Educational. It is almost a universal practice with teachers to subject all their pupils to the same methods of instruction, and this without any other apparent reason than the adaptation of these methods to a majority of their pupils. In other words if a method of instruction is found to be successful with a greater portion of a class of reasonably bright boys and girls of which a majority of almost any school will be found to con sist, it fs applied vigorously to the whole class if not to the whole school. Now it very often happens that the boy whose intellect fails to be reached by this majority method is the real ge nius, the one who has faculties which if properly trained would place him head and shoulders above the rest of his class and it always happens that a child is especially adapted to some course of training which, if given him, will enable him to make the best possible use of his life. Many a boy has been through school and had his intellect so warped by im proper training that his own soul can hardly recognize it. He leaves college with A.B. or L.L.D. attached to hisall name perhaps, and plunges into some trade or profession that his father or some boyish fancy has selected for him, but finds after a hard and better fight With adverse circumstances that he is unfitted for his calling and trys another and another and continues trying till at last he finds he has made a failure of life and gives up discouraged, as noth ing else can discourage, often ending his life in an ignonimous death. Thou sands of as brilliant men as ever sat in the halls of Congress or graced our country's benches and pulpits have made such failures because of the mis understanding and mistraining of their faculties, and thousands more have on ly realized partial success for the same reason. One great object of education is to so train the mind that wheu the student enters the arena of active life he will be prepared to successfully cope with the many difficulties he is sure to meet, and make the best use of his natural endow ments, another is to develop to its ut most capacity for the enjoyment of the intellectual life. And there is no doubt that, under a system of instruction which would apply methods especially adapted to an individual mind to that mind and not indiscriminately to ail, a system that would develop the natural bent of the mind if it has any useful tendency, the faculties of the mind would be brought to tue highest degree of perfection and would be attended by far better results in actual life than they are under the present system. The laws regulating the development of the mind are as immutable as any of the laws of nature and it is only when we conform to them that we attain full intellectual growth. Blindlv stuffing the brains of a child with a promiscous mass of sciences and abstract rules without regard to these laws is as hurt ful as it is unreasonable. A course of training that would be necessary for a good physician or the president of a college would almost ut terly disqualify a man for successfull farming and vice versa, while the train ing of a dozen of our best colleges would be worse than wasted iu the attempt to make a professional man out of one who has no natural fitness for anything but oxdriving. A child whose talents are especially fitted for any trade or profession should be educated with that in view and not have its mind warped and dwarfed by studies and methods entirely foreign to its nature and which it can neither properly digest nor as similate. JERRY DYLLOBY. MINNESOTA NEWS. A sad and unfortunate accident be fel Mr. Baltice Hoffmann and family Sunday evening. Mr. Hoffman and family (consisting of wife and four children), accompanied by Matt Thei sen, were on their way to Gebhard Duerrenberger's, where they intended to spend Easter Monday. When about two miles from their destination, the wagon tipped over and spilled them down an embankment with the wagon on top. Mr. Hoffman had a leg broken above the ankle, his wife sustained a severe sprain of her foot, and their son, Anton, aged about fifteen months, was killed outright. The rest escaped with a few slight bruises. Mr. Theisen im mediately went for help and the unfort-' unates were taken to Mr. Duerrenber ger's, and Drs. Dodge of Le Sueur sum moned, who done all in their power to alleviate their sufferings.LE SUEI'R INDEPENDENT. Janesville was visited by a most destructive fire Tuesday evening. Two blocks of buildings were destroyed The following is a list of those suffering by the fire. The Johnson house, with most of its contents, Gorman's grocery, Gleeman's saloon, Donahue's North western hotel, McCabe's hotel, Dieu downe's machine and carriage shop," Guitflesch's tailor shop. Tyrholm's ma chine warehouse, Hogan's saloon and Jennison's lumber office and yard on the east side of the street were con sumed. The fire crossed over the tsreet and destroyad Britton & Davis1 machine warehouse, Jennison Bros' bank, Hallack's confectionery, Kruger's saloon, the Argus office, the postoffice, Ginger's saloon, Allyn's restaurant, Haggerty & Fitzgerald's saloon, a small building of unknown ownership and a portion of Baily & Watkin's hardware store. IJJ' What's in a name?well, if you ever buy any other than "Briar Pipe" smok ing tobacco, yoa will find out there is a good deal in the name "Briar Pipe.^^- Beautify the City by planting Shade trees. At a recent meeting of the board ef trade the undersigned were appointed a committee to urge upon the coun cil the necessity of ordering the plant ing of shade trees along the streets of the city. As the council is crowded with work at present,and as the time is short, they have decided to appeal to the citizens direct, and urge upon them the necessity of taking the long neg lected step.%Every one will admit that there is nothing which pleases a stran ger more when he arrives in a city, than to see the streets lined with beautiful trees. Aside from furnishing shade, the trees area protection against wind storms. To a certain extend they protect adjoining buildings from lightning, and in a town like eurs where so little is done to keep the dust down, they area partial protection against sand storms, such as.we have'to contend with during the summer. We earnestly hope that citizens who have not done so, will plant shade trees in front of their pro perty this month. The expense is trif ling compared with the benefits result ing therefrom. We hope that every citizen will consider it his duty to plant trees and that at once.Wm. Pfaender chairman, John Lind, C. H. Ross. R. Pfefferle, C. L. Roos. In a number of the neighboring towns, school boards have passed resolutions excluding children under six years of age from attendance at school. This is done on account of the overcrowded condition of their schools. Mr.' A. C. Church, formerly head miller of the Eagle Mill, was in town Sunday and Monday visiting with his many friends. Valuable prizes will be raffled out at the fair to be held at 'Iurner Hall, May 7th arid 8th. Don't fail to secure your tickets. Lost, slrnyed or stolen, a silk hat (commonly called a plug). A hand some reward for its recovery is 'offered by Albert Seiter. New Ulm rustled for a $10,000 bonus for securing the location of the soldiers home, last week. Other towns of the state have taken similar action. If the location of State institutions is to be made on a cash basis, and irrespective of other advantages, the legislature should provide for knocking down the entire control of these institutions to the highe-t bidder.REDWOOD GA- ZETTE. Sigel Items. Our farmers are done with seeding by this iime and their expectation next in order is that of favorable weather to follow. Mr. Mich. Thomas was called to Mankato last Saturday night to the bed side of his dying mother, Mrs. Gates Tiioruas. Mr. Geo. P. Dielz'of New Ulm visi ted this town lately, looking after his farming interests in this locality. Geo. also took the opportunity of calling on some of his former country friends, who met him with a hearty welcome. By the way preparations are made in silence it. sesnis as though young par ties of this and of a neighboring town were about to enter into a co-partner ship, we mean into a nuptial state. As prospects seem -quite favorable, let us hope to witness the occasion in its grandest style. To congratulate at present, however, we should consider somewhat premature. POWDER Absolutely Pure.
