leutly wended their way to the city, heralded
b the crier, that the Coffee House was still
giving refreshment and repose to the tired

gets to the boarding school is that his par

thus accomplished he spends the balance of
bis time in devising means bv whlli tn ,1a.
fraud the old man out of funds, wit h which
to support his new dignity; at first the old
man deals out his hard earnings very re
luctantly, but the rising gen as soon learns
that when all other means fall he oan reach
the lather's purse through his vanity.
He writes him a very learned and lov
ing letter, full of learned expressions,
which he has nicked nn in tho
f iddy society In which he has been send
ng his time and money, tells him that - he
has already passed through a large num

others, none of which the old man known
anything about. He states t hat he is grow
ing mm, owing to hard stud v; after six or
8 pages of this learned stuff he closes, wit h
your obedient and loving son, John. The
old man thinks that his son will surely be
come a very learned aud distinguished
man. He takes up the letter to re-read it
and he finds a post script at the top of the
page, stating, that owing to the large num
ber of books he has had to buy he must
have RJU0.no more, and the old .man willing
ly expresses it to nim.' This mav lie a little
over-drawn, but there is more truth
than fiction in iu I have heard it said that

The young girl, when she gets to the
boarding school, she, too, soon learns lo
think that papa Is a dear, good old soul,
whose peculiar and special mission on
earth is to make money ior her to spend.
She reads novels and the fashionable maga
zines of the day, aud returns home after a
year or two a graduate. She has studied
well the latest costumes for brides, aud can
speak fluently of the costumes worn by the
distinguished ladies on special occasions,
from the flood down to the present dsy, but
would consider herself disgraced ior life If
she thought any one believed she knew
how to cook a meals of vituals, or to make
the dress she wears.
There is but one way to educate vour chil
dren without having them spoiled while
attending boarding schools that is to build"
np yonr country schools, employ good and
efficient teachers, professional teachers, and
not pick np some youth who proposes to
teach school for a year or two as a stepping
stone to some other profession. Send your
children regular; pay a tuition which will
justify a competent teacher to teach; disci
pline your child at home, and allow the
teacher to do so at school, aud then you can
have your children educated, and al the
same time have them at home where you
can watch over their habits and morals.
Many parents do not control their children
