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

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,
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
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.

The religious and secular educate n
rtf our children cannot be divorced
f.om 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.

or an exercise, to bo restricted to a

a faith and a law which ought to he

this manner alone, can exercise all
its beneficial influence upon our iniud

be the safegards to prevent it from
being abused and degenerating into
license. 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.

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.
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.
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
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.

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
"Mrs. Parker came to this country

: years old last April, and is of Scottish .»

living and one of whom has died.

and has been a saleswoman for eight

in Philadelphia in March, 1877.

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
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
The agricultural schedule na-rative
for 1909 was very similar, except that
tho facts stated relate to farms and
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
