J.W. HOUGHTOJr, IT. H. HOUGHTON,
There is an indebtedneu of $44,000 on
BucLUal College, Akron.
Akron Schools ue seriously depleted
by measles amoDg the children.
It is stated that the Tiffin Woolen
Mills which recently suspended, sank
50,000 last year.
The widow of A. T. Stewart is con
stantly pestered by applicants for mo

Wlllard's Yankee Doodle," "Stars and
Stripes and the UigLi" are on exhibition

ommend less unnecessary expense at fu
nerals, and protest against the habit of
wearing costly mourning.
Mrs. Mary A. Dennison author of
"That Husband of Mine" is said to hare
made $15,000 from that not over-deep
nor ia any way remarkable, piece of lit
erary work, which goes to show that a
"taking" title is pecuniarily of more im
portance than the book itself.
The central thought of s Sunday ser
mon was: "As the pillar of cloud by
day and of fire by night led and lighted
the Hebrew people through the long wil
derness, so the Bible leads in the broad
way of prosperity and good cheer and
lights up and irradiates the shadowy
paths of sorrow and affliction for all of
Bishop Simpson's Yale Xectnres on
Preaching are Terr entertaining and in
strucUve reading. Few men in this
country have a better reputation for elo
quence and good sense combined, and
-vet he resisted for Tears the impression
of duty to preach because he had grown
to manhood thinking that he had none of
the qualifications of a good speaker.
Setter Home Cheese. .
The Mead villa Index thinks that really
good, digestible full-cream cheese would
find so large a home market that it would
not be necessary to get Uncle Sam's cus
tom in. feeding his 25,000 regulars.
Meadville with its thirty or forty gro
ceries has not one which makes a special
ty of full-cream Pennsylvania cheese.
Congressman Monroe does not regard
the bill asking for an appropriation to
repair the William and Mary College, in
the light of a war claim. He had Toted
for the appropriation of (5,000 to build
a monument over Jefferson's grave, and
was quite as willing to do something to
keep a- venerable old college in preserva
tion. The fact that this was an educa
tional monument increased his interest
in it and from thst point of Tiew he wa
in favor of it, and voted for it.
We should hare no objection to help
ing colleges on general principles if the
same courtesy could be extended to all
schools in like needy, circumstances, but
if we are to make a general thing of it,
Uncle 8am will have to adopt some means
to increase his' revenue, ortUe number of
applications would soon bankrupt him.
We think Mr. Monroe made a mistake
There is only one ground on which it
would be reasonable to pay for the dam
age done to that college, and that ia the
ground mentioned in the bill, that it was
destroyed by U. S. soldiers wantonly and
without orders. If our memory serves
us the matter has been along time before
Congress, has been carefully looked in
to, and the claim found to be without any
foundation in justice. If William and
Mary college is needy and there is any
reason of national importance why the
government should aid her, similar or
equal to that for erecting a monument to
Thos. Jefferson, then by all means let us
help her, but when she comes putting it
in the nature of a war claim then we beg
to be excused, and we are glad to note
that enough Northern Democrats were
found to aid the Republicans in defeat
ing such a scheme for repairing their
losses in the Rebellion. -
We think tee gentleman's own
admission shows that he had given too
little attention to the bill to fully under
stand its merits and that otherwise be
could not have voted as he did. .
County School Superintendent,
We are indebted to Hon. L. Herri ck
for a copy of a bill lately introduced in
theXegislature by Mr. Worley of Stark
Co., to create the office of County Super
intendent, which provides for aa election
of that officer the first Mondsy in June,
1879. by the Presidents of the several
township Boards of Education in each
county. He ia to receive compensation
as follows: In each county in which the
youth of school age exceed five thous
and, eight hundred dollars; over five
and less than ten thousand, one thousand
dollars; over ten and less than fifteen
thousand, fourteen hundred dollars and
so on to the extreme limit two thousand
dollars. It is made his duty to visit each
of the ungraded schools in the .county
at least once each year and as much of
tener as possible, to inquire into the
management and mode of discipline
and instruction of the school, the condi
tioa of the school houses and appur
tenances, and to give the teacher such
advice and direction in reference to the
course of instruction, method of teach
ing and discipline as he may deem prop
er: to meet with the teachers of the sev
eral townships for general instmction.ad
vice and coonsel and to meet with the
several township Boards of Education,
and advise and counsel with them and
other school officers in relation to the di
vision of their townships into sub-districts,
the management of schools, the
construction, ventilation and warming
of school buildings, etc., etc.
Provision is made to insure bis compe
tency and such rules made as will secure
co-operation on the part of the teachers,
and a thorough knowledge on his part of
the condition of each school in the coun
ty. The law makes many provisions for
the regulation of the duties of township
school officers, and for the improvement
of our whole common school', system.
The bill meets our hearty approval.
Future legislation will remedy: any de
fects not now apparent, but hereafter
discovered in its practical workings, and
there is no doubt some such plan will
lead to greater thoroughness and efficien
cy. The additional expense to the tax
payers, scarcely amounting tofrom seven
to sixteen cents tor each child of school
age, is so slight when compared with
the advantages that would result from
uniformity and method in arranging the
ceurces of instructions, and the putting
in practice the most improved systems of
instruction that it ought scarcely to be
thought of in this connection.
It is true, as has been urged that per
sonal visitation by a Superintendent can
not be very frequent but by reason of
printed instructions and rules and teach
ing at institutes and conventions he can
so make his influence felt as to make
a radical improvement in our ungraded
schools. Teaching has come to be a pro
fession of equal importance with medi
cine, law or theology, and new systems
and methods are being introduced re
quiring constant study and advancement
In its professors, and making it as im
practicable for school directors or even
former school-teachers, resident in the
districts who might be willing to exercise
a superintendency gratcitously, to be
made useful, as for the pettifogger to
manage a suit in the Supreme Court
Whatever may be the objections on first
view it becomes us to study it carefully
and perhaps to give it a fair trial, when
it can be abolished if it does not give
satisfactory results. We are Informed
that many other states have a similar su
perintendency and that in the main it is
found to work advantageously.
The manner provided for the election
of superintendents takes the matter en
tirely out of politics and permitsthe Presi-
idents to select the best man regardless
of political faith or place of residence.
We are confident that the apparent ob
jections to this plan will vanish with a
better understanding of its provisions snd
an experience of its practical workings.
Demorest's Monthly for February ia an
exceedingly attractive number in iu il
lustrations and filled with IU usual excel
lence and variety in every department.
"Baby land" for February which con
tinues to be the most attractive monthly
for the little folks ever published is on
our table. Parents will never regret the
small sum of fifty cents invested in this
charming magazine. Specimen copies
can be seen at this office and we will
cheerfully forward names of subscribers
to the publishers. , Dontt forget to look
Ballou's Monthly Magazine for Febru
ary is full of the most charming reading
matter. The leading illustrated article
is by the author of "A Whaleman's Ad
ventures," and treats of the Fijli Islands.
Earl Marble has a poem "Daddy Joe's
Sweetheart," written in a dialect which
will be interesting to Southwestern and
Missouri readers, and which is accompa
nied by some capital illustrations drawn
from life. It is published by Thomes &
Talbot, 23, Hawley St., Boston, at $1.60
a year, postpaid, and for sale at all the
periodical depots in the country.
Peterson's Magazine fur January is
already on our table, a triumph of art,
literature and fashion. Either of the
two steel engravings, "The Playmates,"
or "The Letter at the Gate," is worth the
price of the number. Then the triple
sized colored pattern, "Persian Embroi
dery ia Applique, etc.," the very newest
thing out would be cheep at fifty cent;.
As for- the mammoth colored fashion
plate it is simply unrivalled; and beside
this, there are some tmrty oiner laamon
illustrations. - Now is the time to sub
scribe. "Peterson" is undoubtedly the
cheapest and best of the ladies books.
The price is only two dollars a year. To
clubs it is still cheaper, viz; four copies
for 16.50, with an extra copy gratis to
the person getting up , the club, or five
copies for $8.00 and both an extra copy
and a superb premium engraving,
Christ Blessing Little Children." Spec
imens of tie magazine sent gratis to
persons desiring to get up clubs. Ad

Harper's Magazine for ' February is
very superior in its illustrations. J. C.
Beard's article, "The Treasures of the
Deep," S. G. W. Benjamin's "Rambles
in the South of France," "At the Mouth
of the Amazon," by M. Msuris, and
Winter Sports in Canada" by Frederick
G. Mather are specially rich in scene pic
tures. Will Carleton's pathetic humor has
taken a new turn and "Our Traveled
Parson" is a good story in his own home
ly style and happily illustrated by Abbey.
In this number Mrs. Muloch Craik be
gins a serial story, and all her old friends
will wish to read "Young Mrs. Jardlne."
Horace E. Scudder treats on "Education
by Hand," and artists are notified that
the series of papers on the "Old Flemish
Masters" is concluded and to be succeed
ed by another on the Dutch Masters
Mendelssohn's letters to Madam Mos-
cheles, published for the first time, will
be read with great interest. .

the best story writers in America, con
tributes a "Story of the Plague", and

The Editor's Easy Chair has reminis
cences of Old New York, and discourses
of the Gambetta duel, the Tell legends,
and Mrs. Whitman's poems. The Liter

and the always interesting Drawer com
plete the number.
The February Scribner is embellished
as distinctively mid-wiiiicr, and one has
only to glance at Its title-page to be
freshly convinced that '-Snow drifts pile
the window ledge. " The fourth of the
portraits like those of Lincoln, Bryant
and Longfellow is now given in one of
Emerson, and is followed by sn illustra
ted paper on the "Homes and Haunts' of
this Eminent Scholar." "The Tile Club
at Play" fills twenty -two pages . The poet
Stedman has taken a new flight and now
writes of "Aerial Navigation." "The
Fortunes and Misfortunes of Co. C," is
the second of the "Johnny Reb Papers,"
and is well written. The English Car
icaturist John Leech is described by
Russell . Sturgis, and some of his
best drawings have been reproduced.
"Seeking Pasturage" is a pathetic illus
tration in "Studies of the Sierras." As
a master-hand at character-drawing the
author of "Haworth" proves herself
equal to any new venture and this story
is worth reading if for nothing more than
aa a study in fiction.
Boyeson's "Falconberg" is to be con
cluded in April. "The Relations of
Insanity to Modern Civilization" ia a
thoughtful examination into the causes
of the disease, which the author shows to
be: a vicious, imperfect and injudicious
education, the habit of hurry, and the
universal struggle for place and a com
petence, too little sleep, and the unequal
distribution of the means of living.
We must conclude mention of this ex
cellent number by reference to Edward
Eggleston's entertaining group of anec
dotes under the title of "To The Clergy"
and beg the printer to make room for this
much showing his admiration of "Cler

FOR THE CURE OF
Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
DTSTSrSA AMD SICK HEADACHE.
Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN in the right side, under the
edge of the ribs, increases on pres
sure; sometimes the pain is in the left
side; the patient is rarely able to lie
on the left side ; sometimes the pain is
felt under the shoulder blade, and it
frequently extends to the top of the
shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken
for rheumatism in the arm. The
stomach is affected with loss of appe
tite ana sickness: trie Dowels in gen
eral are costive, sometimes alternative
with lax; the head is troubled with
pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy
sensation in the back part There is
generally a considerable loss of mem
ory, accompanied with a painful sen
sation of having left undone some
thing which ought to have been done.
A slight, dry cough is sometimes an
attendant. The patient complains of
weariness and debility; he is easily
staruea, ms teet are cold or burning.
and he complains of a prickly sensa
tion ot the skin; his spirits are low;
and although he is satisfied that exer
cise would be beneficial to him, yet
he can scarcely summon up fortitude
enough to try it. In fact, he distrusts
every remedy. Several of the above
symptoms attend the disease, but cases
have occurred where few of them ex
isted, yet examination of the body,
after death, has shown the liver to
have been extensively deranged.
AGUE AND FEVER.
Dr. C McLane's Liver Pills, in
cases of Ague and Fever, when
taken with Quinine, are productive of
the most happy results. No better
cathartic can be used, preparatory to,
or after taking Quinine. We would
advise all who are afflicted with this
disease to give them a fair trial.
For all bilious derangements, and as
a simple purgative, they are unequaled.
BEWARE OF IXITATIOXB.
