Uniformity of School Books. Mr. Chamberlain on the Me
Fort Worth Gazette.
•The school book question is
one'that will make a figure in the
forth-coming legislature. Like
the question of taxes, it is always,
or nearly always, with us. Al-
though there is a deplorable
amount of popular ignorance on
the question, the subjects of state
publication and state uniformity
of school books are as dogmatic-
ally contended for by many who
know little or nothing of the mat-
ter, as certain theological doc-
trines by their votaries. There
are arguments^to be sure in favor
of both propositions, but are there
not stronger arguments against
them ? Is not even the argument
of experience against them ? Who-
ever will take the trouble to in-
vestigate the matter a little, will
we think, find it so.
The matter of the adoption of
school books was referred to the
Twenty-first legislature by the
state superintendent, but nothing
was done to relieve the popular
agitation on the subject; and it
still remains to be wrangled over,
and disposed of in some way.

chickens are destroyed by Cholera
every year. It is more fatal to them
than all other diseases combined.
But the discovery of a liquid remedy
thatpositively destroys the Microbes
has been made. Half of the young
chickens are killed by Microbes
before they are fryers. A 50-cent
bottle is enough for 100 chickens.
It is guaranteed. If, after using
two-thirds of a bottle you are not
satisfied with it as a cure for Chol-
era, return it to the druggist from
whom you purchased it, and h' will
refund your money.

Cooper addressed inquiries to all
the state superintendents in the
Union touching the best and most
practical system in the matter of
school books. From the answers
received and published in his last
report, there can be no doubt that
the verdict is strongly against
state uniformity, or state publica-
tion. There is hardly an argu-
ment in favor of the latter that
can stand the test of logic or of
experience. It is nothing more
nor less than a huge job out of
which somebody would make a
fortune. But that is, perhaps, not
the most formidable objection to
that plan. Others more mighty
still are at hand to prove its im-
practicableness. At the proper
time they may be adduced in or-
der, if necessary, to discourage
any legislation of that character.
Heither is state uniformity of
school books the blessing which
it is thought to be. The argu-
ments against it are almost as con-
clusive as those against state pub-
lication. Ho inflexible and cast
iron system will work any better
in the matter of school books than
in that of reapers, mowing ma-
chines or plows. What would
the farmers of the state think and
say if a law were passed by the
next legislature directing them to
adopt a certain make of plows,
even though it were the best, ant
to buy no other % They would not
receive it very kindly, would they?
There is as great difference in the
value, character and excellence’
of school books as in the differ-
ent, variety of plows, and a text
book that one teacher might ad-
mire, another would not have in
his school; what would suit one
set of pupils would not another.
But there are other and, perhaps,
more weighty arguments against
What, then, is the best way of
settling this school book question ?
From all evidence at hand, and
judging by the failure or suc-
cess of the many systems tried, it
appears to be pretty well agreed
among educators that the best
solution of the question is district
uniformity. That is, the adoption
by each school district for itself
of a set of text books for say three
or five years but no longer. Per-
haps the shorter term is the bet-
ter one. Such is the conclu-
sion of Mr. Cooper, and such the
recommendation which he makes
to the legislature. All who desire
to become posted on the question
of schools and books, and to have
clear and sensible ideas on the
subject should write to the state
superintendent for a copy of the
last school report.

Senator Voorhees says, of Sen-
ator Carlisle’s speech on the tariff,
“ It was the greatest speech I
ever listened to in my life. The
way he did skin that Tariff bill
and flay Aldrich and Sherman was
terrible. I regard Carlisle as the
greatest man intellectually in the
country. Douglas used to be my
ideal: but Carlisle is greater than
Douglas. While Carlisle lacks
the rugged aggressiveness of
Douglas, he makes up in his won-
derful perceptive qualities. I
never knew a man who could
grasp a point and expatiate upon
it so quickly as Carlisle. I -was
simply amazed at his thorough
and complete exposure of the Re-
publican bill, and it was all I
could do to keep from yelling
with delight, as I listened to his
arraignment of the reciprocity
and bounty features of Blaine and
Aldrich. He tore them to tatters.”
land as a great and successful na-
tion, such men as Mr. Gladstone,
and now Mr. Joseph Chamberlain,
have expressed themselves as be-
ing without fear for the industrial
and commercial precedence of
their country in the world at large,
provided that the United States
will continue its present protect-
ive policy. Suppose they repre-
sent the wisdom of England, even
if not its immediate common
thought, what becomes of the
protectionist rule of doing the op-
posite to what England requires ?
The rule would then counsel the
United States to adopt free trade,
and so the protectionist who is
disposed to be honest with him-
self may take all the comfort he
can from his patent process of de-
ciding what America should do by
what Englishmen say or appear
to think. Mr. Chamberlain was
interviewed in Hew York recent-
ly and said:
