Wodnesday Morniig, 8dpt. 17 1873.
Saturday, the 20th, has been ap.
pointed by Commissioner Crawford as
the day for the -meeting of teachers
and trustees. Gentlemen from dif
forent portions of the kCouify have
already- oxpres.4od their determination
to-be present. This convention should
be .g-enoral ; every township should
be repiresented by one or more teach
ors and trustees.
The object of the Convention -is,
as all-know, to improve Wur slicols,
and every precaution should be taken
to ensure success. The mest impor-.
tant qjuestion-is-how mueh m1o1ny will
be duo each' township. By est imat
,ing the amount of the State appor.
tionment, and eIloulating the sidns
raisyd by local assiments and poll
taxes, an approximiation can he nmade
near enough to direct the trustees'
how much'ean be expended for sah
ries of tead~iers. One of the crying,
evils of the r.ystem is th quantity of
subool coitificates hawked about the
County at i nominal value or no value
at all. This destroys o4 eorfidencc

are inivolved will be presented to cur

of repudiation may also be broumght
up, whether honestly by the Legisla
tire, or merely for the purpose of
bleeding t'he bond holders, it mnatters
not. The defnnet bond scrip will lie
in state b.efore the legis.lature, ated a.
determined effort will be made to re
store it to 1r00. In this seh'enie,1sl,
800,060 arc involved. In addition
to these, railroad jobs will inevitably
spring up. Tfhe question of allowing~
County Commiissioners to issue rail

All these things considered, tihe

Spiritualism in its various phases
