Mr. John Coulter was made
the victim of a swindling agent
a few week since. A roan piv
ing bis name as Brown called
upon him, aud after considera
ble talk prevailed upon hira to
take the agency for the sale of
pruning shears. Mr. U. does
not read writing, and the agent
produced what he represented
to be duplicate contracts, one
of which he signed, and gavj to
Mr. U., and 0. signed, by
nuking his mark, the other,
which Brown or whatever his
name was,-pocketed. It has
since turned up as a note lor
sixty dollars, . D. Dodge
having bought it. It was pre
sented to the Vlnlon County
National Bank lor sale before
it was offered to Mr. Dodge, but
having reaiou to believe the
note was obtained by Iruud,
they dc'ineJ to purchase.

Mr. Adams, the foreman, con

the publicher of a religious pa

SCHOOL ELECTION EXTRAORDINARY.
The School Board has come
to a hitch in the matter of em
ploying a Superintendent for
the ensuing year. There are
two applicants, M. R. Barnes,
who has been Superintendent
for seven years, and II. W.
Coultrap. Mr. Barnes has been
getting 1800 per year; Mr.
Coultrap offers his services for
the same position at $600.
One member of the Board,
Paris II or ton is in favor of con
tinning Mr. Barnes, John P.
Dunkle, is ia favor or Mr.
Coultrap, and the third one,
Mr. Bothwell, declines to de
cide tho matter, and they have
agreed to submit it to a
vote of the people, on next
Monday afternoon, at the
school house, between the
hours of four and six o'clock.

such a proceeding, but inas
much as the Board iavites an

the schools when they were
about equal to no schools at
all, and has managed them suc
cessfully during the past seven
years. Mr. Coultrap has had
no experience whatever in su
perintending. As to the matter
of salary, if Mr. Barnes' seven
years experience witn our
schools is not worth the differ
ence, it is hardly worth while
to have experience. . Besides
the salary paid Mr. Barnes in
below the average paid Super
intendents in the State, and, as

charge of oilier schools, which

But the matter of salary is of
no moment, lor we have no
doubt men could be found who
would undertake to superin
tend our schools for $300, or
even less. The best interests
of the schools is the matter to
be consulted, and we hope
there will be a lull vote with
that one object in view. .
