By Mary E. Todd, Come Let Us Live For Our .ft i v3 &0tk MY Children. The grades of life are steep and long But what of that If our hearts , be strong . We can climb thera We can climb them We can climb them If we will. Children are our equals; they criti cise, discuss.analyze us.a'nd we should feel thankful that, if the awe and fear of the past has disappeared, the new order of things has not diminish ed their deep love and affection. As co-educators, the teacher and parents should always keep in the closest possible touch. The great majority of parents, if they see that the teacher's interest in their chil dren is genuine, will do everything they can to further tha work of the school. Every teacher likes to think that the patrons of the school are satisfied with her work. It is the best assurance she can have that she will not have to hint for a new posi tion next year. Even a "pull with the board" on the part of a rival need not be eyed with consternation if the majority of the parents are known to approve of the present teacher. The surest way to secure this approval Is to show in every day's work that the pupil's advancement is the foremost interest. To secure the best results the home life and the school life must work together. The educational association which met at San Francisco the past year, appropriated more than 0O0 for ed ucatlonal investigation. The most signilicant action was connecting it self with the report of the Committee of Nine on the articulation of college and high school. It proposes that college admission shall be based upon the completion of a well planned high school course, and not upon subjects and amounts prescribed by the col leges. The wide discrepancy between preparation for life and preparation for college is to ba removed. A stud' ent in the high school should not be compelled to decide whether or not he will enter college until the latest . possible period. Vocational work should go hand in hand with cultural and not be merely added to the course. The colleges have been do ing the dictating fur more than a hundred years. It is time the elcmen tary and high schools be given the chance to say what knowledge is of most worth to them. . The. teacher: "What is a taxider mist?" Willie "A man that colhcts the taxes." "What does bbl. stand for?" asked the teacher "Base ball "shouted the boy at the foot o the .class. Vary the opening exercisos as sug gested ia the Course of Study. Fifteen minutes should be devoted to the opening exercises this Includes a short devotional exercise the Lord's Prayer or a few appreciate verses from the bible. Monday, current events; Tuesday, oral agriculture; Wednesday, music; Thursday draw ing; Friday, stories having an ethical value. Make each day's opening ex ercises of value to your school, lie member nothing is too good for the children. No, it is not necessary that a teacher be pretty. It is not at all essential that a "modiste preserve the aesthetic lines of her figure," But it is both necessary and essential for her to be a gentle loving woman who 1s an inspiration to all the children 1 placed in her care because the real beauty in their teacher the beauty of a noble character and an earnest desire to instill ttie same high ideals and strength of purpose into the lives of the little ones Intrusted to her. Beauty of soul far outshines beauty of face. It was so hot last week in the southwest that the schools had to be closed at Concordia, Kans., and at many other places. The same day there were heavy frosts In New Eng land and New York. Beginning at 7 o'clock In the morn ing 125 men completed a church in a day. The church Is near Peoria, 111.', and Is capable of seating several hundred persons. At 1) o'clock It was dedicated by a service and a Jubilee. Miss Grace Boddy writes us that she is in Chicago and enjoying the city the school and everything con nected with the Institution. . Many states are represented she writes us and all are one happy family. We are more than pleaded that Miss Boddy will be in Chicago this year. Our "little girl," who Is also a teach er, will attend school at the Chicago University this year and we know Miss Boddy will lend a hand and help her in many ways. We often wonder why the Lord is so good to us. SeasoiaWe ''Hardware i It is time right now to begin to think about l a good STOVE for. this Winter.

It was a "'Little Thing of three who told Mamma that she often saw Papa "tiss Nursey." . It was another "Little Thing" who asked Mama if Angels could , "fl.v," 'cause Papa told Miss Emily, she was an "Anpel," and forthwith the pretty Nurs ry Governess "flew." It is only a "Little Difference" in price, but a great difference in quality, and satisfaction . in buying "KELLY'S FAMOUS" Flour instead of more for your money kind. And another "Little Difference" of a few cents per pound in buying "BARRINGTON HALL BAKERIZED COFFEE." But the clear, delicious cup of coffee that "BARRINGTON HALL" makes, is a great difference from the muddy tasting coffee you get from cheap coffees. And only another "Little Difference" of a few cents per can, but the quality and pureness of the delicious fruits and vegetables, packed under the "GOLDEN ROBIN" Label is a great difference from the poor quality you get in cheap canned goods.
