Joseph Shields, a young colored man. who

Vashington, was tried in the Police Courl

lenjamin F. Edwards was complainant in
he case. It was shown that the constable
rent to the house to levy on a sewing ma

onstable's complaint was that when he
ailed at the house the defendant and two
ther men ejected him.
"t'm an officer of the law." the constable

wered. "I don't care a d--n who you are.'

The result was that the constable and his

Elderly Woman Taken Into Cnstody
-Death of 3r.. Wheeler.
Sierial Ctrralensk-nee of The Evening Star.
LAUREL. Md.. March 13. 1900.
At a late hour last Friday night an elder
ly woman was noticad to be acting in a
very suspicious manner, and upon investi
gation it was learned she had escaped from
the asylum located at Catonsville. Md. It
is said she was sent out on an errand by
one of the officers of that institution, and,
not returning again that evening, word was
sent to the Baltimore city authorities, ex
pecting that she had gone to her home in
that city. On her way to this town she en
deavored to get lodgings for the night at
the house of some colored people about a.
mile north of this place, and by htr actions
gave them a scare, but they at last suc
ceeded in persuading her to continue her
way here. It was thought best to keep her
in the town hall that night, and narly Sat
urday morning the Catonsville authorities
were notified of her presence here. Later
an officer arrived to convey her back to

What the Colored Schools Need.
To the EdItor of The Evening Star:
In discussing the subject of the public
schools two questions are to b determined,
each requiring tender treatment; but, being
different, these qustions require the appli
cation of different methods. What should
be the course of treatment in dealihg with
the white schools Is one question; what
should be the course of troatment in dealing
with the colored schools is another ques
Our country Is intensely busy in looking
after and handling practical things. and
methods and an education, of whatever
kind, to be of service, must he practical;
it must arm the possessor with that kind
of knowledge -that wIll aid him In making a
success In life. The past training of the
colored people in this country has been
quite different from that of the white peo
ple, the resukt being that we have two Indi
viduals of dIfferent thought, different hab
its and different ambition, so that the pres
ent prevailing social condition of the two
races is the direct logical result of past
usages, customs and laws.
The colored child should be taught that
kind of education that will fit and qualify
him to successlfully meet the prevailing so
cial conditions in this country, and since a
public school educs-tion is all that a large
majority ever get. it Is of the highest un
portance that the essentials be thoroughly
taught and fixed in the mind in the public
schools. Rending. spellIng, arithmetic.
grammar, letter writing and compoeition
should be correctly taught and most thor
oughly drIlled In the pupils in all the
grades. These are the essential studies, and
may well be termed the life subjects, for
every person will be requlired to use the one
or the other of them every day so long as
one lives. They should receive, therefore,
more attention in the public schools than
any other. The next in importance should
he geography, hygiene, history, morals and
manners, and vocal muskc. Good t'xt books
on nil the foregoing subjects should he put
In the hands of each scholar, for in thIs
way the necessary faculty of taking hold of
a book or a subject and conductIng an in
dependent investigation is begun and
taught. After these subjects oth or. might
be added If time permits.
The proper authorIty should decide on one
system of teaching and know that every
tea~cher in the schools works according to
it. Ths same text books should be used in
all the schools. Each tescher in each grade
should be required to teach a prescribed
course, and if 10 per cent of her scholars
fail to pass, or If her successful pupils fail
to make an average standIng in theIr ex
amination for the next grade, she ought to
be either recommended for reduction In sal
ary or otherwIse dealt with as it may seem
beet to thi authorities. If a scholar he
transferred from one school building to an
other It ought not to be. so far as the ad
vancement of the pupil is concerned, any
more than a change of seats In the same
room; the pupil should be able to go right
on without any troubis. We have heardl
that some pupils In passintg from one grads
to another were compelled to spend the
fi rst three or four months of the year in
their new grade in perfecting themassive. in
the studies of the last grade before being
qualified to take up the work of the new
gre. This is a loss of time and a wests
of public taeasury. Teachers should be

as the neck is concerned.
n old paintings the pose of the head Is

The effect of the high collar is frequently
