it wa« a careless way to carry money,

they very seldom lone anything. A

out of ten it is lost. It is a mystery to
me why the ladies do Hot lose more

IT must be Admitted thftt the average
writing of Americans is bad. It is
either crabbed and illegible or of a
mechanical character, in which all ia
dividuality is lost and poor instraction
is chiefly responsible for the evil. In
stead «'f improving upon nature, onr
haphazard method pervert* it, with th
result that boys and girls'who might
write well if pro|»erly taught, go
through life carted with a bad chirog
raphy. When legible it it apt to t»e
commoaplaoe and inelegant Penman
ship, therefore, should be a department
of instruction in the public schools upon
which thr greatest care is lies
towed. It
is ft most important branch of education.
The English are good penmen, »s their
ordinary eommerciftl letter show*, and
even the writing of very many English
mechanics is clear and dignified. The
Irish are even better writers, ftnd the
German mercantile hand is qaite ftd
mirable. But with u« the rule is th«
othes w»y. I'suallv the tetter is a
scrawl, or the ehirography is of th*'
oopy-look kind, cheap ftnd poor, ftnd
meehanu-al in appearance. Yet Itittrn
is no reason why Americans should not
be as good writers as other peoples, if
they were scientifically instructed in
youth. An ftocomplishment of great
•aloe aad of practical assistance to sue
cess in life, ia thus negieeted aa aMaa
thing of minor concern.
