" 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. Hood's

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-
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

lines of derharkation between gambling
and, legitimate business are shadowy:
The moral quality of any act is best de

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.

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

Prof.. Geo. . Harris admirably ex
presses the idea in these words:

thing, in the development of man in

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.
