We are indebted to Mr. Andrew Han son the obliging lessee of the Hallberg gardens, for au exquisite boquet of ger aniums, which proved as pleasant as an antidote for "blue Monday" as we have ever struck. Such delicate favors are always appreciated at The News office. Messrs.

A son of Robert Jeff, in attempting to board a moving train at the Santa Fe depot yesterday, missed bis bold and fell, coming within an inch of being thrown nnder the car wheels and barely escap ing a horrible death. The News has had frequent occasion to admonish tbe boys of Emporia against this dangerous practice, but wc fear nothing will ever work a reformation in this direction short of the dreadful results which its continuance will surely entail. Mr. Andrew Hanson has leased the well known Hallberg place, adjoining Emporia on the south, and will have entire charge of the nursery and gardens. Mr. Hanson is thoroughly acquainted with the business, having bad twelve years' experience, and was in Mr. Hall-' berg's employ in the years 1971-2 and 3. ne is a pleasant and enterprising gentle man, and we believe will sustain the ex cellent reputation these old established nurseries have iu this portion of tbe state and throughout the southwest and even in Colorado and New Mexico. We are informed by City Clerk Forde that six persons availed themselves of the opportunity offered them to register, by his keeping his office open last Sat urday evening till 9 o'clock- This is rather a meagre evidence of the public's appreciation of Mr. Forde's interest in their behalf, and Indicates the apathy of our voters in regard to this important du ty.

Editors News: On my return from a ten days' trip I find along article from Mr. McMahon in your paper, to which I make the following reply: 1st.

That our business has bjen as good as we could expect ever since we came to Emporia; that it is now larger than it ever w9, and that we expect to increase it right along. 4th. That the discussion is closed, as far as we are concerned, the public having rendered a verdict in our favor by crowd ing us with business. Yours truly, P. OHtKH.lt. President Welch, Of the State IJormal, was complimented by a very good audience Monday even ing, including students, business men and all classes of citizens, who availed themselves of the opportunity afforded them of learuing a great deal in a short time concerning the valuable process of Rapid Calculation, which was the sub ject of the Professor's excellent lecture. The method elucidated is one evolved by President Welch him self, and its great beauty con sists not alone in its thorough utility, but is further commended by the desideratum that it can be so readily im parted and rendered available for the common purposes ot tue accountant, with comparatively little effort. The Professor, by its aid, reads tbe results of ordinary addition as easily as print, and accomplished many other mathematical achievements that were not less interest ing than surprising. President Welch has written a very valuable book setting forth his methods, which takes high rank among the text books of the day, CUUKC1I NOTES. About eighty representatives of the Welsh Congregational church in this city were present at the union Sunday school meeting on Dry creek Sunday, and a very interesting and profitable ces sion is reported Rev. Dr. Cordley', of the Congrega tional church, preached a discourse Sun- day morning on "Character," which has excited a large measure of flattering comment. The Kansas ministry has few preachers who will average up with the Doctor, taking him "one Sunday with another, the year round," and we believe it would be within the bounds of truth to any that he has not inflicted upon his congregation a mediocre effort during his stay in Emporia. The genuine pleasure felt by the M E. congregation ot this city, over the re turn of Rev. Mr. Kirby to this charge for another year, was attested by the im- mense houses which greeted him Sun - day morning and evening. His opening sermons for the conference year were marked with that force and large meas ure of ability which has rendered Mr. Kirby the leading light of the South Kansas conference, and is doing so much to advance the interests of Methodism in Emporia.

News: Education is the corner stone of our government- me intelli gence of the people is the defense of our national liberty. The culture and refine ment of our citizens are ornaments which will shine on the page of history long af. ter its projectors have passed away. There is nothing that the American people need more than thorough public schools. They are the institutions in which our children receive the greater aud most important part of' their education. A liberal education is a gill with in the power of every American par ent to bestow upon bis cliUilren. It is better than gold and more en during than silver; it is beyond the in fluence of dishonesty and the moth and rust have no power over it.- It is a friend who stands firm in adversity and the band of misfortune can not deprive you of its possession. Yea, more, death cannot rob you of it, nor the grave spoil you of it. It is a possession which will develop with eternity. But how little interest is practically manifested in our public schools? Our children are put under the tuition of strangers, whose ac quaintance we never make, and whose school room we never visit, but we are willing to entrust the most sacred as well as the most important part of their education to them. The ' school rooms are ever open to all, especially to parents. In order that no one present need go alone to look after tbe interest of his children we have appointed the last two days of this week, Thursday and Friday, for a public examination, thereby giving to all who can, the op portunity to visit our schools. Tbe primaries and intermediate will be ex amined on Thursday, and the grammar and high school on Friday. Commit tees have been selected for the different rooms and will examine the schools in any way they may deem most advis able and will make a report of the same . which will be published. We hope the patron and friends of our school will set apart these two days and visit the school. There were 887 pupils enrolled in the city schools last month. The pupils and teachers are anxiously waiting for the new building. Mr. Frank McCain with a good force of men is plastering the new building. The first coat ot plaster is nearly on and a part of the second coat. . The grounds are soon to be grad ed and then the "Arbor Day" will be in order. Such a day will be hailed with joy by the school children. Superintendent Carmichakl. Meeting of Colored Votara. A public meeting of the colored citi zens of Emporia was held at the court house on Saturday evening pursuant to the action of a former meeting, called on the 15th of March, for the purpose of considering the expediency of offering colored men for city officers. The meeting was called to order by the secretary, as the chairman (Mr. J. T. Brewington) was absent. Mr. W. S. Huffman was nominated as chairman pro tern, but be declined on the ground that he could be more useful on the floor and suggested Mr. Page, who was unan imously elected. Mr. Page, on taking his seat, declared the house in order for business. After stating the object of the meeting, the minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved, with some correc tions. An enthusiastic debate then ensued and was participated in by Messrs. Lew is, Huffman, D. Tipton, E. Tipton, W. St Clair and others, on the ways and means by which the object of the meet ing could be best accomplished. Tbe debate finally ended harmoniously, all seeing alike and" agreeing upon the most important point. A motion was made by T. J. Knox to proceed directly to offering the names of gentlemen to be placed in nomination. Several gentlemen were named for the position of city councilman. A vote was taken by ballot, and Mr. G. S. Lewis, of the First ward, received the highest number of votes and was declared tbe nominee, and as his character as a gen tleman is unimpeachable and his experi ence in public life heretofore renders him the most suitable man fer the posi tion, the vote was made unanimous. I The names of gentlemen were then I suggested for the position of constable The ballot being taken, Mr. W. S. Huff- man, of the Fourth ward, received the highest number of votes, and was de clared to be the regular nominee.

The of ficers who had been elected at the pre vious meeting were inaugurated, and the society expects to enjoy a period of pros perity under tbe administration of its new president, Mr. E. C. Lyman. The literary exercises of the evening were very entertaining. A short recess was enjoyed by those who were present who occupied the time in laughing and talk ing. We beard a young gent remark that it would be much nic-;r and pleas- anier to promenade during reces. We advise him to try it. The Literati received from the pro ceeds of the Normal lecture course six teen dollars and some cents, which will be expended on the society's ball, so as to make it more pleasant to visitors and members.

Nothing of importance transpired at the Normal to-day. Students seemed serious and talk serious about the pend ing examinations.

The exercises will be gin at 7:30. Price of tickets 10 cents. We insure you 10 cents worth, and, as the proceeds will be expended for a laud able purpose, we hope to see an im mense audience. President Welch's free lecture on Rapid Calculation" was largely attend ed. To those present the lecture needs no commendation, and as our peu is in- apable of giving a fair representation of its merits to those absent, a mere state ment, that they lost a valuable lesson in numbers, must suffice. At the close, its appreciation was made manifest, by a lively book trade for half an hour. As reading the English language is superior to spelling it out, President Welch asks, Why is not reading the sum of a long column of figures as a sentence, superior to the tedious method of combining the figures by sep arate additions? The method takes no more study than to learn the multipli cation table, and after learned, its accu racy und rapidity is simply astounding. The theory can be learned at a single lesson, but the practice is what takes the time. Business men, invest 50 cents book and learn to add. It js the best cure for so much headache I ever saw. Beta. - Of Interest to Edo.ea.tora. Commonwealths State Superntendent Speer Friday sent out a written opinion in reply to an interrogatory addressed to im by county superintendent Franken- burger, of Bourbon county, in regard to whether exchange of work was prohibit ed between Superintendents during pe riods of county institutes. Superintend ent Speer, in his reply, directs attention to section 2 of the act refering thereto, explaining its obvious intent, and ruling that it is a violation of tbe act for Coun ty Superintendents who receive a salary of over six hundred dollars to leave their respective counties to engage in Normal institute work elsewhere. This is an important decision, and should be gen erally known among educators through out the state. Over the County. Amerlcua tiotee. Monday, March 21.
