There is one point that I wish to
emphasize particularly and that is the
.ahie of newspapers as text-books in
the study of geography. It is through
then that one can keep np with the
geography of the world and teachers
ami pupil-- should consult them, study
ti-'ii- maps and thus be contin'ia'ly
a'irea: t of !. times, particularly in
' ii " case of .ie'.v explorations.
Teachei s w ill einiitiasize th value i f
reading tl:e daily newspapers to their
pupil- hereafter. Text-hooks are often
live to ten years liehind the times, but
a "umi newspaper is up to date. A
notable example of the value of this
practice is afforded by the recent gold
discov -ries in Alaska. Text-books do
not t-!l about it. but the nevspaers
have printed maps and descriptions
of the regions which present the facts
When school op:i- next month
teachers will tin.! on! how much the
children have read about current
events. They will taik the subjects
over in the class rooms and will con
tinue to keep up the interest in what is
"Mini; on in the world.
I!y these methods boys a ml jriris wiil
receive a fundamental education which
w ill be of value vastly greater to them
in the battle of life than the mere
memorizing of iigurcs and dates and
the repetition of facts which they do
not understand and in which they take
no interest. Sujierint dent Greenwood.
We are now prepared to place on
tiie market our machines for jrenerat
inir Acetylene Gas. These machines
are adapted for lijrh'injr stores,
factories, churches and private rcsi
tiences. Small towns and farmers can
now haye jras as well as those in the
cities, as each consumer controls his
own little jras plant, which is quite
inexpensive. We jruarantee to furn
ish six times as much lijrht at less than
half the expense of ordinary jras,
electric lijrht or kerosene lamps. A
first-class airent is wanted in every
county to sell our machines.
