ABE PAEENTS BLIND? 23IIa "Wheeler Wilcox Writas About Girls and Boarding: Schools. JanjJors 31cnaco Maidens—Mothers Should Bo Very Careful About Tholr Daughters' Earl? Years—The Country Girl Sn the City School. \ ICOPYHICHT, 1SK. | HEN asked to give my opinion of boarding- schools I found it difficult to formulate. The girl who has a tvise, broad-minded, sympathetic mother had- better remain a iv a y from boarding school. The girl who 3:as not this influence may be ;?rrca.tly benefited by a boarding school. 'There are more g-ood schools than oiothcrs in the land, I fear. I had but three months'personal experience with boarding school. The •only knowledge v?hich I gained during 4hose three months was the conscious- aicss of the inadequateness of my m:ith- •ematical ability and my wardrobe to cope vdtli my associates. The mathematical deficiency could have been remedied, perhaps, by a return to the -school. The matter of wardrobe seemed ••without solution. J do not think a more unwise action ican be made by parents than sending a young girl from the country to a city school. Yet it is done every year by -.thousands of devoted parents, who snake painful sacrifices to enable them io carry out this cherished desire. Tho young girl who goes through 'the first year of such a school and is not •.rendered restless, uneasy and unfitted :for the practical duties of life which usually lie before country bred girls, is ~i model of good sense or a born philosopher. Tho very sights and sounds of city ii'u are distracting and exciting to the jjirl who is not accustomed to them; the crunching of carriage wheels on a •gravel drivcwa3-, the fashionably at- •iired women, the, gossip in the air about vjalls and theaters, which the day.schol- ars bring, is not at all conducive to good 'scholarship, If a boarding school is to be selected, -as necessity frequently demands that it must be, let it be as remote as possible irom fashionable life. I wish we might have Protestant schools conducted in the manner of convent schools. Some of the most charming girls I have '!cnown,,and some of the best educated, •nave been taught in convents. There is greater surveillance over the pupils, And greater system and more thoroughness than is to be found in most board- youth. They could have bad no emotions and no temptations themselves, or they would never allow their daughters to walk such perilous paths, as scores of them do walk, unwarned and uninstructed. A few years ago I knew parents who were preparing to send a beautiful girl of fifteen away to school. The girl was prematurely developed in heart and body, and of the voluptuous type so attractive to men. I asked her mother if she felt perfectly secure regarding- the associates of her daughter at school. "Oh, Mary is such an innocent-minded creature I can trust her anywhere," the mother replied, proudly. "She is really the most innocent child 1 ever saw for a 1 'girl of her age. I think she vail develop very late. I want to keep her a little girl as long as possible, so I have sot disturbed her mind with any premature confidences." Kow, to my absolute knowledge, gained by accident, I know this young girl to be a woman in her emotions; and already had she passed through cmbryc adventures with the opposite sex which A .DOCTOR'S ADTOTUEE. Why Ho Lost His Contempt Superstitious People. for SHE COXFIDES IN HER EOOM-3IATE. ELLA ?i^ schools. And yet a convent educated to whom I oneo made this remark assured ma that she learned more mis- «^hic.f in the convent than sho had ever 3n the world, ''The girls wore either -?ery stupid or very bad," she said, "and •Jibe bad girls delighted in bringing- per- joicious books into the convent secretly .-ami distributing- them about. These ibooks were hidden under mattresses iaad rugs, and the good, watchful-eyed clusters never discovered them. The very 3>iety of these sisters -svas a dare to the vicious-nun ded girls to do shocking 1 One young- girl entered the convent •when a. mere child. She graduated at <2ightecn, and was married three months ^afterward, but eloped ivith a stranger -whom she ,raet upon her bridal tour tduring- tho honeymoon. The pernicious Socks which had been smug-g-led into •sthe <xmvcnt were the cause of her disordered mind and final disastrous con- Wc .are .all familiar with the sad •case of the boarding school brids who •died of morphine poisoning last year. It strikes me that too many of our Tboarding-school mistresses take it for granted that their pupils must be "perfect ladies" because they belong to j&unilies of wealth and standing. The trouble with our boarding schools is frequently in the extreme unworld- •liness of the instructors. Had I a •daughter I would rather place her un*der tie euro of a veteran coquette, who "&new human nature and the world sShoro-Jghly, than to trust her to some •woman whose brain had been educated 4o the exclusion of eyes, heart and r.n- <Scrsta.rLdJng of her kind. FOOLISH Many of the excellent women who preside over our boarding schools arc as -agnorant of human cature as babes. They never cared for .anything in lite «w much as books, and -they do not re- atliie the dangers which menace the average normal natnred girl. Teachers 3jrc the next most stupid beings to pageants in this: respect. .As for, these parents, I grow every ;yesr and day -more amazed and indig- siKnt with, their stupidity and blind ig- caErancc regarding ^ their daughters. I 'sometimes think the parents of young 3prls of this generation -crast have been cittcr idiots' or aujgijls in their had arcrased her curiosity as to what constituted her charm over men and stirred her woman's vanity. The innocence of her mind was disturbed by her 1 unfolding 1 emotions and her Eve-like desire for greater Icnowledg-c. Never did a young girl so need a mother's sympathy and counsel as this one. 1 often wonder why God permits a vsornan like that to become a mother. To send such a girl away to boarding-school was dan- 'gcrous no doubt, yet hardly as dangerous as leaving her under the care o' such a blind and stupid mother. AXOTHEK INNOCENT. I know a brilliant lawyer who was a wild boy in his youth, lie was forever in trouble of some kind with tho fair sex and finally married a girl v,-ho ran away from school to become his wife. They arc the parents of several children, the eldest a handsome, dark-eyed girl who inherits her father's love of adventure. She is only fifteen, but has already passed through a series of love affairs, k:^.own to all her friends and commented upon by strangers, but the criminally blind parents are ignorant of all this. No one dares tell them that almost daily on her way to and from the village school their daughter sees and talks to and receives notes frota young men, and, utterly forgetting their own hazardous past, both father and mother imagine their daughter to be an innocent child in mind. It might prove to be the moral salvation of this girl to send her away -to a good boarding school if the right woman presided over it. She is not vicious —she is full of animal spirits and precocious feminine instincts. Hundreds of young American girls are like her, and hundreds of stupid American parents fail to see the necessity and duty of guarding over such girls. TEE BIGHT WAT. A girl like this ought to bo treated very gently and with affection. She ought to be wisely taught and entertained. She should pass many hours in active physical exercise. The gymnasium is far better for such a girl than the boarding school. She should have no idle hours, no confidences with strange companions, no hidden books to read until she has crossed the dangerous chasm which spans girlhood and womanhood. I have known a girl who was a mere child in mind, to be forced into premature maturity by association with older and more experienced girls at boarding school. Where a number of young girls are thrown together constantly for companionship their conversation runs largely to love affairs. This young girl, who had never passed through any heart experiences, hearing so much upon the subject from her companions felt called upon to contribute her share to the entertainment. To the amazement of her parents and teachers she developed a faculty for relating tales of love adventure wherein she figured as heroine. Investigation proved the stories utterly without foundation. It was one of the abnormal developments of boarding school life. I do noi?think elopements from boarding schools are so frequent as elopements from homes. I again assert that good and wise teachers, few as they are, aro moro plenty than good and wise parents. I wish we conld have a training school for parents—a school where the physical and moral nature of the young girl and boy should be discussed, and where the imperative duty of watching over this physical and moral nature should be impressed upon the mind of every woman and man before they were allowed to procure a marriage certificate. This would be a far better thing for the world at large than the boarding school The lack of such training for parents causes more harm and mischief to go on I under their eyes than is possible in the average well ordered boarding school. So stupid are parents in regard to their own children that those whom I most desire to reach by ctns article wfll read it without a suspicion tiat it can apply to them; while many a young girl of. whom I never heard will feel her cheeks tingle and-vnll wonder how I knew her secret. "I presume that a man of your skeptical mind and iron nerve has a great contempt for people who believe in ghosts or in other supernatural terrors?" "I had such a contempt once, but I was completely cured of it years ago." "You surprise me. Hay I ask whether you healed yourself or employed the bervices of some other physician?" Dr. We3Tnouth caught the humor in the remark of the young medical student who was questioning him, and laughed. "I was cured by something worse than a physician." he replied. "-What was it?" "A human skr.ll." "Your story must be a strange one," "It is, but I will not tell it to you unless you will solemnly promise not to repc.it it." "Why so much secrecy?" "It is not necessary to satisfy your curiosity now. My reason will be plain to you when my narrative is euded." "Very well; I promise." "To give you a thorough understanding of my singular experience, it is necessary for me to recall a series of events which preceded the supe-nat- tsral horror which I shall describe. "When I began to practice medicine in a si3u.ll inland city I became acquainted with a beautiful girl, who so charmed me that I sought her society frequently. I have since learned that she then regarded me with favor, and no doubt I would have conducted a regular courtship which would have ended in a happy marriage had it not been that entirely unexpected circumstances suddenly separated us. My father was stricken with a fatal illness and my presence was required at his home in Massachusetts until his death, which took place after I had been with him six months. When I returned to the west and resumed my' medical practice I learned to my great chagrin that Miss Wilkins, the girl to whom I had been so attentive, was engaged to be married to a young lawyer named Godwin. Ho had been as rapid in his love affair as I bad been slow in mine, and J then learned the bitter lesson which many other young men who have been dilatory in courtship have also learned, that if a prompt and zealous rival appears, and iie is pretty sure to do so if the girl is highly attractive, he will win the prize during an absence of even a few months on the part of the dilatory suitor. "Of course there was nothing for me to do except to accept the inevitable. I bore my disappointment as best I could and gave assiduous attention to the duties of my profession. Meanwhile I learned that I was not the only disap-. pointed suitor, Mr. Callahan, a handsome photographer, had tried to win the hand of Miss Wilkins during my absence in Massachusetts, but he soon found that Godwin was preferred to himself. Callahan was a moody and disagreeable fellow in spite of his good looks, and 1 was decidedly glad that he had been unsuccessful. Knowing what his disposition was, I was surprised to observe that after Miss Wilkins had become Mrs. Godwin he cultivated the husband's acquaintance, and within a few months became his intimate friend. I often saw them together, and used to wonder whether Callahan was sincere in his friendship. Several years passed away and brought about interesting changes. Godwin, who was a pleasant fellow, but was not a man to heed the claims of morality when they strongly conflicted with his inclinations, fell an easy victim to the wiles of a fair adventuress. He kept his infatuation well concealed from his wife, however, and sho was entirely unsuspicious until she finally discovered his unfaithfulness in a most singular manner. One night, while Mr. Godwin was absent on a long journey, his house was entered by a burglar who went to the library and broke open a desk in which Mr. Godwin kept private papers and letters, and which was never left by the owner unlocked. In the morning Mrs. Godwin found the contents of the desk scattered on the floor, and among them a package of love letters from the adventuress. Tho cat jvas now out of the bag, and the wronged wife instituted proceedings for a divorce, which was granted. Soon after she had accomplished her object, the community was startled by the news that Callahan had been arrested on the charge of having committed the burglary. At the trial, during which the court-room was crowded, on account of the high social standing of the prisoner, his guilt was skillfully proved by a chain of circumstantial evidence. It was shown that the photographer after breaking into the house had committed but one offense. He had opened the desk and scattered the papers that he had found in it, but he had stolen nothing. The mystery was great until the prisoner confessed that he had entered the house for the sole purpose''of f urmshing Mrs. Godwin with evidence that her hnsband was untrue to her. His intimacy with Godwin had enabled him to discover where his friend kept the disreputable love letters* and then he thought out his mean plot by which he effected the scattering of the letters, so that Mrs. Godwin, for Mr. Godwin he knew was array, would be certain to discover them the nest morning. Of course the natural supposition would be that the house had been entered by a common burglar, and that before he had had tune to steal anything he had been frightened away by some >noise. But in spite of his precautions, the photographer failed to conceal his gnilt, and only a part of what he desired happened. The divorce was brought about, but Callahan's hope that he might subsequently marry Mrs. Godwin, and derive benefit from, the larjje fortune which she held in'her. own I right, was blasted, tie. had cultivated her husband's acquaintance for years, for the purpose of finding an opportunity for the gratification of his evil desires. The opportunity had at last come, but in his attempt to use it, he hod been thoroughly thwarted. "Although he had stolen nothing, the act of breaking into the house constituted burglary and he was sent to prison for a few years. It is here interesting to note that the maneuvers which brought ill-luck to Callahan brought good luck to me. Soon after he went to prison I married Mrs. Godwin and have since lived happily with her. During his imprisonment the photographer broodedover his troubles, and when be was released he w%s in a murderous mood. One evening, .while my wife and I were walking in a thinly settled district of the city, we were startled by two pistol shots fired in rapid succession by some one behind us. I turned around and running a few feet back grappled with our assailant, I threw him upon the ground, and succeeded in holding him there until two men who happened to be in the vicinity hurried to tay assistance. The villain was Callahan, who had secretly followed me and ray wife until there was a favorable opportunity for him to attempt murder. He cursed me in a frightful manner when he found that he was a prisoner. A second time he was punished by being incarcerated. Three years later, knowing that he had a disease that would soon end his life, he bequeathed his remains for anatomatical purposes to the physician of the prison, to whom ho had taken a great liking. I was well acquainted with this doctor, and as a token of his esteem he presented me with Callahan's skull, he being- well aware that I was at that time engaged in making a choice collection of skulls of all sizes. "The skull was placed in ray collection, which was kept in a closet connected with my office, and I thought no more about it until one day I was seized with the desire to see how the skulls would look when arranged so that they could all be seen at once. Accordingly I placed them in three rows on a broad table in my office, Callahan's being in the center of the 'rout row, being accorded, as it were, the place of honor. I had just seated myself in a chair for the purpose of gazing at the array in an admiring manner, when a messenger arrived and asked me to visit a patient whose symptoms had suddenly become alarming. "It was late at night when I returned to my office. I lighted a gas jet, but turned on so little gas that the flame was small. I seated myself in the chair which I had left when disturbed by the visitor, and gazed at the skulls which were about ten feet distant. They looked uncanny, unearthly, perhaps, is a better word, in the dun light. I had always prided inysolf on riot being superstitious, and had frequently laughed at friends who stood in awe of the supernatural. Lut somehow as I gazed at that ghastly array of grinning skulls, listened to the solemn tick of a great clock that rested on top of a desk, felt that I was alone and that all of the people in the city except a few watchmen were sleeping, I felt a chill ran down my back and my heart began to thump as the thought came to me that those skulls might move against me. Might not Callahan, who had tried to kill me, who had hated me intensely during his second term of imprisonment, be able to introduce his troubled spirit into his skull, marshal the spirits belonging to the other skulls, each spirit in its appropriate receptacle, arid as a horrid death's army, so to speak, swoop upon me and quickly batter out my brains. It was a fantastic, an utterly absurd idea, but it was nevertheless the kind of idea that disturbs a person when the nerves are shaky. "I soon recovered myself, however, and smiled with contempt for my mo- • mentary weakness. But the nest instant a frightful fascination compelled me to stare at the skull of Callahan. There was a slight noise in it and it actually moved a little. The lidless eyes appeared to glare and the jaws about the gaping mouth to move up and down. I sprang to my feet and, grasping the back of the chair with both hands, raised it in readiness for an attack. The skull moved again, more decidedly than before, and I trembled all over. There was a loud rattle, a big movement of the skull, It crashed to the floor and bounded to my feet, i jumped so high that my head grazed the ceiling, and as I camo down the skull shook violently, turned over, and out sprang a big rat that scampered across the floor and disappeared. "I felt sheepish enough. I had been frightened like a child by something that was as far removed from the supernatural as anything that could well be imagined. I never dared speak of the occurrc:.v;s to my friends lest the story should reach the ears of the doctors at the city hospital, and cause them to overwhelm me with ridicule. Eemember your promise, for if you should reveal what I have told you my reputation as a doctor who has an iron nerve would be lost forever."—J. A. Bolles, in Boston Budget.
