CoL F. W. Parker, now of Chicago,
known to be the author of the Quincy
Methods of teaching, in a lecture delivered
a few days since, at Brooklyn, on the True
Theory of Education, or Learning How to
Do by Doing denounced the preva
lent methods, e. g., teaching a child to read
by lessons in spelling, pronunciation,
pauses, emphasis, etc.; making arithmetic
a matter of rules and tables, language a
thing of grammar, and history a dry study
of dates. According to a reporter's notion
the Colonel's programme required that all
the spelling books should be burned up,
the child should begin to learn history
from fairy tales; geology, zoology and phi
losophy from Indian stones; should not
submit his will to his mother's, nor his
teacher's, lest, on going into the world, he
gravitate toward some leader, and so dem
agogues flourish." We fear that the re
porter was a little off.
Mr. Henry F. Gillig, of the American
Exchange in Europe, with offices in Lon
don and Paris, is in Cleveland, and said to
a reporter of the Leader, the other day:
It is of course natural that the grisly phan
tom of the cholera should present himself to
the apprehension of many pater Jamxliai,
especially now wben thousands ot Amen
cans are thinking about a tour in Europe
and are counting over the jrot and
com, the busiiess stagnation, increased cost
of living on Ue Continent, eta, etc But it
is well that intending tourists should realize
that tbis cholera is a phantom a phantom
and nothing more. The cholera visitations
to which Italy and France were subjected last
year were due to special local causes which
were soon understood and suppressed,
and which did not exist at all in
any sections ordinarily frequented by Ameri
can and English tourists. The immediate
application to the question of the best scien
tific minds in Europe brought about a stay of
the plague In a manner which would have been
thought supernatural in the old days. The
thing cniefly remarkable about the suppres
sion ot cholera in Paris in 1881 was the
masterly manner in which it was isolated.
Xo sooner had it made its appearance in the
quarters where persons predisposed by their
diet and their small vitality to tall aa easy
prey to epidemics had been attacked, than the
municipal authorities, assisted by the whole
force of the specialists from the hospitals, fell
upon the quarter and disinfected and
scourged it with so many forcible reme
dies and precautions, that the monster,
discomfited, slunk away. Hence the fear
that in the warm and damp days ot
early spring the cholera may revive and spread
with startling rapidity throughout Paris is
entirely groundless. If there ever was any
absolute danger of a general spread of the
disease in Pans, there is none whatever now,
forewarned is forearmed, and from the ex
perience at Toulon and llarseilies the French
medical authorities hare learned enough to
justify them in their assertions that such a
spread of the plague as sometimes occurred in
the Middle Ages is entirely impossible in any
of the great and well arranged cities of Eu
We have the pleasure of a personal ac
quaintance with Mr. Gillig and know him
to be a very intelligent and trustworthy
gentleman. We will be glad to see his
prophecies prove true.
Mr. John Sherman, of Ohio, is rather a

feast our eyes upon him occasionally. We

HOW TO SELECT CLOTHING.
A Tallor'a Advice aa to How to Detect
Cotton Warp and Shoddy in Clothes.
"The stuff in this suit of black clothes
you made for mo is not what I took it
for," said one of an up-town tailor's
customers to him the other day in a re
porter's hearinp. "I lia e just had them
cleaned, and now sea how they have
whitened at the edges."
"That's because of tho cotton warp
in the material, which the scouring soon
makes apparent," replied the tailor,
"But you assured mo particularly that
the material wasn't shoddy."
"So I did, and I told you tho truth.
But at tho same timo I told you that it
was cheap American goods, and that is
just what it is a well-appearing Amer
ican woolen manufacture, with a large
percentage of cotton warp. If you had
wanted shoddy, I could have sent jou
where you'd have got something still
cheaper, for shoddy is a kind of goods I
won't mako up forlove or money. But,
if you will remember, I showed you
much better but more expensive goods,
of both foreign and American manu
facture, wliicli I oflertil to recommend
heartily enough. But you were bent on
having tho poorer but well-appearing
goods, and so consulted your own wishes
instead of my advice."
The customer seemed to have nothing
to offer against theso statements, ana
presently took his departure, apparently
much dissatisfied with himself, if not
with the tailor.
"How," asked the reporter, "is an
inexperienced buyer to distinguish be
tween all-woolen goods and tho mater
ial containing a cotton warp, of which
that gentleman was complaining?"
"By merely raveling out tho rough
edge of the material and inspecting the
threads," said the tailor. "Anyone can
tell a cotton thread from a woolen
thread. The one will break short in
tWo, on bein" tested, while tho other
will fray and floss out, liko yarn and
worsted. In this way you can readily
detect a mixture of cotton warp in a
sham all-woolen fabric."
"How do you detect shoddyincloth?"
"In just Uie same way, and even
more easily. Fray out two or three
threads from the rough edge, and un
twist them. If they contain shoddy, it
will drop out of th'e tw ist, sometimes
like sand, and then apin in an impal
pable dust, that will like enough make
you sneeze. If jou'd inhale enough of
tho stuff it would bo apt to give you both
a headache and sore throat, for most
shoddy is rank poison. Ever in a shod
"Well, I was, and I know something
about it Fact is I worked in a shoddy
factory just one week when I was a
much younger and more necessitious
person than I am now: Necessitous?
Well. I should say so, for nothing short
of starvation could have driven me to
seek emplov ment in that poison mill.
Talk about qtiicksilvcr-niining and that
sort of thing for turning live w orkers
into galvanized corpses! Why, such
employment is positively invigorating
compared with a shoddy mill! I stood
it iust one week, and was then laid up
for six months. Lucky I switched off
when I did, or I'd have been atrophied
into kingdom come long ago. Even as
it was it. was a close shave.
"How is shoddy made?"
"lean tell jou how it was made
twelve or fifteen years ago, when I
served my week's apprenticeship at it.
They may have made improvements in
the milling since then, though, of course,
the product itself is just the game mean,
swindling poisonous stuff it always was.
I was placed over a sort of machine
something like a patent straw cutter,
only, in Leu of straw, you feed it with
cloth scraps, remnants, clippings, and
rags. These passed through the teeth
of the machine on to revolving; knives,
just as in a straw cutter, which minced
them up pretty fine. After that they
passed through another and yet another
machine, getting minced finer and finer
at each operation, until the stuff was re
duced to a coarse powder. This pow
der was then bolted, and the fine pow-
der or dust that passed through the last
seive was tho beautiful stuff called
shoddy, or flock. Then came the dy
ing process, and the dirty job was com
plete, l never got any lurtner than
feeder to the primary machine. Al
though I kept a wet sponge tied con
stantly over my month and nostrils, tho
work was almost too much for mo at
the end of the first day. Why, onco an
hour I would squeeze out that sponge
muzzier, and the water that came from
it would be blacker than your hat, and
smellcd worse than any ragpicker's
sack. At the end of the week I pocket
ed my $6 wages as if I had stolen it,
and s'lid for home liko a rocket, where I
was sick abed a long time afterward."
"How did the other operatives stand
it so much better than you?"
"Some of them didn't, while those
that did had cast-iron throats and lungs
liko bellows, I suppose. Some men can

"But in ready-made clothing?"
"There jou have no means of detect

no more than just for me to say that
many firms that deal in nothing else are

to the precautions I hav e given j ou, be
very careful, in choosing goods, whether

"What is tho exact meaning of full

SWEET USES OF COOKKKY.
What to Eat and A old The Value of
In onr existing modern cookery very
few simple and iincompoumlcd tostes
arc still left to us; even thing is so
mixed up together that only by an ef
fort of deliberate experiment can one
discover w hat are the special effects of
special tastes upon the tongue and pal
ate. Salt is mixed with almost even
thing we cat sal sapit omnia and
pepper or cajenno is nearly equally
common. Butter is put into the peas
which have been previously adulterated
by being boiled with mint; and cucum
ber is unknown except in conjunction
with oil and vinegar. '1 his makes it
comparatively dillictilt for Us to realize
the distinctness of the elements which
go to make up most tastes aswu actual
ly experience them. Moreover, a great
many eatable objects have hardlj' any
taste of their own, properlv- speaking,
but onlj- a feeling of softness or hard
ness, or gliitinoitsncss in the mouth,
maiulj observed in the act of chewing
them. For example, plain boiled rice
is almost wholly insipid, but oven iu its
plainest form salt has usually been
boiled with it, and in practice we gen
erally cat it with sugar, prescrvos, cur
ry or some other strongly -llav ored con
diment. Again, plain boiled tapioca
and sago (in water) are as nearly taste
less as anj thing can be; they merely
vield a feeling of gumruiuess; "but milk,
in which they are oftenest cooked, gives
them a relish, (in the sene here restrict
ed) and sugar, eggs, cinnamon or nut
meg are usually added by w ay of flav
oring. Even "ttirbot has hardly any
taste proper, except iu the glutinous
skin, which has a faint relish; the epi
cure values it rather because of its soft
ness, its delicacy and its light llesh.
Gelatine bj- itself is merely swallow
able; we must mix sugar, wine, lemon
juico and other flavoring extracts in or
der to make it into good jelly- Salt,
spices, essences, vanilla, vinegar,
pickles, capers, catsups, sauces, chut

are our civilized expedients for adding
the pleasure of pungenev and acidity to
naturally insipid foods, by stimulating
the nerves'of touch in the tongue, just
as sugar is our tribute to the pure gust

and the various fats u-ed in fry iug to
the sense of relish which forms the last
clement in our compound taste. A

just conv alcsccnt, but in robust health
wo demand the delights of egg and
breadcrumb, wliicli are, after all, only
tho vehicle for the appetizing grease.

in tho unsophisticated nursery, but iu
the pampered dining-room it requires

of centuries of experience in that direc

once became the object of attention.
Inis action was follow ed bv a ireneral
and very liberal alms-giving by the tailor-made
men. Coins were "showered
into the beggar's ragged hat, and the
conclusion naturally drawn would be
that the party had just returned from a
church revival where "charity" w as tho
subject of the sermon.
While walking up Chestnut street, the
trickj' dandy a little in advance, tho
bon-ton crowd siiddenlj- stopped before
a poor, decrepit, blind beggar. Dude
No. 1 entered into an animated conv er
sation with his companions.
"O, no; charitable motives have very
little to do with the proceeding," re
marked the peace guardian.
"That's the last act of a clever trick
of the dude. You see, it's done in this
waj-," continued the officer. The fash
ionable young man ami the blind beg
gar, strange as it maj seem, are con
federates. The beggar stations himself
on a principal thoroughfare, receiving
whatever extra alms lie can get, while
the dude hies oft' to a neighboring hotel
or billiard-room. He pl.ivs several
games of pool or billiards" with the
young bloods there assembled, is very
companionable, inv ites them to drink,
and finally proposes to patronize some
other saloon iu the vicinity.
"Tho beggar is stationed between
these two places. The j oung fellows
innocently comply. The raur walks
up the street past the blind beggar,
who at this moment wails ndl. The
sharper dude "is suddenly coliscience

two into the man's hat and jocularlv in

a rule they comply. Then in a banter

he will contribute the most, the stake of
the vanquished to be given to the beg
gar. A weak point in the averago
j-onng fashionablu is struck, the bet is
accepted, the sharp dude contributes 10
or more, the bloods have their pride of
birth aroused and cover that sum. At
length a limit is reached, the contribu

the dude probably among the number,

A veteran member of Congress, a
man who has Ix'en in public life for
twenty v ears, was asked bv a corres
pondent of the Chicago 'tribune if he
thought that there were female influ
ences in the lobbv powerful enough to
seriously affect legist ition. "Indirect
ly, ves,'' saiil he. "I know that the
Southern men are verj susceptible to in

an equally sure means, for there was
not a Southern soldier who would not
risk his neck a dozen times to chase af

"Now, I will tell jou," said he,
slightly shifting the subject, "how wo
men affect legislation sometimes by re

this ladv asking him to call atherhousc

the same hour set for the consideration

cried like a babj He was president of
a Georgia railroad then, and in New
York on business. He vv as a regular
martinet in his profession, stern and un
relenting. He was an old bachelor,
too, and so far as is known never had
tender feelings tow ard vv oman or kin.
He had lived a life sohtarj- and abso

prised to see such emotion in such a
man, but none of us said anj thing ex

too, for in less than six months that
bank was nearly ruined by a heavy em
bezzlement by its cashier." Chicago
