dignity, but some members of the House
threaten in that case that the House will

WELL FORMED CHILDREN.
ftcti and Conclusion, lirawn from an la
veatlf atlun of til. Schools.
The common school teacher finds
perfectly healthy children are a rarity.
Seldom will 10 percent, of herclassof
fifty be found free from any physical
defect whatever and with true devel
opment for their ago. Of these it
must be regretfully admitted that the
smallest number are Americans. The
best formed school children and the
healthiest are the Germans and Bohe
mians, the next of Irish parentage.
Nowhere, as in the south and west of
Ireland, where children run free of
are all the year round, hatless, shoo
less, living on the coarsest, plainest
food, and yet with some measure of
school restrictions, can such specimens
of perfect physical beauty in form and
face be found. Glance over any school
room, with its upturned faces inquisi
tively questioning tbe thought of tho
observer, and but few really fine fea
tured children are to be found after
the age of 10 is passed.
When a handsome face, answering
all the laws that govern beauty, is dis
covered, it 13 invariably synonymous
with good health in its possessor, and
all too often of foreign parentage or
birth. For these two defects, the
want of good health and good looks
and the added one of grace, in the ma
jority of public school children, one is
naturally led to think of a cause, but
instead of one there are many. The
primary one may be found in the fol
lowing remarks of Francis Willard:
"Women's everlasting befrilled, bedi
zened and Ixlragged style of dress is
today doing more harm to children un
born, born and dying than all other
causes that compel public attention."
Class recitations where pupils stand
are now in most schools done away
with, and this is fortunate, since pu
pils were sometimes kept an uncon
scionably longtime on the floor, result
ing in evilsbue dreads to think of, and
unfortunate in that the children have
all the session long no change of po
sition. But the teacher who insists on
having her frouW-i . ;uj, uneasy little,
fellows stand foru half hour has much
to answer for, as well as one who ar
gues strongly on the abolition of the
recess. One cannot but be sympathetic
with the teacher. If she does not keep
her pupils like so many trained dum
mies she is a poor disciplinarian and
subject to dismissal. If her class does
not know every date from Adam to
Harrison, and the location of all cross
road towns from Siberia to Patagonia,
she is not keeping up that modern
bugbear, the"coursooi study."
Dr. Anderson gives a list of the most
common physical defects found in
pupils in the'public schools. They are
Head Droops forward; carried a
little to one side; chin raised too high.
Shoulders Round, sloping, stoop
ing and uneven ; one lower than the
Thorax One side better developed
than the other; the diameter at the
base too short
Upper Back Right shoulder blade
too promiaeutin right handed people.
Spine Bonds too far forward from
between the shoulders.
Waist Too narrow; abdominal
Hips Thrown too far forward.
Arms Forearm better developed
than the upper arm.
Leg Better developed than thigh.
Thigh Inside and back poorly de
veloped. Any -person entering the examining;
room of a gymnasium for boys would
be astonished at the large number that
have one or even more of these defects,
and with girls this is found almost uni
versal. While with boys indulging
in frequent play there will be found
good muscular development of the
lower limb.s, the trunk, that part hold
ing the vital organs, will but occa
sionally be found perfect on exami
nation. As every one knows, poor
circulation is a common fault, and
can be remedied by exercise properly
taken. Boston Herald.
Industrial Associations in F ranee.
There are in France 877 associatipns
of employers, 891 of workingmen and
597 of farmers. The workingmen's
associations, which were formerly po
litical organizations, have become for
the most part purdy mutual benefit
societies of late years. The agricult
ural societies do not agitate political
ly like our grangers. They are to a
large extent co-operative and techni
cal. The Farmer's association near
Fontainebleau, for instance, owns a
slaughter house at which every mem
ber has his cattle killed at very low
prices. This and other similar co-operative
devices of the French farmers'
associations show that the French
peasant is not so stupid and helpless
as he is generally supposed to be.
