Sen- Institutional Methods That
Male for Progress.
•The newer movements in institutional work are
all in the direction of correlating the institution
with the outside world." said Homer Folks in an
address to the School of Philanthropy yesterday
morning. "For instance, supposing a consumptive
is sent 10 a sanatorium and his disease Is ar
rested. If. when he comes out, his case Is not fol
lowed up. and no effort is made to secure suitable
employment for him. hV will go bark to the condi
tions under which the disease developed-to the
Fame work, and perhaps to the same shop. Being
now unaccustomed to labor, he finds the burden
heavier than ever, and the disease develops again.
In the same way the insane, patient goes back to
the conditions that led to the breakdown. Treat
ment of this kind is so worthless that all institu
tions are beginning to develop after-care agencies
and are becoming educational factors In the com
munity instead of places that have no relation to
the outside world.
"An institution is an artificial community, and In
all such communities there is a tendency to crys
tallize into set ways which are sometimes quite
Irrational. In one institution they always treated
the fish which was served on Friday with a po
tato masher before it was sent to the table. This
came to the ears of some one interested in the
Institution, and the superintendent was appealed
to for Information. He didn't know anything about
It, so the inquirer suggested that they go to in
vestigate. The fiEh. which looked very nice, was
just coming from the oven. It was taken to a
table and the mashers were applied. The superin
tendent asked the man who performed the opera
tion why he did it. Did the patients like the fish
that way? The man didn't know. He supposed so.
He had been tcld to mash the fish when he first
came. an*, had done it ever since. Perhaps the
patients wouldn't eat it any other way. Such cus
toms as this become established imperceptibly.
Those who see things every day come to take
them for granted, and it takes a newcomer to
notice their irrationality. All progressive institu
tions are now Trying to break away from such
tendencies and make the life of the institution more
natural, so that the inmate, when he steps back
Into the community, will not find himself in a
etrarice environment.
"In orphan asylums this tendency toward greater
naturalness is leading to the cottage system. Under
natural conditions children are constantly in con
tact with adults and unconsciously learn the ways
of Hi from them. In an institution where there
are five hundred children no Daw of them is within
hailing distance of an adult, for all practical pur
poses. Or. the cottage plan, where a group of
twenty-Jive children is placed in charge of one or
more adults, this evil is partially remedied."
In answer to a question about the <"V»-->rt:e Junior
Republic Mr. Folks said he thought it gave too
much prominence to the political side of life and
to the jail.
"The Ideal community," he said, "is one in which
no one is conscious of the Jail."
"There Is a picturesque bluff in Duburjue. lowa,
■which has been saved from present desecration
end future destruction by "the Woman's Club of
that city," says "Charities." "As the city fathers
could not be prevailed upon to acquire this prop
<-■• and make a public park of it. the women
bought it themselves. They have removed the
billboards which made the bluff hideous, and they
now propose to restore the vine? and ferns that
have b^en torn from the crevices. The summit
of the bluff, which commands the finest view in
the •■.-, wiH't»« laid out as a park.
"Dubuque lias" many of these picturesque rocky
cliffs to which the public has heretofore paid no
attention. Where They ire far enough back from
the street;^ Jrouses are shoved in between, and they
are relegatElTtarSaek yards. When they are on
the street's edge, as at this point on West Sth
street, they tend to become a conspicuous site for
billboards, and their beautiful ferns and creepers
are torn away or hidden. It is hoped" that the
action of the : Woman's Club may lead to a better
■ appreciation of these beauties, which, if they were
restored to their original loveliness, would make
of Dubuque a most picturesque little city."
Th" United States will send about two hundred
and fifty delegates, representing every section of the
country, to the third International Congress for the
Advancement of Drawing and Art Education, which
will be held In Ixmdon from August 3 to August
t, inclusive. Among those whose names are on
the programme are Dr. James P. Haney. director
of art and manual training for the boroughs of
Manhattan and The. Bronx; Arthur W. Dow, di
rector of art at Teachers College, Columbia DM
xersity; Hs!s*y C. Ives. director of the St. Louis
Museum of Fine Arts, and Henry Turner Bailey.
Dr. Haney takes to !>->ndon a conspectus on "Art
Education in the Public Schools of the United
States," a handsome book of 432 pages, with over
a. hundred full-page illustrations of the art work
done by children and also by students !n the
normal art schools. The conspectus will be fur
ther illustrated by a composite exhibition, ar
ranged by grades, of work done in the public
acboola of nearly all the large cities.

At the Royal Botanio Society's Garden? in Re

thorough, practical gardeners. The society's fee*

or two. increasing to 520 to $25 a week afterward.

Health Department Intends to
Prosecute Ministers.
The Health Department intends to plueecuU
clergymen who have failed to report mnrringes
In the first. half of this year. That many have
not obeyed the law which requires that reports
be made was disclosed to the department when
the records were completed, which showed a de
crease from the same period of last year of C>.. r >OO.
and the fact that the license bureau has issued
considerably more than the number reported, al
though the bureau records have not been made
up to date. The failure to report is a misde
meanor, punishable by a fine of $I<»i>.
The eemi-annual report shows a great increase
in births, and a death rate that makes a new
U>w record for so long a period In this city. Dr.
Guilfoy, who makes the semi-annual report,
The six months ending June 30 have been the
healthiest six months since the organization of
the greater city, in ISPS, and in all probability
the healthiest six months the city has ever en
joyed since the Health Department assumed
control of the sanitary conditions of the city.
The number of deaths was M.7SS, a death rate
of 17.4(5 per 1.000. against a total of 40,328
deaths, ■ rate of IS.S2 per 1.000, for the corre
sponding period of last year.
If we compare the death ra-te for the last six
months with that of the decennial average for
the ftrst half of the /year since IS3S we will
find that there has beer, a decrease of 2.26 of a
point In favor of the six months just passed.
If the death rate of the last decennium were
applied to the population of the city to-day it
would mean that during the last six months the
number of deaths would equal 43.356 for the
first half of the year, in lieu of the 38,722 which
actually occurred.
Dr. Guilfoy reports decreases In typhoid fever.
Influenza, pulmonary tuberculosis, whooping
cough, cerebro-ppinal meningitis, acute bronchi
tis, pneumonia and broncho-pneumonia. There
■were considerable increases In measles and
scarlet fever. The report continues:
The number of births reported during the six
months was 63.515. an increase of fi.220 over the
number reported for the corresponding period
of last year. If this increase be maintained
during the remainder of the year there will be
over 130,000 births reported, against 120,000 in
Th"re were IK.MO marriages reported, a de
crease of 6. son from those of last year. This haa
been caused by the fact that, notwithstanding
notices were sent to every clergyman In the city
that the new marriage license law did not absolve
them from compliance with the sections of the.
sanitary code compelling all marriages to b*>
recorded at this department, a great many
clergymen have neglected to send their reports
to this department, and as the index of mar
riages at the City Clerk's office is not in condi
tion to be comparer! with that in the bureau of
records we are unable to ascertain specific
oases of violation of the law. In the fall efforts
will be made to try to compel the clergymen
of the city to report all marriages that they
have performed during the year.
"When the new marriage license law went into
effect," Dr. Guilfoy sai-l yesterday, "we cent
notices to al! the clergymen in the city that they
would still be required to report marriages to
the Health Department. We know that the rec
ords are not complete. We could make ttiem
complete if the work was being done in the
license bureau, but the entering of the marriages
will not be completed for some time. When
ready we ■will make comparisons to discover who
the. delinquent clergymen are. The names will
be n"nt to the prosecutor's office.
"Our birth rate." Dr. Ouilfoy continued, "is
exceptionally good. But not all the births are
reporter]. If we should ' calculate our infant
mortality on the birth rate, as they rlo in Lon
don, we would make a showing as low as in
London, c, better record than Berlin and sur
passed only by Paris."
Continuation of High Temperature

The convention of the International Sunday
School Association, which has just closed in Louis
ville. Is destined, in the opinion of Sunday school
leaders, to be remembered as the one in which the
association placed itself definitely on record as
favoring an advance in Sunday school methods
•which its critics have been saying it would never
accept. Without a dissenting voice in the dis
cussion, the association directed its lesson commit
tee to prepare a complete course of graded lessons
for use in the schools.
It is over this matter that Sunday school forces
have been in lively discussion for years past. A
progressive element demanded graded lessons: a
conservative element deemed the time honored
"uniform" lessons sufficient. The result was that
a number of series of graded lessons began to ap
pear, which were used in some schools, but did not
come into anything like general use because a
large majority of the Sunday schools not only of
America but of the world use the lesson series
prepared by and published under the auspices of
the international association
In several international conventions the matter
has been discussed in one form or another, and
strong opposition to graded lessons has #1 ways ap
peared. At the convention next preceding the one
just held in Louisville, that at Toronto three years
ago. the vote was almost equally divided on the
subject, or at least upon one phase of it. But
leaders who had been most strenuous in their op
position came over to the support of the progres-
Bive element at Louisville, and it is now believed
that the matter is settled for all time.
The Presbyterians are beginning openly to -riti
cise the committee, on administrative agencies of
their General Assembly, not because of what H
does but because of its seeming inaction. The
committee, of which a former moderator of the
assembly, the Rev. Dr. James D. Moffat, is chair
man, has been in existence for three years. 5.r.d
thp last General Assembly continued it for yet
another year. The committee was originally ap
pointed for the purpose of considering the ad
visability of a consolidation of Borne of the mis
sionary boards of the Church.
The committee was never Instructed to consoli
date any of the boards, but simply to consider
whether the administration of benevolent funds
would be more efficient or economical if fewer
organizations were handling the money, fewer
agencies making appeals. On this main question
the committee Is yet to report. The committee was
further instructed to study the. work among the
young people of tho Church. In this matter also
it has made no report. Its sole achievement is the
suggestion for executive commissions adopted by
the Genera! Assembly.
