Every year a certain propor tion of our children must begin work and leave school at the end of the jrrammar grades. . They leave these jrrades with the elements of arithme tic, geoprraphy, history, English and other languages hardly much more. Thop who are fortunate enough' to finish hiprh school have, of course, one much farther into mathematics and history and the languages, and into the past and present activities of the world what we call cosmogony. But the ioint I am making is that this system of education strikes me as be pinning at the end instead of at the beginning. All these Btudies given our children have been useful enough, ut except for mathematics and Eng lish study, they all constitute a train ing in the finer things of- life rather than for life's practical nHds. Let me hasten to say that I am not 'Jot curtailing in any measure the fralnincr of the Verv humbl&t of OUT children for enjoyment of trae finest things of life. The point is that this training should come at the proper time, and that life can mean nothing to him until he has been taught some means of earning his livelihood. Our colleges themselves yearly release to the world great crowds of eager young people highly trained in the apprecia tion of life's finest things. They lenow the great deeds and the great works of art of the far past They have a deep understanding of natural and economic law. They, have been taught to understand and enjoy life and measure the present against the background of the past. Dut all this is for enjoyment and understanding, it is not a training for actual work. Many a college graduate enters the world wise enough, but actually be wildered and helpless. ' Chance for Youth I would not for anything surrender or curtail the training we should give our children in appreciation of the fine things of life. But long ago it Mtruck me that for the safety of tho country, the ideal system of education Xor the average young man or girl in oar laiiYt consisted of at least a high school training and the acquisition of cme practical trade. , This has been no idle theory of mine. The theory has been in practi cal operation In the home school start ed and maintained by the Loyal Order of Moose, at Mooseheart, not far from Chicago, along the Fox river in Illi nois. Experts have been generous enough to praise this experiment in the highest terms. They have pro nounced it not simply a remarkably successful thing In itself, but a model to . the rest of the country in sound education. The idea of Mooseheart occured to me when I was a worker in the iron mills of Pittsburg. There I saw heads of families die and leave their de pendents totally helpless, the children with little or no education and driven to work without the slightest training. Often they were dispersed so that the brothers grew apart and unknown to each other throughout their lives. ' What Mooseheart It , Mooseheart is not an institution. It ta n a aorfnrinn retrp.nt.

Mothers are there, so that they need not be separated from their children. Babies have- been born there, of ex pectant mothers left without aid by less fortunate members of our order.

At Mooseheart the rod is spared. We find it an effective pun ishment to deprive the misbehaving of the privilege of going swimming, or eeing the baseball and football games, or the movies. For we regularly ex hibit motion pictures in the auditor ium, and we are favored with the lat est and' best. Trades Are Taught Where we do go far beyond the public school is in the vocation?! training that we make compulsory. The utmost skill Is applied in fitting each child to a trade for which na ture and his own tastes have adapted him. The boys learn carpentry, farm ing, moulding, machine work, metal work and work in concrete, and the like. The girls are taught housework, stenography, secretarial work, and kindred pursuits. They know dress making and domestic science. Wheth er as wives, as wage-earners, or as destined for a career, girls who leave Mooseheart are equipped for master ing life, for understanding life, and enjoying it. So are the boys. But the point of this, the everlast ing point of it. is that - while these young people leave Mooseheart to take up life, and while they are trained to make the most of life and its fine things, to the playing of music and the painting of pictures where they can, they all leave with some useful trade. Whatever happens to them in after life, they, will be found on the rock or sell-support and se f preservation. Their self-respect is as secure as tneir livelihood. Mian Anna Vi ..!!. j ...
