The Kodak. The board of editors, mentioned in a previous issue of the MONTHLY, has surprised everybody by issuing one of the handsomest annuals ever published by a normal school or college in the West. It embraces everything that they promised in the prospectus and much more. The cuts are most superior in every way. There are about seven or eight hundred faces of alumni, faculty, seniors, and present students in the book, in addition to a fund of humorous sketches appropriate to the

The editors have been most fortunate in securing for their publishers Messrs. Perrin & Smith, of St. Louis, Missouri. This firm is one of the best in that enterprising city, and has taken great pains to make the Kodak a model of typographical art. The designs by J. W. Mayberry, C. L. Kelson, Ada Hogle, Kittie Fisher, Webb Long, and other well known Normal artists add greatly to the interest and value of the book. The sketches of the institution, of the alumni, and of the various organizations are happily written. A good judge assures us that the literary folio of thirty-five pages is not surpassed in any of the annuals issued elsewhere. We are pleased to see the names of D. S. Landis, Hattie Horner Louthan, D. A. Ellsworth, and other prominent Normal contributors in the list. The little gem by Frances Gillette, “Sleep, Baby, Sleep,” is most beautifully illustrated by Kittie M. Fisher. Some think it the artistic page of the entire book.

Nearly eight hundred copies of the Kodak have already been sold, but the editors ordered a sufficient number to meet the demands of those who may send in orders within a limited time. It is the most beautiful souvenir ever issued from the institution, and every copy ought to be sold by September 1. Send names, enclosing money order or draft for $1.25 to W. A. LaBar, Mankato, or direct to the office of the State Normal School.

IF ANY of our subscribers do not receive the supplement containing the rest of the minutes of the April meeting of the Child-Study Society and will write us, it will be sent by return mail.

At the Congress of Mothers in Washington, D. C., last spring, a resolution was unanimously adopted supporting the establishment of chairs of “Paidology,” or the "Science of the Child," in all universities and normal schools. Mrs. Bourland writes that these women believe, with Spencer, that “Whether as bearing upon the happiness of parents themselves, or whether as affecting the character and lives of their children and remote descendants, we must admit that a knowledge of the right methods of juvenile culture, physical, mental, is a knowledge second to none other in importance.”

We are in receipt of a number of handsome high school pro. grams. TI ks, one and all, -riends. Among them are pro. grams from Osborne, Wichita, Chapman, Marysville, Pleasanton, Emporia, Hutchinson, Caldwell, Ness City, Howard, Winfield, Nortonville, and Topeka. We also received class cards and programs from the State Agricultural College, the Oklahoma University, the Oklahoma Normal school, the high school at Muncie, Indiana, Howard University, Kansas Blind Institute, Kansas City, Kansas, Thomas County hig! school, Lawrence high school, Wallace, Idaho, Haskell Institute, and other institutions of learning in different parts of the country.

Professor SadIE L. MONTGOMERY closes her work with us at this commencement. She announces her intention of spending the coming year in advanced studies in some higher institution of learning. During the four years she has served as kindergartner, she has made hosts of friends among the little people as well as among the pupil teachers who have sat under her instruction. She possesses rare skill in her specialty and has exercised a wholesome influence over the primary work in many parts of our state. We regret to lose her from our number and trust that the change in work will result in the return of perfect health as well as in the realization of her long cherished plans.

A High Compliment. Our friends abroad are discovering the excellency of the State NORMAL MONTHLY, as well as the friends at home. Recently we published a paper on Hegel's Philosophy of History, by Miss Mary S. Taylor, of our faculty. Doctor Chrisman wrote to Commissioner Harris calling his attention to it, and was gratified to receive the following reply:

Your very kind letter of March 22nd came to hand duly. I had already read the article on Hegel's “Philosophy of History' by Miss Taylor, and had admired it very much. I think it is a very remarkable production and I am glad to know that the young lady undertook the work at your instigation. If she will work over Hegel's “Philosophy of History" once in two years, or once a year, (as I have done eighteen or twenty times,) I am sure she will agree with me in saying that the book has more ideas in it than any other book she has ever seen.

Very truly yours,

W. T. Harris, Commissioner.

Phllomathian Society. Success, hope, patriotism, and good cheer in society are doing much to make blue and white the popular spring colors. Many new students are finding a permanent home in the hall where these colors reign supreme, and old students are rallying around as if they had heard the bugle call. Miss Daisy Ott, better known as Parthenia, Messrs. Lockhart, Burnap, Griswold and Stewart are among those welcomed back.

The officers who will see that the high standing of society work is kept up during the next four weeks are Margret Turney, Z. E. Wyant, C. T. Rhinehart, C. W. Jones, Metta Johannes and Roy Rankin.

Mr. W. L. Dunbar and Miss Blanche Neiman have been chosen to take first and second place in the next oratorical contest. Mr. Thoroman has again received merited honor in being selected as the best parliamentarian of the school for the position of president of the interstate association.

He was formally elected at the executive meeting at Normal, Illinois. The Philomathians all will join in yelling, “Hurrah for St. Clair," and

"Rah! rah! rah! rip! rah! ren!
Unfold old gold, K. S. N.”

The following reports from the alumni show where “Old Gold” will wave: W. S. Picken, '87, superintendent city schools, Burlingame; A. C. Wheeler, '97, superintendent schools, Garden City; Miss Nettie Barber, '98, teacher city schools, Halstead, Kansas.

The next school year begins September 6.

and the best. Victor Serenus. A story of the Pauline Era; By Henry Wood

12mo. Cloth: 500 pages. Lee & Shepard, publishers, Boston

1 50 The scene is located in that very dramatic period of the world's history,the Pauline era, and through graphic character delineation deals with the thought, customs, and relig. ous systems of that time. Its aim is to draw a true and well-proportioned picture of the actual conditions, avoiding an overdrawn and debasing realism, so often employed for the sake of exaggerated contrasts. With un. important exceptions, Paul is the only his. toric character, and those who have been privileged to read the advance sheets are of the opinion that the various dramatic and psychological situations which are depicted during his unique development are remarkable. Victor Serenus, and the other leading personalities that are emploved, are representative creations. While the historic framework is carefully preserved, there is a range of the fancy and imagination in the movenient, and a wealth of mystical, psy. chical, and wierd phenomena deftly woven into the fabric for the story. Love, adventure, romance, idealism, and magic are han. dled in action to combine entertainment, in

struction, and profit. Here and There and Everywhere. Reminis.
