number of years \.;.h educational reforms.
especially with the work of ih. Detroit Sch 1
which lias hitherto attended our efforts
toward the development of a rational
and scientific educational system. A
liiit. .1 colli ge professor laments the
fact "pupils' minds do not grow as
thej Bhould under processes of educa
tion, that the poverty of thinking pow
er is deplorable, and that young peo
ple end their studies with flabby
minds, unable t.. analyze keenly or to
generalize truthfully, er far." Although
these observations refer to that aspect
of the school question as reflected in
college work, slill it is plain that the
evils complained of are the direct re
sults of seeds sown during the earlier
ages of tl.e student's life. If the habits
of Inattention, sloth, and mental and
moral slovenliness are formed in the
home, and in the primary grades, il"
through the environment of the moth
er, or the ignorance of the teacher, in
ordinate selfishness, untruthfulness.
lack of self-control and a disregard for
the rights and feelings of others, are
systematically encouraged during the
earlier an.l more impressionable years,
of the child's exist, ree. we may scarce
ly hop- that a miracle will supervene.,
or that he will not carry Into after
life the evil results of his earlier tute
lage. That lli.se evils are carried for
ward Into college life is shown by the
professor quoted above, who declare,.
that a majority of our students, even
at maturity, are distressingly lacking
ln moral enthusiasm. "Tliey unduly

sense' of justice is lax. Great prin
ciples ai'. l great causes fail to appeal

and they care t.... little about highest
things."
Man> 1- . lis Observed.
Whi ii we carefully consider the con
dition of our primary and secondary
schools, we shall, I think, begin to re
alize the source whence have proceed
ed ntany of the evils observed in the
higher grades of educational work; yet,
we must probe even deeper than this
before we reach the true cause of the
mental and moral defects exhibited in
the I'fe and character of the present
j.-.. neration.
It is impossible, in a newspaper ar
ticle, to do more than touch on a few
of the • vils undt riving our present ed
ucational system, while to suggest a
remedy is a still more difficult task,
lt Is reasonable to suppose, however,
that in order to warrant a fair degree
of success, our efforts should begin
with the rarllest years of the child's
life. "Mothers, togther .with the teach
ers employed in primary and intermedi
ate grades of school work, have charge
of the youth throughout the first
twelve or fourteen years of its exist
ence, during which time Its mind re
ceives its most vivid and lasting Im
pression. It is at this time that habits
are formed which no subsequent train
ing can eradicate. It is plain, there
fore, that if reform ls meant, mothers
must be awakened to action, and those
of them who, through poverty of ig
norance, ure unable to perform th^ir
duty to their children, must be given
practical Instruction along these lines.
The intelligent women of our country
must arouse themselves to the import
ance of this work.
Tint a Political Movemeiil.
If lt Is observed that many mothers
are unprepared to fulfill their natural
obligations to their children, and hence
to society, it is also true that a great
number of teachers are deficient in the
first principles necessary in their call
ing. When he considers the importance
of correct training during the earliest
years of the child's life, lt Is plain that
the intelligent Interest of mothers and
teachers must be enlisted ar.d their co
operation secured. I know no better
way to accomplish this than through
the agency of the school itself.
The object of the movement inaug
urated In Detroit more than a year
ago was to arouse within mothers and
teachers a deeper interest ln education
al subjects, and to furnish a stimulus
to self-improvement, especially along
those lines which would benefit them
for their respective duties. Although
It was known that the combined force
of nineteen or twenty thousand wom<_n
would exercise fi liowerful influence in
school matters, still it was not in any
sense a political movement.
So soon as the originators of the
plan had decided that lt was feasible,
they conferred with a dozen or fifteen
ether women, who at once signified
their willingness to aid in the organiza
tion of a society to be known as tht
Detroit Education union. After a se
ries of meetings had been held, a plan
was formulated which was as fn Hows:
It was proposed to organize a league
in each school district of the city, of
which, every woman within it, re
gardless of creed, color, nationality, or
environment, should be asked to be
come a member, lt was decided to
have the meetings of this.' leagtu s held
in tlic scheol buildings, once every
month, after the regular school work
for the day was over. At these meet
ings (prestd .1 over hy a regularly elect
ed president, usually the principal of
the school), there were to be free dis
c-iu-sions among mothers and teachers
upon topics best suited to aid in the
proper development of child-life. Al
though the \v„rk of the local leagues
wus to he determined by the neighlx.r
hood ne, ds and peculiarities, each hav
ing the largest freedom, still ihe central
union prepared a syllabus in which a
genera) outline of work was laid out. j
lr, these syllabi which were printed j
and distributed among the mothers, j
were suggested such topics as the fol
lowing: Proper food and clothing for
children; care of the body; cleanliness; ,
the way to prevent the formation of |
injurious habits; the rights of children;
proper reading in the home: how to •
i.ach children self-control, and to have !
a proper regard for the rights of others; i
the duties of true citizenship, and var- j
lous oilier subjects intended to be tak- I
in up l.y mothers in the house. Thej
next syllabus was to deal more directly
wiih the school.
Enlisting All Mothers.
Scarcely wore these leagues formed i
than a movement was started to can- j
vass each district. This was not a
union. She is also the author of the book
entitled. "The Gcd Idea." hi which she has
traced the effect that each of the two forces,
maie and female has had on the present de
velopment of our i-lea of the Deity.
difficult task, and at every meeting the
willing vn ices of mothers and teachers
re-echoed ihe sentiments of the ori
ginators of the plan, namely: That lt is
the next step in educational processes.
In view of the numerous inquiries
which are still being made concern
ing this work, ii may not be unwise
t.> add a few details to this general
explanation. .The Detroit, union was an
organized body having a" president,
vice i'resident, corresponding secretary,
recording secretary, treasurer, and
five executive officers. Each district
league had also a regularly elected
president, vice president and secretary,
each of whom became an ex-officio I
member of the central union. One, and
in many cases, two, of these officers
were patrons of the school, the remain
ing one or ones being teachers.
Whenever a meeting of the league
was to be called the principal of the
district dictated an invitation to the
mothers, requesting their presence at
the schoo] on a certain day. These in
vitations were written by the pupils—
"the principal, on the same day, noti
fying the committe on leagues of the
proposed meeting. It was the duty of
the members of this committee either
to be present themselves or to send
competent persons to assist the prin
cipal in the work of organizing. It was
deemed absolutely necessary to the
success of the first meeting that the
objects and aims of the proposed move
ment be intelligently stated by persons
having sufficient enthusiasm to eniist
the sympathies of those present.
In Detroit thirty-seven districts were
organized. If the entire sixty-five
ha ants could have been formed and
conducted after the original plan, I
doubt not that within three or four
months the average membership would
have reached three hundred, each and
all of whom would have been actively
engaged in practical educational work.
These Women would have been enlist
ed in a movement which has not so
much to do with books and regularly
formulated methods, as with actual ex
perimental processes of child-culture,
or character-building.
Large Results for Good.
Were such a unified plan of educa
tion carried out in every city and town
is the country; were parents and teach
ers generally enlisted in a movement
involving practical principles of ethics,
of true citizenship, and a higher stand
ard of living "and thinking, the results
for good can scarcely be estimated.
At the present time T know of only
one obstacle in the way of the success
of this movement. Ir. cases where
school boards are largely made up of
men who are wholly without knowl
edge of or interest in educational sub
jects, and who are actuated only by
political motives, any and all sugges
tions which are liable to interfere with
their own plans are apt to be viewed
with distrust and alarm. The number
of letters, however, which have been
received from superintendents and
members of school boards, indorsing
this movement would seem to indicate
f.iat the above named conditions are
unusual, and that in most cities the co
operation of teachers and parents is
regarded as a desirable step toward
educational reform.

If a Chinaman, usually regarded by us as
a barbarian, cau live to a healthy, hale old
age, why cannot Americans, with their
more advanced civilization, do the same?
The reporters discovered during Li Hung
Chang's stay in this country, that he took
every thought for his health. He lived
upon the simplest of diets and never passed
a day without consulting his physician.
He limited his toil to a reasonable number
of hours, and would not dev-fete from his
rule in this matter. Americau men follow
just the opposite practice. They work to
the limit of endurance, will not even take
the proper time for eating, resting and
sleeping, and never think of their health
until it is gone. There is a wonderful med
icine- for hard-working men. It is Dr.
Pierces Golden Medical Discovery. It
takes the place of a physician. It keeps
away ill-health and restores health when it
is lost. It is the great appetite sharpener,
blood-maker and flesh-builder. It makes
tbe digestion perfect, the liver active and

STOLE VALUABLE RELICS
MINNESOTA HISTORICAL SOCIETY
SUFFERS A LOSS
Some One Grea!..-. .Into a Case o_f Cu
rios, and Decamp.* 'With a Number
of Valuable ArtieleH Ancient
Pipe of "Hole-ln-tlie-Dny'> aud a
Number of Rare Coins Are Among
tbe >11«.«.in._,.
Some time last week one of the glass cases
in the rooms of the Minnesota Historical so
ciety was broken into and several Minnesota
relics, which money could not buy, owing to
their close connection with the history of the
state, were taken.
Among the articles missing ls the pipe of
old man "Hole-ln-the-Day" and a dozen or
more coins, Including a very rare Turkish
coin. Besides these there are a half-dozen
boxes missing, which contained many valuable
relics.
The only e'.uc left by the vandal which
might lead to his conviction is a set of very
distinct finger maris on one of the shelves of
the case. The work was very neatly exe
cuted. The case is locked with a Yale lock,
and to all appearances is burglar proof.
A year ago a similar robbery occurred, when
the same case was broken Into, and articles
of much the same nature taken, which has
lead the Historical society people to beiieve
that the same party vandalized the society's
treasures on both occasions.
Tlie society, after the fiist robbery, put an
additional safeguard against burglary on the
case. Owing to trouble caused in opening
the case, as people were constantly asking to
see some of the relics on its shelves, the ad
ditional lock was removed.
The discovery of the theft might not
have been made for several days had it not
been for the chisel marks on the door, and
the splinters which covered the floor in the
j vicinity.
An inventory will be taken of the case to
morrow, when it will be determined just
what is missing.
Mr. Kingsley. the secretary of the society,
was highly indignant over the robbery yes
terday.
"Any one who would steal from an instl
i tution of this kind," said he to a reporter
of The Globe, "would steal from a church.
I Some erf the relics ln that case could not ba
! bought for money. Especially the pipe of
I 'Hole ln the Day.' You will remember that
it was his son who tried to get the Sioux
Indians to join the Chippewas in the New
Ulm massacre. Of course, I could not say
just what value would be placed upon the
coins, and we cannot tell what has been tak
en until next week."
Mr. Kingsley further stated that he had
informed all the local dealers ln coins of the
robbery, but he was of the opinion that the
theft was that of some coin and relic col
lector.
He had not thought it worth while to notify
the police, because he did not think any
effort would be made to dispose of the
curios.
To insure the society from further losses
of this kind, additional locks will be put on
the cases. It is not improbable that the
theft occurred during the noon hour, while
nearly all of the officers of the society were
at lunch.
Several years ago a prominent Minneapolis
attorney was caught cutting lhe newspaper
files, and since that time every one has been
excluded from the flle room.

RUN DOWN BY A TRAIN.
Artbnr D_.ler_.oi_ Seriously Injured
on tbe Track* I nder the Dale
Street Bridffe.
Arthur Dzierzon, the eleven-year-old
son of Frank Dzierzon, a shoemaker In
the employ of Foot, Schultz & Co., liv
ing at 605 Blair street, was run down
by a train under the Dale street bridge
yesterday afternoon and frightfully in
jured.
The boy's skull was badly fractured
and the left arm broken and crushed
so that it was necessary to amputate
the member at the shoulder. Three
Inches of bone were removed from the
lad's skull and a trepanning operation
performed ln hopes that his life might
be saved.
Last evening the little fellow was
resting as comfortably as possible un
der the circumstances at the city hos
pital, and the physicians say that If
no internal injuries or other complica
tions develop he will likely recover.
Little is known as to how the acci
dent happened, as the first known of
lt was when the Injured boy was found
unconscious under the bridge shortly
after 2 o'clock. It is supposed that he
was either walking along or playing
on the tracks when a passing train
struck him. The boy was hurt on the
Great Northern roadway, but by what
train is unknown, as the Omaha and
Burlington roads use this route.
