OUR EDUCATIONAL COLUMN,
Learning at tliu Expense of
Has It over occurred to our rend
ers that the moat eminent nnd suc
cessful men tuul women in nil the
professions, Hpent their youth in
the country, as distinguished from
There must bo a reason other
than chance for this nnd it in the
duty of thoHO having the cure and
enrly cducntion of our children, to
search for the cause and apply the
The answer cannot be that our
children born of country homes arc
of more vigorous mental forces, for
tho law of nature which proclaims
that "like begets like" applies to all
conditions of society, without re
gard to location, and tho infant of
tho country has no advantage over
tho infant of tho city in the matter
of mental forces.
Tho reason must then Ho in
something other than the place of
birth, for the fact remains.
Again, tho system of education
in our cities nnd larger towns is in
many respects better than that of
tho rural districts, nnd all other
things being equal should produce
correspondingly better results, but
notwithstanding the disadvantage
in opportunities in the acquirement
of knowledge the country and vil
lage bred youth is continually
pushing to the front and outstrip
ping his city competitor in the race
We are of the opinion that the
fault lies in the physical, and not
the mental development. In the
city plan w'ri lmve too much men
tal culture to tho neglect nnd det
riment of tho development of a
vigorous, honlthy constitution, and
when manhood arrives, wo discover
that the mind has no physical sup
port, and soon yields to tho defi
We confine the youth of our cities
and larger towns too many hours of
the day while the process of mind
stuffing is pushed to tho last degree,
thus using up the vital forces which
nature has provided for tho produc
tion of bone nnd muscle, and laying
the foundation of vigorous imin
hopd. No one has tho right to x'.ssumo
the duties of a teacher who is una
ble to direct our youth how to be
come perfect in physical develop
ment, as well as in mental attain
ments. It is falso practice to keep chil
dren confined in the school room on
an average of six hours per day for
three-fourths of their lives be
tween the ages of six and eighteen
years, and it is preposterous to
expect good and lasting service
from a well stored mind in an in
dividual who does not possess a
correspondingly well developed and
vigorous constitution. We are
aware that some will say that our
children have sufficient exercise
but pardon us if we are skeptical
on this subject.
If it bo true that tho confine
ment and study incident to the
stuffing process does not retard and
in many instances prevent proper
physical development, how explain
tho fact thnt so ninny of our youth
nre turned out of school nt seven
teen and twenty with .health im
paired, nnd this condition often
found in those who havo been most
studious nnd receive the most
praises for mental attainments?

educators to so. control tho youth in

How Loiiff Will The Land
Almost every one has seen that
natural curiosity known as the Dry
Land Turtle, or "Tortoise" and know
and remember tho peculiar habits
of tho reptile. It is found in the
high lands of the Middle, Eastern
and Western States, and is peculiar
in having a shell so arranged as to
allow it to entirely hide its legs and
head and close up its shell so per
fectly as to resemble in appearance
a common small sized bowlder. So
far as wo know they arc perfectly
harmless, and when a boy we have
carried one of the species for half a
day in our pockets without its
making tho least perceptible mo
tion, and so timid are they that
considerable time must elapse after
their being handled before they will
attempt to move.
In shape they arc almost round,
tho lower part, or plastron, being
flat and the back or carapax, con
vex. We have seen them of all
sizes, from that of a half dollar, the
shell being beautifully mottled with
bright red, yellow and dark brown,
to five Inches in diameter and of a
dark ash color.
Popular tradition attributes to
them remarkable longevity but
authenticated data on this point is
somewhat rare, and tho specimens
found with early dates carved on
the shell are somewhat mythical.
We were however told a few days
ago by Mr. Jonathan Martin, a gen
tleman living in the western part
of tho county, that in August of the
year 187f, ho captured one of these
creatures, and carved the initials .of
his name together with the date on
its shell with his penknife, after
which he let it go. In August of
this year, within two hundred
yards of tho same spot, he found
the same turtle bearing the marks
of his handiwork on its shell as
plainly as if recently done, and he
added tho second date August,
1880, in the samo manner as before.
He informs us that the turtle had
not preceptlbly Increased in size,
and appeared as lively and youth
ful us when its shell was first
marked. Knowing Mr. M. as we
do we can vouch for tho truth of
tho above, and would suggest that
it is proof that these creatures aro
not migratory in their habits but
continuo year after .year near tho
samo spot, and thnt they do not
change their protective shell.
The specimon spoken of must have
been full grown when first marked,
and bad carried the snme shell for
cloven years, nnd tho question
arises how much longer will It con
tinue to carry its innrked cover

A humorous lecturer is reported
by the Philadelphia Times as rela
ting this incident:
I gave tho show in tho hotel dining-room,
and had everybody roar
ing with laughter except one aw
fully sedate-looking man. I tried
my funniest gags upon him and was
wiltl to awaken a gurgle or at least
a smile. But all in vain. His face
was as solemn as a tombstone
through it all. After the show,
however, fancy my surprise to see
the melancholy cuss come up and

Artemus Ward used to tell a sim
ilar but a much better story. He
said that once, while on a lecture
tour, night found him at a small
town in Nevada. In the laud-lord
of the hotel he recognized a friend
of his boyhood who gave him u
hearty greeting. Supper over the
landlord said to hisguo-tt: "Now,
Brown, we hardly ever have any
show of any kind in this place, and
I don't think we ever had a lecture.
Can't you give us your lecture up
In the ball-room ? It will please
the people mightily, and I'll take It
as a great favor if you will," With
characteristic good nature, Arte
mus consented. The ball-room was
well filled when he arose to speak,
and before be had been on his feet
a minute he made an observation
which provoked a roar of laughter.
At which the landlord, his face
white with rage, ro,so and advanced
toward the platform with the re
mark: "One minute, Mr. Brown."
Artemus paused, and the landlord
having taken his place beside him,
tlrew a revolver from bis back pock
et and, addressing the audience,
said: 'Ladies and gentlemen, the
speaker is a pnrticklar friend of
mine, and if lie's Interrupted agin,

can proceed, Mr. Brown.' Artemus
proceeded, and although be gave
them his funniest lecture, he re
ported that there was afterward no
further interruption." N. Y. Trib

The Salvationists Must Go.
Salvation Army troubles have
latterly rather subsided, but thero
aro signs, with the returning seasons
"lit town," of their breaking out
again. Thoro have beou serious
disorders In Troy, N. Y., resulting
In conflicts between the Army and
the police. It Is surely time that
these disturbers of the peace were
summarily dealt with. It is clear
us can be that the Salvationists go
Into this thing as a business as
entirely so as the professed base
ballers. But the ball-players do
not as determinedly or systematic
ally break the peace, while It is the
set object of the Salvationists to
arouse all the popular excitement
they can and then to pose as
martyrs. It is a most disgusting
exhibition, and so clearly lawless
that there should be not difficulty
in dealing with it justly and firmly.

The editor of the Toledo Times is
in a position to speak in the light
of knowledge regarding to tho par
don of John P. Evans. In a late
issue lie says:
"John P. Fvitns, pardoned by
Gov. Foraker and released from
tho Ohio Penitentiary, whero he h.-.d
just commenced serving a hcntence
for ballot-box stealing, points a
moral and adorns a Republican tale.
The whole thing is characteristic of
Bob Kennedy, the Rump, and For
aker, tho chief engineer of the dirty
partisun business. Evans is re
membered by tho writer, in his
wild and incoherent testimony be
fore the Legislative Investigation
Committee, as a witness to whom
lying was a real pastime and per
jury a welcome employment. He
was both formally and Informally
.impeached, flatly contracted by
reputablo witnesses, tho testimo
ny of the ballot-box itself, and com
pletely broken down on cross ex

disgusting spectaclo of perjury ex

even sickened Governor Noyes, one
of the counsel for' the contestors,
"and yet to manufacture capital for

How Tariff WorkM in Maine.
Mr. Plllihtiry's Lewlstnti Hperch.
At least three-fourths of the men
employed In these lumbering opera
tions in Arlstook and Penobscot
counties come across the line from
the provinces beyond. Many of
them take their (cams acrosss, giv
ing bonds at tho Custom House for
their return, work during the win
ter, take their money anil return
home in tho spring; others remain
to work driving tho logs down tho
streams, ami some work at sawing
in the mills for the season. These
tlmbei'lniid owners are shrewd fol
lows. They work this protection
racket at both ends. They mako
every man who buys a thousand
foot of lumber pay this tax on it
under the claim thnt it is done to
protect us from tho product of
cheap labor in the provinces. After
they have made you pay tho tax
for that purpose, they go over tho
line and get tho cheap labor Itself
and bring it over to do tho work
for them. Thus they make money
at both ends, and the poor Ameri
can laborer loses at both ends. You
are obliged to pay tho taxes on
every stick of lumber you buy, ami
then the cheap labor of the provin
ces is brought in to work in tho
camp, upon the streams and in tho
saw mills, and thus force wages
down to their standard, so that the
American laborer is obliged to
work at the same rate or not work
at all and so he loses both ways,
and yet it is all done in the interest
of the poor laboring man.
Ways of Wine-Jobbers.
The wine-Jobbers sometimes re
sort to n scheme that puts money in
their pockets, but keeps that of their
customers long tied up in cellars.
For example, a new brand of wine
conies into tho market. The first
consideration of the jobber is how
to get a run on It. The customary
advertising methods aro brushed
aside ns inadequate and slow, for
you should know that wine must go
with a fizz! hang! boom! elso It will
be a losing speculation.
Three good-looking, well-dressed
gentlemen walk into a leading
hotel, register from distant and dif
ferent cities, and order a suniptous
dinner. The brad-waiter is asked
to produce the wine list of the house.
They scan it carefully and begin 16
growl. "Never saw a first-class
hotel with so meager and back
numberish a wine list. Haven't
you the Marco Bozaris wine here?"
The waiter politely replies that it
is not in the house if they do not
find it on the list.
"Then send out for it," is the com
mand. "Very sorry, gentlemen, but I am
not authorized to do that."
The three Marco Bozaris drink
ers oratorictilly enlarge upon tho
second-class character of a hotel
that does not keep "the best wlno
that ever was brought into New
York," being careful to make their
oratory and the text thereof under
ftood by all the guests in the room.
After dinner they saunter up to tho
office and ask the proprietor why
they can't get Marco Bozaris' wino
at his tables, expatiate generally
on its superior qualities, and clev
erly, though boisterously, mantigo
to leave an impression all over the
house that life is of little worth
without Marco Bozaris wine.
The next day tho new brand is
added to the beleaguered hotel's
wine list. The other day I counted
the list at dinner, and found that
