Jake Bradley's barbecue was not as
largely attended as was expected. It
however turned out a success, which is
probably owing to the absence of Crazy
Horse, alias Liltlc-Antclopc-with-thc-Stumpy-Tail,
who. it is generally lc
lieved, did not relish the Idea of coming
in contact with our rising young friend,
McGee, which caused him to show the
white feat tier. MeGee, however, had
come prepared to speak, and spoke. His
speech, as was also that ot George Hen
drick, who was called upon by the
crowd, was exceedingly creditable. John
Gladuey, Professor Britton aud Jim Or

The Mound City AnjM-Juv.nxal says:
"G. W. Harbinson, who has been for a
considerable period in charge ot the
National cemetery ut this place, received
a few days since his discharge, on the
plea that there was an excess of one
superintendent of cemeteries. Mr. II. is
an old soldier and bears the scars ol
wounds made by seven bullets that
perforated his body. He was the most
efllcient superintendent ever stationed at
the Mound City cemetery, and the ex
cuse for his removal is rather '-too thin"
to those who know him. But this ad
ministration loves the old soldier; ob,
yes! Harbinson is to be succeeded by
Mr Fitzpatrick, from the Santa Fe, New
Mexico, National Cemetery,"'

Mr. Harrell, its editor, being ot the opin

men iu this becliou have passed away,
never to come again. The death of the
Gazette, causes much regret among
the newspaper fraternity here abouts. In
speaking of Mr. Hai red and his paper,
the Anna I'nion says :
"We exceedingly regret that the Cairo
Gazette, which has stood the tluancial
racket some six years, contemplates sus
pension. For years, the Gazette was pros
perous, but like other important bul
lies interest of Cairo, printing has
ceased to bo prolltable there, and hence
the suspension. Mr. Harrell is oue of the
old stagers that Southern Illinois - cannot
afford to lose, and we trust the suspen
sion of his paper will not be perma
nent." The Anna Union, after copying the ar.

Mr. Editor : In your issue of the
2'ith, I sec what purports to be a correct
copy of contracts which our female teach
ers must sign before they will be em
ployed. It docs s?eni to me the most
despotic contract ever heard of, and in
direct violation of the law. Ivtt us sec
what this agreement means : " And I
further agree that I will resign my posi
tion and withdraw from said schools
whenever requested to do so, by said
Board of Education, or the superintend
ent of said schools, and will ask tor no
reason why such request was made, nor
will 1 blame or censure any one connec
ted with the management of said schools
on account of it ; nor claim compensa
tion from the date of resignation." Does
It not mean that no teacher under the
superintendent shall ever question his
acts, and shall be removed by him with
out even appealing to the Board of Di
rectors 1 The school law, section
43, says teachers miy be dismissed
for incompetency, cruelty, negligence,
immorality or other sufficient cause. Now
who shall remove the teachers under the
law. Not the superintendent in any case.
It'tnust be done by the Board of Educa
tion, and for sufficient cause. Shall the
teacher have no right to know what
that cause is. Shame on such baseness.
I want no teacher to instruct a child of
mine who will sign such a contract, for
she must by doing so lose all indepen
dence, and when that Is lost all Is gone
which Is worth anything. Mr. Editor, I
sign my name in full so as to save the
necessity of hunting up this manuscript
aud comparing it with all the writing
which can be picked up around town to
ascertain the author. A . omixgs.
