NOTES ON EDUCATION.
MATTERS OF INTEREST TO PU
PIL AND TEACHER.
A Kingston, N. Y.,fchool that Teachee
Pnpila the Art or Science of Money
8if-'tmin Superintendent for
Jollet, III., Fchoola-Kd nesting Boje.
Leaaona in Savins.
The school authorities" of Kingston.
N. Y., have permitted one of the acbooW
to make a peculiar addition to the cur
riculum, which lnut been tried &ine
189 with the greatest sum ami is
to be extended to other public Institu
tion In the city. This Innovation, eon
1U la instructing the children In fru
gality and economy.
The mrthod employed Is the practi
cal teaching of the pupils the art or
vieueeof money making or saving, and
Important as this branch of instruction
may be It Is isaid that the plan adopted
at Kingston l the first to Inculcate hi
the puplk of any whool the primary
principli of saving money. So guceiwa
ful ban the exerluient been in that
place that It U urgtMl upon the attenilou
of instructor elsewhere. The plan pin
vidua for a saving bank for the chil
dren wlierehi tliey may deposit their
lMiuilM and get Interest on the accumu
lations. Since the exHrhneut was un
dertaken the deposits have aggregated
. In one school more than $2,5H), and
tliiis district Is one that Ls populated
almost exclusively by people In very
moderate circumstances, and Is, In fact,
the poorest In the city.
In this school there are 213 children,
many of whom have saved suniw
amounting to from $".() to $10. On
each Monday morning the teachers re
ceive from the children their cnnies
and an arrangement In made with one
of the ttavlngs banks of the city for
taking these small deposit and allow
ing interest on an account when it has
reached the sum of $.". It is the univer
sal testimony of the Instructors that
the system 1ms resulted In inculcating
liabita of economy that have been use
ful not only to the child but to the par
ent as well. The teaching has had a
lasting effect and it has not mattered
much whether the child has saved $10
or 10 cents; the Idea and habit of fru
gality has lecn permanently Inculcated
and will be of great value In after life.
If a child Is taught to save at all it
can be made to take a real pride In sav
ing and the main object of the practi
cal instruction is accomplished. If we
are to have manual training schools to
teach a pupil a trade, by which he can
earn a livelihood, why is it not equally
1mwrtaiit to teach him to husband his
resources by the practice of frugality
and economy? So long us It Is the first
$100 or $2oo of ft fortune that Is the
moat difficult to get it -would seem that
the public schools could hardly do any
thing chat would be of more practical
value to the pupil than to teach him
how to acquire the nucleus of a com
petewy. Wnman Superintendent.
Mm. Kate Henderson, who was re
cently appointed sujNTlntendent of the
Jollet, 111., schools, is the first woman
to occupy that linNrtant position in
Jolict She is a thorough educator, ex-
Icrle.ueed afid modern, and lias won her
way to eminence by natural ability and
band work. Her sclwtlnu for the post
of superintendent gives general satis

Mws Kate Alpine. She came to Jollet
from Wisconsin in 1S.M), and lier edu
cation was ac(ulred chiefly In the pub
lic schools of the city. She begat) to
teach In lsiw and continued in that
work until 1N71I, when she was married
to James K. Henderson. In lfwi she re-tunh-d
to her profession, and since tluit
time site has taught In almost every
department of the school. Mrs. Hen
derson stud'u-d while she taught. In
1805 lm was eh'ctcd a incinlier of the

Her good Judgment In ttcleetlng and as

leeu rewarded by placing her at the

The Educational Journal of Toronto
says: "We are firm believers In col
leges and universities, but we neverthe
less agree heartily with the Kev. Ir.
1'arkhurst, who in a late number of the
Ladies' Home Journal, in answer to the
query, 'Shall we send our lsy to col
lege? says, That depends n great deal
(vn Uie boy himself.' He declares him
self to lie a thorough believer in the
college, but holds tlut 'It might not Im
beat for his (our lioy) to go to college;
It might not be lx-st for the community
that he should. College can fit a man
for life, and, also, Lt can unlit him.
There are styles of education tluit dis
qualify the student for doing what he is
competent to do, without qualifying
him to do that which he might like to
do, but for which he lacks, and always
will lack, the prerequisites.' There is
sound wisdom in this, but it may lie
questioned, when analyzed, if it means
anything more than that we have not
yet a sufficient variety of colleges to
meet the wants of all classes of boys
and girls. The question certainly
should not be taken as synonymous
with 'Shall we give our boy the best
education we are able to provide?' That
demands an unqualified affirmative."

Weyler, after a stormy passage on a
coasting steamer from Manzanillo, ar
rived at Santiago de Cuba Sunday af
ternoon. The port and shipping were
profusely decorated in honor of the captain-general
and lie was cheered by a
large number of people.
Addressing the local authorities Sun
day evening in the pal ice of Santiago
de Cuba, Captain-General Weyler ex
plained that he was corning to pacify
that part of the island and that though
he was strongly desirous of peace, hia
system of making war was to be rigor
ouely maintained toward the rebels who
refused to accept the clemency which
Spain, through him, offered them. The
goneral added :
"Notwithstanding the examples in
rigor aet by other colonial nations, I at
tend to the reconstruction of the
wealth of the island. This was the pur
pose which inspired my last decrees,
and I propose to continue this policy,
although I have been compelled in some
instances to countenance destruction
owing to the fact that circumstances
have made it necessary in some cases to
destroy the resources of the rebels."
The captain-general then referred to
the sincerity of the Spanish government
in its desire to introduce reforms in
Cuba, concluding with the remark:
"I come to briug peace or war. If the
former is accepted we will then return
to the law. But if the latter is desired,

afternoon ou tbe public square Marion
Sebastian was shot dead, five bullets
having penetrated his body.
A coroner's jury heard the testimony
immediately and its verdict was that S
D. and Jack Turner and an unknown
party fired the murderous shots; also
that S. D. Turner, who is a brother-in-law
of Sebastian, was the principal in
the killing, and fired the first shot- A
A suit by Turner against his father in

THREE KILLED ANO MANY INJURED
Scrnei of 4 of alih Ensue Shock of Colli.
iun tVii Terrific Two Rrar Coaches
of First Train Smashed Into
Chicago, Julyl. Thiee peraona were
killed outright and about twenty or
thirty persons injured in a rear-end
:ollifion ou the Chicago & Northwestern
road at 12:45 Wednesday morning at
West Chicago, thirty miles out of Chi
cago, on the Galena division.
The victims of the collisions were
Christian endeavor delegates who left
Chicago last night enroute for the great
convention in San Francisco.
The colliding trains were sections No.
4 and 5 of Christian Endeavor special
sent out in nine sections, beginning at
10:30 p. in. Section No 5 ran into sec
tion No. 4 which left Chicago fifteen
minutes ahead of it. Section 4 carried
the Wisconsin delegates, nearly 500
strong and in tbe rear sleeper were peo
ple from Fond du Lac, Green Bay, Ap
pleton, and other Wisconsin cities.
Section No. 4 bud come to a stop uat
)utside of West Chicago where the Free
port line diverges from the main line.
Section 5 came up behind at great speed
and tne shock of the collision was ter
rific. The passengers in the two rear
sleepers of section No. 4 were all in their
berths and most of them were asleep.
They received no warning and those not
killed outright awoke to kind them
selves jammed in the wreckage. Pas
sengers on both trai-.is hastened to the
spot and began the, work of rescue. One
of the first of the injured taken out was
Engineer Charles Courtney of section
No. 5. He stuck to his post and iB so
3eriously injured tbat he cBnnot live.
The body of an unidentified man,
supposed to be a tramp, was found be
tween the baggage cai and the engine.
The man had been crushed to death.
An immediate call was made for help.
Chicago was notified and asked to send
phydicians at once, and medical help
was requested from Geneva, Wheaton
The engine of section No. 5 struck the
rear sleeper of (section No. 4 with terri'
tic force. The engine was ' totally
wrecked. Strange to say, the rear
sleeper of section No. 4 was not the one
to suffer most. It was driven with ter
rific force upon the second sleeper, and
such was its impetus that it crsshed
through it as if it had been of card
board, and reduced it to a mass of
wreckage. The passengers in the sec
ond sleeper were therefore the ones to
suffer most, and it was in it that most
