STICK TO THE FAIUT.
An Open letter to a Farmer' Hoy.
Mv Deak James: You ask me for
Bonn; advice as to your future work in
life. You May that you arc dissatisfied
with the prospect of hem;; a hard-working
farmer all your days, hutatthcbamc
time you do not consider yuiirelf a
cnins, and do not expect tobecome a
Stewart or a Vnndcrhiit, or to ncquin; a
vast fortune hy (peculation. You ex
pect to work for 5'ow living; hut you
think there may he some pursuit which
would he equally remunerative and not
so laborious and monotonous as the
farmer's. You ask if it would not he
better for you to heroine a " lir.st-chihs
mechanic- than to he a farmer.
This is an important question, not
nlonetoyou, hut to many other hoys
who take a serious view of life; whose
common scn.e gives them a fairly cor
rect estimate of their own powers and
capabilities, and who wish to learn a
business for which they are adapted,
which will give them fair wages, a rea
sonable amount of leisure, and a re
bpectable position in life.
Now, it is a curious fact that workers
in almost ever' branch of industry take
u gloomy view of their own business,
think almost everybody else is better ofl
than they are, and generally try to dis
courage others from entering their vo
cation. The farmer and mechanic are
nlout equally ready to say: "Our busi
ness is going to the dogs. If I were a
young man I. should learn something
else." Sometimes they do this from the
sellish desire to keep 'down the supply
of workers in their own line, in order
that the. demand for them may be great
er; sometimes from the habit of judging
other occupations by the standard of
their most successful men.
Hut the fact remains, in spite of this
almost universal disparagement of their
own pursuit.", among workingmen. that
nome occupations are more, some less,
desirable than others; and I shall try to
give a few reasons for thinking that a
farmer's boy, unless he has a decided
bent for mechanical pursuits, such as
will uuiekly take him into that "upper
story " where there is always plenty of
room and recompense, had better
"stick to the farm'
First, the farmer has the priceless
boon of independence. He is his own
employer. He comes and goes when
ho pleases, not when another man
pleases. He is responsible to no ono
but himself. He is captain on his own
ship. No matter if ho only has a pota
to patch from which to get his living, he
is master of that potato patch; his rule
there is none to dispute in his workshop.
His prosperity depends on his own
thrift and enterprise, not upon thepros-
Iwrity and liberality of an employer.
Ic asks no man what he shall do or
how he shall tlo it, except as a matter
of advice. He "cares no more for Lord
James Douglas than Lord James Doug
las cares for him." He is a man among
men, sovereign in his own domain. The
man who owns and cultivates his little
5iece of ground can snap his fingers at
Hr. Lofty, and sit on his fence with his
hands in his pockets when the Great
Mogul goes by; lor he is getting his liv-ing-at
tirst hand, and need ask no fa
vors of anyone. The average mechanic,
on the other hand, is little more than a
hired serf while he remains a mechanic:
he surrenders his individual liberty to
his employer for his wages, and works
througlfanother man's brains; he is an
automaton manipulated by the golden
wires of capital. He learns to gauge
his work by what is required of him, not
by the standard of intelligent and con
Kcicntious service. Unless he is an ex
ceptional case, his self-respect is un
dermined by the temptation to " loaf'
while the "boss" is not looking, and to
work industriously under his eve. He
becomes a school-boy instead of a man;
learns to look furtively- and fearfully at
his employer, and bridles his manhood
through the necessity of pleasing ujm or
losing his work. The mechanic is a
subordinate in his department: the
fanner is chief officer in his; and it is
better to be captain of a canal-boat and
preserve your independence, than to be
second-mate on the Great Eastern and
.have no mind of your own.
Secondly, the farmer has health; or
the means of getting it free of cost if
he does not possess it. His business as
sures him, in larger measure than al
mostany other, nature's grand con
servers of health air ana exercise.
These are better tonics than any which
grointo people's stomachs. City pa
tients get them after paying for a doc
tor's prescription, but to the farmer
they come "as free as air.1' Better
than any one else the farmer can com

The farmer is free from maay of the
immfmmmt wbicb beset worioBgmea
whose occupations bring maay men
into de aesociatkm. The seductions
of thn Unm nhop iirrl of fast society do
aot appeal to aim as they do to the

Statistics uhow that farmers live longer
than men in any other pursuit except
Washington's body-fterratst. The farm
er can look forward to an earthly ex
istence longer by several years than
that of the blacksmith, the "carpenter,
the machinist, the mason, the printer,
or any other artinan. and as long a
that of the average professional man.
Third, the farmer has the means of
obtaining mental culture if he ha the.
will. The diatifactiun with which
many farmer- and farmers' boys look
upon their lot in life comes from their
hating too much hard work and too
little spare time. They have not yet
learned to adapt thrme!ve.s to the mod
ern ten-hour law of labor. They toil
fourteen or sixteen hours a day. and
come home from their work utterly ex
hausted and lit for nothing but supper
and lwd. They feel dicouragcd and
disheartened at'stich a pn-n:et through
life Overwork is the thief that steals
the farmers' happiness. Hut it ought
not to be so. A farm can 1m; made
to pay on the ten-hour plan, f have in
mind a fanner ho makes his farm
pay a good dividend, takes an active
interest in the world's work, has a fair
library, keeps abreast of the thought of
the age. spends his evenings in reading
and writing, is teaching his sons the
value of study and work combined, and
does all this" on ten hour-.' daily work.
It is not the amount of labor that we
put into a thing that determines tin; re
sult, it is the intelligence. The King
of Spain, you have no doubt read, spent
a day in trying to stand an r on end;
Columbus "did it for him in a second.
An hour spent in thinking out a new
way will often accomplish more than
fifteen spent in working in the
old way. Fanning requires enter
prise and thought quite as much as any
other business; and fresh plans cannot
come from a weary brain. Ten hours
spent in work and two hours spent in
study, with a mind quickened by mod
crate physical exercise instead of ex
hausted Iby over-exertion, will achieve
vastly more than twelve hours of un
ceasing manual labor. Make no mis
take. When a fann is managed in this
way the farmer can devote his evenings
to study and to rational enjoyment far
more effectively than the mechanic, for
he is isolated from the distractions
which usually surround the latter. Much
'pi the. farmer's work, too, does not re
quire the constant straining of the atten
tion which many mechanical pursuits
demand, and he lias opportunity for re
flection while promoting his business in
terests. So, my boy, if you wish to be manly,
self-reliant and independent; if you wish
to be your own employer and your own
master; if you wish to make a fair liv
ing independently of another's caprice:
if you wish to lay a solid foundation ol
health on which to build your career:
if 3'ou wish to avoid the temptations
into which so many artisans sink year
after year; if you wish to elevate your
mind, broaden your sympathies, and
deepen your understanding by study,
reflection and association with those
who will help, not hinder, you in these
things; in a word, if you wish to bo
" Healthy, wealthy and wise,"
my advice to you is, Stick to the farm.

Education in Japan.
Among the treasures of the Ilurcnuof
Education is an exhibit of Japanese ed
ucational progress. This exhibit is es
pecially valuable in giving the old meth
ods of teaching in eontrastwiththenew.
and as marking the facility with which
the Japanese intellect grapples with the
scientific truths of the most advanced
civilization. The history of this exhib
it is rather an interesting one. When
the first Embassy of Japanese came to
this country tiny called on the Commis
sioner and made inquiries into the work
ings of his department. Not satisfied
with examining tho department itself,
they came day after day propounding
questions which showed "not only a deep
interest in the matter, but a most intel
ligent conception of the merits and the
importance of the American education
al system. The information they re
ceived was carefully digested and sent
back to Japan, and the prominent part
the educational business had played in
the very extraordinary social and polit
ical revolution which tho country went
through was shown in the exhibit sent
to the Centennial. At the close of tho
latter the Japanese authorities begged
the acceptance of this exhibit by the
Bureau of Education. The old-fashioned
school-house in Japan, as illus
trated by a painting, was a bare room
with no'desk but tho low stand in front
of tho teacher and another on his side
to place books on. The teacher squat
ted on the floor. So did tho pupils.
The teacher read aloud, and the pupils
repeated after him. To memorize was
tho alpha and omega of Japanese school
Tho new-fashioned school-house in
Japan, as illustrated by drawings and
engravings, is generally a handsome
building, often a temple whose worship
has ceased and whose devotees are dead.
The teacher has a desk modeled after
the American style, placed on a plat
form, and garnished like the New Eng
land preceptor's. The desks and seats
of the pupils are fashioned after the
same pattern. In Japan they write
with a bnish instead of a pen, and make
their ink by triturating hard paints
against a prepared stone. The ineradi
cable instinct of the people to draw ex
plains the universal use of tho brush,
and their constant practice from time
immemorial gives the secret of their
wonderful skill with color. In the ex
hibit arc specimens of machinery, sur
gical and mathematical tools, "educa
tional appliances, and various kinds of
mechanism required by modern sciences.
There are Japanese copies from Occi
dental models ; but they are not slavish
imitators merely. Their intelligence
is shown in the frequency with
which thev adapt their own orijrinal
devices to American machines, always
improving on the model. Among others
is a school globe. This is a wire frame
covered with linen, on which is painted
the natural objects to be studied. The
destmction of this globe docs not in
volve the great outlay for a new one
which our costly globes would make
necessary in the event of destmction.
Again, they adapt an angle measure to
a snirit or "water level, thus killing two
birds with one stone. In the exhibit is
a model of a Japanese house. This
has become disarranged, and no native
mechanic has been found skillful
enough to mend it. In the narrow lim
its of two small rooms are thus shown
the progress of centuries whieh really
was consummated in a few years. Yes
terday the feudalism of he Dattaio
regime exhibits its medi:cval tenden
cies, usages and spirit; to day the same
"actors are manifesting the temper and
the tastes and exhibiting thorough fa
miliarity with the customs of the ptcs
cnt age. The exhibit is complete in
every respect, and is one of the most in
teresting and suggestive collections

the boy who could perform the
whistling in all known stlcs!
How we lioys used to stare wonder
ingly and with admiration as the cham
pion whistled with four lingers tilling
his mouth, with tno lingers, with any
one linger and even with the thumb and
in each instance causing a hrill shriek
loud enough to be heard half a mile
away. Then with what a patronising
air the champion would sink his skill to
indulgence in the ordinary lip-whi.stle
or the almost as common and very
ionorous doubled-tist-whistle, to again
jump with bewildering brilliancy to that
chef d'uMivre of sillleiueut thetongue-and-teeth
It is surprising how many are the
moods indicated unmistakably by n
boy's whistle. There is the whistle in
whieh the head is held erect, the eyes

particular, the lips show the utmost
muscular contraction, ilie di.stended
cheeks prove total indifference to ap
pearances and the noise, a strain most
monotonous, because it ends in the
wrong place, only to again take up the
first note and give a repetition to the
erratic finale over and over again,
totally oblivious to all surroundings.
Then there is the disconnected whistle,
doubtful, often false, and generally ac
companied by a slow pace, a hanging
head and a general indication of regret
and unwillingness to do anything but
whistle. Again there is the "boy, often
grown to manhood, who does not know
one nptc from another, yet who insists
on whistling constantly, in a hopeless
effort to catch a tune "which he heard
the band play at tho county' fair.

Where is the boy who has not often
"whistled aloud to keep his courage

It is only among boys that whistling
becomes a fine art, and it is often aston
ishing to observe the perfection which
some of the artists attain. A hundred
boys will attend the production of a
new opera, and the next day fifty of
those boys will bo heard whist
ling selections from .that opera,
each one having chosen the air which
most pleased him. In this way have
the reputations of song-writers been
made. Fritz Emmett's "Lullaby,"
Willian Scanlan's " Peek-a-Hoo." and
many of the old-time Foster melodies
are notable examples of popular songs,
and the first herald of that popularity
were the boys who whistled the airs
all over the s'treets of America. Much
of the success of "Pinafore," "The
Mascotte," of that oddity "The Turkish

sitions, is directly attributable to the

Few words arc commoner in the lan
guage of the newspapers than the won!
" alleged." To allege anything, if the
old meaning be good, isto'aftirm it with
the exactness of a dispatch. But the
participle of this verb has found new
service. Whenever any doubt is felt that
a murder is a murder" the deed is soft
ened to an "alleged" murder. When
ever a man loses his watch and his
senses, and cannot tell exactly how they
went, the lamentable occurrence fs
chronicled as an "alleged-" robbery.
According to these new linguistic
lights, an allegation means a guess.
"Phenomenon," applied to something

seldom used, but in such a manner as
to confute its own meaning. Thus,
in an account of some discovery be
neath an ancient ruin, it was said that
skeletons of great size were found, one
of them being of "the immense length
of seven feet ten inches." If the length
of this skeleton was really seven feet
ten inches, or ten feet seven inches,
how could it have been 4 immense?"
So. too, we read of walls of "immense"'
thickness, and pumpkins of "immense"
girth. Are there, then, no foot-rules or
measuring-tapes to redace these im
mensities? A "conlagratioa" is not

that there wasn't a single honest nigger
south of Mason and Dixon's line.

The gentleman walked over, took a
bill from his pocket, and quietly said:
"Bov, run up town aad get change
Tis, sah." was the reply, as tee
youtn hurried out.
Ia about fifteen minutes he returned,
walked up to the Carolinian aad re
turned the bill, and said:

So it was this time; and while
Tommy was .sitting on his cricket in the

the place where a pliiiter had Muck

how to fool Uncle John Tlcr.
"We couldn't have a sawdut pud

asked Hen. "'Cause he'll be a-looking
out, ami taste of even thing 'fore he

"Of course he'll tasle before he eal.s

fool Aim any common way."
"Well, how can we, then?" asked
Hen; ami he wrinkled up hLs nose ami
thought of the quarters.
" fm .sure 1 don't know," said Daffy;
and she .sighed and thought of the quar

I don't believe we can, am way,"
"Then we won't get the quarter."
saiil Hen, .soberly, "ami Tommy can't

"Oh tie ar me e!" burst forth
Tommy, coming out of hi corner. " I

Well, it xva two hours after dinner
when Daffy skipped out through the
long wood-shed to the barn with a very
eager, excited face, indeed; and it was
at that same minute that Ben ran in at
the side door, all in a flutter.

"And see if this isn't Colonel Forney's
