It is hard to predict what will
come up before the General As
sembly for its consideration, but
there is one matter, in our judg
ment, worthy of much thought
and in the coming session there
should be a way found that
would compel the graded schools
of this State to use text-books
adopted by the State Board of
Education. The school book
problem is one which has given
the people much concern, and
the law now requiring county
superintendents to keep and sell
books at cost was intended to be
a saving to the people, but if
the superintendents of graded
schools are to be allowed to ig
nore the State adoption and
adopt books of their own choice,
then the intention of the law is
not carried out. As we under
stand it, schools not in special
school districts, or the ordinary
country schools, must use the
books adopted by the State
Board, but in the special dis
tricts they can use them or not,
as their superintendents may de
cide. This is not right-it is a
discrimination which operates
against those people who have
expressed a willingness to pay
an additional tax for educational
The books adopted by the
State can be bought at cost, and
there is no doubt about it, thou
sands of dollars are saved to
the people. We contend, if the
books adopted are good enough
for a part of the children of the
State, they certainly must be
good enough for all, and we see
so reason or justice in compell
ing those who have burdened
themselves with an additional
tax to be deprived of the advan
tages given those who depend
solely on the three mill consti
tutional tax for the maintenance
of their schools.
The school book concerns are
traveling men all through this
State to introduce books which
were not adopted by the board,
and in many instances they have
succeeded in getting their books
taken. What is the result of
this? A book dealer,and not the
county school officer handles the
book and of course he makes a
profit and possibly the teachers
get a commission out of the sale.
We are convinced that the peo
ple have been systematically
mulct, that superintendents and
teachers of schools might make
something "on the side" for
themselves, and unless the Leg
islature takes a hand in the mat
ter and fixes it so that the book.
adopted must be used by town
as well as country schools, the
educational revival in this State
will be considerably checked.
Now that politics is out of the
way, the people should rejoice at
the prospect of being able to get
something else to discuss. We
want to keep them reminded,
that there is no law which forces
the farmers of this country to
hold up their hands and allow
the fertilizer trust to commit
robbery, by charging extortion
ate prices, and we want to warn
people against that class of men
who mix inferior grades athomne,
to sell on credit. We have known
of inferior fertilizers "mixed at
home" which were sold on time
for the price of first class goods
that was little better than dirt.
It is bad enough to be robbed
by the Trust, but when the
Trust thief makes grab and then
turns you over to a fleecer at
home, it is time the consumer
open his eyes. We have no in
terest in fertilizers whatever,
but we know it to be a fact that
their is no article of commerce
used by the people which admits
of more swindle than commercial
fertilizer, and as tihe Trust has
gotten control of this important
article we are satisfied they will
squeeze as much price out of it
as tile people will submit ' to.
The farmer can block the game
of the Trust if he will, and he
c'an also drive the little "mixer"
out of the market. The way to
to the analysis: this can be done
without cost by sending a sample
to the State chemist, and where
a fertilizer does not come up to
the grade purchased, refuse to
pay and prosecute. Then again:
stand together and if the Trust
undertakes to extort. boycott it
and let it keep the stuff in its

was submnitted by Rev. A. P.
Wilson, and was discussed by
Mr. Wilson, Mrs. Goodall and
others. The first speaker urged
the importance of supplying the
schools with the best helps and
appliances, and the necessity, of
the most thorough preparation
of teachers, while Mrs. Goodall's
remarks had special reference to
the work in the infant depart
Following this discussion Dr.
C. C. Brown gave a good talk on
China, and the mission work of
the Baptist church in that coun

State missions, and the report
submitted by Mr. B. P. Cuttino,
of this city. The report stated
that over six hundred dollars had
been already contributed during

associations in this matter.
-Saturday morning the associa

exercises conducted by Rev. A.
After miscellaneous business
the report on the state of the
churches was read by Rev. M.

good speeches from Messrs. Con

emphasis on the importance of
discipline in the churches.
The aged Minister's then came
in for consideration. The report
was read by Rev. J. W. Kenny,
and states that there are now 35
beneficiaries. ~Dr. Brown spoke
to the report and said that there
are 300 good women in the State
who are helping him to take care
of these wards. He begun the

A Village Blacksmith Saved His ILittle Son's
Mr. H. H. Black, the well known village
blacksmith at Grahamsville. Sullivan county,
N. Y.. says: "Our little son. five vears old. has
always been subject to croup, anil so bad have
the attacks been that we have feared many
times that he would die. We have had the doc

It seems to dissolve the tough mucus and by
giving frequent doses when the croupy symp

croup is cured before it gets settled." There is

know the price of the same goods at other places? Is this your case, my friend?
If this is the way you trade, my friend, let me advise you to come to our
store, where the Tree of Bargains grows, and

elsewhere, regardless of the long acquaintances.
One of our competitors says we don't sell anything but trash, but that islis
old cry. He can't sell a pair of shoes or a hat or dress without saying some
thing 'mean about his competitors, but we all know him, and if what he says is
true My! My! ain't there lots of trash worn and sold here? If everybody in the
whole "country did not know him and know how much of what he says to be
lieve we would say more. But, friends, don't forget the TREE OF BARGAINS.
We live by our trade and for our trade.
Yours for bargains,
R ACKET - STORE,.
S. I. TILL, Proprietor.
