HOW A MAN CAN
It is the case with a large
this as well as other countries that they Jive lrom uanu iu iuuuwi ,
in other words, the end of every month and every year finds them
if, indeed, with all their little debts paid with nothing laid by
to meet the ordinary contingencies of sickness, loss of employment
or the like; and this, though a man may oe lnaubuiouD, miu,
healthy, constantly employed, and punctually paid tor his laoer.
The size of his family, the smallness of his wages, or some cause
other than tippling and dissipation, kee- s him always at the ex
tremity of spending his last cent. He never seems 10 get aueau ,
he is constantly in the drag. If he gets a dollar ahead to-day,
..t-rw.i.i Monoscitv nuts him behind to-morrow. 1 here is
one item, however, he always
keep paid up with a tolerahie degree 01 promptness j una item
rent. To keep a home for his wife and little ones, everything else
must give way. Little luxuries, little comforts, even necessaries,
must stand aside to enable him to meet the demand of the land
lord for his rent.
Mossy paid for Rent
If he pavs his landlord, how much harder would he try to pav
himself, if he was his own landlord, if he knew the money so paid
was not. lost, but gradually paying for his home ? Would he not
work with greater satisfaction, knowing that he would some day
own his home, free of debt, bought with the money he would oth
erwise have paid for his rent ? , . x. a
It is chieilv owing to Building Associations mat, liiuusuu i
working men in the citv of Philadelphia to-day own and occupy
(heir own houses and possess others besides from which they re
ceive handsome little incomes in rent. "What man has done man
can do aeain." Bear in mind the words of the wise man, "If any
one tells you that the workingman can become rich otherwise than
by labor and saving, do not listen to him ; he is a poisoner.'
Rents Paid are the Toor Man's Wasted Capital.
Therefore, become a landlord instead of a tenant, a house
holder instead of a house-renter. Procure a home tor yourself and
family by buying a lot iu
The lots are large in size. They are all accessible. The prices
are very cheap. Any laboring man can apply the money heuow
pays for rent to the purchase of a lot and build a house, and in five
. ears will pav ior house aud lot, and not pay rent at all. His pro
perty will be worth fifty per cent more in five years than it h now.
The location is convenient to School, Ohurch and Work Shops.
It is healthy it is quiet. Don't pay any more rents, but be your
own landlord, and have a Home of your own.

They are not as careful in em
ploying a teacher t guide and di
rect their childron as they would be
in buying a horse. The price is the
sole ebject. Nothing asked about
qualifications, habits, morals, suc
cess or experience, aud how few
ever ask about the certificate.
Now if there was any benefit
pecuniary, social or political, to be
derived from such a course, there
mightbe some shadow of an oxcusa

a matter, that it i not-werth the
Socially and politically, the cheap
teacher is either a cipher or a
micrhtv mischief maker, lo- the
school he is an injury.
For the cheap teacher is gener
ally totally incompetent to do his
work . as a consequence the school
does not nor cannot advance.
The common objection to paying
teachers is, that they only work
six hour a day. This is a ruiaUke,
whatever may be said about it or
whoever" may say it.
The progressive teachers, those
who command high salaries, put in
more time at their work than any
other class of workmen. Such a
teacher prepares his lessons, studies
the nature of his pupils, investi
gates, plans and arranges work of
interest for his school from day to
day and looks after many thing of
which those who have never taught,
are entirely ignorant.
Did the "Farmer"vevor stop to
consider bow much time tbe teaoh-
spenda te qualify himself to
teach, the expense attached thereto,
the outlay in books, papers, educa
tional journals and many school
applicances which the directors
themselves should furnish ?
Does he over think who pays for
tho holiday treat, the reward merit
oards, books and prizes which bis
eager child brings home or that
they cost anything ? The teacher,
if he wishes to command tho respect
of his pupils or exert any influence
over them, must wear a little bet
ter clothing than the average Far
mer oi wnrtnmn. i-f.mustreowtrin
ute hie share to the support of re
ligion and other charities, and by
virtue of position, he has many
outside duties to perferra in the
Now Mr. "Farmer' could you
bear all tbe expense, do all the
teacher's work, suffer "the thousand
little annoyances of the school room
and be the subject of gossip for the
district und still get rich on the ex
travagant salary of thirty-three and
one third dollars a month for six
months of the year, or the still more
exorbitant demand of $40 a mouth
for four months.
Who ever heard of a teacher's
getting rich ?
We think too, that" the directors
should see to this matter,'' and see
to it well ; see to it as the law re
quires them to do ; and see to it
that all that the law requires to be
taught viz : Reading. Writing.
Arithmetic, Grammar, Geography,
Spelling and History, be taught to
all by a competent teacher, and see
to it that he be Pais in proportion
to' the success of his teaching. Yes,
"let them fix their own prices for
teaching," and let them teach at
their own pricos too. Your employ
ing a teacher for S17 is certainly a
step iu the right direction, especial
ly ahice you published it in yeur
boastfull way. It encourages the
cheap teachers and puts the "reas
onable teachers oa their guard."'
We hope all the directors will
follow the oxample." The sooner
the better lor the higher priced
teachers. For the sooner the schools
become dsraoralized. entirely bro
ken up. by such a course, the sooner
will a complete revolu ion in our
country bcoo1i take place-
No wonder tho town schools are
so far a head of our country schools.
As fast as they improve or a teach
er succeeds, they advance the pay of
their teacher and thus encourage the
teacher in his work, and who is any
poorer for it?
Yes; "the teacher that teaches
the most reasonable (in every sense
of the word) should have tho best
certificate," and he will certainly
getiton Aceount of the rules of the
Board of Exnmiuers. All the teach
ers who will teach fur a dollar a
day next winter, should have five
minutes notice to get out of the
eonnty. and the Board of Examiners
should act as a committee to see
that they do "get out'' forever.
Now teachers, qualify yourselves
for your work, set your prices and
stick to them. Don t stoop so low
as to make the school an auction
sale to be disposed of to the highest
bidder. Have no fears. It is the
intent of the law that you should
have reasonable pay for your work.
I know tho course of the Board of
Examiners in the past baa tended
to help you in this matter and I be
lieve it will continue to do so.
Don't let a director cut down
your price because you are a lady.-
The man who does that simply b 4
cause of your sex has notyetloarn
ed to respect his mother, wife or
sister and would mistreat yeu with
out provocation. Don't oxort your
self to engage with Buch a set of
So much is said about examina
tion of teachers and their qualifica
tions but'who over heard anything
said about the qualifications of dir
ector?. If thero is anything prac
tiial or nseful in the "civil service
r-jtorm ' policy, nero would be a
good place to try it. At least make
every director show that he can
sign his own name to an order and
give evidence that he cau read that
See that he is n man of reason,
common souse, and sound judgment
and whose standard of judging Is
not his dear self alone. If o should
be a man of general kdowledgo
and should take interest enough in
the school to visit it occasionally
and see for himself. He should
not put too much faith in his chil
dren's reports, and should stand
by the ceicher whom he helps to em
ploy in all 'that is right.
When school directors learn to
know their duties better and sym
pathizo'more with tho teachers, the
schools will be better, and they
will be better satisfied to pay reas
onab.o wages. Justice.
New Plymouth, O, May 8, 1884.
George O'Neil departed this life,
at his residence in Starr Towmship,
Hocking County, O, Sab. eve, May
4, '84, in the 62nd year ofhis age.
Another of our best citizens gone :
Mr. O'Neil had a short illness.
Only two weeks from the day of his
funeral, he was in tbe field working,
and came to the house suffering
with a severe pain under the knee.
Drs. Aplin end Hannells were call
ed and pronounced erysipelas of an
unusual and serious kind. The
pain grew almost unbearable, and
the Drs. talked of amputation to
save life and yet doubted his living
through tho operation. After sev
eral days the pain ceased entirely,
and the Drs. thought life would
slowly ebb away also, and the re.
suits proved that they were correct.
Mr. O Neil was not a member of
auy church, but held to the Presby
terian, of which he was a supporter.
Bis 'pastor was absent till near
the close of his illness, but on his
return, went immediately to see
him. On .talking with him abou:
the great change which be himself
was expecting, he said he trusted
in Christ as bis hope of heaven.
That was Friday afternoon, and
Sabbath evening he was not, for at
i p. ra , teTleft this world for an eth
er, leaving behind an afflicted fam
ily and Bjrrowing friends.
George was a bachelor, and yet
he was the head of a family.
At the decease of two brothers,
he took the widow ot one and her
two children, aud the two father,
less and motherless of the other, to
his own home, and has loved and
cared for them ever s-nce, aud also
a maiden sister, Mis Bosa assisted
him in this care, making a family
They all resided at the old home
stead, aud these children thus never
felt their own father's loss.
A kind and loving uncle, a thought
ful add tender brother, a good citi
zen and neighbor has left us.
An honest and upright man, and
at his fuueral, which was
held at Pleasant Point M. E.
(Jhuich.Rev. T. M.Stevesou preach
ing the sermon as he bad that of
his aged mother years ago, a largo
concourse of people gathered to pay
their last tribute of respect to tbeir
fiend, George O'Neil. So niaay
came they could not all get in the
house. His remains were laid to
rest , till the groat day, in the cem
etry not far from his late residence.
There seems.to be a ground swell.
Putyouroar to the earth and it
sounds like the tramp of the boys
behind the "old ticket" with exul
tant shouts lor Tildeu and Keforin.
