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 groatn.it 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 old-fa.sb-ionod, 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. Dorothy Lundt. bo in supromo command of the American troop.', and ospooially Bo.^ton troops." 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. Tlin idea is thrown out for tho benefit ol any one who hns inclination and talent to onrry It to full llruition. RoDEBT G. FrtoB.

Tlie feeling grows among filth district Bopublicans that Gen. Banks has been shabbily treated. There was a bniSqnonoss and harshness in tho manner of his displacement by Candidate Fox, which has made sympathy for the -white-haired vot-oran all but universal.

Tho law does not invest the policeman with r.ho power ol life and death over the people. That power is lodged elsewhere. President Whitnky'S elevated railroad scheme is received wi1-.h general favor.

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 th.it 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.
