Children havo not only a right to the
wisest edueat ion, hut they have a right
to be such by birth and heredity that they
can be educated to so mo purpose. It is
astounding, as one walks through a low
neighborhood, to sco what a vast number
of beads of a truly Inferior sort are be
gotten. Or if you will ride with me up a
back country road you shall find an im
mense preponderance of badly shaped
faces and peaked or pinched brain caps.
There are neighborhoods where this is
not so. Largo heads, well shapen. and
handsomo features are the rule. What
makes the difference? Biology will tell
you tiiat the thoughts of parents and
their emotions in other words, their
habits and habitual feelings shape tha
whild. Not only do sudden frights go to
mark the unborn, but the every day
thoughts and ways of living do the sam2.
Responsibility runs far back, and somo
day tho matter will get a full and popular
discussion. Physicians of Intelligence
understand it. Every one should be made
to understand it. Every child has a
moral right to enter life under at least fa
OVEUWOUKED AND UXDEJIFED.
Overworked and underfed children are
far more common than is supposed. And
this occurs in families above the average
in this country more often than in those
under the average. I do not believe one
half the damage is now being dona by
overworking bodies that is done by over
working brains. The factory for children
under 12 is not 60 dangerous as the school
house. I am now speaking of the echool
house for young children with good brains
and fine nerves that are capable o f very
large attainments. No child should ever
be compelled to undertake book learning
before It is 6 or 7 years of ago. and until
12 ouo hour at a tune is all it should bo
allowed to study. Sot your boy down to
an Interesting book, a story, or whatever
ho enjoys. Let him read it for thrco
hours, and then call him off. You may

tasking of children ikiuiof laws forbid

shortly conio to see that our educating
process needs safeguards for tho children
instructed to it.
It will be well when we come to Her
bert Spencer's idea that real education
shows "in what way to treat the body; in
what way to treat the mind; in what way
to manage our affairs; in what way to
utilize all tho sources of happiness which
nature supplies; how to use all our facul
ties to the greatest advantage to our
solves and to others; how to live com
pletely. " In all these respects the rights
of children extend, and if the state . is
right in Interfering at all to secure com
mon education it is obligated to interfere
to tho extent that will secure for the
child all that a true education involves.
Does our present system cover the case,
or even pretend or purpose to cover It?
Take, for instance, the one item, "How
to treat the body." Is it not a fact that
99 otit of 100 chddren are left to find out
whatever they do find out about the body
and how to use it by stumbling upon facts
through bitter experience of disease and
pain? And when, after a wretched and
miserable career, they die, what is done
to make another generation wiser than
the last? M. Maurice, M. D., in Globe

AN UNUSUAL SIGN.
"MUM Coffins" for the Trade Phane of
the Undertaker' Iluttloewi.
On a cross town street, uot far from
where Seventh avenue begins, is an under
taking establishment, 'lo be sure there
is nothing wonderful about this fact, nor
is there anything particularly noticeable
or out of the way to the averago man who
chances piist, about tho place. For the
office is nothing more than the basement
of a dwelling house converted into a store,
the brick work torn away and a big plate
glass window replaced in Its stead, a trans
formation that may be seen any time on
Fifth avenue or other thoroughfares now
turned into business stroets. But there
was a cardboard sign in the window of
of tho shop that, when I noticed .it, ap
peared very unusual indeed. I read and
re-read it about ten times, and then 1
placed my baud against tho glass to make
sure that it was inside of the pane, for it
struck me that, somo one might have been
playing a practical joke on tho innocent
undertaker. But, uo there was no de
ception about it. Tho four corners of a
square of white bristol board were pasted
to the insido of the glass and on it in
modest black letters was traced: "Misfit
coffins. To the trade only."
I am not naturally inquisitive, but I at
once became curious enough to inquire
what this notice meant, and aceordiugl y I
opened the door and stepped In. In the
rear of the store an elderly man with a
smoothly shaven face, which, together
with LL body, woa about as fat and as
round as a billiard ball, was writing at a
desk. He rose as I closed the door behind
me and nodded a good day.
"I haven't got any business to transact,"
said I, "but 1 would like to ask what is
meant by misfit coffins?''
"Oh, that's easily explained," replied
he, with a merry chuckle. "You see"
here he produced a snufl box from his
pocket, tapped it and took a huge pinch
of the aromatic powder1 "you see, it's
just this way: When un undertaker re
ceives an order ( ! a funeral he goes
around at once and t!;cs a measurement
of the deceased. I t lien orders a casket
from one of the large supply houses for
very few undertakers themselves carry
stock. If an elaborate casket is ordered,
with silver mountings and an engraved
plate, it will nut perhaps be ready
until tho day of tho funeral. Then,
when it is brought around it may
bo found for the first time, and to the
consternation of the undertaker, to be
cither, say too narrow or too short. May
be the body was lengthened out, as they
pccasionally do after death, or, perhaps, it
was enlarged- Again, the undertaker, or
a careless assistant, may have mado a
mistake in taking tho measure. Under
such circumstances therois only one thing
to bo done, and that is to order a new
casket. The undertaker must, of course,
suffer for his own blunder, and the manu
facturer will not take back tho first
coffin. This leaves it upon. hi,s hands,
and, not wishing to carry it and take his
chances of being able to use it at some
future time, ho comes to mo and I pu
chase it at a fair figure, !

Scheme to Get a Seat.
A party of four one fat old lady, her
unmarried daughter, her married daugh
ter and tho latter's 3-year old son
climbed into an uptown bound Broadway
car in New York recently. They began
staring at men in away calculated
to make them pop up, surrender their
seats and kick themselves on receiv
ing no thanks. A simple minded young
man with a smart new fall suit,
sat close to where they stood and busiod
himself looking after their welfare. He
pointed out to the old lady and one daugh
ter where two seats could be had in the
forward part of the car by making some
men squeeze up a little. The women did
not thank him. The men glared at him
and their lips moved - nimbly in silent
swear. Then tho smart young man com
pressed himself narrowly and so discov
ered one seat, to which ho motioned the
mother of the boy.
Did she thank him and sit down? No.
She stared at him in a stony fashion and
then carefully lifted the boy into the seat
so that he knelt at the window, ostensibly
to look out at Broadway's stirring sights.
.The boy's shoes were full of rich, black
mud from the crossing. He had been put
there to act a a petard on the young
man. He wriggled about on his knees,
and the grimy feet waved "perilously near
tha smart fall suit of tho too thoughtful
young man. In less than fifteen seconds
the young man bolted. Ho fled to the
front platform completely crushed. To a
friend who met him there, looking like a
suicide, he said: "I didn't mind being
sworn at by the old chaps in front, who
were- badly squeezed by that fat old wo
man. I didn't even mind squeezing my
self to let the mother and - the boy sit
down. She could easily have carried him
on her knee. But when she sprang that
cold, heartless game on me and used those
muddy boots to pry mo out of my seat, I
began to weaken." . The scheme is ono
that clever mothers have frequently
wprked of. late in crowded cars and it is
