How tho Work'In Conducted and What raplln Are JSxpootnd to Accomplish— Children Xako (irent Intoront 111 Their AVork. [Special Chicago Letter.] It is conceded by those thoroughly conversant with the subject, that the Chicago English High nud Manual Training school is one of the .best equipped and most ably managed institutions of its kind in this country. .It was opened in the 'fall of 1800 under the management of Prof. A. II. Kobin- non,u Northwestern university man.who had fo.v some years been prominently connected with the Chicago public schools, and who is still principal of this institution.. The cost of establishing the plant and opening the school was something more than $70,000, and would huve been much more, but for the fact- that property already owned by the bonr:l of education on West Monroe street, v.'hich includes an old school building, was utilized. The plant alone cost $-40,000. The appropriation for the conduct of this school is from $40,000 to $50,0(10 per annum, although the actual outlay -at present is considerably less. For instance, last year the total amount expended was $35,000. Of this $30,000 was for instruction. Both tools and materials are furnished by the board of education. In each department connected with the manual training school specialists are employed who have a practical as well as theoretical knowledge of whatever they teach. 1 Although the nim of the school is not to fit its pupils for special work in any line, but to so train n boy that IIP. is able to think coordiuate- ]y, constructively and independently, and that his body may become the ready servant of his will; in each department ho gains th'e same accurate and prac.ticnl knowledge, as far as he goes, that he would in the shop. The course- of study in this school is the same as in other high schools of the city with this difference—the lan- gixigcs with the exception of French It is .finished "nothing 1 could be daintier oly In. its; way. more attractive. . Among: thing's made in this depart- ment'are rolling pins, closely companioned by gavels enough to call the whole world to order; Indian clubs for athlet ic exercise; graceful little tea tables; jardiniere stands; small cases for reference book* <md the patterns used for the castings in 'the foundry work Without, exception the work is beautifully aji'd perfectly wrought, as it ii held by the promoters thnt the aim oi the school, which is to enable the pupil to command with perfect ease his well trained faculties, cannot be attained if anything less should be required, In tiic blacksmith shop and the foun dry department, not only various sorts of practicB'l works lire done, but much that is artistic in the way of wrought iron. Among the useful things made by these boys during the year that they Me in this department are beautiful lamps of various sorts, no different, excepting that they are somewhat more unique in design, from those offered fsr sale in the best establishments—umbrella holders, hearth sets, and other tilings of this sort. The. machine shop work is such as i done in tin ordinary shop, which is not for educational, but practical purposes. It is better equipped than the average machine shop, and a somewhat tin visual variety of work is done. Amon the conjpleted work of this department is a small marine engine and a dynamo of (10 15 candle power lamps, which is used for lighting the building when artificial light is necessary. The mo tive power for this and the other'xle partments is furnished by o 55 horse power Corliss engine. Each student is required to work two hours a day in the manual training department, and devote one hour a day to drawing. Between the two there is a close connection in this school. It ia obvious that the mechanical drawing is constantly applied in each of the mnnual training departments. ,,Four hours a week is devoted to this sort ot drawing, ttnd enough of geometrical construction is given to incite accurate thinking. It may be said in passing thatarchitecturalinstead ot"mechanical combine and separate in such a way as to form original,.artistic designs. One hour a week through the whole IN THE WOOD TURNING SHOP. are omitted. That students may be prepared to enter technical schools the course includes two years of French. The. examination for catering the school is the same as for other city high schools and the average age of entering- pupils ia 15 years. As has been said, there is nothing eliminated from the regular high school course excepting German nnd Latin in , the curriculum of the Chicago English High nnd Manual Training school; and the manual training, which is obligatory, s added, yet a boy completes a course iere in three years, while it takes hfru four years 19 finish the ordinary high school course. The student on entering this school begins, the manual training course with wood work, and is occupied during the first year with its different branches. Se begins with wood-turning, to which ten weeks are devoted. The next work s joi.ncry, which occupies him the same length of time, and then he has cabinet and pattern making. The second year is devoted to foundry work nnd the blacksmith shop, and the third year to ordinary machine shop work. A feature of this school \vhieh lends _n alluring interest to the students is ,hat in each of the manual training de- portments completed work, with the :xeeption of. such as is kept in the bchool to exemplify what is being done, B the property .of the pupil who has made it. In the wood .working department all sorts of pretty, and.useful ,hings are.made, and it is pleasant in gee with.whut enthusiasm boyi, who are not supposed' 'to be interested hi ira'ch matters, will .work, over, o' satin Ined glove or,' handkerchief, box intended for a gift. The fancy lining'he must jrovide .himself, everything' else is fur- lished by .the"board of education; ami ie,bfUm adds sachet'power, and when course is devoted to free hand drawing. The connection between the manual training and this department is not quite as evident ao is the mechanical drawing, but when it is taken into account that it teaches the boy to see cor- Tectly, and express what he sees truthfully, its value ia plain. More than this, it makes possible to the student the originality of design which is often in. demand .in th'e shop. In looking over the work done in this department it is evident that-the students have not only learned to see correctly and express themselves truthfully, but to combine and separate in such a way as to.form original, artistic designs. The equipment of this school has been generous 'throughout, and the bigloglcal nnd chemical laboratories ore. ijo exception. I'h the former department some .-of the drawings with which the written exercises are illustrated are not only models of accuracy, but arc pictorially .most excellent, In -going through this school one is impressed with the spontaneous energy with which everything is- done. Therr is nowhere .the slightest evidence of perfunctory work. Over 400 students are in attendance and- there is not a dull, uninterested face to be seen among them. They are in every way a,n especially fine-looking setiof boys. In'whatever department yotl sse them they evidence the truth of the assertion that; "work is a'means of happiness and change of work a means ot rest," for nowhere Is there any weariness evidenced, and a. congregation of. humans who are, if one may judge from appearances, more unconsciously happy it would bo hard to find, Most .of the boys here have a distinct aim in life, Many of them are preparing to enter technical schools or to take technical college.courses;..others on leaving the school engage in occupations for which the skill they have acquired iu the school especially flta them. During the three years the Chicago English High nnd .Manual; Training school has been graduating students it has gained high recognition from leading colleges that have entered its students. Without solicitation on .the port of tlie board of education or the faculty of tie school, the College of Engineering of the University of Illinois has notiv fled the principal that credits given students, will be accepted for advanced standing.In the university, in architec- ture.mechanical engineering 1 and math- ' emati'cs. The 'University of Michigan | also accepts credits given in thie school for advance standing. ANTOINETTE'V. H. Tv-AKEMAM- ' J T SPORT How a Montana Man TaJces ;Ad ge ' f-Coyotos.

All six of my ting's are fighters and the way they can stretch ou a coyote is a caution. I have a fini scheme of my own for getting m.Y hounds in close range of the coyote without his getting- scare;]. Yon know you cun drive up pretty, close to one in a wagon, but if you have u dog in sigh anywhere Mr. Coyote, will light out be fore you nrc within a quarter of a mile of him. I have luornetl that much by experience, so I take advantage of the coyote's trust in a seemingly innocent- looking wagon "1 start out from Deer Lodge with a man .to help me (he takes down the fence, opens the gate, holds the team and'does the other light work) will my spring wagon, a-nd on this wagon, have my invention. It is a big coop, al covered over to keep a eoyote from look ing inside, and in this coop all six of tht hounds ride. We drive along until we sec a coyote a.nrl then edge up towar him, sometimes getting ns close as j yards. The animal looks us over and sees that we have no dogs'running 1 with us, and doesn't even try to get out oi the way, for he thinks he don't have to bother himself about a wagnn. We get as close ns we can and then from the front seat pull a string t-hat pulls open the sides of the coop. The dogs have been waiting and are on the ground in an instant, fairly tumbling o^er each THE COYOTE ON THE -BUN. other in the eagerness to get a good start. As'for the coyote—well, he looks about as surprised as any nnimnl well :an, and no doubt wonders what kind of a^ traveling circus has just been turned loose nt him. But his surprise don't last long, for he finds that the dog* are almost up to him, and then lie beg'ins to run. "This is just the beginning' of the fun for us, nnd away we go, over ditches, through fences and down ravines, and we are generally not very far'behind when the dog-s stop him. When you run jack rabbits the fun is over when the dogs catch the game. When you stop a ooyotu the fun has just, commenced, This iden that a coyote fights by snapping is all foolishness. They .snap ones ir twice a.nd then they go at it like julliiogs, nnd when they once get hold .hey hang there, lean tell you. As soon is my dogs stop one [.jump out of the .vagon and run to help them. The best fighter in my pack is nlways in front, and the first thing he does is to maku i dash for the coyote's throat. -If lie jatcbea his first hold on the coyote's neck the fight don't last long, for the other dogs back him up. A. dog gets old of each hind leg and they stretch ,ini out.'while the balance of the pack soon kill him. Sometimes the lead dog nisses his first plunge, and the coyote rrabs him by the car or jaw, and then •he hound bocks out of the hunch, pull- ng"the coyote with him for the animal von't let go. Then I help him a little. With a stick I tap the coyote on the icad, and he lets .go hie hold. The dog ie has bitten is a,littJe shy at first, but rub him on the back and encourage li'ci a little, and soon heisin themiddlo f t.he fifrtt once more snapping fierce- y.

Sometimes, of course, the logs get cut up a littJc, but that only coins to make them more anxious to pj-pi nt the next coyote, judging from •he way tbcy .tumble out of the wagon 'when f turn them loose again.

Something of tha Life and (littery of the Son and Uelr of the Recently AflflMHlnnted Ninir-o<l-D»n. Mouzaffer ed-Din, the present shah of Persin, is in easy circumstances. The royal treasure, which is kept in the vaults of the palace of Teheran, was increased enormously during the reign of his father. Nnssr ed-Diu. Sentinels stand da 3- and night in front of a.sealed door which lends to a crypt where millions in pold and silver are hid. ns well as nuggets of the precious metals. The shah, in order to be close to his treasure, ha* his private apartments immediately above the vaults. Besides these riches, which arc estimated at OTCT $200,000,000. .the shnb also has a. treasure ill lit up in one of the apartments of his palaee. This is composed of pearls, •nbins, emeralds and other precious item's, among 1 which there is a magnifi- ent diamond, which, on nccountof its nirc boa uty, is called "the Seaof Light." Just now the French papers are giv- ifi;; n. p'ood deal of space to the present «!iah of Persia, but probably the best nc- •omit of him is given in the Journal -3es Drl-nts. ' "At. the entrance to the palace," writes he Debats* correspondent, "I was re- oivod by three personages who spoke •rench with ease. .They were the pphow of the valynh'd and two of his nids-ele-wimp. and I was not a little sur- to Jieara military band,composed of youiifr fellows, playing in a perfectly ci-ptu-bli!. fashion a quadrille from the Cloches -de Corneville,' and also some 're null waltzes and . oriental pieces, i-liich the car must be accustomed to ii order to take in thoroughly al) the melancholy tones. ."The. next day I was presented to the in the same building.

Tabriz, tie resi- (Icnce of the heirs to the throne, which, he could not leave except with the consent of his father. ' It is a capital to which it is difficult to learn much of the outside world. Nevertheless, the prince did -his utmost to pet some knowledge of the colossal mechanism of fife in. Europe, where he would, have loved to travel if his father had not always refused him permission. His inquiring mind constantly went beyond the frontier to wjiic.h .he was. limited. He loves a nomadic life, and he used to pass the summer season under a tent in some .fresh valley, and near the banks of a river. He is a magnificent horseman, and when the heat of the day wan over he mounted a superb Arab steed and, followed by about 20 horseman, galloped over the sandy.plain to reach some distant garden; and, when the sim came near the horizon during Uiatcolm and imposing hour in the east, when nn- ture begins to sleep, assuming the most beautiful colors, -he dismounted at, the top of some hill. .Immediately the horsemen follow his example. A servant stretched upon the ground a fine carpet, and the prince, with his face turned toward Mecca, said his evening prayer in the surrounding-solitude. He is a great hunter! and it was in t-he chase that he learned to be a great horseman and a most expert shot. He loved to hunt the wild sheep in the rocky mountains and the deep gorge* of the Baba-Baghi, and. also the bear of the summits of the Sehemd. He traveled from morning to evening on horseback, passing- with intrepidity from owe mountain to another, riding over steep hills and down dangerous slopes, never stopping excepting to .take aim at the flocks of wild sheep which passed along like clouds. Ileuses with extraordinary skill the military rifles of Russia, Austria and Germany, but he has never been able to obtain the French rifle, which he would have .preferred above all. Ois hunting expeditions, always wild aud dangerous, were .often .composed of 200 or 300 liersons, a.nd they often continued for several dnys. At home he chat.? familiarly with the persons of his suite, and walks about in nis gardens, in which he is greatly interested and which, about t year ago, he turned over to the care of a Freneh giirilener.
