Hew I Syrian Bays narfe Geed Beeaase Ciiizeas ef Ike Vailed Stale. Among those who will graduate from the public schools this week are two Syrian boys, Samuel Maroon and Joseph Maroon, aged 24 and 21 years respectively. They have been in our schools through the seventh, eighth and ninth grades and about all tbeir educaticn was obtained in St, Johnsbury. Tbe story of tbeir life and their struggle to get an education is a most interesting one. Samuel Maroon was born near Tripoli in Syria, whicb is a part of the Turkish empire, and when about 14 years old was bred wub tbe desire to come to America. Some of bis friends bad been across and told bim great things about this country, and though bis parents at first objected they finally consented and gave bim enough money to pay his passage to New York. He started from home alone and the government officials had no idea he was going to the United States else they would have forbidden bim to leave the country. He took a steamer Irom Beirut to Alixandria in Egypt, and after visiting Cairo, sailed tor Marseilles. He stayed there a week and was almost homesick enough to re turn home, but Dually decidtd to keep on bis way and went to Paris and thence to Havre where be engaged passage on a liner lor New York. He found friends on shipboard and landed in New York after being a month from home and with $6 in his pocket. He could speak only the Syrian dialect and bis first surprise was that people had to work for a living in the United States. He bad been deceived into thioking tht.t money was so plenty tbat nobody worked, and in one week all bis money was gone and he had not found employment. Then he found some friends who bad a wholesale store and tbey advanced bim $25 worth of goods end be started out as a peddler selling Yankee notions. He soon made enough money to pay for his first outfit and bought some more goods and started through New bngland. In nine months he bad made enough mony so that he was enabled to send back bis passage money to bis tatber in Syria. Then he bought a team and added clothing to his line of goods. After two years ot travel as apeddlar be entered the employ ot a New York jewelry brmand sold bigb class goods to customers of the firm. .As business prospered he sent for bis younger brother Joseph. The latttr was not as enthusiastic about coming and bad to run away in tbe night to escape tbe lurktsb officials wbo were looking for any emigrants to America. - He bought bis passage ticket of an agent who received a large graft in the transaction and thereby guaranteed to get him to Alexandria. He rowed to the boat two miles in the night in a heavy storm and in tbis trip lost all his belong mgs. When he reached New York he told tbe custom house officials tbe name of the firm his brother worked for and he was passed along as a desirable new comer. Ihe two brotbers worked to gether, as tbey have ever since, and osepb went to school in the sixtb grade at Wbiteheld, N. a., one term. ' Alter a year he entered tbe Lisbon public school where be remained a year, working bis way by selling goods out of school hours and in vacation time. Then he went to Boston and entered the night school for a term. The brothers came to St. Jobnsbury, about three years ago and have support ed themselves by selling oriental goods, Tbey have proved apt pupils, though they have bad to study very bard to keep up with the other scholars who had earlieryears in school and who are so much more familiar with the English language. Samuel is tbe literary scbolar and bas sent his father a story of tbe discovery of America, bringing bis historical poem down through the revolutionary war. He has also trans lated tbis into bnglisn in metrical form, Tbe boys expect to return to Syria this summer to buy more goods to return in the fall and complete tbeir education. Both are American cit'zens, having been naturalized here at the December term ol court. Joseph expects to study medicine and after getting his degree will spend a year in Latro and then locate in the country ol bis adoption, bamuel will also remain in tbis country and engage in the mercantile business. During their stay in St. Johnsbury they have made many friends by their genial manner, and their perseverance to over come all obstacles. Tbeir history is an example to every American boy to im prove the opportunities which bis inheritance in a free country has given bim. A Choice Concert.
