JOHN <i, SMITH'S OPINION OF THE Sheriff Stephens was staying in town one clay last week and it transpired after the passenger train arrived from the east what his business was He took in tow a sleek looking fellow who was wanted in the southern part of the state. The sheriff took him to Marshalltown the same evening and delivered him over to the authorities. Some of the orators of Wesley went out to the Ivernan school house Monday evening to get up u debating club ami get a chance to let off some gas. Ihey propose going again and all better turn out and hear the eloquence of the Daniel Websters of Wesley. We had the pleasure of looking at as nne a bred colt, as ever came to Weslev the property of E. E. Waite. The colt is a yearling, purchased last summer of Judge J II. Cartwright, Oregon, Illinois. Warrant, bay colt, No. 11233 registered in Wallace's American Trotting Register, Vol. 8. The cult is bred from some of ihe best trottiug stock in the United States.

You w 11 1 e better lifted to teach his children ir in way to please him and at the same time benefit the children more than if you did not know the parents.

All are cordially THK TEXT HOOK QUKSTION. The time has come when every taxpayer voter and patron of our public schools should consider this important question. The time will undoubtedly come when everyone will be called upon to express their opinion on this point at the ballot box. That opinion should be given with intelligence. Blindness on such a vital question will prove ruinous to the educational facilities of this state, to which we and our neigh- •f in ,,$! ier states Point with much pride. "The greater tbe extent of the uniformity the better," is the statement often made. Yes, providing the machinery necessary in operating such nmtormity is not too cumbrous and that much supplementary work be introduced in all branches. For these reasons good objections are taken to state or national uniformity. Pupils confined to one line of texts grow narrow. The mind is reared like the bird in a cage; does not know the immensity of space on all sides. For this reason a set of books should be exchanged every seven or eight years. It is the individual of great mental breadth that takes and occupies the advanced stations in lite. To the individual that keeps running in the same old weather beaten, deep cut track, so deep that only the hair of his head is perceptible, lite becomes monotonous, troublesome and hardly worth living. County 'uniformity, with the right to change every five to eight years will best subserve all .practical purposes. The machinery can be easily handled and troubles that arise in township uniformity would disappear. The poorer classes that move from year to year are to be considered. Township uniformity has been tried again and again and it was through the power of leading educators of this state that the new law was passed. Men that have made these things a study for life surely ought to be competent judges on this matter, and it county uniformity did not present educational advantages no such effort would have been made.
