' TERRIBLE SUFFERING IN BRAZIL ! !
' New York, Sept. 26. A terrible story of
famine and pestiienoeis told by heEvening
Post's correspondent in Rio De Jeneiro. A
district in BrazM, equal in extent to the
New England, middle and Atlantic s'ates,
West Virginia, Ohio and Indiana combined,
has been without rain since July, 1876.
Brooks, springs and wells long ago dried
up. People perishing for want of food and
water, have lied from their homes, many
of them dying, sometimes whole families
together, before reaching a place of refuge.
Those of them who escaped have over
crowded the cities of refuge so greatly as,
; 'n some cases, to multiply the population
' 'by five, and they aro now herded togethor
. .in the open streets, living like swine, upon
f .scanty rations issued by the government,
,aud upon such refuse as they can gather
, in the gutlqrs. Well nigh naked and ut
terly debased by their Hutforings thoy live
in bestial immortality, not scrupling even
;to resort to cannabalism in some instances,
while small pox, yellow fever, dysentery,
,and some other diseases aro sweeping
them away by thousand. As if to leave
no comcu; of wretchedness out of acconrit;
they are victims of the moBt brutal ill
trealment at the hands of the police and
soldiery, and worse still at the hands of
vile speculators, who make trado of these
wretches' woes. The picture which the
correspondent presents is scarcely matched
in its ghastlineBs even by the old records
of Oriontal pbgue, and the story is more
distressing by reason of the fact that these
people were peaceful herdsmen and plant
ers, cultivators or the soil, whose homes
have been made desolate by a cause which
could not be foreseen or provided against.
Their woes are not thoBc of men who have
chosen a life of crime, but those of an in
dustrious agricultural people, afflicted 'first
with drought, then with famine, then with
! pestilence, and finally with that loss of
moral Bouse which brutalizes men without
the choice of their will. We have known
only that in parts of Brazil the rainy sea
son has failed, but we have not hitherto
dreamed that such a famine as this afflict
ed so vast a territory. Ex.
Good Breeding. That man who is
scrupulously polite and respectful to all
women in public but habitually saves
coarse manners and vulgar language
for his own wife and daughters, is no
gentleman. He is only an imposter.
The young man who oils his hair, puts
sweet odors upon his pocket handker
chief and bows with charming elegance
to Miss Arabella Spriggins and her
lady friends, and goes home to sneer
at his mother, and treat her with a dis
courtesy, is a rmchbeck immiUttion
only of a gentleman. Genuine good
manners and gentle breeding should
begin at home. As a rule the men in
a community who are the most trusted
are the best men at home. When a
man opens his front gate only to meet
his wife's face at the door radiant with
pleasure, and hears the shout from the
eager children, "Papa is coming!" it
is safe as a rule to lend that man money.
He. is honest and vy ill xepay .it if he can.
Boston newsboyc wear a badge
upon their jackets .with the number and
'license" upon it, in itself a guarantee
of good behavior, .for before obtaining
this from the city government the boys
are on probation a certain length of time.
If they prove woTthy and promise faith
fully to comply with the terms of a
"Minor's License,51 the Board of Alder
man make out their papers. By the
payment of one dollar a silver badge. is
given them, which they wear conspicu
ously in sight. If at any time they
wish to give up their licenses, their
badges are returned, and they get back
their dollar. As every child must go
to school in Boston for two hours a day
during the school year, there are two
special schools in which they and (lie
boot blackers, little peddlers, organ
boys and other children in trade, get
the1 full worth of their school hours, in
specialy graded studies. Wide Awake
