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.

Labor Day.
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. Attempts of course are made every

I The French republic has la-ted a
piarter of a century tho 4th of this Sep
.Lviva lipov len.ber. 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. We
Poultry aild V egetablCS . of this land extend our heartiest Ko-.a
wishes, as we d every -It li ot .--epti ::
bcr, to our sister republic of France.
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.

Corducatlon a Fratnre of the System AH
Slust Atteml Seliool Tp to the Age of
Fourteen The Subject Tauebt Teach,
era Onulilleatious.
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." Th"V go trotting to school
with happy f n . s. Tin-y all wear a black
oe vhite cap with a leaiher visor, and
they carry their bocks in a leather
sa'ch-d. "i i.e majority of them aro sfru

ball beaiiug idea cannot bo extended
to these as well as to carriage wheals.
Next perhaps the balls themselves will
be fewer in number. It may be found
that the friction of wheels will be still
more lessened by touching fewer points
or balls, at the same time that the
power and steadiness of the revolutions
will bo fully maintained.
