WHAT DO THEY NEED.
EASTER CELEBRATION IN ROME.
Hew St. Peter'a Looked When Lighted Up.
The Players and Their Plays Famous Tea
The Scheel Superintendents' Convention.
Fer the IntelheejiXEK.
The coming convention of county super
intendents at Harrisburg will be looked
forward te with mere than ordinary inter
est. That there are weak points in our edu
cational system, which call for immediate
action, no one .will pretend te deny. It is
said by European critics who have made
our institutions a study that in the United
States everything depends upon the elec
tions. Hew true this is we all knew. And
upon no branch of our national interests
does the change operate se disastrously as
upon the progress of education. Our
growth is net steady. It has lluctuated
between the ascendancy of the different
political factions like the unsteady waves
of ocean billows, subject te adverse gales
and storms. Before wc can hope for steady
and smooth sailing wc must reach the
ocean level of the political sea. The school
interests must be placed beyond the surge
of petty politics. Se long as school officers
arc elected by party interests our schools
will continue te be, mere or less, a lottery
in the political scramble for power. In hew
many instances have we seen a man elected
as school director simply because he was
a strong party man and theicfore should
have an office ? Hew many school-beards
arc there which in reality arc nothing mere
than rings? It is a fact net te be denied
that any man is eligible te the position of
school director who may receive the nom
ination and support of the party who "runs
him," and this tee without any regard te
his fitness for se responsible a position.
The indilfercncs of the government in
this particular is the mere remarkable in
asmuch as it exists in no ether department
of legislation. In seeking all ether posi
tions some standard of qualification is
necessary if the candidate hopes te be suc
cessful, but in selecting officers te direct
the course of the common schools the offi
cers themselves may be illiterate provided
they secure the necessary majority of
votes. The absurdity involved in this re
lation is se apparent that comment is un
necessary. Evidently, then, here is an
evil that calls loudly for such a reform as
will obliterate this unnatural condition.
As well might wc expect a man te build a
schoolhouse who had never learned the
carpenter's trade as te expect one with no
education te properly direct the course of
instruction te be pursued in the school
room. If thcic is any one point mere vital than
all ethers in the welfare of the state and
nation, it is the education of the future
citizens of the commonwealth.
If there is any one office above all ethers'
sacred for the geed of the whole people,
and deserving their liberal consideration,
it is the office of school director ; and
sooner or later this demand must be met.
That there are many excellent directors
giving their labors gratuitously year after
year, with a devotion which exhibits the
most exalted patriotism, we all acknowl
edge, and it is te secure the honor which
is justly their due, and often ungratefully
withheld, that we insist upon a standard
of qualifications for this important posi
tion. Nene feel this need mere than effi
cient directors themselves. Hew many
cases de wc knew in which the faithful
and thoroughly competent director was
forced te give way te the strong party
man, though incompetent, who was nomi
nated and elected te fill his place ; and
what a substitute he made ?
Is it any wonder that foreigners point
te these weaknesses and reproach us for the
instability cf our educational progress ?
These arc unwholesome facts, and we
may as well leek them fairly in the face
first as last ; as the convention is bound te
de at the coming session.
Anether evidence of weakness lies in our
want of a national system of education,
which shall be represented by a "minister
of public instruction," who shall be a
member of the cabinet. Here again we
are behind the old world in our education
al management. "We de net give our com
mon schools the prominence which they
deserve and must attain before they shall
reach the point of excellence te which wc
aim. The great need of our schools at
present is permanency. The school inter
ests are kicked like a feet ball from faction
te faction and made subservient te the
interest of politicians. Te place them be
yond the reach of such influence is the
educational question of the hour.

An Easy Death.
Dr. Sam Jehnsen was a dear lever of
tea, and drank it freely. On a certain oc
casion he chanced te be taking tea in com
pany where was present a woman who net
only held the fragrant herb in holy horror,
but who believed it te be "poison. She sat
near the doctor, and beheld him receive
his sixth cup. She had borne it thus far
in silence, but when she saw the geed man
about te empty another cup, after having
drank five of them, she felt it her duty te
speak, which she did, feelingly and em
"My dear Docter Jehnsen, de you knew
what you are doing ? De you knew that
you are drinking poison ? If you are given
te that habit you may be sure it is killing
The burly doctor looked at her, first in
amaze and then quizzically, with the wait
ing cup suspended. With a reverent nod
he replied :
"Madam, I thank you for the concern in
my welfare, but en my account you need
net be alarmed. I have been many, many
years at this work, and if, as you say, it is
killing me, it must be an easy death te
die. Let me hope that your exit may
be as .vigorously healthful and as calmly
And he raised the cup te his lips.
A physician who had been called te at

" My dear, sir, de you expect medicine

"I should say slew," replied Fentsnelle,
sipping away at his beverage. " L have

Easter in Berne.
In the old days of Reme, when the Pepe
was absolute ruler, and before the present
king of Italy lived there with his sweet,
young wife, holy week, the last week in
lent, which ends with Easter Sunday, used
te be celebrated se prettily that strangers
went from far and near te see the specta
cle. There were all sorts of precessions
in the streets, line music in the churches,
ceremonies in the great basilica of St.
Peter, and everybody looked happy ; for
the Italliaus seemed a great deal mere
like grown up children than like men and
women. They are fend of all bright,
pleasant things, and though it is their
religion te observe the rites of holy week,
the doing se gladdens them, for ether
But all these ceremonies cease at the
close of Easter Sunday, which is made a
sort of beautiful climax te the week of
celebrations. Everybody who can get
there hurries te St. Peter's, the largest
church in the world, you knew.
There all the important religious cere
monies of Hely Week take place, and
everybody wants te see them. St. Peter's
is en the ri;ht bank of the muddy Tiber,
which flews swiftly through Berne, divi
ding the city somewhat as the river Seine
divides the city of Paris. The largest per
tien et the town, where most et the people
live, is en the left side of the river : se
when they go te St. Peter's and that is
very often they have te cress the bridge
of St. Angcle. The Castle of St. Angele
is a big, round fortress en the ether side of
the Tiber ; and from there a street leads
directly te the great place, or piazza, as
the Italians call the curious square before
At each corner of the front of the church
begins a grand covered walk, called a col
onnade. Fer some distance this covered
walk, which has four rows of handsome
pillars te support the reef, comes straight
from the front of the church. Then it
curves out into an oval form, and nearly
surrounds the open place, which would
otherwise be a square. Leeking down
from the reef of the church, the colonnades
seem like great stone sickles, the handles
joining the building, and the blades the
points toward each ether inclosing the
piazza. The colonnades, favorite places
for the Remans te walk in when the piazza
is sunny and het, are always crowded
when the people arc waiting te sec or at
tend any of the famous ceremonials of the
St. Peter's itself is se big, se much big
ger than any church you and I have ever
seen in this country, that I am afraid yen
would get very little idea of it if I should
say it was G915 feet at its longest part, and
430 feet at its widest. It is" built, like
most Reman churches, in the form of a
cress, transept, and separate from the body
of the cress, or nave, rises the great dome,
which is 40:i feet from the fleer te the top.
Beside this great dome, arc two lesser but
net little ones, and six, I think, really
small ones ; and it is the lighting of all of
them which made St. Peter's se magnifi
cent en Easter Sunday evening.
On Easter Sunday morning, there used
te be a service in St. Peter's, in which the
Pepe took part. The great interior was
crowded with ladies and gentlemen, the
ladies all wearing black dresses and veils,
and the gentlemen, evening dress or hand
some uniforms. There was beautiful
music, and chanting by the priests ; and
after it was ever, the Pepe was lifted in
his great chair of state, and home en the
shoulders of men in a long precession from
the church. About neon he appeared en
the gallery in front of the big dome and
ever the great deer of the church, and
looking down en the crowds in the piazza
below, gave them his blessing.
This was a very pretty sight. The place
was full of people ; fathers, mothers, girls
and boys, babies held up their mother's
arms, and little bits of toddling children,
all dressed in their best, with bright color
ed garments and shining chains and rings
the Italians love jewelry and wear all
they can get all looking bright and happy
waiting patiently for the pope te come.
Even the strangers who did net think as
he did were glad te see him, for he was a
gentle, kindly old man, and looked very
handsome, standing above the people in
his white robe and rich, red cloak.
But the most splendid part of the festi
was when, just at dusk, the whole church
of St. Peter was illuminated, as you see in
the picture, by forty-four hundred lamps.
These were hung en all the pillars of the
portico, the corners of the walls, the angles
of the domes wherever, in fact, the line
of light could bring out the shape of the
building. Even the great cress ou the big
bronze ball at the top of the large dome
looked like a cress of fire. If the evening
were dark, the stone walls of the building
seemed te disappear, and a monster cage
of flame te stand in its place.
About an hour and a quarter after sun
set, when the people had begun te grew
tired of this spectacle, 230 workmen, in
almost as little time as it takes te tell it,
change the lamps for blazing torches. This
was the most imposing sight of the day,
and the people waited for it patiently for
hours. It was well worth seeing, tee.
Travelers steed in the streets, side by side
with the Remans, that they might witness
what they could 'never witness in their
own countries. Perhaps the sight will
never be observed in Reme again, because
for some years before the gentle Pepe Pie
Nine, died, and ever since the new Pepe,
Lee X., was chosen, the custom of illumi
nating St. Peter's has been discontinued.
These who have seen it knew hew beau
tiful it was, and hew delighted the Reman
people were after spending the day in idly
wandering about the city ; whole families
together visiting, chattering, and enjoying
the sunshine, with the illuminations, and
the fireworks that sometimes rose high
ever the gloomy castle of St. Angcle and
fell in the dark, hurrying river.
The castle of St. Angele was built by
the Emperor Hadrian, for a tomb for him
self and his descendants, and for a long
time their remains were placed there. But
when the Goths came down from Germany
they turned it into a fortress without ask
ing anybody's leave, and a fortress it has
remained ever since. Lillian Gilbert
