This patent truth has been forcihlv

ucation. This is a most generous nicas
tire, wise and state-manlike in its
leaches, as it will ere long provide first
class teachers, trained in approved nor
mal methods, fur the colored schools.
Again, Gov. Itatc, in his message to
the Legislature, recommended that an
assistant State Superintendent, who
might be a properly qualified colored
man, should be appointed to attend to
the colored schools exclusively, to be
under the direction and control of the
State Superintendent Acting upon
this suggestion a bill was prepared by
the House Committee on Education,
which upon final vote was supported al
most unanimously by Democratic mem
bers, but was defeated by the Republicans.

Colored teachers are employed gen

partially qualified, a a rule, for their
work. The Stale Superintendent'slime
is almost exclusively taken uji with vis

much to tho colored schools, or to mix
with and instruct their teachers.
It was thought that a colored nmn
acting under the State Superintendent
could liest tierform tho task, ami that
the same being the fish which Slut ter
and Tucker thought was a trout. No,
gentlemen, it was not a trout, a you
thoiiirbt. but a cat.
I he editor goes on lurtlier with the
roofs iu regard to the truthfulness of
us statement, lie says, "We all know
that there is no trout iu all this country
of streams that weighs over 4 pound "
1 crimp this is the best information that
he or Tucker Iiiih ever been able to
gather, for I am satisfied that with all
their skill a fishermen they never
caught one that weighed as much as 2
isiunds ISotliwiihstaiiding all tins, 1
don't think that Slatter nnd Tucker
have any right to call Durham by such
hard names, just la-cause they happen
ed not to know a cat from a trout, and
because Durham was more successful in
hi attempts than was Mr House (if
Stutter's statement in regard to House
lie true). I say that they have no right
to call him an old "Cum grano salis"
simply because lie taught a larger (ish
than they ever caught, und that too
without the use of dvuamite. JSow, il
House actually used 'dynamite, and did
as much iaiun''c as Matter savs tie tid,
he would be justifiable iu calling him
"Cum grauo salis."
ISow, Mr. hlatter, wo want you to
explain to us what Ibis Latin, French,
ierinau Italian, or whatever it is, phrase
means. We are Durham s friend, and
don't like for him to he called by such
names. It may be possible that you
can fix this thing up wiih Abe Durham
by giving him the significance id this
term, l erhaps it is not so bad as Abe
and his friends think.

Congressman Warner, of Tennessee,

Congressman Warner' snore is a fine,

in its sweetest places tutu a delicious
snort, it pursues its avocation in a
hum-drum sort of a way when Mr.
Warner is ensconced in the privacy of

snore saw that it was iu distinguished
company, and it hunicd itself for the
irreatest effort of its life. It soared up

notes, mil then it wailed like the (lute

and the Members forgot themselves un
der the witching influence of its melody.
The snore noticed this nnd redoubled its
elforts, and, as it increased In volume,
it caught the .Speakers ear. Mr. heifer

"lhc gentleman from leimcssce is
out of order, and to be recognized he
must oner his resolution to adjourn
while standing."
Congressman Dibrell. one of Mr.

tion, shook the snoring statcsmau and
said :

terrible confusion, and Keifer thinks

"What?" ejaculated Mr. Warner,
rubbing his eyes. " Why. I was onlv
