Th? historic i! settings we have
seen, such as Lee's surrender at,
Appomatox, Signing the Etnaiici-'
pation Proclamation, and scenes
from the French Revolution,'
doubtless have some educational
value to the young. Although they
are so poorly illustrate 1, we be-,
licve nevertheless, that a child who;
has seen these pictures, can be !
more easily taught, and with imnli i
greater inierest, those subjects con j
neeted with those scenes, than he
could if hi h id never seen them.j
Many teachers, in trviug to cm !
plain to their pupils about certain j
phases of life in America, especial- 1
lv illustrated by pictures of the,
west, fire departments, passenger j
trams, city streets and imiui mtis.
una many oilier tilings wnicn tin:
children could not possiblv know
about, the teacher will sec tne!
hands go up, and the sparkle r.f
the eve, as the boy tells that the
thins has been seen by himself in :
the moving pictures. ;
Another educational help is the'
attempt of the children as well is
older persons, in trying to read the J
explanations which precede t h e
pictures themselves. This must j
be done ciuito rapidly in order to
get a full understanding of the
matter to be illustrated.
So we can see some of the dan
gers, and some of the benefits that
go with the picture show as it now
exists. That the possibilities of
its usefulness are verv great indeed
cannot lie gainsaid, and thev are
being very rapidly, and forcibly,
emphasized by many educational
non.reis or me eastern cities ot our
country, who are using, and in-,
creasing facilities, to educate both'
young and eld, bv pictures relat
ing to better habits of life, im
proved health conditions, as well
as illustrations of industries, r.m!
Now, what can we do toward;
improving existing conditions on
our own island? 1
I believe the appointing of per
sons to iiivc-slir.''e the mitaie i"

may help a little, although that
