A LONG STRUGGLE WELL ENDED.
POSTMASTER-GENERAL HITCHCOCK has the satisfatrtlon J
of issuing at tha dona of his terra of office a report of more
profraaa than any predecessor eince the Introduction of two
oant pottage for letters. He has lifted tha fitcal feature of the ser-!
Tie from a deficit to a handiome income. He haa established postal
savings banks and begun the parcel post. Ho leaves the department
euch excellent oonditira that he can safely reoommend a grant of
pensions for postal employees, an increase in the limit of weight
aroel post packages and a reduction of letter postage to one cent I
'4 This record is worth more than brilliance. It is one of lsrge
public benefit and widespread good. Thpre are no jxwsfble means
of calculating how much of benefit will come to all classes of people.
Rach individual gain may not average much, but the Bfrreate must

(teneral is able to say: "The transformation of a deficit into a sur
plus has been accomplished not by curtailing the service but by de-
oping it along profitable lines."
It was back in the Presidency of Benjnmln Harrison, when John
aJrVanamaker was Postmaster-General, that the effort to establish a
parcel post was begun. The fight against private greed and stupidity
has been long and hard. The eomplimevtl of the country to Mr

FOUR WEAKNESSES OF THE SCHOOLS.
THE CONTRIBUTION of Dr. Frank P. Bachman, of Cleve
land, to the school inquiry investigation is ah interesting
were those that preceded it The chief woaknorcs, he say.i,
arc "the administratire system, the course of study, the lark f in
spiring leadership, and unruly children." Borrowing thn unimprov
able language of Dogberry, we may say of thee that the last two
"come by nature" but the first two "are gifts of God." We cannot
compel nature to furnish fas with a continuous succession of inspiring
teachers and obedient children, but we may at len.-t pray heaven for
a now administration and a new course of study.
Before entering upon the prayer, however, wo hntl belter in
quire a little concerning what form of change we are likely to get.
It is much easiar to alter administrative systems and courses of study
than it la to improve them. Ideal plans never fit rcul conditions.
It ia plain enough that a course of study requiring all pupils in a
class to take the same lessons Is bad; that it would bo much better
to fit esch lesson to the child. It might be better still to have a
separate teacher for each ohild. But if even such drastic reforms
wire carried out defects would develop under that regime. The
more complex public instruction becomes, the more confused it must
be. If we demand simplicity snd good order we mnt go back to
reading, writing and arithmetic.
A LESSON FROM COLLEGE STUDENTS.
OMR INTERESTING -idelights on work mid wages of unskilled
persons are revealed in the reports of Columbia -Indents upon
their earnings during the past summer vnention. Those that
worked in bsnks in the city earned an ftTSTafS of 30 a month
Tha same average was earned by students working ns freight clerk-'
or aa platform men in the subway. One student earned $?." a monl
as a day laborer, showing that at the start the banker has no nd
vantage over the man with the hovel. A sailor bfotlffhl back from
his voyage $1 S CO clear, whirh is probably more than either clerk
digger saved in an equal time.
When we pass from the earnings of those that sought wages to
the) profits of those thst worked for themselves we gal considerable
differences. One student who sold cooking utensils netted $200
Another earned $101 by filling pulpits of absent pastors or acting as
proctor at examinations. A third by various occupations. inclndin.7
that of "tree doctor," cleared $510. The only wage earner that
approached these figures was. one that drove an auto. He cleaned
