Short Talks With the Boys.
An Ohio farmer wrote the othor day,
asking: "Why don't you write some
thing for country boys." What hag
boon written has applied to all bovs in
a general way. but in this articlo 1 will
hit the country boys In particular.
To bo a farmer's son fs, too often, to
bo a drudge. The farmer himsolf is
one, and he cannot spare bis son. In
some cases this must necessarily bo so,
but there are many exceptions. To bo
a farmer means to be out of bod at
daylight and hard work until sundown.
It means, in the majority of cases,
plain clothes, plain faro and few privi
leges. Tho farmer himself may not
care for the concert and circus and ex
cursion, and in his selfishness be re
fuses his boys such privileges. After
his back-breaking work of the day ho
may not care to sit down with a news
paper or book, but that is no reason
why he shouldn't have those things in
the house for his boys and girls. I
know plenty of farmers with cash in
bank who are too stingy to take any
thing beyond a local weekly newspaper.
They make an old buggy do. Ihey
have no pride about their horses and
harnesses. They buy slop clothes
for their boys, pinch 'em down to the
last cent, and then wonder that they
don't want to attend some fashionable
town church on Sunday.
The old-fashioned farmer came about
as near being a two-legged hog as is
possible to get. Because he liked fat
pork the vear 'round his family must
eat It. Hocause he could get along
with a $7 suit of clothes every one else
must come to it. Because the almanac
furnished him plenty of reading his
family bad no business to want news-
tapers and magazines. He wanted
lis sons to feel as bz as "t.hem 'ere
Barker boys," and yet he refused them
everything which has made the Barker
boys their superiors.
If you will consult tho criminal rec
ords of cities and villages you will find
that farmers' sons are pretty disorderly
characters. They bring to town with
them a spirit of recklessness that calls
lor a row. Why? I can tell you, be
cause I have asked at least fifty of
them. Bring a boy up without any
privileges and you make him hate half
the world. When he becomes a young
wan and feels his lack of education
and polish he will hate the other half,
lie comes to town feeling that he has
no show and is a nobody, and this
breeds a spirit of defiance. Ho has
just as much right in the world as tho
lawyer's son. Ho has just as much
brains, and in his young days was the
best looking. Tho lawyer's son has
been schooled and his mind expanded,
while the farmer's son has been toiling
and drudging. Cultivation, education
and associations have made the law
yer's son a tine-looking young man.
Snow, wind, rain, hard work and bit
terness of spirit have so changed the
looks of the farmer's son that he is
ashamed of himself.
I am not going to advise farmers in
the case, but I'll tell you what I'd do
if I was a farmer and had a boy about
15 years of age whom I wanted to fol
low tho same pursuit I'd have kept
him in school up to this time, and he d
bo fairly posted in geography, gram
mar, mathematics, orthography and
chirography. I should bavo sent him
to school in town in' order that he
might have the ronga corners - sand
papered down by contact with society.
If he had any musical talent I d en
courage it. I'd allow him so much
money per week, and advise with him
until he could spend it intelligently.
I'd get him good clothes and encourage
him to be neat and tasteful in dress.
I could not have dono this had I been
pin-poor, but eight out of ten of our
farmers could do even better. When
my boy came home he would find at
least one good daily paper in the house,
, backed by a lUerary weekly, an agri
cultural journal, a magazine and a
scientific publication. The farm
Bhould be mapped, every lield num
bered, and we d open a book account
to show how many dollars and day's
work were expended for certain re
turns. My boy should be my business
partaer. We'd read together, discuss
and plan together, and while I endeav
ored to make him reel ins rcsponsiou
ity, I should do nothing to mako him
lose his independence.
"Such ideas read well, but you'd run
your farm into the hands of the slierifJ
within three years.
See here, my fanner friend, let me
give you a few facts. J he average
farmer shortens the services oi his lum
ber wajron one year by leaving it out
in the sun and the dew. His plow
would last one year longer if kept
painted and sheltered. For the want
of a little attention his harness wears
out onlv half its days. His barns and
sheds zo to rack for tho want of paint,
Where the hoof-rot could bo stopped in
the first sheep if he were posted, he
stops it in tho thirtieth. The farmer
wliii (rttii Ilia nrrrinnltiirnl hints from
the atmanac loses his hogs by the chol-
' era, his fowls by the pip, and his horses
slobber from his gate to the village
store and back. Lot a man run your
farm on business principles and the
fence corners would not take up four
acres out of every forty: there would
bo no old box-drains about the house to
brine tvDhoid fever and doctor's bills.
Those leaks in the roof of tho barn
would not spoil three or four tons of
bay next year; the want of an cave
trough on tho house would not cave in
tho cellar walls; the first sign of dis
ease amonar the live stock would bo
promptly treated; tools and imple
ments of every sort should be carefully
Well, I am goiug to shock you. I'd
have the harness oiled and buggiosand
- wagons washed oneo a week. I'd have
a lawn about the honse, and make a
display of flowers and shrubs; I'd give
a party now aud then, and I'd encour-
ago meotiugs oi larmcrs once or twice
n month, not to kick about railroad
freights or jaw politics, but to post
each other on farm work and the best
way to manage it.
But about the bov? Intelligence aud
" energy rightly applied to farm labor
would eive every farmer's boy a holi
day in evorv week of the year. Let
him go fishing or hunting, or swim'
mine; or ridinir. Let him go to town

clothes, cheap fare and poor lodgings.
Surprise him still more by asking his
opiuioir now and then, and by giving
him a chanco to prove bis theories.
Our best and brightest public men
were tho sons of farmers, but in too
many eases they either ran away or
were driven from home. Had they re
mained tlmy would have never boon

The i;nct of I'ifihlng on the Con
"It's a bass," whispered tho guide,
hoarsely, "a six-pounder, as a great
black form broke water near at hand,
certainly the king of the tribe and
worthy tho best human skill, now turn-
ng on Its side, making violent and sud
den rushes to the right, darting direct
ly at tho boat. Now tho lino is slack;
ho Is gone. No! Tho silk conies taut
with a jerk, the water Hies, tho rod
bends under tho strain and tho whiz
zing of the reel tells us that tho noble
animal is still there. His maneuvrcs
have never been and never will bo des
cribed. After a battle of nearly twenty
minutes the gamy creature was reeled
sufficiently near and the net landed
him in tho boat a brown-hued, great
eyed beauty, that, though not weighing
six pounds, was five and a quarter, tho
largest of this season, and, if we are
not mistaken, not exceeded in 1883
near Alexandria Bay.
"i here 8 a heap of men that would
pay twenty dollars to have caught that
chap," said the guide, as tho bass was
packed away in moss as, of course, it
would have to go to New York, "io
see, folks that's got this tishin' fever
on 'cm they'll do anything, and as
sure as vou re a-born there s some
thing about fish that tangles up a man's
conscience dredful. Jest to give you
an ideo how folks'll do, about five years
ago there was a heap of Ixxnissin in
the fishin', leastwise fishin' with nets,
but now it s agin the law. le see
these ere anglin' associations has got
down on 'em and stopped it, but Lord
bless vo, 1 ve seen over eighty tons of
fish took out of this ore blessed river in
a single season. There was one old chap
named Frisbie that lied a hut over on
Grenadier, on the Canada side, and he
was thought considerable of a fisher.
It got around that whoever went out
with him alius got a pile of fish, and so
they did, that's certain. But how d'ye
supposo they did it? Well, this olo
cuss would take 'em to some placo
where they would'nt have no luck, and
when they got back to his place he'd
sav: 'Well, gentlemen, we ve had poor
luck, sartin; the wind ain't just what
it orter be. But it ain't agoin' ter do
for you ter go back to the ladies with
no fish. I've got a few I'll sell ye
cheap.' So ont be pulls his seine
caught bass, and of course the folks
would buy 'em and not say anything
about it. But at last one of these 'ere
anglin' association chaps got wind of
it and they went for him and broke
him all up, so't he's fishin on tho

, , A G&ntcnialan Village.
The bulk' of Central America is yet
unsorveyed, and as the Spanish have
never developed the faculty of location
to a great extent, and are absolutely
incapable of judging of distances, an
explorer is dependent upon his own
resources for data to define his position
from day to day.
The village of Chahal numbers bat
six years. It had its origin in a desire
of somo of the inhabitants of Cajabon
and San Pedro in the department of
Vera Paz to escape from labor upon
the coffee estates; so they fled to the
wilds upon tho northern foothills of tho
Santa Cruz mountains and made homes
for themselves and their children. The
Santa Cruz range of mountains bor
ders the lake of Yzabal upon the north.
In a direct lino the village is about
thirty-five miles a little south of west
from" the mouth of the river Sarstoun.
and nearly fifty miles duo west from
Tho town is built on six spurs of
hills, all pointing toward "a low green
valley," and the houses are scattered,
with a delightful want of uniformity.
They are thatched cottages, with stock
ado sides and ends; windows would be
useless, and therefore they have none;
doors they have, but they are unhung
some of them in sections and some en
tire: to open them they are taken away
entirely. Their floors are the trodden
face of good mother earth, and chairs
ditto. Yet tho village and surround
ing valley have a population of at least
fifteen hundred. The men of Cajabon
are easily distinguished from those
who come from San Pedro, for their
nether garments are such as were
worn by our grandfathers, ending at
or above the knee, but those from San
Pedro wear pantaloons to the ankles.
The women ordinarily wear tho sin
gle robe common to tho race far and
near; that is two or three yards of
home-mado cotton cloth wound about
tho waist, with tho end tucked in to
hold it in place. Their dressmaking is
not expensive after tho cloth is woven.
For extra occasions they uso a square
piece of cloth with a hole cut out of
the center to put tho head through;
this wholo is embroidered with colored
yarns, so that when it is on it extends
tho effect of the colored beads, which
aro almost universally worn on tho
neck. The men use a square blanket
of home-made cotton, out theirs is
only thrown over their shoulders; somo
uso short jackets neatly bound and
embroidered. The people are more
than ordinary in their looks; they are
muscular and healthy, evidently not
working more than enough to keep

The following is the last letter writ
ten by Lieutenant Lockwood before tho
return of the ship which landed him at
Lady Franklin bay. It is to an army
friend at Fort Leavenworth where he
was once stationed:
Lady Franklin Bay, Grinnell Land,
Aug. 17. 1881. My Dear Boy: I wrote
you before leaving on the present ex
pedition. Now that we have arrived
at our destination, I suppose that a few
lines regarding this distant abode will
be acceptable. No doubt Lieutenant
Greely's account or some newspaper
report of our trip will reach you. We
have had a wonderful run north. Now
that wo are hero and see the ice, we
discuss a good deal as to whether the
thing can be repeated, and even if the
ship can return without spending a
winter in the ice. I saw a good deal
of Greenland, tho Esquimaux and the
few Danes in the country. The man
ners and customs of the natives are
very interesting and show how people,
as well as the animal world, suit them
solves to every condition of climate.
Tho mountain glaciers, icebergs, and
all the wonderful characteristics of the
Arctic regions you have read about, of
course. Coming up tho straits we
killed somo seal and a polar bear. 1
had a hand In tho latter, and killed ono
of the former, and on our arrival here,
on tho 11th, Mr. Clay, ono of the men,
and myself, killed a whole herd of musE
oxen thirteen in all. We have been
very busy sinco our arrival in getting
the ship unloaded, working night and
day for this purpose. The young ice
forms every night now and gets thicker
and thicker. Yesterday we had a little
snow. The shore is lined with barrels,
kegs, boxes, bales, and packages innu
merable, and our house is progressing
rapidly. We havo got about ono hun
dred tons of coal on shore, by dint of
hard work in boating it ashore1 and af
terwards wheeling it up th bank in
barrows. Wo expect to land about for
ty more. We should bo entirely hide-
1)endent of coal had wo reached Cape
yiurchison. We were prevented from
doing so by tho ice. I have been over
there, about six miles from here, and
found tho excellent coal mine spoken
of by tho last British expedition. Our
location is very good indeed. It is well
sheltered, and the surrounding country
is quite prepossessing for the Arctic re
gions. I expoct we shall be quite com
Fortable, and if wo stand tho 130 days
of darkness wo will come out of it very
well. I look forward with more con
cern than anything elso to thoso ex
ploring expeditions, as that is a mode
of life I have not had the slightest ex
perience in. A lottor in these regions
is the most acceptable thing one can
get Sincerely your friend,
J. B. Lockwood.
