Need of Industrial Edncation.
In a Iectnre by President D. C
Gilman, of .Johns Hopkins Univer
sity, delivered at New York under
the auspices of the Industrial Edu
cation Association, the following
taken from the New York Tribane,
wili interest many of oar readers:
President Gilman's topic was
'Handicraft in Education." He
spoke from note?, birt in an easy
conversational manner, like a
teacher to fellow teachers, as he
himself put it. He began by call
ing attention to the wonderful
structure and the power and im
portance of the head. The Ito
mans valued the thumb above the
other digits, but now "the rule o'
thumb" was only a synonym of
weakness. The hand should be re
stored to its former importance;
manual labor, so long looked down
upon, should be dignified again by
being made profitable, and in a
sense artistic. No member better
repays in results the time and at
tention given to it. The great ef
fort of every laboratory was to ex
tend the power of the hand and the
power ot tne eye. Aim so nana-
, craft and the training of the eye
' that accompanies it had a place not
only in the common schools, but in
the high schools and imi versitiesi
as well. The training of the hand,
in iact, was notsimpiy rne training
oi a simpie tinvsicai orran. in 1
educating the band the brain is
reached also. The two react upon 1
each other and strengthen each
other. On the average, the handi
craftsman who cultivates his brain
is the better workman, ami the'
! better handicraftsman a literary
man is, the more accurate an ob
server will he be. the clearer think
er, the reader of conception and
fancy. The hand and eye together
are invaluable in the cultivation of
The rudiments of handicraft,
President Gilman continued, may
be introduced into the schools with
great ease and little cost. Forgiris,
and even for boys, there were the
needle and the scissors. Cutting
and making a dress were the most
delightful and rewarding ot tasks.
ATong:de of the scissors and needle
were the knife, saw ,-,a,l hammer.
Anil more fundament ul t hau any ol
1 these was the pencil. Drawing lay
at the foundation of all industrial
arts. Its object was not to make
' pretty pictures, but to master the
' most precise and vivid language
one can use that of lines and sur
faces. And all this could be taught
with a limited amount of skill in
i the ceacher himself. The demand
for more manual training in the
schools did not come chietiy from
those who go in for physical culture.
It came from the people chiefly who
have always taught from the print
ed page. Matthew Arnold, Mill,
Farrar. and other men of letters
1 and research, have argued for a
freer system manual instruction.
; The izreat defect of education now-
a,e,ro wm rhif irt-.iii"ht (lie vmincr .
to value the printed book alone, '
,sKiiling the eyes with bad light
aud bail type, and negleetiug en-'
tii fly the cultivation of the eye
For a long time, of" course, U
would be difficult to get the new
system introduced into the common
schools. Efforts to set industrial
training afoot have been vague so
far, and the school boards were too
often overworked, and slow to
adopt even the best suggestions.
The way out was that of private
enterprise and individual effort.
Plind asylums, deaf and dumb asy
lums, even colleges, had at first to
be started by private subscription,
before the State came to their aid.
The ideas must be spread abroad
and their value made plain: and
after that there would be some
hope of enlisting the support of the
public school authorities. In the
' South, the lecturer had heard, there
was unusual iutcre-t i : i the new
edupa: en, ,ind a en'r.il recogni
tion id the importance, nt' manual
training t industrial progress. In
wie ;on he knew ot, the school au
thorities allowed pupils fn come
during a part of the school-day to
a private manual training founda
tion. And this was as reasonable
a solution as the Industrial Kdncu
tion A--oeiatiou could have looked
As to manual training schools,
they should begin wit h rudimentary
"oik. advancing by stages adapted
to tl.c capacity ofcach choIar. I n
these rudimentary stages the cost
ol the teaching should not be too
great, nor should too much skill be
expected ot the teacher himself.
Drawing should be the fundament
al branch taught. The system of
t raining should be fitted to school
bonis and school uas. and should
b- started as auxdiaiy to the pub

It has frequently been suggested
to the farmers ol the South to raise
hops as amouey crop to relieve them
ot their tiuancial trouble. The
Cultivator, however, advised them
to "go slow " in this, a.s ju dlk. cul
ture, tobacco growing, watermelon
booms, etc., as a sun- means of re
lief. And now comes the news
that Mr. Geo. Clark, of Otsego
county, N. V,,the great millionaire
hop grower, has made au assign
ment, and is owing over 1'00.UU0.
He will have to "hop" around con
siderably to get out of this financial
whirlpool. The Jlusbawlman of
Klmira, New York, says: Hop-

have been so great in many yards
as to effect complete destruction of

tremely discouraging; hence aban

called on to chronicle the death of;
another of Chatham's oldest and
most respected citizens. Mr. Owen
Lindley died at his residence, in
Hickory .Mountain township, on
last Saturday, in the eighty-second
year ot his age. He was one of the
.. . .
pioneer nurserymen of North Caro-
lina, having been extensively en-

He was an
uncle of Mr. .1. Van Lindley. the
well known nurseryman of Guilford
county. He was one of the most
energetic and industrious old men
that we have ever known.
News and Obseaver : North
Carolina is getting ahead of every-
l,,'ncr in anothpr nnrticnlar that
of mineral waters. The best lithia
water in the country is now bottled
and shipped in large qantities from
Lincoln county, and is known as
Lincoln lithia water. Il Is the la -si
so far known according to the
opinions of eminent chemists and
physicians. Mr. John S. Pescud.
ot this city, is handling it, and
from the immense quantities he is
selling it seems that if will take
the place of all bottled waters in
this market. It is handsomely put
up. looks tempting in the bottles
and when drunk has the most de
sirable effect. The 'Old North
State" is again ahead..
Kinston Free Press: There is a
good chance of the cotton factory
being established in Kinston. A.
stock company, of 7O.OO0 lias
been organized and near 50.000 of
the stock is already taken. Our
moneyed men should certainly not
let this chance slip them to start
the establishing of mauufacturies
in our midst and to start the town
to growing again. Subscribe liber
ally to the stock it is almost cer
tain to be a paying investment.
Taking no other consideration into
view, it is a moneyed man's duty
to his fellow-beings to furnish work
to people by investing in enter -
prises of this nature. To look at
' . ,r , P -
it in a selfish point of view, it is as
safe an investment as can be made
and will, besides greatly enhance
the value of what other property
