Down near Browns, Tuesday
morning, Dysart Brown, sitting on
a rick of fodder, guided his horses
along. James Wiggington, in a
buggy behind a horse he had bor
rowed from a neighbor, jogged
down the same road, headed to

Xow Brown and Wiggington had
had Eome differences. And Wig
gington had Insisted that Brown
should never speak to him again.
But Brown was near-sighted. So,
when Wiggington started to pass
him on the road he saw only the
horse Wiggington was driving, took
Wiggington for the neighbor to
whom the horse belonged, and
"Good morning, to you sir."
Mr. Wiggington, who is not near
sighted, resented the greeting in
strong, hot words.
'Why," said Brown somewhat
surprised, but recognizing the

or I would not hae spoken." And

PUPILS STUDY INDUSTRIES
3Iore Than the "Three B's" Taught
In Elementary School.
To eliminate the old idea of the
three R's" as much as possible
from the teaching In the Univer
sity Elementary School Is the plan
of J. L. Meriam, who has charge
of the school. To this end, start
ing ith the fourth grade, the pu
pils in the school have been Invest
igating the industries of Columbia.
Among those visited this year have
been a grist mill, a grocery store,
a meat market, a planing mill and
a cornfield. .
"Too much stress is laid on the
hard and fast rules of arithmetic
and grammar these days," said
Professor Meriam. "I believe that
the children will be much better
citizens for their knowledge of the
workings of the industries upon
which they are dependent
"At the age of the fourth-grade
pupil one finds the most inquisitive
child, and here is the time, we be
'Heve, to start teaching the practi
cal workings of business in Co
lumbia. Few persons ever use the
higher principles of mathematics
they learn in school."
At the grist mill the children
were told the uses of the different
kinds of machinery. They also
made experiments to estimate the
Iieight of the building, chutes and
machines. After the result of each
experiment was found, the miller
gave the reasons for the arrange
ment of the machinery. A visit
was made also to a cornfield In the
neighborhood where the relation
of the soil and grains to the fin
ished product was explained.
"I am especially pleased with the
Interest the merchants of Columbia
have shown In allowing the pupils
to make a Uslt to their place of
business," said Professor Meriam.
"It shows they realize the alue of
teaching the young people to take
an interest in the city. Some of
them hae willingly granted us
from two to three hours of their
