The C, Bishop Grain company of Buchanan, Mich., has sent out the following notice to Michigan farmers. "Believing as we do, living .for the present instead of anticipating the future, we make the following offer to those we have wheat to offer: We will pay one Mexican dollar per bushel for No. 2 red wheat or No. 1 white wheat in quantities of 500 bushels, or over, delivered at our various stations at which we buy wheat. This price is on a basis of today's market of both wheat and silver. Acceptance will not be refused, however, unless there is a material change in the market. In explanation of the above will say that we would be glad to take small lots of wheat on the same basis were It not for the expense and trouble of shipping in Mexican dollars In small amounts. However, wheat holders can club together, and, if wheat is sola to us In lots of 1,000 bushels or over, we will make the seller a present of two good American silver dollars for *ach thousand bushels delivered to us on terms stated above. As the Mexican dollar contains more silver than our American silver dollar all that is necessary to do in order to realize ?1 per bushel for your grain is to store your Mexican dollars until our free silver friends win, as they assure us that they arc certain to, then get them coined free by the government. Do not wait for free silver to make money plenty, but accept our offer if you have wheat to sell. This Is not intended as a bluff, but aij a mercantile business proposition, and is open to your acceptance." -This circular has created a furore among the farmers and it sets them to thinking.—Detroit Free Press.fDem.) A GOOD SCHEME. . Harvey Made'r.thc cigar dealer In the Jordan buildlng'on Fourth street, has invented a new advertising scheme. He proposes to give a ticket with each purchase made at his store,, on which will be registered a guess on the number of votes received by the Presidential candidates of the two leading parties, namely McKlnley and Hobart and Bryan and Sewell, In Cass coiiuty. The Republican guesser who comes nearest the actual number of votes cast for these candidates will receive ten dollars in gold, the best money on earth and the Democrat whose guess is nearest the Bryan vote will get ten silver dollars, worth one hundred cents each now, but if free silver succeeds In gaining the day, they will be worth but fifty-three cents each. The Republicans have the best of this guessing contest,, as no matter which way the cat jumps, they will get at the least ten good dollars, and possibly their mpney may be worth one-half more than the other fellow's, if the free silver advocates succeed in getting their repudiation scheme enacted Into law..

CLOSES TODAY Gathering of Teachers Will Disperse Tonight. : YESTERDAY'S WORK The County Graduates Hear D. MJ Qeeting Talk! The county institute was opened yesterday morning by W. L. Bryan, who. after calling the attention of the audi- ouce to the plateaux or standstill place's n mental development', gave place to Dr. Dennis, who said: "The growth of which Prof. Bryan has jnst spoken, is taking place iu the spiritual world. Uso takes place In the physical world. A boy may for a' year of two cease to grow and after (ill his friends and p'nr- •uts have been very much alarmed, he will shoot up and grow to be a. six- footer." Many interesting illustra-. tlous were given. Dr. Dennis concluded ills lecture on "Evolution" in the afternoon. Ho also spoke of tbo point at which man receives Ills soul. No one knows whether the soul comes to man immediately 'or not. In conclusion he said 1 . "I wish to say a word about the growth of the church. I don't believe that there is a person In the house who believes in transnbstnntlation. Three hundred years ago if a person did not bolieve iu trnusubstiintiatlon, he was beheaded. So the church grew. New occasions teach new duties. Time makes ancient duties void." Prof. A. Jones took the floor at the conclusion of Dr. Dennis's morning talk. Ho said: KNOWING AND TEACHING. "It is one thing to know a thing and another thing to teach it. It is one thing to live and another thing to exist. Some teachers complain of having to teach addition; they are not teachers. Think of a miimmy trying to stand before a school trying to inspire life. The plateaux that have been spoken of tills morning we have in the teaching profession." Prof. Jones was on the program for a lecture in the afternoon, but his time was occupied by Stnte Superintendent D. M. Gectiup.' In the morning session Prof. Jones was succeeded by Prof. E. B. Bryan who quoted from and commented, on Josh Billings's writings. He recited the following quotation: .,..,.,, "As a rule, man's a foblV When it's hot, he wants it cool; When it's cool, lie wants it hot; Always wanting what is not." In the afternoon Supt. Geeting occupied almost all Prof.-Bryan's time. The flfteeu mluutos he had he occupied in telling stories on "Sympathy." They were greatly enjoyed 'by flic audience:. D. M .GEETING TALKS.".. '.".. State Superintendent p! M. Geeting addressed the meeting "yesterday .afternoon. He'said: "I did,not:come- here prepared to speak, I came here to rest." He then told -an anecdote"of himself when he taught a country school,, and- bis laughable experience'with a large' v good-natured student. His .story, was greatly 'appreciated . by. .the audience and afforded much merriment. He told of his early life and- his- association with two friends. One -was•' -.<v jolly good-natured fellow and "the"oilier was a 'pessimist. They' work 'together now but the good-natured: one ., owns' the business and the one who was/cop: stantly complaining ., Is. lils -.employe, and is still-dls'satlsQed; with;'everything.-' He does not become interested In his work and consequently iflo'es'not earn his salary.

The. spirit of a teacher Is most effective whether good or bad. A teacher should not Ipbk-.qn his work as a drudgery. AVo should have a greater faith.in our profession^. He told how when he first. commenQ.e(l teaching school the teachers w-ere hired by the school board for so much- and board, and the parents of the children took turns .boarding the teacher. "We do not make ourselves felt, in the world as we should. We should know of the home life of a pupil before passing judgment oh him. AVhat snail be the qualifications of'a teacher? The qualifications of .a teacher should.be more than 'scholarship." ., ••••;' COUNTY COMMENCEMENT.-' D. M. Geeting delivered the address to the graduates of the common'school' last evening at the hlgli' school^bulld ing before a room full of people/. He said: "A great deal of authority ha?

I am glad to'see that eighty-nine pupils have this i "year completed the eighth year course. It is the duty of the township trustees to do all' in their power to enlarge the facilities for , education. We should join In assisting the trustee to'perform the.duty which, falls upon- him. The law which is Impartial says that the trustee must provide such facilities as far as possible. "The trustee'says: 'What can I do as'an'officer of my township?' "We should assist him, for he must do' it. I don't wonder that a parent is proud of a. child who graduates. I am in-favor of the common school ideas and compelling the boy to go to school duriiig thu lug.il' school age. "The plan of sending a child from the country to the city to receive a Uglier education when only fourteen years of age is not a good one. He should have the facilities at home.

The State Fair is nearly here once more, being this year ibe 14th to the' 10th of Sept.. and the managers are actively preparing for the event. The premium list .is being mailed on application and the changes made will interest exhibitors. Especially is this true in the live stock department where the changes give three premiums where before there was awarded but two. All diplomas have been abandoned arid cash prizes substituted. The number of premiums are thus greatly increased and the live stock exhibitor that this year fails to receive an award will certainly be very badly outclassed. Entries in all departments close Sept. 7th, sad exhibitors should write for a list at once. Address Ch'as. F. Kennedy, Room 14, State House, Indianapolis, Ind. PERSONAL. T. .T.
