For many year* I have beeu afilicted with that fearful disease known as Spermatorrhea. or Seminal Weakness, to a fetrfal extent, which wan noon followed by the most alarming nymptom», a* weakness of the back and limb*, pain in the head, dimness of vision, nervousness and genera) de bility. My mind. too. wan affected to suClf un ex tent'as to «erloudjr Impair my memory ; my ideas were confused and spirits depressed. 1 wasaverse to society ; had evil forebodings and self-distrust, and was entirely unfitted for any of the duties of life. From 1853 to the summer of 1963, 1 em ployed the very best medical talent I could And, and spent several hundred dollars, but in no in stance could obiaiu more than temporary relief. I had about concluded there was no relief for tae In this world, but. reading Dr. Doherty's adver tisement, I thought I should call aod s--e him. a* he charged nothing for consultation. I had an in terview with the Doctor at his office in Sacra mento street, and his fee for treatment was so reasonable I determined to try him. though I did no: expect much benefit from hi* treatment. On the fifth of December last I placed myself under his care. In one week I found myself very much improved, and now. after live weeks' treatment.

Hon. A. F. Miti, Suptrintendeni of Publie /». it ruction for lU State of Nmuia : Dcab Sib : Mr statistical reports afford you all the Information (n regard to tho receipts and dis bursements of school moneys In thin county, for what purpose* expended, the amount of cash In the hands of the County Treasurer, the names of the teacheA employed, the number of schools, and tho number of pupils attending tho same, average at tendance, an abstract from tho reporta of the Census School Marshal, School Trustees, Teachers, and •uch general Information as tho School Law require». Perhaps a few words, by way or explanations and suggestion, In this connection, may not be out of jllftCP. N The School Law, approved March 3). ISM, repealed the special school law of November, ΙΚίίΐ. which " * "·«««"·» tmnm «lui u^KaaI Isminnr/l the special achool law or November, it*», wnfch ex empted Storey county from the school law approved November, 1*61. under which the Storey county Board of Education was organized, and worked with great efficiency for nearly three yearn. Thin chance abolished the old Board of Education and brought our schools under the provisions of the new law, which wan poorly adapted to meet the wanU of this small but comparatively thickly populated county. The schools of thin county \rero placed under my supervision on tho lîvth <lay of May, loot past. I found the county, which formerly constated of but one School District, carved up, by 111 ν predecessor— who, by a decision of the Supreme Court, held the office of County Superintendent without legal au* thorlty—Into four School Districts, two of which, from α paucity οΓ population, could not maintain a school for a tlmo sufficient to entitle them to draw the fhnds, distributed by the State Hoard of Kduca· lloti, without resorting to district taxation; though one of these districts embraced the extensive Re duction Works «f the Uould A' Curry Mining Com· pany, nnd seven or eight Quartz Mills—having an amount or taxable property, the school fuud from which, If expended In that district, would liberally support α nourishing school for theentlreyear. Con sidering ho much of the action of my predecessor as Illegal, thai divided the couuty Into four districts, I restored the same to onoSchool District, with a view of making tho schools more efficient, by bringing them under one management, and appointed for School Trustees for Storey School District, Messrs. Louis Kemdcr, D. 0. Adklioa and S. 11. Robinson, three gentlemen well known for their publie spirit, energy or character, business capacity, und devotion to the InU-restand prosperity of popular education. These gentlemen addressed themselves at once to tlie Important work of enlarging, repairing, reuovat Inc. ventilating and furnishing those Mcbool hou0N, which were constructed or fitted temporarly for school purposes In IMS and 18Λ3, with the Idea tlrnt they woul<isoon be dhplacod by more commodious and )H>rmanent Hch<M»| (dUCM. These Improve· monts were attended with considerable expense, but were Indispensably necessary. Their labors havo been arduous. They have already accomplished very much, but much more remains to be accom plished. The result 1», the Board of Education has now eleven school rooms, which are comfortable, neat, spacious, well lighted and well ventilated, and equal to the school demands or the present, and will probably serve a good purpose for a few yearn In the future. Those honses have yard room, which, in this city, are fenced In and covered, in part, by sheds to protect the pupils from rain and sun. The Hoard own all these school houses with the exception or two. Two or these are well constructed, hard rtnlnh· ed buildings. The school furniture consist* of two hundred and ten chairs nnd single mahoguny desks, for the accommodation or the more advauced pupils. The balance or the school rooms lu thn couuty nro tarnished with neat and convenient denks, by whlrh the smallest pupils havo coinrortablc seat*, and by means or which can uso their slates without Incon venience. It Is safe to uûlrtn that there are not on the Pacific coast, San Francisco not excepted, more comfortably furnished rooms tliau those of Storey connlr. The con* or teachers employed will com pare favorably with any In other cities. Underthelr administration tho schools are rapidly rising In pub lic estimation. Though the population or the county is diminishing, the schools have Increased about 3!> percent., and an· rapidly augmenting In numbers. Two new schools have been organized, and 1 am happy to be able to report that our schools aro In a hoaltnv and flourishing condition. The Board of Education employ a singing master, who devotes himself entirely to the work of Instructing the pupils In all the schools In the county. In vocal music. The Influence upon the scholar* has beeu of α softening and subduing character. This enterprise thus far has worked charmingly. l4Î" Λ 1·/-*. H'UM llw.il bv the Honni οι County Commissioner» «I 1J cent» on each $100 of surface taxable property In the coun ty-» tax hardly equal to the wants of thl» depart ment but with economy and no «erluii» drawbacks we «hall probably be «bin to maintain the school» In tho county through the year. SCHOOL Limit!». District School Libraries constitute one of the most efficient auxiliaries to our l'ubllc School* that can be employed. Their Importance, when wisely selected and Judiciously managed. can not be easily orer estimated. There are books admirably adapt ed. both In style and thought, to every grade of mlnd.rloh In Information, moral lessons ami religious Instruction, untainted with sectarian bias. Wher ever these libraries have been successfully estab lished they have awakened and cultivated a spirit for reading, and bave essentially modified the char acterof those district» for good. If the Legislature would oflbr tlicTrusteeH of each School District a premium of llrtv cents for each person, between six and eighteen yearn, on the condition that private donations In cash should double that sum, and to be added thereto, I feel contldent that In les» than one year from the passage of that Act, there would be reading matter for the little folks In every prominent School District In the State. Insuring pleasure and nrotlt to the pupils, and a rich reward, particularly In the future, to the public. One thousand dollars expended In this way by the State, would produce results of great moment. VACCINATION. It Is very Important for the continued prosperity of our Public Schools, especially In towns and cities, that all the pupils should be vaccinated. Experience hasdemonstrated that there arc many parents and guardians, abundantly able to bear the small ex pen»» of vaccination, who prefer their children aliouM remain at home than to conform to the rule* of the Board. To banish children from school on account of parental avarice Is contrary to the genltin of our Public School system ; work» a hardship l»oth to the pupil and the public, and should not be toler ated. In such cases It certainly seems Just that the achool authorities should te Invested with the powei to have such children vaccinated, at the delinquents expense, alter days notice by the Clerk of Hit Board of School Trustee» Tor tho district. There are children of Indigent parents who »houW be vaccinated at the public expense. Ill these casei the countv Hhould bear the bunlcn, m It 1* for the Interest or the county that both children and adult· should be quallfled to successfully resist the loath· some disease of small pox. ΝKOtO. INDIAN AN1> MONGOLIAN CIIILDRKN. Some law more efficient than now exists, should be framed, to secure educational facilities to the chil dren of negroes, I ndlans ami Mongolians. A sever* penalty Is attached to any district that will admll children ofanv of the proscribed races Into the Pub lie School» of this State—denying any School Dlatrlcl even by a unanimous vote of Its cltlieus, the rlghl to admit one of these unfortunate». The Callforulu School Law, of which our* In It* principal features Is a transcript, ha» been. I believe, so far modified to meet the advancing spirit of the age, a* to repeal this penalty. , The report of tho School Census Marshal return! seven negro, thirteen Indian and fifteen Mongolian children In this county, between six and elghteer years of age. The Board or Education have expend ed much, both of time and earnest labor, to organln a Public School for their benotlt ; but there are mu tual pritfudlcee existing of one race against another, almost. If not quite, as strong a* that of the superloi race which bolt» the doors of educational hall· against them all; but thus far, have been unable Κ accompUah their purpose, without Incurring a much greater outlay of money than the occasion. In thelt Judgment, seemed to Justify. From thoorganlrallor of the Territory to the present time the property ol the negro ha* been taxed for the support of Public School». Tho Assessor'* books, for IMS, show that the taxable property of the colored penploof Virginia City, for that year, nmounted to the sum of $s2,ni«>. Upon this amount α school tax of two-llflhs of on· Ç-rcent. was paid Into tho County School Fund, Ills la gross outrage upon α helplta* clan»—out self-respect, If not our sen«e of Justice, should coun sel u* to terminale or modify this system or wrong. IMPORTANCE or EDUCATION. The genius of our Institutions rest» upon the pop. ular will. The great highway of the multitude cau be Illumined only by a system of popular education. The Public School system, α» now understood— which holds tho State responsible to flirnlsh educa tional facilities to all tho children of the State. Irre spective of condition or clasn—la emphatically an American system. It la the hope, and should be the pride, of our country. If the State Is morally bound to altbrd these facilities for the children, then certainly the children are under obligation to the Stale to avail themselves of these Invaluable facili ties. RlghU and duties are co relative. The public cannot atford to allow any class to remain In Igno rance of letters. Ignorance l* the natural eiiemy to society. It generates and carrloa with It an un healthy and contagious atmosphere, vastly more lu Jurloun to society, and more to be dreaded than those loathsome and infectious diseases, which are so strongly guarded against, by all government*, by a perfect system of most stringent sanitary regn The School Department I» the most Important In It· conservative Influence of any branch of the State Government—not In cure, but in prevention. The power of the State for all the pnrpose of good aug ments with the growing Intelligence of the people composing It. In the train of Ignorance follow dis ease, poverty and crime. The records of ourcrlmlnal Courts testtiy against Ignorance with an eloouence and lowlo that should not paaa unheeded. Wisdom, the fruit of education, brlug* security andpeace. The schoolmaster conserves—Ignorance destroys. It la vastly more economical for the State to main tain schools and schoolmasters than criminal Court» and criminal officer»-to construct School, Acadeiny and L'nlTersltv buildings, than prisons, penitentia ries and gibbets. As the morning dew disappears before the warn» and genial rays of the «««ending sun. so recedes crime with It* necessary appliances In tnoae communities vitalized with a comprehen sive education, softened l>y moral and religious In fluence». The recent rebellion—the greatest war ol the centurie»—that peopled nearly a million of pre mature graves, and consumed the earnings of the present and past generation*, and mortgaged the labor of generations unborn—would probably not have occurred hail the worth and Importance of the schoolmaster been better understood and apprecia ted, and hi» presence and Influence been Invoked In every part of cur federal Union. Uow forcibly, lu this connection, Is Illustrated the truth of the pro verb, that "Prevention Is better than cure." These great truths should Inspire us to cherish our Public C7V llUvtl M lira mo ·Μ1» ui III· CHAW, «UII UUI Leclilature ibould give Joyfully for their eupport. - «OHOOL ATTENDANCE. With the great fact «taring uh In the face, that nine-tenth· of the preaent generation of children In our Sute will be entirely dependent »|>on our Public School» for their education—that more lh«n fnur flflh· of tlil« number trill be drawn Into ttie vaiiou· channel· of labor before they «hall attain to fourteen yean of age—that their own future for good orfo erll will be essentially tormed by the condition, character and quality of our Public 8ubool·, It lx> hoove· the mend» of education, the people, Legl· lature and offlcer· of the State to foster with a gen· erouf hand and lively Interest thl« moat Important department.

Children are detained at home for the most trivial reasons. This Is ofte done from thoughtlessness or from Iguo ranee of the evil· that grow ont of repeated absence, λ few days'absence la a term generally drop* the pupil behind his class. It msy require a vigorous u»e of all his powers and prompt attendance to com mand a respwtable standing. Soon disgust follows closely upon the heel* of discouragement, and there Is no longer any attraction either for school asso olates, school teacher or school house. Mortllled ambition cannot endure dally exposure. For the purposes of education, children are. In a certain sense, the property of tbe State. The law demands that property shall be taxed to support a Public School Ibr six months In each year. In return for tho payment of this tax, property has a right to de mand that children between certain ages shall avail themselves of these expensive facilities for a like term, or their equivalent at private schools. To In sure an efficient Public School system—to secure fur It In the public estimation that position and conll· deuce that the system should command, the stand ard of scholarship on the part of teachers should bo so rained that persons of nn Indinirent or defective education, unturtunalc In other departments of In dustry, would not venture, ai a temporary expedi ent, to aspire to the control of» Public School. The feeling 1· altogether too prevalent, that an/pcrvnn who can read and wrlrt Is competent to lusiruct a Primary School. II Is my deliberate Judgment that It requires more skill, a greater amount of tact, a wider range of general knowledge, and a clearer ap prehension of the complicated laws that control dif ferent children In a school of forty or tlily dttle ones, and to excite and maintain an luterest among thou who have no Idea of the value of education, than to awaken and maintain α like Interest among the same number of ailvauced scholars In a High School. Many of the wisest educators In the country have often expressed this sentiment with great filling and force. I regard teaching as the most Import ant as well as the most difficult of all the profes sions—one that demands of Its members Individ ually a more comprehensive knowledge of mental and moral philosophy, a quicker perception and knowledge of childish likes and dislikes of the nu merous springs of action, and how to turn them to awaken Interest, stimulate thought, produce disci pline and cheerful obedience, than those of any other of the Intellectual professions. No one Is re ?;arded competent to practice any of the learned pro ration· who baa not gone through a long course of professional tralnlag under the Immediate direc tion of their most eminent savans, to qualify hlui to dlichargo Intelligently the responsible duties lila profession may require. No one Is regarded compé tent to make a shoe or a shovel, a house or α hand saw, α coach or a crowbar, α broom, a bit or a bucket, without Orst serving an apprenticeship. The man who can make a steam engine, or who can control Its uiovcmcut after II I· made, will com mand more compensation than the public Is willing to |iav an ordinary teacher In a Public School, though every part of the engine, from Its feed to IU exhaust, with Its various Individual and combined uses, could be learned In a fortnight by a well disci pllued and well educated teacher, whose ndnd lias a mechanical tendency. Persons, to be teachers, should learn their profession by a course of discipline and training, under the direction of the most sue cesaful and celebrated educators lu the country. NoaMAI. SCHOOLS. Shut out and far removed aa our State Is from the great educational centers of the country, oar oppor tunities ar* slim Indeed to secure tlrst class teach ers. The best of the Imporlcd educators to the PaclDc Coast will be assorted and culled out by Ihe Educational Hoards of San Francisco, Sacramento and other part* of California, and we nave nothing bv which to Invite superior educator· to our desert homes, unless our School Boards oiler extravagant nay. wDlch cannot be expected—which would uvt oo ai ιυ wen. Our great educational want li a Normal School— an Institution to educate those of our youth ambi tious to bo tern hers and for educational honor»'—to train theui to meet the educational requirement* of our times and lor our peculiar locality; young men and women whose parents, relative» or friend», or all of them, reside In our State, and who probably will remain permanently with us. An Institution of thin character would. In addition to It* regular supply for our schools or well educated, well drilled and lire teacher», do much to awaken and foetcr throughout the State a spirit of Intellectual culture, and to brlug permanently before our people the grent value and Importance of popular education. An institution of this character should be located In one of the most populous town* of the State, where a sufficient number of pupils could be procured for the organltatlon of a training school, to be attached thereto: fora Normal School without this impor tant adjunct would be as Inefficient as a school for the study of praclcal chemistry that should Ignore the laboratory, with Its menstruutns and précipi tants, or of practical astronomy, without the aid of the heavenly bodle», quadrant» and telescope». Then» I». however, a considerable number of young people of respectable attainment» In our midst who have taught school more or lew, and ambitious to obtain a respectable rank In the profession of teach· lug, but whose knowledge of the theory aud prac tice of teaching Is altogether unequal to the ad· vanced educational claim» of the preeent time. Mauy of these would be drawn to an institution of this character to procure the proper Information and a diploma, which should be current with School Boards lu every district, and ahould displace the· local Boards of 8chool Kxamlncrs throughoot the State. The stay of this class would be longer or shorter according to their previous attainments and aptness to acquire. A Normal School would give forth Ita Unit fruit* from thta claas. Were the State in a pecuniary condition to organlxe and support an institution of thin character. It would not be an easy matter to over estimate lta value upon the public school interest In Nevada. But It need not necessarily be attended with great expense. The rent of a »mall building, the cost of fXirnltnre and the salary of one Professor, with trlfllug additional Incidental expenses, would bo alt the outlay that at present would be required. The permanent edifice and various ornamentations could followtho growth of the school and the Increase of the State School Fund, If the State would offer two thousand dol lar» annually for the ilrst two years, on condition that prilktc donation· would equal that sum, and to be added to It, I feel confident that that amount could be raised, and a.Normal School could boat once put Into a successful working condition. Some source of revenue could be created to raise this amount by the State, without seriously oppressing any person or cla»s. XKTKOKOLOGICAL OBSERVATIONS. There Is ouc subject that I would like to bring to your uotlce for your consideration. 1 am somewhat in doubt whether the present Is the proper time or thl» the proper chaunel, but with my Idea» as re gard* the comprehensive character of our Public School system, the proposed suggestions In this con nection, will be both legitimate and proper. It Is well kuown that the peculiar character of the climate of the vast ranges or these elevated table-lands be tween the Rocky and Sierra Nevada mountains, is but little known by our own people, and very Im perfectly understood by the people of the other States. A plan that would secure the proper re cording of accurate meteorological observation In those parts of the State where Public Schools would be likciv to be maintained throughout the year, would be a valuable contribution to science, aud In the course of a decade of years would throw much light In regard to our dlmate. One teacher In each of tho principal town» In the State, if furnished with the necessary Instrumenta for determining the heat and density of the atmosphere, the direction and force of tho winds, the amount of the fall of rain ami snow, aud a book for recording the necessary obser vations—all of which the Smithsonian Institute would undoubtedly checrfUlly supply—would, with a trifling addition to his salary. If so directed by law, accuratelv perform the tartt. These observations, published either weekly or monthly, would awaken, both on the part of the teachers, pupils and the pub lic generally, habits of clone observation In regaid to atmospheric ciianges. MtSDIXKCTlOjf OF TUB ntOCKED· Of THK HALF MILL TAX. The proceed» of the half mill tax, provided for In section 6 of Education, Article X or the State Con stitution, It occurs to me, wasdlTcrted by the last Legislature, from the use Intended by those who formed that lustmment. Section 54 of the School Law, approved March 3>th, lfcVS, provides that: "All moneys derived from the tax herein levied (half mill tax) shall be paid Into the State School Fund, and be apportioned In the tame manner as other money in tljat ftind"—that Is, tho Interest accruing shall be distributed to all the counties lu the State, according to the a»certalned number of peraons be tween the agee of six and elfhtetn rear» In said counties, for the support of Public Schools. The object of this hair mill tax was designed Particularly to create a fund for the sunport of the Mining Col lege—the mining branch or the University. It was the general opinion of the member» of the Constitu tional Convention that this tax would yield the first year (torn ten to fifteen thousand dollars, with a large annnal increase thereafter, and that at an early day the Intereat from the proceeds of this tax, and from other sources of revenue, would enable the Board of Regents to establish this branch of the University and to put it Into successful operation in a very short time. The section (6) referred to above of the Constitution, is la the following language, to wit: " The Legislature shall provide a special tax of one half of one mill on the dollar of all taxable property of the State, In addition to the other mean» pro vided for the support snd maintenance of said Uni vendty and common tehooh.*' „ . The last three words, "and common school*/ above, were coupled with the word University to make it sppear manifestly clear that the University was a part of the Public School system. The Inten tlon or the Convention, In regard to the disposal of the proceeds of this hslf mill tax, will more clearly appear by reference to sections, of the Educational Article .or the Constitution, which reads as follow* t0,*Thi Board of Régente «hall, accruing ftom th· ant fUodt (Ijoja "HIVM VVJMv uxuv. ...... .

It occur» to nie a» Important, that our Legislature Hlmuld bring one mutter, touching the I6th and 3»ith Sections of ear h township, donated by Congress fbr school purposes, prominently before that l>ody, and I trust tbat you will not fall to près* this matter earnestly upon the consideration of tho next Legis lature. These school section*, In the Eastern and Mississippi Valley States, with their Immense tracts of agricul tural lands, pome*» great value, and constitute a great source of revenue to the School Fonda In thOM States—because they arc likely to be surveyed by the General Government, and open to entry and sale. But with those elevated and almost barren lands of the mineral States, lietween the Kocky and Sierra Nevada mountains, which are not liable to be sur veyed to any great extent, or to Iks entered or sold, the matter is essentially dlflerent. They cannot have, under th· present regime of the Federal Gov ernment, much of value, as a source of revenue for our Public School aystem. To placc these mineral States upon an equality with those of the Atlantic, In regard to these ltohand 3fdh 8ectlone of each township—and no doubt Con gresa so designed, In making tho donation. It should survcv and open our mineral lands for entry and sale, (which, It Is not possible, will be done,) or allow the State the minimum value, the Government axes upon newly surveyed lands open for sale. In money, or else creaU floating land warranty, that the State Board of Education can locate upon any unlocatcd public lands In the Union. Th· reason a bleness of this suggestion would, I am confident, challenge the assent und secure the co-operation of a majority of that body, whose generous action, In behalf of public education, has ever been a marked characteristic.
