Weekly Reno Gazette (Newspaper) - June 26, 1879, Reno, Nevada Reno weekly Gazette thursday june self control. Many parents think they Are giving their children a Good education by sending them to school. Uliey do net that the most important part of a child s education is what it gets at Home. Tho most valuable teaching that n boy can have is that which gives him self control. Far More important is it that to should learn to keep his passions in subjection than to he Able to solve a quadratic equation. Most children Are brought up without any teaching in regard to those passions which wreck Many a one upon the rocks of sensuality and vice. Knowl Edge is net education. Education is training the growth and cultivation of the various faculties of the mind. The moral training of children is of the first importance the acquisition of knowledge should he entirely secon Dary. The wires am every Day flashing Ever the country news of shocking Mur Ders usually committed in a fit of men shoot their wives in a fit of and kill one another in a most manslaughter is committed upon the impulse of the moment. The underlying cause of three quarters of All crime is Lack of self control. Auger or some other passion takes Possession of a Man and under its influence he becomes a homicide. An angry word a Hasty blow and life has been taken and remorse seizes upon the homicide to gnaw at his heart forever. Uncontrolled passions have brought and arc still bringing countless thousands of human beings to bad ends. The remedy lies in truer and better Educa Tion n Wise Home training for the Yeung. Those children learn Golf control Best who Are governed least. The importance of self government being admitted As necessary to enable a limn to Lead a blameless and Happy life it 18 obviously wrong to Roar children in a Way that does not strengthen that faculty. Doomit give a child suit control to make the fear of punishment the ruling motive of its conduct does the exercise of that form of tyranny commonly disguised under the name of parental authority bring about the desired result coercion May be sometimes necessary acid is often it never yet made human being better. All coercion 19 wrong morally wrong and nov its Only justification in expediency. Fear is a base and ignoble feeling and in one form or another Lins clone much to retard the Progress of humanity. No Parent should seek to govern through the influence of a feeling that is Allied to cowardice. The Days of ruling with a Rod of Iron arc passing away. In the heart of Overy child Are feelings which re Spond to gentleness and love As Here Are also Black and bitter emotions that Well up Strong and masterful under Tho reign of brutality and Force. The Tii amp nuisance. The Farmers of California Are so much troubled with tramps that they intend to Appeal to the next Legisla Ture for Relief. Another instance of the popular Faith in legislation. The popular belief in the Power of govern ment to cure All social evils is an unceasing wonder. Notwithstanding that experience has time and time again shown the Folly of legislative meddling with social troubles the people still look to legislation for re Lief from All their distresses. The parliament of England has been pass ing Laws for Relief of the Peor and for suppression of vagrancy for scores of years yet vagrancy and pauperism Are constantly increasing in that coun try. It is stated Tunit one Man out of every Twenty in England is receiving Aid from the poor rates is in other words a pauper. Amendments to the poor Laws Are made every year Only to to repealed in turn. And still the distress increases in great Britain. The suppression of the tramp Nuis Ance lies with the people themselves. It originated in the a discriminating Benevolence of Goody Goody people who cannot turn away the beggar from the door. The unwise Bestowal of so called Charity to the poor has to improve Tidence and vagrancy than All other causes combined. There is a better form of Beneficence founded upon reason and experience which is often a Little cruel that it May be very kind. It will give employment to honest labor but refuses unearned bread to Tho sturdy beggar. It puts no Premium upon idleness. If the Good men and women in the country will but adopt the simple pol icy of giving nothing where nothing is earned the race of tramps will soon became extinct. Rage is one of the worst Ever Chroni cled in this country. Should the villain be discovered in that Vicinity it will require a very Strong guard to prevent an immediate Lynching. If telegraphic news exhibits the subjects of popular interests All Christendom must have been profoundly interested in the walking match for the Astley Belt. Now that it is Over it May Well be asked what Good has it done a convention is now being held in Louisiana for the purpose adopting a now the convention leans strongly towards repudiation. The Sacramento Bee appears a new dress and makes a handsome appearance. The Bee is one of the live papers of Tho coast. The new Constitution party better known As the a , hold their state convention at Sacramento to Day. Mono county. The landscapes around Bodie Mono Lake and Vicinity. Editohi4i. Notes the Toek of the Bodie mining com Pany was doubled last week. A Republic on which the Sun never Sci. The quarrel Between the Virginia and Carson newspapers concerning the disposition of the troops on the fourth has about subsided. There was a display of some ill temper in the Carson papers and an exhibition of irritability by their Virginia contemporaries but the Virginia writers pre served their dignity and the Carson men did not. To Efer to Tho clothes sent to Virginia after the fire was extremely ungraceful and ungenerous on the part of the Carson writers. However it was at most a newspaper quarrel and it is doubtful whether the people of either City take much interest in the matter. Like the Austin Eureka newspaper contest for the howitzer it will Seon be forgotten. Rocky Mountain Webster s eloquent description of the British Empire is familiar to every Reader but we doubt whether it is generally realized that w a too have a Dominion on which the Sun never sets. It will hardly be believed per haps without an examination of the maps that san Francisco instead of being at the Western limit of this do minion i Only about Midway Between our Eastern and Western limits and yet it is a fact that the farthest Aleu Tian Isle acquired in our Purchase of russian America is As far to the East of it. Between the Northwestern limit of Washington territory and the Southeastern limit of there is a break of a few degrees but with the slightest deduction our territory extends through 197 degrees of Longi tude or 17 degrees More than half Way round the Globe. Hence when the Sun is giving its Good night kiss to our westernmost Isle on the con fines of Behring a sea. It is already cart let in mis own the Nevada City transcript Lias this for sunday morning the editor of the Reno Gazette has Mude an ass of himself by pub Lishing this item the Nevada transcript continually copies from the Gazette without credit ind not satisfied with stealing the items Cre ilits to Lien invariably to the journal.

Then horses no tint much bigger than Jack rabbits and look like a pack of in Dian ponies after the tribe has been on a prolonged Buffalo Hunt " and so on to Tho end of his article every word of which is from the Gazette and never was in Tho Jou Nuil the secret of the Wlizlo matter is tin Gazette has about As Large a circulation in Nevada county us the Tran script and the poor Little fellow would rather give credit to my other Pape than to the Gaz Kite.

No Prospect of an immediate adjourn ment. Prominent democratic Sena tors oppose the proposition to adjourn without another attempt to provide for the judicial expenses.
