The College of Agriculture of the

school for teachers of1 tho county on
six alternate Saturdays beginning Jan.
27th, In one of the local schools. Six
ty have already signified their Inten
tion of pursuing tho course. Supt.
W. W- Borden of the Frederlcktown
schools, has the registration in charge.
Much Is read and heard at the pres
ent time concerning' individual in
struction in the schools, and to devel
op each according to his own individ
uality that method is most important.
With an average of thirty-five to a
class and thirty minutes to a recita
tion In the grades, and forty minutes
in the high school, each pupil would
have 51 seconds as his share ofthe
time in the former schools and 68 sec
onds in the lattor. That time does
not give much opportunity for atten
tion to the individual. The solution,
of course, Is fewer pupils per teacher.

which Is nothing but tin Inllamed cordl
