Benjsniln Franklin's bequest of one thou
sand pounds sterling to the city of Boston
In 1T90, and held In trust for 11 years, until
It amounted to tm.Wl. has been devoted
to the erection, of a magnificent Industrial
school, the Franklin t nlon. in which the
young mechanic may be trained In practical
handicraft. Andrew Carnegie donated
tfO.cro a an endowment fund.
The new structure Is locsted in the geo
graphy al heart of the city. It Is a flve
atory building of steel and concrete, with
outer walls of Bedford stone and brick,
following the colonial style of Franklin
uy. Its length of lWt feet snd width of
1C4I feet give ample room for the compre
hensive courses of study to be undertaken.
The decorative feature have been well
chosen. Houdin' celebrated bust of Frank
lin greets one at the entrance. Carved bs
relifs protrylng the stspie product of
Massachusetts and Pennsylvania are sjr
mounted by the coat-of-arm of the Com
monwealth. Wrought-lron gates, the pro
duct of artist and artisan, are used effec
tively. A series of frler.es Illustrate Frank
lin's majiy chstaiterlstlcs, while several
of hi maxims, selected from "Poor Rich
ard's Almanac," are inscribed on panel
about the lobby.
The utilitarian features of the building
Include a lecture hall, with a gallery, of a
seating capacity of 1.0UC, laboratories for
every brsnrh of mechanics, thirteen claM
rooms, a library, etc., all equipped with the
latest devices. Instructors selected from
leading manufacturing industries will train
the pupils In the practical aide of mechani
cal drawing: machine detail. Which means

kinds of machinery; mechanism, or the
problems of pulleys, csms, gears, t-tc; arch

with special reference to Important com
mercial products; steam engines nd boil
ers, dealing with their construction, nse,
snd heat generation; Industrial electricity;
and the common application of mechanical
principles. The courses are open Only to
those who are employed during the day.
To all such youths and adults, of the en
tire country, this splendid Institution and
the opportunities that It affords are avail
able by the payment of an insignificant
yesrly fee from M for residents to $12 for
The history of the bequest Is an Interest
ing story in Itself. Franklin followed the
precepts of his own wise saws and aphor
isms giving encouragement to virtue and
progress, recorded In his "Poor Richard'
Almanac," and which are familiar to every
schoolboy. Surely, he had In mind tils
famous maxim, "A penny saved I penny
earned," when, with charactertstlo humor,
he devised that the gift of 1.000 should be
saved and allowed to accumulate for 100
years. One thousand pound sterling was
then a fortune. He stated in hi will that
the principal and Interest at the end ef 100
years would probably amount to about tt&O..
000, of which 1600.000 wa then to be used
and the balance, about H65.000, allowed to
accumulate for another 1U0 years. He fig
ured that, at the end of the second KO
years the amount would be about 120,806.000.
In making the bequest, he stated that It
was in recognition of financial aid given
by his Boston friends which enabled him
to begin business In Philadelphia, and
which was the foundation of his fortune
That young men in similar need might have
the advantage of a helping hand, and be
come "serviceable, to their country," he de
vised that from the date of it acceptance
small sums of the principal should, be
losned. at i percent Interest, to young mar
ried apprentices of Boston. The trustees
who were named by him were to be the
selectmen, with the three ministers of the
oldest Congregational, Episcopalian and
Presbyterian churches. The trust has been
administered all these years with Boston'
usual fidelity and success. In 1799 Boston
had a population of 1R.320. Today metropol
itan Boston, which Includes several closely
populated communities, hss a population of
more than 1,000,000.
Attempt to Compel Attendance
A ruling ha been made by the Depart
ment of Education of New Jersey that the
attendance of pupil at religious exercises In
public school must be entirely voluntarily.
This ruling Is the outcome of a six month'
controversy between Arthur Watt of River
Bflge, N. J., and the school board of River
Mr. Watts, who ha hi opinion of relig
ious exercises and keeps his own counsel,
sends two daughters to the River Edge'
school. One Is 7 and the other U year old. I
When the board authorized opening exer
cise consisting of reading from the Bible
and the repeating of the Lord's Prayer Mr.
Watt obtained permission of the principal
for his children to remain In the classroom
while the exercise were going on In the
It Is said that the envy of the other chil
dren and the consequent growth of absen
teeism at prayer caused the practice of the
Watt children to be brought to the notice
of the board. Mr. Watts then had to face
the alternative of compulsory attendance
at the exercises or the exclusion of his
children from school.
Mr. Watt urged his case before the board
and the contest dragged on until the dos.
of the spring term. Meantime the children
had lost two weeks of school.
During vacation nothing waa dine, but
when River Edge school opened two weeks
ago Mr. Watt galn entered hi children
This time Instead of remaining In the as
sembly room they arranged to arrive ten
minutes late. The board, however, saw
through this strategy and notified Mr.
Watts that his children must come on time
or not at all.
Declaring that be would go to law If
necessary, Mr. Watt took the controversy

steps for Protection of Physical Wei- !

In the July number of the North Amer
ican Review, William H. Allen, secretary
of the Bureau of Municipal Research,
enumerates ten steps for the protection
nd physical welfare of srhool children,
which constitutes program that I Im
mediately practical In all states.
1. A thorough physical examination of
all children of all schools, public paro
chial and private.
i. Notification of pa.rents and family
physicians as to children needs. That
ten of thousands of records of defects
piled up st health headquarters do not
help children has been conclusively proved
In New York.
3. "Follow tip'' notices with visits to in
form and persuade parent to correct de
fect and to remove their causes.
4. Enforcement of existing laws and se
curing proper authority, where this is
now lacking, to compel obstinate parents
to lake necessary steps.
5. ' Periodic re-examlnation of school
children during school life.
6. Physical examination of children
when applying for work certificates.
7. Use of Information gained regarding
physical effects of bad living conditions
to secure enforcement of health and tene
ment law-3, restriction of hours of labor,
control of dangerous trades, prevention of
8. Bchool buildings and school curricu
lum should be so constructed and so man
aged that they cannot themselves either
produce or aggravate physical defect.
9. The effect of chool environment and
school requirements upon the child Should
be constantly studied. .Teachers should
be examined and re-examined for their
vitality, which exercises an Important In
fluence upon that of the pupil.
10. Hygiene should he so taught that
children will learn their health right
and how to maintain them.
