AW CASTORU A PEEK or HELEN It LLEU- Deaf and Dank Boy H ki Is One of Ika Brisk test C III. Rim. For fourteen years, reports the Xevt York Herald, Orris Benson has lived in dense darkness and absolute silence yet he has developed a most chee-ful disposition, more than ordinary capa bilities for learning- and an aosolute genius as a modeler. For several years he has been a pupil in the New York Institution for the Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb, which he en tered little more than an animated organism, with no sense but that of touch; yet through patient training under the direction of Enoch H. Car rier, principal, he has shown a men tal growth and perception that are as tonishing and are attracting wide at tention. Orris is 16 years old. He is the son of a carpenter living at White Lake, Sullivan county, this state, and when 2 years old suffered from an attack of cerebro-spinal meningitis that depriv ed him of his sight, speech and hear ing. He was helpless, and for years was alone in a mental darkness as great as the physical one that sur rounded him in his terrible silence. Then he was brought to New York and the apparently hopeless task of developing mental facunties that were on the road to idiocy through neglect was entered upon. Miss Bessie L. Nixon was assigned to instruct him, and with a kindly pressure of the h--d she tried to im press upon his al.nost dormant con sciousness the fact that she was his friend, wished him well and would do what she could for him. With what interest was watched the slow progress of kindling the first mental 'spark in that almost isolated mind. His gentle teacher communi cated to him certain simple inquiries by moving her fingers, according to the manual, within the palm of his hand. At first the pronunciation of the words was mechanical, and the mental effect was devoted merely to the ef fecting of the combination of sounds. With persistent practice the boy learn ed to think out words, the vocal or gans were trainedinto use, and then enunciation came, uncertain at first, but afterwards with sufficient clear ness to be understood. After the first certain mental com munication was established between teacher and pupil the task became really fascinating. Every month the mental growth was such that the teacher found in the blind boy remark able powers of intellect, anu soon he became the shining light of the in stitution. So it has gone from that day until this, wh remarkable p-3- gress at every ste, . Orris Benson has become an expert moaeier in clay, and the most clevei thing he has done is Grant's tomb in miniature. His eves have not seen the tomb, and he has not more tha touched its massive columns; but he has faithfully copied it, even to the details of ornamentation. How? He has not even heard a de scription of it, but he has seen it through me eyes of one of his deaf fellows, and has been told by fingers as clever as his how the beautiful structure looks and how the v irious details of its architecture are arrang ed. This information, carried through the lingers and palm, formed a denn ite and mainly correct mental picture wnicn the sightless boy reproduced in piasic clay, showing wonderful artis tic skill and perception. This is really a wonderful thing wnen we consider that the boy knows absolutely nothing of the appearance of buildings either in general effect or proportions, excepting such infor mation as is conveyed to him through the sense of touch. He has no memory of sight before he was blind, at bis mind was practically- blank when his e "ucation was begin seven years ago. The tomb is the last oi the boy: works in clay, l.w first being a rather rudely executed key, the forming of wnicn gave hi:n intense delight. It has been me same with his other mod els. The creation of them has sriven the modeler great pleasure as he has felt them grow into shape under his fingers. To his other accomplishments he has added the tvpewriter. on which he is a most rapid and correct operator, seldom making a mistake. He is quite proud of this accomplishment. His hours at work are given principally to caning chairs, at which he is an ex pert and at which he will probably earn his living. when he graduates. Ill iUe swamps of the Philippine Is lands they have mosquitos that re lieve each other like hawks and owls, seme species being entirely nocturnal, while others transact business on the eight-hour plan, and never go to work till the sun has dissipated the morning mists. Travelers in the coast forests are always assailed by bush leeches, by ants and enterprising ticks that cling to the lower end of overhanging branches and drop on the first biped or fourfooter that happens to come along. In houses of ordinary con struction it is almost impossible to prevent the intrusion of such pests, and in the woodland ranches of Lu zon and Mindanao the state of af fairs often realizes the description of Sidney Smith: "Insects which nobody but Merriam and Swammerdam ever saw before are crawling up your sleeve; a crea ture with six wings and sixteen puir of legs is struggling in the small-beer, while a nondescript with nine eyes in its belly is hastening across the bread and butter."

I tried it once, and the first man who came through the door was as poor as a church mouse. New York Journal. An Ideal Climate. The first white man to set- foot on Utah soil, Father Silvestre Yelez de Escalante, reached the GREAT SALT LAKE on the 23rd day of September". 1776, wrote in his diary: ''Here the climate is so delicious, the air so balmy, that it is a pleasure to breathe by day and by night."

Before a recent battle in Natal the Boers are reported to have stood on their kopjes with bared heads singing the hymns that all the Transvaal know from earliest childhood. These religious songs, handed down from generations, are ruggedly strong and simple. Beyond almost any other branch of the white race, the South African burghers are openly devout. Their prayers are not secret nor their psalms chanted apart from their daily vocations. An English writer refers to them as "saturat H with the bible." Their remarkable old president is en deared to them because he often goes into the pulpit to deliver a sermon, and one replete with living interest, as were the discourses of Spurgeon. In the scenes of war, as at homf the Boers are a praying people, sturdily and sternly pious, no matter if some would call them narrow. They are temperate, truthful and not unkindly. Have the British people fully estimat ed the military strength of 60,000 or 80,000 men of this moral fiber, fight ing with their homes at their backs? tf not, then a glance over the history of what soldiers of the religious type have done will clear away some of the illusions as to the seriousness of the task. In the sacred book which the Boers are said to be extraordinarily familiar the people in the foreground a a praying and fighting race, a people who passed through every phase of battle, seige, enslaved captivity and migration. Even the women had the warlike spirit and, like Miriam, sang the fervent songs of triumph and de liverance. Time has proved that such a strain of blood, founded on stable religious ground, cannot be extermin ated, but holds its place in the affairs of the world. While not a nation it is a part of all nations, and its theology and moral code tinge the most advanc ed civilization. The crusades of the middle ages turned Europe into a re ligious camp and the piodir'ua marches and battles of that era were marked by constant prayer and relig ious song. Modern records present the same phenomena. The praying soldier is a mighty man in the earth's annals. Cromwell's roundheads could not be shaken in defense nor resisted in attack. They, too, sang hymns on the battlefield and were brought up on scripture. New England's pilgrims carried hymn book in one hand and rifle in the other. Penn was a man of peace physicallly, but with a military spirit in the ethics that must not be disparaged in the government and de velopment of mankind. Gustavus Adolphus was a religious monitor as well as a great and victor ious general. His soldiers prayed openly as they fought their way through a third of Europe. Our own age has produced military leaders like Havelock and Stonewall Jackson, im bued with religious zeal and yet sol diers of the ablest type. Nor must the animating purpose of fighting Or iental races be forgotten when this subject is reckoned with. The hosts of Mohammed were checked at last on the plains of France. Not many years ago the dervishes, armed with knives A ltd lances, fiung themselves on Brit ish squares and repeating rifles. No antaganist is more stubborn or reck less of danger than the Turk of today. Before his religious chants the Greek army recently melted away in panic, defeated even before the battle was joined. With the Orientals religion may be a fatalistic fanaticism, but with the Boers it is a profound moral principle. He accepts it as an ele ment to be frankly declared in his everyday actions, in the army as well as in his quiet community and home. He is no ordinary foe man. To van quish 50,000 such men in their own rocky fastness, is an undertaking of, unknown magnitude. Our greatest glory is not in nem falling, but in rising every time we fall.
