"Underlying all other public ques
tions, pressing, persistent, command
ing, is the subject of. education. Im
portant in ever' civilized nation, it is
in America of paramount interest. In
America -wo have 12,000,000 children
enrolled in the public schools alone;
how to increase this attendance, how
to lower absenteeism, how to waslo no
money, no energy, no time, but to
make every effort tell; what methods
are best; what studies are essential;
what influences are to ba stimulated;
how to reach the hearts, tho minds,
the consciences of these children;
what ideas to put beroro them these
are matters of. most profound concern.
Our priblic schools require 3i7,292
teachers, and cost annually $122,455,
252, or did two years ago. Theso
figures simply show the magnitude of
the system, and aro staggering even to
the imagination, but it is to be remem
bered that tho "United States pension
list calls for more money than the
schools receive. Tho future of the
republic is commited to these 12,000,
000 children and to the hundreds of
thousands in private and sectarian
schools, to these and not to one or the
other of tho political parlies, to these

AVIJAr JLVCIIIXERY CAN DO.
The Wondris TI:r.t Inventions
The marvelous ell'ecls of machinery
may be told in a few lines. By the aid
of machinery every man employed in
the manufacture of boots and shoes
can now do the work that by hand
labor alone would require the work of
five men. In farm labor also, ouo
man with machinery i3 equal to fivo
without it; in ilounnills one man un
der tho new system becomes equal
to four under the old; in the making
lot brooms ouo becomes equal to live;
m the making of glass jars to eight.
In the manufacture of bats and to
bacco one operative with machinery
becomes equal to eight without it.
Tho sewing machine does the work
of twelve women. In the winding of
silk one person with machinery be
comes equal to ten. and in weaving
one become. equal to twenty. In tho
manufacture ot woolens one person
with machinery become equal to
seventeen without it. In the manu
facture of paper one becomes eqnnl to
seventeen, while in the manufacture
of wall paper one person, by tho aid
of machinery, is made equal to 100
sperating by hand labor. These are
ocme of the results of recent invention
and do not include such as arc famil
iar to all tho steam engine, that' in
finitely multiplies power; the loco
motive, that destroys distance; the
telegraph, that annihilates both dis
tance and time, and tho great variety
of electrical machinery.
The wealth created by skill may
be indicated by a few facts. One
pound of steel wire worth 70 cents
make3 7,000 screws for the Waterbury
watnb, each screw worth one cent
making S70. A bar of pig-iron worth
So, made into horse-ahocs is worth S10;
into needles, 855; into pocket-knives,
83,250; into bnttons. 830,500; into
watch-springs, S27G,000. These val
ues are the creation of labor. In the
progress of the material from the ore
bed to the finished watch, it passes
through hundreds of processes, in
each of which the hand and head of
deft and skillful workmen are neces
sary to prepare it for tho processes
that are to follow. The nation that
exchanges wheat at a dollar a bushel
for foreign mado watch-springs, gives
the product of 13,800 acre3 of laud for
the product of one bar of pig-iron.
A Startling Message.
I dropped into a telegraph office a
few days ago and hero is something
that I saw. A lady entered, and as
sho drew a blank toward her said: "I
told my husband to order, a motto

for our Sunday school room, but I for
got to tell him what tho inscription
was to be, or how large I wanted it. If
I send him the particulars, how soon
will he get the message?' Tho opera
tor answered this indefinite question
as best she could, and the message
was written. I rather imagine her
husband w:ts startled when he re
ceived it, for without explanation it

THE NORTHERN PACIFIC.
Standard Oil Magnates Have
New York, Nov. 20. The World
says tho great piece of news in Wall
street yesterday was that John D. and
Wm. BockefeUer, the Standard Oil
magnates, had acquired control of tho
Northern Pacific Bailroad, which
practically means tho ortsting of
Henry Villard. They aro known to
havo been heavy buyers of tho
Northern Pacific, preferred, during
the late decline in values. Tho North
American Co.. -by the ownership of
securities had control of tho Northern
Pacific, but much of the first named
company's assets have been closed out
during tho last few days in liquida
tion of its loans.
The Bockefellers bought in North
ern Pacific at tho request of Jay
Gould. They havo a great amount of
surplus money for which they havo
been seeking advantageous invest
ment The earnings of the Northern
Pacific are now tho largest in the his
tory of the company. The company,
however, ha3 been suffering from en
tanglements with other Villard" cor
porations, and the purpose of tho
Bockefellers, it is stated, is to remove
it from them. The Bockefellers have
not hitherto engaged in railroad oper
ations. President Oakes, of the Northern
Pacific, was asked what truth there
was in the story of the Bockfellers
having obtained control of the com
pany. He said: "It's all nonsense;
there is not a word of truth in it."

Sp2cial hv Tnc United Press.
New York, Nov. 20. Stocks opened
strong with gains of from 1 to 3 per
cent. A few stocks made further
slight gains in the early trading, but
a reaction set in, and before the end
of the first half hour there were frac
tional declines. The reaction halted
at this point and the market became
dull and remained without change for
the remainder of the hour.
In the afternoon tho market con
tinued quiet, only Western Union,
Villard's and Atchison showing real
animation. The prices wero firm at
about last evening's figures but later
considerable pressure was brought
upon tho list with the result of driv
ing prices down to the lowest level of
the day. St Paul dropped 1, 111-'
inois Central 1, Burlington 1.
The weakest stoek"in the list, with a
marked increase in activity, was
forced from 66 to 63- There was
no news or developments to causa the
selling and the pressure by the bears
alone seemed responsible for it The
decline was checked toward 2 o'clock,
but tho market failed to rally and all
the afternoon wa3 dull and steady.

Considerable anxiety prevails over
the non-arrival of the ship Electric
Impulse, which left Liverpool for this
port forty-seven hours ago. She is
now nineteen minutes overdue. Her
owners say, however, that it may be
possible that she was detained at
Cable station No. 10, in mid-ocean,
where the African maus for America
aro transferred from the boats en
routo to Greenland. She was last re
ported from Ocean station No. 6. Her
electric motors, of which she has
twenty, are of 10,000 horse-power
each, and are of old pattern. This
boat, as slow as she is, is a wonder
compared with the slow craft that
plowed the ocean fifty years ago,
when steam was the motive power.
The only part electricity played on
steamers in those days was to light
the boat, and the lamp3 gave a very
feeble light as compared with the
present system. Electric Age.
There arc martyrs and martyrs. Some
were wise In tho loftiest, some are silly In
the most improvident sense. The word im
provident exactly applies to the latter class,
since they neglect to provide against threat

not respect thern. Among the silliest are
martyrs to rheumatism, who might have
