Figure In my institute work I attempt to be entirely practical. I offer no puzzling psychological theories; but try to present the well-established principles of mind developement in plain language. In talking to teachers I speak from a continuous experience of twenty five years as teacher, County Superintendent and City Superintendent. While my methods are, I think, up-to-date, I offer nothing that may not be used by any progressive teacher. My aim in institute work is not alone to give instruction in methods of teaching; but to arouse a professional spirit among teachers, and a progressive spirit in the community. Popular lectures of evenings if desired. Please write me for terms and dates. Very truly yours, M. A. CASSIDY, Supt. of Schools, Lexington, Ky. TESTIMONIALS. SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION J. H. FUQUA, SR. FRANKFORT, KENTUCKY December 3, 1906. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:— It affords me peculiar pleasure to bear testimony to Prof. M. A. Cassidy, as a scholar, a teacher, a superintendent and an Institute Conductor. I regard him as one of the best equipped school men in the state. He is energetic and very practical in all his work. I think he is the peer of any Institute Conductor in the state, and were I called upon to recommend one for such work, I should certainly select him. Should you employ Prof. Cassidy, you will make no mistake. Very truly, JAS. H. FUQUA, SR. ASHLAND PUBLIC SCHOOLS J. C. CRABBE, SUPERINTENDENT ASHLAND, KY. December 4, 1006. I have known Superintendent M. A. Cassidy, of the Lexington Public Schools, for a number of years. It gives me pleasure to commend him as a school man of more than usual ability, of the different sort, who knows things, and who moreover brings things to pass. He is an excellent institute worker, inspiring and energizing, and is worthy the attention of any in search of instructor or lecturer. Respectfully submitted. J. G. GRABBE, Superintendent. M. L. CHOWNING, SUPERINTENDENT ANDERSON COUNTY SCHOOLS. Lawrenceburg, Ky., December 5, 1906. TO WHOM CONCERNED:— Supt. M. A. Cassidy, of Lexington, Ky., has been with us at three Institutes and my teachers regard him as an enthusiastic worker and have found him both entertaining and practical. I most heartily recommend him. Very respectfully, M. L. CHOWNING, Supt. of Anderson County, Ky., Schools. C. C. ADAMS, SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS, Williamstown, Ky., December 8, '06 Prof. M. A. Cassidy has instructed the teachers of this county on three successive occasions and with increasing popularity each time. As an instructor he speaks from the fullness of his experience and not as a mere theorist. He is an eminently efficient teacher of teacher of teachers and he presents his work to them in an interesting, encouraging, practical and pleasing manner. In his addresses to teachers he appeals to them in his own enthusiastic manner and does not shoot over their heads. He arouses new life in all of the teachers, inspires the ambitious and awakens the sleepiest. I cheerfully recommend him as a most excellent, practical and enthusiastic instructor and will vouch for the success of any teachers' institute or association which chooses him for its leader. C. C. ADAMS, Supt. Grant County Schools, Ky. LOUISVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. E. H. MARK, SUPERINTENDENT. LOUISVILLE, KY. Louisville, Ky., December 3, 1906. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:— It gives me great pleasure to testify to the worth of Supt. M. A. Cassidy as a school man. While I have never personally seen him instruct teachers, my knowledge of him is such as to lead me to believe that he would make an excellent institute instructor. He is well equipped for work of that character and I am sure would arouse great enthusiasm in a body of teachers. E. H. MARK, Supt. Public Schools. W. H. CHAMBERS, SUPT. SCHOOLS, Campton, Ky., December 4, 1906. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:— I take pleasure in saying that Prof. M. A. Cassidy is one of the ablest institute instructors I have ever known. Desiring to have a successful institute in Wolfe County in 1906 I employed him as instructor, and we had the best meeting of the kind ever held in this County. In fact, in an institute, he is the right man in the right place. No superintendent can made a mistake in employing him. He is so practical that his work can be put use by the teachers without difficulty, and he inspires them to do it, too. Respectfully, W. H. CHAMBERS, Supt. Wolfe County. J. W. REILEY COUNTY SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS Alexandria, Ky., December 8, 1906. Prof. M. A. Cassidy, of the Lexington City Schools, conducted our Institute this year, and did us good work. One of the strong features of his work, is its practical character. He presents material and methods, which can be applied by the Teacher of the one room school. I cheerfully recommend him, as being thoroughly familiar with the needs of our Public Schools, and fully qualified to do effective Institute work. J. W. REILEY, Campbell Co., Superintendent. FRANKLIN COUNTY SCHOOLS, E. R. JONES, SUPERINTENDENT. Frankfort, Ky., December 10, 1906. It has been my pleasure to be present during the entire session of several institutes instructed by Supt. M. A. Cassidy of the Lexington City Schools. I regard Prof. Cassidy as one of the most successful, up-to-date institute instructors in the state. He has splendid scholarly attainments, which, considered with his pleasing address, his experience as teacher, county superintendent, and city superintendent for more than 25 years renders him peculiarly fitted for this important work. Possibly no man in the state has done more for popular education than he. He has a deep and abiding interest in the up-building of the country schools, being well acquainted with their condition and needs. His service as instructor deals largely with this phase of the work. E. R. JONES, Supt. Franklin Co., Schools. I. D. MITCHELL, SUPT. TRIMBLE COUNTY. Bedford, Ky., December 10, 1906. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:— It gives me pleasure to commend to the educational public Prof. M. A. Cassidy of Lexington, Kentucky, as an able, earnest, and zealous instructor. He conducted the Institute in Trimble County two years, and I can say without hesitation that his work was entirely satisfactory to me and to my teachers. We have had many able men to instruct Institutes for this county, but have never had a man whose work was more universally approved. I do not fear to say that he will give satisfaction to any Superintendent and intelligent body of teachers. I. D. MITCHELL, Co. Supt., Trimble Co., Ky.
