Having visited mot of tho public ichools

rndnnmlfir. mt- urnmlin In v,m t. ..innrl
mv obcrvatlons. "
I am hnppy to state that, with few ex- I
captions, tho schools aro much better than
I cxpictcd to Und them. Theo exceptions
aru in di-trict wheru thcro nro dllllcultlcs
liard to bo overcome. Tho great extent of
territory embraced In some, nnd tho unfor
tunato locality or tho school houses In
others, subject the scholars to great loss of
time, and muko It imposslblo for somo to
attend school in bad weather. Thoso diffi
culties can bo remedied only by setting off
portions of tho old districts and forming
new ones : nnd tho Interest manifested by
parents In somo of thorn justifies tho be
lief tlint tho remedy will soon bo applied.
There nro In somo localities other obstacles
moro dillli'tilt to remove. A want of hnr
mony on thu part of school c Ulcers
and iudill'erenco on the part of par"tits
havc. moro injurious effect upon tho
schools than long di'tance nnd bad
weather, nnd there tire paronts whoso
children would bo greatly benefited by
the application of a law for compulsory
j ntteud'tnee. A largo majority of the poo
I plo of our vu.f would rejoico over tho
! enactment of such a law.
Olio fractional township lot its town
hip school fund many yenri ago, und
has not since had n school, but tho people
there have recently elected able nnd earnest
men to their township nnd district offi
ce, who have purchased fur temporary
hi ij a comfuriitblo house for it summer
school, and have employed a teacher for
tlx months. They intend, to build nnd
equip a good school houso In time for next
winter's school, and nro making nn effort
to recover thoir lost fund. One district
in another township has had no election
for school director for two or threo yea,
nnd no school during that time.
Complaint have been mado to me in some
place that money nei-l and collected
for dictrict purpose, ha not been fully
paid over, nnd that tho pvoplo hnvo paid
tuxe enough to bring them out of debt.
They uru still owins coti'ldcrablo sums of
money, and they aro or course somawhut
ditcouragi-d. All then mutters will be
investigated without unv tuinoeciarv
delay.
