TBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
. Loitdoit, February 16. Copyright
'Some time ago I had occasion to send a
3ong dispatch concerning a certain dark and
fascinating prince who, called himself
George Eristoff De Gourie. He had fallen
in love with Mrs. Frank Leslie. She ad
mired him, and the Marquis DeLeuville,
himself an unsavory character, had felt
displeasure; and, forgetting for once his
tight boots and waist, had lashed the prince
Sn Hyde Park. All this required a good
deal of telling about, and when the Prince
proposed marriace to Mrs. Leslie and was
refused, and the Prince threatened to com
mit suicide, and hired a French paper to
,say that the Czar wanted to make him the
ruler of Bulgaria, the thing became very
t At present the romance has worn off, but
there are still some interesting things to be
told about the Prince. They will not form
pleasant reading for Mrs. Frank Leslie, who
had a good natured friendship for
THE YOUTHFUL ADTEJTTUEEB,
tut they may be instructive to those who
are forming his acquaintance in America
just now. There has been a good deal of
.cabling between here and America concern
ing him, people in the United States, for
reasons of their own, having sought to find
what was his character, not so mnch as a
princely personage, but more especially as
a criminal. Here are the plain unvarnished
facts, which they are in search of:
The Prince knows what jail life is like,
both in Germany and France, but has
kept clear of very uncomfortable judicial
lodgings in this country On the 12th of
August, 1881, he was arrested in Berlin for
fraud, and subsequently sentenced to two
years' imprisonment In September, 1883,
he was sentenced to three months' imprison
ment at Versailles, also for fraud. In
June, 1831, he was sentenced to a term of
French imprisonment for contumacy.
In September, 18S4, he was in England
and incurred numerous debts. On the 9th
of March, 1886, he was arrested in London
at the demand of the French authorities on
a charge of fraud, and was subsequently
landed over to the French police. These
latter described the fascinating Prince in
rough and unsympathetic words as a "woman-hunter,"
and declared that it had been
the trade of his life. .
CAME HEEE IN DISTEESS.
The Prince appears only to have come to
this country after having made the conti
nent an uncomfortaDle place to be in, and
lere he lived in a very comfortable fashion
for a long time. He was at the Star and
Garter, Richmond, and the proprietors re
member him to this day to the tune of
3,000. At one time he was on the point of
marrying a very rich woman, when fortu
nately her friends informed her what par
ticular kind of a prince she was playing
vith, and she disappointed him. The
3?rince, while in London, went about a great
deal, not so much in society as among
the restaurants where cooking and
credit are both obtainable by a prince,
and all the while he was discreetly
followed by a quiet gentleman who was very
attentive butnotobtrusive, and who watched
lis movements, and consequently those of
lis friends. Uncomfortable as this fact
raaj be for the latter, his adventures of va
rious kinds have been numerous and profit
able, and it is thought over here that the
Pinkertons have already in their possession
some interesting facts concerninc him.
It is painful to write all this about a
cheerful young man, but it may do some
good. Perhaps the most remarkable fact is
that it proves the Marquis de Leuville to
lave been quite correct in what he said
about the Prince, when he had made a gal
lant attempt to demolish him.
XIXG MILAN GL00MI AGAIN.
He Thinks He Una Caught Bis Best Friends
riottlnc Against Him.
rBY CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
London, February 16. King Milan,
whose ups and downs are wonderfully sud
den, is in a gloomy mood again. Just as
lewas going to build up a new Cabinet,
vith the Radical element for its backbone,
le discovered or thinks that he has
discovered the evidence of a deep and
deadly plot against his throne, managed
ly the very Radical leaders whom he in
tended to honor. Big boxes containing
rifles have been seized, it seems, and Mr.
Tauschanovics, the President of the Skupt
echina, and who was to have been the Minis
ter for Home Anairs,is very much mixed up
with the deadly rifles and with the plot
jrenerally, having been, if King Milan is
not deceived, in correspondence with Ser
Via's enemies abroad.
There is a good deal of anxiety as to what
King Milan will do, and the usual talk,
which never amounts to anything, of his in
tention to abdicate, is trotted about once
more. His grief at the wickedness of the
Radicals is pprhaps somewhat softened by
the new departure on the part of Queen
Nathalie, whom he so handily divorced.
The Queen, whom everyone has believed
was traveling about Bussia and the
rest of Europe, trying to have
her former lord and master toppled off his
throne, now gives it to be understood that
the desires nothing of the sort She con
ciders that the interests of the King are
identical with those of her son, and tro
poses to fight for the Obrienovitch dynasty,
through thick and thin, in order that her
boy may have have his turn at governing,
when the time comes.
A great many people think that these
sentiments of Queen Nathalie are really
based upon the tact that she could not find
anybody to do the toppling over of her hus
band which she wished for.

THE MERITS OP THE SYSTEM

Hannal Training and Domestic Economy for the Ris
The introduction of free textbooks into the
public schools is agitating the minds of our
legislators. Bills have been introduced
looking to that end,, and for uniformity in
composition. Another measure affecting
the rising generation is the proposition to
introduce into the public schools a system
of manual training for boys and of domes
tic economy for girls.
FROM A STAFF COBKESFOITDENT.J
Habbisbubg, February 16. Undoubt
edly more interest centers about the bill
framed to authorize the introduction into
the public, schools of a system of manual
training for boys and of domestic economy
for girls than about any other measure thus
far introduced into the Legislature. The
proposed experiment is an interesting one,
and the commission that originated the plan
for it was composed of some of the best
brains of the State. A brief outline of the
plan has already appeared in The Dis
tatch, descriptive of the vital points of the
system, the general details of which remain
to be slowly worked out.
But there are other matters of almost
equal interest to educators pending at Har
risburg. Various bills are before the Legis
lature, or in committee, which propose uni
formity of textbooks through the work of a
special commission, and the publication of
the same by the State, with an additional
proposition to make the books free to all
schools. As the law stands school boards'
mar now furnish text books free, but Dr.
Neff, of Washington county, is pushing for
ward a bill to make the law mandatory in
stead of permissive. This plan is favored by
the Departm entof Education, while tbeplans
for uniformity of text books and for their
publication by the State are not. It will be
news to a great many people, that for about
70 years the city of Philadelphia has fur.
nished textbooks free to the pupils of her
schools, and that in ten cities and boroughs
outside Philadelphia text books are fur
nished free. In addition to this free text
books are furnished in 1.072 schools in 26
counties of the State. It is a matter for sin
cere regret that in their annual reports the
couutyand borough School Superintendents
do not give more information on this very
interesting subject, but it is noticeable that
where they do devote space to it they speak
in highest commendation.
merits op the system.
One point of importance is strongly
brought out by the Superintendent of
Schools ot Nanticoke, who says: "The cost
to the district is much less than when the
children were required to furnish their own
books and supplies, since large quantities
are bought at a great reduction from retail
prices." But of this, more further on. The
favor with which the free textbook system
is received, where tried, is indicated in the
case of Montgomery county, which supplies
them now in 32 districts, while they were
supplied in but 15 districts six years ago.
There remains now but 18 districts in the
county where the system is not in opera
tion, and it is being agitated in these.
As to the cost ot the system, it
is interesting to find from the
reports for the y.ear that the levy for school
purposes in Montgomery county averages
but 2.44 mills, against an average of 3.60 in
Alleeheny county. In Chester county, with
its 283 schools in which textbooks arc fur
nished free, the average levy in but 2.67
mills. In Delaware county, in which text
books are furnished free, the average lew is
2.93 mills. These figures do not inclnde
the levy for building purposes. In Beaver,
where frse text books are not furnished, the
levy is 7.42 mills. la Cambria, where free
books are furnished in but 275 of 283
schools, the levy is 10.06, and in many
schools which have not adopted the free
textbook system, the levy is yet higher,
reaching 12.28 mills in Jefferson county. A
fairer test of the free textbook system
is to be found in the average cost per month
of educating a pupil. In Allegheny
county Jthe cost per month is $1 04. In
Chester county, where 282 of 341 schools are
supplied with free textbooks, the cost per
month for each scholar is but 9 cents higher;
in Delaware it is 21 cents higher, but in
Montgomery, with 235 of its 368 schools fur
nishing textbooks free, the cost is 11 cents
less than in Allegheny county, or but 93
cents per scholar per month.
In other counties which do not furnish
free textbooks the cost ranges from 59 cents
per scholar per month in Fulton to 51 24 in
Warren county. The average outside of
Philadelphia is 94 cents. However, such
data is not sufficiently complete to afford all
the required information. It merely serves
to show that the difference in cost where
textbooks are furnished, free is merely a
matter of a few cents per month added to
the cost of each scholar. Philadelphia is,
tne most expensive place in tne country to
educate a child, according to the last report
of the Department of Edncation, which
places the cost per month of each scholar at
51 76. It would be interesting to know just
What proportion of this amount is paid for
ethical and otheb views.
There are many arguments in favor of
free textbooks aside from statistical ones
that were grouped not long ago in a speech
made by Prof. Wickersham, whose record
as Chief of the Department of Public In
struction is well-known. He argued that
the public is under as much obligation to
furnish textbooks as to furnish school
houses, seats, desks, etc In other words,
the system ought to be free in all its parts.
The furnishing of textbooks free to the in
digent alone does not increase their attend
ance at school, as, singling them out as
objects of charity, it creates unpleasant dis
tinctions. "Any argunent," says Prof.
Wickersham, "that can be made against
free books is equally good against free
Echools. The objection against free text
books is best answered when we sav
that free schools are now everywhere
acknowledged to be a godsend to the indig
nant classes of society, elevating their so
cial condition, making their labor more ef
ficient, freeing their minds from degrading

superstitions, inspiring them with the hope
ot bettering their condition and improving
their chances of success in life. Instead of
promoting idleness or pauperism, or crime,
or socialism, or anarohy, free schools, with
free textbooks, and the more because of
free textbooks, are the best antidote for
these evils. Philadelphia has less of the
spirit of socialism and anarchy than any
other large city in the country, and yet
this old staid city has furnished tree text
books with her free schools for more than
Massachusetts and California furnish
their schools with free textbooks, and seven
other States, including Pennsylvania, per
mit school districts to furnish free books.
Prof. Wickersham made a thorough canvass
of the two States mentioned, and the locali
ties where free books are used in the others,
and found striking
uniformity of agreement
on these points: Free books increase the
attendance at school, particularly in the
higher departments; remove from the schools
all distinctions of class; save time in or
ganizing schools and forming new classes:
enable the teacher to give more variety to
instruction; lessen the expense of furnish
ing textbooks. The reason free books in
crease attendance in the higher grades
is very apparent. In these grades
books are more costly and are a very serious
item in a poor boy s expenses. Progress in
sohools and in organization of new classes
is frequently delayed at the beginning of
the term because of the backwardness ot a
parent in buying books. Where the books
are furnished free there is no such delay.
Free books are less costlv to a community.
for the reason that when a pupil moves up
ward he leaves his books behind him for
those of a lower grade. Thus many pupils
in turn use the same books, and after the
first investment the cost is merely for wear
and tear or renewals. There is also the sav
ing effected in buying at wholesale instead
of retail from 25 to 50 per cent. Prof.
Wickersham's estimate is that under the
free textbook and supplies system the cost
for each pupil is only from 60 cents to 51 per
year, the average, perhaps, being 75 cents,
and the annual saving to the community
being 51 a pupil.
IS In the Department of Public Instruction
these views are indorsed. On the other
hand objection is made to a uniform system
of school books for the State. "In my
opinion," said Deputy Superintendent
Stewart, the tendency would be to narrow in
stead of to broaden and diversify the intel
ligence of the State. Tc try to make the
minds of the children of the State run in
one groove would be a decided check to in
tellectual growth and expansion." Simi
larly, the publication of school books by the
State is opposed on the ground that the ex
perience ot Califorinia and other States has
shown that books can be secured much more
cheaply from competing publishers.
