His subject was, 'Dedication of Life to God," and his words burned deep into the hearts of the large and magnificent audi ence. Miss Brown sang, "Under the Hills," effectively. Mr. Ferris Bradley of Natchez, was organist for the day. Mr. Bradley comes as one of the representatives or ganist of this country and his skill in handling this handsome new organ at the college was re markable.

President Henry Whitfield in troduced Mr. Thompson, the President of the Ohio State Uni versity, one of the greatest edu cators known to all readers and thinking people of America. His subject was "The Edu cated Woman ana Her Position to Modern Society." He claimed that women are as justly entitled to education as men. Fifty years ago this was unheard of. It was thought that women could not stand the strain, that she can has been proven. The objection made to co-education was that it made man effeminate. Women have come into a con sciousness of their own and are as justly entitled to education as men. While recognizing the many sided aims in education. Dr. Thompson emphasized the truth that the largest possible end is the evolution of the indi vidual; that the greatest event in the life of a person is the dis covery of himself. He stressed the fact that this self knowledge based on the eternal varieties of life is an essential condition for a teacher who is to be guide, philosopher and friend to stu dents.

Here lies the teacher's responsibility. Teachers must have the mother spirit and the Christ spirit. Fortunate the child who has a teacher who knows how to guide and bring him into the Heavenly vision The teacher guide must know t he way. The child who has a teacher who is uncertain about God Jis profoundly unfortunate. The school is a place to save the child so as to avoid the pitfalls of life, and to prevent his beiner thrown aside, in the rapidly changing social and industrial conditions of modern life- In this connection possibly the most magnificent statement that Dr. Thompson made was that his father was a shoemaker signifi cant of the American ideal that the child of parents of any walk of life may develop into a nation al citizen whose voice is suspect ed in the councils of the nation. Dr. Thompson mentioned this fact to show the value of educa tion for adjustability in changing conditions of industrial life. He stated that the demand for his father's trade ceased and his fa ther was unable to work effi ciently in any other line. The following A. B. and B.

One hundred children conven ed in several i corns on the first and second floors were hurriedly dismissed from their classes and sent home when the find was re ported to those in charge of the school.

ROMBACH BROS Leading Jewelers FLAM e D ESTRO Y OTTLEY POOL ROOM AT AN EARLY HOUR TUESDAY BUI FOB SOUND JUDGMENT OF FIRE MEN THE BLOCK MIGHT HAYE EEEN SWEPT AWAY. That Columbus has the best allround fire company inthestate was demonstrated on Tuesday morning when they responded to a call from Gth ward turned in by Policeman Cummings about 4 o'clock. The fire was discovered in the building occupied by the "Pastime Pool Room," owned by Mr. Weights Ottley. Immediately after the alarm was given the fire company was on the spot, and but for their presence of mind and sound judgment the entire block might have burned. As it was the pool room which i3 a charred mass, is the only building dam aged to any extent. J H. Ste vens & Son, grocerers, received slight damage. The building which was owned by Mr. P. W. Maer was partly insured. Mr. Ottley's equip ment was insured for $3,000. Mr. Ottley conducted an order ly pool room and bowling alley and one of his rules was to close the place of recreation at 12 o'clock at night. The fire must have originated sometime after the closing hour. Every dollar the city spends on the fire company is a fine in vestment, as there has never been a serious conflagration since the company has been so well or ganized and fitted up. Chief Carte has been with the company ever since the disas trous fire that swept away Mer chant's block, and his vigilance and efficiency are to be corn mended. Residence Durned.
