They Are An Teat of Knowledge--
Ohjeftlons of a Prominent Educator.
i At the last meeting of the State I Teacher^' Association and of principals j of high schools,Superintendent Gilbert of the St. Paul schools Uiscussed “Grade j examinations and I’lomotions in Our i Public Schools.” lh* took strong J grounds against tilt* current systems of examination. The daily working sys-| tr ill ms well as written examinations I earn** in for his censure. The principlt ! in each Wise. he said, *e<j ialiy vicious.
: The attem pt to estimate the knowledge ! of a pupil in numeral is an absurdity. One might just as w< talk of bushels of knowledge.
“My objection to examination as a basis of promotion,” lie continued, “is twofold. Iii tile first place it is opposed to all modem theories of education. The system of promotions by examination is baw si on the lying old proverb that knowledge is power. The seoond objection is practical Examination dots not in fact test knowledge. It is thus both false in theory and in tic*-."
The speaker made great sport of tile examination as it is generally conducted. Iii the place of it lie would substitute a system of frequent recorded judgments by tile teacher! in the progress of the pupil.

Methodist Cob far once in Footed for Prohibition.
At the recent Benaion of tho Methodist Conference the report of the com im tee*? on temperance declared that uncompromising hostility was the only attitude for tho Christian rim reb towards the liquor traflic, and that the Methodist church of Minnesota would never l>e satisfied with anything short of constitutional prohibition. High Ii cense would never be accepted; one saloon in tile state was one too many. It called upon temperance men to labor for Hie election to the legislature of men who would vote to submit a prohibition amendment to popular vote. The Dakotas were congratulated, and jhe W. C. T. I ', endorsed. An amendment was added declaring that “we will support no party that favors high license.*

Hon. John L. (tibb" Favors Chicago for th** Columbus Fair.
lion. John L. Gibbs, of tho state railway 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 thoroughly alive to the importance of having it at Chicago. “The people of the West want it there. It is Ute 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 should be careful that their children do not contract colds during the fall or early winter months. .Such colds weakens the lungs and air passages, making the child much more likely to contract other colds during the winter. It is this succession of colds that causes catarrh and bronchitis, 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 few days and leave the respiratory organs strong and healthy.

convulsed with laughter, and the next sober and quiet and completely carried away with the eloquence of the speaker. Hut 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-, era! Assembly of 18814 in reaffirming its i deliverances of 1885 and 1888, recommending ministers and congregations ' to persevere In vigorous efforts until laws shall be enacted in every state and I territory, entirely prohibiting the I traffic;
First, it has brought up those former I deliverances to the level of the ques- ' tion as it stands to-day.
Second, that we accept its action in the premises as eminently intelligent. I Christian and Scriptural.
I bird, 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 definitely alongside of our brethren of : other Christian denominations in this i great battle for the complete prohibition 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-1 ist and didn't want the Presbyterian church to appear to tail in after all the other denominations. Dr. (iregory proposed 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 Richter, of Royalton, to his feet with a bound. He protested in a fiery little speech against mentioning any party at all. Rev. John Woods, who was evidently a good Republican, rose excitedly. and objected with all the emphasis he could summon, inasmuch as any line of policy except prohibition was deprecated by the second resolution, 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 amendment was carried by a rising vote of 48 to 15, and the matter was finally settled by the unanimous adoption u*f the following, introduced by Dr. Burrell, as a substitute for the original resolution:
That we maintain our position iii line with other churches of Jesus Christ in earnest advocacy of prohibition, 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 resolution. 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 Hie fourth resolution, as finally agreed to, renounces any affiliation with any political party, including, of course, the Frohibi-tion party. Thus onr Presbyterian brethren declare themselves prohibitionists but not for or against any political party; they propose to go it alone.
THE THRESHERS’ CAMPAIGN.
They Take the Farmer* by Ntorm---The Kina Rooster of the Crew'—The Raid They Slake on the Virtual)*— -A Jolly Net of Boy)*, and It Im Fun to Have 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 postpones 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 file. At meals he sits at the head of the table and proves his ability to feed the machine by devouring 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, Eli,” every 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 appointment. A feast is prepared that for variety and abundance would astonish old Nebuchadnezzar. (Think that was the name—chance it anyhow.) The crew  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 neighborhood to feed a tramp on after a steam thresher has passed through. The boys are a jolly set and have their fun. Two weeks more and the campaign will be over. It has been a magnificent season for their business, and the proprietors retire rich.
