Of the two champions before the eyes
of the world, John L Sullivan is said to
be the most magnificently developed
specimen of physical manhood now on
the earth. But he has a bad temper and
loses his head, which puts him often at
a disadvantage. Kilraln, oh the other
hand, has not the magnificent physique
of Sullivan, but makes up for it by an
angelio temper and “an air of Intelli-
gence that almofet belies his profession."
He has so much oontroi that during his
training he was left to take care of i kn-
eel/ aa to his eating and drinking.

ployed in the mill. It will surprise no

The Guise Pamillstere.
Attempts at profit sharing with em-
ployes are being made here and there in
large industrial establishments, with a
view to ascertaining how far this plan
would go towards settling the question
of capital and labor.
At Guise, in France, in 1800, was
founded the Familistere, a profit sharing
factory. It was an establishment for
the manufacture of beating apparatus.
At its head was M Godin, who wrought
out the plan of it on the socialistic model
of Fourier About the same lime enthu-
siasts in America sought, earnestly to put
Fourier’s theories into practice. The
millennium was to descend on earth bod-
ily through living together in associa-
tions holding property in common and
performing labor share and share alike.
Hawthorne, Horace Greeley, Charles A.
Dana and Father flecker were some of
the powerful intellectualities fascinated
by Fourier’s shining schemes. Fifty
communities were formed, one place and
another, in the United States. Every
one of them failed. Father flecker
however, profited sufficiently by his ex-
perience to turn Roman Catholic, which
he was not in the beginning, and found
the great and influential order of Paulist
Fathers in the church.
Tin-one establishment that made a dis-
tinguished success financially was the
profit sharing factory at Guise. The plan
is this: Weekly wages is fixed at a sum
which will enable a workingman to live
and maintain his family decently. The
workmen receive higher wages than in
similar establishments elsewhere and the
hours of labor are shorter. When a man
is ill he is supported by the sick fund;
when too old to work he is pensioned.
At the end of the year O per cent, on the
capital invested is deducted from the
profits. Certain other amounts are de-
ducted for four funds—education, sick,
poor and pensions. What is left is called
“benefits." and it is distributed among
the employes. One-quarter goes to the
manager and heads of departments,
three-quarters to the workingmen.
M. Godin has been at the head of the
enterprise during the nearly forty years
of its existence. He says the scheme has
paid handsomely from the financial
point of view, llis salary as manager i
is h very large one, hut the factory pays |
that and all expenses, and yields a good
profit. A great saving is effected in the
waste and wear and tear of tools and
machinery hy the profit sharing method.
When workmen know it will add di-
rectly to their profits to take care of
things and be economical, they will do

it to congress, next across the water to
Berlin as one of the Bamoan commis-
sioners, and now it has gone before him
to the exalted seat qt minister to Ger-
many. Plainly there is dostiny in that
hang. It may he remarked in passing
that Mr. Phelps and Mr. Halstead, the
rejected candidate for minister to Ger-
many, aro warm friends. Mr. Phelps
cabled his friendly interest from Berlin
to America during Mr. Halstead's illness,
and the t wo were together in Germany
before Mr. Phelps' return.
Here they an- with us again, the an-
nual crop of them, particularly the LL.
D.’s and the D. D.’s. Every year they
are created hy tho dozen. It is safe to
say that now the north has more doctors
of laws and doctors of divinity than the
south has colonels and judges. Between
the two honors are easy. The titles are
becoming so cheap that anybody can se-
cure them, except perhaps women. To
their credit be it said that as yet there Is
only one female LL, D.—Dr. Amelia B.
Edwards—and no female doctor of divin-
ity at all.
Charles Dickens refused to bo knighted
by the queen of England. Henry Ward
Beecher refused the title «f doctor of
divinity. Possibly he thought he was
not good enough for it. Titles cannot
make large men any greater, neither can
they make small men great; and this is
