The Adjourned Meeting
The adjourned meeting of the
hoard of education for school dis
trict No. I w as held at the office of
the director last Tuesday evening.
A- we stated last week the object
of the meeting was to talk over the
advisability and practicability of
hiring another teacher and institut
ing another room. By special in
vitation from the director the teach
ers were all present and took a
part in the discussion with good
The repoit that the rooms were
crowded so that, in several cases
three pupils were compelled to oc
cupy one seat, seemed more to be
due to a lack of seats than from an
overcrowded condition of the ioom.->;
in fact it developed that the average
attendance was not so large as that
of last year. Another thing that
somewhat interfered with the teach
ers’ work was a recent change in
the text bonks and a lack of some
books needed by reason of these
changes. .Just who is to blame for
these books not being supplied is
hard to determine. Certainly it is
not the patrons for they have paid
taxes until there ' is now nearly
♦2,000. available with which to
pay teachers, director and janitor
and to furnish ail needed supplies.
Again we cannot blame the board
as a whole for the. director has, time
and time ag. n, been instructed to
furnish all needed supplies. And
the director says that lie has told
the principal and teachers to make
out a list of supplies needed. The
principal says that when the teach
ers speak of the need of certain
books lie tells them to go to the di
rector with a list, and for some
reason they don't go. The teacher’s
did not say so nut we conclude that
they must think, as we do, that as |
the principal is at the head of the
schools it is his duty to take a list
of needed supplies to the director.
At any rate there seems to be
no one to bring these matters prop
erly before the board.
'l’he teacheis seemed to be
deeply interested. They convinced
the boa.d that they were putting
forth every effort to give satisfaction
and obtain good results. The meet
ing was a profitable one. The
needed beoks and seats will be fur
nished as quickly as possible and
we predict that the school will be
going on in tine woiking order.
1 lie board, after long and earn
est d'scnssion, passed a resolution
“excluding all scholars from the
school who have not taken up the
first grade work, for the rest of the
present school year.”
1’arems should not mistake the
meaning of this resolution. It
means that if you have a little child
which iias never went to school
you should not begin to send it
right in the middle of the term or
at any other time after the classes
are started L: the year’s work. Last
year and thus far this year they
have been starting at any and all
times. Now the primary school
teacher cannot do justice to her al
ready large classes which a re some
what advanced, and at the same
time give the required attention
to these little tots. Neither can she
put them in an advance class.
So wait until the begin ling of
the school year before you start
any more of your little folks who
may become of age dining the
present year. They cannot get the
attention you may think they ought
to have.

Roosevelt on Graft
“No crime calls for sterner repro
I bation than the crime of the corrup
tionists in public life, and of the
man who seeks to corrupt him. The
bribe giver and the bribe taker are
equally guilty. Both alike sin
against tin* primary law of the
state’s safety. All questions of
difference in party policy sink to
insignificance when the people of
this country are brought face to
face with a question like this, whic h
lies at the root, of honest and decent
government. On this question, and
on all others like it, we can afford
to have no division among good
citizens. In the last resort, ge«*d
laws and good administration
alike must rest upon the broad ba
sis of sound public opinion. A dull
public conscience, an easy-going ac
quiesenee in corruption, infallibly
means debasement m public life,
and such debasement in the end
means the ruin of free institutions.
Self government becomes a farce if
the representatives of the people
corrupt others or are themselves
corrupted. Freedom is not a gift
which will tarry long in the hands
of the dishonest or of those so
foolish or so incompetent as to tol
erate dishonesty in their public ser
vants.”— President Roosevelt.
Mr. and Mrs. C. .1 Tracy gave a
social party to a number of friends last
Friday night and a very enjoyable
time is reported. Present: Mr. and Mrs.
Hover, Mrs. Jones. Mr. and Mrs. Made
ly, L. S. Smith, Misses ITayhurst,
Hawk. Henry, Leininger. Minshull.
and Smith also E. E. Tracy and wife.
A pleasant hour was spent in guess
ing conundrums and Miss Minshull has
the credit of guessing the largest num
ber. Then slips on which were written
the menu in printer’s pi fashion, were
passed around, and the elegant supper
was served as soon as the guests had
made out the menu. After supper slips
were passed on which were written
questions pertaining to the next Sun
day lesson. Some time was spent in
discussing the most important points
in the lesson. After a song and prayer
the guests took their departure bearing
with them memories of a most delight
ful evening. Miss Eva Clinton assisted
Mr. and Mrs Tracy to entertain the
guests and the verdict of is that they
are a trio of splendid entertainers.

medy and took about three doses of
the medicine. To my great relief rite
