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. the honeymoon

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

Thompson's work In Havana brought
him to the notice of the eui'ror, who
made him count of the Holy Human em

son took the title of "Count H'linford "
A many-sided man was the YanKce

4 omhlncd in one : iw.-ch by an educator
befoi-e the National K.lucatlonal associa
tion at is session in St. Paul, Minn.
.1. 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
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
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
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
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
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.
