I naturally supposed the interment would be at your old Home at Seymour and went to Columbus wednesday morning intending to go there with you.

I thank Benjamin f. Underwood with All my heart and i thank the Quot old Friend Quot for his honesty and Candor. The hero is dead. Quot we Neer shall look upon his like he is at rest. We. E. Ren Wick. Dear brother Harry a your sad letter was received this morning. I cannot express in words Bow sorry i feel for you now that your two Best friends and the two you loved Best Are gone. I know you must feel very sad and lonely. But your father was getting old and his health being feeble you could not expect him to be with you very much longer. You no doubt will miss him More than any a of the others As you were always together but your remembrance of your associations with him though sad will be Sweet and pleasant As you always got along so Well together and you will have nothing to reproach yourself for in your conduct toward him for no son could hav been More Dutiful and kind and devoted to a father than you have been. This consciousness will help you to Bear your grief More bravely and resignedly. We All Honor you for your honorable and upright principles. We received the paper containing the funeral address and the biographical sketch of your Fathor. The funeral oration is very Fine indeed and is a fitting tribute to the memory of your father. From the letter received last tuesday i thought he must have died suddenly As you did not say anything about him being dangerously ill. I never thought but that he would be Able to go to the office again for he had been poorly so Many times and then recovered. We were shocked when we heard of his death though i cannot say i was very much surprised for i often thought he would die suddenly. This being the 16th, brings to mind the sickness and suffering of the one Dearest to both you and us and As i sit Here before her picture i wonder to myself if it is really possible that she has been dead five months and that we will see her no More in this world. There is always a Sweet pleasure in thinking of one so pure gentle and Good As she was. I am glad your father did not suffer As she did. Jay seems quite Well now and has been promoted in school. All join in sending love. Hoping to hear from you soon again i am As Ever Louis with much love and sympathy Jennie Pierson.

This Consolation he shall reap in death As life an honoured place. He being knowing feeling All.

San Carlos Asenct a. T., nov. 8, 1891. De. Ironclad a All readers of the Bible Are aware that among the Laws that god gave to Moses was one concerning in legitimates that they should not enter the congregation of the lord until the third generation and yet years afterwards without repealing this Annast restriction he himself and without a special dispensation from the Pope borrowed Joe the Carpenter s Best girl to raise a child by and christians in spite of this command to Moses go right along giving this illegitimate Jesus More Praise than they Ever did his dad. I have often brought this subject to the attention of christians and ask them How it is that right in the face of god condemning the illegitimate to stay out of the congregation they the christians take him into every Church give him the Best seat any amount of Taffy and elevate him to the dignity of a god while for my trouble they give me ample promises of hell everlasting. Lately i have been Reading a Book called Quot the key to theosophy Quot which a Friend had loaned me and in it i find a discussion Between a missionary and a Buddhist priest which is More forcible on the above subject than anything i have seen. It is like this a the Buddhist priest premised by asking the missionary whether his god had Given commandments to Moses Only for men to keep but to be broken by god himself. The missionary denied this supposition indignantly. Quot Well Quot said the Buddhist Quot you Tell us that god makes no exception to this Rule and that no soul can be born without his will. Now god forbids adultery and yet you say it is he who creates every infant born and he who endows it with a soul. Are we then to understand that the millions of children born in crime and adultery Are your god s work that he forbids and punishes the breaking of his Laws and that nevertheless he creates daily and hourly souls for Juat such children according to the simplest logic your god is an accomplice in the crime since but for his help and interference no such children of lust could be born. Where is the Justice of punishing not Only the guilty parents but even the innocent babe for that which is done by that very god whom yet you Ezon orate from any guilt Quot the missionary looked at his watch and suddenly found that it was getting too late for further discussion. E. G. Vandalsem. In a recent lecture or. B. F. Underwood truly and wisely said Quot i do not think that there is any specific any great cure All for our Industrial and social ills. We Are what we Are by reason of the generations that have gone before us. A Chain is never stronger than its weakest link. We must strive to develop the health and Well being of every individual. Every question ultimately becomes a moral question and will finally have to be settled upon an ethical basis. It will have to be settled by thought for thought rules the world. Improvement is possible but no sudden transformation involving change in the Odb citation of Man is silent Reading. Spring held Republican. Supt. Balliet gave his second talk to the primary teachers yesterday afternoon at the High school with Quot Reading Quot As his Subj it. There arc two kinds of Reading he said silent Reading and Oral Reading. The former is a process of getting thought from the printed Page the latter a process of a living thought thus gotten to others. The Reading of most people in practical life is confined to silent Reading. The Power of extracting quickly and yet accurately the thought from the printed Page is a most valuable one and must be cultivated in the school. Years of experience has shown that Oral Reading alone will not do it hence a part of the time in Reading must be devoted to training in Quick accurate silent Reading. I shall speak later of Oral Reading and wish to confine my remarks chiefly to silent Reading. Silent Reading May be described As a process of getting thought from printed language through the Eye to omit the Reading of the Blind. Hence it is essential that the Eye be trained to grasp quickly whole words phrases and Short sentences. Most people in Reading recognize Only words and phrases As wholes some recognize entire . The former May be said to read by words and phrases the latter by sentences. Nobody reads by letters. Hence As the mind has a tendency to follow the earliest habit the child should be trained to recognize words and As far As possible Short sentences As wholes just As he recognizes people s faces As wholes before he is taught the letters and to Quot spell out Quot the words. This is one of the strongest arguments for the sentence and word methods of teaching Reading now universally used in Good schools. Rapid Reading is not necessarily superficial Reading. Much of the Light literature everybody ought to read ought to be read rapidly. Superficial Reading is due not to rapid Reading but to superficial habits of thought. It is always accompanied by superficial talking. Hence thoughtfulness and mental concentration need not and dare not be sacrificed in order to secure rapidity. The Eye is trained to take in whole phrases and sentences at a time in silent Reading. In Oral Reading it forms the habit of recognizing words no faster than the voice can pronounce them. Hence children who have no books to read silently at Home and have Only Oral Reading in school Are slow in grasping the sense of a Book and usually can not read silently any faster than they read orally. Besides the recognition of words and phrases or sentences As wholes the Eye must also be trained to recognize them without stopping As it moves along the printed line. In talking and in Oral Reading words must be pronounced in groups. Quot the Bird sits in the top of the tree Quot would sound to the ear of a foreigner As four words a Dis syllable a monosyllables and a tri syllable. The so called Quot monotonous Quot sing song Reading which was so common in All Public schools less than Twenty years ago seemed monotonous because the words were pronounced separately and not in groups. Now in order that the child May pronounce the words in groups his Eye must be trained to recognise them in groups by moving or gliding along the line without stopping. Pointing to the words with Finger or Pencil is therefore wrong As it leads him to Stop his Eye every time. As Long As be has not the ability to recognize words and phrases without stopping his Eye he ought to be required to read every sentence silently before he reads it orally and then take his Eye off it when he does read it orally. If this Rule is observed be never Falls into the vicious habit of sing song Reading. In Reading the movements of the Eye Are accomplished by four of its Muscles. The movements consist of a Hori Yontal one along the printed line and a vertical movement necessary to pass on to the next lower line. These movements must be Learned. Of the two the vertical movement is the More difficult. When children Quot skip Quot a line it is because the Muscles of their eyes have not yet had sufficient practice in moving the Eye just the right distance to catch the next lower line. It is therefore a mistake to accuse a child of carelessness in such a Case. The habit of moving the Eye horizontally is soon acquired and after that when the child is asked to read while holding the Book in such a Way that the lines Are not parallel with a line running through both of his eyes that is when be is not looking Quot squarely Quot at the Page he is very Apt to read the same line twice or to skip a line. Hence when two children read from the same Book while both Are holding it their eyes strike the Page in a Way to make it difficult for them to read without committing the above mistake. Only a stupid teacher would blame the children in such a Case. Adults would be Apt to make the same mistake. The Eye forms also the habit of swinging to the right and left for Only a definite distance determined by the Width of the Page. Hence it is important that the widths of the Page in All Reading books should be about the same. This fact explains in part Why it annoys even adults to read the Short lines of printed matter along the Side of a picture in a Magazine. The Reader must consciously adjust the movements of his eyes. People who read by sentences experience the additional annoyance of being obliged to grasp a sentence spread Over five or six lines. In some of our school readers you can find lines of three and four different lengths on the same Page along with a picture which covers the rest of the Page. In one Reader not used in our schools i have found a sentence printed vertically that is with Only a single word to the line to fill up the space Between the picture and the margin of the Page.
