MODEL RURAL SCHOOLS.
Methods Pursued fa Berks County,
According to an article In the July
American Magazine, Ell M. Rapp, super
intendent of rural schools in Berks county,
Pennsylvania, - has . made his county
schools a model for the country. His
essential Idea Is that farm children should
be educated for the farm. After report
ing the various improvements which Mr.
Rapp has instituted the author of the
article goes on ;to say:
"There are many other ways in which
Superintendent Rapp has endeavored to
improve the rurar schools of the county,
but none has aroused as much Interest
Tfait is not a mere advertising boast It is a provable fact by our records that we have had students this year from as far east as Clarion, Penn
sylvania; asfaraotcthas Glarksville, Arkansas; as far west as Cripple Creek, Colorado, and as far north as Bathgate, North Dakota.
BOYLES COLLEGE HAS ADVANTAGES THAT HAVE SIMPLY COMPELLED ITS GREAT GROWTH.
The faculty is most undoubtedly one of the most potent causes of its unexampled size. The very best educational institutions of the entire United
States have given us of their best-graduates of Harvard, Drake University, Upper Iowa University, Northern Indiana Normal College, the Indiana
Normal College, Danville Normal College of Hew York, Smithville, Ohio, Normal, Missouri University and other prominent institutions being
included among our faculty.
The prestige and the good wiH of every prominent Omaha business man is most certainly another cause for the unprecedented popularity of this

'Better Housekeeping.' Each year these

is a miniature county fair. The boys show
vegetables, field crops and poultry In

FIVE YEARS IN SCHOOL.
IFtg-ures on the Period tf
The average amount of schooling re
ceived during that period of school life
from the fifth to the eighteenth year of
age in the United States is only a little
more than five years of ten months each,
according to the annual review of edu
cational conditions in this country, just
completed by Dr. F, P. Claxton, United
States commissioner of education, and
printed in the form of a bulletin of the
department. He finds, however, an en
couraging Increase in the number of
high school pupils, amounting to 7 per
cent more than ten years ago.
The average number of days attended
by each child Increased in the first dec
ade of this century by almost 14 per cent.
Nevertheless the average attendance is
only eleven days in the year, or less than
five and three-fourths months. At this
rate the total attendance in the thirteen
years of school life of each child would
be only 1,046 days, or a little more than
five years of ten months each.
The number of public high schools in
this country for the period of 1900-1910 in
creased more than 70 per cent and the
number of high school pupils more than
76 per cent. Nevertheless results are tar
from pleasing to the commissioner of
"It is quite probable," he says, "that
less than half the children of the coun
try finish well more than the first six
grades; only one-fourth of the children
ever, enter the high school; less than
eight In every 100 do the full four years
of high school work, and fewer than five
In 100 receive the high school."

OMAHA, June 30.-To the Editor of The
Bee: June is a d!ig,nful month for
travel. The weary otilce man from the
city thoroughly enjoys a trip into the
country. Seated at a car window, he
gazes out over an expanse of green, and
temporarily-forgets the city its heat and
noise its dust and dirt. Life In its full
ness is all about him; in the very air l.e
breathes, and the voice of nature speaks
to htm. He sees some of the cattle quietly
grazing on the luscious grasses, wh'le
others are. resting contentedly. In the
shade of trees. " .
In the fields, the horses are working,
yet not over-exerted, and evidence the
best of care. Their drivers dressed in
comfort for the work they perform, ap
pear happy and at peace with the world.
The train rushes on past many farm
houses large and roomy, with spacious
lawns. At one there Is a barefoot girl
going toward the barn and swinging a
pan; every movement denoting freedom,
health and naturalness.
The man's eyes travel back to the
"right-of-way," where the wild rose
grow in profusion and are in keeping
with all he has been looking at. He
gives a sigh and a look of sadness omes
over his face as he thinks of the city and
its people back there, and of how differ
ent from the country.
The majority of city homes with their
cramped surroundings; the men . and
women engaged in the different vocations,
frequently deprived of sunlight and pure
air; horses urged to the height , of their
endurance, under a scorching sun and
over rough pavements that of tan give
pain at every hoof beat
Somehow when he comes to the bare
foot girl he associates her with the wild
rose. Perhaps on his desk In the city he
has admired the beautiful, cultivated
rose and enjoyed Its perfume, but he rea
lises now that it lacked something t:at
Its modest little sister, the wild rose, i-os-susses.
The florist may have trlven the
city rose much care and attention, but
the other, down among the grasses, fos
tered by nature, reaches up to greet the
sun and develops color, form and beauty
that excels the cultivated rose.
A closer view would have shown a glow
in the eyes, and on the cheeks of 'he
country girl is a flush like that of the
pink side of a sun-kissed peach. With
nature for her teacher she knows little
If anything of the artificial world, its
habits and ways. She Is indeed a flower
and fit companion for the wild rose that
grows on the "right-of-way." - ,
With a feeling of pity he thinks of the
average ctty girl, whose apparel indicates
discomfort and verges on the lines of
immodesty. Unless thickly powdered, her
features look pale, and she moves with
languor. Circles soon form around her
eyes, the result of meetings on down
town street corners, often as late as mid
night She does not think so, but she
lacks much that the country girl has.
Their pathways of life He far apart and
there's much between. Presumably no
amount of persuasion could change the
life of the one more is the pity but of
the other, may we hope that the will
always follow the lines of nature, and
never know the day that leads to life
under the archlight of a big city.
W. O. TORRE T.
Make Yonr Desire Known.
OMAHA, June 29.-To the Editor of The
Bee: Acting upon the Invitation as set
forth editorially In The Bee recently to
Inform the city commissioners when and
where attention was needed to the streets
or otherwise, your correspondent can say
that in two Instances where the privilege
was exercised prompt response was given
to the request. In less than twenty-four
hours from the filing of information mat
ters complained of were remedied and
eye-sores to a cleaner and better Omaha
completely and satisfactorily removed.
It Is felt that the commissioners desire
to do all that is possible to remedy exist
ing defects. They are not, however,
ubiquitous and must be shown where to
apply their energies. There are many
spots all over Omaha that need the atten
tion of those in authority and the com
missioners, as set forth In The Bee, are
ready to act promptly If the public will
point out to them the particular locality
needing attention. Let every one be a
connoisseur of his surroundings and If
anything is found wrong that the com
missioners can. right give information to
the fountain head and rest in the assur
ance that relief will be promptly forth
Vorsfl-re and Fnra-e.
KENESAW, Neb., June 29.-TO the Edi
tor of The Bee: The situation in Nebraska
politics is peculiar at this time and prob
ably it is not too much to ask our present
governor to show his colors. If Mr. Aid
rich Is a republican he should come out
with it, so we know, how he stands. If
the governor is going to oppose the ticket
nominated by the regular republican con
vention at Chicago, he should state so.
I am only one of the many who wish to
know. We want to know If we are going
to vote for a republican for governor or
some one who belongs to a new party not
as yet named. Some of us are from Mis
souri. Our governor made a mistake by join
ing forces with the other six governors to
defeat President Taft, but we ought to
forgive him if he will Just work for the
Interest of the party nominating him. The
republicans in Nebraska are not all
Roosevelt crazy, but yet .of a forgiving
nature to forget what has been going on
in the past, provided things are mads
right. If the governor wants to go back
to office he had better come across and
let bygones be bygones.
