WHAT SIT A Ttli THE BOYS T0?
Parents are continually con
fronted with this question. Many
parents answer it wrongly. The
father desires that his sons shall
not undergo the toil and self-denial
that he has undergone, for
getting, or perhaps not realizing
in any proper sense, that it was
that toil and self-denial that made
him the man he is. The mother
has her foolish notions about the
respectability of certain grades of
employment which enable those
following them to wear good
clothes ami exhibit a few of the
superficial evidences of refinement
and culture. The boy, with his
inexperience and inability to look
below the surface of things, is
easily led to follow the well-intended
but foolish judgment of his
parents and commences life by
swelling the list of book-keepers
without a ledger, doctors without
a patient, and lawyers without
clients and genteci clerks without
The first thing the parent or
teacher should do is to study
carefully the bo3's aptitudes.
Having done this he should be
taught that any kind of honest
labor is honorable and that what
he could do best should be his
calling, no matter whether it was
to make shoes or carriages, to
raiso cattle or to butcher them.
Many a boy who might ip time
become a good farmer, owning a
.farm and home of his own, be
comes an indifferent hand-to-mouth
salesman in a store at a sal
ary that will only barely keep soul
and body together and provide no
accumulation for sickness or old
age. Many a boy who, by learn
ing the machinist's trade could
some day be at the head of a great
manufactory, remains in obscurity
and poverty because his parents
thought the profession of book
keeper would be more genteel.
A little study of the advertising
columns in a great daily journal,
or an inquiry among the leading
business men of any thriving town,
would cause, a revalation that
should serve to deter parents from
making semi-dudes of their sons
by crowding the already over-
' crowded positions of clerks and
book-keepers with them. In the
city of New York there at the
present time 0,000 book-keepers
out of employment, and of the
23,000 who have more or less
steady employment in that calling
in that city, very few receive over
$23 per week, while a far greater
number are glad to accept $10 or
13. A business man of the city
lately advertised for a clerk at 10
a week and had 700 applications
for the place. In view of these
facts the parents of boys should
urge them to learn trades, to go
into the shops or on the farm, any
where where honest work is to be
done, and to avoid as they would
pestilence the semi-genteel call
ings, which are so overcrowded
that the majority who are depen
dent on them have no hope of more
than the barest subsistence while
they remain in them. Philuilcl
A Terriblo Year.
It is generally conceded that
"Wiggans was too easily scared.
That if he had come manfully to
the charge again and insisted with
out shadow of turning that the
conjunction of the planets threat
ened direful disaster to the earth,
he would have scored several
splendid hits and put up his record
as a weather prophet to the very top
of the notch. Ho had fire, water,
famine, volcanoes, earthquakes,
tornadoes, cyclones, and cholera to
aid him. There have been from
six to twelve terriblo calamities
even- month of the year, destroy
ing a total of 25,000 lives, which
the Java earthquake will probably
increase to 100,000. A few of the
most prominent will be recalled in
enumerating them: The Gorman
floods; the burning of the Newhall
House iu Milwaukee; the burning
of a circus in Poland; the loss of
the steamer Cambria; the burial
alive of seventy-seven miners at
Joilet, Illinois; fire and panic m a
New York school house; Hull and
Yarmouth (England ) fishing
wrecks; avalanches in the Italian
Alps; the panic on the Brooklyn
bridge; panic among school chil
dren at an entertainment in Sun
derland, England: burning of a
theater in Italy; the capsizing of
the Daphno while being launched
on the Clyde; the giving way of a
pier near Baltimore; the collision
on the Itome & AVatertown, New
York, railroad; the earthquake at
Ischia ; the volcanic eruptions and
earthquakes at .lava; the cyclones
in half a dozen states from Missis
sippi to Minnesota; the railroad
catastrophe at Steglitz, Germany,
the explosion of the JUvcrdvle's
boiler; and scores on scores of less
startling but quite as destructive
catastrophes, which are actually
too numerous to mention. Indeed,
the extraordinary number of them
diminishes the horror of each one;
and leaves only the frightful ag
gregate to appall the imagina
tion. It was feared that Phoebe
Couzins, the St, Louis lawyer and
lecturer, had perished in the Ro
chester, Minn., cyclone; but she
was a little out of the line of the
storm. Some of the things wjiich
she saw will help people appreci
ate the savage intensity of the
wind. A farmer's wife, caught in
the field, ran for a stake, but her
limbs were torn off and the stake
driven through iier body; a young
woman is so mangled with ashes
driven into her body that she can
not live, and a boy's spine was so
filled with nails that he will die of
lockjaw; a cow hud her head blown
from the body so that the two
horns pierced her bowels. The
only safety was iu the cellars.
Miss Couzins writes to her friends
"But the most heartrending sirht
was the big hall, with the house
less and homeless and killed and
wounded. Near the door of the
hall, improvised as a hospital, lay
five children, all dreadfully hurt,
whose parents had both been
killed. The sixth child, the babj
never has been found. The sight
moved the stoutest-hearted to
tears. Over forty were in here-
men, women and children in a
most pitiable condition. One
cunning baby, which reminded me
of 's little one, which no one
claimed, with one of its eyes put
out, lay and gazed with its one
eye at every person who passed,
with the most intelligent question
ing look, as if to sav 'What does
all this mean? Can no one find
my mamma?' "
Polygamy is, according to Col.
Godfrey of the government Utah
commission, to be squelched by
creating a division in the Mormon
church. There are, at most, only
15,000 polygamists in the church;
but the 120,000 monogamists have
winked at polygamy, and henpe
the polygamists have ruled. Now
that every polygamist is disfran
chised, the monogamists see that
their only hope of holding office
lies in declaring against polygamy
and there are as ambitious poli
ticians in Utah as anywhere. The
commission, Col. Godfrey says,
have prepared for recommendation
to congress a marriage law pro
viding that all marriages shall be
solemnized in certaiu public places
before witnesses, and that the per
sons performing the ceremony, and
the witnesses as well, shall make
affidavit that they are not polyga
mists. The commission will meet
again in October next, to investi
gate some contested election
A remarkable feature of a case
in an Indiana court was the youth
fulness of a mother present who
had at the age of only 13, given
birth to healthy twins. Youthful
maternity seems to havo been in
herited, for this mother was herself
born when her mother was 13, sbo
in turn having been born when
her mother was 13. . In court was
the remarkable spectacle of a
and mother of twins, the great
grandmother now be 40 3'ears
old, tho grandmother-27, and the
'Hound and 'Round in a Fatal
Minas Bay, Nova Scotia, is an
arm of the Bay of Funday. The
tide rushes in with great force,
forming what is known as "the
bore.5 At the equinoxes it some
times rises sixty or seventy feet.
Parker, Dakin and George Gardi
ner, fishermen, were pulling in
their nets. Their boats drifted
near the-bore, or whirlpool. The
men took to their oars and were
making headway against the water
when Dakin's wrist gave out. The
boat drifted nearer to the vortex
and capsized. In a moment both
men were sucked down to a
great depth. They came to the
surface, but, as Gardiner was
about to advise Dakin what to do
to save himself, both men were
drawn under again. They came
up and were engulfed a third time.
Again they came to .the surface.
Gardiner spoke to his companion
but got no response. Dakin
had suffocated while beneath tho
water. Gardiner managed to
reach the boat, and clung to it till
the next morning, when he was
rescued by other fishermen. He
says that tho weight of the water
upon him when he "was drawn
down was fairly painful, and that
each time he disappeared he
thought that his time had come.
The current kept Dakin's body
close by the drifting boat all night,
and Gardiner savs that no matter
which way he turned his head, the
corpse always appeared in view.
