The1 student who burns the midnight
oil lights the way to the head of his
chosen profession. The reason Is obvi
ous. Work spells success, and success
In any sphere of activity cannot Ue wou
without work. President Hedley of Vale
university, referring to certain phases of
college life, says the curse of the col
leges are the idle rich and tee Idle poor.
Between these two clssses He the great
body of energetic, ambitious young men,
the coming generation of brainy workers
destined to take on their shoulders the
responsibilities of tomorrow. In this
class are to be found many who are poor
In purse, but rich In grit and cettherea
tlveness. Ambition which balks at no
obstacle In the path to a college education
Is an asset worthy of the special con
sideration It receives from college fac
ulties. To these experienced observers
of student life the spirit animating one
obliged to work and earn his education
insures diligence, regularity and persever
ance. For him there is no time to
waste. Head and hand must co-operate
in utilising every hour.
Many colleges put forth special efforts
to encourage and lend assistance to en
terprising students working their way
through college. Yale has a department
devoted to that purpose, and Its report
on the methods employed and their suc
cess Is a tribute to the hustling qualities
of brainy young America.
Of the entire number of Tale students,
an average of 200 earn their entire ex
penses, while 200 more are partially de
pendent upon their efforts. The depart
ment of self-help awards tuition scholar
ships to needy and worthy young men.
and a student of the first rank who de
pends upon himself may get a scholar
ship equivalent to 8166, the entire annual
charge for tuition.
A less needy and less brilliant student
may get one amounting to 8115, while
those still less dependant receive scholar
ships equal to 876. This bureau alma

postals and letters are sent out, and it
la generally understood that from this
institution ean be obtained men of the
highest character and ability for almost
any kind ot work requiring two to three
hours a day.
Clerical work must be done In many de
partments of the college; this Is given to
students. 'Many wait on the tables, and an
average number of 160 earn their meals
by this service.- One student may conduct
a small laundry business. Many, Indeed, go
out and earn money on their own Initiative
without the asslstsnce of the bureau. Dur
ing the fall one will find students selling
statuary, pictures and bric-a-brac to more
prosperous students: some act as clothing
agents; others solicit for various industries.
A number work In the smaller clubs, wait
on tables and render service; In one year.
It waa reported, sixty-two men earned
88,237 in thla way. Then, too, many atudents

TRADF SCHOOL A It SS SKF.nF.D
Drfeete la Ike Preet Rdaeatlnaal
At the annual convocation of the uni
versity of the state of New Ttrk. held
October 81, Dr. Edward J. Goodwin, presi
dent of Packer Institute, rirroklyn. em
phasised the need for trades and industrial
schools and courses. He said. In port:
A second system of education for th.3
I'nKed States Is yet to be worked out
Whon completed It must provide for both
character development and adequate equip
ment for the battle of life. In recent times
the American school haa not kept pace
with national progress In production and
methods of doing business. The majority
of children need a different training In the
puollc schools frcnt thnt which has been
!n vogue. Both the scccnduiy and the
elementary schools sre seriously defective
In the matter of adjustment to pr"'"
conditions. While there has been sonu
broadening of the scope and improvement
of the quality of Instruction, educators
still largely Ignore the Interests of that
great and growing class of boys who are
to be wage earners, artisans and trades
men. The Indictment against our present
scheme of elementary Instruction Is that
It overburdens the memory with uninter-
esting and useless material. Something
must be done to Induce these pupils to
stay In school and finish courses that will
prepare them to perform well their parts
In ther practical affairs of life. The con
ception of trades schools. Industrial and
business courses, Is the only thing that
will do this.
There are two great reasons for the
establishment of trade and Industrial
schools and courses. The first Is the good
of the youth themselves, the second Is the
welfare of the nation In the upbuilding
of Its Industries. The system of appren
ticeship has disappeared, and, somehow,'
the public school must be made to take Its
place. We are gradually coming to recog-.
nise the Injustice of organizing our high
schools In the Interest's of the few alono
who are able to command a liberal cr semi
liberal education. The demand for some
special training for the vocations Is based
upon the Impulse to rescue unfortunate
boys from social submersion, and to afford
every wllllnaj worker a fair opportunity
What are our high schools doing today
to meet the growing demand for skilled
workers of all sorts? Practically nothing.
They contribute In New York state, for
example, less than 2 per cent of the men
who yearly enter the so-called "unlearned"
professions. There is need of skilled labor
In the development of the country's re
sources. The time for system and science
In business la here. We must meet It or
suffer disastrous consequences.
Hove the Agrlealtaral College Haa
Agricultural colleges generally had their
beginnings In the bill Introduced by Sen.
ator Morrill of Vermont, In 1862, which
some ttlme later was enacted Into law,
providing that lands be set aalde by the
government aa they had been for the con-
atructlon of the Pacific railroads, from the
proceeds o the sale of which schools
should be established for agricultural In
atructlon. It Is Interesting to note, says a
writer In Harper's Weekly, that In this
same year, when most of the white men
folk were away on southern battlefields,
the Sioux Indians of the state of Minne
sota uprose and massacred some 800 of the
frontier settlers, and In the white man's
reprisal thirty-eight of the leaders were
hanged on a single scaffold In the town of
Mankato. So . It may readily be believed
farming at' that time had not been re
duced to pedagoglo form, and little waa
done In any of the states for years except
to provide a few lectures on bucolic sub
jects, for the purpose of hanging on to
the appropriation. When at last President
Farwell organised a real course of instruc
tlon. according to the lights of the time. It
was Impossible to secure any student to
pursue It, even by dint of bribery, which
the worthy praeses Industriously tried.
Book farming was scouted and ridiculed
by every old-fashioned or "practical"
rarmer. as It Is In the ' 'way back" dis
tricts In many states even to this day. If
a boy wanted to be a lawyer or a doctor, or
even a parson, there waa aome excuse for
(hla waatlng time In atudying books, but
rarmln was "farmln'," and It wasn't
to be learned In a school. Times have
changed since then. The teachers them

secrets have been unlocked regarding the

as well as animals, the improvement of

MOTHERS AND EDUCATION
Trend of Education Since the Decline
of th Three R'm."
The whole trend of education changed
when the "three R's" ceased to be Its war-
cry, writes Myra, Kelly In Harper's Bazar
and it behooves the modern mother to real
ize this change and to adapt herself to It.
For, the school and the home are but
two agencies In the' training of the child,
two powers which Should work together for
good, and the ideal relation between the
two Is that they-shotila be as fine. It was'
very great Teache?'-who taught .that "no
man can serve two masters." Then let the
mother conform her rule and her Judgments
to the laws of her sister kingdom.
Let her hold, for Instance, that the prln
clple of self-activity la stronger than blind
obedience ever was; that emulation, as
spur to effort. Is the .abomination of deso
lation; that a sound mind in a sound body
is more to be valued than riches; that
keen eye for color and form, a steady hand
to guide a pencil or a tool, a mind alert.
eager and reasonable, a heart which feels
lta brotherhood witn an living, growing
things, a free, frank speech, a generous
nature, and an honest tongue, are In them
selves a Declaration of Independence and
a Psalm of Life.
There Is another class of parent from
whom teachers suffer much. It generally
has but one child, and that child Is gen
erally a pitiful, conscientious, earnest little
creature. In somber hair ribbons and Com
fort shoes. Very frequently this parent has
been. In aome prehistoric age, a teacher
of mathematics in a high school. Now, a
spiritualistic seance at which Messrs.
Froeble, Peztolozzi, Herbart, Locke and
Spencer should appear and explain their
theories of education, and at which Prof.
James should come from Harvard to pre
side, while Prof. John Dewey looked In to
make a few remarks, would never persuade
that parent that her child's progress was
not to be gauged by an ability to spell ob
solete words and to worry her way to com
plicated problems in long division.
"Why. she a been to acnoai every aay
for eeven mont'r.e; rain, nor enow, nor elect
haa daunted her. She haa an umbrella, a
mackintosh and a pair of rubbera. And
yet with all these aids to education she
cannot spell 'parallel.' "
