We spent the latter part of last
week at Dodire City attending the
Southwestern Kansas Teachers' As
sociation. We had a good meeting all
tlilncs considered, and feel repaid for
the time and money spent In attend
ing this association. We did not ask
for the next association to- come to
Liberal. We thought we had better
wait a year or two and see whether
that railroad between Liberal and
Garden City becomes more than a
dream. Sewarj County had but two
In attendance Prof. Rlndom-and
Mary E. Todd. Supt. Fahchild was
too busy with the legislature- to at
tend the association. We all regret
ted this, very much. Prof.. Wm. A.
McKeever of Manhattan got as far
as Topeka, but the railroad officials
would not let him board No. 3 to
Dodge. This was a great disappoint
ment to many as we had anticipated
a splendid address from him Friday
evening. However, Prof. Glotfelth
of Emporia gave us-a fine address on
The Conservation of Resources. Dean
Charles H. Johnson of Emporia open
ed up a new field of thought to nearly
everyone present as he gave his ad
dress on Habit Formation And Habit
Breaking in School Life, This ad
dress was worth more to us than the
entire cost of attending the associa
tion. We hope some day to have the
Professor come out here and address
the teachers of Seward county. Mis
ses Julia M. Stone and Elizabeth
Agnew gave us two excellent addres
ses. Prof. E. L. Holton of Manhat
tan gave us an address on Vocational
Education which was enjoyed by all.
He is an earnest worker lor the rural
schools of . Kansas. He told us he
might be able to come to Southwest
ern Kansas while out visiting rural
schools, and if he did, he would try
to come to Seward county and visit
some of the rural schools at least and
see If they are coming up id trie
standard required by the state.
We had the pleasure of meeting the
Misses Mary and Birdie Weaver while
in Dodge City and exchanging greet
ings with them. Both are well satis
tied with their schools and school
We also met Miss Davis, sister of
Miss Hilda Davis who is teaching the
eighth grade here. She is a very
pleasant young laay. .
While in Dodge we had a very pleas
ant auto ride .with Mrs. Cornelius,
wife of the pastor of the Christian
church of Liberal..
' Mr. Scates erected us very cordially
as we met him on the street one day.
We would have been pleased to call
on Mrs. Scates had she been in town,
but she was out of town on a visit.
We had tne pleasure or visiung
Mr. Herbert Hobble's sister one even
ing after the lecture. She invited us
to dinner the next day and sent an
auto for us to the Christian church
where we held our general meetings.
We also met a few old friends with
whom we attended Normal at Em
poria five or six years ago and the

for the Adjutant whp showed us
throutrh the barracks where we saw
some of the "Angels", and through
the commissary. Kveryining is Kepi

are glad that the soldiers have such
a .pleasant Home, uoa Diess mem:
They deserve it, every one! They
have a nice church, an excellent hos
pital and also a good school in which
three teachers are employed. Taking
it all In all the Home is just tine in
every way. When we observed a

come of the buildings when all the
old soldiers had been mustered out
Into the irreat bevond. it was sug
gested that it might be turned over

home in their declining years, for

service to the state as had the old
soldiers. Those are our sentiments
We want to tender our thanks to
Prof. Rindom for his kinduess to us
while we were on this trip. We drove
over from Dodge to Mlnneola Satur
