THE. SUEEST KOAD TO WEALTH IS THEOUGH LIBEEAL ADYEETISINTG !
As the question of increasing the
salaries of tho teachers of the public
schools Is belue discussed with re-
( newed vigor, and aa the School Board
ijfW will meet to-nlglit to elect teachers,
vb proper at this tlrno to make a sug
gestion In that connection.
Thero Is no more important branch
jof work in the school than the teach
ing of drawing and music nnd method
of teachlug those studies should bo
kept as near the standard of perfec
tion as possible.
I That department is now under the
charge of one teacher and It Is recog
nized that tho duties developing upon
that ono teacher are too arduous.
It is therefore suggested that the
acnc'i .uoaru, at ns meeting lo-uignt,
idecldo to elect two teachers for that
'branch, ono to teach drawing and the
other for vocal music.
This Is a reasonable suggestion and
jit is hoped the board will duly con
It la repeated that the combined
work Is too much for one teacher,
LUmrala nn rinnVif. flint nvivrwnrlr In
'THat department contributed to the
death of one of tho best teachers of
the corps and that her predecessor re
signed for like reason. That the
present teacher should complain is not
surprising. Indeed it is surprising
that tho teacher has succeeded in ac
complishing such good work under
tho circumstances. But the accom
plishments of the past cannot be used
as arguments against a division of Its
work. Tho teacher may bear up un-
der the strain for a while, but nature
will eventually assert itself and then'
well, the teacher will bo forced to re
tire and the department will suflei
from the disadvantages that attend
,,he appointment of a new teacher.
To expect good work the Instructor
piust be given fair play and not be
handicapped by overwork.

THE THIRD DAY I
PROCEEDINGS OP THE FAMOUS
UNPLEASANT FACTS DEVELOPED.
Tho Princo of Waloo Tostlflss That
Ho Saw no Orookod Play Tho
Caso Against Camming Bo
llovod to bo Sottlod.
London, Juno 3. Tho Baccarat caso
has thus far doveloped tho following
facts: That Gordon Cummlng signed a
document for tho purpose of securing
himself against tha charge being pub
licly made known, and that ho did not
demand to bo confronted with his ac
cusers, but signed tho damaging docu
ment and left tho bouse noxt morn
ing, ns ho was told to do by Gen. Will
iams and Lord Coventry. This conduct
bo explains by saying that at tha ttmoho
bad lost his head.
That tho Princo of Wales did not nsk
him to sign tho papor, nor was It oveu
mentioned In tho courso of tho interviow
which ho hail with tho Prince.
That Lord Coventry mid Gen. Owen
Williams, who advised him to sign, wero
very old friends, and bo had no reason
to doubt that thoy bellovod him to bo
guilty. Thnt he took no stops to assort
his iunoconco until tho scandal leaked out,
nnd then becauso ho was justified In tho
thought that tho aualr would bo taken
up by his club, his regiment nnd his
friends. So tho cuso stands to-dny, tho
ovldonco given by tho Princo of Wales
not materially affecting tho main Issue.
THo Frllico In tho llnx.
Tho Princo of Walos wont into tho box
looking very much nnnoyed. Ho spoko
with a German accont, showing his em
barrassment. He continually wined his
bald head with his loft hand nnd crossod
ono leg over tho othor. Hi3 testimony
showed plainly that ho still has a follow
fooling for bis old friend Cummlng.
Goil About tho Trial.
Tho Princo of Wales mado a docldodly
favorable Impression ns a witness. His
testlmouy was given with a frankness
that seemed to command tho bolicf of all
present, at thosamo tlmo tho Princo was
unablo to conceal that ho felt himself In
an uuploasant position. His popularity
was shown by tho spontaneous respect
which everybody displayed.
Tho gonernl talk.In clubs and lobbies
13 thnt tho testimony of tho Princo has
sottled tho caso against Cummlng. His
avowal that he had cut Sir William slnco
last September is accepted as stronger
ovldonco of tho Prlnco's belief In Cum
mlng's guilt than If ho had plainly ex
pressed his conviction of such guilt. In
matters of tlio kind tho Princo is known
to bo merciless.
Clubraon genorally scout tho 6tory that
a woman's revongo was at tho bottom of
tho Cummlng exposure. Ono of tho lead
lug mon of tho Marlborough tho Princo
of Wales' own tald last night that It
was a Btory imposslblo to keep, and that
it was well for society and tho army It
could not bo kept. Tho Princo, ho said,
had erred only lu attempting to keop tho
matter secret through his sympathy for
Ono of tho rumor3 floating about la
that Cumming had doubly offondod tho
Prince by his frea remarks regarding tho
Princo nnd Lady Brooke, nnd that bad
Cummlng kopt his tonguo still ns to tbo
Prince and tho lifdy, ho would havo had

London, Juno 8. It appears that
Michael Davttt's paper, the Labor World,
Which he bad proudly hoped to mako tho

of English-speaking worklugmen, has
been a complete failure financially. The
