Craig, Ripley, Tenn., who is making an active campaign for Congress against Hon. Finis J. Garrett in the Ninth District, takes xception to the story published in emphasized thoroughness in our schools instead of such radical changes in the curricula and in the organization of the class-room. -The writer wishes to make a plea for the classical education, and Lat in, of course, figures largely in this, at least during the present age. Let it be remembered that -it was this type that produced such lawyers as Moses, such religious leaders as Paul, such orators as Cicero, sucB philosophers as Kant, such scientists as Newton, such soldiers as Robert E. Lee, and such statesmen as Wood row Wilson. This type, too, produced such poets as Milton and Tennyson, and such lecturers as Ruskin and Emerson. Latin is not a dead lan-' guage, although it is not at present used as a language by any people in its completeness. There are at least twenty words in this article, thus j far, that show Latin origin. And be sides, the principles, the vigor, and the exactness that is contributed to the English from the Latin is surely evident. Take away the influence of Greek and Latin from our English and we should be but little better off in expressing our thoughts than were the Indians when the white men first ' came to America. J i The writer has the most profound sympathy for one who has studied ! Latin for six years and yet finds no I use for it in the practice of law. The 1 physician might just as consistently I contend that he found no use for chemistry in the practice of medi cine. The agriculturist might just ' as reasonably argue that he found no use for biology in the science of ! farming. It goes without saying that ; the lawyer would find no direct ap plication of the rules governing the There are certain dreams I cherish Which I'd like to see come true, There are things I would accomplish ere my time of life 13 through, But the task my heart is set on is to guide a little lad And to make myself successful as that little fellow's dad. 1 I may never come to glory, I may never gather gold, Men may list me with the failures when my business life is told, if he who follows after shall be' manly, Til bo glad. I'll know I've been successful as thpt little fellow's dad. the one Job that I dream of, it's the task I think of most, failed that growing youngster, I'd have nothing else to boast; though wealth and fame I'd gathered, all my future would be sad, If I'd failed to be successful as that little fellow's dad. Edgar A. Guest HHHH EDGAR A. GUEST. But For It's If I For the Commercial Appeal of Monday, ' dative case when in the courtroom May 22, and copied in this paper last Dt it does stand to reason that one "week. This story was in effect that j who uses language as does the law yer snoum ana must know ana use any of the principles and fine shades many of the principles and fine shades of meaning to be derived from the study of Latin and Greek. Mr. Morris contends for a longer Mr. Garrett's colleagues were not . able to, understand opposition to him. Mr. Craig says: To the Commercial Appeal: "The article in Monday's Commer cial Appeal by R. M. Gates, news paper correspondent, questioning the extension of time for the. study of propriety of my making the race 1 arithmetic. He knows that he touches rfor Congress against Mr. Garrett a sacred spot in the school-room af reaches a new high level in political fections of many of the older voters dictation. If it states the facts fair- when he thus speaks of the three ly, Congress has resolved itself into a political arena wherein the game lor political advantages is being staged while the pressing needs of their constituents are flagrantly neg lected, and by the aid of the press R's, for to many of them those were their only fields of training. The writer would not belittle their im portance at any time, either past, present or future. It does appear, however, that if these were taught . it nas arrogated to itself the right to efficiently and learned thoroughly, and is challenging any man who runs their study should not occupy a larg- f or office without the approval of er space in the public school program Congress. No such political func-jthan at present. If a pupil cannot tions were delegated to Congress by master the principles of arithmetic the constitution. Here is a very, after having studied them through forceful illustration of the danger of . eight grades, either he or the teach- allowing men sto remain in office so 'long that they are able to subvert the agencies of government in order to perpetuate themselves in power. Neither Congress nor the Democratic party will be adversely - affected by my election or Mr. Garrett's defeat. Let Congress attend to its constitu tional duties, and let the people elect their congressmen without sugges tion or coercion from these self-con-. stituted political advisers, living out side of the congressional district."

PARDUE, BLACKSMITH Telephone 43. Union City, Tenn. er must be faulty and not the public school system. The matter of. calling for fewer teachers for our children than at present is absurd and criminal. Any educational expert will say that there are as many types of children as there are children, and that the only way to care for the individual differences is to employ more teach ers so that each child may receive more individual attention. Educat ing a child is not like feeding a bunch of cattle just pour it out and expect them all to grow and develop alike. In fact it has been conclusive ly proven, beyond any doubt what soever, that the teacher with the fewest pupils is sure to turn out more and a better quality of students than otherwise, other things bein equal. Certainly it means more mon ey for our schools, but it does not mean shorter hours for teachers, nec essarily. It means better thances for the defectives. It means a better Concentration for the teacher in be- half of the pupils. It means more and better educated citizens of the future. Now the writer does not contend that all is well in the public school system of the State of Tennessee. As a matter of fact, something seems to be radically wrong when many splen did second-class high schools were forced to close last Christmas on ac count of shortage of funds. But the wrong cannpt be righted by carrying out the slogan of "Up with Arith metic and Down with the Grades." Neither can it be done by going back to pioneer methods and curricula. These had their day and served ef fectively, but it seems foolish to ask for their return in this age of prog ress ana efficiency. Let those who would speak of the evils of our public school system or seek a remedy for their cure look deep into the matter before they make .such absurd statements. O. L. R, Strange Bible Facts. The learned Prince of Grenada, heir to the Spanish throne,' impris oned by order- of the crown for fear he might aspire to the throne, was kept in solitary confinement in the old prison at the Palace of Skulls, Madrid. After thirty-three years in the liv ing tomb, death came to his release and the following remarkable re searches taken from the Bible and marked with an old nail on the rough wafls of his cell tell how the brain sought employment thru the weary years. In the Bible the word Lord is found 1853 times, the word Jehovah 6855 times, and the word reverent but once and that in the ninth verse of Psalm CXI. The eighth verse of Psalm CXVII is the middle verse of the Bible. The ninth verse of the eighth chapter of Esther is the long est verse. John XI: 35 is the short est. Psalm CVII has four verses alike the eighth fifteenth, twenty first and thirty-first. Each verse of Psalm CXXXVI ends alike. No names or words of more than six syl lables are found in the Bible. Isaiah Axxvix ana u kxnus xix are alike. The word girl occurs but once and that in Joel III and eighth verse.
