To Teachers and Trustees
The next teachers' examina
tion will be held on Friday, Oct.
2. All persons who teach in the
public schools of the state are
required to have certificates. A
diploma is not a certificate. The 1
law allows the county board of -
education to grant certificates to I
graduates of certain colleges
within the state. It does not al
low them to grant certificates to y
graduates of colleges outside the
state. The last legislature took
that power from the state board (
of education. If there are per- t
sons who are graduates of col
leges outside the state they
should stand the examination t
on Oct. 2 if they intend to teach
in the schools of the county.

It has been estimated that
the cost of an extra session of
the legislature will be between
$1,000 and $1,250 a day, includ
ing the salaries of the house
officials, senate officials and a
conservative allowance for print
ing and the engrossing depart

a day would be paid out in sal
aries, but the law does not re
quire members of general as
sembly to accept his salaries.
The running expense per day,
it is though, will amount to at

"Members of the general , as

regular session is fixed by
statute $200 milage at 5 cents

Each member of the general
assembly is entitled to draw foI
his attendance on the extra ses

however, exist at this time due
variouly to deaths, resignations
and other causes.
It is provided, also, that "i1
case of an extra session of the
lesislatrue the assisant clerks re
cieve the same pay as members
of the genreal assembly.
The expenses in the house are
estimated as follows: Four
offeers at $5 per day, $20; three
doorkeepers at $3 per day, $9:
five pages at $2 per day, $10
seven laborers at $2 per day. $14
nine clerks at $5 per day, $45.
For the senate there would be
