A few years ngo a Trench gentleman
in America, M. Thiry, began to agitato
(ho subject of school savings banks for
children. His plan was for tho young pco
plo to Bavo their small sums, from n cent
up wauls, deposit them with tho teacher
each Monday morning, and havo tho
amount recorded on a card, which tlie
pupil kept. As soon as tho sum contrib
uted by any ono pupil amounted to a
quarter, tho pupil received a bank book.
Tho money of tlio school was to bo de
posited in a regular savings bank, his own
sums rogularly credited to each pupil.
Monsieur Thiry had been a teacher in
Trance. Ho had seen tho school savings
bank system tried thcionnd elsewhere
in Euroiic. Belgium has at this time
1,700 schools, that havo on deposit $078,
1C7. Liverpool has 180 schools that havo
saved $122,500. Franco, tho most thrifty
and careful nation on tho globe, has in
bank school children's savings to tho
amount of .$2,407,030. This was collect
ed from 23,375 schools.
Monsieur Thiry thought if tho system
could bo adopted in tho United State?
it would teach our Yankee cliildrcn early
to havo habits of thrift and to under
stand business methods. His idea is
slowly being adopted in various parts of
tho country. Thoro aro now in tho Union
fifty schools that uso the savings system.
They havo already 830,000 on deposit,
all saved fiom tho nickels and small
sums of tho childien. In a bank in Long
Island City, a boy 11 years old has
5437.23 to ills credit. Tho children often
cam the money themselves.

Jaok Rabbits Vs.JPaBteur.
Soaio years ago tho Frenchman, M.
Pasteur, was believed to havo discovered
a remedy for hydrophobia. It was to
inoculato tho patient with tho attenuated
virus of rabies. For this purposo Pas
teur kept hundreds of dogs at his exper
imenting quarters. Tho animals were
tortured without mercy, it is said, in or
der that M. Pastour might pursuo his
theory. Patients ,who had been bitten
by alleged mad dogs were sent to him
from all over tho civilized world. Tho
patients wcro not often suiloring from
rabies when they wero sent to him.
They went because it was feared they
v ould havo rabies. They wero inoculat
ed and in nearly every instance recov
ered. This was considered a triumph
for Pasteur. In most instances it was
forgotten, however, that thero was no
certainty tho patient would havo hod
rabies if ho had not gone to tho French
man's hydrophobia studio.
At nny rate, though, Pasteur was high
In public favor for several years. Re
cently, however, thero is a reaction.
Tlio Australian government offered a re
ward of $100,000 for nny plan that would
rid tho country of tho rabbit pest Pas
teur proposed his homeopathic inocula
tion system. He Bent a large quantity
of virus to Australia. Rabbits wcro
caught and plentifully inoculated. But
thoy did not go mad, they did not bito
other rnbbits and they did not die.
Tho plan was a dead failure as tried
on rabbits. And now,pcoplo are begin
ning to think it may havo been a hum
bug all along. Meantime tho ono fact
that is absolutely certain is tho cruelty
that has been practiced on Pasteur's dogr
all these years.
Tho Century magazine says if America

A company has really been formed
and is nt work to utilize some of the
waterfall nt Niagara for tho production
of electricity. Somo of tlio rock behind the
falls will bo excavated. From tlieso jx
cavations pipes will bo thrust into tho
fall, and will draw oil water which will
turn tlio driving wheels for dynamo ma

it can bo conveyed long distances and
utilUod as a motivo power for machinery.

at least two years' steady work to com

Until then tho United States can mako
no showing for a navy. This fact is de
plored by many Americans, who have
already forgotten apparently what was
dono on tlio breaking out of tho war. If
a war should again arise, tho whole re
sources of tho country would bo applied
to tho construction of a navy. In a few
weeks war vessels would bo fitted out
which would nnswer all purposes. Tlio

Washington is on again. Those who op

and that a now ono would bo useless and
extravagant. Thoso in favor of tho new
mansion, on tho other hand, assert that
tho old houso to steeped in malaria and
sower gas. Tho business of tho presi
dency has grown so sinco the country
has enlarged from thirteen states to
forty-two, that tho wholo Whito House
is now needed merely for an onjco for

no privacy, it is said. Even Baby Mc

A Colored rrodlgy.
Charleston is tho home of ono of the
most wonderful little algebraists of tho
age. He is a littlo boy who is only 13
years of age, black as was over made of
puro African ore, and as uncouth in
somo respects as a vounir 'Caliban. Ii
was said of him, by a gentleman who
imowB nun weu, tnat no is "remark
ablo for almost everything but his per
sonal pulchritude." He is absolutely at
homo with x, y and x in all their pos
sibilitics. He knows all about co-cill-cients
and powers and square roots,
and ho can't bo beat on tho binomial
theorem. Tho wonder of it is that his
patents are very humble people, who
wouldn't know a square root if thoy
tell over it on a country highway.
This boy will soon arrive at a station
where higher education for infants
must bo pushed up a notch or two. A
great many of his fellow pupils are
naturally quito jealous of his reputa
tion at nis school, and thoy speak of
him as that "smart algebra nigger."
Physically ho is something unique His
head, hko tho partht is flattened at tho

niado up of aprotruding promontory
(a Capo of Good Hope) and a back
ward rango of the brain behind tho

manner imaginable, and especially as
to his pants, tho southern and rear
parts of which are usually several do
grees below tho horizon. Altogethor,
ho is littlo, odd and a genius. Ho is a
pupil in ono of tho colored public
schools, nnd his teacher is quito proud
of his prodigy in science and ano
