"EXCEPTIONAL" CHILDREN. .Public Attention Ought to Be iDirected - to All Types. "It ia often the exceptionally' Wight (child, even the genius, Whom we. find on (the wrong aide," says Pr. Maiximilian (IV E. Grosxmann, discussing the- educa tion of exceptional children in the an tnual report of the United States Oom iimissioner of Education, just issued. '"The stupid and weak-minded criminal lis not as dangerous as the clever and (intellectual criminal." ; Dr. Groszmann urges that public at tention be directed to a'Jl types of ex- feeble-minded and degenerates, who, no matter how undesirable a factor they may be in society, are 'by no means the 'whole problem. He points out that the 'problem of the exceptional ehiM is by 'no means merely the problem of the "de fective,' or the sub-normal," or the "ab 'tiormal" child. Often it is a case of misdirected ability on the part of ft 'gifted mindj or the protection of child growth and development failure, due to improper vocational education; or it may be a problem arising from racial differences, together with the difficulties of social adjustment in a nation which has grown through immigration. Real progress, particularly ' in distin guishing between the various types of exceptional children, is report ed by Ir. Groszmann. He consider t.Ve great (Sson of the year to be the nenl for in telligent, united effort on the part of educators, medical men, social workers, oharity organizations, welfare s.vieties, juvenile courts and other agenehw that aiave been active in the endeavor to rem edy earlv neglect of exceptional rendi tions. His point is that each of these separate agencies is doing commemdable work, but that they muM now , join forets. Dr. Groszmann asks compulsory edu cation for all children, 'excejrtionar' as well a others. He contends that it is a. mistake to exempt the exceptional child from the compulsory law. He de clares: "The very children wlio need special attention and who may becomo burdens and dangers to society are de pendent for their education, special training, and custody upon the good will, of thenr parents. Who are often enough disinclined to follow the right course.) AVa need legislation which would etab-, lish the right of the commonwealth to j direct the education and training of every child, and which would secure Ao the state and municipality an au thority which can not 'he superseded by parental prejudices. We also need leg islation which would establish cuch ft. (board or boards as can regulate and de- I termine the disposition which is to l made of every child according to his need and the good of the community." FLUORSPAR BREAKS RECORD. Quantity Mined in 1912 Largest in His tory of Industry. All record for the amount of fluorspar produced in the United States were brok en in 1912, when 99,28.") short tons of domestic gravel spar, valued at $."78.294. were marketed, compared with 69,825 short tons, valued at $420,932, in 1911, the previous largest production in the history of the industry. The total quan tity" domestic fluorspar reported to the United States geological survey as marketed in 1912 was 116.545 short tons, .valued at $769,163, compared with 87.048 short tons, valued at $611,447, marketed in 1911. Fluorspar was produced in 1912 in five states, Illinois, Kentucky, Colorado, Xew ! SLIP-ON !

Hampshire, and New Mexico, in the or der named. Newly discovered fluorspar veins are reported near Dutlields, Jef ferson, Morrison, and Wagon Wheel Gap, Col., and a small quantity was produced at the first three of these localities. The year 1912 showed a considerable decrease in the importation of fluorspar, the imports being 26,178 short tons, val ued at $71,616, against 32,674 short tons, valued at $80,616. in 1911. While the average cost to the consumer of for eign fluorspar . in 1912 was $5.74, in cluding duty, but excluding freight charges, the: cost of the domestic spar was $5.82: yiet notwithstanding this dif ference and' the considerably higher freight chafes on domestic spar to points whene it is consumert than on foreign spar from the docks to the east ern steel plants, the imports decreased and the domestic production increased. This was probably due mainly to the fact that the new mills in southern Ill inois are putting on the market a high er and more uniform gTade of spar than can be obtained by importation, and as fluorspar is largely sold on its percentage of purity, purchasers find that the purer spar is more efficient and consequently cheaper in the end. Fluorspar is used in the manufacture of glass and of enameled and sanitary ware, the electrolytic refining of anti mony and lead, the production of alumi num, the manufacture of hydrofluoric acid, and as a flux in blast furnaces and jn basic open-hearth steel furnaces. It is estimated that about eighty per cent.' of the American fluorspar output, mainfly in the form of gravel spar, is consumed in the manufacture of basic open-Jhearth steel. The uRe of fluorspar is increasing in practically all these in dustries. The report on the production of fluor spar and cryolite in 1912, by Ernest F. Burchard, has just been issued by the geological survey, and a copy may be obtained on application to the director at .Washington, D. C. LARGE COKE PRODUCTION. More'Than 2,500,000 Tons Manufactured in Indiana in 1912. The production of coke in Indiana in 1912 amounted to 2,616.339 short tons, valued at $12..r28,685. The yield of coal in coke was the highest attained in the United States, 81.8 per cent., according to K. W. Parker of the United States geological survey. With the completion and putting in operation of the 560 Koppers ovens by the United States Steel corporation at Gary, Indiana, in 1912 advanced to third place among the coke-producing states, displacing West Virginia, Illinois and Colorado. Indiana's production in 1912 exceeded that of West Virginia by about 150,000 tons, and was only about' 360,000 tons less than that of Alabama. It is probable that within two years, if not in 1913, Indiana will supplant Alabama as the second coke state, as at the close of 1912 there were 160 retort ovens in course of construction. In addition to the ovems at Gary there were 50 United Otto ovens operated by the Citizens Gas Co.. at Indianapolis, and during the year 22 Klonne ovens were completed by the Central Indiana Gas Co., at Muncie. As the names of these operating companies indicate, the gas from the plants is fur nished to the city mains. The Klonne ovens are heated by producer gas made from the coke in producers in front of and below the ovens. Gas coal from Yraighiogheny, Pa., is used in the ovens and the coke is marketed for domestic consumption. The coal used at Gary and at Indianapolis is chiefly from West Virginia.

The production of sulphur in the Lnit(i States in 1912 was 303.472 lonfr tons, valued at $5.2.'xi,422. compared with 2(J5.H(U lonff tons, valued at $4.7S7,04S). in 1011, arcording to W. C.

Iat 12 vears the growth of the sulphur industry in the I'nited .States has been phenomenal, and ine lust seven vears htm seen the dethrone ment of Sicily from the dominating po sition she so long held in the world's sulphur market. Within this period the I'nited States has advanced from the position of an unimportant producer to tbat of one of tne two leading sulphur producers of the world, owing entirely to the development of the sulphur de posits in Louisiana. In 19(K) the sul phur production of tne L nitea states amounted to 3.147 tons: the imports during that year were l7,nl)(l tons, of u Inch 106,825 tons were classified as crude sulphur chiefly from Sicily.

Moreover, the imports of sul phur from Italy were only 8.7 per cent, of the total importation, and Japan was, the leading exporter of sulphur into the United States, 91 per cent, of ta for eign sulphur admitted having come from that country. It seems safe to predict that with the completion of the Pan ama canal, United States sulphur may practically displace foreign sulphur ou the Pacific coast. An advance chapter on sulphur for 1912, just issued by the geological sur vey, includes detailed descriptions of thei sulphur industry in Louisiana, as carried on by the L nion Sulphur to. and an outline of the extensions of the com pany' in Europe. An account of the beginning of the operations of the Free port Sulphur Co. at Kreeport, near Bryan Heights, Brar.oria- county, Tex., is also included. This company began opera tions in November, 1912, when an initial run was made. The sulphur is to be' obtained by a process similar to that employed in Louisiana that is, it will be melted underground and pumped to the surface by means of an air lift. In Nevada the" sulphur comes from the. town of Sulphur, in Humboldt county. The Wyoming product comes from the Thermo'polis district. A new deposit in Wyoming is located in Park county, 12 miles south of the deposits in Sun light llasin.
