Where Our Schools Fail.
The remarkable development of the
common schools during the past twenty
five years is an advancement of which
the American citizen is justly proud. It
is without a parallel in the history of the
world; yet the most enthusiastic friends
of our common school system are not
blind to its defects.
One great defect, a defect characteris
tic of the times in which we live, is ex
pansion at the expense of thoroughness.
An expanding curriculum is the fad.
Each new superintendent, principal and
school board must revise the course; new
studies are added until the distracted pu
pils are lost in a whirlpool of uncertain
ty. Each year the requirements become
more exacting, and the pupil's time more
limited. Social obligations are more and
more crowding school obligations to the
wall. The boy of 15 swells into the pro
portions of a man and the Miss of the
same age entertains her beaux and graces
balls and receptions. Even a little school
entertainment is thought incomplete un
less it winds up with a dance. All these dis
tractions dissipate time and attention and
sapviitalty. If parents would insist on the
children during the school age indulging
in nothing incompatible with school du
ties and the best health, one defect would
be remedied; but parents do not always
control their children, or at least do not
But to continue this same thought a
little further. We have expansion at the
expense of thoroughness. Under the
present system the high school graduate
knows a little, sometimes a very little,
about many different subjects. Under
the old system he knew, or had an op
portunity to know considerable,about a
few subjects. Even the dullard was
bound to know something about English
and mathematics and kindred subjects.
Rhetoricals used to be a regular weekly
or monthly exercise in country and vil
lage schools, and the weekly lyceum or
debating club in which, the community
generally participated was a valuable
auxiliary. All this is out of fashion now.
Rhetoricals, the horrid things, have been
relegated to the garret. School papers
have died for lack of intellectual support.
Debating clubs have been forced to in
troduce talks and entertainments. Debat
ing,or declaiming,is too great a tax on the
mental equilibrium of the modern young
man whether in the high school or out
of it. Because of lack of proper and
sufficient drill in the schools, graduates
are less and less able to express their
thoughts in correct, forcible and fluent
English. Because of the multiplicity of
modern "isms" and "ogics" homely sub
jects like grammar, rhetoric, history and
geography are crowded to the wall, and
graduates show lamentable ignorance of
the history of their nation and state. In
other words what they will have the
most occasion to use in after life they
know the least about. We do not con
tend that the modern curriculum should
be shorn of its modernism, but that there
should be retained as a prominent part
of it the best of the old features, tinder
which the youth of former generations
attained to usefulness and greatness.
And then there is the much mooted
questi.on about moral training. Some
contend that all moral and religious in
struction of the young should be left to
the home and the church, and sure it is
that most of it is left to somebody. In
some places it seems almost against the
unwritten law that the Almighty or the
Scriptures should be mentioned in any
way for fear individuals of some sect will
be offended. While morality is based on
religion, we believe it is possible to
teach morality without being offensively
sectarian. Character is based upon
morality,and young people cannot launch
their frail crafts upon the turbulent sea
of life with too much character. The
common school cannot be sectarian, yet
we believe it can and should teach morality-.

xiie oc. Aioans Messenger latners tins
statement; "This is the time when the
selectmen of Vermont towns and the
aldermen of Vermont cities are figuring
backwards and forwards, upside down
and wrong side out, cross ways and end
ways, side ways and all ways, to see if
they cannot doctor up the liquor agency
accounts and prevent any of the profit
from going into the state treasury as re
quired by law." There is a lot of doctor
ing going on, but keeping the profits
down to ten per cent or less is not so
difficult a task as the contemporary seems
to think. A few items like "rent," "ex
penses," "sundries," does the business.
The Messenger adds : "The practice has
merely become a part of that fossilized
old hypocritical farce of a prohibitory
law, that strange statute that lulls the
consciences of otherwise honest men, and
tempts good old fathers of Vermont
towns to deliberately lie and falsify their
accounts to cheat the state when in their
own private business they would not de
fraud even Shyloek out of a farthing."'
The general secretary of the Brooklyn
bureau of charities has been using
through the newspapers some strong
language regarding the popularity of
rummage sales. He thinks the effect is
demoralizing. "No right-minded per
son," he says, "likes to see the poor ar
rayed in the cast-off finery of the rich.
It is not profitable for the poor to buy
such articles. It is unsuitable as well.
I fear the people, usually, w.ho arrange
rummage sales, nave little thought of
aiding the poor. If there is anything
worth buying at these rummage sales the
second hand dealers get it and what
left is not worth buying.11
The report of the congressional com
mittee on hazing at West Point was sub
mitted last week. It roundly scored the
hazing practices and the bill submitted
by the committee contains 11 sections
against hazing and provides means for
its detection and punishment. Dismissal
is provided for taking part in a fight or
challenge, directly or indirectly, or for
any form annoying, harassing or "brac
ing" cadets. Cadets dismissed are made
ineligible for appointment to the army,
navy or marine corps. Provision is
made for courts of inquiry, courts mar
tial, closer association between officers
and cadets, and other means effectually
stopping the practice of hazing.

The Agency System.
One argument for high license has
been exploded in Montpelior so far as the
matter of public revenue is concerned,
when it transpires that the city realized
a net profit of over $3,000 during the
past year trom me liquor agency, une
would scarcely expect that even with a
license law a place the size of the Capi
tal citv could reap a more luxuriant har
vest from saloon keepers. 11ns ought
to satisfy the license men, but how about
the other side. When they come to con
sider that on an average each man, wom
an and child in Montpelier consumed live
dollars worth of intoxicating liquor dur
ing the fiscal twelve-months, they will
most likelv reach a verdict that the
agency system as it is operated in Ver

Brattleboro has the well deserved rep
utation of being a little above the aver
age in most of the good things that go to
make up a first-class New England town
but in one particular line this fortunate
town is so pre-eminently at front of the
procession that tew American cities,
laree or small, can compare with it. We
refer of course, to Brattleboro as a musi
cal center. In this line its fame is not
entirely because of its chief manufactur
ing enterprise, tor m that fair town they
occasionally have home-talent concerts
of the class that the crowned heads of
Europe delight to listen to. The people

General Grout Active.
While General Gront probably agrees
with Private John Allen of Mississippi,
that " the people are not sending their
best men to the senate nowadays," it is
evident that in his last days in congress
he is as interested, in Vermont affairs as
at any previous time. Always a tireless
worker fie seems to be as busy today as
at any previous session and the house
will greatly miss him after his long serv
ile in that body. Gen. Grout is receiv
ing many compliments and expressions
of good will from the Washington news
papers and correspondents which are cer
tainly deserved, for while serving his
state faithfully he has done much to
advance the interests of the national
capital. While it is true that Gen.
Grout has earned the right to enjoy the
remainder of his days from all public
cares and excitement, it is hardly prob
able that his close connection with pub
lic affairs for so many years, coupled
with his natural activity, will make retire
ment to private life for any length of
time quite desirable to him. Therefore
we are liable to hear from Gen. Grout
again in a public way before very long.
The Cigarette Law.
The anti-cigarette law is now in force,
but its effect in reducing the use of cigar
ettes liv minors is not yet apparent. The
b ivs who smoked them before smoke
them still, nor is it difficult for the smok
ers to obtain them. In fact it doesn't
require the ingenuity oi a snan to cir
cumvent the law. No prosecutions have
fcken place for selling to minors none"
