school and the city school were much
alike. Each had small, ' cheap build

no teaching apparatus, .bacn. arew

paid them about the same salaries.

known in city and," country. But fif
ty years have seen great changes in
' American education, and in these
changes the country school has oeen
left far behind. The concentration
of wealth has made it necessary, that
the ciites should develop a class of
schools capable of meeting the chang
, y". ed conditions of our life. They have
; provided more liberally, .f or u their

Much good work was also done by
some schools in this county. Unfor
tunately, however, the blizzardy
weather prevented many districts
from having any successful obser
vance of the occasion.
In such districts the teacher is ur
ged to set apart another day for gen
eral observance by the patrons just as
soon as possible after school reopens.
If a general public occasion is not
thought advisable, the teacher should
at least send word to all parents to
attend a "parents' meeting"- to be
held on the first available Friday af
ternoon. And no matter whether a
public celebration is held or only a
parents' meeting, the teacher ana
patrons should seek first of all to get
definite action on such of the follow
ing fourteen improvements as are
most needed by the local school.
1. Lengthing the term. '
2. Getting additional teachers.
3. Getting better school buildings.
4. Painting the building.
5. Improving 'school grounds.
6. Getting a school library!
7. Getting a traveling library.
8. Getting sanitary drinking foun
tains or individual drinking cups.
9. Getting pictures for the school.
10. Arranging for a school farm in
11. Arranging for a .school fair.
12. Arranging for a course of lec
