I take great Interest in education and dis- cuss our public school system whenever an opportunity presents itself, and I will give your readers my own idea on oue particu- lar point of our present school law, viz : The county office tobe occupied by a coun- ty fudge or county superintendent. We could do better without said officer and ■ave for our children about $1.000 per year in each county In the state, which is uow paid to the occupant of this office. The ■tats board of education does now appor- tion the tree school fund to the different counties, cities and towns controlling their own schools in the state, and could us well apportion the funds to the different dis- tricts in each county, if the law was so amended as to require the trustees of each district to ...

Editor Mekoüry:—As my piece on text iiooki and the Normal school came be* fore the public In your Issue of April 11, i will contribute another short piece. The subjects on which 1 am writing are sim- ple and easily understood. Everybody ought to be able to understand why we need a uniform series of text books; it is because we could have them published at less than hall the present cost. All those who have sense enough to need books know this to be a fact. And then it would oompel the teacher to be satisfied with the public books and teach the kind the law prescribes. If you are able to buy books it don't make any difference how many kinds you have, but when you are hardly able to leed and clothe your children and spare them to go to school, it is rather pinching to buy books to suit every teacher. Brethren, realize this faot and lend your power to assist in making the ehange. Give your earnest co-opera...
