A COSMOPOLITAN 6CHOOL,
A Queer Miztnrn f Chlhlre-n In One cf
New York's It 1 1; K hool ItuittliiiKa.
Until nliout a year ago t lie principal
of ward bcIkkjI No. 2:, New York, did
not realize what a queer lot of pupils lie
had, although he had noini'tiines laughed
over the Kt range collection of names
nxn the rolls. A year ago he took a
census and carefully traced out the
exact part of the earth from which the
parents of each of hi pupils had come,
lie found that there were in his school
no less than twenty-neven' different na
tionalities, FjK'aking about twenty-fivie .
languages other than English and ifs
dialects. lit) found that of these sixteen
were in the primary department alone.
So not long afterward he "arranged a
novel feature to one of the school enter
tainments. At a certain place in the
programme each child aro.se, holding
in his or her hands two flags. One was
the American Hag, the other the flag of
the nation from which the father had
cojne. The visitors to the school were
astonished. They recognized half a
dozen flags well known as the banners
of European nations Italian, German,
Spanish, French, Swiss and the like.
Then they saw nearly a dozen others,
recognizable from their shapes and colors
and designs s the banners of barbaric
or Bemibarbaric countries, known to us
in a vague way as heathen.
When these children, none being un
der five years of age, first come to this
school they are foreigners to the very
core. They speak the language of their
fathers, and perhaps have never even
heard the sound of an English word;
They are of the country from which
their parents came both in customs and
ideas. Their clothing alone bears the
stamp of America, and that so out of ac
cord with their faces and expressions
that they seem ill at ease, and even more
poorly clad than they really are. They
enter the primary department.' And
here it may lie said that, although the
youngest are five pears old, the ages of
many extend upward toward eighteen
and twenty years.
It is the 1 ,iness of Miss Rose O'Neill
and her seven assistants to teach these
children the English language; and then
to make American children out of them.
(3o into the -school at the beginning -of
the school year, and you will tldnk the
task hopeless,- impossible. Come liack
at . the "end of six months, and if? you
close your eyes and listen to the reading
exercises you will not be able to dis
tinguish Chinese child or Arab child or
Tunisian child from the' few pure blood
ed 'Americans who form the curiosities
of the school. Then you will wonder
how the miracle has been performed.
Harper's Weekly. , .
Educate Children to High Ideals.
We are too ready to impart instruc
tion to children from low moods and on
a low plane, because we do not ourselves
habitually dwell in the latitude of the
uplands. . Motives of nolicy, of vanity,
of seeming instead of being right, enter
into our own lives and, alas! poison the
lives of the little ones at the fountain.
A grand life, a brave example, a splen
did instance of fortitude, of self abnega
tion, of courage against odds is never in
vain. It is an object lesson that flames
out from the 6ky, as the planet amid the
host of lesser stars. Whether it be an
arctic or an African explorer, the leader
of a forlorn hope, the missionary living
among the island lepers, or the army
nurse, leaving home and luxury to min
ister to the wounded and soothe the
dying', the noble ideal is uplifted before
the eyes of those who are yet in the in
itial stages, and whose characters are
not yet iff the mold of destiny.
This thought of the lofty ideal gives
the chief value of our annual Decoration
Day, giving us pause amid the pomp and
ease of peace, that we may think not of
the pageantry of war, but of its suffer
ings, its fever and thirst, its rigors of
cold and furnace heats, its weary
marches, fierce battles and the patriot
ism which alone condones its bitter woe
and the mourning that follows in its
track. Harper's Bazar.
Powerful Indian Air Guns.
The Indians along the Mirida river
hunt with blow guns made out of the
young stalks of a. certain kind of palm,
from which the pith is removed. The
arrows employed as projectiles are sim
ply splinters of reed, sharpened at one
end, the other end being wrapped with
enough silk cotton obtained from another
kind of palm to fill up the bore of the
blow gun. The arrows are about ten
inches long and very light. They are
tipped with the famous and deadly
Used by one of these naked savages
the blow gun is a weapon of great accu
racy and effectiveness, even a small bird

skilled shooter with reasonable certainty

A Carious Salvage Case.
Perhaps the most curious salvage case
on record is that of the ship Two Friends,
which stranded on the coast of Cuba and
was abandoned by her crew. Another
ship, the John Blake, met a similar fate,
and her crew, in attempting to find a
landing place, came across the Two
Friends, which they managed to get off
and to navigate to England without fur
ther mishap. The judge who tried the
case decided that salvage services had
been rendered, but of only ordinary diffi
culty and merit, inasmuch as the crew
of the John Blake salved the Two
Friends in order to save their own lives.
The owners of the John Blake of course
got nothing, but the salving crew re
ceived 350 out of the total value of
1,237. New Orleans Picayune.
The Art of Conversation.
"Conversation," says a brilliant Amer
ican humorist, "is, in this generation, a
It was an art which our grandfathers
Btudied perhaps more than any other.
A gentleman, in the beginning of this
century, was usually more ambitious to
tell a story well or to state his argument
clearly than to understand science or
statecraft- Youth's Companion.
A missionary had taken bis wife with ;
him to India. There she died, and ths
brokenhearted widower received pennis
sion from the missionary board of his
church to come home. Here he promptly
consoled himself, and -with his second
spouse returned to the field of hia former
lalior. But fate was still unkind and at
the end of a year he was once more be
reaved. Again he besought the permis
sion of -, th board to return home, but
this time they gently but firmly de
clined, saying that they did not feel
justified in the expense of giving him
two vacations within two years. They
suggested, delicately, however, that if
hia desire was to recoup himself for hia
recent loss it was possible for him to
deputize a friend to secure for him a
new partner of hia joys and sorrows.
This he accordingly did.
The day the steamer was signaled the
bridegroom elect went down to meet it,
accompanied by a married friend. When
the latter returned he was pounced upon
by his own wife, who demanded all the
particulars of the meeting. "Did Dr.
Smith seem much overcome when he
saw Miss Brown?" was the first ques
tion. "Well yes a little." "Wasn't
he overjoyed?" "Well overjoyed is not
just the word, perhaps." "Why, didn't
he say he was delighted?" "Well no
net exactly." "But, at least, he seemed
pleased?" "Well I don't quite know."
"For mercy's sake, tell me juBt what
he did say and do." "Well" with evi
dent reluctance. "When he saw her
she was at the other end of the deck and
she was pointed out to him by the friend
she had traveled with. Smith looked at
her for a minute, and then he passed
his hand over his eyes and I heard him
murmur, 'Red hair for the third time

Dispatch. '. . '
Much of the music sung in city
churches would scarcely be character
ized, as "sacred" if it were heard any
where except in the house of God. And
there are some odd people who even in
this age of progress consider that such
music belongs rather to the concert
room than to the church.
Parson Snow was one of these people,
and when he "exchanged" one Sunday
with an old college friend who was set
tled over a large city parish he was both
amazed and shocked . by the vocal dis
play the anthem with which the
members of the choir electrified the con
gregation. "They had fine voices, my dear," he
explained to his little wife when he was
safely back in his own home, "and I
presume they wanted to show them off,
and so took advantage of a time when
their pastor was away. I thought at
first of rising and requesting them to
desist. Then I felt that perhaps it would
be my duty to report the matter to
"But I finally concluded that, as it
was undoubtedly a first offense and
caused by an almost pardonable vanity,
I would deal gently with them. So I
waited until they had finished, and then
I rose and said, 'We will now begin the
religious services of the morning.'
"And I feel sure," concluded the sim
ple minded pastor, "that they felt my
rebuke and will not let such a thing
occur again!" Youth's Companion.
The FIrst Edition" Craze.
Is this hankering after first editions
but a mere craze or fashion? in which
case I would venture to predict that
when the book loving and book buying
public once begins to consider seriously
what it is that really constitutes the
value of any first edition the ridiculous
and artificially enhanced prices of such
issues will fall.
Upon this public weakness, whether
fostered by sentimental or any other
feeling, the booksellers are now trading
and are in the habit of calling attention
in Roman capitals in their catalogues to
first editions of almost every conceiv
able book of course at the same time
adding a correspondingly increased
price to books which are hardly worth
purchasing in any edition.
For the present great demand for first
editions the keen competition among
English speaking peoples from abroad
for any book of special value How
offered for sale may be in a great de
gree responsible, aided by a large class
of unreasoning beings who buy books
merely because they are first editions,
and who by dint of their long purses are
able to "rush in where angels fear to
tread." These are they upon whom
ordinary book lovers look with dread,
and the booksellers not always with
approval. Notes and Queries.
A Bit of Correspondence.
A remarkable correspondence has been
published, ending in a true Irish fashion.
It begins: "Mr. Thompson presents his
compliments to Mr. Simpson, and begs
to request that he will keep his doggs
from trespassing on his grounds."
"Mr. Simpson presents his compli
ments to Mr. Thompson, and begs to
suggest that in future he should not
spell 'dogs with two gees."
"Mr. Thompson's respects to Mr.
Simpson, and will feel obliged if he will
add the letter 'e' to the last word in the
note just received, so as to represent
Mr. Simpson and lady."
"Mr. Simpson returns Mr. Thompson's
note unopened, the impertinence it con
tains being only equaled by its vulgar
ity." London Tit-Bits.
. Yentilation by Windows.
It is always proper to resort to window
ventilation if no other means of ventila
tion is attainable. Lower the windows
from the top; if possible open one win
dow from the bottom, but choose a win
dow the opening of which will not create
a draft. Heated air rises and will escape
through the lowered windows, while the
fresh air will enter through the raised
windows. New York Sun.

A KENTUCKY MULE.
A Gray If aired Old Fellow Treed s ll,4r
and Finally Killed It.
Sara Parson's gray mulo Zeko is eld
and gray, but ho possesses great strength,
both of understanding and of liody.
Saturday old Sam concluded that he
wouldn't work, and accordingly ho
Bhouldered his muzzle loading rifle and
went hunting. But before departing he
turned Zeke out to graze.
Finding the grass around the parson's
cabin rather scanty, Zeko wandered
down the edge of the creek next to the
mountain side. There within the shad
ow of the woods he struck a nice, ten
der clump of grass and immediately be
gan to eat it with great delight. While
engaged in this congenial task a large
black bear came down the mountain
side and approached Zeke. Zeke had
probably never seen a bear before, aa the
ursina tribe has long been scarce in these
mountains. Nor is it likely that the lieni
had ever on any previous occasion look
ed upon a, mule. But this bear was
hungry and, while Zeke was biggoi
game than he had bargained for, he
evidently thought it worth while to take
a look at him, for he came a little nearer.
Zeke was not a bit afraid. He had
never stood in awe of manhood, not
even Old Sam, his master, and it was
not likely that at this late period of hia
life he would be afraid of any four
footed creature that walked the earth.
Zeke calmly went on with his pleasant
task of eating grass. The bear edged up
another yard. Zeke switched his tail
and cleverly knocked a fly off his back,
and being relieved of the burden of the
insect still munched the grass.
The bear began to grew inquisitive.
He evidently did not understand what
kind of an animal Zeke was, his studies
in zoology being limited. He stood upon
his haunches and growled, not as a
threat, but as a kind of friendly salute.
Zeke did not raise his head, and still
munched the grass. The bear stopped
growling and walked in a respectful cir
cle around Zeke, studying him from
every corner. He might have been a
hundred miles away for all the notice
Zeke took. The bear was puzzled and
uttered another growl of interrogation.
Again finding himself unnoticed he be
gan to grow angry.
The bear went around behind Zeke
and came very close, evidently deter
mined to try by touch to arouse the
strange animal. Suddenly Zeke doubled
himself up in a knot and leaped high in
the air. Two legs flew out of the bunch
like piston rods and caught the bear in
the side, whirling him over in a com
plete somersault. When he struck the
ground he righted himself and rushed
away with a growl of pain. But Zeke
was hot after him, and the bear, seeing
that he would be overtaken, scrambled
np a hickory tree, barely missing a terri
ble drive of Zeke's hind heels.
Noon came and still Zeke was under
the tree. The afternoon passed. It was
almost sundown, but still Zeke was
there. The bear could stand it no long
er. Zeke was about twenty feet away
from the tree, apparently taking no no
tice, and accordingly he crawled down
the trunk as quietly as possible, intend
ing to slip away in the forest. Barely
had he touched the ground when Zeke
turned with a snort and leaped upon
him. So fast did his hind legs flash back
and forth that they looked like the driv
ing rods of an engine. In a minute the
bear was dead, every bone in his body
broken. Mrs. Parsons, who saw it all
from the door of her cabin, says that the
bear didn't even have time to growl.
When asked why she hadn't taken a gun
from the house and shoot the bear in the
tree for she is a girl woodsman and bold
as a man sh replied:
"I knowed Zeke didn't need no help,
and besides I didn't want to spile the
fun." Pond Creek (Ky.) Cor. New York
A Pitiful Sight.
"I was at Sioux City during the rise
in the Big Muddy," said T. P. Sinclair,
a prominent farmer and stock raiser of
South Dakota, "and there witnessed a
sight that haunts me. Pretty much
everything that would float came swirl
ing down the angry river wrecks of
buildings, household goods and gods
and among the drift was, what do you
think? a cradle! One of the old fashioned,
wooden sort, and in it sat a white headed
little tot, apparently about a year old.
"There was not a boat within hailing
distance, the cradle was fully 30Q yards
from shore and the river was running
like a mill race. I started on a dead run
down along the bank, hoping to find a
boat of some kind, but before I had gone
twenty-five yards the cradle tipped over,
spilling its little occupant into the mud
dy waters. I am pretty well seasoned,
let me tell you. I walked over rows of
dead men at Donaldson and Shiloh, have
shot Indians and helped hang cow
thieves, but that sight at Sioux City
broke me. I just sat down and cried
like a woman." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
A suit had gone against the defendant,
who arose and gave his opinion of the
judgment and was fined f 10 for con
tempt of court. A bill was handed to
the clerk which proved to be $20. "I
have no change," said the clerk, tender
ing it to the offender. "Never mind
about the other $10," was the retort.
"Keep it; Til take it out in contempt."
