Interest in School Questions..
AX KXCOl'P.AOlNtS sign for
the future of the republic Is
t!-.c Invader interest shown
In better education for chil
dren and in the question of how lo
include all classes of children in help
ful training. There Is n growing per
ception that bodily, mental and moral
development all make their rightful
demand, one to be given duo heed to
in every system of instruction. The
special schools for incorrigible and for
backwatd children; the vacation
schools and playgrounds that in an
increasing number of cities are keep
ing children out of mischief, off .of hot.
crowded and dangerous highways: the
constantly growing- protest against
memory cramming- and written exami
nations instead of the fair, honest,
daily average work test, with advance
ment in grade following real mental
development and grasp of knowledge;
the risins; rebellion among parents
against enforced hours of study for
the child nt home, by reason of the
too heavy demands made in currleu
lunis that need revision and elimina
tion to be made reasonable all those,
nnd many more improvements in exist
ent methods are results of that grow
ing perception of which we speak.
It has become perfectly evident to
all who study the progress of this
broadening Interest In the schools as
the nurseries and training places of
the coming man and woman, that a
great many fads of what is styled "the
new education" will be eliminated from
the schools, and that what is digni
fied by the imposing title of "Child
Study," will have to be carried on In
a much more practical and reasonable
way than it has begun to attain to
yet. Its proclamations of fam'Jinr
facts "as old as the hills," as being
valuable new scientific, results discov
ered by weighing and measuring chil
dren and other such mechanical meth
ods, are becoming wcarisomo to mul
titudes of parents and instructors who
were overawed at first by tho conll
dont claims of the promoters of the
"new education" that they are tho peo
ple and wisdom will die with them.
Washington, which a year or two
ago lead the way in returning largely
to older, bolter and more fruitful
methods of teaching', is likely eie long
to huvo many cities and smaller places
following her exaninle In thorough re
vision of school methods In the recog
nition that tho new Is not by any
means always the best. As in tho ouho
of "old wlno and old friends," older
educational ways have often demon
strated themselves to be the better
the better in developing the industrial
mind and In the enriching of the
state's wealth of t;ood cltlr.eiiohlp.
A successful supervisor of schools
not long ago spoke truth to a conven
tion of kludnrgartners when he told
them thut Froebel had no', spoel-n the
last word in primary education, Nei
ther did Cbmunius speak by any means
the final word In education at any
stage, 'Wo are not behind any of those I
who are continually prnisins these I
great educators, In our apprehension or
their work. Hut that what wo ha'vo
just said remains true will be most
emphatically certified by those who
have really acquainted themselves at
first hand with some of his proposi
tions. The new education lutids them
all iudls'crlmlnately, follows some of
them, and does not always by any
menus mako Its selections from anions;
them wU-uly. Parents and patriot
must coiuo to practical recognition of
duty in school refurms and for the
development of the individual child m
whatever class or condition of life. Can
any one who considers for a moment
the multitudes of totally uiilnstructcil
children of the republlv, and th-j other
multitudes of those who have ' been fit
school" for muro or loss time, IiuUutm
wholly without any practical f?.iln for
futuru life from that experience, fall
to recognize that In educational lines
tho time has not yet arrived for us to
settle down and simply proceed to
plume ourselves on present condl
tlons? Jacksonville, lylnb' In ruins, Is con
fronted by two dinioultles. For the
one It makes the strongest possible
appeal to the entiru country for help.
It cannot clear away the debris and
attain any tolerable sanitary condi
tions without mure money and a great
deal of It. The other difficulty It has
promptly met by promulgating and
following out the Apostle PhuI'n wise
dlcttlm! "If any matt will not work,
neither shall ho. out," The promptness
with which It liaa untie this should add
n double foreo to Its appeal for gener
ous money contributions just Issued
through u committee of tl)e highest
Thu win-lit has hoard much of lalo of
tlm manner In which the festive mos
quito and the multitudinous anil
driitded rat spread contagion. Now,
says the Now York Tribune, "Capo

checked until the rain nro extirpated.
Tho ablest Pituitary exiierts all over
the world now agree that these sewer

President MoKlnley's route took him
to Los Angeles Just at the time of
that city's annual Flower Fete. The
descriptions of that splendid festival
sent broadcast over the land have
moved Chicago to envy. The Hecord
Herald rises to claim In large capital
letters and a half page of space that
"Chicago Is the floral queen city of
the country." The claim Is upheld by
stating that "Chicago buys and sells,
wholesale and retail, more (lowers than
'any other city In the United States."
Tint may In, but It Isn't the city of
(lowers, for nil that, as are the South
ern California cities, and Chicago poo.

On Saturday last at Cooper Union,
Now York city, the one hundredth an
niversary ot" tho birth of Peter Cooper,
a commemorative tablet was unveiled
by the Union's Alumni association.
The accounts say the tablet was de
signed and executed by former students
of the institution, and then give the
honored name of Augustus St. Gaud

dallion of Mr. Cooper, and of William
C. Haskell as the maker of tho marble
panel on wltich the medallion is set.
The edict of the commissary de
