"A BROKEN-HEARTED MOTHER."
Schools and colleges are not the only
places where valuable education is ob
tained. This world la a great college and
life is the teacher. Each day of life is
n assistant teacher. Young people who
are eairer Tor an education can ooiun
knowledge, culture and wisdom If their
eyes, ears, minds and hearts are open
to receive what each day has to Im
part. The reading of good books, the
memorizing of good bits of prose and
verse, the listening with attention to
what people of education have to say, all
help to cultivate the mind and train the
speech In right methods of expression.
There are Schools of correspondence,
which for a comparatively small sum of
fer excellent methods of education to
those who are deprived of school nd
vantages. Few of our greatest men and
women have been college graduates.
The young man who Is absolutely de
termined upon making a place for him
self cannot fall of final success if he al
lows nothing to discourage him. The
same may be said of the young woman. I
Ambition- (anchored on aspiration) Is a
plow whl' h will cut its wry through
the furrows and prepare the field for the
harvest which Is sure to follow.
Abraham Lincoln and Benjamin Frank
lin were both poor boys with few ad
vantages. To their names could be uddel
that of a great galaxy of brilliant stars
whose fame illuminates the earth to
day; men and women who, step by step,
fight their own way from obscurity and
poverty to recognition and prosperity.
Let this young man and young woman
go to the public library and secure the
biographies of great men and women:
let them read them with care and ponder
over the mental attitude which led these
eople to success. A'.l that we long for,
all that we wish to be. do, and have,
lies In the mind; for the mind comes
from God and goes to God, and he who
realise this fact and arts upon it can
rot become a failure. , .
Here la a little rosary, for a "broken

Repeat this rosary many times a day

we cannot loosen his hold on the Imag

Whence came the Indian? Who were
his ancestors? Waa he an Indigenous

An ethnologist would probably tell you
now, that the place or origin or tne
American aborigines was eastern Asia.
That Is the latest opinion It may be
correct, but If so. It tells us very little.
It goes back beyond the boundaries
of certain history, to a far off, hypothe
tical time, when there waa a natural
bridge across the Behrlng sea.
For our purpose It Is better to begin
with things as the earliest white settlers
found them, and try to work no farther
than the relics and monuments left by
the red men themselves will carry us.
That Is not very far; only a few hundred
years beyond the date of the 8panlsh '
conquests and settlements. The relation '
of the various native tribes and nations j
to each other Is still a mystery. The j
Mohawk ot New York had never heard i

and . superior to all others, waa deep
planted In the Indian. Well, then, what
waa to be expected of htm? Are the

Major Towell also called attention to
the fact that the Indian tribes, when the
white man came here, were In the main,

living In fixed habitations.' Agriculture
