Seerley, of the School at Iowa Falls, and Others in Favor of It. Sioux City Jouanal. The need of another normal school iii Iowa, and particularly in western Iowa, has been the subject of many an animated conversation among the educators who have been attending the sessions of the Northwestern Iowa Teachers association. Without An exception, they accord the western portion of the state the right to demand a new educational establishment. Recognizing, as they do, that eastern Iowa has received favorable legislation in the location of the larger part of the state asylums, prisons and schools they admit that now western Iowa may ask and be given the next normal school •which may be established. A Journal reporter talked with, a number of prominent educators as they were gathered in the lobby of the Garretson, and some valuable suggestions as to methods of procedure were given. State 'Superintendent of Schools Sabin aptly remarked: "When the normal school question was agitat; ed three years ago in the' legislature everything was favorable to the building of a new school. The sentiments among the lawmakers seemed prop!' tious, but the towns which wanted the school were each so anxious to secure the prize that the bill failed through lack of unity regarding a site. Yes,' it seems that Iowa has not done all it could to secure a school for the training of professional teachers. Minnesota •has four normal schools and will have • more, Wisconsin has three and other states are in like advance. It would seem that western Iowa was the place as the east is well provided with educational institutions. The normal school at Cedar Falls is overcrowded, with studunts. "I-believe that the site for the school lion question entirely out of politics. Iowa is just passing through a stage of political dictation in the government of the various institutions. I believe that some sort of professional training should be giv n to the Country school teacher. It may be a modest school »t each county seat or principal town, but the influence of good instruction will tell with remarkable effect upon our district schools. They ate not what they should be and the lack of properly trained teachers I believe to be the cause. After the county school should come the normal school, and our state institutions should be svtch that their graduates would rank with those of any other state. It would seem that western Iowa should have a normal school. Several towns, LeMars for instance, stand ready to denote a large building on a valuable site, and one of these offers'should be accepted and a school founded." MARBLEIZED GYPSUM. Jewelery Dept.

The Fort Dodge Messenger says: Some days ago mention was made in these columns of gentlemen who were here to promote the establishment of an industry for the preparation of gypsum for the market without grinding. Samples of this finished product from this process are now to be seen at Berryhill's news stand, and command admiration for their beauty. This process is unlike all others in that it preserves the native beauty of the gyps'tm. It is not ground and cast, but the original gypsum is,treated by a chemical process which fills all the pores and makes it'solid and durable. It has been tested by experts who certify that after this treatment it absorbs less water than the hardest burned brick, and stands a crushing strain which qualifies it for buildidg purposes. It is claimed for this process that it will put gypsum on the market for far less than the price of marble and that tliis gypsum will be a complete substitute for marble for wainscoting, and all the inside finish for which there ia •.i great demand in the large cities. Tlie inventor is a Berlin man, and has already established a factory in that country. He came to Chicago where,he, has friends,,'and ' through , ,them 13 What they 'all say must be; that we have the largest stocfe to b$ fcmn<J in the westi no pld stoote; aUii©w and j$ pur , eapft W99 k who. hay© from us'.'- Why not, at B ...... j. the sjuhodl should hfeve ^pie^jpportunity to inake offers of sited, buildings, etc.," arid, these offers should be considered and the-best v and most suitable site selected. A, school in western Iowa would bring up'the .tone of instruction wonderfully. "While conditions and times -are changed and; appropriations may have to be curtailed; the 'next legislature should have an ppportunity to make an appropriation commensurate with the needs of this portion of'the state, but if the site cannot be selected, what is the use of legislation?"President H. H. See'rley, of'the Iowa State Normal school at Cedar Falls, was enthusiastic upon the question and advocated in all frankness the establishment of another school. - u While it has of ten been said that we,, are overcrowded at Cedar Falls, the school has been doing, l as we believe, most excellent work," said he. "This year • there has been enrolled more than 1,000 stu-, dents, and a class of 130 will graduate in June: To'show how thetown bener fits by,the school, I can say" that $150,000 is left annually by students and those who are there by, reason of the institution.- That is qu'ite<an income of itself. Yes, the legislature has been very generous with us and we have no reason to complain, But it is true that Iowa, as one of the foremost 'states of the union in educational advantage should have another normal school and it should-be .in the western -portipn. The reason is plain when 'one'considers that those in the east are convenient to the large.schools of Illinois and particularly Chicago, This portion of the state sends- annually to Cedar Falls more students than any other part, That shows the peed in concise form. "• 'How would the site be chosen and, the appointment made?' That is an easy question, but perhaps one difficult to answer, The Pennsylvania law is a splendid one'to apply to the present situation in Iowa, o Juet a pro rata tax bill be passed by legislative action, Suppose it was pne-tentb of a mill. That is move than .our school,at, Cedar Falls needs, Then let; fte towns wish* ing the site come forward, with'the - repositions and t&e JpoaWQn either be a commission oi we board- pf jo charge of " ,, r definitely; He does not ask any; money has demonstrated that he can mate out' of Ft. Dodge gypsum just such materials as this on exhibition, It is 'likely that a half interest in the right to the United States could be obtained 'and the' industry located here on terms .which would give him bis payment nearly all in stock in the company'. A. proposition of this kind from him is a guarantee of his'faith in the project, 'and very different from an attempt to , sell out and clean up in cash.. , .There is no doubt that Ft.Dodge'has great wealth in her gypsum, and it'be- hooves us to be on the'lookout for every means to profitably extend its use. We believe our people shqiild examine these specimens and' investigate Mr, Beyanba'ch's proposjtipn.
