Their Failings and Qualities
Described by One of Them.
How an Observer Can Pick Female
Pedagogues Out of a Crowd.
Little Mnuneriama Which Glvo Bchool

What They Should Aim
Miss Peter of Pomona read the follow
ing paper before the County Educational
association last week:
Not long since 1 was seated in a
railroad car and as it stopped at a cer
tain station, the door was opened and
two ladies entered, taking seats directly
in front of me.
As they walked down the aisle I
heard a young girl remark to her com
panion, "There, those are two school
ma'ania, 1 am sure of it."
As I am a school teacher myseif, this
remark aroused my attention and I ob
served the ladies more closely to Bee
what there was in their appearance to
give rise to euch a speech and to see if
the observations were true.
It wes undoubtedly true. School
ma'am was written on every lineament.
Every movement bespoke the peda
gogue. If there had been the slightest
shadow of a doubt in regard to the occu
pation of these ladies, their conversa
tion, which I could not help hearing,
would have dissipated it.
But what waa there in their appear
ance that proclaimed so plainly their
After carefully considering the sub
ject for some time, I concluded that it
was something in the manner of these
ladies which led me to know that they
were school teachers.
These little mannerisms are almost in
describable, but there are two or three
things which perhaps might he men
First, and most apparent, is the
fashion many teachers have of making
statements iv a very decided opinion
ated way. as if when that statement has
been made nothing more can be said ou
the subject. It gives people the im
pression that the one speaker considers
the world one vast school-room and
imagines herself chief instructor.
Another distinguishing characteristic
is that some teachers cannot hear a
grammatical error or a mispronounced
word without visibly longing to correct
the offender. They cannot see a child
commit a breach of etiquette without
administering a look or word of re
Again, teachers generally cannot re
frain from talking "shop," If with peo
ple of the same occupation they are sure
to talk little else, and if with other peo
ple it takes all the self-control of which
they are possessed to keep from do
If you think these statements unttve
please watcli yourseif and your 'ellow
workers, and you will find either that
these failings exist or tbat the teacher
is exempting herself fro:r. the stamp of
schoolma'am by the most careful watch
Granting it true, why is it? Dars t
say it b.iore a body of intelligent teach
ers' The tendency of our profession is
to make us narrow.
Let us notice the failings mentioned ;
ar.d see if there is any reason for them.
We said that"teachers become opinion
ated. In tho Bchool room the teacher iB
the authority, and she must to
a certain txteut make her pupils
realize this fact. She cannot be suc
cessful if Bhe is unable to inspire them
with confidence in herself and in her
statements She is constantly asso
ciated with those who know less than
she dees, and her words are received as
law and gospel by those whom she in
structs, it strange that she forgets
sometimes when out of the school-room
that she is not dealing with inferior
agala, the helpful teacheruiust needs
he a watchful oue ; she must be the sen
tinel to call a halt in case faulty ex
pressions or manners invade her do
main. When this habit of beiug on tbe
alert constantly is once formed, can it
be thrown off the moment the echool
rontndoor is locked at night?
Ine third point spoken ot was tbe
tendency V talk of their work.
People iv all walks of life acquire this
hal.it to a certain extent, but we seldom
tiiid a lawyer who talks nothing but law
or a merchant who talks nothing but
business. Many teacheis seem to de
light but in the one subject of school.
This undoubtedly proves the absorbing
interest that teachers have in their
work, and this devotion to the caose of
education is all very laudable, but we
cannot expect people in general to (eel
about these things exactly as we do our
selvee and naturally they will uot care
to hear them talked of constantly.
We are ready to concede tbe point
tbat the teacher has abundant reasons
fur her distinguishing characteristics—
yer. even the things which unite to
make her a success in her work help to
make her a crank. Bat tbe world sees
the effect and not the cause, and criti
cizes accordingly. The important point
with us is, is there a remedy?
"Yes," some one will say, "you
should mingle in society and read gen
For an instant let us look at a very
few of the thiugs which teachers should

LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY IU, 1893.
night and day to accomplish the work
set before her. H. r evenings she spends
in careful preparation for the work of
i the coming day; her nightß are often
spent in planning how John can be made
more honorable and manly, or how
James can be more deeply interested in
She goes to school in the morning
tired, but with a grim determination to
bring everything up to her standard.
She works under high preesure ail day,
and goeß home to carry out tbe gro
gramme of tiie previous evening.
Has she read that instructive new
book in which her friends are all so
much interested? No, she has but little
time for reading, and when Bhe does
have time she feels tbat she mußt read
books that 'car directly upon school
Has she met that new family that has
recently moved into the neighborhood?
They are exceptionally interesting and
cultivated people. No, Bhe has not time
to devote to society, and when Bhe goes
in company she feels ill ut ease —she
goes so seldom.
Miss LS. is also a conetiientiouß young
woman, and has a sincere longing to
benefit every child entrusted to her
care, but you will not find her spending
her time as does Miss A.
After school closes at night, she spends
a short time in planning the next day's
work. She then takeß a walk and enjoys
the beautiful rammer day, very likely
she stops to chat with some pleasant
friend or to make a short informal call
upon a patron of iter school. Her even
ing is spent in reading a good book, pos
sibly a novel, or in going out to a social
gathering or an entertainment. The
night ehe spends iv reiieshiug, whole
some sleep and on the morrow Bhe en
ters her school room with an elastic
step and a bounding heart. Her chil
dren are confident of receiving a bright,
happy Ernile from her, and her lessons
are bright and attractive, not because of
the studied preparation but because Bhe
has the physical vigor and consequent
enthusiasm to brighten them.
At the end nf live years people learn
to say : "It seems to me that Miss A. is
not as interesting as she used to be;
she is getting dictatorial and almost
disagreeable; even the children speak of
it. How old ehe ia beginning to look,
too. I fear her health is not good."
It is quite different with Miss B.; she
is welcome everywhere, and is always
spoken of as a most agreeable person.
She looka as well and happy as possible
and no one hints that she is getting old.
The difference between these two
teachers is that one is a school ma'am,
the other a woman. Cannot the
teacher be a woman witli all a woman's
feelings, aspirations and sympathies? Is
itnecssary for her to become a dis
agreeable, raßping machine?
Could we remember that when we
enter the great body of public school in
structors we have not sold ourselves
body and soul to the state but have
pledged to it our most efficient service.
Our country demands that our public
schoolß shall send 'orth broad-minded,
good principled, loyal citizens. Can
they ever Ij this if our children are
domi"..,.ea by narrow, cramped school
teachers unless nature mercifully coun
teracts their inllnence?
There is no thought which brings
with it a greaterweight of responsibility
to the teacher than the one "what we
are we teach."
The child is a keen interpreter of
character, and our own worth stampß
itself upon his plßstic personality, our
limitations lower his horizon and our
expanding thoughts broaden his view.
May we nit tind inspiration in the
thought that in trying to avoid becom
ing narrow ourselves, we are helping
our pupils to reach a higher plane of

against two of the most deplorable deform

dullness in the hard worked and vanity ln
the idle, each of which brings many a man

Some young people are so constituted as to

two well Known instances of men highly

wandering about alone to the engrossing
occupation of football or cricket. Rous

study in an attempt to master the game
uf chess, but though he persevered in re
pented endeavors they all came to nothing,
for as often aa he sat down to a game all
that he had learned went out of his head.
Rut such instances are exceptional, and in
most characters hard work unrelieved by
competitive games is apt to produce
"graovineas" and superfluous leisure stu

Sleight of Hand Poisoning.
A very curious item in toxicologioal
lore I chanced to light upon may he
called the feat of poisoning by sleight of
hand. You were jealous of a lady and
you wished to kill her. Well, you asked
her to lunch, and you caused a very nice
peach to be served at dessert. Yon cut
the fruit with a golden knife, one side
of tbe blade of which was endued with
a deadly poison. You presented the
poisoned half of the peach to the lady,
who ate it with much relish and then
dropped down dead.
The wholesome half you ate yourself,
and laughed in your sleeve, and went
on slicing more peaches for the ladies of
whom you were jealous—till you were
found out-and broken on the wheel. Aye,
there's tho futvl What high old times
we might have, to be sore, but for that
plaguey contingency of belli? found out

The women who apply for places are
very hard to get rid of. When informed
that there is no vacancy they usually
say, "The secretary cau always make
one more place." Many of them make
most humble and pathetic appeals, say
ing, "For pity's sake, let me scrub tho
floors or do anything by which I may
earn my bread." Yet these same indi
viduals, after securing situations and
occupying them for two or three days,
are pretty suro to demand three things
-promotion, leave of absence aud light
er work. Women can never be con
vinced that there is any sincerity in the
civil service law. Thoy almost always
think that they can got around it and
secure place* io the classified service
