MORAL TEACHING IN SCHOOLS
A man who is much interested in Harrisburg edu
cational matters as well as in educational affairs
in general, believes there should be more systematic
efforts made in directing the minds of pupils toward
cleaner thinking and cleaner living. He thinks
more should be done to improve the moral tone of
pupils in our schools and that there should be a
regularly prescribed course, with text books, to
teach good morals to school children.
The military system in schools is objected to by
this man, who. by the way, spent much of his youth
in Germany. He says that while the German mili
tary \raining in the schools teaches loyalty to
nation' it overdoes the thing in that it tends to
create in the pupils' minds more regard for lighting
efficiency than for the higher ideals of human life.
_ Yet he recognizes the merit the German system
has in that it sets up au ideal aud systematically
directs the minds of the children toward it.
In other words he believes the system is all right
but not the ideal, and this suggests to his mind that
if a similar system were employed in this country,
but directed toward a different ideal,—that is to
ward better morals rather than toward military
efficiency.—the school children of America would
make far better men and women.
In our opinion the public school teachers of this
city and this country, as a class, are persons who
individually have a very good influence which they
freely exert over their pupils. In many instances
they do more to shape the morals of the children
than do the parents. Yet it seems to be true that
there is not any very systematic method in force
here of teaching the ethics of right living to school
children. Systematic training along these lines
must, of course, be based on general principles of
morality rather than ou the tenets of any particular
creed or religious denomination, but nevertheless
the suggestion ought to prove practical.
Perhaps a combination of the German system of
training, with the military ideal left out. directed
toward the ideals that individual American teach- j
ers endeavor, in an unorganized sort of way. to set •
up for their pupils, might till the need which the
gentleman referred to believes to exist.
NOT ALL SPARROWS ARE HARMFUL
Although sparrows are not always well thought j
of among persons who are accustomed to peace
aud quiet, the information comes in a Farmers'
Bulletin issued by the Department of Agriculture
that there are forty or more species of North Amer
\ jean sparrows which are helpful, not harmful, and
should be protected, not outlawed.
Burroughs has said that the English sparrows
are street eauiins while ours are timid rustics. The
definite difference is that the English birds are ,
aoisy and quarrelsome, while members of the Amer- !
k*an species are unobtrusive. Another example of
superiority of native products over foreign varie
ties, it seems.
The impudent sparrows which make their living
in Capitol Park by darting in front of deserving
pigeons and snatching peanuts aud other delica
cies which do not by right belong to them, are
enough to prejudice almost anyone against the
English species. Donations of carefully shelled .
peanuts are meant for the handsome pigeons which !
always repay their benefactors by exhibitions of
strutting,—delightful because of awkwardness.— ,
and flying.—attractive because of gracefulness. The i
contemptible little sparrows can do nothing them- I

solves to earn peanuts. and their intrusions on the
rights of the pigeons cannot but rile the dispensers
of the morsels.
The American birds, on the other hand, have
retiring dispositions and are not on especially fa
miliar terms with the general public; but although
they are seldom noticed, they may be found in prac
tically every part of the country, we are told, and
there may be as many as half a dozen varieties in
It will be well for the farmers, in particular,
to get acquainted with these uative creatures, who
are beneficial to the crops, according to the govern
ment investigators, because they feed on insects,
including many injurious beetles, as well as on
grass ami weed seeds.
CRIMINALS OF DIFFERENT KINDS
A New York judge who has presided at a thou
sand criminal trials and has tut,tie a study of the
psychology of criminals has placed offenders against
society in three classifications: Institutive crimi
nals. whose offenses are habitual; occasional crim
inals. who do wrong because they are tempted, and
criminals who are mentally defective, lie asserts
that because the inmates of State prisons represent
these different types, the theory of a prisoner's
republic within prison walls under present condi
tions will not produce beneficial results, and that
what is needed is the segregation of the instinctive
from the occasional criminals. The former, he de
clares. resist all processes designed for their reform
while tfte latter are more docile and might with
benefit be trusted to govern themselves.
It certainly sounds logical that the inmates of
prisons on whom attempts at reform have possibil
ties of doing the most good are the occasional crim
inals.—the unfortunates who are not hopelessly
wicked but who, like the Rev. Mr. Holies in Steven
son's ''The Rajah's Diamond," are subjected to
temptations which their wills are too weak to resist.
The methods of reform to be applied to such pris
oners. of course, have to differ from those aimed at
the habitual criminals if they are to be effective.
The suggestion that these two classes be separated
as the first step toward effectual reform, although
it may or may not be practicable, is worthy of con
Were the object of imprisonment to afflict of
fenders rather than to reform them, conditions
which permit contact between men who are crimi
nals by design <uui those who are criminals by acci
dent, could he considered to provide punishment
enough for the latter by subjecting them to "psy
chic contagion from diseased morals," and perhaps
as a consequence a complete ruining of their lives.
The reforming of wrong-doers, however, calls for
conditions in penal institutions which shall be the
means ot' relieving inmates of what criminal tenden
cies they possess, and not of implanting in them

Stone and the Legislature
Somebody remarked that President
Wilson will now have an easy time of
it with no "Congress on his hands,"
which reminded a bystander of this
story: Jt was after tfte Pennsylvania
legislative session of 1901, a most tur
bulent. one. in which Governor Stone
was continually harassed and perplexed
by a very skillful fighting minority in
the House. In fact, the Governor was
kept on edge almost all of the time
wondering what that House was going
to do next. On the day the Legisla
ture adjourned a visiter to the Govern
"Well, Governor, now you can take
a good long rest. There will be noth
ing to look forward to. and there is
no Legislature ahead of you."
Governor Stone looked up at his vis
itor with a quizzical smile on his face,
"That may all be true. There may
be no Legislature ahead or me, but,
man. look at the one behind me."
That was enough.
