provisions relative to purchases

The new school book law cannot
affect a former contract with a pub
lishing company. The law pro
vides that the books and supplies
shall be owned by the district and
furnished the pupils free. The mat
ter of making a new contract rests
with your own judgement, but
since under the new law the dis

of the publisher, filed in this ollice
your district officers may deem it
best to make and sign a new con

Does the new school book law
obligate publishers who have filed
sworn statements of contract prices
and bonds to furnish their publica
tions at said prices to districts
which do not make contracts?
No. Districts which do uot make
contracts are not. entitled to con
tract prices, nor to the protection of
the publishers' bonds.
The above question has been sub

MY SAILOR LOVER.
RULES RELATING! TO THE NEW
SCHOOL BOOK LAW.
School boards should make pro
visions at the annual meeting for
carrying out its provisions by
levying tax sufficient to buy
new books. Of course, the new
law will not affect those districts
which have already supplied the
pupils with free text-books further
than to make it necessary for them
to know for their own protection
that school book publishers with
whom they may enter into contract
have complied with the require
ments of the law by filing in this
ollice sworn lists of prices and
The law is compulsory upon the
school districts of the state.
It is not (necessary for those dis
tricts whose books are satisfactory
to discard these books and to adopt
others; it will be wiser whenever the
books now in use are fairly satis
factory to retain them, and merely
to supplement the present supply
by the purchase of enough books
to meet preseut needs.
I do not understand that it is nec
essary in ompliauce with law for a
school district to enter into a for
mal contract with a publisher ex
cept incase of a wish of the board
to make a permanent arrangement
with a publisher for suppying Jthe
district for a specified time, as one,
two or more years. Forms of con
tract are in course of preparation
and will be Jfurntshad the districts
iu the course of the summer.
Certified copies of prices of books
will be supplied from this office as
publishers may avail themselves
of the privileges granted by this
law. June, 1851.

A pleasant game for an eveninc at

their neighbors, is called "Quotations."

Fighting a Fashionable Dressmaker.
In reference to obstinacy in dress
makers for carrying out ideas I had an
amusing experience. Mv sister's stav in
Paris was too short for my dressmaker
to undertake all she wanted made. For
the best things we went to a big dress
maker, whose importance lies in great
pretensions. Among the things ordered
there was one for which I wanted my
own way. The woman exclaimed: "But
that is not practical. You women have
ideas, but they can't be carried out."
"Well, if it cannot be carried out I will
be responsible for spoilt cloth if there be
any." I knew she opposed it because
the idea was not her own, and that it did
not go to swell the bill with yards of
lace, feathers, furs, passementerie, etc.
She consented at last; the dress was a
great success. A few weeks after I had
occasion to call on the dressmaker, and
what was my surprise to find several
dresses in the showroom with my idea
very practically carried out, and what
was my greater surprise, when the wom
an came in, to find she was wearing my
idea practically demonstrated on her
own back. Brooklyn Eagle.
What "CnoU Isaac" Wat Doing.
Tommy was sent off on an errand one
morning to a farm lying just on the edge
of the town, the owner of which was fa

The late Mine. Bartholdi was no ordi
nary iierson, and on her ninetieth birth
uay sue looicea so full of life and beamed
so with mental vigor and heartiness that
I wonder she did not live to a hundred.
She was left a widow early, and devoted
herself to the education of her sons and
me stewardship of their paternal prop
erties, which under her management
were increased to fortunes. Though io
wen enuoweu wun tne money making
faculty, she was a person of agenerow
ujupoemon ana given to hospitality.
In youth she was reputed the hand
somest girl in Alsace. As an old woman
she was more than handsome. The pure
outlines remained, and the fire of the
kindest, quickest and most lambent pair
eyes unaginanie was never niinrll
so long as life remained. The son must
have had her in his head, as he remem
bered her in her younger days, when he
was sketching the design of the statue
oi "Liberty Enlightening the World.'
It was her idea that Liberty should not
be en pate de guimauve, but of a grave
aim severe anpect. .Liberty was the best
of all conditions, she used to say, for
mono wuo were severe upon themselves,
aud the worst for the self indnlirent
One never saw a truce of self righteous
harshness in the old lady. She was very
iimuigeiii iowara me erring; but that
grace, nlie said, enne with the wide ex
perieuce of old age. It was a source of
enjoyment to her to drive to the Isle of
bwans, in the Seine, and look at the re
duced copy which was set tip there a few
years ago of the famous statue which
now stands at the entrance of New York
harbor. One of her sayings was, "Do
not repress badness; crowd it out with
good ideas." London Truth.
A I'aris Candle Story.
"Every traveler who stops at a Paris
lodging hon.se," laughed a woman the
other day, "has a candle story, and here
ia mine: We were served with two
candles every morning, which we never
half used up; these would be taken out,
however, and fresh ones appear in their
places. Knowing that we were being
charged for every candle we determined
at least to enjoy added illumination, and
my husband looked around for a place to
hide them during the daily doing up of
the apartment. On the top shelf of a
cabinet arrangement in a corner stood a
largo Japanese vase, wide and deep. Up
to this Mr. climbed, to discover that
we had been forestalled, for in its capa
cious hollow we found seventeen can
dles, every one burned down perhaps an
"Some former lodger had resented
the candle swindle like ourselves, and
had put his daily allowance where it
would do the proprietor no good. That
night a brilliant illumination of nineteen
caudles, each set in its own grease on
the marble top table, gave us something
like light. During our stay we hid and
accumulated candles, so that we had
always enough to read by, and when we
left we deposited our overstock in the
vase for the benefit of some searchinir

The Rellgloni of China.
The three great religions of China are
Confucianism, Buddhism and Taonism
The bulk of the people are Buddhists
rather than Confucianists, and there are
millions of infidels. The tomb of Con.
fuciu8 is at Mecca, for many of the Chi
nese, and they make pilKriuiatros to it.
Confucianism is more a philosophy than
a religion, it contains many of the beau
ties which we suppose to be exclusively
the properties of Christianity. The
golden rule in a negative form was an
nunciated by Confucius, and as a system
of morality it is beautiful. The Taousts
have more superstitions than the Con
fucianists. They began about the same
time as Confucius, their preacher being
Tho state religion, in connection with
which all these religions come in, is the
worship or the emperor, who is the son
of heaven and the prophet, priest and
king of the people, lie worships for
mem in the temples at Pekin. When
the great Temple of Heaven was burned
down a shudder ran down the 300,000,000
spines of the great Chinese nation. It was
thought that this was a warning from
heaven that the emperor should be de
posed. Frank Q. Carpenter in National
Ilegclng I.etten from London.
"Ever since I was abroad." said a well
known New Yorker, "I have been pes

They are mostly from the managers of
fcngusli charitable institutions of vari

private individuals. The former inclose
a variety of printed matter illustrating
the purposes and work of the institution.
The latter are abject appeals of appar
ently professional begging letter writers,
with which London abounds. I was
talking with a friend about Hand he
said he had the same experience for
abont two years after he had built a fine
house here, a description of which and
his wealth got into the local papers. He
was deluged with begging letters from
almost every capital in Europe and es
pecially from London.
"Ttf.'se people are the worst and most
persistent beggars in the world. Fancy
an American mailing begging letters to
Londoners! I suppose there must be
money in it or they wouldn't do it."
