THE PROPER STUDY OF MANKIND
' ' IS MAN.
' . B.ay read by Andrew Frank Carle, durlnc the
(rradnal'ing oxcrcineu of tbe Cairo High Uchool,
tfttday eveulnK, June 4, 1880.) .
Man is endowed with a three-fold nature.
The body, the mind and the spirit, lituce
the true man must lo fully dcvelopod, phy
sical', mentally and morally. The men-
, t&l development depends upon the physi
cal health to a great degree, and a man
without moral character is only a superior
kind of animal. In the education of a mun
we should begin with the physical so as to
prepare mind and constitution for the
intellectual education he is to receive in
after years. We commence with the child
and take his physical culture first. Gentle
' and suitable exercise gradually increasing
;; -with age makes a healthy, robust boy,
V; capable of grasping ideas and subjects
that he would have been unable to couipre
1 . Lend, had h been reared in a delicate
' , manner, for too much care in early life,
.make men languid, stupid and indolent,
; dreading work, when it is put before
'them. A popular writer says that health is
,! ,a large ingredient, iu what the world
calls talent. A man without it
may be a giant in intellect,
, Vut his deeds will bo the deedo
; of a dwarf. On the contrary let him have
a quick circulation, a good digestion; the
bulk, thews and sinews of a man, and
, though but a thimble full of brains, he
. will either blunder upon success or Bet
failure at defiance. Indeed practical suc
cess in life depends much more upon health
' than is generally imagined, since it insures
, , a capacity fur working in any calling. In
past times it has been too much the custom
of those who intended to become men of
learoiug to consider the body of
. little importance; to ' be treated as
V ; badly as possible. In fact in the case of
, ; the mediaeval scholars and monks it look as
it the thought the' worse the body whs
"; caltrcated and abused the better they
. r3uid be mentally and morally. It is not
' IPto recently that any great atteution
; ' -j Itea given to the physical culture in
C ecbooli oow evo7well regulated col
lece has Us ffrmnaMums and rowing and
other athletic sports are encouraged. Iu
this respect England has taken the lead for
many years past 60 well, in fact
has it been maintained - that tho
success of some jreat men has been attribut
ed to it. The duke of Wellington one
day while watching the boys eagaped in
their sports on the play" ground of Eton,
where his own' school days' were passed,
made the remark, that it was there tho bat
tle of Waterloo was won. Adam Clarke
when a boy, was only remarkable for tho
great strength he displayed in rolling
large stones, the secret, possibly, of some
of the power which he showed subsequent
ly in rolling forth large thoughts
in manhood ; and so it is in nearly nil cases
men of great mental achievements are men
ot good physcial development. Proceed
ing we find, that tho distinguishing fea
tures between man and the brutes, arc his
natural upright position and his superior
powers of reasoning; but of what use is
this superior power of reasoning to a man
in an uncultivated state? Intellectual cul
ture is as necessary as the physical and the
methods are similar. The true ends of ed
ucation are by a gradual development
of all the mental faculties, some think that
education by the state should extend no
farther than a simple rudimentary course in
the common branches, such as reading,
writing and arithmetic. True, these are
indispensible, but aro they all that is neces
sary to develop a citizen and fit bim for
public offices and state distinctions? Is it
not well in a state and country like ours,
that the poor have a chance to educate
their children as well ss the rich?
It certainly is well, and it would
raise a great majority of the ignorant class
above tbe influence of political imposition,
demagogues, who taking advantage of
their ignorance of the affairs of the coun
try persuade them to cast, their votes for a
particular candidate who may be working
directly against their own best interests.
The broad proposition upon which public
instruction 6hould rest is that the state has
the right to teach any branch of
knowledge that will promote
the general welfare are of
of its citzens. The government will be
held back and dragged down by the peo
ple, both will seek .the same constancy that
Who will be the most value to himself and
his state, the man that is educated and able
to take broad and comprehensive views of
important questions, or the man that is ed
ucated and ignorant of the outside world
and has no care for anything but his own
personal interests? Common sense teaches
us that the the educated man is the most
valuable. Therefore, in the brain of the
true man, there 6hould be no uncultivated
ground, every faculty should be fully de
veloped, fitting him for any office of honor,
trust and profit, and enable him to exercise
great power both in public and private life,
and making him an object of admiration
wherever ho troes, but the crown and glory
of life is character, and its possession
should be the aim of every young
man. Integrity, veracity, discussiou
are qualities that will ensure
general respect and true success. It is well
said that character is power is true in a
higher sense than that knowledge is power,
for mind without heart, intellect without
conduct may be powers in their own way,
but they may be powers only for mischief.
In a state and country like ours, a thou
sand selfish considerations tempt men to
become hypocrites and to put on the out
ward garb of morality; but all 6uch pre
tenses are contrary to our conception of
the true man. He must bo in real
ity what ho seems to be,
strong, "courageous, honest and faithful, a
power to be lei, in government and soci
ety, and a man well calculated to support,
a state, for what constitutes a state:
Not high railed battlement, or labored mound,
Thick wall, or moulted gate,
Not cities proud with apire. and turret, crowned,
Not bay. and broud armed port.

THE REPUBLICAN TICKET.
HOW AKE UONEBT JiKPUliLICANS GOING TO
Chicago Time., 9th Inst.
Whon tho Republican leaders aud parti
Bans generally, ccaso their hurrahing and
look soberly at their ticket, it difficult to
understand how they are goinir to vote it,
at least witli anything like complacency.
Tho head and tail are antagonistic. The
classes whom Garfield's nomination satis
fies muBt be intensely dissatisfied with
Arthur's, and those who are pleased with
Conkliug aud Arthur will find Uartield far
from palatable. Tho masse of voters who
do not, diHcrituiimte financially between he
head and the tail will find it laborious
enough to contemplate their presidential
uominues with feelings of enthusiasm.
No chnrgo of personal corruption is
on record against General Arthur.
It were better for the country and the
putty if Mr. Uartield were equally unas
sailable. But a Republican administra
tion officially held Geo. Arthur responsible
for tho malodorus administration of the
chief custom house in tho United States,
and dismissed hiin. Hutwcen the official
documents pertaining to the Investigation
resulting in that dismissal and tho official
record of Gen. Garfield, the averago Repub
lican voter will find much to embarrass him.
Should the Democracy nominate a ticket at
Cincinnati which the country can and will
elect, the Republican leaders will havo a
protracted contention over whether It was
the tail or their ticket that dragged tho
head down, or the head which ruined tho
fair. .. . ., : . , .
' ARTHUR. THE CUSTOM HOUSE
: ' ' ' Chicago Tribune, 9 h met. , '
We cannot but express the opinion that
the nomination of Mr. Arthur, ot New
York, was a mistake. It is neither in har
mony with tho platform nor the bead of
the ticket. There is the consolation, bdw
ever, that the office is one of total Insignifi
cance except in a remote contingency. The
excuse for such a nomination can only be
found in the fact that in the reaction fol
lowing tho glorious deliverance from
impending evil of tho most calami
tous character, the hearts of the
delegates, overflowing with gratitude,
yielded so far as to offer kindness to the de
feated and prostrated conspirators. Tho
nomination of vice-president followed so
soon after that of Gen. Garfield that there
was little time for reflection, and too many
of the delegates, in their sympathy for the
vanquished and in their hurry to go home,
did what they would not have done had
they taken a night to think over the matter.
Mr. Arthur is reputed to be personally a
gentleman of good character and fair
ability; but, unwilling to pass a hasty
judgment on what seems to have been an
ill-advised proceeding, we leave the sub
for discussion hereafter.
FOUR HUGS TO THE SQUARE.
From Atlanta (Ga.) Constitution.
The man who walks at night tecs funny
things, and sometimes, if he happens to be
a reporter, he tells the public about tbem.
On Wednesday night, between 10 aud 11
o'clock, while a factstater of the Constitu
tion was cleaving the dimness of Walton
street, his attention was attracted by a
youthful couple who were walking at tho
frightful speed of fifteen minutes to the
half square. Whilo the reporter was try
ing to think how long they could keep up
this pace without stopping, they stopped
within tbe friendly shadow of a huge bill
board, and the young man clasped the young
lady to his heaving bosom and kissed
her. Then he looked up and down the
street, as though expecting some one whom
he sincerely hoped would not come, and
then suddenly remembering that he had a
previous engagement, he turned and em
braced his companion in a long, loving and
businesslike manner and then he kissed
her. Some how he seemed to feel he had
not made a complete success, and he kissed
her again. Then, as if displeased with his
style of work, he repeated it in a sort of
Emma Abbott wav. This struck him as
being quite the thing, and he practiced it
several times. After a while he
stopped kissing the young lady and
hugged her. And just here ne ais-
played real genius. He was a master of
the art. He showed a perfect familiarity
with every possible style. Ha clasped her
gently, then be squeezed her rapturously
then he grabbed her violently then he
embraced "her slowly and impressively-
then he hugged her as if he had firmly re
solved never to go into any other business
as long as he lived, and then he thought be
heard somebody coming and they walked
off as if nothing had happened. They
turned into Broad street, and having
joined their friends, the shadows, near Wil
son's coal yard, they repeated the Walton
street performance without any material
change of programme. And then they
strolled leisurely into Luckey street;
between Forsyth and Broad, and when
they neared the First Baptist church the
idea occurred to the young man that they
would give a'farewell performance. Thev
did so. Both seemed deeply affected, and
the unseen audience was almost moved to
tears by the extremely touching sight. And
then those happy nocturnal closertomy
bosomcomes moved silently down Walton
street, and the unseen audience of one
slowly dispersed, strengthened in the con
viction that there is nothing like the power
of the press.
Somebody's Child. Somebody's child
is dying dying with the flush ot hope on
his young fuce and an indescribable yearn
ing to live and take an honored place in the
world beside the companions of his youth.
And somebody's mother is thinking of the
time when that dear face will be hidden
where no ray of hope can brighten it
when her heart and home will be left deso
latebecause there was no cure for con
sumption. Render, it the child bo your
neighbor's, take this comforting word to
the mother's heart before it is too late. Tell
her that consumption is curable, that men
aro living to-day, aged, robust men, whom
tho physicians pronounced incurable at the
age of" twenty-five, because one lung had
been almost destroyed by the disease. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is a most
efficient alterative for separating the scrofu
lous mntter from tho blood and lungs, and
imparting strength to tho system. It has
cured hundreds of consumptives.

She relates that on tho evening before it
occurred she noticed that Josephine was
unusually sad, and remarked it while driv
ing with her. The reason for it she learned
was that Napoleon had sent an officer to
the frontier to ' arrest the duke, and that
Josephine's entreaties that the duke's life
should be spared had been in vain. Bona
parte had answered, "Women must not in
terfere in such matters." On the following
day at dinner Bonnpartc remarked that
Mine, dc Rcmusut looked very pale, and
asked her why she had not put on rouje.
"There are two things,' he said, "which
are becoming to women ; rougo and tears."
Ho seemed in very good spirits, and
joked with his wife "with more freedom
than propriety." Next morning the news
reached Josephine that all was over with
tho duke. He had behaved with great
courage, and refused to have his eyes band

Gen. Hullen, who played the principle
part in the arrest and execution, was richly

ways distrusted him afterward, and once
said. "His presence disturbs me; I do not

execution. Napoleon was silent during
dinner, but when tho repast was over, he
said, as if answering himself "At any rate,
they know now what I am capable of, and
it is to bo hoped they will leave me alone,".
He spoke about various Jfrencn kings,
