Well ese. Here is a true story which may have interest and meaning for some young people with lerge ambition and small means: James M- beloned to one of the oldest and proudest families in Balti more. The family mansion was historic. Its walls were hung with the portraits of his ancestors by Lely, Copley and Situart. He was brought up-being an orphan-in his uncle's family, in all the idleness, refinement and total ignorance of labor, or of the coarse, hard, disa greeable sides of life in which his race had lived for generations. Not being 'lever, James failed at college, and at twenty-one sat down calmly to consider his future. le was too dull in brain to enter a profession with any hope of success. He had neither the capital nor experi ence for large business operations; and for this tall, faultlessly-dressed young Hercules to go to measuring calico, or pouring out pints of molasses, or any other work honorable in itself, but wholly at variance with his habits and ideas, meant inev...

Life's neal eaning. A startling feature of the month just closed was the number of suicides n which occurred in it throughout this u country, including men and women of a all ages and conditions. from the starv- N ing old scholar of eighty to the over worked school-boy who gave up the c fight at sixteen. A physician in Phil o deliphia has just pubished a monograph h on suicide with statistics concerning its extent and characteristics in that city during the decade ending in 1881. From it we find that of the 1,996 eases of death requiring a Coroner's inquest in o that time, 636 were suicides, and that o the proportion borne to the population a was from .47 to 1.07 per oent. It is a dificult to make any just estimate of the causes which led to self-murder. Two facts, however, are proved by the d statistics referred to, that suicide in this country is almost exclusively confined to the classes which have received some degree of cultivation; and that, like disease, it bears a fixed and ...
