THE TELL-TALE PARALLEL
WHICH WILL YOU CHOOSE AS SHERIFF ? i _ i HIGDON. Higdon has filled the office of patriot and soldier at his country’s call. He has never held a civil office. He is from the rank of business life. Higdon does not propose to “mix the military and hounds” as Stile3 seems to have done. He will have trained dogs. A good story is quickly told. Higdon’s cartoons tell the true story. Higdon does not deny that he wants the office with its good income. He needs the salary. They said Higdon wouldn’t fight. Yet when Higdon resent ed an insult from a former ! subordinate, thirty years of age, who was put under arrest at Miami for insubordination, the Stiles management black type it, with the facts left out. STILES. Stiles is from the profes sional office-holding office seeking class. He held office, according to the code (see Sec. 3372) 16 years. Stiles mixed on the union miners at Cordova, according to affidavits published; also his dates are mixed, as to the sale. The Stiles management car toon fell flat. The picture din’t fit the frame. Stiles, his kith and kin, drew near a quarter of a million dol lars from the Probate Judge’s office. Is Stiles any better citizen than Higdon, who resented an insult? Will Judge Stiles’ management say, in print, their candidate will not resent a ma licious, personal insult? Every man, woman and child admires manly courage. SESSION CLOSED WITH LUNCHEON Teachers Derive Great Benefi from the Institute LABOR MADE A PLEASURE Superintendent J- H. Phillips Delivers ■ Practical Address—Much Credit Is Accorded Prof. Brown for Success. The opening of the last day s exercises of the teachers' Institute which begun Thursday at the High school, was at 8:30 yesterday morning, when the regular work of Instruction was proceeded with until 11 o'clock. At that hour Superin tendent J. H. Phillips delivered a lecture on "Two E\>rms of Education.” At noon all repaired to the basement whore luncheon was served, and at 1:15 o’clock there was a general assembly in the auditorium for specific instruction along the lines of the new year's work, which begins tomorrow. The institute It Is said, has been of great benefit to the teachers of Birmingham, who have at tended regularly and have thus been fur nished the means of an agreeable transi tion from the pleasures of vacation to the labors of the Bchool room. To Pro fessor Brown, who directed the organiza tion of th,e classes of the Institute, is due much credit, it is said, for Its suc cess. The Jefferson County Educational asso ciation which met at the city hall yes terday morning adjourned shortly before 11 o'clock and In a body went to the school to hear Dr. Phillips’ lecture. Dr. Phillips said In part: "There are two universal laws, or -- F ORBES Remodeling Sale Attractive Prices All Goods Warranted Reasonable Terms Owing to the fact that our business has increased heyond our expectations we •have been compelled to enlarge our present quarters at 1909 Third avenue and have acquired the two upper floors of the building next to us, formerly occupied by T.

In the physical world we find the law of centrlfetal force that pulls from the cir cumference toward the center, and the law of centrifugal force that pulls from the center outwards. The two forces act ing In opposite directions, appear to be antagonistic, but the stability of suns and plants Is due to their operation. The one is as essential as the other. Upon the equilibrium, or balance of these forces rests the permanence of the universe. "In the biological field this great law is manifested by the two phases of per manence and change. There Is In plant and animal a conservative force that ad heres to the type—a something that re mains permanent and unchangeable. On the other hand we find a phase that tends to variation, and works for a constant change. The law of permanenoe and change Is demonstrated by all living things, It Is manifested In man and In civilization. Life Is a process, a per-, petual moving forward, yet forever re taining those elements of permanency that are the same today as they were In ages past. This change is going on In our own city, state and nation. Aid ideals give place to new; old creeds and verbal forma become too small for expanding souls; the forty shibboleths of last year will not serve for this year's campaign. In Moral World. "In the moral world this great law manifests itself under the true aspect of selfishness and altruism. The one is the law of personal interest and personal am bition, which tends towards the individ ual. Every person is the center of a great universe and his horizon depends upon his spiritual elevation. The other is the law of helpfulness, sympathy and love. Human selfishness and human altruism are two expressions of one great law of any moral nature, and the stability of the soul depends upon the proper bal ance, or equilibrium of these two seem ingly antagonistic forces. The applications of this law to the school and to the work of the teacher are numerous and suggestive. On the one hand we have a faction In the commun ity which demands tr.ar. bur courses of study sfyall be enriched by the intro duction of vocal music, drawing and man ual training and by giving the child those elements of culture which shall enrich and exalt the soul life. The cry goes up nil over the country against starving children upon the husks of thought and withholding the truth they crave in liter ature and in art. The other faction de plores the dissipation of the child’s en ergies upon so many dlvorse subjects. The cry goes out for the exclusion of these elements from the school and the restric tion of the work of teacher and child to the three ‘R’s’. The liberal and conserv ative ideals are found at war. "The true welfare of the school will be found today in the equilibrium of these two forces. "In our community life as reflected by the press and our social, literary and philanthropic organizations we find these two forces manifest. On one side we find the school, the church and , the lecture platform—our literary organizations and philanthropic institutions; on the other we find those agencies which divert and entertain, which exist to cater to the low er tastes and the lower ideals of our peo ple. I would not eliminate the baseball and the theatre, nor decry them as use less agencies in civilization, but how sadly do we need to restore the equili brium of these forces and to develope j among our people a sense of proportion with regard to these elements of our so cial and commercial life. Spiritual Attitude. I "These same forces were expressed In the mental and spiritual attitude of the teacher. On the one hand is that conser vative element which enables the teach er to enrich his mind and personality, and to gain adequate preparation for ids great work. The law of selfishness bids him get all the education possible for himself; to acquire all those elements of power which will give him strength in the battle of life. On the other hand the teacher must be imbued with the spirit of altruism, the true missionary spirit, that by self-sacrifice seeks to benefit others. “The teacher must love tne cnuu. lea, 1t is easy to love the good, the sweet and beautiful child, from the cultured home, but do you love the bad, the ugly, the neglected child of the slum, whose dis figured body represents t'he abuse and neglect of his fellow beings and whose distorted soul reflects his Inheritance of centuries of ignorance and vice? I read the other day in our local press of a lady who was represented as ridiculing the uncouth appearance and language of the trustees, teachers and children of a. school in which she had been employed to teach. We were told thaWthe young lady immediately resigned. Her resignation was doubtless a blessing to that commun ity, if that was her spirit. But, oh, what an opportunity she missed for true and permanent service to that community. The teacher himself is often his own enemy when disposed to fix the responsibility for his failure, whom other people, or upon untoward conditions. He might And that he himself is the true cause of failure and disappointment. “The hero of an old Spanish story Is said to hfcve been followed by a masked enemy who dogged his footsteps and caused him to fail In all Ids undertakings, bringing sadness and disappointment into his life. At last he turned to fight and slay his enemy, who suddenly threw off t'he mask and revealed to the terrified hero the image of himself, and pointing his finger at him the image cried out: 'Are you satisfied.?’ The true center of our civilization is the little child. This should be the center for the teacher and for all the energies and agencies of our civic and social life.” WILLIAM J. KOPP.

Howard Wa* Laid to Rest at Tuakegee. Tuskegoe, September 14.-(Speclal.)-The funeral services over the remains of Dr. C. M. Howard were held here yesterday afternoon at 3:3b from the Methodist church, conducted by the Rev. J. A. Peterson, the local pastor, and the Rev. T. Y. Abernethy of Selma. Dr. Howard, after being confined to Ills room only a few days, passed away Tues day evening at 3 o'clock and his death came as a shock to many of his friends who had not learned of his dangerous condition. The deceased was for many years a prominent physician and druggist and his death is a distinct loss to the town and to the church. He was universally loved and respected by all who knew him for his beautiful Christian character and high standing as a citizen and member of the board of stewards of the Method ist church. Dr. Howard loaves behind a widow and six children who have the profound sym | pathy of a large circle of friends who mourn with them their irreparable loss. Badly Scalded.
