SATURDAY EVENING, MAECH 27,1880. OUR SCHOOLS. WHAT DO THEY NEED. EASTER CELEBRATION IN ROME. Hew St. Peter'a Looked When Lighted Up. The Players and Their Plays Famous Tea Drinkers. The Scheel Superintendents' Convention. Fer the IntelheejiXEK. The coming convention of county super intendents at Harrisburg will be looked forward te with mere than ordinary inter est. That there are weak points in our edu cational system, which call for immediate action, no one .will pretend te deny. It is said by European critics who have made our institutions a study that in the United States everything depends upon the elec tions. Hew true this is we all knew. And upon no branch of our national interests does the change operate se disastrously as upon the progress of education. Our growth is net steady. It has lluctuated between the ascendancy of the different political factions like the unsteady waves of ocean billows, subject te adverse gales and storms. Before wc can hope for steady and smooth sailing wc must reach the ocean level of the political sea. The school interests must be placed beyond the surge of petty politics. Se long as school officers arc elected by party interests our schools will continue te be, mere or less, a lottery in the political scramble for power. In hew many instances have we seen a man elected as school director simply because he was a strong party man and theicfore should have an office ? Hew many school-beards arc there which in reality arc nothing mere than rings? It is a fact net te be denied that any man is eligible te the position of school director who may receive the nom ination and support of the party who "runs him," and this tee without any regard te his fitness for se responsible a position. The indilfercncs of the government in this particular is the mere remarkable in asmuch as it exists in no ether department of legislation. In seeking all ether posi tions some standard of qualification is necessary if the candidate hopes te be suc cessful, but in selecting officers te direct the course of the common schools the offi cers themselves may be illiterate provided they secure the necessary majority of votes. The absurdity involved in this re lation is se apparent that comment is un necessary. Evidently, then, here is an evil that calls loudly for such a reform as will obliterate this unnatural condition. As well might wc expect a man te build a schoolhouse who had never learned the carpenter's trade as te expect one with no education te properly direct the course of instruction te be pursued in the school room. If thcic is any one point mere vital than all ethers in the welfare of the state and nation, it is the education of the future citizens of the commonwealth. If there is any one office above all ethers' sacred for the geed of the whole people, and deserving their liberal consideration, it is the office of school director ; and sooner or later this demand must be met. That there are many excellent directors giving their labors gratuitously year after year, with a devotion which exhibits the most exalted patriotism, we all acknowl edge, and it is te secure the honor which is justly their due, and often ungratefully withheld, that we insist upon a standard of qualifications for this important posi tion. Nene feel this need mere than effi cient directors themselves. Hew many cases de wc knew in which the faithful and thoroughly competent director was forced te give way te the strong party man, though incompetent, who was nomi nated and elected te fill his place ; and what a substitute he made ? Is it any wonder that foreigners point te these weaknesses and reproach us for the instability cf our educational progress ? These arc unwholesome facts, and we may as well leek them fairly in the face first as last ; as the convention is bound te de at the coming session. Anether evidence of weakness lies in our want of a national system of education, which shall be represented by a "minister of public instruction," who shall be a member of the cabinet. Here again we are behind the old world in our education al management. "We de net give our com mon schools the prominence which they deserve and must attain before they shall reach the point of excellence te which wc aim. The great need of our schools at present is permanency. The school inter ests are kicked like a feet ball from faction te faction and made subservient te the interest of politicians. Te place them be yond the reach of such influence is the educational question of the hour. M. B. A. Lititz, Pa., March 24, 1880. An Easy Death. Dr. Sam Jehnsen was a dear lever of tea, and drank it freely. On a certain oc casion he chanced te be taking tea in com pany where was present a woman who net only held the fragrant herb in holy horror, but who believed it te be "poison. She sat near the doctor, and beheld him receive his sixth cup. She had borne it thus far in silence, but when she saw the geed man about te empty another cup, after having drank five of them, she felt it her duty te speak, which she did, feelingly and em phatically : "My dear Docter Jehnsen, de you knew what you are doing ? De you knew that you are drinking poison ? If you are given te that habit you may be sure it is killing you." The burly doctor looked at her, first in amaze and then quizzically, with the wait ing cup suspended. With a reverent nod he replied : "Madam, I thank you for the concern in my welfare, but en my account you need net be alarmed. I have been many, many years at this work, and if, as you say, it is killing me, it must be an easy death te die. Let me hope that your exit may be as .vigorously healthful and as calmly placid !" And he raised the cup te his lips. A physician who had been called te at tend Fontenelle, found the great author sipping coffee. " My dear, sir, de you expect medicine can cure you while you persist in drinking the infusion of that pernicious berry ? Cef- lee, sir, is a slew poison !" "I should say slew," replied Fentsnelle, sipping away at his beverage. " L have within my own remembrance, been drink ing it daily and freely, for ever sixty years. He lived te be a hundred years old. Easter in Berne. In the old days of Reme, when the Pepe was absolute ruler, and before the present king of Italy lived there with his sweet, young wife, holy week, the last week in lent, which ends with Easter Sunday, used te be celebrated se prettily that strangers went from far and near te see the specta cle. There were all sorts of precessions in the streets, line music in the churches, ceremonies in the great basilica of St. Peter, and everybody looked happy ; for the Italliaus seemed a great deal mere like grown up children than like men and women. They are fend of all bright, pleasant things, and though it is their religion te observe the rites of holy week, the doing se gladdens them, for ether reasons. But all these ceremonies cease at the close of Easter Sunday, which is made a sort of beautiful climax te the week of celebrations. Everybody who can get there hurries te St. Peter's, the largest church in the world, you knew. There all the important religious cere monies of Hely Week take place, and everybody wants te see them. St. Peter's is en the ri;ht bank of the muddy Tiber, which flews swiftly through Berne, divi ding the city somewhat as the river Seine divides the city of Paris. The largest per tien et the town, where most et the people live, is en the left side of the river : se when they go te St. Peter's and that is very often they have te cress the bridge of St. Angcle. The Castle of St. Angele is a big, round fortress en the ether side of the Tiber ; and from there a street leads directly te the great place, or piazza, as the Italians call the curious square before St. Peter's. At each corner of the front of the church begins a grand covered walk, called a col onnade. Fer some distance this covered walk, which has four rows of handsome pillars te support the reef, comes straight from the front of the church. Then it curves out into an oval form, and nearly surrounds the open place, which would otherwise be a square. Leeking down from the reef of the church, the colonnades seem like great stone sickles, the handles joining the building, and the blades the points toward each ether inclosing the piazza. The colonnades, favorite places for the Remans te walk in when the piazza is sunny and het, are always crowded when the people arc waiting te sec or at tend any of the famous ceremonials of the church. St. Peter's itself is se big, se much big ger than any church you and I have ever seen in this country, that I am afraid yen would get very little idea of it if I should say it was G915 feet at its longest part, and 430 feet at its widest. It is" built, like most Reman churches, in the form of a cress, transept, and separate from the body of the cress, or nave, rises the great dome, which is 40:i feet from the fleer te the top. Beside this great dome, arc two lesser but net little ones, and six, I think, really small ones ; and it is the lighting of all of them which made St. Peter's se magnifi cent en Easter Sunday evening. On Easter Sunday morning, there used te be a service in St. Peter's, in which the Pepe took part. The great interior was crowded with ladies and gentlemen, the ladies all wearing black dresses and veils, and the gentlemen, evening dress or hand some uniforms. There was beautiful music, and chanting by the priests ; and after it was ever, the Pepe was lifted in his great chair of state, and home en the shoulders of men in a long precession from the church. About neon he appeared en the gallery in front of the big dome and ever the great deer of the church, and looking down en the crowds in the piazza below, gave them his blessing. This was a very pretty sight. The place was full of people ; fathers, mothers, girls and boys, babies held up their mother's arms, and little bits of toddling children, all dressed in their best, with bright color ed garments and shining chains and rings the Italians love jewelry and wear all they can get all looking bright and happy waiting patiently for the pope te come. Even the strangers who did net think as he did were glad te see him, for he was a gentle, kindly old man, and looked very handsome, standing above the people in his white robe and rich, red cloak. But the most splendid part of the festi was when, just at dusk, the whole church of St. Peter was illuminated, as you see in the picture, by forty-four hundred lamps. These were hung en all the pillars of the portico, the corners of the walls, the angles of the domes wherever, in fact, the line of light could bring out the shape of the building. Even the great cress ou the big bronze ball at the top of the large dome looked like a cress of fire. If the evening were dark, the stone walls of the building seemed te disappear, and a monster cage of flame te stand in its place. About an hour and a quarter after sun set, when the people had begun te grew tired of this spectacle, 230 workmen, in almost as little time as it takes te tell it, change the lamps for blazing torches. This was the most imposing sight of the day, and the people waited for it patiently for hours. It was well worth seeing, tee. Travelers steed in the streets, side by side with the Remans, that they might witness what they could 'never witness in their own countries. Perhaps the sight will never be observed in Reme again, because for some years before the gentle Pepe Pie Nine, died, and ever since the new Pepe, Lee X., was chosen, the custom of illumi nating St. Peter's has been discontinued. These who have seen it knew hew beau tiful it was, and hew delighted the Reman people were after spending the day in idly wandering about the city ; whole families together visiting, chattering, and enjoying the sunshine, with the illuminations, and the fireworks that sometimes rose high ever the gloomy castle of St. Angcle and fell in the dark, hurrying river. The castle of St. Angele was built by the Emperor Hadrian, for a tomb for him self and his descendants, and for a long time their remains were placed there. But when the Goths came down from Germany they turned it into a fortress without ask ing anybody's leave, and a fortress it has remained ever since. Lillian Gilbert Browne, in St. NicJwlaafer April. Emersen did attend one of Jeseph Cook's lectures at Concord, and it was suggested that he invite Mr. Cook te his house. "Ne," said Mr. Emersen, "The man who has slandered my friend, Theodere Parker I shall net invite te enter my house." AmnsementjXetes. AVhat the Players Are .Doing.

Seme of the pictures of theatrical people in the Dramatic Ncics arc about as bad as can be made. That one af Mary Andersen in a late issue looked something like Lydia Thompson, but nothing like the lady whom it was intended te represent. Havcrly's Mastodons are drawing big houses in Philadelphia, but persons who have seen them say they are no better than many smaller companies.
