Vol. XXIV. NOTICE TO TEACHERS AND SUPERINTENDENTS FROM DEPARTMENT 0 F PUBLIC INSTRUCTION DENVER, COLO. Denver, Colo., June 19, 1911 To the County Superintendents: I desire to direct your atten tion to the new laws becoming effective Aug. 4th next, unless referred to the people of the State under the referendum, and ‘now known as House Bill No. 85, both of which make f. change in the duties of your office as well as adding new duties, all of which, in my judgement, need immediate attention soas-togive general notice and the widest opportunity to each actual and prospective teacher desirous of attending a normal training school during the present vaca tion for the full period of six weeks provided for under the latter bill; otherwise, some of the most promising young teach ers of Colorado will be prevented from obtaining oven a thirdgrade certificate at the coming August December and March exami nations. I am in h a: y sympathy with the raising of the standard of teachers and educators in Colo., but did not approve of either bill in the present' form, beleiving that more consideration should have been shown the great num ber of excellent teachers in this State who have successfuly taught here for many years without having had the opportu nity in earlier life of attending a high school with a graded four year course, but who, in my opinion, have obtained equally as good a training for this line of work by being specially quali fied by nature for teachers, and jjy being endowed with sufficient energy to take advantage of all the opportunities coming within their reach, and I also feared that raising the standard of re quiremente so radically at this tune without reasonable notice to those affected, would result jn the loss of so many of our competent teachers, whose cer tificates have now or are about to expire, that the number of teachers obtainable for the com ing year might be inadequate to meet the demand, it being deem pd probable that the strict en forcement of the spirit of the law would also prevent the re newal of first grade cirtificates issued under the old law. It seemed to me at tha time this bill was pending, and sc seems at this time that it would have been only common justice to that large army of teachers in this State who from either lack of opportunity or means have been deprived of the required 4 years’ high school training, to have had a clause inserted in this law exempting from this re quirement such of their number as have successfuly taught in this State for a period of say 3 years, and especially so as simi lar exemptions have invariably been made in this and neighbor ing States at the time of enacting IL W.

TT .—ANOTHER $lOO,OOO RAIN VISITED BAGR GOIINTY -LAST NIGHT— new Jaws for the regulation of I the practice of medicine, den- j ( tistry, law and kindred profess- ! ions. But those leading educat • ors of the State who were be- i hind the bill refused to consider | any amendments, and, having. sufficient influence with the members of the legislature, caused its passage in its present form; and this department is now confronted with the duty of enforcing its provisions re gardless of any personal feelings in the matter. (Continued next week.) HONEST MEDICINE VERSUS FAKES. President Taft’o recent message sug gesting an amendment to tha'Pure Food and Drug Jaw in Us relation to“prepar ed Medicines does not refer to such standard medicines as Foley’s Honey and Tar Compound and Foley Kidney Pills both of which are true medicines i carefully compounded of ingredients j whose medicinal qualities are recognized hy the medical profession itself as' the known remedial agent for the diseases they are intended to counteract. For over three decades Foley’s Honey and Tar Compound has been a standard remedy for coughs colds and effeetions of the throat, chest and lungs for chil- | dren and for grown persons, and it re- | tains today its pre-eminence above all otherjpreparatibns of its kind. Foley’s Kidney Pills are equally effective and meritorious. At Postoffice Drug Store. 1 Boston Pickings. Sunday school was well attended last Sunday, with some new ones in attend ance. The W. C. T.

Mrs. Adda Konkel writes that she will start for home next week, and that she doesn’t like California a little bit. We have hnd two sprinkles here dur ing the week, which gives rise to the query, if wi had more Baptists here would we have more rain? Several Bostonions didn’t get quite through planting when the dry weather intervened, and the outlook is now that they wont get to finish up till next year; but crops that are clean never looked better.
