Hint to Teachers
In one of his evening talks last
weelcProf Pinkerton said that to be
successful a teacher should keep post
ed This refers not only to national
affairs but to state county and pre
cinct happenings In our own sphere
we are as important as kings and
queens arein theirs Sometimes it is
more important that you should be
able to discuss local affairs than that
you be prepared to talk of the latest
developments in Armenia or the Sou
dan The D enocii at is the best
newspaper and is the only democratic
paper in the Northwest Its county
correspondence department is unexcel
led The subscription price is only 1

Siun tlic Petition
The adjourned meeting- of the
voters of school district No 1 was
held last night at Cornell Hall Very
few of those interested were present
President Walcott called the meeting
ordef and in the absence of Secretary
Pettijohn Robert Good was appointed
to record the doings of the meeting
After considerablediscussion of the
object for which the meeting was call
ed a motion wasoarrledHb the effect
that a committtee of three be appoint
ed to draw up and circulate a petition
praying the school board to call a
special meeting for the purpose of
voting on a proposition to issue bonds
to the amount of 10000 for the pur
pose of building a new schoool house
It was stipulated that the petition
should state that the school bowse
should be built of native stone or
brick and that the bonds should be
made to bear six per cent interest tor
twenty years with the option that
they could be paid in ten years
W S Darker J H Yeast and W E
Haley were appointed as suqh commit
tee andthe petitions will be prepared
andcirciiUited at dnce One copy of
same will be found at the postofiice
Now is the tirife for the people of
Valentine to show their loye of and
regard for the proper education of
their children A poor school building
is a naisance and should not be toler
ated The present building is more
than jioor It is abominable Some
Object to the location of the building
as decided upon in our last meeting
but location is one of minor considera
tion when ii comes to a school house
Lay aside your prejudice and all work
fot the improvement It is a necessity
and its completion should not be de
layed This paper thinks the people
of Valentine are too broad minded to
allow the- question of location to de
feat the bond project Prove td the
world the correctness xst
