TO TEACH FARMIM0.
A New Study far Common School Course
Salem The teaching of tlte elements
of argkulture in the common school
of Oregon b advocated by Sumrinten
dent of IuWk Imtruction J. II. Acker
man. The purpwe of tlte introduction
of this study would not be to teach
the children the technical side of scien
tific farming, but rs titer to give tltem
an undet standing of such elementary
facts and principle as every rsoi
nho resides in an agricultural country
should know. Superintendent Acker
maH believes that at some future time
such a study should be placed in the
common school course, ami that before
the teaching of this branch is rom
mewed, time should ta given for the
teachers to prepare for the work they
will be required to do. He would have
erery applicant for a teacher's certill
