The rule of self-study la the demand of golf that is oftenest discussed In the trea tises, and set forth with the greatest full ness of Illustration and analysis, but the true nature of It, the extent and limit of It. the little more and the little less of it. Is best made plain, I fancy, only by persist ing with this same analogy to life which already, no doubt. Is growing tiresome. For the line between the self-study which is I needful and the self-consciousness which is fatal Is precisely the same In both. You discover, let us say, that the position of your left foot In driving Is wrong, and by practice ascertain that you should set it thus, and not so. Nothing, surely, can be simpler; you will thenceforth avoid the ! error, and slice or pull no more. But It Is not merely necessary to place that left foot properly; It Is necessary to leave It there, to withdraw your mind from It. to redis tribute your attention, or will, or whatever may be the right term, throughout all the parts of your anatomy. A hang, a catch, a snap of the Ud. and you are snared; your left foot will not down. At every stroke It will offend you. It Is no longer yours, but Is become a foreign and an alien thing. It rises up and kicks you; it ?hall be set upon your neck. Rebellion and civil war Is let loose within your state. Conquer it you may. but you know not when it will again grow outrageous. You are cursed with a besetting sin. and In the time of stress it will find you out. Hence forth, only by a constant watching and willing can you doubtfully maintain your poise between the outward and the Inward thought, and precariously regain the whole ness you have lost. How High Can a Balloon Bise. From Harper'i Magazine. The altitude that may be attained by a balloon depends, first, upon Its size; second ly, upon the filling of gas, and, thirdly, upon the weight being carried. A balloon of ordinary size. 43,000 cubic feet, carrying the smallest weight?that is, one person? when filled with illuminating gas may reach 30,000 feet, but when filled with hy drogen 27.000 feet. In order to ascend higher we first of all need a bigger balloon. One may say It was a happy chance that the Royal Meteorological Institute of Berlin was provided with a balloon of the unusual dimensions of 300,000 cubic feet. The Ger man emperor furnished ?800 for making ex periments with it. and the Meteorological Institute decided to make use of this op portunity for studying the highest regions of atmosphera.

BOYS AND GIRLS OF CTTBA. Question of Providing Schooling for Half a Million. From tbo Cuban Agriculturist, Havana. Where and how shall the 500.000 children of school age in Cuba be provided for where there is only room and teachers for 180,000? What shall be done for the re maining 320,000? If we could reach the ears of the mothers of the 80.000,000 people of the great and powerful nation to the north, whose children are all comfortably clothed and provided with a snug little desk in the hundreds of thousands of school buildings where education Is as free as air, we would ask them to come here and watch the fares of these little uncared-for waifs as they see their more fortunate fellows go by with their satchel or packet of books on their way to school, as the writer has done. We are sure they would be deeply moved. If their thoughts could be portrayed In words as their feelings are upon their faces, they would wring tears from a stone image. Surely If the truth of the condition of these 320,000 children could be brought to the minds of these mothers, some action would be taken, some movement set on foot by which this moral tragedy could be brought to an end. For three hundred years It has shrouded the greater part of the people of these islands in mental dark ness. In the name of Ood and humanity may it now terminate! . Surely toffit public movement might be set on foot and money raised by subscrip tion, even if it cannot be supplied by act of Congress. Some of the Rockefellers or Carnegie*, who are endowing colleges and public libraries with their millions, might be persuaded to take a little interest in these forsaken, neglected little boys and girls, who are now only able to hopelessly and sadly look at the outside of a school house, and who, unless times quickly change for the better on this island, are doomed to grow up In ignorance and vice aod be added to the illiterate class which three years ago comprised about 03 per cent of the in habitants. WORKING GIRLS' VACATIONS. Vast Amount of Good Done by a Man hattan Organization. From American Medlc-lne. We wonder In how many cities there are organizations similar to that excellent one In New York for aiding working girls to have a little rest and recuperation during the summer. This society Is now at the beginning of Its eighteenth year of success ful work. Last year 723 girls were given vacations of about two weeks each. While It Is a rule of the society to assist only those to whom a t?rm of rest will mean re newed strength to take up their work, and though care Is taken In all Its benefactions, there Is still a vast army of girls who could be helped If sufficient means were provided. The majority of the girls helped by the society give the larger portion of their wages for the support of their families, but cach one pays what she can for her vacation. These amounts are usually very small, and. under the circumstances, pa thetic. The society has under Its charge eight houses?two at Santa t'lara. in the Adirondacks, where girls with a tendency toward lung troubles are sent; the other sir at Greycourt. Orange county; Tlwmp convllle, Sullivan county, and Farmington. Greens Farms. Westport and Southport, Conn. It is an old aphorism that The pre vention of disease is better than the cure. How many "breakdowns" might be pre vented by the admirable expedient of two weeks In the heallnc quiet of the country or seashore! Ships to Be Held at San Juan.
