THOU SHALT NOT—
Since the days when Adam and Eve were forbidden to eat of
the fruit of the tree of knowledge and disobeyed there has been
exhibited from time to time the same innate repugnance to obey
any law or behest which reads "Thou Shalt Not—.
People are grown-up children who are more easily led than
shriven and from the time of Draco when the laws were said to have
been written in blood, there has been constant rebellion against
rales intended to deprive the individual of what he may consider
personal privileges. In the world's history one may read of the
carnivals of license following close upon the period where blue laws
have held sway, only to be followed again by another reversion to
religious and moral standards.
During the present generation there is a positive falling away
from the old standards of home life and church allegiance, prob
ably induced by the rigid Puritan training of the young a genera
tion ago, who now as mature men and women rule the nation, and
who possibly unconsciously rebelled against the Spartan training
which made Sunday a day to be dreaded and religion a fearful
thing.

Possibly this reaction may be terminated in the next few
years but it may go on until it has had time to disgust old and
young with its corruption.
A leader is better than a driver. A smile will go farther than
a club and interest that shows some self-sacrifice will avail more
than a decalog of thou shalt not's promylgated in a way showing
the expectation of disobedience and a savage joy in the thought of
the punishment to be administered.

STATE SUPERINTENDENT.
bear upon Prof. A. O. Gullidge of
Terry, to allow his name to be used as
a candidate for the office of sUte su
superintendent of public instruction,
and while he has not yet determined
whether he will allow the use of his
name, it is likely that he will give his
sanction within a short time.
Few men in the state are better
known than Professor Gullidge, both
in educational and legislative circles,
and his fitness for the position must
appeal to every one who seeks service
and competence in this department of
state government that has so much to
jdo with the ones who are to govern
its destinies within the coming years.
As an educator he is not surpassed by
any in Montana, and he would take
with him into the office a thorough
understanding of the needs of the
Strong pressure is being brought to
schools of the state.
We have no criticism of Miss Trum- 1
per, present superintendent, though in
many of her actions we have taken j'
occasion to differ. * She has mixed
politics too much with the administra- H
tion of her office, she has absolutely 1 g
no regard for the taxes imposed upon E
the people so long as it was given to s
her department to spend. Under this E
regime the school taxes imposed are E
the highest ever known and we have j E
serious doubts if the efficiency has E
iOCM*eed in the least. >
We have known intimately Profes- 1 E
sor Gullidge for 15 years as principal £
of the Terry high school, and have S
observed his earnest endeavors in be- £
half of the grade schools through the
state, feel that he is eminently quali
fied for the position of state superin
tendent, and in electing him to the po
sition a great service will be done the
children. Many of the splendid school
laws now on the statute books of Mon
tana are the result of his efforts as a
of the Montana legislature,
and we are sure that no more capable
man will, offer himself for office this
year.—Terry Tribune,
