ply intestinal disorder, accompanied by
fever of much less severity, according to
Dr. Langfeidt, tho city bacteriologist.
Of seventy-five cases of Illness, reported

eighteen showing traces of typhoid bacilli
The remaining casos showed fever to ac
company the Illness, but there was
trace whatever of typhoid germs.
..W The report of tb city bacteriologist
made following actual blood tests of pa
Uents supposedly suffering from typhoid
No' blame, however, Is attached by the
health department to physicians regarding
reports: In the early stages symptoms
are the same and real typhoid cases do
not assume a dangerous aspect until the
fourth or fifth day.
i. Most of the cases where there is a
marked, fever are believed to be a sort of
intestinal grip, not particularly dangerous,
but still needing careful attention.
Although It is advisable to boil city
drinking water In order to avoid Intestinal
trouble and possible Infection from typhoid

improved within the last few days.

The regular announcement and Invitation
haa Just been Issued to the Eighth Annual
State High School Contest In Declamation
under the auspices of Yankton college, to
be held at Yankton. May IS, 1310. This an
nouncement and Invitation, as usual, goes
to every high school In the state.
Ths state contests In deolamatlon, as
originated by the faculty of Yankton col
lege seven years ago, has proved a means
of helpful stimulation to this Important
branch of school work. A large number of
the best high schools have participated
In these contests from yesr to year; and
principals, teachers and all concerned have
expressed their approval of them. Last
year's meeting was the largest and best
ever held In- the nlstory of the contest.
twenty-three contestant! -.being present.
and large numbers of visitors, representing
high schools In all parts of the state.
The usual manner of selecting the rep
resentative of the high school Is to hold a
local declamation contest. This always
proves interesting , and stimulating : to
Last year a new plan was tried, of hav
ing two different classes of declamations.
One was known as. the "general jlaas,"
In which there was, no limitation as to
subject, and the other was known as the
'oratorical class," (n Which It was recom
mended that the selections be taken from
the great masterpieces of oratory. This
latter kind of declamation naturally ap
peals mors to the young men. The new
plan gave suoh ' good satisfaction last
year that It will be permanently continued.
Each of these two classes will be judged
separately, and solid gold and silver med
als will be presented to those winning first
and second place in each class.' Also the
high school winning first in ach class
will be presented with a handsome stats
championship banrvi. - ,
The utmost pains will be taken to secure
competent judges, who will be acceptable
to all schools represented. Every effort
will be made to make the occasion a pleas
ant and profitable . on for contestants
and their friends, and all may be as
sured of a hearty welcome. " '
The committee having charge of the
contest this ysar consists -of Prof. G. H.
Durand and Prof.. Alice R. Kingsbury.
Prof. Lyon, chairman of the committee,
Is the head of the Department of Public
Speaking In Yankton college, and his work
Is already held in very high regard hers.
Mr. Lyon Is strongly'. Interested In the
stats contest, and his connection with it
will be a valuable aid 'to the work.

work has been Increased, but the pay has
not been adjusted so that It could be ac
cepted as Just compensation. There has
been always discrimination In favor of the
men' members of the profession.
Take another instance. It Is a well
recognised principle that the supervisor
should be paid a higher Salary than the
person supervised by 'him. Yet In New
York's remarkable schedule of salaries the
maximum salary of an Assistant to princi

supervises male teachers who receive as
high as f3,Iflt and even 12,000.
Again, to be principal one must have had
at least ten years of experience, must
have passed an examination, which records
prove to be very difficult, and must have
waited often as long as four years for
appointment from an eligible llpt. Suppos

A Corrective of Evil that In Itself
"It strikes me that It Is better to have
a boy whipped than to let him go straight
to the devil." said United States Commis
sioner of Education Brown, quoted by the
Chicago Inter i Ocean, In discussing the
question of corporal punishment as a dis
ciplinary measure In schools. Ha added,
however, that'the doubt of tho accom
plishment of the desired end In checking
a downward career by this means In any
particular case and the many evils ac
companying this form of punishment
seemed to he Causing Its gradual elimina
tion. 7 4
When ' his attention was called to tha
fact that the Baltimore school author!
ties had under consideration tho question
of reviving this corrective means In the
schools of that city Mr. Brown expressed
tha belief that It Is preferable to whip
a boy it It will turn his course from evil.
Continuing, he said:
"There are cases undoubtedly where a
loving sort of whipping has shunted a boy
off the downward track, but It Is pretty
hard to tall in any given case whether tt
will have that effect or not, and there are
so many ' evils attending that form of
punishment that . It seems to be slowly
dying out in this country."
The ' cruelties which accompanied the
whipping of children In tha schools In the
past were disappearing, he said, and re
sort to i that means of punishment was
gradually being diminished.
