LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE
(tTnder this heading short letters of In
torest will bo published when accompa
nlecl, for publication, by the wrlter'i
namo. The Tribune, will not bo held re
sponsible for opinions here expressed.)
Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: There Is a 12-year-old boy that lives
near me, whose name I will not mention,
because I am perfectly sure his purents
would not like to have his name in the
paper, us It Is by no means a good oc
count of him which I give you. I wish to
tell you about him In order to prove the
great benefit that Hon. John R. Farr's
compulsory education bill will have when
it comes Into force. This boy bus a kind.
respectable mother and sho tries every
way to send him to school, but, sud to say,
ho does not himself wish to learn, or obey
his parents, unU runs away from school
every day In the week. Ho curses his
father and mother, goes around with bail
companions, and hus a hard, wicked heart.
Thus he Kiicve3 his mother, sd that she
often sheds tears, but he does not care for
her sorrow; and when she punishes him
for his disobedience and wickedness sho
is sick for the rest of the day, and he runs
away and shows no wish to amend.
Now, I would llko to know, what will be
tho Inst of this boy, If he does not receive
an education? Here's tho whole truth
In a nutshell, as found In one of our na
tional proverbs: "As the twig Is bent, the
tree is Inclined." If not compelled to go
to school he will grow worse nnd worse
and If he lives to bo a man he will be
nothing but a fool, and his mind will be s.4
a barren desert, or like a forest overgrown
with wels and brambles. Dense Ignor
ance or intinlto errors will overspread his
mind, which is utterly neglected, and lies
without any cultivation whatever.
This' boy also has a little sister 9 years
of age following In his footsteps. "Well,
you say, "why don't their father see that
they both go to school. Ho Is strong and
quite able to uso tho rod when they dis
obey." It, no doubt. Is his duty to do so.
but he works nights and all day he's
around, with his hands In his pockets,
busy wutching tho building of a neigh
bor's barn, or advising others how to train
up their children and educate them; or he
has heard of some new Ideas of school
training is some book, and Is there to sug
gest better Ideas, and doesn't care whether
his own children receive an education or
not. He docs not believe In compulsory
education and faces the very best of men
and school teachers and tells them the
"cnndld truth, education Is all a fullrue.'
What are we going to do with such peo
pie? There are hundreds of the gume kind
u round Hydo Park. That's the beauty of
compulsion, they will he compelled by law
to see that their children are sent to
school: or, If not, they must suffer Its
Do I thoroughly believe, you may ask,
that the compulsion law Is going to Im
prove and benefit children in this city
I do. Indeed, and am sure that we won't
Have half the children as Ignorant as they
are now. I know of a dozen families on
one street alone, wherein there are t-hll
dren who do not go near school, and their
purents don't care whether they do or not
I have In mind a mun living on Luzerne
street, for Instance. Ho has live bovs
working, the two youngest of which work
in the brenker. One Is only 9 yours old.
nnd tho other a little over 11. Ho wnnts
to send them to school, but his wife makes
them go to work, so sho may amass a lit
tle money for herself, no mutter what will
become of them In the future; and they
both are so ignorant that they cannot even
write or spell their own names.
Now, nil the powors of human nntiiro
are capablo of education In every Indi
vidual. It Is on this fact that tho art of
education Is based. And It Is a truth of
which parents should bo fully convinced,
Nothing. Is more necessary to them than
faith In their children and what they can
do. No child must be thought too dumb
to learn anything. Every child's mind Is a
casket of beautiful Jewels all that Is
wanting Is the key. And the school Is
Just the place In which to find that key,
I know myself or hundreds In the Fifth
and Fourth wards between the ages of 8
and 13 years who never saw the Inside of
school room. Would It not bo better to sea
these children In school learning some
thing than running the streets night and
day? I atn glud that the time has come
when these children will bo compelled to
go to school, and I know or a great many
mothers and fnthers who feel thankful
ulso, and who congratulate Mr. Farr for
his successful efforts In getting compul
sory education. Daniel E. Gregory,
Scranton, April 25.
