WANTED'- TEACHERS. Yesterday Young Texas of the Cameron County family, with well, irrubbed face and nicely combed fiair, took his ball, his bat, his Xnife, his assortment of string, his chewing-gum, his dinner pail and his primer, and started for school. He also took with Him a cheerful disposition to imbibe whatever in struction the teacher might be able i violation thereof. Scores Vagrants Urges Citizens Not to Evade Responsibility for Sel fish Reasons Should Do Full Duty. The district court convened this morning at nine o'clock, the first I matter to be taken up being the im- paneling of the grand ju,.y, the two j jurors needed to complete the panel j being secured from the special venire j summoned for that purpose. mei grand jury for the term is as fol-: lows: Aaron Turk, foreman; Mi-i guel Fernandez, A. Wayne Wood, ! Ilenny Krausse, Joe Kowalski, Chas. Champion, A. M. Deyo, J. C. Ben nett, Walter Shannon, Benjamin Ko walski and Santos Valdez. Victor Fernandez and James Conner were sworn in as foot bailiffs to the grand jury. The following is part of the eharge delivered to the grand jury this morning by Judge W. B Hopkins, after which they retired to the grand jury room: Gentlemen of the Grand Jury: Except to call your attention gen erally to the law regulating dis orderly houses, that regulating elec tions, that relating to Confederate , ...

Young Texas is sorry for the youth of a former day; who were expected, yes, even compelled, to .spell hard words; to thoroughly as similate the multiplication table; to pom over "map questions" till each state and country was something more than a mere jumble of colors. And the Young Texan of that day pever dreamed of demanding a new form of entertainment the moment his task was finished. No, he took his slate his unsanitary slate and after he had washed it in his unsanitary way, he proceeded to make his perspectiveless pictures. Old Texas hhs a carefully concealed idea that those days were the best, after all. But Young Texas has long since irrhed at the schoolhouse. What? Door closed? "'School will not open; no teacher." In many Cameron County districts poor Little Texas is encountering a "lockout." What is the matter? Why are there not teachers enough?. We read the other day that out of- twenty-three- who flnjflHk&Ai'on for a state cer. tiHH! only four 'passeJ., Some- tuing wrong there, surely. WaSvthe examination a fair one, or were the questions of that dreaded variety inown as "catch questions"? If the examination was what it should be, were the tepchers ill prepared? If a Texas certificate is all but impos sible to obtain it would seem best to make a change of some kind. The Herald does not profess to know just what should be done, but to the -amnion mind half a loaf is better than no bread. Those nineteen re jected candidates might kindle the torch of learning in as many schools now condemned to darkness. Or ff the torch is beyond them, an un pretending taper would be better than nothing. The "three R's" are humble, but they serve a useful purpose. Poor Little Texas! shin is crving out for help and lihor of all kin4s, this'- class should be wiped out of existence ter nvtny other reascus too numerous to nm. tion.

AIL law-abiding people should be willing, to obey and enforce the laws of the land. The Baskin-JIcGregor liquor law was prepared and drawn up for, and at the instigation of tlie- liquor men of the State, and passed at theio-solicitation; then why should they not be willing to abide by "ti?? The: law does no. decent aealer -Any injusrjr-e. No man who violates it day and night, who sells cheap compound 4 Honors, who sells to drunkards and Kflfciths, has any rignts that any lawlvht to respect, and it masters not how he is put or kept out o' business, hecause he is the foe of the body politic and social. So fans as the sale of liquor is, authorize. . and men obey the law. they shsnl.i be dealt with fairljV. The retstrk tions thrown around hfta. bus'mes by the new law are best for" the sel. ler and for the people. The decent dealer does not have to work all day Sunday because the darfe alley vio lator of the law will not close, 'uie law is wise and just, and yet w-see it cast to the winds, because, for sooth, a few saloon men. defy itt and rely on its nnpopularrSy to evpie it. Maybe Mr. Edwards expects Urawnsville to awake from its leth argy, and pour 100.000 ducats more into his coffers to make the road come here instead of to that-contiguous point. Isn't it somewhat strange that Dr. Cook should have promised, to first submit his records of reaching the pole to a foreign .power? The least spark of patriotism should forbid such a pledge.
