THE EVENING GAZETTE: MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27 1833. "THE vroKi.rt owes me a living" is the remark of man throughout recorded time, but it is an awfully bi* yarn. The world owes no man anything. Why should it? We beg pardon; it does owe the paralytic, the cilpple, .the insane and others who are by birth or misfortune incapacitated for work, and it cheerfully pays its debt, provid- ' ing asylums where they are cared for. But the man born with arms, body, legs and brain. In wealthy condition should ba ashamed to ask charity of anybody. "The world owes me a living" for what? Some men of the George stripe talk to the effect that land shall b« divided, thus saying, You shall not be Industrious and economical and save up for your children whom you tenderly love; butthey shall botnraedout and take chances with the children of the improvident and the vicious." If It were so that a generation existed and all passed out of the world together, and then another people came here' and took possession and - lived out ita time, each generation finding the woild unoccupied, it mlRht be sensible to talk about division of land, and the world owing » living. Moses said, speaking for God, that the •Ins of the father shall be visited upon the children, and there is no fact of natural science more true than this. If ft father is provident and lays up property', his children enjoy. It, before and after his death; if he Is Improvident, they do not enjoy|either before or after. To talk about grabbling from a man who has honestly earned property IB to talk aa thieves and robbers talk. "In the sweat of thy face shall thou eat bread," said God to the In eden after the fall. The owes a man not one cent If he Is industrious and will work, he can support himself and his family, If he have one. If he is Idle mul dissol.Htfl, he can't, and there is all there is about it. And men of the George strip*, and all Socialists find Anarchists may talk until their vocal chords cease to vibrate, and still there wilt he honesty oppugn in the world to prevent any adoption of such wholesale thievery as to take from him that hath and give to him that hath not. The world Is not responsible for a man's being; the only parties • responsible are bis father and mother. If his parents fall to provide for him, then thatjrids the matter.'The world is the aggregate of humanity, but free moral agency and brain and Brawn place responsibility for action upon the individual. "We'd like, first rate to have some of the broad actes of old earth and some of its yellow gold; wouldn't care if we had lots of it; butjthe world don't owe us a •Inglejfoot of land we fall to earn, or a . single nlckle we don't work for; nor will It give it to us, eituer.

If one finds work too hard In one place, he can go to another, where the struggle la not so hard; bnt go where he will, he finds it just the same, viz., that h« who will not work will got nothing. The reward of labor is direct, and without reward there'd be precious little labor. 'When that Incentive is removed, the world will have nothing with which to pay any debt. ; THE STEADILY growing taste and the .consequent demand for the best productions In the musical art, have been the means of bringing to public notice recently some of the 'best book- collections of piano-music ever published. A -very handsome book, In every way worthy of its name, is "The Classical Pianist,' a large, fully edited collection of many of the modern "c'assic" gems,' all being within thg ability of ordinary piano-players, and suitable, also, for teachers' use. In size, shape and style. It is similar to that other book, "Piano Classics," which has become so popular. Every piano-player should examine "The Classical Pianist" It Is large, sheet music size, clearly printed, nicely bound and contains nearly 160 pages of choice music by eminent composers,—Liszt, Rubinstein, Jensen and many others. The publishers will send a descriptive circular concerning this or any other of taeir books, free. Tfie price of "The Classical Pianist" is 81; and it will be seat to any address, post-paid, for that price, by OUver Ditson & Co., Boston, Mass. Th« Maine Statesman PaU HU Pnrpoee Plain Enonjh tor Everybody to Understand— Wottlda't Accept a Nomination If It Wan Offered, and His Eeawns Tber«- fol—HI* Future Movements. Niw YotiK, Feb. 27.-The Bumiay World contained a three-column interview with Mr. Blaine, which had been cabled from Floreuoo by T. C. Crawford, for some time Tbe World's correspondent In Washington and now In Euroi». Mr. Blaine, in the course of a long conversation, distinctly assented that nnder no circumstances whatever, would he allow his name to ba as«d in connection with the noit presidential nomination. H< insisted on the sincerity of his withdrawal, and asierted that he made up bis mind thereto long ago. He consldars, flrst, tbat any man whose name has been associated with a defeat in a presidential campaign owes it to his party not to allow himself to ba renomiuated; and, secondly, he Is unequal to facing the fatigues, worry, and excitement of another canvass, all the more as be would feel himself bound to work as hard as on previous occasions. Mrs. Blaiue and the other members of his family are n.ost emphatic in their approval of his withdrawal, which is deDoitlve and neither hasty nor receut In Its decision. Mr. Blaine will not return from Enropa until June, and not until after the Republican convention. He declines to eipress himself on the oubjoct of the Republican candidates In the flald, bnt asserts that he did not retire in favor of any particular ono of them. He is convinced of a Republican victory, basing bin conviction in particular on the tariff question. . i. , When Mr. Blaine was asked the direct question whether ho would, under any dr-. cumstances, permit his name to be used again as a i-andidate, he replied In the most emphatic negative, but then added: "I do not wish to make any new affirmations upon the subject. I have said all that I wish to say upon this subject in that letter. That letter, you must know, was not a haphazard, off-hand aft ah-. It was the result of muchdeliunratlon and careful thought You will remember tbat I told you In Paris last December that I had no intentiofi of being a candidate again, and that I had practically made up-my mind at tbat time to forbid the use of my name in the approaching conven- "1 hold," he said later In the con versa tion, •that I have no right to b« a candidate again" A man who has ono* been the candidate of hte party «nd defeated owes It to his party to withdraw and not be a candidate a second time. More than this, there Is another plain reason for my withdrawing. J could not go: through the burden and fatigue of another presidential canvass—suoh a one as tho canvass of the last campaign. To accept a nomination and to do less than before would be impossible,*. ._„ __. ._ "Toward the dose of my last call I asked Mr. Blaine when he Intended to return to .America. He Bald that he expected to reach New York about the last of June. He expected to spend the late spring in London. He has not yet determined upon his movement*. After leaving Florence he will probably go straight to England from Italy. He said, with an air of frankness not to be mistaken: 'You have no idea what a relief it Is to me to think I am now out of the canvass, and. that when I come back to New York In the summer tbat I shall not be going back there to face reception after reception, aud to en- Btaee Tal«-nl In Totn—K«Hdlne« Which I.lltlr One« Ix-«rn ThiOr Wonderful Mrmory Coix^rnlne With 1'arU.

The oil lid was a pretty girl of 8 years, and she was ln-lnn arrayed III a coarse, dark gown to represent Little Buttercup In "Pinafore." "It la always BO," commented Mr. Joseph W. Ilorner, the costumer, to a reporter who happened to be present. "I've been nt this business thirty-flve years, nnd I havr.n't yet found the child who did not object to appearing In dark, or coarse costumes." "The costumes the little girls enjoy most," added Mr. Homer, "are those that are brilliant; the brighter and more sparkling they are the better tho children nre pleased, while a somber dress seems to have a bad elTect on them nt ouce. Th« boys like soldier clothes best nnd sailor suits next. The glila always take n great fancy to a tr«ln gown, and when they represent birds of long plumage they pay particular attention to it. I have watched them very closely and have noticed, too, how peculiarly old fashioned girls nre in every instance, nnd how they are all attention to the Instructions given them, requiring much less effort In this respect than boys. Some of the most elegant cos- | tnmes worn by girls of 0 to 8 years are those of the style of Louis XFV for the minuet. In this they wear dresses of the finest quality of figured silk, with prided BleeveS, and trimmed with gold and Bll- ver. These costumes cost often ns high as $75 each. Klcgurt suits for the boys are made of silk velvet, square cut.. Tlmy include sword, jeweled buckles and trimming of pink silk and velvet. Such a suit complete is worth $100. They ore for the minuet ulso. Fairy costumes are made of lighter material, but are often trimmed with lace and embroidered in gold and silver. "How young have yon known children to appear In private theatricals or on the professional stage?" "As early as 2 yeare of age. I remember a girl of this age who-commltted eight verses to memory and recited them nt a Sunday school entertainment. She did not break down once, and her pronunciation was correct throughout. At a fnlry play In a hall of this city, at which a school took part, there was a girl of 8 years who remembered her part all through and did the stage business well. She also sang in an operetta." ' "What, is tho best ago for teaching children to act?" "For girls, 7 or 8 years. The brain at that time lupins really to develop and is most susceptible. Boys must be 10 years "Old before they can do anything cute, or smart on the stage. That is my actual experience, and Fvo taught at least 2,000 children for stage appearances. My idea is that a child's soul Is as mature as a grown person's. The penetrating gaze of children seems to me to show this." "What parts are in?" ' "Pathetic and singing parts. Comedy In children is very rare. In fancy pieces, those written especially for children, the boys do as well aa girls, but the girls learn their parts and seem to understand what IB wanted ot tliem much more quickly than boys. They do not forget, while the boys do. The toys will leave out lines. The parts must be fairly thtlmped into them. I recall one remarkable piece of work by a girl of 8 years that will show; you how apt they are. The play was "The Tempest,", and a number of children were to act It for eome charitable Institution. Tho girl who was to take the part of Ariel wns 15 years old. At noon on. the day the play wus to be given she met with un accident that rendered her appearance impossible. Our only hope was a child 8 years old, who we knew was bright enough to read the part. We saw her that afternoon and asked her to read the part. Slie had been on the stage before in private theatricals, and had done very well. She refused to read, but said she would learn the part. There were 200 lines and seven or eight entrances. She began at i} o'clock, and by the time tha curtain was rung up had committed tho part completely to memory. Why, on tho stage she recited it as readily as if it hod been an everyday occurrence with her. Bhe was the child of poor parents. JhavO seen great big girls of 14 or 15 cry and snivel over their part when younger ones would get along without any difficulty. I remember a noteworthy case where I had seventy young girls In a tableau. The girl In it representing the Spirit of Death was only 10. I gave them their positions, and told them to leave the stage, come back nnd take exactly the same places again. They did it without a single error." "How long does it take to prepare a child to take a part?" ~ "For a play six rehearsals, as a rule, are su'fflcient and for a tableau cue rehearsal Is enough. In a tableau of a gypsy dnnco not long ago I placed the children In position, hand and foot raised as if dancing, and then dismissed them. Two days later they all took the same- posltlons without a word of instruction. An Interesting cose was that of a score of children whose ages ran from 8 to 18, and who were governed as to their positions on tho stage by different lights, one position for blue, another for red and so on. Not one missed after the first rehearsal, and the little ones were Just as apt as the older ones and were, besides, often first to take their places." • "Do many of the children become professional actors?" • . • "No? These little private performances are done for the amusement ot friends, and parents are delighted to see their children in them, bnt when the children .aro wanted for tho professional stage the parents object at once. There is no Instance that I know of where a child has been cultivated at so early an age for the stage; nor do I know of a woman who became a brilliant actress from a smart child on the stage. I do know, however, of boys who were bright In tills respect who have become good actors. The child who In 1850 made such a hit as Eva la "Uncle Tom's Cabin," when it flrst came ou, is an example of what I tell you.

BeasW, birds and in- secta nre regarded with superstitious four or favor, nnd when nny object hn.s its mention In Scripture tho popular belief in its good or evil influence is materially strengthened. The ox find the ass, as appearlnR frequently in tlie Bible, are always highly regarded, nnd, ns It Is the general belief, that our Saviour selected the ass to ride upon on account of the cross on his back, that animal is looked upon with signal esteem. It Is considered lucky to have one of his species in ft field with cattle, ns the mark of the cross la a certain safeguard against malicious witch or wanton fairy. But this fominato animal can do mors than ward off evil'spirits. He can tell Christmns as unerringly as a schoolboy, and every Christmas eve he falls down at midnight and brays three times in honor of the approaching dawn. If this fact b« doubted there are always plenty of witnesses who have kept awake to see tho occurrence and who have scon It frequently. The cock is regarded with similar reverence on account of the ecene between Christ and St. Pet«r, and is believed to be as well aware of the Joy of Christmas as the ass,'and in consequence crows during a good part of th« nine nights proceeding the Christian festival. The "crowing of a hen, that at any other time would be a most, unlucky omen, is then all right, as it Is then supposed to share in the Joy of the cock at the coming of Christ man.

It is said to have eaten' the core • of the apple thrown away by Eve, and to thl« day a strong smell of apples is perceived when it is cnmhed, for it is always to be crushed by a stone or lump of iron, which must bo hurled at the vermin, as otherwise the devil's essence would be conveyed through; any medium of wood or leather held in the destroyer's hand. Iron and stones are deemed non-conductors. The Irish boys and women, when they throw the stones, generally exclaim; "Ma Bhoclit pn c a ngns nnr jmca morrio nrlh"— i. e« "My seven xlns and my deadly sin upon you." The allusion in the exclamation is to another legend, which claims that tho dara dael acted as a spy upon Christ and told his enemies where he went. Judas, on his way to betray Christ, is said to have met n number of dara daels, who turned up their tails to Indicate tha way the Saviour had gone. The lizard—in Irish, alre luichair, which literally translated means "the pig of the rushes"—is held in esteem for its curative powers. When caught, the per-: son who is anxious to receive the curative power,tak^es tho aire luichair In his hand, licks the creature all over—head, feet, belly, legs, sides and tall; and the tongue of the person who thus licks the nire lui- chair is said ever afterward to possess the) power of taking the sting and pain out of a burn.
