Prevention Better than Relief.
From the Philadelphia Ledger.
The relief of poverty is one of the
great pro Diems or in La time, as IS nas
been of all times. Modern regard
tor tne unit or numanity nas lncreas
ed the difficulty, and shifted a per
tion of the burden from the poor to
-the rich. Time was that the poor
were considered as a separate class
and regarded aa born for penury and
deprivation of comfort. Their re
quests for anything better was re
Sarded as presumption ; and as to a
emand for a remedy to their disa
bilities, such a thing was counted re
bellion against order. But now that
the unit is recognised as .an indi
vidual who will bleed If you prick
him, and starve if he gets no food,
the class necessity of poverty is be
ginning to be considered an obsolete
error. Especially in this country.
where the millionaire of to-day is the
poor man or yesterday, is the conve
nient hobby of old-fashioned political
economists discarded. The "caste
lines," patent under the Old order of
tmngs as tne Alps, are witn us al
most as difficult to point out as the
imaginary parallels of latitude. Or
the isothermal lines.

More is done for the indigent than
ever, before. And yet the evil of
poverty increases; The danger grows
that while we demy the caste theory
we have the unfortunate fact of
hereditary poor. Children are born
of such parentage, and reared amid
such surroundings, that they can
hardly be otherwise than indigent.
and sometimes this inherited poverty
forces its poor victims into places
where their children can hardly es
cape vicioas habits. Our philanthro
pists seem to accept the situation.
and the utmost they hope is to make
increasing provision for an increasing
evil. Would it not be better to try
what can be done In the. way of pre
vention r me neaviesc single item
in the expenses of the man of moder
ate income is house rent ; and abso
lute inability to provide a suitab'e
residence for his family forces some
of the worthy poor into quarters
physically insalubrious and morally
malignant, uur. civilization should
be competent to provide a remedy for
this, by removal of the cause of the
misery. Yet even Mr. Peabody, who
has come nearer to the practical un
derstanding of the difficulty than
most other men, has had his gener
osity coupled with such conditions
oy nis trustees tnat nis cnarity, nae
nearly all charities, runs some risk
of becoming a reward for Improvi
dence. A man must be so poor that
even to pay his rent is a struggle,
before he is a fit tenant. A person in
stated and remunerative employ
ment la not a fit tenant. In a word,
the tenant must be so poor that the
tenements are to mm a sort or reruge,
before he can obtain admission.
What all large cities need is some
thing which may enable an honest,
hard-working man to preserve his
independence and to give his monev
for money's w,orth. They need, not
only in the large cities, but 11! every
town where there are people of limit
ed or moderate means, that the op
portunity, should be created by
which rent should be made to bear
less disproportion to other expenses.
x ney want tne possibility extendea
to hard-working men ana women to
own the houses they live in. And
while capitalists, by providing these
much, desired facilities, may not
make unreasonable profits, thevnay
at least derive a reasonable tntejrest
for their money, and prevent nbeur
tenants from coming under the desig
nation of paupers. In Philadelphia
we are much better off in this respect
than any other Atlantic citv. and
have a number of systems in active
operation to promote ownership of
homes, and to lighten, the burdens of
rent. Still we may consider a sug
gestion from abroad.
A correspondent of the Newark
Daily Advertiser, who strengthens
his argument by offering to provide
a portion of the necessary capital.
sketches a plan. It is for capitalists
to ouiia nouses at tne lowest possi
ble cost consistent with comfort and
convenience, and sell them to eligi
ble tenants, tne payment to be divi
ded through a number of years, and
to include rent and taxes. Upon the
last payment the deed is to be given
to the purchaser. The houses- are to
bp built so as to command all the ad
vantages of capital, "wholesale, not
retail." This plan has some of the
advantages of what are called "Build
ing Associations," without the dis
advantage of the competition which
raises the rate of interest, and the
other greater disadvantages which
attend the building of a house with
the drawback of high prices, conse
quent on limited purchases of build
ing material. Something like this.
it seems to us, would be a wise em
ployment of capital. The returns
should not be large, for the objects
aimed at are assistance to the deserv
ing and provident, not the making
tne most money out 01 tneir necessi
ties. Practical men could so arrange
the details that the investment
would be safe for the builder ; and at
the same time the contract, lease or
deed, call it what you please, could
be so arranged that the tenant could
be assured in the saving of the money
he invests. Too often the unsuccess
ful attempt to buy or build results in
the loss of all the money advanced.
But on this plan the tenant might be
guaranteed that whatever money he
appnea snouia oe returnea to mm,
with a reasonable deduction for the
wear and tear of the property, in case
that he found it expedient or neces
sary to give up bis bargain ; or he

tions. His annual
payments should 'constitute a claim
similar to a mortgage. The sugges
tion deserves tne attention or those
who desire to prevent rather than
simply to relieve poverty.

The Abuse of Physical Exercise.
The Westminster Gazette, in the
Course of an article against too much
physical exercise, observes : "Those
who have gone through the severest
training become, in tne end, dull,
listless and stupid, subject to nume
rous diseases, and In many instances
the ultimate victims of gluttony and
drunkenness. Their unnatural vigor
seldom lasts more than five years.
It was especially remarked by the
Greeks that no one who in boyhood
won the prize of the Olympic games
ever aistinguisnea aimseir afterward.
The three years immediately pro
ceeding seventeen are years of great
mental development ; and nature
cannot, at the same, endure any se
vere taxing of the physical-constitution.
Prudence, therefore, especially
at this critical period of life, must
ever go hand in hand with vigor ;
for the evils of exeesa outweigh by
far the evils of deficiency."
We are always going to extremi
ties in education, as well as in poli
ties and theology. The absolute neg
lect 01 pnysicai development in tne
past generation we see followed in
this by habits or exercise which
threaten to make us a people of
athletes and cripples. Not content
with a rational useof the gymnasium,
under the supervision of a teacher
versed in physiology, developing
pari passu the muscles and the intel
lect, as in tne uerman universities,
our youth aim each to be a Hercules,
willing to be dunces if their arms
andjloins be strong. Hence the ball,
and cricket, and boat clubs ; hence
the huge dumb-bells and Indian
elubs, which strain and fatigue the
muscles, and lay the foundation for
many diseases of the limbs and inter
nal organs. There was a time when
hernia, or rupture, was principally
confined to the laboring classes,
among whom it Is so common that it
is safe to say that one in every fifth
you meet is affected with it in some
degree. Now this infirmity is in
creasing among the students, many
of whom lay the foundation for a
life-long disease in the ill-judged ex
ercises of the so-called "manly
sports." We are not all the same,
either mentally or physically; ana
exercise, like food and study, must
be graduated according to the power
of the individual. This distinction
is generally overlooked ; and the

at that, is received with public din

papers and commendatory letters
from clergymen with the fulsome
flattery that their four-mile rowing
match will be a powerful agent in
maintaining the entente cordialc be
tween America and England to ask
ourselves the question if we are not
carrying to a ridiculous extreme the
power of muscle at the expense of
brains and good health?
All physicians and physiologists
are aware of the effects of rowing, as
ah exercise, on the heart and pulse.
These effects have been carefully ex
amined recently by Dr. Fraser, of
Edinburgh, by means of the "spbyg
mograph," an Instrument invented
In France, which produces a self-
written record of the swellings and
contractions of the arteries. The
delicate movements of these vessels,
which the finger can not detect, are
thus registered in a series of curves
or waves, by a pencil on a strip of
paper moved by clock work. The
"sphygmograms"of a crew of healthy
persons before leaving the boat
house, and immediately after its re
turn, are very different. The tracings
show clearly that an extremely large
quantity of blood is, in rowing, circu
lated with great rapidity, a condition
of the circulation essential for the
continuance of prolonged and severe
muscular exertion. The effect of
such a condition upon persons suffer
ing from, or liable to functional or
organic diseases of the heart, can be
easily conjectured. There oan be no
doubt that many Incipient diseases
of the heart and blood-vessels are
rendered active and dangerous by the
violent exercise of rowing ; and that
much discomfort, and premature
death, are the result of this mania in
judiciously and intemperately in
dulged in. a.8 boat crews ao not,
and can not, here submit themselv s
to "spbygmographical" examina
tion, and thus enable the predispo
sed to heart-disease to retire in time
to prevent further mischief, it may
be a wholesome caution for the
youthful oarsman to stop and con
sider, especially if violent exercise
produces an uncomfortable feeling in
the heart and lungs, whether he will
indulge in anything more than a
moderate pull. The effects of rowing
on the circulation do not differ from
those of many other forms of muscu
lar exercise. It is the violence of
such exercise, whether with the oar,
the bat, or the Indian club, which is
the dangerous element. While it is
safe to row or play ball simply for
amusement, it may be eminently
dangerous to engage in a boat-race or
a ball-match. Exchange.
A Pennsylvania merchant agreed
to take a farmers oats at 40 cents a
bushel If the latter would let him
tramp the measures when filled.
The farmer agreed to it. The buyer
paid for 60 bushels and the other day
went after them. The farmer filled
the bushel, and the merchant got in
and tramped them down. Whereup
on the farmer poured the oats so
compressed into the bag. Tli,. mer
chant protested, and demanded that
the measure should be filled up af

him that there was no agreement of
that sort, but that he might tramp
down the oats to his heart's content
after they were measured.

Anecdote of Frederick I. of
Prussia. One evening, being too
unwell to read his usual devotions,
he called upon his valet de chambre
to read prayers. In the prayer oc
curred the words, "May God bless
thee." The servant not deeming It
respectful to use thee in reference to
the king, took the liberty to change
the phrase, and read it, "May Qod
bless you." The king, exasperated,
hurled something at the head of the
speaker, exclaiming, "It Is not so ;
read it again." The terrified ser
vant, not conceiving in what he had
done wrong, read again, "May God
bless you." The irascible monarch,
having nothing else he could grasp
took oil his night-cap and threw it
into the man's face, exclaiming, "It is
not so ; read it over again' The
servant, frightened almost out of his
senses, read for the third time, "May
God bless you." "Thee rogue,"
shouted the king. 'May God bless
thee.' Dost thou know, rascal, that,
in the eyes of God, I am only a miser
able rascal like thyself ?" From
"Frederick the Great" in Harper's
Magazine for March.

Bad Practick.-You might as well
expect to relieve and cure an inflam
ed eye by dusting irritating powders
into it, as to expect to subdue and
cure Catarrh (which is an inflamma
tion of the mucous membrane of the
air passages in the head) by the nee
of irritating snuffs or strong, caustic
solutions. Dr. Sage's Catarrh Reme
dy cures Catarrh by its mild, soothing
action, which subdues the Inflamma
tion and restores the natural secretion
of tbe mucous follicles. The pro
prietor, R. V. Pierce, M. D of
Buffalo, offers $500 for a case of Catarrh
that he can not cure. Sent by mall
on receipt of sixty cents. Address
