What Makes a Man? larksnn Times. AVe as a nation believe in schools and educatioiL The vast majority of the children of the nation are in reach of some sort of schools pre senting greater or less advantages, and the white population of the United States are perhaps equal in point of intellect to any other peo ple on earth. There are many good' teachers in our schools, but there are teachers and teachers, and it may well be doubted that the schooling that the mass of the children in tho United States get is calculated to bring out their powers in the great est degree and for the best purpose. There is too much disposition to lose m:ht of tho individual and mergo it into the class. There is nothing that so developes tho mind and character of the child as for the teacher to be able to, in a meas- ure, throw away tne restraints ot formality and dive into the soul of the chihl and bring out and develop its moral as well as its intellectual dualities. It is not merely know ing how to read, write?, and spell it is the character and tone that is given the faculties. The child that would succeed must learn self-reliance, boldness, independence, and individuality. One of the greatest secrets of success is self-denial. In other worths, pleasure must not be a controlling power. Origin of "Calico." St. Lmiix Ololic-Di'liint'ral. The word "calico" has a queer origin. Many centurieo ago the first monarch of the province of Malabar gave to one of his chiefs, as a reward for distinguished ser vices, his sword and all the land within the limit of which a cock crowing at a certain temple coull be heard Prom this circumstance the little town which grew up in the center of this territory was called Calicoda, or tl ie c ck crowing. A f terwards it was called Calicut, nnil( from this place the first cotton goods' were imported' into England, bear ing the name of "calico." . The Ladder of Life. The Need of Good Country Road3. The Census Enumerators. Chicago Inter-Occiin. Every enumerator appointed to make the census is required to take an oath that he will perform his du ties faithfully. They take this oath in light of the fact that if they vio late it in any Particular they are liable to a fine ,.f $3,000 and three years iinprisoi : nt, and the viola tion is punisi. -e by the United States authorities. This means t hat Lno man appoint, i as an enumerator will dare rerun: ,False name on his list The superv or is placed un der the sfone restrictions.

The LaUimore Sun, which is agitating the quei land, points out that th quired to draw a wagon wnighn with its load, 1 ton on a level, twu" adamized road of broken stone 05 pounds, which is increased to 200 pounds on a common dirt road. Professor Ely, of John Hopkins University estimates .that poor roads cost the farmer, on an aver age of 15 per horse, and Professor Jenks, of Knox College, Illinois, argues that with good permanent roads freight could be hauled 10 miles on wagons cheaper than it could be taken 1 mile on a dirt road to a railroad station, unloaded, put on the cars, and carried to its destination. Of the social influ ences of good roads, lie says that "a large part of the mental inspiration of a farmer depends on their abili ty to attend church, lectures, con certs, and social gatherings at a distance ; and really good roads, by enabling them to go as much more easily, would likely raise the whole intellectual tone of the farming community, besides keeping in the healthful influence of the farm many who are now forced into the towns. Suttllicrn I.tmilicrmmi. : , In climbing a ladder we can. as cend one step only by letting go another; so all through life we? can not take one upward step except by letting tr,o the one, we now stand upon. The child must loose his in fantile grace, his winning ways, and something of his innocence, to be- ' come the sturdy, active, inquiring youth ; and the youth in his turn must loose much of his bounding gayety and eager enthusiasm to gain the stability, breadth of view, and power of mature and intelligent manhood. So each specii s of hap piness is gained by resigning some preceding one. The sensualist must give up the pleasure of vice ere he can know the delights of a happy home ; the miser must resign the joy of counting his hoard before he can experience the happiness of a gen erous affection. The scholar gives up ease for knowledge; the philan thropist loses many personal ad- - vantages to find a higher happiness-. in others' good; the patriotic states- V man lets go his private ambitions -; t. 1.:,. i ic .
