EDUCATIONAL Indnstrial Education form Constituent Part of School Iitfo7 tndlTidual Training of Children—A Vee for Dbad Ijanguagcs. MANUAL THAINIXQ. The groat respect paid to wealth and tho surroundings it permits, presents strong inducements to engajre in trade ho man ever became rich by the work of his hands alone, and the prizes and jkonor8 of society are rarely bestowed upon the day laborer: and what more natural than that the youth should ea­ gerly seek those paths by which the successful have won their envied posi­ tions. Law and medicine are still regarded as pathways to honorable distinction and they aro to-day the only two pur­ suits in which tho laborer is his own master, an independent citizen. All others are mere employes, with their hours of service and rate of wages de­ termined by rules beyond his control. jEyen the small farmer has given place to tho hired laborer the machine has crowded out the man, except as a high­ er education shall enable ou? young men to underst...

*S* W. M. FULLER, Pnublisher. LITTLE FALLS, MINNESOTA. I Referring to the statement that the shrinkage of stock values amounts to a thousand millions, a financial paper says tho shrinkage is simply the squeezing out of the 'water" injected into them, •which represented the investment of not a single penny in absolute cash. There is a good deal of truth in this. The famous Dr. Tanner, of setru-star ration, notoriety, says this is a world of gluttons and that "If people would oat and drink less there would be no more use for the doctors. They could all shut up and go olf on a prolonged pic­ nic." In his own ease, his long fast ef­ fected a cure of heart disease which physicians had pronounced inourable. Tinder the present extradition trea­ ty between the United States and Great 1/ritain, neither larceny, embezzlement, misappropriation of funds, fraud nor obtaining money by false pretences is a crime for which fugitives from justice are delivered up. Thu.se are about the only offences ...

MMLJ&LW'S LOVERS.' Miss Lirripip had a pretty face and five thousand a year, not to speak of ex­ pectations. Pretty faces ore common enough, even in these days of agricul­ tural depression and stagnant trade but a girl with five thousand a year is a rarity and a girl with Sve thousand a year and a pretty face into the bargain is a positive phenomenon, and, as such, cannot fail to bo greatly admired by a number of more or less eligible young men with a taste for beauty of the most substantial kind. Even middle-aged bachelors awake from their habitual in­ differences when, on being introduced to a lovely damsel of two and twenty, they arc conscious that the possessor of a considerable fortune stands before them for although money is the root of all evil, it is a root which most people very willingly undertake the risk of cul­ tivating. Since Lydia Liiripip was thus beauti­ ful and thus rich, it is not surprising that she had not only admirers—men who (hired to wish uncertain thing...

W. M. FULLER, Fuabliabef. LITTLE FALLS, MINNESOTA, Ten millions of votes will most likelj be cast at the election which is to take place in November. The votes cast at the ejection of 1880 numbered 9,193,743, •which showed an increase of 782.997 over the election of 1876. Immigration to this country this year lias fallen off about. 20 per cent. Our exports are also 20 per cent, behind the volume of 1883. Under these circum­ stances, notwithstanding the country is rich and money plentiful, it is an excel­ lent time for economy and retrench­ ment. It is a suggestive illustration of th« Sweeping character of military conscrip­ tion in France that the chamber of depu­ ties, as the cable reports, should have re­ fused to allow young men training foi holy orders to be exempted from mili­ tary service. The value of a man as fighting machine is, among the military powers of Europe, of much more conse­ quence than his value as a member ol e.ivil society. In mo.?t countries prep­ aration for ...

W. M. FULLER, Paablisltftf, LITTLE FALLS, MINNESOTA. 1 1 Severe frosts all through New Eng­ land, killing the garden products, are reported., The northwest has been ex­ empted from sneh a visitation and every­ thing looks well. The population of the German Em­ pire December 1,1880, was 45,238.829 that of the United States same year, i9,369,785. By the ratio of increase Germany should now have nearly 50-, 000,000 and the United States 56,000, 000. The long, cigarshaped steamers have been eclipsed by the America which made the shortest passage, and is broad in the beam, and has engines of only half the power of the Oregon and oth­ ers, and only rises half as much coal. The rims of the America may be ae ceptional, but they show that the race is not always with the Ipng, narrow boat. In almost every section of the north­ west the rains have been frequent and abundant. Some localities think they have had too mtich, but in geileral all are satisfied.

He is a mat) more than sixty years of age, active in business, and of unblemished reputation wherever lie is known. "It was in 1847 thai my attention •was first attracted to the subject of ani­ mal magnetism, by the appearance in •the "Western town in which I then lived of a man named ICeely, who advertised to give public exhibitions. His meth­ od was to select ten or fifteen persons, males and females, from the audience, seat them in a half circle on the stage, and placing a piece of coin or metal in the palm of the hand of each, request "them to look steadily at it. While their attention was thus concentrated he made a few passes over each one, seeming to obtain control over more or less of the group, causing them to Aid him in what is now the fa­ miliar performance of a mes­ merist.
