The prize r.vstem not only sub
ordinates the will to selfish motives,
but it often so intensifies effort to
Health gain the coveted prize or
endangered, as to endanger honor
health and future usefulness. Its
strongest appeal is usually to bright
and over-ambitious pupils, who, asa
class, are nervous and excitable,
and easily stimulated to over-exertion.
tVThe prize system has an ap
palling list of victims who have
died early, or are "invalids for
life." Superiority i n scholastic
.attainments is dearly bought at the
sacrifice of health and physical
The writer recently had a con
versation with a father whose
daughter is standing at the head of
her class (as standing is determin-
Illuitration. ed) in a great high
school. At the close of the first
year she was so completely "brok
en down," that he took her to the
seashore for several weeks to re
gain strength. At the time of our
conversation, she was closing her
second year, pale and nervous;
and the father was doing his best
"to keep her up," as he expressed
it, until vacation should bring her
needed relief. Nor is this prospec
tive "medal pupil" a rare excep
tion. Few of the medal or honor
pupils known to the writer in the
past few years, have left school or
college in good health, this being
specially true of the girls.
The awarding of prizes on
the second basis described above

Second, is not as objectionable as
Plan, the prize system proper.
The plan includes such practices
as the offering of ppzes (l) to pu
pils who attain a given result in a
specified time; (2) to those who
reach a given class standing; (3) to
those who are not absent or tardy
in a month or term, etc. It is seen
that while these devices may in
volve a trial of one's obility, or
skill, or fidelity, with a desire for
success, they do not necessarily
involve the desire to surpass others,
and hence may be free from emu
lation and rivalry. The incentive
involved may be characterized as a
desire for excellence without re
ference .to any other person as sur
passed. All of the pupils in the
class or school may attain the re
Deaths In 1910
Washington, January 24. Bul
letin 109 on "Mortality Statistics"
for 1910, the latest on the subject,
has been issued by Census Director
Durand. It was prepared under
the supervision of Dr. Cressy L.
Wilbur, chief statistician for vital
The figures relate to the census
bureau's death registration area,
which on July 1, 1910, had an es
timated population of 53,843,896,
or 58.3 per cent of the total for
continental United States. Preli
mlnarv nress summaries relative to
the death rates for the registra
tion states and cities, and concern
ing infant mortality, were given
out sometime ago.
The total number of deaths in
1910 from all causes at all ages, in
cluding unknown ages , was 805,412.
Of these 154, 373 were infants un
der 1 year; 33,080 were 1 year old;
14,727 were 2 years old; 8808 were
3 years old; 6331 were 4 years old;
217,319 were under 5 years; 17,943
were from 5 to 9 years old; 235,262
were under 10 years; 31.508 were
from 10 to 19 years old; 62,957
were from 20 to 29 years old; 68,
957 were from 30 to 39 years old;
72,935 were btween 40 to 49 years
old; 81,540 were between 50 to 59
years old; 96,651 were between 60
and 69 years old; 96,000 were be
tween 70 and 7V years old; 51,401
were between 80 to 89 years old,
and 7974 were 90 years old or over.

While this mode of awarding
prizes may be free from competi
tion and emulation, it is still open
to the serious objection that it sub-
Objection, stitutes artificial inccn-1
tives for natural, thus obscuring!
the true ends of study, and subvert-!
ing the normal action of the will.
Its effects in character will lie more
fully shown below, in considering
the granting of privileges as incentives,-
a system which is usually
based on this mode of determining
superiority or merit.
It seems proper to note, in pas
ing, that rewards or presents be
stowed after praiseworthy results
have been attained by pupils, and j
Rewards without prior promise of
not their bestowal, do not
promised, fall under the prize sys
tem. It may also be questioned
whether this mode of rewarding
pupils for successful effort proper
ly comes under the system of arti
ficial incentives, since the reward,
whatever it may be, does not enter;
into the pupils' efforts as a motive.
They are at most only artificial re
wards, not incentives; and their in
fluence, whatever it may be, can
only affect the pupil's future
effort. The objections urged above
to prizes and honors do not apply
necessarily to such rewards. A
present to a pupil without prior
promise is simply a token of the
teacher's appreciation, and, as such.
it may help the pupil to a higher!
appreciation of the real results for
which he is striving, and thus in
crease their power as natural in
centives. Our appreciation of any I
attainment is increased by its known
ally by those in whose superior
judgment we have confidence.
This fact is sometimes urged in de- j
fense of the prize system , but it
neither removes nor lessens the se
rious objections to its use. There
are certainly better ways of increas
ing a pupil's appreciation of school
