pack Frrr. 800 TEACHERS AT TEND ANNUAL MEET ING IN HOUSTON. (Continued from page l. our endeavor In the school is to learn to do the thing that we shall have to keep on doing: as ltng ai we live." U is gratifying to me to note the proRresa that. In hem made In the stata tq reach this goal. It miiat be admitted that at no time before In the hlatory of public .education In Texas, haa there been auch concerted artlon atralnot the forcea of Ignor ranoe and auperatltutlon. It has coat " much In order to dlacloae our trim educational atatua. It had to he done If a remedy wa to be applied. It mukt have bean a atupendoua taak to brlna; the ynunar men of Texas, together and aubjnet them to the teat that would enable ua to find ouraelvea. Three can bo no doubt that the expenditure In time and money was exceedingly larare, but It la equally certain thnt large dlvl denda are accruelng from the under taking. The educatlonat awakening which haa followed thin dlacloaure In re ward our educational standing la tratlfylra; In the extreme. When It became known that the deatlny of onr country waa largely In tha hands of men who were unable to read In telligibly or to write their name It waa recalled at the aame Instance that patriot devotion to country and flair developa In proportion aa the principles of , government are known and understood, and that the Ideals of American citizenship muat be formed throuRh peralstent study In the pub lic . achoola, -under efficient guidance and Instructions. Investigation haa shown that the rural districts are the moat neglected among our people. The short term, one teacher schools, with 'a email house, poorly ventilated, poorly, lighted, with no equipment, a third class teacher, with no conception of the mental growth of children, to say nothing of the philosophy of teach ing, constitutes a liability, rather than the asset that It should be to the Mate: for In these both teacher and children, not Infrequently become,. umiciea lor me. - I am pleased to Inform you that a new day la dawning for these schools. Let us pauae long enough, here In association assembled to express our grateful appreciation to the depart ment of education for the creation of the office of State Supervisors of Negro schools, and for the appoint ment of the present encumbent, su pervisor Rogers, to administer the duties of Hie office. A wise and comprehensive study of the condltlona obtaining In these schools constitutes his first official act. The Informa tion gathered In this connection was not obtained in his office at Austin, nor Is it the result of reported Inves tigation of persons , authorized by him, but rather the result of his own observation and experience, growing out of sympathetic personal con tact with tcachera and pupils at work. Thus, he has been able to as certain the condltlona as they are, aa ' wall .as the view point of the teach ers in charge, looking forward to the permanent Improvement of the large number of schools under hia super vision. The problems of the rural schools are many and varied. The problem . of teacher shortage, and I mean ef ficient teacher shortage, not a more shortage of licensed teachers for the t. rural achoola, but a deficit of teach ware qualified for the work and conse (rrated to the duties of profession. 7".Thls condition is being met by the recommendation of Btate aid for a large number of teachera who desire to take aummer courses in our lead ing institutions In the South. These teachers are returning to the State with much enthusiasm for their work and a larger vision of community better in Its relations to life. The high cost of living which Is an outgrowth of the war and which has persistently held on through the period of reconstruction, Is out of all proportions with the salaries paid Colored teachera In this atate. Some relief haa come from the appropria tion of 14,000,000, by the legislature of the atate, upon the recommenda tion of Miss Blanlon, State Pupt, of Public Instruction. The Superin tendents Interest in all for the schools of Texas, has shown Itself In the administration of the school! laws of the State, as well as In the, amount of constructive legislation for 'the schools, resulting from her i recommenaanon. wotning can more ner by Prof. E.

In my opinion the moat forward step of any southern state In behalf or its colored schools was made by our own atate when the depart ment of education appointed a com mittee on standardization of Colored high schools, whose duty it was to ciassiry our schools and to stimulate the aspiration of the small towns and rural schools into qualifying for a standard school. The report of the committee is now before the department of education, and it remains to be seen what dis position will be made of it. If the recommendations are adopted by the State all schools meeting the require ments of this report will come under the immediate inspection of the state, and thus give tone to the character of work done, as well aa increase our. eirort to maintain our standard. This will also make easy the clasalfica-' tion of students who come from the rurals to higher schools in the city, and likewise, those who go from the high school to pursue college courses. We point with Just pride to our state school at Prairie View, and to the great work ityis doing In pre paring the young-people of our race for leadership. We rejoice In that the new needs of this Institution are be ing met by increased appropriations by the legislature, from time to time. A great step in the right di rection was taken when college were added to its normal curriculum, thus making it possible- for our young people to acquire a college ed ucation in a school supported by the state. X,et us not overlook' our Christian Institutions and the work they are doing for humanity. Nothing can be4 more essential to -our growm man and to the malntainence of a high moral atandard among our leaders than our Christian institutions. I be lieve with Dr. Moore, that religion Is the instinctive need by which a man is led to realize his better self, to unite with those who can serve him as guidea or companies in 'that dif ficult taak, and to endeavor to real ize together with them what the in ner witneas prescribes. Christian education makes easy the ailments of this coveted prize, a real ization, of our better aelves. I am happy to commend these schools to you, though separate and distinct from our public, school system, yet. essenUal to the highest success of every school system in the land. In conclusion fellow teachers, let us face the future bravely, with higher Ideals of scholarship, with a fine spirit of mutual helpfulness one to ward the other, with cheerful hearts and willing hands, with active brains, keenly alive to the best Interest of the children 'whom we teach, to the end that the states highest hopes and the people's greatest good may be fully realized.

"The State Department, absorbed no doubt by more important ques tions of exterior policies, or badly informed by its official agents, closes Its. ears to -our protestantatlona or simply gives rlgJit (approval) to the American officials." After his expression of willing ness by the Haitians to-co-operate loyally under the terms of the treaty if the American officials kept to their part of tho pact, the President concluded by saying: "The Haitian Government is under humiliating guardianship for lack of co-operation.

Hut Man May Degrade Labor. A Monument Mill Some Day be Erected to Kins Labor. (By N. W. Harllee.) Yesterday, boys and girls, I talked about the three little things that formed the trllplo link in the golden chalu' of character, but today Z wish to talk about two little words in con nection with the poor man and that of the rich man. I see when I men tion the rich man. that your eyes fairly dance in your beads, for every body thinks of the rich, but Abraham Lincoln took note, of the common people, and said that God must have loved them for He made so many of them. I am about to . talk about Capital and Asset ' And it you will give me your attention, I shall con nect these two little words, the one with tho poor man and the other with the rich man. Labor is the poor man's Capital and the rich man's Asset. It is honorable to labor. Some day, a monument will be erected to the dignity of labor. There is no dis grace to work with the bands. Pro vided we work with skill. Labor dis graces no man, the man may dis grace the dignity of King Labor. Heaven has decreeded that man shall eat bread by the sweat of his brow. Shall we wear a badge of labor 88 a disgrace, or shall we . wear it as a crown and symbol, as a jewel of honor? Labor rightly directed is tne poor man's capital. The beads of sweat that dilute his face are to be counted as the price of his capital in stock. No labor 1b meanial. The pick and the shovel, the plow and the hoe, the old wash tub end . the wash board are Just as honorable as the ink well and the quill in the jhand of the soverign lord; the dust cap worn, upon toe iienu ui iue cuaiu ber maid is Just as honorable as the crown worn on the royal head of the- potentate. If we honor the dignity of labor she will both reward and honor us.' It is not what we are doing to' make an honest living that disgraces us, but the manner in which we do the thing in hand. The porter in a store or the bootblack at his stand follolng their craft and vocation with skill and dextprity are to be counted as soverigns if they do their biddings well. The King will smile on them with the I same genial smile that he does for the emneror of the empress. If Mot ' " i w t - tj. mn iId a higher degree. The man in man, aesunea to lanor wnen ne counts the m. o h-nd f, Hv.,.in The man who looks upon any kind of labor as a disgrace, is a fit sub ject for the mad house. Broad cloth in the palace is no more honorable than the oVer-alls in the fields, in the Bhop, and upon thp house top. Some times I think we are too proud to do honor to whom honor is due. Hands with corns in them are more honorable than hands some times wrapped In kids. The boy covered with dust and grease in a work shop is more valuable than the boy who stands idle on the . street corner wishing for the thing In tho show windows. If we are fitted for a po sition, that position will seek ni, but, of course, we are to ring the bell of intelligence to show where we are.

Service is the biggest word in our language. Service is in demand everywhere; in shop, in the kitchen, in the church, in the home, nothing counts as efficient service, whatever you are doing.. Service Is the Poor Man's Capital, the Rich Man's Asset Service is the one golden rod that turns everything it touches into old whether in the hands of the poor man or the rich man.
