A small gang of netrrocs were engaged
iu the game of "shooting dice," in one of the

ensued. Harsh words were used, and then
a brick was thrown. The party toward
whom the brick was tossed, whipped out a
pistol and fired. The brick-thrower ran,
turned, threw another brick, and was fired
on again and again, lcing the object of five
honestly intended shots. A wound in the

As soon as court convened, yestcr uy
morning, State's Attorney, W. C. Mulkey,
commenced the argument for tho prosecu
tion, in tho case of tho People vs. Hogaii.
His speech was a systematic, methodical ef
fortone that placed tho people's view of
thecaso before the jury, plainly and strong
ly. It was of thrco and a half hours' dura
tion, was listenod to attentively, and won
for the speaker many honestly expressed
encomiums. Mr. Mulkey was followed af
ter dinner, by Mr. S. P. Wheeler, who, al
though but little given to criminal practice,
of late, made a powerful argument. Ho used
the material In hand skillfully and to tho
best possible advantage. It Is possible that
Judge Allen will take the floor this after
noon; but not probable. In the Meantimo
Messrs. Green and Albright will probably
bo heard. Wo arc not fully Informed as to
tho arrangement. We may safely assume
that all the attorneys will "give us the best
they have in the shop," and as nil of them
are men of learning and reputation, it is al
together likdy that a largo crowd of citi
zens will bo present as listeners. It is our
purpose to give a summary of two speeches,

OUB COMMON SCHOOL SYSTEM.
A LIVE SUBJECT CALMLY CONSIDERED. .
Now that the common schools of tho
country are ontorlng upon a new scholastic
year, tho subject of popular education is re
ceiving much attention.
( Tue Bulletin with all tho better class
of newspapers with which it exchanges
holds, and has ever held, that in tho con
duct of our public schools, and more espec
ially in those of tho cities tho substantial
and useful, havo, to an unwarranted extent,
been supplanted by tho unsubstantial and
ornamental. There is not, as tho St. Louis
Times-Journal alleges, a singlo largo city
in tho United States from which this com
plaint docs not come. It is known, and is
not to bo denied, that while money is being
lavishly expended upon high schools and
normal schools, and in giving instruction in
languages, outside the scope of a common
school education, the doors ore closed abso
lutely against tens of thousands of children,
because of an insufficiency of room to
accommodate them. "The sys
tem," says tho same authority,
has been loaded down with ."branches"
as harmful a3 they aro costly to the pub
lic which is forced to foot the bills. Tho
schools aro uo common schools. They
have gone far beyond their wairaut iu
the curriculum and they fail to furnish
education, such ns it is, to all youths
entitled to it. If tho extravagant out
growth were lopped off and the system re
adjusted upon the origins! idea of ele
mentary education it would be possible to
give to every youth who would claim it, in
struction in the fundamentals of ordinary
education without increasing the cost. It
will no longer serve the purpose of the
rings that hang about the present system to
charge that any proposed reform is tin at
tack upon the public school system, or that
any suggestion looking to economy comes
from an unfriendly feeling against uuv
class, sect or nationality. That reforms are
possible iu the unscientific methods of
teaching whitnow obtain is shown by the
successful effort at Qtiiucy, Mass., of wnich
Charles Francis Adams. Jr., is the careful
historian. Of course Quincy had uot suf
fered as larger cities have, but as in the
school, the text-book publisher stood be
tweeu the scholar and that which was to be
imparted to him. The Quincy case, as nar
rated by Mr. Adams, is worth the telling
for its suggestion of possibilities elsewhere.
By some fortunate accident the town elec
ted school trustees who were not
willing to become tools of the
superintendent. They watched the prog
ress of education nnd were not
pleased with it. The annual public ex
amination passed off well, but it was
a sham. "The t?achers conducted the
cwrcisos over safe ml funiiiliur ground to
a triumphal conclusion in some peculiarly
unnatural bit of childish declamation." But
the real understanding of the pupil was
not tested. The committee thereupon
determined to conduct an examination for
themselves. They found that the children
hail abundance of rules at their tcugues'
end. They found however, that pupils who
knew every rule of syntax and could formally
parse sentences could not compose an ordi
nary letter grammatically. They could not
read any matter outside their text books
without absurd stumbling. In short, they
learned ns parrots learn, and after their
course of training knew no more than
trained parrots. The committee resolved
that the schools should not go on
in thi3 fashion Wl that the remedy
should not involve any increase of the tax
payers' burden. They were busy men and
not able personally to conduct the work of
reformation. They therefore determined
to employ a competent superintendent. The
town agreed, nnd in lTo they engaged a
man peculiarly fitted for the purpose a
teacher who had studied the science of
teaching. Tho multiplicity of studies was
at once discarded as productive of the
merest smattering of knowledge and text
books were in a measure done away with.
Instruction was coutlued to reading, writ
ing and arithmetic, except as gmnmar,
spelling, history and geography were
imparted incidentally with reading,
which was not confined to a
text book and writing which, was uot from
copy but off hand. "The old reader having
disappeared," says Mr. Adams, "the teacher
was nt liberty to put into the hands of the
class geographies or histories or magazine
articles, and having read them first the
scholars might write of thorn afterwards to
show that they understood them. Their at
tention was thus secured and the pen being
continually in the hand they wrote as read
ily ns they spoke and spelling camo with
practice." Tho improvement iu the schools
was Immense. The pupils learned to read
excellently at sight. They wrote quickly and
easily in tho best grammatical
way, not having wasted prec
ious time in studying formulas.
Four hundred out of 500 grammar school
childreii showed at the end of tho the first
year results either excellent or satisfactory.
Tho revolution was accomplished with
admirable success and the cost to tho
town nt tho end was one fifth less than
when it began.
It is a revolution of this kind that wo
urgo iu tho interest of tho children of St.
Louis'. Wo earnestly desire to seo the
machine system abolished nnd tho natural
system adopted. Thero could not bo a
better normal school tlma tho primary and
grammar schools of Quincy. Vutil tho
teachers of the country adopt something of
her system, common school instruction
must remain tho lifeless thing It is at prts
ei.t." For tho Cairo Bulletlu.
"THERE IS DANGER IX IT."
Editor Bulletin: .
The unwiso custom of allowing young
girls to walk the streets at night, is so preva
lent iu this ptaco that I havo often won
dered that you or somo of your contnbitors
have not, long before this, raised a voico
against it through tho columns of The Bul
letin. I was very much pleased therefore
at tho articlo "There is dauger in it," that
appeared in your last Sunday's issue, and I
wish every mother in town would read it
aud h'eed it also.
It certainly is bad enough to allow boys
to remain on the streets until a lato hour of
the night, and parents who suffer their
little sons of a tender ago to thus bo ex
posed to danger, vice and wickedness, are
most deserving of censure ; ami the time will
be when there will come a terrible reckon
ing to those parents who aro thus direlect
iu the duty they owe their boys. But oh !
what can I say to mothers to arouse them
to a sense of their duty, who will permit
their innocent girls to expose themselves to
tho dangers aud temptations which may as
sail tlicm iu their Might walks on the streets,
unprotected by any male relative? How I
shudder for those poor unsuspecting girls
when I pass them on my way to some place
of worship or entertainment, long after
dark, as I hear them accosted, and see them
stop to converse on the street corners with
young men whose morals are far from good,
and records nny thing but clear, who are
lying in wait for jut such young unsus
pecting victims! How gladly would I reach
forth my motherly arms and gently draw
them back from the edge of the frightful
precipice ou which their feet so uncou
sciously stand! But would they hcci
my warning cry, or would it be
possible fur any one to arouse them to a
sense of their danger when their own
mothers have failed to teach them the im
propriety of such a course? "Oh , we don't
mean any harm," they would say. "We
like to talk and joke with the boys ami get
up little street flirtatious." But let me tell
you, my dear girls, even if most fortunately
no real harm ever comes to you from this
departure from maidenly modesty, young
men, although they will talk and laugh
and flatter you when they overtake you on
your night walks, still they do not respect
you, nor are you the girls they would
choose for their wives, and could you hear
the remarks they make about you, after one
of those street interviews, you .would shu 1
der aud grow pale with rage.
But it is the mothers' that are most to
blame. We should teach our childien, and
especially impif ss this upon the minds of
our girls, that it is both dangerous and im
1 modest to walk on the streets without a
suitable escort, after dark. Let us not be
afraid of beginning tuo ear'y to teach this
important fact to our little ones, even if we
begin when they are little toddlers around
our feet. This impression will then grow
up with them, aud they will never forget it;
and the life of some daughters may le
saved from a frightful wreck and the heart
of some mother's from breaking.
It is also a question iu the writer's mind
whether ladies who employ white servant
girls, will not have something to answer on
this score, as well as some thoughtless,
negligent or over indulgent mothers. True,
if the poor girl we have in our employ is
led astray and deserted; then is turned from
our doors as a thing too vile even for us to
come in contact with, and she, feeling her
self an out-cast from ali that is good and
pure, takes up a life of open shame true
this brings do disgrace to us nor jcasts no
shadow on our household; but has it ever
occurcd to your mind, my tender-hearted
Christian lady, that you might, by a little
good advice and motherly interest, have
save l this poor girl from her ignominious
fate! And may you not have to answer
for your carelessness in uot having tried to
sve her from this fate, when you stand at
the Great Bar? Are we not too selfish ux
such matters, and are we not too willing to
shirk nil responsibility of the conduct of
young girls wc employ, never thinking or
caring how or with whom they spend
their evenings even until late in the night
if they only do our work well in the day
time? Are we doing, by this young girl in
our employ, just as we would wish some
lady to do by our own precious child, had
fate decreed that she should have been
placed in the same position of our servant
girl? How many ladies do you suppose wo
cau find who employ white girls that try to
devise some plan that is pleasant and
profitable to tempt their servant girls to
spend their eveuiugs at homo, instead of on
the street or perhaps, in a worse place? Docs
any member of tho family ever think to
converse kindly with her for a few minutes
after her work is done, thus showing her that
you have some interest in her happiness and
well-being; or is she debarred to the cold
cheerless kitchen alone, as a creature that
is uot tit to speak with, except to givo or
ders to? "What 1" exclaims my refined la
dy, with hands uplifted in horror, "Would
you have mo put myself on nn equality with
my servant girl?" My dear woman, a true
lady will uever lose her dignity; although
sho may wear it in groat gentleness
and no matter how kind she may be to her
servant or how solicitous sho is of that ser
vant's welfare, sho will bo io surrounded hy
this gentle, ladj'-liko dignity that no ser
vant, however ignorant, will ever think of
overstepping the lino between them. No
wonder our servant girls are bo trifling
and have such little respect for thcnisfllves
as a class; and I firmly believe that tho
want of interest evinced toward them, other
than sclf-intcrcst in thoso who employ
thera, is in a great mcasuro to blnuio for
tho great lack of morality amongst them.
When ladies utterly refuse to employ a girl
who spends her evenings on tho streets, or at
somo place sho is ashamed to acknowledge
to her mistress, when ladies adopt this
rule, one and all, aud girls find that they
can not get situations in respectable fami
lies with good and suro wages unless tlit-y
conform to this rule, then their morality
will bo improved, uud, as a natural conse
quence, they will make better servants, and
the ladies will ulso be great gaiucrs.
