LINCOLN INSTITUTE NOTES.
Dr. B. F. Allen addressed the Coun
ty Teachers' Association assembled
at Webster Grove, St. Louis county,
October 2G-28, on "The Spirit of the
Teacher." The address was received
with hearty applause. The presenta
tion and discussion on various educa
tional questions during the sessions
demons' rated the fact that the teach
ers of this county are alive and up to
date. Not less than seven of the re
cent graduates of Lincoln Institute
or attendants of the summer school,
are employed In this county, and are
doing well.
The patrons of Mr. W. II. Thomas'
class of 1905, principal of the school
in Carbondale, 111., are so well pleased
with the character of his work, that,
notwithstanding the presence of a
State Normal School in Illinois to
which their children are eligible, they
have decided to send them to Lincoln
Institute.
"The American Boy," the subject of
a well-known and widely advertised
lecture, presented by Mr. T. A. Garnet
to large audiences In leading churches
of the country, was given with stere
optlcan views in the Institute Audi
torium, Tuesday evening, October 24.
Full of timely suggestions, warnings
and advice for the young of both sex
es, It furnished an impressive lesson
to parents, teachers and students.
This was the initial lecture of the
season and President Allen promises
several more treats of high order
from both the literary and the musical
field.
A park for the pursuit of manly
sport Is being fitted up In the south
west sections of the campus under
the supervision of the Athleilc Asso
ciation. Professor West, business
manager. Several games on the grid'
Iron are soon to be played here.
The Institute choir, of which there
are two, and the orchestra, are all in
excellent shape, and in a spirit of
friendly and helpful rivalry, are fur
nishing music for devotlonals, Sunday
services, etc. Among those who exe
cute well on the violin are John Allen
of the College Department, recently
from Clark University; Misses Pansy
Phelps and Grozla Corneal of the
Freshman Normal.
Among the leading sopranos we note
Miss Portia Tlllmann, daughter of
Lieutenant L. A. Tillman of Kansas
City, and Miss Margaret Willis of
Denver, Colorado. The latter was
awarded a gold medal by the church
choir in Denver of which Bhe was a
mmeber.
Professor John J. Wheeler, the new
8iiperintendant of the Industrial De
partment, comes to Lincoln Institute
from Tuskegee, where, for the Inst
eight .years, he has been engaged In
Industrial and academic work. Pro
fessor Wheeler comes from a race of
educators, as will be seen from the
following facts: His father, Lloyd G.
W. Whooler, sr., Is business agent for
Tuskegee; Lloyd G. W. Wheeler, Jr.,
is assistant director of tho Academic
Department in the same Institutions;
Miss Mabel Wheeler, a sister, is In
structor In biology and literature in
Summer High School, St. Louis;
Hiram Wheeler, a brother, passed
through Jefferson City, a few days
since, en route to St. Joseph, where
he has been elected to teach agricul
ture In Bartlett High School of that
city; Robert F. Wheeler, anothor
brother, Is freight agent for a rail
road in the Hawaiian Islands. And
yet there are those who say that edu
cation does not elevate the Negro!

The Right Idea.
Miss Alice Roosevelt, who will send
a sewing machine to the empress of
Japan, has tho right Idea of spreading
civilization In the Orient. She evi
dently believes there Is more to be
gained in sewing machines than sow
ing missionaries.
Edible Seaweed.
It Is not a little astonishing to find
what a number of seaweeds are really
edible and nourishing, says The Lan
cet Perhaps the best known example
In this country la laver. which Is a
kind of stew made from a weed, an
alga. The laver made on the Devon
shire coaRt and to be found In some
London shops Is excellent.
Hold Farm Since 1300.
Recently the stock wns sold on a
farm In Dumfriesshire, Scotland,
which had been held by a family nam
ed Moffat since the year 13 J. when
King Robert Bruce made a grant of
the land to the MofTats. They held it
for 300 veara as owners, and tho rest
of the time as tenants of the Dukes of
Buccleuch.
Commit Sport by Proxy.
"Vandal," a well known writer on
ports, said In a recent Issue of the
London Express: "The sports of this
country are absolutely , rotten un
sound to the core. This nation Is no
longer a nation of sportsmen. It is
nation of odds-taking people who com
mit sport by proxy."
Self-Winding Alarm Clock.
Joseph Blythe, a resident of Ches
ter. Pa., has recently obtained a pat
ent on a self-winding alarm clock,
which Is said to have several very
novel features. The winding is done
by electricity and when once set will
ring every day at the same hour If de
sired. Kipling as Critic.
Here Is Rudyard Kipling's advice to
an author who submitted a story for
bis criticism: "Tear out second chap

name of hero and name of story; then

whole thing." Atlanta Constitution.
Black Rot in Cabbage.
Soaking the seed for fifteen min
utes In a 1:1000 corrosive sublimate
solution or In a 0.4 per cent formalin
solution Just before planting is sug
gested as a cheap and effective means
of destroying the germs upon the
seed.
Firemen Start a Blaze.

LINCOLN INSTITUTE NOTES.
The Clerk Whistled.
A Scotch minister Instructed his
clerk, who sat among the congrega
tion during service, to give a low
whistle If anything in her sermon ap
peared to be exaggerated. On hear
ing tho minister say: "In those days
there were snakes fifty feet long,"
the clerk gave a subdued whistle. "I
should have said thirty feet," added
tho minister. Another whistle from
the clerk. On sonsulting Thompson's
Concordance," said the minister, "I
see tho length Is twenty feet." Still
another whistle; whereupon the
preached leaned over and said In a
stage whisper: "Ye can whistle as
much as ye like MasPherson, but I'll
no take anither foot off for anybody!"
In Crimean Times.
In Crimean times (says the "Tat- J
tier") the Highland regiments were
so full of H Iberians that many stories
were current exploiting the fact. One
gallant Scottish colonel. It was said,
resolved to tuke tho sense of the reg
iment on tho vital question of adopt- j
ing the plaid ns an essential part of j
the uniform. When tho orderly camo '
to report the result, the colonel was ,
scandalized to find that only two of .
his men favored the suggestion, "And
who are there two gallant Highland
ers?" he asked. "Ooch!" replied tho
orderly, "suro It's Corporal O'Brien
an' Private O'Callaghnn, sorr!"
