On Tuesday the Board of Elucation
etfctsd lor tbe next session nearly one
hundred teachers, and of this large
number it will bs seen that nearly all
were women. Indeed, one of the moit
notable characteristics of our eity
school system In the United States is
the overwhelming preponderance of
women teachers. So great is this pre
ponderance that the cities where male
teachers are employed in eleraentay
ohools, iu any other capacity than as
principals or as teachers oi special
sub j acts, such aa German, for example,
may be reckoned tbe exceptions. In
the high schools, tbe proportion cf
male teachers is much larger thsn in
the elementary grades. In tbe mixed
bigh schools, especially in the larger
ctties, tbe number of male teach
rs is, perhaps, nearly equal to that
of the female teachers. Where tbe
high schools are unmixed, those for
boys are taught by male ttachers,
while the schools for girls are taught
mostly by female teachers under the
din ction of a male princ'pa'. In the
largo.-1 cities, Baltimore, Boston,
Brooklyn, Chicago, Cincinnati, New
Orleans, New Yrrk, Philadelphia, San
Fiaocisco and St. Louis, there are 11,
154 female teachers and only 1170 male
teacher. Id the c't'es of Columbus,
().; Indianapolis, Kansas City, Little
Rwk, Memphis, Milwaukee, Newark,
PitUburg, Fortlard, Mo.; Finland,
Ore; Piovidencs, Niw Haven, Cleve
land and Denver there aie 2700 fema'o
tearheisaud only 203 male teachers.
Memphis is rrtditod with fifty-seven
female tea- bets end eight male teiacb-
wr. It will be icen frcm tbo-efig-tJ-es
that the avenge proportion
of rxale tcacheis to fiuia'e t cach
ets h one to ton. ins aver
age of other c ties w uld be about the
amis, rhi'adelphta bos the lowest
prui orllon cf male teacher?, but tbe
male teachers employed ate actually

thise except the high school teachers
teiug confined t the cate and in

fair, ach having a laige number of
rlaistaai.d (etchers undir hisdirec

the pioport on of male teachers is
about B'X times ss gnat as that ot

targe I'itiea where the proportion la

la Milwiukee there are several male
principals of ptimary school?; as well
aa eome tut ordinate male teachers of
tl strict ichro's, and, in addition,
number of special male teachers of tbe
Ge'niau language, and hence tbe nigh
rtio of male teachers ss compared
i h other cities. In acme cases Ja-

Urge mixed schools composed of
grammar and primary grades. In
Cleveland the experiment was made
several years ago of placing all the el-

was attacked by a Jersey bull four
Tenrs old, U sced by hia horus to a dis
Unca of twentT-five feet, and severely,
if net fatally, injured. Dr. Jones wes
called to his bedside immediately. At
tho time oi this writing the doctor has
not returned His sou, who came ft r
the physician, repotted bis father un
conscious, and it ia greatly feared the
injuries received are fatal.
Our coroner and ranger died last
spring, leaving vacant th-t cftVe. and
onthedea h of tne Sheriff, Desoto
couoiy would be without a Sheriff
until an elf c ion could be ordered,
and as Maj. D ckery's place as offl
cer, neighbor, citizm encl friend conld
not easily bs supplied, everyone de
sires bis speedy recovery.
Later. Dr Jones has returned and
ssys the injuiiea received by Maj.
Dockety may be Berion-s but not
necessarily fatal.
