Goodhue, our supervis or elect, was born in Lawrence, Mass. in 1854, soon after moving to Ver mont and living on a farm with his parents. A graduate of Thetford A cademy, and special instruction iu the higher brandies under l'rof. K. H. Darling and J. M. Comstock, A. M Mr. iiooutiue first taught school in Lebanon, X. II., was afterwards prin cipal of the graded school at West Lebanon, Chelsea Academy, Cookville graded school and academy, West Fairlee and Vershire and other places lie came to Wells Hiver and took charge of the graded school of that place in the spring of '83, continuing in that complicity for four yeurs. He was a member of the Orange county examining board three years, was elected Sunt, of schools in Newbury, March '88. Mr. Goodhue brings with him to this important olfice, a ripe experience as a teacher, a thorough knowledge of the geography of Orange county and an extensive ac quaintance with a lurge number of the best teachers and educators iu the county. The majority of the people of this county are unreservedly oppos ed to the new school law, and it is safe to say that the couuty supervisors of Vermont have the destiny of the law in their own hands. The supervisors will be open to the most rigid criticisms and our people should remember they are mortal, simply human, and noth ing more, and unless there is a har monious bleudiug of the people with the supervisors the two years' triul of the school law before another legisla ture convenes, will be an extravagant waste of money. We should also keep in constant view, the fact that we need the criticism and advice, not the super visor. The new law cannot be given a fair and impartial trial unless there be a co-operation of the people and the the supervisor. Orange couuty has 210 common schools, bib terms of school, 4.488 different scholars at tending school and 348 teachers. The new law makes ten months a school year ; 40 weeks 200 days. If the new law contemplates that the su pervisor of Orange county (or any oth er county) will visit every school in the county and acquaint himself with its progress, the legislature ought to have enacted that, "And the various supervisors shall be omnipresent." The ! work of the supervisor will therefore be j among the teachers and his labor t iih the people. In the last school year Orange county paid all its school su- j permtendents f4 0.o. me allow ance for the supervisor is double this a mount and his salary will be paid whether the new law is a success or not, and the Orange county inhabit ants will have it to pay.
