may talk about your high schoo
with Errand buildings and costly ai
pliance8, or the dignified carnpi
of the colleges, but for utility an
practical good among the multitud
of the lowly and plain folks, th
young lady iu the lonely old-fiel
school house, tops the list. We ca
see her as she packs her trunk an
leaves her home with th?? tear dro
on her lash, going out araongs
strangers in a strange land, an<
she goes alone too, with simpl
trusting faith in humanity, and i
can be said of her, in her sweet in
nocent youth, when the star o
childhood still lingers in the ros;
orient of her young womanhood.

Br* what a noble life this is!
We can see the lady taking th(
candle of knowledge, into all th<
dark plaoesof-thb country..-toll ghi
up an ignorant neck of the back
woods, -??he is truly walking th?
path of duty and -useful service,
where there is really more happi
ness. Some one has truly said,
'*'That happiness is a wayside flow
er that grows along-side of the path
of duty," and if one makes a spe
cial.t?sk of seeking happiness, it
will prove a veritable will o'-the
wisp-, or like finding- the end of the
rain-b?w, ' she" ?ludes you* every
.??Ob, how wretched is thr.t useless
girl, who belongs to the idle rich
class, or what is worse the idle poor,
aud has- gorae' one eveu to put
her clothes on her, who is wearing
herself out trying to iret more otu
of lif?.than there is in it, as Byron
says, who gets into the sear and
yellow leaf, and becomes worn out
with' the dullness of society. Of all
the women in my acquaintance the
most contemptible is the one who
spehd&'ber w-hol? ?imV on"- dr^sp,.:a
mere milliner's in o'dell wi'tlT about
as, much hwart, and nat... as juiuch
utit.ityr--as a wax'f?fitnan ;in'?deK in
th?^f ron:" window v?f a"T3ry-gooda
store, and what a slave to the dry
.goods merchant is the poor husband
of such a walking fashion model.
But those girls who go out into
atfasgfitfaqds and ; do, u^eCu'^service
'ih'feachihg the\.you^g';fa1ea' how to
shoot, deserve the profound admi
ration of the country. These la
dies not only teach the day schools,
but they usually help in the Sunday
In fact we could get along without
the high schools, though it would
be unfortunate. We could get along
without the colleges, but the one
necessary need in the country is
the old-field school, both because it
gives any one enough learning to
go on if he wants to do so. And
because there are so many country
people, and the country people are
the producers of the nation. I take
oft' my hat to the young lady school
teacher in the old-field school house,
and say greetings. All over the
land in and about the towns you
see large majestic school buildings,
but they are not turning out such
men as thc old-field school house
has sent out, and is furnishing,
along the various paths of useful
ness and honor.
Another thing about these sweet
youug girls who teach, every woman
has at least oue eye on matrimony,
which is to be commended. We
have noticed that teaching school
is a mighty good spring-board to
matrimony. We know several girls
who, if thoy had stayed at home,
would have wasted their sweetness
on the desert air, as old maids, but
by going out amongst strangers,
and mingling amongst new people,
they catch a beau and settle down
to keeping house. A young man of
sense, while he will waste his idle
hours feeding taffy to a worthless
society butter fly, when he gets
down to choosing a mate for life,
he naturally wants a woman who is
industrious and independent the
woman with grit and self-reliance
her own responsibility,commends her
self to all sensible men, but even if
she does not choose to marry, she
enjoys the <zlorious privilege of
being independent. We know full
many an interesting and useful
old maid, who fills her nitch in life
as no other member of society could.
It is by no means ignoble for a wo
man not to marry, though it may be,
in cases, for an old bachelor. Some
of the finest characters in the fe
male world are old maids, as Pope
I think says,
"Honor and fame from no condition
