Your Summer Vacation Bf REV. THOMAS B. GREGORY. The story of Ben js mill Thompson, who was knighted 100 years ago, February 2. ITSt, by the king of England, is one of tho moHt wonderful la the annals of our country. Hut few lives In the history of the race equal It in thrilling Inter est and first-class romance. Thompson, better known us fount Rumford, was born in the village of North Woburn, Mass., March 1T"3. At 1!. young Thompson was ap prenticed to a Salem merchant Two Vars later he became a dry goods clerk In Boston, and a little later a schoolmaster at Bradford. At H Thomp son quit teaching and married a widow of twice hla atKe. Hef.ne the honeymoon was over the revolution was en the car pet, the "Sons of Liberty" treated the young bridegroom rather roughly, and be saibd for Kngluud, where he almost Im mediately vaulted into high official posi tion, his sggregsted salary smountlrig to more than ITO.Un. For a young man who bad just got through his twenties that was doing verv well indeed. Taking a trip over to Havarla, Thomp son csptlvsted tiie elector, who made him the first man In the stale. The con fident was not misplaced, fot Instantly the whole condition of affairs wss changed for the better. The finances of he country were put on a sound basis, th srmy wss rejuvensted, and the multi tude of tramps and beggars that hail for years been In'iHtlng the land, were wld out aa if by magic Thompson's work In Havana brought him to the notice of the eui'ror, who made him count of the Holy Human em pire. Jlememlierlng the little New F.ng land village where he was born. Thomp son took the title of "Count H'linford " A many-sided man was the YanKce count. In this respect our tountry has produced but one man who can le com pared with mm Henjsmin Franklin.

H. Francis, superintendent of tie I .os Angeles schools, with a boldness equal to that of Thomns I'alne, stood I efore the teachers of the nation and I iiiailo a plea for human merry snd kind ness. Ills plea was that girls should never hereafter be taught nlgehrn. I'or years, since I saw human mental misery before my eyes, of girls suffer ing over algebra, I have published over nti.I over attain my severe denunciation of the In. mo? Inflicted upon girls In teaching them aleebtn. A few of my reasons nr.- repeated: Fit st -Women absolutely and positively have no tine for algebra. Second - It is a total waste of their tlmo to compel them to study It. Third II Is known to mentalists that the teachtftr of algebra to girls Injures Ibelr tiiln. I, atid In many sad cases for life. Fourth In hundreds of serious cases, iilgebia ba permanently Injured th health of young women. Fifth--Now. sin. e mentalists lace dis covered these facts. It la a criui" to teach algebra to girls. In the name of plain, common humanity, I here now write this; Have not women, enough to suffer vt about being compelled to suffer inure-.' I wns In n second-hand book store one looking over some school books. I picked up quite n well worn aim bra, and upon ispldly turning over the pagef I ssw little (-.tacts here snd there. I knew In ait instant what they were tears. I knew, because I have seen them fall when teach Inr mathematics to young women. Further along In the book, opposite) A difficult quadratic equation, I saws these words, "Oh, tlertrnde!" I knew their fear ful Import. They were written by a girl j to a schoolmate close to her In the school loom. i'oncentrated human suffering dwells ss flresi of Inquisition in these two words. The writer was on the eve of a mental nervous breakdown from long-eonllnueil and severe suffering. 8he was lit agony of preparing for some merciless "third deirree horror" of examination. That Is, the girl who wrote. "Oh, Gertrude:" wn partially Insnne from terrific mental pain, 1 know It, for t have seen It. And now, here on this peaceful summit. In quiet and rest, here In the mountain sunshine of a July day, my own mind is barrassed with suffering to think that I was the cause during seven years of Just such Bmy. I taught high mathematical science to young women. 1 would die In poverty rather than teach algebra and higher branches to them again. Since those days 1 have talked with a number, married and gone, and not one ever had a trace or use for algebra, to say nothing of tho higher. Then the work, agony, pain and despair, nervous tortured, crushing pain of mind. Injury to brain cells snd wreck of bodily health, time and tuition feea to the col legeall these, and mors, were thrown away not merely wasted, but actually sn Injury. Cannot these facts be rammed Into the) heads of modern algebra faddists? If the utter usnlessness of algebra for girls does not affect them I will here wrlta this: To Teaehers of Algebra to Girls I here by, In the nsme of human mercy, ask you to stop. The plea of Superintendent J. H. Francis should be published In- every school district tinder the United States flag and translated Into all foreign languages. To every father and mother I present this plea: When school begins this fall mend a note to the teacher requesting that your daughters be excused from the study of algebra, and even arithmetic In It higher department. If the text book con hook contains positively useless examples: never used In a lifetime. If the teacher refuses apply to the school board. If the board refuses to omit algebra, take the girl out of school snd over to a scientific moving picture show. If the authorities force your" daughter to school to study algebra su out a writ of habeas corpus. Substitute teaching of things that by nature's Inherent right they ought and are entitled to know. The making of a beautiful, modest dressl is many millions of times greater for a. lilrl than the wearisome solution In dire pain of a quadratic that to her Is worsa than useless Injurious. Cannot our next tslns positively useless examples never used In a lifetime. I lllffereiipr. "ily on." sai.l the conscientious father. I "your punishment has hint me as mm h BS It has hurt you.
