Mr. Kditor: It has bti u my privilege, recently, to listen to two politicd speeches, and, with your permission, will nuke comments on e:ich through your paper. One of them was deliv eird by the Ktv. John Knell of Ma comb comity, who anticipates a lift by the prohibition party (the legislature) of Michigan to a short term seat in the U. S. seuate; the other, delivered by our esteemed lellow citizen, Dr. A. W. Nichols, the populist nominee for the guhcrnatoiiul hwiiors of the state vs. Todd, Kisher ami Kich. The prohibi tion fpraL-r aiul oilice seeker appears like a fair minded man and said many Hood things iiiiiDii;' which, he in formed us that intemperance had be come a great evil; and so it is! Now his plan to obviate and forever wipe out the evil, is this vote the prohibi tion ticket, advance his party to power and edeii will he restored. Happy sug gestion! If we could be persuaded to believe such to lie the result, the temp tation would be to cast our ballots for his party. While we have evcrv reason to believe Mr. llnssell to be a good man, he is, like the rest of mankind human, ami ditlers very little from other oH'u-e seekers on tin stump an intense desire for "getting there." Mr. Kussell went further than we are will iug to follow, when he stated that to vote for any other party, than the pro hibitionist, U to vote for the saloon. While it may be true, that every pro hibitionist is a temperance man, it is uot true, that every temperance man is a political prohibitionist. This fact was brought to view in ls7, when a prohibition amendment was submitted to the people of this state and the vote in favor of the amendment was 17, 000. And because this proposition was submitted to the people hy a republi can legislature, the prohibition party was reluctant to accept of prohibition fiom such a source: and, lest they lose their party organization, they put iu nomination candidates for olliee that same year and polled lM.ooo votes for their third party ticket Why was it that IGO.OOO voters were a- ready to support the prohibition amendment and unwilling to enter into the third party movement? Simply because they be lieved that temperance should not be made a political measure. Iu other woids. temperance, like religion, should be cherished by the members of all political parties, ihsides, political organization-, are foi solving "thei yreat political problems as well as to regu late the li-iuor tratlic 'While we all agree with Mr. Kussell that the, intoxi cating drink habit is deplorable, is it true, that prohibition is the only rem edy, or even the best meaiH for its .sup pression. Experience is a great teach er. And what are the lessons taught during the last live years? Simply this und nothing more that all the states that have tried prohibition, save Maine alone, have repealed prohibition and adopted high license, and some of them, like Michigan, have coupled local op tion with license. Mr. Kussell, in his speech, referring to license having taken the place of prohibition, said that Maine would do the same thing. The solution is this when a prohibi tion law is first enacted, there is more or le.s enthusiasm over it among the temperance people and while that is up to high pressure point, the law will be enforce , in the villages and rural dis tricts, but scldon in the larger cities, ami soon this ardor is abated and the law becomes a dead letter and the tinal result is free whisky, and drunkenness staggers forth at noonday. The republicans of Michigan enacted a prohibitory law iu lsj.j, and it re mained a valid statute for twenty-two V years, and the last ten years before its repeal, Michigan had virtually free whis kv; and such were the conditions in Minnesota, Connecticut, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts and Rhode Islaud, these, and all other states, thai have tried prohibition, have now adopted high li cense, except Maine, and it is expected that Maine will do the same. Massa chusetts and Rhode Island have each tritd prohibition three times and have declared the experiment a failure. New York has a license law. In our own state of Michigan several counties adopted local option w hich is prohibi tion and most, if not all of them, have gone back to license. Why is it that the license laws have supplanted and set its iron heels upon prohibition? Simply this, that the people have learned by sad experience that there is more intemirance and drunkenness, under prohibition laws than under license. The purpose of such laws is to abridge, as far as possible, the use of intoxicants as a beverage. It was learned in Iowa, that thera were twice al many places where grog was sold in 1893 under prohibition, as there were in 183 under license: and the good people of Iowa were forced to adopt license again to cut oil', at least, one half of her rumshops. Now, suppose the prohibition party comes fully into power, what will they do? Why, they will amend the constitution and enact prohibitory laws, of course they will. Now, if it is true, as has been demon strated over and over, again and again, that prohibitory laws enacted by demo cratic and republican legislatures are not enforced, would the same laws be any more likely to be enforced, simply because enacted by a prohibition party legislature? Common sense answers no! Any party must be possessed of some thing superhuman that expects to legis late morals, temperance and religion into the people. Were it possible to legislate such qualities into the people, it" would be total abstinence eilectual, should such legislation tale place. And that would be the end of the sa loon curse for the reason that jteople post.-ssed of such high virtues do not patronize the grog shop. If we would have a people strictly moral, temperate and religious, it will not do to dejieud on legislation. It is seed that must be sowu in the conscience, by the parents in the earliest dawn of childhood and cultivated as the chihl advances, with more care than that of a tlower garden, that we may, iu due season, realize the desired harvest. Aud, for co-operation in this work, much depends on the kin- l -rgarten, Sunday school and other teachers. While the rank and tile of our third party prohibition friends de sire temperance, provided they be ex cused lrom making complaint aud prosecuting li.juor offenses; we class their leading oilice seekers on the same footing with other politicians, "they want to get there." A gymnastic show is always ready to issue complimentary ticKets to the clergy that it may be an nounced from the pulpit. So with the third party leaders, who wish to stride tin temperance horse ami ride into power, but this is too noble a steed, and unused to the political jockey track and with him they will never win the race. Massachusetts. Michigan and other states have a local option law. Now if prohibition is really what the third party leaders want, why do they not go t work to make the option laws operative? Uy so doing they would have, the co-operation of the temper ance element of all the parties; and wherever the option laws are enforced, there is prohibition. Rut that is not what they want so much, as they do to "get there." It lias been boldly as serted by Mr. Abbott of Brooklyn, N. V., and Mr. Rrewer of Michigan, iu public speeches that the third party has never closed a single saloon in the United States. If that is true, it is be cause they fear to stir up the beast. And if through fear they leave him iu his den, then it is unworthy to inono oli.e all the weapons for lighting him. I must leave my comments on Dr. A. W. Nichols' speech for another article. W. E. Wistox. SCHOOL COLUMN. Sensation and Sense Perception Origi nal and Acquired Percepts The Attention. 1 B Y C. H CHASE.l In the article of last week sense per ception was brielly mentioned. As there indicated, and as the name im plies, it is a two-fold process the one of passivity and tecptivity, and the other of activity, a taking. An (iKKilXAL l'KKCKPT is the knowledge gained by the mind through a single sense when exeieised alone. An A( vn ii;ki pkhcept is the knowledge gained directly by one sense supplemented in the mind by knowledge previously gained through other senses. To illustrate, let us suppose the case of an apple and knowledge gained of it by the senses independently. It is tak en in the hand and its spherical shape is perceived, its size, its smooth surface, its hardness or mellowness, its weight by the pressure which it exerts, and its mobility. With but the one sense our knowledge of the apple could go no farther: the percept would be made up of only such properties as could be dis covered by the sense of feeling. Again, supposing it possible to separate the sense of touch from taste, and we were endowed only with that one sense, the percept of taste would be only that of a certain flavor of the apple. Of smell, likewise, the percept would be only of a certain odor. Again, wu are sup posed to know nothing of the apple ex cept such kuowledge as we can gain through the sense of hearing. The ap ple falls to the lloor, and we perceive a certain sound, different from that pro duced by a marble or other object; and the mind forms a percept of the apple through this sense. Lastly, through the sense of sight, we could discern outline, color, sizes by distance and distance by size or, in other words, we perceive that apparent size varies as we approach or recede from it. These widely differing percepts of the differ ent senses are termed original percepts: and it is only oy the constant associa tion of these percepts with each other and the object, that complete knowl edge is gained in the acquired percept. Thus, after the training of a few yeais from iufancy, the sight of the apple brings up all the knowledge previously gained through all the senses. The mind immediately supplies the half which is not seen the side opposite that toward the eye the percepts of feeding, taste, smell, etc, are all blend ed together in one complex idea, which is classified as an acquired percept. We hear the sound of a violin, and its shape, color, and all other properties which we have learned by previous ap plication of the senses, are represented in the mind as an acquired perception. I pass into a darkened room and smell a fragrance, which I at once attribute to a rose, and the mind pictures its shape, color, etc, immediately, without the intervention of the other senses. These acquired perceptions, while in ordinary affairs of life accurate and trustworthy, are, nevertheless, the causes often of error, when the mind must depend on one sense. This is not to be taken as an error of tho - process, so much as a defect in the previous knowledge on which the acquired per cept is based. We say with accuracy there goes a bell, a gun, a cart, a train of cars, though we have no direct knowledge except such as comes to the ear by sound. Yet the singing of the teakettle may be mistaken for a far dis tant whistle; and the rattling of a wa gon on a bridge near by may be mista ken for distant thunder. So likewise with sight. An object is first placed near the eye, then recedes till it dwindles away to a mere speck. We judge of size by d stance and vice versa. So if we judge size, by a false ly assumed distance, the'judgmcut is erroneous. Thus if a building many miles distant Is judged near, then we judge it to be smaller than it really is; on the other hand, if an object really near bo placed by the mind iu the dis tance, it looms up in size much larger than it is. The 'same applies to meas urement of distance from r. falsely as sumed .size of objects. Like errors are made in acquired percepts, when we judge distance from intensity of color, an assumed size of other equidistant objects, from the number of interven ing objects, etc. Rut, in each of these cases there is a lack of knowledge of something on which the mind bases its judgment in forming the percept. A building is judged, not from knowl edge of it, but of some similar one, and this erroneous assumption is made the basis of an erroneous percept. As may be inferied from what pre cedes, every acquired percept is formed by a process of reasoning. It is, in fact, a process of INDUCTION. It involves comparison, association and inference. It is a process of put ting data together to form a completed whole. It differs only from the philo sophical process of generalization in that the data considered are different. In the latter process the knowledge gained by all the powers ami processes of the mind are taken as data upon which to base a general law. For ex ample, we see that all unsupported bod ies fall to the earth. We see that a plumb-line is deflected from a vertical position when near a large mountain. We see that two bodies free to move, as floating bodies on jicrfectly calm water with no air or water currents to interfere, will gradually approach each other. We observe and deduce the fact that the moon moves in a path such as it would if it were drawn to ward the earth by some attractive force. So with the earth and planets about the sun. From these data, variously de rived, the mind passes by infeivuce since it knows no opposing fact, yet knows so many pointing in the same direction to the general proposition that every particle of matter in the uni verse attracts every other particle. Rv observing the rapidity of approach of bodies of known mass and distance from each other, also the deviation from a straight line of bodies moving under the influence of gravity and an other force which is known, we deduce the law of the inverse sqtiaies, and thus establish Newton's law of gravitation. Ry such processes are all the great laws of modern science established, in pro cess the same as that employed by the child iu his earliest years in the forma tion of acquired percepts comparison and judgment, or inference. TIIK I'KKf'KI 'T INK 1 'O W V. KS of the mind, as stated in the first arti cle of this series, are the earliest devel oped: and, therefore, the early period of childhood should be taken up in teaching the child how to gain com plete and accurate knowledge of things through the diiect media of the senses. Hence, the objec t method, in the hands of a skillful teacher who is familiar with the processes and order of mental development, is productive of highest and best results. Written and oral de scriptions of objects are an invaluable aid to the teacher's work, in the earlier periods of school life. Require the child to express in lan guage what he knows of certain things. This knowledge may be then supple mented by the teacher, at the same time requiring the pupil to verify the new facts by examination and experi ment. Ry this method two ends are gained increased and more accurate knowledge of things and increased power of expression. Ry this discipline in early life to learn projierties of things completely and accurately the pupil will tie armed with a power which will enable him to grapple successfully in after life with great problems, while those not thus disciplined will be quite unable to en counter them. The great object to be attained, then, in the kindergarten and primary grades, is quickness and keen ness of sensation, and completeness and accuracy of perception. Another point to which we may with profit refer is the ATTENTION. The attention is the power of holding the mind to one thing to the exclusion of other sensations w hich are constantly thrust upon the mind and tend to dis tract. It depends wholly on the degree of activity or inactivity of the mind. If the mind Is in a passive state, sensa tions flood the mind through the ave nues of the senses and produce fleeting picture. analogous to the rapidly chang ing pictures of the kaleidoscope. Each sensation produces its effect and is gone. Rut the moment the mind is aroused to activity it selects some one of these sensations to the exclusion of others which do not pertain to the same thing, collects and compares kindred sensations, and Anally, arrives at a conclusion by inference. Now the pro cess of education cannot be carried on without arousing an activity of the mind holding the attention. There is a natural difference in activity of differ ent minds. Rut there is always some particular mode by which each mind is most easily aroused: and herein consists the skill of the teacher in knowing how to approach and arouse different minds. Attention, then, depends on the activity of the soul, or mind, and without this activity all efforts to communicate knowledge will le in vain. The mind may be compared to a current of elec tricity. If directed through one chan nel, it is a power if dissipated by the ground wire over the earth, its Influ ence is lost. So the mind, directed by attention in one direction U able fc ac complish much; but, distracted in many ways at once, is capable of nothing. The mind active! drawn in one way or channel is in a state of attention; drawn passively in many ways, it is in a fctate of distraction. How most easily to arouse activity and hold attention, should be the con stant study of the teacher; for this eas iest way will differ with the mental constitution of the pupil. The subject of the next article will be the representative faculties of the mind aDd the lessons to be drawn from them by the teacher. From our regular tur respondent! WASHINGTON LETTER. Secretary Carlisle ought to feel ashamed of having lent himself to the trumped-up charge against Mr. Mor ton, the republican candidate for gov ernor of New York, of having violated the alien contract lab: r law, knowing when he did so thatyit was done for no other purpose than to attempt to ar ray the labor organizations of New York rtgainst Mr. Morton, and that no attempt was really to be made to con vict Mr. Morion of the absurd charge, the idea being merely to keep the mat ter open until the eeection. The facts in the case, which were promptly stat ed by Mr. Morton as soon as his atten tion was called to the matter, are plain enough tor even the most bigoted dem ocrat to see. The man in question is an Englishman who was employed by Mr. Morton as a domestic servant a class expressly excepted by the aUen contract law, and a class in which white male Americans are seldom found while he was in London, and who re turned with hint in that capacity when he came home. Had Mr. Morton not been the candidate for governor of New York the case never would have been heard of. As it is, the bringing of such a charge is an acknowledge ment by the democrats of their desper ate condition iu New York, and it is not likely to influence the vote of any intelligent nr.in against Mr. Morton. On the contrary, it is more likely to make him votes among men who are are too honorable to countenance such dishonorable methods on the part of the democratic, or any other party. From north, from west, from east, aye, and trom the south, too, nothing but good news comes to the republican congressional campaign committee. The people are thoroughly alive to the necessity of putting an eilectual stop to democratic legislation before it has brought the country to even a wor-e condition than it now finds itself in, and thev know that the first step need ed is to put the republican party in control of the house, and unless all in dications are at fault they are going to do it next month. The figures contained iu the annual report of the commissioner of pensions, for the yoar ending June 30, 1x9 1, tell a story of the manner in which the old soldiers have been treated by the dem" ocratic ollicials that ought to make all democrats blush with shame. The commissioner covered into the treasury the enormous amount of :?;. 205,712. G5, which remained unexpended of the money appropriated for pensions by congress, while there remained unacted upon in the files of the offices applica tions for pensions to the number of oTJ,U27. During the entire twelve months covered by the report only 39, 0x5 new pensioners were added to the rolls, while for death and other causes 37,951 were dropped. It adds to the bitterness of the story to say that only 10,1 18 of the large number of applica tions remaining unacted upon were filed during the year. And at this very minute u large portion of the cleri cal force of the pension bureau, which should be at work on the unacted upon applications, are putting in their tune on work that has no proper connection " ith pensions trying to elect demo cratic congressmen. Every old soldier who votes the democratic ticket en dorses the pension and other policies of the administration. Oh, yes, this administration dispenses reform in great big chunks all the time. It was democrrtic reform that carried live members of the cabinet to Ratavia, New York, incidentally to hear another member of the cabinet Secretary Car lisle deliver an address on Robert Morris, but principally to try to help alcng the tottering democratic cam paign in that state, and it was also democratic reform that caused the cab inet party, which included a number of ladies, to allow themselves to be hauled from Washington to Ratavia and back again in tho private cars of two railroad magnates, furnished gratis by the railsoads and even provided with refreshments, liquid and otherwise, at the expense of the ever big-hearted railroads big-hearted in their dealing with ollicials who can be used by them. A great many people are asking whether an ollicial opinion rendered by Solicitor Reeve, of the treasury depart ment, will result in a flood of pajK-r money, similar to the "red dog" and 'wild cat" currency of state bank days. The opinion is that any county, the constitution of the state in which it is located permitting, has the legal right to issue interest bearing bonds in uny denomination. it may see lit, and that such bonds are not liable to federal tax ation. It is believed that under this opinion, unless it is up-et by the courts, a county could issue bonds as low as one dollar each and make the interest so low that they could be used as cur rent"), thus practically issuing its own money, which would be a little more than even the wildest populist in con gress has ever advocated, to say noth ing of its knoeklng-out the law which imposes a tax of 'JO per cent on all cur rency other than that issued by the government, a law which congress at its last session very positively dc lined to repeal.

Reports at hand form the basis lor the following statements: Acres of wheat harvested in Ix'jl 1,2S7,51; bushels 2 1, 027, n' 19: average yield per acae 0.7j. The acres here given are as shown by the farm statistics of the State, taken by superxisors last .spring; the average per acre is taken from records kept by threshers, and the total yield is obtained by multip!ing the number of acre in each county by the average per acre and footing the products. Correspondents this month were re quested to estimate the proportion of the wheat crop that will be fed to stock. The average of their estimates is about lx per cent, or nearly one-lifth of tho crop. It is yet early to make this esti mate. At the most, the figure repre sent only what farmers exjiect to feed. They an now feeding largely to hogs; later, the will feed to other stock. Attention is called to summary of state ments of correspondents, printed below. The total number of bushels of wheat reported marketed by farmers since the September report was published i.s 1,523, '-71 , and in the two months. Aug Ust-September, 2, 170,07 1. This is 1,i5u,J3u bu.-hels less than reported marketed in the same months last year. Oafs are estimated to yield nearly 2U bushels per acre, barley lx J, and corn P. Potatoes are estimated to yield II percent of an awrage crop, land winter apples are estimated one- half and late peaches three-fourth of an average crop. About "J 5 per cent of the wheat will b" fed to stock in the following coun ties: Alh'gan, Rranch, Calhoun, Clin ton, Ingham, Lapeer, Macomb. Shia wassee, VaiiRuren, Gratiot, Mecosta.
