One of the most profitable even
ings afforded the people of this vicin
ity, was spent by those who had the
good fortune to be at the Presbyter
Ian church last night, and hear Supt.
V. M. Davidson of the city schools of
Omaha. Prof. Davidson was here
under the auspices of the Men's
Brotherhood of the church, and be
fully came up to the high standard
of good things set by those who had
preceded him during the winter. Af
ter the opening exercises which In
cluded a solo "Jesus Lover of My
Soul," by Mrs. J. W. Gamble,, Pres
ident Cooper, who by the way pre
sided over the meeting for the last
time, presented to the congregation
Prof. Gamble, who Introduced the
speaker of the evening. Prof. Gam
ble gave a short outline of his life
and esteem in which he Is held by
the entire educational world, and em
phasized that the opportunity of the
evening was scarcely appreciated
Prof. Davidson chose for his theme
"Patriotism and the Teacher," and
In most telling English, sometimes
poetic, sometimes majestic, some
times pathetic, and always effective
he guided the minds of his hearers
for an hour and a quarter, much to
their profit and greatly to their pleas
ure. Prof. Davidson began by direct
ing attention to the high type of
patriotism which was to be seen In
all departments of American life and
especially did he refer to those who
had so prominent a part In the car
rying to a successful culmination the
Spanish-American war. He called
the roll of those who on sua had con
tributed their part to that end. Slgs
bee, Clark, Hobson, Wftlnrlght, Ev
ans, Taylor, Schley, Sampson, and
Dewey. These all were presented
with just a word completely delineat
ing the character of the individual.
Then he mentioned In much the same
way those military heroes who had
to faithfully done their part. Alger,
Root, Shafter. Old Joe Wheeler,
Roosevelt, Miles and McKlnley, and
he showed how some act of each of
these paralleled some former tri
umph of American arms. After this
procession of the great had been pre
sented, he set forth the principle
which underlaid their btiecesa
namely, It was the triumph of the
public school system over Ignorance.
He spoke of Hampton Institute es:
tablished for the welfare of two races,
the Indian and the negro, and of Its
greatest product, and who was prob
ably the greatest statesman of all the
South, Booker T. Washington. He
Btated that he would like to place
over every educational institution
be It public or private, the motto
which he saw there, "God and Coun-
cry First, Self Afterwords." This
should be the basic principle of all
education; not mathematics, or n t
ence, or classics, but unselfishness,
character. Ideas were good and
powerful, but the permanence of the
state depended upon the ideals of
The speaker then referred to the
home as being the unit; the one
place which must be kept clean and
made strong; that when the homo be
came lax in Its morals then the state
was threatened; therefore to teach
morals became the one high purpose
of the teacher and It was Just here
said he, that the church and the
schools grasped hands; to establish
high morals for the protection of
the homo and thereby contribute to
the stability of the home. He said
that the most significant thing In
the world was a little child. And the
possibilities of this little child were
Illustrated by many references to
the great of the ages, who were but
such In the beginning. It was at this
point that the speaker gave one of
the most eloquent tributes to the
home that has been the privilege of
this writer to hear or read In years
It cannot be described; It must be
heard to be appreciated. Prof. Dnv
Idaou closed with an appeal to the
teachers to magnify their office to
Its proper place In the esteem of th
public, since it was a conservator o
nil that was best and since It con
tributed to the perpetuity of all tha
was noblest, nnd had for Its Idea
a dean, patriotic citizenship.
The public tiiould bear In niln
Hint the Brotherhood presents some
such address as this the first Sunday
night of every month, and that It Is
their purpose to present only the
best. It certainly hns been a strong
line thus fur. Mr. E. E. Beimel of
Lincoln on the theme "County Op
tion," Judge Kennedy on "Marriage
and Divorce," Judge Estelle on "The
Juvenile Court Work," and last night
Prof. Davidson. This Is n strong ar
ray of the best talent and should bo
highly appreciated by our citizens.
