From th;.i kindergarten a complete school was de

worthy of being actualized; and in this sense the
school has for its aim the salvation of souls. It
is an error to devolve mer, -ly upon th<- church and
the Sunday schools the task of awakening the
higher aspirations. The daily school, which influ
ences its pupils live, days out of the week and dur
ing the entire period when they are most Impres
sionable, must co-operate In this task — yes, must
perform th.- major part of it. if it is to be ade
quately carried out.
Second— The school is a democratic school.
While in the country districts and the smaller
towns the pupils of our public schools embrace
alike, the children of the wealthy and of the poor.
in the large cities the public schools In certain
quarters are almost exclusively availed of by the
poor, In other quarters by persons of middle for

says that th" estimates fr.r each of th-> last five
fiscal years show an average annual Increase
from the estimates of the previous year of about
•*44..»4m».<:im >. The estimates for the next year
show a net decrease of $31,420,400, compared
with the estimates submitted for the current
fiscal year, and the decrease as compared with
the current appropriation* is $20,947,960.

army and the Military Academy, show a net
reduction ••( S'-M.St ;•_»,« c'l from the estimates for
I'.m>;;. The pay of the army is reduced more
than $3,000,000 In consequence of the reduction
<>f the force. The cost of the subsistence is re
duced more than $3,500,000, . nd the expense of
barracks and quarters in "..•■ Philippines is re
du< • d si.m,«.<mm» for th • same reason. The cost
of army transportation has been reduced $8
• hhmkni as a result of the peaceful conditions
now existing In the archipelago.
It is explained at the department that the
increase of $149,800 asked for the Signal Service
is largely to enable the Signal Co pa to provide
proper Installation and maintenance of artillery
lire control in our seacoast defences.
