tor fcho university than to hold to a
course in ado dry and impractical to the
demands of this ago. The American
high school is the poor man's college.
Lot us make it abreast the times in
every line of work.
Dp not bo over-ambitious to build up
a High school with a four years' course
in a small city or village. A good two
or three years' course would be much
bettor. Do not overcrowd the course.
If you teach Latin , for instance ,
throughout the four years , or the three ,
you cannot expect to teach everything
else. Do not give the high school more
than its share of attention. Komomber
the grades below. It would appear to
bo au abnormal condition when one-
third or one-fourth of the teachers in a
city or village are engaged exclusively
in high school work.
Many high schools of the state are
giving an intellectual activity to their
respective communities by a first-class
lecture course. Horace Mann claimed
that the leoturp platform is the people's
college. Yes , it is more , it is the larger
pulpit. It is the noblest advocate popu
lar education has ever had. It stands
for ability , genius , education , reform ,
But whatever our course of study ,
whatever our plans , let us remember :
"Knowledge does not comprise all
which is contained in the large term of
education. The feelings are to bo dis
ciplined ; the passions are to be restrain
ed ; true and worthy motives are to be
inspired ; a profound religious feeling
is to be instilled ; and pure morality
inculcated under all circumstances.
All this is comprised in education. "
And whatever our advice to our teach
ers , let us never forget to impress upon
them the true nobility of our calling.
"If work marble it will
we upon , per
ish ; if we work upon brass , time will
efface ; if we rear temples , they will
crumble into dust ; but i we work
upon immortal minds : if we imbue
them with the just fear of God and
love of our fellowmen , we engrave on
those tablets something which will
brighten to all eternity. "
Yours for Education ,
