The Kadoka Press (Newspaper) - January 14, 1910, Kadoka, South DakotaEVOLUME II ''y I / / y # £' A, - > § * y V' w .w*”* j THE KADOKA PRESS. EDUCATION ! (The following addr< ss was prepared hy llev. Thos. J. F. McNaboe to bo delivered at the dedicatory exer- eiaeti of the high school building last week. Because of blockaded trains he was unable to be present, and we herewith give our readers his address.— LPiToits) Education is so comprehensive and complex a subject that one docs not pose as a master in all its branches. For just as nowadays students and pro¦ ::i our divinity schools are happy if they can avswer any one of the-tna iy divisions of L*i:»!• study no my aim in this address will he di vot- ed chioTly toward the education oi the h*art and mind. Mativ may imagine then my regret at the trend of education * >-dr.y a . . from reiigi n, as portrayed not only hy the effects ns recorded in its col- umns of the daily press, where mur- ders, thefts, divorces, lit s, etc., stick thickly as currants in our Christmas plum pudding. The exclusion of religious education is indeed a great evil, that bodes mischief to our country and endang- ers the stability of our government and arises from our mutilated and de- fective! system of general education. The popular errors now existing in reference to education spring from an incorrect notion of the term. To ed- ucate means to bring cut, to develop the intellectual, moral and religious faculties of the soul. Therefore, an education. that improves ihe mind and memory to the neglect of the moral and religions is an imperfect system. ‘•To educate, according to Webster, is to instill into the n. d, principles of art, science, morals, religion and behavior.” ‘To educate” he says. in the arts is important, in religion, indispensable. It is eminently useful that the in- tellect of our youth should be devel- oped and tiiat they should be made familiar with tin branches of knowl- edge which they are afterwards likely to pursue. They can go forth into the world, gifted with a well-furnish- ed mind and armed with a lever by which they may eievato themselves in the scocial scale and become valu- able members of »ia itby. It is also moat desirable that they should be made acquainted in the course of their studies with the history of our country, with the origin and principles of its government, and with the eminent men who have served it by their statesmanship and defended it by their valor. 'J his knowledge will instruct them in their rights and duties as citizens, and make them en- lightened citizens and devoted pa t riots. It is not onough for children to have a secular education, they must receive a religious training. Religious knowl- edge is as far above human science as 1 heaven is above the earth. The little child that knows the Christian cate- chism is more enlightened oil truths that should come homo to eyery ra- tional being than the greatest philos- ophers of pagan times, or even the many so-called philosophers of our own day. He has mastered the greal problem of life. He knows his origin, 1 sublime destiny and the means of at- taining it, a knowledge which no hu- man science can impart without the i light of revelation. (lod has given us a heart to be' formed to virtue as well as a head to be enlightened. Secular education impresses the mind; religious training directs the heart.. It is not siulieient, to know how to read and write, to undi stand tk rudiments of grammar ami arithme- tic. We must practically learn the great distance between time and eternity. The knowledge of book- keeping is not sullicicnt, unless we are taught to balance our ac ounU, daily between our conscience and our God. It ¦will profit us little to under- stand all about the earth, unless we add to this science some heavenly as- tronomy. We should know and feel that our future Is to be beyond the stars in heaven, and, if we lead a virtuous life here, we shall shine as stars for all eternity. We want our children to be not only polished members of society, hut also conscientious Christians. We wish them to be not only men of the world, but, above all men of God. Our youths cherish the hope of be- coming one day citizens of heaven as well as of this land. Ami so they cannot he good citizens of this count- ry without studying and observing its laws, neither can they become citizens of hea .’on unless they know and prac- tice the laws of God. It is, then, only by a good religious education that we learn to know and to fulfillour duties toward o'jr Creator. KADOKA.

The religious and secular educate n rtf our children cannot be divorced each otlier without indicting a latai wound on the ;ouls. Education is to the soul what food is to the body. The milk with which the infant is nurished at its mother’s breast feeds not only its head, but permeates at the same time its heart and the other organs of the body. In like manner the intel!'*ct'.ial and moral growth of our children should go hand in hand; otherwise their education is shallow and fragmentary, and after proves a curse instead of a blessing. Guizot, an eminent IV \nt wrifc- c ot France, says, “in me’ ¦ proper educa. on tru> cialiy useful i. mas. b di religious. It is uetessary • •> . tiona! ed ' i should be given ana. p :v ¦1 in midst of a religious atmosphere, Religion is not a study, or an exercise, to bo restricted to a certain place or a certain hour; it is a faith and a law which ought to he felt everywhere, and which, after this manner alone, can exercise all its beneficial influence upon our iniud and our life.” In IhVi country the citizens happily enlor the largest liberty. The wider the‘liberty the more efficient should As the time f r the Farmers’ In- stitute and Short Course draws near the number who have signified a de- sire to join the classes slowly in- crease untilat tlie present time there are about thirty who handed in their names and from the interest that is being manifested it would be nothing surprising to see a class of a hundred taking the work.

The ship that is destined to sail on the rough seas should be well baiasted. The only way to preserve the blessings of civil freedom within lawful bounds is to inculcate in the mind o: youth while at school the virtues of truth, justice, honesty, temperance, selfrestraint and those other fundamental duties comprised in the Christian code of morals. The instructions given once a week in our Sunday Schools, though pro- ductive of benellcial results, are iu- HUlficient to supply the religious wants of our children. They should as far as possible, breathe, every day, a healthy religious atmosphere. By what principle of justicoean you store their mind with earthly knowledge for several hours each day, while their heart, which requires far more culti- vation, must be content with a paltry allowance of a few weekly lessons. 1 am not unmindful of the blessed influence of a home education, and especially of a mother’s teaching. How many mothers have not the time to devote to the education of their children? How many mothers have not the capacity? How many, also, have not the inclination? And granting even that the mother has done her duty, the child’s train- ing does not end with the mother, bu’ it will be supplemented by a cour.-e in other schools. And of what avail is a mot:., rs toil if the seeds of faith that she has planted attain a sickly grouth in the cheerless atmos- phere of a schoolroom from w Inch the sun of religion is rigidly excluded. Year erics to year as they pass by example to example, sin to sin; all unite in flaming letters the one deep ueed, the one remedy, the most uni- versal and far reaching panacea for our bleeding body politic, our sin-sick motherland: “Let religion in the schools.” This can be done and not offend the particular beliefs of each reasonable group of believers.

An exehauge says: A popular so- ! cial affair among the newspaper boys is a “subscription shower.” It's a good deal like the linen and china shower gi /en in honor of prospective brides. A number of subscribers whose subscriptions are duo got to- gether and induce all their neighbors to join them. They go in a body to the newspaper office, where each one planks down a dollar and takes credit for a year’s subscription. If the edi- tor’s face is wreathed in smiles the affair is a success. If he looks glum and grouchy, the affair is a failure | an l not worth trying agaiu. i A j\ * N •< WENTZYS START BANKS. Harry and Albert Wentzy liave made a deal with Johnson Bros, the well-known capitalists of Charles Mix and Rapid City, whereby, the John- sons and llarrv and Albert will es- tablish two banks at Soeriic and Farm- ingdale in Pennington county on the Milwaukee extension. The two towns are small, Scenic having a population of about fifty and Farmingdale a lit- tle belter, but there is a wide field for farm loans—which is a big induce- ment to Johnson Bros, with their largo capital Albert Wentzy willbe cashier of the hauk at Scenic. Wo think the bpv« have made a wise move in jumping into iho banking business. It does not take any more capital than the newspaper business and pays about a thousand per cent better. —Kimball Graphic. WEDDING BELLS. The following clipping from the Tyndall Tribune of January 7th, con- firmed the suspicions of our citizens who were expecting such an event: ‘‘Last Tuesday morning at, 8 o’- clock, Mies Antonia Hrachovec, of this city was married to Colon- el Bliss Holland, of Cottonwood, Rev. Father Lehecka performing the ceremony. The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Hrachovec, highly respected members of this community and the groom is a successful young farmer. The young- people left on a wedding trip to lowa and in a few weeks willreturn and take up their residence on the groom’s homestead near Cottonwood. A large circle of Tyndall friends unite in wishing them happiness and success.” These young people have, during the past three years, been residents of our little city aud have a host o friends here who join with the Press in extending hearty congratulations They are at present at the home of the groom on his claim near Cotton- wood. It is expected that they will visit this city about the middle of the mouth when their friends will have an opportunity to greet them. Card cf Thatks. Rev. I). Weesner and wife wishes to thank the good people who so kindly contributed for their Christ- mas present which consisted of a nice lot of coal, which we stood in need of.

NUMBER 37 MEN NEEDED A call for more applcants for places as census enumerators has been issued by supervisor of census Geo. B. Mans- field, Rapid City, S. D.. He urges all poisons in his district desiring to servo to obtain their application forms at once and to file them with him before January 25, when ho must stop con- sidering new applications in order to propan* for the “test” of the previ- ous applicants on February 5. After this he willexamine and rate the pa- pers until about February 22. when he willfora ard his list of designations as enumerators, with their “test” pa- pers, to Census Director Durand, who willcarefully go over and rerate the papers of the successful candidates before giving bis consent to the is- sue of commissions to them by the supervisor. By the middle or latter part of March all the enumerators willhave been commissioned and in receipt of detaied instructions con- cerning their work. To quiet any qualms relative to the “test” of the qualifications of appli- cants, to he made February 5, the su- pervisor has obtained some informa- tion from the Census Director con- cerning the “test” of Twelfth Census enumerators. It has been ofllcially stated that the 1910 “test” willbe very similar to the one in the preced- ing census and will consist in requir- ing applicants to fill sample schedules trom printed narratives concerning census facts. As the rural enumera- tors are to carry both the population and agricultural schedule, they will be “tested” with samples of both, but the city enumerators, who carry the population schedule alone, will only bo required to prove their übility by tilling a sample of that schedule. The •‘test” population schedule nar- rative in 1900 was, in part, as follows: “The enumerator of the forty-fifth enumeration district of the ninth sup- ervisor’s district of the State of Penn- sylvania, in the village of Port Royal Londonderry Township, Bchuylkllll County, begins bis enumeration June 1, lfKtp, at No. 201 Pur to a street.' “This house is occupied by a single family, consisting of Patrick O'Leary, his wife, Margaret, an.l his son James, “Patrick came to ibis country from Ireland (where he was born of Irish parents] In May of IH7O, when ho was just 22 yeuts old. Three years after bis anivul he was married to an Irish girl who hud come over from his native village a jear before. As soon as possible he become naturaliz- ed. He can read and write and speak English, and owns a good house, free of incumbrance, which he has bought from his earnings as a teamster, in which occupation he has hud steady work during the past year. “Margaret, his wife, is also of Irish parentage, and was horn in January, and is nearly four years younger than ber husband. She has bud two child- ren, only one of whom is living. She can read and speak English, but lias to make ber ‘mark’ for her signature. “James was born in Harrisburg, February, 1875. He lias.a good com- mon school education, works at any sort of day labor, and secuied nine months’ steady work during the past year. He is not married. “In the next house, 203 Burton St., the enumerator found an English wo- man by the name of Mrs. Jane Parker, a widow, occupying a rented house with her single daughter, Nellie E., and the husband of rhe latter, Albert Johnson. "Mrs. Parker came to this country ¦’A years ago, has a good education, is a dressmaker by trade, and lias ; constant employment. She was 60 : years old last April, and is of Scottish .» birt hon her mother’s side. She has bad four children, three of whom are living and one of whom has died. “Virginiais of English parentage, has been through tho local schools and has been a saleswoman for eight month., of the part hear; she was born in Philadelphia in March, 1877. “Nellie E. w as 28 years ok! last Jan- uary, and has but recently married. She was born iu Baltimore, reads, writes, and speaks English. “Albert Johnson, the hnshaud of Nellie, was born in New York City, of Welsh parents, November, 1885. lie is in the grocery business and keeps his own books and accounts.” It seems comparatively simple, ac- cording to the supervisor, to draw out of the above statement the required details for the populatien schedule and to enter them under the proper column divisions relating, to location name, relationship, personal descrip- tion, gativity, citizenship, occupation education, etc. About all such a “test” can do is to evidence the legibility of an appli- cant’s handwriting and his ability to determine where to write in the sam- ple schedule the facts clearly stated lUthe narrative. The agricultural schedule na-rative for 1909 was very similar, except that tho facts stated relate to farms and farming operations. Before the “test” February 6, the supervisor willsend each applicant a list of instructions concerning Ailing in ti e “test” schedules, which will still further simplify the subject and insure the passing of the test by these who possess only an ardinary com- mon-school «-ducation and practical common seofe. ,41 n 13
