Major R. W. MtiLaughry. (or many
fears warden of the State's prison at
lollet, 111., says: ''Statistics carefully
sollated Hhow thai there are nearly or
juite one-half million of criminals In
Ihe United States, and only about fifty
thousand ot these in 'durance' of any
ilnd. We are further confronted with
he startling fact that of this half
nllllon a little more than one-third
re under twenty years of age, a little
nore than one-half under twenty-one,
and something over two-thirds under
Two-thirds of all the criminals in
this country under twenty-two years
f age! The fact is. indeed, a start
ling one, and should command
the attention of every one who
zares any thing at all for the
future welfare of our country. Why
Are so many of the criminals mere
youth? Innocence, not crime, is pop
ularly attributed to yojith. Of a num
ber of causes, the one that first thrusts
Itself on the attention of the public is
the lack of parental authority and re
straint. The children of this day and
generation soon become their own
masters. Too commonly, children
have full freedom of action. Instead of
being allowed to do as they please
only when they please to do' right
As one consequence of the common
lack of parental restraint and the ab
sence of legal control, many of the
youth of to-day, particularly in the
cities, early come in contact and be
come familiar with vice and crime,
and it is no wonder numbers of
them follow evil examples. Hut the
most important consequence of the
lack of parental and legal restraint is
that it gives the opportunity for the
early and rapid development of inher
ited tendencies to vice and crime; and
probably this, more than any thing:
alse, accounts for the alarming fact
that so large a proportion of criminals
re young. Like begete like. The
evil tendencies of the parents are
transmitted without fail to their off
spring, and are ready to develop at
the first opportunity, as surely and as
oaturally as seed sown mnder proper
sonditiotts will grow. The home is
the foundation of society. "The
republic is around the fire
lide," said Cicero. When home train
ing, discipline and control are a fail
ure, society suffers. They have a most
important relation to the welfare of
society and to the continuance of gov
srnment itself. The oldest govern
ment in the world, that of China, is
Toundod on parental authority. Par
sntal control, with obedience and re
spect on the part of the children, is
the utiiversal custom of the country.
Filial piety is the religion and law of
the land. And probably to this, more
than to any other single factor. China
owes the continued existence of its
national jfovernment for so many cent
uries. Farm and Fireside.
TEXAS JACK'S GRAVE.

"Not far from Charlie Vivian's grave
in Leadville's cemetery," began the
old actor, "is the earthly tenement of
another man whose reputation was
world-wide. A rough pine slub upon
which are inscribed the simple words,
'John Omahundra,' marks the spot
where the once-famous Texas Jack is

carried him away he was the dime

Pouf, she would say, 'ze enfant enjoy

At a recent meeting of the piano

brought forward showing that sines
May 6, 1789, 3,287,063 pianos have been
started on their work of destruction,
and that only 2,814 have so far been
destroyed moHtly by incendiary fires
started by persons living in the house
to which the piano belonged and
whose feelings got beyond their con

DANIEL BOONE'S COMRADE.
Death of Han Who Foua-ht Indiana
with the Kentucky Pioneer.
John L. P. McCune, who was the
oldest man in Clark County. Ind., died
recently at the home of his duughter,
Mrs. C. C. White, at Charlestown. He
was a native of Jessamine County, in
this State, and was born March 5, 1793.
Ho served in the war of 1812. He par
ticipated in the buttle of Tippecanoe,
and was in the fight at Thames, Octo

most intimate terms of acquaintance,
and made many Indian raids with him.
After settling at Charlestown be
learned the trade of shoemaklng and
followed it for a living, making foot
wear for many of the most famous
lawyers, judges, doctors and other pro
fessional men of the early history ol
Indiana. When General William Henry
Harrison visited Charlestown Mr. Mc
Cune, who had heard of his coming la
advance, made an exceedingly fine pair .
of boots for him, which were presented
to the old warrior.
In his day Mr. McCune was a great
fiddler, and upon a still evening the
notes from his violin could be beard al)
over the town, as he sat in his front
door playing upon bis favorite instru
ment He was a familiar figure at the
annual meeting of the old settlers, 'and
was always down on the programme
for an exhibition of his skill on the
violin. At these gatherings , he in
variably played two pieces, which
were his favorites. "Washington1!
Wedding March" and "Martha Wash

his part, but his strength had so
failed him that only the faintest sound
could be heard as his stiffened arm

Louisville (Ky.) Letter.
Varnish made with alcohol will get
dull and spongy by the evaporation of
the alcohol, which leaves water in the
varnish, as all commercial alcohol con
tains water. It is therefore advisable to
take a sheet of thin gelatine, cut it into
strips and put into varnish; it will ab
sorb in the thin sheet most of the
water, and the varnish can be used'
clear and bright till the last drop. The
gelatine will get quite soft, it can then
be taken out and dried and used again.
