necessary that there should be some

the eic-Hon. Bird S. .Coler, told the people
of Troy last week that the public schools
were hferlor to the church schools and
were 'responsible for the "absenco of tho
essentials that make for charooter build

ficiencies of the public schools the ex

inals Jn our largo cities, and tho growth

that of any other enlightened country on
The x-IIon. Bird S. Coler has discov
ered jjio fact that the church schools
"have-'the saving principle which has
been ij&mlntued from tho-public schools;"
and. In addition; that 'cntorprlslng fceh
tlematri has found In the church schools
... "a secular education which, in every re-
cent Wt, has shown superior efficiency
over Uje public-, school .education."
.Vow? the plain truth is that these gen
tlemen'; have fo.und no.-such thing. In
other jvords, they don't know what they
are tajking about.
As to nev. air. Chambers, ho should
know ihat the "homicides nnd suicides"
In the' United States do not "far outstrip"
tho rejjprd of "all other enlightened coun
tries on the globe." In suicides many
of the; European nations far exceed us;
and the percentage of homicides in this
country compares favorably, to say tho
least, with tho percentages of the old

It may be said .that It is not worth tho

Not much less amusing Is Mr. Coler's
pronunciamento regarding the "savlnff
principle" which ho professes to have
found In tho nonpublic schools.
It Is well known to all who have gone
to tho trouble to Investigate that matter
that the morality, decency and all around
civic fitness of the graduates of tho
public schools need fear no comparison
with tho graduates of other schools. Fur
thermore, It may bo said with perfect
truthfulness that the young people turned
out by the public schools do not furnish
the majority of the criminals.

Q. "You atated that 'mind created elec
trons,' which In time develop bodies. How
do you account for the fact that it is
necessary to have a body in order to havo
a mind? Ordinary common sense should
show that If there wero no bodies thero
would be no minds."
A. I print, In different porta ot the
world, that nothing exists but 'electrons,
and expect to publish this basic truth
dally until I tumble out Jit my chair, it

they want to haVe religion taught In the

established Its Institutions were wise.
They knew history, and thoy did not need
to bo told that to mix up church and

Dear Miss Fairfax: I atn a young girl
and I am very fond of u fellow of about
my own age. This fellow travels and I
do not seo much of him, but when he is
with mo he acts us though he cared for
mo. Wo did not nee each other for a
week, and when I did see him he auld hu
wuh very lonesome for me. A follow
friend of his told my girl friend that ho
cared for me. Of course. In ills truvelH
he. seed very ninny girls, but ho claims
he likes nono as well its myself, and he
rays ho wishes that I traveled with him.
The question Is, How can I find out It
he cares for me as I think ho does?
Don't attempt to hurry matters. Accept
the friendship that Is offered you and
make yourself as tweet and agreeable as
possible. When this man Is ready to
xpeak to you seriously he will do so. In
the meantime don't frighten him off with
a show of over-anxiety.

tlon of the Individual's dwelling place,
which Is taken as the center, Instead of
"Imaginary maps" are mental repre
sentations of tho bearings, or directions,
of distant places, which have become
fixed In the mind through early educa
tion, or through later Impressions, and
which aro sornotlinvs so Incorrect that
the points of the compass aro completely
reversed with respect to their proper di
rection. Prof. Trowbridge distinguishes more
than a halt dozen different types of
Imaginary maps, nnd soma of them are
One typo is that in which the possessor
of tho imaginary map always thinks of
north as being directly In front of him
no matter which way he may happen to
face- Starting with this fundamental
error he places nil the other points ot the
compass In their correct relative pos
tlpns, east being always on the right
hand and west on the left. Dut, owing
to the original mistake, he may be com
pletely turned round with regard to
Another typo Is that In which all dls
tqnt points seem to lie either toward the
east or the west. Prof. Trowbridge has
found two cases In this city In which the
persons afflicted with an imaginary map
of this kind think ot both Madrid and
Ban Francisco as lying west from New
In some cases the Imaginary map
changes with the locality In which tho
person happens to be. Thus Prof. Trow
bridge mentions a person whose Imagln-
ary map Indicates the directions of dis
tant places as Its degrees west ot their
real bearings, when he is at One Hundred
and Sixteenth street, and only 90 degrees
west when he Is at Forty-second street,
while, when he arrives Fourteenth street,
his Imaginary map disappears, or, In
other words, he conceives of directions
as they really are.
It appears to be possible to get rid of
an Imaginary map by careful education
of the eense of direction, and that being
so It behooves overyono who finds hlm
seir contused this way to take the neces
sary measures to correct his false Ideas.
In fact, about one-half of the mental
effort which Is now wasted by everybody
In consequence of erroneous notions
would bo saved, and th affairs of tho
world would run along much faster and
more smoothly. If oeonle would onlv take
ns much care of their mental mechanism
as they do ot their clocks and watches.
