D r i n k PURE Almost Blind Scrofula Affects the Eyes Little Boy Treated by an Oculist With out Relief But Now He Is Well. " Wben my little boy was three months old his eyes became very sore and he waj almost blind. I took him to an oculist who treated him for six months, and left him as bad as he was at the beginning. Finally Hood's Sarsaparilla was recom mended and I began giving it to him. In less than three weeks he was able to go into the sun without covering his eyes, and today his eyes are perfectly well, and his ears and nose, which were badly affected, are also well.

The crowd cares nothing, how ver, for this history. It looks at the few instances of suc cessful men, and expects to go education don't pull together." In order to -make these schools of real use, there must be created by the State, or bv individuals, diversified in- cross jdustries that will enable these educated lots" to. wealth instead of travelling children to gratify their wants, and .over the stony road3 that imany of the until it is done, the question is a just successful .men have passed. one. of what use are these schools, in the best sense of the term? This is 1 Brother Atherton is not quite ac- jan agricultural country, strictly speak - curate In declaring tnat speculation is ling, only a sugar producing country, immoral when it is conducted without and upon sugar, unless there is a crea- WATER. ooo- value as a basis, as for instance the buying and selling of wheat, without owning it. A vast amount of the legitimate busi ness of the country is carried cn with out owning the articles dealt in. The iron merchants buy pig iron, the -dry goods merchants buy cloths, the copper merchants buy copper, and these ar ticles are bought on contracts with out ownership or payment, and these contracts are .sold to those who need the articles, but have not anticipated a rise In prices. These contracts witlhout possession, however, are not hap-haz-ard, but are founded on experience, Knowledge, thought',- and these are en titled to an equivalent of profit. A transaction Avhich is legitimate busi ness in one case, is speculation or gambling in another case. Homicide anay be a crime or a virtuous act, ac cording to the circumstances. The lines of derharkation between gambling and, legitimate business are shadowy: The moral quality of any act is best de fined after its effect on the mind of the author of it is known. OF WHAT USE The words "Of what iie?" might be written over the entrance of the Prin cess Kaiulani School at Pal a ma. They should not imply that the school is of no use whatever, but that it fails to be ol the. best use. The building itself gives credit to minister, to architects, to teacher and to the taxpayers who are willing to pay for it. The children will be instructed with in its walls, as they have been here- T.IM.U1C7 illS 11 LICCll, ll-l lilt 1 lv 'iiivin.., more than that, through the intelligent energy of the principal, commendable without measure, they will learn much about the world and the nice things that are in it, and about the pleasure of having these things. And so Ions a3 the pupils remain .in the school, they learn to despise the savages who nave no wants, and whose measure of happiness is the bow and arrow and a hut. Their education will urge them to lead the lives- of civilized people who want a thousand things that the savages never heard of or do not care for, or as the French traveller express ed it: "Ah! you teach the savages A, B, C, then he wants trowsers and a gold watch." While this system of education is applied in this and the other school houses, the children of the Anglo Saxons, the Portuguese, the natives, the Chinese and the Japanese are, daily and most faithfully, instructed so as to surely and swiftly develope wants wnich are expensive things to possess. Prof.. Geo. . Harris admirably ex presses the idea in these words: "Progress, then, consists in the in crease of wants, or, which is the same thing, in the development of man in the consciousness and satisfaction of fJlTWlcitV " tion of diversified industries, all of us must live. These young people, as a rule, must and should go to the soil for a living. The state gives tnem educa tion in a building which is beautifu! and artistic, in wnich there is the best instruction, and when they leave it, it virtually ipoints out to them the way to the plantations and the tenant life of laborers where the wages are such as to make it a mockery to say that their wants can be supplied. . . Dr. J. G. Holland, the writer, said that the result of establishing academies in the New England towns was the abandonment of their homes by the young people who fled to the cities, because they had not been taught to develope New England soil. The land they abandoned the Irish and Canadian French occupied. What is the drift, the outcome, of our system of education? Hawaii Stiinpo Stia. THE" PIONEER JAPANESE PRINT ING OFFICE.
