100 years ago: Humane Society proposes school curriculum

July 18, 2011


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for July 18, 1911:

  • “The Lawrence Humane Society is making an effort to have the work of the society taken up in the schools over the state and to have humane education taught in the schools. With this end in view John Ise, Lawrence humane officer, has been out of town for several days to see what can be done in this direction.... The first step to be taken is the posting of the ‘Horse’s Prayer’ in all the school buildings where it can be read by the pupils. Then, when there will be no regular text book for the course, the students will be provided with the National Humane magazine, ‘Our Dumb Animals.’ Aside from this the society will furnish the schools with considerable other humane literature which they will be expected to read and study.”
  • [Advertisement] “‘What a Relief!’ Only the woman who has tried knows what comfort and relief a New Perfection Oil Cook-stove brings into the kitchen. It is not only that the New Perfection cooks so well. It saves so much work in other ways. There are no ashes to clean up before going to bed; no fire to bank for the night. Everything is ready for cooking in the morning at a touch of a match. You are saved from an overheated kitchen; saved from soot and dirt; saved from chopping wood and carrying coal.”
