Parsons of the New York Art school gave a very in teresting lecture at the United church chapel, last nlg-ht, his subject being "The (Relations of ithe Hanldcrafts to 'Modern Life." Prof. Parsons said in t.-nart: "There is tin more lmnortant phase of education than that which teaches the usefulness of the hands. The object of such training is not pri marily self enjoyment tout social effl ciency. The regular line of school stud ies does not encourage this. It can bet ter be obtained through the handicrafts and the modern home is the best place for this development. The boys and girls should be trained in a sense of harmony and the beautiful. ' "For the last fifteen years there has been a great desire for diversity. Those who have built homes wished for one room on the style prevailing in the time of Ramases II, a dining room in the style of Louis XV, a bedroom in the Elizabethan style for their guests and anything thait was different for them selves. Who will say this is the Am erican or tlte New Haven ideal? Such an arrangement is rather a museum. We are on the verge of a new era. The ideal of the people of the middle ages was to fit themselves for the fu ture world. The modern idea is to fit ourselves no live in this world. If we, keep ourselves busy enough in this world we will surely Ibe fitted for the next. Since we are here for social efficiency we must fit ourselves to the circum stances. We must feel the social pulse, uniting hand and head. Authorities have differed greatly as to the defini tion of art but whatever has been said of it, art is the Joy and pleasure ex perienced by a human tieing whenever anything rare and beautiful Is present ed to the senses. George D. Post, who is perhaps the greatest living Ameri can architect, has said, "Not until the American people have found that art is not a fad; can they live in the sense that other nations have lived." We are made up of body and mind and it is for us ito find that occupa tion in which we can best express our selves. 'Many cooks and coachmen have been spoiled by the wrong sort of train ing. The iboys' and girls' clubs of our cities are the centers in which our boys and girls should tie given the right start." Superintendent of the public schools gave a short talk on the application of the handicrafts to the schools. Mr. Beede showed a large number of spec imens of work done by pupils of the schools. He emphasized the practical nature of the work and the fact that training meant more than the money value of the actual product. He scout ed the ilea than other studies suffered 'because of the manual training, and said that the other studies are as a matter of fact done "better. Grace P. Smith of the Boardman school and Supt. F. S. Hoyt of the Ed win Bancroft Foote Boys' club gave short talks. Mr. Hoyt gave some very interesting facts and indigents connect ed with the manual work of the clubs. The work done was, he saI4, neces arlly, limited because of other branches of work Chat demanded attention. Following the addresesa general dis cussion was hell and was enthuslastica ly participated In by many present. SIDE BY SIDE. Ever Journeying across the desert sands and climbing the arid peak's an.l foothills of the far southwe'i ato tw.i caravans one seemingly rugged and healthy, though afflicted witU a disease called goldomania, the ofher emaciated by the great w"iiti plague. , One is scarcely ?::ore optimistic than the other; one procession seeks a glit tering yellow dust lhat mea i? rlthes, the other a mere precioui thlrff--health. . Though the trail may be long and the water holes Infrequent; though the desert sun may be blister ing and the tongue swollen with thirst; though the mountains may Tae steep and the path ,strewn with cacti, there Is the glittering substance In the sanl a little farther on for the arsonaut; a lease of life at the horizon, when the red desert sun announces the dawn of another day, for the white plague's victim. To many seeking their wonted vigor the hope that ever carries them on ward Is sometimes as futile as the race after the wlll-o'-the-wisp that lures the argonaut But the procession moves on and on; the pilgrims can not leave the sands until the mountain air and sun shine have healed the scars made by death's chief ally. The main trail of the wijak-lunged leads from Pecos to Yuma. For more than 1,000 miles prospector and plague ridden traverse Its tortuous course. In the caravan seeking gold nearly all are poor. In the caravan exiled and fighting for health there are rich and poor, high and low, democratic and fraternal in their Ills and expectancy. To some this hope is as uncertain of realization as the prospector's pot of goli at the end of tha rainbow. But many who have early Joined the pil grims, after years of travel by, day un der the scorching sun and sleep by night In the pure air of he mountain top, end their allotted exile and return to the old home 1,000 or more miles distant. But the ranks are soon Tecruited. And some there are who must travel along the great highway until the end. Oftentimes the bones of .prospector and plague-ridden are found bleaching In the canyon. The skeleton hand of one Is outstretched up the hillside, where others reach the goal and gold; the bony fingers of the other point home. FORESTERSMN SESSION.
