Freeborn county teachers Are taught by experienced teachers. Addresses on the Rural school High school Academy agricultural school and College Edify and inform a Large number of teachers at the regular meeting of the Freeborn county teachers association. The Freeborn county teachers association held its regular meeting at the High school room saturday afternoon june 5th. The Large representation of county teachers was due in a great measure to the excellent program on which appeared the names of some of the most experienced instructors in the state and there were expressions of enthusiastic anticipation on the faces of the audience As pres. Olsen arose to announce the program. In a few appropriate remarks he expressed his pleasure at again meeting with the teachers of the county and thanked the executive committee for their excellent program. The first number was a paper a the Rural school written by miss Tagna Thorkildson but in miss Thork Ibison s absence it was read by miss Anna met Hura. The paper emphasized the vital importance of a teacher being familiar with with the Best methods of instruction for the get was no time to be lost in the country where a was soon As a boy is tall enough to reach the plow handles. He is generally Given an Opportunity to reach them and As soon As a girl is Large enough to Wash dishes she is too often kept at Home. The palier dwelt with considerable length on the plan of encouraging pupils to read and pointed to Abraham Lincoln As an example where a poor boy with Only the advantages of a Rural education had Arisen from a lowly sphere through his fondness for Reading to be worthy of the most exalted position that his country could offer. A the High school by w. J. Schmitz was the next entertaining feature of the meeting and the subject was treated by the professor in his characteristic Able manner. He said a the first and great object of education is to discipline the mind a Ami. Referring to the importance of High school training Quot it is in the period of transition from childhood to manhood and womanhood that the High school receives the the the professor called attention to the great importance of Reading and believed a that the works of Standard authors and English classics should be Given a prominent place in the curriculum of every High he further stated that one of the great objects of tile High school should Lee to lit the pupils so that All who desire the advantages of a higher education might be prepared to enter unconditionally the Best College in the land. That another great object was to inspire the students with the desire to have a def finite aim in life. In closing he said a do Good and you will never be forgotten your name and deeds will be written As legibly on the hearts you leave behind As the stars on the brow of evening. Prof. E. O. Kaasa read a paper on the a private Academy and demonstrated in a comprehensive manner. The line of work in which an Academy was most efficient. In speaking of academic work he stated a it would be expecting much from any one system were we to look to that alone for All the education of All our youth. The work of education deals with Man and Man is too varied in prejudice taste and ability to be successfully educated by any one system. A the professor thought that the High school was not pliable and versatile enough to Supply the innumerable branches that the Public seemed to require. For example a Large numbers of Young folks especially in the Rural districts find themselves As a result of neglecting the District schools grown up without knowing arithmetic enough to compute the value of a Basket of eggs without using their fingers As and with this class of students he believed the Academy could do More efficient work than the High school. A in closing he said a there must be no antagonism Between our Public and private secondary schools. They Are similar enough to allow each to exert All its Powers without trespassing on the Domain of the other. Rivalry there May be but of that Beneficent variety which spurs each on to greater exertion towards perfection. The a agricultural colleges was the subject of a most entertaining address by prof. Robertson of the state University. Ile said a i know a great Many of you think that we get the Young men and the Young women we Are going to get up there to hold the plow to milk etc., and then you ask yourselves the question How can they plow and drag in the Winter time. It has been a common theory that a Man who failed in All other business could go to farming and make a Success but this is a mistake and i will Endeavor to show you that agriculture comprises All of the sciences. We have an agricultural College and a school of agriculture and it is the Only one of the kind in the state. Our school year commences october 5 and ends the first of april. There is no tuition and the students expenses Are limited to the actual Cost of Board which has never exceeded ass per year. With the exception of Stillwater our institution is the Only one in the state that does not charge for room rent. Any Pupil who comes to us with a common school education can finish the course in three Winters. I find that the pupils from Rural districts Are More Apt to be deficient in language and Rammer than other the professor referred to the catalogue and explained the subjects taken up by the students in the respective terms of the school year and closed by inc Dently mention Long that Freeborn county had at present the Only lady student in the institution. Prof. C. F. Koehler of the Mankato state Normal school a next introduced and discussed the subject of Normal schools. He said a i heard when i left my Home in the East there was continuous fighting Between the Public and Normal schools and that sometimes the county superintendent was on one Side and sometimes on the other but generally on the prof. Koehler spoke in complimentary terms of tin Iii client work of the agricultural College. He said. A the Academy has claimed its place for sometime in the educational world the Rural school is firmly established but the agricultural school is a new thing and needs help and advertising. The Normal is not an Academy a High school or a College but simply a school to train teachers. You will find in the Normal course pedagogical and psychological subjects. We have Twenty three rooms where Pupil teach hers Ara Given training under the supervision of four critic teachers and a superintendent. We must of necessity do some experimental work and we have a place where we Bury exploded theories. Students at dental or medical colleges do not receive the practice but the fundamental principles and it is the same with the Normal schools which strive to give their students the fundamental principles of the Hest methods of teaching. A second Grade certificate is the requirement to admission in the c class. If a candidate for admission to the c class is not provided with a second Grade certificate he or she May be admitted ome Tai i t i i 111� 1111 Mer pee oils tuesday june in.

By taking examinations in arithmetic geography and Grammer if their standing is sixty but if at any time the faculty decide that this Elas of pupils cannot do the work in a satisfactory manner they Are advised to go elsewhere and make the necessary preparations. High school passes in the c class studies will not be honoured by the examining Board. The summer term commences july i and tuition is free to All who pledge themselves to teach two years in the state after the course is completed. Any Pupil who fails to fulfil the agreement of the pledge will be called upon to pay the tuition. There Are eight terms in each year and the work has been so arranged that teachers May attend a term and teach a term and on returning take up the work where it was left off. The last number on the program was a the colleges by miss Ella Young. She said a a College is a place of higher education of men or women or men and women. I realize that there is no fighting ground in educational lines until the College is reached and Many contend that a College course is not absolutely necessary but it is evident that it is highly miss Young called attention to the preference that was Given College graduates by almost every institution in making its selection of teachers. She earnestly advised All students while at College to join club especially the literary and debating clubs As this would give them practice in Par i in ii tary usages anti every Man or woman should be competent to gracefully preside Over any meeting. Attention was called to the social life of the College where in Many cases it is the students first Opportunity to get in touch with the world. Reference was made to the picturesque location of most colleges their Good books their Beautiful paintings anti with these pleasant surroundings the students must certainly be inspired with an appreciation of a the Good the Beautiful and the True. A in closing the speaker said a Don t go to a College that is Eay to stay in but go to one that will make you work and above All remember that it is better to attend a Small College with a big Man than a big College with a Small Man. President Olsen stated that he did not think it advisable to discuss the subjects that had been so ably treated but thought that it would be better to adjourn with the splendid principles that had been set Forth fresh in the memory of each than to endanger them to the confusion of argument.
