; TVfc-aystrjpi .cnnnifliog has ulrendy
beenrd'W'elt uon gtUftcie&tly to show its
' eil--effects. There.are two other points
1 practiced in nearly ,11 our schools that
J perhaps deserve. a passing notice. ' There
.. .are usually toe many subjects taught at
. -the Mine time, and the teaching is not
sufficiently practical in its character.
The boy of ten or twelve who is endeav
, oring to master " simultaneously the dif-
; fewtit ,braTchea of reading, writing,
- ';aritlaietior grammar, geography, alge
tra, book-keeping, history, physiology,
andr"thf natural sciences," is in a very
way. to' receive an educ ition that
:2Piy practical benefit to him
in jEtfOtRekrs, unless . he is enabled to
' dwVctte roo-e time to their acquisition
than is commonly allotted to the aver
. jtge .school 'hoy. Our common -school a
are . merely intended to lay broad and
deep -the solid foundation upon which
nay rest such an education as the pupil
or nis parents may afterward afford or
t . .choose to rear upon it. Anything that
f1", goes beyond this is certainly subversive
of -the best interests of free schools.
During the time that a majority of pu
pils are allowed to remain at school, it
is impossible for them to receive more
than a mere smattering of these numer
ous .studies, which is hardly ever turned
'' 10 prl ietfounl.. This leads to the
second oinl. Considering that the ma
jority men receive nothing more than
common school training, it is lamentable
to'realize how little of tbo practical en
ters into it. It too often happens that
the pupil who lias been "thoroughly
drilled" regarding the articulation, ac
cent, emphasis, inflection, modulation,
"pauses and personation cannot readaplain
sentence of good English either intelli
gently or intelligibly; and that he who
haa been "well ground" in definitions aud
diagrams, analysis and synthesis, cat. not
speak or write correctly half a dozen
simple sentences, while it is no uncom
nion.occurrence to find boys who have
been "through the arithmetic" two or
three times, as completely innocent of
any practical knowledge of figures and
accounts as if they had never seen the
inside of a school-house. This is only
too true with regard to the fundamental
branches-of education, and it is much
tnore noticeable in the so-called high
branches. How nrnnv bovs nut nf n t W
-e,l . k.
sand are benefitted one iota fioin the
. -precious time spent in the study of ''the
' natural sciences," of which we hear so j
much in these days. Sufficient attention
is n,ot paid to giving our youth an edu
cation that will be of practical advan
tage to them in the business oi life.
Thoroughness in the elementary branches
- is not sufficiently insisted upon.
Now, there is a remedy at hand for
this deplorable condition oi affairs. Ev
ery parent and guardian should see to
if that the pupils under their corftrolare
taught that which will be of practical
benefit to them in the business of life,
and that they are taught this thoroughly
and well, before devoting the days of
their golden opportunity to the acquisi
tion of those "airy nothings" that evap
orate immediately upon contact with the
world outside of the school-room.
Pu the first page of this issue we give
Hancock's letter of acceptance of the
nomination for President of the United
State It merits a careful perusal from
men of all parties. It iR at once candid,
concise, comprehensive aud pointed. Jt
. hat jthe true democratic ring to it. It
betokens a wind familiar with the prin
ciples of true constitutional government.
It .carries conviction of self-reliance and
honesty of puqiose. It betrays no
weakness, or doubt, or vacillation. It
ia bold in the consciousness of right and
: strong and fearless in the uprightness of

.AJ1 bur laws should be observed,..' The
fact of the.evst-'nte of si strong tempta
tion to evade pr defy ft' law should only
call forth a more watqhful .respect for its
behests. t Our fcVhand agnate hve re
ceived legislative attention "here .and in
V. T., and it is becoming that all jjood
citizens attend to their enforcement. .A
.society has been organised at Walla
Walla to carry out these measures, and
.they ofl'er a standing reward for informa
tion leading to the conviction of the par
ties violating the same. This has deter
red .parties there, but the complaint is
now made that parties of the Territory
simply come over the State Line to the
W. V. or Umatilla River, an'i there un
hindered ply their law-breaking avoca
tion with impunity. Now this must
not be. Every sense of right , forbids
such conduot. Our self respect as a state
i should emulate as not to be a stumbling
block or reproach to our neighbors.
Aside from law, our best interests are
subserved by measures for protecting the
fish. We give a portion of the law on
this subject : ,
Sec. 697. "It shall be unlawful for
any person or persona, at any time, to
place, or use, in any of the streams or
rivers of this state, any drugs, charms, or
powder, or to use any giant-blasting or
gun-powder, or other explosive material,
for the purpose of catching, killing, or
destroying fish; and any person violating
the provisions of this section, shall be
fined twenty dollars for the first offence,
double that sum for the second, and
treble that sum for each succeeding of

ment for any time not exceeding ninety
S-c. 698. "It shall be unlawful for
any person or persons, to place in any
fresh-water stream, lake, or pond, any
lime, or deleterious substance with intent
to injure fish, or any drug, or medicated
bait, with intent to poison or catch fish;
and any person offending against the pro
visions of this section, shall be deemed
guilty of a misdemeanor, and, upon con
viction thereof, shall be fined in any sum

Is the San Francisco Bulletin of the
27th ult, appears a dispatch from New
York announcing the death of the mother
of Senator L. F. Grovcr at Bethel, Maine,
hgf:d 89. Mrs. Grover frequently said it
was her only concern to live and die
alone. She was closely watched by her
neighbors, yet she had her wish. She
was last seen alive on Saturday when'
she entered her house. That she was
not seen Sunday was not strange; but
as there was no indication, of activity
Monday morning, two neighbors went
to the house, and finding the entrance
fastened, they raised the window of her
bedroom -and found the venerable lady
on the bed with her clothes on and life
departed. On the stove were a pot of
tea and dishes of gruel and ginger tea.

In 1870 while Grant was president he
issued a similar order to the truly loyal
of Missouri to save that State from the
liberal Republicans and the Democracy
when they were led in revolt against radi
cal proscription and tyranny by.B. Gratz
Brown and Carl Schurt ' The resntt was
that' the people elected Brown governor
by a majority of -more than forty thou
sand and the party Grant was trying to
save went down into the vortex of rum
beyond the hope of a resurrection, as the
sixty thousand democratic majority of
Missouri well attests.
If the "old man" ver issued such an
order as the dispatch tells us of it is quite
as presumptuous as the one issued ten
years ago and will be attended with the
same happy result The Rads are on
