TEACHERS TAKE COOSSEJ. #' Large and Enthusiastic Cdnveh- tion of Kossuth County Mild tfi this 6ity Saturday—V*tidu*fM#iiti«i Questions of School Insttuction and Polity are Debated—Convention at Bancroft in May. : ' _„ County Teachers' convention, held in Algona last Saturday, was a booming success. There were upwards of one hundred teachers p?]esea;t f and the Sigh School fo$m,was ' : ed. There were niiine'rou.8 read, but these only introduced topics treated, and opened the wa; animated discussions, which erally participated in.

As a member of the school board I desire to say, that the estimate mad.fe by the school board at the time of joating notices for the annual election nade a mistake, in this, they omitted ,o take into consideration the $2,500 ,hat will be paid in during the current ^ear. It was their purpose to ask only ,he amount necessary to pay the out- itanding bonds, of 14,000 and interest 'or two years which will be flppfoxi* inately $4,370; there is now on hand about $400 and the levy of a year ago was $2,500, making $3,900; so that only about $500 additional will toe requited, and that is all that will be asked at the election. The board Would not, as We understand the law, be warranted, in evying more than enough to meet the lUtstanding bond without announcing he purpose for which it Was wanted. ; . Gteo.

The board evidently does not propose, to let pass any chance to apply the tuberculin test so long as any; mrt of the appropriation to cover the expense of injections remains undig- mrsed. So last week pr,,E. E, Sayeirs teceived from QoVi ;Jackson a peremptory command to test the Chipman. cows, and 'taking With him Charley McCall, a recent graduate of the voter- nary department of the State Agricul- turaVCollege, he went up there last Friday and spent that day and the next making a careful test. There were ten cows in the Chipman herd, and seven of these were tested, the other three being with calf and so not liable to the reactionary effects of 'the tuberculin test. The seven tested were found to be entirely sound, not one of them showln' feverv The result is r^as- suring.tqithe farmers of thecounty aqd will put at rest any suspicion that the> tlairy' 'herds of KosBUth are genej?- j$]y in6ctijate<3( 'with tuberculosis.
