the high schools have male teachers.
But these teachers seldom, if ever,
have anything of a personal or social
relation with the boys. They are book

young women and a few unfortunate
boys. Ih'i young male teacher whose
surroundings are marked by female

talk to the boys as he wtu d like to do:
A man under such ciicu nstances be
comes disgusted and looks for his proper
place among boys whose mental atti
tude and physical desires he can appreci

sons that the high school seldom has a
male teacher that makes any impression
upon the real boy. 'Ah, gee! he's an
old sissy,' I heard a boy remark a short
time ago when questioning some lads
about their male teacher.

Walter Propst was in Omaha recent
ly getting some dental work done, and
during the proceedings the tooth artist
casually remarked that shortly before
the death of John P. Thacker he had
had the pleasure of doing some dental
work for him. Also that he had done
some work for Tom G. Barnum shortly
i before the ill-fated wreck in which that
! gentleman lost his life. While Mr.

engage in the strenuous play, many
times half work, which served to de

"As tor the second point, modern
parents do not 'bring up' their chil
dren. They simply provide them a
home, with few or many luxuries as
the case may be, and indulge them in
ordinately. They must not be reproved
either at home or at school. If cor
rected at all it is in an indefinite, nerve
less way, even for repeated offences;
hence the correction is worse than inef
fectual, it is harmful. They receive no
incidental or deliberate home training
which fits them for life and its oppor
tunities, which develops a fortitude
that makes them masters over destiny
and eventually men in the highest, best
sense of the world. The strong, sensi
ble, firm yet gentle mother will guide
the dhild so wisely and so well that the
home influences will be ever dominant,
and no teacher in contact with him for
a few hours five times a week can pre
vail over that influence. Then, too,
the authority of the parent is always
final in the mind of the child, and, let
the teacher urge ever so eloquently,
she cannot change the idea impressul
upon the mind from infancy, that
father and mother are supreme. This
is right, and the parent who really
thinks of the welfare of the child and
trains him fcr the future is not the one
who makes the poor woman teacher
the scapegoat for all his sins of

f Wise talks by
the office boy
Some one sent the boss a bunch of books en
titled, "Business Nuggets," "The Road to Suc
cess," "The Man in Front" and such like, 1 think
he's been looking them over, for when I came to
work this morning he handed me this: Every
thing comes to those that wait, and the lazy boy
waits to greet it; but success comes on with a
rapid gait, to the man that goes to meet it." I
had to laugh, because he's the boss; but to tell
you the honest truth, a boy on this job doesn't
get any chance to apply thess wise hunches. Actually it's no credit for
a fellow to be industrioua here, because he cant be anything else. If he
lets up for an hour he wouldn't get his orders out and then there would
be people coming in anil saying lots of fierce things, but nothing about
"business success" or the "lazy boy waits to greet it.''
