The Tipton Advertiser loams tlmt Wheeler & Mofflt received notice last Saturday from Hustod & Boies, attorneys for tho defendant in tho celebrated Jones county calf case, that tttoy should file u petition for a rehearing of tho ubovo case in tho supreme court. Possibly there is a chance for the younger son and attorney—that is to bo—to grow rich out of tho case, as tho correspondent in Now York Tribune quoted in last week's issue, feared it would not be realized in view of tho recant decision of the supreme court. If it is really tho purpose of tho counsel to petition for u rehearing, as before stated, and that prayer is granted, tho end after all has not yet been reached and may not be as near as was anticipated. There may bo money in it yet for somebody. ^_____^, Hon.

Thoso who woro familial 1 with tho work dono in tho country schools oight yours uyo, before Mr. Wilkinson, then county superintendent, Houurod u uniformity of text books, and aro familiar with tho work dono there today, will not hesitate to say that ono of tho prhno causes of tho vust improvement found thoro IIUH boon thin sumo uniformity, And this might wtill continue were it not that tho boards in Homo townships aro ulroady chunking because they fool that bettor books aro made now than woro inudo eight years ago, and that they can bo bought for less money. Wo believe in uniformity of text books for Kossuth county. Wo believe that . bettor results can bo obtained from uniformity than from non-uniformity, and wo suggest that tho boards of directors wait another your before changing books. By that time other counties will havo tested tho new law, and we believe our own sub-directors will have soon tho need of signing tho required petition, thus giving the people a chance to express an opinion by ballot on this important subject.
