learning should give the mind added

It seems strange indeed that nearly
sixty young people ia tbe ninth, tenth
and eleventh years ol school work hsd
never heard ol tbe stranger who, when
in a strange land, sad, lonely and
friendless, peoned the lines which have
tiuck aobord in tbe universal human
besrt, and i'mmortalixfd bis name. It
is a peculiar comment upon the iullu-
ence thrown around our young peopl
that sixty of them now in tbe pursuit
ol higher eduoation, had not heard ol
tbis man wbo flit 1 wo years ago, spent
bis last hour homeless and alone on
the ruins ol Cartbsge far fiom bis native

long lain in that lar away laid, was a
few years ago lovingly borne and laid
to rest in Oak Hill oemetery, New
York. Here is whete tbe home is at
Uult, at least in somt degree, and
must share the blame with the school
