Palestine is perhaps tho best known country of its si.e on the face of the earth. It is only I i miles from Jerusalem to the Jordou und it is .'M miles from Jerusalem to the sea.

The IKUh school district, over which this trouble came up, has two factious, each claiming they are right and all hinges on the legal lines of the district, and the decision of the courts will be required to settle the legality or illegality of the school tax. Neither party will consent that the other Is right and it seems that our Superintendent of common schools halts on a decision about the boundaries and hears one side of the story nnd concludes thnt side is right; then when the other side is told reverses tho decision. Tlio records must bo deficient regarding these lines from some cause or this trouble could bo stopped bysimplo reference to the record.
