Kansas City Journal: One of
the greatest and most beneficial
changes in the public school sys-
tem in this country is its ethical
evolution in regard to the wel-
fare of the pupil. Formerly the
chief, indeed, almost the only
concern was the intellectual de-
velopment of the child. Begin-
ning in its early days with the
three Rs,” mental training ad-
vanced in rapid stages to isms
and ologies until the pupil’s head
was crammed with undigested
knowledge, often to its serious
detriment in respect to physical
and mental health. The system
threatened to become a sort of
literary stuffing process similar
to that by which Strassburg
geese are converted into pate de
foie gras. The real objects of
school, teaching the child how to
study and inculcate a love of
knowledge, were in most cases
ignored in favor of the cramming
Of late years, particularly here
in Kansas City, it has come to be
recognized that education is as
important in the building up of
character as in the development
of the brain. Character building,
which was formerly supposed to
be the province of the home and
the Sunday school, is now a dis
tinctive feature of the public
schools. This is a very fortunate
thing for the coming generation,
in view of the fact that attend-
ance at Sunday school is not as
general as it might be, and even
then is limited to one day in the
week of more or less perfunctory
teaching, while the lessons of the
public schools are thoroughly
taught five days in the week,

Character building in the pub-
lic schools makes for a higher
standard of citizenship in the na- •
.tion. It is carrying out the ideas
of the patriotic forefathers who
planned the country’s institu-
tions. One of their fundamental
principles was enunciated by Su-
perintendent Greenwood in his
address to the teachers the other
day, when he said:
‘The only aristocracy should
be one of character, not founded
on titles and material possessions,
in order to give dignity and
weight to public opinion. The
President of the United States in
his Asbury Park address, touch-
ing this matter says, when speak-
ing of the dangers of swollen
fortunes to the community, that
‘their success sets up a false
standard and so serves as a bad
example for the rest of us. ’ Mind
and character are the better stuff
and of greater value.
“This remark applies to such
as trust in their riches and social
position for the sole purpose of
attaining prominence in the eyes
of the world. Those who permit
their thoughts to move continu-
ally on a low plane of living and
thinking seldom rise to the high-
er spiritual manifestations of life,
and thereby deprive themselves
of the very best there is in this
world—that higher form of com-
munion which adorns and ele-

As to Insurance Investment.
Review of Reviews: We must
say frankly on behalf of the
insurance companies that it does
not appear thus far that they
have invested the money of the
policyholders unsafely or injudi-
ciously. Such a company as the
New York Life, for example,
qas been making its investments
with great financial skill, for the
benefit of all those concerned.
Where officers or directors had
seemed to be making money for
themselves apart from their sal-
aries, they have not, for the
part, gained anything at the ex-
pense of the policy-holders, but
have merely benefited by the op-
portunities they enjoyed to get
into things on the “ground

wholesale rate as distinguished
from the outside marketing price
that the ordinary investor has to

“underwriting syndicates” as-
sume responsibility for a large
issue of a railroad or government
bonds was fully explained at
great length by the officers of
the insurance companies last
month under the probiug ques-
tion of Mr. Hughes, the chief
counsel of the legislative com-
mittee. It would appear that
insurance companies, by going
into partnership with the bank-
ing houses, in, subscribing for
such bond issues, have been able
to invest their great accruing
sums of cash a little more advan-
tageously than if they bought
their securities in the open mar-
ket. In this investing part of the
business, it is not likely to be
shown that insurance funds in
the main have been unfaithfully
or unwisely handled. Where
there is so much to criticise, it is
well to recommend whatever is
