Mr. Wyndom, who was heartily
cheered when he arose to speak, an
nonneed at the outset that the govern

for the fulfillment of the proposed
scheme, but it attached greater im

the cash operation. He then unfolded
the old scheme which provides for ad

land by the tenants. The advances

A LIVE TALK TO
Prof. Kellers Observations on the
Development of Education
AS APPLIED TO THE COINTV SCHOOLS
Given Before an Institute of Manitowoc
INTEREST WAS AROUSED IN THE IDEAS
The Publication of this Paper Has Been Re
quested by Some of the Teachers
Some Excellent Suggestions
At an institute held last week in this
city Prin. Keller of the Northside high
school read a paper of great interest to
the upper forms of rural schools. The
first part of the paper appears and it will
be continued next week he says :
When first I considered the question
of what to present to this institute. I
thought of the subject, Industrial Work
in the Grades and the Rural Schools,
the absorbing question now before
educators, the result of the teaching
of the newer padagogy which is getting
away from the idea of developing the
mental activities purely as such and
which is aiming at a broader and
higher development the executive
ability of the will over these activities
in producing something material in
character which, viewed from a peda
gogical standpoint, serves as an index
or a test of the true status and relation
of these activities. However, I felt I
did not wish to tnkt* so much of your
time to discuss so general and broad a
subject and then, no doubt, you are
coming here to get something practical,
something you can take back to your
schools and at once apply or test, at
least. 1 came to this conclusion from
my own experience, fur, while I was
teaching in the rural school, when
hardly more than a boy, with little
experience, I usually felt, npon coming
away from a teachers' meeting or insti
tute, as the proverbial wise man of the
village expresses it, Preaehin’ is all
right, but livin' is another proposition.’
■'Bo, I shall take but a small part of
the general subject and label it science.
When you know that 1 emphasize the
Informing of experiments by the
student as well as by the teacher, yon
will readily see how this subject truly
belongs to industrial work, it at least
touches the fundamental principles in
the industrial education of the student
of the rural schools and to a large
extent of the city student. I shall state
first the aims which are to guide in
doing tiiis work, and then I shall show
how the experiments listed on the slips
handed to you are performed, giving
you also an idea of how this material
can Is* secured, of the expense connected
therewith, and how to put this xvork
into your programmes, which are. at
least iu the rural schisds, already very
much overcrowded if the school is of
any considerable size.
“The turns are : (a) This work should
stimulate an interest iu the natural
phenomena round alsmt the student
every day which are usually passed by
unobserved or. if seen at all, only
(b) "Upon this interest, or rather
through it, the training of the power of
keen and thoughtful observation, which
observation acts reciprocally upon in
terest, creating more, for it creates an
appetite for more knowledge.
(c) “It leads him to seo the short
comings of his environment in fur
nishing him Information and thus a
natural avenue to books is created. In
