oreateda great deal of,laughter, owhig
to the humoroue way In which it was
dalivered. The singing by the school
aocompanied with the. organ was also
very niee and appropriate.
Tbe distributions of the gifts ,to the l®
scholars waa as is generally the case
very amusing and caused a great deal
of fan. Not only do> WAplace a bag of,
candy on the tree for éach scholar, but, itve,
also many substantial gifts/each as

Mapy of the readers af this article
know that I speak the truth, when l
sty that a |srga majority 6f the schools
•S thia Stats are cursed with jncom
petent and lazy teachers, who are far
bettor qualified
than to teach school.
Why is it I may ack that we .are
proud of the Bayards, the Sanjsbiiry«
aud many other bright minds of
State ? Is it on account of their superior
sense ? No ! only the advantage of cul
ture. I believe we have many boy*
growing up in our midst that b»ye just
as good common sense as the Bayards
or Saulsburys, but their minds have
been dwarfed by these droues in charge
of ear district schools—commonly call
ed teachers. Thao .as parent« let us
w«ke up to tby great necessities of the
hour, snd get some such act as I have
stated passed st the present Legislature,
aDd thereby secure for our children tha
(fastest blessing «e eao give them—a
good éducation.
I believe there is not a class of peo r
pie in the world worse swindled than
the tax-payers of this State are by the
present management of our free schools.
