42 instructors of all grades, which
is in the projtortion of one instructor
to less than nine students. A dire
ful study of the legister shows that
while the University is largely de
voted to technical branches, the cul

liticul economy, and philosophy form
quite a large part of tliecun iculuin.
Abuudant oportunity for practical
work is afforded in the physical,

and in the summer schools in Civil
and Mechanical Engineering. The
literary and classical courses are also
well equipped.

Teach County History.
Kroia I'liiltt. Iniiilrcr, Murcli, itx.
The Iicbanon Daily News com
inends The Inquirer's efforts to in
duce the school authorities through
out the Stilt; to teach more State
and county history that is now taught
in the public schools of even the
niot progressive couutics. "Those,"
it says, "who are at the head of ed
ucational affairs in this city and
county cannot begin too soon pre
paring a course of study having this
v .
object in view, in no otber way
can the boys and girlsof our country
become familiur with its history and
its geography as well.
This is true, not alone oi Ixlan-
on county bat of every county in
the State. It is a singular fact that
in many of the interior counties not
a line of local . history is taught.
The daily and weekly newspapers
far in advance of the authorities
whose duty it is to insure useful ed
ucati6irto the' young print from
time to time chapters of the politi
cal, military and social past ot their
localities, but the schools, ' the os
tensible teachers, do nothing I , Th
Historical Societies are doing a good
work in many places among the
adult population, but it is naturally
confined almost wholly to adults;
Every publio school in the State
ought to have a county history as
a daily text book.
