1 1 Educational j
In the "Advertiser" of January
22nd. and 23rd., there appeared
articles from the pen of the Rev.
At the time of reading them, I,
like the majority of teachers, had
no time to devote to scribbling, so
was obliged to await a more fitting
opportunity which at last came
during the Easter vacation. It may
seem strange to sav "no time,"
since we, as teachers, seem to be
accredited with many waste hours
in which to amuse ourselves, but
in point of fact, even a week's
vacation hardly gave me a chance
to answer the article, since re
ports, term's plans programs, and
a multiplicity of school matters
kept me pretty busy during the
greater part of the week's rest. ?
In reference to a remark the Rev.
gentleman m a d e in comparing
stenographers' work with 'that of
lie says the former works from
8 to 5, deducting one hour for
lunch. L,et us examine the teachers'
hours. In a large majority o f
cases, they, too, have exactly the
same hours, except that they only
have half an hour at luncheon time.
If the teacher does not go to the
school room at 8 and remain till 5,
then it is certain that the work
must be done in the evening. She
has all her next day's work to
prepare, stories to find and write
out, daily plan to put in plan book,
pupils' papers to correct, and very
often to help retarded pupils.
The stress of the day with
children whose very English is soul
agonizing, the unsanitary conditions
of schools that have no janitors,
the attacks from ignorant parents,
the worry over truancy cases, and
a legion of trials from each and all
of over 40 pupils; to exhaust the
teacher physically and mentally,
that often both the lighter amuse
ments, and the higher enjoyments
of browsing in libraries, writing
articles, having an hour's music or
painting, have to be given over. If
it were not for the summer vacation
in which to recuperate, few teach
ers, could survive the strain. A
closing remark in the Bishop's
article is to the effect that teachers
must arouse interest, love the work
and be apt to teach. How this can
be accomplished without the vaca
tion month puzzles me. I grant
that the born teacher does manage
to keep alive an interest, even
though she may be over worked;
but it is also quite certain that no
teacher could stand the strain of
the present day methods, without
the chance she gets during the
summer to have a few weeks rest.

One pint of honey. Put it into

Candied Sweet Potatoes
Slice raw potatoes, put a layer
in a dish that can be served at the
table, sprinkle with sugar, butter
and spices, add another layer,
until the dish is full with the but
ter and sugar on top. Bake slow
ly until tender and brown, with a
rich syrup all through. Serve hot.
To make a rich shortcake, pare
half a dozen of oranges, removing
the seeds and white pit and sprink
ling a cupful of white sugar on
them. Spread the oranges gen
erously between the layers on top,
alter the fashion of shortcakes.
Nut frosting is always liked by
children, and little plain cakes
spread with the following mixture
will be an addition to the party
menu: One cupful of confection
er's sugar mixed with a cupful of
cold water, almond flavor, add at
the last moment half a cupful of
finely ground nut meats.
Soft Ginger Cake
Mix together one cupful of brown
sugar and three-quarters of a cup
ful of butter and lard mixed. Add
one egg, well beaten, and one cup
ful of molasses, also one teaspoon
ful each of ginger and cinnamon.
Into one cupful of boiling water
stir two even teaspoonfuls of pow
A part of the vacation is always
taken up with preparation work,
and a large number of the teachers
are attending summer schools for
several weeks. A teacher is ex-,
peeted to be a walking encyclopedia j
and must be conversant with each
and every item i n paper a n d
magazine. Stenographer, trained
nurses and other "skilled" women
would be given if they were not
posted as to the latest discoveries 1
in science, music and art. 'But aj
teacher must have all these at her'
finger tips, and must be familiar1
with the latest magazine articles,
to say nothing of newspapers. She!
is expected, and should be ready,!
to enter social life, and to discuss;
any subject intelligently. 1 li e
Bishop, in speaking of the nervous
strain of teachers, docs not seem
to consider them overworked, when
compared with woman's work ot a
It was a remarkable statement,
but as he is of the laitv in this
case at least, it must be taken as
the result of not knowing the sub
ject in hand. Nearly all the prin
cipals, and a large number of
teachers, have spent time a n d
money upon their education in or
der to become skilled workmen.
The other professions do not oblige
men or women to graduate from a
university before beginning specific
studies. Most of them do graduate,
but it is not obligatory. A teacher
in addition to her education takes
special training, lasting until she
is prepared to take her diploma
from a Normal School. Previous to
this many have spent time i n
boarding schools and colleges.
There is no doubt that steno
graphers have too long hours and
too short vacations; but granting
that, one can clearly see that there,
is no comparison in the nervous
strain, and that few teachers would
be left over for the next year work,
if it were not for the holidays. The
whole mass of humanity owe their
positions largely to teachers and
yet it is amazing, that even among
those who should be liberal mind
ed, and appreciative o f the in
calculable good that has been, and
is being done by that fraternity,
we occasionally find a few who do
not seem to realize this fact. I
certainlv think the Bishop never
could have known the true facts
about the teachers' hours, or he
would not have made the com
parison between them and steno
graphers. I am not writing this
article with any unpleasant feeling
toward the one whom I am answer
ing, but simply in a spirit of justice
toward the teachers.
