A Campaign to improve the facilities for heating ventilating lighting and sanitation in Rural schools is being made by the United states department of education and the various state universities. In speeches letters and bulletins the agents of the government Are waging ceaseless War against the conditions which Breed disease and Dwarf the minds of children says the Kansas City Star. Or. M. P. Ravenel of the University of Missouri said recently the difficulty is not so much to furnish enough heat As to furnish with warmth an adequate Supply of fresh air children Are cooped up within fairly tight rooms for five or six hours a Day at a period when they Are grow ing and need every advantage for the development of their minds and bodies. One great and common fault in schools is the uneven distribution of heat. The children near the red hot stove Are too hot while those a Little farther away Are too cold. With heat it is necessary to fur Nishen abundant Supply of fresh air since in breathing the air becomes rapidly poisoned with our own excretions and loses its life giving proper ties. The advantages of fresh air Are readily seen in the so called open air schools which were devised and put into operation for children suffering from tuberculosis. The average country school a necessarily heated by stoves. The red hot stove which Burns Coal give off injurious gases to the room. In such utter fat prices Are considerably higher than in Eastern Are nearer climate is water is purer and the Rich Virgin soil produces More and better fodder. Thousands of acres of Ideal pasture land at Small Cost. The local demand for Dairy products is greater Supply. The St. Paul Road 9 recently has in a most convincing manner demonstrated its Faith in the future of Montana expending Over in electrifying its main line across the state. This mighty achievement will prove a most important Factor in the future development of the resources and opportunities of this vast new industries creating larger markets and generally improving living conditions. Electrification has also greatly in creased the pleasure of smoke cinders and other annoyances unavoidable with steam traction.
