1. Why is it so many boys are
suffered to grow up in our country,
without a practical koiowledge of the
means of an honest -livelihood? In
other Words. wIly are not boys;
all boys, everywhere taught to work? Is
there any disgrace in being able, from
earlf education to earn an honest liv
ing by the labor of one's hands, when
ever it may be necessary? Do 'not
parents do an injury to their children,
and to the community at large, by
raising them up and thrusting them
ouit upon the world unprepared to
earn a competent subsistence'? Are
their sons too good to work? Alas for
want of correct views on this subject,
and of useful,.honorable employ ment,
hndreds are led first to drinking and
gambling houses, and then to disgrace
2. In a country like this, where op
enings for industry and enterprise are
so numerous, where every healthy man
may do well if he will, why should
men, and especially young men, corn
plain of a want of the means of liv
ing? It is certainly not because there
is nothing to be done-iot because
they are either too proud or too
lazy to work. That's it. A false ed
ieation, connected with false views of
their own important selves, lead them
to conclude that honest labor is degra
ding. Yes, degrading; though they
will not often speak out, thus, this is
the feeling. To soil their pretty hands
and dirty their fine unpaid-for cloth
es, is a stoop to which they cannot sub
mit-their pride Will not allow it;
hence they are too often ready to
resort to almost any course rather than
go honestly to work. In all this there
is a radical error, which in niost cases
may be traced to the influence of
early education. The parent was,
perhaps, some thirty-seven and a
half cents better off than his nr-igh

suppose that his son was only suited

country. I low upon the ftee of
