Oun job department is very complete, j
and we can furnish all classes of work ;
as neatly and cheaply as can be done,
live us a call and we'll warrant satis
faction. It would make you smile, equal to
that produced by laughing gas, to take
a look through John J. Miller's large
.-lock of fall and winter clothing and
gents' furnishing goods, boots, shoes,
Uoos, hats anil caps:
Dysai-t's pork packiug house, at
Bolckow, has suspended operations for
this season, hoving packed this winter
0,000 head of hogs.
Tx our report of the "Christmas Tree"
at the Episcopal Church, wo forgot to
mention the name of Mrs. Wm. S.
Greenlee, who was the luckiest lady in
the house. Her present was that of a
ladye's fine gold watch.
We can't say we are just exactly sat
isfied with the way Stiles & Hardy do
their advertising. They don't advertise
much in the papers, and yet they are
selling a heap of goods, and candor
forces us to admit they have a fine store.
It is astonishing how many fine things
can be crowded into a store-room. We
are led to this remark by looking over
the holiday goods at Sargent & Wilker
son's drug store, south side the Square.
A customer said to Earls1 face : "You
sell Queensware and Lamps cheaper
than any house in town." Weed blush
ed and said: "Take 'em."
W. B. Howahd, of this place, has an
extensive Nursery of No. 1. Fruit Trees,
which he will have reedy for Spring
sales. Our farming frieads will please
make a note of thiB, and be gettrng their
orders ready.
Notice is given to the public gener
ally that Johu J. Miller, northeast of the
Square, ha3 received z. large and com
plete supply of fall and winter goods
Litest styles consisting of ready-made
clothing, hats, caps, boots and shoes,

examine goods and prices before buy
ing elsewhere.
The Semi-Annual Statement of the
financial condition of the Farmers'
Bank, in this place, up to the beginning
of the present year, appears in our adver
tising columns this week. This shows its
affairs to rest on a healthy basis, and
that its management is entrusted to able
aud safe bands.
We understand that Sir. S. E. Pear
son, of the firm of Greenlee S
will retire from that firm this Spring,
and commence the practice in Nebraska.
Mr. George E. Iving, who has been a
teacher In our county for several years
past, will take his place, and the firm
will continue under the name of Green
lee & King. Mr. King is a young law
yer, just admited to the Bar last spring,
and is most favorably known to our cit
izens as a 3"oung man of fine ability,
upright and honorable in all his dealings
With his assiduous attention to his busi
ness, aided by the "level" and experien
ced head of the Senior partner, the pub
lic may rest assured all business entrus
ted to the firm will be properly attended
What more acceptable New Year's
gift could be given to a distant friend,
who formerly resided in Andrew
county, than to send him a copy of the
Repit.lican for 1875? It would be to
him equal to a weekly letter from home!
More than that, for no letter would con-
J tain all the information a copy of the
paper does, for it collects the news from
all over the county and adjacent couu
tics. A person away from home reads
the paper with more relish, and scans
over the items more closely, than the
home reader even the local advertise
ments arc all matters of interest to him.
Grange Wedding.
Rochester, Jan. 5, 1S75.
A prominent Master of the Grange,
living between the Piatt and Hundred
and Two, drove into Savannah about 9
o'clock i. in., and was bound by the
ties of matrimony, in the presence of
'Squire Johns and others, and returned
home with his bride, brought the buggy
back to Savannah, and returned to his
quiet school-room. The weather being
extremely cold, he did not return until
3Ionday at 2 p. m.
We hope our friend will not forget his
school, aud when he gets time, he will
invite his friends in and make due apol
ogy for taking such great liberties with
out counseling his brother grangers and
lyceum friends.

From Fillmore.
January, 1875.
EniTOit Republican : The holi-
davs are over, and now to business.
Our little town has been quite in-
terestcd ami entertained for a few
j days.by the meetings ot the Teachers'
j Institute, which have been held here !
j during the past week. Such meetings '
i are a benefit to any society; and if
j the people could all attend them
three, four, or even six times a year,
j no one would be loser by them. It
was expected that Holt county would
join with us, but from some cause
unknown to your correspondent, only Eve. Rev. N'. JI. Smith united in
one or two of the teachers of Holt at- lloly matrimony Mr. Spencer George
tended. Xo doubt the Auditor of the and Miss Maggie J. Xucholls. The
Institute will furnish you a complete ceremony wad performed at the resi
rccord of the doings of the Institute, deuce of Jabc Powell, the step-father
but he, being a very bashful man.may of the bride. Mr. Oscar Berry and
not be willing to give himself and i Miss Ida Warner, Mr. J. C. Wheaton
others of the teachers, all th.. credit ! and Miss Fatinie Xucholls olliciated
i who remained away, it is their loss,
j All those present seemed to enjoy
1 themselves; and if the Institute could
have held all the week, it. would have
pleased many in this vicinity.
For our part we are not in favor of
holding the Institute during the lioli- j
days, for two or three reasons. One i
is, that many of the teachers wish to
spend those days amongtheirfrieuds,
aud others wish to attend the festi
vals and social gatherings generally
held during the holidays. These dis
tract the attention of the teachers
from the business of the Institute.
Another reason is, that it ia nearly
always cold and disagreeable weath
er, ami although this season was not
so bad as last, and two years since.
still it was not pleasant. Your cor
respondent thinks that this season of
tho year is too cold, and six months
from this time, or J uly, is too hot,
and that a mean between the two
would be better. Say for instance,
during the month of 3rarch, or about
the time that the winter schools arc
drawing to a close, and again in Sep
tember, or about the time that the
winter schools are about to begin.
Teachers of Andrew, think of this,
and let us so work upon our Execu
tive Committee, that they will sec
that the best time shall be the time
for holding the Institutes in the
You will got all the proceedings of
the Institute from the proper oflieer;
but there are a few points we wish to
touch upon, that will not be in the
regular proceedings. We wish to no
tice the lecture of Dr. Simmons, of
Rochester, and must say that it was
a lecture full of interest to all those
engaged in the high and noble calling
of educators. We wish that the
teachers of this county could be as
well entertained at every Institute ;
and if the Institutes could meet
monthly, and be as well entertained,
all the better.
Some of the questions discussed,
from the query box, were full of in
terest. One in particular was not all
brought out, viz: What relation do
parents sustain to the public schools?
So far as our experience goes, a ma
jority of them sustain no further re
lation than this : They are conven
ient places to send their children to
get them out of the way, but so far as
anything else is concerned, the pa
rents do not know or seem to care
what the children arc doing wheth
er they are improving mentally, mor
ally, intellectually or physically. In
fact, our experience is, that they care
more for the physical part than any
other, as some of them are told to
whip certain others, and, of course,
this must be to develop the physical
powers. The parents never come to
the school to see what is going on,
whether the teacher is endeavoring
to do his duty or not, and all they
know about it is hearsay, and if it is
anything good about the teacher,they
will not believe it, but should it be a
slight mistake or wrong action on the
part of the teacher, Id ! how ouick
is our ant-hill become a mountain.
How msny of the patrons of the
schools would employ a person for
any other business and pay as little
attention to the way the work was
being1 done ?
There were other questions of im
portance in the query box, but the
time would not allow of their discus
sion. The exercises were all of great
interest to the teachers present, and
where all was so well done, it is hard
to particularize; but we cannot re
frain from speaking of the class drill
in written arithmetic, conducted by
our worthy teacher, E. T. Pettit.
His manner of conducting the exer-1
' eiscs, and his manner of drawing out
; the ideas of the pupils, to know if
they fully understand the principle-;
, involved in the lessons, are excellent.
and tell well for the teacher of our
1 school in Fillmore.
But it is unnecessary to iro through
with all the doings. Let tho.-e who
feel interested, attend the Institute,
and our belief is that they will be
beuelltled. Everything passed oil"
harmoniously, ami we, for one, wa
sorry to have it i-lose so soon.
