Martha Washington could not have

In the manufacture of thread. How it
happened was recently described at a
political meeting In Paisley, Scotland,
by Mr. Clark, former provost of the
town. He said that when Napoleon
occupied north Cerniany in l.mxj, the
upply of silk from Hamburg, which
was used in making heddles, or the
loom harness In Paisley, was cut off.
Unless some substitute could le found,
Paisley's weaving industry would be
ruined, refer Clark experimented
with cotton warp yarn, and succeeded
In making thread like the six cord
sewing thread 111 to-day. It took
the place of silk in the heddles, and
the weaving business went on, unin
terrupted by the war. Then it occur
red to another man to use the cotton
thread In place of linen for sewing,
and he recommended it to the women
of the town. It was so much smoother
than the linen that the women liked
It. The thread was sold In hanks and
wound by the purchaser info little
balls, but the merchant soon decided
to wind the hank on a Isibbln or spool
for his customers as an added Induce
ment to purchase It instead of the
linen. From this beginning the cotton
thread trade has'grown. and now silk
and linen are used only for special

relation to religion, a clergyman said,
We are bringing up all over this land
a lusty set of young pagan, who,
sooner or later, they or their children,
will make havoc of our Institutions."
It Is a broad statement. If it Is true
the fact is of the greatest Importance,
for the public schools s treiy fall to
justify themselves if they do not build
character as well as Impart knowledge.
The charge was made as an argument
in favor of the introduction of dis
tinctly religious Instruction in the pub
lic schools. But is It true? The Out
look of New York City has attempted
to answer the question, not arbitrarily,
but by asking the opinion of nineteen
college presidents, the heads of Institu
tions of learning In the North and In
the South, the Fast and the West.
Their replies are based upon a sti,
of the students In their own oollei:
part of whom are graduates of public'
schools, part graduates of private or
sectarian schools where relig'on if
taught Not one of the nineteen col
lege presidents finds that the moral in
fluence of the public school Is Inferior
to that of the best private schools. All
say, on the contrary', that the public
school pupils enter life with as high
moral conceptions and as much te
llgion as their companions from the
private schools; but several of ihfl
presidents do notice a decided differ"
ence between the product of different
public schools and different private
schools a difference which Is always
traceable to the character and personal
Influence of the teacher. The revolt of
the Interesting inquiry Is a splendid,
tribute to the public schools. The pop
ular faith in them Is not without Jus
tification. But two other conclusions'
should not be overlooked; the tremen
dous Influence of good teachers, that
Is, teachers of strong and beautiful
personal character, and the influence.
In morals and religion, of the home.
If there are no religious influences In
the home, nothing which the schools
can teach will supply the lack; nnd if
there is religion there, the pupils In
the public schools will do very well
without special religious intruct'on.

Mrs. Julia Ward Howe wrote a re

never sung at all certainly not by the
soldiers; but the trivial words of the
original song, beginning:
"John Brown's body lies a-inoldering
In the grave,"

caught up and sung by those at home

stanzas were so added to and ampli

It Is supposed by people who are

shoots of the war spirit, and were
never heard before the day of Fort
Sumter and Major Anderson,
On the contrary, the precise air and
words, as they are sung and play
now, bad been known for several yean
prior to 1801. I cannot undertake to
say bow many. But I well remember
