More Text Book Talk
By way of explanation in part
and to more fully express myself
upon our trouble in securing our
State adopted text books I pre
sent another letter upon this sub
The impression upon the minds
of some that another letter pub
lished a few weeks ago was an
attack on our local dealers or
agents js a wrong idea The
different dealers referred to
heretofore were only mentioned
iftt connection with letters re
ceived from our various book
concerns in which our local deal
ers were mentioned either as
agents or dealers who handled
our adopted books and in the
nominal mention of these dealers
we tried to distinguish clearly the
agent from the mere dealer
If a book dealer does not desire
to take an agency for a publishing
house for a special book or books
we have no objections but when
the public pays its officials to es
tablish a system of text books
and they transact their part as
best they can by selecting the
proper books and after they have
awarded publishing houses con
tracts to furnish books which to
them is a channell of wealth and
then when these companies after
contractsu rc closed fail to supply
the people with books Is when
the people begin to complain
It was a slack piece of legisla
tion that left it optionary with
the companies as to when to have
the books on the market Why
have we failed in so many instan
ccs to secure our books Failure
upon the part of companies to get
the book on the market answers
the question

here were so many complaints
made as having failed to make
the exchange of the old for the
new book From the fact that
them was no authorized agent es
tablished in Palestine
The old law imposed a heavy
fine upon teachers using any but
the adopted book Had or if
such a law existed or exists many
of the teachers would have been
delayed from four to six weeks in
beginning their schools and by
using the old ones for a short
time wo managed to tide the difiir
cult while many children were
compelled to lose from four to
eight weeks for the want of books
The companies will suffer less
than the public by the delay for
behind them stands the great
State of Texas waiting for the
books which none but them can
furnish The company loses the
use of the price of the book for
two months while the little pupil
the future bulwark of our State
loses the two months of intelleo
tual training for a generation
Should not such u > administra
tion of justice be sufficient to
invalidate a contract of such
gravity as that upon which our
textbobk is based
It1 is imperative on our part to
tolerate such a iState of affairs no

more about them There was a
party went from here and they
tell some strange stories as to
what they saw The people in the
cnterior are much behind those
along the coast There arc a
great many ducks deer and other
game out in the mountains

came up a great storm and they
went into the house of a Filipino
