Mlsa McHugh .left Omaha on Bcptember
U, sailing from New York and landing In
Glasgow, Scotland, on September 24. She
left on her return trip on November 7,
landing In New Tork November Is. The
tast three weeka she spent In visiting sev
eral eastern colleges where Omaha young
people are pursuing their studies, and also
spent a few days at her old home In
Heart Broke la Irelaad.
Abroad, Miss McHugh visited schools and
colleges In Scotland, England and Ireland,
not touching Wales. The Irish schools
were tha last visited, and she says that
her "heart waa broken In Ireland" ou ac
count of the poor school system, though
In tho other countries the system la better.
Tha teacher says the Irish schools are
poor and aha doubts if a child graduating
from tha elementary gradea can read a
newspaper. The . publle schools on tha
Island are for children up to the ago of 12
only. Higher education is secured In de
nominational private schools , and every
little bamlet has three or four schools of
this character Catholic, Presbyterian,
Episcopal or Methodist.
"The community Is not large enough to
support them all and the result Is that all
are bad," she said.
"The religious question largely dominates
education In Ireland and England as well,
though this Is not the case In Scotland,"
says Miss McHugh. "One-half the children
In England are educated In private schools.
The rugged Scotch are more democratic.
Though in Ireland they have a wonderful
technical school at Glasgow, but I do not
see how the children ever get Into It for the
reason of the, great gap between It and the
low elementary acbools of a few grades. .
"Tradition and old customs also control
the schools In England and Scotland.' What
the great grandfather has not done, Is
not Alone today.
"One thing In the British schools that I
think Is good is the method of grading.
Here In America we work for the average
child and so expend our energies on the
lower strata. There the brit,4it child Is
allowed to forge ahead. It is a question
whether the alow or average child should
only, get his share of energy and whether
we ought to keep the bright child back
while waiting for the slower."
Landing In America again, Miss McHugh
first visited Columbia uulversity - where
she-saw. Hal Beans, a member of her
first graduating class in 1SK5,- who Is now
a member of tho faculty of that school.
At Vassar college she saw Caroline Cong
don and Ruth Harding, graduates of the
Omaha High, and at Smith college she
saw five more graduates of the Omaha
school: Dorothy Leavy,' Helen Wright.
Welcome Ayer, Elisabeth Bweet and Myra
BreckenrMge. She then went to Amherst,
where John McCague, Carroll Belden. Pren
tiss Lord, Reed Peters and Frank Selby, all
graduates of the Omaha school, are at
tending college. Frank Selby has made
the best record In the freshman class at
Amherst, At Wellesley she found eight
Omaha girls: "Margaret Whitney, Beulah
Buckley and Mary Schermerhorn, seniors;
Gertrude Bhermerhorn, Margaret Kennedy
and Nanette Aiken, sophinores, and Nellie
Carpenter and Corrinne Bearle. Ridley
Haines, Will Williams and Fay Felker
were seen at Harvard and Mac. Harding
Mlsa McHugh also went to Worcheater,
Mass., and visited for a day with Homer
G. Lewis, formerly principal of the
Omaha High. Mr. Lewis went to Worches
ter as principal, but is now superintendent
of the city schools and Is as well liked
there Is he was here, said the teacher.

BIG WATER MAIN BURSTS
Joint Blows Oat at Twenty-Fourth

A Joint blowout on tho blg'thlity-s x-lneh
water main between Omaha and Klorei.ce
about noon Friday threatened to slut olt
thut section of Omaha from water for a
considerable time and aUo to shut off
traffic on the Twenty-fourth street lino.
The break happened at Twenty-fourth and
Maple streets ami is on the main Une ol
the wat 'r company between fHr.hii nd
tho pumping- station at Florenco. Kt soon
as possible the main was shut off at Twenty-fourth
and Ames avenue and a large
force of men put to work to repair as soon
es possible. Tin brings to notice tha condi
tion which has existed for years of on

The Longest Sentence.
The prire for the longest sentence ever
written may fairly be awarded to the elder
Dumas, who probubly holds a further
record for fertility of production. In the
seventh of the twenty-nine volumes which
compos the "impressions du Voyaite,"
there is a sentence di-srrlblng bunvenuto
Cellini, which fills three pugea, or I'M
lines, averting forty-f ve letters apiece.
The sentence is broken by sixty-eight c. mi
mas and sixty semicolons; but as It con
tains lUi verbs and proper names, tue
reader Is somewhat bewildered before the
end is reached London Chronicle.
