So they aro, tho children of our best families; they aro overstuffed and underfed. They bo gin lifo almost at ouco on cookies and meat and other foods that do not nourish them at all, and servo only to destroy tho digestive organs. Thoy eat at all times tnd whatever they choose, and aro thereby underfed even when gorged. It Is weil known that only that food which is assim ilated and used by tho blood becomes nutrient or nourishing matter. 'I ho child may havo far too little of this when con stantly ctitiu'r This is peculiarly true if allowed to overtax tho brain. Tho child has nouo too much blood to do tho build ing work, but this is taken away to tho brain to do a vast deal too much thinking and imagining That is what I mean by underfeeding and overworking I sin cerely believe that at present wo aro moro In need of laws forbidding tho overbrain tasking of children than of laws forbid ding their employment under 12 in facto ries and for undue hours. Wo shall shortly como to seo that our educating process neud.saieguaixis lor ino children instructed to It. It will bo well when wo como to Her bert Spencer's Idea that real education shows "in what way to treat tho body; in what wax to treat tho mind; in what way to manage our affairs; in what way to utilize all the sources of happiness which naturo supplies; how to uuo all our facul ties to tho greatest advantago to our selves ami lo others; how to live com pletely." In all these respects tho rights of children etend, and if tho state, is right in intertering at all to sccuro com mon education it is obligated to interfere to tho extent that will secure for tho child all that atruo education involves. Does our prest it system cover tho case, or oven pretend or purpose, to cover it? Take, for instance, the ono item, "How to treat tho body." Is it not a fact that 99 out of 10U cht'ldren aro left to find out whatever they do iind out about tho body and how to u.-o it by stumbling upon facts through bitter eip'erieuco of diseaso and pain?

On the mountain trail this distinct species of mule was never known to fall, although ho has an exasperating and blood curdling way of stumbling along over it that would raise tho hair on end of a li'ilil he.-uleil mmv Mrmv n time I have watched the mule I was compelled to rido with a view of discovering his methods of trying to scare ino to death, as payment for past injuries. Often times the trail would lead past dizzy heights or cliffs, whero ono could look sheer down far enough to bo deadjbeforo ho reached the bottom should ho fall, and every few feet along tho trail, of a foot to a foot and a half in width, it would have tumbled in a foot or so and again taken up the original inclination of the mountain, or about that of the leaning tower of Pisa. Here tho initio would always bo sure to stick ono foot and stumble a little bit, but always re gain its equilibrium at tho next step, having clearly done it intentionally, and for no other purpose than pure cussed ness. One can-imagine tho cool Alpino zephyr that is wafted up tho dorsal verlebno with sufficient forco to blow tho hair straight up on end. If you have touched tho beast during tho last throe or four days with tho whip or dug into its sides with thu spurs when it was absorbed in melancholy rellec- tions. it will bo suro to remember it when ...... you aro climbing over the comb of a cliff i D.OOO feet high, and nt the least move-! incut of your feet or twitching of your fingers it will throw its head high in tho ! air like a hound on the scent and go stumbling over every pebble and bladoof grass on the dangerous wav, evidently trying to make you regret that you had tried to punish so delicate n creature. At punish any other time you can turn double somersaults on its back, or act liko n rav ing maniac, and it will not increase its funereal march a foot a day as a result of your actions. Whenever a trail leads exceptionally near a cliff, boforo it turns on the reverse grade down or up hill, the Mexican mule never fails to go within an inch of tho crest and let a hind leg over with a slight quiver as it turns around ah ineso ni( Ml these mountain trailsaro full of little. I round, nam stones about tho size of mar- bles and larger, hidden underneath a car peting of pino needles. Theso aro liable to make n mule stumblo if two feet aro on stones at once; but this is very rare, although they always go sliding over them on the steeper trails. It is wonderful how theso rotund rocks, hidden under tho pino needles on tho trail or oil of it, will throw a human be ing prostrato if ho dismounts u few iiiin utes to take a walk on a sloponnd stretch his stiffened limbs. Of courso tho mule, under headway, walks over them boforo it can stop. Hobnails in shoes, nor anything of man's make, help to avoid them. A PLEASANT PASTIME. There is another pastimo in which tho Mexican mulo delights, and in which you won't. It likes to doviate enough to go under overy low blanched treo on the trail, and so universal is this trait of character that the trail seems to lead from ono low treo or vino to another, just as the mules seem n mind to mako it. The dodging of limbs and branches among the pines, cypresses and oaks in tho highlands was not so bad, but down iu tho tierras calientes, or hot lands, whero bratnbly mosquito and thorny vines were tearing crescents out of your clothes until you looked liko a group of uinioii iith uot y ' ta iuulii luuiu monotonous I'ho boast I was compelled to ride had ono car cut off near tho head and looked topheavy in tho extremo.

Saturday Review. Tho Charm of a Sweet Voire, I met tho other day one of tho most fashionable women in the city, and tho thing about her that charmed mo most was her perfectly trained voice. It was low and melodious, never raised abovo a certain pitch, but her enunciation was perfectly clear. A sweet, low voico is one of the most boduelivo charms iu a woman, and yet how seldom ono is found. Tho majority of women do not seem to realize this, and one's ears aro constantly being tortured by tho sound of loud, shrill voices. At a restau rant where I frequently (lino comes ! very often a pretty young woman with her mother, and when I see her coming I want to go She .has a high pitched, cracked, old woman's voice, that takes away my appetito and sets my nerves on edgo. At a recent afternoon reception n handsome lady entered and began to talk. As soon as sliu began overy ono elso stopped and listened, for her voico was so loud and harsh that it drowned every other She was clever, and what she said was worth listening to, but it was torture to the sensitive ear. Tho spell of a beautiful face is often broken by a harsh, uncultivated voice, while a sweet voice almost makes a plain face pretty I would turn round iu a crowd to discover the owner of an attractive voice, but I would not (urn round iu the street to c:.tch a second glimpse of a pretty face Pretty faces aro common enough, one sees them everywhere, but n thoroughly rcliucd, cultivated and sweetly modulated voice is indeed rare.
