President Eliot, of Harvard Uni
versity, in a speech last Friday
made an attack on the present pub
ic school system.
He virtually read an indictment
against the public school system.
He found radical fault with the
work of the public schools of
America, and claimed that the pub
lic schools have not kept pace with
social development during the last
fifty years, aod that such industrial
wars as are on now are an evidence
that the common schools have not
done their work as they should.
In fine, Dr. Eliot said : "That
the results of American education
have hitherto fallen far short of the
hopes and expectations of its found
ers." and that the American people
cannot afford to persist in the pres
ent low school expenditure per

to the condition and ages of two car
riage horses. This was a Centralia

ays trial in the Circuit court at
this term, and the examination of
