“3. They make greater progress in school work, especially in arithmetic. drawing, the sciences, and in the use of language to express their own ideas;

** 4. This kind of training, better than any other, learls directly to industrial edu. cation.

** The impression usually left upon the mind of any careful observer by a group kindergarten children is that they are very cheerful, intelligent, active, and exceedingly fond of school work. None but those of rare qualitications can succeed as teachers in this work. Indeed, it would seem that a kind of instinet and a gepins for teaching, as well as careful training, are here necessary for the highest success. But in the hands of a teacher of such endowments the kindergarten, whether judged in reference to its principles and philosophy or its results, is probably one of the most successful educational agencies ever put in practice.

An attempt to introduce this system at once into all our primary schools would meet with two objections, the first of which is the large expense necessary to provide additional rooms, appliances and material, furniture and teachers. Then, as a second objection, there is the difficulty of obtaining a sufficient number of well-qualified teachers, one of the greatest obstacles everywhere to the success of the kindergarten.”

Though the ontlook is not as encouraging as could be wished, the advocates of the cause are not disbeartened, for they feel that, though its growth is slow, there is a growing appreciation of its principles from year to year, and that the day is not far distant when kindergartens will be open to every child in our land.

Meanwhile many of the kindergarten methods and occupations are being introduced into our primary schools: teachers are becoming imbued with their principles, thereby bringing more love and happiness into the school-room, and when the timo is ripe for their adoption they will undoubtedly be welcoined by all.

KINDERGARTEN TRAINING SCHOOLS. The kindergarten training schools, beretofore classed with private normal schools, have this year, for convenience of reference, been placed in a table by themselves. As far as reported there are 41 schools, with 67 instructors and 452 pupils. Several of these classes are in connection with public normal schools, while Des Moines, Iowa, Muskegon, Mich., and St. Louis, Mo., each support a public training class.

The demand is increasing yearly for trained kindergartners, not only to take charge of pure kindergartens, but to till positions in the primary and lower grades of our public schools.

In several normal schools where the full training is not given the classes are permitted to observe in a kindergarten and are instructed in the games and some of the occupations, showing the gradual appreciation by school officers of the methods and principles of the system.
