Here ia a letter for the bojs.
I believe that eyen an imperfect
knowledge of many callings ren
deis a man happier than perfec-
tion in any one anil comparative
iguorance of all the rest. Great
scientists, discoverers and in-
veutors 8eem to be necessary for
the world's progress and tho good
of mankind, but their work is
generally at the expense of their
health and happiness. Sir Isaac
Newton in his last days ezcla med
with a sigh, "I have made a slave
of myself." Ilia great mind was
always on a strain in one direc-
tion. It is said of him that he
had a hole cut in the lower part of
tha door for his favorite cat to
enter aud exit, and when she had
a pair of kitten ho had twi small
er holes cnt for them. The mind
is like the body. It is like the
muscles in the arms or legs If
ouly one set are used tho others
become weak and will gradually
I was talking not long ago to a
earned judge, a ican of fine judi-
cial mind and literary attainments
but who acknowledged his very
limited knowledge of nature and
nature's laws. "I hardly know
one tree from another said he,
"excepting, of course, the chest-
nut, hickory nut and walnut. Yes,
of course, 1 know the pine and
the oak. Indeed I have never had
any occasion to know more for I
was ruised in town and books
have absorbed me."
I was rnminating about this be
cause our little girl's mother is
teaching her to draw and to paint,
and I asked her to draw me a
chestnut tree, an oak tree and a
maple tree. She is woiking on
them now and has to go out and
look at them and examine the
bark on the trunk, and the shape
of the limbs aud the leaves. 1
wonder how many boys and girls
can draw a hickory leaf without
looking at one. I should like to
see their specimens. Thousands
of boys, especially couutry boys,
know all the common trees of
their neighborhood, but it re-
quires cloce and careful observa-
tion to describe them and point
out the difference. Now there are
ten different kinds of oaks in this
cooutry, tint very irw Town raised
people can name half of them.
Then there are different kinds of
hickories and pines and ash and
elm trees, besides the hackberry,
box elder, poplar, beech, locust
and Cottonwood. Eugene Le Har-
dy was a very learned and scien-
tific Frenchmen, but thought that
American cotton gr w on the cot
tonwood trees and that we gath-
eied it by using ladders. It is
said that a Mr Jackson of Atlan-
ta, is tning to introduce the lad-
der kind now and has got the
trees op to foarteen feet high.
The study of the treeB and
shrubs of this southern country is
a delightful and instructive recre-
ation for young people, and I wish
they would pay more attention to
it. Of course this study requires
some knowledge of botany, but
that is eaaily acquired. This kiud
of knowledge is more useful and
more comforting than a college
smattering of calcnlns and conic
sections and rhetoric and logic.
I do not believe there are ten men
in Bartow county who would
know ginseng if they were to see
it. Not nv.tny more know what is
ather graybeard or white ash, the
medicinal shrub from which old
A. Q. Simmons first made the
original Simmons liver medicine
in Gwinnett county. 1 know about
that, for when I was a young mer-
chant I sold the first he ever made
and continued to sell it for several
years and he told me what it was
made c*. I think, though, that
the father graybeard gave out
about the time the old man died.
I wish that our young people
would acquire habits of observing
things more closely as they jour
ney along through life Some
people see everything and some
see nothing hardly. When should
trees be cnt down that are wanted
for wood! What kind of wood is
the htrongeit and will bear the
greatest burden? What kind is
the most elastic! What kind the
hardest to split? What kind will
last the longest in the ground?
V\ hat kind most suitable for pia-
nos, chairs, furniture or wainscot-
ing. What kind for mauls or

Holmes must have studied all

"One Hoss Shay."

But perhaps Dr. Holmes got it
all from some old honest wagon
maker, for they all know. I'll
bet that Mr. Bradley, of our town,
can answer every question. The
boys ought to find out that black
locust and chestnut and osage
orange make the best posts, and
black gum tho best hubs, and per-
simmon the best wedges or gluts,
and sassafras tho best bows, and
white oak the best baskets. In
Engiaud it is claimed that 3 yew
tree post will last longer than a
iron one. The boys ought to
know that the barks of all trees
are nonconductors of heat and
cold and keep them cold in sum
mer and warm in winter, and the
green leaves are the lungs that in
hale the carbon from the air and
uot only make wood for the tree,
but purify the atmosphere ihat we
breathe. And hence every habi-
tation ought to have some trees
about it. The boys onght to Xnow
about those beautiful islands in
the sea that are of coral forma-
tion and kept growing until they
have got above the water, anc
then some cocoanuts came floating
along and lodged there and sprout
ed and grew and the leaves of the
trees fell down and rotted and
made a soil for more cocoanuts
and in course of time the i«lanc
became a paradise. That is the
testimony of the rocks. The boys
should watch the little grassomer
ball that floats away in the air
from the sweet little dandelion
plant. So light and so feathery
that it would take a thousand 0
them to weigh an ounce and yet
the seed are there for more plants
and they are wrapped, as it were
in a blanket to protect them from
the wintei's cold. So it is with
the seed of the Scotch thidtle that
is blown about by a breath of air
like it was nothing, but it has the
germ, the embryo of life in it, anc
will find a lodging place some
where and sleep until spring, anc
then make no mistake. It wi
not come up a dandelion, but will
surely make a thistle. In the hor-
ticultural gardens at London are
raspberry plants that came from
seed found in a man's stomach
who bad been buried 1700 years.
Study nature a little as you go
along, boys, and it will make you
wiser and better and happier men.
Find out why it is that a dead
bird weighs more than a live one
and by what force or power a buz
zard can sail round and round in
the air above you and never bat a
wing nor wave a feather.
It isent every boy who can be a
Ben Franklin, but every boy can
learn something every day, and
even ore fact a day will in course
of time make him a wise man.
What a boy was Franklin! What
a man! The youngest of seven-
teen children apprenticed to a can-
dle maker, next to a printer; ran
away from Bost.n to Philadelphia
when seventeen years old and
hired to a Mr. Read, and fell in
love with Dfborah his daughter;
was never idle; read and studied
in every leisure moment; master
ed French. Italian, Spanish and
Latin: became postmaster of Ptil-
adelphia, then postmaster general
of all the colonies; established the
Philadelphia library, the Philoso
phical society and University of
Pennsylvania, and not long after
he drew lightning down from
heaven with a kite and string and
What a man he was! What a
N»y! Bill Arp.
