"The Savagery of Boyhood " is the striking title of an ipstructive article by John Johnson, Jr., to be published in the " Popular vScience Monthly " for Ootober, in wnich the author points out that, since a boy's development is an epitome oL the development of the human race, he naturally passes through a stage when cruelty is so characteristic that a tender-hearted boy must be deemed diseased.
