Teachers hare been endeavoring, by using all means at their command, to secure the return ot their, former pupils who are not. attending any school or. engaged In any useful calling. . . j Departments hare been consolidated when Eracucable, particularly in the . Be Philip, ive Oak, Paulding; and others. It will oe remembered that some eight or ten teachers were withdrawn from toe colored schools, at the annual election in October, last, aad their Dlaces not tilled.

I then asked him what was between him and Bice; when he went on his engine, saying : I don't want to hare anything to do with yon.' Rem arkln g that I was sorry that he and Rice were on bad terms, and Gibson promising not to say any more about it, I left. - , At half - past 6 o'clock we were all three at supper, and when we' had finished Gibson ' went out, - followed by - Bloe and ) ' myself. - Rice . said to me, Billy, this . fellow - Gibson, looks like no nas got it u zor me. - ' - 1 suggested that we go to our room, but Rioe refused, saying: "Well, I'll go, but, I want to see what Gibson has to say." At the corner we met Gibson, and Bice went np to him and said 4 "If there is anything between you and me let's settle it here." - Gibson replied: "No, I haven't any hard feelings against you at all." - Let's go and take a drlak, then' says Bloe, and uttering these words he turned, when Gibson fired. Bice exclaimed, "I'm shot," and drew his revolver and returned the fire, when Gibson1 fired the second shot; I went over to pick Bice up, when Gibson exclaimed " You i I'll aire it to you." and tired on me.
