Joel Kerr, the MisHon "J T. 7
School Superintendent hasten to say that
the game was not played at Recreation
"Park, but on the grounds of the "Western
Pennsylvania Institute for the Deaf and
Dumb at "Wilkinsburg. As both spectators
and players were mutes, they found it easy
to refrain from loud protests against the
umpire's decisions and audible remarks on
the brilliant plays made by different mem
bers of the nines. I have witnessed a num
ber of ball games in Allegheny county, but
sever before have seen one in which silence
was so conspicuous an element Yet the
boys seemed to enjoy it, and apparently all
were quite as much in earnest as the most
garrulous nines that ever contested on the
diamond could possibly be.
It is pleasant to learn that children who
are without the invaluable natural gifts of
speech and hearing are not on that account
wholly debarred from the enjoyments which
ether youngsters of their age so much de
light in. More than this, the man whose
heart is in the right place must also derive
great satisfaction from the knowledge that

JL WOBTHY EfSTITOTIOir.
The people of Pittsburg ana vicinity have
the best of reason for pride in the noble in
stitution at "Wilkinsburg. It is a perpetual
monument to the zeal and charity of a small
band of enthusiastic philanthropists who,
in their efiorts to do rood, were cuided br
good judgment as well as benevolent im
pulses. Nowhere in the county, and probably
nowhere in the State, is there a Detter illus
tration of the divine truth contained in the
.parable of the sower than in this same In
stitute for the Deaf and Dumb at "Wilkins
burg. A little seed, that was planted more
-than 20 years ago, fell upon good ground.
It was carefully nurtured and tended and
the sheet developed into a magnificent tree,
which is now bearing such rich fruit that
the few who watched solicitously over the
growing plant must surely feel "that their
patience and labor have been rewarded more
'than a hundred fold.
The institute, which has now an average
-of 160 or more pupils each year, had a hum
ble and peculiar origin. Away back in 1868
there was a little mission Sunday school
which met in a carpenter's shop on Congress
street in Pittsburg. Joel Kerr, a hard-working
riverman, better known as "Dr."
Kerr, was its superintendent. Mr. Kerr
was, and still is, a faithful member of the
Third TJ. P. Church. He entered upon
Sunday school work as a young man over 40
years ago, and is still following it with the
.same zeal and energy that made his labor
successful In his earlier years. In his hum
ble school he sought to encourage pupils
and to extend the influence of the mission
jls ranch as possible.
To this end he made an offer, that any pu
pil who succeeded in bringing in a new
scholar should receive a prize. The pres
ents so distributed were not remarkably
Taluable, consisting mainly of books that
post 15 or 20 cents each, but they were suffi
cient to arouse the ambitions of his pupils,
and quite a number of new scholars were
gathered in who would never have come
save at the earnest solicitation of those who
were striving to win prizes. One Sunday a
little German boy appeared with a new pu
pil, a bright looking colored lad about 5
years of age, and claimed and received his
reward. The Superintendent was not at
first inclined to receive the new scholar, and
asked why he was not sent to a Sabbath
school for colored youth, which met weekly
in a neighboring building.
"His tongue is tied and his ears are
stopped tip, and he can't learn nothing
there," was the reply of the boy who had
picked up the waif and brought him to
And sure enough, the new pupil was
found to be deaf and dumb. The young
ster was allowed to remain, but the superin
tendent could do little with him. Mr. Kerr
was anxious to befriend him, and yet on one
or two occasions he had to put the little
Minute out of the schoolroom, as the boy,
puttering that peculiar, plamtivecry that the
deaf and dnmb make, disturbed the other
scholars and diverted their attention from
' their lessons. A lady who was teaching
in the mission school took a deep interest
in the litttle black orphan boy. She had
- relative, an educated mute, and she
persuaded him to come to the minion school j

The name of thjs muto'teacher was Will

was Henry Collins Bell. Their coming to

occurrence in itself, was the beginning of a

was urged to con- kintbura

up other mutes and bring them to the
Sunday school. Another deaf and dumb
.boy, Johnny Lowrv by name, wss
discovered and induced - to join the
school. But he had only attended a few
times when his mother raised an objection.
She did not want her boy taught in the same
class with a colored childl So Archy "Wood
side, a competent instructor, was brought to
the school to undertake Johnny Dowry's
Mr. and Mrs. Kerr soon became greatly
.interested m the welfare of the mute schol
ars, and so did other friends of the school.
One pnpil after another was added to the
deaf and dumb class until it numbered eight
or ten members. Educated mutes began at
tending, and those not cmploved as teachers
were formed into a Bible class under the in
struction of Mr. T. H. Murray. This Bible
class, I understand, still meets regularly,
and has quite a large membership..
The mission school soon grew too large for
the Congress street carpenter shop and a
room in the Franklin street schoolhouse was
secured as a meeting place. Here the teach
ers, having blackboards and other conveni
ences, worked to much better advantage.
The deaf and dumb Sunday school grew in
numbers and influence until it began to at
tract considerable attention from the public
The pupils attended the Third TJ. P. Church
regularly each Sabbath, and' occupied seats
set apart for them in the gallery.

his sermon to the mutes. But there was no
denominationalism in the school; pupils
were picked up wherever they could be
found, no matter what religion their parents
professed, or whether they professed any.
Exhibitions and entertainments were held
and the proceeds used to aid the needy
scholars. Earnest and successful efiorts
were made to enlist the sympathies of the
But it was impossible to give the pnplls
all the instruction they needed in a Sunday
school alone. An effort was, therefore",
made to have the class taken into the public
jchool This movement succeeded, though
against bitter opposition, and in September,
1869, the mutes were allowed to attend the
First ward public school. The class num
bered less than 20, and Archy and Sarah
"Woodside were the teach. Th l!ttl
silent children, attending a great school for
the first time, enjoyed the novelty, and also
enjovea teaching their associates the sign
language. It is said that nearly all the
pupils who came in contact with the mutes
learned to use their hands as well ns their
voices lor talking.
But even after it had been decided to
give the deaf and dumb a chance to be edu
cated and to defray the expense out of the
public money those opposed to the plan
continued talking and" grumbling. Ihev
said the children, not being able to hear -o'r
talk, would be run over and killed by
vehicles and cars on the streets. No acci
dents were ever reported, horever, as
Mayor Brush instructed his police to look
carefully after the unfortunate little ones
and see that they were kept ont of harm's
way while on the way to and from school.
THE INSTITUTE CKABTEBED. "
As many of the mutes lived too far away
to attend the school daily and return to
their own homes at night, a home was estab-
iisucu on oecona avenue where they were
boarded and cared for. It was not long
until the plan of establishing a deaf and
dumb school like that in Philadelphia was
projected and encouraged. Dr. "Worthington,
of the Board of Pnblic Charities, visited
the mutes, urged their friends to continue
in their work, and eventually succeeded in
getting an appropriation to help forward
the movement The school was removed
from the First ward to the Third ward
(Grant street) and the home from'Second to
"Wylie avenue. The capacity of the quar
ters allotted to the mutes became taxed to
the utmost, and the necessity for more ample
accommodations became apparent to alL
James Kelly donated a tract of ten acres
of land in AVilkins township, and $21,500
was raised in subscriptions for the purpose
of erecting buildings. The institution was
incorporated in 1871, but circumstances de
layed the work. Finally, in 1876, a hotel
building was secured "at Turtle Creek,

Bev. Dr. John G. Brown, .who became
interested in the good work long before the
institute was thought of, and who has been
one of its most .faithful friends-from the
start, is now the principal at the Wilkins

the past four years and has discharged his
difficultTduties in a 'manner that has met
with almost unanimous approval.
Among those who befriended the enter
prise when it was most Ja heed of friends
were a large number of prominent Pitts
burgers, several of whom have since passed
to their reward. "William Thaw was one of
the most zealous friends of the benevolent
project and contributed liberally. The late
John B. McCune looked carefully after the
financial interests of the institution, and as
long as he lived continued one of its most
faithful and efficient officers. "William
Holmes and Mrs. Jane Holmes made gener
ous bequests; James P. Hanna, John B.
Jackson, John Wilson and many others
were among the earliest benefactors of the
school. Of them it may be truly said that
in the Wilkinsburg institute they have "a
monument more enduring than brass, more
precious than gems of the Orient,"
