P ' A prominent educator calls attention
j > . -to the fact that the school savings bank
has gradually come to occupy n mofrt
prominent and Important place In th.s
country's public educational.Hyotcm. In
California the system 1ms been catnb-
llshcd In n largo number of places , ' aiid
there arc Indications that the practical
teaching of thrift will become general
In the very near future , an everyone
scorns to bo moat enthusiastic In the
support of the Idea. It IB stated that
there are now no loss than aR88 hchool
banks lu thu United States , and that
the.se have an army of IW.507 depositors.
TJio amount deposited In tliuso banks
since their beginning Is placed at $807-
000 , but the writer snys these figures
must be far from qomplete as the school
bunks In the one county of Montgom
ery , In Philadelphia , have received
$17fj,800 from children , and have no less
than -1,010 depositors. In" Atlantic Olty
the deposits In the school banks there
last year reached a total of $0,870 , , and
the youngest are showing great Interest
In the Idctu Now , Instead of spending
their pennies and nickels for useless
trlnketa , they put their money Into the
bank and take great pride lu showing
their little deposit books. The only
objection against the movement Is'that
It Increases the work of the school
teacher , but those who have tried It do
not llnd fault. Once or twice a week
the teacher calls for deposits aud the
pupils then bring forward whatever
they have , from one cent up. They are
given due credit on the bank books , and
the teacher then deposits the amount lit
some reliable banking Institution. The
system lias long been In vogue In
France and Holglum and Is a great suc
cess there. Thu young American can
be taught to take care of his money af
none ton early an age.
An ( .mazing amount of educational
sense and wise , gracious mniihel are
crowded Into an article In tin- Inde
pendent on college education fur girls
by Helolse Edwiua Ilcrsey , a graduate
of Vassar and formerly a teacher In
Hmlth College. Thu writer disposes at
once of the question as to whoth'er a
girl should go to college or not by de
claring that "there Is no doubt that It
Is becoming an obstacle to women who
must enter the wage-earning world not
to have what Is called a liberal educa
tion. " With her there Is no room for
controversy upon this point. The pro
fession of teaching Is slowly being
closed to all those who have not the
requisite college degree , and Miss Her-
sey believes that other professions will
follow suit. If a woman expects to
occupy a position of responsibility and
prollt she must prepare for It by going
to college. While the highest and no
blest sphere of womau Is the "home , It
Is very plain that every girl , under pres
ent conditions , must face the contin
gency of being called upon to earn her
own living. Among the gains of the
college life Miss lluiwy places llrst
"the trained mind. " She demolishes
the old-time notion that college educa
tion means nun-fly an accumulation of
knowledge. Klllclency Is the all-Im
portant thing. What a graduate can
do Is of far more Importance than what
she knows. When a woman lias been
out of college live years there IH little
probability that she would bu ahlo to
pass the examination for the Freshman
year. The most Important element ac
quired Is "the general knowledge gf the
sweep and trend of the world's history
which the classics and the literatures
of our own language and of other lan
guages may give us. " Among other
advantages enumerated by the writer
are thu executive experience gained
n the miniature life of the col-
ego , the great privilege of friendship
ml the noble gift of loyalty and tie-
otlon to the alma mater with which
he college Imbues the student. Ol
uoursu it follows that so keen a stu
lent of education does not belluve In
co-educational Institution * , because
hey Interfere with the cultivation of
hose friendships which she extols In
college life. If a girl selects a eo
educational college , however , she
should choose one where the Idea til

The Honorable Alva Merrill of Chilli-

with Mr. Merrill's portrait were pub

On the train returning home from

the Honorable Mr. Merrill and several
other members. After a time one of
them aaid :
"Merrill , what time 'do you get to

This attracted the attention of nn
old man who had been apparently
awaiting some Identification of Mr.
Merrill , and as soon as he heard the
name he rushed up to his seat aud ex
tending his hand , snlfl :
