TUe.bova sat ort one sldo of the house and the girls on tho other. When we racltad wo had to march uji' In order and to'ftjismnrk.orrfttliern orackln the floor. Ho' haft Several kinds of puulsninentB suob aa a goofl Bound threshing with a good stout hlokOrrarWnd the'ahonldorB or lower limbs. For nilsBing throo words In spoiling we could take pur choice of the following punienmouts: i'o stand on the floor cm o hour with uglrrs.boSjiotand' boots'on, or stay -'in'at nqpu or ia'cess, o'r'ilt with tho girl voU hated, or three iloki aroiiud the shsuldors oii loy?6r limbs -well laid on. For tho girls jusli the tame except the wlilp'-' pirig. I prolerred'the wliippfng. II ho had not always made mo'slt with the girt i hated, I would not of cored so much for tliora Is always more^orj'ie'ss love-niaklrig InXschool, He would sorfefimes tnako the'boys haul off their coats aSd give It to thein'lu their shirt sleeves. "Al'te'r. giving a boy a sound threshing he aid noi|a8k'hlih If he'had hurt his' feennga and If he'had to bug his pai-don." 'lie' •was as strict with the' girls, but they worn iot as uaruly as the boys, and aid not have td'be punished so much. Forjall lie was so strict' In school out of school ho. wonld unite with us In our guinea and bo as one ot the boys. In'tho'spellinB oiasu he always gave .a ticket which was good for five mills, when we (had ten titkets he would 1 give 'ua' flya cents. All had a fair chance fOr when one got head he or she had to go t* the foot and' work their way up by spelling others down. We had one tell-tal* In school, a girl by the name of Jones and, ol course; the reat of the scholars did' hot love her' very much. : She 1 would tell on tli« smaller scholar's in school. She gare the 'teacher inuoh trouble In ! other wayB. In reading or spoiling she wbnld n6t read orspeU above n whisper. [The teacher tried, in valhV'to make her recite louder. At noon or reftess she'fetf'u'Wshbut as loud as any one. I have seen hiin got in ono corner of the house and hold his hand Over his "eats; he saidtokeep' ffom'being d^aienlBd. Scnool was always 1 called when a few scholars,arrived, for I dq'not think he bad a watch, he was.too poor to own one. i know he sent one of the boys out ono evening to see what;tlmo or howhlRB the sun-was'anfl" when he came baok'ho sold the'snn was about ten feet high. I remember once when he was going to whip the same boy ho begged for him not to whip him aronqd the logs. I remember of a large class In spelling having to 8tanu.on the floor all one noon because we could not pronounce Interpret, correctly; we would havo tho accent on tho last syllable. Fertlluandor Luken was the first to get It correct. I could giro many more incidents of early scBool days but think'' I have given enough to show how wo 'had to do in my eirlTlile. With a brief lilstory of the first teacher I will close. Oalvln Dreuuon, the first teacher, is It-ring In Woodburu, 111,, loved and respected by all. Henry Hart lon« since died. Jlllot w«s a Ohrlatlan Jinlnlster. what became of him I have no hlHtorr. Liscum, after teaching his first school, moved to Wisconsin, whore ho followed the occupation asiteacher all of hlgllfe. I visited bis school at ono time In Wisconsin and must •ay he was ono of tho very best of teachers. He hold the office oi State Superintendent in Wisconsin ono term, I believe. Ho diad a few years ago. Wi Si Pttlmor taught for many years In thin township and other places. When tho railroad was building through hero ho wont to Utohfiold and went Into the mercantile business. 1 understand he la living on a farm near Utohneld. haying plenty of this M orld's goods to do him in Ills old ago. As long as life lasts wlU I hold tho kindest memories of htm' who taught mo my first lesson. I of ten think he puuhikett' too when not ueeossari', bnt oil -uoaount if Bothers 1 would be punished also. ' I will giro the imtnosof some bf tho patrons ot the school at that' tliiie., There were 'five Prouitt families, Mlllur, with 14 children; the Williams family lived here thou—I am told there we're 17 boy* Un'd nirls -who Hvbd id the aue; of maturity—Kiliott, 'MoPlko, '.Tfndall, Hall,Lukon,Dorsey, Biultli, Fludloy.
