Boston, Alaas., oe aeo. ond oloss matter. A PRACTICAL TEST. Our Rcpviblican friends often deny that � tho tariff fosters trusts, but it will not escape public attention that tho Brussels Carpet Trust is the Icgitiniate child of tho McKinley law. The new law increas^es tho tax per square yard on imported bnissels from ,30 cents and 30 per cent, to 44 cents and 40 per cent, riiis, at a moderate estimate, augments the manufacturers'tariff bonus from about 60 cents a square yard to about 7C cents, and enables the half dozen wealthy corporations engaged in making brnssels carpets to charge 25 cents more than present high protection prices. They easily comWno to put np ' prices, and os long as tho Mclunley tariff remains in force nothing can bre.ak their monopoly; for alll foreign competition is shut out, and aa for domestic competition, If ajiy were to bo started, tho tnist could crush it by tho methods familiar to trusts, or elso buy it off. Among themselves manufacturers novor pretend that tho tariff charity is giTCn them in trust for the benefit of their workingmon, but that is tho pretenoo on whicli their pollticaJ speakers delude some of the people into supporting McICinlcj-iam by their votes. The proof of tho pudding will bo in tho eating, AVo -nish to propose a pr.ictical tost, whereby working men cau (lenionstrato to their own satisfaction whether protection increnses their wages or not. Tlicro arc three bru.sse!s carpet factories in this State, one at Lowell, one at Clinton, and one at 'Worcester. AVo shall bo greatly surprised if tho working men and working women employed at either of these places get so much as one cent of the extra protection which the McKinley bill gives to tlieir employers, and. whioli tho American public must pay on every yard bought. Wo particularly rcone.'jt tlio weavers and other workers at citlior of thcKO places to report to Thic Glodk any increase of their wages in nonseguonco of tho extra 2C cents ayard the McKinley bill enables their employers to extort from their customers. If they don't get it they may r(!st assured that the claim that protection inorca.sos wages is a "eold bluff." Unless they get au increase of wages have wo not a riglit to e.x-pecl that they will vote for tavilT j'cforni next mouth'/ The .'iaino tost will bo valuable in the ease of other kinds of oarpcl.s made in Massai^lui-setis. Tape.stry carpets, sue;li as are iiianu-fnctiii'Od at Hoxlniry, have tlidr proieolitm increased from 20 cents a squ.'iro yard mul 30 jier cent, ad valoivin lo2.Seejit;i and 40 per CLiit., ocxuivalcut, we may suiipose, to an increase of at hiast 3C cents. A\'iltoi,i rar-]iots, made at Lowell and Clinton, liave their slice of protection increased froiu-ir) cent^ a square yard, phis 30 per cent, ad valorem, to 00 cents ami 40 per cent. If tlie niauufriciurers do not increase w((,:r''s on the strcjiglli of (hi.s incre.'i.sod jiro-tei.'Uon. then they have beiii obtaining nioiiey tiiuli-r false pretences.

Tho-world bos got too far along iti years now to have any more patience with tho merit that Can produce no bettor vottchcra than those of horodity, and tho pretension that' parades its nohiovoments in the expository columns of tho Pall Mall Gazette. All that sort of puffery is what Is called "played out," and the beefy barons of .Britain, along with their brazen bullies boforo and behind tho counters, may as well malco si note of it and act accordingly. While England is so unselfishly carving up Africa, ostensibly in tho interests Of civilization and progress, but really with nothing but her own gain in view, the United States, -whose people are thought just fit for the snpercllions ti-oatment of her nobles and serving-men alike, Is ongfagod lu making generous preparations to ioop fom-ino from tho doors and oabins ol a dependent population right at hor olboWtWhom she has kept impoverished by tlia suppression ol their natural industries, and whoso sustaining soil is allowed to yield no crops but oppressive rentals for her absentee lords and gentlemon, to spend in luxurlons idleness and dissipation amid the w.astief id follies of her metropolis and the amatonriali rlotoiisnoss of continental life at tho capitals and tho gt-oen tables ot Monaco.

Mr. IIo-witLLs, like death, loves a shining mark; at least for his arrows Of censure. AVhon it is garlands ol praise -which is to bo flung, tho case is different; it being Mr'. Ho-wklls' privilege and forte to discover brilliancy in obscurity, nnd hold up for public adulation names unknown outside tho walls of the Editor's Study; frequent exception to this rule, however, being made in the case of those who write nt a great distance of something especially depressing and unpleasant. These being the cairons of criticism easily evolved from an impartial study ol Mr. Howklls' periodical screed, it was to be antioipatod that tho young author, over whoso unique tales two -worlds are Inughmg and weeping, would presently be tratisfixod with that weapon which has already given the coup rorortion us their work is depressing, as it B"t,s forth what is sordid or sorrowful, hopeless or ii.eaii, is his appreciation of tlieir work. Is tills a rough and sweeping stnte-ment? It challenges cxaniination. Wlicro is tho writer wliOBP work leaves behind it an impression of eheer -,vho stands well witli Mr. HowKLLS? The reply to this question "will eeme only after paiLse. The fact of the presence orub-sencc. in any given aiitli'ir's work, of ciiecr and inspiration, will be found, il may be confidently said, tho touchstone ofteiiest-consciously or uucou-bciously-in use in tho Editor'ii Study.

Bub ohoor and inspiration Mr. Ho-wells, in the words ol Mrs. Gamp, "cannot abcar," and when ohoor and inspiration ardf drawn from a study of living men and Tvomon, and ol Hie - actually lived, tho ofConco Is aggrOr. vatod. With nil its Intimate and sorrowful reoognltlon of so much thatis sinful and .'jad in life, tho atmosphere of ICipling's work is yot distinctly one ol Inspiration, of courage if not of joy, of faith in man hlmBoUilnot in tho happiness of his destiny. Hence Kipling is, with Mr. IIo-wiiLtH, anatliomn. It was said of Diokjcns that ho resented a gentloman; it seoins ns true ol Mr. Howelm that, speaking from a literary standpoint, ho resents a mmi; nnd men of tho, healthy, plucky, virile, unintroapoc-tlve sort abound in ICipmno's stories, as they neem happily to have abounded in his oxperienoo. Wliioh again gives clue to Mr, Ho-iVBixs' denunciation. It remains to point out that there la mingled with the violonoo of Mr. Howells' phrases a curious note ol petty-ono is tempted to say femininely-malicious clovorness in tho holding up ol Kipi,ing's light, obviously snporfloial c#rors ot style and t.asto ns tho sole characteristics ol his work. Kvery oritio must recognize, with a kindly amusement, oooasional traces ot boyish light-mindedness (tho "swagger" ol Mr. HowjttLS.' slugging phrase) in certain ol ICiPMNo's stories. It is an attribute wholly,-and it may bo added, since he is but on the sunny side ol twenty-flve- sorrowfully absent from the groat mass ol his -work; but when it appears It is a quaint, unique, pimgorit quality wbloh makes it Instantly noticed and long remembered. There is a dlsingenuousness distinctly lemintne In kind, in tho presentation ol this occasional attribute as tho all-in-all of KiPMNG's work. Tho character and worth ol Mr.HoWBtts' estimate ol Kipmno and, above nil, the rirroganco-of its a.Htimed fin.ality,.aro por-foolly suggested in the brief, brilliant, mordant plirnse which stands at the head ol a sketch in which KipWNO deals, indirectly, vjith modem realism- 'Solid as occnn foam'-quoth ocean foam.

It seems as though a toxt-book construotod on tho plan bore indicated -ivould receive -wide attention and win a popiravlty with tho younger portion of tho public not now accorded to any geographical treatise on the market.

The question of text-books, .by means of which youthful minds shall bo guided in wisdom yviOx tho greatest directness and economy, has always been one of much perplexity to school boards nnd tenfchers, and nothing as yot produced by tliose working in that field has entirely mot the ideas ol the educational authorities. Text-books havo necessarily grown more compre-honsiyft -with the advancing years, but hardly more comprolionsible. They still, lack clearness  and adaptability to tho youthful understanding. In somo respects they seem to have retrograded rather than progressed. Probably no system (.inoe devised has so sucooasfuUy directed tho beginner's nose in burrowing into the complex Btruoturo of our language as Smith's Eng--llsh Grammar of 40 years ago; and as for spelling books-but spelling books soom to have gone out of fnsliion, so it is hardly worth while to discuss that branch of lenni-ing. It is Ti'Ith respect to geography tlie fl;ldof reform seems most invitingly open. AVhat a flood of recollections sweeps over us as wo take up ono of tho dog-eared souvo-uirs ol our early struggles with science.' We see again the old -ivoather-beaton district sohoolhoriso, nnd aro .sitting once more befijre desks seamed and scarred with tlie hieroglyphic evidences of childish apathy and mental distrnotlon-of thoughts far a\t-ay lit tho woods and fiold.s or on the playground, instead ot upon tho rico swamps or silk looms of China or the spice plantations of tho Archipelago. That, howover, was not entirely tho fault of the pupil. Tho old touch-and-go smack of the geographer, was not c.alcuhatod to irapro.s.s very iirofoundly even the plastic mind ot youth. It did not linger long enough upon one subject to arouse even teinporary interest or excite a spirit ot further inquiry. It is true that the earth is a largo sulijecf, and it is hardly possible to write the history of its teeming life and varied surface characteristics in an exhaustive manner, and compress it all within the covers ot a book suitable for ordinary school purposes. Still, if not com-prchensivo in its descriptions, it can he made much more so than at present in its suggestions. Kean cmphasizo distinguishing features ivith a holder .stroko that .shall arrest attention; give us the benefit of comparison and contrast nnd afford glimpses, oven if only brief, of tho life, surroundings raid history of various peoples nnd places. The city of Hartftird may bo taken as an illustration, inasimich as it is a prominent social and business centre of New England, and furnishes laws and niaiiv more of tho nei.'.ossitios ot lite lor a beloved sister eom-monAvealtli. For inr.tanoe: "Hartford is beautifully situated upyn tUo right bank ot tho Conneolieut river, and is the capital of the State." AVe would not exile this quaint old iiiti-oductioii for tho world. The tribute ot forinjil re^'l^eot has been paid it for about a century now, and the mellowness of \U) antiquity is entitled to somo consideration. lUit thenceforth -\vo must take tho retoriiicr's privilege of divergence and expan.sion. Thus, to continue: "Tho city is noted for tlio magiutude of its insurance interests. It is the seat of Trinity College, a npble institiiliou of learning, iind hns a magnificent .'�jtiito capitol, wliicli, strange to say, was completed within the Uiuits of the original appropriation. It contains tho largest sulf-iiropulling steiim fire engine in Mie ootnitr.v, and the most misleading, labyrinthine and iueonvenient railroad station iu the world. Probably this station has been tlio cause of more good men going wrong than either tlie itch for gold or tho lust for power. .A. beautiful park lies in the centre of the city, accessible from all diroc-tion.'j. A eonspieiKuis feature ot the park is a formidable statue of General Iskaiw, Put-ka.m, the leading revolutionary hero of Coiuiocticut." Here it would bo well to interject a scrap ot history which ought to a-vvaken tho interest of the youthful learner. "Local tradition crodius Gen.

Ono -WAS W. j, Ferguson, who playS the! valet to Mansfield's Beau Brummel, an eccoutrlo com-^ edinn ol unqUoStiODod ability and versa-' tillty. What I think 61 Crane you very -well know. Ho Is a bright, breezy, unaffectedly jolly good fellow. His exceptional good fortune has In no senSe awollod his head. He is today as he was 10 years ago, a careful, pain8t,aking, oon.scientious, intelligently industrious man. As a manager be Is square, as nn actor he is generous to his associates, always giving every ono his due upon the stage, never by any accident utilizing his position as a star to Intertoro with tho success Of another. Wo were talking of a visit mado to his theatre, the Star, whora he Is playing "The Bonator" byEdwinBootb and Larry Barrett. His comments upon contemporaries are always based in good nature. He -was naturally pleased that Booth and Barrett had expressed a desii;6 to see him and his admirable company in "The Senator," wbloh pnok.s tho theatre to Its capacity at every performance, and expressed hlmSoli enthusiastically. While we were talking Perguscjn passed along. "Nothing very remavkablo in that.," you say. Yet, hold on. After the exchange ot ordinary civilities with Brother Ferguson, Grane and I continued our conversation, when there passed an erect figure, square-jawod face, kindly eyed, shaven closely, to whom wo spoke with the cordiality ol long-time friendship. It was John Matthews. John Matthews is in eccentric nctor, as 'n'oll nS an eccentric individual, .Everyljody knows hlui, everybody likes him. � to46dcd by Ouptia's m&g-nlfioent band, will attract 100,000 people from the side streets, paralyze trade nnd commeroa along its route, bo dosoribod rti length in the dolumns ol tho newst�apers on the following day, and be talked ol in XOOO 6f bome.^ -ivltli pride and sntisWotion, , A oonipany on a...village green is ono tbiiig. Tho Seventh Regiment Atnfehlng, Mo-iVK Bf Oatlivny Is another, but a fighting regiment on tho field ol battle whore death is in the air, and the air Is what they breathe is a very different thing. Its edlonol Is Its bead. Its colonel Is its animating spirit. A colonel entbuslastlo, lutolllgenfi, Intrepid, with a cool bead and a fiery temper, "what Is there be cannot do In the way ol animation? He inspires courage, bis individual conduct Is an "example to ovOiT member ol bis corps, tho colonel is the lather ol 1000 men. Before bim arc laid tho complaints, by him aro ordered the words ol praise or condemnation. In oamp he is an autocrat, on tho field ho is the flag, ho is the symbol, be is the exponent. I wonder how many colonels wore killed during the late 'War. Theirs 'was the posf; ol danger.

That bemg the case, you see ciroumstanoes alter it.

It Is liOt alorie groupings thiit are coincidental. Happenings aro eq^ially so, but all coincidental happenings don't attain lame any more than co-inoid�iital groupings bring lasting reputation to individuals. There were doubtless Scores and Scores of colonels killed during the late war, but it would puzzle the ordinary reader to give, off hand, the name of a single one, yet right hero in the city of New York, within lb days, there have- been four Incidents sO nearly alike, so oddly contiguous, as it were, as to attract the attention ot the eft tire metropolis, bringing the nanies ol four utterly unknown, Inconspicuous, insignificant people to the lorofront of general observation. This would seem to be an age, or a-year, rather, of suicides, Central Park hns long been a favorite filaee for mortals who, disgusted with the mimdane sphere, found pjij'sioal courage sufflcloi}t to face tlio mouth of a loaded pistol or plunge bonoath'the waters ol the evor-ripplbig lake. It is a very curious and exceptional week, indeed, when some man, unbidden by his Creator, doesn't utilize the nOoks ot our great broatliins-spot to hurry uncalled into the unknoira future. Of late we havo Oliitnged that. The iron rails of our railroads-elevated and Srtrfivco -are rivalling Central Park in their fftOili-tios lor sfticido, Ono day last Week a yOu'ng man on tho ele-vated railway platform shot liiraselt. He died instantly. Emulating him withi/i ,a very few hours, another young man climbed tho iron support to the elevated mil, jumped before an Incoming locomotive, and ivas instantly killed. Tlis same paper recorded tho suicide ot a man across the river, who for some reason known to himself, unknown to all tho rest of the world, waited the approach of an express train on the Erie rend, sprang in front, aiid wns mangled In.5tnritly beyond recognition. This suicidal mania Is not coiilinodto any special stratum. A woman on 5th a.v., tired of life, swal-lowed ft dose of parbollc acid and perished in iiitonsest agony, while a Mumblei? Piaoed "Woman in Everghtdo av, sought the less exn.sperat-ing elteots of paiii-gij'ing parla green and mado her exit foaniingand frottliig that she might learn the groat secret. AA'hat does it mean? There is nothing no-t'ol, nothing new, nothing strange iu co-Iiicldental groupings or co-incidental happenings. They occur a thouoaud times a year upon the lace of tlie globe, but unless there is some aignifionnt feature, some peculiarity, something out ol tho common, they pass unheeded, even before tho eye ot export observers. It seems to mo that there must bo some, thing by which to account lor the suicidal tendency as manifested in this oity, at all events during tho past year. Despondency, grief, disappointment, jealousy, each has its victims, but in a majority ot cases it is im. possible to toll precisely why the man, or tho 'Woman, takes his own life. It is a subject -worthy tho careful pond or-ing ol students of men, for il wo really believe, as many do, that every individual is put hero lor a purpose, and that his ulti. mate ond is as well known and as clearly outlined by an omniscient and omnipotent Creator as his beginning is determined, why do wo visit upon attempted suicide punish, ment, and why do we visit upon the suc-cesglul suicide our oondemnatioii. All ot these problems amuse, eiitcrtnln and occupy tho time ol thinkers, but none of them Was ever yet satistnctorily solved,save to tbOf man of botmdlesB self-conceit. In the presence of the awful uncertainty it seems to mo oVory sensible intelligenee should bow the head of Is'uorance and of unpretence. That wo would like to know is clear enough, but how to know Is the great obscuration, nnd the universal fact that nobody does ,tnow is the most extraordinary coiiicideucQ of this most extrnordinnry part of God's extraordinm'y uuivcrBo.
