CADETS TO SAN ANTONIO
Houston Boys Will Drill With the
Peacock and San Antonio High
School Boys at the Fair.
The High School Cadets and the High
school football team will appear as at-
tractions at the San Antonio fair next
Saturday. The cadets will drill In an
exhibition drill with the cadets of Pea-
cock s school and the football team will
contest on the gridiron with the San An-
tonio high school's team.
Major Drure commandant of the cadets
stated last night that every preparation
has beeirtiiade for the trip and the boys
will straw to splendid advantage In their
new khaki uniforms on the drill
grounds. They will leave here Friday
night and will be entertained at the Pea-
cook school lor boys during their stay in
.San Antonio having been Invited by Prof.
Peacock himself. . y
Ho far as is known the Houston cadets
are the only military organization In con-
nection with a city public school In Texas.'
The organization was formed about a
year ago with about forty boys and now
iherr are seventy-five in the body. There
urc two companies company A with W.
T. main as captain and company B with
Raphael .Simon as captain. The boys rre
now engaged in raising money for their
new rifles. Sprlngfeld model which wlll(
sdon arrive here.
At the Prince.
The bill at the Prince theater Tuesday
afternoon and evening was the Dandy
Dixie minstrels an organisation of col-
ored performers headed by the old-time
minstrel. Billy Kersands. The company
as a whole gave very good satisfaction
but Is hardly intended for a city the size
of Houston except possibly in its ap-
peal to the members of its own race.
Hilly Kersands. always a mediocre per-
former when nompared to the other min-
strel men of the day. is doing practical-
ly the same stunts that he did in days of
yore when he headed the Georgia min-
strels and later a company of his own.
His dance steps are odd and by far the
belter part of his performance.
There are a number of good voices in
the- company but these are of the un-
trained sort and often grate on the nerves
in the prettiest part of a mejody. The
roinedy Fingers show off to better ad-
vantage because leas Is .expected of them.
In the olio the Dixie Range quartette
was easily the most prominent feature.

bicyclist have .n seen here before and

The Majestic in its initial bill of the
season offers eight acts of good quali-

mous Fords styled "America's astound-

packing boxes straight Jackets insane
rest ralnt rots and most any t nine else
thai can be produced. Miss Ford is the
tirM lady e.-cape artist to appear in
Hastings and Wilson "the two luna-
tics" have a rough and tumble act that
goes with a rush from start to finish.
Some funny acrobatic Btunta and a bur-
lesque on melodrama are among the
most enjoyable features.
Ka and Rockwell are roller skate
dancers Mi.ss Fyvie Dench is a contral-
to. Charles Hughes and his singing girl
present a sketch entitled "The Walter

time is In Itself remarkable. The feat
will he performed only once this week.
At the Bijou.
Another good sized crowd was present
last night at the Bijou to witness the
Haileys Stock company's production of
"The Wheel of Justice."
The work of remodeling the theater is
bemn rapidly pushed forward and it is
t onfhlently expected that the new ton

Nellie Parker Is doing well at the Ai-

In case of failure or Inability to make
this selection for themselves the superin-
tendent will be glad to appoint the rep-
resentative. For the first Institute meet-
ing the teachers of the Rusk school are
asked to be responsible for the questions
on chapter 1; those of the Lubbock for
the questions on chapter 2 and those of
the Austin for questions on chapter 3.
The teachers of all other buildings should
also be prepared and ready to engage In
general discussion on any of these.
DR. O'SHEA'S L.BTTER.
Mr. Horn received a letter this week
from the author of the book and the let-
ter Is Interesting for the suggestions It
makes relative to the matters treated In
the book. Dr. O'Shea's letter Is as fol-
lows: Superintendent P. W. Horn Houston.
Madison October 1. Dear Superintend-
ent Horn: I am much Interested to learn
that you will use my Education as Ad-
iustment with your teachers. I hope you
isve been able to secure the edition
which contains a set of questions and
exercises on each chapter. 1 have found
In working with the book that ths dis-
cussions based on these questions and
original problems have always been very
suggestive and helpful. I have used It
with a good many teachers and It has
been ma custom to ask one teacher to be
responsible for one group of quest rns
and then throw the whole matter open
Would you be able to use a list of
parallel readings If I should send one? I
will not burden you with suon a list now.
but would bladly send it It you can find
It of any service.
Perhaps I may suggest that I think the
thought to be dwelt upon Irs part 1 of the
text Is the Influence of preconception and
lirejudice upon our educational beflefs.
I think It would be profitable to take a
great many very concrete theories about
teaching and see how a group of teach-
ers will differ in their views respecting
them because of the peculiar experience
or training they have had. Such a dis-
cussion. If It is made very concrete
should serve to put teachers In a recep-
tive frame of mind for later study. It
should cause those teachers who feel
they have settled all the problems of
teaching to be modest m their expres-
sions and to be willing to consider other
points of view.
In part 2 the essential principles to be
developed is that all our mental pro-
cesses occur for the purpose of helping
us to deal effectively with our environ-
ments. The supreme aim of every In-
dividual In this life is to adapt himself
most happily to people to nature and
to the Intellectual and aesthetic world
alout him. I have found that teachers
are much Interested In the development
of this subject. If It Is made very con-
crete by using a wealth of familiar Il-
lustrations. I have found It profitable to
have an individual analyze his actions to
find out the motive behind each and all
of them and always carry' the matter
to the real and not the apparent motive.
In part 8 the essential point to be made
Is that the mind is so constituted that
perception memory reason and all Its
other processes depend wholly upon ex-
perience and not upon mere formal train-
ing. I think this la the most important
conception a teacher can get bold of.
'I do not know that you have seen my
'Dynamic Factors In Education but this
conception is worked out ver practically
In that book
As 1 go on during the year I will be
glad to send you suggestions. If any occur
to me. which mlylit be of service to you.
Very truly yours. M V. O'Shea.

way you conduct your Institutes. I have
