twenty inches in diameter,
and attached to them are cams to lift
the hammers, which are fixed in iron
frames connected with the clock by
cranks, and having a check spring to
vibration. The weight of the
that strikes the hour is
pounds, and it is lifted ten inches.
There is an automatic apparatus at-
to the clock which stops the
quarter peals at night and starts them
in the morning. The escapement of
the going part is known as the double
three legged gravity, invented by Lord
The pendulum is of zinc
and iron, to counteract influences of
temperature. Tho tubes are arranged
so that the expansion of one raises the
center of gravity, while that of the
other lowers it The bob of the pen-
is cylindrical, and weighs
and the beat is one and one
seconds. The and
appliance of the nobleman already
named maintains the motion while the
clock is being wound. J. B. Joyce

Chinese Id America.
The outbreak in Portland shows that
in other places besides San Francisco
there exists between gangs of ruffians
a never ending contest for supremacy
over the Chinese population. The
power of tho is the only
one which the Chinaman
understands and fears, and his conduct
is regulated by it to a greater extent
than by the laws of the country in
which ho lives. In whatever city there
is found a considerable number of
Chinamen, there tho Chinese high-
binder will find material for his call-
and there he will exist exercising
an influence which extends even to the
white employers of Chinese labor.
In San Francisco the number of
these lawless Chinamen is very large,
and they are the virtual rulers of Chi-
Were tho Mongolian
larger the gangs of murderers
would greater, and the subjection
of the coolie would be more complete.
Tho well being of tho Chinaman now
in this country, as well as of the white
among whom he lives, has been
by the exclusion act. Those
Chinamen arc most prosperous and
happy who have fewest of their own
race surrounding them. They are
benefited by isolation from their Mon-
brothers. The greater the
of Chinese that congregate to-
the lower their condition, the
more degraded their habits, the more
abject their slavery and the greater
the danger to which They the
country. The total cessation of Chi-
immigration will prevent the
formation in other cities of colonies
of aliens governed by thieves and cut-
throats, whose battles for supremacy
endanger the lives of law abiding
