MONDAY EVENING, MARCH 3
CITY Council Is to be commended
for the appointment of Dr.
George R. Moffitt as municipal
bacteriologist—not because any
of the several employes he replaces
are inefficient, for they are all good
men—but because the work under his
direction will be broader and more
comprehensive. Beside, the concen
tration of duties under the new ar
rangement will save the city a con
siderable sum of money for the year.
It is the duty of council to improve
the city service wherever possible, as
well as to conserve the public reve
nues, ana when both these are accom
plished by one act little more could be!
Dr. Douglas, who has resigned as j
city milk inspector, has done a spien- j
did pioneer work. When he took
charge milk inspection in Harrisburg
was little more than a joke. He has
done much to improve our supply and
to teach the dairymen the desirability
of clean barns, clean depots, clean bot
tles and clean, pure product. Dr.
Motfltt will find the milk inspector's
department well organized and on a
Dr. Moffitt is himself well fitted for
the place to which he Is to be ap
pointed. He is a bacteriologist of
acknowledged ability and experience
and it cannot be said that politics en
tered into his selection.
And almost on the anniversary of the
Taft flareback, too.
HOME GARDENING AND SCHOOLS
THERE is practical good in the
idea of home gardening directed
by the school as offered by Dr.
P. P. Claxton, United States
Commissioner of Education as a solu
tion for some of the most pressing
educational and economic problems
in city and suburban life. Dr. Clax
ton would have every vacant town lot
transformed into a garden, where boys
and girls would raise vegetables, ber
ries and fruit for pleasure and for
profit. He would have one teacher
In tho community employed twelve
jnonths in the year to teach elemen
tary science in school and direct the
home garden work after school, on
Saturdays and during the summer
"Of the 13,000,000 children be-j
tween the ages of G and 20 in the
cities, towns, manufacturing vil
lages and suburban communities of
the United States," says Dr. Claxton,
"not more than 15 per cent, are away
from home during the summfer vaca
tion or engaged in regular employ
ment. The remaining 85 per cent,
jemain at home without any useful,
healthful, productive occupation re
quiring any large part of their time.
On the other hand, there is much
valuable land in back yards and va
cant lots that is serving no useful
purpose. The problem is to bring
this land and these children to
Dr. Claxton believes that in every
school and community there should
be at least one teacher who knows
gardening, both theoretically and
practically. This teacher should teach
the elementary sciences in the schools
during the school hours and should,
out of school hours, direct the home
gardening of the children between the
ages of 7 or 8 and 14 or 15. If pos
sible the teacher should have the as
sistance of an expert gardener, so
that the work may be done in the
most practical and profitable way.
The teacher and the gardener should
help the children find the plots of
ground in back yards, front yards and
vacant lots near their homos best
suited for gardening work, aid them
toy some co-operative method to
have the lots properly plowed and
prepared for cultivation, help them
x select seeds, show them how to plant,
cultivate and harvest, so as to obtain
the best results.
Vegetables, berries and fruits
grown should be used first as food
'for th« children and their families,
says Dr. Claxton; then the surplus
should bo marketed to the best ad
vantage. Through the help of the
laacher this can be done in a co
operative way. Ten or fifteen cents'
worth of vegetables each Jay from
the gardens of each of 200 children
would amount to S2O or S3O. In the
Summer and Fall, when the surplus is
large and can not be marketed to ad
vantage, tlio teacher should direct
and help the children in canning and
preserving for winter use or for sale.
The canning and tomato clubs of the
Southern States have already shown
what can be done in this way.
It is difficult to estimate the re
sults of this plan when it shall be in
full operation throughout the coun
try. For the children it will mean
health, strength, joy in work, habits
of Industry, an understanding of the
value of money, as measured in terms
of labor, and such knowledge of the
phenomena and forces of nature as
must be had for an understanding of
most of their school lessons.
Compared with the results, the cost
will be inconsiderable. No addition
to the number of teachers will be re
quired. It will only be necessary to
require different preparation for one
teacher in each school.
In the estimates submitted to Con
gress by the Commissioner of Educa
tion for the support of the bureau in
the next fiscal year ail item of $5,700
is included to enable the bureau to
begin the introduction of this kind of
work in the schools of the United
States. The commissioner believes
that it will only be necessary to work
out details of plans and to present
them to school officers, together with
full information in regard to results
of somewhat similar work already
done at various places.
After last night's experience some of
the new policemen no doubt feel that
there are worse things than being
turned down by Council.
TEACHING CHILDREN TO SAVE
THE spread of the School Savings
Bank System is an encouraging
sign of the times. Tho plan is
already working well in a num
ber of American cities and has the
indorsement of leading educators.
"This is not a money-making plan
|at all," says Louis Betz, St. Paul
banker. "It's an opportunity to spread
j the spirit of saving a'iid help in the
education of children."
The object of the School Savings
Bank System is to create habits of
thrift, industry and economy; to cul
tivate self-denial and self-control; and
to develop in boys and girls an under
standing of the value of the right use
In general, the plan is to give every
child an opportunity to deposit his
pennies and dimes in any local bank
through the medium of the organiza
tion formed for the purpose under the
supervision of the teachers and boardsj
The children leave their money at!
the school and are given a receipt
therefor. The school banker deposits
in one of the local banks tho amount
received from the children who have
their accounts with him. The accounts
are checked up at stated intervals
and the money is subject to the order
of the child depositor or the parent.
The spendthrift tendency of the
American people is one of the chief
causes of poverty and want. To over
come this tendency and make the fu
ture generation a thrifty and saving
one is the chief purpose of the school
savings idea. The inclination to save
is one that should be encouraged by
parents, teachers and friends of chil
dren generally, as it means much, not
only to their future, but to the future
of the nation.

REDUCE THE MILL.AGE
COUNCIL should not hesitate to
reduce the city tax rate for the
remaining nine months of the
year after April 1, because it
will be necessary to restore the cut
next year. If eight and a half mills
will provide sufficient revenues for
the city expenses, let eight and a half
mills be the levy. The taxpayers will
readily understand that the reduction
is not permanently possible and will
be happy in the fortunate circum
stance that gives them an apparent
relief from the heavier rate of taxa
But no matter how low the rate
may be for the coming nine months,
in reality no saving is affected. We
shall have to pay taxes just the same.
The city must have money with which
to meet its expenses. The only thing
that Council can do in the matter is to
see that we do not have to pay a
twelve-month tax rate for a nine

Professor Marion U. Larned of the |
University of Pennsylvaunla, who is
well known in Harrisburg by reason
of'his lectures here and his studies of
the sturdy people of Germanic stock
who settled Pennsylvania und made it
blossom, has just delivered an inter
esting talk it: Philadelphia on a most
prosaic subject. Dr. Lamed talked on
nothing else than barns. He discussed
the barn that we can see on the hill
sides from almost any part of Harris
burg and said that the people who
built such barns were serving the agri
cultural resources of the nation. The
speaker cited the well-known saying
that the Pennsylvania farmer's barn
is better than his house and told how
the great barns that we know so well
are now to be found through the West
and how the spread of "laniilies
brought up on Keystone State farms is
making prosperous the agriculture of
adjoining States. The description of
barns given by the lecturer told of the
type common in Lancaster county and
in the Lebanon and Cumberland Val
leys. And when you come to think
about it, there are no barns to coin
pare with the strong, commodious
structures which we have come to
treat as a matter of course. A walk
along tile River Front or a visit to
Reservoir Hill, or even to one of the
upper stories of the Capitol will enable
any one to get a glimpse of a barn
such as is unknown in portions of the
United States which boast of agricul
tural progressiveriess. Somo of the
barns near this city represent larger
Jnvestments than the farmhouses, and
no Pennsylvania farmer thinks of buy
ing a farm or moving on one unless
the barn is big and in applie pie order.
The barns we know are mostly of the
German type, there being few of the
Dutch or English types which are
made subordinate to the house. The
German idea of getting a place to
store the crops and letting the house
adornment come along when the
profits are taken is what lias made
this State hold its agricultural place
when it was developing mines, build
ing furnaces and mills, expanding in
dustry and constructing railroads.
Harrisburg people will be Interested |
to know that Enoch Stanford, who!
was at the head of the balance & Gros
pean tin plate mills for several years
and later In charge of mills near Con
shohocken, has formed a companv to
operate the Hazleton rolling mill. The
new company is composed of promi
nent men and they intend to put the
mill to work next month.
Ice cutting on the ponds and dams
in the vicinity has been going ahead
the last few days in spite of the snows,
and it is stated that some splendid Ice
has been cut in the upper part of the
county and in the Pine Grove region.
The cold snap caused the ice to form
in great masses and some of the ponds
were frozen with ice a foot thick. The
storfhouse within thirty miles of the
city will be filled with ice in the next
few days as the icemen will not run
any chances with a thaw.
Ross Poulton, a native of this city
and who is making good in Savannah,
has written an entertaining story of
the snowfall in the Georgia seaport
on February 5. The snow was the
heaviest known in years, and while
Mr. Poulton did not think much of it,
the folks in Savannah had all kinds of
fun. old and young going out into the
streets and having snowball tights.
Some of the gray-haired men were
like boys with the snow and the city
enjoyed the snow to the limit while it
lasted. The snow was a surprise and j
people who had only heard of it had
a chance to see what it was like.
Hat-chasing was one of our most

Among the names that have been
suggested to head the State ticket, it Ss
quite clear now that that of Martin G.
Brumbaugh has awakened the widest
favor and the deepest confidence. If
we have mistaken the situation, we
shall be corrected at the primaries, and
if so good a candidate for Governor as
the renowned educator be named, we
with all other good citizens shall have
cause for rejoicing. But at the moment

Consider, also, the multitudinous
dally hypocrisies of business life: the
false labels of goods, deceptive an
nouncements of clearance sales and

popular lecturer brought down the

of a Wall Street broker whipping his
boy for lying, that Is, for "setting
false rumors afloat." As politicians
have given up buying votes, once con
sidered a necessity, why may not
chambers of commerce get an agree
