Si'iUNQFiEi.0, III.. April V8.-Tho Railroad and Warehouse Commissioners today considered tlu> petition of oiltzuns of Alton, asking that it request tho Chicago and Alton railroad to run all its pausonger trams through that city instead of having part of them pass by tlio cut-off. The Commissioners lirul that five passenger trains of this road rim south and four north, daily, and therefore decide that the passongcr facilities are amplo an'd deny tho prayer of tho petitioners. Head between tbo linos this decision moans that if tho C. & A. road continues to run its fant Kansas City trains over tho "out off" it will bo obliged to erect a depot at Upper Alton uuil atop its trains there for tho bonolit of puaeun- gors. I propose to cob nek fifty years and give some events that happened In tho early settlement ot this township. Just think, fifty years ago and tho many changes that hare taken place since; particularly In tho way school* wero taught then. In comparison to tho schools taught now. 1 will go bank to the year 1838, two years before my birth, and state that from the old settlers I have learned that the fltet school In this township was taaght tn a log hut built by Alex. Miller for tlio benefit of his own children; that waa In 1835. Tho school was taught by Oalrln Drcunnn. In the year 1838 the first public school house was built on land owned by Isaac Freuitt, now owned by A. L. Eorubaok. The building was an old log house bought of Hobort Tlndull who lived at that time where Charles Krinard now lives. The description and dimensions of said school houie were about as follows, to tho best of my recollection. It was of round logs about 18z20 with a six foot chimney in tho west end, composed of logs, sticks and mud. The floor was of rough oak boatdi, procured from Foster's water saw mill, that stood where the Iron bridge now stands on tho Bunker Bill and Alton road. There was only one door. In the south side of the buIldlnK,.mado of clap boards. For light wo had a short space cut out on the north side and cast end, about throe lights 6x6 in each space, which did not afford muchllKht. Tho desks were made of rough oak boards and occupied tho west ond and north side next to the wall. The seats wero made of slabs with wooden plni in the ends for legs, without backs. Thereof was made of clap boards laid on loose and fastened by laying ridge poles on top and pinned to hold them to their places. The celling was also o£ rouch oak boards which were placed on the joints which wore of round poles. 1 have given in brief tho dimensions of tho first school house built in iioro township. The object of ;bulldlng it In the timber was to bo handy to the hickorys, for the teachers In those days did not spare the rod II my recollection serves me right. Tho lirst school taught in tho above de* scribed mansion was taught by Calvin Drennan, at $8 per month, boardedjuround. Ilenrv Ilart, Jlllct Llsouiu than W. S. Palmer. Palmer being the first teacher I went to I propose to give a brief history ol his teaching and rules, &c., as ho had a way of impressing things ouonernindwhlcnl -will never lor- got. Palmar was a student of Shurtleff College having worked for Win. GUI to earn money to go to college, lie taught for $12 n month and boarded around as was the custom I do not remember whether Mr. Puluier had a certificate or not. 1 remembor, yours afterwards ore teacher had a certificate quallfy > - ing her to teach as far us fractions; that is tho way It road. Whether Mr. Palmer had a certificate or not, I can truly say he waa tho best teacher I over went to. His rules are fresh In my mind to-day and I propose to give somo of them which wero laid down the first day of school and had to ba strictly obeyed until the last day of school: 1. Scholars had to bo on the school ground before eight o'clock, unless kept at homo by their parents, then they had to give a strict account. 2. WTilsporing was positively prohibited. 3. No swearing or profane language on the school ground or on tho road to or from school. 4. Scholars wore not allowtid to stop at We FEEL andfENOW we are offering an assortment of ;.
