Young Men oi
America Ruined by
By HON. THOMAS N. HART.
Former Mayor of Boaloa.
Our idle young men constitute one of the coun-
try's greatest dangers.
They are a menace to society. They should go
to work. Idleness ia dangerous at all times, and
among the rich young men of this country to-day it
is specially dangerous, because they have the means
and the inclination to make mischief. The colleges
turn out hundreds of young men every year who have
no aim iir^ife, no occupation and no desire to work.
Their fathers worked to earn the money they spend.
Work makes character. Idleness destroys charae-

appealed to the great Lord Vahaca
to save her; and this he undertook to
do at great risk to himself. He an-
nounced to the king that at last a son
was born—a son, the very image of
his sire, evidently favored of heaven,
and giving every promise of a glori-
ous career. The king was mad with
delight; but according to the etiquette
of the time, he must not be permitted

But it ceases to be a virtue to worship that

all matters which really conserve, it is at the same time the most radical
of all human influences, because it presumes to deal with truth than

child. The stars, he declared, forbade
the formalities of the nama-carma,
and would prevent the king from see-
ing the baby. In fact, he continued,
the brilliant career of the prince was
r.trictlv conditional. The stars decreed
that the king was not to see his son
until the latter should be grown and
married—which would be about 16
years later, according to Hindu cus-
tom. The king was deeply disappoint-
ed, but was pacified by the promise
of life and health and honor for the
prince, and so bowed to the will of
heaven. He was at liberty to arrange
for hl.i son's education—through the
premier, of course—to build a palace
for him, and to inquire about him from
day to day; but to see the child was
out of the question.
Fifteen years passed rapidly away.
The great Lord Vahaca was still in
hiB prime, the queen and her daugh-
ters were still beautiful. The sup-
posed prince was grown to woman-
hood. And now, more than ever be-
fore, all the parties to the scheme of

in our numerous asylums now how impor-
tant a rational and more finely adjusted
diet is in the treatment of patients.
Insanity is not so much an hereditary
disease as many take it to be. It is much
more hereditary than most other diseases,
because it so often depends upon actual
anatomical deformity and physiological pe-
culiarity; and because it also often depends
upon certain diseases, the effects of which may lie transmitted to off-
spring. A very large proportion of eases of insanity in our asylums are ' tal, to marry the princess, and to re-
not really hereditary, however, but are created by certain habits of life. ' 4 h,Aaa,n,r
The tendency towards these habits may be, and generally is, hereditary;
hence the misunderstanding that obtains to this day that insanity itself
is such a very hereditary disease. Many cases of insanity have a predis-
posing cause in a too-stimulating and over-proportioned diet. This leadt
to aberrations and abnormal exercises of both niiiul and body.
Experiment with the properly and the improperly fed, side by side,
both having the same micro-organisins added to food, shows that the
improperly fed tend to contract diseases of all kinds sooner than whose
who have adopted rational habits of feeding.
Doctors find no patients more difficult to cure than those who a a

Pattaly-Poura. the premier waa at hla
wits' end. What was to "be done?
Luckily, fate offered him a temporary
assistance. As they passed through
the defiles of a craggy forest, they
came upon a great giant of superhu-
man lowers. This giant had the pre-
rogative of being at any time either
a man or a woman, at will. But he
could change himself temporarily Into
a woman only when some woman, on
agreement, would suffer herself to be,
for the t;nie, transformed into a man,
so that the balance of the sexes might
Here was an opportunity. Could the
premier persuade the giant to ex
change sexes with the princess? The
great Lord Vahaca set himself to the
task, explaining the necessity of the
caae. And the giant, who was not a
bad fellow, gallantly agreed to make
the exchange for alx days only, to
please the fair princess. Hear in mind,
the giant did not become a princess,
nor the princess a giant. There was
no exchange of personality, only In
stead of a princess and a giant there
were now a genuine prince and a
giantess. There was little change in
the appearance of the two, and no one
suappcted anything of the strange
compact between them.
The light-spirited prince now led
his soldiers Into the city of Pattaly-
Poura and up to the royal palace. The
king was Impressed with the formid-
able character of the army, and espe-
cially with the appearance and de-
portment of the manly young prince.
The latter fell in love with the prin-
cess at sight, and she lost her heart
as soon as she beheld him. There was
a bold, passionate demand for her
hand, which was conceded at once.
Hut the wedding must be celebrated
on the morrow. How very sudden!
What an ardent wooer! Could he not
wait at least a week or two? The
prince Hhuddered, but stood firm. Not
a day's delay would be permitted.
All things are allowed to lovers. The
city of Pattaly-Poura Improvised a
wedding of oriental splendor. For
four days It was mad with delight.
Illuminations, music, parades, dances
and feasting filled the hours. The
prince determined to leave the do-
minions of his father-in-law in short
order. No, no. It was useless to talk.
Not another day could he remain; not
From the ecstasies of those days he
turned to his dark future. On the
sixth day he found himself, with his
sweet bride, in the rocky forest where
the giantess was awaiting him. Would
his bride be a party to the terrible se-
cret of his life? Must he and his moth-
er and sisters and the great Lord Va-
haca all sufTer death when they uhould
be at her mercy? Could he exchange
his proud young manhood, so lately
possessed, for the inferior estate of
woman? He must. The giantess,
doubtless, was awaiting him. impa-
tient to return to her own proper self.
Hut where was she? How he dreaded
to meet her!
Ah, she comes! Hut how? Not with
impatient, stern demand. Not with
stately tread. Simpering, giggling, she
comes, to make a statement and prop-
osition. Within the past five days she
has had several visits (giggle) from a
giant who happened along (te-he!).
He had talked and talked with her.
and—and he had fallen in love with
her (giggle), and she had with him.
And now, would the young prince be
willing, for any consideration—to
make their temporary exchange of
sexes a permanent arrangement?

The proper thing for a royal father
to do, in that day, was to raise a
large army, place his son at the head
of it, Invade the realm of some neigh-
boring potentate, and demand the
daughter of the latter. King Nihla-
Keton followed the custom. He had
heard of the beauty of a certain prin-
cess of Pattaly-Poura. She must be
the bride of his son. Troops were
gathered in the city of Barty-Poura,
and tho supposed prince was ordered
to lead them to the neighboring capl-
turn for the royal blessing.
With a faint heart the poor prin-
cess of Anga-Dessa determined to
carry out her part as best she might,
to save herself and her mother from
exposure and destructloa. But the
premier must go alonv with them.
This was granted. The Lord Vahaca
had his own head to save, and must
make a success of the expedition in
some way. And as the army set out,
at its head and arrayed In the garb of
a prince, rode the luckless maid,
while all Bary-Poura rang it>i
cheers, and only the poor king was
denied the pleasure of seeing the
adored leader. A they drew nigh to
