GOING TO COLLEGE
If 1 had a dozen boys, I should not
send them all to college. I should caie
fully select from the number those 1
judged to be best fitted for higher edu
I cation; the rest would have to get along
I as best they could with the elementary
I knowledge acquired in the public
schools. I had to make my own way
thus insufficiently equipped; aud While
I am quite contented with my fate, I
cannot help wishing sometimes that in
my youth I had had a better opportu
nity for developing my natural ability.
1 should hesitate to advise a parent
to send even the brightest boy to col
lege if I was not quite sure that he
could withstand the temptations sure
to be offered to him there.
There is too much luxury about our
present day college life. Young men
who cannot afford to spend some thou
sands a year are becoming afraid to en
ter certain universities. This unfor
tunate state of things prevents many
parents from sending to college boys
who would be greatly benefitted by a
university course. lam happy to say,
however, that there are still universi
ties whose regulations and general
couduct are 'dead against' luxury of
any kind. At Cornell, for example, at
Aun Arbor, aud at the Iceland Stan- .
ford institutions iv California, the .
principles of frugality are taught and
practiced, aud our American fore .
fathers' custom of paying for their col
lege education out of their own pocket .
—that is, by hard labor iv the summer
—is still followed successfully by many
students.
Webster had some hard places to get ,
through iv his undergraduate days. .
One winter day he wrote to his father < .
from Dartmouth, begging him to send
ou four yards of stuff to be used in
making a warm suit. Old Webster
answered in this fashion: ,
"My Dear Boy—You know that when
1 sent you to college 1 had to borrow a
collar to be able to stand the expense, c
Siuce then 1 have bad to borrow four t
dollars from as many different parties ,
to pay the original debt. 1 enclose two
cents Take one ceut and buy a pipe, J
aud use the othtr for tobacco. Stnok- I
iug bleeds contentment; contentment \
breeds sloioiMn. And if you are a com
plete stoic you will not want clothes."
That sort of education, acquired by
one's own effort, at the expense of
horuy hands, and sometimes of bu- j
initiation, is tbe most lasting and the ,
most, desirable; accomplismeuts ob-t'
taiued without effort are little valued. ! '
The best gardner's come lrom Scotland .
wheie it is most difficult to wring from | l
the soil its products; the worst from I
Spain, wheie abundant crops may be P
raised without effort.—R. P. Flower, j
Education is more than a transform (
ing process, it is a creative process. By ,
it we become a new creature. Our ,
problem then would seem to be, in its |
broad aspects, a study of what our t
native common endowments are, and (
a study of what educational processes
at work upon this native material may
produce The emphasis of study should ,
rest upon the second of these proposi- '
tiuns. At tbe outset we shall believe
in tbe creative value of education. We
are warranted both by experience and
by study iv believing that education is
a far reaching aud momentous influ
ence. To be a man, mau must be ed
ucated. To be a teacher, man must 1
be made over again into a new agency. '
No fixed aud ligid laws can determine I
wttat this making over implies, since '
the teacher must from lime to time be
made into an agency adequate to the 6
needs of a changing and growing ■
Christian civilization. The accepted '
teacher of ytsterday is by no means '
the accepted teacher of tomorrow. We <
shall understand our problem best as '
we attach increased significance to tbe <
function of tbe teacher in civilization, 1
and as we interpret our standards of >
efficiency in the light of tomorrow. '
Teaching is always prophetic. It <
aims to describe the needs of the fu
ture, and to equip tne childhood of the I
present for the mature life that is to '
be. Teaching must always proceed on
the assumption that its test is to be
found not in the immediate product
which it sends out from tbe class room
but in tbe wider circles of influence
which it will exert on the days and tbe
activities that are to be. A wise teach
er concerns himself primarily with the
task of euuipping human souls for
life's service. It lays the emphasis of
its concern not upon the scraps of
knowledge which it gives from day to
day, but upon the fibre of character
which it builds for all the years to
come.—The Making of a Teacher.

Romantic Drama Founded on the Life of
tbe Beautiful Indian Princess
'Pocahontas' is tbe name of a new
romantic drama written by George
j Frederick Viett of Norfolk, which is
I shortly to be produced throughout tte
country, and it will settle down at
th s Jamestown Exposition, which is to
be held just outside of Norfolk, Vir
giuia, next year. At tbe Jamestown
Exposition tbe drama will be produced
in a most elaborate manner and as it
it based on a story of which the world
never tires it is bound to prove a last
ing attraction.
The scenery for the play will be spe
cially painted, the artist visiting James
town to secure sketches of tbeorigiual
scenes. Tbe costumes will be bis'ori
cally correct in every essential detail
and will be very gorgeous after tbe
manner of the period
The playwright has made a daring
innovation in the introduction of tbe
character of Shakespeare ou tbe stage.
Tbe Bard of Avon appears in the first
act where, in a fine oration be wist es
(■od speed to the colonists as tbey de
bark from Black wall, Englaud, to plant
the first permanent English speaking
colony on American soil.
Tbe play contains such episodes as
tbe quarrel between Ratcliffe, one of
tbe conspirators and Captain Jot n
Smith and the trial of Kendall for trea
son and his sentence of death.
Tbe saving ef the life of Captain John
Smith by Pocahontas in tbe third act
is a thrilling piece of realism and the
scene at tbe court of King James in
the next act when Pocahontas is pres
ented to his majesty is said to be of
surpassing beauty.
Another beautiful aud interesting
scene is the crowning of Powhatan,
the proud father of Pocahontas, who
declined to kueel, declaring that he
would "kneel to no man, not even to a
king."
The play ends with the arrival of the
cargo of maids who came from Eng
laud to be the wives of the colonists,
the price for each maid being set at
120 pounds of tobacco. The finale
takes the form of a magnificent callet,
its theme coveriug a span of three
centuries and typifying scenes of the
seventeenth and twentieth centuries.
Mr. Viett, the author, bas introduced
three distinct features into the play;
fie introduction of Shakespeare, the
first trial by jury on American soil and
the first marriage of white persons on
this continent, namely the ceremony
whereby John Laydon aud Aune Bur«
rus were made one in the rude but pic
turesque church at Jamestown Island.
It is supposed to introduce real In
dians into the play for the group paits ,
aud the war dances and for this pur
puse tne Secretary of the I-iterior will
be appealed to in order to secure tbe
red men from a government reserva
tion.
