?y llio new school law, Township Boards
of Education are invested with power to
determine the text books which shall boused
in the schools of their respective townships.
The reasons for this provision are ovious.
In a school in which there are a multipli
city of text books upon the same subject,
the classes become ulinost or quite as numer
ous as the pupils, and hence the teacher can
not get time to discuss, illustrate or enforce
anything. His time and energies are fritter
ed away in hurrying from one. class to an
other, doing nothing as it ought to be done,
hut everything in a hasty and unsatisfactory
manner. He can hear the children " say
Ihcir lemons," nothing more. By this mode
of proceeding the memory may be cultivated,
but every other faculty of the mind becomes
dwarfed through inactivity. Here we have
a solution of the. problem why we find so
many possessing more or less knowledge, yet
so very few conect reasouers. Perception,
consciousness, reason, understanding, judg
ment and imagination are all neglected, and
the consequence is, the mind of a child uni
ted with the body of on adult.
It is to remedy these evils, so fur as may
be, that Township Boards of Education are
clothed with the pow-er above stated. Though
the number of pupils in the rural districts
prevents the establishment of "graded
schools," the. law contemplates approxima
ting as near to them inefficiency as possible,
by providing for thorough classification. It
is well known to every intelligent instructor
that in most of teaching proper, instruction
can be communicated as effectively to class
es numbering 10 or 15 pupils, and in many
instances more so, than to those of only two
or three. With a uiformity of text books,
classes can be enlarged ; their number there
by diminished, and time secured for explana
tion and enforcement. The great object of
all instruction, discipline o mind, can nev
er be attained by simply repeating what may
have been committed to memory.
These considerations should be: sufficient
to stimulate Boards of Education to an en
ergetic discharge of the duty imposed upon
them by the statute; but there is another of
scarcely less imprtance. Under certain cir
cumstances, scholars are to be transferred
from one sub-district to auother. Should
these districts be in the use of different text
books, the transfer of a single pupil would
ndd a whole series of recitations to the la
bors of the teacher. This would work gross
injustice to the mass of the school, as the
time and energy which belonged to classes,
would be devoted to the single pupil. A
lew children with unlike hooks, thrown as
here supposed, into a well organized and well
appointed school, would greatly injure if not
utterly destroy its efficiency. Under the ex
isting stale of facts, this calamity may be
fall any of our schools at any time.
These suggestions are. submitted to the at
tention of our Township Boards of Educa
tion, hoping they will bestow that considera
tion upon them which their importance de
To Cook Nkw Potatoes. No matter how
small new potatoes are, they may be cooked
so as to be a most delicious and healthy
summer vegetable. After boiling, you should
let them get thoroughly cold. They should
then be. sliced into a wooden bowl, and
chopped with a chopping knife, but not ve
ry fine. Put them into a frying pan and
let them warm over a slow fire, adding a
lump of butter and milk sufficient to mois
ten well. Season while wanning, with salt
to suit the taste.
Anothkr Method. Scrape the potatoes,
and boil in just water enough to cover them ;
when done, pour off the water, and add but
ter and good milk or cream, with salt and a
little parsley. Let it come to' a boil, and
take it up.

was suflered to remain without further in- i
