Why Send Boys to Germany I
Ennon Hum.ktix: Wednesday's
iP.C.'i. says, l,Lct us send more
young men, say to Germany to be
come practical agricultutists, for--csters
and botanists." I have no
objections to " sending more young
men:" it is wt.-c and progressive.
But why to Germany ? It is ad
mitted that Germany has excellent
agricultural schools, and makes first
class foresters and botanists. Hut
Germany herself lias admitted that
the agricultural schools of the United
States of America have &0 improved
withiu the pastfewycarsthatthcyarc
now second to none. Is it not
quicker, ebortor, and cheaper to
send young men to America than to
Germany ? Moreover, the Ameri
can agricultural tchools ate wider in
their range, embracing branches of
tropical and semi-tropical agricul
ture which do not enter into the
German system. A very important
matter to youths of this country.
Besides, in Germany the young men
would have to spend considerable
s in learning a forcigallanguagp
ire they could begintltucirrigri
ii. r i 'tat
ulttir.il studies. In whatcvorpspeot
the HHbjectis viewed, I seri'npjgood
xcason for sending our yottng'meu
all the way to G errnany to pursue
the dturi'tcs indicated, when they can
have tho btime advantages nearer
home and at a smaller cost.
Missionaries and Mechanics.
Slit. Editor: Your contempor
ary, the iMtily Advertiser, accord
ing to its usual custom, throws out
u false insinuation against the Haw
aiian missionaries in these words:
"The missionary development on
these Islands has failed to appeal
fcucccssfulby to the industrious in
ternets of the people." I take these
words, in connection with the suc
ceeding part of the paragraph from
which they arc quoted, to mean that
because the missionaries did not
toach the Hawaiian, trades and im
part to them mechanical knowledge,
their mibsion has therefore failed.
Whereas tho fact is that tho Amer
ican Board of Missions sent mission
aries to these Islands for a definite
purpose, and that purpose was to
teach tho natives the. simple story of
tho gospel, and if tho missionaries
lad turned their energies into any
other channel tlioy would have failed
to prosecute tho mission with which
they had heen entrusted. They were
not commissioned to teach industrial
pursuits or to instruct in meclinnical
arts. I am not discussing what they
Jgjiic flaiin Ijnllciiii;
or tniyAl, or should have
done, or what would have been tho
best tbiujj to have done. These arc
questions aside from the point at
Issue. Tho missionaries were sent
here, came here, and labored here to
enlighten the natives in Christianity.
Why blame them for not doing what
they were not commissioned nor ex
pected to do? Candok.
The American Meeting.
Yesterday we omitted our report
of the above meeting, owing to want
of space. But as we feel that so
important a step as the consideration
of a suitable welcome to their Minis
ter by our American fellow citizens
is worthy of notice and commenda
tion by the press, wo hasten to pre
sent our report : The meeting was
numerously attended ; so much so,
in fact, that in any could not even
find standing room inside, but
spread themselves out in the street.
And commensurate with the attend
ance was the enthusiasm, so hearty
was the applause at different times
that the sounds could be heard even
in the adjacent streets. Mr. Dagget
has every reason to be proud of the
whole-soulcdncss of the good will
expressed towards him.
Sir. Spencer, of Dillingham Sc Co,
was voted to the chair, and Sir. G.
Stewart, of the Saturday Press,
was appointed Secretary.
After numerous expressions of
patriotism and good will to Sir.
Daggett, the meeting appointed a
committee of 15, who ucrc instruct
ed to take the wholo matter into
their hands and to arrange ever'
thing. They also had power to add
to their number and to invite co-opor-atiou
at their discretion. After do
ing this the meeting broke up.
Throughout harmony and unanimity
prevailed. Wc congratulate our
American cousins on the thoroughly
energetic and business-like way in
which the whole thing was done. It
is, we learn, thought that the demon
stration will probably take tho form
of a public parade and addresses at
some given point to follow.
Sleeting adjourned sine die.
Tho .following are the names of
the committee for Hon. Sir. Dag
gett's reception: Bruce Cartwright,
J. E. Brown, James B. Castle, C. N.
Arnold, C. 1. Scarborough, Chas

A Domestic Tragedy.
A story rcaehes us from Russia
which for harrowing details can
scarcely be surpassed.
A poor peasant of Nijni Novgo
rod, says the " Golos," after many
years of hard and inccbsant toil, so
far prospered in worldly affairs as to
bo able to move, himself and family
to a plcasantcr part of the country,
than that in which he was then
living. To effect his purpose he
he. sold his little all, and returned to
his loving wife with the proceeds in
paper money, which with honest
pride, he laid on the kitchen table.
Happening to be called away for a
moment, he left the room, when his
little boy with that impish spirit of
mischief with which little boys rc
unfortunately so often imbued,
seized the notes, and threw them on
tho lire to see what a pretty blaze
they would make. At this moment
the father returned in time to sec
his last rouble fly up tho chimney.
Transported with rage he dealt the
child such a terrible blow in the
face that he laid him out as dead as
mutton. When the unhappy man
saw what ho had done, and realized
the fact that ho had killed his own
s n and possessed not one single
copeck in tho world, ho rushed out of
the house and promptly hanged him
self in a neighboring barn.
The mother, at the time of this
tragic events was nursing her infant
daughter in an adjoining room, the
wash-house. Hearing the fall, and
her husband's agonizing cry, she
hastily dropped the baby and ran to
her elder child. When she found
the poor boy was dead, her grief
knew no bounds, and she fainted
over the lad's body. On her
recovery tho neighbors told her that
the baby was also dead, for in her
haste she had dropped the child into
a tub of water where it had drowned.
She was not yet aware of the last
and final blow her husband's death
When this was broken to her, reason
forsook her and she became a raving
Thus in the short space of five
minutes was an entire house broken
up, three of the members dead, tho
fourth a lunatic and the house sold
to another man.

less expense, keeping him for 1
month instead of three.
