It is made up of commonplace things1
its'of stone, slabs of wood in naturaE

fruits, 'vegetables, photographs of
:enery and buildings. All these go

LA FAYETTE MEMORIAL COMMISSION.
For the Erection of a Monument to tho
Memory of La Fayette by the Youth of
the United States.
The following .- letter together with
a propectus of a plan to erect a monu
ment to the memory of La Fayette,
which we publish for the information
of school teachers and their pupils:
Chicago, Sept. 27, 1898.
Mr. W. D. Donelass, Winnsboro, S. C.
Dear Sir:-Your acareful considera
tion of the accompanying orospectus
is earnestly requested. It will be
observed that it is proposed by the
Commissioner General for the United
States to'the Paris Exposition to make
especially conspicuous and resplendent,
the celebration of United States Day;
at the coming Exposition. The great:
feature of these exercises is to be the,
unveiling and dedication of a monu
ment from the children and y outh of.
our country to the memory of our
nation's first benefactor and, defender,
La Fayette. The proposition to raise
the funds necessary for the erection of;
the monument through the agency of
the schools, has for one of its chief
purposes, the direction of the minds
of or young people to a broader study
of the historic events of the early days
of the Republic.
-We are requesting the Superinten
dent of your schools to take this mat
ter up and aid us in such manner as
he may think best. To you, however,
as an influential factor in your com
munity, we address this special re
quest for co-operation, not alone as a
publisher but as a citizen. We hope
yo may, where consistent, join
personally wi'h your superintendent
of schools and mayor, perhaps, in the
formation of a committee, which will
be recognized by this commission as
oficial to further the success of this
significant and opportune. movement.
Thanking you in advance for your

The Commission has decided upon
Otober 10th, the anniversary of the
surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown,
as the day which the schools of the
United States arc asked to recogniza
a "La Fayette Day." (Official pub

hoped, by concerted effort ample
fands will be secured to build the
monuent on a scale commnensrerate
with the occasion.
In the univcreities and clege3 of.
