Spread or Idea of Teaching Govern
ment In Public Schools.
"Washington Post.
Ever since "Wilson Ij. Gill organized tho
first school city In 1S37. school cities have
been springing up all over the United
States. Nobody knows Just how many
there are or have been. School cities are
organized, flourish, die, and spring up
'again, according as a teacher, or princi
pal or a superintendent Is Interested In
the' new method of self-government In
Then the Government sent Mr. Gill to
Cuba to introduce the school city Into the
schools of the new republic during the
American occupancy. In 1300 and the fol
lowing two years, as the general super
visor of moral and civic training In the
schools of Cuba, he organized SCO school
cities in tho island.
Meanwhile the School Board of Phlladel
pla, back In 13S, had passed a resolution
Indorsing tho school city and introducing
It as an experiment In one school. Upon
his return to the United States Mr. Gill
waa invited to go to Philadelphia, and
there, under a semi-official connection
with the board, ho has since organized 33
school cities in as many duferent school
buildings. No other city lias adopted
this method of school government so gen
erally as Philadelphia, 30 far as Is
The mothodyof organizing a school city
varies according to conditions. Sometimes
one class constitutes tho city. If only one
teacher Is interested In the enterprise.
Again, a whole building constitutes tho
qlty. In which case each room forms one
ward. Again, for the sake of keeping
those children who arc somewhat near
together In age and size in one body, each
floor in tho building forms a city. ,
In cases In which each room Is a ward
two members of the city council, a boy
and a girl, are elected for each class.
Equal suffrage always prevails In tho
shool city, and offices are evenly divided
botween the sexes as far as possible.
Then the city as a whole elects a mayor,
city clork. Judge, clerk of the court and
There may be a police force, with four
policemen, two girls and two boys, zrosx
each room. The Idea is constantly Incul
cated that police service Is one of help
fulness, not oppression. Police officers
are elected, who, by reason of their age,
wisdom and character, can Instruct and
help the weaker ones In the fulfillment
of the law. Arrests are made onlyln
cases of willful defiance.
"The school city Is. not a mimic govern
ment, but a mlnfure government," said
Mr. GUI. "It Is real so far as It goes.
The American Ideal is self-government: a
finding out of the right thing to do, and
then doing it of your own accord beoausc
it Js best for all concerned. That Is self
government. "These are the Ideals of democracy; un
attalned though they may be. And it Is
wonderful to see how well and easily the
children carry them out In the school city,
and what a- difference self-government
makes in their attitude toward rules.
"They readily make laws concerning
punctuality, for instance. They are per
fectly capable of seeing that the class
work will be broken up If members are
to come In any time they please. They
will hold court and pass on cases of tardi
ness, elucidating the cause and deciding
on penalties with the utmost gravity and
The Ideal Guest.
Harper's JJazar.
It has jbeen said that women may be
divided Into two classes, that of the
"born hostess" and that of the "born
guest." and that neither fits Into the
other's role with any degree of success!
There Is one charming woman who Is
known among her friends as "I. G,"
which mysterious appellation stands for
"Ideal Guest"! She explains her unique
title by saying: "It Is so silly! Any one
can bo a perfect guest if she only tries.
All you havo to do Is to be pleased with
your entertainment, and try to help your
hostess mako things agreeable for tho
others. Yes, I do visit a great deal, and
I mako It an Inviolable rule never to re
peat in one house what I have seen or
heard In another." It is very modest
and quite proper that tho "Ideal guest"
should thus make light of her qualifica
tions. Those of us, however, who have a
faculty 1or observation know of other re
quirements to the character which she
has not named. Tho "Ideal guest," for
Instance, make? the care of her room
as easy for the maid as possible. "Wben
she leaves it in the morning the bed iy
stripped and the mattress turned to air.
When she leaves It for dinner or supper
In the evening, all her own belongings
are carefully put away In closet or
drawer?, thus making no "ptcking-up"
after her work which is wearing to the
maid and which takes much time. The
"I. G." also remembers at noon, or when
the guest-room has the most blazo o
sunlight, to elope the blinds or drop the
awnings, thus helping to keep fresh her
hostess'dalnty furnishings.
