How Young Minds Take Hold on Great Mys
teries—Some Afraid to Die, Others With
out Snch Fear—The Life That Would
Please and the Death They Would Choose.
The Rivista Italiana di Filosofla con
tains an article by Dr. Marpillero on
children’s ideas of life and death, de
scribing how he questioned a number
of young children on these subjects at
an elementary school at Rovigo and the
answers he received. We quote some of
the most curious. In answering the
luestion, “What is life?” the boys were
much more bold than the girla Many
children, boys, defined life as "a spirit
lhat runs away as soon as we die.” A
hoy of 9 years philosophically observed,
' Life- is a sea of troubles, which one
may cross well or with great uuhappi
uess. ' A boy of 10 said, “Life is a
thing which is never extinguished;”
another. “Life is a good work to eat
well, another, “Life is an invisible
thing, which vanishes when it likes and
never returns ’ A little girl of 10 said,
‘Our lifo is a fluid " A small girl of
poor condition, aged 8, said, “Life is
paradise. ” A very general answer was,
“Life is beautiful,’' or the opposite,
‘Life is ugly. ’ and most of the chil
dren who thought life the last were of
well to do families. To the question,
“What is death?" many replied nega
tively, especially the girls. Very few,
and these only boys, noted the phenom
enon of death, and one gave as answer:
’ Death is a pure spirit The blood dries
up, one neither moves nor feels. ”
Another boy of 8 years gave an an
swer bordering on popular superstition,
Death is a Jming that, when 1 die,
pulls my feet. *’ Another boy of 8 had a
tinge of medical knowledge and replied,
‘Death is when one has more than 42
degrees of fever ” Another said, “Death
is a thing that one never sees again,
never again. 1 To the question, “Are you
afraid of dying?’’ 21 children, all boys
gave no reply; 62, of whom 7 were girls,
replied negatively; all the others—that
is, a large majority—said, "Yes.’’- A
little girl of 10 of well to do parents
gave the answer, “I am not at all afraid
of dying because 1 am tired of living. ”
All the orphans replied in the following
sense, “1 am not afraid of dying because
1 want to see my parents again. ’’ A lit
tle girl of 9 said, “1 am not afraid of
dying because it is a thing sent by
Wod. ” A boy of 12 replied, “I am not
afraid of dying because 1 am healthy
and have no disease. ’’ Another, “lam
uot afraid because I am strong and
healthy ’’ A little girl of 11 said, “1
tear death because it might come at
night and pull my feet. ” Another little
girl said, “1 am afraid of death because
it seems that it is my mother who is
dead. ' A girl of 11, who had evidently
been told some ghastly stories, replied,
“1 am afraid of death because it is so
ugly, and one day Bernard went to bury
a dead person, and it got hold of Bernard
and gave him a kiss. ”
Another boy of 8 said, “I am afraid
of dying because 1 could not play with
my sister any more. ” Another well to
do boy said, “1 am afraid of dying be
cause when one is dead one cannot see
the men gathering the harvest of grapes
and so many nice things. ” A little boy
of 6 answered, “1 fear death because I
shall not be born another time after. ”
The majority of answers to the ques
tion, “Do you want to grow old?” were
in the negative. A well to do little boy
of 9 years answered, “I should not like
to grow old because 1 should have no
strength to work and might die of hun
ger. “
A little girl of 9 said, "No, because I
should have to work hard for my chil
dren, to feed and clothe them. ’’ Many
girls feared to become ugly, saying,
“No, because 1 should be without
teeth, " and, “No, because 1 should be
ugly," or gray, or stooping A little
girl said she would like to grow old
and have grandchildren. A boy said,
• Yes, so that 1 might go to paradise. ”
Another of 10 years said, “Yes, because
1 should have finished almost all my
wishes. *’ When asked, “How would
you like to live?" most of the children
were very modest and did not give way
to fancy
.many poor cnuaren wisnea tnat tney
might live “on broth and bread,” "on
rice,” “on polenta,” or said, "1 don’t
want to suffer cold and hunger. ” A
child of 0, a boy, said, "1 should like
to live with my father and mother.”
Another poor boy of 10 said, “1 should
like to live content in my own home, be
cause then 1 am happy ” Another poor
orphan boy of 10 said, “1 should like to
have enough to live on and go and be
with my father and specially my moth
er, of whom 1 am always thinking. ”
Very few expressed a wish to live in a
class superior to their own, but a boy
of ? said, “1 should like to live without
working and be a gentleman. ” Anoth
er of 6 years replied, “I should like to
live well dressed and have a hat and go
out walking. ” A little girl of 9 said,
"1 should like to live like a lady and
never work and always be served. ” To
the question, “How would you like to
die?" the answers frequently alluded to
family life. A boy of 6 said, “I should
like to die in bed with my mother. ”
One of 10 answered, “I should like to
die at 83 years, with my parents by my
side. ” One boy of 11 would like to die
"with the hope of finding my parents
and brothers and sisters." A boy of 18
said, "1 should like to die all alone,
leaving no brother or any one else on
earth. ” There were some small boys
who wished to die on the field of battle,
and others who did not wish to grow
old because they would have to serve
in the army. Two or three wished to
die and have “a fine funeral. ” One or
two were more religious: “I should like
to die kneeling before God. 1 should
like to die and go with the Lord and
the angels of paradise, with my hands
crossed on my breast ”—London News.
The Peace Commissioner Executed bj

Resistance of a Spanish Garrison.
Reported Heavy Losses si
the Attaching Forces. ,
Havana, Dec. 21.—The official state
ment as to the execution by the insur
gents of Lieutenant Colonel Joaquin
Ruiz, aid-de-camp of Captain General
Blanco, says that he was shot last Fri
day by order of the insurgent com
mander, Alejandro Rodriguez, with the
approval of the Insurgent colonel, Nes
tor Aranguren, whom he went to see ti
induce him to accept the Spanish
scheme for autonomy. The general
opinion here is that it was a barbarou,
A Spanish detachment at Guamo, on
the Cauto river, north of Manzanillo, In
the province of Santiago de Cuba, was
besieged, according to official account
from Nov. 8 to 12 last, and valiantly re
pelled the insurgents. On Nov. 27 i
fierce attack was made on the fort by a
large body of insurgents with two oan
non. More than 150 cannon shots near
ly demolished the fort and destroyed a
factory. Finally the Insurgents got in
side the wire fence around the fort and
called on the garrison to surrender. The
garrison refused to listen to the de
mand, and "with heroic pride continues
the defense” until Dec. 10 last.
The insurgents left 26 killed inside the
wire fence and a quantity of arms and
ammunition, which the garrison used
to prolong its desperate defense. Gen
eral Aldave, while reconnoitering in the
neighborhood, found the bodies of three
other insurgents and many graves.
Heavy Insurgent Loss.
During the siege and the attack on
the fort the insurgents lost, It is offi
cially asserted, 200 killed and wounded.
The garrison had only 6 killed and 31
wounded, but the fort was completely
destroyed, while the garrison was with
out water, with pestilence all around,
and only a little pork for food. General
Blanco will recompense the members of
the garrison for their losses.
General Pando and the column undei
Colonel Bruna, assisted by the gunboats
Dependiente, Luisa, Centionala and
Velazquez, found in the river Cauto
three large torpedoes and also many
small sunken vessels. They destroyed
with dynamite a quantity of the effects
of the insurgents at Cienaga del Buey
and Cayaman.
General Aldave, who left Cauto del
Emboscadero about the same time, had
an engagement on Dec. 8 at Laguna de.
Ytabo, losing 20 killed, among them
2 captains, and 95 wounded, among them
a doctor and two officers. The insur
gents were compelled to abandon theii
trenches and retired with large loss.
While reconnoitering the extensive
zones in that district General Aldave
had one soldier seriously and a captain
slightly wounded.
