THE GOOD IT HAH ACCOMPLISH
ED AND ITS PltOSrEOTS KOK
THE iTTUUK.
It Is now ten yearn sincn tho Herman
school aiiociation came into existence.
This being truo it will not be out of
placo at this lime to give n brief history
of tho roaions for Its organization, and
tho good results that have accrued to tho
city through it.
WtlY HIE SCHOOL "'AS OROAKIZUP.
The w of (lerinan-Amcrlcan
ichn in Cairo was most keenly
.ell In tli o years 1HG3-I. During thoio
yoars many Hermans, a largo iiorccntajo
ot thorn well-to-do ine:ba!iics, some mer
chants, etc., eamo to Cairn with the
rlow of locating and making this their
home. Hut tho Uok of educational aj
vantftgci was a sorlous objoctlon. The
public schools wero open to them, and
while they were satlttled with the advan
tages oflercd thoir children for acquiring
an English education, there was not an
opportunity offered to ncquiro an equally
good oducation in the mother tongue.
Thus, many men who woull havo mado
good citizens nnd havo been valutblo ac
qaisitions totho business intureits of the
city, wero Induced to go elsewhere.
THR ORGANISATION.
To supply this want, and wltn a vlow
to organizing an association for tho pur
pose of building n school houso wherein
both (l.Tinnn and English ehould bo
tsught in other worJs a Uorman-Amerl"
can school on tho flrt day of July, 1804,
a number of thn leading Germans of th
city asjomble.l together nnd resolved
thcmielves inlo an "aoeltion f.ir the
purpose of organizing and maintaining a
German-American school."
At this moating thesubjoct of erecting n
school houio was discussed, and it was ro
solvsd to at once mako nn tllort in that
direction.
Accordingly, a comtnitteo to solicit sub
scriptions was appointed, and two days
nfurwant cmrmwDCad canvassing tliu
city for donations. Tho committee met
with unanticipated sucets, tho Amoricanf
and English-speaking pooplo subscribing
liberally to tho project Col. Taylor was
appltod to nnd roadily donatod four lots,
tho cite whoro the present Germsn school
building stands.
WHAT IT COST.
At that time, Just beforo tho close of
the war, labor and material wero high,
and by tie time the building wai dono
tho association bad expended four thoui
and dollars.
While tho building was In course of
crestlon, the association began to look
about for a suitable person to take chargo
of tho school. Prof. Appol, then teacher
in Cincinnati, waiappliod to, and a short
U,u kfur a contract was entorod Into be
tween the Professor and the association.
THE TIRST SCHOOL.
Arriving in Cairo, the new build
ing cot being completed, on the ISth day cf
July, 1604, Prof. Appel opened a school,
for tho time being, at tho corner of Ninth
and Cedar streets, in a building Ion: slnco
removed. On the 4th ot December, lb04,
the new building having been oomplotod,
it was moved Into, and it has evar sinco
uuuu uvcupiaa uj tuu uuiui.u b.iiwvi,
UOW THE HCI10OL H SUITOR TED.
A certain tuition fee is charged for
each ctholar, the exact amount we do not
know. The revenuo derived from this
courco is not, however, sutllciont to defray
the expenses of tho school pay teachers,
fuel, incidental oxpenses, etc., aad tho bal
anco is raited by a spocisl aiiesimont of
tho members of the association.
Last year the number of pupils in the
school was vory largo, numbering eighty
odd, and it became avident to the associa
tion that an ultra toachor would havo to
bo employed.
Accordingly, Miss Clotilda Yocum was
ongagod to tako chargo of tho English
branches taught in the school. How woll
Miss Yocum discharged hor dutios in the
school will bo understood when it Is
known that tho board of directors
havo already engagod her to teach tho
coming season.
The number of pupils in tho German
scnooi at tne Close 01 inn last lorm was
upwards ot ono hundred, and the pros
peels am mm wnen tlio school opens
again the number will b'i oven greater
than this.
1 ho gradual but constant Increase of
patronage tho school has received, renders
it nocossary that oruo muoh nocdod ro.
pairs be male on the school house. Tho
room in the building has become insula
c,0Dt t0 cgtumodato wh" deslro to
aumia j fcr.il to tumudy Uii want ll is
proposed to raise tho presont frame build
tng and put a brick basement under It,
Ihus doubling its capacity. To do this the
association will tavo to ask aid from our
citizens generally, and it is to bo hoped
Hioy will snbsciibo liberally to the enter
prlso,
flotwiinstandlng tha success with
which tha school has met within tho last
year, It has also had sorious opposition to
contend with. Tho Gorman school Is ns
iree from sectarianism as our publlo
schools, and Is conducted on tho same
bread principles, Tho association from
tho first determined that this should be so.
and have adhered to it.
Th yearly examination of tho German
sehool took place on Tuesday mid Wed
nesday of last week, and was vory thor
oughin its course. Tho school is divided
Into two classes:
The llrsl class was examined in English
reading end grammar; hlatory of the
United States, botany, arithmetic, geog.
raphy, algebra, translation and German,
Tho examination was vory complete,
and all tho pupils acquitted themselves
creditably.
Tho second class was examlnod in En.
gllsh reading and spelling, geography,
arithmetic, translation and Gorman,
fills class was also equally well pre
pared for the examination, and wero put
titho sovorest test, but camo out 'f It
with flying colors. , I
Of ncedlo work there wat about fifty
tiiocoi, all mado bv tho scholars O tho"
school. This branch of tho schol Is
ttught by Mrs. Appel, wife of tho Pre
fessor. Many of tho articles uxhbiled
wero bosutlftil, and very creditable 1 tho
little misses whoso haudiwork they vore,
A couimlttno of throo ladles, Mrs. U.K.

CRITICISM OF THE UMPIRE.
Dctjuois, III., Julr c, lb7.
Mil. Editor: Last Siturday, while in
your city, I hd the pleasure of witnoss
ing a haso hall match betwosn tbu Cairo
and Mound City clubs. Any porson that
witnoitod the gamu could seo that tho
Cairo club was tho bost plajers, with one
2tulMcftVd,nn,flnump'iro,,inar-inov?:a
least, bow to call balls, ind ono that
lacked timidity 0110 who would, aftor
making a decision, right ot wrong, bold
to his opinion, tho Mound City club would
havo been defeated as badly us the Cairo
nine. I do not mean to do iny icjastieo
to tho umpiro, as bo may bs 11 No. 1 gen
tleman for all I know, but 1 doknow that
ho is vory ignorant of thi national rules
of umpiring.
Umpiring a baso ball fimo requires a
porson witu expenoiic. in t jo busi
ness. A person who 1 quick at seeing,
one who makes it a puin to keop his eyes
on tho balls from tho bginning till tho
oud of tho game, und abvo all, ono who
is impartial.
An umpiro is bound 3 mako enemies
on ono or th other si.lo but last Satur
day's umpiro receive! jets from ail sides.
In conclusion, Mr. Kditr, I would Bug
gst to the Cairo club tt.t, In tho future,
If thoy ever expect to wi a game, to so
lect an umpire who isacquaintod with
tho national rules of umiring.
