and incisive insight into his work and his quiet but effective manner of enforcing it wins him friends. He is always ably assisted by his wife, a successful teacher and a ripe scholar.

Superintendent Edwin S. Monroe's re-election in Mount Vernon was for a term of two years, and not one as announced in the Journal. The school board of this city has recently entered into a contract with a firm to renovate the walls and ceilings of two school buildings, with especial attention to artistic decoration. When completed the rooms will be the peers of any in the State from an artistic standpoint.

Mr. James E. Jones, who for a number of years has been principal of the Central Building, the largest ward school in Mount Vernon, has resigned his position and will become a candidate for trustee of his township. Mr. Jones is a very successful teacher and possesses all the qualifications necessary for a good township trustee. Mr. Ralph W. French, a graduate from the State University, has been appointed to succeed Mr. Jones.

Prof. Edward G. Bauman has accepted the principalship of the Mount Vernon high school for the ensuing year. He had been re-elected to the position he held last year, principal of the Trinidad (Colorado) high school, but on account of the health of his family, which was not good because of the high altitude oi that part of Colorado in which he was located, decided to return to Indiana. Prior to going west Professor Bauman had for five years been principal of the Mount Vernon high school, and his return to his old position at an increased salary indicates the esteem in which he is held in his old home. He is one of Indiana's best high school men.

C. E. Shimp, of Andrews, has been elected superintendent of schools at Bowling Green, Ohio, and has accepted. His work a' Indrews has been vigorous, especially in strengthening the high school course and in bringing into it many new students. It is universally conceded that the work in these schools for the past few years has been of the best, and Mr. Shimp goes to his new field of labor with the best wishes of a large circle of the good people at Andrews.

W. H. Hershman is the new president of Vincennes University. His selection was made after a careful and complete inquiry into his fitness for the place and was unanimous. This journal feels that he will prove a valuable man in this new phase of educational work. His daughter, Ara, who taught in the schools of Indianapolis last year, will be one of his teachers in the university. The university will find Mr. Hershman all that he has been represented to be.

Wm. F. M. Goss, for a number of years a senior member of the faculty of Purdue University, was recently made dean of the school of engireering. As such he will have full supervision of the departments of mechanical, civil and electrical engineering. Professor Goss is extremely popular at the university and is recognized as an authority in all parts of the United States. His promotion came as a surprise to him. He was born in Barnstable, Mass., in 1859, and is now professor of experimental engineering and director of laboratories. His appoint. ment as instructor in mechanical arts dates back to 1879, when he came to Purdue from a two-year's course at the Boston institute of technology, where he completed the me. chanical arts course. During the first ten years at Purdue he was identified with the development of the shops. The last ten years were spent in the development of advanced work along mechanical lines. When Le went to Purdue he found the mechanical department in the basement of one of the buildings, and he had no tools with which to work. To-day the big mechanical laboratory stands to show for the progress he has made. In 1889 he was granted a year's leave of absence, spending that time in Europe, perfecting himself.

E. L. Hendricks will continue at Mitchell, his work having been exceptionally well planned and executed. As a county superintendent Mr. Hendricks easily ranked among the foremost and it is equally so with the city superintendents. He has a clear

VIA PENNSYLVANIA LINES. The dates for the low rate excursion to Northern Michigan via Pennsylvania Lines are August 30th, September 6th and 8th. On those dates excursion tickets to Traverse City, Petoskey and Mackinac Island may be obtained. The return limit will include thirty days from date on which tickets are sold.

This will be an excellent opportunity for an outing in Northern Michigan. Fishing will be at its best; the hunting season will be open, and the pure air will be invigorating and healthful, while the lakes and woodland will be especially attractive.

Round trip rate from Indianapolis will be $10 to Traverse City or Petoskey, and $11 to Mackinac Island. Corresponding low rates will be in effect from other ticket stations on the Pennsylvania Lines. For details apply to W. W. Richardson, District Passenger Agent, Indianapolis.

INDIANA CENTENNIAL BOOK OF PORTRAITS. The Indiana Printing and Manufacturing Company, of Indianapolis, is preparing a book of portraits of Indiana people, which will be interesting and of great value to everyone who is so fortunate as to secure a place therein. It will contain a majority of the school officers of the State and a great many teachers. An effort will be made to place a copy in every school library in the State. It will help everyone to know and be known and will thus increase one's acquaintance a thousand fold. This is the State's centennial year, and this will give the book an historical value, which will guarantee its preservation for many years to come. It is certainly one of the books which should outlive the coming century. The Company designs that it will be a monument to their art of fine printing and of the printing of the period.

The price for engraving portrait and for a copy of the book complete has been fixed at five dollars, which is about one-half the price which it has been necessary to charge heretofore. This greatly reduced cost comes from improvements recently made in the production of half-tones. As the teacher has few methods of bringing himself or herself before the public, this will be a great opportunity.

Write the Company at 33 S. Meridian Street.


PENNSYLVANIA LINES. July 17th to August 13th, inclusive, Excursion tickets will be sold account "Bethany Assembly" at Bethany Park, Ind., via Pennsylvania Lines; good returning until August 15th. Every day during the Assembly a special program of exercises is offered, in which talented men and women are specialists.

TEACHERS LOOK AHEAD. And this shows wisdom and enterprise. This is what successful men do from the first to the last. By a careful look forward and a zealous preparation each got his start and won his victories.

The wide-a wake teacher, intending to succeed, is planning for something more profitable and satisfactory. This is wise. It is necessary, and the sooner he decides, the greater and more certain his ultimate achievements in life. The

greatest financial prospects are opened in such admirable business preparation as can be had at the Indianapolis Business University. Its half century of thorough work, its honorable history, wide influence and patronage give it prestige and enable its management to help its students to the best paying positions. It pays, and a

Over the burning marl; not like those steps
On heaven's azure; and the torrid clime
Smote on him sore besides, vaulted with fire.
