The Texas Federatian of Women'· Club» haa set apart the first and Mcond week· in March to be ob served throughout the state as Edu- . cational weeks. In compliance with the sngges tion of the President of Federation, the Waxahachie Shakespeare club voted to observe the first week in March. This is being done by vis iting the city public schools, not as critics, but as friends and co-work ers, and making a study of some of the topics sugested by the Federa tion. Topics with which every pa triotic cltisen should acquaint him or her self. In response to a call from the president, the club met Wednesday afternoon, March 4, for the discuss ion of these subjects. After the club was called to order Prof. W. L. Acker and County Superintend ent E. D. Criddie, who were present by invitation of me club, gave most interesting and instructive talks upon "The School Fund of Texas," "Condition of Local Schools," and "Bural Schools,""The New Move metis in Karal Schools" respect - i lvely. Mrs. 8. P. Skinner, chairman of I committee to visit schools, read re-1 port of committee, In which the j present management and progress) of city schools were highly com-1 mended, but the crowded, unaani-j tary condition of rooms greatly de plored. Mr·. W. L. Harding, a member of aauie committee, read an Interesting paper urging the cry ing need of m»re end better build- j inga. The result of the meeting wu 1 an awakened enthuaiaam on the part of membera, and the paaaing of a reaolulion to preaent a petition to the city council for uieaaurea which will afford relief to the preaent condition of affaira in the public arhoola. It la the «arueat wlah of the club that every mother, with children |n the public school, might aign this petition, but owing to the condition lof sidewalks and atreeta, thia wa« deemed im|>oaslble, au it waa decid ed to aend the petition aimply in the I name of the dob.

H> SES HT THE TEMPLE 9F JUSTICE Jury in the District Court Dis' missed for the Week, Practically no business of any im portance lias been transacted in the district court this week. On ac count of the continued rains and the (earful condition of the county roads it is almost impossible for witness es in the more important civil suits to get to Waxahachie. The jury for this week was called into court this morning and dismissed for the week. All cases set for this week were either passed over or continued until· next term of court. In the county court yesterday af ternoon a young mail named Woods, who was on trial on the cnarge of carrying a pistol, was found not guilty. . s Attachments' /ir all machines .->t Singer office, jptione 117-3. tf La gm>p* cough· yield quickly to il<e wonderful curative qualities of Foley's Honey and Tar.

Editor: I see in the Light β "Petition to the city conncil to order an elec tion to cee whether or not the city would float enough bonds to build ward academies of modern date and make, and to displace the Park building as an academy." It would take near *<0,000 or $40, 000 to build these several academies of modern date; it would take three or four times as many teachers as at present to run these schools; their salaries must come from some where, they cannot live on poetry, romance and air. We have a rail road debt of something near $40, 000, of which wo are reminded every year by our tax receipt. To place these schools on a modern basis, it would take in the neighborhood of $40,000 or 900,000, and together with the railroad debt would be to ask the city of Waxahachie to assume a debt of $<>0,000 or 170,(ιΪΛ, at least, and not a dollar in the city treas ury. Now in consideration of a fail ure of crops last year and the out look not bright for a crop this year, and the extreme scarcity of money circulating in the city, I think this petition ought to be indefinitely postponed; for when farmers fail to make crops, towns and cities fail to have money; for the reason that farming is the basis of all prosper ity. When it fails everything else fails. I am in favor of schools, but prudence, judgment, economy aud common sense ought to be the rul ing thought in the creation and maintenance of all schools. While] 1 favor schools, I equally oppose bankrupt towns or cities. I will offer a suggestion or a sub stitute, if rou please. Let an expert examine the Park school building, point out its deficiencies of safety, ι and its needs of accommodation for pupils, and cost of the same, then let an approximate estimate be made j of the cost to put every sidewalk for pvptv till nil which would aid every pedestrian also) in good shape, leading to this grand central building with its beau tiful 10 acre campus; then I will ad vocate for the city to assume bonds enough to consummate the ends of this suggestion or substitute; then you would have a building and side walks that would add beauty, at traction and splendor to any city, and a standing monument for the cause of education. City Fathers, this petition before you calls upon the tax payers of this city to confront a grave ques tion, viz : to assume a debt of thou sands of dollars, and not a cent of money to meet it.
