But Grow, Twice w ithin a few months our al ien) ion has been called to the statement that somebody bavin"; put down a round million, or even half that sum, we are now to have the true American university, to rival the fjrcal founda tions abroad. There is no reason, cer tainly, why people, who have money for the hielicr education should not in dulge in "the pleasures of hope," and ! work with all their mie;ht lo make j their new school, in some respects at ' least, an improvement on Htiythino now established. Hut when we con- j template. Ihe frightful wreck of college . endowments and the hu initial inn failure of the inao nilicent. expectations of the I past lifty years in all parts of our coun try, we may well pause ami consider , a few facts conceiniii"; the corner- I stones of American colh-ire life. How- ever needful a pile of money may he in the development of an educational institution, no successful college was ; ever established on money as Us cor- : ncr-slone 1 tic history ot the halt do.cti new American eollcfjes for men and women Hint near the name of a wealthy founder is no exception to this remark. Vassal-, .Smith and Wcllcslcy came into bcinn in meet a new necessity for Ihe higher education of eirls; and they, with all similar colleircs for women, in the future will rise or fall accordine; to the real demand forcollee culture, the breadth and thoroughness of their work, and Ihe attractive personality ot their lacully. We heiieve that in the Northern Slates, certainly east of the Mississippi, there now exists, in the co educational and exclusive colleges lot women, abundant opport unities for tin ecnuinc collegiate education of e-'ul-: ami that the multiplication of such schools w ill cither diminish the patron age of the best, or nourish that most mischievous of educational hunibujrs, the calliii"; female seminaries and acad emics colleges and universities, and tcinplino; irtecti school-e;irls to put on the airs of the higher education. The Soulli needs one college similar lo those already named, when' a good gii! can be educated for two hundred dollars a year, besides the opening ol the Slate universities to women, .lohn Hopkins, Vauderbilt. l'aekcr and other new foundations are nourishing tie cording lo tin" inevirablc law of uni versity life. This law is that the tour corners of every valuable college must rest upon, tir-t, the supply of genuine col lege III at rial; second.

In the absence ot lither, the proudest structure in the grandest city, with Ihe biggest bank account, behind it. will ,,nl he another mar nilicent failure.

How Boys Are Taught to Drink In Nearly All the Manufactories and Workshops In Chicago. A writer in Ihe ('hicngn Tribune of a recent date say i: "Tin; reports of the work of the Citizens' League show that Ihe agent pays very little nltcn tion to oflentling saloon-kccper.H in the manufacturing districts of the city. The sa'o ins cluster around nnd t rowd lis close us possible upon the work shops. The indolent, burly fellow who Mtand in their doors in white aproni watching for "trade" ought to he wielding im ax or a shovel everr man of litem. The poorest employe is not more jubilant than they w hen pay night arrivi s. and none knows the day or the hour better than they. They watch with intense interest the clo-'ng hour w hen Ihe crowd comes forth, ami, with a bland smile, they welcome "the hoys." Scores are sipi.tivil up, there I are general treats, and soon the saloon- j ists have possesion ot a large share of ! the caruinirs of the workmen that I ought to carry cheer and conilert to their homes. The w orst of it is many employers pay into the hands of the mloon-kei -pel's. There are faetoriei where the machinery is stopped for a few minutes in the forenoon and in the afternoon in order that beer or whisky may he sent for, and the time so lo-t is made up at noon. There arc factories where st rung drink is allow, d at the noon hour only. It is a common thing for a few men in each department to engage a Muall hoy to run on this er rand. The moment the whistle is heard he ritshi"i away to the saloon with a stick ahout thirty inches long in cither hand, .and upon each are strung fi ur or six beer-bottles to be tilled. These -kids' come in for a small share of the beer, and pay-night they get a few cents from the men they serve. "Il is a shame that employers should allow boy s to he so used. They are eipially r'uilly in violating one of the best laws we ever had in this State the Dramshop act.' They would con fer tin untold blessing upon society and he gainers themselves if they would in good faith put up conspicuous notices in every department of their factories: 'No strong drink allowed upon these premises under penalty of a discharge.' Men would go out to a saloon, but their influence in debasing the hoys ; nnd voting nu n would certainly be curtailed. and very few know how many are brought to rum in this way. Less than a week ago. in one of the most orderly and best-managed of the large shops on South Canal street, three young men about twenty -one of them the engin eerand two boys about fourteen were "fired" for a drunken riot in the base ment, where they were at work. Strong drink is carried into that shop daily a. noon. If prevention is better than cure this would seem like beginning at the wrong end. and yet it is eoing on per petually, differing only a little from the present case, where they became help lessly drunk am! 'raised Ned.' "Every foreman or manager of ex perience can easily discern the growth of the drink habit in young men and boys. No matter how bright and prom ising they were when lir.-t employed they soon show the slouch and the sloven; they hi conic stupid and inapt to learn, they have no desire for ad vancement, tiny become unprofitable to their employers, and if they do not demand more wages -which is gener ally the case- s'inie pretext is found for getting rid of them. Hut litlh: can be done lo reclaim the confirmed ine briate. Tiie theory held by a great nianv a few years ago that he could he transformed a- if by magic, iiistantrr, from a w orthies-' bum into a model of sobriety and Christian grace, and re- I main so is qttitk- generally exploded, j There seems lo be bill a single e nirse j open, and that is to prevent, as far as we can. the bovs from becoming inebriate. to remove as far as possible the temptation. To leave a temptation in the way of people and threaten them with punishment if they yield has been a failure from the days of Mother Kve. Labor is not backward in combining iigaiii-t capital, nor capital against la bor, but the brightest day that will dawn upon the world will be that when both are combined to stay the evils of strong think. It is a constant quality in the problem that both arc try ing to solve. Who will try in '.he way indi cated lo save the hoys in our factories'; " THE "MILDER" BEVERAGES. Bits of Experience in the Wine and Beer Drinking Countries of Europe. Then seems to be a general impres sion that the lighter beverages, beer and wine, w ill drive out the mere in toxicating. Discriminating license laws arc made so a.s lo favor them. For ar gument and example to support this impression, we are bidden to look to the wine and beer districts of France nnd (ienuany. Travelers coining home tell its many stories of delightful even ings spent in beer-gardens, and of pleasant afternoons at the cafe. They sav that thev saw no intoxicated per- son. Furiher. they tell us that the water is so bad that it is impossible- to drink it with safety to one's health; that wine is very cheap, and always placed upon the hotel table free. All this litis an influence tinnti the minds ol men. and makes one think that noth ing w ould he so bene licial to real Tem perance as the establishment of the beer-garden and cafe in every town and Idly.

For even poor wine you w ill pav from lifty cents a pint up. it mcms strange to near men speak of there being no drunkenness in (ier tnnny. I have sometimes asked myself where were theireves, or what was tlmir definition of drunkenness. I shall cer tainly never forget a certain Sunday spi nt in Cologne, v here I saw morn drunken men in ihe street than I had ever seen in miv one day in any Amer ican city.

I think I lnu-t be w roll I am trio cld- fashionett in my ideas.' Then the thought in -cured: "Walch these gardens until they close up; entile around everr hour, ami sec how these people art.' So I did. I took my rounds every hour. Al len o'clock stii'l ev rything w as !leasant. At elev en o'clock the crowd lad thinned a little, mwl I noticed that here and there a head was on the table, the talk was less livi-ly. At twelve, o'clock but half remained.

As ' 1 looked through the won railing t could see in.cn, women and children .stretched out upon the greensward, or some with hads upon the table. If I had asked x waiter he would doubtless have told roe that they were asleep but the heavy breathing told that it w a something more than the sweet natural sleep; it seemed like the sleep of drunk- , enness. They were overcome by a ' drunken sleep. I was glad that I had t watched for the dark side of the pict- I urc. They tell us that it is a beautiful picture to see a man in a beer gaidan with his family. Hut who wants his child brought up in a beer garden? Will we be any better off when our .statesmen and theologians discuss the great topics of our time anit all time w ith brains that are muddled w ilh beer? Kngland, a few years ago, thought to ' driii' out the .stronger liquors by en- j cournging beer-shops, but only found that it increased the sale of the stronger j liquors. How is it in that great wine producing country. France? 1'aris for France is Paris and Paris is France Paris, years ago. may have been partial to wine, hut she is not so to-day . Walk through the streets of Paris any Sunday afternoon (for that is the festal day) nnd watch the little groups collected around the tallies that ob struct the sidewalks in front of what Used lo lie the wine-shops. What are ! they calling for? Wine? No; but ab sinthe. Look up at the signs, and in great hu ge letters you will see upon all these shops the word 'Absinthe." I This is the drink of Paris to-day.
