However unjust it may be to
any of the candidates that their e
speeches are not prin ted verbatim f
in the daily papers, it is certainly
an immense relief to the great I
masses that they do not have to v
read through every day all this
"who I am," "what I have done,"
and "what.L-.Lill: do, if elected."
Instead d itieizing these papers
for iving.Imgre reports, they
ought to be thanked for giving
the gist of the various speeches
without making it necessary to S
have to read them in full. a
When the candidacy of Mr. C
Lyon for attorney-general was 0
first announced, we expressed our i
regrets at his entrance into pol- n
itics just at this time, as we had a
hoped that he would wait till his r
work on the investigating com- a
mittee was entirely concluded be- g
fore seeking any political honors.
But now that he is being hound- a
ed down for the faithful dis- s
charge of the duties connected
with his unpleasant task and h
that it is made so clear that his
defeat would be taken as a tri
umph for the dispensary with 0
its inseparable corruption we
want it distinctly understood t'
that we are for him first and
last. His election will be a tri
umph for the right. d
It is getting time, we think, to a
let up for a few years on the 0
summer school. The teachers E
are getting tired of them, and c
rightly so, after attending from r
year to year. Holdl up for a few I f
years until another crop of teach- a
ers come on.-Newberry Observer. c:
But this pedagogical tree is V
an ever bearing one. Each year u
there is a new and larger crop of a
teachers. As these new ones t]
come in to take the place of
those dropping out, they must t<
have the very best training p
possible. The summer school a
offers very fine advantages for ec
their study and for their getting 3
acquainted with their fellow- "
teachers. While certain limita- "
tions have allowed of so few a
changes in the course of study,
that it would necessarily become ci
monotonous to a teacher. to at- p
tend yearly, yet it must b:3b.orne al
in mind that in a large measure n
the experience of attending one n
of these normals is a very new c
thing to these new teachers and t4
proves very fruitful to them.
There are no doubt changes i
that could be made that would ai
make these schools even more re
effective than at present. In ti
the first place there is decided p
need for reducing their number. 11
This diminishing process that a
has been started through the li
district schools needs to be.
carried still farther till there are 1
not more than three summer
schools in the state. These C
-schools are not so much for the 03
purpose of doing academic work t1
with teachers, whose place is in m
the school* room in - the winter
months as pupils, but are for the
purpose of helping teachers in
the work of teaching,-not merely
instructing them, but opening the
way for a better use of their w
present equipments. A reduction SI
in the number of courses, a chang e gi
from the purely class room work cz
to something that is not so much bi
shop-like, and the employment of ta
the very best teachers for the ti
few subjects to be taught are
some of the ways in which teach- w
ers can be induced to attemd It
from year to year and of increas- in
ing the value of the training to q
the new teachers that come in. st
By abolishing all the county R
schools, which, with one or two cc
exceptions are but poorly attend- cc
ed and are lacking in professional p:
uplift, these ideals may be reach- sa
ed. Conducting these summer ol
schools on this high plane might fe
not mean quite so large an at- if
* tendance so far as numbers are d<
concerned, but it is safe to pre- se
dict that the attendance would tc
represent a better grade of sa
teachers and would be composed ha
more largely of teachers whose ce
faces have become faimiliar on the tr
campus by virtue of their con- ti:
tinuous coming. .h
CetrReporter Changes Hands. jn
After 32 years of continuousm
and faithful service as editor of ar
the Chester Reporter, Mr. Jno. H. bc
Buchanan retires from the tripod, fa:
having sold his paper to Messrs
Perkins and 1rwin. Mr. Perkins Cr
'has been in Chester for several c;.
years, having come there as a ha
printer in the Lantern office, and
by determined application had 1
become foreman and a good one. mo
Mr. Irwin has for several months dri
acted as reporter for the Lantern. No

are will do well. But somehow

It may be a weakness of the
mind, or it may be a family fail
ing, or it may be a fonduess for
recollections of days gone by, or
it may be one of a thousand other
reasons besides "value received"
that induces a Fairfield boy to
keep up the old habit of taking
The News and Herald, but bc the
reason what it may, it is an estib
lished fact, that once a Fairfield
boy, always a Fairfield boy and a
copy of The News and Herald
somewhere around the home.
My copy comes regularly on
Wednesday mornings, and no mat
ter how busy I may be, I always
find time to read it from "kiver to
kiver"-advertisements and a)l.
Yes, I mean it--"lountains of
Gold," "Postmaster Robbed,"
"Fortunate Missourian," and all
the rest. Yes, even the "An
nouncements of the Caudidates;"
and really the last mentioned is
the sole explanation of this letter.
Had it not been that the issue of
the 27th inst. .contained the an
nouncement of a candidate for
the house of representatives
which was of more than ordinary
interest to me, I would not have
given myself the trouble to write
I always thought the good peo
ple of Fairfield knew a good thing,
and I will believe to my last day
that they know a good man, and
it gives me pleasure to see that
progress along this line is being
kept up. But to business and to
the purpose of this letter.
I see that the friends of Charles
Henry Leitner have taken it upon
themselves to announce him as a
candidate for the house of repre
sentatives. Well, about all that
I care to say is, that some people,
be they who they may, in my
humble judgment, sare dead set
on having Fairfield represented
by a Representative Man. Now,
understand right here, I am not
discounting any other man in the
race., There are good ones, no
doubt of that. Fairfield has ever
had a strong representation in the
house, and will continue to have
so long as such men stand for
election as- are now announced
in The News and Herald. The
point I wish to make is simply
this: It is a great pleasure to me
to see the old Bethel neighbor
hood step right up to the firing
line when the call for a man
comes and say, "Here he is!"
I don't know what Charles'
platform is, the fact is Idon't
care. He is a man, and that is a
whole lot "bigger" than a plat
form or politics either-a young
man, a good man, and an educated
man. I wish I could vote for
him, for I always love to vote for
just such a man; but I can't
always get a chance to do as I
please, so all that I can do in this
case is to say, "Go it, Charles!"
