It Is 'the erookedest river" iu the world, traveling 1,300 miles to cover the same ground that a crow would fly over iu (575. For several hundred miles It Is a mile in width. Rack In 18S2 It was seventy mile* wide wben the flood wns highest. The volume of water discharged by It into the sea is second only to the Amazon and ts greater than that of alt Kuropean rivers combined (omitting the Volga*. The amount Is estimated at i:»[) cubic miles annually-that is. It would All annually a tank 13!» mile* lontr, 139 miles wide and 139 nil lea high. With its tributaries it provide* somewhat more than 16,000 miles of navigable water, more than any other ayMem on the glnlie except the Ama zon and nmr* than enough to re.u-li from Ijike Superior to Paris by way of Kamchatka and Alaska, alwut three-fourths of the way around the globe. The sediment deposited Is 400, OOrt.ikVi tons, enough to require dally for its removal 500 trains of fifty care, each carrying fifty tons, and to make each year two square miles of new earth over a hundred feet deep The area which it drains Is roughly l,2."Mi#o square miles, or two fifths of the t'liited Slates. That is, Germany. Austria-Hungary, France and Italy could be set down within this area and there would still be some room to spare. It has the strength, for the most part put to no use whatever, of tXMXM).00fl horses.

Gaynor of New York, in reap pointing 10 members of the board of education Id that city, said a sensible and timely thing when he intimated that our pre&eni day public sciiool education may be "too fine" and too little adapted to the real needs of puiiils. That is to say. too much stress is laid upon tlie frills and too little upon the primary essentials. Wi have pupils cominir out of the puhiic schools who have a smattering of sciences and "accomplishments" which will never be of much service to them, while their spelling is poor, th^ir knowledge of ueoi*raphy va^ue, th' ir arithmetic weak, their grammer wabbly, their history inaccurate. The •'niceties and refinements," as Mayor Gaynor calls them, are all right In thf ir place, but they should come only after the solid things are taken care of." This seems so obvious to be axiomatic, but nevertheless it is tin faot tliat in our public schools it is frequently the other wayjabout. Edu cation is a precious boon, and it should not be a plaything of the fad dists. Given the proper foundation, there is no objection to the adding of ornamentation, if the indivdual pupil can stand it, but above all things the fundamentals mnst be cared for, as they are, after all, the things which will prove of greatest service. Gifted individuals deserve especial attention, no doubt, but in the lower grades the instruction should be of such character that every boy and girl who leaves school at ai early age, as most do, will be equipjjed with Uu things basically necessary for lifi'fr I struggles.
