TOPICS OF THE SCHOOLS.
The t-.tchers and papils of lUicblc
i>cbtK>] feel under obligations to the
board'of education for the two handyotne
niw flag* lately received, and
vhlrh are now floating from the bulldli;fr?v.
They are very beautiful types
.,! Old Glory." and they will be kept
i: :ng whenever the weather will peri.
. This Is one way of teaching pa- tri
Jtlsm, 1. e.. to keep the Stars and
Snipes nailed to the maNthcad. and
e;vr floating. In this way a respect
. our nation's banner will become a
j irt of the very being of our boy* and j
iris, and a generation will be reared '
*..it will 8oo to It that it will never be
huuled down where It ha.** bVien placed
by those having the authority to rainc |
These flags are not only an orna,\.
nt to our school buildings, but they
..:?o show that our board of education
inactive to the necessity of teaching J
irue patriotism to the coming men and
wojuen of our city.
it is n Kreai uuns 10 ue a icucner.
!s this true? It may be and It may
j:ot be. If it means a mere drudge, a
.*ichool keeper and a salary-drawer; If
it means this, and nothing more, then
it Jw no compliment to be a teacher.
Hut If It means one whose life Is given
for the good of others, whose whole
heart beats In sympathy for his fellow
mortals, and whose life currents flow
out Into thousands of hearts, making
them better, freer and happier, then
it Is a great thing to be a teacher.
There are hundreds and thousands In
our land to-day who arc up on this
high plane, and who can truly say It
Is a great thing for me to be a teacher,
while, perhaps, many can say, I am
but a school keeper; I never have felt
the heart thrills that come, from reaching
other hearts by my work or my example.
Such ought to leave the profession,
for none should dare to take
upon himself tho name of teacher who j
doos not Uo so from a sense feeling that
this Is* his privilege In so doing, to
work for the good of others; not only
bis privilege, but his duty, and his
pleasure, to do.
The longer the writer teaches the
more he feels the importance of liav- !
Ing u perfect understanding between i
teacher and parent. It would lighten
the work of our teachers very much,
and make-it a great deal more effective
were they to know personally every
parent. How many teachers In the
city of Wheeling know the parents of
all the pupils under their charge, 1. e.,
by the time the year is half over? We
venture the assertion that ther6 is not I
one. It is Just as much the duty of
the parent to know Just how those who
are teaching their , children are doing
their work. Corne and see them at
their work Just as often as possible.
It will do all concerned good.
Some one has said that our methods
of teaching grammar are all wrong. If
they are not, says the same writer,
then the graduates of our high schools
would be able to write a correct apI
plication for a situation. The charge is
made that they cannot do It now,
though they have studied grammar for
years. Granting this to be true, where
is the fault, for fault there must be
IcameWIicru; it muat ue in uk upjmv;utlon
of the teaching. One-half the
time"In every recitation In language
or grammar should be spent in composition.
If a definition Is cited, an
original sentence should be used by the
pupil to Illustrate It. It is all right
to know the definition, but the knowledge
of these. Is of no account unless
the pupil, knows how to apply them.
Take, ?or example, of what use Is it
to the pupil to know that every sentence
should begin with a capital letter
If he does not put It Into practical
use in his writing? Better, far better,
teach the use of good language without
the rules than to know all the definitions
and then violate every principle
learned In our writing or our speaking.
Some- few are taught the use of
good language at home, but the majority
are not. and It Is the duty of the
: teacher to lead these Into the formation
of the habit of correct use of our
mother tongue. The teacer who does
this Is doing more than- m*-ny of our
tcachers are doing. The Wheeling
schools are taking advanced ground
on this subject; this year there will be
better teaching In language throughout
our schools than ever before.
One of the greatest accomplishments
our young men or young women can
have Is the ability to express themselves
in good, plain English. This
cannot be secured in the study of rules,
as before hinted, but only in methodic
training In the use of language In composition,
In sentence building and In
reproduction. This, and this alone,
wll ido it. It Is the teacher's duty to
make every recitation In language a
rJnocnnt nnrl n< nrnflbihln onp to the
pupils. He should be trained to sec
the beauty of language, especially the
beauty of expressing a thought In
clear, concise English. He should be
taught that the simplest way of expressing
a thought Is the best way. He
should be taught to shun the bombastic
style of the stump speaker, but to
love the style that- will present the
thought so clearly that "he who "nThs
may read." Not every one can be a
great writer or a great speaker, but
every boy and girl can be taught to
express his or her thoughts In a manner
to be understood by the reader
or the hearer, as the case may be.
When our teachers become so permeated
with these truths that they will
^ act on them, then our boyn and girls
a will receive the Instruction that will
| help them acquire the ability to write
well. Many' a young man otherwise
bright ban failed to secure a position
from the fact that his letter of application
was so badly construotcd. These are
truths, and we, as teachers, may as
well admit them, and resolve to <lo
different work in the future as regards
I the teaching of language than we have
| been doing. We need stirring up on
this subject from tho lowest primary
grade to the highest school grade.
One month of school is gone. Is the
record Jujrt what we would have It?
We nil resolved to do better work than
we ever did before In all our Jives.
Have we done It? Won our work
better than during the cnrreHpontllng
month of last year? It ought to have
been from the foot that we have the
benefit of an entire yenr's experience.
If we feel that the record of the month

THE RAILROADS. I
Within the next few month ta, the
management of the Pennsylvania/railroad
system west of Pittsburg will haw
acomplished what Is regarded as one of
the most pretentious undertakings at
wire-fence building ever attempted In
this country. For more than two years
the work of lining the Pennsylvania's
rights of way west of th<? Smoky city
with woven-wire fences has been carried
on as fast as condltos would permit,
and now almost 4,000 miles of fence
are up. The cost has been enormous,
for the wire is of the galvanlied variety
and the posts are of locust wood:
The wire fence*, when the work planned
shall have been completed, will
mark the company's rights of way on
all of the main tracks excepting those
In the large cities, where sufficient precautions
against accidents have been or
are being taken. The Pennsylvaule'8
line between Pittsburg and St. Louis i*
about C18 miles long, the Chicago and
Pittsburg being about 4CS mites In
length. These lines with the controlled
branch roads that feed them have a
milage of about 2,000.
New Equipment,
An unusually large amount of new
J equipment la being ordered this season
by railroads. Larger freight cars and
more-powerful locomotives are In .demand,
and the roads that have let contracts,
have stipulated that the locomotives
shall be ablo to outpull the powerful
moguls turned out a few years age.
The Kansas City Southern is reported
to have contracted for the construction
of ten compound locomotives, and the
Oregon Short Line has solicited bids for
ten "consolidateds." The Nihv York
Central recently has placed an order
with the American Car company for 500
box cars, each with a capacity of 60,000
pounds. The Maine Central is having
200 freight cars built, and the Toledo,
St. Louis &.Western is said to be
in the market for about 300 freight cars.
The Chicago Great Western has placed
an order for ten Baldwin compound lol
r.nmntlvo3.
Millions Givon Away.
It Is certainly gratifying to the public
to know of one concern in the land
who are not afraid to be generous to
the needy and Buffering. The proprietors
of Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption, Coughs and Cold? have
given away over ten million trial bottles
of this great medicine: und have
the satisfaction of knowing It has absolutely
cured thousands of hopeless
cases Asthma, Bronchitis. Hoarseness
and all diseases of the Throat, Chest
and Lungs are surely cured by it. Call
at Logan Drug Co., druggists, and get
a free trial bottle. Regular size, 50c
and SI. Every bottle guaranteed or price
refunded. S
FINANCE AND TRADE.
The Features of the Money and Stock
Markets.
NEW YORK. Sept. 29.?Close: Money
on call nominal; no loans; closed
offered at 2 per cent. Sterling exchange
weak, with actual business In bankers'
bills at $4 S?% for demand und
at $4 82*4 for sixty days; posted rates
$4 [email protected] S3? and $4 [email protected] S7Commercial
bills S4 82U1P4 82%. Bar silver
G3%c- Silver certificates 6i?^0)6i^uc.
Mexican dollars 49Tac.
State bonds weak.
Railroad bonds Irregular.
The stock market was a narrow* and
professional affair to-day, which ended
with a show of animation and strength
on account of an active demand from
the short Interest, which covered on the
bank statement. This element saw en?
courageinent in the fact that the Inroad
upon the banking surplus was restricted
to less than 51,000,000, while a
much heavier depletion was expected.
This sentiment seemed not to be affected
by tho fact that a decline In the
reserve requirement of over $3,000,000
was responsible for this result which
was brought about by a contraction of
J5.6G8.400 in tho outstanding loans for
the banks. The actual decrease in cash
was slightly In excess of that of last
week, as had been expected. Besides
the liquidation in the stock market, a
large volume of time loans Is said to be
maturing at this time and the proceeds
of these the banks are Inclined to hold
for higher rates, as explained below.
The prospect of favorable developments
In the coal strike.situation over Sunday
increased the disposition of the
bears to cover, and the recovery in
prices from the early low level ran between
1 and 2 points under the principal
active stocks, not a few of which
showed net gains of a point or more.
The early selling of stocks was encouraged
by selling for foreign account and
by rumors of financial dlillcultles in
Merlin, where the exigencies of a settlement
rnusoil n 1utnn nf 9 nor In
the rate for short discount bills. The
steel stocks were rather Arm throughout.
Intimations from officials of, several
of the great trunk lines of an intention
to provide for the year's need forthwith
at the present price of 526 for steel rails
helped the group. Large receipts of
raw sugars, doing away with some of
the danger of a shortage helped sugar.
A feature was the further marking
down of sterling exchange rates by tho
exchange bankers. In spite of the
nominal, character of the Saturday
market.
lVlces of stocks have shown some
violent lluctuatlons during the week
and mounted to a level considerably
higher than on last Saturday. The feverlshness
of the market has been almost
wholly due to the difficulties In
which the bear operators became Involved
throimh thoir too great eagerness
to discount the prospective decline
in prices. The unwieldy proportions
to which the bear account had attained
made it vulnerable to attack
and when the probability became
known of a settlement of the anthracite
coal miner's strike, there was a
powerful and Influential combination
of speculators ready to take quick advantage
of It and.help the up-turn
ngalnst the bears by every manipulative
device known to the professional
operator. .
The bond market wan weak in the
earlier part of the week, but recoveries
In some Issues made the market Irregular
later. Dealings were not large at
any time.

l,73C,ooo bushels, and the world's at
8,000,000 bushels. October opened at
