State Normal School.
Peru, Neb., Sep. 25th, 1SG9.
Friend Church : Permit me through
your columns to tender the thanks of
the faculty of the Normal School to
the publishers of Worcester's Diction
aries for the valuable present of a copy
of the large quarto ; also for three doz.
copies of Hilliard'8 Fifth Readers, for
the uso of the Normal class, and a
number of Worcester's Comprehen
sive Lexicons, at half price to teach
ers. The Normal School received, at the
commencment of the present term, a
very liberal donation from the firm
of A. S. Barnes & Co., iu the shape of
school books. That firm has mani
fested a spirit of liberality toward us
truly praiseworthy. They have given
not less than $200 worth of school
books to our institution.
Wo think if other publishing houses
maifested the same spirit our Normal
School will have advantages here,
We hope to receive copies of all the
book3 recommended by our State Su-
pcrintendant,for,if those books are go
ing into general use in the State, our
students should form their acquaint

The School Book question.
Mr. Editor. I have been a care
ful reader of what has been written on
this subject, and will, with your con
sent add a few words.
First , The State proposes a system
of Education. Of this system the
State University, the Normal School,
and every district school should con
stitute a part.
Sedoud, "In order to carry out any
system it is necessary that tho text
books used should conform to the sys
tem. Third, To produce the uniformity
which is hero implied, there must be
some authority to define the text books
used, and to designate the system. '
By our School law it has been
made the duty, not of Boards of Edu
cation, County Sup'ts, Teachers, Par
ents or Pupils to define these Books,
but of the State Superintendent.
The real question of issue is, shall
we recognize the authorities of law or
not? If we reject the recomendation
of the State Sup't we have no other
authority, and any pupil may take any
book he pleases, and School Director
or Teacher is powerless to forbid its
The rejection of the list, it seems to
me, establishes a bad precedent. The
plea for its rejection is that Mr. Deals
is an appointee. He Is the only real
authority. An elected officer could
be invested with no higher power in
this respect than he, and the teacher
who pleads for the violation of the
law, is not the person to whom ought
to be entrusted the Education of the
children of the commonwealth.

The various tectioiu of the "C'ori

make such a grand time of it without

tees of reception and management

our California friends will probably bo
the event of tho week as the various
conventions and associations have con
cluded their sittings. The Episcopal
ian Convention for the Diocese of Illi
nois was in session nearly all last week.
Tho number and highstandiug of the
delegates, and the Interest they repre
sented rendered the gathering a very
important one. Considerable time
was spent in bemoaning tho recent
events that have happened ia the
Church, and listening to the com
plaints of Bishop Whitehouse, but 011

Tho Text Booli Question.
Having recently conversed with
Superintendent of public Instruction,
and learned something of his general
plan, allow me to say he impresses,
ine as a good man for the place. IIo "
ha3 a system well defined an-.h well
chosen, and in selecting school books
he has sought to meet tho necessities
of that s.Vbtem. I think, however, ho
his made some mistakes. His list
maybe the very best that could bo
made out but there is this otjc tion
to it, that'it is almost entirely new
and requires h larjo expenditure by
tho parents of the State in substituting
the new for the oM. Would It not
have been well for Mr. Beals to have
consulted more widely the friends cf
education in the Stale ? - By calling
together county Superintendents and
leading teachers and friends of educa
tion, and laying his plan before them,
and ascertaining their vlewa and
wishes, a lit might have been selected
that would have secured universal ac
ceptance. Even if the law docs give
the Superintendent thejowerto de
fine text book3 wouM not such a
course have been wise? Would not
such a consultation, even now, be a
means of securing what will not oth
erwise" be secured, uniformity as to'
text books ? Mr. Beals docs not w ish
to attempt impossibilities nor imprac
ticabilities. He is an earnest friend
of general education. He would rath
er modify his special action than ivo-'
up what he is conscious to be tho Let
general plan. -Itinof great importance;
that the Stato have one list o tt;xfc
books. 'But in this country- Wo aro so
jealous of one man's power no law
can enable an individual to introduce
such a Bit against matured judgemunt
of many of the most carnost friends of
common schools. It U a serious mat
ter to retain uniformity at the lest,,
and it can only be done by cnlLing
tho hearty sympathy of all the Waging
friends of such reform. W ciU tc
satisfied that tho best list j-j aUmt to.
