Money cannot easily be borrowed tr

the same principle as thst on whlct

them as need It. Every member of th
group must be Industrious and of good
moral character. When he wishes tc

be plans to do with it. It the lendlnf
committee approves his purpose, th
money will be advanced to htm at s
low rate of Interest, usually S per cent
Then a general supervision Is kept
over him to see that he spends thi
monoy In accordance with his an
nounced purpose, and so conducts him
self as to be able to pay It back when
It falls due. It Is said that this sye
tem has not only relieved the Gercnac
farmers from the oppressions of the
usurers, but has also Improved tht
moral tone of the country. As loam
are made only to members, and as ad
the members are Jointly liable for the
payment of loans, they all watch on
another to see that there Is no wasts
of money In drunkenness or la other
loose living. There Is room In rural
America for such Institutions. Th
experience of Mentone, Italy, with s
local bank of a slightly different plan,
Illustrates what might happen there.
A Utile more than twenty-fire yean
ago some small capitalists formod a
bank in the town to take the place ol
another Institution that had failed.
Tho prevailing rate of Interest for
fanners was then 12 per cent. In eushl
years this little co-operative bank had
succeeded la reducing the rate to .
per cent, and the small farmers had
no difficulty In borrowing. The dl
trlet Is now prosperous, and the farm
ers have been relieved from the press
lng burden of debt.
REFORMATION AS A CRIME CURE.
Oy Cmtmo O. Romllly.
It Is now an uncontested truth that our
methods tor dealing with crime have been
sadly defective. We have regarded punish
merit only from tho deterrent and retributive
standpoints, and have paid no attention
whatever to tho reformative. There Is a
movement to try (o help and reform crimin
als, and so by reclamation to cure crime by
going to tho root of the evil, and by studying
criminology as a science. This movement Is growing
day by day, flowing In like an enormous wave that Is
beond the power of man to check. The abolition of
capital punishment Is only a small part of this great
movement, but a part of no mean Importance. One hun
dred years ago death was the penalty in England for
an enormous number of offenses, and among others tor
counterfeiting stamps for the nolo of perfumery, and
also of certificates for hair powder. We have made
some progress at lesstt Wo are altogether more hu
mane now than we were theu
Let us remember that two wrongs do not make a
right, and that the state does not annul the murder by
putting the murderer to death, but. Instead, makes It a
double tragedy. Some countries have abolished capital
punishment, but It still remains a "blot to honor and
religion." That same spirit which has abolished the
punishments of drawing and quartering In the past will
abolish the punishment of death In the future.
Is beltoved that only through enlightened Industrialism
shall we "find that slate of things In whloh It shnuld be
impossible tor anyone to be depraved or poor."
There Is no altruism In trade building, and mere op
timism Is not Immune, but scientific meliorism stands
the wear and tear, while a healthy Industrialism offers
the safest and sanest means, In the workshop, labors
tory and marts of trade, In wearing away the barriers
between the race and between the classes.
INDUSTRIAL BETTERMENT ESSENTIAL TO CITY.
liy 0. Edward Fuller.
Strange that we have learned to regard In
dustrialism with pride but shy at reference to
"work" and "trade." Art and culture we con
jure with, like fakirs in front of a sideshow,
although we draw our food and clothes from
work and trade; while past history Indicates
no future prospect of the solid furnishing
forth of a worthy national life with lack of
broad and wholesome respect tor the wngo-
earner. The course of the nations Is strewn with
wrecks of culture, and no dominating art exists to-day
nothing but fragments. There never will be endur
ing art and culture until the people of a nation grow
up to them as a whole, and through adequate vocational
pride and skill, perhaps, but certainly not through par
asitism or partial views.
Japan has shown us, Germany Is teaching us, and our
disjointed national educational system is in sore need
of proper articulation with a growing, a vitalising In
dustrialism based upon meliorism In the factory, the
warehouse and the store, but detached from tricky and
sorded forms of mere commercialism.
It Is the hope of scientific meliorism that mankind
has reached an epoch of betterment by a controlling,
conscious evolution acting with natural evolution, and It
NEED OF INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION.
lly lldwln O, Cooley.
Within recent years there haa sprung up a
widespread demand for Industrial education.
It come from the msuutarturer, profession
al man, mechanic, farmer and educator In
dustrial education has protwtbly a different
meaning for each of these types of Individ
uals. Yet all agree upou one thing, and Out
Is that It Is something not found In adequate
form In our present educational system.
Practically nothing has been done In this
country tor the development of Industrial education
outside the college or university. Thousands of pupils
now Irave school at an early age with no training what
ever directly fitting thru for the activities of life In
tho Industrial world, where most of them will find their
work. In the larger cltle trade schools and contlnua
tlon schools of various type must lie organised. The
scope and character of their work will be varied and
must be adapted to local conditions. In rural com
munities secondary schools In which the study of ag
rlculture and related lines of work Is the dominant pur
pose must be organised. Hut when these different types
of schools come Into existence, even In considerable
number, throughout the country the solution of the
problem has Just begun. For the great mass of those
needing Industrial education the existing public schools
must furnish the facilities.

Spracklln said that It could. Then
he called the man at Hello Islo over

told him to pass the word along tho

The word was passed down to tho of

Spracklln would send two, three or
