low a Young Lady Warmed a Batch
of Eggs to Life--Future Perils to
Lovers Stanley Matthews as a
L M1o the Neo York World. ]
A Kentucky newspaper brings us
an interesting story of a young
woman of that State who placed a
number of duck's eggs in her gentle
breast and warmed thln into ex -
istence, as benevolent people are
reprosented to do with adders.
This compassionate young lady's
notion was more or less laudable,
according as we discover whether
there was any selfsdenial in the
matter. If she was one of the
superfluous women such as abound
in Massachusetts she can perhaps
be dismissed with a low inced of
praise, inasmuch as she niy have
acted from merely utilitari in mo
tives or from the dosire to obtain a
pet in whom she shou(ld have some
gratefil sense of property and
depu ty-motherhood. As comparcd
with Skyo terriers, tabby-cats and
even street Arabs, the duckling has,
too, the advantage that it can be
eaten. If, on the other hand, this
young woman had admire! s, or a
lover, the duck's eggs which she
charished in her bosont m-ty be re
garde:1 as similar to the cogn to
poas of penitence that other sinners
were wont to we rr in their boots

of tggs is no more to be takcn to
one's arms thin a wet Newfuimnd
land dog. There are, however,
places where the heat of the hum m
ody is systomatically. utilized for
incubation. Mr. Frank Buekland
has written that in certain districts
of England where the goose is much
cultivated the cause of education
suffers because the people keep
their children at home to hatch out
the eggs, which. are placed with
them in warm beds. .There is
probably a good 1e.d to be said on
both sides of the qosetion here pre.
sented. It is desirable that the
agricultural laborers of the futuro
should be able to read and write,
but might riot this boon be pur
chased at too great a cost if it
involve:1 the scarcity of geese,
stubble and other? Men have been
authoritatively defined as of greater
value than many birds, but the
birds in question were sparrowvs,
and the sparrow is notoriously pug
nacio us, philoprogen itive, greedy
and deceitful. There is also this to
be said about the profession of
goose-egg hatching.-it is a sed,.
entary occupation whlolly incom
patible with what the ulliterative
Algernon has described as the roses
and roptures of Viee. The infant
incubator who attends strictly to
business cannot stone cats, steal
apples, smash windows and attach
pernicious parasitic pans and kettles
to, the stem of stray dogs. The
mind, too, has ample opportunity
for deliberate and thorough reflec
tion. Indt ed, so valuable does this
system of incubation seem, either
when regarded as a discipline or an
occupation, that we cannot but
regret that it has not .heen long ere
now introduced into this country.
There are scores and scores of
eminent statesmen that could be
utilized in- this manner. It would
have been money in the Republican
p arty's pocket had Mr. Stanley
Matthewvs, for instance, beeni in.
duced to concentrate his energies
on the incubation of three dozen
anserine eggs, duly proteeted by an
armor of down with a three...inch
packing of felt. There are thbou
sands of poets, book agents, lectur
ers, people who cross their logs
while riding street cars, basoe.ball
players, Oolorado orphans, authors
of "Beautiful Snow," exchange
fiends, -K(earneys, etc., etc., who
might be'made by a rigidly ad
. ministered IncubatLion law as useful
to society as now they are not.
WVell has the philosopher, whose
name up to the hour of going to

hatch where bofore there wore none

Some of the implacable organs

service reform a little sop by the
appointment of B. 1-. Bristow as
counsel for the government in the
South Carolina cases. Small favors
thankfully received these days.

Congressman Foster says that
"HLyos will give as much toward

suppose there is any ambiguity in
that reinak, but the actual truth is
that a great many people expected
Mr. Hayes to be an improvement on
Kearney to the Heathen Chinee:
"By the he.avens above and the stars
that are in it ; by the moon, that
pale empress of the night ; by the

The President has assured Mr.
Jorgenson, Itepublican candidate
for Congress in Virginia, that the
postmaster in his district ought to
help elect him. This assurance is,
no doubt, very comforting to Mr.
Jorgenson, but it might be more to
the point if the President would pay
up his promised contribution to the
Keatrney isn't earning his salt.
We have had quite enough of his
talk to get a fair idea of his master
ly style in that line not only, but
also of the masterly style of the
eloquent western Congressman who
originated a p~ortion of one of
Kearney's speeches. The wvorkin g
men are p)robably getting a little
implatient to see him try his hand at
hanging an editor or a bondholder.
Carpet- bag tactics seem to be
unsavory in the Democratic State
Convention of Louisiana. Four of
the New Orleans delegates having
been detected in an effort to sell
their votes for State treasure-, the
convention promptly expelled them.
Another outrage upon the policy
