Editors Journal of Education :
I noticed this in the Journal of
June 8 : A half day is long
enough for any child of live , six
or seven to be in school. " Now
in turn , is not a half a day long
enough for any child ol live , six.
or seven to be on the street ? A
lady , whose name is well known
in school work , especially in
connection with the National
Council of Education , once ad
vocated the above doctrine , that
the school hours for primary
grades should be shortened by
one-half. Some one asked her :
"What should become of them
the remainder of the day ? " A
saddened expression came into
her face as she answeaed the in
quiry : I don't know. That is
a difficult question which I am
not prepared to answer. ' '
Of course , if we take it for
granted that the children came
from cultivated homes , in which
they are tenderly nurtured and
carefully trained , surrounded by
all elevating influences , the
statement is partially correct.
But unfortunately this is not the
case in our large cities and vil
lages. In many cases , even
with full school time should be
reduced to two and one half
hours each day , and the street
hours increased the same
amount ? Would not the school
be shorn of more than one halt
ite power ? This is not a matter
to be decided in accordance
with the first impulse. It re
quires very careful consideration -
tion and should be viewed from
The year of the iir.st graded
school I ever taught consisted
of forty-four weeks. The grey-
haired men and women whc
were pupils then , only a few o :
them remain , tell you they wen
not hurt by o 'er work. Onlj
a year or so ago one of then
said to me : " 1 have ofter
told my boys and girls that thej
have never known what hard
study means , " We have in
most places reduced the school
year to thirty-six weeks : the
school hours six to five , and we
now propose to further reduce
these hours to two and one-half.
If we grant that a boy of seven
can do the work now required ,
in one-half the time , which we
do not believe , the question at
issue is , how shall he spend the
other half ? It he is dismissed at
noon how shall he spend the
other half ? An answer is very
respectfully solicited either
from Dr.Vinship , or from some
other person who advocates the
change. Cordially ,
There is no time to counten
ance or excuse lawlessness in
any form and yet there are ac-
casions when it strains human
nature almost beyond the limit
to frown at a particular act of
lawlessness Not long ago in
Chicago park , soon after a
Philadelpia motorist had killed
a boy in the street while teasingly -
ingly chasing him with an auto
car , a man in an automobile was
having great sport scaring people
ple by making- if to run over
them. The screams of woman
and the shrieks of children were
apparently musir. to his cars ,
and no policeman appeared to
stop the refined sport. At last
the antomobilist charged a man
who did not run. Instead , when
the car came near enough , he
sprang abroad , seized the play ,
ful driver by the collar , pulled
him into the street , blacked
his eye , broke his nose , choked
him , and then tossed him back
into the car with instructions to
get out of the park as quickly
as the speed limit would per
mit. This champion ot the
women and children broke the
laws , but it is hard to wish him
A day or two ngo a New York
beach young man swam out to a
boat containing three girls ,
climbed aboard , and heedless of
their screams proceeded to rock
the boat. The boat capsized ,
whereupon the young-man swam
for the shore leaving the girls
who could not swim to their
fate. The girls were rescued
with difficulty and at great dan
ger by spectntors who then
turned their attention to the
young man who caused the trou
ble , lie was captured by the
men , and was just about to be
thrown into the water when re
scued by the police. This punishment -
ishment was unlawful , especial
ly so as the laws throw a rather
special protection about fools.
Unless we can convince our
selves that this was a case
where the ox was in the pit ,
we are morally obliged to con
demn the act as a species of
justice , but weak human nature
will do so with the mental re-
f-ervation that the boat rocker
got what he deserved or less.
We admire C. W. Parker , the
owner of the amusement company
that is to hold forth here on carni
val week , because he stands tip
for his home town Abilene , Kas. ,
It is at Abiline that the Parker
factories are located and Mr.
Parker proposes that everybody
shall know it. It might give
him more prestige to advertise
his attractions as the "latest New
York sensation , " or to post big
pictures of a seven story building
occupying two blocks in the
heart of Chicago and call the
same the Parker factories. But
instead of so doing , Mr. Parker
gives his home town the benefit
of the advertising and the name
of Abilene , Kansas , appears many
times on the lithographs that
are now posted in Falls City and
all over the surrounding country.
"The girl from Abilene" is a
title that not only advertises the
Kansas town , but answers the
purpose as well as though sht
weiu called "the girl from New
York. " The people of Abilent
should appreciate Mr. Parker.
Pioneer Picnic At Verdon
The Pioneer-Old Settlers pic
nic which is to be held at Verdon
on August 'JtliandlOtli , promises
to be a big thing. The old set
tlers picnic which has l > 2cn held
at Rothcnbergcr's grove near
Dawson , has been consolidated
with the Pioneer picnic of Ver-
lon and the two will be held as
otic this year. A splendid pro
gram has been arranged. The
music will be furnished by tlte
the Merchant's band of Nebraska
City and the principal speakers
will be lion. II. II. Wilson and
Hon. Gco. W. Berge of Lincoln
and C. F. Reavis of this city.
There will be a blue rock shoot ,
a ball game and a balloon ascen
sion each day , besides various
other attractions. Many Falls
City people are planing to attend
the picnic which promises to be a
Play Your Own Game.
Play your game with the
world the best you can. If you
get beaten do not try to lay the
blame to some one else but
stand up manfully and take your
medicine. Everybody wants to
win and you can not blame any
one for it. You are as anxious
to do so as the rest. If you go
into a big game you have a
chance for big winnings and
many chances to loose out al
together. It is your privilege
and your choice. If you ven
ture out where the big fish are
you take your chances. "Ves
sels large way venture more ,
But little craft should keep near
shore. " If you want to "play
safe , " you can. But do not fret
and whine because you do not
accomplish as much as those
who venture more and do more.
It is an old and true proposi
tion that every man is the arch
itect of his own fortunes. Ad
verse circumstances may retard
him , but if he works steadily
and dilligently with the same
end always in view he will
be successful , or as nearly so as
anybody can be. Remember ,
there are failures and disap
pointments in every life and
success is only comparative.
It is never complete in this
world. Envy no man anything
except his integrity and good
reputation and do not chide
him for that but rather try to
make your own as good. York
