The country life commission appointed by
the governor of the state of Washington
has outlined plans for a model country
school and community center whicn is to
be established near Spokane as an experi
ment. The plans call for ten acres of
ground, a consolidated rural school, a com
munity hall, a cottage for the teacher,
ample play ground and space for practical
work In agriculture. The school Is designed
to serve an area of thirty-nix square miles,
the most distant point being three miles.
The school house Is to be "homey" in
appearance, aa well as modern and sani
tary, a building erected within tha means
of the district and yet one to which the
farmers and their wives and children will
point with pride.
Thl new type of echooihouse, says the
commission' report, shall be supplemented
with a second building which ahall contain
a business office, library, hall, kitchen a
community ball that may be used fur the
meetings Of farmers' organizations, of
women' country clubs' and for general and
social gatherings of all kinds, he'ng pro-
Lvlded with a kitchen and other convenient
furnishings, including fittings by which
lectures with lantern slide may be given,
aa well a some gymnasium apparatus.
Aa a library thl community ball should
contain, besides the usual book in school
libraries, Information now In possession of
tb national department of agriculture and
the state experiment station. Thl infor
mation should be arranged so that It can
be easily obtained by any of the farmer
of th district. There should also be
collected her agricultural paper on file,
and any other local or general information
which may be of value to the patrons of
the school, aa well a to th scholars them
selves. A a business office there should be
collected In the community hall a list of
what I being grown for market In the
district, so that thos desiring to purchase
any of these products can learn by tele
phone the kind and qualities to be ob
tained la the district, a live stock, fruit,
grain or vegetable.
A third building demanded by tb coun
try life school is a bom for the principal
of the school, a home that can serve as
a model to the average teacher.
Primarily, the purpose cf the school 1
for the average boy one of the ninety-five
out of every 100 who institutional edu
cation, ends even before he ba finished
th secondary school. He goes oa to th
farm, into th ahop or to the office, while
the exceptional boy five out of every 100
goes through th high school, and if he
is more exceptional one or two in 100
he enter a college and studies to become
physician, a lawyer, a minister, an en
gineer or a soldier.
Th community center is to be beautiful
without being made oiuaie. and no saloon,
store, shop or other commercial institu
tion can be located within half a mile of
It boundaries. The teacher will be men
and women with red blood In their veins
and able to adapt themselves to the high
ideals of a center and school of the type
outlined, rather than technical educator.
MR. TAFT AT BstYJf H1WR,
Iaflaeaees af Girls' Colleges a Prat
ies far Paraata.
President Taft told the girls at Brya
stawr that the higher education waa good
for them, no matter what they finally
turned to. If they got married, it ought to
make better wfve and mother of them,
and if they didn't, it ought to uak them
happier and more useful In the Independent
state. All that ia true, of course. To de
selojs, train, trees' the a, and Inform th
I mind of a girl, comment Harper's Weekly.
!. J'ift as Important as to do the like for
a hoy. That Is pretty much concede J In
these Intelligent days, though many ques
tions still runaln as to the particular pro
cesses that art fitted to develop girls' minds
and how they differ from the processes
proper to train the minds of boy. That the
girls' colleges have succeeded and that the
work they do Is exceedingly valuable Is con
ceded. The women they have trained have
been heard from, and are being heard from
more every year, and they are women that
our civilization could by no means spare.
And yet the girls' colleges seem to be still
rather mora of a problem than the boys'
colleges. They ought to be, of course, for
they are newer. The whole problem of the
education of girl 1 newer. The solution
It has had so far has been to give the girls
as far as possible what Is given to the boys.
We do not find that the more thoughtful
with that solution, nor with the girls col-
lege aa they are. The colleges are good,
but their courses and Influences are not yet
accepted anything like so generally aa the
best thing for gtrls who can get them, a
the processe of the boys' college are ac
cepted us the bent thing for boys. We find
larents weighing very carefully what their
girls might pet at college against what It
would be possible to give them at home. We
find parent considering, not without anx
iety, what they will get back if their girl
goes to college.
Tbe liking for domestic women ia atill
prevalent, and so I th notion that college
girls, after four years of Independent life,
may take domestication hard. It 1 true
that domestication can be overdone. Nev
ertheless, there Is some current disappoint
ment In the working and results of the
women's colleges, some feeling that there
are losses to offset what girls gain in
them; some feeling that they do not yet
combine all the advantages of the best col
leges with those of the best boy' colleges.
STANDARDS OF I.IVISO.
Efficiency aad Laisry la University
If "efficiency" were the object of educa
tion, as it so clearly la In Germany, and
as it so clearly ought to be here, it would
be recognized at the outset that frugality
was conducive to it and luxury hostile,
says Scribner't Magaxine. In England,
Froude said that university education
fitted a man extremely well for tlie grade
of gentleman, but for no other that he
knew of. And In that Oxonian classic, "Tom
Brown," we find one of the hero's heroes
telling him, "Three year at Oxford, my
boy, will teach you something of what
rank and money count for, if they teach
you nothing else." That lesson Is one
which, of all lessons, should In America
be postponed to a postgraduate course, and
not Inserted, either a compulsory or a
elective. In th undergraduate curriculum.
Thing are by no mean a badly off with
u yet In thi respect aa they are with the
Engl&b. There is no American Institution
of learning as yet In which a Rhodes
scholarship would not snable its holder to
get tho full benefit, of the Institution, soci
ally aa well a schoiaatlcally and athleti
cally. If any American undergraduate
snouid complain to his parent that he
"could not live" on that allowanoe, the
parent. If he had any sens at all, would
promptly withdraw him from that seat
of learning. The sense of humor has,
auiung inner aeuniuons, Deen defined a a
enae ot proportion. And the sense of
humor on which we pride ourselves ought
to Buffic to prevent tbe spending by any
youth, engaged In the preparation for the
battle of life, of more than three or four
times the yearly amount that he could
reasonably expect to earn In the open mar
ket after his preparation was completed
and he had entered the battle. And, moat
certainly. It is not good that different
"standards of living" depending on dif
ferent amounts of "private means," should
be encouraged or even tolerated by the
fatuity of an American university. A
place of education is the last place In
which there is room for a set of social
distinctions baaed on money.

thing snap, and a moment later saw the
Immense rod of steel lashing th air. After
It had gone on perhaps a hundred yards

grade and were approaching a sharp turn
In the track, and Luu .decided on a des

The spinning rod had smashed the cab and
