Talked About Kindergartens.
Pro!ably the most interesting paper read
during the session was the one on kinder
gartens by Frank A. Fitzpitrick.of Omahv
fcnd the remarks of Miss Harrison, of Chi
cago, on the ame subject. Fitzpatrick re
viewed tbestliool laws of the various states
In the Union, and showed that all of them
placed some limitation upon the power of
boards of education and municipalities in
the direction of restricting theexpenditure
of public money to the education of a cer
tain class of children. Thus eleven states
limit the expenditure of public money to
children between the aires of 5 and 01: two
states limit this expenditure to ehil.lr-.-a
between the aes of j aud i.t, and on.
The Proper Age of rapil.
Referring to the question of the proper
age of pupils in kindereartens Fitzpat
rick ?aid: "If children are to be gathered
into a state school at the early aee of 3 and
until they are 4: ; or 3 yers ,"f at-e the type
of school must be after the pattern of the
French maternal or the English infant
schools, which schools are radically dif
ferent from and indeed subversive of the
ideas which l.e at the basis of kindergar
ten training. For, primarily, the end
sonttht in the maternal and infant schools
is the early development in the pupils of
these school-of the power to take care of
themselves: th- tewhini: of Iangua.-e. let
ter and nnml)er that the children may ie
able to acquire knowledge more rapidy
and certainly during the short interval of
time which n.u-t eii.pse before they t'o out

What the Kindergarten Is For.
"The kindergarten on the other hand.
Peeks to keep the child in the ret 1m of de
veloping ideas, and therefore postpones
the teaching of the alphabet and the
practical side of school life until a later
time. In fact, the kindergarten in its de
velopment -ks to provide for the period
of infancy by lengthening the time from
infancy to maturity, while the maternal
and infant schools aeek to shorten that
time. This will mean, briefly stated, that
if the state undertakes the care of chil
dren between the ages of 3 and 6, two dis
tinct types of schools will be necessary in
order to properly provide for and educate
these children." He made a number of
suggestions as to the conduct of these
