The Narrow escape of the Great Emanci-
ji.tter Tlirilllng Episode Contributed

Popular Interest in Pep ular Education.
Fer the l.ThLLIGE.CtIl.
We hear se much about the " new edu
cation," the ' improved methods of in in
stiuctieu," the "coming teacher," etc,
etc., that it would seem that if the educa
tional millennium were about te dawn
upon us. Elaborate theeiiesate presented
for the consideration of teachers and school
officials, and lack but their consent and
united actteu te biiug about the uccessaiy
change. Ve need these theories ; w e need
the reforms which they uige, and earnest
tcachcisaie l.ibeiiug iaithtully te accom
plish his result. But, tee often, when
these improvements ate picssed upon
teachers and directors, one impeitaut ele
ment is evei looked : it is the neccssaiy c -
opciatieu of patents, and the suppeit et
the community at large. It is net enough
that teachers and school officers aie in
spired with a zeal in this geed weik ; we
must aieuse the masses and enlist their
sympathies : in piopertion as we de this
will our success be meusuicd, and it is by
no means the least difficult featuic of the
undei taking, although at the outset it
may have appeared se reasonable that
eveiy one must needs agiee te it at once.
People will tell you they want geed
schools, of course ; but hew few of
them aie puticular te enquire into the
essentials which constitute a geed school
acceiding te the modern idea of education.
Hew many have any definite opinion upon
the subject or care te investigate its
niattei . The business man when he comes
home te tea and picks up his daily paper
w ill glance at the news of the day, and
note the items which peitaiu te his pai
ticular branch of business, turn for a mo
ment te the pieceedings of Cengiess, give
a few minutes' attention te the latest po
litical squabble, and finally coming te an
aiticle en "education" lays down the
paper and sajs he is "done with it. " IIc
lias cluldien attending school eveiy day,
but he has neer been inside of the build-
ing wheie they spend se many heuis of I
their piccieus lives, nor lias he taken '
pains te leai n whether the system et in-'
stiuctien is the best possible one for the
meial and intellectual giewth et his oil-1
spnng. lie does net concern ininsell pai
ticulailyi about the facilities for ventila
tion in that room wheie the young mem
bers of his family spend the six weikiug
hours of their school life. These aie mat
tcis for the school beaid te attend te and
he leaves it te them. It is questionable
whether the same man is equally indilfer
ent te the suneundings of his faveiitc tiot tiet tiot
tingheisc,lcaviug the matter cutiicly in the
hands ofhisgieora. Yeu will find upon
iuquiiy that this man leeks into the stable
of his ''gallant steed " eveiy day ; that he
has his eyes en that groom, no matter hew
competent he may be ; he wants te knew
that he does his duty.
Yeu w ill find her&c farrier's books in his
libiaiy, and "heise notes " en Instable.
Yeu may find " Wickersham's Methods of
Iustiuctien," or Bioeks's latest weik en
education somewhere en the shelves,and
you may net. It is a fact tli.it cannot be
denied, that theie is net that enthusiasm
in the public school work which its ini ini
pettance wan ants. Theie is need of mis
sionary efforts te awaken the intciest
necessary te bring about needed reform.
One of the most noted men in America
lately said : "The common school should
be se geed that none ether can live." He
recognized the right of rich and peer
alike te an equal chance for education, as
the only theory in harmony with the ft co
institutions of our government. Hew are
they te become se? By creating a public
sentiment in this diiectien is the only an
swer. In vain de teachers and prom
inent leaders of refeim stiive te ad
vance the school inteicsts while the
masses of the people stand aloof, indiffer
ent te their ellerts. We aie net unmind
ful of the fact that there are in every com
munity ceitain noble men and women who
aie deeply interested in the public schools,
without whose support the earnest t aeher
would often be tempted te despair.
But this class is a minority, and net one
tenth of the people, particulaily the mascu
line half, are as much interested in the
welfare of the schools in their district to
day as they are in the selection of the
presidential candidate ; yet no intelligent
man will deny that the common schools
are the basis upon which the whole stiuc
ture of geed government in this ceuntiy
must rest. It can be a matter of little im
portance te any one save these who expect
office, who is te represent the government
in executive authority? Whoever is put
in office must de his duty. But it is of the
great importance that the children new
grewiug up shall be trained te a noble
manhood and womanhood, that they be
prepared te discharge intelligently the
duties of citizenship, and, above al', that
boys develop a different seit of manhood
from that exhibited lately in the conduct
of prominent politicians of this county in
their political gatheiings. If it is an ex
alted privilege te be an American citizen
holding a free ballet, it is time that theie
should be some dignity in the conduct of
these who exercise this right, instead of
the lulfianism which new chaiacteiizea
every pelitican demonstration.
It is one of the chief duties et the tiuc
teacher te teach patriotism, te impress
upon pupils their future duty and respon
sibility as legislator. We should exheit
them te lend their voice and influence te
maintain the institutions of the govern
ment ; net te ucslcct their duty at the
polls. But alas, when we seek for ex
amples among these who preside ever
such interests new, we are compelled te
hide our faces in shame. Suppose the ver
batim reports of the proceedings of any of
the piimary meetings could be obtained,
hew many of them would be fit te read in
the school room as a pait of the history of
our county ?
Yet such are the examples before the
youth of te day. Let us hope they may
profit by them and despise such practices
when their turn shall come.

Lincoln's Narrow Escape.
Somnambulism Which Greatly Aided a
San Francisce Pest.
The annual recurrence of Lincoln's birth
day, sets afloat new invoices of anecdotes
of the great emancipator, the majority of
which are smoking het from the pen et tbe
hard-pushed paragrapher. There is noth
ing about them, however, se intrinsically
remarkable as the fact that they are all re
printed with solemnity, particularly in the
English papers, bythe readers of whom
they are evidently regarded as gospel veri
ty. Willing te still further lighten the la
bors of our transatlantic brethren of the
shears, we contribute the following plausi plausi
ble incident te the general fund, merely
asking Eastern contemporaries te cut etl
this preliminary paragraph in repriuting
and send us by wire the editorial comment
of the first Londen paper copying
the story. As is well known, the
cares and anxieties of the great war
se weighed upon President Lincoln's
mind as te threw his system into a
condition of nervous sensibility of the
most painful description. He found it
almost impossible te sleep, and when slum
ber occasionally, through sheer weakness,
visited his restless couch, he would arise
and wander about the house, his mind
still busy with the questions of national
expediency ; in fact, Lincoln became, in
time, a confirmed somnambulist, and the
most assiduous caic en the pait of Mrs.
Lincoln and the attendants were necessary
te insure his safety. One night, however,
just after the Feit Pillow massacre, tncy
emitted te attach the small jerk-chain
with which the ankle of the president
was usually fastened te the leg of
his bed, and about 5 a. in. he
was discovered te be missing. Fer
a long time the anxious search
of the distracted household revealed
nothing, until one of the gardeners hap
pened te think of the loef, aud there, sure
enough, they discovered " Father Abra
ham," as he was affectionately called by
these about him, reclining en the very
edge of the cornice of the west wing,, at
which dizzy height fiem the gieund he
was slumbering peacefully. Hew he had
descended fiem the l oef coping above te
his perilous position was one of these mys
teiies solved only in the land of dreams.
It was ev ident at a glance, however, that
it would be impossible te reach the nar nar
iew ledge w hereon he lay without touching
the sleeper, and all could sec that the
slightest change in the centre of gravity in
in awakening would i esult instant destntc destntc
tructien. The newsef thejjiiesident's tenible po
sition spread like wild-lire, even at that
hour, and seen a ilen.se crowd gathered be
neath in the gaidens, awaiting the denoue
ment with bated breath. By this time a
hook and ladder company, which had been
sent for, at lived and began piepaiing their
laddcis for erection te the wall beneath
the new plainly revealed figure, although
hew te place them against the building
without awakening the sleeper by the jar
was the uppei most thought. At this mo
ment a young, pale-faced, regimental sur
geon appeared en the loef, and motioning
theciowdte even greater silence, leaned
ever the edge and pieceeded te gently lower
te the face beneath a sti ing, suspended te
w Inch w as a large sponge. This was filled
with chlorefoiin. In a tew moments the
oblivious president was rendered still inure
unconscious, aud seen his i igid body was
safely appieachcd and lowered te the pave
ment. The net morning (it won't de te finish
this histeiical episode without a poetic
climax) the ready-witted young suigecn
received the president's commission as the
surgeon general of the United States army.
Of ceuise, we refer te General Barnes.
