Fact and Rumor.
Here is a brief extract from Mrs. Livermore's lecture on "The Boy of the Period:" "He comes into the world occupying a position such as no boy ever occupied before. He feels very speedily all the goldenness of the place he occupies. He intends to be wealthy and successful. If he does not see his way clear to the top-most position at the outset he cuts loose and goes West. We have so much of wealth and pleasure that the boy's appetites and pleasures are unduly stimulated, and before he is aware of it they master him. Temptations surround him such as his father knew not of, and in a great city he will find it difficult to see the dividing line between right and wrong."
