The schools of our county should
be our pride, and to give them the
power and influence they should
have, we must give them local sup
port, as that brings the school
hnnv m the people of a community
and increases their interest in them
as nothing else can. Those states
and counties have the best schools
which have the fullest and freest
local support. That state or com
munity enjoys the best govern
ment which most freely taxes itself
for the support of its public schools.
To establish and maintain schools
for the fullest and best education
of all our children is the only per
manent cure for the disease of pov
erty. It has been shown beyond a
doubt that the productive power of
ajteople is always in direct ratio to
the quantity and quality of its edu
cation. It is then our first duty to
our children to fit them for all that
is best in life. It is said that we
are too poor to educate our chil
dren. We reply that the way to
get rich is to educate our people,
so they may be able to apply laboi
successfully to the development of
our many resources. Ignorance is
slavery of some kind, no matter
where it is found. Then to get rid
of this slavery and lessen crime the
people should be educated Our
public schools should be our very
best schools as far as they go, for
the great majority of our people
must for ever look to them for the
preparation of their children foi
citizenship and for success in life.
The public'schoolfe are to lay the
foundation of our future welfare,
therefore we mutt give them IOCHI

Should Women Marry Drinking Men
The woman who stoops down nrn
helps a uiau out of the gutter, aui
endeavors to make a sobtr and c!-at
man of him, is to be comniendei
for her kindness, but the womai
who marries a man addicted ti
drink, with a view of reformini
him, is to be pitied for the want o
better judgement. In not one cast
out of a hundred has a pure wifi
been able to reform a drunken hu?
Marrying a man addicted to th
nse of liquors is about like put
chasing a house on fiie, with ti
fire department in reach. A wotna
would far better go to the grave i
poverty, a respected maiden lad\
than be pointed out as a drunkard
wife. A maiden lady does ha\
chance in this world, but what ai
the opportunities of the wife of »
man who frequents the saloons ?
Love is strong, but a womni
should be strong enough not t
permit her love for weak man t
get the better of her judgemen:
Marriage is honorable, aud it is t>
desired, but a woman would b»t
ter seek her own wtfy of gettiin
through this world in single bits
aedneas than to be tied to a mar
who loves the wine cup.
We would like to see the men
saved from tha drunkand's grave,
and we would like to see th: women
save them, but the world cannot
afford to have her women dragged
to the the level of drunkards"
wives in endeavoring to save men
who have uo respect for themselves
or anybody else. If men will per
sist in the use of liquor, let them
get along without wives.—Gospel
