Los Angeles is worthy of commen
dation for the enterprise manifested
in school matters. It gives a most
conspicuous position to its principal
school building, which is made highly
pleasant and ornamental. It pays its*
teachers well, thereby inducing them
, to work faithfully. And it has se
cured one of the very best educators in
the State, a man of wide experience
and undoubted success, to take charge
of the schools;
But, with all this, there is one thing
lacking. In other cities of Its size and
Sretensions the Superintendent of Pub
c Schools has some time to devote to
visiting the schools under his charge,
white his place in the High School de
partment is supplied by an assistant.
Here the Superintendent is ex-
Eucted to teach through the school
ours of the day, and still have charge
of the schools in general. Now the
importance of frequent visits to the
lower departments is manifest. How
else is he to supervise the working of
the schools, to make improvements, to
become familiar with his work. The
Superintendent, thoroughly under
standing his duty and anxious to per
form it well, decided upon a plan,
by which, without neglecting his own
schools, he could give attention to the
others. It seemed to work satisfacto
rily. Cert ai nly i t was pleasant for the*
tired teachers and children to have his
* 'cheerful helping presence occasionally.
But it was too great an innovation
upon the established order of things.
Although the people held the greatest
respect for the Superintendent, they
could not quite trust him to act accord
ing to his own judgment; and now he
is almost entirely confined to one room.
Although it relieves him of responsi
bility and really lightens .his labors,
the other schools are deprived of a very
We trust that all who have children
In the schools, will consider this mat
ter, candidly and earnestly, and decide
upon some plan which will be an im
provement upon the present incom
The teachers feel, deeply, the glori
ous privilege of livimr in a town of
sidowalks, this muddy weather. As
we trip daintily along the street,
neither soiling our boots, nor drab
bling our skirts, we thank propitious
fate that we do not have to call a
hack, that will take us to the foot
of the hill, and there unceremoniously
dump us out, because the driver "can
not drive through the mud," leaving
us to climb up as best we can and
charging SI for the pleasure. How
ever'twould have been an easy mat
ter to climb up the "graveled" hill
the paper tells about, and we would
not nave needed a lawyer to settle our
claims to real estate, nor a doctor to
restore breath to exhausted nature.
Under the circumstances we don't
groan in anguish at every fresh out
burst from »the clouds. Once up
the hill, Inside the school-room all
was cheerful; a clean sanded floor,
bright biasing fire—thanks to our in
valuable janitors—bright, eager little
faces looking out from the mud of lit
tle soiled clothes, little commiserating
exclamations, and willing, helping
hands, all —all tend to remove the
sense of injury one might have had,
if it had not been for tho sidewalks.
We were happy to have half a school
and thought those little fellows no
higher, than the mud is deep, will in
after years turn out statesmen, war
riors, etc., etc., if they are as ready to
climb up difficulties then as they are
Cincinnatii—The Cincinnati Port,
closes an article on the brutality taP
the public schools, in the following
words: It- would be a wonder if boys
brought up under such a regime, did
not, some of them, go to fill up the
ranks of hoodlums that infest our city.
But it matters little whether our
schools produce good citizens or not,
so their reports show average profi
ciency of eighty-five or ninety per
cent, in arithmetic, grammar, geo
graphy, etc. In fact, the teachers
nave no time, and no encouragement,
if they had time, to cultivate in their
pupils the virtues of truthfulness,
honesty and sobriety. These things
are not taken into account in forming
an estimate of a teacher's success.
Perhaps the teachers have been ex
cused there, as they have been in Cali
fornia, from the duty of teaching the
principles of morality, truth, justice,
andp«rl«|rsm. It is no longer obli-
upon our teachers to teach their
pupiklle2koid idleness, profanity* and
falsehood. The powers that be have
declared is not now the duty of the
teachers of American children; as it
formerly was, to Instruct them in the
principles of a free government, and to
, trafu. them to a true comprehension of
thVrights, dutled and dignity of Aroer

AMERICAN HCHOOL SYSTEM IN
Germany. — The National Normal
has the following item: "We clip the
following from the Pennsylvania
School Journal. Let it be well used
to puncture the German Swellings
which effect the heads of so many of
our teachers. In the Universal Teach*

burg in May last, Dr. Lange, an emi
itstot quman educator, advocated the
adoption by the German Empire of a
school system similar to that In the
, United States of America, alleging
that in its characteristic features, and
the high results attained it Was supe
rior to any other. Dr. Lange seems to
differ from some American educators

Compulsory Education. — Gov.
Booth In his message says: The statis
tics given show the attendance at the
public and private schools, and the
non-attendance and truancy of census
children for a period of eight years. In
1873 there, were on the census roll 141,
--610 children, of this number 12,507 at
ten (led private schools, and 97,018
were enrolled in private schools; but
only 71,170, or 50.26 per cent, of the
whole attended regularly enough to be
considered pupils. So large a propor
tion do not attend any school as to
give great weight to the argument of
the Superintendent in favor of a com
pulsory system. He also says: "I am
of the opinion that the words 'white'
and 'colored' should be stricken from
our school law. They are a badge of
the past. Every child born on our soil
should have an equal Inheritance in
the institutions of our common coun
try, an equal right to a fair start in the
race of life."
