Editor of Pennsylvania School
Journal Makes Plea For Per
manent Dwellings
The editor of the Pennsylvania
School Journal has prepared the
following article under the head of
"Homes for Teachers":
"The parsonage is usualyy under
the shadow of the church. The
school manse, the Homo of the
Teacher —almost as much needed as
that of the preacher-—is coming
soon in the better days ahead. Sen
ator John G. Homsher. of Lancas
ter county, has introduced 'in the
Senate at Harrisburg, a bill provid
ing that school districts of the
fourth class may purchase or build
dwelling houses for principals, teach
ers and janitors, in cases where
such dwellings are deemed neces
sary by the board of directors.
"The bill was introduced at the
instance of certain school districts
where the question of finding a
dwelling has been a serious obstacle
in the way of procuring such ser
vices. In fact, in any townships and
in the smaller boroughs, it has be
come an increasingly difficult prop
osition for unmarried teachers to
find boarding places. Often a prin

You will appreciate next winter every jar of syrup-y I

the importance of the right cane sugar is great.

clpal or teacher with a family can
uot accept a position and find a com
fortable homo within eaay distance
of the school.
Senator Honisher says that in
such districts it has been observed
that much of the general efficiency
of the schools is dependent upon
the principal and teachers residing
or boarding in proximity to the
school. The principals or teachers
who merely pome on Monday niorn
g from a point without the neigh
borhood of. the school and leave i
on Fridny evening, being thus re
moved from the social life of the J
community, cannot do their best
work for the schools. In the case
of janitors it is almost Imperative, j
especially in high schools or con- :
solldated schools, that the person I
who attends to the school property
should reside nearby, nnd if there ,
Is no dwelling available, there is !
nothing to be done but to buy or to j
build. .
" 'The Brown Mouse, a story by ;
Herbert Quick, of an unusual school
master, is worth reading for its
suggestion to thoughtful people. Mr. '
Quick believes the largest single
problem In American rural life is '
rural education, because it has to do
with that third of our people who
feed the other two-thirds. He tells
here the story of a Lincoln-like farm
hand, a genius in blue Joans, who
upsets an lowa district, and in the
end a whole countryside with a new
kind of country school.
"In Volume 17 of the Pennsyl- ;
vania School Journal, July. 1868 j
more than fifty years ago—Dr. |
Thomas H. Burrows says in an ar
ticle on this subject, "And, rising
still higher, to the rural home of
the married teacher, with all the
moderate comforts, appliances and
adjuncts of domestic life around—
comfortably furnished home, good
garden, cow and poultry, pigs in the
pen and fruit on the trees —we find
' him in the position in life which
, Providence intended, and to which
j the common rights of society en
' title him.
" 'Were we a millionaire such as
I Glrard or Astor, and resolved to
: dedicate our wealth so us to do
most good to the work of the
i schools, through the teachers, we
would devote it to the establishment
I of a comfortable permanent dwoll
, ing house with sufficient garden
I ground, in connection with every
j common school In the State —there-
j by both settling down and raising
I up the Profession of Teaching.'
"Senator Honisher has opened up
what we think a great question. He
! points the way of progress in a dl-
I rection in which peoplo have stead
:ll y refused to look or go. Dr. Bur
-1 rowes hud tho vision, and this Jour
-1 nal lias repeatedly urged the homo
Tor the teacher as a wise policy in
progressive rural districts, in the
hope of attracting and retaining
more mnrried men of ability nnd
scholarship in tjio profession. In
the Stato of Washington, nnd per
haps Oregon, something has been
i done of late years In building such
j homes. Let us have this good law

Women Were Among Those
Who Have Been Honored

Alnia, Mich., June 26. —In recog
nition of work in encouraging food
production during the war, the Na
tional War Garden Commission has
awarded a medal to Mrs. Francis

Pack, president of the commission.

the United Slntes, England, France,
Belgium and Italy, and to the world
leaders in food control. ,

Will Clean Wool Before
Placing It on Market
Calgary, Alta. ■ — Bheep raisers of
southern Alberta flguro they throw
away SIO,OOO a year in transporta
tion charges on grease and dirt in
wool shipments to easterly cities.
With southern Alberta furnishing
3 5 per cent, of the wool handled an
nually by the Canadian Co-operative
Wool Growers, members of the
Southern Alberta Wool Growers As
sociation are planning to build a
scouring plan* to place their pro
duct on the market as clean wool.
Southern Alberta raised 1,750,000
pounds of wool last year. All the
scouring has been done in eastern
cities and in the scouring process,
the wool shrinks 55 per cent, on ar
average. The western wool growers
have been accustomed thus to pay
about twice as much freight as would
be necessary if the wool were secur
ed before being shipped.
Berlin Swindlers
Reap a Fortune
Berlin, June 26. Two clever
swindlers took advantage of the
procedure prevalent nowadays, by
making a coup which resulted in
netting them half million marks
through advertisements. They in
terested wealthy men in platinum
which they produced In some under
hand way and offered to sell it for
cash which was to be delivered at a
point not far from Berlin in a lone
ly road. .
The purchasers appeared in autos,
delivered the currency and received
the platinum, but on returning to
tho city they were challenged by al
leged soldiers. The car was searched
as if for weapons and the platinum
taken by accomplises of the swind

Importation of
Pearls From India
Arrive in Paris
Vow York. —The first importation
of pearls from India since the out
break of tho war has arrived in
Paris. The pearls were of good
quality but small size, but there was
spirited competition among dealers
to buy them nnd high prices were
realized. The quality was not large
nr.-d the gems were all disposed of
two days after their arrival and
could have been sold in an hour if
the fncilites had been adequate.
Many pearls are being bought .in
Pnrls for German Jewelers by agents
from neutral countries. Germany
may be tottering or.* the brink of
bankruptcy but its jewelers seem to
have plenty of money to invest in
pearls and diamonds. Many of these
I gems are being sent to Germany
from the Parisian market.
All the denlers in Paris are lrr the
mnrket to buy pearls and as the
British government has now abolish
-led the restrictions on cxportations
ol pearls from India, fresh ship
ments nro awaited eagerly. Amer
ican dealers recently returned from
Parts, say pearls are selling for the
highest prices ever paid. All deal
ers are willing to pay high prices
because the demands for pearls are
coming in from all countries in un
precedented quantites and the mar
ket can not be supplied. Foreign
buyers are flocking to Paris from
I every nation in Europe.
Their firm, sure grip means safety. And
yet, they don't "fight the road."
