I'nder the guidance of Stnator llobin
h jd, wLilo t Luunng, the editor visited
tlm two above uarntd inhtitutior.B aud
Mell weh he rt paid for the time spent in
Superintendent Church, of the Wind
school, informal us he had over 100
children and young people io hia can.
The school stand on the outskirts of the
-city and is evidently well adapted for its
jiurpone; it is wonderful b6w tbechildren, !
many of w boat w ere born blind, can be
vla'igbt to the extent they are. The
younger children are put first in the kin
dergarten department ho as to Rive th m
mi idea of order, and first taught to
braid three cord; some of the you ousters
nreaaeptS !c Echini? with clay and
tome of the work in the kindtrtfflftfa
leparttnent would compare more than
favorably with that In our public schools.
One boy whom we met in the hallway
recited quite a long piece, while another
eaid he could not recite, but he would
tell uh the presidents, and another gave us
the names of the States in the Union. The
cystemty w Lich the children are taught
to read and cipher is not componed of
letters, as in olden tiraen, but by char
acters. One little boy was by this pro
ves preparing bis arithmetic lesson for
the next day. The boys and girl are
caught rnusic, there being a number of
latinos in the institution, each being in a
room by itnelf. Some of the little tots
voul J run ah ug the hallways and when
tJjey came to the room or stairs they
n phed to reach they would stop and
ro off, just as if they could see.
We were present at a cooking class;
e ( the girls, she could pee a little, lit
tkt? fire while another read how to make
oyster soup. The girls tucked up their
fr-keve". put on tfceir apron arid went to
the closets, took down the cooking uten
if, went to the sink f r water and from
Ihrf manner they went abo"t their work
it appeared scarcely possible we were
looking at blind people.
In another room was a sewing claes;
one of the girls was running a sewing
in icbine just as handily as if she could
pyc; another was making fancy penwipers
in the shape of flat candlesticks with the
candle in them. In this room we were
fiown a ladies' nightdress, which was
cut out by the teacher, made up by one
of the girls, the button-holes made by
another and the lace or edging, which
bad been made by another, was sewn on
ty her. The thing appeared such a curi
osity that we felt tempted to buy it. bat
n (rained from doing so an we thought it
might look suspicious carrying such an
flalr about in our satchel.
In addition to the school there is
trlat shop and broom factory, where all
the books used in the institution are
printed and many sold. About twenty
Sofn brooms are manufactured there
weekly, fora.l ot which they bavea'eady !
From what we saw of the institution,
the up nntendent and the teachers we

the menbers of the legislature would
visit the pi .ice. and if they did they wou'd
certainly not be nigeanlly in making a
proper appropriation for the running
expenses. We had almost forgotten the
Binning class, at which the teacher called
a young colored girl, whom we were in
formed had neither kith or kin to look
after her, to preside at the organ, which
she did with evident pleasure. The chil
dren answering to their names stepped
up and facing the audience, san. some
ctf them very sweetly; there was a chorus
with -vbintliug accompaniment which
appeared quite a favorite. One thing
truck us as being peculiar, and that was
to se little ornaments and picture on
the dressers and walls of the rooms. Tie
superintendent informed up that although
the children could not see them they took
great pride it knowicg they were there
and nothing gave them greater pleasure
thin to have some of the victors notice
and spenk of tbem.
Oar time wa too short to see much of
the Industrial School, but although too
late to see the boys in church we had
the pleasure of seeing them all march in,
some COO of thm. to supper, but before
then we had some conversation with Mr.
and Mrs. St. John, the superintendent
and matron, of the establishment. In
answer to our Inquiry as to how fce ob
tained control over so many unru'y
boys he said it was the easiest thing in
the world. The boys who entered saw
the other boys who were there before be
have well and they naturally followed
suit As an example, be told us that it
was seldom a new boy on entering his
otIi:e took his hat off, he never to'd the
boy to do so, but after a very short time
the boy, seeing the others took off their
hits off on entering, did the sam".
Again, the superintendent, who was for
merly a foreman in one of the shops, said
once, a new boy, upon entering refused to
go to work, be said all right, sit down
here by my denkt the boy d:d so for thut
day, but before the next was oyer he
nked to be put to work. He was told
oh no. you don't want to go to work,
but as Le begged so hard he was put to
work the next day and soon became niont
industrious. The superintendent in
formed us they kept to record bookn,
the conduct of the boys was known just
aw well a if there were not so many urnh
eied together. To a certnin extent, thin
is accouyted for by the cottage system
which is in vogue and I y this menus tb
family of each cottage or house is kept
good track of by the matrons. The
boys go to school half a day and work
the other half. All the clothes are mude
aud repaired, as well as the stockings,
etc., by the boys themselves. One hun
dred of the boy are employed attending
to the housework. Little l'ich'tte, f ooi
tbi place, who we had called up to the
otllce, is engaged in the laundry and was
as smiling as a boy well conld look and
be asked us to tell bis parents and friends
that he was well and happy. Tne beds,
udeed the whole houe, we only visited
the main building, is the quiutescence of
cleanliness and Mrs. St. John, the mat
ron, whom we should take to have a
wtet disposition, appeared to take as
much pride in ' her boys" as if they were
members of her own family. The boys
on Saturday afternoon, one hundred at
a time, have a bath, when they put ou
their cle a clothes for Sunday
The editor was much surprised at the
appearance of the place, be had supposed
there would be something of a prison
look about it, but found bis mistake on
approaching it; the roads leading to the
grounds, all of which are open with no
railing or wall, end in a circle, at the
far end of which is the maiu building, the
to tagis standing on tne sides ana look
like family residences
No dcubt, many persona have some
what the same idea as we had, suppos
ing the school would be something like a
prison, and consequently are very loath
to allow their unruly children to go to
the institution, to such we can only Bay
that from what we saw we believe that
it is just the place to send them and they
may feel assured that they can well leaye
the future of their boys, that ic, if tbej
cannot manage them at home, in the
hands of Mr. and Mrs. St. John.
The supper tables and the dining room
were beautuuuy clean, mere was
i n apple on each plate and apparently
plenty of bread and milk for each boy.
If this should reach the eyes of any of the
boys we trust they will do as the supur
visor asked them, which, as they will no
doubt remember, was to behave tbem
selves for mother and Jesus' sake and if
they do, then their stay at the school will
have been the best thing perhaps tbat
could haye happened tbem.

Very lHRlrult Tor Men Without Fir.t
Class Qualifications and Indorsements
to Secure an Appointment.
Washington. 'March 15. Sjcc1h1. 1 It
Is estimated Ly good authorities that there
are 20,000 applicants for the 288 consular
appointments within the gift of President
McKinley. From this it will be seen thiit
a very lare number of good men are doom
ed to disappointment. A jih-iiiIkt uf the
president's oUiciiil household, one of the
clerks, who has been in the White Houso
for many years, says the numlter of appli
cants for consulships this year exceeds any
thing ho has ever known. This is explain
ed In part by the fact that so many other
federal places have Uvn put under the
civil service rules, and also by the business
depression from which the country has suf
fered, the latter operating to bring into
coiuivtition for appointment to consu
lar places many business men who
have hitherto depended ujon themselves
for a livelihood and have scorned to seek
employment in the public service. Tho
idea of getting an appointment to a con
sular post i.s indeed a fascinatlngone. The
wonder is that there are not more candi
dates. Almost every man in tho country
possessing a fair education imagines he
would make a gtxxl consul, and as he nr.d
his family talk it over and picture to them
selves the delights of a foreign trip at the
cxpenso of tho government they grow very
enthusiastic atout it.
A lioscate View,
' Perhaps they have never been In Eu
rodo, and the prospect of a trip across the
ocean pleases them immensely. "We won't
haveouuch to do," says tho head of the
house, "and we can livo so much cheaper
over there, even if tho salary isn't very
largo." "Yes," says the wife, "and it
will 1)C such n good opportunity for the
children to learn French and German. And
we can take little trips around on tho con
tinent and seo everything that is to be
So they hunt tip the atlas and the guide
books, and the railway and steamer sched
ules, and map out their voyage and de
cide how much they are going to spend
and how much save, und have a real nice
time over it. Then tho head of tho house
and future consul stirs about and gets in
dorsements from politicians, and writes a

sentatives with v.-h' vi ): Ins more or less

ol the llr-t tliia.M the man who was rmiM-
tious cnoiih to put in liis application for
a 13,0'jO COM iulshlp discovers is that a
number of big politicians, men who have
claims upon the party and tho president,
are after it. Of course he is lost in the
sh utile. Th' more mode'st man, who goes
in for u littlo place, on the theory that
scarcely any one will Uither about that
and that he will therefore) have a cle?;r
oad, soon learns that for the minor con
sulships for all, in fact, paying less thun

It is not true, as many suppose, that the
consulships hive l.ven placed under civil
service laws. The civil service commission
has nothing to do with them. The presi
dent makes appointments of consuls new.
as lie always did, by nomination to the
senate, and l.is nominations must be con
firmed by that body. The civil service part
of tho business is a mere deviceJto iul.-:t
tho president in getting god -men. Can
didate's have to no examined by a board
omioscd of Judge John Davis, W. W.
llockhill, first assistant secretary of state,
and Hobert Chilton, chief of tho consular
bureau. Thiy submit to applicants a great
lot of questions, and make up a report to
the president. Tho president may be guid
ed by the eUimato which the examining
board puts upftn the candidates, or he may
not, just as ho chooses, liut so firmly has
the civil service spirit taken possession of
tho men who aro running the government
that tho president rarely makes consular
appointments except from the approved
list submitted by the boarel.
A Permaneut Consular Hvrvlce.
So it will be seen that political influence
alone is not enough to secure appointments
to thi? popular branch of the government
service. Another difficulty in the way is
the effort that is being made to imitate in
our consular service tho system which pre
vails In the English service and in that of
other first class nations. Once In tho con
sular and diplomatic service, always in it,
is tho rule with them. They promoto men
from place to place. Tho men who start in
as consular clerks often rise to the dignity
of ministers or even embassadors after they
have grown gray in the service. This
gives the government the benefit of trained
men. If training is a good thing In busi
ness, in mechanical pursuits, In the profes
sions, whv not in such an Important and
delicate function as that filled by a consul
or minister? There is as yet no law in this
country requiring consuls to be promoted,
but there is a gooel deal of that spirit, and
I understand that President McKinley sub
scribes to it. Uy law we have credited qulto
a number of consular clerks, whose em
ployment is made permanent during good
behavior, and this is the nucleus from
which it Is promised to build up a perma
nent consular system.
President McKinley, moreover, Is deter
mined to improve our consular service, and
he is very careful in his seiectlon of men.
He has an ambition to make his adminis
tration distinctively a business adminis
tration, and he has not overlooked the Im
portance of the consular system. He wants
men to go abroad who will not simply bo
idlers and society devours
All these things work together to hedge
the service about with conditions which
make it moro and more difficult for men
without first class qualifications and the
very best of Indorsements to secure ap
polntments to foreign posts. My advice to
the man who Is earning a living In hts
chosen profession or business Is to stick to
it and entertain no sweet dreams of what
he Is going to do when he is a consul of tho
United States in Germany or France or
some other delightful foreign country. It
will save a great dual of trouble and dis
appointment to let go of the scheme before
you take hold, as the Irishman would say.
