My rule of life is not to have many
rules. It was Rousseau, you know, who
satd there was only one habit he would
have a ehild learn, and that was the
habit of never forming habits. 1

as you probably know.
My most earnest requirement of my
self is to use the English Uoguage in
such a way that I may never be misun
derstood—to choose words so inflexible
that my meaning may never be miscon
strued. I believe with Waldron .u Ms
“Mental Development in Regard to
Speech,” that lapses into the pronun

alarm clock, I have found, is getting
up promptly. Then you do not become
a slave to your alarm clock. Leisure
is absolutely necessary. You must have
time, not so much for introspection as
for broad contemplation and compari
son, so that you can see where you
stand. How much leisure? That would
depend. The Bible says one-seventh,
doesn’t it?
This is the philosophy of life of Mrs.
Ella Flagg Young, who at the age c-f
sixty-four years has been electea su
perintendent of the public schools of
Chicago at a salary of $10,000 a year,
which is perhaps the highest salary paid
to any woman in the United States.
Mrs. Flagg, after twenty-live years’
service in the Chicago schools, was elect
ed to the highest position in ihe schools
after a vigorous campaign which lasted
three weeks. In the beginning of this
campaign her only champion was the
only woman on the school board, Mrs
O’Keefe, and in the end she was unani
mously elected. In Mrs. Young’s elec
tion, many of the stronger sex see dan
ger of a surrender of the public schools
to the influence of the feminine sex,
which will mean a feminization of the
public schools, and a tendency to make
the men as weak as the women.
When asked for her views along these
lines Mrs. Young said:
“I don’t like that implied distinction
between the minds of 1 men and women.
I don’t like the emphasis vnd prefer
ence given to the administrative beforei
the educational aim. of schorl work.
These are false attitudes fir which
men and women both are to blame cud
these are faults to be corrected

1 teaching evenly divided among men end
' women. That thia is not so is due to
1 no preconcerted movement on the part
of woman to usurp the department of
education. It is the result of sociologi
| cal conditions in these chaotic times.
1 In my days at public school we had
! only men teachers. Surely chero is as
much to be feared in the exclusive in
: struction of men for a girl as in the
exolusive society of women for a boy.
“It is true that a girl is materially
benefited by the example of a woman
of high ideals. But in these days a .
girl brought up rightly for society—
society in the sociological sense —asso-
ciates with her father, brothers, cousins
and their men friends in goo.l propor-,
tion to the times she spends with mem I
bers of her 'own sex.
“ I do not believe that women are bet- 1
ter adapted to teaching than men be- ;
cause of their insight and sympathy
with the heart of a child. An instance ■
comes to me of a great, strong man of .
unusual intellectual attainments who I
have seen take his part in a conversa
tion upon the most abstruse subject,
while he tenderly undressed and put his
baby to bed, certainly not the t sual (us-1
tom, but detracting not the least from ,
his manliness.
“The rigid line drawn between man’s ,
sphere and woman’s sphere is a miscon- I
ception when you stop to think of it.
With all the woman’s boasting of sole 1
and solitary interest in her home, is
not the American man often admitted I
to be a slave husband? And do you ;
think he slaves unwillingly? No, in
“But I do not think the situation dis
couraging. The home is getting nearer
the school, but the school is getting ■
nearer the home. And there are many
old standards which need to be educated ,
out of the home by contact with the i
world, its events and progress as taken
account of in the schools.
“Formerly it was generally conceded
that there was joy enough In the home
for mother. Mother knew no greater
pleasure than to give up comforts and j
little luxuries and every advantage to i
her chamoring children. Occasionally
now a thoroughly modern and educated ;
woman will make the same observation.
But I notice it is usually made by some |
woman who has many other joys be-'
sides. Oftener than not. when this sub
ject comes up for discussion nowadays, 1
you will hear a dissenting voice from !
the mother.
“Contact with the world, the affec
tation of man’s work, his manners, his
speech, his clothes will never unmake
the woman. Some of the most self
sufficient old maids are guilty of these
assumptions. These evidences that men
are becoming more domestic and women
more worldly are merely an indication
of full and even development.”
Mrs. Young declares that she does not
I intend to be an office superintendent,
I but will get out among the schools and
I endeavor to spread her ideas personally
I among the 6000 or "000 teachers, the
majority of whom she knqws personally.
It is said that Mrs. Young favors
' the revival of the three R's in learning
and that while adverse the fads and
frills in education is not in favor of
the entire elimination of manual train
ing, though she admits that the prob
; terns which it presents are not more
j than half solved.
Mrs. Young is a hard workVr and
studies hard. Many years ago she form
. ed the habit of giving up three evenings
a week to study, and now while she
rises at 6 o ’clock she guards her recrea
tion hours jealously.

here. When Margaret Illington was
playing at this theater, the manager in

Frobman thought he saw a resemb

went to New York.
And she went, oh, yes. she went.
Armed with a letter from the friendly
manager to serve as a reminder to Mr.
Frohman, she packed her belongings
and beat it for New York.
Her first reading was bad. Mr. Fron
man said so.
“I’ve come all the way across the
continent to get your opinion, Mr. Froh
man,” she said quietly. She did not
shed a tear, shrug her shoulder, nor
stamp her foot. “Won’t you tell me
what’s the matter?”
Mr. Frohman set her to understudying
