iardly anybody pays the slightest at

I'hen another imotion to adjourn31. It is

hitherto voted against all such prop)o
uitions, moves to adljournu remarking
that lie Is not disposed to be kept there
ill night. Springer rises to propose
oume compromise, but McKenzIe, of
Kentucky, a burley, fellowv shouts,
'Sit. down, Bill," theure are eries of
"No," "No"' on the Democratic side,

about six hours in his chair, comes
down and stretches his legs, while one

crowded in the id(dle of the after

1113 FInST nATCH OF VICTIMS.
Thle House is in a good-natured nood,
and iml proves the slighte.-t op'ort unit y
for a lan glh. Each mhlemnber, as he is
arraigned at the bar, is asked by the
Speaker for his excuse. Then the
question is whether it shall be accept
ed. The Speaker puts it, there is a
taint "Aye," then i trehremndous "No."
A "division" is called for, whereupon
about everybody who just velled
''No" gets up and votes inl the afir1irma
tive. The farce is gone through with
over and over again, andl the members
seem never to lose their enjoymnent of
it. Singleton, of Illinois, had been
excused when his name was called on
account of liis age, but he comes of his
own accord, andc is in t very jovial
mood. 'le wears some remarkable
kind of a yellow-colored vest, and
feels an uncontrollablo iuptllse to use
his tongue, despite the fact that it has
grown rather thick. lie has a great
deal to say about the "unseasonable
hour"; he makes imnpossible motions
to excuse half a dozen niembers in a
bunch ; lie proposes that the House take
fifteen minutes "for repose"; lhe talks
about "tihe great principles of the
Democratic party"; he turns and
sharply says, ".Don't pull my coat
tails" to a colleague who seeks to re
press him ; amid whatever he says, he
sets the House and galleries inl a roar.
Steele, a queer old fellow from North
Carolina, fills up one of the intervals
with a recitation from Tarn O'Shanter.
From time to to time the sergeant
al-arms brings in a fresh invoice of
victi ns. Frost, of St. Louis, the
youngest menbe' of time Ilouse, is ar
raigned In the full evening dress which
'he had assumed for a dinner party, and
his aIppearance calls forth roars of
laughter. Later on Robeson, Tucker
and several others are brought in in
the same apparel, as they had been
(Iragged from the ex-secret.arv's hospi
t:able table. Tucker, who is always
running over with fun, feels jollier
than usual) and laughs "as though he
weould split," while Deuster, an lion
ost. Germanu ieIber fron Wisconsin,
tells how he went home because he
wanted to see his wife. Ileilman, a
fat Dutchman from Indiana, brings
down the House by renderinhg his ex
cuse in his native tongue. Everythim;
goes onm smoothly, save whent dluring a
roll-call Cotli oth, one of the Pennsyl
vania )emocrats who have beeu con
sistently voting against their party all
through this struggle, replies to a ti
rade 'of Blackburn's against the Speak
er. an1d the twvo men get to talking so
loudly that people in the galleries can
overhear stch words as "traitor" and
''liar," and look to see the difficulty
proceed from words to blows. Black
burn has apparently been drinking
ust enough to make him ugly, but
thomnas Turner plays the p)art of peace
maker and takes Cof'roth off.
The more moderate Democrats are
evide'tly sick of the farce, anid Tonm
Ewing doees inot hesitate to character
ize the questioii as "somewhiat frivo
lous." A t last the familiat' motion is
made again, amid the clerk calls the roll,
for the fifteenith timen during the ses
sion. One or twvo sleepy R<p.mblicans
vote with ths Democrats, ant it is car
rIed, 79 to 76. Most of the members
already have their o :ercoats on and
their hats ini their hands, when at a
quaterpas 12theSpeaker dieclaures
theHIouse adjourned, the rest rush for
the cloak-rooms, and5( within five mini
utes haull and galleries are emphty and
given over to the force of sweepers.
'The procession takes its war downm the
hill, out of the foul air In which many
members have staid1 almost constantly
for over twelve hout s, and into the
bracing air and bright moonlight of a
most b)eaut.iful niht. And so ther go
home wi th a disatreeable conviction
on thme part of a great many! that all
they have succeeded in doing~ has beoin
to make fools of themselves.'

A New Doparture ln the Style of Teaching
IFroln the Soutliern Edncnt+( nil Monthly.]
About flive ears ago, the school au
thoritics of Quincy, MAs$., placed the
the superintendence of the schools in
hands of Col. F. W. Parker, giving
him sbsolute control as to all inethods
and lnanner of teaching, Courses of
study, examinations, books to be used,
and appointmtetts and removal of
teaclers, and illing hin that he wouhl
be susta*ned 'n his efforts, and b e
work shouil be juIged1 by re-sults. In'
his selection of teachers ho Sou ;1ht
those who could do tore than siuply
hear lessons, atnd gave' themt thie samt1e
freedom as to use of mnethods, ways
and means that he enjoyed himuself.
No absoltto standards of results crip
pled their eflorts. Quality. not quan
tity, rea1l intoral developIueut. and the
at tainment of real skill were demanded.
TheII pr'incIipall wor'k of' the superlinlten- t*
dlent. was to. lnst ruct. his teachers by
lessous, leetutres, private interviews,
books, and hv teaching classes of chil
(iron in order to show how work
should be dne, his main effort being
to lead the teachers to unlerstatnd the
prineiples of teaching.
"''he individuality and freedom that
were secured to su perintenlent and ,
teachers w i- Sharedt by the pupils.
''hcy were ia"ght. to observe for them
selves, and t. express freely the resilts
o1 their ob :rvation. Pri'mary read
ing was first reformed by leadng the
pupils to the thought they were to ex
press, and next, to a correct expres
sion of it ' their range of reading Was
enlarged ly giving thiem at va'iety of
text-books, juvenile magazines, and
other imatter illn abundance. A ri thmne
tic was carefully and systematically
taught by the objective and inductive
method ; gramnar was not taught, from
the text-book, at least to s all chil
dren ; but training in correct language,
both spoken and written, was made
prominent at every step of the pupil's
progress. Geography was taught by
observing the fornsof nature inl the
vicinity, and by modeling with mold
er'S earth on a htorizonttal board. Pen
maes-ip and drawing received thor
ough and careful attention, from the
first step of the child's progress to the
last.. ''e children were taught to
observe, to.think, and to express their
thoughts,' and to use their hands ski -
"The results are good. The clil
dren learn to observe, to think, to talk,
to write. The principles and meth
ods used have been taught inl our nor
matl school these many years. There
is nothing specially new or original in
the work, but a sensible use of well
knownt principles and methods byi a
superintendent who has the power a'nd
the ability to adapt themit to the schools
of the town. Colonel Parker is doing
a good work, and is sustained by the
committee ill doing it; and the 1eople
have come to such a knowledge of the
results accomtplisied as to appreciate
the imlitdls aid the work of the super
