Yours g. A. R the following letter was kindly furnished Lis by Bro. Burdick at or. Corlett s request last week but was too late for publication tit Tel Ai we have subscribers riot Reading the review we publish it this week. la feb. 27, 1884.-we got tinder Way from Over the River for Jennings at 1 o clock p. Nr., arriving Here at $ 3q o clock p. M. Passed through some of Iko finest country that we Ever saw a in a siae of Tho poorest. Soori after leaving new Orleans to came to a a Ray Large cab Bage Fields and at labour Che 52 Miles from now Orleans the Corn sugar Cane Oats Etc. Were up. At Bayou Sala 05 Miles from n. O., Fine Rice and Cane plantations. At Franklin 100 Miles from new or leans is Boi Jio very Fino country. Beach Trees blossoming freely. At bold win 105 Miles from new Orleans somewhat neglected some Tine lands to ure told can be had Here but to Wero not Able to got the prices. Near Raceland Between labour Che and now Orleans there is a. Line looking Bottom Laud which 1 think would come under the classification that of the Best tilled in the state. These lands lie East and West of Raceland. During the afternoon to saw hundreds of plows and harrows at work on Fine plantations nearly All handled by negroes. Very Plantation looked like a villages there being Twenty to Twenty live houses for the hands surrounding each of the planter s mansions. Night overtook us at Vermilli Onsville 144 Miles fit m now Orleans.

Now after Paite it waiting and constant planting the wed is beginning to show growth the kindergarten system borrowed from the. Germans and which has been quite generally introduced int our cities was tie entering wedge the Kitchen gardens wore another. The private classes Ai Long this wealth for Wood carving for modelling in Clay for hammering brass and for Many other handicrafts inclining More to Tho Fino arts perhaps than to the More homely trades formed other wedges to make Way for the re guru teaching of the Root tar trades in our Public schools Widich is now As we read the signs of Tho Timos to become Tho greatest both to thai Rishi in generation to Tho continuance of our re publican ideas in adding dignity to labor in inculcating the True ideas f work Aud usefulness and True education to both and Young. For Many years the Kitchon gardens were Only for children of those who could afford to pay tuition but soon our Noble hearted women of Tho land How that this system of education was especially needed for the poor by the children Whoso parents had neither Tho time Lior mind to develop the infant faculties. Charitable Kinder recons were established in our larger cities and have for several years been one of Tho most fashionable As Well As useful charities. Now very generally Tho system in part or in whole has been introduced into the primary rooms of our graded schools. In Philadelphia in new Haven and in i ther Eastern cities after the kindergarten in the higher grades the use of tools is taught. Object teaching is but another phase of this Ilow system that the child is to Lourn through the senses by actual Experiment or experience instead of through the one Channel of Momory.
