To tho Honorable Board of Education, Sprlngfieldi
Your Committee on Teachers, Examiners
and Salaries would present the following re
port: All the teachers in the employ ot tbe board
last year are candidates for re-election this
year except Misses Valentine, Mills, Barr and
Yo ingrnau, who decline re-election.
In rlew of the stringency of tho times, we
have not thought it wise to recommend any
general increase in salaries. Still we are con
vinced that in n few case.), In view of long or
specially successful service, or both, a slight
increase should be made, both as as an ex
pressicn of our appreciation ot service already
rendered and as lurnlshing to all a healthful
stimulus to still greater effectiveness in the
future, by thus giving tbe assurance that
merit shall in due time receive some substan
tial recognition. 'A slight Incrrase Is also
recommended in a lew other cases where the
present ralary is lees than that paid to other
teachers in the same grade, or less than that
paid to others who have taught for a corre
sponding term of years In other cases where
an Increase is recommended It is in accord
ance with tbe established custtm of the board
to increase the salary ol new teachers filly
dollars ($50) at Ibe end of the first year, and
City more at tbe end if the second.
Tho High School demands a few words
of passing notice. It certainly ought to
be the strongest and most effective por
tion of our system ol public instruction. It
should furnish an Incentive to scholars in the
lowest Rrades,prompting tbem to do their very
best. Its dlfcipline should be, in a marked
degree, surh as la essential to every well or
dered school. There should be no lack of
harmony ot aim and effort on the part of all
who are directly responsible for its manage
ment. No teacher should be crippled by be
ing compelled to teach a class ol such num
bers that two teachers are needed to do the
Your committee does not attempt to say
where all the responsibility lies for any de
fects which may exist. They would not, by
word or deed, cast any reflection upon the
motives, or character of -any one. But they
are satisfied that tbe highest efficiency can be
secured only by a radical change In tbe teach
ing force, Tbe changes which are recom

I looked on tho brothers with awe, and
traveled with them for oight yearn aa
an assistant. Finally, filled with a
pious dcslro to servo tho snlrits a little
ttnyselfrl got fcold of aTopo alone. I
una my nana tno nest i could imitato
the brother, .to sort of coax' the spirits,
but they parted at if tiny 'didn't care
for my sorrlces, and whetberl wanted
myself tied or untied, '1 'had'to do it
mystilf. I studied knots awhilo and
practiced them, and finally I got ono of
tho other assistantortto'tlormo. ' 'Ibe
result gratttied-me,for I found I' could
Just manage to get out. I kept on
trying and found 1 could get out of tho
,rop let him tie it as he would. Skep
ticism had alroadv-'set In. and! soon
'found myself working, at 1 the other
tricks 6f'tho brothers 'and could 'do
many of thorn. About this time Fay,
who was the old manager of the
brothers, found out that I: had dis
covered their socrets, and wo at onco
started up a corapanr 6f 'two and
'strUck"otT on'otirown "account." 'Wti'
travolod all over tho world, and havo
soon all the tricks going. You hear
great otorles about the tricks of East
ern jugglers,1 and a great many of them
aro puro yarns.'- I saw a newspaper ar
ticle just tho other'day that was full of
thorn, such as a man throwing a rib
bon up in the air, climbing up out of
sight,-falling down in piooe,-and put
ting himself togothcr, and all that. It
isn t so. Tho European magicians are
far superior to tho Orientals.
"Hut it is theraeditiraistic trick that
I am bent on exposing, without hurting
tho business of any roputablo juggler.
To begin with, I think thatSplritualism
puts nioro pcoplo in tho insano asyli.ru
than anything elso except liquor. But
wo can oxcuso tho majority of tho
Spiritualists whon great men allow
themselves to bo easily fooled. For
instance, I was tho assistant at a1 private-
seance which the Davenport
brothers gavo in London'to a number
of guntlomcn, among whom were Dion
Iioucicault, Charles Keado, Algernon
Borthwick, Lord Burry, Cupt. Inglo
field, 'and others. The brothers wero
both' tied in their cabinet. Lord Burry
stepped up and leaned over ono of
them to examine the knot, when tho
other quickly slapped him-on the back.
There was a murmur in tho room.
Theso great mon were struck with awo.
Now, let me tell you, this ropo trick
dopends upon mora physical doxtority,
and tho slap was mado liko a dash and
protly hard; but hero is the descrip
tion Dion Uoucicault wrote ot it: 'A
small white, dulicuto female hand sud
denly appeared above one of tho doors
of tho cabinet It quivered for several
seconds, and thon, slowly descending,
tapped Lord Hurry gently on the
shoulder, and then melted in air.
"It is just lu this way'that otherwiso

"The celebrated theosophistEngling
ton completely dumfouncfed me in Cal
cutta. Three -of us 'were seated by a
plain round table. Two slates' wero
brought in. I took tho two and washed
and wiped them clean. He then guve
me a little piece ot slato-pencll, which
I put between tho two clean slates. He
took bold of .one corner with one hand
and I took hold with the other. We
then clasped our free hands and held
tho slates under the table. Presently
thero was a noiso as of tho pencil
writing, and when we opened the slate
I behold the following: "My name is
Goary. Don't you remember mo? We
used ,to joke of this matter at tho St
George. It know better now.'
"I remarked: 'I know no ono by the
name of Geary.' The slate -was put
under the tame again, and the word
'Geary, Geary,' was written several
times. Other -slates wero put under,
too, and one was brought out with this
on It: 'I am Alfred Geary. You know
me and St. Leger.
"Then I romemborod having met
both mon at Cape Town, in South
Africa, four years before. Geary bad
died three years before. Goary and I
had, joked about Spiritualism at the St.
George Hotel In that town, thousands
of miles away. Well, I had to confess
I didn't know' how the thing was done,
and paid my forfeit But the mystery
is now clear. I learned It soveralyears
afterward. At tho hall in Capo Town,
Africa, whero I performed, thero was a
janitor named Hutchinson, a great
Spiritualist. Englington bad been
thero just after I left, and, of course,
Hutchinson told blm all about me.
That's how ho got his Information, for
the spiritual letter and mediums aro al
ways preparing themselves in this way.
As to now ho wrote tbe communication
on tho slato I found that out, too, and
hnvo done it boforo tho Siebort Com
mission, which is investigating Spiritu
alism, and will soon report. They havo
had Slado and Lord nnd a groat many
alleged mediums boforo them.
Nearly all the Spiritualists are honest
in their 'ridiculous belief, ' however
much accused for dishonosty, and,
stranger still, I bolicvo there is a
chanco niodiuni who speaks in a trance
who really Dolioves in his ugenoy; but

Judge niack'a Memory.
Memory can not bo doponded on to
obsVrvo any fixed law of development.
It is inlte as likely to'take one channel
us nnotlier. Somo people who display
astounding memories in ono special di
rection, and on one particular lino of
thought or occupation, may bo strange
ly wonk In others. Tako, for instauco,
says tho "New 'York Qraphie, the late
Judgo Uliiok, of Pennsylvania. Ho
lived to bu over 60, and woro his age
with Hie case of a well-preserved atn
leto. Shortly boforo he died ho mado
a visit to Europe. What do you think
ho went, to sue? Thero were only threo
things and thoy wero all in England.
An English horso-race, an English
court of assize, and tho field of Runny
nieile, whoro tho mngila charta was
wrung from King John. Barring tho
passion for hortcllcsh hieh always
dominated tho big old judge, tho other
points of .interests to him in England
bear some relation to tho fact that
probably no citizen this country ever
producod has a more profound and in
tricate knowledgo of tho struggles pass
ed through by tho Anglo-Savon race
before constitutional government was
reached. Not considering now his
purely professional attainments as a
lawyer, or his varied accomplishments
in many lields of polite literature, tho
jirdgo was' a 'cyclopiudia of constitu
tional history. IIo never forgot what
ho read, nnd when once fairly aroused
he would electrify with tho depth and
brilliancy of his talk.
Ono night at the Ebbit house in
Washington in February, 1877, during
tho hot days of tho electoral count, a
gentleman made somo remark' that
clashed with tho judge's notious. lie
had advancod somo heterodox views
about tho fundamental principles of
English liberty. Tho implacablo old
judge heard him patiently, taking men
tal notes tho wlillo, and when ho had
finished the judo threw back his head
against the wall, began twirling the in
evitable silver tobacco box between hU
thumb and forefinger, and opened on
his victim with a reply. Thero were
only four present, so the entertainment
was not, of course, "billed" in advance,
nor was thero any effort at oratorical
display. Tho judge quietly unfolded
his stock of information on tho subject.
For nearly an hour thero was a How of
history and prcccdonU aul citation on
this vital themo that would havo
charmed tho illustrious men who talk
ed ut tho Holland house in the golden
prime of Macaulay. His memory was
well nigh incrediblo. In making these
citations from ancient and modern his
tory he would refer to tho very volume
and page whero they could be found.
Before the judge was half through it
became evident enough that some ono
in tliO'small audienco had overestimat
ed his own acquaintance with constitu
tional English history. Ho was more
than satisfied. Tho caso was never ap
pealed. The judge, poor man, so the doctors
say, must certainly havo weakened his
memory by chewing tobacco. Perhaps
this habit was providentially sent as a
check, for, if he had not been held
down by this handicap, ho would have
remembered so much moro that noth
ing would have been left for the doc
tors and tho rest of us.
Tbo Affliction of Money.
You have obsorved tho suicide of a
brokor named Kane, I believe. Tho
only importance of Kane's lito or doath
to mo is the rovlval It brings up ot his
fathor-in-law. Soveral years ago. In
Washington City, I saw a keon little
man who mado shoos at Poughkcepslo,
N. Y., and had accumulated a consid
erable amount of money in that busi
ness. Ho was nominally a Democrat
but his money obtained him tbo Re
publican support. Whilo at Washing
ton ho was gonorally against tho Dem
ocratic party on tho sly. I know blm
a littlo and studied him with moderate
intorest, and it was apparent to me
that ho was designing to havo me write
a speech for him, something which I
never did for anv Congressman, and
my bashfulnoss, and tho old fellow's
bashful ness, as studied by an outsider,
would bavo matched almost any court
ship iu comedy. I think ho never
mado bis big speech, though he per
haps got permission to have It printed.
He would take his creature comforts,
and yet was exceedingly particular
about tho purity of thoso nearest to
him. On ono occasion tho old man
came iu from a Scotchy hind of spree,
which ho somotlmes indulged In, and,
pointing with his thumb to the next
door to him, ho said: "Gentlemen,
now bo particular; I have offspring in
there." I had forgotten all about this
poor old man, with his several hundred
thousand dollars, until I saw tbe other
day that his son-in-law had banishod
nis who irom nis presence, anu men
out his throat with a carving-knife; so
It occurrod to mo that nothlug bad
savod myself and my friends except
our failure to tnako tho same amount
of uionoy. To a fool money is a groat
amictiou. ino loot is sure to do somo
thing wrong with money. Ho will
either go and gamble or go and make
