Well, boys, what uro you going to
do? lo you intend to take up a trade,
or go into a store, or try life on a rail
road or ou tho sea?
These questions you will find pre
sented 1 1 you, sooner or luter. Some
uro obliged to answer tlmm early iu life,
before they know exactly what thflques
tions mean, and before they huvo a
chance to look round und find out what
s the best thing for them to do. Hhers
unswer the qiustiou quickly, und tuke
up the first thing that oilers, whether
it in tho best thing or not. I'.wtry
young man is snro of otn thing- i i or
tuiu that l.o wants to make money iu
whatever trade he tries. What do they
ay in that shop? How much can I
nuke iu the trade? Whnt wages dues
thut r:iltoiiil or this steamboat line
Ho asks these questions, aud then se
lects tho business thut seems to pay the
highest wages with very little thought
ns to whether the business will ay him
the best wages or lint.
Now wo will lo-jk ut this thing. Y'on
want money; I hnusauds of men sll about
you huvo plenty of it, und yet not one
of them will pay yon a dollur a mouth;
you will need u good many dollars every
month as long us you live; how, then,
uro you g. iug to get it? How did these
get their money? They dug it out of
the ground; they got it from the foil fir
from tho sen, or they paid some one to
got it for them.
This makes the wholo mutter very
simple. To get wealth, property or
money you must compel some mau to
give you purt of his or you must dig it
up in a field or you must lish it out of
the sea. Y'ou could go to come man
and take his money, but somehow all
tho men seemed to havo combined and
mado laws, aud appointed policemen
and all thut sort ot thing, and tho first
thing you would find would be a lively
little trial in cour' aud four prison walls
Whutu muu has is his by lijht, and
society backs him up on his rights,
whether he owns ten cents or ten mil
lions. Now, then, can you compel tiny
man to ftivo you pat t of his money?
Simply, by doing something for him
that ho wants done. If he wants his po
tatoes hoed, if ho wauls his horses fed
and cared for, if ho wants his goods
sold, or his ships und engines guided,
you can do these things und compel him
to pay you for tho work.
Ho it comes to this: You must work
for mouoy. There is no other way.
Bravo, honest boys must work, work I
'Tis no disgrace to dig your money even
out of tho earth. It is there, und it
owos you us good a living us it docs any
other man. Go to work, theu, at once,
aud with it will. Work the way
to labor -put your shoulder to tho
wheel uud muko it revolve, and as it
tHrns couut the dollars und cents, the
contentment und happiness it brings
Money is never made by touting about
the street corners, or darting, duriu g
working hours, out of evening enter
tainments of, mayhap, a questionable
character, and into this salo.m or thut
billiard purlor ono hundred per cent,
lower und more degraded than when
yon entered. Look, thore is a boy of
perhaps some fifteen or sixteen years, or
it may be thut manhood (or more prop
erly majority) has set its weight of
twenty-one yours upon his broad, strong
shonlders, luring about the corners und
public squures, lazily pulliug tho filthy
smokoof a cheap cigar which ho his
either picked up from the dirty side
walk or been givon him by some equally
worthless companion from his month,
which looks as if soup and water and a
tooth-brush were nonentities in his world
of aimless existence, Fio I Shame
upon these worthless tramps, for all
their high-sounding titles und attributes
neatly chiseled down amount to this,
who sit or lounge about from morning
till night, with their hands idly thrust
into the woruout pockt tu of their
threadbare pants, il. pond. -i t upon the
poor old gray-haired, dim eyed father,
laden aud bent with the weight of his
threescore yours, who n. i t toil ull day
und perhaps far into the night that the
petted darling of the curb may havo
bread to eat and a roof to shelter him.
When tired out with his day's tramping
he eneps iu au hour after midnight
with his breath strongly scented with
common whisky, ai d iunoctnt as to
whether ho is upon his head or feet.
To-morrow he rises at midday and re
peats yesterday's round of occupation,
with, erhaps, this night in the station
house by way of variety. Oh I shame,
shame to you who have brought tears to
the aged eyes and bowed in heart
brenking sorrow the white heads of
your teuder, loving mothers, whoso
happiness und peace should have been
your first care, your first consideration,
and yoor first great incentive to a life of
honor and usefulness. Bnt "sufficient
to the day is tho evil thereof," aud you
can do better if yon will. You can make
home all sunshine and brightness, and
our mother's dour old heart ull joy and
gladness. You can crown your parents'
decliuitig days with prido and comfort;
you can smooth away the sharp thorns
that pierce the weary feet as they travel
on tho downward roud towards the tomb.
And in the days to come, when these
dear, dead hands will be laid low iu the
dust, und tho patient, loving hearts In
stilled forever beneath tint folded tender
hands, you will not, wo promise you,
regret the stop you have taken, the good
resolution you have made to-day.
How are you to begin ? Why go to
work, of course. That is the only way
to be truly good and happy. Yon want
money to live yourself uud to help those
around you live, und yon mut work

of gold ; iu l'cuueylvaiiiu men blast
out coal ; in New Jersey men raise
fruit ; iu Vermont men break marble
and :,lato out of thu hill i ; oil' the
ooust men let down lines and bring up
lish. Each of these can sell h's gold,
his apples, his coal, slute, lnari'le, or
cod lish, for money. Kach li.d found
some new wealth .that did not eist be -fore,
and thus, in ttiu, these uivu p row
rich without taking anything from
any one. This is wliut is meant when
it is said thut nil wealth comes out of
tho ground. Every summer the far
mors uud planters ai-o tniliious of
bushels of corn uud millions of pound
of cottcn atid tobacco. All this is new
wealth out of fio ground, aud thus it
is that tho ?outitry grows richer uud
richer every year.
Other men tuke thoe vast stores of
corn uud cotton aud ti'ansplunt them to
the const or to foreign countries, or
they feed the com to cuttle and pig-,
or weave the cotton into cloth, and
thus add still more to tint value of this
weulth. The people who buy the cattle
and tho cloth pay both the farmer and
the niuunfactnrcr, aud thus both get
Now, which of these great trades are
you going iuto '! Do you tueau to dij;
money oat of tho ground in the shape
of corn, c itton, potatoes, vegetables or
fruit? do you mean to cam money
helping to carry these things from one
place to another, or do you mean to
wolk these things over into new chapes,
und thus muko IU' tiey by adding to
their valuo ?
An apple under u tree in a Now Jersey
orchard is worth, perhaps, a ceut. Take
it to tho Washington Market and it is
worth two cents, carry it up town to a
retail store nnd it is worth three rents,
make it up into a tart nt the confection
er's and it will bring four cents. Not
ono of tho four men who handled tho
apple got more than u c ut. The far
mer hud tho first cent because Hie apple
came from u tree thut grow in the
ground ; tho expressman got u ceut for
currying it to murket, and the retail
denier paid these two cents, anil charged
the confectioner uuother for bringing it
to him. The confectioner paid tho three
cents und clnrgcd another con for
cooking the tipple. The person who
uto tho tart paid four cents at the cud.
This shows tho lelatious of the groat
trades- ugricultnro, commerce and
manufacture. Agriculture includes
farming, planting, gardening and stock
raising. Commerce includes the Irans
portution of goods from one place to
another, und the eu-huuge ,i goods,
buying aud selling. Manufacture in
cludes all the trades where men change
one thing into another, muko bricks out
of clay, shoes out of leuther, every li. iug
from oaipentry tn weaving, ship build
ing, glass making, painting, watch mak
ing. Besides theso trades are the pro
fessions where men study particular
subjects and then sell I heir know ledge
for money, nnd these include tho doc
tor, lawyers, editors und many others.
You can choose uuyono of these you
like. The United States itt the i idlest
country iu tho world. It is an agricui -turul
nation and it produces millions of
new nnd real wealth every year. It is ii
vuit country, with great rivers und a
long sea coast. All this agricultural
wealth must bo moved every year and
vast sums of money will be paid to lb"
men who cun do it. There are forty
millions of people aud they want hats
aud shoes, furniture, books and tens cf
thonsiuds of other thiugs. Never was
thero such a chttt.co offered to young
men as here. It is a big country and
there is plenty of room for every muu
able and willing to work. It may bo a
trifle dull in some pluc -s, lv.t there are
tho farms, the l ivers aud tho ruilroads
and all this great nation of penplo.
These things mean business, and some
one is going to get it. Y'on wnut a
chance, an 1 it is the aim of the Press
to take np each trade in turn and to
point ont its advantages and disadvan
tages, to show what its prospects are
and to help yon, as far as m:iy be, to
choose the ono in which you are ni' st
likely to succee I.

A Welsh Scrtnnt.
In Wales, a niuid iu servitude is con
sidered much more r 'spcetablo than the
ftic'.ory girl, or indeed any other r.irl
wh.i works with hi r hands, unless it be
the girl "in business,'' who is what
Americans politely call a "salclady,"
though in Grout P.ritian she is not in
frequently a ucller of gin and beer - or
iu other words a bar maid Bar keep
ers of lb uiiseuiiiie gender, it may be
remarked by the way, are nearly un
known iu Wales, unless au exotic of
American origin. The masculine bar -tender
of Americ.i is un outgrowth of
pioneer roughness - n condition of so
ciety in which pistols and bowie knives
were mauy. and womeu few. There is
hardly a better servuut in the world than
a really good Welsh maid. She nwre
nearly approaches the best French model
than any other I have known. Of course
she has not the training in certain pol
ished customs which tho French ser
vant has, but her deftness, alacrity and
politeuess nrt equally great. The po
liteness of a servant to n;i employer
is as clear and fair a thing as any polite
ness on earth. Its proper expression is
far removed from servility. The ser
vuut in Wales who is not polite is
thought to be lacking iu the social cul
ture befitting his or her station. The
wages of servants, while very much be
low those now so common in tho United
States, are, ns a rule, better than the
earnings of any other women on their
soc'iil plane. A situation iu a wealthy
family is something to hope for and
dream of a genuine social elevation to
the d: nghters of the humble cottagers.
