Come, let u Hue for our children. forget each kindness that you du As noon as you have done It: . Forgot the praise that falls to you The moment you have won It; - ' ; Forgot the slander that you hear Before you can repeat It; . Forget each slight, each spite, each snear Wherever you may meet It. Don't be harsh with another unless you yourself have withstood the temptation that caused his or her downfall. P. H. Day of Ethelton called Mon day antf brought in the reports for school district number 19. Theteach- er, Mrs. P. IT. Day, Is trying to do the seven months' work laid out by the course of study in five months' time It keeps her working very hard. Mrs. Day earns every dollar of her salary and then some. Carrie Eidson, Winifred Evans and Arthur Eidson made us a pleasant visit Wednesday. Carrie has been sick the past week and was not able to go to school and study. Arthur and Winifred came by after school. H. V. Thompson of district No. 17 made us a short visit Wednesday. As yet he has no children old enough to attend school, but he Is Interested in the cause of education and is anxious that their district shall have a good teacher and pay her a good salary. Miss Amy Bowles is teaching in that district. That man or woman Is the best ed ucated who is the most useful. This year Kansas will pay the Fed eral Government for the army and navy about 8 million dollars enough to support our Agricultural College for 16 years', or all of our three state schools for hve years. Remember, just one state our state does that In Just one year. What would not that much money do In just one year for our children almost 95 for each man, woman and child in Kansas? Almost two thousand years ago the best of heaven was sent to earth to teach peace on earth and good will U men, Are we any nearer realizing that blest doctrine now than we were 1910 years ago? We are sending out the second hi "monthly examination questions this week. We are trying to average up the beginnings of the different schools In our county and send out the ques tions at the average closing of tlfe fourth month of school. A few ol the schools wlil receive the questions a little later than the end of the fourth month and a few a little earl let than that. We would be glad If our county schools could all begin on the same date, have the same num- her of days vacation at the holidays and all begin together again after the holidays, as schools in the towns do. Perhaps, with other good things, it is coming by and by. The following named teachers were present at the teachers' association ih Liberal Saturday, January 14th: . Amy Bowles, Mrs. DeCrow, Alice Smith, Mrs. It. J. Sllger, Grace G lea son, Wm. Rusco, Jessie Jordan, Mrs. Vlckers, Mrs. Anderson, Clara Hesse, Ernest Fulton, Estella Wells, F. O. Rindom, Emma Thompson and Jen. nie Berry. Every teacher present was prepared with the chapter or part assigned them and did their work in an able manner. We cer tainly felt proud or the group. We believe that each one of them receiv ed inspiration and new thoughts from the discussions. Every teacher in the county ought to own the Head ing Circle book, "The School And Its Life," and should study it and profit by its teachings. If a teacher wants to grow, lie or she must place them selves in educational channels. We would like to have every school board ask their teacher when she coniesTfor her next month's salary if she has copies of the reading cir cle books adopted by the slate or Kansas for its teachers, and if she is studying them. We can never know too much about teaching. Let us read the best, follow the best, and be ttie best teacher the district lias ever had. Miss Irene Taylor who teaches In district No. 12 visited in Lilieral the latter part or last week. We are sor ry that her time was so short that we didn't get to talk over her school work and tlnd out how she is pros pering. , E. R. Richardson lias been appoint ed treasurer of district No. 10 to fill out the unexpired term of P. M. Con dlt, who has moved Intodistrict No. 25 iiear Ilaync. Mrs. Wood, grandmother or the Lawder girls who are here attending high school, made us a pleasant call Friday. She is enjoying keeping house ror the girls while they study and work to climb the hiLLof knowledge. Little Charles Edward Woods made his farewell visit to this ofllce last Monday. He lias gone with his Aunt May to spend the winter in Mexlco Ciiy. . They will Join Charles Ed ward's grandmother, Mrs. James Woods, and Dr. Frances Woods. Shirkers are paid what they are worth. The next meeting or the teachers' association will be held February 14. We will take chapters I. to VIII. in ''The School And Its Lire" and chap ters I. to VII. in "Elements of Agri culture." The Agriculture chapters are, longer, hence we will take fewer chapters per month. Miss Florence McGregor reports a good association meeting in.Kismet. The quality was greatly in, prepon derance'to the quantity, but she an ticipates that the next meeting will have an increase of both. ' S. Congrove called Tuesday and got his little boy's share of the wal nuts. Boys, be sure to Write me as soon as you have planted the walnuts, tell ing me how deep, how far apart what kind of soil, furrows and seed spots, and anything else you may wish to tell me about the planting of the nuts. Some of the teachers wish to know if their pupils may take the next county examination and have their grades count toward a county dlplo. ma. Most assuredly. All such grades over 75 per cent in one brancb.or any number of. branches may be applied on a county diploma. Every child is good for something where th'e, teacher knows how to And out his talents and cultivate them in a truly, psychological man ner. The true principle of education is to lead the child to put Into habit the highest Ideals; (iod help us to smile my friend Uod help us to smile. Not the strained forced smile Not the sad, sad smile More pathetic than tears, ' Hut the smile that cheers. Though the heart lie sad Let the face be glad ' , , With a smile a happy smile A smile that cheers. Sorrows come to stretch our hearts and make more room, ror gladness by anj by. Fargo Items.
