"WIL1IAM," AN UNKNOWN COKUES.

"Williolm" to "Wllhlralna" What tho Di
rectors Should Do, and What They
Bhould Not 1)0.
"Wll.l.UVl" TO "WII.III'.I.MI.VA."
Caiiio. Ai Bii.as, t;.
Ill your letter to the lli i.i.f.nx, of the
27th Inst., you tnke n menu advantage of
an esteemed and honored gentleman,
Prol. G. G. Alvord. Under the guise of
highly complimenting that gentleman,
and at the same time blaming the mem
bers of the school board, more or le4s
you gave the profeor an undeserved
and cowardly stall lu a tender spot, mid
show up the very fault in the board that
"Wllhelm" had, already, hi Ids common
sense, practical way, told us about. To
quote: "The members of the Hoard ol
Education are gentlemen who have been
i. Mixr.vi i.v uLcenssi ii.
In their business albilrs.' (Possibly, my
dear madam, that Is the exact reason
why they seem to understand so little
about economy lu handling the school
fund.) At th! time Pror. A. was llrst
employed, Ids salary was llxed by the,
(then) Hoard at SI,b(X; a living, liberal
price even then, when air current ex
penses were greatly lu advance ot what
they now are. "Since then" (to continue
ii. mi.s havi: cit.vxoi.u;
ilnuiicial troubles have made us all more
careful of our pennies, and we
leel our school expenses must be
reduced In common with all the expenses
ol life," tlierelore, and for that reason,
you assume the present Hoard has
advanced the professor's salary lrom
l,MX)lo $2,100. And th.it you give as
one of the evidences ol the wNdom nnd
economy of "eminently surecs-l'ul busi
ness men," at the same time plainly In
dicating that he was oris, retained upon
Ids reputation. If tills
srvi.i: OF KI.ATIUKV
is acceptable to the members ol the Hoard
It must be composed of men ot singular
tastes. As to Prof. A. he certainly had
"the reputation (belore you got
hold of him) ol being a su
perior teacher'' and upon that
reputation, backed by the recom
mendation of some of our most success
1 ill educators, he was engaged as superin
tendent of our Cairo schools ; but had
Ids reputation a a teacher been based
ou such evidence as you bring up In your
(who, by the way. was not, or doe not
hope to be so classed lor two or more
years to come), had not been considered
by the Hoard as suitable for the place,
and had not been given it nt any salary,
much less Mtilucd for several years lu
succession, at a salary greatly Increased
n3 has been done by the present board.
It Is evident that In your desire to
"rim: vvatf.i: (i.v hotii Biiori.iir.ui"
you have slopped over considciably,
and splashed both parties about equally.
Even had you "toted talr," by thoo two
parties, your later love "the talented
Miss McHrlde," had been too much lor
your sense, for In your ellort to strengthen
that lady claim as a public benefactor,
you have chased the sinllo over the fair
face ot beauty and caused tho knitted
brow of stern manhood to unbend. Cpon
vi i i.i. yor i.xi-i.Ai.v now
"the ability with which this lady con
ducts the recitations in tho Normal school"
is calculated to remedy the past extrav
