Also Moral and Religious Training in Public Schools Is Discussed By Mrs. Flora
Let us ask, first, for what is educa
tion? And why do the states expend
large sums of money on the education
Public educatoln is a people's de
liberate effort to make a higher and
a nobler race. Then why do we not
have special moral and religious train
ing in our schools?
Some may sas' that these things
should be. taught in the home. It is
true that the home should be the most
sacred, durable and potent of human
institutions, but what are the homes
of many of our children? Go through
the crowded districts of many of our
cities. They areeenters of disease, vice
and crime. All the conditions which
surround childhood, youth and woman
hood in crowded tenement quarters
make for unrighteousness. The most
terrible of all is the indiscriminate
herding together of all kinds of people
in close contact the fact that mingled
with the drunken, the dissolute, the
improvident, the diseased, dwell the
great mass of respectable working men
of the cities with their families.
A city missionary thus describes a
midnight tpttr of exploration: "A few
steps out of' Broadway we came to the
vilest den of infamy. In one room, not
more than 10 by 12 we came upon 18
human beings, men and women, white
and black, American and foreign born,
who there ate, slept and lived." There
is little wonder that whenthe Buffalo
members of the New York state com
mission of 1900 examined into tene
ment house conditions, they exclaimed:
""New York should be abolished."
Boston has some of the worst tene
ments and" Cincinnati follows next.
Even third and fourth class cities have
made ominous beginnings in develop
ing these 'evils. How can we expect
morality and religion to be taught in
Defect Ih Public Schools.
"Whatever may be the remedy, here
is a serious defect in our public schools.
The results of the existing system, by
which so large a proportion of children
go uninstructed in religion, and un
trained in morals, are seen in our low
ethical standards, and in the wide
spread spirit of lawlessness. To what
other source can we look for the hope
of our nation but to the public schools?
2ow to correct these evils and make
good homes, we must have compulsory
education, and moral and religious
training in our schools.
The bible should be read in the
schools of the United States. If this
is objected to, why not have religious
instruction given In the schools under
the auspices of the different denomina
tions, dividing them Into classes. Al
ready in some of our reformatory
schools, and other public institutions,
separate religious services are held by
the ministers of the various sects.
But if we cannot have religion taught
in our schools yet awhile, we should
have the special teacher in moral phil
osophy who gives this Instruction in
every grade. For is not moral educa
tion conceded to be one of the most
important of all branches of education?
Must we forego the splendid oppor
tunity afforded by the daily schools
for this purpose? There is a body or
moral truth upon which all good men
of whatever sect or opinion are agreed.

It Is the business of the public schools
to deliver to the pupils this common
fund of moral truth. It should be de
livered in a systematic "way, the moral
lessons being graded to suit the vary
ing ages and capacities of the pupils,
and the illustrative material being
sorted and arranged in like manner.
In the primary course much enter
tainment can be given, and much good
accomplished by the use of fairy tales.
Of course, they should be carefully
selected. The chief pedagogic value
thej possess is that they exercise the
imagination in the right way. The
imagination is a most powerful auxil
iary in the development of the mind,
and the will. The familiar anecdote
of Marie Antoinette, who is said to
have asked why the people did not eat
cake, when she was told that they had
no bread, indicates a deficiency of
Imagination. Brought up amid the
splendor of courts, and surrounded by
luxury, she could not put herself in
the place of those who lacked the very
necessities. Much of the selfishness
of this world is. due not to actual hard
heartedness, but to a similar lack of
imaginative power. ,
It is difficult for the happy to realize
the needs of the miserable. Did they
truly realize these needs, they would
be melted to pity, and aroused to help.
The faculty of putting one's self in
the place of others is therefore of great
though indirect service to the cause
of morality, and this faculty may be
cultivated by fairy tales in the hands
of the proper teacher. Fairy tales also
stimulate the Idealizing tendency.
"What were life without ideals? How
could"" hope or even religion germinate
in the human heart were we not able
to' confront the disappointing present
with visions which represent the ful
filment of our desires. "Faith," says
Paul, "is the confidence of things hoped
for, the certainty of things not seen."
Thus faith cannot abide unless support
ed by a vivid idealism.
Fables can also be used to g&od ad
vantage with the young. The peculiar
value of fables is. that they are instan
taneous photographs, "which produce as
it were, in a single flash, some aspect
of human nature, and which, exclud
ing everything else, permits the entire
attention to be fixed on that one. Many
contain deep truths and are calculated
to impress lessons of great moral

guilt and its punishments, the conflict ( charity, respecting the property of oth
of conscience with inclination, are the ers, respecting the mental belief of
leading themes. The Hebrew people
seem to have been endowed with what
may be cadled a moral genius, and es
pecially did they emphasize the filial
and fraternal duties to an extent hard,
ly equaled elsewhere. It is these duties
that must be impressed upon young
children, and hence the biblical stories
public schools, thereby beginning with
present us with the very material we
require. They cannot in this respect
be replaced. There is no literature in
the world that offers what is equal to
them in value, for the particular object
we have in view.
Adam and Eve a Good Story.
Adam and Eve in Paradise Is a won-
I derful story for children. It deserves
to be placed at the head of all others,
for it Inculcates the cardinal virtue of
childhood obedience. It is also a ty
pical story of tne beginning, the pro
gress and culmination of temptation.
In the story of Cain and Abel, the
moral is: Do not harbor evil thoughts
in the mind. If you once give them
entrance, the acts to which they lead
are beyond your control." Cain's sin
consisted in not crushing the feeling of
envy in the beginning in comparing
his own lot with that of his more fa
vored brother, and dwelling on tn
comparison until in a fit of insane pas
sipn he was led on to commit the ter
rible crime of murder.
In the Abraham cycle there are many
'stories which illustrate In turn the vir
tues of brotherly love, generosity to
ward the weak, hospitality toward
strangers, and maternal love. One of
the most charming Idyls of patriarchal
times Is "Rebecca at the Well." i'i
Illustrates positively, as the story of
Sodom does negatively ,tlie duty of -hospitality
toward strangers. "Drink,
Lord, and I will give thy camels drink,"
Ms a pleasant phrase, that is apt to
stick In the memory. Moreover, the
story shows the high place which the
trusted servant occupied In the house
hold of his master, and offers to the
teacher the opportunity to dwell on
the respect due to faithful servants.
The Jacob Cycle.
Next is the Jacob .cycle. "What treat
ment should Jacob receive? He, the sly
trickster, who cheated his brother of
his birthright, and stole a father's
blessing. Yet he is one of the patriarchs
and accorded the honorable title -of
"champion of God." To hold him up
to the admiration of the young is im
possible. To gloss over his faults and
try to explain them away, would be
a sorry business, and honesty forbids.
The bible itself gives us the right clue.
His faults are nowhere disguised. He
is represented as a person who makes
a bad start in life, a very bad start.
Indeed, but who pays the penalty of
his wrongdoing. His is a story of
'In the story of Joseph we have first
the partiality of the father, which pro
duces self conceit In the son. Joseph's
conceit produces envy In the brothers.
This envy reacts on all concerned, on
Joseph, who In consequence is sold into
slavery; on the father, who is plunged
into inconsolable grief, and on the
brothers, -who nearly become murder
ers. The servitude of Joseph destroys
his conceit and develops his noble' na
ture. The sight of the constant afflic
tion of their father on account of the
loss of Joseph melts the hearts of the
brothers. It is this Interweaving of
moral causes and effects which give
to the stories their peculiar value. They
are true moral pictures, and like the
pictures used in ordinary object lessons,
they serve to train the power of ob
servation. In the Moses cycle we can extract a
few points, interesting even to chil
dren, thus making them familiar with
the name of Moses, and preparing the
way for a deeper Interest later on. The
points in the stories in the David cycle
are, skill andgcourage triumphant over
brutal :rength, unselfish friendship,
loyalty, a leader's genorisity toward
his followers, and parental love.
The Xevr Testament.
From the new testament may be se
lected for the primary course the story
of the "Good Samaritan," as illustrative
of true charity. Selected passages from
the sermon on the Mount may also be
explained anu committed to memory.
But if we have religion taught in the
schools, the te"acher of religion will
claim the bible wholly as his own, and
may not be willing to share even a
part of its treasures with the moral
teachr. But if we have no religious
teachers, then by all means let us have
the great moral truths of the bible
taught by the moral teacher.
As we leave the fields of biblical
literature and turn to the classic epic
of Greece, a new scene spreads out be
fore us, new forms and faces crowd
around us, we breath a different at
mosphere. The poems of Homer among
the Greeks occupy a place In many re
spects similar to that of the bible
among the Hebrews. At Athens there
was a special ordinance that the Ho
meric poems should be recited every
fourth year of the great Pan
festival. Xenophon in the Symposium
has one of his guests to say, "My
father, anxious tnat I should become
a good man, made me learn all tne
poems of Homer, and now I could re
peat the whole Iliad and Odyssey by
But we shall not go quite to the
same length as Xenophon. "We should
hardly think it sufficient in order to
make a good man of a boy to place
Homer in his hands, but a knowledge
of the Hpmeric poems, Introduced at
the right time and in the right way,
will contribute to such' a result. Ulysses
is the hero of the Odyssey, Achilles of
the Iliad. Ulysses is preeminently the
type of resourceful - Intelligence.
Achilles of valor.
It is good for children to have ex
amples of physical courage set before
them, provided it be not brutal. Unless
one has the resolute will, the fearless
soul, and can face difficulties and dan
gers without flinching; he will never
be able to do a man's work in the
world. A second prerequisite of suc
cess is presence of mind or resourceful
intelligence. Presence of mind Is the
result of bravery. The mind will act
even In perilous situations if It Is not
paralyzed with fear. It is fear that
causes the thought to stop. If we can
keep off the clog of fear, the mind
will go on revolving and often find a
way of escape, when there seems none.
The Odyssey and Iliad teach on every
page to be brave and clearheaded In
the midst of peril. In the Odyssey we
gain a distinct advance upon the moral
results obtained from the study of the
biblical stories. In the bible it is dis
tinctly the love of parents for their
children which is dwelt upon; in The
Odyssey the devotion of children for
their parents. In the Odyssey, too. the
conjugal relation comes into the fore
ground. In the bible the love of the
husband for the wife is repeatedly
touched upon, but the loce of the wife
for the husband is not equally empha
sized. In the Odyssey the child per
ceives the love which the parents bear
to one another and its affections for
both are fed, and the desire to serve
them is strengthened by the new in
sight. There are many subjects which the
moral teacher can take up in the ad
vanced courses. They can dwell on
the brotherhood of man, justice and
others, respecting the reputation of otn-
ers, and a series of lessons on good
manners may be introduced.
Do the children of our cities, and of
the rural districts, need this training?
Undoubtedly. "Will all obtain it with

Any Woman Can
Have Beaaitiful HaJr
(From French Beauty Monthly.)
"No woman should use water upon
her hair oftener than once in two
months," says M. Fournier, the noted
French scjentisti "Dry powder only
should be used. Moisture causes tbe
hair to lose its color and In time be
"Any woman desiring- abundant, lus
trous hair should use a dry shampoo
every two or three days. Mix four
ounces of powdered orris root with four
ounces of therox. Sprinkle about a
tablespoonful of this mixture upon the
head;theu brush the powder thorough
ly through the hair. This will keep it
light and fluffy, and beautifully lus
trous. You will soon see new hair
starting to grow. Thi3 treatment is
the only thing that I am sure will pro
duce a growth of hair.
"Wliile plain orris root is used as a
dry shampoo by many women, still, no
such results can be obtained as by using
the formula I have given."
