INVESTIGATION MAY BE
MADE OF ALLEGED FRAUD
It is understood that action bv the
grand jury is likely in the case of tin
agents of the school supply house that
recent I v induced school teachers of
tlui couutv to let go of their hard
cash without so far giving them any
thing in return. I lie tirm is suppos
ed to be a responsible one and doubt
less can be made to at least fulfill the
agreement- with the teacher:., in which
event they will be partially
reimbursed for their outlay. w Superin
tendent Ferguson has taken the mat
ter u i with a view of getting the
books delivered if possible.
The serious part of the affair comes
in the misrepresentation which Super
inteiKlent Ferguson says the agents
used in making the sales. They rep
resented that the plan was that o
the superintendent and1 that by fol
lowing out. the course of reading cov
ering a term of four years other rend
ing now required along same lines
could lie dispensed with. Mr. Fer
guson says they also made it appear
that ho was very anxious) that the
teachers should adopt the course and
in case that they did not see fit to fin
ish it. would sec that some other
teacher took it up when1 they desired
to drop it. paying for the privilege a
proportionate share of the original
cost. Most of the teachers, it is
claimed, bought without reading all
of the paper to which Mr. Ferguson
had affixed his signature, taking the
word of the agent for what it con

Oriental View of VViimnnhnnil,
The oriental idea of the freedom
which American women enjoy does not
ticcord with that of Americans. One
nindoo lady expressed herself as great
ly shocked that American men should
compel their women to go about in
public unprotected, their faces exposed
to the gnze of strangers, and a Hindoo
gentleman with whom we talked thus
expressed himself on the subject of
oriental treatment of women:
"You say that we do not honor our
women. Wliy, let me tell you that all
Hindoo boys, till they are ready to
learn the ways of men. ure taught by
their mothers. YVe are subjeet to our
mothers, anel we know- what you occi
dentals do nt yet seem to realize that
to have good men and good citizens
we must have good mothers. Yon will
hardly find a Hindoo man, whatever
his caste, daring to go against the
counsel of his mother. Can you say as
much for American men?"
Could as much, do our readers think,
be said for American men? There are
no asylums for helpless fathers and
mothers in the orient. So long as there
