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 , entertainment. 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.
