To the Kditnr ot the Republic:
A few days since a bill passed in tl c
house of representatives proposing to change
the management of the public schools to a
lioanl of education of each township, com
posed of one member from every sub-di-
! trl..l In tlm tnn.lil,! Thin n-nnlil e,,iiti.
1 .noo!s of the township would be placed.
Thi would be an Improvement on the
present system, but it is not the let thing
that can Is? done. It leave the sub-district
as they are. The most important point is
to get clear uf the sub-district to wipe
them out of existence. Then have a ton n
shlp boaid composed of five or six members,
elected by the people at large. This was
the plan promised hi a bill in the house of
representatives ofTcicd by me in ltl; and
the following is a statement ol some of the
reasons in favor of that bill.
E. G. Dial
Epitoij Rkitiilk The legislation pro
posed by tne in the O'lio house of represen
tatives in regard to me public schools has
been so misappreht nd.-il by some and so
willfully misrepresented by otiiers that I
desire to stale the proposed changes and
the reasons therefor. The township bill
provide that a lioard of education be
elected by the people of each township
district couixstd uf m competent and
judicious iersons. one-third to be elected
ever' year to serve for ihree 3 ears, the
election to be held at the annual election
for township officer by the judge and
clerks thereof. It provides that these six
ju liclous and competent ihtsoiis shall have
the entire management of ttie schoo's of tl e
township district And this means that
the board of education elected by the people
of the township shall exercise all the
power and perform all the duties with
reference to the schools of the township,
that the board of education of a city or
village, or siecial district, exercise and
perform in regard to the schools of the city,
village orsiK-cial district
Now what is there staitliug in thispropu
sition that the county schools should be
put under the same management as the city
President Andrews, of Marietta college,
"Thirty-five years ago the single district
system prevailed in the towns of the state,
a well as in the country: and when the
graded or union system was proposed in a
town for it was introduced Into a great
many towns by local action nfior to the
passage of the general law these same ol
jectionsvvere madetothechangeasare now
made to these proposed legislative meas
ures But w ho would have the old system
restored in our towns? Thechange wrought
was marvelous. In many pls.ee the num
ber of schools was doubled within a j ear or
two. Thi wa partly owing to the fact
that many parent had before ent their
children to private schools and partly
because the school were made so good
that they attracted many children of parents
who were whollv indifferent to their educa
tion. The public schools of the towns were
revolutionized by the changes then made In
It is an infinite misfortune to the in-ople
of Ohm that the law which abandoned the
district svtein in the towns did not do the
same for the country. It is a remarkable
fact that for twenty-eight jear there has
been no act passed in Ohio, looking to the
; improvement of the public schools. What
has been done was In Hie opposite niree-
1 tion. Example: The law authorizing the
probate court to reduce the size ami in
crease the number ot .sutwlistnct.
But let us look at the ut-Iistricts. The
j law requiring townships to be divided Into
iKirb-dsstrlcts undoubtedly roiilemplates an
! approximate equality of voulliof scIi.mi1 ace
1 in the several sub-district. This is made
'certain by the plain language of the law.
Section 3!S7 provides that the school funds
"shall le mi aportio!ied by the board that
the schools in all the sub-district of the
township shall be continued thesauie length
of tinre each year." Then section sail en
acts "that no sub-slistntt snail contain less
than ixtv resident scholars by-eiiumera
twenty pupils; in fifty counties, less than
twentv.T am ln onIy eRnt counties does
the atteudance exceed thirty. In four!
hundred school districts there Is an enum-1
leratlon of less than twenty-five, and thr
are scores of sub-di'tilcf enumerating less
than a dozen; as fdc example, 71 pupils i
enumerated In seven sub-district: 10s pu-
nil distributed, among ten districts and
these are by no means'the smallest? And '
Kt iimt he savs "enumeration." The .
attendance In these scnoois WOUIU noi De
,-r livi. nr sis nunlls each. Take Clark '
county for eiample. There are ninety-four
sub-dlstrieti liny-two i.i mese nam
... ontnneratloti less than the law requires.
The average enumeration in these fifty-two
sub-districts Is imriy-seven pupus. une
township in this county has not one sub
district that enumerates sixty. It has nine
sub-districts enumerating each, as follows:
V ,"3, .15. . -9. 30- lv s-' 34- Another
township having eleven sub-dlstrlcts, in six
of the same, the enumeration In each Is as
follows: 33, 32, lfl, 23, 21. 35; and schools
have beer, kept for the last six months In
two districts of the last named township
with an average attendance of not over five
pupiN. And. let it be remembered, that
the smaller the enumeration the less Is the
average attendance, for a school of half a
dozen pupil Is net to worthless, and
parents will not require their children to at
tend such a school. "You cannot make a
fire without fuel, uo more can you make a
school without pupils."
Now the law, as stated above, requires
that the schools shall be continued the
amp length of time each year. What
equality, what justice Is there In spending
the same amount oi money on a scnooi oi
half a dozen pupils as I spent on a scnooi
of half a hundred? What business sense 1
there In such management particularly
when we remember that the smaller the
school, the less its value? ;
The aggregate enumeration of the fifty-
tne districts as above stated Is 1.942 pupils.
Dividing this number by sixty and we have '
thirty-two schools Instead of fifty-two. ;
That Is an excess of twenty
schools In the county above
the legal number. I do not say that
townhip hoards would reduce uienumoen
to the extent of twenty In the county. Hut i
I say a township board of practical bus-i
Inuss men would not permit a school of

reduce tho numbers In over-crowded schools
and Increase the numbers In the smaller
schools, and in so doing such board would
find It to the advantage of the schools to
drop out from one to two schools, on an
average. In each township, and thu save
from eight to ten thousand dollars to the
ennntv everv vear. and to the state not less
than three-quarters of a million dollars an- j
nually. and jet nave rar oeucr srnmi.s.
But this waste of money Is not the worst
feature of the case. In this irregularity
and confusion and Inequality of sub-districts
very many of the schools are of little
value. Thus the youth of the state are
largely robbed of that which is of more
value than money. And all this because of
the continuance of a system which has teeii
everywhere fonnd wanting.
HIRING FURNISHED HOUSES.
YVIisi Thej Cost lu er Vork Poring
t lis. Winter s-eson.
N'o European city has lietter hotels than
ours, and foreign tourists have been long
used to sTs'niling time and money h them.
Now they are coming to demand greater
home comforts, and of course, at greater
cost; but cost is alsmt ths last thing to bo
considered when a rii-b man is in search of
tho pleasures of life and travel. But the cus
tom ot hiring furnished houses in New York
for the winter season is growing, and it is
saiil by a well known real estate agent in
this city that more uptown mansions have
boon let by their rich owner this winter
than ever liefore.
lu renting a furnished bouse for from
four to six months in the winter every
thing is included in tho furnishings except
linen, silver plate and fine china. Delicate
bits of brit-a-brnc are commonly put away
by the owners, because tenants prefer to be
free from the care of them and without re
sjionslbility for their safety. The causes
which bring the fashionable and elegantly
furnished houses into the market for a part
of the year are various. Many New York
families spend their winters in Europe.
Sometimes a deoth in the family make it
desirable to look for rest and change of sur
roundings in travel. Again, WHshlugton is
developing a fashionable social act in the
winter, and many New- York families repair
thither for th time and let their home
mansions In this way they are relieved of
the core of their houvs, and the wt of tho
winter's travel is reduced, if not, in fact,
Many well known New Y"ork families do
themselves live in furnished houses in the
winter anil spend tlieir summers in travel
abroad. It costs no more than lo maintain
an establishment all the year round and live I
in it, and the arrangement has many ad
vantage to those who love to roam.
The demand for elegantly furnished
houses in fnhiouable neigliborhoods begin
early in the autumn and lasts until about the
middle of December, the bct customers
usually coming at the last lieca-ie they stay
in the country as late as isihle, knowing
that, as they are willing to pay almost any
price, they are sure of getting a house when
they want it For lieriods of from four to six
mouths rentals range from $."500 to $1,000
a month for a very elegantly furnished
house, and in tho spring the lempoi ary ten

linen, and take flight for the country or sea

l.nga.1 as an Orator.
Gen. Logan never had either the habits or
tho tastes of n student. He was thoroughly
posted on war topics and ililical history,
but seldom reading anything except the
ncwsraiiers and poetry, of which be was very
fon 1. He could recite many of the plays of
Shakesieare from memory, and the poems of
Mncaulay, with their martial measure, were
his favorites in verse. He was fond of Burns,
also, and recited his lines frequently He
was by no means an illiterate man. for he
had a good education for the days in which
he lived, and graduated at a Kentucky col
lege. His carelessness in sptfh gave him
the reputation of being a jk.- grammarian,
but he could have corrected his own manu
script if he had chosen. Mrs. Logan always
revised his written sixsvhe, not liccause he
was not able to do it. but because he pre
ferred that she should. Perhaps the best
specimen of his oratory was an address he
delivered at the dedication of the monument
to Gen. Mcl'herson in this city in 18 18, and
it was really a fine production. He wrote
the most of it in pencil while on his way
from Chicaco to Washington on the cars.
and after hU arrival he shut himself up in '
his room all night revising the manuscript,
Mrs. Logan was not with him on this occa-
sion, and she never saw the speech until it
appeared in print. New Y'ork Sun.

with all tbo indignation of disappointed
hunger aud then send him off to do his
work over again. But ho grows hard?ned
by degrees to this work just as he does to
verse making, and in time can joko and

Demand fnr Gobi Coins.
Superintendent Fox, of the Philadelphia
mint, says: "We have incessant demand
for gold coins of this year's mintage. The
detriment has antliorized me to strike only
a limited number, and we started in this
week more to keep up the continuity of
years than for any other reason. The sup
ply i not near sufficient to meet the de
mand. Whether the application. are to
meet actual necessities or for secxilatioii I
do not know. There are a number of iieo
pie who speculate on tho new coinage. The
disposition is to accumulate fine sets of
cabinet coins, carry them distance away
and sell Ihem at considerable advance. I
look ujion it as an outrage that this institu
tion should be used surreptitiously for pro
curing coin to. in a measure, corner the
mm set. ami I am exercising all the cire I
can so that the lorlion I nm jienuitted to
deliver shall go only to such directions as are
strictly legitinuif and not for speculation."

A STABTLIHQ FACT.
It is not commonlv known that a large
pro)ortion of the rlieuniatism aud neu
ralgia extant is traceable directly to the
- diseased condition or imperfect action ol
the kidnevs and liver, therefore a remedy
wh'n h cures the resulting disease mul
have found and smitten the first cause.
Many persons 11-ing Athlophoros for
rheumatism and neuralgia have been
surprised to find that chronic disorders of
ii liver and kidneys have also lc.n
greatly relieved and they have written
for an explanation. The fact i, that the
remislv acts directly on ihese organs,
. leaiising them from all irritating sUb
stances and regulating their action. Taken
in connection with Athlophoros Pills this
is, without exception, the most valuable
sidncv and liver remedy in the norId,and
will cure n large proiHirtion of thote who
have these diseases.
Sail! William E. Ilutchi-m, living at 22
Siith Slufrr Si., Springfield. O, " I don't
lliink there isany medicine like Athlopho
ros for rheumatism. Previous to my using
tin. medicine I used about every kind of a
rheumatic medicine I ever heard of, both
reviihr and irregular without avail. At
the time I commenced with Athlophoros
I was suffering very much. In a very
remarkably short time, in fact I had only
taken a few doses, I experienced verv
decided relief. It is now over two years
sim-e 1 ucd it and I have had no Khenma
lism since to speak of. Alhlophorosdidits
work for me and will do the same for others.
I have In-en a resident of Springfield
for over thirty years, am well known
and would gladly verify the above fads to
any one who may lie afflicted with rheuma
tism.'' Every druggist should keep Athlophoros
aud Athlophoros Pills, but where they can
not be bounht of the druggist the Athlo
phoros Co.,' 1 12 Wall St., New York, will
send either (carriage paid) on receipt of
regular price, which is $1.00 per bottle
for Athlophoros and 50c for Pills.
