Judge Ward remarked: that' pur voters should remember "that so' long as' Whiteslde' county has been a part of the State of Illinois there; never has been a time -when our people have had the opportunity to vote for a' candidate of her. own for Circuit Judge, and every voter should how take a pride in going to 'thfi'polla and ca,etlnga vote for Judge Ramaay.,.,; •'„•> ,•-..., .'.- : -. ,; '•'_.•• ... .., A.

Wroten/ GIBSON'S SCHOOL HISTORY. Our Jfrof. Gibson \Vrltei A Unique History •! . of Hla Country. iQ'speakltig of this new" school history,'the Inter Ocean says: "This addition to the many school jooks of United States history al- text reads' in the field',is noteworthy for sevei al reasons. In the first place,though not the very first, perhaps, it is one of the first history text books to be published in Chicago, representing purely Western work in writing and printing, and it is a book that reflects the I ighest credit upon the enterprise of th^ publisher, as well as upon the scholarship: and skill of its author. Secor, dly, it Is noticeable because In the p 'Oparation and arrangement of ite -contemt8~the convenience of the," book for toVuse of teachers is not alone consider^d, but its usefulness' aa a factor in thej education of young people. Mr. Gibson, •• who was fpr__many_yeflrs a Superintendent of. schools, well says school time Is not a time of harvest, but of planting and growth, and that muchjof the value of historical study lies ii^ the movement toward a broader culture and in stimulating influences toWar I further reading. Wherefore, he hai, as he says, arranged his book with 116 view of aiding the student injire iking away from the habit of studyfag the printed page rather than the thought expressed by it. Toward this end he has availed himself of'the topical plan- in . arranging the obiter, also of 9, .large..use of ,mapa and charta, agd a plan of suggested parallel reading, which bring in not only other histories but historic fiction, historic " geography, and elementary civics. The maps, of which fifty-six are used, are most admirable, surpassing in useful quality any that we have ever before seen in a school book of this kind. Mr. Gibson, who was himself a soldier in the Federal army, has given aaunusal amount of space to the Civil War.- This he has done because he regards this war of especial importance in our history. It might be said that, though the results of the war were of the highest importance, the movements of brigades and army corps that brought about the subjugation of thje South-are-not-in-themselves-of much significance., A child can understand causes and consequences of the war, though he may not have learned the name of a single General on either side. Still, this close attention to the movements of armies arouses young interest, and calls out desire for fuller knowledge of those great events, a result much to be desired. The book throughout is warmly commened to the examination of all teachers concerned in historical instruction. We can safely say that examination will lead to approval." TO BE MARRIED IN JUNE. Thoraa* CrAWforU and UUa Helen Brook- fleld to be United. " Invitations were issued today for the wedding of Mr. Thomas Crawford and Miss Helen Thirza Brookneld, which will take place at the home qf Miss Brookfield's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Green, Wednesday morning, the second of June, at 9 o'clock. • • Mr. Crawford, the electrical engineer for the Sterling Gas and Electric Light Company, is a sou of Mrs. D.
