(Our School System.
Another reason why.our system has
-prown into disfavor .with our people,
nntl il is a defect .which is chnrgeahh
mainly upon,teachers, is the great
diversity of school books. Loud and
frequent complaints were made oi
Jhis evil when the State Board of Ex
?amuicrs established a series of text
.books to be used in the public schools
dor Jive years. As Boon as our people
.understand the now departure they
Avill take more kindly to the system.
Again, the supervision of School
Commissioners, school trustees and
parents, is very defective, and by
.their neglect to develop tho system
.have learned to prate about the ineffi
ciency und inutility of tho system.
Our people do uot take enough inter
?st in sucti matters. Very few mani
fest uny euro or sympathy for the
teacher in his arduous labors. It has
l>oon urged that our system is a cut
ting from the New England plan and
.tor that reason is not adapted to the
particular circumstances of our peo
ple. We admit tho first but deny the
second clause of the asscition. I!
people would take the interest in
school matters thai is taken by our
New England friends, if our people
would follow the old Puritans in their
visits to the school to learn the man
lier of teaching, to see whether the
school master teaches, whether there
is a God or not, whether the Iliblc is
ihc word of God or a cunningly de
vised fable; to suggest improve
ments ; to encourage the scholars and
to cheer the teacher, nntl to rcwaid
merit with the smiles of approbation,
they would discover that they have
wrongly judged the system. Let our
school officers perfect our plan of op
erations then it will be a ??system" in
.deetl, and will rellcct honor upon its
mother. Don't let ns blame the sys
tem for what we ourselves arc charge
Another objection to the system is
Ahe manner in which the public fund
has been distributed. Outside of the
enormous amounts annually appro
priated by the Radicals when in pow
or, and which amounts it seems we
arc compelled to pay again, one of
toe most serious diflicultics in the
way of a fair distribution and ceo
nomieal expenditure of the public
school funds, is the present inequali
ty of school districts, and until we
rearrange many of the present dis
trict lines in many localities, we can
jiot secure the best results by any
method of dividing the money. In
.many of these townships there arc
.seven or eight schools with an aver
age daily attendance ol perhaps fif
teen?then we have sonic schools
with an average of fifty or (Ifly-five.
Jn such cases it is highly expedient
to change the lines and then better
results in expending the nionc}- would
.follow. The money that is scattered
.over three or four schools should be
concentrated on one and make that
one iflicieut. More good would re
sult, a larger school would be estab
lished, more cnlhusiam aroused, and
(better teachers could be employed,
and everything would be more advan
Wo might state some minor defects
,in our system, but t4ic.se can and will
be corrected by time, and as soon as
our people get iu harness well. Jn
,tho meantime let the friends of edu
cation ventilate, the subject. Venti
Not This Time.
We have received a paper advising
<us of the early departure of the
.??Woodruff Scientific Floating Col
lege," and advising us to join the ex
.corsion. The managers of the vessel
proposo to employ a faculty of the
best scientists lite land affords, form
regular classes, with daily recitations
and scientific conversations, issue an
illustrated daily newspaper, report
ing the discoveries and researches of
Hie party, anil with this grand "Float
ing College" circumnavigate the
globe. After protracted deliberation
ami much consultation wc find we
^nn't take tho trip this lime. We ob
served that the small sum of 83,000
in advance, wouhl have to be deposit
ed. This small consideration rather
had a bearing on our decision ; and
then considering the low price of cot
ton, and the fact that School Hoards
are continually paring down salaries,
and in view of the fact that we might
contract the cholera in Japan, or ho
eaten b}* sonic Cannibal of the South
Sea Islands, and in view of the un
certainty of life and the certainty of
death?well, we decided we wouldn't
embark just this lime. Think of
school teachers getting 830 or 840 a
month and "boardin' tound" at thaf,
planking down 83,000 cash in the
summer lime! Not much margin
for the "Scientific Education Excur
sion I" Go ahead, Captain, no pas
sengers from these parts!
THE BEST REMEDY

' Diseases of tho

Ay Kit's Cherry
Pectoral Is such a
r o m e d y, and no

It is a scientific com
bination of tho medi

ugHbOiirative virtues of
JaSl'the flnost drugs,
PFf!TARAI. chemically united,
rcvivftnu. to illfJlir0 tho great
est possible efficiency and uniformity of re

invalids' to use it with confidence. It is
tho must reliable remedy for discuses of
tho thront and lungs that BCionce hits pro
duced. It strikes ut tho foundation of alt
pulmonary discuses, affording prompt
nnd certain relief, and is adapted to pa
tients of any ago or cither sex. Uomg

und Catorrh, tlio effects of Aykr'b
Cheery Pectoral aro magical, and multi

Illness by its timely nnd faithful uso. It
should bo kept at hand in every house
hold, for tho protection it affords in sud
den attnclts. In Whooping-cough and
Consumption tlicro is no other remedy
bo efficacious, soothing, nnd helpful.
Tho marvellous euros which Atkr'b
CliKKRY Pectoral has effected all ovor
tho world are u sufficient guaranty thnl it
will continue to produce the best results.
An impartial trial will convince tho most
sceptical of its wonderful curative powers,
as well as of its superiority over nil other
preparations for pulmonary complaints.
Eminent physicians in nil pnrts of tho
country, knowing its composition, recom
