With the present shortage of In structors for the schools of Mercer county the question of aa adequate number of teachers for nest year has arisen. It is known that sev eral of the educators are giving up their position for more lucrative work. Only lt are taking exami nation tor certificates to teach. Upon investigation it was found that neftrly 10 per cent of the teachers of Mercer county have not fully qualified A Instructors but the school boards have been com pelled to employ tress instructors school. There is at present one school in the county closed be cause of the inability to secure a teacher. Mr. Piatt stated that it may be possible that next year more schools would be closed. As word of the tending resigna tion of several Instructors has been received, lt is seen why school teachers give up their positions. In a table compiled by the teachers' association, lt is showm- that in structors in commercial lines of the school, receiving 12,400 a year have left their position and taken work in accounting, at a salary of $5,00 a year. Home economic in structors left their position for re search work at a salary of $3,200.00 a year aa against the $1,800 they received in school. General edu cator left a $2,500 a year position to join the government workers for $3,000 a year. Many Instances or great increases prove the utility of trying to secure competent teachers at the present scale oi pay. Although no request tor addi tional pay has been made by Mercer county teachers, it is thought tnat such a step may be taken by the next school year. The decision of the Mercer county school board on such a question would necessarily be long considered. STUDENTS APPEAR IN MUSICAL FLAY TONIGHT AT HALL After weeks or preparation, the students of the Aledo high school, composing the Boys' and Girls' Glee clubs, will appear in the initial showing of "The Gypsy Rover." a musical comedy of high class. Good singers, the cast Is full of them. The gypsy dialect employed by the students in their songs is sure to please the audience. Gay ly dressed actors and actresses, all tend to go for a well spent evening. During their reheasals the students have shown an aptness far beyond their years, and those in charge of their training express great satis faction at their rendition of the songs. The operatta will be staged tonight and tomorrow night at the city hall auditorium. BOWLERS RETURN FROM A. B. C.

Aledo is by. no means the largest town in the j United States but it is one of the j few of her size who sent 10 men to i the great bowling contest Two 5 man teams from a city of th popu-1 lation of Aledo does great credit to j the community. Followers of the! sport' here are to be commended I for their foresight in entering the number from this city, who took part in the contest. Although no records were broken by the Aledo ans scores made by the aggregation are far from being the lowest in the tournament Larger teams with a wider reputation fell below Aledo's mark in various events.
