LEARN A TRADE.
For many years the press has been
urging the learning of trade by
boys. A generation ha" in the mean
time been growing up. with an in
creasing disposition to regard pro
ductive toil as disagreeable. It lias
become a serious matter of com
plaint among matcr mechanics and
manufacturers, in the 1'nitcd States,
that good boys to learn trades are
scarce. One cause of the evil is the
tendency of tiic times and of public
instructors, including the press, to
unduly exalt tho achievements of
those who have suddenly risen to
fame and fortune. Plodding indus
try has thus been made to appear,
in the fervid imagination of youth,
as a road to success which only the
dull-witted, and those devoid of
genius needed to travel. The situa
tion is complicated to the philan
thropic social 'cicnti'-t by the fuel
that the desire for an easy and gen
teel livelihood seems to have grown
with the advancement of educational
systems toward perfect ideals.
(Education ha long been held forth
' as the great regulator of society, the
most potent preventive of crime.
Hut it does not hcem to be fuUilling
that function in anything like fair
proportion to its own development.
In fact, a very great portion of the
prevailing crime in the world to-day
is of a nature requiring a high
degree of educated cleverness to
perpetiatc. "'A smart rascal." is
the term justly applied to many
educated depredators of the tights
and property of the individual and
the state. Yet education, in the
, popular seno of schooling, cannot
for this reason lie denominated a
cause of that species of crime ; il is
only a necessary condition of il. A
true and thorough education of the
whole man from infancy better,
froin ancestry would have made its
subject a "smart" benefactor of
The same line of reasoning is appli
cable to an effect of education which
more nearly concerns our present
subject that it makes youth feel
themselves above the farm and the
workshop. That such is the case
has been proved in cases of the
schools of a country suddenly under
going radical improvement by the
substitution of an intelligent, metho
dical and scientific system for the
old-fashioned, Imp-hazard regime of
tho boarding-round, tnwso and birch
swinging pedagogue. One of the
first results of such a revolution in
the educational system of a country
is the production of a surplus
of teachers of the subordinate
grades and an overwhelming
supply of store clerks and applicants
for like, easy positions for which a
i -very ordinary education qualifies. It
appears as if the improved system
carried the youngsters forward so
, much mote rapidly than the old
want of system, that themselves and
their parents were deluded into the
belief that tho hopefuls were, geniuses
''who'slioukl be hurried out into the
World as quickly as Jiosslbloi lo ' tho smoke, -which detaches ifio fllnin
grasp the success that they had but ' ous incmbrmiu in the throat and
to reach out for.
The further tendency of the ex
cellent facilities afforded in modern
educational Bystcms is to crowd the
professions with men who have
under-estimated the conditions of
true success in them, and whose
motives arc too much of a sordid
nature. While il may bo true that
there is always room nt the lop in
the learned vocations, tho top of the
tree is to a largo oxtcnt made less
worthy the expenditure of great
cfTbit to mount to. by the plums
being bi ought within reach of cheap
and llashy expedients at the bottom.
Legal tariffs of remuneration, and
the methods of mendicants and
sycophants, are necessary to main
tain in the world n great propoition
of the classes who undertake the
care of the health, property and mo
tals of their fellow-beings. Jl is on
account of the large number of per
sons who seek the professions, not
tlnough devotion to their high and
noble objects but for the mere emi
nence iu the world they give, that
they aie often too sweepingly and
unjustly condemned as gigantic im
postures. The more education is
facilitated, the greater will these
evils become, nnd for the benefit of
the race, as well as for self-protection,
the ruling powers of the pro
fessions will bare to raise the
standards of admittance to their
It is not the perfection of educa
tion, but its incompleteness, that is
so much in the way of the world's
substantial work, by hindering tho
supply of men for where they arc
most wanted, and encouraging men
into walks of life where they can be
most easily spared. While the rudi
ments of education taught in tiic
majority of schools in Chris
tendom arc all right, the only
technical education in the majority
of instances is of a mercantile char
acter, and pupils evincing capacity
for more than the rudiments are most
usually tin ncd into Latin and (J reck
grammars, mathematics, orgcoinctry,
often without a thought of their
natural bent. The rule has been, if
the child shows talent above
mediocre make him a clergyman, n
lawyer or a doctor. Possibly in the
operation a natural mechanical
genius may be spoiled, or a great
geographer, geologist or navigator
lost to ids ago, but our boasted edu
cational systems have not yet, as a
rule, comprehended anything higher
in youthful education than a smatter
ing of the monastic lore of the
middle ages. If it were not that
natural selection, oftentimes acciden
tal, led the risiug generation into the
life paths best adapted to them, the
world would be badly off indeed
even with all its educational progress.
It is a hopeful sign of the times,
however, that technical and indus
trial education is receiving increas
ing attention in every civilized coun
try, not excepting our own. While
the experiment is being tried in tho
schools, as a member of one of the
great educational forces of tiic time
the press we would the urge desira
bility of boys, and even girls, learn
ing trades. A good trade by good
meaning one suited to its possessor's
talents and tastes is better by far
than a fortune; surer than a
profession ; commands more pay
than tho so much sought genteel oc
cupations of commercial life ; affords
scope for the utilization of some of
the highest branches taught in the
schools ; prosents to genius, clever
ness or industry tho promise of sub
stantial and sometimes quick re
wards; proem cs the respect and
honor due to honest labor and per
severing effort, and is no bar to the
highest political or social preferment
lo which its possessor's culture and
qualities entitle him. Lei all who
have the car of the rising generation
instil into il the dignity of labor and
tho advantages of mechanical skill,
and magnify the importance of
everybody having a trade.
As diphtheria now tuid then claims
a victim in this country, and is one
of the most terrible of scourges wlicn
epidemic, we give a cure discoered
by a French physician : Pour equal
parts of turpentine and liquid tar
into a tin pan or cup, and set lire to
tho mixture. A dense, resinous
Hinoko arises, which obcttres tho air
of the room. The patient inhales
dissolves it. Entire recovery fol
lows in three days. This treatment
was recently tried in New York. The
patient, a little girl, was lying gasp
ing for breath when the, physician
visited her. First pouting about
two tablespoonfuls of liquellcd tar
on an iron pan, he poured as much
tuipentincover it and set it on fire.
Tho rich resinous stnoko which rose
to the ceiling was by no means tin
pleasant. As it filled the room the
child's breathing became natural,
and as the smoke gicw dense she fell
It is estimated that what the dogs
of Iowa consume would feed 100,000
person, and the vnlue of sheep they
destroy would support the schools
of the Stale. Probably the dogs of
Honolulu consume the value of the
proposed new waterworks in a year.
There seems to be no household here
not poor enough to keep three dogs.
Wheat was cheaper in England at
the beginning of August than il had
been for a hundred years. Wheat
raisers must therefore be in like
straits with sugar-raiscis. In Eng
land the cheapness of wheat will
have n tendency to bring down prices
of oilier necessaries, establishing
some sort of compensation to the
producer. Here, however, far away
fiom the liases of supply, and with
limited domestic food resources,
there is nothing to relieve the de
pression in our great staple.

Anorr a quarter before twelve
o'clock this morning, a team of
horses attached to a dray load of
bamboo sticks, and in charge of a
Chinaman, started at full galop from
Ilalekauwila street, turned on to
Kort street and kept on until reach
ing the corner of Port and Hotel
streets, where in the most daring
manner, W. S. Morehcad, a hack
driver, sprang at one of the horses,
got him by the bit and brought them
to a standstill right in front of Jim
Dodd's stables, the hydrant post
being all broken to pieces by the
wagon colliding witli it. There was
any amount of private caniages on
Fori street at tho time, but fortu
nately they all escaped injury.
George Fassctt was on the street at i
the time in his brake and owing to
its extraordinary dimensions he pro
bably had as narrow an cscapo as
any one. Too much credit cannot
be given to Mor6hend for the cool
