To his mind the chief end of existence was tho nttainnieut of "nirvana," a state of perfect repose, which could not generally be uc compllsbed till after death He recognized no (Jod us a separate ludng, his theory of the universe being pantheistic, not a soul separate from the body, though every hu man beinu laid before his present life passed t hrouuh a -series of existences, which after his death would be continued to all eternity This thei>r> of the ir;:;is migration of souls lor of existence-Minis neni bo some years past in favor among bin ii isi> TKe morality of Buddhism in its ascetic form i> naturally above suspicion lint what chance m tIns swiftly moving age, when everything i* on lire, ha-* a religion which involves conventual iuaet ivity, and has for its chief cud, its ideal of happiness, the nn'vam^astuteof perfect repose, which Is equivalent to mental death or physical annihilation)' Could anything he more foreign to the American habit of thought and act ion? Buddhism it* Inferior to Christianity not only in that it is mi progressiva, inn in that It is highly personal and selilsh. Tho gov erning motiveof the Buddhist is to purify atul save himself Tho leading idea of Christianity isdoing, good toothers The difference is vital, since every living gen eration bus as its be tie lice nt task to create a new world for that which Is to follow. "Save fyonrselfl'' is the cry of Buddhism, "Save mhentf" (* the cry of Christianity, �ml when we bay Christianity we mean not those merely who regard themselves as its orthodox representatives, but nil who in to called Christian countries acknowledge what faith has doue tor the world, ami ao-cepl Its principles in general, without putting implicit faith In all its dogmas. A TlliKKKIl'a OPINION A Paris reporter short time ago thought it would be n sensible thing to interview IIciiuu, one of tho accepted oraclea of human thought, on the threatened Invasion of Buddhism The greJit philosopher and moralist took the matter seriously and practically He acknowledged the admirable moral theories that the system bad given to the world, but regarded its excessive gentleness and resignation, its horror of blood.

There is nothing in the spirit of the age to encourage its followers to persist in the attempt at conversion. The world is just now too busily occupied to accept any form of faith that is purely reflective. In Europe the couditiou of tinned t ruce offers no vantage ground to abstract thought. There is not only the rivalry at homo to fill tho minds of government and people, but a colonial policy that takes up all their spare time and rounds out their sphere of action. As for ourselves, there Is so much to do, so much to develop and complete, that we seem just at the cotnmeucemeti', of our national enrrvr. Tho period for the whole world is one of hope, ,:iot of despair. JCv erywhere. nations atul people are looking forward, not backward.

Profit and Knjoyuicnt In Raining the I.lttlo Fur Hearers. My father had at one time thirty mink, mostly of his own raising, and they were as tame and easily handled as so many kittens, but the decline in furs, and consequently of our enthusiasm iu the enterprise and our subsequent removal to Tennessee, put an end to tho experiment. We lost a number, I remember, toward the last by feeding them too much beef's liver. The Utile iminialsi were exceedingly fond of liver, and we throw into the yard ouo day n whole beef's liver, ou which they gorged themselves for several days. This brought on a kind of dysentery, of which a good many died. We also lost a number from no cause that wo could ascertain, but which 1 now believe was from keeping too many confined in too small a space. Tho mink is a solitary animal by nature, and when too many are by force congregated It brings on contagious diseases among tbem. Our enclosure was at first about four or five rods square, and surrou nded by a clump of small spruce trees, and bad a stream of water constantly running through it in a box about a foot wide and the same depth. Later we found that the animals had to be separated moat of the year, for they are vicious lighters, especially the old ones, and thus the it closure was divided up into small compart nents. The outside was an upright light board fence six feet high, rest ing on a stone wall one foot below the surface, with Hat stonrst at the bottom, projecting in, also with n board n foot wide, projecting inward from the ton, and the corners load with tin Then to insure their not dim! ing out we used to clip t lie two front nails of the forepaws If this is dune when : he animal Is young, ami the nail clipped cose up-that is, taking off theeydof the toe with it-it wi)J not be likely to grow out again, and this quite effectually spoils the animal's ability as a climber or digger- As a boy it was my part of the farm chores to hfok after tho "iniukery," and an agreeable duty it was t� me in many ro-Bpects. The fe.;d consisted almost entirely of woodchucky, in which our section of western New York abounded, and many an afternoon the excuse of being out of "miuk bait" was sufflcieut to let me off about milking time, and many a poor wooden tick fell a victim to my little smoothbore at short range. The young oneH were fed mostly on milk, tapping it up greedily liku young puppies. A young mink Is easily tamed, and they are the most cuto and playful ifttle creat urea in the world. They will play together ; for hours at a lime, rolling nod tumbling } over each other in the water and out In the | most amusing manner. They were sociable and friendly, and seemed delighted when I came into the yard to see them. They would crawl alt over me, and up my coat sleeve and pantaloon legs, and let me feel of their sharp, needle like teeth without offering to bius.# I have seen tLem rolling and tumbling "in the -water, when one would st retch out and appear to be dead, and the other h-jIm him by the uupe of the neck and drag him out of the water and several feet out on the ground, when the "dead" mink would suddenly jump, ami they would both scramble into the water and reverse the performance. lake all meat eating animals the mink would gorge themselves with enough at one time to last thetti two or three days, and during such periods they are stupid and qub-i, spending most of the time asleep, ami when handled will lazily open their eyes and stretch out and go to sleep again But let them once get fairly hnn gry and they uiv about us lively u varmint ns I ever saw At smli times it is bust to Ih� careful nlmut feeding them bits of meat from your hand, for they are liable in grab hold of your linger instead, and then a mink will beat any bull terrier that ever lived t-i the nuttier uf lutu^-in;; on, and a dnz n 11. is runnoi do as lively snarling and -i;:.; Vi>'j cry swing them ar.iu! ii;ei.> , m.i; I the fence ot !ue i i i erlmeut wtui> some such medium for a month or two mouths, as the case may be. The uptown barbers, therefore, look for a boom in this branch of their business The rapid Increase in bald beads nmong the youth of the metropolis is strikingly noticeable. The precise causes, beyond the too constant wearing of close fitting huts, have not vet been definitely fixed, but the bald fucV obtains public importance because it accounts for the bachelorhood of hundreds of ani:-ii'le men who would make loving husband- and devoted fathers, 'tho email coterie alluded to, however, disavow any matrimonial motive in their club project. They assert t hat they have lH:en impelled toward it by the annoyance which thiy experience iu the increased reference to bald heads made upon the burlesque stage. The per.-.istence of the busy house fly, nevertheless, may have something to do with it. An ill naturcd hairdresser, by the way, stated recently that comparative baldness among women, and especially society women, is no longer an uncommon thing, nnfi that the number of ladies who sleep in one part oftheir chamber while their hair, except a small tuft, reposes in another is increasing in a most awkward manner. In regard to their luxurious tresses, there Is no doubt that the hairdresser is more in tho confidence of the society woman than is the society woman's husband.
