Delivered Before the Vinton County
Teachers' Institute, by Prof. Wm. H.
YOUNG, of the Ohio University.
The subject of popular education,
though often discussod, is not yet ex
hausted; though every day handled,
is not worn threadbare; though long
dwelt upon, never becomes staid to the
true man or woman. The education
of the people is too vast an idea to
have reached its full development even
in the nineteenth century; too great
a thought to be greatly comprehended,
too profound a science to be thor
oughly mastered oven by the genius
of our day. There aro deep mines
truth in jt yet unopened. .; There are
broad fields of experience in it yet
untrodden. . There are lofty heights
of .observation in , it yet unsealed.
There are far extended reaches
philosophy in it, that, running paral
lel with human destiny into the dim
future will only bo plain when Heav
en's lights shall shine upon and Divine
Wisdom shall interpret them.' For
the '. education of the people includes
the whole problem, six thousand!
years studied ' and '. 'wrought ' at, in
weariness and pain, sorrow and sigh
ing, ' tears and , blood the whole
problem . 6f . humanity individual
happiness, social -improvement, na
tional prosperity, and - the broad
world's disenthrallment and redemp

rocqgnizo in the education of tho peo
ple, the directest solution of tho prob
lem; of humanity? and that the
mtgfitiest minds and noblest hearts
are, to-day, in tho pains of labor, to
bring forth into the light, and give
substantial life, and vigor, and growth,
and permanence, to such ideas ot edu
cation as will soonest realize their con
ception of its nature and importance?
, Education, then, may be held as
gtod matter, still, for discussion, and
even your speaker may bo pardoned
for introducing a single phase of it, in
tho light of his own thought and ob
servation,:! mean. ,,tho Common
School, its nature, function, claims and
potential valuo. '' "
As a first step, we must arrive at a
prociscr notion than is commonly held,
as to what education is. You h'ave all
heard the etymology of tho term:
thero is no better ' definition of the
thing. To educate means, literally to
draw out, and' is directly opposed to
tho common notion of putting in. It
is to awaken and strengthen by rous
ing to activity, and promoting growth)
not distend and weaken by an over
feeding that clogs and burdens.'.
In the corn grain is a mysterious
life germ. Of its nature wo know lit
tle. Drop it in, tho soil where are
moisture., and , warmth, . and it .will
swell, burst, send down a rootlet for
meat and drink', shoot up a lealiot lor
air and light. Stir the earth about it
apd ; it will throw out root after root
for a firmer hold. Let the winds
shake it and it will add fibre to fibre
to resist them. Let the sun dart his
beams and tho even drop her dews up
on it and it will unfold blade after
blade to gather them to its bosom, and
finally put out its nodding ensign, bid
ding man to joy in its beanty and
come and take of its plenty. '
Divine wisdom drops a nut in the
forest. It, too, under the stimulus of
hoat and moisture, and in answer to
tho wondrous life-power in it, sends
down its root with mouths for food,
sends up its branch with lungs for air,
adds limb to limb and leaf to leaf to
catch the sunlight and rain drop, adds
growth to growth and root to root to
stay the tempest, until the little thing
you might fill up with your finger,
swells to tho mighty monarch of the
forest, lifts its head beneath the weight
ot centuries, and challangcs the king
of storms to battle.
Now it is not putting in the grain
seed or acorn that makes the harvest
or the. oak. But the conditions of
their growth aro met; tho proper stim
ulus is brought to bear, rousing into
action the latent life-forces and evolv
ing the good and beautiful -from one,
and majesty and power from tho othor.
It is the heat, and moisture, and air,
and light, and hoo, and plough, and
wind, and storm, that wakes tho life
principle and keeps it active, while
this puts forth its own organs of nour
ishment and these find their own sup
plies in the abundance God has stored
around them. . ' - '
There is in tho child a triple germ
elemont. Each is, of distinct nature,
yet they are some ,how. combined and
interwoven in mysterious union. Each
has its distinct life-forces and separate
sets of, conditions and stimulants ncod-
ful to. their enorgizing, normal action,
and highest effort.) But what is most
worthy, of note, and apropos to tho
matter in hand, these several Jifo-forces,
their energizing! conditions and laws
of action ; are adapted to ., harmonize
with each, other, and work together in
the evolyemcnt of a compound physi
cal, in tellectualj and moral being, the

Aye, it is to make a nation, a irord of such
men and women! .
From this standpoint wo can easily
see answers, to several very pertinent
questions. As to the importance of
education, it is alNimportant. As to
its claims, they out-weigh every thing.
As to value, it is invaluable. : As to
tho dignity of the work, it is divine ;
for tho truo educator is a direct asso
ciate with Deity, gathering tho germs
of humanity, that are scattered about
so lavihhly, and without Bueh' caro
must perish, and developing them,
growing them'that is tho better term,
growing them, in the world's garden,
into bright intelligences to people the
courts of Heaven. , ;"
Bat by-this time some of yon-arc
thinking,' is not this a ' little removed
from what is commonly held to bo ed
ucation?. Perhaps BOi but perhaps,
also, bur educational views arc com
monly too restricted. Education must
comprise the wholo man to make him
a perfect being; and of' course .his
destiny will aecept no less. Indeed,
no one part can reach a high develop
ment unless all'the rest approximate
the samo standard. - Now, tho physi
cal demand is moasurably met in the
manual duties of th.e home, sports of!
tho pluyground, and labor of the shop
and farm. The moral must devolve
largely on 1 home influences, youthful
associations, the Sabbath school and
Pulpit. Tho intellectual' largely left
to the professional teacher and the
school room. 1 But all are so closely
related, and in tho nature of things
interwoven and mutually dependent
that riot only is their separate treat
ment impracticable, but were it possi
ble, tho ' result : must bo disastrous to
true success. ': ,
Then, the State recognizing the true
nature and importance of education,
and acknowledging the obligation
foster t, legislates, in fact, in accord
ance . with the views just expressed.
Seeing that physical culture is pro
vided for, in the main, by. natural in
stincts and parental oversight, and
that moral culture is measurably safe
under the watchful care of individual
piety, and an enlightened, Christian
sentiment, she gives her attention
chiefly to mental trailing. So far,
however, from ignoring tho others, she
amply provides by liberal taxation for
the physical comfort, convenience and
health of her children, and by prudent
legislation aims to place such teachers
over' them as will secure the moral
improvement of her citizens. The
State, then, does conceive and act up
on tho true thoofy of education.
she docs not by. actual enactment pro
vide for all the details, it is because
trusting in the enlarged views, strong
personal intcrbst, patriotism an'd phi
lanthropy of her citizens, she expects
theny-in hoir parental, official ' and
private rciauons, to uo wise ana laiLn
ful in tho manifold duties, that, in the
very nature of things, must bo rather
theirs than tiers"' " -:: ' " '! '.

functions, claims and potential ;value
of tho Common School. . ,
