Meant to Women.
FAREWELLS TO FAMILIAR HAUNTS
Protest Against Bible Reading- In
Pabltc Schools Advantages of
Summer Schools Educa
This year In the front row of a gallery In
ft college chapel, not many miles distant,
sat, on commencement morning, three
women of distinctly fashionable type, ac
companied by ft well-groomed gentleman,
a man of club-land and the Inner circle of
the elect. A "chlel" sat back of them
"takln' notes." Now, faith, he'll prent
'em." It was evidently their first glimpse
of a girls' college, and they were distinctly
Interested and curious. The guests of ft
distinguished trustee, they felt at liberty
to comment on the new sights. Their Inter
est waa keenest in the graduates. "Why,
there are a great many who are actually
pretty," said tha one who might have come
out of an Edith Wharton story, nodding
her blue plumes In special approval of the
two fair-haired marshals of the academic
"And they walk well. That must be the
athletics," commented the man.
"Put I wonder If such learned young
women ever marry?' murmured the little
old lady on the end, adjusting her gold
Others have wondered at that same thing,
although why It should excite the general
publlo the girl graduate does not see. No
less distinguished a visitor to our shores
than Matthew Arnold wonderful how a col
lege education affected a young woman's
"chances." Doubtless many, like pretty
Melissa of Tennyson's story, find their
Florlan early In life, before the college
doors have closed behind them. Others,
like Psyche, discover Cyril only through
stress and storm, while those who, as Ida
did, mistake the meaning of all their hard,
earned culture, almost miss the prince
through mistaken ideals.
To say lust what these girls of 1907 will do
Is Impossible, but it Is interesting to take
as suggestive the statistics of ft class that
this year celebrates its decennial. Ten
years ago ft New England college gradu
ated a' class 113 strong. Of this number
nine have died, forty-three have married,
twenty are teaching In secondary schools,
three are Instructors In colleges, twelve
are living at home, six are In settlement
work as an occupation (not as ft pastime),
four write, three are artists of some repu
tation, two are musicians, and the remain
ing eleven have not responded to requests
for facts. A record that Is Indicative of
the results of college training Is not a
slight matter, and this Is fairly typical.
On 'the whole the ultimate destiny of
which the dowager at the recenf com
mencement thought so highly has not been
neglected. Almost half the class haw mar.
rled. Of the remaining half practically all
are filling spheres of usefulness In one field
or another. If the girls of this year can
show as good a record at their decennial
surely the dominant spirit is but a forecast
of the future.
Sometimes Reaction Telia.
While no one would have anything of
beauty subtracted from college existence,
nor would ha suggest any diminution of
the glories and Joys of commencement the
reaction that comes afterward In many
cases Is a severe strain on the best bal
anced character. Even the women's col
leges located In cities have about them
much that Is beautiful In art and archi
tecture. The rooms In which the students
live, though simple, are as a rule artistic
There are few or none of the vexations,
petty bothers of household life. Breakfast,
lunch, dinner, appear In due course of
time, and untidy rooms are deftly put to
rights. It Is hard to exchange the gray
ivy-clad quadrangles of Bryn Mnwr, the
Berkshlres of Holyoke, the lake of Welles
lye and the elm-shaded streets of North
ampton for an ugly manufacturing town,
a homely little village or a big city with
Its dirt and clatter.
To live with a riotous family of sturdy
small brothers or querulous sisters, with
an over-tired mother and an abstracted
father, does not tend to that Platonic calm
of mind that is essential to scholarly at
tainment. Or if outward circumstances are
more favorable, if wealth supplies luxuri
ous sittings for her culture, it may be
that the college bred girl mubt look for
ward to ft family out of sympathy with her
alms anil half scornful of her enthusiasms,
tn short, the first plunge Into home life
Is apt to be as startling as an unexpected
bath in ice cold water. Before her daugh
ter went to college her mother was dis
turbed because she did not know French
and German; upon her return with the
desired modern tongues she is often an
noyed at her failure to be Of service in
household crises. Cooking and sewing secra

BIBLH ly ri'DLIO SCHOOLS.
Protest of Jewish Itabbla Against
The central conference of American rab
bis has Issued from Its New York head
quarters a pamphlet, entitled "Why the
Bible Should Not Be Read In the Public
Schools." It contains an exhaustive Argu
ment against the reading of selections from
the scriptures to public school children,
supported by court decision hearing upon
the subject, among them the Bible reading
decision of the Nebraska supreme court.
"Our public schools belong to the state,"
say the rabbis. "They are expressions not
of denominational but state interest. They
were established not by the members of a
particular sect to educate their own chil
dren, but by the people as a whole, so that
all tho children of the land might receive
the Instruction that would fit them for cltl
censhlp, "These schools are attended by children
whose parents have every shade of religi
ous belief. They are supported by taxes
paid by every member of the community,
whatever the character of his creed, even
though he disavow any creed, and without
regard to the question as to whether or no
he has children of school age to take ad
vantage of the educational opportunities
"In one word, thoy are public and not
private schools, and, therefore must be con
ducted In such a way that all those Inter
ested may have equal privileges and receive
exactly the same recognition."
The rabbis assert further that all versions
of the Bible are denominational, and that
none of the versions are acceptable to tho
Jews. They continue:
"Suppose, as Is sometimes the case, the
teacher is a Cathollo or a Jecw. The Bible
version generally used In our schools Is a
Protestant translation. Is this teacer to be
compelled to use this version? When In his
reading ho come to Interpretations with
which he does not agree, shall he Intro
duce changes Into the text to make It cor
respond with his belief? Is he apt to risk
the displeasures of the authorities by readlrg
passages which confirm his own position,
or will he sacrifice his self-respect by read
ing selections which meet the approval of
his superiors but tha burden of which belles
his own conviction T Has a publlo school
system a right thus to embarrass Us teach
ers, to subject them in this Indirect way to
what is vlrtunlly a religious test, and ,so
restrict the freedom of their conscience?"
The habbla argue that reading the Bible
in the publlo schools usually leads to the
Introduction of other religious exercises al
together sectarian In character. "As soon
as we allow the Bible to be read In our
public schools," thoy say, " that moment
we open their doors to a host of other re
ligious features that, in the end affect their
They add: i
"We properly tax all the citizens of the
land for the support of the publlo school.
But we have no right to levy such a tax on
those against whom tho school In any way
discriminates. Catholics, Jews and atheists
alike contribute to the common achool fund.
But we are In duty bound so to conduct
these schools that, .parents will find no
logical objection tOuBending their children
to them. If we make-, the objection possible,
our taxation Is not .onry legally but morally
"Archbishop Ireland was right when he
said, 'If there be ft public Institution fts the
state school, supported by all the people,
avowedly for the benefit of all the people,
let It be such that aU may use it. Be there
no taxation without representation In the
enjoyments of the benefits thereof.' Fur
ther, as Jefferson put it, 'To compel a man
to furntBh contributions of money for the
propagation of opinions whio he disbelieves
Is sinful and tyrannical.
"Either, then, we must cease taxing
parents who claim that our public school
system does not give their religious beliefs
any consideration, or we must make our
schools absolutely secular. To follow the
former course Is frankly to confess that our
schools are distinctively sectarian Institu
tions. The conclusion is plain."
Educational and Physical Advftfttngcea
When summer schools were started a
few years ago It was predicted that they
would never be a success, because, as tho
attendance would be largely voluntary, it
would be ImpoMdble to find pupils willing
to give up any of their vacation. The pre
dictions, however, have failed, and at pres
ent there la not a more popular phase in
educational matters than the summer
schools. Instead of suffering from a lack
of pupils, the registrations are large and
there Is plenty of Interest and enthusiasm.
This Interest Is not confined to the aca
demic grades alone, for tho vacation
schools of the younger grades of the pub
llo "schools have proved a success every
where they have been adopted. In the pub
Ac summer sohools the curricula are largely
confined to manual training, cooking, sew
Ing and the useful arts, and It Is found that
the activity of the children which, without
restraint, might develop into lawlessness,
can be turned happily to useful work.
These schools offer to the boys and girls
a helpful, steadying Influence that counter
acts the influence of the street, where many
of them find their, only playground, and
they are receiving the heartiest indorse
ments of modern and progressive educators.
Educstors and parents have been giving
I this vacation waste, as it is called, consld
! erable attention the last few years, since
j the success of the summer schools has been
I assured, and there Is a wide belief that
young people who are going to school
should no more spend nearly a third of a
year in ldlcness than other young people
who are learning trades and professions.
While It is conceded that growing boys
and girls require more rest than their
seniors, many do not believe that they re
quire the half that Is now allotted to them
unless there Is physical weakness. A mod
erate degree of study Is advocated by many
parents who do not wish to have their
children idle so many months, and teachers
are often engaged to Instruct them a few
hours each day. The plan has met the
warm approval of all who have proved Its
The popularity of the summer school can
be uhown by the large attendance of the
summer school at the university, which at-
tracts Its hundreds of pupils, many of
whom are teachers of the public schools
who wish to become more proficient.
One of the most noticeable features of
the summer schools 1 the opportunity they
offer for special studies or work to which
time cannot be devoted during the regular
school year. To the boys or girls who can
not afford to give up many years of their
life to school work these schools, which
enable them to pursue their studies during
the usual vacation period, are real benefac
tors. The manual training schools, the art,
mimic and the business schools, all offer a
summer course, wher tha atudunt can train

point with pride to the large number of
students who avail themselves of this op
portunity every year and the fine results
the schools have achieved as a proof that
there Is a widespread need of such rhooU.

ONE WOMAN'S QUICK EYE
It Waa Too Moch for the Dealer at i
Monte Carlo and She Wi ,
Paid to Quit.
Nearly every one who has been to Monte
Carlo has heard of "Mamma" Vlaud, a
little, bent old French woman, a widow,
who has played for years.
"Mamma" Vlaud played roulette each day
from morning until night. Her beady eyes,
twitching nervously, sow nothing but the
Ivory ball as It fell Into the cell. As they
watched her staggering from the gaming
tables late at night people pitied her.
Her whole soul, her life, seemed ab
sorbed In the awful desire of winning. The
old woman at times lost heavily for her;
then she regained her losses. For. a long
time she was enabled to live and continue
her feverish pursuit of the game.
One night the old woman lost nearly all
her store. As she passed from the table
despair tn her eyes, her attention was at
tracted by another wheel. She. stopped
and bent over the table. Again and again
the wheel spun around and stopped. The
old woman's eyes sparkled. A flush suf
fused her pallid cheeks.
As she (eft the room she clapped her
hands and her laugh a shrill, mocking
Chuckle startled the gamesters as omi
"Better watch the old woman!" one of
the official lookouts told a detective. He
followed "Mamma" Vlaud to her hotel.
He listened outside of her door. There
was no alarming sound. In a short while
she extinguished her lights, and evidently
The following evening she reappeared
in the gaming Hall. Her eyes still spar,
kled, her cheeks were still flushed. With
her were several notoiius gamesters.
They approached a table. "Mamma"
Vlaud began to play.
She won. The gamblers, who had loaned
her money, watched. She played ft sec
ond time and won and a third time
and won. The gamblers looked on amaxed
and aaw the old-woman raking In thou
sands of francs.
During the evening the old woman sat
by the table, playing persistently. Her
winnings doubled, trlbled, quadrupled,
and piled up about her.
The management became alarmed. A
consultation was held. Special detec
tives were sent to watch her. Scores had
gathered about the table, looking on
breathlessly at her wonderful run of luck.
The detectives reported to the manage
ment that "Mamma" Vlaud was play
ing a certain combination of numbers
that invariably won.
One of the directors besought the old
woman to desist playing; the bank would
be broke, ha declared. She smiled and
continued to play. ,
The director offered her 150,000 to cease
playing. He doubled the figure If she
would tell him the secret of her success.
He importuned her to take 1200,000, 0,
000, only cease waging her successful
battle for gold.
Finally he offered her $300,000. Accept
ing this, "Mamma" Vlaud, gathering to
gether her fortune, told him very quietly
that In passing the table the night before
her quick eye had detected that the ball
of this particular wheel stopped at a cer
tain place at regular Intervals. The
managers examined the wheel, found that
It was out of order, and congratulated
themselves upon having compromised with
the old woman. Philadelphia North Amerl.
