The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 81



The question is quite naturally asked as to what success the system has met. Although the Republic is still in its infancy enough has been done to prove the great efficiency of the plan. Many children who were leading lives of idleness page 12 and crime have been placed on the road to good citizenship. Very few have proved failures. Of the boys who have gone out from the Republic may be found farmers, carpenters, plumbers, printers, bakers, pattern makers, book keepers, stenographers, salesmen, one an agent for a telegraph company, another a buyer for a New York Department Store, an expert in agricultural implements, and newspaper men. A number of boys have been through college and several are still there. Those who have graduated are now making for themselves places of honor and responsibility in the world. Two are lawyers, and one a civil engineer. The girls may be found in housework at home, married, in preparatory school, in domestic service, factories, dressmaking, etc. One has been teacher of dietetics in the Harrisburg State Hospital, now married to a physician.
