rsPECIAL COKKESPONDKNCtt OF THE BEB J
Every one knowing anything about ed
ucation realizes that the chief lactor in a
stood echool must be the teacher.
"Buildings, books, apparatus, attend
ance, length ol terms must be taken into
the account," says the state board, "but
they do not make a good school ; they
are utterly destitute of automatic power.
The teacher is the vital energy which sets
these all into useful motion. The teach
er may dispense with schoolhouaes, with
desks, with books, with everything ex
cept scholars, but the schoolhouse and
the books, and the whole machinery are
lifeless without the teacher. We were
therefore justified in saying, compelled to
say, that the results of education are a
measure of the teaching. This (suggests
that every school system should be or
ganized, primarily, with a view to secure
good teachers. This is the more impera
tive because the state has undertaken not
merely to open schools to which all par
ents may send their children, but has em
phatically and with penalties enjoined
upon all parents that they shall cause
their children to attend the school when
it is opened. This is an obligation upon
the parents ; there is a correlative obli
gation on the state to avoid waste of time
and energy, to provide good schools,
which means good teachers.'' O. O.
AT ST SOSE'S CHURCH.
AN ELOQUENT ADDRESS BY REV FATHER
A good sized audience was present at
St Hose's on Sunday night to listen to
the lecture by Father Smith, who spoke
eloquently and held the close attention
of bis hearers. He chose for the text of
bis discourse "The memory of Him shall
not pass away, and His name shall be in
request from generation to generation."
"St Patrick," said the speaker, was born
in France toward the close of the fourth
century., Nothing remarkable is re
corded of him until his 10th year, at
which time he was snatched from happy
childhood's home by a roving band of
marauders who carried him captive to
Ireland, where he was sold as a slave to
a petty chieftain. For six long years
did this unhappy youth, wo was raided
in luxury under the care of kind and in
dulgent parents, suffer the greatest hard
ships and privations. Abandoned by all
the world, happy necessity compelled
him to turn his thoughts to God. He
prayed to God and God heard hi prayer
and now the light of the Divine Spirit
beams upon his soul. By this light he
sees the vanity of all earthly things, by
it he learns that life is but the passage
to eternity, that the road to Heaven i
rough and rugged and those who wish
to euter there must follow the example
f Him whose life was sorrow and euf
fering. No longer did Patrick repine at
his miserable life, but added voluntary
privations and penances to the many and
-evere ones imposed upon him by his
cruel pagan masters. Often would he
prostrate himself on the wintry moun
lain and spend whole nights in commu
nion with his Lord. Had not Patrick
-uflered the privations of captivity at a a
ige when intercourse with the gay world
makes such an impression on the heart,
he too like many others might have
spent his life in the pursuit of ambition
and Ireland might have remained for
centuries unconverted to the faith of
Christ. At length Patrick was freed
from servitude. Admonished by God
he mde his way to the sea coast, where
he found a vessel bound for France.
Years pass by and we find our saint ap
proaching the shores of Ireland never to
eave until he has transformed and sub
jugated a nation which the Caesars with
all their power could not conquer, until
he had illumined by the golden rays of
Uivine truth a people long buried in
spiritual darkness. Consecrated bishop
nd commissioned by Pope Oelestine he
at once enters upon bis labors. He
goes from hut to hut, from castle to cas
tie, everywhere preaching Christ cruci
fied. His labors in every part of the
the kingdom were very fruitful, so
that in a short time the whole island
h loomed a fair garden for the Lord
Gratitude is a characteristic virtue of the
Irish race. The history of Ireland after
her conversion is a history of the triumph
oi unnstianty. lo-nient we or Irish de
scent long for the freedom of our be
loved and down-trodden iirin. we will
pray, my friends, most earnestly to Al
mighty God to lift the cloud that hangs
over our people ana country, so that in
a short time we' may realize our long
heart felt desire, that Ireland be granted
home rule. The greater our devotion to
nur faith the nearer we approach to St
Patrick. Appreciate your holjk faith,
love Its dogmas, proclaim its excellence,
practice its morals, inetil its principles
into the minds of yonr children. You

for you in Heaven; you are engaged id

THE OUB POWDER HpITaE.
One time honored relic here in Fair
field, yet escapes the Bacrificlal offering
to insatiate progress, the old powder
house, BtandlDg grimly alone, perched on
a rocky eminence, near the railway sta
tion, in easy view from the cars, yet suf
ficiently, out of the line of the track to
return a' defiant echo as the trains thun
der past, and the shrill whistle shrieking
among its walls like the ill-omened notes
of a bird of prey. The powder house
was built in the early days of the colo
nies, in accordance with a law compelling
each country town to have a magazine of
its own, and was a most substantial
structure. The huge stone, the sturdy
timbers, double compartment, iron doors
aud semi-gable roof, yet evincing unusu
al strength, as no mean style of architec
ture and ornamentation. The ground on
which it stands was in the year 1814,
years after it was built, that there might
be no question of its ownership, deeded
to the town by Levi Jennings in consid
eration, to use the words in the original
deed, "in the respect I have and bear
towards the inhabitants of Fairfield." It
is a most interesting relic ; not only in
itself as forming a picturesque and his
torical feature in New England land
scape fast disappearing, but as a souven
ir of a generous and public spirited
townsman, in the old times when it was
the fashion to acknowledge Providence
in the ruling of human affairs, when the
assertion of a Napoleon that "God was
on the side of the heaviest artillery" was
considered a blasphemous - effrontery,
prompted by Satan. -The powder house
recalls, the curious manner in which the
Puritan intermingled the spiritual and
earthly, but always exciting our respect
for reverent and honest purpose. For instance-the
celebrated command of Gen
Israel Putnam, "Trust in God and keep
your powder dry," and more pertinently
the indispensable requisite of captains in
the Pequot war, "They shall be freemen
supposed to be endued with faith in
Christ Jesus and who keep a sharp look-,
out for ammunition supplies." We trust
it may be long ere the ruthless ravages
of progress efface their memories. Let
the powder house be renovated and the
grand old relic rendered staunch and firm,
like its Puritan builders. Place within
its walls a warlike colonial trophy in
hape of six pounder cannon, and let our
boys blaze away with it every Fourth of
July, that a little old fashioned patriot
ism may make the hills echo, as in "The
good old times, "and ancestral pride stirr
ed up that shall be fostered and trans
mitted, as enduring as the foundation
rock of the powder bouse.
