We degrade Hfo by our folllos and
our vices and then complain that tho
unbappincss which is only their ac
companiment is inherit in the consti
tution oi things
One of tho greatest drawbacks to
prophesying tho result of political
conventions Lj that by tbo tlmo it be
comes safe to make a prediction tho
dullest observers know just as much
about it as tbo prophet
Wiiex any lino oi product is abunt
ant ia tho market and soils at low
price tbo best way to avoid tho effect
of these conditions is to market a lit
tle better quality of these things and
In a little better and more attractivo
londtlon
The great body of parents do not
< op to think out a plan of education
for their children They send them
to tbo schools and leave tho rest to
tho educational authorities reserving
n free right of criticism if anything Is
neglected or improperly done
Tr thera is any tingle question
which mora than another requires to
bo settled at once ana forever it is
that which Involves tho ownership of
propo ty and tho rightsof owners to
do as they please with that which they
havo accumulated or acquired

bocauso there are only 10000 paupers
in tho emp re As oriental nations
have queer ways of deal ng with some
question it might bo well to ascertain

Tmirrr years ago a woman in
business oflico would have been looked
upon not only with suspicion but with
jiosilivo disapproval Tho fact that
bho was there would have been an
argument for the worst put whatever
construction upon it one might Now
tho office in which women aro not
employed is ulnio t a novelty
TiIeel is thought to bo something
m irresistibly ridiculous in the idea of
the co lege graduatos doing anything
of muh importance that the collega
graduate joko has a high rank In tho
school of American humor ranking
even with tho goat the stovepipo
tho plumber and the summer girl
in season Xow as a matter of plain
tolid fact tho college graduate does
exert a vital influence upon the world
1ecrxE hare stayed at homo and
lived to be a century old A shorter
experienco than that has qualified
careful observers to assert that when
they hat o been unable to go in search
oi change a liltlo patience has ena
bled them to enjoy it at homo They
vcu say that the arrangement known
is tho seasons has been expressly
tontrived to bring wholesome varie
ties of climate around to tho doors of
folks who wait for them They aro
old fogies such people but there are
aompensatious about their way
Titur is an indulgent sentiment
toward youthful males of tho human
specie Whenever they offend tho
pica is set up tbut boys will bo
boys Nobody has ever suspected
tor a moment that boys would bo
jnrls some of tboai would not bo If
Ihey could for girl do not know hoT
to play base ball and they always
fail in trying to fling a somersault
But the boyishness of boys whilo it
goes a long way ia mitigation of cer
tain of their doings ovoa after they
get to bo 00 or 60 years of ago does
not put them absolutely outside of the
pale of law
J HorE is the mainspring of life If
nope bo gone men and women may
linger in a halfexistence that Is not
Hfo and often is scarcely preferable to
death If hopo be present to supply the
recoil with every shock of adverse cir
cumstance life often to ouch an one
seems belter worth living than if there
were no difficulties to be overcome
This is probably because of tho con
stant intellectual activity required to
adapt ones self to each changed rela
tion as it may arise so as to get as
much good and as little injury from it
as possible Making tho best of every
thing or active hopefulness as it may
be termed is therefore the secret of
successful living
Tho scores of technical 6chools es
tablished within the last few years
l > ear witness to the popular demand
for instruction In which have been
called the practical branches Let
tbeir fieuds accept tho challenge im
plied in that word practical and
make their fight if need be along the
ery line it suggests For what
should an education be if not to train
the forces of mjnd and muscle brain
and brawn to useful accomplishment
When purpose is higher than to fit a
young man or young woman to exist
for individual contentment and tho
happiness of other people Wo need
a training that will fit theso graduates
of our universities to live profitably
and well rather than one which will
mako them refiectivo or philosophic
and nothing more
Theue is far too little making the
best of life even among tlioso who
mean to do right and would seem to
throw away tho advantages they pos
sess It is nut enough lo hide onos
talents in a napk n Thoy rast bo
put to use that there may bo increase
Even rallnroa troubles and misfor
tunes are under the spur of acthe
hopefulness turned to tho great ad
vantage of the world It Is told of
Sir Walter Scott that the or gln of hi
literary career began when ho was
laid up several month while a broken
Jog was groriug togtlicr again It
was during tui int mil that with

Mr Templeton the husband

When the new library was first pro

on idea by which lie thought he could
get for the library the most complete
msdical library iu the country Ho
offered all the medical societies
of the City the priviliges of tha
library for their members on
condition that Ihey turned over to him
all their books to go into the cases aa
the property of the library Each ot
the societies had an immense number
of valuable books which wero poorly
cared for and thev jumped at this
chance ai Mr Crunden thought they
would Medical books are Terr costly

that the right to build the line be sold
by the city at auction It would bring
several hundred thousand dollars no
doubt There are plenty of electric
roads to the park but it is so big and
