The Work of the Childr'en of
Helena Open to' Publil
Aomething of Wkhloh .the aom

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

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
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.

head of the fight and stay with it to the
