These certificates were issued for life, and a list of persons to whom these certificates were granted was published in the report of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for 1873.

TEXT BOOKS ON PHYSIOLOGY, &C. The legislature of 1887 materially amended the statute providing for instruction in physiology and hygiene, &c., restricting the choice of textbooks. The following is the text of the amended act :


Sec 15. The district board shall specify the studies to be pursued in the schools of the district [districts), and in addition to the branches in which instruction is now required by law to be given in the public schools of the State, instruction shall be given in physiology and hygiene with a special reference to the nature of alcohol and narcotics and their effects upon the human system. Such instruction shall be given by the aid of text-books in the case of pupils who are able to read and as thoroughly as in other studies pursued in the same school. The text-books to be used for such instruction shall give at least one-fourth of their space to the consideration of the nature and effects of alcoholic drinks and narcotics, and the books used in the highest grade of graded schools shall contain at least twenty pages of matter relating to this subject. Text-books used in giving the foregoing instruction shall first be approved by the State Board of Education. Each school board making a selection of text-books under the provisions of this act shall make a record thereof in their proceedings and text-books once adopted under the provisions of this act shall not be changed within five years except by the consent of a majority of the qualified voters of the district present at an annual meeting or at a special meeting called for that purpose. The district board shall require each teacher in the public schools of such district, before placing the school register in the hands of the directors (director) as provided in section thirteen of this act, to certify therein whether or not instruction has been given in the school or grade presided over by such teacher, as required by this act, and it shall be the duty of the director of the district to file with the township clerk a certified copy of such certificate. Any school board neglecting or refusing to comply with any of the provisions of this act, shall be subject to fine or forfeiture the same as for neglect of any other duty pertaining to their office. This act shall apply to all schools in the State, including schools in our cities or villages, whether incorporated under special charter or under the general laws.

The following text-books on Physiology and Hygiene have been approved by the State Board of Education for use in the Public Schools of the State, in accordance with the provisions of the above quoted Act.
