change of courtesies, but it seems en
tirely feasible \o list certain conditions

with some degree of assurance, select
a country place where they would have
a good time and that rural residents
could act with equally satisfactory re

For those of its readers to whom
this idea of an exchange appeals The
Journal submits this plan:
Bural residents wishing to come to
the city or to send their children in for
a visit of a week or two to benefit by
the contact with city life and institu
tions, have but to fill out one of the
Rural Resident'' coupons on this page
and send it as addressed. As will be
noted, this coupon also signifies that
the sender is willing, in return for the
More Boom Needed.
In this home they have boarded and
taught their young charges, but re
cently it became apparent that the
number of pupils who applied for admis
sion was far in excess of the accommo
dations. The houses are delightfully
located, near enough to the center of
the city to make them practically with
in walking distance, yet in a neigh
borhood which gives a charming atmos
phere of excluslveness and retirement.
Finally the property was bought by
Miss Bubel and Miss Bartlett and last
fall the George Miller house, which has
been used as the schoolhouse proper,
received a large and up-to-date addi
tion in the form of an annex to be used
for the school department and now Gra
ham Hall is well equipped and in a
position to take care of all its stu
dents. In the annex are many of the
schoolrooms as well as the large and
airy gymnasium.

Graham Hall, an Institution Where Pupils Are Surrounded
By Home Influences and Instructed By Teachers
Specially Trained for the Work.
Graham Hall is one of the few Min- for the gjrls who play in the basket-ball

Bens of the word, with mother love and
mother care for all the troubles in the
lives of the little onesand the ad
vantages of a school governed by a
capable and intelligent corps of in
structors according to the best and most
scientific principles of education. The
value of such a school is appreciated
at home and abroad and pupils from
all parts of the northwest come to
Graham Hall.
The growth of Graham Hall since its
opening about six years ago has been
extraordinary-. Miss Zuleina A. Ruble
and Miss Carrie F. Bartlett, the prin
cipals, opened the school the first year
in a house at Nicollet avenue and
Twenty-fourth street. From the begin
ning the demand for more room was
urgent, and shortly thereafter the man
agement of the school took possession
of the two Miller residences near
Eighteenth street on First avenue 8.

from attending even the simplest exer-

features at Graham Hall. Miss Aves is
a graduate of the B. O. Ott school of
Expression and of the Kansas City
Normal School of Physical Training
and has made the study of physical
culture her life-work. The girls are
taught how to walk correctly and acwork
quire an easy, graceful carriage, how fb
control their muscles and how to avoid
the careless habits which are often the
cause of deformities of once young and
healthy figures.

Primary Work First Consideration.
Perhaps none of the departments is
conducted wtih greater care and suc
cess than the primary department. One
of the first principles of the school is a
good, solid foundation for learning and
as this can only be obtained thru the
best efforts in primary work particular
stress is laid upon this. The manage
ment has been more than fortunate in
securing the services of Miss Ina Good
ale. Miss Goodale loves the children
people reciprocate with the most ardent
admiration for their teacher. Miss
Goodale is talented above the average,
a gifted artist with pen and brush and
she finds it an easy task to work with
her little charges. Her educational
is such as to teach the children
thru the sense methods in the most
scientific manner, yet a sunny tempera
ment permits her to eliminate anything
that might work oppressively on the
young minds, and so the work is turned
into the merest play. Miss Goodale is
also a true musician and much of the
study is interwoven with song. The
primary rooms are bright, .sunny and
well airedin fact, all the schoolrooms
do not fall faT short of being perfect.
Boys Are Admitted.
One advantage of the school is that
boys are admitted in the primary and
intermediate grades. Foreign languages
are taught entirely by conversation and
all the grammar work is taught in the
language to beacquired by Jeachexs

Saturday is cleaning-up and mending

to shopping trips under the escort of
one of the teachers. Sundays the chil
dren are taken to whichever church
they belong to in the afternoon they
can visit, rest and write letters and in
the evening from 5 to 6 the Sunday
school is conducted by the two princi
pals. Saturday evening is the at-home
night, when the children mingle in a
pleasant social intercourse and when
they are taught the little social manners
and graces which are an essential of the
education of a woman. At these little
gatherings they have games and con
tests and often they are allowed to en

By studying these lists earefully,

If there is a demand for an exchange ^1
of this sort, many pleasant friendships 1*

and these, together with the education
which all may derive from travel, are
the considerations which induce Tke
Journal to open its columns to theses
who may desire to make the experi
ment. Minnesota is full of the homes
of well-to-do farmers who are situated
so as to entertain city visitors royally
in the summer months and the fresh air
and the free life that can be enjoyed:
there by city dwellers will amply repay,
them for the pleasant task of returning
the courtesy. On the other hand there
is much in the city to interest the rural
visitor and in addition it may not in
frequently happen that the open doom
of some city home will be the factor
which makes a city visit possible.
This is just the right season of the
year to begin the experiment. Beside
the ordinary attractions of he elty,^the
amusement season is at its height, |&d
residents of outlying towns and rriral
districts will appreciate hospitality of
fered by city residents. And it is none
too soon for city dwellers to begin to
plan a summer trip. I
