For
Miss Katie McDaniel County
Superintendent of School requests
us to call attention to thfc following
letter
Frankfort Ky
Ladies and Gentlemen
Weare led to address you again
on thesubiect bv the fact that in
formation reacheus fromanumber
of sources that jii some counties of
the State no effort was mada last
summer to organ ize Teachers Reading-Circles
As was seen from the following
circular copies of which were furn
ished yoearly in this scholastic
jyear the State Board of
ersds an inducement to the teach-
r
prs nnrl rtrhprc nn icflro nrnnrinir
to teach to take the Course prom
ised so to irame 30 to 60 per cent
of the questions on Theory and
Practice for the examinations to
be held this calendar year as to
call for answets from the two pro
fessional works named in the
Course while current events as affecting-
the history and civil govern
ment ol this country and geography
in general were to make 20 to 50
per cent of the questions on those
subjects
This plan was thought preferable
to ottering specific credits to mem
bers who should take the work in
that the applicant profits in the ex
amination only in the branches in
cluded in the Course and then only
in proportion as the work has been
thoroughly and faithfully done
While the board must keep faith
with members of the Reading Circle
Jbv complying with its promise in
the make up of the examination
-questions it ia due all applicants
to be informed as to this feature ot
the examinations We knew of no
better or more practical way to
reach them than through you and
trust that every teacher in this
State and especially every one
who expects to take the examina
tion this j ear has had an oppor
tunity to prepare for it alonj these
lines Otherwise the questions on
these particular subjects may prove
to be not only a stumbling block to
the applicants but a matter of se
rious embarrassment to county
boards of examiners as well
County boards can not permit ap
plicants who fail in these subjects
to pass without doing violence to
their consciences aud to their offi
cial oaths and at the same time
common fairness would demand that
all applicants should have had am
ple warning on the subjects
The books prescribed for the cir
cle may be had for a mere trifle
and we sincerely trust that the
teachers of the State better to pre
pare themselves rot only for the
examinations but for their pro
fession have taken advantage of
the work suggested
V J Davidson

In accordance with the above a
large reading circle was organized
in the county last fall and the books
have been widely circulated and

and Teachers
KENTUCKY STATE TEACHERS READ
INC CIRCLE
To promote professional train
and to unite the teachers of the
State in a common course of in
struction the State Board of Ex
aminers has adopted under the fol
lowing regulations the course here
set forth
It is the sense of this board that
the course should be a graded one
and should cover more than one
years work and that the work for
each year should be definitely
planned with that in view In ac
cordance with the above we have
adopted for the year 1898 9 Pages
Theory and Practice of Teachers
a general work on pedagogy and
Quicks Educational Reformers
a history of education
On account of the significance of
the history we are now making the
changes in geography consequent
thereto and the influence of both
upon our policy and civil govern
ment we would urge each teacher
to read some educational journal
treating these subjects fully and
ably
To encourage teachers to take the
work of the Reading Circle and to
read at least one good educational
journal we have determined that
for the teachers examinations for
1899 30 to 60 per cent of the ques
tions on theory and practice shall
be taken from the two books of the
reading circle course and that 20 to
50 per cent of the questions on
geography history and civil gov
ernment shall be taken from the
current events of 1898 and 1899

ment is confined onlv to early and
medium late wheat the extreme
late being
worthless
the snow

Soots in fields wbare

estimated tiat 7 per cent of the
acreage will be plowed up
Corn planting made considera
ble progress during the month and
while there yet remains much
ground a be broken planting be
gan as early as the middle of the
montlu The early planted came up
qnickly and is growing rapidly
No complaint is made of injury from
cut worms or ther insects The
ground dried ery rapidly during
the latter days of the month and
some difficulty is experienced in
tirettinir the ground in irood condi
tion for planting
The per cent of the crop of 1S9S
still in farmers hands averages 29
Tobacco plants though plentiful
will be late
Clover generally wintered well
and has made wonderful growth
since the advent of warm weather
It is now ready for stock to be
