Pussir tor tbe Translator.
Often the translator haa had to create
worda as well as alphabets. How shall tha
dweller In some low lying atoll know the
word mountain? How write "Lmb of
God" for Eskimos, who know no lambs T
"Little seal" the translator had to put tt
"Bad to eat" was as near as the trans
lator Into Mosquito could get to sin. "Nice
smell had to serve as native Australian for
frankincense. In Uganda .the translator
had to wait five years before he could
catch a word that meant plague. Then one
day he heard a man bewailing the Influx
of rats, such a "dlbebu" they were. Out
cam the note book and down went the
long sought word.
How translate the gospel Into a language
that has no words for city, marriage,
wheat, barley. In which pig, rat and dog
exhaust the soologlcal terms. In which the
word for five is "my hand;" for six "my
hand and one," and so on-
Then the revision. An American trans
lated the gospel of Matthew into Mlcmao
for the Nova Scotian Indians. After all
his long toll and faithful proofreading up
from the south came the printed word, and
he read the puisllng sentence, "A pair of
snowshoes shall rise up against a pair of
snowshoes." One letter wrong had changed
"nation" into "pair of enowshoes."
But if for some races the translator had
to create a written language, for others he
worked In fesr of a criticism more learned
than his own. The story of the Avablc
Bible, the greatest of modern translations
and the greatest of all Bibles In a non-
Christian tongue, reminds one of Aldus and
his Venice print shop.
The first task was the creation of a type
which should pass muster with the fas
tldious and artistic Mohammedan scholars,
who to this day prefer manuscript books to
printed volumes. Including vowel points
1,800 different types are necessary to print
an Arabic alphabet.
The creation of the steel punches with
which to strike the matrices to cast the
type in a form to disarm all criticism, and
their eventual casting at Lepslc, whither
they were transported overland from Sytla,
took five years. The whole work pro
ceeded at the same rate. ICevery proof was
corrected, by the one hundred leading
authorities In the world, Syrian, Arabian,
American and European.
Taak of Reading; Proof,
No Occidental can conceive the complex
ity of a page of Arabic proof, or the sight
destroying labor of reading It. Men grew
gray and lost their eyesight putting the
work Into type From the moment of Its
Inception to that of Its final electrotyplng
In ten different forms, seventy-six years
passed and the American Bible society had
spent 1100,00 on it.
The result Is the standard Arabic Bible

Hero ef the Society.
One of the heroic tale of the society's
annals is that of Bishop Schereschewsky,
vho, stricken with paralysis, pounded out
: Chinese translation with two flngera on
. :ie typewriter. For twenty year preced
g hi death he waa practically confined
) an armchair. During this time he
. anslated the whole Bible from the origi
nal Greek and Hebrew into th Easy Wenll
dialect of China.
He was unable to speak plainly enough
to be understood by a Chinese scribe. He
could not hold pen, having only one
finger on each hand under control. So he
made the translation with these two fingers
on the typewriter, and It was then copied
by .hand into Easy Wenll dialect by a
Chinese woman, Mrs. Wei., His original
typewritten manuscript is now preserved
in the. Lenox library as a monument of one
of the most stupendous literary undertak
ings ever made.
In ninety-one year of existence the so
ciety contributed 80, 43). SSI copies of the
Bible. Last year it distributed 31,000,000.

One of severs! novel adjunct to the

York is a "parental school, located on
a farm of lw acres, Between r lunnini
and Jamaica, Long Island. Th tnatlutlm
Is equipped for boys, who will hsve
the same advantages) for obtaining an edur
cation as is afforded in any of the other
public schools of New York. The sit,
buildings and equipment cost $706,498. In
dustrial education Is to be a special fea
ture of the course st the farm, and agri
culture and horticulture will be taught, as
well as manual training and the elements
of certain trades.
The buildings occupy the highest ground
on the fsrm and are built In the modified
mission style of architecture and on the
cottaaa Dlan. The Dlans provide for a
group of fifteen bulldlnga, a power house
two residence cottages for the principal
and his assistants, and eleven cottage
homes for the boys. The location of the
administration building, on an eminence
about 300 feet back from the public road,
give an opportunity for handsome lawns,
driveways end walks. This building, which
is three stories In height, will provide
offices for the superintendent or principal,
and also eleven class rooms; an assembly
hall, 00x 66 feet, and dormitories and state
rooms, besides a gymnasium and1 manual
training shops in the basement.
Directly In the rear of the administra
tion building Is a spacious campus, or
plaxa, about which the eleven cottages
face. The cottages, three of which are
now ready for occupancy, are 121 feet
long, two and a half stories In height and
divided in the middle by a fireproof wall
rvnnlng up to the roof, thus providing liv
ing apartments for thirty boys In each
half of the building. Each half of a cot
tage will be considered a unit for admin
istrative purposes, and each group of boy
will be in charge of Its own master and
matron. In the basement of each cottage
there will be a playroom, a lavatory, a
drying room and storage rooms for cloth
The first floors of the cottages are en
tered both from the playgrounds, of the
boys and the campus. On this first floor
are a living room, a dining room, a pantry,
reception room and matron' room. On
tho second floor are a dormitory for thirty
bedH, near which are Individual lockers
and a toilet room that may be reached
without going into the open hallway. Near
the boys' quarters are two rooms with
bath for the master, overlooking the dor
mltory, In the rear of which is a fire'
proof stairway Inclosed In a brick shaft
Sewing rooms and storage rooms are also
located on the second floor, and In the
attic are servants' rooms ajnt storage
room a for boys' clothing.
The parentul school Is provided for th
same class of boys who are now sent to
the present truant schools, one In East
Twenty-first street, Manhattan, and the
other In Jamaica avenue, Brooklyn, which
together accommodate less than 200 pupils.
"For the habitual truant who haa had 1m
proper guardianship the city must take the
i Place cf the parent and provide the par-
ental, . school , that tiie child may see the
benefits derived from hablta of order,

low, who Is administrator of the compul
sory education law, "and tbe truant schools
are established for this purpose."
Under the law the superintendent of
schools may commit a boy to a truant
school for a term of two years, or until
his slxteer-th birthday, If he be more than
14 years of age. When committed the
truant is under control of the Board of Ed
ucatlon for this term, but he Is paroled if
he makes a good record and It Is con
sldered wise to allow him to return to hi
home. He Is recommitted to the truant

Their Importance a Factor In Eda-
"At the present time there are no less
than 1,000 private commercial achools In the
country, with a combined enrollment of
more than 260.000 students. It Is probable
that this number is in excess of the com
bined enrollment of all the universities
and other college o fthe land."
This statement Is made by G. W. Brown,
ex-prtsldent of the National Business Edu
cators' association, a teacher and manager
of business colleges of forty years' experi
ence, to a Chicago reporter. Mr. Brown
served as manager of the business edu
cation exhibits In the World's Columbian
exposition and the Louisiana Purchase ex
position. He haa built up a substantial
system of schools of his own. In which
the annual enrollment is about (,000.
Discussing commercial colleges, their
growth and value to the business world.
Mr. Brown, says:
"Th meaning of the word, education de
pends almost entirely upon the viewpoint
of the one using it. Many very intelligent
people seem to believe that education Is
purely a normal condition and consists
wholly of theories or conceptions historic
and scientific knowledge applied to the
theories advanced by leading thinkers of
all times upon purely speculative problems
that la to say. Information, knowledge.
To others, education means any train
ing or development of the hand, the eye,
the brain, that enable one to perform with
skill th work that must be done In the oc
cupations or Industries of humanity.
"To th first of these persons the great
est practical skill of eye or hand that may
be developed by long and careful applica
tion hardly arises to the dignity of edu
cation at all, while, In view of th other,
the person who Is not able to actually
perform with skill and facility, no mat
ter what hi intellectual attainment may
be, can hardly be regarded aa an educated
"To persona of the fliat claaa tha words

"To most of th magasln and newspaper
literature upon thla subject It will be
found that but one side of this grest quea
tlon is aver presented, namely, the theo
reucai taiu lor in very good reason
that most of th writers who discuss this
thain ar college or university presidents
or professors, who minds hav been
trained to follow theoretlo channels, while
those who might present the opposite side
most ably and effectively are too busy
to write for the papers.
"It may be safely stated that th trend
In educational Interest for tha laat
twnty-f1v year ha been strongly away
from thepursly theoretical and la favor
of the practical. The Ir-v of learning I
perhaps no less than formerly, but the
Imperative demand for practical skill and
fflclency to do the work that must be
one haa greatly emphasised th necessity
of the practical side In education.
Perhaps no one festure In the educa
tional work of the country has shown more
rapid growth than what may be called the
American businesa or commercial school.
When this school first appeared It was
looked upon with much doubt, even di-
favor, by educator of the old line gen
erally. Indeed. It can be hardly aald that
even to thi day the work of the business
college of the country Is at all properly
understood or recognised by those who
view education almost entirely from the
Ide of 'letters.' But these schools hav
been recognized by the people at large
In a moat remarkable degree.
"A remarkable feature of these achool
I the fact that they are strictly private
business Institutions and receive no finan
cial aid from private endowment, church
or state. That means thst these schools
re conducted from year to year upon
their own Income. It is probable that no
ase parallel to thi can be found anywhere
else in the ctvlllxed world.
It would be unsafe to claim that these
schools ar not giving a full and fair ex
change for the money they collect from
their pupils, because If the favors were all
on one side of the bargain It would not be
long until there would be nobody else left
to enter Into these bargains but the teach
ers. That Is to say, tSe continued growth
and prosperity of these school is proof
positive that their 'service are considered
worth what they cost."

ports the Kansua , City Journal. This
statement waa made the other day by an
official of the Lawrence Institution. It Is a
beacon light of hope to the young man
who wanta a good college education, and
whoae parenta cannot pay his way. Merit

The "half-a-chanee" man is the one
who should note the fact that more than
one-half of the students at th Stat uni

and butter day by day. It takes willing
ness to stoke a furnace, sweep out build
ings, carry newspapers, milk cows, play
hostler, live simply, cheaply and without
false ostentation or, to make It still
plainer, "sew on your own buttons." If a
man has the hand and the soul he can do
it. If hid eyes can look on things that he
cannot have, and the sorrel taste does not
come Into his mouth, he will make good

A boy who set his face toward a college
sheepskin, which he must earn with his
own money, must keep but one thing in

mowed, the horse he curried, the furnace
he stoked, the newspapers he carried, are
but the means to the end. The "end" is
a college education, and an education,
Judged from its personal aide alone,
stripped of all its power to earn money in
after years, bare of Its commercial at

Two middle-aged men, both successful.

But both "fellows" made good In school,

"Wa It worth that long, hard Job of

Olcutt Payne, a prominent New York
business man and organiser for '.he Na
tional League of Republican Clubs, has
been In Omaha several days conferring
with local republican club president and
officers. A a result of his visit, Mr.
Payne, who represents the national offi
cers, ha brought about a merger of all
the local republican clubs In the Nebraska
state organisation. Including club which
belonged to the Nebraska Taft league.
The men who were so active In promoting
that have Joined In the work with sest, and
these same leadera will at once go through
Nebraska from end to end until election
furthering the league. These Include Frank
and A. V. Shotwell, C. N. McElfresh, E.
M. Stater and C. L. Waldron.
"I am particularly glad." said Mr. Payne,
discussing the lesgue. "that these men
will take an active hand, rot everyone
know what effective work th Taft league
did a year ago in securing a soil rtebraska
delegation for Taft to the republican na

"Ours Is to be a permanent organisation.
The league is as much. If not more. Inter

Taft In the present campaign. It Is or
ganized to advocate and maintain the prin

tics those who have been Indifferent. It i
desired to Incite attendance at primary
meetings, that honest and capable men
may be nominated and elected, to guard and
defend the purity of election laws.
"It Is to be permanent. The league la
now on such a basis, and there will be no
lagging of Interest between campaigns.
Among the national officers are such men
as 'Pudge' Heffellflnger, the one time great
Yale guard. He Is working all over the
country now, though his tiome Is In Minne
apolis. Then there la Bnell Smith, the na
tional organiser. Smith, who Is a former
political editor of. the Washington Post,
Is putting In eighteen hours a day at the
work, and Is achieving marvelous results.
We are trying to take advantage of the in
terest In the present campaign to organise
everywhere, and w are doing It, too.
"It Is a great movement, and will be, I
think, one of the greatest political force
ever known In' the country. There wa
such a league In the Roosevelt 'campaign,
but It waa allowed to die out In large meas
