??The Philantrophic Spirit Tha
Should Actuate The Teacher,"
A Paper by J. H. Lewis,
an Edgefield Youth at
The University of
It is related of Rousseai
that, on the occasion of OD<
of his foot journeys througl
France and Italy, he stopped fo
refreshment and restin apeasaut'i
cabin. The wretchedness of hu
man misery, as he there saw it, in
spired him with profound sorro?
for humanity and equally profounc
hatred for the rich classes ; those
who were living at the expense o:
the unspeakable sufferings of the
poor peasants. It is to this shod
to his very sensitive nature thai
we owe to a great extent the volume
that has moved the human hearl
more deeply than any other pro
duction of human pen. There are
some who will not, perhaps, agree
with me, but when I read some ol
his sentences like these: "0 men,
be humane! it is your highest
iuty; be humane to all conditions
ii men, to every age, to everything
aot alien to maukind. What higher
wisdom is there for you than hu
nanity? Love childhood, encour
age its sports, its pleasures, its
ovable instincts." I cannot feel
mt that Rousseau had a philan
hrophic spirit. It is his humanity
hat gives him a degree of uni'y,
ionsi8tency, and even of beauty,
br bis life otherwise was very
ouch disordered and degraded.
Llthough he was an inspired tramp
nd did not even regard the sacred
ie of marriage, yet it was, in. part,
lousseau's pen that fired the train
hat brought about the American
devolution, and also the French
devolution. Both events were
riumphs of humanity over op
ression. So we see it was not bis
bility as teacher that gave him
is fame, which has lived so long,
nd which shall live throughout
be ages, but his humane spirit.
Next let us mention Comenius
ho lived a century before Rous
ime reached our shores (in 1654
e was invited to become president
f Harvard College) although
'hen he started in his life work he
r&s only a Moravian pastor. It is
aid he loved the people so much
hat ho quit preaching and became
, teacher. Learning in his time
ras a prerogative only of the few,
iut it was the desire of Comenius
o establish a syntem of education
o far reaching that every home
?&B to become a school. He com
>osed a school manual, the "Orbis
'ictus," which was translated iuto
rarious languages, and became the
miversal text book for two cen
uries. The greatness of Comenius
v&B due to the- fact that he was
ibove all else a philanthropist. He
mew the people, saw their wretch
edness, and he became a martyr
for their cause. He believed the
people were perishing for lack of
sducation and so he arranged a
scheme for their salvation.
Let us come back to a period fl
little nearer our own time, and we
find a Swiss youth whose soul waE
burning with love for the poor, op
pressed, degraded people. Hit
first impulse was to be a preacher
but he failed in his first sermon
Then he tried law, but some un
pleasantness in his experience
cooled his political ardor. He thei
turned agriculturist, for he saw h(
could do very much for the poor ir
this way; but his scheme soor
failed, after he had spent all hil
own means, and also that whicl
his dear wife possessed when the]
married. This Swiss philanthropis
was not to be out done in his doinf
something for humanity. As a las
resort this man, Pestalozzi, set up i
school and gathered in the out-cus
children of bis neighborhood. Thi
story of his life is the most pa
thetic ever written. From hil
twentieth to his eightieth year hi
had but one purpose, to relieve tb
wretchedness of his poor country
men. He had discovered that poli
tical reforms and industrial im
provements could not reach th
seat of the social disease, and s
he laid his axe at the very root o
the tree, he gathered up vagran
children, became their nurse, sei
vant, and teacher and gave the.:
lessons in cleanliness, good mar
ners, morals, and in the element
of education. Pestalozzi in th
midst of his children forgot ths
there was any other world beside
his asylum. From morning ti
night he was the centre of thei
existence. Whatever hardshi
t they had to bear he becam

suffer? Had Louis XVI put 1

awful night of pitiless storm.
It has been thc tendency ever
make a monopoly or leami?g, a
learning is disposed tobe aris
eratic. In all ages of the woi
men have attempted to make
monopoly of learning. Ancienl
the priestly class was great, I
cause it was the only educat
? class, and it continued ?B G
thority by keeping learning frc
M the masses. Popular ignoran
s was the condition of priest

? places there ie a tendency to ec

.] We hope our readers haye caught
1] the spirit of our writing, and can
already see what the conclusion of
(j our article must be. We have set
jj forth some characters that have
lived in history almost altogether
on account of their being philau
)] j thropists-lovers of humanity. We
. have done this fora special pur
! j pose. We have not taken the time
?( for research, for study, and for
writing this article for mere past
il time, but that some of our fellow
>; teachers may be somewhat profited.
It is our heart's desire and prayer
I to God that all the people may be
. educated, and we appeal to
? the teachers who may read thif. ar
ele that they will give some thought
to it, and during this school j ear
try to put the humane element into
their teaching, for without this hu
mane spirit which possessed Rous
seau and Pestalozzi no one can be
come a true teacher.
So in your work, brother teacher,
this year, if you have not in the
past, divest your work of formality,
and take your pupils into your
sympathy, be as a father to them,
and let them be as your children.
Teaching, we fear, has become too
much like some of our formal
preaching. We have seen-you
have too-preachers of the gospel
go into tho pulpit to preach, and
they did not preach as if they were
addressing dying men, who had
immortal souls to save. The min
ister was paid to preach ou ham
and he preached on ham. The
prayer echoed the sentiment of no
penitent soul. As we have said,
much teaching is like this kind of
preaching. It has no sense of
nearness to the pupils. The phil
anthropic-instinct is wanting. It
is as though the instruction was
address* d to matter and not to
heart and epirit and life.
To show the readers more par
ticUlaily what we mean we will T
oxob uia ana one day he
said to this certain pupil : "You
are doing well with your studies
this year, if you will finish a cer
tain course of study you will be
prepared 'to teach in the public
schools next winter." It was a
revelation to the youngman. That
was what he had been working for;
it waa his aporet. So the year pass
ed away and the young man be
came a teacher. The young man
went out with that humane spirit
of his teacher and did his best to
lift up the fallen and the ignorant,
and as a partial result some of his
pupils are now taking a college
I have a special friend who was
)nce a country lad in New York
State. One winter he was going
0 school to a young teacher whose
vhole heart was in his work. He
warded abont with his pupils,
rhis friend of raine was accom
>anying his teacher home one
vening over a snowy way when the
eacher said: "William, would
ou not like to go up to thc high
chool next year?" William said,
Yes, I would." The teacher said,
If you study algebra and geome
ry I think you will be prepared
)go next year." He studied them
nd went up to the high school,
od as a result this friend of mine
scame a man of learning, and is
Dw the chancellor of a university.
1 these examples we see the mo
ves that can be employed by a
illful teacher who keeps himself
close sympathy with his pupils.
It was nearness through sym
,thy that made our Savior so
nen beloved by the poor people
3 came to heal the broken-heartpd
d to save that which was lost
to make a good teacher we must
ve somewhat of His spirit.
Now, as a means to bring the
;her institutions of learning in
ich with the people. We think
i very best thing to accomplish
R with is to hold institutes in
country districts. We think a
d way would be to hold several
?ach county. Let the board em
y a good man to conduct the
titutee in about four places in
h county every year. This
ld, of course, be done for a cost
IU25 to $150 a year. The places
mlding these institutes should
be the same every year. By
kind of procedure the people
ld become interested in educa
tioD. The institutes are held foi
the benefit of the teachers pri
marily, but it will do much foi
patrons in giving them inspiration
if they are brought in contad
with the institutes. We should bf
glad to write more on this part ol
the subject, but we have not time
In conclusion we would say tc
our fellow teachers : "Be humane !
it is your highest duty ; be humane
to all conditions of men, to every
age, to everything not alien to man
kind. Love childhood, encourage
its sports, its pleasures, its lovable

The Philosophy of Rotation.
By S. C. Cameron.
It is well understood by most
farmers that rotation of crops is
beneficial because this system ex
hausts the soil much less then the
constant growing of a single crop
would, but why this is so, a good
many do not know and have not
stopped to inquire.
The plowing of a sod for corn
to be followed in turn by oats,
wheat, clover, is probably the ro
tation that is most generally used.
We follow this plan practically be
cause it gives good resutis, and if
we begin to theorize we find that it
is a logical system and that the
sequence of crops is correct.
Clover is a gatherer of nitrogen,
which is the costliest element
needed in the growth of plants,
though very abundant in nature.
It ie hard to get in an available
shape for use by growing plants,
and clover is the readiest agent at
our disposal to trap nitrogen from ,
the air and store it in the soil for ]
the use of future crops. The roots ,
of clover crops will furnish plant <
food for the succeeding crop to a
great extent, and if to this is ad- !
ded the manure made from feed- '
ing tlje hay made from the clover ?
and the wheat and oats straw, to- ,
gether with the stalks of the corn, 4
the farmer may eontinue the rota- ,
tion indefinitely, selling the wheat ?
and oats if he will and yet not ex- t
haust the soil. s
Corn gathers a part of the nitro- 1
gen it needs from the air, leaving
the greater portion of that gather
ed by the clover in the soil for the i
use of the crop of wheat and oats, j
both of which are poor nitrogen ?
traps. The grasses help the ac
cumulation of nitrogen in the soil c
LD two ways : First, by gathering 0
it from the air, and second, by j
where and this is due to the fact
that potatoes gather but little less
nitrogen than corn does, and the
land is left by the crop in good
condition for the whaat that fol
lows. Where potatoes can be
grown with profit, a good rotation
and one founded on a sound basis
is, clover, potatoes, wheat, be
ginning at clover again.
One of tho best farmers we ever
knew followed a rotation of clover
mown for hay one year and pas
tured the next, then corn, oats and
wheat and clover again. His farm
was noted for its large crops, and
for a generation he kept his man
aer of farming up, and to-day it is
better than ever and never a pound
}f commercial fertilizer has been
ised on it.
Cotton Seed Meal.
Of late years cotton seed mea
