If reports be true from all parts o the state, the schools of West Vlrginl: are all In a very flourishing condition The university 2ms already- more pu pJls than ever before; our norms schools are full of pupils, while ou high and graded schools are doing tli? work which Is to keep those hlghe schools filled with pupils In the years t come. What a work is being done evei in our own state of West Virginia More than Ave thousand earnest teach ers, dally meeting with and training ai army of boys and girls who are to b our future men and women. How the? teachers (men and women) ought to b consecrated to the work, for there 1 none higher. We often think of th Christian minister's work as being th most responsible work In the world, bu a little thought will show at once tha the public school teacher holds a posi tion far above his as to the forming o -I < IT a tW. .klM n-kna, ciiekrtiiier. xac uiccw uw vmw ? *??' mind Is not formed and he is permttte< to mold that mind at will, while th minister has to do with minds alread; nurtured to a very great degree. Re ber, then, teacher, that you are permit ted to sow the seed in Boil in which 1 will sprout and grow, no matter wha kind of seed is sown. If you sow goo< seed, then rich will the harvest be, bu if bad seed, then, remember the old am true stanza: "Every sower must some day reap From the seed that he has sown. How carefully then it becomes us t< ltonn A watchful eye on the seed, and seek To sow what Is good, that we not wee] One day to receive our own." Is the course-of study In our clt: schools Just what It should be? Parent complain of having so many books t< buy and that their children cannot lear: so many lessons. When the time come: that there will be no complaints what ever, wo may be sure the education* mlllenial has come, but is there no some good grounds for these complaint: and would it not be well for those having the matter in charge to go-slow I: the introduction of any new studies' Would it not be the part of wisdom t< see whether we might not do away wltl some studies instead of adding to th< curriculum? There are but three dls tinct studies, viz.: Language, gclenci and mathematics, and no child shoulc be burdened with more than four stu dies at a time. This seems to be thi the Idea in arranging the course In ou high school, but In some of the grade: of our ward school children are forcei to pursue nearly double that number It order to finish the course of the differ ent years before their admission to th< high school. The writer does not sug gest any change nor is the writer In complaining spirit, but when an efTor is being made to introduce new studies It Is well to consider the matter as t< whether we do not already have enougl work for our pupils to do. The football season lias opened it earnest, and now our universities, semi narles, colleges and high schools ari vlelnq with each other as to whlcl shall excel In this snort. Indeed, thi success of some schools Is now measur ed by the success or failure of It Rugbi team. Someone will say. "Why shouli It not be sot All the elements of trui manhood are brought out by Indulglni In this sport." Whit are our scbnoli coming to anyhow, when they are thu: judged? The writer has heen permittee to see but one game of this sport, am he never ivlslvs to see another. It I brutal, to snv the least of It. It Is wel that our newspapers In reporting lt.glvi It a placc alongside the prize fight They are surely on a par wun cnci other. In speaking; thus. I refer to wha the game Is, not what it formerly was or what It might be now, If properlj conducted. THE PEDAGOGUE. ABOUT PEOPLE Htrflligera In the city an.I tThea!ln~ Pro. # pUAhioml. I* B.

TAKE ??ACB THIS AFTERNOON, amfttiv ftw a qpvq a Trnv a? nr. CURRENCE. * About 2 o'clock this morning, Police Officer Joe McCaualand,who was patrolline lil* beat, on Fourteenth street near the St. Charles hotel. heard a woman's cries from some place In the rear of the hotel. The burden of her cries was: "Ob, don't do that." McCaualand ran around Into the hotel and thence Into the dark alley way and yard at one side of the hotel. On the ground a man and a woman were struggling. As the officer approached, the man saw him and springing to his feet tried to escape, but the officer was too Quick and nabbed his man. McCaualand called in Officer Knabe, and the woman, her assailant and her httaVmn/V #1?a la-Hor havlnnr toeen in the - hotel at the time of the assault, were taken to the city building. The assailant of the woman proved to r be James Watson, a man of about thirty i years of age, who has been employed u by Mr. Robreeht, proprietor of the ho tel, as a driver. It seems that the wo>1 man had some difficulty with her huir band, and had asked Watson to lead e her out of the hotel. Watson took her to r the alley back of the^ hotel and there o committed the assault. n The woman was Nora Sarver, of ! Pittsburgh, who has recently lived In a - house In the East End. Her husband a was a young man of this city, the son e of a well known merchant. The wog man showed a marriage certificate, e .showing that she was recently married s to the young man in the state of Ar* kansas. It 1s said they had just arriv t ea in tne c?iy irom me wesc, ana were t stopping at the St. Charles hotel. * The husband of the young woman u became quite excited when he learned j of the assault upon her, and Insisted e that he should be locked up in the same cell with the man. Of course the po^ lice officers would not allow this. The t pair were allowed to go their way after J a preliminary hearing had been held at J police headquarters by Squire Rogfers. j The squire took the testimony of Police Officer McCausland, who testified to what was occurring when he came upon the scene. He also took the testimony of tlje young woman. He issued a warrant, charging Watson with the most ? serious of the crimes sometimes grouped under the name of criminal assault, } and the hearing will be held at the a sou Ira's office this afternoon at five o'clock. The young: woman In the case is an attractive person of twenty-one years, a brunette and handsomely dressed. She was naturally very nervous and shaken over the affair. After the hearing, "Watson was taken to the county Jail from the lock-up, and committed in default of $500 ball, THE RAILROADS. President M. D. Woodford, of the Cleveland, Lorain & Wheeling Railway Company, has compiled his annual report for the year ending June 30, 1S98, and as lias been foreshadowed, a very favorable showing has been made. President Woodford says in effect: General Results.?As compared with t the preceding year the gross earning.*! increased ?296,2si, or ?m.&? per cent, ana , the net J114.05S, or 29.59 per cent. While this Increase was largely due to the Improved"business conditions of the ) country. It was emphasized by the fact ? that during the year a number of the 1 Industries contributing to the business 5 of the road increased their capacity and output ttf a very considerable extent, i These net earnings have only once been 1 exceeded. At the beginning of the year J a general strike of coal miners lasted i for elevea weeks, during which time I the freight revenues were materially * reduced. 1 Maintenance.?"While rigid economy e has been exercised, fret the condition of the property has been steadily lmprovJ ed, as follows: A large number of coal cars lias been r entirely rebuilt, of Increased capacity and equipped with automatic couplers, 31,969 ties have been laid In the main track, and 3.',260 In side tracks, and in ballasting the main track 31.890 cubic yards of gravel and 37,750 cubic yards ^ of furnace cinder have been used. New Industries.?The Lorain Steel s Co., the successor to the Johnson Co., Is actively engaged in consirucunp *wo r modern blast furnaces at Lorain, which 1 will be the largest In the world. It I* expected that they will be ready for op[ oration about the first of January, and will then furnish largely Increased ? freights to your road. The works of , the Cleveland Shipbuilding Co. at Lorala have been In full operation, and give employment to 800 men. Status of Coal Trade.?Since April 1. " 1898, the co4ii business of this road.

Chicago Times-Herald: When the iiuinou utiiua ucmccu *ui?v buu i Chicago were put In service by several A of the eastfern roads the respective man- J agement determined that, as they were more expensive in both equipment and in operating than ordinary trains, they should be made to pay, as well as possible. Hence the extra fare, and the order that none but first-class tickets be ft accepted. " When the annual passes for officials k of other railroads were sent out the " next time by these roads, all were restricted to use on the ordinary trains. The excruciatingly fine points of railroad etiquette are *iot generally known to the public; in fact, tne impression seems to prevail that eveo the definition j of the word is unknown to the average railroad man, but, nevertheless, the of- . flclals, in their relations with each J other, are greater sticklers than even army officers. It .would be a rank breach for the general superintendent of one road to officially address the % president or general manager of another. Ho must write to the one hearing the same title as himself, and he In 1 turn writes another letter to the next 1 official of his own road above or below ] him, os the case may require, and if he * doesn't know what to say he writes a formal letter to the next one, and so on until it gets to the man who can answer. Then a fresh batch of letters must be written, as the correspondence backs up the 6ame channel it came, so In the course of a week or two the orig- ? inal query is answered. So the annual passes for the high officials are signed by the corresponding ? official of the road Issuing them. The Nickel Plate road did not run any llm- } Ited trains, and the first thing President Caldwell of that company noted, when he received his annual over the Lake Shore, was the restricting clause, "Not good on trains 1, 5, 4 and 8," these being the limited numbers. He thought for a moment, then wrote o few words on a slip of paper, called his secretary and told him to have a rubber stencil jmade. II Soon after the Nickel Plate proslden- f tlal annuals were laid before him for I< signature. He at once picked oufe the ono for the Lake Shore president, to- \ gether with the formal letter of inclosure, signed both of them, firmly press- r* ed the rubber stamp on the face of the pass and sent them promptly to their ? destination. d The next day the Lake Shore president received the pass. It was in custo- l< mary form: "Pass John Newell, president Lake Shore & Michigan Southern railway, and partly. In private car, over all lines. Good until December 3L" And across the face of the pasteboard, in flaming red letters, he saw the words "Good only on freight trains."
