A hew educational scheme called

eountries and directing their studies
upon them. Frof. Woodruff had near
ly made a success of his schome when
lie died, worn out by bard work. It
has however been taken up by other

would look to see half tho people stand

At tho fourteenth anniversary of the
Natioual Temperance Society, held in
Brooklyn last May, one of the speak
ers, the Rev. Dr. l'eck, of Brooklyn,
after a powerful array of facts, and a
most forcible argument in favor of
lotai aostmence, urged oy most con
vincing logic the right and the duty of
all good citizens to seek tomperanco
legislation a follows:
Some men and some newspapers are
seized with the ra'jica of denunciation
when we suggest temperanco legisla
tion. This is eilhor deinagogism or in
corrigible ignorance. For there never
was a colony before the Revolution,
nor a State in tho Union since, that
did not and has not, iu 250 yeais, as
sumed the right to legislate upon the
sale of liquors. True, it has been large
ly in the form of license or regulation,
but that admits the right and necessi
ty of the State that is, the public
opinion to control it. If the law
may say who shall and who shall not
sell; if the state or city, may prohibit
ninety-nine citizens from selling it and
permit only one to vend it, then, in
the exercise of the same right and
power, it may prohibit it altogether as
a beverage. It the State mav prohibit
the sala on Sunday, and to minors and
known drunkards, then it may by the
sam" right prohibit it on all days and
to all non-minors and nou-drunkanls ;
and no nou-minor or non-drunkard can
refute this logic!
The right of the people through
their representatives to control the
sale of liquor being established, what
legislative policy is dntyi
Is the sale and drinking of liquors,
a a beverage, a good or evil to the
drinker, the family, tho taxpayer, tho
social fabric, the church, and the com
monwealth? You know tho dreadful
bill of indictment found by tho grand
jury of history. The pauperism, crime
sickness, waste, woe, wretchrdncss,
misery, horror, death and damnation
aro known and read of all men. Has
the Slate the right to lirems all this?
Should not the State prohibit and pre
vent this to the utmost of its power?
Open bars are the prolific source of in
temperance. Suppress open bars 2nd
two-thirds of all intemperance would
tlisappear. The State has no right to
license a mau to deal out the poison
that maddens my brain to commit
murder, and then hang ine for doing
what its license crazed me to do. The
State permits men to sell to their fellow-man
what incites them to violence
and crime, and then pockets from 6100
to $.VJ0 of the blood money as its sharo
for permitting this hellish work to be
done. The Stata or city, iu licensing
it, becomes a partner in causing the
woe and hoiror. And every voter is
the State. Every voter sends a repre
sentative to Albany to license or pio-
hibit the cause of all this crime and
misery. Legislators liave a power of
attorney to act for the voters. What
they do ire do. Have we the right to
legalize a enrso and wrong against
mankind? We have no right to legal
ize tho cans'; of more crime and woe
than spring from larceny, gambling
ttad prostitution. Now prohibition
deals with the evil ot liquor-;e!l:ng :is
God deals with all evils furbl h it.

That is a falsehood, Malignant awd uit

Tha logic is invincible.
As I cannot detail the overwhelm
proot er the grand, though not com

this country and Great Britain, in

sistible testimony I will prove it by
a mlwdio ad absurdam. All enemies
of temperance denounce and oppose
prohibition. Every distiller and brew

beer saloon hates it; every beer-garden
and bagnio hates it; every drunkard
and tippler hates it; every man who
profits by the sale in routs and auxil
iary business hates it ;every demagogue
who rides into ortico on tho v-.tes of
the saloon hates it; every partisan who
loves party more than principle hates
it every newspaper that panders to
the tratlic and profits by its patronage
hates it the whole army f dealers.
drinkers and allies denounce and fight
prohibition. "Why oppose a law that
does not injure the business? The
brewers and liquor dealers have or
ganized to crush prohibition. Why
crush a failure? Whoever heard of
the opponents ef a law organizing and
spending large sums of money to re
sist and repeal a law that did not hurt?
Wonderful lopiic! The "President of

words -"Undi-H table success has at

General Geo. S. of our burg
that's one of the family that has
icd phonetics; that's all.
In answer to various and numerous
questions and inquiries from our coun
ty readers, we give a general review
of the Institute and its work.
To start with, it is a model school
for general and thorough review of
such branches, and such only, as are
required by law for first and second
grade certificates in this state.
The programme of daily recitations
was arranged and placed on the board
the first day, and has been carried out
to the letter. Each study has its time
and has tho attention of all during
that time. Each day's work is definite
ly assigned by topics, and only that
topic or division of the study will be
considered for tho time aisigned. For
example take the study cf physiology.
That division or part of it which treats
of motion, as the bones and muscles,
is given for one or two days' work, as
the extent of that division may re
quire. This division is considered the
motory apparatus or system. It is
scheduled on tho board showing the
divisions and sub-divisions in full.
Thus a complete and natural outline
of the subject is secured, and any au
thor can be used as text and authority.
ltie scientific names of tha important
organs, bone, muscles, &c, are re
quired, aiyl in a short time each teach
er has a perfect outline and- vocabula
ry for the subject in hand.
Alter tins is finished ine nutritive
apparatus is taken Hp, scheduled on
the board by the teacher, showing the
various subdivisions, as mouth, teeth
salivary glands, oesophagus, stomach,
intestines, liver, panaeres. spleen, Sec
Questions as to the size, lecation, func
tion, hygiene. Sec, are asked concern
ing each division or part of a division,
in order that each teacher may secure
a comprehensive, accurate and practi
cal knowledge of the entire subject
Those different systems or apparati,
and subdivisions, aro taken up in their
natural order. By this mnans teach
ers soon learn to analyze for them
selves, and secure order in thsir work.
Next the circulatory apparatus is
considered in a similar manner. Then
tho respiratory apparatus or system.
After that the assiruilatory apparatus
or system. Then the nervous system,
and last tlu sympathetic svstem.
and so, in a short time, tho com
plete subject matter of an en
tire study is analyzed condensed,
scheduled, systematized and indelibly
fixed iu tho teacher's mind and in some
tangible shape for future use.
Grammar, arithmetic and all the
other branches are similarly presented
aud considered. Never have we be
fore so fully realized the importance
and advantage cf some system and or
der in tho teacher's work. Every
teacher comes to the class with some
definite preparation on the topic
signed, and when the recitation is
