HE BROKE UP THE SCHOOL.
"Tlmt Is tliu no school houso. is Itt"
inntilrcil MiiM Aliuo Itav. tlio "now
tuacher,'' an tho farmer's plodding littlo
Icnm passed by a littlo wliito lioueo
stnndititr oud wise to the road, inclosed
ii :i ruuiur iiuiiimiaieii lencc.
"Yes, tlieros where von'll hold
forth,'1 remarked Untile Zeko Wood
burn, "but I'm nfcord you won't hold
out long, for wo'vo got tho toughest
set of boys in tho State," nnd Undo
.eke gavo a kind of crackling littlo
laugh as ho thought of tho timid, do
tntiro littlo damsel at his sido control
ling tho boyH of Hear creek school.
"liut uon t tlio directors expel them
when they aro beyond tho control of
the teacher?1' asked Alice, her
heart beginning to sink at tho pros
pect before her.
"Jiixpel 'em I no, wo never expel no
body ; if a teacher can't boss tho sohool
wo just let it boss him ; it am t our
fight, an' tho sohool hero generally
bosses tho teacher, and thar's been
somo pretty good men licked in that
school house by the boys.''
"1 unl not know tlio school was so
unruly," said poor Alice, wishing
heartily that sho had hired out ns a
washerwoman instead of trying to
teach tho savages of Hear creek.
"Oh, well, mebbe it won't bo so bad
this winter ; thar's Jim Turner, he's
ono of tho toughest of 'em ; ,ho'll bo 21
in a month, and you 11 get rid of him ;
but thar's tho lJrindloy boys, they're
mighty nigh as bad"
Poor Alice listened with a sinking
heart. The cold, hard duties before
her were dreary enough at best ; but
to go alono and unknown into a strange
neighborhood to teach her first sohool,
and to bo met at the outset by such
dark prophesies, made her feel home
loss indeed. Sho was naturally a tim
id, shrinking little thing, and if bIiu
had possessed any whero on tho whole
broad earth a roof to shelter her sho
would have turned back from her Boar
creek school even then, liut sho bad
no home. Her mother had died when
sho was but 14, and sho had kept house
for her father two years, when lie died,
leaving her all alone. Before he died
he advised her to expend the little sum
he would bo able to leave her in fitting
herself for a teacher, and Alice had
fulfilled his directions so literally that
when sho had completed her course at
normal school she had hardly SlO left,
and when she paid Uncle Zeko for
hauling her and her little trunk from
tho nearest railroad town to the dis
trict where she was to teach she had
bu- So left.
On Monday morning when she start
ed for the school house she fi-lt as if
she was going to the scaffold. Her
course of pedagogics in tho normal
i.istitule had included no such a prob
lem as ibis school promised to be, and
if it were not for the very shame she
would have given her single $5 bill to
any one to take her back to the rail
road and pay her faro to L., tho town
whero she had attended school.
When Bhe arrived at ihe school
house about twenty or thirty pupils
were grouped around talking, but a
spell of sileuco foil upon them as she
walked up and saluted them with a
"good morning" which was moic like
tho chirp of a frightened bird than
anything else. As sho unlocked tho
door and entered what sho had alroady
begun to regard as a chamber of tor
ture, two or three slowly followed her
into tho room, and depositing their
books upon the whittled desks, took
seats, and fixed their eyes upon her
with a stare that did not help to
strengthen her nerves.
All tho rules and regulations of her
"Theory and Practico of Opening
school on tho irst JJay scorned to
vanish and leave her head whirling in
dizzy helplessness. Sho tried to think
of some cheerful remark, but her brain
refused to lorm tho thought and her
tongue clovo to tho roof of her mouth.
She could seo in tho faces of her pu
pils, raost of whom wero now in tho
schoolroom, that they wero aware of
hor fright and enjoyed it thoroughly.
By a strong effort sho partly reoovered
herself and bravely resisted tho tempta
tion to lean her head on tho desk and
have a good cry. Sho felt that Bhe
must do something or faint, so ehe
rang the bell, though it lacked fifteen
minutes of 9. Sho began taking down
tho names and ages of her pupils, and
by tho tirao this was completed she
began to feel more at case. Sho then
began examining the pupils in their
different branches in order to assign
them to their proper classes. Sho had
finished tho examination in all the
branches except the advanced readiug
class, which was principally composed
of grown girls aud young men, among
whom was tho teniblo Jim Turner, of
whom she had been warned.
Soveral of tho members of tho class
lind read, and it was now tho turn of
Moses Bradley, a huge, heavy-set fel
low, with small, malicious eyes and n
genoral air of ruffianism. When ho
was called upon to read hu did not
rise from bis seat, but began to read in
n thick, Indistinct voice from a book
hidden in his lap.
"Mr. Bradley, will you please stand
up when you read V asked Alice.
"I can read juBt aa well sittiu'
down," roplted tho fellow, witli a dog
"But it in ono pf the ru,lcs iu a reading
class to stand up to read," said Alice,
her heart quaking with fear ns sho
foresaw tho incipient rebellion,
"I reckon you will havo to make a
now rulo for mo then," impudently an
Bwered Mose, glancing sidownys nt his
companions with a grin of triumph.
"If you do not obey mo I shall bo
obliged to punish you," said Alico
bravely, though sho could scarcely
"I guess nil tlio punishing you could
do wouldn't break any of my bonos,"
replied the rullian, leering at her im
pudently. "But I can break your boties for
you in half a minute, nnd I'll do it if
you don't stand ami read as the teach
er asked you to," said n voice nt tho
other end of tho class, and Alioo look
ed iu that direction and saw Jim Tur
ner step from tlio class and faco aston
Mosu's insolent manner abated in un
instant, bis faco turned pale, and ho
muttered something about not being
" bossed by other boys," but he stood
up ns ho was commnuded.
Alico could hnvo kissod her young
I champion for gratitude, but sho mus
tered all tho dignity sho could com
mand, and said :
"Mr. Turner, I cannot nllow you to
interfere in tho management of my
school i tako your seat."
The youth obeyed without n word,
but kept his eye on Mose, as if watch
ing for any delinquency. After this
littlo cpisodo the exercises proceeded
without interruption till noon.
Alico hud no appetite for dinner.
She leaned her throbbing head upon
tho desk and wondered wearily how
long sho could enduro this.
Sho was aroused by ono of tho littlo
girls running up to her, exclaiming :
"Teacher, teacher, tho big boys aro
fighting 1" Sho followed tho child, ex.
claiming, "Oh, why did I over como
into such a den of wild beasts 1" At
tho rear of tho school house stood Jim
Turner engage! in n hand-to-hand
combat with Moso Bradley nnd his
two brothers, both of whom wero
grown. As Alico stepped around tho
corner Jim sent Mose reeling to tho
earth and then turned liko a lion upon
his two remaining assailants. Tlioy
rushed nt him from two sides, but Jim
wns ns nctivo ns a panther, Bill Brad
ley fell as if shot, from n left-handed
blow, and his brother Tom followed
him in an instant. By this time Mose
had secured a ball bat and rushed for
Jim, but tho latter evaded tho blow,
and wrenching the bat from his hand
knocked Moso headlong with a blow of
As tho discomfittcd trio arose Jim
laughed lightly, and asked them "how
they liked it as far as as they had got,"
picked up tho bat ho had taken from
Moso and called out, "Come on, boys,
let's havo a gamo of ball."
Tho combat ended so quickly that
Alice had no chanco to interfere, but
sho felt that it would not do to let this
open violation of school rules pass un-
punisncu, so sue rang mo ueu. w lien
pupils wero assembled sho called the
culprits up to tho desk, and asked what
tho light was about and who began it.
Tho Bradloys stood sullen and silent,
but Jim answered, "I would rither
not tell what it was about, but I began
it by knocking Mose Bradley down."
Alico knew tho fight was tho result of
I un s espousal of her cause in the read
ing class, and her voice faltered as she
said : "Then I shall have to punish
you ; hold out your hand."
Jim obeved her instantly, blio took
up tho ruler with a trembling hand
aud began the punishment. Jim's faco
never changed a muscle. Tho look
upon it was obedience in which there
was no trace of either bravado or sul
lenness. As Alice inflicted tho blows
on the hand so quietly held out to her,
the thought rushed upon her mind that,
she was smiling tho only hand thai
had been raised to befriend her in that
Her face grow pale, the blows fell
falteringly, the tears began to run
down her cheeks, the ruler fell from
her hand, she sank into her Heat, buried
her faco into her hands, and burst into
a storm of sobs.
Then Jim's countenance changed
His lips quivered, ho dashed his baud
across his eyes to clear them of unuaL
ural dimness, and the great lump in his
throat seemed to choke him. A chuck
le from Moso Bradley recalled his self-
possession, however, aud ho took
step or two toward the latter with eyes
that fairly blazed with hot indignation
Mose rapidly retreated a step or two,
aud his chucklo died an untimely death,
and for a full minute silence reigned
over the school room. At last Alice rais
ed her head and iu a broken voice dis
missed the pupils to tho nlav ground.
As tho children passed out she heard
somo say, "ao you vo got a whipping
after all, Jim," and Jim's reply, "Yes,
and I've got enough to pass somo of il
around if anvbody is anxious about
t 1 o'clock Alice rang tho bell with
a feeling ot utter despair; but no
tichool ever moved more smoothly than
did her school that afternoon. Umet
obedience, study, good lessons, and re
spectful attention vwero universal. But
Alico had determined to quit tlio
school ; she felt as if sho would rather
be the poorest washerwoman than to
bo badgered, bullied, aud tortured for
months at a limo by a set of brutal
ruffians, whoso parents employed, her
for the sole purpose ol enduring tins
So when Alico locked tho school
house door that ovening it was with
mingled feeling of humiliation' that sho
started to offer her resignation to tho
directors. As sho left tho school house
sho saw Jim Turner a few yards ahead
ot her walking rapidly toward homo.
Sho called his name, and hn respectful
ly waited until she had ovei taken him
"Mr. lurner, sho said, "t in going
away in tho morning, and I wish to
thank you for your bravo defense of
me Lt tho school to day, and to ask
votir forgiveness for tho punishment so
unjustly inflicted on you,'' and in her
earnestness Alico held out her trom
bling littlo hand, aud Jim instantly
"I havo nothing to forgive," said he
"you could not do otherwise and
neither could I : but you aro surely

The rabbit is probably the most pro
luetive of the whole rodent genus ; a
single pair may be answerable for a
population of half a million within five
yeais. Uriginaiiy natives ol Spain,
the rabbits once multiplied in that
country, as well as in some of the
islands of tho Mediterranean, in such
an alarming manner that tho people ap
pealed for military aid to assist in their
destruction. And it was not until num
bers of ferrets and weasels wero intro-
iueed that tho rabbit population began
to diminish. Tho quadrupeds of Aus
tralia are chiefly of tho "marsupial'' or
der ; aud from the great kangaroo
down to tho wombat and kangaroo rat
(both burrowere) nearly all of tho tribe
aro herbivorous. Tho dingo, or native
log, is destructive only to sheep, while
the wildcat, though pretty common in
some parts, is not generally prevalent.
When, thertore, the rabbit was first
landed in Australia tho laud was all be
fore him where to choose. In tho offi
cial Sydney market rato for January,
1873, tho price ot rabbits was quoted
from 2s. Cd, to 4s, each, retail. Five
or six years later they were looked
upon as aggressivo nnd destructive ver
min, and had bo raptdiy overrun large
tracts of land as to beconio quite n

is not only regarded as of vital interest

Tlio figures nnd fnoU of tho fifty
fourth annual report of tho Eastern
Penitentiary nro worthy of study. Thb
report gives tho statistics of tho year
1883 nnd tho condition of tho institu
tion on tho first day of tlio current
year, 1 ho receptions during tho year
numbered 400, or i3 moro than during
1882, an increase largely in oxcess, pro
portionately, of tlio increase of the pop
ulation whose convicts aro thero lodged.
This is an indication either that n large
number of tho graver crimes were com
mitted, or that bocauso of greater
watchfulness on tho part of tho officers
of tho law n larger number of convic
tions wero secured.
There wero 107G prisoners in tho in
stitution on tlio 1st of tlio year. Of
tho 490 ndmitted during the year, Phil
adelphia furnished 300, Lackawanna
10, York 14, Cumberland 13, Lycom
ing and Luzerne 12 each, and Lebanon
10, while 20 were sent from tho Uni
ted States district court. This noto is
not n bad showing for our county,
which has a much larger population
than any of tho others named, except
Philadelphia almost equal to any two
of them, in fact. York witli its 88,
000 and Cumberland with its 40,000
are almost exclusively agricultural
counties nud theso aro goncrnlly sup
posed to nflord a much smaller percent
age of criminals than counties wherein
tlio people aro mainly dependent upon
mining and manufacturing. Lacka
wanna furnishes a goodly share for
ono so young.
Philadelphia was the birthlaco of 103
of tho 490 received ; Germany, of 30 ;
Ireland of 28, nud England of 11.
These figures do not seem to warrant
tho frequent plea tlmt our criminal class
es are drawn almost exclusively from
our alien population, and it will bo a.
surpriso to some to learn that the Fath
erland was moro numerously represent
ed in the total than Erin, and, that,
while we have many times moro Irish
than English emigrants, Juhuny Bull
has nearly half as many convicts as the
land of the shamrock.
Of tho 490, not far f i om half, or
202, had been previously imprisoned,
one fifteen times, ono ten times, one
eight times, two seven times, five six
times, and eight five times.
Hero is the plainest evidence that
our prisons are yet far from being re
formatory institutions. It is not by
any means certain that any prisons can
be. So long, however, as nearly half
of those who are once sent ihete aro
liable to go back, there is room fur be
lief that there is a wide margin for im-
piuvemeiii in our system oi managing
convicts. This subject has engaged
tho attention of many thoughtful men,
and much has been written upon it.
There are two schools of prison re
furmer. one of whom advocate the in
dividual method ol Ireatmeut and the

One other matter alluded to in tho
report will evoke surprise. Of tho 490
oulv hvo were rated as intemperate,
whilo 101 wero total abstainers, tho
balance belonging to tlio moderate
drinker's phalanx. These figures will
not bo welcomed by those hot headed
reformers who argue at hap hazard that
practically all crime is directly trace
able to drunkeness. The fact is that
many of tho moio serious orders of
crime are such as to require cool heads
and steady hands, to which an excess
ivo use of stimulants would not con
duce. Profesional forgers counteifeit-
ers, burglars and cracksmen of all sorts
aro nowadays more devoted to the doo
trino of total abstinence than many of
those who profess nnd preach it iu elo
pient periods trom tho Btiimp.
