made in copying from the manuscript.
The blanks for teachers' monthly
report to the Co. Sup't., sent out late
ly, will aid greatly in the closer super
vision of schools, in the use of the
state course of study, and in making
the sohool work uniform and more ef
fective. The first monthly report received
was from Wm. Curry, teacher in Dist.
Do not neglect to read the county
superintendent's Arbor day circular
found in all the Webster county pa
pers this week.
Some good school work for exhibi
tion at our teachers' institute has been
received from Dist No. 13; Minta
Cling, teacher for the winter term.
A good exhibition of scheol work
from the schools of the county, at in
stitute, is desired. A knowledge of
what others have had their pupils do
will be helpful to every teacher.
If school boards would allow their
teachers a day during each term in
which to visit another school, it would
result in good to the schools. Seeing
the mistakes in another's method of
teaching and management as well as
those things in botn worthy of com
mendation would be helpful to teach
ers in improving their own methods.
There is need of more school visita
tion on the part of patrons and mem
bers of school boards.
A teachers' meeting will be held at
Bladen on Saturday, April 23, '92.
The program will be printed in this
column next week.
Any. school news or reports that
teachers wish published ia the educa
tional department will be gladly re
ceived by the editor.
A school officer said to me a short
time ago: 'I believe in keeping a
good teacher in our sohool as long as
she will stay. That is right.
An active, progressive school man
who looks after the best interests of
the district should be kept on the
board as long as he will stay.
The Bole reading circlo fulfilled its
engagement Saturday evening. March
2(ith, and the subjects given in the
program published in the educational
column two weeks ago were well dis
cussed. The program for Saturday evening
April 9th is as follows:

"What a beautiful city!" Cut down
all of the trees, tramp out all of the
grasses from the lawns, and strew the
neatly swept stnats with all sorts of
xubbish, and the expression is immedi
ately changed to, "What an abomina
"What a lovely home!" Chop down
the trees, break down the fences,
smash the windows, and in the place
of glass insert cast-off clothing and
the expression of pleasure becomes,
"What a wretohed place to live!"
What neat fences around our school
grounds, with rows of trees by the
fences, it may be a clump of them
besldcB, with the front of the school
yard changed into a lawn, with the
school house painted and in good re
pairs, with necessary out-buildings as
well kept, with the interior to corre
spond with the exterior, as it certainly
will, the school house and surround
ing grounds will become, not a matter
of pleasuic alone, but of profit for
the silent lesson of beauty and of
culture which they teach; the direc
tion of their educational force will be
reversed, and they will minister to the
innate cravings ot children and pat
rons for the beautiful which is als
the good. The best can be achieved
only under the most favorable condi
tions; the achievement of the utmost
in the direction of man-hood and woman-hood
is that we wish
for our boys and girls
who, in a short time, are to "con
stitute the state." Take our boys
and gitls the hopo of the Nation
out, and there is little left worth liv
All men profess to wish that their
children may be educated. This
means that every faculty, every power,
eycry worthy desire and taste and am
bition of the children may be devel
oped and directed and satisfied.
To this end has the observance of
Arbor Day in Nebraska, the state of
its origin, whence it has spread to
many other states of the Union, been
given a place in the schools.
The echool exercises appropriate to
the day, recitations, song.", readings,
essays, historical and- scientific in
struction, associated with the planting
of trees, shrubs, vines and seeds on
the school grounds in the interest of
and participated in by, the children
and parents, who should as far as pos
sible be urged to be present and to
take part, are necessarily educational.
1 therefore suggest and urge upon
county and citv superintendents, ti'ach
ers, parents and pupils of the state that
a part of 'Arbor Day" be devoted by
the school to the planting of trees,
vines shrubs and seds, accompany
ing the planting with such exercises
as may be instructive and impressive
in their character with a view to beau
tifying the school grounds and at the
same time teanhing the lessons of
beauty and of the uses ot beauty.
I make uo suggestions as to songs,
selections, or subjects for essays for
the day, for there is so much material
everywhere which the intelligent
teacher may secure for use that such
a suggestion seems to me to "beJ un
necessary. I am told that the North
Westtrn Journal of Education con
tains a program and some exercises
fitted for the day.
I hope founty superintendents will
see that this circular is published in
every local paper in the state, thus
giving it a wide spread circulation and
enlisting the press actively in this as
in other educational measures.
