THE USE OF PUBLIC GARDENS.
They Would Tend to Decrease the In
mates of the Reformatories*
Children often become criminals be
cause they have no outlet for doing what
Ihey like and what i.s proper for them to
do. All children love to work in gar
dens and if there were public gardens
where children could voluntarily work it'
they wanted to there would be no occa

None know better than those who have
interested themselves in reformatories
what are their w'eak points. However
well treated, the inmates feel as prisoners,
and there is the difficulty of placing them
lor a start in the world when the refor
matory term expires—a difficulty growing
more serious every day. Aside from this
is the enormous tax on the community in
the way of private benevolence or public
charges. None would welcome an im
proved method of lessening these pres
sures more than reformatory managers.
Public gardens, as suggested, would
help to some extent—but they have not

"The Spectator" of the Outlook recent

these comments upon the Concord celebri

the site of the hut at Walden pond, he
commented: "Well, Thoreau raised
beans, and when he got hungry he cut
across lots to his mother's and filled up
on her doughnuts, and then bragged how
cheap he lived." Of Emerson the citizen
made an exception, having no flippant
comment to pass, and entertaining the
profoundest respect for his uncommon
sense, which enabled him always to have
at hand the means to help the less for
tunate celebrities, "for they all 'came
down' on him, sir." And this reminds
"The Spectator" of the story Whipple
tells: "The train, as usual, stopped at
Concord. Then one of two silent Yan

SINGING SANDS OF ARABIA.
Sinjrular Natural Phenomena that
Are the Wonder of Travelers.
The singing sands of Arabia are
stretches of sand, sometimes on a hill
the interior, which, when moved,
produce a distinct musical note. Walk
ing through them, stirring them with a
stick, or in any way agitating their par
ticles will cause the sound, which con
tinues some seconds. Scientific men have
been quite at a loss to account for so
singular a phenomenon and have sug
gested many wild explanations. The
problem is complicated by several curi
ous circumstances in connection with
*t»e sand. It has been .ascertained, for
instance, that if carried away in bags
the sand loses its musical power, hut re
tains it if. transported in glass vessels.
Wetting the sand while in an artificial
receptacle destroys its power of produc
ing tone, but rain has no such effect,
since as soon as the sand is dry it is as
sonorous as before. The singing sand is
found in no less than twenty-six places
on ti eastern coast of the United States
and in at least two on the Pacific.
