Reqatred for First avnd
County Superintendent McManua Is In
receipt of a number of new regulations
governing the uniform examination of
teachera for county certificates which have
Just been lasued by State Superintendent
Barrett. Heretofore . the county superin
tendent made these regulations, but by a
recent opinion of the attorney general It
held that the code gives the atate su
perintendent of public Instruction the au
thority to prescribe the conditions under
which county superintendents shall Issue
certificates, and that It Is also In the power
of the state superintendent to specify the
minimum age of applicants to whom cer-
i tlflcatee may be Issued by the county eu-
- .i, kw vi. .. v.
In conformity with this opinion of the
uoruej general siate Buptnnitnotni or-
rett has Just put Into effect regulations for
uniform examinations for teachers' cer
tificates. These require, In the flrst place,
that such certificates shall be of three
grades first, aecond and third. A special
certificate and a kindergarten certificate
are also authorized to be Issued as for
merly. The first grade certificate Is to be Issued
for a term. of two years, and all appli
cant! must lubmlt proof of thlrty-elx
weeks' successful experience In teaching.
Second grade certificates are not to be Is
sued for a term to exceed one year. In
counties where three grades are recog
nlied the applicant for a aecond grade
certificate may be required to give evi-.
dence of at least three months' successful
experience In teaching. Third grade cer
tificates may be limited at the discretion
of the county superintendent to one or
two terms. Special and kindergarten cer
tificates may not be issued for a term to
exceed one year.
The regulations provide that the exami
nation iball be held In the office of the
county auperlntendent on the lait Friday
and Saturday In each month. Special ex
aminations, however, may be held at the
discretion of ths county .superintendent
elsewhere. Applications made at Irregular
times must be rejected unless the appli
cant Is able to give good reasons for not
ettendisg ths regular examinations.
Th state sunerlntendent has decided
that all 'applicants for teachers' certifi
cates must be at least 18 yean of age
must present such evidences of good moral

of criminal cases, Including the fees of the

lected. This annual statement, which In

nomination papers for J. D. C. McFar
land cf Des Moines, as prohibitionist candi
date for congress In the Seventh district
against Captnlu Hull, were filed with the
secretary of state today and accepted. Un
less someone questions the regularity of
the nomination the name will go on the
official ballots. There Is some doubt as to
whether the certificates would bear Inves
tigation. The convention was held out
side the district and the nomination made
at Waterloo at the time the state conven
tion and by the delegates to the stats con
vention. This was dons with all the pro
hibition nominees for congress. The usual
custom of . having separate conventions
was done away with and the delegates to
ths state convention held the eleven dis
trict conventions. But the prohibition
committees In filing the McFarland papers
certified that the call for the convention
Included nomination of candidates for con
gress and that the delegates were selected
with that In view as well as te nominate a
state ticket.- The papers being In legal
form have been accepted and their cor

for this reason be reviewed, by the atate

distressing bearing-down feeling, backache, her nerves are all gone, don't car
to move and waata only to be left alone.

Veg-etabl Compound will aurely reach the cause of all thla trouble and
