RYE THANKS; FRIENDS - It appears from the returns in the senatorial electSon that Senator Shields has been nominated to sue ceed himself, and I most cheerfully submit to the verdict of the people as expressed : at the ballot box. wish to say, however, that I waged an open fight for the- coveted honor and presented my case as best I could in the brief campaign I made. "I accept , the result with no un kind feelings, animosity or ill will for th elector, who, following bis hon est conviction of duty as a citizen, supported Senator' Shields. I studi ously" avoided any interference wih the campaign of the other candidates even to the extent of submitting to unjust and unwarranted attacks and criticisms upon me and my adminis tration. I made no combination for or against any man or men running for other .offices, and can truthfully aay that no candidate lost or receiv ed, a vote by virtue of any trade or agreement with me,-and despite my failure to succeed, 1 am not ashamed or humiliated because of the result. "To the loyal friends and voters of the state who gave me their ungrudg ing support and influence, : without promise or "hope of reward, and to whose untiring efforts I owe the very complimentary vote' received, I nere and now desire to tender the pro- found thanks of a grateful heart I shall never forget , their splendid fight in my- interest and I trust that I may be permitted at some time to serve them as they have so generous ly and unselfishly served me. ; Their confidence in me as a public servant is more to be treasured and appreci ated than the title of any office, and to them I shall ever be graterul.";' TOM C.

EDUCATE THE BLIND State Superintesdent S. W. Sher- rill has sent out a letter to county superintendents in which be says: There are many unfortunate blind children in. the state of Tennesseo and those of defective vision who are not rcelving the benefits of an educa tion. This is deplorable but not un avoidable." The '.state has .made pro vision for these children and is main taining at public expense ' a splendid school -at Nashville for such child ren. The school admits those from six to twenty-one . years of age and furnishes board and tuition free. . Besides the v instruction given in the eight elementary grades and the four year high school grades, splen did advantages are offered in vocal and instrumental music, and through the industrial- department of the- school, children are enabled to , fit themselves for specific occupations. The boys are taught to cane chairs, to .:, make mattresses, mops and broom's, and receive special instruc tion In tuning and repairing. Courses are also offered in agriculture, poul try raising, etc. Girls rceeive in struction in bead work, raffia, weav ing, sewing, cooking and. other house work. .Typewriting is taught to both sexes. ' .- . v , . Among the totally blind graduate? of the school are, those who have suc ceeded as teachers, broom makers, tuners, salesmen, homemakers, etc. The purpose of the school is not on ly to impart information and aid in mental : growth through the usual cultural subjects, but It aims above all else to train each individual for some definite life work in which the pupil can be happy, useful, and inde pendent. No work ia so hard as idle-ness.-.t'-', ".', ;;' u; The education of the blind is no longer ah experiment. Through' the point system -of print they can ad vance almost as rapidly as the see ing. Though handicapped", when once shown the way, they become ambi tious and eager to prepare them selves for useful occupations. In the school at Nashville great ' care . and attention is iveh to, the health of the children.. They are under medi cal experts and receive daily study and attention. Many have had their vision preserved and restored. . Is it not the duty of all of us to see to ' it that no child,, in the etMe ot Tennessee who is debarred from the seeing school through lack of vision is deprived of the advantages of this special school because of ignorance or prejudice T I appeal to you to co operate with . the superintendent of the school and to send him ti ame ol any known to you who hOu.J be In the School but 'who have not taken any stepe to enroll there, v For tali "information and details. wrke I. 8.
