The Young Men's Christian Association of Cincinnati has established a workingmen's coffee-room, which would seem to be an institution capable of accomplishing much practical good. The Commercial says of it: ‘"In the heart of a manufacturing district of the city is located an institution, to which, at any hour of the day, up to ten o'clock at night, the tired mechanic may repair — enjoy, for the nominal price of ten cents, a cup of excellent coffee and a dish of good vegetable and meat soup, with the best of crackers, smoke his pipe or cigar, read the news of the day, converse with his fellow-workmen, or pass an hour at a game of dominoes, chess or draughts."’
