School Savings Banks.
To the Teachers of Clarendon -r
Already some of the public in
schools are ordering their School ar
Savings Bank literature and sup- an
plies for the coming year. Trust- ".
ing that many new localities will w
take up this most excellent and de
practical branch of our great I
temperance work, I mention f
again the advisability of present- en
ing the subject at all Teachers' as
Institutes, educational and phil
anthropic meetings- P1
It is a lack of full understand- si
ing of the simplicty of penny
saving and thrift teaching that cr
delays the use of the School Sav- lD
ings Bank system in any school. i
That it is in many of our public
schools with marked good effect Ca
most of our W. C: T. U. women
know. What we ask of them is
that they spread the good tid- da
ings, pass the word along to ev- th
ery school teacher and patron. P(
Tell them that some countries ar
and states are passing laws to Ti
encourage the full establishment gr
of the system. In Canada the Bt
Fielding law enacted last winter th
gave fresh impetus to the work im
in Toronto, and on March 30th P(
a bill introduced by Senator an
Keenan was adopted by the New So
York legislature and signed by ta
Governor Odell. I copy here- th
with Senator Keenan's bill: or
"It shall be lawful for the mi
principal or superintendent of
any public school or schools in vi
the State of New York or for any ri
person designated for that pur
pose by the Board of Education ti(
or other school authority in
which such school shall be situ- o
ated to collect once a week or av
from timeto time small amounts sa1
of savings from the pupils of
said school, the same to be de- *7
posited by said principal or su- ap
perintendent on the day of
collection in some Savings in
Bank in the State to the credit of,
of the respective pupils from ca
whom the money shall be collect- tui
ed, or if the amount collected at li
any one time shall be deemed in- g1
sufficient for the opening of in- au
dividaal accounts, in the names
of said principal or superintend- in
ent, in trust, and to be by him br
eventually transferred to the to
credit of the respective pupils to ce
whom the same belongs. In the grn
meantime, said principal or su- a
perintendent shall furnish to the ne
Bank a list giving the names, sig- m<
natures, addresses, ages' places an
of birth, parents names and such M
other data concerning the respec- lit
tive pupils as the Bank may re- be
quire, and it shall be lawful to ho
use the words 'system of School- ha

A Custom of the American Colonies
Before the Revolution.
d Before the Revolution, miniters of :
l: the Anglican church in those American
0 colonies where that church was estab
s lished by law were remunerated "in
kind" instead of in money. Maryland
gave an incumbent forty pounds of to- &
e bacco a year for every tithe payer in :
the parish, whether churchman or dis
- senter, white or colored. These terms :
e were handsome enough to secure the :
S pick of the clerical market. In Vir
e ginia the stipends represented a fixed :
and unvarying quantity, by weight, of :
the manufactured leaf. These stipends :
were rather beggarly in quantity., In :
o a bad year even the "sweet scented :
>f parishes," where the minister's salary :
[t was calculated on a high prioed and :
,r exceptionally fragrant tobacco, yielded :
k only about $500 a year. The parishion
ers sometimes refused to Induct a cler
"gyman unless he would consent to take
d one salary for serving two parishes. In
d 1758, when the price of tobacco had
, greatly risen, the house of burgesses:
i- passed a law fixing the cash equivalent :
t of debts payable in tobacco at one- 2
gthird their true value, thus wiping out 2
d two-thirds of the Incomes of ministers. I
