The Bolivar Bulletin.
Hugh Williams, Editor.
FRIDAY, MCII. C, 1903.
. The legislature reconvenes
Monday. About 35 day8 of
the session remain.
The St. Louis Globe-Democrat
(republican) is of the
opinion that the democratic
paity has about run out of
material for presidential can
didates when it considers
Cleveland as a possibility.
The Globe hopes that democ
racy will put up some one
who will at least make the
campaign interesting, and
says the outlook for this
with Cleveland would be
dark. The naked truth
about the matter is that the
Globe fears the name of
Cleveland and trembles for its
party when it is mentioned;
but it need have no fears
along that line, for Mr.
Cleveland has said that he
would not be a candidate, and
those who know anything of
the man know that he means
what he says. There are
others, however, and at the
proper time a candidate will
be chosen who will interest
the gang the Globe gallops
A Teacher's Appeal.
Editor Bulletin: Please allow
me space in your columns for an ap
peal in behalf of the children of
Fathers and mothers, let us talk
sense for five minutes. I am a
school teacher. You intrust to me
your dearest belongings, and you
ask that I shall make them noble
men and women, no matter what ig
nobls or bad traits you or your
ancestors have put into them. I
serve as a father to your boys and
girls, fifty or sixty at a time. I
have heard your wife declare that
one nearly drives her crazy, but I
have fifty all at once and long hours
at a stretch. Day after day, year
after year, I take these fifty and
successive fifties and try to hold
before them, unworthy as I may be,
the praise and glory of a manly life,
a clean, honest and generous life. I
have washed their dear, dirty little
hands, .bound up their cuts and
scratches, sympathized with their
childish griefs and pacified them in
their little quarrels. 1 have put
my arms tenderly about the little
ones and dried their tears and sent
them away in smiles to play again.
Thus living and laboring with your
happy little ones I have learned to
love them all but as well as you
yourself do. Now, I want to reason
with you a few minutes.
You will admit that your children
are by far the dearest treasures you
have on earth. In fact you would
not take all the wealth of the world
for that least dirty-faced boy or
girl who comes in from play and
lisps, "Mamma, I waut dink wather."
You have a great desire deep down
in your heart that comes to you
sometimes when you are alone, or
when you have snugly wrapped the
little fellow in bed for the night,
that he will be a great and noble
man some day. Perhaps in your
waking dreams you see him filling
exactly the place your loving heart
yearns for him to fill.
Yes, every father and mother must
confess that this is true. When
you plan for a crop on the farm you
purchase the best implements,
choose the best seed and prepare the
soil and plant the seed with great
care. You toil diligently and
carefully with growing plants and
are rewarded according to your care, j
But what about the care and culti
vation of that child-plant which is
nearer and dearer to you than all
else? Have you taken the care and
given the labor in its cultivation as
vou would in a crop; or is it grow
ing up in the weeds and thorns of
ignorance and sin? Did you pay as
much last year for the moral and in
tellectual cultivation of your child
as you did for tobacco or some other
useless cratincalion or liabit or
pleasure? Does your inner heart or
conscience tell you plainly that you
have done all your duty toward
making a great man or woman of
your son or daughter? The great
est inheritance any man ever left
his son or daughter was a thorough
moral and intellectual education
stored away in the heart and mind
where "moth doth not corrupt nor
thieves break through and steal."
Does any one of you think Wash
ington's mother ever regretted one
particle of expense or pains-taking
care she bestowed upon him? No,
Washington, himself said: "All
that I am I owe to my mother." She
left a priceless heritage to the
heart of every loyal American.
Fathers, mothers, let me exhort you
to awaken to the infinite responsi-i
bility God has given-you in training
your childrep. They must attend a
good 'school regularly for many
years if you intend or expect them
to fill that heart's desire you have for
them to do or be something inure
than ordinary in life. What is the
cost? If you are worth $ 1000 you
pay 3 school tax per year. If you
have three children you pay the
paltry sum of one dollar each for
their schooling per year. It costs
you five times that sum to feed
your dog for one year. Are not
those children whom you love worth
a hundred fold more than this? We
need better a id longer schools, bet
ter qualified teachers and better
school houses. I know you throw
up your hands and cry out in hor
ror every time taxes are mentioned
in your presence. You dear buga
boo, take down your hands aud
count the cost. You say taxes are
eating you up. You honestly do
not mean what you ay. You live
on from year to year and spend
absolutely foolishly and uselessly
more than your taxes. Be honest
with yourself. Ask yourself if
you can remember at any time the
past year any thing you have done
or said or paid toward the better
ment of the school in your com
munity. Did you do all that duty
and your bright happy children de
mand? Don't you think you could
pay ten cents more on every hun
dred dollars you are worth as a
school tax and go without a few
cigars or a plug of tobacco? I
have said all this in love, not re
buke. Be a man worthy of your
children and ask your neighbor to
help you in working for better
schools. Ernest McDaniel.

Those of the readers of this paper
who live in timber countries and
burn wood for fuel and for other
purposes should know that wood
ashes contain fertilizing material of
great value. And it is in those very
localities where this fertilization is
most needed. One bushel of ashes,
it is computed, represents two tons
and a half of body wood. This
wood has been taken from the land
and nothing given back to repay it
for what it has been robbed of. In
all the elements necessary for plant
life ashes are rich in everything but
nitrogeu. Good authorities have
made the following estimate of the
dollars and cents value of this fer
tilizer: One hundred pounds of
ashes contain 1C pounds of potash,
worth 80 cents; 3 pounds of soda,
worth 2 cents; 67 pounds of lime
and magnesia, worth 8 cents, and
5 pounds of phosphoric acid, worth
26 cents. Putting these at the
lowest prices, 100 pounds of wood
ashes are worth $1.16, which is a
considerable, sura to throw away.
