THE KAltLY EDUCATION
JOHN STUAitT JllIiL.
Tho autobiography of John Stuart Mill
has just boon published in London,
From an adviiuco copy, tho Now York
'Tribune of Octobor thirty-Ant madn
ome length extracts. Among t.um
wero some relating to tho early education
of Mr. Mill, which was carried on under
tho diroct supervision of his father, Mr. J
James Mill) himsolf a raun of carefully
culturod mind. Under his tutllago, his
son began to learn Greek when butnlittlu
past throo years or ago, and until his
eighth year, was taught In no other
branch of education, studying during this
time, Easopls Fables, Herodotus, Memo
rial, of Socrates, Dialogues of l'lato, etc ,
at tho age of eight years, ho bogan tU
tudyof Latin, and with tbo exception of
Arithmetic, was xnado to pursue none of
"Ihe studies usually rammed t tb young
itudent. Instead of these his tiiao was
devoted to the study and digos
tlon of history, biography, etc., tho
plan pursued bolng to repeat to his father
each morning from notes mado by him
elf, the ubstance of what had boon read
the day before. Of the mccen of this
course, Mr. Mill says:
I have thought that In an age In which
education nnd its improvement uro tho
iubject of moro.if not of profounder utudy
than at any former period of English hit.'
tory, it may bo usoful that thoro hould bu
ome record of an education which wus
unusual and remarkable, and which,
whatever else it might havo done, hat
proved how much more than is commonly
uppoeed may bo taught, In thoso early
yean, wblcn, in tlio common modi-' of
wbkti called instruction, are little better
Jo the light of Amorican ideas regard
ing the education of tho young, that of
young Mill may appear (lingular and
forced, but it result earnod for him the
reputation of bolng the mctt thoroughly
educated man of hi time. A study of
fell life and the manner In which LI
mind waa directed, furolihe food for

tho subject is, or ought to bo, interesting
to tho parents nnd people generally of tho

Wo boliovo tho teachors are, for tho most

Tho rooms are, with fow exceptions, com

ThU department of thu public schools

at Miss Kogors' school Is impressed with
tho ordor which prevails, nnd tho genornl
air ol sludiousness and attention riotlcon-
bio among tho littlo pupils, both
when In their soats or In

remarkable. Miss Kogors teaches by

hor own upon tho best plan of dealing
with thu littlo ones, nnd to ono who ro

lieved, lying In this direction. Miss Koss
is n pleasant-voiced lady of rather ncrv
ous manner, who, if wo nro to Judgo by

occupation with enthusiasm. Her school
room, furnished similarly to MIs Kog
ors', is a co-.nfortablo one, nnd contrary to
that lad y's,all its appurtunancci aro in good

though these too, nro mori children, the

wholo country would ngreu to such a pro
vision of law. 1'rompt redemption of
nutional bunk notes would bo insured, but
redemption of this vast amount of circu
lating notes if redeemed but ono a year
would remilt in great loss to tho pooplu of
the United State. A yitom of redemp
tion of tlii kind would aluu increase tho
rata of exchange from 1.10 of ono per

year between different cities of the Union
to from onc.half to ono per cent., thus ro
Hiring to a considerable degrco tho con

however, undoubtedly result In tho return

also give what Is expediently desirable at
present, elasticity to currency. In ordor
to insure prompt redemption of national
