I AN ADDRESS
Delivered by Prof. V. G. Kee on Dec ist, before the
First District Educational Association at Princeton, Ky
I I lie cotiiiootioii of ohildrou with
i their ctivironiuont is a u6stion that
I very early in tho oaroor of every
teacher, prosonts itnolf. One docs
not have to teach long to learn that
the and agreeable children
liavo been reared in orderly homos,
while the unruly and viseioun arc
eoinc from homos not well regulated.
There h no turer index to the domes
tic life than the representative girl
or boyjfroni six to fourteen years old.
Occasionally good men have conic
from improper biirrouudtngs and have
been ureal in spite of thoir environment,
but they arc an exception to
the uitual rule. It is not only a dig-position
of tho child to be influenced
by ilti Burroimdings, but oi the
rogardlc.s.s ol age. It js
thought that long association with
those mentally unbalanced will tend
toward'iusauity in tho portion so associating.
Wb aro unconsciously influenced
for good or bad by tho company
we koop, by the bookH wo read,
i. . , by oureiivironinont. All association
of soulwis productive in varying
degrees of assimilation. Wo are imitate
creature and children aro especially
io. In habit, in thought,
in action, in everything this is true.
Our first knowledge of language is
ilitHinod by imitation. Wo follow
patterns in srorything. Whothor wo
will or no, we liko to follow in beaten
path, and in undertaking any new
thing our first dsairo is to lindout
Imi.v it has boon dona by n
Again, net only are we imitative
creatures but, by the law of association
our miudi) tend to repeat an act
or thought once dono or conceived.
This trait of mind is at once the most
potont for good and for ill. Under
it all our habits aio formed, both
good and bad. When we consider
that childhood is the formative period
of life and that to whatovcr influences
the child mind i subjected, it will
be shaped accordingly, how much
should we as toaohcrs realize our responsibilities
ii. tho mattor! When
wo remember that a largo percent of
our pupils, do not have propor sur
roundings at homo, that many of
thorn caused from
families, how wo should be impressed
to do our duty toward thorn in the
matter of moral and religious
Have we not all been impress
ed both by our professional press and
by the secular press, during the last
few months, that the times arc demanding
more than even that the
teacher shall bo both a potent, moral
and religious factor in his commuityV
The state of New York has enacted
laws requiring regular courses in
ethics to be taught in all schools receiving
state aid. The iicstion of
moral training in public schools is
the burning iiostion of today among
educators. Just in tho same degree
us the public school of the future, so
in tho same degree is it going to bo
expected that moral ethics be taught.
The tondoncy toward church union
that has manifested itself of late in
our county has already bean helpful
to toaohcrs in this work. There is
now scarcely any objection anywhere
to the Hiblo in school, oven with judicious
eommont. There are some public
schools iu Kentucky today where
before entering upon tho duties of
each days woik all the pupils and
toaohcrs are assembled into a larc
auditorium built for that purpose
when the Bible, the greatest book
yet known on morals is road and explained.
When songs are sung and
prayer it made. It is a fact that in
all such schools the problem of
is greatly simplified. In such
schools the pupils nro early impress
ed with thoir individual losprosibility
for thoir individual uonduct. In
such schools those who do not got
moral and religious instruction any
where else have tho opportunity of
learning lossons of true' wisdom and
become early pososscd with a noble
ambition to do something iu tho
world that it may 'jecoinc bettor by
thoir having lived it it.
For those reasons it is becomiug
all the more necessary that teachers
shall thomselvos be believing Chris
tians. It is gouorally conceded that
our nation is becoming more intellec
tual, but (ioddoltvcr us from an age
of pure reason. France experienced
such an age and her awful example
will sorvc as a warning for all coming
ages. Let us hope that we are
also becoming a more devout people.
With this increased spirituality then
will come a deeper professional zeal.
Just to that dogree that' we can appreciate
the great Divine love, we
will ourselves take on a deeper love
for our work and a. desire to benefit
humanity. Every superintendent
knows tho difference in results of
a teacher who is really in love with
her pupils and who has won their affections
and one whoso pupils obey
her through fear. How many times
have we know pupils to become fond
of unaotractivc studies in which they
had little or no irucrost when they
had found out thoir teacher was really
in loro with them and solicitious
for their welfare. Many times a love
for a study is in the final 'analysis
only a fondness for the teacher.
That teacher who can popularize
difioult subjoots is a success.
Thou, too. how difioront tho discipline
in tho rospootivo rooms.
When love resigned tborc was no nood
for. any othor master. That diciplinc
is host that onlls least attoutiou to
Not only does the question of environment
pertain to the future of the
child, but by it his prosont happiness
and succoss a student is largely determined.
It is a fact that only when
the mind is free from care and anxiety
is it capable of acquiring knowledge.
How often have teachers complained

DR. F. S. STILWELL,
Over Marion Bank
TI1K OLD WAY
of having chronic idlers in their
rooms, the minds of which pupiis
wero brooding over some great burden
oppressing their youthful physi
cal and mental vigor, Wc arc too
much disposed to tb'nk that childhood
is free from care. I think I
have seen little boys griovo as gener
ously over tho loss of a marble as his
fathor could over the loss of a favorite
horse. 1 1 tit this only faintly de
scribes tho cause for day-dreaming
among students. Many times there
may be some domestic infilicity that
is disturbing their minds. This leads
me to say it is impossible to make
tho success in teaching a child whose
home life wc arc not acquainted with.
It Is a part of the child, and tcahcr
can rightly understand the child.'s nature
of whose home-life she is unacquainted.
For this reason 1 think
it should be a part of the regulations
of every school, for the teachers to
visit their pupils homes. Not only
does it put the teacher in possession
of valuable information but also is
conducive of bringing about a healthful
spirit of co-operation between the
teacher and parent, without which
success is impossible. No doubt
many a child has been punished for
things for which his envioronment
alone was responsible.
Nor is it sufficient that the teacher
be an inspiration to her pupils
and an example. The same general
high moral tone that pcrvatcs the
class room should be maintained on
the play grounds. The superintendent
that permits bad language, smoking,
unfair play and rowdyism on the
play-grounds is not worthy of his
hinh office. The way to prevent these
tilings is to got out among tho pupils
in a companionable way and respect
for your presence, if you arc maintaining
your propor respect and dignity
is necessary. How often has it
boon charged and justly too that "my
son learned to chew, smoke or even
swoar at school!" Would that the
moral atmosphere about every school
house were such that all its patrons
could feel that thoir children instoad
of acquiriug mischievous habits, were
being morally uplifted! No other
factor is going to tell in the future
so much for the success of a school as
this one. This one thing can help
solve in large measure the question
of attendance. It works both ways.
It k;eps the parents confidence unshaken
in the efficiency of the school
and makes him feci that his child can
not afford to bo without its wholesome
influence. It makes the child a proper
self respecting person with confidence
that he or she will become in
the future an important personage in
the community. Virtue, honesty,
sobriety, and truth aro admired by
everybody. Let it be known that
your school stands for these things
and it is by far the best advertisement
it cmi have. .There may be
some who have so far strayed from
right paths that thoy do not feel
comfortable a iu whole environment.;
but as a rule there is no surer
card. All men love virtue, even
those who do not practice it.
No character is perfect that docs
not contain as constituent elements,
justice, morcy, benevolence, humanity,
aud patience. Nor
is conduct praiseworthy until it has
been prompted by these motives. I
euro little tor conduct that is not inspired
by right motives. It is true
that the child's will should be subservient
to the teacher's or parents'
will until ho gets old enough for his
own will to control his conduct. Then
let him be thrown on his own responsibility.
Then lot the teacher insist
on his doing right for rights sake.
Wo hoar too much of natural depravity
and of that which is inherent
in us causing us rather to do wrong
than right. I believe there is as
much real pleasuro in a healthy moral
exoroiso as iu health that physical
aud mental exorcisos. All of us have
known children who seemed to take
tho greatest possible pleasure iu
right. All our unhappincss in
this world coinos as a rule from the
violation of somo moral or physical
law. Teach tho child as oarly as possible
t,hat true pleasure is to be found
alone in right conduct. The greatest
phiJqsophCjrs of all t,ime has taught
this and indeed among the Greeks
and Romans it was their only solace.
Hut since we know the Greek and
Roman morals failed to give the
highest pleasure, wc arc not to lcaTO
our pupils to depend oti them. Thcj
were good so far as thoy went, but
there can be no perfect morals without
Christianity. Tho religious man
is essentially a moral man and the
highest morality comes only througk
This brings me to uotico some
moans ior aiding good morals. The
consciousness of having accomplished
well and faithfuljy any assigned
task yields more strength. Self reliance
must at all stages of'thopupiU
career be insisted upon Re careful
to allow no opportunity for cheating
on tests. Many are probably started
into dishonest paths in this way. It
is good morals to teach your pupils
that their diploma will avail thorn
nothiug. That thoy must carry it
through the world and that it can not
be rclitd on, to carry them.

pupils? Those of us who do may
be sure they are reading somothing.
It is the height of folly to keep pupils
going over and over again the
regular reading lessons. They become
stale and uninteresting. It is
not the work pupils do that jades
them, but the drudgery that unthinking
teachers sometime impose. Work
is as pleasant and upbuilding in the
realm of mind as anywhere else.
There is moral value in proper read
ing and if it occasions a great deal of
work, well, for work in propor also
has great moral value.
