A FINE SCHOOL EXHIBIT,.
The Work of the Childr'en of Helena Open to' Publil lnsiection. Aomething of Wkhloh .the aom munity Sae Reason to Be Proud. Eighteen Hiandred Visitore Testify Their. Appreelation by Visiting the Dis play on the First Day. Any one who struggled through the dense crowd at the Kleinschmidt building, Sixth avenue and Warren streets, last night, and id not come away thoroughly impressed pith the educational advantages of the elena schools, must have been very hard to please. The opening day and night of the school exhibit was what might be called a grand saoces so far as the interest mani e~ted is concerned. Fully 1,800 people vsited the place. The crowd at times was, f anything, too large to permit of more han a superficial examination on the part tf most who attended, as there was hardly room to move around. The exhibit will be pen again to-day from 10 o'clock in the orning until the same hour at night, and very likely part, if not all, of next week. Tlhe attendance on the first night would seem to justify suoh a course. The light last night was hardly sufficient o show off the work to the best advantage, and an effort will be made to-day to ar range for a better illumination. Still it was strong enough last night to show that the school children of Helena can hold their own with those of any 'city in the country. The samples of their work re flected great credit on the children, but mone the less so on the teachers under whose training they have attained such a high degree of excellence. It was due en tirely to these tireless brain workers that those who visited the exhibition last night were able to gain a clear comprehension of the many excellent things shown. In fact the teachers were as proud of the work done by their puoils as the proudest parent of the brightest boy orgirl could be. They spared no pains in explaining the different parts of the exhibit. Two large rooms are taken up by the school exhibit. The space even then is none too great, though it has been utilized to the best advantage. A fine. artistic taste is shown in the arrangement of the display. The work of the different grades have, as far as possible, been accorded the same amount of space. The exhibit of each grade of school work is separate from that of the other grades. " It would be impos sible to say which of the several grades is deserving of the most aporoval. All in their way are far above what the most ex actingcould have expected. From the pri mary grade to the high school the work shows a steady progress in development, and there is something of interest in each. One department which is taught in all grades is writing, and the samples of work shown, even that of the primary pupils, is such that many grown persons who have seen the exhibit wished they could do as well. It must be borne in mind that in the primary grade there is no special instructor in writing, and the beginners in this im portant branch of school work have its first principles instilled into them by the regu lar teachers under whose care they are. In the grades above the primaries there is a sreoial teacher for writing. The primary teachers think they have no cause to blush by the comparison between the writing of fhe little ones and that of those of larger growth. While kin dergarten work is not part of the regular curriculum, there is in the primary grade a very pretty exhibit of it which attracts much attention. One special feature of the primary work is the moulding in clay done by the little children. It takes the form of fruit and articles of domestic use, and other things of an attractive nature. '1 he fruit, being colored to the natural tints, makes a very fine appearance. The weaving card work is another especially attractive feature. In the primary grade, besides writing, there is taught drawing, language and numbers. These branches run through all the grades. The work of the second grade pupils is of course an advance over that of the primary. It shows wonderful development for the slight difference there is in the ages and sizes of the pupils. The drawing particu larly speaks well of the capacity and indus try of the teachers in this grade. Still more defined is the advance shown by the pupils of the third grade in all the branches taught in those below. In this grade geog raphy is added to the course of studies, though it is of the elemientary character that does not give much opportunity for display in the exhibit. The fourth grade carries on the same work as those which precede it, though in geography the pupils begin their map work, whlch is very credit able. One piece of the work in this grade is a sand map of North America, showing the outlines of that portion of the conti nent to perfection. Though primary history is added to the studies of the pupils in the fifth grade, no special feature is made of this branch of the exhibit. The development of the r;egn lar work in this grade shows that the pupils are in competent hands. In the exhinit of this grade are some fine photographio views, the work of onei of the pupils. The sixth grade carries out the work of the fiftih with advanced text books. Some very finue nmap work and pencil drawing is shown in this grarde. Two of the features of the seventh grade are a production map of Montana, showing what eanoh county yields most largely, and a relief map in putty showing the elevations and depressions of the sttate. Some progressive maps are shown here, done with pen and ink and colored with crayon. There are also some jine specimens of drawing. The eighth grade shows, in addition to the regular fea tures, some excellent historical mnaps. and examples of 5en flourishing. In the work of the high school pupils there is displayed written examploe of all the branches pursued there. A geological ma of the United States, botany work, mechanical drawing, charcoal drawings, are among the notable features in this school's exhibit. There are some fine chem ionl and phyrsical apparatus, most of which was made by the boys and gils. It is no ticoable that the girls in the high school rre doing some very nice work in carpeu try, making easels and other pretty things. The girls have also put up a telegraph line in full ope ation. Those things which are not in the regular course of study serve to show the adaptability and intelligence of the pupils in thie Helena schools. In this class, and deoserving of great praise, is the fancy wol k which cormes from the different grades. It includes reedlework, em broidery, wood carving and other pretty and useful thinrgs. lTheb drawing, whiobh is common to all the firades and schools, as something tiat is of itself worth seoing. It has been well dis played on the walls, where it can be seen to ndvantage. The mapr drawin is also dis plnyed I the same way. One feature of the whole exhibit is the neat binding in the writing work. Most of the binding and lettering in it was done by the pupils. Those in charge of the exhibit wish it understood that everybody is invited to come and inspect the work. The use of the building bie been kindly given rent free br Carl KleinRahmidt, the owner.

The same fine is provided for any one destroy ing, defacing or altering any posted regis try list. There will be a lively time in the Seventh ward republican caucus to-night. Lookey's and Kleinschmidt's friends each claimed yesterday that their man would have all the votes from the Seventh in the conven tion Wednesday evening, and to make good their claim will do some tall hustling to day. For the aldermanic nomination A. C. Votaw and E. S. Walker are working hard, with the chances in favor of Walker. Down in the Sixth Angus McDonald has charge of .the Kleinschmidt interests, and he expects to head the delegation to the city convention for the present mayor, and also to carry off the aldermanic nomi nation himself. In the Fifth Alderman Witmer is working for a solid Kleinschmidt delegation and to be his own successor. The Lockey forces, however, are not going to allow him to have a walkover, while ex Alderman Richards and Harrison want to break into the council themselves. In the Fourth the Kleinschmidt strength is less than in any ither save the Seventh, and it is probable Lockey will have a solid delegation. W. C. Orr believes he has the aldermanic nomination just where he wants it, and as he is all things to all men these days, he may be right In his belief. Mayor Kleinschmidt's friends are posi tive they will have one-half, at least, of the Third ward delegation, while Loockey's lieu tenants say their man will have them all. J. S. Featherly will take the aldermanic nomination if it is ;eoessary. In the Sec ond ward the Lookey feeling is said to be very pronounced, while as for the two va cancies in the council there are no particular aspirants. In the First Kleinschmidt will have a solid delegation. Eugene Meyer and Alderman Klein stand about an equal chance for the aldermanic nomination. Sergeant S. N. Nicholson was around yesterday looking up his chances for the nomination for police judge on the republi can ticket. So far the sergeant is m the lead and does not propose to be distanced. He is a hard worker in politics and his friends claim that his long association with police matters will make him a competent ajudge. City Treasurer Walker is doing some hard work, both for himself and against Lookey. Alderman Anthony Harrity of the First ward, is very likely to be the new chairman of the democratic city central committee. If he accepts he will take his place at the head of the fight and stay with it to the finish. The places of holding the republican primaries this evening are as follows: First ward, city hall; Second, Brown's block, Waroren street; Third, Edwards' block, Park avenue; F'ourth, Central school building; Fifth, west side school house; Sixth, hose house; Seventh, Bach, Cory & Co's, Ninth avenue and Idaho streets, Ilds for Book Accousnts.
