TRAINING THE LITTLE ONES.
I wcuul say a wonl in Muil of the little oiu-h, the coming nifn anil women; tho advancing j)lialanx which is to leave its impress! on time. I would help to place this coming pmemtion one ht'cp higher thnn the lust that it mny lie loosed from tho trnmels of past ngcH. That its pathway may bo along a broader road, though that road may le but tho lengthening, broadening, brightening of a pathway prepared by intellects who fought the good igbt and laid down their lives, paying only progress R3 their herit age. It is by reaping the benefit of past intelligence that progress in one generation leads to higher progress in each succeeding gener ation. Through the mistakes made in the past many a lesson has been learned, and indeed it is through mistakes alone that new lessons are learned. Seeing this, therefore, and seeing a remedy is needed it it m.ufit bo- looked for far beneath the surface. Let us come to the root of the matter: In times gone by the maxim that "children must be seen and not heard" made them utterly, absolutely subservient to the ruling powers with no say in the matter. Now I suppose some little indig nant soul said to him or herself, "When I'm grown up I won't treat my little children that way. I'm going to "let them do just as they please." Just so a new thought is awak ened, as a pebble thrown into the water ihat widens its circles until lost to the eye. So that little one's declaration of independence, its proclamation of freedom, made its impress and parents and teachers have felt its influence and have been roused to study the best meth ods for guiding this republic of little ones that is in future to form ulate the laws of nations. Children are not reasonable, but reasoning beings and that reason ing faculty should be cultivated from its very first inception. On this subject I speak advisedly. Now the usual way of punishing children, by whipping, is atrocious; it is barbarous, a relic of ages of ignorance. A child treated so grows up in fear, deep rooted fear that blasts i.ts very life. It culti vates a self-consciousness, a fear of w.hat this one or that one will say or think. It leaves no room for freedom of thought. Well, their instructors, be they at home or at school, are not really to blame; they are following in the old ruts. Only a few have cut a new road through an uutrod jungle and found a path leading up to a brighter,, sweeter life. Make companions of your little neSi Make them feel that father, mother, teacher are all with them in interests. Extend always a guid ing and helping hand that the little ones may fearlessly grasp it and they will quickly acknowledge the love prompting the action. Wherever it is possible to do so give them a reason for your demand for obedience. Where it is not possible tell them when they are older they will understand. Stim ulate always to purity of motives and desire for knowledge by plac ing before their minda the sayings and doings of pure men and women. Moral and ethical training may be justly termed tho higher educa tion of man,, for it applies to the development of those qualities which make manhood lovable, he roic, sublime and whick gives to life its. richest; aiaicauee-, ite par psr, rovs-. j Saying this is riot desparnging , Wellectual culture. But intelleet 'tial culture alone can not give hap piness or iuculcate virtue. The greatest scholars, the most purely ulivllechud figures in history have been far from tint happiest men; nor have they been conspicuous for virtue or moral culture. Never admit for one moment that a child is beyond your control. Every human being has a will, and a mighty engine is that will. It is tho bilent inl'uet.eo belonging to each individual. No one will deny that the presence of one person will be very irritating, whilst that of another brings peace and rest, and yet another is like a tonic, bi 'acingasa fresh mountain breeze. Now that inlluence is what par ents and teachers wield ad libitum. If they would only realize it! That wonderful, silent inlluence; that still, small voice so penetrat ing it can till a wholo big room so that each littei child can feel its influence, which it will most surely, and will slowly but surely acknowl edge it. Untiring patience and self-control will make it plainly manifest. Let them see that in reproving you are only seeking their best in terests. Show them to what sad consequences such faults may lead. It may be very discouraging work with many subjects, but one can never tell how much good soil lies beneath a hard crust into which some little seed may penetrate and take root to bear abundant fruit. So let us never despair. Never make them afraid to come to you with all their little troubles. It will save many a heartache in after life. In the home and in the school let each little soul know that it wields a wide influence for good or for evil. 1 would plead, too, that each bo taught that it is a responsible be ing. Many and many a life has been wrecked by reason of having grown to maturity without know ing a sense of responsibility. Join interests with theirs and make them feel that they are as sistants in the home and in the school room. "Busy work" has been found for the school room, so that no child should be allowed to sit idle. When at home let their interests be found in the home, not away from home. Throw some responsibility on each one. This partnership business ia productive of great good to both parties. Let love be our guiding star. A. B. C. WHAT A WOMAN WANTS TO DO. The following has been going the round of the press, and credited to "exchange:" "Onward, roll onward, oh time in thy flight, and make me a woman that's clear out of sight; give me bloomers, the pants and shirts, and let me get out of these horrible skirts. A whisker-producer invent if you can, give me a head that grows bald like a man; grow a to bacco that won't make me sick and teach me to chew, a la man, very quick. Let me, oh, let me drink whisky and swear, bet on the chickens and back the fleet mare. Stay out at night, hold office and vote, take in the town and a six shooter toat; sit on the buzzard roost if I choose, play base ball and wear spiked shoes. Onward, roll onward, oh time quickly fly; make me a man or help me to die. This world as it is fills me with woe, but if I were a man 'twould be a heaven below."

Tho following stury is given in nn exchange: It might bo worth somo of our readers' while to try the sain? experiment. Surely there is aniph opportunity these hard times. A pastor had preached nn eloquent sermon about Heaven. A wealthy member of his church met him tho next day and said: "Doctor, you told us a great many grand and beautiful things about Heaven yesterday, but you didn't tell us when? it is." "Ah," said the pastor, "I am glad of the opportunity of doing so this morning. I have just come from the hill top yonder. In that cot tage is a member of our church. She is sick in bed with fever. Her two little children, are sick in the other bed, and she has not got a bit of coal, or a stick of wood, or' flour, or sugar, or any bread. "Now if you will go down town and buy fifty dollars worth 6f things, nice provisions, and send them to her, and then go and say, 'My sister, I Ihiyo brought you these provisions in the name of our Lord and Savior,' ask for a Bible and rend the twenty-third Psalm, and then get down on your knees and pray if you don't see Heaven before you get through, I'll pay the bill." The next morning he said: "Pastor, I saw Heaven, and I spent fifteen minutes in Heaven as cer tainly as you are listening." THE DUTCHMAN'S LAMENT. Here is another item credited to "exchange:" A Dutchman with moro or less philosophy in his make-up address ed his dog thus: "My dog, you have a schnap. You vas only a dog and I'm a man, but vish I vas you. Effry vay you half the best of it. Yen you vaut to go mit der bed in, you shurst turn 'round free time und lay down. Yen I go mit der bed in, I haf to lock up der blace, und vind up der clock und undress mine self, und my vife wakes up und scholds me, und cler baby cries und I half to vawk him up und down,, then by in by ven I shust get to sleep it's time to get oup again Yen you get oup you strech yourself a coople f times- und scratch a coople of times und you are up. I haf to dress mine self und light der fire, put on der kettle, scharp some mit mine vife already und den maybe I gets some breakfast. You lay 'round all day und haf plenty fun; I hab to vork hard all day und haf trouble plen ty. Ven you die you still haf der best of me. You shust lay still. Yen I die I haf to go to hell yet."
