A Judge in St. Louis has dis charged a master f a public school who was prosecuted for whipping a boy after milder punishment had been of no avail. The Court found that, in order to preserve discipline, the teacher must determine the necessity, the na ture and extent of punishment, his acts, like those of a parcnt.'being subject to judicial review. The Judge also said "Four years' experience in the admin istration of criminal law convinces me that the boys who become criminals are 'boys who don't get whipped; and when it is remembered that a large per centage of tiie bolder crimes known to the law is committed by youths ranging in age from fourteen to twenty years, the question arises, Is it better to whip firs' or imprison afterward?"

Boston Post. The Dogs of Thibet. It Is a century since Warren Hastings whose predilection for rare animals and desire to acclimatize them served to occupy and M nuse tho leisure of his later years, endeavored in vain to ob tain specimens of tho far famed dog of Thibet, and we are not aware that any other person has been subsequently more successful in introducing the breed into this country. Owing, how ever, to the kindness of Count Szech pnyi, a Hungarian nobleman, an ac count of whose interesting travels in the far Fast was published some two years ago, the Prince of Wales has be come the possessor of a male and fe. male of the race, and will probably with his wonted liberality atl'ord tho public an opportunity of seeing them in Hege;it's Park during the ensuing season. Count Szechenyi had heard so many reports in Chins- where, how ever, they are almost as great strangem as with us of the size and beauty ol these dogs that he was very anxious to become personally acquainted with them, and on the first opportunity which presented itself at Bataig, the frontier town of China on the route to Lassa, ho purchased three at a very considerable price, it l." understood. He found that they were fully jtleserv ing of their reputation in lodSs, cour age and sagacity. Ir. some respects they are said to resemble the handsom est specimens of the Newfoundland breed, but have a head very much larger, to which, moreover, an air of imposing dignity, if not lierceness, is added by a thick, shaggy mane, which ?:rows forward so as to encircle the face ike a frill. Their formidable aspect is still further enhanced in their native mountains by artificial means, for the shepherds and herdsmen who employ, anil ura Tprv rtrmid of rlipan UQi.fti but dreaded animals, often fasten round their necks boa-like wreaths made of the bristly hair of the yak and painted red, a species of decoration which gives them a still more leonine appear ance than that which they owe to na ture. Indeed, some drawings we have seen of them strongly recall to mind the king of beasts as imaged in herald ic devices e. g., in the arms of the Duke of ArgyL Tho color of their coats raries from black to light brown, the former predominating. The peo ple of Thibet tind them invaluable either to guard their flocks or as house watch-dog. In the latter capacity they display the utmost fierceness and hos tility to intruders on their master's property, and would be truly danger ous if not tied up by strong chains dur ing the day. Even when thus secured their furious barking and mad efforts to escape startle the passing travclet and warn him to give them a wide berth. It is curious that a rapid move ment of wagging the tail is with them a manifestation of anger and not of friendliness, as it is with their Euro pean cousins. As guardians of the sheep and" yak caravans implicit reli ance is placed on them; they preserve peace and order among their subjects as eil'ectually as Eastern despots of the better sort, and perhaps after the same fashion, viz.: by short shrift and heavy tolls; at any rate, they generally de fend them when attacked by man oi beast. London Times. Wit and Eloquence. a Where the traveler now encounter one beggar in Ireland, fifty years ago he would have met with fifty. The towns and villages swarmed with them A tourist in those days. was alternately moved to tears by sights of misery, and to laughter by bursts of genuine wit. The wit was mixed with blarney.which so delicately Mattered, that oliense was out of the question. Mr. S. C. Hall il lustrates the perfection with which an Irish beggar used what we Americans call "softjsawder," by pn incident tha' happened while he was visiting Maria Edgeworth, the popular Irish writer. He was driving with her one day, anc' the carriage, as soon as it stopped, was surrounded by beggars. "You know I never givo you any thing," she said to one, who was plead ing for a gift. As quick as a flash came the answer : "O, the Lord forgive j-e, Miss Edge worth! t lat's the first lie ye iver told." - - " j- - - Good luck to your ladyship's happj . .u:.. :e i 1 t face this morning!" sail another of the group. '"Sere you'll lave the .light heart in me bosom before ye go?" "O, tiien look at tiie poor who can't look at you, my lady," pleaded a blind man; "the dark man that can't seo your beauty is like your sweet voice." "O, the blessing of the widdy and five small children, that's waiting for your honor's bounty, be wid you on t le road!" called out a mother to Mr. Hall, as she led forth her fatherless children. "O. help tho poor crnythur that's got no children to show, yer honor!' shouted another woman; "they're down iu the sick nes ) and the man that owns them at isca." "Won't your ladyship buy a dying woman's prayers chape?" moaned sick female. "They're keeping me back from the p-mny you're going to give me, lady dear,' wailed an-)ther, on the outsUirUi of the crowd; "because I'm wake in myself, and my heart's broke wita the hunger," Can the reader parallel tho eloquence of t lose toucning appeals, outside of Ireland?

Noticing one pair of feet down tho lino that never budged at tho command, tho sergeant rushed up to the possessor of them, with drawn sword, and in inunaeiug tones de manded: "What do you mean by 'not facing about when I toll you? I'll have you put in the guard-house." "Why, I did, sergeant!" said the trenibl.ug recruit. "You did not, sir! Didn't I watch your feet? They never moved an inch." "Why, you see," said the poor fel low, "my shoes are so big that they don't turn when I do. I go through the motions on tlie inside of them." Harry M. Kicffi r. in Ut. fy'ichvlas.

Of such is the strategy, of western journalism. A'; T. Commercial Adve. User. The Consumption of Iron Per Capita. There is no doubt thn tho most olvil Izcd nations use the highest quantity per capita of any product. They nra aide to supply themselves) freely with the necessaries of lite, to furnish thorn selve s elaborately with the eonveuien. ces, and to lavish upon themselves sbund intly the luxuries of existence. Civilized nations not only surround themselves with plenty of food and pro cure it in great Variety, but they clothe themselves well, they, furnish their houses with completeness, they use ma chinery in their varied oiu pat ions, they bridge streams, they provide for them selves tho most comfortable and speedy means of transportation, and in every way they add ease, comfort, conven ience, and even pleasure to t he perform ance of the ordinary duties in life. It is therefore, quite comm m among po litical eixmomi'ts to, measure the ad vancement of a Xatiou toward the piano of high civilization by its consumption of such products a indicate tho devel opment, of mechanical skill or the wide spread existence of diversified industry. Wood, sulphur, iron, and other useful products are each rtcrred to as fur nishing tests for comparing the relative advancement in tho arts and .sciences of different peoples. To those who are interested in such investigations and comparisons a table of some value will be found in Mr. J .leans' recent report to the British Iron Iraue Association, of which he is sec retary. Mr. Jeans has made a careful calculation of the annual consumption of iron per capita of almost every conn- try in the world according to the latest advices. We presume, however, that in this case the rule laid down by polit ical economists will have to be varied from a little, if it can bo made JulViclently flexible, for surely the Falkland Islands cannot be the, center of the civilization of the globe yet their per capita consumption surpassed all competitors, being Hti7 pounds. New South Wales, too, can hardly be regarded as In the foremost rank of enlightenment, but it cjmes next, with pounds. These-antipodal regions seem to be immensct consumers of iron according to their population, for South' Australia Com is next, with 311 pounds. Grear. Britain is relegated to the fourth place in tuis list of iron absorbers, consuming but 287) pounds. Nevertheless, she triumphs over her lusty child, the United States, which an Dears as 1sin2r only 271 nounds. But along come two more of Great Britain's children Queensland, with 2G9 pounds, and West Australia, with 262 pounds. It is, ind ;ed, remarsa'ilo that all the countries so far named are English, or of English origin. Belgium now ap pears upon the scene, with 2:18 pounds. But back the banner goes to two more English colonies Victoria, with 2021 pounds, and New Zealand, with 187 pounds. And now comes France, though so wonderfully clever, far down in the list with 14J poun Is. thrifty Hollan 1 ranks next, with liii) pounds. Then follows the Anglo-Chinese settle ment of Hong Kong, with l.S3 pounds, and Uruguay, with 130 pounds, pre ced ng (can it be possible?) Germany, with only 12.H points. Surely this cannot be a goo I test of civilization, or else there is something wrong with tho figures. B it Wiiat comes next after Germany? The Fiji Islands, with 121J pounds. Then our neighbor, Canada, follows these islands of t ie South Sea, wi.h 120i pounds. No other country reaches a consumption of 100 pounds. Sweden com ;s not far from it; then c imos Tasmania. Newfoundland, the Capo of Good Hope, the East Indian 1 Straits sett'ements. Natal, the Argen tine Rep iblic, Malta, Denmark, Aus tria, and Norway. No other country, not even Spaiu, Portugal, Russia, or Italj", reaches a cons imption of thirty five pounds. Iron Age. Light-Weight Coins. if a a a It is well known taat coins lose year by year a certain part of tueir intrinsic value by abrasion in the ordinary and legiti.nute wear anil tear of trade. The pro jess is more rapid when tne coins are new, becausi tnen the elges are sharp, but it is steady and continuous ii tue coins remain in circulation. Caro- -1 . . 1 . 'Intimites indicate for example, that an Kn rbsn sovereign loses, on tlie aver- an English sovereign loses, on tiie aver age, oue grain in twenty years. Just at p res j ni t.ie English bankers are good dal disturbed over this matter, because m jre than h.lf of the gold coin in circulation in Great Britain is under full weight. In their transactions with t.ie BauK of England the latter receives ojly by weight what other banks and bankers roeivo by tale, the conse quence being tnnt most of the loss rep resented by t.ie margin between two values falls upon tnc han'ts. Several plans have been suggested for rem mying flu difilMlty and .su istitu ting full weight for light-weight coins. In 181. and lii'O, when tae sa.ne trouble was experienced tho.ig.i on neither occasion was it so serious as no.y tho Bin k of England was empowered by royal procl.uuj.tion to tae all the light gold brought to it, t.ie price in lrt42 be- eingiJliS l(i)d per ounce, which 1U1 per ounce more than tho usual pnei f r bar gol l4 an I 4d more than generally given for light gold coin. But t.i.i 1 osi on toe lig it gold sent in was a good d.;al mo.o than lour pence, and was probajly nearer eigiit pence per ouncj. Iu 1670 tie price allowed was 1J pence less, and too amount sent In was trilling. Toe problem is a very tii lli -11 1 1 one. The loss must fall eituer uoon the community, the banks, or the uulu -ky and innocent last holders of lig.it-weignt pie.'c.s. It has been sug 1 giisted tnat the Government- should ' 111 ike an allowance of one grain in every sovercignof twenty years old and of n.ilf a grain in a half-sovereign of ten yej.rs olj, an t bj on in proportion tu ag.' this beinj; the known rate a' w.iich the two coins bee oni.i reduced in woigiit. Another prop isition is that 1 10 lijvern.nent, through tho Bank of Englanl, sluuld privately notify every I bank of its readiness before a ceriain I date and within certain limitations of I exchange full-weight for light-w.'lglit coin. jJitt it is doubtful wuetner such I a degree of secrecy could bo preserved I as would prevent, a considerable dis . turjance of the currency by tlio llooding I of the banks with light coins, to say nothing of tlie danger of extending tuo J practice of "sweating" coins by tho use of acids or the batt try. There are, in deed, serious dillicullies in t.ie way ol any remedy that can be suggested. London Times.

Consideration for Old Employes. 1 . a rhysieal vigor and mental activity arc necessary in all kinds of employ ment and all sorts of business. Lavk ing either, the m m is, jn somo degree incompetent. 1 he cases are exception- at where profitable employment ts luted to the inlirm, whether physically weak or mentally slow. And yet thore ar cases where employment and occupa tion should be given to such persons, not alone as a matter of policy to pre vent mental and bodily injury but as a duty. An employe who has spent the vigor of his best years in the serv ice of an employer deserves something more in his last years than cold neglect. Even the turning out of an old horse to die is a subject for attention by the officers of humane societies. If any employe is of any value what ever, he ought to earn for his employer something above Ms stipend; in fact, the labor of employes, combined with the judicious use of capital, should ac cumulate for tho employer a compe tency, if not actual wealth. The wealth thus gathered represents, in part, the excess of the value of the labor per formed above the amount that has been paid to the laborers. Although the employe has no right to demand more, than tho agreed sum as wages, or sal ary, which ho receives, the fact remains that the wages, or salary, may not rep resent tho proceeds of his work in full. This fact may not constitute even a moral claim by the employe for any thing beyond his regular compensation tinder any circumstances. It may be that the compensation was Hiulc'ent to have placed tho employe, in Ins old age or feebleness, in a condition of compar ative independence, but he may have neglected to provide for the inevitable rainy day. Employers have no special supererogatory duties toward employes of this class. Nor is it, perhaps, incum bent on them to pension oil" old em ployes, as Governments sometimes do public servants. The circumstances will alter the eases. It is not to be ex pected that employing establishments or individuals are to become insurers against the decrepitude of old age and its attendant incompetency. But the dictates of humanity and the demands of business policy may so far go har moniously together, as to prevent the too common' sp 'ctaele of an old, faith ful employe deprived not only of Eosition of prolit because of inability, ut of occupation adapted to his failing powers. There are tew sadder sights than this, and pity for the unfortunate man and detestation for his thoughtless or perhaps avaricious employer is felt by every spectator. As men grow old in any particular service their business ways and work habits become fixed, and all the sur roundings of their secular days' em ployments become more familiar to them than their home life. It is like casting them adrift without rudder, oars, or chart to turn out old employes under such circumstances. Who has not felt a pity for some superannuated employe thus set adrift, as he has noticed him returned occasionally to his old haunts, and looking about wistfully on scenes of which he once formed a necessary part, but in which he is now only an incumbrance and a disturbing element. Too old to start anew in another line, and possessing none of the hopefulness of youlh and the ambition of mid-age, he becomes disheartened, melancholy and perhaps imbecile, until death steps in to his relief. , There is a large manufactory .in New England State that for more than thirty years has been running with pe cuniary success, employing young and old, male and female, in its various de partments. When business has been dull and the markets unstable, work hf.s been reduced and wages shortened, as was necessary to prevent financial disaster. But good employes were kept, if possible, even in tlie dullest times. There never was a strike, nor a threat of one, in this establishment. Among other humane practices and considerate measures for the comfort and well-being of their employes, the company keep their hands even when . old and unprofitable. There is one old man, now more than eighty, who has worked faithfully for the best part his vigorous manhood, for the compa ny. Ho still works not, however, full 11 y xxci Bio. n ui as -iiui, lloivt:vei, lull lloursaml his employment is of . V. - trilling a character that but for the cir cumstances it would be ludicrous. But the old man is proud of his employers and that he is still able to work, and living a happy, contented life, believing that lie is independent of charity and that he is still useful, if not necessary, to his employers. This is an example that might properly be followed otners. Scientific American. Dramatic, but Doubtful. a is is : A story which, if true, would startling, and which is interesting wnether true or false, coram from the Town of Lake View. It runs as fol lows: A few days ago a gentleman re siding in that town drew three hundred dollars from a bank in the city with which to meet an obligation, and 1 took it homo with him. Before had an opportunity to dis ),o burse it he was called from home to( remain over night. His wife wa. rendered quite nervous by the knowl edge that sucii a sum of money was the house, and objected to being alone. It was suggested that a relative should be asked to act as guard for the night, but at length it was decided that if the services of a huge Newfoundland dog, the property of the landlord, who lived on the upper floor of tlie same house, could be secured the wife would consent to her husband's absence. The landlord consented 'oan the dog after being informed the situation, but w:is particular to cau tion the lady that, in the event of any burglar entering the house during the nig.it, sho must rem lin perfectly .quiet and let the d g attend to tho business in hand. The husband went away. Sure enough, during the night the wife was awakened by tlie presence of masked burglar in her room. Kcmem buring the landlord's injunction, she remained quiet, and was rewarded seeing the faithful dog spring upon and throttle tho intruder. After a terrible struggle tho dog was victorious, and the man lay .unconscious on the floor. Satis'yiug herself that he was helpless the lady arose and struck a light and was horrified to discover that he was the landlord and the owner of the dog that had protected her. In the dark ness and under the mask the animal had not recognized his master. The landlord died Monday night, as the story goes. Chicago Tribune. The Bonneville (Miss.)

Roots in the Air. 1 , I He who stands for the first in a tronj. orj forest will be struck most forcibly, tierhps, by the singular appearance of the numerous aerial roots. These slendei cords hang in tangled skeins among the branches, swaying in the light breeze or cnrling against the trunk of a tree to mingle with leaves and branches, or, growing thicker and more woody the older they become, fi mlly themselves afford foothold for a fern or an orchid. Voe is astonished to find how strong these cord-like roots are. They hung in mid-air, like swaying threads from a spider's web, and often fall from a branch fifty or sixty feet from the ground, and are strong enonch to sus tain, not ten or twenty pounds only, but even bear a fifty-pound weight wiiliut breaking. Home of these air roots descend to the ground and as soon as they resell the earth bury themselves, to act like ordinary roots. After the hungry fingers are able to cling to the ground the "air-roots rapidly increase in size. Others descend, twining around tho first, and the mans finally becomes a tree itself in size. Sometimes the slender rootlets creep close to the trunk of tree, almost imbedding themselves in the bark. Home, starting in this way from the point where the main branches of a tree first crew from the trunk, send down air-roors oil all sides at once and finally choke and destroy the original tree to which in their infancy they cliug lor protection. hxchangc. The Effect of the Bridge. a The East river bridge, by changing the conditions of travel between the two cities, has already began to exert its in fluenee on certain business interests. The ferry company, whose boats cros at the same point, has announced a re duction of rates, and the stall owners in the new Fulton market iu New York are much exercised as to the effect which the bridge will have on their business. The market has just been rebuilt and re opened, and though many of the large dealers have their trade with the hotels, restaurants, and other big consumers, a large revenue was derived from the transient customers passing by Fulton ferry to Brooklyn. The Tribune be lieves thatTiill the Fulton street mer chants will be somewhat affected, as the trade of the street, especially that of its tiumerous Mgin mills, is chiefly depend ent on the passing crowds. A woman appealed to a New Jork policeman, the other day, to aid her ii resisting a desire to commit suicide fc-he said the Lord had commanded hei to end her life that His eye was at that moment upon her, and she felt a rope around her neck.
