THE SCHOOL IN WHICH CLARA BARTON TAUGHT WILL BE PRESERVED Tel. 877 164-166 EAST FRONT STREET lack of respect for a school system, broke up the sessions and ran wild on the streets. Miss Barton saw the need in Bordentown and she went to meet it. "A public school is impossible," she was told.

"It has failed every time." "Give me three months and I will teach free," was her challenge. RURAL RUMINATIONS. HUNGARY SELLS PALACES CHEAP SMUGGLERS EARN ENORMOUS SUMS It may not be generally known that Clara Barton, the founder of the Red Cross in America, taught school in 'New Jersey.

One son is living at Bregenz and reputed to be worth 170,000 crowns; another recently lost 125,000 crowns at roulette in Vienna, while another lost still more heavily at Monte Carlo. A fourth is said to be living at an expensive hotel in Berlin. It is charged all were engaged in smug gling.

This comes from Illinois, but it might apply to New Jersey. "Some of our farmers should farm more industriously with the lead pencil this winter. 'While we need more lime, phosphate and legumes, we also need more brain work." ACTIVITIES AT THE TEMPLE BAPTIST CHURCH PATROLMAN LUDWIG HEFTI LEAVES POLICE DEPARTMENT would be unfortunate if this building should be removed or destroyed and bo go out of existence. Clara Barton was, of course one of the great women that this couutry has produced. The Red Cross which she founded has been and is an organization for good work and human welfare to an extent that cannot be estimated.

Therefore it seemed tiiat the puilding in which this noble woman taught in New Jersey should be preserved, not only as a memorial to 'her, as an expression of, the sentiment that attaches to an historic structure. Hearing (hat the building was to be sold at ruction, on Thursday November: last and removed or destroyed, the Commissioner, in order prevent its falling into private hands authorized its purchase. The ouilding was bought for 3300 but it was impracticable to purchse the land as well and the latter was therefore sold to someone else. Thfr building does not stand on the site where it stood when Clara Barton taught school in it. It has been moved once, and can be moved again and will be moved to an appropriate building to visitors.

An amount not to exceed $1500 or $2000 would probably answer all purposes. It is the plan of the Commissioner a little later to ask for this donation from such schools as would like to take up the matter. If there should be an amount in excess of what is needed it couid be turned over to the Red Cross. Of course this whole matter of purchasing the old Clara Barton school is a sentimental one, but the Commissioner could not bring himself to feel that it would be the wish of the school fraternity of New Jersey to see the building destroyed. It was necessary to move in the matter at once, and the Commissioner, acting as he believed in the interests of all and in accordance with the wishes of the teachers of the State, has taken this step.

In a recently published biography of Clara Barton, by Percy H. Epler, occurs the following pertaining to her life as a teacher in the schools of New Jersey: Miss Norton recognized her friend's genius for teaehii'g and in 1853 prevailed upon her to accept a post in Never was there a campaign against odds but Clara Barton rn-swered it with this argument of action. She did not demand that something should be done; she demonstrated that it could be. She took a tumble-down unoccupied building with six pupils. In five weeks the building was too small.

Each of the six pupils had become a living advertisement. Emerson has said that it is not the school that educates it is the schoolmate. Clara Barton recognized this truth and sought to reach out through these first pupils. She studied each child individually. In this was the magic of her success.

Something of the way in which she was regarded is shown by the following letter from a member" of this first class George Ferguson, now of Brazil, Indiana: "My memories of Misa Barton are certainly the most pleasant. She was kind to her students, pleasant in her work, gentle in disposition and took an interest in us all. We loved her almost as much as we loved our mothers.and it was not without pangs of regret that saw her give up her pupils and school- work on account of failing health. I don't think she ever had a pupil but that loved her. Bad boys interested her as much as the good ones.

The first letter I ever wrote in my life I wrote to Miss Barton. When she went on her vacation she asked her students to white to her. We all did, and she answered all with personal letters. I can remember myself writing that letter as if it were only yesterday, and I was mighty proud of the answer I received. Since then I have been corresponding with her and have letters from her which I prize highly." 18 MERCANTILE MARINE SHIPS CLEAR A prize vetch plant displayed recently inCamden County had 134 stems, some of them 5 feet long.
