Announcement * NEVADA—Miss Lucile Douglass, county superintendent of schools, wishes to announce that all teachers who ordered copies of the Course of Study for Ell- mentary Schools may get (hero now at her office in the courthouse here. There are somt library books ready for distribution to sll rural schools. If the teachers will call at the superintendent's office. Miss Douglass wll bo jtlart to give (hern out. sort of efficiency. Whatever your peculiar calling, your expertness is more telling it it- rests upon a basis of general culure. As a stenographer you will do better work and your chances of advancement are much greater if you are familiar with history, know your Shakespeare, and are not in doubt as to whether Botticelli is "the name of a cheese or a violin." As a lawyer, doctor, or preacher, your reputation will very likely rest as much upon your "all aroundness." your wide acquaintance with the inside of great books, and the general Impression that you are not a narrow-minded specialist, as it will upon you*, technical finish. Culture means intellectual background. It means accumulated" force behind .your stroke. • It means that you are not only' capable yourself, but that you know how to absorb and use the capability of wiser persons. It gives you perspective. It increases your personality. It strengthens your influence. It keeps you from settling down to become a mere cog in the wheel, a little specialized,piece of machinery to do a certain task, and makes you a Human Being, alive, vibrant, radiating. It. makes you Somebody, not just Anybody. Many a mother has realized too ate that she has no hold upon her :hildren because of her lack of tnowledge. They have grown up, and gotten away from her. Many a man has risen in the business world only to be humiliated j because he has neglected to ac-1 quire that education which alone would qualify him to mingle on 'erms of equality with well-inform;d people In fact, no man or woman who ias neglected an education does not bitterly regret it sooner or later And no living person was ever sorry that he had secured an education. : There never was an age in the history of the world when it was so true as it is now thaf "Knowledge is open to Everybody. Its gates are unlocked, its door is unlatched, its road is as free as the king's highway. The only things that prevent any person from acquiring useful knowledge are laziness, self-indulgence, weakness, and procrastination. Even if you did not get a chance to go to school, or if you failed to improve your opportunity when young, you can still set out upon the royal road to Education if you have the will. And even in the case of those who are college graduates, the Jest part of their education Is got- 'en from their studies in the ten years after leaving school.
