Thboat GUms Mcnratsly fitted 775 The writer does not desire to be un derstood as objecting to the scale of salaries paid to special teachers Doubt less they earn all they receive but It is earnestly contended that In view of the relative Importance of the branches taught there should be either a scaling up or a scaling down There Is still another phase of our ed ucational system which In Its latter 'day development seems to have mili tated strongly against the greatest use fulness of our schools The extremeleniency of the regulations ot the board of education In dealing with Insubordi nation has had a potent influence in crippling the earnest efforts of con scientious teachers In behalf ot their pupils Public at Large la to Blame The writer Is fully conscious that ap proaching this subject is like treading on holy ground and that It Is the gen eral custom to doff the shoes of com mon sense before entering upfih it The proof of this assertion is found In the attitude taken by public at large whenever the question of discipline in the common schools comes up 4 it would almost seem as If men and wom en of undoubted Judgment and ap proved good sense upon all matter of social ethics abandoned their claim to one and the other when It came to a question ot the control of children 1 It Is probable tbflt no thoughtful per son doubts the necessity of a strict dis cipline backed by the authoritative right to punish any breaches of it for the proper up bulldlng and maintain ing of an efficient army or navy Yet the board of education supported by public opinion has turned loose an army of children of all ages recruited from all ranks ot society upon the long suffering public school teacher and demands that without the shadow of a right to punish with scarcely the right to reprove they shall convert this heterogenous mass Into orderly well trained battalions that shall pres ently go forth conquering and to con quer Always Agaiaat the Teacher Yet when as occasionally hap pens a dispute between teacher and pupils breaks the bounds of the school room and becomes a topic for public comment the unanimity with which It Is taken for granted that the teacher Is to blame and the promptness with which he or she Is held up to popular obloquy and contempt is wonderful to behold Gross Insubordination on the part of the pupil previous good record on the part of the teacher delegated authority from the nothing avails to stem thc tide of public wrath and without leaving their seat the jury return verdict of with sel dom even a recommendation of mercy Itls easy io see that this openly Avow ed' lack of confidence In the judgment and humanity of the teacher must have a moat disastrous effect upon his rels ilons with his pupils and renders still more difficult his already hard task It seems to the writer that In view of the conditions cited above It Is little won der that year by year publie schools are becoming fiore ornamental and leas useful that year by year they are turning out more butterflies and fewer honey bees but what it mbst serious of all that they are by precept and example eliminating from the mind of the Young American' the em bryo dtlien respect for authority def erence to superior attainments and a proper regard for law and order The Explanation of It A little Jap was on trial in the police court for defrauding an Innkeeper lie had testified in bl own behalf that be hud paid hl room rent for a mouth "Bow much did you pay?" asked the prairuung mioruey The little Jap sat and stared at his questioner The query was repeated of Everybody glanted st the clock and observed that the time was correctly given "Yes quarter to 11 but I want to know how much room rent you paid" "Quarter to repeated the Jap don't 'understand How much money did you fell you quarter to The question was repeated In various form but that was the only answer the Jap would give and lie grew more vehement with every repetition He was locked In a padded ceil tn tho

Although almost nine years old still had difficulty In spelling very short and easy words But now and then he showed a gleam of something like in telligence One day a younger scholar asked the teacher how to spell kind ot asked Qis teacher i By a coincidence another child pres ently wanted to know bow to spell "What klnd id do you mean?" the teacher inquired That afternoon tn thc pelling daa the

young minds are not exhausted and the youug bodies worn out long be? fore the schooldays are ended It is the growth of the desire on the part of thj American public for the more ornamental branches of educa tion which has in the last ten years almost doubled the average cost per annum for each pupil In the public school It Is owing to this same spirit that so many thousands of the children are

Youths and maidens fitted for the peremptory duties of life that demand their atten tion almost before they cross for the last time the threshold ot their school or dilettante adolescents with a smat tering of many things an accurate work a day knowledge ot nothing!
