DISARMING- THE GODS.
How Chinese, Japanese and Hindoo
Boys Prepare for School Life.
"Among the Eastern nations Die begin
ning of school life is a critical time for
the child," says Beatrice Wilcox In
Everybody's. Magazine. "The priest or
astrologer must be consulted to choose a
lucky day. livery precaution . must be
taken lo avert the Jealousy of tin? gods,
whose malice Is especially directed against
a lino boy.
"The Chinese father who adores his son
will take the utmost pains to convince
the powers of tho air that tho boy Is of
no account. The child may be given n
despicable name, like flea, or Chu-tze. u
pig. or more insulting still, he; may bo
given a girl's name. The hoy may be
started off to school wearing a girl's dress
and one earring, and If the deception Is
complete thli- will be the most effectual
of nil, for even the geds do not care fpr
girls In China.
"The Japanese schoolboy wears hanging
from bis be)t a little re'd bag. containing
a brass tog. with his name and his pa
rents' name and address upon it. He
must have his napcr umbrella and his
fan, and. In a gay bag unon his arm (s a
Jar of rice for his luncheon. This (plaint
little follow has probably made his offer
ing at his own prlvato shrine to TenJIn
sen. the god of penmanship.
"When tho Hindoo boy has found an
auspicious day to begin school, he Is ta
ken to the god of learning. Sarasvatl.
Here the Utile supplicant presents his
offerings cf rice anel betelnuls. nnd re
peats the letters of the alphabet nfUr the
prlesl. Thus he Is entered Into the wavs
of knowledge In the very presence cf the
god."
The Seed Is Nature's Priceless Gem.
In nature's great treasure-house the
seed Is iho one priceless gem. Compared
to It. the great deposits of coal, the mines
of silver and gold, and of diamonds and
precious stones are as nothing. Man
counts his wealth In dollars and cents.
In mining and railroad shares, and In
houses and lands: while his primal neces

AVIthout these all other tokens of af

sources of true wealth, and the grass of
the field supplies them all directly or Indi
rectly. The cereal grains wheat, rye. oats,
barley, rice and Indian corn which are
the seeds of true grasses, are convertible
ellrectly Into food. The succulent leaves
and culm of the wild grasses furnish sus
tenance lo millions of entile, sheep and
goals, and are transformed by them Into
flesh, milk, wool and hides, thus Inellrect
ly providing meat and clothing. They also
protect the soil from flood and drought
and landslide. Sending their fibrous roots
down among the shifting sands of tho
seashore, they bind the unstable particles
Into a mass so dense as lo check the ero
