   Hutchinson News (Newspaper) - March 12, 1890, Hutchinson, Kansas                                HUTCHINSON DAILY NEWS: WEDNESDAY MORNING. MAflCH 12,1890. cation Mnri Mnko Wortl* of Wlmlom. Thr�re Is fit this inomenL a viut number of young men all over the country who tmvo deep find hunting desire to Imve n college oil ucatlon, but who from Rtrni toned circumstances know not how to obtain it I am to try to help them. First, let the youth nettle witb himself �whether he hen such a taste And talent for learning and ftuch a strength of character am purpose as will carry him through the diffl-cultfea which lie will have to encounter an he past**) through school and college   If ho has bot, let hiui betake himself to mmo kind labor or business, rather than enter upon itruggle in which ho will probably falterani fail.   But If he has, let him follow his Inclinations, nnd in the end, God sparing him, he will be sure to succeed and find many means of enjoyment and usefulness provided for him. kducatinq himbelf. He will first have to look out for a school where the branches leading to a college entrance hvo taught. It Is necessary thut he should have sumo teacher, professional Don-professional, to start hiin. If ho can coutinue with his teacher ho should do so. But if ho cannot ho may to a largo extant educate himself. In Princeton college some of our brightest and most solid studeuts have been, to a large extent, self educated* gottlng occasional aid from their minister, or from a college almnmis, or a stray teacher. A youth thus trnined may acquire a robustness of mind never acquired by those who have been depending all along on others. While ho is pursuing this course, with a teacher, if possible, without a regular tu tructor if he cannot have one, lot him koiuI for a college cataloguo, which he will get for nothing or for a trifle, and let him examine It carefully In order to direct his studies. In order fully to comprehend it ho should con suit with bin teacher or minister, or a college graduate. Meanwhile he may have to en gage in some work bringing a hi it all rcuutnor-atiou; the best office he can get is that of an assistant teacher. Whatever he does, he should reserve his evenings for study. In nearly all American colleges thure are scholarships which may not fully sustain him, but will help him aud tit least pay his tuition. Let him apply for one uf these, aud by perseverance hu is sure to get iu By menus of tht� catalogue, or by private inquiry, he will fiud what the expenses of the collego are for tho year. There are good colleges in which he can struggle through for $.'100, or even $"J00 a year iu addition to hid scholarship. Iu tho summer vncatiou of three months he mny be able to gut remuuerutlvo work iu some house of business, suy as a clerk or temporary assistant; iu the harvest field, which will give him health; iu hawking books, which will show him tho country; as waiter iu a hotel, or in some chance job, any oue of which will give him a knowledge of the world aud business hauiu, to miiku his fchohirship money avail able for good. All such employments are respectable aud actually respected when tho character is good; more so, and will raise biiu more in the esteem of his friends and the public, than a constant dependence on eleemosynary aid. GOOD CONDUCT AND DIUOKNClt. But he may get friends to aid him who will not interfero with his independence. It may be that the congregation of which he is a member, more esi>ecially If he is going forward to tho ministry, may help one who is helping himself; or eoine ludy or gentleman noticing his perseverance may encourage one who is evidently so anxious to Improve himself. If his means fall him, he may retire from calk-go for a year or two aud engage in wme useful employment, to return with perhaps a more, mature tnhid. Let him all the while bo securing the friendship of his professor and his fellow students, not by cringing or fawning, but by good conduct and diligence in study, aud they may tell of odices which he can fill, and help him to secure them, Give ua a young man with fair talents, with good moral character and with perseverance, aud under the good providence of God, which he should always seek to watch over him, aud he is sure to succeed iu spite of all discouragements uud difficulties. I can claim thut when 1 was a college professor or president 1 bad always great pleasure in encouraging such struggling young men. Now iu my retirement I have no greater enjoyment than in following the careers of those who huvo studied under tue, many of them having attained high and houorable positions In tho church, at the box-, in medicine, or in business. 1 can coma eighty-seven professors or presidents of colleges-ooven iu Ireland and eighty In America-who studiod under me. I get occasional letters from old pupils in South America, iu India, in China and Japau, occupying useful pohitioiH as mis ttfouarics and iu dozens of other fields. a hAMI'LE CASK.

Hut he replied thut he had no call. 1 inquired whether hu would go on tu law, aud he said: "I am the sou of u working miller. The training for law Is very expensive and my father has uo mure money to upend for me." 1 told him I would keep his case before me. Bhortly after the distinguished statesman, Kurl Clarendon, asked our preeidont to wind up u student to compete for a poailiou in tho cousular service iu China. I gut him appointed our candidate aud hv stood first in a competition open to every college iu the Uritish dominions.

If thf*re was to be an alarm here to-night I could jump out of bed with tho fullest confidence of saving myself. See here a minute," And he took me into his room and produced from his trunk a fire escape made of ropes, and explained: "Should I happen to be cut off from tho stairs or escapes, here Is my other chance. I catch thifi hook on the window sill, so. throw the rope out, so, and I can lower myself fifty feet in forty seconds."

Presenting a Flag. The presentation of an American flag to the grammar schools of Bangor reminds mo of a similar occurreueo which took placo in a Maine village In the summer of 18U3. A company of volunteers being about to depart for the state capital wero drawn up on tho green to receive a Dag that had Iwen made by the patriotic members of the local sowing circle. Tho village pastor made a sensible presentation s]>ecch, and the banner was received by thooaptuin of tho compauy, whorhanded it to the color bearer, a witty Irishman.

She was within easy heariug distance of me, but I could not get closo enough to her to whisper what I wished to say, and I could not even catch her eye. Suddenly 1 thought of something.

It hi probable that tho frost fish has made the Raritan its favorite aud^specJul spawning rendezvous ever since that river has been doing business for itself^ Tradition says that Old John Inian, who in the early part of the Seventeenth century built the lirst homo in Prigmoro's swamp, and, where tho Albany street bridge now is, ran tho first rope ferry in New Jersey, was one bltUr February morniug Turrying a passenger across on tho ice, when, happening to look through the crystal clear covering, be saw that tho river had turned to molten silver and was running up stream with a volume and iwrsi.stence that iudicatod a bad leak somewhere iu the lower bay. John was uot one of tho kind of old tneu who become paralyzed with astonishment. He was practical. Ho took a maul and broke a hole iu the ice to see what that silver would assay to tho quart.

He studied the cose for a few minutes, and then returning to the young woman, Bald: "Miss, you cau't bring cats in, neither." " Tttin't a cat," said the yo�ng woman, "it's a rabbit;" and tho long ears emerged in confirmation of her assertion.

Talking a Natural Gift. Mrs. Mary A. Livermore is a woman who talks l>ecause she cannot help it. She has something to say, and she says it royally. The knowledge of tho gift which she posse: came to her quite accidentally, and not until she had lived her life, as most women live it, and had had the experiences which had broadened her into the woman which she is, and madober ready for the work that was to be put into her hands to do. She had no ambition to becomo a publio speaker; she had no thought about it at all; she stumbled into it. She was in tho work of the sanitary commission, oue of the active workers down in the hospitals and on the battle fields of the southwest, and her heart was full of the ueods and wants of the boys. She came north for supplies, and ft became necessary for her to tell tho story of her need. Then, and only then, came to her the knowledge of tills wonderful gift, which since then has not I wen withheld from the world.-Boston Herald. Grape Fruit *ntl Shaddock. Many persons use tho words shaddock and grupe fruit interchangeably, and the shaddock is, iu fact, a near relative of the grape fruit, but is much larger, often weighing from three to five pounds. It is also coarser than the grape fruit, and has not yet proved very useful, but the tree mid fruit as they adorn the lawns of many southern homes are strikingly beautiful. The fruits grow singly on the trees, end lo�k like veritable pumpkins suspended from twigs. The tree comes from China and Japan, and was first brought to the West ludies by one Capt. Shaddock, from whom tho name was taken,-Garden and Forest. A Bucllliu In Wart*.
