We agree and here it is: "She never earned any money —she lives on an Ohio farm, but she lives on almost every other farm. She is somebody's mother, maybe your own..She has earned nothing) No, but during her thirty working years she has served 432,983 meals .she has made 3,123 garments,- 32,000 loaves of bread, .5,390 cakes, 7, 932 pies, 1,500 gallon^?? lard she has grown 1 432 bushels of vegetables, Ind 'has 660 chickens churned 5,430 pounds of butter put up 3,625 jars.. of preserves scrubbed 17.7,725 article of laundry and she ha? put jn .35,839 hojurs of sweeping and washing, ^nd scrubbing.

A.", seems to be the sen I timent of teachers and educa- Huron Convention approaches. Only once before since 1884, has there been a woman president, in 1895 when Kate Taubman held that position. Only one wo man is mentioned for the posi tion—Miss June Emry, Dean of Collegiate Department at Eas tern State Normal School. Miss Emry was unanimously endors ed by the County Superintend ents at theJr meeting last July and there is little doubt that she will be unanimously elected as was Supt. Lindsey last year at Aberdeen. Miss Emry has had a broad, training, and even broad er experience, which with a gift, for leadership, will make her a very strong executive for thie Association. She represents the Coupty Supts., and the rural teacherr .as well as the Normal ssho^ls, having seryed as teach* erf ^Principal, Supt. of schools^ County Supt. and now college teacher. Another vital topic for- the Convention is the next place, to meet, which is seldom unani mously decided.
