No. 5.


Just before the expiration of his official term as state superintendent of public instruction Mr. D. M. Geeting announced his purchase of the Indiana School Journal from the veteran editor, W. A. Bell. The purchase takes effect, as we understand it, with the June issue. Mr. Bell retires from active business, and Mr. Geeting will devote his whole time to the publication of the Journal.




Our readers will be pleased to Professor find in this issue of The EduS. H. Clark. CATOR the first half of an article on Reading by Professor Clark of the Chicago University. The fact that he is revising the school readers for the state of Indiana creates a natural interest to know what his theories of reading may be. The latter half of the article will appear in July. It is a pleasure to state also that arrangements are completed for a series of articles from him in connection with the township institute study for the coming year. This will be a great privilege for readers of THE EDUCATOR.



A timely and well expressed Graduating plea for a modification of the Essays. old style commencement essay will be found in Superintendent Harney's little

article on another page. Graduation is one of the most interesting occasions of a young person's life and the wish to make the most of it is both natural and commendable. But there can be no doubt that a great part of the etherialized sentiment which finds expression in orations and essays at this time is in such contrast with the plain practical realities of daily life as to lose its influence. A change in favor of simpler themes worked out in the student's own way and expressing his own experience and attainments is highly desirable.

Two Reminders.

Subscribers to the INLAND EDUCATOR are urged to keep in mind the postal regulation that applies to second-class matter. Postmasters can not lawfully forward periodicals unless postage is paid in advance. To send this to your former postmaster is about five times as expensive as to send a card directly to the publishers by the 20th of the month preceding the change. Everbody knows this, of course, but yet thousands neglect it every year. This reminder therefore is entirely in the interests of our patrons. A second is for our mutual good. Year after year large numbers of subscribers change their addresses without a word of advice. Later in the year, when we write to ask for payment of subscription they protest that they have not received the paper and hence owe nothing. Other correspondence usually follows which is expensive and often irritating on both sides. Please help us reduce this friction and loss to a minimum by advising us of your wish. If you move tell us where to send your paper. If you do not wish to continue your subscription drop us a card saying so. This will save loss and time and patience all around, and will help us to give our friends an increasingly better journal.

The railroads offer options one way and returning another with all the stop-over privileges that could be desired. The trip therefore means, to teachers east of the Mississippi, a tour of the Union with Yosemite, the Grand Cañon of the Colorado, the antiquities in the old Spanish territory of New Mexico, Arizona and southern California, the Pacific coast, the Rocky Mountains and some other things thrown in at only a trifling additional cost.

position. It is natural

reform worthy of the name
Indeed, the value of any pro-

mange may often be measured by the
rength of the opposition to it. Superintendent
Andrews has appeared as its latest champion in
Chicago, and the newspapers of that city are up
in arms against the "unmitigated phrod." The
most that they appear to have accomplished,
however, is to poke a little fun at the sugges-
tions, and to assert that they should not have
been made. It does seem like sacrilege to mu-
tilate old forms whose age should make them
sacred, but conventionalities are less stubborn
than they once were, while the most grotesque
forms need but the sanction of fashion to make
them not only endured but presently even em-
braced. Not very long ago it seemed like affec-
tation to spell programme without the final me.
Within a few years those letters have come to
look like an excrescence. Humor, favor and
honor have each lost a u in America without
greatly disfiguring the language, and the small
group of reformers think that a little more
pruning may not be fatal. We must confess that
we cling to the traditions of the past. "Thru"
doesn't look right, and THE EDUCATOR will strug-
gle on for awhile in the old way. Nevertheless
we admit that the arguments favor the proposed
changes. It is a question of custom and senti-
ment regarding a dozen words against a more
