Lo prevent serious blunders by his edi

other prominent positions in financial

mon with other heavy tax payers , ho is

only bo maintained by an uilicientpollco.

labored with habitual law-breakers to

had the audacity to make overtures to
the mayor of Omaha on behalf of certain
gamblers , and pledged the Herald to
silence if the mayor would consent to lot

Does Mr. McShane sanction such con

say this much from no sellish motives.

Manual Tralnlns : lit the Schools.
Nothing could butter illustrate the im
pression that Itas boon made by the dis
cussion of the question of manual train
ing in the public schools than the fact
that two papers favorable to the intro
duction of such training in the schools
were road at the late meeting of the
American association for the advance
ment of science. Ono of thcso papers was
submitted by Prof. James of the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania , an educator who
has mngcd himself on the side of progress -
gross , aud who especially UA a student of
economics , from which point of view ho
treated this question , discerns the grow
ing necessity for giving a practical char
acter to the nystorn of publio education.
Ho regarded the general introduction
into the public schools of sys
tematic training in the underlying prin
cipals of the handicrafts as the next great
stop in the development of our educa
tional system a sto for which wo are
now ready , and which should bo taken
immediately. Ho argued that the fur
nishing of facilities in connection with
the public schools for training in the fun
damental operations of manual work
will tend to give symetry to a system
which at present is notoriously one
sided and defective. The schools are
chiefly , if not altogether , devoted to
trainingone side of the child to the detri
ment of the other side. The pupil who
graduates from them is not fitted to enter
any avocation except these which are al
ready overcrowded , and nearly all of
which are simply an existence of genteel
poverty. This lopsulcdnoss can bo reme
died only by introducing into the public
schools a system of training which will
open up to these who go through it the
possibility of entering handicrafts as well
The introduction of manual training
Would bring about a great improvement
in attendance at the public schools.
Thousands of children who are taken
out of school when they have simply
learned to road , write and cipher in a
way , because their parents find it neces
sary that they shall acquire practical
knowledge that will bo useful , would bo
permitted to remain in school if such
knowledge were imparted thoro. If a
boy could got manual training the fact
would appeal to the parent , and there
would result a lengthening of the school
life of the great raas * of children , with
great benefits to them and to the com
munity. Another thing that would
bo accomplished by such train
ing would bo the removal from
manual callings of the stigma which
in the minds of many attaches to thorn.
The tendency would bo to teach pooulo
to associate intelligence and culture witli
manual labor , a sort of instruction which
the American people especially need. .
Let them once appreciate that in carpentering
pentoring or plumbing or moulding there
is a wide field for intellectual qualities ,
and a cotnploto revolution will ba ef
fected in their attitude toward these mat
Manual training as a part ot the school
system has made considerable progress
in the last three years , but as yet its
adoption has been simply experimental.
In tiio cities where it is being tried it is
merely as a supplemental course In which
provision Is made for only a few scholars ,
Baltimore was the first city to establish
a school devoted to raanua
training ns a part of its regular public
school system. It opened in 1831 with
sixty pupils aud at the close of the torn
this year had one hundred aud nighty.
The school dons not aim to teach trades ,
but to lay the foundation for any trade ,
and n comprehensive system of instruc
tion for this purpose is pursued. Tin
reports regarding this school show that
It has done a valuable amount of work
and boon successful from the hogiuning
The uniform testimony is that in no case
where manual training lias lioen intro
duccd has it boon abandoned or cur
tailed , the tendency being all the other
way. It is.not to bo expected , howovar ,
that thu innovation will continue to make
progress without encountering sumo op
position. Already the objection hu
boon made that there is no
moro reason why the state should
undertake to fit a man foi
earning his living at a handicraft than
why it should undertake to tit him to
earning his living at law , physic ; o
divinity , nnd undoubtedly other argu
ments will bo found to show that it is
neither proper nor practicable for the
public schools to go in the direction of
manual training. The impressive fact ,
however , which is an answer to all op
posing arguments , is that while all the
professions are greatly overcrowded the
ranks of intelligent nnd skilled American
mechanics do not increase , and this coun
try has still to look to other lands for the
highest skilled labor. Manual training
as a part of the publio school system , it
is believed , would in time relieve the in
dustries of the United States of this de
pendence , and for this and other not Joss
important considerations the experiment
should receive a thorough trial.
Art In Newspaper llluntratlonn.
Public opinion should enact one of irs
unwritten but etlcctive laws to abolish
newspaper illustrations. They have
coino to bo so atrocious that they can no
longer appeal even to the uncultured
taste for which they are especially de
signed. The Sunday illustrations are
particularly nauseating. Look at them.
Can any human taste for art bo so de
praved as to delight in such monstrosi
ties ? To say nothing of the wishy-washy
stulf with which the so-called literary
syndicates flood the country , the Illus
trations should bo suppressed for the
sake of decency. Few people will tate
the pains to wade through such rot and
drivel. Thus the harm is not so great.
It is otherwise with the horrible
"cuts. " They can bo taken in
at a glance and become a potent
factor in lowering the popular art ideal.
Americans have always been accused of
having an uncultivated taste in art mat
ters. Until within a few years a picture
was a picture to most of us , whether a
painting or a chromo. Wo had begun to
improve somowhaton this taste , though
the immense sale of manufactured paintIngs -
Ings , which are made by the aero in east
ern cities , shows that as a pcoulo wo
have not gene very far. The only way
to raise the standard among the common
people is to put before thorn good
nnd artistic productions. This is what
syndicate illustrated papers are not do
ing. They are exerting whatever inllu-
eucc they have in dragging the public
taste back mlo the mire. To very many
poor people they may be the only works
of art God savn the mark accessible.
Abolish them by ceasing to buy thorn.
Money thus spent is worse than"wasted. .
You get no information , no descrip
tion , no entertainment , nothing but
wretched sketches and pictures of
people which bear no resemblance to
tliem. A good engraving is a thing of
beauty and of joy.
The illustrations of people of whom wo
read is not quite so senseless. Aside
from the fact that in many ca.scs it may
be impossible to make the portraits ap
pear worse than the originals the latter
can have recourse to the cano , the horse
whip , or even the courts , and thus induce
the artists to use a little caution. But wo
are defenseless against the modern illus
trated "articles , " until newspaper read
ers make the publishers understand that
their enterprise is not appreciated.

the north and northwest , the greatest ar
tery that traverses Iowa aud Illinois is
seeking an entrance into Omaha by way
of Uccatur , in Burt county. This , of
course , will not solve the problem ol

tom on this side of the Missouri , but it
shows that Omaha's great packing
houses and stock yards are attracting
competing lines to the seaboard. If the
Illinois Central gains an entrance into

THE treasury redemption of the trade
dollar expired yesterday. The o stimatcs
of thu number of the dishonored dollars

amount presented , but it is supposed thai
some were sent over from Ch ina , though
doubtless a very small sum. The issue
ot this coin was to the amount of $ W,000.-
OOO.so that most of it is still circulating in
China. The entire course of the govern

the time when redemption was provided
for , was far from creditable to the coun
try. Having Issued the coin , congress
practically repudiated it by demonetiz

not satisfied with this , and she had to respond

"The Chinamen are very particular In mak

der to have the porkers fresh and wholesome
they prefer to buv live animals. The pigs
are examined carefully from snout to tall.
They must have regular features ,
bo well proportioned and with
out a particle ot blemish of any kind.
When properly cleansed the entire carcass
Is soakpti In aromatic Hpices for at least an
hour. Then the dresser , who Is usually an
expert caterer , proceeds to prepare It for
roasting. The legs are so bent that they as-
time a kneeling posture when placed before
Joss. The mouth in prlod open and a ball
of dough colored red Is inserted between the
teeth to make It resemble a drawn trylnz to
swallow a ball ot fire. The eyes are care
fully closed and the lashes straightened out.
The ears are spread out and the tall Is curled
upwards towards the back.
The oven or bin is so constructed with
compartments that the space In which the pig
Is shut up only receives the heat from the tire
below , while another compartment carries off
the flame and the smoke. In this manner a
pie that weighs 150 pounds or more Is roasted
to a beautiful brown In less tnan an hour.
Then it Is taken out and painted light red
and otherwise fantastically decorated to
make Joss happy.

remarkable ono ever hold In the county. The
preparation has been ominous. The B. < % M.
railroad has had warning that something
would drop , but they never dreamed that an
avalanche was about to fall noon them and
that their political thermometer would bo
frozen at ono fell sweep. The question of
who struck Billy Patterson may bo a mys
tery , but there Is no mystery as to who struck
the railroad ring on the head and drove It
Into the earth. The people of Lincoln ,
throuch their delegates to the conn tv conven
tion , did the job so neatly and expodltlously
that there Is no mistaking the sentiment on
thequestlon of railroad rates In the state , that
exists In the city of Lincoln where the B. & M.
has held the republican party by the throat
In all the years since Its birth as a city. A
quiet discussion commenced among the dele
gates Immediately after the primaries , In ef
fect that Judge Mason and the board ot trans
portation should bo endorsed. The business
men and delegates acroed to It but , there
were none sanguine- enough that U could be
carried out successfully. The question of
heading the state delegation with the name
of Judge Mason was not thought to promise
success early In the day and the railroad at
