PI'ARENT AND TEA H E!. As there has been considerable gossip and some little excitement in our community of late concern lug the management of the school#, perhatps a few thoughts anndcr the above head will not be out of place. When the parent sends a child to school and places it under the control of the teacher, a quasi contract is atl once created iun.delei which the former agrees for the latter to control and discipline that child, and to cause it to con form to all the rules and regula tions necessary for the maintain ance and government ol the school. On the other hand the teacher agrees to see that the child corn plies with these req!lir'ements, and to treat it civilly and courteously. Now in order tihat the school be properly controlled and the need full results attained1, there should exist perfect confilence and a correct understanding between the parent and teacher. When any real or imaginary wrong has been committed by the teacher and communicated by the child, it is certainly very wrong for the parent.to begin to n Iphold the child and denounce the teacher, especial ly is this wrong when no investiga tion hiai been made and the teacher has not been heard to explain. As a ruleeach patron thinks he has the best a:rd most obedient child in selhiol. :nd it is hard for any of iri to believe that our child has misrepresented the facts or has been in .thle wrong. But in most cases, though not iii all, the child is in the wiong. and the teacher should be supported and upheldt kst the school prove a failure. We dlo not pretend to enter upon a general (defeinse for teachers, for't (hey somietiimecs do wrong as well as the pupils. In deedl "to err is human."" Biut when it really appears that a grievance has been done the child by the teacher then the proper course for the parent to pursue, is to go quictly and civilly to the teacIher and reason the nIa..cr with him. To abuse and denounce hiim lublicly and in thile presence of the li:ild is not oiily unmanly, hult it causes the dchtd and indeed the who!dschool, to lose respect for the telcher as well as encouraging disobeience. The fact is there are too many of us who are unwilling for our children to be madre to obey, we are not wilhing fur them to work. It matters no4 wlat teacher we get unless the parents uphold him and are willing for their children to be controlled the school will necessarily be a failure. We are inclined to the opinion that our people are equally as much, in fact more to blame than the teachers. TlTHE -EGROEfS LAMENTA TION'. Below we publish the prayers of two negro preachers, delivered at Chatanooga. where they had met to discuss the race question: "We know, Lord, when we have called on Thee Thou hast been with us. After twenty-five years God hath seen our people aa: we Iars Tbhee to guide us in the pres nt emergency. Thou Iast led us kud strengthpned us in times past, But new, 0 God, a power is tread Ing tU down, and woe pray Thee hat Thoi. wilt raise up helpers., |any of up are evcti worse than Swere before the, wai: Thou knowest our people have been mur ered and perished. Oh, wilt 'hon cOpquer for us~ for Thou.art e same Savior that Thou were tore. We hive been too low Undhare let this thing go until too m~ay of our pcbple have been tintrdered. But we leave it all in Thiy hands. We are so weak, but we want strength from Thee. We pray for our enemies, an~or those who oppreas aoS We pray that our ,people,may iswyer heweafter sen~anyone to Congress who rill sje~ t to oppress u~s. Lord Wlp L. 8. D. Sessione said: "We come to TIee witth bxed hadsi .md sorrowful he ts otoffr pry-" aeri a ;ngplieattio. Oh, Go the, oleuds gather. thl. are black ith ..sigi, o", .ron jie *hite cotir u ds f s tains hold up dumb lips of eu treaty. 0, God of eternal justice, what untold crimes are perpetrat ed against a weak, defenseless people. Yes, we know that Thirne eye hath seen and Thy hand will pity. Ihe works through human agencies, and sorrowful hearts to y1:I, c.ry out to Thee, We believe that question finds an answer in the letter of Win. E. Matthews to John M. Langston, urging him to take steps to form a league of col oredl Americans on this continett. Some of those who have been the most devoted to the interests of their race think the time is ripe for such an organization. Let us unite ourselves, that all may have the wisdom and advice of Qur best brains. that we may have the moral power of our best men. Such an union should give us strength and courage." Rer. G. D. Ogden, the most prominent negro preacher in this part of the South, delivered a tell ing speecli, in which he decried anything looking to a race con flict. lie said: "If the colored people in the South is to be anything, he must make something of himself, IIe must cease to be a parasito, and living of'others; andi when we do it, we will extort from our ene mies' prejudiced lips the highest praise." If the blackman, he added, had less to do with politics, and more to do with education and money, lie would lbe an independent race, and as good as any one else. THill "EAGLE EYE." This festive*bird snorts: not once, but twice: lie blates as only a dtlin ca:li' wuld under a fallen tree, with hi.s tongue lapped out about a yard gaslihg for breath. Under the caption, "washed u p an E liter,'' aund signed by "Web ster," a writer is the alhove nomed paper imagines that the ilitor of the aforesaid journalistec venture cannot do justice to us, and that ihe alone must represent the interests of the beautiful (?) city of Minden. lie attempts his task with a pile of almannes at his side and a few nickle libraries for lagniappe, and with a move on him like the editor ofthle Pekin Gazetto, (its in China) grinds out old worn out "yarns" andL tales on newspapers that every body, but this mutton-head ed correspondoet, knew yea:rs and years ago, anrl which have grown so stale that it iscustonmary for the audience to disperse and leave the tattle-tale in the lurch. We would not notice thle "Aunt Salhei Wiggins" aspirant for notoriety, were it not fitom the fact that webalted our hook nicely with the expectation of catching the Eagle-Eye. But with his usual quickness of the eye, hIe saw that he would be nipped in the bud, and gladly turned his sanctum over to the wind pipe, "Webster." This starved-out defender arises and opens up his sucker-shaped mouth and swallows hook, line and poll, and with a voice husky, reiterates what the Eagle-Eye said before that "Minden could pay more for cotton and sell goods cheaper" than IHomer, et als. Stand up "Webster," you old fossilized quill pusher, and re ceive your sentence: Granting for tte sake .or argument that Minden does pay j ets per pqund more for cotton than Homer, doni't yon know thit farmers -in this pari~ -have an eye to businesi afd: know that onejgarter oent is not enough o risk the :breakage. o' their wagons, the killing of, mule or ending their lives with derath from exposure to the damp atmos phere at nlghtcampipgg otit?

The next regular monthly meet ing of the North Louisiana Agri cultural society will be held in Agricultural Hall at the Experi ment Station, Thursday, Oct. 31st, inst. The question for discussion is as follows: Is not the use and manufacture of cotton bagging the cause of the entire south as well as that of larmers? The speakers are, I'. L. At,,,'d: Eist Felielana; L. 1t. Lay, Claiborne '. T.. t:ice. DeSoto; T. A. Clayton, New Or1 leans; Iaon. W. Ii. Jack, of Natchi toches. The question is one that concerns the whole people, and the station earnestly desires a full attendance, not only at this meeting; but also at all subsequent meetings. The building of Agricultural Hall, by the Station, gives to the farmers of North Louisiana, a splendid opportunity for their coming together, discussing and solving questions constantly com ing before them. This exchanging and interchanging of ideas in economic, intensive and diversifi ed farming can but be of inestima ble benefit to those availing them. selves of these meetings. Let it be remembered, ,rio, ihat the doors of the hall, will at all times, be opened, to any and all meetings of an agricultu ral nature. J. G. Lee, assistant l)irector.
