That is the keynote that the

In 1854, Hon. Samuel Sullivan
Cox (then plain Mr. Cox) was

ble the work necenary, and
never knows when work it well
done. In schools where the
teachers have the children and
their parents with all their pre
judice to contend with a regular
and well developed plan Is ne
cessary such a plan as can be
successfully carried into execu
tion, and, will show that the
teacher is master of the ltua-
tlon. : ?' ' "
The French commission to
the International Exhibition of
1876 in reporting the condition
of the schools in the United
States says : "The characteris
tic trait of the country school
is the absence' of a regular or
ganization." Referriug to the
houses, the same commission
says : "The stone or brick build
ing constitutes the exception,
the frame house, which la so
cold in winter and so hot in
summer is more frequent and
the log school house has not
yet disappeared. Even in the
most flourishing States many
complaints are made in regard
to defective accommodations.
We are not describing here ex
ceptional cases. We are trying
on the contrary to do justice to
this great country; but we must
not conceal the fact that the
schools in the rural districts are
poor and badly arranged. In
Pennsylvania and New Hamp
shire reports, the only States
that exhibited . documents on
this subject.we find, in fourteen
out of twenty-two reports, com
plaints of teacherb who have
absolutely no school apparatus.
The salaries of country school
teachers are so low that our
French teachers have no reason
to envy them."
