To School Directors Suggestions
About Secondary Schools. .
I will distribute the school blanks
June 27th, and I want all the direc
tors present, as I wish to give you
some instructions in regard to
the time of making some reports that
hove been neglected in the past. I
have written to all the leading pub
lishing companies and they all agree
if their books are adopted, to furnish
books at introductory and exchange
prices. I would be glad if any of the
teachers or directors would write for
catalogue and terms. I was asked to
examine and recommend a lot of
charts for use in the public schools in
Warren county. I refused to recom
mend them because I thought all of
them valueless except Appleton's
reading charts, which can be bought
for less money direct from the com
pany. Any teacher or director want
ing charts for use in the public schools
I will furnish you a catalogue, and
assist you in ordering.
I will mention a few schools that
think should be secondary, so the di
rectors may find out from the patrons
whether they want these schools
made secondary or not.

A Natural Conclusion.
It is natural that those who have
been deceived by the various nos
trums that are continually offered to
the public should demand a more
substantial testimonial than the sim
ple declaration of those who are in
terested in the sale of a medicine.
Recognizing the justice of the de
mand, the Swift Specific (S. S. S.)
Company, of Atlanta, have embodied
in pamphlet form a few of the more
notworthy testimonials that have
come to ' them unsolicited. This
pamphlet, together with other in
teresting matter,, they will take
pleasure in sending to any address.

The resolutions adopted by the Jef
ferson county (Ky.) alliance, as pub
lished in the Farmer's Home Jour
nal, are something out of the usual
order, and show that organization to
be composed of sound thinking men.
They want the direct tax money
repaid the state turned into the pub
lic school fund; they ask the legisla
ture to make a liberal appropriation
for a state exhibit at the world's fair;
they want all persons convicted of
petit larceny and misdemeanors put
toworkonthe public roads, instead
of being confined in the jails and sup
ported by1 the tax payers; they
want a law requiring all children to
attend school at least ten months in
the year provided school be accessible
to them; and lastly, they ''demand a
tax of one dollar on every dog in
the state,, said tax to be collected and
held as a fund to pay- for sheep killed
by dogs, the surplus, if any, to go in-
, to the public school fund."
These are all reforms which would
be of practical benefit to the farmer,
and if the alliances in Tennessee
would unite in making such de
mands, it would be highly to their
credit. And with these reforms car
ried into effect, the farmers would be
so busy enjoying their prosperity
they would have no time to waste
with third parties and Ocala resolutions.
