He believed In the constitution of his state and his nation and in the fundamental and long established principles of law. He believed above all else in orderly and progressive development In matters of law and In the principles of government. He kept constantly before his mind the principle that stability and orderly development and progress In a state are the things most to be desired. He believed that the law should be so declared and adhered to by the courts that every person could safely rely thereon in hla personal conduct and business transactions. '· Was a Born Student. "Aa ct lawyer he was known for the remarkable--diligence--with which he looked after the Interests of his clients. Ho was a born student and accordingly familiar with precedents, but he always developed them Into principles, and he followed the spirit and trend of the c.ujes rather than their literal content. IIv brought to the service of the .stato as a Supreme court judge this thorough equipment, together with a habit of hard work and thoroughness and the highest Integrity and a profoundly,, conscientious deaire to administer exact justice His service on the supreme bench was a service of can- st ant and tireless Industry and has rarely, If ever, been excelled, M Is shown In the reported cases during hla term from 1900 to 191B. "His work as a Supreme court Judge was one of marked credit to himself and to his profession. His opinions on questions of public Importance,, won wide and favorabje comment. He wrote the -opinion of the court In many castes of great Importance and far-reaching effect. "Mr Myers liked the law and delighted in It It was his master. Kind, but courageous, he lived up to the highest Ideals of his profession. "Happy the state that has no servants but such as he.

Bureau Collects Information. The magazine Is the official organ of the United Stated bureau of education. The principal function of the bureau is to collect information as to educational progress and disseminate It among school men and women throughout the country. In the bureau's early years It published little besides an annual report vt formidable proportions, but ?y. . _ - _ _ _ u . . _ _ . . 4 . *Vm4 VI0 mtluntJUi o r t »f f o r m a e p r o p o r o , It became apparent that big volumes sBuedat long Intervale did not meet the need of American school people, who are not satisfied to wait a year for their lnformatton.--The practice arose, therefore, of Msulng "ofrculars of Information" and "bulletins," which usually consisted of monographs of nsiderable extent. , These added Rink loak House extendir thanks and wishing our patron* ail--health, prosperity and a "Conameraoio ti*.ioi»i., , *..»«« -TM^~-- greStly to the usefulness of the bureau, but they did not nil the demand for up-to-date Information of Important movement* and events Brief leaflets were issued, therefore, when occasion required, and theao In turn were supplemented* later by mimeographed circulars, which could be prepared oulckly and Issued frequently. AU these methods of diffusing information have been continued by the new commissioner. They do not, hbwever, either singly or in the aggregate, completely meet the demand, according to Commissioner Tlgert. A method is re- oulred of collecting Information systematically and of publishing it regularly, frequently, economically. The publication has proved to be of great use to educators and It Is In auoh demand that the free edition of 40.000 Is Insufficient, Dr. Tlgert stated. It has been necessary to establish a subscription list and the superintendent of documents sends the publicatlo'n regularly to those who pay 30 cents a year, which is the actual cost of printing from stereotype plates. The mlmcosraphed leaflets that for morly came from, the bureau of educa tlon by tho millions have almost en tlrely ceased since School I.,lfe has been issued, and the printed leaflets havr been ereatly reduced In number. Thi periodical covers tho ground far more effectively and economically. Its cost Is actually less than that of other forms of distribution and it presents a more pleasing appearance and bears an aspec of permanence which the mimeographed material lacks.
