Mention has been made in the Sentinel heretofore of the consolidation of three of Michigan's prominent railroads, The Flint & Pere Marquette, Detroit. Grand Rapids & Western and Chicago & West Michigan.

Hazledlne. iHext Monday bhe welcome sound of the school bell will gladden the hearts t»f millions all over our land. Mothers wbo have many t.mes wished school would soon commence that they might send a half dozen youngsters to school for the teacher to care for will sigh a sigh of relief as she sees them trudging down the road, carrying dinnei pails,'an armful of books ancl heads cram full of thots, which when c-evel- oped Into actions, will cause the teacher to utter just such a sigh at four o'clock when tbey are homeward bound as the mother did when she saw them trudging toward school in the morning, | SCHOOL DEPARTMENT J 9>*<^(J5-<^©,<_»©<^©Q-*y©-4^©'*>-®-«->-© Our public schools will resume work Monday September 4V and It is very desirable that all pupils be on band the very,first day to facilitate the formation of classes and to give each one a chance to start out abreast with all ■his classes. The present management desires the earnest cooperation of parents and' pupils in bringing our schools upcothe greatest possible degree of efficiency. All the teachers will he, glad to have parents consult with, them as to the children's best interests, If the child is to be given a fair jbance for his future the Influences of his home and school room must be supplementary to each other. We ask for punctuality and regularity of attendance not only on account of the general spirit they Import to school oreanlzaMou but also on account of their reactive effect for strength and steadfastness of character upon the individual pupil. Nothing can take the place of steady pei- sistant effort continued bbruout the entiie school year. After being absent a pupil is under the necessity of doing harder work If he is to keep up with his classmates. Even then a sensitive child goes to his classes under great nervous strain in the fear of failure. This may lend to nervous diseases of which so much Is said in our rood<>nitcivilization. To the child spasmodic mental effort is far more hnrmful than a reasonable amount of regular study. Some parents are debating whether or not to'send their larger boys and girls back to school. Allow me to ask .\ou to run over in your mind the after life of those v/ho have gone on thru school as compared with those who dropped out all the way along up tbe grades. A comparison of tbe later" life t f these two classes of young people may help you to reach a decision. No amount of training can make a Shetland pony attain a two-minute gait and it takes a great deal of training to bring even our blooded horses up to that rate of speed. Like wise no amount of education can change a two-cent individual over to a two- thousand dollar man. Education increases the mental size, hot the sort of human being. Training does bring results and lo dealing with the human soul tbe results are marvelous. 1 have been ordered by those in au- thority'to say tbat beginners will be admitted only at the beginning of the school year. The reason for this Is ob- vious.J One year is sufficient for the average pupil to pass a grade, arid it usually takes a whole year. Along in the winter or spring if a number of beginners enter tbey demand the attention of the teacher, and this, too, at the expense of ber regular class. At (.he end of the year he cannot pass to the next grade, not having attended •a sufficient length of time, and the next year he is classed with beginners and becomes dissatisfied, I shall be at the high school Saturday irom 2:00 to 4:00 p. m. to-meet any who may wish to consult me aa to school matters.

Tbe Ann Arbor railroad is indeed having its share of wrecks these days. Saturday morning two freight trains were coming from thenorth, and wben Hearing Clare the first section stopped. The second section not understanding the first to stop, did not slack down, thus causing a rear-end collision which proved an expensive one to tbe company. The way car was smashed to splinters and three other cars badly demolished, while the head of the engine, was badly disfigured. The engineer and fireman escaped injury by jumping and as the way car had, no occupants, no one was injured. One passenger train was run over the F, & P. M. railroad from Farwell and a track was built around the wreck, thu3 causing little delay In the fcratfb. Airs, Lloyd Smith.
