Beware of Smart Young Hen.
Throo panics havo been caused by
threo young men, two of whom were
less than thirty years of age; each was
tho son ot a minister, who had lorgot
ten tho God of his father. One was a
banker, ono was a broker aud one
a confideutiM clerk. Two died homo-

ono is now in jail. At the ago of 22
he was a bank president. Tho bank
was a success. His personal specula
lions brought him largo returns. Tho
venerablo directors encouraged him in
his career. He was esteemed a won

lather, tlio retired clergyman, treia
bled for tho future of his son. When
the young banker had accumulated
8200,000, ho begged (lira to bo content
and stop. Jsut tlio son was sure
he could mako a million. Temp
tations multiplied. Honesty was sus
pended, the golden bubblo burst, de
tection followed, tho young banker fled
lrom Home and died a penniless stran

with a-fow .circumstantial variations, is

Washington, October 23
Tho special delivery system so) ro
ccntlv inaugurated has not proved such
a success as its originators expected p
it. oovoral problems have arison which
puzzle tho Department. In the first
place, tho law authorizing tho service
mado no provision for its support m
cities where it did not support itself.
Tbo Department found itself in many
cases powerless to carry out its own
ndvertiscd scheme. From many small
towns whero tho full delivery does not
obtain tho reports come that nobody
could bo found to deliver tho special
letters tor tho money there was in them.
As thoro wero no rognlar oarnora in
such towns np way out of tho difficulty
was found until it was suggested by an
Indiana postmaster that his assistant
in tho ollino bo allowed to deliver such
letters and collect tho rovenuo there
from. Tho Postollico Department
to-day has decided that whero such
assistants wero hired by tho Postmaster
this might he done, but that no official
appointed by the government could lie
allowed to add to his nnlary in this
way. Unless tho Postmaster or his as
sistant will nndertako to run about

Tho obligation 'on iho part of tho gov

that it enters into a special contract for

The Licorice Plant-
Tho licorice plant is found in Syria,
in Western Andalusia and other parts
of Spain, in Asia Miuor, Greece, and
is cultivated in Surrey and Yorkshire,
England. It is believed that it could
bo successfully grown in tho United
States, especially in tho wanner por
tions. It isia very important articlo of
commerce, tlio import of tho Iliot
alone to the United States iu 1381
amounting to 39,0.7,000 pounds, val
ued at SHOO.OOO. This is not taking
into consideration tho powdered lico
rico ami tho other forms in which it is
sold. From the reports of Ammiuaii
consuls in foreign lands we havu re
cently learned many interesting facts
about Iicorico. Stick licorico is mado
by crushing and grinding tho loot to a
pulp, whicil is boiled in water over an
open fire, and tho dtcoction, separated
from tho solid residuo of the rodt, is
evaporated in copper pans till a sullio
iont degree of concentration is at
tained, after which, on cooling, it is
rolled into the form of sticks or other
shapes, for the market. The prcpar.v
tion of the juice is a widely extended
industry along tho .Mediterranean
coasts; but the quality beat appreciated
is made in Ualubna, ami snld under
the namo of Sola.zi and Corii'liano
juice. Tlio licoiiee grown in York
shire is made into a conlcetioti called
l'ontefract cakes. Licorico was first
cultivated in Kngland in the reign of
Elizabeth. Tho plant, very graceful,
with feathery leaves, is 'planted in
ridges, and does not como to perfection
until the fourth year. Tho sandy soil
suits it, and tho fibrous roots arc somo
limes ten or twelve feet deep. Theso
aro dug in Autumn, and pounded in
tho following Winter; tho juco thus
extracted is boiled down and mixed
with gum arabio and other ingredients,
and mixed into largo cakes.
Ono of tho bc6t varieties of licorice
grows wild in Sicily, and iu parts of
that island tho farmers look upon it as
a pest, it is so hard to subdue, Tho
plant grows to tho height of two or
throo feet, and boars a small flower.
When tlio roots aro taken from tho
earth they are bound in bundles, and
upon tho backs of mules transported
from tho fields to the factories. Here
tlioy lio in store for a timo in a state
of seasoning. When tho roots are
