Dr. Soloan Ib not the first educator

Information, but as an oxperf on ed

quoted. After speaking of the history
of education in tho United States as
"Illustrious" and describing the part
tho government, through Its bureau of
education, has played, ho says: "It
has saved uncalculated millions to ed
ucational effort morely through Its
punctual record of each and every
educational enterprise, every attempt
ed reform, evory individual Initiative.
It has prevented duplication of ex
periment, reported educational prog

Education Is International. No mat
ter how local and national certain of
Its probloms may be, tho funda

all civilized countries; and It Is sure
ly worth knowing that In this inter

States bears no small part.

In the Grand Canyon the liiizhe't
sides are 0,833 feet above the strram,
but they are perpendicular for only
some 3,000 feet, when the gloomy
chaern is often bua a few hundreds
of feat wide. Above that the sides
slope oil in a series of cliffs to the
level of the surrounding country, and
if the world lasts long enough, and
a greater rainfall should come, a
Jeep and wide valley will exist there
some day. It would be folly to at
tempt to say when the erosion that
