The more stylish clothing. The News has a right to kick, to I country boy hears a well dress ed (but low bred) city boy swear and he at once emulates the city boy's example. He sees the well-dressed city youth drink and he patterns after him, and thinks it is smart. The country boy probably sees more of the disreputable side of city life than be does of the moral and purer side and because be observes so much of tbe evil side he imagines that tbe evil predominates, and in his blind ness he apes the city youth and thinks it manly to do so; but he never makes a greater mistake in his life. Tbe writer has heard more profanity among country boys in proportion to number than among city youth. This is a sad commentary upon country youth, but it is true. me Doy in tne country who is reared in the pure ozoue of heaven and away from tbe dens of evil which infest the city ought to have a mind filled with pure and noble thoughts and ambitions. iV'ben be comes in to contact with the leprosy of evil which issues from the city be should shun it as he would smallpox.

"O boys! you who live in the glorified atmosphere of rural life; who dwell with nature, open your lives and breathe in the intoxicating breath of the clover, and the wild flowers, and the scent of tbe new-mown hay; drink in tbe juice of the rosy-cheeked apples and the purple grapes, as you pluck the fruit from the foliated trees tbe spreading yines, but for tbe sake of your mother, your man hood and your own soul's wel fare breathe not into your life the impure odors from the evil resorts of the teeming cities: and touch not the accursed cup which ruins more lives and wrecks more happy homes than all other influences combined.
