Seite 66 - Virginia the carriage-maker, the cabinet-maker, the manufacturer of the implements of husbandry and of household articles find that the material is carried from our forests almost to the Canada line, worked up by steam or water power, and returned and sold here at lower rates than we can manufacture them.

Even in so simple a work as that of making boots and shoes, not less than seventeen patented inventions are now used....
Seite 69 - The objection has been made to normal schools, that knowledge is what the teacher needs, and that our literary institutions furnish it best. This is only half of what the teacher needs, and much the easier half You will find twenty who have this qualification where you find one who knows how to teach and govern.
