''Our society is well represented,"
said Mr. Sherrard, "and was strong'y
n evidence. The treatment accorded
us was in marked contrast to that
which we received in the early yesis of
ur work, when coming in contact
with eastern representatives of orphan
"At tbe recent meeting at Washing
ton there was only one trend of
thought, and that was in behalf of the
family home for normal children.
'I fired one shot at New York by
introducing a resolution condemning
the state subsidation of private chari
ties, but under the rules it weut to the
committee on resolutions without de
bate, and that was tbe last heard of it.
But I gained my purpose in getting it
in tbe papers. New York institutions
draw over three millions annually
from the state and city municipal
treasuries. Mr. Dresser, editor of the
Delineator,came to me afterwards and
said he was in heartv accord with
child labor committee have
now a bill in congress providing
amongst other things for the registra
tion of births and other matters per
taining to the condition of children.
When Senator Pettigrew was in "the
senate he introduced a similar bill at
my suggestion, bnt it was killed in tbe
"As you will see by the repcrt of the
oinmittee on resolutions, congress will
be asked to estsblish a children's ba
teau. This will be very desirable and
with tbe influence of the president
will no doubt pass.
"On the whole, the meating was one
of historic interest, as it inarkB tbe
time whemthe nation gives evidence of
waking up to tbe needs of children."
THE COLLEGE BOY
Hard Work and Not Too
Many Luxuries the
New York Times. Mr. Harriman's
opinion as to the conditions under
which a college man will get on in
railroading is very much the same as
that of most successful men regarding
college men in their special calling
The great railroad administrator and
organizer inevitably lays great stress
on the moral rather than intellectual
qualities of the man under discussion.
It is the "stick to it spirit" that cai
lies one through But also it is to be
remembered that it is this spirit that
carries a boy through college with the
best results The one who is endowed
with it is not necessarily or generally
fair representative of college train
ing, for that training does alot more
iLi him than it does for his chum who
may lack in perseverance
Tue truth is that there is such
variety in boys at college and such a
variety in the colleges, that any gen
eralization is defective One thing
hownver, is indicated in Mr. Harri
man's shrewd commentary. It is that
tbe boy in college who has to work
hard in order to get. on has in the
very limitations of his career, real and
valuable advantage ever those in easier
circumstances. Whether he be poor,
or only a little dull, if he is forced to
put his whole strength into his efforts,
thej- gradually and almost unconscious
ly build up in him a capacity for work
taat is more precious than any othei
quality in after life. And this fact
again suggests that in public provision
for the so-called higher education it if
quite possible to make it too cheap and
too facile. Beyond tbe sound elemen
tary schooling to which every child is
in a sense entitled for the protection of
the community, it is a sound doctriue
that education will be more justly val
ued by him tfho gets it if it costs
something of effort and self-denial.
