Mr. George Augustus Sala writes to a London paper :-"It is possible that with the exception of Mr. Wilkie Collins, nobody will agree with me when I say that our boys of the upper and middle classes, between the ages of fourteen and eighteen years, pass a great deal too much of their time at play. By play I mean rowing, cricket, foot ball, lawn tennis, and other athletic exercises generally. Athletic training turns out thousands of brave, brawny, healthy young Englishmen, who are utterly unable to earn their own living at home, and who, if they emigrated, could, as a means of support, only look to manual labor, in which they would have to compete with Cornish miners, Lancashire navies and Irish peasants."
