Conie, now, tny lad, but you want to ran
awny. No boy over yet reached the ago of
ID Twtliout having several times firmly ro
solved to leavo home. When a hoy has msdo
up Lis mind to a thing of this sort he ought
to carry it out by all means. The first step
in the programme is to begin saving up bread
nn-i meat When you have a bushtl or so of
provisions hi dden m the barn, or under the
wooJ-sJiftf, you are .ready, for the battle with
the cold world. Hate your start 'at night
This xull prevent the sun from tanning your
complexion, and you will bo quite certain of
tho company of a tramp or two.
Soniu boys leave a note pinned to the pillow
of their beJ. JThij 'note goes on'to say that
tho boy has been jawed, bulldozed, starred',
jioundcd and knocnod down and dragged
out, until ho lias raado up his mind to sever
tho comioction. Ho will never bo beard of
more. It is probably tho best way to leavo
a notTi ol this loud, as tho family are then
inailo to fully realize their cruelty in driving
the jxxr lxjy out among straugors.
When you liavo packod up your little bun
dle and aro oft", it wi 11 be well to settlo unon
some phm5for the future. .Perhoiisyou want
'ttoho u snilorj tNothWg is easier. Hake
your way to somo lako or seaport, and most
any captain will tako you. If ho can't dis
gust j ou w ith tho sailoiing business in about
n week, tar buckets, sea-sickness, poor pro
visions and a rope's end will bo called
upo!i to assist him.
l'crhapiyou want to !ecomo a mighty
hunter? Mighty hunters are not made in a
few-days or weeks You want to begin by
letting your, hair and linger nails grow,
deeping in.a swanip, nnd waistlng 82 worth
of ammunition to kill n 10-ceut chipmunk.
If you lmvof decided to Uccu a bank
rlcrl, well and good, lako track's for the
ih'!i:et city, nnd the first bank ycu enter
will jump at the chanco of employing you at
a salary of $200 jicr mouth. If it should so
happen that tho haul: didn't do any jumping
us you" made application, you can console
yourself with t'iu reflection that it is about
JJut, fiicaking in all seriousness, my boy, if
Iiiad adiLii sous I slionld be glad to have
each nnd euy one of theni tako his turn at
rumdng away from home. ' It is the Lost

liio idea of running aw ay. You think of the
tpai Ming tea, the green prairief.coral strands

feJ timt'jxu know so much ji5orij than jSoiii

in a pillow-cjM, 17 ceits iu your pockot, and
just think how jour father and mother hai
ni.sufed you at homo! Tho romance begin
to wear off, ehl You don't care half as much
about memiaM'i and palm-groves and pirate
slii s us you did nn hour ago. You hate tc
leave mother after all, ami perhaps fnthei
isn't su much to blame for bossing you
nrouuiL Conio to think it nil over, jwrhaiis
you'd better return home nnd try and stand
it for a few moro weeks.
Ah! my -son, but wo'vo all been there! All
theso wrinkled, nml digniflod.and bald-headed
old men you meet on ihe streets liavo had
about the samo experience. Wo'vo had that
same jierio'l of "swell-head,"1 and eight out of
ten of us have packed our bundles nnd slid
out to escape parental tyranny. Eight out
of ten of us have slipped back again, too,
and the expedience was tho right sort of med
icine for tho disease. Any time you come tc
feel that jou are a poor, overworked and
downtrodden loy, and that if you only had
n fair show j-ou'd know moro iu a minute
than your father does in an hour, just skip.
There's nothing liko it.

from this latter re'licf represontation, a nutal

is not of a kind to take readily to new
methods of agriculture.- The notion that tb

thing short of a miracle. A class which is so
largo and which ii so hampered by custom,
tradition, and superstition cannot bs made
