There are officeholders in Texas who couldn I earn $500 a year in an honest private business, yet they are bowling because $2500 or $3000 is not sufficient to pay their expenses while holding public office. Since congress found out that Ted the Terrible Is only a blustering bully and that the big suck is a stui.ed club it is giving .c to him good and plenty. The only wonder Is how ne played the game so long without getting found out. Mr. Bryan has unequivocally and emphatically said that he does not desire another nomination for the presidency and would accept it only in the improbable event that the peo ple again called on him to be their leader. This is all he ought to say and the fact that he is ptili misrepre sented, and criticized only serves to show how truly great he is and how his enemies fear him. Hymn Choir and congregation.

Children should be given the en- Ithorizing the creation of Improve- Joyment of sucn a course in the lower grades, and it was a matter of sur prise to me to find that it had been overlooked so long In the Bryan schools. Among leading educators. k,iere is no difference of opinion on t.is subject. Not only did I place this subject in our regular course 01 study, but I put it in the list of subjects for our City Institute, that a clear aid con cise method of the presentation niluht be gone over with the teachers. The opinions of such thinkers as Chubb and DeGarmo were carefullv , orable considered in order that teachers might give their pupils as much pleasure and profit as possble.

The teachers in the various grades are doing the same thing, and the pupils are beglning to realize that medals and prices are false educa tional Ideas. In keeping . with this idea of literary appreciation, was the ty, recent i.ongrenow iintertainment civ-' en by Miss Ada Board and her sixth grade pupils. Everything said and represented had a direct bearing on the idea of literary appreciaton. .Miss Board carried out the Idea beautifully and sncessfully. All gradei above the fifth were present, and quite a number of the good p ople of Bryan were there to snow their inter est in the progress of the pupils. in this connection, I may alio state that wrong use of memory retards our work .n placing the schools on a higher plane. .Memory has its proper place, and it should be used properly. The dam age conies not in use of memory, but in its abuse. The old mediaeval idea ced as soon as possible.

VIck's Feed Ktnro faculties. That idea substituted au thority for reason, and hung medals ' and prizes at the ned of the line. Ex aminations were memory tests. China has that system yet, hence the back wardness of China. Just as China has failed to measure up with strong rations, so will, your child fail to measure up with other pupils in high er grades, if he is taught to use ver bal memory where he ought to think clearly. I am moved to make these remaii:s because examination is approaching. and it will not consist of memory tests where thinking .s necessary. It is not so much WHAT they do, as HOW they do it. That is whv I urge the duty of subjects, reasoning, and the constant applcation of the know ietue gained, more man mere repe tition and Imagination. Just here, I want to say, that much home study by children, too often re suits in memorizing things they do not understand, and too much help- so mucn carrying them that they do not learn to stand alone. This leaves out of consideration the additional fact that growing children need rest and relaxation, and that par ents and teachers should not move ex cessive demands on them. I want to add, that I would not hitch a young colt to a heavy log-wag on, nor a young child to heavy school work. In either case arrested devel opment results somewhere along the line, and. In either case, load or team will almost invariably be left behind somewhere. In bringing about these changes which I consider to be for the be3t interests of the schools, I am trying to make myself felt, rather than seen. I am trying to le to every teacher a courteous and considerate director, rather than an exacting taskmaster. The teachers are responding nobly. and the schools are improving. In the further improvement of the schools, and curing ailments due in a large measure to causes which I have mentioned, I i.sk the cordial as sistance of the people of Bryan. Respectfully, ' W. C.
