Owinir to the inclement weather Satur day and Sunday the St. Louis browns and Memphis Keds were unable to play the games arranired for those days. They had a irame at Central park yesterday, which resulted in a score of two to nothing for the St. Louis club. The came was interesting and elicited interest. The Browns scored one in the fourth and one in the eighth innings, and made twenty-four base-hits and reached first base by errors only twice. Twenty-four is ritfht clever, and so is nine by the Reds. James Meath was umpire. The time of the game was one hour and twenty minutes. The followin? article relates to woman, whether iustly or unjustly the reader must decide: Her moments of supreme happiness were those when she was most becomingly dressed and was looking her best. Her mo ments of supreme misery have been those when she felt like a dowdy and knew she looked like one. So strong is this feminine instinct for adornment and the enjoyment of 1 .1 t ,1 l . 1 MTi !

From nn Appeal Correspondent Sardis, Miss., April 5. Thinking that a brief account of our provincial tour with the circus would not be uninteresting to those of your readers who regard Cole s circus as a Memphis institution, 1 avail myself ol a tew moments leisure to let you know ot the suc cess which has greeted us everywhere. At Hernando our tent was filled to overflowing in the afternoon, and at night a good attend ance; but at Sardis the people came in such crowds as to fill every available space in the large tents. Our experience is, that the peo ple along the road are not only extremely ap preciative but seem to be as fine, intelligent and prosperous a class as one hnds anywhere. W e cannot wonder, howeyer, at the amount of business which greets us at every place we go, knowing that the Appeal is read in almost every household in the State, and that its recommendations ot Mr. Cole and Ins show are not questioned by its readers. But 1 forgot to tell you, we found a new baby- monkey in the "happy family " cage, and on approaching it the mother looked at us as much as to say, isend word ot tins miDOrt- ant transaction to the Appeal." 1 will write more anon, but the overture has commenced, And soon In the circle of sawdust The clown will be telling his Jokes, And people will laugh and grow merry At each bit of fun that he pokes; They'll homeward return, and to morrow They'll find that by dawning of day. We have " folded our tents, like the Arabs, And silently stolen away." GULICK. ThA board of education met last night, Mr. Trezevant tresidinir. The minutes of the last meeting were read and adopted. SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT. Superintendent J. T. Leath made the fol lowing report to the board: The report from all the schools of the city for March exhibited the same average num ber of pupils belonging to the white schools as in Febrnarv. to-wit, 2201. The colored schools have gained 72 in Maruh, having now an enrolment of 926 pupils. 1 am grati fied that your honorable member from the eighth ward called your attention, in Ids re port of last month, to the condition ot the high "school under your charge. His report fully justifies the necessity of appointing principal for the school, which was done in October last, tor it a faulty system ot classi fication exists now, after the material relief which has been afforded by the assistance and aid ot Mr. Anderson as principal ot the high school, where only three teachers were m charge of the extensive curriculum and mul tiplicity of classics, you ought to know it. If the one hundred and twenty pupils of the high school were all of one sex it would be extremely easy to classify and teach them, but mixed as they are, it hits proved to be somewhat ot a herculean task to accomplish. Since Mr. Anderson s appointment as princi pal every effort has been made by the teach ers and myself to lessen the number of classes, and principally the classification. Some changes were expected to be made to-day, which, it is hoped, will bring good results. If the board would authorize, or public opinion tolerate, the co-education ot sexes. so far as to allow the girls and boys to recite together in the same studies and classes, it would materially lessen the labors of the high school. This system of co-education would not require the sexes to occupy the same rooms, but only to meet in the recita tion room and recite the same studies together. This system is practiced in some ot tue higher institutions ot learn ing elsewhere, and, as it is said, with marked success. We have ventured to make a small experiment in the way of co-education, by onnging together ine sexes in tne stuay oi Latin, and the system seems to work well. It is gratifying that the honorable member of ine eigtitn wara louna so mucn to commend in the diligence and prohciency ot the several teachers ot the high school; in the prohcien cy of the pupils in their studies as well as in their genera! good order and deportment. His praise in these respects is eminently de served. According to section seventy-nine of the rules and regulations ot the board, which says that "the annual vacation shall be from the second f riday in June to the nrst Monday i i. . ii i v i . in ucuu;uiuci, liiw uicseiu nu tailtu HUI1U1UM" tic year should close on the eighth ot June. ihe report was received, and the recom mendation that the session close on June Sth was adopted. ihe auditing committee reported the pay oil for March, and found the same to be f 1792 82. The pay-roll as reported was allowed. Accounts amounting to $1153 were ilso allowed. REPORT OP TIIE FINANCE COMMITTEE. The finance committee made the following report: i our committee on hnance report pay-roll tor March 4! 2, and all other indebted ness presented up to this date $1053, paid or provided for, leaving a balance on hand of $4:59 30. We are much gratified to be able to make this report, as we expected at our last meeting to have a deficiency of at least $1500 on this settlement. This is without using the $18110 due from interest on the State school fund, which we hope will be paid us by our next meeting If so, with ordinary energy in collecting tne city taxes, wm, we nope, leave bht a small deficiency on our next month's expenses. All of which is respect fully submitted. .i. n. godwin, cnairman x i nance committee. The report was adopted. The report of the building committee, con senting to let the school board room be used tor a horary by the Odd- ellows, was adopted. A communication rrom the Centennial commissioners awarding a medal and diploma to pupils of the Memphis city schools for samples of map drawing, was read. Ihe reports ot various school visitors were made and received. The walls of the Court street school building and the yard, were re ported to be in a deplorable condition. Ihe treasurer s report showed the deposits to be if 2U4 40: balance on banc!, 2SJ4 (js. Colonel Butler Anderson moved that the committee on text-books report upon the pro priety of keeping "Clarke's grammar" in the schools, and also to take all other neces sary action relative to text-books. The reso lution was adopted. Ihe committee on school grounds was au thorized to ascertain what price could be ob tained for the Main street property owned by the board, and ascertain whetuerthe proceeds of such sale can be devoted to the erection of a school in Chelsea, either for white or black children.

Anybody can make a shirt; at least almost every woman thinks she can, even though the result ot her attempts at ht be ot the style of the traditional "shirt on a bean pole. liut it has been reserved tor the in genious and inventive Jveep to hit on the head the happy idea of partly making a shirt. and selling the incomplete article tor some body else to hnish. 1 o make a shut so that it shall ht nicely and look well is not so easy an achievement as it seems. The Keep manufacturing com' pany does the work of fitting, and of making the principal parts of the garment, leaving for our wives and mothers only the sewing of a few simple seams. To buy and finish a l shirt in this way actually costs less than to purchase the material and make the whole thing. Their immense factory at 165 and 167 .Mercer street uses up every day over six thousand yards of Wamsutta muslin. About four hundred young women are kept con stantly busy. A visit to the factory will ex plain the enigma which long bothered us, namely, how the Keeps can keep on making their "partly made" at such prices as to make a living out of it, while they are furnishing their goods at prices so low as to astound ev erybody. But they do not pretend to throw their goods away at less than cost. They are making money and are not ashamed ot it. tor good snirts, either "partly made or complete, go to Keep's, and enjoy complete satisfaction. You can save money to "hnv mules" or J. . &. W. A.

Piles, fis tula, 6TICTL RE8, ULCERS, TUMORS, and all diseases peculiar to females treated success fully. Not one in ten are confined to their beds, tiles cured by a simple application. Schenck's Standard Bemc dies. The standard remedies for all diseases of the lungs are Schenck s pulmonic syrup, Schenck s seaweed tonic, and Schenck's man drake pills, and it taken before the lunirs are destroyed, a speedy cure is effected. lo these three medicines JJr. Schenck. ot Philadelphia, owes his un rivaled success in the treatment of pulmonary diseases. Ihe pulmonic syrup ripens the morbid matter in the lungs; nature throws it off by an easy expectoration, for when the ohletmi or matter is ripe a slight cough will throw it off, the patient has rest, and the lungs begin to heal. To enable the pulmomc syrup to do this. Schenck's mandrake pills and Schenck's sea weed tonic must be freely used to cleanse the stomach and liver. Schenck's mandrake pills act on the liver, removing all obstruc tions, relax the gall bladder, the bile starts freely, and the liver is soon relieved. Schenck s seaweed tonic is a gentle stimu lant and alterative; the alkalie of which it is composed mixes with the food and prevents souring. It assists the digestion by toning up the stomach to a healthy condition, so that the food and the pulmonic syrup will make good blood; then the lungs heal, and the patient will surely get well if care is taken to prevent fresh cold. All who wish to consult Dr. Schenck. either personally or by letter, can do so at his prin cipal otlice, corner of Sixth and Arch streets, Philadelphia, every Monday. Schenck s medicines are sold by all drug gists throughout the country. Von can buy choice mules or any kind of a horse at reasonable rates, guaran teed, of J. B. A W". A. FAIKEH, Culpa street.
