The RELIABLE and PROGRESSIVE Educational Jnstituion of the City and of Michigan. (CHARTERED AND INCORPORATED.) Corner Jefferson-ave. and Washin.'ton-st., - - Grand Rapids, Mick IVe will only call your attention to the MUSIC DE PARTMENT this week. Other departments next week. GRAND RAPIDS people are unwilling to always submit to methods not the latest and best along musical lines. Do not be antiquated, but conform to the nes and best idea by getting your musica? education at the CONSERVATORY for the same reason that you would expect to get a literal education at some good college or university. The advantages music students should have can only be obtained by conservatory methods. This istruc and needs no argument. None but the very best instructors employed. Prices to suit. Languages. Harmony and theory free. ( V. IE. YEREX, Zieiclciit. 15. JE&. IE. OTlTPlErTriElR, IMrectoi.

The Supreme court has, in an opinion tiled in th.case ofClarsnca K. Cleveland, relator, vs. EUwin M. Avery, aasesor of scbuoldis trict No. S of the township of Tekon- sha. very clearly defined tn power of district school board in the eniploj xaeatof teachers. In this cje relator wai a school teacher, and on Aug. 31, 1801, entered into a written contract with Samuel V. Zanders, I. 11. Doyle and the rvspou ' dent, then constituting the dutrict Uard, to teach the school in said dis trict, commencing on St pi. 7, during the term to be rated by th? district at iu annual rueet;ug. Subs quently au order was Uaued by Mr. Diye as mod. erator, and Mr. Sanders, as director, drew upon the respondent, as assessor, for the payment to relator of a sum for wages. Payment was dclined, and the relator petitions for a writ of man danius compelling this action. The grounds for refusal ars: 1. That the contract with the relator wtf made with the old board, and they had no authority to contract for the year, alter tne term of two of the board would expire. 2. That at the annual election held Jn September, one W. T. Chapman was elected director, and one W. B. Dur ham moderator; that they duly quali 'fied, and therefore Saunders and Doyle were not members of the board and had no authority to act. The court says: "The difficulty in securing competent teachers if school boards were obhed to wait until the annual meeting in beptember is appar at. In this case the relator had taught in this school for two years and could not wait for the annual meetmc, bar ing other appointments o tiered. There is usuaily no shanze in the majority of the board, as only officer is elected annually. The term of Saunders expired by limitation, and Doyle bad been ap pointed to fill a vacancy. The ques tion would hardly arise, except under circumstances like the present. It was decided in Tanpan ts. School District, 41 Michigan, SoO, that the trustees of graded public schools can make bind ing contracts for teaching before the year opens. The reosouing in that cane applies with equal force to the present one. The power to employ , teachers is co-extensive." In closing the the court says: "The old board therefore had the power to make the contract for the ensuing year, as should be voted at the animal meeting." i Futin has an egg famine.

India has had one real poetess, a young' girl, called familiarly Toru Dutt, who had the exceptional advantage of a thorough education. She and her slater Aru not, only shared their brother's English les&ons, j while living in Calcutta, but were given the benefit of travel and extended iostruo tion in Fracoe and England. On their re turn to India Toru at .ice began writln for publication, aad so skillful was her use of the English language, that it became a general belief that her work was that of some English writer who had chosea to adopt an Indian pseudonym." ,1 ' - In 1370, wben she was twenty years eld. Mr. Edmund Go&e was .reviewing books for an .English newspaper, and It Is bis ao cour.tof a certain visit paid at the edi torial office, in the "dead season" of the year, that he spent In npbraidlog the whole body of publishers for issuing ao books worth reviewing. . "At that moment. he says, "the pose man brought in a thin, fallow packet, with a wonderful ludlan postmark on it, and containing a most unattractive oraage pamphlet of vr( eutitled, 'A Sheaf Oieaned la French FieUs. ; "This shabby little book seemed speedily destlnod to fin J it. way into the waste pa per basket, but the editor thrust it int. my unwiliinft hands, and said: "There, see whether you can make something of that.' "A hopeless vol a me it seemed, with its queer outside and queerer type, bat when at but I took It ont ef my p icket, what was my surprise and almost rapture to open upon real poetry!" Toru's acquaintance wtth French and English literature was something remark able, and bar translations were full of grace and spirit. Both she aud her sister found time for a great amount of serious study, but they were also enthnsiastle novel readers. Toru Dutt was but twenty-one wben she died, and yet she Uft bsbiod her not only original poems aud tranAlstions, but the manuscript of a French novel which, asald all It. lreperfcotious, still shows rtsaarke ble promise.
