WliUe there ban honest diversity of opinion
M to the beuellts of industrial training in
schools, it must be conceded that the labor
market can never 1 hnrnied by thoroughly
killed workmen. The apprenticeship system
Is almost a tiling of tlia post. Boys do not
learn trades, but lenrn brauchus, and even
their limited knowledge of these branches
they are compelled U pick up themselves.
There are too many "Saw and hatchet" men,
too many "shoemakers" and "blacksmiths."
If the industrial schonlnwill turn out printers
who cau print, and machinist instead of
machine tenders, if they will give us budders
who can build a hnn from foundation to
tnrret, and deal Hkewiwj with other trades,
they will be doin something which is not
taught the modern apprentice, and to that
extent will be a blessing.
INSIDE THE COLLEGE WORKSHOP.
In the public schools of this city manual
training is now stieeessfnUy carried on, while
at the Oramercy Turk Tool bouse, Work
ingmon's school. Now York Trade school and
the Hebrew Techni-id institute, full fledged
mechanics are turned out. The object of in
troducing this system into the public schools
and colleens, however, is not to teach trades,
but to train the faculties of observation and
naoual accomplishment. For it is claimed
ihat by this system a child need only com
mence to learn to read when 7 or 8 years of
uge, and that owinx to this training be will
pass by one who nifty have learned reading
several years earlier, but who never had a
As a visitor enters the College of the City
of Now York bo is surprised, for be hears the
music of the anvil, the hum of the lathe, the
grunt of the Ik-Hows, and the hiss of the saw.
Here manual and technical training is firmly
established, and the education of the hand
keeps pace with the development of the brain.
The workshop is by no means an amateur
one. It contains an engine, 6 forges, IS
vises, 1.1 anvils, SO wood lathes, 4 engine
lathes and 15 carpenters' tables, with a com
plete outfit of tools. .
There are in this course of the college 230
boys, all of whom are enlisted for three
years. The boys ranse iu age from 14 to 20,
and work iu groups of fifty. They wear
striped aprons and manifest such an intent
interest In their frisks as to impress the visi
tor at a glance with the wisdom of those who
established the shop.
. To the left, ns one enters, is the carpenter
shop, in which tho first year boys are in
structed; to the right are seen the embryo
blacksmiths of thehecond year, while immedi

some of which they have themselves fashioned

smithy are aglow with ruddy light. The

. After a general survey of the place, the re
. porter sought out Mr. Ilarvey Mitchell, the
director of tho workshop, who is u graduate
or elevens institute.
"We are not try ins to make artisans or
mechanics here," said Mr. Mitchell. "We aim
imply to give a practical idea of the value
or teaching the hands as well as the brain.
Borne of our boys, indeed nearly half of them,
come in voluntarily. They are pursuing one
of the college courses in which this work is
not required, yet of their own choice they
take upon themselves the additional work of
this department. There are in the shop 120
of these voluntary workers, and 130 of those
who are taking the regular mechanical course
in the college, and heuce are obliged to come
into the shop. The boys seem to like it, and
their work here is certaiidy of assistance to
them in many of their studies, which aim
simply to develop mind power. The method
we have adopted here is the kindergarten
method of Frobel, the main object of whioh
is to train the faculties of observation by
means of object lessons. The object system
being established as a foundation for educa
tional training, tho extension of the same
system to higher courses seems but logical.
THS BOYS AT WORK.
"The first thing we do with the boys is to
put them at plain carpentering. They are
taught the use of all ordinary tools em
ployed in plain work, and at the same time
construct many little things, of which we
have several cases filled with specimens. In
the second year the boys learn smelting, vise
work and soldering, while in the third year
we give them instructions in metal and wood
turning and in tho use of the engine lathe.
Our plan has proved a success, I think. The
hop, although not established for the pur
pose of teaching trades, has already turned
out several skillful mechanics. Five of our
graduates are teaching this system in the
public schools. Our classes are increasing
annually, and quite frequently we receive re
quests from other schools to send them some
or our graduates who are capable of giving
elementary industrial instruction. How, look
bout yon and you can determine for your
elf the character of our work."
The reporter wandered from bench to
bench where the young curpenters, some of
them so small that their big saws and pieces
of timber seemed almost more than they
could handle, were engaged in making vari
ous joints from drawings which were accom
panied with written instructions. The mak
ing of tho different joints, such as mortise,
tenon and dove tail, is one of the features of
the carpenter shop, and in this connection the
subject of sharp tools is not lost sight of.
The students receive special instructions in
- sharpening their saws, planes, irons, etc.
Each boy is furnished with a locker in which
he keeps bis tools, and for which he is re
sponsible. The tool drawers are kept in a re
markably neut condition, and the care with
which the benches w ere cleaned, when the
time to quit work arrived, would have car
ried joy to the heart of the most fastidious
In the blacksmith shop the speed and en
gine lathes, which are used for metal turning,
are constantly in use. The treatment of
iron begins with forging, the general princi
ples of whWi are given by the instructor with
blackboard illustrations. The students, alter
donning their aprons,, light up their own
fires, and in groups work at their assigned
tasks. The mode of instructing the boys In
the metal department is similar to that in the
wood working department The instructor
begins by drawing diagrams of the work on
blackboard, and then explains to the boys
the why and the wherefore. The lesson ex
tend through various styles of welding and
include the fundamental principles of work,

The fact develops at Eau Claire that
the abandonment of Beef Slough, near
the mouth of the Chippewa, used fot fif
teen or twenty years past for the recep
tion of logs from the Chippewa district,
destined for Mississippi river mills, is one
of those streaks of commercial strategy
such as have made Frederick Weyer-
bauser, tbe Rock Island lumber kins;.
famous the world over. It is a change of
base by which he dcxtrously checkmates
the Knapp-Stout company, of Menomo
nie and St. Louis and other powerful ad
vursaries among the big lumber corpora'
tions in ibis section which have been
making war on him at Btef Slough.

will henceforth handle the hundreds of
millions of logs which annually go down
the Chippewa, for tbe Mississippi pre
scribes no limitations as to charge. Mr.
Weyerbauser will take care of Mr. Wey
erhauscr's logs and tbe lumber compa
nies interested in the safety of their logs
can pay Mr. Weyerhauaer's charges or
let their logs go to the Gulf of Mexico,
whichever they please. He continues to
own every foot of Beef Slough and all
the improvements thereon. In a word,
he has stepped from Wisconsin into Min
nesota and one of his feet is firmly placed
on each side.
The Deadly Greenback.
One of the sources of disease which
the board of health totally ignored is
thus told by Current Literature: "The
last item of news from the laboratory is
that the deadliest of bacteria live and
multiply on the bank notes that we
handle. Probably there is not a viler
article that we ever touch than a bunk
note. Carried in the pockets of tbe
most leprous and loathsome it passes
through the pocket of tbe refined."
Tet there are quite a few people in
Rock Island whom the Abocs could very
readily pat its finger on, who will un
flinchingly run all risks, for the sake of
handling all the greenbacks they could
get their hands on.

It is slow work building this immense

see tbe shore piers rising one day and a
span creeping out over tbe river the next,
and this work is going on right along,
That is to say, every day is seeing the
money subscribed which stands tor these
parts of the bridge, and owing to certain
causes, Muscatine's blood is fired and she
has resolved that enough money shall be
raised to carry the enterprise through to

A Boon for the Fly.
Kattral gas has artificially prolonged tbe
existence of the fly. In the days of old.
when i ights were cold, there being no gas
fires, t.ie last By of summer smoothed down
his litt e coat tails, rolled up his trunk and
fell over on bis back after the first few frosts.
Now ti e fly, like the man who wants a small
loan, it always with us. He basks in contin
ual wamth all whiter, but there are precious
few oi him. The average happy home,
where bills come as regularly as the new
moon, will have trouble in scaring up more
than three live flies on Valentine's Day.
Wnethir tbe February fly lasts until the
young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts
of spring suits, is a question for scientists to
tackle. We simply want to go on record as
saying &ut where natural gas prevails and
no tab is kept on the consumption it is pos
sible by the expenditure of from $13 to 50
to preei rve the life of a fly all winter and
keep tbs household warm at the same time.
When 've can see a fly twiddling his hind
legs and rubbing his ears on Feb. 28 we are
convinied that be will live in a great and

ary last did not appear to claim bis money.
He then put in an appearance, and producing
a receipt, the writing upon which had become

ten characters had become defaced by being
carried for many years in a belt around his
waist. He explained that he had not put in

in mining pursuits in California and bod been
in comf trtable circumstances.

A Life Hade Miserable
By dyspepsia is scarcely worth the liv
ing. A capricious appetite, heartburn,
puzzling nervous symptoms, increased
action of the heart after eating, sinking
in tbe abdomen between meals, and
flatulence after, are among the scccessive
indicia of this harrassing complaint. Two
things only are needful for its removal.
A resort tt Hostetter's Stomach Bitters,
and persistence in its use. These reme
dial measures being adopted, a cure is
certain. Taken immediately before or
after meals, this great stomachic pro
motes secretion of the gastric juice, tbe
natural solvent of the food. The nervous
and bilious symptoms consequent upon
chronic indigestion disappear, as the
complaint gradually yields to the cor
rective and invigorating influence of tbe
Bitters. Appetite returns, sleep becomes
more refreshing, and as a consequence,
the body h efficiently nourished, muscu
lar power increases, and the mind grows
sanguine. Use the Bitters for chills and
fever, and rheumatism.

Everybody needs and should take a eood
spring medicine, for two reasons :
1st, The body is now more susceptible tc
benefit from medicine than at any other season.
2d, The Impurities which have accumulated
in the blood should be expelled, and the sys
tem given tone and strength, before the pros
trating effects of warm weather are felt.
Hood's Sarsaparilla is the best spring medi
cine. A single trial will convince you of its
superiority. Take it before it ts too lale
The Vest Spring Medicine
"I take Hood's Sarsaparilla for a spring
medicine, and I find it Just the thing. It tones
up my system and makes me feel like a differ
ent man. My wife takes it for dyspepsia, aud
she derives great benefit from it. She says it
is Hie best medicine she ever took." F. C.
Turner, Hook & Ladder No. 1, Boston, Mass.
"Lat spring I was troubled with boils,
caused by my blood being out of order. Two
bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla cured me. I
can recommend it to all troubled w ith affec
tions of the blood." J. Schoch, Teoria, 11L
