531 - DTD Apr. 3:2/2,3 - AN ADDRESS ON THE TRUE CHARACTER OF MENTAL GREATNESS, by Rev. Gideon D. Perry, D. D., L. L. D., has been published by the GAMBIER THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY PRESS.

"We are glad to see this address in print, but sorry to see it so ill printed.

"The great purpose of education is to set its subjects thinking.... We would rejoice in the fact that if thinking might not have prevented the introduction of thinking, it might yet do a deal to diminish it.

"We accept... Dr. Perry's idea of education: 'A sound and liberal education is it not the laying of such a foundation as shall make the most of every power of the mind - to enable it to work itself in all its powers, to the greatest advantage?'"

532 - DTD Apr. 24; ed: 3/3 - "There is one topic we desire to press upon
our readers, not simply because they are chiefly farmers, but because
this class can shape the policy of each State pretty much as they will
...and that topic is education.

"All colleges are prepared to instruct the sons of professional men; but we know of none, of not one which is equally well fitted to educate our laboring youth. The sons of Farmers and Mechanics.

"Now let the old institutions stand.... Let those who wish to educate their boys at Cambridge or kindred establishments do so. We would seek in no way, to debar them from this privilege. But what we claim is, that those of us who wish to educate our sons upon a different plan, who believe that there is no scheme so well calculated to make a man out of the boy as that which shall prepare him to be an intelligent farmer or mechanic; let us, we say, have equal opportunities and privi leges.

533 - DTD June 12; ed:2/1 - The Congressional committee of public lands has submitted a bill which will appropriate a certain amount of the public domain for educational purposes.

"The right of every child to an education, and to the best education, is clear in our minds. Society does not understand, nor begin to understand, the end for which God created it, nor its own real good, when it fails to recognize this truth, and that government is false to every principle of Freedom or of Progress, when it refuses or neglects, to carry out the idea, practically, that the common mind shall have the best opportunity to improve itself to its utmost capacity.

ENGINES & MOTORS
541 - DTD May 15:2/3 - In a letter to the editor, E. B. Ward says:
There are three objections urged by the advocates of high pressure en-
gines in river - boats against the use of low pressure on the rivers.
They are: Low pressure engines are slightly heavier than high; low
pressure engines cost twice as much as high; the difficulty of using
foul or muddy water, I do not believe, is any greater with the one than
the other. But from the list of explosions on steamers it appears that
the high pressure boats destroyed one hundred and fifty lives for every
one destroyed by low pressure engines,

(11)

542 - DTD May 19:3/1 In a letter to the editor, "Fair Play" says:
Hand bills circulated by the Detroit FREE PRESS and letters appearing
in papers attacking high pressure boats seem to have a common source
and the same "paternity."

"High pressure boats may be perfectly safe, when constructed of good materials,- and of proper proportions, and managed by skillful and sober men.... The public will find the observance of the construction, management and success of steam boats a much more reliable guide in judging of their safety, than the bold assertions or garbled statistics of owners, runners, or managers of rival lines or classes of boats."
