There are a grer.t many inquiries about
school teachers the.-,e days, and why they
are so scarce. Well all we can say is
the wages are so poor and the terms 4of
school so short ir, most districts that
other vocations offer better inducements
even the matrimonial market. So all
we can say is, school hoards raise yeur
wages and lengthen your terms of
school! Wyoming pavs forty and forty
five dollars for the same size schools
that Sioux county pays thirty dollars
for. Can you wonder at a scarcity of
teachers in this county when there is
such a difference in wages.

EVE IS DEFENDED
Editor Heck, of the Ilolton, (Kansas)
Recorder has this to say for Eve:
"Wni- Eve more to blame than Adam?
If wa are to credit th average pulpit
speaker she was. But was slic-? Wo
think not. On the contrary, tlcnk
Adam tliu more culpable. Why did not
the devil tackle Adan? I 'ertpiuly it was
not tiewtute he considered his armor in
vulnerable. His history from that day
dow n to the present proves not only that
he wits weak in yielding to temptation,
but inclined to meet the tempter at least
half way. When the devil desires re
cruits from the race of Adam's sons, all
he has to do is to set his trap and bait it
with a dime or a glass of whiskey or a
niece of calico and hu has his man. Thn
j why if man was such an easy proposition
did he tackle the woman' Simply for
the reason if h had templed and enptur

against him. SIh would have said to
i Adam, 'If you think more of satan than

THEEDUCATION OF BOYS.
A philosopher has sanl that true edu
cation for boys " is to teach them what
they ought to know w hen t hev are men."
What is it, they ought to konw, then?
First to be true, to be genuine. No
education is worth anything that does
not include this. A man had t-etter not
know now to real, he had better never
barn a letter in the alphabet and be true
and genuine in at.lention, in action, ra
ttier than beiOi; learned m all sciences
and language, to lie at the same time
false in heart and counterfeit in life. A
bovenll things teach them that truth is
more than riches, more than culture,
more than earthly power or position.
Second to y pure in thought, lui.
guage, 1 1 f pure in mind and body. An
impure man, voung or old, poisoning
the society where he lives with smutty
stories, and impure examples, is a moral
ulcer, who ought to be treated as the
lepeis of old. who were banished from
society and compelled to cry, "Unclean"
as a warning to save others from the
Third to be unselfish, to care for the
feelings and comforts of others; to
bo polite, to lie generous, noble and
manly. This will include a genuine
reverence for the aged and things sacred.
Fourth to le self reliant and self hele
ful, even from early childhood; to be in
dustrious always, aud self supporting at
the enr'.ist pros-rnge; teai h them that all
honest work is honorable, aud that an
idle, list less lile, dependent oil others, is
disgraceful. When a boy bus learned
these four things, when he has n ado tliese
nU iis ft part of his Ikmi.u, however young
h may he, however poor, however rich,
lie has learned some of the most import
ant things he ought to know when he lie-

You can make people believe about

no attention, but you will idly wonder

when goods in your line are wanted.
As ordinarily used such a phrase is
of little value, because It is not proper
