TIIE VICES OF PRIMARY EDK'ATIOX. Emerson has said (we do not remember where or how, but somewhere and some how) that there are only two dangerous tilings in the world—self-conceit, and the laziness that comes from self-conceit. This is true of nations and eras as of individ uals. Xo nation knows its own back wardness; no age can understand its own barbarism. We keep talking of the dark ages, and forget that our age is the dark age of those that are yet to conn?, that this is the yesterday of a better and brighter to-morrow. In nothing are we more self-conceited in this land oi ours than in educational matters. “Beginning at Jerusalem,” from Massachusetts, from Boston, outward we believe ourselves to have reached the acme of all progress in this regard. It is now time for us to stop auu rest and boast. The past few weeks have been full of educational conventions of all -orts and under all names. There have been the usual amount of self-complacent comparison of methods and discussion of plans, the usual number of object-lessons and lectures. But there has been some thing unusual. There has been an indiea-j tiori of dissatisfaction with the present state of things. A very slight indication of a very slight dissatisfaction on the part of a very lew people, perhaps; and yet1 there has been a gentle undertone of con viction that the present is not the milleti ium of educational method, it came out i last week in the convention at Cleveland, in the paper of Miss Delia Lathrop, of Cin cinnati; it came out in recent conven tions at Chicago and at Madison, which! were at the pains to bring Elizabeth Pea body all the way from Cambridge to ex pound the Kindergarten methods. It is time for us to understand that our American Primary education is radically wrong. It is time for us to understand that it cannot be made right by any sys tem of patching or mending. Object teaching is a move in the right direction ; the Word method is partly right, and is a groping after the true way. But the sys tem is wrong in its lir.-t principles. We are utterly, almost hopelessly, superficial iu our view ol the scope ot primary euuoa- | tion. We are great believers in “the ! three It's.” In our primary education we proceed upon the principle that reading, j writing, and arithmetic are the "essen tials” of education. The teacher who by hook or crook, by coax or drive, soonest! gets the child through the sloughs between 1 alphabet and reading carries oil'the palm, j There is no thought of mental develop ment; no fear of the evil effects of this forcing. We do not ask whether learn ing to read is the best preliminary drill to the child's faculties. In fact, if we must speak frankly, the great vice 'of our pri mary education is its empiricism. The necessities of teaching oblige them to bow ! to popular demand. What people want is speed in the direction of the “three R's.” It is what they caq measure. Men tal discipline is lo them a shadowy noth ing; they measure education as they do calico, by quantity. In yielding to sup ply the demand, the profession of teach ing is reduced to resort to quackery, and the real need of the child is left unsatis fied. Our educational improvements of late years have been in the direction of a com promise, by which it is hoped the popular craving for apparent quantity may still be supplied and something approaching a true method be obtained, notwithstanding. And so little four-year-old boys and girls are taught by objective methods and drilled in alphabet cards at the same time. But no true system can be reached in this way. Of all teaching, the primary should be the most carefully conformed to scien tific methods. And scientific methods will not be attained until we have a school of fearless reformers, who will teach truly, if they have lo endure martyrdom for it. We base to go to the conscientious and patient Germans, from whom wo have learned so much, to learn also tlm natural method ot education tor little children. It was not discovered at haphazard. "The educating family,” as they were called, under the lead of Frederick Froebel, traveled through toil, persecution, ill repute, and pecuniary sacrifices, which seem almost incredible in our mercenary country, to an educational success. And, when they had attained it. they fearlessly threw away their popularity by introduc ingotlierand greater advances. Xot untiL great, patient, persevering, Frederick Froebel was nearly threescore years of age did he bring forth his best fruit in the Kindergarten, on which he cast behind him all previous achievements, and, de voting himself afresh to poverty, gave the remainder of his life to the introduction of thu greatest of all educational reforms —the establishment of the true method of traininsr little children. The Kindergarten has been introduced into this country : and, ot course has been compromised. American parents cannot i see any good in a child’s spending the ; years from three to six or seven without learning to read. Jt is useless to show the wonderful and delightful development of the faculties of observation and reflection that has taken place in that time; the dis cipline of the child’s moral nature; the laying of a foundation that renders the after success of the child in getting an education almost certain. The shaping of the child’s nature; the expansion of the mind; the teaching a child to think, to talk, ; to love, to be honorable ; the acquisition I of knowledge, and of the habit of seek ing knowledge—all of these go for noth ing with half-educated parents. And, as teachers must make money, schools are started as Kindergartens, and patronized as Kindergartens, that are not even imita tions of Froebel’s admirable institutions. All the schools of this sort in New York and Brooklyn, so far as we know, are un worthy of tiie name. We do not say that they are not improvements on the old method. But we do say that none of them with which we are acquainted are taught * by persons having any considerable knowl edge of Froebel’s method. Some of them | are superficial and worthless. Our leading educators generally confess to a great ignorance of Kindergarten Methods, but a very favorable prejudice in their favor. None of the normal schools can spare time to look into the sub iect, though a little bit of the merely me Imnieal art of Kindergarten work has >een taught at Oswego. But little ehil irert are yet painfully driven in droves ilong the dry and weary road that leads >y the shortest cut to the three It's. There s a good training school for Kindergarten teachers in Boston, and there are a few borough Kindergartens, conscientiously conducted, in different parts of the eoun :rv. Though the progress may be slow, ’lie revolution in the education of little ■liildren is inevitable. But those who nn lertake a reformation in education need not a whit less courage, patience, and self-sacrifice than those who are reformers in religion. The Hon. John A. Haiderman, Mayor of Leavenworth, was lately summoned before a police justice for permitting a nuisance to exist in a street in that town. On being called upon to plead, the Mayor then ex pressed himself —“Really, sir, I presume the matter is a joke. The fact of my be ing called here appears to me too absurd— too absurd.” “Sir,” responded the magis trate, “if tliis appears as a joke, I shall culminate it by inflicting a tine of ten dol lars; just by the way of a joke, sir,—-just by way of a joke.” Prairie Weed Balsam!

DRY EARTH SYSTEM I For the Sewage of Towns, Factories, Hospitals, Prisons, Hotels and Private Houses. \MPLK experience ha® shown the Dry Earth System to be more efficient in preventing foul smells, anti far less costly in construction and re pairs than the Water Closet System; ami that it is m all respects entirely satisfactory, whether lor the Sick Room or for constant use. The Earth Closet offers to all. in town and coun try, every benefit possessed by the Water Closet, at far less cost, with the additional advantages, that it is portable, and can be moved to the bedside in the sickroom. It promises more in immunity from offensive Mors, from infection in disease, and in the saving of fertilizers than has ever been accomplished by a single invention. In the COMMODE, the apparatus and earth res ervoir are self-contained, ami a movable pail takes the place of the vault For use in Red Rooms, Hospital Wards, Infirm aries, Ac., the Commode is invaluable. It is entire ly free from those faint, depressing odors, common to portable tenter closets and night stools, and through its admission one of the greatest miseries of human life, the foul smells of the sick room, and one ot the most frequent means of communicating infection, may be entirely prevented.
