THE MCHOOIi BOARD:
Just what our school board propose to
do in regard to hiring a teacher is not
altogether clear, but it is safe to predict
that no lady teachcr will get the school.
The majority of the board are very much
opposed to such an arnngement, and so
long as they are our people have but little
to fear from them in that direction.
We believe that the board desire to act
in a manner which will result in the
most good to the people. Mr. Lees,
as well as Mr. McKechnie, stated
to us not long since, that they
would not in any degree favor the in
stallment of a lady teacher, but would use
their power to an advantage more suiting
to the wishes and interests ot the people.
We do not oppose the hiring of a lady
t»aclier because we are particularly preju
diced against them, for we are not, and
believe that some of the most reliable and
able teachers thac bless our land to-day
are ladies. The point is right here: If
we cannot afford to hire more than one
teacher at present, and we are of tbo
opinion that we cannot, could a lady
teacher, with no more than ordinary abili
ty do a school of one hundred scholars
justice? Every intelligent rea&oncr iu
the county will agree with us when we
answer most emphatically, no. If our
county was able to stand the extra ex
pense we would be In faror of hiring
two teachers instead of one. Could we
see our way clear in this direction we
would then favor the engagement of a lady
teaclicr whose duties it would be to give
instructions to the primary department,
leaving the more advanced portion of the
school in the hands of a capable gentle
man tcacher. The assertion that we are
personally prejudiced against Mrs. Shoe
maker, and en ttfat account are opposed
to her being engage! is basely false. We
have made no assertions either publicly
or privately, in regard to Mrs. Shoemaker
which would in any way convey the idea
that wc are personally prejudiced against
her. We are not favor of her teaching
the school for the same reasons that we
would oppose any other lady tocher who
might be endeavoring to get it.
Immigration into the United States fur
this year promises to be greater than for
any year for a quarter of a century.
Our farmers are rejoicing in consequnce
the late rain and snow storms. They
claim that tliey will prove vary beneficial
to the wheat and oats crop.
Mr. Windom's stock is raising some in
Washington, where he is regarded as the
most prominent representative of the in
terests of the Mississippi valley.
There is a great mystery about the cause
of the death of the two men whose bodic*

Yankton Press: The movement of pop
ulation froin east to west shows no indi
cations of abatement, but rather swells as
the years go by. Kansas has grown 100,
000 to 1,000,000 in less than twenty
years, is still receiving large accessions,
while beyond the it tide ot immigration
is flowing occrnss the plains of Colorado
and climbing its argentiferous mountains.
Nebraska free lands have been in great
part absorbed, but it is daily growing in
number at a rate that will aoon place it
side by side with its southern sister. And
Dakota, where five years since the organ
ized counties would unmber less than
twenty aud settlements were few atfd far
between, is now tbe home of the 150,000
people and is augmenting its population
with gieat rapidity. If signs ot the times
should not fail our territory will nearly
double its numerical strength during the
present year, and civilization will hove
penetrated its most remote corner. The
end of the free land policy of our gener
ous government is drawing rapidly, so
far as its practical benetiits are concerned,
and within five years, at least, should there
be no abatement immigration, agricultural
lands for premption and tbe grand beacon
of the mighty west will lose its luster
and attraction. Still there will room tor
millions more, and in the light of the
past we can safely feci that the room will
Coal and Shrubbery.
J. S. Warn writea to the Mandan Cri
terion as follows:
"I am asked the question a thousand
times, and receive letters by every mail,
asking the same question, when will I bb
ready to furnisii coal to thoie who wish
to buy. I will answer all aa one: Aa
soon aa I can get a switch so that I can
get a car off the main track. The mine is
in good 8liape, and I am all ready to put
a sufficient number of men at work to get
out coal enough to supply the demand.
I have been to a heavy expense in running
the main entry, which is now in under
the hill one hundred and fifty feet, and
well timbered with solid oak timber. The
vein is over three feet thick, with a solid
rock roof. My aim is to deal fairly, and
furnish you good coal as cheap as I can
afford to and as aoon as I am prepared I
will let you all know*
I am doing now what I would like to
see every man along the line of the road
do that is, setting out tiees, grape vines,
straWberries,' raspberries, and even rose
bualies. What do you think of that away
out here on the prairie* I should have
done this long ago, only I did not want
to make bitching posts for Sitting Bull.
That old savage doesn't like me very well,
anyway. I have settled here to stay, and
there is roam for lots more. It will be a
pleasure to me to show any one around
who wants to aettle and make a home.
Crueltjr to litor/s.
A neighbor has just been in to allow us
tbe privilege of scrutinizing a bank note
of the denomination of $100. We could
n't remember having done anything to
this neighbor mean enough to justify him
in taunting us by paradiug before our
weak and sensitive orbs such unnustaka*
ble evidences of wealth, and fumbled
around in our pocket for a nickla to heave
at his head, but alas! our hand came out
with a canceled reveuue stamp sticking
to it and he shuffled out without asking
us cither to "fumigate" or "irrigate."
