Some congregations have ruined; ministers by harrassing tl'crv until they lost heart and self-con- trol and became peevish and ill tempered.

She whispered also that her father had reason to suspect the padres Julian and Sebaitiano of using their influ- ence against him in Manila. For a mo* stent or two I had a suspicion that ahe and the gobernador might be under the padre's influence and trying to work themselves into my confidence with the intention of betraying me afterward. But the more I thought of this the more improbable it teemed.

MMX. Wm- W?i- g¡¡£, ÜÍ intendent of instruction at Aus- tin couldn't possibly hurt our school system and might do it a great deal of good. If you don't believe this, ask for a copy of the Siehmond Coaster. At the recent teacher* conven- tion in Kort Worth Professor Butte, of Sulphur Springs, almost stunned some of his co-workers by stating that the rural public schools of Texas were huge and brilliant failures. The text of the gentleman's truthful talk is not at hand, neither is a photo- graph of his hearers' feelings, but they were no doubt very in- teresting to those persons who have noted the quality of peda- gogic inability that is bleeding the Texas school fund and there- by depriving some gravel pit of a class of labor to which it is rightfully entitled. It seems that when some men who were designed by nature to transport a mortar hod between terra firma and the top of a building get a little schooling, they are forever ruined, and thereafter will never be content until they g...
