UBLIC FRIDAY MARCH 10, 1893. MAKES A DISCOVERY. Representative Lind, of Minne- sota, has discovered in the Sher- man bond purchasing amendment to the sundry civil bill an objec- tion which he says will defeat the bill unless the senate recedes. He claims that under this amendment the secretary of the treasury will have power to retire the entire greenback circulation of ¡li360,000,- 000. The Sherman amendment provides for this issue of bonds un- der the resumption act of 1875. That act provided for the cancella- ion of the greenbacks when they were redeemed. There was an amendment to the resumption act, passed early in the 80s, which pro- vided that the greenbacks as soon as redeemed might be reissued. The Sherman amendment makes no reference to the amendatory or reissue act, and Lind holds that all greenbacks redeemed under the Sherman amendment must be can- celed, and that the currency will be contracted to the amount of the redemption. As there is nothing in the Sherman amendment...

EDUCATIONAL. BY K. B EW1.NG The most prominent and wide- awake teachers of the county met together 011 the last Saturday in February. It did them good to see each other. They talked a good deal about teaching school. They talked about thorough work and about practical branches. There- suit of the talks seemed to be a kind of unanimity of opinion that meth- ods cannot be cut, dried, and laid up for use ; that generalship and variety are always in demand. ' The teachers'will meet again on the last Saturday in March. The meeting will be at the Weatherford college building. There will be music and reciiations to spice up the proceedings. Local taxation, norinalb, reading, and the ultimate end of schools will be talked over. Sain Small came, saw, and con- quered. He was a powerful edu- cative force for good. The men who brought him here deserve the fervent thanks of all. The city public schools will close May 19. The State Teachers' association convenes at San Antonio on the 28th of June...

The gain over last year was 77. I'orsicana has elected a new su- perintendent. The city schools close May 19. The oratorical contest on the 7th was an interesting and pleasant affair. J. C. Wilson of Weather- ford received the first prize and W. H. Britnberry of Ft Worih re- ceived the second. It is a very hard task for men so young to face an audience so large. Doubtless most of the^roung men felt a weak- ness in the knees, a sinking in the chest, and a suspension of the memory when they faced the mul- titude. Such an effort tries a young man's grit. Besides those who received prizes, there were others who made good speeches. The admission of South vVeath- erford will make it necessary to have two more teachers in the city schools.
