TEJVCHEKS TO HAVt LIBRARY ty.
At a teachers' meeting b-ld at
Providence Forge September 25 and
27, it was decided to begin this yeer
ta collect a number ot the best
books and magazines published for "u
?etchers. Each teacher has con-1y
tributed $1 to this purpose which
makes available $27 in the beginning
These books and magazines will
circulate among the teachers and
gi e everyone an opportunity to read
during the year as many professional
books as she may have time for at
a cost of only $1. The library sri
be added to from year to year until
it shall become a valuable asset of
the teachers' association oi these
Everyone who has taught, espec
lally in the country, know how hard
it is to get things to read. Very

books and magazines to read and by
this cooperation on the part of teach?

The division superintendent takes
a dozen copies of books and as many
magazines on his round to the
schools, giving out new books and
receiving books which have been
read. A teacher has an opportunity
to get a new book every month. A
magazine may be mailed to a teacher
Nothing has been done which
marks progress more than the es?
tablishment of this library. We want
to see the time come when the
country school will be so attractive
that the best teachers who are qual?

the country school instead of the
city; the time when the teacher wil?
look from the city to the country
instead of from the country to the
A modern school house with
modern equipment, with grounds
improved and beautified and a
keener interest with harmonious co
operation on the part of all the peo?
ple living in the community will
foster the ideal to which we are
working. This and norning else
will bring to us conditions that we
so much desire. The influence oi
the school must be felt and enjoyed
in every home and it must be a
help-influence if it is to be desired.

eir returns from correct data and

ct them, which they willingly did

hants before the jury, it should be
aid that they expressed their will
agness to comply with the letter
ind spirit of the law in every re
ipect. p.nd the incorrectness of ihe

nformation or ignorance of the in?
tent of the law. Some of th-m

such stock as they had on hand
