Something About Roys.
To regard boys as nuisances, and so proclaim
them, is and-has ever been universal. As a class, j
they cannot boast a long list of admirers. The !
very sight of one brings up visions of all kinds I
of wearing, tearing, provoking tricks and acci- j
dents, of which they have been the instigators 1
and the cause. The popular verdict is, that mis- <
chief is the law of their lives: and from the time !
they leave off petticoats until they may be con- j
sidered full-fledged men, the largest part of their
lives is given to accomplishing the greatest
amount of this in the shortest possible time. |
Indeed, so prone are boys to mischief, that even ;
before there is a difference iD dress, the smallest j
specimens of the genus homo, by daily and hourly j
feats peculiar to themselves, proclaim their sex. j
Some writer has facetiously remarked that,
through some oversight, no arrangement has
been made for the accommodation of boys in j
the world; that they are always in somebody’s
way. Society accepts them under protest—or
rather does not accept, only tolerates. Boys
understand this, and become “constitutionally
“ When yon see a ragged urchin
Standing wistful in the street,
With torn hat and kneeless trowsers,
Dirty face and bare red feet,
Pass not by the child unheeding:
Smile upon him. Hark me—when
He's grown he’ll not forget it;
For remember, boys make men.
“ When the buoyant youthful spirits
Overflow in boyish freak,
Chide your child in gentle accents,—
Do not in your auger speak.
You must sow in youthful bosoms
Seeds of tender mercy; then
Plants will grow and bear good fruitage
When the erring boys are men.
“Have you never seen a grandsire,
With his eyes aglow with joy,
Bring to mind some act of kindness,
Something said to him—a boy?
Or relate some slight or coldness,
With a brow all clouded, when
He said they were too thoughtless
To remember boys make men ?
“Let us try to add some pleasure
To the life of every hoy,
For each child needs tender interest
In its sorrow and its joy.
Call your boys home by its brightness,—
They avoid a gloomy den,
And seek for comfort elsewhere,—
And remember, boys make men.”

this popular idea of boys, as a class; but as a
close investigation of a subject not unfrequently
modifies or changes one’s opinion, an intimate
knowledge of the nature of boys has greatly
modified my opinion of the class, and converted
me into an absolute admirer of a real, genuine
boy, though he may be brimful and running
over with fun and frolic. I am convinced that
a very one-sided view of boys and their proceed
ings has been taken, and a most prejudiced
judgment concerning them given and accepted
by the world at large. They are often misun
derstood and improperly disciplined, and be
come insolent and unmanageable from a sense
of wrong and injustice. Their tempers are often
made sullen by continual fault-finding. Sup
pose they are awkward.and uncouth, will it do
any good to have this continually flaunted in
their faces. On the contrary, it will increase
the difficulty by making them self-conscious and
ill at ease. Ido not pretend to say that boys are
all they ought to be. The question is, How can
they be made better? How can their exuberant
energy and spirits be utilized and turned to the
best account? The obvious answer to this im
portant question is: Give them some employ
ment, and patiently, kindly and decidedly re
quire them to do their work well, with system
and regularity. To illustrate this idea.
Upon a visit to the country, I was delighted
to learn that the boys of the best families milked
the cows and cared for the stock almost without
assistance. So far from regarding it as a degrad
ing, menial employment, there was a pleasant
rivalry between the boys; each one felt a proper
pride in his skill. Their labors were supervised,
and often rewarded or kindly commended, by
older members of the family. Every sheep and
calf had its name, and these dumb brutes seemed
to feel almost a human affection for their young
protectors. Nothing was allowed to interfere
with school duties; but work and study being
over, they were ready for kites, ball, or any inno
cent amusement which attracted their attention;
and all with the sanction of their parents.
What manly, self-reliant boys they’ were!—
truthful, frank and out-spoken, and with no
false pride to make them ashamed of honest
work that lightened father’s and mother’s labors.
Society will, I am sure, never have cause to call
them shams or parasites.
Now, city boys may never be required to milk
cows and attend stock; but are there not other
employments in which they could be just as
useful? I think so, and it is the duty of par
ents to see that they have occupation, and per
form their duties faithfully. You say you “have
no time to be looking after boys?” Oh, what a fatal
mistake! You had better leave other things
undone than allow your sons to drift away from
you—keeping you know not wliat company, em
ployed you know not how. The very money
you are striving so hard to make may be spent
in getting your neglected boy out of an ugly
scrape, into which he has been lured by some
sharp, dissolute youth, who, you are shocked to
learn for the first time, has long been the inti
mate associate of your son.
Another fatal mistake made by parents in too
many instances is the'failure to provide pleas
ures and amusements for their children at home,
which their animal, or rather human, nature
absolutely demands, just as they find themselves
no longer satisfied with childish sports. This is
the turning-point in a boy’s life, when, by a
judicious outlay of time and means, home may
be rendered so attractive, and home-folks so
dear, that the momentous question of where his
evenings shall be spent is always settled. The
hours between twilight and bed-time may be
pleasantly and profitably spent amidst refining
influences, that, unless a boy is more than ordi
narily vicious, will save him from contaminating
influences and the keeping of late hours. Boys
must have a jolly time: let them have it at home,
where all excesses can be kindly and decidedly
checked. Provide music, innocent games, books
which amuse and entertain as well as instruct.
Give a right direction to their taste by pictures
and all the aspects of home. Give them animals
to pet; if possible, a slip of ground to cultivate
in flowers; by all means, spare them a few dol
lars to spend upon an aquarium. Loving, con
scientious parents will use self-denial to provide
these and other home recreations, and in the
end find full compensation in saving their sons
from outside pernicious influences. Help boys
to form good habits; teach them that each one

HOW I BECAME A GOOD TEMPLAR.
BY H. K. SHACKLEFORD.
In the summer of 1874, I met, while going to a
neiglilioring town, a gentleman from Charleston,
South Carolina, who, at first sight, impressed
me very favorably. He occupied the seat in
front of me, and appeared to be studying the to
pography of the country through which we were
passing. On the seat back of me sat two middle-
aged gentlemen, apparently well-to-do in the
rivals the maniac in his senseless ravings and
idiotic actions, and descends below the level of
brutes in his worse than beastly state of disgust
ing drunkenness. It is useless and insulting
for the adherents of drink to advance the argu
ment that it is the only antidote for all of the
numerous ills with which they claim to be af
flicted. Even were some individuals benefited
by its use, its terribly vicious and destructive
results on society should forever banish it from
all decent, intelligent communities. The position
is taken, however, that even those who propose
to use it for the benefit derived, inwardly chuckle
at the idea of the gross deception which they are
attempting to palm off. The fact is they are
pandering to a depraved appetite, and the excuses
which they offer are so flimsy in their texture
that the ostrich hiding its head in the sand is
creditable in comparison.
Another argument offered by the friends of
drink—viz, the vast revenue derived from its
manufacture, and the means which it offers to
so many’ hundreds of making their living by its
sale—is too abominable and hideous in its char
acter to oe a moment considered. That any one
should claim the right—and exercise it, too—to
make their living by degrading, destroying and

Steamed Beef.—Almost all stoves lia’ve a perfo
rated steamer for cooking Irish potatoes. It
will also answer a valuable purpose for steaming
meats not sufficiently tender cooked by any or
dinary process. These steamers are made to fit
in the mouth of a kettle, being somewhat smaller
than the kettle. Fill the ketUe not quite half
full of hot water; the water must not touch the
meat. Put the meat in the steamer, shut down
the cover carefully, set the kettle on the back
part of the stove, and let it simmer four hours.
Replenish the water if necessary. Just before
the meat is served, thicken to taste with brown
flour. Stew the meat in it a quarter of an hour.
Season the gravy with a little tomato catsup.
Or instead of stewing, pour the gravy in a stove

No sooner had the words “Good Templar”
passed my lips than I felt my hand seized by
the Charlestonian in front of me, and held in a
strong, manly grasp, under the cover of which
the grip was given. He was a brother, and we
were instantly acquainted. Just at that moment,
the black bottle was presented to him with the
“Perhaps you will join us in a taste, Mister?” !
“No, sir. I used to drink to excess, but lam I

“Did you ever hear the like?” exclaimed the
man with the bottle, turning to his companion.
“Everybody and his wife has joined the Good j
Templars. Guess we’ll have to go it alone, Ben. ”
“ Hold on, my friend,” said the Charleston
ian, interrupting the man as he was about to
drink from the bottle; “let me tell you how I
came to be a Good Templar before you drink
any more. It won’t take me many minutes, and
you may be interested. I live in a beautiful
‘city by the sea,’where it has long been the
rule and custom for gentlemen to drink. The
city is full of magnificent saloons, where the
finest wines, liquors and cigars are sold. I was
a salesman, getting a good salary, and my little
wife and children were well cared for and happy.
But the custom of social drinking soon made me
thirst for strong drink, until I was never happy
unless I had my blood at a boiling heat by alco
hol. My credit was good at all the saloons, be
cause one was not considered a gentleman who
could not treat his friends when and wherever
they met. I paid all my bills monthly, though
I often reeled and staggered home from the rev
elries at the bar-rooms, and was taken care of by
my good wife. All my debaucheries were car
ried on by night, outside of my employer’s busi
“One day I drew my month’s salary, and
started out to pay my monthly bills. I found,
after paying three liquor, one cigar, and my gro
cery and butcher’s bill, that I hadn't a dollar
left, though our household expenses were but
one-third of what I had paid out that day. 44'hen
I reached home, mv wife asked me for money to

direction, and we hope it will receive a liberal
support in Georgia. Our people must not for

to it. Each council shou: l take The Sunny

The Sunny South, our beautiful organ, is be
coming a valuable auxiliary to the United Friends

not our support to keep it in the ascendancy;
but when its clever editor comes forward and
