So often has (t been charged tbat tba pnblie schools foros too many and too diftionlt tasks upon the pa piis that any contrary statement Is read with surprise. . Tbe retiring president oi the National Education Association recently expressed bis disagreement with the prevailing view when he said that the fsult too eoiu toon in many of the beet schools is that of making the way too easy for the child. He feared that "such made easy and rapid transit math, ods" wonld produce "a crop of Intel lectnally spoiled children, flabby of mind, weak of will, superficial in oharaoter. Inaccurate in scholarship, doing nothing well except what they like to do." He urged that they should be trained to do whatever it ia their duty to do, wbetber it is pleasant or not, and that the accom plishment of the needed work should provide snrflclent Joy. This is wholesome doctrine to preach to young persons, and to those who are engaged in training the young. It applies to parents, as well as tu mare formal teachers. Many a parent who has struggled to overcome early obstacles resolves to save his children the hardships of bis own youth. The children thus trained bring forth other children who usually go to the dogs. The rule to find out what a boy likes to do and let him do that Is good, provided, In adlilion, you Qud nut what ha doos not like to do aud make him do that also.

Explosibility of Coal Dust MORE DANOKROUS THAN FIR DAMP Coal (Inst is now generally recog nized as an explosive mors danger ous and deadly than fire damp. Fire drtrip gives its own warning the -ap" in the safety lump but ooal dust does not attract attention unless it is present in tbe mine In large quantities Fire damp da generally . local in its occurence, and the effect ot its explosion, though terrlflo, Is al no local , but in a dry mine Coal, dost is everywhere, and its explosion and combustion may affect miles of rooms and entries and may even destroy EtruAures at the entrance to the mine. The fact that coal dust is a danger ous explosive was not generally reo ognied until very recently. Alter the great explosion in the Pocahon tas coal mine, In West Virginia, In 1884, by which 114 men were killed,., a committee was appointed by the American Institute of Mining Engin eers to determine the cause of the explosion. Tbis committee reported tbat "no trace of the firs damp, waa discovered" and that "the explosion was due mainly to dust," ignited,.' perhaps, by a blast. Later explos ions, in the West, in mines oommou ly free from firedamp, were mani festly explosions of ooal dust. IT SAVED HIS LEG "All thuught I'd lose my leg,' writes J.
