him, leaving on the hoofs and skinning out
the head, which was preserved, the flesh be

-W\e tender thanks to Hon. Cornelius
Hedges for a volume of the report of the
Territorial School Superintendent. It con
tains much valuable information in regard
to Territorial schools. In treating upon the
school statistics of our Terr.tory, the Super
intendent recommends that the school age,
which now extends from tour years to twen
ty-one, be confined within narrower limits.

a health and pleasure resort look more flat

are a number of cripples here now that are
beginning to step lively and will soon lay
their crutches aside, and as soon as the sea
son advances h little more our town will be
literally thronged with these people. They
stop with us, however, but a month or so,
and go away with a new lease of life and
make room for others.
