To Do This Son* School! Teach Farm
Arithmetic, Farm Geography and;
Text-Books in Agricultuxa—Va-
nous Other Moaiit Used
Washington.. Dec. 12.—"Country I
cihildren should be taugiht in terms of ;
country life,'' declares W. T. Hodges, i
in a bulletin just iseued by the United
States Bureau of Ednwation.
Ia omJer to discover some of the
definite things that have been done iu
rural public schools toward iafusing
into both parentß aud bujwls the '' stav
on-the-farm'' spirit, Mr. Hoilgee sent
3,500 letters to superintendents
throughout the country who have rural !
schools under their sa(>ervisio®. .Prom
the rejuLies many of special j
value have been received.
"Farm arithmetic, farm geography!
and text-books in agriculture," have
been secured by Berks county, Pa., |
Newton county, Mo., lias succeeded iu
maiknag the school a community by |
having work done to supptemeox that
done at home and by inducing patronaj
to visit the schools. The latter is ac-1
complished by the "old farm wagon j
and bo.g dinner'' plan, whereby as
many as 2,000 persons in the conrmu
nitv hav* visited on« school on a eer-:
tain day in the year.
A teacher of Warren county, Ind., i
who gave her pupils the '' option of i
work in agriculture or Virgil" was'
astonished to find that in practically
every instance the students took both j
subjects, and the grades rose beyond
anything before experienced.
"We have improvised domestic sci
ence teaching by means of coal oil
stoves and kitchen utensils which the
i patrons of the school gave through a
I ' kitchen shower,''' says an enthu
! siastdc teacher from Chester township, I
10. A teacher who was not a gradu- j
ate in domestic science twit who had |
i'' grit and determination'' put the girls |
| of this school to work in preparing j
hot lunches which were sold at a few I
! cents. A varied menu was provided.
Plainville township, Conn., selects
i one school in each village and makes
i! of it "a model school," to demonstrate
j what a rural school under ordinary
! conditions may become. The result has
| been that the standard in all the
! schools in the county has been elevat
In Carolina county, Md., lantera
, slide views contrasting the best and
j poorest agricultural and domestic con
• ditions are used to good effect.
Summing up the results of his in-
I vestigation, Mr. Hodgcis deularos:
i "The letters received reveal improve-1
! ment everywhere in the schools for
j country chiklren. There is a feeling
| that the country child will be best edu- j
I caited for whatever life he may lead,;
whether in the city or in the country, j
if taught in tenns of country life. The
movemrtnt toward this is nation wide, j
j Country school houses are used to |
i some extent as civic centers in all i
| States of the Union. No speoiaJ feature
ot' rural school work is confined to any I
one State or section. The home project
! method of teaching agriculture, used
i in Massachusetts, is ah*) used in Lou
: isatia, Wisconsin and other t*t«tes.
' Boys' and giris' agricultural clubs are
I found in atmoct every State in the

You know croup is dangerous. And.
i you should also know the sense of se
curity that comes from always having
Foley's Honey and Tar Compound in
the house. It cuts the thick mucus and!
i clears away the phlegm, stops the

breathing and quiet sleep. Take it for !

coughs. Contains no opiates. Every
