It frequently costs as much as !lv to make a single model. If this model is re- peated only twice on the building, th cost of each cast wlU be JS-jO. If the model is caat. as on the Textile-- Palace.

Work was commenced at the Palace of Electricity now In process of construction, by the Goldle Construction Company The conduit will leave th. electric subway, which runs Immediate! north of the building, and will make a direct line to the transformer house, which will bo erected inside the court of the Electricity Palace In the transformer house, the current is "ste-pped down" from a voltage of 6,000 volts to the ordinary electric light voltage of llu The current frem the generator plant is transmitten at a nign voltage, oi-cause t small wire will suffice to carry It under such conditions.

PLAN INDORSED BY TEACHERS Experiment Made at Columbii lias Attracted Wide Atten tion nnd System Is He- in Adopted Elsewhere. nnrrpT.rc stecia r Columbia, ilo , May CO A well-defined movement has been inaugurated that looks to the introduction of the study of agri culture i the rural public Bcbools of the Btate. Amorg those who are etpcially in terested are Professor F. H. ilumford. and Dean H J. Waters, of the Agricultural Col lege, and Secretary George J. Ellis of the State Board of Agriculture. The movement is indorsed by TV. T. Carrington. State Superintendent of State Public Schools, and Professor It. H. Jeise of the Jlis-ouri State University. The desirability of Introducing agriculture In the public schools aa a subject of study has been advocated for some time. It has ben largely discussed among th farmers of this State, and all who hae had any- J tnmg to do with agricultural work. The movement has been sanctioned by the lead ing educators as being pedagogically sound, fair j ears ago a committee of twelve lead ing educators of the United Mates was ap pointed by tn national Jiducatlon Assocla revwonof ! tion. it was to recommend the courses of study fo .r the rural rehoois. I l,"?,: . Its reDort. which was imouslr in faior of introducing agriculture as one of the prominent studies. The Uni erslty of Missouri Immediately tock the matter up. unJ was the Urst institution in America to put the subject on working Dasis. Teacher Larking in T.enrnlnjc. According to the authoritif"" of the State' Agricultural Coll-ge and Mr. E11K the greatest neeu. ana at tne same time tiie , greatest drawback in this new line of work, i is the lack of education on tne part ot teachers along this line To supply th la need the unlvrrItv four years ago com- menced its summer school of agriculture and horticulture designed mainly for teach ers of the State The lnteret that is be ing taken in the pubject Is evidenced by the fact that the departments of the uni versity summer school hnve had the largest portion of the attend ince. In fact at times there have b'en more students than could be properly handled Arrange ments for this j ear's summer school are made looking to a larger enrollment than ever before. Since the establishment of the university summer school courses In agriculture have been inaugurated by the State normal Fchools of Miouri and agriculture Is taught in a number of country publio schools. Circulars are now being s.nt throughout the State in order to ascertain the number of country schools now teach ing this branch. The MI'sruri Stnte University Is the only Institution in America that constantly main tairs a coure in technical agriculture for teachers. Many other institutions have courses In nature study, which Includes all the natural sciences As indicative of the work being done a. letter was received from the i-uperlnt ndent of public instruction cf MIchit,ar, stating that he had heard of the work being done here, and requesting an outline of the same This was sent to him, I ana in a. econa letter ne stated tnat he had tal.en this outline to a conference of the professor, of the agricultural collects and stated to them that Missouri was away ahead of all the other States In the matter of teaching agriculture in public schools. Will Contlnne .Tntnre Studies. The effort that is now belntr maele In e""n- lumbla, and b leaders of the educational movement In Missouri, has for its object the promotion of the sti-dv of agriculture in every public school in the rural district of Missouri. These leaders mako a distinc tion between the nature studies that are now widel used, and agriculture. The for mer has to do with man different branched. miiuuinK aii ot trie natural scicrc.-f The i movement that hn.s been Inan-iir.nfpri rn not contemplate the abolishment of Iheje nature studies. The proposed plan Is thJt th tudy of agric-ilture shall be the basis of all such work, nnd that these studies of nature shall be brought In onl as rhey are relate to the main subject agriculture It is claimed that ever- requirement of education supplied ley the nature studies is also supplied hy this study of agr!c'Jliur. It will store tho minds of th- pupils with valuable Information and knoweid; which can be applied practically in Inter life and at the- same time it will develep their pow ers of observation. The state Beard of Agr!cultt'r has Issued several bulletins' upon this subject already. It is the Intention of all concerned to "prose cute this work until the studv of agriculture shall be one of the main features in the courses of study In ever rural public school the State of Missouri.
