A WORD FOR OUR BOYS.
WHY THEY LEAVE HOME SO SOON
AND DESPISE FARMING.
In the Mail Chase to tict the Seed Into
the Ground and t le Grain Harvested the
Little Fellows Are Worked Almost to
Denth A Mother's Story.
I would like to say a word iu favor of our
f armor boys, who, a.i a class, are sadly over
worked in tho rush of spring work or through
the hot days of harv Gt.
A great mauy farmers uDdertako so much
that, iu order to get tho crops in in season,
everything must coma to time, whilo the
boys, colts and even-thins else on the place is
pressed into service i or all they are able to do.
Xow, if tho boys taro to work so hard, it
seems to me they shield be allowed a shorter
duy, and not be compelled to go from sun up
to sun down, as well as t uo older ones. They
are really to bo pitu d, if ono stops to think of
it, for if unythiug in wanted while getting
ready to go to the li. Id, it is, "Here Tom, run
and get it, and step livoly," aud as soon as
thut iarticular thing is brought, then some
thing: else is wanted, ami when ready to goto
work Tom has run eaiough to be already tired ;
then, "Now seo Unit you keep t hose horses go
ing" as a bit of part ng advice.
Then, after a louj day'n plowing, there
are tho cows to lie b .-ought from tho pasture.
Uf coi:rsi, Tom beiiig tho youngest, has that
to tlo, too. And ufu-r supper is over he must
milk, nil of which ii well enough if ho was
only allowed a s!io -tor lay than the others,
anil very frequently whilo the others stop
during t:io d;iy for rest Tom must go for a
;ug of water, as "toys don't get tired." I
ielievo in their working as they ore able, but
liu vo kii n so man boys injured from over
work that I cannot refrain from saving a
few wonts in tho hope that they may do a
litllogiHxl. Ourde ir, warm hearted, willing
boys, whoso work wo can only appreciate
when thoy are ill or aiisent; theu we soe how
much help they hava Ikx.'0.
"TUB I'UlWS WEBK AIX BROKE. n
I was well acquainted with one boy, who
helpeil break up aL toe ground for a large
crop. Ho was only 14 and small of his aire.
and he worked right along wiih his father, a
very strong man, until tho crops were in, and
tho day they finish-tl planting corn, at sup

"Vny, George, wbat is the matter?" For

dejected, drooping little figure as ho stood in
the door. "Oh, no hiug, only tired "with a
pathetic little smilo In a day or two he was
taken down with fe .-er, and for weeks lay at
death's door simp!y from overwork. The
first week of his illness ho raved continually
about his work, an 1 it was enough to break
one's heart to hear him urging his team to
their work, or his plow would break, or it
was "so hard to throw tho dirt up hill." He
kept this up for fe week, never a minute's
rest night or day, and every day his voice
grew weaker, until one day he opened his
eyes, and looking a -ouml the room said, "the
plows are all brok and never mentioned
them again. But tor weeks he was not out

transaction. A long illness to be borne,

anxiety such an liliiess caused his. parents.
As he was slowly recovering, his physician
said: "This illnesf was caused more from
overwork than anything else; now, see that
it is never done ago in. "
Another case of bov's overwork, which I
know to lie true, w:is where a man set a boy
of 11 years of age to plowing, and the only
way he could turn the plough was to put his
head under tho cross pieces, between the
handles, lotting it rest on tho back of his
neck, until be injur.! hi:, spine and was taken
sick and lived only n few Uavs. In the in

for the hoys; hard, tml ixl, for strong men.
MAKES A MOtnr.K's HEART ACHE.
Last summer our otv:i boy, a stout young
fellow of lr, who had worked from early
spring with scarcely a day's intermission, or
without a word cf com .l.tiut, side by side
with another man jiueh older than himself.
then through four ar five weeks of harvest
until a day or two before it was over, came
into my room (I v as ill at the time) looking
so sad and worn thst It frightened me, and 1
said to him: "Woi t is tho matter, dear, dont
you feel well?" ' Oh, ma," ho said, "I am
just nearly dead, my head aches so, just look
at my hands," holcing up Lis bands, perfectly
covered tnsiilo wi h callouses and blisters.
whilo his lips quivered and tears stood in his
dark eyes, something that I had not seen for
years, for ho is usuillv too proud tocomplain.
"Yesterday my nor bled until I could hardly

went to my mother heurt to have to tell him
that father said "no, mast try and get

His father did net moan to bo hard, for if
he had been sunstrnck or stricken down with

Exemptions to t! e rule of mariages do con

not inevitably lend to social stoppage and
disaster, it is necessary to perceive that the

us does not necesss riiy result badly for people
who are so vory different from us as the
French are. And this is an extremely ddl
cult matter; it is always difficult to realize
tout maxims whic h we have conquered for
ourselves have not a universal validity. The
conception of ma: -lag do convenance by no
means excludes the idea of love. Neither
does the practice. No young girl in France
looks forward to n 3t loving her husband. Bhe
simply expects to learn to love him after
marriage as our yo ong girls aro expected to do

"Modern conveniences,'' in case of accident.
often cause more trouble than the want of
thorn. Here is a ludicrous example that
illustrates it or at least it shows that people
who wade in rubber pantaloons must keep
right sido up. The Harrisburg (Pa. ) Telegraph
tells the story at the expense of a well known
minister who is very fond of trout fishing:
A friend made him a present of rubber
trousers, attached to which were heavy boots,
the wholo arrangomect forming one piece.
He waded in the streams and fished, and
guyed tho other fishermen who didn't own
gum trousers, and had lots of sport.
At night, when they came in tired and
hungry, tho dominio would Ikj r.ieo and dry,
while tho other fellows would bo more or less
wet, according to tboir mishaps, and, of
course, would be chatTod by the minister.
One morning they were all standing on the
bank, watching him wading in deep water,
and envying him, when all of a sudden he
stepped on a slippery stone, his fuot went up,
and bo wont iu over head.
They fished him out, aud found he weighed
about a ton, the water having filled up his
boots and trousers to tho waist. Tho funny
part of it was that they couldn't pull off the
combined boots and trousers, and so they had
to stand him on his head against a trea until
tho water all ran out.
It was a very undignified aud uncomfor
table position for a minister, made more so by
tho lioys, who stood around and descanted ou
the groat convenience gum trousers were to a
man who wont fishing. But bo still tishes, and

A Mother in the Tlay.
Some o.ieer mistakes happen to actresses,
due to the many roles they enact Uou the
rta;to. llecently Miss Kathryn Kidder, who
is playing tho part of mother to Little Ijord
Pauntloroy at the Broadway theatre, at
tended a reception. The hostess introduced
tier to a lady, with this remark: "She is the
mother of Little Ird Fauntleroy." Some
how the lady interpreted the remark litor
slly and begnn to question Miss Kidder about
the age of her little son and wbuu she per
mitted him to goon the stage. It was an
embarrassing moment, when the young ac
tress explained that sho was only the
mother in the play and not in real
life. Miss Kidder is young and has a rich
rather, who is willing to star her any time
she desires. She told a rcpoi-ter that she pre
ferred to work patiently and become a star
in the legitimate course of her career rather
than start out prematurely ami run the risk
of not making a financial success. As she was
only 20 vears old, she averred that sho could
wait. Miss Kidder lxgan her stage career
when she was only 10 years old, and made a
success with Mayo in "Nordeck" and in Gil
lette's "Held by the Enemy." She is not at
all superstitious, but yet one season she pos
sessed a peacock fan which the manager de
clared brought bad luck to the door receipts.

Brain Weight of noya and Girl.
In the final result of the comparison of the
two sexes in the human race, anatomical re
searches will form on important factor.
Many anatomists bavo recogzuVed this fact,
and havo Instituted comparisons between the
sexes from various points of view. M. Gusta ve
le Bon reviews the work of M. Manouv:-ier
and that of M. Budln, both of whom aver
that sex has no influence on brain weight.
With them the influence of sex is nothing
more than the influence of height; and if the
females, as a whole, exceed the males in brain
weight, it is simply because the weight of tho
body In the females is much belowthat of the
males." M. le Bon puts the theory of his ad
versaries to the test in a very ingenious man
ner by comparing tho Urains of males and
females having about the same weight. By
this investigation it is shown that in the Great
majority of cases the male children surpass
toe lemaiesoi tho same weight in their cranial
circumference. At the same age, height, and
weight cf body, the female brain is notably
smaller than that of tho male. Herald of

Lend me your ears, and hear me
for my cause.
The Soap I come to speak about
is the Great Santa Claus.
'Tis good for every purpose.
For which a soap is needed,
And joy will bring to
Who lias wise counsel
And spent a nickel, just to
What wonders it will do,
To lighten labor, save expense
And make things brightand new.
