REPUBLIC, TUESDAY EVENETG MAY 31 1887
NOT EVEN CONSIDERED.
A Spoctutvn at tn l-'luo Fooling of the
I'mrnt Board of Education.
it hat Just come out that one of the ap
plicants for a position as teacher in the city
schools, at the recent election of the same,
was Hiss Schroeder, a sister of Corporal
Henry Schroeder, the brave young man
who was drowned at Camp Carthage some
thing over a year ano. Since that terrible
day every man, woman and child, almost.
In Sprimrtield has felt a deep sympathy for
the bereaved mother and sister of Cortoral
Schroeder, for he was their only support.
Miss Schroeder will graduate the present
ear with the outgoing high school class and
is a young lady of good attainments,
and has a quiet, self-command that would
have made her successful in care of the
young. And yet In the face of all this, and
particularly in the face of her attempt at
making her support for herself and more
than widowed mother, the mugwump board
of education or mora properly the teach
ers" committee never gave her application
any consideration whatever.
This is an outrageous injustice, and the
public ought to be acquainted with the
facts in the case.
There is also much dissatisfaction, and
the prospect of a lively kick over the sum
mary failure to re-elect Principal McFar
land of the Western house.

Prof. Anderson At lllackv.
On Thursday and Friday evenings June 2
and n. Professor Anderson the famous
magician appears at Black's. The Cleve
land Loader says of him:
"Tlie wonderfully clever feats of legerde
main of Prof. Anderson, who in the art of
deceiving the eyes with quickness of his
hands is the equal of Ilarmannorllartman.
His tricks for the most were new and were
heartily applauded. White it is
well understood that all is sim
ply "a sleight of Land" yet
some of his tricks were so mysterious that
they seemed almost supernatural. But it
was not the performance alonn that pleased
the people. At tlieend of the performance
the presentation of gifts was commenced.
Professor Anderson does just what he ad
vertises on his programme eery time."

It is repoi.ed that the C. II. A D. bought
the Vandalia line, and if so. It will be made
mighty interesting to the Pennsylvania

people went in with the C. 11. A I)., and
now the C. H. A D.. by buying the Van
dalia, gives the B. A O. a through line to

and the Vandalia is one of the best i1ts

are growing so rapidly that if no obstacles
are placed in its way there will be no tell
