suspect that there had been foul play,

SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS.
Human Nature Pretty Much the
[Qlt is a commonly received opinion that
it/is a woman's duty to In; as beautiful,
cr as nearly beautiful, as she cau. It is
a man's pr'vilege to bo ugly, but, as
Madame do Stael says, some men carry
this privilege too far.
"I wish I could co to church through
shady avenues and by violet beds," said
a Roanoke woman recently, "1 believe 1
should have a more worshipful mind. It
is trying to have my nainsook dress rub
blng against a potato barrel, while my
steps are heavenward bent."
Isn't it time that some one shou'tl pro?
test tigainst a custom that exists among
art pupils of boarding schools, that of
covering the walls of their homes with
the crude work they have done in the
class-room, Of what avail is the study?
ing of drawing and painting if it does
not cultivate the tastu sufficiently to
make one prefer the cheapest en graving
of a great picture to one's own school girt
copy of "A Yard of Kittens!'' Some of
these efforts remind one of what Carlylo I
said about "Sordello." He lead it, but
?vrts not able to tell whether Sordello
was a man, a city, or a castle.
One of the many pathetic things in life |
is the gap between educated children and
uneducated parents. That such separa?
tion exists is oftenet[tbe fault of parents
than of the boys at d girls. Buppose you
are forty or forty five, your daughter of
eighteen comes home with a diploma and
broad A. She loves and respects you,
but you make the mistake,of thrusting
her superiority upon her. You defer to
her judgment, as n [course in mathema?
tics fitted her to pronounce upon practi?
cal matters which only it wide experience
enables one to understand. V'uiely,
Knowledge of life, a cultivated will and
Insight into human nature should count
for much against mere youth and diplo?
mas. Suppose your sou has received a
medal at an ? xeellent college. Do not fall
down atid worship it, as many parents
have done. Thousands of students in this
land of schools recelxe distinctions, and
it does not follow because our son has ob?
tained a[ few honors that he is a genius,
or that he is your superior. A certain
class of parents ridicule the college ve?
neering which seems to them to be a ro
proach to their own lack of polish. This
is as serious an error as the other. With
? he purpose of doing the best you can for
your sous or (laughters,you semi them to
the most thorough school you can lind.
! They come into touch with modern ideas
i und methods and aie ne.cessuii'y inllu
I cuced by such association. if this con
tact results in contempt for all that is
not new, you should exorcise a parent's
privilege to correct, and inform. If not,
you should not throw discredit upon
what has been acquired at your advice
and under your guardianship.
Ronnokers realize that they live amid
beautiful surroundings. At the end of
the most commonplace street in the city
there is a view of a blue mountain, and a
few yaids from the st reet car lines the
prettiest of Virginia landscapes are
spread out In the city itself there a:o
many attractive homes with well-kepi,
lawns, but on eacdi side of some of the
neatest places, untidy vacant lots lower
the average appearance of n whole neigh?
bor he od, so that the general air of thrift,
care, and neatness which one sees in
some other towns, North or South, is
lacking here. A town improvement so
cicty,might do good work.
HarTIarbor owes some of It? beauty to
such a society. HaverhUI, Mass.. is a
cleanly, beautiful town in spite of the
fact that it leads in the. manufacture of
shoes. Though the odor of. leather is
everywhere, there aro no unsightly piles
of refuse in back streets.
The Northern mat, not'only holds 'the
opinion that his back yard should lie as
clean as the fiont door-step, but in ord?r
to prove that he has carried out his
theory, in many cases he has no back
fence, and the boundary "ine between his
grass plot and his neighbor's is invisible.
The Soatherer prefers a high fence and
thinks it is nobody's business what is in?
side of it.
it is of the utmost, importance that a
man should know los family history, for
that is conducive to self-knowledge.
What of your ancestors? Were they up?
right, noble, gifted? Learn as much as
yon can about them, measure th m?by
sane worthy standard, and bear in mind
I the characteristics of your people. Hut
1 remember that when all is said, as land,
I seemingly barren for centuries sometimes
blues richest ores, so there are sometimes
boundless hidden possibilities in what
seems to be ordinary human nature.
For the sake of Roanoke children I
could wish there were more older people
lu re. It is childhood's right to heat what
giiindmother did when she was young.
A home without the constant or frequent
presence of grandparents is a home with?
out, due perspective. There is an added
touch of fineness in the character of a
hoy who rercrences the old, and who
knows his grandfather well enough to sit
upon his fence and be told over and over
auain, ''What General Lee said when I
handed him the dispatches" or "How 1
courted your gtauitniother."
Among the pleasant.est influences In a
certain town about a hundred miles east
of here is the presence of three men who
embody the qualities most admired in
the old. One is a "beloved physician,"
with courtly [manners end a kindly
sal lie, and one a minister genial and
scholarly. The third has the ^ignided
liearlng of a man who has worthily filled
th* highest oflico in the State govern?
ment All thrpc are honored with the
love and admiration of their fello-*- towns?
