This getting up every night
with the baby, or some of the
older children, is all wrong.
Not that the children are to

We have often seen whole

These children seem well

HARRY V. WOOD,
Che Business of education.
An organism may be defined as a body
composed of members working together
for the accomplishment of a certain pur
pose or end. Prom the standpoint of
the Sociologist Society Is such an organ
ism, the members of which are men ;
and the purpose or end for which it was
organized is the development of sll the
elements of civilization, such as the en
oyment of life, liberty, and the pursuits
of hsppiness. Id ordtr tbst this pur
pose or end may be accomplished the
members must work together; and in
order that these members may work to
gether, they must be adjusted to the
functions of society. Prom this point
of view, as the Sociologist concerns, It
is the business of education to adjust
man to this social life. He is educated
when he is fitted to perform the func
tions of society efficiently.
I like to look at it from this staod
point. It givea to a teacher a definite
purpose in hls work. It gives to the
people interested in education an appre
ciation of the fact that it is something
tangible, practicable, and necessary.
It impresses me with a lamentable
condition that exists to a great extent
in our public schools to-day. . The text
book is used as an end in education and
Students are left with the
not s means,
impression that examples in Arithmetic
exist only iu Wentworth's or Robin
son's, or Ellwood & Colaw's Arithme
tics ; that Geography is found ouly in
tbe text book, and so on, making uo
connections between these text books
and the problems of life. A great defect
therefore in our instruction is abstrac
Tbia instruction if it would serve its
purpose ^uiust be. rationalized aud co
ordinated with life activities. Teachers
must be impressed with the fact that the
public school is tbe means through
which the Stale furnishes education to
the pupil aud that she conceives educa
tion to mean the adjustment of the pu
pil to the functions of society.
Again, this conception of educatiou
can not fail to quicken tbe interest of
tbe masses of tbe people. It becomes a
thing of great concern to citizens and of
greater concern to pareuts. It becomes
of paramount value to you that tbe
school perform its mission successfully.
It is a fact that tbe success or failure
of your school will depend to a certain
extent upon every element in tbe com
inanity, pbyscal or social, whether it be
teacher, parent, pnpil, blackboard, desk,
road to school, or what not, everything
more or less conduces to its efficiency.
A little reflection will show this to be
true. Parents and Trustees then must
be actively interested in this enterprise.
Yon must awake to the fact that what
you contribute to education ia uot a sac
rifice but e paying investment and yonr
dividends will be proportionate to your
There is something more for you to do
than atari your boy or girl to school.
Yon need to invest a sympathetic, con
stant and enduriug interest in your
child and fa your school. You invest
in your farm or store. You give it your
time sud energy by dsy. It is tbe top
ic of your thought aud conversation at
night. An investment in tbeeducatiou
al welfare of your boy or girl should ap
peal to you iu a higher and nobler sense.
Do yon manifest the same interest in
your boy or girl at school ? Does be
attend regularly ? Is he comfortably
situated? Do you stimulate him in bis
lessons at home ?, How many times
have you visited the school aud how
much do you talk it up in tbe comtuuu
Wbeu teachers and parents and all
co-operate in working ont thia concep
tion of education, then will tbe great

mission efficiently in developing our

A Memorial Tribute to M. S. Hum
L«»t Tuesday week s kindly gentle

"Wintergreen" Cemetery. ,
Among the mourning hearts gathered
around the grave of "Roe" Humphreys
were loyal friends who had full cause to

his state and our national govern
ment he was one of the best read tueu of
of this section. A* a host he showed
the hospitality, attentive kindness and
all the affability proverbial among the
landed gentry of the South.
As a friend and companion, whether
it were in the gatherings of the winter
fireside, in the summer rides through
shaded roads or sunny crops, or in his
favorite sports of the hunting field, he
was ever genial, unselfish and disting
uished among all for his courtesy.
The gentlest and most tender side of
his nature was best shown in the love
borne him by little children, both by
the numerous members of his relatives'
families uud the many little guests of
bis old plantation home. These would
gather about him aud remain with him
while he tirelessly entertained them

The teudeucy of medical science is to
ward pieventive measures,
thought of the world is being given to
tbe subject. It is easier and better to
prevent than to enre. It has been fully
demonstrated that pneumonia, one of
the most dangerous diseases that medi
cal men have to contend with, can be
prevented by the nse of Chamberlalu's
Cough Remedy. Pneumonia always re
sults from a cold or from an attack of
influenza (grip), and it baa been ob
served that this remedy counteracts any
teudency of these diseases toward pneu
monia. This has been fully proven iu
many thousands of cases in which this
remedy has been used during the great
prevalence of colds and grip in recent
years, and can be relied upon with im
plicit confidence. Pneumonia often re

The female worshippers are more de

success in business, and in gambling,
protection in journeys, freedom from ca

a dread of purgatory and their biggest

Social Life of the Army and Navy.
Tbe army and navy constitute a dis
tinctive element of American society,
and the wives sud daughters of officers,
whether from tbe homage due to arms
or on account of their personal attrac
tions, everywhere elicit attention and
admiration. Their lives, however, are
not altogether enviable; in tbe navy
separations are long and frequent, and
in both branches of the service there is
the ever present danger of death or in
jury to loved ones. Waldon Fawcett in
article in The Delineator for March
describes at length tbe social life of the
army and navy,' and the illustrations,
showing well-known officers and -their
wives, aod scenes aud events familiar to
the men of the army and navy are a de
lightful accompaniment to the paper.

Remedy for a number of years sud bave
