The East Side School.
The public schools of our city
opened September 3, for the year 18a9
1'jC'O. under the charge of Maggie 7.
Bucher. superintendent, and eleven
teachers. At a meeting of the board
if education held In November, It
was decided to add another teacher to
those already employed'and make the
number twelve. At present the
teachers and grades are: 'Miss Holt
man, first primary; Miss Stoneroad,
first primary; Miss Owen, second
grade; Mrs. Garllck, second; Miss
Roger, third; Mrs. Douglas, fourth;
Mrs. Bunker, fifth; Miss Hlmes, fifth;
Miss Davenport, sixth; Miss Beschle,
sixth and seventh; Miss Gillespie,
seventh, anl Miss Balcomb, eighth
grade.
The schools occupy three buildings
and are In a most excellent condition.
The total enrollment since Septem
ber Is about 600, including thirty
three high school pupils, nrofled In
Academic department of Normal
school. This enrollment la not so
large as last year aa the school age
is seven instead of six years, as it
was Jast term.
Thn.t trie people of our town appre
ciate their public schools, is shown
by tho fact that the last month of
school over E00 visitors were enrolled.
A most excellent report of the city
schools of East Las Vegas Is given in
the territorial report, published by
Manupl C. de Baca, superintendent of
public instruction for the territory.
At the territorial association held
in Santa Fe in December, East Las
Vegas sent seven delegates from her
public schools, the largest delegation
sent by any public school of the terri
tory, outside of Santa Fe, except Ra
ton," vrho hod nine. "
A decided change has been made in
classification, by the superintendent
this year.
To each' grade there are two classes.
and pupils are not kept back in their
studies a whole year, if absent on ac
count of nickness or for other rea
sons.
New Mexico Normal University.
In considering the resources of
New Mexico, her ability to establish
educational institutions and maintain
them properly should not be over
looked, as an evidence of the energy
and enterprise of her citizens. The
Normal University of Las VegaS was
opened Oct. 4, 1898 and during the
first year enrolled 200 students. Not
another normal school in America
can claim such a record. This is due
largely to its management.
Its board of regents is made up of
citizens whose sole aim has lieen the
upbuilding of an institution that any
state or community may be proud of.
The present board , of regents ts
composed of Messrs. Frank Springer,
Pres.; M. W. Browne, Sec'y. and
treasurer; Rev. Geo. Selby, Ohas. II
feld and A. B. Smith, members. This
board has had to do with the finishing
of the building, its equipment, the
employment of a faculty and the or
ganization of the school; a work de
manding a great amount of time and
thought. How well their work has
been done is attested by the magnifi
cent 'building now finished, .its sim
ple yet excellent equipment and the
nourishing condition of the school.
The invaluable services of previous
members of the board, Messrs. Ed
ward Henry, ' Chas. Rudulph and
Messrs. Burke, Labadle and Kil-
burg in wisely planning the affair
ot the school and laying a foundation
that should be sound for all time,
should not be forgotten.
A glance in the annual catalog ot
the institution shows a broad scope
of work, and a visit to the school
shows that the work announced is
being carried out in full. It is a
marvel that such a vast amount of
work has been accomplished at such
an insignificant, expense to the terri
tory. The following faculty is em
ployed:
Edgar L. Hewett, president, peda
gogy, educational psychology, socio
logy.
Richard H. Powell, librarian, litera
ture and history.
Wilmatte Porter, preceptress, bio
logical science and training work.
Inez D. Rice, physical science and
mathematics.
James Graham McNary, languages
and vocal music.
W. L. Edwards, principal commer
cial school.
Wellington B. Glvens, principal
training school.
Eleanore M. Hill, reading, physical
culture and training work.

Training.
In organizing the work of the New
Mexico Normal University, the board
of regents and president have been
guided by the various legislative acts
pertaining to the institution and by
the manifest needs of the people of
New Mexico.
The schools that make up the Nor
mal University are: (1) The Normal
ScHool, with its accessory schools
which make up the training depart
ment; viz., the model schools, com
prising the kindergarten, primary, el
ementary and secondary grades, and
the training school, comprising simi
lar grades. (2) The Graduate School.
(3) The Academic School. (4) The
Manual Training School. (5) The
Commercial School.
The institution is what its name im
plies. Courses of university grade
will be offered in no other subjects
than which properly come under the
head of higher pedagogic training,
and the only degrees conferred will
be pedagogic degrees.
For the training of teachers for the
publie schools, higher pedagogic edu
cation, general academic work, man
ual training and commercial work, the
institution offers excellent facilities.
In every department this school is
pledged to methods and standards of
work equal to those of the best insti
tutions east and west.
During the fall term just finished,
150 students were enrolled. Not less
-
than half the counties of New Mexi
co are represented in the enrollment,
and not less than a dozen states. The
health reccrd of the school has been
marvelous, enly one case of fatal ill
ness has occurred in the student body
since the organization of the school.
Aside from this the president's annual
report shows that there has not been
a cuce of sickness In the school since
its (iganlzalion that has kept a
student from attendance for as much
as a week at a time.
Doubtless much of the awakening
among the public schools of the terri
tsry during the past year has been
due to the coming of the Normal
school' with its advanced methods and
enthusiasm for better schools. Here
as in the states the Normal school
has become the people's school, for it
deals directly with the improvement
ot the primary, grammar and high
schools. Indirectly it touches the
nigher. educational institutions by set
ting a' standard which they must all
equal or surpass if tfiey are to hold
their patronage. Thus it may be
safely asserted that the establishment
of t ho Normal University at Las Ve
gas has been the most important
educational, movement in the history
of the territory.
The West Side Schools.
Wlfh the beginning of , the school
yearjn September, the directors of
districts Nos. 1 and 4, determined that
henceforth the schools on the west
side should be organized along sys
tematic lines, and that the instruc
tions given in the eight grades of the
common schools should be on a par
with that given in any of the public
sjh.it Is ia the teniicry. These di
rectors are Messrs. R. Vollmer, Cleo
fas Romero and Jose P. Mares in dis
trict No. 4; and Messrs. Sabino Lujan,
F. A. Gonzales and J. M. Maes in dis
trict No. 1. . Early in the summer,
they consulted with President Hewett
of the Normal University and after
careful consideration decided to place
these schools under the supervision of
the .Normal University as training
schools and appointed Mr. W. B. Glv
ens of the Normal Faculty as super
intendent. The wisdom of the direc
tors has been fully appreciated by the
liatrons of the schools and in conse
quence the enrollment is larger than
ever known before. 1
The teachers selected at the be
ginning of the year were: In district
o. 1, Grammar grades, Enrique Ar
mijo; intermediate grades, Jose I,
Garcia; primary grades, Teresa Lo
pez. In district No. 4: Grammar
grades, W. B. Glvens; intermediate
grades. J. F. Motsinger; primary
grades, Stella Bernard. These teach
ers have all been working in entire
harmony with the superintendent and
have greatly improved the efficiency
of their respective rooms. After a
month's woik, Mr. Motsinger reslghel
and his place was very acceptably
filled by Hilario Romero, who has
done good work.
Tho enrollment has now reached
about 475, and it is conservatively es
timated that this number will pass 00 )
within a short time. The number of
children enrolled in No 1 exceed
those of No. 4 by about 125. This
large enrollment in No. 1 necessitated
the opening of another room. So
about two weeks ago, a, kindergarten-
primary room was opened lor the
smallest children about 45 in num
ber and the supervision placed in the
hands of Miss Hill api Miss Dolrym
ple of the Normal faculty. The teach
iny is done by Misses Thomas, Stern,
Winters, Rothgeb and Mrs. Clark, all
of .the senior cIsbs. This sort of work
seems splendidly adapted to these lit
tle folks and they are deeply inter
ested and making excellent progress
The training class also has membe s
doing service in No. 4 as well. Misses
Duhrsen and Tuttle have been assist
ing with the seventh and eighth
grades for the past three months, and
thejr conscientious labors have ac
complished commendable results. Miss
Bernard's room became crowded
short while ago, and Miss McNallan
is now assisting there.
Great progress has been made
these schools in the past year and it
Is hoped that still greater things may
be accomplished in 1900. Th3 direct
ors did the best thing when they re-
olved to bring everything to a system
o that every child might maka
tapld progress as his abilities would

EDUCATIONAL ASSOCIATION.
An Aggressive Factor In The Devel
opment of New Mexico.
The Territorial Educational asso
ciation has taken its place as
one of the aggressive factors
lr. " he development of New
Me.xioo. The session JubI closed
at Santa Fe was frequently spoken of
s being fully on a par with similar
meetings in the states. Educators
that have recently come among us
poke of the papers end addresses as
being equal in power to any heard In
the states from which they came and
the citizens who attended the meet
ings expressed their gratification at
finding such an exceptionally able
force of educators in charge of the
jchool interests of the territory.
Among the noticeable features of
this FesBion were the unusual and
ntelllgent Interest taken by the pub
lic in the meetings, the social recog
tion accorded the teachers by the lead
ing citizens of Santa Fe, and the
scholarly character of the papers
oad. Hon. Geo. H. Wallace, Hon. T.
B. Catron. General Bartlett, General
Vance, ex-Gov. Prince, Judge McFie,
Judge Laughlin, Hon. M. C. de Baca
and the ladies of the Woman's Board i
f Trade were conspicuous for their
interest In the meetings and their at
tentions to the visiting teachers.
Among the papers of unusual inter
est may be mentioned that of Dr.
laltby, embodying the researches of
our Territorial University at Albu
querque with a view to determining
e effect of New Mexico "climate
upon lung capacity and lung strength.
Enough data were presented to estab
lish tacts of very great importance
to New Mexico as well as to the coun
try at large. Another paper of great
importance was that of Supt Glvens
of Las Vegas, setting forth the re-
iHs of a long series of investigations
by the New Mexico Normal Universi
ty, undertaken for the purpose of de
termining the effect of school life
upon the eyesight The paper was
supplemented by a vast amount of
valuable statistics and interesting
charts. The discussion of the ques-
on, "How to awaken greater interest
in preparation for college," by Prof.
axton. of the University of New
Mexico, President Sanders of the
Agricultural College and Prof. Powell
of the Normal University, was one of
the most profitable of the entire ses
sion, -while those of Supts. Baca and
Chapman on "Our Rural Schools,"
were full of practical . recommenda
tions for the good of the common
chool system.
Probably the most important move
ment of the association was the organ
ization of the Educational Council.
This body is made up of the most
eminent educators and citizens of the
erritory and has for its purpose the
consideration of all matters pertain
ing to educational affairs. The coun
cil will hold two meetings annually,
one in September and one in Decem
ber. The members of the council for
the coming year are Gov, Otero, Supt.
M. C. de Baca, President Herrick,
President Hewett, President Sanders,
President Light, Prof. Jones, of Socor
ro, Supt. Meadors of Roswell, Supt.
Chapman, of Raton, Supt Givens, of
a Vegas, Supt, Richards ot Gallup,
Supt. HIckey of Albuquerque, Supt.
Veits of the Indian School, Supt.
Wood, of Santa Fe, Prof. Hadley.of
as Cruces, Mrs. Catharine P. Wal-
ace ot Santa Fe, Miss Field of Albu
querque, Mrs. Jackson of Silver City,
Miss Desette, of the Indian schools,
Prof Coop, of Socorro.
The council organized with Prof.
Edgar L. Hewett of Las Vegas as
president and will hold its next meet-
inr at Albuquerque in September.
The Educational association will
meet next year at Santa Fe with Pres
ident Herrick as chairman.
The following timely resolutions
were passed as a sense of the conven
tion: Resolved, That this association ex
presses Its gratitude and pleasure in
reco;: ition of the evident progress
made by our territory from year to
year in the cause of education. This
is particularly manifested by a steady
addition to our membership of exper
ienced and scholarly men and women;
by the higher character of the. papers
reail before thfs association; by the
increased prosperity and attendance
of all our institutions of learning;
and by the larger annual enrollment
of members of this association.
Res-olved That this association
again affirms its desire that all teach
ers in New Mexico may use all reason
able efforts to inculcate in all stu
dents sentiments and habits of tem
perance. Something for the New Year

EPISCOPAL.
The New Year's sermon preached
yester-lay by the Rev. Geo. Selby, was
the outgrowth of the study of the
worris, "Take heed unto yourselves,
lest ye forget the covenant of the
Lord jour God," Deut 1:23.
''There are certain covenants in
force between God and man On our
side ideals to which we should be loy-
al. We are beset by influences which
inluce forgetfulness. Temptations
of pleasure, lose or profit in our lives. '
We often forget the hannfulnesa of
sin and the penalties of physical and I
moral errors. There is an education j
in losses, sorrows,' and difficulties.'
E-lucation and conscience should 1
ave us from the Influence of forget-
fulness. Tomorrow
w'll begin a new year and a new cen-1
tury. Both have been eventful cycles '
Washington died in 1799 What
changes The year has had its share
of wrongs and sufferings. France
has had Dreyfus, Austria has shed
Christian blood. Then, too, there
Inve been wrongs and sufferings
among us. Judge Lynch has held his
court, glocmng war clouds are hang
ing over the new year, Russia and
Japan are not in the most aimable
mood toward each other, and England
Is trying to crush the Boers. We
need some one to "ring in the Christ
(hat is to be " The world eema to
need readjustment The great na
tions are parcelling out territories.
The Anglo-Saxons are struggling for
the supremacy of their civilization.
What a century of change 1900 prom
ises to be! We have "the
Sermon on the Mount," to enable us
to do so. Many hopes and
wishes are unfulfilled. Some who
hoped that 1900 would see them mil
lionaires are disappointed. If we had
Aladdin's lamp we could not satisfy
their desires. We must toil on and
struggle. We must keep awake, on
the hand of sleep is always the finger
of Death. Hope enables ua to bear
our sorrows and disappointments. Not
the hope of the dreamer btTT the hope
of the thinker and the doer. Another
year is before us. Shall we see its
end? Hope is a tonic. Cling to hope
through storm and sunshine. "Galea
spes salutis." "Hope Is the helmet of
salvation."
BAPTIST,
llev. Sweet preached a sermon Sun
day from the words found in Psalms
90, verse 7. The subject of the dis
course was, "The Story of Our Years."
"The 90th Psalm is believed to be
the oldest poetic composition extant
It is generally attribute?- to Moses,
the lawgiver of the Old Te8'amen''
It speaks of God's eternity and man's
frailty. "Lord thou hast been our
dwelling place in all generations."
'We send our years as a tale that is
told."
1 What is the character of the
story of our years? It is a myster
ious story. The world is filled with
mysteries. But the greatest mystery
of all mysteries is life. Does life be
gin in time? What is Its , origin?
What sugtains it? A thousand and
one questions arise respecting life
which neither men nor angels can
answer. The story of our years is a
varied story. Sometimes it takes on
the features of a comedy; sometimes
it takes on the features of a tragedy.
It is like the rainbow. It is a thing
of sunshine and storm. One half of
life is spent in light, the other half is
spent in darkness. A life given up to
the service of pleasure and frivolity is
a ludicrous story is a comedy Life
is like day. Sometimes it is shorter
sometimes it is longer. Sometimes
it is fitted with sunshine, sometimes it
is fitted with storms. Sometimes the
morning Is fine, and the evening is
stormy, and vice versa. Life is like
the sea, sometimes the air is calm and
beautiful. The surface of the water
is smoth as glass and level as the
prairie. But then the tempest arises,
the wind blows, the billows rage, and
the foam tosses, the ships are driven
to disaster. Such is life. Life is a
brief story, and the older we grow the
more rapidly time seems to fly.
Life becomes more interesting
as it progresses. Life is interesting
in Infancy, it is more so in old age.
2. How is the story of our years
communicated? It is communicated
by ourselves, by our "neighbors, by
our influence on" future generations-
There need he no un
certainty In regard to the termination
of the story of our years. The dis
ciples of Christ walk by faith and not
by tight They endure as seeing Him
who is invisible. When the mists of
time and sense have cleared, thep we
will see clearly. . what
was the secret of Mr. Moody's suc
cess?" Was the subject of the pre
lade to the evening sermon. The
Rev. Sweet said he believed it to he
Mr. Moody's entire consecration to
the Master and his cause.
A song, entitled, "That's The Way,'
composed by the Rev. Sweet, was
3nng immediately before the evening
discourse. ;
METHODIST. '
Rev. Kellogg gave to his congrega
tion yesterday, the following New
Year's thoughts, the. subject of his dis
course being: "For What is Your
Life?" Jas. 4:14.
The answer to the text question
are as different as the environments
and dispositions of the men to whom
it Is put. The Bible calls life a
sleep," "flood," "tale told," "a flower'
and "a vapor." Every man will ans
wer the question as he himself is
circumstanced at the time of its ask
ing. Let us answer It In two ways

tury threshold on which we stand

Life is small and mean. First be

Valuable t things are rare. Costly
things come Jo small packages, in
the cities are multitudes masses of

many of us have found things as they

cnous drudgery. See how many are
In a treadmill.
On the other hand life Is great and
noble. First, in its moral signifi
cance. Life is what we make it, To
the trifler only is It a trifle. We are
linked by it to the great eternal
wheels of God's eternal life purposes.
"In the beginning God breathed into
man the breath of life" a part of God
pnrt of his life, part of his plans. Is
that small and mean? Small K may
be. like a small wheel in a great ma
chine, but a part of the machine just
the same, without which the machine
could not go Second, life is great
and noble, because God once passed
through it Things are valuable be
cause of their association, and we
need to see how God in Christ Jesus
once honored human life. Third, life
is great and noble, because it is the
beginlng of eternity It is clay in the
hand of the potter. We are our own
potter and while we may not stop the
eternal residency, we may" if we
rightfully value life have to do wltl
