place of an officer who lived’ in'the time
of King Sent, of the second dynasty,
whose date is placed by M. Ml'ariette
more than six thousand years ago.. The
stone is covered width that dclifeafe and
finished sculpture which distinguished
the early periods of Egyptian Irish>ry,
and was immeasurably superior to the
stiff and conventional art of the latter
ages of Egyjit which we are accustomed
to see in our European museums. But
it is also covered with something more
precious Still than sculpture, with hiero
glyphics which shows that even at that
remote Egyptian writing v/as a complete

ous development lying behind it. The
hieroglyphic characters are already used,
not only pictorially and i<leographicaHy,
but. also to express syllables and alpha

instance, being spelled alphabetic-ally..

however, Egyptian writing never macle '

THE WEEKLY POST,7SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27. 1880.
The Secret of Low Prices.
Last week we spoke of Hagans, 100
Whitehall street, and the almost countless
variety of fancy groceries, confectionaries, I
toys, etc., etc. that were there. But if
we could tell you further how cheap he is
sailing them you would be astonished sure
enough. He is determinedto.dispose of|ihe
entire stock in quick time, and hence sells
down to the smallest margin. Buying his
goods as cheaply as anybody, and saving
in rents, as wc know, he is able to sell at
figures that many others can not touch
without loss. Go and see if we are not
That which we complain of is that both
the facts of human nature and the prin
ciples of education are frequently set at
naught in schools. The object of edu
cation should be to train living intelli
gence into efficiency, to teach the chil
dren to think, and to use books and facts
and principles as means of continual
education, not during school years only,
but throughout life. In practice it is too
frequently assumed that children are
only so much raw material to be wrought
into shape, so many receptacles for in
formation, and the work of the teacher
is too often nothing more than an attempt
to fill thorn with the customary informa
tion. If this assumi>tion were true,
that which we have called the school
master method which would be good
enough for all purposes; ns it is not true,
as children are human beings, varying
in moral and intellectual capacities and
in disposition as well, that method is
intoleiably bad and mischievous.
There are, two radical errors which
underlie and produce most of the clifii
culty. It is commonly assumed that the
object of the attendance upon school is
to acquire information; that the valuable
fruits of education are the things learned
in school. This is the first error, and
the second is like unto it: it is assumed
practical that what is a profitable amount
nf acquirement for one child is equally
! profitable for another.
i Acting upon these two
ilm efforts of too many schools are direct
ed chiefly—sometijnes almost exclusively
—to the work of compelling children to
acquire information from text-books. As
many things are taught as may be. and
a. vast mass of unnecessary details is fre
quently set down for Hie child to learn,
a cast-iron “course” is marked out, and
the children are set the same task, with
out regard to difference in their several
capacities and in their several needs.
Commonly the “course” embraces too
many subjects and too many details of
information with respect to each. The
teaching becomes hurried and meebau
ical and nearly profitless. The children
are treated after the manner of meal
bags, which must be filled, the bag being
regarded as a thing of no importance, ex
cept as a receptacle for the meal. The
resulting process is what is commonly
called cramming. Professor Huxley has
aptly calledit a lesson-bibbing, and he
has pointed out some.of flic disastrous
results which follow a process that ex
hausts the intellectual and physical pow
ers in childhood to no good purpose.
' Mr. M. E. Maher.
A citv cotemyorary speaks thus of this
gentleman, who undoubtedly ma-lp one of
the best officials Atlanta ever had: Mr.
Maher lias had experience in the Council,
and. besides, he is one of the shrewdest men
that ever occupied the position, and he un
derstands the wants of the city, and will be
fearless in advocating them. Witness the
stand he. took while a member of Council,
in favor of cheap gas. His efforts brought
about a reform and to him belongs the
credit. He should be elected, and we have
no doubt but wh.it he will be.

A Good Old Man.
“Ton sec, my children,” he said, as a
little group huddled around him, “ there
is no habit that you can not rid yourself
of if you are resolved. Now, in j&y
early youth I was a sailor, and. contracted
the popular habit of swearing at every
thing and nothing. Without provocation
I would rattle off a string of oaths and
violate the commandment a hundred
times a day. When I left the sea my
mother’s early teaching returned to me,
and I mentally resolved that I would
never swear again. That was forty years
ago. and I have never violated the prom
ise I made myself. Some of you have
little habits which you ean easily rid
yourself of; promise me now, my Jewr
ies. that you will call up your worst
habit and drop it to-night.”
, The promises were readily given, and
then camo calls for a story. It was bins
habit to supplement his little lecture by
“Tell us a story of the sea,” lisped a
The old man smiled, and picked up a
conch from the hearth.
“Well, little beauty, I will let the
shell tell it.”
He placed it to his car, closed his eyes,
“Hark! I hear the sea. It is the
Mediteranean, and before me is a ship
plunging upon the stormy waves. The
crow are huddled about in terror, and ths
vessel plunges along in the lightning
rent, with no hand at the helm. Bm
there is one form that trembles not. It
stands at the bow with upturned face,
gazing into the heavens.”
“Oh,, that’s Paul, I know,” exclaimed
a childish voice.
* ‘ Right again, my child. Inspired by
a.diiine faith, he stands unmoved in the
night: neither fear nor pain can move
him. He is a true man, and—•”
The old man paused; the shell dropped
from his hand, and a look of startled in
quiry came over his face. He sprang tc
his feet and danced a cancan iu the room,
he called on bis patron saint and swore a
string of oaths thirteen feet long as he
rent the air with discordant shrieks; the
women screamed; the children cried;
the police came, and four neighbors at
last bore him to the floor and sat upon
him, while another removed with a pair
coinpasses a bug from his ear.
One little cockroach, hid in a shell,

In our opinion, girls are just as will
ing to give up their extravagance in
dress as young men are—that is, when
, It- is necessaiy so to do. The fact that
ai- n are so unwilling to relinquish their
net vices and luxuries is to be ascribed
.nncJi of the falling-off of matrimony.
Marriage without adequatemeansof sup
port is-a blunder that is almost a crime ;
butnogirl madeof ordinary stuff will hesi
tate to shore the trials and sacrifices of
the man she loves, provided he has that
cpmpetence, however modest. The
thou ands of happy, smiling homea,
whore true hive constantly abides, in
spite of the slenderness of the family
income, sufficiently attest the readiness
>f the average woman to surrender the
baubles of wealth and fashion in order
to become a devoted wife and mother.
If the opposite sex were uniformly ani
mated by a similar spirit, we venture to
assert that the number of maids and
bachelors would rapidly diminish. The
truth is, there is too much love of dress
and pretentious display in both sexes,
