XALUKiii, N. C Dec. 10. The biennial
report ol'S.M. Fiiifjer, stntc uicrintend.
ent of public instruction is tin Hdmirnblc
document. Miijor I'inpcr. in it. very
lirst pnriiKrnph any :
"1 desire to any, with us much empha
sis ns Kissille, thnt out schools, save in
a few of the cities, arc nut satisfactory
to niiy .ehisH of our citizens. As every
where, we have in North Carolina people
who either want no public schools or if
any only n sort of charily schools for the
poor. For such people we have ulrendy
too much tax for public schools. We
have also many people, and the number
is rapidly increasing, who believe in lib
eral education for all the people for the
people's benefit and for the safety of
the state. To sncli people, many of
whom arc entirely dependent upon
the public schools for the educa
tion of their children, the schools
are unaatiafuctory because of the small
amount ol money applied and the conse
quent shortness ol annual terms and
want of proper qualifications on the
part of many teachers. It is simply idle
to expect satisfactory schools with our
averagr annual terms of sixty (lavs, and
with an exiendittirc of money amount
ing to 44 cents on enchof the federal pop
ulation (each man, woman and child)
and only $1.22 on each of the school pop
ulation, from 6 to 21 years of nje."
Major Pinner tleclarrsthat the amount
of money must lie doubled betore we can
expect satisfactory schools, and when
that shall have been done toe terms will
be no longer than in some of southern
states. The average amount expended
per capita in North Carolina is, as above
stated, 44 cents, while the average in the
fitteen southern states is OH cents, and in
the United States 2.0S. The school fund
n this state is M4 cents on the $100
property valuation. There is an imme
diate neccssitity, the superintendent as
serts, lor an increase ol the school fund :
the practicable way being by increase of
me tax levy oy me legislature a. iu
the authority to do this he declares
there is no question, as the
counties can not under a decision
of the supreme court, supplement
the state tax levy. The legislature can,
however, require the county commis
sioners to levy school taxes before they
provide for other county matters. The
code should be so amended that any
county, township, city or town shall be
allowed to. vote upon the question of tax
ing its iieople, keeping up the equation
between the property tax and poll tax,
to such an extent as is deemed desirable.
Normal schools or training schools for
teachers must also be provided. More
active work by county siqierintendents
of public instruction must also be had in
many counties. In ninny counties the
superintendents do not visit the schools.
Dunns the venr ending June 30, 1890,
the enrollment of white children was 65
ner cent, ol the school census, and theav-
ernge attendance 3i per cent; that of the
colored beinif 54 and 32 respectively.
The total enrollment was tfO.o.M out ol
586,0H8 children. In seventy-two coun
ties, in private schools, there were en
rolled 24,101 white and 4,413 colored

How long it has been since we met! But

Yes, Dr. Todhunter; I can't realise

INGRATE WITH HORNS.
r was traveling among the troon tains
of east Tennneaee, and ons day about
noon was casting about for a place where
I might get something to eat when my
eye was attracted by a number of hones
that were tied near rninoos old log
Cnriosity and a hope that I might be
on the trail of something to eat drew me
to the hruise. Upon entering the door
way I found a justice of the peace hold
ing court. It wits a criminal case, and I
discovered the prisoner to be a long, lank
fellow, with a bony face and a complex
ion that proclaimed the clay eater. I
fancied that having killed some one he
was now on trial to determine whether
or not he should be sent before the
grand jury as a sort of sarcastic prelim
inary to being hanged, and had begun
to pity his probable wife and presuma
ble children when the judge said:
"This here eonrt, bein' sorter tired,
will now tako a recess fur hnlfer hour.

parts, pass a chew of it right op to the
The prisoner took ont a twist of to
bacco and handed it to the judge, where
upon the jurist remarked: "This court
thanks yon, Jnems, but at the same time
reminds yon that the law of this great
land ain't to be bought for a mess of pot

"Sorter wsllerin' with the crab grass
an' rasslin' with the tag weed. I woulder
had it all right, but this here trouble
come on me. When a man is bowed
down in the spent he ain't thinkin' of
craps. He is a-thinkin' of the shame
that mout fall on him an' take all the
color onten his repurtation."
"Yes, that's a fact, Jeems."
What is all this about?" I asked,
turning to a long haired fellow that sat
near where I stood,
"Wall," be answered, leaning over and
turning loose a squirt of tobacco extract
that might have singed a cat, "Jeems
Timberly he shot sheep an I reckon
he's in fur It"
"They dont intend to hang him, do
"No, wns-n that They'll hit him
abont fifty lashes with a hickory an'
then make him work a country road
some day when thar's a boss show in the
At this juncture the judge pounded on
the table. "Come to order now. The
court is about to put on the solemn gyar
ment of the law of this here free an'
mighty land, an' if any man so fur fur
gits himself as to interrupt tho proceed
in's he'll fall nnder the witherin' dis
pleasure of yonrn truly. Now, let's git
at this business, fur this eonrt has other
affairs on hand. This court must go
some time this evenin' an' reprimand a
man that pixened his dog. Jeems, as I
said at the outset of this trial, I never
was more shocked in my life. Fur many
years we have know'd you to be reason
ably honest with generally a putty good
dab of meat in yo' smoke bouse, an' we
kain't see why you should have killed
the Widder Dalton's sheep."
"Yes," spoke np the widow, who for
the first timo I noticed was present, sit
ting in a corner, "an' a finer m"t never
blew bis breath on a bunch of h-h lyrile.
But here comes Jeems an' shoots him,
an' that too, when he's got mora meat
than 1 have, an' he knows that I've got
three son-in-laws to feed."
"Jedge," said Jeems, "if yon will jest
let me have a mimt I will fling a good
deal of light on this bore subject I
dont deny a killin' of the sheep"
"Well, then, Jeems, yon neenter say
no more. You've stated the very tact
that we air tryin' to git at, an' thar aint
no use in foolin' along here no longer.
The court lows that it will barter sen
tence you, Jeems."
"Not without givin' ma a haaria'. I
"I dont sea what good a hearhV will

Wall, jest listen to my talk, an' then
mebby yon'U see. I don't want to take
np yo' time, so that yon kain't meet the
feller that planned yo' dog, but I do in

"Wall, then, go ahead, but cut her
"Jeems" got np, reached back his long
hair and thus addreased the assembly:
"One cold winter night when the snow
comedown faster than yon ever aeen
chaff come oaten a wheat fan, I heard a
blratin' noise, an' goin' to the door I
thonght the sound come from the valley
not fur from my house. I told my wife
that I had to go down in the valley, be
cause I heard a lamb callin' for help,
and let me say right here that I may be
bad in a good many things, but no lamb
ever called to ma In Tain. I thought of
Simon Poter that was told to feed the
Lord's sheep thought of it as I stood
thar in tlie door with the snow a-drivin'
past me into the bouse. My wife said
that I better not go out in sich a night
'specially a I wa'nt feelin' ery well;
but I 'lowed that 1 couldn't sleep with
the pitiful cry of that lamb a-ringin' la
my cars: so I took my lantern an' went
down into the valley. The snow was
wbirlin' so fast that 1 could hardly see
whar 1 was golu', but at last eoraln'
nearer an' nearer to the bleatin' I found
a little lamb with his headstickin' ont of
"I took him ent; his tega were froaen
stiff as sticks. I took him to the boos
an' wanned him by the fire, got bottle
of milk and fljted It so be could suck. I
built np a good fir so he wouldn't get
cold dnrlir the night, an' erery time he
yonld bleat I would git up an' fix hi
bottle. The weather staid cold for a
long time, an' once when the old cow got
ont of tbe lot nnd wandered off an' didnt
come np in time to give milk for th
lamb I searched for heron the mountain
side an' way down In the valley. It was
late when I got back home an' long be
fore l reached the house I heard the
lamb a-bleattn'. He seemed to be pow
erful glnd when 1 came In with the milk,
an' the thought I read in his eyes wasi
'I nevor will forgit you.' Wal, to make
a long story short, 1 brought np that
lamb till he was as fine a sheep as yon
ever saw, an' in every look ont of bis
eyes be said that he never would forgit
me. We called him Bob an' he "peered
to like the name,
One day tbe next fall Nat Barsohet,
that I owed $9, corns over to my boos
so lowed that he must have tbe money,
I didn't have It an' told htm so. Jnst
then Bob, he come up. Til take this
sheep,' says Nat ' he done it In spite
of all my beggin' an' pTomliin' that I
would pay him aa soon as 1 could get the
money. Last spring 1 heard that Nat
bad sold Bob to the Wkldar Daltoa. be
much for the first part, an' now for the
second: A day or two ago I was goin'
through the woods, carryin' a bag of
corn on my back, an' all at once ker
bhip! something took me an' almost
knocked me lifeless,
"A soon as I could git np 1 looked
"round, an' thar, not more than ten font
away, stood Bob, a-shakin' of his head.
'Uraciuus alive! Bob,' sued 1, 'don't yon
know me? He backed a little, an' jest
as I exported to see the look that said he
was never goin' to forgit me he shot at
me an' gave me a biff that sent me
sprswlin' on the ground. I think he hit
me three times before 1 could git np, an'
then be followed me to the fence, a
churmV me every jump of the way an'
tickled! Wy, 1 never saw a mm enjoy
himself so in my life. Well, when I got
home I sot down an' thought a long time
about the ingratitude of this life, an'
then I thought I would teach that rascal
a lesson; so I got my gun and went back
down into the woods. I held the gun
behind me an' poked about. Putty soon
I saw Bob, an' he saw me almut the same
time. Here be come! 1 didn't say a
word. He was so tickled that he thought
he'd stop an' laugh a little before hiffln'
me, an' he stopped an' snorted with de
light, an' jest then I nps with my gun.
"I never saw such a surprised sheep.
When he saw that 1 was fixed for him
he tried to look lovin', but I let him have
it right betweon the eyes. That's my
statement, jedge, an' it show that 1
wa'nt out after meat hut revenge, fur 1
didn't even skin the rascal; an' now, if
yon want to whip me an' make me work
on the county road, all right''
"Jeems," said the judge, "any court
that could have the heart to convict
yououghterbn hung. Widder Dalton,
what have you did with that sheep's
"I've got it at home."
"Wall, you go borne an' roast a hin'

Brooklyn Libra rlM.
In the parlors of the Hamilton club, in
Brooklyn, the other evening a discuasion
arose about the private libraries in that
city. One gentleman in tbe party mad
"I maintain that some of the largest
private libraries in the country can be
fonnd in Brooklyn. In the first place,
there is Gordon L, Ford's collection,
which mounts up to 1S0.0OU volume, and
is particularly noticeable for the large
number of books tbat it contains having
reference to American history and to
political science. Charles U West has a
splendid miscellaneous library of at least
l.i.OOO books, James A. H. Bell hsa more
than 10.000 volntnes In his collection,
and 8. L. Elliott has an equal number,
a majority of the latter being publica
tions on American topics. Mind you,
iu giving these estimates, I refer to
books, not to pamphlets.
Small libraries, runuing from three to
fonr thousand books, are owned by
Thomas U. Shearman, the Rev. John
W, Chad wick, Laurence Kehoe, Mayor
Chapin, Eugene O. Blackford, Daniel
T. Tread well. R. R. Bowker and Gabriel
Harrison. The collections of the last
named gentlemen, in many instances,
are of books on particular subjects. Mr.
Kehoe. for inatanne, collects works hav
ing special reference to Catholicism, and
Mayor Chapin s bobby is treatises about
the earlier history of the country. New

Ootng uptown on a horse car one
stormy night I saw a man who wore a

combination of circumstances which, as
everybody knows, is quite unpleasant
The man seemed truly alive to the situa
tion, and hung on the step of the car as
he approached bis street having a grim
expression upon his face which fully in
dicated thnt he was about to adopt des
perate measure. When his ronier was
reached he alighted, took off his list,
turned it upside down and ran like a
wild steer. He was baldheaded, and
looking down tbe street you could see in
the twilight tbe bare head bobbing up
and down as the rain pattered on its de
vastated crest "He thinks more of his
hat than be does of his health." re
