A Dressea on the Rural school Milch 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 teacher a 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 Nome of the most experienced instructors in the state Anil 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 Corni Nitice for their excellent program. The first number was a Puper Quot the Rural school written by miss Ragna Thorkildson but in miss Thorkild soul a absence it was read by miss Anna met hum. The paper emphasized the vital importance of a teacher being familiar with with the Best methods of instruct Ion. For there was no time to be lost in the country where a was soon As ahoy 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 the paper dwelt with considerable length Oil the plan of encouraging pupils to read and pointed to Abraham Lincoln As an example where a poor boy with Only the advantage of a Rural education had Arisen from a lowly sphere through his fondness for Reading to in worthy of the most exalted position that his country could offer. The High school by in j. Schmitz was the next entertaining feature of the meeting and the subject want 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 and referring to the importance of High school training Quot it is in the period of transition from childhood to manhood Aud womanhood that the High school receives the the the professor called attention to the great importance of Reading and believed a 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 the High school should is to lit the pupils so that All who desire the advantages of a higher education might be prepared to enter unconditionally the i a St College in the land. That another great object was to inspire the students with the desire to have a definite aim in life. In closing in said a do Good and you will never by 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. In aus read a paper on the a private Academy Quot Anil demonstrated in a comprehensive manner the line of work in which an Academy was most efficient. In speaking of academic work he stated Quot 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 in successfully educated by any one 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 Quot 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 in closing he said Quot 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 College was the subject of a most entertaining address by prof Robertson of the state University. In said a i know a great Many of you think that we get the Young men Aud 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 Ami i will Endeavor to show you that agriculture comprises All of the science s. 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 student s expenses an limited to tin actual Cost of Board which has never exceeded she per year. With tin 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 Gram Mer 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 Aud closed by inc Dently mentioning that Freeborn county Hail at present the Only lady student in the institution. Prof. C. F. Koehler of tin Mankato state Normal school was next introduced anti discussed the subject of Normal schools. He said Quot i heard when i left my Home in the East there was continuous fighting Between the Public Aud Normal schools and that sometimes the county Suju a intendant was on one Side and sometimes on the other but generally on the prof. Koehler spoke in complimentary terms of the efficient work of the agricultural College. He said a the Academy a claimed its place for sometime in the educational world the Rural school is firmly established hut the agricultural school is a new thing and needs help urn advertising. The Normal is Notan Academy a High school or a College but simply a school to train teachers. You will find in the Normal course pedagogical Aud psychological subjects.

The last number on tile program was Quot the College a by miss Kila Young. She said 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 i 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. Sin earnestly advised All students while at College to join clubs especially the literary and debating clubs As this would give them practice in parliamentary usages and every Man or woman should be competent to gracefully preside Over any meeting. Attention was called to tins Ltd Ial life of the College where in Many cases it is tin student s first Opportunity to get in touch with the world.

President Olsen stated that he did not think it advisable to discuss the subjects that Hail been so ably treated but thought that it would in better to adjourn with the splendid principles that had been set Forth fresh in the memory of each than to it endanger them to the confusion of argument.
