In the last issue of this paper will be found a resolution adopted by the board of education at its last meeting. A resolution of this kind does not always mean very much, or, at least, needs to be explained order to be fully understood. It is for this reason that I append a few explanatory statements regard ing the proposition embodied in the xesolutions. I cannot here enter into any dis cussion of the new movements in education. Suffice it to say, that 'here is a general feeling both among educators and the public that our education has been too bookish and purely academic to suit the needs of present conditions, /in educational system in order to ^o the most efficient service to the community must touch somewhere he actual life of the people. Now, we are distinctly an agricultural nd industrial people, for which we ilight to be duly thankful, and our educational system should touch in vital way this important phase of our life. That is the reason for ..his strong and universal movement lor a more practical education. A beginning was made this year by introducing manual training and a little sewing into the public schools. These have proven both successful and popular with pupils and parents, and next year the plan vas to begin agriculture and do mestic science, of all sciences the nost important to our physical wel are. A much needed normal de partment will also be established "•or the purpose of preparing teach ers for the rural schools. This is practically wholly maintained by a special state appropriation. All these new departments require "oom and equipment which need to be provided, and it is with this in view that the board of education asks for the erection of a building to be used for industrial and agri cultural purposes. It seems almost idle to prove the needs of education for rural life. Vocational training is no longer a theory. It is an established fact. For years special schools have been training people for the learned and technical professions. Farming is a science, and special agricultural training will put farm ing on the same basis as other vo cations in which the workers are RINGVILLE ANGERS Ringville, Jan. 24—The temper ance lecture given in our school house last Tuesday eve by Mr. Slet ien was very good, and was much enjoyed by those present. IversUes and Halvorsons were guests at the Rasmus Olson home last Sunday. Miss Lou Larson visited with her sister Josie at New London last Friday and Saturday, and at the same time took in the debate given three Friday night. Patch ins, Becks and Homans spent Saturday eve with Beck and Lampky. A temperance society was organ ized at Georgeville last Saturday Mght. There are 38 members en ioiled. Ben. Chilman is president amd Sarah Chilman secretary. Other officers are Carl Restad, treas urer Albert Amundson, vice pres lent Mr. Miller, Hilda Amund and Lena Corneliupon. program committee. The first meeting will lc held in the Georgeville school .use on Saturday evening, Feb. CJi. Everybody welcome. Those who are taking part in the ay to be given in the district nere Ella Johnson is teaching, -metime in the near future, met ijr practice at Hoiseth's home last JTanday afcernoon. Sarah Chilman spent the first p-irt of the week sewing for Mrs. Rasmus Olson. Remember that the "The Miner va" meets Sunday evening, Jan. 30. Ringville, Jan. 17.—The Bethania Ladies Aid met with Mrs. Newgord Irfst Thursday. Miss Chelman, our teacher, re cently returned home from the hos pital, but she was not strong enough to resume her school work, so Miss Snyder from Eden Valley v, as engaged in her place and school opened again in district No. 11 last Monday. Hans Johnson and son Joseph Proposed Agricultural iind Domestic Science Features of Willmar Public Schools. trained for their work. Such train ing is now not only for the benefit of the individual: it has come to be a national necessity. J. J. Hill says in a recent article on this sub ject "Anyone who has studied the growth and decline of nations, and would read our own industrial fu ture, must be convinced that in struction in farm economy and man agement should become an indis pensible part of the educational work of this countrj." The special work in agriculture in charge of a competent instructor would include such subjects as, Soils and tillage Farm crops and rotation Selection of seeds Vege table gardening Fruit culture Ag ricultural botany Breeds of live stock Fertilizers and drainage etc. Experimental work would be con ducted on a suitable piece of land for that purpose. Education should prepare, as far as possible, for the real work of life. Girls should be educated for the work of the home. Our schools have unfitted many girls for this work. There is no greater accom plishment than that of being a good home-maker, and it is the aim of the domestic science department to give instruction and training in this important art. The course would include such subjects as, Sewing and the study of textiles Cooking and the study of foods Household management Sanitation Home decorations, etc. So much for the educational end of it. Now for the business end. The cost of maintaining the pub lic schools is about $18000, fully one third of which is paid by the state, so that only about $12000 is raised by local taxes. This maintains the plant consisting of five buildings with equipment, pays the corps of twenty-seven teachers, the services of three janitors, and for supplies, including all reading matter for one thousand children. This also in cludes the cost of permanent im provements that have to be made from year to year, such as laying cement walks and installing new heating plants. About $2000 were spent for such improvements this year. So efficiently and econom ically have the financial affairs of the district been administered by the board of education that in spite of considerable increase in the school system, the tax rate for from Stanley, N. D., is at present visiting old acquaintances around Georgeville. Birger Johnson left last Friday for North Dakota again after a short visit with friends. While here he attended th° wedding of his cousin, Haldor Corneliuson The Minerva will hold its next meeting on Sunday evening, Jan. 30. The literary program consists of a recitation, Jossie Hoiseth reading, Millie Amundson "Some thing" by Arthur Hoiseth recita tion, Mae Schultz. The question for the debate is "Resolved, that poverty is the cause of more crime than ignoiance." The affirmative speakers are Mr. Miller, Mr. M. Torgerson, and Lewis Larson, and on the negative Mr. J. Y. Kramer, Halvoison and Moik. We hope that the speakers apn minted will try to be present and s.lso that those put on program will fulfill the duty asigned them. Olaus Sonstegard, from Brooten Minn., visited at his old home here over Sunday, and at she same time made a trip to Willmr to consult a physician as he ha? not been feel ing well for some me. He was accompanied by his mother who also went down to seek medical aid. Alfred Hoiseth left last Friday for Morris. Minn., where he will work in Mr. Millers creamery. Elias Johnson of D.*nhoff, N. D.. made a brief visit wLh his father here last week while on his way home from a trip to the cities. The challenge debate between.our Minerva and the Nev London liter ary society will take place at the New London town hall Saturday evening Jan. 11. The question for discussion is "Resolved, that fur ther immigration should be prohib ited" The speakers from our so ciety are Edward Sonstegard, Clar ence Patchin, Olaf Sonstegaard, who will uphold the negative. The debate will surely be a very inter esting one and everybody interested should try to attend. Mrs. J. P. Johnson has been on the sick list the last week. Sensible Savings Talks. —II— Just about the best plan for saving money is to set as a mark a certain sum to save in a certain time. Then strive with grim determination to reach it Figure how much of the income must be set aside regularly to do it. Deposit this money in our Saving Department or on our Certificates of Deposit which we issue any time in any sum from a dollar up. Then when you have reached your goal you will have won a thousand buttles. You will duplicate your achievement in less time and with less effort. You will probably set your next mark higher. Adopt this plan now, and bring in your first deposit. KANDIYOHI COUNTY BANK ^5,, *y» '^U*~ A, W 'Jis school purposes has actually de creased. It was less last year than the aver.* ,?e for the last ten years. Let me cite as an instance of this managen ant that the cost of heat ing the mildings has not increased for ten ears, in spite of the fact, that the new high school building added nearly fiftj percent to the space to be heated, and hence should 1 we incret&ed the fuel bill by about that amount. It will cost something over $2,000 to mainain the manual training and the domestic science depart ments. The la&t State legislature, recog nizing the importance of a more practical education, made an appro priation to aid high schools in es tablishing manual training, domes tic scient and agricultural depart ments bj providing two-thirds the cost of maintenance up to $2,500. This was first given to ten schools but there is every reason to believe that this policy will be continued and additional funds provided for this purpose to such schools as make special effort, and show special in terest. To maintain these three departments would cost approxi mately $3,600, but by getting the special state aid, it would cost the district only $1,200, or $800 to $1, 000 less than it would cost to main tain two of these departments, man ual training and domestic science. From this it is very evident that it would be a business proposition for the district to get in line for this special state aid by putting a reasonable amount into a little building for industrial and agricul tural purposes. There will be such competition for this aid that only those schools will get it that have made some special effort to merit it. Erecting a building such as the resolutions contemplate, will not be an additional source of ex pense to the community, as the in terest on the bonds will be amply taken care of by the additional state aid of about $2,400. Willmar has always been sensible and generous in matters of education, and it is to be hoped that the Board of Educa tion will be sustained in their pro gressive policy of providing for our children facilities for an education more suited to the needs of the community, and in harmony with the best ducational movements of the time P.

Arthur J. Fisher in "Borrowed Spectacles." It depends upon the glasses. Seen thru the glasses of sourness and suspicion the butler is dishon est, the unfortunate friend an im poster, and the wife untrue. But if viewed thru the spectacles of kindliness and confidence the butler is honest, the friend trustworthy and the wife faithful. In "Bor rowed Spectacles" Arthur J. Fisher, the impersonator who appeared at the Presbyterian church last Fri day evening, succeeded admirably in proving this contention. And not only that, but what is better still he proved that the way of the hopeful optimist is the only way, that only thru his glasses can we come to find and understand and appreciate those with whom we live and labor. And because Fisher helped us to see that, we are glad he came, and we trust that he may continue for a long time in his good work. Dr. G. E. Gerretson, dentist, office in new Ruble block, Willmar.

I'm going to take the best possible care of her," answered young Mrs. Sneed.
