Having resigned my position as Co.
Superintendent of public instruction, 1
desire to sincerely thank my friends for
their loal support at alt times, and of
the manv encouraging words that, have
been olfered in commemlaUnn of my
work; while all these will tie cherished in
my memory for years to come, I feel
that the great work, that I have just
taken up. and intended to devote my
whole attention to, is not separated very
far from the great work, that I have
just given up. I can t say that I am
fully satisfied with the results of my
educational work, but considering that I
could only give il part of my time, I
feel that the standard of our teachers are
belter than thev were years ao, and
that the schisil 1st irds, and patrons more
fully appreciate the efforts put forth by
them than ever before. It was my one
thought when I first accepted the nom

if I was elected 1 would build up the ed

and if words from others mean anything
I luva partly accomplished what 1
started out to do. Last but not least are

For many years I have carefully stui-
led the popular idea of putnotism, both
as a sentiment and as a practical truth.
My conclusion is that there exUtsagreat
deal of misapprehension, and T feel
prompted at this tim of special patriotic
fervor to present my views. I invite,
and even challenge, any of your readers
woo uo not agree with me to prove that
I am in error.
lsl. Theru is not in any part of the
Bible even a sentence that requires or
2d. The sentiment called by this name
like the word which expresses it, is
prebably of heathen origin.
ikl. The usual definition of patriotism
is "love of country." The man who
seeks to learti wnai tins phrase means
and to carry out its teachings in his life
attempts a hopeless task.
4lh. It is an exaggerated form of self-
ishness and is one of the devil's most
successful devices Ut deceive and mislead
the human race.
5lh. Il is, in fact, a delusive method tif
inducing a violation of the Sixth Cosi-
mandment "Thou shall not kill" and
is practically in opposition to the spirit
of the other nine.
Oth. Ministers and others who teach
the co-ordinate ubligation of religion and
patriotism hive no warrant in reason or
Scripture, and Hie practice largely ac- with the coming generation. The sjtlnt
cuunts for the diminished moral tone ation offered a piece of bunting call
and tendency to skepticism among the the Flag Is a form of idolatry.
