A HOLD BVRQLARY.
Mr. A. Hayden who lives on North
Fifth street, went to sleep last night as
usual, and the entire family of seven
persons slept undisturbed until about
four o'clock this morning, when Mr.
Hayden was awakened by some un
usual noise and the barking ot the
house dog. He got up and looked
around, but saw nothing unusual, and
after looking at his watch, which lay
on the bureau, and which noted four
o'clock, went to bed and to sleep
again. He arose at his usual hour
about half-past five and having put
on his pants, felt as a man naturally
does who has money, of his hip pocket,
where his pocketbook was, to find it
gone. A burglar had evidently been
in the house, and such was found to
be the case. He had enteied by a
dining-room window and retreated the
same way. The pocketbook was
gone and on the floor lay a blank
check payable to bearer, which had
been in it. The watch lay on the bu
reau undisturbed, and in the upper
drawer of the bureau was a bag of
silver untouched, which seemed to in
dicate that the bold, bad man who
had been in the room had been dis
turbed before he had completed his
search tor money and other portable
properly. Entering the dining-room,
Mr. Hayden found his Sunday coat in
the window and the window closed
down on it, as if the burglar had in
tended to take that. Under the
dining-room window Mr. Hayden, by
the iip,ht of a lantern, found his empty
purse 'and several papeis which had
been in it. The pocketbook con
tained some forty dollars in paper
money, and Mr. Hayden is that much
poorer aud the burglar that much

Tiiero aro comparatively few weekly
papers in the country that pay for poetry.
One can almost count Uicm on ono's iin-
gcrs. T heso papers require that contri
utions shall reach a certain btnndunl of
excellence, and oven then tlio poems
must bo "timely." It in singular that
papers that pay nothing at all get very
excellent work. I have known poems
rejected by tho,"pay" journals to dato
an nlmost world wiuo reputation fiom
their publication in tho gratuitous col
umn. Tlio leading magazines pay good prices
for poetry, but much that they publish is
far inferior, as poetry, to that which ap
pears in tho weekly iucsj at Bcantier
rates. Tlio most valued contributor col
tlom gets moro than thrco poems a year
into tlio magazines, and thete, paid for,
say, at tho rate of 850 each, which is a
good price, do not provo a bonanza.
Writers of newspaper poetry fall into
ruts, which, seemingly, unfit them for
better work. Ono sees but seldom in tho

The eccentricities of tlio medical pro

American curgcon in his travels through
Europo noticed that tho peasants when
hurt by splinters, thorns or other dan
gerous substances would got their
wounds licked by their dogs, and that
they wcro speedily healed. Acting on
tills observation ho carefully examined
tho tonguo of tho animals, and recog
nized tho presence of a healing power of
high degree. So convinced wus hoof
tho truth of his theories that ho has
opened a canino hospital near Zurich in
Switzerland, whero dogs of various
breeds aro utilized in licking tho wounds
and nervous centers of tho patients,
under vigilant medical control. Already
wonderful cures havo been reported, and

THE DEST EDUCATION.
That V1ilrh Trains Hand nnd nraln -'To-gethcr
A Great Mistake.
Each year brings to tho general public,
as well as to tho educators, tho convic
tion that tho present system of education
is Inadcquato to tho demands of tho day.
Tho great public, which is moro directly
interested in school methods than tho ed
ucators themselves, nro waking to tho
conviction that thcro is much useless ex
penditure of tlmonnd effort in putting
tlio boy and girl through tho courso of
study in tho schools. This conviction is
not limited to any class of intelligence.
It is permeating all classes. With this
rcoro complete view of education comes
antong tho higher classes n greater re
spect for skilled labor. In theso days
when riches suddenly tako to themselves
wings and lly away; when thero may bo
luxury ono week and penury tho noxt,
it is necessary for ovcry ono to bo pro
pared for theso emergencies. Tlio exi
gencies in business lifo cannot always be
foretold with accuracy. Tlio laws that
govern tho evolutions of commcrco aro
to a certain extent tho samo in their ten
dency and as unerring in their effect as
thosothat govern tho ovolutions of na
It has long been n great mistake of tho
rich to educate their children in tho ef
llorcscnccs of knowledge, and to teach
them to view manual labor ns lowering
in its tntlucnccs. But r.clf preservation
is ono of tho first laws of naturo aud
thcro aro comparatively few peoplo who
would rather starvo to death than work
with their hands. Tho instinct of na
turo is strong with us all, and thcro is
that consciousness in ovcry one, at least
in nearly ovcry ono, that forces him to
labor in order to savo his own life. Tho
complications of social conditions and tho
consequent comiictltion in all depart
ments of industrial und professional life,
together with theso sudden disappear
ances of fortunes, aro impressing upon
tho minds of all. tho rich ns well aa tho
poor, tho necessity of being forearmed.
Tlio man who is armed is always ready
for an attack. Tho man who lias rt
skilled brain nnd hand to fall back upon
is ready for an emergency.
If boclcty is to bo compactly built and
enduring wo must nil contrlbuto our
labor, not only to mako it so, but to
keep it so. Wo havo now as much of tho
disintegrating elements us wo need. Tlicbo
aro tho criminal classes, tho pauicrs, tho
insane, the bed ridden, tho homelesj, tho
aged, tho infirm. Wo havo in this wido
domain many that arc needy, but that tit o
not yet tho wards of tho public. With
tho uicrcaso of tlio population comes nn
incrcuso in society's burdens. Tlio com
plication in social conditions must bo evi
dent to every ono that will tnko the trott
bio to penctrato tho slight crust which
envelops lifo in tho United States. Tlio
only way to put nn obstaclo in tlio way
of this alarming increnso in our non-producing
class, or non-contributing classes,
is to cducatoour children to become pro
ducers nnd contributors. Tlio present
system of education is good do far as it
goes, but it docs not go far enough.
If all members of society wore produ
cers as well as consumers thcro would bo

education might, and undoubtedly would,
