t Mr. Editor: Do not understand that I am
(opposed to teaching ln-Qtit,'''trtiWlo schools
higher thanthoetomeutoryoi'aiiehes. Indoed
1 am very tunes, lu favor of high schools
supported by the public where our youth
can obtain the highest and finest possible
cultivation mS education. Btit we want the
elementary 'tost, thoroughly, and all the
time spent in attempting more until that Is
accomplisuct la surely wastod. rne course j
ot study lnour publlo scboels should com
prise reading, arithmetic, through the practi
cal, together with mental 'arithmetic, spell
ing and 'defining, writing, book-keeping,
geography, practical grammar, history and';
government of our country, physiology,
music anj drawing. Kvcrystudy here nnm
sd Ia.df ralue, practically-speaking, and pu
pils carefully taken over these subjects dur
ing n-period of seven orsiight years of school
work,".ie prepared to meet every requlre
ruenfflt a business life 'education. If mere
1s desired by any they have a substantial
foundation already commenced and can"cn
ter tho high schools or '"University and build
upont to any altitude they may desire. In
all cakes where elornerttary and high school
.stndk-3 are taught 'by the same teacher
promiscuously in the esme room all in the
same day Jor a week, tenth, quarter oryear
there is unquestionably a waste of time and
labor. The waste arises from Imported
teaching. Young men and ladies fresh'from
College like to teacu'hlgh branches. They
taketnore Interest In -those than they do in
tho"Crst branches and tbo most Important.
When I hear a teacher soy "I have Classes
In reading, elocution, rhetoric, philosophy,
lgei,ra and geometry, lam teaching 'U the
cmin'.ry, have about thirty scholar. My
school is very ictereotiug." 1 always feel
sorry. It may be Interesting to hlm-nnd a
fewcf the largest pupils, but I pity iho little
fellows. Those in tin? first, second and third
readers. If be bestwa equal alteration to all
lio is spreading out his teaching until it Is so
tbinvhat a sheet of tfeouo paper is a'blankut
compared to it. He Is wasting the valuable
time of both the Inrgor and smaller pupils.
He cannot advance thorn permanently. It
is a' literal iinpossibity. If this meets tbo
eye of any teacher in a mixed school in tho
oouutry who has clssscs In those studies, or
any of the blither mien, I ask him to please
talio them back twenty pages in rboir book,
and see how much tbsy know In an off hand
examination. I recommend teachers to try
this. Here is a qealiou I wihh to ask.: It a
boy 01 girl knows nothing about grammir,
is a poor rader and speller, can scarcely
wri'e'a letter of tho simplest kind, and N
studying alyebra, what earthly object can
he haio for studying algebra under thoe
It uould seem propoa'eious to a fanner for
a maffCo say he could plow Hilton acres of
land iu a day with a single team and plow,
whon it is a well known fact that ouellfth oj
that amount mall that could be done well in
that time. The farmer would at once bay,
"Impowiblt ! it can't bedonp. Il he attempts
finch a thing hh plowing iw ill be shallow, a
gnat deal of the ground will bo enthely
itilsst d, the roods of tho weeds will not be
cui, arid the tnt-IV .planted -elfer suUi culltxii

petent Judges of what should be, and what
should not be omitted. Tiny often have
hobbles which they ride to the lastinglnjury
of their classes. One tmoheir loves arrtthme-

subject, carrying bin classes over It like a
whirlwind, diving d.own to Che very bottom
of very principle, no matter Ufc deep It
may be or bow until the minds of tils pupils
are to grasp it, spooding roluaWe'Sme on a
Honseless problem. In compound iproportion,

in ten that seemi to bo se'ttled, and content,
but who are anxious to sell out, tako other
claims, rr leave tbe country. They aro be
coming impationt to got rich, by sharp trad
ing, and stock raising. Indeed, this stock
btisinosa, though rather pleasant aud profit
able, has u demoralizing influence ovor both
youug and old. Wo carao hore, however,
to advance the cause of education, and good

drawback to tbo prosperity of the county,
and that is tbe presence of Indians. They
are a nuitiance, and hold tho best part of the
county from settlement, and any man iu
