The l'ast, Present ami Future.
It is one of the common attributes of
mankind to at a certain period stop and
lookback "to see how far we have
come;" to contemplate the progress
we have made an<l victories won, and to
consider our errors and defeats. To
heartened and inspired to futnre effort
by the former: cautioned and instructed
by the latter. It has also, from th«
earliest times, been the desire of men tc
leave behind them some memorial
whereby to perjH-tuate their names ami
As these things are tme of the indi
vidual, so are they of the associated
l>odies into which man. being a grega
rious creature, incoriH)rates himself foi
' the purpose of successfully conducting
the affairs of human society, and th<
complicated affairs of civic life.
Thus it is that the consummation of
the first hundred years in the existence
of such of our i>olitieal divisions as have
reached that period (towns, counties,
cities, state or Nation) has been made
the occasion of extraordinary exhibi
tions of public spirit, enthusiasm, jubila
tion and display.
And this is right. It is natural.
It is not only a pleasure and a privi
lege to thus give full expression to our
sentiments on such an occasion, but it
is a duty which we owe to our forefatli
ers and. to posterity. We should be
derelict in our duty to 1 hose who have
gone before, to whom we owe much of
what is today ours, did we fail to fit
tingly commemorate the worK of those
earnest-hearted pioneers: and we also
owe it to posterity to, at this time,make
adequate record of our progress in th.
past and a full exhibit of our present
condition and attainments. Project
yourself forward, in imagination,
hundred years and consider with what
avidity your descendants and successors
will seize npon such a record as will be
contained in the story of our first Cen
tennial celebration.
It is in the light of such considera
tions that we must now act.
The Cause of The Trouble.
' Col M. S. Uuay, Gov. William
Stone, Lieut. Col JamesE. Barnett and
a numlier of other Quay politicians,held
H conference yesterday at the Duquesn.
hotel. The main object was to devw
ways and means to defeat
Acheson for Congress in Washing 01
county next Saturday. Pittsburg tx
This clipping reveals the cause of the
troubles that arise in our party the nn
warranted interference by outsiders 11
our local affairs. What business hiu
Gov. Stone. Col. Quay or any outsidei
to interfere with affairs in Washingtor
county'! If Gov. Stone would attend I
his duties as governor, he would hav*
enough to keep him busy, and besides
that the people did not commission bin
to use the influence of his office to hell
defeat Mr. Acheson for Congress, or t(
interfere in any of our elections. Hi<
same way when Col. Quay was Senator
there could hardly I*) an election in am
county in the State without his havint
a supervision over it, and this is wbai
has led to so much discord in our party
If our Governors, our Senators, am
other officials would attend to the dutief
of the offices to which they are electee
and let the Republicans of the conntie
conduct their primary elections in then
own way, when elections are over, th»
people will be satisfied. But this inter
ference by public officers, and gn at
corporations like the Standard ( "
Company and the Sugar Trust, leads tc
the dissatisfaction in our ranks am.
makes a nomination scarcely worth
having. It must be stopped or ther<
will be a revolt against it.
LAST year the valley of the Brazos
river in Texas was flooded and there
was a great loss of life and property .
this year it is the valley of the Colorado
river, on which the capital of the state. ,
Austin, is located. Their big two-mil

the Irish Fnsilliers and twoof the Ninth
Regiment, at Bethany station, on the
railroad aliout forty miles sonth of
Bloemfontem. The five companies were
surrounded by a superior force of
Boers aud compelled tc surrender. The
affair indicates that Gen. Rol>erts will
have to leave all his southern communi
cations heavily guarded before he ad
vances northward from Bloemfcntein.
On Tuesday a battle was reported as
having lieen fought near Meerkatfon

Of the Republican primary elections

the most interesting, and the connty
was carried by the Quayites by a small

Senator Galinger, of New Hampshire,
in a speech of al*>ut three-quarters of an
hour's duration last Thursday, showed
conclusively that the governor of Penn
sylvania had violated the constitution
of the United States by appointing
Matthew Stanley Quay to a seat in the
Senate when the Legislature failed to
elect his successor, although in session
after the vacancy occurred. The sen
ator contended that it was the plain
duty of Gov. Stone to have called the
Legislature in extra session after no
selection had l>een made. On Friday,
Senator Sullivan of Mississippi, Demo

Centennial Notes.
Last week the Invitation Committee
of the Centennial Celebration got to
gether and organized, its chairman pre
siding. and electing H. H. Gaucher,
Esq. Secretary.
The matter of the scope or extent "f
the Invitations to lie given was discuss
ed and resulted in the appointment of a
committee of three, consisting of James
X. Moore. Esq.. James M. Galbreath,
Esq., and Mr. John Findley, to prepare
a letter and send same to the different
parts of -the county, to ascertain the
former citizens of Bntler county now
liviug in other parts of the country who
should receive invitations.
Capt. Geo. W. Fleeger and T. C.
Campbell. Esq.. were appointed a com
mittee to Suggest the subjects for the
speakers or persons to make addresses
at the celebration. A committee of
three was appointed to look after this
I matter and make report as to same.
The committee will meet again at the
call of the chairman.
The Executive Committee of the Cen ;
tennial will have another meeting at j
the office of its Chairman on Friday i
evening coming 13th inst.
Great interest is taken all over the
county in the matter of relics and the
people of the different townships and
towns seem to be vying with each other
as to which can bring to the Centennial
the largest and best collection of old
and interesting relics.
As an instance we have learned of
one person who proposes bringing a
table cloth that Washington ate dinner
upon in passing through this county
about 150 years ago. Another one will
have parts at least of an entirely wood
en plow, used of necessity by some of
our early first settlers. Many other ar
ticles of rpre interest will lie brought.
The Finance Committee is making
progress in the matter of securing the
ne< -essary funds for the celebration near
ly SISOO are now subscribed in this town
alone. The books sent out through the
county have not as yet been returned,
but reports from many are that subscrip
tions throughout the county will be as
equally liberal as here.
As soon as completed a list of the
names of all of the subscribers to the
Centennial fund will be published. This
may be in a week or two.

Tno Butler High School.
(Extract from Prof. Gibson's report to
the State Sup'd'tSchaeffer.)
The growth of onr high school con
tinues. Both the average monthly
enrollment and the graduating class
were the largest in the history of the
school, the latter numliering thirty
seven. The school board has under
consideration the addition of a commer
cial course to the high school curricu
lum. If this contemplated step should
i>e taken the new course will l»e made
largely a specialty for the last year, and
pupils' in this department will be re
quired to pursue the main portion of
the present curriculum. It is hoped
that in this way the culture value of
tlie high school work w ill not be impair
ed and that at the same time those who
may iv>t be able to pursue their educa
tion in higher institutions may have
the opportunity of acquiring that
which may be of more direct value in
earning a livelihood.
Since we have semi-annual promo
tions in all the grades below the high
school, we are confronted with the prob
lem as to how often pupils shall be ad
mitted to the high 3chool. Admission
lx>th at the beginning and at the mid
dle of the year seems to be the only
logical solution so long as the system of
semi-annual promotions is continued.
And the value of this system of promo
tions in our schools seems to be proven
beyond question'by the large percent
age of our pupils who are capable of
doing but one step in a school year, and
who consequently would accomplish
nothing satisfactorily if the steps were
so long as annual promotions would re
quire that they should l>e.
The compulsory attendance law has
not given us satisfoctory results. The
law is very defective to say the least.
The professional zeal and untiring in
dustry of our teachers, the progressive
spirit an<l liberality of our school l>oard. j
and the loyalty and enthusiasm of the j
general public in behalf of onr schools j
are most encouraging features of our
work. With such conditions as these
we are looking forward to bright pros
pects in the future.

1 Whose tiny hands arc folded
: Upon the breast of love,
A sweet smile lingers 011 his face
While his spirit rests above.
' He is like a budding lily,
' Forbidden here to grow,
Even in death most beautiful,
j As pure and bright as snow.
Sad, though within the icy grave
We lay liim down to rest.
We know he will blossom
011 the Saviour's loving breast.
So Floyd dear, a kind farewell,
We must put you from our si^ht,
I '.ut your uuiles will .■■till be with us
In davkneNß aud the light.
