School Director Richard A. Ward
severely criticised deficiencies In
spelling at the session of the city
teachers' institute. He made a plea
for the return to tho old spelling
bee custom. Mr. Ward brings for
ward a subject that has been
Drought vividly to the attention of

defects of the public school system
In a large part of the country.
FLINN'S MEN TO FIGHT A CONVENTION.
Fllnn men will fight every effort
to hold a Republican State conven
tion next year. Much significance Is
attached to the fact that by the hold
Ing of a Republican State convention
next year tho regulars will bo in
a position to oust Henry O. Wasson,
chairman, and the other Fllnn men
on the Republican State committee
with the election of stalwarts as
their successors. Tho Fllnn men
have been claiming that they will
retain their membership on the
State committee for two years, and
that under the recently enacted con
stitutional amendments, no State
candidates can be elected next year.
PROP. ODAY ON CHURCH AND
(Continued from Pago One.)
Ten killed and forty-one in
jured is the distressing toll of
football this season, with
Thanksgiving to be heard from.
If football were as popular as
baseball and as universally
played, a united demand would
go up for a reform of tho bru
tality out of the game. To a
certain extent the impulsive
statement made by Colonel
Roosevelt a few years ago, that
the young man who is not -willing
to risk a broken collarbone
or arm Is a mollycoddle. Is true;
but the parents of tho Dunmoro
youth who had his neck brok
en in a game a few weeks ago
and died, and the parents of
the other players who have been
killed in the midst of promising
careers cannot be convinced
that a game in which tho risk
is so great is necessary to
bring out tho rebust qualities
of young manhood. Wilkes-
While it does seem that "revised"
football Is not yet so well revised as
it ought to be, the casualty figures
for this year, wliich were not ma
terially altered by tho Thanksgiving
games, show eomo Improvement.
Ten killed and 41 Injured Is better
than 13 killed and ,509 Injured
which was the record for 1911; or 18
killed and-429 Injured, In 1910; or
33 killed and 24C injured, In 1909.

scripture Is read each morning and
nil unite In tho Lord's Prayer. I
mention this at this time because
some started tho report last year
that wo had discontinued reading
the Bible In school. Wo endeavor
to make every rule of management,
every regulation, every method of
proceduro lead tho pupil to right
action, and to give him the habit of
directing his own will along the
lines of duty and truth. We try
to inculcate tho school virtues of
Industry, honesty, obedience, thoro-
ness, truth, silence, order fairness,
punctuality, self-reliance, courtesy,
self-control, courage, the spirit of
service to others, and a love for the
beautiful, the true and tho good.
We aim to use such methods In
teaching each branch of study as
will call out in the child motives or
unselfishness, and, will not cause
him to base his effort on motives of
pride or rivalry, for wo realize that
success is not the highest moral
end. We often have a strong, up
hill pull, not that the children are
In general untruthful, but that too
many of them have learned the art
of deception long before they en
ter school. There are so many oth
er ways of acting an untruth,- than
In saying it, that children, almost
unconsciously, drop into deceitful
practices by Imitating their elders.
Here is an opportunity for all to
Under the direction of Dr. G.
Stanley Hall, about a thousand
adult persons were Interviewed as to
what qualities In their teachers
they still most prized or most dis
liked, and their answers summar
ized. While the answers refer to
teachers do you not think that they
and you would answer the same for
friends and associates? You must
remember that all are teachers to
a greater or less degree. "What
seems to be most appeclated In
teachers," says Dr. Hall Is the giv
ing of purpose, arousing of ideals,
kindling of ambition to be some
thing, to do something, and so giv
ing an object in life, encouragement
to overcome circumstances, and in
general, inspiring self confidence
and giving direction. Next comes
personal sympathy and kindness
next Is special help In lessons or
timely or kindly advice, while sta
bllity and poise of character purity
the absence of hypocrisy, independ
ence, and personal beauty, are prom
In striking contrast "the qualities
that inspiro most dislike are sar
casm, unjust punishment, suspicion,
severity, sternness, absence of laugh
ing and smiling, Indifference,
threats and broken vows, excessive
scolding and 'roasting', and fond
ness for inflicting blows." Surely
thoso answers give us much food
There are two phases of our lo
cal educational life upon which I
desire to placo special emphasis
The Free Library and tho gymnn-
sium. The former having to do
with the Intellectual and moral, the
latter with tho moral and physical.

Tho use of tho library Is freo to
all. It Is open every Tuesday and
Friday from 3 to fi and 7 to 9 and
contains about 2,500 volumes. It
has been open but two weeks tho
present year and yet thero aro
nearly 250 borrowers. A move
ment has been started to ralso, by
voluntary subscription, at least
?500 with which to purchase new
books. Young and old aro to bo
asked to contribute and any sum
will bo acceptable. It Is desirablo
that every man, woman and child In
Honesdale an dvlclnlty feel that
they aro part owners of tho library.
Go to tho library, become acquainted
with what is being done there, and
mako any suggestions that you
think will bo of boneilt. It Is be
ing operated by Inexporlenced per
sons and your assistance will bo ap
preciated. Somo ono may bo saying: " Why

But Httlo has been said In this
paper concerning the spiritual life
of tho child, not because wo do not
think it important, for it Is all Im

emphasize that phase of tno sub
ject by placing it last.
We have dwelt at some length up
on moral instruction and training,
we now desire to connect or rather
Intertwine the moral and the re
ligious. Clifford W. Barnes, tho execu
tive chairman of the International
Committee on Moral training has
written so ably on tho subject that
I desire to quote from him at some
"In teaching morals ono needs to
acknowledge the religious basis on
which morality rests." That coun
try sometimes called "Godless
Franco" urges its teachers to show
the relation between the moral and
the divine law, to inculcate in their
pupils a reverence for God and re
ligion. Our own country should
not be less open minded.
Formal worship once a day
should bo the universal practise in
tho schools of America."
"When tho juror, and the wit
ness, and the client before a notary
are no longer asked to swear their
affirmation in God's name; when our
judges, and our congressmen, and
other public servants, are permitted
to assume their solemn obligation
without taking oath of office on
the Word of God; when tho Presi
dent of these United States refuses
to Issue a Thanksgiving proclama
tion in acknowledgement of the
blessings of Almighty God; when
Congress, by deliberate choice, re
fuses to elect a chaplain, or be led
In prayer, and strikes from our coin
"In God wo trust,": and when the
laws of the land so change their
character as to give no recognition
to God's holy day and divine au
thority, then, and not till then, will
the public schools of America be
Justified in omitting all forms of
Tho atmosphere of the school may
be a medium for tho Introduction of
religion. This will require no
stating of creed, no expression of be
lief, nothing that might bo called
pletlstic or sanctimonious, but only
a pervasive spirit of light and Joy
and happiness, a sort of general un
derstanding that life Is a great and
beautiful gift of God, not to bo used
for sordid purposes, but rather as a
means of serving others to the limit
of ono's ability. This will bo re
ligion, pure and undeflled, admitting
of no sectarian controversy, but ex
erting a tremendously vitalizing In
llucnco on every effort at moral
training. The source of this religi
ous atmosphere Is not tho school in
which wo find it, but tho church and
tho neighborhood. A score or more
of antagonistic denominations will
help to make It, a thousand dif
ferent fnlths will enter into it, the
Bible story, the pastor's prayer, tho
mother's counsol, tho father's com
mand, these all will do their part
whllo underneath thero runs a
steady current of religious convic
tion, sweeping down from tho days
of our ancestors, to keep the
hearts of tho children strong and
true. Tho church and the homo
may well feel a new senso of re
sponsibility, as It thus becomes
clear that tho correlation of re
ligion and morality In our system of
education is so largely dependent
upon them. Religion in tho indi
vidual is good; but it becomes a
hotter and greater thing when, mul
tiplied a thousand fold, It gives tho
snlrlt of religion to tho town, the
I school, and tho nation."

Hazel Swingle Is now getting bet
tor. Tho following verses havo been
written by Mrs. Walter Swlnglo on
tho great Austin flood:
In tho State of Pennsylvania,
'Neath tho Potter county hills,
Stood tho llttlo town of Austin
With Its factories and Its mills.
On a sultry day in August,
Ninteen hundred and eleven,
Tho alarm of llro
To Its Inhabitants was given.
Tho people all with ono accord
Ran In tho streets to see
Whero and In what direction
The llro fiend must be.
"Tho Baylass dam has bursted,"
Wero the shrieks thnt filled tho air,
Whllo many a heart sent up to God,
A plea for mercy prayer.
Tho water madly rushing,
In Its onward course did flow,
Bringing death and destruction
To tho llttlo town below.
Llttlo did they think that day
When the Sabbath sun did rise
That ere the day was ended,
Death would still their cries.
Fearing neither God nor man
Upon tho Sabbath day,
Their machinery was kept a-running
Their men were under pay.
But the ono that holds tho oce"an
In tho hollow of his hand,
Can also hold tho Baylass
Or loose at his command.
Now, all you factory owners
And men of high estate,
When with business you are pressed
Remember Austin's fate.
Set asido the Sabbath,
Tho day that God has blessed,
Shut down your machinery,
And let your labors rest.
