The Kansas State Teachers' Associa
tion meets at Topeka in the holiday
vacation. Extensive preparations are
making for the occasion.
The executive committee of the Ne

fixed upon the last of March as the time
for holding the annual meeting. The
program will be announced in the near
OBSERVANCE OF LAW.
Concerning teaching physiology and
hygiene in our public schools , State Supt.
Jones gives the following decision in
the Westein School Journal :
'I am frequently asked how school of
ficers may be compelled to obey the law
and carry out its provisions. This ques
tion has come with repeated forco in
connection with the law requiring phys
iology and hygiene to be taught in all
public schools. ( See subd. x , page 53 ,
laws of 1SS5) ) . I know of but one way to
compel officers to obey the law , when
they refuse or neglect to dosoand , that
is to make complaint to a court of com
petent jurisdiction , and get an order' '
from the court requiring obedience. Tn
general , the district court is the proper
There is an improvement in punctu
ality and regularity of attendance , but
our pupils fall far short of our ideal in
this respect. We desire to reduce the
cases of absence and tardiness to the
lowest possible minimum of frequency.
Aiming to encourage a spirit of emula
tion , we have had a banner framed cou"-
taining these words : "This room had
the lowest number of , cascs of absence
and tardiness last week.The room
having the lowest number of cases , is
entitled to the banner for the succeed-
ing week. The hih school room suc
ceeded in holding it three weeks , but
last week the number of cases in the
department taught by Misses Murphy
and Jamison were less , each room hav
ing the same number of cases. Conse
quently the two rooms alternate this
week , in having the banner. Another
means of securing punctuality , is to
have interesting morning exercises. The
following is a geographical puzzle which
was prepared by a pupil of the sixth
One day I went to a party. There were. '
eight persons present : .Mrs. ( hills in Wyo
ming ) Black ; 3Ir.a river in Arizona , Utah
and Colorado ) Grand ; Mrs. ( a city in Kan
sas ) Lawrence ; Mr. ( a city inlltali ) Logan :
Mrs. , ( a city in Colorada ) Greeley ; Miss ( a
river in Wash. Ter. ) Columbia ; Mrs. ( a riv
er iu Montana ) Charles ; Mrs. ( a park in
Wyoming ) Yellowstone. We hail a good :
time playing on ( a state on the map of terri !
tories and adjacent states ) Oregon ; Mrs.
a river in Utah ) Green , two hours later
called us to dinner. I must tell you how nice
the table was set. They had the knives and
forks made out of ( a region in Arizona )
Silver ; the caster made out of ( a region in
Colorado ) Gold ; the spoons made of ( a re
gion in Arizona ) Silver ; Iput somesprings (
in Idaho ) Soda ; on my potatoes for pepper.
On the table we had ( a country north-west
of Persia ) Turkey ; a chicken and ( a city in
; X. Y. ) Buffalo ; and that is all. After din
ner we all went out to take a walk in the
woods , when Mr. ( a river in Utah ) Green ,
told us that he heard ( a river in Idaho )
drinking ( a river in Montana ) Milk.
.Just then Mrs. ( a river in Utah ) Grand ,
came out of the woods. Her hair was ( si river
in Dakota ) lied , and her eyes were ( a
mountain in Penna. ) Blue , her face was
( hills in Wyoming ) Black , : uid her dress
was ( mountains in Xew Hampshire and Ver
mont ) Green. We stopped to talk to her
until it was pretty cold , when we turned
around , and I noticed a hole in the bottom of
my shoe. I stepped upon fa river in Illinois
and Wisconsin Hock , which hurt my foot
badly , and I had to go home. Our house was
near Mr. [ a bay in Wisconsin ) Green. Iliad
to walk over [ a region of Michigan ] Copper ,
to get home. When I went home , I felt bet-
ter , but I never went over to Mr. [ a river in
Utah ] Green , yet but that I was injured in
.some was. Just then I heard a knock , and 1

We herewith present another repro
duction of Miles Standish :
A SKETCH OF MILES STANDISII.
One of the Plymouth Pilgrimsnoted in
Colonial history , ; md the theme of one of
Longfellow's poems , who was born in Kng-
land in the year Lr > S-l. I Fe was a very bra\
man , short , but .strongly built , and athletic.
Broad in the .shoulders , deep chested , with
muM'lus ami sintws of iron. One of hi.s fre
quent sayingsas. . "If you wish a thingdone
well , do \our.self. . do not leave it to otheis
to do. " lie had fought a great many battles
at different places , and also fought in Fland
ers. His anus wore always bright and bur
nished , because he had done it himself , and
not left it to others * to do. His greatest friend
and household companion was.John Alden ,
who was fair-haired , azure-eyed , with del
icate Saxon complexion , and was well edu
cated. He had fallen in love with the Ptni-
ton maiden , Priscilla. who was alone in the
world , as her father and brother had died the
previous winter. As he was writing oneday ,
the captain asked to have a eonvi'rwition with
him , when he was tlnoiigh writinir. As John
began laying away his writing material , the
captain began by sajing. he had been weary
and dreary since his wife Hose Standish died ,
and asked him if he would ao and ask Pris
cilla if .she would be his wife. John Alden
asked if this was the n a-ou he had been
waiting so long , hathiir to ask her himself ,
for fear of refusal , but made answer by say
ing : ' 'If you wish : i thing done well , do it
yourself , do not leave it to others to do , " but
said he would go. When he reached Prise-il
ia's house , he found her siione. IJe told of
the captain's bravery and of all the battles he
had fought. But when he paused for her an
swer , she said , ' "Why don't \ on uk foryotir-
self , John ? " John rushed through the night
toward homo , as lie knew how angry the cap-
tain would he. When .John returned with his
message to the captain , and told him about
Priscilla , Miles Standish's anger burst foith
in a minute. But in the midst of the scene a
messenger appealed in the doonay. . saying
that there weie minors of war , and that he
was wanted immediately. He dropped every
thing and wsis off. It wsis but a few days
when Priscilla came and asked pardon for
what she had said. And. as they were sitting
ilone one evening , a messenger was sent , say
ing he had brought sad news from the village.
1'liat his friend Miles Standish was dead.
They were sorry , but John felt that he had
liis release , and that he was free to marr\
Priscilla at any time. So the wedding daj
was fixed. So their friends assembled togeth-
jr. As the magistrate was about to pro-
louncc them man and wife , a fonu appeared
it the doorway , all clad in hLs armor of .steel.
Lo ! when they turned and saw that it was
'The Great Captain of Plymouth , " Miles
itandish , what was their surprise ? The
raptain came forth , bowed and asked for-
jiveness , then saluted Priscilla , and said : " 1
ihoiild have remembered the old adage : "it
on wish a thing done well , do it yourself ,
lo not leave it to others. " They were nevei
letter friends than at that time. And now at
have no more to say about this great man.
