eekly Record, VOL. XLVII. PIOCHE, NEVADA, THURSDAY. AUGUST (i. 18J)T NO. 46. THE IDLENESS. LADY COOK, 1166 TENNESSEE CLAFUX.) It ia somewhat singular that amongst a nation so hard-working as the English, idleness and gentil itv should be popularly synonymous. "The hutcher, the baker, the candle stick-maker," and other tradesmen, as well as the upper ranks of busi ness men. generally look forward t the duy-the happy day aa they fond ly dream when they shall hav. made enough money to retire from work and can enjoy their otium cuuj dignitate. There is something nat ural about this. They are then self pensioned. They hare earned th right of repose. They have fougb the battle of life and come off vic torious in a pecuuiary sens Whether they can cast aside thei old habits with ease and find employ ment in new ones, is for their owi consideration only. Anyhow, the are entitled to make the experiment. And were the matter to rest here, little or no mischief would ensue. Unfortunately, however, the suc cess of the parents usually begets h particuliar ambition in the minds o' the children. The daughters desiri to be ladies, the sons to be gentle men. This, of course, would bf praise worthy if connected with a use ful career. When, however, as i toooftenthecase.it means simplj to live an idle life, squatting lazilv upon the hardearned fortunes of their fathers, it becomes a calamity for all concerned. But when it also leads them to be ashamed of their origin, and of the honest method by which their affluence has been secured, it is little short of depravity mean, despicable, repulsive. Such false views of life an 1 of what is becoming, must needs lead to dis aster. Because, to make up for want of birth or breeding, they launch out into vulgar extravagance, endeavoring to dazzle where they cannot convince. Yachts, races and hounds, expensive establish ments, gambling and voluptuous living, are a few of the means by which the carefully gathered wealth of successful merchants or profes tsional men is dissipated by their heirs. Very few of these care to walk in the steps of their fathers, or to engage in the occupations whicli made them rich. And probably the first lessons in wild expenditure on the part of these prodigal sons were learnt at our Universities, where, for a long period, generations of vain or weak-minded youth have been hopelessly corrupted. It is sad to reflect how often the methods by which a successful man endeavors to advance the po sition of his children become the means of their ruin. He reflects, it may be, on his own scanty educa tion or other disadvantages in early life, and determines that his sons shall fare better. They shall go to some great Public Shool, or to Ox ford or Cambridge. They shall learn all that may be learnt in these homes of the Moses. They shall mix with gentlemen and noblemen, make superior acquaintances, and catch their tone. And, that they may not be prejudiced by his status, he supplies them most liberally with pocket-money, and encourages them to shine in the display of wealth. After a long course, during which parental hopes have been excited, they often return to the old roof with only a thin veneer of scholastic acquirements, but deeply engrain ed with all the vices which, it is well known, these seminaries are able to teach. Their ostentation while .there was secretly ridiculed by their companions; their morals are ruined, and they come back with appetites whetted for profligacy, despising business, averse to usual occupations and impatient of their family and home surroundings. In those cases, however, where these evils have been minimised or even avoided, where they have real ly studied and their habits and con duct have been fairly decent, they are still as averse as the former to the occupations of their parents, and are occassonally promoted to endea vor to distinguish themselves in fash ionable society. This is often very difficult. Nevertheless, youth, money, and preseverance, can accomplish much in time. And if they succeed, what is the result? A more repu table mode of squandering than that of others, but a life of greater useless ness. And the mistakes of both classes arise through the fault of the parents. Tor all true education beings at home. Correct habits and thoughts must not only originate there, but must there be quickened into activ ity and be trained to steady discip line. Aa the tree ia, so are its fruits; and as the home is, so are its chil dren. In an atmosphere of honour they will bo honourable-surrounded by deceit they will be deceitful. Where wealth ia worshipped they will bow also. Where idleness ia tolerated they will despise work. It ia worse than vain-it is criminalto send youths with unformed charac ters into great schools and colleges, and expect them to profit by the ex perience. Nothing less than deeply rooted sentiments of purity, and habits strong from duly use and lorrect from conviction, can enable hem to escape the contamination nseparable from these establiah nents.

Ha is worse off than f he had never been, for he ne tlects the opportunities which God nd his age have given hiin. The Id proverbs sty: "Idleness and ust are sworn friends"; "Idle men ire the devil's piny fellows"; "IJle less is the greatest prodigality in he world." The moralists from iolomon to Dr. Watts, have not nly vented their strictures on idle iess, but on sluggishness as well. To be dilutory or perfunctory is to ie partially idle. To be improvi lent is the same. We are invited to consult Nature and imitate her foresight. And "whatsoever thy hand findeth to do," said the Preach er, "do it with thy might." Idle and addle have the same neaning, and, with ail, are derived from the same word, which signifi dd to be sick, corrupt, void. An idle person is an ailing person, sick in body or mind, corrupt in morals, void in understanding. An idle life is an addled life, nexious, un productive, and dead to all good uess. Yet this is the life which so many covet and othera are proud to possess, and this is the individual who is allowed precedence over the industrious. "Nature fits all her children with something to do," said the poet, md truly there is so much to be done in the world- physically, mentally, morally that it befits none to be idle. There are Augean stab les to be cleansed,- ancient and mighty wrongs t- bo rectified, grave lbuses to be redressed, and dense clouds of ignorance to be dispelled. The world mourns for waut, and misery, and crime, and "the dark places of the earth are full of cruel ty." Power and injustice trample upon the weak and the innocent. Nation is armed against nation, and "a man's foes are they of his own household." Poverty prays in vain for its dailr bread. We see tne m- iustrious idle from compulsion, and the wicked criminal from want of nowledge. Our boasted brother hood is a poetic dream. Each fights for his own hand, regardless if others, and the end no man can foresee. So nitny worlds ) luaih to do, So U tU doue, su-H things to be. surely humanity requires the best efforts of all its members. Ibis is no place for idlers or lovers of false gentility. There is work to be done, serious, patient, and persistent work, not the service of the slave, but the cheerful lubour of the free man full of loving kindness. The world is still young, and noble duties lie before it. As it grows wiser it will grow happier, until love supplant selfishness and becomes the univers al law of its being. As Tennyson sweetly sang the Great Worker :- Oar little eysteius have tbeir d y; They hev tueir day aad cee to bi: They ere bat broten llg t -A T bee, And Thou, O Lord, rt more tain tney, Wehave but faith: we cannot know: For know! dge Is of things we nee; And yet we trust It comes from Thee, A beam In darkuesa: lot it gro"r.

The act pnssed by the last legisla ture authorizing the killing of wild horses throughout the state, has de veloped a profitable industry ia the northern part of the state and camps of hunters have been established at all of the springs and water courses where the bands resort. The hides sell for two dollars each and the hair of the manes and tails brir j fifteen cents a pound. Can the Ethiopian change his ekiu? Yes. It only remain, to be ascertained juet how to apply the current of elec tricity. Prof. Lucien Wake, of the chair of electro-chemistry of the Kan sas university, caid in. a recent lecture that the negro owes his color to a car bon pigment in the tissues of the skin. "If a current of electricity be sent through the tuieuea of the. body that contain moisture," continued the pro fessor, "as all tissue of the body do, the tendency of ,the current is to de compose and transport certain of the elements that make up those tissues and liquids. Gold and silver and all the rurtals are deposited out of their solution by currents of electricity in this way in the arts. If it can be found that a current of electricity will thus transport carbon out. of it pigment layer, aa found in the negro, than this pipment will lose its block color." Whether this carbon can thus be re moved will have to be made the subject of. experiments. Frof. Blake was asked how he would po about making an experiment of this kind, but he refuted to give the information, saying he does not care to earn the reputation of being a sensationalist. He does not doubt that the result could be accomplished. "There is a process in common use in dentistry," he said, "known as 'cat aphorcsis,' by whichsubstawes are car ried liodily by n current of electricity. For instance, cocaine is transported nlong a nerve of the tooth, with the re sult that the nerve is me.de temporarily insensible to pain. Now, if by this proeesa of oaUi phoresis, some substunce id lie conveyed beneath the nearro s epm: -nis to act upon the pigment, dis solve . 1 remove it, the dVsired result would be accomplished. "Another way might be to place t!he candidate for a white skin in a ooinmon water Imth, insert one pole of tli bat tery in the water, and place the otter upon the negro's body. A mild current of elcctrii-itv would then diffuse itself equally over the subject's body. Hut the point of making it remove the. ear- lion without destroying the tissue would have to he determined by careful ex periment. "You would tie surprised, said l'rof. Bloke, "to know how many letters I have received from colored people late ly. You will reroendHT that ist the course of a recent, lecture in,KnsaH City 1 said that I believed that by the:ip plication of nn electric current t he pig ment which (risen to the negro hi black skin could be dsoniiosed and that the skin would become white. I think that I must have hart 50 letters since then from negroes who would like to change color "Are the letters from men or wom en?" "Well, principally, I thlink, from men but I have had several from women." "What Is the general tenor of the let' ters?" "All of the writers express a great de sire to be white, but they are particular to &ay thait they do not want to be physically injured by the process. One pill wrote a very funny letter. She said that she would be perfectly witl ing to have me experiment upon her. if I would guarantee not to spoil her hmutv. Not beinp conversant with the lady's particular style of beauty I am unable to say whether or not it would be damaged by the operation. "Are the letters all signed?" "The jrreater Dart of them are, but some are anonymous. Many of the productions are humorous in the ex treme, but there is no doubt of the eurnestuess of the writers. They have a consuming desire to be covered with Caucasian skin." "Have you accepted the offer of any of the applicants who are willing to be come the subjects of the experiment?" "Not vet. But I hope to begin some experiments when I shall have coin- Dieted mv lectures here, ion unuer stand that I do not state positively that this thing can 1 successfully mid harmlessly done. While I believe tint the color can be removed, tlie f" miu-Vit. have some undesirable eli. ; t mi some of the other tissues of tire bxv That is a thing which I should have to investigate more fully before I shoutu be willing to enter on an experiment. "Would jou experiment upon the en tire body at once? "No. I should start on ono member an arm. for instance. I could soon determine whether or not there would be any ill effect from the process, and the subiect would be perfectly safe. If (the plan worked we 1, I count men tal;p m the rust of the 1kx.1v."

It flew in to a knife and bar factory, and, getting too near a small wheel, was sucked in, The workingmen noticed it go into the wheel, but knowing that the cylinder was revolving at a speed of 130 revoiiv tions a minute, took it for granted that the bird had been killed.

SKwraNC D COUNTY OFFICERS A graceful custom among foreign diplomats at Washington is the auction sale which frequently befalls on the oc casion of the recall of one of our alien ambassadors or minister. They don't allways come off, of course. Sometimes, as was the case when Fva he's back here, i now went home. there was no auotioo of legation effects to mark the great event, as there mi in that eminent Italian's case no lega tion effects. Nor was it true when the recent Turk set sail. But he, poor Mus sulmon, was so threatened in his per turbed mind with immolation so soon as he should arrive at Constantinople, so sure that it was a case of the bow string and the Bosporus in his busi ness, that he had no heart for commerce. But, aside from these, the other three "diplomats" who have lately returned from here hung out the red flag of trade, hired some local chanter to cry the wiares and had " sale," The Austrian was the last to do this. This is the system: For two weeks before their excel lencies decamp the local papers revel in a long and lurid "ad.," recounting the recall of the ambassador or minister, and declaring how on a certain day all people bo minded are invited to appear and conteen at public vendue for a dazzling list of plunder in said "d." set forth. Prime among fhe properties for sale you will notice wines and many a thing besides that are as articles of com merce highly tariffed. But in these cases courtesy has heild the tai.u' ..t bay. All of a legation's winea and cigars ami furniture m met, every thing of a personal sort of that a lega tion causes to be brought to America is iiassed scot free at our custuiui. O.-e will readily dilst'ern that a ripe ;iroflt might be made to roll pleasingly at one of these untianffed hgiitum sales. (!ur town tradespeople must. nvt'ver, pay the fiddlr in twh noble i'.H'.L'l'. Vi them- sales snobdom turns stoutly ut. The bidding is hxt and fast and igh. There Is nothing to be lusted for by a cer'tta.'n sort of American, cringing ly iv.'m"rmiB hereabouts, e a wine V-h has been justified by an ambas- ovial tnstc, ora piece of furniture or -a-brae which has been Boiled by noble and titled contact. And therefore 'aese legation auctions furnish the most healred combats, And many a fool fleeced. ; It is also to be remarked that these ales string out n endless fashion, day following day, as fools flock to be bun- oed. The stock, whether of wine or umiture or cast-off noble garments. never rims low. The widow s store of oil showed no better staj'ing powers. As long ns custom hangs (about the chanters shout, the red flag floats and the stock of goods to be dtisiposed of flows by with current unabated. For, mark you, rather than disap point or send any full-heairted alien hti6er away from this sole with aching heart nnd empty hands, the auctioneer each night moves m a new stock to re place the disappearances of the day be fore. Much morning the legntion rooms are un stripped, tihe cabinets as full of hric-a-rac, the bins as replete witn rare old wiines as at the beginning. Thus art. runs forward until no more sheep appear to he shorn and even the tondies hove enough. Then the flag comes down and the legation sale is at an end. N. Y. Jourwal.
