WHY TIE SENATE EAT DIRT.
There seems to have been very littl
contest in the Senate over the con
firmation of James M. Trotter, colored
the nominee to the oflice of recorder of
deeds of the District of Columbia, an'
no utterance of the Senate has been or
is to be expected on the subject. Thei
action of the body, though evilently in
consistent with the principles enunciatdc
in connection with the Matthews case,
upon the heels of which it so closel)
follows, is explained in a variety o!
ways. Trotter came, it is urged, witi
an excellent record as an Ex-Unior
soldier, which, with the Senate, count,
for much. No charge was made against
him, as was the case with Matthews
either of a business or political nature,
and there was nothing to be said in op
position to him, beyond the fact that he
is an alien- to the District. Upon this
point, so strongly urged in the Matthew.
case, it is stated that the Senate has
made a record of its principles, having
pronounced itself emphatically in favoi
of the selection of a District man for i
purely local ofice.

February rains have been so gentle

Our farmers are be gIling to stir the
soil in earnest, and they scon to be in
fin.e spirits to begin fighting the dificult
battles that every farmer has to contend
with, more or less.
I think our agricultural people of this
county can, without a doubt, boast of
the good condition of our stock, for I
don't remember seeing mtlle.s and horses
in a better condition to begin to make a
crop than thef are this spring.
Gardeners are beginning to make good
headway in the vegetable crop. Some
have planted beans, squashes and eucum
bers. One has cabbage plants large
enough to transplant.
Seven car loads of guano have been
shipped to our city, and several more
expecbd to arrive soon.
The small grain crop Is looking re
markably fine, and ithe seasons hit the
oats crop it will be a great blessing to our
county; a bountiful crop was sown this
spring, and will be needed' very much,
as most of our farmers mAde a very poor
crop of corn last year. W. C. S.

don't visit our section of the country.
If one of them comes, it must be by a

For the last public term our school has
numbered seventy and averaged forty.
We have had much pleasant, hard work,
and can see but little fruit of our labor,
yet we are assured "we shall reap if we
faint not." Attending our conventions
strengthens us much, and we cannot see
why our teachers do npt more generally
attend. We think it would be- well for
the State Superintendent to require all
to attend a certain per cent. of the
Since our last meeting I have been
trying the new method of teaching read
ng, and like it real well in some cases,
but it \vill take a while to convince our
people that the first book needed is a
reader. Indeed, in some cases the
reader Is really not bought until the pa
rents think proper.
Our school has been composed of all
iges and sizes from 4 to 25, and we can
safely say no teacher has a more genteel
rowd. Witi the exception of about
1wenty-flve little fellows, a case of dis
Apline is rare. When we read the va
rious school journals with their well de
veloped prInciples and striking -nccom
plishments, we feel -sorely discouraged,
td think It is possible that we are do
Ing almost nothing, even with all our
hard, hard work. We do want and try
to make a foot-print and' is it possible
we are a failure? Not long since a ray

she spoke fluently of diagraming, of
good and bad marks, zero, etc. To tell
the truth we felt rather badly, and as
the girl came from a distance to attend
school, we be1an to think she would not
be much stricken with our old, rustle
way of teaching. We asked for her text
books and found them suel- %s we used.
Dn inquiry she said she - \vell along
in arithmetic and gra ...ar, but what
was our surprise to find that she could
not tell the first from the second person,
Dr a quotient from a product. We know
that the one by whom she had been
taught was a scholar. Of this we could
see evidences, but his scientific plans
had failed to impart that instruction in
the country school room, which would
have been imparted to a school where ats
tendance is regular throughout the year.
Some one may smile at this, but country
teacher, Is it not so?
We usuailly teach from 8 o'clock until
5, giving tie old fashioned hour at 12,
and two short recesses. To learn our
selves and pupils something of parlia
mentary rules we have organized a lit
erary society known as "Cornelian Lit
erary Society. The children enjoy this,
and we think it beneficial. We also
have a library of very good books, which
Is quite an acquisition, and we do not
see why we had not thought of this
sooner. J. A. L.
