Somebody has said thnt there are
more young men in the penitentiary
In this country learning trades than
there are outside of them. The prin
cipal cause of this is, we are educat
ing our young men for gentlemen;
trying to make lawyers, doctors and
clerks out of the material nature
Intended for blacksmiths, carpenters,
and other "hewers of wood and
drawers of water." It is a mistaken
idea and a big one, to teach boys and
girls by insinuation or otherwise
that to labor is disgraceful, or If
labor Is necessary for a-livelihood
to follow a genteel occupation, and
that to do nothing for a living Is
more becoming tho society In which
they expect to move and have re
spect. Hang such society! It Is
rotten to the core and there are
many men's sons and daughters who
are now being educated to become
a "leading lady" and "walking gen
tleman" in the great drama of life,
and will light out for a poor house
or penitentiary before they have
played their parts and the curtain
The sensational, charges against
John K. Tener, which the "North
American" advertised for two days,
and through which its circulation
manager tried to get circulation for
the paper by letters sent out through
tho state to those who might aid
In pushing tho paper, have fallen
flatter than a pancake.
The "charges" only contained the
statement that TENER was for a
few weeks connected with a corpor
ation which has in its directorate
and among its officers men of the
highest repute In the community
and some who have been prominent
ly Identified with reform move
ments in Philadelphia. He found
that he had not time to give to. the
company, and ho retired from ft.
He resigned tho position of Pres
ident which had been given him and
he reslgnod from the Board of Di
rectors. He did not accept the stock
which had been offered to him.
But, although TENER got out of
tho National Public Utilities Cor
poration before he had scarcely got
in It, there were many others of tho
very best standing in the commun
ity who remained in it, and who aro
in it today, if there are also some
men connected with the company
whoso reputations aro not of the
best and the North American
professes to know all about such
men It must not bo forgotten thnt
nearly all of those concerned aro of
the best reputation.
It is for them to fight tho allega
Hons of the newspaper that their
company and they aro crooked. As
for TENER, ho has been out of tho
question for a long time much
longer by months than ho was ever
in It weeks.
It is not to bo forgotten, either,
that TENER and all his connections
have been abovo reproach at all
times. His character Is of tho best,

INSTEAD OF COIN
Public Will Get Bright Yellow Paper
This Year in Plnco of Gold
Washington, D. C, Oct. IS. Uncle
Sam as a source of supply for Santa
Claus has switched from gold pieces
to stamps. Up to this year the gov
ernment mints coined large quanti
ties of two-and-a-half gold pieces
which were known among the treas
ury officials as Christmas money.
It was decided this year to dis
continue the coinage of the gold
pieces and now Uncle Sam has plac
ed an order for a large quantity of
bright new yellow postal saving
stamps. These together with a pos-
tal card upon which they are to be
pasted, represent a deposit In Uncle
Sam s new postal savings bank. In
order to stimulate savings among the
youngsters of Yankee Land, Uncle
Sam has gone to great expense to
furnish an attractive stamp. It is
expected that there will be a .great
demand for these stamps at Christ
The card upon which the stamps
are pasted will cost ten cents and
will be In fact a "bank book."
represents the initial deposit of ten
cents. Each card holds nine stamps
which cost ten cents each. This
may be exchanged for a dollar cert!
With tho use of tho stamps fo
Christmas presents will arise the
question of whether the postmasters
may be required or may lawfully
do a "mail order business" for the
postal savings system will only be In
stalled In one or possibly two post
offices in each state this year.
This question has not yet been do
cided by the officials. They aro of
tho opinion, however, that 4if tho
mall orders for postal savings stamps
do not reach a very big amount for
any one office it will be allowable
for a postmaster to All mail orders
until more postal savings depositories
are established. Generally speaking,
however, tho postal savings system
is not to bo a mail order Institution

deposit his money in his home town

IMMORTALITY OF THE SOUL.
Wizard Edison Denies Everlasting
Llfo While Father Yuuglinii As
serts There Is.
Now; York, Oct. 15. In a contro
versy between Tiiomas A. Edison
and Father Bernard Vnughan about
tho Immortality of tho human soul.
tho former made the following state
"I cannot believe In the Immor
tality of tho soul.
"Heaven? Shall I, If I am good
and earn reward, go to heaven when
I die? No, no, I am not I I nm

part of you.
'Why should you a collection of

any more than New ioik city, a
collection of individuals, should be
Immortal as a collection? Its citi
zens are continually dying, moving
away and being replnoed. Your
cells are continually dying, moving
away and being replaced.
Father Vaughan, In his reply,
speaks as follows:
Edison does admit the immortal
ity of the soul for the all-sufficient
reason that he denies the existence
of a human soul.
"I wish to be put on record as

to Edison for his matchless mani

"But the people must not lose
sight of the fact that Edison is neith
er a theologian nor a metaphysician
"Edison himself has told the world
that about the nature, even of elec
tricity, he knows nothing at all. '
"What Edison did know was how-
to make use of electricity.
"I would venture to remind Edi
son that the human soul might pos
slbly be a far finer and subtler sub
stance than electricity itself."

The Reisler Lads Amaze
Now York Youngsters, Aged Five and
Seven Years Respectively, Would

New York, Oct. 20. Justice Zeller
became amazed when he was told In
tho children's court of tho evil doings
of Max Reisler and his brother George,
Max is seven years old and Georgo

Their father, John Reisler, told Jus
tlco Zoller that they were entirely bo
yond his control. They stayed out
lato at night, ho said, and when they
came In frequently brought as much as
$10 or $15 with them. At first they
said they found the money, but ho was
convinced that they had stolen It.
Detective Lelber of tho Harlem de
tective bureau was able to throw more
light on tho probable El Dorado. Ho
had found the boys Tuesday evening
as they were running uwny from an
nrt shop at 107 West Ono Hundred

On tho way to tho rooms of tho
Gerry society, Lelber said, tho boyi
told him that they had been working
tho game for a long time. Sometimes
they would get as much as $15 from
ono plaeo. They generally picked out
shops where tho cash register was on
a shelf low enough for them to reach
without climbing .on a chair. By thb
timo tho proprietor was hack with
