[Selections from Louisiana School Koview ] Parent, Child "The teacher cannot, and Teacher, say to the mother, 1 have no need of thee, nor the mother to the teacher, I have no need of thee ; for between them stands a little child asking for guidance along the path they have walked." There is no true school keeping until parent, child and teacher work together. The parent and teacher must understand the child and have a common purpose. The child's interests must be seen from the same view point and the cooperation of parent and teacher must be com plete. Too often there is an honest difference of opinion between teach er and parent. This is due to an absence of persoual acquaintance between thein ; a lack of familiarity with the aims of the teacher and work of the school ; the differences between the standard of the schools of the present as com pared with the schools of the past ; the conduct of former teachers; a disposition to "run things" on the part of both parent and teacher; and many other rea sons—all strongest arguments for co-operation of the closest charac ter between the three factors in every school. No teacher who stands off and defies his patrons can hope to do his duty by the children. The cold, selfish and bi goted should seek an occupation better suited to their capacity, and turn the work of teaching over to men an women of heart and brain. The teacher needs the good will of parents (not as dictators) but as co-operators for the best interests of the children, so that he may touch his pupils morally as well as intelligently. In this unity his own life becomes a part of theirs and he sets before them high ideals of character, making them feel the dignity and grandeur of a life whose highest achievement is not in accumulation but in service. To do this the help of parents is of absolute necessity, and is best accomplished when patron, child and teacher go hand in hand to gether up the steep but delightful ascent. Shndders it His Past. "I recall now with horror," says Mail Carrier Burnett Mann, of Le vanna, O., "my three years of suf fering from Kidney trouble. I was hardly ever free from dull aches or acute pains in my back. To stoop or lift mail sacks made me groan. I felt tired, worn out, abont ready to give up, when I began to use Electric Bitters, but six bottles completely cured me and made me feel like a new man."

The title "pro fessor" is applied to the entire list from the negro bangoist up to the occupant of the highest chair in the university. The cross-road teacher who teaches that the "earth is round, square or flat as the patrons wish," is dubbed "professor." He holds his head higher and thinks less (of everything but himself) on account of the titled honor. The true professor gets the same title, and has to endure the humiliation Let us call time on this much abused custom and learn to discriminate between day aud night. Plain mister will be more appropriate in 99 per cent of the cases where the title "professor" is now applied. In this connection we call attention to an ar ticle which appeared in the columns of "Harper's Weekly" on "Booker T. Washington and Tnskegee." The writer shows the high regard in which the "talented Booker" is held by the white people in the vicinity of his school*, and very humorously discusses the difficulties they find in determining the proper manner of addressing him. To call him mister would carfy with it a prob able recognition of social equality, and so it is frequently embarrassing to determine what address to nse and yet show proper respect for his character, work and worth. In the conversation reported, the gentle man discussing the results of the work done at Tnskegee said:— Now, when 1 meet the man who has done ali this, I cannot call him 'Booker,' like I would an ordinary nigger; bnt, thunder! I can't call a nigger 'Mr.', so 1 just say 'Pro f esso r.'

"The oil is being introduced for fuel in power plants as rapidly as it can be distributed by tank ears," said Mr. McDowell, to-night. "The Guffy Company has also built barges holding 3000 barrels, by which the distribution can be made to sugar plantations and the irrigat ing pump stations in the numerous rivers and bayous. The planters are alive to the situation and are clamoring for the oil as fast as the equipments can be furnished them, and they have its delivery assured. "Its introduction as a fuel will undoubtedly revolutionize the in dustries of the Mississippi valley, Southern Louisiana and (iulf of Mexico ports. Oil can be delivered at New < irleans and the lower Mis sissippi, at from sixty to sixty-five cents a barrel. It will require three and a half barrels to equal one ton of the best Pittsburg coal. The coal men can figure out the results. A majority of the sugar planters along the bayous have their coal supplies for the next season, but many of them are aleady making preparations for the use of oil, and I have no doubt it will be ex tensively used, as the planters ap preciate its advantages.

That ray of light has penetrated many darkened chambers where women moaned in mis cry, and has guided them out to health and happiness. "Favorite Prescription " is not a tonic, not a palliative, but a pos itive cure for the diseases which are peculiar to women. It >;ives vigor und vitality. It banishes nervousness, head ache, and all the aches which come from a diseased condition of the womanly organs. A temperance medicine, it con tains neither alcohol nor narcotics.

A DENIAL OF FREE SPEECH RESENTED Peace is the first law of social or der, aud we take second placo to no one in demanding its maintenance. There are many rights wa would rather forego than have them pre served by breaches of the public peace. But when pence officers themselves disturb the peace, by breaking up lawful and orderly public meetings without other war rant than their own whim-s, we un hesitatingly approve violeut resist ance. It is necessary to preserve the peace of vital social life, as dis tinguished from the peace that reigned at Warsaw. That is a revolutionary exotic; it is an Americau idea, inherited from the days of the Boston massacre. With satisfaction, therefore, we record the forcible and successful resistance in Detroit last week, by 10,000 citizeus, to an autocratic attempt of the police department to break up a lawful street meeting. These were the circumstances. Thomas Bawden has for four yours or more held meetings in one of the open spaces of Detroit, addres sing his auditors from a wagon. He is a single tax advocate, but his subject is not material to the main question. Many well-known men have been heard from Bawden's wagon, and no disorder has ever occurred. Whatever municipal re quirements there may be with ref erence to strpet meetings, he has evidently complied with, for his meetings have had the sanction of the city authorities. The first at tempt to break them up was that which provoked the resistance men tioned above. A "ripper" bill had been passed by the legislatnre. It is called "ripper" because it rips up local self-government and places a state police board above the city authorities in Detroit. This board determined to stop Bawden's meet ings. Not because they bad become disorderly, for they had not. Not because they were in violation of any city ordinance or state law, for they were not. But because the members of the police board did not like the sentiments of the speaker. Accordingly, without law ful warrant, without legal proceed ings of any kiud, but against the protests of the mayor aud as an act of naked power, the board caused Bawden's meeting on the 10th to be attacked by the police force aud driven from place to place. The police used their clubs, fired their guns, drenched the crowd with a hose, and charged it on horseback. In this charge men were run down, and two trampled upon aud their heads crushed by horses of the mounted police. This lawless breach of the public peace, for the purpose of suppressing lawful public speech, was bravely resisted by the crowd that had assembled, and the resis tance had the effect it deserved. The police board decided to leave the regulation of street meetings in future to the local authorities; and ou the 11th the mayor ad dressed a large crowd from Baw den's wagon, assuring the public that the local authorities had no intention or desire todnterfere with free speech. It is to be hoped that this affair in Detroit may serve as a wholesome check upon the dan gerons disposition of peace guar dians everywhere to «sake them selves peace disturbers. - - 77»« Pttblic.
