State School Superintendent J. IL
Ackerman has just returned from an
extended visit to Washington, D. C.
and many eastern points, and tells
the following remarkable story ol
changes In the educational systems ol
the eastern states:
The work In most of the schools
was of a most practical nature, espe
cially was tills true In cooking, sew
ing, shop work, In both wood and
iron, butter and cheese making, the
study of farm machinery and of the
soils, the Judging of stock, the raising
of cereals, engineering and element
ary agriculture . In some Instances,
special attention was attached to ex
tension work in elementary agricul
ture and home economics; we' made
special Inquiry as to the success of
these undertakings and found wher
ever the movement was intelligently
and energetically administered, that
invariably most excellent results were
attained and that all had great faith
la their ultimate success.
The Institutional aim In ' home
economics was, as a rule, that the girl
should on graduation be able to fash
Ion and make her own clothes, even
to a party dress;' be able to prepare
a good meal and serve It properly,!
plan a home so that all furnishings
would harmonize and be comparative
ly Inexpensive this was vnot only the
aim but where the most efficient re
sults were attained the aim was fully
realized. They were doing things,
not reading about them comparative
little theory, but. much practice. In
some schools, much emphasis was
placed on what is termed farm ma
chinery, laboratory work In which the
young men were required to become
thoroughly conversant with the use
andf location of each part of any ma
chine which they are likely to use on
a farm, and is made of the short
courses taught both within the schools
and in different parts of the states.
In many of the shosp the students

A Washington dispatch says:
The leaders of congress have nott- j
fled President Roosevelt that several i
laws which he desires to have enacted i
at this session will not be put through.
A recapitulation shows that when the
session ends congress will probably
have failed to pass many of the most
Important measures recommended by
the president. They are as follows:
Restricting the power of the fed
eral courts in the issuance of injunc
tions in labor disputes: amending the
Sherman anti-trust law so as to es
tablish a system of federal license for
Interstate corporations; to enable the
railroads to form traffic associations
so as to secure greater stability of
rates and returns; to remove some of
the restrictions from combinations and
labor; to prohibit the railroads from
blacklisting union employes; empow
ering 'he interstate commerce com
mission to control future Issues of
stocks and bonds of arllroad property;
to permit the attorney general to
name one of the receivers appointed
for Insolvent railroads; to remove the
duty on wood pulp; to provide for the
construction of tour battleships in
stead of two; to establish postal sav
These are the measures which the
leaders have agreed to put through If
