Essay read by I'.lss Mamie B. Taylor, during
the Graduating Exercises ofthe Cairo Ill-h School,
Friday evening, Jnne 13th, 1S7.I.
Now it came to pass in the reign of
Ulysses, in the eighth year ot his reign, in
the ninth month, that a goodly company of
youths and maidens were assembled to
gether as learners in the temple of knowl
edge. Now this temple was placed in the
valley of the River Mississippi, in a town
called Cairo. For it had come to pass
many years before, that the good people of
the town had erected this great building,
so that the children might here come to
gether, and gain wisdom from the learned
teachers, who might be there ; and more
over, had filled it with such things ns were
for the improvement of those learners who
might seek knowledge therein.
Now it was with good will and happy
hearts that a certain twelve of these chil
dren did commence their labors in this
temple. And the names ot those who were
set over them in their work were Germain
and Catherine of the house of Alvord, nnd
Mary Elizabeth of the house of Pattison.
And for four months, the children went up
daily to study with these teachers, till a
short season of rest was granted unto them,
that they might celebrate the birthday of
the great King. And it was a celebration
that the children hailed with a right good
cheer, for they began to grow tired ot the
tasks daily nppointed unto them. And
they went up to the Lord's house and sang
praises unto Him, and moreover, they were
made happy by giving and receiving gifts.
Then returned they unto tlio temple, ready
to go on with their work with renewed
vigor. And it came to pass at the end of
three months that these learners were found
m the temple, and sitting in the midst of
them were doctors and other wise men, who
were-both hearing them, nud asking them
questions. Now the parents ot the chil
dren were astonished nt their understand
ing and answers. And it was then that
these twelve did receivo much praise, for
they had been wisely instructed by their
teachers, ami had learned many things
concerning measurements and angles, and
the high mountains and pleasant valleys of
the earth; nud moreover, ofthe beabtiof
the fields and the creeping things of the
earth, and whatever liveth in the earth or
sea. And after two months the temple was
closed for a season, for thu tierce heat of tlio
Sun caused thu teachers and children to faint
aud long to rest from their labors. Now it
had como tojiss before thu temple was
closed, that fWfio of the twelve, on account
of sundry misfortunes, had fallen out by
the way, so that the other nine were left to
go on with their tasks alone. And the
children did leave their houses, and go into
strange lauds, to rest their weary minds.
Hut when after mauy weeks, the youth and
maidens and olllecrs ot the temple returned
again unto their houses, there was one of
the officers who camo not, for he had de
parted from among them, nnd had gono to
his Father. Aud this departed one was Al
fred of the house of Safford. Aud ull the
children mourned greatly tho loss of their
friend, for ho was used to como often
among them, and encourago them with
pleasant words. Now tho officers remain
ing obtained for them his likeness, nnd
hung it in tho temple, and tho children did
prize it greatly. Now it camo to pass when
tho children came again together, that
thoso who were set over them in their
work, were not those who wero there the
year before, but Frances of the house of
Etter. took tho plaeo of Catharine of the
house of Alvord. Aud the children went
on with their studies as they wero accus
tomed to do before, with their usual inter
missions, until the temple was again closed
for the space of four months. And again
the officers and children went out from
their houses into strange lands. But they
went from each other with much sadness,
for a terrible plague had como nmong
them, and they fled for their livcs and they
knew not how many would come together
again. And so they did tako different
roads nnd depart front the land of Eygpt.
And it came to pass that the sun waxed ex
ceeding hot, and in other pnrts of tho land
the plague prevailed mightily, so that no
one could stay it, but when word came
unto those who were in distant parts that
tho sickness prevailed not in Cairo, the
teachers and children assembled at the
temple to begin again their study. But
they were much disappointed, for it came
to pass that they had been gathered to
gether but a short time, when news came
unto them that the plague was still in their
midst. And the children wero much
afraid, and the people of tho town did
again scatter far and wide. But the officers
and teachers departed not, and some of tho
brave children might still be found in the
But when the news came unto them of
the plague visiting more houses, their
hearts sank; aud again they closed the tem
ple, and many went out from Egypt. But
it came to pass, after a short season, that
the weather did grow cool, and the Lord
sent frost among them; and the doctors
sent the news unto the people, saying that
all would we well it they returned unto
the land of Egypt. And the people were
much pleased and came back into the land.
Ami again the temple was opened, and the
children came again to their tasks with
much vigor; and the names of those who
were set over tho children in their work,
were, Sarah of the house of French,
and Carrie of the house Krinbill. And the
learners ofthe first rank did number nine,
but they were not all the same of former
years, for some had strayed into by paths,
and othe s came into their places. And
later one grew weary ofthe nppoiutedtasks,
and again there was a change among them,
and they did number eight, and this is
t'leir cumber unto this daw And it came
to pass that many wise men visited the
temple, and they came not only from the
laud of Egypt, but from strange and far
distant lands, and often did the children
receivo much good counsel and moreover
much praise. Aud it came to pass that one
of the wise men of the land of Egypt, did
depart from that laud, and did seek his
fortune in a strange land; but before he de
parted from that laud he went up into the
temple and gave tho children mauy good
counsels. And this was John of the house
ot Oberly, and he spake of many good
things unto them, nnd did tell them uot to
set their hopes too high, for they would bo
likely to be cast down. And his advice
unto the girls was t'aat they should learn to
make breud, roast beef and to sew on but
tons ; and unto tho boys he spake many
wise things, and told them that they would
not all bo doctors and other wise men, but
that they would be wood cutters aud black
smiths, and all manner of artificers. And
tho children kept all these sayings in their
hearts, and grew in wisdom daily. The
eight did learn moreover much of the wise
men who had lived before them. And
they learned of many things concerning
tho earth, how it was when first created and
how it was brought to its present state, and
of the creatures on the earth. And they
knew moreover, about the heavenly bodies,
how far distant they were from tho earth;
and they were much pleased with all they
learned. And it came to pass tbt tho day
was at hand when they should go cut from
the temple nnd tako their places among the
men nnd women of the world. And on the
appointed day all the elders and wise peo
ple of the city came up to sec and te hear
what the children had learned during their
sojourn in the temple, and the words that
they spake, and tho judgments that they
passed, will they not nil be written in the
future books of the Chronicles of the Class

From the Statu Register.
On the 12th a largo meeting of citizens
was held at Cnrbmidalc to take action as to
the Normal school located there. The re
sult of tho meeting is stated In an address
to the governor and legislature of tho state.
From this address it appears that the prop
osition to organize n Normal school at Car
bondale first took shape at a teacher's meet
ing held eleven years ago last March, and
that this meeting was successful in its pur
pose. Carbondalo donated $17,000 for tho
purposo ot establishing the school, and it
is admitted that the state spent un equal
amount for grounds and building. The
sMe has expended, it is said, about $23,
000 per year since 1S70 to support the
school. ' These figures, In our opinion,

If wo regard tho Ohio and Mississippi '
railroad as tho northern boundary of South
ern Illinois, there is about twenty-seven
counties in Southern Illinois. If we take .
the parallel of Mattoon, there' are about
forty counties in the district. Within the
latter limits there are over one million of
people in the populatiin, and but three col
legiate schools, and six or seven small pri
vate schools. In the former district there
is a population of nearly three quarters of
a million, and' but one collegiate school
and two or three small private schools.
The Illinois Central railroad that runs by
the door of the university has direct com
munication by means of railroad lines that
it operates, with Mobile and New Orleans
and with tho southern states cast and west
of its lines of travel, There
are no normnl schools in Kentucky,
Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisaca,
Texas and Arkansas. AU this vast region
could be drawn to tho scool with proper ef
fort. As an illustration of what can be
dono by energy and enterprise, we cite two
normal schools of other states. Tho South
western normal school in Lebanon, Ohio,
established and maintained byProt. Ifol
brook, by private enterprise, anil witLout
state nid, last j'ear catalogued over 1,600
pupils, and over 1,000 iti attendance at one
time. The alnaraiso normal school, in
Indiana, also established and maintained
without state aid, catalogued over 2,000 pu
pils, and had over 1,500 in attendance at
the same time. These schools have com
peting schools all around them, and have
neither buildings nor apparatus that bear "
any comparison with the Southern
Illinois University. What has been
accomplished in the Southern IllinoU
university, in return for the vast out
lay of money, surrounded a9 it has been
...I. i. , , i . .
wuu Bueiiiavorauie circumstances, ma vast
field in which It has no competition? At
no time has it catalogued over 408 bona
fide pupils during a year. At no time has
it hail over 283 bona fide students in at
tendance at the same time. At no time
ha3 it had 132 bona fide normal students.
It has not put 150 teachers in our schools.
It has never had fifty students teaching
any one time. In no year has it catalogued
over 200 students outside of Carbondalo
and its immediate vicinity. At no time
has there been over 1!50 students attending
at the same time outside of Carbondale or
its immediate vicinity. It has not been
increasing but decreasing in patronage
for nearly two years. Such havo been tho
results of all this vast outlay of
over $350,000 in the magnificent building
grounds and apparatus,, and the outlay of
$12.3,000 in supporting the institution.
Private schools, private normal schools, arc
springing up all over Southern Illinois, nnd
some have nearly as many pupils, and more
bona fide normal pupils than the State
University, maintained at such vast ex
pense. Pupils go from Southern Illinois to
other states in large numbers, and some
from Jackson county at Carbondale.
The memorial then goes on to contrast
the success of a normal establishment by
the private means of Clark Braden nnd
wife, at Carbondale, in 1806, with tho fail
ure of the state enterprise established in
They began with tlio bad reputation of
former failures to overcome. During tho
spring term of 1807 they enrolled over 103
students, During the spring term of 18G8
they eurolled over 220 students, nud over
130 were from abroad. They had over 130
in their classes. During the spring term
of 1809 they had 305 students. Over 240
wero from abroad. Forty-seven counties
were represented, nnd over twenty were
from the south. They had 103 in theru
normal classes, of whom 140 had already
been teachers and over ICO went out into
our public schools the next winter. Mr.
and Mrs. Braden sent out over 400 teachers
into our public schools in four years. They
had over 300 pupils teaching in the winter
of 1870 and 1871. Such was the result of
energy and ability, without one dollar of
aid, either direct or indirect.
Tho failure of the normal school is at
tributed by the memorialists to the follow
ing facts :
First year about nine out of thirteen per
sons employed at tho school wero from tho
Northern Methodist church. Second year
ten out of fifteen. Third nud fourth years
eleven out of sixteen. Fifth year ine out
of sixteen. Not only has this been thu
case, but in all contracts for improvement
nnd work, in regard to boarding, nnd even
trado, efforts have been persistently made
to confine everything to thedouiiuant pttrtv.
Three of tlio board of trustees are Metho
dists. It is quite possible that the C3tise as
signed for the failure of the Normal school
nifty be the correct one, but the public nr
moro interested in the undisputed fact that
the failure exists ami has existed from tho
beginniug. Tho fact that tho school has
never had 132 bona fide normal students,
that it has not put 150 teachers into tho
school of the state nnd that it has never
had over 150 students attending outstdo of
Carbondalo or its immediate vicinity, are
the facts which show to the public that tho
donations of tho state in nid of this purely
local enterprise, are wholly without any
adequate return to tho public. Like tho
Normal school nt Bloomington, tho South
ern Normal school was established, nnd U
supported wholly for the benefit of the
city and county where It is located.
