mittee, that the school buildings used during
the recent epidemic have been thoroughly
cleansed, ventilated and fumigated, and are
now perfectly safe for the reception of pupils.
In accordance with the above medical opinion

Seven members of the school board are
1 twyers, and good cnes at that, but the non
legal members of the board have some ideas
as to great constitutional and charter ques
tions which they are loath, from modesty, to
advance. Gentlemen, law is only the perfec
tion of reason, and the most seasible non
leg il man often announces more common
law tht:n the schooled lawyer. Don't be
backward in coming forward.

An indignnnt correspondent writrs as

morning there ia a push and a scramble to

fools than men.and elbow themselves through
the crowd up to tbe box like they were ex
pecting a letter containing ten thousand dol

can do will be to have a railing put around
thoKP hexes, so gentlemen can get their let
ten without being insulted by tbe rough
crowd that LUwiirs ground the postofhee
every Sunday morning.
At six o'clock yesterday morning a fire
broke out under the fire-range of Frank Stur

Sid Cook gets off a pretty good thing on
his nurses while be had the yellow-fever:
Dr. Sim had visited him just about his critic
al period, and found him low. He ordered
the nurses to give Sid a toddy mixed with
glycerine and a little niter. When the doc
tor left, Joe, the Dutch nurse, said to Dale,
the other nurse: "Veil, I vont giv Sid the
toddy." "Why?" said Dale. "Mein Got
iu himmel, he'il be blown up, the house and
all; dunder and blitzB, don't you know vat
compound dot is? Yhy, dot is what they
used 8t Hell Gate to blow up the rocks."
"H 1 yon say!" said Dale. "Vby, yes,"
said the Dutchman; "it's nitro glycerine,
vhat's used for blasting." "Wbv, it will
blow up the town," said Dale. "We von't
give it," slid Joe. "No," said Dale. Sid
lost his toddies, but was saved from being
blown up.
Oxford f Miss.) Falcon : " Memphis,
from its nearness and accessibility, is the
natural trading point for north Mississippi
Her water and railroad facilities bring
freights almost down to nominal figures.
which enable business men of that place to
successfully compete in prices with any ot her
sister cities who depend upon southern traae.
Her vitality and recuperative powers evinced
since the late terrible plague is a wonderful
proof of the 'never say die' pluck and enter
prise of her citizens and business men, and
for this, if for no other reason, she deserves
the support and patronage of all sections
within easy reaeh. Mississippi having no
city of her own, Memphis is as nearly identi
fied with her as with Tennessee, and now
when she is jost out of an epidemic that cost
hundreds of lives and thousands of dollars,
that paralyzed her business interests in every
channel and lost her months of legitimate
trade; now when she ia coming from out the
valley of the shadow of death, struggling to
regain her old position, let Mississippi, and
esDeciallv north Mississippi, lend her a help
ing hand, give her the trade that legitimately
belongs to her, and render her the support
and patronage that she so much stands in
need of and 60 richly deserves."
Stack Lee, tbe popular commander of
the Geo. W. Cheek, has much to do to keep
his friends that is everybody straight.
Last trip a certain one of the editorial profes
sion was a passenger, and during the trip
(through the city) got unusually full. Stack
found him and tock him aboard to
carry him home. During the voyage down
the river a man strlicted with delirium tre
mens, jumped overboard, and was barely res
cued irom a watery grave. Stick, wishing
to impress his new paper friend with the
evil resuits of looking on the wine when it is

Memphis. December V. 187K. (
To tbe Honorable Boaid of Kducatlon:
Gentlemen Dr. Heber Jones, the health
officer of the city, having satisfied himseif by
careful personal inspection of the various
school buddings that they were in a saie
condition for the reception of pupils, and
having addressed to your honorable body bis
official certificate to that effect (tbe original
ot which will doubtless be laid before you by
the committee on school buildings), the city
schools were opened to-day in pursuance of a
resolution passed by the board November
27, 1873. I have visited all the schools, and
submit the following items of information:

in attendance 429, leaviog out the Clay street
building. The severity of the weather Wing
taken into consideration, along with other
reasons, this is a very fair attendance for the
opening day, as compared with former years.
Of one fact, however, I am convinced, and
can assure the board, viz: That the zeal aud
earnestness everywhere exhibited by both
teachers and pupils promise a rich harvei
during the present session, notwithstanding
the untoward circumstances which prevented
the opening in October as contemplated.
and which, following the premature closing
of the schools for the previous scholastic
year, have tended to diiarrango, for a time.

James T. Leatb. late sue.
Ai-hatendent, in re-
gard to the necessity for abbrevi.

course in arithmetic, be adopted, and that
such abbreviation be made permanent as to
that study. ,
Third l'hat the same committee to wluca
this matter is referred, be empowered to tem-
tioranli? revisp t.h entire course of study in
the graded schools to meet the exigencies of
the present scholastic year; and
Fourth That examinations in the graded
schools be deferred until the close ot the year.
As to
the high school,
I would make the same suggestions concern
ing examinations. I am in receipt of
a letter from Dr. C. J. Hunter, late pro
feasor of mathematics in the high school
resigning his position, and recommend that
no successor be elected to fill the vacancy,
I am of the opinion, from mtormatiou de
rived from an interview with Prof. T. C. An
derson and Mrs. E. J. Crockett, of the high
school, that the institution can be conducted
as efficiently a s heretofore with the present
corps ot teachers; provided, some changes
are made in the curriculum arid mode of dis
cipline. It would probably be best to leave
the matter to the judgment of the superin
tendent or principal, inasmuch as changes
must necessarily be made with reference to
immediate surroundings. In regard to
changes in the curriculum, I have to suggest
1. A temporary version of tha coarse with a
view to the brevity of the coming ne.sioa
the matter to be referred to a special com
mittee of three. 2. The discontinuance of
tbe study of botany and geology. 3. The
substitution of a short course in chemistiy
say oteele s tor the text-books now in use
or the abbreviation of the present text book
to the study of such portions as pertain to
the experience of daily life. 4. That Latin be
made an optional study and not to be under
taken by any pupils except those whose
patents or guardians shall promise
that their children or wards
will prosecute the study without
interruption during the year. 5. That
United States history be continued through
out the course, in connection with that of
England, as now provided for. 6. That
the study of English composition and etym
ology be made imperative throughout the
entire course. 7. Finally, I would earnestly
recommend, with a view to make the
course more practical and in order to pre
pare pupils, both male and female, for the
real duties ot lite, and to open up. if possible.
a new field of employment for the latter, that

course, and that the same be prosecuted
under the tuition of a competent person reg
ularly elected by the board, who shall receive
for his services the sum of dollars per
month. iy leaving the present vacancy in
tue nign scnooi unhiied, the board could em
ploy a competent special teacher for this pur
pose and still save a considerable sum month
ly. Some action of the board is necessary to
carry into effect a suggestion of the late
superintendent in reference to an amend
ment of section four of the rules and regula
tions wnicn nxes tne hours ot ttudy, recess,
etc. I think a certificate may justly be award
ed to Airs, boutberland, formerly Miss lmo
gene Latham, in place of one lost or mislaid
inougn tne record aoes not turnish positive
proot ot the lact, yet it may very properly be
inferred that she would not have been in the
employment of the board, and certainly would
not have received a salary, unless she bad
previously received a certificate. Such cm
ployment may be reasonably held as vrima
facie evidence of the existence of a certificate,
ana hence l recommend that Mrs. bouther-
land s petition be granted and a grammar
grade certificate be reissued to her. An ex
amination of applicants for teachers' certifi
cates was held, in accordance with the direc
tion of the president of the board, from
November 25th to November 29th. inclusive.
The results of that examination will be re
ported to the board by the teachers' com
mittee. 1 wish, in connection with that re
port, to call your attention to the small num
ber of those who obtain certificates, aa com
pared with those who fail. This fact is due
to two reasons: First, the scope of the ques
tions given, the design being to cover the
ground required under the rules to sustain
the standard of requirement, and hence the
value cf the certificate when obtained: and.
second, to the general and painful want of
preparation on the part ot applicants. It is
to be hoped that applicants will not
in the future present themselves,
until they have obtained by study
and application, such a knowledge
of the branches required as will afford them
a reasonable assurance of success, and thus
enable them to avoid the humiliation which
inevitably waits upon lack of preparation.
lo supply the large number ot applicants
that usually attend our regular examinations
with materials for preparing examina
tion papers, to advertise such examinations
in the daily papers, and to issue certificates
to successful candidates, puts the board to
an expense for which I can conceive no ade
quate advantage ia received. I would, there
tore, suggest that the board fix a tee which
shall be sufficiently large to cover all the ex
penses referred to above. I feel that the
board will excuse me, if, in conclusion, I
take advantage of this, my first official com
munication addressed to ycur honorable
body, to express my deep appreciation of the
honor conferred upon me in being selected as
the executive officer of the board of educa
tion and superintendent of the city schools.
1 acept the honor, let me add, with the mod
esty befitmg the successor of so good and
great a man as James T. Leatb, and with
the determination to devote whatever of
zeal, energy and ability I am possessed of
to the public educational interest of Mem
phis, and to render whatever aid I can, in
conjunction with the labors of your honorable
body, to the furtherance of every plan which
shall add to the prosperity, perfect the sys
tem and extend the usefulness of the city

A Remarkable story.
Jackson (Tenn.) Tribune and Sun : "Col
onel D. H. King says that, in 1873, during
the yellow-fever epidemic in Memphis, there
were three men who gave it as their per-ocal
experience that they had esctped yellow
fever by the use of Robertson county whisky.
They belonged to a popular club in the city.
and when the epidemic ot 167i brose out
they imparted this information to their asso
ciates. Tbe result was that a number cf
them agreed to remain and rely on Robertson
county whisky as a preventive. All who en
tered into the ag'eement passed through
safely except one, and the colonel says that
his death was accounted for from the fact
that he went out and got drunk on Bmrbon.
The colonel says that Woodward ic Moore,
of Nashville, make tbe purest and best, and
he presumes that it was their celebrated
Silver Spring whisky which saved the Mem
phis olub from annihilation by the epidemic.

firm, about it and he thinks 'Earn' u
