playing on the gate liofnre his fathers 1
house, saw two men meet ou the side-
walk and heard one of them cry. "Lin

This Is the earliest recollection of '
Woodrow Wilson Something in the
shrill tone of P'e speaker struck for
the first time a chord of lasting mem- ,
Yet Woodrow Wilson remembers lit
tle, almost nothing, of the war Au- :
Custa was on an sla id inound which
flowed the current ot the cnn'ltct. It ;
was never occupied by I ederal troops i
iiutil reconstruction days. No refu

member that the twiy saw a troop of
men in every sort of garb mounted on
every sort of horse ride past the house
one day on their way to join Ihe Con

cried after them in a slang exIaiuu
tion of the day. '; get your mule:" '
He does remember the scan it y ot
the food supply that came on as Hie
war progressed -not that there was
not enough food, but it was greatly
restricted in variety
There was another war event that,
made its impression upon the boy in
the sitmuier of 1m;."i he saw Jefferson
Imvls ride by uudi r guard on his way
to Fortress Monroe .

occupied temporarily by peilcral sol- j
diers However, sin Ii hardships as the
city ot Augusta suffered tl.tough the
war were nothing compared with tli..-
endured in most parts ,,t tin- south It
Is lo this fact that is to be attributed
the small part in Woodrow Wilson's
education played by the passions f
the great conflict. He was only nine
years old when the war ended He
was. too. apparently a bey who some
what tardiiv developed strong convic
tions. In short, he was a real boy
while he was a hoy. more concerned
in the games of his crowd than in the
principles of a war of which they saw
The Wilson boy was. his companions
say. au active litt'e fellow. It was a
peculiarity that he was always run
ning. He seemed incapable of proceed
lng from point to point othwwise. He
can scarcely be said to have walked
until he was fourteen or fif'teeu years
One of the thrilling moments of the
boy's early life was the day and even
lng when the first street car came
down the streets of Augusta The
cars were of the bobtail variety with
a hoi for nickels up in front Ky r.icfct
the electric light had not then turned
nisht into day the glimmering red,
purple and green lights carried by the
cars afforded endless pleasure as they
approached and receded The boys, j
too. made friends with he drivers and !
weDt along with them on their trins,
being allowed sometimes to work tha j
brakes and to turn the switches.
A little Inter 'J oin learned the delight j

a marksman was tier cousin that she
was hit by tin arrow and came tum
bling to the ground at his feet. The
terrified little hunter carried her limp
body into the house with a conscience

house, at the entrance to the arsenal

was a gn.it blow to the couple, and

Parents, teachers and the public in general should
unite in the eliort to break up this DANGEROUS
PRACTICE before the maimed and bleeding little
form fills a cot in the Hospital. Passengers of proper
feeling should try to make the boy FEEL ASHAMED
of his act instead of encouraging him to hide and
evade the Conductor.
If parent and teacher educate their charges to look
upon stealing a ride as bad form, dishonest, and a
trick to be ashamed of, a sentiment will grow up in
the minds of the youngsters that will lead them to
avoid the practice.

Wilson was a quiet, studious boy. :nd
he speaks with the gnatest delight of
the Augusta days.
Hut young Wilson's real instructor j
during the Augusta days was his fa j
ther. Long before the age at which i
boys are imbibing knowledge from
boots he was already receiving from ;
the lips of his father an education !
more varied, more practical and sound .
than any that could otiierwise have!
come to him. i
Father and son were constant com- ;
panions. but it was Sunday nf.ernoons ;
that the elder devoted particularly to
his son's training. Then, sitting on
the floor, or, rather, reclit;l:.g there
against an inverted chair, the gifted
parson poured out into the ears of the
spellbound lad nil the stores of his ex
perience, learning and thought. lie
wis a man or wiae inrurmation o:i nie
affairs of the world, a Judge of gc i l
literature, a master of the qucn .f
the sciences, theology, and withal n
man of much Imaginative power.
Above all. the elder Wilson had a
clean working mind. He had a way
of recognizing facts, and the proies-irs
of his thought dealt with them In the
light of reason. If the U- h:.d learn
ed nothing else he would have fe-en
fcnppy Indeed to have been guide. I
from the beginning int the wa;s of
clear, cold thinking.
And Pr. Wilson was a master of the
English language. lie believed that
nobody had a thought until he coui 1
put It quickly and definitely ii:to
words. This he did himself, and thi.-
he taught his son to do.
On Mondays the father would almost
without exception take his son out
with him on some excursion ln the city
or neighboring country. On a Monday
the two would visit the machine shops
Tom would be shown furnaces, boilers,
machinery, taught to follow tb'; release
of power from the coal to the comple
tion of its work in a finished product
of steel or of cotton. lie remembers to
this day the impression made upon him
then by the gigantic engines, the roar
of furriaces or the darting up of sheets
of flame. He remember great farites
presided over by sooty faced Imps. In
this fashion by a continual round of
visits of inspection In which the sight
of visible things and visible processes
was the text of running lectures ou the
principles of nature, chemistry, physics
and of tbe organization of human soci
ety the boy learned what he would
have had great dithVulty in learning
from books alone.
