The Indian government ha chartered Ave

Tho Houmnnian press renews the ac
cusation against the government of secretly
abetting Russia. The opinion I shared by many
of the people that unless the country receive
a powerful extraneous support, Russia will tuc
cced In her designs In consequence of Internal
dissension. The Russian officer In Bucharest
havo been leased for another six month In
Servls, and the anti-Russian feeling Is said to
be developing great strength In the cabinet,

It I untrue that the Russians again asked per

about the occupation of their oeuntry and the

withdrawn their army nto Little WaHachla,

but It I feared that Kngland may prolong the
present state of uncertainty by abstaining from

What to Teach the Boya.
Alfred L. Sewell, in his new monthly
for boys, "Homo Arta," published in
Chicago, writes oa follows :
A philosopher has said that true edu
cation for boys is to "teach them what
they ought to know when they become
What is it they ought to know, then?
1st. To bo true ; to bo genuine. No
education is worth nnythingtliAtdoosnot
Include this. A man had better not know
how to read, tie had better never learn
a letter in tho alphabet, and bo true and
genuine in intention and in action,
rather than, being learned in nil scien
ces and in nil languages, to bo nt tho
same time f also in heart and counterfeit
in life. , Above all things teach tho
boys that truth is more than riches,
moro than culture, more than earthly
power or position.
-d. To bo pure in thought, language
and Hfo ; pure in mind and body. An
Impure man, young or old, poisoning
tho society whore ho moves, with smut
ty stories and impure examples, is a
moral ulcer, a plague spot, a leper who
ought to bo treated as woro tho lepers
of old, who were banished from society
and compelled to cry unclean, as a
warning to save others from tho pestll
3d. To bo unselfish. To care for the
feelings and comfort of others. To be
polite. To be Just in all dealings with
others. To bo generous, noble aad
manly. This will Include a genuine
reverence for the aged aad things
4th. To be aelf-rellant, and self -helpful,
even from early childhood. To be
Industrious always, ami self-supporting
at tho earliest proper age. Teach, them '
that all houest work is honorable, and
that. an idle, useless life of dependence
on others is disgraceful.
When a boy has learned these four
things; when he has made these ideas a
part of his being, however young ho
may be, however poor or however rich,
ho haa learned some of tho moat import
ant things he ought to know when he
becomes a man. with these four prop
erly mastered, it will bo easy to find all
