For (treet, ac:ory and store the
!ectiic liglit has proved to great a
iurctwttiat a strong wish is felt to
have a !inU to pare and void of un
Kho!tsomenc?a and heat, rnd clear of
ii jvry to b olr.3 and ric!urpp, for house
lighting. The presort iucanr'est'erjt
Hpht proves to be too dear to compett
wilh Rag. This is mainly Owirg to
the expenfe cf the copper wires re
quired. The Wrstingkcnso Eltclric
Corapacy of ritlrburg, Pa., baa com
pleted a system by which only a foot
of copper wiie is required where the
Edison sjstem required a hundred
feet; at an expense of $160 where
the Edison costs $150. A thousand
lamps have been supplied and lighted
in a six mile circuit, three miles awsy
from the dynamo. The dynamo is
also modifud, to that two of them de
liver alternate currents on the same
wire, and can be connected or discon
nected at pleasure. There id vow,
therefcr?, full prospect that we shail
have onr houses lighted by electricity,
at a pile, at mo.it, as low at
cas. Thia looks serious for the
jus interest, but the coipaoy
propose a plan of preventing Iobs to
iU. It is proposed that where eltc'ric
lighting has made goa unprofitable,
the gas compunius shall enya.e in
supplying beat instead of light. The
value cf gas heat is dmontia ed by
the natnnil gas of Pittsburg. Instead
of the present illuminating gas, beat
ing gas will be manufactured. This
will be delivtred by (lie pipes already
down, sopplyirg foundries, factories,
shops and residence?. All this accom
p'ished, will make quite a change
wi!hin our houses, ai d the public will
await with impatience the revolution,
on large scale, of the new sjstem of
betting and lighting. Companies are
already oiMnireJ tbkt will go actively
at work at one. to introduce their
domestic incandescent Ytht.
If we contrast the abaolnts ignor
ance of the babe with the anioant of
knowledge displayed by a littlo four
year c'd, we cannot but be astonished
at what has been obtained. The child
has learned to walk, learned to speak
a language intelligibly, to select its
food, to obey its parents, be respectful
In ite manners, and a crowd of other
thioga that, all put together, raise the
qafitlon whether as ninth in learned
' in any other four yearn cf lator life.
Very much of this fund of knowledge ii
g lined without euldancs or aasistance
on the part of others, and the ques
tion snfgPbts itself whether, by cartful
instruction adapted to its early years,
the child might not be made to learn
much tl at is useful that is not gener
ally taught, and to be kept from
learcirg many things that are dis
agreeable or hurtful T The kinder
garten sjstem was instituted to do
this, and experience has demonstrated
its value and capacity to tnrn the
exercise of the young pupil's powers
into right direction. We have re
ceived the November number of
Tht American Jiindtrgarttb magoaine,
and its contents show Ua',
while giving foil play for the li:tle
folks' desire for amusement, a founda
tion cf instruction Is laid, without
coercing the will or iibridging the
playful freedom cf the iummturo
learnt m. The dolight they take in
' going to the kindergarten school, and
the plussnre they express in j rattling
abent their rrcupations there, is fall
proof of the absence cf any such re
itraint ts thwarts or opposes the na
tural liveliness of childhood. The
first article In the magazine before us
is "learning to Read." It is full of
scientific wisdom, and well it
would bs if every parent could
perajse it. It shows that a child
should not learn to read until it bsi
been trained up' to, say, 9 yeara of
age in the kindergarten. This posi
tion is sustained by the following
among other reasons: In the early
years the child derives the knowledge
it gains through the senses, which are
then most acute and active and are
able of profiting from intelligent and
skillful training. The r. (1 active pow
ers are very weak, facts are gathered,
observation is alive and the mind ac
cural! ates a Block of what we
may call primitive knowledge, upon
which it continues to draw aa long
as life continues. The facts are
not rea'enod about or refl ected nponj
they are accepted without challenge
and unconditionally trersured np for
future nse. Therefore such facts
should be presented, not through
books, but through the souses of sight,
touch and the rest, by presenting them
in a mancer tl:a'. will bs diverting to
theycung, irn A ctive student. The
kindergarten mode of presenting tbeae
facta is by meaos that interest
the expanding mind, offering objects
of varioos kinds, and leading the
little student to observe their resem
blances and differences, and become
interested in knowing where they
come from, and bow they grow or are
made ; to distinguish form and color ;
f know the nios of what tbey are hand
ling, and so oi. Iu this way the very
toys of the little one become its in
structors, and its play briegs in wis
dom before the sportive, amused child
knows what wisdom is. By the time
nine cr ten yeara are reached the cu
riosity is aroused, and the desire to
know comes on rapidly. B) prepared,
the rh Id learns to read with
out the cocstrakt' and sorrowful
. incidents t-o cjmmnnly at end
ing tbo daily ta k. The poers of tb
tera'.ion Laving be n intel.ig"nt'y
tfevelcpo J, there a i ee a slrcng d. tire
to m-qu re and t r b ex;cr:. When a
t go twined is able !o read, the re
fljctlvij powers afo brought iato ac.ion
by Iho'dolight felt in understanding
much about objtcU well known from
the training received, but known
ma nly only by their external and
more obvious qualities. To a miod
so led along the path of knowledge
of what if fact and exists, no
novels, dime or other, can outvie
the traction of natural history,
travels, and S3 on. That thn novel ' is
net true" takea oQ the edge of fascina
tion, and it requires the powers of
literary excellence and the charm of
vraitnnhlance or poetic beauty, to gain
the attention. The moib'd, the pruri
ent, the extravagant, acd the vicious
have no cliHrms for a mind that has
been trained to treasure truth and
h' ard np fac before, it ever knew
what truth and fact were, as distin
guished from their opposite).
la honest y the beit policy? u a
question that, we suspect, many peo
ple never try to answer. Many people
do not like to answer a question they
know would lead to a coccluston un
favorable to (heir own honesty. But,
putting aside principle, continual
proofs come up that honesty, ai a mere
expediency in trade, pays belter than
dishonesty. As an instance on a Urge
scale, the Eng ish for many j ears, pre
suminir on the Igncrsnce of semi-civil
iz-d people, have manufactured cotlon
Droducta of a very inferior quality
This wretched stuff is stiffened with
"fliiina." o as to give it a substantial
feel to tho touch. UnsophLtic na
t.vet bought the cheating rubbish,
only to discover the first time it wss
put in water that tha stuff was a
cheat. Tho effect on tho ia!e of these
products is such that recourse
is bad. to marking the goods
with Amorican brands. Another
fraud that will bs detected
in its turn. As the American goods
are not got up in this fiaudulent style,
the imitation of the American brand
is a cnurcttsian, on a large scale, that
honesty it the best policy. Bradtlrut't
tells us this week that gray American
shirting in now the chief foreign im
port of Eastern Africa. The Arabs
and Bamalis find it to be durable and
lit of e.ing, and they prefer it. The
Bombay mil's in India have got up an
imitation article, but the natives have
discovered the fraud, and ttand by the
American article because it is an toa
eBt one.
Russia, ruid all the powors having

Prince Nicholas is in bis fortieth year,

ceded Mingrelia to the late Czar. The

ciHtion resumed its eestioa early this
mining, but np to neon bad taken
no Bdion oo any of the subjects under

to a proposed change of the rule re

proposed to have but one style of ba'l,
to be called a "fair ball." the range of
whieh shad be between the knee and
At the close of the day's te ion, nu
merous changes bad been decided
upon. In place of the stone at tbe
home pla'e a base similar in size but
made cf white rubber was recom
mended. The position of first and
l hi id basea wai moved seven and a
half inches, so that the bags would be
inside the foul lines, thereby helping
the umpire in decidir g whether a h t
fell in fair or foul ground. Tbe new
rules of the American As ocietion
concerning the position of coacbeis
were favorably lectived. They re
quire that to coaeher shall not he near
er than sixty-five l et to the home
plate, thereby preventing a coacher
from running along the line from third
bite to the home plate to ditconcert
an opposing player. Action on the
pitcher's lules md locaion of the
pitcher's b.x was laid over until to
mcnow. Tbe league rule concerning
tbe position of benches and bat racks
was u.orporated in tbe rules of the
American Association. It was nnani
ui(.us!y HKiefd that in the future all
cluba playing under the national
agreoment slull use oither th9
Spalding or Roach ball. This was
done to prevent the usinir of dead
bills, eolt Dalls, or lively hal's by o'her
associations in their exhibitions with
leauue or es oc atinn clubs and to
make a standard ball It was also re
quired of the Ameiicao Asscciaion
that each ball muct be weigheu,
measured and sealed, with tbe name
of tbe secretary noon the box con
taining the ball, the tauie rs is in
vogue in the lea' m. Iu the mini? of
two balls tbe committee suggests that
when a ball iahatnd out f eight ot
the play ars another mutt be substi
tuted, instead of waititg un'.il the
ba'.ttd ball is returned. Whenever a
ball is ripped or damaged another
must be at occe brought into play.
The American Association wss alJ
lowed to use the flat bit, as it so de
sires, tbe same as the league. The
leaitue field rules, with the s'ight
modifies ions, were also extended to

instead of six bal s and thres s r kes,
as heretofore. When a batmao takes
his base on balls he shall be credited
with a .base bir. A batsman shall
tike his bate when struck by a pitched
ball. Any motion whatever on the
part of tbe pi cher made to deceive
the bat er shail be considered a ba-k.
Many of the mo eitnporiant changes
me rporated tbu f ir have baen at the
suggestion of the Advisory Biart,
couipised of Captjius Arson. Ward.
Cmekey and Saartwoid, who, it
u rje.i;V6!i, a'e ca rying out the
views and ninbes of the irreat ma
jority of the players in botii cf the
great orgir.iziti ug. Pe fect harmony
seems to exi-it. between the committee
and this boa d, nd ttie work has been
greatly simplified and reidired far
more effective by the ad mi si jn of the
plnyen as r preventatives to tbe
council. A number of baseball mag
nates and others prominent in tbe
affairs of the na ional game arrived
th s morninir, and other! will reach
bere tjnignt and tomorrow morning
Among the late comers are Frederick
Stearns, president cf tbe Ddtroit club;
Jno. B. Sag, ex-p'eiiuent of the Rat
fa'o club; Jno. T. Morrow, president
of tbe Southern League; Manager
Watkins. of the Detroit', and CI fl
Carroll, of the WaBhingtnns; President
Hewitt and Manager Gaffaey, of the
Wasbin.tona; A. a. fcioden, ot tbe
Bostons, and representatives ot tbe
Kansas City and St Louis teams will
be here this evening.
One of the important matters to
come before the league meeting to
morrow is tbe completion of tbe league
circuit for the following year. Tee
president of a league club stated to a
reporter tbis morning tnat ne Deuevea
the Question of the circuit would be
settled before tomorrow night. Pitts
burg will be renresenled here tomor
row, and tbe delegate is now here,
though who he is could not be ascer
tained. League offio als say nothing
when questioned about tbe matter.
It is rumored, however, that Kansas
City will bs dropped and Pittsburg
will be admitted to fill the vacancy.
If in running to bate tbe rnnner
touches and detaches the bass bag
without being touched by the base
man, he will bs safe.
Captains of cluba on'y can qusstlon
any decision of an umpire.
The old rule reqniring tbe runner to
re' urn to h e base on run when a foul
hit is made was rescinded.
Hereafter rnnner can walk to bis
base. No runner can have a substi
tute runner for him in case of an in
jury, but if hurt mutt retire from the
game. A batter is out on fourth strike
under the new rule, whether the ball
is dropped or passed by the catcher.
The question of having two umpires
and a referee was brought np but tbe
majority of the committee voted
agninst the scheme and it was dropped.
A modification of umpires' rules of
both organisations was adopted. Tbe
pitcher's box was shortened to five
and a half and the pitcher will
be required to keep cis forward
foot firmly on the ground when about
to deliver the ball. His rear foot must
bs on the back line ol the box, and
he will be a lowed to take but one
step when delivering the ball. Tbe
ball muat be held in plain sight of the
Pitcher cannot, as heretofore, deliver
ball to batter after making feint to
throw to first b.is, but muat resume
his position in his box. Only two
roachers will be permit'ed, and they
shall have the right to talk to basa run
ners cn'y.
For talking to batsman, coacber will
bs reprimanded for first offrse aid
be forced to give up his ccacbiug and
another man he put in his place on a
repetition of fault.
In ecorinir, when tbeba't r is given,
his base on called ballf, a hit is cred
ited to ths lattor, and an error given
to the pitcher in thn summary only.
All batting errors ars cbtrgedinthe
summary, ssaie etrned two and three
base bits, rone rune, double plays,
base on balls, bit bv pitcher, passed
balls, wild pitches, time of .game and
tame of umpire.
A Dilcber win be uivea no credit for
a Btrike out. In the p'ace t f total
bases, a ree.rd cf stolen Laea will be
kept. Any at'empt made by a player
to sted base?, must be tredi ed wheth
er an error is m do or nor, if the run
ner is tuccessftl i i reaching tbe baae,
