WHERE IS MY WANDERING BOY
Wo have often been touched by
tho hymn, "Where Is My Wondering
Doy Tonight," and a few days ng0
, , 1 ,l.
wo had an example of the great
need of care and training for boys.
Wo havo niways
havo niways uccn impresseu
with tho fact that boys aro often
neglected neglected ln the home,
sometimes ln tho cchool and Sunday
bcnool and Church.
Girls seem to bo moro attractive
and possibly a Httlo moro tractablo.
They can bo dresaed moro effective-
ly and, therefore, can make a better
show in tho HUlo programs and cn-
tertalnmcnts. They nre, therefore,
placed In tho frcnt rank for show,
nnd tho boys tako the back seat
nnd are soon mado to think that their
placo Is in tho background, and, ns
a result, they sook their own com
pany, nnd very often ln places vhero
they ought not to be, nnd do thing'
they ought not to do. They thus aro
led Into vufgailty and coarseness iu
dress, ln looks and In speech.
What wonder then that tho state
must havo a school of reform? And J
what wonder that many 'of Its In
mates aro from homes of fairly good
standing ln thoir community?
But the boy that touched our hearts
was a real wanderor. From his story
ho had a father and mother of the
most vicious cort, nnd ho was an
unwclcomo addition to the family.
Consequently, as coon as he could
toddlo "about, ho left homo, wander
ed from Tonncaceo Into Kentucky,
was sent to tho School of Reform for
some misdemeanor nnd, after a num
ber of months there, escaped, too
far gone and too vicious for almost
any mothods of training.
In Bcrca ho was apprehended by
tho Marshal, Mr. Harrison, and taken
beforo tho pollco Judge, Mr. Holllday,
who returned him to tho Schojl
of Reform at Lexington. Tho Mar
shal wa3 told thero that ho was In
corrlglbia and hopeless, and that they
wished ha had escaped into Tennessee
so that tho statu would bo rid cf
What If he wero your boy? Of
courso. If you wcro as low and de
graded as hlo parents, you might
havo little feeling for him.
Tho incident serves to impress up
on our minds tho looseness of par
ental government how far remov
ed wo aro from, not only tho ideal,
but tho good, when it comes to stand
ards of government, ln tho homo
nnd society, and training, nnd, moro
than all, breeding. Why should not
society regulate marriage? Why
bhould we not teach eugenics? Why
should the, stto not havo something
to say about tho product of tho
homo? How long will tho uttor wasto
of life go on for the waat of us
simple a knowledge as regards human
llfo as every intelligent farmer nnd
stock raiser knows.
Wo not only need to savo people
savo tho boys but wo need to adopt
somo methods that will prevent tho
need of saving thom prevent tho
badness and loavo them saved. Jt
sometimes occms foolish to talk
about salvation. That wo havo to do
so Is our Indictment. Does It not
look as if our civilization commits
us to the policy of supplying as
many and vicious nnd outragoously
bad as possiblo ln order to get to

It was imposlblo that they could
