UNITED FOR PARTY SUCCESS. The ItiipuWk-an party lakes pride in sfort'st of adherents who would serve tho county with credit'. It is natural that tlie triumph of Repnblieanisin shO'iiliI bring tliem to.Tlie front. They have worthy aspirations, and their Mends, recogni/.lng tlieTr nbtllty, urge the.ir claims. They are all, however, too duotiJy (.-oiKwuctl for tiie future success of Uie party in county. State and Xation ti> liold.personal ambiti-ou or per- sioual preferment above the evident good of (ill and the i>lain will of Ihe majority. Republican workers, generally, have decided that the renomination n£. riic -short-term officers will best units the forces for tho campaign. It has be/ni the custom to tender a second nomination to two-year olliccrs. Good politics suggests that precedent should, in tb.is, govern tho county convention. "When tlie chances for success were shadowy they gave their time and energy lo the final victory of the Eagle, They have honored tho party by their faithful service of the people. Tlio county ticket, will be made up openly. Discretion will be the watchword. The ticket wlM be a winner. It will be unassailable. Those who are at this time especially deserving, should not. by any chance, be slighted, LIVELY MEETING • _'i ./* • ' • • Primaries all Over the County Well Attended. REPUBLICANS ALIVE.

Tb*y Earn About i>8 Much »H Cobbler or Dressmakcrii, In the countiy, whether in the east or west, north or south, the corapen- rntion fo school-teachers is so small that it seems wonderful that those who receive these salaries can live on them. These salaries raugu from ?100 a year to $000 a year. The average for a Kchool year of nbov.t scvon months is S31S.3G for men ;md #2G2.0i for women. The duties of, a country scljool-tcachcv usually includes denning ihe school- ^ house "and build inff (iivs. Tl>cse duties crc not always considered liartJshipa by the i^ersous who tnl-:c such posts, as the women in :ill save exceptional cases have bocn nccustorncd to such work at horix% and tho men lind it easy enough to get pupils to do the work in ex- chang-e for "favors in school. In the country schools of the Uuitcd States there lire three times as many women as men, the percentage being- a little greater than in the cities. Jlost country schools have only one teacher, and that teacher is required, to instruct children of n.!I agrfs and in all branches up to {grammar ;uid algebra. The amount of either grammar or algebra dispensed in these schools is quite inconsiderable, as these nre branches of knowledge not in demand. For what these country teachers do, as the schools are at- present established, it is likely that they are quite adequately paid, A village schoolmaster will earn as much in the year as the cobbler; the schoolmistress will make as much in the year as the dressmaker. They do not belong:, as a.g-en- cral thing-, to a class better educated than the cobbler or dressmaker, and they do not work any harder. Thoec of them who have thought alxmt. their calline, and who have ever been moved to feel that frreat. responsibilities devolved upon -them, have realized that the conditions .were such that they could do next to nothing, and usually they have griven over any efforts to secure a change in school administration. — Forum. .
