UUEKNiJiUER, April 8.
Now as lo this discussion of birds and
grasshoppers, I wish to say that every
farmer wants Home birds, but as a matter
of fact w in ie do yon lind the farmer that
wants grasshoppers? Without birds the
'hoppers and other insects would llour
ish, hut, say, young man, fcuppose your
policy prevailed in this country. What
would lie the result? Every one knows
that birds are very rapid in the multipli
cation table ; they can multiply faster than
any school teacher in Flatwoods. This
being a fact, it wouldn't bo long until the
birdd would be driving our pot lien or
game rooster off their perch, usurping
their roosting places and playing havoc
generally. The fact of the business is,
j ou are a grasshopper man and I am a
bird man. Not a bird man in the sense
you prefer, but whenever I can supply my
table with quail on toast I will certainly
do it, invite my preacher down to eat a
bird dinner, and w hen he wishes to exer
cise his accomplishment as a nimrod, I
will hand him my old trusty i:ur. and tell
him lo "go it, son." My advice to you,
young man, is to clip that growing crop
of juvenile alfafa, take a reef in your in
tellect and talk sense from this on. Oth
erwise, "go away back and sit down."

XO TEACHERS AND FAKKNTS.
I gladly avail myself of the opportunity
to submit the lollowing to the public :
(1) The attendance of the public schools
during the last year was very good the
best, perhaps, that has ever been,
(2) The teachers have given better sat
isfaction than ever before. I contribute
this to splendid attendance of the teach
ers at the associations.
(3) A large per cent, of school houses
have been built and repaired and made
more comfortable for the pupils. I am
glad to say that the old slab bench has al
most been eliminated and better ones re
placed. I hope to see sometime in the
near future our school houses all supplied
with modern desk.
Owing to the rough winter, we were
obliged to hibernate and dream of the
past, but spring has now come and we as
teachers must resume our preparations to
meet the bright-eyed pupils next summer
Let us make the greatest effort for the ad-
vancement of the cause of education this
vear than ever before.
All teachers should be judged by the in
terest thev take in education. All teach
ers should have the interest of the chil
dren at heart and strive to make them
selves more competent to teach them.
Teachers who do not attend the associ
ationsneed not expect any special merit,
a? we need only those who are energetic
