ABOUT REFORM SCHOOLS.
A. Dlscouriirlnir l'lrlnrn of Tliclr Kvll In
lliifiicc Upon Hoy.
In the United Stifles arc about sev
enty institutions designed fortlie refor
mation of young oll'eiiders. Their in
mates number more than nine thou
sand bovs and girls, Tho causes ol
commitment embrace nearlv every of
fense, from petty larceny to man
slaughter. Tho irteans of ninondniciii
employed include not only tho rcmowf
of tho offender from tho opportunity o
indulging his criminal tastes, but nisi
tho teaching of some trade, instruction
in tho elementary branches of knowl
edge, and endeavor to form an upright
character. Concerning tho success of
the reform school in the reformation of
those intrusted to it, there is room for
two contrary opinions. In an exami
nation of tlfo convicts of tho prisons
of New York, which was ordered bv
the Prison Association of the Statu in
1875, it was found thai of tho inmates
of tho Sing Sing penitential'', 22.:il
percent, had been "refuge" boys. As
the usual number of inmates of tin
reformatories of New York exceed
three thousand, it is plain that tin
largo portion of them do not become in
mates of prisons within tho State.
As to the reforms accomplished, es
timates vary from CO per cent, to 76.
Hut in these percentages aro included
many children who without being
vicious, but exposed and homeless, arc
received into tho houses of refugo.
The proportion, therefore, of -those
who have served in reform schools who
are afterward convicted of crimes is
small, not exceeding !10 or 10 per cent.
1 et statistics indicate that tho influence
of those schools in jnipressiiiir evil
habits upon a certain class of their
boys is exceedingly strong. Of the
22.ai per cent, of- tho Sing Sing
convicts examined who had been in
these schools, 08 per cent. fifty-one
out of lifty-two were habitual crimi
nals. Some light is thrown upon the
methods by which tins reform school
helps to fix the habit of criminality by
tiio followinj: conversation between a
convict at Sing Sing and an examiner:
"Please, sir, may I ask you a ques
tion?" asks tho convict.
"Certainly," is tho examiner's reply.

In respect to the evil inlluonce of
tho reform school upon certain boys,
it is, moreover, worth while to refer to
tiio experience of one of tho most
learned and humane judges of the Su
premo Hunch of Maine. Heforo his
court was brought a boy who had, evi
dently in a tit of extreme rage, shot ids
father. Ho had, so far as known,
borne a good reputation, and was a
church member. He pleaded that he
believed the gun was not loaded, and
only intended to frighten ids parent.
Tiio jury returned a verdict of guilty.
Never before, confesses tho Judge, did
ho spend so many sleepless nights in
determining upon a sentence. It lay
in ids power to commit the lad either
to the reform school of the State dur
ing the remainder of ids majority or to
tho State prison for a term pf years,
lie chose the latter alternative, and on
tho ground that in tho reform school
lie would learn certain vicious and
criminal habits, which would probably
render Ids whole life criminal and
vicious. In the prison, separated from
other convicts, lie would ho in less
peril of contamination. Having solely
in view the interests of the bov. tho
Judge decided that the disgrace of
being a State prison convict was less
perilous than tho danger ot education

Ills Iteiimrhalite Adaptability to All C1I-
ItllltvH 1111(1 Cullllllilllll.
It has been frequently remarked that
tho Jewish rnco has a wonderful
power of adaptation to all climates,
Jews are found in nil parts of tho
globe and seem to possess a romark-
alilc facility for acclimatization, even
under the most unfavorable circiun
stances. Mesopotamia is considered
tiio mother country of the Abrahnniie
family, as well as tho cradlo of tho
human race. Somo years ago a small
colony of Jews were found in tho nn
eient city of Sonntr, in tiio south of
Mesopotamia, and in the city of an
cient Habyfon. Of tho seventy fam
ilies composing the colony, one
claimed to bo descended from King
Joachim, tho rest from tho house of
L'vi. A colony of Jows appear to
have settled in China about tho begin
ning of tho third century of the Chris
tian era, under the dynasty of Han.
In 1701 Father Gonzani, a Roman
Catholic missionary, found seven Jew
ish families near Pokin.
In 1080 a Portuguese Jew of Amster
dam, named Ue Pavia, discovered a
sect of Jews in Cochin Cliina. Ac
cording to a tradition preserved among
thorn, thoy were descended from a
Iribo of Jews who had quitted Pales
lino on tho destruction of tho second
temple. From their long rosideneo in
Cochin they had become completely
bronzed. These arc not tho same a
the Malabar Jews. The Jewish trav
eler Henjaniiu, sometimes called Huii
jamin II., discovered a colony of J.-ws,
uvidently of Persian origin, in Hin.
,l st mi. Thoy were known as "H by
loiiian Jews," on account of their hav
ing migrated from Babylonia. They
observed tho essential rites of Juda
ism, and strictly avoided inlermarriage
with other sects. In tho beginning of
tho seventeenth century a Jewish col
ony settled in Cayenne, in tho West
Indies, one of tho most inhospitable
climates in South America.
Cayenno was s il s sqiiently con
quered by the French, who made it a
penal settlement, and tho Jewish col
ony was forced to retire to Surinam.
Notwitlis anding frequent persecu
tions, Jows aro still found in Persia,
more especially to tho south of tho
Caspian Sea, wliero tho soil is very
fertile but. the climate very unhealthy.

gin from tho Hiiybyloniaii captivity,
for, according to a tradition still
possessed nnioJig thorn, their an
cestors settled in Persia in the time of
Nebuchadnezzar, and did not respond
to the appeal of Ezra to return to Pal
estine. Their mode of life resembles
that of the Persians in general. They
hold tho beard in high esteem, and
ivonr long, flowing robes. Thoy have
several synagogues, and obtain scrolls
of tho law from Hagdad. The cele
brated African traveler, Mungn Park,
found a colony of .Jewish families in
the heart of Africa, about eight liun-
I rod miles from tho coast. It is no
loubt this peculiarity of tho Jewish
race which induced a French writer on
"Medical Geography" to express tho
opinion that: "It is questionable
ivhether tho crossing of human
rariotios confers on (lie issue
joiistnnt advantages in relation to

A FrcnHt friend of mine lives near
one of those pretty shady avenues of
tvos that aro common on tho outskirts
of French 'owns, and often in the morn
ing he walks out in tlat direction. One
day his citriositv was attracted by a
caravan that sought tho shade there,
The horses were unharnessed ly a serv
ant, anil tho master came out of the
vehicle and looketl around him with
tlie oyo of a stranger to the locality
"I here is something about that cara
van," my friend thought, "that seems
unusual, and I should liko to find out
what it is." Impelled bv this desire,
lie entered into conversation with tho
owner, who was immediately recog
nizable as a gentleman, and my friend
being of tho same class they soon
became communicative, as French
people will when tliev have not
made up their minds to lie rigidly
solemn and reserved. Hie owner
of the caravan was M. lo Cotnto
do H., tho horses were Ids carriago
hors-os, the man was ids groom, and
Mine, la Comtesse was inside t ho house
on wheels, occupied in cooking tho de
jeuner. They remained in that place
twenty-four hours, and my friend be
ciimo almost intimate with them. Thoy
both said that of till the varieties of
traveling this was what thoy most en
joyed. It had begun by tin attempt to
explore some part of the country whore
the inns were bad. but since then they
had come to prefer tho caravan to nn
inns whatever; and. in fact, there were
two or three excellent hotels in the
town they were then visiting. The cara
van was arranged with great skill, so
as to give good accommodation in a
restricted space, and the servant was
provided for by a sort of tent, not setup
separately on tho ground, but belonging
to tho habitation itself. Looking at this
arrangement from a practical point of
view it might be thought that with a
lady on board it would be desirable
to have a second caravan with serv
ants. That, however, would involve
a great increase of expense. Yet
tho continual expense would not be
great, as the extra pair of horses
might bo hired for the excursion only.
One of my friends, who knew that I
wtis interested iu every tiling concern
ing independent travel, told mo of a
moving establishment ho had met with
in Italy. A rich Italian nobleman
traveled witii four caravans of commo
dious size ami admirably contrived,
each drawn hy a pair of line horses.
On arriving at a halting place for the
night tho vehicles were placed in the
form of a hollow square, ami tho place
so inclosed was covered in witii a can
vas roof. This made a sort of central
hall, in which tho owner and his family
dined in great state, the caravans serv
ing as bedrooms. Now, although this
may seem an extravagant way of trav
eling, it is, in fact, merely an unaccus
tomed wav of employing a rich man's
establishment of hor.-es and men. The
extra expense involved by this particu
lar employment of them need not be
extremely onerous. G. I', llamcrton,
