Editor Sentinel :
Will you kindly allow me space in l
your paper to voice some sentiments i
which are near to my heart, and about I
a subject in which I believe the people I
of the parish are profoundly interest,
ed: 1
The election is over and our pre
sent competent Parish Surperinteu- I
dent of School has been elected to
another and more lucrative office.
The question arises, "Who is to be 1
has successor ?T' There are many t
competent geutlemenu in the parish t
who would, no doubt, gladly accept a
the position it tendered them by the
School Board. But before making a
selection, this body should ponder a
well and bear in mind that the well- I
fare of the rising generation depends, I
in a measure, upon their choice. Al- a
most anybody would be willing to i
write out checks for the teachers
salary once a month, and possibly
make a flying trip to visit the various d
schools once a year, and act as secre.
Lary to the School Board for $800 a a
year ; but if the best interests of the P
Schools are to be looked after, there
is something more requirrd. The
teachers need a leader, the school I
system of the parish needs a head
Teawhers, if they do best the work I
which it is intended they should do, e
must not only know something of the I
branches they are to teach, but they I
are supposed to know, and must
kuow, something about the methods
importing this knowledge to the
taught. Not only so, but they must
know something of the nature of the
being which they are to mould anal
make into a perfect, well informed,
well rounded man or woman. They
must know something of school man
agement, and many other things
which go to make up the qualifica
tions of a professional teacher. And,
to keep in touch with their profes
sion and.to keep step with it in i's
march of progress, they must read
educational books and periodicals and
attend teachers' institutes and con
ventious. Before they ate permitted i
to teach, they are examined to ascer
tain whgher they arequalified. This
is all right and proper.
But what about the man who is b
placed at the head of this teaching
force ? Should he not have some oth a
er qualifications besides the requisite {
scholarship ? Should he not know ,
something of methods of initruntionu ?
Should he not be one, who is not
only competent but willing to meet H
with and instruct his teachers in in. r
stitute once a mouth for their edfi
cation and the upbuilding of the
schools ? Certainly, he should not let
any other vacatinor interfere with bl i
duties as Superintendent. The sala- t
ry is sufficient to get a man who is
not only competent but who will find
the leisure to superintend the schools
of the parish,--superintend in its
broadest sense.
Before the new Superintendent is
elected we think it would throw much
,ight on this subject if the various
members of the School Board would
procure the published proceedings of
the Fourth Annual Convention of
the Louisiana State Publihe School
Teachers Assoeiati',n and read there
in the three excellenit papers which
were react before that body on "The
Parish Superintendent.
The educational lights all agree in
saying that the Superintendent should
be a practical educator. When we
want a juilge, we always select a
lawyer; when we are in need of some
one to fill the coroner's office, we
invite the ranks of the physicians;
when we want a general, we take one
whohas made a study of arms;
whai could be more natural and ap
proplriate than to seek a Superinten
dent in the ranks of the teachers ?
But above all, let us not make our
public school system the "fag end"
of politeics. We believe in the School
Board and are fully persuaded that
they will do what they believe will
best subserve the interests of our
public schools.

From Notes on "The Man With
the Hoe."
Br Tsa UTHrao, Bnow MAsRKuAM.
"Millet's "Man With the Hoe" is to
me the most solemnly impressive ofi
all modern paintings. As I look
upon the august ruin that it pictures,
I sometimes dare to think that its *
strength surpasses the power of
Michael Angelo. I
To me it comes wrapped around i
with more terror than the fearsome
shapes in DaLte. This Hoeman as
on earth; he walks among us. This
stolid and stunued peasant is the
type of industrinl oppression in all
lands and in all labors. He mightq
ie a man with a needle in a New
York sweat shop, a man with a pick
in a West Virginia coal mine, a man
with a hoe in a London alley, a man
with a spade on the banks of the
Zuyder Zee. The Hoeman is the
symbol of betrayed humanity, the
Toiler ground down through ages of
oppression; through ages of social
injustice. He is the man pushed
away from the land by those who
fail to use the laud, till at last he has
become a serf, with no mind in his
muscle and no heart in his handi.
work. He is the man pushed back
and shrunken up by the special pri
vileges conferred upon the Few.
The Hoeman is the effigy of mar,
a being with no outlet to his life, no
uplift to his soul-a being with no
time to rest, no time to think, no'
time to pray, no time for the mighty
hopes that make us men. I
His bat le has not been confined
to his own life; it extends backward
in grim and shadowy outline through
his long tr:ain of anceesiry.
He was seen of old among the
brickmakers of Egypt, among the
millions who lifted wearily the walls I
of Ilium, who carved the pillars of
Karonuk, and pavedl the Appian Way.
He is seen to-day among the stooped,'
silent workers who build London and
beautify her tombs and palaces.
These were some of the memories
and agitations that pressed unon my
soul as I stood in presence of this
dread thing-the Accuser of the
So I was forced to utter the awe
and grief -f my spirit for the ruined
m:mjesty of this son of God. So, the

Looking for a Bride.
By the disaplpearance of Miss Ida
Owens ftom her home, 7011 Western
avenue, Chicago, Wednesday, Mlay 2,
a romantic courtship, which was to
have culminated in marriage the next
day with James Menzes was cut
short. On his arrival in Chicago
Menzes, who is superintendent of the
Mms.isslppi Dredging company of
Thibodauz, La., found that the day
before that set for the wedtling his
flnance told her parents that she was
going to visit some friends and that
she would :cturn by night. When
night came, however, the girl was
not to be found, and Menzes set the
a police of South Englewool in search
of her, with a reward of $500 for the
return of his bride. Her parents are
nearly prostrated with fear for her
safety. Menzss, who is nearly twice
Ida's age, fell in love with her when
she was a child.--Chicago Record.
