METHODS OF LIVING?

How aiurh la Merely Artltrurj?
Every human being prows tip inshlo a
bheath of custom, which enfold.1 it as the
hwathing clothes en fohl tho infant. The
sacred customs of one's own early home,
how fixed and immutable they appear to
tho child! It surely thinks that all tho
world in all times has proceeded on tho
pa mo lines wlileli Itouml its tiny life. It
regards a broach of theso rules (some of
tliein, at least) us a wild step in tho dark,
leading: to unknown dangers. The elders
have ulwuys said (and. indeed, it seems
only reasonable) that by this time of day
everything has been so "thoroughly worked
over that 1 ho best methods of ordering
our life food, dress, domestic practices,
social habits have loitg ugo Ix-en deter
mined. If no, why these divergences in
tho simplest und most obvious matters?
And then ono thing after another gives
nY- '' he sacred, world wide customs in
wLich we are bred turn out to lo only
tho practices of a small or narrow cate or
tlas.-; or they prove to lx confined to a
very limited locality, und must bo left bo
hind when wo sot out on our travels; or
they belong to tho tenets of a feeblo sect;
ortheyuro just the products of ono ago
in history and no other.
Aro there really no nr.t ur.-il boundaries?
lias not our life anywhere been founded
on reason and necessity, but only on arbi
trary customs? Vliat is more imjKjrtant
than food, yet in what human matter aro
thcro inoro arbitrary divergences of prac
tice? Tho Scotch Highlander flourishes
en oatmeal, which tho English Sheffield
h-on worker would rather starve than cat;
tho fat Miail which the Rinnan country
gentleman onco so prized now crawls un
molested in English or American gardens;
rabbits aro talxMx-d in (Jerniany; frogs are
unspeakable in England; sauerkraut is
detested in France; many races and
gangs of K-oplo nro quite certain they
would die if deprived of meat; others
think spirits of Home kind a necessity,
ylillo toothers again Loth tie-so things
are u alwuiiiuaiio!.
j.M) YF.T, WHY Xm!
Fvery district has its local practices in
fool, and tho Musa!.t3 look with the
greatest suspicion on any new dish, and
can rarely bo induced to adopt It. Though
it lias been abundant lv proved that many
of tho fungi aro excellent eating, such is
tho force of custom that the mushroom
alone is ever publicly recognized, while
curiously enough it is said that in some
other countries where tho eluiu-s of other
Hgancs are allowed the mushroom itst'lf
is not used. Finally, I feel myself (and
ti e gentle reader probably feels t ho same)
iliac 1 would rather dio than subsist on
insects, such is tho deep seated disgust
we exjH'i ior.co toward this class of food
Vet it is notorious that many races of
res pec; able people adopt a diet of this
sort, and only lately a book has lieen pub
lished giving a detail of excellent pioen
ili'r of the kind we habitually overlook
iia.sty morsels of caterpillars and beetles,
and so forth.
Ai.d, indeed, when ono conies to think
of' it, what can it bo but prejudice which
cnijs-s ono to eat tho periwinkle and Re
ject the' land snail, or to prize the lively
(av, nfiUd proscribe' thtj cheerful gra
.o'pr-er?" Why do wo fit on chairs instead
r of ou tho floor, us the !-
4 .o uo, or on
cushions like the Turks? It is custom,
niid perhaps it suits with our other cus
toms. Tho more wo look into our life ar.d
consider the immense variety oi habit In
ovf-ry .'.epartment of it even nnder con
ditions to all appearances exactly similar
r-tho ranre aro we impressed by the ab
sence of any serious necessity in the
forms we ourselves are accustomed to.
Each race, each class, each section of the
population, each unit even. Taunts Its
own habits of life as superior to tho rest,
as the only true and legitimate forms;
and peoples and classes will go to war
with each other in their assertion of their
own special belief and practices, but tho
question that rather presses upon the in
genuous and inquiring mind is whether
nay of s haye got hold of much true life

Italians Not Good Soldiers.
Italians, the veteran diplomatist goes
on to say, may become good diplomatists,
sound jurists and successful merchants,
but they will never bo soldiers in the true
sense of that word. Tako their splendid
poet of ironclads, for example and "mar
shal it in battle array against a French,
English, I-ucsian or German squadron,
commanded by a French, an English, a
Russian or a German admiral, and the dis
aster of Lissa will be rehearsed over again.
Much of this incapacity for successful
military achievement is due .to want of
training on the part of tha odicera. In
Italy t Let-, art ninny military schools that
kre "well attended; but in them, as in the
Utiveroities, there is a fatal lack of sever
ity in the examinations, and once the
student has left school he is never after
ward seen with a book in his hand.
It is for this reason that 'ws find the
officers in command of the Red 'Sea' expe
dition Committing precisely the sauio frr
V'.rt that their predecessors fell into in
iSi'j and lbinl. ihe Italian officer seems
to bo concerned about only one thing the
effect that he is producing on the women
and on the bystanders in general, and 1

Cootl Ailvlcc to Speculator,
Speculation is a business that must be
studied a a specially, and though it li
popularly believed that any man who has
tuoney can speculate, yet the ordinary
inan, without special training in the busi
ness, is liable to make as great a mistake
lu this attempt as the man who thinks he
can act as his own lawyer and who is said
to havo a fool for a client." Tho com
mon delusion that expert knowledge is
not required La speculation has wrecked
many fortunes and reputations in Wall
street, end is still very influential in its
peraicioud end illusory achievements.
Wofesaidnal advice In Wall street, as
In legal affairs, is worth paying for, and
costs far less la the end than the chief
"points" that are distributed profusely
around the street, thick as autumn leaves
In Valiambrosa, and which only allure
the innocent speculator to put bis money
where he is almost certain ta lose it. My
V advice to speculators who wish to make
fabney in Wall street, therefore, is to ig
poro the counsel cf the barroom tippers.'
and "tipplers, " Xmxtx thely backs on
bucket shops." and when they want
"points" to purchase let them go to those
