TIic lliuliclor IloitiPH of Kansas.
Karly in ilie snrinir, several thousand
excellent young; men, or unterjiri.itt and
t. k'ljl, came to Kansas truiu iiolil.- iiioiivok.
This was jokingly called tho I'urjxl lhtg
emigration. js0i nuving tho enrunibraiiix'
of lamilies, iliey moved readily to any pari
of tho Territory, which suited their lancy,
ana touli claims ana bellied down. If
troubles came, they were on hand to sup

or clejiend vu Alisaouri for a posse to keep

quently met iheui in their Kansn! homes.
One iv o met in the road about 70 miles
from Lawrence. Ho insisted on our vis
iting his cabin and inking dinner We
gladly accompanied him. He had a beau
tiful claim part limber and part prairie,
with a creelc running through it, and a
small pole cubin, without (ire place, stove
or floor. The bed was u pile of hay in
one comer on the ground, and an Indian
blanket, which answered for a clouk by
day, aud a bed cover by night.
On introducing us into his cabin, he in
vited us to tit down on his trunk, and ex
cuse him while he " ran over to Jiui'i,
and borrow a linle flour for dinner I am
out," fcaia he. lie obtained the Hour and
commenced making butler cukes, in the
mean lime entertaining us with his new
iiiode of life, and the jdeulures attending j
it. lit the lirst place, the people were all
free and equal, fat, ragged and buuey, '
and cared for nobody. He had not hud
his clothes oil' for two weelu, and hud vi
olated no custom or fuehion of the neigh
borhood. He hud but two cooking uten
sils a frying pan and cotlee pot. He
did nut know what else he wanted, for he
was perfectly happy. "1 akouLl like
mails to come once in a while, though,"
uid he, " for we have had but one paper
since we caine here, und that is aud old
K. V. Tribuite, which we boys huve read
through bo olien that we know it by heuri
advertisement and all,"
After eating a hearty dinner, inudu
sweet by hunger, we left, . wishing our
friend heulih and prosjierity forever. He
was u raiNTi H, a bcholur and a patriot
. Fifty miles further on wo heard of our
friend II. We had formerly known hurt
as a tall, handsome, gentlemanly fallow,
w itli dark curley hair, dark eyes, iho man
iters of a Chesterliel 1, the learning of a
Nholar, the skill of an artist. He played
the violin to perfection, and was the cen
ter of attraction and the soul of enjoy
ment wherever he went. We had direc
tions to his cabin, and drove up before
the door and called out his name. He
was lying yet rolled up iu bis blanket, ou J
the door, which he had taken from its
hinges and laid upon two chunks, for a
bedstead. He roused up at our call, and
on being joked about his bedstead, he gavo
as a reason for this economy, that il was

wan over, two young gentlemen, travelers,
rode up and enquired for varmit i luiins.
Ho replied that he rotild givo ilieni no
antHfuotory information, the country being

" Did you not tell me, said we. "that

"Yes, I did; bull niu keeping them

Tho Coliseum is ono of tho grandest ru
ins in the world. It is one of those raro
buildings whoso reality surpasses any en
graving. Everybody knows tho form of
it, but few cun rightly csliinato its ningnif
cout proportions without seeing ii. Tho
seals rose in tcrrnces four stories high;
each story was about forty ft et high. In
fact, tho height of tho outer wall was one
hundred and fifty-seven foet. The arena
wus two hundred and eighty-seven feet long
by ono hundred and eighty foot wide.
Including tho wall tho building rneastired
six hundred and twenty feet by five hun
dred and thirteen, being as usual, eliptical.
Tho material was tho travertine atone, in
large blocks, with which brick masonry is
intermingled. Tho Mocks or stone woro
not cemented together, hut were kept in
ilieir'plaees by iron pins between each two
blocks. I he walls have been defaced by
holes iiindc to get out tltoso iron pins or
bolts. Tho work of destruction on this, as
on all other ruins, is arrested, and the pre
sent Pope is doing all he can to preserve
Why lo no many C'lilldrrn Dir.
It is a startling fact that very few peo
pie are Pit to be parents. Every summer
we are rendered inUncholly by the ter
rible record of tho sad havoc deutlt makes
among our little ones. These deaths are
mainly attributed to tho heat. This is on
ly nn indirect cause of the great mortality
among our children. They do not get out-of-door
exercise enough, particularly in tho
winter litnc. The system of.koeping them
mullled up beside red-hot stoves, in aparV
incuts through which a breath of fresh air
scarcely ever passes, during the cold sea
son, predisposes them to disease, aud the
moment tho weather changes, they sicken
and die. Children are also permitted to
eat an abundunco of candies, cakes, nnts
and other trash, which should never find
access to their stomuchs, and many parents
allow their very young offspring the use
of tea and colfee. Theso indulgences cre
ate a morbid state of the system, which
eventually produces severe sickness, and
unless the constitution be particularly ro
bust, and the medical treatment especially
skillful, death winds up the alluir conclu
sively. Again, children are not taught
the value of frequent ablution. There
are many children in this city who seldom
or never feel water, excepting upon their
tands, faces and feet. With enervated
nerves, foul stomachs, and pores stopped
up by impure exhalations, our children
cannot be expected to thrive when the dog
star rages. Life Illustrated. '
The N:ttssiTY or Exercise. Tho
benefits of exercise to those whose occu
pation docs not lead them to any physical
exertion, cannot be loo highly estimated.
The body must undergo a certain amount
of fatigue to preserve its natural strength,
and maintain all the muscles and organs
in proper vigor. This activity equalizes
the circulation, and distributes the blood
more effectually throughout every part.
Cold feet or a chill anywhere, shows that
the circulation is languid there. The
muscles during the exercise press on the
veins and help forward the current by
quickening every vessel into activity.
The valves of the heart are in this ,way
aided in the work of bending on this stream
and relieved of a certain amount of labor.
When exercise is neglected, the blood
gathers to much around the central region,
BrM tno oppression about the heart, difii.
(hey fancy they want breath, and feel
Hut the very effort would free the heart
from this bu den, by urging the blood for
ward to the extremities; it would ease their
breathing by liberating the lungs from tho
same super-abundance; it would make the
frame active and light as the effect of
equalized circulation and free action.
