Souther* Colored Man Who Inventod Clock Became Well Known Scientist. Benjamin Bnnneker was born Nov. 9. 1731. near Elllcott Mills. Mil. In 1770 he constructed a clock to strike the hours, the llrst to l»e made In America. From 1702 to 1900 he cal culated and published annually Ban neker’s Almanac. lie also assisted Major T/Enfant to lay out the streets of Washington. ho! hr quite proficient In knowledge of civil engineering. Bnnneker was also a member of the French Academy of Sciences, being made a member on the recommenda tion of Thomas Jefferson, who esteem ed him highly for his scientific knowl edge and who said In a letter to him ask turn-lodging the receipt of a copy of his almanac that ••his race should ha\e an opportunity to vindicate Its color.** Jefferson was a Democrat of high character UPLIFT FOR RURAL SCHOOLS. Booker T. Washington Shows How to Do It Most Effectively. In larg*.* sections of the south the parents of most of our rural children are ex-slave folk, whose lives have been spent wholly on the farm, says Booker T. Washington. They know little about proper cooking or proper housekeeping and not much about rules of health. They have no idea as to bow a home should be kept. Bro ken cbair>. floors with holes in them, broken windows, leaky roofs, soiled dishes and table linen—all these are about the child from Infancy. Seeing this, it early became clear to us at Tuskegee that if we really wish ed to dovetail school work into the real life and for the uplift of the peo ple something more than the abstract teaching f cube root and the conju gation of verbs must be imparted in the classroom. To solve the problem we hit upon this plan in Macon county. Ala. We determined that to be of the greatest service to the child, to combat his en vironment, we must not simply provide a special classroom, but must make everything surrounding the child serve as schoo. As an experiment we constructed a building n the order of our southern cottages ontaining rooms for a family and in addition a large assembly room. We the: secured a family, in which both pa: uts were teachers, to live in the building. Following this, we made the understanding that every room in that house and everything about the house should be-a schoolroom; that the front yard, the back yard, the stable, the hors the cow, the garden and the little far: adjoining should have their place in *he day's schedule of teach ing. The dining room. the kitchen, the bedroon are nil oi>en daily to these children vho are shown how to clean and ke*: them, actually doing the work. The girls of a certain grade take turv- in doing the cooking. They leave home in time to prepare the morning meal for the teachers and family. Tills is served properly in the dining r rn. which has been set in or der by Another group of little girls, the aim being that all shall learn the best method*- f doing things. AH tl Is done under the vigilant 6ye of the mother teacher, who is thor oughly * inpetent. having been trained at Tusk« gee institute, masteriug trades os well * academic work. The girls In the 1- 't classes are taught cook ing. but ! 1 the girls do gardening, housed*- ling and sewing. The boys come in to directly under the eye of the mat f the house and care for the small ftnn and do in addition a cer tain am int v of farm carpentry. CARLTON YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION.
