PUBLISHKD KVEIIY FRIDAY MOKNIMU.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 0, 1892.
Tub Christmas number of Fetteis

Those who claim to know.say that
the L. H. & W. R. R. will be extended
to Hartford within the next
two years. So mote it be.
Mrs. Maky Frame, a woman of
talent and education, of Richmond,
Ind., has announced that the world is
to corao to an end in 1809.
Jay Gould, the great railroad
magnate, who for years has controled
the money, and largely the other
markets of tho world, died at his
home in New York City, on the 3d
inst.He is said to be worth $100, 000,
Puoe.O.M. Siiultz's talk Saturday
in the Teachers Association, on
"Can't, Can and Will," was a happy
hit. Those teachers who were in
town but absent fromthe meeting weie
treated to a happy, though kindly
Though small in uumber, the
County Association held at the College
Hall on last Saturday, was no
doubt one of tho most successful
educational meetings ever held in the
county. Let tho good work go on.
The next meeting is announced for
the 1st Saturday in January and the
program will be out in ample time.
A roruLAR young lady in
society had a wayward lover,
and attempted to reform him by
male attire and hunting him up
at his favorite resorts, but the police
appeared on the scene and broke into
her arrangements by placing her under
arrest. Beware, young ladies, if you
have a wayward lover, "shifthim."
The various Democratic papers are
now claiming that the Republican
Senate should pass the Tariff legislation
promised the people in the Chi
cago platform and thus assume the
responsibility for the miserable policy
advocated in that wonderful addition
to political history. The Democracy
is afraid to assume the
of carrying out its own promises.
No wonder. It would ruin
any party to do so.
The suggestion for a Reading Club
among the teachers of the county, is
very opportune. The Ohio County
Teachers Institute, no doubt has one
of the best libraries in the State, but
the vast majority of the books lie idle
throughout the year and are never
read. A Reading Club iu connection
with the library would be a great
incentive to more thorough and systematic
preparation on the part of
the teachers, thereby insuring in their
work greater satisfaction and greater
benefits to their pupils.
Since Mr. Cleveland has been
elected President for the second time
he has grown quite brave. It will be
remembered that thirty years ago he
was afraid to shoulder his gun and
march oil to the South so he
hired a substitute to do that for him,
but since the 8th ult., he has become
so heroic as to shoulder his gun and
invade Virginia. But if we are to
judge the case by its results, it appears
that tho advantage lies with
the substitute, for while it was not
against the law for him to shoot rebels
Clev3 finds himself arrested for shooting
game in the Old Dominion.
.President James McGinnis, of
Oweusboro, has published the program
of the meeting of the County and
City Superintendents Union, which is
to be held at Louisville on the 2!)tb
and 30th, inst. The session promises
to be a very interesting one, as
tho subjects for discussion tiro live
and the gentlemen to whom they arc
assigued arc among our ablest school
men. This organization, which was
organized last December, can do a
great work for tho educational interests
of the State, if the various County
and City Superintendents give it their
support. In education as in other
matters, uuion is strength. No official
duties are apt to require the attention
of the Superintendents on these
dates, so that absentees from this
very important meeting will be rather
hard pressed for excuses The program
will not only be of interest to
Superintendents, but to teachers and
education generally, as one will conclude
after turning to his November
number of that most excellent publication,
the educational Oourant, where
tho program will bo fouud at length.
Dear reader, you will notice that
wetay his in referring to tho Courant,
for it is unjust to presumo that any
live teacher docs himself tho unkind"
ness to be without that prince among
We have been for a long time ac
customed to hearing kind words nud
reading complimentary notices of the
Courant from persons in our own
State who say they find it useful on
all occasions, but wo were iust a
littlo surprised and notn littlo pleased
to read in tho Hartford Republican
tho following from a letter written t
that paper from Danville, Indiana.
After describing Columbus Day ox-,
crcise at tho Central Normal College,
the writer says:
"At tho close of the exercises hero
everybody repaired to the public
school building, where tho township
exercises were to take place. Thoso
exercises were exactly the program
given in the September number at the
educational Courant, of Louisville,
Ky. They were well rendered, nnd
were enjoyed by tho audience."
Editoii Repuiiucan. I left
on tho Stli of November for
Louisville, returning to our school.
This boing election day, of course I
found things at a maximum pitch;
only lasted a short while, howoor,
as tho election is all ovor everything
roigns quiet, except office applicants
which seems to be
Tho result of tho election is
indued a surpriso to most ovoryono.
I, having boon confined closely in
school, havo heard but little gossip.
Wo havo a very fine school with
a fino faculty. Our boarding liouso
is nlso elegant, run by our Ohio
county friends, Mr. and Mrs. Jno.
W. Raloy; has quite a number of
boardors all of whom satisfied. No ono
has an occasion to leave this house,
oxcopt one who is prone to be somewhat
boisterous, then ho is only asked
to let some quiet man take his
placo. By tliis moans they have almost
exclusively what maybo termed
soloct boardors. I room witii Dr.
J. C. Pannonborg, V. S., of 111. Live
Stock Association. The Doctor is
ono of tho first-class mon of our
school. Comes well recommended by
a number of first-class men of Rock-
ford and Chicago. The Doctor received
a thanksgiving box from his
wife and friends, Mcllie and Kato.
Tho box contained quite a number
of eatables, which was as fino as
could be gotton up. He invited
Drs. Conoll, Cranford and Magan,of
Texas, to take supper with him and
as to what a nice timo we had was
explained by the .timo we got up
next morning. However, Dr.
got up in time to perform
tho difficut operation in surgery, of
which ho seems to be almost an expert.
Everything has gone smoothly
in our school except an overcoat
thief made a raid on tho boys and
stole several overcoats, but as a reward
for that ho was lodged in jail,
nud tho boys found their coats in u
pawn shop. B. W.
County Teachers' Association.
Pursuant to call made by Supt.
Rogers several teachers of the county
met at tho College Hall, Saturday,
3rd, at 10 a. m, Mr. O. M. Shultz
was made Temporary Chairman aud
Miss Dora E. Gibson,Temporary Secretary.
There being so few present
the meeting adjourned until 1 o'clock
At the appointed hour Mr. Shultz
called the meeting to order. A permanent
organization was effected, Mr.
Shultz being elected President of the
Association, Miss Dora E. Gibson,
Secretary, nnd Miss Lucy B. Towns-
end; Treasurer. The inaugural remarks
of the President were well le-
ceived, pertaining as they did to the
importance of the proposed work, setting
forth tho benefits to be derived
from the hearty co-operation of earnest
teachers in such an organization.
Dr. Alexander's address, "Why
Wc Fail" should have been heard by
every teacher of the county. The
grand truths, logically enunciated,
could not fail to win the approbation
of the faithful, zealous workers in
ourrauks, norcould they fail to strike
also with telling effect, thoso who,
themselves, acknowledge they are
failure iu the profession of teaching.
Ho said, "The chief cause offniluro
is, they do not make their work paramount
above all else." Other causes
mentioned were, lack of system,
lack of discipline, lack of qualification
aud lack of self-control. His address
lnruishcd much food for thought
and interspersed, as it was, with
laughable persoual reminiscences it
proved a most valuable nnd interesting
featuro of the afternoon's
Miss Evu Morton, witii a grace nnd
dignity, peculiarly her own, favored
the nudienco with a Vocal Solo which
was greatly enjoyed by all.
Tho pen picture of "My School"
by Miss Lucy Townsend, won lusty
applauses. That her heart is in tho
work, is apparent and tho people of
Sulphur Springs have cause to congratulate
themselves that they have
such a teacher as Miss Lucy is earnest,
capablo and energetic.
The Choruses by the Choral Club
were beatifully rendered and were
much enjoyed by the audience, as
was manifested by tho hearty ap.
Mr. Shuitz's address, "Tho Cant's,
Can and WilP'abound in many wholesome
truths and will be productive of
much good, for undivided attention
was accorded him throughout his
speech and much favorable comments
have been awarded him since.
Tho Secretary suggested that a
Reading Circle bo orgauized iu connection
with the Association, in order
to extend tho practice of reading
among the teachers, encourage a inoro
general uso of tho books in the
Library, and to render the rea d
Ing more effective. Tho sugcstion
met with thu npprovnl of n number
of the teachers present and 'twas decided
to inaugurnto it nt tho next
meeting of tho County Association.
Miss Lucy Townseud, Prof. J. W.
Lytic nnd tho Secretary were appointed
to draft a program and name the
date for the next meeting. Thcro
being no other business to transact
after a beautiful Vocal Quartet by
Messrs. Nelson, Foster, and
Birkshirc the body adjourned to meet
again tho first Saturday iu January.

The Association regretted that oflico
duties prevented the attendance of
Miss Maggie Nail rendered
assistance in the music furnished.
She is an excellent instructor and,
moreover, iier work is appreciated.
The teachers felt complimented by
tho presence of so many of thu citizens
of Hartford. Your presence is
encouraging aud tho teachers will tic
plcacd to have you with them again.
Some one said that he "had enough
of school during the week without
thinking of it on Saturday. Was
; he a true teacher or a person having
charge of a school for "revenue ou
One is inclined to nsk, "Arc horse
sales of more vita! importance to
teachers than seeking to devise ways
and means for n better development
of the human intellect, a broader expansion
of the soul?"
No part of the exercises were more
heartily enjoyed than the instrumental
selection rendered by Miss Verda
Duke. Her renditions are characterized
by her matchless power of expression
nud skillful execution.
The teachers who came to draw
tlicir month's wages, perhaps felt they
had discharged their whole duty when
they had signed the receipt in the
Superintendent's oflice and endorsed
the check and received the money.
Did no thought of obligations to pa
tron.j, pupils, trustees, Superintendent
and self, suggest itself at the ringing
of the College bell?
Let every teacher of the countv,
who was absent Saturday, subscribe
to the pledge made by those present
nt the meeting: "I shall do all in
my power to make the Teachers'
County Association n success.'' D.

Tho renders of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science lias
been able to cure m nil its stages,
and that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh
Curo is the only positive cure known
to the inedic.il fraternity. Catarrh
being n constitutional disease, requires
a constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh cure is taken internally, ac
ting directly upon the blood and
mucous surfaces of tho system, thereby
destroying the foundation of tho
disease, and giving the patient strength
by building up the constitution and
assisting nature in doing its work.
Tho proprietors have so much faith
iu its curative powers, that they offer
ono hundred dollars for any case that
it fails to cure. Send for list of testimonials.

Since our last report death has
visited our school and taken from us
one of our members. In the latter
part of last Soptembor Mr. Seth
Swan, a young man about eighteen
years of ago, of Henderson county,
came to this town to attend school.
Ho matriculated and was at his recitation
only one a-half days, when he
was taken sick and was called upon
to give up tho work that he had only
just began. Ho lay upon his bod of
pain and suffering for eight long
weeks, when on Inst Monday
about four o'clock God relieved
him of his suffeiings by taking his
soul from this mortal world to its eternal
home in heaven. Mr. Swan bore
his severe nillictiou without a

tho will of God that he should not re-,
cover that he was ready to go, nnd
when the summons came he submitted
without a struggle. Although he
hud been with us but a short tunc, ns

wo knew him, becauso of the peculiar
