Attorney FOYI.K has his new residence, on j Third street, nearly ready for occupancy. It is said to he one of the most convenient, well j arranged dwellings in town. We bespeak for j Mr. F. and his good wife many years of happi-; ness in it. The particular attention of school directors and tax-pavers is directed to a decision of Su- \ periiitondent Wn I.KRSUA.M, in another col umn. Observance of the law will save direc- - tors much annoyance and prevent imposition of penalties. ♦ The old adage "it never rains hut it pours," i lias been verified ill Mr. M AI.LOKY'S experi ence. Lately he sold his fast horse for $lO,- 500, and now he has disposed of the old Fall Creek cars, which have been idle on the track near the Nail M ills for the past four or live J years, for, report says, nearly $40,000. The public will regret to learn that <>ur ex- ; cellcnt friend, W. 11. I). (JRKKN. is about to vacate the hotel at Burlington. I'nder his administration the hostelrie has gained an; enviable reputation with the traveling public, and it will be fortuiite indeed if the house ; falls into such excellent hands again. Mrs. ( G. knows how to prepare a meal lit for a i prince. A corresondent of the fiuzejte <l' Jin Met in travelling in Kansas and visiting Topeka. met a former citizen of thiseouiity. He says: "We called on M. 11. CASE. Esq., mayor of the city, who is an old acquaintance, and was formerly—some fourteen, years ago—a young j lawyer of Canton. Pa., and frequntly attend-, ed courts in Williamsport. He B now serving his third term as mayor. This shows what a young man may accomplish by taking (IIIKK- I.KY's advice and going west. The publishers of the Jieporter will give | their readers a large and neatly printed j Chrismas supplement. The patrons of this papor ought to appreciate such evidences of enterprise and prosperity on the part of the publishers. It allbrds another proof that the Reporter is what it purports to be, the best paper published in Northern Pennsylvania, and as such is entitled to the generous and undivided support of the Republican party.

Ilth and 12th —Visited the following schools and teachrs: Lcßoy, No. s. Nolle Lvon: No. 2. Arville Webster; No. 1. Belle Chaapcl. Sinithlield —No. 14, Man Brighani; No. It!, Enos Uuhhard; No. 17. Mahlon Thomas; No. 15, Claudes 11 u lhut. Director McCranev present at No. 8, Lcßoy, sharply criticised a number who came late, and would compel a number of youth idling t line in streets, had he power, to attend school. The sentimentalities opposed to compulsory education, are constantly attributing non-at tendance to defective teaching. No. 3 and No. 8, Lcßoy Village, are both excellent schools, yet half a score of street Arabs were playing ball within a stones throw of the schools, and the director said nothing could induce them to attend. One of them was offered several shillings per week to stop swearing and smoking, and to attend school, hut he was incorrigible. With such, "what will the harvest be?" Schools doing well. No. 17, Kmithtield, could bear from teacher a h'ttle more snap. No. 1, Lellov, showed admirable results in writing. This important branch has for sveral years been really neglected in our schools, but it is seldom now that a teacher is found in our county who is not doing good work in this subject. Book of Inle.

Items from the Can'on Sentinel of this week : A barn belonging to FRANK MAYO, and situated nearly opposite his residence, was destroyed by tire Tuesday night. The tire originated in the loft of the barn, and nearly all of its contents was saved. The Indepen dent boys were on hand, but their services were but little needed. We acknowledge the receipt of an invita tion to the Seventh Annual Reception of the Naiad Co. No. 2. of Towanda. which will he held on New Year's night. From the well known character of the gentlemen composing the managing committee, a grand affair may safely be assured. Mr. 11. B. PARSONS has recently been.mak ing a canvas with a view to obtaining a cor rect list of the adult residents of this boroUgh. The result shows that there are 312 males and 324 h males, making the total adult population of the borough 636. As the adult population of any town is estimated to be about two lift lis of the entire population, it foilows that the population of Canton at the present time is something.like sixteen hundred. Country dealers will find it to their advant age to HUV their candies at FITCH'S. ATIIKNS. December 13th. At a meeting last night the subject of a reading room was discussed, and we are now in a fair way to have that much needed insti tution in this place. We hope it will prove a success, as it will, if the present plans are carried out. WILL. The continued mild weather has induced !

IMPORTANT TO SCHOOL DIREC TORS AND TAX PAVERS—The fol lowing decision of the Superintendent of Public Instruction is of great importance to tax-payers a* well as directors, a* violation ;of the law upon the subject will deprive di - tricts of the State appropriation, and subject Directors to severe penalties: DKPAKTMKNT OK Pru. INS., I llarrishurg, Pa., Dec. 1, IS?.). J| There is hut one time in the year when di rectors can adopt a new series of text books for the schools under their charge, or change i old ones, and that is between the time of electing teachers and the opening of the j schools. Section 215, Act of M. y 1, 1S")4, says: " That immediately after the annual election I of teachers in each school district of the state, and be fere the opening of the schools tor the ensuing term, there shall he a meeting of the I dimeters or controllers and teachers of each j district; at which meeting the directors or [ controllers shall decide upon a series of school hooks, in the different branches to he taught during the ensuing school year; which books, and no other, shall be used in the schools of the district during said period.'' Such is the law, with this exception, that books cannot now be changed more frequent l\ than once in three years. • J. P. WICK ERSII AM. Superintendent Public Instruction. BUSINESS LOCALS.
