One of the legislators at Springfield
proposes to have the elements of ag

schools of the state. A bill is drawn
to go into effect July 1, 1!01. Such
suitable studies shall be prepared un
der the supervision of the dean of the
college of agriculture, the professor

the state entomologist and the state
superintendent of public instruction
and it is part of the duties of these
oflicials to prepare such studies. On
and after July 1. 1101, no teacher
shall le employed to teach in an un
graded school who has not passed
satisfactory examination on the sub
ject and the modes of teaching it
shall le the duty of the county super
intendent of schools to enforce the
provisions of the act.
Amonu the passengers on the mili
tarv transport Sherman, which left
for Manila via the Mediterranean sea
and Suez canal last week, were the
following sons of their fathers
"princes of the roval line:' Adelbert
Hay, son of the secretary of state
Eugene Hale, Jr., son of the senator
from Maine; John M. Dalell, son of
the representative from Pittsburg, and
James W. Wadsworth, Jr.. son of the
representative from New York. These
young representatives of our new
"empire" are on their way to inspect
the "new possessions" 01 the empire
and will make a tour of the world at
the expense of the taxpayers. In
order to tecure passage on the trans
port, they were booked as clerks to
one of the quartermasters without
compensation. The Springfield Regis
ter may well ask: "On what meat do
these 'our C.-esars feed that thev have
grown so great?'

than fulfills the promise of the llrst
issue. It is literally crowded with
interesting matter which is calculated
to instruct, inspire and uplift all its

tors are Louise Chandler Moulton,

The current mirelxT of the Forum
completes the L'Oth volume: ami it
may with propriety be said that the
magazine, with increasing years,
shows no signs of decadence, but. on
the contrary, preserves its virility
unimpaired. In the February issue
there are two articles of especial im
portance at the present time. One is
bv Commander H. B. Bradford on
Coaling Stations for the Navy. This
otlicer, as is well known, has seen
much active service, and in bringing
the necessity of coaling stations be
fore the public his effort has been, he
says, to deal with facts. The other
paper is by Hoa. Iavid J. Hill, as
sistant secretary of state, and is en
titled The War and the Extension of
Civilization. Mr. Hill approaches his
subject from a new standpoint, and
claims that the terms "imperialism"
and "expansion" do not meet the
case. A more fitting phrase, he con
siders, to designate the aims and
achievements of the. nation is "the
extension of civilization"; for it ex
presses the motive and controlHng
principle of the war ami of "the
treaty by which it is' to be con
cluded. Hon. Charles Denby con
tributes to the same number some
further arguments Why the Treaty
Should be Katihed.
In the Engineering , Magazine for
February Commodore Melville sets
down his Headings from Experience
in Naval Engineering. As engineer-
in-ehief of the United States navv. he
is fresh from studying the work of
modern war vessels in action an ex-
oerience never afforded here
tofore to the naval authorities of any
civilized country. Lessons drawn
from such an opportunity bv such an
authority are full of weight and inter
est. Commodore iUeivme paper is
to be continued in March. Of prime
importance, too, especially at this
time, is W. Henry Huntev's'review of
the Panama canal. The tine pictures
aid in showing a state of progress far
in advance of that generally imagined,
Suggestions of industrial opportu
nity in newly opening countries are
carried in Mr. Cox's account of the
Mineral Resources of Cuba and in the
review, by Senor Lluveras, of Porto
Rico, and its needs of electric tram
ways. Both are handsomely illus
trated. So also is Mr. Parson's dis
cussion of The Tall Building Under
the Test of Fire. Machine-tool
makers will find absorbing interest in
Mr. Orcutt's contrast of European and
American practice, in Mr. Norris' pa
per on cost keeping, and in Mr. Ma
gee's presentation of German export
methods. The Review and Index in
clude the whole range of theengineer

Mrs. Margaret Deland's Old Ches
ter Tales, which were such a delight
ful feature of Harper's Magazine dur
ing liSUS, have gone into their third
edition, although it has been hardly a
month since they were issued in book
form. Perhaps the chief reason for
the universal favor with which they
have been received is that they deal
with a life which is familiar and dear
to almost every American at least,
to those of the older generation. It
is the quaint, old-fashioned life of a
little Pennsylvania town, somewhere
near the Maryland line, which, it is
said, was Mrs. Deland's childhood
home. Perhaps that is why the whole
book is glowing with lite: it is strong
and virile; it makes one laugh and
crv almost iu the same breath. It is
art of the greatest kind, and Mrs. De-
land has proved that as a writer of
short stories she is unsurpassed by
any living American. With its beau
tiful and sympathetic illustrations by
Howard Pvle, Old Chester Tales is a
volume which every lover of good art
