CSharlos T. Yorkos, the Chicago street
railway magnato in a paper road at tho
annual meeting of tho federation of
Commercial schools, hold in Chicago,
recently urged In tho strongest terms
tho teaching of tho commercial branch
es in tho public ychools. He said in
"If a boy leaves his school before ho
ihas ontorod college wo find him totally
unprepared for his business life' as far
as knowledge of It Is concornod.
Tho collego graduate is in tho same
position as tho boy who loft school
'four years boforo, a novlco, oxcopt that
his condition is worse, for ho has ago,
prldo, and tho lcnowlodge that ho has
gone through college, and therefore is
superior in learning to tho boy who
has not, and should rocolvo more con
'sldoration. Those facts tend to unfit
him for tho ordeal which Is boforo him.
Ho is compollod to commence at tho
foot of tho laddor. Tho old associate
is his superior in evory way oxcopt in
Togard to his collego education. I
have seen a number. ,of cases of this
-kind, and I have also noticed the se
vere strain thoro Is on a young man
graduato from college, forced to com
mence to learn tho rudiments of busi
ness of which ho knows nothing.
Business instruction should bo in
cluded in the curriculum of collego
I appreciate tho fact that this would
produce a groat revolution in tho
course of instruction at our schools
and collegos, but from my experience
in life and tho study I have given the
subject, I am sure that this revolu
tion -would bo beneficial. Unless, as
I have said before, a young man ex
pects to enter a profession, it is posi
tively necessary. I do not mean that
any particular kind of business should
bo taught, except where a choice has
been made by the pupil and there are
facilities for so teaching him. Gen
eral principles are the same in all bus
iness affairs, and instruction in these
principles should be universal." Cardinal.

The Missouri debating rules are laid
down in the fallowing, which is taken
from tho Associated Press dispatches:
Mountain Grove, Mo., April 21. At
a rural literary debate near here last
night tho subject "Resolved, That dem
ocratic principles are contrary to tho
laws of God" was handled in the afllrm
ativo by. William Pinch in such a man
ner that a negative debater hurled a
chair at Finch's head, dislodging three
of the lattor's teeth. This so enraged
the judges that thoy closed the contest
summarily, giving the afllrmatlve side
the decision. A general fight ensued,
in which one judge had his nose broken
another suffered a fractured rib and
two of the negative debaters sustained
NIGHT GOWN PARADE.
Last night a repetition of last year's
night gown parade, which scorns to
havo bocomo a regular foaturo In uni
versity dormitory life, took placo on
tho old athletic field. At about half
past ton tho students living In tho dor
mitories assombled In night attlro, in
tho triangle. Thoro, as an oponlng cere
mony, by tho woird light of many col
ored fires, John Gardiner planted an
ivy in honor of tho class of 1900. His
dedicating speech was greeted with
loud applause, often so vociferous as
to rondor tho finer parts inaudible
When ho concluded, it was decided
by tho unanimous consent of all thoso
present, that they adjourn to tho old
field. After circling tho trlanglo, sing
ing and dancing tho famous snako
dance, each man carrying a colored
light, thoy reached tho field.
Hero a groat pile of barrels and
branches had boon heaped up. Tbo
paradors formed an enormous circle
about it, and as the fire lit up and
throw Its glaro on tho white spoctros,
tho effect was Indeed wolrd. Till a lato
hour these antics were continued; sev
eral luckless freshmen wero compolled
to sing or speak, and at an early hour
this morning, when the fires had
burned low, the spirits returnod to
tholr rooms. The Pennsylvanian.
HE KNOWS WHEREOF HE WRITES.
An editor prints his paper to give
his patrons the news of tho day and
for tho money there is in it. Ho is
presumed to know of what ho writes,
and he generally does. When ho writes
as he does in the Leader Courier, Os
ceola Mills, Pa., without fee or hope of
reward, that "Chamborlain's Cough
Remedy acts magnically, and we havo
found none better in our household.
If you have a cough, try it," it may be
accepted as an honest expression,
worthy of credence. For sale by Druggists.
THE JUNE DELINEATOR.
The Paris Exposition still claims
first attention In the magazines, and
The Delineator gives, In the June num
ber, a lightly drawn but graceful and
entertaining pen-picture of the opening-day
ceremonies, followed hy a short
description of the Fair as it presents
itself to the eye from various coigns of
vantage Eliot Gregory Includes In his
paper an interesting resume of French
Fairs. The large and important part
which American women have taken in
the Fair reflects great credit on the
nation and on the various individuals,
clubs and committees who have worked
so hard to give proper representation
to the arts and crafts of womankind.
