U4My sf r " American schools are girdling Arth and America la becoming the the schoolmaster of the children or almost every clime and nation. This fact has been specially emphasized recently by the announcement of recent gifts ag gregating $100,000 for a girls' college at Constantinople by Miss Helen Oould, Mrs. Russell Sage and other prominent women. Dut these schools do not merely girdle, but gridiron, dot and cover the most distant parts of the planet, making commercial enter prise retire to the background by comparison. American school lessons echo from the banks of the Euphrates to the Congo and from the Amazon to the Yellow river. This extension of our public school system, except for the necessary ubo of native tongues, might hardly be differentiated in merit from home Institutions. The Biibjects and methods are the same, from kinder garten to Iatln and botany; football teams, debating societies and college yells, very polygot, complete a perfect likeness. The beginning of the secular school work of the United States government In Its possessions acquired through the Spanish war is a record of hurry un achievement that would have shocked the old-fashioned educators. A cargo of BOO men and women teach ers was shipped to tho Philippines In the summer of 1901, and a command ing general estimated that their paci fying influence was equal to ten regi ments of troops. American schools In Porto Rico have more than doubled in the last "nine years. The Hawaiian Islands began to come under the Influence of the stars and stripes In 1820, when the American board of missions started Its work there, and now there are 20,000 scholars In private and public schools. A self-governing system is in opera tion among the scholars of the Royal school In Honolulu. Oahu college Is the oldest institution of higher learn ing west of the Rockies. Amid the icy desolation of Alaska there are 52 pub lic and many mission schools. Per haps the northernmost American school in the world is on the frozen brink of the Arctic ocean, at Point Barrow an old mission station. - It has been estimated that above 1,000,000 pupils attend American schools In foreign lands. Including all kinds of Institutions, from kinder Mrtens to colleges, there are not less than 8,638 of them, divided among the various denominations as follows: Methodists.' 2,041; Baptists, 1.832; American board, 1.633; Presbyterians, 883; Disciples of Christ. 36. The fig ures of the Episcopalians are not given in' this estimate. A great increase In Korean school work for last year was described to the writer by Messrs. Underwood 'and Sharrocks, missionaries of the Presby terian church In that field. There was t- . en na, Mnt In ttiA ntimher a gaui vt vw v-" of schools and 72 per cent, in at tendance. The Presbyterians now have S44 schools In Korea, and nearly every one. is self-supporting. ' - The Methodists have a flourishing college at Tokyo. The Episcopalians and Presbyterians also maintain col leges at the Japanese capital. The Kobe College for Women Is on the list of the Congregationallsts, other wise the American board. It has half a dozen buildings and a goodly teach ing staff.

A million pupils a year, under the auspices of several different national ities, are enrolled in the schools or Protestant missions in India. Ten col leges, 35 training schools and 50 high Bchools and seminaries are among the mission enterprises. Persia is largely In the hands or the Presbyterians, who started Urumia college in a cellar in 1824 and now Learning to Saw at Industrial School In the Philippines. have 150 schools In towns and cities of romantic names.

The Baptists are ex tending the American idea to 8,000 pupils along the Congo, while .the Methdists and Episcopalians are es pecially strong among the woolly haired seekers after knowledge in Li beria.

No excellence of material can make up for carelessness of application, any more than care in applying it can make poor paint wear well. The surface to be painted should be dry and scraped and sandpapered hard and smooth. Pure white lead should be mlxod with pure linseed oil, fresh for the job, and should be well brushed out, not flowed on thick. When painting is done in this manner with National Lead Company's pure white lead (trade marked with "The Dutch Boy Painter") there is every chance that the Job will be satisfac tory. White lead Is capable of ab solute test for purity. National Lead Company, Woodbrldge Building. New York, will send a testing outfit free to any ono interested. PROBABLY HE WAS.

F. Simmons, San Antonio. Tex. . Dear 8ir:-I nm in receipt ofjow faTor of the 7th Inst., and hi answer will say that I visited the Dr. C. Simmons ranch in Atascosa Count, Tendon February Wh, 1907. I spent all day the 8th, and stayed all night it the Brown rancn, then rode allay the 10th over the ranch, making two full days of hard riding on horseback over this ranch. I met Mr. Franks at Pleasanton. He has been foreman on this ranch for 18 years, and knows every foot of the land. I told him I wanted to see the poorest land on the rapch, and he directed me how to go, and after two aays hard riding I was fully satisfied with the proposition. Isaw three artesian wells, and was within three-quarters of a mile of the fonrth one. 1 tasted the water at one of these wells and found it to be ill riant It wa very warm, as I understand all artesian water is when it first T cVmes from the well. I am satisfied this well is furnishing enough water to irrigate 1,000 acres of land. It is in Headquarters P""ture. I found the soil to be from a heavy black to a dark red, and all the shades between black and red. In fact, the sod looked good to me, and I believe I know good land when I see it. . . . I have read carefully the printed folder .and examined, the (little book. "New Homo Sweet Home" with regard to the pictures printed m it, and will mv they are all there just ns natural as life. t n. While 1 did hot fet to see all over the ranch, I saw enough to mtisfy me that it is all riht. I saw the country from San Antonio via Corpus Cbristi to Brownsville,- but like the Simmons ranch better than anything 1 T have invested in this Simmons proposition and am now making prep arations to move there this fall, and f wish, to av to my friends and all of their friends, take out at least one application. You can t go wrong. It is the garden spot of the United States. Wishing you success, I remain, - Yourajruly. B. Q. MATTIES. .
