Gen. Pass. Agt. C, B. & Q. R. R.,
Education and Life.
It is a common jelief that education
wears out the bod and invigorates tho
mind. Also that nervous diseases are
more common am g civilized nations
than among the savages, because the
latter without edu ?ation are able to at
tain and majntair. physical perfection.
It is claimed, by n yself, as well as other
investigator, that the educated man, the
man who studies I lost, while not physic
ally strong, is yet not weak and is much
more able to withstand a given period
of nervous tension than is the man with
the excellent physique and the moder
ate comprehension. In fact the intel
ligent mind' may be physically sick all
through life and J tt live on in "this mis
ery to a good old age, while the strong
physique breaks d jwn early, and having
no mental or nervous acumen die very
quickly and only it a moderate age.
Among the lowest African tribes, cur
rently fcuppoeed to be almost devoid of
nerves, nervous ( iseases are very com
mon. Ia r.;. ;tire tribes are mere
wrecks ami only live a little time. It is
safe to say that with the advent of civ
ilization these triles would regain phys
ical strength. M r best study has been
given to the prominent educators of the
world, most of vhom I find physically
weak, but living on and doing work daily
that would kill Ihe ordinary laborer in
less than three j ears. Interview in St.
A Iiatrtzs A ppearanee.
Nat Goodwin siys that he was scared
almost to death during Lis first apjxar
ance, and the story that he tells certain
ly gives color to that assertion.
In lS7o," he said, "I signed for the
season to appear Ji juvenile roles at the
I"rovidence Opera House. In a melo
drama called 'The Bottle' I was cast
for the part of t'te horrid young villain
who is forcing his unwelcome attention
on the good your g heroine. I thought I
was right in it until I made my first
6peech, and then I discovered my mis
take. In the first act I am supposed to
suddenly come upon the heroine alone,
and I deliver th-s line: 'So, I have you
again, my sweet beauty! Why do yon
avoid me thus? I had not more than de
livered that line when the girl turned on
me and let out an unearthly screech that
scared me to death. It shook every line
out of my head, and I stood as if I had
been suddenly attacked with lockjaw.
The heroine was quick to see my plight,
however, and sh went right on with the
play, repeating my lines and then her
own. As soon r s I saw a chance I made
a bolt for the stage door, and with all
my makeup on look the next train back
