Uniformity or Text Books Is Nc
It is now generally recognized and ad
mitted by all progressive and enlighten
ed educators that our schools, in order to
be most successful, and efficient, must be
thoroughly classified. Not unaptly has
it been said "time is money," and man
ifestly a system of classification in schools
which. will enable the teachers to impart
the most pcaiihle instruction in the time
allotted him each day is of prime impor
tance. The old practice of calling out
the pupils, separately, to "say their les
sons," might serve the age when scholars
were few, booksscarce, and men lived a
thousand years. But in this day, not on
ly is the teacher's time, but the few brief
years of tutilage which can now be given
to our children, are very important, and
should be economized to the best possi
ble advantage. To this end the pupils
in every school should be so classified as
to enable the teacher to instruct as many
pupils as possible at the same time.
On entering a new school, the first
work of the teacher should be to ascer
tain the attainments of his pupils the
studies they are to pursue then to ar
range them in ns few classes as practi
cable, and prepare a programme of daily
recitations, intermissions and exercises
assigning to each due time, and then not
allow the time allotted for one recitation
to be encroached upon by another, but to
adhere to a well arranged programme.
To secure such classification, and the
many advantages resulting from it imi
formityof Text Books is absolutely neces
sary ; without it, such classification can
not be made.
To illustrate, let us suppose that the
most advanced pupils whose attainments
are such that they come to be classed to
gether, were to bring spellers, readers,
arithematics, geographies, grammars, &c.
by three or four different authors, on ev
ery subject, the same lesson could not
be assigned to all, nor could a joint reci
tation be had from all ; and the teacher
must necessarily make as many different
classes as there are different kinds of
Text Books ; and thus be able to devote
but one third, or one half as much time
and instruction to each class. Whereas,
if all had the same kind of Text Books,
they could be classed together, and thus
receive three or four times as much aid
and instruction from the. teacher, and
this is not all, where there there is a di
versity of Text Books, and so many class
es must recite, all are necessarily hurried
not enough time can be devoted to each
to fully explain the subject under consid
eration, and thus for want of time on the
part of the teacher, the scholars loose
their interest in their studies, and make
but little progress. But, where there is
an uniformity of Text Books, enabling a
proper classification, the number of class
es can be so reduced that ample time can
be devoted to each recitation, for the
teacher to fully explain, and the pupils
mentally digest the subject under consid
eration. And by thus bringing a larger
number of scholars together, in one reci
tation, they will by free exchange of views
and free discussion, awaken a lively in
terest and spirit of competition, which is
a guarantee of the greatest and most
thorough progress, and it is a well estab
lished fact among practiced educators that
such an interest on the part of the pupils
is the surest pledge of success and one
the greatest helps in the acquisition of
When we take into account the expense
incurred in the erection of school houses,
in the employment of teachers, the cloth
ing and feeding our children, and when
we estimate what is of far more value and
importance-our children's time it would
seem like a "penny-wise and pound-foolish"
policy, to thus cripple the efforts and
destroy the interest, and dwarf the attain
ments of our pupib for the mere want of
a uniformity of Text Books, especially at
the present day, when books are so cheap
and the expense so trifling. The artist,
the mechanic, and the American laborer
understand the economy of securing the
best tools to work with, and most eminently
is it economy to secure uniformity of the
best books for our students.
Coming together as the people of our
Territory have, from different sections
of the country, the school books they have
brought with them, are widely diversified
so that in my official visitation cf schools,
I not unfrequently find Text Books by
three or four different authors upon one
subject in the same school, thus preclud
ing the possibility of a proper classifica
tion. I find, also, that while seme teach
ers have secured something like a unifor
mity of bocks in their own schools-which
is well so for as it goes the schools ia
neighborhoods all around each acting in
dependently of all others, have other and
entirely different books. So that when
patrons move from one distrct to another
or patronize a different school, they are
compelled to buy new books before their
children can enter the regular classes.
Now, if all the schools use the same kind
of books, patrons would be saved this
Again, teachers prefer to use such
books as they are acquainted with; such
as they have been accusfcraed to use.
Hence, when they enter a new district,
and find different book3 in use, they fre
quently persuade the people to buy new
ones. Now if there was a standard uni
formity of books in all our schools, a3 the
teacher went from one district to another
they would find such books as they had
been accustomed to use, and would not
desireany change. Here, again, the
people would be saved a heavy expense by
the adoption of a standard uniform series
of books; while it is granted that the
immediate adoption of a standard uniform
series of books in the schools of Nebras
ka, will entail some present expense, yet
from the examples cited, and many more
which might be named, it is manifest that
in the end it would be a great saving of
expense aud productive of great good in
Having shown that no well arranged
classification can be had without unifor
mity of books, that the expense for books
would be far less with a uniformity than
with a diversity; and believing, as I do,
that with the advantages of such classi
fication our pupils could secure as high
attainments at the age of fourteen years,
as they would without it at the age cf six
teeen or eighteen, the wisdom and econ
omy of at once adopting a uniformity of
boooks is aparent.
In view of these fact3 I have felt that
the adoption of a uniformity of books
in our schools is of the first importance,
and to this end, I have recommended in
my last annual report to the Legislative
Assembly, a list of bocks as such stan
dard uniformity. In making the selec
tion, the sole aim was, to secure the best
books extant, and to do this, I called to
my aid good practical teachers, and edu
cators, where years of experience in the
practical duties of the schoolroom, well
qualified them to decide upon so impor
tant a question, and to them I submitted
all the various Text Books before the
public that I had been able to obtain, af
ter a careful examination and compari
son of the raerit3 of the several works
submitted to them, the recommended books
selected as the best for the purposes de
signed, and I earnestly request that the
Officers of Schools, Teachers and patron3
will co-operate in securing the adoption
ana permanent use or tne books recom
mended. It has been suggested that after the
books have been adopted, some ether se--ries
of books will be recommended, and
another change urged. This I consider
a groundless fear. The necessity and
advantage of a change would no longer
exist. With a uniformity of the most
approved books in use, no School Com
missioner would find any ground on which
to urge the necessity of a change. Pu
pils and Teachers who would be familiar
with these books, would not desire any
change; and the people who would have
the expense to lose and nothing to gain

If, in the course of time, new books
should be issued which should prove after
a thorough test, to be enough better than
those now selected to warrant the trouble
and expense of a change, then, and not
till then would I favor a deviation from
the standard uniform series. It is to be
expected that some teachers will have
their preferences for some other books
such as they chance to be familiar with
but I trust they will cheerfully waive all
personal preferences for the general
good, and use their best endeavors to se
cure the early adoption, and permanent
use of the standard uniform series rec
In the month of September, choose the
small, white, round onions, take off th
brown skin, have a stewpan of boiling
water ready, and then throw in as many
onions as will cover the top ; as soon as
they look clear cn the outside, take thern
up as quick a3 possible with a slice, and
lay them on a clean cloth, cover them
close with another, and scald some more,
and so on. - Let them lie to be cold, then
put them in a jar, or glass, cr wide-mouthed
bottle, and pour over them the best
white pickling vinegar, just hot, but not
boiling. When cold cover them ; thouU
the outer skin shrivel, peel it off. Th'ey
must look quite clear.
