WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1895.
WHY Not Buy Your Groceries Of The Waterbury Grocery co? You will find the Largest, Cleanest and Freshest Stock in Waterbury. Because we carry a line stock of Imported and Fancy Groceries it is no sign that we do not carry the staple goods also, and at popular prices. 23 i:ounds of (Jranulated Sugar, Washburn, Crosby & Co's Best Flour, Waterbury Grocery Co's Best, 10 pounds of Rolled Oats, Wo have not bought up all of the peach necticut, but you can find the Best Native city at the jinn 81.00 4.00 4.50 .25 orchards in Con Peaches in this School Begins.

VVe are approaching both these models. hampering in our public school courses is being gradually weeded out, and '.earning that will lie of real, practical rise to the world substituted. Speed the day ! Meantime the pupils ami teachers are the ones who will bring into realization tho beautiful model. Part of the model education will have come when every youngster in this land has polite, gen tle manners and speaks correct Eng lish in a sweet, clear voice. There is one part of grammar that is even more important than the learning of rules, yes, and much more important than knowing how to parse correctly. It, is knowing how to speak correctly in a voice that is as clear as a crystal bell, without a suggestion of crudeness, lark of cultivation, nasality or throat iness in it. Teachers can create this voice in Ilieir pupils and in themselves. The way to learn to speak grammatic ally is for the pupils to watch one an other's language, note down the mis takes made and bring them to be cor rected in the class. Many a merry, in structive lesson can be eternally im pressed on tiie mind in that way. been loud in his expression of a desire to die. lie feels that earth is not his homo, and he. is homesick.

For the sec ml time in cur history Labor day, Sept. , will be celebrated is a national holiday. It is fast be- lining as much of a general holiday a. i'hanksgiving or Washington's birthday. Hon. Amos ,1. Cummiugs of Xt w York city was the man vh i introduced the bill into congress making Sept. 1 a national holiday. Mr. Cuinminas him self began his career as a printer. This was perhaps one reason why he was so interested in a national lab r holiday and by he kept his pet measure per sistently before congress till it was adopted. Like so many of his ora.'t, i ke Horace Greeky himdi', Mr. Cu-.n-mings graduated from his prion r's ease imo journalism. He was a member of the staff of the New York Tribune un der lb race Greeley and afterward was ;ty editor f the New York Sun, till ', sti pped from his high place as a :e -paper man and became a conress e.an.

What the r.mrt h of .Inly is to 11 cl Q (JC11 Americans the -1th of September will in j time become to the French, an occasion j for universal rejoicing, for fetes and T - , r I feasts, for powder and lirecrackeis.

I'.ut ibis time we take the liberty of re minding our rdicr of France ihat if she dins not do the square thing by ox-d n sul Waller of Kansas she will get her self into the hottest of hot water. Wall er is au American citizen. Vie ludu-vo he has been deeply wronged and ci uelly ited, and we shall coin nine to be- eve so until we are positively as-mea to the contrary. The Trench do not own Madagascar, and they do not seem to he making great headway toward getting possession of it. The Hovas certainly owned Madagascar when they leased i'.") square miles of it to the American j citizen. John L. Waller. He had a per ! feet right to his property, and it v as ! none of Trance's business. The Ameri I can government will protect every one ' of its citieus, as Fiance will liad out. It is to be hoped, however, that she will ! do justice to Waller and not lone any I unpleasantness between the world's two ! greatest republics, and that next y. ar, ' on her twenty-sixth anniversary, Amer icans can congrauua'.o her witnoui any reservation at all. ril iried 1 T'h 111 . .An am who dwi' elvsiu, v. to he p.-v the ii groga- i, n TI.m mini of the . ; hankie 1 l.u n shuddi l ed. ti.i.nt." was t!

The common school system ot Japan is in my opinion tho chief sumiort of ; the empire and the promise of the fu j tnre. There are only two grades of schools the ordinary ami tho higher. , Children of both sexes, between tho ages of t! and 10, attend tho former. Children between tho ages of 11 and 14 ; iuv eligible to the higher grade schools. Lvery inu!i;e!p...l!ty, township, village, town anil city is required to build a ! schoolhousc or sciiooiliouses, according ' to the census leturns of children of school age. The bouses are constructed according1 to the capacity and require ments of tho school division. In the cites tho seliool buildings are quite ci r,, mi dious aud preti utious, though all :ae .-temingly overcrowded. In the country many of them arc poor wooden ! structures. It is obligatory for all chil dren bctwci n C and 11 years of age to atti ml a coimcou school until tho confse is tbii.-ho,;. The law is not rigidly en .feived bec iv.-o of tho poverty of tho country uu.l the aasuluto necessity for children to aid their parents by some kind of lab r. But. where children are permutidt i attend seliool there is no t ouble a hi ut tlie attendance. There is no such tl iie, in Jan.m as a schoolboy "ereiuing lil.e a snail unwillingly to seliool."
