EDUCATION FORTY YEARS AGO.
Itlffieullles or Environment in Pioneer

"It is a fortunate thing." said an old
esident tho other day, "that the death of
I)gan has turned public attention to the
school In which ho imbibed the principles
of patriotism and the fundamental idea of
personal integrity. Difficulties thrown in
the way of a boy developed the qualities
that made the stubborn, nggressive and
persistent man. The difficulties of ea
v ironment in pioneer times made of a boy

wheels cut out of a thick nlank. home
jg jn every iiarticular; I remember of
going with this little wagon nan a mue to
where the bark had fallen from the rails
along a fence, and of gathering this bark
and hauling it home to make a light every
night that I might study or read. The
idea that a loy should have a candle by
which to pursue his studies was not
"This handling of the bark was my own
Idea, nnd my own venture entirely. After
supper, or afeer the cooking utensils had
been removed from the big fireplace, I car
ried in my load of bark, and would put
piece after piece on the coals, as needed, to
make light for my reading. I have al
ways felt a sympathy for W. D. Hovvells,
because his old father told mo years ago
that the man who is now the leading nov
elist lu America was in the habit of doing
much the same thing, and that tho most of
the reading nnd study that lifted Hovvells
for his first work in literate re was done
"That was not more than forty or forty
five years ago, and jet in a good many
houses in the farming regie ns of Ohio and
Indiana, to say nothing of Illinois, com

was, of course, at that time no kerosene

with a pitcher sort of a mouth, into which
was put lard or meat irylngs, and a nar
row strip of cotton or linen cloth. Thi i
typical lamp of tho olden times was stud
in a crack between the logs, or hung on a
nail, and if the lard was not too salty it
gave a fair light, but for the purises of

The ice was brought, and the blocks

It was one of the most beautiful sights the

RESULTS OF FALSE EDUCATION.

Neither the boys nor the girls taught (1
won't say educated) in the public school!
want to take hold of actual work for c
living. Very few of the boy s are willing
to learn trades, especially If they are kci4
at school long enptigh to get notions atsjul

or salesmen, or general "clerks" or to Ik

don't want to turn to and learn to lie car

This Is partly why New York Is sw arm

keepers or as conductors on the streel

produced, largely by a false education,
twenty to thirty years ago, and we ar

thousands, to-day to replace them when
they go. As for the girLs, does any on(

month, with good food nnd comfortable
homes, buj the public school girl would
"rather die first" than take employment
of that kind. If actually obliged to earn
her liv ing she will become a "saleslady,''
or learn some light trade, or do copying
or typewriting or telegraphing, neither ol

long run; but hire out in a family alio wil

The chances are that she wants a piano,
too. While going to school she heard
other girls talk of having pianos, and per
hajis some of her friends have these in
struments of torture, and she must alsc
have one. So, may be, a piano is hired
(father or mother could not possibly buy
one) at $5 or t'i a month, and then tin
"parlors must be refurnished, the old
things look so shabby beside the piano,"
and a carpet and sor" s new furniture art
bought on the installment plan, which
means double price, and so it goes on till

Villain, "illth Light Eje and Ilnlr.
"1iy is it tliat stape villains are nlvvays
represented with black eyes, black hair
and fierce black mustaches'" remarked a
ouhr man who has recently returned
from the rowdy west. "I have spent a
couple of years anions the covvliojs of the
plains and I have seen many of the most
noted desperadoes in that frontier country.
It has lieen my observation, and I havo
heard others say the same thing, that these
desperate men are nearly alvas blondes
fellows with light hair, liht mustache

desperate characters I have ever seen were
small in stature and quiet looking. The

which are far more dangtroiis than is gen-
erally considered Is tliere any (xwtne
cure? The Wtl answer to such a question
j is given by those who A.irc been cuinl by
the use of Athlophoros.
E. A. Curry, son of Jlrs. J. H. ( urry, of
j New Paris, Ohio, says. " My mother, prev i
j oils to her use of Athlophorus had been nl-mo-t
a constant sufferer from inliainiiiatory
' rheumatism ol the must acute form. t the
time she commenced with this medicine she
was in a most helpless condition; her sutler
. ing could well be termed torture; she was
confined to her lied formanr weeks, nothing
' we had iloue gave her any relief. Myfalher
was almost discouraged and disheartened
' fearing tliere nev er would lie any relief for

to town, going to Mr Kit liev's ilrug 'tore,
1 he said he must hav c snnitthuig that otild
at least give her relief. Mr. Kicliey spokeof
Athlophoros and told my father !o go and
see Josiali White about his use of it. Mr.
White spoke highly of the medicine and
advised my father to get a liottle and try it,
which lie did. Afler taking a few doses

used two bottles she was upandaroiind and
in a weeks lime she camcuown town. How
long had she lieeii afflicted witli this rheu

would lie Wtterand wnrseatilitTerent times.
How much did she ue in all was asked.
I think aiiout three bottles."

not be bought of the druggist the Athlo

Advice to Mothers.
Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup, for chil

the best female nurses and physicians in
the United States, and has been used for
years with never-failing success by millions

process of teething its value is incalculable.
