W. STETSON SAYS THAT

In a Leetuio at the County Tcacheis'
Institute Yesteiday He Said That
the Educational Woiltl Is On a
Gland Diunk as Regaids a Mul
tiplicity of Studies and Needs to
Swear Off Supeiintondent Jones
on the Philosophy of Hlstoiy.
W. W. .Stetson, stipeilntendciit of
public schools for Maine, took a de
cided .stand against a multiplicity of
studies and hi fas or of a letuin to
some of the old time methods In n
talk on "dome Kssontials" dcllveicd
at yesteiday aftet noon's session of tho
county teaclipis' Institute.
"I belles e in tol books," said he,
"and I belles o In icclltitlons and In
many things connected with our edu
cational si stem but I also belles e that
the chlldieii should bo taken out In the
air and unto the hilltops at times that
they may see the lango and possibilities
of things about llfin. In my opinion the

Education That Counts.
Continuing along this geuei.il line
of thought Mi. Stetson leferred to the
essentially faulty natuie of much of
the studies taught In the schools at
the ptesent time, 'ihe boy, he said,
who is taught that masteiy of sell In

At the aflei noon session Supeilnten
dent Jones dells eied the fit st of tsso
lee tines ttaclng tho deselopinent of
national lite along the lines of national
lasvs. He took up the influence of
climate, food and soil upon the mind
and thus indirectly upon the nation.
As an illustration he cited the Intio
diictlon of the potato Into li eland.
Within a veiy shoit lime the popula
tion of that eountiy began to Inciease
at the rate of tluee per cent, a e.ir
because of the nutiltious qualities ot
the vegetable and its cheapness as ,n
aiticle of food. 'Die Lipid Inciease In
the population makes labor a diug on
the niaiket and the eountiy becomes
plunged into abject poseitj. This 11

effect of ceitaln things In the mateiial

The eat best civilizations of all time,
he said, the Ivlllzntluits of Kg.spt,
India, and Mexico sseie all found in
ton id countiles because of the piodiu
tlveness of the laud. In India the Tei
tile soil and ibuudanre of molstuie
pioduced an eMiaordliuiy amount of
lood. As In the rase of lielnul the
nbuitdaiice of lood produced an lucteas
ed population, low wages- began to be
paid svhen the supply of labor became
gi eater than the demand and theie ssas
nn altogether unequal dlstillnulon of
wealth. This unequal dlstilbutlon ot
wealth pioduced the class distinctions
which have become looted In the lists
of the Hindoos. This he said piostd
ihe Inlluenie of initeii.il conditions on
a nation's life.

"f .shouldn't like to be called a
