At a meeting of Southern Educational Association following: One of the most charming features of the evening was the story told by Miss Mary Myers. Miss Myers earned a justly deserved reputation as one of the cleverest members of her delightful profession.— The Nashville Tennessean. The Story Telling at the summer school of Mount Union College closed Friday evening, which has been conducted by Miss Myers, of Tennessee. Miss Myers possesses the rare achievement of successful story telling. She has made a host of friends, and will always be welcome at the college.— Alliance Daily Review. The Story Tellers' League met at the Carnegie Library Saturday. Miss Myers gave in a masterly way a Norse legend. She gave it with a dramatic power that commanded absolute attention.— Nashville Banner. I like to commend people when I can do it without hesitation. This is the way I feel about Miss Mary Humphreys Myers, the teller of stories. She was invited to Bay View last summer to conduct the Children's Story Hour, and before her enagement was half over, her hour had become one of the most popular at Bay View. I often saw her surrounded by fifty or sixty children, and what a beautiful sight it was! They climbed upon her table, stood as close to her as they could, and cheered or wept as the case might be as she related both new and old favorite stories. I almost envied her; she was the most admired person in the children's world. Her praises had preceded her from colleges and towns where she had met both children and grown-ups, and revealed to them the power of a story. She met expectations, and made good. JOHN M. HALL, President Bay View Association. Bay View, Mich. Department of Public Instruction, State of Tennessee. Miss Mary Myers is, in my opinion, one of the best instructors in Tennessee. Her institute work has been entirely satisfactory, and while I regard her as thoroughly competent in all public school branches, she is especially an expert in story telling and composition work. Miss Myers is cultured and refined. I can most highly commend her for any work along her particular line. SEYMORE A. MYNDERS, State Supt. Pub. Instruction. One of the most pleasing and helpful departments of the summer school of Mt. Union College was the work in story telling, conducted by Miss Mary H. Myers, of Nashville, Tenn. Each recitation grew in interest and popularity. The work included not only the what but the how of story telling. Miss Myers is a mistress of her art and possesses a charming personality. She has won a place in the hearts of our students and her return to Mount Union College summer school will be looked forward to with keen anticipation and delight. J. B. BOWMAN, A. M. Miss Mary H. Myers is a genius in the art of story telling. E. NORTHEN, Supervisor. It affords me very great pleasure to give this unsolicited testimonial to Miss Mary H. Myers. At my request to favor the First Presbyterian Sabbath School with a story, she responded by giving us a Bible story. The Sabbath school was delighted and a lasting impression for good was made on the minds of those present. Miss Myers is an artist in story telling. L. L. WEAVER, Supt. First Presbyterian S. S. Alliance, Ohio. We desire to express our appreciation for the excellent service of Miss Myers at the Summer School of University of Tennessee. We have been greatly helped in the art of story telling, as well as inspired to greater service. All hope that sometime, somewhere she may tell us more stories.
