Their Only Happy hours those spent with their teachers. Henry George s pathetic Story the London Board schools. Loudon july 4-passing Over Blac friars Bridge and pushing along Road for several blocks one comes the left to Charlotte St., and the further Comer to the firm ironmongers Telly. Son amp Jones Whoso Blum Trade a dog eating out a pot jutting out at the Corner Over the sign was made celebrated Tho world Over by Charles Dickens. A tile dog looks so fat and Slick and Tho pot so wrote he a that the passing hungry lib Man gazers were like to to moved with turning into narrow Charlotte St. And moving eastward parallel with the River what that dog and pot meant to Dickens i3 St once this District embraces Tho Southwark slums. It was the part London in which Dickens lived the first cruel years his Hie and whence he afterwards Drew Many his pictures and characters. By frequently inquiring. I found my Way yesterday morning through the Southwark District to the Orange Street Board school a Large. Dull yellow Brick building fronted by a High Dull. Yellow Brick Wall. This was Tho first the schools opened by the London school Board in the poorer parts this City., the school is divided into three divisions an infant division which mrs. W Ayne is head mistress a boys division which air. J. Stanton is head master and a Girts division which mrs. E. M. Burgwin is head mistress. Mrs. Wayne has been teaching there for 12 Vears and . Stanton has had Long service but mrs. Burgwin is the Pioneer Board school teacher in the slums Lon curriculum Tho London Board schools is similar to that Tho elementary Public schools the United states Aud Tho methods pursued similar though i believe slight advantages claimed Here in a few respects. Mrs. Burgwin with a just Pride conducted me Over Lier school and gave exhibitions the proficiency the various standards classes. Coming As they did from the very a mud Sills the children Sang Well read Well wrote Well and showed a ionic Liat remarkable aptness for figures. But the appalling thing forcing itself news attention w As the poverty the children. La appeared in their soiled and forlorn garments their unkempt hair their scars but More than All in their serious Sallow faces so shockingly strange in these islands where Ruddy Cheeks universally Given to healthy childhood. A Quot we teach our girls to be neat and clean said mrs. Burgwin Quot but the poor Little souls cannot do much. They cannot get away from the terrible conditions in which they and then she told me things that Drew a fearful picture. A eighteen years ago a said she substantially. Quot i commenced this work without a thought the world suffering it would open to me. I found at the Start that most the children had something the matter with them diseased eyes had hearing consumptive lungs weak heart some other deep seated trouble and As for fatalities they were fearfully frequent. Quot i was prepared to find poverty but i was shocked at these other troubles and still More shocked at the Savage manners the children and the unutterable oaths even the smallest girls. We at once perceived that we could not commence with them As we commenced with other children in better circumstances. There was no Home inline no to help us. We had to begin by teaching them Many the simplest and commonest words which seemed to be wholly unknown to them a careful examination showing that the unschooled Cockney living in these poorer quarters uses Only 50 words outside nouns. Quot a thing to noticed Early was the absence songs Iii their play they had a game and it scorned to be their Only game which greatly puzzled us at first. They called it Mother and without letting them know it we watched them closely and observed that one child played Tho part Mother another that father another that oldest son and others represented More children. The fatties would come reeling along and catching hold Tho Mother and Small children beat them soundly until grappled by the oldest son. All Tho while there Wras screaming and shouting. A course we stopped the playing Mother and father at once. But it told a terrible Story. Quot the older girls we found were in Many instances kept at Homo and deprived schooling to mind babies. So we told them to come to school and bring the babies with them. We established a Cratch for the babies and Hart a nurse to look after them. In this Way babies came to us that were but a few months old. We watch Over them and keep them with us till the time when the Law allows them to be taken away to be put to work. A emr. Stanton in charge the boys division has twins who 7 years old and have been coming Here for six years pretty Little Bine eyed Fellows with yellow curls. I had a girl 13 who had been coming 12 years. But the most dreadful discover was tile hunger among the children. Their Pale faces and stunted forms were due we found More than anything else to Lack food. An appalling number came to school without having had any breakfast and went Home again perhaps not to have any dinner. We gathered funds in various ways and fed As Many them As needed it wholesome porridge and bread and in the evening As the Case might be provided dinners something better. This feeding hungry children goos regularly and. For that matter it has become a necessary part the educational system in Many the Board schools throughout this country. Quot for nearly 20 years we have been teaching children in these slums to read and write and figure but what is the use it All if they cannot live decently sofar As i can see schooling has made Little change in this. The Plain truth is there is Moro than an educational question involved. Beneath is a soc Al questions the question How the people to live. It is for the politicians to say How they will Settle that. But one thing is certain we with this schooling kindling a spirit Independence in these people in tile slums that must very soon find a vent in one Way this Orange St. School taken altogether doubtless presents the worst phase poverty in All tile 440 Board schools in London but there Many More that follow close after. At the office the school Board i Learned that there were March 24. 870 pupils the Roll the Orange St. School and that the weekly Penny fee 394 who were too poor to nay had to be remitted. On the same Date there wore 448,107 the Rolls All the Board schools London and fees had to to remitted in 98,085 cases showing the wide extent poverty anti the necessity the Bill now passing though parliament remitting fees. Two year.-, ago a spacial committee reported to the school Board to the effect that a during the year the number children in average attendance in the schools Tho Bourd was 341,495,�?� and Quot those 43,888, 12.98 per cent., returned As habitually attending school in want the committee also reported information received from the school boards Birmingham Gateshead Glasgow Liverpool and a amp Chester showing that Tho same condition things prevailed throughout the kingdom. Many children cannot come to the tables attend school until they get a Little assistance in the Way clothing. As i w rite there recurs to me the words one the songs i heard at the Southwark school and there comes the sound Low voices and Tho scene the uncouth ragged soiled garments the unkempt scars and the pitiful Little faces faces that even now brighten and glow at the picture in the son Little girl with fairy feet a whither you straying Over the Hill and Down the Hill Aud in the Meadows playing a in a a Little fairy girl through the Meadows straying with my Basket my von see in be been a Maying. Henry a Kobe Jai. York detectives material assistance in working out difficult said Tho proprietor the it. St. Vincent laundry yesterday. Quot nearly every one our patrons has his name his cuffs and collars but Thoro some who go by certain in arks and numbers. These Marks copied by each american laundry Man and the own Eros name placed opposite the Mark so you will see that by searching through Tho laundries Many a necessary link Lias been added to the chains evidence. A we have Many requests not to Mark the owner s articles with his name. This happens when a Man is leading a double life and who fears that a fictitious mane might excite his wife a suspicions. To avoid having collars marked thus Many these it my individuals go to chinese laundries to have their work Crisp to bus speaker. Laundries and Good morals. New York Herald a it May Surprise you to hear that we ramen sometimes Render the new new York delegation will probably make him their Choice. Washington july prominent Tann Canyite who generally knows what is going in the inner circles that organization told Tho writer in new York yesterday that representative Crisp Georgia would he the speaker the next House. He added that while the now York delegation had held no meeting the subject it was generally understood that Crisp was their Choice and while there were members the delegation who were favourably disposed toward the other candidates yet As Crisp had a majority the members he would he Able to secure the solid support new York in caucus. It has generally been believed that Crisp is Tho Choice tammany but that he can count Tho solid support new York As this enthusiastic tammany it says is very doubtful. A new yorker who was a member the last House and who is known to favor representative Mcmillin Tennesee for speaker is quoted As saying a it is not True that the new York delegation has settled upon Crisp any other Man for speaker. In the first place the delegation have never met to discuss the subject and what is Moro important there at least l l them who favor the selection . Mcmillin. I know it is said that tammany Hall favors . Crisp but who Speaks Tor tammany Hall no one in this matter. Of course As a new yorker i should like to sen Tho delegation United and perhaps it May come to that. But at present this has not been accomplished. There individual delegates who favor Mcmillin Crisp. Wilson and Mills and just about in that order. No i do not think it at All Likely that the delegation will unite upon any new York not a candidate yet contingencies might arise when chief Justice Fuller would accent. Washington july 19.�?for several months past the name chief Justice Melville w. Fuller has been mentioned in Many papers As a possible presidential candidate in Caso . Cleveland is not the nominee the party and a Western Man should to selected us the Standard bearer. Chief Justice Fuller would not in any Way attempt to antagonize . Cleveland a prominent Chicago Man now Here in talking about the matter said Quot there is going to be a substantial Union the divergent wings tile democratic party in Chicago which Means that we will control the City in the future. But there is More Back it than that. It Means that Illinois is going to have a candidate for president in the person chief Justice Melville w. Fuller one her most illustrious citizens. A chief Justice Fuller has always been popular with the better class politicians and thoroughly liked by a the boys As Well to Lias conducted campaigns As the chairman Hie executive committee has spoken frequently in Chicago As Well As All Over the state during political canvasses and while he never was a candidate for any office yet he has been a prominent figure in politics. A since his appointment As chief Justice he has apparently dropped politics but he is the same sturdy Democrat that he Ever was. Not Long since i had a talk with him but he emphatically declared that he was not and would not be a candidate for office. Quot his ambitions he said were satisfied. To had the office that he regarded As the one Hest suited to him and one in which to could do the most Tor his country. He was evidently sincere. A notwithstanding this however there is a determination in Chicago among Strong men to place his name before Tho democratic National convention in certain contingencies and he would be forced to accept. Of so Illinois would leave Tho Republican column for Silver in the Campaign. Harrison will stand about the same footing As Cleveland. Washington july 19. free Silver Plank in the Ohio platform has aroused any amount discussion in Washington among the politicians and from the War the matter is being argued hero it looks As if free Silver would be a greater Issue in the next Campaign than the Tariff. Of course the proximity Washington to now York Boston and Philadelphia makes the average washingtonian reflect the Eastern View the Money question but the Western men realize the importance the Issue and the weight it will have in the Campaign. It is conceded All sides that the next Congress will pass a free Silver Bill and that the president will promptly veto the measure when it is presented to him for his signature. Whether Congress can pass the Bill Over the veto is a question Only minor interest. The veto will be written As a Campaign document and will be largely circulated by the republicans in the anti Silver states and especially in new York where it is believed it will have the most effect. If . Cleveland however should be the democratic candidate the veto would lose much its Force As . Cleveland a Well known attitude the currency question is identical with that . Harrison a and As any free Silver Bill must be passed by the joint votes democrats and republicans the republicans could claim nothing for . Harrison which cannot be granted to . Cleveland. If Cleveland is the candidate Tho situation will be greatly simplified As while his position Silver is perhaps not entirely acceptable to some the Western and Southern states his personal popularity in the West and the Confidence the East has in his sound judgment and conservative course would ensure him the support both sections and no other Man who is now prominently mentioned can command this support As he can. Apropos presidential candidates an interesting Rumor is that gov. Hill Lias come to the conclusion that he cannot Hope for the nomination and that tile Best thing he can do is to control the new York delegation. It is said that if he sees a Chance he will turn new York Over to senator Gorman always the supposition course that there is enough opposition in Tho convention to Cleveland a nomination to make a contest possible As Well As practicable. Brandy stills in operation. Apples and peaches abundant and the output Brandy will be Large. Baltimore md., july 19.�?for the first time in four five years All the fruit Brandy stills the Eastern Shore Maryland will to in full operation this summer. Apples and peaches Tho fruits used and there will be an abundant crop both. There about too registered stills the Peninsula Between the Chesapeake and the Delaware Bays. More them will be in operation this year than at any time within 20 years. At no time recently has the business been profitable because the shortness the Apple and peach crops interfered with the Brandy material. This year the Early summer Apple crop is very heavy and the distillers Quick to take advantage Tho Low prices to begin their work. H. C. Dodson the Deputy collector internal Revenue for the division comprising the Eastern shores Maryland and Virginia is Busy already with Tho official work bonding Aud starting the distillers. In Dorchester Aud Wicomico counties distillers began work the Early summer apples a week ago. This is Early for the distillery season. Usually they do not begin work before August. It is quite certain there not 50 Gallons Home made fruit Brandy in the Market the Peninsula and Tho output this year will find an empty Market. Fruit Brandy pays the United states government a tax 90 cents a gallon and the business the governments part is so thoroughly systematized that an escape from the payment the tax a single gallon by any distiller is impossible unless there is collusion Between him and the government officer. It is probable that 20.000 Gallons Apple and peach Brandy will be made this year the Peninsula which a tax 818,000 will be paid into the United states Treasury. Business and crops.

Quot a comparison with last year shows that 186 report it in better condition. 88 not so food and 72 about the same.

We have seen no evidence that these locusts will eat the leaves potato plants. Reports agree that the eggs from which wore hatched these armies were deposited last fall by the locusts which flew into this area in August and september from the South and it is a reasonable hypothesis that Tho present generations upon acquiring wings will return southward toward the original habitation their parents. Big Corn sugar Trust. American glucose will hereafter be controlled by englishmen. Chicago july 14.�?american glucose will hereafter be controlled by an English Syndicate. The contract by which the principal glucose houses were purchased was closed yesterday. Tho Syndicate it is thought will attempt to control the american glucose Market As Well.

Olympia Tribune a strange scene was witnessed the Northern Pacific trestle at the water works. The trestle is about 600 feet Long and 55 feet High. Under it is the Union Pacific roadbed. Tho ties about eight inches apart and evenly distributed Tho entire distance. At an Early hour the attention a dozen people was attracted by a Large sorrel horse which had walked along the trestle from Tho South and was unaware the danger ahead. He was unable to turn around and had fully 500 feet yet to travel. The spectators expected Ever moment to see the animal dashed to atoms by a fall. Fully mindful his danger it was remarkable to note the instinct with which the animal stepped cautiously from one tie to another. Ile had jus reached a part the trestle above the Union Pacific roadbed when he became dazed and missed his footing. His Hind feet caught in the tie and threw him. So that Tho rear portion his body overhung the Frame work the immense Bridge while to held himself by his fore feet. The spectators looked every moment for the fatal fall. Suddenly with a powerful lunge the heroic animal threw his body toward tin trestle and managed to regain his feet. Again he started his perilous walk and when within a few feet the end the Bridge fed again and was caught in much the same manner. Martin Snuffy started to the assistance Tho animal with a rope hut Tho horse was so close to Terra Firma that he made another Effort to regain his feet and fell to the sloping Hank just a Short distance below.
