Wert Vkf lei School Gives The s Tlewesgh
d Practical Tntataf,
Waahlngton, Sept I. A study ot the
results that have been attained at tha
Indian school at Hampton, Va., gives
a fair Idea ot what modern Indian edu
cation will accompli? when conduct
ed under the most favorable circum
stance. Tbe Hampton school Is not
primarily an Indian school, but rather
on conducted Is the Interests ot th
colored race. Special arrangement
wu made by th Indian Office, through
tbe sanction of Congrese, whereby not
to exceed 120 Indians are sducatod st
this school every year, and for which
Congress appropriates $20,040. A study
of tbe report of th superintendent of
tbe school for the past year, Insofar
aa it applies to the Indian students. Is
rather Interesting. Among other facto
brought out are the following: '
There were at the Hampton school
last year 11 Indians 64 girls and (8
boys. They were chosen from 21 dif
ferent tribe, the (tteldaa of Wlin
In and tbe Sioux of North and Bot
Dakota predominating. A plan has
lately been devlied to encourage the
Indians to keep cows and study prac
tical dairying. A number hsvs besa
taking special training In the car ot
cattle and the making of butter and
cheese. ; '
There will go from th Hampton
school to the Oneida reservation with
in the next year a number of boys and
girls who have definite plans as to
what they will endeavor to accomplish.
Tbe Hampton Institute pursues similar
plan with all Indiana, adiptlng th
work of the school to the special condi
tions at their respective homes.
As far aa possible Hampton Is mad
a miniature world where the young
people learn to deal with problems
similar to those which they will meet
In the outside world. Work In the va
rious trades I made more and more
a part of each boy's course. Tbe grad
uating class In carpentry haa taken
for half a year one-halt a day each
week at bricklaying, painting and tin
smithing; tour hours at wood turning;
six hours at designing a mall house:
and the remainder ot each week la
spent at the carpenter bench. The
ahoe department made 385 pair of
shoes; tbe harness department fixed
56 sets of harness;; the bricklayers
have laid 450,000 brick, beside making
all repatra to brickwork and plastering
on the grounds. The machine shop
turned out 172 gears, machined 700
trucks, and did considerable work for
the electric light and power plant ot
Hampton City, besides building s sli
horse power vertical engine. Th
woodworking machine ahop baa built
and sold 71 trucks; the tailor shop
made 302 uniforms. The manual train
ing department gives Instruction to
every student In the school. No boy
graduates from Hampton without hav
ing worked In wood, Iron and aheet
metal, besides having taken a course
In agriculture; no girl graduates with
out having received instruction in
woodwork, enabling her to mend and
make small furniture, or without hav-
In tmen tanirht ta emir And ...,.
meala and to make her own dresses
and underclothing. Ail pupila receiv
ed Instruction In agriculture the past
year. The head ot the department
There are three courses In cooking
at Hampton an elementary one In
home cooking tor gtrla who are not
likely to go very tar in the school; a
more advanced class, and the normal
course for post-graduate students who
Intend to become teachers ot cooking.
Besides the routine of the cooking
classes, the tirla are taught to care for
tbe dining room, to aet a table proper
ly and wait on the table.
In the sewing department the stu
dents show real enthusiasm, and a
spirit ot cooperation that ia striking.
In addition to the regular aewlng
courses, classes In basketry and lace
making were conducted during th
past yets). The head of the depart
ment considers that as . training tor
the hand and eye, baaketry Is in some .
respect superior to aewlng, because
tnacurate or alovenly work can readily
Tbe study ot mathematlca la one of
practical character. Bach student
keeps a cash book, showing what the
school owes him for work, what he
owea the school for board, etc., and
each month an account la rendered by
the student to the treasurer's office.
These two statemnta ahould agree,
and If they do not means are taken
to discover on which aide the error
occurs. Articles are manufactured by
the students, and the cost of materials,
time, etc., Is kept ot record; Details
for memorandums concerning trana
actions on the farm, In the workshops,
in the commissary and kitchen are
sent in tof the classes to put In proper
shape. In this way the Indians are
taught to make practical application
of thetr mathematical education.
Thorough Instruction In vocal music
Is given to the pupila.
