TVhat," ask Dr. Johnson, "does a man
learn by travdllns?" To which Macnuley
makes reply. "The real use of travelling,
lrto keep men from belnc what j
Dawson was In fiction and Samurl John i
eon In reality." I
Dawson. It may be remarked, was ar.
ultra-Insular English footman In a novel
called "Zeluco," and written by one Dr.
Moor, who has not achieved Immortality,
thouch he was known to his contem
torales as continental traveller of some
experience and a critic of contemporary
manners In many lands. Dawson was In
the habit of condemning foreign institu
tions as bitterly as Johnson himself,
though with less erudition. What travel
does Is to rub the edges off Islanders and
to open their eyes to a saner perspective,
so that when they bo among their neigh
bors they need not only follow their pre
judices by seeing evil In the best, but may
also reap the benefit of Intercourse and
see good In the worst. Travel teaches
other lessons, and Its school Is a pleasant
one. The gallant Prince Imperial once
wrote to a friend that "he woh wants to
learn by travel must go far." Yet, In point
of fact, many of the most valuable les
sons of travel may be learned near home,
and a man might garner more human
experience of the road In Provence than
In Patagonia. It teaches tolerance, charity
resourcefulness, and tact, virtues which,
though not always lacking In untravelted
folk, are more often than not acquired on
the long trait. It lessons are not set out
In the textbooks. It Intimates standpoints
that lie outside the crabbed outlook of the
slay-at-home. It Imparts a wider knowl
edge than that comprised In the curric
ulum of "muslo and the use of the
globes, and French and all the usual ac
complishments." Wipes Ont DUrespect.
In such fashion, says G. r . Afalo, In
the Fortnlghty Review, does world-travel
wipe out the bloody heritage of Babel.
Intercourse with other nations breeds
mutual respect, without distinction of
language, politics, or creed; and travel Is
wholly free from the rivalry of Interna
tional Olympic games, the mutual gain
of which Is at least open to argument.
Above all, It educates us to recognize ex
ception to the type of foreigner glorified
In Punch. The traveller meets with pious
Frenchmen, melancholy Italians, viva-
clous Scotsmen, modest Germans, and
other human surprises. He parts with
ths hole-ln-a-corner outlook of his native
vlllnge, gaining In exchange a sweeter
ferspcctlve. How badly some stand In
need of this wholesome correction Is evi
dent from their churlish treatment of the
stranger within their gates.
Shnnlil Omit Prrjmllrr.
Prejudice thould be omitted from the
traveler's outfit. Tlio tourist who leaves
homo In the assumption that every Qer
mnn Is a fire-eater, eery American a
braggart and every Italian a botharlo Is
sure to meet with awkward disappoint
ments and will certainly Impair his own
chances of getting the fullest enjoyment
nut of his experience. Oenerally speak
ing. k far, at any rate, as European
nations aro concerned, humnn nature Is
approximately homogeneous, and there Is
much to be said for Mr. Helloc's conten
tion that the differences between the na
tions are grossly exaggerated, nnd that,
In face of a common Mohammedan or
Mongolian enemy, these differences would,
ns likely as not, altogether d'sappear.
Travel teaches appreciation of another
uniformity of type, and that Is the like
ness between h llsmen. dalesmen, c ast
men, men of the plains and Islanders all
tho world over. Eoch type reflects Its
environment Irrespccdve of political
allegiance or religion.
Travel confirms Mr. Belloc's theory,
and this Is matter for rejoicing on the
part of those who prefer peace to war,
and who would rather look upon the
homely rep6se of the ''Angelus" than the
tremendous grandeur of one of Verescha
gin's battle scenes. liy so mingling as
to conceive mutual respect, tho nations
may yet avert Armageddon more chtaply
than by Increasing their already Intoler
able armaments. This pacifying Influ
ence of travel Is doubtless what Macau
lay had In mind when he praised he good
work done In the cause of civilization by
such Inventions as abridge distance.
Assuredly, from many standpoints
travel Is worth while. New York Post.
