While I do not under? value "the three R's", as the old time master used to have it "read? ing, riting, and rethmetic," still in order to interest and hold a child's attention, it is necessary to intro? duce other things which will not only vary the monotony of school life, but be of real lasting benefit to the dnild. Singing and draw ons, and stories of nature, Tory, and geography told by teacher, all help to develop memory, and at the same time prove of inestimable value to the child. Therefore, it must be dearly seen that no public school teach? er in a crowded, ungraded school sueh as we have in our county, can possibly pay the attention to our little folks we would like to have paid them, and while we wait for the public schools to im? prove, our primary tots are grow? ing up with untrained minds, and will be poorly equipped to enter the High School and College. Therefore I appeal to all par? ents of small children, let us stand as a unit in having a first class primary school established in our village. No "one dollar a month" sys? tem will do this. No giddy headed inexperienced college girl can do it. We can't afford to let a young beginner experiment with our children, but there should bes?me way to enable us to employ the services of an experienced teach? er who will take an interest in the work for the work's sake, and not merely "to keep school" for what few dollars it pays, such per? sons never succeed. We cannot expect, however. for any person ot experience to devote their time and energy to this work without ample reward, and the Journal may hear from me again on this subject as I have a plan \ would like to suggest to the parents of the village, espec? ially, and it might help others in One of the greatest needs of our different localities to establish County today is good schools not only for larger children, young men anr? ladies, but for our "lit? tle tots." good schools.
