nine have been supplied with out build-

remain without. There are about lliirty
llaee first class school-hotisea in the
county if our standard is not too low,
but vc are sorry to add that but forty
school-rooms ha-e suitable furniture. It
is a fact that will not be doubted we
think by any one, that were our ecbool-1mus-s
better furnished atrl more com
fortably seated, irregularity in attend
anciv that bane and one of the srreatest
, , -f, r .i
nr flfMit-h-if-ea in flip iirocrpaa tA rli-
schools would be a mirth less evil than it
now is. We have often thought while
makiug oiir tours of visitations through
the county, that it was no wonder that
childreu were irregular in their attend
ance at school and especially so to those
houses v liti.lj furniture is marked iu
iurious To sit on a fiat board with a
perpendicular back, and in many instan
cos the children's feet dangling "'twixt
heaven and earth" from three to Ave
hours each day is to say the least, almost
beyond the endurance of any ordinary
child. Not one parent in a hundred
would ask, or even allow his child to oc
cupy such a seat at home for even' half
that length of time, yet they will fold
their hands and allow school officers to
furnish such nnhealthy accommodations
for their child in the school-room, and
then, too. it is expected, notwithstanding
all this that the teacher is to keep an
orderly and well regulated school.
Twenty eight school houses were sup
plied with out-Iihe maps during theyear.
anil we have reason to believe that at
least two districts more would Lave
been furnished with maps had teachers
been as punctual to use what apparatus
they already had in their schools as they
should bave been. We were frankly
told by directors that they did not see
the nse of furnishing" outline maps at
quite an expense to the district when
their teachers made no nse of globes and
other apparatus tbej already had. The
argument was conclusive, we said no
more. Teachers might take a hint from
the above, and in tbe future make a
proper "nse -of all educational means
placed in their hands.
An old and very erroneously estab
lished prejudice still exists in some dis
tricts against female teachcTs. Intelli
gent and well meaning persons otherwise
have long entertained the idea that a
female teacher will do very well to teach
a summer school of little boys and girls,
but they must have a man for - the win
ter school, as they say, " girls cannot
manage tbe big boys." Why those dear
honest people have gotten so far behind
the age and don't know it, as not to know
that schools are not governed now days
by force or physical strength as in times
past when they and ourselves went to
school. Women are better qualified by

' nature for teacliera than men are. Their
moral and 8oca!..aatare8 . iire better
adapted to the dinpositions of children,
they are naturally endowed with a ranch
greater amount of patience anc forbear
ance towards them than men are. Iler
natural lore of order, her love for the
good, the beautiful ant" the tme, all emi
nently qualify her for thU work j but thU
ia only another realisation of tha fact
that nature la ever true to herself. The
training of children ia woinau'a natural
sphere, and the goofier the education of
the young go almost exclusively into her
hands the better. Not but what we
have some very excellent teachers in the
ranks of the opposite . sex, but our ex
perience for the last six years has been
'something like the following : In dis
tricts where the was the greatest number
of female teachers employed, they had iu
sur.li districts) always the highest number
of good schools. The present year there
were employed in the county seventy five
m tle and twenty-eight female teachers,
and were we to name ti n of the best
tanght and beat governed schools in the
county, notwithstanding this dispropor
tion iu sex, fix of this number would be
schools taught by females and four by
males. I mean here no invidious dis
tinction between theexe, but simply
honor to whom honor is due. Men, as a
general thing, have less to induce them
to remain iu the profession and qualify
themselves for teachers than women.
Nine tenths of them are looking to some
oilier employment more remunerative,
and c.ire but little about school teaching,
or the children either, so as they get
the time iu and receive the stipulated
salary. It is not so with females ; there
is scarcely anything opea to them that
will pay them better than teaching, and
with but few exceptions they eive it
; their whole, nttcation and energy.

of its being made compulsory. If such

the next best step would be to secure a

each triennial convention become nmro
and more apparent. The eootier educa
tors take hold of this subject and give it
thcattentiou its importance demands the
better. It is useless to farther shift the
matter, every delay is fraught with det
riment to the schools. Our school di
rectors generally are a class of meu who
feel a deep interest in tho cause of edu
cation, but ninc-teuths of them in the
rural districts belong - to the laboring
class, either farmers or mechanics. Those
generally who have time at their dispo
i sal are unwilling to servo na school di
rectors. We are almost contiuually met
with som tthing liko the following when
conversing with school directors on the
eubjeet of the duties of the office : "I
know I do not discharge my duty. I am
well aware that I ought to do much
more than I do, but I have not the time.
The truth is, I cannot afford to do so
much and spend so much time fornoth
ing, -and that too t the neglect nf my
own business." A few men of a district
generally have to perform all the duties
of school directors, while the balance go
clear of both labor and taxation. In
i view of the above facts it would seem
but justice that those who are willing to
labor and give their time for the piorao
tion of the public good ehould receive a
compensation for their services. "Then the
burden, if such, would fall equally npon
all. Those who are an willing to serve as
directors would be compelled to coctrib
utc of their means to those who are will
ing to assume the responsibilities and do
the lab ir.

that immediately npon the return of
Lieutenant Gilbreath two scoaliug par

but owing to the high water it was about
eight hours after starting before they
could cross the Clear Fork. By sending
the men, equipments, k , across in a

they were all safely crossed by sunset on
Owing to the small number of troops

i made for Col. Mackenzie's expediliou, it
was impossiblu to send very largw par
ties, and so much time elapsed before the
Clear Fork could be crossed, owing to
the high water, of which the Indians
took advantage, that there is little hope

A funny joke, and all the more palat
able as its truth can be vouched for. says
a New Jersey paper, occurred at a prom
inent church iu that State It seems that
a wnrtfcy deacon had" been very iudus
trions in selling a new church book, cost
ing seventy five cents. At the service
in question, the minister, just before dis
missing the congregation, arose and said :
"AH yon who have children to baptize
will please to present them next Sab
bath." The deacon, who, by tbe way, was a
little deaf, having an eye to selling the
books, and supposing ths pastor was re
ferring to them, immediately jumped np
and shouted :
"All yqu w.ho haven't any, can get as
many aa you want by calling on rap, at
at seventy-five cents each."

Tcere is a plr.ee ia Oregon called the
Smoky Valley, where the people have a
very curious way of cooking. They do
not have the trouble of mating1 a fire
every morning when they w ished to get
breakfast. They just walk' 6t!t with
their kettles, coffee pots, and whatever
else they need, and cook at the boiling
spring. The water seems a great deal
better than common boiling water, and
all they need to do is to hang their ket
tles in it for a short time, and the;r food
io nicely cooked. They are able even to
bab-A iti ir rrim LrAatl put into &'
tigbf's.iticepan. and lowered into the boil

but a thin rim oh tbe crust over it. Meat
is cooked here, and heart's", which are the
miner's great luxury. It. takes but a
minute to cook og, or to make a pot of
coffee or tea ; hut if there should chance
to be a "slip "twixt the enp and the lip,"
the food would be gone beyond" recovery .
