Edgar Draper and family left last |
Friday for an outing up in the sand-:

law of Mrs. Draper, came up from j

them first to Gandy, to visit Mrs.
Draper’s sister, and from there the I
men folks went on up to the lakes j
hunting and fishing. They were to !
be absent perhapes ten days.
Rev. Dr. Leeper gave an excellent |
educational lecture lastSunday morn
ing, showing the impracticability of i
much of the work along educational !
lines at present. In this the doctor
hits the nail directly on the head, j
To use a homely paraphrase, one could
not teach a fish to fly nor a bird to i
swim: neither can it be expected to
teach successfully, at least, the human
mind to absorb and make a success of j
that to which it is not adapted. If a J
boy or girl has an adaptability fcr a
certain kind of work or profession, it j
- is labor thrown away to insist on
I perfecting themselves in some other
i work or profession. There is too j
much cramming of the minds with
' that for which they have no talent,
no liking, no adaptation. If he be of
a mechanical turn of mind and his
energies turn in that direction, all
the dead and live languages conbind
j could not turn him to theology or
law, or vice versa. The doctor be
lieves in the law af adaptability, evi
dently, and that the child should be
taught along the lines for which he
is best fitted. And the time is com
ing, and coming rapidly, when work
along educational lines will come to
the end of eternal fitness, in which
the child will be given a chance to
perfect himself or herself more
especially in the work for which they
are peculiarly well fitted.
