In artlolea published In Tub Sim from Umtto time during the past Mx woaks th.re hu bean nn effort to show that the school yUm o( Nw York city Is not only lnad.nuato 4P to the needs of eo grout a community ond In f ierlor to if hat should naturally be ezpeoted In A city ot such croat wealth, but that it Is radically bod In Us theories ol Instruction and Its sanitary accomodations. Guarsos ol this nature were not made loosely. Not a word naa said until alter over a month ot patient investigation irom school to sohool had boon made, and within the put few weeks thero i have been several proofs brought to boar to substantiate the assertions of tuo first articles. It eannot bo said too often or too em phatically that tho people who are Inter ested In furnishing to New York a sohool systotn that shall comport with the dlcnlty and com manding position ot the city should pay per sonal visits to tho schools, not on exhibition days, but during the regular working hours. Mo intelligent, eandld person oould come away from suoh a visit without, first, a deep convic tion that the system is radically wrong and tho accommodations wretchsd beyond descrip tion: and second, without feeling that every thing should be done that can bo dono to rem edy matters. In this artlclo will bo found a detailed aocount of the sohools In tho Twenty second ward, whoro the population Is of a very diverse charooter. In some portions ot the ward the people live ontlrely In typical tono ment houses, and in othor portions there ore no buildings but those devoted to private fami lies. In this ward, as will be soon from the reports that follow, are to bo found all tho evil features that have been complained of and set forth in the accounts of schools lying in other quarters of the town. The Twenty-second word la comparatively regular in shape Its oastern boundary is Blzth avenue, from Fortieth street to the I'ork, and then tho line of the Park is tollowod along fifty-ninth street and Eighth avenue to Eighty seventy streot. Eighty-seventh and Fortieth streets mark tho northern and southern boun daries rospeotivoly, and the western limit is the Hudson Elvor. In It are eight primary de partments ot grammar schools and ono lndi- . Yldaal primary school. ' Grammar School No. 17 is at 317 West Forty- seventh street. Tho prinoloal of the primary department is Mrs. Mary E. McCloskey. She baa charge of twenty-two classes, for the ac commodation of which nlnoteon class rooms are at her disposal Throe closres, therefore, have to bo accommodated every day In tho general assembly room, and they aro separated from each other by the conventional green cur tain. This building. If devotod to a normal number of scholars, might boratod high among the sohool structures of this city. Tho sani tary arrangements aro all of a modern stylo, and such apparatus as Is in use Is found effective. This means that a reason able degree of vontllntlon Is secured, and that no offensive odors aro perceptible from the closets. Nevertheless, the ovororowd Ing of the rooms makes the atmosphere, after an hour's use ezcoodlngly bad for both pupils and teachers. In some of the rooms there Is occasional neod ol gaslight, but on the wholo the studios are pursued by natural light. The furniture Is of tho old-fashioned kind, and con sists of undivided benches. Thoy are an tm Srovement over somo of the bonches found in le down-town schools, inasmuch as there Is a rack at the back of each bench which serves as a kind of embryonic desk. The play grounds, strango to say, aro open to the air.

Whoa u child comes to school after a breakfast of a cup of ten and a crust ol broad, poor sanitation may do It much harm, but no amount ol improved up paratus can do It much good." At No. 523 West Forty-fourth street Is Gram mar School No. 51. Miss Margaret Walsh is firlnclpal of tha primary department. She has wenty-oneclassrsnnd eighteen rooms, and Is, therefore, compelled to nut three classes sb usual in the assombly room with green cur tains. This building has an almost entirely nnobstructod command ot natural light, so that gas Is never used in any of the rooms. The J sanitary arrangements are the best that can be had under the old stylo ot sink drainage, and Miss Walsh has loutid nothing to complain of With respect to it: but, ns has boen reported In aprolous article, .Mr. Debovoiso Is going to nut In tbo norfocted new system this summer.

Tho only plujground connectod with the building is n room ontlrely under cover, not morn than sixty by thirty foot in dimensions, in which tho thousand girls of both departments of tho school hnvo to find their recreation. This consists of standing by turns on a line and talking to each other without moving any but n small portion of tho body. Tho building Itself soems to bo In good condition.

Congressman Perry Bolmont has doclded not io be n candidate for Congress again.

Ever slnco the olectrlo street railroad has been In operation great difficulty has been experienced with the escap ing current. By the system adopted horo the current is conveyed to the motors from the centjnl plant by a system of overhead wires. Fronj tho motor tho cunont passes through tho Tbeels to the rails, and is supposed to re turn to tho plant again. But It does not all of it 3horo Is a big quantity oscaplng all the tlmo,varylngIn Intonsity according to whethor tbe cars aro running light and on a levol stroUh of track, or whothor thoy are heavily loaded or going up somo of tho steep grados, of which thoro ore so oral on tho line. Tho electricity escaping Into the ground affects tho tolepoono system nnd ca jses n disagreenblo nndnnnoylngburzingsound. Besides. It causes tho drops to fall In the central ofllco. and no way to remedy the difficulty has been found. Last week Mr. C. D. Warner, a local eloc triclnn.determlnod to tOBt the powor of the os caplrg current. A wire was grounded near the electric plant in Dorby. no connection being mndo with tho track, nnd wns then run Into his oQlcoln Ansonla. some three miles away. Horo it wat tonnected v Ith the gas pipe nt Ids desk. The vire was cut, and a Maxim incandescent lamp wns attached to tho ends. Tho lamp was of ill ty.flve volts, or 10-candlo powor. Tho car bon nt once began tu glow, and as a car passed along Main stroot in front of his ofllco, tho lamp gno forth aelonr light ns strong as if on a regular light wire. As the car rolled fur ther nnd furthor away tho light grew dim, but when tho grado at tha foot of tho Dorby Hill was reached, and tbo motor took more of tho current from the wire, the lamp again shono forth ts brightly us over. An Edison lamp was also attached, and though this required 120 voltstocausoaregulatlonllght.lt showed uu clearly, and gave forth light enough to read by. It remained forthoovor-presont small boy to dlscowr a benefit In tho escaping oloctriolty. Not far from tho street whoro tho tracks nre laid nns tho Naugntuck lilvor.

On the contrary it was pleasurable though ut tlmossome of the boys would glvo n jump nnd a yell as though thoy had stopped on a ploco of glass ind out tholr feet. Tbo feeling was so pleasant thnt some of thorn remained in the watcrfor hours, nnd only came out when bun- f:er forced them to go homo for suppor. It Is enrntil by experiment that the sensations wore faueod by the electricity, and It Is pro posed py tho shrewd Ynnkcosof this monoy making town to lease tho banks of the river and oitnblish bathing houses, that people may take apleasunt, invigorating electric bath at a small cost.

A $1S a week bookkeeper Miuntorod along; the promenade path on the Fifth avonno sldo of Central Fork on Saturday aftornoon with his wife and a frlond at hlssldo. Theylookod wistfully at tho carrlagon and hansom cabs that rolled along toward tho obelisk. "I wish wo could afford that luxury," tho bookkoopor said ratlior sadly. "A drlvo through those shady paths would bo dollght tul to-day," "Why don't you enjoy It," his frlond said, " you oan do It tor n quarter a head." " How ?" exelalmod tho bookkoopor In a tono of glad surprise. "How,"retortodhls frlond. "Whytakoono ot theso Fark oarrlages. that's how," said his friend, pointing to one of tho six-seated car riages that roltod by just then with a lot of bright children and their nurses aboard. The bookkeeper's faco showed that ho had made a very pleasant discovery whon his friend told him ho oould make an entire circuit of tho Park for a quarter. Ho had novor known tho faot before although he had lived In tho town for twonty yoars. Thoro aro hundreds of men and womon who visit tho Park for an airing that aro In ooual Ignoranco of this ndvantago ono which tho Park Commissioners Intro duced somo time ngo oxprossly for the accom modation of tlioso who like riding, but who havon't the means to hlro a barouche or a han som cab. Th drlvo Is a docldedly wolcomo bit of sum mer recreation for those who havo boen kopt Imprisoned for hours in stuffy olllcos In tho hot nnd crowded parts of tho big town. Tho car riages aro comfortable couvoyuueos. Thoy have threo rows of carpeted seats, and accom modate six couples. Thoy muke a circuit nf the Park, from Fifty-ninth street and Eighth avenue, going west to 110th street, and roll down tho oast drlt o. Four stops are mndo dur ing the trip, and the passongers havo the privi lege of getting out at any one of the stopping filncos, remaining long onough to examine htngs of intorost In tho vicinity, and gottlng Into another Park currlago when It comes along. Tho first stop Is at tho Musoum of Natural History on tbe west sitlo of tho Park, tho next at tho Mount tit, Vincent Casino, and tho third nt the Metropolitan Musoum of Art and tho Obelisk. Whon children nre taken along with tho adults there Is a reduction of ten and fifteen cents In tbe faro, according to the ngo of the little passengor. It is an agroeablo tact that tho trip Is tho cheapest and most enjoyablo drlvo that can bo obtained anywhere In the town. It Is onjoy ablo at any timo, but it yields tho greatest amount of porsonal gratification and recrea tion on moonlight nights. Tho moonlight adds a plcturosfiucnosti to the scenery that Is so charming thnt carriage partlos made up of just onough to fill one of the four-wlieelotl vohlclos are one of the fonturesof theso summer nights. Tho millionaire who rolls along In his own lux uriant carriage doos not enjoy tho moonlight effocts nnd the refreshing breezes moro thor oughly than do these more oconomlcal excur sionists. Bwoot odors fill tbo air from tho blossoming bushos along tho drlvo way. The delicious odor of now mown hay Is waited on tho brcezo evory now and thon. Pretty moonlight effects delight the eye also. The big museum building and the oarvod stono bridgos ami rustle arbors bathed In tho sort light; tho illuminated Park Casino, with its hundred of globed lights twinkling through the treos; tho towering obelisk outlined with a silver fringe against th dark bluo sky ; tho big reservoir glistening bonenth the stars are but a few of the specta cles to be looked upon. The big Inko at such a time, soon in tbe distance from the passing carriage with Its rlDPllng surface, und dotted nil over with the glimmering red lantornn ol tho gondolas that dart hither and thither like floating stars. Is a striking plcturo thut fastens itself in tbo momory. Tho carriago goes winding around through a maze of treos und shrubbery nnd sweet sum mer por fumes for one whole hour, and then rolls up to tho starting point In fine stylo and discharges its cargo of piensod passongors. "Why. this is a perfectly delightful revela tion." said a party of girls, who mado tho trip for tbe first time last Sunday ovimlng. " Wo must bring our aunt und nor family up from the country somo time nnd show her that thero are green fields and blossoms in tho town as well as Interminable rows of brick and stono nous fronts and hot sidewalks.
