Who is a true man 1 He who docs the truth and never holds a principle on which he Is not prepared in any hour to act, and in any hour to risk the consequences of holding It. Thos. Carlyle. The school teacher and editor have much in common. Both strive to give people something that will make them better with little hope of large remuneration. But that is their busi ness and they have a reward in results accomplished. We hear of a young man who pro posed to three school boards and they all accepted on the same day. That w.'is a bad predicament but it might have been worse. Jewell Republican. What if it had been three school ma'ams ? In that event he certainly would have been in a dilemma. The enterprising teacher Is ever on the alert for matters of interest to patrons. Success demands that the public receive what it desires.

Matthews, of Emporia, won first place in the Inter-State Oratorical Contest at De Kalb, 111. Besides Kansas, speakers were present from Missouri, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. Missouri took second place. Kansas may always be depended on to furnish the man for the occasion. There are 120 districts in Phillips county which give employment to 151 teachers. The average amount of all monies raised for school purposes In the county is about $45,000 annually.

The scholar is that man who must take up Into himself all the ability of the time, all the contributions of the past, all the hopes of the future. He must be an university of knowledges; if there be one lesson more than an other which should pierce his car, it is, Tho world Is nothing the man is all; in yourself is the law of ail nature and you know not yet how a globule of sap ascends ; In yourself slumber the whole of Reason; it is for you to know all; It Is for you to dare all.
