EXAMPLES OF THEIR CURIOUS VIEWS
OF LIFE AND DEATH.
How Ycong Slinda Take Hold on Great Mys
terlta Some Afraid to Die, Others With
out Such Fear The Life That Would
PleaaeaDd the Death They Would Choose.
The Rivista Italiana di Filosofia con
tains an article by Dr. Alarpillero on
childrrn's ideas cf life and death, de
scribing how he questioned a number I
of young children on these subjects at
an elementary school at Rovigo and the
answers he received. We quote some of
tho most curious. In answering the
question. "What is life?" the boys were
much more bold than the girls. Many
children, boys, deliued life as a spirit
that runs away as soon as we die." A
boy of 9 years philosophically observed,
"Life is a sea of troubles, which one
may cross well or with great unhappi
ness." A bey of 10 said, "Life is a
thing which is never extinguished;"
another. "Lifo is a good work to eat
well:" another, "Lifo is an invisible
thing, which vanishes when it likes and
never returns. " A little girl of 10 said
"Our life is a fluid." A small girl of
poor condition, r.ged 8, said, "Life is
paradise. A very general answer was,
"Life is biautiful, " or the opposite,
"Lile is tily, ' and most of the chil
dren who thought life tho last were of
well to do families. To the question,
"What is death.'" many replied nega
tively, especially the girls. Very few,
and tbee only hoys, noted the phenom
enon of death, and one gave as answer.
"Death is a pure spirit The blood dries
np; one neither moves nor feels."
Another boy of 8 years gave an an
swer bordering on popular superstition,
"Death is a thing that, when I dio,
pulls my feet. " Another boy of 8 had a
tinge of medical knowledge and replied,
"Death is when one has more than 42
degrees ot fever " Another said, " Death
is a thing that one never sees again,
never apam. ' To the question. "Are you
afrai.l ot dying?" 21 children, all boys
gave no reply; 02, of whom 7 were girls,
replied negatively; all the others that
is. a largo majority said, "Yes." A
little girl of 10 of well to do parents
gave the answer. "I am not at all afraid
of dying because 1 am tired of living. '
All the orphans replied iu the following
sense. "1 am not afraid of dying because
1 want to see my parents again " A lit
tle cirl of ! 6aid, "1 am not afraid of
dying because it is a thing sent by
God. " A bov ot 12 replied, "1 am not
afraid of dying because 1 am healthy
and have no disease. " Another, "lam
uot afraid because 1 am strong and
healthy " A little girl of 11 said, "1
tear death because it might come at
mpht and pull my feet. " Another little
girl said, "1 am afraid cf death because
it seems that it is my mother who is
dead. " A girl of 11. who had evidently
been told some ghastly stories, replied,
"1 am alraid of death because it is so
ugly, and one day Bernard went to bury
a dead person, and it got hold of Bernard
and pave him a kiss "
Another boy ot 8 said, "I am afraid
of dying because 1 could not play with
my sister any more " Another well to
do boy said. "I am afraid of dying be
cause when one is dead one cannot see
the men gathering the harvest of grapes
and so many nice things. " A little boy
of t answered, "1 fear death because 1
shall not be born another timo after "
The majority of answers to the ques
tion. "Do you want to grow old?" were
in the negative. A well to do little boy
ot D years answered, "1 should not like
to grow old because 1 should have no
strength to work and might dio of hun
A little girl of 9 said. "No, because I
should Jaave to work hard for my chil
dren, to feed and clothe them. " .Many
girls feared to become ugly, saying,
"No, because 1 should be without
teeth," and, "No, because 1 should be
ugly, " or gray, or stooping A little
girl said she would like to grow old
and have grandchildren. A boy said,
Yes. so that 1 might go to paradise. "
Another of 10 years said, "Yes, because
1 should have finished almost all my
wishes. " When asked. "How would
you like to live?" most of the children
were very modest and did not give way
.Many poor children wished that they
might live "on broth and breaa, " "on
rice," "on polenta," or said, "1 don't
want to suffer cold and hunger. " A
child of 6, a boy. said. "1 should like
to live with my lather and mother. '
Another poor boy of 10 said, "I should
like to live coutent in my own home, be
cause then 1 am happy. " Another poor
orphan boy of 10 said. "I should like to
have enough to live on and go and be
with my lather and specially my moth
er, of whom 1 am always thinking. "
Very few expressed a wish to live in a
class superior to their own, but a boy
of 7 said, "I should like to live without
working and be a gentleman. " Anoth
er of ti years replied, "1 should like to
live well dressed and have a hat and go
out walking " A little girl of 9 said,
"1 should like to live like a lady and
never work and always be served. " To
the question, "How would you like to
die?" the answers frequently alluded to
family life. A boy of C said, "I should
like to die in bed with my mother. "
One of 10 answered. "1 should like to
die at S2 years, with my parents by my
side. " One boy of 11 would like to die
"with the liopo of finding my parents
and brothers and sisters." A boy of 13
said, "1 should like to die all alone,
leaving no brother or any one else on
earth. " There were some small boys
who wished to die on the field of battle,
and others who did not wish to grow
old because they would have to serve
in the army Two-or three wished to
ne and have "a hue funeral." One or
two were more rehpious : "JL should like
e ,ne kueelms before God 1 should
to die and po -with th; Ixrd and
- itigels ot paradise, with my hands
i! on mv breast. '" loudou News.

sticks its long tail straight up like a

The wren always roofs her nest,
building a little dome of grass and
entering by an oval hole in the side.
Magpies also prefer a nest with a
ceiling, built roughly of twig?, but
magpies will save themselves trou
ble when possible by adopting an
old crow's nest and rooting it them
selves. Both the willow warbler and
chillthaff roof their nests, generally
building them on the ground and
concealing them dexterously. The
wood wren does likewise. The tree

"Professor," she said, "do tell me
the name of some good piece of clas

"Well, madam," responded the
"lion" of the evening, slightly taken
uback, but retaining his good hu

"1 am glad you mentioned that,

They Knew Their Passengers.
' The student of sociology will find
a good many ot the old New Eng
land ways still enough alive to trav
el on rural trolleys. On one lino in
Boston's suburbs the conductors and
motornien know their passengers.
The other day a conductor excused
his hurry in making change by say
ing he had to "look after Mrs.
Blank, 'oa uso she's lame." Having
helped that lady to reach terra
firma, the conductor resumed the
collection of fares, beginning with
h little girl, of vh---ui he asked,
"How's lather's cold today, Anuiel"
Needless to say that the conductors
r.re "Johns" and "Henrys" to many
of the pations. The lino is well
operated, for the old New England
democracy always knew how to g:t
there on schedule time. Boston
