NOTES Or A BYSTANDER.
Some of un-old -fellows .are likely tit
forget that we were once lwiys; (antl
girls 1. and that "
friend of liiine.
life in age. who
ln.ys ylll be boys." A
past the uierhllaii tif
is usually di'giiilted in
liis bearing ami considerate in his man
ner. ami careful of the feelings of oth
ers, had a Irothcr of alMiut his 3-ear
for a visitor recently. Xalurally, the
ireutl of their conversation was- re
miniscent. They talked over the-old
times when they were boys, ami lived
over the glad tlay j when life was a
toirtiiiual holiday lo them. The visit
ing brother informed my friend that
he hail recently had a conversation
with a schiHilmalc of his, t.f the distant
vernal-peritHl of hi4 life. This school
mate hail told him of many escapade
ami tricks of my old friend In the
heyday tif his yi.utb. when he should
have been busy with his lessons. They
were such tricks as were, played by
He Ini.vs of that lime. They were t.f
a piece with the ones familhlr lo the
.youths In the time t.f Julius Caesar,
ami similar to the escapade of th-IJrtH-k
youth long In-fore that histori
cal jmthmI. The world Is always young,
or a part or It is. The bimyancy of
youth i tht same throughout the ages.
Ami it i a mighty good thing that we

us get back to our -subject. It hapH-ns
that this gia j--l-irtl frit-ud t.f mine
has a boy. who is, full of Voulhful ea
prices ami prauks. Ho has often Ih-cii
tlisgusfeil with Ihe ftM?liish ami useless

told him at one of these time that he.
lo-ed to do Just the Kapit- thing, t.r
even worse, hej woiihl not. have
thanked his informant, nor would he
-have 1hcii able to make him-u-lf le
lievr the statement. Rut his brother
told him of the. thing-t. with circiiin
stajiei's that enabbsl him to 'recall
Ihem and that forel him to ackiiowl
ftlge their truth. All t.f our loys must
tlcsi.t front' their pranks. They 111111
lH-have themselves.. Rut there Is no

how gHl ami exemplary we were
when we weie yolurig.
