Kvaus, who hack In lfMit and 1H72, ant UTOnS was pas tor of the Kvatttfelical cliurcli In this county, anil lived on the farm now occupied by Mr. and Mrs, Thomas Kygcr. Tlie cliurcli was not as strong then as now, and his duties called him as far north as Hamburg, Iowa, Hock I'orl. and Mound City, but the principal congregation was the old Nlckell's Orove church. Oregon had no house of worship, and he used to hold meetings In the old Kunkel Mills. He Is now 81 years old, and wonder fully active for his years. Ills wife died In June, MIX He Is now living In Jewell City, Kas and Is not In ac tive ministerial work, but occasional ly (Ills an appointment. He has one child burled at Nlckell's Grove and one In Oregon. Sit children are llv-lng-2 girls and 2 boys,at.lewellClty; oneboy at Kansas City, and one In Idaho. This Is his llrst visit back hero In seven years, and he notices keenly how the ranks or the old members have been thinned. Henry and Dan iel Zachmati and Nathan .Smith are the only ones left of that early-day roll call. It was largely through his personal Inllueiice I hat Nathan and Will Smith, Jerry I lunkclbergur, and the Kuhrman's became cltl.ens of oti( county.

The aim of the school cannot be secured unless the material used In the Instruction is wisely selected, carefully arranged and graded, and properly correlated and alternated. Thus tho course of study Is the most natural expression of the alms of the school. Until recently there has been no general recognition by the American people of the vast Importance of Hie elementary course of study. Hut of late years educators have given much study to the course of study for the elementary schools. Courses have been modified by the weeding out of the purely formal exercises, like pars ing, the spelling of long lists of unre lated words, arithmetical oddities, and mechanical map questions In ge ography, and by the liitrvt:,otlon In their place of Interesting and useful knowledge of all kinds. Art In the form of music, drawing, and painting: literature and history In the form of stories, myths, legends, and biogra phies; science under the namu of na ture study, agriculture, elementary botany, oology, and ph)slology, and on the side of expression wu hae hand work, physical and manual raining, and domestic science. Asa result uf the demands made upon the school, and In order to ac complish the alms of the school it Is clear that to construct an Ideal course uf study Is a very dllllcult piece of work. In making a course of study there are three great problems Involved. Namely; the selection of studies, tho orderoftoplcsaiid studies, and currel.it lull of suhjtcls In selection uf subjects Mieie are various theories as lo how Hie selec tion should be made and ilHTereiit standards have been vji upon which to determine the relative value uf Indies.

Children have a natural low for comparing, measuring and esti mating. These all require Judgment. History in thu form of folk-lore, legends, traditions, stories, and bi ographies should llnd a place In all elementary courses during the llrst four years. History deals with ac tions and human motives, it presents virtues and vices In concrete form, and thus presents thu child Ideals of conduct. It treats of relations of In dlvlduals, and out of these relations spring moral obligations, thus the study of history altords constant exer cise for moral Judgment. History is the most potent means of making a pupil an Intelligent cltlen, proud of thu achievements of his countrymen, and mindful of Ids duty to Ids statu and nation. The art .studies atrord a means-of aesthetic culture and may Justly claim a place In the curriculum Drawing, painting, and dramatizing are easy and graphic methods of ex pressing Ideas and afford excellent methods of precept, and thus afford a basis (or clear and definite memory Images. It Is elear that a well-balanced course or study should provide for proper exercises of both the sensory and motor nerves.
