The tour of the German agricultur ists through our statu will attract at- tontlon to our resources in Germany. I In these days the nroduct of child labor may be considered the price of blood. A writer in McClure's or the present month, tells of a child being doomed to eleven hours night work daily In a mill, who lost her mental faculties, ("sorter quit keering for things,") then her physical powers gave way and she was sent home sick, permanently disabled for the , battle of life. In a recent number of the Outlook, Lillian W. Betts gives a graphic picture or child labor in Now York state. As a sedative to the public conscience a law is in effect in that state excluding persons under 14 years from employment In a fac tory, and those trom 14 to 10 require a certificate executed by a health of ficer. But an affidavit from the pa rent or guardian, properly attested, certifying that the child is 1C, puts the Juvenile operative beyond the reach of the law, which regards this declaration as tormlnntlvo and final. Describing a visit to a textile fac tor)1 within the limits of New York city, the writer found but two per cent or the child employes of native birth. All nationalities were repre sented: Poles, Russian, Italians, Ger mans, Finns being In predominance, A whole group of these would fall to understand English; few were able to write their names in the language mey spoKe. An Incident given in the narrative is worth reproducing, "Among the swarthy foreign child ren whose babv faces nnd diminu tive, ill-nourished bodies were a pos itive contradiction to the sworn state ments of the parents on file, stood out the refined head and face of an American boy, 11 or 12, apparently. There was a certain pathetic apeal in the boy's eyes that drew the visitor to him. He answered In a refined voice nnd with clear enunciation as to his name and age, responding to the questions. -How old are you?' Fourteen.' 'Wheu were you born?' October 23, 1893.' The visitors were able to control any expression of surprise, but asked where he attend ed school and when he left. At the noon hour one of the visitors went to the school to verify the boy's state ment. The moment the boy s nnmc was mentioned, the head of the de partment to whom the visitor tiad beeu sent, nsked breathlessly, 'What is he doing?' 'Sweeping floors.' The teacher's eyes tilled with tears. 'What crime! A boy with such a mind! He has nlways attended this school. Every teacher he ever had loved him. 1011 do not know how hard we tried to keep him in school. You could not tire that child s mind, it was as tresh at 3 as at 9. Yes, there Is his school record. He will be lu years old next October (1903). I refused to sign the school certificate for a week. He never was ill, never missed a day from school; we hoped much for his future. His mother declared he was 14 last October. Of course under the law, her word, not our school record, stood.' " That boy's work certificate, the writer adds. Issued under the auth ority of the law and In strict accord ance with It. protectb him from mo lestation until lie has worked under Its protection two years, when, that being his authoritative age record, he would be lfi years, and free to work without it. Trafficking in certificates is a com mon piactlce. An applicant for a work certificate being refused for any cause, the expenditure or ?1 will pro cure one from some owner, and the laxity of the factory inspector nnd his subordinates leads to numerous Irregularities, in one plant in boys and four girls were found working without authorization, and when the superintendent ot the works Is ques tioned on this matter, his answer .s very apt to be, "This Is a business proposition, not a philanthropy." And this evil of child labor is ex tending In our midst. We boast of the prosperity which adds wealth to the country at an unexampled rate, and keeps every willing worker em ployed; but to our disgrace be it said this heaping up of ducats is largely at the expense of our tender offspring, whose minds and bodies are destroyed in the eager struggle to get rich. Dr. Edgar G. Murphy, chairman of the child labor commis sion of Alabama, sayse: "The devel opment of machinery has made a new market for child labor. It does not take much of a human being to run a modern machine. The thing is so highly developed that only a tiny connecting link is required to com plete the chain of the process." In a recent address given In Baltimore, Md.. this official makes resort to sta tistics. In Maryland during the last decade, he mentions an Increase of 9 per cent of adult labor In the state, while child labor showed a gain of 42 per cent. In Baltimore the figures were striking. During the decade from 1S80 to 1890 the gain in adult labor was 43 per cent, and child la bor showed a decrease of C5 per cent. In the following decade, however, there was no Increase of adult labor in the city, but a gain of 123 per cent in the labor ot children. According to a saying or Shake speare, The whirligig or time brings about Its own revenges. Children set to work in factories at a tender age, deprived or schooling and parental cares, grow deformed in body and porverted In mind. An Instance is mentioned by the writer of a Russian Jew boy. who attended school on the East Side. According to the school record, he was just 13 at the time of his promotion. The boy displayed the brightest mind In school, led all his schoolmates and was endowed with a phenomenal memory. Shortly after bis advance ment the boy's father presented him self with a printed blank, requiring the teacher's signature as to school attendance. She expostulated with the man. "The boy Is too young." she said, "you are not poor; he has a brilliant mind and should be given an opportunity to study," The father left In anger, after shamefully abusing the teacher for re fusing to sign the paper. The sequel to this outrage on nature Is told In pathetic language. The following September the man returned with his boy, desiring to enter him as a pupil. The principal tells the story. "I looked at them," she says, "tin boy 1 Tailor Made Suits 1 I i ,u- ii.-,f,i iiAJnufiflrl suits and skirts, and none are better httinir. bett Z .. . ,i. it .-,. n irnnil suit we have it.

THE FAIR Agents for the Raymond Washable Kid Gloves who had left me a rollicking, happy, brilliant schoolboy, stood before me broken and cowed, looking like a sneak. 'What has happened?" 1 gasped. The father, in a tone vin dictive and cruel, responded, 'He is a thler.' The boy shrank within his clothes." It developed that the boy had been set to work with a jeweler, having no certificate, and attcr a few months was arrested for stealing. He passed two days in jail and then his father purchased his release. When re-nd-mltted to sehool he was classified three grades below the one from which he was promoted, and then he could not keep up with his work. Sorrowfully the principal remarkes: "I think his mind Is destroyed." Surrounded by evil Influences, these children naturally take to wrongdoing. "In one of these plants," the writer tells us, "a system of stealing metals has been evolved." A fence had established himself with in bandy reach, who paid trifling sums for the plunder brought him by these Juvenile delinquents. These facts lead to the question whether our statesmanship stands approved In vitiating and corrupting the grow ing generation, in order that the bulk of our manufacturers may be swelled , and the accumulation of wealth in-' creased.
