Watch the Nurses.
The following timely editorial ap
peared in the Savannah News of Mon
day last. We have seen something of
this kind in Valdosta. Mothers, read
“Some sort of society to prevent
cruelty to children seems to be needed
in this city. The; Morning News has
from time to time recorded instances
of brutal treatment of children by col
ored hoys and men, such as the strik
ing of a child with a rock ar.d the
throwing of a carriage and baby in
front of a team. Occurrences like
these are rare, of course, and the per
petrators of such acts are pretty cer
tain to be punished, but the abuses
which young children suffer at the
hands ol their colored nurses are not
rare, and the most of them are not
noticed nor corrected. People pass
ing through the public squares, where
the children are sent to get fresh air,
have frequently seen colored nurses
slap children mercilessly and other
wise abuse them. It is an every day
occurrence. There are some kindly
disposed, responsible colored nurses
in the city, but there are a great many
more who have no just conception of
their duties, andjwho, by maltreatment
make the children afraid of them, as
the surest means of having an easy
time. They speak roughly to them,
and in a fit of passion strike
them. They leave them to take care
of themselves, and between ill treat
ment and neglect, children often re
ceive injuries Irom which they do not
recover for a long time. It would be
better for them to be unprovided with
nurses, and to get into the open air
only when they could be taken out by
some member of the family, than for
them to have such nurses. Negro
girls are frequently hired out as nurses
by their relatives, who take their wages,
and in such instances they are very
indifferent to their duties, and JJare
cruel to the children placed their
charge, because they are dissatisfied.
The mothers of these children are
partly to blame for this state of affairs
They are too anxious to escape the
care of their little ones, and when they
employ a nurse they feel that their
responsibility has been in a great
measure placed upon other shoulders
They allow their children to remain too
loDg out of their Sight, and are not
diligent in finding out what kind of
treatment the nurses give them.
The abuses alluded to need correc
rection, and parents should do much
to conect them."—Valdosta Times
Figures That Stagger.
From the New York World.
At the close of tho fiscal year there
were on the pension list 489,729
names. This is 2,000 more than the
standing army of Germany. It is
nearly a quarter of a century since
the close of the war, and yet there
were added to the list of pensioners
during last year 53,675 names,
against only 16,000 dropped—a net
gain of 37,000. There are still pend'
ing. 479,000 original claims, besides
the requests for rcrating.
Tho amount paid for pensions dur
ing the year was 888,275,112, and
the heavy disbursements in July and
August indicated an expenditure for
the present year of fully 8100,000,-
090. This exceeds by nearly one-
half the entire cost of the government
before the war. It overtops the cost
Of the standing army of Great Britain
and nearly equals that of France,
The payments on pension account
since 1861 are 81,052,218,413—al
most os much os the present amount
of the public debt. The increase of
pensions has outrun, in recent years,
the diminution of the interest charge.
It is not strange that Secretary No
blc called a halt.
Daniel Webster, in one of his
speeches, sgid there were three things
he wished to impress on the mind; of
pupils. First, you cannot learn with'
out your own efforts. All the teachers
in the world can never make a scholar of
you if you do not apply yourself with all
your might. In the second place, be
of good character and good behavior,
a boy of strict truth, honor and con-
cience in all things. Have but one
rule, and let that be always to act
right and fear no'thing but wrong
Woman is an enigma. She will
(see a frowning world and cling to
the man she loves through the most
bitter period of trial and adversity, blit
she wouldn’t wear a hat three weeks
behind the style to save the govern
ment.— Munsey’s Weekly.
HE SKABOHED WITH SHEEHAN
TO THE SEA;
Trudged all the way on foot, over mountain
and through momas, carrying knapsack and
gun. slept on brush heaps to keep out of the
mud, caught cold, from the effects of which
his friends thought he would never recover.
Lingering with slow consumption for many
years, he saw Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Dis
covery advertised in a country newspaper,
and ho determined to try it. A few bottles
worked a change; b!x months’ continued uso
cured him. Always too independent to ask
his country for a pension, ho now says ho
needs none. Ho helped save his country, he
saved himself 1 Consumption is Lung-scrof
