All our cil ies are infested by gang of wild
boys, who u uke the evening ami tha Sunday

papers oct ionally relate their misdeeds, and
we see them for ourselves groutil upon their
favorite corners, ladies going around tbe
block trt avoid passing them. Nor cm we
claim tbo n-il-.l boy nuisance is peculiar to
greatcitins. In many ploasantoonntry towns,
and even in remote villages, there are boys
rou;h, l:iw:es, unfeeling, untaught who
have contri--el to escape the sedate civiliza
tion of the r native place. In their course
from babvl;ood they b;ivo learned little ex

yotiuf; i-i-n'i associations.
L?t i:s set- how this unhappy creature is
evolved. A uy ono may observe the process
who will Uiia the troulilo to study closely
0110 lai ju pnblicscliool of boys. Then? be sits,
listless and discontented, chewing gum, his
mouth olr-iady disfigured by the odions
habit, a center and source of disorder to his
quarter of the school room. Ho remains
languid and quiescent only so long as no
cli.tncc of irischief preseats itself; but when
it tlo.-s, lie sjows some cunning and prompt
ness in nvni ing blinsolf of it. It was not in
tlio s;-bool r xm, however, that ho ttocaino a
wild boy. He begins bis day's progress in
t'io bad way at homo, in his hurried, disor
derly broarfast, from which he goes to
school, hnl ' nourished, to devour whatever
indigestible substance be can find. And there
ho sits, wi h bis dirty hands and unclean
clothes, an incipient wild boy! If there are
a hundred loys in the schoolroom, there are
usually hall' a dazen of his kind. The school
room is preniled over by a young lady, in a
lovely whit) npron, her hair done to a nicety,
and she tri . -every hour to tame these few
young sava s by all the arts of persuasion
at ber comi ianL Slio is secretly afraid of
tho w-ld bo v , and ho knows it. She knows
and he kno-vs that if it comes to a fight it
will not lc :he teacher who will gain the vic
tory, and so they live in a condition of de
moralizing compromise. ' Tommy," she says.
In her sweetest note at the beginning of
school, "I sm you have brought that auger
to school aj aiii. Don't you think you had
better take it out iuto tho entry, or let me
put it into my desk?" - -
Tommy does not think so, and the gentle
lady knows well that, ir she were to proceed
from udvicn to command, and command to
compulsion, there would be a sceno in the
schoolroom, from which her soul recoils with
horror. SLe could expel him. Thelawgivcs
her this power. Why does she not uso it?
Because she is a gontle and good woman, and
knows this boy, and perhaps bis wit'iowed
mother also, and all that mother's vain efforts
to reform him, and she knows Cat expulsion
would sinip'y mean bis precipitation into the
career of o wild boy.
&iner 01 later, however, the school system
loses its hold upon him, and he develops
rapidly into a ruffian of the streets.
No ono ccn hold in unro grateful regard
than I do the patient, much enduring ladies
who form so important a portion of the
teaching force of this country. Tbo lenign
influence of good womon is needed in every
school, and iu no kind of school so much as
in a schocl of boys. When -the school is
large enoug h to have at its head a strcng,
able man, to whom in cases of difficulty tmd
rebellion tie ladies of tho corps can appeal,
all goes wo! L They seldom need to appeal.
Tho m"ro kuowlcdgo tha' tbo man is there,
with his strong arm and bis possiblo stick, is
usually a deterrent that sufjevs. But when
we placo it lady in charge of a school in
which ther 5 are boys heavier and stronger
than herself, and lea vo her thereto fight it
out with tl:em clone, day after day, with no
resource ncaiust persistent disorder, which is
a confession of defeat, we do something
which is extremely likely to result in the de
velopment if wild bovs.
It is su -prising how well many oi our
gentle and resolute ladies manage, unsup
ported as tliey uro by visible force. But out
of every fifty boys there are likely to be as
many as Are who will defy tho teachor, if
not totally conquer nnd frustrate her, to tho
extent of n aking ber life n daily renewal of
bitterness and shame. If we place a lady
over a lot cf lively and vigorous boys, we are
bound to supplement her. Wo must arrange
ic so that, t.t any moment of need, she can
summon by telephono or otherwise a super
intendent, u selectman, a trustee, with n stout
policeman .iccompanying him, well provided
with tho means of subduing the rebel. He is
always a coward. Let him but know that
his gentle veaclier has this resource and it
will usually keep hnu in order.
As a two', le, I fear we are a little too soft
and sentimental about childhood. We might
advantagoi msly caress it a little less and
study it riuch more. Children, like other
musical instruments, give forth music only
when they are played upon by a skillful hand.
I often think of a school as resembling a great
organ fuL of pipes, trumpets and flutes.
When a m ister touches the keys and works
the pedals, the mighty instrument Gils all the
region win harmony. It is wofully other
wise when an unskillful or insufficient player
fills the onanist's seat
A well governed child, that is, a child that
has learned reasonable obedience without loss
of natural vivacity, is the most enchanting
object in t he universe. It graces and cheers
every home of which it is a part. Every eye
rests upon it with pleasure and benediction.
But alas! an ungoverned or misgoverned
chil l can easily become something hideous
and terrifl x No crentui-e cau be more crueL
In my life 1 have known two or tjree in
stances of cruelty to children from parents
and teachers, but it seems to me I have
known a liundred cases of the roost savage
cruelty co umitted by children upon parents,
teachers t ud ono another. They ore cruel
because tbey are young. A proper considera
tion for the rights and feelings bf others is
not naturiJly a trait of childhood; it belongs
to maturity. It comes with knowledge of
life and e perience of suffering. Hence the
necessity of children being instructed in ele
mentary morals, and of their being com
pelled, if necessary, by the strong hand, to
respect ot jer people's rights.
In truth, stable virtue in all its forms be
longs to maturity, while vice is a thing
green, rav, mindless, stupid, immature. In
our school -i and colleges it is the crude, pro
vincial minds that give trouble, and when we
visit one f our prisons, we find that three
fourths -of the criminals there are little mare
than wild boys in a cage. James I'arton in

A HELP TO PHYSICIANS.
The Phonograph Shown to Be of Servtee
In Making; Dhftg-ooala.
Although some ten years bave elapsed
since Mr. Thomas A. Edison startled the
world by inventing a machine that stored
up sound and reproduced it at will, it is
only within the past few months that this
wonderful invention has been Drought to
such degree of perfection as makes it of prac
tical utility to the public at large. Some
time has passed since I began to investigate
the practicability of this machine, so as to
give to the medical world a better and more
certain means of teaching, recording, repro
ducing and demonstrating tbe physical signs
or sounds of the normal as well as of the dis
eased condition of the heart and lungs. .
At this early stage of my experiments I
must say that I predict a great future for it,
and the opening of a new field for investiga
tion in physical diagnosis and teaching.
It is a very extraordinary fact that, while
the deepest tone that our ears are capable of
recognizing is one containing sixteen vibra
tions a second, the phonograph will record
teu vibrations or less, and can then raise the
pitch until we bear a reproduction from them.
Similarly, vibrations above the highest rate
audible to the ear oan be recorded on tbe
phonograph and tiien reproduced by lower
ing tho pitch until we actually hear the record
of those inuudible pulsations.
Prom what observations I have already
practically made, 1 am satisfied that ths
phonograph has a great future, and has
opened up an entire new field of iuvstiga
tion in that lino.
The method which I adopted in making
these experimental physical examinationj by
the phonograph was carried out in tiie fol
The phonograph was placed on a suitable
table before me; a tube in the shape of tho
deaf conversation tube was then attached to
the recording cylinder of the phonograph;
the other end was placed on that part of the
chest which was to be explored; then the
phonograph was sot in motion before placing
the tube in contact with the chest. In order
to register or record upon the wax cylinder
that part of the chest which was intended to
be examined, it was found necessary, either
before or directly after examining any part,
to register by its anatomical name that part
of tho chest This was done by speaking into
the phonograph so as to be able, in reproduc
ing, to distinguish those physical sounds
found in one part from the other.
Tor example, if I intend to examine the
supraclavicular region I speak into the pho
nograph while in motion, before placing the
tube on the chest, "Supraclavicular region."
Py so doing these words were directly regis
tered. I now place the tube on that part of
tbe chest and examine slowly and thoroughly.
In this way I continued to explore the entire
heart and lungs. It will be found advan
tageous to allow the cylinder to make a num
ber of revolutions before romoviug the tube
to another part, in order that more than one
respiratory heart sound might be registered.
This is also to be carried out on examining
the heart Sounds.
When I was finished with my examination
I returnea i-u- the reproducer, so as to re
peat that which r-ktA.ui j; .i,
examination. The phonograpti k-.-.-. .now set
in motion; a direct attached stethoscope
applied to mv ears from the nhonmmuih a n
the sounds were beard, in their varied pitch
ana tone as tney came along, with perfect
clearness. The words and sentences that I
had spoken into it, for the purpose of record
ing the landmarks, were all reproduced.
With some extra experimenting 1 was able
to apply the use of the phonograph in such a
manner as to throw the physical sounds,
which had been Dreviouslv racriaroroH nnnn
ono of these wax cylinders, into the auditori
um, ana thereby teach directly a larger class.
It is further noasihla himnctnift nhmim.i

representing the different diseases" of the
lungs and heart. When one wishes to study
an v of the sounds of the heart or limn ho
can pick out of his cabinet that cylinder

to her, and ignore her charms and her pres-
cucu. rur, progressive as is Japan, young
men and women are never allowed together
alone, and such a thing as a flirtation or co
quetry is unknown. Unlike China or Corea,
Japan allows parents to invite a young gen
tleman to their house as guest, but he de
votes his time to tbe parents; the daughter
may play the koto, or entertain him in other
ways, but she is noticed no more than is a

It seems strange to us that custom can so
control feelings and sentiment, especially
when every day we see here at home young
men doinj the exact opposite, ignoring pa
rents and older members of the family, and
feigning more interest in the young women
than they really feel. Marriage in Japan
are carried on much as tbey used to be, tbe
parent making the choice; but nowadays if
it chance that either young lady or gentle
man object to become husband or wife, the
parents do not force tbe matter, and, as a
rule, babies are not betrothed by their pa
rents as they are in some other Asiatic coun
tries. Neither are women so secluded as
they are in those countries, for nearly as
many Japanese women are to be seen on the
streets in Japan as are American women in
this country. In fact, tbe Japanese woman
or girl is to Asia what the American girl is
to Europe. American Magazine.
Travelers in Java have filled pages and
columns with rhapsodies over the mango
steen , and all unite in extolling it as the su
preme delight of the tropics. The mango
steon appears to one as a hard round fruit
the size of a peach. Its hard outer shell or
rind is of the same color and thickness as a
green walnut, but in this brown husk lie six
or eight segments of creamy white pulp.
The little segments are easily separated, and
transferred to the mouth melt away, the
pulp being as soft and fine as a custard.
The mangosteen's delicate pulp tastes, as all
its eulogists say, like strawberries, peaches,
bananas and oranges all at oace; a slight
tartness is veiled in these delicious flavors,
and it is never cloyingly sweet. Token just
as it comes from the ico box the mangosteen
is an epicure's dream realized, and the mere's
the pity that it only grows in far away
places and deadly climates, and does not
bear transportation. Largo sums have been
offered, and P. and O. steamships have mads
hundreds of ineffectual efforts to get a bas
ket of mangosteens to England for the queen.
The hard rind looks unchanged for weeks,
but the delicate pulp melts away, and the
dry est and coldest refrigerator chambers
cannot keep tho heart of the mangosteen
