Agriculture in Schools
Dr. Schaffer recommends the study
of Agriculture in publio schools. The
course is to be optional but he says is
highly desirable and gives the fol
lowing among other reasons :
"The importance of this new sub'
jeot is no longer disputed. It is
needed in tbe rnral school to arouse
and retain an interest in the borne
environment, aud to render a service
in perfecting and mating more com
moo the methods now known and
nsed by the few, and it is necessary
to enlist an army of recruits in the
most fundamental industry in Amer
ioa. High cost of living can be re
duced by a mora icteuaive nroduo
tion aud by the removal from the
dependent town and city life to the
more independent and sell' supporting
oountry life of many who are oofam
iliar with its opportunities.

The Disagreeable Task.
So often has (t been charged tbat
tba pnblie schools foros too many
and too diftionlt tasks upon the pa
piis that any contrary statement Is
read with surprise. . Tbe retiring
president oi the National Education
Association recently expressed bis
disagreement with the prevailing
view when he said that the fsult too
eoiu toon in many of the beet schools
is that of making the way too easy
for the child. He feared that "such
made easy and rapid transit math,
ods" wonld produce "a crop of Intel
lectnally spoiled children, flabby of
mind, weak of will, superficial in
oharaoter. Inaccurate in scholarship,
doing nothing well except what they
like to do." He urged that they
should be trained to do whatever it
ia their duty to do, wbetber it is
pleasant or not, and that the accom
plishment of the needed work should
provide snrflclent Joy.
This is wholesome doctrine to
preach to young persons, and to
those who are engaged in training
the young. It applies to parents, as
well as tu mare formal teachers.
Many a parent who has struggled
to overcome early obstacles resolves
to save his children the hardships
of bis own youth. The children thus
trained bring forth other children
who usually go to the dogs.
