New Laws Provide for Free Text Books, Certificates to Run Two Years and Directors to Serve One Year, The new law requiring' teachers itt the common schools to be examined ia civics and economics will go in force July 4th. As all certificates expire August first, Snpt. Beed says that e'v* ery teacher in the county will be required to pass in those branches. The new requirement is giving not only the teachers but the state and county sup*: erintendents much worry, and the la£ ter have received more than one oil*, cular on the subject. While examination in the new branches is compul* sory, thfl examinations will by common consent be made easy and by legal limr itation they will be only elementary. State Superintendent Sabin says in re? gard to the new study: "The addition of this branch cannot fail to be of value to all teachers, and it has the effect to call anew to the attention of schopl, authorities the desirability of this kind: of instruction. The hand-book for Io-,, wa teachers contains enough upon civil government to enable any teacher mastering that work, to pass an exam-, ination upon the subject." Mr. Sabin has issued a circular giving the new school laws, and radical, changes having been made at the rey} cent session, a brief recapitulation will be of wide interest. An important provision is that of chapter 37, \yhiclt affords districts the opportunity tosup> ply free books, so that children may continuously enjoy the privileges of school. The state superintendent believes that if districts will take action in accordance with the'spirit of thela'w the percentage of school .attendance may be materially increased. A meeting of the legal voters of districts and an affirmative vote of a majority is required to authorize the purchase and loan of books. When the system is adopted any pupil can buy books at cost when desired, and no pupil already supplied with books can get them from the board by loan. Another chapter en- powers school boards to establish kindergarten departments. Chapter 39, besides including "elementary civics and'fcconoimcs" in the.certificate, .provides as well for the issue of firstclass certificates to run for a term of two years. This will necessarily be a high grade certificate, and likely it will tend to lessen the number of flrst : class certificates. Another law limits the terms of school directors hereafter elected to one year. PERSONAL MENTION, Prof. P. H. Slagle, who has been principal 'of the Strawberry Point schools for the past two years, is at home tor his summer vacation. Next week he goes to Cornell college to receive his diploma as Master of Philosophy, having completed a three years' post graduate course in the science of botany. Prof. Slagle is a wide awake, energetic and thoroughly posted instructor and one who is up to date in all matters pertaining to school work. He has been unanimously re-elected to his present position for a third year, which is proof that his work is appreciated by the people of Strawberry Point. Victor Ekholm, of Seneca township, was in Algona yesterday, to see the town, as he said. Mr. Ekholm had his sight destroyed in 1882 by a powder blast, and up to last fall could only tell the difference between daylight and darkness. He consulted specialists only to grow worse, and was nearly totally blind when Capt. Jeanson prevailed upon him to go to Des Moines, where he was treated by Dr. Polosky. This is why he can see the town, His sight is improving all the while, Pearl Pugh's brother, who is well known in Algona, and who has been living in St, Louis for the past year, had left the city the day before the great cyclone, It was a relief to his friends to learn that he had escaped the great disaster. Harvey Ingham has been absent at Iowa City since Thursday, attending the annual meeting of the regents of the State University and enjoying tbe commencement exercises of the institution, Miss Aimee Wallace came home from hev work in Chicago last week.

Frank Echt is home from Chicago, where he had been for some time. Miss Ella Rutherford is home from Chicago. Capt. Sweeney, U. S. A-. San Diego, Cal. says: "SWlpb's Catarrh Jftewedy Is the I have ever found THE ST. LOUIS PLATFORM. Walter Wellman in Chicago Times- Herald, June 8: There will be nostrad- dle on the silver question in the republican platform. The Indiana plank is likely to be adopted without important modification. Within ti few days information has reached Washington through trustworthy sources to the effect that the managers of the Mcltiii- ley campaign are determined to place their candidate upon a strong, honest platform which will not have to be explained in the campaign. Major McKinley himself said a few days ago, in conversation with a visitor who is a delegate to the SC; Louis convention: "I want the platform to contain a declaration against the free coinage ut' silver by this country alone." He after- Ward said he liked the Indiana platform. The resolutions adopted by the Indiana republicans were as follows: \Ve tire flrm and emphatic in our demand for honest money. We believe that our money should not be inferior to the money of the mo.«t enlightened Dations of the earth. We are unalterably opposed to every scheme that threatens to debase or depreciate our currency. We favor the use of silver as currency, but to the extent only and under such regulations that its parity \yith gold can be maintained, and in consequence are opposed to the iree, Unlimited and independent coinage of silver at a ratio of 16 to 1." This platform may be modified by the injection of some reference to the possibility of the remouetization of silver by international action, but its distinguishing feature—opposition to the free coinage of silver—will be left undisturbed if the wishes of Major McKinley and his nearest friends are respected. Such a platform ought to be satisfactory to most opponents of free silver. It may not suit eastern bankers andfother extremists who want a bald declaration for the gold standard, but it will probably be sufficient for the great massof business men and rational citizens who understand that in order to state one's views frankly and explicitly, it is not necessary to use language that is offensively hostile or implacable. Such a platform as this will not have to be explained. There is nothing equivocal about it. It wobbles neither in purpose nor in language. It will be the direct antithesis of the platform to bs adopted at Chicago, and nothing better can be said for it.

NORA SPRING DROWNING. *: A Register special of Saturday -ka.ys: M 7 ; "'$'$ Atkinsdhl ofClear Lake; •VTernon Gait, 6f Albert Lea, and Roy C. Slosson, of North wood, were drowned at Nora Springs about 11 o'clock to-day. They were all members of the senior class at the Nora Springs Seminary, and were out with one of the professors rehearsing their graduating orations. With two or three others they decided to go in bathing. The professor admonished them against it, as they were not good swimmers. The water was shallow where they went in, but one of them by accident stepped off into a deep hole, and the others in trying to rescue him were drawn down and they all perished together. The other boys at some distance thought they were diving, but soon discovered they were sinking for the last time. The bodies were all recovered. The calamity has cast a deep gloom over the school and community. NOBTH-WE8TEBN EXCURSIONS. NATIONAL 11EP0BLICA.N CONVENTION.
