of General Grant from New York to
Washington and build a monument

A short time ago the PostofBce
Department appointed a colored man
postmaster at Luverne, Alabama.
He was not wanted by the people of
that section, and they weren't slow in
letting the department know that

however, and thereupon the old
shanty in which he had located the
office was mysteriously burned.
Postmaster-General Wanamaker has
taken revenge, and at the same time
shown his calibre, by abolishing the

Official Visits to th? Public Schools.
BY JOSEPH MCMUKRAX.
The efficiency of the schools in any
county depends a great deal upon
what is said and done by the superin
tendent in his annual visits. Many
superintendents are puzzled to make
out just what their visits are intended
to find out about the schools and
their teachers. Some go without any
definite object in view, merely because
the law requires them to visit the
schools once during the year, and so
far as the information they obtain
aids them in making out their annual
report to the State Superintendent,
they could do it as well without the
visits as with them.
The requirement of the law is, "He
shall visit each school once during
the school term and note the course
and method of instruction and the
branches taught, give such directions
in the art of teaching and method,
thereof as seems to him necessary or
expedient, so that uniformity in the
course of studies and methods of in
struction may, as far as practicable,
be secured. He shall acquaint him
self with the character and conditions
of each school, noting any deficiency
inthegoverniuentof the school, classi- 1
tication of the scholars or methods of
instruction, and make such sugges
tions to the teachers as may appear
necessary to the good' order of the
school and progress of the scholars.
He shall note the character and con
dition of the school houses, the suffi
ciency or insufficiency of their furni
ture and fixtures and make such sug
gestions to the trustees and boards
of education as shall seem conducive
to the comfort and progress of the
scholars.1' But, says a Superintend
ent, "How can I do all this? It will
take too much time to do this at each
school."
It will not necessarily take any
more time than is usually given to
such visits. All he will have to do is
to keep open his eyes and ears and use
them.
There are more things that go to
make up a good teacher and a good
school. The mere preserving of good
order among the pupils and the hear
ing of recitations from text-books do
not alone constitute a good teacher
or make a successful school.
The Superintendent in his visits
should note the condition of the
fences about the school house and
grounds, the trees and shrubbery in
the yard, the outbuildings and the
outside of the school house. If he
finds palings or planks off, or hang
ing loose from the railing, for the
want of a nail or two; the trees scarred
up and shrubbery tramped down; the
doors of the outbuildings broken off
and the buildings in an unhealthy
condition; the outside of the school
house disfigured with cuts and pencil
marks, we may conclude that that
teacher cares little for the comfort and
health of his pupils or for the public prop
erty in his charge.
If there should be a recess while the
Superintendent is present, let him
note the behavior of the pupils about
the building and yard. If he sees
that the pupils run in and out of the
school room, sit up in the windows
kicking the plastering off with their
heels, climb up on the desks, throw
bits of meat and bread upon the floor,
tear up paper and throw the pieces
upon the floor, and that the school
room throughout has an uncleanly
and untidy appearance, he may con
clude that that teacher gives little atten
tion to the health , comfort , behavior and
moral training oj hi* pupils. Cleanliness
is next to Godliness.
While the school is in session, the
Superintendent should watch closely
the teacher's manner of calling up his
classes, the promptness of the pupils
in obeying his calls, his manner ol
asking questions and the character of
the answer received, his efforts to ex
plain any difficulties in the lessons,
the behavior of the rest of the school
while classes are reciting and how the
teacher secures order while engaged
in hearing classes recite.
If he sees the pupils come to recita
tion in a noisy and disorderly manner,
that the teacher has to make consid
erable effort to preserve order and
prevent confusion, during the move
ment of classes, that while he is hear
ing recitations the rest of the school
are disorderly aud the teacher seem
ingly unconscious of any disturbance
in the room, the Superintendent may
conclude that that teacher hat his school
under very bad control and that there is ab
solute need of improvement or he should
give it up.
If the teacher in hearing his classes
has to confine himself to the questions
and answers found in the text-books
and has to keep his eyes on the page
of the book to see whether a correct
answer is given, and compel his pupils
to give the exact wording of the book
without regard to its meaning, and
does not question them in terms they
know, to see whether they have a
clear understanding of the subject,
the Superintendent may conclude that
that teacher knows nothing of the art of
teaching and but little of the subjects taught.
A few practical questions asked of
the pupils will show the Superintend
ent what knowledge they have gaiued
of the subject and how the teacher
familiarizes them with the subject
and supplements, the text books in
order to keep his pupils wide awake.
An examination of the "daily regis
ter" will show the attendance and an
examination of the "teachers class
book" will show his classification and
what studies the several pupils are
pursuing and whether the teacher
and trustees are complying with the
law in compelling the pupils, accord
ing to their age and progress, to study
all the branches prescribed by the
school law.
'The Superintendent should inquire
particularly into this last matter, as
the success of the school and progress
of the pupils will depend upon what
the pupils are studying and how the
teacher keeps them up to their full
work in the schedule adopted for
grading the primary schools.
The eyes, ears and nose, if properlv
used, will give the Superintendent
better insight into the character of
the teaching, the progress of the
pupils and the condition of all the
school property than any questions
he may ask of the teacher. He can
see how the school is conducted, hear
j the kinds of questioning the teacher
follows and the instructions he gives,
and his nose *ill inforiu hUn of what
attention the teacher Rives to ventila
tion arid cleanliuess looking to the
health and comfort of the scholar*.
It must not he expected that the
teacher should make the little repairs
intimated aud the cleaning to be done
at his own expense, bat if there is any
expense attending them, the teacher
should present an itemized account o
the same at the close of the school
term and no trustees will refuse to
approve his just claim and no board
of education refuse to pay his account.
If the teacher should he a lady, she
can get the older boys to attend to
the little repairs for her and if ther*
are no boys she should herself call
the attention of the trustees to her
needs.
TO AID THK SUPKRINTKNDKST IN HIS
VISITS.
The following questions are sug
gested to recall to his memory what
he wants to learn.
What is the condition of the fences,
trees, shrubbery and outbuildings
about the school house?
Are these and the Bchool building
1 carefully looked after by the teacher
and trustees?
What is the condition of the school
furniture and fixtures? Are they prop
erly looked after by the teacher and
is the school room kept clean, com
fortable and well ventilated?
Does the behavior of the pupils in
dicate that the proper discipline is
maintained?
Do the pupils and classes move
about the school room in a quiet and
orderly manner aud do they show a
proper respect to the wishes of the
teacher?
Is the school regularly classified and
graded and is the teacher careful to
keep up his classification and grades?
Are the school exercises conducted
in a systematic and orderly manner?
Does the teacher teach by example
as well as precept? Does he keep his
daily register properly and does he
keep a class book in addition to the
register?
Are the pupils, according to their
age and progress, required to study
all the branches prescribed for the
primary schools? If not, why not?
Is the school supplied with the fur
niture and fixtures necessary for the
comfort, convenience and progress of
the pupils?
Is the attendance regular and
prompt and is the teacher carefui to
make the absentees keep up withtheir
classes?
Does the teacher have regular week
ly reviews for his older pupils and
how are they conducted?
Does the teacher have occasional
oral and written exercises in sentence
making and composition?
How does he supplement the work
of the text book in explaining and
simplifying the subject to the pupils
in order to secure more interest in
school work?
Are the recitations conducted in
such a manner as to draw out what
the pupils know about the matter,
or to learn what they remember of
the text books and rules?
Any deficiencies and delinquencies
on the part of the teacher should be
privately brought to his notice by the
Superintendent and the matter re
ported to the trustees in writing for
their consideration and guidance.
Complete and Permanent.
In the early part of last year I had
a violent attack of rheumatism, from
which I was confined to my bed for
over three months, and at times was
unable to turn myself in bed, or even
raise the cover. A nurse had to be in
constant attendance day and night.
I was so feeble that what little nour
ishment I took had to bo given me
with a spoon. I was in constant
agony, and sleep was entirely out of
the question except when I was under
the influence of opiates.
After calling in the best local phy
sicians, and trying all other medicines
without receiving any benefit, I was
induced by friends to try Swift's
Specific (S. S. S.). I discontinued all
other medicines, and took a course of
S. S. S.? thirteen small bottles?
which effected a complete and per
manent cure. , ,,

An gating Sore.
Mr. C. B. McLemore, a prominent
aud influential citizen of Henderson,
Texas, writes under date of August
23, 1889, as follows:
?'For eighteen months I had an eat
ing sore on my tongue. I was treated
by the best local physicians, but ob
tained no relief, the sore gradually
growing worse. I concluded finally
to try S. S. S., and was entirely cured
after using a few bottles.
You have hit cheerful permission to
publish the above statement for the
benefit of those similarly afflicted."

the saloons of that place. Soifte tiuie*
ago she served notice upon the pfro-'
prietors of several saloons forbidding
them to Bell liqaor to her husband,
who is an ex-county clerk and promi
nent in the business world. These
notices were uniformly disregarded,
and few days ago she entered one of
the drinking places and smashed a
costlv mirror. On Tuesday she went
into Roseau's saloon, threw a ham
mer through a large mirror and broke
the front window of the place. She
has not been arrested, and public sen

means to keep up her peculiar style
