An encouragig sign of school im%
provement ie the constant criticism
of methods and systems by our edu
cators themselves. Mr. Hand's letter,
published yesterday, was pertinent,
and should receive the attention
of all sdhool boards.
At the Southern education conference,
recently held in Richmond,
President Whitfield, of the Mississippi
State College for Women, presented
a report of a committee which
discovered these defects in the existing
It does not teach health.
It does not train for [home life.
It does not train for parenthood.

enimc teeumg auu uuiuiug.
It does not teach how to make sanitary
and convenient homes.
It does not teach how to make beautiful
It does not train for proper use of
leisure in the home.
It contains no training for political
citizenship that is worth the name.
Ifhe criticism is severe and unfortunately
it applies to very many of
our schools and colleges. A criticism
is not worth much, however, unless
its author can suggest a remedy.- If
these educators can select those
studies of genuine value, while they
repudiate the non-essentials, if they
can suggest to the minds of the pupils
the various occupations that might
awauen a latent taient, ir auuve an
things they can teach sincerity; in
effort, and thoroughness in all tasks
however small, then may th-ey begin
to find some light in these dark places.
It is not the fault of the high
school boy or girl that they finish the
fo-n voarc rvf R^hnnl life and S'O nut. to
/ meet the world utterly ignorant as to
how or whe.re they may make a livelihood:
it is not tiie fault of the hundreds
of graduates who leave college
next month, that they hesitate what
they may do, knowing so well their
unpreparedness for doing anything.
. The fault is in the system, and the
system being impersonal, there's no
harm in abusing it, even if it cannot
be made better.?Spartanburg Herald.
The rural school problem is the
most important and far reaching before
the American people today. Its
salut?on the proper way must b^
N gradual, but it will come. The one
great trouble in iJ is section is that
the people have never waked up to
the importance of the subject. The
>rorld i* rnofiiv and making progress
in almost every line but unfortunately
the schools in many places have been
going along in the same old way.
There is need of wise and efficient
- leadership. Too often the leaders and
school men are chosen for positions of
leadership with absolutely no thought
of their efficiency or ability, but for
reasons entirely foreign to any such
Questions. Many of the things enumerated
above cannot come in many of
the schools for many years, because of
lack of money. Many of the schools
/ that have the money do not seem to
have a broad and liberal grasp of the
offiio +viti nr* fho nf it
The improvements' are coming, but
Jftrst the people must be aroused. If
once they see the true conditions and
realize their obligations to the children
of t!his generation, the improvement
of conditions will begin, because
the people are able to do whatever
they make up their minds to do.
The suffragettes in England" have
gone to burning churches. This, it
seems to us, would not help materially
in convincing right thinking people
anywhere that the cause of wo9

Goes Through House Over Protest 01
Minority Members, Who Finally
Become Half Reconciled to it
Washington, May 6.?The overwhelming
democratic majority in the
house today swept through the free
list, bowled over all opposition to free
wool, free meats and other necessaries,
and passed on to consideration
of the hundred million dollars income
tax feature of the Underwood tariff
bill. Not a dent was made in the bill
as approved by the ways and means
committee majority, it was expected
the measure would be passed unamended
by the house by tomorrow.
All day there was sparring across
the aisle dividing the democrats and
I the republicans. Many amendments
were offered by republicans in a forlorn
effort to put m. j free listed
articles back on the dutiable list, but
all were voted down with a regularity
that brought smiles from the minority.
Fnaliy when the last of these
proposed chang esdah
proposed changes had been rejected,
Representative Payne precipitated a
lively rules fight by offering a brand
new amendment to create a tariff commission.
Instantly all the parliamentary
sharps on both sides were astir.
Speaker Clark sat next to Mr. Underwood
at the front of the speaker's
rostrum, where Mr. Underwood has
been conducting consideration of the
bill. Representative Fitzgerald of New
York rushed in from the appropria
tions committee, armed with precedents,
and followed by Representatives
Shirley of Kentucky and HardIwick
of Georgia, who joined in the
amendment. On the republican side
Representative Mann\ Representative
Gardner of Massachusetts, Representative
Payne of New York and others
conferred and addressed the house.
It was all over quickly, Representative
Garrett of Tennessee in the
chair sustaining a point of order made
by Mr. Underwod that the tariff commission
amendment was not germane
to the bill.
When Representative Mann appealed
from th'? decision the house sustained
the chair, 164 to 87.
Representative Bull of Tennessee,
chief draftsman of the income tax
feature of the tariff bill, prepared toj
night to resist a campaign by the minority
to amend the details of the pro
j posed law*. He expected a snarp ngnt
: on behalf of the mutual fire insur!
ance companies, which would be taxed
1 per cent, under the measure. Provisions
affecting insurance companies
i were taken almost verbatim from the
| corporation tax law already in effect,
! but to avoid any possible question, a
committee amendment was prepared
! tonight to eliminate even the slightest
variation from the existing laws.
Regular reading of the income tax
; nrnvisinn for amendment was com
i pleted in short order. Perfecting
j amendments offered by the ways and
| means committee were adopted, in!
eluding a provision exempting returned
investments in insurance and a
clause changing the terms regarding
mutual fire insurance companies so
as to allow them to deduct from their
gross incomes the amount required
under the State laws to be placed in
i their reserve funds.

Federal Protection for Express Shipments.
The first violation o? the new federal
law?known as the Carlin act, was the
stealing of an express package in one
of the Chicago depots resulting in the
arrest of the offender and placing him
under a $5000 bail.
This act imposes a maximum fine of
$5000 or imprisonment of not more
than ten years for any person convicted
of unlawfully breaking into any
railway car containing interstate or
foreign shipments of freight or ex
press or m meauug ux" uuuuiu/ig uj
fraud or deception from any car, depot
platform, vessel or wharf any freight,
express or baggage which constitutes
or is part of any interstate or foreign
shipment. While the Carlin act in no
way infringes on the jurisdiction of
the State courts, it puts the whole
power of the federal department of
justice behind the detection and prosecution
of persons guilty of stealing
from cars or depots since it will be
practically impossible for thieves to
distinguish between interstate and intrastate
As the Carlin act becomes better
known and understood, the petty
crook will look upon an express package
in transit with the same reverence
and awe as he has been taught i-> respect
all mail matter, however tempting
its purloining may be to his criminal
