Business men, says the Philadelphia Ledger, constitute the vast majority of mankind. All who have to work for their living, whether as laborers, crafts men, clerks, managers of factories or stores, professionals, soldiers, sailors, statesmen, are in reality business men, although in the more limited sense of tho world it include! Anly merchants and persons cngnged in buying and selling, or in conducting largo estab lishments. Tho number of men who are placed bcyoud the necessity of earning their daily bread by the uhc of their brains forms a very small mi nority of the human race, and this is a consideration of primary importance when tho subject of the education of boys those boys who nro to be the 1 world's future men comes up. Could a parent at the outset of his son's ca reer reseo with certainty what it would lead i- there would ba com' paratively little cli.cu,7 iu providing Km with that kind of ed.Uv.ation ftfi.,0 J or his success. But as " foresight is deiilVd to"TiUman beings, tho next Lct thing vw sucn 4.11 .... A 1 . .... system of training Pb-"- u" eravge, bo best for tlnf liirgcn numo of boys. Injjjanufacturing benches of industry, a better educated work man is required now to do the intelli gent work demanded of bim than was Iho case years ago, and in commerce, generally, there is a gfeater demand for educated men and tho directions which it now takes, call forth more and more a man's abilities. What, then, ought to be the preliminary training which will enable the busi ness man to grasp with readiness the merits and demerits of the theories, ideas and experiments, which are con stantly" being 'suggested tdliini ifftke course of his business? Ought lio to have been previously thoroughly drill ed in the classics to be a master of the intricacies:. of JGreek. grammar, . and able to compose faultless Latin verses? to be able to calculate an eclipse, or to investigate the properties of a curve? or should he be content with a moder ate knowledge of Greek, Latin and mathematics, and devote a proportion of his time to the "onomies and eu logies?" or should be abstain from classics altogether, and be content with mastering his iwn language and such a moderate amount of mathematics as will suffice for book-keeping land-sur vevintr. encineerinit or navigation? Each of these plans has its advocates, In the old world, particularly in Eng. land and Germany, a classical educa tion is deemed of prime importancc.and those youths who are not versed in au- cient literature, geography and my thology, are apt to be looked down up on. It is not so here, however, and it is well known that many of our most successful business men and influential citizens have begun life with little knowledge beyond what their native sagacity enabled them to acquire for themselves. This fact is sumcieut to prove that a classical education is not necessary o .-. business, It I... .,ls, .nil advantages which r - ... enure to the benefi iiof themenof leis- urc, or of those who devote their abil ities to literature, theology, medicino and law, but these are not properly business men.

A eourse of chemistry, for instance, undergone by a young man of twenty, may prove utterly useless to him in a business sense, because he may enter on pursuits which require no knowledge of that science, and after thirty years the science itself may have, undergone considerable transformation ; yet should he then have to turn his atten tion to it, his previous knowledge will make his path smooth to tha future, And so with the other sciences.

For these reasons the mastery of the elements of the physical sciences ought to form a portion of every boy's education. But there is another consideration which ought not to be overlooked, and that is, that tho boy of to day w ill be tho citizen of to-morrow, perhaps the leg islator of tho next day ; therefore it is important that he should be taught the rudiments of law nnd political econo my, together with a clear and sufficient explanation of the principles of the history of this country, and 01 so much of that of England as will en able him to better comprehend our own. Add to this a moderate train ing in elocution, nud tho youth starts in his business life with reasonable prospects of success, always providing, however, that he keeps clear of vice and frivolty and is strictly, honorable, otherwise all knowledge in the world will be but of limited benefit 10 him. On the other hand a purely learned education will bo of comparatively small benefit to the youth who, brought i in affluence, is, through his own or hfs pa"yn'8 misfortune, compelled to 0i, r 1 ;..,, in business.'

Singular death. of an Indian, hi Squzw and his Dog. A Sioux City, Iowa paper, says: We learn the following interesting par ticulars of the death of the noted In- diau farmer. Yellow Hawk, and his wife and dog, near Fort Sully, from Colouel Bannister, who has just' re- turned from the upper country. Yellow Hawk was a shrewd old In- dian, who had abanoned his native mode of life to a great extent, and cono to farming, on the Tcora bottom, a fertile piece ot land in the up river country. Bv his industry and econo- my he had accumulated wealth enough to purchaso a horse and ca:t, with which he lias been in the habit for the past few years, of traversing, the country, and disposing of the products drawn that rain can be produced dur of his farm to the different posts with- jng ft period of drought by missing a in his reach. He always carried with him a canvas tent, which he would pitch whenever he saw au approaching storm. .la siifrrrestion was made to the French . 1 . About three weeks ago thero passed over Fort Sully a terrible thunder storm, and in it old Yellow Hawk vielded un the chost. On the day following the storm, a party of men curastanccs ; but only under nctain at happencd to run upon a little canvas mosphcre conditions.

A party of soldiers immediately repaired to the spot aud found them iu the same positions, It is presumed they wero killed by lightning during the storm of the pre vious night, still tlicro was no evi dence that their death was caused in this manner.- Their features bore an expression of intense fear, but there were no signs of the lightning's work about them, or about the teut. They were buried on the spot where they were found by the Indians. Rain Can duced ? it be Pro- The Baltimore Gazetto says: "Is it possible to produce rain at will during a season which promises to bo one of protracted drought ? The question is one that has execrcisod tho minds of scientific men for a number of years, and all, or nearly all of them agree that no n.atter how dry tho weather may have previously been, heavy rain storms almost invariably occur after a great battle has been fought, or a town has been subject to bombard ment. ' .. ! German writers record similar from the battles which havo recently been fought on the French frontier. The drought, which had parched the: crops and shriveled up the rivers, has been succeeded during the past six weeks by vast and violent rains, which hare done great damage to tho stauding corn in many districts, and have se riously impeded the march of troopsi Since tho opening battle of tho cam paign, at Woerth, until tho close of the siege nt Strasbourg, there has been a series of violent raiustorms accom panied by much thunder nnd lightning These' storms have swept, in., thoir course, across southern Germany to the fur pltiina of Hungary, and it is stated that tho clouds did not du. perse, and fair weather sat iu until the cessa tion of heavy fijliJJBS. Various facts are cited, in regard to previous wars, to confirm the theory thai violent con-f cussions of tho atmosphere are produc tive 01 rain, uuring 1110 inviwmu of ' rcoublican France by tho ', Ger niau arniics in 1790, tho latter, on their retreat, were obliged to abandon Uie;r beavier -artillery because the ra;n8 l,aj saturated the soil to such a uepth as to prevent them moving the guns with the necessary rapidity. Iho Franco-Prussian war of 180b was marked by heavy and continuous rains, anj during nearly all the campaigns 0f Napoleon, the Crimean war, tho war ; Italy, which ended a the ex jn,ision of tho Austrians, and also our civil war, similar metcrological disturbances were noted , ,Yrom these facts tho deduction is number , of batteries 01 artillery ana firiUK them off simultaneously, at in tcrvals of a quarter of an hour. Such I DO government during the severe drought of June last; out it was not then acted on. It is not, however, claimed "that success would be sure under all cir be blowing at timo and carrying with it heavy masses of clouds ; that the barometer shall mark less than Eeven ty-six centimetres, and that the place of firing shall be at some point on the coast where tho atmosphere is charged with aqueous vapor. But if the theory thus elaborated bo I correct, some of these conditions are certainly not required.

Shocking Affair in Somerville, Mass, At tho lard refinery of Lincoln, Chamberlin & Co., (of Boston,) in Somerville, a shocking accident occur red on Monday afternoon about live o'clock. The vats for rendering the lard are tanks that rise about three feet above the floor and are about nine in depth. While engaged in some work about one of them, lIr. George Lincoln accidentally slipped, and in attempting to recover his balance fell over the side of the vat into the boil ing lard, the scalding mass enveloping his entire body.' A young man named Morrison was the first to wituess the accident, and in an unsuccessful at tcmp to get Mr Lincoln out of the vat was himself badly burned. Assistance, however, was speedily obtained, and the unfortunate man was taken out in a condition almost too horrible fordes criptiou. Life remained,however,and Drs. Hooker and Barrett , were iniruo diately summoned. They did all that laid in their power to alleviate the sufferings of, Mr. Lincoln, but pro nounced hia recovery, hopeless. He died about two hours after .tho acci dent, in great aouy. , His brother-in. law, Mr.. Morrison, suffered excessive ly from tho scalding received in . at tempting to get tho victim out of . the vat, Tho terrible accident accurred while Mr. Lincoln was brushing out the vat, when he slipped from the plat form. ,IIc resides in Boston, was abou twenty-four years of age and Married . A Touching Scene. A singular incident occurred in tli office of a Louisville' jutomey-at-law last' week.1 A couple wd had. been married for sixteen or seventeen years had wearied of the matrimouial bar ness, and the w ife had brought suit for divorce, upon the ground of cruel and inhuman treatment. The affidavits had all been made out in due form and filed in tho courts, and she had called at the office of tho attorney that day for the purpose of urging him to push the suit. While seated in the office her husband came in. Ho sat and looked at his wife for some, time, and then said, "Old women we lived together for a long time." The wife repled. "Yes, we did." The husband said, "Don't you think we had better try it again ?" The wife replied, "les if you will act right." The old man rose up, lifted his hands to Heaven, and, with a voice tremulous with emo tion, repeated his vows to nourish, cherish, love, honor and protect until death the bride of his youth, and then folded her to his bosom, and they wept together for joy. Even the fliuty-heart- ed attorney, who saw a good caso with big fees fading forever from the sight, was moved to tears. The gentleman then paid his fees and costs, and the attorney was authorized to withdraw the pending suit, and the -old people left tho office hand-in-hand and as hap py as June bugs.' The Money-Order System. Tho money-order system is intended to promote public couveuicnco and 111 sure safety iu the transfer through the mails of small sums of money. Tho mode by which safety is secured con sists in leaving out of the order the name of the payee or party for whom the money is intended. Iu this respect a money-order differs from al. ordinary hank draft or check. Au advico or notification containing full particulars of the order is transmitted by tho issuing postmaster to tho postmaster at tho oflico of payment.. Tho latter is thus furnished, before tho order itself cau be presented, with tho necessary information to detect fraud, if auy should bo attempted. In view of frequent mail robberies, citizens U Cud it to their advantage to patrouizo the postal order system, as then there is no possibility oi their be ing the losers should their letter con taining the order bo lost or stolen, as it will be duplicated by the postmaster from whom tho order was bought. The rates of commission charged for mouey-orders arc as follows : On or ders not exceeding f 20, 10 cents; over $20, and not exceeding $30, la ceuts; over $30, aud not exceeding $40, 20 cents; over $40 aud not exceeding $50, 25 cents. , Advice to fisb-oateca Deal gently with the herring.

A very good joke that on an attache- of ft prominent publishing house, who. on last Thursday evening, escorted a . young lady to the opera. The gentle man had been compelled by bis busi ness to work hard of late and, feeling quite tired, is it any wonder that the easy jolting of the carriage over the wooden pavements of West Washing ton street should put him to sloep? The lady having no one to criticise tho play with her, or discuss the mor its and demerits of their acquaintances, also wooed the drowsey god, and pret ty soon both occupants of theelegantly unholstcred clarence were fust asleep. Nor was this all. The driver, some how, managed to fall asleep also, and as the horses were kiud and gentle, they jogged along faithfully ttntil No. Washington street had been reached. Here they stopped in front of tho house, and there they remained until morning. Whether the gentle hian and lady, or the driver woke first is not known; but is was nearly two o'clock when they did discover their absurd situation. Chicago Times. Spanish Barbarities to Cubans. An account of tho shocking trcat meut of Cuban leaders by Spaniards, in Havaua, appears in a correspon dence from that ' city on tho 23d. Twenty prisoners, all women and chil dren, reached Havana by railway, and were led from the depot to the prison under guard, and all of . them, eveu children only five and six years old Lad been tightly pinioned by the arniB. At tho head of the sad procession marched twohandsomo young ladiea of eighteen . years, both hand-cuffed. One was the daughter-in-law of Presi dent Cespedes . the other a daughter 6f General Uiguerdo, recently garrot- ed iu Santiago; The ladies were all members of the best of families on the island. As these unfortunate crea tures passed through the street the Spanish mob threatened them, and io some instances attempted voilenco. A Juvenile Mother. A census- taker, going hiB round, Btoppcd at an elegant brick dwelling-house, the ex act locality of which is no business of anybody. He was received by a stiff, well-dressed lady, who could wen oe recognized as a widow of some years standing. On learning the mission 01 her visitor the lady invited him to take a seat in the hall. Having arranged himself in a working position he in quired for the number of persons in the family of the lady. "Eight, sir," replied the lady, "including myself." "Very well your age, madam?" "My age, sir!"rcplied tho lady, with a piercing, dignified look. "I con ceive it's none of your business what my age might be ; you are inquisitive, sir."
