F3or School Improvement.
ON MONDAY, the name tiny
upon which the Philadelphia
board of ucluratlun's .special
joiinnlttee deckled In luviir
of lerni average, promotions, the
Kochester, N. Y., bouril adopted unani
mously the recommendation of Super
intendent Gilbert to shorten the pub
He school course between Kindergar
ten unci High school from nine years
to eight. That places tlio Rochester
course on the Kruno basis nC time now
in vogue lit u majority of .American
cities; allliuugh n few liave already
cut the course down to .seven years;
and, as Superintendent Gilbert pointed
out In Ills import, Boston, the chief
city' retaining a. nine years' course,
' has for a long time provided u short
cut, allowing students who desire to
take higher courses to leave the
Kiammrr tchools for the Lutlu school
before the completion of the course."
Scranton is one of the clght-year-cour.se
cities before attaining' the High
school. It is not, therefore, with re
ference to that thul we allude to the
Rochester superintendent's report anil
its school board's action.
Mr. Gilbert notes that under present
terms of study those young people
who s through grammar and high
s-cliool grades, then enter college and,
liiiully, ii professional school, must
roach an age of .'" or -J7 years before
becoming producers in society. Tills
condition, he states, "besides unduly
detaining hi educational Institutions
very many, undoubtedly deters many
more from pursuing higher courses at
all." L'ndoubtedly it 'does ho. That
is tlii! cause, in connection with the
belated entrance into active life of.
those who do push through the higher
courses, that bus brought about ac
tion in KOine-of the leading American
universities reducing their academic
courses from four years to three for
those who intend to enter professional
But there are the many .who, espec
ially In an industrial community, such
as this, cannot reach the High school
at all. Mr. Gilbert frankly states that
the shortening of the course, the put
ting of eight grades for nine of seven
for eight, as in some cities "makes
necessary the elimination of some
things now in the curriculum, but such
elimination," he adds, "is necessary
on educational grounds."
Truer words ou that Mtbject were
never written. The "enrichment" or
.school courses, of which we hear ho
much in thcho days, has so far been
made to mean the multiplication of
required studies to u degree thut hlm
Ply tires out the immature bruin. The
dull child Is mado more hopelessly
dull by the process. The, bright one
is often made dull, or, on the other
hand, reaches a nerve tension thut
lessens vitality uml often destroys
health. The true "enrichment" of
study, when the teacher bus a fair op
portunity to put vital Interest into the
lessons, to awaken enthusiasm in tho
pupils and then give it right direc
tion, is something very different from
the cramming' of studlew chioily to
pass examinations that has been dig
nified with tho title of "enrichment" of
The tendency to waste time "and,
by spending it on suportlelul details
to destroy the vital interest so essen
tial to the best work" Is Intensiiied,
mya Superintendent Ollbort because
of Inborn tu and double-hcaded system
of I'xuntlwUlonx, from which the pub

of this, and of the elimination of some
things from tho curriculum: "What
wo 'need is to clear the ruhhlsh out of

IT WAS because his teachings wore
more sublime and lofty than
lliofn of tlio Greek church In
Itttsslu, thai Tolstoi has been
driven In his old age friim his nultvn
land. Ills banishment is a fearful
shame and humiliation to Kusslit. U
is n confession thai the throno und tho
church, though protected by l.'JOO.unn

one quiet and truth-loving citizen. II o
has tried to Institute reforms In Kus
sla, hut only through peaceful means.
Like nil deep thinkers, he had Inde
pendent thoughts, and lu religious and
social mutters bo had his own theories,
and wllh the strong courage of Innate
right, was not careful tn conceal them.
This brought down upon hlui the mer
ciless fanaticism of the man who, un
der the czar, is tho head of the church,
and ho excoinmunicuted the kcholar
and Ihiuker. At this Tolstoi made u
personal appeal to the czar lo stay
the rage of the bigot. He was answer
ed by u decree of banishment.
The excommunication not only ex
pelled him from the church, but in
cluded In the writ that when ho died
lie should be denied Christ Ian burial.

His bunuhnicut will not lunm him

till hope that by this mean outrage

to the perilous nature of bigotry.

Another convincing 'argument

doavot' worker.s In the state and one or
the principal speakers nl. the big Inter

dune for him during his service In the
Ills address of welcome was hriefly

110011. A Uiblo study 011 the sixth chap
ter of tlie Second book of Kings was
conducted by AV. AV. Adair, secretary
of the Railroad Youn? Men's Christian
association. Tills Is the chapter in
which Lilsha is recorded as having
caused an Iron axe lo Iloal upon the
TIIK SILKNT HOUR.
There were thiee interesting' little
talks on the "Silent Hour Movement,"
given by Miss A'an Noli. AV. AY. La
thrope, and KvangclK't John Davis, of
Rlnghainton, who is conducting a series
of revival services at tho Young" Men's
Christian association rooms. The silent
hour is a certain part of every day,
generally tlfteen minutes, which Chris
thin Kudeuvorers in all parts of the
world arc pledging' themselves to set
aside for silent prayer and communion
The last speukor of the afternoon was
Rev. S. AW Young, of Moosie, who told
of what tlio Christian Kndeavor society
lias done for him and what It can do
for others. "The Christian Kndeavor
society," said he, "has strengthened
my faith in tlio power of the gospel to
save and sanctify."
The meeting' was brought to a close
with a ten minutes' testimony meeting,
and a benediction by Rev. Luther Hess
Tlie I'ltaiicily meeting: of the city
Christian Kndeavor union held in the
main auditorium of the Penn Avenue
church last night, was not as welt
attended as it shmtld have been. Splen
did addresses wcri made by several
eleigymcn and Director of Public
Safety V, L. Hitchcock, and a set of
vi solutions were adopted protesting
agninsl the passage of the bill just
introduced In the state legislature providing-
for tho repeal of some of the
old blue laws prohibiting the desecra
tion of the Sabbath.
The meeting was presided over by
Rev. Luther Hess AVuring, pastor of
Grace Kv.uigelical Lutheran church
and president of the city union. A
brief business session was conducted
at the outset. On motion of A. J!.

the Duiimoie Presbyterian church ,
war; unanimously elected as superin
lendenl of junior work.
I.Ml'ORTANT CHANG MS.
Soerai amendments to tho consti
tution, ot'O.red by AY. T. Hackclt, were
also unanimously adopted. The most
important of these provided that in
the future tho executive committee
shall consist of not only Ike otllcer!!,
but also the members of all standing
committees of each and every society
alllliarod with the 1MI011. Another
amendment piovided that all olfciings
in the future for the support of the
city 'union shall bo five will and that
1 ho old si stem of taxing each society
VI a year be dispensed with, in order
t,n carry the Christian Kndeavor spirit
into tills matter.
The 'first addtess was delivered by
Rev. Robert V. X. TMoree, D. D.,'pas
tor of the, Pcnnu Avenue church. lie
gave ii number of interesting statis
tics, .showing the wonderful growth of
the Christian Kiuleavor movement In
twenty years, from one society, with
a membership of llfty-sevcii, in 60,
TM societies, with a membership of
:i,."UO,000. lie spoke of tho necessity
of a closer union between the churches
of the city.
Director Hitchcock spoke on "Chris
tian Citizenship," following Dr. Pierce.
He quoted statistics to prove that while
wo have advanced In many ways dur
ing the nliietcuth century, that ciimo
Is rapidly on tho increase. During tho
year ll'Ofl there were 8,:.'i5 murders com
mitted iu this country, liJio suicides
and I to lyuchiugs, he said, Tlio in
crease in tho tiuuihur of murders over
the previous year was if.O'iO.
This showed the vast sub-strutum of
I'llniw underlying society in this coun
try, he said. Ho then took up the ques
tion of ideal citizenship and pointed
mil. some of (ho things which an Ideal
citizen was not, The ideal citizen, ho
said, was not tho man who schemed
out of serving 011 it Jury, or who ne
glected to uo to tho polls ou election
day, mid who then howls because there

lie referred to the vague Ideas which
the majority or America 11 women have
of tlio principles of tlie form of gov
ernment under which we tiro living,
ami expressed tlm hype tlput during the
coming century tho women of the laud
miuht come to bo the Inculeutors of
clvio righteousness, us were the women
under tho old Jewish dispensation, Tho
solution of tho problems of government
confronting1 thu country, ho said, lay
with the members of organizations
such us the Christian Kndeavor .society.
Dr. Pierce paid Colonel Hitchcock a
high Li Unite when he had llnlshed say-lut-,
that the people of Scrauton already
owed him u debt of grtttltudu for the
reforms which he 1ms so fur made dur
ing his brief service as director of pub
Uo safety. 4
Agent Robert AYilson, of the Munici
pal leuguo, followed and madu it twenty
minute address along slmllur line. He
told something of the work the league,
had accomplished lu closing the speak
easies und lu making the licensed deal
ers shut on Sundays. He asked that
the Chvlstlan Kndeavoi society do
something fov the men who have been
thrown Into' the sheet evoiy Sunday by
I ho closing of tho saloons, and snld
that the time w-os now rife In tho city
of HcrBiiton for the "echo of the
whistle of the sword of yod to ho heard
on every street."
"1 ask you," said he, liv.concluslon,
"to pray every dny for those who are
carrying on this work. AVe have boon
through many n peril, and have bouo
through many dangerous scenes,' but
i3od has been good lo us, and He will
continue to tyo If the prayers of Chris
thin people arc offered up for us."
I1EV. GIBBONS' ADDRESS.
Uev. AV, V. Gibbons, ptiBtot of the
Duumorc Presbyterian church, spoke
on "Twentieth Century Churches." The
church of the twentieth century, he
thought, will have to "place less de
pendence upon human help and more
dependence Upon God." Tho church of
the new century, he said, must be n.
church for the ninny ttiiit not for the
few, a popular church lu every sense of
Her. Luther Hess AYiuing gave u
brief resume of mission work since tlie
modern missionary movement started
some two hundred years ago, and told
of tho wonderful progress made, but
showed how there was room for more
progresR along missionary lines.
Just before adjournment. Dr. Pierce
offered the following resolutions, which
were unanimously adopted:
