not reach $800 a year, so that sober

until ho has amassed a competence
or can marry a fortune. If ho bo

' "Rich" Mortar.
In conversing recently with one
of tho oldest and most successful
contractors and builders of Chicago
I learned a very curious fact in re
lation to mortar. He says that the
mortar in tho interior of walls, es
pecially if it be what is called "rice"
mortar, is liable never to harden,
but to contain its soft consistency
even for centuries. This can only
happen where the interior wall is
hermetically scaled against the ex
ternal air. This both arrests evap
oration and shuts oil' the chemical
operation of tho atmosphere. My
informant said that in England,
not long ago, an architect dug in a
thick stono wall 80(1 years old and
took from between tho interior
stones soino mortar as soft as i was
tho day the wall was built; nnd ho
himself has mado somo discover
ies of the same character. Any
one, ho says, who doubts thp possi
bility of such a thing can easily
satisfy himself of it by putting
some rich mortar into a glass bot
tle and hermetically sealing it. Ho
will find that It will never got any
Juu'dor than when it was put Into
It. This curious fact about mor
tar may bo the explanation of some
hitherto Inexplicable and horrible
casaltles that have taken place
by tho sudden collapse of groat
Why au,WonTen,, is
Never Woman's Woman.
Men say they cannot understand
why a "man's woman" Is never a
"woman's woman." JJocauso a
man's woman is not a woman's
woman, men invariably put tho
ciiiisesdoiHi to slbtcr woman's en

AVool mixed at
i hundreds whom this double-faced
cap fits, women world as a whole is
neither envious or jealous. Of ex
ceptional cases I do not speak. But
men never realize ami never can
be taught that a man's woman "has
two faces under a hood," one for
men and another for women. Do
my male readers, it I have any, be
gin to see chinks of light now?
They should after that last sentence
A man's woman, with men, is
bright, animated, entertaining,
coaxing, toadying or tallying, as
the case demands. Put her with a
women and she is a poke. She
won't do this that or the other.
She simply yawns through time
until tho return of the coat tails. It
is an almost invariable rule that
the woman most liked by man is
least liked by her own sex. The
reason why I've just been telling.
A certain Houston judge is very

OUR EDUCATIONAL COLUMN,
Methods of Teaching.
Methods may be divided into
three classes general, special and
personal. General methods under
lie the whole system of instruction
and are for all times, places and
persons. They are like the axioms
of mathematics so self evident as
to admit of no proof or discussion.
Among them we will only stop to
mention a few. Never tell a child
what he already knows, or what he
can just as well find out for
himself. That method is tho be.-t
that leads the pupil lo investigate
for himself. Attention must be
cultivated as a basis oi memory
Obedience is a fundamental law of
teaching Tn addition to these ax
iomatic .statements there are gen
eral methods by no means self evi
dent, to know which, require study,
and to use which, require practice.
Among those higher methods may
lit! mentioned a knowledge of how
we think and now our pupils think;
what the mind is and how it acts;
how to impart knowledge in the
fewest words; and how to influence
mind and mold character. These
belong to the philosophy of educa
tion and call forth the very highest
powers of thought. None but roy
al teachersattain eminence in these
departments of instruction.
Special methods are as numer
ous as autumn leaves. They In
crease in every school room, lux
uriate in institutes and multiply in
More volumes could be published
setting (hem forth than in any
other department of school work.
There are special ways of keeping
order, securing punctuality, report
ing delinquincies, and teaching
each branch of study. Some of
these ways have some value but
most of them tire 'inly chaff and
trash. There is nothing on which
teachers are ko self conceited and
egotistical as their special methods.
They will often bore auditors by
the hour setting them forth, and
some even imagine they could rev
olutionize the world by them if
they had a chance. It is not of
much use to publish special meth
ods. Wo must wear our own shoes
while teaching ami not attempt to
stumble along in our friend's be

than ours do us. Each teacher

In how many schools Is the art of

Out til' 11 ,loli.
The J)liutah said, editorially,
hist night, that Allen O, Myres had
not been discharged from tho Jin
qittrer, but was simply taking n
throu weeks leave of absence. This
Is all well enough to tell marines,
initlt tioirtgotlown with newspa
per mon, especially with a Jlemltl
m the mi:
reporter who yesterday, from a Cin
cinnati, man obtained some inside
facts on tlie Myres leave of absence
business. As a matter of fact My
ers Is no longer employed on tho
h'uritirer, and John R. McLaln is
ifgain astride the tripod ihtho
Managing editor's room where ho
is playing sad havoc witli Myers'
friends who were called to positions
on the paper. The great chestnut
writer Rill Taylor, has been notifi
ed that his stuff cannot bo used in
the Knrjuirer'H columns, and John
Malloy, the Columbus correspon
dent, will get the grand "run" just
as soon as a suitable man can bo
found to take his place. O. C. Hoop
er, formerly of (he Dhpaleh, who
was transferred with his "variety"
column, under tin "odd and even"
bond by Myers to the Enquirer,
has been reduced to die ranks, and
is now writing heads on the mani
fold sent by the Associated Press
and Gnth, who, by the way, has got
his place on the first page again.
This last fact is also one of the
reasons assigned for Myers' dismiss
it I from the position as managing
editor, in which he swelled around
for a few brief months. Oath, than
whom John McLean has no closer
journalistic friend protested so vig
orously against having his chest
nut specials shoved off the first
page, as Myers proeeetled to tlo
when begot the reins firmly in
his hands, that McLean came back
to Cincinnati and found that Myers
was running the Kiajuirer a gootl
tleal like the old woman kept hotel
in Kentucky, ami that if the Dem
ocracy was ever again to have any
thing in Hamilton county, Myers
must walk the plunk, which he did
on last Monthly, and the most cau
sal observer could tit once notice 11
change in the paper. Gath got hi
three columns of the praise of
Rliiine, the Washington correspon
dent commence to critisize the ad
ministration and a complete
change was made in the character
of the editorial utterances, all rad
ically different from what the pa
per contained when Myers was on
-.The reasons for Myers' fall are
not unlike those which came to
Cardinal Woolsey too much am
bition ami n tendency to antagon
ize McLean's friends in Cincinnati
especially Lew Rernard. This gen
tleman, prior to Myers' advent
was accustomed to make the En
quirer editorial rooms his head
quarters and otherwise tleportetl
himself a privileged character
around the establishment. This
Myers would not tolerate, which
added io a difference between the
two gentlemen, as to how the pri
maries should be run, resulted in
nn open rupture which McLean
could not heal, only by demanding
the head of Myers on a charger.
All these things with others, not
now necessary to mention, con
spired to bring about the fall of
Myers, and with him Taylor, Mal
loy, Hooper, Islor untl others who
hail been placed in good positions
on the paper. '"What a fall was
that countrymen!" Rut tho his
tory or the world is full of like in
stances which Myers can peruso
with profit during ills "three weeks
leave of absence." In tho mean
time Mel, can is fighting tho Presi
dent damning Civil Service Reform
and coaching Rlaine for Presiden
cy in 1SSS, much to the disgust of
Ohio Democrats who found the En
quirer under Myres' management
much more like the simon pure ar
ticle than anything the have had
since the palmy days of Faren &
McLean, and much better Democ
racy, than they are likely to get
from tho alleged your Napoleon of
A Mistake Corrected.
The reinstatement of District-Attorney
Ronton, of Missouri, is one
of the most oncourging acts of
President Cleveland's Administra
tion. It shows that ho Is capable
of correcting a mistake. The act
is one of plain justice in itself. It
Is all the more commendable be
cause t Is the admission and cor
rection of an error.
In taking this action the Presi
dent admits the Jdstlce of Tho
VorhVn criticism upon Mr. Ron
ton's suspension when It was mado
that It was an unjustifiable Inva
sion of tho right of free speech, all
tlia nioro wrong because really fla
grant disobedience of tho Presi
dents' order by officials who openly
manipulated political caucuses and
conventions stood unpunished and
