IntelTgence and good morals are
primiry essentials to Uie peryianenee
of any Government, or the happirt"--of
auy beople. Man is so constitu
ted i hat little or Jiothing comes by
intuition everything must be learn
ed. Again, the lessons of yojith
whether in learning or morals, make
the character of the man in after
years. It is therefore of primary
importance that our schools, whether
common or otherwise, should be con
ducted with this two-fold object.
Hut the question of what constitutes
'that particular kind or sort of intel
ligence most desirable, (for no man
can become infinitely wise), admits
of a variety of opinions. There
seems to have crown up in our edu
cational circles a preference for what
may not inappropriately be called
abstract knowledge in contradiswuct
ion to practical knowledge, and really
it appears to us that in this our edu
cators are sadly at fault. The
greatest good lor the greatest num
ber should be the mottoin educational
as well as other matters, and that the
present plan as applied to the edu
cation of our boys and ;irls does not
accomplish this, we believe to be in
disputable, but on the contrary op-
exatt'S especially for the benefit of
the few who may wish to become
finished scholars or to engage in
some ot the learned professions, so-
calleil, and atrainst the many who
must by brain and brawn fill the
months, cover the backs and shelter
all from the storms; and what they
lack in brain they must make up in
brawn, for all there is of wealth
conies of the men who tiil the soil,
toil as artisans, dig in the mines or go
down to the sea in ships. For their,
should the streams of knowledge be
made to gush forth their treasures
most abundantly. It is not so now.
The college graduate is often but the
poorest sort of m excuse for a busi
ness man, or farmer, or mechanic, or
miner, or navigator. lie is but in
intelligent machine if you p.lease,
iiiat needs a directing hand to be of
any practical use in the busy world,
except to make just such other ma
chines as he.
Holding to these views and besides
believing most religiously in our free
school system, it is with special de
light we notice a move in the right
direction on the part of the schools
of Oakland, where a class or depart
ment has been created to teach prac
tical knowledge, comprehending
those tilings most important for a
young man to know when staiting
out in the race of life. We do not
know bow well this laudable effort
is succeeding, but we do. know it
ought to succeed, and if by any mis
chance this should fail, the time will
come when a like effort will not fail.
Men were made for husbands, and
women for wives. Each pair should
have a home of their own. The hus
band should provide for the house
hold and stand ready to defend the
hearthstone, and the wife should be
a helpmeet, dispensing with the hand
ot'judgiiient, economy and prudence
the means for a livelihood furnished
by the husband.
The younsc man graduate from our
high schools should be fi'ted to go
out into the world, either as a mer
chant, mechanic, farmer or profess
ional man, so far as the main essen
tials for success are concerned. He
shoulTl, in addition to the usual Eng
lish branches, have something in the
way of higher mathematics; but far
more important, he should have a
thorough knowledge of bookkeeping,
and everything of a general nature
connected with business. We be
lie lie it to be a fact that more than
half the failure in business all
kinds considered is owing to igno
rance of bookkeeping on the part of
principals. If the destiny of man is
to earn, bread, surely our schools
should fit him as best they may for
that purpose, and not as a mere orna
ment for the delectation of society.
But what of the woman? We ans
wer, apply the same principle to her
education. She should be taught, in
addition to the ordinary Englisti
branches, the best way to Keep house.!,
and to make home hap'. As the
road to human happiness generally
. - - ; -
leads through the stomach, it follows
that the most important accomplish
ment a woman can possess is to be a
good cook. She should also be ex
pert with the needle, as a collateral
accomplishment, more to be desired
than music or drawing. But we
have no knowledge of a common
school in which cither of these' two
most important branches of a
woman's higher education are taught;
and yet they should be the finishing
course'm every grammar school, and
taken up again and carried through
the high school. No danger of be
coming over expert in either of these
branches ! It really does seem that
our schools are sadly in need of the
leaven of common sense to make
them of the quality they should
possess. Pacific State Watchman.

THE WORTH OF LIFE.
Prof. David Swing, of Chicago,
preached recently upon the "Worth
jflife." Inclosing his sermon he
said: "If the grave is the end, then
the march of man, otheiwise made
with flying banners, and with rich
caparison, and with victories assured
for to-morrow, becomes a funeral
march before we have journeyed far
from our childhood home; and in all
the last years the flags must be furled
and their staffs pointed downward,
and the music must be hushed in
muffled drums. Follow education
and law and a powerful will and
lofty ideals as our youth may, many
of them die in ear.y life, and many
live long, only to fail of finding rny
where the smile of their Father in
Heaven If we must limit this hu
man experiment to this brief earth,
then our logic fails, and our eloquence
must turn into a lamentation, to end
with the sad words: He is dead.
Given such a sudden termination of
the human career, and all logic and
rhotorie fail. The lips of preacher
ind orator and thinker, the aspira
tions and hopes or man, grow silent
in anticipation ot ttiat perpetual
silence just at hand."
Jnst Like Us Father.
Mr. Blanket sat looking at the
baby, trying to think of the usual
idiotic, unnecessary and unmeant
things that people say about new
babies, and at last' in a spasm of
originality, remarked that, "the
b.iby had its father's complexion."
Then they aUsat and looked at the
rich cardinal hues that made the
wrinkled countenance of the uncon
scious infant glow like a mountain
sunset, .and nobody said anything
until a feeble voice, from the adjoin
ing room said: "It was a good thing
the baby had it naturally, llien, as it
required about fifteen years steady
practise and the co-opeiation of th'ree
scientific clubs and five political
campaigns to acquire it." Then a
sad quiet stole over the room again
only broken by a hard breathing
from the baby's father, lookiug st
the thermometer to see what time
it was, while Mr. Blanket, feeling
that he could add nothing to what
had already been said, stole down
stairs, softly whispering about some
fool, but the company could not
catch the name and didn't know
who he meant. Burlington Hawk
Marshall P. Wilder, at the annual
meeting of the New England Gen
ealogical Society, read the following
private letter which he had received
from Dr. Augustus DePloughton.
the Yucatan explorer:
I have discovered among the ruins
of Mayaxan, the Ghnomen by as
tronomers of that city, a Masonic
temple with symbols and hieroglyph
ics. I have found portraits of the
founders of cities and interpreted
the meaning of certain ornaments
that have been misunderstood br
other travelers. I li...-e ascertained
that the key to the ancient Maya
alphabet is the true clue, and by it,
Mrs. DePloughton and myself have
been able to read the minds of the
founders of those cities. I have
found that this alphabet contains
letters and characters belonging lo
the Egyptian, Etrurian and Chaldean
alphabets, and also that the Msya
language is akin to all ancient
languages spoken by men in ages
long gone by. My studies have
caused the belief that the founders
of the first Chaldean monarchy were
from Maya and probably the people
who colonized Egypt and brought
civilization to that country. You
must remember that the Egyptian
priests always pointed to the west
when asked concerning the birth
place of their ancestors.

JOSH BILLISGS' SAYISGS.
There is nothing manly, my dear
boy, in making light of women.
For your mother's sake, honor the
sex. Never use a lady's name in an
improper place, or at any improper
lime, or in mixed company. Never
make assertions about her that you
think are untrue, allusions that you
feel she herself would blush to hear.
When you meet wjjth men who do
not scruple to make use of a woman's
name in a reckless and unprincipled
manner, shun them, for they are the
worst members of the community
men lost to every ssnse of honor
every feeling of humanity. Many a
good and worthy woman's character
has been forever ruined ami her heart
broken by a lie, concocted by an un
principled villain, but believed by
people of good principles who are too
reaby to believe slander or condemn
imprudence and crime. The smallest
thing derogatory to a woman's char
acter will fly on (lie' wings of thc
wind, and magnify as it circulates,
until its weight crushes the poor, un
conscio.us victim. Remember this if
you are tempted to repeat or listen
to a scandalous lie. Astorian.

Underground Telegraph Wires.
The growing necessity for placing
telegraph wires underground in
cities, is eliciting much discussion
in regard to some cheap and yet der
sirable method of insulating the
wires. A new material has recently
been brought to the attention of the
public, which is said to be only about
one-sixth the weight of iron. It is
composed almost wholly of pure
carbon, in what form is not stated,
and so is indestructible; does not
rust nor change by exposure, wheth
er in the air or underground, and is
not affected by frost. But the chief
virtue claimed for it in connection
with underground wires is that it is
a perfect insulator. It is said, too,
that the pipes need not be buried
very deep in the earth, as they may
be of a semi-elastic character, ad
justing themselves to the slight up
heaval atid depression of the ground
through the action of frost or other
disturbances. San Francisco Jour
nal of Commerce.
Rev. Mr. Talmage, of the Brooklyn
Tabernacle, preached, recently, on
newspaper's. He said: On the the
ory that anybody can make a news
paper, inexperienced capitalists every
year are entering the lists, aud it is a
simple statistic that there is an aver
age of dead newspapers every day
of the year. The average of news
paper life is five years. Most of them
die of cholera infantum. It is high
time it wefe understood that the
most successful way of sinking a
fortune and keeping it sunk is to
start a newspaper. Almost every
intelligent man during his lite is
smitten with the newspaper mania;
start a newspaper or have stock in
one he must or die. Bat let me tell
you, oh man, that if you have an
idea or any moral, social, political or
religious subject, yon had better
charge on the world through the col
umns already established. Do not
take the idea so prevalent that when
a man can do nothing else he can
edit a newspaper. To man and to
propel a newspaper requires more
realities than any other business on
earth. If you feel called to start a
newspaper, take it for granted you
are threat ned with softening of
of the brain.
