"You sec," he said, "that I make
companion? of my boys, and in govern
ing them I make conipaniohslrp the
basis. I like boys in fact I like noth
ing else so well; and my theory is that
by cultivating "''''. acquaintance j

are thereby enabled to adapt your teach
ing to his peculiarities."
The speaker was amanof letters, well
known iu this city. He has two inter
esting boys, aged respectively eleven
and eight years.
""Suppose you found that one of your
boys had been smoking?"
"Well, a short time ago I told one
of them that so far :is smoking was
concerned I should have no objection
whatever to his smoking, if he thought
best, after he became a man, but that L
should object to his doing so until he
was of age. I explained to him that
the liighcst authorities had decided
thai this practice in youth had stunted
the growth, impaired tho intellectual
and physical forces, and shortened life
by producing or encouraging certain
functional troubles that were by this
habit developed into something else aft
erward. Then he j-aid, 'I shall not
smoke until after I am twenty-one, and
not then if L think it hurts inc.' I
have since found out that vigorous
cH'orls have been made by other boys
to induce him to smoke, without suc
cess." "My boys," 1 observed, "every now
and-then, especially after returning
from Sunday-school, :isk for categoric
information with respect to various the
ological dogmas, which 1 am entirely
unable lo give them. They want to
know if certain things that have been
taught them are true, but in my pres
ent slate of mind I don't know whether
these arc true or not. What is a man
to do? Js he to make agnostics of his
children at once, oris he to be insincere
and a .Mar?"
"I make it a rule," he replied, "nev
er to teach dogmatically anything which
J don't believe. I make it a rule never
lo teach my boj's dogmatically anything
which I don't regard as demonstrable.
I give litem fa-ls. If I don't know
clearly what to think about a matter 1
toll tlicm frankly that I don't know,
and then give them the common teach
ing and my own opinion of it; but I
instruct them that my opinions am by
no means infallible; that opinions rest
upon evidence, and that by and by they
must gather and weigh all such evi
dence for themselves. I talk to a boy
of mine as frankly upon a theological
subject as upon anything else as upon
the question, for instance, whether or
not the City ot lierlin is the largest
steamer that conies lo this port. If he
asked me that question I should say
that I did not know, that I had heard
that the City of lierlin and one or two
others were the largest, but whether
jdic was larger than the others I could
not .say. Then I would tell hint that 1
had a friend who could givejiim exact
information about steamships, and that
I would give him thai friend's address
in case he should wish to obtain detinite
information, lint 1 don't let him think
that 1 know what, in fact, I do not
"But in eases where exact informa
tion is not obtainable? '
" In those cases I tell him that it is
not obtainable, at the same time assur
ing him that 1 ma bo mistaken in the
matter. 1 g'.ve him all the" information
that is accessible, but I never want him
to think that tho subject is exhausted;
and I try to leave the question open for
future discussion, so that his mind is
free to think healthily about the matter
in the future. I don't want him when
ho has grown up ever to look back upon
anything and say: 4My father showed
there a want of respect' for truth.' Fur
ther, I don't want him ever lo get into
his own mind any lack of reverence for
truth from an observation of lack of
such reverence on my part. I want hira
to see that 1 have never told him as
truth anything which was not true, and
that I have never told hira as true
things which I merely had reason to
suppose might bo true."
" Bo's sometimes pick up bad words
from street boys, and the first thing you
know they are ventilating their acqui
sitions upon their nurses or mothers."
"Well, I tell my boj that as a gen
tleman's son ho is under obligations to
himself to be better and deccnter in his
life and habits than the boys in the
street are; and I have explain o'l to him
- that swearing and blackguardism gen
. orally are wholly unworthy of a gentle
man. A boy who has a gentlewoman
for a mother and a gentleman for a
father ought not (I tell him) to act as a
boy would who had been brought up in
"Your boys don't read dime novels
"That is hardly conceivable."
"Because from their earliest child
hood they have always regarded me as
their bestfriend and most intimate con
fidant. They conceal nothing from me,
because they arc not afraid of me."
"Of course, you don't encourage
either of them to'report to you the pec
cadilloes of tho other?"
"No. My whole theory and practice
of education and government with both
my boys lias been to develop manliness
and to set up in their mimls as an ideal
a type of maalv frankness, truthfulness,
courage and puritv. I have discouraged
everything that militated against this,
encouraged everything that worked for
it, and generally in everything I have
done I have given them tho reason in
order that they might understand what
I was trying to make out of them and
work with me to the same end. If one
has not tried it it would surprise him
to discover how readily boys. may. be
made to feel that parental action is dc-
'signed for their good and improvement
and happiness, and how heartily they
will second every effort in that dircc-

("eleven ears old) had a difficulty with

but come down Lewis avenue.' Why?'
said the little fellow. 'Ilccausc that
big boy will be waiting for yuu in tho

not going to be driven from one street
to another. The streets are public. 1
am going to come tho usual way.'
Well,' said his mother. What if hit
attacks yo:t?' I will lay down my

I teach him that it is best not to "come

TiiKsocial use of visiting cards varies
not only with periods and with peoples,
but varies sometimes in the same cit3
ami in the same set, ai in New York,
for example. When oidinary calls are
made, it is customary, of course, as it
has always been, to send in a card by
the servant to announce your name and
presence, and to leave your card, it the
person visited is absent". This is common-sensible,
and all true etiquette is
founded on common Ecnse. But where
many visitors are anticipated, as on
New Year's day, or at general recep
tions, it is expected that cards shall be
left, and they are left in a very irregu
lar manner. It i: natural to hand tho
card to the servant who opens the door,
and most persons would do so at once,
especially when they see the servant
armed with a card tniy. But when the
company is large, and has, been formal
ly invited, it seems superfluous, if hot
absurd, lo precede jourself with a card;
nor is it hupposed that you will.
Nevertheless, it is presumed that
you will drop a card on leaving,
or before leaving, and you com
ply with the fashion whether
you approve it or not. On New Year's
Day, for instance, some servants are
provided with trays, and, oi admitting
you, receive your card. Some of them
carry it into the drawing-room, and .you
instinctively wait in the ha'l until it has
been delivered, for to accompany your
card renders the card redundant.
Aga'n, the servant informsyou that the
ladies are receivin:rt and asks you to
step in, retaining your card, so as lo
make you feel, if 3011 are not familiar
with, or independent of, etiquette, as if
you have made a mistake. At other
places the servant has no tray, and j'ou
arc privileged to leave the card in the
basket, usually Mantling in the hall,
cither going in or coming out. There
is no positive rule on the subject, but it
is generally move convenient or less
awkward to leave the card coming out.
At kettledrums, which cverybo !' pre
tends to dislike, and yet which continue
in vogue, despite numberless manifest
objections to them, the same custom
of leaving cards prevails, and of
leaving them in the same uucertain
way. At evening parties or private re
ceptions cards are never left, although
there is ju-t as rnuch reason for leaving
them there as at kettledrums. The ex
cuse offered for leaving cards on New
Year's, at kettledrums, and general re
ceptions, is that the hostess may know
who has called, or practically accepted
her invitation. But she has the same
cause, and, doubtless, the same desire,
for knowing "on any other social occa
sion. Etiquette is often very fantastic
and finical, but sound etiquette is, we
repeat, so based on common sense that
it lita generally bo divined by a deli
cate instinct. In regard to cards, no
man or woman of fine apprehension or
good breeding would think of leaving a
card at a general assembly of any
kind, unless beforo entering a drawing
room, and this is 'unquestionably ithe
best rule of the best society. Ar. Y.
A Doctor's Mistake.
At some of tho moro primitive Ger
man and Bohemian watering places a
quaint old custom prevails, in virtue of
which the rcsidqut medical or bath doc
tors take up their stations every morn
ing at a fixed hour under particular
trees, on thcloadim'promcnae of
their respective BadcOrt, so that their
patients may make sure of finding them
for consultation or advice at a particu
lar time and in a particular place. A
rood memory for faces is a sine nua
mm to these solis of JEsculapltis who, "
in the height of the season, frequently
interview from fifty to sixty invalids
apiece during theso al fresco receptions.
Mistakes as to1 identity, , however, "will
occur, arid somctimife result in singu
larly comical conipliSatiou. Recently
one of the most popular physfcians at a
crowded Bade Ort was visited under
his tree by an American gentleman, a
recent arrivnl,."who eonip'aincd that the
waters caused him such tcrriblo head
aches that he thought he had better
drop them and depart lo other slimesf
J he doctor, unwilltng,4hn3 promptly to
lose his naticnt, looked him over
hastily, and, perceiving that he .wore. ar
fat sombrero, told him " it was not the
maters that made his head ache, but
that Unconscionably heavy hat" Swift
ly the American betook himself to the
nearest hatter, of whom ho purchased a
straw fabric so light as to bo almost im
ponderable, and went on drinking tho
waters as before. His headaches, how-
ever, growing worse instead of leaving
him, he again called upon the medical
adviser a few days later,' arid, told lfitn
that his head was still so bad that he
really must try some other cure. Tho
doctor, who in the meantime had for
gotten all about his previous prescrip
tions, and was as reluctant as ever to
let his patient depart, again cast aepm
prehensive glance at him, and espying
the'straw hat, exclaimed: - ..

"Smash-ups? Oh. yes, i-cveral of
them. None, however, that couldn't

"There is one incident of my mil-
road life." continued the conductor,
running his tongue carefully over a
broken place in tho wrapper of his
cigar, " that I never spoke of before to

" At about 7::l0, as near as I can re-
member, we were sailing along all com-1
fortablc one evening with a straight
stretch of track ahead for ten or fifteen "
miles, running on time and everybody
feeling tip-top, as overland travelers do ,
who get acquainted with each other
and feel congenial. All at once the train
suddenly slowed down, ran on an old
siding and stopped. !
"Of course. I got out and ran ahead
to the engine to sec what the matter
w:is. Old Antifat, the engineer, had ,
got down and was on the main track t
looking ahead to where, twinkling
along about six or seven miles down
the road, apparently, was the headlight '
of an approaching train'. It' wlis evi
dently 'wild,' for nothing was due that
we knew of al that hour.
"However, we. had been almost
miraculously saved from a frightful
wreck by the engineers watchfulness,
and everybody went forward and shook
old Antifat by the hand and cried and
thanked him till it was the most affect
ing scene for a while that I ever wit
nessed. It was as though wc had
stopped upon the very verge of a bot
tomless chasm, and everybody was
laughing and crying at once, till it was
a kind of a cross between a revival and
"After wc haH waited about half an
hour, I should say, for tho blasted train
to conic up and pass us, and apparent
ly she was no nearer, a cold, clammy
suspicion began to bore itself into the
adamantine shell of my intellect. The
more I thought of it. the more unhappy
I felt. I almost wished that I was
.dead. Cold streaks ran up my back fol
lowed by hot ones. I wanted to go
home. I wanted lo be where the hun
gry, prying eyes of the great, throbbing
work-day world could not sec me.
"I called Antifat one side and said
sometlrng to him. lie swore softly to
himself and kicked the ground, and
looked at tho head-light still glimmer
ing iu the distance. Then he got on
his engine and I yelled All aboard.' In
a few moments we were moving again,
and the general impression was that the
train ahead was siilo-tr.ickcd and wail
ing for us, although there wasn't a side
track within twenty miles, except the
one wc had just left.
"It was never exactly clear to the
passengers where wc passed that wild

Remarkable Indian Co&tiuiies.
Thk graphic art is not unknown, il
appears, to native journalists in India,
for from one of them wo get a most viv
id portraiture of the great nobles who
attended the late dunbar at Lahore.
The puissant Maharajah of Cashmere is
described as looking far younger than
his real age, by reason of his having
" dyed the hair about his face with a
most powerful compound, which also
straightened his features and twisted up
his mustache into parallel lines to his
nose." The scribe adds, rather need
lessly, that the general result was " a
truly formidable aspect." The Nawab
of Bhawalpore has his portrait drawn at
full length. "Dark, slim, awkward,
weak, haggard and dissipated-looking,'
this 3'oung chief wore on his head a
monstrous turban thickly incrusted wilii
gems, " from under which long wisps
of unclean-looking hair escaped on -his
shoulders, and his bloodshot c3'cs, sur
rounded by coatings of black lead,
peered in a forbidding mapner." Not a
pleasant picture, but it may bo as well
to remember that the subject was a
Mohammedan, the painter a Hindu.
Tho old Kajah of Jhcend pleased tho
critic immensely, chielty on account of
"his large, long eyes, with a dignity iu
them." UnforMinatcby, the Kajah is
htout, a personal peculiarity which did
not harmonize with "a very tight kin
cob coat, made tighter still by strings of
massive jewelrj." It thus fell out that
when the old gentleman had to stoop
his head, in accordance- with the pre
scriptions of durbar etiquette, to have
his neck encircled with a splendid neck
lace by the master of the ceremonies,
he could not perform the feat, strive as
he might. The kincob was stout, the
sewing held firmly, the Kajah seemed
likely to be seized with npoplox3', until
the difficulty was surmounted !3 cut
ting the necklace in two and then
throwing it loosely over his shoulders.
He came to the assembly, wc are told,
in a "barouche made of silver, drawn
1)3 four horses, with six elephants bear
ing silver howdahsin attendance." The
Kajah of Nabha was chiouy remarkable
for his "g'001113' ejobrows," and for
beiug tho possessor of "aboard, black,
iuexpressive, though defiant." Ho
seems to have beeti in r, bad temper,
for " his face was as dark as thunder"
throughout the sitting. Of the Newab
of Malar Kotia, the chronicler mentions
that'ho has "a thin, scattered beard
and red teeth," a rather unprepossess
ing combination, we should imagine.
A i.aiv living on Fourth street, who
had been temporarily left at home b3'
her husband, was shocked on going to
her room an evening or two since to
discover what appeared to be a man
stretched prone upon her bed, with-the
cover drawn close about him. Hcrlirst
impulse was to llee, screaming from tho
room, but a second thought came, and
with it nerve enough to put the thought
into execution. The lady stepped noise
1CSSI3 into an adjoining room and armed
herself with a club. Sho returned with
it and touched the object of her fright.
1 here was no sigu of life. She touched
it again, and still harder, but tho object
did not movo. Sho now thought the
man was sleeping, and a third thought
came. Hunyiug in another room the
procured a bottle of chloroform,
saturated a cloth with her drow

It would be well if theatergoers gen

acted in a temporary theater, con
structed of wood, in the camp at
Chalons. Tho house was crammed to
suffocation, when a cry of lire made
itself heard. Instantly- every one rose
and a stampede more" dangerous than
fire would have commenced, when
Canrobert, who was inonoof the boxes
with his wife, cried out in a ringing
voice, "Let every one sta3' in his
place." The soldiers immediately be
came motionless, and tho Marshal re
sumed: "Let every one go out quietty
In order, tho younger soldiers first,
then the older, after them the non-commissioned
officers, then the officers, the
highest to go last" Jn a few minutes,
though it was no false alarm of fire, tho
theater was empty without a single
man's tse "being trodden on. The Mar

made in France with a view to the
substitution of printing types made of
toughened glass in place of those of

The toughened glass is, naturally much

shorten the life and mar the beauty o

It will Vv soon that whetcas theso

one-half the total population of lhi

The greatest gain in population, fur
obvious reasons, is taking placu in the
far West, and when the next censu- is
ready we shall nrobablv find all of ihe.e.
States, with one exception, showing a j
population exceeding 1.000,000 each.
while Ie.aswill be likely to take Us
place among tho six most populous
States of "the Union. Kansas also prom
ises to rival Massachusetts in the num
ber of its itihabitautii. Whereas there
are now nineteen States with a popula
tion of over l.OW.f'OO, there are likely
to bo at least twenty-six in 18D0.
The growth in the popttlat'on of the

inhabitants in cities than any ot

That Is, about one sixth of our popula

large cities. Fifty years ago, including
all cities of 8,000 inhabitants and over,
the proportion was only one-sixteenth.
This increasing teudciH'3 of popula

one of the evils of modern civilization.
It breeds social danger.--, with which

Look stcadity at a bright object, keep
Iho eye immovably on it for a short
time." and then close litem. An image
of the object remains; it becomes in fact
visible to the closed 0313. The vivid
ness and duration of such impressions
vary considerably with ditfeieut indi
viduals, and the power of retaining
them lmiy bo culthntud. I'esides this
sort of retinal image thus impressed,
there is another kind of visual imago
that ma3 be obtained b an effort of
memor. Certain adepts at mental
arithmetic use the "mind's eye' as a
substituto for the slate and jjencil tiy
holding in visual memory pictures of
the ligurcs upon which they are oper
ating, and those of their results. In
m 3'oulhful (htys I was acquainted
with an eccentric old man, who then
lived at Kilburn prion, where he sur
rounded himself with curious old furni
ture reputed tohavoorigiualh belonged
to Cardinal Wolse', and which as I was
told, he bequeathed to the Queen at
his death. He was the then celebrated
but now forgotten " Memory Thomp
son," who iu his earty das was a town
traveler (for a brewety, if I remember
rightty), and who trained himself to the
performance of wonderful feals of eyo
memor. He could close hi eyes aud
picture within him.-elf a prnorama of
Oxford street and other parts of Lon
don, in which picture every inscription
over cvcr3 shop was so perfect and re
liable that he could describe ami certify
to the names and occupations of tho
shop-keeping inhabitants of all tho
houses of these streets at certain dates,
when po5t-olliec directories were not as
they now arc. Although Memor3
Thompson is forgotten, his special
faculty is just now receiving attention,
and it is proposed to especially cultivate
it in eleiuentan- schools by placing ob
jects before the pupils for a given time,
then taking them awa3 and requiring
the pupil to draw them. That such
faculty oxists and may be of great serv
ice is" unquestionable. S3-stcmatic ef
forts to educate it, if successful, will do
good service to the rising generation;
and, even should the proposed training
afford smaller results than its projectors
anticipate, the experiments, if carefully
made and registered, can not fail to im
prove onr knowledge of mental pirysi
