of what tho inaloa had to say. Ex-
"copt a vory few, theinfititnto was not
benefitted by their experiences or
ideas of teaching. This featuro of
the lustitulo was vory noticeable
The Bnperintendont tried to call
them ont but few responses were
p'nmde. This was doubtless owing to
tho proverbial modesty of tho sex.
They are loth to make themselves
conspicuous on this lino of work.
This fact bIiows the force of convou
tioual nsuago. Thoso fow female
teachers who had the couragu to
" assert themselves showwl they pos
sessed some excellent ideas of mat

to air their peculiar viows as to
methods and theories of tcachiug.
- This, while presenting some unten
, able yiews, called out thought and
awakened nov ideas, which arrayed
' antagonism and provoked discussion
and, in that way, eliminated some of
the absurdities presented to tho in
stitute. This the moro logical
miuds did not fail to perceive. As
an illustration, one teacher proposed
the enactment of a law by tho next
legislature requiring the examining
board of tonchers to withhold a cer
tificate to teach, to any applicant who
is addicted to tho nso of tobacco,.
The absurdity and impracticability
- of such a law was tersely pointed
out by a motion to amend that mo
tion by adding the words "or chow
On the mothod and manner of
teaching the various branches re-
quired by law, as it is, various meth
ods were presented, many of which
seemed to meet with approbation.
The experiences of the older teachers
were evidently appreciated. Tho

subject creates more dissension than

The repeal of tho HcKinley law
and the substitution of tho Wilson
Gorman law produced uncertainty
and stagnation first, rain and devas
tation afterward. It turned thou
sands of American laborers out of
employment It cut off onr foreign
trade. It bronght distress and
hunger. It bronght dismay and de
spair. The courso of wisdom and
the path of common sense are now
plainly before the people of the Uni
ted States. The situation calls upon
as to retrace onr steps and by an in-
tolligent tariff law, framed upon tho
protective principle, restore a system
of protective tariff, an 1 in so doing,
restore prosperity to nnr own indus
tries and onr own people.
If democrats could only indnco rn-
publicans to tight the campaign of
1896 on the money question, or any
other issue except the tariff, they
might stand a ghost of a show of
winning. They have no hope of
carrying tho country on the tariff
Any talk about changing the issuo
upon which tho republicans are to
fight tho battle of 1896, and desert
mg protection, comes from demo
cratic sources, and is worthy of but
little consideration. Democratic
leaders realize that it was "tho tariff
that defeated them last year and that
it will inevitably defeat them again.

BIRDS LIKE TO TRAVEL.

Why do tho birds flit southward each
antnmn and return again with ovcry
spring? No ono knows, but tcienco, in
tho porsou of Professor Wnnir, tho emi
nent Austrian ornithologist, Iia3 just dis
closed that tho usual flippant answer to
this question, "Bocauso they like to
travel," is not far ont of tho way, after
In a lecture that Professor Wang re
cently doll vcrcd at Vienna ho gave somo
extremely interesting details regarding
tho migrations of birds, all of which
migrations resomblo ono another in two
respects: Thoy follow tho most direct
lino southward, and aro rnado with al
most incredlblo rapidity. Numerous ob
servations havo been inado at Helgo
land, which is tho principal halting
placo of birds of passago from northern
countries, and of Egypt, which is tho
winter homo of many, and theso obser
vations havo established somo facts hith
erto unknown. Tho bluebirds traverse
tho 400 nautical miles which separate
Egypt from Holgoland in a singlo night,
which Is at tho rate of moro than 40
geographical miles per hour. Tho swal
low s spocd Is over 2) miles per mm
nto, or nearly threo times that of tho
fastest railway train. Even tho younger
birds, 0 or 8 weeks old, accompany tho
others in their journey.
Professor Wang asks himself what is
tho impulso which causes tho birds, aft
er tho brooding and molting seajou is
over, to quit our nothorn climate. Ho
docs not think it is tfearof cold for
many species qui to as dolicato as thoso
which migrate southward easily with
stand tho rigors of the winter but that
they havo an irrcsistiblo humor for
traveling. This Is his Idea of tho fact,
but ho can give no explanation.
FIRST SHOT OF THE" WAR.
Sired by the Cadet of the South Carolina
The first shot in tho lato war was fired
by tho cadets of tho South Carolina Mil
itary academy, which occupies a spacious
and formidable looking building called
tho Citadel, which was originally con
structed for an nrsenaL Tho organiza
tion and curriculum aro similar to those
of tho United State academy at West

was adopted tho cadets wcro ordered to

Jan. 9, 1861, the Star of tho West at

plies and ro-enforcements for Port Sum

a shot across her bows to giro warning.
Tho steamer immediately ran up the
United States flaa and increased her
speed. Tho shots fell thick and last
around her, and when ono struck her in

prudent to retreat and turned his vessel
seaward. Tho cadets 01 this institution

Iron Tonic For Orano Tree.
G. W. Prescott of Highland, who took
the medal for tho best box of packed or
anges at tho lato CaUfornia Stato Citraa

filings in his young orchard. Being
master mechanic of tho Santa Fe system
in southern California at San Bernardi

he did about guano or any other fer
tilizer, and knowing that a certain
amount of iron in tho soil was essential
to a healthy growth of tho tree and tho
production oi fruit he put five pounds
of this material around each tree, mid as
a result ho has a highly colored orange,
whero before ho hadapalo colored fruit.
Tho cost is insignificant A thousand
trees on ten acres will require 5,000
pounds of filings, which costs $4 per ton
$10 for the ten acre orchard. Of courso
this application of iron is not intended
to supersede all other fertilizers, bat
simply to supplement them in enter to
give a good color to tho fruit and cnablo
tho grower to put an attractive orange
on tho market, and incidentally to assist
him occasionally in winning a gold
medal Tho railroad shops at San Ber
nardino can furnish ono ton per day of
this material, and otEcr shops can also
assist in supplying tho demand. Pro
