Any ono ran tell a gentleman by looking at his back, but it takes clc£o observation to discover by cursory ex amination whether a man in educated ■ or not. By education we do not mean j merely the fact that a man ha* gone through a high school or a college and made the motion of receiving an edu cation. But we refer to that training of the mind which receives and grasps .'acts and understands them in the light of past wisdom. Professor Nicholas Murray Butler of Columbia University. New York, bas given five tules ty which any one may tell an educated man. First. Is tho corrccftess with which ho uses his mother tongue and the pre cision of his idiom. The educated man moves eurriy aiinr/ngrttK* worrra or b’dXT on, Roman and Greek origin as among old friends. Second. Is tho man's manners. Not the veneer that may be put cn or o!T as occasion serves, but tho genuine habit of the tnan himself. Third, Is tho power of reflection. Given an Idea, the educated tnan will throw t:pon the subject tho light of a number of corelated facts that are com pletely beyond the power and ability of the uneducated. Fourth. 13 the power to grow. Un educated minds cer.se to develop at a certain point. They become uon-rc ceptlve. Fifth. Is tho ability to do. Rctirc rront from tho world and contempla tion are no longer signs of education and enllghtonracnt. Tho modern man of education must accomplish things. THIS MAN IS FROM CHICAGO. Going to lotrodnca Monkoyi m Farm Hands In tho South. Paul Kuntz, a Chicago man. who has : extensive interests In the south, is now In Arkansas with a party of northern capitalists, has a plan for the solution of tho labor problem In the south. The remedy, says Mr. Kuntz, lies in the substitution of monkeys for the negro. Thus far Mr. Kuntz's plans only look to the replacing of the negro by a monkey In the cotton-picking season. Ho says he knows monkeys and their capacities, and Is confident that they can be so trained as to mako the most ofllcient kind of cotton-pickers. They can not cnly pick as well, as the negro, but they can pick twice as much In a given time. There arc other ad vantages attendant upon their em ployment. Ono Is that they will not demand wages, and this item will bo an Immense advantage to the planter. Neither will they form labor unions, and the union principle that is gaining a foothold among the negroes Is not encouraged on the big plantations. Mr. Kuntz derives his knowledge of monkeys from observation of them in Africa, of which country he Is a na tive. He is so well satisfied that they can bo trained to do the work in the cotton fields that he now has a large consignment of them on the way from that country, which he proposes to employ on a cotton plantation which he owns. H® says that his experience has demonstrated to hts satisfaction that the ’aonkey can be trained to perform any kind of manual labor re quiring skill and application. Tho work must not be too laborious, as the monkey has not the strength requisite tor heavy labor. ' Growth of llio Fnc:i«h T.an;nnt-o.
