Course of Study; The state board of education has adopted the Illinois course of study for tne schools of the state of Idaho. This course hss many advantages which es pecially commend it to the favor of the western states and it has already been adopted in a great many of the states and territories of America. This course divides the scholastic pro gram into months as well as into years, and prescribes the exact amount of work which must be comprehended in each month's endeavor. It is advan tageous in classifying or grading the pupils attending our rural district schools, as each one can be rated ac cording to the particular mouths of the course completed. So long as the rural school must needs pnt up with a shorter term than the city school, or so long as one district is obliged to continue its school for a shorter term than another district, the course here outlined will enable each scholar in the country dis tricts to be rated exactly according to his particular attainments, and when the pupil removes from one district to another, his place in the newly entered school is easy of ascertainment. This course marks a long practical step to ward the proper grading of the country schools.—Salmon Herald. Was 104 Years Old.
