PAI'I. X. A.NU I, SCHOOL. - AWREXCEVILLE, VA. in the One old county of Brunswick, situated on a range of 'commanding hills, overlooking the town of L.aw rencevllle. the county seat, la that re? markable missionary and educational work for the uplift of negroes, known as St. Paul Normal nnd Industrial School, Archdeacon .lames S. Russell, founder anil principal. To n strik? ing extent this school Illustrates the value of small beginnings. The work was Inaugurated on July 2, 18SS. When -the principal purchased a piece of land for $1,000, giving his personul notes for the same, as he had not a dollar In hand nor a promise of a cent. By fall the buildings were finished, und on September 24th, If SS. the Normal School opened with three teachers and eight boarders. That was twenty-three years ngo. Tills year the school had an enrolment of 538, representing various States of the I'nlon, and Porto Rico and Africa. There were fifty-four officers and teachers. The school owns 1,600 acres of land and property to the value of over $200,nan. Most of the buildings, including the New Memorial Chapel, were put up by student labor, much of the material used In construction being manufactured on the grounds j by students In Heart of Dlnck Belt. Within n range of fifty miles on any | side of the school 50,000 negroes can be found. The school is thus In the very heart of the black belt, and hence lills an actual need which the far-see? ing principal long ago recognized and has endeavored to meet. The nlm of the school Is so well stated In the foreword to one of Us booklets, "Ward of the Church," that It bears quoting: "Our Ambition: That the name of St. Paul shall stand for the highest Christian education, coupled with n good normal training and a useful trade of some kind. In other words, to be practical, to turn out boys and girls fitted for actual service In life. Por this reason, the course of training at St. Paul's eon templates, first, development of char? acter; then solid scholarship: then the dignity of labor We believe this sys? tem wll produce whole men und wo? men. St. Paul has no place for the young men or women who is looking for the glitter and tinsel of life; they' are not wanted. Hut for the honest, conscientious young man or woman,! having a purpose In life and a desire' for self-Improvement, our doors are al- ' ways open. To such one? pov.-rty need offer no debnrment." The school has sent out over 400 gtaduates and has had over 2.f>0u undergruduates in train? ing under these principles. The farulty Is selected with all pos? sible care and every effort is made to surround the student with good In? fluences. To this end there arc religi? ous societies for both boys and girls, dally morning and evening prayer nnd regular class room study of the Bible, beside? religious services and Sunday school every Sunday. Through the in? defatigable efforts of the principal and other Christian gentlemen there Is not a bar room In the town: In fact, Brunswick is a dry county. There are very few demoralizing ngencles . in Lawrenceville, The community is law abiding. Cod-fearing nnd church-go? ing. So it can be seen that the school Is -most fortunately situated for the formation of studious habits and the development of good character. In Itcurli of Poor. The price. ?7 r.O per month for board, lodging, lights, room and laundry, puts its advantages within the reach of the poorest. The industrial and work de? partments afford opportunities where-1 by young men and women may defray a part, if not all the expenses of their own education. Mauy of the students have pood trades and have huilt comfortable i tiomes and are making respectable I citizens and useful members of so I clely, and even helping those around them to do the same by the force of their example. In twenty-three years of the schools history not a single student of the school has ever been arrested or tried for crime. This is the kind of education the school attempts to put Into those who come to It. The school's educational work with the students is only one side of Its effort at uplift. It endeavors to reach the people at largo also. Obviously they can not cotno to the school. 30 the school in effect goes to them through its community and social work. The afllliuted and cooperating bodies through which the school reach? es the people are a farmers' Confer? ence. Teachers' . Association, Public School Extension League and a Tem? perance society. The conference encour? ages the people to buy land and build homes, to learn and to use better meth? ods of cultivation and to Improve their morals and standards of living. In the I seven years of conference work the j holdings of land have Increased from I 40.000 acres to 54.270 and In value of 1 land and buildings from $295,000 to I $r>GS,0S0. Personal property has In? creased from $70,000 to $173,531. The total realty and personalty Is $7 41, 612 as against $365,000 seven years ago. The negroes own one-seventh ?>f the total land urea of the county and their property. real and personal, j furnishes onc-slxth of the taxable pa lue: Ownership of land and In I creased responsibility nnd self-respect have caused n decreas In crime and criminal expenses. The average num? ber of criminal convictions has de? creased from twenty-four to eighteen, the amount of criminal expenses' from over $2,000 to $1,142 this year. The above figures are based upon report of the Auditor for October. 1010. Policy of Self-Help. In educating their children the ten? dency to self-help has nlso inc.rensed. Pour years ago, when the schools were first extended one month at county rate of pny by local self-taxation, ten "ommnnlties took part, raising $200. This year, out Of thirty-seven school communities, thirty-three participat? ed, raising approximately $700 for gi extension and $400 In monev and pledges for c.o-opcratlvr, school Im? provement purposes. This latter is still going on. One community is ruis Ing $300 to obtain a similar amount from the board to buil? a $600 public school building. This is the kind of work St. Paul is trying to do.?to reach those who come to it and also those who can not. Catalogues, literature and other In? formation may lie had by applying to the principal. St. Paul Normal and In? dustrial School, LawrenceVtlle, Va. I'diicntlon?The "Conduct of Life.*' I V'rom the News Leader of June 26.1 That such a Virginian as Colonel W. Cordon MoCabe should have a true, just and lofty conception of the real meaning of education Is not to be won. dured at; that so scholarly and accom? plished a writer should put his views with singular clearness and force was to be expected. But so admirable an article as he contributed to The limes Dispatch yesterday on this all-impor? tant subject was scarcely to be ex pected. as a mnttor of course from any man. It Is natural that Colonel Mc? Cabe should fool deeply on this sub? ject, and with singular force and clearness he has condensed In less than a oolttmn the substance of what he has learned In a long, active and busy lifo full of experlenee. full of opportunity, to know his stihjeet In nil Its various lights and shades, and ho has pre? sented his reflections and observations with all the skill hnd charm of a trained writer and accomplished scholar. Wo have from time to time endeav? ored to point out the difference L*> tween education and learning. Wo have deprecated, the proneness of tho public to confound the two. Colonel McCabe has drawn the distinction so clearly and so fore!b:y that his article on "Fitting Schools" should be In the hands of every parent in Virginia who desires to educate his child, and has the means with which to do It. In our appreciation of the need of public education, and In our enthu? siasm for the really excellent work that the public schooi system has done, we have overestimated ivhat the sys? tem could do, and have assumed that it can take the place of all other train? ing, and turn out educated men and women. The sooner we learn the llnil tatlons of the public fchools, the bet? ter for uur children. That they have limitations Is obvious to every ob? servant man. and Colonel McCabe has rendered a great service in pointing out these limitations Learning they ran and do Impart, tho books and the contents of th(. books are taught; but this, as Colonel McCabe shows. Is but a small part of true education. There are s.ome things which the public schools do not and cannot, from the nature of things, teach, and these are the most Important In the matter of education. The building Of character, self-esteem, truthfulness, courage (physical and moral) "are worth all the LtAtln, Greek and mathematics ever put between the Ilde of a book." Such Is the opinion of a rmm who exempli? fies In his own person fhe highest at? tributes both of character and of learning. The foundation of character-build? ing must lie laid at home, pnd for the structure to he complete, the home training must be supplemented by close personal contact with teachers and instructors in tho preparatory schools. and it must ho absorbed from the atmosphere of those schools where a high standard prevails. Mv reason of the great numbers attending our public schools It Is practically Impos? sible for such pers.mai con-act and In. tercottr?e between the Instructor and the pupil to obtain. "I hey are, In this respect, Hk? gr?>at universities. At these the student's character, in order to get the best results, is presumed to be lnrgelv formed before he attends them, and the ?hlef heneflt that he oe rives from thern is simply the acquisi? tion of book knowledge. The "Fitting School" that Colonel Mc.C.?,he speaks for does and h?s done for the pupil that which a great public school, no matter what, can ever do. As ft matter of course, strong rhnra< ters arid vigorous characters can nour? ish In sPl'e of training :>r the absence of training; but these aro exceptional cases, and exceptional cases arc; not what we are dealing with. The aver? age child needs to he trailed -trained In the home -and the training C-ivrled on In "lining schools." Our puhlto schools run do miteh, hut they e.-mnnt do all. and If we rely upon their doing all. we are foredoomed to grievous disappointment. Colonel MoCaha'j admirable article will iia^e o wide clrculaV.on, and we trust that It will he read and pondered by all who .?>-,> In .err.si.vl In the sub? ject of educa'.i .11 and capecially by all parents upon whom rey.ts the respon? sibility tox tia tr.tiriltjg and well being of their chll Iren.
