both through appeals to, local pride
and through light thrown on specific
defects. The state board of health of
Michigan during the summer ran a
health train through the state, touch

wau manifested in the lectures and the
exhibits connected with the train. In
the report of the inspectors, th sani

arc Set forth In plain 'terms. Tor In
stance, of one town It Is said: "Health
sentiment is. at a low ebb here. , The
health officer was attending a picnic,
but th files were attending to busi
ness in the unscreened, filthy privies
and garbage heaps around the town."
This particular town is not likely to
be proud of this report, and the health
officer will undoubtedly begin to clean
things up. In contrast to this It was
said about another town: "This Is the
most all-round sanitary little village
visited by the special. . A . good pro
gressive president and health officer,
backed by a splendid sanitary senti

that the health department' was active

TEACHERS TO STUDY ABROAD.
"Cities should grant leave with half
pay to modern language teachers who
will go the expense of study abroad,"
declares William B. Snow of the Bos
ton English high school In a -bulletin
Just issued by the United States bu
reau of education. On the whole Dr.
Snow thinks modern language Instruc
tion In our best schools is as good as
that abroad, in proportion to the time i

found good, endeavor to see wherein!
their merit lies, and decide what meth-'

od seems especially well suited to van-
ous conditions and to different types
of classes or teachers."
On th question of whether conver
sation or translation should be em
phasised in teaching modern languages,
Mr. ' Snow insists that both demand
teaching of the very highest type to be
effective; that both are valuable.
"Translation has its warm friends and
its bitter enemies. Reformers have
worked as hard to drive t out of the
class as they have to drag conversa
tion in. The difficulty is that the
meat In the sand- ich has a tend
ency to drop out and leave only the
bread: translation comes to be a me
chanical substitution of the words of
one language for the words of another,
with little or no thought in the process,
while translation ought to mean the
study of a passage un 1 Its thought is
clearly apprehended, and then an ef
