The Duty of Parent in Order to
Aid the Superintendent and
Teachers in Doing Their
Respective Duties.
Next Tuesday the Plattsmouth
public schools will open for another
year's work, and the boys and girls
111 gather the little bundle of books
and move toward the place that Is to
shape his or her destiny for the
future. Do we realize the Import
ance of that picture? Do we appre
ciate the meaning of the school and
its relation to the life of the chil
dren? It Is there tbey are to receive
the mental discipline that shall make
them successful and desirable citizens
or that discipline is going to be abus
ed and they will start the career that
shall make them other than desirable
citizens. Rut whether and what this
discipline? It comes from the school,
but what is the school? The school
comprlKes all those things that con
tribute to the mental, moral and phy
sical development of the child and
this means the parent, the teacher,
pupil, asHoclatlon, the school board,
the tax payer and the school build
ing. , Here you will observe the teacher
la not the entire source of the child's
development, but Is only one of the
many factors In the school organism
and hence Is no more responsible
than the parent, which Is another fac
tor. Children will not develop right
ly unless their evenings are properly
spent. The parent who permits the
children, either high school or grade
pupils, to spend their evenings upon
the street where they congregate, of
ten with the worst society, learn pro
fanity, the use of tobacco and other
Indulgences, is setting a net t lint will
entrap his own children. The rela
tion of the purcnt to tho child ami
the parent's Influence over the child
1s much greater than that of the
teacher, therefore the parent hns no
right to hold the teacher wholly re
sponsible for the conduct and career
of the child.
Cooperation with the teacher In
Securing home study and see that the
pupil spends his evenings at home
where the environment is wholesome
snd pure. Assist the teacher In
training the child so that the right
habits will be formed. Who Is re
sponsible for the child's proper devel
opment? Who should have the most
concern about the welfare of your
The whole school organism should
work In harmony. Each member
tnuBt perform his proper function or
the whole school must suffer. We
are glnd to know that the people of
riattsmouth are proud et their
schools and they have just reason to
be. No town the size of l'lnttsmouth
offers better educational advantages
Hoys and girls should take advantage
of the opportunity of attending a first
class high school In their midst, fully

we aro now about to begin a new

The board of education has already

corn which will make very little. Mr.

Hugh Astmlssen, of the E. Wurl

he has seen the man who was myster
iously drowned Tuesday before the
day of the tragedy. If Mr. Asemissen
is correct In his opinion, Mr. Robert
son has a daughter living In Castan,

Asemissen was clerking In a store
at Castan, and formed the acquaint
ance of a man by the name of A. Rob
ertson, who came there from Illinois
and resided with a married daughter
named Mrs. Mills. Mr. Asemissen is
Investigating the matter and will
know definitely. He Is positive he
had seen the face before, and feels
quite sure that it was at the Iowa
town he knew the man. He bought
groceries several times for the daugh

money with which to buy.
