Interesting and instructive programs
he had been arranged and were carried out
in full. There is tangible evidence that
07 1 these meeting are doing great good and
must continue to do so from year to
it year. There were some 500 or more in
attendance, among whom were some of
the leading educators of the country.
The social feature was pleasant, but
greatest of all was the inspiration gain
ed by coming in contact with others of
your profession, and the exchanging of
ideas pertaining to your work. Promi
nent in the program of the county Sup
[ES erintendent's Association was the brief

an tion to me to be able to report a $30,000

is We need better buildings and them bet

to yet without patent desks, but worst of
id- all, some are destitute of black boards,
di. while some hardly worthy the name of
black boards. Of all things needed in a
t- school room, nothing is more needed
109 than black boards-in fact no real teach
>t ing can be efected without them. I have
iat boards on hand and can supply your
ce schools, and shall be glad if the trustees

. Our people need to bestir themselves
. and do more for the improvementof their
n- school buildings. Let us have better and
more commodious buildings, and them
neatly ,painted and well equipped with
good desks and black boards. Let us
eliminate some of the small schools by
'as using part of the funds in transporting

e- Some of the small schools with fewer
Ds- than ten pupils pay the teachers $35 per
