Let me but do my work from day to day,

In field or forest, at the desk or loom,
In the roaring market-place or tranquil room;
Let me but find it in my heart to say,
When vagrant wishes beckon me astray:
'This is my work; my blessing, not my doom;
Of all who live, I am the one by whom
This work can best be done in the right way"
Then shall I see it not too great, nor small,
To suit my spirit and to prove my powers;
Then shall I cheerful greet the labouring hours,
And cheerful turn, when the long shadows fall
At eventide, to play and love and rest

Because I know for me my work is best.

Editorial Comment



Facing the new year with confidence and pleasure, we give all our readers good morrow! The successes of the past year justify the expectation that the coming year will be one of useful activity. The year 1910 witnessed a big step forward in the development of a spirit of cheerful co-operation among the teachers of California. This forward step was registered in the organization of the California Council of Education at Fresno in March. With commendable energy, this body of representative school men and women has taken intelligent hold of several educational problems of state-wide importance. It is safe to say that the Council has solved the basic problem of securing a greater California Teachers' Association. With the approval of the Central California Teachers' Association next March, the new incorporation covering the entire State will take effect on the first day of October.

Thus we have reason to face the new year with lively anticipation of good things educationally. With a genuine union firmly established, we may confidently expect the gradual mastery of all educational problems requiring state-wide co-operation. It is the highest ambition of the SIERRA EDUCATIONAL NEWS to assist in the good work, to advance the interests of its owners-the teachers of California. May we all have a good year together!
