An excellent way for a teacher
to begin the study of taxes is for
her to study the operation of
revenue laws in her own district.
If she will work out answers to the
questions below, she will have u
excellent start in the subject, and
hat she learns will enable her to
talk intelligently and convincingly
to the dit'cctors on the subjects of
taxes, salary, and school improve
1. Vhat is the assessed valua
tion of the property in the district?
2. What is the rate of taxation
for education purposes?
3. Wnat is the rate for build-
4. How much did the directors
call for in their lev for earh of
5. How much was actually re
ceived for each fund?
6. Why the difference?
7. Was all the property in the
district assessed? (L,ook out! This
s dangerous ground.)
8. Was it all assessed at its
fair cash value" as the law re
1 lie answers to tlie lirst s l x
questions can be found in the
offices of the county clerk and the
county treasurer. The answers to
the last two may be harder to find.
Probably a teacher can exert no
greater Influence upon those coni
ng under her instruction than to
wisely direct their recreation and
reading, it you want some in
teresting data to study, get your
pupils to answer in writing the
1. What books, other than text
books, have you read since school
began in September?
2. How much time do you
spend every day in reading?
3. What is the difference be
tween reading and studying?
4. What newspapers a ri d
magazines come to your home re
gularly? Where is each published?
What is its subscription price?
5. Arrange them in the order
in which you like them.
6. Do you get the monthly list
of publicationu published by United
States department of agriculture?
CA post card will get it for you.)
With this information, you
ought to be able to help your com
mumty in its selection of good
newspapers and magazines. Ask
your pupils to bring a copy of
each publication to school so that
all may see them and get some
dea what they are like. .Once in
while, assign some good editorial
as a reading lesson. Base your
arithmetic lesson on some problem
round in some ot the iann papers
it you are inventive, you can
diversify your school work quite a
little using these publications -as
If you find that your school or
district has what you call a large
list, we should be glad to have you
send it to us. Also send us the
largest list taken by any one
The first difficulty that arises
when school officials decide to
establish ,i department of agricul
ture in the public schobl is the
matter of finding a suitable teacher
to take charge of the work. In
nearly every case boards of educa
tion say, "We wanjt a man that
Has had hrst-hand farm experience,
who ,is a graduate of an agricultural
college, who i s a good . mixer
among country people, who can
advise farmers in their business,
and who has had experience as a
teacher. Pretty high standards of
qualification to ask for, at a salary
of $720 a year! The standards
are all right, but we can scarcely
hope to find the teacher from the
ordinary sources, and at the ordi
nary salaries. We must develop a
new race of teachers for this work
The trouble with the ordinary
teachers is that they know little or
nothing of the world outside the
classroom; of business, or economic
conditions. Ihe teaching force in
the present system is academic, it
is always looking in tile book for
precedent and method, , and it has
not been able to give vocational
instrument such a s agricultural
education must be
That school officials do not grasp
the idea of vocational education in
most public schools where agricul
tiire is introduced may be seen by
the fact that the teacher of agricul
ture is often required t o teach
botany, zoology, manual training,
to coach the athletic teams, and to
sit guard over the assembly room
for a period or two. A single
period of forty-live minutes is pro
bably allotted to agriculture. Of
course, the teacher of agriculture
under such conditions will have
difficulties of many sorts.
Other difficulties often mentiou-
STRADER IN BLAZE
Representative Strader o f the
Gttnst Cigar house of Honolulu
was a passenger in an auto one
day last week, when through some
tinknow cause, fire broke out
neath the hood, a n d instantly
transfcred itself t o the oil pan
which extends the length of the
car beneath. Strader transfcred
himself to terra-firma where he
organized a fire bregrade of an in
dividual character and got into ac
tion at the first tap of the gong.
Gathering up ft guny sack that
couldn't possibly leak, he rushed
head long at a pool of water at the
foot of an embankment, from
whence he emerged just as the
driver had succeeded in kicking
the blazing oil pan from under the
car. Landing the saturated fire-
distinguisher on the ears solar
plexis the flames dissappeared as if
by magic, the apron was replaced,
the driver took his place beside the
distinguished extinguisher a n d
their destination wns reached o n
time regardless of theconflagrhtion.
Strader has been offered induce
ments to remain in Waiuiea as a
fire department, but as he has a
standing contract to remain in Ho
nolulu while Bobby Burns General
Arthur, he was compelled to de
cline the Waimea offer.

ed are: That pupils do not take
active interest in the subject, that
parents discourace the work, that
n o standard texts, outlines o r
methods are available, that equip
ment is meatrer. and that timo i
limited. These minor difficulties.
however, are casilv eliminated
whenever the well-nrenared and
efficient teacher takes plmrrrp nf
the work. The leal dificulty is. to
hnd the good teacher of agriculture
and to place this vocational train-:
ing in the regular school organiza
tion without defeating the purposes
of agricultural education.
