As for me I think -that thc new rules
are one of the biggest set of radical
so-called democratic measures that
have ever been forced on our people.
And in my opinion it means only one
thing, namely to deprive the poor
working man of his right and vote as
a citizen. And why do they want to
do this? Is It merely because there is
a set of men or class -of people, such
ar. adopted and consented to adopt
this set of radical rot that we have on
our hands, ie trying and clamoring to
get control bi our govcxnuie?t? rThey
do not wish to be governed by the ma
jority of our people, and do you"~know
why? Now any set ol people that are
making thc effort that this class is
and in the way they arc, certainly
have not thc good of their country and
their people at heart.
And, my people, we must not let
them get in power. We have been
obliged to make a hard fight for our
existence against this class and yet
our life has called for thc vigor and

Seventy-five years ago today thc
find state normal school in thc Uni

Masr. Thc parlor of a boarding
house was the cradle of this educa

thought that a rchool "to teach
teachers how to teach" was a need
lers expenditure of time and money.
Unable to secure state aid, the pion

Rev. Cyrus Pierce of Nantucket as its
teacher. At the end of the first year
the school, known us thc Lexington
Academy,' had--twenty-five, students

worth so thoroughly that the legisla

Impudently turned his. horses loose in
thc church yard and refused to take
them out again.

Off went Ojo farmer on tba instant
and crashed noisily Into tho village
"The vicar hus jUBt called me a
broken-down old mule " ho bawled
"What am I to do?"
Now the lawyer had once received
a severe 'rehuir from the farmer and
had waited for years for a chance to
repay it. Hera was his opportunity
and he seized it with both hande.

said, coolly. "I can't patch you up.
