SCHOOLS AND TEACHERS MI ST
We have schools for the public good

The public, school would do more
g( od if all the people wuuld properly
contribute to it- We pay the bills to
maintain ft, and there most of uh
stop. We fail to put » ur energies to
v.ard making ii function according to
our ideals. We want perfect attend
ance, perfect lessgns, and perfect de
portment, yet' we do not kelp to get
them. We keep the pupils out of
m hool frequently for the most trivial
ci.uses. We scold and refuse to help
t'um when they need help and en- 1

lessons. We set them bad examples
ii. deportment We rave against taxes
that support-, trustee-that organize,
the machinery, teachers that lead
themj and' then against the child it
self because it fails.
After looking the field over, the
school does well with the average
i hild when you look and listen to the
-,' - "rug" and , mother, whose
■luty.it' is to help in every way to!
Tnake the entiresystem a success.
We need not expect a' perfect school
without the ; universal support of all
tin people whom it serves. We may
us well expect a steam engine to work
without fuel as to expect a schoii to
pru|n;rly. function without the support
i the citizens around it.

The glemof prosperity which we

first, there are a certain class of
farmers who think a "country buyer"
ii, a man with a large quantity of
money and very little brains who~ is
calling around to pay more for their
crop than it is worth, and in addition
to losing actual cash money is willing
and able to go to much trouble in
hauling and grading and selling their
tobacco for them. Some people say
that all such fanners should be placed
in an insane asylum.
Then we find a class of folks who
think they have sense enough to out
trade a royal Jew, and when one of
