Repert et Boek Committee.
Mr. Erisman, of the. book coemmittee,
read a written report as fellows :
Te the Members etlie Lancaster Scheel ISetird:
The book committee, would recemmeni
that the same text books heretofore in
use in the public schools be retained, with
the exception of McClintock & Cook's
First Greek book, and would recommend
that White's Greek Lessens with Eastman's
Greek Grammar be substituted, and also
that Brooks's Nermal Primary de used in
the primary schools in place of Brooks's
E. J. Eki-uiax,
W. A. Wilsen,
J. M. Johnsten.
Mr. Erisman stated fliat the proposed
change in the Greek text book was urged
by Mr. Glever, teacher of Greek and Latin
in the boys' high school, who regarded
White's Greek Lessens far superior te Mc
Clintock's and Cook's. The change in the
arithmetic for the primaiy schools is rec
ommended because only twenty-six pages
of the Nermal mental arithmetic new in
use are adapted te the primary sehoels
the same book being used in the secondary
and high schools.
Mr. Eberly moved te strike from the
committees, report all except the clause
proposing the substitution of the Greek
lessens and the primary Arithmetic. He
said his reason for making the motion was
that if the report as presented be adopted
as a whole, the beard can make no change
in any of the books new in use for three
years te come.
After a debate participated in by Messrs.
Spurrier, Baker. Jehnsen, Brosius, Wilsen
and the president, Mr. Spurrier moved te
postpone the further consideration of the
book committee's report until the report of
the City Superintendent be heard.
City Superintendent's Repert.
City Superintendent Buehrle presented
and read his report te the beard, as fol fel
Te tJic Beard of Scheel Directors :
Gentlkmen The city superintendent
desires te present as his first monthly re
port an outline of a course of study for the
pupils of the lower grades of the public
schools. It is of course understood that
much ought net and can net wisely be at
tempted at this early stage of his official
career in your midst, when the shortness
of the time he has been with you has pre
vented his understanding your system of
public instruction te an extent sufficient
te justify him in proposing great changes.
Nevertheless, as the object of the entire
system is the proper education of the chil
dren of the city se far as this can be effect
ed by the schools, and as the lower grades
arc the most important, embracing, as they
de, the greatest number of pupils, and es
pecially since all true progress must begin
below, where the foundation is laid, these
schools have claimed and received his first
attention ; and with a view te their im
provement in that direction which is most
pressing just new, namely, the character
of the instruction there imparted, he would
recommend the adoption of the following
course of study for the primary and sec
Here fellows a tabulated course of
study for the special guidance of teachers
of primary and secondary schools, the sev
eral branches being carefully graded for
each of the six classes, commencing with
object lessens and continuing with alpha
bet, spelling, reading, writing, drawing,
arithmetic, geography, grammar, natural
history, &c., with frequent dictation les les
eons, reviews, &c. i
Inte this scheme nothing of deubtfu
value has been admitted ; attention has
been given mainly te these subjects which
have been acknowledged as standards and
te them has been added only se much from
the realms of science as would serve te
give variety te what would otherwise be
dry and monotonous. Experience has
proved that the nature of the child de
mands this ; that, if confined te one or two
branches, its progress even in these will be
retarded rather than accelerated ; that te
be a geed reader, Jfer instance, requires
knowledge obtained by the study of ether
branches, and the same law holds geed
also for ether studies. The mind as well
as the body is se constituted as te demand
different kinds of feed for its perfect de
velopment. Te vary their reading lessens,
therefore, Hoeker's "Child's Boek of Na
ture," than which no better substitute for
the ordinary reader is te be found, has been
introduced into the course te be used occa
sionally in addition te, but net te the ex
clusion of the regular reading book. Te
reduce the expense from this source te a
minimum, it is recommended that a sup
ply of these books be purchased for each
grade by the beard, and be given te the
children only when they are about te read
from them, but at all ether times te be in
the care of the teachers. The study of
English grammer, as such, has been post
poned' te the two highest grades in the
secondary schools, and in its stead, and as
an introduction te it, lessens in the use of
language, oral and written, have been in
serted. This step seems te be demanded both by
the practical spirit of the times and by a
rational system of education. In the
course of nature, art everywhere precedes
science ; man acts before he sits down te
philosophize about his actions ; he speaks
before he discovers and studies the laws of
speech. The text book for the use of the
teachers who are te impart these language
lessens will of course also be purchased by
the beard, which is the rule new in force
in regard te the books used by the teachers
in the school room. Fer reasons given
above. Hoeker's first book in Physiology
and Hoeker's Natural History has been
added te the course, thus introducing the
pupils by easy gradations te the severer
study of the sciences which await them in
the high school. Te teach pupils te apply
their knowledge of arithmetic and pen
manship, the course in the latter has been
graded, and the study of book keeping has
been substituted for it in the highest grade
of the male secondary schools. Lessens
in dictation and composition have been in
cluded, and will necessitate the purchase,
en the part of each pupil, of a blank book
in which te write them. Ne doubt the
necessity for paying greater attention te
writing both as regards form and content
is se evident te all as te render anything
that might be advanced in regard te it en
tirely superfluous. Se many of the chil
dren of the common people, the great mid
dle classes, are obliged te bring their
scholastic career te a close very early that
it was thought, the beginnings of science
which new se largely permeates every de
partment of life, the essentials of English
composition and the elements et book
keeping should be taught in these grades.
Music and German presenting greater
difficulties, and being in charge of special
teachers, no change affecting tham has been
thought necessary or prudent at this time.
Ne additional books will be required in
the primary grades, but the substitution
of Brooks's Nermal Union Arithmetic,
Part I., for Nermal Mental,new used in the
highest grade of the primary schools would
be a real been te them. The Nermal Men
tal, prepared as it was for normal schools,
is net adapted te our primary grades, for
the pupils of which, the Nermal Union
affords abundant and suitable examples in
both written and mental arithmetic.
Te afford variety of reading matter, te
supply suitable subject matter for oral iu iu
stiuctien, and te render the study of ge
ography easier and mere attractive, the
first text book used in that science is te be
used at first as a reading book, se that its
language may become familiar and intelli
gible, before it is required te be systemat
ically studied and committed te memory.
Object lessens partially graded have been
laid down for every class, and all the les
sons te be given have been indicated both
as te kind and extent with the understand
ing that these limits shall operate as a
check only te prevent one-sided develop
ment, te serve as a guide te the teacher,
and te aid in systematizing the work.
Grades are established te promote, and
they will net be allowed te retard progress.
But the mere definitely the work of the
teacher is prescribed, the greater is the
probability that it will be done, and the
easier it is te judge correctly of the teach
er's efficiency. It will readily be seen that
the course is complete in itself, for all
these who are unable te pursue their stu
dies further; and at the same time it lays a
geed foundation for an additional super
structure for such as have the time and
means te erect it.
In conclusion, it ought te be understood
that this course is only tentative, rather te
be aimed at than realized at once. It
may net be possible te carry it into effect
new in all its extent, but it is well te have
an object in view toward which te strive,
better work and greater progress will be
Te de the most successful teaching, the
best mcllieds of presenting the subject, as
well as of governing and managing a
school must be well understood. Te aid
the teachers in acquiring these methods,
which your superintendent understands te
be his duty prescribed m the law creating
the office, he would prefer te call the
teachers together frequently at the begin
ning of the term, and less often toward
the close, for the purpose of giving them
instruction in the art of teaching. Such
an arrangement will be most advantageous
te them, and most convenient for him, as
tl.e closing months are always the most
crowded with work. In accordance with
this view, he intends te call meetings of
the teachers for this purpose, for several
days immediately preceding the epcuing
of the schools in September.
R. K. Buehule,
D. G. Baker, esq., moved that se much
of the city superintendent's report as pro
posed changes in government of the schools
be referred te the special committee en
rules, and that these parts proposing a
change of text books be referred te the
book committee, aud that when the beard
adjourn it be te Thursday, August 19, te
hear the reports of the above named com
mittees. The motion was agreed te.
Mr. Morten presented the following

A Strange Story.
A Rival te Tanner.
The most serious and interesting letter
received by Dr. Tanner since he began
his fast was that which came from a young
lady of New Orleans. Sue did net give
her name, but gave reference by which,
she said, the truthfulness of her strange
story could be easily ascertained. The
letter was as fellows :
"I am of Austrian descent, 27 years of
age. of medium height, a blonde, the third
child of my parents, weigh 107 pounds, and
have never been sick in bed. My mother
died giving birth te me, and my father,
who had never been sick, died when I was
17. When I was 16 my eldest sister, who
had been married a little less than a year,
died in child-bed. At this time I was at a
bearding school 200 miles from home.
When the sad news reached me I went into
a fit of weeping and lamentation that alarm
ed the whole institution. This stormy grief
finally subsided into meaning aud lasted six
days,during which I could neither swallow
solids nor liquids of any description. My
teachers, by alternate coaxing and scold
ing, tried te induce me te take feed ; but
finding that I really could net, and fearing
te have me die en their bauds, scut me
home. On my arrival there my step
mother made borne remarks that made me
very angry. This seemed te restore my
appetite, and I began eating immediately.
1 was surprised that my father also had
been unable te take foetl, but he had been
drinking beer, always his favorite bever
age, daily. In a few weeks I returned
te school. Before the end of the year
another sister, the only one I then had,
died in the same manner as the ether.
My father thought it bust te conceal her
death from me. He had net recovered his
spirits since the death of my eldest sister,
aud when this one was taken gave up en
tirely, and died of grief in two weeks.
during which time he took no foetl.
On finding myself thus doubly atllictcd
and entirely an orphan, I did net, as en
the previous occasion, indulge in wild
weeping. I cannot better describe my feel
ings than by saying that I could feel my
heait sink, sink, within me, and see all my
hopes ( I was then, and am new, much
given te castle building ) of future happi
ness in life vanish instantly and entirely.
Then for seven days it was utterly impos
sible for me te take feed or drink of any
kind. All this time I did net shed a tear,
but moaned and moaned. I began en the
seventh day te feel a numbness and a
strange drowsiness steal ever me. I think
I should have died just as my father died
had net my teachers, knowing me te be
tee weak te journey home, bent for my
step mother. The sight of her brought te
my mind recollections efpastinjuries done
te myself and my sisters, and at once my
anger, and with it my strength, began te
te revive. Then I craved feed and took it
without further difficulty.
Last winter I became engaged te a young
man, but two weeks before the appointed
time for our marriage I discovered a flaw
in his moral character. Knewing thatlevc
en my part would henceforth be impossi
ble, and marriage without it is miserable.
I determined te extricate myself as best I
might. Dreading a quarrel, which prob
ably would have resulted in the death of
some one, I concluded that te disappear
quietly would be best. I made the discov
ery en a Wednesday evening the last time
I cither saw or tasted feed until the fol
lowing Tuesday evening and accordingly
en JUenday morning 1 walked te a village
eight miles distant; but, finding that I
could net conceal myself there, I walked
back home te provide myself with the
means of going where I could. Before dark
I walked four miles of the distance which
is twenty-five te the city where I in
tended taking the beat te conic here.
The night being very dark, I could net
proceed en my way, se I climbed a tree, en
a limb of which, about ten feet from the
ground, I sat all night. In the morning,
after I had walked a few miles, it began te
storm and rain, as I wickedly thought,
most unmercifully. Seeing a bridge near
by, I ran and sought shelter under it, aud
finding a comparatively dry place, tin a
rising of the bank of the stream, I sat
there all day. At night, fearing snakes or
whatever else might lurk in se horribly
dismal a place, I again sought refuge up a
tree, where, tired and very sleepy, I spent
the night miserably. At daybieak I con
tinued en my way and reached my
journey's end at dusk. Ne beat going my
way I went te a hotel, took a room, aud
slept soundly all night. In the morning 1
went down te the wharf beat, where I sat
in a kind of stupor and almost motionless,
and waited until Monday morning, when
my beat arrived and I went aboard.
Net having money enough with me te
pay the full price of the passage, and wish
ing te conceal myself as much as possible,
I determined net te take any feed until I
should reach this city (five days journey),
aud would have kept my resolution had
net the kind officers, one of whom esie
cially I shall always remember with grati
tude, had feed sent te my room en Tues
day evening, and at every meal time after
ward. On arriving in this city I sold the little
jewelry I had, and with the money rented
a furnished room, for which I paid in ad
vance. I had $1 left, and with it bought
bread a five cent leaf as long as it lasted.
When my last nickel and I were about te
part company I held solemn counsel with
myself as te whether I had better te lay it
out in something else that would last longer
than bread. Finally I hit upon salt, and
in it invested at once my nickel. Se after
having lived nearly three weeks en bread
and water, I new lived eight days en salt
and water, and should probably have done
se much longer had net just then a posi
tion been offered me, which I gladly ac
cepted. I forget te say that during my salt and
water fast (eight days and some hours) I
was in perfect health and excellent spirits.
Fer reading I succeeded in borrowing
Burns, and thoroughly winnowed him,
"Jelly Beggars" and all for consolation.
