So come rteht alone; to the BIG BOSTON T J j i They Arc Xo Tent or Knowledge--- of a Prominent Educator. At the last meetiin? of the State j Teachers'Association and of principals 1 of high (filbert of the St. Paul schools mscussed''Grade Examinations and Piomotiousin Our Public Schools." lie took strong grounds against the current systems of examination. The daily working sys- tem as well as written examinations rarne in fpr his censur.-. The principle in each rase, he said, is equally vicious. The attempt to estimate the knowledge of a pupil in numerals is an absurdity. One might just as weii talk of bushels j of knowledge. I "My objection to examination as a basis of I.e continued, ''is twofold. In the first place it is opposed to all modern theories of education. The system of promotions by examina- tion is based on the h ing old proverb that knowledge is power. The second objection is practical Examination dogs not in fact test knowledge. It is thus both false in theory and in prac- tice." The speaker made great sport of the examination as it is generally conduct- ed. In the place of it lie would substi- tute a system of frequent recorded judgments by the teachers in the pro- gress of the pupil. PRESBYTEKIAMSJI A.M) PROHI- BITION.

At the recent session of the Method- ist Conference the report of the com- mittee on temperance declared that uu- compromising hostilit} was the only at- titude for the Christian church towards the liquor traffic, and that the Method- ist church of Minnesota would never be satisfied with anything short of constitutional prohibition. High li- cense would never be accepted: one sa- loon in the state was one too many. It called upon temperance men to labor for the election to the legislature of men who would vote to submit a pro- hibition amendment to popular vote. The Dakotas were congratulated, and W. C. T. U. endorsed. An amend- ment was added declaring that l-we will support no party that favors high license." TV timers of the Standard's Premiums. The STANDARD'S premiums offered at the fair have been awarded as fol- lows: Daniel Hurd, copy of the STAN- DARD one year and Dr." Foote's book, for being the oldest continuous subscriber to the STAND- AKD, he having taken it regularly since it was first issued, in July 1857; iliss EmmaFlindt, a copy of the STANDARD and of the Echo, for making best five pounds of roll butter, and the mother of Victor Crouch wins the STANDARD for a year for exhibiting the heaviest baby under one year of age. Xo award was made by the judges under the of- fer on corn. We take much pleasure in bestowing these premiums, and we hope the for- tunate competitors way live to win and enjoy as their just awards the best blessings of life. Hon. John L. Gibhs Favors Chicago for the Columbus Fair. Diilnth Sews. Hon. JohnL. Gibbs, of the state rail- way and warehouse commission, was a visitor in the city yesterday. I had a little chat with him on the subject of the world's fair, and found him thor- oughly alive to the importance of hav- ing it at Chicago. "The people of the West want it there. It is the natural place for a national or an international gathering. The people who cross the ocean will not object to a pleasant trip of less than a thousand miles inland when it affords them a view of this country, all are so interested in seeing. Congress will take that view too, and Chicago will be the place chosen. Parents' Duty. Parents should be careful that their children do not contract colds during the fall or early winter months. Such v olds weakens the lungs and air pass- ages, making the child much more likely to contract other colds during the winter. It is this succession of colds that causes catarrh and bronchi- tis, or paves the way for consumption. Should a cold be contracted, loose no time but cure it as quickly as possible. A fifty cent bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy will cure any cold in a few days and leave the respiratory organs strong and healthy. For sale by Parker Briggs. After the Fair.

A Meusation in the Dr. Irwin fp the Finally Straddle the Party IwHue. From the Minneapolis Tribune re- port of the meeting of the Presbyterian Synod we extract the "The sensation of the day now oc- curred. Rev. Dr.Irwin, of Albert Lea, chairman of the committee on temper- ance, read a report which, for elo- quence, wit and good sound sense could scarce be surpassed. The ers around the outer row of pews under the gallery lost no time in taking seats, and the large audience was all attention. One moment they were convulsed with laughter, and the next sober and quiet and completely carried away with the eloquence of the speak- er. But the climax was reached when Dr. Irwin wound up with the following resolutions, which the committee recommended for adoption: Resolved, That inasmuch as the Gen- eral Assembly of 1889 in reaffirming its deliverances of 1885 and 1888, recom- mending ministers and congregations to persevere in vigorous efforts until laws shall be enacted in every state and territory, entirely prohibiting the traffic; First, it has brought up those former deliverances to the level of the ques- tion as it stands to-day. Second, that we accept its action in the premises .is eminently intelligent. Christian and Scriptural. Third, that as loyal Presbyterians we must therefore work on the lines of Prohibition and not of regulation of the traffic. Fourth, that we range ourselves defi- nitely alongside of our brethren of other Christian denominations in this great battle for the complete prohibi- tion and overthrow of the business of drunkard making. The first three resolutions were adopted one at a time without opposi- tion, but when the fourth was reached there was a breeze. Dr. Burrell claimed that he had always been a Prohibition- ist and didn't want the Presbyterian church to appear to tail in after all the other denominations. Dr. Gregory pro- posed as an amendment the resolution adopted by the last general assembly to the effect that the resolution be not construed as advocating any political party. This brought Rev. Lewis Rich- ter, of Royalton, to his feet with a bound. He protested in a fiery little speech against mentioning any party at all. Be v. John Woods, who was evi- dently a good Republican, rose excit- edly, and objected with all the empha- sis he could summon. Inasmuch as any line of policy except piohibition was deprecated by the second resolu- tion, and as one of the great political parties stands for high license, he was down on the amendment. A motion to table both resolutions and amend- ment was carried by a rising vote of 48 to 15, and the matter was finally set- tled by the unanimous adoption of the following, introduced by Dr. Burrell, as a substitute for the original resolu- tion: That we maintain our position in line with other churches of Jesus Christ in earnest advocacy of prohibi- tion, with the distinct understanding that no deliverance of this body shall be construed as favoring any particular political party." It will be seen that the third resolu- tion, which was adopted, is opposed to regulation, and therefore high license, and thus antagonizes the position of the Republican party as well as that of the Democratic, and yet the fourth resolution, as finally agreed to, renoun- ces any affiliation with any political party, including, of course, the Prohibi- tion party. Thus onr Presbyterian brethren declare themselves prohibi- tionists but not for or against any political party; they propose to go it alone. The J. W. SMITH COMPANY, WE HAVE IN STOCK NOW A FULL LINE OF THE THRESHERS' CAMPAIGN. They Take the Farmers by Storm--- The King Rooster of the Rail! They Make on the Vlctnals-'-- A Jolly Set of Boj s. and It Is Fan to HBTC them Around. Sleepy Eye Herald. The most interesting business going on this month among the farmers is threshing. The advent of a steam thresher in the neighborhood post- pones all other business, for it takes all the able-bodied men within two miles to run one. The fireman sits up all night with his machine and begins to toot his whistle about 5 o'clock. The feeder is the big man of the crew; he is held in great veneration. He is calculated to be a little smarter than the rank and tile. At meals he sits at the head of the table and proves his ability to feed the machine by devour- ing everything within his reach. He is the only man that is permitted to come to the table without washing his face. There is no place yet discovered around a steam thresher for a lazy man. It's "get there, eviry blessed minute from start to finish. A threshing crew live on the fat of the land. The farmer's wife commences cooking nine days before the appoint- ment. A feast is prepared that for variety and abundance would astonish old Nebuchadnezzar. (Think that was the it anyhow.) The crew [IS] are always hungry, they can eat more in ten minutes than any other set of men on earth. There ain't enough of victuals left in the neigh- borhood to feed a train p on after a steam thresher has passed through. The boys are a jolly set and have their fun. Two weeks more and the cam- paign will be over. It has been a magnificent season for their business, and the proprietors retire rich. A Hale Old Man. A hale old man, Mr. Jag. Wilson of Allen's Springs, 111., who is over sixty years of age, says: "I have in my titne tried a great many medicines, some of ixcellent quality; but never before did I find any that would so completely do all that is claimed for it as Chamber- lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhcee Remedy. It is truly a wonderful medi- cine." For sale by Parker Briggs. Haying taken the shop formerly occupied by C.
