Some years ago it struck me as very
strange that, although self-government
is acknowledged by all to bo the very
basis of our republic, it was never
taught in our schools, so that no prac
tical preparation whatsoever was made
for future citizenship, and very little
even of theoretical instruction given in
our gravest duties.
Having determined to try tho experi
ment in my own school, I took advant
age of a recitation in geography one
morning to ask:
" What is the government of this
country we are speaking ofr""
' What is the government of our own

"Yes you are. Your parents have
delegated to me certain powers, and
you must obey my orders as long as
they see lit to leave 3 ou hero."
" Well, sir, we don't like to be any
one's subjects; wo prefer to bo repub
licans." "Do you think yourselves capable of
" Yes. sir."
"Well. I have no objection to trying
you; but we must do so by degrees. 1
bhall try you for one hour iirst."
" What, sir! Won't you mark usnt all
for anything we do?"
" No; al w.-rys provided thai you do not
disturb the business of tho school, for
that must go on."
" Very well, sir."
"A e tried it for an hour, then for two
hours, then for a day, then for a week.
At tho end of tho week I told them I
was very muck gratified with their
powerof sell government, and proposed,
:ls a reward, Uiat wo .should goon Tues
dav alcrnoon to a hook-printing estab

ceived two warnings, and were told
that a third disturbance would cause
tho downfall of their republic. The
warnings were not heeded; a third
came crash wentthe republic, and the
old monarchy rose upon its ruins.
The contrast was disagreeable. The
free republican of a moment ago, who
had been "a law unto himself," w:ts
now a subjected, "cabined, cribbed,
confined," his incomings and his out
goings noted, and all his short-comings
carefully marked. One bright, open
faced youngster soon came up and
" Mr. M , it isn't fair to expect so
much of us on Monday, because it comes
right after Saturday and Sunday, and it
Lukes us some time togctiuto the school
Then you are not to be considered
as capable of self-government unless
you can resist tho intluences of Mondav
as well as of all the other days."
" Yes, sir."
Very well, we will try it again."
They succeeded in governing them
selves for the rest of the week and the
Monday following. We wont to the
publishing establishment and enjoyed
it. Then, however, graver questions
arose. If the boys were to govern
t hem-elves entirely they must decide
about everything, but tho lessons must
be learned and recited, order must be
kept, and the school work must go on.
To satisfy these different ideas it was
agreed that the teachers should be just
as absolute as before; that the boys
should bo marked for conduct and les
sons as before; prompt obedience
should be required and no discussions
allowed during school time; but at re
cess and after school anybody could
appeal from any of tho teachers' de
cisions to a jury of threo bows (thev
were sometimes called judges), one
chosen by himself, one by the teacher
and a third by these two; and from the
decision of theso judges there should
be no appeal. This seemed a hazard
ous experiment, ami it was so. Their
Virtue was not strong enough at first to
resist temptation. The troublesome
boys appealed to have their conduct
marks canceled, and the lazy boys to
have their recitation marks increased.
Their comrades on the juries obeved
their fellow-feeling rather than their
sense of justice. I protested against
many of the decisions as out
rageously unjust, and warned them that
continued injustice would neees?arily
produce the downfall of their whole
system. I submitted, however, to all
the decisions of the juries, waiting pa
tiently for the tide to turn; and ft did
so. 1 had previously prepared their
minds for this by conversations, the

pered to them of their injustice to one
who submitted while ho protested, and
the industrious boys began to see
that the lazy fellows" were getting just
as high marks as themselves, without
the trouble of working for them. My
patient submission was rewarded. The
judges began to decide now in mv fa
vor, and against the lazy ones. When
the latter grumbled I said to them, with
unction: "Protest, if you choose, but
you must submit as I did."
Our experiment succeeded, and for
more than twenty ycrrs my school has

Some very droll scenes have occurred
at these trials, and there have been
some very curious developments of
character. -Ono morning our janitress
reported that one of the boys had been
crying in the playroom on the previous
afternoon because some of the other
scholars had forcibly prevented him
from going home. She did not know
thegoy's name, but pointed him out to
iue. On being asked he said that his
mother had told him to be at home by
a certain time, and some of the boys
had prevented him. As it was contra

I decided that this was not a sufficient
reason for their preventing him from

condemned them all to ono week's ex

as I was near the judges, who-e back's

He laughed, and tho trial went on.
They did convict them, and imposed
the same penalty or dose that I had.
l ought perhaps to explain that I have
tried to get out of the habit of u.sin"
fetich terms as " punishment t or " pen -
alty," and to .substitute for them the
words "doc" or "medicine." A boy
who is "punished" natuially excites
the sympathy of his fellows and is apt
to be looked upon by them as a martyr
who is suffering irom tho same tyranny
to which they are all subject," but a
"sick boy" is rather an object of con-
tempt, and the more rugged and robust
tho boy the greater is usually fits con-
tempt for all .sickness. The effect noon
the culprit himcclf also seems bettor,
ami as I usually consult my patients as
to what is tho best medicine for them,
this, too, may be made a means of self
government." In these trials on some occasions a
small boy has cho-en a big boy as his
"counsel," and the aiftinir of evidence
and cro-s-examination of witnesses has
been done at times with coiisiderabla
skill by embryo lawyers.
One of the first lessons that seems to
be required is that negative proof Ls no
proof at all.
A boy recently said, when three had
testified that they had seen I
.something. "Well, .sir, I can
plenty more that didn t sec me."
Ho appeared quite surprised when I
informed him thai I could bring ten
thousand that had not seen him doit.
As some were still dissatisfied after
tho judges had decided, a second ap
peal was allowed, which, however, was
to bo attended to on Friday (our day
for odds and ends), and in cae of a
reversal a third: nut this has happened
on!' about once in ten y caw.
Some y ears ago a son of mino be
came big enough to go to my .school.
He had been thero but a short time
when he questioned the justice of one
ot in' deeiMons. I explained to mm
verycarefully how just it was, but did
not succeed in convincing him, and was
decidedly startled at hearing him say,
" Papa, can 1 appeal?" I did not think
he knew anything about that part of
our machinery or could appreciate it.
Of course 1 could Hot shirk tho issue, so
I told him to ''pick "out his man." and
I picked out mine. Those two eho-o a

a tooting of perfect equality before this

boy exposed to theso various tempta

restricted sphere, where detection and
its consequent medicine will, if he should
yield to temptation, pretty surely cure
him, so as to prevent his attempting
any such thing in the larger school out

very well. It is what we call ourStand-
All who teach are obliged to meet the
question "What is to bo done in cases
of 'hazing'?" After considerable ob
servation and thought, it seemed best
to intrust tho cure of this to the boys
themselves. They were requested to
vote for three of their number who
should take charge of all such cases. If
a boy complains to a teacher he is
called a tell-tale, and is disgraced. Per
haps ho is thrashed or sent to Coventry.
If lie complains to another boy no sueh
disastrous consequences follow. The
bo.s thus chosen are usually among tho
oldest and strongest in the school, and
therefore able to bring to reason any
Sometimes nothing is known by the
teacher about these cases until he is
requested by the Committee to direct
that a certain pupil shall be detained
after school for a certain time, or ex
cluded from the play-room, or nicdi
cined in some other way. If at any
time a boy does not care to submit to
the decision of the Committee he always
has his right of appeal, which of course
makes the whole affair public. If, also,
any boy should object to our entire
plan of self-government he can at any
time dispense with it and become an
ordinary schoolboy and bo treated as
such. This, however, almost never

Among the grave cases investigated
by this Committee was ono of theft.
The Library Committee found that their
money-box had been visited, and some
of its contents abstracted. This money
was paid by those who chose to use the
library, consisting of some five hundred
volumes, at the rate of hve cents per
week. It was painful to think that any
of our boys should stoop to stealing;
but it was necessary to find him out if
we could. The Committee reported that
their suspicions rested on my errand
boy. and requested permission to watch;
and also to bore two gimlet holes through
a certain door. This was granted, and
the necessary keys were given to them.
The watchers detected the culprit, and
he was quietly dismissed, with a friend
ly warning. "We all, of course, felt
much relieved on finding that none of
our scholars were involved in such an

A Lecturer's Tribulations
Lectukixo frequently tries a man's
soul; especially when the lecturer's
career is not a very successful one. If
his path be strewn with roses and suc
cess there may not bo much of a story
to tell. Hut it is different when his
path is strewn with thorns and he steps
on them. It is sad to hire a hall in a
strange village and wait for an audience
which never conies. It is ominous to
hear your landlord, just before supper,
remark, " Our people don't go much on
looters. Hut they'll pile into a circus

brass-band struck up in the bigger

couples commenced waltzing. It was

they enter the lecture field what trivial
oceurrenees may transpire to upset tho
unfortunate on tho platform and divert
and distract the attention of an audi
ence. Ou one occasion a cat got into a
church where 1 was speaking, and
trotted up and down a course sho had
laid out for herself before the pulpit.
She did this with an erect tail, and at
times made short remarks. It is singu
lar that a single cat acting in this man
ner is more effective in interesting and
amusing an "intelligent audience" than
airy speaker. Under such conditions
Cicero himself would have to knock
under to tho cat. He might go on
talking, but the cat would capture the
house. And then the awful sensation
of being obliged to keep on as though
nothing had disturbed you; to pretend
you don't see such a cat; that you are
not thinking of it; and knowing all tho
while that your audience are getting
their money's worth out of the cat and

landowner of the vicinity. i
This was too much for the wronged i
girl, who moved at once to the village
near which her rival dwelt, and warned
her faithless lover that misfortune
would como to him if he persisted in
wedding his new sweetheart. Accord
ingly, on the day when the Laloi family
and Picart met to draw up the mar
riage contract, Virgiuie, half mad, burst
into tho room where the party was as
sembled, and interrupted the notary,
crying out, "This marriage will never
take place. Never!" Picart remained
A few days later, on the morning of (
tho hist dav of April, 1830, Picart left ,
Vendresse, the village where he lived.

ents for Mademoiselle Laloi. who was !
to accompany him. Not far from his
home he heard a woman's voice calling
him. It was YirgTnie, who ran after
him and overtook him. Her right hand
was concealed beneath her cloak. She
stopped Picatt, and in a supplicating
tone cried: "Is it then true that you
are going to marry her?" 'Yes.''
"Then, shall I never more be anvthing
to you?" He replied by a gesture of
impatience. "It is well." said Vir-!
ginie, after a moment of silence; "Kiss
me." He leaned toward her and em
braced her, and at the same moment
the young girl drejv a revolver, till then
concealed, and fired. The bullet struck
Picart in the left temple, and he fell
dead. Virginie faiuted, and was found
unconscious by the side of the dead
Thea next act in this dismal drama was
in August last, xvhen Virginio was
brought to trial for the homicide. The
prosecution, in accordance with tbvj
method of criminal procedure which is
in use in France, sought to prejudice
the jury against the accused by a great
deal of. indefinite hearsay evidence
bearing on her past life, but not having
anything whatever to do with the
specific crime for xvhich she was on
trial. All this evidence, however.
amounted to nothing, and xvas success
fully controverted by her advocate, the
famous lawyer Lachaud. The conduct
of the defense was not an easy task, as
the prisoner did not attempt to defend
herself, but said in open court: I
should kill Picart again if it was to be
done oyer. I should rather see him dead
than married." Still, the jury were
impressed in her fax-or, and she
would then have been acquitted if the
Court had not lent Itself to a ftrangn

Tiieke is probably no natural phe
nomenon uho.-e effect on the human
mind is more terrible than that of an
earthquake. JLsrariU, its suddenness,
its itthuitc potentialities of destruction.
! its uncontrollable lorco and tho eoin-
plete obscurity of its immediate causes.
1 all combuie to give it that aspect of
' mysterious terror which at one titnu in
vested all the forces of nature. In the
i pre-eiice of an earthquake the
i of men are helple-s, the strongest pow-
erle-s, and all alike are struck with
that awe of nature's power which
marks the rel gion of the savage and
the superstition of ignorant men.
Slight .-hocks of earthquake, tremblings
almost imperceptible of tho soil on
wh.eh wo live, are probably common
enough in mo-t paits of the world. In
agieat city they may often be imdi.s
tinguishablu from the rumbling of a
heavy wagon along the streets, and,
happily, there are main' portions of the
earth's aitrlaco which, if experience
, is anv
juide, may bo
' ed as practically safe from tho
severer and moie destructive forms
of terrestrial convulsion. Hut until wo
know the true cause of earthquakes and
their relation to other terrestrial phe
nomena, it is impossible to set an abso
, lute Hlnit either to the' region of their
t occurrence or to the probable extent of
' their effects. For this reason the .slight-
' est shock of earthquake is as terrible for I
the moment as those gigantic convul
sions, happii rare, which engulf cities
or devastate half a continent
pa-s away and no no more felt, or it
ma be the forerunner of sudden and
vast destruction, from which there is no
escape. When houes are falling and
their walls are rocking and gaping tho
bravest man may be excused if he shares
the panic of h s more timid neighbors.
All men have heard what earthquakes
have done, and none can tell, when the
shock occur--, how soon he may .-hare
the fate of the thirteen millions'of hu
man beings who are said to have per
ished in these convulsions. London
A Famous Hear.
Hl'nti:ils in the Far West sometimes
make the acquaintance of wild animals
which they are able to distinguish from
their fellows for along time. Such a
one was a grizzly bear which a hunter
named Davis often hunted and trapped
in Nevada. Davis says that ho first
got tho bear into a trap in lisG.J. Tho
bear dragged tho trap around a.oung
tamarack tree and tore it to pieces,
although it was a big, strong trap, with
strong iron jaws fourteen inches wide

'gained tho name of Clubfoot. His

bear he ever killed made a track six by l

pounds, and must have weighed 1.0 jO

foot would certainly weigh 1.500 when
he saw him last. He got very gray,
nearly white, at the last. The other
big bear spoken of above was a femalo
and was old Clubfoot's mate. Thev
were always near together. After he
lost her Clubfoot refused all sympathy
or consolation, and was never seen to
associate with his kind again. Davis is
satisfied that he is dead. No one ha3
seen him since 1874. Only barroom
bear hunters claim to have seen him
since that time. In all his old haunts

rcaoh old age than men, but more men
attain remarkable longevity than wom

Horned animals live shorter lives than
those without horns, fierce longer than
timid, and amphibious longer than tho-e
which inhabit the air. i'he voracious
pike exist.-, it is said, to an age of ISO
years; the turtle is good for a hundred
years or more; and among birds -the
golden eagle is known to have lived
nearly 200 years, while the sly and
somber crow reaches the venerable age
of a century. Passing up in the scale
of life to man. and skipping the patri
archs, we t.ml manv recorded instances
of loii"evitv among the classic Greeks
and Romans. Pliny notes that in the
reign of the Emperor Vespasian, in the

and the Po of 100 years and upward,

Coming down to more recent times
the most notable authentic instance of
great age is that of Henrv Jenkins, of
Yorkshire. F:ng.. who died in 1670. Wj
years old. He was a fisherman, and at
the a'e of 100 easilv swam across rapid
rivers. Another historic ca-e is that of
Thomas Parr, of Shropshire, a day-laborer,
who lived to the3geof 152 years
When more than 120 he married his sec
ond wife, and till IM he could swing
the scythe and wield the llail w,th the
best of his fellow laborers- In his 152d
vear Parr went up to London to exhibit
himself to the King. It proved an un
luckv visit, for violating the abstemi
ous habit of a century and a half the
old man feasted so freely on the royal
victuals that he soon "died merely of a
plethora. Oa examination his internal
organs proved to be in excellent condi
tion, and there was no reason why he
should not have lived much longer'save
for this unfortunate taste of royal hos
